Mickey, Ezra W. -- Mr. Ezra W. Mickey died on Saturday last. A more extended notice will appear next week. [Shelby Independent News: 20 March 1873, Vol. 5, No. 21]

Mickey, Ezra W. -- As briefly announced last week, Ezra W. Mickey died on Saturday, March 15th., 1873, aged 25 years, 4 months and 15 days. He had been lingering for a long time with a pulmonary complaint making it evident to himself and friends, that in all human probability his days on earth would be few. He was however fully prepared for the change, and those who mourn his loss know that he is lost on earth as a star is lost, only to shine in a brighter world. He was one of our young business men, always so full of interest to community, who having chosen a companion, had settled down in life, like many others, expecting to become one our permanent business men. With bright prospects before them, and buoyant hopes within, they commenced the journey of life together, their happiness only measured by their capacity for its enjoyment, when the Providential hand was seen slowly removing the cup from their lips, and they compelled to taste the bitterness of another, filled with the disappointment of all earthly hopes. But such is life! There is no discharge in this war. All must meet with a similar fate, and sooner or later, death comes to all. He who doeth all things well, hath ordered it thus; and it becomes us, hard as it may seem, to submit with Christian resignation. On Monday, March 17, his remains were followed to their final resting place in Oakland Cemetery, by a large number of sympathizing friends and relatives.

In accordance with the request of the deceased, her remains were taken to Henderson County, Ill., her former place of residence for interment. [Shelby Independent News: 23 May 1872, Vol. 4, No. 30]

Mickey, Rebecca Cummins -- Mrs. Rebecca C. Mickey, wife of Mr. Thomas Mickey, died on Friday last at about noon. Her death was not unexpected, she having been a great sufferer for over a year last past; hence the intelligence of her death came rather as a relief than otherwise to the many sympathizing friends, who for a long time have been deeply moved, knowing that one so highly esteemed was doomed to suffer so much. The fact that she had ministered so long, so frequently and so well, at the bedside of so many others, and by her very presence alleviated the sufferings of others; and that she was now compelled to suffer so much; and that nothing could be done by them to ease her own afflictions, was in itself a source of deep regret to many. They knew there was no reasonable hope for her recovery, and hence they felt relieved to know, that she had finally endured it all, and that too so patiently; and to feel that she had exchanged time for an eternity of bliss, where she forever will enjoy the reward for a life of so much usefulness and love to her neighbors and friends, took away much of that poignancy of grief, that would have been felt, had her death been more sudden and unexpected. Mrs. Mickey was a universal favorite with our people. Coming to Shelby in her youth, one of the pioneers, as it were, of the village, she grew to esteem, as the town increased, and her sphere of usefulness enlarged. She was naturally assigned a leading position in society -- a place she held from first to last, without the least ostentatious effort, but simply of her inherent worth. Revered by all, for her amiability of character; for her constant effort to relieve distress and suffering in others; for her sweet disposition and practical good sense; she never willfully made enemies, but constantly accumulated and made friends. Years ago, when sickness and death invaded our home, she was among the very first to exhibit to us these peculiar traits which always called her to homes of affliction, suffering and mourning, and thus endeared herself to those who in times of trial needed assistance and friends; so that in the many years of her residence in our midst, with the constantly recurring vicissitudes of life, during which time few families have escaped, she was known and loved by all, for in her they always found a sympathizing friend. Her deeds of charity and benevolence were the reverse of many; private and unseen by the public, yet general as the necessities of cases presented opportunities. It was thus that so many learned to love and esteem her. But she is gone to her reward, and her works do follow her! Her memory will sweetly linger in many a home and many a heart! The proudest monument to her memory is already erected in the hearts of her friends. Her loss to the village is great; but only in her family and home can it most deeply be felt. As a wife and mother, she could have had few equals. No words of ours can add to their consolation. Their loss in this world is indeed irreparable. Permit us to say -- parenthetically, that in comparison with the loss of a wife, all other bereavements are trifling. She who fills so large a space in the domestic heaven; she who busies herself so unweariedly for the precious ones around her; bitter are the tears that fall upon her cold and lifeless form! While living the world now seem to have been an amber colored pathway, where the sun shone upon beautiful flowers, or the stars hung glittering overhead. The soul lingers upon the past. No thorns are now remembered. We think of her now only as all gentleness, all beauty, all purity and love. But she is dead! The hands which have ministered so untiringly are folded, white and cold, beneath the gloomy portals of the grave. The heart, whose every beat measured an eternity of love, lies silent beneath our feet. The eyes bent over her with smiles, now close above her in tears. A strange hush is in every room. Oh! it is a sad home when the wife is gone, when the mother is dead! We know it all. We can offer no consolation, but that which religion gives. we must look up in faith. Our treasuries are there! Earth yields only such mortal and perishable treasures. The flowers of earth die; the gems of earth fade, and the very gold corrodes and rusts; but the heavens are permanent. Like the stars, changeless, cheering and loving are the saints of night. Not like the false, fading glare of earthly toys, is their pure, imperishable radiance, for they shine as the brightness of the firmament, and as the stars forever and ever. There are our treasures, our lost ones. There is our only hope. Such was the character of Mrs. Mickey. Such the loss our town sustains; such the loss to her family; such the sad bereavement of our friend who must feel betimes as if all of earth was lost. Our only word of consolation, in this the hour of his deep affliction, must be -- "Look up". Like the stars of the morning that have faded in the light of a brighter heaven, she is not lost -- only gone before. Though the brightness of our lives seem on such occasions to be gone -- though the shadows of night seem to fall around us, and the world itself seems a funeral pall, and we look forward into the coming lonely night, yet we must remember there is a dawn follows every twilight, and the sun still shines beyond -- and will shine forever. Hence we must not give way too much to grief. Though the loss is great, it affords abundant consolation that a life of so much usefulness, in its active duties as well as example to others, has closed without anything to mar its beauty, or to destroy the sweet memory of her, that lingers in the hearts of all her relatives, neighbors and friends. Her funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, attended by a VERY large concourse of people. A funeral sermon will be preached in the Presbyterian Church on Sunday, October 18th., at 11 o'clock, A.M.  [Shelby Independent News: 08 October 1874, Vol. 6, No. 50]  *The Richland Shield & Banner of 17 October 1874 also contains a lengthy obituary for Mrs. Mickey.

