Hagerty, Jerry -- Jerry Hagerty died an awful death at 8:30 o'clock last night.  Late yesterday afternoon the people on the streets were startled by the report that Jerry Hagerty had been run over by the cars and horribly mangled.  Jerry's many friends were loth [sic.] to believe that the rumor was true.  but in a short time details of the horrible accident were known.  Jerry has been out of work some time, but next week he expected to accept a position under Superintendent Barrett, of the C.A. & C. railroad.  His father, Patrick Hagerty, the well known Erie section foreman, with a large gang of men began yesterday re-laying the track between West Salem and Mansfield.  Jerry started in yesterday morning to do the clerical work for his father for a few days.  It was his duty to keep the time of the workmen and also record the numbers of the cars unloaded.  Mr. Hagerty and other members of the family objected to Jerry's working for a few days and tried to coax him out of it.  It seems they had a short of presentiment that harm would befall him, but Jerry, always industrious, insisted on working.  The construction train was at work about four miles east of the city at 3:30 o'clock.  The train was standing on a sidetrack and Jerry was standing on and near the end of a flat car.  The engine started with a sudden jerk, which caught Jerry off his guard and threw him off the car.  He fell between the cars and seven cars passed him, three of which were loaded with steel rails.  Both legs were ground to pulp below the knees, the right arm was crushed, the back of the head was cut and bruised, the face was badly bruised and the chest crushed and internal injuries were also sustained.  The unfortunate young man was picked up and tenderly cared for and the construction train at once started back for this city.  Jerry was immediately taken to his home on North Main Street and Doctors J.H. Craig, John Maglott and Otis Wiles attended him.  The doctors at once decided that the only possible hope for life would necessitate the amputation of both legs and the right arm.  Jerry was conscious and conversed freely with all his friends.  He was placed under the influence of opiates while the operations were performed.  The operations were finished and the young man became unconscious but after several hours of terrible agony the poor fellow's constitution began to show the effects of the shock and at 8:30 o'clock Jerry Hagerty's spirit took its flight.  Jerry Hagerty was born in this city.  He would have been 23 years old tomorrow.  He was employed as clerk for several years with Miller & Dittenhoefer, and later was in the employ of I. Shonfield a year.  During the last session of the City Board of Equalization, he was elected to and performed the duties of messenger.  Jerry's friends were legion, as he was very popular with all, and many a heart is full of sorrow today as they think of good natured Jerry's sudden and awful death.  The young man leaves a father, mother, two sisters and two brothers, Deputy Auditor M.E. Hagerty and Timothy Hagerty.  The funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 8 o'clock at St. Peter's Catholic church.  Rev. Father Magenhann will officiate.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  20 October 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 23]

Hall, Elizabeth -- Comparatively few people of this city were aware yesterday of the horrible accident which occurred Sunday morning at the home of Dr. H.L. Hall, of North Mulberry Street, by which the Doctor's aged mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall, lost her life.  The accident which snuffed out a human life so suddenly was the old familiar one, that of the accidental catching fire of a woman's clothing.  The circumstances of the unfortunate occurrence, detailed to the SHIELD man by Dr. Hall, were as follows:  Shortly before church time the Doctor told his wife to go to church and that he would remain at home.  The only other inmate of the house at the time was his venerable mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Hall, who, although eighty-nine years of age, was yet in comparatively good health and sound in mind.  After the members of the family left for church the doctor remained talking to his mother a short time and at twenty-five minutes of 11 o'clock left her to attend to some duties in his office, which is a room on the north side of the same building, connected with the house by a door.  The doctor had not been in his office over five minutes when he heard cries proceeding from the other part of the house.  He rushed from his office through the sitting room and on opening the dining room door, a sight met his eyes which must have caused his blood to freeze in his veins.  Mrs. Hall was standing in the center of the room with her clothing on fire from the hips up.  The doctor sprang into an adjoining room and snatched up a quilt from a bed and threw it about the unfortunate woman, finally subduing the flames, but not before the cotton clothing, which she wore, had been almost entirely consumed and her head and body as low down as the hips burned in a fatal manner.  The hair was entirely burned off, while the flesh came off in spots.  In extinguishing the flames the doctor received terrible burns, not thinking of his own danger in his efforts to save his mother.  The hair was all singed off his head, while the top of the scalp was severely burned and his right hand also recevied severe burns, so that today he is a mass of cotton and bandages and will have to remain so for weeks, if nothing more dangerous results.  As soon as the flames were put out Dr. Hall ran for assistance to the home of M.D. Ward, who, together with his wife, responded and put out the flames which were scattered over the floors of three rooms in the house.  Milton Keiser, who happened to be passing in a buggy, assisted also in putting out the fire and thus prevented a conflagration.  Dr. J.W. Craig was sent for and dressed the injuries of mother and son.  A messenger was also sent to the United Presbyterian church to notify Mrs. Dr. Hall and Mr. and Mrs. J.E. Payne, who were attending regular service.  Mrs. Hall suffered the most intense agony and had to be put under the influence of opiates.  In her delirium she called constantly for her son.  The old lady was in the habit of standing in front of the kitchen stove and as the top door was found open it is surmised that her shawl accidentally communicated to her clothing.  Mrs. Hall lingered in great agony until a few minutes after 8 o'clock last night, when she expired, her death being caused by the shock and inhaling the flames.  She was 89 years of age and was the last of a family of 10 children, none of whom died under the age of 70 years.  She was a member of United Presbyterian church of this city and a constant reader of the Bible.  The funeral will take place from the residence of her son, No. 41 North Mulberry Street, Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. F.B. Foster officiating.   [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 December 1891]

Hamilton, Hannibal Van Buren -- Doubly Afflicted.  When death calls a loved one the burden of grief if heavy;  but when two are taken away from the family at nearly the same time it is doubly hard to bear.  Hannibal Van Buren Hamilton was born February 8, 1855, died at his home near Palmyra on March 5, 1897, aged 42 years and 28 days.  The deceased who had suffered with pneumonia for several weeks suddenly became worse, Friday, and in a short time his spirit passed through the fair portals of glory to the God who gave it.  He was highly esteemed by all who knew him as a true husband, a kind and loving father and a noble Christian man.  His sacred bond of marriage was blessed with five children, three of whom are living and with their broken-hearted mother and a host of friends are bowed in grief ___ this absent one.  Jacob Hamilton was born near this place in 1830 and died at his home in Mansfield where he has resided for the past six years, after a short sickness on March 6, 1897, in his 67th. year.  He was married in 1852 to Miss Elizabeth Holland and six children were born to them, five of whom survive and were in attendance at the funeral to witness the last sad rites of their loving father.  Both funerals took place from the Christian church of this place, that of the son at 11 a.m. Sunday, and of the father at 11 a.m. Monday.  Rev. Wilbur S. Morgan officiated at both services, interments in Beulah Cemetery.  The grief-stricken relatives cannot yet see why God has bereft them of those they needed so much, but surely He who is all wise knows best and the loved ones safe in the Father's mansion will be the guardian Angels of those left on earth.  [Bellville Messenger:  11 March 1897]

Hamilton, Mary E. -- DIED -- Near Lexington, Richland Co., Ohio, on Thursday, May 15th., 1873, MARY E. HAMILTON, aged about 17 years.  Miss Hamilton was the daughter of James Hamilton.  Her untimely death was caused by a large tumor growing in the region of the stomach.  It had been growing for some time but gave her apparently little trouble, and up to the day before her death she was able to go about the house and do little turns in her usual way.  She looked apparently healthy.  The tumor grew to a large size and it was found necessary to remove it.  Accordingly on Tuesday May 13th., Dr. Dunlap of Springfield, Ohio, removed it, and the weight was found to be about 24 lbs.  She lived from Tuesday noon to Thursday morning.  She was a young lady much respected and beloved by those who knew her.  She bore her suffering with great resignation and Christian fortitude.  At an examination of the scholars of the Lexington Sunday School, as to their knowledge of the shorter catechism, she was one of the two that could repeat all the answers.  Since the above was in type, we have received the following:  Thirteen months before her death, she was received into the communion of the church, on profession of her faith in Christ;  and from that time till she passed through the dark valley, we believe she lived a consistent Christian life.  Her course on earth was soon terminated;  and when leaving us, she had to endure peculiar trials;  but, though conquering grace, she left good testimony, that with her, all is well.  [BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY:  30 May 1873, Vol. 2, No. 13]

Hamilton, Sarah -- Died -- Near Lexington, O., May 24, 1889.  Mrs. Sarah Hamilton was born in Washington County, Penn., March 4, 1796, was married to H. Hamilton in the spring of 1819.  Two weeks after leaving the home of her childhood, she came with her husband to what was then the wilds of western Ohio, settling in the unbroken forest of Jackson Township, then Wayne County.  Mother Hamilton was a zealous Christian, ever faithful to the covenant promises, serving and honoring the Savior.  Being an early settler of a new country, she experienced many hardships at which most, if not all, would now shrink;  often riding on horse-back, carrying a child to Wooster, 15 miles distant, both to church and to market.  Mrs. Hamilton was the mother of seven daughters and three sons.  Three daughters and the sons survive her to mourn the absence of a dear mother, the husband and four daughters having preceded her by death.  The last 24 years of her life were spent near Lexington on a farm with her two youngest daughters.  In the early morning the long-waited-for and welcome voice was heard to say "I come".  Crowned with near five score years, her mind remained unclouded to the last.  Embalmed in hearts who mourn her death, she walked with God.  She now rests in the sleep of a beloved.  The loving shepherd stands with loving heart and outstretched arms to receive her into his sheltering fold, to be made a pillar in the temple of her God.  It was one of the oases in this life to meet as sons and daughters at the dear old home where we oft received a mother's blessing, but will meet no more until we meet in that home on high.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  15 June 1889, Vol. LXXII, No. 4]

