Contributor: Carolyn DeBiasi - cdbrc@aol.com === "Muskogee Daily Phoenix" - Oklahoma - Apr 27 1938 pg 1 & 4 JNO. S. BARGER, 77, FORMER MUSKOGEE SHERIFF, SUCCUMBS Defeated "Uncle Bud" Ledbetter for Nomination; Re-elected in 1914 Partner Killed in Texas Widely Known Muskogeean Came to City for Visit in 1902; Became Resident Jno. S. Barger, 77, former Muskogee county sheriff and a resident of this city for the past 36 years, died at 6:45 o'clock yesterday evening at his home, 416 Okmulgee avenue. Barger had been in ill health for several months. Barger was born in the state of Mississippi, in 1860, and moved with members of his family to the state of Illinois in 1866, when he was 6 years old. Two years later, the Barger family removed to Lexington, Tenn., where Barger lived until he was a young man. Came to City in 1902 Later, he moved to Hillsboro, Texas where he was employed in the cotton buying business. In the spring of 1902, he came to Muskogee to visit his mother and brother, both of whom lived here and who were ill. He liked the town so well that he remained. Barger was employed by the Spaulding Mercantile Co. as manager of its gin, then located on the site of the old M. O. and G. railroad station, and later was employed by the Patterson Mercantile Co. In 1914, he was elected sheriff of Muskogee county, defeating the late J. F. "Uncle Bud" Ledbetter, pioneer Oklahoma peace officer who died recently, in the democratic primary, and defeating W. S. Harsha, the republican nominee in the general election by a vote of 2336 to 2199. In 1916, he was renominated for a second term, and in the general election defeated a republican, F. J. Bays, by a vote of 3323 to 2165. In 1918, Barger sought a third term as sheriff, but was defeated by Sheriff Jim Robbins, who served two terms, retired and was succeded by Ledbetter. Employed as Speed Officer After his defeat for a third term as sheriff, Barger was employed by the county commissioners as "speed officer" to curb the then-growing autombile menace and was given a county patrol car to cruise country roads and highways and force respect for traffic laws. Since 1928, he had been employed as bailiff by Judge Enlo V. Vernor, who has been on the county or district bench all of that time. It was in connection with his duties as county speed officer that Barger lived through one of his most harrowing experiences as a peace officer - that of watching while desperadoes shot a fellow officer to death. Barger himself was chained to a tree. On May 19, 1924, the county's "speed patrol" car was stolen from the Koehler garage by Dave and Bill Lawrence, young Muskogee desperadoes who lived with their mother in Muskogee. Bill Lawrence had just finished serving a sentence in the state penitentiary at McAllister for robbery of a freight car at Ft. Gibson, and the pair was wanted for auto theft in Durant, Okmulgee, Bristow, Ardmore, and Henryetta and was suspected of several robberies in Muskogee. Youths Caught in El Paso After several unsuccessful attempts to catch them here, Sheriff Ledbetter was notified on June 24, 1924, that the pair had been apprehended at El Paso, Texas on the Mexican border, and sent Barger and Deputy sheriff Joe Morgan after them. Morgan and Barger left Muskogee on the Katy train on Friday the 13th. After taking charge of the prisoners, Barger and Morgan started back with them in the county's car. Barger was driving and Morgan was in the rear seat with Dave and Bill Lawrence. Barger said that he did not know how the boys got Morgan's gun, but he heard a shot, looked around and found himself peering in the barrel of a revolver held in Dave Lawrence's hand. Morgan had slumped to the