S. H. Moon paid a glowing tribute to the worth and noble qualities of the deceased.  Truly she was an honored wife, an idolized mother and an esteemed neighbor, and many beside her relatives were sincere mourners at the funeral.  (Tuesday, March 27, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Albert H. Westbrook
Last Wednesday morning between six and seven o’clock, Mr. Albert H. Westbrook, a well-to-do farmer residing about a mile and a half below Tioga borough, committed suicide by cutting his throat with a butcher knife.  It seems that Mr. Westbrook and a boy named Milton Barber went to the barn to do the chores before breakfast.  Mr. Westbrook soon told the boy to go to the tobacco-shed and help the workmen in sorting tobacco, and about 15 minutes later Mrs. Westbrook called the men to breakfast.  After waiting a few moments for Mr. Westbrook to come in, search was made for him, and he was found in the barn lying in one of the stalls, dead, with a horrible gash in his throat and the bloody knife lying by his side.  Justice of the Peace W. T. Urell was notified, and he summoned a Coroner’s jury composed of Messrs. D. L. Aiken, Stephen Andrus, G. G. Reynolds, William Kimball, J. A. Prutsman and C. F. Miller, who, after hearing the evidence, arrived at the conclusion that the deceased came to his death by his own hand.  Mr. Westbrook was about 54 years of age and was a native of Middlebury township.  By good management he had accumulated a nice property; but he was subject to fits of melancholy, and imagined that he was to lose his possessions.  It is thought that while in a mood of despondency he committed the suicidal act.  He leaves a wife and three children.  (Tuesday, April 3, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Thompson, Jr., member of Congress for the Eighth Kentucky district, shot and killed Walter Davis, a popular business man of Harrodsburg.  Sixteen years ago Thompson married Mollie Garnett, the belle of Mercer county.  Some years afterward she fell seriously ill, and her physician prescribed ale.  The habit of drinking grew on her despite her husband’s efforts.  Last November, as he started for Washington, his wife came as far as Cincinnati with him, stopping with a friend, a Mrs. Buckner, at the St. Clair Hotel.  After Mr. Thompson left his wife met Walter Davis, a friend, who had registered at the same hotel under a false name, and he persuaded her to remain over night and attend the theater instead of returning home immediately, as she had intended.  He managed to get her to drinking, and after their return from the theater he took her to his room, saying it was Mrs. Buckner’s.  He kept here there some time and then turned her out into the hall, where she was found by the watchman.  She was intoxicated, and was taken care of by Mrs. Buckner, who wrote to Mr. Thompson about the affair.  Mrs. Thompson went to Washington to be reconciled, but her husband refused to have anything more to do with her.  He arranged to pay her $600 a year, and allowed her to keep their son and to live at the homestead, he retaining his daughter, 15 years old.  Recently Mr. Thompson went from Washington to Cincinnati and saw the proprietor of the St. Clair Hotel.  He then obtained the full story of his wife’s dishonor and Davis’s treachery.  He did not before know of anything worse than his wife’s intoxication, and on finding out Davis’s treachery he became nearly frantic.  He went home, and after arranging some matters he took the train Friday morning for Lexington.  Davis, who was leaving for Chicago, came into the car and nodded or spoke to Mr. Thompson.  The latter at once said, “You--do you speak to me?” and drew his pistol.  Davis retreated down the steps and Thompson fired through the window, the ball striking Davis in the head.  He rolled down the steps and off the train, dead.  His body was at once returned to Harrodsburg, and on the same train Thompson returned.  Going into open court, he interrupted the Judge and told his story in full and gave himself up.  The Judge held him in $5,000 bail, which was at once given.  He was afterward indicted for murdering Davis.  (Tuesday, May 8, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Orlonzo Bullard
A week ago last Tuesday Mr. Orlonzo Bullard, of this borough, left home and went to Tioga, where he stopped with Dr. A. J. Fisk.  On Saturday morning, May 26th, he left Tioga for Iowa to visit some relatives living there.  Last Wednesday a telegram was received in this borough from Mr. Albert Donovan of Mason City, Iowa, announcing Mr. Bullard’s death at that place from an overdose of opium.  The following news article from the Mason City Republican of last Thursday gives a full account of the case:  “Mr. Orlonzo Bullard, of Wellsboro, Pa., died at the Merchant’s Hotel just before two o’clock Wednesday morning from the effects of an overdose of opium.  “Mr. Bullard arrived in this city on the eastern train Monday for the purpose of visiting his cousin, Albert Donovan, whom he had not seen for nearly 20 years.  He registered as H. M Lewis, New York, and sat around for an hour or two before he made himself known, waiting to see if Mr. Donovan would recognize him.  Monday evening he telegraphed to his sister-in-law and niece at Gifford to come here, and also to his brother, David Bullard, of Osage, to come, as he intended staying a week and then was going West to visit three brothers of Mr. Donovan, and was anticipating much pleasure from his visits.  “Tuesday at the supper table it was observed that he was rather drowsy, and Landford Donovan after supper advised him to lie down awhile; but he sat down in the office, leaning against the desk, and appearing very sleepy.  Donovan spoke to him at 7:30; but he answered so disconnectedly that he concluded that he would let him sleep while he went out a few minutes.  Just before 8 o’clock it was noticed that he breathed strangely, and when the attempt was made to arouse him it was found that he was unconscious.  “Drs. Blythe and Dakin were summoned at once, and every effort possible made to arouse him, but to no effect.  Drs. Osborne and Washburn were also called at this juncture.  The medical gentleman suspected poison, as the symptoms indicated it, but could find nothing to sustain their suspicions, and had nearly concluded to call it apoplexy, when Dr. Dakin found a paper containing gum opium in his hip pocket, purchased from a druggist of this city.  Drs. Dakin, Blythe and Osborne made every effort to arouse him from his stupor, but without success, and at ten minutes before two he ceased to breathe.  “Deceased was about 48 years of age, and had letters in his pockets addressed to “My Dear Christian Brother,” which showed that he was a working Church-member at home.  He leaves no children, but a wife to whom he was devotedly attached.  His remains will be forwarded to Wellsboro for burial.  “The cause of the sad affair was from every indication accidental.  It is said deceased was an habitual user of opium in moderate quantities, and it is believed that he accidentally took to much, with the result as above.  There was no indication of despondency or trouble in the man’s actions.  He was well dressed, had a gold watch and plenty of money on his person, and as he was known to have a well-to-do merchant at his home city, it is difficult to come to other conclusion that his death resulted from accident and not intention.”  Mr. Bullard’s remains were sent home for burial, reaching here on the noon train Saturday and the funeral occurred in the afternoon.  (Tuesday, June 5, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Lebulon Davis

Mr. Peter Strouse
Mr. Peter Strouse, aged about 21 years, died a few days ago near Meeckville, Berks county, in terrible agony.  About a month before his death he was out on a hill and came across a large poisonous snake.  The reptile attacked Mr. Strouse, and while he was in the act of picking up a club to dispatch it he was bitten severely in the leg.  He did not say anything to his family about his adventure.  His body began to swell enormously and he became dangerously ill.  Physicians were summoned, but could give him no relief.  Several women, commonly called “Pow-wowers,” tried all their power to relieve the sufferer, but all to no avail.  The young man’s mouth and throat became gangrenous and all his teeth fell out shortly before death.  The man could not tell what kind of a serpent bit him.  (Tuesday, June 5, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Roswell Ackley
Clymer, June 4, 1883.--Mr. Roswell Ackley died of pneumonia, at his residence in Clymer township, on Thursday, May 31, 1883, in the 79th year of his age.  Mr. Ackley was born in Tompkins county, NY, March 14, 1805.  He came to this State about 35 years ago, and settled on the farm where he has ever since resided.  His father died when he was eight years old and his mother when he was 13.  Left an orphan thus early in life, without money and obliged to depend upon himself, he formed those habits of self reliance and industry which characterized his after life.  He was just such a man as this country most needs--active, energetic, self-reliant and of uncompromising integrity.  Perhaps no man in this community has done more to reclaim this country from the wilderness and bring it to its present prosperous condition than Roswell Ackley.  The fruits of his labor are to be seen on every side in the beautiful and fertile fields and the numerous buildings which dot the landscape in every direction, enduring monuments of his industry and skill.  He has left his “footprints on the sands of time.”  When the demon of war broke loose he stood firm and loyal by the old flag.  Too old to go to the front himself, he freely gave his six stalwart sons for the preservation of the Union, all of whom he was permitted to see return to their homes.  Such was the confidence of the boys of his acquaintance at the front in his integrity that they made him the custodian of their funds.  Their confidence was never betrayed; and although the services he rendered the soldiers were many and sometimes arduous he would never accept a penny from them in return.  He united with the M. E. Church at the age of 23, and was an honored member at the time of his death.  He leaves an aged wife and seven children and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss.  Having been often called upon to settle the estates of his deceased neighbors, there are those to whom he has been a guardian and a father who will always remember him with love and regret.  Although everything that money and skill could devise was done to keep him with us, his work was done, and after eight days of sickness he yielded up his spirit to his Father and his God.  In the little church near his home, which his own hands helped to rear and which had been his special care, the funeral services were held, Rev. Mr. Howland preaching from Job xiv., 14.  Many were unable to gain admission to the house, which was nearly filled with mourning friends.  By his own request his favorite hymn was sung:  “There is a gate that stands ajar.”  A. S.  (Tuesday, June 12, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Horace Childs
Horace Childs, a young many was killed by lightning while plowing in a field, near Norristown, Montgomery county, last Wednesday afternoon.  His horse was also killed.  (Tuesday, June 12, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. O. H. P. Disbrow
Mr. O. H. P. Disbrow, a well-known hotel-keeper at Towanda, Bradford county, was killed on the 3d instant by falling from a high precipice in Ulster township while on the road to his farm.  He started with a horse and buggy from Towanda at about 9 o’clock in the evening and the next morning his dead body, the horse, also dead, and the fragments of the buggy were found in the bed of the old canal under a steep bank of 200 feet high.  He watch found in his pocket was somewhat damaged, and had stopped at about 11 o’clock, showing that this was probably about the time of the accident.  The road is about 30 feet wide at the point where the man drove off, and the track of the wagon showed that he had driven very crookedly.  Mr. Disbrow was about 60 years of age, and he had lived in Towanda for 20 years.  (Tuesday, June 12, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Male Nelson