Hammerle, Fred --  Fred Hammerle was struck and killed by a train on the Pennsylvania railroad near the water works reservoir Saturday evening.  The victim was found lying dead between the east and west bound tracks not far from the second band car house.  At first it was not known who the man was, but later the body was identified by Michael Masline and others as that of Fred Hammerle, a German, about 60 years of age, who has been employed on the Suter farm near Spring Mills.  Hammerle was undoubtedly on his way there when he met his death.  He has also worked from time to time in this city.  The body was first noticed by Charles Dell, fireman of T., W.V. & O., local freight 414, and Dell remarked to Engineer Allen:  "I believe that is a man lying over there between the tracks."  The flagman of the local went back and found the body, when he went to flag main line No. 20, which was following the local.  Local 414 Conductor Thomas Kanary, on arriving here at 6:30 o'clock reported that a dead man had been found.  Members of the P.E. yard crew and railroad employees accompanied by Depot Officer Madden and P.F. Officer Rapp, at once went on a shifter to the scene of the accident and brought the body back with them.  The back part of the victim's skull was crushed, but aside from a few bruises there were not other cuts.  Death must have been instantaneous.  The body was taken to the Pennsylvania baggage room and Coroner Baughman was sent for and viewed the body.  Officer Madden recognized the victim as being a man who had been working at Spring Mills and had resided in this city.  Persons who were known to have been acquainted with the man were notified to see if they could identify the body.  After the coroner had viewed the remains the body was removed to the undertaking establishment of H.H. Beelman, on North Main Street.  Here friends of the unfortunate man identified the body.  On his person were found 30 cents and a flask partially filled with liquor and he also had an umbrella with him.  He has several daughters and a son.  A married daughter, Mrs. Ferdinand Schettler, resides at 34 Prospect Alley and another daughter, Edith Hammerle, also resides there.  It is stated that the son, Fritz, resides in California.  H.H. Beelman went to the home of Mrs. Schettler Saturday evening to inform her of her father's death.  Coroner Baughman will conduct the inquest today at 9 o'clock and will likely finish it Monday.  [picture available]  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  27 September 1898, Vol. 14, No. 80]

Hand, Alfred Chapman -- Rev. Alfred Chapman Hand died at the residence of his mother-in-law, Mrs. Mary D. Avery, on Park Avenue West, about noon yesterday.  Rev. Hand's death was very unexpected and it is a severe shock to his family, relatives and many friends.  For several years he has been suffering from Bright's disease, but for some months he has felt much better and was greatly improved in health.  Several days ago he contracted la grippe and remained in his bed as a precaution against a relapse.  Saturday night he complained of a pain in his lungs and a physician was called who pronounced the ailment neuralgia.  The physician remained with the patient until 4 o'clock yesterday morning, when Rev. Hand said he felt much better.  At 5 o'clock, however, the patient became worse and suddenly passed into unconsciousness, remaining so until his death some hours later.  The physician who attended him attributes his death to a congestion of the lungs.  The funeral will be held at 3 o'clock, Wednesday afternoon, at the residence, Revs. Hubbell and Meese, assisted by others of the local clergy, officiating.  Interment private.  Rev. Hand was born in Honesdane, Pa., in June 1859.  He graduated at Yale and afterwards took a thorough theological course in Union College, New York City.  He was ordained a minister of the Presbyterian church in the spring of 1889 and received a call to a Buffalo, N.Y. church, which he accepted.  In June, 1889, before entering upon his ministerial duties, he was married in this city to Miss Sarah Avery, daughter of Mrs. Mary D. Avery.  In November, 1889, Rev. Hand was compelled to resign his pastorate on account of ill-health and accompanied by his wife, he spent two years abroad in the hope of being benefited physically, but without success.  Last fall he and Mrs. Hand returned to this city, where he remained until his death.  Henry S. Hand, of New York City, a brother of the deceased, arrived in the city this afternoon.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  19 March 1892]

Hardman, Anthony -- Anthony Hardman was born in Bedford Co., Penn., Dec. 29, 1825 and died Friday, Nov. 27, 1903, at 10:30 p.m., aged 77 years, 10 months and 27 days, after an illness of about two weeks duration.  In early life he moved from Pennsylvania to West Virginia and afterwards to Ohio and finally about the year 1875 to Holt Co., Mo., where he resided until the day of his death.  He was united in marriage to Miss Mary E. Silger, Feb. 16, 1845.  To this union nine children were born, four sons and five daughters, all of whom survive him except n daughter who died in childhood.  Mother Hardman departed this life Feb. 27, 1901, leaving the partner of her joys and sorrows to continue the journey of life without the comfort of her presence and help in the battles of life.  At the age of eighteen years, Father Hartman, as all loved to call him, united with the Methodist church and for a number of years was a class leader among them, but afterwards united with the Christian church, of which body he remained a faithful, zealous and useful member during life.  during his early life Father Hardman was a teacher of vocal music and his experience in this work materially aided him, as he often said, in the work of the ministry which he took up about the year 1870.  His labors in the Master's vineyard were fruitful and many souls owe their start on the way to the Better Land to his effort to tell the world of the Savior's love.  His faith in the promises of the Master, and his love for the souls of men kept his spirit sweet and gentle and hopeful during all the trials of life.  His presence was as a benediction and to know him was to love him.  In losing him the church militant has lost a faithful and valiant soldier;  in gaining him the church triumphant has gained a soul attuned to sing the praises of its Master.  Funeral services were conducted in the Christian church at New Point, Sunday morning, Nov. 11, at 11 o'clock by the pastor and were attended by the entire community which assembled to mourn his loss and to look for the last time upon the form so much beloved in life, after which the body was laid to rest by the side of that of the faithful wife in the Fairview Cemetery, there to await the call of the Resurrection Morn.  Four sons, four daughters, twenty-one grandchildren, twenty great-grandchildren, and a host of friends to mourn his loss.  An affectionate and tender father, a trusty and helpful friend, a public-spirited citizen, an earnest and loving fellow-Christian, a noble, pure-hearted and clean lived man, his death brings sorrow to all.  [Butler Enterprise:  25 December 1903]

Harrer, Caroline -- Crestline has been stirred up over a sensational case in which a young woman came to her death as the result of a criminal operation to produce premature labor, that being the verdict of Coroner Baughman, who investigated the case.  The coroner has reported his finding to Prosecuting Attorney W.H. Bowers.  The young woman whose name is Caroline Harrer, aged 18 years, died Sunday morning at her home at Crestline on the Richland County side of the line.  The death was first reported to have been due to convulsions and acute pleuro pneumonia.  Suspicion was created that there was something back of this and the result was that Monday evening Coroner Baughman received a message from the mayor of Crestline asking him to come and investigate the cause of the young woman's death.  The coroner accompanied by Constable Winters, went to Crestline, where a post mortem examination conducted by Drs. Clutter and W.P. Bennett was held at the home of William Harrer, the young woman's father.  The lungs were found in a healthy condition and at the conclusion of the examination the coroner gave as his verdict that the woman died as the direct result of a criminal operation to produce premature birth, but was unable to place the responsibility.  An eight-month-old fetus was found buried in the rear of the lot, and testimony was given at the inquest that it had been buried there by direction of a physician.  Coroner Baughman stated that he was informed that a young man named Charles Thrailkill had been keeping company with Miss Harrer a number of months before and that the physician who attended Miss Harrer was Dr. Moses.  The coroner further stated that he would not order any arrests in the case, but had reported the case to the prosecuting attorney that it may be investigated by the grand jury if the prosecuting attorney so decides.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  16 December 1898, Vol. 14, No. 103]

Harter, ----

Harter, Amanda (Frederick)  -- BELLVILLE -- A sad event was the funeral of Mrs. Amanda Harter, wife of W.M. Harter, of Rudolph, O., conducted here in the M.E. church on May 22nd., 1894, by her pastor, the Rev. W.S. Morrison, of Bucyrus, O. Four members of her church from the Christian Endeavor Society came along as pall-bearers. The gentlemen were Porterfield Mercer, Delascus Mercer, Charles Sterrell and Isaac Carack.

Society of Bellville and the K. of P. lode of which Mr. is a member gave beautiful tokens of affection and sympathy in the shape of flowers.

