Milligan Q. "Bill" Dishner

KINGSPORT - Milligan Q. "Bill" Dishner of Kingsport passed away peacefully early Sunday morning, (April 1, 2007) at Asbury Place at Baysmont.

Born in Scott County, Va., on March 16, 1915, Mr. Dishner was the son of John William Dishner and Cora Alice Fickel Dishner. As a young man, he spent much of his time working on the family farm and, following his retirement years later, he purchased acreage in the Church Hill area, built a small house and barn, purchased a tractor, and spent countless hours raising vegetables for his family and neighbors.

Mr. Dishner moved to Kingsport as a young man in his early 20s to work at the Mead Corporation.

After serving as the president of the union there, he was hired as a union representative by the United Mine Workers, District 50, United Construction Workers, where he worked for many years as a union organizer and negotiator.

During his work life, Mr. Dishner spent considerable time away from his home in Kingsport in support of textile workers in North and South Carolina, chemical workers in Louisiana, and industrial workers in Alabama, Ohio, and Indiana.

Family and friends knew him as a very wise, hard-working individual, who had a delightful and rather dry sense of humor. In his later years, he was a very quiet and thoughtful individual who enjoyed reminiscing about his long and rewarding life. He was especially proud of his work in support of working men and women.

A long-time member of the First Christian Church in Kingsport, Mr. Dishner was more recently a member of the Litz Manor Baptist Church.

Benny L. Dooley

Benny L. Dooley, 57, Gate City, VA left this walk of life May 29, 2011 surrounded by his loving family to be with his Lord in his eternal home.

Benny was a wonderful husband, daddy, and papaw. He loved his children dearly and they cherished him. His grandchildren brought so much joy to his life, and their papaw was a very special person to them.

He was a member of Valley View Church in Dungannon , VA where he served as Deacon for many years. He was a great worker in the church and was faithful until his illness kept him from going. He loved his church family. His destiny was to make Heaven his home. He was never ashamed to witness for the Lord where ever he was and leaves behind a great testimony.

As a lifetime member of the Scott County Life Saving Crew where he enjoyed running rescue calls and trying to help other people, it saddened him when he was no longer able to go. He was always willing to help anyone if he could.

He had a great passion for deer hunting and just walking in the woods looking at all the wonders God had made. He has said there was something special about being in the woods right before dawn and listening to the stillness. This was his special time to talk to the Lord and feel so near to him.

Benny retired from Quebecor printing after 28 years of service due to health reasons.

He was preceded in death by his father, Thurman Dooley; mother, Rose Mary Dooley Webb; and brothers, James Dooley and Jack Dooley.

Benny was a blessing and a great inspiration to his family and friends. He was the cornerstone of his family, who loved him so much. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

The family will receive friends from 6-8 p.m. , Tuesday, May 31, 2011 at the Gate City Funeral Home and other times at the residence.

JAMES M. DOUGHERTY OF THE VICINITY OF NICKELSVILLE, DEPARTED THIS LIFE MARCH THE 3RD 1883,
AGES THIRTY-SEVEN YEARS:

     In referring to the dead, men generally pass over their defects, and dwell on their virtues. This trait of our nature is well becoming poor passengers of time as they hasten on to their own destination.

     In the case of Brother Dougherty, I am not aware of many, if any defects in his character. From a boy he was ever the same, honest and truthful, kind and affectionate,-- loved by all.

     About fourteen years ago he professed religion. Since then he lived a devoted christian (sic), never evading any of the duties assigned by the church upon him, being at the time of his death the Class-Leader of the "Sugar Tree Church", and Sabbeth (sic) school Superintendent.

     He was a man of excellent sense; one of the men who compose the pillars of society in the home life of a moral community; one of the few that when death removes is missed, and at the same time hard to realize that they are gone.

     The M.E. Church has lost in the death of James M. Dougherty, a true friend and supporter of her Doctrines. He attached himself to the church during the administrations of the late James W. Adams, at a time when the church was passing through the prejudices and oppositions that has made its history prominently connected with the great events of the last forty years. Friend Dougherty desired to live to see the day when the great family of Methodist would be again housed in one universal family. 

     One thing he lived to partly see completed, which was a house for his class to worship in. 
Amoungst
(sic) the last work he did was on that house, and as it stands none of us ever see it without connecting in mind the memory of him that did so much to build it.

     In life he desired that "his last moments should be his happiest." Sure enough, when that hour did come, it found him ready, and said "it was the happiest hour he had ever experienced." When his uncle, Dr. A.B. McConnell made known to him that he was dying, he said – "if this be death, it is sweet!"

     He leaves a widow and four children, one of them by his first wife (a daughter of Benjamin Harris of this County) who died some eight years ago, in the Christian faith. To this little boy he enjoined upon him the importance of "living right", and by all means to never make a drunkard!

     His last wife is a daughter of Wm G. McConnell of Valley Creek. To her these simple lines are not needed to awaken the memory of the departed one. But for his little ones let them be the tribute of one who intimately knew their father, and who among thousands of men found no truer friend personally or a more devout supporter for the right, than our deceased brother.

     The funeral of this good man will be preaced at the Sugar Tree Church on Sunday next by Revs. A. H. Ingle and N. Burkhart

Locomotive Drags Veteran's Truck About 61 Feet

---------------------------------------------------------------

Gate City , Va. - (Spl.) Paul R. Dougherty, 31, Route 1, Gate City, Mead Corporation guard, was killed instantly when he was struck by a Southern Railway freight near Daniel Boone Yard about 1:35 p.m. Tuesday [ March 1, 1949 ], State Trooper C. G. Cunningham said.

Dougherty was believed crossing the tracks on a private crossing en route to his job at Kingsport . He was in a 1936-model Ford pickup truck and had been to the home of his father-in-law, W. M. Darnell, who lives within sight of the accident, near Lancaster Church , Cunningham said.

Dr. G. C. Honeycutt, Scott County coroner, pronounced Dougherty dead when he arrived at the scene. The body was removed to McConnell Funeral Home here.

-- Dragged 61 Feet --

Cunningham said the truck was dragged approximately 61 feet and was nearly demolished. Dougherty's body was hanging out of the truck, and he had suffered a crushed skull and a broken arm. The trooper said there was clear visibility of the track. The accident happened just off U. S. Routes 58 and 23.

Mead Corporation personnel said Dougherty had been with the firm almost a year. A former soldier, he served three years in the states and was a military policeman before his discharge. He was to have reported for work at Mead at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

A son of N. W. Dougherty, of Midway, he is survived by his widow, the former Emma Sue Darnell and two sons, Roger 2, and Danny 4.

-- No Witnesses --

No eyewitnesses to the accident had been reported Tuesday night. Appalachian Division headquarters of the Southern Railway office in Bristol could not supply the name of the engineer, who was reported to have stopped the train and helped to remove Dougherty's body.

They said the railroad would probably start an investigation of the accident Wednesday or earlier, but Superintendent T. R. Goode could not be reached for comment. The coal-burner freight was reported traveling toward Appalachia .

Funeral arrangements will be given by McConnell's.
