An account, delayed in transmission has been received from Riverton, Lake County of the death of an old lady, Mrs. LeBaron, who was accidently thrown from a wagon and sustained fatal injuries. It appears that she and her daughter-in-law who lives on the prairie between Riverton and herriman had to haul water from the Utah and Salt Lake Canal for culinary purposes, were going down to the canal with a lot of barrels on their wagon, and for some cause, the horses took fright and started on a run. The old lady who was stout and healthy took hold of the lines in connection with her daughter-in-law, wrapping the lines around her wrist and leaning back braced herself against the front gate of the wagon by the powerful strain on the lines broke the horses turned around in the brush and threw the occupants out and while the younger woman, being the more active escaped injuries of a serious character, the older one was struck in the head by the wagon wheels. The blow burst her skull so that her brains oozed out. She remained unconscious to the time of her death, three days later. The accident happened on her sixty-third birthday. She leaves two sons in Riverton Thomas Dyer and Charles Tinlay (or Tinbay?) one of whom has lost his wife some yers ago. She was buried on July 16th.

Servies for Mrs. Malissa WITHROW will be held at 4 this afternoon at the service rooms of the Neekamp Funeral home with Adjt. Ray Broghton of the Salvation Army officiating. Interment will be in Silver Lake cemetery besides the body of her husband R.E. WITHROW who died in 1936.
Casketbearers will include W. T.Duncan, H. F. Moland,Joe Brown D. N.Varec, Harvey Grundy and George Minor

Dear Sirs
I would please like some information as to the Cherokee Indian claim of my Grandmother, Malissa Ann Witherow, whose maiden name was Malissa Ann Dyer. She derives her Indian blood from her mother, Malinda Angeline Shepherd who was married four times, the last husband name being Labaran.
She is supposed to be a decendant of Pocahontas, her father's mother being third generation from Pocahontas. I would appreciate all the information you could give me as to the roll number of my Grandmother.
Is there any place and record, as to the allottment of Indian land to her, or any of her four children, Ida Mae, Robert A., Effie, or Vincent?
Could you give me any information as to the law or bill, the Legislature tried to pass to reopen the rolls which were closed for the Five Civilized Tribes in March of 1907?
Grandmother is getting old and it seems as one of the old time Cheroke Indian's she should be given her rights
Hoping to hear from you immediately.
I am Your's Sincerely,

Mrs. C. E. Minor
Gen Delivery
Bartlesville Ok

John was the son of Robert & Jennet Withrow. They were of Scotch-Irish desent. John and his wife, Mary, settled first in Rowan Co., North Carolina, then on the Second Broad River tributaries in today's Rutherford Co., North Carolina. Their son, James, was a "hero of the Battle of King's Mountain" during the Revolutionary War. James also served in the State Legislature for many terms. While James stayed on in Rutherford Co., N.C., other children left to make their way west into TN. and KY.

It appears from "The Withrow Family Bible" (currently in private collection; but published, 'The Genealogical Society of Old Tyron County, NC. Vol III) that Robert and Janette were married in Ireland; correct date stated: it does not give the location; however there are birth records for their first child William, born 21 March 1717 in the London Archives; it appears that they were 'free travelers with papers' that registered with the colonial government. They appearently arrived in America about 1718; most likely Baltimore. We find them documented and their marriage recorded, in the Adams co. Pennsylvania records along with the birth of their second child John in 1719.Exactally where Robert John died is not known; we know that in the early 1720's they went south through the Cumberland Gap into the frontier. They established a homestead in the Brunswick territory (renamed Augusta in 1738), somewhere near present day Franklin co., Virginia, where Janette died in 1727. Two of his son's went north and west into the Greenbrier region; a huge expanse that strecthed from present day I-81 to the Ohio river, north to Parkersburg and south to Pennyrile (Kentucky) while one pressed farther south. It is only recorded that he died in Virginia; no small place, as at that time everything from the Atlantic ocean to the Ohio river was Virginia.
