Mr. Clarence Key, a grandson of Francis Scott Key and a veteran of the Civil War, died at the Confederate Soldiers’ Home at Pikesville.

 

The Sun Paper (Baltimore) 15 August 1911-News Article

GRANDSON OF KEY DEAD

Confederate Veteran Had Unusually Active, Interesting Career

MET DIPLOMATS IN MANY CLIMES

Went To Cuba At Early Age, But Returned To fight For “Lost Cause” In Civil War.

 

After a life which brought him in touch with the uttermost parts of the earth, coming in contact for many years with some of the most astute diplomats of the Old and New World, Mr. Clarence Key, grandson of Francis Scott Key, author of “The Star Spangled Banner”, died at the Confederate Soldiers’ Home, Pikesville, Sunday after a lingering illness.

   He had lived at the home since 1909, having been in poor health all that time, although it was expected that he would live several years longer.

   Born in Maryland 75 years ago, Mr. Key was a son of John R. Key.  He went to Cuba when very young, and at the outbreak of the Civil War made several attempts to get back to this country, finally succeeding in landing in Mexico, when he at once crossed the border into Texas and enlisted in the Second Texas Cavalry under the Confederate flag.

   Later he joined the Twenty sixth Texas Cavalry, his total service ****** over four years.  The battles in which he participated were all fought in the Southwest and he often regretted the fact that he was unable to participate in the fighting in Virginia, where his comrades from Maryland showed conspicuous bravery.

   After the was Mr. Key, pro**ing by his knowledge of Spanish gained in Cuba, went to Mexico City, where he became official interpreter for the American Embassy.  He was so proficient that his services were sought by sir, Chentung Liang C****.  ***** Minister to the United States and Mexico, jointly, for many years Mr. Key accepted a place in the embassy in Mexico City, taking the title of Foreign Secretary, a position which he filled with much credit until two years ago, when he was obliged to resign on account of failing health.

   With him at the home were two cousins, Messrs. John r. Key and D. Murray key who served in the Maryland regiments in the Confederacy.  Mr. Key was a handsome man, with long, flowing beard.  He was six feet tall and well proportioned, full of life and whole ***** on all occasions.

   Mr. Key wrote magazine stories about his wartime experiences during his stay in the home, and was one of the most popular members there.  A brother, Mr.  John R. Key of Washington, who is an artist, survives.

   The funeral will be held this morning.  Services will be conducted at the home by Rev. **mer *. Pearce,  pastor of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Pikesville.  The pallbearers will be Messrs. D. Murray Key, H.F. Sleepack, H.C. Blanchard, John Dunning, J. Kent Wilson and E.B. Tucker.  Burial will be in Loudon Park Cemetery.

The Sun Paper, 17 March 1897

The late R. G. Killman

[Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun]

 

Annapolis, MD., March 16-Mr. Richard G. Killman, whose sudden death late last night was published in today’s Sun, will be buried Thursday morning.  After funeral service at St. Anne’s Protestant Episcopal Church, the remains will be taken to Baltimore for burial in the Confederate lot at Loudon Park Cemetery.

 

Mr. Killman went South during the war with a number of Annapolitans and through the war served as private in Company D., Second Maryland Infantry, under Captain McAleer.  His first lieutenant was the late James S. Franklin, an ex-clerk of the Maryland Court of Appeals.  Some time before his death Mr. Killman expressed a wish that when the end came he could have as pallbearers six ex-Confederates.  He was a member of Gen. Geo. H. Steuart Camp No. 773, of United Confederate Veterans and of the Society of the Army and Navy Confederates.  He was also a member of the Knights of Pythias.  His friends say that when he went home last night, shortly before 10 o’clock, he seemed in excellent spirits.  He had been conversing about a book in which he was deeply interested.

TWO OLD SOLDIERS DEAD

Col. A.S. Taylor And Abraham Koons Die Almost Within An Hour Of Each Other

 

Two deaths took place yesterday at the Confederate Soldier’s Home, at Pikesville, almost within an hour of one another.

 

Col. A.S. Taylor died at 5:53 P.M. and Private Abraham Koons died at 7 P.M. Both deaths resulted from old age and general breaking down of the systems.

 

Colonel Taylor was one of the oldest inmates of the home.  He had been confined to the hospital about two months. He was eighty-two years old and had been at the home since October 6, 1891. He was born in Virginia, and entered the civil war in 1861 and served until 18--.  He was colonel of the Second Confederate States Marine Corps., and was afterward colonel in the school of instruction at Culpeper Court House, Va.  Before the war he was lieutenant in the United States Marine Corps and was on the first governmental expedition to Japan.  He was related to Gen. Robert E. Lee and was considered the finest looking man in the Marine Corps.  He was also a veteran of the Mexican war and drew a pension from the United States government.  He leaves one daughter, his wife having died some years ago.

  

Private Koons was seventy years old and had been confined to the hospital about three weeks.  He came from Patapsco, Carroll County, and had been at the home about two years.  He entered the Confederate army in 1861 and served until 1863.  He was a member of the First Maryland Artillery, Army of Northern Virginia and enlisted at Richmond, Va.  He leaves one brother, Eli Koons, of Patapsco, Carroll county; and one sister, a Mrs. Katzenberger.

 

A double funeral service will take place Monday morning at 8:30 o’clock.  Rev. E.T. Lawrence, rector of St. Mark’s Protestant Episcopal Church, Pikesville, will conduct the services.  Burial will be at Loudon Park Cemetery.  The bodies of the old soldiers will be taken from the home to Loudon Park in the trolley funeral car.  This will be the second double funeral from the home in five years.  The pall-bearers will be Lieut. William R. Byus, George W. Barrett, Henry R. Bonn, Rev. S.F. Butts, H. DeWitt Clinton, James L. Castle, J.S. Helbig, James McNulty, James J. Mitchell, Lloyd Nothingham, Nicholas W. Watkins and William H. Wright.
