Son of Asbury and Rachel Alma Baxley Ammons.

MARION - Jim Ammons, middle aged farmer of Marion, was fatally wounded at a filling station at Pee Dee, eight miles west of Marion, this afternoon, he being shot three times by Andrew Tyndall, a white youth of about 19 years of age. Tyndall made his escape from the scene and has not been located yet.

Tyndall is supposed to have been mentally deranged at the time of the shooting. When Ammons lay dying, he declared that he did not know why Tyndall had shot him.

Earlier in the day, Tyndall had been at the filling station and after having some words with the proprietor, Boyd Stanley, is said to have whipped out a pistol and fired once at Mr. Stanley. The bullet cut through a part of Mr. Stanley's clothing. Later Tyndall seemed to calm down and left the station, returning some time later, when he opened fire on Ammons.

Published in The State, May 22, 1926

The 1930 census shows Andrew J. Tyndall, age 23, a prisoner in the State Penitentiary in Columbia, SC.
