Paducah Battle The Paducah Battle.

The Thirty-Eighth anniversary of the Eventful Day.

Paducah, Ky., March 25.—Monday was the thirty-eighth anniversary of the most eventful day in the history of Paducah. On March 24, 1864 about 4 p. m. the battle of Paducah was fought. Gen. Forrest’s command, including hundreds of young confederates from this immediate section, many of them Paducans made a raid into Paducah and after driving in the federal pickets, two regiments attacked Ft. Anderson, where the union troops were quartered.

The killed and wounded on both sides were about thirty men.

The most serious loss was the death of Col. A. P. Thompson, of this city commanding the 3rd. Kentucky. Several other Paducah soldiers among the confederates were killed and wounded. Ex-Sheriff Wade, of Marshall county, who participated in the attack, came here especially to spend the day at the scene of the old fort.

Palmer, Andy 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 of 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.

Parker, Montgomery THE PARKER CASE.

About thirty years ago two boys from this county went to Fayette county in search of work. One was named Wills and the other McDonalds. They secured a job cutting corn for a man by the name of Montgomery Parker who lived about five miles east of Lexington. Parker’s reputation was not good. It was said that he was formerly an overseer and domineered over his hands and did not pay promptly. The boys went to work in the forenoon and Parker went to Lexington.   In the afternoon someone told the boys of Parker’s reputation when they became alarmed and decided to return home without waiting for Parker to come back. One of them carried away a corn knife which was of less value than the work they had done. A yellow dog that belonged to Parker followed them, though the evidence showed that they tried to drive it back. When Parker returned and found the boys gone he was in great rage and started after them on his horse. When they saw him coming at a point where the Pine Grove Station pike connects with the Winchester and Lexington pike about eight miles west of this city the boys left the pike and ran through a field. Parker went through an opening in the fence and continued the pursuit.   The boys found that they could not escape Parker being nearly up to them. They threw up their hands having in the meantime dropped the corn knife.   At this moment Parker fired a pistol which he carried in his hand and the Wills boy fell dead. Parker claimed that his horse shield and the pistol went off accidentally. He was indicted in Fayette county. The family had plenty of money and a strong defense was made. On a change of venue the case was transferred to Woodford county. In the first trial there was a hung jury. It was said that one man on the jury stood out for acquittal. This man became so unpopular that in a few years he left the county. At the second trial Parker was found guilty and sentenced to twenty years in the penitentiary. Every effort known to the law was without avail and Parker was finally carried to the prison at Frankfort. The same spirit that had manifested itself in his life continued with him in prison.   He could not be conquered. All the punishments known to the rules were applied to him without effect. One morning he was found dead in his cell. His friends claimed that he was whipped to death, but the prison officials maintained that he died from poisoning.

Postponed

The trial of Andy Settle, of Allansville, for shooting at Sherman Parker, which was set   for Tuesday, was postponed until Friday as both Judge Haggard, the presiding Judge,   and Ed Jouett, the attorney for the prisoner, were absent Tuesday. As Parker was in charge of the mail when shot at, it was thought probable that the government officials would take hold of the matter, but Commissioner Cardwell said that it did not come within the Federal statutes.

Will of Mrs. Parr is probated – May have some bearing on contest

Louisville, Ky., – The will of Mrs. Maria D. Parr, wife of the late Capt. Daniel Parr, was probated; nine years after the death of the wealthy testatrix. Just what bearing this has on the contest to set aside the will of Capt. Parr is not known here. Capt. Parr, by his will, provided that $700,000 should be invested in “Parr’s Rest,” a home for aged and indigent females. Contest was threatened but a settlement was effected, and later a revocation of the charitable bequest is said to have been found. Suit was begun to have the former will set aside and it will be adjudicated in May.

Capt. H. S. Parrish died suddenly at his home Monday night. He was sitting in his chair and was feeling better than usual when suddenly his hand fell over on his breast and he was dead. He had long been one of the most prominent men of the county, being at the time of this death a member of the County Board of Magistrates. He was during the war, Captain of Company A. 20th Ky. Federal Infantry, Col. Sanders Bruce’s regiment. Tucker Reckner was first Lieutenant and W. A. Attersall second Lieutenant. Owing to ill health Capt. Parrish resigned before the close of the war, and came home. Mr. Attersall is now the only surviving officer of the Company, Capt. Parrish was at one time one of the State officers the Knights of Honor and was also a prominent member of the Independent Order of Old Fellow, with the honors of which order he will be buried to-day at 10 o’clock, A. M., Rev. I. J. Spencer, officiating, Capt. Parrish was twice married.   His first wife was Miss Ellen Turnbull who died several years ago. He second wife, who survives him was Miss Ella Quisenberry.

The Democrat, Wednesday, March 2, 1892.

 

A check was this week received for two thousand dollars, the amount of insurance on the life of Capt. H. S. Parrish, due from the Grand Lodge Knights of Honor. This shows a very commendable spirit on the part of that institution, as through the negligence of the deceased, who was its secretary, the local lodge had become suspended and had not been fully reinstated until two days after Capt. Parrish’s death.

Parrish, J. W. Full of years and honors

Winchester’s widely known and oldest merchant passes away

By the death of Mr. J.W. Parrish, which occurred at his home, on South Main Street, Tuesday night, one of the links which bind us to the past was severed. He was born in Madison county nearly eighty-eight years ago, but came to Winchester in his early manhood and had been a part of the growth and development of the city ever since, modestly shrinking from making him self conspicuous, yet he was always in favor of a progressive policy for the town of his adoption. He fulfilled the idea of the great poet, Bryant, in that he never seemed to grow old and at the time of his death, he was eighty-eight years young. He was a member of the Fire Department and of the Odd Fellows, and was enthusiastic in their support. For fifty years he has been Treasurer of Hickman Lodge of Odd Fellows and was a constant attendant on its meetings. He was also Treasurer of the Fire Department. In early life he learned the cabinet makers trade, but when the introduction of factory goods supplanted handwork he went into the grocery business and his store has been a land mark in Winchester for more than half a century. For a number of years his son, Charles, has been associated with him in the business. Mr. Parrish was twice married. His first wife was Mrs. Robinson, who was originally Miss Berry. After her death he married Miss Julia Williams who survives him, as do four children, Charles, Mrs. Richard French, Mrs. Lizzie Dudley and Miss Nannie Parrish. Also one brother, Christopher, and one sister, Mrs. I.N. Massie, both of this city. The funeral took place from the family residence on South Main Street yesterday at two o’clock p.m., short services being conducted by Rev. J.W. Harding and Dr. J.L. Weber, and the burial was in the Winchester cemetery under the auspices of Hickman Lodge No.72 of Odd Fellows. The Fire Department attended in a body. The pall bearers were his four grandsons, Messrs. F.H. Dudley, Willaim P. Dudley, J.H. French, William P. French, and two nephews, Messrs. W.S. Massie and J.R. Parrish. Many handsome floral designs were sent by loving friends, notable among them being elegant pieces from Hickman Lodge of Odd Fellows, the Winchester Fire Department, and the Winchester Cemetery Co., of which he was the efficient President. His long life was one of usefulness and he enjoyed the esteem and admiration of all who knew him. Ever courteous and gentle, his many acts of kindness will be long remembered.

Resolutions of Respect

At a meeting of the Board of Directors of the Winchester Cemetery Company held December 5, 1906, the following resolutions were adopted: “This board has heard with profound regret of the death of J.W. Parrish, who has for so many years been President of our company. He was one of the Charter members and has always taken the deepest interest in its affairs. The City of Winchester has had no more upright citizen and no man in the community has more endeared himself to a large circle of friends by reason of his honesty, kindness of heart, purity of character and faithful devotion to all the obligations of life as husband, father, citizen and friend. He has set an example worthy of imitations and has certainly placed this company under the deepest obligations by the interest he has taken in its affairs. He has lived a life beyond the alloted span and filled with good deeds and leaves behind a character of which all connected with him may well be proud.”

J.D. Simpson, W.M. Beckner, A.H. Hampton, T.C. Robinson, W. Miller, and W.H. Garner, Directors. The following resolutions were passed by the Winchester Fire Department: Whereas, Mr. J.W. Parrish, who having been a valued member of this department since its formation, and having held the responsible position as Treasurer of the Department for many years, having died, therefore be it: Resolved, that in the death of Mr. Parrish the Department has lost one of its oldest and most faithful members, efficient officer and truest friend. 2nd. That this department hereby tenders its sincere sympathy to the family of Mr. Parrish in their bereavement. 3rd. That as many of the department as can do so will attend the funeral in body. 4th That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the men of the county papers and spread upon the minutes of the department. 5th. That the engine be draped in mourning for thirty days after the passage of these resolutions. A.S. Reese, Walter Bean and W.C. Fitch Committee

John Parrish, a negro boy aged about fourteen years, was shot Tuesday afternoon by Julian Johnson, a negro boy about 16 years old. The ball entered the body about the lower rib inflicting a wound from which he died Wednesday afternoon. But little is known of the affair but it is said the shooting was accidental.   Coroner Wills held an inquest without a jury and returned a verdict that the shooting was accidental. The examining trial of Johnson was held late yesterday afternoon, too late for us to get the result, but he was doubtless discharged.

Death of this most estimable lady Thursday evening

Mrs. Julia Parrish, widow of the late J.W. Parrish died at her home on Main street Thursday night in the seventy-ninth year of her age. Death was due to a complication of diseases and the infirmities incident to old age. Just a few days before, her beloved consort passed away. Year by year, as they glided gently down the stream of life they became, as it were, truly one, and in his departure, her companion for so many years, the strongest tie binding her to life was severed, and joyfully her spirit fled to join his in the life beyond. A gentle, kind, Christian woman, she lived not alone for the present but regarded this world as merely preliminary to another and a higher condition. Her oft expressed desire was to so live that when the summons came she would be ready. Such a life she lived and her death was but the gathering of a ripened sheaf into the garner of the Master. She was unselfish and untiring in her devotion to her family and friends, and those in sorrow or distress found comfort in her tender and sympathetic nature. Before her marriage she was Miss Williams and had spent her long and useful life in this city. She leaves four children, Mrs. Richard French, Mrs. Lizzie Dudley, Miss Nannie Parrish and Mr. Charles Parrish. The funeral was preached at the Methodist Church Saturday morning by Rev. J.L. Weber and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery. The pall bearers were her four grandsons, Messrs. F.H. Dudley, J.H. French, Wm. P. Dudley, Wm. P. French, and two nephews, Wm. S. Massie and John D. Parrish, the same having acted in that capacity at the funeral of Mr. Parrish a few days ago. Honorary pall bearers were Messrs. B.F. Curtis, T.C. Robinson, Dr. J.C. Vaught, Dr. I.H. McKinley, Dr. W.W. Justice, and J.W. Poynter.

Parrish, Thomas Goff Among the solid substantial business men of the county are John Goff, of this county and Thomas Goff, of Bourbon. They are twin brothers, and are now approaching the sere and yellow leaf of life. Thirty-six years ago twin sons were born to Meridith Parrish, who named them Thomas Goff Parrish and John Goff Parrish. The former died Thursday night of that terrible scourge, typhoid fever and the latter is lying ill of the same dreaded malady. A quarter of a century later twin sons were born to John Swope and they in turn were called, Thomas Parrish Swope and John Parrish Swope. They are bright, intelligent little boys, and bid fair to make good men. In each case the resemblance of the brothers was such that none but intimate acquaintances could distinguish them.

