The following article and obituary were found on the internet for Grady county, OK
but his name was misspelled. From the Rush Springs Gazette, Rush Springs, Grady
county, Oklahoma, Thursday, June 23, 1932, front page.
"Pliny P. Worsham Is Killed By Joe Guest Pliny P. Worsham, 62, died Tuesday
night at about 10:15 o'clock, a few seconds after he was fatally stabbed in the neck
with a small knife by Joe Guest, 56, Rush Springs merchant, on the Main street sidewalk
just west of the First National Bank, on the north side of the street. The motive for
the crime has not been determined. Funeral services will be held for Worsham at 3:30
o'clock Friday afternoon at the Missionary Baptist church, and will be conducted by Rev.
H. E. Waggoner, pastor of the church. The body is now at the Callaway & Mullican
undertaking parlors, where it was taken immediately after his death. He is survived by
his widow, two sons, two daughters, a sister, Mrs. Ed Coyle of Marlow, six brothers,
including Tom and Gailen Worsham of Rush Springs and Jabe Worsham of Roswell, New
Mexico, and other relatives. Dan Williamson, constable, who was the person nearest the
two men when the crime occurred, says that earlier Tuesday night he had stepped into the
Guest store, in the rear of which Guest has made his home, and ordered Guest and Mrs.
Mazella Cerrato to appear in Justice of the peace court Wednesday morning; that Guest
pleaded with him to be let off, but that Williamson refused to do that and started
across the street toward the Ideal Drug store, with Guest angrily shouting at him; that
after talking to some boys in front of the drug store for a minute or so, he walked a
few steps west and began talking to Pliny Worsham about the Sharkey- Schmeling fight;
that Guest then came up to them and, pointing a finger at Worsham, said, 'You're the
low-downdest ----------- in the world,' and before Williamson knew what was happening
Guest struck Worsham on the left side of the face, apparently with his open hand; that
Williamson stepped between them, pushing Worsham toward the building and Guest back into
the street; that Worsham clutched Williamson's arm and sank to the sidewalk, with blood
spurting through his finger over the left side of his neck. Williamson says he told
bystanders to take Worsham across the street to the Rexall Drug store, and that he
followed Guest, who was backing across the street toward his store. The constable says
he searched Guest and took from him a small store knife, about the size of a small
pocketknife. Williamson says he asked Guest if that was the knife he cut Worsham with,
and that Guest said it was. The blades of the knife seemed to have been recently sharpened,
Williamson says. Worsham is thought to have died before he was taken into the Rexall
store, having lost a tremendous amount of blood. Guest was taken to the county jail at
Chickasha by Deputies Jim Bond and Abe Evans Tuesday night, and later to Oklahoma City,
officers fearing that friends of Worsham might attempt to harm the prisoner. Guest was
returned to Chickasha Wednesday, officers having decided their fears were groundless,
there having been no evident effort by anyone to avenge Worsham's death. County Attorney
Gerald Spencer and Sheriff Horace Crisp have been investigating the case since in search
of evidence to be used to Guest's preliminary hearing. Constable Williamson says Worsham
said nothing to Guest and made no movement toward him Tuesday night when Guest walked up
to them just before the latter slashed Worsham, and that Worsham's last words were
concerning the Sharkey-Schmeling fight, which he and Williamson had been discussing.
Williamson also says that the rumor that Worsham had given the constable information
which led to his entering the Guest store before the murder is unfounded; that
Williamson's action in connection with that matter resulted from his own observations
and that he was not given information about it by anyone. Worsham was a deputy sheriff
during the term of Sheriff Hodge Bailey, and was a pioneer here. Guest is a widower, and
has lived alone in the rear of his store here for several years. His only statement
about the crime was, 'He made me do it.' Mrs. Cerrato was held by officers as a material
From the Rush Springs Gazette, Rush Springs, Grady county,
Oklahoma, Thursday, June 30, 1932, front page:
"Joe Guest Is Bound Over To
District Court Joe Guest, Rush Springs merchant, was bound over to the district court
for trial on the charge of murdering Pliny Worsham here the night of June 21, when his
preliminary hearing was held in the court of Justice of the Peace H.L. Grissby at
Chickasha Wednesday moring. The defense presented no testimony, but devoted itself to
cross-examining the four witnesses presented by the prosecution, Constable Dan
Williamson, Dr. P.B. Hall, Clarence Harris, and Mrs. Mazella Cerrato of near Agawam. The
defense was expected to apply for bond in district court this afternoon."
From the Rush Springs Gazette, Rush Springs,
Grady county, Oklahoma, Thursday, June 30, 1932, front page.
"Worsham Funeral Is Held Friday P.M.
Funeral service was held at 5 pm Friday for Pliny P. Worsham at the Missionary Baptist
church, Rev. H. E. Waggoner, pastor, conducting the service. Interment was made in the
Rush Springs cemetery, Callaway & Mullican having charge of arrangements. Pliny P.
Worsham was born December 22, 1869, in Calloway county, Kentucky, and died here June 21,
1932, age 62 years, five months and 29 days. He was united in marriage with Miss Maude
Kendrick at Stephenville, Kentucky, and to this union seven children were born, three of
whom died in infancy. Deceased was a pioneer in this section, having been a resident of
Rush Springs for 30 years. He served as a Grady county deputy sheriff under Sheriff
Hodge Bailey. Surviving relatives are his widow; two sons, Milton of Rush Springs and
Kenneth of Williams, Arizona; two daughters, Mrs. Syble Urbin of Rush Springs and Mrs.
Mary Bauchard of Williams, Arizona; one sister, Mrs. Ed Coyle of Marlow; six brothers,
T.H. and G.B. of Rush Springs, Jabe of Roswell, New Mexico, Ernest of Plainview, Texas,
R.B. and T.C. of Stillwell; and other more distant relatives. He was at one time a

and acquaintances were in attendance a the last rites."