Mrs. Harter was raised in this community, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C.P. Frederick. She was laid to rest in the cemetery at Four Corner's church, where lies her two children. -- [BELLVILLE INDEPENDENT: 31 May 1894, Vol. 7, No. 3]

Harter, Don -- On Wednesday of last week the news of a sad, and sudden death, spread rapidly over our community.  Don, the second son of our liveryman, Mr. Elmer Harter, while in the barn assisting his brother, Earl, in hitching up a horse, dropped over suddenly of heart trouble.  A physician was hastily summoned, but could do nothing for the stricken lad.  Though it was generally known that Don was suffering from this trouble, yet is death came as a shock to his many friends and acquaintances.  He was born at Bellville, O., Jan. 30, 1890.  On Nov. 23, 1902, he became a member of St. Paul's Lutheran church of this place, and remained a member unto the day of his death, July 11, 1906, aged 16 years, 5 months and 11 days.  Don was one of the well known young men of our community, and a favorite among his companions.  Every body had a kind word for him, and the respect and esteem in which he was held, were shown by the many beautiful floral offerings.  The funeral was a sad and large one.  His Sunday school class acted as pallbearers, and the High school class, of which he was a member, attended in a body.  He leaves a father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Harter;  a sister, Miss Florence;  and two brothers, Earl and Dale, to mourn his departure.  The many friends and acquaintances extend sincere sympathy to the family in their bereavement.  Funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. H.B. Burkholder, in the Lutheran church, on Friday, July 13, at 2 p.m.  Interment was made in the Bellville Cemetery.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  20 July 1906, Vol. 14, No. 25]

Harter, George D. -- The sad intelligence reached this city late Saturday night of the death of Mr. George D. Harter, brother of Hon. M.D. Harter, at his home in Canton, O.  The news although not unexpected, is a great shock to the business interests and citizens in general of both Canton and Mansfield, in which places the deceased was largely interested in business, commercial and manufacturing.  Mr. Harter was president of the banking firm of Geo. D. Harter & Bro. at his home, and was president of the Aultman-Taylor Co. of this city, and also a stockholder in the C. Aultman & Co. at Canton.  In the latter company Mr. Harter assumed the great business responsibility carried on so successfully by the late C. Aultman, whose only daughter is the wife of Mr. Harter.  The deceased would have been 47 years old on next Christmas Day.  The wife and three children survive.  The A.-T. shops of this city closed this morning in his honor and will remain closed until Wednesday morning.  The funeral will take place from his late residence in Canton, Tuesday afternoon.  A number of relatives and employees will attend the funeral from this city.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  13 December 1890, Vol. LXXIII, No. 30]

Harter, Lottie

Harter, M.D. -- In deference to the wishes and demands of the many friends of Mr. Harter in this city, arrangements have been made for public services which will be held tomorrow at St. Luke's Lutheran Church. Private services will be held at the beautiful Harter residence on Park Avenue West at 11 a.m. The body will be taken to St. Luke's Church, corner of Marion Avenue and Park Avenue West, at 12 o'clock and will lie there in state until 1:45 p.m. Those who desire to see Mr. Harter will have the opportunity at the church and at 1:45 p.m. the casket will be closed. The private services at the residence will be conducted by the Rev. George H. Reen, pastor of St. Luke's Lutheran Church, of which Mr. Harter was a member. The services at the church will begin at 2 p.m. and will be conducted by Rev. Reen, assisted by the Rev. Dr. W.W. Criley of Wooster. At the close of the services at the church, the body will be taken to the Mansfield Cemetery for interment. The pall bearers from the house to the church will be: George Knofflock, George Weidner, James Livingston, John Hunt, Charles Miller, Willis A. Harbeson and Byron Hershey, employees of the Aultman-Taylor Machinery Co. The pall bearers from the church to the cemetery will be: C.B. Jameson, H.M. Weaver, Charles F. Ackerman, John C. Burns, George Brinkerhoff, John F. Stine, Arnold Kallmerten and James Reynolds, business men with whom he had been associated. There is no doubt that the funeral of Mr. Harter tomorrow afternoon will be one of the largest attended that was ever held in Mansfield. Not all of his friends will be there for it would be impossible, but many a man whom he had helped by his counsel and advice, yes, even by money, will stand over his bier and think of his kindness; and as he does so a silent prayer will go up from him, even to be the most skeptical, that Mr. Harter may forever enjoy the reward which he so richly earned. Telegrams of inquiry concerning the funeral are hourly received from out-of-town people and the citizens of the city, one and all, will make preparations to attend the public services at 2 p.m. ** The rest of the page is devoted to further discussion of Mr. Harter's funeral.

Harter, M.D. -- FOSTORIA, Feb. 22 -- Hon. M.D. Harter selected Fostoria as the place in which to end his days for he took his life last night at the house he and Mrs. Harter had furnished for their son Robert, and which has been in charge of Mr. & Mrs. S.M. Knapp, who came here recently from Massillon. Mr. Harter came here Wednesday to look after his business interests in this city. He was apparently in good health and attended a supper given at the Presbyterian Church last night. He appeared to be in the best of spirits. When he retired last night he requested Mrs. Knapp not to call him this morning for breakfast if he did not arise. Mrs. Knapp followed his directions, but when he did not get up in time for dinner she became uneasy about him. It was a shocking sight that greeted the eyes of those who went to Mr. Harter's room. Mr. Harter was lying in bed attired in his night robes, with a 32 caliber revolver clutched in his right hand. A hasty investigation revealed the awful truth. There was a bullet wound in his right temple, the bullet having passed through his head; the blood that had oozed from the wound has dried and his lifeless body was already cold. Neither Mr. & Mrs. Knapp heard a revolver shot during the night but from all indications Mr. Harter had undoubtedly been dead several hours and the tragedy was undoubtedly the gruesome deed of an early hour, presumably soon after midnight. A letter was left upon the dresser addressed to Mrs. Harter but it has not been opened and will not be until Mrs. Harter arrives. ** The rest of the page is devoted to further discussion of Mr. Harter's passing.

H.L. Wiles officiating.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 August 1889, Vol. LXXII, No. 13]  The account of this accident also appeared in the Friday column of the same paper, as follows:  Geo. Hartman, the 10-year-olld son of Bill Hartman, who is an inmate of the Children's Home, was seriously injured on the grounds of that institution this morning.  He was holding a horse and had fastened the strap to his wrist when the animal became frightened and ran around the grounds, dragging the boy with him.  The boy was seriously injured and is at present lying in an unconscious state in the hospital of the Home.  Dr. Francis has been to see the injured boy twice since the time of the accident, 10:30 a.m.  

Hartman, George -- About half-past ten Friday morning a terrible accident occurred at the children's home.  George Hartman, aged about 10 years, son of Ex-Policeman Wm. Hartman, was given a horse, just taken from a coal wagon, to hold while it ate grass on the lawn.  The boy soon got tired and fastened the halter strap around his left hand and lay down on the grass.  The horse started to run and dragged the boy along by the arm.  Being unable to extricate himself the boy was jerked as high as four feet off of the ground for over a distance of six or eight hundred feet.  The horse kicked but it is thought did not strike the boy.  At last the strap broke and the boy was released.  Dr. Francis was summoned by telephone while the boy was being taken into the house.  The doctor arrived within 15 minutes after the accident and found the boy unconscious.  There are probably no broken bones, but the boy is badly injured internally.  His shoulder is bruised into a jelly and there is also concussion of the brain.  The boy's breathing is very labored and the gurgling noise of the air making bubbles in the blood in his lungs is very apparent.  The chances of the boy's recovery are very small.  Mrs. Hartman was summoned shortly after the accident and was at her child's bedside all afternoon.  The father was sent for, he being at work two miles east of Shelby.  At 6:00 the boy died, after being unconscious for seven and a half hours.  No blame attaches to any one for the accident, as the horse was very quiet one and the boy was very large for his age.  [Mansfield Herald:  15 August 1889, Vol. 39, No. 39]

Hatfield, Mary Roop -- Mrs. Mary Hatfield died Thursday, September 11th., 1884, at 9½ o'clock a.m. in the 88th. year of her age. The funeral took place from the residence of George Waring, No. 15 East Market Street, at 4 o'clock p.m., Friday, September 12th. Mrs. Hatfield was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, in February, 1797. Her father was a physician and a man of some renown in Germany, and was highly esteemed as a useful citizen after coming to this country. Mrs. Hatfield came when a child from Hagerstown to Canton in this State, and removed to Mansfield sixty-four years ago. Having married Mr. Roop, she reared two children, both of whom now survive her. Her daughter, Mrs. Waring, in whose home she had most faithful care, and Mr. Roop, who is still a citizen of this place. Some years after Mr. Roop's death which was in 1831, she was married to Mr. Hatfield in Canton, but again settled in Mansfield. Mrs. Hatfield was a woman of unusual health knowing much of sorrow and care and toil, but greatly sustained by strength of body through it all. One remarkable peculiarity about her was that she never lost her eyesight. Mrs. Hatfield attained a rare age. She was born three years before Washington died; was budding into maturity during the war of 1812, and was a woman grown when the battle of Waterloo was fought. She had attained almost to the average limit of human life before railways were used, and lived as long before steam navigation as she did after, and to a still greater age before telegraphs were used. Her religious life and character from her youth to her death was one of uninterrupted fervency. Her parents were members of the Lutheran Church and people of devout character. She brought a letter from Canton and united with the Congregational Church of this place not long after its organization, and was the oldest person connected with the church. She is remembered by many, who have long walked in the church with her, as being peculiarly faithful to its duties. She was always in her place at church services and during church prayer meetings, until the few last years when infirmities had come upon her. After she had forgotten other things she retained her memory of the church and its worship, and to the very last she sung the old familiar songs. During the present pastorate she has been constantly referred to as one of the faithful mothers in the church. She was unostentatious and uncomplaining even when called to bear many ills and many losses. She was unwearying in doing for others and her unselfish spirit will long be treasured by those who knew her. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 18 September 1884, Vol. 34, No. 44]

