Mary Katherine McDanell Lowe tells me: “The picture you have of Bill McDanell standing by the wrecked car is my father, Everett McDanell. He was 8 years younger than Uncle Bill. If you notice he is wearing a mechanic cap, which I have seem him wear. He, Everett, later owned and operated the Sparta Garage. He worked for my Uncle Bill McDanell.”

“In 1877, Martin H. Phipps, a well-to-do farmer of Gallatin County, Ky., almost insane because of a wayward daughter, left his home and family, determined to be a wanderer the remainder of his life. His family made every effort to ascertain his whereabouts, but were unsuccessful and gave him up for dead. A few days ago his son, still residing on the old farm with his mother, saw in the daily paper that M. H. Phipps of Shelbyville, Ill., had been allowed a pension as a Mexican veteran. He arrived here yesterday and found his long-lost father an inmate of the poorhouse. Phipps is now 77 years of age.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch, June 12, 1888

An early promotional flier for Attorney and Judge Ward Yager, of Warsaw, 1927

Going to the court house to see and hear people make excuses to try to get out of jury
duty with Judge Yager was, literally, a spectator sport in Gallatin County.
 Excusing people from jury duty wasn't something the good judge took kindly to, though
he dealt with it with great aplomb; word is, it was a sight to behold.

Judge Yager's piece from the1930 Boone County Recorder Historical Edition is here.
