BABY KILLED AS LADDER FALLS

Pulling his father's paint ladders down on him as he clambered across them to play at 11:30 a.m. Thursday morning inthe rear of Nyrer Avenue, three year old Robert Guy Nabors, baby son of Florian and Alma Neighbors brought death to himself when the falling ladders pinned him underneath and broke his neck.

Mr. Nabors is a painter and house decorator. He keeps a long extension ladder in the pathway that runs along the side of his house. It was about this ladder that the baby played, climbing on the rungs.

But the baby reckoned without its weight as an over balance. When the double ladder suddenly toppled down, baby Nabors was caught underneath and one side of the ladder struck a blow that broke his spinal cord

Floyd Nabors, next older of the six brothers and sisters was playing at the same time and he rushed to the house, but was unable to open the screen door which was locked. His cries could not be heard by the parents both of whom are deaf. Neighbors rushed in and informed those in the house and the ladder was lifted. Robert Guy however, had died almost instantly.

There are three girls, Carrie, Susan and Inez and three boys, Floran, Floyd and Robert Guy in the Nabors family. Funeral services will be held in the home Saturday, the time to be announced later, followed by burial in the Point Marion Cemetery.

Charles Bernard NELSON Stone  (1854-1920)

RELATIONS OF ATTORNEY AND CLIENT SECRET
Interesting Ruling by Judge Work in Orphans Court
DAY’S COURT NEWS

   Holding that the relations of attorney and client are confidential and sacred, Judge J. C. Work, in an opinion handed down yesterday in the estate of Charles Bernard Nelson, Wharton township, who died November 26, 1920, refused to admit testimony of Attorney W. R. Johnson in the claim of Clara Speers for $1,820.40 for services rendered as housekeeper for the deceased from April 1, 1917, till November 26, 1920. Attorney Johnson had driven to the home of the deceased to draw up his will and in the presence of his son the deceased stated that he did not know how much he owed his housekeeper but that she would know as she kept an account of it. He said he had paid her less than $100.

   Clara Speers claimed $10 per week for services but had no written agreement or oral testimony outside that of the attorney and his son and this was not allowed in testimony. In the will, the deceased bequeathed $1,000 to “My housekeeper, Clara Speers,” who was named as executrix of the estate. In commenting upon the case, Judge Work stated, “Where the client is dead and the communications to be testified to are such as would prejudice his estate, we think that as the client’s lips are sealed by death the attorney’s lips are sealed by law.”

   The assets were both real and personal. The personal amounted to $1,283.72. In settling the bills the personal estate was not sufficient to meet the debts and the executrix secured an order of Court to sell certain real estate. The total amounted to $7,432.05 and the balance $5,310.64. Testimony showed that the executrix not only took care of the deceased’s home but that she was in charge of his 134 acre farm of which 25 acres was cleared and that she worked on the farm the same as a man, sawing wood, farming, etc.

BUSH ENTERS A
PLEA OF GUILTY
AND IS PAROLED

Man Accused of Murder is Released
by Agreement of Defense
and Prosecution.

NICHOLS FAMILY AGREES

Attorney for Defense Explains to
Court That Relatives of Man
Bush Shot Have Not Objected to Slayer’s
Release; Case Comes to Sudden End
Special to The Courier.

  UNIONTOWN, March 8— John C. Bush of Bellevernon, today signed a plea of guilty to voluntary manslaughter, withdrawing his pleas of “not guilty” to the indictment charging him with the murder of Andrew Nichols in a gambling room in South Brownsville on January 11. Upon the recommendation of the members of the Nichols family, represented in court by Attorney W. C. McKean, Judge J. Q. Van Swearingen directed that Bush be paroled. After four of the commonwealth’s witnesses had testified yesterday the trial of Bush was abruptly halted at 3:15 o’clock and the jury locked in the jury room. It was intimated shortly afterward that there was a possibility of a plea being entered. The jury was brought into court this morning at 9:03 o’clock and Judge Van Swearingen stated that Bush, by consent of counsel for the commonwealth, had withdrawn his plea of not guilty and had entered a plea of guilty to voluntary manslaughter. The members of the jury, who have been on the case since Tuesday, were discharged from further service until 1:30 o’clock this afternoon.

