MRS. KNEEDLER DEAD.

Former Resident of Caledonia Found Dead in Well at Her Missouri Home
Suppose to be a Case of Suicide

Mrs. Louis KNEEDLER of Cedar Springs co., Mo., was found dead in the bottom of a well Tuesday morning. Word has reached the county. The supposition is that the case is one of suicide, as Mrs.Kneedler had once been demented on account of ill health while living in this co. Mr. and Mrs. KNEEDLER moved from the Caledonia vicinity to Missouri about three years ago, after living in this county since the early days. She was a sister of George, John, Andrew and Henry WALTER. According to the report Mrs. KNEEDLER left her bed between 2 and 5:00 o'clock in the morning. When she was missed a search was started, and after searching for several hours it was decided to drag the well, with the result that her life-less body was found at the bottom.
