Taylor, Andrew Franklin -- The subject of this sketch, Andrew Franklin Taylor, was the eldest son of Thomas W. and Barbara Taylor, of Richland County, and was born to them on the 6th. day of January, 1850.  He was admitted as a member of Clay's congregation Evangelical Lutheran church, then under the pastoral care of Rev. Isaa Culler [sic], when about fifteen years of age.  He was married on the 7th. of June, 1888, to Miss Melissa Wertz, daughter of Samuel Wertz, of this county.  Bro. Taylor was an officer in the church at the time of his death and we are able to say of him truthfully that he was faithful to duty in all the positions he was called upon to fill.  He was a workman of whom we are not ashamed and he will be missed in this community by all who knew him.  He was always ready to lend a helping hand to all who desired assistance.  For several days prior to his death he suffered intensely, at the same time manifesting much patience and resignation to the will of his Heavenly Father.  On Friday, April 22d., 1892, when the grim messenger came it found him ready and about 11 o'clock in the morning his spirit took its flight to the realms of light and joy, aged 42 years, 3 months and 16 days.  His funeral took place from the Clay's church on Monday, April 25th., attended by a large congregation.  The services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. George A. Lee, who improved the time in the use of the text found in 1 Samuel, 20th. Chapter, 18th. verse, "And Jonathan said to David tomorrow is the new moon;  and thou shalt be missed, cause thy seat will be empty."  His body was buried in the cemetery at Mansfield to await the resurrection of the just.  The song service was very appropriate and well rendered.  The choir was made up of members from the congregations composing the charge, led by Wm. Rohle and Miss Iona Shaver as organist.  -- G.A.L.  [Richland Shield & Banner:  30 April 1892]

Taylor, David -- David Taylor, the subject of this sketch, was born in Bedford County, Pa., March 9, 1813, and died Aug. 13, 1890.  He therefore was 77 years, 5 months and 4 days old.  In the year 1837 he married Eliza Calhoon.  Of his happy union, for such it was, ten children were born, of whom three died when young in years.  The seven remaining are, Alexander, Sarah J., Margaret, William, Noble, Samantha and John, all of whom are highly respected citizens of Richland County.  Of the grandchildren there are 24, great-grandchildren four.  Mr. Taylor was the sixth son of nine brothers, tow of whom survive him.  Here is a coincidence which happens in few families:  Mr. T. had one brother just four years older to a day and one sister (only sister too) just four years younger to a day than he.  They have all preceded him to the quiet city of the dead except two brothers.  In lineage he was Irish, in politics Democratic, in religion of the Presbyterian persuasion.  Mr. Taylor and faithful wife were successful in accumulating considerable property and he certainly was one of those men who won success by earnest, honest and persistent effort which always succeeds in the end.  Yes, Mr. T. was a man who possessed those qualities of true earnestness and indomitable will power, great in moral courage, that merited the respect and confidence of his fellow men.  As an evidence of this he was twice land appraiser in his own township and Commissioner of Richland County two terms.  It was during his official relations with the county as Commissioner that the splendid (though unostentatious) court house which adorns so beautifully your city of Mansfield was built.  His truly, was a rugged honesty and his integrity was for all times, all places and occasions, as his legion of friends in all parties were ready and willing to attest, such integrity as could resist storms of temptation with event rasping poverty for a companion.  How much our country at large needs such a type of uprightness in all our relations.  How often since our coming among you this year, unbidden and unheralded, has the weired [sic.] spirit of the glass and scythe entered our village and community.  Almost every week some one has heard his dread summons and gone hence forever.  How suggestive this of the uncertainty, the instability, yea the utter helplessness of life and of life's highest hopes and ambitions!  And how solemn the admonition so to discharge our duties here as to secure the rewards of the great hereafter.  The aged companion who yet survives her husband and all the children have the sympathy of all their many friends in this their sad bereavement, and when the volume of life is sealed with the clasp of death may we all meet to rebloom in another world of joy resplendent of of happiness supernal.  The funeral was conducted by Rev. Grimsley of the M.P. Church.  Text -- Job, 14th. Chapter and the 14th. verse, "If a man die shall he live again?".  --  [Worthington Enterprise:  21 August 1890, Vol. II, No. 38]

