Dagget, Mrs. Anthony Died

Mrs. Anthony Dagget, died at Marion, Ind., last Saturday from eating roasted coffee.   She commenced about two years ago to eat a few grains every time she went to the kitchen cabinet in which the coffee was kept. The habit grew on her until she was eating a cupful of beans every day. She stated, before she died, that she knew the coffee was killing her, but her appetite was so revenous that she could not resist it. She died in great agony.

Daniel, H. T. REV. H. T. Daniel, for many years pastor of the Baptist Church at Richmond and later of Paris, and who was well known in Baptist circles of this county, died last week in Shelby county, aged forty years.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 30, 1891.

 

THE State Baptist Association last week at Williamsburg, was an important meeting. It was held at that point to give au impetus to the school at the place. Rev. H. T. Daniel, who was well known in this county, was solicitor for the place, and dying a short time ago left a legacy of $ 500 to it, the Association resolved to increase it to $ 5,000 and name it for him; of this sum three thousand dollars was raised. The most important movement was the laying of plans to celebrate the centennial of missions. One hundred years ago next May, Carey, an English cobbler and a Baptist, started the first foreign missionary movement. The centennial move will take shape of double donation by the Baptists during the present year to these objects. The College at Williamsburg is rapidly approaching a sure foundation. Some time ago we noticed the fact that Dr. Gatliff had given $ 10,000, J. D. Rockafeller, $ 5,000, and the Baptists of the State, $ 5,000. It is now proposed if the denomination in the State will raise $ 15,000 Mesers. Rockafeller and Gatliff will each add $ 10,000, a considerable amount of this was raised during the Association.

Daniels, Mrs. Charles Bitter feud opens

Between Kentucky and West Virginia families and bloody battle is expected

Williamson, W.Va., – Mrs. Chas. Daniels and her 16-year-old daughter were shot to death near Devon, Mingo county, by officers and their posse of Pike county, Kentucky. The shooting of Mrs. Daniels and her daughter grew out of a family feud, which has been brewing for some weeks between the Christians and Daniels on the border of Kentucky and West Virginia. The Christians lived in Mingo county, West Virginia, and the Daniels in Pike county, Kentucky. About three weeks ago George Christian ventured to the Kentucky side and was slain by Jim Daniels, and it is claimed that the murder was unprovoked and most brutal. Christian and Daniels were brothers-in-law, and had formerly been allies, having each served a term in the West Virginia penitentiary upon the charge of murder and shooting to kill. They fell out over a trivial matter and became deadly enemies. After the killing of Christian by Daniels the two families and their friends became involved, and for some few days both factions have gone about heavily armed. The Christians secured warrants for Jim Daniels and his brother Charles, who was also said to be implicated in the murder of George Christian, and led by a posse of 16 under the command of Constable Ferrell, of Pike county, went to the home of the Daniels for the purpose of effecting their arrest. The two Daniels boys were at the home of their father, Charles Daniels, near Devon, and it is said that when the officers approached within a few feet of the house Mrs. Daniels and her daughter threw open the front door and opened fire with Winchester rifles, one of the posse receiving a bullet in the arm and Mose Christian, father of the murdered Christian boy, had his hat shot from his head. The two Daniels boys and their father opened fire from behind the house. Mrs. Daniels was shot down in the doorway, but the 16-year-old daughter stood over her prostrate form and fired upon the posse until she dropped dead across her mother, pierced by three bullets. The officers closed in but by forfeiting their lives, the mother and daughter had so effectually covered the retreat of father and brother that they made their escape. There are now some 30 armed Christians and their friends on the West Virginia side, and almost a like number of the followers of the Daniels faction on the Kentucky side. Both factions are armed with Winchesters, and officers say they are unable to control the situation, and if either of these factions crosses the line and clash, either Gov. Glasscock, of West Virginia, or Gov. Willson, of Kentucky, will be appealed to.

Davidson, Alex Frank Polly, one of the Eversole faction in the late Perry county trouble and who was released from jail under bond of several thousand dollars, was on his way to attend Circuit Court here and stopped at a groggery on the head waters of Cane Creek, in Breathitt county, owned by Alex Davidson, a white man and Alex Wilson, a negro. The trouble arose over a woman present with whom it is said both Davidson and Wilson were sustaining illicit relations. In the row which ensued Polly was badly beaten over the head by Davidson and the later was shot through the body, the wound being fatal in a few minutes. Polly was arrested and landed in jail at Jackson, as was the negro Wilson, who, it is claimed by Polly’s friends fired the fatal shot, being actuated by jealousy on account of the mutual relations to the woman in question.

Toomey was removed to his home, while Green remained in charge of the constable. A few days later several of the Athens crowd were in Lexington some of them bent on having Greene placed in jail and others opposed to it. Marshal Traynor became involved in a row with Lew Sharp, Ike Davidson, Pat Toomey and some other person, over the matter.   Traynor knocked Sharp down and cut him very badly in the face and near the hand. The others ran up and one of them struck Traynor who had Sharp down.   The latter arose with a big pistol in each hand, and while he covered a part of his foes with one, with the other he shot Issac Davidson, inflicting a wound from which he died in a few moments. Traynor surrendered and is out on bond. Davidson was a prominent distiller of Athens. Sharp is badly hurt but may get well. He was a Confederate soldier, a member of Cluke’s regiment and has numerous comrades in this county.

Garrett Davis and Thomas F. Marshall.

By Hon. James Flanagan

One of the most brilliant political races ever made in Kentucky was that between Garrett Davis and Thomas F. Marshall for a seat in Congress from the famous Ashland district. Mr. Davis was born in 1801, Mr. Marshall in 1800. The contest occurred in the year 1845; which was the year following the defeat of Mr. Clay by Mr. Polk for President. The Whig party survived the defeat of their great leader, who continued to serve his country as a Senator in Congress, until death freed his gallant spirit. Mr. Davis ran as the Whig candidate and Mr. Marshall as an Independent candidate. Mr. Davis had served three consecutive terms, as a Representative in Congress and was running for the fourth term. Mr. Marshall had represented the district one term in Congress. Both champions were in their prime, thorough masters of debate and accurately posted upon the political issues of the day. The meetings between them on the rostrum were marked with courtesy and fairness: neither transcended the proper limits of debate, for each of them possessed superb courage and recognized that important fact. These debates were regarded by competent judges as the most intellectual and spirited that had ever occurred in Kentucky up to that time, save the memorable debates between Mr. Clay and Mr. Pope in 1816. Mr. Clay winning the contest by a meager majority. It is not in the purview of this sketch to comment upon the now dead issues involved in those contests. Time has relegated them to oblivion and there let them rest. It is only the purpose of the writer to call more particularly the attention of those persons who have since come upon the stage of action to the fact that Kentucky had intellectual giants in those days, and none were more so than the distinguished men of whom this article treats. They have left their imperishable impress for ability and statesmanship upon the era in which they were political gladiators and antagonists.

The friends of each were enthusiastic and large crowds attended the meetings where they addressed the people. It would be superfluous to write in detail of the great oratorical powers of Mr. Marshall. No man of his day, save Mr. Clay, attracted greater crowds to hear him speak. He lacked Mr. Clay’s Greek fire, voice, manner and personal magnetism, but in wit he excelled the great Commoner though in no other attribute. Mr. Clay’s voice and eye gave him a magical power and as was said of actor Kemble. “There was a melody in every tone that would charm the towering eagle in her flight and tame a hungry lion” and it can be truthfully said of him that all the gods were present at his christening. Mr. Marshall was not only a rhetorician but a logician as well. His wit and jest was infinite and his fancy was so abundant   “That he scattered his gems almost as lavishly as nature scatters her garden seeds,” but with all of his gifts there was something lacking in his makeup that at times caused him to appear erratic. Tread lightly upon his ashes ye men of genius for he was your brother.

But to return, Mr. Davis won the race by a handsome majority, his own county (Bourbon) giving him double her usual Whig majority. Mr. Davis after serving his fourth term in Congress, voluntarily retired, temporarily, from political life to give attention to his private and professional business. At this time his law practice became extensive and lucrative. He was elected to represent Bourbon county in the Constitutional Convention which met in 1849. The reported debates attest the fact that he displayed marked intellectuality in the proceedings of that convention and was undoubtedly the peer of any member of that memorable body. It is unnecessary to refer to the questions discussed in that Convention as this work which seemed to be intended to last for all time, has been superceded by that unique organism the product of the Convention of 1890. Mr. Davis after a lapse of twelve years was elected in 1861 to succeed John C. Breckenridge in the United States Senate and was   reelected as his own successor in 1870. He served nearly twelve years in the Senate which with his eight years in the House, made in all nearly twenty years of arduous and faithful service in Congress. His service in the House demonstrated great aptitude and ability. As Chairman of the Committee on Territories, when Iowa was admitted into the Union, he made a report that was favorable to the admission of the new State, that showed his statesmanship and grasp of such questions. Congress adopted his report and Iowa was given statehood. Iowa honored Mr. Davis by naming one of her first counties “Davis.” Mr. Davis entered the Senate when the civil war had begun between the adhering and seceding States, by which bloody arbitrament the whole country was convulsed. His service in the Senate did not close until peace was declared and the resultant restored Union, which it is said to be hoped may endure forever. Mr. Davis’ career in the Senate was during the most trying period of the country’s existence and the role he filled was exacting and difficult, but he was always equal to the emergencies that arose from time to time. His long public life was never marred by his failure to discharge his duty and to do it with fidelity to the State, which had so highly honored him. Once upon a time a philosopher, who was seen digging in the corner of a fence and on being interrogated as to what he was doing answered that he was trying to find a man. Now if Mr. Davis had been present he would have been spared the search. His manly apology to his colleague, Mr. Powell on the floor of the Senate chamber, should alone entitle his memory to be honored by his native State, in placing his statue in Memorial Hall of the Capital at Washington. His chief characteristics were honesty truth and courage. He was a thorough lawyer and advocate as well as a profound statesman. He represented the State of Kentucky in the Supreme Court of the United States, in the celebrated case between Kentucky and Missouri involving the ownership of Island 10 in the Mississippi river. Kentucky won the case. Mr. Davis’ argument was pronounced by a member of the court to have been the ablest made before that court during his service of twelve years as a justice thereof. His brief in that case is a marvel of research and industry and a monument to his acumen as a jurist. He was a forcible eloquent speaker and possessed rare talents and attainments as was said of him by one of his eulogists, Mr. Sumner, “Amid the perturbations of the times, he trod his way with independent step and won even from opponents the palm of character.”

