Anders, E.V. -- The death of U.R. Parsons occurred on Monday morning at 2 P.M. On the afternoon of that day, Mr. E.K. Redrup, operator in the Mansfield office, wired the fact to Mr. Anders and voluntarily explained the circumstances, as he understood them, attending that sad tragedy, as well as the direction taken by the deadly missile. To this Mr. Anders replied: "It's too bad". The next morning Mr. Anders lay in his room a corpse, from the effects of a pistol, which entered the back of the head near the right ear. Mrs. Anders made the following statement: She had noticed her husband feeling depressed, but thought nothing serious of it. Monday night he did not rest well, and when she arose asked him if he was sick, to which he replied that he guessed that he was not able to go to his breakfast. She asked him if she should bring him something to eat, and he said he was not hungry, but for her to take the children to breakfast and let him rest a little. She went to breakfast, about one block distant, and upon returning twenty minutes later found him lying upon the floor with a bullet hole behind the ear, and a Czar revolver, seven-shooter, twenty-two caliber, lying by his side. She immediately gave the alarm, but before any one arrived at the rooms he was dead. The body was picked up and laid upon a cooling board until the inquest, which took place at 2 P.M., the coroner's jury returning a verdict of death by suicide. The remains will arrive at the Pittsburgh depot at 12:40 p.m. today (Thursday), from thence they will be taken overland to West Windsor for interment. Mr. Anders was sent to Lima in April last and became manager of the Western Union Office at that point, assisted by Mrs. Anders and his son, aged about fourteen years. The family occupied rooms in the Opera House, while the Telegraph office was in the same building. Mr. Anders attended the funeral of O.H. Booth and appeared to be in better spirits than when he left here near a year ago, and the last words he said as he left THE HERALD officer were "You may expect to see me in June next, again" referring to a business meeting that is to be held in this city at that time. Mr. Anders was a second rate member of the National Union and a full rate member of the Royal Arcanum. His heirs will receive about $1000 from the former and $3000 from the latter. He was also insured for $1000 in the Telegraphers' Mutual Benefit Association. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 17 January 1884, Vol. 34, No. 9]

Anderson, David -- Another of Shelby's leading citizens has departed this life, David Anderson, was widely known among the people of Richland and Crawford counties as well as in other portions of the State.  He settled at DeKalb many years ago, and afterwards removed to Shelby.  We found him here a leading merchant in 1852.  He soon retired from active mercantile life;  but has been more or less connected with trade and business ever since.  At the time of his death he was Vice President of the First National Bank of Shelby, and a director in several others in which he held stock.  From what we saw of him in 1852 we supposed him to have been a man of iron will, stern, and of firm resolution in early life;  when age crept slowly upon him, and he retired more and more from active business, his character mellowed into that congenial old age, that gained him many friends.  He was a member of the United Presbyterian Church, but for several years past frequently worshiped in, and assisted in the support of the Lutheran Church of which his daughter, the late Mrs. Shearer, was a member.  Those who are fully acquainted with his religious feelings assure us, that he was a devout and sincere Christian.  He left home several weeks ago in ill health accompanied by a daughter-in-law to visit his son Mr. A.D. Anderson at Morrison, Ill., and if able, to extend his visit to California where another son, John Anderson resided.  Upon his arrival at Morrison, he had lost consciousness.  His death took place on Saturday last.  His remains arrived on Tuesday morning, and were taken charge of by a committee of citizens.  The funeral took place on Wednesday.  [Shelby Independent News:  22 May 1873, Vol. 5, No. 30]

