Gamble, Frank Elmore -- Died, on Friday, February 13th., 1874, Frank Elmore Gamble, youngest son of Charles & Harriet Gamble, aged 21 years, 2 months and 19 days.  Frank had been out of health for a year or more preceding his death.  Last fall he and his mother went to Columbia, Tennessee, where his brother E.W.

Garber, Benton L. -- Benton L. Garber, a former well known resident of this county, was found dying at an early hour this morning on the street in Chicago with a bullet in his head.  A United Associated Press dispatch to the News gives the following account of the affair:  Chicago, March 25 -- B.L. Garber, 47 years old, a traveling salesman, Bellville, O., was found in an alley near Van Buren Street and Fifth Avenue at midnight unconscious and with blood pouring from a wound in the head.  The man was placed on the operating table at the county hospital at 2 o'clock this morning.  The doctors found a bullet in his brain.  He is unconscious and will die.  Garber was found by the police lying face downward in a pool of blood, and near by was a revolver with all the chambers loaded.  His pockets had been turned inside out and no money was found on his person.  The police think Garber was assaulted and robbed by highwaymen and then dragged into the alley.  The foregoing dispatch would indicate that the victim was assaulted for purpose of robbery and murdered by his assailants.  It is possible that the revolver which was found was Mr. Garber's and that he was rendered unconscious before he had opportunity to use it.  The location in which the body was found is one of the worst in the city.  The News telephoned Bellville at 3:30 this afternoon and learned that relatives there had just received a dispatch that Mr. Garber was dying.  The  deceased was a brother of County Commissioner J.L. Garber, of Bellville.  He was 47 years of age and leaves a wife and six children, two daughters and four sons, at Bellville.  Some months ago Mr. Garber, who is a miller by occupation, was employed to take charge of a mill at Hayesville.  Subsequently an explosion occurred there which wrecked the mill and is attributed by Mr. Garber's friends to the malice of some one who held a grudge against Garber.  It is also asserted that he received white cap warnings to leave the place.  Garber, for that or other cause, left Hayesville, and for some months his whereabouts seemed unknown to any save his family, though it is understood that he was traveling for a mill supply firm.  [Semi-Weekly News:  26 March 1897, Vol. 13, No. 25]

Forest and taken to Menden, Miss.  Here an escape was planned, but failed for lack of preconcerted action and were thrown back into prison under punishment of a fast of 48 hours.  At the end of six months they were exchanged and sent to Jackson, Miss., from whence they marched to Big Black river, three miles in the rear of Vicksburg.  April 26, about 2100 prisoners went aboard the ill-fated Sultana for passage up the Mississippi River.  When seven miles above Memphis the boilers exploded and 1400 men were either killed or drowned.  Mr. Garber was on the upper deck and was badly scalded by steam and hot water, and did not leave the boat until compelled to do so by the flames.  He secured a window shutter and floated with the current 11 miles before he was picked up and taken to Memphis.  From there he was taken to Camp Chase, at Columbus, Ohio, and discharged May 20, 1865, by special order of secretary of war.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  27 April 1906, Vol. 14, No. 13]

Garber, Jehu L. -- Jehu L. Garber, a life-long resident of Jefferson Township, passed peacefully to his reward, Friday, Feb. 6, at 3 a.m., after a year's illness with a complicated disease.  The funeral took place from the family home east of Bellville, Monday at 12 o'clock, the services being conducted by rev. H.L. Canfield of Milan.  The interment was made in the Bellville Cemetery, under the auspices of Casca Lodge, No. 382, K. of P., of which order deceased was a member.  The ritualistic work of the lodge was performed in a very impressive manner, and was witnessed by a large number of people, who were present to pay the last tribute of respect to the memory of the departed.  Deceased was born of Swiss lineage, in Jefferson Township, Oct. 29, 1835, and was therefore aged 67 years, three months and seven days, at the time of his death.  He as one of a family of eleven children, of whom survive, John L., of Jefferson Township;  Lewis L., of Bellville;  Mrs. Aaron Leedy, and Jackson L., of Missouri;  Washington Garber, of Cincinnati;  Theodore L. Garber and Mrs. O.B. Rummel, of Bellville.  He was united in marriage June 19, 1856, with Miss Susan Wallace, of Knox County, who is still living.  To them were born nine children, of whom survive Mrs. John Watson, Mrs. S.A. Oyster, Misses Ida M. and Myrtle Garber, Horatio S. and J.W. Garber of Jefferson Township, and J.M. Garber of Mt. Vernon.  Something over a year ago Mr. Garber took his son Wallace to New Mexico for his health but despite all that could be done for him he succumbed to consumption.  While there, Mr. Garber contracted a cold which resulted in other complications and he gradually grew worse until he passed away.  Mr. Garber was elected county commissioner twice, the first time without opposition and served as such from Jan. 1890 to Sept. 1896.  He served some time as a member of the Jefferson Township School Board and of the Board of Trustees.  He was prominent in Jefferson Grange and did much to further the interest of the farming class.  Mr. Garber's work in the Farmers' Institute at Butler and Bellville, in past years is especially worthy of mention.  He acted in the capacity of president of both institutes for a number of years, and was a model presiding officer.  His papers on farm affairs, were always well prepared and given, and the vacancy in the institutes can not be filled.  In 1902 Gov. Nash appointed him a delegate to the Farmers' International Congress at Colorado Springs, Col., and again in 1902 he was chosen delegate to the same convention, which he was unable to attend on account of ill health.  In his death, the community loses a model neighbor, the family an affectionate parent and the people at large a champion for the cause of the down-trodden.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  12 February 1903, Vol. 11, No. 6]