He died at his home in Paris, Kentucky, on the 22nd of September, 1872.

He was elected treasurer the night of the institution of the lodge, Nov. 29, 1845, and has been treasurer ever since with the exception of two years, when he retired to pass through the other chairs. Was then re-elected and was just finishing his fifty-fifth year as continuous treasurer. Until about one year ago, when a sickness prevented, Mr. Davis had not missed twelve nights since the lodge was instituted, and that was either to attend his church or was attending the session of the Grand Lodge. He was an Oddfellow whose life was an example for members of the order to emulate, for he practiced the principles of Oddfellowship in his every day life.

Resolved, That we extend our heartfelt and warmest sympathies to the widow and family of the Hon. Jefferson Davis in their great bereavement. That we look with pride upon the public career of Mr. Davis, who as Senator of the United States, or as Secretary of War, or as President of the Confederate States, as a soldier in the field and camp presents to the world a life full of honor and glory undimmed by a single stain. His private life so pure and lovely combined with his heroic public record stamp him as the grandest character of the age, and time when narrow prejudice and feelings shall have passed away will place him among the most illustrious characters of the world.

2nd, That as the Confederate soldiers fighting for the principles he loved so well, we still love the hero and adhere to the principles of civil and religious liberty for which he sacrificed all earthly ambition.

The remains of Jefferson Davis were brought from their home in Mississippi and interred Thursday in the Richmond, Va. cemetery. Twenty-five thousand people viewed the bier as it lay in state, and it is said that seventy-five thousand were in the city. More Confederate troops were in line than ever before at one time since the war. Everywhere the emblems of mourning showed how much the great leader was loved by his people and how dear is his memory yet. Congressman Lisle was present and sent the following telegram to Capt. D. J. Pendleton, which well illustrates the feeling that prevailed: “Richmond has been retaken: the old Chieftain is again in command.”

Petrified

Was The Corpse Which Was Stolen From A Kentucky Grave

Campton, Ky.,June 5

News was received here that grave robbers had opened the grave of Reese Davis, of Morgan county, and stolen his body. Davis died about ten years ago and was buried in the family cemetery, and about five years ago the grave was opened for some purpose and the body was found to be petrified. A few days ago the Odd Fellows of that county, of which order Davis was a member, were decorating the graves of their deceased members, and upon reaching the grave of Davis they were talking about his body being petrified. Some of the members desiring to see the body, the grave was opened in the presence of a large assemblage of people, when it was discovered that the body was gone. There is no clew as to the perpetrators of the robbery.

Davis, William R. Murdered For His Money

A dispatch from Lexington says news has reached there of the murder of William R. Davis, son of the late William R. Davis, of Bryan Station, and nephew of Thomas F. Muir, of Muir’s Station. About a year ago young Davis set out from Lexington to make his fortune in the West.   He carried with him as capital $1,000 given him by his uncle. Davis first located near Independence, Mo., and there formed the acquaintance of James Salyer, of Liberty, Mo. The two went into Oklahoma, and now comes the sad news that the young man’s body was found in Oklahoma Gulch. He had been murdered by Salyer.

Statue Over Winnie Davis Grave

Richmond, Va., March 10

The design for the statue to be erected over the grave of Miss Winnie Davis has been chosen and approved by Mrs. Davis. The design, which is by Zolvey, of New York, is the figure of a sitting angel.   It is to be of Italian marble and will be erected by the Daughters of the Confederacy.

The Winchester Democrat   Tue., March 14, 1899

 

Women of the South.

Will Honor Winnie Davis by Erecting a Monument to Her Memory at Richmond, Va.

Without solicitation of any kind, and solely through voluntary contributions from those she loved, the memory of Winnie Davis, “ Daughter of the Confederacy,” will be honored by the erection of a handsome monument over her grave in Hollywood. It will be the first tribute of the kind ever paid to a southern woman by the women of the south.

The movement was started by the Richmond Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy. At first it seemed a difficult undertaking. A great monument to Jefferson Davis was already awaiting the raising of funds for its construction, while a proposed monument to the women of the south had been temporarily abandoned. But the women sent out a circular to confederate organizations, suggesting that they contribute as they saw fit to this work of love and contributions soon came pouring in.

The Winnie Davis monument committee soon had $1,000 in hand and designs for a monument to cost that amount were asked for. Many were submitted, but the New York camp of Confederate Veterans desired particularly a design by Zolney, a New York sculptor. This was an angel in Italian marble, the price of which was $3,000. The sculptor’s friendship for the Davis family caused him to reduce the amount to $1,650, which included the $1,000 raised by the women and $650 given by the New York veterans.

Zolney’s design was accepted as soon as Mrs. Davis expressed her wish for it. The sculptor is now at work on a bronze statue of Jefferson Davis to be placed at his grave in Hollywood, and is also designing the Winnie Davis memorial tablet of bronze, to be placed in St. Paul’s Episcopal church, in which Mr. Davis received the news of the virtual fall of Richmond.

It is the purpose to unveil the monuments and memorial at the annual meeting of the Daughter’s of the Confederacy next fall. The design for the Winnie Davis monument is a seated angel. It will be carved in Italian marble and mounted on a hammered granite pedestal with a coping in front. The statue measures a little more than seven feet. The granite pedestal is 2 ½ feet high, 3 ½ feet wide and 2 ½ feet deep. The coping is six feet long, two feet wide and fifteen inches high.—Richmond (Va.) Letter.

Davis, Wm. Heirs of dead prisoner

Who picked up live electric wire ask heavy damages

Frankfort, Ky., – Because Wm. Davis, a convict sent to the penitentiary here from Louisville, picked up a live wire belonging to the Capital Gas and Electric Co. and was killed, his estate may get $25,000 as the suit against the company for that sum is scheduled to begin here April 27. Davis was sent from Louisville to the penitentiary on the charge of car breaking and had been in the penitentiary but a short time when he picked up the wire in front of the prison one day and was killed. The case was to be heard this week, but owing to the most important witnesses being absent, the trial had to be postponed until April 27, and an order was entered to have certain witnesses brought here at that time. The witnesses are J.J. White, of Campbell county; Uell Button, of Oldham county; Capt. Lynn, of Lincoln county; Chas. C. Averdick, of Kenton county, and John Hunter of Ohio county.

Day, Bob F. The Above is a spirited likeness of the Democratic standard bearer in the present Congressional campaign. He was born in Morgan County, December 6th, 1836. His father Arch Day, was a farmer and stock raiser all his life.   His paternal grandfather came from Scotland and his maternal grandsire from England. His mother was a daughter of John Cox, a native of North Carolina. The following points from his life are taken from a biographical sketch which was published in the Mt. Sterling Sentinel-Democrat: “Judge B. F. Day received a good common school education, and in October 1862, though but a boy enlisted in the Confederate Army, Co. B. Tenth Kentucky Calvary, and was taken prisoner at Cynthiana, Ky. June 1864 and taken to Indianapolis, where he remained until the close of the war. He then went to Morgan County, Ky., where he taught school and also operated a store for two years.

In 1869 he moved to Menifee County, Ky., and engaged in merchandising until 1872; he was elected County Judge, serving until 1878. In 1879 he represented Menifee, Powell, Montgomery and Wolfe counties in the Legislature in which body he was Chairman of the Committee on General Statutes, was a member of the Revenue and Taxation Committee, and also that on Circuit Courts.

In December 1882 he located in Mt. Sterling, where he has since been actively engaged in the practice of his profession, having been admitted to the bar in June 1871.

Judge Day first married September 2, 1860, to Mary A. Greenwade, of Bath County, a daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Kring) Greenwade, who bore him three children, Ellis, Edna and Douglass. He next married, June 23 1883, Miss Victoria S. Cassidy, of Scott County, Va., daughter of Thomas and Lucinda (Richmond) Cassidy. Mrs. Day is a member of the M. E. Church South while her husband is a member of the Christian church. He is also a member of the I. O. O. F., a Royal Arch Mason, Knight Templar, and a Democrat with a record as clear as the noonday sun.

Judge Day is a man of intelligence-a man of honor. His private life cannot be assailed by the opposite party and his political career has been one of answering devotion to the Democratic party. He was one of the best lawyers in Eastern Kentucky and has the full confidence of the Courts, the bar, the litigants and the populace, who, knowing his professional as well as his personal integrity, are satisfied that whatever he does is prompted by a sense of duty to his client and a desire that all men shall have justice.”

Died—“Uncle” Bob Day, a very prominent citizen of Morgan county, died Tuesday evening. “Uncle” Bob was the oldest Mason in the county, and the only Royal Arch Mason in the county. He has been in public life for twenty years; first a Magistrate for four years, then County Attorney for four years, then County Judge for two terms, making eight years—then County Superintendent of Public Schools for four years. He was seventy-four years old, and an uncle of J. Taylor Day, of Hazel Green, and Floyd Day, of this city. He was buried with Masonic honors.

Carl Day, representative from the Breathitt district in the late legislature, died of inflamatory rheumatism at Lexington Tuesday. For several years Mr. Day was located in this city. He leaves a brother, Walter Day, and two sisters, Mrs. Williams and Miss Mary Day. He was a nephew of Messrs. Floyd and J. C. M. Day, of this city. The remains passed through here yesterday morning on the L. & E. train. The burial was in the family graveyard at Frozen, in Breathitt county.

Receiver

Appointed for N. B. Day & Co.—Assets Nearly Double Liabilities.

The estate of the firm of N. B. Day & C., a company of W. B. Day and the late Carl Day, of Breathitt county, consisting of timberlands, saw mills, stores and live stock, located at different points in Eastern Kentucky, and valued at $90,000 has been placed in the hands of a receiver.

Mr. Day left his home at Frozen August 22, telling his wife that he was going to New York to collect a claim. A few days later Mrs. Day received a letter from him bearing the New York postmark and stating that he did not expect ever to return.

The business was carried on under the firm name of N. B. Day & Co., the senior member, N. B. Day, who died sometime ago, being the father of Walter. The late Carl Day, brother of Walter, was also a partner.

Floyd Day, of this city, uncle of Walter and the principal creditor, accompanied by his attorney, Judge W. M. Beckner, went to Breathitt county last week to investigate his nephew’s business affairs. A careful computation of the assets and liabilities showed that while the former would reasonably foot up $90,000 the latter does not so far exceed $50,000. Application was made before Judge Riddell at Irvine for a receiver and C. M. Clark, a competent businessman who has long been connected with the Day Interests in Eastern Kentucky, was appointed.

