Uhl takes fourth at state finals
INDIANAPOLIS - If the strides Andy Uhl made from his freshman year to his sophomore year are any predictor of future success, the East Noble sophomore should be a force in Indianapolis for years to come.
Uhl won his first two matches at the state meet Friday and Saturday before dropping two in a row and taking fourth place at 112 pounds.
While fourth place is a remarkable achievement in itself, East Noble coach Cam Lahee said the more subtle improvements Uhl made over last year's trip to state were most impressive.
"The difference was in his mental attitude - not getting frustrated when things got tough," Lahee said. "He did a better job of concentrating on the task at hand. When he gave up the escape that sent him into overtime, he stayed on the mat and got compose and then decided to to go out and take him down."
That first test of Uhl's mental attitude came in the first match on Friday night when Uhl faced Mark Richardson of Perry Meridian. A late escape by Richardson forced a 7-7 tie and sudden-death overtime. Uhl responded.
"He just decided,'Hey, I've taken this guy down before. I'll just do it again,'" Lahee said.
That 9-7 win put Uhl in the quarterfinals vs. Hobart's Manuel Rodriguez. Rodriguez had gotten through the first round in just 1:49 by pinning Nick Adams of Milan.
Uhl was again up to the task, pulling out another close match, 5-3.
"Andy had some pretty close matches going all the way back to the sectional final. He had all those matches against (Josh) DeGood and some others," Lahee said. "So he had some experience that helped him. Some of those guys get down to state and the first close match they've had all year is down there."
Uhl's run was shaken in the semifinals, when a 10-3 loss to Jeff Gray of Lawrence North put him in the consolation round against Mishawaka's Yancy Gradeless.
In the consolation round, the first period of each match was just one minute long, making Gradeless' opening takedown that much more pronounced, according to Lahee.
From there, it was a battle against the Gradeless stall. Even so, Uhl put Gradeless to his back near the buzzer long enough for the referee to begin counting, but time ran out before nearfall points could register.
"If we would have had three more seconds he would have won," Lahee said.
After all was said and done, Lahee said he and Uhl had a chance to sit back and assess the first half of the 112-pounder's career.
"We're pretty happy with things. Of course, everyone goes down to state wanting to come back a champion, but it was a good run," Lahee said. "He's the best sophomore in the state of Indiana. We had a chance to look back at how Andy crossed some milestones this season, but we'll be looking to improve next year."

Can't-miss kid wins a car
By DAVE KURTZ

WATERLOO - Despite a late choir concert Monday night, Rex Gradeless rolled out of bed and made it to school Tuesday - just like the previous 176 school days in a row.
The effort paid off. By lunchtime,Gradeless was sitting behind the wheel of a sporty car he won for his flawless attendance record.
DeKalb High School conducted a drawing for the car, but only its 89 students with perfect attendance were eligible to win.
Bart Churchward, owner of Bart's Car Store in Auburn, pulledGradeless' name out of a fishbowl while the whole student body watched in the school gymnasium.
The timing couldn't have been better for Gradeless, a 16-year-old sophomore. He's due to get his driver's license in just a few days.
"The only way I was going to get a car was if I bought one, so I wasn't going to get one - so this is really nice. This is good," he said as the shock started wearing off.
Churchward is giving away cars this spring at four schools near his car dealerships - DeKalb, Homestead, Penn and Warsaw high schools.
Churchward told DeKalb's students that he likes to reward perfect attendance because persistence is the most important factor in his own success. He said he's no genius, but hard work has made him the owner of six car lots with a seventh opening soon.
Gradeless got the message. "I came to school a few days not feeling too well, just to try to win the car," he told two television reporters who interviewed him. "It was all worth it in the end."
Just outside the school's north doors,Gradeless turned the key in his 1992 Chevrolet Beretta GT - blue with a sunroof and bucket seats
"We just waited for a really nice trade-in that's got the look you want in high school," Churchward said of his selection of the Beretta.
In a white shirt and tie,Gradeless had the look you want in front of the TV cameras.
"I was telling my friends, 'I just dressed up to get my car today and be in the paper,'" he said. In fact, Tuesday was "Touch of Class" day at DeKalb.
Gradeless said he generally enjoys good health, thanks to staying in shape for soccer and baseball. He nearly compiled a perfect attendance record last year.
Principal Rod Knox said DeKalb High School's attendance rate improved from 95.04 percent a year ago to 95.64 percent this year.
The 88 reliable students who didn't win a car each received coupons for fast food, car washes and movies.

DeKalb barrage too much for Heritage
By DAVE KURTZ
WATERLOO - DeKalb launched a constant barrage of shots on goal in a 4-1 win over Heritage in boys soccer Tuesday night.
The Barons fired 22 shots at the Patriots' goalkeeper, while DeKalb's goalie needed to make only two saves.
A DeKalb shot found the net for the first time with 19:13 left in the first half. Brandon Koenig launched a crossing pass around the Heritage goalie and Cory Miller swooped in to tap it home from short range.
Ten minutes later, the Barons took a 2-0 lead.  Rex Gradeless sent a pass to Andrew Bigelow, who beat his man down the left side to score on a hard shot from about 5 yards out.
Heritage closed the gap at the 5:12 mark when Chris Pray converted a penalty kick.
But DeKalb answered quickly at 3:31 on the second goal by Bigelow. Adam Drew fed him the ball this time and Bigelow rifled a shot from the left side into the far right corner of the net.
Early going in the second half saw several near-misses by the Barons. Tim Mercer put a header into the top rail for his second close call of the night. Matt Knapp's shot from 20 yards out sailed just over the bar.
Then with 23:38 to play, Bigelow sent another cannonball at the goalie and when it deflected off his hands, Brandon Koenig pounced to put the rebound in the net.
³All of those kids were crashing the goal,² said Baron coach Jed Freels. ³We crossed the ball well tonight. We used both corners. So instead of being a one-corner team tonight, we used the full half of the field.²
DeKalb had steered its offense chiefly to one side in a loss to Concordia Thursday, Freels said. The win over Heritage improved the Barons' season record to 2-1.
³We stuck to our game plan this time,² Freels said. ³They had a couple of guys that were very powerful up front, but we marked them well and we cleared the ball well instead of letting those guys run.²
Freels took as much pride in the Patriots' low shot total for Heritage as in the Barons' potent offense.
Against DeKalb's defense, he said, ³A guy's really going to have to dribble hard to get a clean shot off. ... A lot of that's the result of those guys always pressuring the ball. ... Time after time the two fullbacks pushed the ball back up the sidelines. That really, really worked.²
He added, ³When our four defenders go home knowing they've shut down a couple of good forwards ... that's a great win for those guys, even though they're not the ones down here kicking it in.²
DeKalb opens the Northeast Hoosier Conference schedule Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at New Haven. The next Baron home match will be next Tuesday, Aug. 29, against archrival East Noble, with the junior varsity match beginning at 5 p.m.

DeKalb outlasts Garrett
By DAVE KURTZ
GARRETT - Two early goals gave DeKalb the lead. Two late scores sealed a 4-1 win over Garrett in boys soccer Thursday.
In between, the rivals played 65 minutes of tightly contested soccer, leaving both coaches encouraged.
"I think this is the first legitimate time that we've competed with DeKalb. I think it was truly a well played game. I don't think we've ever had that," said Garrett coach Doug Klopfenstein.
"I think Garrett is probably the best team we've played so far," said DeKalb coach Jed Freels. He praised his team's defensive effort against an offensive-minded Garrett formation.
"With four forwards on them tonight, they still only let one goal in that shouldn't have gone in," Freels said. "They're playing superb defense. If they continue to do that, we're going to play tough right down through the stretch."
DeKalb's Brandon Koenig shocked the Railroaders with a pair of goals just 67 seconds apart. The first came only 4:12 after the kickoff.
³Their defense was playing up to support their forwards, and we went around them and we scored. They were beautiful goals,² Freels said. ³He did a good job of putting the ball through traffic.²
Koenig's first score came from the right side on a 20-yard blast that deflected off the goalie. For his second, he took a pass from Brian Bigelow, cut between defenders and connected from about 15 yards in front.
Garrett got back in the game at the 26:07 mark. Carlos Covarrubias worked free along the end line to fire a shot that glanced off the Barons' goalkeeper and rolled over the goal line. Sam Sudhoff assisted.
The teams then snugged up their defenses for a long stretch of scoreless play. The Barons couldn't breathe easy until Cory Miller sailed a 20-yard shot from the left side - over the goalie's head into the back corner of the net - for a 3-1 lead with only 8:06 to play. Rex Gradeless made a determined drive down the sideline to get the ball to Miller.
DeKalb padded the final margin when Koenig scored his third goal of the night - a 10-yard shot with 1:43 remaining.
"I feel really bad for our kids. They played really well, and in the paper tomorrow it's going to look like we got beat easily - and I don't think that was the case," Klopfenstein said. His team's record dropped to 3-4.
Garrett got some breaks in a win over Angola Tuesday, he said, but, "Tonight I think we were unlucky. They were crossing the ball and it went in the goal, and a couple fast breaks and we end up losing the game."
DeKalb took 23 shots on goal to Garrett's 12 and held a 9-4 edge in corner kicks.
The Barons won their sixth straight game for a 7-1 record at the midway point of the season, exactly the same as a year ago.
DeKalb takes its winning streak on the road Monday against Homestead, the state's top-ranked team.
"We've shut down some of the best forwards in the area already," Freels said. "We also think our offense is good enough to score on them, so we think we're going to have a game."
DeKalb's junior varsity won 3-0 over Garrett Thursday, with Austin Miller scoring all three goals. Alex Oberholtzer and Kody Holt had assists. The Baron reserves improved their record to 4-2.

DeKalb choir wins again at Bluffton fair
BLUFFTON - DeKalb High School's show choir continued its dominance of the Bluffton Free Street Fair choral contest Thursday night.
Classic Connection repeated as champions for the fifth straight year, with Homestead as runner-up and Fort Wayne Northrop taking third place.
In its first competition of the season, DeKalb shook the Bluffton stage with a high-energy show.
DeKalb opened with a Disney tune, ³Eye to Eye,² featuring a solo by Alex Oberholzer and a trio of Taya Bartrom, April Hamilton and Abbie Mast.
The choir put on a tap-dancing exhibition to ³I Want to Be a Rug-cutter.² Mike Keesler soloed and a boys' trio of Jamie Peters, Cory Miller and Rex Gradeless accented the song.
The show slowed its pace with a ballad from the musical ³Aida.² Justin Sassanella and Arielle Miller sang a duet during ³Written in the Stars.²
A medley built around the Poynter Sisters' ³Jump² finished the show.
Classic Connection will perform for a home audience Tuesday night, during the swing choir contest at the DeKalb County Free Fall Fair.
Nine choirs will sing on the fair's main stage at Union and Tenth streets, starting at 7:30 p.m.
Homestead, Heritage, Columbia City and Northrop will compete for trophies.
Five local groups will sing in exhibition - choirs from Eastside High School, Garrett High School and DeKalb Middle School, and DeKalb High School's Classic Connection mixed choir and Sound Sensation girls choir. Admission to Tuesday's event is free of charge.

          Upon the 25th day of November, 1839, the Board of County Commissioners, consisting of Otho W. Gandy, Joseph Parrett and Nathaniel Gradeless, came to what is now the town of Columbia City, and the seat of justice of Whitley County, for the purpose of platting the town. Henry Swihart, County Agent, Richard Collins, Sheriff and Abram Cuppy, Clerk, came with them. Zebulon Burch was also of the party, and acting in the capacity of Commissary. The party stopped at the place where now stands the office of Jacob Ramp, in Block 7, Swihart's Addition to the town of Columbia City. At that time, the snow covered the ground. It was in the primitive days, and long before Prometheus had brought a second time fire from Heaven in the shape of Lucifer matches. It may be observed by the enlightened reader that Lucifer has not been in Heaven for a long time. The only excuse I can offer is that a country historian, like a spring poet, cannot afford to be too choice in the use of his similes and illustrations. Richard Collins, therefore, unlimbered himself from his steed at the farm now known as the Essig farm, southwest of town about four miles, and where R. J. German then lived, and gathering from his hearth a tin pail of coals, bestrode again his foaming steed and carried the coals to the point of destination. This company proceeded to cut down timber and built a fire. Zebulon Burch then stretched a tent, and, amid the almost unbroken solitudes, the founders of this city lay down to rest.



Pages 124-125:

          As has been stated before, the first session of the County Commissioners was held at the house of Joseph Parrett, Jr.; the members of the board were Otho W. Gandy, Nathaniel Gradeless and Joseph Parrett, Jr. Gandy a chosen President of the board, and John Gollins was appointed County Treasurer. At a subsequent meeting, the township was divided into two road districts; all that portion south of Eel River constituted Road District No. 1 Charles Chipman was appointed Supervisor. All that portion of the township north of the river constituted District No. 2, John Parrett, Supervisor. The principal road at that time led from Huntington to Goshen, a distance of about sixty-five miles. The majority of the other roads had been made for the convenience of the people and did not follow any direct line or section, so that the work of the Supervisor was an arduous one. The paths and traces were mere starting points. Soon after, trees were blazed, roads widened, creeks bridged and the low ground either "brushed" or poled. About the year 1840, one passable road led from South Whitley to Columbia City, one to where now stands Liberty Mills, Wabash County, and two running north and south in the east and west parts of the township, in addition to the Huntington & Goshen road.

