Hollinshead, Wallace J. -- BELIEVED IN CHRISTIAN SCIENCE AND DIED WITHOUT MEDICAL ATTENDANCE  -- Coroner Bushnell Called Upon to Investigate the Death of Wallace J. Hollinshead -- Coroner William Bushnell was called upon this morning to investigate the death of Wallace J. Hollinshead, a Christian Scientist, residing at 87 East Fourth street.  It was learned that the young man had had no regular medical attendance and that he died this morning about 2:00, presumably of consumption.  The coroner, accompanied by Constable Winters, went to the Hollinshead home, where the body was viewed and some of the facts in the case learned.  The inquest will be held this evening.    Wallace J. Hollinshead was born at Bucyrus March 14, 1881, the son of Mr. & Mrs. Frank M. Hollinshead, now of this city, and lived there until four years ago when he came to this city, which has been his home ever since.  He was employed for awhile by the Buckeye Bakery as delivery man and he was employed at other places here.  He was also in the bakery business for himself until, on account of illness, he was not able to continue the work.  For the past four years he has attended Christian Scientist services and for about two years he has been a member of the church, believing firmly in its doctrines.  It was learned at the Hollinshead home that Wallace was ill for about six weeks, part of the time being able to be out of bed.  The trouble seemed to be catarrhal consumption.  Mrs. Mary J. Drake, the Christian Science physician, also the pastor of the First Church of Christ Scientist, attended him.  The claim is made that the young man refused absolutely to have medical attendance, saying:  "If God can't cure me the doctors can't."  There was a fire at the Hollingshead home about 5:00 Wednesday afternoon and this seemed to have had a bad effect on the sick man.  He grew worse from that time.  Mrs. Bertie Klahr, of Bucyrus, has been here at the bedside of her brother for the past two weeks.  The remains will be taken at 11:25 tonight on the Pennsylvania to Bucyrus, where the funeral services, conducted by Mrs. Mary J. Drake, of this city, the pastor of the local Church of Christ, Scientist, will be held Sunday morning at 10:30.  The mother and sister of the young man are Christian Scientists, the former belonging here and the sister at Bucyrus.  The father does not belong to the church.  Mrs. Drake resides at College Place and here the services are usually held.  There is a small membership here of about a dozen and a congregation of possibly twenty at the services.  Mrs. Drake and Mrs. Klahr were anxious to show that there is a great difference between the teachings of Dowie and those of Mrs. Eddy, the head of the Christian Scientists.  "We believe if God or prayer can't hal, no one can.  It is not like Dowieism at all.  Christian Science is divine mind healing, the understanding of the mind of God.  We are instruments in his hands.  Wallace had a great horror of Dowieism."  Mrs. Drake asked if he wanted a physician and he said he did not.  If he had wanted a physician one would have been called.  The Christian Scientists do not go against the law;  they obey, even to putting out cards.  Physicians are not forbidden, but it is believed that if divine metaphysics will not avail, nothing will.  The last words Wallace spoke were:  "I am in the eternal life."   [Mansfield News:  22 November 1901, Vol. 17, No. 225]

Holm, Edward -- Death, the grim reaper, was abroad again last night and claimed another victim in the person of Edward Holm, one of the prominent young business men of the city.  Mr. Holm was taken sick early last spring.  He grew rapidly worse, but under the treatment of his physician recovered sufficiently to be able to be taken to Michigan.  The rapid recovery of health which was hoped for did not come and after a stay of several weeks he returned to the city.  Some eight weeks since Mr. Holm took to his bed at the Sherman House, and was subsequently removed to the residence of his brother, Geo. A. Holm, at No. 224 West Third Street.  His condition varied from day to day, but yesterday he was considerably better.  Miss Alice Holm, a sister who has been at the bedside of the patient for the past two weeks, left for her home in Bucyrus about 8 o'clock in the evening, thinking that her brother was in no immediate danger.  The deceased's sister-in-law, who had cared for him unceasingly during his illness, assisted him to walk about the house and yard and at 10 o'clock seated the sick man in a chair upon the veranda.  Mr. Holm conversed freely with his sister-in-law and made plans as to what he would do if he got well.  Suddenly Mr. Holm threw up his hands and exclaimed: "Quick! Call some one!"  As Mrs. Holm turned to look at him he fell out of the chair and became unconscious.  Capt. W.H. Taylor, who happened to be passing, assisted Mrs. Holm to carry the patient into the house, George Holm being absent at the time.  Death resulted in ten minutes, the immediate cause being the result of the bursting of an abscess in the throat, which filled the lungs and caused strangulation.  The deceased was born in Bucyrus thirty-eight years ago, came to this city in 1873 and became a member of the firm of Holm & Bro.  "Ed" as he was familiarly called, numbered his friends by the hundreds and was always warm-hearted, genial and jovial.  The name of Ed. Holm was always prominent in dancing circles and no affair of this kind in his "set" was considered complete without him.  He was a member of the Knights of Pythias and also a member of the B.P.O. Elks a well as the Mohican Club.  A telegram was at once sent to Bucyrus notifying the mother and sister of the sad event an they are expected to arrive here at an early hour this morning.  At this writing no funeral arrangements have been made but in all probability the remains will be taken to Bucyrus for interment.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 August 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 11]

