REEL #M870/KSHS Microfilm Collection

Medicine Lodge Cresset: Jul-Dec 1898

The Medicine Lodge Cresset (meaning "bright light") was a weekly newspaper, published in Medicine Lodge beginning early in 1879. L.M. Axline was publisher at the time this particular reel begins; Otis Lorton took over publication in February 1899. Local news included coverage from the surrounding communities, as well as Medicine Lodge. This reel begins Friday, January 7, 1898 and continues through Friday, February 22, 1901. 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: Mrs. Jane Arterburn, wife of A. Arterburn, of Mingona township, died on Saturday last, July 23rd, from the bite of a rattlesnake received Friday while weeding onions. Usual remedies were applied and the woman came to town where Dr. Burney prescribed for her, but the poison was too virulent to overcome. The snake was killed. It was a large one with 10 rattles. The remains of Mrs. Arterburn were laid to rest in the little graveyard on Mrs. L. Doles' farm, west of town, last Sunday. We understand funeral services will be held next Sunday. Mrs. Arterburn was 58 years old and respected by her neighbors. We were unable to learn much of her life. She leaves five children by a former husband named Perky - four girls and one boy. The son, I.M. Perky, arrived on Monday from Colorado. [See below and also Barber County Index transcription @ Jul 27, 1898.] And also @ Sep 2, 1898: Letter of Thanks signed by Mrs. Arterburn's children, Vesta Arterburn and Irving Perkey.

Died: At her home 10 miles north of town, on Tuesday morning, August 9th, at 2 o'clock, Mrs. Maggie Gibson, aged 28 years, 8 months and 18 days. She was the wife of Wm. Gibson, to whom she had been married about a year and a half, and the daughter of Wm. Doles, of Oklahoma. She was born November 22th, 1869, and came with her parents to this county when but a young girl, and has practically grown up her. On December 25, 1888, she was married to Jerry Seiler, a brakeman on the Santa Fe railroad, who was fatally injured by train about three months after. One child was born, who is left with his stepfather to mourn the loss of his mother. Mrs. Gibson was well known and highly respected both in this city and the surrounding country and a host of friends will sympathize with the husband and little boy in their sad bereavement. The remains were quietly laid to rest in Highland cemetery Tuesday afternoon. Memorial services will be held later. [See also Barber County Index transcription of Aug 10, 1898.]

Married: The following account of this wedding was received too late for publication in last week's issue: At the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. M.H. Clements, on Mulberry Creek in Turkey Creek township, Mr. Albert G. Hendricks and Miss Lena B. Clements were united in marriage Sunday, Jul 31st, 1898. The light rain of the night before had made the air cool and fresh and the day was all that could be desired. The young couple came out under the spreading elms which overhang the banks of the creek, and in the presence of about two hundred people, Rev. C.W. Owens, of Belvidere, performed the ceremony which made them husband and wife. They are both deaf mutes, and Mrs. Cornelia Cline, a sister of the bride, very gracefully interpreted the ceremony to them in the sign language. The bride is a very bright, intelligent young woman and has always been a great favorite among her friends, while the groom is a smart, active young man, and looks perfectly competent to care for himself and his wife. They were both educated at the Olathe Institute for the deaf and dumb. They received a large number of useful and valuable gifts, and the well wishes of the entire community go with them in their new life. They expect to start on Thursday of this week for their home in the strip, which, we understand is near Medford.

Died: Miss Jane Arterburn, who died July 28, the notice of whose death appeared in these columns last week, had lived in Barber county for the last eighteen years, and was well beloved by all who knew her. She was fifty-nine years of age. She was married twice, and leaves behind her a husband and five children - four girls and one boy. She united with the Baptist church at the age of fourteen and remained a member of that body until 1896 under the preaching of Elder Ingle she cast in her fellowship with the Church of Christ. Sunday, July 29, her friends gathered at the house to pay their last respects to the departed one, and manifest their sympathy to the bereaved. Then the remains were taken to the Doles' graveyard for burial. The funeral discourse will be preached by Elder Ingle next Sunday, Aug. 7 at the Doles' school house. And further: Aug 12, 1898, pg 3, col 4 - I.M. Perkey returned to his home in Colorado on Monday last, after attending the funeral services of his mother, Mrs. Jane Arterburn. Two of Mrs. Arterburn's daughters, Mrs. Chas. Arterburn, of Colorado City, Colo., and Mrs. Sarah Lucas, of Marion, Kan., came on hearing of their mother's illness, but arrived after her death, and only remained a short time. Also: Sep 2, 1898 @ pg 3, col 2: Letter of Thanks signed by Vest Arterburn and Irving Perkey.

