NANCY KOZLOWSKI, Daughter of Jesse Ariail. Nancy Kozlowski, 50, of Embden, Maine, died unexpectedly at the Florida Hospital Waterman in Tavares, Fla., on February 5, 2009. She and her husband, Robert, were spending a few months in Florida to escape the harsh winter of New England. Mrs. Kozlowski was born in Greenville, S.C., on May 1, 1958, and was the daughter of Jesse Ariail and Nancy (Nichols) Cappotto. She attended Marblehead High School in Marblehead. While living in Massachusetts, she worked for the Zayre department store for several years, the place where she would meet her future husband, Robert. She married Robert Kozlowski on May 14, 1983, in Salem. She also became a CNA, working in this field for many years in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Mrs. Kozlowski enjoyed photography and interior decorating. She was intrigued with the medical profession and became very knowledgeable in that field. She also liked to watch game shows and old movies, as well as play the slot machines in Connecticut and Las Vegas. She and her husband, Robert, loved to travel, especially within the United States, although they just recently spent their 25th wedding anniversary in Freeport, Bahamas, after having gone there for their honeymoon in 1983. Her love for her son, Kenneth, was unconditional, and her devotion and support to her husband was truly remarkable. She was also very devoted to the family dog, Sienna. Mrs. Kozlowski was diagnosed with a rare blood disease in 1983, which led to other various complications. She therefore was constantly fighting an uphill medical struggle. However, she endured daily and never let it interfere with her zest for life. She accomplished more in her 27-year battle than most would do in a lifetime. Her inner strength, will and drive were a true inspiration. To say she gave so much of herself for others is truly an understatement. For these reasons and countless others, her untimely death brings with it incredible shock and sadness to all who knew and loved her. This beautiful, thoughtful, selfless and remarkable woman will never be forgotten.
Mrs. Kozlowski is survived by her husband of 25 years, Robert Kozlowski of Embden, Maine; one son, Kenneth Kozlowski of Windham, Maine; two sisters, Terry Ward and Heather Ariail of South Carolina; a brother, Bernard and his wife Marilyn Maurais of Corvallis, Ore.; and several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and grandparents in South Carolina, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. She also cherished the hundreds of friendships made in Maine since moving there in 1980. She was predeceased by her mother, Nancy Cappotto; her stepfather, Richard Cappotto; and a truly important part of her life, her aunt Bettie Ariail. Visiting hours will be held on Wednesday, February 11, 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. at the Smart & Edwards Funeral Home, 183 Madison Ave., Skowhegan, Maine. A funeral service will be held on Thursday, February 12, at 9 a.m. at the funeral home with the Rev. Mark Tanner officiating. Burial will be at a later date in the spring. In lieu of flowers, Mrs. Kozlowski's husband requests that consideration be given to making a donation or a memorial gift in her honor to the Histiocytosis Association of America, 332 N. Broadway, Pitman, NJ 08071, 856-5896606, www.histio.org.

