The subject of this subjoined obituary which we copy from the Kansas City Journal was born and reared in Lebanon and will be remembered by many of our old citizens. His parents died while he was an infant and he was brought up and educated by his grandfather, Ichabod Corwin. In early life he served as an apprenticeship in this office when the STAR was edited and published by A. H. Dunlevy and Jacob Morris. Afterward he studied law with his uncle, R. G. Corwin to whom he was more like a brother than a nephew. After his admission to the bar he removed to Sidney and practiced his profession there and at Lima and Wapakoneta until 1857 when he removed to Kansas. During his residence in Sidney he married Miss Harriet A. Sheppard, a lady formerly of Buffalo, N.Y., who was highly accomplished and thoroughly educated. He will be remembered as a genial, warm hearted man and scrupulously honest and truthful and though full of wit and humor he was upright, moral and essentially a Christian in his whole life. The following is from the Kansas City Journal:
Moses B. Newman, a prominent and old citizen of Wyandotte died peacefully and conscious after an illness of nearly three months. He at first suffered from neuralgia of the stomach, but later severe jaundice set in, and although the aged gentleman rallied slightly from this complication, he has been gradually declining to his end for several days past. He attained his 70th year on the 9th of March last, being born at Lebanon, Ohio, in 1816. He married in that city, in 1851, Miss H. A. Sheppard, with whom he migrated to Quindaro, this county, in 1857, removing in 1860 to Wyandotte, which city has ever since been his home. Being an able and popular man, he was honored by his fellow citizens with many public appointments. He was, in 1865, on the Hill City's first mayors, and he has at various times filled the offices of county clerk and probate judge. He was an honored member of the Wyandotte county bar, which met and adopted resolutions of respect and made arrangement to attend the funeral. He leaves a widow and five children. The two daughters are Mrs. Lydia C. Diederich, wife of Dr. Diederich, of this city, and Mrs. Maria Mull, of Bismark, D.T. The three sons are Frank, resident of Leavenworth; Edmund, at Ellsworth; and Robert, who has remained with his parents.
The deceased, who resided on the corner of Barnett and Seventh streets,
leaves his family in comfortable circumstance. Judge Newman
was vice president of the Kansas State Horticultural Society.