Marriage License: On Friday last, Aug. 12th, a marriage license was issued to John F. Lunsford and Effie Wysong, both of Elm Mills township. We presume the young people are wedded by the this time and extend congratulations.

pg 3, col 3

Marriage License: On Saturday, Aug. 13th, 1898, a marriage license was issued to Seth Bonney, aged 50 years, and Sarah L. Wagner, aged 52 years. Just a trifle over six months ago, Mrs. Wagner secured a divorce from Peter H. Wagner, after some 30 years of marriage life. Another peculiarity of the union is that the groom is the divorced husband of the bride's oldest daughter. It is fair to presume that this marriage will so rearrange and reconstruct the Wagner family that "all may live happily ever after." [Note: Name is spelled Boney and Bonney in these two reels; see also Index transcription @ Aug 17, 1898.]

Died: William Henry Ritchie died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Adolphus Bucknum, in Nippawalla township, on Wednesday, August 17, 1898, at the age of 84 years 11 months and 15 days. Deceased was born September 2, 1813, in Kentucky. He left there at the age of 3 years and removed to Missouri, where he lived until last March, when he came to Kansas to live with his daughters, Mrs. Adolphus Bucknum and Mrs. R.H. Clay. He was married December 24, 1850, to Miss G.H. Redmon. Six children were born to them - four girls and two boys. All are living. Two daughters, aforementioned, reside in this county, two daughters in St. Joe, Mo., one son at Latham, Mo., and one in Oklahoma. On August 4th, deceased was taken sick with dysentery and lived until August 17 at 5 p.m. The body was taken to Tipton, Mo., for burial. R.H. Clay accompanied the corpse. He was an old soldier, having served in the Mexican war, and was respected by all who knew him. The many friends extend their sympathy to the sorrowing relatives.

Died: After an illness of about two weeks, Mr. John Beebe died at his home in Beaver county, Ok., on Monday, August 29th. The direct cause of his death was fatty degeneration of the heart, although he had been suffering more or less for several years from complicated ailments. John Beebe was one of the first settlers of Barber county, and had many friends in this vicinity who will regret to hear of his death. He came here in 1870 and lived on the place just east of town, now owned by Bruce Dobbs, until about twelve years ago, when he left here and settled in No-Man's-Land, which is now Beaver county, Ok. The following sketch of his life is taken from the Beaver Herald: "Mr. John Beebe was a native of Vermont. He was born on December 7th, 1828. At an early age he removed with his parents to Illinois. When he was only seven years of age his mother died. When he was twelve years old he was left an orphan child, his father having died at that period. He was therefore left alone to make his way in the world. He was the youngest of a family of twelve children, all of whom had gone before him, except one brother, Samuel, who still survives him, and who resides at Momence, Illinois, and a sister, Mrs. Julia Messenger, living at Grand Park, Illinois. He received his education in the public schools of New Lenox, Illinois. In 1858, he was married to Miss Elizabeth Dudley, of Kankakee, Illinois, a woman whose companionship proved a source of much happiness to her husband. To them were born four children, Walter Beebe, who lives at Enid, Fred M. and Miss Grace Beebe and Mrs. May Barby, of this county [presumably Beaver County, OK]. Mr. Beebe depended entirely upon himself for support, his parents who were poor having died when he was but a mere child. He was one of the early timers of California, going there in 1850 and remaining six years. He subsequently returned to Illinois. He removed with his family in 1870 from Illinois to Barber county, Kansas, where he resided till his wife's death, which occurred in 1883. Afterwards, in 1886, he came to Beaver county, where he succeeded in building him a nice home. He followed farming and stock raising nearly all his life. A large concourse of people followed the remains to the Beaver cemetery where the body was buried, to be removed later to the Medicine Lodge cemetery where rests the remains of his wife."

