Daingerfield, W.A. -- "Died, in the city of Washington, W.A. Daingerfield, Esq., only son of the late R.T. Daingerfield, in the 29th. year of his age.  Mr. Daingerfield was admitted to the bar of the District of Columbia about four years ago.  Soon after commencing his career he was sorely afflicted with the disease which terminated his life on the 7th. of May, 1875.  The young lawyer's fair flowers of hope were all blighted by disease and death.  He met his sad fate with quiet, manly firmness.  For a long time he may be said to have looked at death face to face in the near future.  His faithful courage never was shaken.  His death was sudden.  Though expected at some not very distant day, his sisters were shocked at the swiftness of the summons.  The first information of a change in his condition for the worse, told them that all was ended for their brother in this world;  it cares and sorrows, its joys and hopes.  The human flower the sisters loved so well is now planted in earth, to bloom again with immortal beauty in heaven.  This is our faith and hope.  -- A.B."  The above is taken from the Washington Chronicle of the 11th. inst.  Mr. Daingerfield, whose premature death is announced, was at one time a resident of Mansfield, and will be remembered by many as a young man of more than ordinary attainments;  a genial gentleman, kind and amiable in his disposition, with a high sense of honor.  He came to Mansfield in June 1865, from Xenia, Ohio, read law with Messrs. Burns & Burns;  was admitted to the bar in October, 1867, after passing a rigid and thorough examination, with credit to himself and his preceptors.  After his admission to the bar, he returned to Cincinnati, where his sisters then resided, and after spending a short time seeking a location, he finally settled in Washington City was admitted to the bar of that city, and commenced the practice of the law, determined to contend with the old and able practitioners of the Federal courts, and win his way to an honorable distinction in the profession, he had by his industry and perseverance, laid the foundation of a brilliant future.  But alas, how vain are all human anticipations -- he has gone to the country "beyond the river".  His friends have our sincerest sympathies.  -- B.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  22 May 1875]

Davis, Durbin "Derb" -- Coroner Baughman held an inquest Friday evening at Ganges over the body of Durbin Davis, the young man, aged 22 years, who was found dead along the roadside Friday afternoon, an account of which was given in Friday's News.  The body of the young man was found along the road, near the home of Ben Cline, about one and a half miles west of Ganges.  The discovery was made by Chester Wyerman and Stella Burgoyne, who were driving along the road about 2 o'clock in a buggy.  They drove to Ganges and reported the death.  Young Davis was dead when found.  He was removed to the home of his father, Otis Davis, in Ganges, later in the afternoon and it was there that the inquest was held by the coroner.  Five witnesses were examined:  Otis Davis, Dr. Lybarger, Wesley Fickes, Stella Burgoyne and Chester Wyerman.  The evidence was to the effect that young Davis left home about 10 o'clock Friday morning on a borrowed bicycle to go to Shelby after some laundry.  He was on the return trip when death overtook him.  The evidence seemed to show that he had taken sick as he was riding along and had dismounted from the wheel, trundling it along beside him.  He had sat down at the road side and the wheel was leaning against him.  No evidence of struggle was seen and death must have come suddenly as he sat there.  The young man had been treated for heart trouble several years ago, but of late there had been no complaint from this source.  He was evidently unaccustomed to riding a wheel any distance and had probably over exerted himself, thus bringing on the attack which resulted in his sudden death.  It is stated that he received a hard fall from the wheel Friday and this may have contributed toward causing his death.  He had been an employee of the Shelby tube works.  Funeral services Saturday afternoon at the Ganges church.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  30 August 1898, Vol. 14, No. 72]

Davis, Durbin "Derb" -- Ganges.  Derb Davis, a son of Mr. & Mrs. Otis Davis, of this place, was seized with heart failure last Friday while returning from Shelby on his wheel, and he fell dead about one mile west of here.  He had alighted from his wheel before he fell.  Derb left home that morning to transact some business and was apparently well and in good spirits, although he had been affected with heart trouble for several years.  He was good-hearted and industrious and well liked by all who knew him.  The sudden demise was a severe shock to his parents, brother and sister, also to the community.  He was past 22 years of age.  The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Dr. Loose at the church Sunday at 10 a.m.  The remains were laid to rest in the Ganges Cemetery.  The bereaved family have the sympathy of the community.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  02 September 1898, Vol. 14, No. 73]

