Charlotte St. Barnard
"Died, Oct. 18th 1892, at Clarkston, Mich., Charlotte St Barnard, widow of Geo. St. Barnard, in her 77th year. Accompanied by her children, she was brought to this city, were funeral services, conducted by the Rev. Mr. Freeman, were held in the Baptist Church, Thursday, at 11 a.m. After thirty eight years of widowhood she now sleeps peacefully by her husband's side. She was one of the early pioneers, and by her death another of the few remaining links that bind the present with the past is severed. Ever the friend of the friendless, her home for many years was the orphan's refuge. How many are yet living to attest to the kindness of her great heart is not known. And now, after many months of great suffering, during which she became helpless and speechless, she has gone to her reward. Freed from all cares and tears and pain, We left her sleeping - Under the rustling brown and gold, - In god's own keeping."

Kate St. Barnard
"Passed away, from her home in St. Clair, Thursday April 28, Kate St. Barnard, daughter of the late Capt. Alexander St. Barnard. She was the eldest of a family of twelve brothers and sisters, ten of whom survive her. The funeral was held in the Episcopal church of which she was a member. The Order of the Eastern Star marched in a body and officiated at the grave. On the casket were many beautiful floral offerings, tributes of love and respect from relatives and friends. Miss St. Barnard was possessed of a bright mind, and keen intellect, and will long be missed from the circle of friends who best understood her. - There is no death! the stars go down To rise upon some other shore, And bright in Heaven's jeweled crown They shine forevermore. And when with bowed and breaking heart, With sable garb, and silent tread We bear their senseless dust to rest - We say that they are dead. They are no dead! they have but passed Beyond the mists that blind us here, Into a new and broader life - Where every mystery is clear. And ever near us-tho'unseen, the dear immortal spirits tread - For all the boundless universe Is Life!-there are no dead! - The relatives of Miss St. Barnard wish to return thanks to all those neighbors and friends who were so kind and helpful to them during their late bereavement; they also extend their thanks to the choir who furnished the music for the funeral services."

Jerry Sanford
"We miss you, Jerry -
To the Editor: I cannot believe that, after being in business for 25 years in Richmond, someone didn't write something nice about Jerry Sanford, owner of Hensch Memorial Chapel, when he passed away last month. The only thing that was in the paper was a small death notice and nothing printed about all the good he did for anyone in 25 years as a Richmond businessman. Jerry was a good friend of ours for 26 years, and we celebrated all of our birthdays together, also Christmas, Thanksgiving, Good Old Days and any other reason that we could find to celebrate. There were nice cool trips on his boat that included lunches and picnics with our Richmond friends. During Good Old Days, his cars could be seen riding up and down the streets where he provided transportation to the people at Medilodge, so they could watch the parade in special chairs he had reserved for them in front of the funeral home. Even the ones in wheelchairs came. He had special parking places in his lot for all his friends and chairs for everyone, so they could watch the parade, just like box seats at a ballgame. He also served on the Good Old Days Committee. Though he wasn't a veteran, he helped the vets at the VFW in Richmond with all their projects, donations for the kids at the Christmas and Easter parties and helped with the lunches for the workers and is sadly missed by all. His special recording of patriotic music was played at funeral for veterans, and American flags (instead of funeral flags) were placed on the coach at all veterans' funerals. He provided jobs for many young people and several served their apprenticeship at his funeral home. Many of them are morticians today. We shared in our sorrows when we lost our relatives and he lost his, the untimely death of his sister 5 years ago and his brother, Max, who passed away in February of this year. Jerry seemed to always know the right words to say in those troubled times. After Max's death, Jerry just wasn't the same. He seemed to be very depressed. Somehow, we just didn't think of people in that profession as dying, so we were shocked when we were notified of his sudden death on May 5. We must try to remember all of the good things, he did and carry on all of his good work as he showed us how Rest in peace, Jerry, WE MISS YOU. Mike and Bernie Tomtishen and family, New Baltimore"

