Cincinnati Police Chief Deitsch ordered three of his best detectives to find and arrest Scott Jackson after getting the lowdown on the Pearl Bryan murder. Jackson was a student at the Ohio Dental College in Cincinnati, Ohio, at the time and they learned he lived in a boarding house at 222 West Ninth Street in the city.

He wasn’t in his living quarters so two of the lawmen took positions watching the street outside and the other went to Legner’s Tavern after learning it was one of his regular hangouts. Continue reading Pearl Bryan didn’t deserve it! part six

Pearl Bryan’s former beau Scott Jackson made some sudden changes in his life in summer of 1895. He was trying to escape responsibility.

He dropped off the face of the earth as far as Pearl Bryan was concerned. She had difficulty in finding where he was and when she eventually did he wouldn’t see her or answer her messages. He had transferred from the Indiana College of Dentistry to the Dental College of Ohio, in Cincinnati.

Several weeks later she wrote Scott saying in parlance of the day that she “had made a discovery.” News that she was pregnant didn’t beckon a red letter day for Scott. He wasn’t ready to change his lifestyle or to have a regulated life. Continue reading Pearl Bryan didn’t deserve it! part five

Even when she was blind and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, Lucille Page was able to check her grandchildren’s work when they made a quilt.

“It was amazing to see,” said her grandson, Trevor Bean, of Tompkinsville. “She used her hands to see if I did it the correct way.”

Quilting was a family tradition in Page’s family and she made sure to pass it along to her 10 grandsons and five granddaughters. Quilts marked significant points in the family life like a birth or marriage. “There was always quilting going on in her house,” Bean said.

Traveling overland by train, tracking down leads to an inane murder back on his home turf… it was totally different from his duties leading up to this point in his police work. Upon arriving in Greencastle, Indiana, he and the two Cincinnati detectives, Crim and McDermott, set out for the Louis and Hays Department Store, hoping to solve another piece of the puzzle. Who was the deceased young lady who was found in his jurisdiction and what else could they learn to solve her atrocious murder. Continue reading Pearl Bryan didn’t deserve it! Part 3
