Cadwallader, Harvey -- Through a newspaper clipping, Mrs. John A. Adams discovered that her nephew, Harvey Cadwallader, a brother of Albert Cadwallader of Shelby, had been buried in an unknown grave.  The aunt saw the clipping which had been sent out from Delaware, O. and was led to believe it was her nephew.  The man had been taken ill at the police station at Delaware and died in a hospital there.  During his delirium, he mentioned the name Cadwallader.  He was identified beyond a doubt by the description the mayor of Delaware sent the aunt.  He was buried in an unknown grave at Delaware but will be removed by his relatives and buried at Sycamore, O.  [Mansfield (OH) Daily Shield:  08 March 1909]

Cahill, Abraham -- We have hitherto neglected to notice the death of Abraham Cahill, Esq. which occurred at San Antonia, Texas, December 7th., 1868, whither he had gone, accompanied by his brother D. Cahill, with a hope of restoring his failing health. Mr. Cahill was one of our earliest friends in Ohio, becoming first acquainted with him while yet a member of his father's family, a few miles from this place, and the friendship then formed, continued without interruption, to the close of his life. He was a member of the Lutheran Church at Dayton, where the funeral obsequies were performed on the 30th. ult. The Dayton Ledger thus closes a notice of his death. "Thus has passed from earth a man whose mind was rich with culture, a lawyer learned in his profession, and a Christian, whose every-day walk in life, was an example well worthy of imitation. While yet young in years, he was cut down and gathered to his Fathers. His ashes rest amid the hills that overlook our beautiful city, where the most important part of his life was spent. Side by side with the companion of his bosom, he sleeps the long sleep of death. The trees of the forest bend mournfully above his grave, while gentle zephyrs sing his requiem. Requiescat in peace."

Cahill, Michael -- Michael Cahill, one of the oldest railroad men in the state, was so seriously injured on the B.&O. at Lexington, at 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon, says Saturday's Shield, that he died a few minutes after being removed from the scene of the accident.  Mr. Cahill was in charge of a gang of section men who were clearing the snow off what is known as the coal track near the depot at Lexington.  The main track was occupied by a freight train waiting for a helper to drop down into the siding between the coal track and the main track after helping a train up the grade to Alta.  Mr. Cahill stepped on the side track a moment to fill and light his pipe and while standing there he was struck by the rear end of the returning helper and carried under the wheels.  His clothing caught on a truck and he was dragged some 150 feet before a signal to Engineer Goer brought the engine to a stop.  As soon as the engineer received the signal to stop he reversed his engine and dragged the helpless man back for twenty feet.  The only words spoken by the dying man was "See boys, I'm done for" uttered after being taken out from under the tender by his men.  He was taken to his home nearby where he expired.  He was badly cut up, his left arm and left leg being severed from the body.  Mr. Cahill was born in Ireland 65 years ago and came to this country when a boy.  He had been a resident of Lexington for nearly forty years, during all of which time he had been working on the section and for the last twenty years he had been a section boss.  He was well bundled up yesterday owing to the cold.  He leaves a wife, three sons and four daughters.  W.P. Cahill, of New Castle, Pa., train dispatcher of the B.&O.;  Michael Cahill, of Scranton, Pa., trainmaster of the D., L.&W., and Thomas Cahill, of Lexington, are his sons.  Misses Rose, Jennie and Maggie, of Lexington, and Mary, of this city, are his daughters.  The deceased was a member of St. Peter's Catholic Church in this city and the funeral services will be held there at 8:30 o'clock Monday morning.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  15 January 1903, Vol. 11, No. 2]

Cairns, John G. -- John G. Cairns, for some time janitor at the Bowman Street School building, was found dead Monday afternoon about 3:30 o'clock in the basement of the school building.  The discovery was made by his son Roy, who usually assisted his father in the janitor work.  On going to the basement after school had closed Roy was horrified to find the body of his father lying near the coal pile.  The dead man still had a shovel in his hand and death had evidently overtaken him while he was engaged in shoveling coal into the furnace.  Dr. Davis was sent for and, on arriving, pronounced Mr. Cairns dead and that he had probably been dead 20 minutes or more before he was found.  Death is supposed to have resulted from a stroke of apoplexy, though the opinion is also given that it was due to heart disease.  Mr. Cairns was in good health and spirits Monday.  Mr. Cairns had a fall while coming down stairs the day before and had hurt himself.  This was thought to have contributed toward his death.  His sudden demise comes as a sad blow to his wife and children as well as to a host of friends and acquaintances who join in expressing kindest sympathy to the bereaved family.  Coroner Baughman was notified and viewed the body, after which it was taken to the late home of the deceased at 93 Orchard Street.  Mr. Cairns was well known here, where he has lived for many years.  He was a jovial, wholesouled man, and all who had dealings with him knew him as a straightforward, upright citizen.  He was a soldier of the civil war, also was a member of the Knights of Pythias.  He was at one time a mail carrier in the city, serving when George W. Statler was postmaster.  Mr. Cairns was twice married.  He leaves five children by his first wife, Harry M., Roy and George R., and Mrs. Anna L. Eby, of Rockford, Ill. and Nellie, of this city.  His first wife died in December, 1883, and a second wife and several children survive.  The deceased was born Jan. 27, 1840.  Coroner Baughman held the inquest this morning at 9 o'clock at his office on Park Avenue East.  Funeral Thursday, Dec. 8, at 2 p.m.  [picture available --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  09 December 1898, Vol. 14, No. 101]