It is believed that Walter imagined his affairs to be in much worse condition than they really were and decided rather than face his creditors under the circumstances, to leave home and let matters take the course they have taken to a conclusion. He is expected soon to return.

Walter R. Day married Miss Mattie Mize daughter of Mrs. Edith Mize of this city. He was state treasurer under the brief administration of Gov. Taylor and has always been considered an honorable gentleman.

Albert Barnes and Geo. Stevens were tried before Judge Byrnes, of Frenchburg, and held in $10,000 bond for killing Will Barnes and Kelley Day, at chambers Station in Menifee county, an account of which we gave last week.

The Democrat, Wednesday, April 23, 1890

 

The grand jury of the Menifee Circuit Court returned indictments for murder against Albert Barnes and George Stephens for killing William Barnes and Kelley Day on April 7th at Chambers Station. Their cases were continued until the next term, and Judge Cooper granted them bail in the sum of $12,000 each, which they gave and were released.

A DISPATCH from Mt. Sterling dated Sunday says: “Albert Barnes, who operated a store at Bowen, Powell county, was assassinated in this county last night while riding horseback to his home near there. Barnes body was fairly riddled with rifle balls. Several years ago Barnes, while waiting for the train from this city became involved in a difficulty with a man named Stevens. During the progress of the affair several shots were fired, some of them going through a coach of the train. One of the bullets struck a young man named Kelley Day, killing him.   Barnes was accused of firing the fatal shot but was recently acquitted of the charge in the Menifee county Circuit Court. The assassins have not been located. It is supposed the killing is in some way connected with the tragic death of young Day.   Barnes is a brother of T. K. Barnes, of this city and was not an unpopular man. If the Day tragedy is not connected with the assassination, no cause of the killing can be given.

Day, W. T. W. T. Day, a brother of Judge B. F. Day, late Democratic candidate for Congress from this district, committed suicide at Mt. Sterling Tuesday morning by taking morphine. He was a United States Marshall under the Cleveland administration, and was known as one of the coolest and bravest men in the service. At one time he was selected, with two others, to arrest Alf Little, the famous Breathitt county desperado. He found Little surrounded by his friends and seized him on the streets of Jackson, and after a desperate resistance he was secured; keeping the crowd back with drawn revolvers, the prisoner was brought away in safety.

In the fall of 1885, he was guarding a desperate counterfeiter in Covington. His pistol was lying carelessly on the table within easy reach of both him and his prisoner. Suddenly the latter drew from his pocket a handful of tobacco dust and threw it full in Day’s face, at the same time snatching the pistol. Though   rendered perfectly blind by the tobacco, he managed to seize the pistol with one hand and his prisoner with the other, and finally succeeded in forcing him into a corner, and twisted the pistol until the muzzle touched his opponent’s killing him at once. Day was tried and acquitted. During the last few years of his life he had drank much, which, with other trouble, caused the rash act.

Mrs. Deakins – Wife of the Deputy Sheriff Dies From the Shock Produced by Her Husband’s Tragic Death.

Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 5 – This city is in a fever of excitement at midnight over rumors that an attempt would be made before morning to lynch the men confined in jail, charged with being in the conspiracy which led to the street tragedy early Tuesday morning. The wife of the late Deputy Sheriff Deakins died Thursday afternoon from the shock produced by her husband’s death, and this has added to the already intense feelings among the friends of Deakins. When the news of Mrs. Deakins demise reached the town friends of the men confined in jail expressed the greatest fears for the safety of the prisoners, and soon began to discuss means of repelling the mob should one come.

About a dozen leading citizens, including several politicians, called on Gov. Bradley about nine o’clock and laid the situation before him, asking that a detail of the McCreary guards be ordered out to assist the jail guards, who have been on duty the past two nights. Adding to the excitement and anxiety of the evening, the desultory firing of revolvers by unknown parties in remote parts of the city were also heard.

Gov. Bradley himself remained at the executive office till after midnight.

It proved fatal

In our last issue we mentioned the shooting of Florence Dean or Childs by Harry Hampton Sunday night. The wounded woman lingered until Monday night when she died. Hampton who was placed in jail when the shooting first took place says the shooting was accidental and the girl also told some parties the same; to others she said it was done purposely. The matter will be fully investigated. Hampton is married but had separated from his wife and was preparing to marry the Dean girl as soon as he could get a divorce. The funeral of the dead woman was one of the largest ever held in the city.

Wednesday was occupied by the trial of the negro, Harry Hampton, for murder. About two weeks ago he shot and killed Florence Chiles or Dean. No one was present except the prisoner and the woman. He claims that it was done accidentally, before she died, the woman told some persons that it was an accident and others that it was not. Other circumstances caused the jury to believe that it was not wholly an accident and they gave him ten years for manslaughter.

Deatherage, Mrs. Achilles The death of Mrs. Achilles Deatherage, on Friday, was the result of poison drunk in coffee five years ago. A negro boy who possessed more native meanness than any one of his years the country ever produced, put rough-on-rats in the coffee with the deliberate intention of murdering the entire family. The sickness produced was alarming, but did not terminate fatally at the time. But a year ago, Miss Hendricks, a white girl poisoned at the same time died. Now follows another victim.

About twelve days after the poisoning of Mrs. Deatherage, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy, who is now in good health.

The murderous boy was sent   to the penitentiary, and his time has about expired. He should make himself extremely scarce on Muddy creek.—Richmond Climax

Deatly Family An Unfortunate Family.

A special from Owingsville says: “Few persons have been so unfortunate as the Deatly family of this county. In April, 1894, L. P. Deatly, with his three sons, Lee, William and George, came from his home, in the northern part of this county, to Owingsville, to attend Circuit Court. During the day, William Deatly stabbed Mark Cline, a neighbor boy, to death in a livery stable at this place. He was arrested and his examining trial held, and in default of bail was sent to jail. “In a few days L. P. Deatly, the father, together with Lee and George, were arrested, charged with conspiracy to murder Mark Cline. At the October term of Circuit Court, the men were placed on trial, and they were finally convicted. “William was sent to the penitentiary for life, and died a raving maniac in the penitentiary at Eddyville. L.P., the father, after being confined at Frankfort for some time, was removed to the asylum at Lexington, and died only a few months since.   A telegram has just been received here from the authorities at the Frankfort penitentiary, stating that George Deatly is hopelessly insane and cannot long survive.”

Deatly, William William Deatly, sentenced to a life term in the penitentiary by the late session of the Bath Circuit Court, has been sent to the Asylum at Lexington for treatment for insanity. Judgement of court is not set aside by this act, but he will be returned to prison when his mind is sufficiently improved.

Deaton, Gardner A Deplorable Incident.

Near the mouth of Long’s Creek, in this county, last Saturday-evening Alfred Riley shot and killed Gardner Deaton. Harrison McDaniel had his skull fractured with a rock and J. D. Burton was slightly wounded in several places with rocks and other weapons. Several persons were engaged in a general fight with the above results. Riley was arrested and placed in jail here Saturday night. He waived examination Monday and Judge Hargis admitted him to bail in the sum of $3,000. County Attorney, W. H. Blanton, agreeing to the amount of the bond. The only cause of the trouble was too much whisky, as all the parties engaged were either relatives or bosom friends before the trouble. The occurrence has no connection whatever with any feud or previous trouble that may have existed in our county, though the daily press had tried to make it so appear. No further trouble is apprehended.-Jackson Hustler.

Deering, S. S. The recent cold weather has caused many of the oldest inhabitants to put on their studying caps and conjure up recollections of the previous hard winters. Some interesting data of this sort are furnished by the Harrodsburg Sayings, which says:

“The winter of 1779 and 1780, known as the hard winter began the middle of November and continued until the middle of February, without a single day being warm enough for the snow to melt in the least. Many cattle froze to death, and numbers of buffaloes, bears and deer, wolves, beavers and otter also perished from the severity of the weather. Wild animals, almost famished, were known to come up to the cabins with the tame cattle in search of food. The scarcity of food was so great that it is said a single jonny cake would be divided into a dozen parts, each recipient making his part serve for two meals. Quantities of wild turkeys were caught in pens during this early part of winter and stored away, and on these and buffalo meat they had to depend for food before spring opened. Early in the spring some of the men from Harrodsburg went to the Falls of the Ohio, now Louisville where they paid $60, continental money for a bushel of corn. The coldest day was in January and dominated cold Friday. It was so intensely cold that water thrown up into the air would fall in solid ice to the ground. Alexander Robertson, his wife and three little daughters were among a company of emigrants from Virginia in the year 1779. Robertson, who was the first Sheriff of Mercer county, settled four miles from Harrodsburg, where Burgin now is, and lived there until his death in 1802. His widow who survived him forty-four years, dying when ninety-two years of age in speaking of the cold year, said that her frozen breath often made the hairs on her head stand out as so many icicles, and that the mildest day during the winter was to her feelings, the coldest she ever felt before or since in any other winter.

The warmest winter that has been enjoyed by the people of Kentucky was that of 1825 and 1826. ‘The beautiful snow’ was not seen and mother earth was carpeted in green. There was no ice of any thickness and the ground was never frozen. The winter of 1836 was remarkably mild but not quite so balmy as was the winter ten years before. For these facts we are indebted to Mr. J. D. Marimon, deceased and Rev. S. S. Deering, now a resident of Nicholasville.

The third warmest winter on record was that of 1889 and 1890. Grass was green during the entire winter and in February peach trees were in bloom and many flowers in the yards. But on March 1 a cold spell set in that lasted ten days and ice two or three inches thick was formed.

Columbia, Ky., Aug. 2.-A report reached here Thursday of a tragedy that occurred near Gentry’s Mills, 13 miles east of this place, in which William Dehart was killed by Robert Anderson, Jr. It seems from the reports that Dehart had stated to go through Anderson’s father’s place and old man Anderson asked him not to go through. George Dehart, a brother of William Dehart, being present, and having an ax on his shoulder, started toward old man Anderson, saying, “I will kill you.” Anderson caught the ax and struck Dehart a blow. Then Dehart’s brother shot twice at old man Anderson where upon Robert Anderson, the young man, asked him not to shoot any more. Then Dehart turned and attempted to shoot young Anderson, and young Anderson fatally shot him, Dehart lived only 30 minutes.

Delaney, James Found Dead.