Mary A. Saph
“Died Suddenly - Mary A. Saph, widow of the late Arnold Saph, died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. T. L Kilts, 409 Stanton Street, at nine o'clock Tuesday evening, 90 years. Mrs. Saph had been in her usual health and ate a hearty meal at supper time. She was around the house during the evening, but on retiring complained of feeling unwell and died before the arrival of a physician. Corner Falk was called and after a consultation with the doctor came the the conclusion that she died of fatty degeneration of the heart. Mrs. Saph was born in Wiltshire, Eng. in 1812, and came to Canada with her parents when 17 years of age. She afterwards removed to Indiana, and settled in St. Clair in 1845. At the time the county seat was removed from St. Clair she came with her husband to Port Huron and has since resided here. She leaves three children, Mrs. T. L. Kilets and A. E. Saph, of Port Huron, and V. A. Saph of Marine City. The funeral will be held from the house at three o'clock Thursday afternoon. It is probable that Mrs. Anna L. Gillspie will preach the funeral sermon.”

John A. Sawher
"
Mayor of St. Clair dies - Sawher devoted himself to improving city - By Bill Bunn - Times Herald - St. Clair - Mayor John A. Sawher, who died Tuesday of cancer, was as painstaking about his community leadership as about his personal life. "He took everything to heart," Mayor Pro Tem Bernard E. Kuhn said. "He was honest, and he was fair. He loved St. Clair. John and I, in the last five years, talked almost every day about ways St. Clair could be improved." Mr. Sawher and Kuhn both were re-elected for two years in November. Mr. Sawher, mayor since 1983, "was a very meticulous man, in the way he dressed, the way he signed papers -- everything," Kuhn said. "When John gave a speech, he really put a lot of time and effort into it .. and he got his points across," he said. Mr. Sawher, 73, owned a gasoline service station before entering city government. "He was a proud man," Kuhn said. "Even when it was raining, he was out there cleaning the blacktop because he wanted his business to look as nice as it could." G. Alfred West was a coach when Mr. Sawher played football and basketball at St. Clair High School. Though West did not guess then that Mr. Sawher would become a community leader, "he was always friendly and popular with his fellow students," West said. "He was always community minded," said West, who later became a golfing partner of Mr. Sawher's. "He was always interested in making it a better place to live." Gerald M. Emig, who later was another of Mr. Sawher's golfing partners, was a year behind Mr. Sawher at St. Clair High. "John was quite an outgoing personality," Emig said. "He was quite a friendly person to everyone." Mr. Sawher also could be blunt, Emig said. "He was quite an outspoken person." But after Mr. Sawher joined city government, "I don't know anybody who did a more exemplary job." Emig said. "He was a good mayor in being interested in the problems of the people." Kunh said he will become mayor, and the city council must appoint someone within 30 days to fill Kuhn's 3rd Ward seat. Both will serve for the remainder of the terms."

Her quiet, unassuming manner, and her patient, even temperament made friends for her everywhere. "quiet faithfulness" is perhaps the phrase that best sums up her character. At the age of 17 she graduated from the High School, in a class that numbered eighteen. She was a good student, capable and conscientious in all her work. She was a member of the Congregational church and an active worker in the Y. P. S. C. E. and in the Sunday School. Here as elsewhere she will be greatly missed. The funeral service were held in the Congregational church on Monday afternoon, and a very large procession followed the remains to the cemetery. - "Sleep on, beloved, sleep and take thy rest; We love thee well, but Jesus loves thee best." - Resolution of Condolence. - At a regular meeting of the Ladies Aid Society of the Congregational church the following resloutions were adopted: Once again it has pleased our Heavenly Father to remove by death from our church one of its most esteemed young members, Miss Meta Sewart, Resolved, That to the father, mother, brothers, and sister, we tender our heartfelt sympathy and condolence in their great bereavement, Resolved, That these resolutions be inscribed in the records of our Ladies Aid Society and a copy be sent to the family of our lamented sister."