Garber, Samuel -- The INDEPENDENT today chronicles the history of one who has been a landmark so far in the history of the country.  The children's children for ages to come will point back with pride to the life of Samuel Garber. Almost forgotten he was by the fast going times, but today we pause to do honor to the hero who so quietly passed over to the majority. We cannot do too much honor to those who endured the hardships of pioneer life, whose ax felled the mighty oak, whose courage defied the scalping knife of the Indian, enduring privations and want that these then "western wilds" might be made habitable for man. May the rising generation never forget the debt, while the Clearfork runs on to the gulf or the hills cast their shadows about them extol the memory of the noble and true.  Samuel Garber was born May 8, 1804, died April 27, 1893, aged 88 years, 11 months and 19 days. He was born at York, Pa., and died at the home of his son, Theodore, 2½ miles east of Bellville, O.  His mother's maiden name was Anna Mock. His father, John Garber, enlisted in the war of 1812, and never returned, and is supposed to have been killed in the battle of Lundy's Lane, July 25, 1814. The family consisting of his mother and three sons, John, David and himself, moved to Morrison's Cove, Bedford Co., Pa., where his mother married Sim Brollier for her second husband.  After her marriage he lived for awhile with his uncle Jacob Mock, and afterward learned the shoemaker's trade with his stepfather. He also teamed for him over the mountains to Pittsburg, hauling the pig iron, which was prepared in the mountains, and now to the historic city of Johnstown, where he came near having a fatal accident by the breaking of ice while he was crossing the river with a heavy load of this iron.  In 1822, at the age of 18, he emigrated to Ohio with his uncle Jacob Mock's family, who settled in Knox County, near the north line, where the B. & O. R.R. now crosses. He worked at shoemaking for a short time, "Whipping the cat" as they called it, going around from house to house. He soon engaged to work for John Leedy who had settled at the early date of 1811, were Frank Garber now lives, near the south line of Richland County. At this date there were only fourteen families in the county, eleven in Mansfield and three outside. At one time they all fled to the Block House at Fredericktown to escape the ravages of the Indians in 1812.  On Sept. 17, 1825, he married Catharine Leedy, a daughter of his employer. He commenced housekeeping on the farm of is father-in-law, when his brother David lived. He entered Sec. 28, Jefferson Twp., where Hezekiah Sweet now lives and soon bought part of Sec. 35, the present home of his son-in-law, Aaron A. Leedy. He added to this and lived here till the death of John Leedy, his father-in-law, where he bought the old Leedy farm and moved on it in 1851. In 1863 he traded his farms for those of Aaron Leedy and Jacob Garber, located 2½ miles east of Bellville. Here four years after celebrating their golden wedding, Mrs. Garber passed over to the majority, Oct. 24, 1879. His son, Benton Garber moved in and kept house for him till Nov. 1891, when Benton removed to the mill west of town. He then made his home with his son, Theodore, till the time of his death.  Father and mother Garber were blessed with nine children, nine of whom are living -- seven sons and two daughters. One daughter became the wife of Aaron A. Leedy, one of the first farmers of this county. Another the wife of O.B. Rummel of our town; John L. Garber, one of our first farmers; Lewis L. Garber, a well known mechanic of our town; L. Garber, an extensive farmer of St. Louis; David L. Garber, deceased, the father of Rev. Garber of Ashland; Elihu and Levi of our town; Jehu L. Garber, our much respected County Commissioner now on his second term; Washington L. Garber, in the powder business at Cincinnati; Theodore Garber, lives on one of the most beautiful farms in the Clearfork Valley, made so by his industry, the old Garber homestead in later years; Benton L. Garber, doing a first-class milling business west of town. It is due to say, and we will say it truthfully, that a more honorable, upright family cannot be found -- not a black sheep in the whole flock. They have not departed from the landmarks which the father and mother set up. There are forty-nine grandchildren and forty-six great-grandchildren living.  Father and mother Garber became members of the Universalist church about 1850, and continued to the end. They were faithful and consistent members. All their children living are members of the Universalist church together with the seven daughters-in-law, one son-in-law and twenty-three grandchildren -- forty-nine in all.  Samuel Garber was well fitted for the life of a pioneer. He was strong physically, mentally and morally. He was noted for his honorable dealing, and his neighbors and friends speak in very highest terms of his noble, upright, manly character. Industrious, honest, frugal and strong, he succeeded of course, and was blessed with a competence. He had no opportunities of education in his day and never attended anything but a writing school when he was twenty-one years old, yet he did all his figuring and calculating readily and was a great reader in his later life. All his possessions were tied up in a bandana handkerchief when he came from Pennsylvania. Father Garber began to distribute $1500 to each of his children as they were married. He distributed thus to ten. Afterwards he increased this to $3000 each. He leaves an estate yet of at least $20,000.  His funeral took place from the Universalist church in Bellville, April 29, 1893, Rev. John Richardson officiating. Interment at Bellville Cemetery. All the children were present except for Mrs. A. Leedy, who is quite ill. Six of the sons, full of manly strength, acted as pallbearers on this solemn occasion. -- [BELLVILLE INDEPENDENT: 11 May 1893, Vol. 5, No. 52]

Garber, Samuel -- Samuel Garber, father of County Commissioner Garber, one of the earliest settlers of Jefferson township, died at 2:20 a.m. of pneumonia at his home near Bellville.  He was a citizen of the highest character and sterling integrity, leaving behind him a family of the same desirable qualities.  The deceased was born in York County, Pa., on May 8, 1804, and during his early life his mother moved to Bedford County, in the same state.  As he grew to manhood he learned the shoemaker's trade and in 1821 with a family named Mock moved to this state and this county.  Upon his arrival here he worked with John Leedy, a pioneer family, and he remained there until he married Catharine Leedy, Sept. 17, 1825.  He spent the greater number of years of his life farming in Jefferson tp.  The family consisted of 12 children, three of whom with the mother have died.  The remaining children, prosperous and influential citizens of Bellville and Jefferson township, are too well known to the citizens of Richland county to need mention here, J.L. Garber being county commissioner at the present time and a most noted example of the worthy family.  The funeral will be held at Bellville on Saturday afternoon, April 29th.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  29 April 1893]

