McBride, Thomas -- Thomas McBride, one of the ablest attorneys of the Richland County bar, died at his residence, 132 South Main Street, Sunday, Jan. 12, at about 6 o'clock p.m. The sad news spread rapidly as it was sudden and unexpected, although he had had long been a sufferer form a malignant cancer of the face. The pus from the cancer could not be prevented from reaching the stomach which impaired the health and poisoned the blood, producing heart failure which was the immediate cause of death. Thomas McBride, son of Alexander and Ruth J. McBride, was born in Monroe Township, Nov. 20, 1827. His age therefore was 62 years, 1 month and 22 days. He was given a good country school education and spent two years at study at Chapel Hill College in Missouri, when he returned to Richland County and alternately taught school in winter and worked upon the farm in summer until he commenced reading law. He was admitted to the bar at Mt. Vernon [Knox Co.] by the district court in June, 1857. The succeeding eight years he practiced his profession at Defiance and he was prosecuting attorney of Defiance County from 1859 to 1863. Mr. McBride then returned to Mansfield and entered into partnership with Manuel May under the firm name of May & McBride. This partnership was dissolved in April, 1868. He then formed a partnership with A.M. Burns which was dissolved in April 1874. He then became a member of the firm of Burns, McBride & Burns. When John C. Burns, the junior member of the firm was elected prosecuting attorney the partnership became Burns & McBride and this firm dissolved about eight years ago, since which time Mr. McBride continued in the profession in partnership with his son and C.E. McBride, who since went into partnership with S.G. Cummings. A meeting of the Richland County bar will be held at 9 a.m. to-morrow to take action appropriate to the memory of the deceased. The members of the obituary committee are W.S. Bradford, S.G. Cummins and G.W. Geddes. While a resident of Defiance Mr. McBride was initiated into the lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows at that place and was a Past Noble Grand when admitted to membership in Mansfield Lodge No. 19, on a card in November, 1865. He was a faithful member of the order and the Odd Fellows will have charge of his funeral. Mr. McBride was made a Master Mason at Defiance and was a member in good standing of Venus Lodge No. 152. The Masons will not attend the funeral as a lodge but will attend individually. The deceased for years was an active member of the First Presbyterian church and for a number of years was the teacher of the Bible class. In September, 1857 Mr. McBride and Miss Barbara E. Brandt, of Springfield Township, were married, and to them were born six children, all of whom survive him, except Minnie B., the eldest daughter.

McClure, Oliver -- At five o'clock this morning the crew of a west bound Erie freight train discovered the dead body of Oliver McClure lying on the left hand side of the main track about 200 feet east of the Union Depot. The local officials were notified and at 6 o'clock Coroner Goodman took charge of the body. Mr. McClure lay alongside the track and was horribly mangled. His head was cut off, his right arm at the shoulder and his left arm at the elbow. The head was lying about five feet west of the body, one arm had been moved about 25 feet and the other remained along side the trunk. The body was taken to Schroer's undertaking establishment where it was viewed by a number of people. At first the identity of the corpse was unknown, as there was nothing on the body but a pipe; but finally Wm. Sams thought he recognized it and brought his son who positively identified it as the body of Oliver McClure, son of Mr. & Mrs. Joseph McClure, of 290 North Diamond Street. These are the only relatives of the dead man in the city. Oliver McClure was 18 years old. Investigation by the coroner reveals the fact that last night McClure and Curtis Waldsmith were together. About nine o'clock Waldsmith left him and went to his home. This, so far as known, is the last that was seen of McClure alive, as at five o'clock this morning his decapitated body was found on the track. -- [Butler Enterprise: 30 June 1905, Vol. 17, No. 21 as re-printed from the Mansfield Shield of June 22nd.]

McCoy, Eckels -- Monday.  Alfred McCoy and wife, of Brooklyn, N.Y., arrived in the city this morning to attend the funeral of Judge McCoy.  Mrs. Dr. Franklin McCoy, of Columbia City, Ind., a sister-in-law of the deceased, arrived yesterday.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  29 October 1892]

McCoy, Eckels -- Although not unexpected, the word that flashed over the city about noon, the simple declaration that "Judge McCoy is dead" was none the less a shock to our citizens.  It was a message meaning much to Mansfield and her citizens.  For nearly forty years the life that closed today had been a factor, strong and important, in every public enterprise or project that affected the wealth of this city.  For years Judge McCoy's figure has been upon our streets.  He was a man of strong constitution, vigorous physically and mentally, and it was little wonder that in all public movements his advice and counsel were sought among the first, and that his vigorous personality remains indelibly stamped upon the progress of the city of Mansfield and the county of Richland.  The deceased was prominent in politics and was always a thorough, consistent, earnest Democrat, and although his convictions were strong and unbending, he held and retained to a marked degree the esteem and respect of his political opponents and all citizens without regard to party affiliation.  This was evident in many ways, but in none so much as the large vote he always polled when a candidate for office upon the ticket of his chosen party.  The deceased was born of Scotch-Irish parentage in Wayne County, Ohio, June 22, 1825, and was the second son of Arwin and Jane McCoy.  When of sufficient age young Eckels served an apprenticeship as carpenter for three years in Wayne County, previous to his removal to Mansfield, where he continued his trade.  After his removal here he married Elizabeth Watson, by whom he had seven children, all of whom, except one, are living, and are well known to our citizens, the family being one of the most prominent in our city.  In 1846 he joined both the Masonic and Odd Fellows orders and has held all the important subordinate offices in Mansfield Lodge, No. 35, F. & A.M., and Mansfield Lodge, No. 19, I.O.O.F.  He was also a member of other orders, always faithful, energetic and enthusiastic  In 1850 Mr. McCoy was one of a party to make the trip to California, going by the way of Panama and a year later returned through the city of Mexico and New Orleans.  Since 1856 he had been a member of the Mansfield Cemetery Association, serving as director and secretary and to his energy and executive ability is due the present excellent condition of the sacred place, which must now entomb the mortal remains of a man remarkable in many things, honest in all and unanimously beloved.  He werved five terms as a member of the city council and as city clerk, when again he did the city excellent service.  In 1852 he was elected Recorder of Richland County, which office he held for two terms.  In 1860 by appointment, he served as clerk of the court of Common Pleas of this county.  About this time, or later, he was appointed superintendent of the city water works and almost continuously since that time until his death he was identified with its management.  In 1878 he was elected to the office of Probate Judge of this county and continued in that office for six years.  In this office, Mr. McCoy displayed a wonderful executive ability and adapted himself with apparent ease to the trying legal questions arising.  It has been a matter of current history that his administration of that office was successful to a very marked degree.  His candor and rugged honesty were strongly defined elements in his career in this office.  He was also a member of the Richland Mutual Insurance Co. and for many years its treasurer.  The deceased was taken ill on Monday, August 22nd., with dysentery, and from the nature of the disease, within a few days the sufferer was very low and his demise was then expected daily.  The Judge's strong constitution and great vitality was wonderful, as will be evidenced by the fact that he lived about eight weeks after hope had vanished.  At 5 o'clock this morning he lost consciousness and did not regain his senses up to the time of his death, which peacefully occurred five minutes before 1 o'clock this afternoon.  The deceased leaves a wife and six children to mourn their loss, as follows:  Alfred, of Brooklyn, N.Y., Mrs. Mary Custer, Ira, Watson and Arwin and Miss Maud, all of this city.  The sympathy of the entire community goes out to them in their said bereavement.  The funeral arrangements had not been completed this afternoon and the announcement will be made later.  The obsequies will be under the auspices of Mansfield Lodge, No. 19, I.O.O.F., as the deceased requested some time ago.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  29 October 1892]

