Hagerty, Jerry -- Jerry Hagerty died an awful death at 8:30 o'clock last night.  Late yesterday afternoon the people on the streets were startled by the report that Jerry Hagerty had been run over by the cars and horribly mangled.  Jerry's many friends were loth [sic.] to believe that the rumor was true.  but in a short time details of the horrible accident were known.  Jerry has been out of work some time, but next week he expected to accept a position under Superintendent Barrett, of the C.A. & C. railroad.  His father, Patrick Hagerty, the well known Erie section foreman, with a large gang of men began yesterday re-laying the track between West Salem and Mansfield.  Jerry started in yesterday morning to do the clerical work for his father for a few days.  It was his duty to keep the time of the workmen and also record the numbers of the cars unloaded.  Mr. Hagerty and other members of the family objected to Jerry's working for a few days and tried to coax him out of it.  It seems they had a short of presentiment that harm would befall him, but Jerry, always industrious, insisted on working.  The construction train was at work about four miles east of the city at 3:30 o'clock.  The train was standing on a sidetrack and Jerry was standing on and near the end of a flat car.  The engine started with a sudden jerk, which caught Jerry off his guard and threw him off the car.  He fell between the cars and seven cars passed him, three of which were loaded with steel rails.  Both legs were ground to pulp below the knees, the right arm was crushed, the back of the head was cut and bruised, the face was badly bruised and the chest crushed and internal injuries were also sustained.  The unfortunate young man was picked up and tenderly cared for and the construction train at once started back for this city.  Jerry was immediately taken to his home on North Main Street and Doctors J.H. Craig, John Maglott and Otis Wiles attended him.  The doctors at once decided that the only possible hope for life would necessitate the amputation of both legs and the right arm.  Jerry was conscious and conversed freely with all his friends.  He was placed under the influence of opiates while the operations were performed.  The operations were finished and the young man became unconscious but after several hours of terrible agony the poor fellow's constitution began to show the effects of the shock and at 8:30 o'clock Jerry Hagerty's spirit took its flight.  Jerry Hagerty was born in this city.  He would have been 23 years old tomorrow.  He was employed as clerk for several years with Miller & Dittenhoefer, and later was in the employ of I. Shonfield a year.  During the last session of the City Board of Equalization, he was elected to and performed the duties of messenger.  Jerry's friends were legion, as he was very popular with all, and many a heart is full of sorrow today as they think of good natured Jerry's sudden and awful death.  The young man leaves a father, mother, two sisters and two brothers, Deputy Auditor M.E. Hagerty and Timothy Hagerty.  The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock at St. Peter's Catholic church.  Rev. Father Magenhann will officiate.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  20 October 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 23]

Hale, Minnie -- PAVONIA -- Friday morning, April 28, Miss Minnie Hale, one of the most beautiful and most beloved characters that the community has ever known, passed away.  She had been ill since last January.  At first it was hoped the trouble would be nothing serious, but a few weeks ago the physicians pronounced the case to be one of tuberculosis of the throat and gave little hope of her recovery.  Since then her spirit gradually slipped from us until heaven gained at last the coveted jewel, a jewel that was far too precious for its earthly casket.  Rarely do we find in one so young such extreme piety, and Christ-likeness as was manifest in Miss Hale's life.  'Tis hard for us to see the providence that smiles behind so dark a cloud, yet we would not, if we could, call her back from that "mansion in the skies" which her spirit it seemed to be entering into even while she was saying good-bye to those she loved.  Her last words were not of earth.  She seemed to be calling back from the very gates of heaven.  The last sacred rites were performed at her home by her pastor, the Rev. F.I. Johnson, at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, whose theme was suggested by passages which she had marked in her "guide book".  A large concourse of friends followed the remains to their last resting place and sympathized with the grief stricken family in this, their sad bereavement.  [Mansfield News:  05 May 1899]  Misses Cora Nelson and Dessa Swanger attended the funeral of Minnie Hale at Old Windsor last Sunday.  [Mansfield News:  05 May 1899]

