Hugh O. Hamblin
"FATAL ACCIDENT IN WALES - Wales - Last Wedneday William Lashbrooks was engaged in pulling stumps for C.S. King, in the town of Wales. During a little shower he stopped working, and Hugh O. Hamblin, Mr. Lashbrook's father-in-law, who was asssisting him, crept under a stump suspended on the stump machine about four feet high. Mr. Lashbrooks remonstrated with him, telling him there was danger, but Mr. Hamblin did not heed him and insisted on his coming under also. Shortly after a portion of the stump that the chains were fastened under split off, letting the stump fall, killing Mr. Hamblin instantly. Considerable sand had adhered to the stump, and as it was sandy underneath, there was not a bruise or mark upon his body and no look of pain upon his features. It is to be hoped that this will be a warning to all engaged in the same work. A watch dog highly prized by the family of C.S. King was also killed."

Ivah Harkness
"Mr. and Mrs. Samuel A. Harkness have the sympathy of the whole community in the sorrow that has come to them through the death of their daughter Ivah. Her illness was comparatively brief, lasting some two or three weeks only. Everything that medical skill and faithful nursing could do was done, but the malady was too strong, and the end came on Sunday afternoon. Ivah is the second daughter Mr. and Mrs. Harkness have lost within a little more than a year. She was but nineteen years of age, and her death seems doubly sad in view of the fact that she was to be married in two weeks. She was a member of the Congregational church, and an active worker in the Y. P. S. C. E., where she will be greatly missed. Unassuming in her manner, kindly and considerate in her disposition, with a smile and a pleasant greeting for every one, Ivah many many friends, who will long cherish her memory. The funeral services were held at the St. James Hotel on Tuesday afternoon, and were largely attended."

Frances M. Harrington
"Frances M. Harrington died Friday morning, January 6th, at the home of her son, H. M. Harrington, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, aged 79 years and 10 months. Her maiden name was Frink, being one of a family of nine children, two of whom survive her - a brother, Marshal D. Frink, of Port Huron and a sister, Mrs. Baker, of Chenango county, New York, living near the old homestead. Mrs. Harrington's early life was spent in New York state, where she was married to James S. Harrington, moving to St. Clair about forty-five years ago. Of late years her home has been with her only son, Herbert. By those who knew her well during the last years, Mrs. Harrington will always be remembered for her strong personality. It is very seldom given to men and women to maintain to as late a period in life the ready with, the keen insight into and the comprehension of life that was hers. Being, as the aged needs must by, merely a distant onlooker on life's battle, she caused in the mind of those who were about her no little wonder at the clearness with which she was and comprehended the progress of things. Never aggressive in assertion, never imperative in wish, she was till endowed with an energy and an activity which by example, but unconsciously, taught every one with whom she came in contact to do his duty. Her kindness, and kind she was, was not the kindness that spoils, that leaves the recipient weaker and more ready to need it the next time. Her eye was fixed on goals more distant, not on the immediate present, and when she helped, it was not so much to give - an easy and useless helping, but to make stronger. Though just and exacting, she was possessed of an abundance of cheerfulness that made her presence and conversation always cheering, and whatever were the trials and vicissitudes that came, she was cheerfully ready to take her share and silently to do her best. Though entirely unconscious of it, she exerted a very positive influence for good over her surroundings. Her burial took place in St. Clair Saturday morning, in the presence of relatives and friends, Mr. Blackford conducting the service at the grave."

David Hart
"David Hart, one of St. Clair county's oldest pioneers died suddenly of heart disease in the store of Hart & Koenig on Monday. He had been in his usual health and had just been talking with the junior member of the firm when without warning he fell from his chair and died without a struggle. Mr. Hart was born at some place on Long Island in the state of New York, July 7th, 1807, and when about three years of age his parents moved to Tempkins county in the same state where he lived until 1836, when he came to Michigan with an unmarried sister and together they took up a tract of two hundred and eighty acres of land in the township of China about six miles from St. Clair Here they lived and toiled together, converting the wild forest into a fertile and attractive farm. On the death of his sister about fourteen years ago Mr. Hart gave up the active duties of farm life and since that time has rented his farm and made his home with his nephews, John M. and Oscar. With the exception of a chronic heart trouble which finally resulted in his death, but which seldom gave him serious distress he always enjoyed excellent health, and was noted in his younger days for the amount of labor he could perform. He was a man of the most correct habits, greatly attached to his home and his near relatives, very charitable in an unobtrusive way, but with very little taste for politics and an absolute aversion for office holding. He was a genial companion and was very highly esteemed by all who knew him. The funeral services were held at the Congregational church yesterday afternoon, the Rev. Mr. Millard officiating and were attended by a large number of the residents of St. Clair and the adjoining townships."

