REEL #M806/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 6, 1892, W.G. Musgrove was Editor and Business Manager. After being with the Index for six years, Mr. Musgrove sold his interest to Leon E. Beals in May 1892. In August 1893, C.C. Hudson took over as Editor. By April of 1894,Painter and Herr had assumed control of the Index. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel continues through April 24, 1895. 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: The event of the most sorrowful interest to the people of this part of the county for many days is the sickness and death of Frederick Lichlyter. He had a common sore boil on the left side of his face, but nothing was thought of it until Wednesday, the 20th[of Dec], when he began to complain that the boil smarted and pained him badly. [Following is a detailed explanation of the medical problems.] On Friday night, Dr. Cushenberry was sent for who continued to attend to him and did all he could to check the disease, but it was a very malignant case of erysipelas from the first and it was not probable that human skill could have averted the result. On Monday, he was delirious but I am told that on Tuesday he had a lucid interval and talked of his state. He believed that Christ was not only a Savior, but his Savior and was willing to go. He wished he had been baptized. After this lucid interval on Tuesday, he relapsed into unconsciousness and continued to grow rapidly worse until the end came at four o'clock on Thursday morning, Dec. 28th, 1893. I am told that his death appeared to be easy and with very little struggle, resembling falling asleep. His funeral was preached at the Baptist tabernacle on Thursday afternoon by Elder Cain of Medicine Lodge. There was an immense gathering of his old friends and neighbors, taxing the seating capacity of the tabernacle, to attend the funeral rites of the beloved departed. The discourse was full of hope and consolation. A large concourse of people followed his remains to the cemetery south of town where his body was consigned in hope of a better resurrection. Frederick Lichlyter was born in Dubois county, Indiana, in the year 1860. At the time of his death he was aged thirty-three years, one month and twenty-eight days. He came to Kansas about twelve years ago and has lived in this state ever since. He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his sudden demise, which has cast a gloom over the entire community. [Sharon news] And also at col 3: The death of Fred. Lichlyter, recorded by our Sharon correspondent, is greatly deplored by all his many friends. He was one of Barber's best citizens.

Died: At the residence of J.W. Potes, in this city, at 8 o'clock a.m., Saturday, January 6, 1894, Charles Elliott, aged 76 years, 7 months and 29 days. Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. A.A. Parker assisted by Revs. Cain and Kessell. The deceased was Mrs. Potes'father, and has been suffering for several weeks. Charles Elliott was born in Pennsylvania in 1817, residing there until five years of age. At this time, his father died and his mother with 7 small children moved to Stark county, Ohio, residing there nearly 40 years. At the age of 21, the deceased was married to Miss Fannie Charlton. He professed faith in Christ at the early age of 18 and united with the Methodist church, where he remained a consistent member. In 1854, he moved to Bowling Green, Ohio and lived there until 1884 when he came to Kansas and located near Wellington. In 1887, he came to Kiowa in this county, where he has lived a model Christian life, uniting by letter with the M.E. church at that place. His life was filled with kindly deeds and the family and friends were always helped and encouraged by his patient example. During his last illness of over four months, he cheerfully bore his suffering and with unwavering faith in his Savior, he cross the river of death. Signed: CHAS. PEARSON. And also @ Jan 24, 1894, pg 3, col 6, a memorial poem signed by G.G. Kessell, dated Jan 16, 1894.

And on Jan 17, pg 3, col 3: The funeral of Mrs. Felix Landis, held from the family residence last Thursday afternoon, was one of the largest in the history of the county. Many attended from Medicine Lodge and Kiowa, and the intervening country furnished a greater share of its population. Services were conducted by Rev. W.A. Cain after which the long procession was formed to the Newkirk cemetery. Mrs. Landis had many warm friends, and of the esteem in which they are held, the family must rest assured.

Our most sincere felicitations.