Hopkins, Jessie

Hopkins, John -- Sawed in Twain.  The appended item taken from the Findlay Republican will be of interest to the readers of the NEWS as the unfortunate man was well known in Richland County, having formerly resided at Lexington from 1872 and 1877.  Mr. Hopkins attended the school at the seminary in Lexington.  His wife was the daughter of Charles Boals, of Ontario.  The horrible accident, which occurred Wednesday, is here detailed:  John C. Hopkins, of 413 Cherry Street, met with a horrible accident resulting in his almost instant death Wednesday at Funk & Plotner's reel and tank factory, where he was employed.  His body was all but cut in twain by a circular saw.  Until about 9 o'clock Mr. Hopkins had been at work at a table, ripping out cistern staves.  Rush R. Plotner was at work at the circular saw, tenoning the ends of bull-wheel shafts.  Two or three of these had been finished and rolled off upon a frame at the right of the saw carriage.  Mr. Plotner then began to make preparations to roll the shafts back over the carriage onto a small truck.  To do this a small skid was placed from the carriage to the truck.  About this time Mr. Hopkins came over, evidently to assist Mr. Plotner in moving the shaft.  The latter was about four feet from the saw, placing the skid in position.   Mr. Hopkins was standing just behind Mr. Plotner and between him and the saw, which is about two feet in diameter and a few inches from the floor.  The end of the carriage, on which the shafts or other material to be awed are placed, is a few inches in front of the saw.  Mr. Plotner spoke to Mr. Hopkins and then stooped over to pick up a small block of wood to place on the skid.  While doing so he hard Hopkins utter a cry and looking around wsa horrified to see the unfortunately man wedged in at the end of the carriage and against the rapidly revolving saw.  It was only an instant's work for Mr. Plotner to throw off the belt, but it was too late.  The saw had ploughed its teeth deep into Mr. Hopkins body.  Mr. Plotner and other employees at once disengaged the unfortunate man's body from the saw but not without some difficulty.  As he was laid down upon the floor he looked up to Mr. Plotner and said "Good bye, Rush".  They were his last words.  His life blood poured foth from the severed arteries and he soon became unconscious.  His wife arrived a few minutes later and spoke to her husband, but he made no reply.  Drs. T.G. Barnhill and F.W. Entrikin arrived in response to calls, but, of course, could do nothing.  Despite his awful injuries, it was about 30 minutes before the unfortunate man expired.  It is not known just how the accident occurred.  Mr. Hopkins had the reputation of being a very careful man.  It is supposed, however, that when he went to step over the carriage, which is about a foot high, and a foot wide, he stumbled and fell against the saw.  Another supposition is that he placed his left foot upon the end cross piece of the carriage and that it slipped off, throwing his left leg against the saw.  At any rate the saw evidently first struck the calf of his left leg and pulled him down.  The saw made an ugly cut from his left leg up to his hips and then straight across and through his body just below the small of his back.  His body was nearly cut in two, being only held together by some muscles and the skin at the front of his abdomen.  The wonder is that his death was not instantaneous.  It must have been practically so.  The deceased was 40 years of age and came here with his family from Steubenville about three years ago.  He had worked for Messrs. Funk & Plotner for the past two years and previously was in the employ of Evans & Perfect.  He leaves a wife and two sons and two daughters.  The oldest child is 14 and the youngest is 6 years of age.   [Semi-Weekly News:  15 September 1896, Vol. 12, No. 75]

