Roaks, Ezekiel -- A sad accident occurred on last Saturday morning at the crossing of the B.&O. Railroad, about a mile and a quarter North of Shelby, resulting in the instant death of Mr. Ezekiel Roaks, residing west of Plymouth.  He was coming to Shelby in an open buggy, and as he was about crossing the track, the train approached, and unaware of the danger, he met instant death.  Mr. Stephen Dillen, a track hand, having been sent down the road to flag trains, and caution them in running over track about being repaired, saw the danger impending, ran towards Mr. Roaks, calling to him, but was unable to rescue him.  The locomotive struck his buggy, demolishing it, and mangling the body about the head so terribly that the remains were for a long time not identified.  His horse escaped, and ran away.  He was carried along on the cowcatcher several hundred feet, and finally thrown off to the south side.  His body was brought to Shelby, and an inquest ordered.  For some time it was supposed to be Mr. James Doty that had been killed, but papers on the body finally showed that it was that of Mr. Roaks.  he had an appointment with Mr. Bloom at his office, on that day, and was on his way thither.  On leaving home he was cautioned by his wife, to beware of the cars, but in reply made some playful remark, and left never more to return to his family alive.  He was among the oldest citizens of the county -- aged about 84 years;  and remarkably active, attending to his business with the activity of youth.  His remains were taken to his home, and entered on Tuesday.  The occurrence cast a gloom over our village, numerous persons visiting the Town Hall, where the jury held its session.  The jury reported a verdict in accordance with the facts.  We have not the evidence given before it, but suppose the above to be about the facts as they occurred.  [Shelby Independent News:  28 November 1872, Vol. 5, No. 5]

Rodocker, W.A. -- W.A. Rodocker, a former resident of this place, but who lately removed with his family to Mansfield, where he engaged in the saloon business, committed suicide on Monday evening between seven and eight o'clock by cutting his throat from ear to ear with a razor.  The deed was committed in an alley in the rear of Crabs & Co's. Stables.  The motive leading to the commission of the act is only conjectural, but no doubt was largely attributable to mental depression arising from his change of location and failure in the business he had entered into.  The deceased was raised near Lexington and had been engaged in the blacksmith business for a number of years in this place and had been fairly successful, always providing liberally for his family and maintaining the confidence and respect of our citizens.  The criticisms of the daily press in commenting upon the cause leading to the act of self destruction in view of the facts we regard as unnecessarily harsh and not justified from his previous good character and exemplary conduct before his removing to Mansfield.  He leaves a wife and two children to whom our citizens extend their sincerest sympathy in their indeed dark and sad bereavement.  --  [BELLVILLE INDEPENDENT:  01 May 1890, Vol. III, No. 3]  **Another account of this death can be found in the Mansfield Evening News (Vol. 6, No. 46) on page 4 of the paper.  The article is titled "Dead By His Own Hand".  Additional details from this obituary include:  Born:  01 Jan. 1846.  Married for 20 years with a son (aged 17) and a daughter (aged 13).  **Yet another account of this death can be found in the Richland Shield & Banner dated 03 May 1890 (Vol. LXXII, No. 50), entitled "Cut His Throat".

Church in the east, and served it in the capacity of a local preacher.  His house was the headquarters of the Methodist in his neighborhood in those early days of the Church in America, and was one of its most earnest and zealous workers.  By industry and economy, he raised his large family in a highly respectable manner, and earned an independence for the evening of his days.  His second wife dying some years ago, he again married, for the third time, a very estimable and intelligent lady of near his own age, with whom he spent the remnant of his days in a retired and happy manner.  His descendants are numerous and highly respected, and upon the last anniversary of his birthday, they were all assembled together at the family mansion, where he addressed them in a truly patriarchal manner, an account of which then appeared in the News.  He died of old age, and came to his grave like a shock of corn fully ripe, and "his works do follow him."  His funeral took place on Wednesday last, on the Old Cemetery Grounds.  Services were conducted by his much esteemed former Pastor, Rev.

