A Sad Death; Mr. Nelson W. MacDonald Breathes His Last--Expired Suddenly

        Mr. Nelson W. MacDonald, of New York, brother of Mrs. B.B. Strait, expired suddenly Monday morning at 9 o'clock, at the residence of Mr. Strait, 1605 Gloucester street.  The young man had been a sufferer from that dreaded disease consumption, and was returning from Florida, where he had been, in the hope that the climate would benefit him.  He came by way of this city to see his sister, and while pleasantly conversing with her Monday, suddenly breathed his last.

            Died, yesterday forenoon, in this town, after two days' illness, Mr. Thomas MacGuire, a native of Stradford, England, but for some time past a resident of this place, aged twenty three years, leaving a widow and an orphan-child behind him.  His foulest crime was his poverty--his notorious weakness, a heart, honest, faithful and feeling.  Can wealth leave a better name?

TODAY’S FUNERAL—Mr. T. Mahoney Will Be Laid to Rest This Afternoon.

            The funeral of Mr. Timothy Mahoney will occur from the Catholic church at 2:30 o’clock this afternoon, and the services will be conducted by Rev. P.J. Luckie.  The hundreds of friends of the deceased were shocked yesterday morning when they read THE CALL of the sudden death.  For the past few days Mr. Mahoney has been complaining of a pain in the heart, but the family as well as himself thought it was indigestion and did not feel alarmed and his death fell like a thunder clap upon them.  As was stated yesterday the deceased has been a resident of Brunswick for the past 40 years and he has always been an upright honest citizen, a consistent member of the Catholic church, a loving father and kind husband.  It is said by those who were near to him, that he never said a word against a man in his life.
            For many years Mr. Mahoney has been section master for the B & W railroad but resigned some weeks ago, he having reached that age which made the work too hard for him, he being nearly 70 years of age.  To the bereaved family THE CALL tenders its sympathy.
            The following gentlemen will act as pall bearers:
            R.E. Briesenick, Thos. O’Connor, C. McGarvey, W.R. Osborne, C.W. Floyd, M. Verdery, A.C. Shannon, F. Joerger.

A LITTLE BOY'S HEAD SEVERED BY MOTOR CAR--JOHN MANNING, TEN YEARS OLD, MET HORRIBLE DEATH YESTERDAY--While Playing on Southern Track at Everett Section Foreman's Motor Car Ran Over Him, Death Resulting Instantly.

        John, the little ten-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Manning, who reside at Everett City, met with a most horrible accident yesterday morning at Everett, when a motor car on the Southern railway ran over him, almost completely severing his head, crushing his leg and otherwise mangling him.
        The awful accident was witnessed by Section Foreman Murphy, three others who were on the motor car with him, and one or two who were standing nearby when the accident occurred.
        It seems that Section Foreman Murphy with his crew was speeding from Everett to Mt. Pleasant in order to do some work.  The little Manning boy was playing on the railroad track and the car was upon him before those in charge saw the youngster.  When the car was within ten or fifteen yards of the little boy, and it was seen that it would be impossible to stop it before reaching him, the section foreman yelled at the little fellow to get off the track, which he could have done at that time, but looking up and seeing the car, he was so excited, realizing that great danger he was in, that instead of jumping across the track, the boy ran up the track.  Every effort was made to bring the motor car to a stop, but it was impossible, and the little fellow was caught in the middle of the track and knocked to one side, one of the wheels passing over his head, almost severing it from the body, while another wheel passed over his leg.
        The car was stopped quickly as possible and the little boy was picked up, but the accident had proved fatal and the little fellow lived for only a short time.
        The accident caused general sorrow among the people around Everett, where the little boy was well known.  He was an unusually bright youngster and the parents have the sympathy of many friends in the sad accident.  The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon at Mt. Pleasant.

MARTIN MARKHAM, AN AGED RESIDENT, DIES HERE TODAY

            Martin V. Markham, 83, a resident of Brunswick practically all of his life and for years a steamboat engineer, died this morning at City Hospital.  He had been ill for some time.
            Mr. Markham was born in Camden county but he came to Brunswick to reside when a small boy.  For approximately 40 years he was a chief engineer and was employed on several local passenger steamers during the time he was engaged in the steamboat business.  However, he retired a number of years ago, and since that time he continued to be quite active in other work until a short time ago.
            He was also a boat builder, and was said to me [sic] among the best in this area in building small boats.  He also was an expert in making small cast nets.
            Mr. Markham was well known among a great majority of Brunswick’s older residents and many others.  For a number of years he had resided at 1917 Prince street.
            He is survived by three sons, Barney, Ronnie and Emmett Markham, all of Daytona Beach, Fla., and a step-son, Frank Thomas, of this city.
            Funeral arrangements will be announced later by the Miller Funeral Home.

