Fagan, G. W. He Used A ShotgunSchool Teacher Kills Two BrothersWitness Was Found Dead in Bed the Morning After the Killing.Livingston, Ky., Nov.4.—John Meadows shot and killed John and Clayton Matthews, brothers at Pine Hill, this county, Wednesday night. Meadows was a school teacher.

The Mathews brothers followed Meadows from the school house to G. W. Fagan’s store, where Meadows secured a shotgun, with which he did the killing. Meadows surrendered to the authorities and is now in jail.

Fagan, the most prominent witness in the killing, was found dead Thursday morning in his storeroom, where he had slept for years. The indications are that he was murdered, and the coroner will hold an inquest.

The difficulty arose about some school notices having been torn down. It is alleged, by the Matthews brothers.

Farney, Charley A Sad Affair. Six little boys drowned in Kentucky River. One of those terrible calamities that take all the light out of a happy household, and that appeal so strongly to the sympathies of every parent, occurred near the mouth of Howard’s Upper Creek Saturday evening. A number of little boys and two or three men were bathing in the Kentucky river at that point. The water was quite shallow in some places and deeper in others. Eight little boys had waded across the river and were returning in a canoe, which was propelled by Claiborne Brock and Henry Wright. These men were not in the boat but were in the water pushing or pulling it. The boys became frightened at something and overturned the boat in deep water.   Messrs. Brock and Wright each swam to the bank with one of the little fellows, but before they could return the other six had gone down in death. Help was summoned and the bodies of the unfortunate children were found in a short time. Those who were lost were Kelley Farney, aged about fourteen years, Claud Farner, thirteen, Walter Farney, eleven, and Charley Farney nine. These were children of Jas. H. Farney; the other two were Algin Brock and Winther Brock, aged twelve and nine years, sons of the late Rev. Henry Brock, and uncles of the other boys, Mr. Farney having married a daughter of Mr. Brock. The two saved were Walker Brock, a brother of the two drowned boys, and Tommie Oliver, a son of J. Simps. Oliver. Coroner Alexander was notified and went to the scene of the disaster Sunday morning.   A jury composed of John Goode, foreman, W.F. Clemons, J.S. Jordan, J.N.C. Tuttle, J.B. Ware and S. P. Bush was impaneled and brought in a verdict in accordance with the foregoing facts. The bodies were interred in the old Brock burying ground Monday morning; funeral services by Rev. J.H. Williams. The sympathy of all our people go out to the parents thus suddenly bereft of their children.The Democrat, Wednesday, August 3, 1892.

Farney, Kelley A Sad Affair. Six little boys drowned in Kentucky River. One of those terrible calamities that take all the light out of a happy household, and that appeal so strongly to the sympathies of every parent, occurred near the mouth of Howard’s Upper Creek Saturday evening. A number of little boys and two or three men were bathing in the Kentucky river at that point. The water was quite shallow in some places and deeper in others. Eight little boys had waded across the river and were returning in a canoe, which was propelled by Claiborne Brook and Henry Wright. These men were not in the boat but were in the water pushing or pulling it. The boys became frightened at something and overturned the boat in deep water.   Messrs. Brock and Wright each swam to the bank with one of the little fellows, but before they could return the other six had gone down in death. Help was summoned and the bodies of the unfortunate children were found in a short time. Those who were lost were Kelley Farney, aged about fourteen years, Claud Farner, thirteen, Walter Farney, eleven, and Charley Farney nine. These were children of Jas. H. Farney; the other two were Algin Brock and Winther Brock, aged twelve and nine years, sons of the late Rev. Henry Brock, and uncles of the other boys, Mr. Farney having married a daughter of Mr. Brock. The two saved were Walker Brock, a brother of the two drowned boys, and Tommie Oliver, a son of J. Simps. Oliver. Coroner Alexander was notified and went to the scene of the disaster Sunday morning.   A jury composed of John Goode, foreman, W.F. Clemons, J.S. Jordan, J.N.C. Tuttle, J.B. Ware and S. P. Bush was impaneled and brought in a verdict in accordance with the foregoing facts. The bodies were interred in the old Brock burying ground Monday morning; funeral services by Rev. J.H. Williams. The sympathy of all our people go out to the parents thus suddenly bereft of their children.The Democrat, Wednesday, August 3, 1892.

Farney, Sylvia                       AA Committed suicideIt is not often that a member of the colored race finds life such a burden as to “shuffle off this mortal coil” by his or her own hands, but it sometime occurs. Late Saturday afternoon Sylvia Farney, a negro aged about twenty years and living on Winn Avenue, was taken very sick and Dr. Lyon, who was summoned, pronounced it a case of morphine poisoning which it proved to be, the woman dying about five o’clock. Coroner Brinegar held an inquest without a jury and returned a certificate that her death was caused by morphine taken with suicidal intent. The girl had a lover who worked on the C & O road somewhere near Morehead. Some time ago he cut another negro from the effects of which the latter died. The assailant was arrested and placed in jail and the woman brooded over it until she took her own life.The Winchester Democrat   Tuesday, Oct. 23, 1906

Farney, Will Will Farney is DeadThis intelligence will carry a pang of sorrow to many of our readers today. Kind, patient and helpful he was of that class of men who attract their fellow men and hold their friendship through life. Having buried father, mother, wife and children he knew the depths of sorrow of which the human heart was capable, and this fact gave him a sympathy and feeling of tenderness which was quick to respond to every demand for assistance. Notwithstanding this, his disposition was so cheerful that he was like a ray of light among his companions. He had strong convictions of what was right and wrong which he followed with all earnestness of his nature, and this made him a natural leader of men. In fact from his early manhood there has been no man who wielded such influence in that section of the county where he was raised and where the people knew him best. More than once during fierce political conflicts in this county has he changed the current of events by his earnest work in Goode’s precinct, and when he aspired to office himself his friends rallied around him, eager to show their devotion and fought his battle with a devotion that would brook no defeat.   He performed the duties of sheriff in a manner that reflected honor upon himself, his party and his county, and the party showed its appreciation by again selecting him as its standard bearer.In the prime of life, with the full confidence of his fellow citizens and seemingly with many years of usefulness before him, the insidious poison of typhoid fever entered his system. For weeks he lingered, sometimes better and at other times worse, but all the time nearing the shore of the dark river which he crossed Friday morning. The Christian church was filled with friends that evening when Eld. Spencer spoke so feelingly of life and its duties, and its relations to the other life beyond the grave. The next day the remains were carried to Log Lick where his wife and children have lain for many years.A sister, Mrs. Jordan Eades, is the only survivor of the family.

Peace to his ashes.

Maurice Rosenthal, a Jewish clergyman, was aroused from his sleep early Tuesday by hearing a stranger in his house in East 136th street. Arming himself with a pistol, he went into the parlor, where he was attacked by the intruder. The two men fought desperately for a few moments, the burglar proving to be the stronger. At last the clergyman fired the pistol full in the face of the burglar who fell unconscious, a bullet having torn out his left eye and entered his brain. The wounded man was taken to a hospital where he recovered sufficiently to reveal his name and address as William Farrell, of North Third Street, Philadelphia. He is about 21 years of age and of powerful build. The surgeons say he can not recover.The Winchester Democrat, Friday, November 18, 1898

Farrow, John B. Made Affidavits.Lynching Feared By Three Negroes Now in Covington Jail.Covington, Ky., June 9.—Tom Mann, Charles Sanders and Ed Morris, three Negroes who were held in jail here for the Mason county authorities to save them from lynching, made affidavits Monday before Deputy County Clerk Charles Lambert in support of an application that will be made to Circuit Judge Harbeson in Maysville, Tuesday, on their behalf for a change of venue. The affidavits set forth that when they were under arrest in Maysville a mob formed and attempted to get at them to lynch them and that last week, when they were about to be removed to Maysville for trial a mob again formed and waited for them at the depot in that city for the avowed purpose of lynching them. The crime they are charged with is that of robbing, shooting and brutally beating a farmer named Farrow and his wife at their home on the outskirts of Maysville.The Winchester Democrat, Friday, June 12, 1903

 

State Troops

Will Be Sent To Maysville To Protect Three Negroes On Trial

Frankfort, Ky., June 13

State troops will go to Maysville Monday to protect, during trial, the three colored men accused of shooting John B. Farrow, an aged farmer whom they had robbed.   About 100 men will go, under command of Maj. Nelson Edwards, of Newport. The three men have been in the Covington jail for safe keeping since they were arrested last January.

An armed mob gathered at the Maysville station last week to lynch the men when it was tipped off they were to be brought back for trial. Seeing the danger, the authorities wired to Covington to hold the men there.

The Winchester Democrat   Fri., June 19, 1903

 

The Negroes Convicted.

A Heavy Expense Incurred in Saving them From Lynching.

Maysville, Ky., June 20.—the state troops left here at 4:30 Friday afternoon by special train over the L. & N. for Frankfort, Sheriff Robertson with the three Negro burglars and would-be murderers, Mann, Morris and Sanders accompanying the soldiers. Mann and Morris were given 15 years each on the two charges—five for shooting and wounding and ten for burglary. They were tried Friday on the latter charge, the jury giving them the limit after being out ten minutes.

Sanders was not tried on the charge of burglary, as he was used as a witness against the others. The Negroes have cost the state a pretty penny, as over 100 guards have been on duty here since Tuesday morning. It is the general opinion, however, that an attempt to lynch them would have been made had the troops not been ordered here.

Young is of a prominent family.—Jessamine Journal.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, May 17, 1898

 

IN the case of John D. Young Jr., under the conviction and sentence for the killing of Plinney Fassett, in Bath county, Judge Cooper promptly granted a motion for a new trial and also granted a change of venue to Menifee county. It was proved by four witnesses that one of the jurors had frequently expressed the opinion that the defendant was guilty of murder and ought to suffer the extreme penalty for that crime. Young has been tried three times. The first trial resulted in a hung jury, the second in a sentence of fifteen years in the penitentiary and the third a five year sentence.

Faulkner, George —Powell, though one of the smallest counties in the State, has a recent record for killing equal to any. A dispatch from Stanton says that on Tuesday night Joel Gay, aged seventeen, the only son of Capt. Weeden D. Gay, shot and killed George Faulkner, aged eighteen years, while he was passing by on horseback. No cause for the shooting was shown, except intoxication on the part of Gay. Sometime during the night York Bowen shot Gay in the left breast, inflicting a painful, thought no dangerous wound.

Notice of contest was at once entered by their attorney and a legal fray over the will is expected. There is one son, Mr. Henry Ferguson, and several grandchildren.

Mr. Ferguson was the son of John Ferguson and the grandson of Dr. Richard Ferguson, who was one of the most celebrated surgeons in Kentucky in early days. He attended Gen. Geo. Rogers Clark and amputated his leg. He left a large fortune, of which the estate bequeathed Monday, valued at $40,000, was a part. Mrs. Combs is the widow of Charles Combs. She is said to be a very prepossessing woman.

Phil P. Chinn Filed Attachment Suits Against Mrs. Bessie L. Ferguson.

Lexington, Ky., Aug. 9.-Phil P. Chinn and wife Friday filed attachment suits against Mrs. Bessie L. Ferguson, widow of he noted starter, J. B. Ferguson, and mother of Mrs. Chinn. Late in the day 14 thoroughbreds belonging to Mrs. Ferguson and located at Kingston stud, which Mrs. Ferguson sold to R. L. Baker for training, developing and racing four horses and several lesser claims. He sues for recovery of the $2,433.35 and for a half interest in the high-steppers. Andrew King, Step Around and Lady Wadsworth, the thoroughbreds she has had in charge, alleging that the defendant had entered into a contract with him by which he was to receive a half interest in said horses for training, developing and racing them. He alleges in his petition that the defendant is attempting to transfer her horses to Mrs. Maud Ferguson, wife of the son of the defendant, Garnett Ferguson, of San Francisco, and unless restrained by law would ship said horses out of the state. He says this bill of sale was without consideration and entered into “for the fraudulent purpose of depriving plaintiff of his interest in said stock and to prevent him from recovering his claim or any part thereof.” Mrs. Chinn sets up in her suit a claim against her mother for $1,500, subject to a credit of $400 for services as a bookkeeper and otherwise. The horses levied upon are youngsters in training.

Ferguson, William A DASTARDLY CRIME; Three Persons Poisoned by Arsenic in Their Coffee; One of the most diabolical crimes of which we have knowledge was perpetrated near Grassy Lick, Montgomery county, this week, by which Messrs. William Ferguson and Brack Watts lost their lives. Mr. Watts was a son-in-law of Mr. Ferguson and lived with him. At the breakfast table on Thursday morning, Messrs. Watts and Ferguson drank of the coffee prepared for the meal and in a few minutes symptoms of poisoning were manifested and a physician was hastily summoned. Nothing could be done however and the two victims died the following morning. Grace Boyd, the twelve-year-old granddaughter of Mr. Ferguson tasted of the coffee and was made very ill, but recovered. Mrs. Ferguson does not drink   coffee and Mrs. Watts being ill was on a milk diet. These composed the family. An analysis of the coffee showed arsenic in large quantities. Nothing is certainly known as to how it came there, but suspicion is said to certain parties living near, with whom Mr. Watts had some trouble a few days before his death. This was so slight, however,   that it seems almost incredible that so horrid a crime could be based upon it.The coffee was prepared the night before and left upon the stove. Mr. Watts spent the evening with a neighbor and on his return, closed the kitchen door, which had no lock. The next morning it was found open. The theory is that some one entered during the night and put the poison in the coffee pot.Mr. Ferguson was 78 years old, and was a veteran of the Mexican war. He leaves four children, Mark, who formerly lived near this city, George, who married Miss Maggie Bruner, of this county, Annie, the wife of Mr. Watts, one of the victims, and Hester, the wife of Edgar Boyd, of Montgomery.Mr. Watts was twenty-nine years old and leaves a wife but no children. He was a son of Fielding Watts, of this county, where his remains were buried.

Our correspondent, near the scene of the crime, writes us that intense excitement prevails there, and should sufficient proof be found, the perpetrator would be lynched without ceremony.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, March 11, 1891

 

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS. In the Grassy Lick Poisoning Case—Two of Them Confess.

