Jackson, Bob                           AA He needed hanging

Last week we referred to the barbarous manner in which Bob Jackson, a fifteen-year-old negro boy of Waco, Madison county, was hung nearly to death by some white men merely for sport. This week Jackson struck an eight year old boy on the head with a slab fracturing his skull and inflicting a fatal wound. Perhaps it would have been better had the white boys left Jackson hanging while they had him strung up.

Jackson, Durrett Wanted to Marry

Durrett Jackson, son of Perry Jackson, of the Bobtown locality, was here Wednesday, claiming to have received divine command to marry a prominent and wealthy young lady of this county. He said that unless he married her there would be a big scandal in Jerusalem. Fancying that Attorney Green Clay stood in the way of the union, he called to see that gentleman, but friends had warned Clay of the fellow’s evil design and he avoided him. Strange to say, Jackson has never seen the object of his infatuation, having only heard that she is wealthy. He was tried yesterday and ordered to the asylum, where he has been twice before.—Richmond Register.

Jackson, French Gay A Sad Accident.

A sad accident which robbed a widowed mother of her baby, although he was twelve years old, occurred Tuesday night. That day French Gay Jackson, the little son of Mrs. Grant Jackson, went with a number of boys on a fishing excursion to the Kentucky river. In his enthusiasm he went without his breakfast and also ate no dinner. Returning at a late hour, tired and empty, he complained of a severe toothache, for which his mother gave him a small dose of paregoric. They both went to sleep, but about midnight she was awakened by his heavy breathing. Medical aid was summoned and all was done that was possible, but all in vain, and he died about five o’clock next morning. It was found that he had taken more of the medicine during the night, and this added to his exhausted condition and empty stomach, caused a fatal result of what, under ordinary circumstances, would not have been injurious.   The funeral services were held at the family residence yesterday afternoon by Rev. H. G. Henderson. The bereaved family have the sympathy of all.

Jackson, Henry City Man Dies In Fire At Home

An 83-year old man, Henry Jackson, was found burned to death at his home Thursday at 5:30 p.m. at 16 Denny Avenue. Coroner James W. Bean said Jackson died from suffocation and burns.

City Fire Chief Elliott Ecton said Jackson, who was paralyzed was found on the floor near a bed that was destroyed by fire. He said Jackson had apparently been smoking a pipe, and sparks caught the bedding afire.

The mishap was discovered by Jackson’s son, Charles.   When firemen arrived at the scene, the son was trying to extinguish the burning clothing worn by his father.

The fire was contained to the bed and nothing else was damaged in the two-story frame house.   Charles Jackson told firemen that he was upstairs and did not discover the fire until too late.

In addition to the son, survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Savannah Bowell, Newark, N.J. and another son, John Jackson, Covington.

In the death of this estimable lady a void has been left in the society of which she was an honored member, and in the church of which she had been a member for upwards of thirty years past. In early life she united with the Christian Church, and had ever been a pious and consistent member thereof. Her home, both in her own and in the lifetime of her deceased husband, the late Col. T. T. Jackson, was the abode of a refined and generous hospitality. Her devotion to her church was pre-eminent; she had an abiding faith in the atonement of the Savior, and in the blessed promises and hopes of the Resurrection to come. To her children and her surviving relations and friends she has left a bright example.   May they profit by it, and be consoled in the reflection that their loss has been her eternal gain.

Jackson, Mrs. William At Greenup a human devil named Wm. Jackson poisoned his wife, and was aided by his mother in holding the suffering, writhing woman on the floor in her death struggle. A gag is said to have been forced in her mouth by Jackson to prevent her moans of pain and screams beyond the walls of her own house. In this condition, flat upon her back, gagged and held down by the brutal, fiendish husband and his mother, the poor woman died.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, July 3, 1894

 

AT Greenup, Saturday, William Jackson was sent to the penitentiary for ninety-nine years for murdering his wife last June. He wanted a divorce in order to marry another woman, and failing in this he effected a reconciliation with his wife, and under pretense of giving her headache medicine he gave her strychnine.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, November 13, 1894.

 

At Greenup the Circuit Court granted William Jackson, convicted of wife murder and sentenced to the penitentiary for ninety-nine years, a new trial on the ground that one of the jurors in the case had his mind made up when accepted. The juror had openly said that Jackson ought to be mobbed.

Jackson, S. Grant The death of Capt. J. L. Wheeler brings to mind the fact that death is fast decimating the ranks of the Muckletonian Club, at one time the most prominent hunting and fishing club of the South. It was organized in 1872 with eighteen of the most prominent men of Winchester and vicinity as members. In addition to scores of minor trips they occasionally went on more extensive ones to Florida, Arkansas, the Pacific Slope, etc. These trips were truly days of true pleasure and good fellowship. Not a word of discord ever marred the harmony of their meetings. Col. R. N. Winn was the first President and still fills that position, although the remaining members are so few and scattered that the meetings of late years have been few. The first member die was John J. Eubank, followed in succession by Ben P. Goff, S. Grant Jackson, M. G. Taylor, Jas. D. Gay, David A. Gay, D. T. Buckner, John W. Prewitt, John A. Judy and J. L. Wheeler. The surviving members are r. N. Winn, Leeland Hathaway, J. D. Simpson, A. H. Sympson, and T. F. Phillips, of this city; Geo. R. Snyder and R. J. Snyder, of Louisville and Sam McKee, of Philadelphia. Ten have passed over the dark river while eight await the summons to join their comrades on the other side.

Jackson, Scott Hanged

Scott Jackson and Alonzo Walling were hung at Newport Saturday in the presence of a large crowd for the murder of Pearl Bryan a year ago. The evidence was wholly circumstantial, but the particulars of the crime, especially that the fact that the dead woman’s head had been cut off, were so horrifying that the death penalty was awarded by the jury. They were both hardened wretches and neither had at time shown any remorse or sorrow. In fact, they have at all times denied all knowledge of it. Friday they made a joint confession, implicating Dr. Wagner who is now in the Lexington Insane Asylum. The execution was set for Saturday morning, but was postponed for several hours as Jackson that morning had confessed that Walling was innocent. Gov. Bradley was informed by telegraph and said that Jackson would have to give facts and particulars, instead of merely stating his opinion before he would interfere. This Jackson would not do, and in a short while he said this confession was false and only made it to gain time.

Before being taken to the scaffold they said the confession implicating Dr. Wagner was false and was made to influence the Governor. They both died game and both, at the last moment, said they were not guilty. A part of their last night was spent in playing cards after which they slept the remainder of the time. Until morning Jackson’s body was refused burial at Greencastle, Ind., and his mother had it cremated.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, March 23, 1897

 

One of the deputies at the hanging of Jackson and Walling says that Jackson’s mother told him to die game and not to tell anything.

Jackson, Thomas E. The murderous fight, in which poor Tom Jackson was killed, ought to make everybody realize that Gov. Lowry was right when he took such pains to have the law against prize fighting executed. Many good people allow their feelings to get away with them and they go to see or encourage by their approval such disgusting exhibitions of brutality without thinking of the consequences to the young and thoughtless elements of society. Young Jackson had courage and fortitude of a rare quality and would have been a valuable and successful man could he have been restrained until age had given him better control of his facilities. He died gallantly but in vain, unless it be to teach a lesson which will bring the authorities to a fuller realization of their obligation to suppress every attempt in the future to give such exhibitions. His father and mother have the heartfelt sympathy of their old friends and neighbors in their affliction.

Thomas E. Jackson a young man aged eighteen years was so badly beaten in a prize fight with Ed. Ahearn, another young man at St. Louis last Wednesday that he died next morning from concussion of the brain. The fight was an exceedingly bloody one. The dead boy was a son of Geo. M. Jackson formerly of this city and for several years past a local politician of that city. Ahearn has been arrested on a charge of murder and his seconds were also arrested as accessories. The body of the unfortunate lad was brought to this city for interment by his father.   The funeral services at the grave were conducted by Rev. W. F. Taylor.

Later: At his examining trial, Ahearn was held without bail and the seconds and referee were admitted to bail as accessories.

He Was a Picturesque Figure During the Civil War.

Louisville, Ky., Sept. 14.—Col. R. T. Jacob, a picturesque figure during the civil war, died at his home in this city Sunday. Col. Jacob was 78 years old and was widely known as the man who saved Kentucky from secession and site as the captor of Gen. John Morgan.

Col. Jacob’s career began with a trip across the plains in 1865. He crossed in time to join Fremont’s command for service during the Mexican war. Returning to Kentucky he was elected to the legislature as a democrat. The secession question came before the legislature and Col. Jacob created surprise by refusing to vote with the Breckinridge party, his vote giving a plurality of one for the unionists against secession. When active hostilities opened Col. Jacob organized the 9th Kentucky (union) cavalry. He participated in the smashing of Morgan’s raid, and it was to Col. Jacob and his command that the confederate leader and a number of his followers surrendered. Near the close of the war Col. Jacob became lieutenant governor of Kentucky.

Col. Jacob’s wife, Sarah Braden, daughter of Thomas H. Braden, died many years ago.

He had a stone cut in the shape of an old fashioned traveling satchel. On the plate in the center of each side is the name “J. S.” above the name is this inscription: “Here is where he stopped last.” Underneath the name is the date of death and his age. The stone is white marble and the base is a big boulder which the father hauled from his farm and rolled on the grave. When questioned as to why he chose such a unique design, the old man said: “Well, Jim he were a sort of a rovin’ feller and I allowed that this design would ‘bout suit him. He never stopped very long before in any one place. But the last time I see him he were at the graveyard, and I jes concluded that he might stay thar a long while. So I had a sign printed on the stone sayin’ whar he war last seen and whar he ought to be now.”

James, C. H. SERIOUS accidents are becoming quite common on the railroads near here. On Sunday afternoon, C. H. James, a brakeman on the K. C. road, was caught between the cars while coupling and his life was crushed out in an instant. But little was known of him as he was a new man on the road, the only clue to his residence being a letter from his mother in Pennsylvania. Coroner Alexander held an inquest which exonerated the railroad and its employees from any blame in regard to this accident.

James, William                       AA Killed while Asleep.

Tuesday at 2:20 a. m. Will James colored, was killed on the L. & N. railroad siding near the electric light plant. From the evidence before the coroner’s jury it appears that James had been drinking and was asleep under a box car on the siding when the through north-bound freight stopped to take on the empties. Both legs and the left arm were broken and he was also injured internally. His home was at Grassy Lick. The following is the verdict of the coroner’s jury:

We, the jury, reviewed the remains of William James, (of color), and find that he came to his death by going to sleep under an empty box car standing on the L. & N. switch, when a northbound freight without knowing he was under the car, in backing in on the switch to pick up other empty cars, ran over him causing his death. We exonerate the railroad company from all blame, it being under circumstances purely an unavoidable accident. J. H. Croxton, Joseph Jones, G. L. Gatson, Fred W. Owen, G. G. Wilson, R. H. Jones.

