GAITHERS, child
The Atlanta Constitution; Tuesday 15 May 1888; pg. 2 col. 1

            A homicide occurred in the Ardock settlement, in McIntosh county, early in the last week, but was not discovered until the middle of this week.  Two small colored boys, Cain Gaithers and his brother, went into the woods with a gun and a hoe, and Cain came back without the gun and hoe, and without his brother, for whom eh could not account, saying his brother had gone to a neighbor’s house.  His father sent him for the hoe and gun, which he brought, saying he had seen nothing of his brother, but had seen his tracks.  Several days after this he and his father were going through the woods, when Cain acted queerly at a certain point, and being sent to a point at which he had been seen shying around, the buzzards rose up and the father went up and found the other boy shot through the head and covered behind a lot with bushes.  The boy, Cain, admitted he had killed his brother, and says it was an accident, but the circumstances upon the coroner’s inquest was such that the boy was committed by the coroner to await the action of the grand jury.  Cain seems to be about eleven or twelve years old.

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.

MRS. J.P. GOLDEN PASSED AWAY—Died Last night After a Long and Serious Illness.

            The many friends of Mrs. J.P. Golden will be shocked to learn of her death, which occurred last night shortly after 11 o’clock at her home on Union street.
            Though Mrs. Golden had been seriously ill for some time, her death came as somewhat of a surprise as she was reported to be resting easier yesterday and some little improvement was evident in her condition, but a turn for the worse came last night, she had been in bad health for a period covering many months, and although everything possible was done for her it was to no avail.  Trips to various sections and the best of medical skill failed to restore her health, and for the past few months her life has gradually ebbed away.
            The news of the death of this estimable woman will cause universal sorrow in Brunswick and elsewhere where she was known and loved by many friends.  She was an old resident of Brunswick, and was noted for her many acts of kindness, a charity-worker and a woman who was loved and esteemed by all who knew her.
            She is survived by her husband, Engineer John P. Golden, and two sons, Messrs. P.M. and E.G. Golden, besides a large number of other relatives in this city and elsewhere.
            The funeral will take place tomorrow morning at 10 o’clock from St. Xavier’s Catholic church.
            The News joins the many other friends in extending condolence to the grief-stricken family.

AN OLD CITIZEN PASSES TO REST—L. GOLDSMITH, ILL FOR MANY MONTHS DIED YESTERDAY AFTERNOON

            L. Goldsmith, one of Brunswick’s oldest and best known citizens, passed away at the residence of J.D. Ross, on Norwich street, where he had rooms, yesterday at 3:25 o’clock, after an illness of two or three years.  While Mr. Goldsmith’s death came rather sudden, still his condition has been serious for many weeks.  HE was, however, up and about his room yesterday, when he was stricken suddenly, passing away in a very short time.
            Mr. Goldsmith has been in failing health for many years, and for the past several months he has not left his room.
            The deceased was 76 years of age.  He was born in New York city, spending his early life in the metropolis.  In 1881 he removed to Brunswick, and since that time he has been closely identified with the business interests of the city, always joining in every movement that meant something good for the city of his adoption.  For two years he was a member of Brunswick’s city council and has occupied other positions of honor and trust in the city.
            “Pap” Goldsmith, as he was familiarly called by his hundred [sic] of friends, was a big-hearted jovial man, known by practically every resident of the city.  In his death Brunswick loses one of her best known business men, and the members of the family have the sympathy of the entire city.  He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. H.L.B. Wiggins, of Savannah; Mrs. A.B. Harby of Sumter, S.C., and Mrs. John C. Lehman of this city.
            Funeral arrangements had not been completed last night, but the interment will take place sometime Sunday afternoon.  The funeral announcement will be made later.

DEATH CALLS A TRULY WELL LOVED CITIZEN—Col. Charles Porter Goodyear Passed Away Early Yesterday Morning—Was Brunswick’s Truest Friend—His Long Life in Brunswick Was One of Continual Sacrifice to the Interest of the City—Funeral Will Occur This Afternoon—Body to Be In State at Elks’ Home.