As stated in the account of the Grassy Lick poisoning, as given in our last issue, it was believed by many that the poison was placed in the coffee by some tenants on Watts’ farm with whom he had had trouble a few days previous. As matters developed, suspicion pointed more and more strongly to these men and public sentiment pointed strongly towards trying them in Judge Lynch’s court. Tuesday night a crowd gathered on the Grassy Lick pike for this purpose, but wiser counsel prevailed and the crowd dispersed. On the   following morning the officers of the law arrested John L. Wigginton, aged 60 years, and his sons, Frank, aged 30, Charlie, aged 23, and John, aged 12, as they were at work in the field, near their house. When they saw the officers approaching they were badly scared and guilt was plainly written on their faces. They were taken to Mt. Sterling and placed in jail. For several nights a mob was expected to attempt to lynch them, but Jailer Tipton is a brave man and promised the mob a warm reception should they try to take his prisoners from him. With the remembrance of the fate of Jack Ringo and his companions, who attempted the same job a few years ago, the mob wisely refrained. Frank, the eldest son, made a confession of the motives and manner of committing the crime, to a Sentinel-Democrat man as follows:

“I am unmarried and live at my father’s house—Charley and I went to Fergusons house—I staid outside and Charley took the poison in and put it in the coffee pot—Charley and Breck Watts had had a difficulty in a settlement about some tobacco and Charley was mad at him—this is what we did it for—don’t know whether my father or step-mother knew of it or not—it was talked about at the house—John knew we were going to do it, but he didn’t go with us—we bought the arsenic at a drugstore, I think it was on Main street—Charley paid for it and carried it home—it was 10 cents worth—we got it a day or two before it was put in Fergusons coffee pot—don’t know just how long before—I have another brother, Newt who lives in Fayette county—he was not there—there was no one connected with the crime but Charley and I—my father’s wife is my step-mother—she has five children—John who is in jail upstairs is her oldest.”

The father and the other two boys denied all knowledge of the crime, but no doubt exists in the minds of anybody as to the guilt of at least a part of them. The mother said in regard to the matter: “The boys were mad at Brack Watts about a settlement and that Frank and Charley did the poisoning. The matter was talked of before the whole family and she and her husband tried to persuade them not to commit such a terrible crime. She said the boys carried a small package of something home wrapped up in paper, with a newspaper around the outside; but she did not know whether it was the poison or not,”

The prisoners were brought before Judge Apperson, Friday for examination. The old man and the boys were discharged, there being no evidence to connect them with the commission although they evidently knew of it. Frank and Charley were held over without bail until June term of the Circuit Court. The prospects for a first-class judicial hanging are decidedly good. The Sentinel Democrat thus describes the two murders: “Frank the eldest son is a small, mostly sandy, degenerated specimen of humanity with just sense enough to tell the truth. Charley is a man of pretty much the same complexion as Frank, but is much larger and has more sense.”

LATER: On Saturday night a mob went to the house of Thos. Martin, formerly of this county, where the old woman and little children were staying for the night. The old woman was   taken out and strung up, when let down, she confessed that all the   family knew about it; that the old man bought the poison; that the boys had determined to burn the house on the same night the poison was administered had they found no opportunity to   enter the kitchen. The mob went to the jail also, but did not get in. The old man has not been found, but will undoubtedly be hung if he is found. The old woman was put in jail.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, March 18, 1891

 

John L. Wigginton, a suspect of the murder of Wm. Ferguson and B. C. Watts, who was released on examining trial, but whose guilt is clearly established by the later confessions of Mrs. Wigginton and Charley, as printed on the sixth page of this paper was arrested Tuesday night, on Indian Creek, in Menifee county by Samuel Rothwell and yesterday noon was placed in jail in this city. If he planned and advised the murder, as his wife and son say he did, he is the worst one among them, and the law cannot break his neck too quick.     Sentinel—Democrat

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, March 25, 1891

 

A dispatch from Mt. Sterling says a mob went to the jail at that place for the purpose of lynching the Wiggintons, who are confined there for the murder of J. W. Ferguson and B. C. Watts. The jail was strongly guarded and the jailer announced his intention of defending the prisoners to the last extremity. The mayor and others made speeches to the mob counseling moderation, and the crowd finally dispersed without attempting an assault on the building. I t is not thought any further effort will be made as the jail is a strong one and could only be taken with much loss to the assaulting party

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, March 27, 1891

 

Since the arrest and incarceration of John L. Wigginton, no further developments are known in the poisoning case. The old man sticks to it that they are all innocent, and that the confessions that were made by those who did confess were untrue, and extorted by intimidation and threats. The boys have stopped talking since “daddy” came back to jail. Sentinel-Democrat

In the Mt. Sterling Circuit Court Monday, John Frank and Charlie Wigginton were found guilty of the murder of Wm. Ferguson and Brack Watts, and were sent to the penitentiary for life. So much excitement existed that a jury had to be obtained from Bath county.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, June 3, 1891

 

JUDGE COOPER overruled the motion for a new trial in the case of the Wiggintons, who were sentenced to the penitentiary for life for the murder of William Ferguson and Brack Watts, and the case will now be taken to the court of appeals.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, June 17, 1891.

 

THE Court of Appeals has reversed the decision of the Circuit Court in the case of the Wiggintons, who were sentenced to the penitentiary for life at Mt. Sterling for poisoning Messrs., Ferguson and Watts at Grassy Lick. Much indignation was felt at the time because the death penalty was not inflicted, and perhaps full justice will be done when the case come up for trial again.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, October 7, 1891.

 

THE statement that the Court of appeal had reversed the decision of the Montgomery Circuit Court in the case of the Wiggintons who were sent up for poisoning the Fergusons and Watts family proved to be premature. The papers have been submitted but the Court has made no decision.

The Democrat, Wednesday, October 7, 1891.

 

THE famous Wigginton cases from Montgomery county were decided Wednesday in the Court of Appeals.   In the Circuit Court they were sentenced to the penitentiary for life for poisoning Messers, Brack Watts and William Ferguson and other members of the family and the sentence was affirmed by the higher court. Some time ago it was rumored that this decision would be reversed and the bowl of indignation with which the information was received showed that the people of that section were in no mood to be trifled with.

The Democrat, Wednesday, December 2, 1891.

 

IN the Court of Appeals Saturday the Wigginton’s of Mt. Sterling under sentence of imprisonment for life for poisoning Messers, Watts and Ferguson, and whose sentences was affirmed a short time ago, were granted sixty days to file a petition for a new rehearing.

He went to Missouri and by leasing thousands of acres of bluegrass land in that State and Iowa, he succeeded in cornering the market for Blue Grass Seed, and when the price rose he made a fortune. He was ever afterward known in Missouri as the “Blue Grass King.”The Winchester Democrat   Fri., March 30, 1906

Fields, Jesse Jesse Fields DeadJesse Fields was shot Tuesday near Jackson by Moses Feltner, and died from the effects of the wound Thursday. Fields had loaned Feltner $120 and the difficulty arose over his trying to collect it. He was one of the worst men in the mountains and was one of the principals in the French-Eversole feud. He was tried for murder of Judge Combs, of Hazard, a few years ago and at the time of his death he was under indictment for a murder near Jackson recently.The Winchester Democrat   Tue., May 1, 1900

Murderer Caught

Moses Feltner, who killed Jesse Fields at Jackson a few months ago was caught Friday in Knott county.   Gov. Beckham had offered $300 reward for his capture.

The Winchester Democrat   Tue., June 26, 1900

 

Murder Case Continued

The case against Mose Feltner for the murder of Jesse Fields, and against Farmer Gilbert for murdering a woman and child, were called in the Breathitt Circuit Court and continued. As both these distinguished gentlemen are guests of Jailer Boone, they could not be at Jackson this term of court.

The Winchester Democrat   Tue., Nov. 20, 1900

 

Some Remarkable Statements.

Some time ago Moses Feltner killed Jesse Fields in Breathitt county, and is now on bail awaiting trial. His attorney is Jas. B. Marcum, the well known lawyer and Republican leader. Circuit Court now being in session at Jackson, both Marcum and Feltner have filed affidavit for a continuance of the case and these affidavits, and especially that of Feltner, contain some very startling statements. Feltner swears that County Judge James Hargis and Sheriff Ed Callahan conspired with him to kill Marcum; that he, Feltner was to decoy Marcum from his house to a point where had been hid a shotgun loaded with buckshot and which was to be used to kill Marcum; that several other plans were laid all of which were told Marcum by Feltner; that Hargis, Callahan and others finally suspected and the latter had to leave Jackson for fear of being killed. As pay for killing Marcum, Feltner was to be pardoned for his crimes. He also says he heard both Hargis and Callahan say that the killing of Dr. Cox was a good thing and that they were glad he was killed. In conclusion both Marcum and Feltner say they are afraid to come to Jackson for fear they will be killed.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, November 14, 1902.

 

Surrendered to Sheriff McCord.

Moses Feltner under indictment for the killing of Jesse Fields in Breathitt county some years ago, arrived here last Friday in company with Sheriff Morgan, of Leslie county, and surrendered to Sheriff McCord, who had a bench warrant for him. Shortly afterward Feltner gave bond and was released.

Soon after the killing of Fields Feltner was tried and sentenced to the penitentiary for seven years. The higher court reversed the decision and Feltner was released on $5,000 bond. Owing to the inability of his attorney, J. B. Marcum, to defend him in the Breathitt Circuit Court at the term for which the trial was set Feltner did not appear and the bond was forfeited. Feltner spent some time out west, but recently has been living in Leslie county, Ky. He says, with a fair trial, he will be acquitted of the charge which he is under.

Breathitt County.

The More You Hear the Worse It Gets.—Mose Feltner and Sam Fields Now Giving Depositions in this City.—What Next.

The name of Breathitt county is so significant of wrong doing that nothing else is thought of when the name is mentioned and there are certain names that come readily to mind at the name of Breathitt. We will keep our readers informed as best we can of Breathitt’s doings.

Following the action of the higher court at Frankfort granting a temporary stay of proceedings against the Breathitt county gentlemen indicted in Fayette county. Col. John R. Allen, attorney for the Fayette court, filed a motion and the Court of Appeals issued an order for James W. Edwards, Magistrate of Breathitt county, to appear before it tomorrow, February 10th, and produce all records, warrants, bonds, memoranda, etc., in the Hargis-Callahan cases. It is the purpose of Col. Allen to show that they are forgeries; that Edwards was in collusion with the Hargises and did not act in good faith.

On the rules issued by the Clark court, Sheriff McCord and Deputy Stokely went to Perry county last week and arrested Mose Feltner and Sam Fields. These are two of the witnesses that are alleged to have been spirited away from here during the Marcum damage trial. They were brought before the Court Saturday morning and failing to give bond they were placed in charge of officer Dock Pigg.

Senator Hargis came down from Jackson Saturday afternoon and gave bond in the sum of $2,000 for an appearance. The rule and warrants of arrest for Judge Hargis and Sheriff Ed. Callahan were sent to Jackson. They will be served by Coroner M. C. Bailey. Mr. Bailey executed the bonds and returned them to the Sheriff of this county yesterday. James Hargis, in the sum of $1,000, signed by A. P. Crawford, Steven Cundiff, W. H. Blanton and Jacob E. Lane. Ed. Callahan’s bond for $4,000 was signed by the same parties.

For satisfactory reasons, the depositions of Mose Feltner and Sam Fields have been taken; that of Feltner, occupying the day Tuesday, and until late yesterday afternoon.

A letter was given to Feltner since he has been a prisoner here in which dire consequences were threatened in case he gave his deposition. He denies being in contempt saying he left the state through fear. Feltner says that he had been employed to kill Marcum and implicates Alex. Hargis, Jim Hargis, Ed Callahan, and B. F. French. He implicates the first three in the killing of Cockrill. His reward for killing Marcum was to be an acquittal on the charge of killing Jesse Fields, who was one of French’s lieutenants in the French-Eversole feud or, if convicted, a pardon would be obtained for him. If, on the other hand, he refused to carry out the orders, he would be sentenced and hanged. The deposition of Sam Fields will be taken in connection with that of Feltner.

The Sun-Sentinel, Thursday, February 9, 1905

 

The Feltner Case.

The trial of Mose Feltner, charges with the murder of Jesse fields in Breathitt county was entered into in the Estill Circuit court Tuesday. The case had been transferred from Breathitt county.

The original indictment was quashed and a new one made by the Estill county grand jury.

The Commonwealth is represented by James K. Adams, Will Young and T. T. Cope, while Feltner is represented by J. B. White and Hugh Riddle of Irvine and B. R. Jouett, of this city.

It is charged by Feltner that the indictment held over him in Breathitt county for the murder of Fields was partially destroyed by one of the defendants in the Marcum-Hargis damage suit as an inducement for him to leave the State and not testify in that case.

Feltner says that the indictment was mutilated by Jim Hargis in the presence of his cousin, Felix B. Feltner, who was acting as the go-between, and the fact that the Commonwealth’s Attorney asked that the indictment be quashed and referred to the present grand jury is evidence for the statement.

Later.—The Feltner case was continued until the next term. Bond for $5,000 was signed by A. B. Eversole, of London, Ky.

The pool is fifteen or twenty feet in depth and he was drowned in a short time.   After an hour’s hard work the body was recovered but it had been too long in the water for resuscitation. Coroner Wills held an inquest without a jury, but elicited no facts further than those mentioned. The little fellow was a great favorite with every body.

Davidson were given an examining trial on the charge of murdering William Fields and were acquitted. The witnesses for the prosecution developed that Fields had called on Miss Davidson, but had concealed from her the fact that he had a wife. Her father and brother ordered Fields to keep away from the house. He swore that he would see the girl anyway, and arming himself with a large Colt went to the Davidson residence. Soon after five shots were heard, and Fields emerged with his weapon, which he was reloading, when a shot rang out from the house and he fell dead. On this evidence the discharge of the prisoners was asked and granted.

