From the Richmond Times, Jun. 3, 1902:
Mr. William Hayes Atkinson died Sunday afternoon at his country home, in Henrico county, the result of what in its beginning was considered a trifling accident.
A week ago while walking near his barn Mr. Atkinson stepped upon a nail which pierced his shoe and entered his foot. The wound was for the time neglected, and blood poison set in Saturday night.
His condition grew steadily worse, and Sunday afternoon his nephew, Dr. Marmaduke Atkinson, of Newport News, was telegraphed for, and arrived at his uncle's bedside that evening.
Mr. Atkinson was forty-five years old. He was born in Richmond, and had lived here all his life. He leaves a widow who was a Miss Rowe, of Gloucester county, and five children - W. B., A. C., and Hunter Atkinson, and Misses Alice and Mabel Atkinson, one brother, Henry A. Atkinson, of this city, and two sisters, Mrs. W. J. Gentry of Richmond, and Mrs. J. A. Fleet, of Mathews county. Mr. Atkinson was a member of the Union Station Methodist Church.
His funeral will take place from Union Station Methodist Church to-day, at 3 o'clock.
The pall-bearers will be: Active - The officers of Union Council, Royal Arcanum.
Honarary: Messrs. John W. Hughes, J. T. Montgomery, Frank Bates, J. W. Woodward, Berry Waddill, C. E. Brauer, Adam Diacont and Samuel Flournoy.