Parsons, George SAMUEL L. and William Parsons, of Luddington and Bay City, Michigan, are at Hotel Windsor to look after an old Revolutionary claim near Grassy Lick, Montgomery county, and in three miles of the Bourbon line. The claim is there were 7,400 acres located there and 600 at Boonesboro, where the old soldier, George Parsons lived and died. It is claimed he never transferred to any one. Ex-Mayor Purnell will be their attorney before United States Court at Frankfort. The patents are from Governor Beverley Randolph.-Paris Kentuckian

These lands would undoubtedly be partly in Clark, but nearly a century of adverse occupancy would militate against any recovery where the present possessors had color of title.

Patrick, Jake T. Jack Patrick dead

Mr. J.T. Patrick, of Magoffin county, one of the best known men in Eastern Kentucky, was suddenly stricken while at his post of duty in the revenue service at Tyrone, Anderson county last week and expired in a few minutes. He was a member of the Masonic order and had many friends throughout the State. He was a brother of Mrs. R.M. Millard, formerly of this city.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday, March 8, 1910

 

Action too late

A strange coincidence attended the death of Jake Patrick, of Magoffin county, a notice   of whose death appeared in our last issue. While engaged in his duties in the Internal Revenue Service several years ago he was thrown from a horse and very badly hurt, one side being paralyzed. It was felt that the circumstances justified his being allowed one year’s salary and Congressman Langley introduced a bill to that effect which would have passed the House in a short while. A few moments after the bill had been reported his death was announced. Another case similar in many respects, was that of Capt. John H. McBrayer, the Anderson county, Kentucky distiller, who died on Friday, the same day Representative Johnson secured the passage of a bill relieving him of the payment of $20,000.

In the same fight, Daniel B. Greene, ex-County Assessor, lost an ear from a pistol shot and Elijah Dungan was knocked down with a rock and perhaps fatally wounded. The trouble arose at a Republican primary election for the officers of Sheriff and Circuit Clerk. Warrants have been issued charging Joseph Higgins, Samuel Patton and D. B. Greene with murder, but no arrests have been made.

Patrick, Ruben It is with sadness that we note the death of this grand old man, at his home in Magoffin county.   He had the distinction of capturing a cannon from the Confederates during the war by his own efforts. He turned it over to the government, but it was afterward returned to him by act of Congress, as we remember it. He was well known all over eastern Kentucky and no man stood higher. We hope that some friend will give us the story of his life.

Two Deaths Here Held As Accidents

Coroner James W. Bean today handed down decisions in the recent deaths of two persons in the Boonesboro area.

The coroner said that it had been decided that Don Neal, 82-year –old farmer of the Athens Boonesboro-Road, died as the result of a fall over a cliff.

The death of William Butler Patrick, 19, Mt. Sterling, was attributed to accidental drowning in the Kentucky River.

Bodies of the two were found on July 23. Each had been missing from his home three days. The scene of the two accidents were approximately one mile apart.

Coroner Bean said investigations of the two cases had been made by state and local officials.

Young Patrick’s body was found floating under the Boonesboro Memorial Bridge along the Madison County bank. However, the case was turned over to the Clark County coroner when Patrick’s car was found abandoned on the Clark side of the river, and officers concluded it was possible that death occurred within the bounds of the county.

The body of Neal was found on a hillside near the Athens-Boonesboro Road.

This venerable colored man passed away last week having nearly reached the century mark, being ninety-seven years old. He was born the slave of James Patton, who lived on Stoner Creek in Clark county, who manumitted him in his young manhood. Uncle Charley Patton, as he was called, lived all his life in this county and died leaving an honest name. For many years he played the fiddle for picnics, dances and parties, to the great delight and satisfaction of the devotees of the fascinating art of dancing. It was edifying to hear him prompt gentlemen who tripped the light fantastic toe in the cotillions and reels at balls and parties, where dancing was given and where he played the violin. He was esteemed for his rare integrity and good deportment.

Paul, Donna Marie 2 Children Drown At Jackson’s Ferry

Two Lexington Children drowned in the Kentucky River shortly after 9:15 p.m. Friday when a car driven by their father, Edward Paul, 42, plunged into the river at the Jackson Ferry landing 15 miles south-east of Winchester on the Muddy Creek Road.

The victims: Donna Marie Paul, 7, and Helen Louise Paul, 5.

A third child of the Paul’s, three-months-old Carol Ann, was rescued by Sterling Townsend who was on a houseboat tied up a short distance from the site of the accident.

Mr. and Mrs. Paul and two others in the car, Mrs. And Mrs. George Hisle of Lexington, escaped from the sinking car through the windows and swam to safety. Mr. Hisle, owner of the car is a former Clark Countian.

Deputy Sheriffs O. P.   Johnson and Ben Allen, who with State Trooper James McMullin directed the recovery of the bodies, quoted Paul as saying the group was in route to Dripping Rock on the Clark County side of the river for a weekend fishing trip.

Officers said the approach to the river was a straight stretch of blacktopped roadway and they quoted Paul as saying he was driving about 40 miles per hour, unaware that he was nearing the river. The ferryboat was on the opposite side of the river, tied on the Madison County bank.

Coroner James W. Bean said the car, plunged into 14 feet of water about 30 feet from the Clark bank at about 9:15 p.m. and was hauled out of the water at 11:50 p.m.

Paul, diving from the ferryboat repeatedly, said that he was unable to reach the two children trapped in the rear section of the car. He said the doors were locked.

Townsend, who heard the crash, jumped into the river to assist the Pauls and Hisles. The baby, Carol Ann, was pulled through a window of the car by her mother. In trying to reach the shoreline, Carol Ann was swept from her mother’s arms and rescued by Townsend. Townsend, giving the child artificial respiration, was credited with saving the baby’s life. The child was taken to the Clark County Hospital where her condition was reported as satisfactory.

Officers said the Townsend and Paul made repeated efforts to reach the car which held the two victims.   The car was on the bottom the river in an estimated depth of 14 feet.

Paul is a house painter and is employed in Lexington.

W. Dixey, of Hendersonville, this county, that he must leave the county. Dr. Dixey is a reputable and well-liked man of undaunted courage. It will be remembered that Hendersonville was the scene of numerous incendiary fires last year which culminated in the lynching of Fate Payne, a negro. Since then there was an exciting rival at Gallatin of seven other negroes charged with barn burning, resulting in a hung jury, and Hendersonville has been the seat of much disorder and bad feeling ever since. Dr. Dixey is not the man to run, and will be backed by the best citizens of the community.

Just as Undertaker Walker finished placing the flowers on the grave, she raised her hand, and, pointing toward the mound, said: “My brother, your murder shall be avenged!   If not by the courts, then by my own right hand, so help me God.” There was not a quiver in her voice, and those who heard her utter the words were deeply impressed with the firm determination manifested.”

Payne, M.O. Flem Man’s foot

Incased in a shoe, dragged about by dog leads to discovery

Glasgow, Ky., – The body of a man, identified as M.O. Flem Payne, 36, was found in the woods, three miles from Fountain Run. A dog was noticed dragging an object about the yard, which on investigation, was found to be a shoe containing a human foot. Later the skull bones and clothing together with a watch and pocketbook were found 50 yards from the road in the woods. Besides a considerable amount of money the pocketbook contained papers which established the identity. Near by was a tree which had been struck by lightening, and the supposition is that Payne had taken refuge under the tree during a rain.

Joel Noel, who is serving a ten years sentence in the United States prison at Atlanta, Ga., will be released on the 27th of this month, having served seven years and gained the other three years as his good time, there never having been a mark against him. It will be remembered that Noel killed Lockkeeper Pearce at High Bridge. The trouble occurred on government ground, hence he was tried and sentenced in the Federal court at Covington. At the time of conviction he had a wife and nine children, but since his incarceration one of his daughters has died and several of his other children have married.

Peck, Mrs. W. H. A remarkable suit for damages is pending in the United States Circuit Court at Chattanooga, Tenn. The plaintiff, W. H. Peck, was agent for the Knoxville Southern railroad at Grundy, Tenn., his wife assisting him. The receiver ordered the telegraph office at Grundy closed, and the operator took out the instrument, leaving the wires still attached to a table in a room in the depot building. On May 1, 1890, Mrs. Peck was sitting at the table in the depot to which the wires were attached, unaware of the danger. A thunder storm arose and the lightening striking the wire entered the room and killed Mrs. Peck. Mr. Peck charges that this was due to negligence and carelessness on the part of the railroad, and asks for damages to the amount of $25,000.

When on a lonesome stretch of the pike, about half way from the church and home and while passing a rock pile on the side of the pike, a man rose up with a shotgun and fired, the load striking Peck, killing him instantly.

For Safe Keeping

Alvin Burgess, Accused Of Killing Walter Peck, Taken To Maysville

Flemingsburg, Ky., Nov. 15

Alvin Burgess, accused of killing Walter Peck, near Tilton, was taken to the Maysville jail for safekeeping. Great indignation prevails in the vicinity of the killing, and while no immediate danger was anticipated, it was thought best to take no chances of another assault on the jail, such as was experienced last winter. Peck’s funeral was largely attended, and his death is the leading topic of conversation on the street. There has been no demonistration toward violence.   There are three other prisoners in jail here charged with or convicted of murder. Burgess’examining trial was set for Tuesday.

Pursued By Mobs.

Two Alleged Murderers Taken to Covington For Safe Keeping.

Covington, Ky., Nov. 20.—After being pursued by mobs in two counties, two men, charged with murder, were locked up in the Covington jail Wednesday morning. They are Alvin Burgess, of near Flemingsburg, Fleming county, Ky., and George Bentz, of Mays Lick, Mason county, Ky. They were taken to Covington jail in the early morning. Bentz and Burgess were first placed in the jail at Brooksville, and it was there that the authorities first received word that the mobs had been formed and were approaching the place. Sheriff Robinson of Mason county, had just time to take them away when the company of those who were after the men arrived.

The two prisoners were taken by a devious route toward Brooksville, where it was intended to keep them. But the mob arrived there first. While on the way the sheriff received a warning and he turned back with his prisoners to Wellsburg, much to the disappointment of the mob, which thought that it had the men surely in its hands. The mob had taken a cross country route and arrived in Brooksville in time to be lined up before the jail ready for the sheriff. The latter, however, put his prisoners onboard a freight train and soon had his men in Covington. They were locked in separate cells. Burgess was morose when locked up. He said that he had no statement to make. The crime with which he is charged is the killing of a 16-year-old boy named Walter Peck last Sunday. It appears that the boy was going to a church a little distance from where Burgess worked and that a fence was being built near there also. Peck offered to help build the fence and, in some way, became involved in an altercation with Burgess, who shot him. Bentz had a duel with a saloonkeeper, Robert Owsley, at Mays Lick. The latter fired at him twice, but missed, while Bentz’s bullet went true.

Peddler The grand jury unearthed an old case of murder at the recent session of the Circuit Court, which, if the indictment can be sustained will furnish another illustration of the old adage, that “ the mills of the gods grind slow but they grind exceedingly fine.” In the fall of 1878 a peddler disappeared from the Buck Horn neighborhood in this county, but what had become of him could never fully established.   The entrails of a man were found in Buck Horn creek shortly afterward, and it was supposed they were formerly of this peddler, but this could not be proved . One man was indicted and tried for killing him, but he proved an alibi and escaped. Subsequent troubles in the community have brought out witnesses who testify that Stephen Campbell has confessed that he murdered the peddler. On this statement and corroborating testimony the grand jury indicted Campbell. As to whether or not proof sufficient can be procured to convict, remains to be seen.   The grand jury was satisfied to make the indictment–Jackson Hustler.

