SUDDEN DEATH OF OLD SERVANT—For Many Years a Faithful Servant in Family of Judge Crovatt.

            There will be genuine sorrow expressed by a very large number of white people when they learn of the death of “Mammy Sue,” who has been faithful servant in the family of Judge A.J. Crovatt for the past thirty years.
            Everybody knew “Mammy Sue”; she had been so identified with the family of “her people” as to be one of them.
            Born in Charleston, a slave, Susan Abbot [sic], as she was known, was brought to St. Simons Island and was the servant of the Hazzard family there.  At the close of the war, Susan became a member of the family of Col. C.L. Schlatter, the father of Mrs. A.J. Crovatt.  After the marriage of Miss Mary Lee Schlatter to Mr. A.J. Crovatt, “Mammy Sue” went with her young mistress and was the nurse of three children of Judge and Mrs. Crovatt.  As the widow of a soldier in the Federal Army during the war, Mammy Sue was awarded a pension by the government.  Though her husband fought on the Federal side, Mammy Sue staid [sic] with her “own people.”
            Famous as a cook, devoted to the interests of those with whom she had been so many years, the death of Mammy Sue removes another of the rare ante-bellum negroes.
            Her illness was of only a few hours duration; the young daughter of the house, Mary Lee Crovatt, had gone to see the old woman at ten o’clock to giver her a cup of tea; Mammy did not complain of being ill, and had been about her usual duties all day yesterday.  Though eighty years of age, Mammy Sue was remarkably active, and was in full control of all her faculties.  At one o’clock another of the servants heard the old woman calling, and Miss Crovatt and her brother went to the room in the servants’’ house.  When the door was opened, Mammy Sue was unconscious and died with(in) a few minutes.  Four children survive, Thomas and Joseph Abbot and Eliza Cuyler, all of whom live on St. Simons.  Another son, Randolph Abbot, being in Charleston.  The body will be carried to St. Simons where it will be interred tomorrow.

FUNERAL OF MAMMY SUE HELD ON ST. SIMONS

            The body of Susan Abbott, or “Mammy Sue” the aged servant of Judge A.J. Crovatt, was carried to St. Simons this morning for interment.
            Services were held last night in the First African Baptist Church, of which church, Mammy Sue had long been a member.

ABRAMS, Matilda (Borchardt)

DEATH OF MRS. J.B. ABRAMS—Passed Away Last Night After a Long Illness

            Mrs. Tillie B. Abrams, wife of Joseph B. Abrams, died shortly after nine o’clock last night at the residence of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. Borchardt, on Grant Street.
            Mrs. Abrams has been very ill for several months due to an acute attack, of nervous prostration, superinduced by a complication of other maladies. Some three months ago she was taken to St. Joseph’s Infirmary in Atlanta, in the hope that the treatment of this well-known seat of scientists would be conducive to her condition. However, the treatment was in vain, and she gradually grew worse, and only a few weeks ago was returned to Brunswick, every recourse at St. Joseph’s having been resorted to in her behalf.
            Mrs. Abrams was a woman of rare accomplishments and was gifted with all of those social graces that make home and the fireside a joy forever. In her untimely death, beside her parent’s and a number of sisters and brothers, she leaves a devoted husband and three children, Victor, Frances Elizabeth and Mariam, to mourn her loss. To those who have been deprived of those edifying influences of her gentle tenderness, The News extends its deepest condolence, and indulges the hope that the great Master Planner for this apparent hardship will gently touch the refining fires of his inscrutiable [sic] will that somewhere in the future may reflect a ray of light into the desolateness of the hearthstone which has been made so sadly dark in the present hour.
            The death of Mrs. Abrams came in the nature of a severe shock to the members of the family, from which they have not yet recovered, and accordingly no funeral arrangements have as yet been announced. Absent members of the family have been advised of the sad bereavement, and the funeral will not occur until Friday pending their arrival.
            Mrs. Abrams was formerly Miss Tillie Borchardt; was born and raised in Brunswick, and was held in high esteem by a large circle of friends. She was married to Mr. Joseph B. Abrams in 1889, and was just 31 years old. The news of her death will be a subject of universal sorrow among her many friends.

FUNERAL THIS MORNING—All That Is Mortal of Mrs. J.B. Abrams to be Laid to Rest

            The funeral of Mrs. J.B. Abrams, whose very sad death was chronicled in these columns yesterday, will occur from the residence of Mr. and Mrs. A. Borchardt at nine o’clock this morning, conducted by Rev. I.P. Mendes, of Savannah.
            Few deaths in the history of this city have occasioned as much genuine sorrow as has this one and throughout yesterday many floral tributes were received at the home expressive of the love and esteem in which the deceased was held by her countless friends in the city.
            Among the absent members of the family who arrived last night to attend the funeral were Mrs. Dr. Weixalbaum and Mrs. Abrahams of Savannah and Mr. Mord Abrams of [illegible] and Mr. Samuel Borchardt of Tampa.
            The interment will occur in Oak grove cemetery, and the funeral cortege will in all probability be one of the most imposing ever seen in Brunswick.
            The deceased from her very infancy has lived in this city and by reason of her charming personality, sunny disposition and many womanly graces had endeared herself to every one [sic] who knew her.
            To those dear little motherless children and to that grief-stricken husband, as well as heartbroken parents, brothers and sisters, The News again tenders its truest sympathy in this very sad hour of their bereavement and despair.