Taylor, David Alonzo

Taylor, Edwin C. -- Edwin C. Taylor, fourth son of Capt. W.H. Taylor and wife, died at 6 o'clock last evening at the family residence on West Fourth Street.  Ed has been attending college at Media, Pa., but did not return there after the Christmas vacation owing to his being in ill health.  He sustained a sun-stroke last summer while at Chicago and the doctors thought that had something to do with his illness and advised him to rest at home for a few months.  Ed. was down street last Monday morning and when he went he complained of being sick and took to his bed.  The doctors did not know for several days the cause of his illness but soon decided that it was bowel complaint.  The young sufferer realized that he could not live and expressed no fear of death.  He bid farewell to his relatives yesterday afternoon and became unconscious.  Ten minutes before his death he stepped from his bed and started for the door, but was placed in bed again by his brother.  He died very peacefully and it was several minutes before his friends by his bedside realized that Ed. Taylor was no more.  Ed. Taylor's death was a great shock to his relatives and friends, who mourn his untimely demise.  He was born in Sidney, O., Feb. 18, 1874.  He was a member of the Presbyterian church and also of the Y.M.C.A.  He was second Lieutenant of Co. M., O.N.G., and will be greatly missed by his comrades.  The funeral, which will be private, will be held at the residence tomorrow morning, after which the remains will be taken to Sidney, where they will be interred Wednesday morning.  His brothers, Howard and Rolla, who live at Adrain, Mich., had been notified of his sickness but did not arrive until after his death.  The young man had his life insured only last December for $10,000.  --  [Richland Shield & Banner:  03 February 1894, Vol. LXXVI, No. 38]

Taylor, Henry -- DIED -- On Sabbath Evening, March 20th., 1870, at the residence of his son-in-law, Dr. William R. Bricker, in Shelby, Ohio, Mr. HENRY TAYLOR, aged 75 years, 1 month and 7 days.  Mr. Taylor was born in Fairfield County, Conn., February 13, 1795;  removed to Sharon Township, Richland County, O., in May, 1817, and has resided in Richland County ever since.  He was married in March, 1820, to Miss Evaline Ayers, who died September 4, 1866.  Thus has departed another of the old pioneers, of what was then Sharon, but now included in Jackson Township.  Among the first to remove into the Township, he took up his residence on the farm he owned ever since.  His residence was known as "Taylor's Corners", where the election was held, and other Township business transacted, until the division of the Township -- and for aught we know, some years after.  For a number of years, we believe, he kept a house of entertainment, and being upon the State road, and directly upon the line to the markets in early days upon the lake, he became perhaps more widely known than any one of the early pioneers yet living.  There are many still living, who have frequently enjoyed the hospitalities of Mr. & Mrs. Henry Taylor.  It was our good fortune to have been one of such, fifteen years ago, and the recollection of it has never, and will never, be effaced from our memory.  Both have gone from among us.  Another link is broken that binds the past to the present.  Funeral services were conducted at the residence of Dr. Bricker, on Tuesday afternoon, by Rev. Mr. Brown of the Universalist denomination, in the faith of which, the deceased lived and died.  His remains were deposited in the new Cemetery, attended by a large number of relatives, friends and acquaintances.  [Shelby Independent News:  24 March 1870, Vol. 2, No. 21]

