"Death of an Old Citizen
Says the Moberly Monitor
Mr. Ross Brooks, one of the oldest citizens of Randolph County, who lived near Renick, was kicked by a mule on Sunday last, from the effects of which he died on Tuesday.
On Sunday morning one of the boys was leading a mule, and Mr. Brooks was walking behind. He picked up a corn stalk and hit the mule, and received a kick in the lower bowel, from which he never recovered.
He was one of the oldest citizens of our county, and was highly esteemed by all who knew him."