Dana and Botford, road physicians, but was denied permission to board the train. He was not to be foiled, however, and securing a livery team drove to the four mile crossing.

            A SCENE NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN.

            Walking back about 500 yards he came upon a scene not soon to be forgotten. Across the track and lying on its side was engine No. 206, with the left driving-wheels in the air and the smoke-stack buried some three feet in the earth. Behind it, and three or four feet from the track, the coal box was turned bottom up with a flat box car piled across.

            TWO MEN COLD IN DEATH.

            Beneath these two men were cold in death. One, the engineer, lay beneath the ponderous wheels of the engine and only his head and shoulders could be seen through the debris.
            A few feet back lay the fireman, crushed and bleeding, though he had evidently died from suffocation by the steam.
            In the woods just a few feet from the wreck another man lay on a stretcher uttering fearful groans while the doctor was carefully bandaging the limbs that were scorched and bleeding.

            HIS FLESH SLOUGHED OFF.

            Even while he worked the flesh would slough from the bones on his lower extremities. This was Yardmaster Robinett. The two bodies under the wreck were those of Engineer George Douglass and Fireman Joseph Ames. The two negroes had been brought to town.
            While the wounded man was being made as comfortable as was possible wreckers were at work digging out the dead. This was at last accomplished, and the special started back to Brunswick with hits ghastly load.
            Facts were hard to learn in regard to the cause of the accident, but as near as can be obtained are as follows:

            CAUSE OF THE ACCIDENT.

            The track from the four-mile crossing, the scene of the disaster, to town, is laid with chair-iron rails, so-called on account of the peculiar clamp with which they are fastened to the track. The engine was being backed to town tender forward, with seven flat cars attached. One of the chairs was broken, and this caused the tender to climb the rails. This rarely happens when the engine is going forward, as the heavy pressure of it keeps the rails down, but the tender being forward and very light, jumped on top of the rails and from there to the ties.

            THE TRACK WAS ROUGH.

            Another reason was given for the accident is that the track was rough and the swaying of the water in the tank over-balanced the tender, which had nothing in front of it to support it on the track. Three engines were at the crossing coaling up when the accident occurred. As No. 206 pulled down the East Tennessee track, No. 14, Engineer Grubb, and No. 19, Engineer Simmons, were on the Brunswick and Western track headed for town. When the accident occurred Engineer Grubb saw it and, as engine 19 was the most convenient, sent it to learn the particulars. Grubb pulled out for town and notified the officials. Simmons reached the scene and his fireman, Ed Owens, hastened to the injured.

            AMES DIED PRAYING.

            Ames was still alive and was praying. He called Owens and requested him to tell his mother that he tried to die a Christian. He commenced praying after he spoke those words and died in a few minutes after with prayers on his lips.
            Douglass never uttered a word after he fell, having evidently died immediately.
            John Jacobs (colored) was on the last car when the accident occurred and, happening to see the tender leap the track, sprang from his seat. When he recovered from the fall he saw Yardmaster Robinett running through the woods. He caught him, but Robinett implored him to leave him and help the men under the engine.
            “MY POOR BOYS.”
            His first thought was for them, and he often asked for them, muttering as he did so:
            “My poor boys, my poor boys.”
            A sad feature of Robinett’s case is the fact that he was doing conductor duty for Conductor Smith, his room mate, who asked him to work for him to-day. His case to-night was pronounced hopeless. All the white men are single.
            No inquest was held, as it was not thought necessary.

[Robinette died later that same night from his injuries; his wife lived in DesMoines, Iowa where his remains were taken—ALH]

