December 02, 1885, Mifflintown, Juanita County, Pa
Wednesday morning at 6' o'clock Mrs Sophronia Draim wife of Henry Draim, Jr., who lives at the corner of third and Hickman, died of the immediate effects of dropsy. She was gently placed in her coffin, and the time of the funeral fixed at 10 o'clock Thursday. The funeral however was postponed, because there seemed to be no evidence that she was dead but merely in a trance. She was examined by Dr. Beaver, who attended on her, and no symptoms of moisture could be determined on glass held at her mouth and nose. The flesh of her arm baked under a hot iron like dead flesh, instead of blistering like live flesh, but yet her joints were quite flexible, her nostrils refused to remain closed and her fingers and neck were not purple as in real death.
Late Thursday evening Dr. Beaver examined the body again
and pronounced her dead. Her general appearance in the coffin was that
of one dead. She was advanced in gestation, and this may have caused
her relaxed condition. She was thought to have and internal cancerous
trouble which was supposed to have been caused by a pin she swallowed
when young. Ten minutes before she died she called for her husband
but, she was unable to speak to him. She was conscious up to within a
few minutes of her death. It is said that some internal eruption
occurred before she died, and oozed slightly from her mouth and nose.
All things considered, it cannot be said that she passed into a
trance. Sophronia died Nov 6, 1889

Kenneth M. Waggoner II: Vincennes man dies in Saturday accident Staff report
A Vincennes man was killed Saturday in a two-vehicle accident on U.S. 41 just north of the Ind. 61 overpass in the construction site zone, according to a Knox County Sheriff's Department release.
Shortly before 3 a.m. Saturday Kenneth M. Waggoner II, 29, 17 Benjamin Lane, was driving a white car southbound on U.S. 41 when he lost control, crossed the center line and struck a pickup truck traveling northbound in the opposite lane, according to the Knox County Sheriff's Dept. Jonathon Moore, 25, Vincennes, was a passenger in the car and was taken along with Waggoner first to Good Samaritan Hospital and then to Deaconess Hospital in Evansville due to critical injuries. Waggoner was pronounced dead at 7:58 a.m. by the Vanderburgh County coroner. Moore's status is not currently known Luke Anderson, Oaktown, the driver of the pickup, was treated at the scene for injuries and released. The accident is still under investigation and further details will be released at a later time, according to a release.
Vincennes residents Leroy Bud Reitmeyer
and Marlena Stein along with Stein's two oldest
grandchildren were killed Sunday night in a plane crash near near
Albany, Ga. According to Georgia State Police, Reitmeyer's
single-engine Beechcraft Bonanza went down in the Worth County
countryside, northeast of Albany in rural southwest Georgia, about
4:30 p.m. EDT. The wreckage was strewn across a five-mile area. The
plane was heading back from Florida and was scheduled to land at the
Lawrenceville-Vincennes Airport. Stein is a well-known nurse
practitioner who ran the Community Family Health Center on N. Seventh
St. The grandchildren were both in their mid to late teens. Though
their names had not yet been released, the two were the children of
Stein's son, Toby Church, and lived in Indianapolis. A number of
"good-size thunderstorms" rolled across the southern part of the
state, south of Macon, Sunday afternoon and evening, said Sgt. Greg
Mercier, with the Georgia State Patrol's aviation division. The crash
was still being investigated by state police and the National
Transportation Safety Board. The bodies were taken to the Georgia
Bureau of Investigation Crime Lab in Moultrie, Ga. According to a
report from the Associated Press, Reitmeyer radioed a Jacksonville,
Fla. airport and said he was having problems. That was the last anyone
heard from the plane before it went down. Mid-American Air Center
manager Kurtis Schwartz was notified of the tragedy at 10:45 p.m. (CT)
Sunday, and was told the plane crashed somewhere in rural Georgia.