Oswald S. Hart
"Oswald S. Hart, to whose death reference was made last week, was born in the state of New Jersey about forty years ago. When very young he came with his parents to Michigan, and has lived here ever since. From early boyhood he has lived in this city, making his home with General and Mrs. Brown. He was for many years in the employ of the late John L. Agens, but has been in business for himself. The aged father of Mr. Hart survives him. 'Oswald,' as he was familiarly called was a general favorite. Quiet and unassuming in his manner, and somewhat reserved, he yet seemed to be everybody's friend. There was that about him that inspired confidence and trust; and those who gave him their confidence found him always loyal and true. As a business man Mr. Hart was careful and prudent in his methods, and attentive to all the details of his work. His customers found him always courtous and obliging. He was a member of Palmer Lodge, Knights of Pythias, and at the time of his death held the office of Master of the Exchequer. He was also attached to the Uniform Rank of that Order, and was buried with Pythian honors, a column of his Rank under Capt. Ingles acting as escort. The funeral services, which were held in the congregational church on Thursday last were largely attended by members of Palmer Lodge and by citizens generally Rev.

Robertson, of Detroit, and Miss Frances Higley, of Ypsilanti, Mrs. Higley's daughters, and Mr. Leigh Robertson, the grandson. The interment was in the city cemetery. In the death of Mrs. Higley the last of the charter members of the Congregational church of St. Clair has passed away. She was among the membership of the church when it was first organized. The church was Congregational then Presbyterian, and flourishes now as Congregational again. Mrs. Higley was born at Newport, N. H., in 1816. She came to St. Clair at the age of 16 years, and lived here, surrounded by those who loved her, until a few years ago when she moved to Ypsilanti. Mrs. Hiram W. Robertson, of Detroit, and Miss Frances Higley, of Ypsilanti, are the surviving members of the family. Those 82 years of Mrs. Higley's life had been filled with all that ends to nobility of character. She was a woman of faith and honor and possessed high mental attainments. She died rich in the respect and love of all who knew her, and in the tender recollections and lasting gratitude of those whom her many acts of benevolence had blessed. The Ann Arbor Democrat, speaking of the death of Mrs. Higley, said: 'Mrs. Nancy Higley, of 109 S. Huron street, died at her home Tuesday morning from a stroke of paralysis that came on her Sunday morning. The deceased was to her 82nd year and had moved here from St. Clair several years ago. She leaves two daughters, Mrs. H. W. Robertson, of Detroit, and Miss Frances Higley, of this city. The remains will be taken to St. Clair for internment. The deceased had a most lovely character, having aided many, who could not afford to do so, to gain a higher education. She was prominently identified with charitable and church work, and in her Ypsilanti loses one of its most esteemed and highly respected ladies.'"

Eugene W. Hill
"Eugene W. Hill, whose death occurred in this city last Wednesday was born near Mt. Clemens in 1846, but has been a resident of St. Clair since he was about 3 years old. From the time he was 16 he sailed with his father until, at the early age of 22, he became master of the John A. Saunders, which position he occupied until about 1877, when he and his father bought the Minnie Davis. In 1888 he bought an interest in the barge E. J. Vance, which he sailed for one year, and traded for the ill fated Midnight, which was wrecked in the terrific storm that swept over the great lakes Nov. 28, 1890 and cast ashore between Oscoda and Ta was a total loss. The papers narrating the event speak of Capt. Hill as being rescued in a terrible condition, as a result of which, his health was completely shattered. He sailed the schooner Crosthwaite for two seasons, but last season, he was not able to go aboard. In the latter part of August he was taken with a hemorrhage, which so far confined him to his house, that he was only able to come downtown twice since. For 6 months previous to his death he had not left the house and his disease was of such a nature that he could not lie abed, so he was compelled to sit in a chair, in which he died. Brave man that he was, through it all, he never complained; was patient, cheerful and spoke of his death without any apprehensions. The funeral was held at the Methodist church, Saturday, at 2 o'clock, Dr. McEldowney officiating in his usual effective manner.

C. N. Howell
"The sad intelligence has been received her of the death yesterday morning of C. N. Howell of St. Louis., brother-in-law of Mrs. E. J. Mather. He had been in failing health for about two years from the effects of that almost universal malady, la grippe, and his illness assumed a more alarming phase a few months ago when a southern trip was planned in the hope that the disease might be arrested in its course. He became worse, however, and the trip had to be abandoned. Mrs. E. J. Mather started for St. Louis on Tuesday, but not in time to reach there before Mr. Howell's death. Mr. Howell leaves a wife and three children, the former, well known in St. Clair previous to her marriage in 1881, as Miss Nellie Kitton."

