Jackson, John -- About a year and a half ago, John Jackson, son of Jas. Jackson, of our city, while working at Defiance (OH) was taken sick with the intermittent fever.  He came home, and after being here a short time it changed to a typhoid fever.  This weakened his system considerable, but after his recovery he accompanied his father to New York State on business.  One day being exposed to rough weather, he contracted rheumatism in his limbs on his return to Mansfield.   He was able to move about for five or six weeks but the ailment grew so bad that a physician was called and for about three months he was treated for rheumatism.  The patient grew no better, and as the symptoms changed to a breaking out of the skin, a council of physicians held, and it was said by some to be a case of trichina spiralis, a disease caused by the eating of pork containing very small worms, not visible to the naked eye, which worms spread through the system and subsisting on the tissues of the body finally destroy life.  For this disease he was treated up to the time of his death, but as he was afflicted with several other diseases the doctors seem unable to determine the real cause of death.  The case has been examined and studied by several of our best physicians and they say it presents some strange and puzzling phases.  That diseased pork was eaten is not certain, and if it was the rest of the family were not attacked, except a younger brother who is now suffering from symptoms of the same nature.  The deceased was about eighteen years of age, and in his death, which took place Tuesday morning about 3 o'clock, Mr. Jackson and family have the sympathy of the entire community.  The funeral will take place from the residence of his father, No. 151 Mulberry Street, Thursday, December 12th., 1878, at 9 o'clock.  Funeral services will be held at St. Peter's Catholic Church.  [Ohio Liberal:  11 December 1878]

Jenner, ---- (infant) -- bur. 12/2/1878 at Mansfield Cem., spasms;  3d  [Ohio Liberal:  8 January 1879]

Jenner, Abraham -- It becomes our duty to chronicle the death of Hon. Abraham Jenner of Crestline on Sabbath afternoon, January 31st., 1869, from a stroke of palsy.  He was sitting with his family a few moments before, apparently in good health, after having made a professional visit to a family, whose physician he had been ever since he commenced to practice.  He was noticed to rise and walk into an adjoining room.  His daughter soon heard a heavy fall and hastened to the room her father had entered, found him prostrated on the floor.  She stooped to raise him when he opened his eyes and almost immediately expired in her arms.  Dr. Jenner was sixty-five years of age, had resided in Crestline over ten years, had practiced medicine in the counties of Richland and Crawford for upward of thirty years.  We first learned to know Dr. Jenner while he was a member of the Ohio Legislature in 1857, as the colleague of Col. Ralston from Richland Co., the last time we had two members in the House from this county.  We know that he was universally esteemed by the House as a candid, honest man -- possessed of good judgment, and sound discretion in all matters of public interest, and one who had the good will of the entire House.  In saying this, we pay the highest tribute possible to the worth of the deceased, for no one can pass the scrutiny of a public assembly where he comes in daily contact with others, without being put severely to the test, and he who gains the love of his fellows, is assuredly worthy of it.  [Shelby Independent News:  11 February 1869, Vol. 1, No. 14]

Johnston, Margaret — Departed this life on the 17th. Inst., Margaret Johnston, consort of Francis Johnson of Green township, Richland County, Ohio, in the forty-sixth year of her age. Mrs. Johnston was the daughter of pious parents, brought up in the Christian order, and has been a regular member of the Presbyterian church for twenty-six years. She was a woman of an amiable character, and there were few of her sex whose minds were better stored with a knowledge of divine things. She was unassuming in her manners, kind and benevolent, industrious and frugal; in property she was humble, in adversity unshaken — Bearing her illness she continued composed and resigned to the will of her God, and when the time of her dissolution drew near, although endeared to her family by all the tender ties of an affectionate parent, she resigned them all without a murmur, and breathed out her last, we trust, in the arms of her Redeemer. She has left the partner of her toils and a numerous family to mourn their loss to them irreparable. [Mansfield Gazette: 23 June 1825]

Jones, J.A.

