Cause of Death: Amnesia

Event 1: 28 Oct 1850, Served on jury in White Co., IN (Source: W. H. HAMELLE, History of White County, IN Volume I & II , (ILLUSTRATED THE LEWIS PUBLISHING COMPANY CHICAGO AND NEW YORK 1915), CHAPTER XXXII "MOVING PICTURES" , THE GREAT MURDER TRIAL The Cantwell-Dayton murder trial is and always will be an interesting incident in White County history. Alfred L. Cantwell and Spencer S. Dayton, two laborers, and brothers-in-law, were given a life sentence for the murder of David Jones, who was shot in the breast and instantly killed. The shooting took place in Tippecanoe County, November 11, 1849, but the body was found in a pond within the border of White County. The defendants were indicted April 24, 1850, Joseph Phillips being foreman of the grand jury. The trial took place in the fall and on October 28, 1850, the following verdict was returned: "We, the jury, find the defendants Alfred L. Cantwell and Spencer J. Dayton, guilty of murder in the first degree as charged in the indictment and affix their punishment in the State's prison at hard labor, during their natural lives. JOSHUA LINDSAY, Foreman. "The jury in submitting the above verdict deem it fit to say that they are not opposed to the infliction of capital punishment on principle but believe the ends of government generally demand it for murder in the first degree. In this opinion all the members of the jury except two concur, but in consideration of the wrongs done Cantwell, and the youth of Dayton, they have preferred the mode of punishment put down in the above verdict." The wrong done Cantwell to which the jury referred was this: The evidence showed that Jones, who was killed, had arranged to elope with Cantwell's wife, and the latter, learning of this, had met Jones while he was waiting for Mrs. Cantwell, and at this meeting the shooting took place. Prior to the trial the prisoners, with Mrs. Cantwell, were for a short time confined in the jail at Delphi, but when the trial began all were brought to Monticello and placed in the old log jail which stood on the east side of Illinois Street just north of Marion Street. One morning during the progress of the trial, and after the prisoners had been taken to the courtroom, this old jail was found to be in flames, having doubtless been set on fire by the prisoners. It was but a small loss to the county. Of the twenty-seven witnesses subpoenaed by the state in this case not one survives. So much from the record. Many traditions are narrated as to Dayton, but it is likely he died in prison of tuberculosis. As to Alfred L. Cantwell, he was pardoned by the governor about 1861, enlisted in Company F, Twenty-seventh Indiana Volunteers, and in the battle of Antietam, September 17, 1862, was mortally wounded, but the date of his death is not known. In this company were Enoch G. Boicourt, Joshua Bunnell, Robert Gregory, John Ream, Samuel Reed Vinson, Henry Van Voorst and other formerly well-known White County soldiers. It was the first noted trial of such a character in White County. Isaac Naylor was the presiding judge; William Potter, prosecuting attorney; Ranson McConahay, clerk; and Pratt & Reyburn, attorneys for the defendants. The members of the grand jury that returned the indictment were William Turner, Newton Tedford, Joseph Bostick, Walker Graham, Alexander Briggs, Charles W. Kendall, Joseph Phillips, Thomas Sleeth, Jacob Graves, James K. Woods, Jonathan Oats, John C. Hughes, Thomas Wickham, William W. Mitchell and Jasel Fisher. They were under the charge of Loren Cutler, a sworn bailiff. The jury that heard the case and returned the verdict was composed of the following members: Okey S. Johnson, Joshua Lindsay, Amos Cooper, Alexander Miller, Isaac Davis, Peter Bishop, Christopher Itskin, Thomas W. Redding, Moses S. Barr, Asa Huff, Adam Hornback and Zebulon Sheetz .)

MOTHER'S DAY SENTIMENT SENT TO NEW HARMONY

Here is a letter from Corporal W.W.Barr that is so brim full of the spirit of "Mother's Day" that the one particular mother, Mrs. M.S.Barr, No. 1232 "C" Avenue East was willing other mothers of the county who have boys at the front might have a share of her treat. It is one of the nicest of letters, inspired by the occasion of "Mother's Day." Somewhere in France;

Dear Mother:- "Mother's Day" what beautiful sentiment. Somewhere in France, your boy is thinking of you wishing he could put his arms around you and tell you everything. This day is set aside for you only, but how unnecessary it is. Only we soldiers know how every day is Mother's Day for us. Not one passes that I do not think of you and wish I had lived my life more for you who gave it, and made it possible for me to be one of the many who are fighting for our country and you. There's a spot in my heart, that no Colleen may own. There's a depth to our soul never fanthomed, or known. There's a place in our memory my life that you fill. No other can take it, no one ever will. Sure I love the dear silver that shines in your hair and the brow that's all furrowed and wrinkled with care. I love the dear fingers, so toil worn for me, God bless you, and keep you, "Mother Machree." My favorite song and one we fellows sing almost every day. Many times I have heard some fellow say "I only wish I had a mother." There is one great good that will come from this war, if no other. It will make us all more appreciative of "Mother." I know you are proud of me. Far more so, maybe than you should be, and if I can only "be the fellow that my mother thinks I am," I will never be ashamed of my record. Don't worry about me, I am well cared for, Health is fine and we know the game well enough to take care of ourselves. So some day we will all come back and the proudest moment of our home coming will be when mother welcomes us. We will know that welcome is for us, and not what we stand for. God speed the day, the sincere wish of your son Corp. W.W.Bar, C.Bat. 119th.