Dawsey, David -- Bellville.  Mr. David Phelps has informed us that he has just received news of the fate of Mr. David Dawsey.  It will be remembered by old citizens that he left Bellville in 1853, going overland to California.  From California he went to Oregon and thence to Idaho Territory in which territory he located a stock ranch at the mouth of the Brunean River.  He lived there till 1878 or 1879 when he accidentally shot and killed himself.  This will be of interest to his many relatives in this vicinity, who up to this time have had no idea where Mr. Dawsey was or what business he was engaged in.  His life if written would probably be quite romantic.  --  [Bellville Star:  17 December 1885, Vol. 9, No. 12]

DeHart, Thomas -- Thomas DeHart, a tailor in the employ of Gustav W. Brunk, died very suddenly this morning about 6:30 o'clock at his home, 124 West Fourth Street.  He got up quite early this morning and was downstairs doing some work when he complained to his wife that he was not feeling well.  He complained of a pain in his back and asked that she make him a mustard plaster.  While Mrs. DeHart was doing this he came upstairs and went to bed.  When Mrs. DeHart came into the room she asked him how he was feeling and he replied that he had been very short of breath but that now he was able to breathe a little easier.  She noticed that he looked peculiar and as he seemed to be getting worse she ran for assistance, calling in Mrs. Thomas Shocker, a neighbor, and when she returned he was breathing his last.  Medical aid was summoned and Dr. Lockard responded but when he arrived Mr. DeHart had passed away.  The cause of death was pronounced to be heart failure.  Mr. DeHart was 46 years of age and leaves a wife, formerly Miss Mary Dull, of Ashland, and two sons, Earl, aged 12, and Marion, aged 7.  For a number of years Mr. DeHart resided at Ashland, and came to this city about two years ago.  His demise came as a very sudden and terrible blow to wife, family and friends and Mrs. DeHart is prostrated as a result of the shock.  [Mansfield News: 30 August 1901, Vol. 17, No. 154]

DePue, J.S. -- The 4th. of July always has its casualties on account of the various modes of celebrating the day, and we have to record a sudden death, by drowning, and the only accident that occurred -- that of J.S. DePue, master carpenter of this city, who was drowned in the Petersburg Lake, under the following circumstances:  Mr. Depue with wife and child made a visit in his buggy to some relatives beyond Petersburg (now known as Mifflin) on the 4th. and upon returning about 3 o'clock, stopped at the Petersburg Lake, where some friends were about to take a swim, and had shoved out the boat to cross to the other side to undress.  He called to them to take him in;  his wife and child remaining on the bank.  There were four persons in the boat -- Thos. Ford, Jacob McCullough, Chas. Blower and Mr. Depue, and after rowing to the other side prepared for a swim in water from twelve to fifteen feet deep.  Mr. Ford having swam out a considerable distance upon returning and getting into the boat, heard a gurgling noise and looking around saw Mr. Depue sinking not more than ten feet from the boat, the upper part of his head being yet discernable.  Mr. Ford jumped in after him, but he sank so rapidly that he could not reach him, and he did not come up again.  It is supposed that he died from heart disease before he went down, as he was known to have an affection of the heart.  This occurred not more than fifteen minutes after he left his wife and child in glowing spirits.  His wife knew nothing of this sad catastrophe until the boat returned without him, and her agony of mind may be conceived when the terrible fact was broken to her.  Hooks were sent for to Petersburg, and the Lake dragged till night without securing the body;  but on Sabbath morning it was raised by a fishing spear, and his body brought to Mansfield.  On Monday his remains were followed to the cemetery, accompanied by a large number of friends.  He was a very estimable young man, aged about thirty -- a member of the Lutheran church and librarian of the Sunday school.  He was also a member of the Hook and Ladder company, and highly esteemed by all who knew him.  His sorrowing wife and family have the sympathy of our citizens;  but that does not fill the vacant chair, or soothe the aching heart.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  11 July 1874]

Dice was sitting quietly in the kitchen at his home reading, while his wife was preparing breakfast. Suddenly and without warning the dread summons came and Dice dropped on the floor at his wife's feet -- dead. It is supposed that heart disease was the cause of his death.

