The Brunswick News; Monday 10 April 1939; pg. 8 col. 5


            Mrs. Emma Lucas Kay, widow of Col. W.E. Kay, died in a Jacksonville hospital yesterday shortly after she suffered a cerebral hemorrhage.  Her death follows by a month and a half that of her husband, well known Jacksonville attorney and general solicitor for the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad.
            Col. and Mrs. Kay resided in Brunswick for a long number of years, and both were popular among an unusually large number of friends here.
            A native of Charleston, S.C., Mrs. Kay removed with her parents to Brunswick where her father, the Rev. Henry Lucas, served as rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal church for a quarter century.  She removed to Jacksonville in 1906, when Col. Kay was appointed assistant general counsel of the Coast Line.
            Survivors include a son, William Archibald Kay, of New Jersey; and two daughters, Mrs. Edward Englis, of Miami, and Mrs. J. Wiley Pope, of Jacksonville.
            Funeral services will be held here tomorrow afternoon at 1 o’clock.  The funeral cortege will leave Jacksonville and come to St. Mark’s church, where services will be conducted by the Rev. Royal K. Tucker.  Burial will follow in Oak Grove cemetery.  Mortician Edo Miller is in charge of local arrangements.

COL. WILLIAM E. KAY PASSES IN FLORIDA—Former Prominent Local Resident Died Yesterday, Be Buried Here.

            Col. William Edward Kay, eminent southern attorney, outstanding Jacksonville citizen and dominant figure in the economic, political and social life of Florida, and for years a leading Brunswick resident, died yesterday afternoon in St. Vincent’s hospital in Jacksonville.
            Death was attributed to a heart attack.  While on a visit to Cuba several weeks ago he suffered a heart attack.  He suffered a second attack at his home in Jacksonville February 15, and his condition had since been critical.
            Col. Kay was 79 years old last November 15.
            He was general solicitor for the Atlantic Coast Line railroad, head of the law firm of Kay, Ragland and Kurz, a director of the Florida Publishing Company and attorney for the Clyde-Mallory lines in Florida.
            For more than 25 years Col. Kay was a leading Brunswick resident, removing from this city when he was appointed assistant general counsel of the Atlantic Coast Line railroad.
            Col. Kay was reared in Atlanta, where he was born November 15, 1859.  He was of English and Irish ancestry.
            Col. Kay attended the public schools of his native city, going through the high school department, and in 1875 and 1876 attended Pio Nono College, a Catholic institution, near Macon.
            On leaving college he began the study of law in Atlanta in the office of former Chief Justice Lochrane, of the supreme court of Georgia, and on April 25, 1878, was admitted to the bar in that city.  While a law student he learned stenography, and during the time he was prosecuting his studies he was doing special work as a stenographer and earning his own support.
            On being admitted to the bar he removed to Brunswick, where he was soon appointed solicitor of Glynn county court, and he served also as official stenographer of the superior courts of the Brunswick judicial circuit.
            Having secured a fair start in life and established himself in his profession, he resigned both these positions in 1881, in order that he might devote himself wholly to the general practice of law.
            After two years of individual effort he became a member of the firm of Goodyear & Kay, which did a large practice, not confined to Brunswick but extending all over southeast Georgia.
            In 1896 the firm was dissolved and Colonel Kay practiced alone for six years.  He was general attorney for the Brunswick and Western Railroad Company, division counsel for the Savannah, Florida and Western Railway Company, and assistant division counsel for the Southern Railway Company, besides representing many other important interests in the section around Brunswick.
            On the acquisition of the Plant System of Railways by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Company in 1902, Col. Kay’s firm (Kay, Bennet & Conyers, formed July 1, 1902) became the representatives of the Atlantic Coast Line as division counsel, having a very large portion of its territory in Georgia.  They also continued to represent the Southern Railway as assistant division counsel, and extended and enlarged the field of practice generally.
            Col. Kay was appointed assistant general counsel of the Atlantic Coast Line railroad on January 1, 1906, and was given charge of its legal affairs in the states of Georgia, Florida and Alabama.
            He then removed to Jacksonville, where in the fall of 1906 he purchased the beautiful residence on Riverside avenue.
            Col. Kay was married February 2, 1882, to Miss Emma Lucas, a daughter of the Rev. H.E. Lucas, for many years rector of St. Mark’s Episcopal church, and of Mary A. (Magwood) Lucas, a native of Charleston, S.C.
            Col. Kay was a Democrat, and while he was never a candidate for, nor sought an elective office, he rejected offers of judicial preferment, and consistently manifested active interest in the political affairs of the United States.
            He was a man of wide general reading, accustomed to turn from strenuous professional work to nights in his library, where his remarkably quick and retentive mind enabled him to keep up with the best literature of the day, as well as with the progress being made in legal, economic and other lines.
            Col. Kay is survived by his widow, Mrs. Emma Lucas Kay; a son, William Archibald Kay, of New Jersey, and two daughters, Mrs. Edgar Englis, of Miami, and Mrs. J. Wiley Pope, of Jacksonville; two sisters, Mrs. George Kay Sullivan of Atlanta, and Mrs. Mary Kay Ward of Atlanta.  Several nieces also survive.
            Funeral services will be held from the Church of the Immaculate Conception in Jacksonville at 9:30 o’clock tomorrow morning.  The funeral cortege will leave Jacksonville after the services and burial will be in Oak Grove cemetery here tomorrow afternoon at 1 o’clock.

