GARRETT FARMER TO
FACE MURDER CHARGES
Killed Stepson Who Defied
Orders Not to Enter
Yard at Home
Oakland, Md., July 15 . (AP) - Garrett County State's Attorney Neil C. Fraley said tonight that William Durst, 65-year-old farmer of the Dry Run section will be charged with murder in the shotgun slaying of his 33-year-old stepson, Paul Otto Filsinger, of Hutton. Filsinger was fatally wounded by Durst Saturday night as he entered the Durst yard in defiance of orders to stay out. The two men had been on bad terms about two years, Fraley said he was told. The victim's wife and mother were witnesses to the shooting. Fraley said that Durst, now held without bail in the county jail here, will be given a preliminary hearing later this week.

222 1830: In the 1830 Twiggs Co federal census Benjamin B. Smith was listed in Captain Bostick’s District. He was listed as having one male 30-40 years old (himself), one female 30-40 years old (his wife Nancy/Ann), and one female 50-60 years old. In addition, his household included: 1 boy under 5, 3 boys 5-10, 1 boy 10-15, 1 boy 15-20, and one male 20-30; 1 girl under 5, 1 girl 5-10 and 1 girl 10-15 years old. Since two adult females were listed, the author surmises that the older of the two (age 50-60 years old) was Nancy McKenzie, widow of Aaron McKenzie, (Jr.) and mother of Nancy/Ann. The spread of ages reflected would have meant that she would have been born between 1770 and 1780.  Howell, Nancy Harvell (I14476)
