ULLMER, David W.
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 7 March 1885; pg. 3 col. 4

            ‘Tis sad to chronicle the death of a true friend and noble gentleman.—This we must do in the demise of Mr. D.W. Ullmer, which took place on February 27th, 1885, at 1:30 p.m.—The deceased was engaged upon the rice plantation of Col. Owens, where at all hours he was attentive to the interests entrusted to him.  As a rice planter he had few equals.  He made friends of every class, and had not an enemy among white or black.  Everyone knew him to be a man of worth.  He was charitable to the last degree, and always ready to lend a helping hand to the needy.  His funeral ceremonies were conducted on Sunday by the Masonic fraternity at Folkston, of which he was a member.  O, friend and brother, when again shall we greet thee?  On that celestial shore where no pain is known.  Thy sister and they brothers and thy friend will ever mourn they loss—but stop! can we ask him back?  No, he is far happier now, and in meek submission we bow.  DON SANCHO.

MRS. ULSCH PASSES AWAY EARLY TODAY IN JACKSONVILLE

            News was received in this city today of the death in Jacksonville shortly after midnight of Mrs. George Ulsch, for many years a well known and beloved Brunswick woman, who still has an unusually large number of friends in Brunswick.
            Mrs. Ulsch, who was 80 years of age, spent her entire early life in Brunswick, removing to Jacksonville a number of years ago when her son, Malcolm W. Ulsch, was transferred to that city.  He had represented the lumber firm of R.R. Sizer & Co., in Brunswick for years and was later promoted and transferred to Jacksonville.
            The deceased was a most lovable character and will be remembered by many of Brunswick’s oldest residents for her kindness, her charitable and religious work.  She was practically all of her life a member of the First Methodist church.
            Short funeral services will be held at the home in Jacksonville at 10 o’clock tomorrow morning.  The funeral cortege, in charge of Undertaker Edo Miller, will then leave that city and come to Brunswick.  The body will be carried to the home of Miss Jennie Franklin, 801 Monk street, where it will remain until 3:45 when the funeral will be held from the First Methodist church, Rev. W.P. Blevins and Rev. T.B. Sanford, of Douglas, conducting the services.  The following friends will act as pall bearers:  D.W. Krauss, H.F. duBignon, J.S.M. Symons, W.H. Greenfield, L.J. Leavy, Jr., R.G. Harley.  The interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery.

DEATH BY SUFFOCATION

            A man was found dead one day last week on board the barkentine Lotus, and a coroner’s jury rendered a verdict “that his death was occasioned from suffocation.”  It appears that he had been indulging in ardent spirits too freely during the early part of the previous night, and that he became so intoxicated, he fell, in the tool room of the vessel, face down in a bundle of loose oakum, and being too drunk to move after falling, died from suffocation.  What a lesson this sad fate should be to those who imbibe in the poisonous and ruinous liquid?

VERNER, J. Wyly
Historical Newspapers, Birth, Marriage, & Death Announcements, 1851-2003; The Atlanta Constitution; 11 December 1892

A PROMISING YOUNG MAN DIES AT HIS FATHER’S RESIDENCE LAST NIGHT

            Mr. J. Wyly Verner, a bright and promising young and died at the residence of his father, Mr. J.J. Verner, on Hilliard street, last night, a few minutes after 7 o’clock.
            Mr. Verner was a well-known young business man and for quite a while he resided in Brunswick, Ga., where he was reckoned as one of the best stenographers of that city.
            He was stricken, however, about a month ago, with typhoid pneumonia.
            Steps were immediately taken for bringing the sufferer to Atlanta, and here, after his arrival, he was given every attention.
            The skill of the best physicians, however, was powerless against the encroachments of that malady which was fated to take his life.
            He was patiently resigned to his lot and met the approach of death with a calm and heroic fortitude.
            Mr. Verner has many friends in Atlanta who will be greatly shocked to learn of his sad death.