Died: Hancock County (Ill.) Journal - Mr. John D. Stevens died at his home in this city Wednesday morning about 2 o'clock. He was taken suddenly ill on Saturday afternoon and when a physician called, it was found that he could live but a short time. He had had an attack of rheumatism 3 or 4 years ago and it is thought that his present trouble is partly a sequel of that, together with other difficulties. On Saturday evening, he had a very violent hemorrhage from the bowels which occurred 3 or 4 times, the result was to reduce his strength that in the crippled condition of the heart, he was unable to rally and sank to rest as related. He was conscious to the last and fully realized from the start that his condition was hopeless. John D. Stevens was the oldest child of Joseph and Elmira Stevens nee Dee. He first saw the light at Carrolton, Ill., February 8th, 1826. His education was gained chiefly by his association with men in the affairs of life as his school advantages were only those of all the early settlers, limited to elementary branches. His sterling integrity and good common sense supplied the place of book learning so well that in every position to which he was called by his countrymen, he was at all time fully competent to discharge its duties. He lost his father when he was twenty years of age, when he began his life's business course which led him to Jackson county, Iowa, in 1846, to New Orleans with a load of horses in 1847, back to Illinois the next spring, to California, overland, in the spring of 1850 where he mined and rustled for the next five years, then to Texas and after five or six months stay, home again via the Gulf to New Orleans. This was in December, 1855. The next year was spent about Ft. Riley, Kansas. With the exception of a six months trip to Pikes Peak in 1860, he has ever since made Hancock county his home. On his 21stbirthday, he was united in marriage with Miss Julia A. Towler, of Indiana, who with the three daughters that were born to them survive. He was elected to various offices of responsibility and trust, amongst which was sheriff of Hancock county in 1870 and 1872, to the General Assembly and postmaster of Carthage from 1889. Mr. Stevens was a consistent democrat and being a man of very decided opinions, was radical in everything. He was as loyal to his convictions as any man could well be and while he was a_________of his convictions. Scrupulously honest and just in all his dealings, warm and steadfast in his friendship and open and manly in his enmities. No man of his hot impulsive temper was ever anything else than what John D. Stevens was, an honest man, a generous friend, an ardent enemy. He had the respect of all who knew him, friend and enemy alike. The family are secure in the sympathy of the whole community.

Died: Ethel Mryl Bell died at the home of her parents near Coates, January 6th, aged 2 years and 11 months. Her death was the result of a fall while climbing on some machinery in the yard December 17th. She complained but little for some days and no particular anxiety was felt until New Year's day when a physician was called. A day or so later she began to show signs of cerebral pressure and a council was held. Dr. Franklin, of Pratt, was telegraphed for, but the exudation was at the base of the brain and but little hopes were entertained. Every effort was used to relieve the suffering but the dread messenger came and quietly bore her spirit away, leaving two brothers, one six years of age and the other a baby and fond parents to mourn her loss. She was buried in Coates cemetery Sabbath day, the funeral being conducted from the family residence by Rev. Dean of the M.E. church. The parents have the sympathy of the community in their loss. Little Ethel was a pleasant and innocent child, loved by everyone and her remembrance is as a shower of fragrant blessings. May He who gives and takes away enable us to say: ³Thy will be done.² [Followed by Card of Thanks signed by L.B. and May Bell.]

Died: ³Death Relieves² - Last Friday at 12 o'clock M., Death came to the relief of one who had been an intense sufferer for the past five months, Mrs., wife of Franklin Ladou. The deceased was aged 58 years and 6 days and leaves a husband and 10 grown children to mourn her loss, the former being her senior by eight years. Mrs. Ladou was born in Canada but was of French parentage. Her maiden name was Miss Retchell Robisho [Note: Possibly a phonetic spelling or ³Robichaud² ], and was married April 6, 1852, in the state of Illinois, to Frank Ladou. They resided in that state a number of years, after which they moved farther west, and settled in Pratt county for several years and then moved to this city where they have been active and progressive citizens for five years past. Their children are as follows: John, Levi, Virginie, Joseph F., Jacob, Lady Jane, James, Lily, Peter and Retchell, the last being named after the departed. During her sickness, Mrs. Ladou suffered acute pain but bore it patiently and good-naturedly. She was a consistent and devoted member of the Presbyterian church, having been active in the Divine teachings for the last 30 years. The cause of her death was dropsy and liver complaint. Her friends and physicians labored long and earnestly to restore her to health but without good results. Her husband, who is now 66 years of age, gave her all the care it was possible for any one to give, but no earthly power could restore vitality. The funeral services took place from the family residence, Rev. Engle officiating, and the remains quietly laid to rest in the cemetery where she sleeps a quiet sleep and where no pain and sorrow enters.

Married: ³In Matrimony's Bonds² - At 9:30 this morning, Austin T. McKay and Miss Dell Simpson were united in the bonds of holy matrimony. The ceremony took place at the residence of the bride's parents, in the eastern part of the city, Rev. Engle of the M.E. church officiating. The groom is a brother of Judge McKay, and is court stenographer of this district. The bride is the accomplished daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.D. Simpson, and one of the prima dona of southern Kansas. Mr. McKay is to be envied for the prize achieved. Only a few relatives and friends witnessed the ceremony, after which congratulations and best wishes were showered upon the contracting parties. Mac is now a new man with all the glory of the springtime of life before him. He is indeed fortunate in acquiring such a proficient help-mate. The happy couple left on this morning's train for Attica, where they will remain a short time with the groom's parents, after which they will go to Anthony, their future home. The Index joins with the host of friends of the high contracting parties in extending congratulations and hopes for success in the future.

