Letter dated July 5, 1912, Clifton Tenn to Mrs. I. A. Geist of Waterloo, Ia. Dear Madam: Dr. L. B. Doxey met his death by drowning at this place some time during June. He and his wife were on their way from Savannah, Tenn. to Perryville, Tenn. to take a train at that place and remained here one night as the run of the boats necessitated it. Dr. Doxey went to the wharf boat to change their trunks from one boat to another and it was while engaged in this act that he fell into the river and was drowned. No one saw him when he fell. An inquest was held over the body and a verdict of accidental drowning was reached. It is supposed that he either lost his balance while changing the trunks frome one boat to the other or that his heart became affected from over exertion as he was known to have a weak heart. The body was interred in the Clifton cemetery and a marker valued at $7.00 was placed at the grave by Miller Bros., undertakers, of this place upon request of Mrs. Doxey. I understand this marker has never been settled for. I regret that I am unable to send you a paper containing an account of the accident. Very respectfully, C. C. Stribling, Post Master.
