Nail, H. -- Another Pioneer Gone -- We are again called upon to record the death of another Richland County pioneer.  Mr. H. Nail, one of the oldest citizens of this county, died on last Sunday, June 2nd., in the seventy-fourth year of his age.  Mr. Nail was born in Somerset County, Pa., Sept. 30th., 1793, and emigrated to Fairfield County, this State, in 1806, and to Richland County in 1810, and has resided in Madison Township ever since, a period of fifty-four years.  He was in Mansfield when there was but three or four cabins in it, one of which was Sturges' store.  Mr. Nail served as a soldier in 1812, and as a volunteer in the army of defense against the Indians, he assisted in building the chain of block houses erected on the frontier in Richland and Huron counties, and served his time faithfully and creditably.    He was a Trustee of Madison Township for eight years, was one of the most respected citizens of Richland County, and as a member of the Methodist church, at Mansfield, for thirty-six years, has always been a consistent and worthy follower of his Savior.  His loss will be deeply felt in the community from which he has been taken.  One by one these veterans are going from among us, but they will live long in the memories of their descendants and friends.  [Shelby Chronicle:  13 June 1867, Vol. 1, No. 15 as reprinted from the Mansfield Herald]

Nevius, Viola J. --  Mrs. Viola J., wife of Dr. L.W. Nevius, was born near Fredericktown, O., February 8, 1849, and died in Toledo (OH) July 28, 1886, in her 38th. year.  After her marriage, June 23, 1868, she lived successively in Fredericktown, Bellville, Mansfield and Toledo in each of which places are many dear friends who will mourn her death.  Thoughtful and conscientious from childhood, she professed religion and joined the Methodist Episcopal church in her 16th. year, and until death never gave any reason to doubt the sincerity of her faith or the soundness of her experience in divine things.  Although naturally of an amiable and cheerful disposition, she shunned rather than sought the ordinary pleasures of society, preferring the associations of her own happy home circle, to the happiness of which she so easily and largely contributed.  Her reverence for sacred things was such that the mere profession of a Christian faith would have been morally impossible, hence, the evidence of her piety was not so much in words as in the manifestation of the Christ-like spirit in the discharge of all the duties, and endurance of the trials which arise from the varied relations of life.  If her judgment was not, her her heart always was equal to every emergency;  and no one, who had a right to demand affection's service from her ever failed to receive full measure.  For years she had suffered in body, but much more in mind as repeated surgical operations indicated more certainly the hopelessness of her case.  The desire to live for hte sake of her own and her mother's family was strong and persistent, but throughout the long struggle, and especially the last, long fiery trial, she never murmured, sweetly submitting knowing that "to live was Christ, and to die gain."  The frequent expressions of affection toward husband, daughter and little son were exceedingly tender and touching, and have left an impression of the sick and dying chamber that cannot be forgotten.  Death came without the least perceptible struggle, and this saintly soul had entered into the everlasting rest.  Her remains were taken to Mansfield for burial, at which the attendance of many friends testified their regard for her memory, and sympathy with the husband and children in their bereavement.  On the edge of such sorrow, and in the shadow of its cloud, the heart will say it was a privilege to be the husband of such a wife, and the children of such a mother.  [Mansfield Herald:  26 August 1886 as reprinted from the Toledo (OH) Sunday Commercial]