Died: The decease of Elder William McMurtry of the Baptist denomination which occurred on Monday, the 30thday of July at a few minutes past 3 o'clock in the afternoon, although not entirely unexpected, was a very sad event. He has been sick and suffering for nearly a year but most of that time he was able to walk around and ride out. He spent most of last winter in Missouri hoping that a change would benefit his health. Elder McMurtry was a native of Missouri and at the time of his death was about seventy years of age. He has been an active preacher of the Baptist church for about forty years. The writer has been acquainted with Elder McMurtry since he first settled at his late residence about 2 miles from Sharon. Elder McMurtry was largely instrumental in gathering together and organizing the congregation known as the Enon Baptist church, now in such a flourishing condition and yielding such a vast influence for good. He will be long remembered by the people of Barber. His figure was so familiar as he drove around in his one horse buckboard to visit, counsel and encourage his brethren. He believed that God had infallibly called him to preach the gospel of His Son and he was indefatigable in his labors. Not possessing the advantage of even a good common school education, Elder McMurtry made up in faith, zeal and courage what he lacked in education and gathered many souls into Christ. His style of preaching was natural and characterized by great earnestness. While he did not claim perfection in his daily life, he placed his hope of eternal life entirely in the blood of Christ. He believed that he was himself an object of God's daily care. His life was full of such incidents as this: One night he could not sleep through thinking of the unsatisfactory condition of the Enon church, his mind was impressed he should get up and read the thirty-seventh Psalm and when he arose he opened his Bible and read the psalm and was greatly encouraged and believed the church would overcome its present discouragement. A few days before he took to his bed for the last time, he visited Uncle Billy Brown and family and as he was about to take his departure, he wept telling Mr. Brown that he had been admonished that his dissolution was very near and that he never expected to visit him again in this life. On Saturday before he died, he bade each member of his family goodbye telling them that he was going and that he wanted to say goodbye before he lost his speech. Soon after he became speechless and remained so until a short time before he breathed his last on Monday night as we took a long last look at his countenance then still in death, it seemed to us that we could detect an expression of triumph and peace. He leaves a widow. His children are all grown. He also leaves two step-children nearly grown. His widow and children have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement. On Tuesday, his remains were conveyed to Rice county where they were interred by the side of his first wife. Oh! Tell my companion and children most dear to weep not for William though gone. The same hand that led me through scenes dark and drear, has kindly assisted me home. [Sharon news]

When they returned a few minutes later, they saw him lying in the water and immediate reported the matter at the house.

She had just returned from an extended visit to Wichita with friends the Tuesday before the Friday of her death, and it was not expected that she would breathe her last until a few hours before her death. Her father, who was at Wichita, was immediately telegraphed for, and arrived here on Saturday's train. The funeral services took place Sunday forenoon at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Macy, and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery. Rev. Engle officiating at the family residence and Elder Hopwood at the grave. The grief-stricken mother is almost frantic with sorrow at the untimely death of her daughter. Robert, who is in South Dakota, could not arrive in the city in time to attend the funeral and hence the sad intelligence was sent to him by letter. The deceased is 15 years, 9 months and 3 days of age. She leaves a host of friends who deeply deplore and mourn her loss. Miss Ruby was admired by all who had her acquaintance and was one with whom an acquaintance was everlasting friendship. The sympathy of the community is with the friends and relatives of the deceased.

Married: ³Orange Blossoms² - The wedding at which we made an erroneous guess a few weeks ago, took place at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Currie. Mr. Benjamin Glasier and Miss Jean B. Currie were united in Holy Matrimony, Rev. R.B. Engle officiating. Miss Nellie Currie and C.L. Sparks personated bridesmaid and best man. The wedding was a quiet event, only a few friends and relatives being in attendance, composed of the following persons: Mr. and Mrs. R.B. Engle and daughter, Mr. and Miss Lane, mother and sister of the groom, Mr. and Mrs. August Schmidt, E.H. Schmidt, C.L. Sparks, C.S. Heskett, W.H. Sparks, jr., F.P. McAllister, Mrs. W.H. Sparks and Miss Florence Sparks. After the ceremony, an elegant feast was spread to which it is needless to say the guests did strict justice. The groom is our present deputy county treasurer, formerly of Wichita but now a resident of this county. He is a man of excellent habits and character, cordial, and never fails to make friends wherever he goes. The bride is the oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.B. Currie, has been brought up in this county and is admired and befriended by all who know her. The Index joins with the many friends of the happy couple in extending congratulations and best wishes for the future. Many valuable presents were received by Mr. and Mrs. Glasier, the following being a list: Bedroom set, rocking chair, lamp and Turkish towels, parents of the bride; lace curtains, mother of the groom; bedspread, Ida Lane; tea set, Nellie Currie; Japanese tea pot, Mrs. Eldridge, Wichita; damask towels, Mrs. W.H.

