REEL #M805/KSHS Microfilm Collection

The Barber County Index was a weekly newspaper, published in Medicine Lodge beginning at the end of 1880. At the time this reel begins, Wednesday, January 2, 1889, E.P. Caruthers was publisher; in February of that year, W.G. Musgrove joined with Mr. Caruthers and in August 1890, Mr. Caruthers sold his interest to H. Walker of Elm Mills township. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel continues through December 30, 1891. The information has been copied as accurately as possible, but errors may still occur. Minor printing errors have been corrected, but otherwise the information is presented as it originally appeared. Please consult the individual reels to verify an item. I do not have any further information about these individuals or families. Contributed by Ellen Knowles Bisson thebissons@worldnet.att.net.

Died: (From Sun City Union) - "Died, Saturday, Jan. 5th, 1889, Mrs. Jas. York, after six days of extreme suffering caused by erysipelis. Mrs. York was one of those women that every person could go to with assurance for assistance in times of trouble. She was always a kind and affectionate mother and a loving daughter and wife. Every ready to do her share to make society what it ought to be, she was truly a lady. The heavy blow that has thus fallen upon her mother, husband and children cannot be realized by the world. The Union, along with many others, extend to the grief-stricken family their heartfelt sympathy at their great loss."

His bride was his Ohio sweetheart, and we feel certain that she will have no reason to regret having cast her fortunes in the growing west. After the ceremony, the couple visited friends at Anthony and came here Monday.

Married: Wednesday night, Mr. W.I. Crawford and Miss A.M. Roberts were married at the residence of the bride's parents in Hazelton. Miss Roberts was one of the teachers in our school and has given universal satisfaction. She was one of the leading ladies in society and will be greatly missed by the young people. Mr. Crawford is a member of the firm of Cunningham Bros. & Co., real estate and loan agents, is an enterprising and successful business man, and we predict for the happy couple much of the happiness and comforts of this life, and take this opportunity, with their many friends, to offer our best wishes for a long and prosperous wedded life. After the wedding Wednesday night, the boys made a raid on the premises and succeeded in creating considerable disturbance, and did some damage to the house, and wound up the fun by offering to lick the party that was sent to get them to leave. It looks a little as though Hazelton was in need of some missionary work as well as foreign lands. [Hazelton news] And also @ pg 3, col 3: Mr. W.I. Crawford, well known in the city, was married at Hazelton on the 20th to Miss Mary Roberts, daughter of Rev. J.E. Roberts. The bride has many friends in this county, where she has lived four years.

pg 3, col 5
Died: The saddest event that has occurred in t his city for a long time was the sudden and unexpected death, on Sunday afternoon, March 24th, of Mrs. Emma E. Lindley, wife of our townsman, T.L. Lindley. She had been complaining slightly for a week, but did not consider herself sick. Her three children were taken with measles last week and she was able, up to Saturday night late, to give them a devoted mother's care. Then she was suddenly prostrated, and continued to grow worse until death relieved her sufferings. Her condition was not realized until noon, when Dr. Gillette called in Dr. Gould for consultation. The physicians say the cause of her death was a malignant type of measles. Mrs. Lindley was born at Lawrence, Kansas, twenty-six years ago. She was a daughter of Capt. and Mrs. N.B. Blanton, of Hazelton township. She was married to T.L. Lindley ten years ago, in this county, and of th is union were born five children, three yet surviving, the youngest being but a babe. Mrs. Lindley was a sister of Mrs. D.T. Flynn and Mrs. Frank Streeter, of Kiowa. Mrs. Lindley was a most lovable woman, one who claimed everybody as a friend, who was ever found with words of sympathy for the distressed, and whose hands never tired in doing good for all around her. As a wife, she was thoughtful, considerate and frugal; as a mother, she was a subject for a poet's song; as a friend and neighbor, she was warm-hearted and altogether unselfish. Her genial presence at home, in the neighborhood circle, in the halls of pleasure, or in the house of mourning or trouble, was as a soft ray of sunshine from a May day sun, pleasant to experience and regretted when it departs. The funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon at the Presbyterian church, by the pastor, Rev. North, assisted by Rev. Cain, of the Baptist church, and Rev. Sanderson, of the M.E. church. The remains were interred at Highland Cemetery.