Jameson, Robert CIRCUIT COURT   The case of Welsey and William Whitaker was called last week but continued until this week as the counsel had been selected as special Judge and special Commonwealth’s Attorney respectively at the Hazard Circuit Court and could not be here. The defendant’s were allowed until Monday to get ready and the trial is now in progress. Wesley and William Whitaker, the defendants, are charged with the murder of Robert Jameson, or Robert Deheart, as he was commonly called. The case as stated by the Commonwealth and fairly well supported by the evidence, much of which is circumstantial is about as follows.   Several years ago Wesley Whitaker committed a criminal assault on Mrs. Deheart, the wife of the murdered man for which he was indicted. Some time after this Whitaker and Deheart arose from his bed about daylight and as he went out of the door he was shot from a clump of bushes on the side of an adjacent hill. A short time previous to the killing the Whitakers had borrowed a gun from a neighbor and at the same time took a handkerchief of peculiar character from the house. This handkerchief was afterwards found at the place where the assassins evidently stood. Tracks showed that it was done by two persons and it is said that the Whitakers afterward boasted of the deed. There is evidently a lot of first class lying being done by some of the witnesses, and we will not venture to predict the verdict of the jury. Wesley Whitaker is either a very bad man or he has been badly maligned. Several indictments for criminal assault or detaining women, for murder, etc., are found among the records. He was a prominent warrior of the Eversole army during the troublesome times in Perry county and is regarded as one of the most dangerous men in the lot.

The Democrat, Wednesday, November 11, 1891.

 

Two indictments were found against Joe Miniard in Laurel county for forgery. Miniard was brought here recently as a witness in the Whitaker cases and it is believed by many that he was their companion when Jamison was killed. When arrested for forgery he struck the Sheriff a terrific blow on the head with a rock and would have escaped had not another officer been near.

Free again

Wesley and Will Whittaker pardoned by Governor Bradley

Among the many pardons that have been granted by Gov. Bradley many have been worse than those granted Monday to Will and Wesley Whittaker. In 1880 Robert Jameson, of Perry county was shot and killed. Those were troublesome times in Perry county, being the height of the French-Eversole war. The officers of the law were either unable or unwilling to execute the law and in a few years a score or two of men were killed. Most of these murders were cold blooded assassinations and but few fell in open encounters. After awhile the violence of this warfare abated somewhat and the Grand jury of that county found a number of indictments. Among those indicted were Wesley Whittaker and his brother Will, the latter but a boy at the time Jameson was killed. As Perry county was just emerging from a state of anarchy and lawlessness, and it was felt that justice could not be meted out either in Perry or neighboring counties, a special act of the Legislature transferred all these cases to this county. Whether or not the killing of Jameson grew directly out of the leading feud, Wesley Whittaker cast his lot with the Eversoles and was a very prominent member of that faction. In consequence, when his trial came up here in the latter part of 1891 the State was assisted by Mr. French, who prosecuted most vigorously. For some reason the Eversoles weakened at a critical moment and the Whittakers were left without support. Without money, in a strange county, with the State and a powerful faction combined on the other side, conviction was not a surprise and a life sentence for both was the result. There was but little evidence against Will and had he asked a separate trial he would have been cleared, but he preferred to be tried with his brother in order to save the latter’s life, which he probably did. The pardon on Will has been expected and desired for several years. Wesley was a bad man and after conviction he made a full confession to representatives of The Democrat in which he acknowledged to participating in a number of the murders committed during the reign of terror in that part of the State. As the Whittakers were the only ones convicted of all those sent here for trial, many have thought that they too should be allowed to go free. They have improved much in looks since their incarceration and Will has grown into quite a handsome man. They were her for awhile Tuesday, but left for Owsley county where they will reside.

Jarvis and Kendall Shooting REV. J. S. KENDRICK closed a meeting at Newtown Scott county, Thursday night with fifteen additions. He was standing by the side of John Jarvis, when he was killed, and by the request of Burrell Jarvis, the other man who was shot, he baptized him. The excitement consequent upon the various tragedies about Georgetown caused the closing of the meeting at Newtown.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 2, 1891.

 

A SHOOTING affray occurred at Georgetown, Thursday resulting in the killing of three men, one of them who had nothing to do with the trouble, being killed in his own door.   Milton H. Kendall and four sons live in Scott county and adjoining them live Mrs. Jarvis and three sons.   Old man Kendall’s watermelon patch robbed and he claimed he tracked the culprits to Mrs. Jarvis’ and three sons.   Some trouble resulted and the Jarvises got out a writ for the Kendall’s. Thursday was set for the trial and when the parties met a fight occurred in which two of the Jarvis boys were killed. One of the latter in trying to escape, ran into the store of A. J. Montgomery, a hardware merchant, who was standing in the door.   A shot from the elder Kendall at the fleeing Jarvis, struck Montgomery killing him at once. The Kendall’s at first resisted arrest but afterward surrendered and were placed in jail. Kendall was formerly a resident of Bourbon county where he owned 500 acres of fine land, but moved to Scott several years ago. He was for some years Chairman of the Democratic County Committee of Scott county.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 2, 1891.

 

The Kendall’s who shot the Jarvis boys at Georgetown waived examination and the cases will go before the grand jury which is now in session. George Kendall, on of the boys will be remembered here, as he was arrested here a few years ago for steeling a horse in Scott county. The cost was a plain one but his attorneys succeeded in making the jury believe he was insane and he just managed to miss the penitentiary. The old man was here a week or two at the same time.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 9, 1891.

 

An indictment for manslaughter was returned Thursday in the Scott county Circuit Court against Milton H. Kendall, Sr., for the shooting of Burrell Jarvis, and two indictments against Milton H. Kendall, Sr., Milton H. Kendall Jr., Geo. Boot and Papsy Kendall for killing A. J. Montgomery.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 16, 1891.

 

THE Kendalls who were confined in the Georgetown jail for the murder of Montgomery and Jarvis, broke jail Monday evening and escaped. They got out through the place where the murderer True sawed the iron bars that guarded the windows. They had been riveted, and with a pen knife and a brick they worked out the rivets. They are heavily armed and say they will not be taken alive. They also say they will finish killing the Jarvis family. The old man Milton Kendall was sick in bed and unable to escape.   Crowds of armed citizens are after them, and a desperate fight is expected when they are overtaken.

The Democrat, Wednesday, November 11, 1891.

 

MILT KENDALL, JR., who was tried here four or five years ago for horse stealing and acquitted on the grounds of insanity was acquitted of the killing of the Jarvis’ at Georgetown, His father, Milt Kendall, Sr., was sent to the penitentiary for two years for the same offense.

The Democrat, Wednesday, March 16, 1892.

 

At Georgetown, Milt Kendall, Jr., was acquitted of the murder of John Jarvis last year.   “Boots” Kendall, a brother, who was charged with the same crime, but who escaped from Georgetown jail last November, came in and gave himself up and was also acquitted. The location of the other Kendall boys is not known.

The Democrat, Wednesday, September 14, 1892.

 

BURRELL JARVIS, who was sent to the penitentiary for three years from Scott county for participation in the famous street duel between the Jarvis’ and Kendalls, escaped from the pen Thursday. He was a trusty.

The Kentuckian Citizen says: “Dr. Current, of this city, after an untiring search for eight months, has at last found the lease in favor of the Jarvis heirs, of Rowan county. Said lease was made in 1800 for a term of one hundred years, and contains about 80 acres of lands in the central and eastern part of Cincinnati, supposed to be worth at least ten million dollars. The Doctor has the power of attorney to sue or compromise, as he wishes, and is to have half for his trouble in hunting the lease. He has engaged the best law firm in Cincinnati to prosecute the case, and will begin at once as they think he is a sure winner.”

A Disorderly Man Shot and Killed at Camp Nelson Cemetery.

Nicholasville, Ky., May 31.-Five hundred frenzied Negroes surrounding the body of Rice Jennings and vowing vengeance on Lieut. Moss was the closing scene of the memorial day services at the National cemetery in Camp Nelson Friday. Lieut. Moss had just arrested a white man of the name of Pollard, when Capt. May the keeper of the cemetery, sent a messenger to Moss, asking the arrest of Jennings, who was drunk and firing his pistol. Just as the word reached Moss the Negro passed, and Moss ordered one of the deputies to arrest him. Jennings drew his revolver and defied him. Moss then turned his prisoner over to the deputy, and started toward the negro, who leveled his pistol and snapped it at Moss. Moss drew his revolver and fired at Jennings. The first shot struck Jennings in the left hand and ranged up the arm. The second shot from Moss’ pistol struck Jennings in the arm, and the third pierced the heart. Lieut. Moss immediately surrendered to County Attorney Mitchell, and was placed under guard. Jennings home is in Lancaster.

A GOOD illustration of the value of life insurance was the case of Hiram Jett, who died recently of typhoid fever. He insured his life for $ 2,500 a short time previous to his fatal illness, and before the first payment was due he was dead. The papers have been fixed up and his family will receive the money shortly.

In the case of Bob Griggs and the estate of Hiram Jett the jury decided in favor of the estate for about $ 200.

Bob Griggs, who the jury adjudged should pay a note for two hundred dollars held by the estate of the late Hiram Jett.

The Democrat, Wednesday, March 22, 1893.

 

New trials were asked for by Miss Nancy Jones, whose claim against the estate of the late Jonathan Trowbridge was not allowed by the jury and by Bob Griggs, who the jury adjudged should pay a note for two hundred dollars held by the estate of the late Hiram Jett.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, March 29, 1893

 

A most interesting and complicated case occupied the attention of the Court a day or two this week, F. Bush Hodgkin acting as special Judge. The administratrix of the late Hiram Jett sued Allen Griggs upon a note of $200 which is said to have been found among Jett’s papers after his death. Griggs acknowledges the signature to the note as genuine, but claims the body of the note was raised from $2.10 to the amount claimed. To refute this a note of nearly the same date and for the latter amount was produced by Mrs. Jett. The signature to this Griggs says is forged. After occupying the attention of the court a day or two the defendant filed affidavit to show that certain jurors had been talking about the case before it was finally submitted and that they had expressed opinions. Counter affidavits were filed by the other side, and after due consideration, Judge Hodgkins overruled the objections of the defendants but at this point it was agreed by both sides that the matter should go over until the October term, which   was done. The case had been tried once before when a verdict was rendered for the plaintiff, which Judge Nelson set aside and granted a new trial.

The Court of Appeals on Thursday, by Judge O’Rear, affirmed the Breathitt Circuit Court in the case of Sam Jett vs. the farmers Bank of Kentucky. The action involved judgments for three notes of $650 each. One of the grounds relied on for reversal was a statement that appellant had employed J. B. Marcum to file an answer in the case and was not aware that he had not done so until two days before the judgment.   Marcum had left Jackson before the case was called.