Pendleton, F. P. The Courier-Journal of Saturday contained a portrait of Mayor F. P. Pendleton and the following sketch of him and our city:

“F. P. Pendleton, Mayor of Winchester, is a native of Clark county and a son of Capt. D. J. Pendleton, who was an officer in Gen. Morgan’s command, and who since the war has been School Commissioner, and is now County Surveyor of Clark County.   Mayor Pendleton is actively engaged in business at Winchester. He is happily married, and has a family of four children. He is a man of earnest conviction and of courage, a Democrat of the strictest ort, and has always been an active worker for the success of the party. He was elected Mayor in February 1800, succeeding Mayor John E. Garner. During his administration the city has been prosperous in a marked degree. In that time a splendid system of water work has been built, street car lines established, the city limits extended and several miles of Macadamized streets and brick pavements built. All these and other improvements have been made without increasing the rate of taxation, which is only fifty cents on the hundred dollars on a low assessed valuation. The city is out of debt, always has money in the treasury, and all its financial operations are conducted on a cash basis. Surveys have been made for a new system of sewerage, and this and other improvements re-contemplated for the present year. Winchester’s school system is one of the prides of its people.   It has three academies besides its graded schools and well equipped and in handsome buildings”.

Pendleton, Mrs. Clara In memorium

Mrs. Clara Pendleton, wife of Roy Pendleton, died at the home of her father, B.T. Carls, November 19, 1909, after a sickness of two weeks. She leaves a young husband, one infant, two weeks old, father and mother, two sisters, three brothers, and all who know her to mourn her loss. She was a devoted Christian and a member of the Grassy Lick Methodist church. It seems so strange that one so young, only twenty-two years old, good and useful, should be snatched away so unexpectedly, yet we realize our loss is God’s gain, and that she is far beyond the land of sickness and pain, to meet her Savior face to face and live in glory forever. We know not how soon we may be called to meet her. The funeral was preached at home by Bro. Wright. The remains were laid to rest in the Mt. Sterling cemetery.

               –Dearest Clara, thou hast left us, And thy missing we greatly feel.

Yet it is God who has bereft us, And all our sorrows He can heel. Yet

again we hope to meet thee, When the days of life have fled, And in

heaven with joy greet thee, Where no farewell tears are shed.

Pendleton, Mrs. Mary Died, December 3rd, after a lingering and painful illness, Mary, wife of Thomas J. Pendleton. She leaves a husband and six little children to sustain this irreparable loss. And again the dark angel of death enters the home of our neighbor and takes its most precious and cherished inmate. It seems to us the greatest and saddest misfortune that can befall us in this life is to lose mother while we are yet in our infancy and childhood when we so much need her helpful advice and loving care. We say to our dear little schoolmates who are by this sad dispensation of Providence made orphans, you have our deepest sympathy in this dark hour of your earthly affliction.

Perkins, Mrs. Julia A Mystery Solved

The name of the mysterious woman who formerly resided at Ashland, and who committed suicide at a hotel in Wheeling last week, has been identified as Mrs. Julia Perkins. The Ashland Independent in speaking of her says:   “She was a woman of extraordinary culture, and had traveled extensively in Europe. Before committing the awful act she wrote a letter to her sister at Akron, Ohio, saying she could not bear the prospect of living in poverty. She was a woman accustomed to affluence. She always refused to disclose her name, but would say, “ I am now living on huske, and I am too proud to let my friends know it.”   However, she was well dressed and looked like a woman who at least had the comforts of life. She left a remarkable impression on persons who conversed with her; she was so interesting, entertaining, and so broadly informed.”

Peters, Walker J. There are two classes of people in Mexico—the rich and the poor, (God help the poor; the rich can take care of themselves) and despotism was never worse in Russia. The poor often suffer for the necessities of life, while the rich grow fat in cattle and lands. Most of the land in and around Chihuahua is owned either by Senor Terrojas or Senor Enrique Creel. Both are bankers and large dealers in cattle. Senor Creel is the father-in-law of Mr. Walker J. Peters, deceased, formerly one of Mt. Sterling’s brilliant and gifted sons, who gained the end that most men seek and few attain, that is wealth, renown and a beautiful and lovely wife.

Phillips, Grant OUR West Bend correspondent give the following account of a killing Saturday night on Hardwick’s Creek, near Clay City. Will Hockenhimer and Grant Phillips had some time ago been engaged in a difficulty but it was settled at the time and no further trouble was apprehended.   They were returning from a party together and Hockenhimer fired his pistol in the air and in a moment without further warning, placed the weapon at Phillips’ back and fired, the ball passing out through the abdomen inflicting a wound from which he died in a few minutes. Hockenhimer was arrested and placed in jail at Stanton. The victim was a son of Dock Phillips, of Clay City, and was highly respected. Our correspondent says public feeling is wrought up to a very high pitch over the murder which was entirely unprovoked.

The Democrat,   Wednesday, December 16, 1891.

 

Wm. Hockenhimer, who killed Grant Phillips, of Clay City last week, was held over in $5,00 bail to await the action of the Circuit Court.

Philpot, Bob Bloody Tragedy

In Manchester, Clay County, Ky.—Two Men Killed in a Fight

Barbourville, Ky., Jan. 13.—Reliable news reaches here of another bloody tragedy in Manchester, Clay county, on last Monday, in which Bob Philpot and James Bundy were killed. The fight was the result of the killing which occurred there on Christmas day when Philpot’s brother and Bundy’s brother were killed.

A great deal of feeling exists between the Bundy’s and Philpot’s over the last election, which is ripening into another mountain feud and more trouble is looked for as the Philpot and the Bundy families are the largest in Clay county.

Philpot, Robert Terrible Feud Outbreak.

Five Men Reported Killed in Clay county Ky.—War Between the Philpot and Morris Factions.

Louisville, Ky., July 18.—A special from London, Ky., tells of a report reaching here of the outbreak of another feud in Clay county by which five men lost their lives Monday.

The dead are said to be: Robert Philpot, Ed Fisher, Aaron Morris, Jim Griffin and Hugh Griffin.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Phipps, W. R. A deserved tribute

At a meeting of the session of the First Presbyterian church held a few days since the following tribute to the life and character of a most noble Christian man was adopted. The Sun-Sentinel commends the tribute for two fundamental reasons. The first, that every word is absolutely true of the man and the second is that the kind words are said of him while he lives and his ears can hear and his heart appreciate kindness and love. With sincerest regret we are called upon to note the departure from our midst of our beloved father, and fellow laborer W. R. Phipps. As a session, we wish to bear record to our distinct loss of one of our number who has been a living example to us, in holding first in importance the interests of the cause of Christ, as represented by his and our church. As a Brotherhood man, he has been the most earnest and active working member of us all. His consecrated life, his sincere devotion, and his active service have made him distinctly a marked man in the community. We believe the united sentiment of the congregations will be that we are losing from among us, the one who lived nearest and walks most with God. We shall very greatly miss his prayers, his words and his work. We wish him God’s richest blessings during the remaining years of his life. For the sake of the church militant we would desire that he might yet be spared a score of years for service, but for his own sake we pray that God may continue him with his people on earth yet a little while and that, in his blessed time, he may gather him. An exceptionally ripened and faithful sheaf, into his garden, the home land where we trust we may all meet him in the not very distant future.

Funeral of J.M. Pickrell

Nothing of recent occurrence has given a greater shock to our people than the announcement Thursday afternoon of the sudden death of James M. Pickrell. He had been in the city a few hours before, but a sudden attack of acute indigestion caused his death in a few minutes. He was forty-one years of age and was one of our most influential business men. He came here from Mt. Sterling about eight years ago and at first was interested in what is now the electric light and ice plant and also in the street railway. He afterward bought the Dudley place on the Lexington pike where he resided at the time of his death. He leaves a wife, who was formerly Miss Richards of Sharpsburg and one daughter, Mrs. William P. French. Funeral services were held at the residence Saturday morning at ten o’clock, by Rev. T.J. Porter, and the burial was in Macpelah cemetery at Mt.

Pieratt, George A Horrible Death-The Owingsville Outlook says:

Below is appended the sickening details of the death of old man, George Pieratt which occurred on Friday morning of last week, of which his neighbors were ignorant until late the next morning. George Pieratt and his sister, both quite old and the latter a helpless invalid, lived all alone in their little cabin in the western portion of this county and about four miles from town. Early Friday morning George Pieratt was seen to pitch forward into the fire.   With a superhuman effort the poor old bed-ridden woman dragged her palsied body out of bed and toward her brother, whose charred and disfigured body she at last succeeded in dragging from the fire. She then extinguished his burning clothing and being unable to regain her bed she got upon a lounge nearby on which there was but ode thin covering. Here she lay throughout that long dreary day and the still longer night, her only company being the dead and horribly disfigured body of her brother. The fire burned lower and lower and finally went out leaving the poor woman a prey to hunger, thirst, and cold. What her suffering must have been, no one can imagine, but unconsciousness finally came to her relief in which condition she was found by one of the neighbors on Saturday morning. The vigorous application of restoratives soon brought her around all right. During the night the cats had eaten the flesh from the face of the corpse which presented a sight as ghastly as the eye ever looked upon. The old woman thinks her brother died with heart disease, as he did not move after he fell. The deceased belonged to one of the oldest families in this county, his father having came over with Lafayette.

Pieratt, R. M. No section of the State can show a sadder official record than death has made in Eastern Kentucky within less than twenty years. First, Judge John M. Elliott, of the Court of Appeals, fell dead on our streets at the hands of an assassin, afterwards sentenced to death and later declared insane.   Judge Richard Reid, of Mt. Sterling, of the Superior Court, died by his own hand. Senators Joseph Garder, R. M. Pieratt and James S. Hargis died while in the performance of their official duties. Congressman W. P. Taulbee was killed in Washington; Judge Van B. Young, of the Superior Court, was scarcely at rest in the grave before Congressman J. W. Kendall followed him. It is a mournful record, which all will hope may never be repeated elsewhere.—-Frankfort Capital.

Pierce, conductor Friday evening Conductor Pierce was shot and killed at Yosemite, this State, by Al. Watkins, because the conductor made love to his wife. Watkins was a bad man generally, and sent word to Pierce’s fireman, James Fincham; that he would serve him the same way. When Watkins went to Fincham’s home a couple of days later, the latter came out with a shot gun and without waiting for words filled Watkins so full of buckshot that he died in a few minutes.

Coroner Brinegar was summoned and made an investigation without a jury and returned a verdict that the drug was taken with suicidal intent. A bottle which contained strychnine was found and she had evidently taken a large dose. After taking it she desired to get well and asked that a physician be summoned but it was too late. She leaves a husband but no children. Her husband was not at home at the time, having gone to work. Before her marriage she was Miss Flynn, and a brother John Flynn, committed suicide several years ago. No special cause was known in either case. The remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery, services at the church and conducted by Rev. French.

PIERSALL-Died at his residence near Pilot View. WILLIAM S. PIERSALL aged 30 years 1 month and 12 days.

“Death come equally to us all and makes us all equal when it comes it is no respecter of rank and station but brings alike the aristocracy and plebeian to one final resting place-the grave. It has made desolate the home of our beloved friend and brother, Willie Piersall, who fell a victim to the dread disease, typhoid fever. Scarcely two weeks had passed from the beginning of his illness when the “Messenger” came, and one more young heart was stilled forever, one more spirit had passed beyond earth’s toils and cares to heaven’s rest and perfect bliss.

As a comfort to sorrowing loved ones he leaves them the “blessed assurance that he was a Christian the Jesus was his, and during the few clear moments preceding death, he expressed a willingness to go and be with Him.

