From the 'Macon Telegraph', dated June 15, 1920 -

Waycross, June 14 - Mrs. George M. Wildes, aged 24, died this afternoon at a local hospital from the effects of a bullet wound received Saturday morning when a pistol, which her husband was cleaning, accidentally discharged. Mrs. Wildes was standing within three feet of her husband when the accident occurred, the bullet lodging in her shoulder.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow from the home of her mother, Mrs. L.A. Rogers, and will be conducted by Rev. Loy Warwick, pastor of the First Methodist Church. Interment will take place at Mount Pleasant Cemetery. Beside her husband, the deceased is survived by two small children, Rufus Edwin and Virgin (Virginia???)

A related article appeared in the same paper, on June 24, 1920, as follows:

Waycross, June 22 - George Wildes, charged with shooting his wife here several days ago, has been released. Wilde was cleaning his gun when the accident occurred. According to a statement by his wife, it was accidentally discharged.

A warrent for his arrest was sworn out by relatives of the deceased, Mrs. Wildes, but Solicitor General Allen D. Spence stated that evidence was not sufficient for further trial.
