Son's depression blamed in tragedy

Friends shocked at 'close family'

by Mark Thien

Dickson - Hard working, caring, and devout churchgoers, Elaine and Larry Toy had raised a family of outstanding quality, friends and relatives say.
"They prayed together, and played together," Lois Sanders said of the four Toys. "They would plan things together. They were a very close family."
And despite a weekend tragedy - in which a chemical imbalance is said to have led 23-year-old Clinton Toy to shoot his parents to death with a shotgun Saturday morning - the family will stay close as ever, one relative said.
"We don't hate Clinton," said David Peeler, the county schools superintendent and brother to Elaine Toy. "We know he would never have done something like this were he in his right mind."
Doctors discovered Clinton Toy's chemical imbalance in 1987. The problem caused him to feel depressed but was controlled with medication. It was the only drug Clinton Toy ever tried, Sanders said.
"Centainly no drugs or alcohol," she said. "He woulldn't even drink caffeine."
But, recently Toy told his mother, who was 45, he did not feel well and could not sleep at night. Elaine Toy stayed awake with her son two nights, rubbing his back to help him fall asleep, Peeler said.
"Then, for one reason or another, things went bad," said Dickson poilce detective Ray Clark.
Clinton Toy shot his 46-year-old father in a bedroom, his mother in the kitchen. Police said nothing that they know of sparked the incident, and family members said Clinton turned erratic and irrational just before shooting.
He was taken to Middle Tennessee Mental Helath Institute in Nashville for observation, Clark said. Charges are pending
His older sister, Jennifer Toy, 25, had just left the family's Dickson home about 15 minutes before the shooting for work at the Bellevue Center.
"Usually, these things involve bad people," Clark said. "That's not the case here. "
"These are first class people."
The family attended Oak Avenue Church of Christ regularly; Clinton Toy and his father even served as ushers the week before the shooting. The father and son spent may hunting trips together, and both were avid sportsmen, relatives say.
Clinton Toy, a straight-A student at Nashville Tech, was described as the "All-American boy."
"If you ever wanted a son, he was the one you wanted," said Dan Buckner, who operates Buckner's Dickson Funeral Home.
"They did some work for us not long ago, and he was always so polite," Buckner said. "Everything was 'Yes sir, nosir'.
"He was just very nice."
Larry Toy operated a sheet rock company. He was friendly, but modest, friends said.
"He spent a year in Vietnam and didn't like talking about it," Peeler said.
Elaine Toy was always helping those in need.
"One man at church said he would visit people in need and [Elaine] would already have been there," said Beverly Peeler, David's wife.
Elaine Toy worked with her husband at the business; "She would be just as covered with sheet rock dust as he," Dan Buckner said.
Jount funeral services will be held at 7 p.m. tomorrow at Buckner's Dickson Funeral Home. Burial will be in the Union Cemetary at 10 a.m. Wednesday. The family will receive friends beginning at noon today at the funeral home.

General Notes: Husband - Alan III "The Black" Penthievre, 1st Earl Richmond/Duke Br

Richmond, previous creations: Alan III, a Count of Brittany, whose uncle, another Alan, was p robably a companion in arms of William I (The Conqueror) at Hastings and was granted vast lan d holdings in Yorkshire almost immediately after the Conquest, seems to have been recognize d as Earl of Richmond by 1136. There is no record of his formal investiture with the dignity , however.

His title derived from Richmond Castle in North Yorkshire, which his uncle Alan had built no t long before dying in 1089 and which remained the caput or administrative centre of the hono r (agglomeration of knight's fees in a single unit under the feudal system). Richmond Castl e was granted to the 1st Duke of Richmond of the present creation in August 1675, the same mo nth he was first ennobled, but the medieval hono comprised lands throughout eastern England , not just in Yorkshire. Earl Alan sided with Stephen against the Empress Maud at the time o f the Anarchyl. His son Conan IV held the Dukedom of Brittany (right to which he enjoyed thr ough his mother, Alan's wife) as well as the Earldom of Richmond.

Conan IV had an only child, a daughter Constance, who married first Geoffrey, a younger son o f Henry II of England who was thus acknowledged as Earl of Richmond and Duke of Brittany, the n Ranulf, Earl of Chester, who styled himself Earl of Richmond and Duke of Brittany too. Sh e divorced Ranulf in 1199 and took a third husband, Guy de Thouars, who ran the Richmond esta tes, but may not necessarily have been recognized as Earl of Richmond. Guy sided with the Ki ng of France against King John of England in 1203, whereupon his English lands were forfeited , after which the question as to whether he enjoyed recognition as Earl hardly arises. [Burk e's Peerage, p. 2402]

-----------------

Alan Niger was an active partisan of King Stephen in his contest with the Empress Maud. In 11 42, he took the castle of Lincoln, with considerable treasure, from Ranulph, Earl of Chester , by scaling the walls at night. He also garrisoned the castle of Hotun, in Yorkshire, then p art of the bishop of Durham's possessions, and made great spoil at Ripon upon the demesnes an d tenants of thearchbishop of York. This Alan Niger, who is described as a most deceitful, wi cked person, wrote himself Earl of Brittany, Cornwall, and Richmond; but notwithstanding tha t character, he appears, like his progenitors, to have been a munificent benefactor to the ch urch. His lordship m. Bertha, dau. and heir of Conan le Gros, the 3rd Duke of Bretagne (and b y this marriage acquired the title of Duke of Brittany) and had issue, Conan le Petit, his su ccessor, Brian, Guy, and Reginald. He d. in 1165 and was s. by his eldest son. [Sir Bernard B urke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited, and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883 , p. 162, de Dreux, Earls of Richmond]

----------

In the summer of 1140, Stephen with his amazingly consistent energy against new threats, brou ght an army to Cornwall to regain his own lands there. He recovered all the castles which ha d fallen into the hands of Reginald, illegitimate son of Henry I, with the exception of the o ne Reginald himself inhabited. Stephen introduced his own loyal supporter, Alan of Penthivre , into Cornwall, gave the recovered lands into his hands, and shortly afterwards created hi m Earl of Cornwall. However, Matilda gave Reginald the same title, and the two rival earls we re left to contest their claims. In February, 1141, Alan fought alongside Stephen at the Batt le of Lincoln. After the defeat of Stephen's forces, Alan continued to fight on and tried t o ambush Ranulf of Chester but was captured, put in chains and tortured in a dungeon until h e submitted to Ranulf, did homage to him, and handed over his castles. Another result of thi s humiliation for Alan was that it confirmed that his rival in the west country, Reginald, wo uld keep the earldom of Cornwall.

General Notes: Husband - Thomas Perrin, Jr.

His will was proved in 1695, but an estate inventory was not
recorded until 1704 (at the death of his wife Katherine?).
Five children: Sarah, Mary, Katherine, Richard, and Anne.

In 1688 Thomas Perrin patented 140 acres on the north side of the James adjacent to Richard Perrin on Cornelius Creek.

Richard Perrin and Thomas Perrin lived adjacent to each other on
the James River between 1670 and 1710 in what is now on the edge of
Richmond, Virginia. Richard Perrin patented 740 acres on the north
side of the river in 1672. Thomas Perris patented 140 acres adjacent
to Richard Perrin, on Cornelius Creek, in 1688. [Richard and Thomas
presumably would be brothers, hence sons of Richard Perrin, the
immigrant; dates of birth of Richard Sr.'s children preclude Thomjas
being a son of Richard Jr..]
