Orleans Progress (March 19, 1896) Article
The death last week if Uncle Tommy Porter, removed from our midst one of the pioneers of our county. Past the three score and ten years, the biblical age allotted to mankind nearly all of them had been spent in our county and the last half a century had been passes as a resident of this township. He was intimately acquainted with all our people. His rugged honesty, unswerving fidelity to his ideas of principle and right, won for him respect. He despised dishonesty, trickery and chicanery of any kind and never hesitated to express his supreme contempt for such traits in language that could not be misconstrued. He was a man who kept himself well informed on all issues of the day and watched the records of our public men with hawk like scrutiny.

Orleans Progress (March 26, 1896) In Memoriam
The Orange County Bar at a meeting held on tuesday afternoon, presented a memorial tribute to the memory of Judge M. S. Mavity, deceased, as follows:
The Committee appointed by the Court to prepare a memorial tribute to the memory of Judge Milton S. Mavity, a member of this Bar, respectfully submitted the following:
Judge Mavity was born March 9th, 1833 in Ripley County, Indiana and died at his home in Paoli.
He was a graduate of the Cincinnati Law School; was twice the Prosecuting Attorney of the Circuit, and was Judge of the Court of Common Pleas.
Not to the offices, wherein he was singularly able, fearless and faithful, not to the honors, which he bore in meekness, is this tribute due.
The keen intellect, the rich experience, the deliberate judgment, the kind and cheerful spirit which were ever present in our intercourse with him, marked him as a lawyer whose length of years added sunshine and strength, and whose death brings to this Bar, darkness and sorrow.
Living in the county noted for its orderly and law-abiding people, and its scant litigation, he did much to keep it so. He discouraged lawsuits; he favored compromises, and in the midst of contests pending, he often stilled the rising storm, by thrusting 'twixt combatants the sunshine of his smiling good humor.
The comers to the Court House will miss the form and voice that were to them indices of good cheer; nor find his counter-part as the years go by.
To those who are of his blood and household we give our sympathy and love; and we ask the Court to have this tribute spread of record, and an official copy presented to the family of Judge Mavity.

Orleans Progress (April 9, 1896) Obituary
Thomas Baxter Walker was born in Gouchland County, Virginia, Dec. 23, 1806. Died April 3, 1896. Aged 89 years, 3 months and 11 days. Having lost his father he removed with his mother, Jane Burton Walker, in 1810 to Shelby County, Ky. About seven years later his mother died, leaving him an orphan at 11 years of age. After living two years with an aunt and one year with a brother-in-law, he went to Shelbyville, Ky., where he worked two years at the saddlers trade. In 1823 he walked to Louisville, then a small village, where he apprenticed himself for four years to finish learning the trade of a saddler. After three years his employer died and left him to his own resources. In 1827 he spent some months in New Albany, Ind. and then went to Browsville, Ky., for one year. Returning to New Albany he began business on his own account. shortly after this a brother-in-law, Alexander McCormick, was drowned, leaving a wife and three children without any means of support. Mr. Walker at once rented a house and began housekeeping with his sister, raising her children, and providing her with a home until her death in 1872 at the good old age of 69 years.
On November 25, 1830 he married Miss Nancy Crane Woodruff, and on November 25, 1832, he, his wife and his sister were baptized in the Ohio River and received into the fellowship of the First Baptist Church of New Albany, by Rev. Seth Woodruff, his wife's father. He was almost immediately elected a Deacon in the church and Superintendent of the Sunday School, which places he filled during his residence in New Albany, some twenty years. At the age of twenty-one he was elected coroner of Floyd County, and in 1845 and 1847 was elected Sheriff of the same county.
In 1853, in connection with Croel Richards, he removed to Orleans, bought out the firm of Bradley & Allen and engaged in the mercantile business. On the death of Mr. Richards on January 1, 1876, he formed a partnership with his son, E. P. Walker, which continued until some six years ago, when failing health compelled him to retire from active business. His mind however remained strong to the last.
On coming to Orleans he cast his lot with the weak Baptist Church that he found here, which was then only one year old. He was soon chosen Deacon and Superintendent of the Sabbath School, and as long as he was physically able to do so, it was his highest ambition to faithfully discharge the duties to the cause of Christ. He was a staunch friend of State, Home and Foreign Missions and Christian education. He has aided by words of encouragement, and also in a more substantial way, quite a number of young men who were just starting in the ministry.
His own family consisted of eleven children, eight of whom lived to be grown. His sons, Maj. Thomas W. Walker, of the U.S. Army, and William S. Walker, of Colorado Springs, having died a few years past, and his daughter, Mrs. Sarah J. Harkness, of Philadelphia, only a few days ago passed to her reward. Only four children survive him, Mrs. Mary A. Shindler, Mrs. Nancy C. Reed, of this city; Mrs. J. K. Howard of Livonia, and E. F. Walker, of Deland, Florida.
His wife, Nancy C. Walker, died February 15, 1873. On august 29, 1877, he was again married to Mrs. Margaret Park, who was call away some six years later. Submitted by Tom Agan.

