From the Braxton Democrat 21 August 1891 pg. 3:

"The wife of Mr. Aaron Bennett of Knowles Creek died on the 15th inst., having been taken suddenly ill on the 9th. Symptoms indicated poisoning and an inquest was held by Squire Hardman. Drs. Kidd and Evirt made a post mortem and the jury returned a verdict, in substance, that deceased came to death from poison taken or procured by means unknown. The evidence showed that Mrs. Bennett took sick shortly after breakfast on the 9th and her husband and one or two other members of the family who drank coffee became sick and vomited, while those who drank no coffee did not get sick."