floor, shot through the head. After shooting Morgan, the boys forced Barger to walk off the road into a woods, handcuffed him to a tree and escaped again in the county's car. Barger shouted until he attracted attention of a ranch worker, who refused to aid him until officers arrived and rescued him. He then went to Ft. Worth, where he organized a posse of Tarrant county officers and took up the trail. Sheriff Ledbetter took several Muskogee county officers to Texas to join the hunt, but the Lawrence boys later were seen near Council Hill, in Muskogee County. Sheriff Recalled Events Barger returned to Muskogee the next day with Morgan's body. Barger was handcuffed to the tree for three hours - from 7 a.m. until 10 o'clock. It was 11 o'clock when he reached Fort Worth. He said the Lawrence boys taunted him, telling him they had informed him he would never bring them back, rifled his pockets of money, tobacco and other belongings, and then shackled him. Sheriff Barger told this story: "We left Sanderson, Texas Sunday afternoon where the two prisoners had been given over to us by the officers of that place. The Lawrence boys were not known to be hardboiled. Joe and I had known them since they were knee-high to a duck. We never imagined for a minute there would be any trouble on that long trip home. We were making the trip in the car the boys had stolen, and in which they were headed for Mexico. "I didn't realize what had happened when I heard the report of the pistol until I har Bill Lawrence tell me to "Put 'em up." I put up my hands. Morgan had slumped down in his seat. Blood was flowing from his head. He never moved a muscle. He was dead. The car, going at a rate of at least 20 miles an hour, crashed into a fence. It righted itself and mowed down fence posts for 30 or 40 yards, then it stopped." Lifts Body from Auto "Bill Lawrence handed his gun to his brother. He forced me to help lift Joe's body to the seat. A car sped by just as this thing was done. Fearing my own life would be taken, I made no outcry. Babe Lawrence had the gun pointed at me. He took my pistol from the front seat pocket of the car. After he had shifted Morgan's body to the back seat, Bill Lawrence took the wheel. I was forced to the back seat to watch Joe's body. "The younger Lawrence boy climbed into the front seat with his brother and held the gun on me. He got out after he had driven about a quarter of a mile, and opened a gate to a ranch. Driving in, Bill Lawrence ran quickly to a thicket. He had gone about 200 yards when he stopped. The boys forced me to get out. They made me put my hands around a tree, and placed handcuffs on my wrists. Then they unloaded Joe's body about eight feet from me, jumped into the car, turned around and sped toward Fort Worth." Bill Lawrence later was hanged in Arizona and Dave, "Babe" Lawrence is serving a life term in Texas for Morgan's death. Barger and G. H. Hettick, now a deputy county clerk, then civil deputy sheriff, were witnesses in both trials. Barger and Mayor J. E. Wyand, accused by a grand jury for alleged failure to enforce liquor and gambling laws, were aquitted by a jury in 1917. They were procecuted by the late S. P. Freeling, then attorney general. Funeral services are incomplete, but will be announced later by Guipel Funeral Home. Survivors include the widow, Mrs. Laura M. Barger, five nephews, Dave, W.B. Bruce of Muskogee, Lytton of Topeka, Kan., Ralph of Oak Park, Ill., and Ray of Kansas City, MO., and five nieces, Mrs. Nina Ivy, Memphis, Mrs. Kate Haggard, Mrs. W. B. Harris, Mrs. B. T. Jeurgens, and Mrs. W. H. Gott, all of Muskogee. === "Granite Enterprise" - Greer County, Oklahoma - Aug 18 1948 Mrs. Walter V.

