1887 · The Bagley Memorial Fountain

Age 5

"The Bagley Memorial Fountain was erected in 1887 with funds from the estate of John Judson Bagley. Bagley's will ordered the construction of the drinking fountain which would provide the people of Detroit ""water cold and pure as the coldest mountain stream."" H.H. Richards was the architect for the Romanesque-style, pink granite, lionhead fountain. It is engraved with the words, ""TESTAMENTARY GIFT FOR THE PEOPLE FROM JOHN JUDSON BAGLEY A.D. MDCCCLXXXVII""."
1901 · Assassination of Mckinley

Age 19

President William McKinley was shot at the Temple of Music, in the Pan-American Exposition, while shaking hands with the public. Leon Czolgosz shot him twice in the abdomen because he thought it was his duty to do so. McKinley died after eight days of watch and care. He was the third American president to be assassinated. After his death, Congress passed legislation to officially make the Secret Service and gave them responsibility for protecting the President at all times.

Name Meaning

1 English: probably from an otherwise unrecorded Old English personal name, cognate with the attested Continental Germanic form Timmo. This is of uncertain origin, perhaps a short form of Dietmar. The personal name Timothy was not in use in England until Tudor times, and is therefore not a likely source of this surname, which is medieval in origin.2 North German and Dutch: from a short form of the medieval personal name Dietmar.
