Richmond L. Perry, one of the pioneer residents of western Calcasieu and the oldest of the four brothers of that name who have extensive land and cattle interests in that section died yesterday at his home in Vinton.
The immediate cause of Mr. Perry's death was internal trouble resulting from an attack of typhoid fever. The family think that the remote cause was his being overcome by gas nearly two years ago while bathing in the pool at the Vinton oil well, an account of which was published in The American at the time. He was taken from the water unconscious from the fumes of gas and did not recover consciousness for 5 hours. It is not believed that he ever fully recovered from the effects of the accident.
Mr. Perry was a native of Calcasieu and was born 62 years ago. He was married twice, his first wife dying many years ago. His second wife and 10 children survive him.
