There have been a few suicides in one line of my tree and I would like to get more info if at all possible. I have tried to email the libraries in the areas and historical societies, but they are either not getting the emails or ignoring them. So any help would be appreciated.
1. Charles Edward Johnston
B: 7 March 1884
D: 1 May 1951
Parents: Jesse Johnston and Cyrena Straight
*Death cert says hung himself on a farm near Laurel Point, Monongalia, WV ~ was this his farm, and why did he hang himself at the age of 67
2. Calvin B Johnston
B: 15 March 1880
D: 20 Feb 1952
Parents: Amon Price Johnston and Nancy Haines
* Death cert says he shot himself in the stomach with a 12 guage shotgun, Fairview, WV Rt#3.
There was also a 3rd Johnston who killed himself on the front porch of the funeral home in IN because he was distraught over his sisters death. I have newspaper articles on that suicide but can't seem to get any on the others.