Newman, Henry -- A letter received yesterday by relatives in this city conveys the news of the death of Henry Newman at his home in Bryan, Williams County, Ohio.  Mr. Newman was one of the pioneers of Richland County and is well known in this city.  He has for some time been suffering from the diseases peculiar to advanced age, but up to a recent date he was hale and hearty and led an active life.  Henry Newman was the fourth child of Jacob Newman and was born Oct. 17, 1802, in Franklin County, Pennsylvania.  His mother died a few weeks after his birth and his father then emigrated to Westmoreland County.  In 1805 his father moved to Stark County, Ohio, and in 1807 he came to Richland County and built a log house near the site of Goudy's Mill, about three miles east of this city.  Jacob Newman was the first settler in Richland County.  Henry remained in Stark County until the fall of 1808 when his father returned to Pennsylvania and was married.  In 1811 Jacob Newman came to Mansfield and continued to live in this city until his death in June, 1813.  In the winter of 1812 Jacob piloted Gen. Crook's army to the Maumee country.  After his father's death Henry assisted his mother in the care of her property and gleaned what education the schools of the day afforded.  In 1828 he made a trip to New Orleans and a few years after his return was married to Jane Ward, a member of the Ward family in Weller Township to which locality he removed and entered 80 acres of land.  Mr. and Mrs. Newman lived on this farm, to which many acres were added from time to time, until 1849.  On this farm all of their children except one were born.  His sons were Jacob, born in 1832, now a resident of La Grange, Ind.;  Joseph, who lost his life in the late war, being mortally wounded at Missionary Ridge;  Andrew, who was also in the war and who died after his return home, from the exposure he had received.  All three of these sons entered the war as lieutenants and all were promoted.  Mr. Newman's daughters were Harriet, Sarah, Frances and Elizabeth.  After leaving this city, Mr. Newman moved to Williams County, where he purchased a large farm and erected a saw mill, which, with the aid of his son, he conducted until 1875, when he ceased the active labors of his life and went to Bryan, where he resided until the time of his death.  Mrs. Newman died June 30, 1876, and since that time Mr. Newman has made his home with his daughter, Frances.  The remains were interred at Bryan, this afternoon.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  20 January 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 36]

Newman, Jacob -- Died, near Van Wert, Ohio, January 31st., 1891, after a protracted illness, Jacob Newman, a former well-known and respected citizen of this community.  His father, Michael Newman, came to this vicinity in the spring of 1808 and resided with his brother Jacob, near the present site of the Campbell mill, the first habitation of the white man in all this country.  The deceased was born in this township more than seventy years ago and was an older brother of John Newman, so well and favorably known in this community.  He had many of the characteristics of his pioneer ancestors.  He was quiet, unassuming, of rare good sense, high moral character, a good neighbor, and in all respects a good man, thrifty, industrious and prosperous, well worthy of close kinship to the founders of our city.  Many years ago he removed to Van Wert County, purchased and improved a farm, where he resided until his death.  His wife died many years before he removed from this vicinity, leaving him two children, John H. and Lizzie, now married, who survive him.  His remains reached here this evening and the funeral will take place from the undertaking rooms of James A. Niman, on Tuesday, February 2nd., at 2 p.m.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  07 February 1891, Vol. LXXIII, No. 37]