Hall, Elizabeth -- Comparatively few people of this city were aware yesterday of the horrible accident which occurred Sunday morning at the home of Dr. H.L. Hall, of North Mulberry Street, by which the Doctor's aged mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall, lost her life.  The accident which snuffed out a human life so suddenly was the old familiar one, that of the accidental catching fire of a woman's clothing.  The circumstances of the unfortunate occurrence, detailed to the SHIELD man by Dr. Hall, were as follows:  Shortly before church time the Doctor told his wife to go to church and that he would remain at home.  The only other inmate of the house at the time was his venerable mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall, who, although eighty-nine years of age, was yet in comparatively good health and sound in mind.  After the members of the family left for church the doctor remained talking to his mother a short time and at twenty-five minutes of 11 o'clock left her to attend to some duties in his office, which is a room on the north side of the same building, connected with the house by a door.  The doctor had not been in his office over five minutes when he heard cries proceeding from the other part of the house.  He rushed from his office through the sitting room and on opening the dining room door, a sight met his eyes which must have caused his blood to freeze in his veins.  Mrs. Hall was standing in the center of the room with her clothing on fire from the hips up.  The doctor sprang into an adjoining room and snatched up a quilt from a bed and threw it about the unfortunate woman, finally subduing the flames, but not before the cotton clothing, which she wore, had been almost entirely consumed and her head and body as low down as the hips burned in a fatal manner.  The hair was entirely burned off, while the flesh came off in spots.  In extinguishing the flames the doctor received terrible burns, not thinking of his own danger in his efforts to save his mother.  The hair was all singed off his head, while the top of the scalp was severely burned and his right hand also recevied severe burns, so that today he is a mass of cotton and bandages and will have to remain so for weeks, if nothing more dangerous results.  As soon as the flames were put out Dr. Hall ran for assistance to the home of M.D. Ward, who, together with his wife, responded and put out the flames which were scattered over the floors of three rooms in the house.  Milton Keiser, who happened to be passing in a buggy, assisted also in putting out the fire and thus prevented a conflagration.  Dr. J.W. Craig was sent for and dressed the injuries of mother and son.  A messenger was also sent to the United Presbyterian church to notify Mrs. Dr. Hall and Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Payne, who were attending regular service.  Mrs. Hall suffered the most intense agony and had to be put under the influence of opiates.  In her delirium she called constantly for her son.  The old lady was in the habit of standing in front of the kitchen stove and as the top door was found open it is surmised that her shawl accidentally communicated to her clothing.  Mrs. Hall lingered in great agony until a few minutes after 8 o'clock last night, when she expired, her death being caused by the shock and inhaling the flames.  She was 89 years of age and was the last of a family of 10 children, none of whom died under the age of 70 years.  She was a member of United Presbyterian church of this city and a constant reader of the Bible.  The funeral will take place from the residence of her son, No. 41 North Mulberry Street, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. F.B. Foster officiating.   [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 December 1891]

Hamilton, Frank -- The fatal Amsbaugh grade crossing near Lucas has added another name to its long list of victims, Frank Hamilton being the last to lose his life at this dangerous point, Saturday evening about 6:30 or 7 o'clock.  Hamilton was a farmhand, 23 years old, and in the employ of Willard Milligan, of near Lucas.  Saturday afternoon, the young man came to Lucas where he remained during the afternoon.  About 5:30 or 6 o'clock, Hamilton went into the store kept by Mrs. Fox, where he bought some peanut candy.  Seeing a west bound freight coming, the young man said "There comes a slow freight and I'm going to board it."  Mrs. Fox paid no attention to the remark as so many people whoo come into the store talk of jumping freights.  She did not notice whether Hamilton went toward the railroad or not but two other women, Mrs. Mowery and Mrs. Brown, later saw him run and get onto the freight, presumably to get a free ride to theis city.  That was the last seen of Hamilton until be was brought back to Lucas Sunday morning by a freight crew.  The engineer saw the body of a man lying between the two main tracks about three miles from Lucas, near the Amsbaugh crossing.  The head was crushed like an egg shell as if two cars had come together on it.  It is not known, and perhaps never will be, just how the unfortunate <<consult microfilm for remainder of article>>.  [Mansfield (OH) Daily Shield:  08 February 1909]

Hamilton, Hannibal Van Buren -- Doubly Afflicted.  When death calls a loved one the burden of grief if heavy;  but when two are taken away from the family at nearly the same time it is doubly hard to bear.  Hannibal Van Buren Hamilton was born February 8, 1855, died at his home near Palmyra on March 5, 1897, aged 42 years and 28 days.  The deceased who had suffered with pneumonia for several weeks suddenly became worse, Friday, and in a short time his spirit passed through the fair portals of glory to the God who gave it.  He was highly esteemed by all who knew him as a true husband, a kind and loving father and a noble Christian man.  His sacred bond of marriage was blessed with five children, three of whom are living and with their broken-hearted mother and a host of friends are bowed in grief ___ this absent one.  Jacob Hamilton was born near this place in 1830 and died at his home in Mansfield where he has resided for the past six years, after a short sickness on March 6, 1897, in his 67th. year.  He was married in 1852 to Miss Elizabeth Holland and six children were born to them, five of whom survive and were in attendance at the funeral to witness the last sad rites of their loving father.  Both funerals took place from the Christian church of this place, that of the son at 11 a.m. Sunday, and of the father at 11 a.m. Monday.  Rev. Wilbur S. Morgan officiated at both services, interments in Beulah Cemetery.  The grief-stricken relatives cannot yet see why God has bereft them of those they needed so much, but surely He who is all wise knows best and the loved ones safe in the Father's mansion will be the guardian Angels of those left on earth.  [Bellville Messenger:  11 March 1897]

Hamilton, Mary E. -- DIED -- Near Lexington, Richland Co., Ohio, on Thursday, May 15th., 1873, MARY E. HAMILTON, aged about 17 years.  Miss Hamilton was the daughter of James Hamilton.  Her untimely death was caused by a large tumor growing in the region of the stomach.  It had been growing for some time but gave her apparently little trouble, and up to the day before her death she was able to go about the house and do little turns in her usual way.  She looked apparently healthy.  The tumor grew to a large size and it was found necessary to remove it.  Accordingly on Tuesday May 13th., Dr. Dunlap of Springfield, Ohio, removed it, and the weight was found to be about 24 lbs.  She lived from Tuesday noon to Thursday morning.  She was a young lady much respected and beloved by those who knew her.  She bore her suffering with great resignation and Christian fortitude.  At an examination of the scholars of the Lexington Sunday School, as to their knowledge of the shorter catechism, she was one of the two that could repeat all the answers.  Since the above was in type, we have received the following:  Thirteen months before her death, she was received into the communion of the church, on profession of her faith in Christ;  and from that time till she passed through the dark valley, we believe she lived a consistent Christian life.  Her course on earth was soon terminated;  and when leaving us, she had to endure peculiar trials;  but, though conquering grace, she left good testimony, that with her, all is well.  [BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY:  30 May 1873, Vol. 2, No. 13]