   Bush, with Senator William E. Crow and former District Attorney S. Ray Shelby, his counsel, took his place at the defendant’s counsel table where he signed the plea. He was then called before the bar with Senator Crow and Attorney McKean. Mr. McKean said:

   “If the court pleases, last evening after the adjournment of court, in fact before court adjourned and during the afternoon recess, counsel for the defense, Mr. May and myself had some talk with a view of coming to an understanding concerning the disposition of the case. It was proposed that it might meet with the favor of the court that the plea of not guilty entered by the defendant when he was arraigned might be withdrawn and the plea of voluntary manslaughter entered. Being somewhat familiar with what we had a right to anticipate would be the line of defense by reason of being acquainted with the testimony introduced at the time of the inquest and from what had been testified to on the hearing of the habeas corpus at the time the defendant was admitted to bail, and knowing the testimony upon the part of the Commonwealth as it wound be introduced before this jury, in fact taking all things into consideration that would be a proper disposition of the case. There was some question then of the question then was raised by the defense whether or not there would be any opposition to the parole of the defendant. Of course I could not answer that positively, and so after court adjourned I went to Brownsville and met the family, the father and the mother and the brothers, of the deceased, and I laid the matter before them as I understood it and am satisfied I made it plain to them, and after considerable talk being satisfied that there was a complete understanding mentioned plainly to them that I anticipated that application would be made to the court, explaining to them as I did what a parole meant, that he defendant would be under the surveillance of the court, there would be certain terms as I understood it upon which a parole would be granted if looked upon favorable by the court—in that I am not mistaken as to there being certain terms upon which a parole is granted, am I?”
By the court;
   “No. It was agreed by the family, they all being present, I believe, the father and the mother and the three or four sons,

Child Falls Off Porch
Into Pail Water; Drowns

   Bertha Nicholson, 14 months old, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Nicholson, who resided along the Springfield pike, was drowned yesterday afternoon about 3 o’clock when she fell on the porch of the Nicholson home into a 50-pound lard can partly filled with water. The mother discovered her child a few minutes after the accident occurred and her screams attracted the attention of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph D. Hood who reside near the Nicholson home. Mrs. Hood rendered first aid but all efforts to save the child were futile. Dr. J. L. Cochran was summoned and responded promptly. The Fire Department also hurried to the Nicholson home with a pulmotor. All efforts to revive the child failed. Mrs. Nicholson was getting her children ready to attend the combined picnic of the Methodist Episcopal Church and Sunday School which was being held at Shady Rest, the summer home of Mr. and Mrs. S. B. Dull along the pike, and had left the baby in an improvised cage on the front porch of the home, the entrance being closed by a chair. The child was playing with a rubber ball and when it bounced and rolled off the porch, falling into the pail, the baby attempted to recover it. She crawled under the chair and edged her way to the porch steps. While looking for the ball she lost her balance and fell head down into the lard can which was used for collecting rain water. Besides her parents she is survived by the following brothers and sisters, Oliver Wilmer, Doris and Leanna. The body was prepared for burial by Charles A. McCormick assistant to Funeral Director Charles C. Mitchell. Coroner S. A. Baltz was notified and announced accidental drowning as the cause of death. The funeral service will be held Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Nicholson home with Rev. Bennett W. Hutchinson pastor of the First Methodist Episcopal Church officiating.

James NICHOLSON ( -1833)

COMMUNICATED

   Departed this life, on the 2nd, of December last, at the residence of his father in New Geneva, JAMES NICHOLSON, Esq., in the 33rd year of his age. By this painful dispensation, the church has been bereaved of a distinguished member, the various moral enterprises of an ardent and efficient friend, and society of one of its ornaments. It will be recollected that he was twice elected the U. State Legislature and filled the station with credit. He was among the earliest, as well as most active and energetic advocators of the Temperance reformation in this county; and the fruits of his exertions in that interesting cause will it is believed, long continue as an evidence of his usefulness. Nor was he less distinguished as a patron of the Sabbath school system. Justly appreciating its value and infinite importance to the rising generation he labored to carry it fully into effect throughout the whole sphere of his influence. An interesting Sabbath school which he instituted in his native village and continued to superintend while health permitted, will long lament his loss. About two years previous to his death he publicly professed religion and united with the Presbyterian church of George’s Creed. With him religion was not a mere matter of form but a living reality and he evinced the sincerity of his faith by the devotion of all his powers to the service of his Redeemer. His career of usefulness was comparatively short. The sovereign disposer of all events as if to show his independence of all human instruments terminated it almost as soon as it had fairly commenced. – The disease by which he ended his life was a lingering one; and for some time he was called to contemplate the approaches of the kind of terrors. This he did with perfect composure in the exercise of a hope found alone on the merits of a Redeemer. His dying example gave force to the language of his life. The Saviour in whom he confided, gently sustained him in the last conflict and with a judgment unclouded, a mind at peace, and a heart cheered with the hope of a blessed immortality, he bid a final adieu to the scenes of his earthly pilgrimage.