Newman, John

Newman, John -- The announcement of the death of Mr. John Newman, at Louisville, Ky., on Friday last, November 30th., whither he went a few weeks ago in search of health, started our whole community and was, indeed, sad news to his many relatives and friends. The passing away of such a man calls for more than mere mention, and as a faithful chronicler of current events THE HERALD desires to put on record some just tribute to his memory. Mr. Newman for many years had occupied public official positions in the county, and was well known to nearly all the people. He was, however, of so quiet a nature, so modest in his mein, so unassuming in his deportment, and so reticent except among most intimate friends, that his real genuine worth, as a man, and as a citizen, was, we fear, not fully appreciated by our people. In his life, neither THE HERALD, nor either of our contemporaries of the press would have ventured to say much in his commendation, for we all realized the fact that it would have been aught but pleasing to him. Of the dead, we may take more freedom, and specially, when his character and career are so worthy of mention. Mr. Newman was a native son of Richland County, and was born December 10, 1825, and had he survived a few more days, would have marked fifty-eight years of life. His parents were of that hardy, heroic stock which did much to advance the first and early settlements of the county. His father, Mr. Michael Newman, who died in 1862 at an advanced age, was one of the pioneers of the county. Our older readers, many of them, will recall his benevolent face, his kindly ways, and his sterling qualities of manhood. His large family of sons and daughters all became and are good citizens and kind neighbors, but John early indicated much more than ordinary breadth of intellect, and was intuitively a student. His knowledge of pure mathematics was wonderful, and we venture to say that in the scientific world, Richland County has had no other son so distinguished. The leading minds of many of our universities and colleges, have been for years his correspondents. Few indeed of our people, as they greeted this quiet, unostentatious man, appreciated his great ability and acquirements. His studies, however, did not have the tendency, as is often the case, to make him an impracticable man; on the contrary, he put to the best active uses, the storehouses of his knowledge. He was not only a mathematician, but also an engineer and mechanic. If any of the lenses of his theodolite became broken, from the rough block of glass he would form, and fashion, and grind, and polish a new one. If leisure came to him when the duties were not pressing, his active brain would invent and design, and his deft and skillful hands would manufacture the tools and instruments through and by which he would and has made telescopes and microscopes, and other works of genius and art. Books were his companions, but not more so than his own thoughts, and yet he was not an unsocial man. He loved his fellow man. Remaining unmarried, the families of his brothers and sisters were the objects of his care and solicitude, and in his death, though his last will and testament, he did not forget them. Politically he was claimed with the party not of THE HERALD, yet again and again when a candidate for County Surveyor he was substantially supported by all the people. He was first elected County Surveyor in 18--, and continued in the office through successive elections until 1882. Though residing outside the city limits, years ago, when the late Col. Burns was President of the Council and our City Fathers were made of such men as Col. Burns, Jas. H. Cook, Moses R. Dickey, Wm. McIlvain, Eckels McCoy, Mr. Newman was appointed City Civil Engineer and was continued as such until his failing health reminded him that he ought not longer to expose himself to the storms of winter and suns of summer in the discharge of such duties. In 1850, when 25 years of age, he became a Mason, and was rapidly advanced; in 1852 a Royal Arch Mason, and in 1868 a Knight Templar. There was much a chivalrous Knight in our friend and none save his immediate relatives more deplore his death than the members of Mansfield Commandery No. 21. In the last few days of his life he made himself known as a Mason, and Sir Knight, to his brethren in Louisville, who gave him every attention, and Sir Knight Henry R. Mitchell, of Louisville, accompanied his remains to Mansfield, reaching here Sunday morning. His funeral obsequies were in charge of Mansfield Commandery, the services being held at the Methodist Episcopal Church, on which occasion Rev. A.D. Knapp, the able and eloquent pastor, reminded the Sir Knights and large assembly in most choice and chaste language of the lofty parentage of the spirits of men and their kinship to the Father of all. The attendance on these obsequies was very large and indicated the great respect in which Mr. Newman was held. One more has passed to the other side. A good man, a true friend, a brave soul has departed. -- HAIL AND FAREWELL. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 06 December 1883, Vol. 34, No. 3]

Niman, died at her home in Chicago Monday evening, Nov. 4, about 8:00, succumbing to an operation for a tumor made a few days before and from which it was at first believed she would recover.   Mrs. Niman was the youngest daughter of Mr. & Mrs. William H. Hiestand, formerly of this city, and when a child went to Chicago with her parents who moved there shortly after the fire of 1871, where she and her parents have since resided.  While residing in that city she became acquainted with Mr. Niman, the son of Mr. & Mrs. James A. Niman, of this city, who was located there, and they were married in 1887 and have since made their home in that city, both in the intervening years making frequent visits to Mansfield as the guests of Mr. Niman's parents.  Immediately upon the receipt of a telegram giving notice of the death, Mrs. G.E.