"In loving memory of Dr. Stephen Shawbitz who passed away 1 year ago today, January 16, 1999 - We think of you in silence, We often speak your name, But all we have are memories. And your picture in a frame. They say memories are golden, Well, maybe that is true, But we never wanted memories, We only wanted you. A million times we needed you, A thousand times we've cried, If love could have saved you, You never would have died. If we could have one lifetime wish, One dream that could come true, We'd pray to God with all our heart For yesterday and for you, Very much missed, but always in our hearts - Dawn Robbins, brother David Shawbitz, family, friends and patients."

"The sad news of the death of Mrs. Chas. Sheldon reached this city yesterday morning. She had been in poor health for a number of years, and last Monday, accompanied by Dr. W. E. Burtless, she went to the Grace Hospital, in Detroit, where on Wednesday an operation was performed, from the effects of which she died yesterday. A message was received stating that if her husband desired to see his wife before death, he must come immediately. Mr. Sheldon left hurriedly and drove in all haste to Lenox, in hope that he might catch the train there, but he was doomed to disappointment; for the train has been gone some time. Mrs. Sheldon had been advised that the operation would leave her in a critical condition and she had left at home a letter of instructions to be opened in case anything serious resulted. Mrs. Alice Sheldon, who was born in this city, was 31 years old, and was the youngest daughter of John L. Agens, a well known old gentleman, who has resided in this city upwards of 40 years. Mrs. Sheldon was highly esteemed by her large circle of friends, and her sad death is a severe below (blow) to her relatives and all who knew her. She leaves a husband and two small daughters, and aged father and three sisters, viz: Mrs. H. M. Harington and Mrs. C. G. Wescott, of this city, and Mrs. F. B. Sutton, a resident of Atlanta, Ga."

Diodorus Sheldon
"Diodorus Sheldon, the most prominent of the old citizens of St. Clair if indeed he may not be called the most prominent citizen who has ever made this place his residence died last Thursday morning at the advanced age of 78 years. He was born in Hamburg, New York, December 10, 1814, of New England parents. He was left an orphan at the age of ten years. At sixteen years he became a tanner's apprentice and in about five years mastered the business. From that time for a number of years he was engaged in various business enterprises; part of the time foreman in a large tannery in Port Huron, and superintending the construction of a large tannery on the river just above St. Clair. In 1846 he came to St. Clair and built his first tannery, which has been in continuous operation from that time to the present, some of the men now employed having been there over thirty years. He built up and for many years carried on a very extensive brick making establishment. He built and owned the First National bank building and many other principal business places in St. Clair, always giving employment to a large number of men and no panics or business revulsions ever prevented his being on hand with ready cash to pay his men at every pay day. By his sympathy, generosity and uniform kindness he endeared himself to the hearts of his employees. He was several times mayor of St. Clair, and filled, with credit to himself and satisfaction to his constituents, many positions of public trust. He was married in 1843 to Miss Grace Abernethy, by whom he had four children, two of whom are still living. Mary E., widow of Ludovic King, and Charles, who succeeds to the estate and business of his father. Mr. Sheldon was not a member of any church, but contributed liberally to the support of all the religious denominations and in a modest and unobtrusive manner was ever ready to relieve cases of distress and to satisfy the various appeals which were made to him in behalf of deserving objects of charity. In 1885, Mr. Sheldon showed signs of failing health and with a view of relieving himself from care he transferred the active management of his business to his son Charles who had already been associated with him in a business capacity for number of years. Since then he has led a quiet life, retaining his general interest in matters going on about him and enjoying the exercise of all his faculties except that of speech which through paralysis of the vocal organs had been imperfect for three or four years previous to his death. Mr. Sheldon was always ready to contribute of his means, his influence and his efforts to every enterprise which promised to benefit the city and probably no man who has ever lived here has done more to benefit the place than he has. The funeral services were held at his residence on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock the Rev. W. G. Stonex, officiating, and were attended by nearly all the older and more prominent residents of the place who came to pay the last sad tribute to the memory of a worthy citizen. A strikingly appropriate feature of the funeral services was the presence of his former employees in a body six of the oldest of them, namely C. H. Leach, Michael Kelly, John Kelly, F. Winter, Adam Burkhart and Chris Buechler acting as bearers. Among those present from out of town were his grandson Sheldon King, of Detroit, Wm. Abernethy, John Nesbit and Wm. Nesbit of Sarnia, R. S. Patterson, wife and daughter, and Miss U. King, of Port Huron. The remains were laid at rest in the city cemetery."

