  6. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Fri, 1897 Aug 20 - Article No. 31. Martin and Jacob Whitzell were brothers and were of the first party of German settlers. They arrived in Canfield on election day, the second Tuesday of October, 1804. Martin was married, Jacob was single. Martin is said to have purchased two 60-acre lots about one and a quarter miles north of the center. He was a blacksmith and worked at his trade a hard working industrious and respected man. He died in August, 1811. His widow afterwards married Daniel Wannamaker and moved to Liberty. When he died she returned to Canfield and died in 1819. Mary, the oldest daughter of Martin, married Samuel Gilbert; Susan to Jacob Wise; Catherine to Jacob Dustman, a former landlord at the Black Horse hotel in Canfield. Jacob, the brother of Martin, purchased and settled on the farm now occupied by Adam Brobst and, I think, erected the buildings yet to be found on the farm where he died in 1855. He had a wife for a short time, but most of his life was spent as a lonely hermit. .

  33. Obituary MYGATT, George, 1797-1885 Western Reserve Chronicle Sun, 22 Apr 1885 p. 8:3. Died in Cleveland, on Sunday evening, April 12th, in the 88th year of his age. Born in Danbury, Connecticut, June 14, 1798. His parents were Comfort S, Mygatt and Lucy Mygatt, who were among the pioneers of Canfield, now Mahoning county. They came from Danbury to Ohio, in the summer of 1807, arriving in Canfield on the 7th day of July, with four daughters, two sons and two step-sons. Of their children, Henry Stiles died in August, 1869, in the seventy-second year of his age. Mr. Comfort Mygatt was engaged in the mercantile business in Canfield, some sixteen years. He had been a member of the Connecticut Legislature before removing to Ohio, and was one of the original corporators of the first bank on the Western Reserve. It was chartered in 1811-'12, and located in Warren. The first Board of Directors were Comfort S. Mygatt, Leonard Case, Simon Perkins, John Kinsman, Calvin Pease, Francis Freeman, Calvin Austin, and Henry Wick. Among the directors afterwards, were Governor Ford, Elisha Whittlesey, Asael Adams and Frederick Kinsman. Mr. Zalmon Fitch, a brother-in-law of George Mygatt, was chosen, in 1812, the first cashier, and remained in that position until he was promoted to the Presidency April 5, 1836. Although this Western Reserve Bank was among the first banks chartered in the State, it was the only one that continued solvent until the end of the State bank organizations in 1863. Mr. George Mygatt entered the employ of the Western Reserve Bank at Warren in 1818 as Teller and Book-keeper. He carried on as a mercantile business in Warren for about five years; a part of the time as a partner with Asael Adams. He was elected Sheriff of Trumbull county in 1829 and re-elected in 1831, serving four years. He removed to Huron county in 1834 and was cashier of the bank of Norwalk two years. He removed to Painesville and was Cashier of the bank of Geauga for ten years. He removed to Cleveland in 1846 and was elected President of the City Bank of Cleveland, which position he held for four years. He was a member of the firm of Mygatt & Brown, private bankers in Cleveland, for six years. He was elected to the State Legislature from Cuyahoga county in 1855 and served two years. In 1857, the Merchants Bank of Cleveland becoming deeply involved by the failure of the Ohio Life and Trust Company, of Cincinnati, Mr. Mygatt was prevailed upon to become its cashier. A disastrous panic was then sweeping over the country, but owing to Mr. Mygatt's successful management, the bank, although compelled to sink a large portion of its stock, was enabled to maintain its integrity and redeem its notes. In 1861 he retired from active business life, but idleness was irksome to him, and in 1865 he became secretary of the Cleveland & Mahoning Railroad Company, a position which he held for several years and then retired permanently. The deceased was one of the prominent members of the Old Stone Church, having connected himself with it when he first came to Cleveland, nearly forty years ago. A large portion of his time and means have always been devoted to benevolent purposes. The Sunday schools, the church, industrial school, and in fact all charitable movements, found in him a liberal supporter, and the memory of his good deeds will long survive him. The bare recital of facts in the life of Mr. Mygatt, shows it to have been one of remarkable activity, and his industry and activity were attended with equal success. As a business man he was characterized by the strictest integrity, always preserving a quiet, considerate policy, and by incessant industry, accomplishing a great deal. He was a gentleman of the old school, and was noted for his genial, social disposition. To the hour of his death, which was caused by old age, he retained in a remarkable degree his mental faculties. He was married at Warren, in 1820 (19 Apr 1820) to Miss Eliza Freeman, a sister of the late Judge Francis Freeman. This union was blessed with six children, only one of whom survives, viz.; Lucy, now widow of the Hon. Franklin T. Rackus. Residing in Warren are his nephews, viz.: Mr. George and Whittlesey Adams, James Hoyt, Lewis Hoyt, Edward W. Hoyt, John S. Hoyt and Edward A. Smith.

A. Akins of Milton, which occurred at their home last Thursday evening about 7 o'clock. Effie was taken sick with measles about two weeks ago and appeared to be recovering when complications of a serious nature set in and she grew rapidly worse until Thursday night when the end came. The esteem in which she was held in the neighborhood was shown by the large assemblage of sorrowing friends who gathered at her home last Sunday to show their love and sympathy.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Kinsley, pastor of the Orr's Corner's church, of which she was a member. Music was furnished by the choir of that church.

In the death of Mr. Allen we lost one of our most estimable and worthy citizens. He had the happy faculty which some do not seem to posses, of being able to apprehend and appreciate genuine religious sentiment and character regardless of sect of denomination. His christian life and character were above reproach, unmarred by religious bigotry and sectarian prejudice - in brief, an honorable, upright christian gentleman.

  202. Ibid., Fri, 21 Apr 1882:. Ellsworth - Golden Wedding of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Allen “Quite a brilliant event in the social circle of Ellsworth, took place Tuesday, March 21st, 1882, when our highly esteemed and honored friends, Mr. and Mrs. Martin Allen, celebrated their Golden Wedding at their comfortable residence. The preparations for the event were quite extensive, and all passed off "as merry as a marriage bell." All of their eight children, grand-children, as well as many other relatives and friends of the family were present, numbering in all, seventy-four. Three generations were represented, spanning within ten years, the present century. The oldest person present was Mrs. Elizabeth M. Coit, whose praise is in all the church, and one of the purest specimens of christian womanhood; she has entered upon her 81st year. Long may she be spared to us. Among the relatives from a distance who were present were the following: Mr. and Mrs. Ripley, of Chicago; Mr. and Mrs. R.A. Kirk and family, of Canton; Mr. and Mrs. A.W. Allen, Jr., Mr. and Mrs. H.B. Allen and family, Mr. David Allen and wife, of Salem; and Mr. Mason Beaumont, "alone by himself." After spending about an hour in social converse, the guests were summoned to a sumptuous banquet, fit for kings and queens, presidents and cabinet officials. Divine blessing having been asked, the guests showed their appreciation of the bountiful repast by feasting to their heart's content, and mentally and even audibly wishing that golden weddings might occur frequently. Dinner being over, our genial host, Mr. Martin Allen, in a few well-chosen and suitable words, welcomed the guests to the hospitality of his mansion, and expressed devout gratitude to God for His goodness to him and his wife, and then called upon the pastor to lead in prayer. Dr. Geo. W. Brooke had been appointed by the family to prepare an address for the occasion, giving historical reminiscences, and contrasting events of "ye olden time" with the present day. The Doctor was in his happiest mood, and gave a racy, interesting and instructive address, causing the older ones to live over again the days of yore, when the township of Ellsworth was a comparative wilderness, when the forests resounded with the whoop of the red man, and the night echoed with the hideous yells of wolves. It was resolved that his address be prepared for publication. We subjoin the following: DR. G. W. BROOKE'S ADDRESS We have met today, my friends, to commemorate an event in the history of our worthy host and his estimable wife that comparatively few live to enjoy - the celebration of the fiftieth anniversary of their wedded life -- their Golden Wedding. I promise you in the beginning, that I shall occupy but a few minutes of your time, for you are here today more for social intercourse and enjoyment than to listen to extended speech-making; and whatever I may say, you will please hold me alone responsible for, and not charge any impropriety of speech on my part to Mr. Allen or any of his family. There will not be time for me more than to glance at a few of the changes that have occurred in the last half century in this vicinity or in our community, or even to allude to the remarkable and sometimes ludicrous scenes and incidents of pioneer life. These things I will leave to those more competent than myself to detail -- the very persons themselves who were the actors in the great drama of life, more than fifty years ago, and who are with us to-day. In the meantime, as we revert to the past, dwell upon the present, and speculate as …..”.

