Bucky Arthur, age 50, was found dead in bed January 2 at the William Sharp Hospital in Weston. The son of R. W. "Spark" & Bessie Headley Arthur of Little Creek, he had spent his adult life working in the oil field. The autopsy said he died of "hardening of the arteries". Burial was in the Cooper cemetery.

Along about the next night she beat up the warriors' descendant (& his chariot) and got to spend some quality time in Doddridge County.
