BURNS TO DEATH

 

A. L. TIPTON

WAR VETERAN
DIES IN HEN
HOUSE BLAZE

______

CHARRED BODY FOUND IN
RUINS AFTER MYSTERY
EXPLOSION

     Mystery surrounds the manner in which Augustus Louis Tipton, 31 years old, son of Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Tipton, was trapped and burned to death in a small chicken house at the rear of his home, 2653 Alabama avenue, Trinity Heights, late Tuesday afternoon.
     His charred body was found by firemen when they lifted a section of the roof of the building, after the flames had been extinguished.
Tipton was at his home alone, his wife and two children being away when the fire was discovered.
     C. C. Johns, 2641 Alabama avenue, a neighbor, discovered the blaze and summoned firemen, after he heard a muffled explosion and saw the small structure burst into flames.
     Near the spot where Tipton's body was found, firemen discovered a five-gallon kerosene or gasoline can. The top had been blown off by the explosion of the contents.

Explosion Mysterious.
     Whether this explosion killed Tipton or injured him so that he was unable to escape from the building, could not be determined. It is believed, however, that the fire had been burning in the shed some time before the explosion occurred. Tipton may have been using gasoline to clean the hen house.
     Tipton and members of his family, with friends and other relatives, were planning to attend a picnic and family reunion, to be held at the home of his parents at De Soto, Tex. Arrangements for him to go early to the picnic grounds and prepare for the arrival of others, had been made.
     When Mrs. Tipton reached home, she discovered her husband had been killed, and the outhouses at their home destroyed by fire. She was prostrated and under the care of a physician Tuesday night.
     Tipton volunteered and entered the Marine Corps at the beginning of the World war, and trained at Paris Island. Shortly after entering the service, he was selected, with nine other marines, for service in an intelligence corps and he aided in searching out spies reported at the camp.

Gassed in Battle.
     He was gassed during the Argonne Forest engagement, and after remaining in hospitals of France for several months, was sent home as a casual.
     Since his return here, he has engaged in the raising of fine chickens, and was regarded by fanciers as an authority on chicken raising.
     He is survived by his parents, a wife and two children, Marjorie Beth and Gordon Louis, and two brothers, Dr. Henry Tipton and E. B. Tipton.