Richardson delivered an eloquent discourse and a glowing eulogy on the life of the good man.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  06 May 1893]

Garber, Walter -- Bellville.  John Garber, who resides four miles south of this place, received a message on Saturday stating that his son, Walter, had died at Huron, O.  Mr. Garber telegraphed to the authorities at Huron to have the body expressed to this place, which they agreed to do.  Later a message was received asking for a guarantee, whereupon Mr. Garber deposited the amount with the express agent and went home expecting the body to come at 11 a.m. on Sunday.  A few hours later a message came state that it was too late to send the body.  A brother of the deceased went to Huron on Sunday.  He found that his brother had died alone in his room at a boarding house and that his illness had been very brief.  The body had been interred in a mostly shabby manner and without any funeral services.  Some of the doctors and better class of citizens first learned of the case on Sunday and asked for a post mortem, when the body was disinterred, but owing to the advanced state of decomposition the brother's wish to start at once with the body was granted.  The body arrived at this place at 6 o'clock p.m. on Monday, and was taken to the Dunkard Cemetery, near Ankenytown.  On Tuesday Mr. Garber received a message from the Huron doctors asking permission to come and hold a post mortem.  There is a mystery about the entire affair and much room for suspicion of foul play.  Young Garber was about 18 years old and has been away from home since September.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  30 May 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 2]

Garfield, born at Bellville, June 15th.1880, and departed this life at the home of his mother in Marion, O., August 29th., 1903, aged 23 years, two months and fifteen days.  He was joined in marriage to Miss Fleet Davis in February, 1898.  To them was born one daughter.  He leaves to mourn their loss, mother, wife, sister, dear little daughter, and many other relatives and friends.  He was employed with the Postal people on the Times-Democrat, of New Orleans, until March 15 last, about one month before removing to Marion.  He was employed in the main office of the Western Union Telegraph, at Chicago.  While at Chicago his health failed to such an extent that he was compelled to quit and return to his mother's home.  Long and hard was the struggle, he having made a heroic fight over every inch of road.  He was brave and courageous, and exerted every effort to overcome the dreaded disease, but slowly his strength waned and the end came on August 29th., just as the sun was sinking in the west.  His soul sped away to its eternal abode, beyond the dark river that divides the seen from the unseen.  His mother and sister desire to return their sincere thanks to all the friends and neighbors who have so kindly assisted them in this their sad affliction.  They also thank the people of the Times-Union, Western Union Telegraph, members of the order of Ben Hur, and the officials and employees of the court house.  These acts of kindness will long live green and fresh in their memories.  The remains were brought to Bellville on Monday, and funeral services, conducted by Rev. J.F. Hershiser, pastor of the Lutheran church, were held at the home of his uncle, Wm. Gerhart, in the afternoon of the same day.  Interment in Bellville Cemetery, alongside of this father, who also died at Marion in 1891.  The mother, who will remain in Bellville for several days, has the sympathy of many friends in her sad bereavement.  [Bellville Messenger:  04 September 1903, Vol. XI, No. 35]

Garn, Adam -- Adam Garn, the son of a pioneer Ohio preacher, a hotel keeper in Bellville, and a prominent business man of Indianapolis for the last thirty years, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. M.L. Bonar, 1010 Oxford Street, is the direct result of heart failure.  For three years he had been incapacitated from work, a part of which time he was an invalid.  Mr. Garn was a native of Pennsylvania and was born in 1831.  He was the eldest son of Rev. and Mrs. Joseph Garn, who crossed the Alleghenies from Pennsylvania to Ohio when Adam was a mere lad.  The family moved into the wilderness in northern Ohio and there the father and son set about clearing a little plot for a home.  The father was both minister and farmer, a common combination of ministers in those early days.  In 1853 the marriage of Mr. Garn to Mary M. Shafer took place and they began housekeeping not far from the home of Mr. Garn's parents.  Later they moved to Bellville where Mr. Garn began keeping hotel.   Many of his old friends will remember him as a progressive and thoroughly honest business man.  In 1878 he moved to Indianapolis.  While there his wife died.  He became engaged in book business.  In 1898 he was united in marriage to Mary Holtom, a former resident of Bellville.  Mr. Garn is survived by two daughters, Mrs. M.L. Bonar and Mrs. M.N. Parr, also three sisters and one brother, three of whom live in Michigan, the brother in northern Indiana.  Mr. Garn was a veteran of the late war, but in an unusual way.  In ------- and 1861, he was traveling in the south as a book agent, owning a large supply of books, horses and a mon---- wagon.  At the outbreak of the war Mr. Garn being a staunch supporter of the blue, was taken prisoner, his supplies confiscated and he was forced into service as a warden in a Southern hospital.  For three years he served in this capacity, seeking constantly for a means of escape, but as constantly failing being guarded continually by his enemies.  In 1864, shortly before the close of the war, he did escape and subsequently coming on home to a family who believed him dead.  In Indianapolis Mr. Garn was a grocer a greater part of the time.  He was an active business man and always prominent in the city.  He was a great reader and was well versed in politics.  Until within a couple days of his death he was in full possession of his fine intellect and wonderful memory, being able at all times to give specific dates, names, etc., of incidents which happened in his boyhood and upward.  The burial was at Crown Hill, Indianapolis.  -- Louisa J. Bonar.  --  [Butler Times:  11 January 1908, Vol. 14, No. 18]

