From Anderson Herald October 1926..James Stottlemyer Struck by Interurban--Fatally Injured in an Accident Saturday Night
"James Stottlemyer, related to the well known Stottlemyer family in the eastern part of Hamilton county and the western part of Madison county, was seriously and perhaps fatally injured late Saturday when he was struck by a traction car in Pendleton. He was walking across the street at the time of the accident. He was rendered unconscious.
Soon after the accident he was taken to a hospital in Anderson and was reported Monday as suffering with hemorrhage of the brain. He is seventy-two years of age and it is said that he can not recover.
Mr. and Mrs. Stottlemyer spent Saturday with relatives, Mr. and Mrs. Ross Moore, near Lapel. and Mr. Stottlemyer went to Pendleton with Mr. Moore late in the afternoon to deliver milk. While Mr. Moore was making some business calls, Mr. Stottlemyer visited a store and was returning to the automobile when he was struck. Relatives were told by witnesses that the victim stepped in front of the interurban car after being confused by an automobile traveling just ahead of the traction car."
