Kiel, Conrad -- B.O. Hildreth yesterday received a letter from his brother-in-law, Ed Kiel, of Los Vegas ranch, Nevada, dated January 3rd., stating that his father, Conrad Kiel, had died that morning from an attack of la grippe.  Conrad Kiel was born in Pennsylvania in 1808 and went to Philadelphia when he was 21 years of age.  There he was married.  In 1845 he moved with his wife to this city and bought a home on West Fourth Street, where his wife, who is 82 years old, now lives.  Mr. Kiel was a tailor by trade and carried on that business for a number of years and then went in the stone quarry business.  He worked the old stone quarry on West Third Street opposite the home of Judge Dirlam.  In 1849, when the gold fever broke out, he went with a party to California and for a number of years was engaged in cattle-raising.  Mr. Kiel was the father of seven children, six of whom are living:  Van Buren, William, Joe and Mrs. B.O. Hildreth, of this city;  Frank, of Lincoln, Neb., and Ed, at whose home the old gentleman died.  The letter stated that the remains would be interred at Los Vegas.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  20 January 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 36]

Kilburn, Minnie -- Plymouth.  The funeral of Miss Minnie Kilburn, who died on last Saturday evening, took place Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock.  Miss Kilburn was a most estimable young lady and the community has lost one of its brightest gems in her death.  She was a member of the graduating class of '87 of the Plymouth schools, and her class felt the first invasion into their ranks very keenly.  One piece was furnished by her class, another by the P.A.C. of which she was president.  The sympathy for the family is universal, and it has been a long time since the community has lost a person who was so highly esteemed by all.  [Mansfield Weekly News:  18 August 1887, Vol. 3, No. 38]

Kimball, Harriet Whitney. - The passing away of Harriet Whitney Kimball, of Columbus, should have more than casual mention.  Her illness was brief and decease a great shock to her many friends, coming so soon after a holiday visit to her old home  As a girl, Hattie Whitney lived among us and in school and church grew to womanhood  Her winning manners and tender heart endeared her to all she met and when she left Mansfield some 16 years ago, the wife of Walter B. Kimball, of Columbus, who had also before for some time made his home here, the hearty good wishes of a large circle of friends followed them to their new home.  Her subsequent visits kept up the acquaintance and the welcome always hers showed how sincere and strong were the appreciation and love of friends.  Her lot was a happy one, warm friends, a particularly happy home and happy church surroundings all making life attractive and worth the living, were hers to enjoy and impart back again.  Suddenly the happy home is broken and a light has gone out, but the memory of her life will be treasured in many hearts.  M.  Submitted by Faye and Jean  [The Mansfield News:  Saturday Evening, January 7, 1899]

Kimball, Lulu (Townsley) -- Word has been received in this city of the death of Mrs. Howard Kimball who committed suicide in Kansas City, Mo. by drinking carbolic acid.  The deed for which there is no cause given, was committed on the day of her wedding anniversary.  Mr. and Mrs. Kimball were former Mansfield people and their wedding took place in this city twenty years ago.  She was Miss Lulu Townsley, the daughter of C.C. Townsley who conducted the North American Hotel, now the Southern.  Her husband was in the shoe business in this city.  Shortly after their marriage, Mr. and Mrs. Kimball went to Kansas City to live.  Mr. Kimball was prominent in business and his wife was a society favorite.  [Mansfield Daily Shield:  28 October 1910]