Hawk, William -- William Hawk, an old and highly respected citizen of this township, died on Sunday evening last.  He has been one of the most active, energetic business farmers in this section of the county for many years, and accumulated a fine fortune by industry, economy and good management, owning over five hundred acres of choice farming land, well improved, within a few miles of Shelby, at the time of his death.  During all his dealings, amounting to thousands of dollars, we have never once heard his honor or integrity impeached;  and as a prominent member of the Reformed Church, he has for many years well sustained his Christian profession.  Intimately connected in business with him, we feel the loss of a friend, and seriously regret, that not fearing his departure so soon, we deferred a friendly visit to one so highly esteemed until it was too late.  His disease was a singular one.  A swelling commenced some months ago on his neck, which unlike a tumor, extended over his whole body, resulting in death, much sooner than was expected by many.  He leaves a widow, and a number of children, all, who arrived at years of maturity, and able to care for themselves;  thus, though he might have been a useful member of society for years to come, he came to his grave, like a shock of corn in its season, well matured for the harvest.  [Shelby Independent News: 20 November 1873, Vol. 6, No. 4]

Hawk, William -- William Hawk was born in Lebanon County, Pa., January 7th., 1813, died near Shelby, Ohio, November 16th., 1873, aged 60 years, 10 months and 9 days.  Mr. Hawk was for many years a resident of Franklin County, Pa.  From thence he came to Richland County, Ohio, in the year 1851, having resided at his late home during a period of 21 years.  By diligence and integrity he gathered as his own, many broad acres of earth, being at the time of his death one of the wealthiest farmers in our county.  In the business circles with which he was connected, and among his neighbors, many have remarked, he will be greatly missed.  So also in his large family, and with the widow, for less than a year his companion.  He was twice married, his first wife having preceded him to the future life about seven years.  In early life he was confirmed a member of the Reformed Church.  He stood connected with the Church at Shelby since its organization, having contributed to the erection of the building, and as liberally as any to repeated repairs and furnishing of later years.  His attendance upon public worship was regular, especially so the more recent years of his life.  Until about six months ago his health and general vigor promised a long continuation of life.  This hope was however delusive, as he was strangely afflicted with dry cancer, an unusually malady, which was soon declared incurable.  Seeing that his earthly life must soon close, he deliberately settled, so far as possible, his large estate, arranging for its distribution among his children.  As a business man, he loved the world, but declared in the early part of his affliction, "farewell vain world".  On the last Saturday evening of his life, he said to his Pastor, "all I have of this world does me no good now."  And with the last grasp of our hand in a long farewell said, "pray for me" and added "the prayer of the righteous availeth much".  On Sabbath afternoon the long desired relief from suffering came, as the once busy life closed his earthly toil.  Funeral services were held in the Reformed Church on the 18th. inst., and after service his mortal remains consigned to rest in Oakland Cemetery.  His funeral was very numerously attended, by his neighbors, members of the church, and an unusually large number of business men with whom he was long in honorable intercourse.  -- N.H.L.  [Shelby Independent News: 27 November 1873, Vol. 6, No. 5]

Hawn, Eva Cecelia -- Died, Eva Cecelia Hawn, daughter of Daniel and Mary Hawn, was born at Crestline, Ohio, February 19th., 1855, and died at her home on Monday morning, September 10th., 1877, at 1:30 a.m., aged 22 years, 6 months and 22 days.  The deceased left her home a few weeks ago full of hope and joy to visit friends and relatives in the west.  Sickness soon laid her youthful form low on the couch of suffering to be brought home to die, surrounded by fond parents, dear sisters, and many sympathizing companions and friends.  During her severe illness, she longed to get home and cherished fond hopes of the future;  but the All-wise Providence of God, who doeth all things well, cut short her aspirations of life, and called her away to the home of the blessed, In Mansions of Rest.  She united with the Reformed church in baptism and confirmation on March 28th., 1869, under the ministry of Rev. H.N. Loose.  Since then she has become regular and steadfast in her Christian duties.  Her class in the Sunday school will miss her, but most of all, in her relations to the Church, will she be missed from her place in the choir.  It is hard to realize that her voice is forever hushed on earth, and that she can no more assist the church in the service of song.  Her place will also be vacant in the Lodge of the Sons of Temperance, to the interests of which she earnestly gave a due portion of her time and influence.   [Ohio Liberal:  19 September 1877]

Hayes, James -- One of the most sudden deaths that we have heard of occurred in this place, on Friday last, the particulars, as near as we can learn are as follows:  A young man by the name of James Hayes, a moulder by trade, and in the employ of Messrs. Haight, Leppo & Co., was sitting in the bar room of the Exchange Hotel, early in the evening, telling a story, he had just spoken of Boston, and as this word dropped from his lips he gasped, and died in his chair without a struggle.  Drs. Mack and Myers were called in, but it was too late, the spirit had left its earthly tenement, and, it is hoped, taken its flight to a better world.  The deceased was apparently enjoying good health, he ate a hearty supper at six o'clock, and in less than an hour was a corpse, he had not been heard to complain of feeling unwell, and seemed to be in his usual health.  Mr. Hayes was about 29 years old, a native of England, and of Irish parentage, he had only been a resident of Shelby, since the latter part of October, his home was in Washington City, where, it is believed, he has a mother and sister living, he was a soldier in the artillery service for four years, and participated in 33 battles.  A post mortem was held which showed the cause of his death to be congestion of the lungs.  It may be some consolation to his friends, to know that, though a stranger in a strange land, everything was done that could be done for him.  He was buried with military honors by Post 64, G.A.R.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. H.G. DuBois, pastor of the M.E. church of this place.  Washington papers please notice.  [Shelby Chronicle:  23 January 1868, Vol. 1, No. 47]

Hayes, John -- SUDDEN DEATH OF PLYMOUTH MAN LEADS TO INVESTIGATION BY CORONER -- Coroner Bushnell was notified Thursday evening of a fatality at Plymouth and is there today to investigate it.  The following special from Plymouth tell of the particulars of the case:  Thursday evening about 7:30, John Hayes, a well known man of this place, died while sitting in a chair in Charles Georgett's saloon.  The young man who oversees the pool and billiard tables in the saloon, called the attention of the proprietor to the fact that he believed something was the matter with Hayes and after awhile Georgett went to him and found him cold and lifeless.  Acting Coroner F.P. Smith, J.P., viewed the remains and ordered them conveyed to Hayes' home on High street, and Coroner Bushnell was notified.  Hayes was almost a dwarf in size, very slender and probably weighing less than 100 pounds.  He was a great sufferer from asthma and a great many think he had consumption also.  He was the mail carrier to and from the N.O. railroad, 45 years of age and single.  Two sisters and one brother are left to mourn his untimely taking off.  The funeral will be held Saturday afternoon, interment in Greenlawn cemetery, beside his parents.  Coroner Bushnell was called up by phone this afternoon at Plymouth.  There was some excitement at Plymouth over a report that Hayes' death was due to knockout drops and Coroner Bushnell, assisted by Drs. Garber and Holtz, of Plymouth, is holding an autopsy this afternoon to determine the cause of death.  If this should develop anything of a criminal nature arrests will probably follow.  Hayes was not very strong physically and it is thought by some, notwithstanding the rumor of knockout drops, that his death was due to heart trouble or some such cause.  It is understood that he had had a couple of drinks.  There would be no incentive for any one giving him knockout drops for he did not have any large sum of money at any time and if done at all would have been with the idea of a practical joke on him and not with any criminal intent.  However, the autopsy will determine whether any prosecution will be necessary.   The MANSFIELD NEWS dated 03 December 1901 had a follow-up to the above article, it reads:   Coroner Bushnell has rendered his verdict in the case of John Hayes, who died suddenly in a saloon at Plymouth and finds that death was due to diseased condition of the thoracic abdominal viscera.  [Mansfield News:  29 November 1901, Vol. 17, No. 230]

Hedges, James A. -- bur. 7/4/1878 at Mansfield Cem., inflammatory rheumatism;  44y  [Ohio Liberal:  07 August 1878]

