The Pulaski Patriot,
Friday, April 23rd, Lois Isabella,
infant daughter of L. G. & S. E. Baker, aged two
weeks and one day. Too sweet a bud to blossom here.
The Pulaski Patriot, Thursday, 3 May 1877:
We were astounded to hear of the sudden death of Mr. Louis
Jaccard last week.
JACCARD—On Wednesday, April 25, at his home in Caledonia, Louis Jaccard,
aged 49 years.
Another one of Pulaski County's citizens gone! Louis
Jaccard died at 4:30 p.m., Wednesday, April 25th,
after a short illness. He was born at Jonesboro, Illinois,
on the 17th day of February 1828, and moved to
this county in the year 1833. He married the widow Sarah B.
R. Echols, daughter of the venerable Dr. D. Arter,
universally known throughout this country. Mr. Jaccard
was kind and affectionate in his family and with his friends
and was possessed of those qualities which shine forth
transcendentally in the solid men of our country—temperance
and morality. He was a member of the Presbyterian Church
and a devoted Christian. F. B.
(His marker in Echols Cemetery reads:
David L. Jaccard Born Feb. 17, 1828 Died April
25, 1877.—Darrel Dexter)
The Pulaski Patriot, Thursday, 24 Apr 1879:
A strange man was struck by a passenger train on the I. C.
R. R. near Ullin last Friday and terribly battered up. He
was taken to Cairo, where he has probably died before this
time as his injuries were of a fatal character.
The Pulaski Patriot,
Mrs. S. G. Hindman died at her residence in
Carbondale, after a lingering illness last Monday morning.
(This may be the same person as Margaret
Harmon, who married Samuel Hindman on 22 Dec
1854, in Jackson Co., Ill.—Darrel Dexter)
Cuba Hudson, a highly respected colored man, died at
his home in this place last Friday night. He was buried by
the Mound City and Cairo lodges United Brothern in

on 18 Sep 1868, in Pulaski Co., Ill.—Darrel Dexter)

killed under the wheels of a car at the St. Louis Union
depot Tuesday of last week. He had gone on the
Pinckneyville excursion to St. Louis and was just about
starting home with too much whisky aboard. He was the man
who shot the notorious Missouri outlaw, Sam Hildebrandt.—Carbondale