For many years James Delaney has occupied the basement of the old Methodist Church on Fairfax street, living alone and doing his own cooking. Someone looked into the window Friday morning and saw him lying on his bed and called the attention of the police. The door was broken open and he was found dead. The remains were in an advanced stage of decomposition and he had probably been dead for several days. He was addicted to sprees and the last seen of him alive was Tuesday of the preceding week. He was drinking and spoke of going to Lexington.

Coroner Brinegar was notified and impaneled a jury, composed of R. B. Brierly, J. W. Hampton, J. A. Eperson, R. F. Richardson, Eli Bruce and J. C. Smith. The verdict of the jury was that he died from unknown causes, but it is the opinion of most persons that death was caused by alcoholism and exposure. The remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery, services at the grave by Rev. B. B. Bailey.

His wife and children reside in Washington, D. C. His brother, John Delaney, is the only one of the immediate family now living.

Demaree, G. H. Three Were Killed.

Bloody Shooting Affray in the Capitol Hotel at Frankfort, Ky.

The Tragedy Is One of the Most Sensational in the History of the State—Details of the Bloody Event.

Frankfort, Ky., Jan. 17.—A bloody battle in the lobby of the Capitol Hotel at 1 o’clock Tuesday afternoon resulted in the killing of Ethel Scott, of Somerset, a nephew of Gov. Bradley, G. H. Demaree, of Shelbyville, assistant postmaster, Capt. C. H. Julian, and the wounding of Harry McEwan and a traveling salesman named Golden.

The principals in the bloody affair were ex-Congressman Dave Colson, of the Eleventh congressional district and Scott. The trouble was an old one, growing out of a fight at Chickamauga last year, when Colson commanded the 4th Kentucky volunteers, against Scott, who was a captain.

The tragedy is one of the most sensational in the history of “The Dark and Bloody Ground.” The killing occurred in the lobby of the Capitol Hotel, the principal hostelry of the state capital, the room being well filled at the time with politicians and others who are here attending the contests for state offices before the legislature. The witnesses to the affair were taken so much by surprise when the shooting began that most of them were almost panic stricken, and there are many and conflicting stories as to how the fight began. Col. Colson and a party of friends, among whom was Demaree, were sitting in the lobby engaged in conversation as Scott and Capt. Golden came up the stairs from the bar room. When they had advanced about half way across the room, walking in the direction of Colson, the latter, it is said, half rising from his chair, fired at Scott, who instantly returned fire.

The shooting then became general and bystanders are at variance as to the number engaged in it. Demaree was standing slightly in front of Colson, and young Scott is said to have crouched behind to ward off bullets from Colson’s revolver. In an instant Demaree fell dead, pierced by three bullets. Capt. Golden, who accompanied Scott, reeled to one side, falling in the arms of ex-Gov. James B. McCreary, exclaiming, “I am shot.”

The smoke in the locality of the antagonists became dense, but Colson continued to press Scott, who retreated backward, shooting as he moved. Colson emptied the chambers of a 48 revolver, and quickly brought a 44 into action. Scott by this time had been shot several times, and as he staggered back and fell down the stairway, Colson, who was within a few feet of him continued to fire till the lifeless form of Scott rolled over and showed life extinct.

The battle was terrific, and bullets fairly rained through the lobby of the noted, several of which went wild pierced window glass or imbedded themselves in the walls and furniture of the hotel. It was not discovered for several minutes afterward that Julian, who died later, had been shot, and at first his wound was thought to be only trifling.

After the killing Col. Colson ran out of the hotel and hurried to the residence of Chief of Police Williams, where he surrendered. He was almost exhausted, and he entered the house gasped: “I am sorry he would not let me alone. There were three of them shooting at me.”

Charles H. Julian, who was shot in the leg, died shortly after reaching a room, death being due to loss of blood and the shock to his nervous system.

Capt. Golden was removed to a room and made a statement that Colson was the aggressor.

Col. Colson, who killed Scott and who is charged with the killing of both Demaree and Julian, and with shooting Golden, has long been a prominent figure in Kentucky politics. He served two terms in Congress and declined a renomination at the hands of the republican party of the 11th district in 1898 in order to accept the colonelcy of the 4th Kentucky regiment in the Spanish war. Scott was a lieutenant and Golden was captain of a company in Colson’s regiment, and trouble which led to the tragedy here began then. A feud sprang up between Colson and Scott while the troops were in camp at Anniston, Ala., and in this it is said by Colson’s friends that Capt. Golden was a warm partisan of Scott. The trouble between them at that time culminated in a meeting between them in a restaurant which resulted in Colson being shot by Scott. The regiment was shortly afterward mustered out of the service as a result of the feud between the officers and the serious charges and counter-charges which they had made at Washington against each other as officers. Since then the parties had not met and it has been generally believed that blood would be spilled should they meet, as both were understood to be looking for each other.

Colson’s Trial Set

Frankfort, Ky., March 22

The case of Col. David G. Colson, charged with the killing of Ethelbert Scott and Luther Demaree in the Capitol Hotel lobby here, has been set for hearing the third week of the April session. Colson will, in all probability, be released on bail as soon as he is able to leave the hospital.

The Winchester Democrat   Tue., March 27, 1900

 

Colson Trial Begun.

All Civilians Are Searched for Arms Before Entering the Courthouse—Several Witnesses Are Absent.

Frankfort, Ky., April 18.—The Franklin circuit court was opened up in true East Kentucky style Tuesday morning, deputy sheriffs being stationed at each entrance to the courthouse, and no one being allowed to enter unless he permitted himself to be searched for concealed weapons. This was done on the order of Circuit Judge Cantrill. He gave no reason for the order except that he wanted peace in the court room. The cause of it was the calling of the case of Col. David G. Colson, the surviving principal of the Colson-Scott pistol duel of January 18,last.

After listening to motions and postponing a damage case pending before the court, the case was called, and both sides announced ready for trial. Col. Colson was in the court room with his attorneys when the case was called. His attorneys are L. C. Mynott and L. C. Houk, of Knoxville, Tenn., Burton Vance, of Louisville, Ex-Assistant District Attorney John G. Fitzpatrick, James Andrew Scott and Ben G. Williams, of this city. For the prosecution, commonwealth Attorney Robert B. Franklin will be assisted by county Attorney Jas. Polsgrove and Judge Geo. Denny, of Lexington. After several hours a jury was secured, the attorneys being unusually careful in selecting the panel.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, April 24, 1900

 

Frankfort, Ky., April 19.—The first day of the Colson trial failed to reveal positively who fired the first shots in the duel in the Capitol hotel lobby last January. Capt. Golden testifies that Colson fired the first shot while other witnesses for the commonwealth said both men fired about the same time, and still others said the report from the first shot was not as loud as the second. When the men met Colson had a 45-calibre pistol, while Scott had a 38.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, April 24, 1900

 

Frankfort, Ky., April 20.—John E. Paxton was placed on the stand Thursday morning in the Colston murder   trial.

Paxton was talking to Chas. Julian who was killed, when the fight commenced. Paxton said he couldn’t tell who fired the first shot, as he did not know there was any trouble until he heard the first shot.

Paxton said he was positive the first shot was not as loud as some that followed it. He said it was his impression that a man standing in the center of the room fired the first shot. He saw Colson follow Scott to the stairs. Colson stopped at the head of the steps and fired a shot down the stairs at Scott. Paxton is of the opinion that Charles Julian tried to escape by way of the front door when he was shot in the leg and bled to death.

As no agreement was reached relating to the testimony of Sheriff Watwood, the Commonwealth continued to introduce witnesses. Dr. G. F. Thompson testified as to the wounds on Scott’s body and hand.

J. M. Hargrove, of Somerset, Scott’s old home, told of the meeting of Colson and Scott at the republican convention at Lexington last July.

Attorney Franklin announced that the commonwealth, with the exception of sheriff Watwood’s evidence, was ready to close. The attorneys for the defense and the defendants held a short consultation, after which Attorney Williams arose and said they would like to be courteous, but they could not agree to permit the commonwealth to introduce a witness for the prosecution in the midst of the testimony for the defense. The court ruled that the witness was unavoidably detained, and the case would be suspended until Friday morning.

The attorneys for the defense then agreed to permit Watwood to testify just as soon as he arrives. Attorney Williams stated his case to the jury and the testimony for the defense commenced.

Colson Acquitted

The trial of D. G. Colson for killing Ethelbert Scott, in the lobby of the Capital Hotel at Frankfort, ended in a verdict of acquittal, the jury being out but a few minutes.   The verdict meets with popular approval, as it is thought Scott persisted in bringing on a difficulty. This ends a noted case; Scott is dead, Demaree is dead, Julian is dead, Golden and Colson have wounds, whose mark they will carry to the grave, but the whole matter will soon pass from the public mind to be succeeded by a new sensation.

Colson Not Guilty.

The Slayer of Scott and Demaree Walks Forth From the Court Room at Frankfort as a Free Man.

Frankfort, Ky., April 23.—David G. Colson, ex-congressman and colonel of the 4th regiment, Kentucky volunteer infantry, in the Spanish war, and on trial for four days past charged with the murder of Scott and Demaree, in the Capitol Hotel, was acquitted Saturday evening. The verdict was returned by the jury at 6:27, after being out only seventeen minutes. The verdict had been generally anticipated till the last minute of the trial of the case. Commonwealth Attorney Franklin closed the argument for the prosecution with a speech which was pronounced the supreme effort of his life, and its effects on the jury occasioned fear among Col. Colson’s friends till the verdict was returned. When the jury filed into the courtroom a few minutes after it retired, it was at once known a verdict had been reached and an acquittal was looked for. There was no demonstration, however, until Special Judge Herndon, who had been designated by Judge Cantrill to receive the verdict, said:

“Gentlemen of the jury, have you made a verdict?”

“We have,” responded one of the jurymen, at the same time handing a slip of paper to Sheriff Suter.

Circuit Clerk Ford had not finished reading the verdict, which read: “We the jury, find the defendant not guilty,” till the crowd in the courthouse, catching the import of it, broke into wild cheers.

Col. David Colson, who has been confined in the Franklin county jail, which is guarded by the Beckham state troops, and who was acquitted on his trial in the circuit court Saturday, addressed the soldiers Sunday morning in response to an invitation from them. He left for his home at Middlesboro Sunday night. His room was crowded all day by friends who called to congratulate him on his acquittal.

Frankfort, Ky., April 25.—The indictment against ex-Congressman David G. Colson, for killing Luther H. Demaree, was dismissed in the circuit court on motion of the commonwealth’s attorney in a statement in which he said the failure to secure a conviction for the killing of Scott made it certain that an acquittal would result as to the killing of Demaree.

