Cracraft, Joseph -- The death of Joseph Cracraft, who for many years resided but a few miles west of this city, will be received with sorrow by his many friends.  the facts of his death are as follows:  On Thursday, April 10, Mr. Cracraft started for his farm on a young, powerful horse, and about an hour after his nephew, Abner, whom he caught up with and passed about nine miles out, discovered him lying in the road unconscious, with his skull cracked;  his horse grazing near by.  The theory is that he had fallen asleep, as was his habit when riding, and that his horse shying suddenly, he was thrown violently to the ground.  He was taken to his home in Hiawatha, Friday, and remained unconscious until death ensued on Sunday.  He was buried the following Tuesday.  Mr. Cracraft removed to Kansas in 1869, where he has since lived, and where he was for some time a representative.  His death is untimely and mourned by all.  He leaves a wife and three children to mourn his loss.  [Ohio Liberal:  30 April 1879]

Crall, James S. -- The friends and acquaintances of Col. Crall who met him upon the street during the day on last Wednesday little thought that his death would occur in a few short hours.  Although it was generally known that he had been afflicted with heart disease for some years, and it  was supposed that his demise would be sudden, yet, when at 10 o'clock Wednesday night his death occurred, the sad news was a painful surprise to many of his friends.  The deceased was the youngest son of William and Mary Crall, pioneer residents of Richland county, and was nearly 48 years of age, having lived in this city from his infancy.  During his boyhood days he attended the public schools in this city, and later took a collegiate course at Miami University, after which he returned to this city and was appointed Deputy Clerk of the Common Pleas Court.  At the beginning of the war he enlisted in the 82d. O.V.I., then being recruited by Col. James Cantwell, and was appointed a Second Lieutenant to recruit a company.  Upon the organization of the regiment he was appointed to the Captaincy of the company, and upon the death of Col. Cantwell, at the second battle of Bull Run, he was promoted to Major of the regiment, and after serving through the war he was mustered out at its close as Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment.  At the close of the war Col. Crall returned to this city where he held a number of offices of trust, serving as member and President of the City Council, Justice of the Peace two terms, and Deputy Clerk of Common Pleas Court.  He was active in politics and served in a number of capacities in his party's organizations with credit.  The funeral of the deceased took place from his late residence, 108 N. East Diamond street, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock and was one of the most largely attended which has ever been held in this city.  He was a faithful and honored member of the F.& A.M., G.A.R. and K.P. and these associations turned out in a body to the funeral, which was conducted in accordance with their burial rites, each of the associations taking part in the funeral services.  [Ohio Liberal:  09 April 1884]

Crall, Joshua -- Our community was startled last Thursday morning to learn that Joshua Crall, a highly respectable farmer living four miles north on the State road, had committed suicide.  The circumstances surrounding this sad tragedy are as follows:  Mr. Crall during the past year or so had become quite despondent, and his actions so excited the fears of his children that whenever he was absent any length of time they became uneasy, and immediately went in search of him.  On Thursday morning, as his custom was, he arose very early, about three o'clock in the morning, and went to the barn to do the feeding and chores.  About six o'clock his eldest son, Samuel, went to the barn to look for his father.  On entering a ghastly sight met his vision, there in cold death lay his father with a butcher knife still sticking in his heart.  The son pulled out the knife and gave the alarm.  Soon quite a number of the farmers had gathered, but they found he had only two well done the deed.  The grindstone was still wet, showing that the deceased had deliberately sharpened the knife, and then gone to the barn, about one hundred feet from the house, and plunged it into his own heart.  A great many motives are assigned for the rash act.  Mostly that of insanity, but from close inquiry and the subsequent testimony taken before the coroner it seems such was not the case.  yet there is no doubt but that at times, Mr. Crall became very much discouraged, and perhaps out of his rational mind, and in one of these fits he took his life.  He was a man 62 years of age, and had been a widower for sixteen years.  He leaves two daughters and two sons to mourn his sad demise.  Mr. Crall was a man of exemplary habits, strictly honest, a man respected and held in esteem by all, and the universal feeling among his neighbors seemed to be one of sympathy and deep regret.  His funeral took place Saturday at 10 o'clock.  Thursday afternoon Coroner Erwin went out and held a post mortem examination.  He found only one wound inflicted, which went clear through the left ventricle of the heart, and on through the left lobe of the liver quite near to the stomach.  On examination of the brain revealed the fact that the membranes over the cerebellum was more or less diseased, producing a chronic mental disarrangement.  Since the occurrence Dr. Erwin has been taking testimony and examining different persons in that neighborhood.  The following persons have been examined:  James Case, Sam. Crall, Samuel Bell, Susie Crall, John F. Lewis, John Warrell and Chas. Leyman.  It was learned that Mr. Crall's pocketbook was found containing $1,250 in money and $900 in notes, &c.  To a casual observer this may seem a case of suicide, but a close examination shows there is considerable of a mystery connected with the case.  The testimony showed that there were no indications of a struggle about where the man was found.  His stomach was found empty, as though he had committed;  the wound bled only a very little.  Such a thing might be possible that the dead man was never killed when he was found and in the way it looks, but rather that he might have been placed in the position found.  These, of course, are only suspicions, but the facts surrounding the case cannot prevent us drawing this conclusion.  The investigation will still be further prosecuted this week.  [Ohio Liberal:  16 April 1879]