CAPT. ANDERSON, BRUNSWICK PILOT, DIED YESTERDAY

            Captain Albert O. Anderson, well known and popular pilot on the Brunswick bar and a resident of Brunswick all of his life, died at the City Hospital early Sunday morning. He had been in a critical condition for several days, hope having been abandoned for his recovery two days before he passed away.
            Capt. Anderson had been ill for the past several weeks, but not until two weeks ago did his condition become serious. He was removed to the hospital last week for an operation, and for a time it was thought it would prove successful, but his condition later became serious and although everything possible was done for him it was to no avail.
            Born in Brunswick November 5, 1876, Capt. Anderson had spent his entire life here, and he was well known among an unusually large number of friends. When a mere youth he served his apprenticeship on the Brunswick bar aboard local pilot boats, but it was many years later before he received his license, as the number of pilots was reduced shortly after he became eligible to receive his license. For a quarter of century [sic] he was engaged in the mercantile business, first being associated with his father, the late W.A.O. Anderson, and succeeding to the business after his father’s death. He received his license as a pilot about ten years ago.
            The deceased was a member of the Brunswick lodge of Elks, he had been a member of the Knights of Pythias for more than 25 years, and during his life he had been associated with other organizations in Brunswick. He was a good citizen, a true friend, and his passing will cause genuine sorrow among his large number of friends.
            Capt. Anderson is survived by three sisters, Mrs. J.R. Barfield, of Savannah; Miss Bessie Anderson, and Mrs. S.W. Baker, of this city.
            Funeral services were held from the residence, 1406 Union street, at 3:30 o’clock this afternoon, conducted by Rev. Osgood F. Cook, pastor of the First Methodist church. The First Methodist church choir sang “Jesus Savior, Pilot Me,” and “Crossing the Bar.”  Interment was in the family lot at Oak Grove cemetery, and the impressive Elks funeral service was carried out at the cemetery. The funeral was in charge of Mortician Edo Miller. The pallbearers were:  Capt. S.A. Brockington, Capt. Walter Brockington, Capt. Eugene Tabbott, all pilots; Otis Calhoun, Dr. Charles Gowen and J.E. Abbott.

DEATH OF MR. WM. H. ANDERSON’S CHILDREN

            It is our sad duty to chronicle, this week, the death of two children of Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Anderson, our neighbors.  Little Lee died Sunday morning last, at four o’clock, and just forty-eight hours later little Johnnie breathed his last.  The little ones had been ailing several days, but no fears of immediate danger were entertained.  Simple remedies failing to cure, a doctor was summoned, but too late to render aid, as the dread disease (diphtheria) had already carried the little sufferers beyond the point where recovery was possible.  Two little graves in Oak Grove cemetery are all that is left the bereaved parents.  May an all-wise God comfort them in their sad bereavement.

G.F. ANDERSON DEAD—After Lingering Illness Well Known Citizen Passed Away on Sunday

            Gustavus Friedlander Anderson, 31 years of age and one of the most prominent young men of the city, died at the home of his mother-in-law, Mrs. J.B. Southard, shortly after 7 o’clock Sunday morning. Mr. Anderson was a Brunswickian to the manor, having spent his entire life in this city. He was the second son of Mrs. W.A. Anderson and for thirteen years was connected with the Mutual Light & Water company, serving in various positions, having reached the very responsible one of cashier and auditor, which he held for several years prior to his illness.

            The deceased was married some seven years ago to Miss Annie Laurie Southard of this city, to that union one little son being born, which succumbed to typhoid fever about nine months ago. Grieved beyond expression at the sudden illness and death of his son, Mr. Anderson was himself stricken and very rapidly consumption developed. All that physicians could do was resorted to and last summer, accompanied by Mrs. Anderson, he was removed to Asheville in the hope that the climate of the “land of the sky” would be beneficial to him. All in vain, however, and eminent doctors pronounced his case a hopeless one, and he returned to the city several weeks ago literally to die among those whom he loved best.

            There was no better boy and later no better man than “GusAnderson, as he was familiarly known by his friends. True to every relationship in life, devoted to his business affairs, a good churchman, a devoted husband and father, with character, energy and ability, he combined those qualities that served to make his an ideal citizenship.

            To the grief-stricken widow, mother, sisters and brothers the sympathy of the community goes out in liberal fashion. The funeral took place from the First Methodist church yesterday afternoon, Rev. W.H. Budd officiating, and a large concourse of citizens attesting the popularity of the deceased, attended. The presence of beautiful floral offerings and the members of the local Lodge of Elks, of which Mr. Anderson was a member, were also impressive. The pallbearers were Messrs. Albert Fendig, J.P. Brooks, A.M. Way, C.M. Gowen, J.G. Harvey, and J.M. Armstrong.

DEATH OF MRS. ANDERSON—Mrs. Josephine Heard Anderson died at her home on First avenue at 9 o’clock Sunday night. She had been confined to her bed for many months, and bore her sufferings patiently. She was a member of the Baptist church and a pure Christian woman. Saturday night, while known to be dying, Mrs. Anderson rose up in her bed and began singing that beautiful hymn, “Jesus Lover of My Soul.” Several ladies were present around the death bed and joined in the song. Mrs. Anderson sang alto in a clear, distinct voice. The scene was indeed a touching one, and all of those who witnessed it shed tears.

            Mrs. Anderson was born in Harris county, Ga., October 10, 1832, and was the daughter of Wm. H. and Elizabeth Heard. She married the late Dr. L.P. Anderson in July, 1852, and moved to Columbus. She leaves a daughter and two orphan nephews, who were left in her charge during their infancy.

