Whereas, It has pleased the Supreme Dictator of the universe, to afflict with death the family of our esteemed Bro. R. D. Duval, therefore be it
Resolved, That we hereby tender the said
brother our sincere condolence in his affliction and remind
him that fortitude in adversity exemplifies one of the
virtues and benefits of our noble order.
A terrible case of brutality has been exhibited by a colored woman of this city—Mary Lindsay. She gave birth to an illegitimate child Sunday last, and in the absence of her mother, wrapped the new-born child in her skirt and placed it under the springs, and left it there till Tuesday morning. When the mother was making up the bed, to her horror, she discovered the child. The officers were called and Tuesday night an inquest was held. The coroner’s jury brought in a verdict of murder in the first degree. A guard was placed at the house and as soon s she is able will be lodged in the county jail.
This is most a atrocious case of infanticide
and nothing can save the girl from severe punishment who
partly through fear of her mother and no doubt ignorance,
committed this crime.
(His marker in Anna City Cemetery reads:
Cornwall Kirkpatrick Died March 30, 1890, Aged
75 Ys., 3 Ms. & 7 Ds.—Darrel Dexter)
