JOHN McFERRAN

Wheeling Intelligencer - 26 Aug 1868

PASSING AWAY - Under its apropriate(sic) head in our colums (sic) this morning will be found announced the death of John McFerran, Esq. For many years a resident in this city. Mr. McFerran came to Wheeling about forty years ago from Baltimore, where he spent the earlier years of his life. When that city was menaced by the British forces under General Ross the subject of this brief notice belonged to a military company which bore an honorable part in resisting the advance of that proud and profane officer, and many of our citizens will remember with what pride Mr. McFerran was accustomed to refer to his participation in that memorable event. To the close of his life, we believe, he retained his membership in an organization formed in the city of Baltimore and known as the "Old Defenders," and before he became so enfeebled by age as to prevent his meeting with his old comrades in arms, he annually joined them in celebrating the victory they achieved. The State of Maryland, if we are not mistaken, acknowledged the value of the services rendered by the military company mentioned above by giving each one a certificate thereas(?) and paying them a pension.

One by one, and at short intervals, our old citizens are passing away. But yesterday the remains of Samuel Ott, Esq. were consigned to the tomb, and today at 2 o’clock the family and friends of Mr. McFerran will bear all that is mortal of him to the quiet and seclusion of Greenwood. Like his comptemary just mentioned, Mr. McFerran filled up the measure of days allotted to man on earth, and like him his departure leaves a void in the community not easily filled.

My notes on John McFerran:

Carol A. Scott’s "Marriage and Death Notices of Wheeling, WV and the Tri-State Area 1866-1870:
McFerran, John Esq. 23 Aug 1868 75 y, at his residence in North Wheeling, one of the defenders of Baltimore in 1812 (Baltimore papers please copy) Wheeling Intelligencer 25/26 Aug 1868

McFerran, John 23 Aug 1868, at his residence in North Wheeling from Daily Register 25 Aug 1868

John McFerran married Elizabeth Wright Moore who died 11 Feb 1865. Their children were Jane Bell McFerran who married 26 Mar 1845 Wheeling Assoc. Reform Church and Elizabeth Milton McFerran who married 21 Sep 1864 Edward Gilfellan of Parkersburg, WV.

John McFerran was named with his mother Jane as executor of his father, John McFerran’s Will 12 Jan 1820. John’s mother Jane died 09 Apr 1839.

John McFerran whose death notice I have typed in this article was the uncle of my great, great grandmother, Anna Dean Lyeth Carlin. Anna Dean Lyeth’s father, Samuel, fought with John McFerran in the War of 1812.

MR. MEDCALF

[Source: Wheeling Register, Wednesday, January 11, 1871]

FATAL AFFRAY.

An old man named Medcalf was shot and instantly killed by John Butcher, Saturday night, in a store at Kanawha station, on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Butcher ejected two of Medcalf's sons from a ball room a few nights previous, where they were behaving in a disgraceful manner. The next day one of them apologized to Butcher, but a few hours afterwards, when aided by his brother, he attacked Butcher, whom he met on horseback and severely cut him in the head with a rock. Butcher swore out a warrant and had the rascal bound over to keep the peace. Old Medcalf tried to persuade his son to disregard the bond, promising him fifty dollars if he whipped Butcher; but, failing to bring about a fight, he attacked Butcher himself, threatening to cut him open. Butcher retreated before his attack as far as the store would allow, and even got over the counter, but being followed up he shot Medcalf through the head and came down town and surrendered himself. His case comes up to-day.

1896-07-31 - Wheeling Register

MAJOR JOHN W. MITCHELL

Dead of the popular Clerk of the Circuit Court Yesterday afternoon.

He had been confined to his home on the island for about ten days and his death was not unexpected to those familiar with his condition-

A SKETCH OF A NOBLE CAREER.

Major John W. Mitchell, Clerk of the Ohio County, Circuit Court, and a man who perhaps had more personal friends and acquaintances than any other citizen of Ohio County, died at his residence No. 47 South Front Street, about half past one o'clock yesterday afternoon, in the fifty-eighth year of his age. His demise will be deplored from one end of the county to the other, for Major Mitchell's name was a household word from Ohio river to the Pennsylvania line, and from the borders of Brooke to those of Marshall. Everyone knew him, and most of those who knew him esteemed him for his many commendable qualities.

Major Mitchell came from pioneer family and descendent of good old revolutionary and border stock, his grandfather was Alexander Mitchell, who came to this region very soon after its first settlement by the whites, and who alternately fought Indians and aided in the early development of the surrounding country. He was a native of Pennsylvania, like many others of the first settlers of Wheeling. For a considerable time he was in Government employed as an Indian Scout. He married a Miss Kelley, and five sons and a daughter was the result of this union, one of these sons was Isaac W. Mitchell, who became a prominent citizen of this portion of the state, and was for eighteen years sheriff of this county, by purchase under the old Virginia law. He was also an extensive farmer and a large producer of wool. He married Miss Sallie White, daughter of John White and their children were Alexander, Zachariah J., Andrew W.; Samuel and John W.; the latter the subject of this sketch. John W. Mitchell was born December 31, 1838 in the small two story brick house still standing at the south west corner of Chapline and Eleventh Streets. He received his education at Mt. Olive N.J. and at a school maintained by the Episcopal Church at Alexandria, Va. Returning to Wheeling, he read law with the late Zachariah Jacob, his uncle, and was admitted to the bar.

In 1860 he was First Lieutenant of the Shriver Gray's a local crack military company, to which many of the young men of the best families of this city belonged, and at the outbreak of the war Lieutenant Mitchell went south with the majority of his company and entered the confederate army. He became a Lieutenant in the Twenty-Second Virginia regiment, attached to the Stonewall brigade, and fought through the war, mainly in the campaigns of Virginia. When he mustered out he bore the rank of major, obtained by distinguished and gallant conduct on the field.

Major Mitchell returned to Wheeling in 1865, and was soon appointed a deputy sheriff under sheriff Tingle, continuing in office for about two years under sheriff C. P. Brown. In December 1883, he was appointed Clerk of the Circuit Court, to fill the vacancy occasioned by the absence of the Clerk Samuel B. McColloch, and was twice re-elected. His term would have expired the coming spring.

Major Mitchell was married in 1865 to Miss H. Grace Woods a daughter of Andrew P. Woods. Four sons and one daughter were the result of this union, but one son, Albert Mitchell surviving.

Major Mitchell had been in indifferent health for some time and about a month ago returned from a visit to Cambridgeboro Springs Pa, where he had gone in the hopes of receiving benefit. He was at his office on the 16th inst. when he complained to some friends of not being as well as usual, he remained at his home the next day, but on the 18th again started for his office. On Market Street he slipped on an iron cellar door and fell heavily. He returned to his home, and has since been confined to his room although not all the time in bed. For several days past he has been losing ground, and yesterday morning his condition was such that it was evident but a few hours more of life remained. He died about half past one o'clock as stated above.

There was great sorrow about the City Hall and Court House yesterday when the sad fact became public. Appropriate action will be taken by the courts and by the bar of the county.