            Col. Charles Porter Goodyear, well beloved citizen, Brunswick’s best friend, after an illness covering several months passed away at the family residence at five o’clock yesterday morning.  Col. Goodyear has been ill for three months suffering with a complication of heart troubles, but is has only been within the past few weeks that his condition grew alarming and that physicians felt that the end was in sight.
            He grew some better during the Christmas holidays and was strong enough to visit the home of his daughter, Mrs. W.E. Mitchell, who resides near the city, but on returning he grew worse again, was forced to his bed and has gradually grown weaker until the end came and quietly and peacefully in the early hours of yesterday morning, the great soul returned to the God from whence it came.
            Than Col. Goodyear Brunswick had no better citizen, no abler champion and no more eloquent or powerful advocate.  He came to this city from his home in Washington, Conn., in 1869, just after the Civil war had left a defeated people with a bitter sting in their hearts.  From the moment of his arrival, he made it his duty to endeavor to heal the wounds of war, to unite the people again and to scatter the doctrine of brotherly love.  On every occasion he preached this creed and it was finally fruitful of happy results.  He was elected clerk of Glynn Superior court in the middle seventies and was while engaged in this work that he studied law and was admitted to the bar.  He formed the firm of Goodyear and Kay and for many years it was one of the leading law firms of this entire section of the state.  Many years later the firm was broadened into that of Goodyear, Kay and Brantley, composed of the deceased, Col. W.E. Kay, now of Jacksonville and former Congressman W.G. Brantley.
            At this period in his life Col. Goodyear made up his mind that Brunswick would never be a seaport unless greater channel depths were secured on the outer harbor.  The federal government had, up to that time refused to make appropriations for the harbor and Col. Goodyear sacrificing his immense and lucrative law practice, worked for and finally obtained a government contract for the deepening of the bar.
            This proved to be the greatest sacrifice of his life, for while he obtained certain depths and really benefited the harbor, the venture was a final failure and cost him a small fortune.  The work he did there, however, was the nucleus for government aid and there is no memorial more fitting to him, than the great silent, expanse of water on the outer bar of the Brunswick harbor.
            Col. Goodyear was always a believer in the future of Brunswick; he saw with a clear vision the things of the future and it was his eloquent voice and powerful logic that first pointed the way for direct trade with the countries to the South of us.  Many years before the world’s great war made the use of all harbors a necessity, Col. Goodyear argued for direct steamship lines to the port of South and Central America.  He visited the great inland cities of the South preaching his faith in this commerce and it is a compensating fact to his friends that he lived long enough to see at least a portion of his dreams come true!
            In all of the vicissitudes that have befallen Brunswick on all of the years of his residence here he has ever been her true and devoted champion and his untimely death will be deeply mourned by the entire people of the country.
            Col. Goodyear was seventy-six years old on December 2nd last.  He was married to Miss Ella Flint of this city on September 5, 1871 and to that union four children have been born, all of whom together with Mrs. Goodyear, survive him.  They are Messrs. C.P. Goodyear, Jr., Stephen W. Goodyear and Mrs. W.E. Mitchell, all of this city and Benjamin W. Goodyear of Jacksonville.
            The funeral arrangements include a simple service at the family residence at 9 o’clock, conducted by Rev. O.P. Gilbert, of the First Baptist church.  The remains will then be removed to the Elks’ Lodge, where they will lie in state, until two o’clock this afternoon when the interment will occur at Oak Grove cemetery.  Rev. L.J. Ballard, of the First Methodist church officiating.
            The Brunswick Bar association held a meeting at noon yesterday to take action on the death of Col. Goodyear and among there things the association named the following active pall bearers, Col. W.E. Kay, Judge J.W. Bennet, Judge C.B. Conyers, Judge Max Isaac, Judge D.W. Krauss, Col. F.H. Harris and Col. J.T. Colson.  In accordance with the request of the deceased, the other members of the local bar were requested to act as honorary pall bearers.
            At the Bar association, a committee consisting of Judge J.W. Bennet, Judge C.B. Conyers and Col. F.H. Harris were named to prepare resolutions on the death of Col. Goodyear and present them to Glynn Superior court on such occasion as will suit the convenience of Judge J.P. Highsmith.
            The death of Col. Goodyear has occasioned sincere sorrow not only in this city, but all over Georgia, as a flood of telegrams from various sections of the state to the members of the family, received yesterday indicated.
            The News joins with thousands of others in extending to the members of the family, its sincere sympathy.