  460. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Fri, 25 June 1897. Re: Excerpt from the Aaron Collar Family “----the sons Amiel and Harvey removed in early life to Mesopotamia and both are dead; leaving only the son, Aaron, to perpetuate the name in Canfield. He was born in Massachusetts in 1790. In 1816 he married for his first wife Minerva Merwin. A side remark will not be out of place. The Merwin family was prolific in furnishing talented, good looking and influential daughters. One of them was Mrs. Josiah Beardsley, for many years a resident of Boardman. Both husband and wife repose in our village cemetery. A few old Methodist people still live to join with me in attesting the fact that Mrs. Josiah Beardsley was a woman of remarkable ability and power. Wherever she attended religious meetings she was uniformly expected or invited to take a part, and I am very safe in saying that but few ministers or laymen could speak or pray more to the edification of the people than "Sister Beardsley." Another of these sisters became the wife of the well-known Rev. Billings O. Plympton, a man of power and influence in his day. It is fair to assume that Mrs. Aaron Collar was also a gifted woman. After the marriage Mr. Collar continued to occupy all or a portion of his father's farm. He burned the brick and built of them the two-story dwelling that stood on the place, and was for many years a conspicuous land mark. When he left this place he took an interest in the carding and fulling mill and other industries located on the Dunning hill. He afterward purchased the saw mill proper on Crane St. where he resided for many years and where he died, Nov. 8th, 1877, in his 87th year. His mother, Lavina, was one of the original nine who first organized the Congregational Church in 1804. The son Aaron united with the same church in 1821 and immediately became one of the active and leading members of that society. When the church afterwards separated he went with the Presbyterian portion and faithfully served that church as one of its officers and was uniformly called and known by everyone as "Deacon Collar." It should not be overlooked that in the war of 1812 he was found in the ranks as fife major. In August 1822 his wife Minerva died of consumption. She was the mother of Ira, Lavina and Mary, the latter died in infancy. Lavina became the wife of our late undertaker, Ashbel G. Arnold. In December, 1822, Mr. Collar married for his second wife Nancy Hunt, a daughter of Rev. Thomas Hunt, a Presbyterian clergyman, by whom the following were born: Thomas H., Charles F., Aaron R. and William H. Collar. Thomas has since died in Michigan. Charles F. lives in Coalburg, Trumbull county, and Wm. H. in Bellville, Ill. Mary died when young. The descendants of Aaron Collar senior and junior, so far as our vicinity is concerned, are confined to Ira and Laura and their descendants.”.

She was a great lover of flowers and her popularity was fully demonstrated by the great quantity of beautiful flowers presented to her each season. It was no unusual thing for her to have from six to ten bouquets placed on the show case in the store at one time, all given by kind friends who loved and admired her. She was of a kind and generous disposition ever doing more than her full share to relieve the wants and sufferings of her associates. She was very popular with children and elderly people who liked kindly treatment. During her last sickness there was constant inquiry of the doctor and at the store to know how she was getting along. The many offers of kind friends to help care for her, or do some service to comfort her during her last illness were highly appreciated by her as it was a mark of the esteem in which she was held by her many friends and acquaintances. Mrs. McCain's husband, father, mother and brother have preceded her. Of her immediate relatives she leaves to mourn the loss of a kind and generous aunt, two nephews living in Canfield, Ohio, one niece in Youngstown, Ohio, two nieces in Ensley, Alabama, and Gladys Ramsey of Alliance, Ohio.

Calvin of Ensley, Alabama, who had been at the bedside of her aunt during the last three weeks of her illness.

Tuesday evening, soon after eating a hearty supper, she was seized with convulsions, and before Dr. Campbell, who was called, could do anything for her, passed away.

Mrs. Ramsey was the eldest daughter of Mrs. W. H. Arnold, whose husband died some six years since. Her age was 28 years. She was married to Mr. Ramsey a little more than three years ago. To them were born three children, two of whom, a little daughter and infant son, are living. Mrs. Ramsey was much beloved by all who knew her and her untimely death is deeply mourned.

Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 20 Oct 1899 “Distressing Accident - Mrs. Flora Hammond of Ellsworth: killed while visiting in Cleveland. Last Saturday's Cleveland Plaindealer contained the following report of an accident to people well known in this county: Mrs. Flora Hammond of Ellsworth met death almost instantly yesterday afternoon, as the result of a runaway which occurred in Wade park. The buggy was capsized and all of the occupants thrown out and injured. The fine weather of yesterday induced a company of ladies residing in Glenville to enjoy the fall scenery through the parks. The company consisted of Mrs. William Naylor of No. 149 John Street, Mrs. Almira Webb, Mrs. Charles Webb, daughter-in-law of Mrs. Webb, and Mrs. Flora Hammond, daughter of Mrs. Almira Webb. Mrs. Hammond is a widow, who came from her home at Ellsworth, O., a few days ago to visit her mother and brother, at the latter's home, at No. 668 Doan street. In Mrs. Naylor's double-seated, open buggy the ladies started for a trip through the parks, Mrs. Naylor acting as driver. About 4 o'clock the party was passing on the drive in Wade park encircling the zoological gardens. Charley, the ostrich, well known to most Clevelanders, was at the time in his yard. He rustled his feathers and stretched himself in a manner which the horse attached to the buggy was not accustomed to. The horse took fright at the large bird and made a lunge to one side. The buggy was upturned and its occupants thrown to the ground. The frightened animal then dashed west on the drive and was stopped just at the top of the hill leading to the brook by a park policeman. The four ladies were thrown in a heap. When two of them regained their senses they found that Mrs. Hammond was unconscious, as was also Mrs. Naylor. Assistance soon arrived and the ladies were taken care of. Dr. Herrick was summoned, but before he arrived Mrs. Hammond died. In falling from the buggy her head struck against a stone and her skull was fractured, death resulting in a few minutes. The other ladies were removed to their home in a carriage, while the body of Mrs. Hammond was removed to Wagner's morgue. Mrs. Naylor was badly bruised about the head and body and was rendered unconscious, in which state she remained for several hours. Mrs. Charles Webb sustained a severe strain of her back and Mrs. Almira Webb had a bad bruise on her forehead. All of the ladies were severely shaken up and almost prostrated by the occurrence. The coroner was notified and Deputy Coroner West viewed the remains of Mrs. Hammond. The body was removed to Ellsworth Saturday. Mrs. Hammond was the widow of the late O. E. Hammond and was about 48 years of age. She was an active member of the M. E. Church of Ellsworth and a most useful and respected woman of the community. Besides a host of friends and other relatives she leaves three children - E. F. Hammond and Mrs. Hiram McKenzie of Ellsworth and Mrs. J. M. Arnold of Rosemont. Funeral services held from the M. E. Church Monday at 3 pm, were conducted by Revs. McGaha and Kelly. Interment in the Ellsworth cemetery.”.

The deceased was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Calvin, among the early settlers of Green Township. He was born on the homestead farm east of Greenford August 19, 1842, and in consequences was a little more than 63 years of age. His education was secured in the schools of his native township and his early manhood was spent on the farm. In 1863 he went to Illinois where, with the exception of a year, he resided until 1880. He was united in marriage in 1868 to Miss Julia Reese of Pennsylvania. From this union three children resulted two of whom, Joseph V. Calvin of Ensley, Ala., and Mrs. J. Calvin Ewing of Youngstown, survive. Mrs. Calvin died in 1874. In 1860 Mr. Calvin located in Canfield, engaging in the milling business with J. S. Stafford. Seven years later he purchased the interest of his partner and had since conducted the business alone, having since 1893 owned one of the best and most modern flour mills in this section of the state.

