Sampsel, Dr. I.S. -- In the sudden death of Dr. I.S. Sampsel at his late home in Bellville, O., on the morning of Feb. 21st., we recognize the hand of God.  The entrance and exit of our earthly life is from Him who holds our destiny.  The subject of this brief sketch was born April 9, 1825, in Columbiana County, Ohio.  In his boyhood he showed a marked tendency for the medical profession, as a large family connection of the same name in Ashland, Delaware, and elsewhere have done.  In 1845 he married Miss E. Whiteleather, who died in 1863, leaving six children.  Three of them have passed over the river, Mrs. Irene Campbell of Caledonia, O., only three weeks before her father.  The others, H.W. of Bellville, Mrs. W.W. Burt of Caledonia, and Miss Verda of Kankakee, Ill., were at the funeral.  He married Miss Elizabeth Miller on March 16, 1865.  Three sons, Gail, Ward and Jesse and one daughter, Della, all living, were the result of this union.  The eldest recently of Adelbert College, Cleveland, having the medical profession in view.  For more than forty years Dr. Sampsel has had an extended practice in Marion, Morrow and Richland counties, the last 17 years in Bellville.  While the autopsy showed the stomach to be the only sound vital organ, death must have been almost instantaneous from rupture of the heart.  The funeral services at his late residence, corner of Markey and Ogle streets, though at the early hour of 9:30 a.m., Feb. 24th. was attended by a very large concourse of people.  After these impressive services by Revs. John Kelly and A. Philpot many went with the relatives to Lexington, the place of burial.  Although past what might be termed the summit of life, being called away at the age of 63 years, 9 months and 12 days, yet he was full of hope.  [Bellville Star:  21 March 1889]

Sampsell, Dr. I.S.  -- Dr. I.S. Sampsell died at his home in Bellville last night of heart disease at the age of 62 years.  The deceased has been ailing for some time with lung trouble, but was able to be about a portion of the time.  No arrangements have as yet been made for the funeral.  Dr. Sampsell was one of the best known physicians throughout the county and leaves a wife, four sons and two daughters to mourn his loss.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  23 February 1889, Vol. LXXI, No. 40]

Sampsell, Dr. I.S. -- Bellville.  The saying that death loves a shining mark was verified when on Thursday morning it claimed as its victim Dr. I.S. Sampsell one of our highly respected citizens.  The doctor had been ailing for a week past but considered his ailment a lung trouble which seemed to be yielding to treatment.  On Wednesday he seemed much better.  On Thursday he arose about 7 o'clock and having dressed was setting by the fire when he called out that he had a dreadful pain in his side.  A messenger was dispatched for Dr. Austin, who lives in an adjoining property, but before he could arrive, Dr. Sampsell was dead.  When the report of his death was circulated it was hard to make people believe it.  The family have the sympathy of the entire community.  The funeral took place from his late residence at the corner of Markey and Ogle Streets at 9:30 a.m., on Sunday.  Interment at the Lexington Cemetery.  The services were conducted by Revs. Kelly and Philpot.  An autopsy established the fact that he had died of heart disease.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 March 1889, Vol. LXXI, No. 41]

Sampsell, Dr. I.S. -- Bellville.  Dr. I.S. Sampsell died very suddenly on Thursday morning at his home on Markey Street.  He had been in poor health for the past year but had been growing worse the past few weeks, but had been able to be around the house.  Thursday morning he was stricken with a severe pain in the stomach and immediately sent for Dr. Austin, but lived only a few minutes.  The funeral took place on Sunday at 9:30 a.m., Rev. John Kelly officiating.  The remains were taken to Lexington for interment.  Among the relatives from a distance who attended the funeral were Dr. W.R. Hoops, of New Haven, Ind., Dr. Sampsell and Mrs. L. Campbell, of Ashland, Mrs. W.W. Burt, of Caledonia.  A more extended obituary will appear in the next issue of the STAR.  --  [Bellville Star:  28 February 1889, Vol. 12, No. 22]

Sams, Virgil -- The Cleveland Plain Dealer of Tuesday morning contains the following concerning an accident and death of Virgil Sams, a former Plymouth boy, who was last engaged here in laying brick at the time the public square was paved.  "The heroic effort of one workman to save the life of another resulted in death of both yesterday afternoon, when they plunged seventy-five feet from the top of the new high level bridge arches spanning Merwin Ave. N.W.  Thousands of pedestrians crossing Superior viaduct saw the accident, which brought to five the toll of deaths as result of accidents on the new high level bridge.  The dead men are Virgil Sams, 24, 1545 E. 17th. St., and William Brown, 27, 2801 Church Ave. N.W.  Both were workers on reinforced concrete construction.  According to the police and witnesses the men were working on false work of piers 7 and 8, which span Merwin Ave. and the Baltimore & Ohio railroad tracks.  Without warning a panel collapsed, striking Brown and causing him to stagger backward.  Seeing his fellow workman about to fall from the bridge, Sams grabbed Brown by the arm.  Brown staggered off the bridge and carried Sams along with him.  Other workmen employed by the Hunkin-Conkey Co., builders of the bridge, found the mangled forms lying on a pile of timbers just a few feet east of Merwin Ave.  Weber & Hoesch's ambulance took the men to Lutheran Hospital where physicians could find no signs of life.  The bodies later were removed to Weber & Hoesch's undertaking rooms, 4160 Lorain Ave.  The death of her husband leaves Mrs. Sams in need of assistance.  Within a few days she will receive a visit from the stork.  She already has a 2-year old daughter.  Brown came to Cleveland last Saturday from his home, 3411 Crystal St., Mt. Union, Pa."  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  25 September 1915, Vol. 62, No. 44]

Sargeant, George H.