E.C. MARLIN HAS FIGHTING CHANCE—Some Hopes For His Recovery Held Out By Physicians Early This Morning

            Though still lingering between life and death at his home on Wolf street, E.C. Marlin, for whom all hope had practically been abandoned since Tuesday night, showed such an improvement late yesterday afternoon and last night that attending physicians held out some hope for his recovery.
            The announcement in The News yesterday morning that Mr. Marlin was in a critical condition, with but small chances of his recovery, caused genuine sorrow throughout the entire city.  During the day messages came form the bedside of the popular young man that there was no chance for his recovery, although everything possible was done for him.  However, late yesterday afternoon his fever, which had been unusually high throughout the day, dropped and he appeared to be breathing a great deal better, and this gave the physicians and members of the family renewed hope.  Though the improvement was not slight, still it was the first indication that there was any chance at all for his recovery.
            At a late hour last night it was announced that no turn for the worse had taken place, and the announcement was made that, although Mr. Marlin’s condition was most critical, still he had a fighting chance.

GENIAL EUGENE MARLIN PASSED AWAY YESTERDAY—At 4:15 in the Afternoon Grim Reaper Claimed Popular Young Man—Was a General Favorite—Funeral Will Occur From First Baptist Church at 3:30 This Afternoon and Interment Will be in Palmetto

            Eugene C. Marlin, son of Mr. and Mrs. L.C. Marlin, one of the most popular young business men of this city, and a Brunswickian born and reared, esteemed in the very highest degree, passed away at his home on Wolf street at 4:15 o’clock yesterday afternoon.  The death of Mr. Marlin comes in the nature of a tragedy and a shock to the people of the entire community.
            On Saturday morning last he was the subject of an operation for a slight affection of the nose.  He did not rally from the operation as well as he should, and some alarm was entertained by attending physicians.  Early Monday morning it was observed that meningitis had developed, and from that time to the hour of his death he failed rapidly.  Practically every physician in the city went to the aid of the stricken Brunswickian, and everything possible that medical science could suggest was resorted to, but without avail, and death relieve the sufferer.
            Eugene Marlin was but thirty-one years old, but in that brief span of years he had accomplished much and the grim hand of death found him one of the most useful, independent and growing young business men in the city.  His early life was spent in the banking interests of the city, but for a few years’ service as cashier of the local freight offices of the A., B. and A. railroad.  However, some five years ago he purchased an interest in the Georgia Hardware company, and became its secretary and treasurer, exercising to a large extent the active management of the company.  He was a keen business man, a good accountant, and, above all, possessed a charming, jovial disposition that made and retained for him thousands of friends.
            Several years ago Mr. Marlin was married to Miss Deborah Stewart, and to that union three sweet little children were born, all of whom survive him.  The home life was thus ideal, and both Mr. and Mrs. Marlin were popular in the social circles of the city, retaining their relations with the dancing element, the summer colony at St. Simon [sic], etc.  Mr. Marlin was a member of the Masons and of the Knights of Pythias, and in both organizations he was a popular leader.
            This untimely death has cast a gloom over the entire city, and in unmeasured fashion the sympathy of all the people go out to the grief stricken wife, the little fatherless children and to those devoted parents who had just cause to be proud of such a son.
            The funeral will occur from the First Baptist church at 3:30 o’clock this afternoon, Rev. O.P. Gilbert, of that church, conducting the funeral services, assisted by Rev. D. Watson Winn of St. Simon [sic].  The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers:  D.A. Robinson, Clinton Knight, William Dunwody, J.E. Dubberly, L.E. Allen, C.M. Peddicord.  Interment will be in Palmetto cemetery.

DEATH OF MR. J.S. MARLIN

            Died, on the night of the 25th ult., Mr. J.S. Marlin, of this city.  The deceased might well be remembered among the old citizens of Brunswick, having been a resident here for very many years.  Being a man of strong constitution naturally, and leading an active life, he reached a ripe old age (seventy-four years), and at last passed away quietly, not by the violent hand of disease, but simply from a wearing out of the machinery of life.  He leaves behind him a pure, Christian life—a rich legacy to his children.  To that fond and loving wife who survives him, that dutiful son on whom he has leaned for support in declining years, and those affectionate daughters, we extend the sympathy of a heart that feels for them in their affliction, for in the death of Mr. Marlin the writer has lost a warm friends [sic].  Peace to his ashes.

