Palm, Alfred N. -- Independence, April 1, 11 p.m.  Mr. Alfred N. Palm was shot this P.M. at S.P. Bowersox's saloon.  It is alleged Bowersox done the shooting.  Palm only lived a few minutes.  He was shot in the left side, the ball passing through the body.  Great excitement prevails.  Palm was a single man about 27 years of age and bore a very good reputation.  His remains were taken to his sister's residence.  Bowersox was arrested and taken before Mayor McLaughlin.  A reporter for the LIBERAL this morning called at the jail and interviewed Samuel P. Bowersox, charged with the murder of Alfred N. Palm.  The information we learned from him amounted to but little, as he most emphatically denied firing the fatal shot which killed Palm.  He said he closed his saloon about 9 o'clock, and that the shooting was done shortly after this time, while Palm and a tramp called "Coffee" were standing on the outside of the saloon.  He also denies having any quarrel with Palm about change, in fact says he had no quarrel whatever with him.  He also said he heard stones striking the house, but that he did not go outside of his building and shoot Palm as charged.  No doubt but what he will be tried at the present term of Court.  <<Testimony omitted - but is included in the newspaper article>>  [Ohio Liberal:  03 April 1878]

Palmer, Hiram -- On Thursday morning of last week, the community was shocked to hear of the sudden death of our townsman HIRAM PALMER.  He had been in the employ of Mr. J.D.

Church, of which he was a consistent member.  Mr. Palmer was one of Shelby's soldiers, having gone to the army in 1862, and served with a number of others in the 121st. Regiment, O.V.I., and was honorably discharged.  He was an honest, hardworking, laboring man;  and his fidelity to duty, in whatsoever position placed, or employment engaged in, he won for himself the universal respect and esteem of all who knew him.  Many citizens in token of their sympathy and respect, contributed towards the expenses of the occasion, and it is said, will raise a sufficient sum to place suitable tombstones on his grave.  [Shelby Independent News:  09 February 1871, Vol. 3, No. 15]

Parker, of Norwalk, the brother of the deceased, arrived in the city late this afternoon.  He paid all the expenses of his brother's funeral and the remains were interred  as above state.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  06 February 1892]  *An account of the death can be found in the same paper, in the next column over (right) from the death notice.

Parsons, Uel R. -- A SAD ACCIDENT – WHICH RESULTED IN THE DEATH OF UEL R. PARSONS – Shortly before seven o’clock Thursday morning, John E. Ferguson, who, as a clerk with J.W. Wagner, the North Park street hardware dealer, sleeps in the room over the store, was startled by the report of a revolver in the store room below.  Hastily clothing himself he hurried down stairs, there to find Uel R. Parsons, for the past eight years the bookkeeper of the establishment, lying on the floor with blood and brains oozing from a bullet wound in his head.  He was lying near the stairway leading to the second floor, and at a point about one-third of the way distant from the office to the front door.  Near him lay a five-shot 38 caliber Smith & Wesson revolver, which contained two unexploded cartridges and one shell.  The bullet which struck him entered the right side of the head at a point parallel with and about 1½ inch back of the ear, and then was deflected from its course, made almost a right angle, was split by coming in contact with the bones of the skull, and a portion of it came out near the crown of the head and struck the ceiling, while the other portion remained in the head.  As soon as he saw the condition of affairs, Mr. Ferguson summoned Dr. Reed and Mr. Wagner, both of whom were soon on the spot.  It was apparent that the wound was mortal, and for this reason, after the removal of the unfortunate young man to the residence of his parents on North Main street, which removal was made as soon as practicable, it was deemed advisable not to add to his agony by probing for the bullet, but in the evening, as the only possible chance for the amelioration of his condition lay in the removal of the bullet, and the proper dressing of the wound the operation was performed by Drs. Reed and Craig, with assistants.  After the operation a very slight hope was entertained that the recovery of the wounded man would follow, but so lacerated was the brain by the splintered bone that recovery was impossible, and death resulted on Monday morning at 2 o’clock.  Before his removal to his home, Mr. Parsons stated in the hearing of several persons that the wound was not self-inflected, and a full and careful investigation of the circumstances connected with the sad affair would indicate that the shooting was accidental.  Mr. Parsons quite frequently worked at his books until late at night and sometimes even during the entire night.  For a few days prior to Thursday, Mr. Parsons had been engaged in making out his trial balance sheet and in endeavoring to discover a slight error he had worked all night Wednesday, and had made all preparations to leave the store to go home to breakfast on Thursday morning, having put on his overshoes, overcoat and hat, and turned out the gas in the office.  It was his custom while at work at nights to keep a revolver lying on his desk for self protection.  It is thought that in adjusting his overcoat, with the revolver still carelessly held in his hand it was exploded and the wound inflicted as stated.  This sad accident brought death to one of Mansfield’s best and most universally esteemed young men, who was known and respected as being the soul of honor and true manliness.  As earnest and devoted Christian he was zealous in good works and ever faithful his attendance and religious duties at the Congregational Church of which he was a worthy member.  Just three months previous to the day of his tragic death he led to the alter Miss Allie Runyan, of this city, and upon her falls heavily this sad trial.  The funeral services of the deceased took place this afternoon at 2 o’clock from the residence of his parents, No. 200 North Main street.   [Ohio Liberal:  16 January 1884]