Anderson, Mary A. -- On the 2nd. of January, at her late residence in this city, Mary A. Anderson, wife of Mr. A.D. Anderson, aged 36 years, 11 months and 26 days.  In addition to the many bereavements and sorrows which have fallen upon this household must now be recorded the sad loss they have sustained in the death of the wife and mother greatly beloved, as the heaviest blow among them all.  Mrs. Anderson was born in Richland County, Ohio, February 6th., 1835, and was united in the sacred bonds of marriage with Mr. A. Anderson on the 13th. of March, 1855.  Of the six children which were given them as a heritage from the Lord, to keep in trust for Him against the day when He should gather his jewels back again, three lie in their quiet burial place in Ohio, who like cherished flowers fell withering and drooping under the relentless stroke of the Reaper Death;  then followed little Maggie, and last of all the beloved wife and mother, and now the remains of these two lie side by side in the Cemetery of this city.  A few years ago during the progress of a precious revival in Shelby, Ohio, through the influence of the Holy Spirit, Mrs. Anderson opened her heart to the reception of the message of salvation, and sought with anxious prayer and humble confession of sin a personal interest in the Lord Jesus Christ, which she firmly believed was the only hope of obtaining life.  Rejoicing in the preciousness of his consolation and the strength of his grace, she followed her convictions of what she considered right an duty in openly espousing the cause of her Redeemer by uniting with the Presbyterian church of Shelby, Ohio, under the pastoral care of Rev. J.K. Kost.  In the fall of 1866 Mr. Anderson, with his family, removed to Morrison where the brother of the deceased, Dr. Taylor, has resided for many years.  All who become acquainted with Mrs. Anderson felt that they had found in her a friend of warm and tender sympathies, and a neighbor of generous and obliging disposition.  In connection with the many expressions of sorrow and grief over her death which has left another gap in the social circle, come the sweet memories of her life in the hearts of those who were most intimate.  But whilst we mingle our expressions of sorrow and sympathy with neighbors and acquaintances at the loss of one so much loved and esteemed, we are not forgetful of those whom the heaviest stroke has fallen;  and may we not fondly hope that the consolations of Jesus the previous Friend of the deceased  may rest upon the afflicted husband, the bereaved children and the relatives who feel most keenly the loss which has come upon them;  and that the influence of the sacred breath of prayer which so often ascended to the throne of God for loved ones, may now be wafted back with gracious and saving effect upon the mourners in this time of loneliness and grief, and thus give promise of a re-union of the separated members of the household as full of joy as the present hour is full of sorrow.  [Shelby Independent News:  15 February 1872, Vol. 4, No. 16 as reprinted from the Whiteside Sentinel of Morrison, IL (no date)]

Anderson, Matthew Scott -- The subject of the following memorial came to Lexington, Ohio, when only four years old, his father, Rev. James, taking charge of the Presbyterian church of Lexington and Bellville in April, 1854.  He spent five or six years of the latter years of his life on his farm near this place, moving to Chicago last October.  Many of our readers and his friends will regret to hear of his rather sudden death.  Matthew Scott Anderson was the youngest of seven children of Rev. and Mrs. James Anderson, and was born at West Rushville, Ohio, January 4, 1850.  Left motherless at the age of 15 months, he had the care and love of a Christian stepmother, who was Mrs. Abigail D. Iles, of East Rushville, Ohio, whom he and his wife cared for so loving to her death in her 87th. year.  It was my privilege to receive him into the Presbyterian church, in Williamsburg, Iowa, on profession, in February, 1871, a few weeks after the death of our father at that place.   I officiated when he married Miss Matilda M. Duncan, of Lancaster, Ohio, September 21, 1871.  This union was blessed with one daughter,  who died in infancy.  My brother spent the most of his life in Iowa.  He was a farmer and afterwards a grain merchant and livestock dealer, a man of large heart and self sacrifice for others.  He won friends wherever he went and was a member of the Masonic Order in good standing.  On January 24, while on a business trip at Fredericktown, Ohio, he fell and broke his right arm, also injuring himself internally.  He returned to his home in Chicago, two days later, to receive the devoted care of his wife, the sympathy and help of friends and the order of Masons.  His brother, Rev. W.W.

Anderson, of Jewett, Texas, and the writer.  Rev. W.W. Anderson, of Loudonville, Ohio.  After a brief service at his home by the Masonic Order, his remains were taken to Lancaster, Ohio, for funeral services and interment attended by his widow and myself.  Mrs. Anderson and two brothers tender their sincere thanks to all the friends who have helped them to bear this burden of sorrow.  --Mrs. M.S.

