The 1923 Headline Read!
"FOUR PHYSICIANS MEET Tragic DEATHS DURING THE LAST YEAR IN MORGAN COUNTY (The pertinent excerpt from the newspaper article reads):
Local observers are speaking of the loss of a number of its best physicians within the last few months and the tragic manner in which the last four who died have met their deaths.
The death of the late Dr. W. M. Dinsmore was tragic in that a small instrument led to his death. The wound caused blood poisoning and the official report signed by Nashville physicians who were attending him at the last stated blood poisoning caused the death of Dr. Dinsmore."