Patterson, H.W. --- 'Squire H.W. Patterson died quite suddenly at his home on South Main Street at 5:15 yesterday afternoon.  For several years past Mr. Patterson's health has been on the decline and about two years ago he sustained a stroke of paralysis, which confined him to his bed for a number of months.  He recovered sufficiently to be able to walk on the streets occasionally, but last November he sustained another and more severe paralytic stroke, since which time he has been confined to the house the greater portion of the time.  Mr. Patterson had been feeling quite badly for several days and yesterday was sitting in a large rocker, where, apparently he was resting easily.  Suddenly, at the hour mentioned above, he expired without warning to his relatives who had been attending him.  It is thought that the direct cause of death was another stroke of paralysis.  The deceased was well known to the people of Richland County.  He was born on Feb. 13th., 1820, about 16 miles east of Pittsburg.  While he was still an infant his parents emigrated to Richland County and settled near Plymouth.  There Mr. Patterson was reared to manhood and accumulated some property, which he afterward lost by reverse.  Mr. Patterson was some years ago elected to the office of treasurer of Richland County, which position he filled for two terms.  After retiring from the office he settled in this city and was elected Justice of the Peace, which office he held until several years ago.  The deceased leaves a wife and three children, John Patterson, of Buffalo, N.Y., Darius Patterson, of Chicago, and Mrs. Geo. Reymer, of this city.  The funeral will be held Monday afternoon, Rev. H.L. Wiles officiating.  It is expected that Sharon Lodge, I.O.O.F., of Shelby, of which deceased was a member, will be in attendance.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  14 October 1893, Vol. LXXVI, No. 21]

Patterson, James. - Lexington. -The venerable James Patterson died Jan. 1 at the home of his son, Ross, and interment was in the cemetery here Wednesday afternoon.  The deceased was born in Pennsylvania in 1823 and came to Lexington in October, 1835, and began to clerk in a store that Charles Patterson, his uncle kept in the large quaint building known as the “ark” and which Fred Beverstock tore down.  Mr. Patterson once informed the correspondent that in that early era quite a number of houses and cabins had been reared amongst the massive progeny of forest here, but the country about was nearly all in the wild luxuriance and primitive grandeur of nature:  William Damsell, grandfather of Mrs. S. N. Ford, of Mansfield, then was postmaster. Divine services were held in a log house of the most primitive type, it being the first school house erected here.  The pastor was a Methodist of the fervent, shouting pioneer type and assailed the devil’s hosts with courage and fiery zeal.  Mr. Patterson was married in 1854 to Miss Ross, of Morrow county, and she died here Feb. 10, 1893, and their children are Grant Patterson, of Colorado, Mrs. Sadie Strominger, of Mansfield, and Ross Patterson, of this vicinity.  Mr. Patterson was highly esteemed for his intelligence and left his posterity the rich legacy of an honored and unsullied name.  Submitted by Jean and Faye.  [The Mansfield News:  Monday Evening, January 8, 1900]