At the age of twelve years he professed faith in Christ and since that time has lived a consistent member of Ephesus congregation, leading a pure and assuming Christian life.   His disposition was so modest and retiring that only close friends understood the beauties of his quiet life.   As a neighbor he was kind, courteous and obliging as a citizen, industrious and loyal was twice married, his wives being sisters, formerly Misses Black. We deeply sympathize with his bereaved family, especially the little orphaned daughter left alone to brave the storms of life with “Mamma” “Papa” and little brother, all safe at home with Jesus. We fain would throw a protecting arm around the tiny form, and commit her to the care of Him who has promised to be a “Father to the fatherless”. He will be a husband a comforter. A Christian writer says “There is no darkness that gathers about any of God’s children into which he does not send some beams of brightness: no life so dark and full of grief into which he does not pour some of the splendor of Heaven.” “This heavy cross does not signify anger, dear wife; it may be but a trial of your faith, a test of your love. Two loving sisters mourn the loss of an only brother, but may this sad affliction enable them to sing more earnestly.” “Closer to Thee, my Savior, draw me”.

To the dear “old folks” father and mother, this sorrow must have fallen heaviest. So many loved ones in glory, but his, the strongest tie that binds them nearer Heaven. Perchance the unfinished conversation between father and son will be resumed in eternity or better still, he may be speaking to you yet from the grave, or through song. Methinks I hear sweet music from the “Heavenly Choir.” They are singing from “Hymns New and Old.” No, He and I recognize a familiar voice on the last stand, wafting back to the erring of earth glad tidings of comfort and joy.   We eagerly accept the good news and catching up the sweet refrain, respond.

“Yet, again we hope to meet thee.” “When the day of life is fled. And in Heaven, with joy to guide thee. Where no farewell tear is shed.”

Pigg, Leslie Tragic death

Leslie Pigg dies of poison administered by his own hand

Saturday evening about seven o’clock Leslie Pigg went into the Rees House saloon and asked barkeeper Bradley for a drink of water. He had evidently been drinking but was not drunk. The water was given to him and he dropped into it a tablet from a box in his hand and swallowed it. There was nothing to indicate that any desperate purpose lurked in his brain and he seemed quiet and composed. After the lapse of a few minutes he called for whiskey and asked those present to drink with him at the same time remarking that it would be the last drink he would ever take. About this time the barkeeper noticed that the box from which the tablets were taken was labeled “Morphine” and he at once divined that the drug was taken with suicidal intent. In a few moments it began to act and he was taken to his room, corner of Maple and Washington streets, and a physician, Dr. Browne was summoned. All that could be done for the unfortunate man was done but without avail. He died about ten o’clock. In the absence of Coroner Crim, Squire Wills held an inquest. A jury was impaneled, which after viewing the body and hearing the evidence brought in a verdict in accordance with the facts given about. The jury was composed of the following: M.T. McDonald, E.S. Bean, John McCoy, Tom Baskett, Henry Boone and W.P. Hackett. His relatives at Richmond were notified and the remains taken there on the noon train Sunday. Mr. Pigg was twenty-four years old and was a handsome and intelligent young man. He came here last summer and opened a saloon at the corner of Maple and Washington streets. He developed a fondness for whiskey and lewd women, a combination which has wrecked so many promising young men. He spent his substance in riotous living, and since Christmas reached the end of his financial career. He was indicted by the recent grand jury for several minor offenses, and a damage suit against Chief of Police Donahoe for alleged illegal imprisonment is now pending. Notwithstanding his many faults, those who knew him best, say he was a big hearted, generous man. He was a son of W.W. Pigg, a wealthy citizen of Madison county, and a brother-in-law of Jailer Wilkerson, of Fayette county. No motive is known for his suicide as he could have obtained any reasonable amount of money from his father.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday, March 10, 1896

 

An unsolvable mystery

Col. B.J. Newlon, of the Owenton Herald, in commenting on the sad suicide of Leslie Pigg, says:   “A sad taking off was that of Leslie Pigg at Winchester last Saturday evening, an account of which is given in another part of this paper. The youngest child of a wealthy father and mother whose devotion we have never seen surpassed, with everything that his world can bestow apparently to make life a splendid success, he ruthlessly throws that life away when just upon its threshold. Such things are among the mysteries that can never be solved this side of that great day when everything will be made plain. May the good Lord, in his infinite wisdom, bind up the broken hearts of this mother and father, and teach them that these light afflictions which endure but for a moment shall work out for them a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”

Obituary

At his residence, near Indian Fields, Ky., after a long and painful illness. William Pigg departed this life on the 21st inst., in the 67th year of his age. His funeral was preached by the Rev. W. W. Caudell to a large crowd of sympathizing friends and he was laid to rest in the family burying ground.

The subject of this sketch was born in Clark County, Ky., on the 23rd day of February, 1829, and lived all his life within two and a half miles of his birthplace. On the 6th day of November, 1851 he was married to Miss Eliza A. Barrow, daughter of Augustin Barrow, of Montgomery County, Ky. Their union was blessed with three children, two of which died in their infancy. His widow, one daughter, Mrs. E. L. Butler, and a grandson, W. C. Butler, whom he raised, survive him and mourn his loss. In his death the wife loses a devoted husband and the daughter an affectionate and indulgent father and the community an honest, upright, gentleman, being converted at the early age of 17 and afterwards uniting with the Old Baptist. His life has been even as an open book to be read and learned of all men, and he took over ready to give a reason for the hope within him, and when the final summons came it found him ready and awaiting to be absent from the flesh and present with the Lord. Surely man’s faith was never stronger. And to the grief stricken family we would say, “Mourn not as those that have no hope.” As it has pleased   an All-wise Heavenly Father to take him from us, let us bow in humble submission to His holy will, having for our consolation the precious promise found in Revelations, 14th Chapter and 13th Verse, which reads, “Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, from henceforth yea saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors and their works do follow them.” And although he will walk no more among us we will ever cherish his memory and ever pray that our faith may be as strong as his.

Peace be to his ashes.

Pinks, Jack Report of pistol was heard

And the battle between Kentucky factions was on

Lexington, Ky., – A desperate battle is reported to have occurred in the mountains of Magoffin county, in which one man was killed and several others severely wounded. The dead man is Jack Pinks, who was shot through the heart by Nero Howard. One of the wounded men is Charles Howard, shot by George Wirman. Howard is a brother of Nero Howard and Wirman is Jack Pink’s father-in-law. Howard badly wounded in the hip. Nero Howard was shot and badly wounded by an unknown man. The fight occurred at a voting place on the Upper licking river in Magoffin county and several fist fights occurred. Finally some one drew and fired a pistol and the battle was on. Jack Pink’s was killed early in the action. A minute later Charles Howard fell wounded in the hip by George Wirman. Then Nero Howard, who had killed Pinks, was shot by a man who escaped under cover of the darkness before being reorganized. All the parties escaped into the mountains. No arrest have been made. All the men have had trouble before and had been prominently identified with mountain feud troubles. The two families head large factions and more trouble is feared when members of the families meet.

Plantation Hands                 AA A BATTLE

Between a Sheriff’s Posse and Colored Plantation Hands.

Two Colored Men Killed and Several Mortally Wounded.

Nine Captured, While Others make their Escape to the Brush-None of the Whites Hurt-Great Excitement Near Clarksdale, Miss.

CLARKSDALE, Miss., Oct. 3.-Sheriff Harris, of this place, was notified early Sunday morning by Deputy Fitzgerald, of Friar’s Point, to at once organize an armed posse and proceed to the plantation of Mr. J. K. Wilkinson, a large planter, west of Bobs, a small station eight miles south of this place, to put down an insurrection among the colored people in that locality against the whites.

Sheriff Harris promptly complied, and in a short time had an armed posse, consisting of twenty-seven men from this place and Friar’s Point, moving to the scene.

Authentic information has just been received that two colored men were killed outright and nine captured, and are now on the way to Friar’s Point heavily guarded.

In addition to the two men killed, several are said to be mortally wounded. The blacks took to the brush and are still out all armed.   None of the whites are reported hurt.

From confessions made by some of the prisoners, it is learned that they have organized an order among themselves, comprising the whole neighborhood, with passwords and grips, with the avowed for the purpose of killing the whites. The greatest excitement prevails. The colored men are thoroughly organized, and fears are entertained that the end has not been reached.

Mr. Sessions, manager of the plantation, was fired upon three times Saturday but was not hurt. The town is without telegraphic facilities and the Wilkinson place somewhat in the interior, therefore news is somewhat scarce.

Plunket, James A Louisville Post special Saturday says a sad story is that of James Plunket, a Pendleton county prisoner who was sent to the Frankfort pen for stealing cattle. Plunket had been there but a short time and was taken violently ill. He lay hopelessly sick in the prison hospital, and as the days passed grew worse. Chaplain Shepherd called to see him each day and noticed him sinking, and when satisfied he would not recover went to the prison physician, Dr. Stewart, and asked how long Plunket was for this world. He found that he would not last through the night. The Chaplain went at once to the bedside of Plunket and told him he was going to die, and asked if there was any message he would like to leave. The prisoner looked up, and with his last breath, told the good prison official that he was innocent of the charge for which he was sent there and to say so to his friends. Within two minutes he was dead.

Plunkett, Ben TO HANG

The Death Penalty Given to Dillard Rainey.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A few years ago when the scene of the famous French-Eversole war was transferred from Perry county here, among the men who were under arrest charged with participation in the Eversole side, was a boy seventeen or eighteen years of age, with the face of an angel and the heart of a tiger. It was Frank Polly, probably the most desperate fighter on the Eversole side. When all the prosecutions were finally dismissed Polly went back to the mountains. It was rumored here that he killed his uncle with a maul shortly after being in Winchester, but this was afterward denied. He finally drifted over into Virginia where last week he fell out with one Frank Riggs and proceeded to kill him in the old Perry county fashion. Riggs was wounded but got away. Constable Blondell and Ed. Clark went to arrest Polly. The latter drew a big knife and cut the Constable so severely that he will die. Clark shot Polly killing him instantly.

Pool, Willie Three weeks ago today, Willie Pool, some fourteen years of age, was struck in the head with a brickbat by a negro boy named Allen Duvall, who came here not long ago from Harrodsburg. The skull was fractured, but the injury did not seem serious, and in a few days Willie was going about and has since been attending school. Last Saturday morning whilst preparing to go fishing he fell insensible and gradually sank until Sunday night, when he died. A postmortem examination showed that the skull had been crushed. Willie was the son of Mr. W. F. Pool, and was a bright little fellow. His family have the sympathy of the community in their affliction.

The negro boy who killed him left town Sunday, but was captured Monday evening by Sheriff Evans.   The examining trial took place Tuesday, ________,F. S. Allen, and resulted_________ held to trial in the sum_________ which he could not give and was sent to jail.

At the poor house

The ladies of the W.C.T.U. held services

Tuesday afternoon quite a number of ladies of the W.C.T.U., went out to the Poor   House to hold services for the benefit of the inmates, who do not often have the     comfort of spiritual cheer. They received a cordial welcome from Keeper Brock and     his excellent wife, and all the inmates who were physically able were gathered together   in the main building, where the President of the Society, Mrs. C.F. Klein conducted a most interesting and helpful service. The rooms of those who were disabled or too ill to attend, were visited and words of consolation and prayer were offered in their behalf. At the conclusion of the services the ladies distributed grapes, cakes and other delicacies to the older people, and the little ones were remembered with candies, paper dolls and picture cards. A handsome bouquet of beautiful flowers was also presented to each of the inmates. The occasion was pleasant and profitable to all concerned, and was an epoch in the lives of the unfortunates that will be gratefully remembered for many a day. The Democrat trusts that other societies and individuals will find time from the busy walks of life, to occasionally go out and take with them the spirit of the Master, and also not forgetting the dainty and nourishing comforts of the physical man. Among the ladies of the Society who went out were: Mrs. W.H. Ecton, Mrs. Dr. Venable, Mrs. J.E. Wood, Mrs. C.F. Klein, Miss Retta Davis, Mrs. M.A. Prewitt, Mrs. Jane Broadhurst, Mrs. Geo. W. Biehn, Mrs. Sue K. Garnett, Mrs. A.R. Baldwin, Mrs. Fred Broadhurst, Mrs. Jas. Oliver and Miss Annie Wood.

