While visiting his daughter, Mrs. O. J. HOLLAND last March in Coral Gables, Fla., Mr. HARSHMAN sustained a stroke of paralysis, from which he never recovered. During the last few weeks his condition grew steadily worse. Mr. HARSHMAN was a man of genial personality, much liked by all who knew him. He was quiet in manner and made and held friends easily in Springfield and numerous other cities. They will learn of his death with regret. Mr. HARSHMAN was recognized as one of the leading financiers and business men not only of Springfield but of this portion of the state, having shown a capacity for conducting affairs of importance. He probably was best known in connection with electric railway development and construction. He was president of the former Dayton, Springfield and Urbana electric railroad, which he promoted. He was known to be honorable and straightforward in his dealings with his fellow man. Mr. HARSHMAN was a native son of Ohio, having been born in the village which bears his family name HARSHMAN, in Montgomery County, near Dayton, January 26, 1863. He was the son of George W. and Anna V. (ROHOR) HARSHMAN, both of whom were natives of Ohio. Mr. HARSHMAN pursued his preliminary education in the schools of his native village and subsequently became a student in a select school. When he put aside his school books, he secured employment under R. D. Hughes of the American Express Co., of Dayton. However at the end of a year, he resigned in order that he might take charge of his father's affairs, which included the supervision of large tracts of farming lands as well as the control of the linseed oil mill and other milling interests and of grain supplies. He assumed the duty of looking after the grinding, buying and selling of mill products and at the same time he was extensively engaged in buying and shipping grain. He continued in active charge of the business until 1886, which he entered into partnership with his brother, Samuel R., under the name of S. R. HARSHMAN and Brother. This relation was maintained for four years, at the end of which time Mr. HARSHMAN sold his interest to his brother and moved to Clark County, locating in Enon. Since that time he became a factor in the trade relations and business development of this part of Ohio. He became a grain merchant in Enon, building an elevator there which was destroyed by fire and which he rebuilt in 1900. Believing there was a future for electric railways, Mr. HARSHMAN procured the right of way for the Dayton, Springfield and Urbana railroad and was its vice president, later assuming the office of president. He was also interested in the Springfield and Western Electric Railway Co., of which he was the president; was president of the Urbana, Bellefontaine and Northern Railway Co., and the Columbus, Delaware and Marion Electric Railway Co. He was a most important factor in the establishment and control of electric railway lines in Ohio. He was a former vice president of the Citizens National Bank; was president of the Victor Rubber Co.; was interest in the Kyle Art Glass Co., of this city; vice President of the HARSHMAN Shoe Manufacturing Co., of HARSHMAN until its sale to a Wisconsin concern. He was married to Miss Mary SNYDER in 1887. Besides his widow, he leaves three children, Mrs. George PHILLIPS HUFFMAN of Dayton and Mrs. HOLLAND, and George W. HARSHMAN of this city; three grandchildren and one sister, Mrs. H. C. KIEFABER of Dayton. Mr. HARSHMAN was a member of the Republican party, but never sought or held any political office.