“Life’s duty done, as sinks the clay,
Light from its load the spirit flies;
While heaven and earth combine to say,
How blest the righteous when he dies.”

n the Gray dawn of Sunday morning one of the worst wrecks that has occurred on the Baltimore & Ohio railroad in many years happened at Pine Grove station, three and one half miles east of Rockwood. Engineer William Nicholson and Fireman William H. Rinehart were instantly killed and O. E. Stahl an express messenger was seriously injured being burned and hurt internally. Three express cars with all their contents were burned in the fire that followed the wreck. An immense rock that had fallen across the track on the curve was the cause of the wreck. The heavy rains of the past two weeks had loosened the huge stone from the mountain side and it only had to drop a few feet to fall on the track. The rock was about 30 feet long and 20 feet wide by 3 feet in thickness. The scene of the accident is one of the sharpest curves on the division. A watch box stands just opposite where the rock fell. The track is good at that point and from Garrett to Rockwood the engineers run fast. Engineer Nicholson was a few minutes behind time on Sunday morning and was making about 40 miles an hour when his ponderous engine, No. 1407 dashed into the rock. Nicholson could not see the rock more than one rail lengths back and as there was a heavy fog it is probable that he did not see it at all. None of the passengers noticed the train slack up any before the shock came. When the engine struck it jumped over the rock and plunged into the soft embankment above the C….. It then turned completely over and landed headed east about 100 yards from where the rock was struck. When the engine turned over both Engineer Nicholson and Fireman Rinehart were thrown out of the cab. The passengers back in the coaches were tumbled from their seats and berths. The escape of the rural clerk and Baggage Master Burton was almost miraculous. The three express cars were piled on top of one another up the mountain side. The hot coals from the engine set the wreckage on fire and in a few moments the express cars were in flames. Express Messenger Stahl got out of his car through the roof just in time. The passengers and trainmen formed a bucket brigade but were unable to check the flames. At daybreak Fireman Rinehart’s body was found pinned against the mountain side. It was saved from the flames. One of his feet was burned off and his body badly charred, but his face was not disfigured. The wreck trains from Cumberland and Connellsville arrived on the scene about 7 o’clock. It was not until they had the wreck almost cleared away that what little was left of Engineer Nicholson was found. His body had been ground to pieces beneath the engine and then burned. The remains were placed in a water bucket and taken to Rockwood with those of Fireman Rinehart. A temporary track was laid b y 2 o’clock and the eastbound trains at Rockwood were let through. The wrecked train arrived here at 4 o’clock Sunday afternoon. Beyond a few bruises, none of the passengers were injured. They had a thrilling experience in saving the coaches from the fire. The coaches did not leave track and when the fire broke out, passengers and trainmen shoved the big coaches back out of danger of the flames. Two of the express cars were filled with strawberries and cucumbers. The other car contained miscellaneous matter. The loss of the wreck is estimated at $25,000. Engineer Nicholson was about 50 years of age. He was married and the father of five children, four girls and one boy. All are grown up. He was one of the oldest and most trustworthy men on the road. His home was at Glenwood. Fireman Rhinehart also leaves a wife and family. He too, lived at Glenwood. The funerals of both men were held on Tuesday. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and Ladies Auxiliary attended.