Rev. Thomas Gentle Huckle
"After an illness, continued with varying intermissions for considerable time the Rev. Thomas Gentle Huckle, late pastor of the M. E. church of this place, passed away last Monday between the hours of 5 and 6 a.m. Though skillful physicians and loving friends, with his stricken wife, bent patiently over him through anxious hours of pain, he could not be retained to his family and the church. For some two or three years his health had been giving away, having first been broken by a painful accident from which he had hardly recovered when it was repeated. The sufferings so trenched on his vitality that he was ill prepared for subsequent hardship to which he was called. Deceased was born in Luton, England, June 6, 1855, and was therefore aged thirty three years and nine months, lacking two days, at the time of his death. He was the son of religious parents, who are still living, and was himself converted and united with the Wesleyan church at an early age. When a youth of only sixteen years he was made a local preacher - his father occupying the same position before him -and since then has been engaged in the duties of a Watchman on the walls of Zion. His education was obtained at a private school, spending a final year, however, at Sunderland College, but being an unremitting student, he continued to store his mind with useful knowledge. After serving the novitiate of a local preacher he became what is known as second preacher, spending three years in the Isle of Wight, the loveliest spot of all Britian, from which he removed to Raunds, Wellsbury Circuit, where he met and married Miss Bertha Walker the latter part of September, 1880. In December of the following year, having advised with Dr. J. M. Buckley, then attending the Ecumenical Methodist Conference in London, they came to this country bringing their first child, three others having since been born on American soil. The summer previous to their arrival the destructive fires of 1880 swept Sanilac and Huron counties and at the ensuing conference Port Hope was left to be supplied. Applying to the Presiding Elder of the Port Huron District he was sent to that point where they remained three years enduring many privations. Thence he was stationed at Imlay City whence after two years he was stationed over the M. E. church of this city and was consequently in the midst of his third year,. During his second year his eyes became very troublesome for which he sought treatment in Detroit. He often labored beyond his strength and soon after the erection of the M. E. Parsonage constitutional difficulties appeared which, seeming grave, he sought the sanitarium at Clifton Springs, N. Y. where surgical operations were performed, after which he returned to his work. In a few weeks the difficulty returned which induced him to consult the medical skill of the metropolis. Journeying thither he took a berth in the Brooklyn M. E. Hospital where another operation was performed which was called very successful and feeling much improved he started for home, overjoyed with the hope that he was rid of his physical trouble and that he could now engage unhindered in his chosen work. The journey home is believed to have been taken before his strength was sufficiently restored and he never entered the pulpit or appeared in a religious meeting thereafter but was summoned, no doubt, not unprepared, before the Assembly of the First born in Heaven. The stricken widow and mother of four fatherless children, still so young, have the united sympathy of all who are aware of the circumstances. The funeral, from the M. E. church, at 11 a.m. yesterday was largely attended by both ministers and people. Several ministerial brethren were present from a distance, the Rev. L. P. Davis representing the Preachers' meeting of Detroit. - Card of Thanks - Mrs. Huckle desires to express gratitude most sincerely to her many friends for their numerous acts of exceeding kindness and thoughtfulness during her late trial. She would convey the assurance that Mr. Huckle was constantly full of expressions of gratitude for their goodness and often signified his pleasure that it was his rare good fortune to be among this people in his time of trouble. She hopes to retain in the future the friendship of all whose sympathies she now enjoys, as she expects to remain in St. Clair. - Bertha Huckle"

June 18, 1948 - Aug. 20, 1999
In Memory - "His playful jokes and childish pranks, made me wonder if he was crazy.
He sometimes skipped out of work to eat, but was no where close to lazy.
He had the most amazing eyes, like a crisp blue autumns sky.
But they'll never shine the same no more, he's gone, he said goodbye.
The cancer invaded his body, and hit him like a rock.
But he tried not to show his future plans, were now held under a lock.
He battled so hard like a true soldier, through many, many years.
Then last year he was defeated, but never showed his tears.
He's been gone for about a year, almost to the day.
There's so much I wish we could have done, so much stilll left to say.
I cherish all my memories, the good times and the bad.
I lost the greatest uncle, my friend and my stand in Dad.
Sadly missed by his nieces, Courtney, Katie, Megan and Ashley Hyde."
