Coates, J.P. -- A telegram was received Monday by Mr. Floren P. Gass, informing him of the death of his uncle, Mr. J.P. Coates, at Passadina [sic.], California.  Mr. Coates was a brother of Mrs. Geo. W. Geddes, and resided at Chicago for several years before removing to California.  He made the change about five years ago for the benefit of his failing health.  He was fifty-six years of age.  He married a sister of Jeff Sprengle, Esq., of Ashland, Ohio, who, with two children, survive him.  All who knew Mr. Coates admired and loved him, and will be pained to hear of his death.  [Mansfield Herald:  21 October 1886]

Coates, Robert -- Mansfield.  Robert Coates died last night at 12 o'clock at his home, 202 West Fourth Street of spinal disease with which had had been sufferer for the past eight years.  He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Virginia Haines and Miss Harriet Coates and two brothers, Capt. Erastus Coates and John S. Coates.  He also leaves a niece, Miss Harriet Haines, a teacher at Marion avenue building.  The funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. F.A. Gould.  Robt. Coates was born in Mansfield 67 years ago and has always been a resident of this city.  He served in the civil war as a soldier-citizen of the type known by regular Union soldiers as "squirrel hunters".  In 1863 when the Federalists were pushing the confederates northward the latter under the command of Gen. Kirby Smith threatened Cincinnati when a call was issued to the citizens of Ohio to rally assistance of the Queen City.  These men were devoid of uniform or equipment and went as they could provide themselves.  When the Confederates were driven from Cincinnati and the city was safe, they returned to their homes.  Mr. Coates's record in peace is equally as creditable as his record in war, and he died without an enemy.  He had always been an exemplary citizen and had been a follower of the golden rule.  Believing it more blessed to give than to receive, he was ever ready to share his last penny for the succor of a fellow being in distress.  Though never a member of any special church, nor identifying himself with any particular denomination, he had ever endeavored to conduct himself righteously and to walk just in the sight of God and his fellow men.

Cobean, Thompson -- I.O.O.F. Memorial.  Again has death invaded our household and carried another trophy to the silent mansions of the dead.  Brother Thompson Cobean is dead.  After long and severe suffering which he endured with patience and resignation, he died at his home in this city on Monday the 3d. inst.  We all remember Bro. Cobean, and although not free from faults, yet all concede him to have been kind, generous and humane, always ready to forgive and forget, practicing largely on the grand maxim that "to err is human, to forgive divine."  He was devotedly attached to our Order and was ever ready to extend the open hand of charity to those in distress.  But he is gone.  Let us in the words of our ritual, "forget his frailties, and cherish in our memories his many virtues, entertaining this belief that he died in hope of a blessed immortality, and has he has passed beyond the care of his brethren, let us see to it that his widow and orphan children are properly cared for in the rough battle of life, which they must now fight alone.  We recommend that this report be spread upon the records of the Lodge, a copy presented to his family, and that it be published in the city papers.  -- B. Burns, Jno. A. Lee and H.C. Hedges, Committee, Mansfield, April 7, 1876.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  29 April 1876]

Cochran, Mahlon W. -- Butler, Ohio, March 16.  The memorial services of the late Dr. M.W. Cochran, who died at his residence in this place November 30, was held at the Progressive church at North Liberty, last Sunday, at 2:30 p.m.  The services were conducted by Rev. Huntsburger of the M.E. church of Amity and were the most impressive ever before heard by those in attendance on a similar occasion.  The Odd Fellows' lodges from Amity and Butler and the Daughters of Rebecca lodge and Lucullus lodge, K. of P., of Butler, attended in a body.  All met at the K. of G.E. hall at North Liberty, where they formed in rank and marched to the church, the K. of P's leading and the Amity lodge Odd Fellows, Butler Lodge, Odd Fellows and Daughters of Rebecca, following in the order named.  The friends of the deceased marched between open ranks of the various lodges and upon reaching the church, the lodges countermarched and entered.  The services were opened with music by a quartet composed of Mr. Stichler, Mrs. Oberlin, Ramsey and Professor J.S. Garber, rendering the selection, "Beautiful Golden Gates" in a manner most thrilling.  Prayer was offered, a scriptural reading and brief talk concerning the character and personal qualities of Dr. Cochran followed, after which Rev. Huntsburger discoursed at length from the 90th. Psalm.  So realistically were the deeds and acts portrayed incident to the life of the deceased, that tears coursed down the checks of many who were listeners.  The services throughout were of a very affecting nature and at the close each and every individual manifested a feeling of bitter remorse.  Despite the inclemency of the weather the church was filled to its utmost capacity by friends of the deceased who had come to hear the last and sad rites of their departed brother, many being unable to secure comfortable standing room.  The services will long be remembered by all present.  [Bellville Messenger:  18 March 1897]

