Obituaries and Documentation-Maccabee


Ackerman, Dennis: (added)  “Dennis Ackerman. Died Airway Heights, buried Sprague.” (St John’s Lutheran Church Burial Register; listed in the 1995 funeral listings, with no other dates)


Adwell, Charles E.:  (TS: 1866-1939)) “Funeral of Charles E. Adwell, Residence: Sprague, WA. Birth: Jan 27, 1886; Death: Jan 7, 1939; Aged: 72 yrs 11 mos 10 days. Male, white, farmer. Birthplace: Clinton Co, Iowa. Father: Joseph Adwell, born VA. Mother: Drivalbiss, born IN. Physician: Dr Mowery of Spokane. Burial: Maccabee Cemetery. Funeral: at chapel at 2 p.m. Interment: Jan 9, 1939. Clergyman: M. Plankenhorn.” (Sprague Mortuary ledger)

Adwell, Frank A.:  “On Friday last at 3 p.m. at the Black home, about 9 miles southwest of Sprague, Frank Adwell committed suicide by hooting himself in the head. A Mrs. Williams, a sister of Mrs. Black, a baby daughter of Mrs. Williams and 2 daughters of Mr. & Mrs. Black, aged 6 and 8 years, were in the house. A neighbor named Beals who had been sent for by Mrs. Williams was ordered off the premises by Adwell but a few moments before. He was still near the house and came in after the shot and took the gun away from Adwell, who was still alive. Dr Bittner of Sprague was telephones for from the Potts ranch a mile away. Adwell lived but a few minutes after the arrival of the doctor, dying about 4:50.  The coroner, sheriff and prosecuting attorney arrived from Ritzville about 9 p, m. and were conducted to the place by Dr Bittner. Mrs. Williams was questioned and made the statement that Adwell had threatened her life the day before in the presence of a man named James Clink and that Cliink had taken Black’s revolver with him upon leaving, saying that he and Adwell would stay together at the Murphy ranch where Clink was working for Black. The next afternoon (Friday) Adwell again appeared at Black’s home riding Clink’s horse and having in his possession Black’s revolver taken by Clink the day before. Mrs. Williams sent one of the children to the neighbors for Mr. Beals who came but was ordered off by Adwell, who he claimed drew the gun on him. Mrs. Williams who was much frightened asked him if he would murder her and leave the little girl without a mother. He replied, “no” and walked into an adjoining bed room remarking, “I’m no good here” and the shot followed immediately. This statement was corroborated by the eldest Black girl who with her 6 year old sister was standing in the bed room door.  Adwell explained his appearance on Clink’s horse by the statement that Clink was in trouble with the railroad company about some ties and had decamped on his (Adwell’s) horse the night before. At this writing Clink has not been found but we understand the Adams County sheriff is trying to locate him.  There are scores of stories afloat and countless theories have been expressed regarding the mysterious disappearance of Clink, the death of Adwell and other circumstances.  From this mass of matter we have tried to give only such statements as have considerable foundation in fact.  Adwell was buried Sunday services being held in the Lee Undertaking parlor and interment was made in Maccabee Cemetery.” (Sprague Advocate-Nov 20, 1914)

Mr. Adwell was one of the veterans of the civil war, although not a member of the GAR.  He came to this vicinity over 20 years ago and was one of the best respected citizens in the neighborhood in which he lived.

Funeral services were conducted at the family home yesterday by Rev Williamson of Plaza. The remains were brought to the Maccabee Cemetery in this city for interment.

Arnold, Myra E.:  “ Monday night, June 1, the condition of Mrs. James C. Arnold, who had underwent an operation for gallstones at Myrtle Hospital, grew worse, and as the day wore on she lapsed into unconsciousness, and passed away Tuesday afternoon. A life is not justly measured by years, nor by the accumulation of wealth, but by the intrinsic value of character. Events are the best calendars, and though these events may be the commonplace ones of everyday life, it is the sum total of them that makes for character. The kindnesses done, the comfort given, the encouragement to some lonely soul, the solace in some hours of deepest sorrow, may not singly be of much moment, but their value is beyond words and they fill the chalice of memory with choicest gems. But the humblest among us can do our full duty as it lies before us, as did this noble woman whose work on earth is finished. Myra E Berkley was born in New York in 1854. When yet a child her parents moved to Mount Carroll, Ill.  Here she grew to womanhood. In July, 1876, she was married to James C. Arnold of Maquoketa, Iowa, and here they made their home for many years. To this union five children were born.—Mrs. Wallace York of Mitchell, SD; J. Bof Sterling, Col.; Charles, Edwin and Ruth of Sprague, who, with the sorrowing husband, are left to mourn her loss.  Early in life she united with the Episcopal church and lived a conscientious Christian life to the end. Her faith was firm and her hope was strong in the realization of the divine promises. She had suffered much, pain and suffering had bent her form, but her lips ne’er gave out a coward’s cry, the heart was always young. We feel that as we consign her mortal remains to mother earth we can say with the poet, ‘Oh, grave, a sacred trust to thee is given. No common ashes within thy guardian arms. Securely keep this consecrated dust till quickened with new life, it shall be a glorious body fitted for the skies.’ The funeral services were held Sunday afternoon, June 7, at the residence, and were conducted by the Rev Mr. Wilbur of the Congregational church. The floral offerings were very beautiful. The sympathy of the entire community goes out to the bereaved husband and family. Interment in the Maccabee Cemetery. Communicated.”  “We wish to express our sincere thanks to the many kind friends and neighbors who aided and so deeply sympathized with us in our recent bereavement.  J. C. Arnold and family.” (Sprague Advocate-June 12, 1914)