Sargent, George H. -- We are called upon to chronicle this week the sad and early death of Geo. H. Sargent, son of Mrs. Nancy Sargent of this place of the firm of Madden & Sargent, at Urbana, o., on the evening of the 12th. inst.  The circumstances attending it are briefly as follows:  For the past year his health seemed worse than usual, although always poor;  and more than all else, it is supposed that the severe sun-stroke that he received in the army affected his brain, and caused his thoughts to turn into despondent and melancholy channels.  At any rate this has been his condition for several months past but there was nothing to lead his nearest friends to suppose that his mind was "turned" until the past week, and nothing definite until last Saturday.  Upon that day he seemed quite beside himself all day, and among other things imagined his best friends to be his worst enemies.  He was consequently very difficult to manage.  From that time arrangements were being quietly made to have him removed Monday or Tuesday to a proper place for treatment;  but Sunday evening, to the great surprise of all his circle of friends, he died by his own hand.  O that day at 11 o'clock, he upon coming out of the book store, met a hardware clerk, of whom he at once purchased the revolver to commit the fatal deed.  At 2 o'clock P.M., he called upon the young lady to whom he was to have been married in January, where he remained all the time in more or less agitation until about 6 o'clock P.M.  At that time the father of the young lady began pleading with Barry "to unbosom himself to him, and tell him what was the matter."  Harry consented to do so if he would step outside.  After a great deal of coaxing Harry handed the old gentleman a note already prepared and addressed to him, and requested him "to read that".  He returned to the house to read the note, and Harry passed on down the street, and it is supposed went at once to the store and shot himself.  The note he undoubtedly intended should explain all, but it was found to be merely the creation of a disordered mind.  Steps were at once taken to find Harry, but without success until the next morning, when the clerk who was opening out the store, discovered him in a room over the store, lying on the floor cold and dead, fully dressed with the weapon that done the deed on the floor at his feet.  His troubles, whatever they were, were purely imaginary, as everything excepting his poor diseased brain, was in the very nicest and most desirable condition;  abundance of warm friends and no enemies, a betrothed that almost worshipped him, and a good paying business that was increasing his worldly goods quite rapidly.  But all these blessings were as naught to him.  An inquest was held at once, and the Coroner's Jury returned a verdict of death from a pistol shot by his own hand in a fit of temporary insanity.  Thus has passed from a large circle of loving relatives and friends, a young man of sterling integrity, best habits and purest principles.  [The facts, as above stated, are from Col. C.J. Madden, Mr. Sargent's business partner.  -- Ed., Bellville Weekly]  [Richland Shield & Banner:  25 December 1875]

Sargent, Hulbert L. -- Once again the people of Bellville have been called upon to pay their last respects to one whose entire life was associated with this place.  Hulbert L. Sargent died June 28, the funeral taking place from the home of his sister, Mrs. S.A. Brollier on last Sabbath at 2 o'clock.  The high regard in which the deceased and also the family is held with manifested at the time of the funeral by the very large audience that was in attendance.  Many of those present having known the deceased during his entire life, they having played together in childhood and since that time have been as intimately associated as their different business vocations would permit.  He was a man of good business abilities, and met with good success in all his business enterprises.  He was a liberal and kind brother, and was always ready to assist when help was needed.  He was a man who never made any unnecessary display but quietly and in a strait forward business way attended to all his affairs so as to demand the respect of all.  when taken sick he was engaged in a mining enterprise in Colorado.  He left his home in the early spring and went to the mine expecting to remain some time, but was soon smitten down by sickness from which he found no relief until death released him, the malady being a tumor formation with a slight softening of the brain around the tumor.  His sufferings were intense during all his sickness.  After reaching his home every care and attention was given to relieve his suffering but all efforts were of no avail and last Thursday morning as the day quietly was relieving the night watch, just so quietly our brother, friend and neighbor passed away.  Thus ended another active business life.  --  [Bellville Star:  05 July 1888, Vol. 11, No. 41]

Schantz, Chrissie -- Councilman Joseph Schantz and son, George, arrived in the city at one o'clock this morning with the remains of their daughter and sister who died in Detroit yesterday at the Grace Hospital.  Miss Chrissie Schantz, the deceased, was 28 years of age and was well known to all our people as a very sociable and vivacious young lady.  Just four weeks ago today she started for Detroit and the lakes on a pleasure trip with ten other companions.  The trip was a very unfortunate one for all, as they all became more or less sick and returned home separately.  About ten days ago Miss Schantz was attacked with a severe headache which terminated in malarial fever.  As her condition became worse she was taken to the Grace Hospital, where she received every possible attention from the attendants and her sister, Miss Lena, who watched by her bedside during her sickness.  When the remains were returned to this city this morning the family were prostrated with grief, as was natural.  The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock at the Catholic church, Rev. Father Magenhann officiating, after which the remains will be interred in the Catholic Cemetery.  The stricken family have the sympathy of all their friends and acquaintances in their sad bereavement.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  15 August 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 13]

Massa, Will Berno, Jerry Hagerty, Geo. A. Rhein, A.W. Smith and Jas. Birch, of this city, assisted by two members of the Cleveland Typographical Union, officiated as pallbearers.  A large concourse followed the remains to their last resting place in the Catholic cemetery.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  27 August 1892]

Schantz, Philip J. -- A telegram was received in this Monday morning, from Miss Lena Schantz, stating that her brother, Philip J. Schantz, son of ex-Councilman Jos. Schantz, of East Third Street, died at Cleveland at an early hour this morning.  The news will shock the many friends of the deceased, who was well known in this city.  Mr. Schantz's sickness and death is an exemplification of faithful servitude, which should be and, no doubt, is appreciated by his employers.  He was employed as an opertor on one of the type setting machines on the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and a short time ago it was seen that the amount of work to be done by each machine was more than one operator could do.  The operators made an effort to secure substitutes, but Mr. Schantz was unable to do so.  He was an expert operator, being able to set 25,000 ems per night, the work of three ordinary hand compositors, and worked almost night and day for 22 days in order to keep his machine going, the result being that about ten days ago he fainted while at work and had to be taken to his room, No. 60 Wood Street, where he became very sick, being attacked with intermittent or typhoid fever, which resulted in death as stated above.  His mother and sister Lena and brother George were present at the time of his death.  Mr. Schantz was born in this city about 25 years ago.  He was an exemplary young man and had a host of warm friends here who will learn of his demise with much regret.  In 1883 the deceased entered the SHIELD office as an apprentice.  He was bright, attentive and industrious and rapidly became an excellent hand compositor.  In March, 1888, after five years of faithful service, he decided to go to a larger field and secured cases on the Cleveland Plain Dealer.  There he soon became a favorite on account of his genial manner and his ability as a printer.  When the Plain Dealer put in the Mergenthaler type setting machines, about one year ago, they showed their appreciation of Phil by giving him a machine to operate.  As in the days of his service in this office by his close application and natural ability he soon mastered the intricacies of the new machine and became one of their fastest operators.  Less than a month ago he was home visiting his parents and called at the SHIELD office to "shake hands with the boys" as was his wont when in the city.  In his work he was careful, accommodating and accurate and always enjoyed the highest regard of his employers.  Mr. Schantz's death is a particularly sad blow to his parents from the fact that a year ago last Tuesday their daughter, Miss Crissie, died at Detroit, while taking a vacation.  At that time Miss Lena was also taking a vacation and attended her sister during his sickness.  A week ago she went to Cleveland to spend a short vacation with her brothers, Phil and Joe, but again found a member of the family near death's door and nursed her brother until death overtook him.  His parents, Mr. & Mrs. Jos. Schantz, and his brothers and sisters have the sympathy of the entire community in their great bereavement.  The remains will be brought to this city this evening.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  27 August 1892]