Taylor, Hugh -- Thinking he had short and killed his brother Harris, following a quarrel at the latter's home, Hugh Taylor went to his brother Frank's farm home and hung himself with a rope halter tied to the rafters of the barn Monday evening.  His brother, Frank, feeling uneasy because Hugh had left the house several times started on a search about 10 o'clock last evening and about midnight found the body of his brother hanging to the rafters, lifeless.  Hugh Taylor, aged 216 years, son of Mr. & Mrs. Jack Taylor, residing about seven miles east of Butler, was one of fourteen children.  His parents and his brothers, Frank and Harris, live near by in the same vicinity.  Hugh was a single man.  According to information received from Butler, Hugh had been drinking and went to his brother Harris' home early last evening.  They became engaged in a quarrel resulting in Hugh pulling a revolver from his pocket and firing a shot at his brother.  The bullet did not strike Harris' body but passed over, singing the hair on top of his head.  The bullet lodged in the wall of the room.  Hugh thinking he had killed his brother fled from the house and went to the home of his other brother, Frank.  He did not relate any of his experiences at Frank's home, but seemed very uneasy, which Frank had noticed.  He left the house several times and finally the last time he did not return.  Frank being suspicious started out to search for his brother about 10 o'clock.  It was not until about midnight that he located him and when he did his eyes fell upon his brother's dead body hanging to a rope extending from the rafters in the barn.  Evidently Hugh had made preparations for his hanging when he left the house earlier in the evening.  It is stated that Hugh never was known of having intentions of taking is own life but the dre___ in is mind of he being _____ of his brother, Harris, c_____ commit the deed.  When the news reached _____ his mother was prostrate ______ lying at her home in a ____ tion.  The Taylors resid_____ cinity of Sandridge church ______ Butler in Ashland County.  [Mansfield Shield:  04 February 2013]

Teegarden, Dr. -- Dr. Teegarden died at the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Smith, Marysville, Sutter Co., Cal., on June 14th., aged 75 years. He had been hale and hearty up to within a few months of his death. Dr. Teegarden was born in Columbiana Co., Ohio, in 1809. From there he removed to Mansfield, where for a number of years he practiced his profession with marked success until 1849, when he went to California and located in Marysville, and again engaged in the practice of medicine. A few years later he was joined by his family, and tiring of medicine he purchased a tract of land just east of Marysville, erected buildings and set out the place in orchards which were among the first ventures of the kind in that part of the State. He was also a large owner, if not sole proprietor of the original Buckeye Mills. Just as the fruit business became very profitable, the first rush of debris in 1862 nearly destroyed the orchard, which was a few years later wholly ruined. The loss was irreparable and the Doctor was compelled to turn his attention to other means for a living, which he did with varying success until he purchased the tract of choice bottom land just above Marysville. Here he engaged in the nursery and fruit business which proved very successful, and the Doctor thinking the worst was over invested largely in a tract of land on the Yuba river about five miles east of Marysville, with the intention of converting it into orchards and vineyards. He constructed levees around the tract, but the rising Yuba soon overtopped the levees and left the place a total wreck, covering it with sand from one to six feet in depth. Again turning to this side he set out the remainder of his bottom land, some 30 acres, to choice variety of fruit last winter which id doing remarkably well, and which has engrossed his attention for the past year. Dr. Teegarden was a man of unswerving honor and rectitude and closed a long life without a stain upon his name; he has filled many stations of trust and honor with great credit and fidelity. He represented Yuba county one term in the Assembly and Yuba and Sutter jointly in the Senate for four years. He was also Receiver in the Marysville land office one term. He had many warm personal friends in Sutter county as well as Yuba, and was well and favorably known throughout the State. His wife preceded him to the tomb a few years ago; his living children are one son and three daughters, namely: Van Teegarden, Mrs. A.D. Starr, Mrs. J.H. Bowman and Mrs. Wm. Smith. -- [THE MANSFIELD HERALD: 17 July 1884, Vol. 34, No. 35]

