CARETAKER BAILEY DROWNS ON CUMBERLAND ISLAND

            One of Cumberland Island's residents, described by friends as a man who never had en enemy in his life, drowned Saturday while apparently attempting to return his boat to shore in Christmas Creek.
            Jesse Bailey, 63, who had lived on Cumberland for most of his life, was well known to visitors and residents of the island.
            He was frequently seen piloting his small motorboat along the shoreline or in the waters of Christmas Creek in search of fish and shellfish.
            Mr. Bailey was reported missing to the National Park Service when he went to retrieve his boat after the noon meal Saturday and did not return.
            "Bailey had gone out for oysters in the morning on Christmas Creek around the Williams' residence.  The creek level on the mud flat was so low that he couldn't get his boat back in.
            After lunch he went back for the boat and apparently drowned," said Deputy Ricky Sirmon of the Camden County Sheriff's Department.
            Mr. Bailey's big black poodle Bushy alerted islanders to his master's disappearance when he showed up barking on the porch of George and Audra Merrow, also caretakers on the Candler estate.
            Bushy would not calm down, but continued to bark, so Merrow took the dog to the creek where Bushy showed Merrow the place Mr. Bailey had entered the creek.
            The body of the missing man was discovered about 9:40 a.m. Sunday following a search by officials of the Sheriff's Department, Department of Natural Resources and Cumberland Island Park Service, said Sirmon.  Island residents Larry Miller and Carol Ruckdeschel found the body on an oyster bed.
            Following the transfer of the body to the mainland, the cause of death was determined to be as the result of accidental drowning, said Gil Kelley, deputy county coroner.
            "He was a colorful person and he will be missed," said Grover Henderson, of the man he described as his friend and the friend of everyone who met him.
            Henderson said that Mr. Bailey came to Cumberland Island in the 1930s from Sapelo Island to help build the Candler House at High Point and stayed on as caretaker of the house.
            "He knew everyone who lived on the island from the Rockefellers and Carnegies on down.
            Jesse was one of the few people I've known that everyone liked.  He never had an enemy and that's rare in the twentieth century," said Henderson.
            Known to many on the island for his gifts of clams, oysters and fish to those he liked, Mr. Bailey would often barter his catch with the residents of the island, trading for the things which he needed or wanted.
            "He knew more about fishing on Christmas Creek than any man on the island," said Henderson.
            A fishing trip with Mr. Bailey was described by the authors of Guale, the Golden Coast of Georgia, published in 1974.
            In a profile of Mr. Bailey, his skillful search for shellfish and lifestyle were described:  "Jesse's real life is not lived in the society of men.  His true home is not on land, but down in the salt marsh of Christmas Creek."

BAILOR, Ned
The Brunswick Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 19 December 1885 pg. 3 col. 1

DEATH OF NED BAILOR—VALUE OF CHARACTER IN THE HUMBLEST CITIZEN STRIKINGLY ILLUSTRATED

            On the 16th of December Ned Bailor died; on the 17th he was buried.  Who was Ned Bailor?  A colored man of ripe old age, an humble worker, a member of the African Baptist church, of the colored Masonic and Benevolent societies; for years past a drayman on his own account, and engaged in this work when prostrated by his last illness.
            Truthful, hones, faithful, a leading singer in the church choir of his church, treasurer of benevolent societies organized among his people, he won and held the confidence of all, both white and black.
            During the war he was in the service with Mr. Wiggins, of Waynesville in the Fourth Georgia cavalry, acting as drummer.  Since the organization of our military company he has been its drummer.
            At his funeral the colored Masons turned out in force, the church was crowded with people, the Brunswick Riflemen marched to the colored cemetery from the church and buried him with military honors.  A more striking tribute to true worth in the humblest station was never known than this.  It teaches to all, the highest and the humblest, the value of a worthy life, the certainty of its recognition everywhere and under all circumstances.

DEATH OF DR. J.B.L. BAKER

DEATH OF MRS. M.M. BARKULOO 

            It becomes our sad and painful duty to chronicle the death of Mrs. Barkuloo, of this city.  For two weeks past she had been suffering from a severe attack of typhoid pneumonia, and on yesterday, she gently closed her eyes in quiet sleep--that sleep from which she will awake on the resurrection morn.
            Of her ability as a teacher; her devotion to her children, and her quiet Christian spirit, no word from us is necessary--all who knew her can testify to these.  Left a widow in '73 by the death of Col. Barkuloo, and although of very retiring disposition, she with true womanly courage braved the cares of life and maintained her family, rather than lean upon others.  Of her it can well be said, "Truly she hath done what she could."  Having a large family connection this sad news carries mourning to many a household.  She leaves a family of four orphan children to mourn her irreparable loss.

THE VICTIM DIED—A Negro Kills a White Man in Brunswick

            Brunswick, Ga. December 3—[Special—William Barkuloo was struck in the head by John Boatwright a negro laborer with a piece of scantling yesterday and died this morning at 4 o’clock from the injuries received.  The affair was a cold blooded one.  At the hour Barkuloo died his murderer was arrested at his home on Dartmouth street.  Boatwright had just gotten into his house and was in the act of undressing when he was made to put on his clothes again by the officers, when he was taken to jail.
            Barkuloo was foreman of the lumber dock of Stillwell Millen & Co. and he discharged Boatwright from his employ.  The latter refused to go and stood around making himself obnoxious.  A truck had been run off the track and Barkuloo having been led to believe Boatwright did it accused him.  The negro replied “Whoever said I did it is a d—d liar.”  This angered Mr. Barkuloo who seized a stick and struck at Boatwright.  The negro by this time got hold of a piece of wood the same size that Barkuloo had and struck the latter over the head.  Mr. Barkuloo fell unconscious and was afterwards taken to his home where Dr. H. Burford was summoned.  Dr. Blain was also called but despite their close attention and all that loving hands could do Barkuloo gradually sank until the hour of 4 o’clock this morning.
            A reporter called at the jail this morning to see Boatwright and learn what he had to say about the matter but was refused admittance.  The coroner was notified of the death of Barkuloo but he sought the advice of the solicitor general, who said that an inquest was unnecessary.  He was between thirty five and forty years of age, and leaves a wife to mourn his sudden demise.  The funeral will take place tomorrow at 10 o’clock a.m. from the First Baptist church.  Excitement was high with talk of lynching, but all is quiet tonight.

