RUEBEN BOONE Dies

In the death of W. R. Boone last Thursday night Booneville lost one of its oldest and most outstanding citizens. His health had failing for several years and he had undergone an operation which failed to bring relief.

"Rube" as was familiarly called was the son pf the late Judge B. B. Boone and his wife and was around 70 years of age. His life had been spent here. His father had been prominently connected with the political and legal life of the county in its early days. The Boone family was among the first settlers of Old Tishomingo County. They had a great part in the development of the county before the war and took a prominent part in the war. They are descended from the line of Boones that gave the country the immortal Daniel Boone. The town of Booneville, located about the time of the Civil War, or just after, was name in honor. Of the original family of Judge Boone only one member James N., survives and he is around 80 years of age.

Rube spent his life in newspaper and printing work. He had helped with the older papers of Booneville. He was connected with the old Booneville Pleader, then with the Prentiss Plain-dealer, Booneville Advocate and later with the Booneville Banner. He enjoyed the work and nothing gave him greater pleasure than to be setting type and doing the other necessary work around a printing office. He was kind and likable, always ready to do you a favor and enjoyed his friends.

He is survived by his devoted wife, Mrs. Dra Fails Boone and two sons Bartley and Frank and three daughters, Mrs. Jim Scott, Booneville, Mrs. Clarence Chase, Memphis and Mrs. Cline Hendrick, Shelby, N. C., a brother James N. and numerous relatives.

Funeral services were held at the residence last Friday afternoon and were in charge of Bro. P. F. Luter, pastor of the Methodist Church. There were many beautiful floral offerings attesting to the esteem in which he was held by those who knew and loved him. The body was laid to rest in the Booneville Cemetery.

HORACE BOWDRY AND KITTIE BOWDRY

Mr. and Mrs. Bowdry

The community was shocked to hear Tuesday night of the death of Mrs Kittie Bowdry and the serious wounding of her husband Horace Bowdry, and later of his death also, in a cyclone which destroyed their home near Leonard, Texas, last Tuesday evening.

The storm, from reports formed near their home, thus being the first to feel the fury of the blast. Mrs. Bowdry was killed outright the body being found about a quarter of a mile from the house place. Mr. Bowdry was found among the wreckage not far away. Mr. and Mrs. Bowdry were natives of this county. Mrs. Bowdry being the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Spain and young Bowdry a son of the late Alanzo Bowdry.

They were both esteemable people and their death especially under such awful conditions, is a sad event to their friends and relatives in the county and town.

The whole community will join the Plaindealer in extending condolence to the bereaved relatives with whom we all deeply sympathize in this sad visitation; so sudden in its coming and so fearful in its form.

The remains will be brought home for interment so we are informed.

NATHAN B. BROOKS

Prentiss County's Oldest Citizen Dies

In the death of Nathan B. Brooks last Thursday, Prentiss County lost its oldest citizen. Mr. Brooks was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, 25 July 1831, being at the time of his death well passed 101 years of age.

He enlisted in the Confederate army in June 1861 at Morristown, Tennessee and saw much hard and dangerous service. He served in the Infantry for three years under Captain Gloster and then in the pontoon service with Captain Rickett. He saw much of his fighting in Tennessee, being in the Battle of Murfreesboro and later served four months in a Northern prison. When he was released he hired out for a few months and then started for home; on reaching Nashville he was robbed and then went to Memphis.

He was married with a wife and three children when he entered the army and the wife and children moved away and he was unable to find them; he later married a second time in Memphis; he had three children by this wife; after the death of his second wife he married again; they were the parents of fourteen children, of whom eleven are now living. Since the death of this wife a few years ago, he had lived around with his children and passed away at Walnut in Tippah County. He was a well-known farmer, well digger and carpenter.

Mr. Brooks was a likable man, who made friends of those with whom he came in contact. He took life easy, always looking on the bright side. He was a quiet and unassuming man and attained an age scarcely ever reached. He carried his years well and up to a few months ago, would have passed easily for a man not past 70, During this long life, he saw many of life's hardships and saw the country changed from a wilderness to what it is today. He met the trials and difficulties of life without a murmur. He will be missed by his relatives and the large circle of friends who knew him. He made a good soldier for the "lost cause"; he made a good citizen in a time of peace. All honor to this brave old veteran. His funeral was held at Jumper-town Friday, with his life long friend Br W. A. White conducting the services. A large crowd came to pay a tribute of respect and love.