MAY, George W. Dr., Orleans Progress (May 14, 1896) Death Notice
The death of Dr. George W. May last week removed from our midst a clever gentleman, and a good citizen. A man possessed of all the attributes of noble manhood. He made friends and held them by his supreme good fellowship and unswerving loyalty to his convictions. He knew no principle but right, no creed but justice, and gauged his opinions of a man's worth by this standard. Those who knew him best loved him, and among his associates his opinions were always taken as final.
Twelve years ago he cast his lot among us and by his upright acts aided by his superior learning and his gentlemanly bearing built up a lucrative practice. He took a prominent part in politics and was thoroughly posted on the issues of the day. He hesitated not a moment to condemn the acts of public men of his party and placed his stamp of disapproval on his ballot. He detested dirty politics and always advocated and encouraged clean, honorable warfare, and was ready to bestow upon the successful candidate the wreath of an honorable victory.
He was a devote Christian of the type that makes a community better, and the record of his daily life is spotted with deeds of charity. Almost his last words, as the watchers at the bedside, who had noted the appearance of the death angel, took the rest from under him and laid him down, were, "Let us pray." Truly a good man has gone to his reward and the sorrowing friends and relatives certainly have the assurance that he is heir to a place at the right hand of God and nothing can rob him of his inheritance.

ELLIOTT, Sarah J., Orleans Progress (June 18, 1896) Death Notice
Mrs. Sarah J. Elliott, wife of Ephiram Elliott, died last Saturday evening at 5 o'clock, after weeks and months from cancerous affection that extended over her entire system. She was the daughter of Zachariah and Matilda Burton and was born July 23, 1846.
Her early life was spent at their pleasant country home about hour miles northwest of town where she grew into bright young womanhood, shedding a ray of sunshine over that happy home. No dark cloud of trouble overcast her pathway and her bright sunny disposition made her a favorite among her acquaintances. About ten years ago she was married to Ephriam Elliott, a wealth and enterprising farmer, and assumed the care of his household affairs with the same cheerful disposition that had characterized her home life.
They lived happily and no thought of the dread disease that was slowly fastening its hold upon her entered her mind. About eighteen months ago the cancer made its first appearance on her right breast and after six months of patient suffering she consented to have it removed. The operation was, apparently, most successfully preformed by a prominent Louisville surgeon, the flesh being all removed from the right breast and the bones scraped. From this operation she recovered in time, and had, it seemed, regained her usual health. But it was all a delusion. Her health again became impaired and she sought the sunny southland going to Texas in the vain hope that the mild gulf breezes might prove beneficial. But the death angel had marked her for his own and his imprint was plainly visible. She hastened home only to be taken down with the dreaded disease that had permeated every part of her body.
Her sufferings were intense, but she bore them with a christian fortitude, retaining consciousness until a day or two preceding her death. She was a good christian woman, "doing unto others as she would have others do unto her," and trying as best she could to build up an inheritance in God's bright kingdom. The memory of her noble acts toward others will live after her, and will be cherished by all who knew her.
The funeral services were conducted at the Liberty Church by Eld. Howard after which the remains were laid to rest in that beautiful city of the dead to await the resurrection morn. She leaves three brother and two sisters and a host of relatives, who with her husband have the sympathy of the entire community. Submitted by Tom Agan.

FLICK, Thomas C., Springs Valley Herald (January 14, 1915) News Article
First Fatal Accident on the Electric Line When Thos. Flick Was Killed, Saturday Night
Last Saturday evening as the Street car due here at 5 minutes to 8:00 was crossing the little culvert near the French Lick depot the passengers felt a distinct jar and the car came to an abrupt stop. Harry Robbins, the motorman, announced that he had run over a man and backed the car back to the culvert where it was discovered that the dead man was Thomas Flick, a well to do farmer of near Cane Creek Church southeast of this city. The fact was reported to the coroner, Dr. Boyd of West Baden and about 9:00 o'clock the mangled body was taken to Ritter's undertaking establishment. The body was almost cut or torn in two at the hips, one leg broken and the head crushed. The face and other parts of the body seemed to be free of injury. The body was prepared for burial and friends arrived and took it to his home the same night. Flick's pocketbook containing $16.00 was found in hip pocket and a small purse containing a small amount of change.
Flick had come up on the Southern train Saturday forenoon so it is said and was soon full of liquor, as was his habit whenever in town and we understand was locked up in the afternoon by the West Baden marshal, who turned him out in time for him to catch the evening train home. This train goes at 6:50 which is after dark now. Flick evidently started to French Lick, walking the electric car track. He had to cross a trestle over the creek which he must have accomplished but when he struck the little culvert it is supposed that he stepped through between the ties which are wide apart and fell. Whether he was unconscious or billed by the fall will never be known. He was struck by the car about 7:50 and the car had passed over this spot on its way to West Baden only about 15 minutes before. His hat and a set of false teeth were found about 30 feet north of where the body lay.
It was a ghastly affair and was the first accident ever happening on this line. The motorman claims that he did not see Flick until he was almost on him, as he was laying on the track with his head toward the car and seemed to have his legs down through the ties.