Cockley, D.L. -- SUDDEN SUMMONS COMES TO COL. COCKLEY -- He Drops Dead at his Home in Shelby While Entertaining Friends  -- Col. D.L. Cockley dropped dead at his home in Shelby Thursday night at about 11:00.  Such was the startling news received by telephone of the members of the Elk order at their rooms on East Fourth street shortly after midnight.  At that hour the annual Christmas reception and ball of the Elks was in the heighth of its glory.  The announcement that a member of the order hero had been suddenly stricken down in the prime of life and in apparently excellent health created quite a stir among the brothers.  The message was received by ex-Mayor T.J. Green, of Shelby, who was in attendance at the brilliant social session.  Past Exalted Ruler George Knofflock made the sad announcement in the ball room.  It was immediately decided to close the dance out of respect to the deceased brother, and Exalted Ruler John H. Coss so announced.  The company which had been so lively but a few minutes before immediately departed for their homes, conversing apparently only when necessary and then in subdued tones.  A telephone message from Shelby to the NEWS gives the particulars of the sad death.  Col. Cockley, as stated heretofore, was apparently enjoying the best of health.  He had invited and was entertaining at his home a party of young people.  The evening was drawing to a close and Mr. Cockley was engaged in bidding some of his guests good night at the door.  He turned to answer some one in the room behind him when suddenly he fel over into the arms of a man present.  It seems that death was instant, for Dr. Bland, who was in an adjoining room, was called and reached the stricken man's side in a few seconds, says that Mr. Cockley never spoke a word after the attack and that his heart gave but one faint flutter.  The doctor says that death was due to heart failure.  The most of the guests took their departure almost immediately.  Col. Cockley was about 58 years of age, the exact date of his birth not being obtainable at this writing.  The deceased leaves a wife and three children.  The children are Miss Fannie Cockley and Willard and Harry Cockley.  The wife was in New York, the daughter visiting a friend in Toledo and the son Harry was in Crestline visiting his wife's people.  Dispatches were at once sent to the absent member of the family notifying them of the sad death of the husband and father.  Mrs. Cockley is expected to arrive in Shelby about midnight and no funeral arrangements it is understood, will be made until she arrives.  Mr. Cockley became a member of Mansfield lodge, No. 56, B.P.O. Elks, Oct. 29, 1901, and it was peculiar that he should be taken away just about the hour that the usual toast was being offered in remembrance of absent brothers at the banquet in the Elk rooms last night.  Col. Cockley was a member of the Masonic Blue lodge of Shelby and president of the Shelby Masonic Temple association.  He was also a member of Mansfield Commandery Knights Templar, No. 21.  He joined the latter organization some 15 years ago.  He was a member of the Colonial Club of Shelby and a member of the Union League Club of Cleveland, a well known Republican club.  It has already been arranged that the Elks of this city will go to Shelby and attend the funeral in a body and it is expected that the Knights Templar of this city will also attend.  On the occasion of the initiation of Congressman Skiles into order of Elks here last Tuesday night Col. Cockley was present.  Col. Cockley's death will be a sad blow to the town of Shelby, for he was always foremost in advancing the city's interest in an industrial way.  He was financially interested in many of its manufacturing plants, etc. including The Beardsley & Hubbs Automobile Company and the Sheets Printing Company.  Ohio may fairly claim the honor for one of her citizens of having founded the seamless steel tube industry in the United States.  A decade ago the art of making cold-drawn seamless steel tubing was unknown in America, and the process was kept a close secret by the two English firms which controlled the entire industry in the world.  American bicycle manufactu----- and others to whom the use of this material was of the utmost importance were compelled to place their orders with the English houses months in advance and sometimes were compelled to almost beg for the goods they had to have.  Ten years ago, however, Colonel D.L. Cockley and a few other enterprising Ohio men, organized the Shelby Steel Tube company, which was then regarded as a hazardous enterprise and began the manufacture in a small way.  At first the capacity of their works was just 250,000 feet per month.  In addition to this, American ingenuity and skill was able to produce tubing in a variety of forms which the foreign manufacturers had never dared attempt.  Today the American steel tubing virtually controls the market of the world and is of a better quality and is produced in a great variety of forms unknown to the trade a dozen years ago.  Colonel Cockley was a pioneer in this great industry in America and reaped the handsome fortune his enterprise merited from its success.  Colonel Cockley is a native of Richland county.  He was born in Lexington and had his education in the village school.  He entered the Union army April 18, 1861, when but 17, as a private in the Fifteenth Ohio volunteer infantry.  Within 10 months he had arisen to the rank of lieutenant and assisted in the recruiting and organizing a company of cavalry which became a part of the Tenth Ohio cavalry in which he served three years and rose by his gallantry to the rank of captain.  With his regiment he was, with the army of the Cumberland from Nashville to Atlanta and when that army was reorganized by General W.T. Sherman, Captain Cockley remained and saw arduous service in Sherman's immortal march to the sea, participating in nearly every battle in that great campaign.  During his last year in the army he was aid-de-camp on the staff of General S.D. Atkins and also did considerable special service on the staff of General Kirkpatrick.  In August 1897, he was presented with a special medal by act of congress for gallantry in action in the battle of Waynesboro, Ga., Dec. 4, 1864, an honor and distinction enjoyed by few persons.  Upon his return to civil life, Captain Cockley first engaged in buying Texas cattle and shipping them through to Missouri, an enterprise which was very successful financially.  In 1867, he began his career as a manufacturer and founded a harness pad and trimming factory in Mansfield.  Two years later he removed to Shelby and became a salesman for a wholesale hardware house, at the same time having a large interest in a Clayville, N.Y. factory for the manufacture of forks, scythes, etc.  He continued in this business for seven years, adding some other manufacturing interests in the meantime.  Later he engaged in the retail hardware business in Shelby disposing of it to enter the Shelby Mill company in 1881, of which he continued president until 1892.  In December, 1890, Colonel Cockley assisted in organizing the Shelby Steel Tube company, of which he became president and general-manager, a position he retained continuously until 1897.  He was also prominently identified with the establishment of the Shelby Cycle Manufacturing company.  His business ability and shrewdness contributed greatly to the success of both enterprises.    Since disposing of his interests in the tube company Colonel Cockley has been prominent in establishing the First National Bank of Crestline and the Rib Manufacturing company, of Shelby, a general novelty works, of which he was the president.  Colonel Cockley has been active in the Republican party and taken great interest in its success.  He has been especially identified with the growth and upbuilding of his home town of Shelby and his energy and enterprise have contributed notably to the development of the town.  In the seventies he served as town councilman and in the eighties as member of the school board and by his business tact and direction did much toward making Shelby one of the most attractive and progressive little cities in the state.  Colonel Cockley derives his title from his appointment on the staff of Governor Bushnell, an honor which came to him unsought and was highly prized because it evidenced the high personal estate felt for him by Governor Bushnell and which his wide circle of friends felt was worthily bestowed.  Funeral arrangements will be announced as soon as they have been made.  The Elks will make arrangements to go to Shelby in a special electric car, the time of which will be duly announced.

