BRAWNER, JEREMIAH  ‘JERRY’
Moonshiners Ambush Morgan County Man
Jerry Brawner Bushwhacked and Son Badly Shot
Liquor runners of Morgan County have adopted the methods of Chicago’s gangsters in disposing of their foes and as a result this week 55 year old Jerry Brawner of the third district is dead and his seventeen year old son is in a serious condition from gun shot wounds inflicted by an unknown moonshiner who fired on them from ambush Friday night, July 31, 1931. When Mr Brawner arose from his seat on the porch of his home Friday night to enter the house a moonshiner’s gun cracked and he fell dead on the porch with part of his head shot away.  His seventeen year old son, John, fled across the field to the home of Arthur Jones, to summons help and the same gun cracked again and the son fell with a charge of buck shot in his hips and legs.  The elder Brawner was killed instantly and the son remains in a critical condition. Immediately after the shooting Sheriff Granville Davis and deputies Moore, McCarty and Byrge rushed to the scene and made an investigation.  The blood hounds from the state penitentiary at Petros were brought to the scene in effort to trail the killer but were not successful.     The district in which the Brawners live has a large number of moonshiners and distilleries and on numerous occasions the Brawners had given officers tips and had often gone with them still raiding.  Officers and relatives of the dead man are positive that moonshiners are responsible for the crime. Death blew it’s breath in the face of the senior Brawner six years ago when, while returning from a Spelling Bee, an ambusher fired five shots at him.  His body was sprinkled with buckshot but he was not seriously injured. Officers this week were combing the hills for the operators of a still which was seized Thursday night of last week in which the Junior Brawner participated.  Young Brawner accompanied officers on the raid.  The operators of the still, alarmed by their lookout, fled into the woods before the officers arrived.  The still and equipment was destroyed by the officers and a large quantity of mash was poured out.  J. M Brawner was born in Franklin County, Kentucky, July 13, 1875, and died at the residence near Crab Orchard, July 31, 1931, age 56 years.  The funeral was held at the residence August 22nd on account of his son, John C being wounded.  The large crowd of friends and neighbors filled the house and yard.  Rev Frank Suddath delivered a very impressive talk on the life and characters of one of Morgan County’s best citizens.  L L Thomas led the music.  Burial was in Crab Orchard Cemetery by the side of his mother. Mr Brawner was a man who stood for law and order, industrious, honest, a kind neighbor, loving husband, father and friend.  He was married to Miss Rosie Kittrell, Jan 9 1896.  To this union five children were born.  The oldest child died a soldier in the world war at Great Lakes, Ill, in 1918.  Those left are his widow; two daughters, Mrs Effie Russell of Beech Grove, Ind, Mrs Dixie Hogue, of Oakdale, two sons, Samuel Brawner, of Beech Grove, Ind and John C of the home.  He leaves one sister, Mrs L C Baker, of Indianapolis, Ind, and one brother, F E Brawner, of Urbana, Ill.  Thus closes the life of one amongst our best citizens, whose many acts and deeds will live in the memory of the people.  The family feel very grateful for all who in any way helped them during this terrible ordeal through which they are passing.