Demma, Frank Body found in Cistern

Disappearance of son of Italian fruit dealer solved

Lexington, Ky., – Floating in a disused cistern in a vacant lot at Limestone and second streets the body of Frank Demma, 12, who had been missing since the afternoon of July 15th, has been found. The boy was a son of Joseph Demma, an Italian fruit dealer. The find was made by John Muth, son of P. Muth, a baker, who owns the property in which the cistern is located. The condition of the body was such that it was ordered taken immediately to a vault in the Lexington cemetery. The belief is gaining ground that the Demma boy was murdered. His father and mother visited the cistern the day after the disappearance and nothing was found there then. People in the neighborhood say the weights on the covering had not been moved for weeks and that the weights could not have been lifted by the boy.

Desha, Claude M. Found Dead

Hon. Claude Desha, one of the most prominent Democrats in that portion of the State, was found sitting on the stair steps of his residence at Cynthiana Friday dead from the effects of apoplexy. At the time of his death he was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Congress from the Ninth District.

Goebel’s Friend

Claude Desha, was found dead on the porch of his home

Cynthiana, Ky., – Claude M. Desha, candidate for the democratic nomination for Congress in the Ninth District was found dead sitting on the hall steps at his home. It is supposed Mr. Desha was taken suddenly ill and started for the front porch to get air and being exhausted, fell and expired. At the coroner’s inquest a verdict was rendered that Desha’s death was caused by apoplexy. Mr. Desha had been identified with politics in Kentucky for 20 years and stumped the state in several democratic campaigns. He and the late Gov. Goebel were warm personal friends, and it was Mr. Desha’s testimony in trial against Gov. Goebel for killing John Stanford that brought about an acquittal. Mr. Desha’s wife died about five years ago, and he leaves a daughter about ten years of age. Claude Desha was a son of Gen. Lucius Desha and a grandson of Gov. Joseph Desha, of Newport, and brother-in-law of Hon. H.C. Duffy, of this county.

Deshon, infant Death of a valuable baby

At Frankfort the three weeks old daughter of J.F. and Clementine Deshon died Tuesday.   It was called the “hundred thousand dollar baby” as its birth saved to the family of James Holt that amount which would otherwise have gone to the Masonic lodge. Lawyers say that even though the child is now dead, its birth gave its parents a fee simple to the big estate and that the lodge can have no further claim upon the property.

Death Of Mrs. Devereaux

Mrs. Maggie Devereaux, wife of Richard Devereaux, died at an early hour Saturday morning, at her home in Covington. She had been in declining health for several years and for several months past her condition has been extremely critical.

She was born in Indiana, but came to Winchester nearly thirty years ago, engaging in the millinery business with Mrs. Bettie Gordon. After Mrs. Gordon’s removal to Lexington, Mrs. Devereaux embarked in business for herself and for years was the most successful milliner in Winchester.   She had many friends and was most universally esteemed. With her family she removed to Covington a little over a year ago.

She is survived by her husband and two sisters, Mrs. John K. Specht, of Evansville, Indiana, and Mrs. Allan Tolle, of Covington, and one sister, Miss Mary Leavy, of Cincinnati.

The funeral services were held at Covington yesterday morning and the remains were interred in St. Joseph’s Cemetery Price’s Hill Cincinnati.

She was born in Derry, Ireland, but came to Kentucky from Maryland nearly forty years ago and with her family settled in bourbon county, near Clintonville, where she resided until a few years ago.

She is survived by her husband and five children, three sons and two daughters, Mr. Richard Devereaux and Mrs. Margaret Nunan of this city, Patrick and Daniel Devereaux, of Lexington and Mrs. Mary Haney, of Midway.

Nunan at his saloon corner of Maple and Washington streets, proceeded to his place of business and opened up the establishment. For some time he had been afflicted with heart trouble and suddenly he sank down in a chair and expired.

Mr. Devine was a native of Derry Ireland, where he was born about sixty-five-years ago. He came to Canada when quite young and afterwards to Kentucky and for past thirty years had been a resident of Winchester and Clark county.

The funeral took place from the Catholic church at 7 o’clock Thursday morning High Mass of Requiem being celebrated by Rev. Father Major, after which the remains were taken to Lexington for interment.

He was a man of sterling integrity and quite popular with all who knew him. He leaves a wife and stepson, John McCoy, of the firm of John McCoy & co. Merchant Tailors.

Devore, George Disastrous wreck

At White Station, Madison county two freight trains met head on, each going about forty miles per hour. The operator at Berea had been notified to hold one train until the other had passed, but forgot his orders and allowed the trains to meet. Both trains were wrecked and a number were killed and wounded. Those who were killed outright were: Geo. Devore, fireman, of Richmond; John Russell, brakeman, of Paris, and Buster Sanford, of Paris, engineer. James Rourke, a fireman from Paris, is so badly scalded that he will die. Those seriously injured are W.C. Hamilton, of Covington, Ollie Pike, of Paris, and W.C. Justice, of Scathe, Ky.

Devore, Sallie A weirdly romantic wedding was solemnized in the cemetery at Ashland Sunday morning. Mr. John Alford and Miss Zola Devore, of Columbus, Ohio, were made husband and wife over the grave of the bride’s deceased sister, Sallie. The Misses Devore were formerly residents of Ashland, and were both to have been married the same day more than a year ago, but Sallie was seized with a fatal illness and before expiring requested that her sister’s wedding take place over her grave. In accordance with this desire the trip from Columbus was made and the ceremony performed just as the sun was breaking through the fog and clouds that overhung the valleys.

Sentenced to hang

The Jas. DeWitt case, for the murder of his wife, was called in the Carter Circuit court Friday. The jury took the case and after being out all night, returned a verdict finding the defendant guilty and fixing his punishment at death. DeWitt has said from the time he made his last confession that he wanted to die, that his murdered wife was always before him and her dying screams were constantly in his ears, and that if the jury did not sentence him to hang he would ask for a new trial. When the verdict was brought in he got up and thanked the jury and laughed while being returned to jail.

DeWitt’s last day

Grayson, Ky., March 12 – Judge S.G. Kinner Wednesday had James DeWitt, convicted of wife murder, brought into court and fixed the time for his execution for Thursday, May 21. DeWitt answered in a clear voice that he had no legal reason why sentence should not be pronounced. When the judge named the day of his execution the prisoner smiled carelessly.

Dial, Georgia Committed suicide

Girl in house of ill fame took carbolic acid – Result of coroner’s inquest

Wednesday night a woman who went by the name of Georgia Dial committed suicide in a house of ill fame on the alley near Washington street. No particulars are known as to the cause. She had only been here a few weeks and that night she was visited by a man whom she had known before. He says there was no quarrel but some time after midnight she took a dose of carbolic acid and died in a few hours. Coroner Nunnelley held his first inquest over the body with the following jury: J.L. McCord, W.H. Hodkin, W.R. Patterson, H.H. Franklin, Pruitt Harris and C.B. Strother, who returned a verdict that she died from a dose of carbolic acid taken with suicidal intent. The body was removed to the undertaking establishment of Kerr & Bean, where it was prepared for burial. The woman was twenty-two years of age and her home was at Keystone, West Virginia.

Dickerson, Elisha Elisha Dickerson, the Tailor of Winchester

In the beginning of this century there came to Winchester a tailor by the name of Elisha Dickerson. He had learned his trade at Bryant’s Station, Ky., and proved himself an artist of no mean ability. He was as brave as if he had wielded a broadsword in place of a thread and needle, and woe betide the boy or man in this town who dared to call him “stichlouse,” he had need to cover his head with a helmet or an iron pot for security against the billet or “billie” that Dickerson carried to defend himself withal. In 1841 he removed to Nashville, Tenn., and plied his trade there with great success. He made a suit of clothes in that year for Andrew Jackson, which he wore at the battle of New Orleans, Jan. 1815 and which is now to be seen at the National Museum at Washington, D. C. Dickerson came back from Nashville to Winchester and when Gen. Jackson visited this town he greeted Dickerson cordially and seemed to have great respect for him. Dickerson lived at that time near where L. B. Clinkenbeard now lives. The streets in that early day were innocent of sidewalks and he had some difficulty in making his way through the slush in bad weather to the centre of the city. He was very sore on the subject of getting muddy, being very neat in his habits, and a friend intending to show his sympathy for him, said:

“Why don’t you sue the town and make it lay sidewalks?”

“What,” said Dickerson. “Bring suit in h_ll and let the devil sit as Judge.”

He was always on the watch for the first rose that bloomed and managed to appropriate and place it in his buttonhole, no matter in whose garden it bloomed. He was as generous as he was brave. He owned an old sorrel horse which he treated as well as one treats his best friend when he is anxious that he should serve him. One cold day when the snow lay deep on all the land in and about Winchester, a young man borrowed Dickerson’s horse and hitched him to a sleigh and called at a home where some young ladies were visiting and invited them to occupy the sleigh. They were soon seated and when the gallant got out of sight of Dickerson’s shop he beat the sorrel until he ran in a swift gallop. Dickerson was on the alert and just as the sorrel swept grandly around Flanagan’s hotel, he stepped up to the sleigh with a sharp knife, cut the horse from the traces and led him away and left the gallant and the ladies sitting in the sleigh to face the piercing cold.

When the time to depart this life approached, he met it as he had met everything that had crossed his path, without a sign of fear. Dr. Mills, his physician, told him one evening that he could not live through the night and he began immediately to set his house in order. He sent for Hon. John B. Houston to come and write his will and Judge James Flanagan and Dr. Mills were sent for to witness it. When Mr. Houston had finished the will, ready for the signatures, he turned to Dickerson and said:

“I suppose Mr. Dickerson than you have forgiven your enemies?”

The physician and everyone present and Dickerson himself thought that he was dying; but sprang out of bed and answered Mr. Houston’s question.

“No Sir! No D__n it No Sir! If I had them all here and they all had one body with one head on it, I’d shave that head off with a cleaver.”

He lived after that night for three months and then died—not having forgiven his enemies.

Requiescat in pace

Dickerson, Jimmy Police Identify Accident Victim

A man who was killed in a motorcycle crash early Friday morning has been identified as Jimmy Dickerson, 45, of Wooton.

