KILLED BY LIGHTNING

            Yesterday afternoon, as a thunderstorm was coming up, Mr. John Caffin and Mr. Tinker were passing down Monk st.  Just as they arrived opposite the Catholic Church they were both felled to the ground by an electric discharge from the cloud overhead.  The lightning appeared to have struck a large oak across the street, first, and then glancing over, vented its fury on another just where the gentlemen were.  Then leaving these, sought its living prey.  Mr. Caffin was killed instantly, but Mr. Tinker, though severely shocked is recovering.  Several other parties, standing near, were stunned more or less by the stroke.  Another tree was struck a few moments later in Capt. Dure's yard, throwing splinters several inches long into the house.
            The above calamity, we believe, is sent as a warning to us all.  Heed it.

THE DEATH OF MARTIN V. CALVIN

            A famous Georgian, one who has occupied a foremost position in the state for over half a century, has passed away in the person of Martin V. Calvin, who died Sunday night at his home in Marietta at the age of 85 years.  He was carrying on at the time of his death, being state statisticians for the department of agriculture at the time.
            Hardly any man in Georgia knew more of Georgia than did Mr. Calvin.  He was always interested in public affairs, unselfish and long-serving in his devotion to the work.  When a comparatively young man he took a leading part in educational development and was superintendent of the Richmond county school system when the first free schools were established under the law.  He served Richmond county for more than a score of years in the Georgia legislature.
            His trend was toward agriculture and development from the first and this coupled with his journalistic training made him a very valuable man to the public.  During the War Between the States he was a correspondent of The Augusta Chronicle and Constitutionalist and he afterwards became an editorial writer on The Chronicle.  After he retired from the political field he was made director of the Georgia Experiment Station, at Griffin, filling that position from 1906 to 1913, then going to the place he held at the time of his death.
            In the passing of Mr. Calvin Georgia loses one of its distinguished citizens, one upon much honor had been conferred, two universities—Emory and Georgia—bestowing degrees upon him.  In the Confederate army he won distinction by his service and he was badly wounded at the battle at the battle of Franklin, Tenn.  He was no less a servant of the state in peace, than he was in war and he literally wore himself out working for the community at large, but long years and a well-ripened career was rounded out by him ere he crossed over the river.

FUNERAL YESTERDAY OF MARTIN CALVIN

            Marietta, Ga., March 7.—The funeral of Martin V. Calvin, prominent Georgian, who died here late Sunday night, was conducted at the First Methodist church, this afternoon, Rev. S.R. Belk, of Atlanta, and Rev. Emory and Rev. Robert Tatum, of Marietta officiating.
            Marietta, Ga. March 7.—(AP)—Martin V. Calvin, 85, statistician in the in the state department of agriculture, and well known as an educator, died at his home here late Sunday night.  He had been ill with pneumonia about a week.
            Mr. Calvin was credited with having established the first free school in Augusta.  He served as superintendent of the Richmond county board of education and for 22 years represented that county in the general assembly.
            He directed the Georgia experiment station at Griffin from 1906 until 1913 when he resigned to become secretary of the Waycross chamber of commerce.  In 1917 he was elected president of the Georgia Agricultural society and served in that capacity until 1919, when he became associated with the agricultural department.
            Emory university and the State university both conferred degrees upon Mr. Calvin.
            He was a senior at old Emory college when the war between the states began.  He served throughout the war and was severely wounded at the battle of Franklin, Tenn.
            While with the army Mr. Calvin acted as correspondent for The Augusta Chronicle and Constitutionalist and when peace was effected he became associated with that paper as an editorial writer.
            What is now the Augusta free school was established by Mr. Calvin as the Peabody free school.  He supported it generously and taught classes at night.  The idea of the Cenataph to Confederate dead located on Greene street in Augusta is credited to him.
            In 1916 Mr. Calvin was elected commander in chief of the United Confederate Veterans.  He and four other members of his college class were honored by the new Emory university which conferred degrees on them several years ago.  Until his last illness Mr. Calvin was quite active.  His articles on agricultural topics were featured in the Atlanta Journal.
            Mr. Calvin is survived by a son, John E. Calvin, of Eau Gallie, Fla.; three daughters, Mrs. E.M. Hafer, of Atlanta, and Mrs. C.A. McLendon, of Waynesboro, Ga., and Mrs. H.H. Morrisette, of Waynesboro, and a sister, Mrs. John M. Crowley, of Augusta.
            Mr. Calvin was born in Augusta, the son of James B. Calvin.  During his residence in Augusta he was a member of St. James Methodist church.