Hamilton, Sarah -- Died -- Near Lexington, O., May 24, 1889.  Mrs. Sarah Hamilton was born in Washington County, Penn., March 4, 1796, was married to H. Hamilton in the spring of 1819.  Two weeks after leaving the home of her childhood, she came with her husband to what was then the wilds of western Ohio, settling in the unbroken forest of Jackson Township, then Wayne County.  Mother Hamilton was a zealous Christian, ever faithful to the covenant promises, serving and honoring the Savior.  Being an early settler of a new country, she experienced many hardships at which most, if not all, would now shrink;  often riding on horse-back, carrying a child to Wooster, 15 miles distant, both to church and to market.  Mrs. Hamilton was the mother of seven daughters and three sons.  Three daughters and the sons survive her to mourn the absence of a dear mother, the husband and four daughters having preceded her by death.  The last 24 years of her life were spent near Lexington on a farm with her two youngest daughters.  In the early morning the long-waited-for and welcome voice was heard to say "I come".  Crowned with near five score years, her mind remained unclouded to the last.  Embalmed in hearts who mourn her death, she walked with God.  She now rests in the sleep of a beloved.  The loving shepherd stands with loving heart and outstretched arms to receive her into his sheltering fold, to be made a pillar in the temple of her God.  It was one of the oases in this life to meet as sons and daughters at the dear old home where we oft received a mother's blessing, but will meet no more until we meet in that home on high.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  15 June 1889, Vol. LXXII, No. 4]

Hammerle, Fred --  Fred Hammerle was struck and killed by a train on the Pennsylvania railroad near the water works reservoir Saturday evening.  The victim was found lying dead between the east and west bound tracks not far from the second band car house.  At first it was not known who the man was, but later the body was identified by Michael Masline and others as that of Fred Hammerle, a German, about 60 years of age, who has been employed on the Suter farm near Spring Mills.  Hammerle was undoubtedly on his way there when he met his death.  He has also worked from time to time in this city.  The body was first noticed by Charles Dell, fireman of T., W.V. & O., local freight 414, and Dell remarked to Engineer Allen:  "I believe that is a man lying over there between the tracks."  The flagman of the local went back and found the body, when he went to flag main line No. 20, which was following the local.  Local 414 Conductor Thomas Kanary, on arriving here at 6:30 o'clock reported that a dead man had been found.  Members of the P.E. yard crew and railroad employees accompanied by Depot Officer Madden and P.F. Officer Rapp, at once went on a shifter to the scene of the accident and brought the body back with them.  The back part of the victim's skull was crushed, but aside from a few bruises there were not other cuts.  Death must have been instantaneous.  The body was taken to the Pennsylvania baggage room and Coroner Baughman was sent for and viewed the body.  Officer Madden recognized the victim as being a man who had been working at Spring Mills and had resided in this city.  Persons who were known to have been acquainted with the man were notified to see if they could identify the body.  After the coroner had viewed the remains the body was removed to the undertaking establishment of H.H. Beelman, on North Main Street.  Here friends of the unfortunate man identified the body.  On his person were found 30 cents and a flask partially filled with liquor and he also had an umbrella with him.  He has several daughters and a son.  A married daughter, Mrs. Ferdinand Schettler, resides at 34 Prospect Alley and another daughter, Edith Hammerle, also resides there.  It is stated that the son, Fritz, resides in California.  H.H. Beelman went to the home of Mrs. Schettler Saturday evening to inform her of her father's death.  Coroner Baughman will conduct the inquest today at 9 o'clock and will likely finish it Monday.  [picture available]  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  27 September 1898, Vol. 14, No. 80]

Hand's death was very unexpected and it is a severe shock to his family, relatives and many friends.  For several years he has been suffering from Bright's disease, but for some months he has felt much better and was greatly improved in health.  Several days ago he contracted la grippe and remained in his bed as a precaution against a relapse.  Saturday night he complained of a pain in his lungs and a physician was called who pronounced the ailment neuralgia.  The physician remained with the patient until 4 o'clock yesterday morning, when Rev. Hand said he felt much better.  At 5 o'clock, however, the patient became worse and suddenly passed into unconsciousness, remaining so until his death some hours later.  The physician who attended him attributes his death to a congestion of the lungs.  The funeral will be held at 3 o'clock, Wednesday afternoon, at the residence, Revs. Hubbell and Meese, assisted by others of the local clergy, officiating.  Interment private.  Rev. Hand was born in Honesdane, Pa., in June 1859.  He graduated at Yale and afterwards took a thorough theological course in Union College, New York City.  He was ordained a minister of the Presbyterian church in the spring of 1889 and received a call to a Buffalo, N.Y. church, which he accepted.  In June, 1889, before entering upon his ministerial duties, he was married in this city to Miss Sarah Avery, daughter of Mrs. Mary D. Avery.  In November, 1889, Rev. Hand was compelled to resign his pastorate on account of ill-health and accompanied by his wife, he spent two years abroad in the hope of being benefited physically, but without success.  Last fall he and Mrs. Hand returned to this city, where he remained until his death.  Henry S. Hand, of New York City, a brother of the deceased, arrived in the city this afternoon.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  19 March 1892]

Hanna, Lena C.