According to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office, Deputy Brad Myers attempted to stop Dickerson at 12:06 a.m. because the headlights of his vehicle were not illuminated.   Dickerson, who was driving a 1996 Harley Davidson, pulled over at Redwing Drive and the Bypass, but took off at a high speed and headed toward the interstate at exit 94. Other officers then joined the pursuit.   While merging onto the interstate, Dickerson went through a barricade and almost struck two police cruisers and a civilian vehicle.

The pursuit continued east bound on I-64 for about four miles, with speeds reaching as high as 95 miles per hour. As he attempted to merge onto the Mountain Parkway, Dickerson lost control of the vehicle and struck a guardrail. He then left the road on the left side and hit a rock embankment.

Dickerson was pronounced dead at the scene by Clark County Coroner David Jacobs.

Williamstown, Ky., Aug. 12.—The examining trial of A. G. Elliston, who shot and killed R. A. Dickerson at Elliston station on last Wednesday evening with a shotgun, was begun at this place Saturday. The examining trial is being held before Police Judge H. Clay White, the county judge being ineligible on account of relationship to the defendant. The case was not more than half finished Saturday, and went over until Monday. The commonwealth’s evidence is all in, and the defense have gone far enough to clear Elliston on the ground that the deed was done in self-defense.

Diesback, Stephen Cruel murder

Stephen Diesback, exhibitor of the smallest pony in the world, was cruelly murdered in his tent, at the State Fair grounds in Lexington some time early Sunday morning. His home was in Watsontown, Pa., and robbery was the motive. After being shot through the head his brains were dashed out with a iron tent pin. In this condition and with the pony close at hand, he was discovered at noon by Andrew Hickey, a boy who had been helping him with the show. It is known that Diesback had $200 in money on his person and his habit was to conceal his earnings in his socks, as he had been heard to explain. Evidently the murderer, or murderers, knew this. Both socks were found turned inside out and rifled. A gold watch in his vest pocket was overlooked. The police are seeking an unnamed man who was in Diesback’s employ, thinking he may be able to shed some light upon the crime. The dead man was married and his wife has been notified. He was a Red Man, and members of the order are taking a deep interest in the awful affair. The Coroner’s verdict is in accordance with the facts above set forth.

Diggs, Bob                             AA Died at poor farm

Bob Diggs, colored, aged 87, died at the County farm on November 23rd. Bob is among the last old time cunning, petty thieves that thought he had a perfect right to “take” chickens and water “millions” from the rich white folks. Heredity is strong and the imported native from the Dark continent where all things were in common, and some had difficulty in learning to discriminate between line and thine. It has been a long dreary school through the brother in Black has had to pass but there is a good land of promise for those who are faithful in little things.

Dills, Cecil Sad accident

Cecil Dills drowned and Miss Fannie Sue Bush barely rescued

Our people were shocked Sunday evening when the new of an accident, which occurred near Lock No. 10, by which a popular young man lost his life and a young lady was barely rescued. Cecil Dills secured a horse and buggy from the livery stable of Clyde Gaines and, with Miss Fannie Sue Bush, went driving. Late in the afternoon they went up the river road from Boonesboro to Ford. The action of the river current had eaten away the bank along the road until it is very narrow, and when near a point near the dock had been reached, the horse became frightened at something and backed the buggy up the bank and then slid over the steep bank into the river. A couple of boats were on the river near by and went at once to their assistance and got there in time to save the life of Miss Bush. Mr. Dills sank just as the rescuers arrived and never came up. The horse was also drowned. Search was at once instituted for the body and was kept up until a late hour. It was resumed the next morning but up to the hour of going to press the body had not been recovered. Mr. Dills was about eighteen years old and was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Dills, of this city. He was quite popular and the sympathy of our people go out to the stricken parents. Miss Bush is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O.E. Bush, and her many friends rejoice at her escape from a watery grave.

Dollins, J. R. Sheriff Menifee, of Stanford, is one of those downright shifty sort o’fellows, who when it comes to money matters, show marvelous talents in the art of keeping even and far ahead. Four years ago the sheriff’s house on the Somerset pike burned, and in it was a lot of wheat and other valuables. J. R. Dollins, who was occupying the house with his family at the time, was accused of carelessness and responsibility for the fire, but he was poor and couldn’t have paid it if he had so wished. Menifee was out about $2,500 and he wanted to get it back, so he had Dollins’ life insured for that amount. He paid $400 in premiums, and the old man died. It was a genuine case of taking a mortgage on another’s life, but it can be said to the sheriff’s credit that he buried his debtor in style, providing a handsome coffin with bright imitation silver handles.—Lexington Leader

When he left Shelbyville for Louisville he was given a draft on the Chemical national bank, of New York, for $50. He continued to spree in Louisville, and complained to the police authorities that he had been touched for his cash and the draft. The bank here was notified, and wired the New York bank to withhold payment. His tragic suicide is attributed to remorse and losing his money.

Tributes Of Sympathy

Covered the Grave of Mrs. Jane Donovan. Her memory Hallowed by Many Good Deeds,

With sorrowed hearts the relatives and friends of Mrs. Jane Donovan assembled at St. Patrick’s Church Thursday, morning to offer their last tribute of love and tender regard.

At the conclusion of the sacred service, whose every word breaths solace to the Catholic heart, Father P. M. Jones spoke with eloquence and deep feeling of Mrs. Donovan’s gentle ministrations of kindness and duty which leave a memory hallowed by the   divinity of good deeds.

He said she was an example of virtues and valiant womanhood in the relations of mother, wife, friend and Catholic. Gentle, retiring, she went through life silently scattering kindnesses that evoke loving tributes to her memory now. At the cemetery Father Jones was assisted in the last services by Rev. W. B. Ryan, of Winchester, and Rev. DeBruyn, of Mayslick. A profession of flowers mutely attested the love of many friends and the new made mound was covered by the fragrant tributes of sympathy.—Maysville Daily Bulletin.

Doty, David Cowardly Murder

Our neighboring county of Madison was on Friday night the scene of a most brutal murder. David Doty, aged about thirty-five years and who had recently been elected one of the Magistrates, found that some one had been taking his horses from the stable and riding them at night. He set out to catch the offender and visited the stable just before going to bed. As he opened the stable door some one fired four pistol shots and Doty fell dead. Suspicion at once rested on Will, Thomas and Abe Taylor, three negroes of the vicinity and they were promptly arrested.

Robt. Neighbors, of Hardin county, who has some very noted bloodhounds, was sent for and although a heavy rain had fallen and twenty-four hours had elapsed since the murder, the dogs took the trail and went at once to the cabins occupied by these negroes, thus establishing their guilt in the minds of the people. Shortly after one of the prisoners confessed that he did the shooting. They went to get the horses to ride to a neighboring distillery and when Mr. Doty entered the stable he killed him in order to escape. The dogs excited much attention here but were not the formidable animals that many expected to see. “Duck,” the older of the dogs, is a very celebrated animal. He caught the negro fiend, Commodore Miller, who assaulted and murdered two white girls near Bardwell, Ky., last year.

After the negroes were lodged in jail at Richmond there were many threats of lynching and everybody expected it to happen Sunday night. Other counsels prevailed and the expected hanging did not take place. The murdered man was very popular. He married a niece of the late Dr. John Gilbert, of this county. She died a few years ago and by the assassin’s bullet a number of little children are left orphans.

WILLIAM TAYLOR was tried Wednesday at Richmond for the murder of David Doty, of Waco. He confessed the crime and exonerated the others under arrest. The jury was out only thirty-two minutes and brought in a verdict of guilty and fixing the punishment at death.

Will Hang January 11th

A special Sunday from Richmond says: William Taylor, the murderer of David C. Doty, filed grounds for a new trial Saturday morning, but was overruled by the Court. He was brought into the Court by the jailer before one of the largest and most representative crowds ever in the courtroom. Judge Scott commanded the prisoner to stand up and while so doing he pronounced the death sentence.

The defendant upon being asked if he had any legal cause to show why he should not be sentenced, he said he had not; that he committed the deed, and that he now regretted it.   The Court stated that the crime was one of the most brutal and atrocious ever committed and without any palliation or excuse; that death was a fit punishment for such a deed, both under the divine an human law.

Not withstanding the brutality of the act, which merited death, the law in its charity would give him ample time to prepare for his appearance before the Supreme Judge of the Universe. He thereupon decided that the Sheriff of Madison county should hang William Taylor by the neck until dead, in an enclosure in the courthouse yard in Richmond, KY., between sunrise and sunset, on Friday, January 11, 1895.

The scene was solen in and impressive. Taylor took his sentence with a strong nerve, and said he did not care how soon the day would come.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, December 18, 1894.

 

THOMAS and Abram Taylor, the brothers of the negro to be hung at Richmond, will probably be cleared of complicity in the murder of Doty, but stand a good chance of going to the penitentiary anyhow, as they have been indicted for breaking into the distillery of Shelby Jett at Doylesville.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, December 21, 1894.

 

JUDGE SCOTT and Commonwealth Attorney B. A. Cruther are receiving words of praise from all over the district for the speedy trial and sentence of Will Taylor, the murderer of Squire Doty. When is was thought that Tayler would be taken from the jail at Richmond and hung Mr. Crutcher slept at the prison two nights, so that if the mob came he might plead with it to let the law take its course. He also went to the brother of the murdered man and promised swift justice to Taylor if they would take no violent action in the matter.   Since Mr. Crutcher went into office he has made a record that is second to none of any other like official in the State. Jessamine has reason to be proud of the reutation that our former County Attorney has established. With such officials as Judge Scott and Commonwealth Attorney Crutcher , the welfare of our State, district and county is assured.-Jessamine Journal.

Will Taylor Hung

The mills of the gods grind slowly, but occasionally the sense of retributive justice becomes so keenly alive in the minds of the people that a criminal is punished before the people have forgotten his crime. Such an instance was the hanging of Will Taylor at Richmond Friday.   Murder after murder has stained the excutcheon of our sister county of every grade from the taking of life in angry strife to the cool, deliberate, premeditated assassination of a brother, and yet the murderers escaped the gallows. But the last drop in the full cup came when an honored citizen, an officer of the county was foully murdered in his own barnyard. This was too much and the aid of lynch laws would have been invoked had not Judge Scott and other officials promised a speedy and impartial trial, and used their influence to modify the righteous indignation of the people.