Anderson, Matthew Scott -- Scott Anderson is Dead.  The subject of the following memorial came to Lexington, Ohio, when only four years old, his father, Rev. James, taking charge of the Presbyterian churches in Lexington and Bellville in April, 1854.  He spent five or six of the latter years of his life on his farm near this place, moving to Chicago last October.  Many of our readers and his friends will regret to hear of his rather sudden death.  Matthew Scott Anderson was the youngest of seven children of Rev. and Mrs. James Anderson, and was born at West Rushville, Ohio, January 4, 1850.  Left motherless at the age of 15 months, he had the care and love of a Christian stepmother, who was Mrs. Abigal D. Iles, of East Rushville, Ohio, whom he and his wife cared for so loving to her death in her 87th. year.  It was my privilege to received him into the Presbyterian church, of Williamsburg, Iowa, on profession, in February, 1871, a few weeks after the death of our father at that place.  I officiated when he married Miss Matilda M. Duncan, of Lancaster, Ohio, September 21, 1871.  This union was blessed with one daughter, who died in infancy.  My brother spent the most of his life in Iowa.  He was a farmer and afterwards a grain merchant and live stock dealer, a man of large heart and self sacrifice for others.  He won friends wherever he went and was a member of the Masonic order in good standing.  On January 24, while on a business trip at Fredericktown, Ohio, he fell and broke his right arm, also injuring himself internally.  He returned to his home in Chicago, two days later, to receive the devoted care of his wife, the sympathy and help of friends and the order of Masons.  His brother, Rev. W.W. Anderson, of Loudonville, Ohio, last Monday went to help care for him, but after ten days of suffering he passed away to his rest, at 2 a.m., on February 5th., 1902, at the age of 52 years, 1 month and 1 day.  He said to his brother as to his present faith and future hope.  "All is well.  Jesus will be with me all the way", then sank into a comatose state, until he fell asleep to wake no more on earth.  He leaves a loving wife after more than thirty years of happy married life and two brothers, James E. Anderson, of Jewett, Texas, and the writer, Rev. W.W. Anderson, of Loudonville, Ohio.  After brief services at his home by the Masonic Order, his remains were taken to Lancaster, Ohio, for funeral services and interment attended by his widow and myself.  Mrs. Anderson and two brothers tender their sincere thanks to all the friends who have helped them bear this burden of sorrow."  <<scripture omitted>>  Rev. W.W. Anderson, brother of the deceased, accompanied Mrs. Anderson here with the remains from Chicago and returned to his home in Loudonville, Ohio, this morning.  The funeral was conducted by Rev. John Gourley, of the Presbyterian Church form the home of Mrs. Etta Beck on West Fifth Avenue at 5 o'clock last evening.  The remains were placed in the vault at Forest Rose cemetery to await interment in the cemetery.  [Butler Enterprise:  14 February 1902]

Anderson, Mrs. Newton  -- Bellville.  News was received at this place last Friday of the sad death of Mrs. Newton Anderson, at the home of her husband near Harrisburg, Ill.  She had gone into the kitchen to light the fire an by some means her clothing became ignited and before her husband could reach her and extinguish the flames, she was so seriously burned that she only lived a few hours.  The Andersons moved from this place to southern Illinois several years ago leaving many relatives and friends in this neighborhood who are grieved to learn of this sudden calamity.  --  [Mansfield Weekly News:  20 October 1887, Vol. 3, No. 49]

