SALEM - Our dear child, Marcus, came into this world fighting for his life. He fought courageously for six years and when he was called to leave us, he left bravely and without complaint. His genuine kindness, compassion, whole-hearted laughter, and love will always be an example of a life well-lived.

   ‘Marky’ loved all things mechanical. He was a wizard with a pair of pliers and a screwdriver. Anything that made him self-mobile was his great joy. He loved animals, food, and the color blue. He worked hard at whatever he could do for a small allowance, then spent his ‘dollars’ with amazing wisdom. He loved church and had the firm faith of a child.

Thank you, Marcus, for the gift of your life. Thank you for the light, the color, the magic, and all the love you brought to us. We miss you. Goodnight, ‘Little Man.’  SCOTT, T.G.

  The victim was riding his bike toward home after a trip to Middle Grove Market, about one-quarter of a mile from the crash scene in the 4600 block of Silverton Road NE.  He was riding in the right-hand lane of the road heading east when a passing car driven by Roy Rutschman, 47, of Silverton, collided with the bike.  Pieces of the bike were scattered along residential yards.  Police pointed out that the bike wasn't equipped with a light.
  Rutschman said the boy was `directly in front of me when I slammed on the brakes.'  The impact sent the boy crashing into the car's fender and windshield.  His body came to rest in a ditch alongside the road.
  Survivors besides the parents are a brother, Kenneth, 12, a sister, Ruth, 15, and a grandmother, Mrs. Henry Torvend, Salem.  The boy was a member of the Middle Grove Evangelical United Brethern Church." OS Feb 5, 1962 5:5

  "Salem Hermit Is Dead--Lifeless Body of David Shepardson Found in Home--Laying fully dressed, face downward, upon his bed in his meagerly furnished home in Morningside, David Shepardson, aged 85, was found dead by neighbors yesterday morning.  The deceased was something of a hermit, living alone in the house he purchased several years ago.  He was a frequent visitor at the home of neighbors and friends, where he `peddled' milk, and delivered butter and eggs.
  It is the belief of Coroner Clough, who was called to investigate the case, that the aged man died sometime during the day, Thursday.  The cause of his sudden passing was heart failure, according to this authority.  A brother of the deceased, who is believed to reside in Riverton, Neb., has been notified and no disposition of the remains will be made until a reply is received from the east.
  Coming to Morningside a few years ago, old Mr. Shepardson purchased three acres of land and the tiny house and immediately took possession.  He is not known to have any other property.  Seven dollars and ninety cents was found in his pockets by the coroner.  Mr. Shepardson was well liked by his neighbors, despite his peculiar mode of living, and when he did not appear as usual yesterday morning, his home was investigated.  They found the door locked and Coroner Clough was obliged to break the hinges to secure entrance.  No trace of violence were found and no evidence of foul play."

  "D.H. Sherwood Dead--Suddenly Prostrated While Working At His  Home--And Before Medical Aid Could Reach Him His Spirit Had Taken Its Flight---Daniel H. Sherwood, aged 67 years, died quite suddenly at his home in North Salem at 4:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
  At 3 o'clock he was working as usual around his house, being engaged in making a violin, when he became ill and was prostrated suddenly.  A messenger was sent to Salem for a physician, who went to his bedside only to find that his condition was a hopeless one, death coming at the time above stated.
  Mr. Sherwood was born near Berna-dotte, Fulton county, Illinois, in 1828, when there were few but Indians in that now rich and populous region.  He remained there all his early years and until 1871.  At the outbreak of the war of the rebellion he enlisted in Co. G, 11th Illinois Cavalry, Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll being his commanding officer, but he served only a short time when he was honorably discharged on account of hemorrhage of the bowels, from which he suffered continually at intervals until his death.
  He was married in 1854 to Catherine Elizabeth Fosselman, who is now a heart stricken mourner by the bier of her companion of over 40 years.  To them were born three children, only one of whom is now living, Gideon F., who is salesman at Gilbert & Patterson's grocery store.  In 1871 the family came to Oregon, living a short time in Linn county, but they have been respected residents of Salem over twenty years.  He has been a good man and citizen and the family have sincere sympathy in their deep sorrow.
  While his old ailment had caused him great suffering at times, yet his death was unexpected.  At 3 o'clock he was taken ill and at 4:30 he said "good-bye" to those around him and passed over in answer to the myster-ious roll-call.  He was prostrated suddenly and suffered intensely through several spasms.
  Mr. Sherwood was a member of Sedgwick post, G.A.R. and was also a member of the Christian church.  Funeral services will be conducted by the church and his comrade veterans will attend them.  He will not be buried before Friday and perhaps later, but final arrangements will be announced tomorrow."  DOS Oct 24, 1895

  In 1872 he disposed of this property and removed to salem where he has lived continuously since in the enjoyment of the greatest respect a community could bestow upon a mortal being.
  Although he was a member of no church or organization, he has always led an upright and honorable life and his good deeds upon this earth will remain fresh in the memory of all who knew him.  His beloved wife preceded him to the Great Unknown on January 30, 1893 and his marriage was blessed with two children, one of which, Mrs. R.