Information in [ ] was added by me as per my documented research of my MILNER family.)

pages 160 - 161:
Sketch entitled:

"WILLIAM BLUE, who is endowed by nature with such gifts as characterize true manhood in all that the word implies, is descended from an honorable ancestry, and his family tree first took root on American soil in the colonial days of Virginia, to which region his ancestors came from England. His grandfather, PETER BLUE, was one of the pioneers of Fayette County, Ohio, cleared a fine farm of 200 acres from the wilderness and there he and his wife, whose maiden name was SUSAN HAZEL, and who was also born in Virginia, reared a family of eleven children: BENJAMIN, JOHN, ABRAHAM, PETER, JACOB, DAVID, WILLIAM, PHILIP, SUSAN, ALICE and NANCY. PETER BLUE spent his life on his farm in Ohio and died at an advanced age. Three of his sons, JOHN, PETER and JACOB, were in the War of 1812. JACOB BLUE, his son, was brought up on a farm and was married to CHARLOTTE, daughter of DAVID MORTIMER, of Maryland, an early settler of Fayette county, Ohio, and eventually of BENTON TOWNSHIP, ELKHART COUNTY, IND., in which section he died. After his marriage JACOB BLUE resided in Ohio for some years, but in 1833 settled in ELKHART COUNTY, IND., on some land which is yet in possession of his descendants. An old-fashioned family of ten children were born to them also: ALICE, MARY, ABRAHAM, WILLIAM, MARGARET, JACOB, PETER, DAVID (who died young), SUSAN and BENJAMIN. JACOB BLUE's farm was heavily covered with timber but by the exercise of all his energy he succeeded in clearing it from the forest and made a good home for his family. His health gave way, owing to the hard work he had done, and at the age of fifty-two years he was called from life, having been an earnest member of the Methodist Episocopal Church for many years, with which his wife was also connected. To such noble men as MR. BLUE is owing the fine agricultural condition of the country at the present time. WILLIAM, his son, the subject of this sketch, was born on the farm in Fayette county, Ohio, December 27, 1824, but owing to the fact that he came to ELKHART COUNTY, IND., when he was but nine years of age, he received but little schooling. They made the journey to this section by wagon and drove their cattle and hogs, and MR. BLUE can well remember the trip. October 1, 1846, he was married to MISS REBECCA GRAYLESS. who was born in Ross county, Ohio, February 26, 1828, daughter of WILLIAM and REBECCA (WAUGH) GRAYLESS, the former of whom was born in Maryland and settled as a pioneer in Fayette county, Ohio, becoming a resident of Indiana in 1833. He had a good farm of 160 acres in Allen county, on which he lived until his demise at the age of sixty-three years. He was a man of excellent moral character and was an earnest member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was the father of six children who lived to mature years: MARY A., ELIZABETH, MARTHA, CHARLES, REBECCA, MALINDA and CYNTHIA. After his marriage William Blue settled on forty acres of his present farm, then covered with heavy timber, but his energetic efforts soon cleared this land and he continued to add to it until he became the owner of 280 acres, 160 of which he has given to his children, and now has 120 acres of his own. His property has been acquired by his own efforts and with the assistance of his worthy wife, and they now have a comfortable home and are surrounded with all the comforts and many of the luxuries of life. Four of their children lived to be grown: SILAS, born February 12, 1848, married EMILY MILLER, by whom he has four children and is a farmer near Sugar Hill; CHRISTIANA, born April 11, 1852, married HENRY A. SNYDER, a farmer of this township by whom she has one child; LONSON, born March 3, 1859, married LIZZIE WILNER, by whom he has three children, and is a farmer of this township; [CORRECTION: Being related to this couple I know that "Lizzie Wilner" is actually MALISSA/MELISSA ANN MILNER. Born 27 Aug 1862 in Benton Township, ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA as per the MILNER family bible. She died 17 Oct 1945 in Rural Ligonier, Noble, Indiana and was buried 19 Oct 1945 in Hire Cemetery, ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA. Parents were: JOHN HESSAY MILNER born 14 Nov 1803 in Bishop Wilton, Yorkshire, England; died 1 Sep 1876 in Benton Township, ELKHART COUNTY INDIANA; buried in Hire Cemetery, Benton Township, ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA and MARY ELIZABETH McCLELLAN(D) (2nd wife) born 19 Oct 1826 in Wooster, Wayne Co., Ohio; died 12 Jan 1915 in Monte Vista, Rio Grande, Colorado; buried Monte Vista Cemetery, Rio Grande County, Colorado. John Milner and Mary Elizabeth McClellan(d) were married 16 Aug 1856 in Benton Township, ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA. David Lonson Blue (Alonzo Blue on the marriage cert.) and Melissa Ann Milner were married 15 Apr 1880 in ELKHART COUNTY, INDIANA. They are also both buried in Hire Cemetery, ELKHART, INDIANA] and BENJAMIN, born June 7, 1863, is a farmer of this township, is married to MISS MARY HANEY and is the father of one child. All these children are settled in the immediate vicinity of their old home and are honorable, respectable and useful citizens of the community. SILAS has been trustee of BENTON TOWNSHIP two terms. MR. and MRS. BLUE are devout members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and in politics he is a Republican. He is a substantial farmer who has never taken part in politics, but has devoted his attention to clearing his land and properly bringing up his family and the result is greatly to his credit. He has always pursued a correct course through life, and for honest integrity and thrift has set a good example to his children. He is a thoroughly self-reliant man, but at the same time is quiet and unobstrusive and "pursues the even tenor of his way" without interfering with his neighbors' affairs and with no desire for public preferment."

Wild Rose Wisconsin: Industrial Park:

The Village of Wild Rose formally opened their Industrial Park to business on October 23, 1999. The final phase of construction on the road and utilities continues and will be completed by the end of November 1999.

Phase One of the Industrial Park consists of four parcels approximately 2 to 2.3 acres each and is located on Cul-de-sac Road on the south side of Wild Rose, just off State Highway 22.

Smykal Construction is the first business to move into the park. Smykal has already broken ground and begun construction on their new building.

In addition to the four parcels, there is also a 22 acre parcel located to the north that is part of Phase Two. Both locations are part of a Tax Incremental Financing (TIF) District.

Gradeless Construction of Almond, installed the sewer lines and put in the new road, Industrial Court, for the development. Village employees George Perry and Mark Williams are overseeing the project.

Businesses interested in knowing more about the Wild Rose Industrial Park should contact:

DROPPED DEAD
____________________
Mrs. Silas Jackson, of Thorncreek Town-
ship, Found Dead on the Public
Highway

          Thursday morning of last week, Mrs. Silas Jackson, who lives on the line between Thorncreek and Richland townships, about four miles northwest of Columbia City, went to the home of her neighbor, Mrs. Nathan Keirn, to spend the day. She was apparently in good health when she left home and appeared also perfectly well while visiting the Keirn family. She left for her home, three-quarters of a mile distant in the afternoon a little after three o'clock. That was the last seen of her while alive.
          About four o'clock her remains were discovered by Nathan Keirn lying in the road. His testimony was given to Coroner William's gives the particulars as follows:
          "Nathan Keirn, upon oath, declares that he is well acquainted with Mrs. Silas Jackson, deceased, and that upon the 5th day of March, 1891, during the afternoon that said Mrs. Jackson, deceased was visiting at my house which is about three-fourths of a mile form the late residence of said Jackson. While at my home she seemed to be in good health and in as cheerful a disposition as you generally find her. She left my home about half past 3 o'clock p.m. for her home. At about the hour of 4, while I was hauling wood on the main road (James Sheckler was with me at the time), we saw something lying in the middle of the road west of us about 30 rods. I told Sheckler to go and see what it was. He came running back and said it was Mrs. Silas Jackson and that she was dead. My hired girl came to the sport right after me. I left her (Catharine Sheckler) with the body while I went and informed the husband of the deceased, that his wife was dead. I then ame to Columbia City and informed the coroner of the facts as stated. I don't know that she has been sick of late."
          Her daughter, Alice Gradeless, testified that her mother was feeling well and was in good spirits in the morning before she left home and that death, in her opinion, resulted from natural causes.

18 old 151 -- 1762 -- Wm Berry & Naomi his wife, Jesse Grayless &
Trephenia his wife to Michael Todd land on Cornelius Branch, part of
Johnson's Tenure, 2/3 of 170 a., the same part of the said land which

& Trephenia Grayless by deed dated Dec. 21 1754.

Notes from a letter I received in 1980 on Caroline Co Berry Family:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
When I wrote you recently, I was under the impression that you were
under the Berry line. What I was referring to was that the first Wm.
Berry that we know of was in that group of puritans that can to A.A. Co.
in 1650. As you probably know they overthrew the Lord Baltimore and set
up their own government for a short time. Richard Preston was one of
the group of Commissioners who rules the colony. He lived at Patuxent. 
He was also Secretary of State since the records were kept at his home. 
The first Wm. Berry married his daughter. Dorchester County was set up
in 1669. Before that Berry was in Dorchester County. He owned land
there, lower part, but not recorded in there land records since they had
not been started. They may be in Talbot since that part of Dorchester
was then a part of Talbot Co. The first time I have found this name was
in Jones' History of Dor. in a roster of men who fought the Indians in
1678. Berry later moved to Talbot co. One of his sons moved !!
------------------

Page 14 in Quakerism on Eastern Shore by Kenneth Carroll (get book)
tells of radical Puritan group from Virginia came into Md. & settled in
Providence near where Annapolis now stands. Wm. Berry was one of them
who joined Quakers in 1650's. Another Richard Preston at whose house
the records were kept from 1654 to 1660. Preston lived at Patuxent near
that river. Berry married Preston's daughter. His will in 1669 in
Calendar of Wills page 50 to grandchildren Wm. & James Berry personally.
---------------
In 1679 (same book) Thos. Marsh's will page 219 mentioned testators two
sisters: Margaret Berry & Eliz. Taylor. Wm. Berry & Thos. Taylor
witness. Did Wm. Berry marry twice? If so the sons were by the Preston
woman. Date of death Wm. Berry, 1693.
---------------
By 1678 Wm. Berry was listed in the men who were sent against Indians in
Dorchester County. Owned land in lower part of county. Moved to Talbot
Co. I know a doctor in Talbot who keep records of these early people. 
I can check with him if you wish. In Dorchester records there is a Naomi
Berry but does not say who she is. It would have to be an early Berry
to have married Harmon Johnson's dau. Naomi mentioned in 1700. Could
be another one.

------------------------------------------------------
Dorchester Co MD Land Records
----------------
1755 -- 15 old 271 -- Margaret Berry to Wm. Berry "Fortain."

From Rheta Scaffe - RRScaffe@hotmail.com

I have almost no information but was delighted to hear from you!!! My grandmother , Henrietta Elizabeth ?? (married name Reeves) died circa Jan/Feb 1951. Her obit stated she was the daughter of David Gradless and Regina Wood. I know the family Regina was from and some of the cousins and step cousins. I have not found any reference to David Gradless or what happened to him but I think Regina re-married Andrew? Hiott possibly by 1880 and ? Thornley about 1900. In the FamilySearch Index to 1880 Census I find Rosa Groaidless with about 7 children in Burns Twp, Colleton County, SC. a 7 year old girl is named Retta (short for Henrietta?) and there is an older girl named Peggy. This fits in for my Grandmother was born in 1873 and had a half sister named Peggy who married a Caddin. Incidentially, related children have had the given name of HARMON. Also in 1870 Census I found a surname GREELEY with husband named David, I forget wife's name, but children match older children shown with Rosa Groaidless in 1880; this was in southern part of Colleton County and neighbors names match those that should be family relations/friends. I saw a references in some of your notes to Gradeless in Charleston County, St James Santee Parish. FYI, this is across the Santee River from Georgetown County. Burns Twp, Colleton is appx halfway between Beaufort, SC and Georgetown, SC. I will be reading your notes along and along. If you have any other info I would appreciate it. The only other lead I have is 1860 Census for Charleston City, SC for Sam? Gradless, policeman, living in what appears to be boarding house, born in NC. Again I appreciate Your Info. Thanks, Rheta

Woman serious after crash

JANESVILLE _ A two-vehicle collision at 5:36 p.m. Sunday near the Kessler and Hanover roads intersection left a Footville woman in serious condition.
A van driven by Aaron Grayless, 20, Janesville, apparently failed to stop for a sign and crashed into a minivan driven by Tammy Gumtow, 29, Footville. Gumtow was taken to Mercy Hospital, where she is listed in serious condition with a broken leg and skull fracture; two small children in her vehicle were uninjured.
Grayless was treated at Mercfy Hospital and released.
Neither were wearing seat belts at the time, but the children had been properly restrained. Grayless was cited for inattentive driving and failure to stop for a stop sign.

City man arrested in death of girlfriend

An Amarillo man was arrested Friday morning walking near Oklahoma City University, hours after police say he stuck a two-foot samurai sword into his Amarillo girlfriend's neck at an Oklahoma City motel.

Nathan Crowell, 21, of Amarillo was arrested on a complaint of first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing to death 20-year-old Melinda K. Grayless of Amarillo, Oklahoma City police Sgt. Robert Douglas said.

The couple was traveling to Amarillo from Terre Haute, Ind., where Grayless's parents live, said family friend Pauline Pardee of Amarillo. Crowell has family living in Oklahoma, Pardee said.

Douglas said police received a call at about 2:40 a.m. Friday about a man beating a woman at the Motel 6 near Interstate 40 and Meridian Avenue.

When police arrived, they found Grayless dead outside a motel room with multiple stab wounds, Douglas said.

The couple's two girls - a newborn about 3 days old and a 1-year-old - were still in the motel room, Douglas said.

Crowell was the father of the two children, Pardee said. Crowell and Grayless were unemployed; however, Grayless had worked at Paradise Too, said Pardee, who was Grayless's roommate.

Pardee said Crowell and Grayless had been together for about two years.

Pardee said Crowell graduated from Randall High School, and Grayless had attended Tascosa High School.

Douglas said police began searching for Crowell, who had checked into the room with Grayless. At about 7:50 a.m., police got a call about a suspicious person walking near Oklahoma City University who was demanding to talk with a priest and creating a disturbance, Douglas said.

"They approached him, and he appeared to be the suspect from the stabbing," Douglas said.

The sword was recovered at the scene, Douglas said.

Crowell was interviewed Friday morning by police. Investigators recovered the vehicle Crowell was suspected of using to drive away from the crime scene, Douglas said.

Substance believed to be meth found in motel room of stabbing suspect

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Police on Monday said they are not sure whether a substance believed to be methamphetamine that was discovered in the motel room of a man accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend played a role in the women's death.

Nathan Crowell, 21, of Amarillo, Texas, is in the Oklahoma County Jail facing a first-degree murder complaint in the death of 20-year-old Melinda K. Grayless.

Police found Grayless' body outside the motel room with a two-foot sword sticking out of her throat and several stab wounds. The woman's sons -- a 4-year-old and an infant born just three days earlier -- were inside the motel room, police said.

Crowell faces no complaints regarding the substance found in the room, but Oklahoma City police Capt. LaNell White said detectives were still investigating the matter.

''I know they have interviewed him, but I don't know the results of that interview,'' White said.

White said she expects a murder charge to be filed against Crowell this week. He also faces a trespassing complaint after police found him wandering the campus of Oklahoma City University hours after the stabbing early Friday morning, White said.

Police responded to the Motel 6 near the intersection of Interstate 40 and Meridian Ave. after a complaint of a man hitting a woman.

Grayless and Crowell had checked into the room together, police said. White said officials were still investigating a possible motive for the attack.

White said it appears Grayless had been living in Amarillo, Texas, but that her family was from Terre Haute, Ind.

Slaying Suspect Possible Robber
From staff reports and wire reports

Oklahoma City police found a substance they think is methamphetamine in the motel room of an Amarillo man accused of killing his girlfriend on Friday, while Terre Haute, Ind., authorities hope to determine if the man's car matches the suspect vehicle in a mid-November bank robbery.

An Amarillo man, Robert Shoffner, said the accused killer, 21-year-old Nathan Crowell, attacked his car last summer with a Japanese-style sword.

Crowell is in the Oklahoma County Jail facing a first-degree murder complaint in the death of 20-year-old Melinda K. Grayless, whose body police found outside a motel room. She had been stabbed several times and had a two-foot sword sticking out of her throat.

The woman's sons - a 4-year-old and an infant born just three days earlier - were inside the motel room, police said.

Oklahoma City police discovered the slaying after they responded to a Motel 6 on a complaint of a man hitting a woman. Grayless and Crowell checked into the room together, police said. Oklahoma City police Capt. LaNell White said police are still investigating a possible motive for the attack.

White said she expects a murder charge to be filed this week. Crowell also faces a trespassing complaint after police found him wandering the campus of Oklahoma City University hours after the stabbing, White said.