Died: At her late residence on the Jerry Simpson place, April 3rd, 1889, after a short illness, Mrs. Melinda Evans, wife of Joseph Evans, in her 42nd year. Mrs. Evans was born in Ohio, February 19, 1846, and embraced Christianity by baptism when only 13 years of age and up to the hour of her death, she lived a true and devoted Christian, a fond mother, a dutiful wife and a respected member of society. Her disease was of short duration but from the first attack she believed she would die, and just before the spirit left the body, when asked by her mother if she did not want to live, she in a strong, unfaltering voice said: "No, all she wanted was wings to fly up to heaven," and soon all that was immortal of Mrs. Evans had made its flight to meet that God whom she had served so long and so faithfully. She leaves a husband and five children, besides numerous relations and friends, to mourn her loss. But they do not mourn as those without hope. She was buried at Sharon cemetery Thursday evening last, a large number of friends and relations being present, administering the last earthly rites. Funeral services conducted by Elder Nation, of Medicine Lodge. [Note: Elder David Nation was the husband of Carrie Nation.]

Died: J.S. Anglin's wife and child died Saturday and were buried Sunday at 3 o'clock. It is sad to see one so young taken off in the very prime of life and we can say to the bereaved husband that he has the sympathies of the community in this, his time of sorrow. And May 1st, @ pg 3, col 7: Rosa Anglin, who departed this life April 13, 1889, was the daughter of J.H. and Annie Brown. She was born June 15th , 1873, in Macon county, Mo., and moved with her parents to Barber county in February, 1884. She was married to J.S. Anglin July 1, 1888, and in December they moved to the eastern part of the state, but soon becoming dissatisfied with their new home, they returned to Hazelton, where they expected to spend many happy days, but the Allwise Being has seen fit, in His great wisdom, to enter the peaceful and happy family and take Rosa to himself. White it is hard to part with those we love, we can but bow in submission to the will of Him who doeth all things well. [Both from Hazelton news]

Died: After a most painful sickness of seven days' duration, the disease being inflammation of the bowels, Riley Robinson, of Kiowa, died at the Grand Hotel, in this city, yesterday afternoon, May 14, 1889. He was here in attendance at District Court, he being an attorney in several important cases therein pending. On the 7th, he was taken sick, but his case was not at first considered serious, though he suffered excruciating pain from the first. He had good nursing and medical attention, and his wife was not notified until Thursday when she came up from Kiowa. His brother-in-law, Dr. Cloud, was telegraphed to and he came up from Guthrie, Oklahoma, on Saturday. His sister, Mrs. Cloud, and his father also came up from Kiowa, and yesterday, his cousin, Humphrey Walker, of Fayette, Mo., also arrived from Guthrie. So, at the time of his death, he was not among strangers, but surrounded by loving relations and his dearest friends. Riley Robinson was born at Franklin, Howard county, Mo., in January, 1853. His father was R.H. Robinson, one of the oldest and most prominent citizens of that section of Missouri, connected with the old families, the Sebrees, the Walkers, etc. Deceased was educated at Fayette, Mo., and read law with Judge Broaddus, at Chillicothe, Mo. He entered the practice at Higbee, Bent county, Colorado, where he, with his brother, were also interested in stock raising. He moved to Kiowa four years ago and since then has been the leading lawyer of that flourishing little city. He was recognized by everyone who knew him as an absolutely honest and honorable man, kind to everyone and a worthy citizen. Christmas last he was married in this county to Miss Annie Maddox, a highly cultured and gifted lady who is known and loved for the many excellencies of her character. She is a native of central Missouri, of Randolph county, we believe, though she was raised and educated in Howard county. Her loss is irreparable and here, where she is known, she has the sympathy of a large circle of friends. Besides a proud and affectionate father, deceased leaves to mourn his untimely death a devoted brother and three loving sisters: Gerard Robinson, of Higbee, Colorado; Mrs. A.S. Cloud, of Kiowa, Kansas; Mrs. Wm. Smith, of Howard county, Mo.; and Mrs. Napoleon Davis, of Kansas City, Mo. [Article includes information about arrangements made by the lawyers of the Barber County bar association.] The following pall-bearers were selected: Attorneys Loren Edwards, W.S. Denton, G.M. Martin, H.M. Ingraham, G.B. Wiley and Wm. McKean, Sheriff Geo. W. Stevens and Clerk Frank Holmes. Col. Snoddy was selected as marshal. The funeral train will leave here this morning at 10:45, arriving at Kiowa at 1 p.m. Short services will be held at the Congregational church, Rev. Halliday, pastor. The resolutions of the Bar association will be read and a short address will be delivered by Judge Edwards and then the body will be laid away in its last earthly resting place.

