Dobbs, Harvey J. -- Harvey J. Dobbs, the well-known drayman, dropped dead at 7:30 o'clock this morning in the driveway of the City Mills, on North Main Street.  Mr. Dobbs was talking to H. Whipp, who was seated in his buggy.  They had been in conversation for some time, when suddenly Mr. Whipp heard a grown and saw Mr. Dobbs fall between the wheels of the buggy.  He called to several employees of the mill, who carried him inside and sent for Dr. Ecki.  The doctor, after making an examination, said the cause of death was heart disease.  The remains were immediately taken to the deceased's home, on Vennum Avenue, by Undertaker Niman.  Harvey J. Dobbs was born in July, 1850.  Consequently he was forty-three years old at the time of his death.  He was the son of Thomas R. Dobbs and wife, who survive him.  He leaves four sisters and three brothers, all of whom are living.  The deceased was a member of the First English Lutheran Church and for a number of years was a member of the church choir.  Mr. Dobbs' many friends were shocked at the announcement of his death this morning, as he had always been an exceedingly strong and healthy man.  No time has yet been fixed for the funeral, as the relatives are waiting to hear from a brother in Nebraska and one at Toledo.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  21 October 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 22]

Donnan, Andrew -- DIED -- Near Mansfield, Sept. 23d., Andrew Donnan, aged 75 years. Andrew Donnan was born in Scotland in the Shire of Galoway, May 4, 1809, and died near Mansfield, Richland County, Ohio, September 23, 1884. He was the son of David and Margaret Donnan who emigrated to America with their family of four sons and one daughter when Andrew was five years old. He always retained a vivid recollection of crossing the ocean. The family settled first in Belmont County, Ohio, where they remained three years, then purchased the farm in Richland County five miles from what is now the city of Mansfield. There the father and mother spent the rest of their lives, and from that place they were carried to their last long home. Upon becoming settled they united with the Seceder's Church of Mansfield, of which Rev. Mr. Hineman was pastor for many years, he was Elder to the end of life. Whether they brought letters from Scotland is not known, but it is probable that they did. Mrs. Margaret Donnan was a woman of earnest, decisive character, never afraid to speak what she deemed the truth on any subject. When her husband was removed by death, her voice had never been heard in prayer, yet from that time on through life she kept up family worship and asked a blessing at the table. Andrew, the subject of this sketch, remembered but little of his early childhood in the "Mither country", but it was evident that the "gude" woman's impress was upon the son. From her he inherited those peculiar traits of character that made him wherever he was the respected neighbor, kind and true friend and loyal citizen. He was a lover of children, and many of that class who know will long remember with pleasure his occasional visits to their homes. In 1835 Andrew went to Mt. Gilead to live, where he worked twelve or fifteen years at his trade as tanner. January 1, 1837, he united in marriage with Miss Joanna Potter at the residence of Mrs. Emeline Hicks, the bride's sister. From Gilead he went to Lincoln Twp., and from there to Bennington, near the Friend's Church, spending a few years only in each place. In 1866 he moved with his family to Morton's Corners where during the following winter he was converted under the ministry of Rev. G.W. Bainum of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. Upon removing to Richland County in 1875 he and his wife joined by letter with the United Presbyterian Church of Mansfield, of which he was a worthy member at the time of his death. During his last illness he was a sufferer, but no word of mourning escaped his lips. As long as he was able he preferred to wait upon himself, but so rapid was the inroad of dread disease that his naturally strong constitution soon gave way, and the hands that were hard and stiffened with toil became powerless to move. Numerous friends and neighbors visited him and were ever ready to assist in ministering to his needs. Able physicians were in attendance, but no power was found to grapple with the king of terrors and rescue the victim from this relentless grasp. His testimony amid his sufferings, while yet his intellect was undimed was "if it is the Lord's will to take me now, I am ready. I know that my Redeemer liveth." The funeral services were at the house, conducted by Rev. Mr. Anderson, assisted by the Presbyterian minister. Mr. Donnan's four sons were present at the funeral and carried the remains of their honored father to the hearse, and at the cemetery from the hearse to his final resting place. The wife of his youth survives to walk a lonely pathway a few days, for it cannot be long until another summons will come, and those separate for a little season will be reunited to pass an unbroken eternity in praise to Him who has washed them and made them white in His own precious blood. -- [MANSFIELD HERALD: 09 October 1884, Vol. 34, No. 47]