McCreary, Charles -- The Reno (Nevada) Gazette, of Sept. 25th., contains the following: "The Sacramento Bee of yesterday contains the following account of the death of one of Sacramento's noblest citizens: This city has lost one of its best citizens in the death of Charles McCreary, which occurred Saturday evening at his residence, Tenth and I Streets. The sad announcement was received as a shock by the community, the larger portion of which was unaware of Mr. McCreary's illness. Only a few knew that he had been operated upon for a cancer, and that the chances were all against his recovery. Fewer still knew that he had long been a sufferer from this cancerous growth, and that death would soon have been the outcome, even though the heroic measure of a surgical operation had not been taken. There are few men in private or commercial life whose character could stand the test like that of Charles McCreary. He was a thoroughly good citizen in every respect. In all his dealings he was upright and fair. In his relation with those who knew him he was always a courtly, considerate, generous gentleman. The city can ill spare men of the stamp of Charles McCreary. Mr. McCreary was born in Ohio fifty-nine years ago. He came to the state in 1850. His father, the late W.P. McCreary, engaged in the flouring business in this city in 1852. During the four years following Charles McCreary and his brother Byron conducted a farm in Yolo County, but they returned to this city to enter the milling business with their father. They succeeded the latter upon his death and the mill became one of the best properties of its kind in the state. In 1865 Charles McCreary was married to a daughter of Judge Robert Clark. His wife and two sons, Robert and Harry, survive him." Mr. McCreary lived in Mansfield many years ago and will be remembered by our older citizens. -- [Richland Shield & Banner: 20 October 1894, Vol. LXXVII, No. 23]

Mrs. McCrory had been an invalid and a sufferer since the latter part of 1885. Her malady at first baffled the diagnoses of the physicians and its true nature was discovered only when an abscess near the spine manifested itself. The disease affected the sciatic nerve and the sufferer endured excruciating agony. She was taken to California one winter; another winter was spent in the south; during the six years nine operations were performed by the best surgeons, but it all availed nothing. The deceased was 33 years of age Jan. 24. She was the daughter of Gen. Brinkerhoff, of Mansfield, O., her maiden name being Mary Brinkerhoff. She was married to Col. Wm. McCrory at her parent's home in Mansfield, June 8, 1881. Mrs. McCrory was an exceptionally bright woman, very well read, witty and a conscientious Christian. A friend said of her last night: "Every day of her life was a sermon." At her home in Mansfield she was identified with the Congregational church, but upon removing to this city she joined Westminster church. Since June, 1890, she had been in Minneapolis practically a helpless invalid, and for the last four years of her illness she was attended by her sister, Miss Addie Brinkerhoff. The devotion of Miss Brinkerhoff to her sister was strong and constant, and her loving service did much to prolong the life which was so dear to the rest of the family. Mrs. McCrory had no children of her own, but she was loved as a mother by the daughter of a former wife." [Richland Shield & Banner: 09 April 1892]

McCrory, Samuel -- Friday.  Samuel McCrory, an influential citizen of Bucyrus, died yesterday after a short illness.  The deceased was a brother of Hon. R.B. McCrory, of this city, and was well known here.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  05 November 1892]

McCrory, William -- Col. Wm. McCrory, of Minneapolis, Minn., who has been very sick at the residence of Gen. R. Brinkerhoff for the past five weeks, died at 10 o'clock last night.  The deceased was born in Union county, O., on July 22d., 1839, consequently was in his 54th. year at the time of his death.  While still young his parents moved to Franklin County and he was sent to Westerville college in that county.  When the civil war broke out Mr. McCrory was attending Oberlin College, but quit his studies in 1862, and raised the 7th. Independent company of sharpshooters, of which he was made 1st. Lieutenant.  After his promotion to the captaincy his company was made the headquarters guard of Gen. Rosecrans.  Afterward it filled the same station in Gen. Sherman's command and as a member of "Old Tecumseh's" staff, with the rank of Colonel the deceased made the march to the sea and was mustered out in St. Louis in 1865.  After the war Col. McCrory settled in Columbus and was largely interested in the construction of railroads, especially in the Hocking Valley.  About 15 years ago he went to Minneapolis, which has since been his home, and built a motor line railroad from that city to Lake Minnetonka, a distance of 20 miles, which he sold several years ago.  He invested the proceeds in Minneapolis and western real estate, to which he has lately given his entire attention.  Last winter and summer he was one of the foremost members of the committee which secured the Republican national convention for Minneapolis and afterward was chairman of the committee on arrangements.  At the grand Republican parade on the Saturday night preceding the November election he was one of the chief marshals.  His horse reared and fell backward upon him, bruising him considerably about the head and spine, from which he sufficiently recovered to come to Mansfield to spend the holidays.  While here he gradually grew worse and five weeks ago took to his bed, death resulting last night from gradual paralysis the result of the above-mentioned accident.  There was probably no man in Minneapolis more widely known than Colonel McCrory, as he was associated with all the various military organizations, such as the G.A.R., Army of the Tennessee, Army of the Cumberland, Loyal Legion, etc.  Several years after the war he married a Miss Garrett, from near Lexington, and one child, Miss Harriett, who survives them, was the result of the marriage.  His first wife having died, the deceased on June 8, 1881, in this city, married Miss Mary Brinkerhoff, daughter of General Brinkerhoff and wife, and she died on Friday, April 1, 1892.  It is a singular coincidence that Colonel McCrory and his second wife both die on Friday at 10 o'clock p.m.  Beside a daughter and a large circle of friends, the deceased leaves two brothers living in Union County, Ohio, and one brother and two sisters living in Kansas.  The funeral will be held from the residence of General Brinkerhoff at 2 o'clock, Monday afternoon, Rev. J.W. Hubbell, D.D., officiating, after which the remains will be placed in a vault in the Mansfield Cemetery.  General Brinkerhoff and wife today received a number of telegrams of condolences on the death of Colonel McCrory from friends at Minneapolis and elsewhere.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  25 February 1893]

