Campbell, Amey L. (McMillan)
A sad death was reported from the Osage community early Tuesday morning, that of Mrs. John Campbell, who died at 10 o'clock Monday night. Mrs. Campbell had been in ill health for five months, and while laboring under a temporary derangement due to her long suffering she took poison on that fatal morning, suffering intensely until death relieved her at 10 o'clock that night. She realized her awful mistake when too late, and begged those around her to save her. Everything possible was done to counteract the effects of the poison, but to no avail. She leaves a bereaved husband and two little children, to whom the heartfelt sympathy of all our people is extended. The funeral took place at Osage cemetery Wednesday afternoon.

A very sad accident befell Jim Cambell[sic] Sunday morning. While attending to a young horse it became angry and kicked Mr. Campbell in the abdomen, causing a severe hurt. The doctor was summoned at once, and Sunday evening he was resting easy and up til Monday morning, when he gradually grew worse until about 1:30 when the end came. It was indeed hard to give him up in this unexpected hour, but the good Lord giveth life and He also taketh life, and He willed that Mr. Campbell should join his band of angels above where there is no suffering , sorrow nor parting. Mr. Campbell had lived in and around this section for forty or fifty years, and a better hearted man could be found no where. He was always ready to lend a helping hand and was the best of husbands and fathers. His friends were as numerous as the sands of the seashore and it is with a sad heart they give him up. He leaves a widow and ten children to mourn his death, three having gone to that better home above. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family in this sad hour. The funeral will take place this (Tuesday) eve in the Borden cemetery at 3 o’clock.

He and his son-in-law were at work together--the old man apparently all right. About 10 o’clock, a.m. they stopped to get a drink of water and rest a little while and went back to work, in a few minutes the old man fell upon his face and before he could be moved into the house was dead.

Geo. Little did himself credit and honor by erecting a handsome marble over the grave [Odd Fellows Rest] of John Campbell--as gallant a Confederate soldier as ever smelt gunpowder. Little is the happiest man in town when he has performed a good action. We must get the inscription on that stone--an original one--and print it, to show how a Confederate soldier remembers a brave comrade.

Mr. John J. Campbell Is Claimed By Death
As announced briefly in last week's Mercury, the remains of Mr. John J. Campbell, former resident of the Osage section, were brought to this city Friday noon for interment in the Osage Cemetery. Mr. Campbell died at the home of his son, Rev. John R. Campbell, Baptist pastor at Hallsville, Texas, where he had made his home for a number of years. The remains were laid to rest in the Osage Cemetery on Friday afternoon, Rev. Boulet of Anderson, Texas, and Rev. W. L. Hightower, local Methodist minister, officiating at the grave. The funeral was largely attended by old time friends of the deceased.
John J. Campbell was born March 20, 1860, at Dancyville, Tenn. He came to Texas at the age of ten years, in 1870, and the remainder of his life was spent in the Lone Star State, practically all of the time a resident of this section up to a few years ago. He was married to Miss Amy McMillan, a daughter of the late Mr. Wm. McMillan, resident of this section, and to this union two sons and a daughter were born. The wife and daughter, Fay, preceded him to the grave a number of years ago. Mr. Campbell was almost a lifelong Methodist, being a member of the original Methodist Church organized many years ago at Osage.
At the time of death he was 72 years old. He was taken ill Dec. 26, 1931. At the time he was living with his sister, Mrs. K. A. Blair of Waller. The nature of his illness was rather puzzling, but he was attacked with terrific pains in his back. Early in March, failing to get any better, he went to the home of his son, Rev. J. R. Campbell, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Hallsville, Texas. He was placed in a hospital at Marshall, Texas, and physicians there announced that he was suffering from internal cancer. On the day of his death there was an eruption from one of his ears and the discharged showed it to be cancer.
Funeral services were first held at the First Methodist Church of Hallsville, by Rev. I. J. Waldon, pastor in charge, assisted by Rev. Fred Handcock, pastor of the Presbyterian Church, and Rev. W. C. Mann, pastor of Mooney Methodist Church.
Active pall bearers were six of Mr. Campbell's nephews, as follows: Messrs. E. D. Blair of Weimar, J. A., Z. W., and B. C. Blair, George and Owen Willis of Houston.
There were many beautiful floral offerings from many sections of the state. Visitors were present from Hallsville, Bellville, Houston, Waller, Burton, Navasota, Glidden, El Campo, Oakland and probably other points. His nearest survivors are his two sons, Rev. John R. Campbell of Hallsville and Prof. Chas. D. Campbell of Burton; a sister, Mrs. K. A. Blair of Waller, and a brother, Mr. F. C. Campbell of the Osage section.
John Campbell lived in this section for many years preceding his death. By occupation he was a farmer. He was a good, honest, fair, square man, one whom his friends and neighbors trusted and loved. He was ever ready to do a favor for friend or neighbor, bore the best of reputation throughout his entire life, and in his passing all feel they've lost one of their nearest and dearest friends.
Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to his bereaved ones.