JAMES HENDRICKS, Husband of Ethel Smith, Luke Ariail family line. White Man Killed and Woman Assaulted in Crow Creek Section The most atrocious crime ever committed in Pickens county occurred at the old Parson's mill place in the Crow Creek section, fourteen miles above Pickens, Monday night, when Floyd McCollums, a Negro killed James Hendricks, a white man, and committed rape upon a woman of Hendricks' home, forcing the woman to remain with him until about daylight Tuesday morning. The woman informed a neighbor of the occurrence, but Sheriff Roark was not notified until about two o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Upon receipt of the information the sheriff and Policeman Nealey left for the scene of the crime. At
this time the body of the dead man had not been found, but, Sheriff Roark found it about 3 o'clock, behind the barn, about thirty yards from Hendricks' home. A hole had been knocked in the left side of his head, probably with a stick. About 1 o'clock Monday afternoon Hendricks and the Negro went together after some whiskey. Returning with the whiskey, the Negro then went somewhere after a chicken, which he brought back to Hendricks' house, where it was cooked and eaten. After supper, about 10 o'clock, the Negro pretended to see something in the yard, and he and the white man went out to see what it was. That was the last seen of Hendricks alive. The Negro returned to the house alone and forced the woman to remain with him until next morning. James Hendricks moved from Easley to Crow Creek only a few weeks ago and was not well known in that section, though it was known that his character was not of the best and not much importance was at first attached to the story of his disappearance, this causing the delay in notifying the sheriff. It is said that Hendricks and his wife did not get along together very well. At this time (Tuesday night) the Negro has not been captured. Officers and several citizens are scouring the country for him. We have been unable to learn the degree of excitement which prevails in the section where the crime was committed. McCollum is not well known in this section.
(Source: The Pickens Sentinel, Jul 2, 1914. Note: James Hendricks died 29 Jun 1914 approximately 10 p.m.).
McCullum, Murderer, Landed in Columbia.
The Pickens Sentinel, Jul. 9, 1914.
Floyd McCullum, the Negro murderer who committed two flendish crimes in the Crow Creek section of Pickens county last week, was captured near Franklin, N.C., Friday morning by Sheriff R.R. Roark and Policman H.A. Nealey, of Pickens, who were accompanied by Dover Hinkle and Fred Whitmire, of the upper part of the county. The officers took the prisoner on a branch line railroad from Franklin to Cornelia, Ga., where they changed to the main line and carried the prisoner to Columbia. The people in Pickens knew nothing of the capture until the Negro was out of reach and well on the way to the penitentiary. The chase for the negro began Tuesday night and was incessant until the capture Friday morning, being conducted with great skill and fortitude. During that time the officers chased the fiend about 135 miles through swamps and mountains and slept but five hours and ate two meals. The Negro had a long start and at times the hunt seemed fruitless, but with courage and determination which you seldom hear of except in novels, the officers pushed on. He had inquired along his route the direction to Asheville, while at the same time he was headed for the Tennessee line. The officers came upon him in what is known as Sugar Fork, ten or fifteen miles from the Tennessee line in North Carolina. The Negro made no resistance when captured. He denied the crime, but admitted that he was in the neighborhood of the dead man's home on Monday night. He is known by the names of Floyd McCullum, Alex McLain and Clate Humphrey. A reward of $300 had been offered for the capture of the Negro, Sheriff Roark offering to pay $50 and Gov. Blease $250. It is likely that the reward offered by the governor will be divided between Sheriff Roark and Chief Nealey. Pickens county was greatly stirred by the murder of Hendrix and a lynching could hardly have been averted had the Negro been brought to the Pickens jail. The Sentinel last week carried an account of the crimes, which occurred Monday night in the Crow Creek section. McCullum killed James Hendrix, a white man, and criminally assaulted a white woman in the same section. It was Tuesday afternoon before the sheriff heard of the crimes. The verdict of the coroner's jury was that "James Hendrix came to his death caused by some blunt instrument believed to have been in the hands of one Floyd McCullum."
(Note: Floyd McCullum was found guilty of the crimes and died in the Electric Chair.)