McCully, Mary (Simpson) -- On December 15th., 1894, near Crestline, Ohio, there passed from the labors of this life into the joys of the better land, a good woman, born in the old country, the daughter of my old valued friends, Samuel and Catherine Simpson, of Mifflin Township, the eldest daughter of these old friends, thereafter the loved wife of William McCully, who survives her. Mary Simpson was born March 16th., 1819, in the cabin built of round logs by her father, and situated in Mifflin township, when nearly the whole of the county was an unbroken wilderness. Her father and mother had removed the year before her birth, in 1818, from Jefferson County, and, though other daughters and sons in time came to make the complement of an old-fashioned family, the eldest daughter (as it nearly is always the case) soon became the little helper of her mother and the cherished young woman of the settlement. On June 9th., 1840, she was married to William McCully and they in time established their home on a few farm, her dowry, the gift of her father, in Sandusky township, and the growth of the country, the rapid settlement thereof, and the general progress came to aid and supplement the labors and industry of this young couple, and soon the new home was a home of happiness and health and comparative wealth. And a second and third generation of the descendants of my old friends, Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, followed, and have become of the number of excellent people of the county. The children born to Mr. and Mrs. McCully are Samuel Simpson McCully, Mrs. Sarah Jane Lovett, John W. McCully, all married and living near Crestline; Marion McCully, of Newark, Ohio; and Milton McCully, who died in infancy. The deceased was a sister of Prof. John Simpson, of this city. -- [Richland Shield & Banner: 05 January 1895, Vol. LXXVII, No. 34]

McCullough, Catharine -- Died, at the residence of her husband, on East Market Street, this city, Thursday, Oct. 3d., 1878, Mrs. Catharine McCullough, wife of David McCullough, aged 66 years and 5 months.  The subject of the above notice was born in Franklin County, Pa., March 22d., A.D. 1811;  came to Mansfield, O., in the year 1827, and was married to David McCullough by Rev. James Johnson in 1831.  Her husband settled in Mansfield in the year 1822.  She was the mother of 13 children, of whom three have deceased.  And thus, after forty seven years of married life, the partner of his joys and sorrows is suddenly taken away y the stern hand of death.  Her loss will be felt -- not only by the sorrowing husband -- but by her devoted children, who have had her tenderest care and warmest solicitude.  Thus has the sickle again cut down the ripened corn and another of our old citizens has joined the innumerable throng.  The announcement of Mrs. McCullough's death cast  a gloom of sadness over our entire community.  She was universally respected and beloved, and for many years has been a member of the M.E. church of this city.  A true Christian -- meek, kind and true, her family circle seemed to be her paradise, and by her precept and example, left a legacy to her children of far greater value than silver or gold.  Her funeral took place last Sunday at 2 o'clock, services being conducted by the Rev. Searles of the M.E. church, assisted by Dr. Bronson of the Episcopal Church.  Her remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of relatives and sympathizing friends.  and now, dear mother, we bid the a long, last farewell.  We know that thou art at rest in peace.  May our last hour be like thine, that when our sands of life are well nigh run out, and our dissolution draws nigh;  when the cold winds of death comes sighing around us, and its chilly dews begin to glisten upon our foreheads, may we also welcome with joy the summons of the Eternal Judge and among the ransomed of the earth receive the joyful welcome, 'Well done good and faithful servant;  enter thou into the joys of thy Lord.'  -- R.  [Ohio Liberal:  09 October 1878]

McCune, Lewis H. -- Information was received here by the NEWS this afternoon which indicates that Lewis H. McCune and Will Swaidner, two well-known molders who are employed at the Baxter Stove Works, have been drowned in the lake at Lakeville (OH).  McCune and Swaidner went to Lakeville Tuesday.  They hired a team of horses and a buggy and drove down along the lake for a fishing jaunt.  After they arrived at the lake they hired a small boat from a son of the owner of the lake and paid for its rental for two days, with the understanding that if they kept it longer the boy was to come down to them and collect his money.  The men did not return the boat, so the boy went down to the lake to find them.  He discovered the horse and buggy tied to a tree.  The animals had the appearance of not having been fed for several days.  The men's coats and vests were lying in the buggy.  The lad retuned and told his father, who proceeded to make an investigation.  An examination of the horses revealed the fact that they had not been fed for at least three days.  A can of milk which had been purchased at a farm house before the men started for the lake was found in the buggy.  A searching party was then organized and an effort made to find the men.  The party procured boats and rowed over the lake.  The boat which they used was found about 150 feet from the shore upside down.  A paddle was found underneath the boat crosswise.  The men's soft felt hats were found a short distance away together with the fishing poles which they had used.  An examination of the coats and vests in the buggy showed that they belonged to Lewis McCune and Will Swaidner.  In Swaidner's pocket was found $3.15 and in his coat was found a grocery bill with the name of McFarland & Son upon it.  A telephone message from Loudonville states that there is no doubt that the men are drowned.  Neither McCune nor Swaidner has been seen by anybody since Tuesday.  There is mail lying in the post office at Lakeville for Swaidner.  Up to 3:30 o'clock this afternoon no effort had been made to drag the lake for the bodies.  A party of men from the Baxter Stove Works are making arrangements to go to Lakeville tonight and help in the search for the missing men.  Lewis McCune is a son of the late Henry McCune, is unmarried and resided on Wayne Street with his mother.  William Swaidner lived at 118 Lexington Avenue and was married.  [Mansfield News:  18 August 1899]  *An article about the recovery of Lewis McCune's body appears in the 8/20/1899 issue of the Mansfield News.  *An obituary for Lewis was published in the 8/21/1899 issue of the Mansfield News.

McCune, Robert -- The dispatches announced the death at Sherburne, Minn., of the Rev. Robert McCune, Feb. 17, aged 72 years. Mr. McCune was well known to the people of Richland County, first as a Wesleyan preacher in Washington Twp. and later as one of the publishers of "The Christian Statesman" issued from the office of the Western Branch Book Concern established in this place by the Wesleyan Methodists in 1853. Mr. McCune was originally a Pittsburg printer. He married the daughter of the Rev. Edward Smith, a Wesleyan minister of note, as well as one of the most powerful antislavery lecturers before the public. Before a mob he never quailed. When lecturing upon that subject at Mt. Vernon, O., and egg hurled at him while speaking struck him in the mouth, but as I was told he stopped talking only long enough to unload the egg. Mr. Smith had bought a farm in Morrow County, but the plant of establishing "The Western Branch Book Concern" with "The Christian Statesman" as an organ at Mansfield seemed to promise a field of usefulness and he at once entered upon the work. He rented the brick building upon the west side of South Main, between First and Second street, and Mr. McCune took charge of the mechanical department. While there they issued a temperance novel, written by William Stevens, a Mansfield lawyer, entitled: "The Unjust Judge" or "The Evils of Intemperance on Judges, Lawyers and Politicians, By A Member of the Ohio Bar". It was a satirical drive at our county judge and some of the members of the bar in revenge for their rebuffs and discourtesies from which he had been a sufferer, it was a book of 350 pages and issued Jan. 1, 1854. Mr. Stevens, finding it uphill work in Mansfield, went to Kansas and I understand is no longer living. At that time I owned the Mansfield Herald, and having put in steam presses, Smith & McCune rented the second story of my building, moved in and I did their press work. Mr. Smith soon after died, their work was discontinued and Mr. McCune again entered the clerical field, but as a congregational minister. My impression is that he first had a charge in Huron County. He afterwards preached at Kokomo, Ind. and East Toledo and in Toledo was also engaged in newspaper work with the Blade, remaining there several years. From Toledo he was called to Worthington and Sherburne, two towns in southwestern Minnesota, and was chaplain of the Minnesota house of representatives one session. Mr. McCune was distinguished for his pleasant vein of humor, his sterling common sense and his strict conscientiousness, which ensured him the love and esteem of all who knew him. -- M. Day.