Donnan, Jennie Ferguson -- Dies At 96 - Mrs. Jennie Ferguson Donnan, 96, daughter of Richland county pioneers, died Saturday at Massillon. Mrs. Donnan was born May 6, 1853, near Mansfield. She was the daughter of James and Nancy Ferguson, who came to Richland county in 1852. Mrs. Donnan moved to Mansfield in 1898 and lived here until she left in 1945 to make her home in Massillon. She is the widow of Rev. J. W. Donnan. Mrs. Donnan was a member of the Presbyterian church and of the Women's Christian Temperance Union. Survivors include one brother, T.B. Ferguson of near Mansfield; several nieces and nephews; and three step-children. The body was removed to the Wappner funeral home where funeral arrangements are incomplete.

Douglass, Augustus Allen -- A Well Known Citizen and Lawyer Passes From Earth. Augustus Allen Douglass was born in Monroe township, Richland county, Ohio, Oct. 30, 1850. He died at his home in Mansfield, Wednesday, Aug. (, 1911. These words express the beginning and the end of a brief and notable career. Mr. Douglass was the eldest son and eldest child of John J. Douglass and Sophia (Shrack) Douglass. His father and mother were prominent in the early history of that township, and the early life of the deceased was one of rugged hardships, incident to and industrious boyhood of farm toil. He early forged forward in the activities of the district school and later acquired an academic education in Greentown Academy under the tutorship of Prof. Sample, and his acquirements were such that at the early age of seventeen, he distinguished himself as a teacher in the common schools. His persevering leadership, his indomitable courage, his tireless industry and his splendid scholarship, forced him into recognition, so that in 1880, he was elected a school examiner of this county, serving with great distinction, and in 1882 he was by the state examiners, awarded a teacher's life certificate. Mr. Douglass, in close succession, was superintendent of the schools of Shiloh and Bellville, so that by his activities and his close touch with public affairs, he acquired an extensive and meritorious acquaintance throughout Richland and surrounding counties. In 1885, he was admitted to the practice of law, and almost immediately in 1890 was elected prosecuting attorney of Richland county and in 1893 was re-elected by an increased and almost phenomenal majority, serving in all, a period of six years. His official life in that department was wholly in keeping with the brilliancy of his career in every step of life, whether in the school room or at the forum: whether his energies and abilities were tasked for the punishment of crime, or in the defense of the innocent; whether the civil warfare was in the criminal courts or the civil; whether to the jury or the judge, it was always waged with unabating energy, with distinguished ability and fidelity to the end. Mr. Douglass was a Mason, an Odd Fellow, a K. of P., a K. G. E., and a member of the National Union. In his church affiliation, he was a follower of Martin Luther. In 1895 he was married to Miss Ida Thompson, of which union two children were born, Dong Hughes and Ida Corrinne, all of whom survive him, except the dear boy, Don Hughes, who was laid to rest Nov. 12, 1901. Mr. Douglass is also survived by his brother, Judge S. M. Douglass, of this city, and his sister, Elizabeth Hazlett, of Ashland, besides a host of relatives and a myriad of friends. His love and fidelity to a devoted wife and their children was a predominating trait of his character and a tribute to his memory. With the passing of Mr. Douglass, the community has lost a worthy member and the bar of Ohio a leader who is without a peer. The funeral services will be held at the family residence in this city, Friday, August 11, at 3:30 p. m. Submitted by Jean and Faye. (The Mansfield News, Wednesday, August 9, 1911)