Hedges, James A. -- Died, at Mansfield, Ohio, July 4th., 1878, James A. Hedges, aged forty-four years.  The death of James A. Hedges, which occurred on the 4th. inst., was received by our entire community with feeling of profound sorrow.  Some three weeks ago he was compelled to abandon a business trip and return home stricken with inflammatory rheumatism. his friends hoped that the usual medicinal appliances, careful attention and much needed rest would soon restore him to health.  All that the best medical skill could accomplish or suggest, or loving hands do, was done and all without avail.  The disease did not yield to treatment, but made gradual inroads upon his strong constitution, and after little more than three weeks intense suffering, borne with great fortitude, surrounded by his family and friends, and all that makes life dear or desirable, he passed peacefully into the better world beyond.   The subject of this sketch was more than an ordinary man, filled no common place in the material growth and prosperity of our city, and deserves more than a passing notice.  He was a son of Elzy and Harriet Hedges, and nephew and namesake of Gen. James Hedges and the late Andrew Newman -- the very earliest and most respected pioneers of our city and county.  Thus he came of honored ancestors and his life was not unworthy of them.  His early life was passed as clerk in the dry goods store of E. & C. Hedges (his father and brother), pioneer merchants in our county;  and while here he gave promise of and developed those fine business qualities that made him so eminently successful in after years.  As a business man he was remarkable for honesty and integrity, joined with mature judgment and an intense energy of character, which easily surmounted and overcame all ordinary obstacles.  Nearly twenty years ago, his keen judgment perceived that at no distant day our city would become a desirable distributing point for the various articles of merchandise, and to the accomplishment of this he gave his energy, his years and his life.  As his ancestors were pioneers in the then unbroken wilderness, so he became a pioneer in this then unexplored field of commerce, and all can now realize how keen was his foresight and how much he thus advanced the material interests of our city.  He gave nearly twenty years of active, energetic labor to the cultivation and advancement of the wholesale trade, which is to-day the pride and glory of our city.  such a life a generous public will always gratefully remember, and such a 'name they will not willingly let die.'  Although the most generous of men -- always responding liberally to the calls of the distressed and unfortunate -- by his energy and thrift he left a handsome competency to his family.  In the war of the Rebellion he served as First Lieutenant in the Second Regiment O.V.H.A. with credit to himself and honor to the country.  When peace was declared he returned home and again embarked in the wholesale grocery business, associated with Peter Remy and A.C. Cummins, and by his energy and business fact, as well as his former experience in trade, largely contributed to make this firm a success from the start.  A few years later the firm was changed to Remy, Hedges & Walter, who have since become among the most prosperous and successful grocers in Central Ohio.  He died young, but lived long enough to know that his judgment in selecting his native city as a proper distributing point for articles of merchandise was justified, and that honest fair dealing has its reward.  In politics he was a Republican, believing that the principles of that party if properly administered, are best calculated to promote the welfare of the entire people.  Last fall he was selected by his party as a candidate for the responsible position of County Treasurer, and although largely in the minority, and his opponent a true and tried man, the very flattering vote he received showed in what high esteem he was held by the community at large.  It can be truly said of him that in every department of life, whether as citizen, soldier, neighbor or friend, 'take him for all in all, he was a man.'  In the hour of his country's need a strong defender, in peace an honest and upright citizen.  He died young -- his sun setting at noon -- and yet he lived long enough to realize the wisdom of his judgment and reap the reward of his early efforts in building up the wholesale trade in our midst.  He done a vast amount of work, and what is better, he done it well, for "We live in deeds -- not years;  In feelings -- not in figures on a dial."  The large concourse that followed his remains to our beautiful cemetery or that inclement afternoon, testified more than words the deep impression his quiet and unostentatious life had left upon the hearts of our people, and amid the mournful minstrel of many voices from that fraternal order he loved so well in life, he was laid peacefully away to await the final resurrection of the just.  The sympathies of the entire community go out to the widow and fatherless and to the aged mother again called to mourn the loss of a cherished son.  Thus passed away a devoted husband, an affectionate father, and a good citizen.  He rests from his labors, 'may it be in peace'.  -- C.  [Ohio Liberal:  10 July 1878]

Hedrick, Alfred -- A Horrible Death.  Few people who read the notice of the death of Alfred Hedrick in yesterday's paper had any idea that there was anything of a sensational character connected with the demise.  Such is the fact, however, as the following horrible tale will tell:  For the past eight months Mr. Hedrick, who was 76 years of age, has been afflicted with kidney trouble, and knowing that at his time of life there was little chance of his recovery, he became very much depressed and it appears that he got the idea that it would be better for himself and family if he were dead.  Knowing that the old gentleman was of this opinion the members of his family watched his movements closely in order to prevent any attempts, he might make upon his life.  He was able a portion of the time to walk about, but never left his home during this period of his illness.  About 10 o'clock Tuesday night, Mr. Hedrick told his daughter, Miss Jennie, that he was going out back of the house.  A few moments afterward on going to the door she discovered her father lying on the ground, near the coal house, his head blazing with fire, while a common tin can sat on the ground near his prostrate body.  The daughter, almost overcome at the sight, soon recovered sufficiently to secure a shawl from the house and wrap it around his head.  The shawl, however, failed to extinguish the fire and she secured a bucket of water, but that also failed to put out the flames.  Miss Hedrick then secured the assistance of her brother, Thomas Hedrick, who resides on the same street, and together they succeeded in getting the father into the house and extinguishing the flames.  Before this could be accomplished the hair of the head had all disappeared, the eye balls were puffed and bleary and the skull was burned and blackened in a manner fearful to behold.  An investigation of the spot where the old gentleman was discovered revealed the fact that it was a case of premeditated suicide.  A common tin can containing coal oil was found near there and it is surmised that the old man had filled the can on the afternoon of the same day and, watching his opportunity, had poured the greater portion of the contents upon the top of his head and face, and then set fire to it with a match.  On being taken into the house physicians were sent for, but found that nothing could be done.  The unfortunate man was discovered at 10 o'clock and at 1 o'clock, Wednesday morning, he died, having lived just three hours after his desperate attempt to end his life.  Before he died Mr. Hedrick was conscious for a short time and on being asked why he did such a thing, replied that he had tired of life and said that he was sorry that he had resorted to such a horrible remedy.  The blaze was noticed in the back yard by neighbors, but at the time nothing was thought of it.  The family of the deceased was desirous of keeping the matter quiet, until after the funeral this afternoon, at least, and requested all acquainted with the facts to say nothing about it.  The information leaked out this morning, however, and the news of the horrible affair spread like wildfire.  The remains of the deceased were buried from his late residence at 2 o'clock this afternoon.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 September 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 16]

Heist, Rebecca. - Mrs. Rebecca Heist, widow of John Heist, died Wednesday evening at her home, rear 130 Blanche Street, after a short illness.  Death was due to the infirmities of age, she being in her ninety-sixth year.  Mrs. Heist was born in 1825 near Lewisburg, York County, Pa., and at the age of six years she removed with her father to Ohio.  The family settled on a farm in Washington township, and for about ninety years Mrs. Heist was a resident of Richland county.  She was united in marriage to John Heist, who died in 1898.  About seven years ago, owing to the infirmities of age, Mrs. Heist removed to Mansfield and has since made her home with her nephew, E.

Heistand, Daniel -- bur. 2/4/1878 at Mansfield Cem., old age;  88y  [Ohio Liberal:  13 March 1878]

Heistand, Daniel -- Died, Monday, February 4th., 1878 at the residence of his daughter, Mansfield, Ohio, Daniel Heistand, aged 88 years.  He was born in Washington County, Maryland, in 1790, was married in 1812 to Mary Koonts, and emigrated in 1827 to Mansfield, O., when he has resided ever since.  In 1828 he united with the M.E. Church of this place of which he was a consistent member till his death.  Such a life as this is worthy of more than a passing notice.  His birth occurred during the second year of the first Presidential term of Washington, so that his 88 years embrace almost the entire period of our country's history.  In the marvelous changes and growth of that time he has had his place and has done his work.  The companions of his active years were the stalwart men who braved the dangers and endured the toils of pioneer life, and founded our States, builded {sic} our cities and churches, and transmitted to us the heritage of civil and religious liberty.  Father Heistand survived nearly all the friends of his early years and labors.  His wife, the companion of 66 years, died about two years ago.  His religious life was of the best type.  He loved the church, and for the most part of the 50 years of his membership he was a local preacher, and held other places of trust in all of which he was active and useful.  His old age was happy and cheerful.  Bodily infirmities and the weight of years pressed upon him, but he was "Joyful in hope, patient in tribulation".  His last sickness was brief and he passed away as one falling asleep.  "He came to his grave in a full age like as a shock of corn cometh in in his season."  Children and many remain to mourn his loss.  His burial took place to-day at 10½ o'clock.  [Ohio Liberal:  06 February 1878]

Henderson, Dr. James P. -- Dr. James P. Henderson died Monday morning at his residence in Newville.  The end came through a gradual breaking up of a system worn out by many years of devotion to professional duties.  His death removes one of the most remarkable and prominent figures in the history of Richland County, Dr. Henderson having been associated very closely with the settlement of the same.  Dr. J.P. Henderson came from a long line of distinguished Scotchman, who were influential and intelligent and came to this country from Scotland before the Revolutionary War and took a prominent part therein.  The deceased was born near Elizabeth, Allegheny County, Pa., January 17, 1803, and is, therefore, 86 years old.  His classical and scientific education was received at Jefferson and Washington colleges.  He located in Newville, this county, in November of 1830.  It will be seen from this how important a part he must have taken in the early history of our county.  He received many honorable attentions from his profession in the state and was frequently elected to high positions in the medical societies.  In politics, Dr. Henderson was, prior to 1854, a Democrat, but since that time he was associated with the Republicans.  In 1841 and in 1842 he represented this county in the House of Representatives of the Ohio Legislature, and in 1850 he was a member of the constitutional convention which framed the present state constitution.  He leaves a wife and one son, John M. Henderson, of Cleveland, O.  --  [INDEPENDENT-STAR (Bellville):  06 July 1889, Vol. 2, No. 12 as re-printed from the SHIELD]