Mr. and Mrs. Glasier moved Monday into the property recently vacated by Wm. Carroll, where they will be at home to their numerous friends. And @ pg 3, col 3: Mr. and Mrs. C.B.

Died: ³A Sad Death² - Mrs. B.F. Teal died Sunday at 10 o'clock a.m. of a disease known to medical science as septicemia. Mrs. Teal had been ailing for the past few weeks, but was not thought to be serious until several days before her death. All that kind hands and medical skill could do for a suffering patient was done for her, but to no avail. The funeral services took place at the family residence Monday afternoon and the remains laid to rest in the cemetery. Rev. Engle officiating. The deceased was born in DeWitt county, Illinois, and moved to this county in 1884 and was married to Mr. B.F. Teal in 1884, who, with two children, 2 and 4 years old respectively, survive her. Mrs. Teal was well known by everyone in and around this city and was followed to the grave by a large concourse of mournful friends. To know her was to be her friend and her presence will be greatly missed by her neighbors and acquaintances. In this his hour of sorrow and affliction, no one but Mr. Teal can calculate the immensity of his loss and he certainly deserves the sympathy he is receiving. The death is a doubly sad one because of the small children it leaves motherless. It is another grievous repetition of the axiomatic truth, that without a mother, home is nothing. But such is life and humanity, but the hospitality of the people will be a powerful factor in dispelling the clouds of adversity that now overshadow Mr. Teal and his little ones.

Died: At his home in Valley township on the 14th, Sebastian Eckert, at the age of 66 years, 9 months and 19 days. The summons came to him as a thief in the night. He had been about his business as usual throughout the day, had eaten a hearty supper and retired early, but complaining of a pain in his side and back. Later on, he complained he could not rest and got up and his wife rubbed him with liniment but without giving any apparent relief. Shortly after midnight, he got up and went into the kitchen to get his pipe and take a smoke, but was unable to reach it on the shelf where it lay when suddenly calling to his wife by name three times, he sank into her arms and almost immediately expired. But though suddenly called away, he was ready to meet his God, having been prepared for the summons whenever it should come. The deceased was a native of Prussia and previous to his advent in this county he lived in Illinois and Missouri. He was baptized in infancy, confirmed his baptismal vows in his youth, uniting with the Lutheran church of which he was a faithful member. He was a good citizen, kind neighbor, indulgent father and loving husband. He leaves behind him (so far as we know) only his widow who in her lonesomeness is almost inconsolable. He was followed to the grave by a large concourse of neighbors and friends on the 16th. Rev. Hayes of Nashville officiating.

Died: Freddie Larkin, aged 16 years, three months and two days, died at his father's home in Deerhead Township, Sunday at 10 A.M., the 16th. Fred was a boy that was universally loved by all who knew him. His mild habits, pleasant disposition and politeness endeared hi to everyone acquainted with him. He was one of those boys whose life is made up of deeds of kindness. No one was more attached to the family than he was. We all know (the baby) or the youngest is more of a pet among the family. To the youngest, the parents look as the staff of their declining years. In the midst of life there is death. To look at him we beheld a picture of health, if in selecting one to fill an early grave, the most critical earthly judge might have selected one whose cheeks wee pallid or whose steps were decrepit. Freddie was the youngest son of John and Mary Larkin, born Sept. 14, 1878, in Ellsworth Co. The deceased leaves to mourn his loss his aged father, mother, six brothers, three sisters and many neighbors and friends. The relatives are Mrs. Jackson, Mrs. McCormick, Mrs. Stewart, Jack, Pat, Bill, Geo., Henry and Charley. The family were all present but Mrs. Jackson and Mrs. McCormick, all of which with the assistance of Dr. Gould, administered to the wants of the deceased with untiring energy. All was done to preserve the life that was precious as our own. The funeral services were conducted by Father Corrivault after which the body was interred in Lake City cemetery to await the Resurrection Morn. Signed: A Friend.