            Brunswick, Ga., September 3.—(Special.)—John Kelly, who was shot yesterday in a barroom row by William McClure, died today from his wounds.  The coroner’s jury pronounced it murder.  McClure makes no statement except that he shot Kelly.

KELLEY, Sarah Jane
The Brunswick News; Thursday 26 December 1935; pg. 8, col. 1



            Struck by an automobile near the plant of the Georgia Veneer & Package Company late Tuesday afternoon, Mrs. S.J. Kelley, 82, died at the City Hospital several hours after.
            Three or four eye witnesses to the accident told officers that Ronald Knight, driver of the automobile which hit the aged woman, was not responsible for the accident.
            Mrs. Kelley resided with her daughter, Mrs. J.W. Johnson, who resides several blocks from the Coastal Highway just north of the veneer plant.  Late Tuesday afternoon she went to the mail box along the highway.  She had crossed the road, secured the mail and was returning when the accident occurred.  According to witnesses, Knight observed Mrs. Kelley crossing the highway and he sounded his horn and brought his car to a stop.  Mrs. Kelley also stopped.  Knight waited a few seconds and then started his car, and as he did Mrs. Kelley started across the highway.  He again stopped the car and the woman stepped back to the edge of the highway.  Witnesses said that again Knight started the machine, and as it reached Mrs. Kelley she is alleged to have walked directly into it.  The car was traveling at a slow rate of speed.
            The aged woman was knocked to the pavement and sustained fatal injuries in the fall.  She was picked up and carried to the hospital, where she was treated, but it was realized she had been fatally injured.
            Mrs. Kelley originally was from Appling county.  She removed to Brunswick in 1917 and has since resided with her daughter here.  She is survived by five children, S.F. Teston, Sanford, Fla.; George Teston, Jacksonville; J.B. Kelley, Loughman, Fla.; Pat Kelley, Alma [Georgia], and Mrs. Johnson.
            Funeral services were held today, the arrangements being in charge of Baldwin & Edge.

KEMP, Francis E.
The Brunswick News; Wednesday 25 May 1927; pg. 8 col. 1


            Frank E. Kemp, aged 80, another of the old Confederate veterans now so rapidly disappearing, left the “thin gray line” shortly after 6 o’clock this morning, when he passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Janie Laslie, 3308 Norwich street.
            Mr. Kemp had been a resident of Brunswick for many years, in fact his entire life had been spent in and around the city, he having at one time resided at Darien.  He fought through the entire Civil war, and followed that gallant old soldier, General Joe Wheeler, of whom he often talked, and who, in his opinion, was the greatest general of them all.  During the Spanish-American war, when General Wheeler again went to the front, Mr. Kemp made a desperate effort to enlist and again get under the command of his Confederate general, but he was past the age limit, and consequently could not join the army.
            The remains will be forwarded tomorrow morning to Jesup, where the funeral will take place a few miles from that city.
            Mr. Kemp is survived by one brother, A.A. Kemp, of Waycross, and five children, Mrs. W.C. Cook and Mrs. LeRoy Williams, of Jacksonville; W.A. Kemp and Miss Susie Kemp of Atlanta, and Mrs. Laslie, of this city.  Some of the out of town relatives will arrive tomorrow to attend the funeral.

KENRICK, Martha Julia
Advertiser & Appeal; Vol. 2, No. 25; Wednesday 13 December 1876; pg. 1, col. 2

            We are pained to announce the death of Miss Martha Julia Kenrick, youngest daughter of Mr. H.A. Kenrick of our city.  She quietly passed away on the night of the 7th inst., having been a patient sufferer from consumption for the past year.
             Death will sooner or later claim us all, we know, yet how sad to behold such as she snatched away just as they cross the threshold of bright young womanhood.  it may indeed be said of her:  "So life but opens now, and now decays, The cradle and the tomb alas so nigh, To live is scarce distinguished from to die."

