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]

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, 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]

Shutt, John M. -- Thursday.  John M. Shutt, of Plymouth, was buried today at 10 o'clock from the residence of his mother at the above place.  There is considerable mystery in regard to the manner of his death, as nothing whatever can be learned except that he died suddenly in Chicago on the 29th. of last month and his remains were shipped to Plymouth Tuesday.  Shutt was an unmarried man of about 38 years of age, well respected by all who knew him and was never known to keep bad company.  He was a music teacher by profession and is well known all over the northern part of the county.  He some time ago went to Chicago to follow his profession and all that his friends and relatives know about his demise is that he is dead.  Whether he died a natural or a violent death has not been communicated but the people in the village of Plymouth are of the opinion that there is foul play somewhere.  An investigation will be made in the matter to fully determine the cause of his death.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  11 October 1890, Vol. LXXIII, No. 21]

Sibbett, Harry H. -- On last Friday evening at Memorial hospital, Norwalk death took from Huron county one of its very finest and most highly respected sons in Harry H. Sibbett, 61, of Boughtonville.  The demise of this splendid citizen will occasion widespread and poignant grief throughout the county.  Then Harry Sibbett, it is doubtful if Huron county ever possessed a resident more generally known or more beloved.  On Saturday, Aug. 16 it will be remembered at about 1 a.m., Mr. Sibbett, George Knight, started to drive to their home in Boughtonville, after Mr. Sibbett had driven to Norwalk to attend a meeting of the fair board of which he was a member.  Just north of the fairgrounds entrance, an automobile struck a South Line flat car loaded with steel rails.  This car was being shoved by a gasoline locomotive and Mr. Sibbett was unable to see clearly because of the blinding headlight on the locomotive.  Messrs. Sibbett and Knight were severely injured and suffered from much shock.  In a few days, Mr. Knight, who was 86 years of age, died at the Memorial hospital.  Mr. Sibbett was born in Lexington the son of T. H. C. Sibbett and Margaret Sibbett.  When he was very young his parents moved to Ripley Township, Huron County, Ohio.  Mr. Sibbett is survived by his sister, Mrs. Henry M. Huffman of Fairfield twp., two brothers, Thomas of Ripley twp., and L. B. Sibbett of Fairfield twp.  The parents died within a period of about six hours 15 years or so ago and were buried at the same time in adjoining graves. The late W. P. 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. Anderson, pastor of the Presbyterian church, was held the same afternoon at the home of Dr. Kelly.  The large number of truly sympathizing friends present bore testimony to the place Mr. and Mrs. Simpson had justly won in the hearts of this community.  The following relatives and friends from abroad were at the funeral service:  Mrs. Elizabeth Hill, of Sycamore, O., Mr. and Mrs. William Hoffman, of Tiffin, O., and Mr. and Mrs. P.T. 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.