Coe, H. Virginia (Hershiser) -- Following is the obituary read at the funeral of the deceased.  "Leaves have their time to fall, And flowers to wither at the North wind's breath.  And stars to set, but all, Thou hast all seasons for thine own, O Death!"  Our departed young friend, Virginia, wife of Evan O. Coe, was the youngest daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Willard J. Hershiser.  She was born near Shelby, June 22nd., 1890, and departed this life on Monday afternoon, August 3rd., 1914, aged 24 years, 1 month and 12 days, leaving to her deeply bereaved husband an infant son, whom his dying mother named James Willard.  Mrs. Coe's residence through life was in Richland County, until this spring, when she and her husband crossed the line to Huron County.  After the studies of the primary grades in the rural schools, she entered the High School in Plymouth, and pursued the full course, graduating with her class four years ago.  Her marriage with Mr. Coe was solemnized July 23, 1913.  Not a few of us here remember the occasion when the customary congratulations were extended to the newly-wedded pair, and cordial wishes for a long and happy journey through life were made.  But the uncertainty of life is again forced upon us as we see the happy bride of a year ago now borne beyond the gates of death to the life elysian.  Virginia, as her loved friends called her, was a Christian from her childhood, and in childhood years united with the church of her parents, the Methodist Episcopal.  But after her marriage she transferred her relations to the church of her husband and his family, the Presbyterian.  In both churches she was known as a faithful and intelligent Christian.  I have met Mrs. Coe in her home, in the social circle, and in the church services.  Everywhere you met her she impressed one as a model young woman, exhibiting quietly such graceful excellencies of character and conduct that displayed, not only her careful home training, but that she had learned the lessons of life as one who knew how to appreciate, appropriate, and use them.  Her face, always bright with intelligence and refinement stamped upon it was sunshine itself.  I have had no occasion to say these things outside of private conversation before, and then only a few times.  But today they are appropriate, and justly honor the memory of this precious young life.  She was always the soul of unselfishness, thinking and doing always for others before herself, and her Christian faith quietly, but none the less faithfully manifest, blessed her life, and comforted her to the end, when she committed herself to her Heavenly Father.  Not alone will the homes of her dearest friends be the poorer for her absence, but the community of young people among whom she moved will feel deeply her loss, but their lives will be all the sweeter for the memories of her beautiful years on earth.  She leaves her deeply bereaved husband, her beloved parents Mr. and Mrs. Willard Hershiser, her brothers John and George Hershiser, and her only sister Mrs. Anna Clark, also several aunts, uncles and cousins, with a host of sorrowing friends.  <<scripture omitted>> Funeral services were held from her late home, west of town, Wednesday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Howard M. Welsh of Iberia, formerly pastor of the Presbyterian church here, and Rev. R.H. Balmer, local pastor of the M.E. church, the pall bearers being her sister and five of her young lady cousins, the interment being made in Greenlawn cemetery.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  08 August 1914, Vol. 61, No. 38]

Cole, Joseph -- The death of Joseph Cole, a destitute white man at Dennis O'Brien's boarding house on North Main Street, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, reveals quite a story of love.  Cole came here some weeks ago and was taken sick.  Quick consumption wasted his body and just before he died he asked that a telegram be sent to Mrs. Bertha Bullet at Pittsburg.  His request was granted and this morning she came.  Imagine the surprise of those connected with the case when Mrs. Bullett introduced herself.  She is a negress, almost as black as the proverbial ace of spades.  Her identity could not be denied.  She immediately made preparations for the funeral and guaranteed to pay all expenses.  The dusky female is rather reticent about her relation with Cole, but from what the infirmary officials could learn it is believed that they lived together as man and wife until he left Pittsburg.  Mrs. Bullet took dinner at the infirmary and the funeral was postponed until 4 o'clock this afternoon so that she could come from the infirmary.  Cole's remains were taken to Schroer's undertaking establishment from which the funeral took place.  [Mansfield Evening News:  17 January 1890, Vol. 5, No. 269]

Coleman, J.M. --- It is with sadness that we come before the public with the announcement of the death of J.M. Coleman who died at his home in Bellville, O., Jan. 5th., 1887.  Mr. Coleman had been an invalid for almost a year.  About the first of February last he was taken sick and the result of this sickness was the entire loss of the use of his limbs, since early last spring being entirely helpless.  Although his affliction was severe yet it did not take the sunshine from his disposition.  Unrelenting disease took firm hold upon him, and as its victim, compelled him to withdraw from the busy scenes of a business life, and bore him from social circles, compelling him to exchange the marts of business for the sick chamber, and to spend long and restless hours upon his cot, while a busy world hurried by;  disease did all this but it failed to break that sweet and happy disposition which made him a general favorite.  <text omitted>  The funeral of Mr. Coleman took place at his late residence on Markey St. Friday at 2 p.m., Rev. Austin Philpott conducting the services.  - P.  --  [Bellville Star:  13 January 1887, Vol. 10, No. 16]

