1838 - 1893


Mrs. Alex Clark Suffers From a Boy's Recklessness.

A Serious Wound Received at the Base of the Skull--Chances for Recovery Not Any Too Flattering--Archie Clark, a Nephew of the Injured Woman, the Boy Who Had the Gun--Engaged in Shooting at a Mark--Mrs. Clark Conscious.

About 9 o'clock yesterday morning Mrs. Alex Clark, who lives on the creek road a short distance beyond the residence of D. W. Beaty, was accidently shot by her nephew, Archie Clark. It was another of those foolish happenings where a boy is allowed to handle a gun and to shoot at every thing that happens to come in his way.

During the morning, young Clark with George Sweeting and a number of other boys, ranging in age from nine to fifteen years were engaged in shooting at a flock of doves that were flying about the neighborhood. Later they became tired of the sport and began shooting at a mark. While engaged in this work Mrs. Clark left the house and went to the barn to hunt eggs. The boys were just outside of the barn at this time, and just as Mrs. Clark stepped inside young Clark spied a crack in the side of the building which he thought he could hit. He took the gun, a 22-calibre Remmington rifle, and fired. He never stopped to see how close he came to the mark, for he had no sooner fired than the boys were frightened by hearing cries from the inside, which served to convey an idea of the injury they had done.

Upon reaching the barn they found Mrs. Clark laying on the floor, surrounded by a pool of blood. Mr. Clark was hoeing potatoes a short distance from the place, and they lost no time in notifying him of the accident. The sufferer was at once taken to the house and a physician was sent for.

Dr. Pierce was the first to arrive and he made an effort to probe for the ball, which had entered at the base of the skull, near the middle of the neck. He found the skull unbroken and the brain uninjured. The ball had been deflected from its course and had ploughed along the left side of the cheek and down the neck; at least, appearances would indicate that it had taken such a course for those parts of the body are badly swollen and inflamed. The bullet, however, could not be located, and no effort for the present will be made to find it.

Dr. Hazeltine, who is now attending the patient, says the wound is a most serious one, and that it is difficult to state what the result will be. The patient has been conscious all the time and to-day was bearing her affliction bravely, although suffering great pain. She is 55 years old and has lived at the present place for a great many years. Her husband, Mr. Alex Clark, is a brother of James Clark, well known to all Warren people.

The boys, of course, are all feeling badly over the sad occurrence, but this counts for but little, in view of the suffering which has been caused by a piece of foolishness that is only a repetition of what occurs somewhere every day of the year. The small boy and his loaded gun have caused an endless amount of misery in the past years, and it seems almost time that people should begin to realize the danger of this nuisance, and make some effort towards abating it. There is no more sense in allowing a boy to prowl around with a gun than there would be in supplying him with dynamite bombs, and either parents or law makers should come to an appreciation of the fact.

Mrs. Clark has a large circle of friends about Warren who will be shocked to hear of her distressing accident, and who will earnestly hope for a speedy recovery.

In the Thursday, July 27th edition of The Evening Democrat, page 4, just above the "Personal Mention" column:

--The condition of Mrs. Clark who was accidently shot Tuesday has not changed materially. She is resting fairly comfortably but was troubled some this morning with a high fever. The physicians think the ball is located below the left ear, but the inflamation is so bad that no attempt has been made to probe for it.



After Suffering one Week Mrs. Alexander Clarke [sic] Passes Away.

Mrs. Alexander Clarke [sic], who was accidently shot by her nephew, Archie Clark, July 25th, died last night at 10 o'clock. Ever since the shooting, Mrs. Clark has been in a critical condition and it was hardly expected by her physicans that she would recover. At several times, preparation was made to extract the bullet, which had lodged somewhere in her neck, but each time she was found in too weak a condition to undergo the operation. Her suffering has been intense and morphine has been used to quite an extent to allay the pain.

Mrs. Clarke [sic] was 55 years old and has been married for 18 years. She was raised in Sugar Grove Township and came to Warren some time after marriage. Her maiden name was May Jones Faulkman [sic; maiden name was FALCONER] and she leaves a large circle of relatives in the community of her early life. Deceased leaves no children, and Mr. Clarke [sic] is the only surviving member of the family.

The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock to-morrow [sic] at the home on the creek road, conducted by Rev. C. B. Smith of the Baptist church.

1836 - 1908

Mrs. Jane Clendenning, widow of Jos. Clendenning, died at the family home in Elk Township on Nov. 27, 1908 at the age of 72 years. Mrs. Clendenning was born at Phillipstown, N. Y., Feb. 14, 1836, and when six years old moved with her parents to the farm in Elk Township where she resided until the death of her husband on Nov. 27, 1904, since which time she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Elmer Scoby at East Warren and making an occasional visit to her old home and on her last visit there and while in the enjoyment of excellent health, she fell and was badly injured. On Oct. 10th last, later pneumonia developed and she continued to grow worse until death came to her relief on Nov. 27. By a strange coincidence her death occurred as the result of a fall on the same day in November and near the same hour of the day as her husband's death four years earlier which was also the result of a fall.

She was a woman who was loved by all who knew her. Her home was a place where all were welcome and as has been said of her she was a mother to everybody.

The funeral which was held Nov. 30, from the old home was largely attended. The funeral sermon was practiced by Rev. Schoonmaker of the United Brethren church of which deceased was a consistent member. The profusion of beautiful flowers, sweet tributes of affection, whispered words of love she could not hear, and evidenced the esteem in which she was held by her acquaintances and friends. Her remains were laid to rest in Clendenning cemetery. She is survived by four sons, James and John of Akeley; Andrew of Salamanca, N. Y.; and Harry Clendenning of North Warren and four daughters, Mrs. Jas. Cable of Warren; Mrs. Fred Burch and Mrs. Elmer Schoby of East Warren and Mrs. John Lackey of Clarendon.
