Here is an article about William Stevenson's demise. I've been researching Lyon Co, KS, Civil War soldiers and think this is the right person. I would like you to add the article but if you don't feel it is okay, that's fine. Thanks. Becky

AN OLD CITIZEN OF LYON COUNTY MURDERED

The following notice of the death of a former citizen of
Lyon County, escaped our notice until this week. We read it a week or two ago, but did not pay particular attention to it until it was copied into a Southwestern Kansas paper. Mr. Forest Stevenson was for many years a resident of this county, living at Forest Hill. His untimely death will be regretted by his many acquaintances in this county:

We are pained to learn that William Stevenson, four years a resident of Oswego, and C. Smith also a former resident
of this place and at one time deputy city marshal, both of whom have been for several months past working in the Joplin, Mo., lead mines, got into a heated dispute a week ago last Saturday at Lone Elm mining camp. Stevenson struck Smith with his fist, whereupon Smith retaliated by hitting Stevenson on the back of the head with a stone, fracturing his skull, from which effects death ensued the
following Wednesday. Stevenson was forty years of age, and leaves a wife and several children. Smith was taken to the Carthage jail for safe keeping where he awaits trial.--Oswego, Ind.