Schwier, Samuel -- DEATH CAME SUDDENLY -- To Samuel Schwier of the Tailoring Firm of Schwier Bros. -- Samuel Schwier, one of the proprietors of Schwier Bros.' merchant tailoring establishment on East Fourth street, died rather suddenly shortly before noon Saturday. Death is supposed to have been the result of apoplexy or fatty degeneration of the heart. Mr. Schwier had not been himself for some time and his friends remarked that there was something wrong with him. This morning about 11 o'clock he went into the bar of the Brunswick hotel and had been there but a few minutes when he fell to the floor. Chief Well and Officer Charles picked him up and carried him to the store, two doors distant. He was in an unconscious condition when he was placed on the bench in the tailor shop. It was noticed that the action of the heart was becoming fainter each moment so his brother and other friends present became alarmed and telephoned for a physician. Six different physicians were telephoned for, but none could be located. Finally, somebody thought of Dr. Shipley, whose office is almost across the street. When Dr. Shipley reached the man he pronounced him dead. This was only about half an hour after he was stricken down. Coroner Bushnell arrived shortly afterward. He stated that he would probably hold an inquest this afternoon. Samuel Schwier was born Oct. 27, 1866. He leaves a father, the Rev. H. Schwier, pastor of the Believers in Christ church of South Diamond street. The mother is dead, having died quite suddenly last spring. There are also several brothers and sisters as follows.

Seaman, Samuel S. -- SAMUEL S. SEAMAN COUNCIL PRESIDENT DIES VERY SUDDENLY - The many friends of Samuel Seaman were shocked last Friday morning when they learned the sad news that he had died very suddenly Thursday night at about midnight. Mr. Seaman had been in several of the stores about town Thursday evening and remained up town until about nine o'clock talking with friends, and apparently was in his usual health when he retired. Mrs. Seaman was awakened at about midnight by his heavy breathing and at once telephoned a physician. When she returned to his bedside Mr. Seaman had passed away. The cause of death was heart failure. Mr. Seaman for many years resided on a farm north of town and a number of years ago moved to Shiloh, where he had since resided. He was elected as a member of the city council four years ago and for his second term two years ago, and was president of that body at the time of his death. He took great interest in public affairs and was a faithful and conscientious servant of the people. His loss will be keenly felt throughout the community and many expressions of sympathy and condolence have been tendered the bereaved family. Samuel S. Seaman was born in NY state April 12, 1859, and died at Shiloh, O., November 24, 1911, aged 52 years, 7 months, and 12 days. He was united in marriage with Mary J. Maring Feb. 24, 1881, to which union were born four children, two of whom preceded their father to the better world. The wife and two sons, Charles and Frank, are left to mourn the loss of a loving husband and a kind and indulgent father. The deceased is also survived by four brothers and one sister. The funeral services were held from the M. E. church Sunday morning at 10:30, conducted by Rev. Hushour, and the remains were laid to rest in Mt. Hope cemetery. Submitted by Terry W.

Searfos, Jacob -- Mr. Searfos, who recently moved to Bellville, went out to his farm in Washington Township, Saturday, to assist Truman Miller and Dora Heldenbrand, whom he had engaged to haul sawlogs for him.  While the three were loading a sugar log 19 inches in diameter and 15 feet long, located on sidling ground and in such a way that it had to be loaded up the hill on Truman Miller's farm, the hitch gave away almost as soon as the horses started to pull the log on the sled.  Mr. Searfos being right by the log, grabbed it and endeavored to hold it on the skid until they got another hitch;  but his food caught under the log and he fell backward, the log rolling up his legs to his body, when it rolled off the end of the skid down onto the lower part of his abdomen, crushing the poor man to the ground in a horrible manner.  Miller and Heldenbrand rushed to his rescue, and, with a super-human effort almost incredulous lifted the end of the heavy log while Mr. Searfos crawled out.  To their great surprise he got up, walked eight or ten feet to a pile of leaves and laid down.  They then immediately took the horse blankets and made a bed for him on the sled and brought him to his home in town.  The accident happened about 4 p.m. and is to be deplored, but no one is to blame.  Upon Mr. Searfos' arrival at home, Dr. Stofer was immediately called, who relieved the poor fellow's suffering as much as possible.  But when the reaction set in his suffering became excruciating and unbearable and remained so until death finally came to his relief, which was in about two hours after he arrived at home.  Mr. Searfos was a resident of Washington Township for over 40 years, residing on the farm on which his wife was raised and was well liked by everybody.  He was born Jan. 19, 1832, and died Feb. 1, 1902, aged 70 years and 12 days.  He was married to Esther Jane Grubb, Dec. 20, 1854.  To them were born three children - two sons and one daughter.  The oldest, Robert, died at the tender age of eight.  David R. and Mary A., now Mrs. G. Etz, and one grandchild, Miss Jessie Etz, together with his aged wife, survive him.  He was a consistent and faithful member of the Evangelical church for many years and served the church as class leader, trustee and Sunday School superintendent.  He also held several important township offices.  He served his country in the war of the rebellion and was a member of Miller Moody Post, G.A.R., when he died.  The funeral services were held at the M.E. church at 2 p.m. Monday.  Rev. E.D. Paulin of the Evangelical church assisted by Rev. E.B. Shumaker of the M.E. church, conducted the funeral services.  The obsequies were held under the auspices of Miller Moody Post, G.A.R., who attended in a body.  The remains were laid to rest in the Bellville Cemetery.  A large concourse of friends and relatives attended the funeral.  May he rest in peace.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  07 February 1902, Vol. X, No. 6]

Selby, William -- Mifflin.  That monster Death, has again entered our community, this time claiming for its victim, William Selby, who has been ailing for a number of years, but for the last few weeks he was gradually growing weaker until he reached the end of his career at 11 o'clock, Saturday evening, Feb. 27.  Death came to him very suddenly.  He had been sitting up during the evening and growing tired, he lay down and in a very short time without any farewell or warning, with a few short gasps he was dead.  Deceased was aged 57 years, 5 months and 27 days.  He leaves a wife and six children to mourn the departure of husband and father.  An autopsy was held Sunday afternoon by Dr. Harkins and assistants.  Fatty degeneration of the heart was the cause of his sudden death.  He had received treatment for a number of years for cancer of the stomach which caused him much suffering.  He was a soldier and six of his comrades acted as pall bearers.  He had recently repaired his home and made everything comfortable in life, but he was not to enjoy it long, for the Lord saw fit to give him a grander home than that made by human hands.  Funeral services were conducted Tuesday morning in the Lutheran church, of which he was a member by the Rev. Kieffer.  Interment in the Mifflin cemetery.  A host of friends and neighbors sympathize with the family in their bereavement.  [Semi-Weekly News:  09 March 1897, Vol. 13, No. 20]

