Snyder, May -- MURDERS MOTHER OF FOUR, FATHER THEN KILLS SELF -- TEMPORARY INSANITY LEADS MANSFIELD MAN TO COMMIT CRIME -- WOMAN SHOT WHILE SHE WATCHED BABY  -- HARRY SNYDER SLAYS HIS WIFE AND THEN TAKES HIS OWN LIFE  -- As she sat on the porch of her little home last Friday afternoon, Mrs. May Snyder, aged 32, watched her youngest child, Mary Jane, just two years old, at play.  As she watched the romping of the baby her husband, Harry Snyder, aged 35, temporary insane through jealousy crouched behind a screen door a few feet away and leveled a shot gun at her.  There was a deafening roar and the woman crumpled up in her chair.  Snyder turned into the house and placing the gun against his breast, fired the second time.  Neighbors called the police and Snyder was taken to General Hospital where he died an hour later.  Mrs. Snyder was dead when people living in the neighborhood reached the porch.  Some one pulled a white sheet over the body of the mother whose lifeless body remained seated in the chair, and her life blood trickled over the porch where a few minutes before her baby had been playing.  Authorities conducting an investigation learned that Snyder was crazed by jealousy which friends of the family assert was absolutely groundless.  The father had been employed at the plant of the Mansfield Sheet & Tin Plate Company and until a week before the tragedy had been considered a hardworking, home-loving citizen.  Early in the week he complained of not feeling well and stayed at home.  Saturday he did some repair work to an automobile and then entered the house.  Mrs. Snyder was sitting on the porch awaiting time for the preparation of the evening meal.  The couple are survived by four children:  Charles 12;  Ray 5;  John 4 and Mary Jane 2.  [Richland County Leader:  10 August 1922, Vol. 3, No. 33]

Snyder, Sherman F. -- SHELBY.  The remains of Sherman F. Snyder who died in Dakota, Sept. 3rd., arrived hers Saturday and were interred on Sunday, Elder Bowell, of Mansfield, conducting the services.  Snyder seems to have died under suspicious circumstances.  He went from this place to Dakota about five years ago and took up a squatter's claim, for which he would have received a deed in a few days had he lived.  A few days before his death his parents received a letter from him in which he stated that he was well and expected after getting his deed during the present month to visit them about Oct. 1st.  On Sept. 3rd. a telegram was received announcing his death and at the request of his parents his body was shipped here and arrived as stated above.  Snyder while residing here, it is said, was an inoffensive and industrious young man and it is the opinion of many that he was foully dealt with by some party or parties who desired to possess themselves of his claim.  No autopsy was held, a thing that should have been done under the circumstances, in order to shed light, if possible, upon what is generally regarded as a mysterious death.  The friends are thinking seriously of sending an attorney to Snyder's late residence to look after his claim, and to learn, if possible, the manner in which he came to his death.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  14 September 1889, Vol. LXXII, No. 17]