Stephen Jett died at his home at Elizabethtown, Tenn., July 27th, of heart failure, aged 55. Mr. Jett was born in Breathitt county; for a number of years he lived in this and Madison county, but for the last fifteen years at the home where he died. His brother, Mr. Sam Jett, of this city, attended the funeral Saturday. Mr. Jett was a leader in good works, was Superintendent of a large Sunday School and had arranged a picnic for the children the day of his death. From accounts in the local papers he was the most popular man in that section of Tennessee. He was successful in business and left a good estate. He built a hotel called the “Kentucky” which is known far and wide. He ran a store and owned valuable real estate. Associated with him in business were his two sons, H. C. and S. S. Jett who will continue his business. His wife and one daughter, Miss Florence, also remain.

The Tennessee Equity closes a column article by saying: “Stephen Jett was a large man, but it took a large body to old so large a heart.”

The death of Mr. Perry Jewell near Sharpsburg last week recalls the romance attached to his wedding over forty years ago. The wedding ceremony was unusual in that the officiating minister stood in one county and the bride and groom in another county during the ceremony. At that time Hinkston Creek, which divides Bath and Nicholas counties, was at high tide from heavy rains, could not be forded, and there were no bridges at that early date. The officiating minister was in Bath county, while the bride and groom stood on the other side in Nicholas county. The groom tied the license to a rock and threw it across to the minister, who there upon pronounced the ceremony.

Joeson, Hugh & family Family of Six – Burned to death in their home near Pineville, Ky.

Pineville, Ky., July 8 – Hugh Joeson and family, who reside about 15 miles northeast of this place, met death in a burning building Tuesday midnight. It is believed the building was set on fire by incendiaries. The following are those who perished in the flame:

Hugh Joeson, the father; Mary Joeson, his wife; Fannie Joeson, a daughter 14 years old; John Joeson, a son 10 years old; a daughter 8 years old; Maggie, a daughter 6 years old.

All were found Wednesday in the burning debris. The family had had some trouble with near neighbors. The Bell circuit court is in session and it will take the proper steps to investigate the matter. The family was prominent, and the case will be investigated by the present grand jury.   It is believed by many citizens of the community that the buildings caught on fire by negligence of the family, who failed to extinguish the kitchen fire when they retired to bed.   The bodies were indistinguishable, but enough was found to show they are the bodies of the Joeson family.

In reversing the verdict of the Grant county jury which gave a verdict for $7,500 damages for the killing of William Johnica, of this city, while working as brakeman on a train, the Court of Appeals says: “In this action for damages for the death of a brakeman who was killed by one of Appellant’s trains, a peremptory instruction should have been given to find for appellant upon the conclusion of appellee’s evidence on the ground that circumstances were merely presented upon which one might theorize as to the cause of the accident, but which did not show with an certainty how it occurred. The burden of proof was upon appellee to make out the case and if upon the evidence of presumption in favor of the conclusion that deceased was killed as claimed by appellee was no stronger than the presumption that he was killed in some other way, there is a failure of proof, and this is the precise question here.”

Col. Craddock writes from the Dallas reunion as follows: “Col. Adam Johnson, who lost his entire eyesight in battle, tells of the Morgan raid in Ohio. He says “When near Cincinnati, Col. Roy Cluke coming up said he would give $1,000 for an hour’s sleep, and I held his horse for that length of time. Col. Cluke was not a robust man, and shortly afterwards died in Johnson Island prison. Col. Johnson gave graphic description of how he and some others swam across the Ohio river.”

(alias Plunkton)

Ben Johnson, of color, (alias Plunkton) was arrested by Marshall Johnson yesterday afternoon on the charge of attempting to commit an assault on a Miss Ball, daughter of Pomp Ball, of Pinchem, who was riding along the road about 10 o’clock that morning.   He made a desperate attempt to escape when arrested but was finally lodged in jail to await his examining trial at 10 o’clock this morning. Great excitement prevailed last night and threats of lynching were heard on all sides.   In case he is identified by the young lady as the guilty party it will require the greatest effort to prevent his being summarily dealt with.

The Clark County Democrat     Wed., 3-24-1880

 

LYNCH LAW

Ben Johnson, of color, alias Plunkton, taken from jail at midnight, and hanged to a Maple tree in the Courthouse yard.

In our last issue we gave an account of the arrest of Ben Johnson, of color, better known as Plunkton, for attempting to commit an assault on Miss Annie Ball, of Pinchem.   Judging from the excited state of the popular feeling about the matter, we predicted that he would be lynched, and in case he was identified by the young lady next day, and this prediction proved to be correct. At 10 o’clock on Wednesday morning, Plunkton was brought before Judge Allen, and to make sure of his identity, three other Negroes were seated with him.   The case opened and no sooner had Miss Ball entered the court room than she pointed him out. This aroused the excitement of the large crowd to the highest pitch, and threats of speedy vengeance were   audibly heard, but the trial was allowed to go on. The young lady stated that she had been in town Tuesday morning shopping, and had seen the Negro Plunkton at Rees’ stable, as she started home. She stopped at Mr. H. W. Kohlhass’ to fix her satchel, and while engaged in doing this he passed her, walking rapidly out the two-mile road. When she had gotten over the hill near Capt. Pendleton’s, the Negro sprang from the roadside and seized her horse by the bridle.   She screamed and struck at him several times with her whip. He then attempted to pull her from the horse, but she struck at him across the face with her whip, and after a determined effort made her escape.   Sanford Wills, of color, testified to Plunkton’s being at the stable on the morning in question. Marshall Johnson testified to the arrest of Plunkton and his desperate efforts to escape. No testimony was introduced by the defendant, and he was held over to circuit court in the sum of $1,000. It required the greatest coolness and bravery on the part of the officers to get the prisoner back to jail without having him strung up or carved into mince meat by the indignant populace. Even the better class of his own race wanted the Judge to place Plunkton in their hands for punishment. It became very evident during the evening that no power could save him. The roads were watched and he could not have been taken to another town, and no citizen of either color could be found who was willing to risk his life in a futile attempt to guard the life of so depraved a villain, but it must be said that the officers did their whole duty.

The night wore away quietly until about half-past eleven o’clock, when a number of masked men came into town from several directions, and at the signal, a pistol shot, orders were given to put out all the lights, and a rush was made for the jail.   The jailer and Marshall were overpowered and compelled to deliver Ben Plunkton to them. The other prisoners were not disturbed.

A rope was placed around his neck while he was being dragged from the jail, and his hands were tightly pinioned behind him. The doomed Negro yelled “Fire, fire, murder, murder!” a few times, but was speedily throttled, and only a few piteous cries for mercy escaped him.   He was taken across the street to a maple tree in the corner of the Court House yard, and in less time than it takes to write it the rope was thrown over a limb, his body drawn up about two feet from the ground, and he was speedily strangled.

The men who did the hanging were probably not over fifteen in number, but others to the number of forty or fifty were posted around town, and all were armed to the teeth and well disguised. They moved with the greatest alacrity and precision, and the orders were given by the leader to his men by numbers, “No. 4’ being detailed to inform the jailer not to cut the body down until after sunrise.

The party left a little before midnight, but it was after that hour before the ominous echoes of their horses’ hoofs died away on the still night air. There was a terrible earnestness in their movements that showed plainly that they were not to be trifled with, and while mob law is deprecated by all good citizens, yet in an instance of this kind Kentuckians always make short work of the guilty parties. Nowhere in the world is female virtue and purity more highly esteemed or more zealously guarded than in Kentucky, and woe to him, whether he be white or black, who attempts to commit an outrage so shocking to all law and principle.

We went to the cell of the doomed Negro about dark, in order to obtain his statement of the case.   He did not appear to realize the danger impending, and denied to the last that he was the guilty party. His restless air when closely questioned, and the transparent manner in which his excuses were given, did not, however, tend to lessen the opinion of his guilt. He claimed to have been elsewhere at the time, but his identification by the young lady was so clear and positive, and the circumstantial evidence so convincing, that but little doubt was left as to his being the criminal.   From all we can learn the regulators did not attempt to secure a confession or denial from him, so well were they convinced of his guilt.

His body was cut down about 6:30 o’clock Thursday morning, and an inquest held thereon in the court house by Coroner Parrish and a jury. The body was greatly swollen, but his neck was drawn to less than half the usual size where the rope (a small plow line) passed around. He was about 21 years old and had previously borne a very bad character even by his own people, many of whom were loud in their denunciation of his attempted crime. Not one of them would assist in his burial. Since his death it has transpired that Plunkton was compelled to flee for his life from Mt. Sterling sometime back for perpetrating an outrage on a little Negro girl, whose relatives then tried to kill him.

The excitement in town has abated to some extent, but the terrible lesson taught by the tragic death of Ben Plunkton will be a warning for years to come to evil doers of both colors.

The general verdict of the press and the people everywhere is “Served him right.”

Johnson, Ezekiel A Queer Funeral Service

The Funeral on Jett’s Creek, in this county, the 5th, 6th and 7th inst., was in some respects the most remarkable on record. Ezekiel Johnson, a boy 13 years old, son of Esq., Elisha Johnson, also a minister in the Baptist church, was corrected by his father the 9th of April, 1889, and was sent to the field to plow in oats. In about an hour his father missed him and went in search of his son and found him suspended by the neck from a leaning tree on the mountain side outside of the field, dead. Friday, the 5th inst., the funeral of the boy was preached on the mountain side where the boy hanged himself. The father had the clothes which his son wore when he hung himself stuffed with straw, with the hat and shoes on, making the effigy look everything like the boy. This effigy was hung from the same tree by the same rope on which the boy hung. In the presence of this spectacle the ministers conducted religious services on Friday. About three hundred yards from this is the grave of the boy, over the grave is a little house built, and upon this house was stretched a canvas upon which was written in large letters a conversation the boy had with his sisters the day before he committed suicide. Among other things he wished Revs. Miller and Taylor to preach his funeral and his sisters to come of evenings and sing at his grave. Saturday and Sunday the services were conducted in the bottom four or five hundred yards from the scene of the hanging. The crowds were large each day, but on Sunday there were 1,500 people present. Such as assembly had never before convened in Breathitt county. Just at the close of the third day’s service the affray occurred in which Andy Palmer was shot and killed.—Jackson Hustler.

Johnson, F. M. DIED-At Kansas City, Mo., of disease of the liver, Dr. F. M. Johnson, aged 65 years. He was the eldest brother of Dr. J. W. Johnson, of this city, and went to Missouri forty-five years ago. He was a surgeon in the Confederate army and at the time of his death was Dean of the Kansas City Medical College.

Johnson, father                     AA Deputy Marshal Evans Shot and Killed at Mt. Sterling.