Married; Mr. Walter Jackson and Miss Estella A. Harmer were united in marriage on Friday, September 9, 1898, by Rev. J.F. Irwin, of the M.E. church. The ceremony occurred at the home of W.H. McCague in this city, and immediately after, they departed for their future home on the Busey place about 3 miles east of town. The groom is a young farmer of energy and worth, who came here in March from Raymond, Nebr., and rented the Busey place, which he farmed this season. The bride is also from Raymond, and arrived in this city on Friday of last week. The Cresset extends congratulations and gladly welcomes the young couple to our community.

pg 3, col 4

Married: The following item was clipped from the Wichita Eagle of Sunday: "Mr. H.W. Burch of this city was married last Tuesday to Miss Florence L. Hitchcock of Guthrie, O.T. The wedding took place at the home of the bride's mother. Mr. Burch is a young business man of this city, who has been here for the past two years. He has made a number of friends by his uniform courtesy and by his strict attention to business has won the respect and confidence of the business men. Miss Hitchcock is a most charming lady and has a host of friends in her home at Guthrie. She will be welcomed by Mr. Burch's many friends. The new couple have the congratulations and best wishes of a great number. They will soon be at home to their friends in this city." The bride is well known in this city [Medicine Lodge], having resided here with her parents some years ago.

We are not acquainted with them. The bride and groom visited relations and friends in this county for several days and returned to their home at Kintz on the 16th. The Cresset extends best wishes.

Died: Last week the sad news reached us of the sudden death of Samuel H. Henton at his home in Woods county, Ok. Bro. Henton was one of the first settlers here, and for many years was postmaster at Sharon. He was a consistent member of the Christian church, and was well esteemed for his uprightness and integrity. He was a man worthy of confidence. He was advanced in years, being at the time of his death not far from three score and ten years of age. He moved here from Missouri nineteen years ago, and moved from Sharon to where his family at present resides about three years ago. [Sharon news]. And also @ col 5: "An Old Settler Gone" - Samuel H. Henton died at his home near Virgil, Oklahoma, Sept. 27, 1898, from heart failure. Deceased was born in Pike county, Mo., June 19, 1830. On the 13th day of November, 1855, he was joined in the holy bonds of matrimony to Mary V. Estes of Lincoln county, Mo. The deceased and his young wife settled on a farm in Montgomery county, where they resided until 1879, at which time they moved to Barber county, locating on a farm in the Sharon Valley on which is now located the town of Sharon. The deceased and his companionable wife had born to them ten children - six daughters and four sons, all whom are still living, except Norman who died in his infancy. When the strip opened for settlement deceased located on a claim two miles east of Virgel, where he continued to reside until his death and where his widow and youngest son still live. 'Squire Henton, as deceased was commonly called, was what the world could call a good man, worshiped by all his neighbors, a good conservative Christian of the Golden Rule faith.

Died: Avis Caroline, oldest child of L.M. and Caroline C. Axline, died Wednesday evening, November 8th, 1898, of congestion of the liver. On Friday evening of last week, she took sick. We were not alarmed about her until Tuesday of this week. On Sunday last she wanted to go to Sunday school, and on Monday and Tuesday mornings wanted to go to school. She never really took to her bed on account of sickness until the morning of the day she died. God gave us a sweet, fair-haired daughter. We loved her and always endeavored to do what we thought best for her. She is gone from us. Possibly the parting is for the best, but O, the sorrow brought to the mother's heart. Kind friends and neighbors assisted us in performing the last sad rites. The casket of clay that contained the soul of our first born has been consigned to mother earth, and her soul is with the angels. Avis was born February 20th, 1888. She was of a gentle and rather quiet disposition. [Note: Avis Caroline Axline was the daughter of the Cresset's Editor/Publisher. See also Index transcription @ Nov 11, 1898.]