HORRIBLE DEATH OF COLORED MAN—John Campbell Killed on the Southern Railway—THE UNFORTUNATE MAN MANGLED—Both Legs Cut Off and Hurt Internally—Expired Half Hour After Accident.

            John Campbell, a deaf and dumb negro, employed by the Hilton & Dodge Lumber Company, at the Cypress Mills in this city, was run over and killed by a Southern Railway train last night.

            The cars were moving and caught him, dragging him several hundred feet.  His cries attracted attention and finally the train stopped and the man was carried to his home on south Albany street where he died in a few minutes.

CAMPBELL, Nettie
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 6 October 1883; pg. 6 cols. 2 & 3

            Mrs. Morgan, of Marion, Fla., arrived in our city last Tuesday, via Waycross.  She comes to mingle her tears with those of her family over their recent sad afflictions.  Mrs. Morgan is a daughter of Mrs. Spears, of this city, consequently an aunt of Misses Maud Miller and Nettie Campbell, whose deaths we chronicle in this issue.

A SADDENED HOUSEHOLD—A single visit of the angel of death to any individual home brings with it sadness enough for a life-time, but when he comes twice in forty-eight hours, and strikes down the fairest flowers, the stroke is almost past endurance.  Such a sad fate has befallen the home of our townsman, J.J. Spears.  On Friday night last the spirit of little Nettie Campbell passed away, and on the succeeding Sabbath she was followed by Miss Maud Miller, both nieces of Mr. Spears, and both living under his roof.  Miss Nettie’s parents are both dead, and Miss Maud’s father, Mr. John W. Miller, has been dead a number of years, but her mother still lives to mourn the loss of her only child, who only a few days since enjoyed the blessings of full womanhood.  That is indeed a sad household, and one that calls forth the sympathy of all.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 9 July 1881; pg. 3 col. 2

SUDDEN DEATH—A very sudden death occurred in our city last Tuesday night.  During the evening the children of the family, Casey, by name (new-comers here, we understand), were playing pranks on each other, and with false faces, scaring each other, etc.  At bed-time the child in question got into bed and said something about “old booggerman,” an expression they had been using to frighten each other.  In a few moments the light was extinguished, and immediately after, the child was taken with a terrible convulsion, from which it never recovered.  It died in a very short while.  Its disease was, no dout [sic], of the heart, and was superinduced by the fright received.

DR. ALFRED CHRISTIE PASSES AWAY TODAY—Well Known Brunswick Physician Dies Following Cerebral Hemorrhage

            Dr. Alfred Christie, 66, well known and popular Brunswick physician, passed away at his home 1901 F street, at 8:30 o’clock this morning following a cerebral hemorrhage at an early hour today.
            Dr. Christie was taken ill at his office on Tuesday and was carried to his home.  His condition was not at that time considered serious but complications developed and the hemorrhage this morning proved fatal.
            Dr. Christie had practiced medicine in Brunswick for the past thirty-two years.  He graduated in 1897 at the Baltimore Physicians and Surgeons college, and after practicing here for a few years he took a post graduate course, abroad, attending college in both London and Edinburgh, Scotland.  Returning here he resumed his practice and has been engaged in it continuously ever since.  Dr. Christie had a large practice, and during all of these years he has devoted much of his time to charity work.
            The deceased was first married in this city many years ago to Miss Lee Treadwell, and by this union one son was born, Alfred Christie, Jr., who is now residing in Washington, D.C.  Several years after the death of his first wife he was married to Miss Ainslie Maxwell, of Savannah.  He is survived by his widow, his son and one adopted daughter, Miss Catherine Christie.
            Dr. Christie devoted much of his time to secret organizations and has headed a number of the orders of which he was a member.  He was a member of the Masons, J.O.U.A.M., Oglethorpe lodge, Knights of Pythias, the Odd Fellows, and also was worthy patron in the Marshes of Glynn chapter of the Eastern Star.  He was one of the oldest Masons in this city and one of the few 32nd degree members here.
            The deceased was popular among an unusually large number of friends throughout the city.  He had in years past devoted much time to civic, secret order and charity work, and he kept this interest for years, but his failing health and heavy practice in recent years caused him to discontinue much of this work.
            The funeral will be held from the residence Sunday morning at 10:00 o’clock, Undertaker Edo Miller in charge, and Rev. Royal K. Tucker, of St. Mark’s Episcopal church, conducting the service, assisted by Rev. O.P. Gilbert.  The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers:  Fred Lockwood, Dr. H.M. Branham, M.J. Welsh, J.H. Gilmore, J.K. Cornelius, C.L. Elliot.
            All members of lodges of which Dr. Christie was a member are asked to attend in a body as an honorary escort.  The Masons and Eastern Star will officiate at the grave.

