Death Records in the Emmetsburg Democrat, Wednesday, May 20, 1885.
In a row between two saloon keepers of Princeton, Scott
County, John Stevenson seized a gun and perforated E. D. Smith with
shot. Thus far the doctors have taken one hundred and sixty-eight shot from
the body of Smith, who, at last count, was still alive, but in a critical
condition. Sixty-eight of the shots were found in Smith's head, and an
even hundred in his back.
Little Daisy Hammitt, was killed in Des Moines by an
accident that was peculiarly distressing. Two little girls were out playing,
when Daisy was accidentally struck on the head with something in the hands
of the other little girl, the blow cutting through the hair and scalp.
She lingered a couple of days when death came to her relief. She was only
three years old.
The case of Mrs. Elizabeth Cooper against Mills county
is now occupying the attention of the Avoca court. Mrs. Cooper sues the
county for $60,000 damages, caused by the breaking down of a bridge over which
she was driving, sustaining injuries that have crippled her for life.
Loren Walte was instantly killed by the cars at Des Moines on the evening
of the 11th. He was only 12 years old.
Michael Laughlin, a farmer near Ackley, dropped dead
from heart disease while at work in his cornfield.
Fred Brown who resided with his parents on Jack creek,
Vernon township, died Saturday morning of lung affection. About one week
ago his team ran away with him and in his efforts to stop them was
precipitated to the ground. He received some internal injuries, in all
probability, which caused his death. The funeral was attended here from the
Congregational church last Sabbath, the Reverend O. P. Champlin
In Vernon township, on Saturday, May 16, 1885, Fred Brown,
aged 18 years.
In West Bend on Monday, May 18, 1885, George Baker, aged
Miss Anna Patton died at the home of her parents at
Emmetsburg, May 8th.
Miss Anna was a bright and intelligent girl, a smart
scholar and a true christian. She left a fond father, loving mother, three
brothers and four sisters, besides a host of friends and acquaintances to
mourn her death. She was one of Emmetsburg's fairest daughters. She had
lived a virtuous, mild and gentle life, and died a happy death. She was a
model young lady and it would be well if all would follow her example
through life. She had been respected by all who knew her. Her remains were born
to the cemetery by a very large procession. The funeral service was
conducted by Rev J. J. Smith. May her soul rest in peace.