Dickson, James -- Daily Shield, May 31.  Persons who were about the city at 2:30 yesterday morning were startled by the report that James Dickson had met a sudden and violent death.  Jas. Dickson has been a familiar figure about Mansfield for many years and was known to nearly every citizen within the corporate limits, as well as throughout Richland County.  For several days the old gentleman had been drinking more or less.  On Monday he was moving about as usual and none of his friends dreamed that his last hour was so near.  When on a spree Dickson was wont to become in such condition that he was not responsible for himself and would wander off to some distant part of the city.  Shortly after 2 o'clock Tuesday morning Dickson was walking along the Pennsylvania railroad track opposite the Oliver Chilled Plow Works.  He was discovered by the engineer of the third section of west bound "Royal Red" train, and, although the whistle was pulled repeatedly, Dickson was either unable to hear or did not realize his position.  The engine struck the unfortunate man on the side, breaking three ribs and killing him instantly.  The remains were picked up and conveyed to the union depot, where they were placed upon a stretcher and subsequently viewed by Coroner Maglott.  An examination of the effects of the dead man showed that he carried $80.10 in cash upon his person, together with several notes.  A report circulated about the city last night to the effect that Mr. Dickson had $600 in cash in his pockets could not be verified.  As soon as possible the remains were removed by Undertaker J.A. Niman to the family residence on West Third Street, where they were prepared for burial.  Mr. Dickson leaves a wife and eight children.  The deceased was born in New York state and was 69 years of age.  He removed to this county about 43 years ago and has resided here ever since, with the exception of a short time spent in California during the gold excitement.  He was one of the largest land-owners in the county and his estate, it is thought, will reach a hundred thousand dollars.  At one time Mr. Dickson was engaged in the banking business in the block at the southwest corner of Main and Third Streets, of which he is the owner.  The deceased also owns property in Philadelphia, Toledo and other cities.  The funeral will be held from the family residence at 2:30 tomorrow afternoon.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  03 June 1893]

Dickson, Mrs. Henry -- Lexington.  Mrs. Henry Dickson was buried on Tuesday, having died on Sunday evening of la grippe.  Our sympathy goes out to Mr. Dickson and his afflicted family.  Mrs. Dickson was an excellent woman and will be sadly missed by those who knew her.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  09 January 1892]

He became associated with the Culter & Sandmeyer company in which ten years later he acquired a one-forth interest, the firm dissolving five years ago when the W. D. Dickson plumbing, Heating and roofing company was organized with Mr. Dickson as president. He was the inventor of an indirect heating system which is largely in use. He was largely identified with other business enterprises in Peoria and was one of the largest property owners in the city, leaving an estate of about $300,000.

Dise, ---- -- Lexington.  The tragic death of the 5-year-old daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Dise, Friday afternoon, caused the most somber gloom to pervade many hearts.  It was killed by the accidental discharge of a shot gun in the hands of her young brother, Foster, and in all inexplicable way.  Mr. Dise lives one-half mile northwest of here and the affair occurred in the barn.  Foster had been hunting and had set the gun down in the barn and his father ordered him to take it to the house.  Foster picked up the gun and almost immediately there was a terrific report and the contents of the gun tore a huge, gaping hole in the breast of the child, which had been prattling in childish glee.  Lie was extinct in a minute or two and Mr. Dise and others who were present were thrilled with horror by the ghastly scene.  Mr. and Mrs. Dise are well known and most respected people and the hearts of their many friends beat responsive to the bitter anguish that fills their hearts over the tragic fate of their child.  The child is sister of Mrs. A. Lantz, of Augustine Avenue, in Mansfield.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  25 October 1898, Vol. 14, No. 88]