            The funeral took place yesterday afternoon, and was attended by a large concourse of friends. The services were conducted by Rev. W.F. Lloyd, pastor of St. Paul Methodist church, who attended her bedside frequently during her last illness.

MRS. ANDERSON PASSES TO REST—Estimable Woman passed Away Yesterday After a Short Illness.

            The city was saddened yesterday morning by the tidings of the death of Mrs. Lizzie Pearson Anderson, one of its best-known, best-beloved and most prominent women.
            Mrs. Anderson was stricken suddenly on New Year’s evening with general peritonitis, her attendant physicians immediately warning the family that there was little hope of her recovery, and for a week she has lingered at the point of death, suffering greatly, yet bearing her affliction with Christian patience, until the end yesterday morning, when death brought relief.
            Mrs. Anderson was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. A.G. Osgood and has lived in Brunswick all her life. She was married in this city to Mr. Wm. A.O. Anderson, a prominent merchant and from the union sprang an interesting family of children, who have become useful citizens.
            A delightful wife, mother and homemaker, Mrs. Anderson was never too busy nor too engrossed in her own and her family’s interests and cares, to take her part in all that meant the welfare of her city or its people, nor to help others in their need. With a happy suite and a tender word of encouraging sympathy for friend, neighbor or for the stranger at the door, she was as a cooling spring in the desert, and brought refreshment to many who were weak of heart and mind and soul. In her church work particularly were her inspiring energy, her unwearying [sic] zeal and her untiring labors most fruitful of results; and even when on her deathbed, suffering sharp pangs of physical pain, she sent for one of her co-laborers, and delivering up her books and papers, charged her to continue the work she had helped to establish.
             Every act of her life was in conformity to some text and she carried out all her work with the truly beautiful humility which characterized the earnest worker in the vineyard of the Lord.
            Mrs. Anderson was very interested in the cause of temperance, and wrote many effective articles on the subject for local and other papers. In this, as in everything else, she served faithfully, but with modesty and humility, asking no recognition of her efforts, but striving for the elevation of mankind.
            So, after a long life of consecrated devotion to duty, she has gone home; gone while her days were still useful and pleasant, and before old age had laid its withering hand upon her, to put an end to her great deeds. She has completed and laid aside the garment of life, and put on the mantle of immortality. With the term of human existence that God allotted her she did her best, and made very moment county. And now she has simply gone back; for, after all

“Our birth is but a sleep and a forgetting;
The soul that rises with us, our life’s star,
Hath had elsewhere its setting, and cometh from afar;
Not in entire forgetfulness, nor yet in utter nakedness;
But trailing clouds of glory do we come,
From God, who is our home.”

            Mrs. Anderson is survived by five children, Messrs. A.O. and Wm. C. Anderson; Mrs. J.C. Garfield of Savannah; Miss Bessie Anderson and Mrs. S.W. Baker of this city; and several grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. Cora Rowe.
             To the bereaved family The News tenders a sincere personal sympathy.
            The funeral will occur this afternoon at 3 o’clock from the First Methodist church, Rev. C.A. Jackson officiating. The interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery. The following gentlemen will act as pallbearers:  Dr. D.D. Atkinson, E.L. Stephens, J.J. Lott, B.F. Mann, Dr. H.M. Branham and W.H. Wood.

FUNERAL OF MRS. ANDERSON—Large Concourse of People and Beautiful Flowers Mark Sad Affair.

            The funeral of Mrs. Elizabeth Pearson Anderson, whose very sad death has cast a gloom over a very wide circle of friends, occurred at 3 o’clock yesterday afternoon, Rev. A.C. Jackson and Rev. W.H. Chapman officiating. A vast concourse of people filled to overflowing the spacious church and in the great congregation there came friends and acquaintances from every section of the city to attest their love and admiration for the [illegible] good woman, who after a life full of years of usefulness has been called to its last and eternal reward. The blossom-scented house of God never looked more beautiful than it did yesterday afternoon and to those, or to a large percentage of those attending the service, it appeared as if the very presence of the dead [illegible] her permeated the chancel rail, the altar and the flower bedecked pulpit.
           
A special choir consisting of Miss Fe Symons, Miss Jane Dart and Messrs. R.E. Sherman and Clinton Knight rendered favorite hymns of the deceased, adding a sweet and solemn feature to an occasion already full of pathos and gentle sympathy. The floral offerings were simply beautiful, fairly covering from view the casket and speaking to an eloquent silence of the love and esteem to which Mrs. Anderson was held to friends and acquaintances.
            The pallbearers were Dr. E.D. Atkinson, Dr. H.M. Branham, L.J. Lott, E.L. Stephens, W.H. Ward, Jr., and B.F. Mann, all members of the board of stewards of the First Methodist church, of which the deceased was a devoted member and which she loved as it is given few mortals to love their house of worship. The interment occurred in Oak Grove cemetery and by the side of the good husband who preceded her six years ago, all that was mortal of this [illegible] Brunswickan was tenderly laid to rest.
            The sympathy of the people of this city goes out in unmeasured fashion to the members of the church in this hour of their sadness.

