Coopersville Observer, Oct. 16, 1914
The body of William Walsh, a bachelor farmer living about two miles south of Berlin, was found on a haymow in his barn by a farm hand Tuesday morning with a bullet hole in his head. Walsh evidently left the house during the night while his mother and sister, with whom he lived, were asleep and went to the barn where he shot himself with a revolver. Walsh was about fifty years old and was a member of the board of directors of the Berlin State Bank. A coroner from Grand Haven was called to investigate the case. It is believed Walsh was suffering from temporary insanity.