Kimball, Mary Eliza (Glessner) -- At one o'clock A.M., April 1st., 1875, in the Grand Central Hotel, New York City, Mrs. Mary Eliza Kimball, departed this life, aged 38 years, 11 months and 4 days.  The funeral rites were solemnized at 3 o'clock P.M., Saturday, April 3d., at the residence of her stricken parents, in this city and her remains were interred in the Zanesville City Cemetery, attended by a numerous assemblage of her family relatives and other friends.  The services were conducted by Rev. W.P. Shrom the pastor of the First Presbyterian church, in which she had worshipped from childhood.  Mrs. Kimball was the eldest daughter of Hon. Jacob Glessner, of this city, and the wife of Mr. Thomas S. Kimball, formerly of Canton, Ohio.  She was born on the 27th. day of April, 1841.  She received here education at the Female Seminary in Putnam, of which she was a graduate.  Her marriage to Mr. Kimball took place at the residence of her parents, in this city, on the 28th. day of May, 1863.  Her husband being engaged in business for several years past in New York City, she had joined him there but a few weeks since, after a happy visit to her family home.  Her fatal illness was of some ten days' duration, and was the consequence of a cold, which developed jaundice, and terminated in paralysis of the brain.  Although she had severe paroxysms of suffering, she was perfectly conscious until the great change came on, and her last moments were as tranquil as the sleep of an innocent babe.  Her kind husband and her affectionate mother (the latter summoned by telegraph the Sunday preceding) were present, and every care and attention were most lovingly given;  but her spirit was called and taken by the Good Creator who had sent it into this world, and it was ready for the call.  Indeed there was no time of her life when she could have been said not to be prepared;  for goodness was the most prominent feature of her existence, and she manifested it in every possible way;  in the Presbyterian church, in which she was a communicant;  in society, of which she was a most agreeable, joyous and welcome member;  at the family hearth, where her cheerfulness and warm heartedness were a constant blessing;  and, too, in many a lowly cottage, where her thoughtful charities will be gratefully remembered.  Her life, although comparatively short, was one of continual usefulness, and doing good;  and, we are pleased to add, also of happiness and pleasure to herself and all her friends, in childhood, girlhood and womanhood.  As a daughter and a wife, she was the light and the life of her parents' and her own households, and all her friends felt gladness in her presence and delight in her countenance.  Truly applicable to her was Wordsworth's description: -- <<verse omitted>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  10 April 1875]

King, Anna -- The funeral of Miss Anna King will take place from the residence of her father, on West Fourth Street, to-morrow.  [Ohio Liberal:  07 May 1879]

King, Anna -- Anna King was born in Chesterville, Morrow County, Ohio, April 25, 1853, and died in Mansfield, Richland County, Ohio, May 6, 1879.  From her earliest years she manifested many most admirable qualities.  hers was one of those rare transparent natures which knows no deceit, no disguises.  She retained during her whole life, in an unusual degree, that absolute sincerity in social relations which usually, for the most part, ceases with childhood.  Her father and mother were her most confidential friends.  From them she concealed nothing.  With the simplicity of a girl of thirteen she continued during her whole life to confide to them everything in which she had a decided interest.  Nothing which either saddened or gladdened her heart long remained unknown to them.  This peculiarity of her character, known best by the members of her family, was also noticeable to all her friends.  For three years she was a student of the Ohio Wesleyan Female College, where she won the unreserved esteem and affection of all her instructors and classmates.  The intelligence of her death will bring sadness to many who knew and loved her during those three happy years.  Always the subject of decided religious convictions, she grew up with habits of prayer and attendance upon divine service, and of attention to many duties which belong to a Christian life.  She did not make an open profession of religion until the 20th. of February, 1876, when she publicly professed faith in Jesus Christ, and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church.  She greatly prized the church, and was always ready to render cheerful service in endeavoring to promote its interests.  She was a member of the Sabbath-school from the time she was taken to the infant class until her death.  Her religious life was in its outward manifestation, such as was only possible to one of her temperament;  it was quite and undemonstrative.  Her last sickness was brief continuing but little more than one week.  For two days before her death she was delirious most of the time, but during brief lucid intervals she spoke of her confidence in the Savior, saying, "I am trusting";  "I am willing to go if it is His will."  [Ohio Liberal:  07 May 1879]