Garn, Mary Holtom -- Mary Holtom Garn was born at Palmyra, Knox Co., Ohio, Feb. 11, 1832, and died at her late residence in South Milford, Indiana, Oct. 12, 1905, aged 73 years, 8 months and 1 day.  Thomas and Margaret Holtom, grandparents of the deceased, emigrated from England about the year 1795, and settled near Meadville, Pa., where James Holtom, her father, was born April 12th., 1801.  In 1812 he came to Richland County with Isaac Hoy (brother-in-law) who stayed for a short time in "the Blockhouse at McCluer's Ford" (now Bellville).  He afterwards served his apprenticeship at the tanning business with Baker & Williams, at Fredericktown, Knox County, O., and with whom he remained until 1822, when he took charge of the "Hoy & Holtom tannery", the first enterprise of the kind at Bellville, which he successfully managed for many years.  In 1826 Mr. Holtom was married to Miss Susannah Lash, with whom he lived until Feb. 4th., 1849, when she died and was buried in the cemetery at Lexington.  The children of this marriage were nine to-wit:  Harriett, John D., Lovina, Mary, Thomas, Ellen, Philip L., Joseph J. and William.  The first of these to be summoned by the messenger of death was Harriett, who died at Evansville, Ind.  Next, John D., at Marysville, Cal., in 1867;  then Philip L., who was one of the unfortunate soldiers at the Sultana boat disaster.  He had faithfully served out his three years enlistment -- a portion of the time in the notorious "Libby Prison" -- and was then on his way home to be discharged.  His remains are yet in the Mississippi River.  Thomas died at Bellville, O., Sept. 15, 1889, and Joseph J. at Brushy Prairie, Ind., Nov. 17, 1894.  Lovina was the next to follow, who died at South Milford, Ind., Nov. 19th., 1901, and then Mary, leaving but two, Ellen and William, to mourn their loss.  On Jan. 26, 1867, Mrs. Garn united with the Seventh-Day Adventist Church at Bellville, where she retained her membership and always aimed to live a consistent Christian life commanding the respect and confidence of all who knew her.  July 24, 1895, she was united in marriage to Adam Garn and located at Indianapolis, Ind., where she lived five years, after which she moved to South Milford, Ind., where she lived till the time of her death.  The ----- part of her life, however, was spent in Bellville and vicinity, where she will be long remembered by a large circle of friends as one who possessed many noble traits of character.  We are pleased to mention that during her last illness, she who had spent so many days in the sick room ministering to others, was not neglected but received every attention and was tenderly cared for as long as mortal hands could serve her.  We must not forget to also mention that during all the weary days and nights of suffering she manifested the same kind, gentle, patient disposition, a characteristic of her whole life.  The end came without a struggle and like a weary child at the close of the day, she fell asleep to awake again, we confidently expect, to life and immortality at the resurrection of the just.  The remains arrived at Bellville Friday evening on train No. 16, accompanied by her sister, Mrs. John Seaburn, and nephew, Frank Spaulding, both of South Milford, Ind.  The funeral service was held Sunday, Oct. 15, at 12 p.m. from the residence of her brother, Wm. Holtom, on South Main Street, conducted by Eld. H.H. Burkholder, and the body was laid to rest by the side of other loved ones in the cemetery at Lexington.  -- H.H.B.  --  [Butler Enterprise:  20 October 1905, Vol. 17, No. 37]

Garn, Mrs. M.M. (nee Shafer) -- Died, Monday evening, Sept. 5th., 1887, at the residence of M.L. Bonar, Mrs. M.M. (Shafer) Garn in the fifty-fourth year of her age.  She was born Nov. 7th., 1833 on what is commonly called the Shafer farm near the present site of the Salem Lutheran church, about 2½ miles west of Bellville, and with which church she united in early life and for which she entertained an adherent, ardent and loving devotion akin only to those of the most devoted Christians.  Miss M.M. Shafer was united in marriage Oct. 1853 to Adam Garn, of Sandusky county to whom were born four children, two only of which now survive, Bell and Lutie.  Her life was attended with many deep afflictions, yet through them all she manifested a spirit of submission, yet co-mingled with a resolute determination.  Many of her characteristics were truly exemplary.  No mother was ever more devoted and watchful over the interests of her own household.  No hostess ever more desirous for the pleasure and complete enjoyment of her guests.  No woman ever more diligent or faithful to her domestic duties.  In this loss we truly mourn, but not as those who have no hope.  She was most tenderly endeared to those who knew her best.  We would bow in humble submission and say, Lord Thy will be done.  --  [Bellville Star:  15 September 1887, Vol. 10, No. 51]

Barber), with her family survives to shed sorrow’s tears over a dear mother’s bier.  Mother Garrett in early life made a public profession of religion and united with the Evangelical Association, of which she remained a constant and faithful member up to her departure, and that Savior, to whose service she devoted her almost entire life, was her comfort and consolation in her many ears of suffering, and she died in peace.  Yes, her form is gone.  Her spirit still lingers and honors our surviving friends, though her body is not there.  The sweet and precious memory of love and goodness is left for us to cherish.  She was loved in life,  she is remembered in death.  She was prized and honored on earth, she will be sanctified in heaven.  She does not need our lamentations or tears we shed for bereaved affection.  She wears a crown of glory now and a robe of white.  She has left her friends on earth and her companions are now the pure spirits of the upper world and her cup is full of joy.  May this sad bereavement teach us humility and quiet submission to the will of God.  Let it purify our spirits, lift us above the world and its storms, and prepare us for the hour of our own departure, and to meet our dear one on the evergreen shore, where parting is never known.  Her funeral was largely attended, and took place from her late residence on Oct. 4th.  Services were held at Mt. Bethel Church, conducted by Rev. G.L. Hanawalt, choosing for his discourse fourth chapter of 2d. Timothy,  7th. and 8th. verses.   [Ohio Liberal:  07 November 1883]