Next morning Finley awoke and feeling a peculiar sensation in his feet investigated them to find that the rats had eaten off his toes and part of the foot. He was unable to walk and his cries finally bringing assistance, he was taken home and physicians sent for. They did all in their power, but lockjaw set in and he died in great agony.The Winchester Democrat, Friday, December 13, 1895

Finnell, John W. Gen. John W. Finnell, a prominent politician and Republican leader of this State died Wednesday at Helena, Montana of pneumonia, aged 66 years. Gen. Finnell was a native of this city, his father being editor of a Whig paper here. His mother was a Miss Riley, of this city. John learned the printer’s trade in this office but soon relinquished it for the study of law which he pursued here under Gen. John B. Huston and afterward with the celebrated Richard Menefee. He soon took a front rank in politics and elected to the Legislature from Nicholas county before attaining the legal age. In 1861 he represented Kenton county in that body being elected as a Union man. He was Secretary of State under Governors Crittenden and Helm, and Adjutant-General under Gov. Magotlin, where he distinguished himself by the energy with which he organized the army which Kentucky furnished in aid of the Federal cause. He was afterward Register in Bankruptcy and President of the Missouri Valley Life Insurance Company. He achieved considerable fame as journalist in which field he labored for many years.   He was a constant contributor to the Lexington Reporter, while that paper was in the hands of his father.   He was afterward editor of the Frankfort Commonwealth and still later, of the Louisville Commercial. When the Louisville Republican was started as the organ of that party during the last gubernatorial campaign, Gen. Finnell was chosen as editor in-chief. His “Jeems Giles” letters display a fund of genial humor rarely excelled. He was a kind, generous man, a typical Kentuckian and will be sincerely mourned.The Winchester Democrat     Wed., 2-1-1888
Finnell, Jones Death has again invaded the home of Mr. and Mrs. Fountain Finnell at Walnut Hill, and taken little Jones, their seven-year-old son. He was attacked Thursday with malignant typhoid fever or diphtheria and died Saturday. His death came to the family as a great shock, it being so sudden and so unexpected.   The remains were interred in the family burying ground on the following Monday at Owens Chapel.Sleep, little Jones, sleep,Narrow thy bed, and deep,Hunger, nor thirst, nor cruel pain,

E’er can hurt thee again.

In Memorial.

In memory of little Jones Finnell who departed this life October 4th, 1902. It has been but a short time since this idolized, fair little child turned his pure young face from his loved ones and died. He was bright, beautiful the idol of all who knew him; the indulged pet of his parents and kindred; the sweet playmate of his brothers and sisters; the fairest bud that ever unfolded a few, only a few of its spotless leaves. How hard it was to part with little Jones, only God knew. Our tears, prayers and petitions did not stay our Father’s call. He knew how much we loved him, but He loved him best of all. A mother mourns thy loss little one; a father too, though in affliction sore. Thy little feet shall ever lead the way and finally bring them to that golden shore.     A Friend.

Fish, Hamilton                     AA A Winchester Boy at Santiago.“Smoked Yankees” was the name given to the colored troopers who fought so gallantly at Santiago.Winchester had seven representatives in the ranks of these heroes—Jas. Rogers, Sam Wheeler, Jack Bell and James Watts, of the Ninth Cavalry, and Thompson Morton Berry, George Taylor and William Jackson, of the Tenth. James Watts is said to have been killed and Berry and Jackson were wounded in storming San Juan hill. Our reporter last week interviewed Berry, who has been at home several weeks on a sick leave. He is just twenty-one years of age and quite an intelligent negro. He graduated at our colored public school with the highest honors and took a medal last year. He was also awarded the medal at an oratorical contest in Richmond in 1897. He taught school five months at Ruckerville and in February joined the Tenth United States Cavalry (regulars) at Cincinnati and was sent to Fort Reboe in Montana where he stayed until April 19th, when his regiment was sent to Chickamauga where it remained one month. It was then ordered to Lakeland, Florida, where it stayed until June 12th, when it embarked at Tampa on board the Leona for Cuba. After a week’s voyage the fleet reached Baiquiri, about eighteen miles East of Santiago, and landing June 22nd, went into camp about one and one half miles from the seashore. Breaking camp the next evening, it marched nearly to Siboney. Resting a few hours, the regiment ate an early breakfast and moving forward was joined by the First Cavalry and the Rough Riders and a part of the Twenty-Third Infantry, making a force of about one thousand men. Early that morning (June 24th occurred the fight at La Guasima, where young Hamilton Fish was killed and the Rough Riders were rescued from their perilous position by the charge of the Tenth Cavalry (colored). Berry’s company, in this struggle, had one man killed and seven wounded. The Spaniards had 1,500 men engaged behind trenches and supported by two machine guns from Cervera’s fleet. The fight lasted about two and a half hours in a rough, hilly country and under a blazing red hot sun. The regiment rested just beyond the battle field until the night of the 30th, when it took position for the movement on San Juan which began next morning. The roads were narrow and horrible although the engineer corps had improved them considerably. The soldiers carried their rations of bacon, hardtack and coffee and also their ammunition. There were a number of small streams from a foot to a foot and a half deep before they reached San Juan river, which ran at the foot of the hill on which the fort to be stormed was located. The river was up to the arm pits of the shorter men and had to be waded. Berry’s regiment marched behind a battery of artillery the night of the 30th and was in line of battle at about nine o’clock a. m., after having crossed the river. The artillery was posted behind the infantry, which encountered a storm of shells and rifle balls. Berry’s company had sixty men in line, three yards apart. There were no barbed wire cutters on the first day and the soldiers had to break the wires with the butts of their muskets. On the 2nd day, certain men were detailed with proper implements to cut the wires which were a serious obstacle. The battle   raged from nine in the morning until 4:45 p. m. Berry received a flesh wound in the hip about 1:30 p. m., as he went up the hill, but kept his place in the ranks. About 2:30 p. m., a man in company G, of the Tenth, was badly wounded, and Berry had taken him in his arms to help him to where he could be cared for, when a bullet struck the wounded soldier in the forehead, killing him instantly and spattering his blood and brains over Berry’s hat and clothes. At half-past four, just as his command was rushing on the fort and victory was assured Berry was shot in the foot and, with a little aid, hobbled back to where the ambulance corps took charge of him and carried him to the rear. He left for Port Tampa on the 5th of July on board the Cherokee, which by mistake was fired on by gun boats during the voyage. He was sent to Fort McPherson, Ga., but on the way his train was wrecked. He was in a hospital there about a month and was then sent to Washington where he remained in barracks nursing his wounds until he was allowed to come home, reaching here August 24th. He speaks in the highest terms of General Wheeler’s courage and kindness. During the battle, he went among the men and would tell them to lie down and keep under cover as well as they could. When the soldiers would call to him to lie down too, he would say, “Never mind me, boys. Take care of yourselves.” Berry says his Captain, Watson, behaved very gallantly, and is much beloved by his men. All the commissioned officers of the Tenth Cavalry are white, and many of them from the South. Mr. Whitehead, who married Miss Louise Eginton, of this place, is a Lieutenant in this regiment. He is a Texan, and behaved with great courage in the fighting before Santiago. He was wounded slightly. Berry has had malarial fever since he came home but is not recovering rapidly. He saw Gen. Shafter lying in his tent on a cot, as he went to the rear after being wounded. Berry says that the country where the army operated around Santiago is hilly, but looked as if the soil might be rich and productive. It is covered with thick brush, and is afflicted with the cactus, which puts out myriads of sharp needles. Berry does not think the climate is much warmer than ours. He saw and felt many of the land crabs. Berry heard the guns of the fleets when Cervera’s ships were destroyed. He will report for duty at Fort Thomas on the 23rd, and may be again sent to Cuba with his regiment to do garrison duty.The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, October 11, 1898

Fishback, Edward Fatal AccidentEdward Fishback, of Pine Grove, meets a tragic death Thursday while hunting dovesRelatives and friends in this city were shocked Thursday evening at the intelligence that young Edward Fishback, of Pine Grove, had been accidentally killed while hunting doves. It seems the young man, accompanied by his brother, Rutherford and companion, Bathurst Woodford, had been out hunting and were returning home. While on the farm of Mrs. Alice Woodford he went through a fence and drew his gun after him. The trigger caught and the gun was discharged, the contents entering his left side. His horrified companions carried him to his father’s home, only a short distance away and medical aid summoned at once from Lexington by automobile, but the wound was fatal and the young man died about an hour later. He is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Fishback, of Pine Grove, and besides his parents is survived by five brothers and one sister, Messrs. Davis, James, Rutherford, Frederick, and Dr. Robert Fishback, and Miss Ella Fishback. The family have many relatives and friends here, who deeply sympathize with them in the tragic death of their dear son and brother. The funeral was held at the family residence near Pine Grove, Saturday afternoon, and the burial was in the family lot in the Lexington cemetery.The Winchester Democrat   Tuesday, September 1, 1908

Fishback, Mrs. James Died at the home of her sister, Mrs. James Fishback, near Pine Grove.Circuit Court is in session at Stanton this week, Judge Lilly presiding. Among the cases to be tried are two murder cases that have attracted much attention. The first is the trial of Jake Bush for the murder of his young wife, who was a Miss Rogers, from near Athens. the couple occupied upper rooms at Clay City, and early one morning last spring the occupants of the lower parts of the house heard a pistol shot and on rushing up stairs, Mrs. Bush was found with a bullet in her brain and her infant son in her arms. Her husband tried to make it appear that she had taken her life with her own hands and a pistol was found on the bed, but the nature of the wound showed that he fired the fatal shot. He was arrested at once and a determined effort made to lynch him, but he was hustled off to jail at Stanton before the lynching was effected. Jealousy was probably the motive of the crime. He will be ably defended by Col. Tucker of this city.The Semi-Weekly Sun   7-30-1890

Fisher, Ed Terrible Feud Outbreak.Five Men Reported Killed in Clay county Ky.—War Between the Philpot and Morris Factions.Louisville, Ky., July 18.—A special from London, Ky., tells of a report reaching here of the outbreak of another feud in Clay county by which five men lost their lives Monday.The dead are said to be: Robert Philpot, Ed Fisher, Aaron Morris, Jim Griffin and Hugh Griffin.

These fatalities resulted from a pitched battle fought near Little Goose creek, three miles of Manchester.

The feud dates back nearly two years. On Christmas, 1897, James Philpot was killed by Aaron Morris, but before he died he shot and killed Wm. Bundy, a friend of Morris. The Morris and Griffins were closely affiliated. Since then the feuding between the two factions has been very bitter, and it has been aroused recently by the White-Baker hostilities.

The Philpots, who are the strongest faction in the mountain numbering about 750 voters, openly espoused the cause of the Bakers, White, the Griffins took sides with the Whites. The story that reaches here from Manchester is to the effect that Bob Philpot was arrested Monday morning by Deputy Sheriff Wash Thacker. While very circumstantial, in other respects the report does not show clearly the origin of the trouble nor give the reason for Philpot’s arrest.

It is said that while Thacker was taking Philpot’s bond, the latter was shot from behind by a member of a crowd that had gathered. This precipitated a general fight with Winchesters and revolvers, which was participated in by George, Granville, Robert and Peter Philpot and Ed Fisher on one side and Aaron Morris, Hugh, Jim and Green Griffin on the other.

The battle began about 9 o’clock and raged fiercely for ten or fifteen minutes. When it was over it was found that the five men mentioned above had been killed outright, three of the belligerents were seriously wounded, while Pete Philpot was the only one on either side to escape injury. Granville Philpot is said to be one of the most seriously wounded. He is a union veteran having lost a leg at Stone river. He is an ex-member of the Kentucky legislature and is said to have killed three or four men.

Ed Fisher, who is reported dead, was another man with several nicks in his cane. He was but 23 years old but was said to have killed three men. The story of this battle caused consternation here notwithstanding the fact that serious trouble has been expected to break out among the mountaineers of Clay county ever since the assassination of Tom Baker several weeks ago. An effort was at once begun to secure deputies to go to the seat of the trouble and attempt to restore quiet, but up to a late hour in the afternoon there had not been enough responses to make up a force that would command respect. The situation at Manchester is deplorable. Since morning the place has been in a state of terror, scarcely anyone daring to venture out of doors. Business is suspended and the residents are momentarily expecting a renewal of hostilities.

The entire county of Clay is filled with men mounted and armed. Other battles may occur at any moment.

A relative of the Philpots has just left here to join his family and swears vengeance.

London Depot, Ky., July 18.—Clay county has another killing for its annals. Dick Lovens’ body has been found three miles from Manchester. He was beaten to death in the night. When found his head was severed from his body and had been beaten to a pulp.

A 45-calibre revolver was found on the body. Having killed three men and injured several, he was probably killed by the friends on one of his victims. He leaves a widow and eight children.

An attempt has been made to kill Will Gray, near Manchester, Clay county. After three shots had passed through his clothes, one of them scraping his body, he escaped by running through a forest. Gray is one of the Baker’s friends.

Dr. Fitch had been a sufferer from Bronchitis for many years and ulceration of the throat had been superinduced by this disease. The immediate cause of his death was hemorrhage.

His learning extended to every branch of human knowledge.

He was an entertaining contributor, both to religious and secular newspapers, and his writings took a wide range. His letters to the Sun-Sentinel on travel, politics, social and economic questions were highly prized contributions and his trenchant pen will be greatly missed. The funeral took place from the Methodist church at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon. Dr. W.F. Taylor presiding Elder of the Covington district, conducted the services , assisted by a Rev. O.T. Chandler. The interment took place in the Winchester cemetery. He had been twice married. He is survived by his wife, four sons and one daughter. The children are: Mrs. T.W. Watts, Millersburg; R.O.

In Self-Defense.

The Killing of William Fitzgerald By Godfrey Hunter, Jr.

Louisville, Ky., Dec. 8.—In a letter received from James G. Bailey, secretary of the United States legation in Guatemala, by W. A. Hunter, of this city, son of Minister Godfrey Hunter, the statement is made that Godfrey Hunter, Jr., who shot William Fitzgerald in Guatemala several weeks ago, fired the shots in self-defense after his face had been slapped. Mr. Bailey states further that Fitzgerald snapped a pistol in Hunter’s face, precipitating the tragedy. The letter declares that Fitzgerald attacked Hunter while the latter was sitting quietly in the plaza not looking for any danger or trouble. The letter is dated November 21.

Montgomery; It seems strange but up to date it has been impossible to find out who killed John Fitzpatrick. The killing occurred at a country dance, in a crowded house, but no one can be found who saw the shot fired. Two men named Tipton and three named Kincaid have been arrested but all were discharged as there was little or no proof against them.

Flanagan, George W. A Sad DeathOur people were shocked by a telegram received Sunday morning that George W. Flanagan had died that morning at Montgomery, Alabama.

He became ill and was taken to the hospital at Montgomery, Alabama, where after a week’s illness he died. His father, Judge Jas. Flanagan was there and reached here yesterday at noon with the remains, which will be buried at ten o’clock this morning in the Winchester cemetery under the auspices of Winchester Lodge of Elks, of which he was a member.The deceased was a high spirited, generous, big-hearted young man, always ready to help a friend, and whose hand was always open to relieve the distressed.To his venerable father, who is thus left childless and alone, we tender our sympathy in common with hundreds of friends here and elsewhere.

