Knapp, J. Israel -- Lines on the death of J.I. Knapp.  The following lines were suggested on hearing of the death of J. Israel Knapp.  This young man sometime during last spring left Mansfield and started the over land route for California.  Like many other young men, he resolved to go to the El Dorado of the west, and there to seek a fortune.  But alas! his golden dreams of wealth were not realized;  he was taken with the Cholera, and after a short illness died.  His grave is five hundred and fifty miles from Independence, and twenty from the upper crossing of the South Platte.  In his last moments he thought of his home and of his mother.  He told his comrade to write to her and tell her of his death.  Tell her said he, with his dying breath, "I died resigned to my fate."  On the dreary sands of the distant plain, They have laid him down to rest --- He slumbers alone in the far off wilds, In the wilds of the distant west.   His golden dream have faded away,  All fled are his hopes of gain, He fell in his youth;  in the spring of life ---  He fell on the distant plain.  No Sister's or Brother's hand was there, Nor a mother's voice to cheer --- Neither were there to ease his pain,  Or shed for him a tear.   With his dying breath, as he dying lay, He lisped his mother's name, Comrade, said he, oh tell to her, As I lived, I died the same.   Tell her "I died resigned to my fate,"  That I thought of her in death,  Her face and form were with me there,   They were with my latest breath.   Far away from Independence fort, Far --- far from city or town;  Far from his friends, and far from home, 'Tis there they have laid him down.   No sculptured marble marks the spot,  No weeping willow there,   No monument above his head, To tell they have laid him there.  His course is run, and his weary head, Sunk down at last to rest;   Let him slumber on 'tis a happy sleep, In the distant wilds of the west.  N.B.  The relations of the deceased request the Shield and Banner to copy.  Mansfield, Ohio, 1850.  [Richland County Democrat:  28 September 1850, Vol. 1, No. 24]

Koch, Mary (Riendfuss) -- Mrs. Michael Koch, of 66 South Diamond Street, commits suicide by drowning!  Had a hurricane burst from a clear sky the excitement would not have been half so great as that exhibited by the residents of South Diamond Street Sunday night when the above report was circulated.  Mrs. Koch had been suffering with malarial fever for several weeks and last Friday typhoid fever in its worst stage had developed and the patient was affected with hot an cold chills, sinking spells and delirium.   Yesterday morning Dr. Stewart made the usual call and left strict injunctions that Mrs. Koch should be very carefully watched.  Last evening Mr. Koch and his father sat on the front porch of the house with the door to the sick room ajar.  At Mrs. Koch's request the door was closed.  Within a few minutes one of Mr. Koch's little daughters came running around to him exclaiming "Oh, papa, mamma's in the well".  The startling announcement proved to be too true.  Mr. Koch and his father, peering down the well, which was located in the yard back of the house, saw Mrs. Koch lying in the well, half submerged in the water.  The husband attempted to raise the cover but his strength failed him and he fainted and was carried into the house, where he was resuscitated.  Meanwhile neighbors arrived and Ed Hein procured a rope and lowered himself into the well and brought out the inanimate body of Mrs. Koch.  She had evidently jumped in head first.  It was evident to all present that she had been some time before the daughter informed the father.  Mr. Koch thinks that his wife was delirious at the time of the suicide, which is undoubtedly the case, as she had previously talked in a peculiar manner.  The deceased's maiden name was Mary Riendfuss, daughter of Lewis Riendfuss and wife, and was born in Philadelphia, Pa., in 1857, and came to this city with her parents when 7 years of age.  In 1875 she married Michael Koch, who is employed at the Humphryes works, and was the mother of four children, one boy and three girls.  Besides these she leaves two brothers and three sisters.  The time of the funeral has been fixed 3 o'clock Tuesday afternoon.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 September 1892]

Koch, Mary (Riendfuss) -- Thursday.  Last evening Coroner Maglott filed the following report in the Koch case:  "From the sworn testimony given in the above mentioned matter, I do find that said deceased, Mrs. Michael Koch, while in a state of mental aberration did the act of plunging into the well that took her life, denominated suicide.  John Maglott, Coroner."   [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 September 1892]

Krabill, Michael -- Michael Krabill, a stonemason, residing at No. 10 Crouse Street, died at 10:30 o'clock last night under circumstances which, to say the least, are very suspicious of suicide.  Mr. Krabill is about 39 years old.  His father, Jacob Krabill, who lives on West First Street, was seen by a SHIELD man this morning and, in speaking of his son's death, said that Michael had been drinking continuously for the past three weeks, and that during the past week he had not eaten a thing, subsisting on liquor,  Yesterday morning the deceased arose at 5 o'clock and came up town, returning home again at 10 in the forenoon in a state of intoxication.  He was around the house drunk until late in the afternoon, when he went into the cellar, returning within a few moments.  Shortly after he became violently sick, vomiting and suffering terribly from cramps.  Dr. Ecki was sent for and expressed to the family his belief that the sick man had taken poison.  The family then informed him that Krabill had been in the cellar during the evening, where they kept a box of "Rough on Rats".  The physician had arrived too late to be of service and the man died at 10:30.  Dr. Ecki was seen this morning and said that Krabill's symptoms were those of a poisoned person, but as the family did not know positively whether he had taken any of the "Rough on Rats" his symptoms might also have been the result of his heavy drinking.  the proper way to ascertain whether Krabill died from poison or whisky would be to take out the stomach and send it away for analysis, but as the family have not requested it, no investigation will be made.  The funeral will be held from the residence at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon, Rev. Buesser officiating.  Krabill's father and brothers, who live in this city, are known as sober, industrious men, the deceased being the only one who drank to excess.  They naturally feel bad over the affair.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  30 May 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 2]
