|| MALLORY CECIL 9 26 1892 12 18 1912 MT.VERNON || 12-20-1912 MURDER TRADEDY AND ITS HORRIBLE SEQUEL=In the killing of Deputy Sheriff R.S.Moore, followed by the pursuit and subsequent killing of his slayer, Cecil Mallory, on Wednesday, Dec.18,1912, the citizens of Forrest City have again passed through a day of horror and excitement. These tragic events have taken from our midst one of the county's most and efficient officers, and on the other hand, brought grief to the homes of some of our best and loyal friends. Despite his waywardness, Cecil Mallory was loved by his grandmother, Mrs.Moore, where he could always go and find a welcome and by whom he was always loved and t whom he never appealed in vain. To Mrs.Moore, Cecil was never her "little boy," and she cherished, nourished and sheltered him, even when the world had turned its back on him, and even when the stories against him were the blackest. Young Cecil's father, Mr.Emmet Mallory, has always stood staunchly by his son and endeavored to keep him away from evil elements. His uncles, Messers.Ed, John and Ike Mallory, have never faltered in their loyalty and friendship to Cecil. It seems after killing Moore, Cecil decided that he would never surrender to the authority of the law. He took the deputy's gun and keys, recovered after he was shot down at Widener. He drew his gun when told to halt by two deputy's in pursuit, and they fired a double barrelled shotgun into Mallory, killing him within minutes without a word spoken. Moore's body was conveyed to the home of Col.and Mrs.D.Downey, until when the body was shipped to Goodwin township, to be buried at the family. The deceased's father, Mr.W.R.Moore, and his brother Mr.Lee Moore, of Goodwin accompanied the body. NO HEADSTONE
