Looking for an obit for John A. "Jack" Leitner/Lightner who died August 18, 1878 "on the old river" in Sharkey County. He was a lumber cutter andmight have been killed somehow by sending the timber downstream. Hoping to find an obit. His estate was raised in Warren County as that is where he lived. There was a possiblity it wasn't an accident and he was murdered. He was 40 years old when he died.
He was cutting cypress trees In Camp at Auckland Plantation. Which I haven't been able to find the location of yet.