Cresswell, W.C. -- Shelby.  W.C. Cresswell, living on Raymond Avenue, died last night of heart trouble, aged 67 years.  Mr. Cresswell had an interesting career having in his younger days been a sailor on the ocean, which employment allowed him to set foot on every seaboard in the world with the exception of that of Sweden.  He was born in Bury Street, Edmunds, England, in 1832, and at the age of 16 made his first trip on the sea, shipping on the brig "Kello" to Archangel, Russia.  From this time up to 1854 he continued in the service of English, Prussian, German and United States merchant vessels.  In 1854 he went to the United States navy on the frigate "Potomac" under Commodore Paulding, whose duty it was to patrol the Atlantic coast.  At one time while on this vessel it was stationed at Havana.  The Spanish authorities seized a United States mail ship and Commodore Paulding gave them 24 hours to release it or have the city blown to pieces, the guns being double-shotted for that purpose.  During the Spanish war Mr. Cresswell was an enthusiastic reader of all war news and he often told the reporters what a regret it was that there were not some Commodore Pauldings in Havana at the time of the Maine affair.  In 1856 the Potomac went out of commission and the crew was transferred to the "Wabash".  During his service on this vessel the most exciting experience was the capturing of the filibusterer, General Walker, at Graytown, Nicaragua.  Their vessel was sunk and the entire crew of the filibusterer, 500 in number, was brought back on the Wabash.  As the Wabash carried a crew of 582 men, the crowded condition of the ship may well be imagined.  He then took service on the United States vessel Plymouth, and after serving his term of enlistment on this vessel went into the merchant marine again.  This time he traveled pretty much all over the world again, and finally settled down at Batavia, in the island of Java.  Here he took a position under the government of Holland as captain in a patrol boat between Java and Sumatra at $190 per month in gold.  It was his duty to carry government orders and look after vessels in distress after a storm.  It was while engaged there that an English ship passed one day carrying one of his acquaintances.  This man told him of the rebellion in the United States and he immediately came back to this country to take part.  He arrived in New York on Sept. 4, 1862, and on the 8th. was a soldier in the 1st. New York mounted rifles.  He went into service and at Winslow, Va., only a few months after enlistment, was wounded in the leg and taken prisoner.  His leg was amputated and after lying in a rebel prison several months was exchanged and brought north.  He remained in Philadelphia until 20 years ago, when he moved to Sharon Township, settling near Vernon Junction.  He moved to Shelby about two years ago and resided on Raymond Avenue.  His career up to the time of the civil war was one long list of exciting experiences, and had misfortune not befallen him, he would probably have continued it for many years longer.  All during the Spanish War he was an ardent enthusiast in the cause of the United States and could nearly always be found at his home with a newspaper of the latest issue and a map of the country where operations were being carried on.  He said he would be with the boys if he was only young and able again.  Mr. Cresswell was 13 times shipwrecked and told many tales of the hardships and privations suffered by those who "went down to the sea" before steam revolutionized commerce and warfare.  Funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at the residence at 4 o'clock by the Rev. J.J. Dimon.  He leaves a wife and one daughter.  [Mansfield News:  02 August 1899]

Sonnanstine of this place.  This death has not only stricken his parent's hearts, but a widow and an interesting family of three children feel the loss.  The respect and esteem which the community had for him, and their sympathy for the large circle of bereaved, was shown by the large attendance at the funeral service, conducted by Rev. Anderson at the Shenandoah Church.  He sleeps at the adjoining cemetery, awaiting the general resurrection.  This is another call to those in the busy activities of life, "Be ye also ready".  [Shelby Independent News:  05 October 1876, Vol. 8, No. 50]

Smead, of Savannah.  She was interred on the sacred day of Easter.  <<>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  07 May 1892]