Patterson, James Andrew -- Those attending the funeral of Mr. Patterson from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. Sawhill of Ontario, Misses Madge and Jennie Patterson and Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Patterson, Ashland.  The community suffered an irreparable loss in the death of Mr. James Patterson, at Ashland last Wednesday.  Just as the history of nations in marked by the lives of its great men, so it is in rural communities, its strong men decide the life of its citizens.  Mr. Patterson was one of those men.  For the last number of years he has dominated or rather moulded the life and thoughts of Savannah more than any other man in the community.  James Patterson was born June 17, 1847, united with the church in 1870, was married to Hulda Huffman and she with the seven children and five grandchildren are left to mourn the loss of a devoted husband and father.  The funeral sermon was preached by pastor Rev. Todd.  Text was chosen by Mr. Patterson from John 5:24.  "Verily, verily I say unto you"  He that heareth my word and believeth on him that sent me shall have everlasting life."  Mr. Patterson was religious without being bigoted and his advice was something worth having, was unbiased in his judgment and will be sadly missed in the town and Presbyterian church of which he was a ruling member.  He was a soldier of the Civil War.  Submitted by Susan.  [Unknown Ashland newspaper]  Additional notes from submitter:  [James Andrew Patterson was born 17 June 1847 and died 19 Aug 1914.  James and wife Hulda (Huffman) Patterson farmed and raised their family in Butler Twp, Richland County, on Noble Rd., about a quarter mile west of Townline, on the south side of the road.  The house and barn were still standing in Dec 2003.  James and his two brothers were raised by his widowed mother, Ann (Lawson) Patterson at her farm on Clear Creek Rd, in Butler Twp, about 4 miles west of Savannah and east of Townline Rd.  The Clear Creek Rd farm, purchased by James' father and uncle in 1842,  is still owned by descendants as of Dec. 2003.   His family tree, including sources of information, can be found in the database of Susan Hopkins at

Pealer, John -- Last Sunday the news swung around the circle like wild fire, that a dead man had been found in George Staley's stable and in less than no time the whole community had been thrown into a fever of excitement and many were on their way to the awful scene that awaited their gaze.  Upon investigation the body was found to be that of John Pealer, son of Fred and Julia Pealer, of near Hemlock Falls, a seemingly frugal young man who had been paying court to Miss Minnie Staley for sometime, and, rumor has it, that they were to have been married that day, but no marriage license was found upon the young man.  On the contrary a large 44 caliber revolver was found lying by his side with which it is supposed he had committed the awful deed, while his pockets contained nothing more than a small piece of tobacco, a few cartridges and an envelope on which was written the following:  "Dear Sirs: -- The first one that finds this please send word to Min right away.  I would like to have seen her before I die, but I guess it is impossible to do so.  This is not because I do not love you Minnie.  Hand this to Min as soon as you can."  Coroner Stofer, of Bellville, was notified by telegraph by Mayor Mengert, but it was rather late in the afternoon and by which time fully a thousand people had gathered upon the scene when he arrived, deceased being left where found until the Coroner came, when the remains of the suicide were viewed by him and Dr. R.D. Horn of North Liberty.  It was discovered that the large ball had entered just below the nipple and passed directly through the heart, lodging up against the backbone from where it was removed.  Death was instantaneous the poor fellow dying without a struggle.  What caused him to commit the rash act or whether it was done by his own hands is as yet a profound mystery and many hold to the belief that he was murdered.  At any rate the case well merits an investigation, for there are many new things coming to light and going the rounds every day.  It is also claimed that two parties were seen in that vicinity a little after dusk on the Friday evening before the tragedy and one of them was taken to be young Pealer.  If this be true what has become of the other fellow?  If innocent it is time he was making the fact known.  If the blood of the young man lay upon the hands of some companion he may have had with him then a rigid investigation may result in bringing the culprit to justice.  But as yet the surroundings of the sad affair seem to be floating upon rumors and superstitions altogether.  The remains were taken from the stable to the suicide's home, near Hemlock Falls, by U. Wheatcraft in his spring wagon on Sunday evening, from which place the funeral took place on Tuesday, conducted by Rev. Sykes, of Perrysville.  Deceased was aged 22 years, 3 months and 6 days.  The funeral was one of the largest that has taken place in that vicinity for many years and the remains were given a last resting place on earth in th St. John's church yard.  Thus ends the career of a young man who might of had a bright future from a scene of love to a scene of death.  The path of the suicide may be a lonely one but it is often trod.  --  [Worthington Enterprise:  15 May 1890, Vol. II, No. 24]  * Another article about this death can be found on the front page of the 12 May 1890 edition of the Mansfield Evening News.  ** Yet another article regarding this death can be found on the front page of the 13 May 1890 edition of the Mansfield Evening News.  *** The coroner's findings were published on the front page of the 15 May 1890 edition of the Mansfield Evening News.