Donnan, Andrew -- DIED -- Near Mansfield, Sept. 23d., Andrew Donnan, aged 75 years. Andrew Donnan was born in Scotland in the Shire of Galoway, May 4, 1809, and died near Mansfield, Richland County, Ohio, September 23, 1884. He was the son of David and Margaret Donnan who emigrated to America with their family of four sons and one daughter when Andrew was five years old. He always retained a vivid recollection of crossing the ocean. The family settled first in Belmont County, Ohio, where they remained three years, then purchased the farm in Richland County five miles from what is now the city of Mansfield. There the father and mother spent the rest of their lives, and from that place they were carried to their last long home. Upon becoming settled they united with the Seceder's Church of Mansfield, of which Rev. Mr. Hineman was pastor for many years, he was Elder to the end of life. Whether they brought letters from Scotland is not known, but it is probable that they did. Mrs. Margaret Donnan was a woman of earnest, decisive character, never afraid to speak what she deemed the truth on any subject. When her husband was removed by death, her voice had never been heard in prayer, yet from that time on through life she kept up family worship and asked a blessing at the table. Andrew, the subject of this sketch, remembered but little of his early childhood in the "Mither country", but it was evident that the "gude" woman's impress was upon the son. From her he inherited those peculiar traits of character that made him wherever he was the respected neighbor, kind and true friend and loyal citizen. He was a lover of children, and many of that class who know will long remember with pleasure his occasional visits to their homes. In 1835 Andrew went to Mt. Gilead to live, where he worked twelve or fifteen years at his trade as tanner. January 1, 1837, he united in marriage with Miss Joanna Potter at the residence of Mrs. Emeline Hicks, the bride's sister. From Gilead he went to Lincoln Twp., and from there to Bennington, near the Friend's Church, spending a few years only in each place. In 1866 he moved with his family to Morton's Corners where during the following winter he was converted under the ministry of Rev. G.W. Bainum of the Wesleyan Methodist Church. Upon removing to Richland County in 1875 he and his wife joined by letter with the United Presbyterian Church of Mansfield, of which he was a worthy member at the time of his death. During his last illness he was a sufferer, but no word of mourning escaped his lips. As long as he was able he preferred to wait upon himself, but so rapid was the inroad of dread disease that his naturally strong constitution soon gave way, and the hands that were hard and stiffened with toil became powerless to move. Numerous friends and neighbors visited him and were ever ready to assist in ministering to his needs. Able physicians were in attendance, but no power was found to grapple with the king of terrors and rescue the victim from this relentless grasp. His testimony amid his sufferings, while yet his intellect was undimed was "if it is the Lord's will to take me now, I am ready. I know that my Redeemer liveth." The funeral services were at the house, conducted by Rev. Mr. Anderson, assisted by the Presbyterian minister. Mr. Donnan's four sons were present at the funeral and carried the remains of their honored father to the hearse, and at the cemetery from the hearse to his final resting place. The wife of his youth survives to walk a lonely pathway a few days, for it cannot be long until another summons will come, and those separate for a little season will be reunited to pass an unbroken eternity in praise to Him who has washed them and made them white in His own precious blood. -- [MANSFIELD HERALD: 09 October 1884, Vol. 34, No. 47]

Douglas, Flora Elizabeth (Thorpe) -- Died, on the morning of the 31st. ult., Mrs. Flora Elizabeth Douglas, wife of Daniel Douglas, in the twentieth year of her age.  In this mysterious and sad bereavement, Mr. Douglas has the heart-felt sympathies of many in our community.  Having bought a home in our town, he hoped to enjoy it with her, the sharer of life's brief joys.  So hopeful and buoyant, thus soon are those hopes blasted.  This is the earthward side of the cloud.  Above, there is a God who reigns.  He is not an arbitrary tyrant, but a wise and merciful God.  He doeth all things well.   Mrs. Douglas was a daughter of David Thorpe, of Batavia, N.Y., who died some two years ago.  She was beloved by all who knew her as a lady of culture and amiability.  She was born in Batavia, and came to this place with her husband, about one year ago.  Though her stay was brief, she will not soon be forgotten.  A sweet bud that was not permitted to bloom on earth, was laid in this mother's lifeless arms, and both were taken to Batavia, N.Y., for interment.  The tender nursing of heaven, and she who gave up her life for its life, now live beyond the river, their bodies in sweet embrace wait the arch-angel's trump, when together, they shall rise clothed with immortality.  [Shelby (OH) Independent News: 10 April 1873, Vol. 5, No. 24]