DEATH OF CAPT. S.E. CLARK

            We are pained to announce the death of Capt. S.E. Clark, one of the best pilots on our bar.  Some time since he took the schooner Young America (one of our pilot boats) to Jacksonville for repairs, and was on his way home, having anchored for the night at Mayport mills, just inside of St. John’s bar.  Sometime during the night Capt. Clark was missing.  Being nearsighted it is supposed in walking the deck he struck the low railing and fell overboard, and not being able to swim was drowned.  Though not a hundred yards from shore, his body at last accounts, had not been recovered.  Capt. Patterson went down on yesterday to make all search possible for it.  With all others in this community we deeply sympathize with his wife and children in this heavy loss.

            DEATH OF GEN. CLINCH—The following resolutions have been passed by both branches of the Georgia Legislature:
            We have hard with pain and regret, of the death of General Duncan L. Clinch, distinguished for many years as an officer of the army.  He rendered valuable services, on every field of duty to which he was assigned.  Honor, gallantry, and a faithful discharge of every trust, were his shining virtues.  Virtues which go far to redeem the infirmities incident to human nature, and gild his character with an imperishable halo.  When such a man dies, the country mourns in honor of his memory.
            Be it therefore resolved, by the General Assembly, That while in life General Clinch commanded our esteem, in death we mingle our sympathies with his family, friends, and fellow citizens.
            Be it further resolved That his Excellency the Governor be requested to furnish his family with a copy of this preamble and resolution.

NEGRO KILLED BY RUNAWAY HORSE—While Driving in Country Walter Cohen Meets an Untimely Death.

            A swarm of yellow jackets attacking a horse indirectly caused the untimely death of Walter Cohen, a negro in the employ of Henry E. Taylor near Southern Junction, last Tuesday afternoon.
            The horse and buggy were hired by J.W. Walker to inspect some timber land near this city, and together with another man spent Tuesday morning on a tour of inspection.  While passing through some underbrush, the horse disturbed a large nest of yellow jackets and made a desperate attempt to shake off his tormentors.  The frantic efforts of the animal caused the buggy to be smashed against a tree and both men were thrown to the ground.  Fortunately neither was hurt.
            Cohen, who saw the animal’s distress, made an attempt to quite the horse, catching hold of the bridle.  Hundreds of yellow jackets then began to attack the negro and in his efforts to protect himself the horse turned and kicked the negro in the stomach.  He died in great agony several hours later.
            Cohen was a faithful colored employee.  He leaves a widow and six young children.  He was buried at Freedman’s Rest yesterday afternoon.

STEPHEN COLLINS DEAD—Telegraph & Messenger

            Stephen Collins, an old and estimable citizen of Macon, died in that city on Thursday, after a lingering illness of pneumonia.  Collins was elected Mayor of Macon in 1854, and served in that office for two successive terms.  He was born in Washington county on November 30, 1809, and moved to Macon about 1830, since which time he had been engaged in many enterprises conducive to the growth and prosperity of that city.  Most prominent among them was his connection with his two brothers, Robert and Charles Collins, together with Elam Alexander, who contracted to build the Central Railroad from the Oconee river to Macon at a period when the country was overwhelmed with the greatest financial panic known to its history.  In November, 1843, the road to Savannah was completed and was famous for being “the longest railroad in the world owned by one company.”
            Mr. Collins was once a citizen of this city, and always spoke in the warmest terms of our people.  He has been a reader of the ADVERTISER AND APPEAL for years, and we shall be sorry to erase his name from our list.

A GOOD LIFE ENDED—One of Brunswick’s Oldest Citizens Goes to His Eternal Rest.