Anderson, Mrs. Newton -- Word ward received here last week announcing the death of Mrs. Newton Anderson, of Harrisburgh, Ill., formerly of this place.  Mrs. Anderson arose early Saturday morning, without awaking her husband, and went to the kitchen, an out building, and built the fire in the cook stove to prepare breakfast.  Her husband was awakened by her screams and rushed to the door where he beheld a frightful sight.  His wife was running toward the house her clothing a mass of flames.  Picking up the bed clothing he ran to her assistance and after throwing her to the ground succeeded in extinguishing the flames, but no before her clothing was nearly all consumed and her body frightfully burned.  A physician was summoned immediately but was unable to aid her materially.  She lingered in a semi-conscious condition until sometime in the afternoon when death relieved her terrible sufferings.  She was unable to give any explanation as to the origin of the fire.  She had always built the fire by using coal oil but it is improbable that it was the cause of the accident as the stove doors were found to be all closed and the oil can in its usual place.  The most plausible theory is that in lightning the fire the burning match dropped among the folds of her dress.  A loving husband and three children have the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends here in this their sad bereavement.  --  [Bellville Star:  20 October 1887, Vol. 11, No. 4]

Andres, Maggie Hout -- WEST WINDSOR -- Among the many who view our beautiful cemetery, few pass without being attracted to a spot near the main entrance. Here are seven new-made graves in one group. They are placed in two rows and all are decorated with choicest flowers by sympathizing friends. No one can gaze upon these fresh mounds but with feelings of sadness. But what must be the anguish of that fond father and tender mother, who so often lately, have baptized this hallowed ground with their unbidden tears; who have buried here all a father's joy and a mother's fond hope; who have buried here six children and a grand-child, and all in the short space of two weeks. The youngest cild was nearly five years old and the oldest, Mrs. Maggie Andres, was 21 years. These are all the victims of that dread scourge diphtheria, and the children of David and Anna Hout. The bereaved parents should have the sympathy of all who have not hearts of stone, for who knows over whose threshold the black winged angel, death, may next come with this blight. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 08 November 1883, Vol. 33, No. 51]

Andrews, Henry -- BRAINED BY A BEAM -- HENRY ANDREWS, A B. & O. SECTION HAND, KILLED BY BEING STRUCK WITH AN ENGINE BAR -- At about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon Henry Andrews, a section man on the B.&O., was killed near Spring Mills while at work.  The men were doing what is known as "shimming", that is driving small blocks under the rails at the joints to keep them even, and Andrews was standing with his back to the inside of the track, stooping over and driving in a "shim".  A train was approaching on the P.F.W.&C., which is within a few feet of the B.&O. track, and one also on the B.&O.  Andrews heard the approaching train on the B.&O. and evidently thought it was one on the P.F. track, as he knew there was one near and he did not move as the other men did.  When almost on to the man the train whistled and another section man, Patrick Dunlavey, called to Andrews to get out of the road.  It was evidently too late, for as Andrews raised his head, the beam above the cow catcher struck him, splitting his head wide open.  When the men picked him up after the train passed he was found to be dead.  The train which struck Andrews was the first section of 88 east bound.  It was stopped and the dead man taken on the caboose and brought to this city.  The remains were taken into the baggage room at the B.&O. depot and Undertaker Niman called, who removed the body to the deceased's home on McPherson street and prepared the same for burial.  The deceased was a Catholic and the funeral will take place tomorrow morning from that church.  Andrews leaves a wife and two children.  He was a member of the B.&O. Relief Association and his family will receive about $500.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  16 February 1889, Vol. LXXI, No. 39]  *A similar obituary for Henry appears in the 15 February 1889 edition of the Mansfield Herald.

