Page News & Courier, Friday 27 Oct 1922
SKETCH OF ALLEN W. KITE AND A NOBLE FAMILY
Allen W. Kite, of Waynesboro, Va., a native of this county, departed this life Wednesday morning the nineteenth of October, 1922, at the time his wife being away from home... The deceased was the youngest son of Noah and Isabelle Kite. He leaves his devoted wife who was July Ann Dovel, daughter of Adam and Diannah Dovel, and five children: Mrs. Florene Sharp, Craig, Mo., Noah, of Lexington, Va., Edward, of near Waynesboro, Mrs. Rosa Kiblinger, three miles south of Waynesboro being at the home of the deceased; Willie, Arasahol, Boulder, Cal.
... The interment took place at the church cemetery near the home of the deceased.
Allen W. Kite was confirmed to St. Paul's Lutheran church by the Rev. S. Henkel, May 18, 1872 and remained and steadfast in the faith of his church. After his marriage his father sold his farm, one half to Isaac Shuler, his son in law, the other half to the deceased. After the freshnet of 1870 the deceased became disatisfied and moved to Missouri. His father took his part of the farm back and sold it ti Isaac Shuler. The deceased moved to Missouri bought land and remaind there some years, afterwards selling out he moved to Rockbridge county, Va. He remains there some years, then bought land two miles south of Waynesboro, where he spent the remainder of his days.
To Noah and Isabelle Kite were born nine children: Caroline, the oldest married Robert Kite, raised a few miles south of Honeyville, moved to Iowa. They raised a large family and all are prosperous. Oliver married in the west when young, died in Iowa.
Henry married Eliza Graves, lived in Rockingham county, before the Civil War, being a member of a Volunteer company, he was one of the first to get in the war, when the war was over he moved to Missouri and from there to Kansas. He had a large family. Benjamin married Bettie, daughter of John Strole. He was in the war from first to last. Joned Company H, of Page county, 33d Regiment, lived in Kansas and I think died in Oklahoma. He also had a large family. John was quite young when he volunteered in Company H. He fought in the battle of Bull Run, after which he contracted typhoid fever and died. Harvey never married. He belonged to the 2nd Virginia Regiment and fought until the end of the war. He died in Topkea, Kansas, aged 70 some years. Lewis married Eliza Strole, sister of Betty, Benjamin's wife. He served the last couple years of the war, moved to Craig, Mo., and there they both died. Three children were born to them, Amanda Virginia, married Isaac Shuler, raised three children, Vergie, Irenaeus and Mary. Mary married C.W. Louderback, lived to be the mother of four children, then died.
Allen, the subject of this notice, being the youngest. I came across a record at the home of the deceased and by the request of the family will not in part that record. The grandparents of the deceased were Benjamin and Eve Kite, Henry and Eve Pirkey.
The Pirkey family was raised near Port Republic, Va. Born to them were seven girls and four boys. Relates of the family still remain in and around the vicinity. Henry and Eve Pirkey were married September 5, 1797.
This incident I wish to relate will be read with interest by many. Benjamin and Lewis Kite, Jacob Koontz and a Mr. Tharpe were the parties interested. After the war was over the above men were at the Brick church, known as St. Paul's Lutheran church, two miles south of Newport, Page county, attending a singing school. I happened to be on the outside when the trouble started and I will never forget the remark made by Tharpe to Benjamin Kite, a man that had been so loyal to his home and state. He stepped up to Benjamin, denouncing his acts during the war and kept it up from one thing to another. Kite and his brother Lewis were sitting on a log. Tharpe finally said that every dog has his day. Lewis then arose to his feet and grabbed Tharpe and gave him a good shaking and told him the war was over and they wanted to hear no more from him. The noise of the disturbance attracted those inside the church and Jacob Koontz rushed to the door, and asked the cause of the trouble. Whereupon Tharpe said to him "Jacob Koontz, you take those horses back you stole." Jacob raised a brick and if some one would not have then grabbed Kite he, (Tharpe) would never have been able to carry his falsified report to the Yankee's at Rude's Hill which caused the terrible tragedy so well kown to everyone in Page. This very incident caused the death of two brave men as ever lived. Capt. Summers, one of the men who was murdered by the Federals was sitting behind the church at the time and knew nothing of the affair until it wasl all over. When told of the affair he shed tears well knowing that this would bring the wrath of the Federal host upon him.