Douglass, Augustus Allen -- A Well Known Citizen and Lawyer Passes From Earth. Augustus Allen Douglass was born in Monroe township, Richland county, Ohio, Oct. 30, 1850. He died at his home in Mansfield, Wednesday, Aug. (, 1911. These words express the beginning and the end of a brief and notable career. Mr. Douglass was the eldest son and eldest child of John J. Douglass and Sophia (Shrack) Douglass. His father and mother were prominent in the early history of that township, and the early life of the deceased was one of rugged hardships, incident to and industrious boyhood of farm toil. He early forged forward in the activities of the district school and later acquired an academic education in Greentown Academy under the tutorship of Prof. Sample, and his acquirements were such that at the early age of seventeen, he distinguished himself as a teacher in the common schools. His persevering leadership, his indomitable courage, his tireless industry and his splendid scholarship, forced him into recognition, so that in 1880, he was elected a school examiner of this county, serving with great distinction, and in 1882 he was by the state examiners, awarded a teacher's life certificate. Mr. Douglass, in close succession, was superintendent of the schools of Shiloh and Bellville, so that by his activities and his close touch with public affairs, he acquired an extensive and meritorious acquaintance throughout Richland and surrounding counties. In 1885, he was admitted to the practice of law, and almost immediately in 1890 was elected prosecuting attorney of Richland county and in 1893 was re-elected by an increased and almost phenomenal majority, serving in all, a period of six years. His official life in that department was wholly in keeping with the brilliancy of his career in every step of life, whether in the school room or at the forum: whether his energies and abilities were tasked for the punishment of crime, or in the defense of the innocent; whether the civil warfare was in the criminal courts or the civil; whether to the jury or the judge, it was always waged with unabating energy, with distinguished ability and fidelity to the end. Mr. Douglass was a Mason, an Odd Fellow, a K. of P., a K. G. E., and a member of the National Union. In his church affiliation, he was a follower of Martin Luther. In 1895 he was married to Miss Ida Thompson, of which union two children were born, Dong Hughes and Ida Corrinne, all of whom survive him, except the dear boy, Don Hughes, who was laid to rest Nov. 12, 1901. Mr. Douglass is also survived by his brother, Judge S. M. Douglass, of this city, and his sister, Elizabeth Hazlett, of Ashland, besides a host of relatives and a myriad of friends. His love and fidelity to a devoted wife and their children was a predominating trait of his character and a tribute to his memory. With the passing of Mr. Douglass, the community has lost a worthy member and the bar of Ohio a leader who is without a peer. The funeral services will be held at the family residence in this city, Friday, August 11, at 3:30 p. m. Submitted by Jean and Faye. (The Mansfield News, Wednesday, August 9, 1911)