CHARLES P. GOODYEAR ENDS HIS LIFE AT OFFICE EARLY TODAY—Uses Small Rope to Hang Himself and is Discovered by Wife When She Visited His Office

            Driven to a point of desperation by ill health and financial reverses, Charles P. Goodyear, 58 years of age, this morning ended his life by hanging himself in the office of his plant foot of Prince street.
            That Mr. Goodyear had planned to end his troubles when he left his home this morning was indicated in notes he left and his actions after arising shortly after 6 o’clock.  He evidently went to his office to carry out plans which he had made during the night, and before he ended it all he uncovered his typewriter, wrote four notes, one to his wife, two to two business friends and the fourth, not addressed, as an explanation of the act he had planned.
            “My left eye is completely blind.  Regardless of internal and external medicines the right eye is following identically the same way.  Rather than to be blind I prefer to pass out,” read the note which he left unaddressed.  It ended with this sentence:
            “Old time customers, having got my confidence, have gone into bankrupt court, and so many of them it breaks me in these depressed times.  I do not prefer the bankrupt court as a way out.”
            Contents of the other three notes were not made public.  They were enclosed in envelopes and addressed, while the fourth was left open.  All four were tied together.
            Mr. Goodyear left his home, corner Howe and Reynolds streets, shortly before 7 o’clock this morning and went directly to his office.  Mrs. Goodyear, who assisted her husband in the operations of his business, left her home about an hour later and went to the plant.  She noticed the front door was locked.  Looking into a window, near which stands Mr. Goodyear’s desk, she was startled when the gruesome sight of her husband dangling from the end of a sash cord stared her in the face.  She was alone, but quietly called to workmen on the wharf, who immediately summoned Coroner J.D. Baldwin and he took charge of the body.
            Mr. Goodyear, securing the cord probably after he reached the plant, as it is known as “drum line” and carried by boats, climbed to the top of the building, tying one end of the rope to a rafter, permitting the end to extend to a distance of a few feet above the desk.  Then he climbed to the top of his desk, placed his head in the noose he had prepared and swung away, knowing that he would strangle to death.
            That he struggled as the end came was evidenced by the fact that one of his feet rested on the top of the desk when his body was found.  Coroner Baldwin estimated that he had been dead fro probably half an hour before Mrs. Goodyear discovered the body.
            Mr. Goodyear, who was president and active head of the Goodyear Parking Company, had been engaged in the shrimp business in Brunswick for many years, in fact, he was one of the pioneers in the prawn industry along the South Atlantic coast, and until that business received a serious set-back a few years ago his company enjoyed a profitable business.  That Mr. Goodyear has been worrying over financial matters in recent months was known to members of his family and to friends, and ill health had also caused him considerable worry.
            The deceased was a son of the late Charles P. Goodyear, prominent Brunswick attorney, who many years ago retired from a profitable practice of law to devote his time to the deepening of Brunswick[s] outer bar, and who won fame in his big undertaking.
            He is survived by his widow, his mother, four children, Miss Marie Goodyear, who is attending the Georgia State Women’s College at Milledgeville; Charles, Genevieve and Cyrus.  Two brothers, S.W., of this city, and Benjamin, of Jacksonville, and one sister, Mrs. E.W. Mitchell, of Miami, also survive.
            Funeral arrangements, in charge of Mortician Edo Miller, have not as yet been arranged, pending the arrival of relatives in the city.  It was announced, however, that the funeral will be held on Wednesday, the hour and other details to be announced later.

            Charles P. Goodyear, 28, son of Mrs. C.P. Goodyear, of Sea Island, who spent practically all of his life in Brunswick, died in Tampa, Fla., Thursday night.  Funeral services will be held here Monday.
            Mr. Goodyear, member of a well known Brunswick family, was born here and attended local public schools.  He was a grandson of the late Col. Charles Porter Goodyear, for whom a Brunswick housing project was recently named, and who for years was one of Brunswick’s best known residents.  His father, the late C.P. Goodyear, Jr., was also a prominent resident of the city for many years.  Mr. Goodyear had been residing in Tampa for a number of years.  His death, it was stated, followed a short illness.
            He is survived by his wife, two children, Judith Lanier, 3; and Charles Porter, 9 months; two sisters, Mrs. J.W. Skipper, of this city, and Mrs. Vassa Cate, Jr., of Miami, and two brothers, Lieut. Cyrus S. Goodyear, U.S. Army, and William Henry Goodyear, Sea Island.
            Funeral services will be held at St. Xavier’s Catholic church Monday morning at 10 o’clock, to be conducted by the Rev. Father Leo F. Ziebarth, S.M., and burial will be in the family lot in Oak Grove Cemetery.  Arrangements are in charge of Mortician Edo Miller.

