To enter your Richland County obituaries:

1- On first line put name of deceased. Use the name in the obit. If you want to rename the individual to clarify who they are add that name in parenthesis after the obit name. Look below for examples of this. Do this to include maiden names or full names for individuals given initials only in the obit.
2-On the second line put the name of the newspaper, newspaper's town, date of issue where obituary is found, page, column, if known. PLEASE.... Richland County newspapers only... or another newspaper if the individual was a current or former resident of Richland County.
3-Type out the obituary capitalizing all SURNAMES. Don't put given names or locations all in caps, just the surnames. Now here's the hard part. Limit your obituary to less than 300 words. This may be hard. Some obituaries go on and on. Figure out what to keep... what to drop. If we get something too long we'll have to send it back to you for editing. If you have corrections, notes, etc. to add to an obit (put them in parenthesis). Also remember, notes will be added on as part of the 300 word limit.

STINE - John Adam STINE
Independent News, Shelby, Ohio 12 Oct 1876
On the 6th inst, at his late residence, John Adam STINE, aged 81 years, 7 months and 19 days.  Father Stine was born in Lebanon County, PA.  In 1833 he came to Ohio and lived five years in Clark County, from which place he moved to Richland County, where he lived the remainder of his days.  His family consisted of wife and seven children, of whom his wife and two children preceeded him to a better world.  In early life he united with the Ev. Lutheran Church, and for sixty years held fast to his profession of faith without wavering, a regular attendant upon the means of grace, leading a quiet and peaceable life.  During the last six months, while the outward man was rapidly perishing, the inward man was renewed day by day, so that he had a desire to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.  Death had no terrors to his mind.  When the hour of his departure came, without a groan and without a struggle he fell asleep in Jesus.  His funeral took place last Sabbath at the London Church, attended by a large congregation.  The funeral sermon was preached by Rev F. J. RUTH his former pastor, from the words, Weep not for me but weep for yourselves and for your children.
