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, Thursday, 27 Nov 1879:
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 Friendship, of which organization he was a member.  He leaves a wife and three small children.

(Cuba Hudson married Eliza Porter on 18 Sep 1868, in Pulaski Co., Ill.—Darrel Dexter)

William H. Gordon, coroner of Perry County, was 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 Observer.

John Smith, son of Alex. Smith, accidentally shot himself in the arm while out hunting on the 13th inst.  He died Friday while his arm was being amputated. –Vienna Journal.