MRS. C.P. GOODYEAR, AN AGED RESIDENT, PASSES AWAY TODAY

            Mrs. Emma Flint Goodyear, widow of the late Col. Charles P. Goodyear, one of Brunswick’s oldest and best known women, passed away at 7 o’clock this morning at the residence of her daughter-in-law, Mrs. C.P. Goodyear, Jr.  Mrs. Goodyear had been in a serious condition for several days, a number of her relatives having been called here a few days ago because of her condition.
            Born in Connecticut, Mrs. Goodyear removed to Brunswick with her family when a small girl and has made her home here ever since.  As Miss Emma Flint, she was a popular member of Brunswick’s younger society set and her wedding to the late Col. Goodyear was a big social event.  Col. Goodyear for years was one of the best known attorneys in this section of the state, and after practicing here for years he abandoned that profession to devote his time to the port of Brunswick and secured a contract for deepening the Brunswick bar, in which he was engaged for many months, and while he succeeded in securing the necessary depths, the undertaking was a financial failure.
            Mrs. Goodyear, during her early life, was a leader in social, church and club circles of Brunswick.  She was highly esteemed by an unusually large number of friends, who will be grieved to hear of her death.
            The deceased is survived by three children, Stephen W. Goodyear, of this city, Mrs. W.E. Mitchell, of Miami, Fla., and Ben F. Goodyear, of Jacksonville.  Nine grandchildren and one great grandchild also survive.
            Funeral services will be held from the residence, corner Howe and Reynolds streets, Thursday afternoon at 3 o’clock, conducted by Rev. C.C. Davison of the First Baptist church, with Mortician Edo Miller in charge.  Interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery, where her late distinguished husband is buried.  The following friends will act as pall bearers:  John T. Whittle, Judge C.B. Conyers, Millard Reese, Harry Parker, R.E. Jennings, Hugh Flanders.

LITTLE MARY GOODYEAR PASSED AWAY YESTERDAY—After Short Illness, Bright Little Girl Passes to Rest.

            The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. C.P. Goodyear, Jr., will be grieved to learn of the death of Mary Elizabeth, their little three-year-old daughter, who passed away yesterday shortly after noon at the family residence.
            The little girl had been ill for only a few days, suffering from typhoid pneumonia.  It was last Thursday that a physician was summoned and at first her case was not considered serious, but a turn for the worst occurred yesterday morning and the end soon came.
            The loss of this pretty and bright little girl will be a very serious one to her parents.  She was an unusually popular little girl among her young playmates.
            The funeral will be held this morning from the family residence on Oglethorpe street.  The interment will be in Palmetto cemetery.
            The parents have the sympathy of many friends in the sad bereavement.

GOULD, Joseph Edward
The Brunswick News; Tuesday 1 November 2011; pg. 4A cols. 1-2