Teeter, Philip -- A very sudden death was that which overtook Philip Teeter, a farmer of Worthington Township, this morning about 6:30 o'clock at the home, in this city, of his daughter, Mrs. W.W. Kanaga, at 147 Harker Street.  In company with his wife, he had come to this city yesterday to visit their daughters, Mrs. N.C. Manner and Mrs. W.W. Kanaga and had spent the night at W.W. Kanaga's home.  He arose this morning apparently as well as usual and had eaten his breakfast and withdrawn from his place at the table to a chair in another part of the room when he was suddenly stricken with heart failure and fell over.  He moaned several times and his wife and the other relatives came to his aid and tried to render relief, but he passed away in a few minutes without having spoken after he was stricken.  Dr. Stevens was summoned but found that the spark of life had fled.  Mr. Teeter had been subject to trouble with his heart for about a year past and felt that the trouble would eventually cause his death, though that the summons would come while he was away from home on a visit and apparently feeling well, was not thought of by his friends and the death, so sudden and so unexpected, comes with keenest grief to the bereaved wife and children.  Philip Teeter was born in Worthington Township, Dec. 7, 1837.  He was married May 21, 1860 and to him and his wife were born 11 children, all of whom with their mother survive.  Mr. Teeter was a farmer and thresher and was actively engaged in these occupations until the increasing weight of years caused him to leave much of this work to others.  The farm on which he lived is situated 2˝ miles north west of Butler.  The names of the sons and daughters are:  Mrs. A.E. Rummel, of Lucas, Mrs. A.H. Quail, of Sac City, Ia., Mrs. O.F. Beveridge, of Little Washington, Mrs. N.C. Manner and Mrs. William W. Kanaga, of this city, Mrs. J.J.

Thomas, Gaylord -- Word was received in this city this morning announcing that Gaylord Thomas, well known to nearly every one in Mansfield, died at the home of his sister in Mt. Vernon at 8 o'clock last evening.  Mr. Thomas went to Mt. Vernon in September last and made his home with his sister, Mrs. Henrietta Wolf, and her son and daughter.  Gaylord Thomas was born in Mt.

D, 102 regiment, but on account of ill health was compelled to resign on Feb. 18, 1863.  He came back to Mansfield and was married the same year to Sarah Cox, a daughter of James Cox and wife, and a sister of Jud J. and Wm. E. Cox, of this city.  One child, William, was the fruit of the marriage and his sad death two years ago probably hastened the demise of both his parents, Mrs. Thomas dying Dec. 23, 1892.  After the death of his son Mr. Thomas, who had been in the restaurant business on Third Street for over 20 years, sold out and has since lived a quiet and unassuming life.  Having lived in Mansfield ever since a young child he knew and was known by nearly every resident of the city and was beloved by all.  His disease, consumption, has troubled him for a long time, the rea---- cause of his resignation from the army being lung trouble.  Mr. Thomas was a member of the Methodist church and at his own request the funeral will be held at the church at 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.  Rev. Duston Kemble, Rev. G.M. Kemp and Rev. R.T.

Thomas, William -- Early yesterday morning the inhabitants of the city were astonished to learn that William Thomas, popularly known "Spinks" had been found dead in bed.  The cause of his death assigned at that time, by the more excited individuals, was suicide, but later examinations by physicians and the testimony of the family show that he died a natural, although sudden, death.  The particulars, as far as can be learned are about as follows:  Gaylord Thomas, father of the deceased, has been suffering from a combination of diseases for several years and has been in the habit of taking morphine capsules to quiet his nerves.  The most of these have been purchased at Barton's drug store, corner of Main and Third streets, and various members of the family frequently calling with the prescription and receiving the sedative.  A dozen of these capsules, containing three-fourths of a grain of morphine each, had been purchased Saturday afternoon, only half of them being taken away at the time, and when Will called for the remainder about 5:30, the clerk, as he had often done before, gave him the remaining half dozen, asking, as usual, if he wanted it for his father, to which Thomas replied "yes".  That was the last seen of him on the streets, as he immediately went to his parents' home, on West Third Street, where he was residing and went to his room.  Yesterday morning, as he did not arise at the usual hour, his parents attempted to awake him, but were unable to do so.  Entrance could not be gained to his room, as the door was locked and bolted.  Mr. Thomas, Sr., then secured the assistance of John Bertolucci, the Italian fruit vendor, who, in company with another gentleman, gained entrance to the room by a window, when it was found that the young man was dead.  Dr. Ecki was called in and made an examination.  Five of the capsules were found on the table, conclusively proving that Mr. Thomas had only taken one, which would be insufficient to cause death.  The physician then expressed his opinion that he came to his death by other causes, whereupon the father stated that the young man was occasionally attacked with severe heart trouble.  This, no doubt, was the direct cause of his death and the condition of the body, when found showed conclusively that he had died early in the evening.  As the parents are satisfied in regard to the cause of death they desire no post mortem examination to be held.  The deceased was born July 18th., 1863, consequently he was about 28 years of age at the time of his death.  The funeral services will be held at the family residence on West Third Street, tomorrow evening, at 6 o'clock, Rev. H.A. Sumrell officiating.  -- [Richland Shield & Banner:  04 July 1891, Vol. LXXIV, No. 7]