Words of Sympathy.

Louisville, Ky., Feb. 26, 1902.

Judge James Flanagan—My Dear Old Friend:

It pains me to know that you have recently lost your son. Such occurrences open anew the wounds inflicted upon my heart by the death of my boy in 1892. Having gone through   with the indescribable anguish that you now endure, I am fully prepared not only to know your suffering but to sympathize with you as others not similarly situated cannot do. In such an hour, I know full well that nothing can remove the pall of grief, but a kind word from a friend may penetrate it, as a sunbeam, and throw a ray of light upon a darkened life. We cannot resist the feeling that we are not separated forever from our departed loved ones. Surely, there must be another clime in the great beyond, where we shall renew the friendships and affections experienced in this world, and where those we have loved and who have loved us will abide with us forever.

Be assured my dear old friend, that my heart bleeds for you and that my tears shall blend with yours over the grave of your dead son. Sincerely,

W. O. Bradley.

Nashville, Tenn., Feb. 23, 1902.

Judge James Flanagan, Winchester, Ky.—My Dear and Honored Friend:

A marked copy of a Winchester paper has brought us the sad intelligence of the death of your son. I beg to assure you of deep sympathy. I have sweet recollections of your home as it was more than twenty years ago, when Sister Flanagan presided over it with unaffected cordially and grace. George was then a hale and hearty lad and your pride. You have been left alone in the evening, as Longfellow said of himself when all of his companions had departed, to cover up the coals; and you too will soon slip away and be at rest. Until the final moment when the flickering candle shall die down in the socket, may the gentle Christ sit with you and cheer your heart with the vision of the home above. With prayers for your comfort and peace, I am yours faithfully. Gilby C. Kelly.

Sorrow and Pleasure.

In sorrow we remember our brothers that have gone over the river; with pleasure we do honor to their memory. The Elk’s memorial Services at the Opera House Sunday afternoon combined the two-sorrow and pleasure. The departed brothers in whose memory the services were held were, J. Edward Mitchell, Rodney Haggard, George W. Flanagan and N. V. Prewitt.   The program as printed in last week’s paper was followed. The singing by the Winchester Choral Society was fine indeed. “Jesus Lover of My Soul,” by Miss Elizabeth Robinson, Mrs. Savage and Messrs. Hodgkin and Wentworth was equal to the very best.   The Solo by Mrs. Savage was especially pleasing. The address was delivered by Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge. It was the best, because it was the last we have heard him make.   It is sad to think that in not so many years Breckinridge will be heard no more. He is a young man for his age of 66, and while we trust there are many more years of brightness and usefulness left to him, we realize that when he is gone there will be a vacancy that cannot be filled. After the service the Elks, with Col. Breckinridge, repaired to the Club Room where an hour was spent in cordial greetings.   Col. Breckinridge kindly gave his autograph to the large number that asked for it.

The Sun-Sentinel, Thursday, December 10, 1903.

Flanagan, James Judge James Flanagan.[W. H. Polk in Lexington Herald]Among the many prominent men produced by Clark county in the last century, none are better known or more highly esteemed than Judge James Flanagan. Born on September 28, 1820, he will soon be eighty-five years of age. And yet notwithstanding his accumulated years, he is as erect as a young man, his actions alert and vigorous and his eyesight so little affected by time that he reads without glasses. His excellent preservation is no doubt due to calm and even tenor which has characterized his life, backed by an excellent constitution. Always alert, both bodily and mentally, but never wrought up into excitement, the years have drifted behind him with little effect upon him physically. The snows of winter have fallen on his locks, but his eye is as clear and piercing as it ever was.Judge Flanagan is a splendid specimen of the old-school Kentucky gentleman. Dignified, polite and kindly in his intercourse with men, knightly as the knightliest in the company of ladies, he is universally respected and beloved by every one who knows him, both at home and abroad. Few men are better known all over Kentucky; few have as many and as warm friends. The span of his life has covered the greater part of the period of his county’s existence. He was the contemporary of Samuel Hanson, Governor Clark, John B. Huston, Chilton Allen, Charles Eginton, Tucker Simpson, Downy and many others of Clark county’s distinguished sons. As a lawyer he met them on the forum and the stump and in every relation bore himself with that dignity and urbanity which have been salient points of his character. And standing yet among the ranks of men—like a sturdy oak in a forest that awaits final prostration—he awaits philosophically and calmly for that summons which comes sooner or later to all. Long since retired from practice or active business, he yet takes a deep interest in all the current transactions of the world. Something of the life and ancestry of such a man, therefore, will be read with interest by all, especially those who enjoy the boon of his acquaintance.

Judge Flanagan’s Ancestors.

The grandfather of Judge Flanagan was Hugh Flanagan, who was born in the county of Down, in Ireland, in 1721, and died in Frederick county, Maryland, in 1818 aged ninety-seven years. Hugh Flanagan was a Catholic in religion. When forty-five years of age he married Mary Kelly, by whom he had seven sons and three daughters. With his wife he emigrated to Maryland, locating on what was called the “Western Shores,” where all the Catholic emigrants into Lord Baltimore’s colony settled, the Protestants fixing themselves across Chesapeake Bay on what was called “Eastern Shore.”

The sons of Hugh Flanagan were: James, Malachi, John, Francis, Hugh, Jr., Charles and Peter. The daughters were Catherine, Mary and Eliza. Peter, the father of Judge Flanagan, was the fourth son. He was born May 15, 1773 and died July 16, 1842 in Clark county. His wife was Ruth Warrick, of Bryan’s Station, Fayette county, a sister of the brave Capt. Jacob Warrick, who fell at Tippecanoe in 1811.

Of Hugh Flanagan’s other sons, James and John came to Kentucky in 1795. Peter came two years later, in 1897, and settled at Winchester, then consisting of but a few log huts. John and James located four hundred acres each, part of their farms including what are now suburban portions of the town. These three brothers—James, John and Peter married three sisters of Capt. Warrick. James married Margaret, John married Eleanor and Peter married Ruth, as stated.

The children of Peter Flanagan were Eliza, born 1804, died in infancy; William born March 2, 1805, died September 11, 1851. He married Laura Laughlin.

Dr. George, born April 17, 1807, died September 9, 1836.

Catherine, born August 11, 1809, died January 25, 1848. She married John Whitehead and died in Winchester.

Judge Flanagan’s Marriage.

Judge James Flanagan, born September 28, 1820, the subject of this sketch, married on January 4, 1860, Miss Susan Wilson, of Montgomery county, a niece of United States Senator Garrett Davis. She died October 31, 1890. She was a woman of exalted merits and lovely character. Beloved by all who knew her, and when death called her away from the side of him who had so long trod with her the path of life was a terrible blow, from which he never recovered.

Mary, the sixth and last child of Peter Flanagan, was born October 2, 1824, and in 1846 was married to Charles Poston, of Clark county.

But two children were born to Judge Flanagan and wife; George a son and a daughter, the latter dying in infancy. George grew to manhood and was a young man of uncommonly handsome person and wonderful brightness of mind. The only child, he was the idol of his parents and beloved by all who knew him, and when death took away the wife and mother, the father clung all the more tenderly to his boy.

George was born on May 16, 1862, during the civil war, and died January 26, 1902, at Montgomery, Ala. After a good education in the schools of Winchester he attended the Kentucky Military Institute at Frankfort, displaying remarkable efficiency in his studies. After completing his studies he entered the mercantile business at Winchester, where he remained some years, later going on the road as a traveling salesman for a wholesale house. While so employed in the South he fell ill and died. With anguished heart the stricken father repaired to his bedside and bore back to Kentucky the last prop of his life and affection, and laid him to rest beside his mother. The blow was a sad one to the devoted father, whose life all seemed bound up in the handsome promising boy.

Judge Flanagan’s Public Life.

Judge Flanagan received a good education in Winchester Academy in the ordinary branches of learning and upon quitting school commenced clerking in a dry goods store kept by Simpson & Whitehead. He remained there seven years and then accepted the position of deputy postmaster under his brother William. The office was kept in the Flanagan Hotel. He next read law under John B. Huston, was admitted to the bar in 1857 and practiced actively until 1895, a period of nearly forty years, accumulating a comfortable competence. His contemporaries at the bar were Huston, the Hansons—Roger and Charles—Simpson, Eginton, Bush, Allen, Tucker, Downy and others.

In 1857 Judge Flanagan was chosen as a magistrate under the new constitution. He was also City Attorney for eight years, and twice county Attorney, serving eight years. In 1856 he embarked in journalism and for two years was editor of the Winchester Chronicle, a Whig paper, which he sold to Parrish & Gruelle, who changed the name to The Clark County Democrat, its present title. In 1865 Judge Flanagan was appointed United States District Assessor of Clark county, but he declined the office. In November, 1894, he was elected a member of the lower house of the Kentucky Legislature to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge W. M. Beckner.

Judge Flanagan has for many years been a consistent member of the Methodist Church, also a prominent member of the Odd Fellows. He is now the oldest surviving member of the Hickman Lodge No. 72, I. O. O. F. In 1883, without solicitation, he was appointed by Governor Blackburn Circuit Judge of the Ashland district, to fill out the unexpired term of Judge Ben F. Buckner, who had resigned. Judge Flanagan served in this capacity with great credit, but declined to make the race for the position at the next regular election, preferring the quiet happiness of home to the labors of the circuit. He was free from that grasping ambition which moves so many men to strenuously cling to office.

A Remarkable Memory.

Judge Flanagan is a walking encyclopedia of history, national, State and county. His memory is clear and distinct in regard to all the transactions that have taken place and the people whom he has known since his early childhood. To the writer he said:

“We had two regiments of militia in Clark county in early days. Several companies were sent from here to the front in 1812 and they were in the battle of the Thames. These companies belonged to the regiment of Col. John Donaldson, and were commanded by Captains Combs and Cunningham. Combs’ company was picked from the rank and file of the 17th regiment and Cunningham’s from the 36th regiment. Capt. Joseph Clark’s company was recruited from the 36th mostly and was in Dudley’s defeat (Fort Meigs), every commissioned officer being killed. Capt. Clark was mortally wounded on the field. The late Leonard Bell, then but sixteen, was in that company and had to run the gauntlet. One of the two companies commanded by Col. John Martin was in the “battle of the Raisin.”

A Boone Incident.

Judge Flanagan also told an anecdote about Daniel Boone. “One of Daniel Boone’s daughters married a Scholl, who founded Schollsville in this county. They had a son, Septimus Scholl, whom I knew as a boy, and who later moved to Jackson county, Missouri, after he was sixty years of age. Another daughter of Boone’s married Nathaniel Gore, of Clark county, who afterwards moved to Estill, where his descendants still live.

“Daniel Boone came to this place in 1798 to visit the Gores at Schollsville, before emigrating to Missouri. He came to Winchester with Septimus, who was then a small lad. Before leaving home the mother of Septimus gave him 75 cents, telling him to bring her a pound of coffee for it. The sights of the village so engrossed the attention of Septimus that he forgot to make the purchase and when about a mile from town on the Red river road, returning home with his grandfather, Daniel Boone, the latter asked: “Did you get the coffee your mother told you to buy?”

“In reply Septimus said, “Oh Grandfather, I clear forgot it.”

“Then, said Daniel, run back and get it and I will lie down here on the grass until you return.”

“Septimus hurried back, purchased the coffee and soon rejoined his grandfather, when they continued on to the Scholl house.”

In conclusion Judge Flanagan said: “Boone had 500 acres of land on Jouett’s creek, in the west part of Clark or “The Neck” not far from Athens. He sold it for a song, He also had 1,000 acres near Schollsville, but lost it through proof of a prior claim.”

Other Sons of Peter Flanagan.

Dr. George Flanagan was a man of rare genius. He attended lectures at Transylvania Medical College under Drs. Dudley Caldwell and other distinguished disciples of Esculapius whose learning and deeds helped to wreath a halo of glory around old Transylvania. After graduation he emigrated to Lawrenceville, Ill., where he practiced medicine for four years. He also served as surgeon of Illinois troops in the Black Hawk was in which Abraham Lincoln commanded a company of militia. Returning to Kentucky, he practiced awhile in Clark county and then removed to Chicot, Arkansas, where he died in 1836.

First Mill at Winchester.

James Flanagan, eldest son of Peter Flanagan, built a horse mill at Winchester in the year 1800. It was the first mill in the village and did all the grinding for the people of Winchester and immediate vicinity. Before its erection the people had to go some distance from their homes, to the water mills of Hornbeck, on Strode’s creek, Judy’s and Brandenburg’s, on Stoner, and Owens’ on Four Mile Creek. James was an enterprising young man, and it was not long until all the Winchester grist was his.

The Hornbecks.

Judge Flanagan, as a boy, knew Hornbeck, owner of the mill on Strode’s Creek, which was built about 1785. They had settled on Strode’s in 1780.The elder Hornbeck was owner of the mill. His brother had several pretty, bare-footed daughters. In those days, it may be remarked, great numbers of the women and girls went barefooted in the spring and summer, for shoes were not as plentiful then, nor as easy to get, as they are now. The elder Hornbeck was a Pennsylvania Dutchman and spoke very broken English. He had several sons and two grandsons named William and Anthony. The latter was a wagoner. His brother William, a wild, rollicking fellow, died in the Bourbon county poor house. In the same room was lying Fount Hunter, and just before their deaths, which occurred about the same time, they lay in opposite beds cursing each other.

William Flanagan.

Another son of Peter was William Flanagan, who was twice appointed postmaster of Winchester. The office there was established in 1792, the year that Kentucky entered the Union. The first Postmaster was Edmund Calloway, who also kept a tavern where John Key’s store now stands. The building was burned in 1818. Calloway later moved to Russellville, Ky., and died there. He was succeeded in 1810 by Mordecai Gist. In 1842 William Flanagan was appointed postmaster. He had graduated at West Point, in the same class with Bishop and Lieut. Gen. Leonidas Polk, Confederate army, killed in 1864 at Pine Mountain, Ga. After graduation William was appointed First Lieutenant in the regular army. For twenty-five years, after leaving the army, he was County Surveyor of Clark, and was noted for his wonderful proficiency in mathematics, often solving difficult problems by mental process alone. When James K. Polk became President he superseded William Flanagan in 1847 with Major John Taliaferro. Two years later Flanagan was put back in the office by Polk’s successor, and held on until 1851. During his incumbency his brother, Judge James Flanagan, was his deputy and performed most of the duties of the office.