Funeral services were held in the Presbyterian Church Sunday afternoon, and the remains interred in the Canfield cemetery, followed by a large concourse of mourning friends. Died in Canfield, Ohio, on Friday August 4th, 1882, May, daughter of Mrs. Mary Stewart, in the 20th year of her age. Long sufferer under the insidious attacks of that terrible disease, consumption, she is now at rest. Seldom has anyone been removed, whose departure has called forth more general marks of sorrow and grief. She was universally beloved. Kind, amiable, gentle, intelligent, possessing a large measure the graces of culture, dutiful as a daughter, an untiring in every good work as consistent member of the Presbyterian Church, she made devoted friends wherever she was known. A large concourse of sympathizing friends attended the funeral on Sabbath afternoon. All the members of her Sabbath School class, together with nearly all the members of the Sabbath School, and many others, testified their love for the dead and sorrow for her early departure, by rich floral offerings cast upon the casket when lowered into the grave. Also by the grand array and rich profusion of flowers and immortals that bedecked the casket and its surroundings as her remains laid in state in front of the altar at the church, gave evidence that the deceased was held in high esteem by her many friends and neighbors. A beautiful head-rest, made of flowers, in the center of which was the inscription: “May” bore the marks of sympathizing friends and acquaintances; showing deep love and friendship for the deceased, which language fails to express. Her excellent mother and aged grandfather have the sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement. How unsearchable are God's judgments and His ways past finding out. But, however mysterious God's providence, this young sufferer uttered no complaint, nor did she by word or look, give expression to even momentary impatience during her long weeks of suffering. She ever expressed a cheerful resignation and hopeful submission to her Heavenly Father's will, feeling that 'He doeth all things well.'”.

Transcribed by Jennifer Neff, 2003 Sarah Frances Ashby Neff was born in La Doga, Ind., to Captain G.W. and Martha Ashby, on October 15, 1853. She came with her parents to Franklin Co., Kansas in 1858, settling at Prairie City. In 1870 she came with her father and grandparents, Thompson Ashby and wife, to Wilson county, living one mile east of Buffalo, afterwards making her home with her father in Chanute, Kansas. She lived in the state of Kansas 78 years. She was married to Omer P. Neff on October 24, 1876 at Iola, Kansas and lived on a farm six miles southwest of Buffalo, moving to Buffalo in 1888. She was a resident of Wilson county about sixty-six years. Her father, Captain George W. Ashby was prominent in the early affairs of Clifton twp. and Mrs. Neff and her husband took a great interest in the building of the community of Buffalo and vicinity. Ashby Avenue in Chanute was named after Mrs. Neff's father, Captain G. W. Ashby. Mrs. Neff was baptized into the Christian church when 18 years of age. Surviving Mrs. Neff are her seven children: Meta A. White, Buffalo: Eli A. Neff, Pittsburgh, Pa. Alice M. Jones, San Diego, Calif.; Omer Lee Neff, Palo Alto, Calif.; Nancy A. Neff, Buffalo; George S. Neff, Kansas City, Mo.; and Hattie Bernice Carter, Crescenta, Calif.; also six grandchildren and three great grandchildren. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. C.O. Wilson, pastor of the Fredonia Christian church Wednesday afternoon at Buffalo. Burial was in the Buffalo cemetery. Jennifer Neff, 2003 Comment: In this 1936 obituary, her son, Eli, is listed as living in Pittsburgh, Pa. and in his father's 1937 obituary he is listed as living in Los Angeles, CA. Although these obituaries are only 1 year apart, Eli is listed as living in 2 very different places. A conjecture: perhaps he came back to Kansas for his mother's funeral - there is a Pittsburgh, KS nearby, and Pittsburgh, Pa. could be a misprint. About the KS counties and towns where the Eli Neff family lived and owned property: They are all in the southeast section of the state. Middletown is in Woodson County, KS Humboldt and Iola are in Allen County, KS Buffalo, Fredonia, Verdigris and Coyville are in Wilson County, KS Chanute is in Neosho County, KS Pittsburgh is in Crawford County, KS.

  656. Ibid., Fri, 9 Apr 1897 - Article No. 12. Excerpt: Jonah Scovil's name has already appeared in connection with an attempt to build a saw mill. He came to Canfield in the spring of 1801; his wife, children and mother-in-law, Mrs. Bailey, in the fall of the same year. Mrs. Bailey remained in Canfield until 1809, when at the age of 61 she rode on horseback to Philadelphia to make her home afterwards with a son. After leaving the mill Mr. Scovil purchased two 60-acre lots on West Center street, north side, probably the lot on which H. M. Osborn lives, and the lot west of it. Soon after bought from Homer Hine two 8-acre lots on the south side, and on one of these and on or very near the site of Dr. Cessna's (J. I. Manchester's) residence he built the third frame dwelling in Canfield. He died in August, 1813, aged 41, one of the victims of the terrible epidemic of that year. His wife, Mabel, survived him some 41 or 42 years, dying in 1856 at the age of 85. Before and after the husband's death they kept a public house, or what was then called a tavern. Mrs. Scovil was for many years a zealous and helpful member of the M. E. Church. The couple had five children, of whom one died early. The eldest, Permilia, married Edward, a son of Gen. Wadsworth. Mrs. Mary Beardsley of Canfield, the Misses' Hine of Youngstown and William, late of same place, are grandchildren, Chester Hunt a great-grandson. Mr. Scovil's oldest son, Wm. A., died in South America in 1825, aged 25. Frances Mary, the youngest, is still fresh in the memory of many of us. A noble looking woman, and no doubt in her youth handsome. She married John C. Reed, a medical student of Dr. C. R. Fowler, but I think did not complete his studies or practice medicine. He built the house now occupied by the widow Hake, but at first it stood on ground a little west of Orange Fales' residence. To this couple were born William H. and Mary C. The husband died in 1858. The mother and children many years ago removed to Jacksonville, Ill. The daughter, Mary, a beautiful woman, married a rising young attorney in Illinois. Joseph Cannon, who for many years has been a member of congress, a man of national reputation, and who is familiarly known now as "Uncle Joe." Uncle Joe recently reached out for Senator Palmer's shoes in the United States senate; but another man more fortunate now wears the coveted shoes.

