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: On December 31st, at his residence, south of Lodi, in this county Ben. Hoskinson, aged 76. He leaves a son in Stafford county, a son and daughter in Washington, and a daughter in this county, the wife of Frank Sheddy.
pg 3, col 1
Married: Miss Cora McClearey and Prof. T.F. Sanborn will be married in this city next Tuesday, January 12th, at 8 o'clock a.m. There is no young lady in the county who has more friends and admirers than has Miss Cora, and she deserves them. She is one of the prettiest, most lovable girls in our midst, with all those graces of mind and heart which make a woman that perfect work of God. Prof. Sanborn is no stranger in our city. For the past two seasons he has been located here, as government chemist at the sugar mill. He has made many friends while here and all esteem him as a pleasant, affable, educated gentleman. They will reside at Washington, D.C. and we trust he may be sent back here next season as chemist. We dislike to see our best girls taken from our county, but we know of no gentleman who is more worthy to carry off such a prize. The Index wishes for them a full realization of their fondest hopes. [See also Jan 20, 1892.]

Married: Harry Stone and Miss Orpha English were married at Sun City by Rev. Owens on the 24th[of December]. We extend our congratulations and best wishes.

Married: Tonk Mills has fooled the people at last. He has reported so often that he was married, or was just about to be married, that everybody thought he was a confirmed bachelor and when his marriage really occurred, his own mother would not believe the report. Miss Mary Havelin is the happy bride and we extend to the couple our best wishes. [See May 31, 1893 for birth of daughter and also Jan 16, 1895 for death of Mary H. Mills.]

Married: At the residence of the bride's parents, in this city, on Thursday evening, January 14th, 1892, at 8 o'clock, by Elder J.E. Nicholson, Prof. T.F. Sanborn of Washington, D.C. and Miss Cora B. McClearey, of this city. A small but select company of about twenty-five of the intimate friends of the family were invited to attend this interesting event, and promptly at the hour named they were all present. At a few minutes after eight, Miss Blanche Kercheval took her position at the piano and to the strains of the ³Wedding March,² the bridal party came into the parlor where Elder Nicholson, in a short, pretty and appropriate ceremony united the couple for life's journey, closing the service by slipping a handsome diamond ring on the finger of the bride, the gift of the groom. Hearty and sincere congratulations followed as the bride was well known and greatly esteemed by every one present, and the groom was an old friend of nearly all. Congratulations being over and the crowd becoming seated, from mysterious corners several small tables were produced and in a few moments, before anyone had a chance to surmise what was to be done, the crowd was invited to seats at the tables, in groups of four. Then came refreshments, starting out with fresh oysters on ice and strong coffee; next came salads, turkey and such excellent food. Then came a series of lighter and more delicate viands, including half a dozen kinds of most excellent cake, each one of which was an exhibition of culinary skill; and last of all came ice cream and the bride's cake. The supper was delightful, each article being perfect, and the manner in which it was served added relish to it. Each guest was profuse in complimenting the refreshments. After supper, some genii of mischief proposed the game of ³stage coach,² and as but few knew anything about the game, they all agreed. To see such dignified men as Eld. Nicholson, Col. Eldred, Mr. Hinman, L.F. Pearson, W.T. Rouse and others and a number of staid and dignified ladies all jumping up and whirling around at the mention of such words as ³whip,² ³tar-bucket,² ³sorrel horse,² and a variety of other words, would provoke laughter from any set of spectators. A game called the ³musical chairs² was also played, causing much merriment. A number of handsome presents were received, among which we noted the following: [partial list provided] solid silver tea service consisting of a large waiter, spoon-holder, cream pitcher, sugar bowl and tea pot, very handsome, presented by Col. and Mrs. Eldred, Mr. and Mrs. C.I. Hinman, Geo. Horney and Miss Blanche Kercheval; six solid silver teaspoons, Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Case; pair of beautiful rose vases, Miss Helen Cameron; [a second silver tea service]; oxidized silver and celluloid toilet set consisting of comb, brush, toothbrush and shoe buttoner, all in a handsome satin-lined case, Mr. and Mrs. E. Youmans; set of shell china cups and saucers, Mrs. W.G. Musgrove. Mr. and Mrs. Sanborn took rooms at the residence of H.H. Case and they are yet in the city, though they will probably start today for Washington, D.C., their future home. The best wishes of all who know them will follow them wherever they may go.