According to the Terre Haute Tribune-Star, Terre Haute police Capt. Rick Erney said Crowell is a "very, very strong suspect" in the Nov. 17 robbery of the Fifth Third Bank in Terre Haute.

Terre Haute authorities are working with Oklahoma City investigators to determine whether a car recovered there is the same as a vehicle used in the bank robbery.

A cousin of Grayless said the couple was in Terre Haute to spend Thanksgiving with Grayless' parents, but left early after Crowell said his grandfather was ill, according to the Terre Haute newspaper.

Shoffner said Monday his complaint following Crowell's attack on his car resulted in charges against Crowell.

A deputy at the Potter County Detention Center said late Monday that Crowell was arrested Aug. 24 on a felony prohibited weapon charge, which was later dismissed, and a Class A misdemeanor criminal mischief charge. The criminal mischief charge was in connection with damage to a motor vehicle, the deputy said.

Crowell was released on $2,500 bond on the misdemeanor, the deputy said.

Shoffner said news of the Friday slaying of Grayless left him "totally upset," because his encounter with Crowley made it plain to him that the man could be dangerous.

Shoffner said the incident began after he pulled up behind Crowley's car sitting unmoving at a residential intersection in Amarillo.

He honked and then passed the vehicle, Shoffner said, but Crowley pursued him, then attacked Shoffner's car with a "high-dollar" katana-style sword about four feet long.

Police: Stabbing Victim Also Shot

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Amarillo woman found dead Friday outside a motel room in Oklahoma City was shot as well as stabbed, police said. Only the stab wounds were previously reported to The Associated Press by Oklahoma City police.

The body of Melinda Grayless, 20, had gunshot wounds and wounds from a two-foot sword, Oklahoma City police said Tuesday. Nathan Crowell, the 21-year-old boyfriend of the victim, allegedly killed Grayless and is also suspected of robbing an Indiana bank.

Crowell is suspected in the robbery of a Terre Haute, Ind., bank on Nov. 17 - a week before he was arrested on a complaint of first-degree murder for allegedly stabbing and shooting Grayless.

The couple's children - a 1-year-old girl and a 3-day-old girl - were found in the motel room along with a substance thought to be methamphetamine, Oklahoma City police Capt. LaNell White said.

Officers initially reported that the children were boys because both had masculine-sounding names, White said. The Associated Press also earlier reported that the older child was 4 years old.

Terre Haute police Capt. Rick Erney said Crowell matches the description of the robbery suspect and was in the area visiting Grayless' family the day of the robbery.

Christina Lawrence of Terre Haute is Grayless' cousin and the couple's former roommate. She said she was not surprised Crowell is suspected in the robbery, but she doesn't understand why he would kill Grayless.

"She loved him with all her heart," Lawrence said.

Lawrence said the couple had been visiting Grayless' family in Terre Haute the week before and had planned to stay longer because the baby was due in a few weeks.

They left before the holiday because Crowell claimed his grandfather in Oklahoma City was ill and needed him, Lawrence said. Now, the family realizes a bank robbery might have hastened their departure.

"We all wondered how they got the money to leave here," said Lawrence, who also said she doesn't think Grayless knew about Crowell's possible involvement in the robbery.

Crowell has a history of minor drug- and alcohol-related and weapons possession arrests, Amarillo police said. In August, he was arrested after he slammed a different sword on another motorist's car in what appeared to be a fit of road rage, Amarillo police Cpl. Jerry Neufeld said.

Crowell is in the Oklahoma County Jail without bail on complaints of first-degree murder and trespassing.

Authorities in Oklahoma City and Terre Haute are working together to determine whether the car recovered there is the same one used as the getaway car in the robbery, Erney said.

"We're really close to solving the case," he said.

Amarillo Man Charged with OKC Murder
The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A first-degree murder charge has been filed against an Amarillo man who allegedly killed his girlfriend last week outside a motel room, authorities said.

Nathan Crowell, 21, is accused in the stabbing death of 20-year-old Melinda Grayless last Friday at a Motel 6.

Crowell is scheduled to be arraigned at about 11 a.m. today in Oklahoma County District Court.

Oklahoma City police Capt. LaNell White said authorities have determined that several wounds found in Grayless' body were from a stabbing, not from gunshots.

She said further investigation also showed that a 2-foot sword that police had said was found in Grayless' neck was actually found a short distance away from her body outside her and Crowell's motel room.

The couple's children - a 1-year-old girl and a newborn girl - were found in the motel room along with a substance thought to be methamphetamine, White said.

Police Lt. Steve Pacheco said police did not pursue drug charges or a trespassing charge against Crowell because of the overriding weight of the murder charge.

"Our concern is filing the murder charge," Pacheco said.

Crowell was arrested several hours after Grayless' death after reports of a suspicious person on the campus of Oklahoma City University.

Crowell also is a suspect in the robbery of a Terre Haute, Ind., bank on Nov. 17 - a week before his murder arrest.

Terre Haute police said Crowell matches the description of the robbery suspect and was in the area visiting Grayless' family the day of the robbery.

Crowell has a history of minor drug- and alcohol-related and weapons possession arrests, Amarillo police said.

City Man Wants Death Penalty

Crowell Offers Guilty Plea in Stabbing Seath

His public defender does

guilty plea in exchange
for the death penalty.


OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Amarillo man offered to plead guilty in return for the death penalty during his murder trial Monday in Oklahoma County District Court.

Nathan Lewis Crowell told jurors he deserved to die for the Nov. 24, 2000, killing of Melinda Kay Grayless, his 20-year-old girlfriend. Both were from Amarillo. She was stabbed with a 2-foot-long sword.

Assistant District Attorney Connie Pope offered to discuss filing a bill of particulars to seek the death penalty, saying, "I can make this trial go away."

Crowell, who was 21 at the time of Grayless' death, said that if Pope wanted to do that, "let her do it."

Melinda Kay Grayless: The 20-year-old
gave birth to her second child three
days before her stabbing death.

But Crowell's attorney, public defender Cynthia Tedder, said she could not allow him to enter the plea, which she said would be suicide.

The proceeding continued without prosecutors asking for the death penalty. Crowell faces life in prison with or without the possibility of parole if he is convicted.

Crowell and Grayless had lived together about two years at the time of the killing. Both were unemployed, but Grayless had worked at Paradise Too.

Crowell graduated from Randall High School. Grayless attended Tascosa High School.

Crowell had a history of minor drug- and alcohol-related and weapons possession charges, Amarillo police said.

Defense attorneys are trying to prove Crowell was insane at the time of Grayless' death, which happened three days after the couple's second daughter was born.

The infant and a 12-month-old girl were in the motel room when Grayless was killed. Both children were unharmed.

The couple were headed home to Amarillo from Indiana when they had to stop in Oklahoma City for Grayless to deliver her baby.

Crowell claims voices from the television told him he had to kill his girlfriend to stop the plague.

The plea offer came shortly after Crowell confessed that he robbed a Terre Haute, Ind., bank Nov. 17, 2000 - a week before he was arrested in the killing of his girlfriend.

After repeated questioning by the prosecutor, Crowell identified himself in a videotape of the bank robbery that was played in court.

The defendant said he took the firearm used in the robbery but later returned the gun.

"I really didn't know what I was doing at the time," Crowell testified.

Crowell said he has smoked marijuana and taken cocaine and LSD. Crowell said in his interview with police that he had taken methamphetamine the morning of the slaying.

He testified he thought the voices he heard in Oklahoma and before the Indiana bank robbery came from God. Now, he believes the voices were from the devil, the defendant said.

"I believed they were true," Crowell told jurors. "I really thought everyone was going to die. I think it was better for one person to die than everybody to die."

Crowell said he thought he was supposed to save the world. Tedder earlier said the defendant thought he had to stop the Apocalypse.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma County jury is recommending life without the possibility of parole for an Amarillo, Texas, man who said voices told him to kill the mother of his children.

The panel of nine women and three men deliberated for more than four hours Wednesday before convicting Nathan Lewis Crowell of first-degree murder.

Attorneys for Crowell tried to prove that the 24-year-old was insane when he stabbed Melinda Kay Grayless 11 times with a 3-foot samurai-type sword in a west Oklahoma City motel room on Nov. 24, 2000.

One wound went through the heart and another into the jugular vein of the neck of Grayless, who would have turned 21 on Thursday.

Nathan Lewis Crowell: A jury has recommended life without parole for man who said voices from the television told him to stab Grayless.

Crowell testified that he heard voices from the television telling him to kill his girlfriend and infant daughter because they had the plague.

As Assistant District Attorney Connie Pope questioned Crowell, she turned on TV monitors in the courtroom and started displaying photographs of Grayless' stab wounds.

"All these pictures are talking to you," Pope said. "You don't strike out in anger and kill someone."

A defense expert said Crowell was a paranoid schizophrenic, but a prosecution expert said he was a psychopath who was faking the tests.

Crowell admitted to investigators and jurors he killed his girlfriend. Jurors had to decide whether the defendant was insane when the stabbing occurred.



Grayless and Crowell stopped in Oklahoma City so the victim could deliver a daughter.

They had been visiting Grayless' family in Terre Haute, Ind., and were on their way home to Amarillo.

Grayless was stabbed three days after giving birth. Riley, the infant, and their 12-month-old daughter, Ryann, were in the motel room when their mother was killed. Neither child was hurt.

"This really doesn't change anything or make me feel any better," said Sharon Mitchell, the victim's aunt from Amarillo. "The girls - I feel the worse for his girls. They don't have parents."

District Judge Virgil Black still must set a sentencing date.

Prosecution rests case in Stocker trial Defense begins today

Prosecutors put the finishing touches on their case against Josh Stocker on Tuesday, calling in a final few witnesses to fill in the gaps on a story they have been weaving before the jury during the past six days.

Randall County Criminal District Attorney James Farren rested his case after calling DNA experts and tangential witnesses who bolstered the accounts of his main witnesses from last week.

“We feel like the scientific evidence pulled any loose ends together,” Farren said. “We also believe the last two witnesses cemented the admissions of the defendant.”

Stocker is facing a single capital murder charge, but not the death penalty, for his alleged role in the March 2003 killing of Dustin Pool.

Farren has centered his case on a story of rival drug gangs competing over turf and narcotics profits. That competition turned deadly after Pool made threats to a rival drug cartel in which Stocker was trying to make his name, according to the state’s theory of the crime.

Stocker and several other co-defendants allegedly kidnapped and beat Pool before finally suffocating him and burying his body under several feet of concrete.

That version of the story will be under fire from the defense today, as they begin to put on their own version of the case, which is expected to last about a day.

“I think the testimony that will come tomorrow will take the case in a significantly different direction,” said defense attorney Mike Watkins. “I’m confident we’re going to do our best to present our version of what happened, but what will sway a jury will be up to that jury.”

In order to sway that jury, Watkins and fellow attorney C.J. McElroy will have to overcome the testimony that was put on Tuesday.

Tyler Hale, who admitted on the stand that he provided a garage for hiding the vehicle carrying Pool’s body overnight after the slaying, tied Stocker to the suffocation of Pool, relaying a conversation he had with fellow defendant Craig Kimberlin, the alleged head of the drug cartel.

“Craig said he (Pool) was taped up - they taped his head up - and (Frank) Chacon cut a hole for him to breathe,” Hale said. “But Josh said, ‘He don’t need to breathe,’ and taped him back up.”

The final two witnesses Tuesday could be crucial for the prosecution, because neither of the witnesses are charged in the case. The defense has attempted to poke holes in the prosecution’s testimony by pointing out that nearly everyone involved is facing charges, and therefore has a stake in giving the state what it wants.

Kelly Grayless, former common-law wife of co-defendant Josh Bledsoe, relayed secondhand conversations that seemed to back up the state’s theory of the crime. But the most direct testimony was presented by Glenda Keeling, who said she heard Stocker admit to his part in the killing.

Keeling - whose former husband, Destry Keeling, is also charged with capital murder - said she was there the night Stocker, Bledsoe and Keeling were trying to find a place to stash Pool’s body near Lake Meredith.

Glenda Keeling said she originally did not know that Pool’s body was in the back of Bledsoe’s vehicle, but Stocker admitted what had happened as they looked for a safe location.

“Josh told Destry what had happened,” she said. “He said that DP (Pool) was squealing like a pig and he had to shut him up.”

Glenda Keeling testified that Stocker was calm and cool that night, despite the stressful circumstances.

“He (Stocker) was scary,” she said. “He acted like he was possessed. It scared me bad.”

The defense will start presenting its case this morning at 8:30 a.m.

Grayles in Literature: http://www.rnib.org.uk/wesupply/publicat/spotlite/dec97.htm
BOGARDE, Dirk: Closing ranks. 11084(1) TB. Viking, 1997. 

Read by Steve Hodson, 11 hrs 43 mins.

This book contains language which might be considered offensive. There have been
Grayles at Hartleap since Canute. Now they stand round the bed of the very last of their
nannies, saying farewell as she slips away. In the strange clarity that comes with the last
remission, she looks at the saddened faces and surprises them all. None of them is going
to get anything in her will. Thus begins the final demolition of a once-proud house. As
the terrible truth becomes known, they desperately try to close ranks.

Portrait and biographical record of Johnson and Pettis Counties, Missouri : Chicago: Chapman Pub. Co., 1895, Pages 359-360:

ALFRED L. STIRLEN. Progressive agriculturists throughout the country have learned that there is a profitable source of revenue in the raising of fine stock, and to his occupation, therefore, a constantly increasing amount of attention is being devoted. Among the residents of Pettis County who have made a specialty of this line of work, we mention the name of Mr. Stirlen, the owner of a finely improved farm lying on section 3, township 45, range 21. Upon his place may be noted as fine stock as is to be found in this state, his specialities being Shorthorn and Durham cattle, Poland-china hogs and Denmark Horses.
          Nine miles from Ft. Wayne, in Allen County, Ind., the subject of this notice was born, August 17, 1857, being the son of Wilson R. and Cynthia (Gradless) Stirlen. His father who was born in Ohio, July 26, 1826, married his first wife there, and after her death removed to Indiana. Settling in Allen County, he pre-empted one hundred and sixty acres, which he cleared and placed under good cultivation, and upon which he still makes his home. After coming to Indiana, he married Miss Gradless, and they became the parents of three children. At the birth of the youngest, Alfred L., the mother died, and subsequently the father again married, becoming by this union the father of six children, of whom four still survive.
          The eldest son in the family, Josiah, is a resident of Hughesville Township, Pettis County; he is married and has three children. Allen, next in order of birth, is a farmer in Allen County, Ind., and also has three children. Mary Florence, the eldest child of the third union of Mr. Stirlen, became the wife of Samuel Stophlett of Ft. Wayne, Ind., but now Auditor of the Missouri Pacific Railroad, with headquarters at Kansas City, Mo., Hattie E. is the wife of Allen Metsker, baggage master in the employ of a railroad at Ft. Wayne. John and Clara reside with their parents.
          In the log cabin erected by his father soon after coming to Indiana, our subject first opened his eyes to the light. The first twenty years of his life were spent upon the home farm, in the cultivation of which he assisted. From there he went to Sedalia, and for eighteen months was in the employ of his uncle near that city. As soon as able, he bought a horse, for which he paid cash, and purchased another with the privilege of paying for it late. With this start, he rented a tract of land in Pettis County, and at once began the active life of an agriculturist.
          As a helpmaster in life's journey, Mr. Stirlen chose Miss Fannie Gorrell, with whom he was united in marriage February 28, 1883. Mrs. Stirlen was born ten miles north of Sedalia, December 7, 1861, being the daughter of Capt. John B. and Mary H (Tabb) Gorrell, the former born in Todd County, Ky., February 14, 1817 and the latter a native of Virginia, born February 7, 1815. In 1889 our subject bought his present homestead of one hundred and severity acres, upon which he has erected a comfortable residence, built good fences and made desirable improvements. Both as a general farmer and as a stock-raiser he has been very successful and is recognized as one of the efficient farmers and shrewd business men of the county
          Four children blessed the union of Mr. and Mrs. Stirlen, namely; Nannie Maud, who was born in Heath's Creek Township, Pettis County, April 13, 1884; Lura Blanche, born in Prairie Township this county, October 4, 1886; Wilson Robert, whose birth occurred in Prairie Township, October 30, 1888; and Walter Wayne, who passed away at the age of six months. In politics Mr. Stirlen is a Republican, but is not active in public affairs. His first Presidential ballot was cast for James Garfield, and he has since supported the candidates of the Republican party. with his wife, he holds membership in the Baptist Church.

