Tunkhannock Republican, 28 Jan. 1880; Court Proceedings: While the Grand Jury were in session at the last term of Court, the circumstances of the death of Elihu Evans, of Eaton Township, this county, were brought to their notice, but not being in a shape either to find or ignore a bill they merely referred to the to the matter in open Court. Judge Ingham then directed District Attorney Dershimer to investigate the facts, and if they warranted it to prepare an indictment for the consideration of the Grand Jury drawn to serve at April Term next. In pursuance of the order of Court, on Saturday last, a Coroner's jury was sworn before Esquire Eastman and proceeded to examine witnesses
Residing in the locality of the place of death of the deceased in order to ascertain the manner of his death. These proceedings were held with closed doors so that your reporter was not able to be present and hear the evidence, but the facts are as follows: About the first of January,1879, complaint was made before Esquires Terry and Rosengrant by one of the sons of the deceased, that said Elihu Evans was by reason of age and infirmity unable to support himself and had not the necessary means of support. Whereupon an order directed to the Overseers of the Poor of Eaton township was issued by said Justices commanding them to receive the said Evans and make suitable provisions for him. At the January Term of Court following this order the Overseers of the Poor aforesaid present a petition to the Court of Quarter Sessions setting forth that the children and grand-children of the deceased were well able to take care of and support him; and, upon reading this petition and motion of Counsel for said Overseers, the Court granted a rule on the children and grand-children of the deceased to show why they should not support him. At April sessions the Court ordered the two sons of the said Elihu Evans, vis.: James K. Evans and George M. Evans, to support their father and fixed the rate of his maintenance at four dollars per week. George M. to pay eleven-twelfths and James K., to pay one-twelfth thereof; or in lieu of such payment to take and maintain their father themselves in the proportions of time equivalent to said payments. A few weeks ago the death of Elihu Evans was reported that the father had been put in an out-house with no fire and once in two or three days a supply of victuals would be carried to him and he could then eat them at his leisure. When he was found he was nearly or quite frozen, and there was snow in his bed. The jury, after hearing the evidence, failed to agree, five of them being of the opinion that the deceased came to his death trough the criminal negligence of his son George M. Evans, but the sixth one was of the opinion that, although the son had neglected his father, it was not neglect of a criminal nature. We are not advised as to weather any further action will be taken. (ge2006)

Wyoming Democrat Newspaper, Issue of 11 August 1880, Court Proceedings:
Court opened at 10 o'clock a.m. Monday August 9, 1880. Under: "Oyer and Terminer"
Commonwealth versus Geo. M. Evans. Indicted for involuntary manslaughter. This case has been before the courts for 6 to 8 months and has attracted considerable attentions. It seems that Geo. M. having the custody and care of his father, who was a pauper, so neglected him, it is charged and permitted him to be without proper care, nourishment and attention as to cause or hasten his death. The indictment as framed, contained 5 counts, but upon argument the 3rd, 4th and 5th counts were quashed. At this writing (Tuesday afternoon) the case being tried upon the 1st count, assault and battery and the 2nd, the unlawful killing of the deceased. The felonies part of the offense was waived by the DA so the the prisoner is, in effect, being tried for a misdemeanor only.

DEATHS
Three obituary clippings

Bowers Lowber Hunter died on Saturday afternoon, October 7th at his residence in Eaton, Wyoming Co., PA, after a painful illness of nearly four years of that dread disease, consumption. He was born December 18 1834, in Northmoreland Twp., and lived there nearly all the time until the fall of 1853 when he moved with his father, Jacob Hunter, and family, to the farm in Eaton, where he lived until his death, with the exception of eight months service in the army. He was drafted early in the fall of 1884 and performed his duty faithfully as a soldier. He was promoted Corporal, and was honorably discharged the 20th June 1865. He was consigned to the 81st Regiment of Penna. Vol. In politics he was a Jeffersonian Democrat of the staunchest kind, by occupation he was a farmer and lumberman. He had held the office of Supervisor in Eaton, and was Justice of the Peace at the time of his death. He was strictly honest in all his dealings, his word was his bond. His motto was deal with others as you would be dealt by. Kind to all, he was always ready to help those who needed help whether friend or stranger. He was the third one who has been called away by death, from a large family of children. His last days were spent in earnest conversation with those he was about to leave. His last words to those who cared for him through his illness were. "God bless you all. He was interned in the Eaton Cemetery, Rev. A. 0. Stearns officiating at the funeral and Rev. Mitchell pronounced the benediction at the grave.

One of the saddest deaths that we have ever been called to chronicle was that of Miss Nancy, the only daughter and only child of Mrs. Chloe A.. Hunter. Deceased had been ailing only about a week and not considered dangerous until a few days before she died. But all medical assistance failed and death claimed her at the midnight hour Saturday. Deceased was about twenty years of age. Forty five carriages of friends fonned the cortege that followed the remains from the late home to the final nesting place. The services were held at the Baptist Church, conducted by Rev. A. Bergen Browe. The floral decorations were many and handsome. A large pillow of the choicest flowers wene from a cousin, Mrs. Fred M. Jones, of Elmira, NY.

Mrs. Chloe Hunter, died yesterday morning about 10:30 at her home on Gravel Hill; aged 58 years. Three weeks ago she was taken with the grip, which developed into pneumonia. She recovered somewhat but heart trouble set in, causing her death. She is survived by one brother, Charles Harding of Eatonville and a sister; Mrs. Tabor of Williamsport. Her husband died in 1882 near Hunter's Mill, up Bowman Creek, where they lived at the time. The funeral has not been arranged at the time of writing. The interment will be at the Eatonville brick church