FIVE DIE IN ONE DAY—The Death Wagon Rattles O’er the Streets from Morn Till Night—MINISTERS HURRY FROM BED TO BED—Messengers Wait at the Doors to Summon Them from One Chamber of Death to Another—The Pestilence Spreads.

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—(Special.)—Death did its work today, and tonight, beneath the sod in Oak Grove cemetery, five victims of the yellow plague sleep within its arms.  Three more are beyond the power of earthly skill to save.  Down Brunswick’s streets today the dead wagon moved rapidly, carrying the unfortunates to the graves that awaited them.  Back and forth the wagon passed, and as one grave was filled another was dug beside it.  The ministers, from early dawn, drove rapidly to the bedsides of their people; but their prayers could not save the lives they so anxiously watched passing away.  As the breath left the body of one, a messenger stood at the door waiting to direct the ministers to another.  They were powerless to save, and could only pray.  Noble, self-sacrificing ministers, He above alone knows all the good work they have done today.  As the newspaper men hurried fro house to house, getting a list of the dead and dying, they, at least, saw something of their labors.  The ministers of Brunswick, known now throughout the land, can die, should it be ordered, with the consciousness that they labored through famine, pestilence and death for their people’s sake, and at the throne of God, when their time comes, none can doubt, who knows their work, the reward that will await them.  In the golden book, the names of Thompson, Cook, Hennessey, Winn and Perry will shine with a light that cannot be dimmed, for their record is one of noble deeds.  C.W.D.

DYING RAPIDLY—The Pestilence Breaks Its Previous Records at Brunswick

            Brunswick, Ga., October 21.—There were officially reported today five deaths and forty-nine new cases, the record breaker of the epidemic.  The dead on the list are:  Whites—Burr Winton, Herman Grundy, Alexander Pritchard and Mrs. Oberlauter.
            At 9:30 o’clock tonight William C. Weed died.  He was a victim of imprudent nursing.  His nurse, through feeling for the man begging for food, like all yellow fever patients do, gave him, against the physician’s orders, some nourishing food.  He might have been saved had this not been done.
            The new cases are:  Whites, in Brunswick, 7; Hilda Poulsen, Bessie Firth, Samuel Silverstein, W.A. Line, Thomas Mulligan, F. McC. Brown and Mrs. Currie.
            Whites, on St. Simon’s, 3—Thomas Lambright, Monroe Lambright and Mrs. Taylor, making the total new cases of whites 10.
            To the official lists of deaths should be added one that occurred this afternoon, Lytton Hazelhurst, a negro boy on North Amherst street.
            Besides this a negro child, Pinkie Wilson, died and her death certificate, issued October 18th by Dr. Robert Hazelhurst, read:  “Cause of death, yellow fever; dead before physician reported her.”  This death, although occurring three days ago, has never been reported.
            This makes a total of seven yellow fever deaths that should be counted today.  Two others are hourly expected to die, Ernest George and Adolph Lavine.  There is no possible hope for them.  Two other deaths occurred today, Essie Beckman, a negro child, and Mrs. Scranton, but neither from yellow fever.
            The warm weather following the few days of rain and the cool spell has brought the disease rapidly to the front.  There are now 258 under treatment, 60 white and 198 colored.  The outlook is not cheering for twenty-five days yet.  When the dread of famine seems to be disappearing and the people are breathing easier deaths roll up and the fever increases alarmingly.
            One new case is reported at Jesup today, a son of R.W. Tindall, white.
            Four patients were discharged.  Six are now under treatment.

COLONEL BEE’S DEATH—The Close of a Remarkable Career in Savannah

            SAVANNAH, Ga, November 17—(Special)—The community was shocked today by the sudden death of Colonel Barnard E. Bee, clerk of the superior court.  At seven o’clock this morning his servant began to assist him to dress.  Before the servant had finished, Colonel Bee complained of a severe pain in his side, and asked to be immediately put back in bed.  He appeared to partly swoon away.  His family were called, and within fifteen minutes he was dead.
            Barnard Elliott Bee was born in Savannah, and at the time of his death was in his sixtieth year.  He was a son of Captain William Bee, an officer in the American army in the war of 1812.  When a young man, B.E. Bee was employed as a clerk in the office of Isaac Cohen, a merchant on Bay street.  While with Mr. Cohen, in 1848, Mr. Bee fell through a trap door in one of the buildings on the bay.  It was thought at first that his injuries would be fatal.  He survived the fall, but was a cripple for life.  In 1852 he was elected receiver of tax returns, which office he held until a few years ago, when he resigned.  He was once a candidate for ordinary, but was not elected.  Then he was elected clerk of the superior court, the first term of which expired last January, when he was re-elected.  Governor Stephens appointed him as lieutenant colonel of his staff.  Both were cripples and used wheeled chairs, a fact that caused a great deal of playful and pathetic comment when Colonel Bee called upon the governor during the city’s sesquicentennial in 1883.  The county commissioners appointed Deputy Clerk J.K.P. Carr to succeed Colonel Bee until an election could be held.    Mr. Carr has been in office seventeen years.  The vacancy had to be filled at once.  Tuesday last was return day for the December term of the superior court.
            There were a number of papers for the clerk to sign and give to the sheriff to serve.  These papers have to be served within five days and the time expires on Monday.  The clerk appoints his own deputy, and hence when the clerk died his deputy, Mr. J.K.P. Carr, could not legally act longer.  If the clerk’s office remains vacant several suits will have to go over for another term.  The commissioners of Chatham county have the power of filling all vacancies.  Judge Adams was consulted, and he advised them to appoint a clerk without delay.  The board accordingly met at twelve o’clock and appointed Mr. James K.P. Carr.  Notice of the appointment will be forwarded to Atlanta tonight.  Governor Gordon will probably receive it tomorrow, sign a commission for Mr. Carr and mail it so that it will reach Savannah on Saturday morning.  If there is no delay, he can qualify on Saturday and sign as clerk such papers as are to be turned over to the sheriff.