Jones, Jerry -- At about 4:00 Sunday morning Daniel Sweitzer was returning home from a visit to his best girl at Lucas when he noticed a light at the corner of a frame building owned and occupied as a farm implement wareroom by John S. Charles.  Sweitzer thought nothing of the light, as he supposed somebody was building a fire.  A few moments later he passed the place again and this time he found that the building was on fire.    South of the frame was a two story brick block, fronting on the main street sixty feet.  The corner room was occupied by I.C. Charles, son of the owner of the building, and in it was a well stocked country store.  Upstairs was occupied also, by Dr. Culler as an office.  The other part of the building was occupied by John S. Charles and wife, and Rev. Heibertshousen as residences.  Sweitzer accordingly alarmed the owner of the building and the other parties interested.  The church bells were tolled and a large crowd was soon on the spot to see and help extinguish the conflagration.   John S. Charles is the same that was hurt in Mansfield on Orchard street a few days ago and was unable to be about.  I.C. Charles and assistants removed his books and perhaps about $2000 worth of goods from the store, the entire stock being valued at $7000 or $8000.  John Charles went warning out that in the northwest corner of his frame building were powder and dynamite and that an explosion might result.  I.C. Charles and Jerry M. Jones, aged about 58, proceeded to get the books out of the implement room, which they did easily by pulling out the desk.  Marshall John H. Smith, aged 72, marched past the side of the building telling the crowd to keep back lest the dynamite should explode.   Jones commenced to hand out paint and I.C. Charles remonstrated with him, saying that an explosion of the dynamite might take place.  Jones persisted that they must get the paint out.  Young Charles carried two buckets at a time to a place of safety.  When going away with his second or third lot, with Jones inside of the building and Marshall Smith urging the crowd away a thundering explosion was heard.   I.C. Charles had the paint pails knocked out of his hands and was for a moment stunned.  In an instant more a second, but smaller explosion followed.  The crowd was panic stricken.  The frame building crashed to pieces.  A large hole had been made in the rear wall of the brick building and the front was blown into the street.  At the first explosion the tin roof of the brick was elevated all over at least three feet.  When the noise had ceased and the excitement subsided a little, an investigation was made.  Marshal Smith's lifeless form was found twenty feet in the grape arbor.  One side of his face was almost blown away, a gash a foot or more long was across his breast and a like cut was on one arm.  When the fire permitted an investigation of the debris was made for Jerry Jones.  The trunk of his body was found near a large hole in the ground made by the dynamite.  Both arms were missing and the legs below the knee were gone.  No head could be found, and the only thing recognizable as a part of that organ was a mass of matter a medical man declared to be the brain.  His heart was torn out and turned upside down.  Bert Fishack was on a ladder against a barn opposite the burning buildings and was knocked off of it, the ladder breaking in two.  He was more or less injured.    Joseph Hanna was on a barn opposite and was thrown to the ground a distance of at least thirty feet.  He was seriously injured in the back, head, etc.  Thomas Hanna was hurt on the leg, head, between the eyes, etc.  Many others received slight injuries, the most serious being Harlan Smart, Mayor D.B. Jones, son of Jerry Jones, Raymond, Frank and Quinby Russel, John R. Gallagher, Harry Lorow, Isaac Bahney and D.K. Andrews.  E.E. Cunning had a bolt go through the rim of his hat.  The stock that was in the building after the explosion was a complete loss.  The household goods of the two families were nearly all saved.  Dr. Culler lost $75 worth of office furniture, &c.  I.C. Charles' stock was insured in the Phoenix for $2000 and Queen for $1000, which will about cover his loss.  The building was not insured.  It was worth about $3000.  The owner was often urged by his family to have it insured but steadfastly declined.  The two dead men were buried in the Odd Fellows' cemetery at Lucas Monday afternoon at 2:00.  Hundreds of windows, some 400 or 500 feet away, were broken by the explosion, two plate-glass fronts, 200 feet away, being crashed.  The explosion was heart at Mansfield and Loudonville.  [Mansfield Herald:  29 May 1890, Vol. 40, No. 28]

Jones, Samuel -- Bellville.  "Blind Jones" an old line singer known to many in this vicinity is dead.  The circumstances relating to his death are given by the Shelby News, as follows:  Mr. Samuel Jones ("the blind man") died on Sunday night at the residence of Mr. Harrison Mickey.  It seems that he came from Mansfield, where he was residing with his daughter, and was staying at Mr. Mickey's over night.  He got up during the night, and was found in the last agonies of death.  A physician was sent for but too late.  He expired before relief came.  He has been suffering from heart disease, which was doubtless the cause of his sudden death.  His funeral took place on Wednesday from the residence of Mr. Harrison Mickey, and his remains were laid to rest in Oakland Cemetery.  [Bellville Star:  18 January 1883, Vol. 6, No. 16]

Joslin, Susan -- LEXINGTON -- The bleak winter winds trill mournful cadences over the grave of Mrs. SUSAN JOSLIN, whose name was synonymous with virtue, charity, and whose culture and serene nature was a gracious benediction to her husband, children, mother, brothers, and the large circle of friends who were attracted to her elegant home by the magnetism of her presence, and the hearts of all are keenly anguished by the calamity of her death. Possessed of a competency, her generous heart always responded to the sick and the poor, and when on November 22d, the stern reaper, death, laid his chilling grasp upon her frail life, the most somber gloom filled the minds of the many whose hearts she made glad by the liberality of her benefices. All that the generous heart of her husband, S.B. Joslin, and affluence could prompt was done to arrest the progress of the dread disease that buried the hopes, blighted the prospects of her family, and for nearly four years make of her life a dreary blank. At Cleveland she was informed by physicians of high attainments in the domain of surgery that their skill could not avert her death. This intelligence so appalled her that upon her return about four weeks before her death, she was attacked with violent rigors, which were succeeded by a fever, and after many days of acute physical anguish, with a smile of sweet serenity illuminating her loved features, her ransomed spirit took its flight from its fragile tenement of earth to the joyous realms of heaven at the age of 49 years, three months and 14 days, having been born August 8th., 1834. Rev. Fulton, who officiated at the obsequies, spoke in terms of tender pathos of the deceased, and the hearts of all beat responsive to the bitter anguish of the friends when the remains were consigned to the silence of the sepulcher. The autopsy revealed a fibro cystic multilocular ovarian tumor. By fibro is meant that the substance of the tumor was of the nature of which the fibrous tissues of the body is composed; cystic means a bladder and multilocular from multus, many, and locular, cells or cavities, meaning many cells and cavities. This tumor adhered to both the front and back walls of the cavity of the abdomen, weighed 17 pounds and had 5 or 6 cysts of cells. Drs. Anderson and Keyes, of Mansfield, Carey, Buckingham and Smith, of Lexington, and Hubbs of Independence, were present at the autopsy, Dr. Hubbs having manipulated the knife. The operation of ovariotomy was impracticable owing to the general low vitality and extreme susceptibility to nervous shocks of the deceased. The husband and all the relatives desire to avail themselves of THE HERALD to thank those who aimed to assuage the bitterness of their anguished hearts, and for their constant vigils at the bedside of the deceased, and their presence at the last sad rites.  [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 29 November 1883, Vol. 34, No. 2]
