J. P. Simpers of Maryland in 1887

Article in Saturday, October 1, 1887 of The Lancaster Intelligencer follows. Not related, just posting info I have here in the above newspaper.
Title: Death Of Wounded Burglar.
Article: " Mel Gregory, aged 22 years, who says he is a son of E.S.Gregory, a hardware merchant of Cohoes, N. Y., died Thrusday night in Elkton jail." (I am assuming this is Elkton MD.) "He had been shot by J.P. Simpers, a merchant of Calvert, Md., near the Pennsylvania line, while leaving Simpers' store, after having robbed it, with two confederates. The latter removed him to a barn where he was found. He had been shot in the back, near the right hip. He stated that this was the first offense. Coroner Littzenberg has summoned a jury of inquest."
