William Six
The Democrat Thursday January 7, 1932
William Six, 53, a motor operator in Mine No. 5 near Rutland, was instantly killed Monday afternoon while running from county officers when he plunged over over a 75-foot cliff near Hoffner Dairy on Lincoln Hill and landed on his back and head on the rocks below. He suffered a broken neck and a crushed skull and death was instantaneous, Coroner Ewing said. Six came to Pomeroy Monday to have some teeth extracted and had eight teeth taken out by Dr. H.D. Brown. After the teeth were out, Six became intoxicated and later in the afternoon returned to Dr. Brown's office and asked to have more teeth extracted. He was refused and Dr. Brown called a taxi with the intention of sending him home but Six insisted on walking and in some way wondered to the Hoffner home on Lincoln Hill. The Hoffner family became frightened at his actions and called county officers. Deputy Otho Tracy and H.L. French answered the call and when they approached Six to take him into custody, he ran. The cliff at the rear of the Hoffner barn, a sheer drop that is estimated at 75 feet high, is protected by a three-strand fence. Six slid under the lower strand and fell over the cliff. The officers tried valiantly to catch him before he reached he fence to prevent the fall, but were unsucessful. The fatal accident occurred about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Relstives of the dead man were unable to account for him being on Lincoln Hill but it is supposed that he was out of his head and did not know where he was. He is survived by his widow, who was formerly a Miss Hysell from Bailey Run, and a two-year old child. Two sons by a former marriage live in the West. Funeral arrangements have not been completed but will probably take place at Chauncey, Six's former home.