Porter, J. J. Death of Dr. Porter

Pastor of the Baptist church dies after a lingering illness – Will be buried here

About 9:30 o’clock yesterday morning the spirit of Dr. J.J. Porter, pastor of the Baptist church, this city, returned to the God who gave it, and the tenement of clay to be carried to the tomb. For some time he had been a great sufferer from diabetes and other complications and while his condition was known to be serious, but few expected         his death so suddenly. He was fifty-three years old and a native of Pulaski county, this State. A year or more ago, while residing at Joplin, Mo., he was called to the pulpit of   the Baptist church, this city, then vacant, and accepted the call. He moved to this city, bought a home and identified himself with Winchester, and was an advocate of all things that have a tendency to build up our city, spiritually or financially. He leaves a wife and eight children, some of them grown and others small. He was a member of the local camp of Modern Woodmen, in which he held three thousand dollars insurance. He also belonged to other orders, but not to the local lodges. The remains will be buried in the local cemetery, and the funeral services will be held at three o’clock this afternoon at the Baptist church, services by Dr. J.W. Porter, of Lexington, and Dr. W.D. Powell,       of Louisville. The pall bearers will be principally the Deacons of the church: N.H. Witherspoon, P.Y. Drake, J.K. Allen, W.H. Tucker, J.M. Stevenson, H.G. Garrett, Clay F. Haggard, S.P. Hodgkin, A.R. Martin, Clay Boone, John C. Allan, and Joe S. Lindsay. Honorary pall bearers: B.B. Bailey, D.D., J.W. Porter, D.D., W.D. Powell, D.D., T.C. Stackhouse, D.D., Rev. Richard French, J.N. Conkwright, J.W. Womack, C.E. Lyddane. The deceased was a highly educated man, of strong convictions, and forcible expression. He was counted as one of the strong men of the Baptist denomination, and had been quite successful both as a pastor and in the evangelistic field. His many friends will greatly deplore his untimely death.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday, June 22, 1909

 

Funeral of Dr. Porter

The Baptist church was crowded to repletion Tuesday afternoon at the funeral services   of Dr. J.J. Porter. The invocation was by W.D. Powell, of Louisville, the Scripture reading by Dr. B.B. Bailey, of Shelbyville, the address by Dr. J.W. Porter, of Lexington, and the benediction by Dr. T.C. Stackhouse, of Fayette county. The remarks of Dr. Porter were directed to the life and character of the deceased as a man and a minister. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful including a number of set pieces. The remains were carried to the cemetery where the grave was ready for its reception, but were not buried, on account of the non-arrival of Dr. Porter’s brother, Rev. T.J. Porter, of Roanoke, Alabama. Dr. Porter was regarded as one of the strong men of his denominations in the South, and his services were in active demand. He was born in Pulaski county, this State, and grew to manhood there. He was educated at Bethel College Russellville, and took his theological course at the Louisville Baptist Theological Seminary. He was ordained in 1879 at Mt. Pisgah church, Pulaski county. The degree of Doctor of Divinity was conferred by Ewing College, Illinois. For quite awhile he preached in Owen county and afterward at Jerseyville, Illionois, Mexico and Joplin, Mo., coming to Winchester from the latter place. He was a profound thinker and had written several works on church subjects. He belonged to the Modern Woodmen, the Masons, Knights of Pythias, and Odd Fellows. He held life insurance to the amount of seven thousand dollars. His death removes from our midst a strong man of deep convictions and great earnestness of purpose and we shall not soon look upon his equal.

Was buried Wednesday

Rev. T.J. Porter, of Roanoke, Alabama, arrived here Tuesday night and the remains of his brother, Dr. J.J. Porter, which had been placed in the vault pending his arrival were buried the next morning, only members of the family being present.

Insurance paid

Mr. Roy Smith, Clerk of Raleigh Camp Modern Woodmen of America, received a     draft yesterday for three thousand dollars from the Head Camp, being the amount of insurance carried by the late Rev. Porter in the order. The insurance is made payable to   his widow, Mrs. Dollie Porter.

Porter, Pascal THE BOY PREACHER

Pascal Porter, the famous boy preacher, has been holding forth at the court house during the past week to crowded houses. At the beginning of his series of discourses most of our people were skeptical as to whether his sermons were his own production, but nearly every one is now convinced that they are genuine. In fact, to deny this would be only to shift the difficulty without removing it, for a memory capable of retaining an extensive series of sermons delivered in words far above the comprehension of the ordinary boy, would be but little less marvelous than a precocity of intellect that would be sufficient to produce them. Both his intellect and memory in this particular direction are remarkable, and his sermons are delivered with an impressiveness that convinces the hearer that he understands and means what he says. His grammar and pronunciation are not faultless, but his historical and scientific allusions are nearly always correct.

He deals with the sin of man and the mercy, truth, and love of God in the abstract and shows the little knowledge of men and things that might be expected of one whose experience and observation have been so limited. His ideas are permisitic in the highest degree and he believes the world has been steadily growing worse since the fall of Adam, and that the time is almost here when God will destroy the existing order of things and inaugurate a new reign. He was born and now lives near Madison, Indiana, and will be thirteen years old in a few weeks. His parents are of English extraction and are persons of moderate means. He has not had the advantages of a finished education and shows no more than the usual aptitude for mathematics or other studies except historical, geography, language and biblical lore. At the age of five years he showed especial fondness for the new testament, and at the age of nine began speaking in public.   He belongs to the religious sect known as the Adventists, who look for the early coming of Christ.

In his nature he is much like other boys, being more than usually fond of athletic sports. He is the youngest of seven children but the only one of these that shows any special gifts. His precocity in that direction is possibly due to pre-natal influences, as several months before his birth the community where he was born was highly excited by a series of religious meetings, and his mother was particularly influenced by them. He is certainly a marvelous development of intellect, and well deserve the attention he receives.

When he went into the death cell he told the jailer that he did not wish to see any preachers or reporters; that he had his own idea of things on this earth, and he did not wish to be annoyed the few remaining days he has to stay here.

Portwood’s Wife.

Frankfort, Ky., Nov. 22.—Mrs. Geo. A Portwood, wife of the condemned Lexington murderer, who is to be hanged on the 30th inst., arrived here Monday morning to petition Gov. Bradley to extend clemency and commute the sentence to life imprisonment. The governor granted her personal interview and will finally pass on the case within the next day or two. Mrs. Portwood makes a rather peculiar plea. She has been living apart from her husband for several years, and interests herself in the case only to prevent the disgrace that the hanging of Portwood would bring upon her and her two daughters. She told the governor that Portwood had expressed a desire to be hanged and that he was undoubtedly insane.

Poston, Henry G. The death of Henry G. Poston last Thursday takes from us an active useful citizen. A resident here during his entire life which had almost reached the three score years and ten allotted to man, he leaves few surviving him who are better known to the people of the county. A peculiar man in temperament and manner, he was not always understood by those with whom he mingled, and although as industrious as anybody that we ever knew, he was not successful in business.   Earnest and almost fanatical in whatever he professed to believe, we who differed with him in nearly everything that men entertain opinions about have always found him generous and kindly, public-spirited and liberal minded. The crowd that gathered at his funeral though the rain Friday afternoon, showed the estimation in which a positive decided man will be held even though he differ with his neighbors.

Resolved, That we cheerfully testify that he was a warm friend and advocate of our school enterprise, that his counsels and actions were entirely free from selfishness, full of zeal and earnestness. Resolved, That we extend to his friends and especially to his stricken family our warmest sympathies. Resolved, That this school be dismissed to attend his funeral services in a body. By order of the Board. J.V. Morton, Ch’n. J.W. Fitch, Sec’y.

Poston, James                       AA A Fatal Shot.

Friday night about ten o’clock, James Poston, a negro who lived in Poynterville, was fatally shot by Hannah Boone, a negro woman with whom he had been living for several years. There were no witnesses to the shooting. She says it was done in self defense, while he in his dying statement, said the shooting was entirely unprovoked. They have had trouble frequently, and it is said that he broke her jaw in one of their fights. She gave herself up and was lodged in jail, where she now is. The wounded man lived until Sunday when he died. Coroner Wills impaneled a jury composed of H. T. Strother, J. M. Lawrence, J. S. Dills, M. E. Pace, J. C. Daugherty and J. M. Powell whose verdict simply recited the shooting without attempting to fix blame. The Grand Jury will be in session today and the matter will probably be referred to them for investigation.

The prisoner is an exceedingly tough character and is a sister to Cora Boone who is in jail charged with robbing the tailor, Sheridan.

One Killed and One Wounded in the First Encounter.

Whitesburg, Ky., July 14.—The United States mail carrier arriving here from Elkhorn creek, ten miles from here in the Eastern part of Letcher county, tells of another shooting there in which one man was killed outright and one severely wounded.

For several years there has been a difference growing between George Potter, aged 31, a notorious mountain tough, and Bob and John Killens, near neighbors. For six months they have been at daggers’ points, and a clash had been expected momentarily. A month ago Potter and his brother attempted to assassinate the Killens, but failed, after firing six shots. They never met again until Sunday afternoon, when the clash followed. They met at a wayside store, all armed to the teeth. George Potter, the most fearless man in the lot, opened fire on the Killens. William Potter followed, a close second. All their bullets went wide of the mark. The Killens, burning with bitter hatred, returned fire, and deadly volleys were exchanged for a few moments. When the smoke moved away George Potter, the Elkhorn creek terror for many years, lay dead on the ground, while Bob Killens was severely wounded.

Potts, Smith Vivion Died—At his residence near Pinchem, Wednesday, Rev. Smith Vivion Potts, aged 79 years. His funeral was preached the next day by Rev. Richard French and the remains interred in the cemetery here. He was three times married. His first wife was Miss Hunt, of this county; the second was Mrs. Mobly of Madison county and the last Mrs. Frances Ecton, who survives him. By his first wife he had two children. Mrs. Allan Bush, who died some years ago and Ed Potts of Shelby county. By his second wife he had one son who was killed by the cars a few years ago.

In the death of Mr. Potts, Clark county has lost one of her best and noblest men. Probably no one who has lived here for a long time has done more for the good of his fellow men. More than fifty years ago he began active work in the ministry of the Baptist church and kept it up until the infirmities of age forced him to quit. He was for a long time pastor of Mt. Olive and Ephesus churches in this county, but the most of his work was done as an evangelist in the mountains. On foot or on horseback, preaching in the rude schoolhouses, in the home under the trees anywhere he could secure an audience, he labored for many years with great success, but with little pay. He was among the last of the pioneer preachers.

Death of Mrs. Collingsworth.

Mrs. Frazer Collingsworth died may 22nd, at the home of Woodson Owen at Missouri, of cancer, aged eighty-four years.   She was originally Miss Frances Rainey, a native of this county. In early life she married Minor Griggs. They lived together until past middle age, and by industry and economy, accumulated a competence. The husband finally sickened and died and Mrs. Griggs, after the conventional time of mourning had elapsed, married William Estis. The angel of death passed that way again, and again Mrs. Estis was a widow. Fully believing that it is not good for either man or woman to be alone, she again stood before nuptial altar, this time with Jas. Ecton. Before many years had elapsed, she followed his remains to their last resting place, but nothing daunted, she again laid aside her widow’s weeds, this time at the solicitation of Rev. Smith V. Potts.   Death is not respecter of persons, and it was not very long before he, too, was gathered to his fathers, leaving a disconsolate widow. Still convinced that marriage is not a failure, and longing for the strong arm of a younger husband to support her declining Frazer Collingsworth, a young man who worked for her. For various reasons this marriage was not a happy one, and the groom left after squandering much of his wife’s possessions. She shortly afterward obtained a divorce from him and some time ago went to Missouri. It was reported here that she had married again a few months ago, but it is said to be untrue.

