L.A. Bartholomew Died Suddenly on Way to Salisbury

Aged Bynumville Resident Suffered Heart Attack and Died on Lawn at Miss A. Poschel's Home

L. A. Bartholomew, prominent Bynumville citizen died suddenly about 2 o'clock Saturday afternoon from a heart attack.

Mr. Bartholomew had started to drive to Salisbury, in company with the star mail carrier, Tony Gatterman. The gentleman had been to Hamden to pick up the afternoon mail and were returning to the highway when Mr. Bartholomew complained of feeling ill. Mr. Gatterman was attempting to open the ventilator in his pick-up truck when his passenger fell against his arm. By this time he had reached the highway at the Pleyer corner, where he hailed a passer-by for help, and they took Mr. Bartholomew to the home of Miss Anna Poeschl. Lifting him from the truck they placed him on the lawn and attempted to revivie him, but he was beyond their aid.

A physician was called and pronounced him dead and the coroner, after questioning a few witnesses said that death was due to heart failure.

Mr. Bartholomew, though able to go about , had been in poor health and under doctor's care for heart trouble for some time.

- Lucius Arthur (Alvin?) Bartholomew, was born near Waddington, N. Y. on December 14, 1866, making him 73 years, 9 months and 21 days of age at the time of his death. He was one of eight children born to Lewis and Abbie Rutherford Bartholomew, natives of New York. All of these have preceded him in death, with the exception of one sister, Miss Alta Bartholomew of Bynumville.

Mr Bartholomew was united in marriage on June 26, 1901 to Miss Lena Julia Kemper. To this union were born seven children, all of whom survive: Jesse Bartholomew, Alvin Bartholomew, Miss Irene Bartholomew, Troy Bartholomew, Harold Bartholomew all of Bynumville, Miss Opal Bartholomew of Washington, D. C., Mrs Ralph Hulett of Carlenville, Ill. He is also survived by six grand children, Wanda and Jean Hulett of Carlenville, Ill., Katheryn, Richard, Janice, Marilyn Bartholomew of Bynumville.

At the age of seven years, Mr. Bartholomew accompanied his parents to Missouri where they located on a farm northeast of Salisbury. Later he moved to Bynumville where he and his family have since resided. Much of his life was spent in farming, but for a number of years, after his marriage, Mr. Bartholomew engaged in the milling business in Bynumville. He also did much of the tiling on the farms in the vicinity of Salisbury and Bynumville.

He was a good citizen, a loving father, a helpful neighbor and his death will be mourned by a large circle of friends. He was an honest, hard working man with firm convictions on the major issues of life.

Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at Bynumville Union church, the Rev. W. N. Gallon in charge and burial was in the Salisbury City Cemetery.

Obit was dated Oct 5, 1940 in handwriting. It was probably published on Monday October 7th. The newspaper is unknown.
