Joe W. Matthews, 66, resident of Borger for the past 13 years, was found dead in a Sinclair hotel room where he resided, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday. Matthews was an oil well driller.

He was last seen at 6:45 1.m. Saturday when he asked a fellow roomer for an aspirin tablet, stating that he had a headache.

Found by the hotel owner, Matthews was pronounced dead by G.C. Knight, coroner, who said he believed the aged driller died following a heart attack.

Born August 15, 1879 in Claysville, Pa., he came to Borger in 1933 from Breckenridge. He is survived by two brothers, Homer Matthews of Mobeetie and Forrest Matthews of Washington, Pa.; two sisters, Mrs. Mary Hecker, Sagertown, Pa., and Mrs. Jaunita [sic] Sears of Houston, Pa.