Cairns, Robert -- One by one the old residents of Mansfield pass over the river to join the great majority.  Robert Cairns, the oldest citizen who was born in Mansfield, died at his home on West Bloom Street yesterday morning.  About two years ago Mr. Cairns sustained a paralytic stroke, but he sufficiently recovered to be able to walk down street.  His health was broken, however, and three weeks ago he sustained another paralytic stroke and it was thought by the attending physicians he could survive only a few days, but he made a remarkable fight with Death.  Last Tuesday he became unconscious and remained so until Friday, when he rallied and was able to talk and recognize different members of his family.  Friday evening he again became unconscious, in which state he remained until his death.  Robert Cairns was born in the old McFall building, which stood at the corner of Main and Third streets, Feb. 3rd., 1815.  He was the second child born in Mansfield, Mansfield Gilkinson being the first.  In 1818 his parents moved across the street to the corner now occupied by A.B. Dittenhoefer's clothing store.  There the family remained until Robert attained his majority.  In 1835 he married Miss Elizabeth Gordon, the ceremony being performed by Rev. James Johnson, the first United Presbyterian minister in Mansfield.  Mrs. Cairns died four years ago.  Mr. & Mrs. Cairns removed to Jackson Township immediately after their marriage, where they lived until 1875, when they moved back to the city.  Mr. Cairns was always an ardent Democrat and his friends and neighbors recognized his ability by electing him a Justice of the Peace, and he served the people of Jackson Township in that capacity for many years.  To Mr. & Mrs. Cairns nine children were born.  The following named are still living:  Mrs. D.R.P. Myers, John G. Cairns, Mrs. Jackson Cline, Mrs. J.H. Miller, Mrs. Robt. L. Patterson, of this city;  Joseph Cairns, Mrs. Henry Beam of Spring Mills, and Richard Cairns, who lives on the old homestead in Jackson Township.  Robert Cairns, Jr., died eight years ago.  Robert Cairns' father, Joseph Cairns, came to Richland County from Muskingum County shortly after Hull's surrender of Detroit.  He had been a captain in one of the Ohio regiments in the earlier part of the second war with Great Britain.  Mr. Cairns had a wonderfully accurate memory and, having been born in this city when it was a hamlet, he enjoyed nothing better than telling of the good old times, how he and his playmates romped where tall business buildings now stand.  Besides his children and a host of friends the deceased leaves one sister, Mrs. Harriett McLaughlin, relict of Gen. Wm. McLaughlin.  In his death, Mansfield sustains a great loss, but his years were many and the Harvester of all plucked the ripened sheaf.  The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, from his late home.  Rev. F.B. Foster will officiate.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 November 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 27]

Cantwell, Jacob Young -- On Sunday, the 11th. inst., Dr. Jacob Young CANTWELL, died at his winter residence at Decatur, Alabama.  To all the older citizens of Mansfield and vicinity, Dr. CANTWELL is well known.  Born and reared in this county and passing the greater portion of his life in this city as a successful surgeon and physician he was known to all.  During the war of the rebellion Dr. CANTWELL served his country in the capacity of surgeon and was appointed Inspector of Army Hospitals.  After the war he resigned his commission and engaged in speculation in the South in which he was signally successful.  For a number of years past it had been his custom to spend the summer months in this city, where his skilled services as physician and surgeon were sought in council by other members of the profession, and to pass the winter months in the South.  Recently he determined to make his permanent home in this city, but ere he was enabled to carry his plans into execution, he was cut down by man’s last and greatest foe.  His remains were brought to this city Tuesday evening and funeral services, under the auspices of Mansfield Commandery Knights Templar, of which order the deceased was an old and honored member, were held at Grace (Episcopal) Church this afternoon at 2 o’clock.   [Ohio Liberal:  14 February 1883]

Cantwell, James -- The telegraph brings us the melancholy intelligence that Colonel James Cantwell, of the 82d. Ohio was killed in one of the battles near Manassas last week.  Although we have not read anything beside the above bare announcement, we have every reason to believe it is true.  Col. Cantwell came to this county about forty years ago from Jefferson County, in this State.  From his manhood he was known as one of the most prominent citizens, always taking a leading part in every measure of public interest.  Several years ago he was elected to the House of Representatives of the State, and after the expiration of his term there he was nominated and chosen a Senator from this district, composed of Richland and Ashland Counties.  In 1859 he was renominated, but was defeated by Dr. Glass.  Sometime the following year Col. Cantwell moved to Kenton, Hardin County, where he purchased a hotel, of which he became landlord, and also a flouring mill.  In the spring of 1861, immediately on the President's call for 75,000 men, Col. C recruited a company and became its Captain.  This company was assigned to the Fourth Regiment, and on its organization, Col. C. was chosen Lieutenant-Colonel and the late Lord Andrews Colonel.  After Col. Andrews' death, Col. Cantwell remained in command of the 4th. Ohio.  It was during this time that the battle of Romney was fought, which victory brought Col. C into favorable notices everywhere.  Notwithstanding this brilliant evidence of his capacity another man was appointed over his head, which forced him to resign.  Receiving permission to recruit a regiment, he went to work in his usual vigorous manner, and in less time than had been required to fill any regiment in the State, reported the 32d. as ready for marching orders.  It was sent, we believe, to Beverly, Va., where it remained through the winter.  Early in the spring it was ordered to Cumberland, and shortly after was placed in Fremont's corps.  The 82d. has been in several engagements, the principal two of which, besides the late engagements, were McDowell and Cross Keys.  Wherever it has been engaged it has conducted itself with honor to its State and its Colonel.  Col. Cantwell was a brave soldier, and though we have as yet seen no details of his death, we are confident he died gallantly.  He never asked anyone to follow where he was unwilling to lead -- and wherever he fell it was in discharge of his duty.  No nobler man in all this war has sealed his devotion to his country with his blood than James Cantwell.  With a heart full of the finest impulses, ever prompting to deeds of kindness, Col. C. was beloved by all, and we know of no one whose loss would be more deplored by our citizens than his is.  Let those who have gone out from this county emulate his example and avenge his death.  Col. Cantwell leaves a large family, who are now residing in Kenton.  P.S. -- Since the above was written we have been permitted to copy the following dispatch from Mrs. Cantwell to Mr. John Crall of this city.  "Kenton, Sept. 2.  Col. Cantwell fell on Friday, shot through the head.  He died on the battlefield.  -- Sarah Cantwell."   [Mansfield Semi-Weekly Herald:  03 September 1862]