Our readers are familiar with the crime. A few months ago Squire David Doty became convinced that his horses and mules were being taken from the stable and ridden at night. Suspicion rested upon a family of negroes named Taylor who lived on his place. A negro, Green Kavanaugh, who lived with Doty, told him that if he would go to his stable at a certain time he would catch the culprit. Doty went and found Will Taylor leading a mule from the stable.   Doty spoke to the negro Taylor and the latter responded with a pistol shot followed by a couple of others and Doty fell dead. The Taylors and Kavanaugh were arrested and placed in jail on suspicion.   Bloodhounds were procured and they trailed the perpetrators to the Taylor cabin. All doubts were removed when Will Taylor, made a confession.   He said the other and nothing to do with the crime and that he alone was guilty. He was promptly tried and sentenced to death. Judge Scott fixing the date at the earliest day allowed by law.   The condemned man, who claimed to be a preacher, showed no emotion at any time except an increased religious fervor when preparations for his execution were made. The gallows was erected in the jail yard, but so high that those on the outside had a full view of the condemned man as he stood on the scaffold. Beginning the previous day people flocked from all parts of that county and the surrounding counties and the streets and houses near the jail were packed with people when the hour for execution came.

It had been expected by many that he would eventually make another confession implicating the other prisoners, but he stuck to his first statement that they had nothing to do with it. He made a rambling talk declaring that Whiskey had caused his downfall and warning others to beware of liquor and concealed weapons. After the cap had been adjusted over his face, Sheriff Simmons pulled the lever and the trap fell. Everything worked according to program and Taylor died without pain, his neck being broken. After hanging until pronounced dead by the physicians he was taken down and the remains were given to his half brother, Jas. Vaughn, of this city, and they were buried here Saturday.

This is the first legal hanging in Madison county since some time during the war, when a negro slave was hung for the murder of Lewis Eades, who lived near the Clark line.

Were legal hangings more numerous in Kentucky there would be fewer such disgraceful exhibitions of mob violence as have disgraced our State.

CITY, COUNTY, STATE-THE negro, Wm. Taylor, will be hung at Richmond to-day for the murder of Squire Doty.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, January 11, 1895.

 

The Madison county Grand Jury has indicted Abe Taylor, Tom Taylor and Green Kavanaugh for complicity in the murder of Squire Doty, for which crime Will Taylor was hung. These negroes were with Will Taylor the night Doty was killed and notwithstanding the latter insisted they had nothing to do with the killing, it is claimed that much evidence has been procured to show they were equally guilty. The two Taylors are now serving terms in the penitentiary for breaking into Jett’s distillery at Doylesville.

The Taylor Brothers Will Hang in October

Carrollton. Mo., Aug. 12.—At nearly midnight Sunday night the plea for a new trial was closed by counsel for the Taylor brothers, and Judge Rucker denied it and sentenced them to be hanged on October 4, next. Attorneys for defendants will appeal the case to the supreme court.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, August 13, 1895

 

The fall term of the Madison Circuit Court will convene Monday. There are 747 cases on the docket, divided as follows: 115 criminals, 251 old equity, 62 ordinary and 49 equity appearances. The most important criminal case is that of the Commonwealth against Green Kavanaugh, Tom and Abe Taylor, charged with complicity in the murder of Squire David Doty last December. The Taylors are now in the penitentiary at Frankfort serving a sentence for house-breaking, but they will be brought back and along with Kavanaugh, be tried for their lives. Many thought at the time of the execution of Bill Taylor that the others were equally guilty and ought to have suffered a like punishment. The trial will occupy several days of the term.—Richmond Register.

TO HANG

The Death Penalty Given to Dillard Rainey.

The Murder of Aaron Adams to Be Avenged. The Majesty of the Law Vindicated.

Not in a spirit of vengeance; not with an outburst of wrath nor with the savage senselessness of mob violence; but with the calm, dignified majesty of the law has the blood of Aaron Adams, which cries from the ground, been avenged, or will be when the sentence of the law is executed. A thrill of horror went through our people when the causeless, cruel murder was committed, and when the news spread Saturday that the death penalty had been awarded the murderer, there was a verdict of assent almost universal, and the only regret was that Matt Rainey, the prisoner’s father, did not receive the same sentence.

The crime was a most atrocious one, and with no mitigating circumstances. Matt Rainey and James Henry had differences concerning a piece of land near the mouth of Upper Howard’s Creek, and Henry had placed Frank Haggard in possession as a tenant. Rainey hauled the fence from around Haggard’s garden leaving it open to the stock. Haggard hauled the rails back again and a quarrel on the 13th of last May in which Rainey shot Haggard inflicting a wound that it was thought would prove fatal. Mrs. Haggard saw Aaron Adams passing along the road and asked him to go for a doctor.   Adams went after Dr. T. S. Allen, who lived near, and returning with the physician half an hour later, he was met by Matt Rainey and Dillard Rainey, father and son. Matt was armed with a gun and Dillard with a pistol.   The former raised his gun to shoot Adams, but was prevented by Dr. Allan. With an oath he told his son to shoot and the latter did so. As Adams sank down pierced with a number of balls, Matt Rainey savagely tried again to shoot him.

Deputy Sheriff Eperson was in the neighborhood and arrested Matt Rainey at once. Dillard escaped, although the officers once got close enough to shoot at him. He went through the mountains and was finally arrested at Roanoke, Va., under an assumed name. Matt Rainey was tried last fall and got a life sentence. He took an appeal and since has been in jail here. Two or three feeble attempts were made to mob him here last Spring but they lacked leadership. Since he has been in jail he has incurred the ill-will of the officers and fellow prisoners all whom concur in saying he is the meanest man with whom they have ever had dealings.

The trial of Dillard Rainey began last Tuesday. The evidence closed Thursday at noon and was argued until the next morning when it was given to the jury, which brought in a verdict of guilty and fixing the death penalty the next day. When the prisoner heard it he turned deathly pale and seemed almost overcome. He soon recovered and was taken back to jail cursing the jury and vowing that he would never be hung. Neither of the prisoners have ever shown any remorse for the poor widow and the six helpless children.

This will make the second sentence pronounced by Judge Scott, the other being the negro Will Taylor, who was hung for the murder of Squire Doty, in Madison county a year or two ago.

If Rainey is hung it will make the fourth legal hanging in the county, and the first white man to be hung.

Many years ago Jesse Winn, a negro, was hung near where Col. R. N. Winn’s residence now stands, for the murder of Wm. Emerson, a white man, who owned him or had him hired.

In August, 1839, a young negro named Knight was hung on the Lexington pike near F. H. Dudley’s.   He belonged to Mr. Morris who lived on Stoner and had committed a rape on a little white girl.

In April, 1841, a negro man, belonging to Daniel Spar, broke into a house and disemboweled his wife.   The latter got well, but the negro was hung for housebreaking. The negro woman belonged to Geo. Anderson and her assailant was hung near the far end of the C. and O. trestle on the side of Poynterville.

In November, 1850, Thomas Nichols killed his master, Fred B. Nichols, at a rock quarry on the Lexington pike. He was hung about Christmas of the same year. The late Wm. Simpson was Sheriff at the time, and not liking the job of hanging the negro, he employed Marsh Lawrence to tie the rope. A year or two later Marsh Lawrence was killed by his brother, Jack Lawrence. The latter fled to Missouri, but was caught, brought back and sentenced to be hung. He was the first white man in the county to receive the death sentence, but was finally pardoned by Gov. Powell.

About seventeen years ago, Ben. Plunkett was lynched, being hung to a tree in the Courthouse yard, the charge being an attempt assault on Miss Annie Ball, now Mrs. Bradford. In the fall of 1895 Bob Haggard was hung from the bridge on the Muddy Creek pike for a similar assault on Miss Elkin of near Ford.

No motion has yet been made for a new trial, but this will be done.

Since the death penalty has been given to Dillard, his father says he does not wish a new trial, but is inclined to accept the life sentence given him last fall. The general opinion is that if he should secure a new trial he would also be hung.

Near Paris, Sunday night, Ed Bryant, of Stanford, shot and killed Joe Doty, of Lancaster. The police of this city were notified and in a short time Bryant arrived in this city, was arrested and lodged in jail. He claimed that the two men were cutting him when he shot, and circumstances seemed to bear out his statements, as jailer Mullins secured the services of a surgeon to sew up a wound in his throat. Officer Ballard took him back to Paris on the following morning.

Death of Frank H. Dudley

Mr. Frank H. Dudley died at this home in the city at an early hour Tuesday morning in the seventy-sixth year of his age. He was a native of Fayette county, but in early life his parents moved to Missouri where he was raised. About the time he attained his majority the discovery of gold in California and the accession of that State as a result of the Mexican war, produced intense excitement throughout the country and he joined the great body of those who composed the famous “Forty Niners”. He afterward returned to Missouri and joined the Confederate Army under General Price. Since the Civil War he has been a citizen of Clark County and there has been hardly an important enterprise in the county in that time with which he has not been identified. He was a close relative of the famous Bishop T.U. Dudley, and his church was very precious to him. The existence of Emanuel Episcopal Church, this city, is due almost wholly to his efforts and assistance. While devoted to his own church he was broad and liberal in his views, and was always willing to help in any good work, no matter who had it in charge.   Next to his church he held the Masonic order in esteem. He was the oldest continuous member of Winchester Blue Lodge and probably also of Winchester Chapter of Royal Arch Masons.   He was a thirty-second degree Mason of the Scottish Rite and was the first Eminent Commander of Winchester Commandery of Knights Templar, a position he held at his death. He was for a long time connected with the bankrupt court and held the position with skill and fidelity. He leaves a wife, formerly Miss Nannie Kimbrough, and four sons, Thomas, of St. Louis, Mo., Matt of Las Vegas, New Mexico., Tebbs and Charlie, of this city. His funeral was held at the Episcopal Church, with services by Rev. Frank B. Wentworth, assisted by Rev. Savage and Weber. The burial was held under the auspices of the Knights Templars, led by Past Eminent Commander Howard French, of Mt. Sterling. The remains were taken to Lexington for burial. At Lexington the services were continue by Bishop Burton and Rev. Wentworth. The following Templars went from here as an escort, a special coach being provided, and were joined at Lexington by a large delegation from Webb Commandery: Judge Howard French, J.W. Wheeler, Dr. J.C. Vaught, D.B. Scobee, W.P. Hieatt, J.N. Hisle, B.S. Bartlett, Jas. A. Boone, Clayton Wills, Dr. J.N. Rankin, Dr. Glenmore Combs, Dr. Gen F. Clark, J.C. Hay, W.P. Hampton, D. T. Matlack, James Powell, F.B. Wentworth and J.W. Tuttle. Several members of the Blue Lodge also went. In the death of Mr. Dudley the community has lost one of its leading and most influential citizens, the church and Masonic bodies a zealous and consistent member and the family, a loving husband and father.