George NICKEL (1807-1879)

NICKEL— We are called upon this week to announce the death of one of our oldest and most widely known and respected citizens, Mr. George Nickel, of New Haven. Deceased took a chill on the morning of the 2nd inst., while engaged at his work in the mill of Peter Baisron in this place, which so prostrated him that he was compelled to go home. Becoming worse, he was put to bed and medical aid summoned, but in vain, for, as he himself expressed it, the machinery of life was worn out, and in spite of all that could be done for him, he sank gradually and expired about two o’clock on Saturday morning last. The funeral, which took place Sunday afternoon, was attended by a large concourse of relatives, friends and acquaintances. Mr. Nickel was born in Dunbar township, near the old “Maria Forge”, then operated by Isaac Meason, in the year 1807. His father worked at the forge, and here the subject of this sketch was reared and obtained the limited education those days afforded. He married, at the early age of 19 years, Mary Daugherty, who bore him several children, vis: Mrs. Oliver Robinson, Mrs. John A. McBeth, Mrs. John B. McCrory all of whom reside in Connellsville, and Dr. John R. Nickel, since dead. In 1832, the youthful couple lived upon the farm of Joseph Strickler, now owned by Mr. James Wilkey, in Dunbar Twp. Several years after he was engaged in his employer’s distillery, which stood near the present Wilkey mansion. Accumulating a little fund, he next leased from Strickler the adjoining farm, now owned by the Connellsville Gas Coal Company, and embarked in agriculture as his own master. After a brief experience of two years, he gave up farming and accepted a position in the flouring mill located on this side of the Youghiogheny, near what is now known as the “Old Stone Mill,” then owned by the Gibson’s and operated by a man named Bolton, where he learned milling and became a practical miller. While here, he was offered, and accepted, full charge of the grist mill then known as the Evans mill, located near the old stone house on the Evans farm this side of Uniontown. Scarcely had he moved into his new home and gotten comfortably settled when the mill was completely destroyed by fire. He immediately moved back to New Haven, where, shortly after his arrival, he obtained a situation in the old steam mill then in active operation under the management of …. Bolton & Strickler, his former employers. It was while working here that he lost his first wife, who died in 1840. Soon after, he married his second wife, Miss Betsey Fisher. In the spring of 1845, a misunderstanding arose between his employers and himself and he gave up his position in the steam mill. He was immediately offered charge of Keister’s mill, then owned by John W. Stouffer, and to that place he moved at once and assumed his duties. By his thrift and business capacity, he here laid the foundations of his future prosperity in life, in the shape of eighty barrels of flour, which he accumulated, and, upon the severance of his connection with Mr. Stouffer, two years afterwards, he brought to this place with him as capital. Upon his return he went back to his old position as miller in the steam mill, where his eighty barrels of flour increased and multiplied under his judicious management, until the proceeds thereof enabled him to purchase a one-fourth ownership in the present mill then being built by Mr. Strickler, who, with Hon. Daniel Kaine, were his partners in this new venture. Assuming control of the new mill, he soon made it the most popular in the country round about. Mr. Strickler died some time in ’50, and the surviving partners became sole owners. Mr. Nickel continued to exercise an active superintendency over the business of the mill until he became involved. His second wife died in 1873, and he married in June, 1874, Mrs. Kate Spratt. In 1855, he established a cooper shop with Mr. David Carson, in the old paper mill, which they conducted with profit until it was destroyed by fire in the spring of 1874. Mr. Nickel was thoroughly honest, and unfortunately looked without suspicion upon others. This, with his disposition to oblige, led him to frequently lend his name to bolster up the credit of his more unlucky friends. As a natural consequence, the panic of 1873- 74 found him so hopelessly involved by endorsements of this kind, that it was impossible to extricate himself. His property and effects were all sold and in his declining years he was forced to begin anew the battle of life; but he did so without a murmur. He took charge of his brother’s store in New Haven and conducted the business until about a year ago, when the ownership changed hands. Since this time and until he was taken down with his last illness, he occupied the position of miller in the flouring mill on this side of the river. Of him, it may truly be said, that he died in the harness. He was an earnest member of the Disciples Church, and has no doubt, entered into his eternal reward.

Grover NICKLER ( -1905)

SHOT BY ACCIDENT

Grover Nickler Lying Near
Death’s Door at the
Hospital

JIM BRADY HELD THE GUN.