A MEMORIAM TO “JOE” MATHEWS

            They called him “Peanut Joe.”  It matters not if daily he sat behind his fruit stand, and with a kindly smile doled out his fruit a nickle’s [sic] worth at a time.  I knew him for thirty years, and there never throbed [sic], in human breast, a kinder, or truer heart.  As I stood over him today, so calm, so peaceful, I wondered if his heart went out to his native land, and whispered courage to his countrymen in their death grapple for Christianity against infidelity, for I well knew his faith was of the faithful.  He is a great and good man from whom the needy, or those who came for protection went not away with disappointed hopes and discontented countenance.  He was this man, though, though humble, “Peanut Joe.”  J.E.

BODY OF WOMAN MISSING 4 DAYS FOUND ON BLYTHE

            Missing since Tuesday when she left her home on Blythe Island to go to the residence of a neighbor to call an ambulance to take her husband to a hospital, the body of Mrs. Margaret Mazoe, 36, was found shortly after 7 o’clock this morning in the back yard of her home by her brother-in-law, Harry Mazoe, and early investigations indicate she died of natural causes, as there were no signs of violence in evidence.
            According to the story related by relatives of Mrs. Mazoe, her husband, Cecil Mazoe, was ill at their home, and she left about 5:30 o’clock Tuesday afternoon to go to the home of a nearby neighbor to summon an ambulance.  That was the last seen of her until her body was found.
            Mr. Mazoe, after his wife did not returned [sic] in a limited time, was endeavoring also telephone [sic], and a Mrs. Webb, on the phone line, heard him anc called an ambulance and the husband was carried to the hospital.
            Mrs. Mazoe’s absence caused considerable anxiety and a search was instituted for her.  Today her brother-in-law went over to the home of his brother to feed his chickens and found the body in the yard.  An outhouse is located about 100 feet from the house, and the body was about midway the distance.  It was not discovered earlier, it was stated, because there was no one else at the residence.
            It was stated that Mrs. Mazoe was subject to “bad spells” and that her heart had become affected, therefore it is believed she suffered an attack as she left her home to go to a telephone.
            Besides her husband, Mrs. Mazoe is survived by a little son, Robert Love, who makes his home here with his aunt, Mrs. Otto Gelow, 613 Ellis street.

            The saddest event transpiring [in reference to Monroe Phillips shooting numerous people] was the death of Ernest McDonald, which occurred at the city hospital Sunday morning.  Little hope had been held out for Mr. McDonald all along, due to the fact that he had only recently recovered from a severe attack of pneumonia.  He was a popular young man, well known and of sterling character; he is a son of Mr. and Mrs. W.A. McDonald, was engaged with the former in the meat packing business and is survived also by a wife, two children and several brothers and sisters.  His untimely death caused universal sorrow, and the funeral from the Presbyterian church yesterday afternoon was largely attended.