McDermott, George -- A very sad fatality was that which occurred between midnight Saturday night and 1 o'clock Sunday morning at Lucas and resulted in the death of George McDermott, son of Mr. & Mrs. Marcus McDermott, of this city. The exact manner in which the unfortunate man met his death is not known definitely. The dead body was found by Tom Zediker about 2 o'clock Saturday morning lying along the track about 100 years below the depot at Lucas. The body was not badly mangled as it would have been had it been under a train, so it is thought that he must have been struck by the cylinder of the engine or some part of the train and knocked away from the train. His neck and jaw were broken. The accident was reported and help having secured the body was removed to Marks' undertaking establishment. Sunday morning Coroner Baughman and the parents of the young man were informed of the accident. Coroner Baughman, Constable Baxter and Marcus McDermott went to Lucas and viewed the remains. George McDermott, who met with such an untimely death, was 28 years of age and was born in this city. He was unmarried. For about a year he has been living at Lucas and has been in the employ of his brother-in-law, O. Rummel, who has a saw mill. McDermott was around the village Saturday evening and was at various places in the village and sometime about midnight started down the P.F. tracks for the home of his brother-in-law. Near the place where the fatality occurred a box car was standing on a siding next to the main track. Near by are the stock yards. It is supposed that while walking along the track he got too near, or upon the east bound tracks at this point and was struck by P.F. east bound passenger train No. 8, due here at 12:20 a.m. Another theory is that he sat down on the side of the track, and in this way met his death, as he did not see the approaching train. The body was brought to this city Sunday evening at 8 o'clock and was removed to the home of the young man's parents at the corner of Orchard and Daisy Streets. The inquest has been set for this afternoon at Coroner Baughman's office. Funeral services Tuesday at 10 o'clock a.m., conducted by the Rev. Dr. H.L. Wiles. Mr. McDermott was well known here and his friends will be sorry to learn of his death, which occurred in such an unexpected manner, at a time when he was in manly vigor and strength.

All his neighbors and friends (and he had hosts of them), counseled with, and confided in him. He was eminently a peace-maker among his friends, and did it so delicately, that he rarely failed to reconcile, and at the same time maintain the friendship of both parties. Often tendered public office, he never would accept any. He was a self made man, high-toned and dignified in character; of unquestioned integrity; a firm friend; good counselor; open hearted, frank, candid and manly in all his intercourse with his fellow men. << verse omitted >> His funeral, very numerously attended, took place Tuesday last, with Masonic honors of which Order he was a member.

He had been a great sufferer with that dreadful disease, consumption, for about twenty months, and while his death was expected and had been looked for for a long time, it was sudden. Those who attended him through the night thought he rested comparatively easy, and left him in a quiet sleep. In a short time after their arrival home, were startled by the news of his death. He had recently united with the Presbyterian church, and it is expected that his pastor, the Rev. W.W. Anderson, will upon his return home, write a more extended obituary, and have it published in some organ of that church, of which denomination the family and deceased have many relatives and friends in different parts of the country.

McFall, Cora Bell — Cora Bell McFall, only daughter of Ephraim and Catharine G. McFall, was born March 2d., 1857, and died December 6th., 1872. Nearly three weeks before her decease, Cora was attacked with Typhoid Fever. After the fever had subsided, and hopes of her recovery been revived, symptoms of Typhoid Pneumonia appeared. On Wednesday night, (Dec. 4) she grew much worse, and gradually sank until Friday morning about 3 o’clock when she passed away. Cora was a sweet, amiable and guileless girl, and was devotedly loved by her parents. Her mother is inconsolable in her death. But Cora has gone to be with angels — “She is not, for God has taken her.” Months ago she made profession of Christian faith, and connected herself with the M.E. Church of this city. In her last hours she gave assurances of Christ’s presence and love, and so she fell asleep in Jesus. <<scripture omitted>> [Richland Shield & Banner: 14 December 1872]

McFall, Ephraim -- Shortly before the midnight bell noted the advent of this Sabbath day the death summons came to Ephraim McFall, who passed away at 11:30 o'clock last night. It is given to fiew men to pass the allotted three score years and ten and still fewer spend in the place of their nativity their entire life, as did he, the announcement of whose death will be a sad surprise to all citizens this morning. A man of unusual vitality and good health, apparently many years younger than he really was. Ephraim McFall has been as an adult, for over a generation and a half, a familiar figure in Mansfield and was know nto all residents, as he was nearly always to be seen in the vicinity of his building at the corner of Main and Third, near which locality he first saw the light of day. Mr. McFall's illness was of very short duration. He had been up and about the house nearly every day until Saturday, when it was thought best for him to remain abed. Death as the natural result of the breaking down of the physical structure in old age. The deceased was born April 26, 1825. He was the son of Hugh McFall, and secured his education in the public schools of Mansfield. After leaving school Mr. McFall entered into business with his father, who kept a general store in the building known as the McFall corner. Later he was engaged for a period of 15 years in jobbing business in which he was the pioneer. Afterward Mr. McFall engaged in the study of and practice in veterinary surgery. For a time he was engaged in buying horses and shipping them to New York. Ephraim McFall was married in January, 1856, to Miss Kate Thomas, daughter of John R. Thomas, who has been dead a number of years. One son, Hugh McFall, survives. Gaylord McFall, a brother and Mrs. P.A. Gordon, of Milan, O., a sister of the deceased, now in California, are the other immediate living relatives. [Semi-Weekly News: 16 November 1897, Vol. 13, No. 92]

McFall, Gaylord -- Gaylord McFall, an uncle of Hugh McFall, and a former resident of Mansfield, died at Dingman's Ferry, Pa. early Saturday morning, according to a dispatch received here. Gaylord McFall was born in this city, Feb. 22, 1829, and was therefore more than 69 years of age. Mr. and Mrs. McFall had two children, but both are dead and only the wife survives the deceased. Gaylord McFall lived in New York City, but on account of ill health he has been in the habit of spending his summers in the mountains of Pennsylvania at Dingman's Ferry. The deceased organized a military company in Mansfield during the civil war and served his country, returning home with the rank of major. After leaving Mansfield, Gaylord McFall resided for a time at Louisville, Ky., and later went from Louisville to New York. He was engaged in manufacturing and owned a large cigar factory at Key West. He was also identified with other manufacturing concerns. He had a big interest in the Brush Electric Light Company, of New York, and was secretary of the company for some time. There is but one immediate relative, a sister, Mrs. Gordon, who resides at Milan. The remains will arrive here for burial Monday morning and it is expected that the funeral will take place from the depot immediately, although this arrangement may be changed by telegraph today. -- [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News: 09 August 1898, Vol. 14, No. 66 - from Sunday's News]

