Uhlich, George -- On the Memorial Day list is the name of Jacob Uhlich as having been a revolutionary soldier.  The name should be George Uhlich, a soldier of the war of 1812.  Mrs. Miller, of Bowman Street, a daughter of this soldier, states that her father served his country in the War of 1812 and that he died in 1836.  His father's name was also George, but was not a soldier.  Mrs. Miller accounts for these errors from the fact that after the removal of the remains from the old burial grounds at the corner of Adams and First Streets, to the present cemetery, a new headstone was put up, and the mistake in the inscription was not noticed at the time.  Mrs. Miller late requested that the inscription be corrected, but it was never done.  [Butler Enterprise:  15 September 1899]

Umbarger, H. Edwin -- H. Edwin Umbarger, 78, West Lafayette, Indiana died Monday, Nov. 15, 1999, at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Rehabilitation Center, Carmel, Indiana, where he was recuperating from surgery.  Professor Umbarger was born on July 17, 1921 in Shelby, Ohio. His undergraduate education was at Ohio University, where he graduated in 1943, and his graduate education was at Harvard University where he received his Ph. D. degree in Bacteriology and Immunology in 1950. He was a hospital corpsman in the U. S. Navy from 1944 to 1946 serving on the USS Rescue in the Pacific.  He joined the faculty of Purdue University in 1964 following appointments as Staff Investigator at the Cold Spring Harbor Biological Laboratory, New York, 1960-1964, and Assistant Professor of Bacteriology and Immunology, Harvard Medical School, 1957-1960. In 1970, he was named Wright Distinguished Professor of Biological Sciences.  Professor Umbarger was a leading researcher in the field of amino acid biosynthesis in bacteria. One of his major contributions to science was the discovery of "feedback inhibition", a phenomenon that contributes to the high efficiency of biochemical processes in bacteria. Feedback inhibition, an unexpected finding, offered new insight into ways in which the life processes of cells are regulated.  It opened new approaches to the design of drugs aimed at inhibiting pathogenic organisms, approaches employed in numerous ways at this time. He was honored for his work by election to the National Academy of Sciences of 1976.  Dr. Umbarger served on the editorial boards of the Journal of Bacteriology, as well as Editor. He also served as Chairman of the Division of Microbial Physiology of the American Society for Microbiology.  He is survived by his wife, Virginia Moore Abele Umbarger, whom he married in 1995.

Upp, Hannah (Croninger) -- Hannah Croninger was born in Sugar Creek Township, Stark County, Ohio, Feb. 3, 1826.  She departed this life in Plymouth, O., June 22, 1914, at the ripe age of 88 years, 4 months and 19 days, being the last of a family of fourteen children.  In the year 1835 she moved with her parents to Huron County, O., residing in this county to the time of her death.  April 2nd., 1846 she was united in marriage with Philip Upp, with whom she shared the joys and sorrows of life for 52 years, when a happy and prosperous union was dissolved by the death of her husband on Dec. 29, 1898.  Eight children were the fruits of this union, one of whom, the youngest, died in infancy.  We think it worthy of remark because of its rarity that seven of her children, all of whom are past 50 years of age, remain to mourn her loss;  there are also 33 grandchildren and 32 great-grandchildren.  Mother Upp and her husband knew much of pioneer life, having begun their married life in log cabins and the crude methods of home life belonging to that earlier period in the history of our state.  In 1873 she with her husband, removed to this village, remaining to the time of her death, occupying the same house for a period of 41 years.  Mrs. Upp was unobtrusive in her nature, of a retiring disposition, preferring others rather than self.  She looked well to the cares and duties of home and family, and had but little time or disposition for public ministrations.  Her domestic life was ideal, and she was also greatly attached to her neighbors and friends.  Her religious life began about fifty years ago, when she was converted in a United Brethren Church, which stood on a farm owned by herself and husband.  She united with that church and remained a member until their removal to this place when she united with the Methodist Church, from which she was translated to the church triumphant.  Her last illness covered a period of more than six months.  She knew her disease was fatal and often prayed for her release.  Again and again would she speak of Jesus as her precious Lord and Savior.  Mrs. Upp was a lover of music and in her younger life a good singer, and during her recent illness frequently asked that the old hymns of the church be sung.  Her frequent expressions of gratitude to her children and others who so tenderly cared for her during her last prolonged illness were indicative of the kindly Christian and appreciative spirit which was a large asset in her life.  Her children will rise up and call her blessed.  Funeral services were held from the Methodist church, Wednesday, conducted by her pastor, Rev. R.H. Balmer.  The text was taken from Phil. 1-21.  "For me to live is Christ, to die is gain."  --  [Plymouth Advertiser:  27 June 1914, Vol. 61, No. 32]

Urich, Christian -- Christian Urich died at his home in Franklin Township, April 1st., at 5:30 p.m., aged 85 years and 10 days.  The deceased was born in Lebanon County, Pa., March 21, 1801.  Christian Urich was united in marriage to Elizabeth Backenstow, February 26, 1822, in Lebanon County, Pa.  About 10 years of their early married life was spent in Lebanon and Dauphin counties, after which, in the spring of 1832, they moved to Richland County, Ohio, arriving at their destination on the 10th. day of May, 1832, where they lived together about 48 years.  The whole number of years they lived together was nearly 59 years.  His wife died January 13, 1881, after which he lived five years, some month and days, making his age as above stated.  [Mansfield Herald:  15 April 1886]