DIED

            On the 24th ult., in this city, Mrs. Laura Bee, wife of Mr. Wm. Joseph Bee and mother of Judge George B. Mabry.  A sad household indeed is that.  No wife to cheer and comfort the one, and no mother’s love to sooth the other.
            One by one we pass away and are gathered “on the other side of the river,” where parting is unknown.  May a kind Father heal the bleeding hearts, and may this dispensation of His providence prove a benefit to us all.

SIX BELIEVE DROWNED—No Hope for Crew of Brunswick Tug.

            Brunswick, Ga., January 6—Hope for the safety of any of the six members of the crew of the tug Rambler, wrecked off Cumberland island near here Monday during a heavy sea, were abandoned tonight.
            The bodies of the two negro crew members were found on the beach today, together with portions of the clothing of the four white men.  Wreckage was strewn for two miles along the coast.
            The Rambler was wrecked after going aground and while the crew was waiting for high tide to float the vessel.
            The missing and dead include Harry Ingram, captain; Carlos U. Dart, engineer; George Bell, fireman; Charles Segui, fisherman; Henry Roberts, negro deck hand, and Dave Smith, negro cook.

SIX PERISH WHEN TUG IS BEATEN TO PIECES—TUG RAMBLER IS WRECKED OFF CUMBERLAND ISLAND AND CREW LOST—TWO BODIES RECOVERED

            MACON, Ga., Jan. 6.—Six men were lost off Little Cumberland Monday night, when the tug Rambler was wrecked, every one of the crew losing their lives.  News of the wreck developed today with the finding of two bodies.  The dead:
            Harry Ingram, captain.
            Carlos U. Dart, engineer.
            George Bell, fireman.
            Charles Segui, fisherman.
            Henry Roberts, negro deck hand.
            Dave Smith, negro cook.
            The Rambler left Brunswick Monday morning at 7 o’clock.  About 11 o’clock the tug went ashore just one-half mile off Little Cumberland beach.  The boat was half filled with water and members of the crew went ashore in a small boat, secured buckets and bailed out their boat.  A passing launch went to their assistance, but when she arrived all six members of the crew were on the top of the cabin house, laughing and joking, not realizing the danger they were in.  The launch offered assistance, but Captain Ingram stated his tug would be successfully floated with high water.
            However, when the tide began to flood a strong northeast wind arose and it is believed before the Rambler could be floated she was crushed to pieces by the heavy sea which was reported to be rolling high.  Searchers left Brunswick during Tuesday and this morning on the beach at Little Cumberland the bodies of the two negroes were found.  What became of the white men is unknown, except parts of their clothing were found on the beach.  Wreckage was strewn for miles along the coast.

RAMBLER HAD NO LIFE RAFT AT TIME OF WRECK—Old One Had Been Condemned at Brunswick—REMOVED, NOT REPLACED—Steamboat Inspectors Arrive at Brunswick to Investigate the Disaster Which Cost Lives of Six Men on Coast of Little Cumberland Island.

            BRUNSWICK, Jan. 9.—W.B. Lee and E.G. Fitzgerald, steamboat inspectors of this district, with headquarters in Savannah, arrived in the city today for the purpose of making an investigation into the wreck of the little tug Rambler a few days ago, in which the lives of six persons were lost.  Strange to relate, these inspectors were in Brunswick Tuesday for the purpose of inspecting the Rambler and they were awaiting her return to port when the news was received that she had been wrecked and that the entire crew had been lost.
            On a recent inspection of the Rambler the inspectors condemned the life raft which had been carried by the tug.  It was removed and placed on her wharf but was not replaced, and it is now pointed out that had the tug carried a proper life raft probably the lives of all six men would have been saved.  It was not discovered that the raft was not aboard until an investigation was made, and at first it was thought that the crew had not been drowned, but that they were adrift somewhere on the raft.
            BODIES STILL MISSING—The bodies of Capt. Harry Ingram, Engineer Charles Dart, and George Bell and Charles Segui, the four white men on the tug, have not yet been recovered, although searching parties have been out every day since the wreck and have patrolled the beach along Little Cumberland in the hope that the bodies would be washed ashore.  Only the bodies of the two negro members of the crew have been recovered.
            This unfortunate accident has cast a shadow of gloom over the entire city, owing to the popularity of some of the unfortunate men lost.  Captain Ingram and Engineer Dart, who were the owners of the Rambler, were well known in Brunswick, having resided here practically all of their lives.  They were both married and leave a wife and two or three children each.  They were considered two of the most capable sea faring men engaged in marine work around these waters, and for that reason hope for their safety was held out to the very last.

90-YEAR-OLD NEGRO KNEELS IN PRAYER AS HIS LIFE ENDS

            Wesley Bell, 90-year-old negro, was deeply religious.
            Even in his declining years his religion was his greatest activity.
            Unable to do manual labor and earn his livelihood, Father Time pauperized the aged negro.  He became a ward of the city poor house.
            From slavery days in the ante-bellum days, “Old Wesley” never shunned his religion and his prayers.
            Early yesterday the feeble darkey went about his daily routine in the poor house and about 8 o’clock in the morning kneeled by the side of his bed to offer prayers to his Maker.
            There he was found a short time later—his head leaning on the bed, his arms outstretched—kneeling where he uttered his final mortal words with God—dead!
            He died as he would have had it—on his knees praying to his Almighty.
            A Christian, but a pauper, the former slave will be given a decent, but simple burial in pauper’s field.

RUN OVER AND KILLED

            To chronicle the death of anyone is a sad duty but peculiarly so when the death be a violent one, as was the case of Mr. Wm. Bell, of Macon, which occurred in our city last Wednesday night, about midnight.  It seems he had been drinking during the day, and had lain down under one of the cars on the track in front of the Cotton Press.  Whilst the early lumber train was being made up, the car under which he was lying was pushed forward, and the unfortunate man caught and carried along several feet, his leg broken and internal injuries received that caused his death in three hours.  Officer McCrary was standing near when the poor fellow first cried out, and had the train stopped, but too late.
            Mr. Bell was formerly of Fernandina, but is now of Macon, where his wife resides, and whither his remains were sent Thursday night.  He was at one time foreman of the M. & B. machine shops, and also of the M. & W.

