Higgins, Anna -- An Aged Lady Passes Away. Mrs. Anna Higgins passed away Saturday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at the home of her son, Albert Higgins, four miles southwest of Plymouth, in Plymouth Township. The cause of her death was pneumonia and old age. Mrs. Higgins had not been in the best of health for the past year, and a few days before her death pneumonia developed, which hastened her death. For the past year she had made her home with her son in Plymouth Township, and prior to that time she had resided with another son at New London, but after his death she came to Plymouth Township where she has since resided. The funeral services were held Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock from the home of her son, Albert Higgins. After short services at the house the body was taken on a special car to North Fairfield, where interment was made in the cemetery in that village. Mrs. Higgins was born in England, May 22, 1820, having attained the age of 93 years, 11 months and 3 days at the time of her death. She was probably the oldest woman in Richland County. At the age of 19 years, she with her husband came to Ohio, and for many years the family resided in Huron County. Her husband died several years ago. She is survived by two sons, Bruce, of Akron and Albert, of Plymouth Township, and two daughters, Mrs. Sophia Sherben, of Lorain, and Mrs. Josephine Hopkins, of Idaho, besides a number of other relatives. -- [Plymouth Advertiser: 02 May 1914, Vol. 61, No. 24]

Higgins, W.J. -- W. J. Higgins, one of Shelby's best known business men, died last night at 5:15 at his home on East Main street following an illness of two months, the last three weeks of which he was confined to his bed. Mr. Higgins was taken to the hospital for treatment a short time ago and removed to his home when he failed to show any improvement. W. J. Higgins was born in England March 8, 1862, and was 64 years old. He established in the jewelry business here in 1886 and had been in business continuously forty years. He came from England with his parents at the age of 7 and came to Shelby from Everett, Pa. His first location was in the Opera House block where he remained for ten years. In 1896 he formed a partnership with John Sutter and built the Sutter-Higgins block, the east room of which he has since occupied. By his courteous treatment and his strict attention to business he built up an extensive trade and conducted and managed it until a short time ago. During his forty years of activity as a business man here Mr. Higgins never made an enemy. He had a pleasant way of dealing with the public and was respected and enjoyed the confidence of a host of friends. Fraternally, he was a member of the Knights of Pythias, and in his younger years was an enthusiastic member. He is survived by his wife and a son, Frank Higgins, of Seattle, Wash. He is expected to arrive here Tuesday morning. Mr. Higgins is also survived by two sisters and two brothers, residing at Stockton, Cal. Funeral services will be held at the home Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock and will be conducted by Rev. H. C. Hutchison, pastor of the Presbyterian church. The body will be laid to rest in Oakland cemetery. Friends are invited to call at the home at any time. Submitted by Terry W. [DAILY GLOBE, Shelby, Ohio, Saturday, October 30, 1926, page 1]

Higgins, William S. -- bur. 10/20/1878 at Mansfield Cem., pleurisy; 58y [Ohio Liberal: 8 January 1879]

Higgins, William S. -- Bellville. Wm. S. Higgins, for about 30 years prominently connected with the county offices of Richland Co. in various capacities, and a man who has served longer as a public officer than any other resident of the county, died at his residence on East Second Street, yesterday, at 11 o'clock A.M., aged 58 years. [Richland Star: 24 October 1878, Vol. 2, No. 4]