Spain, Mrs. A.L. (nee Weirrick) -- Shortly after noon yesterday a report was circulated that a woman had dropped dead very suddenly on North East Diamond Street.  Later the first report was augmented and made sensational by the rumor that the cause of death was poison while still another report conveyed the information that the lady had been beaten to death.  An investigation of matters showed that the lady referred to is a Mrs. Spain, wife of A.L. Spain, a member of the firm of Reed & Spain, dealers in second-hand goods and doing business at the southeast corner of North Diamond and East Johns streets.  The Spain family live in the second story of an old frame building located just south of the business block.  By a great deal of questioning the reporter obtained the following information:  Mrs. Spain was engaged in getting the noon-day meal, as usual, when the head of the family took a small tin vessel and, with their small child upon his arm, went down to the street to get the daily supply of milk.  Upon reaching the street Spain says the milkman was not in sight and, accordingly he unlocked the door of his business rooms and went into wait. At the expiration of not over twenty minutes, the husband thinks, he returned to their rooms to find his wife lying on the floor insensible and dying.  He went out on the street and stopped a couple of boys, sending one for Dr. McQuillen and the other for a neighbor, saying, at the same time, that Mrs. Spain was dying.  Dr. McMillen arrived shortly after and found the woman dead.  The matter created considerable talk and, as the attending physician found the woman pregnant, he sent for Coroner Maglott, who consulted several neighbors and elicited the information that the husband wife did not get along well together, to put it in the mildest form.  Spain did not appear to exhibit any great grief and talked in such a disconnected manner that, after a consultation with Dr. McMillen, the coroner deemed it his duty to hold a port mortem and accordingly he summoned Drs. McCullough, Hedges, Harding, and a post mortem was held at 3 o'clock in the afternoon.  The official result of the examination is withheld and no details can be obtained other than that there was found to be a contusion of the pit of the stomach and a corrosion of the bowels, which would indicate poison and an unnatural cause of death.  On being questioned one of the physicians state that they were not satisfied with the results of their investigation, but would give no further information.  Coroner Maglott says that he will defer the inquest for a day or two and in the meantime is busily engaged in looking up evidence and witnesses in the case.  The neighborly acquaintance of the family seems to be limited and consequently Dr. Maglott is experiencing considerable difficulty in securing information.  The deceased was 23 years of age and her maiden name was Weirrick.  The family formerly kept the Mansfield House, opposite the Keller House on North Main Street.  Telegrams conveying the sad intelligence of the death were sent to James Hutchinson, a brother-in-law of Spain, who resides at No. 936 Woodland Avenue, Cleveland, and also to Frank Weirrick, a brother, who lives at 38 Ashland Avenue, Cleveland.  There were no new developments in the matter this afternoon.  Spain was missing all morning, but at noon he returned.  A SHIELD reporter talked with him at the house prior to the funeral.  He said that nothing was kept in the house in the shape of poison and that "as God was his judge he had not done his wife any harm."  The funeral took place at 3 o'clock this afternoon from his residence.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  22 October 1892]

Spayde, Blanche -- The family of Daniel Spayde, a laborer residing at 66 West Johns Street, was sadly bereaved yesterday afternoon by the drowning of Blanche, the 5-year-old daughter.  About 6 o'clock her father noticed her absence and he called for her.  Receiving no response he began searching about the premises, thinking that perhaps she was playing and had not heard his call.  The longer he searched the more alarmed he became and at last he peered into the cistern, but could not see anything.  He fished around in the water with a rake and in a short time he caught hold of her dress and drew the body out.  Death had come some time before, as she had been missed at least 15 minutes.  The cistern cover had been removed and she fell in while drawing water.  --  [Mansfield Evening News:  19 June 1890, Vol. 6, No. 90]

Spayde, a sodder by occupation, who resides on West Johns street, in the last house next to the B. & O. railroad, about 6:45 Wednesday evening had occasion to get water from a cistern for mixing it with Paris green to put on potato vines.  In the yard were playing a number of children, among whom were four of his own.  The children were having a good time and eating a supper under a tree.  The cistern is a very deep one located on the northeast side of the house and has water almost up to the trap door.  There is no pump in the cistern and only a door with leather hinges.  When Mr. Spayde got his water he carefully closed the door and went to the potato patch in the same yard.  When he returned in about fifteen minutes Mrs. Spayde asked where Blanchie, the third child, aged between five and six was.  None of the children knew, and she could not be found about the house.  Mr. Spayde thought that possibly she had fallen into the cistern.  He looked in the hole, but could see nothing.  He concluded to make a closer search and put down a rake.  On the bottom of the cistern he caught the clothes of the child and dragged forth its lifeless body.  The property belongs to Johann Connors, who has repeatedly promised to put in a pump, but always failed.  Mr. Spayde has lived there for two years and this is the first that he ever knew any but the eldest child to go near the cistern.  --  [Mansfield Herald:  19 June 1890, Vol. 40, No. 31]   *The news article actually listed the father as "J.G." Spayde, but other news items have revealed that this was incorrect, and that the father's name was actually "J.D." Spayde.  -- AEA 10/05