Married: The marriage of Mr. William Palmer and Miss Della Moore, at the M.E. church in this city, and the reception that followed at the home of the groom, was witnessed by a large concourse of well-wishing friends. The ceremony was performed by the pastor, Rev. R. Sanderson, in a most impressive manner. The bridal party entered the church to the melodious strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, executed by Miss Blanche Kercheval, the organ being covered and banked with flowers. Dr. and Mrs. Moore led the procession, then the pretty twin sisters of the bride, Gail and Gladys, her sister and brother Miss Daisy and L.W., the attendants, Mr. and Mrs. A.M. Houchin, and then the little bridesmaids - her Sunday school class: Misses Myrtie Cook, Gertie Sanderson, Stella Lebrecht, Mabel Stone, Gertie Hinman, Ruby Macy, Nellie Southworth and Zella Deal. These little misses were each provided with bouquets and these they gracefully spread in the path of the bridal couple so that they were married while standing upon a bank of flowers. The bride was attired in a handsome white silk Empire gown, walking length, in deep and graceful folds, the bodice richly trimmed and the [neckline] cut V-shaped, filled in with illusion, the effect being beautifully set off with an extra heavy and wide silk sash, ornaments, pearls and natural flowers. The ceremony concluded, and in reverse order, the bridal party left the church, and, crossing the street at once took possession of the well-appointed residence of the groom which had been prepared for the reception. When congratulations were over, the rooms were filled with lunch tables, and a repast, both delicious and appropriate, was served to the guests. The fruits, berries, creams, cakes and coffee were in abundance and their excellence was commented upon and pronounced the work of artists. The four lower rooms of the house were absolutely full of the well-wishers of the young couple and the yard accommodated many more. It was an outpouring of the best people in Medicine Lodge, all of whom wished the happy couple a pleasant journey through life. There were many tokens of friendship and esteem exhibited, a large table being loaded down with wedding gifts. Following is a [partial] list: handsome dining table, John Higgins and Ambrose Allen and wives; mahogany wardrobe and center table and lace bedroom and toilet set, Dr. and Mrs. Moore; cut glass parlor lamp and shade from the bride's Sunday school class; elegant ornamented chandelier from Wash and Arthur Shaw, Geo. Hibbard, W.E. Cook, Lute Eby and H.D. Records; handsome silver and cut glass salad set, Mr. and Mrs. J.W. McNeal, Capt. and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. and Mrs. Finney, Mr. and Mrs. Hubbard; silver and blue cut glass berry stand, W.W. and Mrs. Cook; silver knives and forks, W.W. and Mrs. Standiford and T.L. and Mrs. O'Bryan; handsome willow rocker, A.W. and Mrs. Johnston; syrup pitcher, Eli and Mrs. Benedict.; silver and granite coffee urn, Mr. and Mrs. J.S. Branham, Hutchinson, Kans; fancy willow and ornamental work table, S.P. and Mrs. Coan; table linen and napkins, Judge and Mrs. Ellis, Mr. and Mrs. Axline and Miss Cartan; colored china dessert plates, Capt. and Mrs. Skeen; set of dining chairs, J.N. Titus; handsome silver and amber celery stand, J.P. and Mrs. Hall, J.S. and Mrs. Runyan; Chinese silk and antique lace picture throne, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Moore, Wilcox, Neb. Mr. Palmer, the groom, is a prosperous young man, who by assiduous attention to business has merited the confidence and respect of this community. He is the junior member of the real estate firm of Cook & Palmer. He was born and reared in England, but located here four years ago. The bride is the oldest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. W.H. Moore, of this city. She is a young lady of real worth, of practical training, and is endowed with all those graces and accomplishments that are jewels in the character of a woman. Here, where she has lived for seven years, her list of friends is only circumscribed by her entire acquaintance. Mr. and Mrs. Palmer are snugly fixed in their home on North Walnut street, conscious of the best wishes of their many friends.

The bride is well known and highly esteemed by all our citizens, but we have known her from her infancy, and never knew a brighter child, or a more lovable woman. She is gifted beyond ordinary women in all the graces requisite to make home a paradise on earth. We wish for the couple the full realization of their fondest hopes and predict for them a successful, bright and happy future, for their energy and good common sense will surely win the prize.

He moved to this county with his parents in 1880 or 1881, and lived here until 1886, when he entered the railway postal service here for quite awhile and afterwards was connected with the Adams express company. He was a young man of exemplary habits, a kind and dutiful son, and a loving brother. He was the ideal of his parents, and their grief at his untimely death is all that they can bear. The parents were at the bedside of their boy when he died. He returned from Florida two weeks ago, where he had gone in pursuit of health, which he did not find. He died at the home of a kind lady with whom he had boarded in Wyandotte. The remains arrived here yesterday, and were taken to the Presbyterian church where services were held at 3 o'clock, Rev. North preaching an appropriate sermon. The body was buried in Highland cemetery, a large number of friends being present.