Higgins, William S. -- Died at his home in Mansfield, Ohio, on the 20th. day of October, 1878, William S. Higgins, Deputy Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of Richland County, Ohio. He left his post of duty in the office on the evening of the 8th. inst., complaining of a pain in his side and with symptoms of lung fever of pleurisy, and was not able to be in the office afterwards. He was not considered dangerously sick by his friends until a very short time before his death, when he suddenly became worse and died in a few hours. Mr. Higgins was born in England (precise locality not known) on the 4th. day of September, 1820. He served for several years in the British Army, on the Peninsula. After his term of service expired in the army, he came to America, being then quite a young man, and settled in or near Perrysville, then in Richland County, about the year 1844, and engaged in the business of school teaching, and for several years was a member of the family of William Cowan, Esq., with whom he boarded. Subsequently and along about the year 1847 or 1848, he was appointed Deputy Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of Richland County under William W. Irwin, who was then Clerk of the Court, since which time he has been a resident of this city and county, with the exception of about six months, during which time he resided in the State of Michigan. He was appointed Clerk of the Court upon the resignation of Calvin A. Croninger, and was elected to the office in the year 1855 or 1856. After serving a portion of his time he resigned and removed to a farm in the vicinity of Ontario. Here he remained a greater portion of the time until the election of Wm. Ritter to the office of Clerk, by whom he was appointed Deputy Clerk, and with whom he remained during his six years' term of office. After the expiration of Mr. Ritter's term, Mr. Higgins removed to Eaton Rapids, Michigan, and engaged in the cigar and tobacco business. He remained here less than a year, when he again returned to Mansfield, and shortly after his return he again entered the Clerk's office, this time as Deputy under Clerk Harmon. He served in the same capacity under Clerk Bradford, and at the time of his death was a Deputy under Clerk Dill. He has thus been connected with the Court, either as Clerk or Deputy, almost continuously since the year 1847, under all the clerks, no matter of what political party, and in which position he was without a rival. He was prompt, efficient, correct, honest and obliging. In his long practice he became a walking, talking index to the files and records of the office, and was always pleasant, kind and obliging with the court, members of the bar and all who had any business transactions with the Clerk's office. He was unassuming and retiring in his disposition, a man of strictly temperate habits, and always to be found at his post of duty. He had at the time of his death, and for many years prior thereto, so far as he knew, no living blood relative outside of his own family. He made an honest living for himself and family, which seemed to be the height of his worldly ambition, and although possessed of a comfortable home, he was not rich in this world's goods. In 1871 he was elected a Justice of the Peace, and served with great credit in that office for a period of three years. At the time of his death he held the office of Register of Virginia Military School Lands by appointment of Governor Bishop. He lived and died "an honest man" regretted by all, and especially by the Court, bar and the officers of the county. He leaves a wife and two sons to mourn his loss. Green be his memory.  [Ohio Liberal: 23 October 1878]

High, Jack E. -- Jack E. High, 79, formerly of 50 Edgewood Dr., Shelby, died Monday afternoon in Mercy Hospital in Willard after a short illness. He was born July 4, 1911, in Shelby to Addison and May Garnhart High. He attended Oberlin College and retired from the Fate-Root-Heath Co., Plymouth, as a mechanical engineer. He was a Navy veteran of World War II and a member of the First Lutheran Church. Surviving are two nieces, Mary Hoffman of Plymouth and Margy Elliott of Shelby; and a cousin, Mary Kuhn of Shelby.

High, James L. -- The American Lawyers in the November issue, devotes over half a column to the death of James L. High, which occurred Oct. 3, in Chicago. He was born at Bellville, this county, Oct. 6, 1844. Later his father moved to Madison, Wis., and the son graduated from the state university. In 1871 he was United States District Attorney at Salt Lake City and prosecuted the celebrated case against Brigham Young. James L. High was the author of several well known law books among them "Injunctions and Receivers" and "Extraordinary Legal Remedies". At the time of his death he was president of the State Bar Association. -- [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News: 22 November 1898, Vol. 14, No. 96]

Highwarden, ---- -- An examination of the child of which Minerva Highwarden was the mother and which it was supposed had come to its death violently and by the hands of the maternal relative, was held at the Mayor's office last Thursday, Dr. Race conducting it. It was proven by various means used by physicians that the child had been born alive. The remains were however held to await the inquest by Coroner Erwin, who on Friday performed it at his office. The result of the inquest was the same as that of the examination held by Dr. Race, and the Coroner returned a verdict that there was not sufficient evidence to warrant the arraignment of the mother, no marks of violence being found upon the child, and its death immediately after birth under the circumstances was apt to result from many causes. The mother was therefore discharged from custody. [Ohio Liberal: 12 March 1879]

Hilbert, Jacob -- Jacob Hilbert, the aged man, who met with an unfortunate accident Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock by falling off of a street car, as stated in Tuesday's News, remained in an unconscious condition until 10 o'clock Tuesday night when death relieved him from further suffering. Doctors Nichols and Mecklem were called and found that the skull had been fractured at its base; intra-cranial hemorrhage resulted and was probably the immediate cause of his death. The remains of Mr. Hilbert will be taken Thursday at noon to Haysville for interment. Funeral services will be held from the Methodist church of that place, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Yoder. [Mansfield News: 12 July 1899]

Hilbert, Jacob -- Jacob Helbert [sic], who fell from the street car yesterday, died last evening at 9 o'clock. Drs. Nichols and Mecklem, who were called soon after the accident, made a careful examination and concluded he had sustained a fracture of the base of the skull.

