The Death of Royal McCall

Jack McCall told me of the accidental death of his uncle Royal S McCall on the family farm long ago. I was a bit surprised when I found it mentioned in the September 21, 1888 edition of the Arkansas Gazette newspaper. Royal is buried in the Shady Grove Cemetery. The “G.W.” instead of “G.R.” was a fairly common typographical error when newspapers referred to George R McCall.