Thrush, Charles Steele -- Charles Steele Thrush, son of Mr. and Mrs. Steele Thrush, committed suicide at the home of his parents, near Alta, about 10:30 o'clock Saturday morning.  The deceased was about 20 years of age and ended his existence by shooting himself.  The Thrush family resides on the farm of W.F. Cairns.  Young Thrush has been ill for about six months and partly owing to this illness he became despondent and refused to talk to people.  It is said the young man was also something of a religious fanatic.  Friday evening about 6 o'clock the young man began crying and it was with difficulty that he could be consoled.  Some of the near neighbors were called and soon got the young man in a better frame of mind.  Great difficulty was experienced with him again at bedtime, however, and it is stated that it was after 1 o'clock Saturday morning before his folks could persuade him to retire.  This morning he commenced to cry again, but appeared better later.  About 9 o'clock this morning he went into the house, after being in the granary for some time and complained of feeling badly.  Dr. Shipley, the physician, who had been attending him, was sent for and went to the farm house and prescribed for the patient.  About 10:30 o'clock the young man asked his sister, who is 12 years of age, to play "Nearer, My God, to Thee".  She did so and while she was playing Charles stepped into another room and it is supposed procured a loaded 32-calibre revolver.  After the selection on the organ was finished the girl left the room, but had no sooner done so until three pistol reports were heard in rapid succession.  When the members of the family ran into the room they found the victim sitting on the sofa with his head back against the wall and dead.  One bullet had gone into the right temple, another through the right hand and it was not ascertained where the third went.  The bullet in the head must have produced almost instant death.  Coroner Bushnell was sent for and took the testimony of a number of witnesses and also examined the dead man.  The official will undoubtedly render a verdict of suicide.  The family consists of Mr. and Mrs. Steele Thrush, two sons and six daughters.  The father, Steele Thrush, is about 80 years of age and is well known throughout the country.  --  [Bellville Messenger:  09 October 1903, Vol. 11, No. 40 as reprinted from the Mansfield News]

Timanus, Warren -- Bellville.  Simon Hoover, of this vicinity, has received letters from Sandhurst, Australia, informing him of the death and burial of his brother-in-law, Warren Timanus, in June, 1884, at the age of 57 years.  Mr. Timanus spent his early days in this neighborhood, and no doubt is known by many of our older residents.  He left here to seek his fortune in the gold fields of California, and afterwards joined a company whose objective point was Victoria, the southeastern portion of Australia, a land as much as seven thousand miles southwest of San Francisco.  At the time of leaving he wrote a letter to his folks here in the East, but from that time up to the time of his death, a lapse of 31 years, no news of his whereabouts were received, and his friends had long since concluded that he was dead.  The message being the news of his death, was cheerful in the sense that it revealed to his friends here the place of his abode for upwards of three decades.  After his arrival at Victoria, Mr. Timanus married an Australian woman, who died just one week later than he did, leaving five children to mourn the loss of father and mother.  He was alternately successful and unsuccessful during his life.  At times he commanded much money, but through speculation would sometimes lose.  His children write that they are comfortably situated, are in need of nothing, have good Christian privileges, and are well respected.  An interesting correspondence is now going on between them and their Richland County relatives.  The mother of the deceased lies buried in Washington Township.  --  [Bellville Star:  08 January 1885, Vol. 8, No. 15]

