Fitchburg Sentinel, 4 May 1885
Fatal Accident.

W. Clifton Eames, only son of Walter A. Eames, formerly of this city, while out gunning early May morning at Pomona, Fla., accidentally shot himself and was dead when found.

He was a young man of marked ability and sterling integrity of character, and won many friends not only here but where ever he changed to be. During the past year, while living with an uncle, he has been engaged in planting an orange grove for his father. In this work, as in all other, he has shown an executive ability and judgement due to riper years.