Powell, George Overcome By Gas.

On the farm of Jesse Glover there is an old well about thirty-five feet in depth, and which was being blown deeper. Shortly before night Tuesday a blast was put in and after the explosion, George Powell decided to go down and see the effects of the blast. The deadly carbonic acid gas had settled at the bottom of the well, and before reaching the bottom he was overcome and fell. Nev. Glover tried to go to his assistance but was overcome and had to be helped out. Jesse Glover also made an effort but was foiled by the fatal gas. The body was in the well for some time before it was recovered, and then life was extinct. Coroner Brinegar held an inquest the following day with the following jury: N. B. Sledd, C. S. Ramsey, Noah Shelton, J. W. Howard, Alonzo Shelton and C. E. Wilson, who returned a verdict in accordance with the facts given above. The remains were brought to the home of his father, Robert Powell, on Vine street, this city, where the funeral was preached yesterday by Rev. Richard French and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery. Mr. Powell was about twenty-five year of age and was twice married. His first wife was Miss Mary M. Hays, of this city. His last wife, to whom he had been married about a year, was Mrs. Jennie Finnell, of Missouri.

Powers, Clay “In The Shadows Of The Cumberland”

Marked papers containing advance notices of a book, soon to be issued with the above title has been received at this office. I cannot speak of the book, but I know something of the author, Frederick W. Powers. He is a son of Clay Powers who was engaged in the tavern and saloon business at Morehead, Rowan county, Kentucky, during the reign of terror produced by the Tollivers between 1880 and 1890. I did business along the line of the C. & O. railroad and Clay Powers was one of my customers. Getting off the fast train about 1 o’clock one morning I walked across to Powers’ tavern and found it wrecked. The windows and doors were broken in. The Tollivers, who also sold whisky, had determined to drive Powers out of business. On my advice Powers left Morehead and went to Covington, Kentucky, where he conducted a saloon. After the annihilation of the Tollivers by a posse of citizens under the command of Boone Logan, who now lives at Pineville, Ky., Powers returned to Morehead and died there several years ago.

When Clay Powers left Morehead his son, Fred, was about fifteen years old, and was a wild boy. His life had been spent amidst the very worst surroundings. At Covington he was brought under better influences and attended school. He did not return to Morehead with his father. He learned the jeweler’s trade and is now doing a prosperous business at Ashland, Ky. We will look forward to the appearance of his book with more than ordinary interest.

Wiley Taul Poynter died yesterday morning at Shelbyville, of kidney trouble, aged fifty-eight years. He was a native of Franklin county but came to Winchester in early life. When seventeen years old he taught school here, many of our most prominent citizens having been his pupils. While quite a young man he married Miss Pattie Poston, a daughter of the late Henry Poston. He was afterward a bookkeeper in the private bank of his father-in-law, and when the Clark county National Bank was instituted in 1865 he was its first cashier, a position he filled with much ability. His wife having died, he married Miss Kate E. Winn, a sister of Miss Lucy Winn, of this city. She did not live long and after her death he married Miss Clara Martin, of Paris, who survives him. Always a man of strong convictions, and an ardent Methodist, he entered the ministry and at once took a front rank. His first charge was the church of this place, and he afterward preached at Paris, Millersburg and other places. About fifteen years ago he took charge of the Science Hill school at Shelbyville where he has since labored. He leaves three children by his first wife, Henry Poynter, Cashier of the Shelbyville Bank; Fletcher Poynter of the Shelby Sentinel and Miss Annie Poynter, of the same city. By his second wife he had no children, while he has had several by his last wife. He leaves a number of brothers and sisters, among them Jas. W. and John D. of his city. The remains will be interred at Lexington, the morning at eight o’clock.

Poyntz, F. Edwin DUEL IN THE STREET.

Dr. Ed Poyntz Fatally and John C. Siler Dangerously Wounded.

Paint Lick, Ky., Oct. 21.-As the result of a pistol fuel here at 7:30 o’clock Dr. Ed Poyntz is dying and John C. Siler is dangerously wounded. Poyntz has five wounds while Siler has three. Siler is a hotel proprietor and well known horseman. The trouble arose over Poyntz inviting a friend who was stopping at Siler’s hotel to visit him at his boarding house. Apparently they drew their revolvers about the same time.   They were but 15 feet apart and each emptied his revolver. Poyntz has a wound through the body just below the heart, which, it is believed, will prove fatal. He was shot through both wrists and in the shoulder. Siler was struck in the hip, in the right hand and the tip of his left ear cut away by a bullet from Poyntz’s revolver. Poyntz used both hands in firing, and while bringing his pistol into position after he had received the wound in the body which may kill him, was shot through the wrists. The revolver fell from his hands, and he fell, exclaiming: “My god, he has killed me.” Siler stood coolly firing as fast as he could work his revolver. Both had 38-caliber weapons, one a Smith & Wesson, and the other a Colt’s. They had been good friends until a few days ago. Dr. Poyntz is the son of Dr. L. M. Poyntz, of Richmond, prominent in the organization of the Kentucky Confederate Veteran association.

Preston, Grace Louisville Tragedy

Druggist Bossung Killed His Sweetheart And Then Blew Off His Head With A Shotgun

Louisville, Ky., Sept. 28

John Bossung, who kept a drug store at Jefferson and Fourteenth streets, shot and killed Grace Preston, at 4 o’clock Thursday afternoon, and committed suicide.   Bossung and Grace Preston had had considerable trouble with each other lately, due principally, it is said, to Bossung’s jealously. At 2 p. m. Thursday the couple were seen to go upstairs to the rooms over the drug store where they lived, and it is said they quarreled for over two hours.   After two shots had been heard persons who entered the rooms found Grace Preston dead and in another room found Bossung who, after killing the woman, had blown off his head with a shotgun.

Prewitt, Caswell Sketch of Nominee.

We extract the following sketch of the Democratic nominee for State Senator from the Mt. Sterling advocate: “Mr. Caswell Prewitt, Democratic nominee for the State Senator for the counties of Clark, Bourbon and Montgomery, is 58 years old, a prosperous farmer, and possessing much general information having been a close student. He is a Democrat, not “because father was” but because he believes the principles of the great party are for the betterment of the majority of the people.     He is the son of James and Henrietta Prewitt, who reared twelve children. Those living are Allen, Clifton and Mrs. N. B. Young. He has a half-brother in Clark county W. F. Prewitt.   This is Mr. Prewitt’s first experience in politics. He was educated in the common schools of this county. He married Miss Annie Kennie, of Bourbon, and they have seven children, Clifton Jr., Eugene, Wilmott, Henry, Mrs. Dawson Thurston Minneapolis, Minn., Mrs. Edward Prewitt and Anna Caswell. Mr. Prewitt lives on the farm where he was born. He is a member of Bethlehem Christian Church, Clark county, where for years he has served as elder. Mr. Prewitt is one of Montgomery’s best citizens; one who will be a credit to his constituency, ever laboring to enact or repeal laws for the best interests of the people.

The Winchester Democrat, Friday, June 28, 1901.

 

Death of Senator Prewitt

Senator Caswell Prewitt died at an early hour Saturday morning at the Good Samaritan Hospital, Lexington. Nine days previously he was operated upon for gall stones. His clean life and strong constitution, was in his favor, but his age, sixty-six years, was against him and he failed to recover. He was a native of Montgomery county, a son of James Prewitt, whose descendants for several years have held annual reunions. He is survived by his wife formerly Miss Anna Kenny, of Bourbon county; also by three sons and four daughters. For four years he was State Senator for the district composed of Bourbon, Clark and Montgomery counties, and was succeeded by Senator Ecton, of this county. He was a prominent church man and for years had been an Elder in Bethlehem Christian church. He leaves a large circle of relatives , many of them live in this county. The remains were buried at Mt. Sterling Sunday afternoon.

Prewitt, Caswell Jr. Reported Drowned

The rumor has been current for some time that Cas Prewitt, son of Cliff Prewitt, one of the wealthiest farmers of Montgomery county, who with Chas. Taylor of this county, started for the Klondyke mining region; was drowned in the Yukon river together with three of his companions. Young Prewitt joined Mr. Taylor at Seattle, and they left that city via the Skaguay route. The last heard of them at home was   a letter dated Oct. 4th at Fort Bennett.

Kentucky Boys Safe

The many friends of Caswell Prewitt, Jr. who some months ago started for the Klondike region, will be glad to learn that he has again been heard from. Mr. R. P. Taylor, of Clark county, received a few days ago a letter from his brother, Chas. Taylor, who accompanied Mr. Prewitt. The letter was dated December 1, 1897, and was addressed from their camp on Stewart river, which river, we find by looking on the map, is in the heart of the Klondike region. The letter was brief, merely stating that they were all well.—Mt. Sterling Sentinel-Democrat

Mr. Prewitt had for years been afflicted with asthma, and had gone to southern California, where he seemingly found much relief. He was only 25 years of age and unmarried. The blow falls with stunning force on his sister, as she was not looking for such unfavorable termination to his trouble. In consequence of the washouts in the West, communication is difficult, and as yet, the friends here are not fully advised as to what the funeral arrangements will be..—Mt. Sterling Advocate.

Mr. Prewitt was a son of the late Richard Prewitt, of Pine Grove. He has one brother, David, who is a student at the Kentucky University. His sister Katherine, lately married John G. Winn, of Mt. Sterling, and another, Julia is unmarried.

No debts save a doctor’s bill and funeral expenses. He had already given his nine children $15,000 each, and they will now get about $1,000, each, additional. The widow gets 300 acres of land and the home residence and what stock she wants on the place. Mr. Prewitt, at the time of making a division of his property among his children, was the wealthiest man in the county, and he took the right view to help his children while young and starting in life.

Prewitt, John W. DEATH OF JOHN PREWITT

One of the most distressing accidents that has befallen our people for a long time was the one that resulted in the death of John W. Prewitt, one of Clark county’s most prominent citizens, at the Growers Tobacco Warehouse in Louisville last Tuesday. This was the day for inauguration of sales at the new warehouse, and in consequence, a large crowd was present. The elevator shaft of the building is surrounded by a low railing near which Mr. Prewitt was standing. The surging crowd pressed him upon the railing which gave way with him, precipitating him through the shaft. In falling the base of his skull struck the timbers, crushing his skull and inflicting injuries from which he died in a short time without recovering consciousness. He was removed to the home of his brother-in-law, George R. Snyder, from whence the remains were brought to this city for interment. His funeral was preached at the Christian church by Rev. J. J. Chisholm and J. S. Kendrick, to one of the largest audiences ever assembled in this city for a similar purpose. Mr. Prewitt was a native of Montgomery county but had lived here many years. He was one of our most successful farmers, and when the Shorthorn was king he owned a number. Many of his herd have been victors in the fair ring over some of the best in the land. When the tobacco growers revolted under the threatened consolidation of the tobacco warehouses, he was one of the most prominent leaders of the movement that culminated in the establishment of the Growers Warehouse. He had lately removed to Louisville to assist in the establishment of this warehouse.

He leaves a wife, nee Miss Goff, and three children Ben and Nelson, of this county and Mrs. Henry Nelson of Lexington.

