Sudden Death of Mrs. Philip Seifert

   When Philip Seifert, a well known pioneer resident of Union Street, arose Monday morning, he found his aged life partner lying on the floor of a room at his home. Investigation revealed that Mrs. Seifert was still alive, but before medical aid could be summoned, she expired; heart trouble being the cause of death. The deceased had been in her usual good health up to the time of retiring Sunday evening.
    Mrs. Seifert, born Thiery, was born in Germany 77 years ago and came to America in 1847, settling with her parents in Seneca Township. On February 20, 1850, she was married to her grief-stricken husband, in New Riegel.

With a Winchester Rifle
Joseph Shirkey , of Linden, Ends HIs Life--was a Higly Respected resident

   The residents in the vicinity of Linden, a small station on the Pennsylvania line, seven and one-half miles northwest of this city, are terribly wrought up over the suicide of Joseph Shirkey, one of the odest and most highly respected farmers of that vicinity.
    As was jos isual custom, Mr. Shirkey got up at an early hour Friday going to the barn to feed the stock. before he had finished this work, however he returned to the house, and wouthout a word, went upstairs, where he took a Winchester rifle and shot himself through the head. Members of the family at once rushed to him and found his lifeless body lying on the floor.
    It is thought that the unfortunate man became suddenly demented, as he has been subject to melancholy spells since a severe attack of paralysis, which he experienced a year or more ago, and it is reported that on one other occasion, he tried to kill himself with a butcher knife, but was prevented by members of his family.
    The sad occurrence has cause universal regret in that community, as Mr. Shirkey was looked upon as one of its best and most substantial citizens. He was aged about sixty-five years and leaves a widow and seven grown up children. He lived in that vicinity over forty years.

6/1/1897
The funeral of Joseph Shirkey, Linden who committed suicide Friday by shooting himself, was held Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Advertiser was misinformed as to the weapon used by him. Instead of shooting himself through the head with a rifle, he shot himself through the heart with a revolver.

   Henry Strausbaugh, a well known resident, expired at the home of his daughter-in-law.
    Henry Strausbaugh, one of Tiffin's old residents, who resided at the corner of Jackson and Hudson streets, dropped dead at the home of his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Fannie Strausbaugh, 25 East Perry St., at 1 o'clock Saturday. He was feeling quite well and soon after dinner left the house to come up town, but when he reached the home of his daughter-in-law, he was almost entirely out of breath and stopped to rest. A moment later he dropped over and died in a few seconds. Heart disease is the probable cause of death. Henry's ambulance was called and the body taken to his home, where first a messenger had been sent to break the sad news to his aged wife.

He was a highly respected gentleman and was widely known. Beside his aged widow, five children survived: John, of Kansas, August, Emanuel, Mary, wife of George Rumschlag and William.

   Benjamin Swander of Clyde, a brother of D.A. Swander of Bloomville was instantly killed when the auto truck in which he was riding was hit by an electric car near Clyde on Tuesday evening of last week. Mr Swander had been in Bloomville visiting his brother but a few days before his death.
    Account of the accident:
"A traffic accident on McPherson Hwy claimed another life Tuesday evening in the death of Benjamin Swander, 74, a resident of Adams twp, who was instantly kiled when his small truck was struck by a west bound Lake Shore Electric car at Birdseye's Corners. The accident occurred about 6:30 while Swander was enroute home after his day's work at the J.E. Pettys home within 100 ft of the scene of the accident. Swander had been employed at the Pettys orchard for the past three seasons during th apple harvest and had begun his work there Monday for this season. According to Mrs Pettys he quit work at 6 o'clock and left a few minutes later for his home. His intentions were to take the Streeter road to Lay Pike, but apparently he failed to note the approach of the interurban which struck his machine and carried it down the track. The unfortunate man's body was found some distance from the crossing. The body was removed to the home south of Clyde. Funeral services will be held this afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Block Church and burial will be made in the adjoining cemetery."

In his young manhood he was married to Miss Alvira Gooding, daughter of Mr and Mrs Joseph Gooding and they resided for many years on the Swander farm south of Clyde. After the death of his wife several years ago, he gave up his home and has been living with his children, spending most of his time with a daughter, Mrs Allan Manbeck of Adams twp.

