Hellewell, Lee -- Bellville, O., Sept. 8 -- A sad and startling death occurred here yesterday at about 5 p.m. Lee Hellewell, a 10-years-old son of Section Boss Geo. Hellewell, was found lying on the crossing near Fisher's grocery in what was supposed to be a fainting fit. Efforts were made to revive him under the direction of Dr. Austin, who happened to be near, but without effect, and after a few brief struggles the lad was pronounced dead.

Henderson, Dr. James P. -- Dr. James P. Henderson died Monday morning at his residence in Newville. The end came through a gradual breaking up of a system worn out by many years of devotion to professional duties. His death removes one of the most remarkable and prominent figures in the history of Richland County, Dr. Henderson having been associated very closely with the settlement of the same. Dr. J.P. Henderson came from a long line of distinguished Scotchman, who were influential and intelligent and came to this country from Scotland before the Revolutionary War and took a prominent part therein.  The deceased was born near Elizabeth, Allegheny County, Pa., January 17, 1803, and is, therefore, 86 years old. His classical and scientific education was received at Jefferson and Washington colleges. He located in Newville, this county, in November of 1830. It will be seen from this how important a part he must have taken in the early history of our county. He received many honorable attentions from his profession in the state and was frequently elected to high positions in the medical societies. In politics, Dr. Henderson was, prior to 1854, a Democrat, but since that time he was associated with the Republicans. In 1841 and in 1842 he represented this county in the House of Representatives of the Ohio Legislature, and in 1850 he was a member of the constitutional convention which framed the present state constitution. He leaves a wife and one son, John M. Henderson, of Cleveland, O. -- [INDEPENDENT-STAR (Bellville): 06 July 1889, Vol. 2, No. 12 as re-printed from the SHIELD]

A wife and son, John M., of Cleveland, mourn his loss. [Mansfield Herald: 04 July 1889, Vol. 39, No. 33]

Henry, Agnes (Fisher) -- Coroner Maglott went to Ontario yesterday morning to hold an inquest over the remains of Mrs. Agnes Henry, who committed suicide near that place on Saturday evening. After hearing the evidence in the case Coroner Maglott decided that she met death by her own hand and that the act was due to insanity caused by child-birth some six or seven months ago. There were no developments that gave any reason whatever for the rumor that Mrs. Henry lived unhappily with her husband, but on the contrary her life was as pleasant as could be expected, considering the clouded condition of her mind. Mrs. Henry was a daughter of Phillip Fisher, of near Ontario, and it was while on a visit to him that she committed the rash act of hanging herself. She was 26 years old and leaves a husband and one child, who reside in Crestline. -- [Richland Shield & Banner: 26 August 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 14]

Henry, Joseph P. -- DEATH TAKES JOSEPH P. HENRY-WELL KNOWN ATTORNEY AND FORMER MAYOR PASSES FROM EARTH FRIDAY MORNING-AFTER YEAR OF DECLINING HEALTH-Ending an Honorable career of More Than a Quarter of a Century as a Member of the Richland County Bar-In His Profession and in His Home His Life Was Such as to Win the Admiration and Respect of His Associates and Friends. Brief Sketch of His Career. Joseph P. Henry, the well known attorney and former mayor of Mansfield, died Friday morning shortly after 6 o'clock at his home, 247 Marion avenue, after having been in a critical condition for the past week. Mr. Henry had been in gradually declining health for the past year, suffering from what is believed to have been cancer of the liver. A little over two weeks ago he was compelled to take to his bed and his condition grew worse until his death. Mr. Henry was born in Monroe township, this county, April 10, 1854, having been one of the seven children of the late Nicholas Henry, one of the pioneers of Richland county. Spending his boyhood on the farm, Mr. Henry at an early age developed a strong desire to secure an education and in this he was encouraged by his parents. At the age of about 16 years he was sent to the Greentown Academy at Perrysville, in which institution he remained for several years. Upon leaving this school he for several years taught country school in the winter and worked on the farm in the summer, assisting his father in many ways in the farm work. In 1876, he entered Lafayette college at Easton, Pa., and was graduated with honors in June, 1880. Following his graduation from that institution he took up the study of law in the office of Pritchard & Wolfe in this city and was admitted to the bar in 1882. Entering upon the practice of law in Mansfield he was first a member of the firm of Pritchard & Wolfe, later of the firm of Wolfe & Henry, then of the firm of Henry & Reed, and finally for some years he had practiced by himself. In 1886, Mr. Henry was united in marriage with Margaret A. Lutz, who survives him, together with two of the three children born to them, the surviving children being a daughter, Mrs. Alice Ringer of this city, and a son, Harvey, aged 16 years. In the spring of 1897, Mr. Henry was elected major of Mansfield and served in that office for two years. He was also a member of the city board of school examiners far a number of years and was prominent in lodge circles. He was a consistent member of the First Presbyterian church of this city and a faithful Sunday school teacher and worker. In his chosen profession Mr. Henry treated his associates with kindness and consideration and was honored and respected by all of them. While not an aggressive attorney he was a careful, thoughtful and strictly honest practitioner whose word was his bond. In scholarship he stood second to none in the Richland county bar and the greatest tribute that can be paid him in his profession is that none of this brethren, in the long years of his practice, can say aught against him. In his family Mr. Henry was kind and generous, his love for his children having been indeed remarkable, and the many sacrifices that he made during his lifetime on account of his parental love are such as only the Pleased Master can reward. Those who knew him best can verify the truth of this splendid quality of his nature. Among those to whom he expressed friendship he could at all times be relied upon as a true and devoted friend. He was at all times the plain, common, honest J. P. Henry, in whom there was indeed little guile, and "Peace be to his ashes" can truthfully be said to be the prayer of his friends. The funeral from the home Monday morning at 10 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. S. P. Long, of the First Lutheran church, on account of the absence from the city of Mr. Henry's pastor, the Rev. R. M. Huston, of the First Presbyterian church. Friends are invited to the services; burial private. Submitted by Jean and Faye. [THE MANSFIELD NEWS: Friday, September 2, 1910; Page 3]