CEMETERY DEDICATED—The First Burial.

            Sometime ago a gentleman named William Bernhard appeared in this city trying to get an appointment as nurse to the sufferers of Florida.  He was taken sick whilst boarding at Mr. Jos. Doerflingers [sic], and died there.  After he had been ill several days his money gave out, but that made no difference in the treatment received; Mr. Doerflinger continued to take care of him.  Dr. Bottsford [sic] visited him regularly, and Messrs. Hodges & O’Connor continued to furnish him medicine.
            A stranger in a strange land, he was not left to suffer, but good Samaritans nursed and nourished him, and Sunday he was laid away to rest in the new cemetery.  The Jewish Rabbi, Mr. Rosenburg, first dedicated the spot with appropriate ceremonies, and then the form of the Jewish stranger who had died in our midst was laid away to rest, the first in the newly dedicated grounds.
            Among the baggage of the stranger were several newspaper notices, the latest of which was from an Augusta paper, announcing that he would leave the next day for Florida to secure a place as a nurse to the yellow fever sufferers.  In the article was his treatment of yellow fever, etc., showing that he was no novice in the business.

PEYTON BISHOP FATALLY HURT IN U.S. 17 MISHAP—Automobile Crashes Into Rear End of Tractor-Trailer

            Peyton Wade Bishop, 2002 Ellis street, was fatally injured last night when the car which he was driving ploughed into the rear of a tractor-trailer on U.S. Highway 17 on Blythe Island.
            The 35-year-old veteran died without regaining consciousness soon after reaching City Hospital.
            Thomas H. Long of Glen Burnie, Md., the operator of the tractor-trailer, was unhurt.
            Coroner L.M. Harrison announced that an inquest into the death will be conducted this afternoon at 3 o’clock.
            County police quoted Long as saying he was traveling north on U.S. 17 and his vehicle was barely moving.  He said he was preparing to turn into a service station on the left side of the highway and was waiting for the lane for south-bound traffic to become clear.
            At this juncture, he told police, he observed the car which Bishop was driving approaching at a high rate of speed from the rear.  Long began blinking his tail lights frantically in an effort to attract Bishop’s attention to the tractor-trailer.
            The driver of the car applied his brakes, and the automobile skidded 120 feet before crashing into the rear end of the tractor-trailer with a terrific impact, sufficient to demolish the car.
            Bishop, the victim of a brain injury, was carried to the hospital in an ambulance.
            One of the witnesses listed by police was Edwin Boartfield, another resident of Maryland.  His truck was in front of the tractor-trailer, and like Long, he had slowed down to turn into the service station.
            Funeral arrangements for the victim are incomplete and will be announced later by the Miller Funeral Home.
            Bishop was a native of Dawson and lived her with his brother, H.O. Bishop.  Other survivors are his mother, Mrs. Minnie Pearl Britt of Dawson, five half-brothers and one half-sister.

FINAL TRIBUTE IS PAID MISS BLAIN BY LOCAL FRIENDS

        Impressive funeral services for Miss Maria C. Blain, who passed away Saturday morning, were held Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock at St. Mark's Episcopal church, of which she was one of the founders.  Dr. Royal K. Tucker, rector, conducted the services, paying high tribute to this remarkable Christian character.  Dr. Tucker announced that a book of memory would be placed in the church, containing the names of all parishioners representing a perpetual thank offering in honor and memory of Miss Blain, who had played such a significant part in the early history of St. Mark's church.
        Many beautiful floral tributes banked the chancel, attesting the love and esteem in which "Miss Maria" was held.
        The funeral was attended by scores of friends, including detachments from the Brunswick Riflemen, of which Miss Blain was an honorary member; from the Oglethorpe Guards, and a delegation from the Brunswick fire department headed by Chief Harrison.  In attendance were also representatives of the Clement A. Evans chapter, United Daughters of the Confederacy, of which "Miss Maria" was honorary lite[?] president, and the Maria C. Blain chapter, Children of the Confederacy.  The city and county, the Masonic order, and the civic clubs of the city were also represented at the funeral to pay a last loving tribute to Miss Blain, who had become a real Brunswick institution, during her long and useful life.
        The choir, composed of Mrs. W.M. Oates, Miss Sadie Dart, Mrs. Al Womack, Don Sheffield, and Dr. John Paul Jones, beautifully rendered two hymns, "Art Thou Weary" and "Thy Will be Done," while Guy Hackett, organist, softly played "Lead Kindly Light," preceding the service.  These three hymns have been favorites in the Blain family for several generations, being sung at the funeral of Miss Blain's grandmother, and on through the years.
        Services were concluded at the graveside in Oak Grove cemetery, Dr. Tucker officiating.
        A military guard of honor accompanied the body to its last resting place where "Miss Maria" was tenderly laid to rest.

JAMES BLOUNT, 51, COUNTY RESIDENT SHOOTS HIMSELF

        Jas. Blount, 51-year-old Glynn county resident, ended his life Saturday afternoon near his home on the canal road, eight miles from Brunswick, shooting his head off with a single barrelled [sic] shotgun, and Coroner J.D. Baldwin said after an investigation that it was unquestionably suicide.
        According to evidence secured by the coroner Blount returned to his home Saturday afternoon and acted queerly.  He went into his house and picked up the single-barrel shotgun with which he ended his life.  Members of his family became frightened, the coroner was told, and fled from the house.  They walked some distance up the road and heard a report of the gun.  Returning, Blount was found in the yard of his home, his head practically blown off.  It was evident he placed the gun close to his head and pulled the trigger.
        A coroner's jury yesterday, after hearing evidence, returned a verdict that the man came to his death from a shotgun wound self-inflicted.
        Blount had resided in Glynn county for many years and was well known in the vicinity in which he resided and elsewhere.  The only reason assigned for his act was that he had been despondent for some time.  He is survived by his widow and five children.
        Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon, burial being in Palmetto cemetery.

BOMBARD, John
The Augusta Chronicle; Sunday 26 January 1997; pg. 5C

Caption:  JETTA FRASER/ASSOCIATED PRESS—John Bombard's face is captured in a photo that rests on the 4-year-old's donated casket as Amazing Grace is sung Tuesday in Brunswick, Ga. John's parents left town, leaving his body unclaimed and three children in the care of the Georgia Department of Family and Children's Services.