  800. Ibid., Fri, 20 May 1011. The Vindicator Online Obituary, Fri, 20 May 1011 BOARDMAN - Lois Baird Mumaw, 84, passed away Thursday morning at her home, with her family by her side. She was born Aug. 24, 1926, in Middletown. Lois's great love was her family. She was devoted to her husband, Attorney James Mumaw, whom she married in 1948. They had 55 years together before he passed away in 2003. She took great pride in having his dinner ready for him on time each evening, and her grandchildren later delighted in teasing her about this preoccupation. Lois was a graduate of the University of Cincinnati, with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and was proud of being a Registered Nurse. She moved to Youngstown upon her marriage and worked as a visiting nurse. After the birth of her three sons, she stayed home and tolerated many raucous hours of basketball, baseball, and football in the backyard at her home on Glenwood Avenue, while she calmly refinished furniture on the porch. Her nursing degree came in handy many times as she patched up the knees and elbows of all the boys in the neighborhood. Amid all the happy chaos, she managed to have what must have been one of the most miraculously productive vegetable gardens in world history. Many lawyers downtown remember the summer days when her husband would bring in paper bags full of tomatoes to pass out to his colleagues. Her green thumb extended to flowers, as she effortlessly grew roses and a lilac hedge that was entirely purple with blossoms each spring. In the winter, she would quilt as several televisions and radios blared sports programs. Her family today is still grateful for that habit, which has resulted in mounds of quilts for every bed, guest bed, couch and loveseat in at least five households. When her boys were older, she worked as an office nurse for Dr. Kiskadden, and a school nurse for Youngstown City Schools. Lois served as secretary of the Boys and Girls Club of Youngstown from its earliest years until recently when her health no longer allowed her to attend meetings. She was an active member of its Board of Directors. She was a member of the Westminster Presbyterian Church, sitting for years in the front row of the balcony every Sunday. Her grandchildren grew up listening to her read books to them, eating her “fruit funs” and inventing games in her backyard and basement that provided her with yet more bruised knees and elbows to look after. They are all very thankful for her lessons on how to be properly “Scotch,” and when to “just not pay any attention.” She is survived by her three sons, Tom Mumaw and his wife, Kathy, Dan Mumaw and his wife, Nancy and Bill Mumaw and his wife, Cathy and eight grandchildren, David, Brian, Michele, Becky, Kristen, Jason (wife Karrie), Sarah and Elizabeth. For many years, this extended family has gathered every Sunday at Lois's home to visit and share Sunday dinner. Even after moving out on their own, the grandchildren who still live in town regularly show up on Sunday for a very punctual dinner. The family would like to thank Dr. Denise Bobovnyik, Dr. Chris Knight, MVI Hospice, and Home Instead for their care and support. Family and friends may call on Sunday, May 22, from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Rossi Brothers & Lellio Funeral Home at 4442 South Ave., in Boardman and from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Westminster Presbyterian Church, 119 Stadium Drive in Boardman, prior to the service to be held on Monday at 11 am. Memorial contributions may be made to The Boys and Girls Club of Youngstown, located at 2105 Oak Hill Ave., Youngstown, OH 44507. Family and friends may visit the Book of Memories at www.rossifunerals.com to view this tribute and send condolences to Lois' family.”.

The body will lie in state in the church from noon Saturday until the time of service. There are no calling hours. The family requests that material tributes take the form of contributions to the American Cancer Society or the church memorial fund of the church. Mr. Hull had served as the first superintendent of the Mahoning county schools and was responsible for the centralization of one-room school houses of the suburbs and the county's outer areas into the present Mahoning County school system. He had served as head of both the Canfield and Boardman school districts and had taught in both Canfield and Berlin Township schools during his 60-year career. As a fruit farmer, growing apples, pears, peaches and cantaloupes, Mr. Hull was well-known to many area residents. His large white barn located just south of Route 62 on his 80-acre farm was a landmark to many as it proudly proclaimed “Hull's Fruit Farm." The farm had been established prior to his marriage to the former Doris Humes in 1924. Mr. Hull was born in a log cabin in Ellsworth Township Oct. 3, 1881, a son of Eddie and Mary Ellen Baird Hull. He was the oldest living member of the Canfield Methodist Church, which he joined in 1901 and where he had taught the Men's Brotherhood Class since 1917. A graduate of the Northeast Ohio Normal school, Mr. Hull also received a degree from Wooster College. He began his teaching career in Berlin Township in the old Shelltown one-room schoolhouse and had taught at the Canfield School for a short time before taking the superintendent's post at Boardman. The Boardman school system had not yet been consolidated. In 1914 he became the first superintendent of the Mahoning county schools, a post which he held until 1933. As head of the county school system, he was responsible for working out many of the details of centralizing one-room schools into districts, many of which are still retained in the county education plan today. He also had served on the county Board of Education for 16 years before retiring in 1963. Mr. Hull became superintendent of Canfield schools and in 1934 and 1936 sought election as state representative, but lost. In 1964 the Mahoning County education association presented him a plaque commemorating his 60 years of service to the Mahoning county school system. As a member of the Ohio Horticultural Society he had served as president and also was a member of the Ohio Turkey Association and Argus Lodge F&AM of Canfield. Besides his wife, he leaves two daughters, Mrs. Spencer Balcomb of Amarillo, Texas, and Mrs. Jack Russell of Somerville, N. J.; five sons, Jerome Jr. of Lansing, Mich., David and Edward, both of Canfield, Dr. Franklin of Birmingham, Mich., and Dr. Walter of Zaire Africa, and 23 grandchildren.

Miller of Canfield township. He was a man of many talents, and gifted with a colorful personality. He was quite a conversationalist, and never seemed at a loss for words. He was plain and wholesome, open and generous. While he departed this life a little prematurely, perhaps, his life prior to his illness was full and meaningful, and dedicated to the work he loved - farming and its affiliations. Mr. Miller was devoted to his church, seldom missing a service; was treasurer for many years; a past president of the Methodist Men, and sang in the choir. He had a fairly strong voice, plenty of volume, and looking back, whether it was singing “Down at the Huskin' Bee” in Bill Rhodes' school wagon or “Bringing in the Sheaves' at the Cornersburg Methodist church, he put his heart and soul into the effort. Mr. Miller sometimes professed he had no desire for greatness, just wanted to plug along, as he put it. Perhaps he wasn't aware, himself, of some of his good qualities. Sometimes they're visible only to others. But he as it may, let it be said, he was a 'diamond in the rough.'”.

  881. Ibid., John Bakody was a native of Hungary, and a member of a titled family of that country and was a participant in the revolution of 1848. When that movement met with defeat he came to the United States with the noted Kossuth. He was well educated, but came to this country practically without means. He lived for some years at Mansfield, Ohio, and later conducted a jewelry business at Akron until his establishment was swept away by fire. On coming to Youngstown he continued the jewelry business, at first in the old Eagle Drug Store, then in the Fisher restaurant, and finally on North Phelps Street. One of his apprentices was John Brenner, well known in Youngstown. John Bakody, who died in 1910, at the age of eighty-two, was one of the promrnent characters of Youngstown. He became well versed in the English language after reaching this country, and enjoyed the friendship of the best people. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Christ, and a very religious man. He was one of the founders of the church of his denomination at Girard and always kept a membership there. His wife, Elizabeth Reasen, was born in Switzerland and was about twelve years of age when her parents came to America and settled at Akron.

  891. Obituary BRYSON, Warren L. 1856-1927 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 17 June 1927. “Warren L. Bryson, 71, fell dead in his automobile of heart trouble about 4 o'clock Monday afternoon. He had driven to his store after lunch and when evidence of rain appeared he got into the machine and returned to his home on East Main St. He drove into the driveway, stopped, and alighted. A clothes line had been stretched across the driveway and Mrs. Bryson told him to wait until she could elevate the line and he could drive into the garage. While doing this Mr. Bryson started to reenter the car and she noticed his head drop and body slump forward. She hurried to his side and found that her suspicion that he had expired suddenly was correct. Assistance came and he was carried into the house. Dr. Lawton said death was due to heart trouble from which he had suffered for some time. It is a coincidence that two Canfield citizens, M. H. Liddle and Mr. Bryson, died in automobiles within five days, their position in the cars when death overtook them being almost identical. Mr. Bryson, was born in Boardman Feb. 3, 1856, a son of Alexander and Maria Bryson, and came with his parents to Canfield more than 50 years ago. He was a fine violinist and for quite a number of years gave violin lessons, having pupils throughout the county. More than 38 years ago he engaged in general merchandising, being a member of the firm of Lynn, Bryson & Co., later engaging in the grocery business which he had since successfully followed, the last year occupying the same building in which he began merchandising, having his son Fred associated with him. He was a genial man and made many friends. Deceased was long a member of the Presbyterian church and affiliated with Argus Lodge, No. 545, F&AM, of which he was past master. On August 14, 1887, Mr. Bryson was united in marriage to Miss Mary Dodson who survives with two sons, Fred F., and Harold W., both of Youngstown. He also leaves three sisters and a brother, Mrs. Flora Ipe, Mrs. Leigh Crouse, Miss Corinne Bryson and William Bryson, all of Youngstown; also one granddaughter. Funeral services were held from the home Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock in charge of Rev. J. Carrol Wright, pastor of the Presbyterian church, and largely attended. Burial in the village cemetery.”.