Niman, Charles M. -- The first serious hunting accident of the season in this locality occurred Saturday, about 10 o'clock, in D.R. Frasher's woods, three miles southwest of Butler, resulting in the death of Charles M. Niman, of Mansfield.  Mr. Niman, who is an employee of the Aultman-Taylor works at Mansfield, in company with John Schlosser, came to Butler on No. 16 Friday evening, and went out to B.F. Beal's to stay overnight.  Early the next morning the two gentlemen, accompanied by Frank Beal, started out to hunt.  They were later joined by James Frasher, son of D.R. Frasher, and another young man.  Shortly before 10 o'clock the hunting party passed over the line to the Frasher woods, where Mr. Niman shot a squirrel.  Being somewhat fatigued with the travel incident to hunting, the crowd sat down to rest a few minutes.  After reloading his gun, Mr. Niman perched upon a high stump, with the breech of the shot gun resting on the ground.  While in the act of getting down from the stump, Mr. Niman pulled the gun toward him, and it is the belief that it being half-cocked, the trigger caught on the bark of the stump, and was discharged.  Just how it happened, no one will ever know, suffice it to say, a loud explosion attracted the attention of the others to Mr. Niman's direction, with the thought that he had probably brought down another squirrel.  To their horror they discovered their companion lying on the ground near the stump, from which the concussion had knocked him, with a gaping wound in his breast.  The heavy charge had entered his breast just below the ribs, going directly upward in a straight line toward his throat.  A portion of the liver protruded from the wound, which was about the size of a man's hand.  Dr. Rummel was at once summoned and the wounded man removed to the Frasher home.  His friend at Mansfield were also notified by phone, as was Coroner Goodman.  Before the physician arrived on the scene of the accident, the wounded man had breathed his last, being perfectly conscious until the last.  He lived less than half an hour after being shot.  The coroner viewed the body and it was removed to Butler about 1 p.m. and Undertaker George prepared it for shipment to his home at Mansfield on No. 3.  He leaves a wife and parents but no children, to mourn his untimely demise.  This accident occurred within less than half a mile of the place where a Mansfield man dropped dead two years ago, while hunting in that locality.  --  [Butler Enterprise:  08 September 1905, Vol. 17, No. 31]

Niman, Margaret (Meldrum) -- Died in Mansfield at the residence of her son-in-law on Mulberry Street, Mrs. Margaret Niman, widow of William O. Niman, May 18th., aged 83 years, 9 months and 16 days.  She was united in marriage February 24th., 1832, her husband having preceded her to his heavenly home over four years.  Mrs. Niman and her husband were among those who had to endure the trials and hardships of pioneer life, having come to this place when it was an almost unbroken wilderness.  She came with her parents August 4th., 1818, and her husband, March 15th., 1815.  Mrs. Niman was the daughter of Robert and Phebe Meldrum.  She was born in Fayette County, Pennsylvania, and reared by Christian parents, their home having been for years one of the preaching places of the M.E. church.  She united with the same church at the age of fourteen, the Rev.

Stoutnour, whom she raised.  Her conversation through her last illness was that of comfort and consolation to those around her, longing daily for the time of her departure and saying to her daughter that Jesus could make a dying bed feel soft as downy pillows.  Funeral services were conducted by Rev. A.D. Knapp.  [Mansfield Herald:  03 June 1886]

Baggs, James A., John B. and Jerry Niman, being at her bedside to the final end, her son W.B. Niman, being absent in Chicago.  She had several grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.  She has one surviving sister, Miss Mary Bradley, of North Mulberry Street.  She has been a consistent Christian all her life, having been a member of the Presbyterian church over 70 years.  She leaves a large circle of relatives and friends, and her children mourn the loss of a kind and loving mother.  The funeral will take place from her residence, 188 North Walnut Street, Tuesday, Feb. 26th., at 1 p.m.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  02 March 1895, Vol. LXXVII, No. 42]