            A lack of money, not grief, kept Michelle Parker away from the funeral of her 4-year-old son, who was buried in a donated grave after she abandoned him the day he died.
            She didn't know state authorities would have given her a ride.
            “I want to say thank you to all the people' who organized and paid for the funeral,” Ms. Parker said Friday.  “I would have come if it had been possible.”
            John Bombard was overcome by exhaust fumes Jan. 2 while riding in the camper shell of his family's pickup truck.  His mother and stepfather, moving from Sunbury, Pa., to Florida, found him when they stopped at a rest area on Interstate 95 near Brunswick.
            They continued on to Florida, but their three other children were placed in protective custody.  The couple did not have the money to take John to Florida and bury him, said Clyde Burgit, Ms. Parker's common-law husband.
            John was buried Tuesday in a donated grave at Palmetto Cemetery.  The service, arranged by Brunswick residents, was attended by about 150 people.
            “It was a horrible accident,” Mr. Burgit said.  “It wasn't our fault.  The only thing Michelle and I are guilty of is moving our family.  We love our kids.”
            The couple left Pennsylvania thinking it would be easier to find jobs in Florida, Ms. Parker said.  Mr. Burgit is working as a cook, but she said she has not found a job.
            Ms. Parker, 26, began to weep as she talked about John, who loved toy cars and trucks and was protective of his 9-month-old sister.
            “He was a sweet little boy,” Ms. Parker said.
            Mr. Burgit, 31, said they want to regain custody of their infant daughter, his 3-year-old daughter and 4-year-old son from a previous marriage.
            The three are now living in a foster home in Glynn County, where a Juvenile Court judge has ruled they should remain for now.
            Ms. Parker's cousin, Diane Allen of Shamokin, Pa., said their family will have a memorial service at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Trinity Lutheran Church in Shamokin, about 18 miles from Sunbury in central Pennsylvania.
            Family members organized the service after talking with Ms. Parker this week.

The Atlanta Journal & The Atlanta Constitutions; Sunday 26 January 1997; pg. 2G

            John Bombard, abandoned by his parents a few hours after he died, was not alone when he was buried.
            More than 200 people gathered at a donated grave for services for the 4-year-old Pennsylvania boy they never knew.
            As a saxophone accompanied a version of "Amazing Grace," an honor guard of Brunswick firefighters, city and county police officers and Boy Scouts, all in their dress uniforms, stood at attention.
            The casket was bought with contributions from Brunswick and Glynn County police officers. It was adorned with three teddy bears, an angel and a spray of fresh flowers.
            The child died Jan. 2 of carbon monoxide poisoning while riding in the camper shell of a pickup truck as his family was moving from Sunbury, Pa., to Tampa, Fla., where his parents hoped to find work.
            John's death was ruled accidental. He had been dead for at least four hours when his parents made the discovery at a rest area on I-95 near Brunswick.
            Three young siblings who also inhaled the toxic exhaust were treated at a local hospital but did not require hospitalization. The children - a 3-year-old stepsister, 4-year-old stepbrother and 9-month-old sister -were taken into protective custody. Their parents continued south.
            They did not return for the funeral.

MISS BERTHA BORCHARDT

            BRUNSWICK, April 9.—The funeral of Miss Bertha Borchardt, who died suddenly at the home of her sister, Mrs. C. Lilenthal, took place yesterday afternoon, and was attended by an unusually large number of friends of this well known and popular young woman.
            Miss Borchardt had not been in the best of health recently, having just recovered from an operation.  However she was on the road to recovery and had been out among her friends.  Wednesday morning she arose as usual and was in her room when attacked with what physicians announced to be heart failure.  Her sister hearing her fall across the bed rushed into the room and, seeing that she was ill, summoned assistance, but the unfortunate young woman died in a very few minutes.  Miss Borchardt has been a resident of Brunswick all of her life and was loved by all who knew her.  She is survived by two sisters, B. Borchardt, R. Borchardt and Joseph Borchardt, of this city, and S. Borchardt of Tampa.

Died on St. Simons

            Softly the angel of death kissed the bright eyes of little Foster, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Parker Bowling, who had only seen life’s sunshine for one short year, and the little hands were folded over the little heart and he had fallen asleep.  In the quaint old moss draped graveyard at Frederica, loving hands laid the little one to rest.  There are aching hearts in the home from which he was taken, and another sweet flower added to the garden of Heaven.

WHITE MAN KILLED BY BLOW FROM A NEGRO—Fatal Difficulty Near Bladen Tuesday Night—NEGRO IS STILL AT LARGE—The Dead Man Was a Brother to Mrs. Joseph Lasserre of This City

            At Owens’ store, four miles from Bladen on the F.C. and P. railroad Tuesday night, Mr. Brown, brother of Mrs. Joseph Lasserre, of this city, was brained by a negro and the murderer is still at large.
            Mr. Brown clerks in the store and when he refused the negro credit it was the sign for a fuss.  After abusing Mr. Brown considerably he showed fight and reaching for a scantling he struck him in the head scattering his brains for many yards around.
            As soon as he committed the terrible crime the negro made good his escape and up to the present has not been captured.
            The murdered man was formerly from Camden county.  He has visited Brunswick on several occasions and had many friends here who will be grieved to hear of the terrible affair.