Colgrove, A.C. -- Plymouth Advertiser says: "On Friday last, a dispatch was received by the friends of Mr. A.C. Colgrove of this place, that he had met with an accident in a Railroad disaster at Blairsville, Pa., and Mr. B.B. Taylor and Mrs. Colgrove started for the above place on the first train.  Nothing further was heard from them until Saturday evening when a dispatch was received that Mr. C. had his left leg crushed from the knee down, and the right one badly scalded, and impossible for him to recover.  On Monday, another dispatch was received that he was dead.  His remains were taken to New York to his former home and interred.  As yet we are unable to give particulars, but the supposition is as follows:  Mr. C. left this place a few days before with a load of stock, and it is thought that two trains must have collided, and he had been in the caboose car of the forward train, where he was injured and scalded.  Since the above was in type, Mr. Taylor as returned, the facts being about as given above.  It seems that Mr. C. was asleep in the forward end of the caboose car, and was awakened by the egress of his fellow passengers, and started to the rear end of the car, and had got to the door, when the approaching locomotive struck them.  One of his limbs was crushed to a jelly from the knee down, and the other one badly scalded.  No other person was injured.  It is thought he had been awake he would not have been injured.  The accident occurred on Tuesday evening and he remained conscious until within a few hours of his death on Sabbath morning at 12.15.  He seems to have suffered no pain at all, and expressed his willingness to die.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  03 October 1874]

Colwell, Dessie

Colwell, James D. -- DEATH CAME SUDDENLY -- To James D. Colwell Who Expired of Apoplexy -- A sudden and unexpected death was that which overtook James D. Colwell, one of Mansfield's best known and highly respected citizens who dropped dead shortly before 5 o'clock Tuesday afternoon at the corner of Main street and Park avenue west.  He was on his way home to supper and had turned the corner onto Park avenue at Caldwell & Bloor's when he was seen to fall to the pavement.  Those who saw him ran at once to his assistance and he was carried into Caldwell & Bloor's drug store where Dr. Maglott attended him, but the stricken man never rallied after he ell and passed away almost as soon as he had been carried into the drug store.  Later Dr. Craig, the family physician, arrived and Coroner Bushnell, having been notified of the death, came and viewed the body.  It was a sad and sudden blow to the relatives and many friends of the deceased who had been on the street during the day in excellent sprits and apparently in good health, though it is understood that he mentioned to one person that he was not feeling very well, but it was thought to be nothing at all serious.  It was a sad task to convey the news of the death to the wife and other relatives, including Samuel and William G.

Colwell, Mary M. (Fitting) -- A Tribute To Mrs. M. Colwell -- Editor:  I desire to avail myself of your columns to give a brief sketch of the revered Mrs. Mary M. Colwell, whose tender thread of life was severed April 1, and whose obsequies occurred on the 4th.  Mrs. Colwell was found on her bed nearly inanimate with paralysis early in the morning of March 26th.  The best medical skill and the constant vigil of her friends did not avail to arouse her from her deep lethargy, but her vital spark expired without a struggle and her features were placid as in peaceful sleep.  Rev. Edmunds officiated at the obsequies, and among those present from abroad at the last sad rites were Mrs. Charles Bird, J.D. Colwell, Will Colwell, Misses Agnes and Maggie Colwell, of Mansfield;  Mrs. Frederick Fitting, Mrs. Shuler and daughters, and Frank Thrailkill, of Bellville;  Mrs. H.H. Adams, of Mt. Gilead, and George Thrailkill and family, of Crestline.  The deceased, whose maiden name was Fitting, was born in Knox County, Ohio, Nov. 14, 1808, her father being Casper Fitting, who removed to that locality from Chester County, Penn., in 1802.  The numerous progeny of Casper Fitting, consisting of two sons and seven daughters, were noted for longevity, and by their culture, intelligence and genial attributes, high social prestige.  Frederick Fitting, who died at Bellville about three years ago, was a member of the family of whom Mrs. Sarah Durbin, of Salem, Oregon, who is remarkably alert and vigorous of intellect at the age of 92 years, and Mrs. Catherine Phelps, of Sacramento, Cal, who has attained the age of 77, are the only one living.  Mary M. Fitting and Robert Colwell plighted their troth at the marriage alter Sept. 8, 1861, in Lexington.  He was born in Shippensburg, Pa., in 1806, came to Troy Township in the era when little but the rude and sublime beauty and grandeur enchanted the vision of the pioneers and he died in Lexington, Jan. 31, 1884, after a long and trying ordeal of suffering from senile gangrene.  Mrs. Mary M. Colwell had for forty years adorned and gave prestige to the social circles of Lexington by her genial presence, and it is not fulsome praise to say that her name was synonymous with truth and honor and her whole character was built up in faultless symmetry with all the elements of noble womanhood.  The infirmities incident to her many years had no engendered in her nature a spark of cynicism, and her amiable presence was like a gracious benediction to her large circle of friends, whose hearts were keenly anguished by the calamity of her death and all revere the memory of her name.  -- A.H.M., Lexington, O. April 7, 1890.  --  [Mansfield Evening News:  10 April 1890, Vol. 6, No. 30]