Andrews, Marilla (Pollard) -- Oldest Woman In Richland County.  Mrs. Marilla Andrews, one of the most remarkable women of Richland County, celebrates her 93rd. Birthday, Monday, at her home near this place.  She came to Richland County with her parents when she was only three years of age and they settled on a farm which is now owned by the county and upon which is built the Richland County infirmary.  Her parents came to Richland County from Vermont and she has been a resident of the county for 90 years.  She married Thomas Andrews, who was the first postmaster of this place and was justice of the peace in this village for years.  He was widely known over the county in his day and is still remembered by many of the citizens of the county, having been dead only about fourteen years.  She and her husband were the first members of the Methodist church of this place.  Through all these years Mrs. Andrews has been faithful and comes to Butler occasionally.  She can remember anything that happened during her younger days but cannot remember occurrences of recent date.  She can carry on a good conversation for a woman of her age and is really interesting to talk with.  When Sunday comes she lays her sewing aside with the remark that the Lord does not want his people to work on Sunday.  During the week if her relatives think she is working too hard, they sometimes hide her sewing.  This provokes her as she does not want to rest and as soon as her sewing disappears she goes to bed and declares that she is sick.  When her work is restored to her she will get out of bed at once and go to work again.  She has not been sick much during her entire life except the last two years.  Mrs. Andrews lives with her daughter, Mrs. Sherman Huston near this place.  Five generations were represented at the family reunion Monday.  The five representatives are as follows: Mrs. Marilla Andrews, Ann S. Myers, Mrs. V.P. Brown, Mrs. E.S. Gilmore and Miss Clara Gilmore.  The oldest is 93 and the youngest is 11 years.  It is a common thing to have four generations represented in a family, but five is a little out of the ordinary.  A large crowd was in attendance reaching nearly 150 consisting of friends, relatives and neighbors.  At the noon hour a fine dinner was served by those present, after which the balance of the day was spent in social conversations.  Mrs. Andrews is making her home with Sherman Hustons [sic.] who is now the owner of the old homestead, which is but a short distance from the town on the west where she has lived for many years.  [Butler Times:  15 August 1903, Vol. XI, No. 4]

Bartley, died very suddenly on Thursday of last week, at the residence of Mrs. Dr. Blecker, where he and his wife had rooms, boarding, however, at the St. James.  For a day or two before his demise, he had been so unwell as to keep him confined to his room under medical treatment;  but on Thursday morning felt inclined to go to his business house from which he was dissuaded by Mrs. Arnold.  At noon he took some nourishment which he relished and then reclined upon the sofa or lounge.  Mrs. A. left him as she thought, comfortable, to take her dinner at the St. James, being gone about an hour.  Upon her return, she immediately went to his room, and found him cold in death -- supposed by Dr. Craig, his physician, to have been from apoplexy.  The shock and feelings of the devoted wife can only be imagined, not realized, at the sudden and unexpected demise of a fond husband, who but a short hour before, held converse with her;  but now his lips were sealed forever.  Mr. Arnold was in the 67th. years of his age, was Gov. Bartley's Private Secretary during the time he filled the Gubernatorial Chair of Ohio -- was a commissary on the staff of Gen. Wool, during the Mexican war, and Assessor of Internal Revenue in the Thirteenth Congressional District, for several years.  Funeral service were had at the M.E. church on Sabbath, and his remains attended to the Mansfield cemetery by the Order of Odd Fellows and a large number of citizens.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  30 January 1875]

