PAYNE.  Caleb Christian. September 21, 2001-October 21, 2001. Beloved son of Lucius and Theresa Garside Payne, went to be with the Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday, October 21, 2001. Though his life on earth was less than nine months from conception to death, Caleb touched the lives and hearts of many. Even in the womb, Caleb was always the busy one, kicking and raising his hands high as if he were praising God. Ultrasounds showed Caleb positioned head down eager to be born which meant his twin brother's head was frequently subjected to Caleb's energetic kicks. Caleb's investigative nature was documented via ultrasound when he rotated and flipped around 180 degrees to put himself nose to nose, face to face with his twin brother Joshua. We will never know what they communicated to one another, however, when Caleb returned to his customary position, he placed his feet on the other side of his mother's womb so he would no longer kick his brother in the head. After fighting his way though a miracle delivery, Caleb, affectionately known as "Little big brother' spent all but the last 24 hours of his life in the Sacred Heart Intensive Care Nursery in Pensacola where he and Joshua became popular favorites. His affectionate and loving heart was demonstrated in many ways including holding his twin brother's hand at 2 days of life, hugging his brother as they fell asleep and reaching out to reassure himself his "Big little brother' was still there. Though in the Bible, Joshua and Caleb went together in to the Promised Land, Caleb preceded his twin, Joshua Jabez and parents, Lucius and Theresa, to the eternal Promised Land. Also surviving are his grandparents, Ron and Marilyn Phillips and Mary Payne along with a host of loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Though we miss Caleb and are disappointed not to share our lives with him, we know he is in a place far better than we can imagine. We also know this is not the end of Caleb's life. We know we will see him again one day. Caleb ws preceded in death by his grandfather, Lucius Payne, Sr. Faith Chapel Funeral Home South 100 Beverly Pkwy, is in charge of arrangements in Pensacola. The funeral service will be 11 A.M. Saturday, October 27, 2001 at Brownsville Assembly of God in Pensacola, FL with the Rev. Neuman Tye officiating.

PEIRSON, Meshack - OBITUARY OF MESHACK PEIRSON - "The Shelby News", September 1, 1847
Old Soldier Buried with the Honors of War
Another veteran of the Revolution is gone. Mr. Meshack Peirson, one of the immortal band who devoted their all to the cause of their country in the honorable struggle for independence, expired at his residence near Christiansburg , Shelby County, Ky, on Sunday evening the 15th inst., at a very advanced age. He was the second of three twin brothers, Shadrack, Meshack, and Abednigo- all whom enlisted in the service of their country. The youngest fell in battle, the two eldest removed to this State at an early period, and were, for many years, citizens of this county. The eldest died several years ago. The second, under the blessings of a kind
Providence has lived to enjoy the fruits of his own toils, and see the truth of the principles advocated by the founders of this glorious Republic fully realized. The citizens of the neighborhood and county, on learning the fact of his decease, manifested a desire to inter the remains of the old soldier with the honors of war, as a last tribute of respect to one of the fathers of his country; for which purpose the necessary arrangements were accordingly made. The funeral escort consisted of the officers of the 18th Regiment and also officers from Henry, a small company of light infantry commanded by a Mr. W. Findley, the Kentucky Cavalry commanded by Capt. W.Y. Thompson, and a portion of Capt. S.H. Myles' company of Shelby Cavalry, all under the command of Col.J. W. Shean. The military met at Christiansburg early on Tuesday morning the inst. and proceeded thence about four to the residence of the deceased; where the procession being formed and the corpse received, it moved on horseback at about 12 p.m. to Indian Fork about five miles distant, in the following order:
John Steedman, Marshall
1. Officers of the 18th, and adjoining regiments
2. A company of light infantry
3. The hearse containing the remains of the deceased, preceeded and followed by pall-bearers
4. The widow, chaplain, and relatives of the deceased
5. The companies of cavalry Capt. T.M. Hartford, Asst. Marshall Capt. Wm. Moore, Asst. Marshall
6. Ladies and gentlemen on horseback
7. Citizens in carriages
8. Gentlemen on horseback
The procession moved in double file to appropriate martial music and extended a mile in length, and numbered at least 1000 persons. On arrival of the procession at the church, where a very great number of people had collected, the military were dismounted, and the corpse conducted to the grave, where a very appropriate and impressive address was delivered by the Rev. Mr. Collard, in which he feelingly and eloquently alluded to the conduct of the deceased in periling his life in aiding to achieve the freedom of his county, and in assisting to plant
the tree of liberty, which has been his happy lot to see unfold itself, until now, it extended it's lofty branches from the shores of the great Atlantic to the mighty Pacific. After the conclusion of the address a short prayer was offered up to the throne of grace when the ceremonies were concluded by paying the usual military honors.
The greatest harmony and decorum prevailed throughout the whole of this solemn and imposing scene, and the immense concourse of citizens, numbering some 2000 at least, dispersed without the occurrence of anything to disturb the order of the occasion.