At the Gaines Tannery, June 10, 1883, an infant son of Mr. D. K. Nelson.  This is the second time within a few weeks that this family have been afflicted by the hand of death.  On the 29th of April their son Alvin L., after a lingering illness, was taken to his rest among the many mansions which God has prepared for those who fully trust in Him, and now for some wise purpose unknown to mortals, their little darling has been called to meet his brother.  Mr. Nelson has been among us but a short time, but long enough to win a place in our hearts, and now has the sympathy of the entire community in this hour of deep affliction.  A. G. C.  (Tuesday, June 12, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Angela D. Potter
At Wellsboro, June 6, 1883, of debility, Mrs. Angela D. Potter, aged 45 years.  Mrs. Potter was born at Tioga on the 27th of February 1838.  She leaves a large circle of sorrowing friends to mourn the loss of a pure, upright, Christian woman.  Though suffering nearly all her life from an acute disease yet she was an active and thorough worker in all the departments of Christian and social labor.  In her too brief life she has stamped the love and energy of her nature on all the interests with which she has been connected.  The causes of temperance missions and the various schemes of Christian benevolence lose in her a stanch and earnest helper.  Mrs. Potter was married on the 27th of May, 1856.  Shortly after she was converted, and then began the useful life that has just closed.  For a long time she was connected with the Middlebury Baptist Church, but removing to Wellsboro in July, 1878, she became a member of the Baptist Church of this place--a connection that continued until her decease.  Memorial services were held in the church here last Sunday, a very large concourse of friends being present and Rev. S. F. Mathews officiating.  The theme of his discourse was the very appropriate one in this case of “The Christian’s Triumph in Death” -- grandly and truly illustrated in the closing hours of this truly noble and lamented Christian woman.  (Tuesday, June 12, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Chris John Watkins

Nicholas L. Dukes
Nicholas L. Dukes, who killed Captain A. C. Nutt last December, was killed by James Nutt, the oldest son of the Captain, at Uniontown, Fayette county, last Wednesday evening.  Nutt shot at him five times, four of the shots taking effect.  At seven o’clock in the evening, when numbers of people were going to the Post-office after their mail, James Nutt was standing on the corner of Main and Pittsburgh streets.  N. L. Dukes went by to go to the Post-office.  Nutt was talking to some companions.  As he saw Dukes go by he drew a self-cocking revolver and fired two shots at Dukes.  The latter started to run.  As he stepped upon the Post-office steps Nutt fired three more shots.  The first two shots took effect in the left side of Dukes’s back, and one of the latter grazed his ankle-bone; one missed him, and the other hit him in the back very close to where the other two struck.  Dukes fell in the Post-office, and, as one of his friends ran to his side, he tried to say something, but he died without his last words being understood.  When Nutt began to fire a policeman ran across the street, and as he fired the last shot the officer caught hold of his hand.  Nutt said, “Take this,” and handed him the revolver.  The policeman said, “You have made a pretty piece of work.”  Nutt answered, “Yes, but I couldn’t help it.”  Nutt, who was calm but very pale, was taken to the jail.  The Coroner’s inquest was held in Dukes’s room, the same in which he shot Captain Nutt.  The body was laid on the floor, and when stripped it was found that two of the bullets had passed nearly through the body, one over the breast bone and the other three inches below the nipple.  These two bullets were cut out, and upon probing for the other it was found in the muscular tissues of the heart.  The examination was postponed until Thursday morning.  While the inquest was going on one of Dukes’s friends came in and said that Miss Mary Beeson wanted Dukes’s keys.  The Coroner answered that he had the keys, and would keep them until Dukes’s mother came and got them.  There has been a strong friendship between this lady and Dukes since the shooting of Nutt and long before, and it is said they were engaged to be married.  When Dukes was stripped there was found a self cocking revolver, No. 32, in his right hand hip pocket and a bowie knife buckled to his suspender on the right side.  The blade of the knife was about four inches long.  Dukes has always been afraid of Nutt, but he did not suppose that he would attack him so suddenly nor be such a good shot.  (Tuesday, June 19, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Jacob Good
Mr. Jacob Good, of Mifflin township, Lycoming county, while on the road to the house of a neighbor, a few days ago, saw a cow choking on some substance that had lodged in its throat.  It became at once apparent to Mr. Good that if some relief was not at once given to the animal, death would soon ensue.  Mr. Good then shoved his hand down the cow’s throat and forced the obstruction through, and in so doing the back of his hand was slightly scratched by coming in contact with the cow’s grinders.  No attention was paid to this at the time, but during the night the hand began to swell, the inflammation gradually extending up the arm.  A physician was called, but no avail, and Mr. Good died a few days after.  He was 67 years of age.  (Tuesday, June 19, 1883, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