MR. KNIGHT STRICKEN DEAD IN CORN FIELD
While plowing corn in the hot sun on Monday near his home above Kiblinger’s store in the Marksville district, Fred Knight, an industrious and respected citizen, about forty years of age, succumbed to heart disease, falling as he held the handles of his plow and dying instantly. George Cave, owner of the land, and Samuel Cave, who were working with Mr. Knight rushed to the stricken man to find that the spark of life was gone. Twenty minutes before Mr. Knight had a first attack but after sitting in the shade for a little while declared he was well enough to go on with his work. He died almost as soon as he grasped the plow handles.
Mr. Knight was a stout and healthy man until about a year ago when over-exertion in handling a refractory mule brought on a weakness of the heart that was aggravated as time passed. He was a man of much energy and refused to give up his active habits on account of disease. His death removes a desirable and useful citizen and deprives ten young children of a father’s care and support. The oldest of these children is about fifteen years old and the youngest about eighteen months. He also leaves a widow, formerly Miss Annie Seal, daughter of S.T. Seal, of near Kiblinger’s store. John W. Knight, and wife, parents of the deceased are living near Kiblinger’s store. He is survived by three brothers, Vernon, Harry and E.L. Knight, of the same neighborhood.

JAMES W. LACONIA
Page News & Courier, Tuesday 19 Jan 1926
JAMES W. LACONIA, UNION VETERAN, INSTANTLY KILLED BY TRAIN
James W. Laconia, an industrious and estimable old citizen, who has lived in the vicinity of Luray for forty years or more, was instantly killed a little after eight o'clock Saturday morning when he was struck by an engine and tender, several hundred yards North of the Main Street railroad crossing at Luray. Mr. Laconia's body was actually cut in two at the waist. The first the engineer and fireman knew of the accident was when they saw a section of the mangled body on the track.
There seems to have been no witness to the accident which occurred opposite the belting plant at the Deford tannery, now used as a leather warehouse. At this point there are three parallel railroad tracks the main track being between the two side tracks. Mr. Laconia was killed on the side track next to the leather warehouse. For a few months he has been boarding with his granddaughter, Mrs. Harvey Steed, who lives near the oil tank on the Northern outskirts of Luray. A veteran of the Federal army, he was walking to the courthouse to see about his pension papers when he was killed. Northbound local freight No. 72, D.W. Ramsey, engineer, and Vernon Nauman, fireman, was shifting cars on the track and struck Mr. Laconia.
... It is surmised that Mr. Laconia, who was in his 85th year, became confused or did not hear the engine running. At any rate he stepped from the path between the tracks on to the side track and met his fate. The first persons to see the mangled body were Raymond Kendrick, a Deford tannery foreman and his helpers, who were at a warehouse on the siding to load leather...
A coroner's inquest was held by Coroner Dr. Virgil Hammer the jury bringing in a verdict of accidental death. The scene of this accident is one where a number of persons have met their death from trains. While a man of advanced years Mr. Laconia was still active and alert and not very deaf, and his death under the circumstances was not to be expected. He would have been eighty-five years old in March. His body was taken to the establishment of Undertaker Bradley, the funeral being set for Monday. He was buried in his lot in Green Hill cemetery where with the remains of other members of his family lie two sons, who were killed by trains. The latter were Hubert Laconia, a N. & W. brakeman killed on duty at the Karo lime plant siding in Warren county, and James Laconia, also a N. & W. employee, who met his end at Ingham, this county.