After John Timmerman died, Anna (Herrick) Timmerman married John 'Ed' Adams and by the 1910 census they had adopted a daughter, Violet, born about 1906. Violet disappears from the Mansfield records in 1941, where she was listed in her mother's obit "surviving, an adopted daughter, Violet Adams, of Mansfield" and I have not been able to find out what happened to her after that. She was (by adoption) a half-sister of this Dora Timmerman. Any help in locating Violet Adams would be appreciated.  Submitted by Margaret.  [MANSFIELD NEWS JOURNAL:  19 May 1965, p. 3]

Tinkey, Margaret A. (Martin) -- Again Bellville has been startled by a suicide.  On last Friday at about one o'clock word was brought to town that Mrs. James Tinkey, living about 2 miles south of town, had committed suicide by hanging herself.  Drs. Sampsell and Austin and Coroner Stofer were notified and were soon at the scene of the tragedy.  The act was committed about a quarter of a mile from the house at the edge of a strip of woods.  The body was found hanging to the limb of a large chestnut tree, and almost cold in death.  Immediately after its discovery the neighbors were notified and before the arrival of the coroner had the body cut down and were taking it to the house.  Mr. Tinkey was away from the home at the time but the children tell the following relative to the affair.  Mrs. Tinkey had prepared dinner for the family and sat down to the table apparently in her usual frame of mind.  After eating a few bites she got up from the table and started up stairs.  One of the children spoke to her and said "Mother, if you don't eat more you will starve".  She laughed and said "Oh, I guess not", and passed on up stairs.  While up there she must have secured the rope and taking off her shoes slipped down and out through the dining room without attracting any notice.  Her preparations for the act must have been made very deliberately.  She had taken a comb with her and carefully combed her hair, then laying the comb and glasses at the foot of the tree adjusted the rope about her neck.  The rope was about 10 or 12 feet long.  She tied it in a double knot, rather loosely about her neck, threw one end over a large limb (which was about three feet above her head) and tied the two ends together, drawing them as close as possible.  When found her feet was resting on the ground, her knees slightly bend, the body already growing cold.  She had not yet been missed from the house.  George the oldest boy at home, had been about the house and barn sometime after eating his dinner and had started for the hay field.  In passing the tree he happened to notice his mother apparently standing under it, but looking closer he saw the real state of affairs.  He immediately gave the alarm and the neighbors responding very quickly.  R. Evarts, Jr., Geo. Miller, Rees Miller, John Worner and A. Oldfield were the first to reach the place and immediately cut the body down.  On Saturday morning a post mortem examination was held by Coroner Stofer and Dr. Sampsell, and resulted in the finding of a small tumor in the brain.  At the inquest it was developed that the deceased had been in ill health for about three months and had been subject to melancholy, but of late had been apparently well in mind and body.  About two months ago she had to be watched constantly for fear she would commit some rash act, the husband having been warned by Dr. Sampsell, the family physician, that she would probably take her own life.  The improvement in her health had caused the family to be less vigilant and she succeeded in committing the deed.  Margaret A. (Martin) Tinkey was born September 9th., 1837 in Wayne County, Ohio.  When nearly ten years of age she moved, with her parents, to a farm south of Independence.  At the age of 20 years she became a member of the Cumberland Presbyterian church.  November 25th., 1868 she was married to James Tinkey and two years later both joined the Methodist church at Independence and ever after lived the life of a consistent Christian.  Seven children (three boys and four girls) were born to her, one girl dying in infancy.  She had ill health nearly all her life which caused her to become greatly attached to her home and family.  The funeral took place from her late residence on Sunday at 10 o'clock, Rev. Isaac Leedy officiating.  The husband and six children have the sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement.  Mr. Tinkey fully appreciates the many kind acts of the friends and neighbors and to them he extends his warmest thanks.  [Bellville Star:  19 July 1888, Vol. 11, No. 43]