SAMUEL H. COX, was born in the state of Pennsylvania, Huntingdon County, July 4, 1806, and is of Dutch extraction on both his paternal and maternal sides. He father, John Cox, was born in Maryland in 1780, and died in 1846. He was by occupation a blacksmith. He fought as a soldier in the war with Great Britain, 1812-1815. His wife, nee Susanna Henley, was born in Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania, in 1782 and died in 1819.
          Samuel H. Cox was reared in the State of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, his parents having moved to the several States mentioned during his childhood and youth. The trade first learned by Samuel was that of a blacksmith, which he followed from some time. From Indiana he went to Illinois and remained there for years engaged on the canal to within twenty miles of Chicago, and then went to Missouri, where he engaged in farming, which vocation he continued until coming to Texas in 1844. He stopped in Rusk county and began work as a carpenter, remained about four years, then moved to Montgomery county, where he staid two years, finally settling in Harrisburg, near Houston, in 1853. Since coming here Mr. Cox has been interested in farming pursuits. He was married, in 1832 to Miss Rosean, daughter of Matthew Grayless. Four children are now living as a result of this alliance, the names are given in their respective order of birth as follows — Emily J., Rebecca S., Maria L. and Margaret E.

      NATHAN GRADELESS, died of Lung fever, near Columbia City, Indiana, April 22, 1882, aged 52 years, 8 months and fifteen days.       He was born in Fayette County, Ohio, and moved with his parents to Indiana, where he was educated, and afterwards taught thirty-three terms of school. He was converted to God under the labors of Rev. A. V. Leonard- son, six years ago, and was soon li- censed to preach. He joined the Michigan Conference at Holland, in the fall of 1878 and was appointed to the Wayne Circuit, then to Indiana Point, then to Angola. He was or- dained deacon at Spring Arbor Con- ference in 1881, and was sent to Mish- awaka and Wakarusa, from which field the Lord took him to a better inheritance. He had labored hard through the winter in revival meet- ings, with good success. This spring he moved back to his farm to travel from there to his circuit, but his work was done, for the hand of dis- ease was heavy upon him, and in a few days of patient suffering, with great peace his spirit took its upward flight, leaving a wife and seven chil- dren with a large circle of relatives, to mourn their loss.       He was highly esteemed in the community where he had lived so long, and a very large congregation assembled at the Blue River church, where he had preached his first ser- mon, to pay their last respects to a faithful minister of the gospel, a good husband, a kind father, and a devoted Christian.       The writer improved the occasic

Mr. Whittington is a native of Caroline county, Maryland, where he was born September 29, 1808, and where he resided until 1834, when he came to Ohio and located in Licking county, where he resided one year. He then came to Mt. Vernon and engaged in draying, in which he continued several years, and after which he engaged in the manufacture and sale of tinware, which he conducted about two years. He then engaged with the firm of C. and E. Cooper, to do stove mounting, which he followed several years, when he was given the position of shipping clerk, and in consideration of his faithfulness and abilities he was retained with this firm in all twenty-eight years. In the year 1872 he established himself in the grocery business, in which he has since been engaged. He carries a good stock of staple and fancy groceries and confectioneries, flour and feed.

1902 (History of) The County of Ross (Ohio)
Bucksin Township: Page 315.

Alexander Harper located, temporarily, on the Pickaway plains in 1798 and there raised a crop. In 1800 he removed to the north part of Buckskin township, and settled on six hundred acres of land on Survey No. 2,291. He raised a family of nine children. James and Robert, brothers of Alexander Harper, settled on the same survey a year or two later, and Alexander and Robert died there in 1843.



The Waugh brothers, Joseph and Leaman, located in the northeast corner of the township as early as 1800 and improved farms, which they occupied for many years; but the family name is no longer represented in the township. James McConnell established a home near the Waughs about 1800.
One of the first tanneries in the community was established by this family. Robert Braden came from Pennsylvania in 1800 and settled on Survey 2,292, opening p a farm of one hundred acres, and spent the balance of his life.
He died in 1842 at the age of seventy-one. He was a soldier in the war of 1812. His son, Samuel Braden, spent his life in the township.

CAROLINE COUNTY, MARYLAND WILLS - Causey Recordings
	
Previous researchers have interpreted much from the individual Wills of 
Thomas Causey and two William Causey in Maryland.  Listed below are four wills 
in chronological order from 1776 to 1784, the sequence of which more adequately 
explain the relationship of Thomas with the two Williams.  The wills clarify those 
relationships when reviewed in the context of the Causey successions and help in 
understanding the family relationships. The following information was gathered by 
Virginia Jordan, CGRS for Garnett T. Causey, III in 1994.  The first of these is 
in the Maryland Will Book CC#A Pages 197-198. (Also found in Book 41, Folio 69)

	#1-THOMAS CAUSEY, 'sick and weak in body' April 1, 1776, filed May 6, 1776, 
	Witnessed by James Johnson, Jesse Greyless, Uriah Troxwell.
	Signed with an 'X' possibly indicating his failing health.
	Bequeaths:
	to his son, William:  Negro man Jacob and Negro girl Ester
	to his son, Solomon; Negro boy Abraham and Negro woman Lucy
	to his grand daughter, Frankey, daughter of Solomon, her choice of a cow, a 
		sheep and a young sow.
	to his unnamed grand daughter of his son, Nehemiah; 12 pounds common money
	Balance of the estate to be divided among his grandchildren:
		to his grandson, Nehemiah, of his son, Thomas, Jr., 
		to his grandson, William Thomas, of his son-in-law, Allen Thomas.
	Note:  As they are not named specifically in the will, Nehemiah, Thomas and 
	his unnamed daughter, the wife of Allen Thomas, are probably deceased.

	This record is essentially duplicated in the following:
	Magruder's Maryland Colonial Abstracts, Wills, Accounts and Inventories, 
		1772-1777, five volumes, compiled by James M. Magruder, Jr., 1968, 
		Genealogical Publ. Co., Baltimore, MD. Wills 41, folio 69, page 18. 
	Thomas Causey, Caroline Co., MD, Will exec. April 1, 1776, filed May 6, 1776.
	"To my son, William Causey, 2 negroes.
	To my son, Solomon Causey, Executor, 2 negroes.
	To my grandaughter, Frankey Causey, daughter of Solomon Causey, choice of one 
		cow, one sheep and one young sow.
	To my grandaughter, the daughter of Nehemiah Causey, 12pounds.
	To my grandsons, Residue divided between Nehemiah Causey, son of Thomas 
		Causey, Jr., and William Thomas, son of Allen Thomas.
	Attest: James Johnson, Jesse Grayless, Uriah Foxwell.
	Inventory: Jan. 7, 1777 (Inventory 125, folio 77)
	Appraisal: March 29, 1777, William Douglass, Abraham Collins, 
		In the amount of 168pounds 1shilling and 3-1/2pence.
	Nearest of Kin: Wm. Causey, Frederick Causey.
	Executor: Solomon Causey."

	#2-WILLIAM CAUSEY, Feb. 13, 1781, 'in perfect health', filed Feb. 8, 1783. 
Witnessed by Cornelus Johnson, Jesse Grayless and Joseph Trotter. (Note that this 
William Causey lived two years past the drawing of the will, and that Jesse Greyless, 
witness, also witnessed the will of #1 Thomas Causey.)
	Bequeaths:
	to his younger daughter, Priscilla Causey, One negro girl, one mare, young 
horse, red cow and her calf, two year old heifer, two ewes and lambs, one feather 
bed and furniture, one lining wheel, one wolling wheel, one sow's pigs, four earthen

should share the expense of finishing the house that William is now building.  William 
to have 1/4 of cut hogs, 1/3 sheep and 50 pounds hard money or value thereof, paid by 
Isaac by the 5th of December, 1781. William to have all of my land South and West of 
division line made by me, between sons William and Isaac.
	to his son, Isaac, the remainder part of lands, negros and movable estate.

given to William, Sr.'s son William, Jr.)

	#3-WILLIAM COURSEY, May 4, 1785, 'very sick and weak in body', filed May 13, 
1785.  Witnessed by John Stevens, Jr., Isaac Anderson and Owen Cooper.	
	Bequeaths:
	to my wife, Rebecca Coursey, all estate, real and personal.  Rebecca was 
		appointed executrix of the estate.  
	(No childen named.)

	#4-WILLIAM CAUSEY, April 14, 1794, 'in perfect health', filed June 17, 1794.  
Witnessed by James Dillon, William Hobbs and Elizabeth Waddell.
	Bequeaths:
	'to my cozen,' John Causey, son of Priscilla Causey, all of my part of her 
estate left in hands of Beacham Causey, administrator to her estate. (Note: 'cozen' 
in this period simply meant 'relative.'  In reality, John Causey was a nephew of 
#4 William; note #4 William's relationship to John Causey in the following.)
	to Michael Todd, Jr., a Negro man Jacob.
	to his daughter, Kitturah Causey, all real and personal estate.  Providing, 
that if she dies without heirs, her estate will be divided equally between Peter 
Taylor Causey, Beacham Causey, Elizabeth Dawson, Sarah Fisher, Lucrocy Polk, John 
Causey the son of Priscilla and Isaac Causey.
	Peter T. Causey is appointed executor of the estate.

ANALYSIS OF THE WILLS:

	The chain of family relationships over 18 years follows from #1 Thomas 
Causey to #2 William Causey to #4 William Causey. These men are indicated to be: 
father, son and grandson, respectively.  The Negro slave property, Jacob, willed 
by #1 Thomas to #2 William and finally to #4 William further ties the the three 
men together.  Note that all three of these men died in Maryland.  There is nothing 
in these wills that clarifies the parentage of William Causey, 1744-1828 of 
Mississippi or suggests his family relationship to these men.
	The will of #3 William Coursey filed May 13, 1785 indicates no connection 
to either #1 Thomas, #2 William or #4 William.  It is included only to show the 
possible derivation of the name 'Rebecca' that has been previously suggested as 
the name of the first wife of William Causey, 1744-1828.
	Thomas Causey (#1) died in May of 1776, William (#2) died in February of 
1783 and William (#3) died in May, 1785.  A William Causey is noted in the Suffolk 
Co., Virginia area before 1789 and it is noted that a William Cossee (sic, Causey) 
lived in the Beaufort District (Barnwell County) near Pipe Creek, South Carolina 
from about 1789-1801.  Obviously, neither of the two Williams of Maryland is the 
William Causey, 1744-1828, of Suffolk Co., VA, nor of Beaufort Co., SC.
	The Revolutionary War pay vouchers of William Causey, 1744-1828, indicate 
that he was a soldier in South Carolina from 1779 to 1782, and at the time of his 
these vouchers he was living in Beaufort District, South Carolina.  The implication 
of this service record is that he was in Maryland from his enlistment in Capt. 
Richard Andrew's Company in the 14th Battalion, Caroline Co., MD, in 1776 and until 
shortly before he was promoted to Captain on Aug 11, 1779 in South Carolina. 
	If William Causey, 1744-1828, were directly connected to the lineage of 
Thomas (#1), William (#2) and William (#4), one might have expected to see him 
listed in William (#4)'s will, but he is not mentioned.  However, there are given 
names in these Wills that bespeak some possible family connection.

Young Immigrants to Canada
Alphabetic List Of Miss Rye's Children, February 1, 1878

This information is taken from RG17 Vol 214, #22013 held in the National 
Archives of Canada. Although I cannot be sure, I believe this list was 
prepared by Miss Rye in answer to the problems which arose in 1875 when
the Doyle Report was released. Mr. Doyle was sent in 1874 to inspect the
children sent to Canada by the Unions (workhouses). His report was very 
negative about Miss Rye's work and she did not bring any children to 
Canada for a few years after the release of the report.  This list of 
children is very odd in that each child appears in a list and is given 
a number.  You then have to look at other pages and match the number to
 get the comments. I have tried to piece together the pages to give you 
a complete look at a child's record. The list is in the same order as 
given (thus the "A"s are together but not necessarily in strict betical 
order). Occasionally you will see "Stet" which I believe was used to mean
"as before." I also believe this list was for all of 
the children brought to Canada thus far [1878].

TENINO -- Authorities have identified two pilots whose airplanes collided 
Sunday night above a rural area in southern Thurston County, killing one of 
them and injuring the other.
The pilot who died, Scott Christopher Devlin, 33, was on his way to Renton 
from his hometown of Camas when his Cessna 210 crashed into another 
northbound aircraft, county and federal officials said Monday. 

Ghryn E. Loveness, 20, was flying the other airplane. He was headed home to 
Vashon Island in a Cessna 170 after departing from Portland, county and 
federal officials said. 

Thurston County Sheriff's deputies responded to a call at 8:39 p.m. Sunday 
at the 7600 block of Skookumchuck Road, where they found two crash sites 
about one-quarter mile apart. The planes collided about 800 feet above 
ground. 

A witness who called 9-1-1 saw Devlin's plane doing stunts in the air, 
including sharp nosedives followed by swift ascents, shortly before the 
collision.
Kathy Grayless had been watching Devlin's airplane from her kitchen window 
as it completed several flying stunts, she said Monday. 

Then she heard a crash and spotted pieces of the plane falling from the sky. 
A lone wing twirling down from above was the last part of Devlin's plane 
that Grayless saw.
"You couldn't even tell that it was a plane," she said of the wreckage. "It 
was a big, mangled mess. It was horrible to watch because you knew that (a 
crash) is what had happened."