Spaulding, an early circuit rider and Methodist minister, died Wednesday evening at the age of 81 years, at Vale, Oregon.  He was the father of Bruce Spaulding, Polk county district attorney.  Rev. Spaulding had been active until the time of his death.
  He was born January 11, 1862, in Monticello, Wash., the son of a pioneer circuit rider.  He entered the Methodist ministry following his grad-uation from Willamette university in 1880, and during his lifetime also served pastorates in South America.  His father at one time taught at Willamette university.
  His wife, the former Catherine MacDonald, was drowned in an accident in 1909.  To the couple were born 11 children, nine of whom are living.  The children include, R.T. Spaulding of St. Helens, Earl Spaulding of Hood River, Frank Spaulding of Odessa, Texas, Olin Spaulding of Arlington, Oregon, David Spaulding of Santa Monica, Calif., Mrs. Mary Fletcher of Eugene, Mrs. Fay Swan of Vale, Oregon and Bruce Spaulding of Dallas.  He is also survived by 12 grandchildren.

  "Died, in Salem, July 1, 1878, Mrs. Harriet Ellen Spaulding, wife of D.L. Spaulding, of Oregon conference of the M.E. Church.
  Sister Spaulding, daughter of Horace Smith was born June 24, 1829, in Fabius Onondaga county, New York, in which place she spent most of her girlhood days.  In early life--even in childhood--she became the subject of converting grace, and an active worker in the Church.  In 1859 she came to this coast and on the 11th of February of the same year was united in marriage to Rev. D.L. Spaulding, her now bereaved husband.  Sister S. was one of those who consecrate all their soul and body powers to the work of the Lord.  She believed it to be her duty to attend and assist her husband in his itinerant work and hence she was by his side in `cold and heat and moist and dry.'  Sowing at all times and beside all waters.  Being of rather feeble constitution through excessive labor of body and mind her nervous system gave way and she sank gently to the tomb.  The writer has been acquainted intimately with her itinerant life, and without casting reflection upon any, can say that he has never known any more fully conse-crated to the work of the Lord than she.  She rests with the `blessed dead,' her body in the mission cemetery, her soul with Christ.  A husband, daughter and son are the chief mourners, but doubtless many a tear will fall from the eyes of those that have been blessed by her labors."

  "Murder Most Foul: Mr. David Swartz Murdered in Cold Blood--Shot While in his wagon, and Left by the Roadside.--Mr. David Swartz, one of the earlier settlers of Salem Prairie, was found Sunday morning near his home, with several shot wounds in and about his head and neck and from the effects of which he died early yesterday morning.  The cicumstances as related to us are about these:
  Last Saturday Mr. Swartz was in the city during the forenoon and returned home.  He then went with his team over to the sawmill after a load of lumber, and returning had got within a quarter of a mile of home when he was fired upon, apparently from the fence corner, the shot taking effect, as above stated, in the head and neck.  He must have fallen thence to the ground, and his assassin or assassins then approached and putting a pistol close to his head fired, as they supposed, the farewell shot.  The shot powder burned his neck where the ball entered, and gave the evidence of the position in which the weapon must have been held.
  The parties doing the dastardly work then ran away, leaving the old man weitering in his blood, while the team stopped near the fence, where they were found the next morning, yet hitched to the loaded wagon.
  Swartz had been having some trouble with his family lately, and his wife and son, the latter a lad about fifteen years old, were arrested as the guilty parties and lodged in jail Sunday evening.  Notwithstanding Drs. Kinney and Rowland had been summoned and did all that medical skill could do, Mr. Swartz died yesterday morning at nine o'clock.  Coroner Dr. Warinner held his inquest upon the body during the afternoon, the verdict of the jury being in accordance with the above facts.  Late last evening a man named Henry and a negro named Joe Drake were also arrested.  As the examination takes place this morning in Squire Coffey's court, we withhold further comment for the present."

