I have not found any follow-up to this news story, but Harvey Rodgers‘ death certificate lists his cause of death as “Gun shot wound of chest accident while hunting.”
Harvey Rodgers — in the 1920 census of Cross Roads township, Wilson County: Jim Rogers, 60; wife Lanie, 50; children Latina, 15, Harold, 12, Louisa, 9, and Harvey, 8; and nieces Ema B., 20, and Mabel Sanders, 6.
J.W. Rogers, 25, married Annie H. Blake, 21, on 21 September 1893. L.J. Melton, a Presbyterian minister, performed the ceremony at the Baptist church in the presence of David Pyatt, H. Bynum, and S.H. Vick.