"The state police called and told me the plane belonging to Bud
Reitmeyer had gone down and all four passengers were lost," said
Schwartz of the man who served on the board governing the Mid-American
Air Center since 1972. "Bud was dedicated to aviation and he brought
his engineering skills and expertise in developing plans at the
airport and he will be sadly missed." Owner of CLR Construction,
Reitmeyer was also an accomplished pilot, and dedicated to aviation,
said Rabb Emison, former city attorney for Vincennes. "Bud's was a
case of a man who learned his business and succeeded in it," Emison
said. "His long service on the board shows his dedication to public
service, and his nature was careful. He wouldn't have been hot-dogging
in the air." Reitmeyer served the longest on the board of the Bi-State
Authority longer than any other, said chairman Frank Buttermore. "He
was loaded with what they call common sense, and when we had problems,
he came up with an answer," Buttermore said. "The crash had to be a
failure on the aircraft because if there had been anyway for him to
overcome it he would have done it. He was considered a pretty safe
pilot." Engaged to Reitmeyer, Stein was also known for her dedication
to the community and her patients. "She was very dedicated and we went
to nurses training together," said Cheryl Buss, a fellow nurse
practitioner. "She definitely loved what she does, and she took a lot
of patients who had no insurance or money to pay." Funeral
arrangements for all four are being handled by Goodwin Funeral Home,
Sixth and Broadway streets in Vincennes.
Bill G. Moore, 58, Robinson, died at
7:43 p.m. Thursday at Crawford Memorial Hospital, after the van he was
driving collided head-on with a pickup truck on Ill. 33 about a mile
west of Robinson. According to Illinois State Police, the accident
occurred at 3:20 p.m. as Moore's van was eastbound on Ill. 33. A
pickup truck driven by Warren J. Snow, 49, Oblong, was westbound on
Ill. 33. Moore's van crossed the center line and struck Snow's pickup
truck head-on in the westbound lane. Both Moore and Snow were taken to
Crawford Memorial Hospital for treatment, where Snow remained today.
Police said Moore was not wearing a seat belt. Snow was wearing his. Police continue to investigate the accident.
Born in Vincennes, Moore returned to Knox County after his discharge from the U.S. Army, where he was a military policeman stationed in Germany. He worked as a Vincennes Police officer, later moving to Crawford County, Ill., where he was an officer with the Robinson Police Department and a deputy for the Crawford County Sheriff's Department. He had last worked in the powder room at Fair-Rite Corp., before becoming disabled and retiring.
The search for a missing Vincennes Woman
The search for a missing Vincennes woman ended Tuesday when her body was recovered in flood water near North Fork Creek, a rural area where her submerged car was found earlier in the day. The suspected cause of death is drowning. The body of Lois C. Green, 64, 501 Hart St., was recovered by Jasper County rescue workers at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to Sheriff Ed Francis. Authorities had to search on foot in waist-high water after a search by helicopter failed. Green's vehicle was apparently swept off the road by flooded creek water. Her car was spotted around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday, submerged in water near Jasper County Road 2000 N, near the Jasper/Crawford county line. It was unoccupied when searched by authorities from Crawford and Jasper counties. Green was reported missing by her son, Andrew Green, around 6:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Vincennes Police Department. She was on her way to Casey, Ill. and was suspected missing when she did not arrive. Authorities say Green was employed as a courier for Union Planters Bank and delivered paperwork for payrolls to businesses in Vincennes, Robinson and Casey. She was on her way to Casey from Robinson when she was overtaken by the water, according to Crawford County police. It is unknown why Green was traveling on county roads. She was pronounced dead Tuesday by Jasper County Coroner Jason Myers. An autopsy was scheduled today in Evansville. The search for Green was conducted throughout the day by the Jasper County Sheriff's Department, Jasper County Emergency Services Disaster Assistance, Yale Fire Department, Prairie Licking Fire Department, Crawford County Rescue, Crawford County Sheriff's Department, the Air Evac Helicopter and volunteers.
A Vincennes man died Tuesday after suffering a heart
attack while changing the oil on his car. Vincennes firefighters and
Emergency Medical Service personnel responded to an emergency medical
call at 10:27 a.m. Tuesday, at the home of Raymond Paul
Cummins, 64, 1422 Prairie St. Cummins wife, Billie, called
the fire department when she noticed Cummins, who was changing the oil
on the couple's car, was not moving or responding, said Fire Chief
Mike Siewers. EMS technicians found Cummins had suffered from a heart
attack while under the vehicle. They unsuccessfully administered CPR,
Siewers said. Authorities initially feared the car had fallen on
Cummins but found the vehicle still elevated by a jack when they
arrived on the scene.
