Killing at Spencerville.
J.J. Young, a prominent and highly respected farmer of the Spencerville
community, was shot and killed Monday afternoon by Will Willburn while the
former was going home in his wagon alone. An old grudge is said to have
been the cause of the killing. Wilburn was arrested by Deputy Sheriff Pink
Anderson and lodged in jail.
The following list is a list of witnesses called on behalf of the State,
prove allegations of the information charging Will Wilburn and W.M.
Hullinger with the murder of J.P. Young. Wilburn was arrested January 5,
1912. During the examining trial on January 11, 1912, both pleaded
not-guilty. Wilburn tried to get out on bail by saying being enclosed in a
jail cell with loud noise was bad on his health since he had lived his life
on the farm. Request denied. The trial began at 9 a.m. March 27, 1912.
Hullinger was acquitted. I believe he had an alibi. Wilburn was found
guilty by all 12 jurors (J.W. Davis - Foreman) and sent to the State
Penitentiary in McAlester, April 6, 1912.
What does AFTER REMOVAL say about this list of people? Is a date
i.e., what do they have in common. Perhaps the title of the table in
this list appears tells us something? Thank you.
I was thinking the same as you were. I kept reading before and after
the pages where the lists were, but it doesn't have any kind of dates.
I'm assuming these people were prominante during the time of the Dancing
Rabbit Creek treaty as the second page of names states they were signers
of the treaty.
There is only about 146 pages to the entire book and about half of the
book is used up listing his sources, which is good, but that doesn't
leave much room for data. The copy write of the book is 1986. The
sources he sited at the end of this chapter covers 2 pages.
I see this notation: "Juzan family genealogies on file in MDAH indicate
that Pierre, the first of the family in the New World, had a military
commission from the French King."
I think there is more value in the references than in the book itself.

Sorry Kate but it is Luthera, the males are on one side of the roster and
the females on the other, and if Luther wasn't listed on this list then he
wasn't on this roster....keeping in mind that this roster only covers the
the very very early 1860's.

Subject: [IP] Waschow/warshaw/
HI: This group helped me greatly with hollingers. I now have
a man named David
Waschow (Warshaw) who first appears in Mississippi in 1826, is naturalized in Adams
Co MS in 1828. He appears in the Census of 1840 in Franklin County Ms and died in
1844. He was close to Lewis Michael Hollinger; he had no children and left his
estate to Hollinger.
Does this name ring a bell with anyone? I know that he spoke
German; he owned land
and was a merchant. Is this a likely Palatine name? Bavarian? any suggestions
would be greatly appreciated. Kate