  "Alonzo Swartz was taken before Justice H.A. Johnson yesterday morning and arraigned on the charge of murder.  Deputy District Attorney A.O. Condit was the private prosecutor and the criminal information reads as follows: `The said Alonzo Swartz on the 29th day of March, 1895, in the county of Marion and state of Oregon, then and there being, did then and there unlawfully, feloniously, purposely and of deliberate and premeditated malice kill Edward Swartz by then and there unlawfully and feloniously striking, cutting and stabbing and killing him the said Edward Swartz with a knife, contrary to the statutes in such cases made and provided and against the peace and dignity of the state of Oregon.'  Messrs, Hayden & McNary appeared as counsel for Mr. Swartz and a postponement of the preliminary examination was asked for until Friday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock.  This was granted by the justice of the peace and the old man was taken back to jail.
  The Telegram of last night contained the following concerning the inquest held yesterday:
  `It was a pitiful and sad sight at the coroner's office.  Three of the children of Alonzo Swartz, having been subpenaed to testify at the inquest had come on the Southern Pacific train from Salem.  There were two daughters, just entering upon womanhood, and their little brother, 14 years old.  They waited patiently in the general room of the office for their turn to tell their story of trouble.  And in the back room, stretched upon a slab was the body of their brother, with a great gash in the left side of his neck, showing where the knife had entered and severed the arteries.
  `Walter Swartz, the 14 year-old brother of the dead man, was the first witness called.  He told a plain and intelligent story of the trouble.  At times he showed a tendency to be as lenient as possible toward the father, and then again in telling of the ill-treatment of his mother, he showed the feeling that controlled him and the remainder of the family.
  `But the most succint story of the affair was given by Emma Swartz, a daughter, about 20 years old.  She, too, evinced by her manner that long years of suffering through the ill-nature of her father had created in her a bitter hatred of him, kept from explosion by a remembrance of the affection which had long ago died away.
  `Swartz and his son, Edward had come home to supper between 8 and 9 o'clock on the evening of March 29th.  He immediately began to quarrel with Mrs. Swartz over the age of the son.  Swartz insisted that Edward was 21 years of age, while his wife said he was 22.  He told her to get a book containing the family record, which she did not do immediately.  Then his anger broke loose.
  `If you don't get the book I'll shoot your damned head off!' he explained.
  `Edward defended his mother, and had angry words with the father as the other children looked on cowering in fear, and Mrs. Swartz, frightened had left the room.
  `When it comes to murder at home, said the son, it is time for me to get off the place.  And he arose, took his coat off the rack, and was putting it on when the father went for him.
  `With a pocket knife which he had been using at the table, he cut the son in the neck.  He struck again, and cut Edward under the left side of the arm.  His coat was half on so he could not defend himself.  The father slashed at him several more times, and then he fell to the floor from loss of blood.
  `You are going to die, said he. `I meant for you to die.'
  `He reached for his rifle which hung on the wall.  Taking it down he pointed it at his son, lying in his blood upon the floor, and pulled the trigger.  Mattie and Emma, the two sisters sprang forward, and grasped it and his fury passed off.  Edward was cared for at home several days, and then as he grew worse was sent to St. Vincent's hospital in Portland, where his wounds, though sewed by skillfull physicians, would not heal.  He bled to death from the cut in his neck.
  `When Emma had finished this recital in detail, George F. Porter, a brother of Mrs. Swartz, living at Grand Ronde, was called to identify the body and describe Swartz's disposition.  He corroborated the statements of the children, and said that they had not told half that might be said about their father's unbearable disposition.
  `And the coroner's jury, with expressions of anger at the story they had heard, quickly found a verdict charging Swartz with the murder."  DOS Apr 24, 1895 4:5  See also: DOS Apr 25, 1895 4:2

  Mr. Swartz crossed the plains with a large immigrant caravan in 1852.  Many miles he trugged along the Barlow Trail, so called because it was laid out by Captain Barlow, founder of the Barlow trading station near Canby, with an ox goad in his hand.  The caravan was made up of 40 wagons and 150 people.  About 70 of the people were men.  So large was the train that, although Indians were seen from time to time, not even a war-whoop was heard.
  Arriving in the Willamette Valley, Simon Swartz, father of Richard, liked the country so well that he located here rather than going on into California as planned.  As all of the donation land claims had been given out, the father purchased a 640 acre tract of land four miles northeast of Salem for the sum of $1,000.  It was on a part of this land that Mr. Swartz died Monday.
