Goemann, Henry L. -- H. L. Goemann Dies -- Photo Caption: Henry L. Goemann, above it, six leader and organizer of the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, died today at General hospital. He had been afflicted with a heart condition for some time. Death claims civic leader -- H. L. Goemann, 77, organizer of Chamber of Commerce, succumbs at hospital. The city of Mansfield lost one of its greatest friends with the death early this morning of Henry Louis Goemann, 77, organizer of the present Chamber of Commerce and a figure of national importance. His death came unexpectedly at 5:00 a.m. today at General Hospital where he had been taken Tuesday afternoon for rest and care. Although he had suffered from a heart condition for three years, he had been about his daily business until last Saturday. Although he had been a resident of Mansfield for less than a quarter of a century, few men had given more to the business development of the city since the turn of the century. Mr. Goemann was born in Cincinnati June 5, 1863 and it was in that city that he had started his chamber of commerce work. He joined when he was 21 years old, had been a member of some City Commerce Association continuously since. He is believed to be one of the oldest members in the state in point of service. In 1916 he reorganized a Mansfield Chamber of Commerce and served as president for four years. For the past 10 years he had been counselor from the local chamber to the United States Chamber of Commerce and had gone to every annual meeting in Washington. In May, 1934, when A. D. Caddell resigned as secretary of the Mansfield Chamber of Commerce, Mr. Goemann took over those duties for five months, serving without remuneration. He had served on a number of important chamber committees, including national legislation, grain and transportation. In 1933, as local representative of the bondholders' committee of the empire sheet and tin plate Co., be worked untiringly to re- organized that industry in order to keep in Mansfield. In 1917, while president of the Chamber of Commerce he was named to the City Planning Commission where he served for a number of years. Through at his adult years he had been an ardent member of the Republican Party and at one time was candidate for mayor. Working independently of party leaders, he sometimes carried his views to the public by means of newspaper advertising. Last year, Mr. Goemann was signally honored by the National Grain Association when members gave a dinner in his honor in Minneapolis which was attended by grain men from all over the nation. He was honored as the oldest living president. In his private life he had many close friends. He was associated with Grace Episcopal Church which he served as vestryman for a number of years. Fraternally he was a member of all Masonic bodies including the 32nd degree, and of Westbrook Country club. Mr. Goemann is survived by his wife, Edith, a daughter, Mrs. Clark Husted of Toledo , and two grandsons, Henry Goemann and Clark Husted, Jr. Episcopal funeral services will be read at Grace Church at 8:30a.m. Monday by the Rev. Glenn Lewis. The body will be taken to Cincinnati where Services will be held at 3:00 p.m. at Spring Grove it cemetery and interment will be made there.

Rinehart, of the firm, about the purchase of some commodity.  The grocery man turned his head a moment to look for something on a shelf behind the counter and hearing a slight noise looked around and discovered that Mr. Grauer had fallen to the floor.  He ran around the counter and raised the fallen man's head, but Mr. Grauer was unconscious and never uttered a word after he fell.  Dr. Mecklem was called and pronounced him dead.  It was stated that he had been suffering from diabetes, but it is suspected that he was also a victim of heart trouble and that the latter caused the sudden death.  It is stated by those who knew Mr. Grauer that he had been ill for several years, but his trouble was not thought sufficiently troublesome to lead one to think he was in danger of sudden death.  For some time Mr. Grauer had a meat market on the east side of Central Park in a room adjacent to the one in which he died.  He was born in Butler Twp. and formerly lived there for a number of years, after which he removed to Mansfield.  It was feared to break the sad news to Mrs. Grauer for the reason that she also is in poor health and, therefore, somebody telephoned her at first that her husband was very sick and would be taken to the Emergency hospital for a short time for treatment.  Beelman's ambulance was then called and the body removed to the undertaking rooms to be prepared for burial.  After the body was taken to the undertaking rooms, friends went to the house to break the sad news to Mrs. Grauer.  Deceased leaves a widow and four children.  The children are Miss Stella Grauer, Mrs. Jas. Reed and Wm. and Stanley Grauer.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  21 December 1906, Vol. 14, No. 47 reprinted from the Mansfield News]