Colwell, Samuel B. -- Mr. Samuel B. Colwell, living on East Diamond Street near Third, died quite suddenly Monday afternoon.  During the past year or so Mr. Colwell, who is an aged man, has been a sufferer from paralysis, having received several severe strokes during the last winter.  Monday he was not feeling quite as well as usual, and about 4 o'clock while sitting in his chair surrounded by the family, he was suddenly taken with an attack of paralysis, and in less than five minutes passed quietly away.  Mr. Colwell was 68 years old, and was an old pioneer of this county.  He spent his early life at Lexington, where a great number of his relatives reside.  The funeral took place from his late residence, 38 East Diamond Street, this (Wednesday) morning at 9 o'clock.  From thence the body was taken to Lexington for interment.  From a personal acquaintance we can say that we never knew a more upright and honest man than Mr. Colwell, and in his death feel the loss of a friend indeed.  The grief-stricken family have our sympathies.  [Ohio Liberal:  25 June 1879]

Condon, Elisha -- Elisha Condon, of Springfield Township, died on Wednesday, Sept. 3d., at his residence, three miles west of Mansfield.  Mr. Condon was born in 1897 in Westmoreland County, Pa., and was about 83 years old at the time of his death.  He moved to Mansfield, Ohio, in the fall of 1814, when he remained until the spring of 1815, when he moved with his father's family to Springfield Township and built the second cabin in that township.  In 1834 he moved to the farm where he has since resided and where he died.  Mr. Condon was married in 1836 to Nancy Flora, who survives her husband at the age of 74.  They were the parents of ten children, eight of whom are living.  He was stricken with an apoplectic fit on the 28th. of August and died from that cause a week later.  The funeral took place Sept. 4th. and the remains were buried in the Mansfield Cemetery.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev.

Condon, Nancy (Flora) -- Mrs. Nancy Condon, widow of the late Elisha Condon, met with a horrible accident shortly before Wednesday noon at her home three miles west of the city, near Condon Siding.  Her clothes caught fire, evidently by a spark from the stove, and she was so terribly burned that she died Wednesday evening at 8:15 o'clock.  Though she was nearly 83 years of age, she was in good health and was vigorous, for one of such an advanced age.  Mrs. Condon was alone at the time of the accident.  She was engaged in getting dinner about 11 o'clock and it is supposed that a spark from the stove set fire to her clothes and in a moment her clothes were in flames.  She had the presence of mind to throw water on herself, and succeeded in extinguishing the flames, though not until her clothing had nearly all been burned off of her.  The entire upper part of her body was a mass of burns and the side of her face was burned.  Her son, Frank, who resides on the farm was doing some chores at the time and when he came in to the house he was horrified to find that his mother had been burned.  Mrs. Condon was conscious and remained so until within three minutes before she died.  Drs. Harris and Mitchell were called and rendered medical attention.  At first Mrs. Condon did not suffer a great deal of pain, but when the reaction came she suffered intensely until he passed away.  Mrs. Condon was born in Maryland, March 15, 1816.  Her maiden name was Nancy Flora and she has been a resident of Richland County for more than 65 years.  Her husband, Elisha Condon, has been dead about five years.  She was the mother of 10 children of whom four sons and four daughters survive.  The daughters are Mrs. Stephen Balliett, of Abilene, Kas.;  Mrs. John Underwood, Mrs. Ira McCoy and Mrs. F.D. Webber, of this city.  The sons are John Condon, of Wyandot County;  William Condon, of Hardin County;  Frank Condon, of Springfield Township, and Luther Condon, of Madison Township.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  04 November 1898, Vol. 14, No. 91]

Condon, Richard Sr. -- Richard Condon, who was buried yesterday was one of the early pioneers of Richland County.  He was the oldest of six children, and his father was the first Justice of the Peace in Springfield Township.  The family came from New Jersey and settled in this county in 1814.  Fourteen years ago he removed from Mansfield to Charlotte, Michigan, where he lived with his son Richard Condon, Jr., until his death a few days ago.  In 1827 the deceased joined the Masonic order, and was undoubtedly the oldest member of the order in Mansfield at the time of his death.  During his lifetime, while a resident in this county, he held various offices of trust given by the Democrats.  At the time of his death he was eighty-seven years and six months old.  [Ohio Liberal:  23 July 1879]

Wyandt, to complete the remainder of their days. Her illness, which was a form of bronchitis, was of more than a year's duration, and although she suffered much, she did not murmur, but bore all with that Christian resignation, which characterized her through life, knowing that she would soon enter that peaceful abode where, "The wicked cease from troubling, And the weary are at rest." The sympathies of the entire community are with the venerable father, who must, ere many years, follow her to the heaven of rest. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 08 January 1885, Vol. 35, No. 8]

Conn, Andrew -- Andrew Conn, Esq., died at Van Wert, last week, of cancer of the stomach, aged 76 years.  The deceased was a former citizen of Mansfield and was twice elected Treasurer of Richland County.  [Ohio Liberal:  09 July 1879]

