Tru Tales About Ohio

in the grave, nearly the whole town
mobbed the college, broke up the fur
niture, broke out the windows and
threw parts of cadavers through them
and 1847, just 100 years ago, the col
lege folded up.
Then there was the famous Medi
cal College of Ohio, Sixth Street,
Cincinnati. It was opened in 1818
and always had borne a stainless
reputation. It first fell under suspi
cion when the body of John Scott
Harrison, father of one President and
son of another, was found by his son
hanging by a rope in the body chute
of the college on the night of May 22,
1878—less than 20 hours after burial
in Congress Green Cemetery, North
John Harrison and George Eaton
found the body when hunting for that

been found robbed at the burial of
Clues in the grave-robberies also
pointed towards the Miami Medical
College, Twelfth Street, Cincinnati,
where no bodies were discovered but
whose janitor related many had been
brought there and then shipped away.
College authorities knew nothing
about it, the janitor declared, and he
had been forced to engage in the
work by a stranger who coerced him.
Most of the cadavers, the janitor told
detectives, were shipped to “Quimby
& Co., Ann Arbor, Michigan.”
At Ann Arbor, Cincinnati detect
ives and a Michigan sheriff were
shown 49 bobbing, squirming, naked
cadavers in the briny body vats of
the University of Ann Arbor. Poking
among them, a professor brought
them up one-by-one until the corpse
of Augustus Devin appeared and was

rested and tried in connection with
the grave-robberies but were released
for lack of evidence.
Only isolated cases of grave-rob
bing occurred during the following
years and the epidemic was believed
to have died away. Then, the eve
ning of February 15, 1884 fire broke
out in Avondale.

swankiest suburbs, filled with tower

Jewish population, was at that time
a detached northern suburb. Its fire
department was a bucket brigade.
It wasn’t much of a fire, just a
small frame shack on a side street
in the “bottoms district,” but after
the hut had burned to the ground and
the ashes were sifted, the occupants,
Beverly Taylor and his wife, Eliza
beth and their 11-year-old foster
daughter, Emma Jane Lambert, nev
er were seen again.
The Taylors were old and poor.
Beverly made a scant living' for his
small family by cutting and selling
fire-wood to the neighbors. He had
no savings and no enemies.
Marshal Joseph Brown, Avondale,
believed the three had been murder
i ed. Their bodies had not been in the
shack because it had been searched
by rescuers just before the walls fell
and nobody was there. If it was a
triple murder the motive was neither
'robbery nor revenge. Then what?
With an apparent triple-murder to
solv the Avomia marshal sought
help from the Cincinnati Police De
partment and Defective James White
i was detailed to work with Brown on
i White thought of the body-snatch
i ing angle and both officers went to
the Medical College of Ohio, still on
Sixth Street, where officials denied
any knowledge of the matter. No,
they said, iu such bodies had been
brought there. Brown was crestfal
len but White did not believe the col
lege authorities. Jim White didn’t
believe anything nor anybody.
Three Bodies Found
Next morning the college officials
had a better memory and told the
authorities that all three bodies had
been brought to the school and were
then in the “body hole” in pickle. All
three, an autopsy showed, had
crushed skulls and head wounds.
Brown and White rounded up four
Avondale suspects, two of which
proved alibis and were released. The
others, Allen Ingalls and Ben John
son, made conflicting statements and
Ingalls’ story was badly mixed. Con
fronted by Robert B. Dickson, an ex
pressman, who related he had hauled
three “sacks" from the vicinity of the
crime the night it occurred and point
ing to Ingalls said “That is the man
who hired me” and to Johnson, “He
rode on the wagon with me,” Ingalls
confessed and imnlicated Johnson.
The men ad wanted some bodies
to sell, they i dated, and believing it
easiei to ie Taylors than to rob
some gra ■., had committed the
crimes and \/,d the cadavers to the
College of Ohio,
were tried and
»n was hanged in the court
yard but Ingalls hanged him
ith his blanket in jail shortly
At the trial Dr. John Cilley, dean
of the college, naively related that he
had bought the bodies for $15 apiece,
cut each into five pieces and sold
them to students at $5 a hunk. A
price, a newspaper reporter pointed
out, that was cheaper than ,pork
which that year had hit the then all
time high of $30 a hundred pounds.