Douglass, John J. -- Ex-Treasurer John J. Douglass peacefully passed away at 1:35 o'clock this afternoon, at his residence, No. 103 Marion Avenue.  Mr. Douglass has for the past two years been in failing health, but it has been only a few weeks since was compelled to take to his bed.  He suffered from a complication of diseases and for several days past and has been lying in a comatose state and although his death was momentarily expected it was thought he might hover at death's door for some weeks, but at the time above mentioned the angel of death beckoned and his spirit quietly took its flight to the other shore.  At the death bed were present his children, Augustus A. and S.M. Douglass, of this city, and Mrs. Elizabeth Hazelett, of Bellville.  John J. Douglass was born in Westmoreland County, Pa., December 22, 1821.  His father's name was Samuel Douglass and his mother's maiden name was McCurdy.  He was of Scotch-Irish descent.  His father removed with his family to Worthington Township, this county, in November, 1829.  They continued to reside there until March 1, 1831, when they removed to Monroe Township, where the elder Mr. Douglass purchased the southwest quarter of section 28, on which he settled with his family.  As Samuel Douglass was a very energetic man, John J. Douglass, his only son, was not permitted to remain idle.  He was naturally gifted with more than ordinary intelligence and was possessed of indomitable energy.  He early qualified himself as a school teacher and followed that profession for a number of years.  On January 1, 1850, he was married to Miss Sophia Schrack.  With her he removed to the "old homestead", which, in the meantime, had become his property.  For about ten years after the war Mr. Douglass was employed by the P.F.W.&C. railroad as walking auditor.  Mr. Douglass was Richland County's auditor for two terms from 1856 to 1860.  In 1882 the Democrats selected him as their candidate for County Treasurer.  He was elected and in April of that year he moved his family to this city.  He has also held numerous township offices and at the time of his death was a trustee of the Children's Home.  Mr. Douglass was an Odd Fellow and had passed every chair in that organization.  He also belonged to the Masonic fraternity, being a member of Mansfield Lodge, No. 35, of this city.  Mr. Douglass was the father of four children:  Prosecuting Attorney A.A. Douglass, ex-City Solicitor S.M. Douglass, both of this city;  Mrs. Elizabeth Hazelett, of Bellville, and Olive, a daughter, who died in infancy.  His beloved wife and helpmate died January 14th., 1892, after a short illness.  Mr. Douglass had a large circle of friends who loved him in life and sincerely sympathize with his children in their sad affliction, the loss of a devoted parent.  He was amiable in business and was possessed of pluck and energy which enabled him to rise from a humble station to one of honor and trust.  In his death Richland County loses a citizen whose place will not soon be filled.  The funeral services will be held Friday at the residence at 1:30 o'clock (local time) and at 2 o'clock at the First English Lutheran church, of which the deceased has been a member for 25 years.  Dr. H.L. Wiles will conduct the ceremony.  Interment in the Mansfield Cemetery.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 December 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 28]  * Image *

Douglass, Sophia (Schrack) -- The public generally will be grieved to learn that Mrs. Sophia Douglass, wife of Ex-County Treasurer J.J. Douglass, well known all over the county, died at the family residence on Marion Avenue about 9:30 last night.  The deceased had been for some time the victim of ills attending old age, but was supposed to be recovering and felt much better than usual yesterday.  In the evening, however, she was attacked with heart failure and rapidly grew worse, expiring at the hour above named.  Mrs. Douglass, nee Schrack, was born in Monroe Township, this county, a little over 63 years ago.  In 1850 she was married to Mr. Douglass.  She was the mother of four children, three of whom, Prosecuting Attorney A.A. Douglass and Ex-City Solicitor S.M. Douglass, of this city, and Mrs. Elizabeth Hazlett, of Independence, with their father, survive her.  For many years she was a member of the Christian church, but nine years ago attached herself to the Baptist church of this city, which she has ever since remained a faithful adherent.  The funeral services will be held at the residence at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. H.A. Sumrell officiating, assisted by Dr. H.L. Wiles.  Interment in the Mansfield Cemetery.  The relatives and friends of the deceased have the sympathy of the entire community.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  23 January 1892]