Hanna, Robert -- Robert Hanna, who resides at No. 88 West Bloom Street, died on Wednesday evening week at 7:40.  He was born April 26th., 1801, and for many years lived on a farm near Plymouth, having removed to this city about twelve years ago living a retired life.  Mr. Hannah was a powerfully built man standing six feet three inches.  On Tuesday morning he was out of the house and split some wood as was his custom.  At about six o'clock he was attacked with what seemed to be paralysis of the throat and lingered until the hour stated Wednesday, when he peacefully expired.  He was a consistent member of the United Presbyterian church.  His wife survives him.   [Mansfield Herald:  09 December 1886]

Hannah, Robert -- The funeral of Uncle Robert Hanna took place from his late residence, No. 88 West Bloom Street, Friday morning at 10 o'clock.  At noon the remains were conveyed to Tiro (OH), via the N.W.O. railway and were interred three miles from that village near the farm on which he lived many years.  Mr. Hanna was born in 1801 and came to Richland County, now Crawford, and located on a farm when twenty-five years of age and was married at about the same time.  He had two or more daughters, all of whom are dead, and but one of whom was married to a gentleman named Coe.  Mr. Hanna purchased his son-in-law a farm near Wooster on which Coe's stone quarry is located.  The only son of Mr. Hanna enlisted in the war for the Union and was taken prisoner and is supposed to have died at Andersonville.  Uncle Robert never received any satisfactory information as to the disposal of his remains.  Robert Hanna was a Jacksonian Democrat, and it will be remembered that in the 1884 political campaign he was one of those who rode in a carriage in a Republican procession in which a banner stating this fact was carried.  Later in life he became a Whig and along in the forties his farm was a station on the underground railway.  But one farm intervened between his and that of the late Wm. Cummins, the father of Capt. A.C. Cummins of this city.  Captain Cummins says that he has seen many a colored man in the Hanna barn, and he recollects of being sent into the Hanna cellar once when a boy for apples and discovered a covey of colored people.  It was not an uncommon thing for the neighbors to be approached by contrabands asking for the house of "Massa Hanna", or the colored man's friend.  He would stow them away until the proper time and then drive them to the lake.  Robert Hanna helped the colored race to freedom without ostentation and for no other reason than that he believed slavery a crime and it his duty as a Christian to assist the oppressed.  He was always greatly respected by his political opponents and died as he had lived, an upright, conscientious man.   [Mansfield Herald:  09 December 1886]

Harding, of this city, is a brother, and Clem Harding, of the government printing office at Washington, is a half brother of the deceased.  Dr. Harding was a member of Mansfield Lodge, No. 85, F.A.M., and Mansfield Chapter R.A.M.;  and was also a member of Freedom Council, No. 63, Jr. O.U.A.M.  The funeral will be held at the residence, Thursday afternoon.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 March 1895, Vol. LXXVII, No. 42]

Hardman, Anthony -- Anthony Hardman was born in Bedford Co., Penn., Dec. 29, 1825 and died Friday, Nov. 27, 1903, at 10:30 p.m., aged 77 years, 10 months and 27 days, after an illness of about two weeks duration.  In early life he moved from Pennsylvania to West Virginia and afterwards to Ohio and finally about the year 1875 to Holt Co., Mo., where he resided until the day of his death.  He was united in marriage to Miss Mary E. Silger, Feb. 16, 1845.  To this union nine children were born, four sons and five daughters, all of whom survive him except n daughter who died in childhood.  Mother Hardman departed this life Feb. 27, 1901, leaving the partner of her joys and sorrows to continue the journey of life without the comfort of her presence and help in the battles of life.  At the age of eighteen years, Father Hartman, as all loved to call him, united with the Methodist church and for a number of years was a class leader among them, but afterwards united with the Christian church, of which body he remained a faithful, zealous and useful member during life.  during his early life Father Hardman was a teacher of vocal music and his experience in this work materially aided him, as he often said, in the work of the ministry which he took up about the year 1870.  His labors in the Master's vineyard were fruitful and many souls owe their start on the way to the Better Land to his effort to tell the world of the Savior's love.  His faith in the promises of the Master, and his love for the souls of men kept his spirit sweet and gentle and hopeful during all the trials of life.  His presence was as a benediction and to know him was to love him.  In losing him the church militant has lost a faithful and valiant soldier;  in gaining him the church triumphant has gained a soul attuned to sing the praises of its Master.  Funeral services were conducted in the Christian church at New Point, Sunday morning, Nov. 11, at 11 o'clock by the pastor and were attended by the entire community which assembled to mourn his loss and to look for the last time upon the form so much beloved in life, after which the body was laid to rest by the side of that of the faithful wife in the Fairview Cemetery, there to await the call of the Resurrection Morn.  Four sons, four daughters, twenty-one grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and a host of friends to mourn his loss.  An affectionate and tender father, a trusty and helpful friend, a public-spirited citizen, an earnest and loving fellow-Christian, a noble, pure-hearted and clean lived man, his death brings sorrow to all.  [Butler Enterprise:  25 December 1903]