Mickey, Rebecca Cummins -- Died, on Friday, October 2d., after a protracted and painful illness, Mrs. Rebecca Cummins Mickey entered into rest in the 50th. year of her age. Mrs. Mickey was a sincere Christian. She united with the Shelby Presbyterian Church thirty-two years ago, and was actively engaged in the Sabbath school work for thirty years, only leaving it, when the Master called her to the valley of suffering. She belonged to the whole community, for she was identified with its growth, and spiritual interests from her childhood days. Her birthplace was in the vicinity, and her life-tree grew up amongst us, shading many a weary head and aching heart with her Christian charity. Her patient gentle disposition won for her many friends. She was a tried Christian. She suffered much, but these sufferings only brought her closer to Jesus, and kept her there. She had nothing to fear, but just waited at the door, till the Master should bid her "come up higher". Words are useless, where such a life speaks with its thousand tongues. The community and the cause of Christ has met with a great loss, as the expressions of sympathy at her funeral showed. She leaves a husband, son and daughter, with many friends, to mourn, but not as those who have no hope. The following paper was adopted by the Presbyterian Sabbath school last Sabbath morning, and requested it be put on the permanent records of the school, and also to be published in the Independent News: IN MEMORIAM. About a year ago, as our teachers and scholars remember, we first missed a faithful one among us. Sabbath after Sabbath passed and she came not. This is sadly remembered by those especially whom she faithfully pointed to the Lamb of God. While we, as a school, looked anxiously each returning Sabbath for the faithful one in Israel, our hopes were crushed, as we heard from time to time that fell disease had taken hold of her, and that her coming and going among us was ended. To-day words but mockingly tell our sadness as we remember that on last Friday at midday, the voice ever so pleasant, among us, forever hushed, and today, this quiet day of rest, while her spirit communes in heaven with those gone from our school in years past, to-day we solemnly lay her form away to await the resurrection. But as a school let us feel that -- Inasmuch as God in His infinite wisdom has called Mrs. Rebecca Mickey after her labors of 30 years among us, to His presence and the joys of Heaven, we humbly submit to His will, and bow our heads in sorrow at our loss, and comfort our hearts in knowing that it is her eternal gain.