Douglass, well known all over the county, died at the family residence on Marion Avenue about 9:30 last night.  The deceased had been for some time the victim of ills attending old age, but was supposed to be recovering and felt much better than usual yesterday.  In the evening, however, she was attacked with heart failure and rapidly grew worse, expiring at the hour above named.  Mrs. Douglass, nee Schrack, was born in Monroe Township, this county, a little over 63 years ago.  In 1850 she was married to Mr. Douglass.  She was the mother of four children, three of whom, Prosecuting Attorney A.A. Douglass and Ex-City Solicitor S.M. Douglass, of this city, and Mrs. Elizabeth Hazlett, of Independence, with their father, survive her.  For many years she was a member of the Christian church, but nine years ago attached herself to the Baptist church of this city, which she has ever since remained a faithful adherent.  The funeral services will be held at the residence at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. H.A. Sumrell officiating, assisted by Dr. H.L. Wiles.  Interment in the Mansfield Cemetery.  The relatives and friends of the deceased have the sympathy of the entire community.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  23 January 1892]

Douglass, Sophia (Schrack) -- Sophia (Schrack) Douglass was born in Monroe Township, Richland County, Ohio, November 26th., A.D. 1828;  she died at her home, 38 Marion Avenue, in the city of Mansfield on January 14th., 1892, at 9:30 p.m.  She was married to John J. Douglass, January 1st., A.D. 1850, at Mansfield by Rev. James Johnson at his residence, situated on the site now occupied by the Web Factory on Park Avenue East.  She was the mother of of four children, namely:  A.A. Douglass, S.M. Douglass, -ary E. Hazlett and Olive Douglass, the three former surviving her, the latter having died in infancy.  In the spring following her marriage, she, with her husband, located on a farm of 80 acres in Monroe township, only 35 acres of which was then cleared.  She endured many of the hardships and deprivations of pioneer life;  by her frugality and earnest toil she aided her husband in not only making fit for the plow every acre of their early home, but helped to add more thereto.  On the 19th. day of April, 1883, she, with her husband, left their country home, the fruit of their years of labor, and moved to this city, to the place where she resided at the time of her death.  A most peculiar coincidence connected with her decease was the fact that two of her sisters died within a few days of her death, viz.:  Mrs. Anna McDanel of Columbia City, Ind., aged 51 years, being one and Mary Jefferies of Sevastopol, Ind., aged 73 years, being the other.  Mrs. Douglass was the seventh daughter of a family of twelve children of David and Elizabeth Schrack, who emigrated to this country at a very early day.  Mrs. Douglass was a pure and exemplary Christian woman.  She raised her children in the belief of the Savior, never missing an opportunity to impress upon them the necessity of an upright life;  for a number of years she was a member of the Disciple church, but in 1883 she united with the Baptist church of this city.  This was her chosen church and of which she was a devoted sincere and loyal member.  Her enthusiasm for the principles of her church, her unalloyed belief in the Savior of mankind could not be questioned.  As a mother it is enough to say that by her children she was idolized and that her loving kindness is stamped indelibly on their memories.  She was a good and kind mother, entitled to the grateful benedictions of her children.  As a neighbor she observed the Golden Rule in a practical manner.  During her short illness, her death and burial, many acts of kindness were done and proffered by those of her neighbors that fully showed their high appreciation of her and her life work, none of which kind acts can by the family left behind, ever be forgotten.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  13 February 1892]

Downs, William -- Wm.

McLaughlin's company to Mexico, where he served during the Mexican War, returning to this city at its close.  In 1861 the deceased again responded to the call of his country and enlisted under his old commander in the McLaughlin squadron.  Here he remained during the whole four years of conflict and, although a veteran of two wars, he never was wounded.  He was a carpenter by trade and was employed at the A.-T. works for a number of years, during which time, he resided on Park Avenue East.  He moved to his late home about three years ago.  The funeral will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Rev. N.S. Albright officiating.  The funeral will be at the Memorial Building between the hours of 2:30 and 3 o'clock.  All G.A.R. comrades are expected to be at the building at this hour and participate in the exercises from that point.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  22 February 1890, Vol. LXXII, No. 40]