Carpenter, George F. -- After a long illness, a general breaking down of the physical forces due to advanced age, George F. Carpenter died at 11 o'clock Tuesday night at his home on Marion avenue.  Funeral Friday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m.  Mr. & Mrs. Frank G. Carpenter, of Washington, and Mr. & Mrs. C.F. Tandy, of Vevay, Ind. are here for the funeral.  George F. Carpenter was born Aug. 3, 1820 in Worthington township, Richland county.  He was married July 2, 1852 to Jennette L. Reid of Mansfield, whose death occurred in 1888.  By this marriage he had six children.  Reid, Frank, John, Jennette, Dan and Lizzie, of whom John and Dan are deceased.  Reid and Lizzie, the latter Mrs. Findley are residents of this city.  Frank G., the well-known journalist and author, lives in Washington and Jennette (Mrs. Tandy) resides at Vevay, Ind.  In 1890 Mr. Carpenter married Katherine Colden, who survives him.  Mr. Carpenter came to Mansfield in 1842 and studied law with James Purdy, and was admitted to the bar at New Lisben in 1845 and formed a partnership which continued until 1847, when he formed a partnership with Gen. William McLaughlin which continued until 1852.  He then resumed the practice of law alone for several years, after which he formed a partnership with Col. Isaac Gass.  He was in the army from April 6, 1863, till Nov. 12, 1865.  He was appointed paymaster of the Army of the Cumberland.  After the war he returned to Mansfield and resumed the practice of law.  In 1874 he entered into partnership with ex-Postmaster Henry P. Davis, which continued for many years and they occupied the same office after the discontinuance of the law partnership some years ago.  Mr. Carpenter, during his active professional and business life, served in a number of official capacities, having been mayor in 1856 and later serving as councilman for a number of years.  He was one of the incorporators and the vice president of the Citizens' National Bank.  Mr. Carpenter was ever an active useful citizen who has been identified with the growth and prosperity of the city.  Not of demonstrative or effusive nature, he was nevertheless a positive and influential factor in public affairs.  He was diligent in all affairs of life, was a wise counselor in law and in business and to his public services brought intelligent and effective faculties.  In politics a Republican he ws in no sense a political bigot, but broad-minded and conservative.  In his over half century in the law practice he was the contemporary of many of the early day giants of the bar.  He was the firm friend of John Sherman, when the latter began his public life and was ever his admirer and staunch supporter.  His associates in the law practice were men whose names like his own, are honorably identified with Mansfield's history.  He leaves to his family and to the city where his long life was spent the heritage of an honorable name and a useful career.  [Mansfield News:  13 November 1901, Vol. 17, No. 217]  << photo >>

Carpenter, Harry L.

Carpenter, John L. -- The Sad Death of a Former Mansfield Young Man, at Holdrege, Nebraska -- Mr. George Carpenter, of this city, received a telegram on Saturday last announcing the death of his third son, John L. Carpenter, at Holdrege, Nebraska, at eleven o'clock on that morning.  Full particulars have not yet arrived, and all that ca be gathered in from the various telegrams received by the family.  From them it seems that on the 22d. inst. the deceased started to go into the country on business.  Just as he was leaving the town the horse got his tail over the lines and began to kick violently.  Mr. Carpenter at once jumped from the carriage, thinking to catch the horse, but in alighting, he broke his leg between the knee and the ankle.  Kind friends were present at the time and these carried him into town and an efficient surgeon set the leg.  At this time the wound was not considered at all dangerous.  That same afternoon, Mr. Carpenter wrote home to his father, using a pencil, saying that he had broken his leg but that there was not danger;  that he could get along very well and that none of the family need come out to take care of him.  He said he expected to be home by the middle of August, and that he had plenty of friends and the best of treatment.  This letter was received Friday morning.  The following mail brought a letter of the same purport, from his friend, Mr. J.W. Ferguson, a banker of an adjoining town.  Before these letters reached Mansfield, on Thursday afternoon, came a telegram from Mr. Ferguson, saying that though there was no danger, some one of the family had best come out.  On the receipt of it, Mr. Reid Carpenter came at once from Cleveland and on Friday took the first fast train for the West.  At this time nothing dangerous was apprehended.  Friday afternoon, however, other dispatches came saying that John's condition was very serious indeed, and that he could not live.  From this time on up until two P.M. Saturday, telegrams of the same nature were received at short intervals, and at that hour came the sad news "John died peacefully and quietly at five minutes past eleven this morning."  The family, up to this time, had hoped against hope, and the news was a terrible blow.  Mr. Reid Carpenter arrived in Holdrege Sunday night, and he will bring the remains, which were at once properly embalmed, here for burial.  They will reach here on Thursday and the funeral will probably take place Friday.  Few men have started life with brighter prospects than did John L. Carpenter.  He was, at the time of his death, almost 27 years of age.  He was the embodiment of health and full of energy, industry and life.  Nine years ago he graduated at the public schools of Mansfield, the first man in his class, taking the valedictory oration.  Four years later he had finished his collegiate course at Wooster University, where he also ranked among the highest.  He was a popular student at college;  he took a leading place in literary society as a debater and he was one of the chief officers of the Beta Theta Pi College Fraternity, which has chapters in nearly every college in the United States.  At the time of his graduation, with no application on his part, the Aultman & Taylor Manufacturing Company, voluntarily offered him the charge of their collections in Kansas and Nebraska.  He accepted the position, and for four years gave them efficient and satisfactory service.  Last year he decided to leave them and to strike out for himself.  Giving them due notice he did so, and chose Holdrege, Nebraska, as his field.  Holdrege is a fast growing town in Western Nebraska, almost 1,300 miles from Mansfield.  In November last, when Mr. Carpenter settled there and opened as a loan broker, it had only two houses.  Now it has from 800 to 1,000 population, and does as much business as any town of 2,500 in the State of Ohio.  It has two big elevators, several banks, plenty of stores of various kinds and promises to become the county seat of the county.  It is now on the main line of a great railroad, and it has a population of active, thrifty, young western business men.  Of this town, John L. Carpenter was one of the leading factors, and like the town, was doing well.  He had a fair amount of capital, part of which was his own savings and the remainder the gift of his father, and he had the brains and experience to know how to use it.  He was well fitted to make a good fight in life anywhere, and especially fitted for the West.  He was a good-looking, bright eyed, sociable fellow, full of pluck, energy and honesty, allied to good business judgment and a strong will.  Had he lived there is no doubt that he would have been one of the leading men of his State, and as it was he had already strong friends among the business men all over it.  At the time of his death a number of his friends were present, some of them coming long distances by rail to see that he was well taken care of.  He died in a house which he had built for himself in the center of the town, and his family have no doubt but that he had the best of care and attention.  It is a great regret to them that they could not have gotten to him after he was hurt.  But the time between the accident and his death was so short that it was impossible.  No one but those who have such losses can appreciate them, and John Carpenter's many friends in Mansfield and throughout Northern Ohio will unite with them in their grief.  [Ohio Liberal:  30 July 1884, Vol. 12, No. 16]