ANOTHER tragedy occurred at Mt. Sterling Saturday night. A negro named Johnson and a noted tough was raising a row in a saloon when Policemen Charles Evans and Horace Lane went in to arrest him. He fired first at Lane, the ball striking his silver badge just over the heart and glancing off without injury.   Johnson then shot Evans in the groin, inflicting a wound from which he died the next day. The negro was shot in the face and also in the breast and is badly hurt. When Evans died a mob was talked of but the officers prevailed and Judge Cooper will hold a special term June 28th to try Johnson, who will be hung if he don’t die of his wounds.
Evans, the dead policeman, was married last Wednesday to Mrs. Ida Langston, whose first husband was killed several years ago by Sam Everett. A brother of the murdered man lives in this city on Mt. Abbott.

Johnson had only been out of the pen a few weeks where he had been serving a sentence for shooting a negro woman a few years ago.

Henry Watson, the manager of our Telephone Exchange, was fired upon a few nights ago by some unknown party and it is now believed that Johnson was the man, as Watson, while on the police force, shot and killed Johnson’s father.

An indictment was returned against W. D. Clark for killing Garfield Johnson.

The Sun-Sentinel   Thur., April 13, 1905

 

After a few minor cases were disposed of the Commonwealth vs. W. D. Clark was called. By Tuesday night the following jurors had been selected: R. L. Bratton, C. B. Ecton, Jr., L. T. Flynn, Jos. Jones, Clay Skinner, H. A. Rogers, J. W. Butch, J. B. Franklin, F. T. Martin.

On Wednesday morning the following were added: E. B. Dooley, Thos. R. McDonald and Frank Miller.

The prosecution practically rested its case on the evidence of the two eye witnesses, who testified as they had in the examining trial. Mr. Clark’s testimony differed somewhat from theirs. He claims that Johnson tried to draw a weapon before he drew his pistol, and that Johnson, with a stick over his head, was advancing on him when he shot. Late yesterday afternoon the jury was taken down to Mr. Joe Carroll’s barn, the scene of the tragedy.

Johnson, James James Johnson, who was assassinated in Breathitt county last week, was a son of Mrs. Mary Johnson, sister to J. B. Marcum who was assassinated in the Courthouse at Jackson.   About twenty minutes after Marcum was shot Mrs. Johnson said to Curt Jett: “Curt, did you kill my brother?” Jett’s reply was, according to Mrs. Johnson’s testimony in Jett’s trial:   “Yes, I killed him, but it was Hargis’ money that did it.”

The Sun-Sentinel   Thur., April 7, 1904

 

Shot From Ambush.

The Crack of the Assassins Rifle Again Rings Out in Breathitt.

The news dispatches Saturday told of another outbreak of the spirit of assassination in Breathitt.

The story is that Friday evening near the mouth of George’s branch a few miles from Jackson James, Johnson was shot from ambush and killed. The fatal shot was fired, it is alleged, from a Winchester rifle in the hands of “Bummer” Spicer, a cousin of Sheriff Eli Callahan.

Spicer’s father, Roger Spicer, has been engaged in a lawsuit with George Johnson, father of the murdered man, over the title to lands in this county. The Spicer’s were enjoined from cutting timber on the land over a year ago. Johnson alleges that in violation of the injunction Spicer entered the land and cut over 100 trees.

Friday afternoon young Johnson went to the river where Roger Spicer was engaged in rafting the logs. He was informed by Spicer that if he did not go away “pretty quick the boys would put out his light.” He responded that he did not come for trouble, but wanted to remonstrate with them for taking his father’s timber. He turned to go, and had moved but a few steps when a rifle shot rang out from the window of Spicer’s house about 100 yards distant, the ball taking effect in Johnson’s back. He staggered a few feet and sank.

Elijah Roberts, who was rafting timber on the opposite side of the river, says he saw Spicer fire the shot from the window. He rushed over to where Johnson had fallen, and found the man mortally wounded. He sent a messenger to Johnson’s house, and with the assistance of Levi Holland the wounded man was carried to his mother. He died before the arrival of the physician.

Roberts brought the news to Jackson and made the following statement.

“I saw “Bummer’ Spicer with a Winchester poked out of the window in his father’s house. Johnson ran a little piece and fell. I crossed the river to where he was. He begged me piteously not to let them shoot him any more, saying: ‘They have killed me now.”

Young Johnson’s mother is a sister of Attorney J. B. Marcum, who was assassinated in the courthouse doorway in Jackson last May. Spicer is an uncle of Sheriff Ed Callahan, whom the Marcums charge with being accessory to the Marcum assassination.

Mrs. Johnson went before the grand jury at the recent March term to indict the Spicers for confederating. She stated that Roger Spicer had taken an armed mob to her house a few nights previous, carried her husband out and after leading him some distance told him to leave the country. She said they threatened to ambush him if he was ever seen again. He has not returned since. She stated that they had also driven her son off, and that she was living alone and was afraid they would murder her. The grand jury refused to make an indictment. The Commonwealth Attorney was disgusted with the course of the grand jury, and remarked that the evidence indicated that there would be a murder in that neighborhood soon.

George Johnson is supposed to be in Perry County with his son-in-law, who is County Clerk of that county, and one of the most influential men in that section.

The Sun-Sentinel, Thursday, April 7, 1904

 

Out On Bond.

(Columbus Smith or

Christopher Smith)

Desperate Encounter.

For several days the police had been on the lookout for a negro known as Jim Johnson, and Friday night officer Tarpy came across him on North Main street. The policeman caught hold of his arm to place him under arrest when a desperate fight began. The officer tried to use his club, but the negro grabbed it with his left hand and with a razor knife proceeded to carve his antagonist in the most approved style. Fortunately, Mr. Tarpy had on a very heavy overcoat and the weapon did not reach his person. His coat was badly cut in several places. Tarpy then drew his pistol and, as the negro started to run he fired several shots. One struck the fugitive in the calf of his right leg and another struck him about the same place in his left leg. He was arrested and taken to jail, where the jail physician pronounced his situation very serious, as blood poisoning is feared. The prisoner is a desperate scoundrel. His real name is thought to be Columbus Smith, but he now goes by the name of Jim Johnson. He is a native of Alabama and seems to have no permanent home, but goes from place to place. He is wanted in Frankfort for house breaking and the officials think he has been guilty of the same crime here. Two or three years ago he was arrested in this city and taken to Mt. Sterling and from there he was sent to the penitentiary for two years for house breaking. This sentence expired a few months ago. Previous to this sentence he was sent up for life from Bowling Green for murder, but by a misplaced act of executive clemency, he was pardoned.

During the fight he was struck on the head by the policeman’s club, and as we went to press he was thought to be dying from concussion of the brain.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, November 29, 1898

 

The Coroner’s Inquest.

Coroner Wills held an inquest Wednesday afternoon to investigate the death of the negro, who died in jail the previous day. The jury was composed of Vic Bloomfield, Thos. Prewitt, F. T. Martin, C. T. Haggard, J. W. McClure and Dock Pigg, who decided that the man’s real name was Christopher Smith and the wound that caused his death was given by Mr. Tarpy in self defense. All testimony showed him to be a bad, dangerous negro, and while Mr. Tarpy regrets the necessity which caused him to take a human life, he as well as every one else feels that he did only what was necessary to protect his own life.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, December 2, 1898

 

Where the Trouble Lies.

Tuesday morning the remains of James Johnson, the negro prisoner who died in jail the previous night, was taken to the potter’s field for burial. In the midst of a storm of rain and sleet, the coffin without any covering of any kind, with not a single follower, the remains were carried at a rapid gait and hurried into the ground by a few impatient negroes.

When we look at his career, his end was not unexpected. He had sown the wind of a violent life and he reaped the whirlwind of a violent death; settling all law and all officers of the law at defiance he died at the hand of one of the latter as might reasonably have been expected. If what is said of him is true he should have died at the hand of the Sheriff years ago, and thus would the policeman have been saved this job at a later date. It is said that he committed a murder at Bowling Green for which he should have been hung, but as too often the case, the jury, which should have hung him gave him a life sentence in the penitentiary instead. In a few years he was pardoned by Gov. Brown, and a violent and blood thirsty criminal was once more turned loose upon society. That he did not appreciate executive clemency or profit by his punishment is shown by the fact that he was soon again in the penitentiary for violating the law and if he had lived to be an old man the chances are that he would always have been, from choice, a violator of the law.

In this instance as in many others, we know that executive clemency has been misplaced and in such instances we are apt to blame the Governor and him alone. In many cases the censure is right, as when Governor Bradley pardoned a lot of negro ex-convicts just before the election solely that they might vote the Republican ticket here, but in many cases the Chief Ruler of the State is not altogether to blame. A petition for pardon, no matter how atrocious the crime, will find plenty to sign it. Not very long ago an atrocious murder was committed in our own county. One of the participants was sentenced to death and the other to life imprisonment and even while all the circumstances were fresh in the public mind, scores signed a petition for pardon. Many times, men who as jurors and under oath, have said that punishment should be meted out to and offender against the law, will sign a petition for pardon, thus stultifying themselves. Sometimes a man is guilty of crime according to the letter of the law, while according to the spirit, he does not deserve punishment; in such cases executive clemency is well bestowed. This is also true in a few instances where subsequent events change the nature of the case, but usually the criminal deserves all that he gets at the hands of a jury and the man who signs a petition for pardon works a public injury.

This man Johnson, might as easily have cut the throat of Policeman Tarpy as his coat, and had he done so, the people who signed his petition for pardon, and the Governor who pardoned him when serving a merited term for a heinous crime, would have been responsible for the murder of a brave and efficient officer. As it is this officer was forced to take a human life in defense of his own and these people are responsible, in a degree, for the negro’s death. We cannot be too careful how we strive to nullify the just retribution of the law.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, December 2, 1898

 

The Mt. Sterling Sentinel-Democrat says that a brother of the negro Johnson who was killed here last week by Policeman Tarpy, was hung some years ago in that city, for killing Policeman Chas. Evans.

Johnson, Jimmy A Sensational Murder.

Princeton, Ky., Aug. 19.—Thursday afternoon Jimmy Johnson, white, 12 years, and Chas. Wood, a Negro, aged 14, were engaged in a game of marbles and began disputing over the matter when the Negro picked up a rock and advanced toward Johnson, striking him in the back of the head. Johnson fell and died in a second. Officers succeeded in capturing Wood and he was lodged in jail. There is great excitement over the matter owing to the prominence of the Johnson family. It is thought by many that a mob will hang the Negro.

Johnson, John                         AA Perhaps the largest crowd ever in Mt. Sterling was there Friday to see the Negro murderer, John Johnson hung. The train from Lexington and this place was crowded and the number of people there was variously estimated from six to ten thousand. Johnson displayed perfect indifference at all times and even when on the gallows showed no fear. His neck was not broken and he died of strangulation. His crime was the killing of Policeman Charles Evans a couple of months ago while Evans was trying to arrest him.

