Mr. R. F. Kinard, who lived on the place of Judge John Murrow, two and a half miles west of Tifton, happened to an accident Monday afternoon which resulted in his death Monday night, shortly before 12 o'clock.
Mr. Kinard, accompanied by his wife, had gone into the woods, a quarter of a mile away, for the purpose of getting wood. A tall, dead pine, which he decided to cut, had the limb of a tree lodged on it, the butt-end of the limb penetrating the ground. After Mr. Kinard had sawed the standing tree, it refused to fall. He sawed as high as he could reach(on) the lodged limb and not getting it sawed far enough, struck the limb with his ax, and the tree and limb both fell.
He saw his danger and tried to get out of the way, but was struck by the limbs at the top of the pine. He received several ugly bruises on his body and his left shoulder and left foot were broken; his skull was crushed and he was unconscious in fifteen minutes after the accident and remained so up to the time of his death.
Mrs. Kinard screamed for assistance which soon arrived, and the wounded man was carried home. Drs. Hendricks and McCrea were soon summoned and did all they could for his suffering, but saw that there was no hope for his recovery. Mr. Kinard's only words after he was struck was to ask his wife for water soon after the accident happened.
Mr. Kinard, had he lived till March, would have been 73 years of age. He has been a member of the Methodist church for many years with his membership at Bethesda church, at Ty Ty. He was an excellent citizen and universally loved by all who knew him.
His burial was postponed from Tuesday afternoon until Wednesday awaiting the arrival of Mr. W. A. Kinard and Mrs. S. C. Mayo, of Reddick, Fla; Mrs. J. F. Strobell of Corbett's Mill, Mr. J. L. Kinard, Moultrie, and Mrs. E. W. Camp of near Omega, children of the deceased.
The sympathies of all are extended the bereaved family in the loss of their loving father and husband.
