Lightcap, Samuel S. -- Unable to longer bear his troubles upon earth he took his own life.  This is the cause which led to the suicide of Samuel S. Lightcap, which startled the southwestern portion of the city yesterday.  The deceased is well-known in the city as an auctioneer and came into prominence in the county shortly after the death of the late Edward Kincaid.  Mr. Lightcap, who resided with his son-in-law, F.E. Delancy, on West Blanche St., had not been feeling well for a long time.  For some days he had not appeared regularly at his meals and was in the habit of strolling away by himself at all hours of the day and night.  His actions during the 48 hours preceding his death are indisputable evidence that he intended to do away with himself, and had made up his mind upon that point.  On Saturday he was down street and paid up the dues on his insurance in the Knights of Honor lodge, of which he had been a member for years.  At the time of the transaction he remarked to a friend:  "My troubles are more than I can stand and I am not going to trouble any one much longer."  He appeared to be very much down-hearted, much more so, in fact, than usual.  On Saturday afternoon Mr. Lightcap left the house of his son-in-law and wandered away a half mile to the south-west.  Several Italians who were at work in a field witnessed the peculiar movements of the man who appeared to be hunting for a certain spot.  Catching sight of the laborers, he wheeled and returned to his home.  The relatives of the deceased had no intimation of the awful tragedy so soon to be enacted.  Mr. Lightcap retired as usual on Saturday night.  About 2 o'clock on Sunday morning several of the residents on Blanche Street heard the report of a revolver, but no one made an investigation.    On Sunday morning the family rose late and Mr. Lightcap failed to appear at breakfast as on many previous occasions.  Having occasion to enter her father's room after dinner Mrs. Delancy saw his hat and coat lying upon a chair.  Some $25, all the money the man had, was upon the table.  This alarmed Mrs. Delancy, and her husband, together with a neighbor, Wm. Myers, began a search for the missing man.  In the hollow bordering upon Ritter's Run and commonly known as "Ritter's hollow" he was found lying under a large tree.  The man was lying on his right side with his head resting upon his right arm.  In front of his body lay the weapon with which he had done the deed, a common, very cheap 32-caliber revolver.  One chamber was exploded.  The ball entered the right side of the head just above the ear and came out at the opposite side.  Blood and brains were oozing from the wound.  Coroner Maglott was notified and Undertaker James A. Niman appeared and had the body conveyed to the house on Blanche Street.  S.S. Lightcap, who is a brother of Jacob Lightcap, of South Adams Street, came to this city from Big Prairie some 20 years ago, and for a number of years resided in the old Fourth Ward.  He is the father of four children by his first wife.  About a year since, while residing on South Adams Street, Mr. Lightcap had trouble with his second wife.  Later they broke up house-keeping and Mrs. L. took rooms over Niman's Undertaking establishment on North Main Street, where she is living at present.  The husband went to live with his daughter and grew very despondent as time went by.  The deceased was about 53 years of age.  Funeral services will be held at the house tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock (standard time).  The remains will be taken to Big Prairie, his former home, for interment at 10:40 o'clock.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 September 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 15]

Lindegger, Johnny -- Johnny Lindegger, an 11-Year-Old Boy, drowned in Painter's Pond -- The first drowning case of the season occurred last night at Painter's Pond.  Christian Marks, of East Fourth street, went out to the pond after dusk to take a swim and his nephew, Johnny Lindegger, went with him. Johnny was the 11 year-old son of Adolph Lindegger, a baker employed by H. Berndt, and who lives on East Fourth near Blecker.  Marks left the boy on the bank to watch his clothes while he went in swimming but when he out only Johnn's clothing was to be found. The missing boy's name was called several times without avail whereupon it was concluded that he ventured into the water although no one had seen him do so. By this time several others arrived and joined in the search. John Hebler, while wading in water about breast deep touched the body with his feet and diving down brought up the lifeless remains. The boy could not swim and it was probable that when he got beyond his depth he strangled and sank to the bottom. A call was sent in to the police headquarters about 9 o'clock. Officers Baxter and Heiser got a rig at the fire department and went out to the pond at once and they brought the body to town.  The sad affair was a severe shock to the boy's uncle who broke down when the lifeless form of the boy was found and carried ashore. It was greater shock to the parents, as Johnny was a bright little fellow and their eldest. The funeral occurred this afternoon.  Submitted by Gary.  [Mansfield News Journal:  15 July 1893]

Linder, F.C. -- A number of Mansfielders who were at Sandusky Sunday saw a tragedy enacted at Johnson's island which was nothing less than a case of criminal carelessness.  A double balloon ascension was about to take place, a man and a woman being the balloonists, and the signal to start was to be given by firing a revolver.  The man who held the revolver, instead of firing into the ground or up in the air threw his arm over his shoulder and discharged the weapon.  The ball struck F.C. Linder, who was standing just back of him, well up on the breast and killed him instantly, the ball probably taking a downward course to the heart.  Mr. Linder was a resident of Chicago Junction, having been engaged in the grocery business there.  He was well known in this city.  The man who did the shooting was arrested.  Arthur Ledger, the man who did the shooting, is a resident of Toledo and the revolver he used was a 38 caliber.  Mr. Linder's wife and daughter were with him when the tragedy occurred.  The remains were taken to Chicago Junction Monday.  [Semi-Weekly News: 10 August 1897, Vol. 13, No. 64]

Little, George -- SUICIDE AT BELLVILLE – On Monday morning the residents of Bellville were startled by the announcement that George Little, of the firm of Cunningham & Little, lumber and coal dealers, had committed suicide by shooting himself.  During the forenoon the LIBERAL interviews a resident of Bellville by telephone and learned the particulars of the suicide as follows:  For some days previous to his rash act, Mr. Little seemed to be greatly troubled and worried over a comparatively slight financial embarrassment in the way of unpaid bills.  About seven o’clock, Monday morning, Mr. Little was walking down street with Postmaster Lafferty to whom he complained of feeling unwell and stated that he had felt out of sorts for several days.  A few minutes after this conversation he walked into the unfinished store room of George Bell, next door to the post office, and there placing the muzzle of a 32-calibur revolver against his right temple, he pulled the trigger and sent the bullet crashing into his head.  No one was in the room at the time, and shortly after, persons who passed hard groans issuing from the wounded man.  The room was entered and Mr. Little was found lying in a pool of blood, and unconscious.  Medical assistance was summoned, but a glance sufficed to show that the bullet had effected its deadly work.  He lay in a stupor during the day and death resulted during the evening.  That the deceased had contemplated self-murder for some days is evident, as he had purchased the revolver on the preceding Thursday.  Mr. Little was a man highly esteemed in the community in which he lived, and the act can only be attributed to a temporary aberration of the mind occasioned by the cause above stated.  The deceased was about forty-two years of age and leaves a wife but no children.   --  [Ohio Liberal:  02 January 1884]