Sellers, John -- Shelby, noted for its shooting affrays in which officers have figured and lost their lives, had another experience of this kind yesterday afternoon.  Officer John Sellers, stationed at the junction of the Baltimore and Ohio and the Big Four railroads about a mile and a half north of the town, was fatally shot through the stomach by tramp negro [Hollis Pate] whom he was trying to arrest.  Officer Sellers died at 5 o'clock this morning from the effects of his wound.  The dead officer leaves a wife and family.  The murderer was captured after a hard struggle and taken to the town lockup.  He narrowly escaped being lynched by the mob which gathered about the place within a few minutes.  Officer Sellers was on duty at the junction yesterday as usual.  About 3 o'clock in the afternoon he started from the depot building to make a tour of the yards.  He proceeded to inspect the Big Four side first.  In walking out on the Big Four railroad track the officer came upon two negroes.  They were ordered to move on.  One of them complied with the order but the second man refused to go, half drawing a revolver from his hip pocket in a menacing way.  Officer Sellers was about to reach for his own revolver when he remembered on the instant that he had left it at the depot in the Adams Express office.  He immediately retreated toward the depot and securing his belt containing his weapon he returned.  The negro had not moved far away and when Officer Sellers ordered him to throw up his hands and surrender he paid no attention to it.  The officer kept moving toward his man undoubtedly with the idea of getting near enough to take hold of him.  The negro and officer drew their revolvers about the same time.  Sellers recognized that there would be shooting and apparently preferred to take his chances in a hand to hand combat so with a bound he closed, being fortunate enough to seize his opponent before he could shoot.  Then ensued a wrestling match each man with his revolver in hand.  Sellers either slipped or was thrown to the ground.  This broke Officer Sellers' hold on the man and left the latter's pistol arm free.  He proceeded to use his weapon without further delay shooting the policeman through the stomach.  The negro after firing the fatal shot started to run away with both revolvers in his hands but railroad men and bystanders grabbed him and he was captured after a hard struggle and brought to this city and lodged in jail.  [Semi-Weekly News:  04 June 1897, Vol. 13, No. 45]  << photo >>

Sellers, John E. -- On the 4th day of June 1897, John E. Sellers was foully murdered by a negro tramp at the Junction Depot. Mr. Sellers was insured in the Maccabees Order for $2000 and on June 24th, just 20 days after his death, Mr. P. S. Lybarger, the secretary of the subordinate lodge of this place, received a draft of $2000 in full payment of the loss. The draft was immediately turned over to Mrs. Sellers. The Maccabees, more familiarly known as the K.O.T.M. has a record for promptness that is hard to equal, and it is one reason why the order is so popular. The prompt payment of it losses, especially where it falls into hands of beneficiaries who are presently in need of the same is one of the many commendable features of this most excellent order. No wonder the order is popular with the masses and is enjoying and receiving the full fruits of success and prosperity to which it is fairly entitled by reason of its fairness and attention to business.

Sellers, John E. -- John E. Sellers was born in Franklin Co., Pa., Dec. 3, 1845, died at Shelby, O., June 4, 1897, aged 51 yrs., 6 mos. and 1 day. He spent his boyhood in the village of St. Thomas, attending school until about the age of 16 years, when he enlisted in Co. H, 2nd Pa V. I. for three months. After his discharge he learned the cabinet making trade. The war excitement being high, he in Aug. 1862, again enlisted in Co. H, 126th Pa. V. I., for nine months. He participated in the battle of South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was discharged with his regiment May 25, 1863. He enlisted the third time in 20th Pa. V. C., for three years, in Jan. 1864, and served in the Shenandoah Valley having participated in the battles of that memorable time, closing with the battle of South Side Railroad, where he was wounded in the right ear and side of the neck, a very dangerous wound. He was for a while in the hospital at Washington, and then transferred to Philadelphia where he was discharged June 1865. Since 1865 he resided in Shelby and vicinity. On Feb. 28, 1866 he united with the Shelby Reformed church. On Nov. 24, 1868 he was married to Miss Susannah Laser, Rev. N. H. Loose officiating. His terribly bereaved wife, son and two daughters survive his sudden departure. His death resulted from a gunshot wound, inflicted by a colored tramp, while on police duty at Shelby Junction. He who heroically battled for his country in a cause that gave freedom to the negro, was cruelly shot down by one of the race he helped to free from the chains of slavery. He was a kind husband and father, pleasing in his social relations, enterprising and widely known as a citizen. This community mourns over the tragic deed that so cruelly destroyed the life of the devoted husband and father. Funeral services were held at the family home, Sunday, June 6, Rev. N. H. Loose officiating. Interment at the London cemetery. The K.O.T.M. (Knights of the Maccabees) and L.O.T.M. (Ladies of the Maccabees) were out in a body, as Mr. Sellers was a member of the K.O.T.M.

Messinger, and David Seltzer, Jr., both of Crestline, Ohio.  Mother Seltzer became a follower of her Savior at the age of 18 years, when she united with the M.E. Church, of which she continued a faithful member until the organization of the Ev. Lutheran Church in Crestline, with which she then united, and in which faith she died, _inking to rest in the arms of Jesus, a firm and unwavering Christian, -- she died with her armor on.  With her dying breath, she admonished her unconverted relatives to meet her in heaven, and bidding them all a last, and, perhaps not, a long farewell, she sank to rest.  The deceased was a noble woman, her benevolence was limited only by her means, which, for a number of years were not stinted.  She was a woman of indomitable perseverance, and fine business capacity, which made her a great help to her husband in an early day of this country, when such qualities were so necessary to success.  We laid her last earthly remains to rest in the Crestline Cemetery, on Wednesday, Feb. 23, at 12 o'clock, M. where she will sleep her last sleep, till the trumpet shall call her thence.  Her body was followed to the tomb by a large concourse of mourning relatives and friends.  A discourse was preached in the Ev. Lutheran Church, on the occasion, by her pastor.  Thus passed away one of our most worthy women whom we all miss, and whose death we lament.  May God, in his mercy, give strength to her aged husband, to stand up under this heavy load of sorrow.  -- D.I.