A VERY SAD DEATH—Unusual Features Mark the Passing Away of Little Osgood Anderson

            The death of little Osgood Fendig Anderson, four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. G.F. Anderson, at their home on Dartmouth street at 10 o’clock Sunday evening, is surrounded with a tinge of sorrow unusual as it is pitiable. Little Osgood was stricken ten days ago and the attending physician, Dr. R.E.L. Burford, pronounced it a case of scarlet fever. A consultation of physicians was later called and the diagnosis of the case by Dr. Burford was confirmed. Then followed the usual quarantine regulations, which are harsh, but necessary steps in the interest of the health of the community. The little sufferer fought bravely against the malady with which he was afflicted, and everything possible was done for his relief, but steadily he lost ground, the little life was gradually ebbing away and Sunday evening, it flickered out. The seriousness of the malady and the stern mandates of the quarantine law, made it impossible for visitors to call at the Anderson home, hence these grief-stricken parents, with only the aid of a trained nurse, were forced to fight this awful battle alone. For the same reasons, the authorities were compeled [sic] to order a private funeral and yesterday afternoon a carriage hearing a little white casket, the two devoted and broken-hearted parents, the nurse and the undertaker, wended its way to Oak Grove cemetery. Here Rev. W.H. Budd, of the First Methodist church, joined the party and officiated. In this hour of darkest gloom, made doubly so by these gruesome conditions, Mr. and Mrs. Anderson have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends, which was beautifully expressed in the handsome lot of floral remembrances sent to the house during the day.
            The news joins with others in tendering to these sorely afflicted parents its tenderest sympathy.

WM. ANDERSON PASSES TO REST—ONE OF BRUNSWICK’S PIONEER CITIZENS DIED EARLY YESTERDAY MORNING—THE FUNERAL OCCURS TODAY—Mr. Anderson Was One of the Best Known Citizens in Brunswick. Spent His Entire Life in This City

            William A.O. Anderson, one of Brunswick’s pioneer business men passed away at his residence on Union street at 5 o’clock yesterday morning after an illness covering a period of over twelve months.
            The end was not unexpected, in fact the members of the family and close friends well knew that it was nigh at hand and it came as tranquilly as Whittier might have had in mind when he wrote his Thanotopsis[?].
            Mr. Anderson suffered a nervous collapse some thirteen months ago, and at that time abandoned the cares of business and sought his home in the hope that such a life would restore his accustomed good health. However, he failed gradually but none the less certainly and finally was visited by paralysis, which superinduced by the debilities of an advanced age, hastened to the coming of the Reaper. The passing of this well known Brunswickian, who was truly the manor born, removes one of those historical landmarks that served to connect the Brunswick of today, with that of seventy-five years ago. Born on Fancy Bluff, Nov. 4, 1832, he came to this city in his early manhood, he became associated with the firm of G. Friedlander, at that time the largest mercantile establishment in the city. A few years later he became a member of the firm and finally succeeded to its ownership conducting the business, which is located at the corner of Gloucester and Oglethorpe streets with marked ability and success.
            On September 15, 1869, Mr. Anderson was wedded to Miss Elizabeth P. Osgood and to that union six children were born, all of whom together with Mrs. Anderson survive him. The children are Mrs. J.R. Barfield of Savannah, Miss Bessie Anderson, Mrs. S.W. Baker and Messrs. A.O. G.F. and W.C. Anderson of this city.
            Mr. Anderson was a good man in the very broadest construction of the word, he was broad-minded and liberal in h is views, of a gentle and charitable disposition, devoted to his family, a good friend and a man who never failed to confer a favor and a smile. He has well rounded out the seventy-six years of a splendid life and the love and devotion of his family, the esteem of his friends and the good opinion of his fellow man are noble heritages for any man to carry with him to the silence of the tomb.
            The funeral will occur from the First Methodists church at 10 o’clock this morning, Rev. Robert Kerr officiating, the following gentlemen acting as pall-bearers, Messrs. Duncan Wright, C.M. Cowan, J.E. Moore, E.C. Tupper, J.B. Wright and G.A. Ralston.
            To the grief-stricken members of the family the News extends its deepest condolence and blends its sympathy with that of thousands of Brunswickians who knew the deceased and loved him well.