Gass, Allen -- Lexington.  Allen Gass' sudden death early Thursday morning at his home, two miles north of here, keenly anguished the hearts of his many friends.  His wife had left him in bed and when she went to call him found his tongue voiceless in death.  He had been ill but was able to be up the day before.  Heart disease was probably the cause of death.  Mr. Gass died on the farm where he was born 72 years ago and he helped subdue the forest on that fertile and picturesque spot.  He came of a family most distinguished in the annals of Troy Township.  They were of highest social prestige and among them were jurists, legislators, divines and educators of distinction.  His father, John Gass, was the third son of William Gass, who first penetrated the somber depths of the primitive forest in Troy Township in 1811.  He reared a cabin two miles northeast of here on the farm now owned by H. Hainer and in April, 1812, brought his family there from Knox County.  William Gass became distinguished as a jurist and legislator and died in March, 1846.  John Gass and Ann McClure, parents of Allen Gass, were married in March, 1821.  Allen Gass was twice married and his second wife and a son, O.A. Gass, by his first wife, survives him.  Allen Gass inherited all the fine elements of brain and character of his ancestors.  His mind was penetrating and his name was synonymous with all the elements of a noble manhood.  Funeral services were held at 1 o'clock, April 2.  The Rev. Mr. Thompson officiated and he paid a graceful tribute to one of whom it may be truly said that the world is better that he lived in it and whose name will long be revered.  --  [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield):  05 April 1898, Vol. 14, No. 27]

Gass, Benjamin -- Mr. Benjamin Gass, one of our old and highly respected pioneers, died on Saturday morning last, at his residence on Western Avenue, very unexpectedly from the effects of a fall he received on the evening before.  It appears that in walking near the corner of Market and Main Street, he made a misstep and fell, striking his head against the house, which although severe, he did not think serious, and proceeded to Mr. Arting's barber shop to get shaved, after being shaved, as usual he sat down to read one of the daily papers;  but upon rising to leave he felt a dizziness, which Mr. Arting's son observed and went to his assistance, going with him and helping him to Hunt & Kendig's grocery, where Mr. Kendig, his nephew by marriage, noticed that his mind wandered, and immediately got a hack to take him home.  By the time he was gotten into the house, he became insensible, and remained so until his death, which occurred about four o'clock in the morning from concussion of the brain.  Benjamin Gass, at an early day was Auditor of Richland County, his father, Wm. R. Gass, having emigrated to this county in the spring of 1812, with his two sons, Benjamin and James, going into the forest and putting up a cabin, as was the custom of our worthy old pioneers, Benjamin being then 18 years of age.  Many years ago, we had occasionally to break a political lance with our old friend on the subject of abolitionism;  but it never broke or interfered with our personal friendship.  He was constitutionally a gentleman and we always respected him, although always differing with him politically.  Mr. Gass was 83 years of age, and his remains were attended to the Cemetery on Monday last, by a large number of friends.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  24 February 1877]

Geary, Douglas M. -- Died, At Lexington, Ohio, Monday, March 25th., Douglass M. Geary, aged 24 years.  It becomes our melancholy duty to chronicle the death of a young man just entering upon a career of honor and usefulness whose amiable qualities had gained him the love and esteem of all around him.  He possessed more than ordinary intelligence and was noted for all those characteristics which make the man a good citizen and a true gentleman.  Beloved by his associates honored by those who knew him and esteemed by all, he has passed away while yet on the very threshold of life, to a better and happier beyond.  The disease (Consumption) was one which caused him much suffering and through a long and painful illness he manifested patience, resignation and an abiding faith in the future.  The deceased was a worthy descendant of a brave soldier who lost his life in the service of his country.  Young Geary was employed for two years in the Post office in this city, and we will remember the pleasant and courteous treatment they always received at his hands;  he was also an active and efficient member of the American Band, having been among the first to join this fine musical organization.  During his lingering illness all that medical skill could do was done to stop the course of the fatal disease.  Kind and sympathizing friends were ever willing to relieve his wants and assuage his pains.  He was grateful for these evidences of their friendship and he died with a prayer on his lips for all.  For some time previous to his death he was unable to swallow food, and could only speak in a whisper the gratitude he felt for the loving attentions of the many kind friends who ministered to his wants was evinced in the grateful look which always shone out of his large blue eyes.  His associates comprising many of our best young men will sadly miss him from their circle, for "Doug" their friend and loved companion has gone to a higher and better world, where sorrow and the agonies of this earth are unknown.  His funeral took place on Tuesday morning from the residence of his aunt, Mrs. John Stough, in Lexington.  Rev. S.W. Miller of this city, assisted by other ministers officiating.  The remains were interred in the cemetery here followed to the grave by many relatives and friends under the escort of the American Band.   [Ohio Liberal:  27 March 1878]

Geddes, Eleanor "Nellie" -- Miss Eleanor Geddes died at her home on West Walnut Street, at 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon from an attack of typhoid fever.  Miss Geddes returned two weeks ago from a visit at Cincinnati and Old Point Comfort, Va.  Three days later she complained of feeling ill but being a vigorous and healthy young lady she did not think it necessary to rest and accompanied several picnic parties for an outing.  Last Sunday she was unable to leave her bed and a physician was summoned, but there was no immediate danger until Tuesday, when the doctor stated she had a severe attack of typhoid fever.  She grew rapidly worse until 3:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon when she succumbed to the disease.  During her visit at Old Point Comfort a large number of wounded and sick Spanish prisoners were landed for Fort Monroe, and it is believed that she contracted the ever from the soldiers as there were a number of cases of typhoid among them.   The doctor had hopes of being able to break up the fever but she gradually grew worse and yesterday morning the physicians notified the family that there were no hopes for her recovery.  She sank rapidly and surrounded by her mother and two brothers and a number of intimate friends her soul took its flight to the God who gave it.  She died like a tired child going to sleep.  During her delirious moments she frequently plead with her family to take her home and when the angel of death summoned the spirit her face bore the expression of peaceful contentment.  Miss Geddes was well known to this city and had a large circle of friends with whom she was very popular.  She was of a most happy disposition and enjoyed seeing people have a good time.  She believed in making the best of life and as a Christian she certainly enjoyed it.  Miss Geddes was born in Mansfield, O., 23 years ago and was the granddaughter of the late ex-Congressman George W. Geddes and also of the late ex-Congressman James R. Hubbell, both of Ohio.  She came to Springfield nearly four years ago with her brother, H.S. Geddes, who is city editor of the Republican.  An older brother, George L. Geddes, is also on the reportorial staff of the Republican.  She was employed as society editor with her brothers.  The family reside at 737 West Walnut Street with their mother, Mrs. Minnie H. Geddes.  She was a member of the Calvary Presbyterian church and the funeral services will be conducted under the auspices of her church.  The funeral will be held at 10 o'clock Saturday morning from her late home.  Interment in Maple Park Cemetery.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  09 August 1898, Vol. 14, No. 66 as reprinted from the Springfield (Mo.)