Sad News

            Monday’s telegrams brought little else but sad news.  Besides the startling intelligence of Maj. Devereaux’s death, of which mention is made elsewhere, a dispatch was received from Savannah, announcing the death of Mr. Wm. Tison, of the firm of Tison & Gordon, and brother of our esteemed fellow citizen, Hon. John M. Tison.  Troubles come not single- handed-only a few days ago Mr. Tison followed his daughter and her husband, Mrs. And Mr. P.A. Hazlehurst, to their last resting place, and now must part with his only brother.  By the same sources came the news of the death of Mr. Warren Kenrick, nephew of Mr. H.A. Kenrick and son-in-law of Mr. Burrell Lamb, of this county, and also of the severe illness of the wife of the deceased.  Well might we pause and ask, Who’ll be next?

A BACK-SET FOR BRUNSWICK—THE YELLOW FEVER BREAKS OUT AFRESH—Two Deaths from the Disease Reported Yesterday—Another One of the Cox Children Sick.  Quarantine Re established.

            Savannah, Ga., Sept. 13.—A special tonight to the Morning News from Brunswick, Ga., says:  W. Killian, a German shoemaker in this city, was taken sick last Friday at his shop, where he had a sleeping room.  He had been complaining for several days previous.  As he was living alone he received no treatment until Sunday, when the Odd Fellow learned of his illness and gave him immediate attention.  A physician was called in and treated him for gastric fever.  His death this morning caused some rumor, and Mayor Lamb called in Surgeon Guiteras to hold an autopsy.  This was done, five of the local physicians assisting.  The result was the pronouncing that Killian died from yellow fever.
            This afternoon another suspicious death was reported at the city hospital, the person being a Norwegian, who was being treated for consumption.  He has been sick for some time, however, Dr. Guiteras, after an autopsy, decided that the death was caused by yellow fever.
            This evening report was heart that one of the Cox children was sick.  This is the same family that caused do much excitement in the previous panic by picking up a sick child and running away to escape the government doctors.  The boy who is now sick is said to have been wading in a pond of stagnant water all day Sunday.  Dr. Guiteras was seen tonight by the Morning News correspondent, but positively refused to make any statement whatever for publication.  It is supposed that he will have assistants here at once.
            Brunswick was regaining her old progressive condition rapidly, and the rumors today did not visibly affect her commerce, though the inevitable quarantine will put a stop to business, as before.  Some nervousness is shown, and a number of people left on the night train, but there was nothing like a panic.  There are a great number of people who have returned, and many that did not leave before, who have no means to go now; but all seem to take the matter calmly, through everything is as gloomy as can be.  The board of health has not met yet, and therefore no idea can be given as to the conditions for an epidemic.
            A large number of the old refugees expressed a determination to remain here.  The schedules on the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia and Brunswick and Western roads will be made in accordance with the quarantine regulations.

QUARANTINE RE ESTABLISHED—Savannah, Sept. 13.—Savannah re established quarantine against Brunswick tonight.  Nobody from that city is to be allowed to come here even if they have been absent from that city for ten days.