Donald L. Shephard
"Donald L. Shephard, 65, former owner of the Empire Tool Co. near Memphis, died Sunday in Martin Place Hospital, Madison Heights, following a lengthy illness. Mr. Shephard, 2902 Miltary St., Port Huron, started Empire tool in 1939 with $365. He turned it into a multi-million dollar operation, with sales representation in almost every industrialized port in the world, before retiring last December. The company was sold to United Tool Co., Livonia. Under Mr. Shephard's direction, Empire Manufactured several tools for all types of manufacturing operations, including a cutoff blade for automatic screw machines that Mr. Shephard patented. Ferris E. Lucas, executive director of the National Sheriff Association, called Mr. Shephard a fine man, a great sportsman and a gentleman. "He was a friend to everyone," Lucas said. Harry Raymond said, "He was a very wonderful man." Raymond, a friend and part-owner of Fenton and Raymond Excavating, Memphis, said that Mr. Shephard did a lot for the Memphis community including working with the Lion's Club and the School District's parent booster club. Mr. Shephard was born in Detroit, Nov. 1, 1914, and was graduated from Grosse Pointe High School in 1928. He sold insurance after attending Albion College, then joined the Snyder Tool and Engineering Co., Detroit, as assistant purchasing agent. Four years later he began Empire tool. Mr. Shephard received an honorary doctorate degree from the Florida Institute of Technology. A Donald L. Shephard Old Car Museum was opened last year at the institute and features vintage automobiles donated by him. Mr. Shephard was a member of the Black River Boat Club, the Valley of Detroit Consistory, the Moslem Temple Shrine, the Elks Clu, the Port Huron Golf Club, the Moose Lodge, the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club and the First Presbyterian Church of Delray Beach. Mr. Shephard was a former resident of Boynton Beach, Fla., where he developed the first subdivision trailer park in which residents bought their own lots. He owned several other businesses, including a Firestone Tire Store, the Boynton Beach Star newspaper, an engineering firm, a marina, a country club, and insurance, construction and realty companies. Mr. Shephard is survived by his wife of eight years, the former Helen I. Rogers; five daughters, Mrs. Ward (Carol Ann) Sussex, of Clarkston, Mrs. Merritt (Judy) Oakes, of Mount Clemens, Mrs. William (Donna) Galbraith, of North Street, Mrs. Christopher (Lyn) Cudia, of Detroit, and Mrs. Ellen Corkins, of Port Huron; two sons, Donald L. Shephard Jr., of Port Huron, and J. P. Rodgers, of Wellston, Ohio; 18 grandchildren; one great-grandchild; a sister, Mrs. Martin Thieme, of Del Ray Beach, Fla.; and two brothers, Gorve, of Boynton Beach, and Raymond, of Port Huron. A memorial service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday in the First Congregational Church. The Rev. Leroy M. Kutz will officiate. Cremation will be in White Chapel. Memorials to the Donald L. Shephard memorial fund may be made through the Hubert V. Lucas Funeral Home."

