Jacobs, who was struck by an automobile near the cypress mills a week ago, an account of which was published in The News at the time, passed away at his home yesterday morning shortly before 1 o’clock at his pretty country home on the Cypress Mills road, as a result of the injuries he received in the accident.  Mrs. Jacobs, who also suffered a broken arm and other injuries in the accident, is improving.

BROKE HIS NECK

            Mr. Solomon Pye, from Pye, Wayne county, Ga., thus writes under date of April 12th, 1884:
            MR. EDITOR:  On the 10th inst., a youngster by the name of Charley Whealer, about 17 years of age, was riding on the tongue of the timber wagon of S.P. O’Quinn, and by an accident lost his balance, and fell off, the wheel passing over his neck and, producing instant death.
            He claimed to be from Brunswick, Ga., without any living parents, and only one sister, and that she is living in Brunswick, Ga., with one Dr. Yates.  He said he was originally from Rhode Island.
            He apparently being entirely destitute, the good citizens met and buried him in Piney Grove church yard, Mr. I.K. Reddish, J.P. furnishing him with a very decent burial suit.  He appeared to be a boy of some education, was a good penman, and conducted himself in a genteel manner.  If any further information is needed I will cheerfully give it.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 26 April 1884; pg. 3 col. 2

IDENTIFIED

            The boy Charley Whealer who was killed last week by being run over by a timber cart, near No. 5, E.T.V. & Ga. R.R., proves to be Charley Joerger, of this city, who it seems was working for Mr. S.P. O’Quinn, under the name of Charley Whealer.  Dr. Joerger, his adopted father, seeing the notice, went up to ascertain if it was his boy, and was thoroughly satisfied of his identity, the neighbors all recognizing his picture as being the boy who was killed.  The citizens of the neighborhood, and particularly Mr. Reddish and Mrs. Wilson, took charge of the poor fellow’s remains and gave them a decent burial, for all of which the Dr. requests us to extend to them his heartfelt thanks and appreciation.

SUDDEN DEATH

            Dr. R.H. Johnson died early Wednesday morning after an attack of acute indigestion.  The remains were taken to Brunswick where they were buried.  Services were held at Asbury church in the morning conducted by the pastor Rev. G.H. Lennon.  The services were largely attended, and there was a great manifestation of esteem and regret for the sudden demise of the doctor.  Dr. Johnson came here several years ago from Brunswick and entered with vim into the practice of his profession.  He located his office in a section where much good could be done, and he did it in a way that endeared him to the people especially of that locality.  It is said that he did much philanthropic work in his profession.  The death of a man like him is a distinct loss to a community.  He left a wife, children and other relatives, all of whom have been extended sympathy by numerous friends.

NEGRO IS SLAIN, POLICEMAN SHOT IN PISTOL FRAY—Patrolman Sapp Accidentally Hit By Fellow Officer

            Five police bullets struck an armed negro resisting arrest here last night.  The negro died three hours later in City Hospital.
            Officer Leonard C. Sapp was hit in the arm by a fellow officer’s bullet which first passed through the negro.  The wound was minor and the bone was not struck.
            The shooting took place near a residence at Norwich street lane and M street at 7:55 p.m.
            Chief J.E. Register said the negro, Will Johnson, 40, pulled a pistol when officers observed him looking toward a house in a suspicious manner.  Sapp grappled with the negro as he pointed his weapon toward the other officer, W.W. Woodham.  Woodham fired five times, all bullets striking the negro and one also hitting Sapp.
            A coroner’s inquest has been ordered to clarify incidents leading to the shooting.
            Officer Sapp gave the following account:
            “Officer Woodham and I were patrolling through Norwich street lane about 7:55 p.m. when we saw a negro man whom we did not know on M street looking toward a house.  The negro was acting in a suspicious manner so we went out to investigate him.
            “We pulled up side of him and I stepped out of the car by the negro, who started walking toward the rear of the car.  I called the negro and he put his hand under his coat.  I started fighting to hold the negro and I told Officer Woodham to look out as the negro had a pistol.
            “I was trying to hold the negro’s arm down as he was trying to point the pistol at Woodham.  Woodham started firing at the negro and kept firing until the negro dropped the gun.
            “The negro asked me to let him lie down, which I did.  We found that the negro’s name is Will Johnson.  He had a Smith and Wesson .38 calibre revolver, loaded with five cartridges.”
            Johnson was taken to City Hospital, where he died at 10:30.  His home was at 2118 Lee street.

Death of an Aged Lady

            The little village of Waynesville was saddened on the 4th Inst. by the announcement of the death of Miss Jane Johnson, and amiable Christian lady of that place.  She died on her 90th birthday.  The deceased was a sister of Mrs. McNish, the mother of Mrs. Leighton W. Hazlehurst, of Waynesville.  In her death the community has lost a worthy member and the church a warm supporter, but she has gained her crown.