Pealer, John A. -- Newville.  John A. Pealer, one of the old Worthington pioneers, died last Sunday.  He was born in the town of Bighenbauch, Darmstandt, Germany [sic.], Dec. 14, 1804.  His father was a farmer by occupation and he remained with his father assisting him in his farming operations until he reached his majority.  He was then sent to school and by due diligence succeeded in securing a fair knowledge of the common German branches.  His wife was born Sept. 22, 1807, and they came to this country in the fall of 1838.  They wended their way to Richland County, Ohio, and settled near Newville, in Worthington Township.  When they arrived all they could call their own was a family of three children, a few articles of bedding and $1.20 in money.  They first moved into a stable until better quarters could be obtained.  He had two sons in the late Rebellion.  Father Pealer was always ready to furnish money to clear the township from the draft.  He was a life long Democrat.  By hard work and close economy he had accumulated considerable of this world's goods.  He was a good citizen and a good neighbor.  He leaves a wife 82 years old.  He has four sons living.  He was buried on Monday at St. John's.  The funeral services were conducted by the Rev.

Peterman, John -- DIED -- In Jackson Twp., on Thursday, September 21st., 1871, Mr. JOHN PETERMAN, aged 73 years and 7 months.  Mr. Peterman was long a resident in this vicinity a member of the Reformed Church at London, and respected by all who knew him.  The issue dated 05 October 1871 contained a more thorough obituary ...  Mr. Peterman was born in Cumberland County, Pa., February 21st., 1781.  In his youth, he went to Hagerstown, Maryland, where for a number of years he followed his trade of Plow and Wagon Maker.  Here also, he married Catharine, daughter of Charles Oldwine.  In 1830, they started for Ohio -- traveling all the way in a one-horse wagon -- which contained all they had of this world's goods.  At that early day the country west of Pittsburg was almost an unbroken wilderness, there being but a few settlements.  The arrived at the village of Mansfield in the Fall of 1830, which then contained but a few scattered houses, where he soon after opened a Wagon Maker's Shop;  furnishing also many Plows, then made of wrought iron mould-boards.  By industry and perseverance in his work, he secured considerable celebrity in his trade.  On January 7th., 1841, the wife of his youth died, leaving him five motherless children to care for -- their ages ranging from two to twelve years.  In several years after he again married, and continued his business until in 1846, when he removed upon his farm near Shelby, where he died.  He was the father of ten children, all of whom are living;  and all but two married.  In early life he connected himself with the Lutheran church.  He was a man of correct habits.  What he done, was to the point.  He is said never to have given his note but once in his life -- never giving or asking security.  In his political views he was democratic, and so well considered and firm was he in his views, that in this, as in all things else, he remained steadfast till his death.  He leaves his widow and children at home, occupying his farm and property, during her lifetime, as he left out.  He may have had his faults for aught we know, but in his industry, integrity, stability, promptness and economy, he has left an example to his children, worthy to be followed. – [SHELBY INDEPENDENT NEWS:  28 September 1871, Vol. 3, No. 48]