Douglass, Sophia (Schrack) -- Sophia (Schrack) Douglass was born in Monroe Township, Richland County, Ohio, November 26th., A.D. 1828;  she died at her home, 38 Marion Avenue, in the city of Mansfield on January 14th., 1892, at 9:30 p.m.  She was married to John J. Douglass, January 1st., A.D. 1850, at Mansfield by Rev. James Johnson at his residence, situated on the site now occupied by the Web Factory on Park Avenue East.  She was the mother of of four children, namely:  A.A. Douglass, S.M. Douglass, -ary E. Hazlett and Olive Douglass, the three former surviving her, the latter having died in infancy.  In the spring following her marriage, she, with her husband, located on a farm of 80 acres in Monroe township, only 35 acres of which was then cleared.  She endured many of the hardships and deprivations of pioneer life;  by her frugality and earnest toil she aided her husband in not only making fit for the plow every acre of their early home, but helped to add more thereto.  On the 19th. day of April, 1883, she, with her husband, left their country home, the fruit of their years of labor, and moved to this city, to the place where she resided at the time of her death.  A most peculiar coincidence connected with her decease was the fact that two of her sisters died within a few days of her death, viz.:  Mrs. Anna McDanel of Columbia City, Ind., aged 51 years, being one and Mary Jefferies of Sevastopol, Ind., aged 73 years, being the other.  Mrs. Douglass was the seventh daughter of a family of twelve children of David and Elizabeth Schrack, who emigrated to this country at a very early day.  Mrs. Douglass was a pure and exemplary Christian woman.  She raised her children in the belief of the Savior, never missing an opportunity to impress upon them the necessity of an upright life;  for a number of years she was a member of the Disciple church, but in 1883 she united with the Baptist church of this city.  This was her chosen church and of which she was a devoted sincere and loyal member.  Her enthusiasm for the principles of her church, her unalloyed belief in the Savior of mankind could not be questioned.  As a mother it is enough to say that by her children she was idolized and that her loving kindness is stamped indelibly on their memories.  She was a good and kind mother, entitled to the grateful benedictions of her children.  As a neighbor she observed the Golden Rule in a practical manner.  During her short illness, her death and burial, many acts of kindness were done and proffered by those of her neighbors that fully showed their high appreciation of her and her life work, none of which kind acts can by the family left behind, ever be forgotten.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  13 February 1892]

Downs, William -- William Downs, who resides on a farm near Ontario, died at his home at 4 o'clock this morning.  His death was sudden and unlooked for.  Apparently he was in as good health when he retired last night as he had ever been, but at 4 o'clock he was taken with a fainting spell and died in a few minutes.  The deceased was about 65 years of age and was a resident of this city for many years, during which time he worked in the Aultman-Taylor carpenter shop.  Death was caused by heart disease.  Funeral services at the residence at 1 o'clock Saturday, Feb. 22.  The funeral cortege will be met by McLaughlin Post, G.A.R., at Memorial Hall at 2:30 o'clock.  He was a private in William McLaughlin's company during the Mexican War and was a private in General McLaughlin's squadron during the Civil War.  -- [Mansfield Evening News: 20 February 1890, Vol. 5, No. 298]

Downs, William -- Wm. Downs died in bed this morning of heart disease.  Himself and wife resided last night at their home, 3½ miles west of the city on the Galion Road, at the usual hour, and the deceased was apparently in the best of health.  Shortly before 4 o'clock this morning his wife was awakened by his heavy breathing.  She arose with the intention of lighting a lamp, but before she returned to the bedside her husband was dead.  Mr. Downs was born in 1827 and was, therefore, 62 years old.  When only a mere lad he went with Capt. McLaughlin's company to Mexico, where he served during the Mexican War, returning to this city at its close.  In 1861 the deceased again responded to the call of his country and enlisted under his old commander in the McLaughlin squadron.  Here he remained during the whole four years of conflict and, although a veteran of two wars, he never was wounded.  He was a carpenter by trade and was employed at the A.-T. works for a number of years, during which time, he resided on Park Avenue East.  He moved to his late home about three years ago.  The funeral will take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, Rev. N.S. Albright officiating.  The funeral will be at the Memorial Building between the hours of 2:30 and 3 o'clock.  All G.A.R. comrades are expected to be at the building at this hour and participate in the exercises from that point.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  22 February 1890, Vol. LXXII, No. 40]