Donald McGregor, 20, Dies; Accident Injuries Fatal To Bravery Medal Winner

        A 20-year-old Brunswick youth who received the Young American Medal for Bravery from the late President Kennedy at the White House for a dramatic sea rescue, died here last night of injuries sustained in a wreck on Glynn Avenue that also injured three other persons.
        The car in which the youth was a passenger had been drag racing shortly before the accident, city police said.
        Donald Eugene McGregor, son of Mr. and Mrs. Ernest M. McGregor of Fancy Bluff, died at 11:45 p.m. in the Brunswick hospital of head injuries received when a northbound auto driven by Myron M. Pegram, 19, of 147 Waycross Highway, went out of control just south of the Brunswick marina, knocked down eight posts of the median fence and overturned, according to officers R.E. Tayloe and D.A. Toler.
        Pegram received a cut on the ear, and McGregor was pinned in the wreckage.  Officer Tayloe received a minor back injury freeing  him, police said.
        When the Pegram auto hit the fence about 4 p.m., a 20-foot section of pipe from it was propelled javelin-like into the windshield of a southbound  1958 model car driven by Garrett P. Raymond, 48, of Starke, Fla., who received a hand laceration, police said.  Raymond's wife, Mrs. Ethel S. Raymond, suffered a bruised neck, and a third occupant, Jimmy Crossy Jr., received a cut on the forehead police said.
        According to witnesses, including five youths in a following vehicle which police said had been involved in a drag race with the Pegram car shortly before the accident, the car in which McGregor died went out of control on the rain-swept highway as Pegram applied the brakes, officers said.
        Pegram since May of last year has forfeited three bonds totaling $90 on charges of speeding, reckless driving and improper muffler, police records show.
        In addition to the medal pinned on him by President Kennedy March 23, 1961, McGregor on the same day was awarded the Carnegie Hero Medal by former Congresswoman Iris Blitch.
        The medals recognized McGregor's rescuing a family of four from drowning when their sloop began breaking up after becoming grounded July 20, 1959, off Cumberland Island.
        McGregor, then 15, voluntarily left the fishing boat he was on and boarded the sloop.  In an ensuing three-hour battle with the sea, he swam ashore and got help after an adverse tide halted progress of the rest of the life-jacketed party--Mr. and Mrs. Harold Clark, of Jacksonville, Fla., and their two children Robin and Christine.  McGregor also received the Coast Guard's Silver Lifesaving Medal.
        Funeral services for McGregor will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the First Methodist Church, with the Rev. James T. Pannell officiating, assisted by the Rev. Bernard Brown.  The burial will be in the churchyard of Emanuel Methodist Church, of which McGregor was a member.
        Surviving besides McGregor's parents are four brothers, Robert M. McGregor, Roland McGregor and James Gordon McGregor, all of Brunswick, and Randall McGregor, stationed with the Navy at Milton, Fla.; and two sisters, Mrs. Brenda Davis, Brunswick, and Mrs. Joan Davis, Binghamton, N.Y.
        Active pallbearers will be Bobby Stubbs, Joe McCants, Charles Skarpalezos, Cappy Pegram, Danny O'Quinn, Johnny McClurd, Kenny Mobley and Phil McDonald.  Honorary pallbearers will be Billy Hammond, Gene Spaulding, Buddy Owens, Mike Friedmann, Charles Shierling, L.E. Chapman Jr., and Buddy Andrews.
        McGregor was attending the University of Georgia extension unit at Brunswick College, and had attended Rinehardt College at Waleski.

Judge Delays Fatal Mishap Traffic Hearing

        A hearing for two Brunswick youths on charges of driving recklessly prior to the traffic death here Sunday of 20-year-old Carnegie Hero Medal winner Donald Eugene McGregor was postponed until 10 a.m. Friday to give members of the victim's family an opportunity to be present.
        "I wouldn't want to dispose of this case until some member of the family has an opportunity to be present," said Recorder's Court Judge Phil S. Ringel in deferring the cases of Myron M. Pegram, 19, of Rt. 1, and Harry Myers, 18, of 44 Patton Dr.
        McGregor's funeral was today at 2 p.m. at the First Methodist Church, with interment in the Emmanuel Methodist Churchyard at Brookman.
        Pegram and Myers had been drag racing shortly before the crash of Pegram's auto into the median fence of U.S. 17 just south of the Brunswick marina, police said.
        McGregor, a passenger in the Pegram vehicle, subsequently died of head injuries.  A length of pipe flew off the fence and speared through the windshield of another car, injuring the three occupants.
        Also in court today in connection with the case were four other youths who were passengers in the Myers vehicle and who were given summons as witnesses.  Including attorney Anthony A. Alaimo and parents of the involved youths, some 20 persons were in court in connection with the case.
        McGregor was awarded the Young American Medal for Bravery, the Carnegie Hero Medal and the Coast Guard's lifesaving medal for the dramatic sea rescue of a family of four from a sloop grounded off Cumberland Island July 20, 1959.

DEATH OF WILDS McIVER

            On last Saturday night, just before midnight, the spirit of Wilds McIver passed away.  He had been for weeks suffering from the effects of a wound in the leg from a pistol ball, accidentally discharged by a room-mate, at Waycross.  When brought to this city, his physicians began treating him on the information derived that the ball had been removed.  Great difficulty was experienced, however, in preventing frequent hemorrhages.  On Saturday it was decided to perform an operation, in the course of which the ball was found.  Too late, however, was the discovery, and on the same night he died.  So young and hopeful, the light and joy of his family, and a favorite with many friends, it seems sad that he should be taken, but it is not for man to question the edicts of the Supreme Ruler.  His funeral took place on Sunday afternoon from the Baptist church, and was attended by a large concourse of friends.  He leaves two brothers and a large circle of relatives to whom we tender our sympathies.