1882 History of Whitley County page 251:

        MARTIN IRELAND, M. D. , is a native of Ross County, Ohio, where he was born November 29, 1821; son of Stephen and Elizabeth (Carmean) Ireland, both natives of Maryland, and the parents of twelve children, eight of whom are yet living. They came to Ross County, Ohio, about 1805; were identified with the early settlement of the county. Mr. Ireland followed the occupation of farming during life. The mother passed away in Ross County, and the father, in 1848, moved to McLean County, Ill., and from there went to Missouri to look after some property in 1857, where he died April 3 of that year. Martin remained on the home farm until twenty-one years of age, receiving such education as the schools of that day afforded. After leaving home, be engaged in teaching winters, and was variously employed during the summer months. He was married, September 23, 1847, to Sarah Fellers, a native of Virginia. She came to Ohio at the age of four years, and to Whitley County when thirteen. Dr. Ireland came to Whitley County, Ind., the fall of 1846, and taught the first school in the first school building erected in Columbia City. The next year he decided to perfect himself in the study of medicine, to which he had paid some attention previously; and, in 1849, attended medical lectures in Cincinnati. He located for the practice of his profession in Fayette County, Ohio, remaining six years, after which he returned to Columbia City, practicing here for over seventeen years, when he removed to Nokomis, Ill., remaining there seven years; but, in April, 1880, Dr. Ireland and family returned to Columbia City, where they have since resided. Their family consists of nine children-Augusta V., Arabella A., Clara V., Wooster M., Franklin S., John M., Sarah J., Merritta W. and Homer A. Dr. I. is a Republican; a member of the A., F. & A. M., of Columbia City, and a graduate of the Wooster Medical University of Cleveland.

1882 History of Whitley County History of Union Township pages 185-186:

        IN the early part of the year 1839, several persons then residing within the territory now constituting Union Township, Whitley County, petitioned the proper authorities for the organization of their territory into a township. In answer to the prayer of the petitioners, it was ordered that an election be held at the residence of Joseph Pierce on the 4th day of July, 1839. Talcott Perry was appointed Inspector of said election. At this election, Perry was elected Justice of the Peace in and for said township, which was named Union, upon an agreement to that effect between the said Perry and George W. Oman. Perry was the first settler in the township. In the month of June, 1837, Benjamin Gardner, a native of New York, settled with his family in this township, on the farm now owned by Joseph Baldwin. Dr. Joseph Pierce, a native of Greene County, N.Y., located in this township in the spring of 1837; was the first physician in the township, and the only one for many years. At the time of his first advent into this county, he brought with him a general stock of merchandise, consisting of dry goods, groceries, hardware, etc., etc. This stock of goods was owned for a time jointly by Pierce & Starkweather. In the spring of 1837, Horace Cleveland, a native of Catskill, N.Y., purchased land in this township (being the same land now owned by the Wigent heirs), and during the following season built a cabin and made some preparations for bringing his family, which he did in the winter following. Some time during the year 1835, George W. Oman purchased a part of the land constituting the farm on which he now resides, and on September 30, 1837, he and his wife pitched their tent on this land and commenced the necessary preparations for the erection of a cabin, which was to be for a time their future domicile. The following-named persons assisted him in raising the cabin: William Vanmeter, William and Charles Gradeless, Samuel Nickey, Talcott Perry, Jacob Diffendarfer, Benjamin Gardner and son, Francis Tulley and Wells Smith. The Gradelesses, Nickey and Diffendarfer were citizens of Allen County. Mrs. Oman had among other things prepared a quantity of doughnuts, of which William Gradeless ate heartily. During the night he had a very severe attack of cholera morbus. In speaking of the matter afterward, he said he had eaten too much of Mrs. Oman?s ?crooked? bread.

1882 History of Whitley County pages 191-192:

        Mrs. Oman relates that, during one winter, soon after their settlement here, they lived on bread made from buckwheat ground but not bolted, this, with venison, constituting their entire stock of provisions. For a year or two after their settlement here, their salt cost them about $3 per bushel. During the first two or three years of pioneer life, these people brought a large part of t heir supplies from Elkhart and the prairies thereabout. At this early day, it was impossible to get the absolute necessities of life, even at Fort Wayne. These hardy pioneers obtained a very large proportion of their meat supplies from the forest, drawing largely on the deer, wild turkeys, and, after a few years, upon the wild hogs. Dr. Pierce kept, at times, a partial supply of flour, meat, and perhaps some other provisions, but these he sold at such exorbitant prices that the people could so much better by going to the prairies and laying in their own provisions. Oman says: "I sold my wedding vest to William Gradeless to pay for a few potatoes, to help in carrying us through the first winter. I worked for 50 cents a day, and I paid 60 cents a bushel for corn." During the first year, Mrs. Oman drove the oxen to break fourteen acres of ground.

GREGORY

      Mrs. Mary Gregory, well-known teacher and long-time resident of Bay City, died peacefully on June 18, 2002 at 8:50 p.m. at the Methodist Hospital in Houston. She had an abundant , joyful life and was a blessing to her family and friends.
      She is survived by: her husband, Cecil E. "Gregg" Gregory, her daughters and sons-in-law, Pam and Mike Rossman of Georgetown, and Debbie and Kenneth Seifert of Pasadena, her seven grandchildren, Natalie Renee Seifert, Ryan Gregory Seifert, Mary Anna Rossman, Kelsey Jo Seifert, Robert Gregory "Ross" Rossman, Spencer Carson Seifert, and Holly Elizabeth Seifert. Her brother and sister-in-law, Woodrow Wilson and Lillie Mae Worthington of Cook's Point, Texas, her nieces, Melinda Jane Worthington Grayless of Richmond, Texas, Beverly Kaye Worthington De Boise of Arcata, Calif., and her nephew, James Irvin Worthington of Bryan. Last, but not lease, her three granddogs and one grandcat.
      Mary Ella Worthington Gregory was born on December 18, 1918 in Cook's Point, Texas. She grew up on the family farm in Cook's Point with her 3 brothers. Her mother, Eunice Worthington was a teacher and a great woman of faith. Mary followed in her mother's footsteps and graduated from Sam Houston State University, obtaining a B. S. in Business Administration and began her career in teaching. This career spanned 38 years, 33 of which were at Bay City High School teaching typing, shorthand, and business skills. Mary was a gifted and devoted teacher, influencing many students. Many of her students continue to use the skills Mary taught them today.
      Mary was happily married for 57 years to C. E. "Gregg" Gregory. They met on New Years Day, 1945, at Camp Hulen in Palacios, and quickly fell in love, and were married on August 24, 1945, after he returned from oversears duty. They lived their entire married life in Bay City. It was a marriage full of fun and laughter and family life was their biggest priority.
      Mary loved her church family and was an active member of the First United Methodist Church of Bay City, teaching Sunday School for 25 years and serving the church in many leadership capacities. She served as president of both the United Methodist Women and the Fellowship Class. She was a founding member of the ADC'ers (Age Doesn't Count) and served on the Administrative Board, the Council of Ministries, the Library Committee, the Senior Adult Council (chair), and the Christian Education Board (chair). In 1974, she was honored to receive the Mother of the Year Award. She also received a pin of honor from the United Methodist Women for her service to missions. She enjoyed helpig with Vacation Bible School and with the Methodist Youth Fellowship. She supported all of the activities of the church by remaining active until her recent illness. She was a member of the teacher's sorority Delta Kappa Gamma, Matagorda County Retired Teachers, and AARP. While teaching she was active in Girl Scouts and Little League and she sponsored class trips, class parties, and senior parties.
      Mary loved to be on the go! She enjoyed traveling with friends on special trips. She loved music and fine arts events, and attended many concerts and dramatic productions. She loved to laugh and she loved good food (including Frito chili pie and Blue Bell ice cream) and she loved to watch the Houston Rockets. She enjoyed life to the fullest
      Mary was a loving wife, devoted mother, and a loyal friend. She will be greatly missed, but we rejoice that she has joined the great communion of saints. Mary's faith sustained and strengthened her in life and she has left a powerful spiritual legacy for her loved ones. "Praise God From Whom All Blessings Flow."

ENDS 40 YEARS SERVICE AS
SOLDIER; RETIRES ON BIRTHDAY

-----
GENERAL IRELAND RETIRES FROM MILITARY SERVICE ON MAY 31ST, HIS 64TH BIRTHDAY— WILL TOUR EUROPE AND RETURN TO WASHIGNTON ABOUT CHRISTMAS TIME.

-----

      This is Gen. Merritt W. Ireland's birthplace. He is 64 years of age, and looks fifty. It is also "thirty" for him, so far as the Army is concerned. Thus it is a happy day in his calendar and a sad day in his life.
      For forty long years he has worn the uniform of his country, and now he must lay it aside for multi and plus fours. Never again will be strap a John Brown belt around his slim waist and never again will he war the chapeau and flowing plumes of his order. Fortunately, he is a Knight Templar and a Thirty-third degree Mason, so when there are any big functions, and he cares to do so, he can decorate himself in an array that would have made Solomon jealous, and parade up and down the avenue to his heart's content.
      This is not Gen. Ireland's style, however. He never was a parader or a poser. He's too much of a Hoosier for that, and too fine a gentleman to appear what he is not. Whenever the Army parades, he parades, and whenever his duty demanded that he wear his uniform, he wore it, and wore it proudly.
      Last Sunday he came into church fully uniformed. It was the first time since the World War that anyone in the little Presbyterian meeting house had ever seen their General in uniform in church. Gen. Ballington Booth's son, Charles Brandon Booth, of the Volunteers of American, was to speak from the pulpit that day. Did our General come out thus attired as if paying soldierly tribute to the army of the Lord" It is known that he has a very high regard for both the Salvation Army and the Volunteers; so it would be but natural that he should meet them on their own ground, uniform for uniform.
      But it was not so. He came o the pew of his running mate, and tapping him on the shoulder, said: "I wish you would pay my respects to the minister and tell him that I have to leave early today and go to Carlisle, Penn. My little boys are going to graduate there tomorrow, and I must be on hand.: He left during the service and motored some 100 miles to an Army school to witness the graduating exercises.
      on the way he stopped at Gettysburg and got a new birth of Army enthusiasm. Whenever an Army man gets low in his spirits he goes to Gettysburg to see where Marse Robert and Gen. Meade locked horns for three days in a deadfall and Pickett charged for 1 mile on an open field under the most galling and devastating fire.
      Nothing is more typical of Gen. Ireland's whole miliary career than this incident. He did not have to go to that graduation, but duty has been his watchword all his life, and he felt sure that it was his duty to go. Many another Army man would never have gone to church to say his prayers before starting, but not this Army man. He learned his medicine and his religion at the same fireside from a country doctor, who belonged to the old school.
      In these last closing days in the Surgeon General's office, Gen. Ireland has made a tour of the country to see that everything was all right in his department before taking leave of it. Of course, he did not visit all of the Army posts and Army hospitals, but he visited some of them. His chief purpose in making this trip was to locate the Army narcotic farms, where drugs addicts in the Army will be sent for treatment. He could have passed that job, too, on to a subordinate, but some how he has never run his own job by proxy. He does not and never has bothered himself a great deal about details. Those are turned over to his subordinates, and woe to the one who neglected them. He asked for results, and he got them.
      On this locating trip he came near losing his life in an automobile accident. The car in which he was riding over the Kansas plains turned over and he was pinned under it. Fortunately, it had a steel frame and he escaped with only slight injuries. This accident was the climax of a long series of encounters with death in all parts of the world, from every one of which he escaped as in this instance with only a scratch or two.
      When he closed his desk yesterday, Gen. Ireland had served longer than any surgeon general ever did. The Army regulation say that a man can not stay longer than four years in any one post, and in the jobs in Washington they must leave, after a four-year tour, and spend two years wit the troops—unless the President orders otherwise. This clause kept Gen. Ireland in Washington on his last tour 13 years.
      Four Presidents signed his commission—Wilson, Harding, Coolidge and Hoover. In every instance the office came to him unsought. When first appointed he was chief surgeon of Gen. Pershing's Army, and he rather rebelled against coming back to America. It was in the autumn of 1918. The end of the war was not in sight. Secretary Baker Cabled Gen. Ireland to report to Washington to assume the duties of surgeon general

Recommended by Pershing

      Taking the telegram to Gen. Pershing, he expressed his mind about the world in general and the War Department in particular, and wound up by saying: "Gen. Pershing, I do not want to leave France. I want to see this thing through." And Gen. Pershing said;" Pack your grip, Ireland, for you are going back, my son. This d--n thing will be over in a month." It was on his recommendation that Ireland was made surgeon general, and that his nomination was made on the unanimous indorsement of the Medical Corps, some of whom were older in the service than Gen. Ireland and by right of seniority had a claim on the position.
      If you want to see six get of man rise into 16 feet of wrath and then town higher than the Washington Monument just say something to Gen Ireland that is the least bit critical of Gen. Pershing. He it was who originated the term of affection, "Uncle Johnny," by which Gen. Pershing is now known throughout the Army.
      That Surely is a fine trait. it had an old Scotch grandmother who was built that way. You risked your life when you criticize any of her kin, and if you wished to be banished from her presence just criticize anybody. One day one of her nephews framed upon her, and said, "Aunt Zilpha, what do you think of the devil?" Quick as a flash the old lay replied, "He's powerful industrious."


Has Friends in All Ranks

      Gen. Ireland carries his hero worship that far, too; and it is not all given to Gen. Pershing, either. he loves to tell that he sprang fro the blackest of black Republican stock; and yet when you turn his attention to Newton D. Baker, who is the whitest of white Democrats, you would think that Secretary Baker was handed down. He affection for the little Confederate lawyer—Newton's folks were all Virginians—is little less than he holds for "Old Martin" Ireland, his father, and Gen. Pershing.
      I would not restrict his affection to three men, for, if you believe old army doctors, like Col. Truby, so long Gen. Ireland's aid, and Col. Percy Ashburn, the librarian of the Surgeon General's Library of the Army Medical Corps, "the old man" has as many friends amount he enlisted men as he has amount the bigwigs.
      One day I sat in Col. Truby's office and watched the folks troup into the surgeon general's private tent. He can meet more men and transact more business and attended to telephone calls and ask more questions and give more advise in any given hour than any man I ever knew. His tent flaps were never closed; every one who went in received a hearty hail, and very one who came out, even if denied what he want in for came out smiling. This is what you call the Clara Bow stuff. He has it on Clara. Her's is just personality, his is personality plus.



Assails Movie War Types

      And this reminds me of his idiosyncrasies. For a pleasant spoken, agreeable mannered man, he has lot of them, and they stick out like thorns on a bramble bush. He never goes to see a professional movie about the army, nor a war drama. One day knowing this, I summoned courage to ask him why.
      "This Army is composed of gentlemen," he said. "There may be some bullies, and roughnecks in it, but they are not as numerous as in other professions. My top servant in the Philippines was a gentleman. One day I dais to my wife: "That boy lies better than we do." He's a captain in the Army now. We educate our officers and soldiers to be gentlemen."
      By now his bulging gray eyes were burning black and he was on his feet dramatizing his story with fury and energy.
      "Did you ever see an Army officer on the stage who was not a big bully, always cussing out somebody and swaggering around like a damn fool? I never did. I have know few such men in the Army, but most of the Army men are gentlemen, That's why I don't go to see war dramas.:
      You will have to read this story understandingly, for it is terribly garbled and censored and expurgated. It is impossible to give you an idea of how well Gen. Ireland acted the part of this reprehensible brute of an Army officer, what words he used to trick out his character with, and how beautifully he filled out the figures as he drew it, strut and language and all.