Drennan, Manuel J. -- Professor Manuel J. Drennan, brother of our late townsman, William W. Drennan, and of Mrs. Artie McDonough, died at the home of his niece, Mrs. Wm. Hudson Harper, Monday, August 31, 1914, and was brought to Plymouth and laid to rest with his father and mother, brother and sister, in Greenlawn Cemetery, Friday morning, Sept. 3, 1914.  He was born in Plymouth, Ohio, Sept. 25, 1833.  His studious tendencies guided him to Oberlin College, from which he graduated, afterward studying at the University of Halle, Germany.  He heeded the call of the church by preparing for the Presbyterian ministry at Union Theological Seminary, New York.  Among his early services was a pastorate at Madison, Indiana, and work as a teacher in Hanover College in that city.  Later his growing scholarship commended him to the publishers of Appleton's Encyclopedia, from this employment being invited to Harvard University as an instructor in the department of English.  Here were valued days in the company of President Eliot, Prof. Barrett Wendell, Prof. William James, Prof. Dyer, Dean Briggs, Prof. Palmer, and here were founded memories which the careers of various esteemed pupils sustained in after years.  In 1883 Professor Drennan was called to Vassar College to become dean of the English department, where he remained twelve years, this period of service being followed after an interval, in the closing of his life as a teacher, by a year at Fisk University, Nashville.  Professor Drennan had not married, and so in his later days, as throughout his life, his chief interest was in his books.  His literary tastes and attainments were classical, rather than contemporary, his scholarship seeking refreshments in English, German and French masters, in Anglo-Saxon and sociological science too.  As a writer and conversationalist he was a purist, and his deportment was marked by the amiability and courtesy which tradition still treasures as characteristic of a gentleman of the old school.  He was of Revolutionary lineage, of Irish and Dutch stock.  His nearest of kin elsewhere resident are his nieces, Mrs. Wm. H. Harper of Evanston, Ill., Mrs. W.J. Geer of Galion, Ohio, his nephews, John P. Drennan of Decatur, Ill. and from Plymouth, G.B. Drennan and Robt. McDonough, and a godson is Paul Drennan Cravath of New York.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  05 September 1914, Vol. 61, No. 42]

Durbin, John -- With 102 years, 10 months and 4 days to his credit, the venerable John Durbin, of this county, closed his eyes in death yesterday morning.  He had been ailing a good deal for the past week and became seriously ill during the forty-eight hours preceding his demise, which came peacefully and happily at last.  The unwonted age to which he had attained made a conspicuous figure in Willamette Valley history, aside from the intimate relation he bore personally in the making of that history, by deed and word, through the fifty-two years of his career sent in this part of the world.  For the past four years decedent has lived at the home of Duncan Ross, a grandson-in-law, near Howell Prairie, and has moved about but little during that period, the most notable departure from this rule being the visit he made in September, 1894, to the home of his son, Solomon, three miles east of Salem, where, on the 13th. day of that month five generations of his descendants celebrated the centennial anniversary of the patriarch's birth, by a splendid reunion and banquet, in itself one of the historical incidents in the annals of Marion County.  At this great function the centenarian accomplished the extraordinary feat of beating his niece, Mrs. Farley, of Dallas, in a foot race from the front door to the gate, his success proving how well maintained was the superb physical strength that had been his through life.  John Durbin was born near Brownsville, Fayette County, Pa., on September 13, 1794 and in 1800 moved with his family to Richland County, Ohio, where in 1820, he was married to Sarah Fitting.  They lived together until about three years ago, when she, at the age of 92, passed to the other shore to await his coming.  Of this union there were ten children, Casper J., Rebecca, Fanny A., John and Sarah (twins), Solomon, Isaac and Daniel (twins), Mary J. and Ruth A.  The family moved from Ohio to Hancock County, Illinois, in 1842, but in the same year moved to Clayton County, Missouri, from which place they came to Marion County, Oregon, in the spring of 1845, where the family have prospered and multiplied ever since.  [reprinted from the Salem (OR) Weekly Statesman:  23 July 1897]

Dyer, Samuel -- From a private letter to Rev. Isaac Leedy we learn that Samuel B. Dyer, the oldest brother of Dr. S.P. Dyer, of Bellville, died at his residence in Tennessee, about the 14th. of last month.  The cause of his death was injuries received from a falling tree.  He employed persons to do some chopping on his farm, and he was picking brush about the tree at which they were at work, and when it fell he was in the way.  He lived about ten days after the accident.  He formerly resided in Perry Township, this county near Bangor, where he was brought up and resided the greater part of his life.  He lived a bachelor many years, but some years ago he married Mary A. Hursberger [Harsberger] and was the father of several children.  He advised his family to move to this locality after his death.  He moved to Tennessee a few years ago.  O.P. Dyer writes that the deceased, his brother, was nearly 63 years old at the time of his death, and the injuries causing his death were on the back of his head.  --  [Bellville Star:  05 April 1883, Vol. 6, No. 27]
