NOTE: The item below, which appeared to include all known suicides during 1879, was abbreviated from the original to show only the suicides in Lawrence County, Indiana.


July 4–Body of John Walcup, lately insane, found hanging to a tree near Bedford, Ind., suspended by a rope of bark; had evidently been hanging nearly a week.

September 1–Solon Bowman, aged 22, Bedford, Ind., shoots himself because some young men had made sport of him.