Hilborn, Samuel -- Samuel Hilborn, a well known farmer, residing two and a half miles east of Nevada (OH) in Tod Township, died at 3:15 o'clock Tuesday morning, after a prolonged illness. A complication of disorders culminating in dropsy caused his death. The funeral will be held from the residence at 10 o'clock Thursday morning, services being conducted by Rev. Davis, pastor of the Methodist church at Nevada. Burial in the Nevada cemetery. Samuel Hilborn was born in Richland County in June, 1837, and at death was almost sixty-eight years of age. He located in Tod township in 1860, and for forty-five years was a respected and honored citizen of that township. When a young man he was united in marriage to Miss Mary Reinhart, a native of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Ten children were born to them, all of whom are living and were at home to share their mother's grief to see their father's remains laid to rest.

Hildebrant, Carl -- Word was received in this city Monday of a sad accident which befell Carl Hildebrant, a son of 'Squire Hiram W. Hildebrant of Shelby, and which cost him his life.  Sunday afternoon Mr. & Mrs. Hildebrant returned from a drive about 5 o'clock and their son asked if he could ride the horse a short distance.  His father put on the saddle and the boy started to take a ride.  He rode to the Catholic Church when he turned round to come back.  The horse commenced to run and the boy became frightened.  He called to a neighbor named Frank Ambruster [sic.] to stop the animal, which the latter attempted to do by getting in front of him and waving his hands.  The horse shied and threw young Hildebrant off.  He fell on the base of his spine and dislocated his spinal column.  He was carried home, where he died in an hour and a half.  His mother was not at home when the accident occurred, but had gone to visit a neighbor.  [Mansfield Herald:  21 October 1886]

Hiles, Richard -- DIED -- Near Nevada, Story Co., Iowa, Mr. RICHARD HILES, in the ninety-second year of his age. The above well known and truly venerable man, for many years amongst us, held the distinction of being literally the "oldest inhabitant". A few items in regard to his history will therefore be interesting to many. He was born in Lincolnshire, England, January 24th., 1780 -- old style, which in our calendar would be January 2d. He married a Miss Ann Faulkner in 1814 and emigrated to this country in 1830 -- arriving on July 4th. of that year. He remained a citizen of this community to within three years, when he went to spend his remaining days with his daughter, Mrs. Mathews, near Nevada, Story County, Iowa. In 1840, he lost his beloved companion, and also his eldest son within a few days of each other. These sudden and terrible visitations of Providence caused him to think, as never before, of Death, and eternity, and shortly afterwards embraced religion. He connected himself with the M.E. Church, living a consistent member thereof up to his decease, having a good hope and trust of meeting those whom he loved on earth in a "better country".

Hill, Lydia A. €€

Hill, Mary (Ruhl) -- The following from the Galion (OH) Inquirer of last evening will be sad news to Mrs. Hill's many friends in this city, the deceased lady having lived here for several years prior to her marriage to Rev. Thomas Hill, and being known as a Christian lady of many accomplishments and good works: Mrs. Rev. Hill, nee Mary Ruhl, died yesterday at Chesterville at 4 p.m., after having suffered an operation for a stricture of the bowels several days previous. On Wednesday night the parsonage caught fire, presumably from spontaneous combustion in some oily rags which had been used in swathing Mrs. Hill's body, and which had been placed in the kitchen. When discovered by Rev. Hill the fire had made such headway that the family had barely time to escape and he was badly burned about the face in an endeavor to fight the fire. Mrs. Hill was removed with difficulty, but her death was due to the stricture and not the result of fright as was rumored. Mrs. Hill is a sister of Mrs. O.T. Hart, of this city, Mrs. Rupp, of Bucyrus and Mrs. S.G. Cummings, of Mansfield. She was born in Galion in 1833, in the old Franklin house, and has many friends here who will regret to hear of her sad death. She was married to Rev. Hill when he resided at Crestline, nearly two years ago. The remains will be brought to Galion on the Big Four 5 p.m. train today and will be taken to the residence of her sister, Mrs. O.T. Hart, on North Columbus Street. The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, with services at the English Lutheran church, conducted by Rev. Dr. H.L. Wiles, of Mansfield, assisted by Rev. J.K. Argo and Rev. E.P. Elcock. The remains will be placed in the vault at Fairview Cemetery. [Richland Shield & Banner: 20 May 1893]

