The Jesup Sentinel, Wayne County, Georgia, Thursday, July 8, 1926.
Dan W. Westberry Laid to Rest Sunday.
The body of Dan W. Westberry, late of Jesup, Wayne County, Georgia, was laid to rest amid impressive ceremonies last Sunday afternoon at Flint Branch church.
The deceased had been in Miami, Florida for the past year and was a member of the Miami Police Department. He had come to Doctortown, Ga., on Saturday to bring his family to his new home in Miami.
For sometime past, the family had been living in the home of John H. Hill, at Doctortown, where they had moved since their home was destroyed by fire near Jesup. It was at Hill’s home that the domestic troubles of the Westberry’s began and Hill is alleged to have been the cause of Westberry’s desire to move his family to Miami.
On arriving at Jesup, Westberry proceeded to Doctortown and left his pistol and billy with his wife at Jesup. He met Hill on the road a few feet from the railway station there and it is believed that words were passed by the two men. The result of the meeting was the stabbing and shooting of Westberry by Hill, the wounds proving fatal to Westberry who was dead upon the arrival of Sheriff Mattox and Mr. Leith Stewart.
The body of Westberry was brought to Jesup by Mr. Stewart while Hill was taken into custody by Sheriff Mattox and lodged in the county jail awaiting the action of the grand jury.
Funeral services were held at Flint Branch church last Sunday and a delegation of Klu Klux Klansmen from Miami, Florida came to Jesup and took complete charge of the body. It is reported that as soon as the hearse was opened by Mr. Stewart of the Stewart & Knight Funeral Home, the Klansmen took charge of the body and no other hand touched it until after it was lowered into the grave. This is, I understand, the first Klan funeral ever conducted in Wayne County.
Several members of the local Klan ably assisted the visiting Klansmen. Over five hundred people witnessed the impressive ceremony.
Westberry leaves a wife and three small children and was 33 years of age.
