Wm. C. Hays

On Sunday last, at his residence near Ridgeville, in this county, after a brief illness, Mr. Wm. C. Hays, in the 49th year of his age. The deceased was for many years an exemplary christian, and, as the head of a family, a good neighbor and citizen, distinguished for his upright life and exemplary deportment. He died in full possession of his faculties, and in hope of a blissful immortality.

William Harrison Hay (1825-1862)

Another Soldier Gone.

Mr. Hay of Mason, private in the 71st Ohio regiment, died at his home in Mason on Thursday morning last, of wounds received at the battle of Pittsburg Landing.
On receipt of the news of his death in Lebanon, a squad of 20 men, under command of Lieut. Sausser, accompanied by the Lebanon Cornet Band, repaired to MAson, to pay the last tribute of respect to the brave soldier, by participating in the funeral ceremonies. An appropriate discourse was delivered by Rev. Mr. Rogers, from the text, "an enemy hath done this." It was worthy of the occasion and the preacher. A short sketch of the manner in which he was wounded followed. The coffin was opened in the Church, where all had an opportunity of seeing the corpse, and then his mouldering frame was laid in its long home.
By giving up the ties that bound him here, for the trials and hazards of war, he evinced the purity of his patriotism, and, at last, he bore testimony to its devotedness by the seal of his blood. He freely offered his life for the preservation of the government. That life has been taken, leaving a wife and two children to mourn their loss.

"The lightnings may flash and the loud thunders rattle:
He heeds not, he fears not, he's free from all pain;
He sleeps his last sleep, he has fought his last battle,
No sound can awake him to glory again."