Hess, of Des Moines, are nieces… During the World war, she knit endlessly for the khakiclad soldier boys—just as she had toiled 60 years ago for the “boys in blue,” who fairly worshipped her husband; and as she had labored patriotically and zealously for the Spanish American war veterans and the heroes of the Mexican War, 70 years and more ago. Born in Ohio Mrs. Jane (Clark) Kirkwood was the daughter of Icabod Clark and Isabel McQuade, who were married in Washington county, Pennsylvania, in 1812. She was born Sept. 1, 1821, in Richland county, Ohio. Soon after her parents’ marriage, they removed to Richland county, Ohio and there her father resided until he died, at 63, save when he served in the war of 1812. After Mr. Clark’s death, in 1854, the widow removed to Johnson county and settled here, passing away at the age of 76 in Iowa City. Ten children were born to the Clarks, the only surviving one in 1821 having been Mrs. Jane Kirkwood. Jane, whose death is herein recorded, was educated in Richland county, Ohio, and attended the seminary at Granville. She taught school a few summers in her old home county. On December 27, 1843, she wed Samuel J. Kirkwood, then a young man of 30, just beginning the practice of law in Mansfield, Ohio. Those two pioneers came to Iowa City in 1855. Nine years later they erected the historic mansion wherein she resided until her last days. She was a sister of State Senator Ezekiel Clark and Mrs. L. C. Jewett, and Mrs. E. W. Lucas, of Iowa City, now dead. In the course of her reminiscences, she was wont to speak of one of the earliest post-nuptial household duties, the weaving of a carpet with her own hands, the wool for which she had spun and dyed. Mrs. Kirkwood joined the Methodist church soon after her marriage, and she remained a consistent, faithful, and valued member of that organization nearly 78 years… Submitted by Jean [extracted from The Iowa City Press Citizen, April 28, 1921, page 1]

Kirkwood, Samuel J. -- Our community will be pained to learn of the death of ex-Governor Samuel J. Kirkwood, which occurred at his home in Iowa City, Iowa, Saturday.  Governor Kirkwood's father came to this county from Maryland when the deceased was a mere child, and consequently his boyhood and early manhood was passed in this community.  His father settled near Newville, then a thriving little hamlet, where his gifted son went to school and afterwards taught school.  When quite a young man, Samuel Kirkwood came to Mansfield, studied law, was admitted to the bar and became the law partner of Judge T.W. Bartley.  He served as Prosecuting Attorney, and was a prominent member of the Constitutional Convention that framed the present State Constitution, and was one of its very last surviving members.  All those years he was a member of the Democratic party, and it was ever ready to thrust honors upon him, for he was always popular with the masses.  Upon the passage of the Kansas and Nebraska bill he took issue with his party, became a strong opponent of the extension of slavery in the territories that were just budding into statehood, and soon thereafter moved to the new state of Iowa, which was ever afterward his home.  When a resident of Ohio Mr. Kirkwood took a deep interest in our public school system, and he made his first campaign in Iowa on this very vital question in a new state.  He was successful in so molding public option as to give his adopted state an advanced system of public instruction, and was known as the "Father of the Public Schools of Iowa".  The citizens of Iowa were not slow in finding out his great ability for public affairs, nor was his rapid rise to eminence a surprise to his old Mansfield friends.  He served two terms as Governor of Iowa, was its war Governor;  two or three terms as U.S. Senator, and was a member of President Garfield's cabinet, all of which positions he served with singular ability and fidelity.  Honest, plain Sam Kirkwood, was a power before a jury or on the hustings.  His very plainness and simplicity of speech made him a most forceful speaker and he was skilled in the logic that convinces the masses, if not so learned in the more cultured logic of the school.  He perhaps never set logic on fire, but he always made it very hot for his opponents.  He will be mourned by his state and the entire country as well.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  08 September 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 17]  Note:  An additional article regarding Samuel J. Kirkwood appears in the 15 September 1894 issue of the Richland Shield & Banner (p. 3) as re-printed from the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette.  Researchers may wish to contact the Sherman Room at the Mansfield/Richland Co.