Sherman, Elizabeth (Wyandt) -- The Great Silence fell upon the earthly life of Mrs. Elizabeth Sherman, Thursday morning of last week, and left desolate, save for beautiful memories, a home of whose daily work and thought she had ever been the center.  Elizabeth Wyandt was born near Plymouth, March 28th., 1839, died at her late home in Plymouth, January 22, 1914, after a brief illness of a little less than a week, having been stricken with apoplexy, suddenly and apparently without warning and seemingly in the midst of health.  But the end came quickly, peacefully and with little conscious pain, a fitting close of an active and useful earthly life.  On September 18th., 1861, the deceased was married to Jacob Christian Sherman, who died March 19, 1913.  Their married life extending over a period of fifty-one years.  One son, Edward Sherman, of Plymouth, and one daughter, Mrs. Amelia Ferrell, of Saginaw, Michigan, are the surviving members of the family.  The earth life just ended, deserves more than passing notice, yet her wish would be to have the record in unassuming phrases.  Early in life she identified herself with the Lutheran church, and with Christian fidelity, gave to it her service of love, still being a member of its Sunday School at the time of her death.  Her characteristic qualities were best exemplified in the home.  In and around this cherished spot, her activities were centered and from it radiated the cheer, helpfulness and love of her willing service to others.  Through her cordial hospitality her home had ever its open door of welcome to her many friends and relatives.  This quality of life is always missed in the greatest measure by those nearest to such a loving heart.  To the devoted daughter and son, who thoughtfully and tenderly ministered to her through her declining years, the richest heritage of a true mother's love.  To the nieces and nephews, who in early life were called to miss a mother from their homes, she has left the tender memory of her motherly interest and care in and over them.  All who came closely within the circle of her family life will surely miss her interests and thoughtful care.  She has left the sweetest memory -- a name honored and revered.  Funeral services were held at her late home January 24, conducted by Dr. John Hall, of Mansfield, a former pastor and warm friend of the family, assisted by Rev. Manford, pastor of the Lutheran Church of Plymouth.  Interment in Greenlawn Cemetery.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  31 January 1914, Vol. 61, No. 11]

Sherwood, Mrs. George -- When the death messenger beckoned Mrs. Geo. Sherwood Saturday night, at the Mrs. A.D. Baughman home, the most beloved woman in Charlotte closed a life work that for years has been a loving inspiration.  Her public position as librarian offered her splendid opportunity to make the most of her natural charms -- patience, cheerfulness and affection.  The children loved her and the love was returned in fullest measure and many a little heart for the first time has been touched by its first genuine sorrow.  She kept a record of the birthdays and remembered young and old with little tokens and sentiments that will be missed but never forgotten.  She died as she lived, calm and serene and a gentle smile welcomed the death angel.  Mrs. Sherwood had a premonition she would die this year.  Mr. Sherwood, the venerable patriarch of other days, died twenty years ago;  her two daughters, Helen and Josie, passed away five years apart, and Mrs. Sherwood had her mind set she would go this year so deliberate had been the cold hand of fate with others of her family.  Death, while heavy in its toll, was kind to its victim, Mrs. Sherwood being ill for only a day and was conscious to within a few minutes of the end, which she realized was near.  Mrs. Sherwood's death removes the last of the old pioneer party that came here from Plymouth, Ohio, in the early days, with the exception of Mrs. John Shear, mother of George J. Shear and Mrs. Charles Hyatt.  Her nearest kin is Ralph Allcutt, a nephew from New York, who was notified, but was in the mountains and could not be located, the friends deciding to place the remains in the vault pending some definite word from him.  The remains were removed Sunday morning to her own home on South Main Street, which had been placed in readiness by loving hands, each vying with the other in showing their regard for the memory of the deceased.  The floral tributes were many and came from all classes, many little folks bringing a bouquet for "Auntie" Sherwood.  The services were held Thursday afternoon, Rev. VanAuken, in a beautiful tribute, touching her unusual standing in the community.  The library board, all of whom were affectionately proud of her as a friend and an officer, were the honorary and active pall bearers, C.B. Lamb taking the place of Mr. Spencer who is out of the city.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  16 October 1915, Vol. 62, No. 47 as reprinted from the Charlotte (Mich.) Republican of October 8, 1915]

Shields, Earl E.

Shiffler, Edward -- Mansfield, August 12 -- A fatal accident occurred on the New York Pennsylvania & Ohio Railroad in this city about 9 o'clock.  Edward Shiffler, agent and carrier of the Cincinnati Times-Star, while at the Union Depot an emigrant train from the East drew up at the station, and supposing it would stop at the Baltimore & Ohio depot, he jumped aboard.  Unfortunately for young Shiffler, the train passed by the depot at the rate of fifteen miles per hour.  Notwithstanding this alarming fact, the boy leaped from the train, but fell headforemost, and, rolling over once or twice, brought his right arm under the wheels, which crushed it almost to a jelly.  Besides this injury there was a fracture of the skull, and sundry bruises and contusion, from the combine effects of which he died this afternoon.  His age was about fifteen.  --  [Bellville Star:  17 August 1882, Vol. V, No. 46 as reprinted from the Cleveland Leader]

[BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY: 12 September 1873, Vol. 2, No. 28] **A follow-up article appears later in the same paper, which reads ... SAD ACCIDENT -- On Thursday afternoon, Sept. 4th., as Mr. O. Shimer with his wife and child were coming from the State Fair at Mansfield, an accident occurred a short distance this side of that place, which resulted in the death of the child, and severe injuries to Mrs. Shimer. It appears that he was driving along at a moderate rate, and they were eating a lunch, when J.A. Hamilton came up, and as he was going faster started to pass, when Shimer's horses took fright and in grasping up the lines which had been hanging loosely he pulled the wrong line, causing the two vehicles to run together. The collision caused Mrs. Shimer and child to be thrown out, resulting in the death of the child in about an hour. Mrs. Shimer's shoulder was dislocated, and she was otherwise bruised. Under the care of Dr. T.T. Austin she is improving.

Shoup, Mrs. Hattie Neer and Mrs. Annie Miller.  There are thirteen grandchildren living.  After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Shoup lived for three years at Hastings and then moved on their farm in Washington Twp., where Mr. Shoup died and where Mrs. Shoup continued to reside until one year ago, when she moved with her son-in-law, Mr. Miller, to his present residence, two miles south of Bellville.  The deceased was a true, liberal and faithful member of the Mt. Olive Lutheran church for twenty-five years.  Together with those already mentioned, Mrs. Shoup leaves two brothers, Cyrus and Henry Collins, of Mansfield, Mrs. Frank Lash, of Kansas City, and Mrs. Henry Shoup, of Jefferson City, Mo.  The last sickness of Mrs. Shoup continued only about a week with little hope from its beginning, of her recovery.  The funeral services, conducted by Rev. J.F. Hersheiser, were held at the home of Mr. Miller, where she died, on Sunday morning, attended by a large number of friends and neighbors, and the burial was made in a cemetery in Washington Twp., near her old homestead.  The floral tributes were numerous and of a tasteful and beautiful character and were expressive of the love and sympathy of family and friends.  --  [Butler Enterprise:  29 September 1905, Vol. 17, No. 34]