Rogers, Minta -- Shelby, Feb. 23 -- Never in the history of this city did excitement run so high as it did at 10 o'clock last night when it was learned that two estimable young people living near here were instantly killed by the cars.  Within a few moments after the accident an immense crowd had gathered at the scene of the double fatality to assist in caring for the remains of the unfortunates.  The victims of the accident are Warren Blackman and Miss Minta Rogers, both of whom live about two miles west of Shelby in the neighborhood of "Blackman's Grove", the owner of which is the father of the dead young man.  Mr. Blackman and Miss Rogers had been attending a lecture in the city opera house and at 10 o'clock entered their buggy and started west on Main Street.  Just as the animal and vehicle were on the B.&O. crossing, westbound B.&O. train, No. 47, which does not stop at the depot, crashed into the buggy and killed both occupants and the horse.  The train was stopped and a hurried investigation was made.  Nothing could be done for the young people, as they were killed instantly and very likely never knew what struck them.  Doctors who were summoned found that the back of the young man's head was crushed and Miss Rogers' head was mashed beyond recognition.  Both bodies were considerably bruised, although they were not mangled.  The remains were taken to the undertaking establishment of Sutter & Barkdall, where they were prepared for burial.  The funeral will be held at 11 a.m. Sunday from the Shelby Methodist church.  Rev. H. Place will officiate.  Warren Blackman was 19 years of age and was the son of George Blackman, one of the prominent farmers of this township.  The parents of the young man are nearly crazed with grief over his untimely death.  Miss Rogers, who was 21 years of age, was the daughter of Daniel Rogers and wife, and was one of the most popular young ladies of this section.  She leaves a host of friends to mourn her sudden and awful death.  There is no blame attached to the railroad company for the accident, as it is said that due warning was given.  On the other hand the young people had no idea a train was coming, as No. 47 was long past due.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  03 March 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 42]

Rosen, Sadie -- Miss Sadie Rosen, a young girl, got off the Baltimore & Ohio train at 6:50 o'clock, Monday evening, and after taking a cab at the depot, died of hemorrhage of the lungs before she could be conveyed to her friends.  The sad and unusual occurrence created a good deal of a stir in the north side especially after the remains had been conveyed to Niman's undertaking rooms.  Miss Rosen is the daughter of Joseph Rosen, who is employed by Rusk Bros.  Rosen boards at Ryland's on East Second Street.  The family formerly resided near Hayesville.  The girl's mother died of consumption about one year ago and after the family had removed to this city.  The daughter, Sadie, is 16 years of age, and has been afflicted with consumption for some time.  It was known that the girl's death was only a matter of a short time.  About six weeks ago she went to North Baltimore to visit an uncle and his family.  During the time she was at North Baltimore, she was under the care of a physician.  A few days ago she expressed herself to the effect that she had not long to live and that she would like to get back to Mansfield before the end came.  She was not able to travel alone and accordingly yesterday afternoon Miss Rosen's cousin, J.A. Jeffers, of North Baltimore, brought her home.  Upon leaving the train at the B.&O. depot the girl was placed in a cab, but before it started away from the depot the hemorrhage began.  She was quickly taken to Dr. Stevens' office near by, but died within five minutes.  The remains were taken to Niman's undertaking rooms in the cab.  It required some time to locate the father of the dead girl, but he was found about 8 o'clock.  The girl has a sister named Miss Libbie Rosen.  Sadie Rosen at one time was employed at Hautzenroeder & Homberger's factory.  As the father and daughters had been boarding and had no place to take the remains they were allowed to remain at Niman's.  Coroner Baughman viewed the remains of the dead girl, but decided the cause of death was evident and there was no need of an inquest.  The remains were taken to Hayesville this afternoon for burial.  --  [Semi-Weekly News (Mansfield):  18 February 1898, Vol. 14, No. 14]

