Park, Ezra
Butler Daily Democrat - Once more it is our province to recorded a bloody deed in Bates county, and this time it is where the unfortunate victim meets his death at the hands of his brother.
It is well to say in the beginning before giving the details that the man who did the shooting is Luther D. Park, formerly an inmate of the Nevada insane asylum, but who escaped several years.  The superintendent at that time to permit him to remain at home until he should show some disposition to do harm, which was done until too late to prevent this awful occurrence.
Considerable excitement was caused in this city on Sabbath morning by the arrival of John D. Woody, of Charlotte township, having in custody, Luther D. Park, who was delivered to Sheriff Colver on the charge of murder and placed in jail for safe keeping.
Jefferson Park had three sons, all grown, who worked with him on his farm.  Luther is about 35 years of age and Ezra about 30. They had been plowing and planting corn during the past week and the horses were resting over Sunday.
One account said Luther wanted to drive one of the horses to some place in the country to which Ezra objected.  But as near as we can ascertain, the following is nearly a correct version.
Ezra and Luther Park were engaged in conversation on their father’s farm 8 miles north west of Butler about 7 o’clock, a.m. Sunday about a house that Era wanted to drive, he and his sister, Lydia intending to visit a friend near Butler, Luther said ‘you cannot drive the horse.” But Ezra got ready, went to the stable, harnessed the horse, and, about this time, Luther seized his old musket and started to the stable about 150 yards from the house.  His mother saw him and called to the father, who started after him, begging him to come back, not to be so rash, that there was no earthy use for such conduct, etc.  Luther still passed on, with the father following, and entered the stable and, with gun in one hand, he unharnessed the horse with the other, Ezra talking to him the while and saying ‘I will have you arrested for such conduct”, and Luther replying, “Yes, and I will put you on your cooling board.”
Ezra then came out of the stable, met his father and sister, who stood just a few feet from the stable door.  His father said: “Ezra don’t take the horse; just drop the matter if so displeases Luther; but you harness the mare and take her.”  He entered the stable with a curry comb in his had and possibly curried the mare; and as he stepped to the feed door to get the harness, Luther confronted him with the musket and fired the shot that sent his brother Ezra to eternity.
The father and sister, hearing the report went toward the door, when Ezra came outside and fell against the stable.  His sister  ran to him, when he said, “Lydia, he has killed me.”  She said, “Dear brother, are you prepared to die?” His head seemed to nod, but he only gasped and was dead.
The father rushed inside and found Luther standing there with gun in hand.  He jerked it from him, saying, “You have killed your brother.”  Luther threw his hand back as if feeling for a weapon and threatened his father, but the later drew the club end of the gun over him and told him to get out, which he did.
The grief stricken father and heart broken mother and sister then bent over Ezra’s lifeless form and it was a scene of sorrow that beggars description.-- The Adrian Journal, May 3, 1895, Page 8 column 3, Death

Smith, John Jay
Died, at the residence of his son, A J., in this city on the 20th inst, John Jay Smith,, age 78 years, 11 months and 14 days.
Deceased was born in Berkshire county, Mass., June 6, 1816, when he was but two years old his mother died, two years later the father with his son and infant daughter moved to Delaware county, Ohio, where the subject of this sketch grew to manhood.
Notwithstanding the difficulties surrounding the path of the young man who sought an education, sixty years ago, deceased proved stronger that the adversities that presented themselves and gained a good education, and until he was thirty years of age devoted his time to teaching, in which profession he proved to be skillful.  At the age of thirty he was married to Miss Deborah Blue, an Ohio lady to this union were  born six children, four boys and two girls, two of whom are with their father in the brighter and better home, the youngest, a little girl having died in June 1859, and Dr. Harvey smith who died on January 6, 1894.  The other four still survive they are as follows: Dr Norman P. Smith, of Paris, Ill., Mrs. Henry Walters, J. C. and A. J. Smith of this county.
Life to the deceased was not one of undisturbed bliss, it was his to scale the rugged mountain tops of adversity, he proved his sturdy qualities and genuine manhood.  On January 15, 1859 he followed his loved companion to the grave, upon him fell the great responsibility of caring for six motherless children, but like the man that he was he kept the family together for eight years, giving them the advantages of an education.
In 1867 he was again married to Miss Martha Livingston, who still survives to mourn his loss.
In March 1869 deceased moved with his family to Bates county and settled on the homestead three miles southeast of this city, here he spent the remaining years of an active life.  Uncle John, as he was called, had as many friends as any man in the county, he was a careful business man and  very successful, having amassed a considerable fortune but he always followed the Golden Rule; if he ever did an injustice to a fellow man it was a mistake in judgment, for he was scrupulously honest never expecting more of a man than he was willing to give in return.  In him the worthy poor had a strong friend.  His early experiences in this state put him to the severest test to use his expression: “I was land poor and badly  in debt,” but he did not know what it was to give u and came from under the financial burden that would have disheartened a man of less energy.
Deceased was not wanting in wit and humor; to the writer he was one talking of his children, to whom he was greatly attached, he said: “My children all belong to the M. E. church but I am the only Christian in the family” this was the way he had of telling that he was a member of the Christian church and had been for years.
In his death the community loses one of its most highly respected citizens, an the family a devoted husband and father. The funeral services were held at Mt. Olivet church on Wednesday morning at 10 o’clock Rev Bell preaching the sermon which was an able one.  A large concourse of friends assembled to pay a last tribute of respect to the one they had known to love.  At the close of the services the remains were tenderly laid to rest in Mt. Olivet cemetery.  The family have the sympathy of friends in this bereavement. -- The Adrian Journal, May 24, 1895, Page 8 column 3, Death

Little Elmer was not well when his mother died and was after her burial taken to the home of his grand parents where willing hands and loving hearts did all that could be done for the little sufferer until death took him to be with his mother in the better land.  The little body was brought back to Altona, where funeral services were conducted, after which it was placed in the Owen’s grave yard beside that of his mother.  The entire community deeply sympathize with the father in this sad bereavement. -- The Adrian Journal, June 14, 1895, Page 8 column 3, Death

McReynolds, Mattie
Died, at the home of her parents five miles west of this city, Thursday night, Oct. 31, 1895, Mattie, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. K. McReynolds.  Deceased was about 22 years of age.
It is sad to say farewell to one in the bloom of youth; and especially so to one whose life was a constant benediction to her family and the community.
Deceased possessed one of the most tranquil dispositions.  In health she was an example worthy of emulation in afflictions she manifested a patient and sweet spirit.
Shall we say that she is dead? No she is living today in the lives and hearts of her associates.  That beautiful disposition; that blessed influence will live on; and the community will be the better for her short but brilliant life.
Funeral services were held from Fairview church Saturday at 10 o’clock, conducted by her pastor, Rev. May, who spoke feelingly of the exemplary life of the deceased.
The large concourse of people that assembled to pay their respects to the memory of the dead, was sufficient proof of the high esteem in which the deceased and her family are held.  The bereaved parents, brothers and sisters have the deep sympathy of the entire community in this their great affliction. -- The Adrian Journal, November 9, 1895, Page 8 column 2, Death

Haas, Noble H.