McFarland, Charles H. -- A tragic affair occurred on Park Avenue East about 5:30 o'clock last evening. Charles H. McFarland, a laboring man, met death as the result of his own rash act. Despondency over lack of work and the serious illness of his wife, together with his own temporary physical disability on account of an accident, were undoubtedly the causes which led to his continued dissipation and subsequently to the results which followed. For some time Mrs. McFarland has been quite ill at her home, 49 Grant Street -- so ill in fact that at times her life was despaired of. Mr. McFarland, ordinarily kind, it is said, became more and more despondent and gradually drank more deeply. He had a sore foot and last Thursday he was kicked on the leg by his horse. Last Friday he came home more intoxicated than usual and his wife seeing his conditions, left her bed in the evening and went to the home of a neighbor, whom she told of her troubles. The neighbor had a cab called and Mrs. McFarland and her two children, aged 5 and 3 years respectively, were taken to the home of Mrs. McFarland's mother, Mrs. Mary A. Miller, at 149 Park Avenue East, where they have been since that time. It is probable that while under the influence of liquor mistreated his wife and that caused her to leave him. Dr. Stewart was called to the home to attend Mrs. McFarland, who was worse after leaving home. Yesterday McFarland drove past the home of his mother-in-law in his buggy but did not disturb them. Shortly before 5:30 o'clock last evening he had apparently planned to end his life. He drove up in front of the house of Mrs. Miller, alighted from the buggy and tied the horse, after which he got into the buggy again and shot himself above and slightly to the front of the right ear. Death resulted almost instantly. The scene of the tragic affair was soon thronged by people in the neighborhood who had heard the shot and came running to see what was the matter. Willing hands carried the man into Mrs. Miller's house, where all was at once confusion. It was thought that there might be a hope of saving his life and Dr. Stewart was called. Coroner Baughman, who lives a short distance from the scene of the shooting, was also summoned, but the man was dead and likely had been almost from the moment that the bullet entered his head. In his buggy were some groceries, and on his person, among other things, an empty flask. The revolver which he used in the commission of the deed was a 32 caliber. The coroner probed for the bullet and located it at the base of the skull on the opposite side of his head. The bullet took a downward course, and the unfortunate man must have had the butt of the weapon elevated slightly. The police were informed of the affair and were also present at the scene shortly after it occurred. Mrs. McFarland was completely prostrated, and was in a precarious condition last evening. Charles McFarland was a laborer and was born in Cuyahoga County in 1859. He leaves a wife and tow children. Arrangements for the funeral have not as yet been made. The inquest will be held Monday at 10 o'clock. He had $1,000 insurance on his life, in a California company, and had paid one premium on it and had also given his note for a payment. It is not improbable that the despondency which hung over him and which was made more gloomy by his dissipation and the long continued sickness of his wife, caused McFarland to brood over his troubles until temporary insanity resulted. It is stated that yesterday afternoon on Spring Mill Street, McFarland called a friend to his buggy and offered him a drink, saying as he did so that he was going to commit suicide soon. He also drew out his revolver and flourished it. The man mentioned the matter to several members of the police force and they were searching for him to prevent him from consummating the deed he threatened to do, when the report came in that he had committed suicide, thus fulfilling his threat.

McFarland, George -- George McFarland, one of the oldest residents of Richland County, died at his home near Washington village at 6 o'clock last night.

In the spring of 1829 he rode horseback from there to this county and remained here until the fall of the same year, when he returned to his home in Maryland. In the following spring he again came to Richland Co. and on May 12th., 1832 was married to Miss Mary Schlosser, and settled on a farm three miles east of the city, where he lived until about ten years ago, when he removed to the neighborhood of Washington village, where he died.

McFarland, Rosina -- Mrs. Rosina McFarland, wife of John W. McFarland, of Monroe township, died at her home Sunday at 9 o'clock a.m., of cancer, from which she had suffered very severely, but uncomplainingly for several months. Mrs. McFarland's maiden name was Applegate. She was born in this county, Aug. 1, 1848, being aged at her death 53 years, 7 months and 1 day. She was married to John W. McFarland Jan. 10, 1867. To them were born six children, four sons: O. H., E. E., W. H. and A. M., and two daughters, Mary E. and Mrs. Rose A. Carson. Three of these children now reside on the old homestead, one and a half miles west of Lucas. Two live in the vicinity, while one, W. H., resides near Stuart, Iowa. The latter came to his old home two weeks ago and was almost constantly at the bedside of his mother up to Saturday last, when he received word from his home that his wife was very ill, then, feeling that it was his duty to be with his sick wife, he bid his mother goodbye and with a sad heart returned to his home in the west. Mrs. Carson, who has resided in Pittsburg for about a year, recently moved with her husband and child back to her former home. Mother McFarland joined the Lutheran church at Mr. Zion when about 12 years old. After her marriage she moved with her husband to the vicinity of Washington where they soon after united with the Congregational church at that place. In February 1883, they were two of the eight members who organized the Congregational church at Lucas, in which church she has ever since been an earnest and faithful member and for a number of years a deaconess. Her name is also on the "roll of honor" of the Congregational Sunday school in Lucas. Kindness was one of her marked characteristics. She was full of the faith and hope of the Christian, which enabled her to bear her long and severe illness without a murmur and with a Christian fortitude seldom if ever excelled. She remained conscious to the last, giving the best of advice to her family and neighbors. She always proved by her conduct and conversation that she was in possession of that priceless hope which enabled her to rejoice with that "joy that is unspeakable" and full of glory only a few hours before she died, on being told by one of her sons that it was Sunday morning, she replied, "Oh, I am so glad that I can go to my Savior on the blessed Sabbath. By her death the husband sustains the loss of a kind and devoted wife, the children an affectionate and loving mother, the church a faithful and consistent member and the people for miles around a true friend and one who was a neighbor in the highest and broadest sense of the word. Funeral services at her late home Wednesday, March 5, at 10 o'clock. Burial in the I. O. O. F. cemetery, near Lucas. Services conducted by the Rev. R. H. Edmonds, of Mansfield, and Rev. P. L.

McKee, O.H. -- Lucas .... C.L. McKee has lately received the sad news of the death of his brother, O.H. McKee, a well-known mining lawyer of San Francisco, Cal., and who left this, his native village, at the breaking out of the war, being but 16 years of age at that time. He served in the army in the 4th.