Geddes, November 3, 1855.  Through her struggles of a pioneer life she brought her family and lived to the good age of 85 years.  Her heart was ever willing and her hands ever ready to help those in need.  That she was known and loved by many was proven during her last sickness.  She was a devout member of the Christian church at Bellville, where she attended regularly and loved most to be.  Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Russell Armentrout, Sunday.  Her body was laid to rest in the Bellville cemetery.  [Richland County Leader:  16 December 1921, Vol. 3, No. 1]

Geddes, George -- A telegram was received here Thursday afternoon from Springfield, Mo., announcing the death of George Geddes, grandson of the late Judge Geddes.  He was 20 years of age and the cause of his death was stomach trouble.  The announcement of the death came as a painful surprise to the many friends of the young man, who had known him when he formerly lived here and attended the Mansfield public schools.  He was a son of the late Lem Geddes.  He was city editor, of the Springfield Republicans and was also the correspondent off one of the Kansas City papers.  A telegram received here this morning announces that the body accompanied by Mrs. Minnie Geddes and Hub G3eddes left Springfield Thursday night and will arrive here tonight at midnight for burial.  Definite arrangements for the funeral have not as yet been made by some of the friends will go to Crestline tonight to meet the funeral party, and make further arrangements.  [Mansfield News:  21 July 1899]

No. 8, accompanied by his mother, Mrs. Minnie Geddes, and the brother, Hubbell Geddes.  The remains were taken from the depot to the residence of H.W. Gurney, corner of Sturges Avenue and First Street.  The cause of the untimely death of Mr. Geddes was at first diagnosed as typhoid fever, but it is now thought that his death was due to his having eaten some poisoned crawfish, as he was taken ill soon afterward and several others who ate of the crawfish for lunch were also ill but recovered.  He was ill only a week.  A large number of floral tributes were received, showing the high esteem in which he was held by his friends and fellow workers at Springfield, as well as his host of friends here.  The Springfield (Mo.) Leader-Democrat speaks of him as one of the brightest young newspaper men who ever worked in Springfield.  He was in charge of the news department, both telegraphic and local, of the Republican and the career that death just closed gave promise of being long and useful.  He had recently returned from Hartville, Mo., where he reported a train robber trial.  George Geddes was born in this city March 1, 1879.  He belonged to an old and prominent family and both of his grandfathers were congressmen.  He went to Springfield about five years ago and after a course at Drury College became connected with the Republican.  Funeral services were held at Springfield at 8 o'clock Thursday evening, after which the body was shipped to this city.  Funeral service also were held this afternoon at 4 o'clock at the residence of H.W.

Geddes, dropped dead in his chair Thursday afternoon about 4:00 at his home, 172 Johns avenue of heart failure.  He was feeling as well as usual and after eating a very hearty dinner was sitting in a rocking chair in the kitchen, reading.  There he spent the afternoon.  He hadn't complained that he was feeling badly and the first that was known of his condition was when Mrs. Geddes, sitting near the window, heard a strange noise.  She turned around, thinking he had fallen asleep in his chair, but instead she saw him rolling his eyes in agony and gasping for breath.  Going to him she raised him up, then laid him on the floor and opened the door, thinking that would help him.  Help was called and a neighbor, Mrs. Thomas Nantz, came.  It was all over so quickly it seemed to have been not more than a minute from the time he was stricken until he had passed away.  Dr. Stevens was called but when he arrived he pronounced Mr. Geddes dead.  In the evening Coroner Bushnell having been notified of the death, went to the house and viewed the body.  Mr. Geddes had been having heart trouble for some time, but he never considered it serious.  He was born in Mansfield forty-two years ago Dec. 5, and was a brother of James I.

Geddes of Joplin, Mo., is expected here tonight.  Funeral services at his late home Saturday afternoon at 1:30.  [Mansfield News:  27 December 1901, Vol. 17, No. 253]

Geddes, George Washington -- Hon. G.W. Geddes Dead.  After a lingering illness of many weeks, the greater part of which time the sufferer was hovering between life and death, Judge Geo. W. Geddes, at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, died at his home on Spring Mill Street.  Judge Geddes' death, from the nature of his ailment, and his condition, was not unexpected, but the loss to the community, irrespective of party, is almost irreparable.  George Washington Geddes was born July 16, 1824 at Mt. Vernon and was 68 years, 3 months and 23 days old at the time of his death.  The deceased spent the greater part of his active life in this city, where he was highly respected by all who knew him and received many deserved honors from the people of this district through the Democratic party.  In 1845, Mr. Geddes, having been admitted to the bar, came to this city and formed a partnership in the practice of law with Hon. James Stewart in 1847.  In 1850 Mr. Stewart was elected Judge of the Common Pleas court and Mr. Geddes formed a partnership with Hon. Jacob Brinkerhoff.  In 1855 Mr. Brinkerhoff was elected to the Supreme bench of the state.  In 1856 Mr. Geddes was elected Judge of Common Pleas court.  He presided on the bench until 1866 and his decisions were marked by clearness and justice.  In 1868 he was again elected Judge of the Common Pleas court.  In 1872 he was nominated to the supreme bench, without solicitation on his part, but was defeated.  He then formed a partnership with Judge J.W. Jenner, of this city, and Col. M.R. Dickey, now of Cleveland.  In 1878 Judge Geddes was nominated for Congress from the 15th. district on the 1,255th. ballot and was re-elected three times.  The deceased in 1848 married a Miss Lemon, of Ashland County, who died in 1878.  One son, Lemon Geddes, died in 1879.  In December, 1880, Mr. Geddes married Mrs. Gass, the widow of the late Col.