MURDERER OF BROWN GIVES UP TO SHERIFF—An Old Negro Surrenders to Authorities—TELLS A PECULIAR STORY—Says He Never Struck Mr. Brown With Scantling, But Only a Blow With His Fist

            There is in the murderer’s cell of the Glynn county jail at present an old-time-Georgia darkey, who says he is 63 years old, but from all appearances, he is not a day less than 80.
            And this old negro is on a very serious charge, one that may cost him his life, but he does not seem to realize what he has done.
            This old negro, Charley Harvey by name, is the man who murdered Mr. Brown at Owens’ store, near Bladen, on last Tuesday night, a full account of which appeared in yesterday’s TIMES-CALL.  Harvey was not seen after the murder was committed until yesterday morning, when he came to Brunswick and surrendered to Sheriff Berrie.
            A representative of the TIMES-CALL went to the jail to see the old negro, and he was found asleep in his cell, and it took several good knocks on the iron door to awake him from his slumbers.  The reporter told the old-timer that he wanted an honest account of how the killing occurred, and he started off:
            “Well, boss, I never did think dat I would be behind dese bars for killin’ a white man, but I is, I spose,” said Harvey, and then he went on to tell his story, which, in substance, was as follows:
            Mr. Brown was employed as a clerk in Mr. Owens’ store, and the negro was also employed by Mr. Owens at his residence.  He wanted some whiskey, and says that Mr. Owens told him to go to the store and get it, but Mr. Brown refused to let the darkey have it without the money, and a quarrel was the result.  According to the negro’s statement, he was followed out of the store by Mr. Brown, and was struck across the head twice by him with a piece of wood, although he showed no signs of any blows.  The negro says that he then picked up a piece of scantling, but that Brown took it away from him, and he hit him (Brown) with his fist just above the right ear, and that he fell to the ground, his head hitting heavily on the hard ground, “and if he am dead, boss, dat is jes what kilt him,” said the negro.  Harvey said that he then left the scene of the difficulty and as soon as he was informed that Mr. Brown was dead, he started to Brunswick to surrender to the sheriff, and rented a boat to com over from Fancy Bluff.  He reached the city about 10:30 o’clock yesterday morning, went directly to the jail, and told the above story.
            So far, we have heard of no eye witnesses to the killing, and it is, therefore, impossible to give Brown’s side of the case.  The negro said that there were two people who saw it all, but if it is true, they have not let it be known.

A SAD DEATH AT BRUNSWICK, GA.

            On last Friday night June 27th, many hearts were filled with sorrow, when the news of Mrs. Maggie Bryan’s death were heard.  A more beautiful life has never lived.  A pious, consistent christian, always ready to defend the church of God; a friend who never betrayed a trust; a loving mother, who tenderly watched over and prayed for her fatherless children.  She was twice a widow, her first husband, Mr. James Carter, brother of Mr. H.B. Garnett, died leaving her with three small children, whom she carefully reared and today they are filing places of trust.  Her second husband, Rev. J.C. Bryan, died several years ago, and left her with two little girls, who have been cared for and educated by their two brothers, William and James Carter, two of the most dutiful sons and brothers that ever lived.  Their good deeds will ever be remembered, and their examples shining lights for others to follow.  The funeral took place from the First Baptist Church.  The pastor, Rev. John Williams, spoke in beautiful words to a vast audience; he was assisted by Rev. Ford of Bethel Church, Jacksonville, Fla., Rev. S. Roberts and Rev. Fisher.  To mourn her loss are five children, Prof. W.M. Carter, President, Topeka N. and I. College, Topeka, Kans.; James G. Carter, Consular to Madagascar; Mrs. Maggie Carter Lewis, Misses Nita and Edna Bryan, two brothers, Mr. C.A. Clark, Mr. Wm. Clark, three sisters, Mrs. I.M. Jones, Mrs. Julia Robinson, Mrs. Ellie Moore, a devoted aunt, Mrs. Corine Delaney and many other relatives and friends.  Death is sad! but theirs is [sic] comfort in the words of the poet:
            Come ye disconsolate, wher’er ye languish;
                        Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel,
            Here bring your wounded heart;
                        There tell your anguish,
            Earth has no sorrow,
                        That heaven cannot heal.

A Friend.

POPULAR ENGINEER IS BURIED IN BRUNSWICK—H. Kendrick Burgay of Southern Railway Drops Dead in Glynn Sunday; Well Known in Macon.

Kendrick Burgay, one of the best known and most popular engineers on the Southern Railway, who dropped dead on Sunday morning, in this city, was buried yesterday afternoon, the funeral having been delayed pending the arrival in the city of one of Mr. Burgay’s sons, who is in the navy station at Hampton Roads.
            Mr. Burgay who has been an engineer on the Southern for many years, resided in this city practically all of his life.  Several years ago, however, he moved to Macon and made that city his home for a number of years, returning to Brunswick to again reside several months ago.  For years he was on the passenger runs between Brunswick and Macon, but at the time of his death was running between Macon and Jacksonville.
            Mr. Burgay came to Brunswick Saturday to spend the day with his family, Sunday morning he left his home to return to Macon, in his usual health.  He had reached the depot and was talking to a member of the train crew when he fell to the ground, death following within a few minutes.  Apoplexy was the cause of his death.  The deceased was known, not only in Macon and Brunswick, but at every point along the line of the Southern over which he traveled for so many years.  He is survived by his widow and five children.

The Brunswick Advocate; 9 August 1838

            DIED—At his residence in this County on Saturday the 28th July, at 12 o'clock, M., after a painful illness of many months, Col. John Burnett in the 77th year of his age.  When the Destroyer breathes upon the blooming cheek of the young, and makes the aspirant to honor and happiness a tenant of the tomb, we mourn that man "cometh forth as a flower, and is cut down."  When in the glory of manhood, he "wasteth away," how mysterious the Providence that "destroyeth the hope of man."  But when the aged patriarch bends beneath the weight of fourscore years, when his trembling steps betray the gradual but certain decay of nature, when his frame is wasted by disease, and live becomes a weariness, when, as the hireling longs for the evening's shadow, he sighs at the lingering steps of death, we rejoice that we are but pilgrims here, and when the "silver cord is loosed," however great may be our loss, we raise our thoughts in thankfulness to God, that the spirit is at rest.  Such should be our feelings in the present instance.  The subject of these remarks had languished for a year, but the last three months, his sufferings were beyond description.  Hope for his recovery had long ceased to be cherished, and the wish to have his life prolonged, was but to prolong his sufferings.  Col. Burnett was born in Sunbury, and moved to the County upwards of forty years since, at a time when it was a frontier settlement.  He served in the Indian War of 1787 or 1788, in which he received his commission and title from the State of Georgia.  For eighteen years, he represented Glynn County in the State Legislature, and no man ever enjoyed the confidence of his fellow citizens in a higher degree than himself, and well he might.  His bosom burned with the devotion of a patriot, he loved his country and at any moment, even when his eyes were dimmed with age, and the vigor of them was gone, have perilled for her (can not read)...his fortune, and his honor.  He (can not read)..-tian; for more than twenty years (can not read)...an upright member of the Baptist Church .  His was the religion that (can not read)...God and man.  Few have more (can not read)...observed the "golden rule" than he.  (can not read)...ear was ever open to the cry of (causes), and his hand ever ready to relieve.  His (can not read)...were committed to the dust at 4 o'clock (can not read)...on Sunday the 29th of July, attended by a large number of friends, whose tearful eyes and swelling bosoms denoted how sincerely they respected him.  Peace to thine ashes, and to thy soul the approbation of the God.  (Communicated)

