DEATH CLAIMS ABNER EGGERS
Abner Eggers was born in Watauga County, North Carolina, May 27 1821 (to Hugh Eggers and Sarah "Sally" Smith) and died April 27* 1910 (Greenup County Kentucky) being 88 years and 11 months old. He was united in marriage to Charlotte Hagerman 21 April 1839. Of this union three children were born. Hugh, died in infancy. Isaac died in December 1863 while wearing the blue. Landrine died Nov. 16, 1910.* (1909)Their mother, Charlotte, died August 27 1845. On December 27, 1847, he was again united in marriage to Lucinda J. Venable. Nine children were born of this union of which three are dead. The surviving six are: Lewis B. of Truitt, (Greenup Co.) Ky., Johile S. of Altomont, Mo., John A. of Heyburn, Idaho, Jas. C. of Afton, Tenn, George W. of Peru, Indiana and Mrs. Sarah Grayson of Mountain City, Tennessee. Mr. Eggers united with the Baptist Church in 1876 and lived up the Christian faith until death. He was a kind husband, a loving father and a man that turned no one away. He was left by his second wife, Lucinda Eggers, Nov. 24, 1902. After a year's lonleyness (sic) at this old home in Johnson Co. Tenn., he decided to visit his children in the West, making his first stop with L.B. at Truitt, Ky., the second stop with Geo. W. at Richmond, Ind. the next with Eliza Brendle, Zionsville, Ind., the next at Manmouth, Ill., the next with J. S., Altomont, Mo., then with N. C. Baird, Roseburg Oregon, then to Dillard, Oregon to John A. Eggers, then to J. C. McCann, Grand Pass Oregon then to Smith Dotson Portland Oregon, and then returning home made the following stops: Altamont, Mo., Richmond, Ind, Greenup, Ky., then to his old home. He sold his farm to his son, J. C. making his home with him until he sold the home. He then made up his mind to make his home with his son L.B. where he spent the last two years of his life. Death was caused by a cancer which ate his nose off.
Our hearts are heavy and sore
We felt so lonely here today
Death has entered our home
And taken dear father away.

It was hard to drink the bitter cup
Though the good Lord knoweth best
It was hard to give our dear father up
When He called him home to rest.

It's hard to do without you father
But God claimed you for his own.
We could but bow our heads and say
Oh God thy will be done.

Oh why did we have to lose him,
Why it was we could not tell
How it makes us long to see him
In that land beyond the skies.

Dear father thou hast left us
And thy loss we deeply feel
But the God who has bereft us;
He can all our sorrows heal.

Never more on Earth we'll meet thee
Since thou art numbered with the dead,
But in heaven we hope to greet thee
Where no farewell tears are shed.

From the "GREENUP REPUBLICAN"
KILLING IN GREENUP
Joe S. Eggers, for several years a constable of Greenup county and at several primaries a candidate for the Republican nomination for Representative, was shot with a pistol Thursday morning near his home on Big White Oak by Tom Jones, a neighbor. He died from the wound about an hour and a half after being wounded.

Jones, the gun user, was trying to make his escape when apprehended by the Sheriffs at Riverton. He had boarded the local freight at some point between Fullerton and Greenup, the officials having been 'tipped" of it, and when found he was trying to conceal himself in a hopper coal car. He was arrested without any trouble. He still possessed the pistol with which he shot his victim. He claimed he was not trying to make a getaway but was on his way to Ashland to see his sister about going on his bond and intended to return and give himself up to the officials.

The trouble which led to the tragedy was a dispute over a division line between their lands, which each claimed included a picnic ground. Jones claims Eggers was cutting wood on his land when he rode up to him and ordered him to stop. He claims Eggers jerked him off his horse and struck him with a stick when then he shot him.