The groom is a young man of temperate and economical habits and is known as one of the prosperous young farmers of Valley township. The bride is a young lady of refinement, kind of disposition, and who, by her persevering energy, has placed herself among the successful school teachers of the county. They go immediately to their home near Mumford, Kansas. And on Apr 13 @ pg 2, col 3: Married: At the residence of Wm. Wheat, April 3rd, 1892, Eld. W.A. Cain officiating, Mr. U.G. Rogers and Miss Willa McCluney, both of Valley township. After the ceremony a bountiful repast was partaken of at Mr. Wheat's, where several friends had gathered to witness the ceremony. The happy couple, in the company of Mr. Daniel Broombaugh (the groom's cousin) and Miss Nellie Rogers, hastened to Mumford, where they were met by several acquaintances. They stayed all night at the groom's father's where, on the following day, another grand dinner was partaken of. Quite a large number of neighbors met to pay due respect to this worthy couple. The bride is a nice young lady of high standing, and at present is teaching the Eldred school. She was tastefully attired in a cinnamon brown silk dress, which well befit her slender form. The groom wore a stylish suit and looked very nice. He is one of our best and most enterprising young men, with a spotless character, and a young man that many girls would think a desirable catch. But this is leap year and old bachelors must go. They will reside at V.C. Sleeper's place for a while, but as each one is the owner of a farm, we fear we shall lose them all too soon. Their many friends congratulate them warmly and wish them Godspeed in all their undertakings. [Valley news][Note: The bride's name is transcribed as printed.]

pg 3, col 3
Died: At his residence, at Hazelton, April 19th, 1892, Loren G. Peck, aged 63 years and 4 days. From the Hazelton Express, we clip the following biographical sketch: ³The subject of the above notice was born in Machias, N.Y., April 15, 1829. The cause of his death was a chronic dropsical disease, from which he had suffered almost continually for several years, but having been a man of indomitable will and energy, he had only been out of active business for about a year. Mr. Peck came to Kansas and settled at Anthony in 1882. In August, 1883, he came to the present site of Hazelton, and immediately commenced preparations to lay out the town, and from that date until his death, his interest in the upbuilding of Hazelton never waned. The parks, and every street in town are marks of his enterprise that may ever be pointed to with pride by the citizens of Hazelton. Mr. Peck was ever foremost in suggesting and carrying out plans for the benefit of the town in general, and his kind and charitable nature won the admiration of even his most bitter business competitors. The funeral services were conducted in the M.E. church, Wednesday afternoon, by Rev. B.F. Baker and the remains were buried in Rose Hill cemetery in the presence of a large concourse of citizens of Hazelton and vicinity. He leaves a wife and four sons, one brother, one sister and an aged mother. Two of the sons reside in Ohio, his sister in New York and the others here in Hazelton. The community in general condole with the bereaved relatives in their sorrow. Yet, while condolence does not heal the wounded hearts, it binds more firmly the sympathy of humanity for one another, and thus the burden of grief is lightened.²

Married: At the residence of C.G. Taliaferro, in this city, last Saturday, by Probate Judge Stevens, Mr. Winn Arnett, of this county, and Miss Alice Long, of Grundy county, Missouri. The bride arrived here on the afternoon train and the marriage took place within an hour.

