BROTHER KILLS BROTHER


Russellville, July 23, 1923

Jess Church, aged 18, fatally stabbed his brother, Preacher Church, aged 16, in a drunken brawl Saturday night, while a dance was in progress in an out- house on the Petty farm, five miles north of Hector. Deputy Sheriff Alvin Stutts, of Hector, arrested Church Sunday morning and brought him to Russellville, where he is held pending an investigation.

From information brought to the city by the deputy sheriff, the two youths, who had had no previous quarrel, engaged in a fight while drunk, with the result that Jess Church was severely wounded by being struck over the head with a club and Preacher Church lost his life.

After the fight Jess went to the home of his girl, who accompanied him to the dance, and spent the night. When he awoke the next morning he was told that he killed his brother. He professed to have no knowledge of the fight and said he was so drunk that he did not remember anything that happened at the dance.

Both the youths are sons of a prominent farmer, Marion Church, who lives about 30 miles inland, in Jackson township. Church will be given a preliminary hearing as soon as the facts can be established by the officers.

Lois Adair Clemons

It is with both joy in celebration with Lois Adair Clemons and her reunion with her beloved husband of almost fifty years, Harold Glen Clemons, and with sadness for those of us who have been left behind, that we announce the death of Lois at Mitchell's Nursing Home in Danville, Arkansas on Thursday, October 8, 2015. Lois, who was 91 years old, succumbed to a brief illness, and died peacefully with her family around her.

Lois was born in Havana, the daughter of William Columbus Adair and I. Ola Gibbs Adair. Both Lois and Glen spent many years working in Booneville at the Arkansas Tuberculosis Sanatorium/Arkansas Children's Colony before retiring to Havana, then Springdale, and ultimately back to Yell County.

Lois is survived by two daughters, Gwendloyn Clemons Jolley Wiltsee and her husband Kenneth Wiltsee of Atlanta, Georgia and Jacqueline Clemons Keene and her husband Larry Keene of Springdale, Arkansas. In addi- tion, Lois was blessed with four grandchildren, Rex and Haley Holstein of Springdale; Ashley and Justin, also of Springdale; Katelyn Wiltsee of Atlanta; and Kristina Wiltsee Meeker and Luke Meeker of Nashville, Indiana.

Rounding out the immediate family are nine great-grandchildren, Natalie, Emily, Maddex, Braxton, and Hayden Holstein of Springdale; Landon and Blakelyn Kissinger of Springdale, Kaia Wiltsee of Atlanta, and Lyra Meeker of Nashville, Indiana.

There are also two sister-in-laws, Joyce Adair and Mary Nell Adair who are included as survivors, along with numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, cousins of types, plus numerous others who know Lois as either Aunt Lois or Grandma Clemons, not by blood, but by choice, relationships built on long-term kindness and love.

Lois was known as a person of faith and of kindness, a great listener, and a true supporter of those whom she loved. The description that she used about herself was that she would, "fight a circle saw" for those she loved. She was quiet, but strong; mild mannered, but tenacious; a person one could depend on to always be on "your side".

Please join us at celebration of Lois's life at the Assembly of God Church in Havana, Arkansas where Lois was a long-term member. The service was held at 10:00 a.m. Monday, October 12, 2015. The service will be followed immediately by a graveside service conducted at Moore's Chapel in Waveland.

Visitation was held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. Sunday, October 11, at the funeral home.