BURNETT, John James
The Savannah Daily News; Friday 31 January 1862; pg. 2 col. 3

            Died, at Dent’s battery on St. Simons Island, Ga., on the evening of the 11th January, after an illness of twenty-four hours, JOHN J. BURNETT, twenty-three years and four months of age.  The deceased was the youngest son of the late John Burnett, deceased.  At the time of his death he was in the service of the Confederate States, being a member of the Glynn Guards.  This sudden and mysterious dispensation of Providence has bereft an aged and devoted mother, and a large circle of relatives and friends, of one whose loss can never be supplied, and whose memory will ever be cherished.  Of a generous and charitable disposition he ministered to the distressed and sympathized with the afflicted and always exhibited an impressive regard for the welfare of others.  Truthful and candid, he abhorred deception, and never, by word or deed, detracted from the fair fame of another.  There was about him that nobleness of soul, sincerity of purpose and dignity of manner which commanded the admiration and secured the esteem of all who knew him.  Thus, in the spring tide of life, in the midst of health and prosperity, and with the prospect of long and happy years before him, he died, leaving those that are near and dear to tread the pathway of life in sorrow and gloom, and many to mourn that one so good, so young and so kind had departed forever.
            Verily, as the flowers of the field, we spring up and are cut down.  J.

THE DEATH OF MRS. BURROUGHS—Has Carried Sadness to Many Homes in Brunswick.

            Mrs. William Berrien Burroughs died at her home in this city yesterday morning after a few days illness, during which the utmost skill of Doctor A.C. Blain, Dr. Hugh Burford, Dr. R.E.L. Burford, Dr. Cates and Dr. Blanton of Brunswick, and Dr. R.B. Burroughs, of Jacksonville, since Sunday was exerted to save her.
            This passing away of such an estimable one has cast a shadow over the people of Brunswick and the heartfelt sympathy of the community is now being extended to Doctor Burroughs, her sisters, and his children in their hour of sorrow.
            Mrs. Burroughs was born June 15, 1844, and her life had been filled with such good deeds as to endear her memory forever in the hearts of the people who knew her.  Since 1872 she has been the devoted wife of a loving husband and there was no home in Brunswick where the sunshine of life and happiness was more noticeable than in her own prior to this last illness.  Her husband and six children, and two sisters survive her.  The children are Miss Mary McNish, Miss Lilla Hazelhurst [sic], and Mrs. Clyde Afton Taylor, Mrs. William B., Jr., Mr. Leighton H. and Mr. Mac Burroughs.  The surviving sisters are Misses Mary R. and Sallie E. Hazelhurst.  The funeral services will be held this morning at 10 o’clock from St. Mark’s Episcopal church, Rev. W.A. Ramsey officiating.  The active pallbearers will be Mr. Hiram J. Read, Judge Horace Dart, Mr. William Nightengale [sic], Col. John E. duBignon, Mr. Frank D. Aiken, Capt. W.F. Symons, Dr. D.D. Atkinson and Col. H.F. Dunwody.  The interment will be in Palmetto cemetery.  The honorary escort will be the physicians who attended her in her last illness.
            By the death of Mrs. William Berrien Burroughs, the people of this community have received a sad shock, which will linger long in their memory, and add to the regret that has shadowed many homes here since the New Year dawned.  Mrs. Burroughs was one of the best known and most estimable of the ladies who, in years gone by, were the mainstay of all that was good and noble in woman kind, and her influence for good upon the young people of this community, as well as her charitable deeds, and loving thoughtfulness of the poor and needy, were examples of the nobleness and generosity of those natures who add to the sunlight and happiness of mortals here below.  The greater portion of her married life was spent in Brunswick, and from the hospitable home, where the roof [illegible] sheltered a family devoted to one another, there radiated an influence for good that was felt around many of the less pretentious firesides of this city.  As a wife, she was all that a husband’s loving helpmeet could be; and as a mother, her devotion to those children who were permitted to spend the last moments with her, was sublime in its unselfish affection.
            During her illness there were but few who realized, until nearly the end, that its nature was so likely to terminate fatally; and when a realization that the end was drawing near dawned upon many who knew and loved her, there were heartfelt prayers sent above for her safe return to the life that she had made so glad for others.
            Unselfish in her devotion to those who were the recipients of her bountiful kindliness and with a heart pulsating in sympathy for the poor and heartsick she was an Angel of goodness to many who have passed through the Valley of Despair and cheered many lonely hearts to a feeling of encouragement that enabled them to again face a life made desolate by the loss of some loved one.  Thus it is that now, her own grief stricken ones can but know the sympathy which all who knew her feel for them, in their hour of loneliness, and it can but be comforting to them to realize that although she who gave them all that her life held of love and devotion has passed to her Eternal reward the good deeds with which her days were unceasingly numbered will live forever in the memory of those who were the recipients of them and forever perpetrate in their minds the feeling which only the gentle loveliness of a good and Holy woman can engender.  It is difficult in times of distress to offer comfort to bleeding hearts but as through the mist of darkened days that are to come, those left here to mourn realize all that their loved one was to others, they will then know what many hearts are weeping in silent sympathy for them now and adding their prayers to those that have gone Heavenward for her Everlasting Glory in the Home beyond the skies where God rules to the Glory of all His people.

MAC H. BURROUGHS PASSES AWAY HERE—Well Known Insurance Man Died Unexpectedly Saturday Night.

