Laidley E. Douthitt

 

This community was thoroughly saddened this morning over the announcement of the death of Laidley E> Douthitt, which occurred at 7:30 a.m..  On account of his extended and distressing illness the event was not unexpected, still its announcement cast a pall over, and caused genuine sorrow in the whole community.

He returned to New Castle and entered the law firm of Moody and Douthitt.  He began at once the active duties of his profession and though seriously handicapped with increasing illness he struggled on in his profession.  By January 1, 1927, disease had made such inroads upon his strength, and threatened such dire results to his health, that he was compelled to desist from further endeavor of any kind. 

 

While living in Washington he was married to Miss Meda Tillman, of Jackson, TN, who with a little son, two years of age survives him.  He is also survived by his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. S. T. Douthitt, now of Lexington; and his sister: Mrs. O. C. Shannon of this place.

He had gone to Lockport with a party of Smithfield boys who had souight relief from the weather by going to the beach at that point on the river.  Griffin started walking on the dam and the current ripped him up.

 

The body was recovered at 8:30 p.m. Sunday when a fisherman dragging the bottom with a large hook located it fifty yards from the dam in the center of the river.  Coroner D. L. Ricketts, Eminence, was called and pronounced death due to accidental drowning.

Wade Griffin

 

A coroner’s inquest, held Saturday in the courthouse in New Castle, in an effort to learn something about the death of Wade Griffin, New Castle, Negro, who was in his cabin when it burned Monday night a week ago.

 

County Attorney James Thomas summoned practically every Negro in New Castle in an effort to learn something about the affair.  There had been a great deal of talk going the rounds on the streets relative to Griffin being killed and then the house burned to hide the crime.  

 

Coroner D. L. Ricketts had made a thorough investigation of the bnody and the evidence to be had.  He had received assistance from New Castle physicians in examining the body, but it was too badly burned to determine anything definite.

 

So Griffin is dead, and that’s all any of us know now.