Church and the funeral discourse was delivered by the pastor, the Rev. Mills, on Friday.  Interment was made at the Union Cemetery in Washington Township.  A wife and two children, a boy aged 9 and a girl aged 14, are left to mourn his demise.  [Semi-Weekly News:  29 January 1897, Vol. 13, No. 9]

Shoup, Ellett -- Ellett Shoup was born Aug. 21, 1860 and died Jan. 20, 1897, at 5 p.m., aged 36 years, 4 months and 29 days.  The funeral services were held Friday at 10 a.m.  The funeral discourse was made at the M.E. church by Rev. Mills.  The remains were laid to rest in the Union Cemetery, near Little Washington.  A large concourse of friends and relatives paid deceased their last sad rights by turning out to his funeral.  A loving wife and two nice children -- a girl and a boy -- survive him to mourn their loss.  Mr. Shoup was an unassuming, upright, honorable man without an enemy in the wide world.  He was also a very devout man.  Ellett Shoup was born and raised on a farm in Washington Township.  He was the son of Mr. & Mrs. Solomon Shoup, and was one of a family of six children, three sons and three daughters.  He was married at Hastings, Dec. 21, 1881, to Miss Anna Maglott, the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Peter Maglott and sister to Dr. John Maglott, of Mansfield.  Soon after his marriage he came here to Butler and engaged in the boot and shoe business in which he continued for about six years.  He then disposed of his stock and for a number of years afterward secured employment as clerk in various stores in town, working for Wise & Co. for several years;  <<missing text>>  and for Weant & Stichler.  During the last couple of years of his life, however, his failing health made it impossible for him to work long without breaking down.  In his youth and young manhood his constitution was strong and robust;  it was  then, by industry and economy, that he acquired the property which he owned at the time of his death.  The house in which he died was built by him but a few years ago.  When but 18 years of age he united with the Lutheran church, near Hastings, in which society he was an active and faithful member until his removal to Butler.  When he came here he united with the M.P. church -- there being no branch of the Lutheran here.  When the M.E. society was organized in 1893, he joined this association and has been connected with that branch ever since.  The deceased was honest and trustworthy to all who ever game him employment.  Their interest was his interest -- never shirking a duty.  Honesty, too, was his chief virtue;  and certainly none can accuse him of ever committing a dishonest act or of betraying confidence and trust reposed in him.  In church circles he was an active Christian one who devoted his life and his talents to advancing the cause of Christ.  As long as health permitted he went with his family to church services and gave his voice in song and in speech to the praise of his Master.  In Sunday School he was a faithful worker, having taught a class for several years.    [unidentified newspaper:  n.d.g.]

Shoup, Raymond

Shoup, Samie -- Plymouth.  The funeral of Samie Shoup, was held Sunday at 7 o'clock at the Lutheran Church.  The church was crowded to its utmost capacity and many could not gain admission even into the vestibules.  Professor Orr of our public schools spoke of the deceased for about 10 minutes and paid a splendid tribute to the bright young life that had gone out on earth to shine far brighter in eternity.  Miss Sibbett, his first teacher in the public schools, read a very touching eulogy on her former pupil, who she said had entered her heart at the time he entered her school room.  The Rev. Miller, his pastor, spoke in loving terms of the bright manly youth of whom nothing grander could be said than that he was a consistent Christian.  He spoke of the remarkable character of the boy, who was only 14 years of age, and of his being possessed of those indefinable characteristics that drew people to him and held them as friends.  In his experience the pastor said he never saw one of his age who had a better conception of the requisites which go toward making a true Christian character.  In Samie Shoup the church has lost a bright and shining light;  the schools, a manly studious noble pattern for other pupils to imitate;  and the community, a boy who gave promise of being at the top round of the ladder early in youth and one, who, when the angel of death called him was wise - far beyond his years.  A mother's heart is crushed but a host of friends mourn with her in her affliction.  The interment was in Greenlawn Cemetery.  [Semi-Weekly News:  05 February 1879, Vol. 13, No. 11]

Shupe, Sarah (Griffith) -- Her funeral took place at Shiloh, on Friday, June 2d.  A suitable sermon for the occasion was preached by Rev. H.G. DuBois -- Rev's. McKean, Wilhelm and Steman, taking part in the solemn exercises.  The deceased, a daughter of Walter and Elizabeth Griffith, was born at Wellsville, Ohio, January 8th., 1810, and brought by her parents to Tuscarawas County, Ohio, near the Falls of Sugar Creek, about the year 1812.  She was married to Mr. A. Shupe, December 10th., 1827, residing ever since in Tuscarawas, Stark and Richland Counties, Ohio.  She was the mother of thirteen children, only six of whom survive her.  She had a remarkable mind for business;  a constant, patient, faithful toiler, and thus contributed much toward the maintenance of her numerous family -- being truly a help-meet to her husband.  It is believed by those who knew her best that she was a meek and humble follower of her dear Savior from childhood;  and a consistent member of the Methodist and Lutheran Churches for more than a third century.  She was a great, but patient sufferer for more than twenty years;  but during all this time, she was cheerful, happy and trusting.  That strong hope which is "as an anchor to the soul, sure and steadfast" -- never forsook her, but grew stronger and brighter even to the approach of the "River".  None knew her but to love, none mentioned but to praise.  She died as she lived -- without an enemy on earth.  In all her varied trials -- and they were almost without number -- she maintained a buoyant happy frame of mind.  She was ever kind, ever loving, ever obliging, ever gentle.  Finding these traits of character in life, we are not surprised to hear among her last words such expressions as "In the midst of life, we are in death", "All is well, the coast is clear", "I am just about crossing the River", "Blessed Savior, I am almost there"  She retained her faculties of mind to the end, and five minutes before she breathed her last, she spoke, and recognized family and friends;  and suddenly after -- her voice failing -- she clapped her hands quite strongly, and her sweet spirit winged its way to the bosom of her ever loving Redeemer.  [Shelby Independent News:  15 June 1871, Vol. 3, No. 33]