Conn, Andrew -- Mr. Andrew Conn died at the residence of his son, John A. Conn, in this city on last Monday, June 23rd, 1879, at 9:15 a.m. after an illness that has existed since Thanksgiving Day 1877.  Mr.  Conn was born in Cecil County, Maryland, March 19th, 1803, and consequently his age was 76 years, three months and four days. In the year 1812 he with his parents settled in Pennsylvania, and in 1827 moved to Mansfield, Ohio. Previous to coming to Ohio on the 9th day of October, 1827, he was married at Florence, Pennsylvania, to Miss Margaret Patterson, who survives him.  The deceased resided at Mansfield, Ohio, nineteen years, and during that time was elected and served two terms as Treasurer of Richland county, and was also engaged in the banking business with the Shermans and others under the firm name of Conn, Silverman & Co. In 1856 he moved to Van Wert, where he resided ever since, and while here was, for a time, engaged in the dry goods and grocery trade, and was elected and served as County Treasurer. When the war broke out he took an active part as a committeeman in forwarding  soldiers, and in assisting their dependent families while they were absent.  In the winter of 1827, Mr. Conn experienced religion and united with the Presbyterian Church, in which he has ever since remained as a consistent and devoted worshipper.  For many years Mr. Conn was a ruling Elder in the Presbyterian Church and always was, during that time, unanimously honored by the members of the church he was connected with, by being selected as their delegate to the District or general Synod. Every religious duty he was called upon to perform, he did with correctness, zeal and fearlessly. At the beginning of the war he was, as a delegate, attending a meeting of the Synod at Philadelphia, when the Church building in which it was held was mobbed, yet during those rough times, he remained fearlessly at his post until order was resumed.  In all his commercial dealings with others, the deceased has their attestations to his strict fairness and honesty. As an official in the public service, he did his duty, and those who cast their ballots for him, as well as others who did not, have at all times been free t o say that they never knew an official more efficient or upright in the discharge of duty. As a citizen, he was public spirited; as a neighbor, accommodating, and as a friend devoted. With his family he was a husband and father, who was loving, devoted and provident. There are left to mourn their loss, his aged wife, three sons living here, two sisters residing at Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, and one brother, Mr. Robert Conn, of this place, besides a large number of other near relatives.  Mr. Conn’s funeral took place on Thursday afternoon at 6 p.m., Rev. A.C. Stockton of the First Presbyterian Church officiating. An unusually large number of people were in attendance and followed the remains from the residence to their last earthly resting place. Peace to his ashes.  Submitted by P.M.  [Transcribed from a newspaper clipping in scrapbook compiled by Thomas B. Andrews of Butler, Ohio.. Obituary probably from a Van Wert newspaper since John A.

Cook, Jabez -- bur. 2/6/1875 at Mansfield Cem.;  82y, 6m, 28d  [Richland Shield & Banner:  15 January 1876]

Cook, Jabez -- Another of our old and highly respected citizens, Jabez Cook, has passed from among us, and his familiar face will be no longer greeted by his many friends upon our streets.  For the last year, he had been evidently failing, from loss of appetite, which in a measure he had recovered, until three or four weeks since, when it again failed, his system rapidly running down, and on Saturday night, the 6th. of February, 1875, peacefully breathed his last at his residence on south Main street, aged 82 years, 6 months and 26 days.  His remains were attended to their last resting place, at 2 o'clock, on Monday, by a large number of relatives and friends.  Mr. Cook was born in Washington County, Pa., July 11, 1792;  and spent the summer of 1814 in the vicinity of Mansfield, his father, Noah Cook, having entered eleven quarter sections of land in this county a year or two prior, one of which he gave to Jabez Cook and to each of his sons and daughters a quarter or half quarter.  Amos Cook got the quarter section adjoining the deceased, known afterwards as the John Kennedy farm.  After spending the summer near Lexington, he returned to it Amity, Washington County, Pa., where he taught school during the winter, and on the 2d. of March 1815, married Miss Hannah Pierson, of that county, after which, he and his cousin Daniel Cook, came out to Richland and each put up a log cabin on their lands which adjoined -- Daniel Cook's adjoining on the South.  After erecting their cabins and clearing a patch of ground for corn and potatoes, the latter part of June they returned to Pennsylvania to harvest, and in September of the same year, moved out to their farms near Mansfield -- Jabez Cook and wife, Daniel Cook and Wm. Cook and their wives;  the deceased's father and family having emigrated to this county the year previous, and settling on land adjoining Lexington, on which farm Thomas Cook now resides.  It took stout hearts and strong arms, then, to go into an unusually heavy timbered forest and carve out a farm, but Jabez Cook and his frugal young wife were euqal to the emergency, and in the course of the forty years they resided upon this land they had a model farm, scarcely equaled in the county for fertility, production, convenience and beauty.  In 1855 Mr. and Mrs. Cook removed to Mansfield, having purchased a residence on south Main street, and in March, 1872, Mrs. Cook died, aged 77 she having been a member of the Presbyterian church for half a century.  Mr. Cook continued to reside there until his decease.  He was much interested in the benevolent objects of the day, and contributed liberally in all calls of this nature.  Although modest and unobtrusive, he was always among the foremost in furthering projects for the advancement of town and country.  He was among the originators of the Sandusky, New Haven and Mansfield Railroad, subsequently the Sandusky, Mansfield and Newark Railroad.  There are seven children who survive the deceased -- three sons and four daughters, J.H. Cook, of this city and Dr. T.M. Cook, twin brothers, the latter residing in Toledo;  Mortimor Cook, now residing in Santa Barbara, California.  The elder daughter, Mrs. Anderson, living in this city;  the second daughter, Mrs. Vorhies, residing in Mt. Gilead (OH), the third, Elizabeth Shepard, residing in Iowa City, who arrived here since the funeral of her father, the fourth, Lydia Jane Harrison, residing in San Francisco, California.  He was a devoted husband and father, as was the children to their parents, and he leaves to them and community the memory of a pure life and a public benefactor.  He had fulfilled his mission at a ripe old age and has gone to his fathers.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  13 February 1875]