Did Not Know It Was Loaded and
Snapped the Trigger With the Usual
Result – Bullet Passed Through
Nickler’s Right Lung.

   Grover Nickler a young man who has not yet attained his majority was shot perhaps fatally shortly before eight o’clock on Thursday by James Brady who is about the same age. Nickler ran the shooting gallery owned by J. W. Sargent on West Main street. Brady and Nickler were the best of friends and went to the gallery for the purpose of testing their shooting capabilities. Brady took the first shot and made a fairly good mark. He then picked up another gun and ……….[illegible] to make his second shot. The guns are supposed to remain unloaded over night and his firearm had not been used yesterday. Nickler came back to the counter … cartridge and Boyd snapped the trigger of the weapon. It was loaded, Nickler standing a few inches away from the muzzle of the gun, received the discharge in his body the shot penetrating his right lung. Brady led the injured man to the office of Dr. Milan Kovalvic and went after the police. Officer Detemple was on duty at the lockup and proceeded to lock Brady up. Detemple then went to where the injured boy was. He immediately sent a call for the ambulance which took Nickler to the hospital. The wounded man seemed to be dying, and Justice of the Peace Frank Miller was called to the hospital to take a deposition. Dr. R. J. Coll, M. B. Shupe and Officer Detemple were present at this. Nickler was too weak to have the oath administered to him and barely managed to gasp that the shooting was an accident pure and simple. The police notified County Detective Alex McBeth and District Attorney Thomas H. Hudson immediately and both ordered that no information be made against Brady until he had time to get down here. The County Detective will be here this afternoon to make an investigation. Nickler has no mother and his father lives at Bucyrus, O. He has an uncle David Nickler at Normalville who was notified of the accident by telephone this morning. Young Brady was calm and composed when interviewed by a reporter for The Courier in his cell at the borough lockup. He said that the shooting was purely accidental and that he had no idea that the gun was loaded. He knew that it was a custom for guns to be emptied each night and the gun he picked up had not been used that morning. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Brady who live at No. 366 Water avenue. The hospital authorities state that Nickler’s condition is serious but that there are hopes for his recovery. Those however are very slim as the ball penetrated his lung, and small as the bullet is it may cause the young man’s death. The boy is very weak and is unable to talk. Another member of Nickler’s family was shot several months ago. The young man is a brother of Miss Mame Nickler who was mysteriously shot in her home in Springfield township. William Rose who had been giving the girl some attention was accused of the shooting and stood trial for it. He was convicted but has never been called for sentence. He is now at his home in Springfield township. Miss Nickler has fully recovered from her wound. She was shot through the breast with a revolver and claimed that the shooting was done through a window or door while she was at work in the kitchen. Rose claimed that he found the girl wounded in her home. He gave the alarm to neighbors and later was arrested. There were some peculiar circumstances connected with the shooting, and prosecution, and Rose is not likely ever to be called for sentence. Young Nickler’s father Benjamin Nickler moved from Sprague township not long ago to Ohio. The boy had been making his home with his uncle David Nickler in Normalville. He had been in Connellsville for a day or so before the shooting this morning.

He was about 35 years of age and a native of Little Orleans. He had been engaged in the bark and lumber business for a number of years.

The body was removed from the Cumberland and Pennsylvania baggage car in which Mr. Norris died, to Butler’s Undertaking establishment where the coroner viewed the body.

Caroline NORRIS ( -1897)

BURNED TO DEATH

AFTER BEING TORTURED AND ROBBED OF HER MONEY

Laid on Torrid Hot Stove

Mrs. Caroline Norris and her young grandson, Samuel, horribly treated by tramps who took their money and then covered up their crimes with fire.

Tortured, robbed and then killed was the fate of Mrs. Caroline Norris, an aged lady who resides in the lower part of Allegany County, and her grandson, Samuel. The deed of dastardly tramps it is supposed to be and the men who committed the terrible ….are s upposed to be …..ly in jail at Martinsburg, W. Va., charged with robbing bodies and ca… The crime was perpetrated on last Wednesday evidently, though it was not discovered until Friday, and news, which circulates slowly through that section on the county, did not reach here until last night.

