22. ATKINS, SPENSER
Hamilton Free Press, May 17, 1894
LAMAR COUNTY JAIL
NOW GUARDED BY MILITARY TO PROTECT PRISONERS
Vernon, May 15 – (Special) – When Rube Burrow, the famous outlaw, started out with his band of desperadoes and train robbers, it was in Lamar County. This same county has given birth to another band which is equally as lawless as the famous Burrow gang.
       At Vernon, a few nights ago, a band of white caps went to the house of SPENSER ATKINS, bound his hands, gagged him and marched him about 300 yards from his house and riddled his body with bullets. It is said that ATKINS was an upholder of law and order and that this band would be safer if the county were rid of him. So on this account, according to the story, ATKINS was finally murdered in cold blood.
       On Sunday night DREW NEALANDS was arrested by Sheriff PENNINGTON upon suspicion of being implicated in the murder of ATKINS.
       It seems that there had been an ironclad oath of allegiance to each other sworn by the band that attempted this outrage, and that if any member was caught the others were to rescue him.
       NEALANDS spent Sunday and Monday nights in jail, and yesterday morning gave the whole methods of the band away and implicated ALEX and ALLEN JORDAN, nephews of ATKINS, and another young man. The sheriff went at once and arrested these alleged outlaws and placed them in jail.
       Owing to the alleged oath of the band and the fears that an attempt to release the prisoners would be made Sheriff PENNNINGTON ordered out Company M of the Alabama state troops, which are now guarding Lamar county jail.       
       An attack was feared, but so far as is known nothing has transpired.

23. CLARK, Mrs. TAMA
Hamilton Free Press, July 12, 1894
ANOTHER GOOD WOMAN GONE
Died - On July 4th, at Guin, Mrs. TAMA CLARK, after an illness of several weeks. Mrs. CLARK was a good woman and had many friends in the different communities in which she has lived. She leaves an aged husband, several children and many grandchildren to mourn her departure. But these bereaved ones have the satisfactory testimony that she is indeed a “Mother in Israel” and may this comfort them in their hour of sadness.

24. BALLARD, Mrs. ADNEY
Hamilton Free Press, July 12, 1894
We regret to chronicle the death of Mrs. ADNEY BALLARD which occurred at her home near Bexar on last week. The grief stricken husband and motherless children have our sincere sympathy.
ALSO AUGUST 2, 1894 ISSUE
OBITUARY
       These lines are written to perpetuate the memory of a good woman. Mrs. SADIE BALLARD (Nee BYRD), wife of W. A. BALLARD was born July 7th, 1854 and “fell asleep” July 5th 1894. Thus it was that she lacked but two days of having completed a pilgrimage of forty years. No written sketch can do justice to the spotless life and precious memory of this noble Christian woman. Of her it may be truly said,
None knew her but to love her,
None named her but to praise
       Sister BALLARD professed faith in Christ at the age of seventeen years and when twenty-two years old, she joined the M. E. Church, South. In the church of her choice, she lived a consistent and devoted member until God said, “it is enough’ come up higher.” Sister Ballard was no ordinary woman. After serving as her pastor for nearly eight months, this writer learned to regard her as one of the best women he ever knew. She was loyal to the church and her partner. Her house was the preacher’s home, and how pleasant it was to go there, this writer will never forget.
       Being of a modest and retiring disposition, hers was a quiet, unassuming life, yet it was a life fraught with power for good. A very worthy and important part of her life work is exemplified in the womanly character of her two surviving daughter, whose lives were so skillfully trained by her motherly influence. Surely in after years her children will “rise up and call her blessed.” She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, a constant friend, a neighbor obliging and true –indeed in every relation of life, she acted well her part.
       Sister BALLARD seemed to have had a presentment of her approaching dissolution, even before she was taken sick. Sometime in the spring or early summer she told her husband that she would not live to see the present crop completed. So it was; her words came true.
       She suffered long and severely, too, but like the Christian woman that she was, she murmured not.
       Often and freely did she talk of death, never expressing a desire to get well, but ever declaring her readiness and willingness to depart. And as the final hour drew nigh, she entered the “valley of the shadow of death” without a fear, even “as one who wraps the drapery of his couch about him, and lies down to pleasant dreams.”
       Sister BALLARD has passed through the pearly gates into the eternal city. Earth is poorer and Heaven is richer now that she is gone. Her sufferage are ended. She has entered into the joys of the Lord.
Today she bathes her weary soul
In seas of heavenly rest,
And not a wave of trouble rolls
Across her peaceful breast.
       Today she feasts upon ambrosial fruits that grow in richest clusters hard by the limpid waters of the river of life. Her pastor being absent, the funeral services were conducted by Bro. JOHN ARNOLD, who preached the funeral sermon from Job 14th chap. and 14th v. After which a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends followed her remains to their last resting place in the cemetery at Smyrna Church.
       May the God of all grace, comfort, and sustain the lonely husband, the motherless daughters, the brothers and sister, and all that inner circle of stricken hearts. May they all meet Sister BALLARD “in the Sweet By-and By”
       And to those who may read this humble sketch, let me say, “Be ye also ready, for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
       Her pastor, W. L. HENDRICKS, Hamilton, la. July 24th, 1894

31. STANFORD – A. J.
Hamilton Free Press, Nov. 22, 1894
IN MEMORIUM
It becomes our sad duty to announce the death of our friend and townsman, A. J. STANFORD. He died about 9:30 p.m. Sunday Nov. 18, 1894, at his residence in Hamilton after an illness of sixteen days. From the first his disease, erysipelas, took an alarming turn, and was soon followed by blood-poisoning. Everything possible was done to arrest the progress of the disease, but to no avail, and finally the attending physician announced that there was no hope. His aged mother, brothers and sisters were summoned to his bedside where they remained until death came. He suffered the most excruciating pain all through his illness but bore it all with much patience and was resigned to death.
       The deceased was born in Lamar county January 8, 1858 and came to Hamilton in 1886 to practice his profession, the law. During the eight years he lived with us he made many friends by his close attention to business and his honesty and integrity in all business relations. He leaves a wife and six little children to struggle with life’s battles and mourn their sad loss, but they grieve not as those who have no hope for when death came he was ready. He was buried last Tuesday morning in the cemetery at this place with the honors of masonry, the funeral service being conducted by Rev. J. W. WHITE, of Hackleburgh. A large concourse of sorrowing friends followed the remains to their last resting place where they will repose until the morn of the resurrection.
       In his death, a kind husband and loving father has been removed, and our town loses one of its best and most highly respected citizens, but his bereaved family and friends are left with the sweet hope that they can see him again in the home of the saints, for he left evidence that he was at peace with God. When asked as to how he felt concerning the future, he replied that he was not afraid to die; that he was trusting in god and would die with faith. At the trying moment no cloud hovered over his couch between him and his Savior. He suffered untold misery in the flesh, but freed from its tenement of clay his spirit winged its way to the beautiful home beyond, where sickness, and death are unknown .
       Peace to his memory and may the Ruler of Heaven who knows and directs all things for the best, look down and guard and protect his wife and fatherless children.
ALSO – DECEMBER 13, 1894 ISSUE
