Weaver, Bert -- Bert Weaver, aged about 16 years, youngest son of Mr. & Mrs. W.E. Weaver, of near Davis, died Monday, in Wayne County, from the effects of a kick in the stomach by a horse, July 15.  Some hopes for his recovery had been entertained up to last Saturday, when he took to vomiting, and gradually sank, until death relieved his intense suffering Monday forenoon.  He had been working for Emerson Wilson on a farm near Orrville, and had not been home since last spring.  On Saturday, July 15, the boy went to the field to bring the horses, preparatory to a day's work.  Breakfast being prepared, and Bert and not made his appearance, a search revealed him lying unconscious in the stable.  An examination by a physician, who was immediately summoned, showed the unmistakable marks of a horse's hoofs in the region of the stomach.  For several days he lay in an unconscious state, but gradually rallied from the stupor, although suffering considerable pain.  The past week he showed signs of improvement, but since Saturday death was looked for at any time.  The remains were brought home Tuesday, by the grief stricken parents who were at his bedside since the accident, and the funeral took place Wednesday at 10 a.m. from the family home.  Rev. J. Montgomery conducted appropriate services at Bunker Hill and interment was made at the same place.  This is the second son of Mr. & Mrs. Weaver to die as the result of violence in a little more than six months, and the mother is almost prostrated.  The bereft family have the sympathy of the whole community in their dark hour of sorrow.  --  [Butler Enterprise:  04 August 1905, Vol. 17, No. 26]

Weaver, daughter of Adam and Susannah Harley Aumend, was born in Crawford County, O., May 6, 1834, and died April 13, 1915, aged 80 years, 11 months and 7 days.  March 9, 1857, she was united in marriage to Mr. George Weaver, and three children were born, two of whom died in childhood years, and the third died March 11, 1906, at the age of forty-eight years.  Mr. & Mrs. Weaver enjoyed the privilege of celebrating the 50th. anniversary of their wedding, after which Mr. Weaver died, May 16, 1907.  Mrs. Weaver continued to live on the farm for a few years after the death of her husband, then lived with a sister, Mrs. R.R. Ross, and for the past two years and a half has made her home with Mr. & Mrs. Elmer H. Ervin.  During her last brief sickness she often expressed not only her readiness to die but also her earnest desire to go, she being the last to die of a family of five brothers and sisters.  The beautiful character of Mrs. Weaver is partly revealed in the fact that besides her own children she partly raised and made a home for seven others, all of whom have grown up to call her blessed.  She was a devout Christian, having been a life-long member of the McKendree M.E. church, and was one of the staunchest members and most faithful supporters to the last.  Of her it may truly be said, "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth:  Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors;  and their works do follow them."  The funeral services were held at the McKendree Church, conducted by her pastor, the Rev. Chas. F. Mott, at 10 o'clock, Thursday morning, April 15.  Interment was made in Greenlawn Cemetery in Plymouth.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  24 April 1915, Vol. 62, No. 22]

Weaver, William -- William Weaver, of Orchard Street, died Monday at 9 o'clock of paralysis.  He was bout 25 years of age and formerly worked in the tube works.  He leaves a wife.  He was a member of Court Mansfield, No. 1455, I.O.O.F.  He will probably be buried at Crestline.  [Semi-Weekly News:  29 December 1896, Vol. 12, No. 102]