Gray, A. Wiley -- Center Hall (Monroe Twp.).  We are called upon to announce the death of A. Wiley Gray, who passed peacefully away at five minutes after one o'clock on the morning of the 5th. inst., after an illness of twenty-eight days with typhoid fever.  His age was 19 years, 6 months and 11 days.  Funeral services were held at the house, conducted by the Rev. J.R. Sykes, after which the remains were taken to the Odd Fellows Cemetery at Lucas, and there deposited in the grave beside his mother, who was laid there but eleven weeks before.  The funeral was well attended by friends and neighbors, but the relatives were conspicuous by their absence.  Miss Mattie Gray, who is still suffering from the effects of the fever, is slowly recovering.  There are circumstances connected with this case that to most people would appear somewhat peculiar, needing as she did the utmost care and attention since Nov. 18th.  She has been greatly neglected by the women of the neighborhood, being compelled to submit to the care of men, who were strangers to her.  One thing that deserves special mention is the manner in which the teacher of Center Hall school arranged the scholars by the roadside as the funeral of Wiley passed, it being a beautiful tribute of respect to an honored schoolmate.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner: 15 February 1890, Vol. LXXII, No. 39]

Greely, Frank -- Last Saturday evening the citizens of this place were startled by the sad news of the death of Frank Greely.  He had been at work cutting wood till about two o'clock in the afternoon and was apparently as well as usual.  He ate a hearty supper at about half past five after which he was playing with his little nephew.  At about half past six he laid down on a lounge saying that he was tired.  His sister, who was in the room soon heard him make an unusual noise and went to his side, and seeing that something was wrong with him went immediately after Dr. McMahon who arrived just in time to see him breathe his last.  Drs. Austin, Sampsell, Lydy and Kelly were summoned and every means used to revive him but without avail.  On Sunday afternoon a postmortem examination was held by doctors McMahon, Austin, Sampsell, Lydy, Kelly and Lewis with the following result.  Atrophy and dilation of the right ventricle of the heart, congestion and dilation of the stomach to three times its normal capacity.  Death resulted from excessive pressure of the enormously distended stomach on the thoracic organs causing a failure of action of the weakened heart.  The deceased was born in Rockland, Maine and die at the age of 38 years.  He was the son of B.F. Greely and his death leaves but two children out of a family of nine.  He was a member of the M.E. church for a number of years and at home he was affectionate and kind, both as a son and brother.  The funeral took place from the Presbyterian church on Monday afternoon conducted by Rev. J.F. Sponseller.  --  [Bellville Star:  03 February 1887, Vol. 10, No. 19]

Green, Eliza J.D. -- Died, at her residence, in Crawford Co. (OH), Sept. 3d., 1876, Eliza J.D. Green, wife of Walter Green, aged 57 years, 8 months and 8 days.  Mrs. Green was born in Richland County, O., December 25th., 1818, and was married to the husband she has left behind, November 1st., 1837.  She united with the M.E. Church in the winter of '54 under the ministrations of Rev. S. Seymour.  Some time afterward she transferred her membership to the Lutheran Church in Plymouth, and a few years ago, removing to her late home, too far from Plymouth to attend services there, she united with the Lutheran Church at Oakland, of which she was a member until her death.  Living for some years in our midst she is remembered by her friends and neighbors as  a devoted Christian woman.  Coming into service in middle life, she seemed to be trying to atone for early neglect by assiduous service during the time that remained.  Much of the after part of her life was one of pain and sickness, so that her attendance upon the services of God's house was very infrequent.  During her last illness which had continued for several years, though it was apparent life must soon close for her, and the pain of parting was long before her;  she yet enjoyed the consolations of religion, and was able to bear with patience the blow of the hand of God.  Confidence in the love of God as her Father sustained her heart.  Owing to the absence of her pastor, the services were conducted by Rev. Stough of Plymouth, after which her remains were carried to the graveyard followed by a large concourse of friends.  [Shelby Independent News:  14 September 1876, Vol. 8, No. 47 as reprinted from the Plymouth Advertiser]