SAD DEATH

            Mr. E.A. McWhorter, of St. Marys, reached the city Monday morning en route from Anniston, Ala., whither he had gone to see his youngest son, who was ill there of typhoid fever.  At Atlanta he met and passed, without knowing it, the corpse of his dearh boy in charge of his wife and older son, who had preceeded [sic] him several days to the bed side of the sick boy.  On reaching Anniston Mr. McWhorter heard of the death of his son for the first time, reaching here three o’clock Monday morning.  He left on the Cracker Boy for Satilla Bluff, where he was met by his buggy.
            The others reached here last Saturday and chartered the steamer Inca and carried the remains of the dead son back to his home.  As Mr. McWhorter narrated the sad tale to us his big heart swelled with emotion and often choked his utterance.  The young man had but a short time since left the paternal roof to enter business in this new field, but the summons came and the cord was snapped, leaving naught but sorrow in its track.

Mayor is Killed Near Waycross; Dr. Mercer, Traveling Alone, Dies in Grinding 2-Car Crash

        Dr. Joseph B. Mercer, nearing the end of his first year as mayor of Brunswick, was killed in a grinding head-on collision 12 miles west of Waycross on U.S. 82 at noon today.
        The State Patrol said the highway had not been cleared of the impact-welded wreckage 1 1/2 hours after the collision which also killed the other driver, Carl Clinton Williams of Jacksonville.
        Dr. Mercer was traveling alone to a medical meeting at Albany.
        Dr. Mercer, 39, was elected to the City Commission to fill the unexpired term of Congressman J. Russell Tuten and became the first man to win election to the post of mayor-commissioner at large after its enactment in the General Assembly.
        Dr. Mercer prided himself on never once missing a City Commission meeting despite the pressures of a busy medical practice.  Although his accomplishments were many in his brief span of public service, City Manager H.B. Lovvorn summed up his vigorous leadership thusly:  "He was noted for the ability to get things done, some of which had been in the talking stage for a long time."
        Dr. Mercer was en route to a council meeting of the Medical Assn. of Georgia of which he was a member.  he also was a member of the American Academy of General Practice and president-elect of the Medical College of Georgia Alumni Assn.
        A native of Jasper Co., Ga., Dr. Mercer came here 12 years ago.
        Among survivors are his wife, Kathryn; a son, Steve, and a daughter, Paige.
        He was associated in medical practice with Drs. W.O. Inman and Willard Snyder and resided on Parkwood Drive.
        His wife recently pictured Dr. Mercer's three great devotions as his family, medicine and public service with little time for rest and virtually none for recreational pursuits.
        Funeral arrangements will be announced later by Edo Miller and Sons Funeral Home.

Great Loss is Reaction of Stunned City; All will Miss Him, Taylor Says; Old Friends Call

        News of Mayor Mercer's tragic death evoked a stunned reaction from city leaders and the man on the street.
        "We were very close," said Commissioner Harry Long.  "I just heard about it a minute ago, and this thing's got me all shook up. It's so great a loss.  I'm awfully upset.  he (Mayor Mercer) jut meant so much to all of us, not only as mayor but as a personal friend.  I was with him only yesterday.  He was young.  It's an unbelievably great loss."
        Commissioner Clyde A. Taylor called Mercer's loss "awfully bad and very regrettable.  The whole city will miss him greatly.  He was an ideal man for this time of the city's growth.  He was a dedicated doctor and did a great amount of charity work.  he was most highly though of in all endeavors.  It was a pleasure to work with him.  We'll all miss him greatly.  He was always so considerate of us as commissioner.  It's a great loss.  He was so able, kind and thoughtful.  He gave too much of his time to others.
        City Attorney Bernard N. Nightingale hadn't heard about the fatal head-on crash until he was reached by phone just after 2 p.m.  "Oh, I'm so sorry," he said.  "It's a terrific calamity.  I sympathize with his family."
        Old friends called to find out the details and express their sense of loss.  Felix Cox, personnel supervisor at Hercules Powder Col, who as a director of the American Cancer Society's chapter here worked with the mayor at meetings of the group, said it was "very saddening to know of (his) death and loss."

        City flags flew at half staff today and Wednesday's scheduled dedication of the newly remodeled Municipal Building was postponed as residents here paid tribute to Mayor Joseph Buford Mercer, victim of a head-on collision 10 miles west of Waycross on Saturday.
        Funeral services for Dr. Mercer, 39, were held today at 11 a.m. at the First Baptist Church with the Rev. Jack P. Lowndes, pastor, officiating.
        Members of the City and County Commissions, the Glynn County Medical Society and the Glynn County Dental Society provided an honorary escort.
        Dr. Mercer was a graduate of the University of Georgia and was graduated from the Medical College of Georgia in 1951.  He served his internship at the City Hospital of Columbus and practiced at the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad Hospital in Waycross before moving here to establish practice in 1953.
        He was past president of the Glynn County Medical Society, a member of the Medical Assn. of Georgia council, the American Medical Assn., a past president of the Georgia chapter of the American Academy of General Practice, former vice speaker of the medical Assn. of Georgia House of Delegates, a member of the Georgia Medical Political Action Committee and president-elect of the Medical College of Georgia Alumni Assn.  He was active in local health agencies and participated in a drive to establish a cancer clinic here.