Chambers, Robert Craig -- Lexington.  State Senator Robert Craig Chambers, who died in San Francisco recently, formerly resided here and had carved his name high in the niche of fame since he left the scene of his boyhood days.  He was the noted silver magnate, and multimillionaire of that name.  Mr. Chambers is well remembered by the older residents here and the brief story of his rise from obscurity to fame and wealth seams like something in the realms of fiction than the great and inspiring  reality that it was.  His parents were Mr. & Mrs. James Chambers and he was born Jan. 16, 1832, on the dairy farm now owned by W.W. Cockley, near the northern limits of Lexington.  He was an athletic youth when he left here in the year 1850 for the newly-discovered Eldorado in California.  He aspired to wealth and fame and a brave and hopeful heart beat in his breast and his most radiant hopes were more than realized.  He arrived in Sacramento, Cal. in 1850 and was engaged in mining and mercantile business.  He also officiated as sheriff in California and in 1862 went to Nevada and in 1870 located in Utah.  His fame as a mining expert brought him in contact with those famous silver kings, Senator Hearst and Marcus Daly, with whom he associated in business and soon started on his phenomenal career to wealth and fame.  He became superintendent of the famous Ontario and Daly mines.  He was owner of the Salt Lake Herald and in various lines his financial transactions have been stupendous.  His mansions in Salt Lake City and Oakland, Cal., rival an oriental potentate's in splendor.  Mr. Chambers was elected to the state senate of Utah in 1896 and was four times delegate to national Democratic conventions.  His death was due to appendicitis, having gone from Salt Lake to San Francisco to be operated on.  He had a life insurance (policy) of $105,000.  His wife died in 1895 and he had no children.  He leaves two brothers, Cyrus, of Washington, D.C., and George, of Lee Summit, Mo., and three sisters in Kansas City, who are well known to many people here.  Mr. Chambers probably died intestate and, if so, they will inherit his princely fortune.  Newspapers of the remote west dwell in glowing terms on Mr. Chambers' fine elements of brain and character.  [Mansfield News:  22 May 1901, Vol. 17, No. 70]

Chandler, S. Adelia -- Miss S. Adelia Chandler, who resided with her parents at No. 153 West Bloom Street, poisoned herself last Wednesday afternoon about four o'clock, by taking carbolic acid.  A bottle of acid had been obtained and part of its contents used as a disinfectant, and the bottle had then been secreted by Mrs. Chandler, but Miss Adelia had in some way obtained it, and having added a quantity of aniline to the acid, drank the contents.  The circumstances of the case are as follows:  The deceased had labored under considerable mental anxiety and excitement during the illness of her brother William, in January last, which, with the grief caused by his subsequent death, was followed by a melancholy state of mind that produced a condition of hopelessness and despondency.  And although she was an exemplary member of the M.E. church, her Christian hope, owing to her morbid mental condition, was not clear, and she manifested great anxiety about the future life, which superinduced a serious aberration of her mind.  She had often experienced a desire to die and seemed to think that if she would take her own life, the act would in some way, atone for her sins.  She had made two attempts to do so, once by taking laudanum and once with chloroform, which caused her friends to keep a strict watch upon her movements for the past two months.  Last Wednesday, however, she appeared in a more cheerful state of mind, and proposed to get ready to "clean house" worked with considerable zest, up to three o'clock, when the work for the day being ended, she went to her room to change her clothing, and shortly afterwards her mother hearing a scream, went to her and found her in an unconscious condition from having taken a deadly poison.  Drs. Keyes, Erwin and Merry were hastily summoned, but the poor victim was beyond the skill of earthly physicians to render her relief, and within an hour and ten minutes after she had taken the fatal dose, she breathed her last.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  06 May 1876]

Chauncey, O.F. -- At 5:40 yesterday afternoon O.F. Chauncey, the traveling man injured in a runaway Wednesday afternoon, March 18th., and unconscious from that time, breathed his last.  As stated in yesterdays SHIELD he had been sinking gradually since Sunday noon, but would occasionally seem to regain strength for a few moments and then suffer a relapse.  The final dissolution, which had been in progress for nearly thirty-six hours came at the time stated above, when only the attachees of The Vonhof were present.  Proprietor Bird at once notified the father at Alexandria, Va., of the death of the son and made preparations for the shipment of the corpse to that place.  At 9 o'clock last night an answer was received from the father, requesting that the remains be at once shipped to him by Adams Express.  The body was prepared and casket furnished by Undertaker Schroer, after which a number of the ladies of the hotel, out of sympathy for the deceased, decorated the casket with a wreath of lilies, pinks, roses, etc., after which the remains were taken to the train and shipped at 12:14.  The remains will arrive at Alexandria at 5 o'clock tonight and will be met by the sorrowing parents and relatives.  The care the young man received at the hands of Proprietor Bird and attachees of the hotel was of the very best and the interest and sympathy displayed by the citizens and traveling men who visited the city, during the past week is commendable.  No post mortem was held, but the doctors in charge state that the direct cause of death was a contusion of the brain, which resulted in paralysis of the entire nervous system.  The supposition here is that the deceased man's father is a hardware merchant and while in the latter's store he gained the knowledge of the New York firms' goods, which enabled him to go upon the road and make a living selling the goods for himself in the manner he did.  This is frequently done and is an honorable and honest way of gaining a livelihood.

Chew, Amon -- Mr. Amon Chew, an engineer on the Bee Line Railroad, formerly a resident of Rome and Shiloh, this county, met his death at Cleveland on Wednesday morning at half-past 2 o'clock, in the following tragic manner: Pony Engine, No. 40, took a train of cars to the Bee Line yard near the Cincinnati slip, and was returning across the high trestle crossing at Scranton avenue. The draw had been swung while the engine was over. The fireman hearing the ringing of the bridge bell jumped from the engine to the trestle and escaped, while Chew remained on the locomotive, which plunged off the end of the trestle into the river, thirty feet below. The body of the unfortunate engineer was recovered at 2:00 in the afternoon of the same day. Mr. Chew was a man of about 35 or 36 years of age, and leaves a wife and child, the latter a boy of 11 years. It is said that he was the owner of the home his family occupy at No. 48 Woodbine Street, and, as a result of his industry, temperate and economic habits, was in quite comfortable circumstance. He had been in the employ of the railroad company for twelve or fifteen years, and was a Mason. His remains were taken on Friday morning to Shiloh, where his sister Mrs. Silas Ferrell, resides, and from whose home the funeral took place on Friday at 1 p.m., the interment taking place in the family burying ground at Rome. Mr. Chew was a son of Judge Ezekiel Chew, deceased. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 13 December 1883, Vol. 34, No. 4]

