T.C. Watson Injured in Fight, 1919

“Cutting Affair at West Riverside” from the Feb. 6, 1919, issue of The Watauga Democrat

On Saturday evening last at West Riverside, N.C., an altercation occurred between Mr. T.C. Watson and a near relative, Mr. Com Watson, over a small bunch of cross ties, resulting in the former being most seriously wounded by a knife in the hands of his kinsman. The wounded man was hurried to his home at Virgil, and Dr. Bingham was summoned at once. He found the patient in a rather serious condition, with a knife cut 5 ½ inches long in the abdomen and a severe stab in the shoulder. The doctor says his condition is improving and without complications thinks he will soon recover.