Ross, James -- DEATH'S CALL CAME SUDDENLY TO JAMES ROSS, RAILWAY MAIL CLERK FOR THIRTY YEARS -- HEAT TROUBLE CAUSED HIS DEMISE -- For Thirty Years a Resident of Lucas, Where He was Born, He Came to Mansfield -- Twelve Years Ago Where He Has Since Resided and Where He died Friday Morning -- James Ross, who has been a railway mail clerk on the Pennsylvania for the past thirty years, died very suddenly at his home, 26 Lamberton street, Friday morning. Mr. Ross, who was about 72 years of age, left the house about 7 o'clock to feed the chickens. His continued absence caused Mrs. Ross to become worried and after about three-quarters of an hour she went out to see what was detaining him. She called, but received no reply, and upon entering the chicken yard she saw Mr. Ross seated upon the ground with his head thrown back against the gate. Even then she did not realize that he was dead and asked him what was the matter. When she received no reply she went to him and saw that life was extinct. Neighbors assisted in getting the body to the house and coroner Goodman, who was summoned, conducted an inquest. Death was caused by heart trouble, from which Mr. Ross had been a sufferer for a number of years. When he arose Friday morning he complained of not having slept as well as usual, but attributed this to the fact that he had eaten a piece of mince pie before retiring. Otherwise he seemed to feel as well as usual and his death came entirely unexpected. He was born in Lucas March 16, 1835, and resided there until about 12 years ago when he came to Mansfield, where he has since lived. For a time he was engaged in the dry goods business in Lucas, but later secured a position as railway mail clerk and has been running between this city and Toledo for about thirty years. At the age of about 19 years he was in a runaway which resulted in the fracture of his right foot in such a way that the foot finally had to be amputated above the ankle. In 1861 he was united in marriage with Amanda j. Hughes, of Newville, who, with three of the seven children born to them, survives. The children are Sherman and Miss Carrie Ross, of this city, and Ira Ross, of Toledo. He is also survived by three sisters, Mrs. E. H. France, of this city, and Mrs. B. R.

Rothrack, Clarence -- Plymouth, Aug. 5.  This morning a jolly picnic party from Ontario passed through town on their way to Seaton's park.  About 1 o'clock in the afternoon, wile some of he boys were in bathing, one of their number, Clarence Rothrack, aged 16, was seized with cramps and cried for help.  One of the boys who was near him went to his assistance and met with the usual treatment at the hands of the drowning boy -- being seized with a death grip and only by sheer force did he free himself after being drawn under the water twice.  No other help being at hand the poor boy sank from sight and measures were at once taken to find the body;  which was raised about a half hour later.  The unfortunate lad's parents reside at Ontario, this county.  It seems that they are not at home at present being on a visit with friends near Alta.  The sad news was telephoned to Ontario and about 6 o'clock the body was taken in Smith's wagonette.  The sad accident is greatly deplored by Mr. Seaton and it is the first case of drowning since the park as been open to the public.  [Mansfield News:  06 August 1899]

Rothrack, Clarence -- Ontario.  Our village was thrown into a state of sadness on Saturday evening by the receipt of a telephone message from Plymouth announcing the drowning of Clarence Rothtrock, one of a party of young people who had gone to a resort, near Plymouth.  The party consisted of twenty-eight members of the young men's and young ladies' classes of the M.E. Sunday school of this place.  Clarence, with some of the other young men, was bathing in the artificial lake on the grounds, he having crossed to the other side of the water from which he had entered, when he was attacked with cramps, called for help, but before it reached him he had gone to the bottom to rise no more.  The remains arrived home at 9 o'clock.  The funeral took place Monday at 10 o'clock.  Mr. & Mrs. Rothtrock, parents of the deceased, were visiting in Hancock County (OH).  They were notified and returned home at once. Clarence was about 16 years of age, was a favorite with everybody, and exemplary young man, useful in the church and Sunday school, was very studious, industrious and without faults.  The returning party was a sad sight -- all broken hearted.  An older brother, Amos, and two sisters, Belle and Lydia, had remained at home and the sad news was imparted to them by Miss Minnie Au, whose sister Gayle, had accompanied Clarence on this outing trip that ended so sadly.  [Mansfield News:  07 August 1899]