Chew, Ezekiel -- Ezekiel Chew, better known as Judge Chew, a prominent citizen of Bloominggrove Township, died on Sunday last, after a lingering illness.  We have no further particulars.  [Shelby Independent News:  18 April 1872, Vol. 4, No. 25]

Chew, Ezekiel -- We last week noticed, briefly, the death of Hon. Ezekiel Chew, of Bloominggrove Township, on Sabbath, April 14th., in the 67th. year of his age.  His funeral took place, on Tuesday following, under the direction of the Masonic fraternity of which he was for many years an honored member.  His remains were attended to the grave by the largest concourse of people, ever assembled upon a similar occasion, in that section of our county.  He was a native of near Winchester, Va., and a resident of this county for about fifty years.  He was a man of iron will, and had he been favored with the advantage of a liberal education, and not possessing a natural diffidence, which prevented his friends from placing him in positions of honor, would have most assuredly made his mark in the world.  The influence of his mind was impressed upon all that section of country.  Judge Chew was the confidential adviser of his neighbors in almost every case of difficulty.  Peaceable and law abiding himself, he advised all his neighbors to be so, and we know something of how often he kept them from engaging in tedious lawsuits, by stepping between his disputing neighbors, and settling their difficulties by the mere power his good sense and the influence had over them.  We were glad to rank him amongst our constant and most sincere friends, having a letter from him, written but a very few days previous to his death, breathing the same friendship, that ever existed between us.  In the language of another we can truly say, "his friendship so sincere and firm, his disposition so kind and obliging to neighbors, we know he must have been the most loving of husbands and kindest of fathers."  [Shelby Independent News:  25 April 1872, Vol. 4, No. 26]

Chew, William -- The subject of this memoir was born in Anarundal [sic] County, in the State of Maryland, on the 16th. day of January, 1771.  At about the age of twenty years, he removed with his father to Frederick Co., Va. where he resided until 1895, when he emigrated with his gather to Ohio, and settled in Harrison County, where he remained until 1822, when he removed to, and settled in Richland County, where he resided until the time of his death, which occurred on the 14th. day of April, 1865, at the residence of Jacob Crone, Esq., his son-in-law.  It will be seen that father Chew lived to a very advanced age, being at the time of his decease, 91 years, 2 months, twenty-nine days old, and for 30 years of that time, was a member of the M.E. Church, and more than that, was a pure, devoted Christian.  The writer of this article was very intimately acquainted with Father Chew for the last twelve or thirteen years, and knew him to love him as a father in Israel.  Religion, the prosperity of the Church and the glory of God, were the chief objects of his life.  It may be truly said that he loved his God, his country and his fellow man.  He was a kind husband, an affectionate father, a good citizen and a devoted Christian.  He asked at the head of one of the largest, and one of the most respectable families of this county, and I think I can truly say, that no children had a better father, and no father had more devoted children.  Long before his death, he requested, if I should survive him, I should be called upon to preach his funeral sermon, which I did on te day after his death, when he was followed to the grave by a very large concourse of citizens, as a manifestation of their respect for him and his surviving relatives.  A very large portion of the church was occupied by his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  He was buried in the Odd Fellows' Cemetery, near Lucas, by the side of his beloved wife, who preceded him to the grave a few years ago, where they both sleep in Jesus to await the resurrection of the Just.  "Let me die the death of Father Chew, and may my last end be like his."  -- W.A.G.

Ciesla, Frank -- Frank Ciesla, a Polander, living on Jefferson Street, was struck by a westbound freight train in the Erie yards about 6 o'clock last evening and died five hours later at the Emergency hospital.  Ciesla worked at the plan of the Aultman-Taylor company and after he was through for the day, he and a companion, George Gettra, were walking up the Erie railroad.  The men made an effort to get off the track, having decided that it was too dangerous.  The other story is that a shifter came down the track on which they were walking and that in escaping the shifter they got off the track in opposite directions.  It was the lottery which occurs day after day.  The companion was lucky;  he drew the grand prize, his life, and Ciesla drew the death warrant.  He was caught by a west bound freight train and thrown under the wheels.  Both feet were badly mangled so that amputation was necessary, between the ankle and the knee, and the right arm was also crushed so that it was necessary to cut it off above the elbow.  The injured man was taken to the Emergency hospital in Beelman's ambulance and two physicians worked over him.  He did not survive the shock of the operations, however, and at 11:30 p.m., passed away.  Ciesla was 53 years old and leaves a wife and two children, who are in Poland and will not know for some time of the fatal accident which has occurred to their bread winner.  He also has three children, two sons and a daughter who live in Mansfield.  The funeral will be from St. Peter's Catholic church.  [Mansfield Daily Shield:  21 July 1906]