Hine, Jacob -- Jacob Hine was found dead at his home, 235 South Adams Street, about 9 o'clock Wednesday night, having hanged himself. There is no doubt that it was premeditated suicide. Hine's neighbors had missed him Wednesday and they notified the police, who forced an entrance into the house and found Hine hanging in the parlor. He had apparently been dead some time. Drink and trouble with his wife are said to be responsible for Hine's untimely end. The victim of the tragedy was 62 years of age and well known in Mansfield. He has been in the employ of Stoodt & Sons as a butcher for seven or eight years and was reckoned a good worker when sober. Hine would work along for a period of any where from three to six months and then he would get on a drunk and quit work for a week or two. When his supply of money ran out each time he would return to work, according to the story of his employer. These sprees have been getting more numerous of late and it is also stated that Hine had trouble with his wife, who is a daughter of the late George Baker. It is probable that Hine's drinking bouts had something to do with the trouble. To friends, Hine claimed that his wife's mind was getting weak, while Mrs. Hine, it is stated, told her friends that her husband was trying to poison her. Mr. & Mrs. Hine owned a fine property well furnished on South Adams Street. In addition to this Mrs. Hine had investments, the property having come to her from her father's estate. A week or ten days ago Hine started on one of his periodical drunks and quit work with Stoodt & Sons. His employers thought nothing unusual about the matter and supposed he would return to work again when he got ready. About this time Hine and his wife had a disagreement which resulted in Mrs. Hine's going to Crestline to live with a married sister. The neighbors, of course, were cognizant of the state of affairs in the family and when Hine was not seen about all day Wednesday they proceeded to make an investigation. They found the house securely locked and when they were unable to gain admission they notified the police, who entered the house and found Hine as above described. The house was in good order with the exception of an overturned chair and a piece of rope which lay on the floor and had evidently been discarded in favor of a piece of half-inch rope as a means of suicide. It is probable that Hine feared that the manila rope might break so he used a half-inch rope. Hine had very cleverly tied a regular hangman's noose. After the noose was made he tied the other end to the door knob and then passed it up over the top f the door which was quite a tall one. Next he placed a chair beside the door, mounted it, placed his neck in the noose and kicked the chair away. When found Hine's feet were six or eight inches from the floor. The heavy rope had made death by strangling many times longer than would have been the case had the piece of manila rope been used. Coroner Baughman was immediately notified by the police and he paid a visit to the scene of the suicide and cut down the body. In Hine's pocket was found $2.65, but he left no message. It is stated that Hine told a friend on Monday that he placed $75 in money in one of the banks as he did not have any use for it. Coroner Baughman will old an inquest commencing at 3 o'clock this afternoon but he states that unless something unexpected should develop his verdict must be suicide. Mrs. Hine was not notified of her husband's suicide last night, but a message was sent to her at Crestline this morning and it is expected that she will arrive here some time this afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. Hine had no children and it is stated that Hine's nearest relative in Mansfield is a nephew, but at this writing the coroner has not yet secured the man's name. The suicide created considerable of a sensation in the southeast part of town, although it was not known in the business part of the city to any extent last night. It is stated that Hine is a member of the German lodge of Odd Fellows. -- [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield): 20 May 1898, Vol. 14, No. 43]

Hines, Benjamin F. -- Bellville, March 24 -- The body of Benjamin F. Hines, father of Mayor Hines, and a prominent resident of this place and well known throughout Richland County, was found in the Clear Fork creek, east of here about 8 o'clock this morning. It could not be told from the position of the body whether the deceased had come to his death by accident or had suicided. The former theory, however, is generally accepted. Mr. Hines has been subject to fits of dizziness and it is supposed that he may have fallen in the water while suffering from one of these attacks. Mr. Hines lives in town, but owns a farm just east of the corporation. Yesterday morning, armed with an ax, he started for his farm for the purpose of planting a number of willows along the bank of the Clear Fork, which runs through his farm. As he frequently ate dinner with his tenant on the farm his absence at noon created no comment, but when he failed to return home last night his relatives and friends became alarmed and organized searching parties. Throughout all last night the country surrounding the village was traversed, but with no success. This morning the hunt was continued and, in following the bank of the creek, the searching party found Mr. Hines ax standing against a tree and four willow shoots that the old gentleman had planted along the bank. Continuing the search they found the deceased's blouse hanging on the fence. A few feet farther on in the stream was found the dead man's body submerged in the water with the exception of the head. The remains were carried back to the village and placed in the hands of an undertaker for preparation for burial. Mr. Hines was about 62 years of age, was raised in the country near this place and lived in Bellville for many years and was a man of considerable means. He leaves a wife and one son, C. Burt Hines, our present Mayor, besides a large circle of friends. For many years he has been a Mason and Odd Fellow and these two bodies will have charge of the funeral, which will take place from the family residence at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon. [Richland Shield & Banner: 01 April 1893]

Hines, Benjamin F. -- Wednesday. C. Burt Hines, of Bellville, was in the city today. In conversation with a SHIELD man Mr. Hines, in speaking of his father's sudden death recently, said that it is his opinion that he died of heart disease or apoplexy and not by suicide, from the fact that the deceased's father dropped over dead some years ago and his mother died while sitting in a chair conversing with friends. In fact, Mr. Hines says, sudden deaths seem to be prevalent in the family. [Richland Shield & Banner: 01 April 1893]

Mr. Hines has lingered for many months. For awhile he was better.