Kirkwood, Samuel Jordan -- THE HONORED WAR GOVERNOR PASSES AWAY. Full of Years, the Love of all Iowans and the Respect of the Nation, He peacefully Reposes at his Iowa City Home. At 1:15 o'clock Saturday afternoon the end of all earthy things came to a man, than whom none in all Iowa's history will be remembered with more affection, admiration and respect - ex-Gov. S. J. Kirkwood. The grand old man, for he was one of the grandest old men in all the nation, had been weakening gradually, without any particular disease. He did not take to his bed finally till the first of the week, but when he did, dissolution came quickly, though he retained his consciousness to the last. Samuel Jordan Kirkwood, fifth governor of the state of Iowa, was born in the county of Hartford, Md., December 13, 1813, and was subsequently in the 81st year of his age. In his early years he taught Latin in a private school in the city of Washington. In early manhood he removed to Mansfield, Ohio, where he entered upon the practice of law. In 1851, he was a member of the convention which drafted the present constitution of the state of Ohio, and took a leading part in the convention. In 1853, Mr. Kirkwood removed to Iowa, settling at Iowa City, then the capital of the state, which has been his home ever since. In the following year at the close of a fierce contest, he was elected to the senate of the state. In that body his natural leadership was promptly and willingly acknowledged. When the time came to select the gubernatorial nominee in 1859, eyes seemed to turn to Kirkwood as the man for leader in that critical time. He was nominated, and canvassed the state with his rival, the then most eminent Democrat in the state, Augustus C. Dodge, a man who had often been before the people before and had never been beaten. It was a memorable campaign. Kirkwood had a little more than 3,000 majority. His election at that time was about as providential as that of Abraham Lincoln a year later. Looking back over the history of years, one is at a loss to think where could have been found another citizen of the state who could so well have filled the office of governor when the civil war broke upon us, as Samuel J. Kirkwood. He was emphatically the man for the place. The people had confidence in him. They believed he would do the best thing to be done. His rugged honesty, his strong common sense, were of important service to Iowa and the country at that important epoch. In answer to his appeals forty-nine regiments and four batteries of volunteers entered the service from our state. He was, moreover, constantly mindful of the interests of the men in the field, taking care to the extent of his authority, and even beyond, that their wants were attended to. Neither were the state's domestic affairs overlooked. His recommendations to the legislature show the statesmanlike grasp of his mind; while his general intercourse with the other officials, civil and military, was of such a character as to make it feel who came in contact with him that the master was there. Yet never was he self-asserting. His high office, while its duties were never neglected, was not by him paraded. It was not necessary it should be done in order to impress people that a man of more than usual power was governor of Iowa when he was at the helm. Upon his retirement from the governorship his friends were desirous of electing him to the senate and he received a generous support in the body which chose Senator Harlan for the third time, and Governor Kirkwood was chosen to fill an unexpired term in that body. After its expiration, he remained in retirement until in 1875 the Republican state convention without his knowledge called upon him again to lead the party. He accepted with reluctance, but made a strong canvass and was chosen by a larger majority than he had been at either of his former elections. The day before he was inaugurated he received the Republican caucus nomination for the United Sates senate as successor to Judge Wright, and was elected shortly afterward. On the first day of February, 1877, he resigned the office of governor, and on the fourth day of the following month re-entered the senate. Here he remained until invited by President Garfield to a seat in his cabinet, which he accepted. After the death of the president, he remained in office only a few months; when he retired, this time finally. The deceased was married while yet in Ohio to a sister of Hon. Ezekiel Clark, who also became a resident of Iowa City. Governor Kirkwood was very lovable to his private relations, being highly esteemed by all who were privileged to know him personally. The state, in his death, parts with one who did much to adorn the best period of its history, and his family, friends and neighbors, one estimable in every way and highly cherished by them all.  Submitted by Jean and Faye.  [Davenport Tribune (Davenport, Iowa):  05 September 1894]

