Myers, A.J. -- A Good Man Gone -- Esq. A. J.

The funeral of this noble man, whose life is well worthy emulation by the very large concourse of sympathizing friends in attendance who wished to show him homage, took place on Tuesday, April 4, 1893, at 11 a.m., from the family residence, under the auspices of Lucullus Lodge, No 121, K. of P., of which deceased was a charter member, assisted by Sturges Lodge, No. 357, I.O.O.F. and Samuel Bell Post, No. 536, Department of Ohio, G.A.R., and accompanied by a large number of brothers from abroad belonging to above orders. The very neat casket and its honored remains were borne to the M. P. Church with the highest honors at the command of these noble orders, where a most fitting funeral sermon was delivered over the remains by Rev. Hissey, of Zanesville. At the close of which Attorney L. C. Mengert, of Mansfield, made a few short and very eulogistic remarks. This latter, we believe, was in keeping with a particular request of the deceased before he died. After the services at the church had been gone through with the funeral cortege was again taken up, when the remains were borne to the cemetery on the hill where they were given a last earthly home by the orders named.