JOURDAN BROWNING

Valentine's Day Recalls WWII Crash

Memories for Jourdan Browning

This article was written by Lynn West, an associate editor, and appeared in the New Albany Gazette in 1995. It was submitted to the Tishomingo County News by Charles Browning, a nephew, just in time for Valentine's Day.

This past week most people have been thinking about Valentine's Day.

Jourdan Browning's thoughts, however, have gone back to a Valentine's Day 50 years ago, when he was a navigator for a B-17 making bomb runs into Europe and even Hitler's Germany in WWII.

Browning was a part of the air group known as the "Bloody 100th," because of the extensive losses they suffered. The group lost 200 aircraft and 86 percent of its original crew by war's end, so Browning was beating the odds everytime he returned to the East Anglia, England base safely.

And on that Valentine's Day in 1945, the odds were getting worse for Browning; he was only six days away from finally having to bail out of his burning Flying Fortress, watching it crash into the Southern France landscape.

Browning survived, unhurt and ended up back in the air, flying 17 more missions-including over Berlin-before and I snapped it on the back of my harness, at the chest."

There were enough parachutes, but they were manually operated and some of the crew had had to put them on first.

Everyone hesitated to jump, especially when he yanked the hatch open beneath his feet to see the layer of clouds below.

"I had a slight sensation of falling through the air and then I seemed to be hanging in space on my back as the plane moved out of sight," he wrote.

When Browning jumped, it wasn't over quickly. "It took me 10 minutes to fall about 15,000 feet," he said.

He landed in forest and found other crewmen, some of whom had landed looking into the rifle barrels of three Free French: Once the French knew the airmen were American, they took the crew to their homes and fed them, later guiding them to Allied positions amid much cheering, waving, and kissing from local residents.

They eventually went to the crash site: and because the pilot had left the plane on autopilot, it had almost landed itself with comparatively minor damage. Browning was able to get some of his equipment that the Germans had left because they had had to be more concerned about shooting at the approaching Russians on the ground than from the air strike.

After May 1945, he was returned to the United States and given a ground job until the war ended. "I was holding my breath, afraid I would be sent to the Pacific, but I made it," he said, and he returned to his life cates he was one of only two elected for navigator training.

After training he was sent to Thorp Abbott in East Anglia where the 100th operated out of. Soon, he was a navigator for the lead plane.

"We used to lead up to 300 planes and I would think, "300 planes all being led by a boy from Tishomingo, MS," he said. The entire bombing group could include as many as 1,000 planes, and the group often stretched in the air as far as from New Albany to Jackson.

Browning's Flying Fortress was only slightly different from others in that it contained radar equipment and devices to confuse enemy detection. Because of the limited space, his plane carried only 2,000-lb bombs.

"There were 10 in the crew, and later, nine," he said. "There was the pilot, co-pilot, navigator, bombadier and six gunners (later only five), plus the radar on board."

Athough the B- 17 was large, Browning had to crouch on a catwalk only 18 inches wide and work at a low, small plywood table. The aircraft bombed from an altitude of 25,000 feet where temperatures were sometimes as low as 55 degrees below zero, so crews had to wear electrically heated this area.

This Valentine's Day, be thankful for the many men who defended our country during World War II.

DR. J. M. BYNUM

    News of the death of Dr. Joseph M. Bynum at his home in Booneville was received here late last night. He had been in bad health for some time and his death was not wholly unexpected. He was about 65 years old, and was an old resident of Prentiss County moving here from North Carolina, where he was reared.

    He was one of the most energetic, public spirited citizens of this state, and was an industrial promoter of much worth, taking a keen interest in all things looking to the betterment of the social and industrial interest of the county and in business pursuits he was active and enterprising, accumulating considerable property. At Rienzi many years he engaged in merchandising and all through life he was practically interested in agricultural peursuits, operand farms and taking an enthustic interest in livestock. He was a liberal, big-hearted man in all social and neighborly acts and matters, and made a progressive, liberal citizen who was appreciated in the community where he lived.

    He was a Republican in politics, and was for years recognized as one of the leaders of his party in this state. He had but recently been appointed the supervisor of the next census for this district. For many years, he was an active participant in political affairs, and by his radical views created many political enemies in this section, but time erases much of the prejudice, and viewing his life from a social and neighborly standpoint his acquaintances and friends find a great deal to admire and appreciate and to place upon his life the estimate of a most useful citizenship.
