I believe "C. Collier" is Walter C. Collier, who died of an accidental gunshot wound on November 13th, 1902 in Hot Springs, AR. Here are my notes on Collier: http://arkbaseball.com/tiki-index.php?page=Walter+Collier


"Z. Partilla" appears to be Zack Patillo (this surname seems to have no definite spelling). He died in Hot Springs in 1908. Here are my brief notes on Patillo: http://arkbaseball.com/tiki-index.php?page=Zack+Patillo

Bill Mullins

William Bedford was killed in Atlantic City, NJ, not Louisville. He had resided in Cairo, IL. He had played 2B. The bolt which killed him also injured teammates Walter Gordon (ss) and Charles Follie/Follis (catcher) (sp? text not quite legible).

Brian McKenna

Brooks = Gus Brooks, Page Fence Giants centerfielder - died of heart failure on the field in 1890

Bedford = William Bedford, Cuban Ginats second baseman - hit by lightning in 1909

Bill Monroe - 1915

Bill Lindsay - Chicago American Giants, died 9/1/1914
