Garbush, Bill (? - 28 MAR 1905)
Tuesday afternoon the chambermaids at the O?Neill House discovered that the room occupied by Bill Garbush could not be opened. On failing to arouse him, help was called and the door forced in. He was found dead in bed, lying on his back with his hands folded across his body, the bed clothes in order and his features apparently as if her were asleep. The remains were removed to J.B. Lowe?s undertaking rooms, where an inquest was held by Justice Dudley and the following jury summoned by Sheriff Dwyer: John Huntzicker, F.W. Draper, C.M. Bradford, George Brooks, Oscar Fricke. They found that he came to his death by natural causes to them unknown. Deceased had lately had considerable family trouble, his wife having secured a divorce and what little property he had, and he had acted in a more eccentric manner than usual since. This caused some suspicion of suicide, but there was no evidence nor indication of poison. His clothing contained two small flasks, one empty, the other containing diluted alcohol, a beverage to which he was somewhat addicted. Deceased was a well known character around Neillsville, Clark County. He formerly lived in the town of Grant, but for some years had lived west of the city in Pine Valley.