Geddes, Nancy L. (Lemon) -- Nancy L. Lemon was born in this county, May 5th., 1828, and died Sept. 14, 1878.  Her mother died when she was but three years old.   While very young, however, a kind Providence gave her an excellent mother in the person of Rebecca McDermott, who became the wife of her father, and still later, after the death of Mr. Lemon, the wife of Mr. John Gates.  The attachment between these two, the mother and daughter, was most intimate, lasting and fruitful of good.  Miss Lemon was married the 22d. of May, 1848, to George W. Geddes.  For thirty years these two walked together, and never were two souls more closely joined.  Never did two journey on life's rugged way in more perfect harmony.  She lived to see three sons grow to manhood.  It is not too much to say, that her devotion to the interests of her family was exceptional.  Her life was an unreserved consecration to their interests.  Her own family, however, was too small for the exercise of her generous nature.  the whole community was blest by her life.  She had been educated in the Christian faith, but until the year 1850 had not openly and decidedly identified herself with Christ and His cause.  Some time during that year she became the subject of renewing grace, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which she ever continued a most faithful and efficient member.  In her religious character was combined in large measure the spirit which sits at the Master's feet to learn of Him, with that which hastens with cheerful footsteps to do His bidding.  She was a most earnest Christian worker, and every good cause found in her a friend.  She was especially devoted to the work of Christian missions in behalf of the women of heathen lands, and to the temperance reform.  Her end was as peaceful as her life had been consecrated.  When she knew the messenger of death was near, she had no preparation to make.  She spoke words of counsel and cheer to those she was leaving behind, then closed her eyes upon earthly scenes to open them upon the glories of a brighter realm.  [Ohio Liberal:  18 September 1878]

Gerschski, Carl -- Carl Gershski was buried Sunday afternoon.  Three days have intervened since his death, and still the mystery is unsolved unless the officers are holding back for reasons better known to themselves.  The examination which took place last Saturday showed that Gershski came to his death by some violent means.  It is unnecessary to go into the details of the expert examination.  There was some talk of poison.  This theory was exploded when the stomach was examined, not the least trace of poison being found.  Several people have come forward with the statement that Gershski shook hands with them on Friday, Jan. 22d. and said:  "Good bye, this is the last you will see of me."  Connected with this report is the fact of the old man's raving, in hearing of Dr. Studer, about "East Diamond" street and a "creek".  Suppose Gershski had fallen, or jumped, or had been thrown onto the frozen ground, how could he have lived and been able to walk to his home after a night of exposure?  The night of January 22d. was very cold, and any human being exposed a whole night when the thermometer hovers about zero, would certainly have been unable to walk a distance of a mile or more, and especially if the being was an old man, 64 years of age.  The question is:  Where was Carl Gerschski from Friday noon until the following Saturday evening?  Had he been wandering about in a drunken, or demented state, or fallen into the creek bottoms, some one would have seen him.  But up to the present writing no one, as far as is known, has been found who saw the man from the time he left Jacob Schneider's salon about Friday noon.  A reporter called on Jacob Schneider yesterday.  He tells the following:  "Gerschski came to me Friday morning, and wanted me to loan him some money.  He said he needed it very much. I told him that I had no money to spare.  he then asked me if I knew where he was likely to make a loan.  After some talk I went with him, and we called at a half dozen places or more, and tried to borrow the money.  We finally went into Netscher's saloon, where a man by the name of Rhein told Gerschski he would loan him $100.  We then left and went down to my place, where Gerschski left me saying, I'll hurry home and get my deed?  This was near noon.  I do not know the exact time.  Mary Bitterly was waiting in my place for some time.  She went out during the afternoon, and came back at about nine o'clock at night, saying, "it is queer;  I have been looking for the old man all over, and cannot find him."  In answer to the question, Schneider said the old man had only drank one glass of beer while he was with him;  also that he was in a cheerful mood after he found that he could make a loan of $100.  Schneider says that a relative of the Kraus family came up to him a few days after the Friday and said:  "Do you know what happened Friday noon?  Mena did not give the old man the deed, and he is laying at home beat up."  Mary Bitterly was called on yesterday afternoon.  She still sticks to her story as given in Saturday's Herald and told others, which we give.  She says she was cautioned by the doctor to be careful and remember just what she would hear from the old man.  This makes her positive as to what she says.  The reporter asked her to repeat what the old man said to her.  Here are her words in German:  "Mena halt mich zurick;  sie will haba mein buba must mich schlaga."  The literal translation being:  "Mena held me back;  she will have my boy must me club."  This she says the old man repeated three times.  She states further, that Mena told her on the Thursday night she was at the house, "that the old man got the deed and left the house;  also that Mena told her that the old  man came home before dusk, Saturday night, and that he had his saw and ax with him."  This Mary Bitterly says she is positive of.  If this is a fact Mrs. Kraus' story is a conflicting one.  She says her father came home Saturday evening while she was down town, and that she left the house at 7 o'clock.  This is an important link in the chain, and should be sifted down to the bottom.  If Mary Bitterly tells the truth, Mrs. Kraus tells conflicting stories.  [Mansfield Herald:  11 February 1886]

