|My great-grandfather Edward D. Funk|
On October 21, 1924, while Edward Funk was counting up the money at the end of the day, Lindsey Traylor, aged 20, entered the filling station to rob my great-grandfather. He was shot three times killing him at age 53. Lindsey Traylor's accomplice was 28 year old Jason Adkins. Both men were tried and found guilty, and were put to death in 1925.