Norris, Evan D. -- Mr. Evan D. Norris, the well-known liveryman, died Sunday, the 9th. instant, at 3 p.m.  His death had been almost daily expected for two weeks.  For over two months he had not been well.  Feeling in need of rest, he sought relief in July at Magnetic Springs, where he sojourned for a brief season.  Just three weeks before the last day he returned home in poorer health than when he left.  He at once took to his bed and never rose from it again.  He was constantly nursed during his illness by his faithful wife and two male attendants, Captain W.H. Farber and James G. Eggleston.  Dr. J.W. Craig and R.H. Reed were his attending physicians.  He required somebody to sit up with him every night and this office was alternately performed by Messrs. C.E. McBride and S.D. Nye.  The cause of his death was fatty degeneration of the heart and muscular tissues.  He was also afflicted with Bright's disease of the kidneys.  His symptoms during the last few days of his life were extreme drowsiness, mental hallucination, and difficult breathing.  He desired to sleep continually in the daytime, but was very restless at night.  He imagined he was still at the Springs.  He breathed heavily and fast, but ate substantially nothing.  For the first week he subsisted on chicken broth and beef tea.  He ate absolutely nothing during the last two weeks.  Much of the time he was not in his right mind, but continued in a semi-conscious or lethargic condition.  His bed was placed in the sitting room, or middle room of the house (No. 40 East Third Street) which contained two doors and two windows.  These were constantly kept open for the sake of ventilation, and in addition to this means of admitting air into the apartment, the patient required to be fanned the greater portion of the time.  His extreme obesity, his weight exceeding 350 pounds, rendered this necessary.  He passed away without intense pain, and apparently died of suffocation.  Mr. Norris was born at Tiffin, April 7, 1833, and was consequently 52 years old at the time of his death.  He was the son of Eli and Sarah Norris, who are both deceased, and was one of a family of eight children, three sons and five daughters, named as follows:  Stephen, Lloyd and Evan;  Mary, Aberrilla, Sarah Ann, Harriet and Elizabeth.  He was married at Mt. Vernon, December 22d., 1868, to Miss Sarepta D. Cole, who survives him.  He came to this city from Tiffin nineteen years ago.  For two years he was employed by the firm of Emminger & Sherman (the Senator) to sell windmills.  At that time he was slender and of medium size.  He then engaged in the livery business and remained proprietor of the livery stable owned at the time of his death for seventeen years.  It was custom to walk to and from his place of business, but latterly he rode a great deal, invariably driving a single horse in an open buck-board.  On account of his great weight, which depressed the springs in no small degree, it was not so inconvenient for him to get into a vehicle of this kind.  Exertion of course fatigued him, and he therefore but seldom indulged in any vigorous physical exercise.  He enjoyed field sports, however, and was an active member of the Mansfield Shooting Club.  He was present at the last annual picnic held by the club in July on the banks of the Blackfork.  He used frequently to go to Toledo and to Licking reservoir near Newark to amuse himself by shooting ducks.  Mr. Norris was a member of the Presbyterian Church, and contributed liberally toward its' support.  He united with the church about five years ago.  He was also a member in good standing of the Knights of Honor, in which his life was insured for $2,000 for the benefit of his wife.  His life was ever consistent with such religious professions as he made.  Mr. and Mrs. Norris had no children of their own, but had adopted a little girl named Mary Tabor, whom they purposed bringing up as their own daughter.  She is eight years old.  The widow is left in good circumstances, being sole heir to the residence, livery stable, and whatever personal property her husband may have possessed.  The deceased was familiarly known to everybody in the county, and was a general favorite.  He was of a jovial nature, kind-hearted, with an inexhaustible fund of humor, and he hugely enjoyed a joke.  His laugh was hearty and whole-souled.  He had numerous friends, and was himself a warm friend.  He was six feet tall, though apparently much shorter.  His chest measure was two feet four inches;  depth, 20 inches.  His waist was as large as the waists of half a dozen men of ordinary size.  The funeral took place from his late residence Tuesday afternoon at 4 o'clock.  --  [Mansfield Herald:  13 August 1885, Vol. 35, No. 39]

Numan, Sterling -- Shelby.  Sterling Numan, the 8-year-old son of Mr. & Mrs. John Numan, living at the corner of Main and Leichty Avenue, died Sunday of blood poison, after an illness of two weeks.  Some time ago he injured one of his knees while in the woodshed and the would developed into the abscess which was operated by the doctors, but without result, as the poison in his system caused death.  The case was probably aggravated by the extreme nervousness of the child, who, during his last days of life, was delirious and suffered from the repetition of recent experience. Some weeks ago he was in swimming and was kept in the water several hours by elder boys who threw sticks and stones at him, as he stated.  During his illness he imagined that he was in the water again and that the boys were striking him with sticks and stones, and for several days his cries to be saved from their persecution was head for a block around the Numan home.  The funeral will be held Tuesday at 10 o'clock at the residence, conducted by John Wilson of the M.E.