Hardridge, Charles -- Charles Hardridge died Saturday at 5:30 o'clock a.m. at his home, 81 East Johns Street after an illness of nearly four months with cancer of the throat.  He was born in Axbridge, England, June 2, 1839, and came to this country with his parents when he was 10 years of age.  The family moved to this city and Mr. Hardridge has resided here almost continuously since that time.  After the establishment of the Sandusky, Mansfield and Newark railroad, Mr. Hardridge was for about 17 years an engineer on that road.  Later he was the engineer of the B. & O. shifting engine in the local yards.  For a number of years also he was in the employ of S.N. Ford & Company and for some years past has been the engineer at the A.-T. works, which position he filled up to the time he took sick.  his first wife was Miss Sidney Leedy, who died in 1870 leaving one child, Miss Hallie Hardridge, who still survives.  Mr. Hardridge was married December 1, 1872, to Miss Elizabeth Davy.  To them were born a daughter, Miss Lulu Hardridge, and a son, Clyde Hardridge, both of whom and Mrs. Hardridge are living.  Mr. Hardridge was a member of the Knights of Honor.  Funeral services conducted by the Rev. A.B. Putnam, of Grace Episcopal church, Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock at the house.  [Semi-Weekly News:  11 May 1897, Vol. 13, No. 38]

Harrer, Caroline -- Crestline has been stirred up over a sensational case in which a young woman came to her death as the result of a criminal operation to produce premature labor, that being the verdict of Coroner Baughman, who investigated the case.  The coroner has reported his finding to Prosecuting Attorney W.H. Bowers.  The young woman whose name is Caroline Harrer, aged 18 years, died Sunday morning at her home at Crestline on the Richland County side of the line.  The death was first reported to have been due to convulsions and acute pleuro pneumonia.  Suspicion was created that there was something back of this and the result was that Monday evening Coroner Baughman received a message from the mayor of Crestline asking him to come and investigate the cause of the young woman's death.  The coroner accompanied by Constable Winters, went to Crestline, where a post mortem examination conducted by Drs. Clutter and W.P. Bennett was held at the home of William Harrer, the young woman's father.  The lungs were found in a healthy condition and at the conclusion of the examination the coroner gave as his verdict that the woman died as the direct result of a criminal operation to produce premature birth, but was unable to place the responsibility.  An eight-month-old fetus was found buried in the rear of the lot, and testimony was given at the inquest that it had been buried there by direction of a physician.  Coroner Baughman stated that he was informed that a young man named Charles Thrailkill had been keeping company with Miss Harrer a number of months before and that the physician who attended Miss Harrer was Dr. Moses.  The coroner further stated that he would not order any arrests in the case, but had reported the case to the prosecuting attorney that it may be investigated by the grand jury if the prosecuting attorney so decides.  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  16 December 1898, Vol. 14, No. 103]

Harrington, Ozella -- The friends of Mr. & Mrs. L.F. Harrington were deeply grieved Sunday morning by the intelligence of the death of their only child, Miss Ozella Harrington, a very sweet and intelligent young lady of this city, at their residence, No. 69 West Third Street.  Miss Harrington's friends were equally shocked at the unexpected announcement and hastened to lend their timely encouragement and condolence to the afflicted family.  On the 19th. of February, Miss Harrington returned home from Delaware, where she was attending the University, feeling as if she were about to have an attack of illness.  The following Monday she was taken down with the measles.  She was confined to her bed, and in spite of the very best nursing and medical treatment she rapidly grew worse until Sunday morning at 9 o'clock, when her spirit took its flight.  She was about 20 years old, and her death is the more to be lamented because she was just blooming into noble womanhood.  Her death is a great blow to her parents who have the sympathy of the whole community in their sudden sorrow.  She was a gradate of the high school and a granddaughter of Mr. George W. Sheets.  The funeral will take place from the residence tomorrow afternoon, and it is probable that the Rev. Albert D. Knapp will officiate.  The obsequies of Miss Ozella Harrington were conducted at the residence of her parents on West Third Street Tuesday afternoon by Prof. C.B. Austin, of the University of Delaware, assisted by the Rev. A.D. Knapp, pastor of the M.E. Church of this city.  The services were solemn and impressive and the sermon was filled with the beautiful thoughts appropriate to the death of a young girl just blooming into womanhood.  The attendance of relatives, friends and acquaintances was unusually large and the occasion was one of the most sorrowful they were ever called to witness.  The face of the young lady was beautiful in its repose and wore an expression of infinite rest and peace.  The remains were viewed by most of the visitors as they lay in an elegant casket.  The floral offerings of friends were of rare elegance and lent their delicate and refined perfume to the solemnity of the scene.  A beautiful pillow of dark roses bearing the dates "1880-1884" was contributed by the high school class of which she was a member, and an elegant scroll with the letters "A.A.M.H.S." by the high school alumni association.  The Junto literary club sent a tribute in the shape of a lyre of roses, accompanied with a poem from the pen of Miss Minnie McCray.  Two baskets of cut flowers were the offerings of the Delaware literary society and the members of her college class.  A beautiful harp was the gift of Miss Margaret W. Southerland, principal of the high school;  a broken wheel of roses of Miss Maggie Niman;  a star of roses of Mrs. M.H. Howe, and equally beautiful tributes were presented by other friends.  Resolutions of esteem were drawn up by Miss Harrrington's classmates at Delaware and presented to her parents.  A beautiful letter of condolence was sent them by Miss M.W. Sutherland, a former teacher, and letters were received from numerous other friends.  She seems to have been universally loved and esteemed, and the bereft parents are in need of the warmest sympathy in their great and sudden sorrow.  "Death lies on her like an untimely frost Upon the sweetest flower of all the field."  [Mansfield Herald:  03 March 1886]

Harris, George S. -- At 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon a dispatch was received here from Hot Springs, Ark., announcing the death of George S. Harris, of this city, at that place at 10 o'clock Sunday morning.  The deceased was on of the best known citizens of Mansfield.  He has been ill for several years, suffering with catarrh of the throat, and lung trouble.  Some time ago he had a leg broken which increased his physical infirmities.  A little over six weeks ago in company with his son Ralph and Capt.

