   ALEXANDER MARTIN COVINGTON. Ref: 15195. Born: 19 Mar 1851 at Livingston KY. Father: Covington, George Washington, Father Ref: 13772. Mother:

   Hughes, Eliza, Mother Ref: 15187.  Mar: 31 Dec 1876 at Metropolis IL to Taylor, Sarah 15198. Died: 4 Jun 1901 at Metropolis IL aged 50.  Known as Doc as

   he was actually a doctor. Was living at Covington Hotel at the time of his death, previously called the McCauley House, on Front Street on the Ohio River, in

   Metropolis, Massac County, Illinois.

  

   He is buried with his sister Martha A Covington in the Covington family plot in the Metropolis City Cemetery in Massac County IL.

  

   Letter from Stella, Regina (?) in 2006: My Grandfather, Dr. Alexander M. Covington bought the old McCauley house in

   about 1872. It was located on Front and Ferry Street, next to the old Opera House of the 1800s right on the Ohio River. It was renamed the Covington Hotel

   and operated until 1901 by Doc Covington until his demise in a gun battle at the hotel in June of 1901. He and Sheriff Oaks shot it out and they both died within

    time.

  

   The hotel was then operated by my great uncles until it was torn down in 1959. My father donated the property to the city for a city part in 1969 through Harry

   Humma and the Oddfellows as they sought the piece for that purpose. Now part of that land has been leased, without our permission, I might add, to be used

   for 50 years as a parking lot for the boat and casino and not a City Park, as promised!

  

   The piece was used by the Historical Society for many years and then taken from their use for this terrible use. At least they could have put the park

   somewhere else and named it after the Covingtons, or my father, Mason E. Bruner, who was born, raised, drafted, and loved Metropolis all of his life. The

   Millers also donated land but the park became the Dorothy Miller Park without mention of the nearly 100 years our family owned that land and lived there on the

    river. How sad for us and the city. Maybe they will make amends and replace the park to another location and at least mention the Covingtons and make our

   history there for some better use than a gambling parking lot.

  

   There are three big trees in the current park that were next to the old Covington Hotel. Some It was also called Doc's Saloon on the first floor, and then the

   Covington Tavern in it's last days. Then we paid taxes on the vacant land for years before donating it for the park. I love going down there and sitting and

   thinking about my family. I have a picture of me at the hotel as an infant taken in 1947 right on the river. I also have photos of the Covington Luncheon that sat

   right at the entrance to the Casino under water in the flood of 1936. My Uncles, George Ivy Covington, and Grover Covington, brothers of my Grandmother, May

    Belle Covington, operated both establishments for many years.

  

   George Ivy Covington still has a living daughter whom I believe to be the oldest living person from Metropolis, Nell Covington Royal, who lives in Georgia and

   visited Metropolis frequently until recently.

  

   Oh, well, I would love to see that Newspaper article. I would also love to hear of others sharing memories of Metropolis in the "Old Days." - Thanks, Stella,

   Regina"(Last updated: 02/04/2010 15:26:28)