Drennan, Manuel J. -- Professor Manuel J. Drennan, brother of our late townsman, William W. Drennan, and of Mrs. Artie McDonough, died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Wm. Hudson Harper, Monday, August 31, 1914, and was brought to Plymouth and laid to rest with his father and mother, brother and sister, in Greenlawn Cemetery, Friday morning, Sept. 3, 1914.  He was born in Plymouth, Ohio, Sept. 25, 1833.  His studious tendencies guided him to Oberlin College, from which he graduated, afterward studying at the University of Halle, Germany.  He heeded the call of the church by preparing for the Presbyterian ministry at Union Theological Seminary, New York.  Among his early services was a pastorate at Madison, Indiana, and work as a teacher in Hanover College in that city.  Later his growing scholarship commended him to the publishers of Appleton's Encyclopedia, from this employment being invited to Harvard University as an instructor in the department of English.  Here were valued days in the company of President Eliot, Prof. Barrett Wendell, Prof. William James, Prof. Dyer, Dean Briggs, Prof. Palmer, and here were founded memories which the careers of various esteemed pupils sustained in after years.  In 1883 Professor Drennan was called to Vassar College to become dean of the English department, where he remained twelve years, this period of service being followed after an interval, in the closing of his life as a teacher, by a year at Fisk University, Nashville.  Professor Drennan had not married, and so in his later days, as throughout his life, his chief interest was in his books.  His literary tastes and attainments were classical, rather than contemporary, his scholarship seeking refreshments in English, German and French masters, in Anglo-Saxon and sociological science too.  As a writer and conversationalist he was a purist, and his deportment was marked by the amiability and courtesy which tradition still treasures as characteristic of a gentleman of the old school.  He was of Revolutionary lineage, of Irish and Dutch stock.  His nearest of kin elsewhere resident are his nieces, Mrs. Wm. H. Harper of Evanston, Ill., Mrs. W.J. Geer of Galion, Ohio, his nephews, John P. Drennan of Decatur, Ill. and from Plymouth, G.B. Drennan and Robt.

Durbin, John -- With 102 years, 10 months and 4 days to his credit, the venerable John Durbin, of this county, closed his eyes in death yesterday morning.  He had been ailing a good deal for the past week and became seriously ill during the forty-eight hours preceding his demise, which came peacefully and happily at last.  The unwonted age to which he had attained made a conspicuous figure in Willamette Valley history, aside from the intimate relation he bore personally in the making of that history, by deed and word, through the fifty-two years of his career sent in this part of the world.  For the past four years decedent has lived at the home of Duncan Ross, a grandson-in-law, near Howell Prairie, and has moved about but little during that period, the most notable departure from this rule being the visit he made in September, 1894, to the home of his son, Solomon, three miles east of Salem, where, on the 13th. day of that month five generations of his descendants celebrated the centennial anniversary of the patriarch's birth, by a splendid reunion and banquet, in itself one of the historical incidents in the annals of Marion County.  At this great function the centenarian accomplished the extraordinary feat of beating his niece, Mrs. Farley, of Dallas, in a foot race from the front door to the gate, his success proving how well maintained was the superb physical strength that had been his through life.  John Durbin was born near Brownsville, Fayette County, Pa., on September 13, 1794 and in 1800 moved with his family to Richland County, Ohio, where in 1820, he was married to Sarah Fitting.  They lived together until about three years ago, when she, at the age of 92, passed to the other shore to await his coming.  Of this union there were ten children, Casper J., Rebecca, Fanny A., John and Sarah (twins), Solomon, Isaac and Daniel (twins), Mary J. and Ruth A.  The family moved from Ohio to Hancock County, Illinois, in 1842, but in the same year moved to Clayton County, Missouri, from which place they came to Marion County, Oregon, in the spring of 1845, where the family have prospered and multiplied ever since.  [reprinted from the Salem (OR) Weekly Statesman:  23 July 1897]
