03 counties named Marion with county seats also named Marion:
Marion County, Kansas
Marion County, Ohio
Marion County, South Carolina
We’ve spoken at length about Marion County, Ohio now and its Marion seat in the post before this one, concerning Warren G. Harding (and his nemesis and his wife who happens to be the daughter of the nemesis) and also S. Anderson. Does Marion County, Kansas give us more insights? Does the same named county in South Carolina? Actually the SC county is implied in the KS county. Let’s take a peep.
“We can’t let you do that.”
I’ve made some important strides in map research, Hucka D.
How about that, then? Teach/ comes up with only 1 hit in GNIRPS, and that’s right next to Willard (and Wallace and Tin City) in North Carolina, Hucka D. Hucka? Probably went back to bed (lucky him). I think it has to represent “Teacher”, or, more specific, Kate Swift. Willard heads into the Beach Grove to think about her. Rev. Hartman is also dwelling on her the same day, his Achilles heel. Heal.
Chicago White Stockings players:
Chicago White Sox players (White Sox were called White Stockings in their first several years of existence, or about 1901-1903):
One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the Chicago team was established as a major league baseball club in 1900. The club was originally called the Chicago White Stockings, after the nickname abandoned by the Cubs, and the name was soon shortened to Chicago White Sox, believed to have been because the paper would shorten it to Sox in the headlines. At this time, the team played their home games at South Side Park. In 1910, the team moved into historic Comiskey Park, which they would inhabit for more than eight decades.
Black Sox scandal involving White Stockings>White Sox players, apparently already coded into GNIRPS [Pennsylvania]:
The 1919 World Series, however, was marred by the Black Sox Scandal, in which several prominent members of the White Sox (including Cicotte and [Shoeless Joe] Jackson) were accused of conspiring with gamblers to lose games purposefully.
player/: 2 of 2 (and pertaining to baseball as well):
Upon the baseball field Joe Welling stood by first base, his whole body quivering with excitement. In spite of themselves all the players watched him closely. The opposing pitcher became confused.
“Now! Now! Now! Now!” shouted the excited man. “Watch me! Watch me! Watch my fingers! Watch my hands! Watch my feet! Watch my eyes! Let’s work together here! Watch me! In me you see all the movements of the game! Work with me! Work with me! Watch me! Watch me! Watch me!”
With runners of the Winesburg team on bases, Joe Welling became as one inspired. Before they knew what had come over them, the base runners were watching the man, edging off the bases, advancing, retreating, held as by an invisible cord. The players of the opposing team also watched Joe. They were fascinated. For a moment they watched and then, as though to break a spell that hung over them, they began hurling the ball wildly about, and amid a series of fierce animal-like cries from the coach, the runners of the Winesburg team scampered home.
Also this (concerning shoeless and stockings, and heels again):
shoel/: 1 of 1:
Elmer was putting new shoelaces in his shoes. They did not go in readily and he had to take the shoes off. With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.
heel: 3 of 3:
The piece of glass broken out at the corner of the window just nipped off the bare heel of the boy standing motionless and looking with rapt eyes into the face of the Christ.
Will Henderson, who had on a light overcoat and no overshoes, kicked the heel of his left foot with the toe of the right.
With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.
LaRue has the distinction of being the smallest town to ever have an NFL franchise. In the early 1920s LaRue was home to famous athlete Jim Thorpe, who coached and played for the Oorang Indians football team in 1922–1923.
Dr. Charles E. Sawyer – a homeopathic physician who is blamed for giving a false diagnosis of U.S. President Warren G. Harding that led to Harding’s premature death, practiced medicine in LaRue.
Until 2005, most of Thorpe’s biographers were unaware of his basketball career until a ticket discovered in an old book that year documented his career in basketball. By 1926, he was the main feature of the “World Famous Indians” of LaRue which sponsored traveling football, baseball and basketball teams. “Jim Thorpe and His World-Famous Indians” barnstormed for at least two years (1927–28) in parts of New York and Pennsylvania as well as Marion, Ohio. Although pictures of Thorpe in his WFI basketball uniform were printed on postcards and published in newspapers, this period of his life was not well documented.