            Mac H. Burroughs, prominent Brunswick insurance man, who was born and reared in this city, died unexpectedly at his Windsor Park home Saturday night.
            Mr. Burroughs several months ago suffered a serious illness.  However, he recovered and while not enjoying the best of health in recent weeks, he had not been confined to his bed, and was at his desk as usual Saturday.  About 10:30 o’clock, and died within a few minutes, before a physician could be called.
            Mr. Burroughs was born in Brunswick July 22, 1885, and he had resided here all of his life.  He was a member of an old and prominent south Georgia family, being a son of the late Dr. William B. and Mrs. Elizabeth Hazlehurst Burroughs, pioneer south Georgia residents.
            Mr. Burroughs was married to Miss Eliza Fenton McIntosh on October 12, 1912.
            Practically all of his life he had been engaged in the insurance business and since 1926 had been a member of the firm of Parker, Burroughs and Way.  He was well known among an unusually large number of friends, who were grieved and shocked to learn of his death.
            Mr. Burroughs is survived by his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Frances Baker, of this city, and Mrs. Charles Wells, of Daytona Beach, Fla.; two sons, Swinton Burroughs of this city, and Mac. H. Burroughs, Jr., of Miami; two sisters, Mrs. Mary B. Deming of this city, and Mrs. C.A. Taylor, Sr., of St. Marys, and five grandchildren.
            Funeral services were held at St. Marks Episcopal church, of which he had been a life long member, at 4 o’clock this afternoon conduced by the Rev. Talbert Morgan, and burial was in Palmetto cemetery.  The following served as pallbearers:  J.C. Kaufman, Richard Peters, Wright Parker, Norman A. Way, Potter F. Gould and Nat Nightingale.  The funeral was in charge of Mortician Edo Miller.

DR. W.B. BURROUGHS CALLED BY DEATH—Prominent Brunswick Citizen Died Sunday.  Large Funeral Occurred Yesterday Afternoon.

            Dr. William Berrien Burroughs, one of Brunswick’s best known and most highly esteemed citizens, and one of the south’s greatest historians, passed away at his home in this city shortly before 5 o’clock Sunday afternoon, after an illness which has extended over a period of several months.
            Dr. Burroughs’ condition had been serious for several weeks.  A short time ago he lingered for a few days between life and death and then came a change for the better, but attending physicians realized that the improvement was only temporary and that the end was only a question of days.
            Dr. Burroughs was known in every section of the south; he was a gentleman of the old school, and during the latter years of his life a great deal of his time has been devoted to collecting Georgia history, etc., and probably no man in the country was better posted on records than he.  His collection of old relics, documents, etc., is probably the best to be found anywhere in the country.  Many of those old papers were purchased by him at a high figure and were greatly prized by him.
            Dr. Burroughs took part in the war between the states as a Confederate soldier and displayed gallantry for the cause he loved so well.  He has always been a prominent figure at Confederate reunions, and was head of Camp Jackson, United Confederate veterans held here and over the state and was largely responsible for the success of the state reunion here a few years ago.
            A student and constant reader, Dr. Burroughs was generally considered an authority on any historical subject particularly if it related to Georgia or the south Atlantic coast.  He often contributed articles to the newspapers and they were read with widespread interest.  He was an unusually interesting conversationalist.  His wide knowledge of the history of the state and country made him almost unequaled in this respect.
            Dr. Burroughs was interested in art and agriculture affairs also.  For years he was in charge of the art exhibit at the Georgia state fair held annually in Macon.  Dr. Burroughs also had the distinction of belonging to the Society of the Revolutionary War.  Only a few men in the state enjoyed this honor.
            Dr. Burroughs was born in Savannah April 7, 1842.  He resided in that city until the outbreak of the civil war.  He was educated at the old Oglethorpe University, and for a number of years after the war practiced medicine in Camden county.  In 1881 he removed to Brunswick and has since resided here.  In January 1872, he was married to Miss Eliza Pettingill Wilson Hazlehurst, of Waynesville.  She was a daughter of Leighton Wilson Hazlehurst, a well known South Georgia rice planter.
            During his long residence in Brunswick, Dr. Burroughs had been identified with all movements in the city which had as their object the bettering of conditions in the city and county.  He was for years president of the local agricultural association and had also held offices in the state organization.
            He is survived by six children:  Mrs. C.W. Deming, of Tulsa, Okla.; W.B. Jr., of Jacksonville and Mrs. Clyde A. Taylor, Miss Lilla Burroughs, L.H. and M.H. Burroughs of this city.
            The funeral was held yesterday afternoon from St. Mark’s Episcopal church, Rev. R.E. Boykin officiating, and hundreds of Brunswickians were present to pay a last tribute to this popular citizen.  The interment was in Palmetto cemetery.  The active pallbearers were A.J. Crovatt, J.P. Twomey, J.E. duBignon, J.T. Lambright, H.S. McCrary, P.W. Fleming.  The honorary pallbearers were Dr. G.V. Cate, Dr. J.A. Butts, Dr. H.M. Branham, Dr. D.D. Atkinson, W.H. Berrie, Wm. Nightingale, C. Downing, Camp Jackson, Confederate veterans, of which he was the commander for so many years and Oglethorpe lodge Knights of Pythias, of which he was a member, attended in a body.
            The News joins the many other friends in extending condolence to the family.

DIED AT THE AGE OF NINETY—Death of a Negro Who Went Through the Seminole War.

            Died, on the 25th of February, 1886, at New Hope Plantation, on St. Simons Island, after twelve months’ suffering, Chance Burton, aged nearly ninety, the body servant of Col. Hazzard, throughout the Seminole war and the campaign of 1812, and subsequently the trusted head overseer and driver upon his estate on St. Simons Island.  In proof of the respect and attention of the Hazzard family, it was especially stipulated upon the sale of the Hazzard plantation to J.C. Chapman in 1881, that Uncle Chance should have a home upon the estate for his life time.  His friendship, advice and integrity were appreciated by Mr. Chapman, who mourns the loss in him of an honorable, true and upright friend.  The burial service in accordance with Uncle Chance’s own wish, was read by Mr. Chapman, whose three-year-old son, Master B., laid a cross of spring flowers on “grandpa’s” grave.  Over 100 persons attended the funeral in the picturesque negro cemetery on the plantation, which, out of respect to his memory, will now shortly be enclosed by the descendants of those who lie in this “God’s acre.”—Brunswick Advertiser.