McFarlan, of the Baptist church, officiating.  The Knights Templar and Knights of Pythias will probably take part in the burial.  [Semi-Weekly News: 15 June 1897, Vol. 13, No. 48]

Harris, William Logan -- William Logan Harris, D.D., L.L.D., bishop of the Methodist Episcopal church, who died at his residence in New York last evening, was a native of this county, born near Ontario, November 14, 1817.  He was admitted to the Methodist ministry by the Michigan conference in 1837 and in 1840 became a member of the North Ohio conference.  In 1845 he was a tutor in the Ohio Wesleyan University at Delaware.  In 1848 he was principal of Baldwin Institute, now Baldwin University at Berea, O.  In 1852 and for eight years thereafter, he was professor of chemistry at the Ohio Wesleyan University.  In 1860 he was elected corresponding secretary of the missionary society of the Methodist church and held that office until 1872, when he was elected bishop.  After his election as bishop, he made the first official ecclesiastical tour ever made around the globe.  He contributed largely to the periodical denominational literature and was the author of "Ecclesiastical Law and Rules of Evidence".  He had but recently returned from England and was indisposed on leaving Liverpool and upon his arrival at New York was unable to walk, his disease being heart trouble.  Bishop Harris was a typical man, large of body and large of brain, an indefatigable worker of wonderful executive ability an of a legal type of mind which made him the trusted counselor of his fellow bishops.  As a theologian and pulpit orator he was perhaps unequal to some others of the Methodist bishops, but his great brain and force of character, his power to plan and ability to execute made him one of the central figures in the ecclesiastical world and his death removes from earth a manly man and from the Methodist church one of its pillars.  --  [Bellville Star:  08 September 1887, Vol. 10, No. 50 as reprinted from the Mansfield News, Sept. 3rd.]

Harter, M.D. -- In deference to the wishes and demands of the many friends of Mr. Harter in this city, arrangements have been made for public services which will be held tomorrow at St. Luke's Lutheran Church. Private services will be held at the beautiful Harter residence on Park Avenue West at 11 a.m. The body will be taken to St. Luke's Church, corner of Marion Avenue and Park Avenue West, at 12 o'clock and will lie there in state until 1:45 p.m. Those who desire to see Mr. Harter will have the opportunity at the church and at 1:45 p.m. the casket will be closed.

There is no doubt that the funeral of Mr. Harter tomorrow afternoon will be one of the largest attended that was ever held in Mansfield. Not all of his friends will be there for it would be impossible, but many a man whom he had helped by his counsel and advice, yes, even by money, will stand over his bier and think of his kindness; and as he does so a silent prayer will go up from him, even to be the most skeptical, that Mr. Harter may forever enjoy the reward which he so richly earned. Telegrams of inquiry concerning the funeral are hourly received from out-of-town people and the citizens of the city, one and all, will make preparations to attend the public services at 2 p.m. ** The rest of the page is devoted to further discussion of Mr. Harter's funeral.

Harter, M.D. -- FOSTORIA, Feb. 22 -- Hon. M.D. Harter selected Fostoria as the place in which to end his days for he took his life last night at the house he and Mrs. Harter had furnished for their son Robert, and which has been in charge of Mr. & Mrs. S.M. Knapp, who came here recently from Massillon. Mr. Harter came here Wednesday to look after his business interests in this city. He was apparently in good health and attended a supper given at the Presbyterian Church last night. He appeared to be in the best of spirits. When he retired last night he requested Mrs. Knapp not to call him this morning for breakfast if he did not arise. Mrs. Knapp followed his directions, but when he did not get up in time for dinner she became uneasy about him. It was a shocking sight that greeted the eyes of those who went to Mr. Harter's room. Mr. Harter was lying in bed attired in his night robes, with a 32 caliber revolver clutched in his right hand. A hasty investigation revealed the awful truth. There was a bullet wound in his right temple, the bullet having passed through his head; the blood that had oozed from the wound has dried and his lifeless body was already cold. Neither Mr. & Mrs. Knapp heard a revolver shot during the night but from all indications Mr. Harter had undoubtedly been dead several hours and the tragedy was undoubtedly the gruesome deed of an early hour, presumably soon after midnight. A letter was left upon the dresser addressed to Mrs. Harter but it has not been opened and will not be until Mrs. Harter arrives. ** The rest of the page is devoted to further discussion of Mr. Harter's passing.