Green, Lizzie -- One by one our old friends are passing away.  Saturday night at 11 o'clock the announcement by telegraph was made that Mrs. Lizzie Green, of Painesville, had died at 7:30 p.m., after a short illness, the character of which is not made known.  This brings to recollection one of the brightest, most distinguished amiable, lovely and beloved young women of Mansfield, when it was a village, more than half a century ago.  She, with her father and mother, came here from Pittsburg, Pa., in the summer of 1845, and they made this their home, when they were joined shortly after by her brother, Joseph Richard, deceased, lately of this city.  She at once took position in society and was its queen, acknowledged so by all.  She loved Mansfield and her associates, but loved another more and was married after a few years to H.P. Green, an estimable gentleman, since and lately deceased.  From here she, with her husband, went to Baltimore, Md., where they remained but a short time, and returned to her first love, now a city, and here they remained a few years, her husband and father engaging in the drug business in what is known as the Colby & Geddes block on Main Street.  From here they removed to Newark, thence back to Mansfield, and from here to Painesville, where her husband was elected county recorder and died while in office.  They reared a large and loving family of five girls and five boys, all of whom survive her, excepting three.  One of her daughters, Mrs. Mary McAbee, whose husband died in California, lived with her in her late home and is well known in this city, having lately visited here.  Many tears of sorrow will be mingled with those of her bereaved family in this their great bereavement.  Her funeral will take place from her home in Painesville, O., on Tuesday, April 26, at 3 p.m.  --  [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield):  26 April 1898, Vol. 14, No. 33]

Grimes, Mary Wellington -- Mary Wellington Grimes was born in West Cambridge, Mass., June 8, 1819.  She came to Mansfield in 1841 and, during the two succeeding years, devoted a portion of her time, as instructor, to school interests.  On September 21, 1843, she was united in marriage to Andrew L. Grimes, whom she survived thirteen years.  During May of the following year (1844) she became a member of the First Congregational Church, with which her husband was already officially connected.  At 11 o'clock Friday evening, Jan. 19, after a period of suffering, she passed quietly, peacefully to the Home beyond.  Of the three sons and three daughters born to this home, four remain -- two sons, Charles and Frederick, and two daughters, Mary and Helen.  Four grand-sons and two grand-daughters bear the family name.  The many who have had opportunity to know Mrs. Grimes in all the bearings of her life can well understand how meaningless and unnecessary are words to make the character of such a woman known and appreciated in this community.  In domestic relations there was forcibly exemplified and solidarity of wedded life;  two standing truly as one, in all matters pertaining to the best interests of home society and the church.  In obligations where her own peculiar individuality must become the exponent of spiritual and moral power, she stood unflinchingly for all that was good and true and noble.  The maturity and righteousness of her judgment made her always a safe counselor, and eminently fitted her for the position she so long filled in the church whose privileges were to her the expression of Christian life.  During the last days, when bodily suffering seemed all that could be borne the unfailing testimony of this consecrated mother was "Jesus is just what I need, and all I need".  We may well pause silently, thoughtfully, when such an influencer is no longer a part of us.  -- F.W.L.  Mansfield, O., Jan. 20, 1894.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  27 January 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 37]