A negro man by the name of Kern Campbell, was killed near Weimar Sunday night by being run over by one of the west bound trains about 9 o’clock at night. It seems that this poor unfortunate fellow was addicted to drinking, was in town Sunday evening, had been drinking, started home, and must have gone to sleep on the track, at the foot of the heavy grade near here, and was lying in such a position that the engineer could not see what it was till he was right upon him; and could he have seen him no earthly power could have stopped the train coming down the grade like it was. When the train passed over him the engineer said he heard the bones crushing, still could not tell whether it was a man or an animal but thought it was a man. After getting to Weimar reported to the agent, who immediately went to the place, and found the mangled remains of this poor fellow. He was literally crushed to pieces. Had it not been for the head it would been impossible to recognize who is was. No blame can be attached to the railroad. An inquest was held and verdict in accordance with the above facts.

Campbell, Lisan Lula
Miss Lula Campbell died at her home in Borden last Saturday morning after a long and painful illness, being confined to her bed for six months. Miss Lula was truly a patient, submissive sufferer, though suffering agonies she never complained, but often expressed herself as willing to suffer, yea die, if it be God’s will. She seemed to have no fear of death, and conscious of approaching dissolution, she called for all her dear ones to bid them a last farewell, and to ask them to meet her in Heaven. When her young life appeared happiest, and the future seemed full of joy, the reaper came, and
“Ere sin could blight or sorrow fade,
Death came with friendly care,
The open bud to Heaven conveyed,
And bade it blossom there.”
Words cannot express the grief of the loved ones, and human sympathy cannot console them for Lula’s loss. God’s own love and knowledge that she is with Him will alone palliate their sorrow. The family have the sympathy of all. [Interment in Borden Cemetery]

Pete Campbell Killed
An unfortunate and deplorable tragedy was enacted in this city last Saturday night at H. F. Juergens' saloon. At or about the hour of 12, Peter F. Campbell, a well-known brick and rock mason of this city, entered the saloon. Mr. Juergens was playing with a 38-calibre pistol at the time and in a spirit of fun remarked that he would shoot Campbell's hat off his head. Juergens is a fine shot, but probably never will he have cause to be proud of the fact, for, as he fired, the bullet went too low, and instead of only striking the hat, it went through same and ploughed a hole into and through the brain of the unfortunate and inoffensive man. The shot produced a complete paralysis of the body, and in this condition the poor fellow lingered until Monday night about 8:30, when his spirit winged its flight unto its Maker. Mr. Juergens was immediately placed under arrest, and, pending the result of the wounds, was carried to Columbus to jail Sunday afternoon. He was brought before Judge C. T. Hancock for his examining trial Tuesday afternoon, but waived examination and was released under $3000 bond to await the action of the grand jury, which was readily given with Geo. Herder and S. H. Hancock as sureties. Mr. Juergens is deeply affected over the result of the unfortunate affair. It was unintentional on his part to harm a hair of poor Pete's head, and the wounding and death of the poor, unfortunate fellow has almost prostrated him. He had able physicians give the man every attention and comfort, and poor Pete was given a decent burial Tuesday afternoon at the Masonic cemetery. The affair provoked a great deal of criticism in this city where both parties are well-known, and while the fact that both men were friendly and no enmity existed, proving conclusively that it was accidental, still Mr. Juergens' action in carelessly shooting at an inoffensive man to display his marksmanship, has been severely censured, and we do not believe the accused man can blame the public for so thinking. It was an unfortunate, careless, regrettable accident.

WEIMAR LOCAL MATTERS
One of the most deplorable accidents occurred here Saturday night that has caused great feelings of sorrow for all parties concerned. The particulars as can be best learned at this writing are: Mr. Peter Cmpbell, a well known rock mason who has lived in and around this vicinity for many years, walked into Mr. Henry Juergen's saloon between 11 and 12 that night. Mr. Juerens playfuly remarked "Pete, I can shoot your hat off without hurting you," to which the unfortunate man remarked, "you can't do it." Mr. Juerens presented the pistol which went off the ball striking Mr. Campbell directly in the middle of the forehead. A physician was immediately sent for who probed for the ball but has not located it directly at this time. The sufferer is in a very critical condition and it is thought he will die. Mr. Juergens deeply deplores the act and has ordered everything done for the comfort of his wounded friend; has secured the best medical attentions, employed a nurse and insists that every thing must be done to alleviae the sufferings of the unfortunate man.