Barber, 62, mayor of Beloit, a valued member of the Mahoning county fair board and widely known throughout the county, was almost instantly killed at 12:15 am Tuesday when his automobile struck a horse east of Edinburg on Route 18. Mr. and Mrs. Barber with a party of prominent Salem people were returning from Cleveland, where they had been guests of Dr. and Mrs. John Hanson. Dr. Hanson, who operates a clinic hospital, is a cousin of Mrs. Barber. Miss Margaret Dickson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Allen Dickson of Ellsworth, is employed at the clinic and was accompanying the Barber's home to spend a week's vacation with her parents and brother, who is critically ill. The accident occurred shortly after Mr. Barber turned from Route 14 onto Route 18 to reach Miss Dickson's home. The horse, which had strayed onto the highway, was hidden from view by the crest of a hill and Mr. Barber did not have an opportunity to stop. The animal was killed. Mr. Barber, born Jan. 28, 1879, at Berlin Center, was a son of Frank and Sarah Barber. He had spent most of his life in the vicinity of Beloit, working as a carpenter-contractor in addition to his mayoralty duties. He owned an antique shop at Beloit. Mr. Barber was married in 1900 to Ida Stanley, who died in 1920. In 1923 he was wed to Ruth Allen of Salem, who survives together with one son, Leroy H.

Newspaper - Youngstown Telegram, Wed, 28 Aug 1935. “Homer Barber, Beloit Antique Dealer, Rules Horse And Poultry Divisions At Mahoning County's Fair Board Member Works Hard, Loses Weight During Canfield Event Hobby Became His Business After Years As Farmer And Contractor” By Esther Hamilton Photo and caption: “Homer Barber, Canfield Fair Board member, has made his lifelong hobby of collecting antiques into his present business. " His profession of cabinet maker, he turns to account by duplicating antique pieces.” “Antique lovers will find the answer in all their dreams at the home of Homer Barber in Beloit. Mr. Barber is a member of the Canfield Fair Board. He has been a farmer, contractor, carpenter, and deputy sheriff. Now in middle-life, he has settled down and made his hobby his business. It is quite by accident that Mr. Barber is on the Canfield Fair Board. Seven years ago C. A. Cover, a member of the board, stopped at his residence and asked him to recommend a good man from the southern end of the county for the board. Very obligingly Mr. Barber suggested one man in particular and gave him the highest recommendation. Mr. Cover thanked him. A few days later a letter came from the board telling Mr. Barber that he had been unanimously chosen to represent the southern end of the county, so he accepted. He has charge of the poultry, ponies, show horse and work horse departments. At most fairs one man is assigned to each division. This gives an idea of the work Mr. Barber has to do. He usually loses a good bit of weight during the fair but admits he could lose more “without it doing much harm.” Pleased At Horses The return of horses to popularity is the thing that pleases Mr. Barber most about the fair. All his life he has liked a good horse. He is glad now to see the interest in them revived and proud of the fact that the finest animals in the county do their stuff at the Canfield Fair. Some time in the next few years he believes brand new quarters will be provided for the work horses, now the aristocrats of the fair. Mr. Barber is the son of the late Frank Barber, farmer and contractor, and was born on a farm near Berlin Center. He went to the district school and at 11 his family moved to Beloit. He has a speaking acquaintance with everybody within miles of Beloit. His father built houses and barns during the slack season. Mr. Barber as a small boy learned to use a saw and hammer. “As long as I can remember I've known how to use tools,” he said. “Father put them in my hand and I went to work.” For a good many years the elder Mr. Barber was superintendent of the Youngstown Paving Brick & Coal Co. He got the son a job running an engine. The boy turned out a man's work. At 15 his father was charging the company 75 cents a day for his work. Young Homer got an occasional quarter from his father for spending money. The rest went into the family till. The first half dollar he ever earned was when at 16 he helped a neighbor, Ralph Urmson, with the threshing. “I thought I'd get rich pretty fast if I could just make that much every day,” Mr. Barber says today. The Barber family later moved to the old home at Salem and Mr. Barber prizes the deed to that property given to his great grandfather, Jacob Barber, and signed by President James Monroe. Ran Father's Farm He ran the farm for his father and at 21 made his first “big money.” A neighbor got him on the Election Board at $3 a day. “I thought that a few days like that and I'd be set for life,” Mr. Barber recalls. “Nobody but a farm boy, who had never handled more than a half dollar in his life, could realize what those three one dollar bills meant to me.” He ran the farm on shares for his father and at 28 with $1000 saved bought his own farm near Sebring. During the slack winter months he patented a device for a railroad joint and a half interest in the patent, sold to an Alliance man helped him stock his farm. He rented 100 acres additional and finally got this for $1000 from the owner who lived in a distant city. He had no intentions of buying it, but the offer was made and he purchased it very much against his wife's wishes. “It meant long hours in the fields to pay such a huge sum and she thought I shouldn't tackle it,” he says, “automobiles were coming in and I wanted one. I told her that 100 acres would some day buy me a car and eventually it did. The 100 acres were traded for a double house and a single house in Alliance and $450 cash. I repaired the homes myself and the income came in very handy.” By this time young Barber was getting pretty well known in the neighborhood. He was dabbling a little in politics, doing a good bit of carpenter work and gathering up the old family furniture scattered all over the county. “I always liked old things that were good and my interest in antiques came almost through my natural love for the things that had belonged to my people and my own interest in good woodwork.” Worked As Carpenter He worked 10 hours a day as a carpenter and came home at night and ploughed by moonlight or with a lantern on his farm machinery. “And,” he says with pardonable pride, “I had pretty nice crops for a fellow doing two men's work.” Money came faster when he went to work in Alliance as a carpenter at $3 for a nine hour day. Twenty-two years ago he moved “into town,” which is Beloit to Mr. Barber. He was elected mayor and when Paul Lyden was sheriff he appointed Mr. Barber as a deputy to keep law and order in his district. Mr. Barber took his work seriously. He collected $3000 in dog taxes that had never been collected before and quit when the county commissioners refused his expense bill of $41 for the use of his car in seeing the farmers. He carried dog licenses in his car which made it easy for the farmer to get them and he made regular trips through the country to raise all the money he could and at the same time do the farmers a favor. Gradually the old flour mill at the rear of his residence got more cluttered with antiques that he had collected at country sales and auctions. Today not only the entire first floor but the second floor of the old mill is crowded with high-boys, curly-maple dressers, four poster beds, spinning wheels and grandfather's clocks. His own home is almost entirely furnished with beautiful pieces that he has made or refinished. Works In Winter During the long winter months he gets out his tools and copies pieces shown in the antique magazines which are valued at fabulous sums. A man will come in and want a rocker like his mother used to have in the family farm house kitchen. A woman often wants a duplicate of a most unusual piece. He makes all of the furniture by hand, promises no special deadline time and works at them when the spirit moves him. “I do pretty much as I like,” he says. “I like antiques and there is nothing in the world … a buyer at an auction. Folks invite me to their homes to show me a real antique and I can tell without touching the piece if it's a factory-made piece. I don't like to hurt their feelings, but if I think they won't mind too much I tell them. At times I say nothing.” The pieces turned out in his shop are scattered all over the United States. Note: Ended here - became illegible - last paragraph Mr. Barber has looked at life like this: “I tr____man be a man of______he won't be a ma__him.”.

