Sam Goodloe, one of the colored drivers in the Reinecke mines, was killed yesterday  morning about 10 o’clock.  He was going down a grade in the mines with eight loaded cars when he suddenly threw brakes on the front car, causing the other cars to derail it; this threw him under the car which broke his neck.  Coroner Rodgers held the inquest.  July 20, 1894

Dr. Charles Park Peters, the son of Rev. and Mrs. T. C. Peters of the Methodist church, died at the parsonage last Wednesday morning at 5 o’clock, after an illness of about three weeks.  He lacked about two months of being twenty-five years of age.  He was unmarried and lived with his father.  Dr. Peters was a dentist and  had built up a splendid practice; this he had done by close attention to his business.  He had been a citizen of Madisonville about two years, and during his stay had made many friends.  On his deathbed and the day before he died, he fully realized his condition and was aware of the fact that he could not last much longer.  Although he had for several years led rather a wayward life, yet when brought to death’s door he calmly viewed the situation and to his father and mother expressed a full realization of his trust in the Savior.  He died happy in the belief of a better world.  His last hours were his brightest, happiest and best.  The funeral services were held at the Methodist church yesterday afternoon, after which the body was taken to the Odd Fellow’s cemetery where it was laid away to its final rest.  The aged parents are almost heart broken over their said bereavement, while a brother and sisters mourn the loss of a loved one.  July 27, 1894

Rev. T. C. Peters and wife left yesterday for Bowling Green where they will spend a while visiting their children.  His son, Professor Tim Peters, of McFerrin College, Tennessee, who was present at the funeral of his brother, Dr. Peters, left also at the same time for his home.  July 27, 1894
