BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH - 14 JULY 1922

SERIOUSLY WOUNDED

JOHN MARR OF HIGHLAND, SHOT IN LEG HAS LIMB AMPUTATED

Tuesday, John Marr, of Maxville was brought to Starke suffering from a shot wound in the leg. He was placed in the care of Dr. E. L. BIGGS, who found an amputation of the limb necessary. The amputation was accomplished and Mr. MARR is resting easy at the home of his sister, Mrs. D. L. RIGBY, of this city. How the accident happened we have been unable to learn. An Associated Press dispatch in the Times Union of Wednesday had the following to say:

Starke, July 11

John MARR, section foreman of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad of Maxville, near here, was brought here today suffering from a gunshot wound in his upper thigh which necessitated the amputation of his leg. Although he is in a serious condition he is expected to recover. Nothing could be learned as to how MARR received his wound, and he refused to discuss it in any way. The shooting is said to have occurred at Highland, between here and Maxville early this morning. The sheriff, who went from Starke to the scene after the man was brought here for medical attention, could find no one who admitted any knownledge of the affair. The same silence was maintained by the man's brother who brought him here. MARR is about 25 years old and unmarried.

Later - Mr. MARR died at 4 a.m. Thursday, his death being caused by tetanus and embolism, consequences of the shot wound.

BRADFORD COUNTY TELEGRAPH - 21 JULY 1922

FATAL ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION AT INQUEST

ORONER'S JURY FINDS JOHN MARR DEATH DUE TO ACCIDENT - July 13, County Judge R. A. GREEN impannelled a coroner's jury to inquire to the cause of the shooting, from the effects of which John I. MARR died the same morning. The shooting took place on the night of July 11 on the road between Highland and Maxville. MARR was shot in the thigh and was brought to Starke the same night by J. T. (Runt) REDDISH and R. M. TRACEY and put in the care of Dr. E. L. BIGGS. Dr. BIGGS amputated the leg above the knee, but tetanus and embolism later caused the patients death. Mr. MARR consistantly refused to tell how he came by the wound, insisting that it was an accident and that it was he himself was the only to blame. The witnesses summoned were R. M. TRACEY, J. T. REDDISH, W. E. MARR, and Dr. E. L. BIGGS. The jury was composed of the following citizens: S. R. JOHNS, foreman, W. L. WALL, Jeff J. JOHNS, B. M. DOWLING, J. M. ALVAREZ and A. O. ANDREU.

Mr. TRACEY a druggist of Lawtey, said that about 8:30 o'clock on the night of July 11, John MARR came to him and asked for the loan of his car. The request was granted. A couple of hours later, J. T. REDDISH called him out. he had brought the car back and told him MARR was shot, shot in the leg and that he was to be taken to Dr. BIGGS in Starke for attention. Mr. TRACEY asked how the accident happened, but MARR would not tell him, only saying it was an accident and nobody to be blamed but himself.

W. E. MARR a brother of the deceased said "I don't know anything about the actual shooting, except that Mr. REDDISH came to me on Tuesday afternoon and told me that he acidently shot my brother, John MARR."

J. T. REDDISH testified: On the night that John MARR was shot, about 9:30, I was on the sheet in my work. He said to me, "Get in Runt, and let's take a ride." I said alright and we rode around for a hour or two. He headed toward Highland. I said "Where are we going?" He says, "That's all right, I have always gotten you back." After we left Highlands, I asked, "Where are we going?" and he said, "Let's ride up to Maxville." I supposed we were about two miles or more from Highland towards Maxville, I was driving. He suggested we stop and take a look, so I stopped and cut the motor off, and we got out of the car. During this time he asked me if I had a gun. I said no. He said he did, but there were but two or three balls in it, and he handed it to me and asked me to line them up. In moving the cylinder in and placing the cartridges, the gun was discharged one time, and MARR said he was shot. As quickly as I could get him into the car, I headed for Lawtey and I asked him if he wished to see Dr. BROWN and he told me to carry him to Dr. BIGGS. I suggested to carry him to Mr. TRACEY, as he could be of assistance, so he told me to do so, as it was Mr. TRACEY'S car. The gun appeared to be a 38 calibre and was in my hands at the time of the shooting. Only one shot was fired. When the gun was fired I dropped it and have not seen it since. I went the next morning to look for it but could not find it. No one else was in the car with me. I put him in the car myself.

Dr. E. L. BIGGS said about the wound in MARR'S leg that it was big enough to allow two fingers to be put into it; had apparently been made by a bullet of large calibre; that there were two holes, one made by the bullet and another probably by a piece of shattered bone; also that MARR would only say it was caused by an accident.

The jury gave the following verdict: "John MARR came to his death from a pistol wound inflicted in the lower limb, said pistol being held by J. T. REDDISH, and that it was accidental. So say we all." While cause that led to MARR'S death was very singular, no less remarkable was the fact that the man in whose hand the pistol was that fired the fatal shot, voluntarily admitted it while the man who suffered the injury would not tell how it happened, only that, "it was an accident and no one to blame but myself."

The deceased was 28 years old at his death and a son of J. T. MARR of Highland. He was unmarried and lived at Highland, being a section foreman of the Seaboard Railway. That he was of fine character can be understood from his anxiety to shield his friend from possible blame of his death. Besides his father, he leaves to mourn his untimely departure, four brothers, Owen MARR of Titusville and Edward, Joe and Clarence MARR of Highland; also four sisters, Mrs. D. L. RIGBY and Ella MARR of Starke, Mrs. R. D. LEE of Raiford and Miss Ollie MARR of Highland. The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of all. The interment was at Long Branch Cemetery last Thursday afternoon. Rev. L. W. KICKLITER, of Starke conducting the obsequies.