Peter Flanagan, father of Judge Flanagan was appointed by President Madison in 1815 as Collector of   Revenue for the Winchester district, which extended as far as the big Sandy river. This appointment was made on the recommendation of Governor Jas. Clark, a native of Clark county, then a member of Congress from the district. But Peter declined the office, and on the organization of the Commonwealth’s Bank of Kentucky, with a branch in each judicial district of the State, Peter was made cashier of the Winchester branch. John J. Crittenden, one of the principal officers of the Commonwealth Bank, reposed great confidence in Peter Flanagan, whom he used to say “the most upright man he ever knew.” Peter retained the cashier-ship until the Commonwealth’s Bank went into liquidation in 1832.

The Flanagan Tavern.

When the town of Winchester was surveyed and laid off on its present plan in 1801, Peter Flanagan was granted lot No. 67. In 1801 he built on it a two story log house and opened in it a tavern, the first one in the town. It was burned some years later and in 1818 Hon. Chilton Allen erected on the site a large brick hotel that until recently was known as the Rees House. It was torn down two years ago to give place to the present splendid hotel building now nearly completed.

After Chilton Allen built the brick house it was kept by a man named Dudley and was known as the Dudley House. In 1822 Hay Toliver purchased the house and it became the Toliver House. In 1835 Toliver died and Peter Flanagan again became owner of the lot and the brick hotel on it. It was then again named the Flanagan Hotel. Peter ran the house for thirteen years and after his death the family conducted it selling it in 1850 to Rufus Lisle, who conducted it for some years, and was also engaged in other lines of business. About 1854 Lisle sold the hotel to Robert E. Bush, it passed through several other hands until Major Wm. E. Rees bought it and conducted it for twenty years. After his death it was leased by W. H. Bosworth, of Lexington, who ran it until the erection of the present fine building was decided on.

The Warwick Family.

This family, connected by intermarriage with the Flanagans, was also prominent in its day and generation. As stated above, Capt. Jacob Warwick fell gallantly fighting at Tippecanoe in 1811. Beside him, with their companies touching flanks, also fell Capt. Spier Spencer, another brave Kentuckian, who, after being twice shot and prostrated, rose on one elbow, cheered on his men and receiving another ball from the savages, fell dead. For him were named the counties of Spencer in both Kentucky and Indiana. Like Warwick, he had emigrated to Indiana before the war.

John Warwick (the father of Ruth, Judge Flanagan’s mother, and also of Capt. Warwick, emigrated to Kentucky from Bath county Virginia, in 1788, settling on 500 acres of land near Bryan’s Station, on which is “Warwick’s Cave,” on North Elkhorn. The land was a few years ago owned by Edward Darnaby. John Warwick served in the Virginia militia under Washington during the French and Indian war. He was in Braddock’s defeat in 1755. He had two sons and six daughters, viz.:

Mary, who first married ____ Hamilton, and then Basil Brown, of Indianapolis.

Eleanor, who married James Flanagan, Sr.

Margaret, who married James Flanagan.

Anna, who married _____ McClure, of Princeton, Ind.

Elizabeth, who married, ______ Montgomery, of Clark county, and settled in Gibson county, Ind.

Lucy, who also married a Montgomery, brother of Elizabeth’s husband.

Capt. Jacob Warwick, was born in Bath county, Virginia, in 1772, and came with his father to Kentucky. He went to school in Fayette to James Smith, a famous teacher of that day. His father, John Warwick, died in 1801. In 1808 the family led by Jacob, emigrated to Gibson county, Ind. In 1811 Jacob raised a company in that county and joined Harrison at Tippecanoe.

The Warwicks owned a good deal of land in Kentucky, including Warwick’s Landing, on the Kentucky, near which they laid off the town of Warwick, but which never materialized beyond a nice looking map. Warwick’s Landing was on the south side of the Kentucky, in Garrard county, on the road from Lexington to Lancaster.

Judge Flanagan.

The following appeared in the Lexington Herald of September 30th, and we take pleasure in reproducing and endorsing it:

“Judge James Flanagan celebrated his eighty-fifth birthday Thursday and received congratulations of his numerous friends. He is very active for one of his age, and appears every morning in court during motion hours. He and Judge F. C. Burnam and J. W. Caperton, of Richmond, are perhaps the oldest lawyers engaged in practice in Kentucky, and are entitled to that honor in this, the Twenty-Fifth Judicial Circuit, Judge Flanagan being the oldest of the three.

Judge Flanagan was born in Winchester, as he expresses it, “an unworthy son of an honored sire,” and has spent his life here. He remembers Henry Clay quite well and says of Clay that he was the most powerful speaker he ever heard, and is chock full of reminiscences of celebrities long dead. He is a staunch Democrat, though putting principle before party. He is very fond of the Herald, and this fondness is heightened by his remembrances of Colonel Breckinridge, who gave The Herald its reputation.

Judge Flanagan attributes his strength and long life to abstemious habits and good care of his health. He has never used liquor to excess and stopped using tobacco in any form twenty-five years ago. His has been an honorable old age, of which he may be justly proud.”

The Sun-Sentinel, Thursday, October 12, 1905

 

Passing of Judge Flanagan

Winchesters oldest native citizen goes to his eternal rest.

After making a brave but unsuccessful fight for life, Judge James Flanagan died about 2:30 o’clock Friday afternoon from the effects of a fall received February Court Day. The end came peacefully, and was not unexpected, but still it came as a shock to his many friends. The esteem in which he was held was attested by the crowd which repaired to the Methodist Church Sunday afternoon where the funeral services were held. These services were conducted by Rev. J. R. Savage and Eld. J. W. Harding and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery under the auspices of Hickman Lodge of Odd Fellows of which he was the oldest member. In the death of Judge James Flanagan probably the most remarkable citizen of Winchester has passed away. Born in September 1820 he was in the eighty-sixth year of his age. Born in this city, and with a memory most tenacious, he was a living epitome of local history. Possessed of an excellent constitution he pursued the calm and even tenor of his way finding interest and pleasure in the affairs of life and greatly interested in the success and growth of his native town, even until his life was cut short in his old age by an accident. He was a splendid specimen of the old school Kentucky gentleman. Dignified and polite in his intercourse with men, and like a knight of old held women in highest reverence. He was endowed with a keen sense of humor and the kindest of hearts and was one of a type that is fast passing away. As a lawyer he was contemporary with James Simpson, Chiltor Allen, James Clark, John B. Juston, Charles Eginton, Samuel Hanson and others of the Winchester bar, when it was acknowledged to be the strongest bar in the State. He was a friend and admirer of Henry Clar, whom he thought one of the greatest men the world has ever produced. He came of Irish ancestrey, his grandfather, Hugh Flanagan, having come from Ireland to Maryland, where he died in 1818, aged ninety-seven years. He was a Catholic and settled in the Catholic colony of Lord Baltimore. He left seven sons and three daughters. Three of these sons came to Kentucky, married three sisters, Misses Warrick, sisters of Capt. Warrick, a famous man in the early history of Kentucky and Indiana and who was killed in 1811 at the battle of Tippecanoe. James and John Flanagan each located four hundred acres near the town, a part of these farms being now in the city limits. Peter located in the town, which was then but five years old and consisted of a few log huts. His lot was number 67 and on it he built a two story log house and opened a tavern, the first one in town. This was in 1804. It was burned a few years later in 1818. Hon. Chilton Allen built the brick hotel known after as the Rees House and which was torn down a few years ago to build the magnificent Brown-Proctoria. The children of Peter Flanagan were Eliza, born in 1804, died in infancy; William, born in 1805, died in 1851; George, a physician, born in 1807 died in 1836; Catherine, born in 1809, married John Whitehead, of this town and died in 1848; James, the subject of this sketch, was born in 1820. January 4, 1860, he married Miss Susan Wilson, who died in 1890. She was a woman of much talent and exalted character and was a niece of former United States Senator, Garrett Davis, Mary Flanagan, a younger sister, of Judge Flanagan, was born in 1824 and in 1846 she married Charles Poston, of this city. To James and Susan Flanagan were born two children, a daughter who died in infancy, and George, who was born in 1862 and who died in Montgomery, Alabama in 1902. Judge Flanagan was educated in Winchester Academy, which was quite a good school in its day and commenced the battle of life as a clerk in the dry goods store of Simpson & Whitehead. He remained there seven years and was then made Deputy Postmaster under his brother, William, the office being in the Flanagan Hotel. He then read law under John B. Huston and was admitted to the bar in 1857. For nearly forty years he practiced in this city and acquired a comfortable competence. His strong position in the affections of the people was shown by his election to office several times. In 1857 he was chosen a Magistrate under the new Constitution; he was City Attorney for eight years and twice chosen as County Attorney. In 1894 he was elected to the Legislature to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge Beckner, and in 1883 was appointed Circuit Judge by Governor Blackburn to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Judge Ben Buckner. In 1866 he was appointed United States District Assessor but declined. He was a consistent member of the Methodist Church and was the oldest member of Hickman Lodge, No. 72, of Odd Fellows. A few years ago the veterans badge was bestowed on him for having been a member of the order for more than fifty years. He was a walking encyclopedia of history, especially of local history. His memory of names and facts was very tenacious and many of the facts of local history which were known only to him, are lost through his death.

Flanagan’s Hotel An Ancient Document.Miss Lucy Jones brought to our office this week the following invitation which was quaintly printed with old-fashioned type on plain white paper, quite unlike the elaborate invitations of the present day:Christmas Ball.You are respectfully invited to attend a Ball on the 25th inst., at Flanagan’s House at 7 o’clock, P. M.

Managers.

Winchester, Dec. 16, 1844.

 

The invitation was sent by Mr. H. C. Allan, one of the managers, to Miss Agnes Elliott and Miss S. J. Jones.

The former married Martin Hoagland and moved to the far West many years ago. The latter afterward became the wife of Gen. Armstead Blackwell and died many years ago.

Of the twenty managers whose names are signed to the invitation, only one, “Uncle” Gip Martin is now living and he and Judge Flanagan are perhaps the only living survivors of that ball.

Many of them lived to a good old age and are remembered by many of our readers, while others died or moved away many years ago.

Capt. John Martin was for years a prominent citizen and died full of years and honors.

Robt. Hume was a farmer who lived at or near where Matt Redford now lives.

Lewis Hampton lived near the city on the Boonesboro Pike, and for many years was a prominent farmer and shorthorn breeder.

J. Stonestreet was a farmer who was related to the VanMeters and others of our best people.

Capt. Jas. P. Gay died a few years ago. He was for many years the Representative of this county in the Legislature.

Sam Stuart, whose name is spelled wrong in the above, was one of the most popular men of his day and was for some time Sheriff of this county.

H. C. Allan was a son of Hon. Chilton Allan, and died in early manhood. His wife afterward married Gen. John B. Huston.

John Bean was one of the best known and highly esteemed citizens of the county and died a few years ago.

Wm. Winn was a brother to the late Col. R. N. Winn and Nick Winn. He moved from here to Mason county and many years ago, where he spent the most of his life. He died in Lexington a few years ago and his wife is still living.

Asa Bean was for many years and until his death, one of our best and most progressive farmers.

Wm. Clark was a nephew of Governor Clark and was then a clerk in a dry goods store here.

Wm. Sphar was also a highly successful farmer and left a large estate.

T. L. Norton was a druggist in this city. He went from here to Fleming county and achieved considerable prominence in local politics.

Hector Lewis was a well known young man, who joined the Confederate army and was killed at Gallatin, Tenn.

Roger Hanson as a lawyer and soldier, probably attained greater prominence than any other name on the list. As a lawyer, he took high rank and in the Civil War he became a Brigadier General, and was killed at Stone River at the head of the Orphan Brigade.

M. Taylor was for a long time one of the most prominent citizens of our city.

Cadwallader Jones was for some years County clerk and was a very popular man. He died about the close of the war.

Ed. Massie was a merchant in this city and was well and favorably known.

Chas. Poston was a well known citizen of this city, who moved to Tennessee where he died a few years ago.

Ben Frank Thomas was a young lawyer of Mt. Sterling, whose early death cut short a promising career.

A singular feature of the invitation is that it fixes the time for the commencement of the ball at seven o’clock. Now, no one would think of going until several hours later.

Flasher, Harry Row at School Exhibition.A Free For All Fight in Which One Person Was Killed and Five or Six Others Were Lately Wounded.Charleston, W. Va., Dec. 13—At a school exhibition near Poca, this county, occurred one of the most terrible tragedies ever enacted in the county, resulting in the death of one and fatally wounding five or six others. A crowd of young men attempted to disturb the school exhibition and break up the performance, when the teacher, named Fisher, objected and tried to eject them. They turned on him and several of the audience coming to his assistance, caused a general free for all fight between the two factions who have had a long standing feud. Harry Flasher was shot in the heart and died instantly; Henry Carney, shot in the back and dying. Ralph Jones and two others whose names are not obtainable were fatally shot.

Fleming, W. R. Death of Col. W. R. Flaming.Col. W. R. Fleming, one of the oldest residents of our city, died Wednesday evening of grip at the residence of his son-in-law, P. B. Winn, on South Maple street, in the eighty-eighth year of his age. The remains will be interred at Lexington today. Services at the grave by Dean Lewis, of the Episcopal church, of which he had long been a member.He was a native of Fleming county but for a long time lived in Philadelphia, and later lived at Lexington; for several years past he has lived here with his daughter. He was twice married; his first wife was Miss Howard, of Montgomery county; his second Miss Lizzie Hood, of Scott county. One child, Mrs. P. B. Winn, alone survives.He was the first commercial traveler, or drummer, that ever went through this section and had crossed the Allegheny mountains 96 times by stage.

He amassed a fortune as a partner and drummer for a Philadelphia silk house but lost it by his generosity and security debts.

He had served in the Internal Revenue service and a commission as such arrived for him on the day of his death. Notwithstanding his extreme age he was a genial, cheery man and a delightful companion.