Henry, Joseph P. -- DEATH TAKES JOSEPH P. HENRY-WELL KNOWN ATTORNEY AND FORMER MAYOR PASSES FROM EARTH FRIDAY MORNING-AFTER YEAR OF DECLINING HEALTH-Ending an Honorable career of More Than a Quarter of a Century as a Member of the Richland County Bar-In His Profession and in His Home His Life Was Such as to Win the Admiration and Respect of His Associates and Friends. Brief Sketch of His Career. Joseph P. Henry, the well known attorney and former mayor of Mansfield, died Friday morning shortly after 6 o'clock at his home, 247 Marion avenue, after having been in a critical condition for the past week. Mr. Henry had been in gradually declining health for the past year, suffering from what is believed to have been cancer of the liver. A little over two weeks ago he was compelled to take to his bed and his condition grew worse until his death. Mr. Henry was born in Monroe township, this county, April 10, 1854, having been one of the seven children of the late Nicholas Henry, one of the pioneers of Richland county. Spending his boyhood on the farm, Mr. Henry at an early age developed a strong desire to secure an education and in this he was encouraged by his parents. At the age of about 16 years he was sent to the Greentown Academy at Perrysville, in which institution he remained for several years. Upon leaving this school he for several years taught country school in the winter and worked on the farm in the summer, assisting his father in many ways in the farm work. In 1876, he entered Lafayette college at Easton, Pa., and was graduated with honors in June, 1880. Following his graduation from that institution he took up the study of law in the office of Pritchard & Wolfe in this city and was admitted to the bar in 1882. Entering upon the practice of law in Mansfield he was first a member of the firm of Pritchard & Wolfe, later of the firm of Wolfe & Henry, then of the firm of Henry & Reed, and finally for some years he had practiced by himself. In 1886, Mr. Henry was united in marriage with Margaret A. Lutz, who survives him, together with two of the three children born to them, the surviving children being a daughter, Mrs. Alice Ringer of this city, and a son, Harvey, aged 16 years. In the spring of 1897, Mr. Henry was elected major of Mansfield and served in that office for two years. He was also a member of the city board of school examiners far a number of years and was prominent in lodge circles. He was a consistent member of the First Presbyterian church of this city and a faithful Sunday school teacher and worker. In his chosen profession Mr. Henry treated his associates with kindness and consideration and was honored and respected by all of them. While not an aggressive attorney he was a careful, thoughtful and strictly honest practitioner whose word was his bond. In scholarship he stood second to none in the Richland county bar and the greatest tribute that can be paid him in his profession is that none of this brethren, in the long years of his practice, can say aught against him. In his family Mr. Henry was kind and generous, his love for his children having been indeed remarkable, and the many sacrifices that he made during his lifetime on account of his parental love are such as only the Pleased Master can reward. Those who knew him best can verify the truth of this splendid quality of his nature. Among those to whom he expressed friendship he could at all times be relied upon as a true and devoted friend. He was at all times the plain, common, honest J. P. Henry, in whom there was indeed little guile, and "Peace be to his ashes" can truthfully be said to be the prayer of his friends. The funeral from the home Monday morning at 10 o'clock, conducted by the Rev. S. P. Long, of the First Lutheran church, on account of the absence from the city of Mr. Henry's pastor, the Rev. R. M. Huston, of the First Presbyterian church. Friends are invited to the services; burial private. Submitted by Jean and Faye.  [THE MANSFIELD NEWS: Friday, September 2, 1910; Page 3]

Henry, Rubie -- Bellville.  A sad accident occurred on last Wednesday at the home of Mr. Frank Henry, who lived about five miles west of town.  His little son Rubie, who was an only child, nearly five years old was kicked by a horse, at about 12 o'clock and died in three hours.  The grandfather of the child, Mr. John Henry, intended to do some plowing that afternoon, and while he was busy, the child left him and went into the lot where the horse was pasturing, and it is supposed attempted to drive the horse to the barn.  When Mr. Henry went to the lot he found the child senseless and almost lifeless.  It is not known just how the accident occurred, whether the horse struck with his forefoot or kicked.  The entire side of the head was crushed in, so that the brain oozed out where the scalp was cut.  Little Rubie was a beautiful and active child.  His sudden death brought almost heartrending sorrow to his parents and grandparents.  The family had the sympathy of their very many friends, which was shown by the very large attendance at the funeral.  The funeral services were held at the John Steel church at 11 o'clock.  The services were conducted by the Revs. Stocking and Philpott.  --  [Bellville Star:  16 June 1887, Vol. 10, No. 38]  The remains were taken to the Shafer cemetery for interment.  --  [Bellville Star:  16 June 1887, Vol. 10, No. 38]

Henry, Samuel Sr. -- In Memoriam.  Died, at his home near Lucas, O., of cancer of the stomach, Wednesday, April 13, 1892, 9 p.m., Mr. Samuel Henry, Sr., aged 71 years, 10 months and 21 days.  His remains were interred in the Odd Fellows Cemetery on Good Friday.  Mr. Henry was born May 23, 1820 near St. Clairsville, Belmont County, Ohio.  When a boy of fifteen years he came with his parents, who settled 320 acres of land one and one-half miles south of Lucas, near which place he has always lived.  He helped to raise the first log house in Lucas.  At the age of twenty-two years he married Rachel Marlow, who has long since preceded him to the better land.  This union was blest with five children, four of whom are still living, Mrs. Mary J. Hersh, Mrs. Isabel M. Bell, J.A. Henry and S.M. Henry.  He afterwards married Margaret J. Major;  one daughter, Sarah Elizabeth, now a teacher in the Mansfield schools, was given them and an infant daughter who passed with the mother to the brighter shore.  Again he was left with a family of little children.  The third time he married Marla C. Clancy, who survives him.  The fruit of this marriage was three sons, Dr. F.L. Henry, of Shiloh, J.L. Henry, attorney, of Mansfield, and U.S. Henry.  His wife and eight children were permitted to stand around his dying bed and note the moment when his spirit took its flight to God who gave it.  He was a member of the Congregational Church, never refused any one a favor if it was in his power to grant it.  He had a strong will and an iron constitution and, as has been said by many, had the most remarkable memory we ever knew.  He was a self-educated man, well informed on all subjects, especially the word of God.  He selected the text on which Rev. Barber, his pastor, based his remarks, Hebrews XI, 16 verse, "But now they desire a better country that is an heavenly;  wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he hath prepared a city."  He began to complain of his stomach last June, but did not take his bed till the first of November, since which time he has been confined to the house, most of the time to his bed.  He was remarkably patient during his entire illness.  He said although he had been spared to more than the allotted time, three score and ten, yet his work was not finished here, and if it was God's will he would like to live a little longer, but was ready to go at any time.  Then again he would beg to go home to Jesus and be at rest.  One evening after having suffered the greatest agony all day he said, "I am willing to suffer all this mortal body can bear for Jesus' sake;  he suffered for me."  He asked his children to prepare to meet him in heaven, told them "in youth is the time to serve the Lord."  And the last morning, when all thought he was almost gone, he threw up his hands, clasped them, saying, "Glory to God."  Beside his wife and eight children he leaves two brothers, two sisters and a large circle of friends to mourn his loss, but they mourn not as those having no hope;  they feel that he has been gathered home like the ripe wheat to an immortality of usefulness and joy and can only echo the words of Mrs. Opie the English poetess:  <<poetry omitted>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  23 April 1892, Vol. XXIV, No. 48] 

Henry, Sarah (Beckwith) Hoff -- Sarah Beckwith was born in Washington Twp., Richland County, Ohio, in the year of our Lord, 1839.  She died in the same county, two miles west of Bellville, Aug. 18, 1905, in the 66th. year of her earthly life.  At the age of 13 she was converted and united with the M.E. Church at Little Washington.  On Dec. 24, 1863, she was united in marriage with Abraham Hoff, and removing with her husband to the vicinity of the Salem Lutheran Church united with that congregation in 1864, of which Mr. Hoff was already a member.  She remained a member of this church to the time of her death, Mr. Hoff having died July 9, 1893.  She was again united in holy wedlock with Daniel Henry on the 23rd. of Nov., 1898.  For many years Mrs. Henry had been afflicted with lung trouble, which for the past three years was of a more acute form, and for the past ten months her death was looked for almost any day.  Mrs. Henry was a good pious Christian woman, beloved by her neighbors and friends wherever she was known.  She was a patient sufferer, and while her departure was not unexpected, she will be sadly missed.  In the absence of her pastor, Rev. O. MacWilliams, who is on his summer vacation, her funeral services were conducted at the Salem Lutheran Church on Sunday morning, August 20, 1905, by Rev. J.F. Hersheiser, of Bellville.  --  [Butler Enterprise:  25 August 1905, Vol. 17, No. 29]

He was twice elected Recorder of Knox County, and served six years to the satisfaction of all concerned. He leaves a wife and child -- a boy about four years old, who have the sympathy of the entire community. [BELLVILLE DOLLAR WEEKLY: 27 June 1873, Vol. 2, No. 17]

Sewell's meeting.  On his way home he complained of pain in the region of his stomach.  About 12 o'clock Dr. Stober was called.  His death was caused by a rupture of the stomach.  the contents of which escaped into the abdominal cavity.  Mr. Heyser was a prominent and most respected citizen  and his death is much deplored by his many friends.  He had a vigorous intellect and was ell informed on all the current events.  He served in the civil war, having been a member of the 64th. Regiment, O.V.I. and was distinguished for his valor.  He was a most able exponent of the creed of the Republican party.  [Semi-Weekly News:  06 November 1896, Vol. 12, No. 90]

