BRULE COUNTY

SOMERS, BRADLEY N., age 23 years, born in Canada, died in February by murder.

SOMERS, MARVIN H., age 47 years, born in Canada, died in February by murder. In the Yankton "Press and Dakotan" of February 16, is the following pertaining to the career of "Jim Somers": "Jim Somers," as he is popularly known, though his real name is Marvin H. Somers, has been a figure more or less prominent in the history of southern Dakota since the first settlers pitched their tents west of the Big Sioux. It was about twenty years ag-o that he settled in what is now Union county and became a part of a congregation of western adventurers who located on Sioux Point. In the first legislature of Dakota he was chosen as sergeant-at-arms of one of its branches, and our recollection is that he was subsequently elected as a member of the legislature from Union County. A few years afterwards he moved from Union county and located on the Missouri somewhere above Yankton and subsequently moved to the spot now known as Brule City. His reputation in those early days was that of a man who would rather fight than do anything else, and it was not considered safe to aggravate his feelings. He was particularly noted for his muscular prowess, but he did not hesitate to resort to the revolver whenever it seemed appropriate so to do. It was in the fall of 1869 that Jim Somers came to Yankton from the upper country and while here enjoyed himself in the usual way going from saloon to saloon and drinking with the boys. During his perambulations he became boisterous and ugly and one of his drunken freaks was the shooting of a pony which was tied to a post on Broadway. For this offense George Black, who was then sheriff of Yankton County, attempted to arrest him, and in the melee which ensued Somers shot Black, crippling him for life. There was at that time considerable hostility in this community against Black, and through the supposed connivance of some of the enemies of the sheriff, Somers was permitted to escape to the wild region in which he had made his home. Black recovered and Somers was never arrested for the offense. He kept away from Yankton for a number of years, but finally ventured back and finding himself unmolested has since made Yankton frequent visits and has conducted himself in an orderly and gentlemanly manner. He has frequently asserted of late that it was his desire to lead a peaceable and orderly life and to take part in the avocations of the civilization which had overtaken his wilderness home. Still he was never able fully to control the bad that was within him and there are men in the upper country who felt that his hostility endangered their personal safety. At the organization of Brule County, last fall "Jim" Somers was appointed by the governor as one of the county commissioners and at the subsequent election he was chosen to the same position, which he held at the time of his death.

This is the official record of the death "with his boots on", of Jim Somers, sergeant-at-arms of the first Dakota Legislature and one of the most notable desperadoes of his time, as published in the Yankton "Press and Dakotan" for Feb. 18, 1880:

A correspondent at Brule City sends us the official report of the proceedings of the jury summoned by Coroner Refsnider to enquire into the cause of the death of Marvin H. Somers, alias Jim Somers. Our correspondent states that at one o'clock on the afternoon of the 13th inst. an encounter took place between Marvin H. Somers and his nephew, Bradley N. Somers, which resulted in the death of both, the uncle shooting the nephew and the nephew, after he had received his death wound, shooting" his uncle and killing' him instantly. Marvin H. Somers fired only one shot, from a rifle, and Bradley H. Somers fired two shots, from a revolver, the second shot taking effect. The following evidence before the coroner and the dying statement of the murdered nephew give a concise account of the bloody affair:

Lafayette Somers, being sworn, testified: I am acquainted with the deceased; I am his brother; I had a filing on the same piece of land he did; there has been a contest which is undecided; I concluded I had as good a right, if not better, than M. H. Somers; in September or October I placed logs on the same claim; I put the logs on to build a house from; the logs were left undisturbed up to January 1st, 1880; I discovered this morning that the logs had been removed; I hauled more logs today; my boy informed me before I was through my dinner that someone was hauling away my logs; my son Bradley and I hitched my horses up and drove up; Marvin H. Somers came running towards us with the gun; he struck the horses; he struck at them and pushed them and then Bradley got off the wagon; I took the reins and he struck Bradley with the gun; Bradley warded the blow with a wagon stake and then Marvin H. Somers shot Bradley; Bradley said, "My God, father! I'm shot;" Bradley did not raise the muzzle of the revolver; M. H. Somers said he would shoot us; when he shot Bradley he hurried around and pointed the gun at me and tried to extract the shell; Bradley shot twice and shot M. H. Somers.

Melvin R. Somers, being duly sworn, says: I am a nephew of the deceased; I knew that M. H. Somers had pre-emption papers on the same claim; I worked for M. H. Somers; I went down on the claim to-day with him to move some logs; he started away with his gun; I helped load some logs that was piled up, H. Williams assisting; I saw Lafayette Somers and Bradley Somers coming up toward where we were loading logs; M. H. Somers met them and told them to come no farther; I was sitting down when the wagon got there; when the wagon stopped I got up and stood still; I will swear I did not fix the logs for a barricade; when the first shot was fired I came toward the corn; he made threats if anyone tried to stop him taking the logs he might as well die as to live in that way; I said to him that he'd better not go; he said, "Go and harness the team."

