TALBOTT, Roy

Roy Talbott, 24 years old, was shot and killed by his brother, aged 18, yesterday evening while turkey hunting. The accident occurred near St. George, seven miles from this place. The brothers separated after having agreed to meet at a certain place. The younger boy seeing an object moving in the brush shot a load of buck shot in his brother's head. The injured man lived until 12 o'clock last night, and was conscious most of the time. He leaves a wife and one child. The father, an aged man, is prostrated with grief, having lost two sons in railroad accidents and two by typhoid fever previous to this time. Just ten years ago to the very day, two brothers by the name of Pifer were rabbit hunting at almost the identical spot when the younger one was shot and killed by his brother.

PETERSBURG ITEMS - A daughter, of Mr and Mrs D P Taylor, of Medley, aged about eight years, died Mon of diphtheria.

TAYLOR, Clara Lee

Never, perhaps, has our community received a more sudden shock of grief than that which was occasioned by the unexpected death of Clara Lee, daughter of Mr and Mrs D P Taylor, of Medley, who, after a short and very painful illness of diphtheria, departed this life November 21, 1911, aged 8 years, 8 months and 3 days. Clara Lee was one of the brightest and most promising little girls of this community. She always wore a smiling face and her bright and cheery disposition won her many friends. She was the pride of her parents and a joy in the home, but while yet in the bloom and vigor of early childhood, death came so sudden and tore her from their embrace and left their hearts bruised, bleeding and desolate, and into their lives came a sorrow that never can be dispelled. She will be missed, but lightly expresses the sentiment of those who knew her as a daughter, sister, pupil, school-mate or friend. We will sadly miss her in school as she was a studious child and a kind play-mate; not only a vacant desk remains to remind us of her absent form, but by her name on the Roll of Honor, her good work and cheerful companionship, we know that Clara Lee was once with us in school, and a pleasant memory it is to know that she was so good and never tired of trying.
She was
-Taken away in the sweetness of girlhood
  The child of affection and tenderest care;
Destined to bloom but a short time on earth,
  Suffered and died when a flower so fair.
-Gone from the circle of loving ones her,
  That soul of intelligence, winning and sweet
To share and rejoice in a happier sphere
  Where angels are treading the heavenly street.
-But better, perhaps, that the spirit has fled
  And she has been called in her infantile years;
For nothing is sure on the earth that we tread,
  The future is ladened with anguish and tears.
-Murmur not, therefore, O parents bereft,
  For safe is your child in the heavenly fold
The sighs that the bosom so often has heaved
  Can never recall her from pleasures unpaid.
-The dear one you miss in your wanderings here
  Shall meet you again on far brighter shores
For those gone before shall be waiting to greet,
  And welcome the soul that the Savior adores.
Clara Lee's funeral was preached Sunday, December 10, in the Medley M E Church, by Rev. Landstreet from the words of our Savior found in Matt. 10:14: "Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me, for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
He spoke of the Savior taking the most beautiful and most cherished of loved ones from the homes here and planting them in his own, so as to make His kingdom more attractive. And Clara Lee as a shining little star, rejoicing with angels is waiting to welcome us to that home of love.
Her teacher

TAYLOR, Dr. K.

One of Hampshire's oldest and most widely known physicians and one of her prominent citizens passed away when Dr. K. Taylor died at his home, at Slanesville, Thursday night of last week. Dr. Taylor came to this county from Loudoun county, Virginia, during the first decade following the Civil War. Shortly afterward he married a Miss Rannells who, with four sons and two daughters, survives him. He had a very large practice and was regarded as a most successful and skillful physician. Dr. Taylor was a soldier in the Confederate Army, was a member of Pickett's division, and was in that General's famous charge at Gettysburg. He was knocked down by a minie ball near the stone fence, almost at the "high water" mark of the Confederacy and carried the print of the ball on the side of his head to the day of his death. Last summer he attended the great Reunion on the Gettysburg field and in company with friends from this county re-visited and identified the spot where he fell fifty years before. The funeral occurred Sunday and the interment was at Salem Church.
