Lunt, David S.
David S. Lunt – Pueblo Colorado Weekly Chieftain – April 12, 1877 – Death of D. Tom Smith's Victim – We have to announce, says the Black Hills Pioneer, the death of Mr. David S. Lunt, a native of the state of Maine and for many years a resident of California and Nevada. He was one of the first settlers of the Hills, and enjoyed the confidence all who knew him, and had endeared himself to a large circle of friends. It will be remembered that on the 14th of last January the quiet of our city was disturbed by the brawlings of a man named D. T. Smith, who behaved in a very reckless manner. On the night in question he entered the saloon of Al. Chapman, drawing his revolver and threatening to shoot any man that moved. He approached a party among whom was the deceased, and leveling his revolver continued his threats. At that instant Mr. Con Stapleton, the marshal grappled with and secured him, in the struggle Smith fired his pistol, Stapleton escaping unhurt, and the ball going over his head as he stooped and lodging in the forehead of Mr. Lunt. Mr. Lunt rallied from the effects of the wound, and has since been able to be about, attending to his usual pursuits until Tuesday last, when he complained of extreme suffering in his head and sank rapidly until Thursday morning, when he died at 11:15 o'clock.