Cissne - Chief of Police Weil received a letter today from Coroner Humphrey of Akron (OH) telling of an unknown man being killed there by a street car.  On the man's person was found the address of Wilson Ryland, 285 East Second Street, and a Catholic Bible on the fly leaf of which was "Mary Paridon from Mrs. John Roth, in remembrance of the First Holy Communion, July 4, 1897."  The Akron Beacon-Journal of Monday contains the following regarding the fatality:  "While crossing Howard Street near Market Saturday night an unknown man was struck by a Cuyahoga Falls street car and received injuries which resulted in his death at the city hospital Sunday afternoon at 3:30.  The car was not running at more than ordinary speed, but the man apparently did not see the car, and stepped upon the track.  He was struck on the left side of the face and his skull fractured.  Parks' ambulance removed him to the hospital but he never regained consciousness.  He was five feet 11 inches tall and apparently of Irish descent.  On his person was found a lot of cards and notebooks, but none of them furnish any tangible clew [sic.] to his identity.  The books indicate that he has been doing carpenter work, the cards are from people in Mansfield and Canton, while two street car slips show that he had paid fare on Elyria Traction cards.  Several tracts indicated that he was religiously inclined.  The right arm is tattooed bearing the letters "E.A.C." and the figures "1858".  It is supposed that these are his initials and the year of his birth.  On his person was found the lower part of a letter, the remainder having been torn away.  It read:  "Let me hear from you soon.  Your brother, Clem Cissne, Boise City, Idaho."  It is taken that the last letter of the tattoo mark represents the family name, Cissne.  Coroner Humphrey has had witnesses subpoenaed and will examine into the case, Monday evening.  In the meantime telegrams have been sent to the chief of police at Boise to locate anyone names Cissne and several local people whose cards or addresses were found upon the body will be asked to assist in the identification.  The body is now at Park's morgue."  Officer Madden was deputized to look into the matter.  At the Ryland home no information could be learned which might throw any light on the case.  It was learned that Mont Ryland, aged 18, left home a week ago yesterday and hasn't been heard of since.  The tattoo marks would seem to indicate a middle aged man and Ryland is a stove mounter a young man.  Edward Cissne, a telephone lineman, formerly lived in the city, but for some months he has been working in Columbus.  He is about 22 years old.  At the home of his brother, Jas. Cissne, 110 East Fourth Street, a Shield reporter learned from Mrs. Cissne that her husband has a brother Edward, also a brother Clem. who is in the west somewhere.  After the Shield man told her of what had appeared in the papers about the dead man she was inclined to the belief that it might be Mr. Cissne's father.  She stated that Mr. Cissne's father was in Columbus awhile ago to see Edward and in a letter afterward to his son James he stated that he had his son Clem's address, that he got it from Edward.  This would account for the letter on his person sighed "Your Brother, Clem Cissne, Boise, Idaho."  Mrs. Cissne remembered hearing her husband say that his father used to work at the carpenter trade.  Neither the letter from Coroner Humphrey nor the article in the Beacon-Journal gives the probable age of the dead man except that the Beacon-Journal speaks of the date 1858 on the man's arm and comments that this is evidently the year of the man's birth.  [Mansfield (OH) Daily Shield: 23 May 1905]

Cissne -- As stated in Tuesday's Shield it is believed that the unknown man who was struck by a trolley car in Akron last Saturday night and died on Sunday at the hospital at Akron as the result of his injuries is Elmer Cissne, the father James Cissne, of 110 East Fourth Street.  Mr. Cissne state Tuesday evening that when he was a child his father and mother sepaartaed and he hasn't known much about where his father has been.  The elder Cissne at one time worked at the Barnes Manufacturing company's works in this city.  He was a carpenter and would be about 47 years old, the age indicated.  On telephoning to Akron, Tuesday afternoon, it was learned that the dead man is about that age.  The initials on the dead man's arm correspond with Mr. Cissne's initials and the letter on his person written by Clem Cissne, of Boise, Idaho, to Edward Cissne at Columbus and given by the recipient to his father so that the father could write to Clem would seem to make it almost positive that the man was Elmer Cissne.  Elmer Cissne has a sister, Mrs. Mary Mann, living in Wooster and a brother, Melvin Cissne, living near Wooster.  James Cissne has not gone to Akron as yet to see about identifying the body.  It has been some time since he has seen his father and he would probably not be able to identify him as readily as some of the other relatives who had seen him more recently.  [Mansfield (OH) Daily Shield: 24 May 1905]

Clapp, Emilius -- At his residence in this city, at 6 o'clock on the morning of the 25th. inst., Emilius Clapp, aged 75 years, 3 months and 20 days.  The deceased was born in Easthampton, Mass., Dec. 5th., 1808, where he resided until the spring of 1832, when he removed to Ohio.  The same year he returned to Massachusetts, where he married Miss Lydia Hutchinson the following year, and immediately thereafter returned to Ohio and settled in Chester, Geauga Co., where he remained until 1836, when he removed to Mentor, Lake Co., whence he went to Painesville where he engaged in the manufacture of candy in connection with the manufacture of silk.  In 1844 he moved to Elyria, and after a six years' residence there, came to Mansfield in September, 1850, where he was engaged in business until the time of his death.  Emilius and Lydia Hutchinson Clapp were the parents of four children, two of whom died in childhood, and two daughters who are now living -- Mrs. Geo. C. Wise, of this city, and Mrs. Joseph H. McKee, of Grand Rapids, Mich.  Mrs. Lydia Clapp died in Mansfield, Feb. 20, 1870, and the present relict of the deceased was Miss Carrie Beardsley, of Garretsville, O., whom he married May 30, 1872.  Mr. Clapp's death was occasioned by pneumonia, the result of a severe cold he contracted but a few days ago.  The funeral of the deceased will take place from his late residence, 21 East Fourth Street, on Friday, March 28th., at P.M., under the auspices of the I.O.O.F., of which order the deceased was an honored member.  [Ohio Liberal:  26 March 1884]

Clapp, Emilius -- Another of Mansfield's Oldest Citizens Laid to Rest -- The funeral of Emilius Clapp, whose death was noted in last week's issue, took place from the late residence of the deceased, 51 East Fourth street, Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the number of those in attendance to pay their last tribute of respect to the memory of the departed being unusually large.  The services at the house were conducted by the Rev. Prof. E.B. French, of Clyde, a friend of the deceased, the Rev. Frank Russell and the Rev. A.D. Knapp, who spoke in the order named.  The remarks of the Rev. Frank Russell, pastor of the Congregational church, the place of worship attended by the deceased, were as follows:  Emilius Clapp, whose death is the occasion of this assembly to-day was born on the fifth of December, 1808, and is therefore, now between seventy-five and seventy-six years old.  He was born in Easthampton, Mass., and was the eldest of ten children.  After attending the usual years at the public schools he was educated at the Academy at Amherst.  He came to Ohio a single man in 1832, soon returned, married his first wife and settled in Geauga county, this State, in 1833.  He afterwards lived in Mentor, then in Painesville, and in Elyria.  He came to Mansfield in the autumn of 1850.  His first wife was buried here in 1870.  In 1872 he married Miss Carrie Beardsley, of Portage county, Ohio, who survives him.  Very few are spared to reach so advanced an age as he.  A large number in this assembly will for a long time recall the exceedingly pleasant occasion of our gathering in this, then happy home, the fifth of last December, to share in the celebration of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the birth of our friend, and the universal wish that many more years might be accorded him.  Mr. Clapp was born in the same year that Samuel Martin, the first white resident, settled on the site of our city, and the year also, that Richland county was organized.  He was born four years before the war of 1812.  He was eighteen years of age when both John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died.  He had attained his majority before railroads were used in the United States, was thirty years old before steam had navigated the ocean, and thirty-six years old when the telegraph was born.  Our friend was pre-eminently a religious man.  As a young man he was a member of the Congregational church in New England, and his devoutness of spirit, and his meditation upon God and heavenly things never faded from his habit.  He delighted in the service of God's house and the time is not remembered in his family when, after hearing a sermon, he did not find time to take down the Bible, find the text, read the connections and make the matter a subject of conversation, and always in a docile, kindly and reverent spirit.  I say let his example be followed and his spirit be copied before any criticism shall be made upon his faith.  He was a great reader of the word and the favorite topics of conversation were the deep things of its teachings.  His warm attachment to all members of his own family, and of theirs will always be remembered as a characteristic of his years.  The fourth generation of his happy household, now living in our midst were a part of his daily sunshine.    His business integrity has long been a proverb in the community, and no class will miss him more than the poor to whom he constantly ministered.  No wonder that during these sad days, scantily clad children have come to the house asking with tears to see the form of their dear old friend.  I do not doubt that he has realized his own sweet view of dying and death.  It had nothing of terror for him.  There was no cessation of existence, or of activity.  Leaving the body, as he often said, was only leaving a scene familiar for another scene unknown and yet to which we should find that we are no strangers.  And as that no other could, to the believer, be but a better, he felt always ready to go.  His last sentences, as his faculties seemed fitful, and flitting in their action, were of the gathering, the music, the company of friends, the joys which were dear to him on earth, and which also were a picture of the society in which he now lives.  There was little indeed about our aged brother that will not serve as a goodly example.  At the close of the exercises at the residence the services were taken in charge by the Odd Fellows' fraternity, of which order the deceased was a faithful member, and at the cemetery the funeral service of the order was read by Chaplain C.T. Foulk and Noble Grand, T.W. Ford.  [Ohio Liberal:  02 April 1884]