FUNERAL OF MR. ANDERSON—Many Friends Paid Last Tribute to Popular Brunswickian

            The funeral of Mr. W.A.O. Anderson occurred yesterday morning from the Methodist church and it was one of the largest seen in Brunswick in some time. An unusually large number of friends of this old and popular citizen followed the remains to their last resting place in Oak Grove cemetery to pay a last respect.
            The services were conducted by Rev. Robert Kerr. At the church a choir composed of Miss Tallulah Fleming, Mrs. W.P. Greene, and Messrs. R.E. and George Sherman rendered very sweetly the hymns, “Rock of Ages,” “I Would Not Live Always” and “No Shadows Yonder.”
            The floral offerings were beautiful, the handsome casket being covered. Many beautiful wreaths were sent the family by admiring friend of this pioneer and truly good citizen.

            William C. Anderson, local architect and building contractor who had resided in Brunswick all of his life, died last night in a Savannah hospital. Mr. Anderson had been ill for only a short time having entered the Savannah hospital a few days ago.
            He was born in Brunswick September 10, 1862, and had spent his entire life in this city, where he was known among a large circle of friends. He was the son of the late William H. and Alethia I. Anderson, pioneer Brunswick residents.

WOMAN HELD IN STAB DEATH OF HUSBAND

            Patricia Ann Armstrong, 23, black female, 2206 Peachtree St., was charged Thursday evening with the murder of her husband. She reportedly told city police that the stabbing of Lee James Armstrong at about 2:30 p.m. was an accident.
            Although the long, pointed butcher knife his wife allegedly wielded had penetrated his heart, the 26-year-old Brunswick man got in his car and headed toward the hospital. Losing control, his car left the roadway and came to rest behind 3329 Jekyll Ave., police said.
            Armstrong did not bleed profusely from the knife wound police said, and when found in his stalled car was not unconscious and was thought to be an accident victim. He was not pronounced dead until about 5 p.m., officers said.
            The knife reportedly penetrated the upper chest and the heart was cut, but police said there were only small drops of blood in the kitchen of the Armstrong’s house where the stabbing allegedly occurred.
            The Armstrongs reportedly have one small child.
            Investigation of the incident was continued by Sgt. W.E. Douglas and Det. R.M. Tawney.

102-YEAR-OLD LOVES LIFE, INSPIRES OTHERS
By CAROLYN O’QUINN; Community Life Writer

            It was her birthday and she was 102 years old. Friends and neighbors had streamed in and out of Heritage Inn on St. Simons Island, all day long Sunday to visit “Miss LucilleArmstrong.
            Now she sat quietly in her chair amid her memories awaiting the next visitor who would kiss her light brown cheek and tell her how good she looked.
            Although she spends some time in a wheelchair because of arthritis in her right knee, her skin is as soft as a baby’s and her smile is as sweet as ever.
            Her may visitors came to wish her a happy birthday and to feel the positive vibrations Mrs. Armstrong radiates. Alert and attentive with a droll sense of humor, she does pretty well with names except when the younger generation shows up looking exactly like the first.
            “There’s always a smile in there,” said a young woman in her early 20’s, indication Mrs. Armstrong’s room. “You want to come to see her because she’s so sweet.”
            She had come by not only to wish Mrs. Armstrong many happy returns of the day, but also to congratulate her on being honored by her church at the celebration of its history.
            She has been a member for 83 years and is the oldest member of the 129-year-old First African Baptist, Brunswick’s oldest black church. Church members presented her with an engraved plaque in appreciation for her years of service to the church in a special ceremony Sunday.
            ‘She’s sweet. It feels good to be around her,” said Jackie Traeye, who has known Mrs. Armstrong all her life. “She has always been a positive influence on many people and especially to the children of the church.
            “I remember when I was a child, Mrs. Armstrong would listen to our Sunday School recitations. She would nod her head as we recited and if we faltered, that head would just nod more emphatically, as if she could pull us through it.
            “She was always so kind to us and she has been an inspiration to a great many people. It’s people like her that are the reason our church has been so strong and lasted so long.”
            Mrs. Armstrong was born Jan. 5, 1890, on Amherst Street in Brunswick. An only child, her family moved to Washington D.C., where her father, Joseph Ruffin, worked in the U.S. Treasury Department. Her mother died when she was 8-years-old.
            “From then on my father just took over and he always took care of me,” she said. “He was a good man, they don’t make them like that anymore.”
            Her great-aunt, who lived in Brunswick in a big two-story house across the street from Hall’s Funeral Home on Gloucester Street, asked that she be allowed to come and live with her.
            As a young girl, she often traveled on the train from Washington to Brunswick and remembers the trips as a gentler time when train travel was less hectic and more luxurious with lots of porters. “It was smooth riding. I loved to ride the train,” she said.
            Her school teacher in Brunswick was Miss Ida Jones, who also played the organ in the church. In Washington, she attended school through the eighth grade.
            She was in her teens in Frist African’s church choir when the choir sailed to Jekyll Island on the Emmeline or Hessie to sing for the millionaires. She remembers being introduced to the Rockefellers, Carnegies and Vanderbilts at the Jekyll Island Club. “They made us so welcome and we enjoyed the trip so much,” she said.
            She and her late husband, Henry Armstrong, reared their three children here. A homemaker, she said she never had to work out of her home very much. Once she was a sitter for five years with an elderly person in Washington.
            And she did a lot of church work. “I used to bake, you know,” an understatement for the hundreds of cakes she’s made over the years for church socials and fund-raisers.
            Her son, Everett, calls her twice a week from his home in New York, and she often hears from her daughter, Lottie, who lives in St. Mary’s nursing home in California. Her eldest child, Henry Armstrong, Jr. of Jekyll Island, who is 81 and a deacon in the church, visits her every week. She has five grandchildren and said she knows “most everybody.”
            Mrs. Armstrong said she has never used alcohol or tobacco but she does have one weakness. “I love to eat sweets,” she said with a grin. “You see that box of candy there? Dr. Inman’s wife brings me a box of candy every time she goes on a trip.” The W.O. Inmans were neighbors of hers when she lived on Jekyll Island with her son.
            Why does she think she’s lived so long? “Just the good Lord’s good to me, that’s all. All of them say ‘I’ll never live to be that old.’ I tell them, that—you don’t know. Because I never thought I’d live to be this age, either.”
            She said she is enjoying her life at Heritage and that her health is good, “so far as I know,” she quipped.

Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 9 June 1883; pg. 7 col. 1

Farewell, dour friend! we meet no more!
Last night God’s angel, hovering o’er
Your weary sufferings, pitying brought
The blessed rest you longing sought.
As softly flowed the murmuring tide,
Your gentle spirit seemed to glide,
Freed from the hindering grasp of pain,
True tender hearts will miss your face,
Your quiet presence in your place,
Your patient faith that God knew best.
And as I may not hope to stand
Beside your grave, with loving hand
I leave this tribute.  May your rest
Be calm and sweet upon His breast—
A compensation for the hours
Of trying anguish, when the powers
Of soul and body both were tried!
Oh, glad for you, at last to hid
Under the shadow of His wing!
At last to listen, as angels sing
Those songs of praise, so sweet and clean
Those rapturous strains you longed to hear!
Farewell, once more, beloved friend—
‘Tis hard to say it at the end
Of such long friendship as was ours.
To-day will many lovely flowers
By loving hands be entwined for you;
But no on with a love more true
Than mine will fragrant tribute lay,
Although I must be far away.

            Miss Susan Armstrong, one of the oldest inhabitants of the city, died last week at a ripe old age—seventy-five I am told. She had been confined to her room for many years, and was hardly conscious of the changes multiplying around her, as new people and new faces came and went, but was attended in her last moments by her lifetime friends of the old-time circles, a fine people who are fast disappearing from our days.

ARROWSMITH, Charles William

[Submitted by volunteer researcher, Mike]

            Fort Valley. Aug 22—Fort Valley and community were shocked Friday at noon to hear of the sudden death of C.W. Arrowsmith, a prominent and longtime resident of this place. Mr. Arrowsmith sold his home on College street and his brick store in which he ran a bakery for a number of years this week and intended to move in a few days in another residence he owned here. He came originally from England and it was his intention to visit, with his wife, his old home in the mother country in a short while. His wife and several children survive.
            Mr. Arrowsmith had driven in his car from his store in the downtown section to Ganoville, a suburb, and stopped to take in a passer-by when death overtook him. He was dead in a minute after being stricken and friends carried his body to his home on College street.
            The funeral services and interment will take place Saturday and will be conducted by the Rev. W.F. Quillian, of the Methodist church.

From The Jesup Sentinel—MRS. J.A. ASPINWALL DEAD

            Mrs. J.A. Aspinwall departed this life Dec. 30, 1920.
            Mrs. Aspinwall was born in Appling County, Ga., about fifty-nine years ago, although her exact age had been lost. She was married to Mr. John Aspinwall in the year 1881, and to this union were born thirteen children, twelve of whom survive her and mourn her loss. She united with Bethel Primitive Baptist Church at Screven, Ga., some years ago and had lived a true Christian life since that time.
            She had been confined to her bed nearly two months and she realized that her stay on earth was short, and said she was willing and ready to go, so we feel sure that our loss is her eternal gain, for we believe that she is only asleep in Jesus. But while we need her so much, we would not call her back to this world of suffering, sorrow and affliction, and will only try to meet her beyond this vale of tears.
            May each one of you try to meet your dear mother and to follow the foot prints of Jesus.
            She leaves a host of friends besides her relatives to mourn her loss.
                        "Her children mourn a loving mother.
                             And her life companion dear;
                        May they comfort one another,
                       
     It is for them we shed the tear.
                        "She has loved him long and well
                             Tho' so hard to have her leave us,
                        Her joy is more than we can tell,"
                                    --A Friend.