Is Tender Hearted and Sentimental

      With it all he is a very tender hearted and sentimental gentleman. On the 24th day of this month he picked up the telephone and called Maj. Parker West, assistant superintendent of the Soldier Home. Maj. West almost jumped out of this chair, the bell range with such sharp, staccato notes.
"Hello, Parker: This is Ireland, Yes thank you. I called to say that it is a long time since May 24, 1891. Oh, yea. A great deal of water has run under the bridge since then, Thank you, oldman. Bully for you. See you when I get back from Europe."
      All of this means that 40 years ago Maj. Parker West, then a young lieutenant at Jefferson Barracks, St. Louis, took under his wing Assist. Surg. M. W. Ireland who had just joined the Army, and was nice to him.
      In those days Maj. West was a bachelor. A native of New Orelands, used to the best food there is, he had a woman cook, who could convert the contents of the French Market into a feast that Lucullus would have forsake paganism for. When young Ireland turned up at the barracks young West took him in hand and said, "You will mess with me.: And he did. Parker West went down into his cellar and like a true Creole, brought up a bottle of rare old wine, covered with cobwebs. His cook got up a menu much as only served in New Orleans to president of Central American and Confederate Generations. Like on of Mme. Beagus famous 11 o'clock breakfasts, it has eleven courses and seven of them were meats and other four drink, vegetables and breads, a different vegetable and a different bread with each course, are not counted. And then Parker west waved Merritte Ireland to the seat of honor at the head of the table.



Known by Army as Teetotaler

      My young Hoosier friend had never even smelled wine much less drank it. No brew stronger than butter-milk or pot "likker" had ever soiled his unkissed lips. One meat at a meal was the rule at his house. So as he surveyed this splendid repast, he signed and thought of home.
      When his platter had been well served, Parker West signalled to the servant to licker his guest first. It was an embarrassing moment for the young country doctor, but he rose grandly to it.
      "west," said he, "I am just a country boy, and am not used to all this fine food. My old father brought me up to to drink wine or strong drink. If it is all right with you, I just won't take any. I am embarrassed to death to tell you this, but—"
      Take it away," West ordered the servant. "You are entirely right, Ireland. I can get on without it, too."
      Whenever you can beat a Creole at politeness you have to get up early in the morning. As long as those two messed together not a bottle of wine was opened and never afterward did Dr. Ireland have to refuse it. The Army knew he was a teetotaler, but not a fool one. Knowing Creoles as I do, having wed one, I will say that it was quite a deprivation for Parker West to give up his wine.



Befriended Drinkers in Service

      Did abstinence from vinous, malt and spiritous liquors stand in the way of the surgeon's career? A fair question, to be sure. As far as I can learn it has rather forwarded it. he early became known as the friend of all the drunks in the Army, and th men he has rescued from the grave and set on their feet would fill a large room. Some of them now hold high rank in the Army. he never forsook one of them; and he often had to pleas for some of those who looked hopeless, to keep them from being cashiered. If this chapter in his life could be written, it would be one of the brightest lessons in humanity the world known anything about.
      There is another side to his life that may strike some as strange. he is quite sternly religious, but he is no pacifist. Having seen service in two wars, he knows what war is. I heard him say in a public address in our church some time ago: "I never want to see another war.: but feeling this sway, he also is all for the Army , and nothing raises his gorge quite so quickly as for so-called religious people to be passing antiwar resolutions.



Quit Church Because of Pacifism.

      he quite cold the church of his ancestors, the church in which he grew up from infancy, the church in which he married and to which his wife belongs, because, right after the war, it passed a pacifist resolution. Not one time since has he darkened its doors. And he never will. He know that as long as human nature is as it is that will come, and that nothing as for it to get into a pacifist humor.
      Walter Reed Hospital, or the Army medical Center, is the apple of his eye. He did not originate it. The idea belongs to Lieut. Col. W. C. Borden, retired, now dean of George Washington University medical School. He thought it out, the idea of a general hospital here in Washington which was to be the Army Medical Center. Gen Ireland took up the idea and has forwarded it almost to completion. But for the trade slump, all of the money would be available for completing the plant. Two new buildings are yet to be erected, one to house the Army Medical Museum, and the other the Surgeon General's library.
      In securing the great plant and the Army Medical College, Gen. Ireland's personality had to stand the acid test. First he went to see Secretary Baker.



Sold Idea to Baker

      "I never got anything for the Army without going and sitting down and looking the man square in the face as I talked with him," he once told me. So it was with Mr. Baker.
"I want three million dollars for an Army Medical School," he blurts out to the Secretary of War.
      "What do you need with an Army Medical school?" asked the skeptical official. "Don't you recruit your medical corps from Medical graduates or from Private practice?"
      "Now Mr. Baker, you don't see the thing at all. You lawyers are dealing with precedents. You get your knowledges from books. We have no precedents. Human beings, sick human beings, are our books. When we take a doctor into the medical corps his training has just begun, and it never ends until he dies or retires."
It took Gen. Ireland about fifteen minute to "sell" his idea to the Secretary, and in just that short time the matter was approved, so far as to get a place in the War Department's estimates and in the Secretary's report to the President. Getting the money was another thing. Gen. Lord was chief of the budget. He was parboiled, hardboiled and then steel encased. Many a bureau chief winked in his sleeve when Ireland went chasing after his three millions.



Gentlemen's Agreement for Funds

      In the old Army he had known Gen. Lord well. Each man had the utmost confidence in the integrity of the other. Both are gentlemen. Neither had every had a difference with the other. There was really a bond of affection, of which I know nothing, between them.
When Gen. Ireland told Gen. Lord what he wanted and why he wanted it, it was agreed to on the dot. Fist he was to get $600,000. Then $850,000. "It may cost $2,000,000 and it may cost three," Ireland told him. "A gentlemen's agreement, then; if it cost only two, you get the other million back. If it costs three, I get all of it.: It will take the full three million to complete the unit, and then the Army will have one of the great heath clinics in the world.
      This medical center consists of a general hospital of 1,000 beds; an Army Medical School to which every young doctor entering the corps must go for this training in Army medicine before he is sent with the troops , and at which the older members of the oorps, as often as they can, are sent for post-graduate work; a laboratory where all the Army vaccines and serums are manufactured; a research laboratory where all sorts of research work is constantly going on; a school for nurses where the most rigid training is given; and the surgeon general's library; he largest and most complete in the world, but which Congress is but niggardly supporting in appropriations for buying books; and the Army Medical Museum with its rare exhibits.

Known as Capable Administrator

      Every Sunday for 13 years when Gen. Ireland has been in Washington he has visited Walter Reed Hospital; and often two and three times a week. he has had his finger on other parts of his job, the general and post hospitals wherever there are Army doctors there his eye is turned and his mind at work. He often told me that he never did any work. "I let my little boys do all the work,: said he. But let one of them fall down on his work and the surgeon general was on him like a children on a June bug.
      As an administer he had probably had no equal in the history of the corps; and that is why he has served such a long tour of duty in the Surgeon General's Office. There were no pressing medical problems that called for a different order of talent. had there been a Gorgas or a Sternberg might have gotten the job, for Gen. Ireland is not a student, and never has been. He kept up with his medicine, but in late year executive duties have taken all his time.
      One other item will show how far reaching his sweep of thought is. There was no real history of the Medical Corps, so he looked all through the corps, weighting each man's capacity well,, and found the ideal man to write it—Col. Percy S. Ashburn, a brilliant medical man, a devoted student of history and a writer who has the scientific approach to both history and medicine. He he brought to Washington, him he mad librarian of the Surgeon Generals' Library, and to him he gave over the task of writing the history of the corps which both honored. No happier selection could have been made, I only hope that Col. Ashburn will be taken here and encouraged to expand his work to incorporate more Army and more social history with a complete history of the corps. it is a remarkably interesting subject.

Truby Is Ideal Secretary

      Like all men, Gen. Ireland (Gen. Pershing said of him, "Ireland is a great man,") has surrounded himself with a few trusted men who probably know him better than he knows himself; know his inmost thoughts, and keep one jump ahead of him. Among them is Col. Truby, his long-time aid who has been associated with him intimately for 25 years. When Gen. Ireland gets to heaven and finds Col. Truby missing (if he does) it will be a lonely place for him. And I dare say that Col. Truby has made a secret agreement with the general that both shall die at the same moment and take the same train for Joran's stormy bank.
      If ever there was a model secretary it is this quiet, fine, pipe smoking, philosophic old doctor. He has all the poise allotted to one human being. Gen. Ireland is a bundle of energy, lightning quick in his decisions and bustling in his manner. Col. Truby is his direct antithesis.
      But the general would never have been what he is but from Mrs. Ireland. It is one of those rare matings that you read about in story books. She has shared his hardships in the untamed West and in the Philippines, and she has joined heartily in his official and social success in Washington. this latter is by 90 per cent the hardest part of any man's life there. No public official here has any family life; his social obligations eat up his savings and take all of his salary. But they all love it, just the same. The Irelands have been a big social success. They are sough after. They both good company.
      Now after forty years in the Army they have called it a day and are leaving this week for their first honeymoon the happiest pair of lovers to cross the ocean this summer. Gen. Ireland bought a small car and they will leave the ferry at Quenstown and then just wonder at will all over Europe until Christmas, when they will be back in Washington, looking for quiet quarters and resolved to have a home at least, and to play whist and read over their old love letters.

1822 History of Whitley county, Indiana
Pages 244-245:

     JAMES S. COLLINS is one of a family of eleven children, and was born in Wayne County, Ind., December 19, 1819. His parents, John and Jane Collins, were natives respectively of Virginia and Kentucky, were married in the latter State and emigrated to the Territory of Indiana in 1806, Mr. Collins finding the air of freedom more congenial to his strong anti-slavery principles. They settled four miles south of where Richmond now stands, and remained until 1836, when they removed to Whitley County, locating one-half mile west of the present site of South Whitley, remaining there until 1846, when they removed to Columbia City, where they afterward died. James S. Collins remained with his parents, assisting them in pioneer labors, until the spring of 1844, when he went to Fort Wayne, and began the study of law with L. P. Ferry, an attorney of that city. He remained there until Mr. Ferry's death, when he came to Columbia City, and began the practice of his chosen profession. He was admitted to the bar at the fall term of Whitley County Circuit Court in 1844, and has since devoted his time to practice, with the exception of three years, in which he was actively employed in the construction of the Eel River Railroad, of which he was President. Mr. Collins was married, in 1849, at Richmond, Ind., to Eliza J. Fleming, and a family of six children was the result of this union-Jane H., Reginald H., Dorothy, Howard, Sophia Du P. and William James, all living except Howard, who died at the age of six years. Mr. Collins was formerly a Whig in politics, but is now Republican-was elected to the State Legislature in 1860, and served in the regular and special sessions of 1861. 

     RICHARD COLLINS was born in Wayne County, Ind., May 8, 1815, and is a son of John and Jane (Holman) Collins. His early life was spent in Wayne County, where he received all the advantages the schools of that early day had to offer. He came to Whitley County with his parents, September 25, 1836, locating in Cleveland Township, which has since been his home. He was married, May 8, 1844, to Mary Rhodes, who became the mother of two children-Walter S. and Mary E., both deceased-the mother dying August, 1847. In the month of April, 1850, Mr. Collins married his present wife, Catherine Hildebrand, who is the mother of eight children, but four surviving. At the time of his marriage, Mr. Collins was County Clerk as well as Recorder, and served as such until November, 1855. He was the first Sheriff elected in Whitley County; in addition to these, he has filled various local offices of honor and trust. He was engaged in milling and merchandising in Columbia City for some time, until recently he changed his occupation for that of a lumber dealer, which business he still follows. He is one of the first and most highly honored citizens of Whitley County; he is a Republican, but previous to the organization of that party was identified with the Whigs. He is a man possessing the confidence of all who know him.

Terre Haute Tribune Star, Readers' Forum: July 16, 2006
Another successful ‘Tire Amnesty Day’

    On June 3, 2006, another Vigo County Health Department “Tire Amnesty Day” was successfully held thanks to volunteers from Vigo County, Terre Haute city government, Purdue Extension and private citizens. The volunteers and workers donated time and energy to make the program a success by loading 9,500 to 10,000 old and abandoned tires from trucks, cars and trailers brought to the Vigo County Fairgrounds, thereby eliminating a fertile breeding ground for mosquitoes that may have the potential for carrying the West Nile Virus, encephalitis and other vector-borne diseases.
    Tire Amnesty Day is designed to enhance programs already in place such as fogging the city and the county, larviciding the storm drains along with any stagnant water in the city and the county and the newly signed “Tire Storage Ordinance”.
    All of the aforementioned programs and the continuing education of the public in preventing stagnant water on their own property will help keep the citizens of Vigo County from falling victim to the sickness and disease these mosquitoes may carry.
    We would like to extend our sincere “thank you” to all the volunteers from the Terre Haute City Environmental Code Enforcement Division, Marty Dooley, Rance Barnby, Tim Manley and Gene Frances and Jody Hamblin.
    Also, thanks to Steve Reimschusel of the Terre Haute Parks Department, Vigo County Community Corrections, the general public that donated their time, Jessie Grayless, Jeremy Kiger, Madeline Grayless, Christopher Grayless, Troy Bowden, Don Taylor, Matt Bales, Ed Malooley, Dan and Penny Jackson, Christopher Williams, Ron Alvis, Artie Jackson and James Schepper.
    The Health Department workers included Dr. Enrico Garcia, Joni Foulkes, Richard Hoffman, Janet Robinson, Vicky Clark, Jeri Taylor, Teresa Jackson, Marci Deboy, Mandy Bales, Steve Thompson, Trella Schepper (Moser), Connie Malooley, Terri Manning, Sheran Allee, Nan Engle, Diana Bowden, L. Mike Grayless, Tony Grayless, Quint Grayless, Warren Sweitzer, Robert Rea and Bettye Alvis.
    Other than a few minor mishaps, the day was successful. The looks of gratification on the faces of the volunteers for a job well done and the knowledge they had done a service to the community is hard to describe. The true volunteerism and the Vigo County Fair Board and staff for the use of the facility truthfully made “Tire Amnesty Day” once again a success.

