Assassinated. - Cecil Crutchfield, 16 year old son of Mr. A. A. Crutchfield, was shot through the head and instantly killed at a dance at the old cheese factory, between Ottenheim and Kriser,
between sun down and dark Sunday evening.  There were a number of persons in the house at the time but no-body has been
found who saw the shot fired, or will admit that he knows who fired it.  Judge James P. Bailey, County Attorney Harvey Helm and Deputy Sherriff George
T. Wood spent all of yesterday in the section the assassination occurred, but no arrest had been mad up to the hour of going to press. The murder is a most dastardly orfe
and no means nor trouble will be spared in the effort to bring the guilty party or parties to justice.  Young Crutchfield was a quiet, good boy and his untimely death is deeply deplored.

Friday, August 14, 1908 - Interior Journal  


From a mortal framework, never robust, and at last made uninhabitable by age and illness, the soul of W. T. B. White was set free on the afternoon of Aug. 5th 1908.
He was of a deeply religious nature. He had the martyr spirit of those who suffered death by torture rather than deny what they considered truth. He had been a Baptist since
boyhood and was devoted to the interests of that church. He was a man of the strictest integrity and morality. Truly that noblest work of God- an honest man. He leaves a devoted wife, who spared
not her feeble strength in the endeavor to render his last years comfortable.
Six children and 11 grandchildren, also an aged brother to mourn the loss of one who was never false to himself or his friends.