MRS. S.C. ATKINSON DEAD—She Passed Away in Atlanta Tuesday Night.

            The sad news of the death of Mrs. Samuel C. Atkinson was received in this city yesterday, having occurred in Atlanta Thursday night.
            Mrs. Atkinson had been dangerously ill for several weeks, but was considered much better earlier in the week.
            A sudden change for the worse ensued, however, and on Thursday night surrounded by her sorrowing relatives she breathed her last. While not entirely unexpected, her death was a great shock and a sad blow to those who loved her, and who had hoped until the last that her life would be spared.
            Mrs. Atkinson leaves in her immediate family her husband, Judge S.C. Atkinson, and one child, Miss Nellie Atkinson. They have the sympathy of friends in their sorrow.
            The remains will be brought here this morning on the Southern, accompanied by Judge and Mrs. Spencer R. Atkinson, Judge S.C. Atkinson and Miss Nellie Atkinson.
            The funeral will take place from the family residence, on Union street, at 3 o’clock this afternoon, Rev. Wyllys Rede of St. Mark’s church conducting the services. The pallbearers will be Messrs. H.F. Dunwody, J.W. Bennett, R.D. Meader, P.W. Fleming, Howard Waff and L.T. McKinnon.
            The remains will be interred in Oak Grove cemetery.
            The members of the family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends.

A TRIBUTE

            In the death of Mrs. Lila Screven Atkinson Brunswick has sustained the loss of one of its most admirable and lovable woman [sic], one whose brilliant mind and attainments, dignity and beauty of character, and charm and sweetness of manner and disposition made her beloved by all who knew her. A woman of broad charity, striking individuality and warm and generous friendship, she embodied all the graces of typical southern womanhood. The rare flower of a high civilization—gentle and womanly, gracious and warmhearted—she was the epitome of all that was good and lovable.
           In social circles her bright winning personality will be sadly missed. In charitable affairs and church work her energy and cheerful, unselfish labors were ever to be relied upon, and here too, her death leaves a mournful vacancy. In her family most of all, where she wore the true woman’s rightful, that of perfect wifehood and motherhood, she will be most sadly missed. The aching void, where her bright presence once made the household joy and happiness, and where despite her failing health, she strove to be all in all to her loved ones, will never be filled, but the memory of her perfections will live on to bless those who mourn for her.

DIED--In this city, on the morning of the 22d inst. George Butler Aust, Esq. formerly of London, Eng., in the 38th year of his age.
            "He is now beyond the reach of friendship, or of hatred; nor can his ashes be affected by censure, or by praise.  May he rest in peace; and if charity and good nature open not the benevolent lip, let the finger of silence rest on the tongue of malevolence and detraction.

ILLNESS FATAL TO WILLIAM AUSTIN, 11-YEAR-OLD BOY

            William Maxwell (Billie) Austin, popular 11-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Joe Austin, who has been critically ill at the City Hospital for the past several days, died early last night.
            This popular youth was taken ill late Wednesday night at the home of his parents on Union street. He was carried to the hospital Friday, where he underwent an appendix operation, and his condition at once became worse, complications developing Sunday night, and in an effort to save the life of the little fellow a second operation was performed yesterday, but it was to no avail, and in the afternoon it was realized he had little or no chance to recover.
            Billie, as he was affectionately known by his many little friends, was one of the most popular students in Preparatory High school. He was in the sixth grade and was one of the brightest as well as most conscientious scholars, and announcements of his untimely death today cast a shadow of gloom over the entire school, as well as the city generally.
            Besides his parents the youth is survived by one sister, Virginia, 14, four aunts, Mrs. Helen Cheatham, of Atlanta; Miss Jennie Franklin, Mrs. May Anderson and Miss Joe Franklin, of this city.
            Funeral services will be held from the First Methodist church Wednesday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock, conducted by the pastor, the Rev. L.A. Harrell. Interment will be in Oak Grove cemetery. Mortician Edo Miller is in charge of arrangements.
            The following boys, selected from the junior board of stewards of the First Methodist church of which Billie was a member, will serve as pallbearers for their little playmate: Active, Burgay Staley, Edward Manoe, Jr., William Sheppard, Burkhart Henderson; honorary, Theodore Rogers, Joseph Whittle, Jarvis Wood and Harley Glover.

AYMAR, George W.
Advertiser & Appeal; Saturday 23 October 1880; pg. 3 col. 3

            We chronicle this week the death of Mr. George W. Aymar, an old and respected citizen of this city.  For many years he has filled the position of city sexton of Oak Grove Cemetery, officiating as such at the burial of many of our people.  This sad rite had to be done in his case by others.  In his death the city has lost a good citizen, and his family an affectionate husband and father.