Fletcher, John E. Died in TexasJohn E. Fletcher, died at his home in Collin county, Texas, July 26th, of paralysis,       aged 81 years. He was a native of this county and was one of those who left here in   1849 to join the gold seekers in California. In those days the wagon route was the only one. Nearly all of his company died on the way of cholera, but he persisted and finally reached the golden state. He stayed there ten years and moved to Texas about the beginning of the Civil war. He fought through the war in the Confederate ranks, and   since the close he had lived on a farm. He leaves a widow and five children. He was a member of the Christian church and was a fine citizen. His mother was an Elkin, of this county, and he has many relatives here.The Winchester Democrat   Tuesday, August 11, 1908

In the Plano Texas Star we saw the death of a formerly Clark county man, John E. Fletcher, who died at his home eight miles west of Plano, July 26. Mr. Fletcher had been in feeble health for some four years. He was overcome with a stroke of paralysis while in Plano four years ago. He was carried home and his affliction rendered him helpless since that time. John E. Fletcher was born in Clark county, Ky., was 81 years old. He was one of the men that went from her to California in 49 across the plains in wagons, lived and married there, went from there to Texas in 1860, located in Collin county, and married Miss Mattie Collier the same year. He went through the Civil war without a scratch. He returned home and took up farming. He leaves a wife and six children. Mr. Fletcher was a man much respected by all who knew him.

Her funeral was held yesterday morning at the Methodist Church, of which denomination she had been a member for fifty-seven years; the services were conducted by Revs. Geo. H. Means and Geo. S. Savage and the remains were buried in the local cemetery.

She was a native of Estill county before her marriage being Miss Sams; at the age of fifteen she married Marcus L. Thomas, eight children being the offspring of this marriage, of whom survive Mrs. N. J. Henderson, of Ruckerville, Mrs. N. N. Wilson, of Versailles, Mrs. M. T. Creekmore of Lexington, Marcus L. Thomas of this county and Mrs. Annie B. Tuttle of this city. Her first husband died in 1864 and six years later she married Judge Robert Fluty. Two daughters are children of this marriage, Mrs. J. Sam Smith of Shelby county and Miss Maude Fluty of this city. Of her immediate family, her brother, P. M. Sams of Estill county, is the only survivor.

For the past fourteen years she has been a resident of this city where she leaves a host of friends to regret her death.

Flynn, Dudley In the death of Mr. Dudley Flynn, which occurred last Saturday, the county loses an excellent citizen, and the community in which he lived a good neighbor. His funeral was preached at his late residence and was largely attended.. His remains were placed for the present in the vault at the cemetery.The Clark County Democrat     Wed., 1-19-1881Died—At his residence in this county, January 15th, 1881, Dudley Flynn, Esq., aged 58 years and 15 days. Born and reared in this county, Mr. Flynn had spent his life in the neighborhood of his nativity and by his high integrity as a business man, his kindness and benevolence as a friend and neighbor, and his lofty sense of honor as a man and a citizen, had won an honorable place in the confidence and esteem of all who knew him. The large concourse of weeping friends present at his funeral gave evidence of the regard in which he was held. But it is in the family circle that his loss will be most keenly felt. A man of quiet and unobtrusive manner, it was here in his family relationship that his virtues shown-forth most conspicuously, and those who survive him-a wife and eight sons and daughters-will long cherish his memory and dwell upon those virtues so fully manifested in the endearing relation of husband and father. And yet, while the loss of those is great, and a sore bereavement has fallen upon this household, they can even rejoice, since they “sorrow not as those who have no hope”. Mr. Flynn was a Christian. For more than thirty years he had been a consistent member of the church, and those with whom he associated, and to whom he was best known, took knowledge of him that he was a man of God. Thus, these sorrowing ones can look upon this affliction as only bringing a temporary separation, and, imitating his example in living a Christian life, may hope for a blissful reunion in that land where no tear shall ever dim, the eye, and no partings sever the ties of a loving companionship. For it is written—“Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord”.

Flynn, Fielding R. DEATHS   Sunday afternoon, at Pilot View, after an illness of two days, Fielding Flynn, aged about forty-one years. He leaves a wife and two children. Funeral at Sugar Ridge by Rev. C. B. Clark and interment in the family graveyard.The Democrat, Wednesday, September 16, 1891.IN MEMORIAM

After an illness of scarce thirty-six hours, FIELDING R. FLYNN died at his residence in Pilot View, Sept, 18th, aged 41 years. Professed the Savior’s love at fifteen, was united in marriage to miss Annie F. Rupard, at twenty years of age. A sudden transition from his home on earth to a home in heaven. God pronounced his work finished, and bade him enter into his rest, when man thought it just begun, but a “Life is scarce the twinkling of a star in god’s eternal day.” His death made a deep impression upon the whole community in which he lived. The large concourse that assembled to pay the last tribute of respect to his remains, and the beautiful floral offerings that covered the fresh mound fully testified to the love and general esteem in which he was held.   Our deceased friend possessed many excellent traits of character, which endeared him to his fellow-men.   Kind hearted and true, genial and jovial in manner and conversation, none of your long-faced, gloomy Christians, but one of God’s very own light-hearted and happy children.   Early in life he connected himself with the Cumberland Presbyterian Church at Sugar Ridge, where later on he served as deacon for seven consecutive years, and faithfully performed the arduous work connected with the office. Recently when our little band of members went up the Macedonian cry for help to establish a mission church at Winchester, he responded readily, by giving not only his prayers and money, but his time, too, in soliciting funds for its erection, and was successful many times, where others would have failed; but his labors here are ended, his earthly mission fulfilled and the spirit gone to obtain its reward. Our hearts go out in sympathy for his bereaved family. We vainly wish for some sweet, comforting words of consolation, but Jesus has given them all in His holy Word. Look into Him for strength and comfort, believing “He will not fall thee nor forsake thee.” One more name is now added to the list of loved ones in the home of the redeemed awaiting the coming of our aged mother, a sorrowing wife and loving sons.

“Oh, how sweet it will be in that beautiful land,

So free from all sorrow, and pain;

With songs on our lips, and with harps in our hands,

To meet one another again.”

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 30, 1891.

 

Mrs. Elizabeth Flynn made an assignment Monday to M. I. Wills for the benefit of her creditors.   Assets about fifty acres of improved land. Liabilities about $ 1,500. The assignment was caused by her having been security for her son, Fielding Flynn, deceased.

Friday was Decoration Day with the Knights of Pythias, and was appropriately observed by Ivanhoe Lodge. Special services were held at the lodge room, being conducted by the Rev. Sneed, of Mt. Sterling. The graves of the fallen knights were handsomely decorated. The floral designs were the emblems and colors of the order, and were the handsomest we have ever seen. Ivanhoe Lodge was instituted about half a dozen years ago, and now numbers about fifty, embracing some of the best men of the city. But three of the order have died, viz: Thomas Berry, James Sewell and John Flynn.

Flynn, John T. SAD TRAGEDY.John T. Flynn, of this County Commits suicide at Lexington.Saturday John T. Flynn was in the city full of the life and vigor of young manhood, full of plans for the future and with nothing to indicate to his friends that he mediated death by his own hands. He left here on the afternoon train and went to Lexington where he registered at the Phoenix Hotel that night. Just before night he purchased a new suit of underwear from Straum Bros. He paid his hotel bill in advance, saying he would not want breakfast. After supper he bought a couple of water glasses and took them to his room. He also bought sixty grains of strychnine, sixty grains of morphine and an ounce of carbolic acid. About midnight he took his watch and money and had them put in the hotel safe. At 8:30 next morning he told the chambermaid that he would sleep awhile longer. At eleven o’clock he said he would sleep till 2:30. At five p.m. the maid found him dead in his bed. An examination showed he had taken most of the strychnine, a large part of the acid and a quantity of the morphine, and had gone to bed and died in a short time. The only reason given was in a note left on the table, giving directions to notify his relatives and containing the following sentence: “I have only to say that the burden of life is too great. I can’t stand it any longer.” The coroner’s jury brought in a verdict in accordance with these facts. Joe Clinkenbeard and D. Gordon, formerly of this city, were members of the jury. The deceased was about thirty years old and a son of Mason O. Flynn, of this county. In August he was secretly married to Miss Maude Nelson of this county, and the marriage was publicly announced a few weeks ago. He had rented land near Hunt this county and moved there recently.   The remains were brought here yesterday and placed in the vault, at the cemetery.The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, January 8, 1901.

Flynn, Mrs. Mary Ann DeathsMrs. Mary Ann Flynn died at her home on Fairfax street in this city on March 16th, aged 60 years. She was the daughter of the late Sam Combs and the widow of John Flynn, two good citizens well known in their day. The funeral was preached at the First Christian Church by Elders C. J.

Mrs. Flynn’s Will

Mr. Tom Combs. The sole surviving brother of Mrs. Mary Combs Flynn, is in town, and it is said that he is having an investigation of his sister’s will made, with a view to making an effort to break it. No official steps have been taken.

The Sun-Sentinel   Thur., Aug. 10, 1905

 

By the will of the late Mrs. Mary Flynn, her residence on Lexington Avenue was given to the city as the nucleus for a city hospital under certain conditions. A portion of this property came to her by the will of her brother, Ben Combs, who left his property to her. Since then the Ben Combs will has been legally broken by Thomas Combs, a brother, and the property is in litigation between him and Miss Sadie Webb, a legatee under the will of Mrs. Flynn. The city was asked to renounce its right under Mrs. Flynn’s will so that the suit between the other parties might be compromised, and the case is set in Circuit Court for Friday. A special session of the Council was held last night to consider the matter.

The Winchester Democrat   Tue., April 10, 1906

 

Relinquished Their Claim

As noted in our last issue the city is a legatee under the will of Mrs. Mary Combs Flynn, she having left her home on Lexington Avenue to the city as the nucleus for a City Hospital. The will is in litigation between Thomas Combs, her brother, and Miss Sadie Webb, a legatee under the will. In order to facilitate a compromise of this litigation, a special meeting of the City Council was held Monday night at which the city relinquished all claim to the property under the terms of the will. The suit will now be compromised, as Mr. Combs will get the old home and Miss Webb the two new cottages built on the rear of the lot facing Burns Street.

A peculiar feature of the case is that Stovall was placed on trial three days after being arrested, on three charges, and was on trial three days. The murder for which Stovall received a life sentence was committed two weeks ago at Artemus. At that point officers and a crowd of negroes fought a battle following efforts of the posse to serve warrants.

Ford, J. R. Stricken Students.Two Deaths From Typhoid Fever at the Kentucky University and Many More Are Ill.Lexington, Ky., Nov. 18.—Nearly 40 students of the Kentucky university have typhoid fever, and it has become necessary for the faculty to take decided steps toward checking it. The students have been sent to the Good Samaritan Hospital, but since there is no more room at that institution it has become necessary to care for them at their boardinghouses. Oscar   Martin, aged 34, single, a Bible student, died Monday, and Monday night his remains were sent to Plantersville, Ala., in charge of his parents. A week ago another Bible student, J. R. Ford, of Butler, Mo., died.The cause was at first attributed to the water, but now some members of the faculty believe it was due to milk from cows fed on distillery slop. President Cave says that the epidemic has been checked and there is no further cause for alarm, and that every one of the patients is now rapidly improving. The dormitory building is quite old and some believe that the fever germs are in the walls of the building, although it is kept as clean and is as well preserved as it is possible to have it. This is the hundredth session of this famous school which was the first established in the west.

Ford, aged 51 years.   He was a prominent farmer and trader and probably no man in the county stood higher as a man and citizen than he.   He was a member of Capt. Pendleton’s company, Col. Cluke’s Regiment of Morgan’s Command during the late war, and performed his military duties as he did those of civil life, quietly and well.   A number of his old companions in arms escorted the remains to the cemetery, where they were borne after a funeral discourse at the Methodist church by Rev. C. J. Nugent. Mr. Ford left a widow, nee Miss Rosa Shields, to whom he was married last September, and to whom we tender our sympathy in this hour of afflictionThe Winchester Democrat     Wed., 5-4-1887Rev. C. J. Nugent was called to Winchester, Monday tp preach the funeral sermon of W. B. Ford.

Forkner, O. V. A special from Stanton of the 28th, has the following in which the plaintiffs are closely related to the families of Capt. Hathaway, Capt. Wheeler and others. John C. Mason, mentioned herein, was formerly Congressman from this district, and Capt. Wheeler was at one time engaged in the iron business in the section referred to. “One of the largest land suits ever brought in the Powell County Circuit was filed here today, styled R. A. Mason, Lizzie F. Mason, of Texas; Chess O. Mason and George Mason of Bath county, Ky., children and heirs of the John C. Mason, who died in Texas in 1865, against J. R. Hardwick, John W. Williams, John A. Rose, Green H. Hall and O. V. Forkner, of Powell county, for the possession of   3000 acres of land, lying near Stanton, and $10,000 damages. The land sued for was sold for taxes by the sheriff of Powell county in 1877, and was knocked off to the parties named for $39 and in lawful time afterward the purchasers received a deed for the same from the Sheriff; since which time they have had undisputed possession of, and have sold off several tracts to other parties who have greatly improved the lands. The heirs were then minors, but now have become of age and set up their claim. They are descendants of a prominent family. Mr. R. A. Mason is at this time the United States Marshal of the State of Texas. His father, John C. Mason, was once a prominent Kentuckian, and owned a large tract of land in this section of the State, but had sold off the greater part of it before and since his removal to Texas, and after his death in 1865 the unsold lands here were narrow strips of several miles in length, mainly on the mountain range on each side of Red river, covered with timber, but was neglected and unnoticed until the development of this part of the State by the building of the Kentucky Union railroad and the erection of many saw mills and other industries. Two of the defendants to the suit, John A. Rose and O. V. Forkner, died a few years ago, and the several children have been made party defendants. Judge B. F. Day, of Mt. Sterling and the Hon. John D. Atkinson, of this place filed the petition and of course, there will be a hard fought battle on both sides, and the bringing of this action creates quite a sensation.”The Winchester Democrat, Friday, June 1, 1894

