Edwin Carson

CARSON, EDWIN.-Shot, Dies After Amputation. Edwin, little 4-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John W. Carson, of Lakeview, was accidentally shot yesterday morning with a shotgun. Edwin and a little cousin 8 years of age were playing in a room where the shotgun was kept, and in some manner the gun was fired, the charge taking effect in the little fellows leg just above the knee. A doctor was called  and the child rushed to a hospital, where an operation was found necessary. The operation was performed, but death occurred at 6:30 in the evening. The funeral and interment will take place today at Newnan Springs, Ga.
