SAMUEL HARRIS AMOS

S B (Samuel Harris) Amos, Aged Grave Creek Man, Brutal Murder Victim State and County Police Disclose No Clues In Investigation of "Most Brutal Crime" In County History; No Suspects Held

Impelled to vigorous action by what they described as "the most brutal murder in recent Marshall county history," state troopers and county officers today pressed, without apparent immediate result, investigation into the weekend slaying of Samuel B Amos, 86 year old Marshall county retired farmer, at his Little Grave creek home.

The battered and knife-hacked body of Amos, who made his home with his daughter, Mrs Lester Sterling, was found bound, gagged and erect in a chair, police were told, when the Sterling family returned home Sunday evening at 6:40 o'clock from a weekend visit with relatives in Washington, PA.

The officers said today that no suspects have been arrrested. They would not discuss possible clues or theories. It was known, however, that several persons had been questioned. No one has been jailed, it was stated by deputy sheriffs.

Amos had been stabbed twice in the throat, one of the thrusts piercing his jugular vein. The time of the slaying has been set at "sometime Saturday Evening" by H B Ashworth, county coroner, state police said today.

Amos was last seen alive by the Sterling family about 1:30 or 2:00 o'clock Saturday afternoon, officials said, when the family prepared to go to Little Washington. The family included Mr and Mrs Lester Sterling, their two children and Mr Sterling's father and mother. Amos was invited to go on the weekend visit, members of the family told officers, but he declined , saying he had a cold. It was not until the family returned that the body of Amos was found.

From their investigation, local officers said they believed that Amos had been struck on the head with a flat iron or a heavy piece of wood while lying on his bed. A sheet from the bed was ripped and Amos was bound and gagged, officers believe. Further picturing the crime, police believe the body was moved to the chair and placed in a sitting position. The murderer or murderers then went into the kitchen, secured a paring knife from a cabinet drawer, and slashed Amos' throat.

From the position of the body in the chair, officers said that it would have been virtually impossible for Amos to have been bound while sitting upright. Amos left arm was bound behind his back, while his right arm was tied close to his right side.

No motive for the crime was advanced by investigating officers, but the theory of robbery was quickly discarded when $25 was found in Amos shirt pocket and his pocket watch and gold chain was found intact in his trousers pocket.

The house, except the bedroom where Amos was found, showed no signs of a struggle, officers said.

Amos was described as a quiet likeable man, believed to have had no enemies, officers said.

Various table articles, the flat iron and other articles that the murderer or murderers might have touched are being carefully protected for special investigation by officials of the criminal bureau of investigation at Charleston.

The house in which the murder occurred is a four room frame dwelling situated about 100 feet from the main road.

S. J. ANDERSON DIED THIS MORNING

Samuel J. Anderson, 80, of RD 1, Glen Easton, expired at 5:40 p.m. today, Tuesday, at Reynolds Memorial Hospital.

He was born April 2, 1890, at New Freeport, Pennsylvania, the son of James and Mary Bert(d)ine Anderson.

He was a retired school teacher and former superintendent of Marshall County Schools.

Mr. Anderson was the first county superintendent of schools under the County Unit system here.

He had been elected county superintendent under the old School District system, in about 1928, (his two immediate predecessors were H. E. Carmichael, and then J. Sherman Welch.) Under that system, some of the larger districts had their own individual superintendents, but all were under a general (elected) superintendents. Naturally, the district without individual superintendents required more attention from the general county man.)

Then, around 1932 or '33, the County Unit system came in, with just the general superintendent, appointed by the Board of Education. Mr. Anderson had two years of his term remaining, and thus served the first two years as superintendent of the county under the new system.

The late Louis R. Potts had been superintendent of Washington district, then became assistant to Mr. Anderson, before becoming general county superintendent.

It is interesting to note that Mr. Anderson was the first school teacher of Ernest McNinch, present county superintendent-at the old Rosen Berger school, Webster district.

LATER POSITIONS

S. J. Anderson had later been employed at the Unemployment Compensation Board of Wheeling, and most recently was an instructor at the W. Wa. Pennitentiary. He was a member of the Pleasant Valley Methodist Church. Survivors include his wife, Gail Bungard Anderson; five sons, Kenneth and Merle of Glen Easton, Carl (Sr.) of Glen Dale, Paul of RD 2, Moundsville, and John of Moundsville; two daughters, Mrs. Mildred Riley of Glen Easton and Mrs. Mary Dobbs of Moundsville; two brothers, Jess of Garrison, Pa., and Charles of St. Petersburg, Fla.; one sister Mrs. Arlie Himelrick of Terrill Ridge; 15 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.

One son preceded him in 1939.

Friends will be received at the Lutes Funeral Home today from 7-9 and Wednesday, 2-4 and 7-9. Funeral arrangements are incomplete.

ELIZABETH STANDIFORD ANGUISH

Christian Standard, 8 Aug. 1891

Elizabeth, wife of Elder W. Anguish died of heart disease, June 8 1891, at her home in Marshall County WV.

During all his suffering she cared for him with the tenderness and patients of a mother, blessed be God, he sorrows not as one having no hope.

CHARLIE ANSHUTZ

Obituary--It is with peculiar feelings of sorrow that we learn of the death of Charlie Anshutz, of Moundsville, which occurred at Pittsburgh on last Monday. Charlie was the youngest of a family well and widely known in the steamboat business of the Upper Ohio, and was a young man of great promise. Young, being scarcely 21 years old, and always having enjoyed most excellent health, his death will be a matter of surprise as well as sorrow to his numerous friends, and the friends of the family. He has for sometime past been engaged in the wholesale hardware store of Joseph Woodhull & Co., on Wood street, Pittsburgh, the junior member of the firm, William Woodhull, Esq., being his brother-in-law. In all the relations of life he displayed a manliness and integrity, and a justness and ability that secured him the respect and friendship of all with whom he became acquainted. Among all who knew him none will be found who will not hear with deep regret of his untimely death.

His death was the result of fever, brought on by a severe cold, contracted during the holidays. His burial took place at Moundsville yesterday, and was largely attended.