Johnson, John Albert Prominent man dead

Gov. Johnson, of Minnesota, is dead at a hospital at Rochester that State from the effects of a surgical operation. He was three times elected as a Democratic Governor of a strong Republican state. He was a candidate for President in 1908 and was strongly mentioned as the Democratic candidate in 1912. He is succeeded by Adolphe Eberhart, the Republican Lieutenant Governor. An interesting fact about the latter is that his real name is Olson, but as there were in his town half a dozen or more men of the same name it produced great confusion, especially in the distribution of mail, so when he came to be married he obtained permission from the courts to take his wife’s name by which he has since been known.

Hog Thieves

Shed Mason and John Coons, colored, were tried by Judge Hazelrigg yesterday on the charge of stealing hogs from Henry Williams. They were held to answer at Circuit Court, and in default of $500 bail were sent to jail. The trial developed the fact that Luther Johnson, who was killed by a train a few days ago, was with them when the hogs were stolen, and while there was no proof of the fact, the officers were satisfied that the thieves were together on a chicken stealing expedition the night Johnson was killed.—Mt.

Johnson, Webb Jr. In Memory of Little Web Johnson, Who Departed this life, Jan. 13, 1898

Like a lily in a garden, where there’s come no frost or blight,

Like a dew-drop in a calyx, sparkling in the cool of night,

Like a sun-beam in its brightness, that’s just slanting from the skies.

So our darling in his beauty, he the pride of all our eyes.

 

In the music of the house-hold, in the duo sweet and fair,

There’s a chord that’s lost and broken, ‘tis his footstep on the stair,

One sings awhile yet with us, but with harp and golden lyre,

Our little Web is singing in the Father’s ransomed choir.

 

In his dreams he talked of Grandpa, who had just gone on before,

Asked if that were Mamma playing in the parlor down below,

Who shall say what restful music reached the weary sufferer’s head,

Who shall say what angel chorus sang of peace above his bed?

 

Toys are scattered through the play room, there are pictures everywhere,

Do not try to re-arrange them, they are sacred, leave them there,

Their the pencil and the paper, the horse that he just drew,

From the world and men and nature he was drawing lessons true.

Leave the “sojers” where he left them , all drawn up in long array,

There little general’s missing, he’s “off duty,” now for aye,

Yes a furlough has been granted that will last for time and years.

 

But there’s comfort in reflecting that the soldiers were but tin,

That our boy had never ‘listed in the wicked war of sin,

That no stain of crime or blood-shed foul was on the pure white hands,

That no foot-prints lost or straying far, are left upon life’s sands.

 

While I muse in grief and sorrow that the day now seems so long,

I list and catch the echo of the psalmist’s prayerful song.

Yes I sing the hope of David, “Child thou canst not come to me,”

But blest be God I have the faith that “I shall go to thee.”     –P. F. W.

Death of Webb Johnson, Jr.

A death of peculiar sadness was that of little Webb Johnson, only son of Dr. R. F. Johnson and wife, which occurred Thursday night. He was seemingly as well as usual until the day previous when he was attacked by that dread scourge diphtheria, to which he quickly succumbed. He was seven years old the only son of his parents, and the only grandson of his grandparents, all of whom idolized him. The remains were followed to their last resting place in the cemetery by a large concourse of sorrowing friends.

In Memory of Our Sweet Little Neighbor

We sadly miss our bright little neighbor, Webb Johnson, who has gone from our sight. He has but obeyed the call of the angels who summoned him to be their comrade. Peace be with him, and may it be a comfort to his sorrowing parents to know that he died as sweet and pure as the angels, one of whom he now is. He will live in our memory as the bright little boy who acted and talked like a little man. S.

Johnston, William B. An Assassin.

Lieut. Wm. B. Johnston Shot Through a Window and Killed.

Cadia, Ky., March 3.—Lieut. William B. Johnston was assassinated at Canton, nine miles east of here. He was spending the night with King Wallace, a relative, and about 10 o’clock went to his room to retire. He was half undressed when some one fired at him through the window with a shotgun loaded with buckshot, tearing his scalp completely off and killing him instantly. Willie Wallace and a son of King Wallace was in the room with Johnston.

Every effort is being put forth by the authorities and the citizens of Canton to capture the assassin. Johnston was 51 years old and a good citizen. He was a clerk in the post office department at Washington several years ago, and a first lieutenant in the company of home guards in that city. He had also been mail clerk on several of the largest railroads in the country.

Desperate Fight

Two Men Stand and Fire at Each Other—One Dead, the Other Dying

Berea, Ky., Dec. 26—A desperate fight took place here between two factions, in which Will Johnstone was killed instantly and Less Mitchell riddled with Bullets will die.

The two men met on the streets of Berea and Mitchell approached Johnstone and threatened to blow his brains out. Both men drew their weapons simultaneously, and standing face to face, within three feet of each other, began firing. Each fired four shots. They then ran, each in a different direction toward their friends.

Mitchell dropped to the ground before he had gone 50 yards. While on the ground four shots were fired by unknown parties and when Johnstone was reached it was found that his body was riddled and that he was dead. It is supposed the shots came from the friends of Mitchell.

Mitchell’s body was found 100 feet from the scene of the shooting with three bullets in it. He was still alive at last accounts, but can not live.

The shooting is the outcome of an old grudge between the two men. A Christmas entertainment was in progress near which the shooting occurred and the firing almost caused a panic. Both parties belong to prominent families.

JOHNSTOWN FLOOD

A TERRIBLE CATASTROPHE:   The most terrific accident that has ever occurred on this continent was the destruction of Johnstown on the Conemaugh river in Pennsylvania, and neighboring towns last Friday night. A large artificial lake nine miles above the city and built as a supply basin for a canal, gave way, and the flood came rushing down on the unsuspecting people. The fall in that distance was 300 feet and the force of the torrent was so fearful that nothing could resist it. An immense viaduct below the city caught the debris until it was piled up forty feet high, and the passage of the water was absolutely stopped, making a lake over thirty feet deep which almost instantaneously submerged the city. The people were washed from their homes into the whirling flood and then to add to the horror, the debris caught fire, and those who might have escaped the water were burned to death. It is estimated that 8,000 lives were lost and twenty million dollars worth of property destroyed. The story of the disaster is sickening indeed. From all over the country contributions are pouring in, for the relief of the sufferers.

In the absence of Coroner Wills, Judge Jas. H. Evans impaneled a jury composed of E. G. Baxter, John P. Conway, Alfred R. Martin, W. D. Smith, Ed. Hughes and S. J. Templeman, to investigate the death.

The testimony showed that the deceased was Belford Jones, aged about thirty-two years and a son of the late George Jones, who formerly lived near Ephesus Church. The young man was subject to severe epileptic fits and in one of these he evidently fell into the branch face downward and was suffocated. The jury brought in a verdict with these facts.

Paducah, Ky., – Ben Jones, a young negro, was shot to death near Vicksburg, Livingston county, by John Scott, a farmer of that section. Jones brutally assaulted a young daughter of Scott’s, and was chased down by the father and killed in his tracks. Scott is not likely to be molested, as the sympathy of the people is with him.

Jones, Charlie Horrible Accident

As the morning train from Jackson Sunday came through the tunnel near that city it ran into a mass of slate that had fallen from the heights above completely blocking the road. The road makes a curve in the tunnel so that the obstruction could not be seen until it was reached. The engineer, Charlie Jones, reversed his engine and applied the air brakes but could not stop the engine in time. It struck the mass, spread the rails and leaving the track, turned completely over. Jones did not have time to jump and was caught between the engine and a large stone: his hip and leg was caught and crushed. In this manner he remained for three hours before he could be extricated. He was fully conscious all the time and refused to take an opiate. John O’Brien, the fireman, had his ankle crushed so badly that amputation was necessary. The family of Jones was notified and a special train with the wife, two daughters and physicians were soon on hand. Both Jones and O’Brien live in Lexington, the latter being well known here and were carried to the hospital there where Jones died late in the afternoon. Dr. C. H. Rees and wife, of this city, were on the train and Dr. Rees did good service in extricating the wounded men. None of the passengers were injured as the coaches did not leave the track.

The latest news from all parts of the Commonwealth

Horrible murder

A crime similar to the West-Devers outrage in Marion county

Richmond, Ky., Jan. 30 – Attorney Thomas Coyle, of Berea, brought news to this place Wednesday of a horrifying crime similar in some respects to the West-Devers outrage     in Marion county, at Horse Lick, Jackson county, a wild, sparsely settled locality 35 miles south of here, and remote from railroad or telegraphic communication. The house of Christopher Jones, a farmer living in that locality was burned on Monday night, and Tuesday morning the charred body of Jones was found among the ashes. Suspicion pointed to John and Zion Cornelius, brothers, who with Jones had quarreled a few days before about his wife. As Jones was last seen with them they were arrested on warrants issued by County Judge Lunsford, and are now in jail at McKee, the county seat charged with the double crime of murder and arson. The general belief is that Jones was murdered and the murderers carried the body home and set the house on fire to conceal the crime. Mrs. Jones, the wife of the unfortunate man, says that he perished in trying to escape from the burning building.

London, Ky., Sept. 12.-Opening day of the Laurel county fair was characterized by one of the bloodiest fights in the county’s history, and the result is that Ed Jones, a well-known young man of this county, is dead, and Ab Early, of Corbin, is fatally wounded. Four men, Ed Jones, William Underwood, Ab Early and a man from Rockcastle county, were engaged in a crap game. A dispute arose between Early and the Rockcastle man.

Fauntleroy Jones

By the death of Fauntleroy Jones has passed from our midst a worthy gentleman and in many respects a very remarkable man. He lived modestly and unpretentiously. It was his taste. Several years ago a successful candidate for Judge of our Court of appeals in passing through the county called at Mr. Jones residence. His visit was protracted much beyond what his companion had expected and after they left, as this companion afterwards informed us, the Judge would ride for some minutes apparently absorbed in reflection when he would say, “That is a remarkable man we have left, a remarkable man, sir!” Within the last three years a prominent lawyer in one of our larger cities, a scholarly gentleman and a man of some literary pretensions, spoke to us of an article of a purely literary character on which he had spent much pains and which he intended for public use. He said to us, “For some time I have thought of changing one or two sentences in this article and I have several times thought I would go to Mr. Fauntleroy Jones home in Clark county and read the article to him and get his judgement on it for I would rather risk his judgement than any man’s I know.” Rev. Moses E. Laird, the eminent Reform preacher used to come out from Lexington and spend several days, some times a week, with Mr. Jones and they would sit in the most animated conversation for hours at a time. Some of the Church folks objected that he should give more of his time to them, but the reverend gentleman, when in the neighborhood, seldom failed to put in a good part of his time at Mr. Jones’. Mr. Jones was not a professing Christian and we are not able to say whether he believed in the divinity of Christ, but we know he was an interested reader of the Bible and he saw the infinite wisdom and love of God reflected by nature in many ways not visible to the average man, for he was a devoted lover and student of nature, and he saw God in the flowers, in the running brooks, in the sunshine, in the songs of birds, in everything. A few days before his death he said, “I have read the Bible and I know the richness and wonderful depths of its wisdom. The more I have read it the more I have become convinced it is a work of inspiration. I am not afraid to die, if only my passing can be without pain. I believe that God has made some proper provision for me.”

