While searching through FindAGrave, I found a memorial (#28962256) for Wildy Zumwalt. He was a son of Thomas Zumwalt and Pauline Paul. Wildy was listed as being buried in Angus Cemetery in Alto, Lincoln County, New Mexico. His death date was 13 December 1914. I knew Wildy was born about 1896, so what caused his life to be cut short? Included on Wildy's memorial was an image of a newspaper article. Neither the name of the newspaper, nor date of the article was given. I'll have to try and locate that information. Nonetheless, here is a transcription of the article:
"Twenty-third Hunting Accident
Santa Fe, Dec 12 -- The twenty-third serious gunning accident in New Mexico this fall, resulted in the death of Wildy Zumwalt in the Capitan mountains, the fatal bullet being fired accidentally by Harry Little. The two young men while out gunning separated and coming around a little knoll Little saw what he supposed to be game moving among the pinyon brush. He discharged his gun and Zumwalt fell dead."
I've submitted a tombstone photo request.
