ED GLOVER SHOT DURING QUARREL MONDAY NIGHT
Horace McNabb Claims He Was Threatened By Other Man
A quarrel which arose at the supper table in the home of Edward Glover, in the Yum Yum community, Monday evening led to his death a short time later at the hands of Horace McNabb, who had lived with the Glovers about five years.
McNabb who surrendered to Sheriff E. J. Guy a short time after Glover died from a blast from a shotgun, claims that he shot the other man in self defense.
Details garnered by the sheriff in his investigation showed that in the course of a quarrel at the table, Glover ordered the older man (McNabb is about 60) to leave his home. McNabb says as he was packing to get out, Glover came toward him with an axe handle in his hand and that he shot to save himself. The top of Glover's head was blown off by the blast.
The tragedy occurred about 9 o'clock Monday night, and McNabb was placed in the county jail a short time later to await a hearing.
Funeral services for Mr. Glover were held at 2:30 Wednesday afternoon at the residence, with the Rev. T. N. Hale officiating. Masonic services were held at the grave in the Somerville Cemetery.
Mr. Glover was born Somerville and was a lifelong resident of Fayette County. He was 38.
He leaves his wife, Mary Jo Byars Glover; two daughters, Barbara Jean and Evelyn Glover; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. R. C. Glover of Somerville; three sisters, Mrs. Ethel Roberts of Somerville, Miss Nadine Glover of of Somerville, Mrs. Clarence Boaz of Memphis; and eight brothers, John Robert and Alvin Glover of Somerville, James Glover of West Ridge, Ark., Malcolm Glover of Memphis, Lamon Glover of Camp Blanding, Fla., Mark Glover of Moscow, Acie Glover of the U. S. Navy and Albert Glover of the U. S. Army now serving in Europe.