            Capt. Joseph Edward Gould U.S. Navy (Retired), a veteran of World War II, Korea and Vietnam, and devout poet and unselfish volunteer, died Oct. 6, 2011, in Fairhope, Ala.  He was two weeks shy of his 91st birthday.
            Capt. Gould was born in Brunswick to Potter and Lois Gould who were lifelong residents of Brunswick and St. Simons.  He graduated from Glynn Academy in 1938 and attended Georgia Tech for one year prior to attending and graduating from the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md., in June of 1942 with the class of 1943.  His class was one of the first to be educated and pushed through in three years to support the demands of the war.  His war service included duty in the USS Saratoga (CV-3) and submarine school and service in the USS S-15 (SS-120) and USS S-11 (SS-116).  Captain Gould was part of a special crew that took a surrendered Japanese submarine to Hawaii from the deep western Pacific at the end of the war.  Other service included duty in surface combatants during the Korean war and naval intelligence during the Vietnam war with a specialty in Russia and the Soviet Union.  Captain Gould would command the USS LSM-449, destroyer escort USS Silverstein (DE-534), destroyer USS Brush (DD-745) and Mine Squadron Nine during his illustrious naval career.
            Capt. Gould was accomplished in many areas and after his Navy retirement, he became a real estate broker owning his own firm, Shorebird Realty, in San Clemente, Calif.  He taught at San Clemente High School for a decade, as the lead naval science instructor for the school’s Navy Junior ROTC program, where he mentored numerous students and watched many of them launch successful careers both in and out of the military.  Additionally, Capt. Gould was a voracious volunteer who served as Church Council member of many churches and vestries, chairman, of the Interfaith Serviceman’s Center—an oasis for Vietnam-era Marines and sailors serving in the San Clemente area during the Vietnam war, as well as other volunteer endeavors.  Most noteworthy, was Capt. Gould’s outreach to enlisted Marines,, whom he hosted in his home over a plethora of holidays to ensure these young people had a home cooked meal during a holiday spent away from loved ones.  He treated all these Marines like family.
            Capt. Gould’s personal joy was writing, and he published many of his works and song lyrics through the years, to the enjoyment of his family and close friends.  His poetry was an inspiration to many special occasions and included serious pieces about patriotism, faith, love and general humor.  His wit and wisdom were legendary and he influenced many individuals of all ages with his infectious enthusiasm, positive outlook on life and sound perspectives on many matters.  His dear friends at Homestead Village and in the Fairhope community treasured his resilience, words and warmth for the five years of his residence there.  Capt. Gould devoted time each morning to his crossword puzzles, always using an ink pen—as he rarely, if ever, made a mistake.
            Capt. Gould was married twice, to Ellen Winger and to Katie Gould of Ocean Springs, Miss.  He is survived by a son, Ronald, as well as a stepson, Rear Admiral Sonny Masso U.S.N. (Retired) and five grandchildren, Prom, Mina, Gabriel, Alexis and Colin, as well as his brother David of Brunswick.  Memorial services will be at 2 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 3, 2011, at Christ Church Cemetery in St. Simons Island, Georgia.
            Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

BURNED TO DEATH

            In our last issue we welcomed to our midst Mr. N.C. Greer of Pearson, Ga.  In this, we perform a sadder duty, that of sympathizing with the stricken heart.  For ere last Saturdays paper reached many of its readers, that fond father was called on to mourn the loss of his dear Bertha, a bright lovely child of eight years.  It seems that Bertha and her sister Belle, who were still in Pearson, were spending the night with a married sister, Mrs. Kirkland.  During the night the house took fire and was destroyed.  By the heroic effort on the part of young McDonald, Belle was saved but little Bertha was consumed in the flames. So much of her body was rescued from the ashes was brought to our city on Monday for interment.  May a merciful Father turn this affliction into a rich blessing.

The Columbus Enquirer-Sun (Columbus, GA); Thursday 13 October 1892; pg. 3 col. 2

            The burial of William A. Griffin, the Atlanta drummer whose body was found in the bay at Brunswick, occurred in that city Sunday morning.  Owing to the decomposition it was found impossible to ship the remains to the family burying ground at Hampton.  The Times says of this occasion:  Sunday morning, while the sun was shining brightly, a spanking fall breeze blowing and the good people of Brunswick turning out to their church worship, all that was mortal of William A. Griffin was laid to rest in the city lot out at Oak Grove cemetery, with only those present who were required to put the body in the ground.  It was a sorrowful sight.  Undertaker Moore’s wagon went through the streets carrying the body, with two men sitting on the box.  Not a carriage followed, and at the grave not a relative or friend was present.  Not a tear was shed.  The burial occurred here without ceremony, while at the homes of the deceased’s family, throughout North Georgia and Alabama, there was deepest sorrow.

WILLIAM GRIFFIN’S SUICIDE—A Note Picked Up May Throw Light Upon His Case.

            Brunswick, Oct. 19.—(Special.)—A. Bowers of 201 B street picked up a bottle that was washed ashore after the August storm, containing the following:
            “Brunswick, Ga.—This is to certify that I, William A. Griffin, will this day throw myself overboard for causes which you will never know.”
            The finding of this recalls to print the suicide of Griffin about a year ago, who held a large amount of insurance policies both accident and life.  The companies are now contesting the payment of the policies in court.
            Griffin was a brilliant young man who led a reckless life just before his death which is alleged to have been the result of his wife’s conduct.  He was well known and once tried to shoot a man in the corridor of a Gainesville hotel for alleged improper advances towards his wife.  What effect the finding of this note will have in the courts is not known.

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.

GUGEL, Mary Ann
The Georgia Gazette (Savannah, GA); Thursday 23 January 1800; pg. 3 col. 1

            Died on St. Simon’s island, Mr. Thomas Cater and Mr. William John Graves.  Last Wednesday, in this city, Mrs. Mary Ann Gugel, widow, in the 68th year of her age.