Cook, James Hervey -- James Hervey Cook, an honored and upright citizen of Mansfield, whose entire life has been spent in Madison Township, died Thursday night at 9 o'clock at his home, No. 105 West Third Street.  He was born on a farm 2˝ miles south of this city, Sept. 3, 1816;  was a son of Jabez and Hannah Cook, and a twin brother of Dr. Thomas McCurdy Cook, who died at his home at Sandusky, March 14, 1896.  Mr. Cook was married March 27, 1842, to Miss Mary A. Wiler, who, with three daughters and a son, survive him.  The daughters are Mrs. George W. Blymyer, who is now in New Jersey;  Mrs. Laura C. Bunker, of this city, and Mrs. Clada Sturges, of Dayton, and the son is James M. Cook, of this city.  Mr. Cook took to his bed Nov. 23, having had a slight stroke of paralysis the day before.  He was conscious up until his death.  He has been identified with Mansfield's interests for many years.  His elementary education was secured at the Sandy Hill school house, after which he continued his studies at Granville.  He worked on the farm and also taught school for several winters.  In the winter of 1840-41, he came to this city and has lived here continuously since that time.  He taught school at the corner of Fourth and Mulberry Streets in a little red school house.  In the spring of 1849, Mr. Cook took possession of the Wiler House and was engaged in the hotel business there continuously for 10 years.  He then sold, but later was again proprietor of the Wiler House from 1864 to 1869.  He was one of the first conductors on the Sandusky, Mansfield and Newark railroad, after that road was constructed.  Mr. Cook has been an officer of the Richland Mutual Insurance company for about 30 years, being for many years its president.  He has also been president of the cemetery association for nearly that long.  Besides four children, Mr. Cook leaves seven grandchildren.  Funeral arrangements have not, as yet, been made.  [Semi-Weekly News:  03 December 1897, Vol. 13, No. 97]  << photo >>

Cook, James Hervey -- Lexington.  J.H. Cook, Esq., who died recently in Mansfield, once informed the writer that he roamed over the site of Lexington when the smoke of but a few cabins curled through the dense foliage of the primitive forest here.  He was a nephew of Col. Thomas Cook, father of Mrs. S.N. Ford, and who came here in 1814 and died here in May, 1888.  The athletic young pioneers of this region were inspired with the martial spirit of those heroic days.  Thomas Cook was a captain and Isaac Gass, who later became famous as a soldier and in the forensic arena, was first lieutenant of a company that was famous here over 60 years ago.  J.H. Cook was the fifer and Dr. T.M. Cook, this twin brother, was drummer of the company and the thrilling martial strains caused the fire of parasitism to glow fervently in the hearts of the pioneers and they came from far and near to see the evolutions of the militia.  George Miller, Esq., of Lexington, has mingled sad and happy memories of those exuberant days long lost in the dust of time.  He and J.H. Cook were congenial spirits from boyhood and he deplores his death and pays a fine tribute to his noble attributes.  [Semi-Weekly News:  14 December 1897, Vol. 13, No. 100]

Coulter, S.L. -- "Maj. S.L. Coulter, after a long and suffering illness;  died at his home on East Forest Avenue at 3 o'clock last Friday afternoon, from a complication of diseases, aged 57 years.  Maj. Coulter's decline in health dates back several years ago, when his wife, a most worthy woman, sickened and died.  He seemed to grieve over her death almost up to the very hour of his own demise.  Few persons were more attached and their devotion to each other was often the subject of conversation among friends and acquaintances.  The deceased was one of the early settlers of this section of the state, locating in Neosho County some twenty years ago, but shortly afterward took up his home in this county and was one of the first residents of this city.  Major Coulter was an exemplary citizen and scholarly gentleman and during his life held several places and honor and trust, having for eight years filled the office of Probate Judge of the county with signal ability.  During the war for the preservation of the union, the deceased served his country well and faithfully throughout the struggle, and, for meritorious services on the battlefield, justly won the title of major.  The death of Major Coulter has been looked for some time, yet the announcement of his death will be read with deep regret by friends and acquaintances all over Labette County.  He leaves one son about 14 years of age.  The funeral services took place from the family residence, corner Forest Avenue and 16th. Street, at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon."  Major Coulter was well known in this county.  He was a brother of James Coulter, who lives south of the city, and a cousin of R.M. Coulter, who resides west of the city.  He studied law with M.E. Douglas under L.B. Matson, and during the war he enlisted in Co. E of the 64th. regiment and was noted for his bravery, which promoted him to the rank of Major.  After the close of the war he moved to Kansas, where he has since resided.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 June 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 3 a portion having been reprinted from the Parsons (Kas.)

