P/O John A McIntyre

Fallen HeroPatrolman John A McIntyre

30 July 1902: Patrolman John A. McIntyre of the Northwestern district, 1724 North Calhoun St., died yesterday morning about 11 o'clock of nervous protest. He had not been in good health for the past two years, but was struck on July 4 and thereafter had not been on duty. He was born in this city 53 years ago and was the son of the late Michael McIntyre. He was formally deployed in Druid Hill Park. He was appointed to the police force on April 4, 1887. Lieutenant . Carter, who was acting Capt. of the district yesterday, stated that patrolman McIntyre was a very efficient officer and that he had made credible arrests. On December 12, 1892, a pocketbook was snatched from the hands of Mr. Julia Eichelberger at the corner of Lindon and Lafayette Avenue. She reported the case at once to the police, and from the descriptions given, patrolman McIntyre arrested a few hours later Daniel Thomas, John Smith, and James Kristen, all black males. Thomas was sentenced to the penitentiary for 18 months, Smith for three years, and Kristen for eight years. Patrolman McIntyre was a member of St. Gregory's Catholic Church. He belonged to the Eutaw conclave, and the Heptasophs belonged to the Catholic benevolent Legion. A widow, who was Miss Katherine Fillmore, and four sons—Frank, Leo, George and Charles McIntyre—survived him