DEATH OF MRS. JOHNSON

            The remains of Mrs. Mary Tallulah Johnson, wife of Dr. J.M. Johnson of Scriven county, reached this city on last Wednesday morning, and was buried from the Episcopal church of this city.  Mrs. Johnson, nee Mrs. E.A. Thomas, was a daughter of Judge D.J. Dillon, our townsman.  Up to the hour of her death she was enjoying excellent health.  A short while after breakfast she was suddenly taken ill with a congestive chill.  Her husband, who was out upon his farm, was summoned at once; also other medical assistance, but nothing could be done to bring about reaction and in a few hours she passed away.  Thus another home has been saddened, and another loving husband left alone in the journey of life.  To him, although a stranger to us, we extend our sincerest sympathy.

LAY DEAD TWENTY-SIX HOURS—A Negro Dies All Alone in his House on A Street Lane.

            Albert Jones, colored, an employee of Dr. W.B. Burroughs, was found dead this morning in his house, corner of A street land and H street.
            Jones did not show up for work at Dr. Burroughs’ residence yesterday.  This morning, as he still did not appear, he was sent for.  The woman who acted as the messenger found the door of Jones’ house locked, and, on forcing entrance, found the old negro’s body lying on the floor, clothed in nothing but a shirt.
            Coroner Jennings was notified, but no inquest was held, as it was evident that the deceased had died of heart disease.  He occupied the house alone, and death evidently occurred Saturday night.
            Jones was a member of the colored lodges of Odd Fellows, but they have refused to bury him, as he was not in good standing.  The city will have to pay for his funeral.
            At 3 o’clock this afternoon the body was still lying as it had been found and, as a very unpleasant stench was beginning to emanate from it, the neighbors were making a stout kick.  He has been dead almost thirty-six hours, and ought to be interred at once.

A SAD DEATH—We regret to learn the death of W. EDGAR JONES, Esq., of Brunswick, Georgia.  Mr. Jones was a son of Dr. J.S. JONES, of McDuffie county, but had moved to Brunswick to practice his profession—the law.  There he fell early victim to the scourge which is now devastating the coast of Georgia and South Carolina.  He was a young man of great promise and had already achieved distinction in his profession.  By his death the State has lost a son who would have done her great honor in the future.  We tender our profoundest sympathy to his family and trust that the Doer of all Good will pour balm into the hearts that have been sorely afflicted.

THREE KILLED IN TWO AUTO MISHAPS HERE LAST NIGHT

            Three persons were dead today as the result of two automobile accidents last night and this morning.
            Two elderly Negro pedestrians were killed just prior to 7 p.m. yesterday when they were struck by an automobile on highway U.S. 84 ten miles north of Brunswick.
            A North Brunswick housewife, Mrs. Annie Myrle R. Dubberly, 26, was killed early today when her automobile crashed into a ditch within the city limits on Altama Avenue.
            The three fatalities brought to 16 the number of traffic deaths in Glynn County thus far this year.  In the same period of time, the Georgia State Patrol post here said traffic deaths in its area stand at 45, as opposed to 26 for the same period last year.
            County police investigating the U.S. 84 accident said Mrs. Clara Joyner, 60 of Hill Cabin Road, and Willie Thomas, 60, of Rt. 1, were killed instantly when struck last night by an automobile operated by Harold Glynn Cope, 18, of Rt. 1, Brunswick.
            In a report filed by Lt. A.L. Lokey and patrolmen McDowell and Buck, Cope was said traveling north on the highway when the two Negroes were struck and killed.  The two were said to have been in the northbound traffic lane.
            Police reported the two were decapitated and torsos of each cut into two sections, strewn along some 400 feet of the highway.
            Young Cope, driving a 1968 model automobile, was charged with driving 70 miles an hour in a 50-mile-an-hour zone, and with two counts of involuntary manslaughter.
            He reportedly told police he did not see the couple, but heard and felt the impact as his vehicle struck them.
            The Dubberly death occurred at 4:20 a.m. today as the automobile the young mother was driving crossed Altama Avenue from Townsend Street and crashed into a ditch.
            The car came to rest in the ditch on its right side in approximately one foot of water.  The 1966 model car received some $1,700 damage.  City patrolmen H.G. Guinn and R.L. Yawn investigated.
            Mrs. Dubberly, a resident of 1750 Townsend Street, was pronounced dead on arrival at the Brunswick hospital.  She had been a resident of Brunswick for the past 12 years.
            She is survived by her husband, Charles E. Dubberly and a daughter, Susan Beth Dubberly, of Brunswick; her mother, Mrs. Grace R. Reynolds, Uvalda; a sister, Mrs. Betty Kinchen, Uvalda; four brothers, Billy, Bobby, Elbert and Jimmy Reynolds, all of Uvalda; several nieces and nephews.
            Funeral arrangements, under the direction of Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home, are incomplete and will be announced later.
