Sympathy Saturday - Asa Coleman Chinn

You might remember Asa Chinn, if you have been reading my "Thriller Thursday" posts. Asa was the son of Addison Ball Chinn and Fannie Runyon. Addison was murdered in his own home in a home invasion in 1902. At that time, Asa was also shot in the face. Asa survived that shooting and died 50 years later, on July 9, 1952 at the age of 75. His death certificate states he died of apoplexy (stroke) and possibly a brain tumor.

From the Lexington Herald. Lexington, Kentucky, obituary, 10 July 1952:
