DEATH OF WENTWORTH TAIT WAS A SHOCK TO THE ENTIRE COMMUNITY

            No death in recent years has caused more genuine sorrow than that of Wentworth Tait, the 14-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Tait, which occurred yesterday morning.  Filled with brain and brawn, the very picture of health and happiness, his taking away leaves a gap in the community which cannot be filled.
            The funeral occurred yesterday afternoon, the following friends of the young man acting as pallbearers:  C.F. Harvard, F.L. Stacy, H.M. King, Jr., Claud Dart, V.C. Bourne, T.J. McCall.  Rev. W.H. Chapman conducted the funeral and interment was in Oak Grove cemetery.
            The deceased is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.B. Tait, and his sisters, Blanche and Catherine, and one brother, Lacey.

“I KNEW HIM.”

            In all my newspaper experience and the consequent writing of hundreds of deaths, non has caused me such sorrow as Wentworth Tait.  If this sturdy young American had a fault, I never saw or heard of it.  He would often bring copy for the Bijou Theater to the News office; he always wanted to save me the trouble of taking it to the back, volunteering with that expression of earnestness I know was real; his face, his smile, showed reality.  ARTHUR LEAVY.

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.

COWARDLY MURDER—A Half-Drunken Negro Kills Officer Kid Thompson—The Faithful Policeman was Pursuing His Murderer, when he Turned and Fired the Fatal Shot.

            Officer Kid Thompson, one of the most efficient and faithful policemen, who ever served the city of Brunswick, was made the victim of a cowardly murder last night, and his dead body was surrounded by a sympathizing, horror-stricken crowd, and carried into the rotunda of the city hall, where it was viewed by a large concourse of people.
            THE STORY OF THE CRIME—At 9:45 last night, the citizens were startled by a succession of pistol shots one sounding right after the other, coming from the direction of the Acre.  The fifth shot fired did the fatal work.  None of the others, so far as is known, took effect.
            Officer Thompson, ten minutes before his death, put a negro in jail, and then went back to his beat in the Acre.  Guy Turner, who was with the officer, gives the most credible story of the shooting, he being about the only reputable eye-witness of the whole transaction.  Turner says a half-drunken negro was acting in a disorderly manner in the open space fronting on Oglethorpe street, between Markowtiz’s bar and Gus Adams’ restaurant.  Officer Thompson went towards the negro to arrest him, when the latter made a dash down Oglethorpe street toward Mansfield.  When in front of Belcher’s bar, the negro turned and fired two shots at Officer Thompson, who was pursuing him.  The officer returned the shots.  None of them took effect.  The negro had a large revolver in each hand.  Guy Turner joined in the chase.  At the northeast corner of the city hall, the negro turned and fired again.  The brave officer ran fifty feet and fell on his face back of the city hall, being shot through the heart and killed almost instantly.
            Turner, close behind, took the dead officer’s pistol from his hand and fired five shots in quick succession after the murderer, who plunged into the darkness of Grant street, running in the direction of the south end.  A large crowd gathered around the dead officer.  Chief Beach and Deputy Levison were promptly on the scene, and the body was borne into the rotunda of the city hall.  Dr. Burford arrived, and said “he is dead.”
            Sooner than seemed possible the young wife of the murdered officer arrived at the hall in a carriage.  Kind hands replaced her in the carriage and ordered the driver to return home with his grief-stricken passenger.
            WHO WAS THE MURDERER?—Mr. W.R. Odham saw the man who did the shooting when he ran down Grant street, and declares it was a rather light-skinned negro, tolerably well dressed.
            The majority of the negroes in the Acre questioned by a T.A. reporter deny knowing anything about the matter.
            Mr. Ford, collector for C. McGarvey, standing in Belcher’s bar door, looking out for money due him, saw the chase and coincides with Mr. Odham in his description of the murderer.
            Negroes living in the houses in the rear of the city hall say the man who fired the fatal shot was a negro.
            Two sailors and a small white boy were the only parties claiming to be witnesses, who told the reporter that the murderer was white.
            Under this evidence, the conclusion is inevitable that the cowardly murderer of Officer Thompson is a negro, and the only suggestion as to his identity made by those who saw him is that he is Dave Wood, well known about town.  Mr. A.H. Smith, bookkeeper for C. Arnheiter, says this was the negro’s name.
            Officer Thompson leaves a young wife, deprived of his support and companionship by red-handed assisination.
            ON THE TRAIL—At press-hour, a posse of mounted citizens are scouring the wooded portions of the city.  Bloodhounds have also been put on the trail.  The northern city limits have been cordoned.
            Undertaker Moore has taken charge of the body.

LAID TO REST—Policeman Thompson’s Body Sent to Covington—His Murderer is Still at Large—Dave Wood is the Man, and He is Said to Be Wounded.

            The coroner’s inquest on Officer Kid Thompson’s remains was held yesterday.  The following was the jury:  G.W. Calvin, foreman; W.F. Doerflinger, W.B. Moore, John Campbell, J.P. Shelly and John Baumgartner.  Their verdict was that he was murdered by Dave Woods [sic].
            The evidence introduced showed that Officer Thompson had Wood under arrest for disorderly conduct, and that while he was taking him to the police station, Wood remarked, “Don’t crowd me,” and jerked away running, Officer Thompson in pursuit.
            The principal witnesses were Guy Turner and Geo. Carroll, both of whom recognized the man as Dave Wood.
            All night Saturday and all day yesterday a large posse of men were untiring in their efforts to trail the negro.
            Blood was found in several places leading from the scene of the murder, and it is though that Wood was struck by one of the shots fired at him after he had killed Officer Thompson.
            Several other witnesses testified as to having seen him running and it is almost certain that he will be caught.
            A large number of the friends of the murdered officer visited his remains yesterday with sad hearts.
            His remains were prepared for burial by Undertaker Moore and shipped to Covington on the E.T. train last night where they will be interred today.
            Mrs. Thompson accompanied the remains to Covington.
            At the post-mortem held by Dr. H. Burford it was found that the bullet entered three inches above the left nipple, passing through the upper part of the left lung and wind pipe and right lung, lodging in the right rib, which killed him instantly.
            A REWARD—A meeting of the city council and the county commissioners will be held tomorrow night to offer a reward for the capture of Officer Thompson’s murderer.  They citizens are also raising a large sum to add to it.

The Brunswick Times-Advertiser; Tuesday 24 July 1894; pg. 1 col. 6

A LARGE REWARD—Will Be Offered for Kid Thompson’s Murderer.

            Nothing new has developed in the tracking of Dave Wood, who killed Officer Thompson.
            It is a settled fact now that he is the man that committed the crime.  It has just come to light that he went to his home on Sunday morning, about one o’clock, and that he was shot in the arm.
            No one has seen him since.  Every effort is being exhausted to capture him, and descriptions sent out to various places.
            The governor has been requested to offer a reward for his capture.
            The county commissioners are to meet this afternoon to take action in the matter of a reward.

TWO REWARDS—A Total of Three Hundred Dollars—The City Council Adds $150 to the Reward Offered by the County Commissioners.

            A reward of three hundred dollars has been offered for the capture of Dave Wood, the negro who murdered Officer Thompson last Saturday night.
            The county commissioners will offer one hundred and fifty dollars, and the city council today passed a resolution offering an additional $150.
            The authorities have used every effort to capture Woods [sic], and have so far failed to find his whereabouts.
            The reward will interest outside parties to look out for him, and very likely he will be caught soon.
            No trace of Wood can be found after he left his house Sunday morning where he was seen by a colored woman.
            The official precaution of the commissioners has not been made yet, owing to the illness of Chairman O’Connor.
            A number of citizens are still watching out for Wood in the swamps.

KID THOMPSON’S WIDOW—A Movement to Raise a Fund By the Citizen [sic] of Brunswick.

            Officer Kid Thompson, who was killed last Saturday night while on duty, and, as he was always, using his best endeavor to maintain the law and peace of our city, left a young widow.  He was her sole support.  The poor little woman will return to Brunswick and make it her home.  She is now in Covington, where she accompanied the remains of her husband.
            Kid Thompson was considered one of the bravest and most loyal officers that ever served our city, and his friends were everybody.
            A number have suggested that Brunswick’s citizen’s [sic] ought to raise a fund and present it to this deserving little woman in memory of the faithful service he has performed in protecting life and property in our city.
            Every person in town can add a mite to the list, and swell it to a good round sum.
            Chief Lewis Beach will call on you, or it can be left at THE TIMES-ADVERTISER office.  Every day a list will be published showing how the fund stands and giving the names of those who have contributed.
            It is a most worthy object and the T.-A. hopes that Brunswick people will see to it that Kid Thompson’s widow is provided for.
            Put your name down if only for a small amount.
            Savannah and other cities have on several occasions been very prompt to assist the families of policemen who met their death while on duty, and Brunswick should do so.
            The T.-A. starts the list with $5.00.

            Brunswick, Ga., September 25—(Special)—Frank Tillotson, the 14-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Tillotson, passed away at the city hospital early yesterday morning as the result of lockjaw, caused by a low on the head which the youngster received while at play.  Young Tillotson and another boy of about the same age were playing in the yard of the dead boy, when his playmate threw an iron rod on the top of the house.  It rolled off and struck Tillotson on the head.  At first it was not thought the injury was serious, but the following day lockjaw set in, and although everything possible was done at the city hospital for the young man, it was to no avail.

Death of Hon. John M. Tison

            It becomes our painful duty to announce the death of one of Glynn's true and tried citizens, Hon. John M. Tison, which occurred during Tuesday night last, at his home near Jamaica, in this county.  He has been a great sufferer with rheumatism for years past, and a few months ago he became so feeble that a trip to the Hot Springs was thought advisable.  The trip proved of no avail, and he came home to die.  Few men have figured more prominently in the history of our county than Hon. John M. Tison.  Having resided here from his birth, he has been prominent in its affairs for nearly a half century, and has emphatically grown with the country, both in wealth and popularity.  He has several times represented the county and district in the halls of the Legislature, and now, at the ripe old age of nearly seventy, has quietly passed away.

            The many friends of Mr. and Mrs. R.M. Tison sympathize with them in the loss of their little infant baby.  True he has been with them but a short while but long enough to have woven around him cords of affection anchored in the hearts of both mother and father to tear asunder which caused them both pangs known only to those who have passed through the same ordeal.

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?

HENRY TODD IS NO LONGER

            To some of us this announcement may seem of little importance, but a larger majority will droop their heads in silent sorrow.  And this sorrow will not be confined to the many unfortunate poor of his own race who have received timely aid and succor at his hands.  All who knew him intimately, white or colored, will join in his praise.  The most prejudiced and narrow-minded will be forced to admit that the colored blood which courses through his veins neither deprecates his value as a citizen, nor obscured his brightness as an industrious, honest and worthy fellow being.  We will not go into details about his sphere of usefulness, nor extol his virtues, but in full sympathy with all the good people of Darien, we think it only due to express our regret for one who has been a good and useful citizen and who has set his race an example which for a long time should operate favorably as an impetus to their moral and financial advancement.  Mr. Todd was buried from the Presbyterian church on Wednesday last at two o’clock, the Rev. J.N. Bradshaw officiating.  The following gentlemen acted as pall-bearers:  A.C. Wylly, E.P. Champney, Louis Collat, Adam Strain, Jas. Walker and A.E. Dimmock.

AN AGED CITIZEN PASSES TO REST—H.O. TOLNAS DIED LAST NIGHT FOLLOWING ACCIDENT A FEW DAYS AGO

            H.O. Tolnas, for over twenty-five years a well known resident of Brunswick, passed away at the city hospital last night following an illness caused by a fall which he had from a wagon several days ago.  At first Mr. Tolnas’ condition was not thought to be serious, and remained at home on George street a few days after the accident, later being removed to the city hospital.
            Mr. Tolnas was 65 years of age and was a native of Norway.  He is survived by two sons, Triygive [sic], who sailed only a few days ago on a trip to Norway, and Olaf, a young attorney of Athens, who is just recovering from a serious illness.
            During the past few years this aged citizen has been the victim of unusual sadness in his household.  Four or five years ago his wife passed away, leaving her husband and four sons.  Mr. Tolnas and his four sons lived together in a larger house at the corner of George and Carpenter streets, all of the boys being industrious, two of them working their way through the University of Georgia.  Over two years ago Paul, then about 18 years of age, met with a fatal accident and was killed at the Yaryan plant.  Young Gunner Tolnas at the time collector for the Brunswick Bank and Trust Company, was one of the Monroe Phillips victims, of eighteen months ago, the young man being shot in that terrible tragedy.  He lingered for a few days and finally died off his injuries.
            Mr. Tolnas was a shipbuilder by trade, and ruing his long residence in Brunswick has built many small crafts.  Since work was started on the three-masted schooner by the Brunswick Shipbuilding Company several months ago, he has been in active charge of most of the work, and was a stockholder in that company.
            Mr. Tolnas was a consistent member of the Baptist church, and that funeral will be in charge of that Norwegian contingent of the city.
            Funeral services will be held at 3 o’clock this afternoon from the First Baptist church, A. Larson officiating.  Interment will be made at Oak Grove cemetery.  The following men will act as pallbearers:  John Olson, John Larson, C.O. Olson, Capt. Thomas Peter Kniunson[?] and Capt. Lalin[?].

            After an illness extending over several months, Mrs. Marie Tolnas, wife of the well-known shipbuilder, H.O. Tolnas, passed away at the city hospital at 9 o’clock last night.  Funeral arrangements had not been perfected at a late hour last night but the services will be conducted from the First Baptist church this afternoon or on Sunday morning.
            Deceased was 52 years of age and a native of Norway.  A husband and four sons survive.  One of these, Olaff, is a student at Athens and will reach home this morning.
            Mrs. Tolnas had staunch friends and was a woman of firm faith.  Death came as a relief to her long suffering.

CAUGHT IN MACHINERY AND DASHED TO DEATH

            Brunswick, Ga., February 4—(Special)—The body of young Paul Tolnas, who was killed at the plant of the Yaryan Naval Stores company, was laid to rest in Oak Grove cemetery today.  The tragic death of this well-known young man cast a shadow of gloom over the city.
            The young man was one of the oilers at the large factory, and was in the act of oiling a large conveyor when a portion of his clothing was caught in the machinery, and in the twinkling of an eye he was dashed to death.  His body was terribly mangled and he died before medical aid reached him.  The young man was just 19 years of age, and had been a resident of Brunswick all of his life.

TOLNAS FAMILY IS NEARLY WIPED OUT—Three of Four Brothers Meet Tragic Deaths Within Five Years—Two Killed at Brunswick.

            BRUNSWICK, Jan. 4—Ensign Trygive [sic] Tolnas, who lost his life in airplane [sic] accident in Pensacola, Fla., on Tuesday, was buried in this city today beside two other brothers of the popular young officer, both of whom met tragic deaths.  The young officer, who was reared in Brunswick, was well known and popular among many friends in Brunswick, and the news of his death came as a great shock to them.
            Years and years ago H. Tolnas, a Norwegian by birth, removed to Brunswick.  He was a ship carpenter by trade, and worked at his trade for years.  Soon after arriving here he started work on a home, building it piece by piece whenever he had time, moving into it when only one room was completed and adding room by room until he finally had a large comfortable home.  There were four little sons, all of whom were raised in Brunswick; they were energetic, worthy-hard-working boys, attended the local schools, always being among the brightest in their classes.
            The first tragedy that befell the happy family was five years ago when Paul, the youngest of the boys, met with a horrible accident at the plant of the Yaryan Rosin and Turpentine Company, where he was employed, resulting in his death.  He was a bright boy, popular among all who knew him, and the awful tragedy cast a gloom of sorrow over the entire city.
            Again, when Monroe Phillips went on his rampage in Brunswick three years ago, killing some eight or nine people and wounding thirty others, another member of the Tolnas family met death.  It was Gunner, at the time employed at the Brunswick Bank and Trusty Company, having completed his high school education.  He too, was an unusually popular young man, with hundreds of friends in the city.  In the meantime the father of the boys had passed away, and this left two brothers, Olaf and Trygive [sic].
            The older, Olaf, had removed to Athens, where he had attended the University.  Meeting with a certain degree of success in his profession of lawyer, he sent for his younger and older brother, Trygive, and paid his expenses through the State University.  He graduated in the class of 1916 and share first honors with Sam Brown Lippett, of Albany.
            He later entered and graduated from the Washington Law School and first entered the Government service in the reclamation department and from there he joined the aviation branch of the service, receiving an ensign’s commission.  He was assigned to the naval air station at Pensacola, Fla., where he had been flying for some time.  He met death on Tuesday when the machine in which he was flying fell to the ground.  Full details of the accident have never been received in the city.
            Grief-stricken, the only remaining brother arrived in the city yesterday to attend the funeral of the third brother he had lost within five years, and he is now left without a living relative in this country.  He has received the sympathy of the entire city in his latest sad bereavement.
            Thus out of a family of four promising young men, three have been tragically killed before they had hardly attained their majority.

DR. J.M. TOOMEY, RETIRED DENTIST, DIES IN HOSPITAL

            Grant Troup, 54 years of age and a resident of Brunswick and Glynn county all of his life, was found dead in his room in this city Sunday morning shortly after 9 o’clock.  Physicians announced that his death was due to heart failure.  Mr. Troup retired as usual Saturday night in apparently good health.  Sunday morning he did no reply when he was called as usual, and on investigation he was found dead.  It is thought that he had been dead for several hours.

            The deceased was a brother of Governor TROUP of this State.  He has held many important and responsible positions in civil life with honour and credit.  He was a distinguished gentleman, intelligent and hospitable, and those who had the pleasure of his acquaintance will always remember him with affection and respect.

DEATH STILLED HER VOICE—The Sad News That Flashed Across the Cable Wires.

            That was sad news that flashed across the cable wires yesterday afternoon from Paris, bringing to a Brunswick household agonizing sorrow and plunging into depths of sorrow a fond, admiring circle of friends.
            The cablegram announced that Miss Daisy Troup had just died suddenly, of heart disease, in the capital city of France.
            Miss Troup was the daughter of Mrs. Troup and the sister of Mr. Robert Troup fo this city.  Six years ago she left home to complete her education and, in New York, it was her fortuned to be under the training of a master of vocal and music whose fame was measured by no small standard.  This professor told Miss Troup that she had a fortune in her voice, and offered her the benefit of his instruction; provided she would sing at his concerts.  In the musicales of New York society Miss Troup’s voice won her flattering notice, and she finally determined to devote her life to the operatic stage.  After a visit home, she went to Europe and, at the time of her sad death, was preparing herself for her debut in grand opera, which was to occur the coming winter.
            Young, beautiful, gifted far beyond the meed of the generality of women, death, in its sudden and successful attack, removes a star of the great art world and loosens the silken cord of a life that was all attuned to heaven’s symphonies.
            The announcement fell with shocking force upon the aged mother, who has been in feeble health for some time, and she is completely prostrated.

The Brunswick Times-Advertiser; Sunday 16 June 1895; pg. 4 col. 1

            The remains of Miss Daisy Troup will probably be brought from Paris to Brunswick for burial.

DIED AFTER HER SWAN SONG—Full cable details of the death of Miss Daisy Troup, published in the New York papers, state that Miss Troup, at the request of her instructor sang before M. Carvaiho, manager of the great Opera Comique.  M. Carvaiho praised her work enthusiastically.  Miss Troup fainted from the excitement of the moment and died from heart failure in two hours.  The remains were embalmed and placed in a chapel.  They will be shipped from Paris Saturday and will reach here in ten days.  Mr. Robert Troup, brother of the deceased, has gone to New York to meet the body and attend to the transportation to Brunswick.

The Brunswick Times-Advertiser; Wednesday 10 July 1895; pg. 4 col. 2

OVER THE SEA TO A GRAVE—The remains of Miss Daisy Troup reached the city at 7:30 this morning, from Paris via New York, accompanied by the brother of the deceased, Mr. Robert Troup.  The funeral services were held at St. Mark’s Episcopal church at 11 o’clock this morning.  Rector H.E. Lucas conducting them.  A large number of friends of the family gathered at the church to pay the last tribute of respect to the fair, dead singer.  The remains were interred in the family lot, Oak Grove cemetery.  The sad story of Miss Troup’s death has been fully told in these columns, and the funeral today puts a gloomy period to a sweet life, full of such great promise.  For the stricken relatives there is a greater meed [sic] of sympathy than death usually brings to utterance, and in their grief there is not the added pain of those who weep alone.