OTTO CLARK, Husband of Opal Mae Hinton, Climelia Abigail Ariail Family Line. DUEL ENDS LIFE OF TWO ROGERS COUNTY FARMERS AFTER ARGUMENT. Lewis Bessem And Otto Clark Met In Gun Battle At The Bill Dye Farm In Wingonon District Friday Evening; Shooting Fatal To Both Men. HAD BEEN HAVING TROUBLE OVER LAND RENTALS; NO EYE-WITNESSES TO FRAY. Just Like Days In Early West, They Met And Both Began Firing; Local Officers Investigate But Are Holding
No One In Connection With Affair. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Lewis Bessem, 37, and Otto Clark, 28, are dead at Chelsea as the result of a shooting affray which occurred at the farm of Bill Dye, near Wingonon school house between Chelsea and Talala, Friday evening. It is said that the men had been having trouble for several months over the rental of lands. According to officers, Bessem, who is known to many Claremore and Inola, people, pointed a gun at C. Clark, Otto Clark's father several days ago, after a heated argument. They were separated by friends. The men, both armed, met at the Dye farm Friday night and although they were no eye witnesses to the tragedy, both men are believed to have begun firing immediately. Clark is said to have fired four shots, all of which entered Bessem's body. The latter fired five times, four of his bullets taking effect. Both men were dead before medical attention could be summoned. Clark is survived by a wife and four children, besides his parents. Bessman is reports as "not married," though he was once married to Faye Lauthers, an Inola girl, and lived there for a while. They later separated. She re-married and he came back and administered a flogging to his successor to her affections, who promptly left the country. County Attorney Dennis Bushyhead and Sheriff Faulkner, with Deputy Hurt Flippin, hastened to the scene of the trouble and questioned a farmer giving his name as Joe Smithy, with whom Bessman lived; also Coty Wallace, said to be the owner of the gun used by one of the dead men was questioned. Neither of these men were held. Dye, who is an industrious farmer of the Wingonon district is in no way connected with the tragedy, which unfortunately occurred at his farm. The principals merely happened to meet there, and there the tragedy occurred. Several phone calls were made by the Claremore Progress in an effort to get more of the details of this shooting, which were unfruitful. Funeral arrangements for Clark and Bessman have not been announced as yet. SYLVIA OLETA BROWN, Climelia Abigail Ariail Family Line.

He was active in many aspects of life, but what was foremost in his desires was his love of his Lord Jesus Christ. If Lowell ever participated in any endeavor, he usually ended up being in charge of getting it done. He saw the need of sending physicians to mission hospitals around the world and became co-founder of World Medical Missions. He was also on the Board of Samaritan's Purse. He spent a large portion of "vacation time" operating in hospitals in third world countries as a witness to his patients about the Lord. Not only was he active in ministry but also in his profession, serving as president of the North Carolina Chapter of the American College of Surgeons, President of the North Carolina Surgical Association and a two term Governor for the state of North Carolina to the American College of Surgeons. He was president of Watauga Surgical Group for thirty four years, Chief of Medical Staff of Watauga Medical Center on three occasions, and Chief of Surgery of Watauga Medical Center for many years. He utilized each of these positions as an opportunity to let others see evidence of what Jesus Christ meant in his everyday life. Even with leadership involvement in so many activities, he also found time for even more fun activities in life. He rafted the Colorado River through the Grand Canyon twice, as well as rafting smaller western rivers numerous times. He was an avid golfer, tennis player and racquet ball player. And if you asked him, one of his most cherished positions he enjoyed was his time as a team physician for the Appalachian State University football team since 1963. Most any Saturday, you could see him standing on the sidelines, cheering the team on, checking injuries, and even at times, trying to give the coach a play or two.
Dr. Furman was educated at Harriman High School in Harriman, Tenn. He received his undergraduate degree from the University of Tennessee, and his doctorate degree from the University of Tennessee Medical School. Dr. Furman was a flight surgeon in the U.S. Navy. Lowell Furman, born Feb. 21, 1932, died December 8, 2006; will be missed, but fondly remembered as a man who loved his surgical practice, loved life, and most of all; loved the Lord. Today, Lowell is satisfied. "And I in righteousness I will see your face; when I awake, I will be satisfied with seeing your likeness." Psalm 17:15 Dr. Furman is survived by his wife, Faythe R. Furman; three sons, Lowell B. Furman, Jr. and wife, Beth, of Bloomington, Ind., Robby Houck and wife, Michelle, of Charleston, S.C., and Chris Houck and wife, Angie, of Asheville; three daughters, Susan F.

