P. W. Gillstrap

The Hartford Republican (Hartford, KY), February 22, 1907. 

Mr. P. W. Gillstrap Dies at Greenville.

A most shocking and unexpected death occurred on the street here Monday says a Greenville correspondent to the Muhlenburg Argus.  Mr. P.W. Gillstrap was walking from G.M. Dexter's store up the street when he fell death (sic) in front of (sic) G.E. Countzler saw him stagger and catch at the fencing of his store and sprang to his assistance, but before he could reach him he had fallen face forward on the street.  Dr. T.J. Slaton, Mr. Countzler and others immediately carried him into the drug store, but he had passed beyond all human aid.  He died of heart trouble.  Mr. Gillstrap was a quiet, industrious man about 60 years old and leaves a wife and six children.  He moved here from Ohio county two years ago.  He had been a consistent member of the Methodist church for many years.  His remains were taken for burial to his old home near Cromwell, Wednesday.  The widow and children have the sympathy of the entire community in their loss.