            Mr. John R. Cook died yesterday afternoon at 6 o’clock at his residence on Union street of consumption.
            Mr. Cook had been ill for some time.  The dread malady that but seldom allows escape had laid its hand upon him, and with a Christian resignation he awaited the final summons.
            Mr. Cook was one of Brunswick’s pioneer business men.  He was born at Worcester, Mass., on January 15th, 1838.  His wife, who survives him, was Miss Mary E. Bellows, Holliston, Mass.  In 1866, Mr. Cook came to Brunswick, and cast his lot with our people, then just emerging from the disasters of the civil war.  He established Cook’s Mill, for a long time the most extensive business in the city.  As alderman, mayor pro tem, pilot commissioner, Mr. Cook made an admirable record for the good service and devotion to the city’s interest, and in his business, set a high standard of fidelity that made him a model to his associates.
            Mr. Cook was one of the charter members of the Presbyterian church of this city, and has served almost continually either as deacon or elder.
            Three children survive him; Cashier W.B. Cook, of the Merchants and Traders Bank, Mr. George Cook and Miss Ada Cook.
            The funeral will occur tomorrow at 12 o’clock, from the Presbyterian church, Rev. R.C. Gilmore conducting the services.  The interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery.
            A good Christian, a valuable citizen, a true man—such is his epitaph.  All of Brunswick will join in mourning the loss of one of the city’s staunchest upholders and one who was ever without reproach.

HONOR TO BRUNSWICK’S DEAD—The Funeral of Mr. John R. Cook Today—Large Attendance.

            The representative citizens of the city of Brunswick turned out at noon today to honor the memory of one of Brunswick’s oldest and most prominent citizens—the late John R. Cook.
            At noon, the funeral procession moved from the residence of the deceased on Union street, to the Presbyterian church, the house of worship which stands as a monument to the memory of Mr. Cook, its most influential builder.  Three of Brunswick’s ex-mayors, Messrs. A.J. Crovatt, J.J. Spears and M.J. Colson, the present mayor and aldermen and the other city officials in carriages formed an escort of honor to the remains.  The pall-bearers were Messrs. T.W. Dexter, A.B. Rose, C.S. Tait, J.A. Butts, G.A. Middleton and W.F. Winecoff.
            At the church the choir, consisting of Mrs. A.B. Rowe, Mrs. Dyer, Messrs. Tupper and Moore, preluded the solemn service with an appropriate dirge.  Rev. R.C. Gilmore paid an eloquent and feeling tribute to the memory of the deceased, laying especial stress on his great service to the church and the many virtues which made his life a model.
            At the conclusion of the sermon the casket, by request, was placed in the lobby of the church and uncovered, so that the many friends of the deceased, in passing out, could look for the last time on his face.  The scene was an affecting one, as business associates and friends gazed on the still features of him they had known so well.
            The long funeral cortege then followed the remains to Oak Grove cemetery, where they were interred.

MRS. COUPER DEAD

            The Brunswick Advertiser, of Saturday has this to say of a lady well-known in this section.  Mrs. Couper was the mother of Mrs. Charles S. Wylly, formerly of Darien but now of Brunswick.  The deceased leaves many relatives in this section and to them all we extend our sympathies.  The Advertiser says:  Early yesterday morning, as the old year was slipping away to the shadow land, death laid its flowers gently at the feet of one of its chosen, and she fell asleep, fell hapily [sic] into that long sweet sleep which knows no waking.  Mrs. Caroline Couper had lived, a beautiful example to all about her, through the summers and winters of eighty-seven years, and as the funeral services were conducted yesterday afternoon, the quiet sleeper, with her white hands folded on her breast, was surrounded by a large and loving family of children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  Mrs. Couper was the wife of the late James Hamilton Couper, one of the most prominent men in the history of South Georgia.  The body was taken to St. Simon [sic] Island this morning, where gentle hands laid it down in the old burying ground, and left it there, under the long gray mosses, and with the murmer [sic] of the blue Atlantic in the distance.  “And so He giveth His beloved sleep.”