Contributor: Caroline DeBiasi - cdbrc@aol.com === "London Times" - England - Aug 10 1957 Lady Wentworth, Breeder of Arab Horses Baroness Wentworth died in hospital at Crawley, Sussex, on Thursday night at the age of 84. As a leading breeder of Arab horses and as a writer of books on breeding, Lady Wentworth carried on the tradition of the Crabbet stud which had been built up by her father and mother. In her independence of mind, her eccentricities, her artistic pursuits, and her stormy domestic relations she reflected her ancestry -- both her father, Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, the traveller and poet, and her maternal great-grandfather, Lord Byron. Judith Anne Dorothea Blunt-Lytton, Baroness Wentworth, as sixteenth holder of the peerage, was the only daughter of Wilfrid Scawen Blunt and Lady Anne King-Noel, who as a child of the Earl of Lovelace was a granddaughter of Lord Byron, the poet. In youth she was a society beauty and her appearance made a strong impression on Burne-Jones, for some of whose last studies she sat. "She gives me the impression," he said, "of perfect beauty combined with the speed and lightness of foot of some wild creature." In 1899 she married Neville Stephen Lytton, son of the second [actually first] Earl of Lytton. The marriage took place in Cairo. The bride was given away by Lord Cromer, the Resident, who to the Queen's inquiry about the ceremony sent the laconic reply, "Marriage duly performed." She later became estranged first from her father with whom she had differences of opinion about the management of the Crabbet estates, and afterwards from her husband, from whom she was divorced in 1923. Her mother succeeded to the Barony of Wentworth a few months before her death in 1917, when it devolved by special remainder on Judith Blunt-Lytton. The new Lady Wentworth lived for the rest of her life at Crabbet Park in the grounds of which her father was buried. She inherited from her parents the love of the desert and of the horse of the desert, the Arabian, and the "feeling for the desert" never left her. After her mother's death she took over the Crabbet stud which the unfortunate quarrels of her parents had allowed to reach a very low level, and gradually built it up to the dominating position which undoubtedly it holds to-day. There is hardly a stud in this country or abroad which does not owe its existence to one or other of the Crabbet stock. As a breeder she probably had few equals; she combined a voluminous knowledge of pedigree with a keen eye for a horse and with the means to breed on a big scale, and she had a certain flair or instinct which transcends scientific calculations. She was also a competent horse trainer and brought the business of preparing horses for the show ring to a fine art. The foundation of the modern Crabbet stud was undoubtedly the almost legendary Skowronek, a pure bred Arab foaled in Poland, whose sire was hanged in the market place by the revolutionaries of 1917; he was saved from a like fate by being bought for Mr. Walter Winans just before the First World War, after which Lady Wentworth acquired him. From this foundation has flowed the long line of champion Arab sires and mares which have dominated the show ring for many years in almost every country of the world. A character as strong as Lady Wentworth's could hardly keep out of controversy; indeed, like the Biblical warhorse which she loved so much, she probably "smelled the battle from afar" and she was a doughty opponent. Just after the war she became involved in a violent controversy within the Arab Horse Society over the height and size of Arab horses in England. After much acrimony she won her point that there should be no limiting the size of the Arab horses in English shows. At Crabbet she used also to breed dogs and her toy spaniels won innumerable championships. In later years she gave an increasing share of her time to her painting and her poetry. Among her books are two major works: Thoroughbred Racing Stock and its Ancestors (1938), and The Authentic Arabian Horse and His Descendants (1945). She is survived by her son, the fourth Earl of Lytton, to whom the [Wentworth] title descends, and by her two daughters.

She was 90. Lutyens, whose father was the well-known architect Sir Edwin Lutyens and whose maternal grandfather, the Earl of Lytton, was viceroy of India from 1876-1880, died April 9 in London. The cause of death was not announced in newspaper notices. Although she wrote 13 novels and excelled as an editor, she was most acclaimed for her biographies, including writings on her father's work, her parents' unhappy marriage and her grandfather. She also wrote a biographical series on the Indian religious teacher Krishnamurti, who was a spiritual adviser to her mother, and about art critic and social theorist John Ruskin and his wife Effie. One of her best known biographies, "Millais and the Ruskins," explored John and Effie's relationship with Sir John Everett Millais, the father of Pre- Raphaelite painting. It described the impact of Millais' love for Effie on the Ruskin marriage and its eventual collapse. "You so often have to write the book you want to read," The Daily Telegraph quoted her as having once said. Her autobiography, "To be Young," was published in 1959. Lutyens was born July 31, 1908 and was educated at Queen's College in London and in Sydney, Australia. She began her career as a fiction writer with the 1933 "Forthcoming Marriages," and wrote several novels before World War II. After the war, she wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Esther Wyndham. Although she continued to write novels into the 1970s, she began to focus on writing biographies in the 1960s.
