Obituary - Lincoln News, 6 January 1898
A telegram was received today from Crown Point, Ind., announcing the death
of Russell Scroggin, formerly a Logan County citizen but of late years a
resident of Portsmouth, Iowa. The deceased was a son of Russell Scroggin
of Mt. Pulaski, brother of L. K. Scroggin, and for many years was a cashier
in the First National Bank at Mt. Pulaski. The germs of consumption took
root and Mr. Scroggin went to Iowa, where he started a bank, afterwards
reorganizing it as a state bank and serving as cashier. The physicians of
that place gave up hope and he was sent to Colorado, but to no avail. He
then placed himself under the care of the Chinese physician at Crown Point,
but no good resulted and death came as a relief at 8:15 this morning. He
leaves a wife and two children to mourn his loss. The deceased was an
uncle of Mrs. A. G. Drobisch and a cousin of Mrs. A. L. Anderson. Nothing
is known of the funeral arrangements.
Obituary - Lincoln News, 10 January 1898
The funeral of Russell Scroggin was held Sunday morning at 10 o'clock at
Mt. Pulaski. In spite of the inclement weather, a large concourse of
people was present to pay a last tribute to the dead. The Modern Woodmen
of America, Mt. Pulaski, attended in a body. Rev. Dabney had charge of the
services and, after a beautiful sermon, the remains were taken to the
Steenbergen Cemetery and laid to rest beside the sleeping mother.

Obituary - Mount Pulaski Times-News, 16 March 1933
Carl Scroggin Killed Saturday
The murder of Carl F. Scroggin, 28, of 2004 Keys Avenue, Springfield,
Illinois, whose body was found about 8 o'clock Saturday morning, March 11,
in a cornfield near Twentieth Street and Watch Avenue, in the northeast
part of Springfield, remained a mystery Saturday night. He was shot
through the back near the left shoulder.
At first it was believed that Mr. Scroggin had been shot while picking up
coal along the railroad track. The bullet removed from the body, however,
appeared to be a .25 caliber automatic bullet. It had a steel jacket and
State's Attorney Alfred H. Greening, of Sangamon county, called in several
railroad detectives Saturday night for questioning, but found that none of
them used a pistol of such small caliber. Arthur Hall, Alton railroad
special agent, said that none of his men were stationed in the locality of
The tracks near where Scroggin's body was found are used by the Baltimore
& Ohio and Alton railroad and the Illinois Terminal System.
Members of the family said that Mr. Scroggin left his home between 5:30
and 6 o'clock Saturday morning, saying that he was "going after a chunk of
coal." Police said they found several chunks of coal laying along the
tracks. Scroggin had been out of work all winter and there was no fuel in
the house, the family stated.
When Carl failed to return home in a reasonable length of time, his family
became alarmed and began a search for him. The body was found in a
cornfield about 200 feet from the railroad tracks by Charles Boyer.
The inquest into the death of Carl F. Scroggin was held in Springfield at
10 o'clock by Coroner J. P. Knox. Arthur Jones, 1055 North Sixth Street,
a guard at the Sangamon mine, told police Saturday night that he fired to
frighten three men who boarded a car of coal which he was riding in the
vicinity Saturday morning. He fired twice to frighten the men, he said,
then stumbled and fell, firing a third shot as he fell. He said the three
men ran away, two in one direction, and one in another. He said he did
not know he had hit anyone, but decided to report to police when he read
newspaper accounts of the finding of Scroggin's body in the vicinity.
Carl F. Scroggin was a son of Mr. and Mrs. George Scroggin, who lived in
Lake Fork vicinity, but several years ago moved to Springfield. During
the past year, the parents came to Mount Pulaski and are living in the old
Holden property on North Marion Street. To the old friends and relatives,
George Scroggin is known as "Sant."
Besides his parents, decedent is survived by his wife, Edna, a daughter,
Clara, two brothers, Clell and George Scroggin Jr.; and four sisters, Miss
Alberta Scroggin, Mrs. Gertrude McHenry, Mrs. Violet Bond, and Mrs. Eva
Funeral services were held at the Stuart Street Christian Church in
Springfield at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, March 14, conducted by Rev. A.
O. Hargis, and interment was made in Oak Ridge Cemetery.
