Adams, William B. -- Died 10 Dec 1923 -- Attempting To Light Gas Stove Results in Serious Injuries - William B. Adams was probably fatally burned this morning, when a gas explosion in his room at the Bell residence in Crestline, blew the roof off the building, and broke the windows from the house besides wrecking a house across the alley.  Mr. Adams is employed as machinist with the Pennsylvania railroad system at Crestline. Up to last night he made his home in this city with Mr. and Mrs. H. -?- Wentz, Augustine avenue, but moved to Crestline to eliminate the expense of going to and from his work. He arose this morning at his new home in an upstairs room at the Bell residence, and was in the act of lighting the gas in the small stove when the explosion occurred (sic). The room seemed to be filled with vapor from a leaking gas pipe, as the lid was blown off Adams' trunk into which there had evidently been a seepage of the gas.  Mr. and Mrs. Bell heard the muffled explosion, and screams of agony and when they ran to the stairway, Adams was in a sheet of flame in the hallway upstairs. He was attired only in his underclothing, and that was entirely burned from his body. On being removed to the Emergency hospital immediately after the explosion, it was readily seen that his condition was critical.  The flesh was burned from the body from head to foot, and even the nails were burned from his hands and feet. He suffered great pain from the effects of the burns, and everything possible was done for the injured man.  Mr. Adams has been singularly unfortunate in his life. Last June he was run down by an automobile while riding a motorcycle, and was confined to
his home in this city for several months, with a fractured leg, only being able to return to his work at Crestline, Nov. 26. His home is at __um Banks, Pa. Submitted by Margaret. [Mansfield News, 10 Dec 1923, pg 3] Submitter's note: I don't know who this William Adams was, anyone know?

Adams, William P. -- The correspondent has received intelligence of the death Feb. 20, at San Diego, Cal., of William P. Adams, who was well known to the older people of Lexington, where he was born Feb. 2, 1832. His father, John F. Adams, who died in Lexington in 1864, was among the first merchants here, having as partner, Mr. Damsell, grandfather of Mrs. S. N. Ford, of Mansfield. William P. Adams was uncle of Mrs. Charles Bird, of Mansfield, and brother to Miss Anna Adams, who, with Mrs. Bird's little son, met a sad and tragic death by suffocation by gas in Mansfield in September, 1890. Mr. Adams left here 44 years ago for Walla Walla, Wash. then a small trading point in the fastnesses (sic - should be vastness?) of the mountains, and he experienced dangers and privations en-route through the savage, primitive wilds that seem like something in the realms of fiction and which would have awed a less brave and hopeful heart. But he had a heart which no danger could daunt and had keen business tact and ultimately became one of the best known and successful business men on the Pacific slope. Fred Adams joined him when an athletic young man, after he came out of the civil war and he too, had high aspirations and a spirit of adventure that the greatest perils could not daunt and also achieved phenomenal success in business.  They have visited the scene of their boyhood but once since they left and that was in the year 1876 when they went to the exposition at Philadelphia. William P. Adams' death was due to dropsy.  Submitted by Margaret.  [Mansfield News:  06 March 1902]

Alexander, Amanda Weymouth -- Mrs. Amanda Weymouth Alexander, mother of our worthy townsman, Harry Alexander, peacefully passed to her last final rest, Wednesday at 9 p.m., Jan. 11, 1905, aged 75 years, 5 months and 14 days.  She was born at Belmont, Me., and on Aug. 18, 1850, was united in marriage to Harrison Alexander.  In 1851 they located in Bellville where she has lived ever since.  To this union three children were born, James M., Hannah and Harry.  The daughter was the first member of the family to be summoned by the angel of death.  Since the death of her husband Jan. 16, 1895, she has lived with her son, Harry, who owns and still occupies the old homestead on Durbin Ave.  April 18, 1885, she united with the Adventist church of this place remaining a faithful member, an earnest and devoted Christian till the close of her life.  During the latter part of the summer her health began to fail, but not until about four weeks before her death was her illness considered serious.  Her sufferings toward the last were intense, but she bore it with Christian fortitude and patience and was perfectly resigned to the will of her Savior.  In these days when many aged parents are denied the courtesies justly due them and are often made to feel that they are in the way, it is justly due to Mr. and Mrs. Alexander to say that such was not the course pursued in their home.  Mother was always welcome and during her illness every attention that could be suggested by loving hearts, was shown her.  She was closely watched over and tenderly ministered to as long as mortal hand could serve her.  Her kind and affable disposition won for her a host of friends in the social world.  The large attendance at the funeral and the many beautiful floral offerings that almost hid from sight the casket in which she rested, told of the esteem in which she was held, better than could be expressed in words.  She leaves two sons, nine grandchildren, four great-grandchildren, two brothers and one sister with many other relatives and friends to mourn her loss.  Funeral services were held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Jan. 13, conducted by Eld. H.H. Burkholder.  <poem omitted>  --  [Bellville Messenger:  03 February 1905, Vol. 13, No. 3]

