Balmer, which service was held at his late home on Broadway, Wednesday forenoon, and whose body now lies in Pioneer Cemetery, alongside of loving friends who preceded him into the life beyond some years previous:  MR. GEORGE LEWIS BOARDMAN was born in Plymouth, Ohio, and in this home, July 22, 1851.  He was the son of Lewis and Mrs. Minerva Boardman, who were among the pioneer residents of this town.  Almost his whole life period has been spent here.  He was married on Sept. 17th., 1879 to Miss Georgianna Ward, who now survives him.  For over 34 years they walked life's path together.  God blessed their home with four children, two sons and two daughters -- Mrs. Stella M. Eastman and Roland Lewis Boardman, Cleveland, Ohio;  Glenn A. Boardman and Marguerite Louise Boardman, both of Plymouth.  Mr. Boardman unite with the M.E. Church some years ago, which relation continued to the close of his life.  After many busy years of active duties he became ill about two years ago, since which time he has had several serious spells of sickness.  For some months his condition has seemed almost without hope to those who understood his condition.  For quite a few weeks he has been a great sufferer, which condition continued to the very end of his life.  On Monday morning at 3 o'clock the end came, the weary wheels of life ceased, and his spirit took its flight to the eternal world.  He was aged 62 years, 5 months and 7 days.  With Mrs. Boardman and his children there remain three grandchildren and an only brother, Mr. Dorman Boardman, of Howard, North Dakota.  The sympathies of her very large circle of friends have been with Mrs. Boardman and her family, as well as with their suffering husband and father through these many anxious weeks.  Our prayer is that the God of all grace may sustain and comfort their hearts through all the future.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  03 January 1914, Vol. 61, No. 7]

Booth, Orrin H. -- A WORTHY CITIZEN GONE – Death of Orin H. Booth.  It is our sad duty to chronicle this week the death of another of Mansfield’s leading citizens, for on Sunday morning at 8 o’clock, Orin H. Booth, after an illness of a number of months, passed away.  The deceased was born at Gates, New York, February 17th., 1831, and was therefore nearly fifty-three years of age.  For more than a quarter of a century he was a resident of this city and during that time he was ever prominently identified with its interests.  For the period of twenty-four years and to the time of his death he filled the position of Superintendent of Telegraph for the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, an office which he administered with great executive ability, to the honor of himself and the entire satisfaction of the company.  Among his fellow citizens Mr. Booth was quiet and reserved.  The soul of honor and integrity, he held the good esteem and confidence of all.  Never demonstrative in his professions of friendship, he was at the same time of a whole-souled and generous nature as many whom he befriended can testify.  The funeral of the deceased took place from his late residence, corner of Mulberry and Third, this afternoon at 2 o’clock.  The Autopsy – Some differences of opinion existing among the medical profession as to the nature of the ailment of the deceased, a post mortem examination was held, conducted by Drs. Keyes, Anderson, Mitchell, Bushnell, Patterson and Craig.  The autopsy revealed that there was no disease of lungs, liver, spleen, pancreas or bowels.  The heart was healthy, but in one kidney there were to hydatid tumors.  In the right lateral ventricle of the brain there was one hydatid tumor, and in the lest lateral ventricle were found three hydatid tumors known as cysticercus.  The coats of the larger arties of the brain were affected with athermanous degeneration, and death resulted from the exhaustion consequent to the diseased condition of the brain.   [Ohio Liberal:  02 January 1884]

Bottomly, Joseph -- Joseph Bottomly, who is employed by the Barnes Manufacturing Co. at its works near the water works pumping station, was called to his home at Bellville Monday morning by the news that his son had met death by his own hand. The boy's name is Elza Bottomly and he is about 16 years of age. Elza Bottomly and a brother were playing checkers Sunday afternoon, and a dispute arose regarding the game. Young Bottomly left the house soon after and did not return. His absence created no alarm as it was thought he had gone to the house of a neighbor to spend the night. Monday morning his body was found hanging by the neck to a three-quarter inch rope attached to a beam in the mow of the barn. Life was, of course, extinct, and had been for some time. Coroner Baughman and the father, Joseph Bottomly, were at once notified by telephone and left for Bellville. No cause is known for the rash act, and the affair will no doubt always be shrouded in mystery. Joseph Bottomly formerly resided in this city. Later in the same paper, additional information about this death was given as follows: Coroner Baughman held an inquest Monday morning to inquire into the causes which led to the suicide of Elza Bottomly. The coroner examined Joseph and Margaret Bottomly, the father and mother, Leroy Bottomly, the brother, and Wade Stewart, the boy with whom the deceased had been playing a game. All that was brought out by the testimony was that a dispute arose over a game of checkers, after which Elza left the house in anger. Nothing more was seen of the lad and Monday morning his lifeless body was found hanging from a beam in the mow of the barn. The coroner found that the boy had come to his death by suicide, but the cause which lead to the act the coroner was unable to ascertain. The coroner gives it as his opinion that the boy did not intend suicide, but merely intended to scare the boys, whom he expected would soon come to the barn as it was about time to feed the stock. The rope was so arranged that, when he stepped off of the hay, by catching hold of the other end of the rope, he could draw himself up, and prevent the rope around his neck from becoming taught. It is thought that when he stepped from the hay he went down farther than he anticipated and the knot in the rope tightened so quickly that he was unable to save himself. The act was done, it is thought, shortly after leaving the house, as ice had formed in the mouth and the body was cold and stiff when it was cut down at 8 o'clock Monday morning. The boy was 14 years and nine months old. Bottomly is probably the youngest victim that ever died by his own hand in this county. -- [RICHLAND SHIELD & BANNER: 21 March 1896, Vol. LXXVIII, No. 45]