Cross, Mrs. George -- Within the last twelve hours ugly rumors have been flying about concerning the death of Mrs. George Cross, who resided on East Third Street, near the railroad, and who died this forenoon.  These rumors reaching the ears of Prosecutor H.E. Bell, he promptly made an investigation of the matter, which resulted in his ordering Dr. Reed to hold a post mortem on the body of the deceased for corroborative evidence if possible.  Mrs. Cross has been suffering for some time with syphilis and has been expected to die almost any day for the past week, but the rumor which is current is that she did not died of the disease above mentioned, but that death resulted from poison administered by her husband, who has outlived three wives beside the last.  A SHIELD man called on Mr. Cross this afternoon.  He was very mad and threatened to shoot any person who came around his house to hold a post mortem.  He accused Dr. Baughman, who was the attending physician, of starting the story of the poisoning, which he vigorously denied any knowledge of.  Cross also said that the woman was a sporting woman before he married her.  He declared he would bury the remains late this afternoon.  The officers, however, will not permit any such haste and will interfere until the mystery concerning the death is fully investigated.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  30 May 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 2]  *A lengthy article regarding the post mortem examination findings in the 06 June 1891 issue of the Richland Shield & Banner.

Crouse, Theodore -- Bellville.  Thursday afternoon, the 10th. inst., Theodore Crouse came to this place from the south, in an intoxicated condition, for the purpose, no doubt, of finishing his drunken spree, and was successful.  On the train he was very abusive and troublesome, and the conductor was glad to get rid of him.  After landing here he imbibed more liquor, and was seen reeling along the streets at a late hour in the night.  He applied for lodging but was refused, and after his concert in the lumber yard, nothing more was heard of him until Saturday morning, when he was found lying by the railroad track near Alexander & Zent's warehouse, with his head crushed and life almost extinct.  The news was communicated to the landlord of the Clifton House by a train hand on a south bound freight, about four o'clock.  The generally accepted theory is that the man lay down by the track in a drunken stupor, with his head against the rail, and was not awakened by the noise of the train, until too late to escape.  His body was removed to the platform at the depot.  After the railroad company refused to take charge of the body, it was taken to Lanehart's furniture store, and prepared for burial.  Telegrams were sent out inquiring for friends of the dead man, and an answer came from Tiffin Saturday afternoon, just before the remains were buried.  A brother of the deceased came on the night train and left with the remains on Sunday afternoon.  The deceased was a stone cutter by trade, and worked here last season.  On his person was found nothing but $1.25 in money.  He was some thirty years old and unmarried.  His father is a German Lutheran minister now preaching at Tiffin.  He formerly preached in this county.  --  [Bellville Star:  17 July 1884, Vol. 7, No. 42]

Crum, Lorenzo D. -- Lorenzo D. Crum, son of G.W. & Catharine Crum, was born in Butler Township, Richland County, O., March 26th., 1852, and departed this life Oct. 31st., 1914, aged 62 years, 6 months and 5 days.  He leaves to mourn his death, his devoted wife, aged mother, one brother, a sister and many other relatives and a host of friends.  When a child, he with his parents moved to Williams County, O., then to Michigan, returning to Richland County when he was a young man.  He was married April 2nd., 1873, to Mary A. Tomlinson.  To this union, in 1875, was born a daughter, who died in infancy.  Mr. and Mrs. Crum have spent their entire married life, except a year and a half in Findlay, in this community.  For a number of years he was a teacher in the public schools.  Forty years ago he and his wife were converted at Delphi in special meetings conducted by Rev. C.C. Ball.  After some time they united with the Church of God at Bloominggrove Bethel.  Later their membership was transferred to the New Haven church, it being nearer their home.  On their removal to Findlay in 1907 they united with the College church of that city.  Mr. Crum has always been identified with the religious life of this community, a faithful helper in all Christian work.  The Sunday School was dear to his heart, and several Sunday Schools were organized by him and he was for about twelve years the able and efficient president of the Ripley Township S.S. Association.  After his conversion he was always a teacher or superintendent, holding this office in Delphi at the time of his death.  He loved children and they in turn dearly loved him.  Although a sufferer for 10 months, he was patient, cheerful and hopeful.  He peacefully fell asleep as the sunset's glow faded in the west to awaken in that beautiful home where shadows never come.  He will be missed as an example of the highest type of citizenship, as a counselor and friend, but nowhere will he be missed as in his home, where love reigned supreme.  He believed in the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of man.  His greatest desire was to help others to a higher, better life.  He leaves as a monument to his memory a living testimony to the power of God and the faith and hope that the Father implants in the hearts of his children.  <<scripture omitted>> The funeral sermon was preached by Dr. Chas. T. Fox, of Findlay, O.  Rev. E.S. Tompkins of Norwalk, Rev. Neff of New Haven, and Rev. Hughes of North Fairfield, were present and took part in the services.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  14 November 1914, Vol. 61, No. 52]