Away from Civilization

From the meager debris gathered, the woman and the child lived alone in a small log cabin near Piney Plaine. This section is in District No. I and is sparsely settled. Wild, rough scenery abounds and in places the houses are miles apart. Neighbors seldom see on another unless it be at a public gathering of some kind. Mrs. Morris, it is said, had not been living with her husband for some years. She had a small farm on which she lived and cultivated it. She had considerable money, and with an eye to business, loaned it out on interest. This fact was well known in the neighborhood and doubtless ….. the robbery and murder, for murdered she was as appearances show.

Fiendish Devils

With a devilishness worthy of fiends from the regions below, the men set about extracting information from the woman as to where she kept her money. No one will ever know what she was subjected to in the torturing process, but that she was most horribly maltreated before she died is evidenced by the appearance of her body. When the crime was discovered the woman was found lying across a stove, with her grandson but a few feet away, in the ruins of the cabin. Her hands and feet were securely tied and the fiendish work of the human devils was plainly visible. Very little flesh remained on her bones and what was left was charred and blackened. But through the …. Blackened …… could be discerned a book of most horrible agony, featured distorted with pain, and despair in the expression of the eye that must have been focused just at the moment her soul took flight. The grandson, Samuel, though blackened and burned, lay with a peaceful expression on this face, as though the fiend’s had mercifully struck him down without torture.

She Had Money

She always had a quantity of silver money in the house, and when the ruins were searched not a trace of any could be found. Only the clasp of an old pocket book was seen---a pocketbook in which she had been known to carry money.

The Fire

The fire is supposed to have occurred on last Wednesday night. Neither the woman nor the boy Samuel had been seen since late Wednesday night persons in that vicinity, who had a view unobstructed by mountains, saw a fiery glare in the neighborhood in which the Norris cabin was located. Those who saw it paid little attention to it and did not make an investigation, and was not until Friday that the terrible deed was found out. The husband of Mrs. Norris was told that there had been a fire in the vicinity of his wife’s home and with a neighbor went to see what had happened. His awful discovery was made and he sat down by the ruins of the cabin and wept.

Murder Claimed

An inquest was held and the coroner’s jury decided that the woman and the child were murdered. She was sixty-five and he ten years of age. The skulls of both are now in the possession of Dr. ouderbaugh, who has found clotted blood in the skulls of each and a fracture in the woman’s skull. Two revolvers that Mrs. Norris always kept in the house are missing and it is thought they were taken with the money. The county officers are now at work on the case.

TERRIBLE FATES

Pursing the Stricken Norris Family

Five Have Met Violent Deaths

The Family Nearly Swept Away by Accidents—Further Details of the Awful Murder at Piney Plains—The Norrises Were Pioneers in this County. Additional details of the terrible murder at Piney Plains which was told in yesterday’s TIMES, have been received through Mr. Douglas Quinzel, of Baltimore, son-in-law of Mrs. Caroline Norris, one of the victims of the horrible affair. He received a telegram on Sunday last, dated Little Orleans, W. VA. The message was signed by Thomas A. Norris, husband of the woman who had met such a terrible fate. Mr. Quinzel went at once to the scene and returned yesterday.

“The home burned,” said he, “was stocked from top to bottom with merchandise of every character. It represented the life work of Mr. and Mrs. Norris. She had made immense rolls of rag carpets, and the place was simply packed with other material. The old folks were well to do, and I suppose there was considerable money about the house when Mrs. Norris was killed. She conducted a sort of trading business and loaned money in small amounts. The house was two stories high and nicely fitted up. The place had been purchased about two years ago. The located was very isolated and in winter a dreary spot. The Norrises also owned a farm across the valley, and the fact that Mr. Norris spent a good deal of his time there gave rise no doubt to the report that the two had separated permanently. This is not so. The old people were on the best of terms, and I know that the death of his wife will nearly kill the old man.”

“No one knows anything concerning the murder and burning of the house except those who participated in the crime. Mrs. Norris and Sammy, her grandson, was the only persons there that night. Old man Norris had ridden across the valley to see his wife, but as the out-houses were full of fodder, etc., he had no place to put his horse. He went back to the other farm, which, on an air line, is about three miles distant, but by road is seven miles from the scene of the tragedy.