Clark, Elijah
-- Elijah Clark, more generally known to the people of the county as 'Squire Clark, died at his former residence in Mansfield on Friday the 13th. inst.  Mr. Clark was born in Washington county, Pa., November 9th., 1810.  He came to Richland county in the year 1815, and a few years later learned the tailor trade in the shop of John and David McCullough.  Soon after this he removed to Bellville, this county, where for a number of years, and until his health failed, he followed his trade.  In June, 1843, he was appointed postmaster of Bellville, receiving his commission from President Tyler.  He held the office only for a short time on account of change in administration.  And in 1853 he was again commissioned, and this time by Franklin Pierce, and held the office until the Douglas-Breckinridge split in the Democratic party in 1859, when Mr. Clark advocating the Douglas cause incurred the enmity of President Buchanan, who superseded him by appointing Judge Jackson his successor.  In the year 1853 he was also elected one of the Justices of the Piece of Jefferson township, a position which he occupied continuously until  his election by the people of the county to the office of Recorder in 1865.  When he entered upon the duties of the last named office he moved with his family to Mansfield, where he resided until removed by death.  Mr. Clark was re-elected to the office of Recorder before the expiration of his first term.  He was succeeded as Recorder by the present incumbent, and immediately entered the office as Deputy, a position he occupied until a short time ago, when sickness kept him at home.   Mr. Clark has been married three times.  His first wife, Sarah Newell, died within two years after their marriage, and he remained a widower until November 26th, 1835, when he married Rachel Singery, by whom he had six children, three of whom, two sons and one daughter, survive him.    His death was caused by lung and bronchial diseases from which he suffered for many years.  Against his private character not a word can be said.  While for many years he was unconnected with the church, yet his life was pure and without blemish, and he died in the family a member of the Presbyterian Church of this city.  Enemies he had none, and was a man in every respect.  Submitted by Elizabeth.  [Ohio Liberal:  18 April 1877]

Clark, Mary E.

Clark, Mary (Fulton) -- Died, about midnight of the 30th. ult., Mrs. Mary Clark, wife of Calvin Clark, fell asleep in Jesus, in the 72d. year of age.  << verse omitted >>  Mary Fulton was born in Maryland, October 7th., 1803, but lived a number of years in Ontario County, New York.  She came to this vicinity in the fall of 1823, and was married to Calvin Clark, October 7th., 1824, by Rev. Joseph Johnson, then of Mansfield.  They lived on a farm south of Shelby, owned now by Mr. Harrison Mickey, until 1831, when they settled on the farm where they have lived for 43 years.  In the winter of 1832, they both united with the Presbyterian Church on examination, under the ministry of Rev. John Wolff.  They dedicated their children to God in baptism, and often in the pioneer days of the church, was their home the place of preaching service and the prayer meeting.  Often have God's ministers found a home under their roof, and around their fire-side.  She with her husband assisted in organizing this Sabbath School, nearly forty years ago, which has continued its sessions summer and winter ever since.  Her piety was characterized by strong faith in God.  Her decisions were not made hastily, but when passed, were firmly adhered to.  While the church of her choice with its system of doctrines was near to her heart, she ever had Christian charity and love for all.  She wrought with her own hands, to raise her family, and to assist others.  Now, God has called her to that eternal rest.  A mothes [sic.] in Israel is no more, and we stop in the way to Ephrata to-day to commit her body to the dust, but to enshrine her in the memory of this whole community.  The church has lost a liberal heart, a willing hand, and a prayer-bending knee.  May many rise up to call her blessed.  But how shall we come to the home, whose earthly light has been removed.  It was the home that her sweetest influence was felt.  Dear children of the covenant, "she hath done what she could'.  It remains for you to cherish into life and growth the seeds of truth and love she has planted in your hearts.  -- W.W.A.  [Shelby Independent News:  05 November 1874, Vol. 7, No. 2]