"Donald Shephard, an uncommon man - Donald L. Shephard was often described as the epitome of the Horatio Alger story. Forced to drop out of college during the Depression, he became purchasing agent for a tool company at 19, then left at 23 to set up his own business with his savings of $365. Within a year, he had made his first million dollars. But Don Shephard was never one to stand pat. He plowed his earnings back into his company--and, ultimately, into companies. Changing fortunes forced him to take partners into his business in the early years, then to buy them out--a process that several times brought him to the brink of insolvency as he mortgaged all he had to keep the business afloat. Finally, the tide turned for good and Don Shephard was able to concentrate on his Empire Tool Co., by now moved from Detroit to Memphis. As the business prospered, Shephard constantly sought new challenges in a variety of business enterprises. One of them was a business in Florida for which he bought a Port Huron-Sarnia ferryboat to ship goods between Florida and the Bahamas. By the time Shephard sold Empire and readied for retirement last December, Empire operations had become not only nationwide but worldwide--the fulfillment of a dream when he chose to name his company empire. That was his success; the tragedy of Don Shephard's life was that he was granted no time to enjoy the travel and leisure activities--and maybe the dabbling in an interesting business here and there--that he had looked forward to in retirement. Many who knew Don Shephard will say that he was not a retirement kind of person, in any event--that he lived life to the fullest when he was busy and challenged. If such was the case, he lived a full life indeed. Our condolences go out to Don Shephard's widow, to his seven children and to his many grandchildren. Though he thought of himself as a common man, he was truly a giant--an uncommon man who left a proud and rare legacy to his community, to his industry and to his family."

James Simpson
"James Simpson, aged 84 years, died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. E. R. Short, on the gravel road, on Sunday afternoon. The cause of his death was pneumonia. Mr. Simpson was a pioneer of St. Clair county and once owned a lime kiln in Port Huron. Five sons and two daughters survive him."

"Old Pioneer Gone - James Simpson Was Identified With the Early Interests of Port Huron - James Simpson, who has lived at the fork of the River and Gravel roads, above the toll gate, for more than forty years, passed quietly away at 1:40 o'clock Sunday afternoon, at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Kate Short. Mr. Simpson was born in Aberdeen, Scotland. His father, with four boys, of whom James was the eldest, came to Port Huron in the fall of 1835, and James engaged with the Steam Mill company, Sheely & Lewis for $8 per month, and worked for them for two years, when he met with an accident that nearly cost him his life. He was caught in the fly wheel and one leg was so badly crushed that it made him a cripple. As soon as he was able to be about he bought a fine pair of horses and went to teaming, which he followed for several years. No lime had every been burned in Port Huron and a lime kiln was needed, so he built one on the banks of Black River opposite where the post office stands now, and supplied the town and vicinity with lime for several years, when he sold out to Jedediah Spalding. About this time he had another narrow escape from death. He had become a member of the first fire company organized in this city. Fire broke out in the storehouse owned by Mr. Dowling and while carrying out the goods a keg of gunpowder was discovered in close proximity to the fire. Mr. Simpson and Henry Oavis sized the keg between them and started to run out with it when it blew up. Both men were badly injured, but Oavis had to be carried home on a stretcher. Amos James and David Bryce were near by. Mr Bryce said as soon as he heard that there was a keg of powder in the fire he started to run, but was not quick enough. Something struck his back and knocked him down. Mr. Simpson boarded for a number of years with Mrs. John Howard. He married Mary Ann Carter, from Goderich, who was working for Mrs. Howard. She died 26 years ago, leaving seven children, five boys and two girls, all of whom are still living near the old home with nice children growing up. In 1853, after Mr. Howard's mill burned on the flats above the toll gate, Mr. Simpson traded ten acres of land on Howard street for the old site of the mill, including 130 acres of land. Two years later he bought 80 acres of land of Alexander Ashley, on the east side of his other purchase, and moved the old red house, that had been the steam mill boarding house, from the flats to the present site of the old homestead, where it stood for 25 or 30 years, until replaced by the present house. His father was a Scotch Presbyterian. He attended the only churches there were at that time, the Episcopal and the Congregational, and later the Methodist, his wife being a member of that church. Mrs. Simpson died 26 years ago, leaving a family of seven children, five boys and two girls. For many years he was so deaf that he could not hear and did not attend church. Mrs. Howard says that he was a very straight forward, honorable young man and highly respected by all who knew him. He leaves an estate of 150 acres of land, unincumbered (sic), at the old homestead, with no will, but a statement to his children of how he wanted it arranged, which is as good as law to them."