Gen. King Dies at 74; Funeral To Be Tomorrow

        Major General Edward P. King, Jr., died at the Brunswick hospital at 10:45 o'clock last night after having suffered a heart attack at his home on St. Simons Island the previous night.  He had observed his 74th birthday on July 4.
        Survivor of 41 months in a Japanese prison camp during World War II, Gen. King, a native of Atlanta, retired to Sea Island in 1947.  His late aunt, Mrs. Louisa Young, was a St. Simons resident.
        He was in command of U.S. troops on Bataan in the Philippines at the time of the surrender to the Japanese in 1942.  He had been promoted to the rank of major general a few weeks after the Japanese attacked at Pearl Harbor in December 1941.
        The official Defense Department history of World War II said of him:
        "Soft-spoken, modest, innately courteous to all ranks, King had achieved a reputation as an extremely able soldier of high intellectual calibre.
        "His assignment to command the Luzon force, while a recognition of his ability and reputation, was destined to end tragically.  On him fell the terrible responsibility of making a hard decision, less than three weeks later, to surrender his starved and defeated troops to the enemy."
        His strength regained after freed from the Japanese camp, Gen. King in his period of residence here became a leader in civilian affairs.  In demand as a speaker, he developed great popularity from his kindly demeanor and accepted a number of important posts.  Organizations which enlisted his participation learned their projects were virtually assured of success by his presence.
        Gen. King received a law degree from the University of Georgia.  He served in the Georgia National Guard until commissioned an artillery second lieutenant in the regular Army in 1906.
        He served in the Philippines in World War I, rose steadily in rank, attended and later taught at the Army's Command and General Staff School, and was an authority on artillery when assigned to the Philippines in 1941 to help train the Philippine Army.
        He was chief of artillery for Gen. Douglas MacArthur.  When MacArthur and Army commander Gen. Jonathan Wainwright moved to the island fortress of Corregidor after the Japanese invaded Luzon, Gen. King was placed in command of the forces remaining at Bataan.
        Funeral services are to be held tomorrow at Christ Church, Frederica, conducted by the Rev. Junius Martin, rector.  Burial will take place at St. John's-in-the-Wilderness Cemetery, Flat Rock, N.C., near his summer home, Saluda.
        The simple island services will be at 11 a.m.  No military guard is planned.  Immediately afterwards the procession will leave for Flat Rock.
        Pallbearers will be Albert Fendig, Alfred W. Jones, E.R. Sherman, Dr. Ira G. Towson, Lucian Whittle, T.M. Baumgardner, J.D. Compton, and W.H. Backus.
        Gen. King's first wife died in 1954.  He was married in 1956 to Mrs. Pauline King Beutell of St. Simons, who survives him.  His only other survivor is a sister, Miss Mary King, Savannah.
        After taking up residence here, Gen. King became active in the Brunswick Rotary Club and the Glynn County Chapter of the Red Cross.  He accepted leadership of fund campaigns for the Red Cross after a period of years when drives had failed to reach goals.  Under his command the drives regularly surpassed quotas.  The chapter has been renamed in honor of him.
        Gen. King was a member of Christ Church and was serving as senior warden at the time of his death.

GEN. JOHN FLOYD KING DEAD—Assistant Registrar of Treasury and Many Years a Representative.

            Gen. John Floyd King, 73 years old, assistant registrar of the Treasury, and a representative from Georgia for many years, died yesterday at George Washington Hospital after a brief illness.  Death was due to heart disease.
            Gen. King had been a resident of the District since 1887, when he moved here following the expiration of his fourth term in Congress.  For a number of years he was engaged in mining operations.  He was appointed to the Treasury only last year.
            Gen. King was born in Georgia of a distinguished family.  He was a graduate of the University of Virginia.  He entered the Confederate army at the outbreak of the civil war, and rose to be a colonel of artillery.  He was later appointed a brigadier general of the Georgia State troops.
            Surviving Gen. King is his wife.  He had no children and was the last of his family.  Funeral services will be held tomorrow at a place to be decided upon later.  Interment will be in Arlington Cemetery.  Funeral services will be under the joint auspices of Camp 171 U.C.V., and Rouss Camp of Confederate Veterans.
            The following will act as honorary pallbearers at the funeral services Maj. Holmes Conrad, Leigh Robinson, Capt. William A. Gorden, Capt. Perry de Leon, Capt. William H. Nichols and Maj. Edward W. Anderson.

The Atlanta Constitution; Wednesday 12 May 1915; pg. 8 col. 6


            Editor Constitution:  I notice in your Sunday’s issue the following from Washington, D.C.:
            “General John Floyd King; assistant registrar of the treasury and a confederate veteran, and former representative from Louisiana, died today of heart failure.  He was stricken yesterday.”
            General King was a Georgian and the son of Senator Thomas Butler King, who represented Georgia in the Unites States senate before the war.  In February 1861, Governor Joseph E. Brown appointed John Floyd King first lieutenant in the First regiment of Georgia regulars, which was formed during February and March at the Oglethorpe barracks in Savannah, Ga.
            Lieutenant King was a splendid officer and a strict disciplinarian and one of the finest looking officers in the regulars.
            The last time that I remember seeing Lieutenant King with the regulars was at Camp Rocky Run, near Centerville, Va., in December 1861.  One evening while the companies were marching to the parade ground Lieutenant King and Lieutenant David G. Wiley, who died in Atlanta a few years ago, engaged in a rough and tumble fight.  When I saw them they were sprawling on the ground, but I don’t recollect who was on top.  They were both splendid specimens of young manhood.  The next time I remember seeing Lieutenant King was at the battle of Sharpsburg, on the 17th of September 1862.  He was then a major in the artillery service.  Since I saw him at Sharpsburg I had lost sight of him until a few years ago.
            General King was an honor to Georgia and the southern cause, for which he fought, and his death has caused Georgia to lose one of her noblest sons and the confederate veterans one of their most distinguished comrades.