Mercer Works Will Continue Minster Says

        "Dr. Joe Mercer is dead but his works will live on," the Rev. Jack P. Lowndes, pastor of the First Baptist Church, said today in funeral services for the late mayor.
        Mr. Lowndes pictured Dr. Mercer as a dedicated man of convictions who was not afraid to act on his beliefs.
        In his public service and physical healing careers, Dr. Mercer touched hundreds of lives and will be recalled by all in cherished memories of their individual interludes with him, the minister said.
        A church official estimated that 800 persons attended the funeral, filling the auditorium, annex and balcony with only standing room remaining.  Additional friends of Dr. Mercer were on hand at graveside in Palmetto Cemetery.
        Despite a request from the family that contributions be made to the Glynn-Brunswick Memorial Hospital Trust Fund in lieu of flowers, more than 100 floral tributes were sent.
        Johnny Wilson, president of Edo Miller & Sons Funeral Home, described the turnout as the largest for a funeral in his career as a mortician.
        The Glynn Academy Red Terrors football team appeared at the funeral in a body in respect to Dr. Mercer, one of their most avid boosters in the past championship season and himself a former football player for the University of Georgia.

Car Which Hit Mercer Vehicle 'All Over Road'

        The automobile of a Jacksonville Naval Air Station mechanic which crashed head-on into a car carrying Dr. Joseph B. Mercer, killing both drivers, had run two cars and a truck off U.S. 82 before swerving into Dr. Mercer's westbound lane, according to investigating state troopers.
        In their report of the noontime accident 10 miles west of Waycross, Cpl. D.M. Griffin and Trooper W.E. Peacock of the Waycross State Patrol post quoted a witness, Nelson Pruitt, Jr., as saying he was driving behind the eastbound car of Carl Clinton Williams, 50, and Williams was "driving all over the road."
        Witnesses said Dr. Mercer, driving about 40 miles an hour, had pulled far to the right in an effort to avoid the fatal collision.
        Williams died instantly and Dr. Mercer succumbed while en route to a Waycross hospital.  He suffered massive head and chest injuries, authorities said.

TUTEN PRAISES MERCER, MEMORIALS URGED

            Congressman J. Russell Tuten eulogized the late Mayor Joseph B. Mercer at the City Commission meeting this morning as “one of the most outstanding, valuable and respected leaders in Brunswick’s history,” and both Rep. Tuten and Mayor Pro Tem Harry Long proposed memorials to him.
            Both the city and county commissions adopted resolutions in memory of Dr. Mercer.  The city resolution said in part: “…we shall not meet his like again.”
            Rep. Tuten, referring to Dr. Mercer’s death last Saturday in an auto collision near Waycross, noted that he had been looking forward to the “joy and pride” of joining with the mayor and others in dedicating the remodeled Municipal Building this afternoon, but “instead we come …with sad hearts and contrite spirits as we observe a vacant chair.”
            Dr. Mercer’s accomplishments in “such a short time,” said Rep. Tuten were amazing.  He performed an invaluable service to his community which was greatly needed and at the time it was needed.  No state had a more conscientious doctor.  No city had amore vigorous and dedicated public servant.  No family had a better father and husband.  He was my close and beloved friend.  His efforts were untiring.  His character was unquestionable.  He stood like a man.
            “I know,” said Rep. Tuten to the commission, that “you will maintain his high standards and complete his program.”
            Rep. Tuten suggested that the commission “give consideration to dedicating an appropriate memorial soon in the memory of and to the honor of Dr. Joe Mercer, Brunswick’s most colorful and outstanding mayor.  I hope a portrait will be displayed on the appropriate wall in the city hall.
            “You and I should be comforted by the fact that God claims clean, honest, dedicated ‘men of action,’” said the Eight District representative.
            Mayor Pro Tem Long said “the commissioners are formulating plans for a befitting memorial to this dedicated man.”  He added:  “Our loss is too great to be measured in words.  The greatest tribute that can be paid to Dr. Joe Mercer is that this commission and the citizens of Brunswick carry out the programs that he initiated.”
            Giving the invocation for the meeting was the Rev. Jack P. Lowndes, pastor of Dr. Mercer’s church, the First Baptist, who officiated at the late mayor’s funeral Monday.
            The city’s resolution read in part:  “As a public leader he was a man of honor, of courage, of high purpose, with an abiding concern that right should be done…As a friend he was a man of warmth, of trust, of steadfastness.
            “In life, we the people of Brunswick did give him our hearts and our hands; in death we stand bereft, knowing full well we shall not meet his like again.”
            The county’s resolution noted that Dr. Mercer’s death left a “political void that will not easily be filled,” and said his “dedicated purpose…was virtually contagious (and) glowed like a bright star in the community he loved.”  The resolution expressed to Dr. Mercer’s family “genuine concern and sense of loss for the entire community.”
            County Commission Chairman W.G. Moran said his “life is richer through having known Dr. Joe Mercer…He was an outstanding physician…and a dedicated and dynamic person devoted to the betterment of our community.
            The Brunswick Press Club, in a letter to Mrs. Mercer expressed sympathy and expressed admiration for the late mayor’s “never-failing energy…he has left an indelible mark.”