Coulthard, Mrs. David (nee McMullen) -- In the midst of life we are in death -- During the past few days death has visited several households in our midst, and happy homes have been transformed into scenes of mourning.  To the bereaved survivors of the dead we can offer but the poor ___ of sympathy and condolence.  A few says ago our fellow citizens consigned all that was of earth of that estimable lady, the wife of our esteemed fellow citizens Hon. N.M.D. McMullen to the tomb;  and while those last sad rites were being performance, that inexorable messenger claimed for his next victim, the daughter of the deceased.  -- Mrs. David Coulthard -- who departed this life on Saturday last.  Tho death of the last named lady, carries with it a forcible and suggestive lesson -- reminding us of the slender thread by which we are bound to this world.  First, we have the aged mother taken from her family in the hour when she was most needed;  then within a few short days her daughter, who but a few months ago, was led to the altar a blooming bride, enjoying all the pleasures of the  bright anticipations of a happy future, is called away;  leaving husband and family and friends to mourn her loss.  But mother and daughter leave an unusually large circle of friends, to mourn their death and Messrs. McMullen and Coulthard have the heartfelt sympathy of their fellow citizen in their sorrow and affliction.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  25 December 1867, Vol. XXVII, No. 31 as reprinted from the Shakopee (MN) paper]

Cowan, Drusilla (Huston) -- DIED -- In Bellville, Ohio, February 11th., 1873, Mrs. DRUSILLA COWAN, aged 66 years, 4 months and 5 days.  -- [BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY: 14 February 1873, Vol. 1, No. 51]  In a subsequent issue of the same paper, dated 21 February 1873 (Vol. 1, No. 52), a more thorough obituary was published ...  In the southern part of the State of Pennsylvania on a picturesque and fertile farm DRUSILLA HUSTON was born on the 3rd. day of October, 1836. She was the youngest of seven children who made glad the hearts and home of her parents -- Andrew and Ellenor Huston. Was married to Hugh Cowan on the 14th. of May, 1829, and in 1834 they came to Bellville, Ohio, where by patient and self-sacrificing industry they bought a home, where she has since lived through the many changes of life till her earthly course was ended.   Mrs. Cowan was a wonder to my childhood, and is not less a wonder to me as I recall her now. How she did so much work, and yet did it well; how she reared carefully and governed wisely so large a family of children, and yet found time to develop by thought and reading her mind is a mystery to me. She was fond of reading, but discarded fictitious literature.  About twenty years ago she determined to live a Christian life, and since that time has sustained a Christian character, which was truly an honor to the cause of Christ. The highest eulogy that can be pronounced upon mortals can we think with strict propriety be pronounced upon her "Be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life". Life was to her no holiday; and though her skies had gracious hours of sunshine, they had also many dark and heavy clouds, but behind the clouds there was ever a silver lining. Her last brief sickness was such that she could talk but little, but she told her daughter at her side, "she was not afraid to die". Again she said "be a good girl and meet me in heaven". "I want you all to meet me in Heaven".   The Father has lost an affectionate companion, and the children their best earthly friend. The charm of her Christian life, her kind and considerate care, her noble and generous qualities can avail no more; but they have the bright example she left behind for them to follow; and the hope that by patient continuance in well doing, they wish her may walk the golden streets of the New Jerusalem. She did her duty with modest stillness and humility; therefore we need not say that she was truly loved, nor that her absence is deeply mourned. -- L.

Cowan, Milo -- Milo Cowan, cashier of the Citizens' National Bank of this city, died suddenly at his home about midnight Monday, June 5, 1906, aged 65 years.  The primary cause of Mr. Cowan's death was probably Bright's disease.  This effected the stomach and later on, the heart became involved and the immediate cause of his death was probably due to heart failure.  His health failed nearly a year ago, but he continued at his post at the bank until this spring when he went to Hot Springs, Ark., remaining there about a month.  When he returned there was no sign of substantial improvement in his condition, yet he took up the work in the bank again and remained at his post until last Friday.  He went home that day a very sick man and this was the last time he was downtown.  Deceased entered the employment of the bank in 1874, and except five years he was out west, he had had been a trusted clerk and officer of that institution ever since.  He was a careful, prudent business man, a good accountant and a safe counselor.  His advice was sought by many of our citizens on important matters, and no harm ever came to anyone who followed his advice.  He was honest and faithful to every duty imposed, and fitted by education and training for positions of great honor and trust.  Knowing this the people had the utmost confidence in him and trusted him as they would a brother.  During the Civil War he served in the Union army and at its close he came from Ohio west locating first in Clark County, this state.  A year or two later and still in the "sixties" as we now remember, he came to Memphis, where except the five years above referred to, he resided until the close of life.  During all these years he held positions of trust and honor in the community and serves his employers with fidelity and credit.  He will be missed in the bank and in the town and county by many true and steadfast friends, because he was true as steel -- every inch a man.  He leaves as members of his immediate family, a wife, daughter, Louise, and two sons, Horace, of Sioux Rapids, Iowa, and Hugh, of Arizona.  Both of the sons have been reached by wire and will arrive later in the week.  As soon as they arrive arrangements for the funeral will be made and the time announced.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  22 June 1906, Vol. 14, No. 21 reprinted from the Memphis (Mo.) Reveille, June 7]

Cowlick, James -- John Cowlick, the mail wagon driver whose father died suddenly of heart disease yesterday morning, left for his home at Clinton, Mo., with the remains last night.  Yesterday afternoon Cowlick telegraphed J.P. Stewart, the mail contractor, asking him for a sufficient amount of money to bear the expenses of taking his father home, but received no answer.  The young man, being without money, was in a serious predicament when Postmaster Ozier and Assistant Postmaster Martin came to his relief and purchased the two tickets for Clinton, Mo., at a cost of $40, and gave the young man $4 for expenses.  Young Cowlick highly appreciated the substantial manner in which Messrs. Ozier and Martin showed their sympathy and promised to return the money as soon as possible.  As he does not intend to return here, the young man gave Undertaker Niman a horse as payment for the coffin and other undertaking expenses.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  06 August 1892] *An article about Mr. Cowlick's death can be found elsewhere in the same paper.