Peterson, David Vanevery -- David Vanevery Peterson was the son of John and Emeline Peterson, and was born on the old Peterson homestead farm on Black Fork, in Monroe township, Richland County, Ohio, just on the border of the county.  His day of birth was August 30, 1866, and he passed away early in the morning of August 29, 1930, being just one day lacking of 64 years of age.  On Feb. 18, 1896, he was united in marriage with Miss Dora E. Smith.  To them were given two sons, Clifford and Clair, who with the wife an mother were at the bedside when he passed away.  Immediately following his marriage he with his wife came to the farm in Green township, Ashland County, in sight of his birthplace, and his entire life was spent in the immediate neighborhood.  While he was able to acquire only such education as the District school provided, yet with a remarkably keen mind a great love of reading, he possessed a good education.  As a farmer he was progressive and up to date, as his splendid home testifies.  He served Green township as trustee for four years, and then at the election in November 1924, he was chosen county commissioner serving faithfully and efficiently for four years.  As senior commissioner it was his privilege, and one that he regarded as a high honor, to turn the first shovelful of earth for the building of the beautiful Ashland County court house of which the county is justly proud.  With a rare gift for making friends Van as we called him, won to himself a host, who throughout two counties and the surrounding section of the State, unite in praise of his ability, faithfulness and unswerving loyalty to right and duty.  Since retiring from the commissioner's office he has been a member of the County Fair Board and was greatly interested in its success.  On June 2, 1921 Bro. Peterson with his wife and younger son were baptized and received into the membership of the Perrysville Baptist church.  Here, as in business and political life, faithfulness was his watch word.  He was unfailingly in his place in the Sunday school and church services.  Chosen Deacon some years ago he was steadfast in his faith and duty.  He leaves to tenderly revere his memory his wife, two sons, a brother James, a sister Mrs. John Harlan, many other relatives and a legion of friends.  A brother, William, died about two years ago, and two brothers, 14 and 18 years of age, died in youth.  Van Peterson was one of those unique characters, who unostentatious and unassuming yet impress themselves upon their associates and the place made vacant in the home, the church and the entire community, leaves an aching void in all our hearts.  [Loudonville (OH) Times:  11 September 1930, Vol. 11, No. 37]

Pheil, John -- FORMER BELLVILLE MAN AND WIFE END LIVES IN A NEW YORK HOTEL  -- Relatives and friends in Bellville and vicinity were shocked last week when word was received of the double suicide of John Pheil, former Bellville resident, and his wife at their home in New York City.  The bodies were found by neighbors.  On a table the police found a note, evidently composed by the couple, just before they lay down to end their lives together.  It read:  "We want nothing done, but our bodies cremated and the ashes scattered.  My family will pay all expenses."    Mr. Pheil, who was a lawyer, had been ill for several years and it is believed that when he told his wife he intended to end his life she agreed to accompany him on the final journey.  Gas was the means of bringing death to the couple.  Mrs. Pheil was formerly Miss Wallace, of Berea, where Mr. Pheil met her when both were attending college.  A brother, Bruce Pheil, of Mansfield, and a brother-in-law, Charles Gatton, of Bellville, went to New York, where they had the bodies cremated.   [Richland County Leader:  04 June 1920, Vol. 1, No. 26]

Phipps, Jacob F.