Died: In this city, yesterday morning, May 10th, 1892, at 7:30 o'clock, of consumption, James N.Deal, aged 43 years and 8 days. Mr. Deal has been in poor health for the past four years and went to Colorado and California for his health, but came back unimproved. For the past sixteen months he has been confined to his bed. Everything that could be done was done for him, but there has been little hope of doing more than to smooth his path to the grave. He was a member of the G.A.R., Odd Fellows and A.O.U.W. He will be buried at 2 o'clock tomorrow evening from the Presbyterian church, the Odd Fellows conducting the exercises. Rev. J.M. Archer will preach the funeral sermon. [See also May 18, pg 3 col 5.]

Died: James N. Deal, whose death we mentioned last week, was buried last Thursday afternoon. The services were conducted at the Presbyterian church by Rev. J.M. Archer, under the direction of the Odd Fellows, and participated in by the A.O.U.W. and the G.A.R., of which three orders Mr. Deal was a member. At two o'clock, the procession was formed on Main street and with muffled drum marched to the family residence. The body was placed in the hearse and the procession slowly marched to the Presbyterian church, where hundreds of friends of the family had already assembled. Before the exercises began, the church was crowded and many persons went away because they could not find seats, while many others stood in the doorway and in the aisles. The pulpit was draped with evergreens and flowers, emblems of the three lodges being displayed on the wall. The music was rendered by Mrs. Rouse, Mrs. O'Brian, Jas. McNeal and Jos. Jayne. It was well rendered and very impressive. Mr. Archer took as his text a passage from Job: ³If a man die, shall he live again?² The sermon was eloquent, instructive, pathetic, a lesson to the living, a tribute to the dead. At the cemetery, the services of the societies were held, after which the body was consigned to its last resting place, and the large crowd dispersed, each one feeling that a friend had been buried, for the deceased was the friend of everybody. He was well known and highly respected by all. He leaves a wife, two sons and one daughter. His life was insured for $2,000 in the United Workmen. [A.O.U.W. resolutions follow.]

Died: Great excitement was caused here yesterday afternoon by the sudden death of Mr. W.M.Deigh, of Elm Mills. Mr. Deigh had been in town all day doing business, apparently as well as ever. But while sitting in the district clerk's office, he suddenly dropped over in his chair insensible. Medical help was speedily summoned, but was not needed. Within three minutes every vestige of life had disappeared. The effect of his sudden death upon his son who was with him was most touching. Mr. Deigh was about 65 years of age, and one of the most substantial citizens of Barber county. All who knew him spoke his praises and the family have with them the sorrow and sympathy of many friends.

Died: In Sun City township, May 28, 1892, John Moran, aged 69 years, member of Peter Cooper Alliance No. 2029. On the way home from Lake City he was drowned in Mulberry Creek. Bro. Moran was a hard-working peaceable citizen, a blacksmith by trade. Everyone who knew Uncle John admired his honor and integrity. He had no relatives in this state. His political opinions harmonized with those of that illustrious statesman, Thomas Jefferson, who said, ³With all these blessings, who more is wanted to make us a happy and prosperous people? Still one thing more is needed - a wise and frugal government which shall restrain men from injuring one another; shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sense of good government, and this is necessary to close the circle of our felicities.² He was a strong adherent of the People's Party. The funeral services were conducted Sunday afternoon by Rev. C.W. Owens at the Sun City school house, after which the remains were interred in Sun City cemetery under the rites of the F.A.&I.U. Signed: Mrs. N.G. Rowley.

The weddings were quiet and unassuming. The ceremony was performed in each case in the presence of only a few of the many friends of the contracting parties. There were no costly wedding presents such as national banks, blocks of railroad stock, hundred thousand dollar checks, sets of diamonds, not even a five hundred dollar barrel of Scotch whisky, and not extended and expensive wedding tour to Europe. These four young people will, however, receive the congratulations and well wishes of a host of admiring and appreciative friends including the Index.