About 10 o’clock that night, a bright glare was seen in the vicinity of the Norris home. People in the mountains thought nothing of this, imagining that someone was burning brush. This was Wednesday night, and on Thursday morning a Mrs. Sykes who lives a mile and a half from the Norrises, sent her 7 year old to borrow a bucket. The boy came back crying, saying that the Norris home had been burned, and the old woman and her grandson Sammy had been burned to death.

When Mr. Sykes returned from Little Orleans he was notified and in turn told Mr. Norris of the sad affair. An Investigation resulted in the finding of the two bodies burned to a crisp. Saturday a jury summoned by Justice Fletcher, heard what little testimony could be obtained, and rendered a verdict that the two had been murdered, and the house fired by parties unknown to the jury. Mr. Quinzel, said he did not visit the scene of the fire, but stopped at the house of the other farm owned by Mr. Norris.

The Norrises had lived in the vicinity for years. Both, in fact, had been born in the mountains. Norris made a clearing and settled on the place which he now occupies. He was one of the pioneers of that part of Allegany County and is known for miles around. He and his faithful wife worked unremittingly and accumulated quite a large fortune. For a long time and up to the period of Governor Lowndes’ inauguration Mr. Norris had been a justice of the peace. Mrs. Norris was 70 years of age and Mr. Norris is 72.

A strange fatality seems to hang over the Norris family. Three sons have met violent deaths. One was killed by a railroad train while trying to hand a bag of apples to a relative, who was a fireman on the engine. He had often performed the feat successfully, but once too often he tried it. He was caught by the drive wheel and terribly mangled. This was the father of the boy Sammy, who was burned with his grandmother.

Another son of the Norrises was killed while attempting to lift a log, and another, while yet a boy, was killed while crawling through a hole in a fence. Now comes the double tragedy---the death of the mother of the ill-fated boys and her grandson.

A BRUTAL MURDER IS RECALLED

DYING CONFESSION OF A GUILTY MAN

THE BURNING OF MRS. NORRIS

In Orleans District in 1897, said to have been confessed by Wm. Pennell, who was lynched for another murder in Illinois. “Murder will out.” Information has just come to this city to the effect that one William Pennell, who was lynched some months ago in a town in Western Illinois, had confessed to the murder of Mrs. Cornelius (Caroline) Norris and her little ten (seven) year old grandson, who were burned to death in their humble little home in the mountainous section of Orleans district on the night of November 28, 1897.

News of the confession was brought to Constable Wm. A. Hendrickson by Miss Creek, a sister in law of Mr. Daniel Crabtree, who had been visiting in Illinois. After the awful tragedy in Orleans district Mr. Hendrickson was detailed to ferret the mystery if possible and apprehend the inhuman fiend who committed the outrage. When Miss Creek returned from her visit in the west she sought the constable and told him that in the settlement in which her relatives lived in Illinois, there were several families who came from the lower end of Allegany County, and that a few months ago Wm Pennell had murdered and robbed a man in an alley in a nearby town and was arrested before he could escape. Pennell was taken from the officers by a crowd of men who were infuriated over the crime and was speedily put to death. Before his life was taken Pennell was permitted to make a statement and then it was that he confessed to the murder of Mrs. Norris. According to the statement made to the constable, Pennell said no one except himself was implicated in the crime. He said he went to the Norris house and found the old lady rendering lard on the kitchen stove. He struck her with an axe, killing her almost instantly and then ransacked the premises for money, securing seventy dollars and three notes. Afterward he threw the body of the woman across the stove and spilling the kettle of lard, set the place afire.

The ten (seven) year old child was asleep upstairs at the time and was burned to death in the fire which consumed the building. It was perhaps two days before the skeletons of the old lady and little boy were found in the cellar.

The remains of Mrs. Norris when found were across the cooking stove, which had also fallen into the cellar with the ruins. Pennell, who was a notorious character, was well known in that vicinity and suspicion rested upon him, but sufficient evidence to warrant his arrest could never be obtained. Pennell had been raised in Buck Valley, PA., a region not far from where the murder occurred. He was accused of another crime in Fulton County afterward and the sheriff attempted to arrest him but Pennell fired upon the officers from a barn, wounding one of them. He escaped, afterward, drifted west and has not been heard of since, so far as known until today.