  1025. Obituary BOND, Orpha 1.TRUESDALE nee PARKER Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 9 Jan 1895.
  1026. Ibid., Death of Mrs. Orpha Bond A happy meeting soon followed by a sorrowful parting. Nearly three weeks ago quite a number of the good people of the Congregational Church of Canfield, together with many elderly acquaintances and the surviving children of Mrs. Orpha Bond gave her a happy surprise at her residence in this place, to offer their congratulations and good cheer on the occasion of her 90th birthday anniversary. She had been for some days absent visiting in Leetonia and had only arrived at her home a few minutes before her many friends burst upon her with their hearty good wishes that her happy days might be prolonged for many years. This good old lady received these congratulations graciously and joyfully, and seemed as happy as the happiest in the enjoyment of good health and a contented mind. How quickly our joys and sorrows alternate! A few days after this pleasant event, Mrs. Bond, while engaged in reading, was suddenly smitten with apoplexy and a few hours afterward the spirit that animated and gave such a charm to a long and useful life, passed away Jan. 6th, 1895. “Aunt Orpha,” as she was familiarly called, was born in Connecticut, Dec. 20th, 1804, being a daughter of Lovel Parker, who with his family came to Ohio in 1816, settling in Kinsman, Trumbull county, where in 1830, she was married to her first husband, James Truesdale, and very soon thereafter settled in Canfield, where her husband engaged in the manufacture of edged tools. The business was of great advantage to Canfield and surrounding towns; but as the fruits of the energy and enterprise of Mr. Truesdale developed into success, he became by reason of exposure and over exertion, a helpless invalid, and a few years thereafter died in 1845, or about 50 years ago. On the 2nd day of April, 1856, Mrs. Orpha Truesdale married Mr. Elijah Bond. Mr. Bond is remembered by very many of our people as a man of intelligence and great moral worth, highly respected by all who knew him. He lived to a serene old age, and died on the 3rd day of March, 1878. The fruits of this first marriage referred to, was the birth of seven children, but only three lived to maturity, Hannah, the oldest, married Frederick Harrington, at present treasurer of Ashtabula county. She died a number of years ago. James L. Truesdale of Leetonia , who is well and favorably known as a public spirited and enterprising gentleman; and Julia, who married Mr. Barker of Rock Creek, O., who is also a highly respected citizen. Miss Hattie Bond is a step-daughter of the deceased, and deserves great credit for her devotion and care for the comfort of her aged step-mother. J. Truesdale [nephew], Canfield, Jan. 9, 1895.

Mr. Fowler's maternal great-grandfather, Jacob Barnes, brought his family from Virginia in 1826 and purchased a large farm two miles east of Canfield, now known as the Western Reserve Historical Society's Loghurst Farm.

  1075. Research - Lauth, Wendell F. & Neff, Jennifer L. Submitted to WRHS in Aug 2006 By Wendell F. Lauth and Jennifer L. Neff In 1818 Conrad Naff Jr. purchased the family homestead, built in 1805, by his father, Conrad Naff Sr. and in 1824 Conrad Jr. was granted a license to keep a house of public entertainment at his residence. The cost was $5.00 for one year. In the journal entry his name was spelled "Nafe". Today descendants spell it Neff. The Naff's hewn log home was situated at the crest of a high hill along the main east-west road, now Route 224, which was used by travelers journeying from Pittsburgh to Cleveland or Akron. Such trips generally took two weeks, one way. About the Stage Route: Regular stage lines carrying mail, passengers and light baggage from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania to Cleveland, Ohio began in the 1820's. The line of particular interest to the Conrad Naff House [Loghurst] is the Pittsburg to Beaver, Pennsylvania Route which then traveled through Griersburg, Petersburg, Poland, Boardman, Canfield, Ellsworth, Milton, Palmyra, Edinburg, Ravenna, Stow, Hudson, Twinsburg, Bedford, Newburg and ending in Cleveland, a distance of about 150 miles. By April 1826 a stage line operated regularly twice a week between Cleveland and Pittsburgh. In 1825 Conrad Jr. was late in renewing his tavern license which resulted in his indictment by the State of Ohio in Trumbull Co. [now Mahoning Co.] for keeping a tavern without a license. He pled guilty and was fined $5.00. 1825 was not a good year for Conrad Jr. On Feb. 17th Henry Naff, his older brother, died at the age of 36 and then on Dec. 18th his three-year-old son Samuel died. It is very likely that the Naffs switched horses for the stagecoaches and provided straw mattresses for weary travelers. Besides hard currency, new settlers brought news from the Eastern states, a difficult commodity to come by on the early frontier. A story is told that once a traveler brought a nailed-up box that had the delicious aroma of apples wafting from it. The stranger was disinclined to share and temptation proved too strong for the Naff children. By some means they gained entry and took a few apples from the container. Conrad Jr. married Polly Kline in 1814. She had grown-up in a stagecoach stop environment, namely the Buckhorn Hotel and Tavern which was located in Northampton Co. (now Schuylkill Co.), Hosensack, Pennsylvania. Her father Abraham Kline ran the Buckhorn, which he had purchased from his father in 1797 when Polly was 5-years-old, before selling it and moving to Trumbull Co. (now Mahoning Co.) Ohio in 1806. The Buckhorn serviced a stagecoach line from Philadelphia to Allentown. Another of Abraham's daughters, Betsey, married John Naff in 1820. These brothers and sisters lived on neighboring farms in Canfield Twp. until 1826 when Conrad Jr. sold his Naff property, where the stagecoach stop was located, to George Mygatt and moved to Brimfield, Portage Co. Ohio.

  1087. Obituary BARNES, Jacob Henry, 1819-1897 Bement Register, 29 Apr 1897. AN OLD RESIDENT GONE Jacob Henry Barnes an old and respected Citizen passes away Jacob Henry Barnes died at his home on Macon street, Friday evening of blood poison. Mr. Barnes first saw the light of day in Surrey County, Virginia, February 18, 1819. His early days were spent at this place but at the age of eight his parents moved to Mahoning county, Ohio at which place he resided for [39?] years. It was during his stay at this place that he became actively engaged in the underground railway movement. His father's house was one of the stations at which the negroes stayed, while on their way north. The penalty for housing the negroes and helping them on their way was severe, that is if the southerners could learn who it was and catch them. Those who aided in this work were generally treated to a coat of tar and feathers when caught. Mr. Barnes often spoke of having smelled the tar and seen the feathers, but was fortunate enough to escape punishment. At one time when he and his father were delivering speeches for the abolition cause they narrowly escaped death. It was only by riding the swiftest horses that they escaped. Mr. Barnes was married to Elizabeth Kimmel in Youngstown, Oho in 1844. To them were born eight children, of whom but three are living. Marcelous and Irene have resided with him and Kimmel in Nebraska. In 1855 they move to Bement. His wife preceded him to the grave a little over three years. Mr. Barnes served Piatt county as its coroner for 18 years and during all of that time proved himself an efficient official. He has held various township and village offices. The funeral services were held at the house, Sunday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. C.E. Evans officiating. The remains were laid to rest in the Bement cemetery.

  1102. Obituary DOUD, Levi Barnes, 1840-1905 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, Jan 1906. “Concerning the recent death of Levi B. Doud at Chicago the Daily Drovers Journal said in part: Again death has chosen a high mark in the ranks of the “old guard” at the Yards. In the death of Levi B. Doud, head of the firm of Doud & Keefer and for a period of twelve years president of the National Live Stock bank, there has been lost to the Yards a business man who for years stood as a shining mark for emulation by the younger business men at the Yards. Death came to the former banker and trader at his home, 3257 Michigan avenue, Saturday evening after a long period of suffering with an incurable affection of the heart. For the last three years, since his first attack of the fatal malady, he had under the advice of his physician, traveled extensively in all sections of the world. Two months ago he returned from his trip across the water, where he had passed some months at Naucbeim, in the hope that the celebrated bath at that famous foreign resort would do him good. The journey home was a distressing one to his family, as it was feared he could not survive until he reached home. Levi Barnes Doud was born in Berlin, Mahoning county, Ohio, April 7, 1840; son of James and Mary Doud (nee Barnes); was educated in the public schools and Salem (Ohio) academy; married Dec. 24, 1875 to Elizabeth R. Durham; one daughter, Marion; remained on the farm until his twentieth year, then established as a cattle dealer at Allegheny, Pa.; removed to Chicago, 1864, and continued the cattle business, still being senior member of the live stock commission firm of Doud & Keefer. Mr. Doud was ever a prominent member of the Chicago Live Stock Exchange and served as its treasurer, later as its president and at the same time was chosen president of the National Live Stock Exchange, which position he held for two years. He was one of the founders of the National Live Stock bank and served twelve years as its president, serving year after year with the rush of other business affairs when he had long requested the privilege of resigning.”.

