Rogers, Perry
About 4 o’clock Wednesday afternoon, Perry Rogers committed suicide at his home on south Silver street, near the south bridge, by drinking a pint of whisky and an ounce of carbolic acid. Since living in Paola the past nine years he was a habitual drinker and recently had been drinking more than usual.  The past two years he was employed at Schroeder’s lumber yard and worked until Wednesday morning, when he got a man to take his place and told Mr. Schroeder he would not work that day.  He got some whiskey and an ounce of carbolic acid and went to his home telling his family it was his intention to commit suicide. He wrote several letters to relatives in Missouri, stating that he was tired of living and would kill himself at 12 o’clock noon on that day. The family fearing that he would carry out the threat, after a struggle secured the acid and broke the bottle.  He remained at home until about 3:30 o’clock, when he went up town and got a pint of whisky and an ounce vial of acid. Returning home he set it on the table and went through the house to the back porch, where his family were sitting, and joked with them a few minutes and told them he would go in and take off his shoes.  On going in the house he drank the whisky and then swallowed the acid. With the acid running down over his chin he stepped to the porch and said to the family that he had committed the fatal deed which he had contemplated for years.  He fell to the floor and expired in a few minutes.
For sometime he had been talking of killing himself and Tuesday night he got out of bed, went down stairs and sharpened his pocket knife. Going to his wife’s room, he told her the children were asleep, his knife was sharp, he could go and cut all their throats and would then come and cut her throat and then his own. She got up and remained with him during the rest of the night and dissuaded him from his terrible purpose.
The deceased was 53 years of age. He was born in Indiana, and when a child came to this county with his parents and resided at the old mission, east of where Paola now stands.  His father died and was buried at the mission, and with his mother he went to Crescent Hill. Mo., and later to Adrian.  As a young  man he was studious and for a time he was employed in a drug store and studied pharmacy. In 1880 he was engaged in the drug business at Adrian and afterwards clerked in a dry goods store there.  When at himself he possessed more than average ability. He was gentlemanly in manner and  address and those by whom he was employed spoke well of him.  He was twice married and leaves a son 24 years old by his first wife, who is in the regular army, and 5 sons and 5 daughters by his present wife, the eldest a daughter 18 years of age and the youngest a little boy 3 years of age.  He was always kind and good to his family, and with the exception of a portion which he spent for drink, his earnings went to their support. He leaves them in very poor circumstances. The funeral services, conducted by  Rev. Frank Durham, pastor of the Baptist church, were held from the residence Thursday. The remains were buried in the Paola cemetery. Paola Exc. -- The Adrian Journal, September 15,1905, Page 8 column 4, Death

Black, George
George E., son of W. P. and Minnie w. Black, died at the family home four miles southwest of Adrian on Friday, January 13,1905, after a brief illness from a complication of diseases.
George was born at the home where he died, August 171883, being at the time of his death 21 years, 4 months and 26 days old. All the days of his life were spent in that neighborhood, and so well did he live that he had the respect of every individual in the community.
Under all circumstances he was a gentleman. Wherever he was he always conduced himself in a courteous manner, showing due respect to the rights of others and a proper regard for his own manliness.  He possessed in a large measure the elements of a good citizen and his sudden taking away was a severe shock to his large circle of friends and a great calamity to his parents, brothers and sisters.
We had known George from the time he was a small boy and seen him frequently and as a last tribute to his memory we can say truthfully that he was an exemplary young man, and it was with deep regret that we learned of his death.
Funeral services over the remains were held from the Fairview church on Sunday at 11 o’clock conducted by Rev. Weir. Although he weather was extremely cold the house as filled with mourning friends to pay a tribute of respect to the memory of the dead and to sympathized with the bereaved family.
The body was laid to rest in Crescent Hill cemetery. -- The Adrian Journal, January 20,1905, Page 1 column 3, Death