MOTORCYCLE CRASH KILLS 2
by Emily Stranger

            State police are investigating a motorcycle accident that claimed the lives of two Brunswick men Saturday night at the corner of Pennick and Old Jesup roads.
            Virgil Coverdale, 38, and his nephews, 23-year-old Billy Jack Coverdale, were traveling southbound on Old Jesup Road when Virgil Coverdale, who was driving, lost control of the motorcycle around 11:46 p.m., said Jerry Taylor, an operator with the Georgia State Patrol.
            “They failed to negotiate a curve and left the roadway on the east shoulder,” said Taylor.
            When the bike hit a culvert, Billy Jack Coverdale was thrown from the back and hurled into a tree 68 feet away.
            Virgil Coverdale and the motorcycled, described as a 2006 Suzuki gsx600f, were also thrown into the air and struck a separate tree 66 feet away.
            After striking a tree, Taylor said both motorcycle and driver skidded another 33-feet before coming to a complete stop.
            Billy Jack Coverdale was pronounced dead at the scene at 12:05 a.m. by Glynn County Assistant Coroner Christ Stewart.
            Virgil Coverdale was rushed by ambulance to the emergency room of the Brunswick hospital of the Southeast Georgia Health System, where he was pronounced dead at 12:30 a.m.
            Their deaths mark the 15th and 16th vehicle fatalities this year in Glynn County.
            Taylor said both men were wearing helmets.

ACCIDENT IS FATAL TO 3-YEAR OLD GIRL—Mother Standing in Front Door When Truck Hits Her Daughter.

            A mother stood in the front door of her brick war apartment at 3533 Gordon Oaks, between Albany and Amherst streets, this morning and almost witnessed the horrible death of her pretty little three-year-old daughter, who war run over by a milk truck only a few yards from where she stood.
            The victim of the unfortunate accident was little Bessie Helen Cox, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.W. Cox.
            A mil truck of the Blackerby Dairy, driven by Johnnie Kiff, had stopped in front of the Cox apartment, and the driver went to the door and talked with Mrs. Cox concerning milk deliveries.  Little Bessie Helen and three or four other children, including Harris[?] Cox, her 10-year-old brother, were playing around the apartment.  The driver steeped back into his truck and started off.  His view was obscured by the front of the vehicle.  The little girl evident had run in front of the truck and was not seen by the driver or her mother.  As Mr. Kiff started the truck he felt it run over something.  The little brother, and another playmate, Harris O’Connor, 12, standing nearby, saw the accident and screamed, and this attracted the attention of Mrs. Cox.
            The front left wheel of the truck passed over the little girl’s head, badly crushing it, and she died almost instantly.  The driver declared he had not observed the child run in front of the truck nor did he see her until after the wheel had passed over her head.  The little playmates also said they did not notice she was in front of the truck.  The accident was investigated by Police Office [sic] Copeland.
            The driver is not being held, but Coroner J.D. Baldwin arranged to hold an inquest this afternoon.
            Mr. Cox, father of the child, is in Palatka, Fla.  He was at once notified and is now enroute to the city and funeral arrangements, in charge of the Gibson-Hart Funeral Home, have not been made pending his arrival.

FATAL ACCIDENT WAS UNAVOIDABLE

            A coroner’s jury which yesterday afternoon investigated the accident in which little 3-year-old Bessie Helen Cox, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F.W. Cox, lost her life, returned a verdict that it was an unfortunate, unavoidable accident.
            The little girl was run over in front of the family apartment at 3533 Gordon Oaks by a milk truck driven by Johnny Kiff, and the jury exonerated him of any blame for the accident

Carey’s death was mentioned as an afterthought in a news article about the recent yellow fever outbreak encompassing several counties in Georgia.
Near the end of the article was a communication from the Telegraph Messenger that read as follows:

            The Telegraph-Messenger says:  The disease is spreading all over the city, but the mortality is comparatively small.  From Monday until Thursday evening only three deaths from the fever were reported.  Cary W. Cox, well known in this city, died yesterday.  The other two were a sailor and a child.

Obituary-Cox

            Died in this city, September 28th, 1876, Harry B., son of Mr. Henry H. and Mrs. Mary Virginia Cox.
            Little Harry’s sojourn here was brief, as he had not quite completed his third year, but his affectionate little heart, his remarkable intelligence and the many little graces and ways, which in the eyes of fond parents and loving friends, were so countless and so winsome, make as aching void in the household of which he was the light and the ornament.  He was one of the many victims of the yellow fever, with which this city was so severely scourged.  But we murmur not, nor would we recall him if we could, to this world of sin and sorrow.  He is now beyond the reach of sickness, sorrow, pain and death.

            “Amid earth’s conflict, woe and care,
            When our dark path appears,
            ‘Tis sweet to know thou cans’t not share
            Our anguish and our tears-
            That on thy head shall never fall
            The storms we may not flee;
            Yes, safely sheltered from them all,
            We joy that thou are free.”