Huber died at his home, No. 81 East First Street, at 1 o'clock, Saturday morning.  The deceased, who was more than 74 years of age, had suffered two strokes of apoplexy and this is supposed to have caused death.  Mr. Huber was about town Wednesday and was apparently in as good health as usual, so that his demise was rather unexpected.  Mr. Huber was born near Wittenberg, Germany, and came to the United States about the year 1846.  He first settled at Zoar, in Tuscarawas County, but shortly removed to Mansfield.  Later he was married to Miss Minnie Bountie, in this city.  The deceased learned his trade, that of blacksmith, in a building which was formerly located where the residence of George Peter Ackerman is at present, on South Main Street.  Mr. Huber did not follow this trade much, preferring to work with horses and he was a teamster for years.  Mrs. Huber preceded her husband to the better land 11 weeks ago.  There are six living children, William, Thomas, John, Henry and Miss Minnie Huber, of this city, and Albert Huber, of Galion.  Two daughters, Lizzie and Alice, died some years ago.  There are 17 grandchildren.  [Semi-Weekly News:  07 December 1897, Vol. 13, No. 98]

Huffman, Robert -- Robert Huffman Spent Days in Distress When Riches Awaited Him -- Heart Broken Sister Comes for Remains -- That Robert Huffman, who died Thursday morning in the Hallam House without funds, could have lived in ease and luxury if he had so desired was made known last night when Mr. and Mrs. J. A.  Patterson arrived from Shiloh, Ohio to arrange for the burial.  Mrs. Patterson is an only sister of the deceased, and she is reputed to be worth several millions.  Tearfully last night she stated that she had been seeking her brother for over twenty years and that her husband had made three trips to California in search of him.  Once word came that her brother was in a mining town in Nevada, and Mr. Patterson hurried there, only to find that his brother-in-law had gone to Montana.  Later, news came that he was again in California, and upon the arrival of Mr. Patterson, he found that the object of his search had left previous to his coming and had left no trace.  Giving up the search, he returned to Ohio.  Robert Huffman was born of wealthy parents and upon their death inherited a fortune which he quickly lost in unwise speculation.  Never having learned a trade, it was necessary for him to earn his living at common labor.  Too proud to ask aid of his more fortunate sister, he was content to wander about the West working as a laborer, when a good home was awaiting him in Ohio.  The news of his death was received by Mrs. Patterson last Thursday and she at once took train for this city, arriving here last night.  Late last night no arrangements had been made for the funeral.  The remains will probably be shipped to Ohio.  Robert Huffman was born in Ohio sixty five years ago.  He came to California in 1868 and from that time left the state only at intervals.  He never returned to his own home in Ohio.  His only surviving relative is the sister, Mrs. Hulda Patterson.  Aug 14, 1910.  Submitted by Susan.  [Portland Newspaper (Portland, Oregon)]  Additional note from submitter:  Notes:  Using a GEDCom date calculator, Aug 14 1910, the date of the article turns out to be a Sunday.  The Thursday preceding is Aug 11.  This article is purported to be from a Portland, Oregon newspaper.  On speaking with two surviving grandchildren of Huldah, Esther and Martha,  the story provided much amusement regarding the rumored millions that Huldah was worth.  It was recalled that Huldah and James said they sure wished they knew where these millions were.  Although Huldah had some of her own money, perhaps from her never married aunts and uncles, one of whom was "California" John Patterson, her mother died young, and her father and other relatives were farmers.  Her father had a second family, and died a farmer in Kansas.  The houses that remain,  where Huldah grew up and then moved across a country road to marry and raise a family, and the lifestyle that the family maintained,  indicate that they were not  poor, but neither were they any where near millionaires.  The two homes are in the NE part of Butler Township, Richland County, on Noble Rd, west of Townline, about five miles west of Savannah.  According to the Patterson Family Bible, Robert was born 22 August 1845.  After his mother's death in 1849, he and his sister were raised by their grandparents, Robert and Nancy (Freeborn) Patterson, and their father remarried, eventually moving to Kansas.  Susan Hopkins.  Susan's family tree database can be found online at http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=thefarm]