Mickey, Thomas -- Died, Thursday evening, April 4th., 1878, Thomas Mickey, in the 68th. year of his age.  There are few of our readers who did not know the deceased, if not personally, at least by reputation.  For about forty years he has been the leading business man of Shelby, this county.  He came to Shelby in June, 1838, and commenced his career as a clerk in a dry gods store.  He soon struck out for himself, and for a number of years the deceased and his brother, Robert Mickey, also deceased, conducted business in partnership.  This business connection was dissolved by Robert Mickey going to New York, in the year 1852.  Since then Mr. Thomas Mickey has continued in business, sometimes alone and sometimes in partnership with others, and during his entire mercantile and business career he was regarded wherever known, as a prompt, active, honorable and successful business man.  He was a public spirited citizen, and if not directly interested he at least assisted in promoting most of the business enterprises of Shelby.  To no one man does Shelby and the surrounding country owe so much of its prosperity as to Mr. Thomas Mickey.  Until he was confined to his house, early in December last there was no man in Northern Ohio who had so completely the confidence of the community in which he lived and of business circles the country over.  It was his pride and boast that he never failed to meet an obligation when due, and his promptness and well known business integrity gave him almost unlimited credit.  During his business career he had to encounter many storms and sail through the shoals of many a business panic;  he came through them all with the increased confidence of business men.  We believe, had he been able to attend his business and give it his personal supervision he would never have been compelled to make the assignment he made on the 24th. of January last he would have been able to meet his obligations as they fell due and have paid every creditor dollar for dollar all he owed them.  He had a wonderful business faculty and always gained -- strength and courage when others less gifted became discouraged and disheartened.  Mr. Mickey was a man of broad and liberal views;  generous, frequently aiding others to his own disadvantage, a kind and affectionate husband and parent;  a warm friend, a forgiving enemy, a man whom the community could ill afford to lose.  His disease was cancer of the liver and pyloric orifice of the stomach.  A post mortem revealed the fact that his liver weight fifteen and one half pounds while the weight of a healthy liver is but about four pounds.  We are told that though suffering much during the past two or three months of his life Mr. Mickey never murmured or complained;  he endured patiently to the end, and at last passed peacefully away, crossing the dark river in the hope of a happy immortality beyond.  [Ohio Liberal:  10 April 1878]

Middlesworth, Faye -- A message was received here last night to the effect that Miss Faye Middlesworth, who was terribly injured in the Shelby bridge disaster, died at her home in Shiloh.

Miss Middlesworth's injuries were believed to be fatal from the first, although her friends and physicians hoped that she might recover. In addition to having both legs broken, Miss Middlesworth suffered internal injuries and the latter probably caused death. -- [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News: 08 July 1898, Vol. 14, No. 57]

Miller, David -- In Memoriam, April 13, 1875, near Mansfield, David Miller, aged 83 years, 3 months and 19 days.  Passed away to his home in heaven.  Our kind father has left us, and we are very sorrowful, but we do not sorrow as those who have no hope.  We know that those who die in the Lord, Christ will bring with him.  We expect to see him with immortal glory clothed in white.  During his last years, when the silver cord began to loosen and the golden bowl to break, his eyes grew so dim he could read but little;  but he had treasured up the precious promises of the Master, and lived by faith on Christ.  I have never known a purer, or more childlike spirit, nor seen one who had more patience and resignation in suffering.  <<verse omitted>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  01 May 1875]