McKee, a well-known mining lawyer of this city, died at his residence, No. 1318 Ellis street in this city, last Wednesday evening, after a severe and painful illness at the early age of 30 years. He was a member of the Grand Army of the Republic, having entered the army at the early ate of 16 years and serving throughout the war. He left a will containing the very sensible provision "Having always maintained that costly coffins, numerous carriages and many other items of mere display at funerals are too often a mere waste of the means necessary for the support of the members of the deceased, I hereby positively direct and insist that my funeral shall be as plain as possible, and that the expense thereof shall be very moderate, and I further positively direct and insist that no member of my family shall wear mourning on account of my death." A widow and two children and a host of friends are left to mourn the death of Mr. McKee." -- [Ohio Liberal: 02 July 1884, Vol. 12, No. 12]

McKee, Sarah -- Mrs. Sarah McKee, wife of E.R. McKee, suicided last evening at the home of her husband, three miles south of the city of Bellville road, by throwing herself into a well while other members of the family were at supper. She had been in the well probably fifteen minutes before found. The skull was fractured, which probably produced death instantly. The deceased had been afflicted with nervous prostration for nine months and for the past four months was demented. She had made attempts on her life several times before, but was prevented from doing herself injury by members of the family, who kept a close watch of her movements. Her husband was associated with James Dickson in the banking business here several years ago, and worrying over the loss of money in that institution is supposed to be the original cause of her illness. Mrs. McKee was born at Wheeling, W. Va., in 1815, and was therefore 74 years of age. She was married in 1837 and had resided in Richland County for 47 years. The funeral will take place tomorrow from her late home, at 1 p.m., her pastor, Rev. Ballentine, of the Seceder Church, officiating.

McLaughlin, John -- Daily Shield, April 7.  Sudden and awful death overtook John McLaughlin, a P.F. section hand at 9:30 o'clock this morning.  In company with the other members of Foreman Arnold's gang McLaughlin went to work this morning on the track, a short distance south of Toledo Junction, six miles north of the city.  At that point the main line lay double-tracked, designated respectively as the north and south tracks, the latter describing a sharp bend to the west.  The men were engaged upon the north track when the first section of west bound fright No. 75 approached and they were obliged to vacate.  McLaughlin stepped upon the south track and the smoke of the engine of No. 75 filled the cut so that it was difficult to see any distance.  Suddenly the first section of east-bound freight No. 72 was observed at the bend running at a high rate of speed.  The doomed man saw the engine, but before he could get out of reach he was caught and thrown a considerable distance against a bank, death being instantaneous.  No. 72 was stopped and the remains brought to this city and placed in the union depot.  Coroner Maglott was notified and upon examination of the body, found a number of frightful injuries.  Both legs were broken above the knees and also the back.  There was a fracture of the left side of the skull in addition to other injuries.  The deceased, who is about 28 years of age, has a wife and two children and resides on North Diamond near Johns Street.  The wife was at once notified of the sad accident.  Mr. McLaughlin was a brother-in-law of Fireman Doss Bell and came from the country, about five and a half miles south of this city, where his parents reside.  Coroner Maglott stated that he would hold no inquest.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  08 April 1893]

McMahon, Mary -- A dreadful coal oil calamity occurred early Monday morning.  People in the vicinity of the Masonic Hall were startled by the screams of a woman.  On rushing upstairs a most pitiful sight presented itself.  A woman was seen enveloped in a sheet of flame, and writhing in agony.  An old Irish woman, well known about town as Mary McMahon, and the sister-in-law of Martin Daugherty, while attempting to kindle a fire in a stove in the Masonic banquet rooms, used coal oil, and, as usual, the often-repeated scene was enacted.  The oil in the stove exploded, setting her clothes on fire, and burning her about the head and arms in a terrible manner.  The woman was immediately removed to Dr. McCullough's drug store, where she received medical attention.  We called on Dr. Keyes and learned from him that the woman is in a very precarious condition, and may not recover.  Her hair was burned off, her hands and arms burned until they bled, and her head and neck were also burned.  It is thought she inhaled some of the flames and burned her lungs, and in that case there is little hope of her recovering.  She was removed to Martin Daugherty's, where she now lies.  How often will people have to be told never to kindle a fire with such explosives!  Let this be another warning to the already long list.  [Ohio Liberal:  28 May 1879]

McMahon, Ross -- Ross McMahon, aged 75 and one of Shelby's most favorably known citizens, met a sad death on Tuesday of last week. He started for Crestline on horseback and was riding a very wild animal which throwed [sic.] him resulting as above stated. -- [Worthington Enterprise (Butler, Richland, Ohio): 08 May 1890, Vol. II, No. 23]

McMahon, Ross -- Friday. Ross McMahon, one of Shelby's oldest and most favorably known citizens, met with a terrible death on Tuesday. He started to Crestline on horseback, riding a very wild animal. About one hour after his departure, some persons living in Shelby saw the horse returning riderless. They captured the animal and suspecting that all was not as it should be, began a search for Mr. McMahon. They found him dead in the road opposite the German Lutheran Church of Shelby with his head badly bruised and skull fractured. The body was taken home and was buried this morning at 10 o'clock. It is presumed that the horse threw him off and then kicked him. The deceased was aged about 75 years. [Richland Shield & Banner: 10 May 1890, Vol. LXXII, No. 51]

McMann, John -- Mr. John McMann, long a respectable citizen of this city, died of typhoid fever, on the 4th. inst. [Shelby Chronicle: 28 November 1867, Vol. 1, No. 39]

McMann, John -- Died, at his residence in Mansfield, on the 4th. inst., after a short illness, John McMann, Esq., aged 65 years. The deceased was a native of Newcastle County, Delaware, from which State he emigrated to Ohio, and settled in Richland Co., O., where he continued to reside up to the time of his death. The writer of this became acquainted with him soon after he came to this county, now nearly or quite forty years later, the friendship then formed continued without through all the varied scenes of after life. He was a man of more than ordinary business capacity; filled several offices of minor importance with singular fidelity to the public interest and much credit to himself; he was frequently entrusted by the business men of Mansfield with the collection of large amounts of money and always discharged the trust to the entire satisfaction of his employers; no man ever lost a cent by the carelessness, incapacity or dishonesty of John McMann; he was strictly honest, prompt and exact in his business relations with all; his word was the synonym of truth. His children, two sons and a daughter, were with him in his last moments, which was a season of great consolation to him. They have indeed lost an earthly friend, whose place cannot be filled. But enough, he is gone, his body is wrapped in the shroud of that mysterious sleep, called death, the realities of which await us all.