Huggins, John B. -- Captain John B. Huggins, a well known traveling man, died at his room in the Tracy & Avery house on Main street, Saturday evening at 7:00 after an illness of three weeks with typhoid malaria.  He was a true gentleman in every sense of that term;  his friends were legion and his untimely death was received with deepest grief by all who knew him.  Though it was known that he was quite ill, it was not realized that his illness was so serious as it proved to be.  Mr. Huggins was born in Glasgow, Scotland, July 19, 1871, a son of Mr. & Mrs. William Beers Huggins.  In 1882 he came to the United States and to this city with other members of the family.  He attended the Mansfield public schools and later was a student at the Ohio State University at Columbus.  For awhile he was in the newspaper business, being a reporter for the MANSFIELD HERALD, the NEWS and the SHIELD.  In 1893 Mr. Huggins organized Co. M., Eighth regiment O.N.G., was its first captain and the company was largely equipped at his own expense.  It was a great disappointment to the company when Nov. 1, 1893, he resigned the captaincy, owing to having entered upon work which would take him from the city.  He was on the state for some time and for several years was a member of the Byrnes Bros' 8 Bells company.  About a year and a half before the Spanish American war broke out, Mr. Huggins again joined his old company, this time as a private, but early in 1898 he was elected to the position of first sergeant, succeeding First Sergeant Ben Sloane.  He served with the company during the war and while the regiment was at Camp Alger, Virginia, he went to Eldrid, Pa., where he was united in marriage with Miss Bertha Guldin, who survives him.  The marriage was kept a secret for some time.  While in Cuba, Mr. Huggins was very ill with fever and on the transport, returning from Cuba he became worse with malarial fever and for some time at Montauk Point he was in a critical condition.  A more accommodating friend could not be found than was "Jack" Huggins and the boys of Co. M are always telling of this kindness, Genial, wholesouled, he always brought sunshine and cheer and was beloved by all.  For some time past he has been a commercial traveler for Landers, Frary & Clark, of New Britain, Conn.  He has also been connected with the Holly Manufacturing company, of Lakeville, Conn.  He has for sometime made Mansfield his headquarters of late, but his home was at New Haven, Conn.  Mrs. Huggins was with him during his last illness, as was also his brother, Fred, who came the latter part of the week.  The typhoid malaria was greatly complicated with chronic diarrhea contracted in Cuba.  He was a member of Venus Lodge, No. 152, F.& A.M.  Mr. Huggins was a brother of William J. Huggins, of Los Angeles, Cal.;  Fred M. Huggins, of New York City;  A.T. Huggins, of Portland, Ore.;  T.S. Huggins, of Rockhampton, Australia;  Mrs. W.E. Sprott, of Porterville, Cal.;  Miss Louise Huggins, of Portland, Ore.;  Mrs. J.D. Holden, of Glenwood Springs, Col.;  Mrs. John Foster, Morganstown, W. Va.  The remains were removed to the home of Mr. & Mrs. Charles S. Williams, on Blymyer avenue, where the funeral services were held this afternoon at 2:00, conducted by the Rev. A.B. Putnam, pastor of Grace Episcopal Church, of which the deceased was a member.  Co. M., Eighth regiment, O.N.G., together with others of his old comrades of the Spanish American war, attended the services in a body.  It was a large funeral and the floral tributes were numerous and beautiful, testifying to the love and esteem in which he was held.  The pallbearers were Anson Smith, E.R. Endly, A.B. Endly, John DeCamp, James Byers, Major Fred S. Marquis.  Interment was made in Mansfield cemetery.  [Mansfield News:  09 December 1901, Vol. 17, No. 238]  << Image >>

Humphryes, John Jr. -- The sad news was received here today of the death at New Orleans of John Humphryes, Jr., secretary and treasurer of the Humphryes Manufacturing Co., of this city.  The death occurred at 3:50 this morning, the immediate cause being pulmonary trouble.  Last October M. and Mrs. Humphryes left this city for Albuquerque, New Mexico, with the hope of improving the former's health.  For a time after his arrival there his health improved.  Later he moved from Albuquerque to Las Cruces and hence to El Paso, Texas.  The rainy season at the latter place made him hope to seek the soothing air of Asheville, N.C. for which place they started last week.  It seems that they only got as far as New Orleans, when the journey was abandoned and the invalid was compelled to take to his bed, from which he was not to rise.  For several years the deceased's health had been bad.  Hard work, close application to a growing and prosperous industry, made so by his own pluck and ability, had impaired a strong constitution and he sought the best medical talent available.  He was, in many respects, a remarkable business man, thoroughly conversant with every branch of the iron business.  In industrial matters he was authority and in all enterprises in which the city was concerned he was a prominent and important factor, being untiring and resourceful.  Mr. Humphryes came here about ten years ago from Salem, O., and organized the Manufacturing Company bearing his name, which, with the addition of new illness, is now probably the largest industry in the city.  He was a native of New York state, was about 45 years old and leaves a wife and two children, John and Robert.  Arrangements have not been made for the funeral and they will be announced later.  Robert Humphryes, brother of the deceased, left at noon today for New Orleans.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  04 March 1893]