Heyser, Elias -- Lexington.  The Rev. Mr. Mills, of Bellville, officiated Wednesday at the last sad rites of the venerable Elias Heyser, whose sudden death caused the most somber gloom to pervade Lexington.  The deceased was a member of Conger Post, G.A.R., and sons of veterans fired a salute over his grave.  Mr. Heyser was born in Pennsylvania, Feb. 27, 1827, and by a strange coincidence his funeral occurred in the 37th. anniversary of his marriage.  His wife, three sons and four daughters survive him.  He came here in 1884 with his family and then united with the Congregational Church.   As a soldier the memory of his name and deeds should be revered so long as the spirit of valor and patriotism are exalted.  He enlisted Oct. 21, 1861, for three years and was mustered in at Camp Buckingham, Dec. 31, 1861, as corporal in Company I, 64th. Regiment, O.V.I.  He was severely wounded in the left arm in the fierce carnival of death on Missionary Ridges' rugged height.  He heard the clash of saber and _brisk of shell at Shiloh, Chickamauga, Rocky Face Ridge, Stone River and seven other famous battles.  The officiating minister served in the army with him and he paid graceful tribute to his fine elements of brain and character and valor and patriotism.  His name was synonymous with truth, honor, justice and his death keenly anguished the hearts of his family and many friends.  [Semi-Weekly News:  10 November 1896, Vol. 12, No. 91]

Higgins, Anna -- An Aged Lady Passes Away.  Mrs. Anna Higgins passed away Saturday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock at the home of her son, Albert Higgins, four miles southwest of Plymouth, in Plymouth Township.  The cause of her death was pneumonia and old age.  Mrs. Higgins had not been in the best of health for the past year, and a few days before her death pneumonia developed, which hastened her death.  For the past year she had made her home with her son in Plymouth Township, and prior to that time she had resided with another son at New London, but after his death she came to Plymouth Township where she has since resided.  The funeral services were held Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock from the home of her son, Albert Higgins.  After short services at the house the body was taken on a special car to North Fairfield, where interment was made in the cemetery in that village.  Mrs. Higgins was born in England, May 22, 1820, having attained the age of 93 years, 11 months and 3 days at the time of her death.  She was probably the oldest woman in Richland County.  At the age of 19 years, she with her husband came to Ohio, and for many years the family resided in Huron County.  Her husband died several years ago.  She is survived by two sons, Bruce, of Akron and Albert, of Plymouth Township, and two daughters, Mrs. Sophia Sherben, of Lorain, and Mrs. Josephine Hopkins, of Idaho, besides a number of other relatives.  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  02 May 1914, Vol. 61, No. 24]

Higgins was born in England March 8, 1862, and was 64 years old. He established in the jewelry business here in 1886 and had been in business continuously forty years. He came from England with his parents at the age of 7 and came to Shelby from Everett, Pa. His first location was in the Opera House block where he remained for ten years. In 1896 he formed a partnership with John Sutter and built the Sutter-Higgins block, the east room of which he has since occupied. By his courteous treatment and his strict attention to business he built up an extensive trade and conducted and managed it until a short time ago. During his forty years of activity as a business man here Mr. Higgins never made an enemy. He had a pleasant way of dealing with the public and was respected and enjoyed the confidence of a host of friends. Fraternally, he was a member of the Knights of Pythias, and in his younger years was an enthusiastic member. He is survived by his wife and a son, Frank Higgins, of Seattle, Wash.

Higgins, for about 30 years prominently connected with the county offices of Richland Co. in various capacities, and a man who has served longer as a public officer than any other resident of the county, died at his residence on East Second Street, yesterday, at 11 o'clock A.M., aged 58 years.  [Richland Star:  24 October 1878, Vol. 2, No. 4]

Higgins, William S. -- Died at his home in Mansfield, Ohio, on the 20th. day of October, 1878, William S. Higgins, Deputy Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of Richland County, Ohio.  He left his post of duty in the office on the evening of the 8th. inst., complaining of a pain in his side and with symptoms of lung fever of pleurisy, and was not able to be in the office afterwards.  He was not considered dangerously sick by his friends until a very short time before his death, when he suddenly became worse and died in a few hours.  Mr. Higgins was born in England (precise locality not known) on the 4th. day of September, 1820.  He served for several years in the British Army, on the Peninsula.  After his term of service expired in the army, he came to America, being then quite a young man, and settled in or near Perrysville, then in Richland County, about the year 1844, and engaged in the business of school teaching, and for several years was a member of the family of William Cowan, Esq., with whom he boarded.  Subsequently and along about the year 1847 or 1848, he was appointed Deputy Clerk of the Court of Common Pleas of Richland County under William W. Irwin, who was then Clerk of the Court, since which time he has been a resident of this city and county, with the exception of about six months, during which time he resided in the State of Michigan.  He was appointed Clerk of the Court upon the resignation of Calvin A. Croninger, and was elected to the office in the year 1855 or 1856.  After serving a portion of his time he resigned and removed to a farm in the vicinity of Ontario.  Here he remained a greater portion of the time until the election of Wm. Ritter to the office of Clerk, by whom he was appointed Deputy Clerk, and with whom he remained during his six years' term of office.  After the expiration of Mr. Ritter's term, Mr. Higgins removed to Eaton Rapids, Michigan, and engaged in the cigar and tobacco business.  He remained here less than a year, when he again returned to Mansfield, and shortly after his return he again entered the Clerk's office, this time as Deputy under Clerk Harmon.  He served in the same capacity under Clerk Bradford, and at the time of his death was a Deputy under Clerk Dill.  He has thus been connected with the Court, either as Clerk or Deputy, almost continuously since the year 1847, under all the clerks, no matter of what political party, and in which position he was without a rival.  He was prompt, efficient, correct, honest and obliging.  In his long practice he became a walking, talking index to the files and records of the office, and was always pleasant, kind and obliging with the court, members of the bar and all who had any business transactions with the Clerk's office.  He was unassuming and retiring in his disposition, a man of strictly temperate habits, and always to be found at his post of duty.  He had at the time of his death, and for many years prior thereto, so far as he knew, no living blood relative outside of his own family.  He made an honest living for himself and family, which seemed to be the height of his worldly ambition, and although possessed of a comfortable home, he was not rich in this world's goods.  In 1871 he was elected a Justice of the Peace, and served with great credit in that office for a period of three years.  At the time of his death he held the office of Register of Virginia Military School Lands by appointment of Governor Bishop.  He lived and died "an honest man" regretted by all, and especially by the Court, bar and the officers of the county.  He leaves a wife and two sons to mourn his loss.  Green be his memory.   [Ohio Liberal:  23 October 1878]

Highwarden, ---- -- An examination of the child of which Minerva Highwarden was the mother and which it was supposed had come to its death violently and by the hands of the maternal relative, was held at the Mayor's office last Thursday, Dr. Race conducting it.  It was proven by various means used by physicians that the child had been born alive.  The remains were however held to await the inquest by Coroner Erwin, who on Friday performed it at his office.  The result of the inquest was the same as that of the examination held by Dr. Race, and the Coroner returned a verdict that there was not sufficient evidence to warrant the arraignment of the mother, no marks of violence being found upon the child, and its death immediately after birth under the circumstances was apt to result from many causes.  The mother was therefore discharged from custody.  [Ohio Liberal:  12 March 1879]

Hiles, Richard -- DIED -- Near Nevada, Story Co., Iowa, Mr. RICHARD HILES, in the ninety-second year of his age.  The above well known and truly venerable man, for many years amongst us, held the distinction of being literally the "oldest inhabitant".  A few items in regard to his history will therefore be interesting to many.  He was born in Lincolnshire, England, January 24th., 1780 -- old style, which in our calendar would be January 2d.  He married a Miss Ann Faulkner in 1814 and emigrated to this country in 1830 -- arriving on July 4th. of that year.  He remained a citizen of this community to within three years, when he went to spend his remaining days with his daughter, Mrs. Mathews, near Nevada, Story County, Iowa.  In 1840, he lost his beloved companion, and also his eldest son within a few days of each other.  These sudden and terrible visitations of Providence caused him to think, as never before, of Death, and eternity, and shortly afterwards embraced religion.  He connected himself with the M.E. Church, living a consistent member thereof up to his decease, having a good hope and trust of meeting those whom he loved on earth in a "better country".   [Shelby Independent News:  13 April 1871, Vol. 3, No. 24]

Hill, Lydia A. €€

Hill, Mary (Ruhl) -- The following from the Galion (OH) Inquirer of last evening will be sad news to Mrs. Hill's many friends in this city, the deceased lady having lived here for several years prior to her marriage to Rev. Thomas Hill, and being known as a Christian lady of many accomplishments and good works:  Mrs. Rev. Hill, nee Mary Ruhl, died yesterday at Chesterville at 4 p.m., after having suffered an operation for a stricture of the bowels several days previous.  On Wednesday night the parsonage caught fire, presumably from spontaneous combustion in some oily rags which had been used in swathing Mrs. Hill's body, and which had been placed in the kitchen.  When discovered by Rev. Hill the fire had made such headway that the family had barely time to escape and he was badly burned about the face in an endeavor to fight the fire.  Mrs. Hill was removed with difficulty, but her death was due to the stricture and not the result of fright as was rumored.   Mrs. Hill is a sister of Mrs. O.T. Hart, of this city, Mrs. Rupp, of Bucyrus and Mrs. S.G. Cummings, of Mansfield.  She was born in Galion in 1833, in the old Franklin house, and has many friends here who will regret to hear of her sad death.  She was married to Rev. Hill when he resided at Crestline, nearly two years ago.  The remains will be brought to Galion on the Big Four 5 p.m. train today and will be taken to the residence of her sister, Mrs. O.T. Hart, on North Columbus Street.  The funeral will take place tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, with services at the English Lutheran church, conducted by Rev. Dr. H.L. Wiles, of Mansfield, assisted by Rev. J.K. Argo and Rev. E.P. Elcock.  The remains will be placed in the vault at Fairview Cemetery.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  20 May 1893]