McMeekin, nee Retta Kinton, died Monday about 4 p.m., at the home of her parents Mr. and Mrs. William Kinton, south of Bunker Hill. The funeral took place Wednesday, conducted by Rev. Gould of Mansfield, at 12:30, from the home of her parents and the remains were laid to rest in the Bunker Hill cemetery. Deceased leaves a husband and three children, a sorrowing father and mother, three brothers and one sister, who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their dark hour of sorrow. The funeral was attended by a large assembly of friends who paid the last tribute of respect to the memory of the deceased. She will be missed not only in the home circle but among her friends and acquaintances. Retta Kinton was born July 4, 1872 in Worthington Township. With the exception of a few years after her marriage she lived near Mansfield. She was married to Smith T. McMeeken, Oct. 20, 1895. -- [Bellville Messenger: 28 March 1902, Vol. X, No. 13]

McMerrell, L.R. -- L.R. McMerrell has suicided. He took his own life rather than suffer the penalties of his peculations. When the grand jury was brought into court yesterday morning four sub rosa indictments were reported. Two of these were against L.R. McMerrell, a traveling man of this city, charging him with embezzling an aggregate of $221 from his employers, Richardson & Mosey, proprietors of the Richardson Bottling Works. McMerrell has for some time been traveling for the Netscher Bottling Works, and it was expected that he would arrive home last night. Accordingly Sheriff Guthrie, Prosecutor Douglass and Officer Hayes repaired to the union depot to arrest him, but he failed to appear. The officers frequently visited McMerrell's home on West Bloom Street, where they were assured that their man had not returned to the city. This forenoon Prosecutor Douglass became satisfied that McMerrell had been informed of the indictments and he prepared to send Sheriff Guthrie to Shreve (McMerrell's old home) in the hope of finding him there. As a matter of precaution, however, he first telegraphed L.R. Troutman, president of the Shreve bank, asking him if the traveling man had been in the village. At noon Mr. Douglass received the following explanatory telegram from Mr. Troutman: "L.R. McMerrell was found dead in bed at this place this morning." The dead man leaves a wife and two children living on West Bloom Street, to whom his sudden demise will prove a severe blow. The story of McMerrell's crime is quite lengthy. In his embezzlement he displayed a superior ability. About a year ago he removed from Shreve to this city and secured the position of traveling salesman for the Richardson Bottling Works. McMerrell had previously represented the Netscher Bottling Works and was well qualified in every way for the position. For a time he proved to be an excellent salesman. About three months ago, however, the firm began to notice that McMerrell's accounts were not straight and he reported no orders one week. This aroused the suspicions of the proprietors and they proceeded to make an investigation. They found that McMerrell had failed to account for $150. When confronted with proof of his guilt McMerrell weakened and gave the firm security for the amount, after which he was discharged. Later another investigation was made and it was found that the dishonest salesman had defrauded his employers out of about $140 more. This he also made good. A member of the company then took the road to sell goods, when he found that, while McMerrell was traveling on the money of the Richardson Bottling Works, he had been selling the goods of a rival concern. It was also found that the salesman had collected every cent due the firm and in this manner had secured $221, for the embezzlement of which he was indicted. McMerrell was given an opportunity to settle, but his brother-in-law at Shreve, who had helped him out of his former trouble, refused to have anything to do with him. It is not known what route McMerrell selected in taking passage to the beyond, but it is supposed that he called laudanum or morphine to his assistance. S.L. Nash received a letter from McMerrell, under date of "Shreve, March 16th." in which he said that he was dying as he wrote the letter. Mr. Nash went to Shreve today to investigate the suicide. No arrangements have yet been made for the funeral, but the remains will probably be interred at Shreve. McMerrell also had dealings with the Netscher Bottling Works, J.J. Maguire and Terrence Donohoe, all of whom lost money on him. -- [Richland Shield & Banner: 24 March 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 45]

McMillen, A.D. -- A.D. McMillen, aged 78, an old man with quite a singular history, died at the Park Hotel shortly after midnight this morning.  The deceased arrived in this city on Tuesday without any money and told Landlord Noggle that he had walked all the way from one of the frontier counties in Nebraska and was on his way to a son's, who lived in Berlin Heights, Erie County, this state.  Mr. Noggle kindly offered him lodging for the night.  Wednesday morning the clerk went to call the old gentleman for an early breakfast, as he had requested, when the traveler was found to be very sick and partially unconscious.  Dr. Francis was called and administered restoratives.  Last night the old gentleman became much worse and although Drs. Francis and Maglott made him a number of visits he died at the hour stated above.  His ailment was, no doubt, paralysis of the heart, and old age, combined as the patient said he had been suffering from heart disease for a number of years.  Charles Schroer, the undertaker, has charge of the remains and unless something is heard from his son, Wm. McMillen today, the hotel clerk, having telegraphed him, the remains will be interred here.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  19 November 1892]

McMillen, A.D. -- Sunday.  The remains of A.D.

McMillen, Alexander -- Monday.  At 4 o'clock last evening the remains of Alex. McMillen, the insane person who suicided at the jail Saturday evening, were taken to the residence of the deceased's sister, Mrs. Jos. Haverfield, in Weller Township, from which place the funeral was held this afternoon.   [Richland Shield & Banner:  28 May 1892]

McMillen, Alexander -- Suicided At Last.  About 8:30 last night Alexander McMillen, confined in the county jail, awaiting admission to the Toledo Asylum, succeeded in committing suicide after making nearly a dozen attempts.  The story of the suicide is best told by Andrew Jacobs, a prisoner who has been caring for McMillen during the time he was in the jail.  Jacobs says that on last Tuesday night about midnight he heard a noise in McMillen's cell and investigated and found him standing on the foot of his cot, his suspenders tied to the bars of his cell and attempting to tie the other end around his throat.  Jacobs took charge of the suspenders and watched McMillen that night and every night and day since.  In consequence Jacobs last night slept soundly the first night for five days.  Jacobs says that several times during the past week McMillen attempted to hang himself and repeatedly said he would yet succeed in the attempt.  Late yesterday afternoon he tried it again, taking a heavy piece of muslin, which he drew tightly around his neck and tried to tie to the bars.  He was caught in the act by Jacobs, who took the muslin away from him.  About 8 o'clock last evening McMillen was talking with Jacobs and finally left him, walking into another prisoner's cell which was open and, at the time, unoccupied.  Half an hour later Jacobs found him hanging to the bars, his tongue protruding and black.  Being unable to extricate him the prisoner called Sheriff Tressel, who cut the cloth, with which McMillen had ended his life.  The pulse still beating feebly, the Sheriff telephoned for a physician and attempted to resuscitate the suicide, but before the doctor arrived the man was dead.  The suicide had torn a couple of strips off a heavy woolen blanket and made a rope, which he passed around his neck twice.  Sheriff Tressel last night telephoned Infirmary Superintendent Palmer of McMillen's suicide and the latter notified the deceased's sister, Mrs. Jos. Haverfield, who lives in the neighborhood of the Infirmary.  Coroner Maglott will hold an inquest on the remains this morning, after which they will be prepared for burial.  No arrangements for the funeral have yet been made.   [Richland Shield & Banner:  28 May 1892]