Like many another of his type he was not always understood. He was an intensely intellectual nervous temperament, and he had a high temper, ungovernable at times, which was the bane of his life. In his daily life and in his conversations, which were always elevating and ennobling, he was as pure and chaste as a woman. Except when irritated, he was as gentle as a little child and almost as trustful, but when aroused he apparently had no sense of personal danger. He believed in integrity of character beyond everything else. What he saw to be just and right he pursued unflinchingly and without regard to consequences. This element in his nature brought him into unpleasant contact with the federal authorities during the late war. At first he was a union man but when he became convinced that the North meant to resort to coercive measures he espoused the cause of the South with all the earnestness of his intense and fearless nature. One result of this was that he was arrested and confined for several weeks in a federal prison at Lexington. The latter years of his life were spent almost entirely with his books and flowers. He had been all his life an extensive and exhaustive reader. He loved knowledge for its own sake and enjoyed the rare faculty of completely absorbing and retaining with great tenacity whatever he read. He was born in 1816, and in early life lost a considerable fortune which he had embarked in the manufacture of hemp bagging in this city, so that he not only began his married life without fortune but considerable debt. He had not been inured to physical labor. His father was a Virginia gentleman of ample means, a large slave-holder and this was his favorite son. But he possessed an indomitable spirit. He obtained permission from his mother to plant the beginning of a nursery on an extreme corner of her farm. He built a shop close to his little cabin home. He employed a man to work in it and from him he learned the trade of a wheelwright. He worked by day in his nursery and at night by lamp light or candle light at his trade, making large spinning wheels on which servants used to spin yarn, and smaller wheels for spinning flax. He made chairs also which then brought higher prices than similar articles now bring, also the tall old fashioned bedsteads, which he turned on a turning lathe at which he became very expert. In course of time his nursery grew until it absorbed all his time and he gave his entire attention to it. Day after day and night after night, year in and year out, he toiled like any day laborer until he paid every dollar of his indebtedness and acquired a neat competency for himself and his family. He became the most noted nurseryman in Central Kentucky, and most of the old orchards in this and neighboring counties were supplied from “Jones’ Nursery.” His reputation extended rapidly and he was known far and near as a man whose word was worthy of absolute trust. But Mr. Jones was more than a nurseryman. He was a learned horticulturist and an accomplished botanist. He viewed his avocation from the standpoint of a scientist who was thoroughly familiar with the properties of soils and the nature and habits of plant life; and his knowledge along these lines was thorough and comprehensive. He was a lover of mankind and was deeply interested in whatever tended to elevate the human family or alleviate its sufferings. His father Thomas Jones, came to Kentucky from Essex county Virginia and located in this county where he served as Magistrate for a number of years, until that office became elective. Mr. Jones passed away as if in gently slumber Sunday morning, November 21st, about 5 o’clock . During his illness he suffered much at times. His nephew, Mr. Jas. Headly and his daughter, who have been living in the house with him for several years gave him the kindest attention during his sickness, and his eldest daughter, Mrs. Moore, was also with him constantly during the latter part of his illness. His children are Dr. Frank Jones, of Becknerville, Judge L. H. Jones, of this city, Mrs. Moore and Mrs. Woodford, of this county, and Mrs. R. M. Moore, of Lexington.

John Jones, better known as “Little Johnnie” Jones, died at his residence in this county Monday aged eighty-two years. He was not sick and his death was due simply to old age. He was a gallant Confederate soldier, and many were the expressions of appreciation from his old comrades. The remains were buried at the old Gravitt graveyard.

Reminiscences of Soldier Life.

Mike H. Haggard, of Georgetown, sends us some reminiscences of the soldier life of “Little Johnnie” Jones, who died a few weeks ago.   He never acquired familiarity with military titles and always addressed his captain as Mr. Bruner.   One night the word came down the line that the enemy was firing in the rear Jones was leading the Captain’s horse and wanted to be sure to get him at the right place so he called out, “Mr. Burner, which way is the rear before or behind.” While a prisoners at Camp Douglas, we were given for a while large rations of coffee, more than we could use. The other boys wasted their surplus, but Johnnie saved his and stored it away in the legs of an old pair of pants. In a short time the coffee rations ceased and Johnnie was the coffee king of the prison. He wouldn’t dispose of his holdings and to keep the boys from stealing it, he used the pants as a pillow. Then the boys stole it while he was at exercise, and to prevent this he wore his old pants on his head with the legs full of coffee as a collarets. His peculiarities caused many a laugh among his comrades, but he was a good soldier and had the esteem and respect of all.

The remains of Commodore John Paul Jones, the Revolutionary hero, have been found in a section of Paris, France, where there was formerly a grave yard but is now built over, and have been shipped to this country where they will be re-interred with national honors at either Annapolis, Md., or Arlington.

John Paul Jones

Remains of the First American Admiral Placed in Crypt at Bancroft Hall. No ceremony was ever attended in American Naval History with like inspiring and impressive action, that marked this event.

Annapolis, Md., April 25 – The remains of John Paul Jones were Tuesday placed in the crypt beneath the grand marble stairway of Bancroft Hall, there to rest until the completion of the chapel in which they are to be deposited. Crowds such as Annapolis has not known for many years, if ever before lined the streets and stood expectantly about the railroad station long before the train arrived bearing President Roosevelt, Mrs. Roosevelt, members of the cabinet. The french ambassador and a large number of distinguished naval officers and civil dignitaries. As President Roosevelt entered the grounds a national salute of 21 guns boomed out from the old U.S.S. Hartford, once the flagship of Adm. Farragut. Drawn up opposite the residence of the superintendent to receive the head of the nation was the Maribo battalion and the naval academy band. An elaborate luncheon given by Adm. Sands, at which there were about 150 guests, preceded the formal exercises of the day. Early Tuesday morning the casket containing the remains of the long dead admiral had been removed from the temporary vault in which they have rested since being brought from France, and deposited in the now armory of the naval academy. The oaken casket was quite hidden from view by a Union Jack and upon it rested two crossed palms, a wreath of green and the sword presented to the great naval commander by a king of France. Nearby a sentry continued the vigil that has never ceased since the casket, recovered after so much patient labor by Gen. Horace Porter first rested upon American soil. Out in the bay, miles distant, but most of them clearly visible from the naval academy, rode at anchor three great warships flying the tri-color of France, the Admiral Aube, the Conde and the Marseiller, first-class cruisers all, under the command of Adm. Campion. Beside them were the United States battleships Alabama, Indiana and Iowa, the cruisers Cleveland, Minneapolis, Des Moines, Denver and Colorado and the yacht Mayflower. From these came more than 1,500 sailors and marines, 200 of the former being from the French vessels. When the president entered the armory it was to face 10,000 standing cheering men and women. At the close of the several addresses the audience rose and remained standing while bodybearers, selected from among the petty officers of the United States and French warships, lifted the casket and bore it from the armory. Just outside it was placed upon a truck and the procession moved slowly toward Bancroft Hall. The way was led by Chaplain Henry Clark, U.S.N.. He was followed by a file of marines, the midshipmen officers and then by the naval academy band, playing the dead march from “Saul”. When the casket had been placed beneath the stairway, where it is to rest under constant guard, Chaplain Clark said a brief prayer and the ceremonies were at an end.

Jones, Lawrence Lawrence Jones, lately Commonwealth’s Attorney of this district died at the residence of Warren ________, in Woodford county, on the 15th instant. He had consumption and had been gradually sinking for nearly a year past. Captain Jones was born at Paris, Ky., March 4th, 1840, and received his education at the common schools of that vicinity. He read law for a while in the office of Major George W. Williams; then with his maternal uncle, Col. Thomas H. Holt, of Louisville; and finally with Hon. Wm. S. Greesbeck, of Cincinnati, when he was reduced to many straits by his extreme poverty. His brother, Jos. M. Jones, now living in Paris, who was then clerking in Cincinnati, divided his room and salary with Lawrence and being unable to pay board they did their own cooking and lived on the cheapest fare. In the fall of 1869, Capt. Jones began to practice law at Cincinnati. In 1861 he joined Gen. John H. Morgan’s company and fought gallantly throughout the war. When the ever memorable race for the office of Commonwealth’s Attorney began in the fall of 1867, he entered the lists, seemingly without the slightest suspect of success. Gen. John S. Williams, Col. W. C. P. Breckinridge and Capt. E. C. Marshall, three of the most able speakers that Kentucky could produce and with all due respect to the traditions of the past, perhaps as brilliant a trio as has ever offered in the West for any State, were eager candidates. They were all poor and sought the office___________. Capt. Jones knew nobody outside of Bourbon save a few comrades-with whom he had served in the army. It was the fiercest struggle that we have ever seen.   _____________________the leading aspirants and left Capt. Jones the sole survivor of the fight-. Since then, until recently when he resigned, he has served as Commonwealth’s Attorney with a devotion to the duties of the place, a fearlessness in the prosecution of criminals, and a courtesy to all with whom he came in contact: that made him universally popular. The people had the utmost confidence in his courage and integrity, and we have never heard anybody interested in the prosecution complain that the representative of the Commonwealth had failed to do his duty. Capt. Jones was a faithful friend, a true gentleman and a sincere Christian. During his long illness there was no complaining or repining, but the calmest resignation to the will of his Maker. He expressed a desire before dying that no funeral should be preached over his remains, and that the bar should refrain from passing any resolutions, as is customary when lawyers die. He was twice married, and leaves a widow, but no children.

Jones, Lula Death of Miss Lula Jones.

In our last issue we noted the fact that Miss Lula Jones, of this city, had been taken to the Good Samaritan hospital at Lexington to be operated on for appendicitis. The operation showed other complications, which dispelled the slight hope entertained before the operation and she died Thursday night. The body was brought here the next morning and the funeral was preached Saturday morning at the Baptist Church by Rev. B. B. Bailey and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery. Miss Jones was nineteen years old, a modest, intelligent, cultured lady, who was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her. She was exceedingly popular at the Winchester bank where she was trusted stenographer of President Witherspoon. For many years she had been a consistent member of the Baptist Church and died as a Christian should.