MEYERS, Francis P.
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 23 July 1881; pg. 3 col. 4

SUDDEN DEATH—Mr. Francis P. Meyers, familiarly known as “Dock” Meyers, of this county, died very suddenly a week ago last Sunday.  He was perfectly well, apparently, and in unusual good spirits during the early morning.  After breakfast he started over to Mr. Sallins’ place, and having proceeded a few hundred yards, stopped at a negro shanty (his father’s cook’s) to get some water.  The members of the household, being about to start on a jaunt to church, he told them to go ahead, and that he would shut up the house after he had rested awhile.—Nothing more was seen of him until the family returned that evening from church, when he was found lying face downward, with his head resting on his folded arms, and one foot drawn up and lying carelessly over the knee of the other leg.  Efforts were made to rouse him, but upon examination he was found to be dead.  There were no marks of violence on his person, and the presumption is that he died of apoplexy or heart disease, and, evidently, without a struggle.

            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.

AFFRAY IN BRUNSWICK, GA.

            During the year just closing, the town of Brunswick has been more or less agitated by dissatisfaction with the present municipal officers, as we learn by the Herald of that place.  To remedy this a conservative ticket was started, but before the election, Mr. MOORE, Representative from Glynn county, had introduced one or two bills into the Legislature, and they were passed.  This only increased the excitement, and a meeting was called, at which C.W. STYLES made Sunday remarks, denouncing the manner in which these bills had been concocted and passed as that adopted by tyrants, dishonorable and fraudulent.  At this Mr. JACOB W. MOORE, (the Representative above mentioned) rose from his seat and according to the Herald replied:
            “Mr. Styles, if you say that anything I have done is dishonorable, you say that which is palpably false.”  To this Mr. Styles gave the lie, and Mr. Moore responded in like manner.  Mr. Styles—he being at one end of the building and Mr. Moore at the other—called to the persons between them to down with their heads.  The firing from revolvers then commenced.  Some say that Mr. Styles, and some that Mr. Moore fired first.  Mr. James Houston, and some one else it is said fired.  One ball took effect in Mr. Moore’s body entering towards the right side, passing through a small part of the right lungs and stomach, and lodging under the skin on the right of the spine.  He survived but about an hour.
            Friday morning an arrangement was made by which Mr. Styles should be left in the custody of his friends till a judicial examination could be had, and he then surrendered himself to the sheriff.

FATAL ACCIDENT--Mr. J. Berrien Moore, of Waycross, met with a serious accident last week, whilst in the woods looking after some hands.  It seems he had driven a mule attached to a buggy.  At a certain point where he stopped to speak to some hands, the mule for the first time saw the umbrella which Mr. M. was holding above him.  Taking fright at this, he dashed away, throwing Mr. Moore from the buggy, and injuring one of his legs very much.  Hearing of the accident, Dr. Blain, his brother-in-law, went at once for him, and brought him to this city for treatment.  All efforts, however, to restore the limb to its normal condition proved futile, and on Thursday last Dr. Blain, assisted by Drs. Burford, Hazlehurst and Davis, amputated the leg just above the knee.  During the night his symptoms grew worse, and at five o'clock yesterday morning his spirit passed away.  We are requested to announce that his funeral will take place this (Saturday) afternoon at 5:00 o'clock, from the Episcopal church.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 12 May 1883; pg. 7 col. 1