W. H. Williams, being duly sworn, says: I am acquainted with Marvin H. Somers; I am not working for him today; I was working for Mr. Pilger; I came down after a log chain; I met M. H. Somers on the road; I said, "Jim, what are you going to kill?" he said, "I am not going to kill anybody;" he asked me to go with him; I said, "No, I can't, I came down to borrow a log chain;" "Oh!" he said, "you might as well come on;" "No," I said, "I am in a hurry;" he said, "Come on, I won't be but a few minutes;" he did not tell me where he was going or anything about it; we walked along and the team overtook us; he said, "Get on and ride;" we drove up to those logs south of the cornfield, and I said, "Jim, are these your logs?" he said, "Yes, help put them on;" so I helped him put them on one load; then we saw Lafayette Somers coming. Jim said, "Now we will have some fun; I expect they will order me off, then I will order them off;" he did not appear angry; he threw the logs down and he took off his hat, coat and cartridge belt and laid them down; I did not see him take any cartridges from the belt; he ran down to meet the team; he told them to stop; Lafayette told Bradley to drive on; so M. H. Somers commenced punching the horses with the gun; then Bradley jumped off and grabbed a wagon stake from the wagon, then Lafayette said, "Come on, Bradley, there is a sheriff here and we will have him arrested;" Marvin H. Somers said something to Bradley, I could not hear what, when Bradley said, "You old son of a bitch, I will knock the face off you;" M. H. Somers attempted to strike Bradley with the gun; then M. H. Somers shot him, and he fell and said, "I am shot," a number of times; Lafayette said, 'Poor Bradley, he is shot now;" I thought M. H. Somers was trying to extract the shell; when he started to run Bradley shot him; I was at the upper end of the breaking when I heard the firing; I did not run away; did not make a remark to a person; I did not realize the intention of the said M. H. Somers, if he had any; I understand logs are property and was M. H. Somers' property; I did not offer to assist in any way; I was opposite the logs.

Melburn R. Somers recalled: Marvin H. Somers ordered them not to drive on said premises; Lafayette said, "Drive on and never mind him;" he stopped the team with his gun; he punched them with his gun; Bradley Somers then got off from the wagon; they had some words and Jim struck at him with the gun; then Bradley raised the stake he had in his hand and they came together; Bradley struck at Jim, with the stake; he called him some name and said he would knock the head off of him; Marvin H. Somers then fired and Bradley fell; he was not on the wagon; he rolled around on the ground, crying out "Father, I am shot;" Jim was trying to extract the empty shell; Bradley then fired two shots; Jim was running this way, coming sideways.

W. H. Myers, being duly sworn, says: I was about sixty rods from where the tragedy occurred; I saw Marvin H. Somers stop the team; I heard no conversation; saw motions after the team had partly turned around; I think they were all off the wagon; M. H. Somers raised his gun to strike the other party; Brad, pulled a stake from the wagon to guard the blows; a moment later they were a short ways apart; M. H. Somers drew up his gun in firing position; my impression is that the gun did not go off the first time; he drew it up the second time and fired, "when Brad. Somers fell; Brad, was standing on the ground when shot; Brad, turned over on his side and fired two shots; M. H. Somers fell at the first shot; he was not running when the first shot was fired; I went to where the body lay immediately after the shots were fired; Marvin H. Somers was dead when I got there; I helped take Brad, down to the house, with his father; I came back afterwards to the scene of the homicide; I heard no conversation by persons present at the homicide'. This closed the testimony before the coroner's jury and after consultation they returned "justifiable homicide" as their verdict.

"Territory of Dakota, Brule County, ss. An inquisition holden at the residence of Mary Somers, in Brule county, territory aforesaid, on the 13th day of February, 1880, before George Refsnider, coroner, of said county, upon the body of Marvin H. Somers, there lying dead, by the jurors whose names are hereto subscribed: The said jurors upon their oaths do say, that Marvin H. Somers came to his death by a shot from a revolver in the hands of B. N. Somers in defense of his father, after he, B. N. Somers, was shot by deceased, M. H. Somers; and that the shooting of of M. H. Somers by B. N. Somers was justifiable."

D. W. Spalding, P. R. Hartt, F. W. Hemenway, Jurors.

The following is the dying statement of Bradley N. Somers, given as testimony, the oath having previously been administered by Coroner Refsnider: "James Somers was stealing logs; James Somers met Lafayette Somers and I with the horses; after Lafayette started to come home, Jim drew his gun, and fired; the first shot struck me; I then fired two shots; then Lafayette turned to come home; I fired to save father's life."