A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Kentucky Tobacco Growers Association, was held Tuesday night, and the following preamble and resolution adopted:

“Whereas, in the inscrutable providence of God, a sad accident has caused the death of our colleague, J. W. Prewitt: therefore,

“Resolved: that in his death the Kentucky Growers Association has lost a valuable and efficient officer, the farmers an honest and faithful friend, the State a patriotic citizen, and the family an affectionate and indulgent father.

2nd.   That the deceased combined every virtue going to make up the perfect gentleman. Modest and unassuming in deportment, kind, affectionate to his family and friends, courteous and   generous to all who knew him.

3rd.   That we tender to his family, on whom the blow falls with severest force, our sincere sympathy.

4th.   That the Secretary is instructed to spread these resolutions on the records of the Association and that a copy be furnished to the family of the deceased, and also to the C. J., the Farmers’ Home Journal and the Clark county papers.

Mrs. Margaret Prewitt has brought suit for $ 25,000 damages against the Union Tobacco Warehouse and the Tobacco Growers’ Association for the loss of her husband John W. Prewitt, who fell through the elevator, into the cellar by the breaking of the railing against which he was leaning.

The Democrat,   Wednesday, November 25, 1891.

 

THE farm of the late John W. Prewitt, two and one-half miles from the city on the Paris pike was sold publicly Tuesday and was bought by O. and Calloway Crawford, late of Breathitt county, at $ 80 per acre. The farm contains 700 acres.

The Democrat,   Wednesday, September 28, 1892.

 

SQUIRE W. N. WEST has brought suit against the heirs of John W. Prewitt for $ 840 which he claims as commission for bringing about the sale of the Prewitt farm.

The Democrat, Wednesday, February 22, 1893.

 

In January, 1891, John W. Prewitt, of this county attended the opening sale of the new Tobacco Growers Association, of which he was an officer. Much interest was manifested in the success of the new warehouse, as it was the outgrowth of a fight against what the growers thought extortionate charges of the warehousemen, and the building was crowded. By some means Mr. Prewitt fell down the elevator shaft and sustained injuries from which he died in a short time. His wife, Mrs. Margaret A. Prewitt, brought suit for $25,000 against the Company, alleging criminal negligence in failing to have a proper railing around the shaft. The case was tried in the Louisville Circuit Court this week and after a trial lasting several days, a verdict was rendered awarding Mrs. Prewitt $6,312.50.

The Winchester Democrat,   Wednesday, May 3, 1893

 

Some time ago, Mrs. Mary Prewitt secured a verdict of $7,500 damages for the death of her husband John W. Prewitt, who was killed in the Union Tobacco Warehouse at Louisville, Monday a new trial of the case was ordered by Circuit Judge Field.

The Winchester Democrat,   Wednesday, November 29, 1893

 

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 case of Mrs. M. A. Prewitt, of this county, against the Growers’ Warehouse company of Louisville, for damages for the death of her husband, came up in the Louisville Circuit Court this week and was postponed until June.

Chas. B. Stewart, Capt. B. A. Tracy and J. Scott Renick are in Louisville this week as witnesses in the suit of Mrs. John W. Prewitt against the Tobacco Warehouse Co.., for damages for the death of her husband, which come up to-day. She sued for twenty-five thousand dollars and received a verdict of sixty-three hundred dollars. A new trial was granted at the instance of the Company, but Mrs. Prewitt has secured much new and valuable evidence and will present a much stronger case than at the previous trial.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday June 19, 1894

 

The case of Mrs. Mary Prewitt for the damages for the death of her husband, the late John W. Prewitt, was called in the Louisville Circuit Court last week and passed on account of the serious illness of Henry Nelson’s child.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday June 22, 1894

 

The suit of Mrs. Mary Prewitt, for damages for the loss of her husband, came up again this week in the Louisville Circuit Court and was postponed until this morning, when it is thought it will be tried.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday June 26, 1894

 

In the Louisville Common Pleas Court Wednesday, Mrs. J. W. Prewitt was awarded $4,500 as damages against the Union Tobacco Warehouse Co., for the death of her husband. She sued for $25,000, and at a previous trial was given $6,120.50. The company secured a new trial.

The Winchester Democrat,   Friday, June 29, 1894

 

New Trial Granted.

AT Louisville Tuesday Judge Fieldagain granted the defendants a new trial in the case of Prewitt’s executors against the Union Warehouse Company. This is the case for damages growing out of the death of John W. Prewitt, of this county who was killed by falling down an elevator shaft at the warehouse above mentioned. His fall was occasioned by the railing giving way, and his executors brought suit for $ 25,000 damages. It has been tried twice. The first time the jury awarded $ 6,312. A new trial was granted the Company and the second verdict was $ 4,500.   Still they were not satisfied and a new trial has again been granted them.

The Winchester Democrat,   Friday, April 12, 1895.

 

An increased amount

In January 1891, John W. Prewitt, one of the most influential men in the county attended the opening sale of the Union Tobacco Warehouse Company, of Louisville. A large crowd was in attendance, and a speech from Gen. John S. Williams was a feature of the occasion. Mr. Prewitt was leaning against a temporary railing erected in front of the elevator shaft. The crowd pressing upon the railing caused it to give way and Mr. Prewitt was precipitated to the floor below, sustaining injuries which caused his death in a short time. Mrs. Prewitt brought suit for $25,000 damages. When it came to trial the jury awarded her $6,312.50. The Warehouse Company secured a new trial and this time Mrs. Prewitt received a verdict for $4,500. An error in the instructions led Judge Field to grant a new trial. Mrs. Prewitt’s lawyers have asserted that each trial enabled them to present a stronger case and it seems they were right, for Tuesday the jury brought in a verdict of $12,000. When the suit was first brought the Kentucky Tobacco Growers Association was made a party to the suit but the suit against the Association was afterward dismissed.

The Winchester Democrat,   Friday, January 17, 1896

 

IN the Court of Appeals this week was argued the case of the Union Warehouse Co., vs. John W. Prewitt’s Administrator. John W. Prewitt, of this county, was killed some years ago by falling down an elevator shaft in the Union Warehouse and his executor was awarded damages by the Court. The Warehouse Company appealed and the case seems nearing solution.

The Winchester Democrat,   Friday, October 11, 1898.

 

Judgment Affirmed

Several years ago John W. Prewitt, one of the most prominent farmers of this county was killed by falling through an elevator shaft of a tobacco warehouse at Louisville.   His heirs brought suit for damages and the case has been tried three times, the jury giving heavy damages each time. The last verdict of the lower court for $12,000 damages was affirmed by the Court of Appeals Wednesday.

The Winchester Democrat,   Fri., May 5, 1899

 

The Prewitt Case.

In affirming the damages case of J. W. Prewitt’s administratrix against the Union tobacco Warehouse, the Court of appeals says:

First—A verdict of $13,000 for the death of plaintiff’s interests is not exceeded.

Second—Tobacco warehouse company sued for causing the death of plaintiff’s intestate by its failure to place sufficient guards around an elevator hole cannot escape liability on the ground that plaintiff’s intestate under a contract between defendant and as association of which he was chief officer and agent had not right on use that part of the warehouse where the elevator was, as it appears the defendant, with knowledge of the danger, anticipated such use by plaintiff’s intestate and others associated with him.

Third—in an action for causing the death of another by willful neglect a plea of contributory negligence is not available.

The Winchester Democrat,   Tuesday, May 16, 1899

 

Squire West Won

Several years ago Squire W. N. West sued the estate of the late John Prewitt for about $800 as Commission for selling a farm to Calloway Crawford. Judge Scott gave peremptory instructions for the defense and the estate won. The case was taken to the Court of Appeals where it was reversed and sent back.   At the second trial West got a verdict for $840. It was again taken to the higher court where it was affirmed with damages Saturday.   The entire amount which West will get amounts to about $1,000.

Dr. Nelson V. Prewitt died at St. Joseph’s Hospital, Lexington, Tuesday morning from the results of an operation for appendicitis, aged thirty-two years.

Dr. Prewitt was taken to the hospital about two weeks ago, but on account of his weakened condition, the operation was not preformed until Sunday, when other complications were found and a second operation was found necessary. This failed to afford relief and the patient sank rapidly to the end.

He was the son of the late John W. Prewitt who was accidentally killed some years ago by falling down the elevator shaft of a Louisville tobacco warehouse.

The remains of Dr. Prewitt were brought to his mother’s residence on South Main Street, this city, where the funeral was preached Wednesday by Rev. Wm. Cumming and the remains were buried in the Winchester cemetery.

He leaves a wife, formerly Miss Florence Downton, of Danville and one child. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church and was a Christian gentleman in every sense.

He was a member of Winchester Lodge of Elks and Daniel Boone Council Royal Arcanum, a member of the Clark County Medical Society and of the Kentucky Valley Medical Association, and also surgeon of the Fire Department.

Besides his mother he leaves one brother, Ben G. Prewitt, of this county, and a sister, Mrs. Henry Nelson of Oklahoma.

The large crowd that filled the house and thronged the yard at the funeral, comprising quite a number from other places, attested the great respect in which he was held and the universal regret at his death.

Resolutions of Respect

The following resolutions were adopted by Winchester Lodge No. 539 B.P.O.E on the death of Brother N. V. Prewitt:

Whereas, The death angel has again invaded our ranks and called to eternal rest our esteemed brother Nelson V. Prewitt, who has been Chaplain of the Lodge since its organization, and while we bow in humble submission to the omniscient will of the Grand Exalted Ruler of the Universe be it,

Resolved, That in the death of Brother Prewitt this Lodge has lost one of its most valued, faithful and well beloved officers and members, one who was a Christian gentleman in all the relations of life, whose character and walk were above reproach, and whose exemplifications of the great principles of our order, Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity, was such as to be well worthy of the emulation of all his brethren and will mark one of the brightest pages of our Lodge.

Resolved, That our tenderest sympathies be extended to his bereaved family and that a copy of these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the Lodge, and a copy under the seal of the Lodge be given to the family of Brother Prewitt.

Prompt Payment

A draft for three thousand dollars was this week received by Daniel Boone Council, No. 1070, Royal Arcanum, of this city. It was the payment of the amount of life insurance held by the late Dr. Nelson Vanmeter Prewitt and was payable to his mother, Mrs. Margaret A. Prewitt. The proofs of his death were mailed by the local council on September 8th and the draft for payment was mailed September 15th, a remarkably prompt response.

Sorrow and Pleasure.

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

The many friends of Ollie W. Price will be pained to hear of his tragic death. The following particulars we gather from the Lexington Press: Its seems that difficulty has existed for some time between him and his wife’s step father Len Anderson, near Poplar Plains, in Fleming county.   Mr. Price was farming near the residence of Anderson, and had to pass that way as he was driving a load of hay to town. When passed Anderson’s place the old man came out to the road and commenced throwing stones at Price. At this   Price jumped from his wagon, drew a pistol, commenced firing, and continued to do so until Anderson had retreated nearly to the house. Thomas Anderson, the son of the retreating man, saw what was going on, got his shotgun, and as Price came near the house, fired both barrels and blew his brains out. This took place at 1 o’clock on Friday, and he died four hours later. The distressing intelligence reached his mother Friday night, and to add to her misfortune, she missed the morning train yesterday by about three minutes, and was consequently detained at home.   Mr. D. W. Price, the oldest brother, is now in Leadville, Colo. and the second brother, at Chicago. The afflicted mother and family have the sympathy of the entire community. Mr. Price was born and raised in Clark, and had moved from Lexington to Poplar Plains last spring. He leaves a young wife and one child. His remains were buried at Millersburg.

The Anderson’s were tried at Poplar Plains, Fleming County, last week, for the murder of O. W. Price, and were held over. Old man Anderson’s bail was put at $4,000 and, Tom Anderson’s at $5,000. The Price burying ground is in the Winchester cemetery, but Oliver was interred in the lot of his wife’s family, in Fleming county, in accordance with the wishes of the widow.