Jacob Vogt, a prominent and wealthy farmer from Venice Township, Seneca Co, was found on Wednesday afternoon last week in woods near his home hanging from a tree. It is believed that he sought to kill himself and that the rash deed was carried out during the night. For about two years Vogt had had a large quantity of grain stored up in Republic for which the price had fallen, and over which he had worried so much that he had become deranged. He was around sixty years old and left behind grown children.

John W. Walters

Obituary Jan. 15, 1899

   John W. Walters was born in Baden, Germany, Oct. 30, 1823, aged 75 years, 2 months, and 15 days. In 1832, he accompanied his parents to this country. When Sandusky was reached, cholera was raging in the then small town and to this dread disease the subject of our sketch was exposed, but with all this staring them in the face, the Walters family loaded their small amount of furniture and provisions on a wagon and started for their new home, which was to be what is now known as the John M. Shaull? farm in Hopewell twp., this county. Hardly half the distance was made when young Walter's mother was seized with the dread malady and died, but the family still pressed onward and entered their new home.
    In a few yeas his father died and young Walters was put out among strangers, but all this did not discourage him, for he lived to grow to manhood and , in September, 1849, he married Susan Catherine McDonald, with whom he lived until his death, or within a few months of 50 years. To this union were born four children, ten grandchildren and fourteen great grandchildren- Mary, wife of David Nighswander, living on the old home farm: Ellen, wife of Oscar McClintock, residing in Oklahoma, John, deceased, was killed by a log falling upon him. Frank the youngest boy, died in January 1890.
    Mr. Walters joined the C.? B. church of Olive Branch, and was a constant member of the denomination until it ceased to be a church, which was about 1877. From there he was transferred to the M.E. church in Ft. Seneca, of which he has since been a member and always attended whenever his health would permit.
    In August 1861, he enlisted in the 165th O.V. of the civil war, where he performed his duty as a good soldier until his discharge in 1863.
    He had lived upon the farm where he died for forty years and transformed it from a wilderness into a nice fertile farm.
    The aged wife and mother has the sympathy of friend and neighbors, and all will join in to make life for her as pleasant as possible.

Judge John Zimmerman

Awful Accident

    Our citizens were startled on yesterday afternoon by the painful intelligence that their esteemed neighbor and fellow citizen, Judge John ZIMMERMAN, and a youth, aged about 14, were both buried beneath a bank of sand, a short distance south east of the city. Upon repairing to the spot, they found but too sad a reality!

    It appears that the Judge had been hauling sand, and proceeded to the bank immediately after dinner. The boy and himself descended the pit, and whilst engaged in digging, a portion of the bank caved away and fell upon them; burying them about four feet beneath the surface.

    There was no one present at the time of the occurrence, nor for several hours afterwards. An individial enganed in a cornfield in the vicinity, observing the team standing unemployed at the bank for several hours, proceeded to the spot to ascertain the cause, and discovered that the bank had caved in, and immediately gave the alarm.
    The Judge leaves a large family to mourn his sudden and untimely departure. He was much esteemed as an honest and upright man, and at the time of his death, was one of the Associate Judges of this county. He was formerly a citizen of Frederick county, Maryland.

**************

Northwest Continent, 31 Oct 1850, pg 2, Col. 6

Melancholy Occurrence

     We are sorry, truly sorry, that it becomes our painful duty to announce the death of our very worthy and much esteemed fellow citizen, John Zimmerman, Esq., as well as that of a German boy in his employ. They came to their deaths in the following manner: They were digging sand, and (accidentally, as we suppose,) the bank which they had undermined, caved in upon them, killing them instantaneously.

    The death of Mr. Zimmerman will be much regretted by our citizens. He ranked amongst our earliest settlers, and was much esteemed for his integrity of purpose and uprightness of character, by all who knew him. He was one of our Associate Judges for the Court of Common Pleas of this county, and his death will fall heavily upon his associates upon the Bench, as well as on the members of the Bar. 'Peace to his ashes;' life's fitful fever is over, and we trust he sleeps well.
