CUSTER, Samuel 

Grantsville, Md., Nov. 7, 1887
Mr. Editor: –Your last week’s issue contains the announcement of the death of one of Garrett county’s oldest and most respected citizens, Samuel Custer. One so worthy and well thought and spoken of merits something more than the mere facts of death, its date and his age. He was born August 30, 1818 on Mount Nebo, in Grantsville district, where he lived all the days of his life, and where it came to a ripened and honorable end. A tiller of his beautiful and kindly acres throughout his many years of manhood, and so attached to them that he scarcely ever spent a day or night elsewhere. He was one of the eight sons of Emmanuel Custer (who died in 1829) and the last survivor of the number. In middle life he married Lydia Durst, sister of commissioner-elect M. Durst, whom he leaves as his widow; also a number of grown children. He was a good citizen and lived up to the laws, and the requirements of society – never gave offense to anyone. If he had an enemy in the world he was so without cause. A gentleman of the plain old Maryland stamp, hence my respect and long friendship for him. He came from the old Whig stock, and carefully followed the paths that its logical teachings carried him. Never a juror, witness or suitor in any court. Samuel Custer was first cousin to the father of Gen. Geo. A. Custer, with some of his facial features, but no two persons of the same blood could be more unlike in their moral nature. The one all soldier, and the other as amiable as human nature can be moulded into. Friendship.

Hit-and-Run Victim Dies in Frostburg
Henry Cutter, Sr., Fourth Member of Family to be Killed in Accident.
The fourth member of his family to meet death by accident in the past five years, Henry Cutter, Sr., 63 year old blacksmith of Knepp's Meadow, this county, died at 11:30 last night in Miners' Hospital, Frostburg, after having been struck by a hit-and-run driver while walking on the highway near the Gilmore bridge. Cutter was evidently struck by a car traveling at terrific speed as he suffered a broken back, a fractured left leg and the shattering of several ribs.  Dr. J. C. Cobey, of Frostburg, who attended Cutter after he had been brought to the hospital by James Livingston and Joseph McKenzie, of Gilmore, said that Cutter had apparently been struck from the rear.  He never regained consciousness.
At State Police headquarters it was said today that Officers W. B.  Chapelle and Edward Haddaway, who were summoned when Cutter was found, were still working on the apprehension of the driver and expected to have him in custody today. So great was the impact that a bumper was torn from the car, a clue which the State Police expect to be of aid in the arrest of the driver.  Its was also said that the license number of the machine had been obtained.  County investigator Terrence J. Boyle is assisting in the investigation. Mr. Cutter is survived by his wife, Jean Cutter, two sons, Taylor and Walter Cutter and one daughter, Miss Mabel Cutter.  Joseph Cutter, Baltimore, a brother, and Mrs. Julia Fisher, Shaft; Mrs. Barbara Johnson, Gilmore, and Mrs. Caroline Inskeep, Lonaconing, sisters, also survive.
The funeral will be held from the home of his son Walter Cutter, Lonaconing, Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