Hine, Jacob -- Jacob Hine was found dead at his home, 235 South Adams Street, about 9 o'clock Wednesday night, having hanged himself.  There is no doubt that it was premeditated suicide.  Hine's neighbors had missed him Wednesday and they notified the police, who forced an entrance into the house and found Hine hanging in the parlor.  He had apparently been dead some time.  Drink and trouble with his wife are said to be responsible for Hine's untimely end.  The victim of the tragedy was 62 years of age and well known in Mansfield.  He has been in the employ of Stoodt & Sons as a butcher for seven or eight years and was reckoned a good worker when sober.  Hine would work along for a period of any where from three to six months and then he would get on a drunk and quit work for a week or two.  When his supply of money ran out each time he would return to work, according to the story of his employer.  These sprees have been getting more numerous of late and it is also stated that Hine had trouble with his wife, who is a daughter of the late George Baker.  It is probable that Hine's drinking bouts had something to do with the trouble.  To friends, Hine claimed that his wife's mind was getting weak, while Mrs. Hine, it is stated, told her friends that her husband was trying to poison her.  Mr. & Mrs. Hine owned a fine property well furnished on South Adams Street.  In addition to this Mrs. Hine had investments, the property having come to her from her father's estate.  A week or ten days ago Hine started on one of his periodical drunks and quit work with Stoodt & Sons.  His employers thought nothing unusual about the matter and supposed he would return to work again when he got ready.  About this time Hine and his wife had a disagreement which resulted in Mrs. Hine's going to Crestline to live with a married sister.  The neighbors, of course, were cognizant of the state of affairs in the family and when Hine was not seen about all day Wednesday they proceeded to make an investigation.  They found the house securely locked and when they were unable to gain admission they notified the police, who entered the house and found Hine as above described.  The house was in good order with the exception of an overturned chair and a piece of rope which lay on the floor and had evidently been discarded in favor of a piece of half-inch rope as a means of suicide.  It is probable that Hine feared that the manila rope might break so he used a half-inch rope.  Hine had very cleverly tied a regular hangman's noose.  After the noose was made he tied the other end to the door knob and then passed it up over the top f the door which was quite a tall one.  Next he placed a chair beside the door, mounted it, placed his neck in the noose and kicked the chair away.  When found Hine's feet were six or eight inches from the floor.  The heavy rope had made death by strangling many times longer than would have been the case had the piece of manila rope been used.  Coroner Baughman was immediately notified by the police and he paid a visit to the scene of the suicide and cut down the body.  In Hine's pocket was found $2.65, but he left no message.  It is stated that Hine told a friend on Monday that he placed $75 in money in one of the banks as he did not have any use for it.  Coroner Baughman will old an inquest commencing at 3 o'clock this afternoon but he states that unless something unexpected should develop his verdict must be suicide.  Mrs. Hine was not notified of her husband's suicide last night, but a message was sent to her at Crestline this morning and it is expected that she will arrive here some time this afternoon.  Mr. and Mrs. Hine had no children and it is stated that Hine's nearest relative in Mansfield is a nephew, but at this writing the coroner has not yet secured the man's name.  The suicide created considerable of a sensation in the southeast part of town, although it was not known in the business part of the city to any extent last night.  It is stated that Hine is a member of the German lodge of Odd Fellows.  --  [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield):  20 May 1898, Vol. 14, No. 43]

Hines, Benjamin F. -- Bellville, March 24 -- The body of Benjamin F. Hines, father of Mayor Hines, and a prominent resident of this place and well known throughout Richland County, was found in the Clear Fork creek, east of here about 8 o'clock this morning.  It could not be told from the position of the body whether the deceased had come to his death by accident or had suicided.  The former theory, however, is generally accepted.  Mr. Hines has been subject to fits of dizziness and it is supposed that he may have fallen in the water while suffering from one of these attacks.  Mr. Hines lives in town, but owns a farm just east of the corporation.  Yesterday morning, armed with an ax, he started for his farm for the purpose of planting a number of willows along the bank of the Clear Fork, which runs through his farm.  As he frequently ate dinner with his tenant on the farm his absence at noon created no comment, but when he failed to return home last night his relatives and friends became alarmed and organized searching parties.  Throughout all last night the country surrounding the village was traversed, but with no success.  This morning the hunt was continued and, in following the bank of the creek, the searching party found Mr. Hines ax standing against a tree and four willow shoots that the old gentleman had planted along the bank.  Continuing the search they found the deceased's blouse hanging on the fence.  A few feet farther on in the stream was found the dead man's body submerged in the water with the exception of the head.  The remains were carried back to the village and placed in the hands of an undertaker for preparation for burial.  Mr. Hines was about 62 years of age, was raised in the country near this place and lived in Bellville for many years and was a man of considerable means.  He leaves a wife and one son, C. Burt Hines, our present Mayor, besides a large circle of friends.  For many years he has been a Mason and Odd Fellow and these two bodies will have charge of the funeral, which will take place from the family residence at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  01 April 1893]

Hines, Benjamin F. -- Wednesday.  C. Burt Hines, of Bellville, was in the city today.  In conversation with a SHIELD man Mr. Hines, in speaking of his father's sudden death recently, said that it is his opinion that he died of heart disease or apoplexy and not by suicide, from the fact that the deceased's father dropped over dead some years ago and his mother died while sitting in a chair conversing with friends.  In fact, Mr. Hines says, sudden deaths seem to be prevalent in the family.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  01 April 1893]

Hipp, Gustavus Adolphus "Ed" -- The death of "Ed" Hipp, mention of which was made in yesterday's paper, was received by the deceased's many friends with much sorrow, for it took from their midst a young man who has always been industrious and highly respected by all who knew him.  Gustavus Adolphus Hipp, or "Ed" as he was called by his acquaintances, was born in Bucyrus July 27th., 1864, and was the son of Sebastian Hipp and wife, of South Adams Street.  In 1872 the deceased moved with his parents to this city, where he attended school.  In 1884 he went to work in the Aultman-Taylor shop, where he was employed as tool dresser up to the time of his illness.  On April 11th., 1886, Mr. Hipp was married to Miss Mary Costello, of Crestline, and two children, a son and a daughter, who are 2 and 3 years old respectively, are the result of the union.  On the 6th. of November last the deceased was taken ill, and the physicians announced that he was suffering with dropsy.  An operation was performed on him last Wednesday and the physicians came to the conclusion that he was suffering from an unknown ailment.  He grew gradually worse, and at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon, surrounded by his wife, children, parents and brothers and sisters, he departed this life, remaining conscious to the last.  The deceased was powerfully built and a robust young man, and it can hardly be realized that he is numbered with the dead.  During Mr. Hipp's illness Rev.

Infantry, of the fourth division.  It was during the fierce fighting in the Argonne forest that the young man fell in battle.  With the many other soldiers who made the supreme sacrifice, he was buried in France, and Wednesday's notification from Washington was the first intimation that the body was on the way to the United States.  Irwin was the son of Mr. & Mrs. Oliver Hiskey, of Bellville, and had a great number of friends who will no doubt turn out with the soldiers in paying the last tribute of respect.  It is likely the body will arrive in Bellville the first of the coming week.  [Richland County Leader:  05 August 1921, Vol. 2, No. 34]

Hiskey, Samuel -- Another sacrifice has been added to the many who before have fallen in the defense of our much loved country against the most wicked and terrible rebellion this world has ever witnessed, and which must be calculated to awaken in the hearts of many friends, a deeper hatred toward that institution which is the cause of such an unnatural and bloody war.  Samuel Hiskey, son of Rev. Geo. Hiskey of this county, died March 5th., 1863, in Lebanon, Ky., of typhoid pneumonia.  He enlisted in Captain R.C. Brown's Company, 64th. Regiment, O.V., with which he went to Kentucky, where he fell a victim to disease, and ____ an illness of nearly seven weeks closed the mortal conflict.  Although far from home and principally among strangers, such care and attention, as the circumstances would admit, were bestowed upon him, receiving, also the best medical aid that could be rendered, and from the 3rd. of February until his spirit left its earthly habitation, was kindly and tenderly cared for by his father, who afterward brought his remains home for interment.  The deceased was a pious and devoted Christian.  During the time of his afflictions he enjoyed a calm and peaceful state of mind, and especially a day or two before his departure, a serene happiness filled his soul, and he appeared, in is mortal measure, "to enter into the joy of his Lord."  Thus he passed away to receive, we trust, the Christian victor's crown.  His burial occurred on the 10th. inst., when a large congregation assembled to express their esteem for him and to honor his memory.  May the consolations of Him who gave his life for the world fill the hearts of the bereaved.  -- S.K., Lexington, O., March 22d.  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  26 March 1862]
