Moon, Edward -- Edward Moon, a young man 18 years of age, met with a very sudden death Thursday morning about 10:30 o'clock while plowing on the Dr. Jones farm three miles north of the city.  For the past four years he has been working for W.S. Etzwiler, the tenant on the Jones farm, Mr. Etzwiler having taken Moon from the Ashland County Infirmary and the young man has been with him ever since.  Moon was engaged in plowing in one of the fields of the farm.  He was sitting on a sulky plow which was pulled by three horses.  A few minutes before the fatality occurred Mr. Etzwiler had been in the field working near Moon but had gone to the house for something.  While he was gone the accident occurred.  While the horses were turning at a corner of the field, they became tangled up and one of the animals fell on top of Moo.  The horses all fell and were unable to get up until a man named Crall, who lives near, saw the trouble and came to the rescue.  It seems that Moon was gasping when Crall arrived and when Etzwiler arrived a little later the unfortunate young man was dead.  The body was removed to the farm house.  Mr. Etzwiler came into the city Thursday afternoon and informed the infirmary directors of the death, and the Ashland County directors were in turn notified.  Mr. Etzwiler does not know whether or not the young man has relatives living.  It is thought that Moon was in the Ashland County infirmary several years before Etzwiler took him.  [Semi-Weekly News:  28 May 1897, Vol. 13, No. 43]

Morehead, Rebecca -- A Sketch of a Settler of 1816.  Mrs. Rebecca Morehead, wife of Jedediah Morehead, departed this life, January 12th., 1874, aged about seventy years.  Her funeral took place on the 13th., attended by her children and friends.  Services were conducted by Rev. D.I. Foust.  She left nine children, an aged husband, and many neighbors and friends to mourn her departure.  She was a member of the Dunkard Church for several years, though for a few years past she could not attend on account of age and feeble health, and died in the triumph of a living faith in her Savior desiring, as she said, to depart and be with Him.  Mother Morehead was born near Old Town on the Potomac, in West Virginia, in 1803, moved to Richland County, Ohio, in 1816, and was married April 7th., 1822, living with her husband nearly fifty-two years, and upon the farm where she died over forty years.  She was a kind and affectionate mother to her children and to her husband a faithful wife.  Many a weary hungry traveler did she feed, and even an Indian was not turned from her door without refreshment when asked. -- C.S.M.  [Shelby Independent News:  05 February 1874, Vol. 6, No. 15]

Morgan's sudden death at his home here April 5 caused much gloom to pervade the village.  He ate a hearty breakfast and immediately a numb sensation began to creep over him.  He spoke a few words and then sank into a deep lethargy which ended in death's eternal sleep in the afternoon, the victim of apoplexy.  Interment was Wednesday afternoon in Shauck's Cemetery, four miles south of here.  Services were held at the church there, the Rev. Mr. Amsbaugh delivering a discourse.  The deceased was aged 66 years, 9 months and 28 days, having been born June 15, 1830, in Morrow County.  Mr. Morgan was the ideal type of physical manhood, weighing 240 pounds and he was of symmetrical proportions and his alert step and the bright glow of health that suffused his face indicated that he would be the last one here to feel death's sting.  His wife and a daughter, Mrs. John Held, of Johnsville, survive him.  He was highly esteemed for his genial and generous impulses and the hearts of his many friends beat responsive to the bitter anguish that filled the hearts of his kindred when he was laid away in the eternal night of the grave.  [Semi-Weekly News:  13 April 1897, Vol. 13, No. 30]

Moritz, S.K. (Morrow) -- Died, At the Aveline House, Fort Wayne, Indiana, on the 7th. of Aug., 1867 in the 35th. year of her age, Mrs. S.K. Moritz, wife of Mr. John Moritz, one of the above named house.  The deceased was a native of Pennsylvania, born at Holidaysburg, Blair County, and was a sister of the present Prothonotary of that county, A.S. Morrow, Esq.;  there also she married the husband who now mourns her loss;  and came with him to Greensburg, Westmoreland County, where Mr. M. was extensively known as the Proprietor of one of the hotels of that place.  Coming thence to Crestline, Ohio, he will be remembered by many of the traveling public as the gentlemanly Proprietor of "The Crestline House", which he kept for 12 or 14 years.  Here the deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church, honored and respected for her consistent life.  Removing thence, not long since, to Fort Wayne, her husband became there one of the Proprietors of the "Aveline House";  and it was there that cloud rose suddenly over her home which has wrapped it in such deep gloom.  The death of Mrs. Moritz was sudden and unexpected;  yet a disease of the heart, had long afflicted her, and she felt admonished by it to remember that at an hour when she looked not for him the messenger might come.   And, in addition, symptoms of hemorrhage of the lungs had recently appeared;  and it was from the latter disease her death at last ensued.  Yet for the last several weeks she had felt more than usually well;  and on the day of her death had given her wonted oversight to her household, with more than ordinary cheerfulness, and comfort to herself.  After tea, on that day, she had lingered at the table in a pleasant talk with her husband and friends.  When he withdrew to the office she went up, as usual, to her room.  There she was almost, immediately seized with a severe and distressing cough.  Those present became alarmed and called her husband, who was at her side in a moment or two.  As he came in she sat at the window, using her fan, and breathing with great difficulty.  Looking up at her husband as he came to the chair "I must die", she said;  then leaning back in the chair, five minutes did not pass till her spirit had fled;  called as we doubt not to "depart and be with Christ", which is far better.   The deceased was a woman of no ordinary excellence;  prudent, de____ and modest;  a kind and sympathizing friend -- a tender and loving mother, a wife whose affectionate cheerfulness, and pleasant companionship, made her the idol of her husband, she possessed moreover, and above all, a piety that was at once controlling, consistent, and unostentatious.  Though her husband's position ever kept both himself and her in public life, yet she ever preserved the character, the manners, and the delicate modesty of a true lady.  She was indeed one of those of whom Lemuel says "she openeth her mouth with wisdom, and in her tongue is the law of kindness.  She looketh well to the ways of the household, and enter not the bread of idleness.  Her children arise up and call her blessed;  her husband also, and he praiseth her."  Besides her _____ husband, she leaves an interesting child, a son of six years, and also a large circle of friends to mourn her loss.  Her remains, which were brought to Crestline for interment by the side of a child, and other relatives in the family burying ground, were accompanied to the grave by a large number of sympathizing friends who spoke their regard for her in the earnestness and tears with which they ____ to the brief words of him who had been for many years.  -- Her Pastor, Crestline, O., Aug. 20, 1867.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  28 August 1867, Vol. XXVII, No. 14]