Jones, Luther J. Sent To The Asylum

Luther Jones, formerly of this city was tried at Lexington Monday and was sent to the lunatic asylum.   He imagines that he is to go to heaven without dying and that a baloon is to be the means of ascention. He was somewhat bothered as to the use of gas or hot air as a motive power. He recognized that his mind was affected and was glad to go to the asylum for treatment. He is a son of Rev. Spencer Jones who died here several years ago.

Horrible Death.

Luther J. Jones, who was a resident of Winchester for some years, but later lived at Torrent, met a horrible death near North Bend, Ind., Wednesday morning. He went to sleep on a railroad track and a train coming along crushed him into almost an unrecognizable mass. He was a brother of Mrs. Sommers Searcy, of Torrent.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, July 25, 1902

 

Brought Here For Burial.

The remains of Luther Jones were brought Tuesday night and placed in the cemetery vault; they were buried the next morning, services at the grave being conducted by Rev. John Reeves. He was run over and killed by a train near Lawrenceburg, Indiana, and the body was much mutilated. He was subject to fits and had been an inmate of the lunatic asylum. It is the opinion of friends here that he was accidentally killed, but the following special to the Louisville Times from Petersburg, Ky., would indicate that such was not the case;

“It is the opinion of the police of this city and Lawrenceburg, Ind., that a foul crime has been committed and that Luther J. Jones, of Torrent, Ky., was murdered and his body placed on the railroad bridge just across the river from here. When the engineer of the train ran over him first saw the man was lying with his head toward the locomotive, with no signs of life about him. His telescope valise was found in the weeds under the bridge, and had been rifled. He was well dressed, apparently about thirty years of age, and in his pockets were two funeral notices, a letter from his sister and a letter from Dr. J. G. Furnish, Superintendent of Lakeland Asylum.”

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, July 29, 1902

 

Petersburg, Ky., July 26.—The police believe that Luther J. Jones, whose mangled body was found on the railroad bridge across Tanners creek, opposite here, was murdered and his body placed on the rails. His valise, found in the woods near by, had been rifled. The body has not been claimed.

Reversed

The Court of Appeals this week reversed the decision of the lower court in the case of Jones vs. Jones, Jr. When Miss Mary Jones died a few years ago, it was claimed that she had given her nephew, Wm. Jones, Jr., a note for about $1,200. He sued the estate and got judgement for about that sum. The case was taken to the higher court which reversed the decision of the Circuit Court.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, December 17, 1897

 

The case of Wm. Jones, administrator of Mary Jones vs. Wm. Jones, Jr., involving the ownership of a note amounting to about $1,500, was compromised, the proceeds being divided and each side paying their own costs.

Jones, Mary Wades Mill.

Died, June 26th, of paralysis, Miss Mary Jones, aged 67 years. Last January she fell and sustained a fracture of the hip joint and has been out of her bed only a few times when she was stricken with paralysis on Wednesday before she died. Miss Mary had been a consistent member of the Methodist church for many years. We never knew a patient to bear their affliction with any more patience and fortitude than did Miss Mary. Her pastor, Eld. Thomson, held funeral services at the home of her mother, aunt Bertha Jones the day following. Interment at the Winchester cemetery. Birth and death are two wonderful events that happen alike to all and over which we have no control. It is the time between these events that so much concern the human race. If this period is spent in useful and right living our life is a benefaction. We are glad to know that Miss Mary’s life was so spent and her helpful cheerful presence will be greatly missed around the family hearthstone.

Jones, May The inquest

Verdict charges Laughlin with murder, criminal assault and arson

Augusta, Ky., Feb. 20 – The coroner’s jury convened in the mayor’s office at ten o’clock. The coroner examined several witnesses Wednesday morning. Marshal Sayers was at Maysville Tuesday night, returning here early Wednesday morning. Several of the officials of the Maysville jail have been here in attendance at the inquest. The examination of Edward Fitzgerald, the Chesapeake and Ohio detective, and Arthur Pumpelly, turnkey in the Maysville jail, corroborated the statements of Marshal Sayers and other witnesses in regard to the published confession of Robert Laughlin. The jury returned the following verdict: “We the jury believe, from all the evidence in the case, that Sarah E. Laughlin and May Jones came to their death by an iron poker in the hands of Robert Laughlin and that he ravished May Jones and burned the bodies within the house.”

Jones

Mrs. Hannah E. Jones died at the residence of her son-in-law, J. T. Clinkenbeard, at Columbus, Ohio, Sept. 10th.

The remains were buried in the cemetery here Friday. Services were held by Elder R. French. This family is one upon which sorrow has come heavily. About fifteen years ago the husband and father, Spencer F. Jones, died suddenly at his home near this city. About ten years ago, Samuel, a son, died: about three years since, Miss Lula, one of the brightest young ladies that we have ever known, died: some two months ago Luther, the only son left, was killed on the railroad track, near Lawrenceburg, Indiana.

This leaves Mrs. Clinkenbeard and Mrs. Fenton Searcy, of Torrent, the only members of the family left.

That worthy people should be so uniformally unfortunate is a mystery.

We give our sympathy, it is all that we can do.

A Horrible Death

Monday afternoon, Mrs. John Henry Jones, who lived near Hedges, this county, was sitting with her back to the fire and with her eleven months old baby in her lap. By some means her dress caught fire, but she was not aware of it until she heard the roaring of the flames and saw them above her head. With great presence of mind she tried to tear off her clothes, but her apron was fastened with a safety pin and she could not get it off. She was unable to extinguish the flames and finally ran into the yard and screamed for help. Robt. Brown, on whose farm she lived, heard her and hastened to her aid. By the time he reached her all her clothing had burned off, and the flesh was literally roasted. She lingered in great agony for eight hours before death came to her relief. The remains were buried at Bethlehem Church. She was about twenty years old and leaves a husband and one child. The latter was not burned.

Jones, Mrs. Mattie Bedford Death Of Mrs. Joseph Jones

From the bridal altar to the tomb in little more than two short weeks is the sad and brief history of the married life of Mrs. Mattie Bedford Jones, wife of Joseph Jones of Becknerville, who died Friday, shortly after noon at the home of her mother, Mrs. Henrietta Bedford in this city, of typhoid fever, in the twenty-third year of her age.

Owing to the serious illness of her brother, John Bedford, of the same disease, services were held at the cemetery by Eld. F. B. Walker of the First Christian Church, at two o’clock Saturday afternoon

Jones, Mrs. Nannie Death of Mrs. Jones

Some days ago Mrs. Nannie Jones, wife of Jas. S. Jones, who lives near Colby Station, was driving along the road when she met the automobile driven by Whit Hampton, the rural mail carrier on Route No. 2. The horse driven by Mrs. Jones took fright and whirled around throwing her out. She struck on her head which was cut and bled profusely. Dr. Ishmael was summoned and took her home in his automobile. She lingered for several days, only partially recovering consciousness, and a few days ago she was taken to a Lexington hospital. She gradually grew worse and Thursday night she died of concussion of the brain. The remains were brought back to the family residence where the funeral was held Saturday morning with services by Eld. J.N. Culton, of Richmond, and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery. She was forty-nine years of age, and before her marriage was Miss Howard, of Estill county. She is survived by her husband and five children; Miss Rosa Lee, a teacher in the public schools, Shirley, who is in the Navy, and is now stationed at Panama, Ethan, Rupard and Duray. She was most highly respected and leaves many friends to mourn her loss.

Jones, R. W. Resolutions of Respect.

At a call meeting of the Board of Education held at the office of Geo. W. Strother at 9 o’clock a.m. March fifth, 1901 for the purpose of adopting suitable and appropriate resolutions respecting the death of R. W. Jones, a fellow member of said board:

Whereas, It has pleased the all-wise God to remove from our midst our friend and fellow member, R. W. Jones, therefore be it resolved;

1st That in the death of R. W. Jones, the Board of Education has lost one of the most efficient and zealous members, the cause of education one of its most enthusiastic and hearty supporters, a man of unquestionable honesty and integrity. He did what he believed to be right and just, and voted and acted upon all matters pertaining to his duties as a member of the Board from a pure and unselfish standpoint, and after careful investigation of a subject matter before the Board he would make up his mind and follow his honest convictions and no argument or persuasion could change him.

2nd That the community in which he lived has just lost an upright, honorable and highly-respected citizen. The church of which he was a member one of its most earnest and active workers and his family a loving and devoted husband and father.

3rd As an evidence of the high esteem and respect in whether he was held by his fellow members of the Board of Education, the schools are now dismissed for the day and the Board of Education will attend the funeral services in a body.

4th That we tender to his distressed and bereaved family our heartfelt sympathy in this their hour of grief and trouble.

5th That those resolutions be spread upon the records of the Board of Education, published in papers and that a copy of same be sent by the Secretary to the family of the deceased.

This March 6th, 1901 J. T. Ecdon, President, J. A. Rames, Secretary

Death of R. W. Jones.

Richard W. Jones died Tuesday morning at his home on Jefferson street, of chronic bowel trouble, aged fifty-four years. The funeral services were held the following day by W. G. McCready, of this city, and G. C. Abbitt of Mt. Sterling, and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery with the beautiful ceremonies of the Red Men conducted by Frank L. Smith of Lexington. The Odd Fellows and Confederate Veterans to both of which he belonged attended in a body.

Mr. Jones came to Kentucky from Essex county, Virginia and came of one of the best families of the Old Dominion. He left college in his senior year to join the Confederate army and served under Stuart Jackson and officers in the Virginia campaigns. He then tried farming but afterward came to Kentucky where he has been in the railroad business for a number of years. He was an officer in the Episcopal church and stood high in the Red Men and Odd Fellows. For a number of years he has been a member of the city Board of Education of which he was a valued member. No man stood higher for the truth, honesty and integrity. He leaves a wife, five sons and three daughters.

Soldiers Tribute to Comrade R. W. Jones.

Again we are called together to perform the last rites over the body of a dead comrade. It seems only yesterday that we followed the coffins of Pendleton and Curry. More and more rapidly they are going. The thin gray line grows thinner and in quicker succession they fall out of the ranks and now Comrade R. W. Jones has laid down his arms.

He had been mustered out and with his honorable discharge in his hands and his brave breast shining with the insignia of long and faithful service he has gone to join that immortal host “who are resting” under the shade of the trees on the other side of the river. Comrade Jones was a private in the ranks through life both in the military and civil service, but it is said of him by soldier and citizen that he did well what his hands found to do keeping always and everywhere both his armor and his honor bright. He was true to his convictions doing his duty today and leaving results to Him who shapeth the ends of all, he stood to his post until he fell. We, his comrade, loved and respected him living so we mourn for him dead. To his bereaved family, we the Confederate Veterans of Clark county tender our sympathy. His wife has the consolation of his noble life and his children take from him the priceless heritage of a spotless name. And now comrade “good night” and may we ask in that better world be permitted to bid you good morning.