RICHARD ERNEST FREDETTE, son of Eleanor Theresa Ariail, 3rd cousin twice removed of James Patterson. Canadian Family Line, Descendants of Michel Arial. TAPS ARE SOUNDED FOR FREDETTE TODAY Death Came Tuesday Night After Four Hopeless Weeks With Broken Neck, He Was Conscious Almost To The Last After having lived just a month with a broken neck, Richard Ernest Fredette of Middlebury, a member of Company I. V. N. G., died at the Post hospital at Fort Ethan Allen at 10 o'clock Tuesday night, reiterating almost to the last that his greatest grief was that he could not follow his comrades to the battlefield. In a flag draped coffin in which his body was removed from Burlington to Middlebury on Wednesday evening, he is being buried here today, with funeral services at his home conducted by President Thomas of Middlebury College. A bugler, Musician Nugar of Fort Ethan Allen, was detailed here to sound taps over the grave. The bearers were: Benjamin Cota, Milton Brown, Denzil Glavin, Thomas Bushway, Thomas Burns and Frank Goss. Up to within a short time of his death Fredette, although practically all of his body was paralyzed, was conscious and talked with his mother, Mrs. John Fredette, who had been at his bedside most of the time. He had talked a great deal of his comrades and when the regiment was broken up with the departure of a large portion of it for Massachusetts, he, realizing he would never be able to accompany it was greatly affected. His case was practically hopeless from the time he entered the hospital with injuries sustained when he dived into shallow water while swimming in Lake Champlain on August 5. At the hospital when it was determined that his neck was broken a delicate operation performed for the removal of part of the vertebra, but the surgeons realized that at best this would only give him a few weeks of life. The paralysis gradually spread and on Sunday he practically lost consciousness. Fredette, who was the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Fredette, would have reached his 20th birthday the 17th of next month. He enlisted in Company I, of Brattleboro just prior to the departure of the First Vermont for Mexican border service, his brother, Warren Fredette of Brattleboro, being at that time a sergeant in that Company, and since discharged.
He is survived by four brothers and five sisters, in addition to his parents. The brothers being Roland of Drewsville, N.H., Fred and Harry of Westmoreland, N.H., and Warren of Brattleboro.

Oryall breathed his last at the home of his son, Frank C. Oryall, 602 Briggs street. The gentleman had been gradually failing for several months, but was able to be about at all times, and a week ago last Friday he attended the funeral of the late Mrs. Wm. Leonard, Sr. The day was very cold and stormy, and Mr. Oryall caught a severe cold. He failed quite rapidly from this time and a few days later took to his bed. During the last three days of his sickness, he was in an unconscious condition and his death came very peacefully. Mr. Oryall was a native of Canada, born of French parents, near Quebec, 84 years ago the 2nd of last April. While still a young man he came across the line to New York State and married there. In 1855 the family came to Wisconsin, locating at Fond Du Lac, where Mrs. Oryall died some 13 years later. Mr. Oryall also made his home for some years at other points in Wisconsin, coming to this city 15 years ago, and had since lived with his son. He was remarkably active for one of his years, and in fact appeared to be only in the prime of his life. The aged gentleman was a sincere Christian and faithful member of St. Stephen's Church. He leaves five sons and daughters, Jos. Oryall of Green Bay, E.M., of Pelican Rapids, Minn., Mrs. Akins of Western, Nebraska, Mrs. Cole of Spokane, Wash.; and F.C. Oryall of this city.

His first client was long-time friend Michael Kamen, who died in 2003. Others on his managerial roster included music supervisors Nic Harcourt and Thomas Golubic. Urband "was the lord of my music world," said the four-time Oscar-nominated Desplat in a statement from London, where he is working on the latest "Harry Potter" score.

Mr. Johns was a worthy and respected member of the Woodman lodge since early manhood. He was a good husband and father providing well for his family and leading an exemplary life. He was liked by everyone for he was unswerving in loyalty to family and friends and his employers' best interests were his own. His loss will be felt in a large circle. As a young man he worked on the MK&T Railroad line until he was employed by the KCC&S, where he worked until the round house was abandoned in Clinton. He then went to Armour's where for seven years he was in charge of the picking room. This position he left for one at the Lindstrom Hatchery, where he was employed until this last fatal malady gripped him. His body arrived in Clinton Tuesday night and the funeral was conducted at the home on West Allen street Wednesday, Consalus and Peck in charge.