  1114. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Fri, 8 April 1898 Article No. 62. Selected part re: Eli and Nancy Barnes Neff Eli married Nancy, a daughter of Jacob Barnes, and for many years owned and resided on the farms now occupied by Joshua and William Kyle, and likely built the large dwelling in which Joshua resides. Eli, while a resident of Canfield was a stirring moneymaking farmer and cattle dealer. For some time before leaving Canfield he commenced loaning money with Kansas lands as mortgage security and finally some where near 1873 sold his land and other property here and moved to Kansas and engaged extensively in the loaning of money. As a result, word has come back that Eli now owns more land than he can profitably handle. Some of his relatives here place his real estate possession at from 7,000 to 10,000 acres. Eli is said to have five living children. .

  1116. Obituary NEFF, Ella, Herald, Apr 1875, Apr 1875. Transcribed by Jennifer Neff, 2005 DIED In this city, on Wednesday morning April 14th 1875, in the fifteenth year of her age, Miss Ella, one of the twin daughters of Mr. Eli Neff. Our community has again been shocked by a very sudden death. This time one of the most interesting of the family is taken so suddenly that we can scarcely realize that she is dead. Ella was an unusually interesting child, and was admired by everybody that knew her. She had been complaining somewhat for ten days previous to her death, and was only confined to her bed one day. Thus has another loved one been snatched from a happy family circle. In such only a few short days ago that we saw her as she passed going to school, and she seemed a picture of health, beauty, and intelligence; always kind and affectionate to her associates; she was dear to us all. But now ”there'll be one vacant chair.”To Effie, her twin sister, we especially offer our most sincere sympathies; she will miss her dear sister most of all. And to the father, mother, sisters and brother we would say, “The Lord hath given and the Lord hath taken away; blessed to the name of the Lord.” She has gone, we trust to that fair land where the bloom of a new birth will never fade from her cheeks. Health there will never be swallowed by disease. There the smile of her Savior will be the future of her soul forever, and there may we all - father, mother, sisters, brother and friends - meet her, when our pilgrimage on earth is ended. Ella, Thou was mild and lovely, Gentle as the summer breeze, Pleasant as the air of evening - When it floats among the leaves, Peaceful in thy silent slumber, Peaceful in the grave so low, Thou no more will join our number, Thou no more our songs shall know. Dearest sister, thou hast left us, Here the loss we deeply feel, But tho God's light hast bereft us, He can still our sorrow heal. Yet again we hope to meet thee, When the day of life is final, Then in heaven with joy greet thee, Where no farewell tear is shed. Comment: Ella's obituary came from the Herald. The Herald was a local newspaper for Mahoning Co. OH which included Canfield. It began publication in 1860. The Herald, like other papers, accepted through a courtesy act, some articles, including obituaries, from other sources or places. The obituary for Ella was probably contributed from the city where her death occurred. It is documented that the family moved from Canfield to Kansas in 1874. By the preponderance of evidence I [Jennifer Neff] believe she most likely died in Humboldt, Allen Co. KS. To date no marker has been located for her.

  1264. Find A Grave - Internet. Find A Grave Memorial# 57367195 - JoAnne Keene (#47076337) jakeene@tampabay.rr.com Art was the grandfather of my step-daughters, Jamie & Lea Bates. An avid golfer, until no longer able, he was always interested in intellectual discussions. At times he could be very opinionated, but his views softened as time went on. He originally came out to California with Martha mid century and they built a home in Encanto, CA, a suburb of San Diego. Since I didn't really know Art while he was working, I don't know much about what he did for a living, but I do know that he was a male model for clothing, as shown in the photo. (Caption: Art loved this photo of him modeling for Nelson Moore Clothing in San Diego, probably from the mid to late 1950's.) In his retirement, he made it to the golf course quite often with his friends, and played the violin when the mood struck. He suffered from emphysema (a long-term, progressive disease of the lung that primarily causes shortness of breath) and eventually his breathing became more and more labored. In his final year or so, he was confined to bed, though still lucid and able to converse. The day after he was moved into a care facitily, he passed away. Arthur Watson got his middle name from "Watson" P. Darrow, his grandfather. We miss you Art!.

Excerpt from Gertrude Sahle Correspondence to Jennifer Neff, 2 May 2005 "You mentioned you were listening to Edelweiss - this was one of Emma's (her sister) favorites. It is a nice song. I have an Edelweiss flower in my desk but it is all dried up or I would send it to you. I don't know if you know the legend of it, so I'll try to tell you. As you may already know, this is a flower that only blooms high in the Alps, in crevasses which make it very difficult to obtain, and the plant is low to the earth - much like violets - and sparse. When a young man presents an edelweiss to a young lady; it means he is very seriously thinking of marriage. I wouldn't be able to prove it, but it's a nice story!! One of our 2nd cousins gave us one and he told us the tale.".

  1321. Vindicator Youngstown, Mahoning Co. OH, Youngstown Vindicator, Th, 14 Jan 1954 Front Page. Barn, Stock Destroyed in $75,000 Fire 62-Year-Old Structure Is Lost; Beard, Sons Can't Save Cattle One of Mahoning County's largest barns was virtually destroyed and valuable livestock lost in a $75,000 fire which broke out on the Arthur Beard farm in New Buffalo Road near Western Reserve Road early today. Although Boardman Township fire department officials listed loss at between $40,000 to $50,000, Arthur Beard said his loss is about $75,000 in building, machinery, livestock and feed. The large barn, erected in 1892 by Beard's grandfather, Sylvanus Beard, was 100 feet square and had seven gables. The farm is on New Buffalo Road, about a mile south of Western Reserve Road. Daughter Saw Light Beard said the fire was discovered at 4:25 a.m. by his daughter, Mrs. Caroline Gould, who was awakened by a bright light in the sky. She looked out the window saw flames and shouted fire. Beard and his two sons, John, 17, and Richard, 21, rushed to the barn and attempted to drive some 75 head of frightened cattle and horses from their stalls. Moat of the building was aflame and part of the roof had collapsed. John Beard received a deep cut on his right arm while attempting to drive the cattle from the blazing building. A 900-pound Guernsey bull and 10 head of cattle were lost. Beard said four thoroughbred horses, three brood mares and a stallion, which had been driven from the building, raced back into the barn and were destroyed. Two tractors, a truck and threshing machine, hay and grain were also destroyed. Firemen from Beaver, Boardman and Canfield townships watered down nearby buildings but were unable to save the barn. Firemen said that dry hay and grain stored in the old structure fed the blaze. Comment from Jennifer L. Neff, 2005 My father, Robert H. Neff, drove me past the spot where this large barn once stood. He was very sad to see it gone. He remembers visiting there and he said that the barn was the biggest one that he had ever seen - and also one of the best-looking.

  1331. Find A Grave - Internet. jhb (#47106420) I am not 100% sure if she is buried under the name of Katherina Heibele or Catherine Hively. According to family members who visited the site in the 1970's "the date of death of Katerina Heibele, wife of Johann J. has been read as May 3, 1891, age 88-3-3, from the tombstone in Dutch Ridge burial ground; however the tombstone information was very hard to read". To us, their letter indicates that she is buried under Katerina Heibele. They say that "Johann Jacob and Katrina are buried near the cemetery entrance on the east end". There are a few other Catherine and Catharine Hivelys in the cemetery who lived about the same time which has been confusing to family researchers. Katherina and Jacob lived in Green Township; some of the others she has been confused with, lived in Salem Township, which is nearby. Her father's will gives her father's name as Henry Beard, her mother as Eve Beard on the 1850 Census. One obituary of her husband spells her maiden name as Barth. According to her 1880 Census, both of her parents were born in Baden, Germany. Her daughter, Susannah Hively (1827-1899) is also buried here along with two of his sons, George and Jacob D. She had 10 children in total.

