The body of Robert T. Hundley, 47-year-old Henry County farmer and furniture worker, was found yesterday afternoon on Kogers' Creek, between Fieldale and Stanleytown, He had been fatally wounded with a shotgun. The wound was self-inflicted. He was despondent over ill health. Members of his family said he had been unable to work at his position in the Stanley Furniture Company for several weeks on account of illness. He left the home about noon Friday, carrying a shot gun, and telling his family he was going crow hunting. Later three shots were heard, and one of the children went in the direction of the shot in search of him. She found him lying on the ground near the old Wilson Mill site.
Surviving are his wife, Mrs. Jesse Clark Hundley, and five children, Melvin, Buford, Crystal, Sue and Douglas Hundley, all at home.
