Long, Roscoe -- On Sunday afternoon at 10 o’clock the Evangelical church was filled to overflowing by the large number of relatives and friends who had assembled to take part in the funeral exercises of a dear friend, who had been called.  Although young in years, Roscoe had risen to a much higher plane than many far his senior, and had only a future of the brightest of prospects before him.  But death which is no respecter of persons and which has made so many homes lonely and disolate had again removed one of our dearest friends from among us, who was soon to be laid away in the silent tomb never again to greet and be greeted by those whom he loved and held dear to his heart.  The occasion was a very sorrowful one indeed and caused many tears to flow from the eyes of those who had assembled in due respect for the dead.  Having not yet arrived at the age of 19, Roscoe had finished a course at the high school in this place only a few months ago, and was one of the pleasantest and brightest pupils of the graduating class of 1903, to know him was to love him, only as a friend dear to all.  His stay in this world however, was only for a little while just for a time only just long enough by the way, to form many acquaintances of fond parents, brothers, sisters and kind friends, only to be severed while yet in youthful happiness by the icy hands of death.  Roscoe Long, son of Mr. & Mrs. John Long, was born May 9, 1885, and died Oct. 30, 1903, aged 18 years, 5 months and 21 days.  He leaves a father, mother, two sisters, four brothers and a large circle of friends to mourn his death.  He was a kind and industrious boy, a member of the class of 1903, of the Union schools at this place, and apparently a young man of bright prospects for the future. <<scripture omitted>>  [Butler Times:  07 November 1903, Vol. XI, No. 15]

Loose, Joseph -- Bellville, O., Aug. 6 -- The report reached this place this evening that Joseph Loose, residing east of this town and 2½ miles northwest of Butler, had committed suicide.  An investigation proved the truth of the report.  Dr. Eli Stofer, the physician summoned, found Loose lying on a bed in his house, the blood clotted around a bullet hole over his heart.  Death had evidently been instantaneous, as the aim was perfect, the bullet puncturing the heart.  Mrs. Loose, wife of the suicide, between her sobs, said that about 5 o'clock this afternoon she was startled by the report of a firearm in the bedroom.  Investigating she found that her husband had killed himself in the presence of one of their children.  Mrs. Loose assigns as the cause of her husband's suicide, despondency over the condition of his health, as he has been troubled with rheumatism in a most acute form for several moths and has been bothered with the disease for a number of years.  Loose was a middle-aged man and leaves a wife and several children.  He came here from Knox County about six months ago and purchased the John Teeter farm of sixty acres at Sheriff's sale.  As his health continued poor he became satisfied that he would not live long.  Accordingly he held a public sale on his farm last Saturday and sold all his stock and farming implements, intending to quit the business.  There is nothing known here of Loose's past life.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  13 August 1892]

Lortz, Philip

Lortz, Philip -- HANGED HIMSELF.  Philip Lortz, an unmarried German, aged twenty-eight, who, since his arrival in this city from Germany about three years ago, has worked at his trade as tailor for B. Sens & Son, committed suicide, late in the afternoon on Saturday, by hanging himself to a beam in the loft of the stable on the lot of Peter Koch, at 105 South East Diamond Street.  For some time after he had taken up his residence in the city, Lortz boarded with the Koch family until his dissipated habits became unendurable and he was told to look elsewhere for accommodations. He then moved next door to board with John Klein, where he lived until the time of his suicide. During the week previous Lortz had been on a protracted spree and was last seen in a saloon on Friday night. On going to his room on Saturday morning, Mrs. Klein found some of his clothing, his watch and other personal effects lying in a heap, but he failed to make his appearance during the day. Between six and seven o'clock in the evening his body, still warm, was found hanging in the stable as above stated, he evidently having been secreted there during the day and having hanged himself but a short time previous to his discovery.  The deceased is said to have been well educated and to have employed very much of his time in reading books, of which he had quite a large and well selected library. Lortz has at various times told his cousin, a resident of the city, that he would in all probability end his life by suicide, and so he did. The body was taken in charge by the township trustees and the interment was made, without religious service from the undertaking rooms of C. Schroer, Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock.  --  [THE OHIO LIBERAL: 14 May 1884, Vol. 12, No. 5]

Lybarger, Daniel -- DIED -- February 3, 1869, DANIEL LYBARGER, aged 83 years, 9 months and 12 days.  The deceased was born in Bedford County, Pennsylvania, April 21st., 1785.  In 1830 he emigrated to Knox County, Ohio.  In 1832 he came to Richland County, and opened a home in the then almost unbroken forest, with all the disadvantages of pioneer life around him and his then small family.  With the accustomed energy of those pioneer days, he soon transformed his forest home into a beautiful and valuable farm, upon which he spent his manhood and the declining years of his pious and useful life.  There he long lived to enjoy the fond endearments of family and home, and there he at last laid down his pilgrim staff, and gently fell asleep in Jesus, to awake in the new life of the Lords saints in glory.  In early life, probably at about 20 years of age, he was confirmed a member of the Lutheran Church.  Thus for a period of 60 years at least, did the seeds of early piety continue to grow, ever developing richer fruits of faith, until all was fully consummated in his enlarged Christian experience, holy life, and complete readiness at any time to answer the Master's call to the heavenly home.  His piety evidenced itself, in a quiet and orderly life, in universal charity to all believers, and a devoted attachment, faith and reverence for the Church and her ordinances, as well as an ardent love for God's ministries.  His death was sudden, having been called by a paralytic stroke, which he survived only fourteen hours, during which time he was speechless, but seemingly conscious.  Closing his eyes as in sleep, he gently passed away into the calm repose of death's peaceful slumbers.  His death was unexpected, as during the day of his attack he seemed more than usually well, and spent most of the day in reading Fleetwood's Life of Christ.  His funeral was largely attended.  The services were conducted by Rev. N.H. Loose, assisted by Rev. D. Summers.  [Shelby Independent News:  11 February 1869, Vol. 1, No. 14]