1928
MRS. BURGOON DIED AT THE HOME OF DAUGHTER IN THIS CITY LAST FRIDAY

     Mary V. Burgoon, 85 years of age and a resident of Texas for about 65 years, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Henry M. Lucas, in this city, last Friday morning following a short illness.
     Funeral services were held from the Methodist Church on Monday afternoon and burial followed at the Minter Cemetery near Grapevine.
     Mrs. Burgoon, whose maiden name was Mary V. Boals, was born in Christian County, Missouri, Sept. 30, 1842 where she was reared to womanhood. Sixty five years ago, she was married to Mr. Burgoon, and they settled near the place of nativity, where they resided a few years when they came to Texas. They settled on Grapevine Prairie, some twelve miles north west of this city, where they resided continuously. Mr. Burgoon soon after coming to this state preempted land, and engaged in farming and stock raising, and was eminently successful. He accumulated quite a ranch which he managed until his death some seventeen years ago. A few years before his death he established a community store at Estelle, which he conducted and for a few years as postmaster.
     Mr. and Mrs. Burgoon were pioneers in this community and they were always active in community interests. When the war clouds of the early sixties hovered over this country, Mr. Burgoon joined a company organized in his community under the command of Capt. Quales, and served in the Confederate army.
     Following the death of her husband, Mrs. Burgoon assumed the management of the affairs, remaining on the home place until her health failed some three years ago. She then came to Grand Prairie and has made her home with Mrs. Lucas. She has always led an active outdoor life, and has enjoyed remarkably good [health] for a person of her age, and was ill for only a short time previous to her death, which came peacefully, as if falling asleep.
     She was truly a Christian woman. During her early life she professed faith in her Master and united with the Methodist Episcopal church. She was active in church work all of her life. She was never too busy, nor too weary to obey the call of her Master, her pastor or her church organizations.. In the early days church edifices were few in number and it was difficult at times to secure the necessary funds for their erection and their support. There was no edifice in her community, so she personally donated ground and financed the erection of the church building in Estelle, which at the time was known as Grapevine Prairie.
     Mrs. Burgoon was the mother of ten children, six of whom survive. They are Mrs. M. Goodfellow, Hoover Gray County; Mrs. H. M. Lucas of this city; C. E. Burgoon, Hollywood, Fla.; O. L. Burgoon, Dallas; and R. I. and J. E. Burgoon of Estelle. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. Ann Cates of Justin and one brother, Eulin Boals of Rogers, Mo. Twenty-six grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren and one great great grandchild also survive.
     Funeral services were held at the Methodist church in this city Monday afternoon. Rev. J. C. Marshall, local pastor, assisted by Rev. W. C. Dennis read the service. Special music for the occasion was rendered by the choir, which included a solo "Some Day" by the choir director J. T. Yeager. The many beautiful floral offerings which surrounded the casket, attested the love and esteem in which Mrs. Burgoon was held by her neighbors and friends.
     The flower girls for the occasion were Terressa Bounds, Mary Elizabeth Burgoon, Louise Lucas, Alleen Motley, Juanita Lucas, Lotas Motley, Opal Burgoon and Christene Cook.
     The pall bearers, grandsons of the deceased were Reid Lucas, H. T. Burgoon, Lenville Crawford, Morgan Bounds, Guy Lucas, Carl Harris.
     Honorary pall bears: Jet Jenkins, Dr. W. D. Gilbert, Dr. Copeland, Jim McCormick, Walter Trigg, Les Borah, Bill Harrington, Jake Good, George Bushong, Alex Wood, Ben Citon, N. O. Chenneworth, Henry Lipscomb, Clinton Bushong, Rev. J. R. Atchley, Max Micheal, Miles Buchanan, Bryant Harrington, H. Kenemer, Tom Haley, John Taylor, Mr. Eden, John Powers, Chas. Rogers, Rev. C. M. Ward, Ike Alexander, Hugh Lucas, Bob Hardin, Chas. Dennis, Walter Hughes, L. O. Turner, Bill Reed, Cooper Reed, Rev. A. A. Kidd, J. T. Yeager, Eddie Andrews.
     Out of town guests who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Max Michael, Wichita Falls; Mr. and Mrs. Watt Andrews, Kellar; Ed Andrews, Dallas; Will Andrews, Fort Worth; Mr. and Mrs. N. O. Chenneworth, Dallas; Bud Deen, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Bull, Mrs. Lynn, Dallas; Kate Wood, Denton; Alex Woods, Dallas; Mrs. Nona Duncan, Dallas; Mrs. R. B.

FOR BLACK HELD IN
TODORA SLAYING

     A 27-year-old negro woman was placed in jail Monday noon, pending investigation of a story she told before the grand jury earlier in the morning, which tended to establish an alibi for Walter Curtis, negro, charged with the murder of Mrs. Irene Todora, who was shot to death at the Todora grocery store on Cochran street the night of March 29.
     The grand jury was expected to take some action on Curtis' case Monday, but the report of the probers was postponed until Tuesday.
     The negro woman swore before the probers that Curtis spent the night at her house on March 29, remaining there from 9 p. m. until 8 o'clock the next morning.
     Curtis is in the county jail. He has been positively identified by Todora, the Italian grocer, as the black who held him up in his store and then shot his wife to death.

JAIL RIOT AND
MURDER CASES
SLATED MONDAY

     Defendants in two Dallas murder cases and fourteen cases resulting from the rioting and mobbing of a negro at Sherman last May, are set for trial in the two criminal district courts here for Monday morning.
     A special venire of 125 has been summoned for the murder cases in Judge Grover Adams' court. In these cases, Antonio Adamez and Lupe Martinez, Mexicans, are to be arraigned for the slaying of J. T. Davis, Mesquite constable, last July 1.
     Arturo Sanchez, another Mexican, was tried three weeks ago in connection with the shooting of Davis and was sentenced to serve ninety-nine years in prison. His case is now in the process of being appealed. Jesus Bustos, a fourth Mexican alleged to have participated in the murder of Davis, is still at large.
     Both the Adamez and Martinez cases are set for trial Monday, and it could not be determined in advance, which of the pair will be tried first. G. DeGraffenreid is attorney for Martinez, while Adamez will be defended by W. P. Martin. Assistant District Attorney Jimmy MacNicoll will conduct the prosecution.

...

     Constable Davis was shot to death on a lateral road near Mesquite after he and his partner, Gardner Jones, had apprehended four Mexicans in the act of stripping a stolen automobile. After loading the four prisoners into their car to drive them to the Dallas county jail, the Mexicans rebelled, and during a struggle, one of the Mexicans shot and mortally wounded Davis. They all escaped, but three of them were later arrested and identified by Deputy Jones.