Died: Mr. Daniel Carmichael, one of our most honored citizens, after lingering among us for some time, stricken with disease, passed over the dark river of death. His demise occurred about six o'clock, Monday evening, July 18, 1892. Mr. Carmichael is a native of New York, having been born near Johnstown in that state. In early life he engaged in mercantile business, most of the time with his brother in New York City. He was married in 1872 to his present wife, then Miss HelenMcPherson, and moved to Douglass county, Kansas, where he engaged in farming and stockraising. In 1879, he came to Barber county where he continued in the same business up to the time of his death. He leaves a wife, one daughter, Carrie, a young lady of 19, and one son, Donald, aged 15. It is scarcely necessary for us to speak his encomiums. He was well known by all the old settlers of the county, and all with one accord speak his praises as a man, a neighbor and a citizen. We extend the sympathy of the entire community to the bereaved family for the community feel they have met with a loss. The funeral services were held yesterday at 5 o'clock at the Presbyterian church, conducted by Rev. Hahn. A large concourse of citizens were in attendance.

Married: Hazelton Express - ³Mr. Wesley L. Gamble, of Hazelton, and Miss Maggie M. King, whose parents live 4 miles southeast of town, were married on Sunday, July 31st, at Kingfisher, Ok., by Rev. J. Homer Parker, a Congregational minister, at his residence. Mr. and Mrs. Gamble arrived home on Monday and are now domiciled at home in the handsome Tennant residence in the north part of town. The wedding was something of a surprise to nearly all Hazeltonites, as Mr. G. had been hustling around with his usual energy attending to business matters, and Miss King had been visiting relatives near Kingfisher for several weeks past. But Wesley suddenly disappeared, the bonds of affection were sealed and they returned before anyone had scarcely asked about his absence. W.L. Gamble's name has been coupled with the interests of Hazelton for several years past, and is yet, and through prosperity and adversity, he has remained firm in the belief that there is wealth here in the near future for all who do their duty. He is a lawyer of considerable ability, was justice of the peace for Hazelton township for two years, and was actively engaged in the real estate business at the same time. Having leased his farm, he is now buying wheat for an eastern firm. Mrs. Gamble is well known as a lady of fine intellect, having been principal of the public schools of Moline, Ks., for two terms, besides having taught in other schools, and by her pleasant disposition and charming womanly ways she easily wins lasting friends wherever she becomes acquainted. Mr. and Mrs. Gamble have numerous friends who will join the Express in wishing them the utmost prosperity and happiness through life.²

Well, of course, we wish them well, but there is something provokingly exasperating in the surreptitious way in which these ceremonies are consummated and executed. The editorial ³we² feels there is something in the air. We know something is about to happen, and grope about in the dark in vain to discover the causes of the disturbance of the elements until it has transpired and the suffering public, all unprepared, is electrified by the suddenness of the shock. Then ³we² sit down bewildered by others'cunning and our own stupidity. ³We² have stood these impositions until patience ceases to be a virtue. ³We² must and will get even. In fact, ³we² would have long since retaliated were it not for the insuperable barrier, that it takes two, and sometimes three or four, to make a bargain.

Died: Silas R. Jordan, deceased, was born in Brownsville, Ohio, August 13th, 1859. The same year he removed with his parents to Illinois. In 1880, he moved to Kansas, near Canema, in Barber County where he resided until his death on September the 21st, 1892. He united with the Presbyterian church at Carthage, Illinois, in youth and in 1885 he with his wife united with a newly organized Free Methodist class near Canema, of which he has lived a consistent member. He was united in marriage February 19th, 1885 to Miss Lauretta Wright. He leaves a wife and three small children, four sisters and three brothers and a host of relatives and friends who mourn his loss, but have the comforting knowledge that he has gone to live with the redeemed. Brother Jordan was a Christian man. He gave good evidence that he was ready to go when the Master called for him. Saturday night when he thought he was going to cross the river, he kissed the children goodby, then bid the rest of us farewell and said he was going to live with Jesus. He was a faithful sabbath school worker, superintending two schools the last two years. He will be missed in the Sunday school, in the prayer circle and as a citizen, but our loss is his eternal gain. Let us remember the family in this lonely hour at the bar of mercy.

We can well believe him in this case, for a long acquaintance with both parties leaves their numerous friends with no room for any but favorable criticism.