'You don't let yourself think about it'
Mother raising young children of murdered daughter

By KIMBERLY HEFLING

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. - Paula Grayless tosses and turns, exhausted from caring for her murdered daughter's baby and toddler, yet unable to sleep.
She spends the dark hours of the night talking aloud to a daughter who will never answer. One minute, she asks for advice on raising the girls. The next, she is haunted by images of the crime.
    "Sometimes it's hard for me to believe she's not here any more," Grayless said.
    With baby Rylee Ann Grayless in her arms and 1-year-old Ryann Renee Crowell bobbing up and down at her feet, Grayless has little time to grieve. The daylight hours are full of bottles, diapers and doctor appointments.
    At her home in Terre Haute, Ind., Paula Grayless, right, pauses to look at a portrait of her daughter, Melinda, as Paula's mother, Sharon Tyler, left, looks on. Grayless is holding her granddaughter, Rylee Ann Grayless.
    The girls' mother, Melinda Grayless, was killed in a motel parking lot in Oklahoma City three days after giving birth to Rylee. Nathan Crowell, the girls' father, is accused of stabbing her to death with a two-foot sword, a present from Melinda.
    Grayless last saw 20-year-old Melinda just before Thanksgiving. Then nine months pregnant, she arrived from Amarillo with Ryann and Crowell, 22, her boyfriend of three years.
    But they abruptly left town a day after a bank was robbed, claiming Crowell needed to visit a sick relative in Oklahoma.
    A month later, Melinda was dead. A confused Crowell, yelling for a priest or a minister, was picked up on the Oklahoma City University campus, said Capt. LaNell White of the Oklahoma City Police Department.
    He was charged with murder and identified by police in Indiana as a chief suspect in the Terre Haute bank robbery.
    The girls were found alone in the motel room, police said, with methamphetamine nearby.
    Melinda and Nathan arrived in Terre Haute planning to stay a while. Their furniture was in storage in Amarillo, and their belongings were loaded in a brown 1980 Ford Pinto.
    Grayless was pleased, glad to have her outgoing daughter at home. Melinda, a 5-foot-11 former Tascosa High School basketball player nicknamed "Red," was a good mother who read to Ryann every day, Grayless said.
    Melinda worked full-time at Paradise Too restaurant and sometimes expressed frustration that Crowell didn't work. But Crowell did help out. "He cleaned house and you couldn't find a better baby-sitter," Grayless said.
    She said the couple were having financial problems, but their arguments didn't seem to be out of the ordinary.
    "I really thought Nathan was a pretty sweet guy," Grayless said.
    With tattoos and an eyebrow ring, Crowell looked intimidating, "but once you talked to him, he seemed like a nice guy," said Gennifer Warren, a former neighbor in Amarillo.
    His court-appointed attorney, Cindy Tedder, describes him as young-looking for his age and slender with "luminescent eyes."
    After Melinda's death, Grayless learned Crowell had a history of minor drug- and alcohol-related and weapons possession arrests in Amarillo.
    Looking back to Nov. 17, Grayless now said she can't believe she didn't suspect Crowell in the bank robbery. The robber shot into the ceiling before fleeing with $4,500.
    Crowell had left the house that day to get a gallon of milk. When he hadn't returned for several hours, Melinda said he'd gone to St. Louis. The next morning, the couple packed up the Ford Pinto and headed west.
    Grayless pleaded with her daughter to stay until the baby was born, but Melinda said she needed to stay with the father of her children.
    She promised to return for Thanksgiving.
    A few days later, Melinda called to say Rylee had been born healthy in an Oklahoma City hospital.
    Two days after being released from the hospital, Melinda was dead, repeatedly stabbed at 2:30 a.m. in a Motel 6 parking lot. The sword was found next to her body.
    Crowell, who graduated from Randall High School, was raised by his two sets of grandparents in Oklahoma City and Amarillo, said Tedder, his lawyer. She's not sure what happened to his parents.
    His childhood "was pretty horrible for what little I know," Tedder said.
    Crowell was friendly, but hot-tempered, said Warren, who attended Sam Houston Middle School with Melinda. The two lost touch for years until by coincidence she and her boyfriend, Eric Gillock, ending up living next door to the couple in Amarillo.
    The couple sometimes seemed lovey-dovey, but other times, they argued so loudly they woke their neighbors.
    "There was a lot of yelling and cursing. They seemed like they weren't real happy with each other. I always wondered why they would stay together with all the tension all the time," Warren said. "Other times, they were like the happiest, most loving couple."
    Charged with first-degree murder, Crowell is being held without bail in an Oklahoma City jail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled Feb. 2 in Oklahoma County District Court.
    This will likely be a death penalty case, Tedder, said.
    "I think he's a frightened, sweet young man," Tedder said.
    When the call came, Grayless, her mother and a friend piled in a car and drove to Oklahoma City. At a hearing, Grayless obtained temporary custody of her two granddaughters.
    "I wasn't ready for it, but I had to get ready for it," said Grayless, who is disabled and already caring for her longtime companion, Harold Jones, who is dying from cancer.
    Sharon Tyler, 63, Grayless' mother, helps around the modest house. They try not to dwell on the crime.
    "It's sort of like you don't let yourself think about it," said Tyler, one in a chain of cigarettes dangling from her mouth.
    "But when you do go to bed, you do think about it," Grayless adds.
    Grayless has sought counseling to help her deal with her daughter's death. She was relieved when a counselor told her the sleepless nights were part of the grieving process.
    "I don't understand why this happened and I know I never will," Grayless said.
    She dreads the day she'll have to tell the girls about how their mother died, but it won't stop her from seeking permanent custody.
    "They've been a part of Melinda, so they'll have to be a part of us," Grayless said.

9 Months After Twister, Church Rebuilt in Terre Haute
Associated Press

TERRE HAUTE – A 150-year-old church severely damaged by a tornado this year has been rebuilt, with services again scheduled to be held in the sanctuary.

Members of Union Christian Church had been worshipping in a building next door since a rare February tornado tore the roof off the sanctuary and heaved pieces across Indiana 46.

“People haven’t lost the vision of what they’re doing,” the Rev. Mark Grayless said. “They’re not here because of the building, it’s because of the faith.”

A section of the church built in the 1850s and the 1950s survived the Feb. 16 tornado, but the section renovated in the late 1970s was destroyed, church officials said. The church moved from land that is now part of the airport to its current spot in the mid-1950s.

The storm blew out the doors, but the stained-glass windows survived, Grayless said. The cross was also saved and reused.

A new second floor has dividers that can make up to eight rooms, which the church intends to use as classrooms or conference areas. Emergency exits and fire alarms were added, and the disability access was brought up to 2006 codes, Grayless said.

A cold front spawned thunderstorms that produced the tornado and then dumped temperatures from the springlike to the frigid. The National Weather Service concluded an F1 tornado with winds of about 100 mph caused the damage to the church.

The storm hit just 15 minutes after a youth group and others left the building, but there were no injuries.

The funnel cloud, nearly 100 yards wide, stayed on the ground for about two miles on Terre Haute’s east side, ripping through the church and the airport. The same front generated hurricane-force winds of 75 mph that damaged a home and several outbuildings south of Vincennes.

Dave Rector, chairman of the church board, said weddings and baptisms had to be held at other churches while the church was rebuilt. Otherwise, it wasn’t hard to manage during the reconstruction.

“I was impressed with the attendance,” he said.

The Fresno Bee, March 3, 2007

Calling all kin: The search for a deputy's family
Modern posse tries to find relatives of man killed in 1907.

By Louis Galvan / The Fresno Bee

After Fresno County sheriff's deputy Joe D. Price was found dead, stabbed in the neck in the foothills east of Fresno in March 1907, posses of officers and mountaineers searched for the killer for more than a month.

He got away.

A century later, investigators are struggling with a new search -- this time for any relatives of Price, believed to be the first Fresno County deputy killed in the line of duty.

On March 13, the 100th anniversary of Price's death, the department will hold a graveside memorial service and give a flag to Price's relatives -- if they can find any.

For months, department historians deputy Kevin FitzGerald and retired deputy Scott Morrison have been digging through old files, newspapers and other sources. Their search has produced leads, but so far none has panned out.

"It hasn't been easy," FitzGerald said.

Investigators hope the public can help.

Price had been with the Sheriff's Department for only two months when he was murdered on his 32nd birthday by a man suspected of stealing a horse and buggy.

At the time, the Fresno Morning Republican newspaper reported that Price was survived by his mother and a sister, Maud Price, a schoolteacher; a brother, John V. Price, who was living in Gilroy; and cousins B.J. Scott, Harry Scott and D.S. Scott, all of Gilroy.

About a month ago, FitzGerald recruited Melissa Scroggins, senior library assistant at Fresno's downtown Fresno County Public Library, to help.

"The biggest problem is that Deputy Price was not married and didn't have any children," Scroggins said Tuesday.

Working with documents provided by FitzGerald and checking the 1900 census report, newspaper articles, genealogy Web sites and other sources, Scroggins has developed several promising leads.

One of Price's brothers, Thomas S. Price, who died in 1897, had two daughters, Helen and Ethel.

In 1930, Price's mother died. Her obituaries listed her two grandchildren, Helen Thompson and Ethel Collier, as survivors, with Thompson living in Fresno and Collier living in Bakersfield. Thompson had two sons, Reynold Thompson of Fresno, who died in 1986, and Robert Thompson of Yountville in Napa County, who died in 1988.

Scroggins said she could not find any children for Reynold Thompson, but that based on a records search, she believes Robert Thompson might have had a son and five daughters. They might still be living in the state, either in Napa County or in the Santa Maria area, she said. So far, however, nobody has been able to establish contact with them.

"It's been a real challenge," Scroggins said. "It's like trying to put a huge picture puzzle together."

Ten Fresno County deputies are known to have died in the line of duty, officials said. The most recent was Joshua Clyde Lancaster, 27, who was killed May 29, 2003, when his unmarked vehicle was hit by a car being chased by Sanger police.

Sheriff's Capt. Rick Hill said it's possible Price was not the first deputy to die in the line of duty during the department's 150-year history, but research has failed to find any record of anyone before him.

According to a March 15, 1907, article in the Fresno Morning Republican, Price was born near Academy on March 13, 1875. His parents were J.M. Price and Lucy Scott Price.

J.M. Price, who died in 1905, was among the early rush of gold miners to California, settling in Amador County in 1853. He and Lucy Scott married in 1865. They lived in Stockton until they moved to the Fancher Creek area above Centerville in 1872.

Joe Price attended schools in the Centerville and Sanger areas and was the Sanger constable for four years before he became a sheriff's deputy on Jan. 7, 1907.

On March 3, 1907, Joseph W. Grayless, a local rancher, reported the theft of a buggy and a white horse, and Price was assigned to investigate. A week later, Price recovered the buggy in the Centerville area and developed information leading to a suspect: James Richardson, who was in his early 20s, was originally from Rayville, Mo., and had been working as a wood chopper.

On March 13, accompanied by Grayless, Price served a search warrant at a Squaw Valley location where Richardson was living with his sister and her husband in a tent.

Richardson pointed a revolver at Price and pulled the trigger five times, but the gun misfired.

With Grayless' help, Price took Richardson into custody. Price didn't have any handcuffs, so rope was used to bind the suspect.

On their way to Reedley in a buggy to book Richardson into jail, the group came across Grayless' horse. Grayless mounted the horse, and the group became separated, with Grayless on horseback and Price and Richardson in the buggy.

At some point, Price reportedly untied Richardson to allow him to eat. Either he failed to tie Richardson up again, or Richardson got loose.

John Rouse, a local rancher, found Price's body late in the day in the buggy at Dunnigan Gap, six miles north of the Kings River. A short time later, Grayless arrived at the scene.

A story in the Fresno Morning Republican reported that investigators found signs of a violent struggle on the buggy, with parts of the buggy broken.

Price's mouth was smashed. Two front teeth were knocked in.

"The pockets of his clothing were turned out, and his revolver and watch were taken," reported the Fresno Morning Republican.

FitzGerald said Richardson picked up food and clothing at his relatives' home, told them he had killed Price, and then left.

For more than a month, lawmen and volunteers from the mountain communities east of Fresno combed the area before conceding that Richardson had slipped away.

Investigators hope they will have more success tracking down Price's relatives.

The memorial service is planned for 12:30 p.m. March 13 in front of Price's tombstone at Mountain View Cemetery on West Belmont Avenue. It will include a gun salute, a flag ceremony and a few words by top sheriff's officials, including Sheriff Margaret Mims.

If any relatives are found, they will be presented with the flag. If not, it will be presented to Mims to be displayed in the department's Memorial Wall in honor of the department's fallen deputies.

"It would really be nice if relatives could be there," Hill said.

FRESNO DEPUTY SHERIFF
MURDERED BY PRISONER

———
Joseph Price Slain While
Bringing In an Alleged
Horse Thief

      FRESNO, March 13.—Deputy Sheriff Joseph Price was murdered this afternoon while brining to this city a man names Richardson, arrested for hose-stealing near the Squaw Valley Post Office. With Price was J. W. Grayless, whose righ had been stolen. It is feared that Grayless also was killed. The prisoner escaped and Sheriff Chittendan and a posse of six deputies are searching the mountains back of Kings River for him.
      The story of the murder was brought to Kigns River early in the evening by John Rouse, employed on Pearson's ranch. Rouse found Price's horse and buggy at Dunnigan Gap, about five miles from Kings River. In the buggy was the body of the deputy, with the throat cut.
      Price had procured a search warrant for Richardson, and, together with Grayless, had gone to Squaw Valley to make the arrest. he met Richardson on the Millwood road. The two exchanged shots and borh were wounded. Price finally succeeded in getting the outlaw into his buggy and started for Fresno, thirty miels diatant. Grayless was on horseback, some distance to the rear.
      How Price was killed is not yet known. The Sheriff's house is being constantly augmented by men from Sanger and Dinuba.
      Grayless has disappeared and no trace of him or his horse has been obtained.

Another Hero laid to Rest

The year 1907 saw three law enforcement officers in Fresno County killed in the line of duty. By an odd coincidence, the tragic death of one of these men took place on his thirty-second birthday and within six miles of the places of his birth
      On March 13, 1907, less than a month after the cold-blooded killing of Fresno police officer Harry S. Van Meter, Temperance Colony rancher J. W. Grayless and Deputy Sheriff Joseph D. Price, armed with a search warrant, headed into the foothills to find a woodcutter names James Richardson. Richardson was suspected of stealing a hose and buggy filled with groceries and a fur coat belonging to Grayless. Price located the buggy, but the hose and the buyy's contents were still missing. Price pulled his ring into the rang of George Fanabee, Richardson's brother-in-law, near Squaw Valley. Not only was Richardson there, but the contents of the buggy were there also. Price arrested Richardson, who pulled out a revolver and began shooting. The bullets missed and after a struggle, Richardson threw down the gun. Price tied his hands and made Richardson get into his buggy. Price got in, ordered the horses to state, and began the journey to Fresno with his prisoner. Grayless returned on horseback.
      Richardson began complaining of hunger. Price stopped at Will Ockenden's store at Squaw Valley, purchased food and untied Richardson so he could eat on the journey. Several hours later, rancher John Rouse came upon the buggy at Dunnigan's Gap. It contained the body of Joseph Price. It was evident that a bloody struggle had taken place. There was no sign of Richardson.
      The sheriff was notified. The alarm went out. The suspect was thought to have fled to Oat mountain. Five posses were formed. All the ranchers in the are were deputized. A massive manhunt tried to track down the killer. It was all in vain. Richardson as never found. The case was never solved.       The people of Fresno witnessed another tragic funeral for one of their own who was killed while trying to make their county a safer place. Deputy Sheriff Joseph D. Price's name was added to the ever growing list of the true heroes of our Valley.

Benton resident is facing meth posession charges
From Staff Reports
Published May 15, 2001 10:18 AM EDT

David Richard Grayless, 29, of Benton is being held without bond pending a hearing on drug charges, according to reports. An indictment for possession of bombs is also being sought.