Rowe, Frank M. -- Frank M. Rowe died at his residence, No. 48 Sturges Avenue, on Saturday morning last, aged 43 years, 7 months and 2 days, after a protracted illness and was followed to his temporary resting place in the vault at the cemetery on Monday afternoon by a large circle of mourning friends. Mr. Rowe was born at Wooster and was the youngest of five brothers who reached man's estate. Early in life he learned the printer's trade. At the breaking out of the war, in common with many of the patriotic young men of Wayne County, he enlisted in the 102 O.V.I. and served over three years. Returning to his home at Wooster he took charge of the news room in the Republican office, then owned by Enos Foreman, now of Cleveland. Mr. H.G. White, of the Millersburgh Republican was then foreman of the job office, and it was during the administration of these gentlemen, in the fall of 1866, that the writer entered the office as an apprentice, and served directly under Mr. Rowe for about three years. A few years later, Mr. Rowe drifted to Lafayette, Ind., and thence to Akron, Ohio, where he and his brother, John, a leading minister in the Church of Christ, and at present editor of the organ of that denomination at Cincinnati, undertook the publication of the Akron Argus. Insufficient capital and strong opposition in the Beacon, caused them to shortly afterwards dispose of the Argus. Mr. Rowe then came to Mansfield in answer to an invitation extended by the owners of this paper and accepted the responsibility of the news department in 1877. Since that period and up to the latter part of August he was continuously connected with THE HERALD, and also had charge of the local correspondence of the Cleveland Leader and Cincinnati Commercial. After an acquaintance with Frank M. Rowe extending over a period of about eighteen years, we can testify to his uniform honesty of purpose, and integrity of character. Seldom aggressive but always progressive. Never a brilliant writer, ever a careful chronicler of facts. In private life his faults were few and his virtues many. He was never heard to utter an oath. He was never known to tell a falsehood. He never permitted himself to get angry. His habits were as regular as clockwork. And we believe that no man ever saw him take a drink of intoxicating liquor. He was distinguished for his purity of heart and honesty of intent. Through life he kept the even tenor of his way, and died as he had lived, a plain, modest, upright citizen. Would that the world had more like him in it. He leaves a wife, one child and two step-children to mourn his loss. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 30 October 1884, Vol. 34, No. 50]

Rowland, James -- DEATH OF JAMES ROWLAND. The subject of this writing was born in Greentown, near Perrysville, Ohio, on the 23rd of March 1830. Died with consumption in Lexington, Aug. 26, 1859, aged 29 years, 5 months and 3 days. For nearly a year before his departure, he was a consistent, zealous, exemplary member of the Baptist Church. During his protracted sickness, he frequently said to his mother that he had made peace with his God and was anxious to be a rest with the Savior. He loved to have Christians surround his dying couch, and talk, as Christians out to talk – of Heaven – of Jesus. He loved to hear songs of praise, and as long as his enfeebled lungs could endure the exertion, he joined with his brother, sister and friends in singing. During the last stages of disease, emaciation of body was extreme, yet his mind was clear, active, unimpaired. James, though young, had seen much of life, he had enjoyed its pleasures – endured its reverses – overcome its temptations. His undeviating integrity united with active business qualifications secured him pecuniary success; and to his family, he was at once father and a son. As we stood by the death bed of this young friend, we fully appreciated the following lines: How lonely the place, how dreary, now chill, Where the pangs of disease are lingering still, And the life pulse is fluttering in death. Yes, we even thought it strange that one so young – that one with prospects so flattering – that one who had long been the solace of a widowed mother, should be called from the companionship of youthful associates to lay down and die. But God’s ways are above our ways, and we are informed, “He doeth all things well,” From the chamber of Omnipotence He issued a mandate for James to come up higher. No physician’s aid – no maternal care – no filial anxiety – no friendly attention could drive away the disease which was feeding upon his frame. The last hour of his life at last came, though not unlooked for – not unprepared for. His lamp was trimmed. He was ready to cross Jordan’s rolling waves. He was ready to lift the curtain which bounds this life, and enter upon vacations of a grander and more florious life. He now joins his father in celestial joys. He now inhales God’s purified hair. He now basks in heaven’s resplendent glories. Stay there James, we would not call thee from the companionship of they father, from the grandeur of celestial fields, from the choirs whose soft melodies beat around the “great white throne” from the immediate presence of the Great God, to again dwell amid the vexations, turmoils, contentions and miseries of this cursed world. -- E.J.