POGUE, John Crawford Jr., grandson of Henry Pogue, one of the founders of the former H. & S. Pogue department store in Cincinnati, died Jan. 31 of heart failure in Geyserville, Calif. He was 89. His son, Michael of Anderson Township, said his father left family in Cincinnati and California. "He will be remembered for his sweetness, sincerity and dignity - he was one of the last of the true gentlemen," Michael said. He attained the rank of captain in the Army Air Corps during World War II and was sent to Europe to develop the new U.S. Air Sea Rescue Forces. In Corsica, he was wounded on a mission and received a Unit Presidential Citation. In 1945, Mr. Pogue returned to Cincinnati and his wife, Helen Lunken. He went to work for Pogue's as vice president and divisional manager and helped it grow into one of the Midwest's premier department stores. "Just after the war, dad initiated the idea of creating branch stores in the suburbs to complement the downtown location, an idea that was way ahead of its time," said his daughter, Celeste Sanders of Indian Hill. Mr. Pogue served on the boards of the Cincinnati Country Day School and Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and was the chairman of the United Appeal Drive for Metropolitan Cincinnati in 1954. After his divorce in 1957, Mr. Pogue met and married Martha Dunn. They moved to northern California in 1959 where he worked for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. Later, he and his wife relocated to Geyserville. In addition to his son and daughter, survivors include wife, Martha; three other sons, John C. III of Ross, Calif., Sheldon of Topeka, Kan., Stephen of San Francisco; stepson, Robert Dunn of Bozeman, Mont.; 16 grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

PRESTON, James B., businessman and community leader, dies
James Boling Preston has spent most of his life comforting people in the community. On Sunday the community lost Preston when he died at the age of 87.  Preston, of 507 Boone Trail, died at Ephraim McDowell Regional Medical Center.  Preston was co-founder of Preston-Pruitt Funeral Home, and he founded an organization that helps parents who have lost children. He started the group, Compassionate Friends, after he lost a daughter, Saundra Kaye Preston, in a traffic accident 37 years ago. In December the group recognized him during its annual candlelight service when candles are lit in memory of children who have died. The group planted an evergreen tree near the children's playground at Millennium Park. "Sometimes Jimmy would be the only one there when he opened the doors for the meetings," said Shan Kihlman, who was interviewed in December. "He's been very faithful."
Mike Wilder, owner of Wilder Funeral Home in Perryville, remembers that Preston was one of the first people to visit he and his wife after they lost a child. Preston also gave Wilder his first job at a funeral home. "He was the funeral director's funeral director," Wilder said. "The thing I remember about Jimmy is that he was so insistent that you took care of the family's needs ... they came first ... " .  Preston co-founded Preston-Pruitt Funeral Home in 1958. He and George K. Pruitt bought the Thurman Funeral Home, and changed the name. He sold his interest, and retired from funeral service in 1981.
Preston started his work in funeral service as a teenager at Coyle Funeral Home in Perryville. In 1941 he became a licensed Funeral Director and was the youngest licensee in the state at that time. He and J. Elmer Sims of Harrodsburg opened the Sims-Preston Funeral Home in Perryville until he was called to service in World War II. He was a sergeant with the Army Medical Corps from 1943 to 1946 in the European Theatre with the 70th Infantry Division known as the "Trailblazers." He was awarded the European Victory Medal and a Bronze Star. When he came home to Perryville from World War II in February of 1946 Preston was looking for something to do.
"J.P. Harberson and myself came upon the idea that we'd like to have a garage," Preston said in a 1991 interview. "We bought an existing garage in Perryville and opened a Kaiser-Frazer dealership ... We operated that for about three years and then we bought the Ford garage in Perryville ..."  Stuart Powell, who owns Stuart Powell Ford and Mazda, knew Preston all his life, and called him "one of my very best friends." Both were from Perryville, and attended the same church. "He had a fondness for people. Never saw a stranger," Powell said. "He was just a joy to be with ... loved to sing ... he touched a lot of people." Preston often sang at weddings and funerals, and sang in a Barbershop Chorus of the Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Barbershop Quartet Singing in America for many years. He was also a choir member, former board member of the First Christian Church. Born June 8, 1917, in Perryville, he was the son of the late Joseph Lee and Sarah Katherine Boling Preston.  He was a graduate of Perryville High School, and Bryant-Stratton College of Business in Louisville. He is a member and past-president of the Danville Kiwanis Club, and was Kiwanian of the Year in 1997, and was a member of the Crowe Station Investment Club.
He served on the Boyle County Board of Health for 13 years, from 1984 to 1997, and was Boyle County coroner for four years. He has been on the boards of the Danville-Boyle County Historical Society and the American Cancer Soceity. He was also past president of the Danville Country Club. He is member of the Harvey Maguire Masonic Lodge No. 209, Perryville, and the Oleika Shrine Temple. He had been the current Chairman of the Community Development Agency, formerly Urban Renewal, and served on the board for 12 years. Survivors include his wife, Ada Carter Preston; two daughters, Mary Donna Broz of Rancho Mirage, Calif. and Jana Camille Franklin of Fayetteville, Ga.; a sister, Gertrude Reagan of Bethlehem, Pa.; a brother, William Francis Preston of Perryville and four grandchildren. Services will be 1 p.m. Thursday at First Christian Church by the Rev. William A. Curwood. Burial will be in Bellevue Cemetery.

Proffit, Randly L. :While digging drainage ditches for the future site of a Lowe's Home Center in Paintsville, Ky., 38-year-old Randy L. Proffitt of London was killed when the ditch collapsed, said Johnson County Coroner J. R. Frisby.    The official cause of death as reported by Frisby was "asphyxiation by the compression of the body by dirt from a ditch cave-in," he said.    "I've been the coroner here for the past sixteen years and I've only seen two ditch fatalities," Frisby said. "It doesn't happen very often. But I have read surveys that suggest ditch cave-ins are a common cause of accidents and deaths."  Proffitt was an employee of EMJ Corp. of Chattanooga, a contractor for the Lowe's Home Center project.    The emergency call came in around 11:35 a.m. on Monday morning, Frisby said. "When the EMS crews arrived, he was dead on the scene," he said.  ”It took about an hour and a half to recover the body."  11/5/2003  Vol 7, #43  Ronica Brandenburg, Somerset/Pulaski News Journal  Published October 04, 2003