Weaver, William -- William Weaver was born in Rockingham, Rockingham County, Va., Dec. 6th., 1798, and died in Bellville, O., Aug. 28th., 1879, aged 80 years, 8 months and 22 days.  At the age of 14, father Weaver journeyed to Fairfield County, Ohio, where he resided five years.  In 1817 he removed to Perry Township, Richland County, and married Catharine Stout, to whom were born ten children, six boys and four girls.  In 1825 he bought a farm in Jefferson Township, where he lived an honored and esteemed tiller of the soil for nearly half a century.  Eight years ago he removed to town, where he resided at the time of his death.  He was married three times.  His second wife's name was Susan Marks;  his third wife was Nancy Bowser, to whom he was married March 9th., 1868.  Father Weaver was known as an honest, upright, good man and citizen, whose integrity was unimpeachable.  He was of a quiet, retiring disposition, and a man of few words;  and all who knew him loved him for what he was as a friend and citizen.  for many years he was a firm believer in the doctrine of Universalism, and was a frequent attendant at the Universal Church, although he never became a member.  This blessed faith cheered and strengthened him in health, and was his support and comfort in his dying hour.  The writer of this visited him during his illness and found him calm, resigned and ready to die.  His faith in God's promises in Christ, in a full and complete salvation from sin to him, was a certainty "As in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive".  For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;  who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.'  At his request, the pastor of the Universalist church, Rev. C.A. Lander, attended the funeral on Saturday, Aug. 30.  A large and attentive audience attested their esteem and love for the deceased.  He leaves a wife and ten children, who greatly lament his departure.  May God bless and comfort the sorrowing in our prayer.  -- C.A.L.  [Ohio Liberal:  10 September 1879]

Milner Stretton, who received a letter from the late Mr. Webb's son, who resides in America, informing him of his death.  Mr. Web was a distinguished scholar and a man of great ability.  He had resided many years in France, and the history of that country, as well as the language was as familiar to him as that of his own.  He had gone to America for a time expecting to return to this neighborhood in a year or two, and settle down for the rest of his life.  Mr. Webb had large expectations from his brother, Thomas Webb Esq., a gentleman of great fortune, who resides in Italy, in case of him pre-deceasing him.  The late Mr. Webb has contributed several valuable papers on various subjects that are in possession of his friend at Stretton.  He contributed largely to the press at one period of his life.  The funeral took place on the 5th. inst. at Bellville, and the service was conducted by the Rev.

Wentz, Mrs. Valentine -- Mrs. Valentine Wentz, of 213 East First Street, met with a fatal accident about noon today.  The unfortunate woman had been to the sewage disposal works, east of the city, where her husband was at work and had taken his dinner to him.  In returning to her home she came across the field leading from the disposal works to the Pennsylvania railroad, and started up the track to First Street.  No. 9 on the P.F. was about due and was coming along at the time she stepped upon the track.  Engineer Darby, who was at the throttle, saw Mrs. Wentz as soon as she got on the track and blew the whistle.  She seemed to pay no attention to this and he blew it a second time and several times after, but to no avail.  He reversed the engine, but before the passenger was brought to a standstill it had struck the woman and hurled her to the side of the track.  The engineer states that the last time he blew the whistle, Mrs. Wentz took notice and turned her head about half way around but seemed so frightened that she was unable to move.  The train was soon stopped and the dead woman was brought to the Pennsylvania baggage room and Dr. Bushnell was summoned.  An examination was made and it was found that her neck and back were broken and that she was deeply cut at several places on her body.  Her right leg was also crushed and a scalp wound inflicted on the left side of her head.  She had been warned several times about going along the railroad tracks, in returning from the disposal works, and especially with reference to walking on the ties as she was accustomed to do.  At the time she was killed she carried a large umbrella and it is thought that this served to deaden the sound of the train.  The body was afterwards removed to the undertaking establishment of Wappner Bros., on South Park Street, where is was prepared for burial and then taken to the Wentz home on East First street.  Mrs. Wentz was about sixty years of age and has been married twice.  Her first husband was John Growmiller and she was the mother of two children, a son and a daughter.  The daughter died about three years ago and her son, Philip Growmiller, lives in Cleveland.  She was born in Alsace, France, and has lived in the country about thirty-five years.  After the death of her first husband she was married to Valentine Wentz, with whom she has lived until her death.  [Mansfield News:  01 August 1901, Vol. 17, No. 129] *An additional article about this death can be found in the 02 August 1901 edition of the Mansfield News.  And an additional notice of this death can be found in the 03 August 1901 edition of Mansfield News.