Artz, Simon -- The body of Simon Artz of 28 Mack avenue was recovered from the Blackfork last night at 11:15 o'clock by two policemen and three firemen who were notified by Jack Baker that a man's body was lying in the water near the Shelby high school stadium bridge. Mr. Baker who clerks in the Alice Cline store usually takes a short cut from the store to his home and crosses the high school gridiron and the stadium bridge. When he came to the end of the bridge last night he noticed a light hat and an overcoat lying at the west end. About fifty feet farther south along the shore he found a coat. He looked around but was unable to discover the body of any person, Continuing home he secured a flashlight and returned. Throwing the light on the water he saw a body lying face down about four feet from the shore. The night police were notified and Officers Jack Coleman and Frank Cline secured the assistance of three firemen Simon May, Jack Hall and Jack Ward. Fitting themselves with rubber boots they recovered the body and recognized it as that of Simon Artz. The Sutter company was called and the body removed to the Sutter Funeral Home last night and this morning was taken to the Dick & Dye Funeral Home. Officer Frank Cline was detailed to notify the family. They were uneasy as Mr. Artz was not accustomed to being out that late. He had left home about 7:30 o'clock in the evening and they presumed he had attended church. Rev Searle, pastor of the United Brethren church, was called but stated that Mr. Artz was not at church Sunday evening, but he was at Sunday school and church in the morning. Coroner Biddle was summoned and following the inquest gave his verdict that it was a case of suicide. There were twelve gashes on each arm and one on the back. These cuts had been made through his shirt and underclothing. The knife with which he inflicted the wounds was not found last night owing to the darkness. After cutting himself he had evidently jumped in the water and fell face downward. His glasses were not broken and were in place when his body was taken from the water. Coroner Biddle assisted by other physicians performed a post mortem this morning at the Dick & Dye Funeral Home. The presence of water in the lungs he stated indicated that Mr. Artz was living when he entered the water, and that the verdict would be suicide by drowning. When the body was first discovered and slashes observed on the arms and back there was a slight suspicion that perhaps he might have been murdered and the body thrown in the river. The coroner and police however are positive that Artz ended his own life. He first removed his overcoat and hat and laid them at the west end of the stadium bridge. This might have been for the purpose of making certain that his body would be found later when his hat and overcoat were discovered. This part of his program planned he walked about fifty feet south along the river bank to a clump of trees and bushes where he removed his coat and then slashed his arms and back, The knife or other instrument used has not yet been located although the police searched the river and the grass near where the coat was found. Mr. Artz had been employed at the C. A, Moyer clothing store on West Main street for the past twenty-two years. He started work there January 26, 1911. Several years during the winter season when Mr. Moyer spent the winter in Florida, he managed and conducted the business himself. He was a man in whom Mr. Moyer and all the people who knew him placed the utmost confidence. Their trust in him was never betrayed in the slightest degree and his friends were legion in the community. Previous to his long years of service in the clothing store he was employed at the Shelby Steel Tube Plant. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Artz, both deceased. and was born south of Ganges, October 14, 1872 and was aged 60 years. He has been a resident of this community all his life, was a member of the United Brethren church, and enjoyed the respect and esteem of a large circle of friends. He is survived by his wife, one son Edwin H. Artz of No. 4 Lexington street, Newark, N.J., and one daughter Mrs. Martha Henes of Wellington, O. He is also survived by three brothers, Jerry, Isaac and Charles and one sister Mrs. Andrew Dick, all of Shelby and vicinity. Funeral arrangements were not completed today and are awaiting the arrival of the son Edwin H. Artz from Newark, N.J. Dick & Dye funeral directors in charge. Submitted by Terry W.

Au, Chris S. "C.S." -- The citizens of Ontario and vicinity were thrown into a state of melancholy last Thursday morning when the electric wires had transmitted to them the sad news of the death of one of its former citizens, C.S. Au, in a railroad disaster at Ashland, that morning. The shocking intelligence was received by everybody with much sadness, and hopes were entertained by many that it must be a mistake, but later advice only confirmed the horrible news. The funeral took place from the residence of his parents, Mr. & Mrs. Capt. C. Au, of that place on Saturday from whence a large concourse of friends, neighbors and railroad employees from Galion followed his remains to the place of interment in the Mansfield Cemetery. "Chris" as he was familiarly called was one of those bright energetic, joyful, lively dispositioned individuals who always help make a community cheerful, festive and happy. He was nineteen years of age and the youngest of the family of seven children, all of which survive him. He remained with his parents until in February, 1883, when he entered the telegraphic school of Valentine Bros., of Jamesville, Wisconsin, where he in the short period of four months, became proficient in telegraphy and was offered a position as operator in Chicago, but preferred being nearer his parents for whom he had the deepest affection. He returned home and soon began work in the night office at Galion, but finding that confinement indoors at night work was ruining his health and too dull for his festive disposition; he sought other employment, and in August 1883 began "breaking" for the N.Y.P. & O. railroad company, which avocation he since followed and which cost him his life. In September 1883 he married Miss May M. Stewart of this place who now after the short period of fourteen months is left to mourn the loss of her husband. Although living in Galion, scarcely a week passed but he would go back home "between trains" to see his father, mother, brother and sister whose life was always made cheerful by his presence. Yes "Chris" is gone! His many friends mourn his loss and the public mourn and sympathize with them. His sorrowful wife will no more hear those oft repeated words which were used as he left for his work, "Good by, May, till I come back." His grief-stricken Mother will not gain hear but always remember his last words to her as he left her room a few days since "good by, ma, if I don't see you again" and our town's people will no more hear that familiar whistle by which he always notified them of his connection with the passing train. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 27 November 1884, Vol. 35, No. 2]

