Obituary from Charlotte Obsever
March 4, 1892
Death from an overdose of Morphine.
Mr. Durant McCall, who lives near Oates cotton mills, through mistake or with suicide intent (it is not known which) took an overdose of morphine last night, and before anyone knew of the act he had passed beyond medical aid. Mr. McCall came up town last night to purchase some morphine for a sick lady living near his house, he being in a nervous frame of mind caused by excessive drink,bought a big dose for himself and it is supposed that he took both doses, as he went straight to his room and when found was dead.