Forman, Harvey W. Harvey W. FormanPassing of a man whose character left its impress on his friendsHarvey W. Forman, a resident of Osborne district, Phoenix, for two years has been called to his final reward. He died at his home with his parents on North Seventh street, November 5th, 1909. He was born in Greencastle, Indiana, January 9, 1867 which was also the birthplace of his mother. From Indiana he moved at a very tender age to Winchester, Ky. Here he was educated in the public school and high school, from which he went to De Pauw University at Greencastle, Indiana, studying there in 1884-85. He then went to Danville Normal School, Indiana, from which school he was graduated in 1893 and took the A.B. degree. He taught several years in Kentucky and then attended the Kentucky Wesleyan College at Winchester for two years. He again taught in Kentucky, Missouri, and Mississippi being principal of several schools in those States. In 1899 he entered the civil service employment, being in charge of some very important contracts. His work became so strenuous and he became so interested in the government work on the rivers of the south that he fell a victim to malaria and later tuberculosis without stopping to consider the terrible result. For the past three years he has been trying by travel and climate to allay the malady, but the dreadful disease at last mastered him. He has been a consistent Christian all of his life and loved his church and church work. He was converted, baptized and joined M.E. Church, South, at the age of eighteen. He identified himself with the church at every place of residence, being a member at the time of his death of Bethel Church, Phoenix, of which his brother, Rev. G.W. Forman, is pastor. He loved the Epworth League work and did an unlimited amount of good, working in the societies of Chattanooga, Tennessee and other places. Not only did his Christian work tell among the young people, but his true Christian life and works influenced and helped all with whom he worked or came in contact. The men with whom he last worked say the respect they had for him “amounted almost to reverence, as he was the most consistent, unobtrusive Christian character they ever knew.” It can be truly said of him that he was intellectual in his tastes and spiritual in his temper. – The Arizona Republican, Nov. 20thThe Winchester Democrat   Friday, December 3, 1909

Fothergill, James Another Suicide-Our community was startled Monday morning by the announcement that Mr. James Fothergill, bar keeper at the Rees House, had taken morphine and was in a dying condition. Every effort that medical skill and warm friendship could suggest was made to save him, but it was without avail, and about 4 o’clock in the afternoon he passed away. He had gotten the morphine from Dr. Sympson’s office where he slept the night before in the doctors absence. After his condition was discovered, he told those about him not to let him go to sleep, and seemed anxious to have his life saved. He had taken nineteen grains, which had worked its way into his system before anybody knew what he had done. An inquest was held over him by coroner John Burke and the following verdict returned: We the jury find the body is that of James W. Fothergill, who came to his death by an overdose of morphine administered to himself.   W. H. Garner, John Taliaferro, E. S. Jouett, J. H. Oden, Ben. D. Wills, W. D. Rash. Mr. Fothergill was a more than ordinarily intelligent man, had warm, generous impulses, and liked by all who knew him. He came here eight or ten years ago and went into the photograph business and has been living in Winchester nearly ever since.   His brother Ed. Is foreman of the Kentuckian office at Paris, where he has a number of relatives residing.The Clark County Democrat     Wed., 3-9-1881

Fox, Bluford Jr. Death Of Bluford Fox, Jr.Bluford Fox, Jr. died Friday morning as a result of an operation for appendicitis a short time previous. The operation was too long delayed and the case was almost hopeless from the start.   He was about twenty-five years old and the only son of Jas. A. Fox. He leaves a young wife the daughter of John D. Reese, and a son six weeks old. The immense funeral procession that followed the remains to the cemetery Saturday attested the high esteem in which he was held.The Winchester Democrat   Tue., March 6, 1900

We understand that Dr. Browne takes umbrage at the statement in our last issue concerning the death of Mr. Bluford Fox, Jr., that the operation was deferred too long.   We got our information from Mr. Reese, the father-in-law of the deceased, who said that sloughing had already taken place, and that the poisonous secretions had already suffused the bowels and that the disease had evidently existed for years. No reflection was intended on the professional skill of Dr. Browne, but if the facts given above are true then it is evident that the operation had been too long deferred.

In Memoriam.

Miss Jane Fox departed this life Thursday, January 30, 1902, in her eighty-fifth year, she being the longest lived of the family of William Fox, deceased.

She was a consistent member of Goshen Church for the period of thirty-six years. A kind neighbor, “given to hospitality,” honest and sincere in her dealings with her fellow man; a Christian woman.

On her departure no earthly parent was there to plant a kiss on the feverish brow, nor bid farewell to earthly joys. Methinks that the angels did gently whisper to her “On earth peace, good will toward men.”

May we express gratitude to our ancestors who have gone before us and left us clean records of which we are justly proud.

A noble creed to love indeed;

A noble stand is love for men.

A Friend

God has called another from the family circle. Scarce ten days have gone by since the father of this subject passed peacefully through the “Dark Valley and Shadow of Death,” the husband, on whose strong arm the mother had hoped to lean throughout all her days. And, in the midst of this sore trial God has taken the darling babe to dwell with the loved ones gone before her. No more will you hear the baby’s words fall from her lips. No more will the sound of those little feet fall upon the ear. Our Heavenly Father has taken her in the heaven of eternal rest, where she will meet with those on whom death laid his withering hand, and hear again the voice of her dear father, mother, brother and sister. Grieve no more. Has not our blessed Redeemer said, “I go to prepare a place for you in my Father’s house – had it not been so I should have told you. You shall again behold those dear ones in heaven, to be separated no more forever.” Yes happy thoughts, when we are free From earthly grief and pain, In heaven we shall each other see And never part again.The Clark County Democrat   Wednesday, February 2, 1881Died—On Friday, the 28th of January, at the residence of her grandpa, Jesse G.

Frazier, Charles L. Life endedChas. L. Frazier ends his life by taking carbolic acid – A hardened criminalTuesday, Charles L. Frazier was tried in the Circuit court and given five years in the penitentiary for taking a gold watch, chain and pair of cuff buttons from Miss Carrie Lee Warner, and appropriating them to his own use. Frazier was the best dressed man in the court room and seemed among the least concerned during the trial. After conviction he chatted freely with those around him and did not seem in the least cast down. That afternoon he threw a quarter out of the window to Geo. Mason, a colored trusty, with directions to get him a cigar and a dime’s worth of carbolic acid, which he desired to use for external purposes. Shortly after eight o’clock Jailer Mullins heard screams of agony from the jail and found that Frazier had taken the drug. Medical aid was summoned but he was already unconscious and died in about an hour from the time of taking the drug. The next morning Coroner Nunnelley was notified and held an inquest with the following jury, T.G. Barrow, J.A. Bishop, J.A. Gills, Geo. H. Fox, J.W. Chambers, and Frank Gordon, who, after hearing the testimony brought in a verdict of suicide. He was a member of a highly respectable family at Owensboro where his parents and several brothers and sisters reside. He was but twenty nine years of age but was already a hardened criminal. He had served one term in the Eddyville penitentiary for safe blowing and another for grand larceny. Some months ago he opened an office here for pressing men’s suits, issuing tickets at one dollar each which would entitle the holder to have his suit pressed for a definite time. He collected quite a sum in this manner, borrowed Miss Warner’s watch and left. After several weeks Chief of Police McCord located him in Louisville where he was arrested and brought here. It is claimed that he had four living wives from none of whom had he ever procured a divorce. One of them who lives at Georgetown, was here and testified against him. When he left here he took with him a suit or two which had been entrusted to his care. He then went to Warsaw, Indiana, where he did the same thing. In fact, he was wanted in various places for swindling various people, and there was enough charges against him to keep him in prison many years if they had been pressed. When arrested he had several stolen suits. One which cost forty dollars was sold for four dollars, the owner being a couple of days too late to claim it. The suit in which he was buried is also claimed to have been stolen. His people at Owensboro were communicated with after his death but didn’t wish to incur the expense of sending the body to that point and it was buried at the county farm.The Winchester Democrat   Friday, September 30, 1910

Freeman, Neeley A HARRODSBURG special Tuesday says: “Edward Bunnell, aged seventeen years, who resides in the Poor neck neighborhood of Mercer county, was brought to the jail here to-day and locked on a charge of murder. The crime was committed yesterday, and the boy’s victim was Neeley Freeman, his uncle, who lived with the Bunnell family. Freeman, in return for his board, supported Bunnell’s fifteen-year-old sister. He recently purchased a dress for her, and she wore it for the first time yesterday to church, taking with her as an escort a young man of the neighborhood.   On her return Freeman remonstrated with his niece and told her the young man was not a suitable companion for her. Young Bunnell took the side of his sister, and this provoked a quarrel in the morning.   The quarrel was renewed at a woodpile in the afternoon, when the murder was committed. It is reported that Freeman made an attack on young Bunnell with an ax, which the boy resented by firing the contents of a shotgun into his uncle’s face. Freeman’s head was torn open from his nose to the crown of his head.”The Winchester Democrat, Friday, October 5, 1894.HERE AND THERE-At Harrodsburg Friday, Eddie Bunnell was sentenced to the pen two years for killing his uncle, Neal Freeman.

Fremont, John C. One of the most interesting characters in American history is Gen. John C. Fremont. He was born in 1813 and died in 1890. He was a native of Georgia and a graduate of Charleston College, Charleston South Carolina and was a professor of mathematics. In 1839 he was commissioned lieutenant of engineers in the army.He explored in 1842 a portion of the Rocky mountains. The two following years he devoted to an exploration of Utah. In 1846 he took part in the Bear Flag war in California. Some aggrieved American settlers in California rose against Mexico, seized Sonoma and raised a flag bearing the figure of a bear. A republic was proclaimed and a Mexican force defeated. Capt. Fremont joined the insurgents with a body of American troops under his command. He was court-martialed for disobedience to Gen. Kearney, and was found guilty, but the penalty of dismissal from the service was remitted by President Polk.From 1848 to 1854 he explored the territory that is now known as New Mexico, extending explorations as far as Sacramento, California. He was the first to bring to our knowledge the vast resources of the western country.In 1850 he was elected United States Senator from California. While he was a Southerner by birth and education he was opposed to the extension of slavery. In 1856 he was nominated for the Presidency by the republication convention that met in Philadelphia. This was the first national convention held by the republican party. The popular vote was Buchanan, 1,838,169; Fremont, 1,341,264; Bell, 874, 538. The electoral vote was; Buchanan, 174; Fremont, 114; Bell, 8. When the Civil War began Fremont was made Major General and assigned to the western department with headquarters at St. Louis, where he, without authority from the government, issued a proclamation freeing all slaves in his territory. He was recalled and given a command in the east. Becoming dissatisfied with Gen. Pope, the commanding general, he resigned his commission.

In 1864 the radical wing of the republican party was dissatisfied with the conservative policies of President Lincoln. They held a convention at Cleveland, Ohio, and nominated Fremont for President, but he declined in favor of Lincoln. For several years after the war Fremont devoted himself to promoting railroad enterprises, spending much of his time in foreign countries. From 1878 to 1881, he was Governor of Arizona. In May, 1890, Congress placed him on the retired list with the rank of Major General.

Gen. Fremont wrote a number of books that are of great historical value. On October 19, 1841, he was secretly married to Jessie, the daughter of United States Senator Thos. H. Benton, of Missouri. Mrs. Fremont survived her husband for a number of years.

French, Jas. Hay Death of Judge French.Judge Jas. Hay French died Tuesday afternoon at the home of Misses Bright, on South Main street, of the debility of old age, superinduced by an attack of grippe.He was born in 1823 on the Boonesboro pike, this county, but his family moved to Montgomery while he was a small boy. He studied at Georgetown college, took the law course of old Transylvania and began the practice of law at Owingsville. After a successful career of some years, he returned to the farm, and in 1858 was elected County Judge of Montgomery county, a position which he filled with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. He declined a re-election, and a few years later moved to this city and formed a partnership with Capt. Hathaway, which existed for a number of years.From his youth he had been a consistent member of the Baptist Church and for fifteen years he was   Moderator of Boone’s Creek Association.

He was the eldest son of Judge Richard French, who for many years represented this district in Congress. Of a family of six children, three survive, Rev. Richard French, Judge C. S. French and Mrs. Wm. Timberlake.

The funeral services were held at the Baptist Church Thursday afternoon, conducted by Revs. B. B. Bailey and T. C. Stackhouse. The remains were placed in the vault, but will eventually be buried at the old French graveyard in Montgomery county.

Judge French was never married, although a man of thoroughly domestic tastes, who loved home and its surroundings. He was a thoroughly honest man, a good citizen and a true friend.

HON. RICHARD FRENCH.

Judge Richard French was a native of Madison county, Ky.   On arriving at early manhood and having studied the profession of the law, he chose Winchester as the field of his professional labor. Dick French, as he was familiarly called, so far won the confidence and esteem of the public generally that he came to be regarded as the embodiment of the soul of honor and integrity and manliness in its noblest form. He had a clear, quick apprehension of men and of the spirit of the times, so that he became very deservedly popular as a lawyer, securing a large patronage, and being disposed to engage in political life, he was first elected to the State Legislature, and afterward served three terms as a representative in Congress. He was an eloquent speaker and an adroit ready debater. Judge French married a daughter of Hay Taliaferro, a noble specimen of the old Virginia stock. He had the honor and pleasure of rearing a family upon which they left their own impress in all that was essential to an elevated and honorable life. Judge French read law under Hon. Samuel Hanson. He died in 1854 in the 63 year of his age. Prior to 1840, Winchester furnished to the Judicial district, composed of the counties of Bourbon, Clark, Estill and Madison, three of its judges, viz; Clark, French and Simpson. Hon. Garrett Davis, one of the visiting lawyers who appeared frequently in the Clark Circuit Court, was a great lawyer-possessed of great force, intellectuality and learning, and was a statesman of national reputation.   He was one of the last great men from the south left in the Senate after the close of the civil war. All the persons named in these sketches, have passed from the stage of action to the mystic hereafter.

Historical Reminiscence.

Judge Flanagan tells an interesting reminiscence, that was brought to mind by the death of his friend Judge French recently. Judge French’s paternal grandmother was a Calloway and spent her childhood days in the fort at Boonesboro. In 1840 a great celebration was held at Boonesboro in which militia from all over the State took part.

Mrs. French, nee Calloway, was sent for and with other survivors of the fort community was to be the lion of the hour. When she reached the Clark side of the river, a deputation of citizens and a military guard of honor were sent to escort her across. As they got into the boat, an old negress who had also been an inmate of the fort and who was Mrs. French’s maid on that day, broke out crying.

“What in the world are you crying for, Dolly?” said her mistress.

“Why, Mistis, all dem soljers and folks over there looks ‘zactly like it did when the British and Injuns come to take de fort. An’ it all ‘pear so nachial and skeery, I’m ‘bleeged to cry.”

Mrs. French was a small girl when her older sisters were captured with Jeminy Boone by a band of Indians, was looking on when the capture was made and gave the alarm that resulted in their pursuit and recapture. On that occasion the route of the Indians led them through the northeastern edge of this city, which was then an unbroken wilderness.