LANPHERE, GEORGE, age 24 years, born in Wisconsin, died in June by murder. The date of this murder is erroneously given in the census. It occurred on July 4, 1879. A party of four, consisting of Silas Beebe, George Lanphere and Messrs. Williams and Commack, all of Virginia township, Union County, were out on Crow Creek, above the Indian agency, looking for claims. There had been some dispute between Beebe and Lanphere; when noon came, they stopped and took their dinners. Lanphere laid down on a blanket and went to sleep. Beebe took a rifle from the buggy and deliberately shot him. He was convicted and sentenced to be hanged, but the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment by President Hayes.

CAMP, JACKSON, age 30 years, born in Ohio, died in April; shot sparking another man's wife.

In the Yankton "Press and Dakotan" for May 18, 1880, Mr. R. B. Dear, mail contractor for whom Jackson Camp was driving at the time of the fatality, contributes the following information:

Jackson Camp was shot and killed at Rosebud Landing by James Loomer. Being at Ft. Robinson, some three hundred miles west of here, [Rosebud Landing] at the other end of my route, I was dispatched [informed?] of Mr. Camp's death and made the trip through in two days and nights. I immediately commenced to enquire into the cause of his death. I first learned that Mr. James Loomer had married a Miss Sherman about eight years ago, and that during their married life they had been separated three different times, caused by some family troubles, and had not lived together more than four years out of the eight. The last separation between Mr. Loomer and his wife was January last, at which time I can say and substantiate by all parties at the landing, that Mr. Camp had never spoken to Mrs. Loomer three times in his life, that he did not know her at all at the time Mr. Loomer claims that he (Camp) began to cause his wife to speak of leaving him; and furthermore, sufficient proof can be brought to bear at this place, by all who knew Mr. Camp, that he never visited Mr. Loomer's family more than four or five times before or since their separation up to the time he was killed. Mr. Loomer, who had spoken frequently in the presence of a number of gentlemen in a very disrespectful manner of his wife, since their last separation, and who possessed a very jealous and distrustful disposition, happened to see Mr. Camp speaking to his wife in the presence of others at Mr. Lowe's. He waited until Camp had started back to cross the river with the mail and assailed him with a drawn revolver and abused him for everything he could think of, while he (Camp) was entirely defenseless, having no weapons of any kind with him at the time. On his return to the landing to resent the insult that had been tendered him by Mr. Loomer, he sent him word to keep out of his way, as he would kill him on sight. To show whether the deed was premeditated or not on Mr. Loomer's part, he called at Mr. Wm. Huston's, on Hirman Wood Island, opposite the landing, and asked him to loan him his rifle that he "wanted to kill Jack Camp. Mr. Huston's refusing caused him to be very angry and he left, afterwards procuring a revolver from someone unknown to me yet and concealing himself in a little log cabin near Mr. Charles Lowe's, until Mr. Camp came over with the mail. As he was transferring the mail from one side of the river to the other and was on his way from the river bank to Mr. Charles Lowe's, after passing the cabin a few steps, Loomer made his appearance in the door with a cocked revolver leveled on Camp, at the same time ordering him to throw up his hands. Camp then threw the mail sack from his right shoulder to his left, as he turned to see who it was that spoke, and at that instant Loomer fired and killed him almost instantly. He stated that he thought Camp was reaching for his revolver, when perhaps (seeing the advantage that Loomer had taken of him and the situation he was placed in at that time) he never cared or thought of his revolver.

From the facts that I can gather from the whole affair, and which I "will endeavor to prove when his trial comes off, it was a premeditated and cold blooded murder, and I feel it is my duty for the faithful service he has done me and to do justice to the dead, as well as his friends and relations, who are a long way off, to see that the instigator of this serious crime gets his just punishment for the deed he has committed. If he should not be sufficiently condemned for the crime of murder, I have preferred charges against him, through Special Agent Furay, at Omaha, for stopping the mail.

DONAHUE, CORNELIUS, age 46 years, born in Pennsylvania, died in July by homicide, (occupation, "Road Agent"). This was the notorious

"Lame Johnny." He was of a cultured family of Philadelphia and was himself a graduate of Girard College. He was a competent civil engineer and excelled as a bookkeeper. In his infancy he fell from a horse and received injuries which caused permanent lameness. He went to Texas and by diligence accumulated a fine lot of cattle and horses which were all run off in a single night by the Comanche. He set out to recover his stock and so acquired a taste for desperate adventure and finally became a notorious highwayman. On the night of June 20, 1879, Johnny held up the down coach from Deadwood to Sidney and secured but a few trifles. He was captured and hanged by vigilantes in July, 1879, at the point where he robbed the coach.