THE MURDER OF OLLIE PRICE

The examining trial of the Anderson’s for killing Ollie W. Price took place at Poplar Plains last week before two magistrates. Our special reporter for the Democrat gives us below all that can be learned about the unfortunate affair;

The facts of the murder of Ollie Price have been garbled and grossly miss-stated in the public print.   The facts as they were brought out before the examining court are as follows:

The witnesses were firm, clear and truthful and are men of excellent character. They swore that Price was riding by the elder Anderson’s house on a load of hay, when Anderson, Sr. called out to him, “Why do you gaze at me?” Price gave no reply Anderson then said, “If you want anything come down from there and we will settle it.”   Price then spoke saying, “ You are a damned thief.” Anderson then picked up a rock and threw it at the head of Price. Price avoided the lick on the head by a dodge. Price drew his pistol and threw it down to fire but it did not go off, but he cocked it again and fired at Anderson.   Anderson by this time had turned and was running from Price. Price then put up his pistol and drove his wagon along (he still on top of the hay) for about 20 yards. The son, who killed Price, came out of a store when Price had driven 20 yards from the spot where he fired, and raising his shot gun, loaded with buck shot, fired at Price. Price dodging his head in the hay, the shot missed him Anderson first fired while running toward Price. The second time he stopped still, took deliberate aim and killed him. Price’s horses were trotting when the first shot was fired, and continued to move while Anderson ran after him. So the killing occurred about 50 yards from the spot where he first fired at Anderson, Sr. When old man Anderson went up to the store where his son was with his double barreled shot gun, which he had evidently loaded with buck shot for the purpose of killing Price, young Anderson asked his father if he was hurt. The witness did not hear his reply, but Anderson at once started toward Price.   Young Anderson, it is said, will be proven to have said that Price could not live there. This is, in short, the testimony substantially with reference to another of the long list of brutal murders that disgrace the record of Kentucky crimes. The parties charged with this murder were bailed by the presiding magistrates, both of whom enjoyed the senior Anderson’s hospitality while they sat on his, and his son’s cases. The bail of Anderson, Sr., was fixed at $4,000 and that of the murderer at $5,000.   The character of the Anderson’s makes people afraid of them, and the law is lax in its administration. The body of Price lay four hours after he was shot, nobody in that vicinity having the courage or kindness of heart to go to see him. I suppose four of the Anderson’s cut a figure in this disgraceful fact. The Anderson’s are defended by Judge L. W. Andrews, Judge E. C. Phister and Judge J. M. Alexander. County Attorney Givens, W. J. Hendricks, of Fleming, and J. Doule Smith, of Lexington, represented the prosecution at the examining trial.

Another account

Tilton, Ky., August 16, 1879

Editors Clark County Democrat: Your account of the killing of O.W. Price, as copied from the Lexington Press, being somewhat inaccurate, and presuming that those of your readers who knew Mr. Price would be interested in knowing under just what circumstances he lost his life, I send you the facts as developed at the examining trial of Peter H. Anderson and his son Thomas, who are charged with the deed. The trial took place at Poplar Plains on last Tuesday and Wednesday, before Squires Hurst and Carpenter, who are the magistrates in that precinct. The Commonwealth was represented by T.L. Given, county attorney, assisted by W.J. Hendricks, of Flemingsburg, and J. Soule Smith, of Lexington; the defendants by Judges L.W. Andrews and J.M. Alexander, of Flemingsburg, and Hon. E.C. Phister, of Maysville. The case never had a parallel in this county, and our people are manifesting much interest and not a little excitement. A large crowd was present at the trial. The principal witness, those who saw the difficulty, were Dr. R.H. Yantis, and John D. Logan. These gentlemen testified that on last Friday evening, as Price was driving a spring wagon, loaded with hay, through the town of Poplar Plains, and when near the residence of Peter H. Anderson, who is a merchant and lives but a short distance from his store, Anderson, who was standing on the steps leading into the store, accosted him with “What are you gazing at me for?” If you want anything come down here, repeating the latter instance several times. Price responded by calling him “d ______d old thief.” Anderson then threw a rock at Price, but missed him, where upon Price drew his pistol and fired at Anderson, though without effect. Thomas Anderson, who was in the store waiting upon a customer, hearing the pistol shot went to the door, and seeing his father and Price engaged in a difficulty, hastened back to where a shotgun was standing behind a door. Seizing this he ran to the street and instantly fired at Price, who was still upon his load of hay and driving off. The first shot missing its aim the other barrel was fired, a single buck shot striking Price about an inch above and behind the left ear. The wounded man fell from the wagon and was carried into the store room of Joseph Throop. From there he was carried to his home, which was but a few rods distant. He lived but two or three hours after being wounded, and during the time appeared wholly unconscious. Peter Anderson was admitted to bail in the sum of $4,000, E.A. Robertson, of Tilton, going on his bond. Tom gave a $5,000 bond for his appearance at the October term of our criminal court, and was released. Peter H. is his bondsman. I make no comment. Yours, Truly, M

Baskett’s Station, Ky., Oct. 9.-At Zion’s church, Rev. John Prince was shot and killed by Hale Walton, who made his escape. Both are colored. Walton had warned Prince against keeping company with his daughter, and Tuesday night went to the church where the preacher was holding revival services. He carried a double barreled shot gun, and placing it through the crack in the front door, shot Prince as he stood in the pulpit preaching. Prince’s head was almost blown off. There was a panic in the church, and women and children were trampled under the feet of the men. A search was made for Walton, but he has not yet been found. Prince exerted a powerful influence over the colored people, and they refused to go to the church Wednesday night.

John R. Proctor, president of the Civil Service Commission, died suddenly in Washington City on Saturday last. Kentucky lost Mr. Proctor and the Geological Survey, with which he was connected, because he was too independent and honest to be used by the Politicians. They wanted him to make his bureau a part of the democratic machine just as the other institutions of the State have since been made, but he refused, and the legislature of 1902 abolished the Survey by refusing to make an appropriation for its continuance. Theodore Roosevelt, while in Kentucky gathering material for his book, “The Winning of the West,” was so favorably impressed with Mr. Proctor that he induced President Cleveland to appoint him on the Civil Service Commission. The State lost Mr. Proctor’s services in the best work that has been attempted since its organization; but the Government was the gainer. A man of independence, ability and honesty stands a very poor show when he runs up against the democratic machine in Kentucky.

Proctor, L. J. It is seldom that a household is called upon to mourn the loss of two immediate ancestors at the same time. Yet that is the case with the family of Dr. D. L. Proctor, of Mt. Sterling. Dr. Proctor’s father died Tuesday at Proctor’s Cave, Edmonson county and two days later. Mrs. Proctor’s mother died in this county. A more extended notice of her death will be found in another place. Hon. L. J. Proctor was quite a noted man in his day and was the youngest member of the convention which framed the State constitution of 1850. As he was 76 years old when he died.

The young men are Virgil Ballantyne, the 18 year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Thos. A. Ballantyne, of 639 Monmouth street, and Harry Prues aged 19, a son of Mrs. Mary Prues, who lives at 845 Monroe street.

The peculiar feature of the death of young Ballantyne is that his mother when informed of the death of her son told of a dream which she had had after reading of the wreck in which she saw her son among the dead. Young Ballantyne had gained some notice as a jockey, having had a number of mounts on local and foreign tracks. He had not been riding lately, and both he and young Prues were on their way from Middletown to Hamilton in search of work when they were killed.

Pruitt, Mrs. Marshall Mrs. Marshall Pruitt

Passes away at an early hour Sunday morning after a short illness

Many hearts were saddened Sunday by the announcement that as dawn ushered in the Sabbath morn, the spirit of Mrs. Marshall Pruitt had passed from time to eternity. For the past ten days she had been lingering on the brink of the grave, and while from the beginning of her illness, much alarm was felt, yet at times here friends were buoyed by the hope she would be victorious in the battle she so bravely fought, but it was an unequal struggle and Death became the victor. The death of one so young, only seventeen, and just when life seemed brightest, having been a bride only three months, is particularly sad, and the sympathy of the community is extended to the young husband and sorrowing relatives. She was a daughter of Mr. Philip Lisle, of the county, by whom she is survived, also by two sisters, Mrs. Sam Locknane, Jr., and Miss Myrtis Lisle, and two brothers, Leon and Harry Philip Lisle. The funeral was held at the Church of Christ on Fairfax street, yesterday afternoon at three o’clock with services by Eld. J.W. Harding and the interment was in the Winchester cemetery. The pall bearers were: Benjamin Lisle, James Lisle, Harvey Lisle, Wallace Strode, Grant Robinson and Daniel Dykes.

Quarreled over crop

Lexington, Ky. – As the result of a quarrel over the condition of a small crop of tobacco, Roger Hanson Pryor, aged 47, game chicken fancier, is dead and Jason W. Bentley, aged 66, farmer and miller, is probably fatally wounded. Bentley told Pryor he was harsh in his criticism of his son, Frank, and Pryor called the old man a liar. Bentley got a single barreled shot gun. Stepping about 30 feet from Bentley, Pryor raised his gun and fired. The load of birdshot struck Bentley in the abdomen. Pryor immediately fired the second barrel, and this stuck Bentley in the left hip. Simultaneously with Pryor’s second shot Bentley fired. The charged went solidly into Pryor’s abdomen and he fell forward upon his gun, expiring immediately. The verdict of Coroner Kiser’s jury was that Bentley had killed Pryor in self defense. Pryor was widely known in the realm of American cock fighters. He was chiefly distinguished for his ability in pitting.

Puckett, Banister The subject of this sketch was a native of Estill county.   He was a giant in strength and prided himself on his ability to whip any number of men that could get to him in a rough and tumble fight. The late Judge Robert Fluty who knew him well, told me of a number of incidents connected with Puckett’s fighting career. About fifty years ago, at Elkins Mill (Vienna), in this county Puckett was engaged in one of the most terrific battles of his life. About the year 1855 he located in the southern part of Anderson county where he married a Miss Kaze. I was a small boy then and Mr. Puckett appeared to like me.   At least, he petted me and in my childish fancy I looked upon him as a great hero. At almost every public gathering there would be a fist and skull fight with Puckett as the star performer. On one of these occasions he severely whipped a young man by the name of James Searcy. Some months afterward there was a sale on Beaver creek. Puckett was there as was Searcy. Searcy was a small man but had attained some reputation as a fighter, and was engaged at Dog Walk in a fight with the Millers, of Washington county, in which wounded. His life was despaired of for a time. Puckett walked to the spring about one hundred yards from where the sale was being held, and after getting a drink of water started to return when Searcy deliberately raised his squirrel rifle and shot him. The ball entered the lower part of the chest and went through the body. Puckett fell and everyone believed he would die in a short time. He was placed on a sled and taken to his home, and after a few months recovered. Later he was at a Logrolling at Frank Baxter’s on Puncheon creek. As usual he got into a fight. This time it was with Mr. Baxter. He had Baxter down and was beating him when Baxter got out his knife and cut Puckett severely in a number of places. Puckett went to his home bleeding profusely. That night a shot was fired through the window of Baxter’s house and Tobe Strange was hit in the shoulder. The parties rushed out but could find no one. It developed that the shot was fired by Puckett who mistook Strange for Baxter. He had gone home and gotten his rifle and walked two miles to Baxter’s house, fired the shot and returned to his home, the wounds made by Baxter’s knife bleeding all the time. Reaching home Puckett laid down on a trundle bed and died before daylight-bled to death. The war came on and Searcy became an outlaw, defying both the civil and military authorities. Near the close of the war he disappeared, no one knowing whether he was killed or left the country. Strange finally died from the wound inflicted by Puckett.
