William Marion Langdon

At His Death (from Cincinnati Enquirer, March 2, 1904)
"When William Marion Langdon, who died at his home, on Carter street, Monday night of typhoid fever, was a boy Norwood was know as Sharpsburg. He early identified himself with the progressive element. He became the B. & O. Railroad Agent here, and was in charge of the postoffice until 1892. Soon after the name Sharpsburg was discarded for that of Norwood he engaged in the coal businees, becoming the head of a company that to-day has its office and yards in East Norwood. When Senator Joseph B. Foraker stepped down and out of the Norwood Board of Education Langdon was elected his successor. Mr. Langdon was a member of the board for eight years. About the same time he started a movement to have a Board of Health created. When legislation was enacted creating this board he was appointed one of the members. In 1894 he became interested in mission work, and was one of the founders and for years a Director of the Rescue Mission in Cincinnati. For several years he has been a teacher at the Union Bethel and Glenn Home Mission School. The funeral will take place from the Harmon Memorial Baptist Church at 2:30 o'clock to-morrow (March 3, 1904) afternoon, the burial being at the Pleasant Ridge Cemetery."