Kistler, Abigail George -- Born at Loydsville, Belmont county, O., Nov. 28, 1811.  Died at Mansfield, Aug. 28, 1897, Abigail George Kistler.  Eighty-five years and nine months she lived, and labored, and loved on the earth, and full of years she has passed away.   Her parents were pioneers and a few months after her birth they moved into Knox County, O., and settled near Fredericktown.  Her father's sons and daughters were eight in number, and with the exception of her youngest sister, who died some years ago at the age of 60, all have survived her.  The longevity of the family has been remarkable.  Her eldest brother is in his 87th. year.  Another brother in his 84th. year;  her sister, Mrs. Levi Zimmerman, in her 82d. year.  A pioneer family in another respect, four of her five living brothers reside on the Pacific coast and the eldest in Iowa.  Westward moved the star of empire, westward went the sons of Ohio's pioneers.  Abigail was married to John Kistler who became a soldier of the Union and a captain in Col. Solomon Meredith's regiment of Indiana volunteers.  With him she went to the front -- when the regiment was at Fortress Monroe.  Years ago he passed away and since in large measure she has made her home with Mr. & Mrs. Zimmerman in Mansfield.  She was a lovely and lovable woman, growing old gracefully and well.  For many years deafness, increasing with age, deprived her of the enjoyment of general conversation, but in the home circle the want of hearing was compensated by loving companionship.  Born when Ohio was on the frontier, she has lived to see her native state a grand commonwealth.  How much she has lived -- through the war of 1812, hid away by her mother in a cave when the savage threatened the home -- actively interested in the great struggle -- the civil war.  She has devoted her last years to reading, study and the quiet of the home.  Now she has passed beyond the borders, across the river, and has entered into rest.  Funeral Monday at 3 p.m. from the home, 288 West Fourth Street, bur burial private.  [Semi-Weekly News:  31 August 1897, vol. 13, No. 70]

Kline, Earl

Kline, George -- George Kline is Dead!  On last Sunday evening about 5 o'clock our citizens were startled by the report that George Kline, the Proprietor of the Kline Hotel, was dead.  Many immediately repaired thither, and found the sad intelligence true.  So unexpected was this event, that many could not be convinced without actually viewing the corpse.  Mr. Kline was in usual health, until about Sabbath noon, when he had symptoms of congestion about his breast.  Dr. McMillin was called, and administered some medicine.  He was walking about, said he felt some better, but complained of severe pain in the extreme points of his shoulders, and said he would lie down on the lounge to rest.  The Dr. stopped out a moment, and upon his return a moment after, thought he had dropped to sleep, but soon after discovered that Mr. Kline was dead.  His face was discolored and it was evident apoplexy had done its work.  A battery was applied to the body, but all efforts to restore life were in vain.  Mr. Kline was no more.  He came here from Lebanon County, Pa., and first worked as a carpenter upon the time of the C.C.C. & I. R.R. afterwards took the Junction Hotel, retaining it all through the war, doing a very fine business, and making considerable money by it.  He afterwards purchased the Beverstock Hotel keeping an excellent Hotel and surrounding himself with many friends.  In early life he connected himself with the Lutheran Church but when he first came here there was no congregation here, and when the present congregation was organized, he frequently spoke of attaching himself to it, but like many others procrastinated from time to time.  He was also a member of the Masonic Order, which took charge of his remains.  His funeral took place on Tuesday, which was very largely attended.  Mr. Kline was aged about forty eight years, just in the very prime of life -- in good health, and will be much missed by his friends.  He was uniformly one of our special friends -- one of that kind that is ever the same, no matter when or where the occasion or the circumstances, he was the same constant, true friend.  These qualities specially endeared him to us, and we shall greatly feel his loss.  << Resolutions of respect from the Shelby Lodge, No. 350, F. & A.M. omitted here >>  [Shelby Independent News:  16 April 1874, Vol. 6, No. 25]

Kline, Henry -- Henry Kline, one of the old pioneers of this county died Wednesday, April 29th., his age being 80 years, 6 months and 9 days.  He was one of the oldest settlers of this county.  He was born in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, October 20th., 1804, came to Richland County, Ohio, in 1822, and was married to Mary Whisler, on the 20th. day of August, 1826 and after marriage lived one year on the old state road near Mansfield, then purchased a farm in Franklin Township and moved on it, where he spent the remainder of his days, with the exception of one year prior to his death, when he removed to Mansfield.  He was a member of the Mennonite Church for over 40 years, a devoted Christian, a kind and affectionate husband and father, a good neighbor and highly respected by all who knew him.  His companion departed this life only six weeks prior to his departure, he being only 17 days her senior.  Their remains were interred in the Clay graveyard six miles north of Mansfield.  --  [Mansfield Herald:  07 May 1885, Vol. 35, No. 25]