McMillen, Milton -- Died, in Lexington, Richland County, Ohio, on the 19th. day of June, 1876, Rev. Milton McMillen, calmly and peacefully passed from his labors in the ministry, to his rewards on high.  This faithful and beloved man of God, came to the Presbyterian Church in Lexington, about six months ago, and during his short stay, by his earnestness and faithfulness in the Master's cause and his bold and decided stand for order and sobriety, his Christian and gentlemanly courtesy to all, endeared himself to all who became acquainted with him and won to himself many an ardent friend, in whose memories shall linger, "until the last throbbing breath" fond recollections of our departed pastor, and whilst we bow in humble submission to this mysterious providence, yet sovereign and holy will of God, our fond hopes have been disappointed, our Church left under the shadow of a great cloud, yet would we say to our aching hearts, "be still".  The Lord shall be exalted in the earth.  The deceased was stricken down by typhoid fever in the midst of a useful life, at a middle age, when we would have said, the Church could not spare him -- we would have plead his family.  Oh how they need his sympathy, his teaching and his assistance;  but man's ways are not God's.  <<poetry omitted>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  01 July 1876]

His remains were brought to Shelby for interment. Funeral services by Prof. J.S. Lowe of Geneva, Ohio, held on Sabbath at the Christian Church, of which he had been an active member. Mr. McMillin for a number of years was a citizen of Shelby. He was ever prompt in the discharge of every duty, but of such a retiring disposition in regard to public duties, that from his own choice, his capacity for a more extended usefulness were never allowed to be tested. His sincerity, goodness and real worth, were therefore only fully known to such as knew him best. -- [SHELBY INDEPENDENT NEWS: 28 September 1871, Vol. 3, No. 48]

McMonies, Mrs. James -- Died, at Albert Lea, Minnesota, on Friday morning, July 13th., 1876, Mrs. Jas. McMonies, of Toledo, Ohio.  Mrs. McMonies, in company with her sister, Mrs. W.B. Niman, of this city, had gone to Minnesota to visit her father and two brothers, who reside there.  They had spent a few days with their father at Chandas City, and on Thursday evening went over to their brother's at Albert Lea.  Friday morning they went to the Lake, a short distance from his house to bathe.  The water being very shallow no danger was anticipated.  Mrs. McManus [sic] waded out a few feet from her sister, remarking "this is a lovely place, we will come here every day while we stay," but, alas! the folly of human anticipations.  In a moment her feet struck the quick-sand in a deep spring.  Her sister seeing her in danger went to her rescue, barely escaped sharing the same fate.  She thre her skirt to her hoping she might reach it, but too late -- death had done its work.  Cries for help soon brought assistance, but of no avail.  Her little boy of five years, and her sister, could only look on helpless and see her drown.  Saturday morning her remains, accompanied by her brother and sister, were brought to her husband at Toledo, from there taken to Bellevue, Ohio, (her former home) for interment.  This was the sad conclusion of a long anticipated visit to a brother she had not seen in ten years.  Truly "the ways of Providence are past finding out,"  On Saturday evening, while the brother was on his way to LaCrosse with his sister's remains, his house was burned to the ground.  Mr. Sloem has the universal sympathy of the citizens of Albert Lea in his afflictions.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  29 July 1876]

The cause of her death was consumption and for more than a week her life had hung in the balance and she sank and rallied at times until at last the final summons came and she passed away. Miss McNeill was the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. John McNeill and was born in October, 1870, on Catawba Island. She has one brother, Edward McNeill, of Oak Harbor, and two sisters, Mrs. Alice Bismut and Miss Alta McNeill, both of Oak Harbor. For some years she has resided with her uncle and aunt, Mr. & Mrs. E.A. Leech, at the Tremont House and she had a host of warm friends who will be sorry to hear of her early death. Funeral services at the Tremont House conducted by the Rev. F.B. Foster, of the United Presbyterian church, Monday afternoon, at 2 o'clock.

McNeilly, ---- -- As Erie passenger train No. 8 was entering Marion last night at about 10 o'clock, one of its passengers, Mr. McNeilly, of Galion, took suddenly sick and died. He was taken from the car at Marion in order that a Coroner's inquest could be held. Mr. McNeilly is the father of Mrs. Thos. Wright, of this city, and was about sixty years old at the time of his death. His home is at Galion, but he had been at St. Paul, Minn., and was en route home. The deceased had been troubled with kidney disease and that ailment was probably the cause of his sudden demise. Mr. McNeilly leaves a wife in Galion and several married children living in different parts of the United States.  [Richland Shield & Banner: 27 April 1889, Vol. LXXI, No. 49]

McNulty, Mrs. William -- We are pained to record the death of Mrs. McNulty, wife of William McNulty, Esq., of this place. She committed suicide on last Monday morning by severing the jugular vein. For more than a year she had been insane and had been taken to the Insane Retreat in Cincinnati, under care of Dr. Meade, and to the Asylum at Columbus, for treatment, but no permanent benefit was received, and she was brought home. She several times expressed fears that she would destroy herself, and requested her friends to keep watch upon her. This they did, and when her paroxysms were worse, locked in her room, with every means of self-destruction removed. Her husband had been in California for some years, but on learning of her malady he arranged his business as speedily as possible and returned home just about three weeks ago. Since his return he has done everything in his power to administer to her comfort and happiness. Insanity appears to be hereditary in the family, as one of her sisters has destroyed herself in the same manner. Misfortunes seem to fall upon the head of Mr. McNulty thick and fast. Calamities by fire and flood descended upon him with their crushing weight, and now this greatest grief of all is added to fill his cup of bitterness. But there is an overruling Providence who hath ordered these things for good and with a desire to know His will we should bow with resignation to His mandates.  [PLYMOUTH ADVERTISER: 21 January 1854, Vol. 1, No. 14 as re-printed from the MANSFIELD HERALD]

McPheren, John -- Washington. John McPheren was born in Franklin County, September 20, 1821. He was married to Miss Rosanna Snyder, May 5, 1846, and they have therefore lived together forty-five years, nine months and nine days. He departed this life February 14, 1892, aged seventy years, four months, twenty-four days. The deceased with his family moved to Richland County in the spring of 1868 where he has since resided. He leaves a wife and eight children, as follows: Samuel, of Pennsylvania, John J., Thomas and Jacob L., of this vicinity, Mrs. Harriet Ridenour, of Pennsylvania, Mrs. Mary Bowden, of Mansfield, Mrs. Anna Purdy, of this vicinity, and Mrs. Luemma Travis of Illinois. Mr. McPheren followed blacksmithing and that of stock-spaying during his life-time and was widely known throughout Richland County and had probably traveled more miles by team during his twenty-four years of residence here than any man in the county. It can be said of him that he was a man that always attended to his own business and allowed others to do the same and it is not known that he had an enemy in the county, but was a friend to all alike. Mrs. Travis was telegraphed for and arrived last Friday and was at the bedside of her father. Samuel was notified by telegrams, but did not reach here until Tuesday afternoon, when the funeral was on the way to the cemetery.
