LEWIS, David O.

Januray 10, 1872 – May 07, 1927

Lincoln County lost another of her excellent citizens at 10 o'clock Saturday evening. He had been ill for months of an incurable disease and death must have been a sweet relief. During the middle of March he was taken to the Danville and Boyle Conty Hospital for an operation, but it was discovered that it would do him no good, and it was indefinitely postponed. Mr. Lewis was one of the very best citizens the county had, and no man in his section had greater reason to be proud of his standing in his community than he. He stood for the better things of life and his life proved the sincerity of he man. Mr. Lewis lived in Illinois a long time but returned to Kentucky some fifteen years ago and his last days had been spent on his farm in the McCormack's section.

He is survived by his widow Elsie. Mr. Lewis was 55 years old, a devout member of the Christian church and an officer of McCormack's church. The loss of such a man is inestimable and Lincoln County is poorer because of his passing. McCormack's church was crowded Sunday afternoon when his former pastor, Rev. Anderson, now of Berea, preached his funeral and the great throng followed the remains to their last resting place in Buffalo Springs Cemetery.

MAGEE, Joseph "Joe" C.

December 31, 1871 – June 23, 1915

Judge Joseph Magee died at his home in Crab Orchard at about four o'clock Wednesday afternoon after an illness of a few hours. He had been in Stanford for a day or so and on the morning 
of the day he died, returned home on the train. He was ill while here, but had about recovered when he took his departure and was able to walk to his home from the depot. 
Acute indigestion brought about his death. He had not been in the best of health for some time.

Deceased was 43 years old and is survived by his wife, who was a daughter of the late Sam Hardin, and two children, Elizabeth Magee and Lee Thompson Magee, his mother, 
Mrs. Kate Magee, brothers, John, Sam and Harry Magee, and one sister, Mrs. Henry Browning, of the Maywood section. Judge Magee had been a member of the 
Christian church since early youth and was an exceedingly clever and kind-hearted man.

A number of years ago he was chosen police judge of Crab Orchard and he filled that position with credit up to his death. He was a quick, witty official and his 
decisions frequently brought applause because of the justice which they carried and the humorous language in which they were couched.

He was an uncompromising democrat and did valiant service for his party in every election. The writer asked him on Tuesday afternoon who he was for in the various 
State offices: "Anybody suits me," was his quick response, adding that he was for the men who could win easiest in November. Judge Magee knew the political 
game about as well as any man in the county and his diagnosis of any political situation was worth a great deal.

He was a member of the Odd Fellows and that order officiated at his burial in the Crab Orchard cemetery Thursday afternoon when all that was mortal 
of the clever man was laid to rest to await the resurrection morn.

[ Son of John and Catherine "Kate" Carson Magee]