Noble, a farmer nationally known as a live-stock man and a former county commissioner was an uncle of Mr. Sibbett.  Miss Mary Sibbett, a sister, who died about seven years ago, had taught school in Plymouth 27 years. She had been invalid in later years and was devotedly care for by her brother at the family home in Boughtonville.  Mr. Sibbett attended the M. E. church at Delphi.  He was a 32nd. degree Mason and a member of the Knights Templar and Mystic Shrine.  In the strict sense of the phrase, Mr. Sibbett was a self-made man.  After being graduated from Plymouth high school he attended the old Ada Normal University now the Ohio Northern University at Ada.  For a number of years he taught school and later bought the large farm in Ripley Township west of Delphi that he retained up till the time of his death.  In 1908, Mr. Sibbett purchased the elevator and general supply store at Boughtonville, which he continued successfully about 15 years.  Eleven years ago, Mr. Sibbett disposed of the elevator and store at Boughtonville to attend his various other important business affairs.  It was his good fortune to make a number of excellent investments.  At the time of his death, Mr. Sibbett was a director of the People's Bank of Plymouth; a director of the North Fairfield Savings Bank Co., a director of the Saving & Loan Banking Co. of New London, and was a director and president of the Farmers's Banking Company of Greenwich; as president of the Farmer’s Bank of Greenwich, he succeeded the late Wm. A. Knapp who died last March.  For many years, he had served as administrator of many estates.  In his business dealings, Mr. Sibbett was so honest and upright that his name with many became a symbol of just the square dealing.  The decedent did not merely aim to keep within the law, but he constantly strove to live up to the spirit of the law and fair play.  The excellent character and agreeable personality of Harry Sibbett drew to him an exceedingly large number of loyal devoted friends.  Even many who met him only casually liked him exceedingly, and many whom Mr. Sibbett probably did not realize he had impressed deeply, will sincerely lament his passing.  In his tastes, Mr. Sibbett showed marked refinement.  He patronized high grade musical attractions and was delighted especially by productions of Shakespeare’s plays.  While Mr. Sibbett was a patient at Memorial hospital scores came to visit with him. In one day, 57 called.  One of the indications of high regard in which the decedent was held is the fact that many persons in trouble and perplexity came to him for counsel, advice and sympathy.  He was ever willing to play the part of the big brother. Mr. Sibbett never married.  The body was taken to the home of the sister, Mrs. Huffman, where brief services were held at 12:30 p.m., Monday. At 1 p.m., Monday services were conducted by the Rev. G. R. Mente, and old friend of Mr. Sibbett, at the Delphi M. E. church.  The body was interred beside the graves of his parents and sister, at Plymouth.  Friends at Plymouth insisted that services be held at the M. E. church later in the day and this request was complied with.  The Norwalk Commandery Knights Templar conducted the services at Plymouth.  Submitted by Terry W.  [unknown newspaper]

Sibbett, Lowry -- At about seven o'clock Thursday morning, Lowry Sibbett died from an attack of la grippe and old age.  He was born Sept. 8, 1808 at Springfield, Cumberland county, Pennsylvania, and was therefore aged 81 years, 4 months and 8 days at the time of his death.  His wife, formerly Phoebe Loyd, of Carlisle, Pa., died Nov. 24, 1887.   Deceased came to Washington township, Richland county in 1840.  He was the first superintendent of the county infirmary, served three years as street commissioner of Mansfield and eight years as justice of the peace.  The funeral of the late Lowry Sibbett will take place on Saturday under the auspices of the I.O.O.F.  Members will assemble at the hall at 9:30 a.m. and proceed to the house.  The remains will be conveyed to the Congregational church where services will be held by Rev. Mr. Hubbell.  Hence the remains will be followed to the cemetery where the Odd Fellows funeral ritual will be the order.  Squire Sibbet was a member of the subordinate lodge of Mohican encampment, and a member of the Mansfield Lodge, No. 19, for about half a century.  [Mansfield Herald:  16 January 1890, Vol. 49, No. 9]

Sibbett, Lowry -- Lowry Sibbett is no more.  Death relieved him of earthly cares at 7 o'clock this morning.  Aged and infirm an attack of la grippe further weakened his constitution and he had not strength to rally.  His last illness commenced about two weeks ago but he did not become bedfast until the latter part of last week.  Since then he sank gradually and his spirit peacefully and quietly passed out into the great unknown beyond.  Lowry Sibbett was born at Springfield, Cumberland County, Pa., Sept. 8, 1808.  His age therefore, was 81 years, 4 months and 8 days.  On the day when Mr. Sibbett became an octogenarian the NEWS published a biographical sketch of him from data furnished by him to a reporter and from that sketch the following facts are gleaned:  When he was seven years old his mother died.  His father, Samuel Sibbett, broke up housekeeping and he made his home with one, Samuel Piper, until he was sixteen years old.  He then became an apprentice in a woolen factory at Emmettsberg, Md., where he remained seven years and in the meantime he was made foreman of the factory.  In 1821 he became superintendent of the Kidminster carpet mills near Carlisle, Pa., where he remained until the mills were destroyed by fire in 1836.  The next four years he and a brother were proprietors of a woolen mill at Shellsburg, Pa., which was destroyed by fire.  He married Phoebe Lloyd, of Carlisle, in -----, 18--.  To them were born three children, all of whom are dead and Mrs. Sibbett died in this city Nov. 24, 1887.  In 1840 Mr. Sibbett came to Richland County with his family and located in Washington Township.  Six years later he was made superintendent of the county infirmary.  He was the first superintendent of that institution and he served in that capacity ten years.  He then resided for ten years on a farm near Mansfield, which was a small village then, but the farm is now a portion of the city and has long been divided into lots.  He sold the farm and moved into the city in 1866 since which time he continuously resided in Mansfield.  During the war he owned a rag store which, he often said, was the best paying business he ever went into.  He served three years as street commissioner before the city was divided into wards and was since elected to the same office for the same length of time.  Eight years ago he was elected a justice of the peace of Madison Township and he occupied that official position until his death.  Mr. Sibbett was the oldest Odd Fellow in Mansfield, although he was not as old in the order as a few others in this city.  He was a member of the Encampment and an honorary member of the Canton.  Mr. Sibbett was a devoted Odd Fellow.  He had been a member for many years and had done much in his lifetime in friendship, love and truth.  He had often helped care for the sick, for he had occupied all the chairs in the subordinate lodge and the encampment, and in his last days the lodge cared for him and will bury him with appropriate ceremonies.  The funeral will occur Saturday at 10 o'clock a.m. from the Congregational church of which society the deceased was a member.  The Odd Fellows will meet at the lodge room at 9:30 o'clock and will accompany the remains from the residence to the church.  At the church, services will be conducted by the Rev. J.W. Hubbell and the pall bearers will be members of the congregation.  At the grave the rites of the order will be observed.  Every Odd Fellow in Mansfield, who possibly can do so, should attend the funeral of this venerable and worthy brother.  Mr. Sibbett leaves but few relatives.  His family all preceded him to the grave.  Two nieces live in Indiana and a grand niece resides at Plymouth.  Of the former, Mrs. Cicero McCluer, of Crawfordsville, Ind., had been notified of Mr. Sibbett's illness and she arrived just a few minutes after his death occurred.  She will remain until after the funeral.  --  [Mansfield Evening News:  16 January 1890, Vol. 5, No. 268]