Mrs. N.J. King Dies Jan. 13th

KING, Thomas Butler
Daily Constitutionalist (Augusta, GA); Sunday 15 May 1864; pg. 1 col. 3

            DEATH OF HON. THOMAS BUTLER KING.—With pain we announce the death of Hon. Thomas Butler King, of Glynn, at his temporary residence near Waresboro’ on Tuesday.  His disease was pneumonia, and he had been sick about three weeks.
            Mr. King was a native of Pennsylvania, but came to Georgia about forty years ago, when quite a young man.  He married the daughter of the late Col. Wm. Pane [sic], of St. Simon’s, and settled in Glynn county.  He was a gentleman of liberal education and enlarged views, and about the year of 1832 entered political life.  In that or the succeeding year, we think he represented the county of Glynn in the State Legislature; and, in 1834, and for several successive years, he was the State Senator from the same county.  In politics he was of the Crawford and Troup school.  When the nullification question arose, Mr. King allied himself to the State Right party of Georgia; and in 1838 was elected, with the entire State Rights ticket, a member of Congress.  He was in the House of Representatives for several consecutive terms, and was identified with the Whig party which elevated Gen. Harrison to the Presidency.—In Congress, Mr. King was very useful, especially in connection with naval affairs and ocean steam navigation.  It is admitted, on all hands, that he would have made an excellent Secretary of the Navy.  On the accession of Gen. Taylor to the Presidency, Mr. King was appointed Collector of the Port of San Francisco, in which office he continued about two years.  During his whole career, he was devoted to the cause of internal improvement, and he exercised much influence in the council of the State, and also in the nation.  On the secession of Georgia, he was sent by the State as Commissioner to Europe, and his correspondence in that capacity was marked by great ability and practical acquaintance with the laws of trade and rules for international dealing.—Ardently devoted to the cause and institutions of the South, he has passed away just as that cause seems on the verge of triumphant success, but leaving behind him the record of a useful man and a sagacious statesman.  We tender to his family and friends our sincere condolence.—Sav. News.

FUNERAL RITES HELD TODAY FOR JUDGE KRAUSS—Prominent Attorney Passed Away Here Saturday Afternoon.

            Judge Daniel Webster Krauss, prominent South Georgia Attorney, passed away at the City Hospital Saturday afternoon, following an illness of two or three weeks.
            The “Judge”, as he was familiarly known by practically everyone who had lived Brunswick for any length of time, was the dean of the legal profession here, having studied law in the office and under the tutelage of the late Judge Frank H. Harris, an outstanding attorney of his day and a veteran of the War Between the States; and was admitted to the bar just before he was 21 years of age.
            He was born Oct. 21, 1869, and practiced law in Brunswick and Glynn county for 58 years.  He was one of the first graduates of Glynn Academy.
            For several terms he was judge of City Court when it was first established.  Prior to that service he had been active in city politics having served as a member of the city council.
            During World War I, he was chairman of the committee selling Liberty Bonds, in which campaign Glynn county reached and exceeded its quota before any other county in the state.
            For years before his removal to St. Simons Island, Judge Krauss and Mrs. Krauss were active in church work, the Judge having been a member of the board of stewards and for years superintendent of the Sunday School of the First Methodist Church, while his wife for years taught a woman’s Bible class in the same Sunday School, which class bore her name.
            Prominent also in fraternal order circles, he was a member of all the branches of York Rite Masonry from Blue Lodge to Shrine; and was made an honorary life member of the Knights of Pythias on his fiftieth year of membership in that order.
            In his private law practice, Judge Krauss was noted for his never-failing devotion to the cause of justice for his clients in both civil and criminal matters before the courts, whether those seeking his services were of high or low estate.
            Survivors include his wife, Mrs. Minnie Lee Krauss; a daughter, Mrs. Hope Strong, of Winter Park, Fla.; two sons, Willard Webster Krauss and Daniel Lee Krauss, of this city; and the following grandchildren:  Caroline Krauss, Daniel Lee Krauss, Jr., Lt. Hope Strong, Jr., USN, Daniel deGraffenried Strong, and Ensign Willard Lee Strong.  Two great grandchildren and a number of other relatives also survive.
            Funeral services were held at the First Methodist Church at 3:30 o’clock this afternoon, with all Methodist Ministers in the area participating.  Burial was in Oak Grove cemetery.  Serving as active pallbearers were Julian Bennet, Osborne Morgan, Ben White, W. Cone Holody, Alfred Brockington, Howard Leavy, Edwin Sherman and Francis Baker.  Members of the Brunswick Bar Association and a large number of other friends served as honorary pallbearers.  The funeral was in charge of the Miller Funeral Home.