Friedman, Louis Found DeadLouis Friedman Found in the Cemetery With a Bullet in His BrainSadie Aldridge Charged With the CrimeOur city is so free from crime and it is so seldom that a tragedy occurs here that the taking of a human life excites more interest than it does in places where those things are more frequent. Hence everybody has been talking of Louis Friedman’s death, although comparatively few of our people knew that such a man had lived here for years.

He and his brother, Wolff Friedman, kept a small store on North Main street and after the close of business Friday evening Louis Friedman put the key of the store in his pocket and went to the Postoffice. This was the last seen of him alive. The next morning as he did not return his brother instituted a search for him but without avail. He telegraphed to Richmond where he formerly lived, but he had not been there. Inquiry at the railway offices developed the fact that he had bought no ticket. He was not given to dissipation and had no haunts that he was likely to frequent. The morning wore away and nothing was heard from him. Perplexity grew into fear and the worst was realized when Will Gilkey, a colored man, going from his work in the cemetery to his dinner in Poynterville, discovered the dead body of a man in the back part of the cemetery near a thicket. He gave the alarm and upon investigation the body was found to be the missing Friedman. He was lying on his back, his right hand by his side and his left resting on his breast, in the left temple was a small hole showing where the deadly bullet entered. His face was peaceful and his limbs were not contorted, showing that death was instantaneous. The wound and the flesh around it were blackened with powder showing the weapon was fired at short range. His coat was spread under him. His clothing was unfastened and his person exposed in an indecent manner. His hat was found some distance away; his watch, jewelry, and a small amount of money was found on his person.

He was about 23 years of age, a native of Russia-Poland, and with his brother Wolff came to this country six years ago. They lived in Richmond a couple of years and have been here about the same length of time. While in Richmond he formed an illicit connection with Sadie Aldridge, and after he came here, she followed and the relations were kept up. As a fruit of this liaison a child was born, which is dead. He was to have been married in a few weeks to a Jewess of Cincinnati, to which Miss Aldridge was violently opposed, and told Mrs. Wolff Friedman that before it should come to pass that she would kill him and then herself.

Other circumstances point to her as the author of the crime and she was arrested and put in jail. She is about twenty-five or thirty years of age and is a daughter of George Aldridge of Montgomery county. She is a grand-daughter of Dick Aldridge who formerly lived in this county.

Coroner Alexander impaneled a jury Saturday, but adjourned the inquest until Monday. The inquest brought out but few material facts except that the last time he was seen alive was when he went to her home. The jury was composed of Jas. Ecton, Sid Shepherd, R. P. Scobee, J. N. Case, J. H. Farney and G. M. Goosey, who brought in a verdict of death at the hands of some person unknown. The remains of the murdered man were taken to Cincinnati for interment.

Trial of Sadie Aldridge

The taking of a human life excites a deep though morbid curiosity, and all day yesterday the court house was thronged with a crowd that seethed and sweated through the dreary details of illicit love and that sin the wages of which is death—in this instance literal, physical death.

The testimony of a number of witnesses were not material, and of the others merely corroborative and circumstantial. Sadie Aldridge, who was accused of the murder of Louis Friedman testified to the long time she had been the mistress of the dead man, and that he had spoken to her of suicide. She denied everything but what was proven by the other side. When first arrested she told conflicting tales, and her story then is known to be false in many details. Friedman was never seen alive after he entered her house.

Mrs. Wolff Friedman, the principal witness for the prosecution, manifested a disposition toward the prisoner as vicious as a Viper, and evidently would secure her conviction at any cost. She testified that she expected to find him dead in the cemetery, and that she expected the prisoner had killed him. The prisoner showed little emotion when informed of his death, and the prosecuting witnesses little more. The police who have investigated the matter are certain, from all the circumstances that Friedman was killed by his mistress after she found he was determined to marry the Cincinnati woman. From the questions of the defense their theory is suicide. The trial was not concluded at the hour of going to press.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, July 6, 1894

 

Judge A. J. Tharp, of Estill county, was here Saturday to testify in the examining trial of Miss Sadie Aldridge for the murder of Louis Friedman. Mr. Tharp married a sister of the defendant..

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, July 10, 1894

 

The interest in the murder of Louis Friedman has seemingly increased in the ratio as the mystery of it deepens. Thursday, Friday and Saturday crowds sweltered and elbowed each other in their eagerness to hear every detail as Judge Haggard sought patiently to unravel the mystery. The defendant was ably represented Judges Beckner, Jouett and Benton, while S. A. Jeffries, Hon. Jas. F. Winn and Judge French represented the commonwealth. The defendant evidently gained in popular favor and a majority of those who heard the trial are convinced that she is innocent. Some, however, cling to their original belief and think she is   guilty. Judge Haggard evidently inclined to her innocence and discharged her. Very few theories are consistent with the facts brought out and the mystery of his death will probably never be unraveled.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, July 10, 1894

 

IN these days news travels far and rapidly. Chief of Police Madigan this week received a letter from a Mr. Friedman, of Massachusetts. The writer had heard of the murder of Louis Friedman in this city, and he has a son of the same name, who as a drummer travels, through this part of the South, and from whom he had not heard for a long time. He was anxious to know whether the murdered man was his son.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, July 13, 1894.

 

A Tragedy Recalled.

In the hurry and push of the present age tragedies are soon forgotten, or are pushed out of our lives by the mighty present. Only a few weeks ago occurred the mysterious death of Louis Friedman. Yet how seldom is it thought of. It will be remembered that he left his place of business after supper, ostensibly to go to the post office. The next day he was found in a lonely spot in the cemetery with a bullet in his brain. Miss Sadie Aldridge, his mistress, was arrested on the charge of having murdered him, but after a lengthy investigation she was discharged, there being but little proof to sustain the charge. Public opinion was divided as to her guilt, the majority believing her innocent. Various theories were advance but none accorded with the facts so far as known, and the mystery of Louis Friedman’s death was classed with the large number which shall be revealed only in the last day.

Interest in this matter has again been aroused by the arrest Tuesday evening of Sadie Aldridge by U. S. Marshal, Pat Punch, on a charge of having illegally obtained and destroyed letters belonging to another. It seems that shortly before the death of Friedman he had made arrangements to marry a woman in Cincinnati, a proceeding to which Miss Aldridge was violently opposed. About this time she frequently called at the post office for Friedman’s mail, until the officials were notified by Friedman not to let her have it. It is charged that she broke open and destroyed these letters. An official of the Post office Department has been here some time working up the case and the arrest was the result of his work.

Fry, John Lyle The death of J.L. Fry, and elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian church, brings to remembrance the fact that the mortality among the members of the church as compared with their number has been greater than among those of any other denomination.The Winchester Democrat   Friday, January 10, 1896Death of John Lyle Fry

John Lyle Fry died at his home at Hedges Tuesday night after a lingering illness. The funeral was preached at the Cumberland Presbyterian church this city yesterday morning by Revs. J.A. Francis and C.B. Clark, and the remains were buried in the cemetery here with Masonic honors. He was about sixty five years of age and had lived all his life in this native county. When the C & O road was built through this county he was the first agent appointed at Hedges, a position he has held ever since. For many years he had been an Elder in the Cumberland Presbyterian church at Sugar Ridge. His wife, who was Miss Clark, survives him, together with an adopted daughter, Mrs. Chester Banks. He was a son of the late Greenberry Fry and of a large family of brothers and sisters and only two survive, George Fry and Mrs. Thomas Ramsey. It is probable that Mr. Banks will succeed him as agent at Hedges.

Obituary

John Lyle Fry

Died, January 7, 1896. The subject of this sketch was born in Clark county, Kentucky, April 26, 1829 and resided her the greatest portion of his life. He was an efficient, esteemed member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church, an upright, honest citizen, a devoted husband, a loving brother, and a zealous supporter of the Masonic Fraternity. Thus the “scythe of time” has again passed within the “mystic tie” and family circle and cut the brittle thread of life, and our brother, a worthy Master Mason, has gone to rest in the stilly shades and join those gathering in that celestial Lodge governed by the Worshipful Master of the universe. The sun had sunk beneath the western horizon; his golden bars were still lingering on the fleecy clouds when the silent messenger of death came to summons our brother home. Death, the silent reaper, is solemn in any form or at any age, solemn – when in the tender years of infancy it blights the opening bud of a human being; solemn – when it withers the vigor of manhood or darkens the noon-day sun of a human soul solemn – when it breaks the vibrating chords of a human life. We are reminded how frail is man, how passing short is life, “today he puts forth the tender leaves of home, tomorrow bears his blushing honors, next day comes a frost and nips the shoot, and while he thinks his greatness still aspiring falls like autumn leaves to enrich the ground.” We gaze from the cradle and listen to the soothing songs of mother, then the dawn of life opens with bright prospects, flowers bloom and blossom along the pathway, but soon some prove to be only thorns and thistles. Happiness exists for a season and gives place to sorrow, old age lingers on for awhile, decline is rapid, a life is ended.

Fry, Mrs. Peter Mr. A. C. Ward left yesterday for Greencastle, Ind., to attend the funeral of his sister, Mrs. Peter Fry, who dropped dead in that city, on Wednesday last. She was a native of this county, as was her husband.The Semi-Weekly Sun     Fri., 2-7-1879
Fry, Mrs. S. Annie E. Our conception of death differ according to the standpoint from which we view it. To some it is an entrance into a dark, mysterious realm from which they would fain escape were it possible. To others it is the end of existence both physical and spiritual. To others it is a transition from a world, pleasant enough in many things, yet marred by pain and sorrow, to a brighter realm where all is joy and peace eternal. To the latter class belonged Mrs. S. Annie Fry, who passed away at an early hour Sunday morning. For a long time she had been in poor health and had suffered more than usually falls to the lot of man or woman, but she bore all with uncomplaining fortitude and always with a smile for those around her. She had so lived that there was nothing terrible in death and she made preparations therefore as for a pleasant journey. Her life was a continual sermon to those around her.She was forty nine years old, a native of this county, and a daughter of Wm. Scott. Her mother was a Miss Spahr. Two brothers, Squire T. J. Scott, of this county and Wm. Scott of Lexington, alone survive of her family. Her only child, a bright little boy, died many years ago. A third of a century ago she was married to George Fry and since that time their lives had been a continued courtship.Shortly after her marriage she united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church and the church has had no more earnest, conscientious member. She was prominent in all work and especially in Mission work. For years she was Secretary of the presbyterial work for the State Presbytery.The funeral was preached yesterday afternoon at the Cumberland Presbyterian church by Rev. L. D. Beck assisted by Revs. C. B. Clark and W. T. Bolling. The church was bright with flowers and buds, that being her idea of a Christian funeral.

A friend thus beautifully speaks of her character:

“In every relation of life Mrs. Fry was staunch and loyal, bright, cheerful and affectionate; guileless herself, and suspecting no guile in others, her nature was singularly gentle, trusting and clinging and no one could know her without feeling her great fascination and learning to love her devotedly. A devout member of the Presbyterian church she never faltered in health or sickness in her religious duties. Ever ready to rejoice with those whose hearts were glad and to give a tear of sympathy, a cheering word to those whose burdens were heavy. No words of sympathy and condolence, however sincerely uttered, can fully comfort the hearts most deeply wounded, but all have the consolation in knowing that they are blessed who die in the Lord. If it is permitted to angel spirits to visit earth unseen and hover near those they loved, then will this devoted wife be ever around and near her husband, guiding him safely, gently and well.”

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, May 15, 1894

 

Resolutions of Respect

Fry.—Whereas, it has pleased our Heavenly Father to remove from this Missionary Society our beloved sister and President, Mrs. Annie E. Fry, on the morning of May 13th, 1894, be it

Resolved, that we bow in humble submission to the will of Him, who doeth all things wisely and well.

2nd, that in the death of Mrs. Fry, the “Sugar Ridge Auxiliary,” of the Woman’s Board of Missions, has sustained an irreparable loss.

3rd. “We also bear record to her loyalty, and devotion to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, whose doctrines she firmly upheld, and whose cause was nearest her heart, through a consecrated, earnest worker in any part of the Master’s Vineyard. To know , and to do His will, was her greatest desire and her sweetest pleasure.

4th. That we pray god to give us more like her, for the good of the Missionary cause, for the church, and for the community, all having been made better by her pure, quiet, consistent, Christian life.

5th. That we tender to the husband, and relatives of our departed sister, our deepest sympathy in this sad dispensation of Providence, and commend them to Jesus, her comforter, who has said “Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.”

6th. That a copy of these resolutions be furnished for publication in the Cumberland Presbyterian and The Winchester Democrat, also, a copy be furnished to the family.

2nd. That we realize we have lost a true and noble friend, one who has so often met with us and by her devoted, Christian character won the love and admiration of all.

3rd. That we try to imitate her examples of loving kindness, gentle forbearance and humble devotion to Christ.

4th. That we extend to the husband and family our heartfelt sympathy and ask God to bless them in their great bereavement.

Fugate, Nathan While on a general drunk, on Troublesome creek in Breathitt county, Saturday, George Allen shot and killed Nathan Fugate, John Nix was fatally shot by John Campbell and Ethan Combs was shot through the thigh by Beull Combs.The Winchester Democrat     Wed. 7-30-1890Last July, George Allen, of Breathitt county, shot and killed his neighbor, Nathan Fugate. No more blood was shed until about two weeks ago when Shade Combs, an uncle of George Allen, together with a couple more Combs, were returning from a logging expedition and passed near a saloon where a shooting match was in progress. Among those present were James Miller and James Fugate, the later a brother of the murdered Nathan Fugate. Miller and Fugate had been drinking and the old quarrel was speedily renewed and Combs was shot by Miller from the effects of which he died last Sunday. Warrants were issued for Miller and Fugate, who defied arrest. Sheriff Cope and deputies Breck Combs, Jerry Cardwell and J. B Stern went to arrest them. The fugitives were warned by a woman of the approach of the Sheriff’s posse and made a break for the bushes, firing at the officers as they ran. The latter also fired and Miller fell, his jaw being shattered by a rifle ball. Fugate made good his escape. The fight is not likely to lead to anything like a war as the Breathitt county woods are full of Combs and the family element is too strong to resist. Combs was a member of Morgan’s cavalry and was, in consequence known as “Rebel” Shade. He was one of the leading Democrats of that section of the State and was well known here.