Alger, Harriet P. -- Harriet P. Alger was born in Johnstown, Montgomery County, New York, Nov. 10th., 1803, and was 85 years, 2 months and 1 day old at her death.  She was married to Sylvester Alger, March 20th., 1822.  From the state of New York the couple moved to Bucyrus, O., in the spring of 1838.  From Bucyrus they moved to Wooster, O., and from the latter place to Mansfield in 1857.  She was the mother of eleven children, six of whom survive her.  They are Mrs. J.S. Norton, of Kirksville, Mo.;  L.M. Alger, of Mansfield;  Mrs. C. Elliott, of Ontario, O.;  Capt. A.B. Alger, of Portsmouth, O., and Mrs. J.M. Kerr, of Mansfield.  She was a full cousin of the late eminent divine, Dr. John D. Dempster, of Chicago.  She joined the Mansfield Methodist church about twenty years ago.  As a Christian she professed but little and practiced much.  Her rebukes of misdeeds left no thorns to fester in unnecessarily made wounds.  She was outspoken, firm and aggressive in condemning faults, but never irritating, and by the force of her mild Christian manner often changed the course of those in error, which a more boisterous spirit would have failed to influence.  There was scarcely any variation in her daily life.  She had a smile and a kind word for all she met and seemed to control other minds by contact, and make them for the time being as spiritual as herself.  The love which continually glowed in her warm heart was easily traced in her countenance, and even in death was plainly stamped upon her pale features.  Since the death of her life companion, nearly four years ago, she often said that she had nothing to rest upon but her Savior's love, and in her daily conversation always expressed that joyous hope known only to true Christians.  In her last moments she called upon Jesus to come and then added, "He is coming".  The body returns to the dust whence it came and the spirit to him who bestowed it.

Allen, Anna C. -- Mrs. Anna C. Allen, widow of the late George Allen, of Mansfield, committed suicide Friday by hanging herself in a stairway with a bed cord.  Her conduct during the sickness and death of her husband was spoken of as inhuman, but insanity is now considered the cause of her strange demeanor and her death.  --  [Bellville Star:  25 October 1883, Vol. 7, No. 3]

Allen, Anna C. (Bushey) -- SUICIDE OF MRS. ALLEN – During the absence of her daughter, Miss Clara, Mrs. Anna C. Allen, widow of the recently deceased, Alanson Allen, committed suicide last Friday morning by hanging herself to the railing of the staircase, at her residence No. 204, North Main street. Miss Allen had gone out in the morning on an errand, and on returning home about 10 o’clock made unavailing search for her mother in the down stairs rooms. She then started to go up stairs, when on opening the hall door, she discovered the body of her mother suspended by an ordinary clothes line from the balustrade of the stair case. Her screams brought Mrs. Henry Remy, who lives in the south part of the same house, to her side, and the two women lowered the body from which life had fled. The cause leading to the suicide is not known to a certainty, but from the fact that the mother and three uncles of the deceased suicided by hanging, it may be supposed that the inclination for suicide is hereditary, although had Mrs. Allen succeeded in carrying out a plan which she had chosen, she possibly would be alive to-day. After the death of her husband she was very anxious to leave the residence on Main street and said she could no longer remain there. A few days before her death, she had made all arrangements for the purchase of a property in the First Ward, and had engaged rooms and board in an adjacent house until she could obtain possession of the property she proposed to buy, which was leased until April 1st. For some cause not clearly known, Mrs. Allen was induced to abandon her purpose as formed, and remained in the old residence although daily complaining of being afflicted with a feeling of gloominess and despondency. The day before her death she told a gentleman living near her, that she believed that she was insane and had been in that condition for some years, and although endeavoring to fight against it, she was constantly possessed of a desire to end her own life and had asked to be furnished with laudanum for that purpose. All of these circumstances go to show that although the deceased in the transaction of business and her general deportment seemed perfectly sane, her mind was affected and the suicide an insane deed. Mrs. Allen’s maiden name was Anna C. Bushey, and she became the second wife of Mr. Allen in 1856. She was in the fifty-third year of her age, possessed of money and property to the amount of $20,000 and leaves two children, the elder, a son, Frank, who is now in Florida and Miss Clara, of this city. The funeral took place on Sunday at 2 P.M. [OHIO LIBERAL: 24 October 1883]
