I found that info to but now how to find where buried or article on how death occured from gunshot.
I googled "Free newspaper copies for Illinois".  One gave newspapers for Alexander Co. but cut off date was pre 1900. You might have the patience
to go through the five or six sites to see if one of them fits.  We also have
some great sleuths that may take a day or two to come back with an answer.  Good luck.
