Obituary of Carl Purcell. Information provided by Marc Doty, mdcdoty@indy.rr.com, 16 Apr 2008. (Reference: The Western Spirit, Paola, Miami Co., Kansas, Friday, January 2, 1891, page 3)

"Didn't Know 'Twas Loaded. - Carl Purcell was accidentally shot and killed with a target rifle by his sister-in-law, Miss Maud Frasier, at his home on the Joe Bryan place, Richland township, last Saturday evening, Dec. 27th. Purcell had handed her the gun, stock first, and told her to snap it, forgetting that it was loaded. She pulled the trigger and the bullet, a No. 22, hit him above the right eye and buried in his brain. Death was instantaneous.

Purcell was 22 years old and leaves a wife and young baby. Mrs. Purcell is an elder sister of Maud who is heartbroken over the terrible accident. Last Saturday with S. S. Samuels in Paola, Purcell exchanged his gun, a Quackenbush rifle, for one of finer finish and Samuels had got one also. Going home he loaded it and evidently forgot about it. With the one he exchanged different ones about the house had been fooling, snapping at this and that and that evening after getting home they were handling the guns and as though shooting. Miss Fraser had just handed Samuels' back to him when Purcell gave her his, saying "try this one, it is best." This was the last he spoke.

Coroner Reichard was notified and he summoned the jury who investigated the affair and rendered the following verdict:

The said Carlton W. Purcell came to his death on Dec. 27th, A.D. 1890, in his own house in Richland township, Miami county, from the effect of a wound in the head made by a leaden bullet, fired from a target rifle - 22 caliber, while in the hand of Maud Frasier, she not knowing the gun was loaded. We further find that the act is excusable homicide.

D. D. Bryan, John Burns, M. B. Carns, C. L. Lillie, O. S. Lee, James Bryan - Jury."

The text selected by a loving sister - "She is not dead, but sleepeth." - Luke 8-52, was beautifully adopted for the occasion.

Obituary of Ann Ranney. Information provided by Marc Doty, mdcdoty@indy.rr.com, 16 Apr 2008. (Reference: The Western Spirit, Paola, Miami Co., Kansas, Friday, August 28, 1891, page 3)

"Through a fatal accident on the night of the 25th inst., Mrs. Ann Ranney, mother of Judge Ranney, was deprived of useful life. A lamp exploded in her bed-room and she inhaled the flame and was otherwise burned so that death followed in four or five hours. Being an invalid, past eighty-four years of age, nearly helpless from paralysis, she was unable to get out of the room quick enough.

At the home of her son, A. J. Ranney, Mound township, she had just gone into the bed-room, where the lamp had been lighted a few minutes before, about 8 o'clock Tuesday evening last, when Mrs. Ranney, her daughter-in-law, who was playing the organ, heard a moaning scream and dashed to the half open door to find the old lady, the bureau and bed in flames.. She shrieked the alarm, and Mr. Ranney, who was sitting outside the door talking to a neighbor, sprang into the house and from the blazing bed-room, carried his mother into the yard, stripping clothes from her as rapidly as he could. Two colored men who happened to be there jumped at once into the room and bravely struggled in the fire till they got nearly every thing thrown out of the window, thus saving the house.

Everything possible was done for the poor woman, but life was nearly gone, and she died at 1 o'clock in the night. Her hands and body were severely burned, but death resulted no doubt from inhalation of the blaze and the severe shock of the terrible accident. Mr. Ranney was seriously scorched and the flesh burned from his hands.

The deceased was born on St. Patrick's day, 1807, in Ontario county, New York, and with her husband lived in Wisconsin about twenty years. From there the family came to this county in 1866 and lived here ever since, and only a few years ago she and William Ranney celebrated their golden wedding. Her husband died two years ago at the age of four score and four, and now she rests her dust with his in the little cemetery on the hill in Osage township near the Durst farm. Three sons and two daughters mourn the death of a noble and devoted mother - Mrs. Emily Van Alstine, Janesville, Wisconsin; Wm. O. Ranney, Osawatomie; A. J. Ranney, Mound; Mrs. Oliver Niles, Mound and Judge Ranney, Paola.

Mrs. Ranney was an exemplary member of the M. E. church, and in every sphere of life was a charitable, cheerful, industrious and useful woman. Her friends, the aged and the children, will miss her and lament her loss. The funeral last Wednesday was largely attended by relatives and neighbors."