MRS. LUCY MORGAN

            Aunt Lucy Morgan is dead.  It is hard to realize that we shall never more hear her familiar foot-fall, or see again her cheerful face.  A life so pure and happy, so consecrated and true, so fraught with blessing to the world, should not be permitted to fade from the earth without some attempt to engrave its picture upon the memory of living acquaintances and friends.  As we stand beside her newly made grave, let the rush and whirl of this busy world be hushed long enough to analyze and understand the secret springs and motives of her conduct and actions.
            In this city her name has long been a household word, and a synonym for all that was “pure and lovely and of good report,” and though no longer with us, the memory of her good works will shed forth a rich fragrance for years to come.
            It was when quite young (the exact time not known) that she connected herself with the Christian church, and to the end of her long and useful life (seventy-three years) there was no swerving, faltering or turning aside, but always and everywhere the same pure, true, consecrated woman.
            Her pew in the church was never vacant, except from sickness or some absolutely unavoidable cause.  It can be truly said that she loved the church next to her Saviour.  She was deeply interested in everything pertaining to its welfare, and freely gave of her means and strength to advance the cause of Christ.  Her delight in listening to the ministration of the word was far greater than that of the average hearer.  Her frequent remark was that she never heard a dull sermon.  For years it was her custom to make and preserve copious outlines of every sermon that she heard.
            Mrs. Morgan’s gifts mentally were equal to those of her heart.  Well endowed by nature, she was also a great reader, and during her long life gathered much useful information upon a variety of subjects, but chiefly those relating to theology and the Bible.—She composed well, and was almost the solitary representative in this community of what is now a lost art—the old time custom of letter writing.
            In summing up her life in this hurried sketch we find one thing predominating—whether talking, writing or acting, there ran through all that she did—like a thread of scarlet through a skein of silk—the one single theme of consecration to Christ and devotion to the church.  But she has gone up higher, to mingle her praises with the throng around the throne, and, as we write these lines, we involuntarily exclaim, “When shall we see her like again!”  Let us inscribe upon her tomb “She hat done what she could.”

ACCIDENT TO MR. MOZO

            Information was received in the city yesterday that Mr. George D. Mozo had been fatally kicked by a mule on Tuesday night, at Mr. Jas. Bailey’s place, about four miles from the city.  From what we can learn, Mr. Mozo went out to his brother-in-law’s place at Bailey’s mills.  His wife was stopping there, and he went to pay her a visit.
            At night he went into the stable with his brother-in-law, Mr. Bailey, and started into the stall where he thought his horse was fastened.  He made [a] mistake, however, and went in to the stall occupied by a mule, who planted both feet in Mr. Mozo’s stomach, knocking him several feet away.  He was taken up and carried into the house and Dr. Hammond sent for.
            Yesterday Dr. Hammond reported that he did not think there was but little hope for his recovery.  Later in the afternoon the report came in that Mr. Mozo was dead.

MYERS, Lula (Dart)
The Brunswick Call; Thursday 3 January 1901; pg. 1 col. 6

A SAD DEATH—Mrs. H. Myers Passed Away Tuesday Morning.

            Died, at 3:30 o’clock a.m., January 1st, 1901, Lula Dart Myers, wife of Mr. H. Myers, of Tifton, Ga., and oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. R. Dart, of Brunswick, Ga.
            To live a happy, petted girlhood; to be a well-beloved wife, and to die before the cares of life and motherhood furrowed the brow, and never the bounding heart, is the happiest fat that can befall a woman.
            Such has been the lot of Lula.  Five years ago this March, she married the man of her choice, and though she went with him to live at Tifton, in the lovely little house he provided, her visits to her parents have been frequent, and each return brought to us a knowledge of her happy contentment, and the certainty that Lula was beloved by her husband’s large family circle, as she had been by her own.  When she came this Christmas there was hope of even greater happiness then the season usually brings, and when her little son was laid in her arms, and we were assured that “all was well,” our congratulations were showered on the proud parent with little thought that before three days were done, Lula would have left this world, and all its joys and sorrows forever.  Yet, such has been the case—and today we lay her sweet young body in the grave; while the grief of her husband and parents, the sobs of her sisters, sad cries of her dear little baby, fall on non-hearing ears.
            There is no comfort for thee so sadly bereft, but for her our Lula there should be only joy in her now and perfect life.
            No more nervous apprehensions, no more pain and tears for her!  From happiness to heavenly bliss, from a bed of pain to peace unspeakable, Lula has gone.

Our dear little nervous girlie,
            Painless and quite now,
With the peace of an endless restfulness
            Stamped on her marble brow,
Has gone to her home in Heaven,
            And waving her beautiful hand,
Called to us, “Come!  I am waiting,
            Safe is this sorrowless land.”
AUNT FANNIE LOU.
