Norris, wife of Wm: 

  “The Waterville Immigrant of June 8th says: The wife of Wm Norris committed suicide

 by shooting herself in the breast with a revolver at her home near Davenport

 stage road between Moses and Grand Coulees, about 8 o’clock last Tuesday morning. 

Her husband was in the chicken house near by at the time, and did not

 hear the report of the pistol. The weapon was a 32 caliber revolver and the

bullet ranged downward, producing immediate death.

 She leaves two small children and a third confinement was approaching.

 She had told one of her neighbors, Mrs. Davis, that she was tired of life

 and intended to commit suicide. Domestic trouble and jealousy seem to have

 been the prime causes of the act. She was about 28 years old.  

The scene of the tragedy is about 38 miles east of Waterville.” (6-20-1889 of Sprague Herald)