Hipp, Gustavus Adolphus "Ed" -- The death of "Ed" Hipp, mention of which was made in yesterday's paper, was received by the deceased's many friends with much sorrow, for it took from their midst a young man who has always been industrious and highly respected by all who knew him. Gustavus Adolphus Hipp, or "Ed" as he was called by his acquaintances, was born in Bucyrus July 27th., 1864, and was the son of Sebastian Hipp and wife, of South Adams Street. In 1872 the deceased moved with his parents to this city, where he attended school.

On April 11th., 1886, Mr. Hipp was married to Miss Mary Costello, of Crestline, and two children, a son and a daughter, who are 2 and 3 years old respectively, are the result of the union. On the 6th. of November last the deceased was taken ill, and the physicians announced that he was suffering with dropsy.

He grew gradually worse, and at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, surrounded by his wife, children, parents and brothers and sisters, he departed this life, remaining conscious to the last.

Hiskey, Irwin -- WILL BRING BACK BODY OF SOLDIER WHO DIED IN WAR -- Remains of Irwin Hiskey on Way From France -- Soldiers Plan for Funeral -- Word has been received Wednesday from Washington, D.C., that the body of Private Irwin Hiskey, Bellville soldier, who was killed in battle in France, would arrive Friday at Hoboken, N.J., and that arrangements would be made at once for shipment to Bellville. Commander A.C.

The deceased young man, who was very popular among his comrades, was at first a member of the eighty-third division, later in France being transferred to Company K, 16th. Infantry, of the fourth division. It was during the fierce fighting in the Argonne forest that the young man fell in battle.

Hiskey, Samuel -- Another sacrifice has been added to the many who before have fallen in the defense of our much loved country against the most wicked and terrible rebellion this world has ever witnessed, and which must be calculated to awaken in the hearts of many friends, a deeper hatred toward that institution which is the cause of such an unnatural and bloody war. Samuel Hiskey, son of Rev. Geo. Hiskey of this county, died March 5th., 1863, in Lebanon, Ky., of typhoid pneumonia. He enlisted in Captain R.C. Brown's Company, 64th. Regiment, O.V., with which he went to Kentucky, where he fell a victim to disease, and ____ an illness of nearly seven weeks closed the mortal conflict. Although far from home and principally among strangers, such care and attention, as the circumstances would admit, were bestowed upon him, receiving, also the best medical aid that could be rendered, and from the 3rd. of February until his spirit left its earthly habitation, was kindly and tenderly cared for by his father, who afterward brought his remains home for interment. The deceased was a pious and devoted Christian. During the time of his afflictions he enjoyed a calm and peaceful state of mind, and especially a day or two before his departure, a serene happiness filled his soul, and he appeared, in is mortal measure, "to enter into the joy of his Lord." Thus he passed away to receive, we trust, the Christian victor's crown. His burial occurred on the 10th. inst., when a large congregation assembled to express their esteem for him and to honor his memory. May the consolations of Him who gave his life for the world fill the hearts of the bereaved. -- S.K., Lexington, O., March 22d. [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News: 26 March 1862]

Hissong, Levi -- Coshocton, O., Aug. 21 -- Levi Hissong died today under peculiar circumstances. One week ago he visited Chautauqua Lake, N.Y., with a party of excursionists. At Jamestown the passengers partook of supper and beef steak that seemed badly tainted. Hissong swallowed a small portion and became deathly sick, but managed to reach home. His agony was terrible. A post-mortem is being held tonight. Others, who partook of the steak, have been seriously ill. The unfortunate victim of the above was a resident of Mansfield until recent years, when he purchased a restaurant at Coshocton. He carried on an oil and gasoline business and was a familiar figure about the city. As an extra man of the fire department he and his oil wagon were present at nearly every fire which occurred while he was out at his regular avocation. The horses knew the fire bell and were always ready for a run at the first sound of its tap and it frequently happened when their driver was away when the bell rang the horses would start at a breakneck gait leaving "Pansy" behind. He was a man of bravery, whole-souled and well liked. [Semi-Weekly News: 24 August 1897, Vol. 13, No. 68]
