E.A. Ellison

L.R. Jarmon, Who Did Shooting, Freed ‘by Justice of Peace—Reward Is Offered for Capture. Acworth, Ga., November 25. In an altercation of several months’ standing, L.R. Jarmon, aged 40, shot and instantly killed E.A. Ellison, aged 30, this morning at 9 o’clock, at Cross Roads, in Paulding county, near Acworth. It is stated that Ellison had insulted one of Jarmon’s daughters some time ago, and the matter had been carried to court, and this was the primary cause of the trouble. The only eyewitness to the tragedy was Dolf Blackman, who states that he was talking to Ellison in the road when Jarmon approached with his hand in his inside coat pocket. After approaching within three feet of Ellison he opened fire, shooting Ellison five times, several times in the head. He gave up to Justice of the Peace Jim Foster, who deputized a neighbor, R.A. Abney, to whom he turned over the prisoner. It is stated that Abney allowed the prisoner to return home and to talk freely with friends, and that while allowed his freedom he made his escape. He has not been recaptured. Jarmon is a man with a family. Ellison leaves a wife and two small children. Friends of Ellison are offering a reward for the capture of Jarmon.
