Medical Notes: *Nephritis: inflammation of the kidney
*Syphilis: also disease of Hispaniola, English disease, German disease, lues, mal Francaise, morbus gallicus, Neapolitan disease, Polish disease, the pox, St. Sement's disease, Spanish disease, Turkish disease. A chronic, infectious venereal disease named after a shepherd infected by the disease as documented in a poem written by Fracastorius (1530). Some believed that it had been spread by Spanish sailors returning from America in the late 1400's when it reached Italy and in a few years the whole of Europe. Other believe that it was introduced to America by the Europeans that came to America in the late 1400's. In the 19th century it was noted to have three fairly definable stages: the primary stage, evidenced by an ulcer (chancre) and buboes; the secondary stage, evidenced by general enlargement of the lymph glands, eruptions of the skin, pustules on the mucous membranes and sore throat; and the third (tertiary) stage, evidenced by growths that undergo degeneration (gummata) in the organs or other tissues of the body. In the early 20th century it was noted that dementia and walking disturbances were part of the last stage of the disease in some patients, which suggested nervous system involvement. 552,553

Ruth Rebecca Cassell, complainant vs. John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell, defendant: in chancery
To the Honorable Kenneth A. Bain, Judge of the said Court:
Your complainant, Ruth Rebecca Cassell, humbly complaining would respectfully show unto your honor that:
She resides in the City of Portsmouth, Virginia, and has been domiciled in, and an actual bona fide resident of this State for more than one year preceding the institution of this suit.
On the 28th day of September, 1912, in the City of Portsmouth, your complainant was married to one John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell, as will appear on the certificate of marriage herewith filed and marked "Exhibit A," and made a part of this bill.
Since the time of marriage your complainant has lived with her said husband continuously until some time the first part of September, 1924 when they separated and have not since lived together.
Your complaint's husband has been negligent and excessively intemperate in drinking ardent spirits and insufferably abusive and violent to her, and has never provided for the necessities of life for your complainant. Your complainant's husband, the said John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell has not only treated her with cruelty, but has broken his marriage vows and has committed adultery with one Bertha Bennitt, within the past few months, and with others, the names of whom are unknown to your complainant. Indeed he is reckless in his habits and as your complaintant has been informed and believes that he is a habitual frequenter of bawdy houses in the City of Portsmouth and the County of Norfolk, and has been seen respeatedly with various women in the City of Portmsouth and County of Norfolk, whose reputations are bad for chastity; and he is so open and indifferent about his said acts that they became and were commonly, generally and notoriously known throughout the City of Portsmouth.
That your complainant has not voluntarily cohabited with her said husband, John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell, since her knowledge of the acts of adultery.
Your complainant further avers that due to her husband's conduct and cruel treatment it has been necessary for her to leave her home to seek shelter with her sister, with whom she is now living.
Your complainant avers that she is without means of support except that given her by friends or that which she earns. Your complainant further represents that her said husband is the owner of the following property: Three lots in Naval Place, Key Road, City of Portsmouth, the value of two thousand dollars ($2,000.00); half owner of house and lot, # 2802 Green Street, Portsmouth, the value of fifteen hundred dollars ($1,500.00); Nash seven-passenger Sedan, license no. 67167, the value of one thousand dollars ($1,000.00) and now has approximately five hundred dollars ($500.00) in cash in the Merchants and Farmers Bank; household and kitchen furniture including: player piano, bed room suite, sewing machine, kitchen cabinet, refrigerator, range, two tables, and large heater, of the value of five hundred dollars ($500.00). Your complainant further represents that the said defendant has threatened and your complainant fears that he will carry his threat into execution, to sell and dispose of his said property before mentioned and described, to prevent your complainant from obtaining alimony therefrom for the support of herself; and that the said defendant ought to be restrained by an injunction of this court from selling, assigning, encumbering or otherwise disposing of the above described property until the hearing of this cause and until suitable provisions are made for the support of your compainant.
Wherefore, inasmuch as your complainant is remediless in the premises save in a court of equity, and to this end she prays that the said John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell be made a party defendant to this bill and be required to answer the same, but an answer under oath here being expressly waived; and that your complainant may be granted a divorce and be forever free from the bonds of matrimony existing between her and the said defendant; that this court will decree such portions of the property of the said defendant or such sums of money to be paid by the defendant to your complainant as this court may deem necessary and proper for the maintenance of your complainant; and that the said defendant my be required to pay your complainant a sufficient sum of money to enable her to employ counsel to prosecute this suit and for the support of your complainant during the pendency of this suit; and that the said defendant may be restrainted by the injunction of this court from selling, assigning, encumbering or otherwise disposing of the above described property hereinbefore mentioned and described, until the further order of this court; and that is may please the court to grant unto your complainant to writ of injunction to be directed to the said John Edwin Wadsworth Cassell restraining him from selling, assigning or otherwise disposing of the property hereinbefore mentioned and described, until the further order of this court; and that your complainant may have such further, other and general relief in the premises as equity may require and to this honorable court shall seem meet and proper. And your complainant will ever pray, etc.