Sibbett, Thomas Hartley Crawford -- Thomas Hartley Crawford Sibbett was born in Franklin county, Pa., September 22, 1830, and departed this life March 15, 1913, aged 82 years, 5 months and 23 days. He was a son of Samuel and Nancy Greenfield Sibbett, and had three brothers, Hugh G., Emmett and Samuel L.; three sisters, Nancy, Anna and Mary Alice. The last two named are the only surviving members of the family.  When Mr. Sibbett was 26 years of age the family, except the father, who had been called to his heavenly home, went to Mansfield, where they lived two years.  Margaret Jane, daughter of Harvey and Margaret Little Noble, was born near Shiloh, Ohio, May 25, 1837, and died March 18, 1913, at the age of 75 years, 9 months and 23 days.  The deceased were married October 12th by Rev. John T. Kellam, who at that time was pastor at Old Salem. They spent the first seven years of their married life at Lexington. In 1865 they came to Ripley. They joined the Delphi Methodist church and have been interested in the civic, social religious life of the community all these years.  The possessed sunny, cheerful dispositions, their home was one of great hospitality and all who crossed its threshold were made welcome.  Seven children knew the love of this devoted father and mother; two, William Lowrey and Luella, dying in childhood. There remain Mary Alice, Harry Hugh, Minnie G. Huffman, Thomas H. and Llewellyn B.  Mr. Sibbett gradually grew weaker as the infirmities of age came up on him. For fourteen weeks he was confined to his bed and greeted with friends who called to see him with these words, "I have no pain, I'm just very weak."  For several years Mrs. Sibbett had asthmatic heart trouble. She was ? to be about the house and spent many hours sitting by her husband of her youth, keeping constant vigil. When death claimed him she was too frail to bear the grief and the thought of separation. God touched her too, and with no pain, no suffering, but as silently as the daylight comes when night is done, each one fell asleep.  For fifty-five years they had travled together; now they journey on together in the future life.  Funeral services were held at the church, Rev. Tompkins, their pastor, and Rev. Balmer, a friend, officiating.  The caskets were surrounded by beautiful floral pieces, farewell tributes of friends and neighbors.  The Bearers of both bodies were the three sons, the son-in-law, a grandson and a nephew.  Interment was made in Mt. Hope Cemetery, Shiloh, where both bodies rest on one grave.

Lundey.  She was born July 7th., 1832 at the Quaker Settlement, Warren Co., New Jersey.  Her father was a leading spirit among the Quakers, but his noble Christian heart going out after other Christians of other churches, so much as to attend and participate in their services, he severed his outward connection with the Friends.  Her parents came to Wyandot Co., O. in 1836, during her early childhood Miss Lundey was married to John Simpson at Sycamore, O. in 1851, he having been born in the same settlement in N.J. with his wife.  They came to Bellville, O., in 1863 when Mr. Simpson took charge of Bower's Mill and afterwards of the Whitcomb's Mill.  This place was their home until their late removal to Johnstown, O. two years ago.  Mrs. Simpson retained the early impressions of her education in her quiet manners, and her sincerity of heart, which endeared her to all who know her.  She and her husband, who was reared under Presbyterian influences, attended the Presbyterian church at this place as regularly as her health would permit.  For years she was a patient sufferer, a paralytic stroke hastening her death.  Some thirty hours before her release from earth's pains she fell into a sleep from which she never awoke here.  A bereaved husband and two children are left, a son, Edward, and a daughter, Hattie, wife of Dr. J.W. Kelly, both of Bellville.  Mrs. Simpson's remains were brought to this place last Saturday morning and the funeral service conducted by Rev. W.W.

Norris, of Johnstown, O., sisters of John Simpson.  Mrs. Mary Simpson, a sister-in-law, also the Mrs. Hardings, very kind neighbors of Mrs. Simpson, from Johnstown.  How sweet to know that she is "at rest".  --  [Bellville Star:  01 July 1886, Vol. 9, No. 40]

Slaybaugh, Magdaline

Slaybaugh, Magadaline Starry -- Miss Magadaline Starry was born in Northampton county Pa., March 20th, 1790, .and removed with her friends to Adams county Pa., when quite young. Here she was married to George Slaybaugh and removed with him to Richland county in 1834 and settled on the same farm which they continued to occupy up to the time of their respective deaths. This county was then an almost unbroken wilderness, with here and there an improvement and they had to clear up their farm and make it ready for the plow. How well the Scriptural injunction was fulfilled in their case the following record will show. They had born to them eleven children, of whom the oldest Polly, was married to Joe Cline and now lives in Pa., the second was "William who resides in Shelby; the third Daniel who lives in Indiana; the fourth was Elizabeth who was married to Mose Demmuth and lives in Crestline; the fifth Jonas who resides about one mile west of Shelby; The sixth Samuel who resides in Missouri; the seventh Sarah, married to Moses Rambo who resides about one mile West of Shelby; the eighth Hannah, married to John Dodine, (she has been dead about sixteen years), the ninth George who is now Superintendant of the Crawford County Infirmary, the tenth Eliza, married to John Garnhart who lives about one and one-half miles north-west from Shelby; and the eleventh was Rebecca who continued to live with, and take care of her mother up to the time of her death. There are thirty-four grand-children, seventy-nine great grand-children and two great, great grand children. Mr. George Slaybaugh, the husband, died seventeen years ago last January, at the age of over seventy-six years, he having been born in Adams county Pa., in October, 1779. The deceased enjoyed good health, for one of her advanced years, up until within two weeks of her death, and when she finally passed away it was from the weight of years and without pain. She died at twelve and one-half o'clock A. M., May 16th, 1883, at the advanced age of 93 years';2 months and 14 days. Her death occurred on the anniversary of the marriage of her son William, who was with her constantly assisting to administer to her wants for the past two weeks. Her daughter Rebecca has also been a constant attendant upon her during sickness and health. It is seldom that we are called upon to record the death of one so aged, and we are here reminded, in the death of one who has passed far beyond the allotted span of four score years and ten, that "it is allotted to all men once to die," that "life is but a journey to the tomb." While we extend sympathy to the relatives in the loss of one who has through an extended life endeared herself to them, yet she had filled to the full and overflowing her cup of usefulness in this world, and was ready, no doubt to exclaim with the Apostle Paul: "I have fought a good fight, I have finished thy course, I have kept the faith, hence-forth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, shall give me at that day.''  Submitted by Marjorie.  [unknown newspaper found in a book formerly owned by Mrs. Anna L.
