"June 10, 2012 ONLINE EXCLUSIVE: Sept. 29, 1961 death by snake bite Bluefield Daily Telegraph EDITOR'S NOTE: The following story is from the Sept. 29, 1961, edition of the Bluefield Daily Telegraph. Rattlers Bite At Service Kills McDowell Woman 23-Year-Old Declined Any Treatment Divorcee handled snake first time Sunday at Jolo By BURL OSBORNE IAEGER, W.Va. (AP) — An attractive 23-year-old divorcee died Thursday night, four days after she was bitten by a rattlesnake during a church service near this McDowell County community. The victim was Columbia Gay Chafins Hagerman, who resided at Paynesville near the West Virginia-Virginia line about 15 miles south of Iaeger. Mrs. Hagerman was bitten Sunday night at the Church In Jesus at the nearby town of Jolo. She was bitten by a yellow timber rattler on the right hand. She died at the home of her step-father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Elkins, without receiving any medical attention. "In The Name Of Jesus" She couldn't walk," Mrs. Elkins said, but "she would say ‘in the name of Jesus' and get up and walk through the house. "We stayed in steady prayer since it happened and she prayed with us. "We feel when He don't heal us. He has a better purpose ... I would have got a doctor, but I know God is God. "Mrs. Elkins, 42, whose husband is lay-leader of the church, said he asked her daughter if she wanted a doctor but she said "she did not want one. "Elkins, 35, said his step-daughter became ill about three minutes after she was bitten. The church has a congregation of 50 to 100 persons and meet three times weekly. Parents Bitten Several Times Mrs. Elkins said she has been bitten seven times by copperheads and rattlesnakes, but has never had a doctor. Her husband said he had received 10 bites with out medical attention. "I have not used one (a doctor) in 20 years," she added. A 29-year-old son, Dewey Chafin, was bitten three weeks ago, they said, but recovered. Sunday night was the first time Mrs. Hagerman, mother of a nine-year-old daughter, had handled the snakes. The Elkins live In a two-story unpainted block building. The living room was lighted by a lamp with a ceramic snake as a base. A plastic crucifix hung on the wall. Mrs. Elkins said she has been cured by faith of tuberculosis and cancer. First In 5 Years the death of Mrs. Hagerman was the first In the Jolo congregation, which was organized five years ago. "I've been in this faith 21 years," Mrs. Elkins said. "We get several persecutions, but we don't do it for show," she added. "We try to stay within the Bible. "They call us names, but we don't pay that any mind. When we pass, they call us ‘snakes' or ‘snake-eaters'." Elkins said the handling of snakes can take place at any time during a service. "It's done under the anointing power of God," Elkins said. Not On Urge As a person moves, he continued, "he moves on his own not on an urge." The snakes are kept in boxes inside the church. Elkins said funeral services for Mrs. Hagerman will be conducted at the church. State Trooper J. M. Perry and McDowell County Criminal Investigator Howard Hutchison investigated the death, but took no action. Snake handling Is legal in West Virginia. McDowell County Constables Buck Jones and Clarence Shelton also aided in the investigation. The body was taken to Fanning Funeral Home in Iaeger, where further funeral details will be announced later.