Springs Valley Herald (January 14, 1915) News Article
T. C. Flick, whose home was 3 miles north of Elon met death suddenly, early last Saturday night, on the electric car line between French Lick and West Baden. As the car came south it passed over Mr. Flick's body, disemboweling him. Some persons think he was already dead when struck by the car, as no indications of life were manifested at the time of the accident. Others think he was instantly killed by the car. Mr. Flick, thought a good citizen and a splendid neighbor, was a victim of strong drink and was under the influence at the time of his death. We extend our sympathy to his bereaved companion and children. Submitted by Tom Agan.

WARREN,Charles F. Progress - Examiner Orange Co., IN
There is always a sorrow that comes with the departure of a friend of long standing; and greater is the sorrow at the parting of a Companion, a Father and a Brother. But greater than our sorrow must be our joy in believing that the one from whom we are so separated in Death, goes to enter into a New Life - a life of peace, and rest and joy eternal.
With this feeling, we his friends and relatives have gathered today to pay our respects in a parting tribute of Love to this Companion, Brother, and Friend.
CHARLES F. WARREN who, as the son of Henry Franklin Warren and Sarah E. Cornwell, was born in Washington county, Indiana, October 16, 1883, coming with his parents to this (Orange) county when quite young, and growing to manhood in this vicinity. Following the death of his parents here when he was yet young, he became a self-supporting personage, likeable, industrious, and energetic.
On October 6, 1906, he was united in marriage to Miss Onie McKinney of Washington county, and into their home was born five children. Of this family, the Mother and Companion, with three of the children are now deceased.
On December 25, 1918, Charlie was again married to Mrs. Clara Bronson, of Washington county, who now survives. With this bereaved Companion, there remains one daughter, Mrs. Tommie Whiteman, and one son, Cyrus P. Warren, both of New Albany, and two step-sons, Alva and Noble Bronson who were near and dear to him, 8 grandchildren, 1 step grandaughte who was as a grandchild, all residing in or near New Albany. Of his parental family there are two brothers, John and Vallie Warren, of Paoli, and Mrs. Effie Strange of Orleans.
For a number of years he resided at and was employed at Salem, but for the past several years he has resided in New Albany, Indiana, where he was well and favorably known by his employers, neighbors and friends; and here his absence and his genial smile and greeting will be missed by those who were so accustomed to his daily greeting. His passing came at his home at 9 A.M. on Tuesday, October 27, 1942, at the age of 59 years and 11 days, at the call of 'Him who doeth all things well' and we who mourn his going can only wait that day of glad reunion in that land beyond the grave.
So has his life work ended here on earth. So is he remembered by those who knew him - remembered for his unswerving fidelity to his friends and loved ones. In that sweet rememberance, may we say of him; "His day has come, not Gone; His sun has risen, not set; His life is now beyond the reach of Death and Change; Not Ended, but Begun."
Card of Thanks
We wish to thank all who in any way assisted in our bereavement in the loss of a loved one, Charles F. Warren. The pastor, Eld. W. C. Hancock and singers, my God's blessing rest on you.

The last leaf upon the tree
In the spring let them smile, as I do now
At the old forsaken bough where I cling.
And so her life has been a mosaic of joy and sadness and her relatives and friends have been shining jewels along the way.
On September 20, 1916, she was married to William Harrison Beatty and this union was blessed with the birth of one son, William Harrison Beatty, Jr. Her life was also enriched by the birth of three grandchildren, William H. Beatty III, Charles T. Beatty, and Anna (Beatty) Shearer, as well as one great-granddaughter, Emily Shearer. Her husband passed away in 1956, her son in 1986, and her oldest grandson in 1987.
Having been reared in a Christian home, she joined the South Liberty Church of Christ at an early age. In December 1918 she transferred her membership to the First Christian Church of French Lick. She continued to be active in her community as long as health permitted. She was a member of the French Lick Literary Club, a charter member of A.C. Chapter PEO Sisterhood, the Loyal Workers class of Beechwood Christian Church, and the Melton Public Library Board.
As the years passed, it became necessary for Aunt Cloe to move to the Kennedy Living Center in Martinsville, Indiana. On October 28, she just went to sleep, for she had lived almost a century. Survivors include her daughter-in-law, two grandchildren, one great-granddaughter, and several nieces and nephews.
Years are fleeting and a brief history of a great life is so soon written on paper, but the influence and example of the life of Cloe Anna Beatty will last throughout Eternity and the world is a better place because she lived, worked, loved, and now is at peace.
Thank You The family of Cloe Anna Beatty would like to express their appreciation for the flowers, to the pallbearers, Rev. Rex Russell, Brosmer-Drabing Funeral Home, and for the many kindnesses shown to us during her recent death.