Dudley, Gilbert Ballard Bronston, son of Collector T. S. Bronston, shot and killed Gilbert Dudley at Richmond last Thursday. It is claimed by Bronston that Dudley had been too intimate with his wife and he shot Dudley without a word having passed between them. Gilbert Dudley, who was a nephew of Dr. John D. Gilbert, of this county was a clever, kindly natured boy, and conceding that he had done Bronston a grievous wrong, (which is by no means certain) he deserved a better fate than to be shot down from behind without a word of warning.

The Winchester Democrat     Wed., 3-28-1888

 

The trial of Ballard Bronston for the murder of Gilbert Dudley, which occupied the Madison Circuit Court during the whole of last week, terminated Saturday in a verdict of acquittal. The killing was caused by alleged undue intimacy on the part of Dudley with Bronston’s wife.

MRS. BALLARD BRONSTON, of Madison county, died last week from a dose of poison administered by her own hand. It was concerning her alleged unchastity that her husband killed Gilbert Dudley some years ago. Bronston was acquitted on his trial, but was afterward killed by his brother-in-law, Maupin.

Dudley, infant son               AA Early Thursday morning a couple of colored boys found a small coffin alongside one of the new streets in the back of Thomson’s addition. On examination it was found to contain the body of a colored male infant, evidently about four months old. Owing to the sickness of Coroner Boone, Squire Parrish held an inquest, and while the evidence dissipated the belief in foul play that was first entertained, it was truly revolting. The infant was the child of Lloyd Dudley and had died Monday of cholera infantum. To save the trouble of digging a grave for it, the father stuck the body in a culvert from which it was washed by the hard rain of Wednesday night. As soon as the fact became known he left and has not been seen since.

Dudley, Thomas Hunting accidents

The advent of the hunting season has been productive of many deplorable accidents and our exchanges contain accounts of many throughout the State. At Flemingsburg Monday Mr. Thos. Dudley, one of the most prominent merchants and citizens of that place, had both eyes shot out and his face and neck terribly mutilated by Clarence Cottingham, a companion, with whom he and several others were hunting. His injuries will likely prove fatal. At Millers Station Monday Mr. Richard Crump and his two sons, Samuel, aged fourteen, and Charlton, aged seventeen, of Carlisle, were engaged in hunting when Samuel was accidentally shot by his brother and instantly killed, the charge striking him just above the heart.

Dudley, Thomas P. FIFTY-EIGHT YEARS OF ACTUAL SERVICE AS

A MINISTER-A CHURCH 93 YEARS OLD WITH BUT TWO PASTORS ALL THAT TIME, FATHER AND SON

We are permitted to take the following extract from a private letter of the career of the very venerable Eld. Thos. P. Dudley, of Lexington, Kentucky: Mr. Dudley was born near Lexington, on the 31st of May, 1792, and as he says, is one day older than the State of Kentucky, which makes him, on the 31st of next May, 87 years old. In 1812 he was with the army of the Northwest, and was taken prisoner by the Indians, and witnessed the massacre at Raisin. In June 1814, he joined the Kentucky Volunteers, and was at the memorable battle of New Orleans, July 8th, 1815. Returning home, he was for several years engaged in merchandising in Winchester with his brother, Parker Dudley, the father of our townsmen, F. H. and P. B. Dudley. He commenced preaching in the latter part of 1820, as an assistant of his father at Bryan’s Station. In August 1832, he was called to Elizabeth in Bourbon County. In 1831, he was called to Mt. Carmel, Clark county, and in 1832 to the church at Georgetown. Thus it will be seen he has been preaching at Bryan’s Station 58 years, at Elizabeth 55 years, Mt. Carmel 48 years, and at Georgetown 46 years.   He was in constant attendance to all four, and preached at each once a month. The church at Bryan’s Station has been organized 93 years the 15th of next April, and has had but two pastors all this time, Mr. D. and his father. Mr. Dudley is yet hale and hearty, and preached at Mt. Carmel, in this county on the 1st of November last, and then rode to his home in Lexington, a distance of 27 miles, the same evening. Really he is a nonesuch.

Dudley, Thomas Underwood A Good Man Goes.

The death of Bishop Thomas Underwood Dudley, which occurred in New York Friday, removed from the stage of action one of the most remarkable men of his time. Born in Richmond, Va., September 26, 1837, he was in the sixty-seventh year of his age. He graduated with distinction from the University of Virginia in 1858, and was an assistant professor in that institution until the outbreak of the Civil War. Dr. Dudley volunteered his services in the cause of the South and served throughout the war, his valiant service securing for him the distinction of Major.   On June 28, 1867, he was ordained a deacon, and that ordination was followed June 26, 1865, by the bestowal of the honor of priest. He was called to Kentucky where on May 31, 1874, he was consecrated in the office of assistant bishop. On January 27, 1875, he was consecrated as a bishop in which capacity he served for the diocese of Kentucky up to the time of his death. He was truly a good man, and many there live to-day to bless his memory and deplore his loss. The remains were brought to Louisville where he funeral and burial took place yesterday.

Duke, Esq.,. of Scott county in which the former received the ball of the latter in the leg some three or four inches above the knee shattering the bone badly.

Dunn, Britton John and James Dunn, of Fleming county, have been acquitted of the charge of murdering their brother, Britton Dunn.

The Semi-Weekly Sun     Fri., 10-24-1879

 

Seven years ago Flemingsburg was startled by the assassination of a farmer named Britton Dunn, whose dead body was found at his barn door. He was called from his house by a noise at his barn was murdered. Suspicion at once rested on his brother James, who profited very considerably by his death, but the commonwealth could not establish its case. The Governor offered $500 reward, but nothing came of it. Notwithstanding, the best detective talent at home and abroad worked the case. James Dunn borrowed a pistol the night before and would never account for it, claiming to have lost it. James Dunn’s examination resulted in his acquittal, but his old neighbors ostracized him and he soon dissipated the blood money he got. Yesterday evening a man named Vice found the tell-tale pistol hidden under the rotten timbers of the barn, with two chambers empty, the same number of bullets having been shot into the deceased. Newman, the man who owned the pistol has positively identified it as the one he loaned the fratricide. James Dunn can be tried for the offense, as he has never yet been put in jeopardy, his previous trials having been mere examinations and not founded on indictment. His present whereabouts are not definitely known, but no expense will be spared to discover him. He has been heard from within a year, and he is almost certain to be captured. The old neighbors of the murdered man are nearly as much excited over the solution of the murder as they were at its discovery.

Durham, Bert S. Murders three in revenge

San Diego discharged fireman kills former companion and his own family – suicides

San Diego, Cal., Aug. 2 – After killing three persons, including his wife and child, mortally wounding a fourth and severely wounding a fifth, Bert S. Durham, a discharged driver of the local fire department, and believed to have been insane, ended a man hunt by shooting himself through the head. Durham, in a desire for revenge, turned in a false alarm and when his former fellow workmen responded he fired a volley of shots at them, killing one and probably fatally injuring two others. Durham then ran to his home and with a piece of steel wrapped in a handkerchief beat his wife and baby about their heads as they lay asleep killing both. Durham, who had been hunted relentlessly for hours, dodged his pursuers, leaving them without a clue, boarded a car in the residence section and rode quickly to the plaza in the center of the business district, where he put a bullet into his brain.

Duvall, Moses                     AA The Warsaw Independent had the following: “Moses Duvall, an old colored blind man, who has been living at the county poorfarm, died there Tuesday from a disease resembling dropsy. He was born in Carroll county and was about sixty-five years old. In slave times he belonged to a man named Duvall. When a small child he lost his eyesight through an attack of illness and was blind ever after. His sense of perception and feeling was remarkable. For many years he followed the occupation of wood-sawyer and chopper and he was able to find any residence in the town, saw and chop wood as neatly and carefully as one blessed with the best of sight. In chopping wood in the country he would hide his ax after his day’s work was completed and never had any difficulty in finding it on his return to work. His eating and drinking faculties were remarkable. One day a gentleman proposed to purchase as much cheese as he could eat at one meal, and without going away from the grocery counter the old darkey devoured four pounds of cheese. A gallon of beer at one draught was an ordinary accomplishment with him and a pint of whiskey was served in the same manner, yet he was not a drunkard. He recognized everyone on the street by the sound of their voice, and was a very familiar figure on the streets of Warsaw. The remains of the old man were interred in the county cemetery on the poor farm near Vera Cruz.”

Death of James Dykes.

James Dykes died at his home on the Boonesboro pike, seven or eight miles from the city, Monday night, aged about sixty-four years. The cause of his death was a most malignant carbuncle. It was thirteen inches in length and physicians say the records of medical science show but few of such enormous size.

The funeral was held at the family residence near which the remains were buried. He leaves a wife and five sons, most of them grown or nearly so. He was a quiet, orderly farmer and one of our very best citizens.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, January 14, 1898

 

In Memoriam

James Dykes was born the 21st day of December, 1834, near Boonesboro, in Clark County, Ky. He was a son of James Dykes and Susan Hooten Dykes, and was one of nine children, three brothers and six sisters, all living except one sister who died at an early age. He married January 16, 1861, Sarah Johnson.

It was the pleasure of the writer to enjoy the hospitality and association of Mr. and Mrs. Dykes at their pleasant home when in health.

Mr. Dykes was afflicted with a carbuncle, the largest perhaps to be found on record. His heroic battle against this painful, malignant pustule was altogether admirable, but only death which was on January 11, 1898, could conquer the indomitable will.

He was a member of the Baptist Church at Providence; a true Christian , a faithful friend, and a good and kind husband and father; he gave his life unreservedly to business and the farm. Everything he did was with neatness and order. He had enemies few and who if good for anything, has not?

He always met his friends with a pleasant smile and had a kind word for all.

He leaves a devoted wife and five sons, Allan, Ealler, Andy, Clinton and Ollie.

Let us share with your grief and sorrow and kindly accept the sincere sympathy of many friends and kind neighbors.     H. C. Hart

The school question was   a bone of contention in the last meeting of the City Council of Richmond. The new board asked for a tax of ten cents on the hundred dollars for the payment of the interest on the new school bonds, and a further tax of eighteen cents to support the school. The first named tax was levied but the council refused to levy the last, whereupon the School Board, one of whom is Jas. Dykes, formerly of this county, notified the council that they would institute legal proceedings to compel the council to comply with their request.
