Killed by an Insane Man.
A telegram received at Marshalltown told of the murder of Harrison Weeks, a former resident of Green Mountain county, at Hayes Center, Neb. Herbert Robb, insane, wanted Weeks to settle an imaginary claim for farm land, and demanded money at the point of a shotgun. Weeks laughed at him, and Robb told him to say his prayers. With that remark he shot him, blowing off the top of his head. Robb was captured.
Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows he is buried in Hayes Center Cemetery, Hayes Center, NE, He was born December 6, 1843 and died January 13, 1908.