Rowland, Mary A. (Moody) -- Mrs. Mary A. Rowland was born on the 15th. of September, 1803, in Shippensburgh, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania.  Her father was the Rev. John Moody, D.D., who preached for upward of fifty years in the Presbyterian church of Middle Spring.  Her husband was the Rev. James Rowland, who preceded her by death, the 20th. of last December, to whom, during the last years of his life, when confined to his room by debility and acute suffering, she so devotedly ministered;  and from whom she has been so short a time divided.  Her sister and her children bear witness to her whole life being one of untiring patience, self-sacrifice, and intense anxiety for the welfare of those she loved.  Her home was always made cheerful by her sweet Christian spirit;  and many will recall the social pleasure derived from her generous Christian hospitality.  Her active mind, clear judgment strong affection for her friends, and her constant forgetfulness of self in her anxiety to secure the comfort and happiness of others, were marked characteristics in her quiet and unobtrusive life.  In the words of a divine writer, "She looked well to the ways of her household, and ate not the bread of idleness;  her children rise up and call her blessed;  her husband also, and he praiseth her."  During her last sickness, which terminated in her death, and was characterized at times by severe suffering, she exhibited great patience and a full acquiescence in the will of God.  During the last day of her life she frequently said, "I will go to sleep now", and at the time of her departure (7 p.m.) she was calm and peaceful, and quietly fell asleep in Jesus to awake in her Father's house.  The following action of the Presbytery of Wooster, in session at Shelby, April 30th., 1874, in regard to the death of Rev. James Rowland, has not been published in our local papers, and will be of interest to many in this community.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  17 October 1874]

Ruess, Henry A. -- Dr. Henry A. Ruess, a well known and highly esteemed physician of this city, dropped dead Wednesday afternoon about 3:30 o'clock while on a professional visit to a patient on West Fourth Street.  The announcement of his sudden death was received with much regret by his host of friends and acquaintances in the city.  Dr. Ruess has been suffering more or less for some time past with heart trouble, but of late has seemed quite well.  He was very busy Wednesday afternoon and when he left home to visit a patient at the home of Mrs. J. Aberle, on West Fourth Street, he was feeling as well as usual.  Death came to him suddenly, yet it must have been painless, on account of being almost instantaneous for, as he was bending over listening to the patient's heart action, he suddenly fell to the floor.  It was thought that he had only fainted and efforts were made to revive him, but to no avail.  Drs. McArthur and Loughridge were called, but they found that Dr. Ruess had passed away.  It is thought that he died almost immediately after he fell.  Later he was removed to his home, 126 South Main Street.  Dr. Ruess was a quiet, earnest and unostentatious man, yet had a strong character and was beloved by those who knew him.  He has been a resident of Mansfield for a number of years and has practiced his profession.  Dr. Ruess was born Oct. 4, 1831, at Ulm, Wuerttemburg, Germany, and was therefore in his 67th. year.  His native town of Ulm contained a splendid gymnasium and in this school his early education was secured.  On finishing his course in the gymnasium, he entertained Tuebingen University, a celebrated institution of Germany.  Here he graduated in his literary and medical courses.  In May, 1857, he was united in marriage with Miss Friedricka Boettcher, who survives him.  A year or so later Dr. and Mrs. Ruess came to this country and resided several years in Columbus, after which they moved to Mansfield, which has been their home for about 37 years.  To them were born five children, of whom four daughters are living.  They are Miss Louise Ruess, Misses Bertha and Sophie Ruess, teachers in the Mansfield public schools, and Mrs. Pauline Fiedler, also of this city.  There are also three grandchildren.  Funeral services Saturday afternoon at 3 o'clock at his late home, 126 South Main Street.  --  [Mansfield Semi-Weekly News:  22 July 1898, Vol. 14, No. 61]

Rummell, Sadie -- LUCAS – One of the melancholy events which has occurred in our village for a long time was the death of Mrs. Sadie Rummell, wife of the druggist, Mr. J. H. Rummell.  She was but twenty-one years of age at the time of her death and was so favorably known by everyone that any endeavor to emulate her character here is unnecessary as she was raised and passed the greater portion of her life in this community.  Relative to her pleasant manners and other fine sociable and agreeable qualities, we can speak from a personal acquaintance as it was many times our happy and well remembered privilege of being favored with her society, little dreaming that the unhappy duty of recording her death would ever devolve upon us.  Although greatly saddened at her early departure we feel satisfied that every one knowing her will ever recall her to memory with sorrowful hearts and feeling of painful regret.  The funeral services were conducted by the Rev. Jones, our Congregational minister, whose text was:  Set thy house in order for thou shalt surely die.”  Music was led by E.S. Ferguson who has received many compliments for the able manner in which his professional services were rendered.   [Ohio Liberal:  06 June 1883]