Spitler, Durbin -- After having been at home narly a week, during which time his friends had felt encouraged by his condition to build high hopes for his restoration to health and strength, Durbin Spitler, one of the members of Company M, 8th. Regiment, and a well known and most worthy young man, passed away at 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Catharine Gilkison, 203 East Third Street, where he boarded.  His comrades of Company M, as well as the host of warm personal friends which Durbin had, join with the family in mourning the loss of one who was so worthy and showed such bright prospects for a long and useful life.  The cause of his death was typhoid fever.  He left Mansfield with the company last April and was well until he reached Montauk Point on his return from Cuba.  There he was taken ill Thursday, Sept. 1.  In his letters to relatives he spoke of being well.  A week ago today he arrived here on sick furlough in company with a number of other sick members of Company M.  He seemed to be getting better gradually after arriving home.  His parents, Mr. & Mrs. A.J. Spitler, of Tiffin, were with him until the last.  He remained conscious until just before his life -- short when considered by the number of years he lived, but long when the good he did is taken into consideration -- came to its close and he bade goodbye to friends and to the scenes of earth, which were opening out before him so splendidly.  Saturday he seemed better, but Saturday night he grew worse, but even on Sunday morning he seemed to his friends to be brighter than he was the evening before.  However, at 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon he passed away.  Durbin had been a ember of Company M for some time.  Before going with his company to the war, he had been employed at the cold storage plant of his uncle, A.F. Spitler, on East Johns Street.  He was born at Bloomville, Dec. 6, 1871, and was therefore 26 years, 9 months and 5 days old.  He was an exemplary, manly, Christian character and he was active in Christian work.  For a long time before he went away he was one of the ushers at the Baptist Church, a member of the Baptist Sunday school and of the Young People's society.  In his letters home to relatives and friends he spoke of his strong faith in religion and asked his friends to pray for him.  On every hand tributes are paid to his memory by those who knew him best.  During his last illness he received every attention that loving hearts could give.  A short service was held this morning at 10:30 o'clock at the home of Mrs. Gilkison, on East Third Street, and was conducted by the Rev. Frank G. McFarland, of the Baptist church.  The pall bearers were comrades of Company M.  The funeral party left at 12:12 o'clock today on the B.&O. for Tiffin, where the funeral will be held Tuesday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, at the home of his father, conducted by the Rev. J.P. Stratton, of the Presbyterian church.  It had been intended to have Company M attend the funeral of their dead comrade in a body, but owing to the illness of some of the members of the company and the week physical condition of others, it was thought inadvisable to march and attend in a body, though a number were there to pay the last tribute of respect to the fallen comrade who had passed on to his final reward.  The members of Company M who officiated as pall bearers were:  Grant Alvord, John Curran, Dennis Lowery, William A. Culp, Oscar Stahl and John C. Culp.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  13 September 1898, Vol. 14, No. 76]

Spohn which occurred Monday at 1:30 a.m. came in the nature of a shock to her many friends in Butler and vicinity, after a serious illness of only a few days.  She had been afflicted with diabetes for some time, but arose Friday morning feeling unusually well.  She performed the usual household duties until about 4 o'clock the same afternoon, when she was stricken with the disease in all its seriousness.  She never rallied from the attack and passed peacefully away shortly after midnight Sunday, having never regained consciousness from the comatose condition in which she had fallen Sunday.  The funeral was held Wednesday at 10 a.m. from the family home, and services were conducted at the Evangelical church by Rev. H.C. Berger, under the auspices of Silver Star lodge, D. of R., of which deceased was a prominent member.  The beautiful burial service of the order was conducted by Miss Birdella Staunton, Noble Grand, assisted by the subordinate of Silver Star.  Interment was made in the Zion Cemetery, north of Butler.  Mary (Litt) Spohn was born Dec. 18, 1868, died Nov. 5, 1906, aged 37 years, 10 months and 17 days.  She was united in marriage with Wm. M. Spohn, to which union was born five children, four daughters and one son, who, with the husband, survive her untimely demise.  The contribution of flowers was large and fine, attesting the high esteem in which deceased was held by her friends and neighbors.  The bereft family have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their dark hour of sorrow.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  09 November 1906, Vol. 14, No. 41]