Au, Nellie L. Norris

Au, U. Grant -- U. Grant Au died Sunday evening about 7 o'clock at his late home, 4 1/2 miles east of the city. The deceased sustained a sun stroke two years ago and since then had not enjoyed good health. Some time ago he grew worse and was taken to his bed. The killing of his brother Sherman Au, of which mention was made Saturday, affected him greatly, this hastening the end. Mr. Au was a son of Jacob Au and resided on the Au homestead. He was about 45 years of age, leaving a wife and two daughters. Also two brothers: Taylor Au, of east of this city, and Jacob Au, of Mansfield. The funeral was held this afternoon at 1:30 o’clock, the Rev. G. G. Clark, Lucas, officiating and the interment being made in the Mansfield cemetery. Dr. McCullough was summoned to attend Mr. Au when he was discovered to be seriously ill and later another doctor was called in. It was reported around town Monday that Mr. Au had taken Paris green and that death was due to this course. A News man talked with Dr. McCullough, but as he is the family physician he refused to say anything about the cause of death. Dr. Goodman, the county coroner, was out of town when the death occurred. Dr. Bushnell was to act in place of the regular official but it was not deemed necessary in this case for the official county doctor to call at once after death. It was stated Monday that the matter would be left until Coroner Goodman reached home Tuesday and that the coroner would go out afterward. Coroner Goodman when seen today stated that he was informed upon reliable authority that Grant Au came to his death by reason of taking Paris green, but as he had had physicians in with him when he died he did not deem it necessary to hold an inquest for the deceased and probably would not hold one. Au, it is stated, took the stuff Saturday afternoon and died Sunday evening about 6 o’clock. Submitted by Steve B. [The Mansfield News (Mansfield, Ohio) Tuesday, July 5, 1904 p6 col5] *Paris Green is a common name for copper(II)-acetoarsenite.

Aungst, ---- -- Reuban Evarts, Esq., of Jefferson Township, has got into a muss with Dr. Race, the Coroner.  The dead body of Mr. Aungst was found and after waiting a while for the Coroner, the Squire proceeded to hold an inquest.  Coroner came when inquest was in session -- said the Squire had no right under the law to hold it.  The Squire persisted in completing the job.  It now appears that the Coroner also, held an inquest, and drew his pay first -- thus verifying the scripture that the "first shall be last and the last first."  That "body" was well sat on by jurors;  and yet the wonder now is whether any jury was really necessary.  [Shelby Independent News:  30 October 1873, Vol. 6, No. 1]

Aungst, ---- -- Saturday morning word reached town that a five-year-old son of Mr. & Mrs. Washington Aungst, who live a mile west of town, had accidentally shot himself.  The report was only too true.  Dr. Stofer was called and found that the ball had entered the child's body about two inches to the right of the umbilicus and taken a downward course lodging in the hip.  In the afternoon Drs. Reed and Hedges, of Mansfield, assisted Dr. Stofer to sew up the perforations of the intestines.  This operation was only resorted to as the only hope of saving the boy's life.  Twelve perforations were found in the small intestines and several small arteries were cut.  Toward evening the boy regained consciousness long enough to talk to his mother and tell her that all blame rested on himself alone.  The little fellow had gone to his brother's room and by some means got the revolver -- a 32 caliber -- out of his brother Edward's ants pocket, and while playing with it was accidentally discharged.  At about 6 o'clock in the evening the boy breathed his last, internal hemorrhage resulting from the several arties having taken place.  The funeral took place on Monday at one o'clock from the Salem Lutheran church.  Rev. Dornblazer conducted the funeral services.  --  [Bellville Star:  14 March 1889, Vol. 12, No. 24]
