Hi! JR is the triplet son of Delbert Brown, and David and Leah Chandler Brown were his grandparents. If you are not related, would you be interested in finding a "good home" for them? We would be very grateful for the transfer.

John W. Pigg
Find A Grave Memorial# 7682471

Some of these issues have deep creased lines or missing ink and are difficult to read.

Mountain Echo newspaper, London, KY
Friday 20 December 1878;Page 3, Column 2

We learn that on last Sunday evening quite a serious accident occurred to a son of Mr. Madison Pigg a very highly respected and well-known farmer, living on Raccoon Creek, in this county, about nine miles north of London, the particulars of which, as we learn, are about as following:

On last Sunday evening this young man was returning home from the preaching at the Twin Branch Baptist Church and having a small pistol in his jacket - a habit, we regret very much to say, too many of our mountain boys practice - he began to snap it when it accidently went off in his pocket, the ball taking effect almost half way to the hip and knee of his right leg, ranging down about four ----- and ---iging near the main artery.

He and the family, thinking the wound not a serious one, perceived to
keep it secret; they called no medical assistance until Tuesday, when they summoned Dr. P. A. Faris, who extracted the ball, but it was too late to give permanent relief,

***very difficult to read, in a crease line***

having gotten ----- complications, overcoming ------ ----- -------complication, and he died from the effects of this wound about ten(?) o'clock Wednesday evening.

Young Mr. Pigg was about eighteen years of age and was very much respected by all of his neighbors. This is a sad accident and should be a warning to all careless young men with the habit of carrying concealed weapons.
Mountain Echo newspaper, London, KY
Friday 27 December 1878;Page 3, Column 1


Having noticed in your last issue an account of John Pigg's death, I think it is my duty to give you the history of the case as related to me by Mr. and Mrs. Pigg, their daughters and the patient himself.

John Pigg bought a little pistol with a view of selling it to some other person for a profit and add something to his finances. He had a cartridge hull(sic) that had been shot, filled it with powder and trimmed a bullet to fit and loaded the pistol with this and attempted to shoot it to try his pistol - it would not fire. He was walking along with t in his right breeches pocket, and in some way it was discharged on November 28th.

I visited him on December 14th, about the 16th day after he was shot. They told me that he complained but very little up till 2 or 3 days prior to my visit, having rode a few miles ---- back, chopped wood, walked from home one day, etc.

When I saw him on the 14th his limb was largely swollen, ------ rigors, indicating a large amount(?) of puss(sic) in the deep seated tissues of the thigh. He suffered greatly.

The bullet had entered his thigh at the lower end of his leg and passing downward, lodging about the middle of his thigh ----- of --- the bone. The powder and fire were driven into the bullet hole. I followed the ball with a probe to its destination and made a free incision from the probe to the surface, discharged a large amount of puss(sis), clotted blood and sloughed(sis) muscular tissue, and but a very little hemorrhage.

We applied a light poultice and he slept and rested away. I anticipated extensive sloughing, but hoped it might not reach the seep seated blood vessels. He appeared to do tolerably well till the morning of the 17th, when the slow process of ulceration tapped the fountain of life and ended the scene.

He was a boy of fair intellect and bade fair to make a bright star in society. His loss will be heavily felt by all who knew him. The young are bloomed for the grave; the aged are ripened for the grave, and mankind are marching steadily but surely to this same destination. The great question that should sink into every heart is shall we be ready to meet it?

Lincks Cem ~ Infant Richmond
Hi Mike :)
I just wanted to make a tiny correction to a Mem you have at Lincks Cemetery, being Mem # 7720154 for Infant son Richmond.
You have this at inscription:
Son of R.H. & A.H. Richmond
When in actuality it is B.H not R.H, however I can see it does look like an R but I'm positive it's a B
This was my G. Grandparents infant son.
I also wondered if you would mind transferring this Mem to me & also Sarah Richmond who's at the same cemetery, her Mem is 7725535. I respect however if u rather hold onto them.
Have a great Sunday & thanks for all you do :)

Hi Mike,
There is a listing for Manerva Edwards Woolum on Find A Grave, but there are no dates or photos. Has anyone actually seen a gravesite? If not, then where did the information originate?

Mike, Are you still making links and corrections to memorials you have added? I ask because I have sent some through the EDIT function on memorial and they don't appear to have been done.