Mrs. Eugene Smith
"Breaking Earth's Bonds. And the Summons Came Wholly Unexpected. - It was given out on Monday that Mrs. Eugene Smith was suffering from a very serious illness and that but little hope was given by her physician for her recovery. Mr. McGraw, of Detroit, was summoned during the afternoon and in consultation during the evening gave the same opinion. The good woman passed out from her earthly life on Tuesday morning the cause of her death having been a ruptured blood vessel in the brain bringing about congestion of the lungs. Mrs. Smith was nearly 56 years of age, having been born Feb. 7, 1835, at Bedford, N. H. She came to Michigan on a visit to her people in 1854 and was married to Eugene Smith in 1855. Mrs. H. S. Dale, Geo. B. and Fred. H. Smith are their surviving children. Mr. Smith died in March, 1888. Of the early residents of this section none were better or more favorably known than were both Mr. and Mrs. Smith. Their early associations here were in part with the Indians and the belongings of a pioneer life. Of their immediate neighbors for many years, the families of Dr. Cornell, John E. Kitton and S. H. Woodruff, but two of the original members survive, Mrs. Cornell and Mrs. Woodruff. Mrs. Smith was of a somewhat retiring disposition and yet a most earnest worker in every good cause as well as that of the Congregational church of which she was a member, and in all her acquaintance in St. Clair the universal sentiment of highest esteem has prevailed, but in no place has she left a record of a more noble service than in her home and with every member of her own family. The funeral service will be attended at the Congregational church this afternoon. - We know not what it is, dear, this sleep so deep and still; The folded hands, the awful calm, the cheeks so pale and chill; The lids that will not lift again, though we may call and call. The strange white solitude of peace that settles over all."

The deceased was born March 4, 1869 and at the time of her death was between 22 and 23 years of age. Though reared on the farm yet a great portion of her latter years were spent in this city. She was a consistent member of the Lutheran church, regular in her attendance, liberal in her contributions and active in church work. In that society it is safe to say that there was none more highly esteemed that the one who was thus cut down in the flower of young womanhood. The funeral occurred Tuesday at 2 p.m. from the Lutheran church, which had been approprately draped and beautifully decorated with flowers for the sad occasion. The services were conducted by Rev. H. W. Schroeder and the Concordia, of which she was a member, testified to their esteem and sense of bereavement by two special pieces of music. The church was crowded with people desiring to show respect to her memory and among those present were a number of relatives and friends from Detroit and Port Huron. In addition to her parents, brothers and sisters a large circle of relatives in this vicinity and left to mourn her departure. The family desire to thank their many friends for the assistance rendered during the sickness and death of their daughter and sister."

In 1864, he enlisted in the Second Michigan cavalry and was with his regiment under General Thomas in Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, until his left leg was injured by a log while building breastworks and he was sent to the hospital. He never entirely recovered from his injuries. All kinds of wild game abounded in this vicinity in his early life and he became famous as a hunter. Even after the war he removed to Forester, Sanilac county, and could shoot more deer than any other man in the whole county. His early life in the woods as a hunter made him well fitted for the work of a soldier. Mr. Stevens leaves a wife and three daughters, Mrs. Julia A. Bradley, Mrs. Wm. Simpson and Mrs. V.R.

Della E. Stone - [1904 Deaths listed in the Republican, St. Clair, Michigan]
"Another chord has been severed and another family has been saddened by the passing of one of its dear ones over that silent river where all is made right by our Heavenly father, to whose call we must all answer sooner or later. After a continued illness of over a year, suffering from aneurism of the aeorta, Miss Della E. Stone was relieved from her sufferings on Sunday afternoon at 1:20 o'clock. She was a very patient sufferer and although she had been confined to bed constantly since October 28, 1903 she never complained. Her death did not come unexpected as her relatives have know for months past that she could not get better. Deceased was a daughter of Alex and Anna Stone and was born in St. Clair on May 20, 1885, and would therefore have been 19 years old had she lived until the twentieth of next month. She had lived here all her life with the exception of about three years which were spent on a farm just north of this city. The funeral was held from her late home on Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, Rev. R. L. Gardiner officiating. The interment was in the Rose Hill cemetery, at East China."
