Murder Account, 1823, Contributed by researcher Martha Richards of Washington State

Village Register, West-Union, Adams County, Ohio Tues. 11 Nov 1823 pg 3:

"MURDER--In our paper of to-day, will be found an advertisement offering 100 dollars reward, for the apprehension of Richard FOWKE, who murdered Henry BALDWIN of Kentucky. A man answering the description of FOWKE, passed through this place last Wednesday evening, in company with a man supposed to be Charles MITCHELL, who was endeavoring to effect the escape of FOWKE, who is his brother-in-law.--They were both on horseback, with a brace of pistols each, and made so short a stay here, that time was not allowed to obtain evidence of his being the murderer. Several persons have since passed through this place in pursuit--MITCHELL, who accompanies him, is a notorious character, and it will be a difficult task to take them, should they be well armed."

"100 Dollars Reward [fragment, completed by transcriber from 25 Nov 1823 issue]---The undersigned will give One Hundred Dollars Reward, with all reasonable charges, for the apprehension and commitment of Richard FOWKE, who on Saturday evening last, wilfully [sic] and deliberately murdered his son, Henry BALDWIN jun. Said FOWKE has for several years resided at Charleston, in Mason county, Kentucky. He is about 5 feet 10 inches high, between 20 and 21 years of age, slender made, round shouldered, dark complexion, fair hair, down look, and possesses a very malignant countenance:--had on when he committed the murder, a gray janes coatee and pantaloons, black fur hat, &c. and has probably taken with him a blue cloth suite of clothes. It is supposed that he will either make for New Orleans, Virginia or Canada. All friends of society are entreated to be on the alert that this foul murderer may be brought to condign punishment. Henry BALDWIN, sen. Mason county Ky. Nov 3 1823."

Accidental Death of William Sutherland, 1826, Contributed by researcher Martha Richards of Washington State

Village Register Newspaper, West Union, Adams County, Ohio,Tues. 10 Jan. 1826 Vol. III #133 pg. 3 Extracted from Ohio Historical Society Microfilm #34944

William SUTHERLAND: We learn by the Maysville Eagle, of the 4th instant that this gentleman in company with part of his family, in a carriage, started on a visit to one of his neighbors on Monday the 2d inst. And in descending a hill the horses became frightened and ran off. Mr. S. in attempting to stop them, was thrown from the carriage, which ran over him, and injured him to such a degree that he died on the Wednesday following. The Eagle further adds, that Mrs. SUTHERLAND, after the horses had ran a considerable distance, "caught the reins of the horses, and by an almost incredible effort of strength for a female, she turned their direction, ran them into the corner of a fence, and extricated herself and little son."

Names of Deceased Maysville Citizens Published in the Daily Republican, 1887

File transcribed and contributed for use in the USGenWeb Archives by Marvin Hall hallm@athenet.net
I found this list published in several issues of the 1887 Maysville Daily Republican. The list was headlined, "OUR CITY'S DEAD, Some of the Prominent People Who Have Gone Before."
"For twenty-five years past a gentleman of this city has kept a register of those of Maysville's citizens who have died. Through his kindness we are permitted to print the list, with the dates of death. An installment of the list will appear in The Daily Republican from day to day until it is completed: I don't have any other information about this list, but offer it for those who may be interested."