Phipps, Jacob F. -- A sad death was that which over took Jacob Phipps, of this city, Friday afternoon at 3:27 o'clock at Brink Haven.  He has been a railroad man for about 23 years and for about 10 years has been running on the T.W.V.&O. railroad.  He has been serving part of the time as extra conductor on the road and the rest of the time as flagman.  The accident which resulted in his sudden death occurred while he was serving as flagman on the west bound freight train, engine No. 78, caboose 646.  The conductor of the train was George F. Sullivan and the engineer was Frank Dell.  The train was just pulling into Brink Haven and was running at the rate of three miles an hour.  Mr. Phipps had set the brakes on the four rear cars of the train when in some way he lost his balance and fell beneath the train.  It is thought that he either slipped or that the bump of the cars running together as the train slacked speed, threw him under the cars.  The attention of Conductor Sullivan was called to the accident by the screams of a woman at a house near the track, who had seen the accident.  The train was stopped after it had run about 20 car lengths from the place where the injured man lay.  The woman was so excited that she could scarcely tell how it happened but she said that he had seemed to fall backwards.  The left leg of Mr. Phipps was cut off above the ankle, his right leg had some gashes and the foot was badly mangled.  He also had a bad gash in the back of his head.  He lived only 13 minutes after the accident occurred, dying at 3:40 o'clock before medical attendance could reach him.  An undertaker was summoned and the body placed in a rough box and brought to Mansfield on the train, on which he had run.  The train arrived here at 7 o'clock and the body was taken immediately to J.A. Niman's undertaking establishment, where the body was dressed.  A large crowd of people gathered during the evening to see the body and to inquire about the particulars of the accident.  About 10 o'clock Friday evening the body of the unfortunate man was removed to his home at 35 Miller Street.   Jacob Phipps was born at Butler 44 years ago and was the son of Mr. & Mrs. Samuel Phipps.  His father died a few years ago, but his mother is still living.  He has been actively engaged in the railroad service for years.  Before running on the T.W.V.&O. road he was a brakeman on the Pennsylvania running between Crestline and Ft. Wayne.  He leaves a wife and four children, three sons, Elda and Claude, who work at the Eclipse Stove works, and Samuel, and one daughter, Miss Verda.  He has three brothers, John Phipps, of Ft. Wayne, a conductor on the Pennsylvania and runs between Crestline and Ft. Wayne, Frank Phipps, of Andrews, Ind., who is a fireman on the Wabash railroad and Robert Phipps, who is a member of the Ft. Wayne police force.  Mr. Phipps was a member of Freedom Council, No. 63, Jr. O.U.A.M. and had $250 insurance in the order.  He was insured for $1000 in the Railroad Men's Volunteer Relief association.  Mr. Phipps stood high in the estimation of his fellow railroad men and of all with whom he was acquainted.  He had recently moved to his home on Miller Street and was pleasantly situated, when he was summoned without warning into the presence of death.  The blow is truly a sad one, not alone to his family and immediate relatives, but to all who knew and respected him.  The funeral services occur Sunday afternoon at 4 o'clock at his late home on Miller Street and will be conducted by the Rev. J.E. Lynn, of the Christian church.  The members of the Junior order and the railroad men will attend the funeral.  [Semi-Weekly News:  29 September 1896, Vol. 12, No. 79]  <<picture>>

Post, David -- In Memoriam.  David Post was born in Lexington, O., March 11, 1820, died April 23, 1892, aged 72 years, 1 month and 12 days.  He was married to Christina H. Hopp in 1861.  They had five children, four sons and one daughter.  She and her four children are left to mourn the loss of a kind father and a loving husband.  At the earnest solicitation of relatives and friends that are near and dear to our old early associate, David Post, whose remains now lie before us cold in death, is soon to be laid away by his neighbors and friends, followed by his sorrowing wife, brothers, sisters, sons and daughters of a former marriage and of the now living mother and widow.  The undersigned almost shrinks from the task allotted to him.  Imperfect as the history may be, I shall attempt to write what I know of the early life and character of our deceased brother.  Since the first day of December, 1840, the day of my majority, I have known David Post intimately and well.  At that time I found him at work learning the trade of blacksmithing with Albert Minerly and D.H. Young, of Shelby, in a small frame shop on the south west corner of the lost where now stands the brick building, known as the Peters Drug store.  It was there that we learned more of his early history, genuine manhood and true character.  Like others of his time he was schooled in all the hardships incident to the life of early settlers.  Reared in the log-cabin, the first-born, of a large family, David at an early age had much of the care and struggles placed upon his shoulders, and nobly did he perform his part.  When quite young he learned to swing the ax and wherever work of that kind was in demand "Dave" was always sought out with a confidence that his work would be honestly performed.  In after years, at the anvil, from early morn till night, his hammer never ceased to keep up the merry ring, nor did his fire on the forge die out.  We had the pleasure of being connected with him for more than five years at the blacksmithing business.  Even tempered, quiet and unassuming, he was always temperate, frugal, faithful and obliging.  Straight and honest in all his dealings, I never knew him to take advantage of any one, and in later years, when cares and adversity seemed to overtake him, he still made little complaint.  As a son and brother he was always kind and charitable.  As a husband and father those traits of character stand out most prominent.   Our old and long tried friend has completed his work.  It is finished.  He died as he had lived -- peaceful and uncomplaining.  <<poetry omitted>>  [Richland Shield & Banner:  07 May 1892]