Miss Pauline Grace Johns, of this city, Killed at Bowers Hill--Will Be Buried Here Tomorrow
Miss Pauline Grace Johns, 19 years old, eldest daughter of James R. and Mrs. Grace F. Johns, of 953 North street, Park View, was struck by a Seaboard Air Line Railway passenger train at Bower's Hill at 8:40 o'clock yesterday morning and was instantly killed. Miss Johns was a teacher in the public school at Bower's Hill and was on her way from her boarding place, in the home of C. S. Warren to the school, when she was killed.
Justice Duke conducted an inquest in his office at 8 o'clock last night. A verdict that Miss Johns came to her death by being struck by a Seaboard Air Line Railway train on a public crossing at Bower's Hill was returned.
Advised Not To Cross--From what could be learned reguarding the accident, Miss Johns was walking from the Warren home, on the North side of the Seaboard tracks, and was apparently hurrying to join persons on the south side of the tracks. It was stated that she was warned by a youth that she could not cross the tracks before the train, which was approaching, reached the crossing.
She was hurled aside by the locomotive as it passed through Bower's Hill without stopping. When witnesses of the accident reached her, she was dead.
Apparently the crew of the locomotive did not see the accident for the train continued on to the city. Part of Miss Johns' lunch, which she carried with her, was strewn on the locomotive when it reached the city.
Funeral Service Tomorrow--The body was brought to the city and conveyed to the funeral apartments of Flynn and O'Connor, 316 Court street, where it will remain until tomorrow afternoon, when it will be conveyed to Oak Grove Cemetery, where funeral service will be conducted at the grave at 4 o'clock. Besides her parents, Miss Johns is survived by two sisters, Misses Frances Lee and Jennie May Johns, and a brother, James Heeley Johns, as well as numerous other relatives.
She was a graduate of the Woodrow Wilson High School, and was regarded by school officials as a particularly bright student while in schools and a competent teacher. Superintendent Hunt said yesterday that he had never seen a person of her age, more admirable in the art of English.

6. Funeral: buried at Oak Grove cemetery, 26 Oct 1922, Portsmouth, Virginia. 622 Miss Pauline Grace Johns, daughter of James R. and Mrs. Grace F. Johns, who was killed last Tuesday morning when she was struck by a Seaboard Air Line Railway train at Bower's Hill, was buried yesterday afternoon in Oak Grove Cemetery. The funeral service was conducted at the grave. Rev. Charles H. Holmead, rector, of Trinity Episcopal church, officiating. There was an immense throng in attendance, including not only many friends of the young lady in this city, but the pupils she taught in the Bower's Hill school, and the patrons of that institution.
One of the tributes of Miss John's former pupils was when they filed past the coffin after it has been lowered into the grave, and each dropped a white chrysanthemum on it.
There was a profusion of floral tokens sent by friends, including a standing wreath of roses and asters from the Campostella Heights school; a floral tribute from Miss McNulty's class in the Briggs school, of this city; a wreath from the children of the Bower's Hill school, and also a design from the parents of children in attendance at that school. There were also numerous individual tributes of esteem.
The pallbearers were as follows: H. F. Butt, III, Philip Lee, Walter Hinton, Straghan Herndon, Robert and Elsworth Berryman and Earl Smith.