Jones, Ralph 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. George Gibson was shot in the hands. Han Harding had his skull crushed and several others received minor wounds. This has broken out the old Poca feud and the end is feared. No arrests have yet been made.

Jones, Robert In Jessamine county, opposite Valley View, Robt. Jones was shot and killed by Jesse Howard. Jones was twenty-five years old and unmarried. Howard has a wife and several children and lives at Valley View. He was arrested and lodged in jail. Whiskey was at the bottom of the affair. Until recently Howard lived near Ford, this county.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, September 25, 1894

 

JESSE HOWARD, recently of this county, who killed Robert Jones near Valley View last week, was tried Wednesday and held over in $1,000 bond to await the action of Circuit Court.   It appears that five were together, all drunk. Howard had a row with a man named Winkle and struck him on the head with a rock.   Shortly after this Howard went to his house and got his gun. He and Jones then got into a quarrel and Howard claims that Jones was advancing upon him with a knife when he shot him. Howard’s wife is a cripple and he has several little children who are wholly without support.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, October 2, 1894.

 

Jesse Howard, who killed Jones at Valley View, is still in jail unable to give bond. Howard killed a desperado several years ago and got a short term for it, but it is thought he will get out of this case.—Nicholasville Journal

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, Nov. 20, 1894

 

THE following in regard to a former Clark county man appears in the Richmond Pantograph:   “Jesse Howard, who killed Jones at Valley View is still in jail unable to give bond. Howard killed a desperado several years ago and got a short term for it, but it is thought he will get out of this case.-Nicholasville Democrat.

The above appears in The pantograph in its issue of November 20th. In behalf of Mr. Howard we desire to say that the Nicholasville Democrat made a mistake in giving to its readers the news that he killed a desperado several years ago and was sent to the penitentiary a short term for committing such a crime. It is a grievous mistake and does Mr. Howard and his family a harming injustice. It gives us pleasure to correct it. He is entirely innocent of this alleged crime and imprisonment.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, January 1, 1895.

 

THE case of Jesse Howard, formerly of this county, for murder is set for today in the Jessamine Circuit Court.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, March 12, 1895.

 

THE jury in the case of Jesse Howard for killing Young Jones at Valley View failed to agree and the prisoner was placed under a bond of $ 350 for his appearance at the next term of court. The jury stood eleven for man slaughter and one for acquittal. -Nicholasville Democrat.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, March 26, 1895.

 

JESSE HOWARD, late of this county, who was tried for murder at Nicholasville recently and released on bond, the jury disagreeing, had a narrow escape from the penitentiary, the jury standing eleven for conviction of man slaughter, and one for acquittal. The lone juror was obstinate and Howard is free for a while at least.

The Winchester Democrat, Tuesday, April 2, 1895.

 

JESSE HOWARD, who formerly lived near Ford, was tried in the Jessamine Circuit Court last week and acquitted of the murder of Robt. Jones. This was Howard’s third trial for the crime. On the first trial the jury stood eleven to one for conviction; the second jury also hung but divided more evenly; and the third one as above stated resulted in an acquittal.

Jones, Robert                         AA In Memoriam.

We feel sad and grieved because of the death of Robert Jones, (colored) who died after three weeks suffering of fever, aged twenty-one years. He died where he was raised, at the residence of Mrs. Sarah H. Scobee. He was a good boy, loved by his friends and respected by his neighbors. It is due to his memory to say that his habits of life were correct, his morals and religious character blameless, he loved his church and Sunday School, and benevolent order. He was kindly cared for by physicians and nurse, but we do miss Bobbie, and pay this tribute to his memory.

In Memoriam.

Tuesday morning, February 4th, the angel of death summoned from the scene of his earthly labors William C. Jones, in the seventy-sixth year of his age.

Death always comes as a shock to those who survive, but to him who has faithfully performed the duties of life, as father, husband, citizen and neighbor, it has no terror, and gently, as the tired one sinks to sleep, so did the spirit of this faithful one seek its Maker.

To those who loved him, it is hard to see the hand of a loving Father in this stroke of Providence, but we know that he doeth all things well, and he who has gone before would not have us repine. The memory of his kindness, love and patience, will make those who are left behind more desirous to be like him, and his death is but an added link to draw us to the heavenly home to which he has gone.

Not now but in the coming years,

It may be in the better land.

We’ll read the meaning of our tears,

And then, ah then, we’ll understand.

Jones, Willie For a while Calib Jones, a former Jailer of Knott county, was confined in jail here. As he was credited   with killing twenty-seven men, he was an object of much curiosity. His son seems to have been a bad man also, but had different luck inasmuch as he was killed, instead of killing some one. Willie Jones, in company with another man attempted to rob Morgan Turner, of Floyd county, when a young man named William Martin seized his Winchester and opened fire. The robbers ran, but next morning Jones was found dead near the yard gate. The dead man was one of the worst men in that section of the State and numerous warrants were out for his arrest.

Death of E. S. Jouett, Sr.

Perhaps no event of recent date has caused such wide spread sorrow as the death of Ed. Jouett, Sr., which occurred at an early hour Saturday morning. About a week previous he suffered a severe attack of cholera morbus; acute kidney trouble ensued and in less than a week he was dead. He was sixty-three years old and his life was as an open book upon every page of which was inscribed devotion to duty and love to his fellow man. No man in the community had more friends and fewer enemies. Gentle, kind and loving, he was always among the first to sympathize and help those in trouble; to admonish the erring and wayward in the spirit of Christian charity and to welcome the wanderer back to the fold. He was proud of his sons, but it was in the love and tenderness which he lavished upon his wife that his nature found its fullest expression.

For many years he was a leading merchant in this city and in every transaction his word was law, for everybody knew that what he said was true. As an Odd Fellow and a Knight of Pythias he was prompt in the discharge of every duty and made a model member of each.

In early life he made the “good confession” and attached himself to the Christian church. At the time of his death he was an Elder in the First Christian church, a position he had held for a long time. His death is a sad blow to the community, which can ill afford to lose a citizen so valuable, while his life is an example worthy of emulation by the rising generation.

The Chris church was crowded to its utmost capacity Sunday afternoon while Revs. W. S. Keene, W. T. Bolling and J. W. McGarvey conducted the funeral. The Odd Fellows and Knights of Pythias, together with a large number of friends accompanied the remains to the cemetery.

Jouett, Matthew Harris Matthew Harris Jouett is the subject of an interesting illustrated article in the May number of Harpers’ Magazine entitled “Kentucky’s Master—Painter.” It is by Chas. Henry Hart, of Philadelphia, the famous art critic who had charge of this department of the World’s Fair. Though Jouett lived in the early part of this century and died at thirty-nine, his work has given him a world wide reputation. Of it Mr. Hart writes, “It is not extravagant to say that his work borders on the marvelous.” He was the father of Admiral James F. Jouett, United States Navy, (recently retired) and an uncle of the late E. S. Jouett of this place. The latter’s family have a superb portrait of the artist, painted by himself which has been pronounced by connoisseurs to be of almost fabulous value.

Judy, John A. At the Rees House, Thursday after a long and painful illness, John A. Judy crossed the dark river. He was a man scrupulously just in his dealings and was a universal favorite. He was a fine judge of cattle and was for many years an extensive dealer in the better class of cattle and made considerable money. He owned a fine farm but for several years had nearly abandoned business on account of failing health. He had visited various health resorts without avail and while his death was not unexpected, it was still a shock to his friends. The funeral took place from the Rees House, the funeral services being held at the cemetery by Rev. Richard French, after which the remains were placed in the vault.

The Winchester Democrat, Wednesday, February 7, 1894

 

A remarkable circumstance concerning him was told The Prowler this week by a friend of the late John A. Judy. Although a land owner and for many years a prominent stock trader, he had never raised an ear of corn, a head of wheat or other grain; a pig, colt or calf. In fact he had never been a producer. Although a most genial and companionable man, fond of the society of his fellow creatures, he was never a member of any secret society or fraternal organization or even of the church.

The death of Capt. J. L. Wheeler brings to mind the fact that death is fast decimating the ranks of the Muckletonian Club, at one time the most prominent hunting and fishing club of the South. It was organized in 1872 with eighteen of the most prominent men of Winchester and vicinity as members. In addition to scores of minor trips they occasionally went on more extensive ones to Florida, Arkansas, the Pacific Slope, etc. These trips were truly days of true pleasure and good fellowship. Not a word of discord ever marred the harmony of their meetings. Col. R. N. Winn was the first President and still fills that position, although the remaining members are so few and scattered that the meetings of late years have been few. The first member die was John J. Eubank, followed in succession by Ben P. Goff, S. Grant Jackson, M. G. Taylor, Jas. D. Gay, David A. Gay, D. T. Buckner, John W. Prewitt, John A. Judy and J. L. Wheeler. The surviving members are r. N. Winn, Leeland Hathaway, J. D. Simpson, A. H. Sympson, and T. F. Phillips, of this city; Geo. R. Snyder and R. J. Snyder, of Louisville and Sam McKee, of Philadelphia. Ten have passed over the dark river while eight await the summons to join their comrades on the other side.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colson Trial Begun.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Colson Not Guilty.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Justice, William Wallace Justice

Dr. William Wallace Justice died at his home on Lexington Avenue in this city at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11th after an illness of three weeks. Deceased was born in Cass county, Indiana, March 11th, 1827. He was of Scotch-Irish descent and his ancestor, Matthew Justice, was driven out of Ireland and fled to Holland on account of the persecutions of James I. Afterwards he came to Maryland and the father of the subject of this sketch moved to Indiana in the early years of the last century. His father and uncles were revolutionary soldiers. Dr. Justice moved from Indiana to Mt. Sterling in 1851 and three years later came to Winchester. In 1861, he was married to Mrs. Sophia E. Scott (nee Croxton) who with one daughter, Rose Hood, survives him. At about the age of ten years, he became a member of the Methodist church and hence was a member for about seventy years. He was a steward of the church for many years and superintended the Sunday school for forty years. For twenty-seven years he did not miss a church service and in the forty years as superintendent he missed two or three services. He had his dental office in the same room for forty eight-years, and there were but few days in that long stretch of years that he was not practicing faithfully and efficiently his profession. The recital of dates above indicate in a mere feeble way his life’s labors. In all these years he was the industrious competent professional man, the loving tender husband and parent, the upright man of affairs, the faithful church worker, the humble Christian. He deserved esteem and love, and his fellow citizens without stint praise his deeds and honor his memory. He feared and honored his God and four score years of great peace and joy came to him. He died as he had lived, calmly and peacefully. He trusted God in life and in his death he was assured of his Father’s help and presence. The funeral took place from his late home at 3 p.m. Saturday, July 13th. Services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. J.L. Weber, and the remains were interred in the Winchester cemetery.
