Samuel P. Erdman1

M, #11913, b. 24 January 1857, d. 29 August 1911
  • Last Edited: 28 Jun 2020
  • Samuel P. Erdman was born on 24 January 1857.
  • He was the son of Jacob W. Erdman and Catharine Seitz.
  • Samuel P. Erdman married Christianna Maurer, daughter of Manassas Daniel Maurer and Elizabeth Coleman, circa 1879, PA.1,2
  • On October 25, 1912, Alexander Klinger pleaded guilty in Dauphin County court to involuntary manslaughter in causing the death of Samuel P. Erdman, in a bar fight in the Erdman Hotel on August 28, 1911. He was sentenced to serve 18 months in prison, but he was released several months early because of good behavior. Reportedly, on his release, Klinger vowed never to touch liquor again.
    Originally, reports of the fight varied, but one newspaper story included witness accounts:
    HOTEL OWNER SAW MURDER
    W. A. Kessler Witnessed Fatal Fight At Erdman
    POLITICS CAUSE OF CRIME
    Both Klinger, the Prisoner, and Erdman, the Victim, Were Candidates for School Director On Same Ticket and In Discussing Their Candidacies Both Men Became Incensed.
    Politics precipitated the fatal fight Saturday evening, August 26, at the Erdman hotel, Erdman, Dauphin county, between Samuel Erdman and Alexander Klinger, two Schuylkill countians. As a result one man is dead, the other in prison and two counties stirred up over the question of ownership of the accused man.
    To-morrow morning at 10 o'clock is the time set for the hearing of Klinger before Squire Tobias Klinger at Gratz. It has been decided to have the hearing up-county because it is easier to take Klinger there than it is to bring the witnesses to Harrisburg. That the fatal blow was struck in self-defense will be the ground on which Klinger's attorneys will make the fight for his life. The true story of the inception of the fight was not learned until to-day. The following version is the one that William A. Kessler, proprietor of the Erdman hotel, will tell and what Klinger's jury will hear:
    Erdman drove up to the hotel early Saturday evening and after purchasing a drink took a seat on the porch, where he was joined fifteen minutes later by Klinger. Their conversation naturally drifted on politics, both being candidates for the Republican nomination for School Director in their township.
    Personalities entered into the political discussion, but neither lost his head. They sat for an hour, then went inside to get a drink. Elbows crooked on the bar, politics were not forgotten; the discussion continued.
    "Oh, well," Klinger was heard to say, "I wouldn't care at all, if you hadn't made me pay that lumber bill twice."
    "I never made you pay a bill twice," Erdman retorted.
    "Whoever says that is a ____ ____ liar.'
    Blow Fell Short.
    No sooner had Klinger ripped out the oath than Erdman, according to the witnesses, made a pass at him. The blow fell short and then Klinger was on Erdman and they rolled to the floor. They were pulled apart. Neither was hurt, though several blows were exchanged. Klinger got on his feet and stood by the bar.
    Looking around a moment later he saw Erdman crawling towards him on the floor, coming on hands and knees. Then Klinger lifted his right foot and delivered a crushing blow on the crawling man's right shoulder, caving it in.
    Death occurred the ensuing Tuesday night from congestion of the lungs. How Klinger fled, putting the brand of guilt on himself, remained at his brother's in Shamokin and several days later gave himself up, has already been told. Klinger's defense, it is understood, will be that he thought Erdman was coming to attack him again and that he kicked him to save himself.
    Edward E. Beidleman up until 2 o'clock this afternoon, had not been retained as counsel for Klinger, though the arrested man had sent for him. Later Mr. Beidleman called on Klinger. The trial will take place in Dauphin county, though it is hardly likely that it will be held next September, as there are already four murder cases listed. A Coroner's jury yesterday rendered a verdict that Erdman came to his death from a blow or blows received at the hands of Klinger.
    Harrisburg Daily Independent, 05 Sep 1911, Tue, Pages 1, 7
    Klinger was eventually charged with murder but, as noted, pleaded guilty to manslaughter. In jail while awaiting trial, Klinger attempted suicide by cutting his wrists with pieces of a broken mirror, but the cuts did not prove serious.
    Both Klinger and Erdman were residents of Schuylkill County, and Erdman actually died there, but the fight causing the fatal injuries occurred in Dauphin County. This led to a jurisdictional squabble between the two counties, as neither county wanted to be charged with handling the matter. As one newspaper article explained:
    A nice question of law enters into the controversy. Section 48 of the Penal Code provides that "to obviate any difficulty as to where the alleging of a crime takes place" each county shall have jurisdiction 500 yards on the opposite side of the boundary line. That is, any felony committed within 500 yards of a county line, that county has the power of calling the criminal to account.
    "It is a fact that the Erdman hotel, where the fight took place, is about 200 yards from the Schuylkill county line, being situated in Dauphin county." Officials from both counties argued that the other should try the case. Eventually, the matter was taken over by Dauphin County.3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