Henry, Rubie -- Bellville. A sad accident occurred on last Wednesday at the home of Mr. Frank Henry, who lived about five miles west of town. His little son Rubie, who was an only child, nearly five years old was kicked by a horse, at about 12 o'clock and died in three hours. The grandfather of the child, Mr. John Henry, intended to do some plowing that afternoon, and while he was busy, the child left him and went into the lot where the horse was pasturing, and it is supposed attempted to drive the horse to the barn. When Mr. Henry went to the lot he found the child senseless and almost lifeless. It is not known just how the accident occurred, whether the horse struck with his forefoot or kicked. The entire side of the head was crushed in, so that the brain oozed out where the scalp was cut. Little Rubie was a beautiful and active child. His sudden death brought almost heartrending sorrow to his parents and grandparents. The family had the sympathy of their very many friends, which was shown by the very large attendance at the funeral. The funeral services were held at the John Steel church at 11 o'clock. The services were conducted by the Revs. Stocking and Philpott. -- [Bellville Star: 16 June 1887, Vol. 10, No. 38] The remains were taken to the Shafer cemetery for interment. -- [Bellville Star: 16 June 1887, Vol. 10, No. 38]

Henry, Samuel Sr. -- In Memoriam. Died, at his home near Lucas, O., of cancer of the stomach, Wednesday, April 13, 1892, 9 p.m., Mr. Samuel Henry, Sr., aged 71 years, 10 months and 21 days. His remains were interred in the Odd Fellows Cemetery on Good Friday. Mr. Henry was born May 23, 1820 near St. Clairsville, Belmont County, Ohio. When a boy of fifteen years he came with his parents, who settled 320 acres of land one and one-half miles south of Lucas, near which place he has always lived. He helped to raise the first log house in Lucas. At the age of twenty-two years he married Rachel Marlow, who has long since preceded him to the better land. This union was blest with five children, four of whom are still living, Mrs. Mary J. Hersh, Mrs. Isabel M. Bell, J.A. Henry and S.M. Henry. He afterwards married Margaret J. Major; one daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, now a teacher in the Mansfield schools, was given them and an infant daughter who passed with the mother to the brighter shore. Again he was left with a family of little children. The third time he married Marla C. Clancy, who survives him. The fruit of this marriage was three sons, Dr. F.L. Henry, of Shiloh, J.L. Henry, attorney, of Mansfield, and U.S. Henry. His wife and eight children were permitted to stand around his dying bed and note the moment when his spirit took its flight to God who gave it. He was a member of the Congregational Church, never refused any one a favor if it was in his power to grant it. He had a strong will and an iron constitution and, as has been said by many, had the most remarkable memory we ever knew. He was a self-educated man, well informed on all subjects, especially the word of God. He selected the text on which Rev. Barber, his pastor, based his remarks, Hebrews XI, 16 verse, "But now they desire a better country that is an heavenly; wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he hath prepared a city." He began to complain of his stomach last June, but did not take his bed till the first of November, since which time he has been confined to the house, most of the time to his bed. He was remarkably patient during his entire illness. He said although he had been spared to more than the allotted time, three score and ten, yet his work was not finished here, and if it was God's will he would like to live a little longer, but was ready to go at any time. Then again he would beg to go home to Jesus and be at rest. One evening after having suffered the greatest agony all day he said, "I am willing to suffer all this mortal body can bear for Jesus' sake; he suffered for me." He asked his children to prepare to meet him in heaven, told them "in youth is the time to serve the Lord." And the last morning, when all thought he was almost gone, he threw up his hands, clasped them, saying, "Glory to God." Beside his wife and eight children he leaves two brothers, two sisters and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss, but they mourn not as those having no hope; they feel that he has been gathered home like the ripe wheat to an immortality of usefulness and joy and can only echo the words of Mrs. Opie the English poetess: <<poetry omitted>> [Richland Shield & Banner: 23 April 1892, Vol. XXIV, No. 48]

