Obituary and Biographical Detials

From the Goldsboro (NC) Messenger, Thursday, 20 July 1882:

Mr. James H. Lydick, the bartender at Millers’ Club House, in Morehead City, was the victim of an accident, last Sunday night, which resulted in his death. It seems that during the night he fell from a landing at the top of a high flight of stairs, over the water, a distance of some forty feet, and in his fall struck a piece of projecting timber, which broke his ribs and forced them up in the lungs. He was found in that precarious condition some hours later. Medical aid was soon at hand, but nothing could be done for the unfortunate young man. His remains passed here Tuesday on the way to Lynchburg, Va., where he is well connected, and is a brother of Mrs. Engledove of that city.
