Wood, Charlotte Parker -- Entered into heavenly rest, Sunday, December 2, 1883, at 5 o'clock P.M., Mrs. Charlotte Parker Wood, wife of John Wood, Esq., and eldest child of Judge Jacob Parker, deceased. This announcement brings sorrow to the hearts of many loving friends, who through the slowly-passing autumn days have kept vigil with that anxious household over which the Death Angel has brooded these long and dreary weeks. Sixty years ago, September 28, 1823, Mrs. Wood was born in Mansfield; and here, on September 28, 1847, she was married. Through childhood, youth and middle age she lived all the days of her life in Mansfield, and when the frosts of wintry age had just touched her brow, she folded her hands in peaceful rest and ended life's "little day" amid the scenes where it was begun. There are still some few remaining who remember her as the light-hearted, joyous maiden who tripped through our streets on her way to school in the far-off "long ago" scattering sunshine as she went; and some of the old-time friends with whom she mingled in her girlhood days are weeping sadly over the death of one whose presence always brought good cheer and merriment to the social throng. In the more dignified relations of wife and mother her home was the synonym of hospitality, and here it was that her true character was most eminently portrayed. While performing every duty toward those who were dependent upon her care, there was ever a warm, cozy nook for friends, and time for social chat. Always wearing a cheerful smile upon her face, she lightened the burdens of others by words of comfort or acts of kindness, and the memory of her charities will burn as sweet incense upon the altar of many a lowly heart whom she helped along life's rugged pathway. Especially was she devoted to the interests of her church, and long after disease had laid hold upon her she clung tenaciously to her duties as one of Christ's workers, and insisted upon keeping her post. But, little by little her strength departed, and each day her cheeks grew paler and her steps more feeble, until one by one the duties of home and society were relinquished, and nothing remained but days of anguish and nights of pain which were endured patiently even unto the end. Those of her own household know too well how lonely their future lives will be without the one who made of home "the dearest spot on earth" for them; but in the midst of all their grief they may find consolation in the thought that other wives and mothers may take courage from her example, who, out of many burdens and cares, gleaned the sunshine, and carried gladness where ever she went. We shall see her face on earth no more, but in the companionship of saints and angels she will recognize the forms of many whom she knew and loved in this world, and in that home "where dear families are gathered that were scattered on the wild", she is waiting for the weeping ones who may meet her "farther on". -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 06 December 1883, Vol. 34, No. 3]

Wyandt, Daniel -- Mr. Daniel Wyandt was born in Plymouth Township, Richland County, O., May 28, 1835, and died at his late residence June 16, 1915, aged 80 years and 18 days.  He was of a family of eight children, all of whom have passed away except one sister, Mrs. Luther Shutt, of this place.  His early years were spent on the farm.  In 1867, with his brother, he began his business career in Plymouth, which lasted over a period of forty-one years.  He afterwards served as president of the First National Bank.  He was a member of the Masonic order for nearly fifty years, and a faithful member and supporter of the Evangelical Lutheran church, regularly attending its services until a few months ago, when failing health would not permit.  He was married to Helen E. Earl in 1869, who died in 1893.  Four daughters were born to them, all of whom are still living and together with their families were present at his funeral, except Mrs. Arthur Smith and family, of California.  The eldest daughter, Luella, assumed the cares and duties of the family at her mother's death, and faithfully performed her part, keeping for the father and family the "Old Home", sacred with its memories of a happy family life, until the close of the aged father's days.  Honesty of purpose, uprightness of life, and integrity of character were Mr. Wyandt's traits.  Quiet and unassuming in his ways, his closing hours were in keeping with the serenity of his life among men.  After a comparatively short illness he quietly fell asleep, leaving the memory of a clean life as a sacred legacy to kindred and friends.  The funeral service was held at the family home on Sandusky Street, on Friday afternoon, June 18, conducted by Rev. G.C. Smith, of the Lutheran church, attended by many relatives, neighbors and friends, the bank officials acting as pall bearers.  The Masonic lodge was present in a body, conducting the burial service at the cemetery.  The singing, the many beautiful flowers, the respectful quiet that reigned in the town, through the closing of the business houses during the funeral service, for these thoughtful and kindly attentions to the sacred memory of a departed father, the children are thankful, to all who thus evinced their regard and sympathy.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  26 June 1915, Vol. 62, No. 31]

Wycoff, Ruth -- The venerable Mrs. Ruth Wycoff, widow of Tunis Wycoff, met her death by drowning last Tuesday evening near Moorland.  Just before a very heavy rain storm came on she left the village to go to a farm house a short distance out of town to get some butter, but never reached her destination.  She was not particularly missed, those in town supposing she was with friends in the country, and those on the farm that she was at home.  The first intimation that evil had befallen her was the startling news on Wednesday evening that she was dead.  The alarm was given by a little girl who going along the road where runs a small stream, found Mrs. Wycoff's bonnet, and a little farther along discovered the body in shallow water where it had lain dead for thirty hours.  It is supposed she fell from the foot log that crosses the stream, the water of which was higher than usual owing to the heavy rain.  Her age was 75 years, and her strength was not sufficient to exert much against her fate.  The remain were interred in the Moorland graveyard beside those of her husband.  She was an estimable woman, noted for Christianity, charity and benevolence, especially contributing her means to church and colleges.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  15 July 1876 as reprinted from the Wayne County (OH) Democrat]