Miller, Dick -- At 7 o'clock this morning it was reported that "Dick" Miller, he ex-ballplayer, had been found dead in bed. Miller's parents reside on North Adams Street, but for over a year "Dick" has occupied a room above Mason's drug store on North Main Street. At 7 o'clock this morning a sister of Miller's had occasion to go to his room and found him lying in bed apparently dead. She at once gave the alarm and Dr. McMillen was sent for. Before he arrived Miss Miller says that she thought she observed her brother gasp slightly once or twice. Dr. R. Harvey Reed and Dr. Mason were also summoned, but upon their arrival all agreed that he was dead. Subsequently it was ascertained that Miller had been brought to his room by two companions at 2 o'clock this morning and and placed in bed in a badly intoxicated condition. Nothing further in regard to the matter could be learned. The statement is probably correct, as he has been dissipating heavily for the last few months. Prosecuting Attorney H.E. Bell was placed in possession of the facts in the case, but as it was shown that life was not extinct when the man was found, no post mortem was ordered. An undertaker was directed to dress the remains and place them in shape for burial and at the same time make a thorough examination of the body for marks of violence, the examination of the physicians being only superficial. Miller has been subject to apoplectic fits and it is supposed that as he had been on a protracted spree he was attacked with one while in his room alone and death had been the result. On a chair in the room close to the dead man's hand was found a quart bottle nearly filled with whisky with a glass near by. Miller was well known as a ball pitcher and for awhile did great service for the local club, having great speed and some fine curves. Delehanty, the great professional player, who was playing with Mansfield in 1886, gave Miller the name of "Cyclone". In 1887 Miller signed with Jackson, Mich., which had become a member of the Tri-State League, but he was soon released, as his appetite for drink got the better of him. During the last year Miller had braced up somewhat, probably due to his declining health, but still going on protracted sprees occasionally. As soon as the remains have been placed in readiness for burial they will be taken to the home of the father of the deceased on North Adams Street, where the funeral will take place.

Millott, Nancy Jane (Paste) -- Nancy Jane (Paste) Millott was born Oct. 20th., 1869 and died July 31st., 1895, aged 25 years, 9 months and 11 days. She was the only daughter of William and Rebecca Paste.  She united with the Presbyterian church in Bellville in Feb. 1893 of which she remained a member till her death. The last two years of her life brought much pain and suffering. Since last 4th. of July one year ago she was confined to her bed requiring much attention and care. In all of this affliction she was patient and trustful. The life went out soon; yet so slowly as to leave a reflection of light along her passage visible to those who watched by her side; which light appeared brightest in the testimony of victory she left. Mrs. Millott leaves a father, a mother, one brother and a host of friends on this side of the River. Appropriate funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church at 11 o'clock Aug. 2nd., conducted by Rev. J.H. Deeds in the absence of her pastor Rev. C.W. Caldwell. The theme was an appropriate one, "the destructions that wasteth at noonday". The family takes this opportunity of publicly thanking the neighbors and friends for the interest taken and the kindness shown during the long sickness and hour of affliction; also the choir for the excellent music rendered both at the home and at the church. -- [BELLVILLE INDEPENDENT: 08 August 1895, Vol. 8, No. 12]

Mitchell, William -- William McCormick, a brother-in-law of William Mitchell, the old man who died very suddenly at McCahill's boarding house on North Main Street yesterday, is here today looking after the remains of his relative. The body will be taken to Windsor and buried from the McCormick residence. The deceased was of Irish descent and 65 years of age. A News man had an extended talk with Coroner Baughman today and from that official much additional information was gleaned. When the body was taken charge of by the authorities the exact amount of cash found upon it was $919.65. This sum was in peculiar shape, the paper money being very dirty. Of the money, $260 was in gold, all of which was coined before the war. About $130 of the money was in small change such as nickels and dimes and was probably accumulated as the result of paying for his meals at the Tremont House for so long a time with silver dollars. There were also four $100 bills. The money was deposited in the Farmers' National bank by the coroner. Coroner Baughman and Dr. Davis completed the post mortem examination yesterday afternoon and found that death was the direct result of the bursting of a blood vessel in the man's brain. The deceased was also afflicted with fatty degeneration of the heart, which would have caused death in a short time in any event. The story of additional wealth said to be on deposit in an Ashland bank has not yet been verified, according to Probate Judge Brinkerhoff and Coroner Baughman. Among the other things found on Mitchell's body was a deed for a farm of 160 acres of land in Canada. The wife of the deceased lives about one and a half miles west from Amoy. Mrs. Mitchell was formerly married to a man named Robinson, by whom she had several children, it is stated. Mr. and Mrs. Mitchell had one child, a daughter, but she died some time ago. Mitchell and his wife have not lived together for more than 20 years. The old man got it into his head that it was his duty to convert the "court house ring" and that was his reason for holding preaching and other services about the band stand in Central park. He had an idea that the band stand and fountain cover had something to do with the "court house ring". Coroner Baughman stated to a News man that some time ago he went into probate court for the purpose of having an inquest of insanity held for William Mitchell, but that the court was busy at the time and he let the matter go. The property left by the deceased will probably go to the widow. -- [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield): 08 February 1898, Vol. 14, No. 11]