Hershner, Mrs. Frank -- LEXINGTON -- Shadows of gloom fell deep on many hearts when Mrs. Frank Hershner's mystic chord of life was broken, Nov. 18. She died at her home south of here and interment was in Shauck's cemetery Wednesday. She was the victim of that insidious destroyer, consumption, and her age was 31 years, 4 months and 3 days. She was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Jacob Dennis, highly esteemed people of this vicinity. She was married March 13, 1885, to Frank Hershner, a most exemplary young man. The correspondent then made extended mention of their nuptials which were celebrated under the happy auspices of health, youth, and tender love. The deceased had a bright intellect and before her marriage was a well-known school teacher. Mrs. Hershner was like an angel of love and joy around the sacred shrine of home and by her death two small children are bereft of a loving mother's tender care and a void is felt in a kind husband's heart. She had many friends and they will long cherish in fond memory her genial radiant presence. [Mansfield News: 29 November 1901, Vol. 17, No. 230]

Heshiser, Charles -- On Friday afternoon last, Charles Heshiser, of this city, aged about seventeen, was almost instantly killed on the A. & G.W. freight train, a mile west of this city, by falling from the platform of the coach between that and the box car. The train passed over his body obliquely almost cutting it in two. He breathed but a few moments after the accident. He had been a brakeman for a short time on the road, but had left it a couple weeks before. The brakeman, Mr. William Wetro, who took him on the train west of Ontario at his request, and paid his fare to Mansfield, he being out of money, urged him to keep his place in the car, as he (Heshiser) wanted to aid him in breaking; and he met with the accident after Mr. Wetro got on the top of the car to attend to the brakes. The train was stopped and his mangled body brought to town, where a Coroner's inquest was held over it, the verdict of the jury being that he came to his death by falling from a train running at the rate of eight miles an hour, and exonerating those connected with the train from any blame in the matter. Witnesses under oath testified that he was perfectly sober at the time of the accident. His remains were followed to the Cemetery on Sabbath by a large number of friends and acquaintances.

Hess, Thomas K. -- DIED -- At his residence in Bellville, Ohio, on Sunday, June 22d., 1873, at 12:30 P.M., THOMAS K. HESS, aged 33 years, 10 months and 7 days, after a short illness of three or four days. Though Mr. Hess had resided in Belleville but a short time (less than two years) he had won the affection and esteem of our citizens as few have ever done in a lifetime. Sadly will he be missed in the Sunday School of which he was Superintendent, in the Bible Class, in the Prayer Meeting and in the Social Circle. "Brother Hess" as we delighted to call him, was a consistent member of the Christian Church for the last six years. Having put his hand to the plough, he never looked back, but pressed forward for the prize which is only to be found at the end of the race. He was a member of the 32d. Reg. O.V.I., till discharged on account of two severe wounds received during the Campaign in West Virginia. He never recovered from the effect of the wounds, but was very lame, and suffered constant pain, and his death was no doubt caused by them. He was twice elected Recorder of Knox County, and served six years to the satisfaction of all concerned. He leaves a wife and child -- a boy about four years old, who have the sympathy of the entire community. [BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY: 27 June 1873, Vol. 2, No. 17]

An autopsy proved that his skull was fractured from ear to ear. Mr. Hess formerly lived in Bellville where he served as marshal for several years. In the southern part of this country he and his wife had an extended acquaintance where they are known as quite efficient music teachers.

At one time he was president and treasurer of the Richland County Bank of Butler; also treasurer of the Butler Steel Furniture company. He served as the treasurer eight years and of Butler a similar period. He was treasurer of the school board 12 years, a member of the school board nine years, and of the village council three years.

Heyser, Elias -- Lexington. The Rev. Mr. Mills, of Bellville, officiated Wednesday at the last sad rites of the venerable Elias Heyser, whose sudden death caused the most somber gloom to pervade Lexington. The deceased was a member of Conger Post, G.A.R., and sons of veterans fired a salute over his grave. Mr. Heyser was born in Pennsylvania, Feb. 27, 1827, and by a strange coincidence his funeral occurred in the 37th. anniversary of his marriage. His wife, three sons and four daughters survive him. He came here in 1884 with his family and then united with the Congregational Church. As a soldier the memory of his name and deeds should be revered so long as the spirit of valor and patriotism are exalted. He enlisted Oct. 21, 1861, for three years and was mustered in at Camp Buckingham, Dec. 31, 1861, as corporal in Company I, 64th. Regiment, O.V.I. He was severely wounded in the left arm in the fierce carnival of death on Missionary Ridges' rugged height. He heard the clash of saber and _brisk of shell at Shiloh, Chickamauga, Rocky Face Ridge, Stone River and seven other famous battles. The officiating minister served in the army with him and he paid graceful tribute to his fine elements of brain and character and valor and patriotism. His name was synonymous with truth, honor, justice and his death keenly anguished the hearts of his family and many friends. [Semi-Weekly News: 10 November 1896, Vol. 12, No. 91]