Cline, Elizabeth (Boyce) -- On Friday afternoon, September 5th., at the residence of her son, Jacob Cline, in this city, Mrs. Elizabeth Cline, wife of John Cline, deceased, aged 77 years and 9 months.  The deceased was born in England, December 6th., 1806, and came from Lancashire with her father, Isaiah Boyce, in 1823, locating in Franklin township.  In 1826 she was married to John Cline, of Mansfield, whose death occurred about one year ago, and to them were born twelve children, of whom seven sons and two daughters are living, the daughters being Mrs. James Terman of Madison township, and Mrs. John Charritt of Indiana.  Mrs. Cline was a devout Christian and was a faithful member of the Church of Christ, or Campbellite Church.  The funeral services, conducted by Elders Allen, of Bucyrus, and G.M. Knapp, took place Sunday afternoon from the residence of her son, Jacob Cline, No. 65 West Bloom street.  [Ohio Liberal:  10 September 1884, Vol. 12, No. 22]  ** Notes from Jim Boyce regarding this obituary .... Family history says that Isaiah Boyce did have a daughter Elizabeth, but that she was born in Richland Co, and not England.  Isaiah does NOT name a daughter Elizabeth in his will of 1842.  In the front row of oldest Boyce tombstones in Pleasant Valley (Baptist) Cemetery, there is a stone on which the only thing legible is the name "Elizabeth" (The old RCO Cemetery Index said it read d/o J and J, died 1854, aged 32, but I have my doubts about that info, as well)   Family history does say that John Boyce and Jane Walker Boyce had a daughter Elizabeth, born in England, who married John Cline.  Parish records for Dunholme Parish, Lincolnshire record the baptism of an Elizabeth Boyce, daughter of John Boyce, on 7 Feb 1807.  In his will, John Boyce names as one heir his daughter Elizabeth Cline.  Interestingly enough, that Elizabeth would have been elder sister to Isaiah Boyce (not the one above) who, in 1884, was one of the wealthiest men in Richland Co.  ** Notes from Janet Newman regarding this obituary ... Took another look at the Obit of Mrs. Elizabeth Cline who died 1884.  Mary (Cline) Terman, first wife of James W. Terman, died in 1867!  Hardly could be described as still living in 1884. Everything points to the  obit as having been written by someone who was uninformed.  James W. Terman's second wife Mary Ann Armstrong, whom he married in 1868, was still alive in 1880. No indication anywhere of when and where she died. James W. Terman (1823-1888) died at his home (of TB) and was buried Mansfield Cemetery  but no mention of surviving family in brief newspaper report.  However they did manage to get his date of birth exactly.   Jim Boyce, who is the person most knowledgeable about the Boyce family, made a correction about the obituary of Mrs. Elizabeth Cline who died 1884.  It is posted as a follow-up to the obit.

Cline, Tobias  -- The body of Tobias Cline, of the firm of Cline & Hamblin, contractors, was found about 20 feet east of the Bloom Street crossing of the P.F. railroad at 8:30 Thursday night.  The body was lying diagonally between the rails, face upwards, with the head towards the north.  The finders, the crew of the shifting engine, with the assistance of George Hunt and other employees of the bending works, who were working close by, laid the body on a board and carried it to the depot.  When the body was found life was not yet extinct, but before it was deposited on a bench at the depot all signs of life had departed.  After the coroner had been notified the mangled corpse was taken to the home at 116 East Third Street, where Dr. Francis prepared it for burial.  There were doubts at first as to the cause of Cline's death, several plausible accounts being in circulation just after the accident.  Next morning, however, all doubts were set at rest by the finding of blood and hair upon two cars which were attached to the front end of the shifting engine, to be taken to Strong & Leiter's new side track.  The engineer and fireman of the engine say that it is probable that Cline was knocked down and the brake beams and other parts of machinery that are near the ground pressed the head down so hard that a limestone pebble was driven into the skull which caused death.  The stone was bout three quarters of an inch in diameter and was firmly embedded in the temple bone.  The face and other parts of the body were terribly cut by limestone pebbles, but no other bones were broken.  The crew of the shifting engine noticed something white lying on the track when the cars were taken to the siding, but it was thought to be a piece of paper or a white dog, that was often on the track.  In going back after having set the two cars on the sidetrack, the engine ran over the body again before it was discovered to be the body of a man.  The watch of the dead man was picked up at the Bloom Street crossing which indicates that Cline had just stepped on the track when the cars struck him, he no doubt being unaware of the near approach of the cars on account of his defective hearing.  Mr. Cline was born in Germany, March 10, 1833, and was, consequently, in his 55th. year.  He came to this country when he was nineteen years old and in a few years afterward he was married.  Only one child, a daughter, was born to him and she is now the wife of Matthew L. Donnan, of No. 28 North Water Street.  The deceased man's father and stepmother, Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Cline, resided with him.  Cline & Hamblin's men, employed on the Wood Street contract were dismissed Friday morning until Monday.  Mr. Cline had been at Marion Thursday to buy macadam for this work and he was on his way home when the accident occurred.  The funeral took place from his late residence, Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock.  --  [Mansfield Weekly News:  13 October 1887, Vol. 3, No. 45]

Cline, William -- SHELBY, O., APRIL 19 -- Wm. Cline, an unmarried and rather eccentric man, about 45 years of age, who resided with his father on North Broadway, was instantly killed on the B.&O. railroad at noon yesterday.  Cline was in the habit of picking up coal on the road and disposing of it to his neighbors.  A long practice in the business and rendered him somewhat careless of trains and he was often seen to run along on the track ahead of a train until it was almost upon him, when he would get off the track.  It was while he was doing this, evidently trying to see how near he could allow the train to approach him and yet escape, that he seemed to miscalculate the speed of the train and was overtaken and killed.  An arm and leg were broken, the back part of his skull crushed and the body otherwise mangled.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  27 April 1889, Vol. LXXI, No. 49]

Close, aged about 40 years.  It is a sad duty, that compels us to announce the death of any one of our prominent citizens, yet from that call there is no escape.  We all must heed it.  Our readers may not all know, hence we state, that Mrs. Close has been in failing health since the 12th. of March last.  Not with any marked disease, but nevertheless stricken with general debility and growing gradually weaker until on May 30th., she was compelled to keep her bed, since which time the progress of disease has been toward the result above recorded.  Mrs. Close left six children, really all of tender age, to be taken care of by her sorrowing companion.  The sympathies of the whole community are with him, but while this all is comforting, his own strength of mind must lead him through this valley of affliction.  It is the old, old story.  Having recently moved into a fine new mansion in the suburbs of Shelby, and in the enjoyment of every comfort that could add to the enjoyment of life, she was removed from her family in the very midst of her usefulness and enjoyment of life.   In view of the fact that Mr. Close has been for years a prominent member of the Fraternity, the Masonic Lodge at a special meeting on Wednesday, ...  attended the funeral in a body in the afternoon at 3 o'clock.  Rev. Pierce of Crestline, assisted by Rev. Foust of Shelby, assisted in the ceremonies.  [Shelby Independent News:  10 July 1873, Vol. 5, No. 37]