Gimbel, Joseph -- Joseph Gimbel, of 248 North Adams Street, was found dead in bed at 6:30 this morning by his sister, Miss Grace Gimbel, when she called him for breakfast.  Life was extinct when he was found and the young man is thought to have been dead a few hours before he was found.  He was not very well yesterday morning and did not get up until about 8:30 o'clock, when he vomited.  He felt better after that but was at home during the day.  He had intended to go to the fair but it was thought best, as he had not been feeling well, that he should stay at home.  He helped his father awhile in the saloon and went to bed shortly after 8 o'clock feeling no worse than usual and even better than he had felt in the morning.  This morning his sister called him about 6:15 o'clock but he did not answer her.  He has worked for some time at the Humphryes Pump works, and was intending to go to work this morning.  His sister waited a few minutes and then as she heard the whistles blowing and she was afraid he would be late to his work she again called him and this time after calling several times and receiving no answer she went into his room and found that he was dead.  Dr. Stewart was summoned and later Coroner Baughman has [sic.] called but the young man was beyond the reach of restoratives.  The cause of death is supposed to have been either paralysis or heart failure.  It is thought that he died about 1 o'clock or later.  He was a son of Chris Gimbel and wife, of 248 North Adams Street, and was born in this city, August 29, 1878.  He has two brothers, Charles and Andrew, and one sister, Miss Grace Gimbel, who with the parents survive him.  The funeral arrangements have not been completed but the services, when they take place, will occur at St. Peter's Catholic Church.  [Semi-Weekly News:  20 October 1896, Vol. 12, No. 85]

Gipson, Stutely

Gipson, Reuban -- Our townsman Reuban Gipson died on Wednesday evening, May 15th., 1872, in the 57th. year of his age.  His illness was of only a few days duration, having been upon our streets on Monday previous.  His disease, something like inflammation of the bowls, was one he was frequently troubled with, but always finally yielded to treatment, until this last attack, which no known remedy was able to check.  Thus has death again invaded the shady homes of North Gamble Street, from the immediate locality of which, within the past few years, comparatively speaking, so many of our citizens, old and young, have been called.  Death has been to the right. left, and front of us -- and in our own household.  Now again he came, and took one of our most prominent citizens and neighbors.  Mr. Gipson was one of the pioneers of Auburn Township, Crawford County, Ohio;  and within the past ten years, removed to Shelby.  Soon after his removal hither, he invented the Gipson Washer, and the Gipson Clothes Wringer, articles that are now to be found in almost every home;  and the latter so justly celebrated throughout the whole country, as having no superior.  During the past year, he invented an improved Fanning Mill, which like his Clothes Wringer, took the first premium at all the Fairs where exhibited.  Thus his genius has wrought out results for the people, that should engrave his name indelibly upon the history of our times;  and yet so quiet, modest and unassuming, was he, that during his lifetime, the real value of his improvements were never fully made known.  It remains to be seen, whether the world will now utilize the work of his hands, and make his life that blessing to the race, which men of his inventive genius have many times, like himself, never lived to see.  In his disposition he was quiet and unassuming -- rarely obtruding his opinions upon others;  and never engaging in any contests with his neighbors, either by reason of their opinions or otherwise.  He had therefore few, if any, enemies.  Notwithstanding this, he was possessed of a strong mind, and almost unyielding will.  It is doubted if he ever changed an opinion after once maturely considering a matter.  All this manifested itself in his last hours.  He met death unfeared and calmly awaited its approach.  He was greatly beloved by his family, and particular friends, who have been so suddenly called to mourn his loss.  His remains were deposited in the Oakland Cemetery on Thursday evening, attended by a large number of relatives and friends.  Thus at the hour of sunset, while the last lingering rays of the sun on that bright evening were filling the earth with its glory, was our respected fellow townsman, Reuban Gipson, laid to rest.  Peace to his ashes.  [Shelby Independent News:  23 May 1872, Vol. 4, No. 30]

Glosser, Ann

Glosser, Ann (Knouff)  -- Bellville.  Died, in this place April 4th., 1884, Mrs. Ann Glosser, aged 80 years and 18 days.  Her funeral was held at the Presbyterian Church on Sunday, following, and was numerously attended, being conducted by Rev. Anderson, assisted by Revs. Canfield and Moffit.  The maiden name of Mrs. Glosser was Knouff;  was born on Frederick Co., Md., March 16, 1804;  was married to Abraham Glosser, March 23rd., 1824, who came to Bellville in October, 1827.  About the first Methodist preaching in this town was by Rev. Bigelow, who stood on Mr. Glosser's porch, now Dr. Whitcomb's residence, the audience being seated on the square facing north.  The husband was killed by the falling of a tree on Dec. 24th., 1830, leaving a widow with three small children:  Henry, aged 5;  Margaret, aged 3;  and Gillman, aged 1 year.  The task of a lone mother feeding, clothing and educating those three little ones until they could provide for themselves was heavy, yet it was diligently and well done.  In early years she was a member of the First Disciple church of this place, being baptized by Rev. Lawrence.  After the Presbyterian church was organized she became a regular attendant of that church, of which her parents were members in Maryland.  For a number of years past she was in feeble health and not able to go from home.  During the 58 years that Mrs. Glosser resided with us, she merited and enjoyed the kindest regards of all who knew her.  She was the last one of the residents of Bellville of 1827.  Peace to her ashes.  Her son Gillman was a soldier in the Mexican War, and therein died in 1847.  Henry and Margaret are still with us, and their filial duties towards their mother in her declining years were diligently performed.  --  [Bellville Star:  10 April 1884, Vol. 7, No. 28]