H.L. Wiles officiating.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 August 1889, Vol. LXXII, No. 13]  The account of this accident also appeared in the Friday column of the same paper, as follows:  Geo. Hartman, the 10-year-olld son of Bill Hartman, who is an inmate of the Children's Home, was seriously injured on the grounds of that institution this morning.  He was holding a horse and had fastened the strap to his wrist when the animal became frightened and ran around the grounds, dragging the boy with him.  The boy was seriously injured and is at present lying in an unconscious state in the hospital of the Home.  Dr. Francis has been to see the injured boy twice since the time of the accident, 10:30 a.m.  

Hartman, George -- About half-past ten Friday morning a terrible accident occurred at the children's home.  George Hartman, aged about 10 years, son of Ex-Policeman Wm. Hartman, was given a horse, just taken from a coal wagon, to hold while it ate grass on the lawn.  The boy soon got tired and fastened the halter strap around his left hand and lay down on the grass.  The horse started to run and dragged the boy along by the arm.  Being unable to extricate himself the boy was jerked as high as four feet off of the ground for over a distance of six or eight hundred feet.  The horse kicked but it is thought did not strike the boy.  At last the strap broke and the boy was released.  Dr. Francis was summoned by telephone while the boy was being taken into the house.  The doctor arrived within 15 minutes after the accident and found the boy unconscious.  There are probably no broken bones, but the boy is badly injured internally.  His shoulder is bruised into a jelly and there is also concussion of the brain.  The boy's breathing is very labored and the gurgling noise of the air making bubbles in the blood in his lungs is very apparent.  The chances of the boy's recovery are very small.  Mrs. Hartman was summoned shortly after the accident and was at her child's bedside all afternoon.  The father was sent for, he being at work two miles east of Shelby.  At 6:00 the boy died, after being unconscious for seven and a half hours.  No blame attaches to any one for the accident, as the horse was very quiet one and the boy was very large for his age.  [Mansfield Herald:  15 August 1889, Vol. 39, No. 39]

Waring, Friday afternoon.  [Ohio Liberal:  17 September 1884, Vol. 12, No. 23]

Hatfield, Mary Roop -- Mrs. Mary Hatfield died Thursday, September 11th., 1884, at 9½ o'clock a.m. in the 88th. year of her age. The funeral took place from the residence of George Waring, No. 15 East Market Street, at 4 o'clock p.m., Friday, September 12th. Mrs. Hatfield was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, in February, 1797. Her father was a physician and a man of some renown in Germany, and was highly esteemed as a useful citizen after coming to this country. Mrs. Hatfield came when a child from Hagerstown to Canton in this State, and removed to Mansfield sixty-four years ago. Having married Mr. Roop, she reared two children, both of whom now survive her. Her daughter, Mrs. Waring, in whose home she had most faithful care, and Mr. Roop, who is still a citizen of this place. Some years after Mr. Roop's death which was in 1831, she was married to Mr. Hatfield in Canton, but again settled in Mansfield. Mrs. Hatfield was a woman of unusual health knowing much of sorrow and care and toil, but greatly sustained by strength of body through it all. One remarkable peculiarity about her was that she never lost her eyesight. Mrs. Hatfield attained a rare age. She was born three years before Washington died; was budding into maturity during the war of 1812, and was a woman grown when the battle of Waterloo was fought. She had attained almost to the average limit of human life before railways were used, and lived as long before steam navigation as she did after, and to a still greater age before telegraphs were used. Her religious life and character from her youth to her death was one of uninterrupted fervency. Her parents were members of the Lutheran Church and people of devout character. She brought a letter from Canton and united with the Congregational Church of this place not long after its organization, and was the oldest person connected with the church. She is remembered by many, who have long walked in the church with her, as being peculiarly faithful to its duties. She was always in her place at church services and during church prayer meetings, until the few last years when infirmities had come upon her. After she had forgotten other things she retained her memory of the church and its worship, and to the very last she sung the old familiar songs. During the present pastorate she has been constantly referred to as one of the faithful mothers in the church. She was unostentatious and uncomplaining even when called to bear many ills and many losses. She was unwearying in doing for others and her unselfish spirit will long be treasured by those who knew her. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 18 September 1884, Vol. 34, No. 44]

Hawk, William -- William Hawk, an old and highly respected citizen of this township, died on Sunday evening last.  He has been one of the most active, energetic business farmers in this section of the county for many years, and accumulated a fine fortune by industry, economy and good management, owning over five hundred acres of choice farming land, well improved, within a few miles of Shelby, at the time of his death.  During all his dealings, amounting to thousands of dollars, we have never once heard his honor or integrity impeached;  and as a prominent member of the Reformed Church, he has for many years well sustained his Christian profession.  Intimately connected in business with him, we feel the loss of a friend, and seriously regret, that not fearing his departure so soon, we deferred a friendly visit to one so highly esteemed until it was too late.  His disease was a singular one.  A swelling commenced some months ago on his neck, which unlike a tumor, extended over his whole body, resulting in death, much sooner than was expected by many.  He leaves a widow, and a number of children, all, who arrived at years of maturity, and able to care for themselves;  thus, though he might have been a useful member of society for years to come, he came to his grave, like a shock of corn in its season, well matured for the harvest.  [Shelby Independent News: 20 November 1873, Vol. 6, No. 4]

