Contributed by Deborah Grant 


Some time during Wednesday afternoon of last week an old man named Isaac Teeple committed suicide, at his home in Carroll township, near Monongahela City.  Teeple followed business of farming until about four years past when he became ill.  He has since been in a debilitated condition, Wednesday the family attended the fair in Monongahela City, and Teeple sent a little boy, who had called to see him to the barn.  He then secured a rope, tied on e end of it to the banisters of the stairs, and the other around his neck, climbed over the railing and let himself drop.  When the boy returned to the house he saw through the window the suspended body.  He ran all the way to Monongahela City, a mile and a half, and gave the alarm, but when the house was reached Teeple was cold in death.  He was in his 84th year, leaves a family and also considerable property. No cause for the deed is assigned.