Deputies from the Polk County Sheriff's Department allegedly conducted a traffic stop on Grayless and found methamphetamine in his vehicle, in addition to two bombs. The bombs appeared to be booby-trap detonation devices, which have increased in use to guard meth labs.

"We are going to pick up this case and go through the indictment process," said Wendell Frost, agent with the Tennessee Alcohol Tobacco & Firearms division. He also said that one of the devices resembled a pipe bomb.

Grayless is currently charged with possession of methamphetamine for resale.

"Incident at Duck River:
The Impact of Indian Depredations
in the Public Memory of Early Tennessee."
by
Tom Kanon
Tennessee State Library and Archives

          What exactly happened in western Tennessee in mid-May of 1812 to ignite the passions of the frontier? The bare facts of the case, as represented by the newspapers, are these: a group of five Indians came to the home of a Humphreys County resident, Jesse Manley, where they murdered and scalped seven individuals, five of whom were children, and took Martha Crawley prisoner. The details of the incident, as first reported by the Tennessee Herald, contain sensationalisms (not to mention inconsistencies) designed to elicit public wrath. Describing the “unequalled scene of hellish barbarity,” the newspaper provided grisly scenes of “Indian cruelty and barbarity.” After the Indians shot and scalped a young man of the neighborhood, asked by the absent Jesse Manley and John Crowley to watch over their families, the marauding Indians spotted one of the Manly children outside the house, “whom they tore to pieces with their dogs and scalped.” The harrowing account continued:
          With savage fury they now forced the door, and commenced a scene of still greater barbarity. They snatched Mrs. Manly’s child, only eight days old, from her, scalped it and threw it into the fire place, yelling at a horrid rate. An indiscriminate butchery of the children now took place before their mother; five children were scalped and murdered, they keeping Mrs. Manly alive as the last victim of their cruelty. After shooting her, they scalped her, and committed unheard of cruelties on her body. They then left the house, taking Mrs. Crawley along as prisoner.
          Although it is never mentioned, one presumes this tale was related by Mrs. Manley, who miraculously survived the ordeal and was found four hours later “in her perfect senses.” Another survivor was one of Mrs. Crawley‘s children (age unknown) who was placed beneath the cabin floor before the attackers broke into the dwelling.[3]
          Further details of the murders were added in the ensuing weeks. For instance, Mrs. Manley reportedly “was shot in the knee and shot through the jaws, a little below the ears, was scalped, and arrows left in her — but was not dead.” Mrs. Manley testified her nine-day-old baby was dashed against the wall by the intruders (she does not mention the baby being scalped and thrown into the fireplace, as reported by the Tennessee Herald) and that her young son, in trying to run away, “was overtaken by the Indian dogs, that they danced around him and then killed him, and killed the rest of her family.” Pieces of the story were still being assembled even twenty years later. A claim made for the relief of Jesse Manley in 1834 reveals the petitioner and John Crawley left home to obtain some corn. Upon their return on the twelfth of May, Manley “found his wife shot by the Indians through the knee, which was broke to pieces, a ball had passed through one her ears, and one of her eyes burnt out with the powder, her head was scalped, and she was otherwise indecently and cruelly mutilated, and three of his children were killed.” Manley’s wife never recovered from her wounds, as indicated by a witness of the petitioner, John Read, who stated he saw Mrs. Manley “upon her death bed” shortly after the occurrence.[4]
          There was one more witness to the atrocity -- Martha Crawley. Fortunately, she gave a deposition regarding the killings, her abduction, and eventual escape. Taken in early August 1812, by the justices of the peace for Humphreys County, her testimony as to what happened should have provided the most accurate account possible. Curiously, the intention of the deposition was to arrive at the truth “concer[n]ing the treatment she received while a prisoner with the Indians.”[5] Only a brief mention of the killings is offered, perhaps indicating an acceptance of the “facts” as they were then known. The propaganda effect from the report of the murders had run its course by August, and, now, Crawley’s captivity story was of greater value to those promoting a war against the Creeks.[6]
          The settlement of Humphreys County reveals quite a bit about Indian-white and Tennessee-U.S. relations. If Tennessee was the southwestern frontier of the United States in 1812, then Humphreys County was the frontier of that “frontier.” Established by the Tennessee General Assembly in 1809, Humphreys County ran along the eastern border of the Tennessee River, then the western boundary of the state (the land west of the river being Indian territory). At the time, the county ran down to what is now the Tennessee/Alabama state line. Lying in a region claimed, in particular, by the Chickasaws (known as the “traditional guardians” of the area), settlement was scant into the early years of the nineteenth century. Treaties with the Chickasaws in 1805 and 1806 opened the region to white settlement. While no Indian towns existed in the region, the presence of Indian hunting camps meant the potential threat of violent encounters between Indians and whites. Indeed, the white population remained sparse due to frequent border attacks, which occurred as late as 1808.

[3] The incident, as it appeared in the Tennessee Herald, was reprinted in many newspapers across the country. Since no original copies of the Tennessee Herald exist, the date of the issue containing the article is unknown. The quoted extracts were taken from the 13 June 1812 edition of the Niles Weekly Register (Baltimore), II: 256. An affidavit from a Williamson County resident, who was in the vicinity of the Duck River, states he heard reports of the crime from those claiming to have gotten the story from Mrs. Manley. See Nashville Clarion, 23 May 1812. A Captain John Crawley is listed on an 1812 tax list for Humphreys County – see Early Tax Lists (microfilm), Tennessee State Library and Archives [TSLA] (Nashville).

[4] Clarion, 23 May 1812; Petition of Jesse Manley to Committee of Claims, 9 April 1834, House of Representatives Report 402, 9 April 1834, 23rd Congress, 1st Session, Series 262.

[5] A copy of Martha Crawley’s deposition, dated 11 August 1812, can be found in the Papers of Andrew Jackson (Library of Congress) -- a published version, the one used in subsequent quotes in this paper, can be found in John Spencer Bassett, ed., Correspondence of Andrew Jackson, Volume I (Washington, DC: Carnegie Institution of Washington, 1926), 225-226n1.

[6] In a 26 June 1812 letter from a resident of St. Stephens (Mississippi Territory), William Henry to John J. Henry of Williamson County (TN), Henry claims to have visited Martha Crawley, who by then had escaped her Creek captors. According to Henry, Crawley provided him with some conflicting details of the incident, e.g., the murders took place at her (Crawley’s) house, not Manley’s, and there were eleven attacking Indians, not five as reported. The letter was included in a communication from Tennessee Governor Willie Blount to Secretary of War William Eustis, dated 26 July 1812. The letter can be found in Walter Lowrie and Matthew St. Clair Clarke, eds., Documents, Legislative and Executive, of the Congress of the United States - American State Papers, Indian Affairs, 2 vols. (Washington, DC: Gales and Seaton, 1832), I: 814. That there should be conflicting reports of this type of incident, especially over time, is not unusual. For example, see “The Rescue of Jane Stoops from the Indians: Three Accounts of Samuel Brady’s Rescue of Jane Stoops, 1780” in Emily Foster, ed., The Ohio Frontier: An Anthology of Early Writings (Lexington: University Press of Kentucky, 1996), 53-57.


HISTORY OF TENNESSEE - HUMPHREYS COUNTY
GOODSPEED PUBLISHING CO. (NASHVILLE) 1886.

          From the first days of the settlement up to the year 1812 the Indians were a source of great annoyance and trouble to the whites, and raids were made by hostile savages upon the settlements frequently, when the houses of the settlers were burned and their stock run off. In not a few instances the lives of the settlers were sacrificed in defending their families and property. The Indians had several large villages and encampments in the county, the leading ones being on Tennessee River, about two miles below Duck, at Hurricane Rock Hill, and on the hills around Paint Rock, both of the latter being on Duck River. Some time between 1810 and 1815 the Indians were moved across Tennessee River, that stream being made the eastern boundary of their nation, and during their removal many depredations were committed. The settlers had a blockhouse, or fort, at Reynoldsburg, but the same could not be taken advantage of by all, as many lived some distance therefrom. Of this number was a farmer, named Johnson, who lived on the banks of the Tennessee River. One morning along in 1814 his house was attacked by a roving band of Indians, and Johnson was killed and his house set fire to. One of Johnson's children was also killed, and a Mrs. Manley, who was at the house at the time, was seriously wounded in the knee, and died afterward from the effects of the wound and fright she received. Mrs. Crauley, the wife of a neighboring farmer, was also at Johnson's house at the time, and was taken captive by the Indians and carried away. She afterward made her escape, and after several days spent in wandering and hiding in the forests. succeeded in reaching the settlement, and was returned to her home again. 0ne day she was so closely pursued by the savages that she crawled into a hollow log and lay there, shaking with fear, while her pursuers passed and repassed over the log. The Indians also killed Bill Martin about that time. Martin was a hunter and trapper, and spent as much as a week and sometimes two away from his family. He had gone down the river on one of his expeditions and was ambushed and killed. The Indians who murdered the trapper were about six in number, and after robbing the body of the dead trapper of gun, ammunition, etc., the party proceeded in their canoe up Big Richland Creek, where they were surprised and killed by a posse of settlers, headed by the brother of the murdered man. The Indians had been betrayed by having in their possession the rifle of their victim.

Lee Grayless

November 10, 1907 - April 13, 2009

      Funeral services for Lee Grayless are 11 a.m. Saturday, April 18, 2009, at First Baptist Church of Richmond, 502 South Fifth St. in Richmond with the Rev. Dr. John Lockhart officiating.  Burial follows at Morton Cemetery in Richmond.  Visitation is 5 p.m. to 8 p.m Friday, April 17, 2009 at First Baptist Church Richmond. Lee Grayless (Nov. 10, 1907 - April 13, 2009), after living and serving his Creator and Lord, his family, and his friends and fellowmen in our community for 101 fruitful years has passed from this life to the next.  His was a lifetime of faith lived in everyday community service, respect for one's fellowman and commitment to being the best you can be in the place you are given. We who remain can recall our many thankful memories as we go about our daily lives enjoying the myriad of community service and civic entities in which Lee gave his talents in initiation and organization, growth and/or leadership capacities.  He spent 82 plus years in Richmond earning his living, raising his family and 'giving back'.  The Morton Masonic Lodge saw Lee achieve his 75-year pin of service, the Golden Trowel, and the 33rd Degree.  During those years he also served as Worthy Patron of the Order of Eastern Star, as well as in the Arabian Temple of Shriners.  Lee also found time and was interested in serving those in need or trouble locally by his actions on the Volunteer Services Council of Richmond State School.  Additionally, he spent many years as a volunteer at Polly Ryon Hospital, being proud of his pink jacket and getting much joy from his work until well after his 90th birthday.

      Lee served on the Richmond School Board years before the formation of LCISD.  At First Baptist Church of Richmond, Lee's service and leadership positions included chairman of the Deacon body, numerous committees, Sunday School teacher, and many other responsibilities.  Serving as volunteer leadership in the Boy Scouts of America, he earned the highest award given adults - the Silver Beaver - and saw both a son and grandsons become Eagle Scouts.

      For 57 years he was a loving husband to Beatrice Stewart Grayless, met and married in Richmond, who died in 1988. His sons who have remained in Rosenberg-Richmond and raised their families are Raymond with wife Melinda Grayless and Robert with wife Mary Ann Grayless.

      Lee was born on Tarkington Prairie in Liberty County and graduated from Tarkington Prairie High School, where his highlight achievements were basketball and wrestling. Lee came to Richmond in 1926, apprenticed himself, and rose to the highest skill levels as both Master Electrician and Master Plumber.  In many of our local historical homes and buildings Lee's skill and hard work can be found. Lee pursued the development and prospering of his business Grayless Plumbing, Electric, and Appliances.  As a master craftsman, he associated with other like workers in local, state, regional and national organizations and served as President of the Texas State Plumbers Assoc. During World War II in order to serve his country, Lee moved his family into government camps so that he could use his skills in chemical plants and factories providing necessary war materials under contract to Uncle Sam.  He gave his time for the protection of our homes and businesses as a volunteer firefighter in the Richmond Fire Department.  In that capacity, he was active in the rescue and recovery operations during the Texas City Disaster in 1947.

      Civic and beneficent clubs in which Lee held membership include Richmond Rotary and Rose-Rich Optimists.  In both he served for years in officer and leadership roles.  His community governmental service included the Fort Bend County Grand Jury, the Richmond City Commission, the Richmond Municipal Judge's Bench, and other state, county, and city boards.

      Lee's memberships and organizational participation all well-passed the 50-year mark, and his earned badges, pins, and certificates attest to an adult lifetime spent in service.  Lee was certainly an exceptional man and his family was privileged to have and love him.

      His 60s and 70s were filled with his volunteerism and his enjoyment from five grandchildren - David Grayless, Dixon Grayless, and Dyan (Grayless) Hudson; and Jeffrey and Robert (Bobby) Grayless.  Then, his 80s and 90s were rejuvenated again with his volunteerism and his nine great-grandchildren - Heather, Jordan and Jeremy Grayless; Ashley and Emily Grayless; Lee and Loryn Hudson; and Lacy and Landen Grayless.

      The Grayless family was headed by Lee as the oldest and followed up with three brothers and three sisters.  Of the original seven siblings, three remain - brothers Jodie of Richmond, Arnold and wife Mary of Cleveland, TX, and Edward and wife Dalva of Conroe.  Lee was preceded in death by his parents Wright N. (Fudge) and Jennie Simmons Grayless, his sisters Fay and husband Autrey Cole, May Dell Walker Bridges and husbands Hovis Walker and Forrest Bridges, and Bernice and husband Tim Tilton, as well as sisters-in-law Ann and Irene Grayless.  There are a host of nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and great great nieces and nephews to enjoy the "Lee" stories for years to come.

      Serving him as pall bearers are Lee's grandchildren:  David Grayless, Kathy Grayless, Jeff Grayless, Dixon Grayless, Dyan Hudson, and Bobby Grayless.

      His family requests any love offerings or memorial gifts be sent in Lee's name to First Baptist Church Richmond, 502 South Fifth St., Richmond, TX 77469.

      The family wishes to publicly thank the staff at Fort Bend Health Care Center, Dr. Sylvester Vaughns, Pastor John D. Lockhart, and the Deacon Body for their attentive care and kindnesses to our father, father-in-law, grandfather, and great grandfather Lee Grayless.

      Family and friends may sign the online Guest Book or leave a condolence message for the Grayless family by going to Web site www.garmanycarden.com.

      Services are under the direction of Garmany and Carden Funeral Directors, 1201 Fourth St, in Rosenberg, 281-342-4671.

GRAYLESS THE WINNER
Takes the Blue Grass Stakes at
Louisville in a Dive.

LOUISVILLE. Ky., May 7.-The Blue Grass stakes, valued at $1300, for three year-olds, was the principal racing piece of to-day's rather ordinary card. Owing to the rains of Saturday night and Sunday, which left the track muddy and sticky, half of the entries were drawn. The. race proved a good one for the three which finished in front, a half length separating Grayless, the winner, from Love's Labor, which was a half length in front Celeritus, the favorite. The time. 1:21½. was excellent, considering the condition of the track. Results: ... Six and one-half furlongs, the Blue Grass Stakes— Grayless won, Love's Labor second Celeritus third. Time, 1:21½. ...