Hawk, William -- William Hawk was born in Lebanon County, Pa., January 7th., 1813, died near Shelby, Ohio, November 16th., 1873, aged 60 years, 10 months and 9 days.  Mr. Hawk was for many years a resident of Franklin County, Pa.  From thence he came to Richland County, Ohio, in the year 1851, having resided at his late home during a period of 21 years.  By diligence and integrity he gathered as his own, many broad acres of earth, being at the time of his death one of the wealthiest farmers in our county.  In the business circles with which he was connected, and among his neighbors, many have remarked, he will be greatly missed.  So also in his large family, and with the widow, for less than a year his companion.  He was twice married, his first wife having preceded him to the future life about seven years.  In early life he was confirmed a member of the Reformed Church.  He stood connected with the Church at Shelby since its organization, having contributed to the erection of the building, and as liberally as any to repeated repairs and furnishing of later years.  His attendance upon public worship was regular, especially so the more recent years of his life.  Until about six months ago his health and general vigor promised a long continuation of life.  This hope was however delusive, as he was strangely afflicted with dry cancer, an unusually malady, which was soon declared incurable.  Seeing that his earthly life must soon close, he deliberately settled, so far as possible, his large estate, arranging for its distribution among his children.  As a business man, he loved the world, but declared in the early part of his affliction, "farewell vain world".  On the last Saturday evening of his life, he said to his Pastor, "all I have of this world does me no good now."  And with the last grasp of our hand in a long farewell said, "pray for me" and added "the prayer of the righteous availeth much".  On Sabbath afternoon the long desired relief from suffering came, as the once busy life closed his earthly toil.  Funeral services were held in the Reformed Church on the 18th. inst., and after service his mortal remains consigned to rest in Oakland Cemetery.  His funeral was very numerously attended, by his neighbors, members of the church, and an unusually large number of business men with whom he was long in honorable intercourse.  -- N.H.L.  [Shelby Independent News: 27 November 1873, Vol. 6, No. 5]

H.N. Loose.  Since then she has become regular and steadfast in her Christian duties.  Her class in the Sunday school will miss her, but most of all, in her relations to the Church, will she be missed from her place in the choir.  It is hard to realize that her voice is forever hushed on earth, and that she can no more assist the church in the service of song.  Her place will also be vacant in the Lodge of the Sons of Temperance, to the interests of which she earnestly gave a due portion of her time and influence.   [Ohio Liberal:  19 September 1877]

Mack and Myers were called in, but it was too late, the spirit had left its earthly tenement, and, it is hoped, taken its flight to a better world.  The deceased was apparently enjoying good health, he ate a hearty supper at six o'clock, and in less than an hour was a corpse, he had not been heard to complain of feeling unwell, and seemed to be in his usual health.  Mr. Hayes was about 29 years old, a native of England, and of Irish parentage, he had only been a resident of Shelby, since the latter part of October, his home was in Washington City, where, it is believed, he has a mother and sister living, he was a soldier in the artillery service for four years, and participated in 33 battles.  A post mortem was held which showed the cause of his death to be congestion of the lungs.  It may be some consolation to his friends, to know that, though a stranger in a strange land, everything was done that could be done for him.  He was buried with military honors by Post 64, G.A.R.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. H.G. DuBois, pastor of the M.E. church of this place.  Washington papers please notice.  [Shelby Chronicle:  23 January 1868, Vol. 1, No. 47]

Hayes, John -- SUDDEN DEATH OF PLYMOUTH MAN LEADS TO INVESTIGATION BY CORONER -- Coroner Bushnell was notified Thursday evening of a fatality at Plymouth and is there today to investigate it.  The following special from Plymouth tell of the particulars of the case:  Thursday evening about 7:30, John Hayes, a well known man of this place, died while sitting in a chair in Charles Georgett's saloon.  The young man who oversees the pool and billiard tables in the saloon, called the attention of the proprietor to the fact that he believed something was the matter with Hayes and after awhile Georgett went to him and found him cold and lifeless.  Acting Coroner F.P. Smith, J.P., viewed the remains and ordered them conveyed to Hayes' home on High street, and Coroner Bushnell was notified.  Hayes was almost a dwarf in size, very slender and probably weighing less than 100 pounds.  He was a great sufferer from asthma and a great many think he had consumption also.  He was the mail carrier to and from the N.O. railroad, 45 years of age and single.  Two sisters and one brother are left to mourn his untimely taking off.  The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon, interment in Greenlawn cemetery, beside his parents.  Coroner Bushnell was called up by phone this afternoon at Plymouth.  There was some excitement at Plymouth over a report that Hayes' death was due to knockout drops and Coroner Bushnell, assisted by Drs. Garber and Holtz, of Plymouth, is holding an autopsy this afternoon to determine the cause of death.  If this should develop anything of a criminal nature arrests will probably follow.  Hayes was not very strong physically and it is thought by some, notwithstanding the rumor of knockout drops, that his death was due to heart trouble or some such cause.  It is understood that he had had a couple of drinks.  There would be no incentive for any one giving him knockout drops for he did not have any large sum of money at any time and if done at all would have been with the idea of a practical joke on him and not with any criminal intent.  However, the autopsy will determine whether any prosecution will be necessary.   The MANSFIELD NEWS dated 03 December 1901 had a follow-up to the above article, it reads:   Coroner Bushnell has rendered his verdict in the case of John Hayes, who died suddenly in a saloon at Plymouth and finds that death was due to diseased condition of the thoracic abdominal viscera.  [Mansfield News:  29 November 1901, Vol. 17, No. 230]