Groff, Elias -- On Friday morning, May 19th., 1876, at his residence in Green township, Ashland County, Mr. Elias Groff, aged sixty years and fifteen days.  Mr. Groff was born in Frederick township, Montgomery township, Penn., May 4th., 1816.  His parentage was the good old "Pennsylvania Dutch" stock, the homely virtues and sterling characteristics of which he retained through life.  His father removed from Pennsylvania in the spring of 1828, when he was twelve years old, and settled on the banks of the Clearfork, three-fourths of a mile south of Perrysville, in what was then Richland, but now Ashland county;  here in full sight of his last resting place, he spent his youth, the prime of his more than usually strong manhood, and at its close passed into the Land of Shade and Rest.  Intimately associated with the early history of the county, having personal experience of many of the privations, hardships and trials incident to the period -- his enthusiastic, positive and earnest character identifying him closely with all the social, political and religious interests of his community.  Mr. Groff's life was one of more than ordinary interest.  He was endowed, to a marked degree, with those traits of character which win the confidence and esteem of men;  he was one of the finest types of the rugged, dauntless, honest men of his day, and as such, the bold outlines of his character, his positive and fearless self assertion, his firm political convictions, his thorough and hearty and withering scorn of all dishonesty and superficiality and sham, made him as a man conspicuous, and a power that was felt throughout his community for more than a quarter of a century.  In May of 1842, he joined the communion of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.  In February of 1843, he married Miss Eleanor Darling, a devoted and pious woman, who survives him.  In business he was a prosperous man, accumulating means which he bestowed with a liberal hand when charity, public benevolence or the dictates of his Christian profession dictated.  In his political convictions, which were democratic;  he was positive, direct and out-spoken;  in his church connections enthusiastic, self-sacrificing and consistent;  was superintendent for many years of his church Sabbath school, and served perhaps as often as any man in his part of the State, in Sabbath school conventions, church councils and Synods.  That he was the friend of educational enterprise, the resolutions appended to this article, passed by the students of Greentown Academy, an institution of which he has been a constant friend and liberal patron since it was founded.  But he has passed away.  Once though he well knew how to enjoy life, and fully appreciated the blessing, yet the grim messenger found him prepared and willing to depart.  Thus has passed away a man of independent thought, of keen judgment, of positive convictions and prompt and decided action;  a man, who as he understood them, discharged his duty with hearty zeal and unselfish devotion to society, his family, his church, his God.  Peace to his ashes.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  03 June 1876]

Guiter, Mrs. William -- Independence.  Last Sunday afternoon Mrs. Wm. Guiter left home, it is supposed, for the purpose of going to George Stahl's, carrying with her some rye and going across the fields.  Nothing was thought of her going nor was she asked where she was going by the family;  but as she did not return in the evening they wondered where she had went as it would be strange for her to remain away over night.  Finally they concluded she had gone over to see Mrs. Sowers who, at the time, was lying at the point of death;  consequently no particular search for her was made that night.  The next day, after sufficient time had elapsed for her to come home and she did not come, they became alarmed and Mr. Guiter went over to Sowers' to see about her.  After he had gone some little time John, a son, found her track in the snow and traced it in the direction of Stahl's, to what is known as an upper field, about 100 years from the house.  There he found his poor mother stone dead and frozen perfectly stiff.  The supposition is that she died of heart disease, of which she was troubled.  Her sudden and sad death casts a gloom over the entire neighborhood.  The remains were interred in the Independence Cemetery on Tuesday, the funeral being preached in the Evangelical church by Rev. Henry Keller.  --  [Bellville Star:  24 November 1887, Vol. 11, No. 9]

Gump, Benjamin -- Died, on Friday evening, October 20th., Benjamin Gump, aged 83 years, 7 months and 1 day.  Father Gump was born in Frederick County, Md.  He was baptized in infancy by Rev. Mr. Beck of the Moravian Church, and, in process of time was elected to church membership by the same denomination.  In 1813 he enlisted for the war against Great Britain and served in the 37th. regiment under Capt. Ogles and Col. Heath.  In 1818 he went to Bedford County, Pa., and was married the same year to Ester Smith.  In 1826 he moved to Jackson Tp., Richland Co., Ohio, where he resided until his death. He was buried on Sabbath afternoon in the London cemetery by Rev. D. Summers, from the words found in Job XVI:22.  Rev. N.H. Loose offered prayer and read the liturgical service at the grave.  The large number of persons attending the funeral is evidence of the high esteem in which he was held by the community in which he lived for half a century.  Mr. Gump was a plain, unostentatious Christian.  His life was characterized by uniform efforts, to make his "calling and election sure".  There was nothing spasmodic or periodical in his religion.  He had laid hold on Christ;  on the saving virtue of his all sufficient atonement, by the strong arm of faith, and the life he lived he lived by faith in the Son of God. The Bible was his celestial star to guide him in the ways of truth and holiness.  He practiced its saving precepts, and rejoiced in view of its precious promises.  From it he learned "to do justly, and to walk humbly with his God."  [Shelby Independent News:  26 October 1876, Vol. 9, No. 1]