  1397. Ibid., ps659-660. Excerpt from biographical sketch of Monroe Beard [1853-1925] Until he was 17 years of age, Mr. Beard attended school and assisted on the home farm. He then went to Allegheny, where he worked for six months at the butcher's trade, being afterwards engaged for three years at a meat business at Youngstown. For the following two years he was associated with a brother in the stock business, after which he took a trip through Woodson and Allen Counties, Kansas. He then returned to Ohio with the intention, however, of going back, but illness preventing, he became again associated in the stock and farming business with his brother, with whom he continued to be associated for 22 years. Comment from Jennifer L. Neff Eli and Nancy Barnes Neff moved from Canfield Tp, Mahoning Co. OH to Woodson -Allen Co. KS in 1874. Their oldest son, Omer, was born in 1854, and was a contemporary of Monroe Beard. [A more complicated explanation is that Monroe Beard's brother George Sylvanus Beard married Caroline Neff, Eli Neff's niece.] In any case, it seems likely that seeing the Neffs was one of the reasons for Monroe's journey.

Almus Beardsley, 94, the oldest resident of Canfield township, died last Sunday night at his home two miles northwest of the village. He had been in poor health for some time and his death was not unexpected. He was born in Canfield township Jan. 2, 1829, a son of Philo and Lois Beardsley, early settlers of this section. All his long and useful life he followed farming and stock raising. For years he was extensively engaged in the breeding of Shetland ponies, shipping them to all parts of the country. Later he went into the Jersey cattle business having associated with him his son, Hiram, and together they made Dean Hill Dairy Farm famous the country over, animals bred by them being in great demand at fancy prices. He was a rugged and determined man and until recent years insisted on taking active part in work on the extensive farm. In 1854 he was married to Mary P. Dean, who passed away in 1905. Two daughters preceded him in death. He leaves two sons, Ensign N. Beardsley of Green township and Hiram J. Beardsley of Canfield. Mr. Beardsley early in life united with the Christian church, long serving as an officer and taking great interest in its affairs. Funeral services held Wednesday afternoon from his late residence were conducted by Rev. M. J. Grable of Salem, a large concourse of relatives and friends being in attendance. Interment was made in Dean Hill cemetery, only a few rods distant from the Beardsley home.

She had been ailing for several weeks but her condition did not cause alarm until a week before her death. Mrs. Wilson was born in Canfield township July 14, 1866, and had therefore just completed her 43rd year. She was married about 20 years ago to Mr. Wilson and from that union three children were born; Wilbur, aged 18; Earl, aged 16 and Pearl, aged 15. Besides her husband and children she leaves her father, Almus Beardsley, and two brothers, Ensign of Green township and Hiram of Canfield. Mrs. Wilson was a member of the Christian church of Canfield, having united with that church when she was a young girl. For many years she had been a member of the church choir and was prominently identified with every branch of church work. She was a noble Christian woman, a loving wife and a devoted and affectionate mother. Mrs. Wilson was an alumnus of the North-Eastern Ohio Normal College, having graduated in the class of '87 and at the time of her death was treasurer of the Alumni association of the institution. She was one of the first lady students to receive the degree of A. B. To her a great deal of credit is due for the successful meetings and banquette held by the Alumni association in recent years. Funeral services held from the family residence Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock were largely attended, Rev. D. D. Burt, pastor of the Christian church, being in charge. Interment was made in the Dean Hill cemetery, nearly opposite the girlhood home of the deceased.

  1451. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Fri, 11 Mar 1898. Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 1898 Feb 11 - Article No. 54 Re: Capt. Philo Beardsley & Family CANFIELD IN EARLY TIMES. HISTORY COMPILED BY AN AGED PIONEER. THE CHANGES OF A CENTURY NOTED. ANOTHER INSTALLMENT OF AN INTERESTING SERIES Written in a Highly Entertaining Style By Dr. Jackson Truesdale of Canfield. ARTICLE NUMBER 54. Excerpt: We left Curtis, a younger brother of Philo, with his wife, Sophia, back in 1816 as they were about for the first time to step upon the farm which was to be to them a life work in clearing, building, cultivating the soil and afterwards harvesting its products. Both were quite young and we may suppose that each possessed the inspiration and hopefulness of youth. With Sophia the transition from a well-established home in the east to a rude cabin in a wilderness was indeed great, but we hear of no homesickness or repining. Her parentage was good, being a descendant of Rev. Thomas Hanford, the first minister of Norwalk, Conn., and continued as such for 41 years. About the first work Mr. Beardsley did was the clearing of 10 acres of land and sowing it in wheat. The seed cost him $2 per bushel. When this crop was ready for market it was worth 37 cents a bushel. After many years of constant toil, we find the family housed in a large two-story dwelling with all the necessary out-buildings, surrounded by fenced fields and the forest pushed far to the rear. The whole lives of Mr. Beardsley and wife seemed wrapped up in their children, and to the establishment and maintenance in Canfield of the Protestant Episcopal Church of which they were devoted members. It was at their instance more than anyone else that a neat church building was erected nearly opposite our dwelling on East street. St. Stephen's Parish for a time seemed to promise well. But deaths and removals gradually wore it out of existence, so that at this writing not a vestige of building or church remains. This by no means proves that the zeal, labor and expense of these people resulted in no permanent good. Curtis Beardsley was quiet, modest and unassuming in demeanor - a man of few words, but they fitly spoken. He might be slow to make a promise, but when made it was reliable. He was firm in his quiet way to “maintain the right as God gave him to see it.” “Aunt Sophia,” while busy as a bee with her hands could at the same time use her vocal organs when necessary. Curtis Beardsley was born March 1, 1797, and died Jan. 15, 1876, aged nearly 79 years. For a few years before his death he became crippled and otherwise infirm but almost to the last he kept on his feet, performing such labor as he could. His aged companion survived him many years until it seemed that the death messenger was loth to do his work. At length he came and on Jan. 15, 1894, she ceased to live. She was born in Norwalk, Conn., May 12, 1798. These dates will show that she died in her 96th year. After the death of her husband, with her daughters Eliza and Lucy, she made her home in the village. After the death of these daughters she returned to the old homestead. Mr. and Mrs. Beardsley were the parents of eight children. We will note them in order, but with most will be compelled to omit dates. The first was a son that died a few days after its birth. The second birth was Wm. Hanford, the only child now living, who is in his 79th year. His residence is now and has been for many years in Geauga county. For a wife he married Mary, a daughter of Henry Edsall. The third child was Mary L., who married A. L. VanGorder of Warren. They raised a family of children. She died in 1859. The next birth was Anna S., born in 1824, died in 1844. The fifth child, Eliza M., never married and died in 1879 at the age of 52 deceased. Next comes Sarah Ann, who married P. A. Spicer of Berlin. A short married live and the birth of one child completed her history. Lucy M., the seventh child, lived a useful life. For more than 30 years she was a faithful, conscientious and successful teacher. I knew enough of Eliza and Lucy to be able to say in all candor that they were the “excellent ones of earth.” The youngest child of Curtis and Sophia Beardsley was Henry C., born March 12, 1838. He married Mary J., a daughter of C.C. Hine. Henry in the prime of life and at the time he was most needed for the support of his family and an aged and dependent mother, was called upon to give up an honorable and useful life. The grim monster does not select his victims as we would if we had his work to do. Henry died in April 15, 1887. His widow is now a resident of the village. Henry and Mary were the parents of Oda and Edward C. The former married George Woolf, now of Cleveland. She was a well educated and accomplished lady, and it was sad, while yet in the bloom of life, to called away. Edward C. married a daughter of Clark Ewing. He occupies the old farm and in connection with a young son are the only representatives left in Canfield of Curtis and Sophia Beardsley. Edward starts off well, and why should he not if “blood tells.” In his veins may be found the blood of the Beardsleys, Hanfords, Hines, Schofields, and Wadsworths. J. TRUESDALE [To be continued.].

  1453. Obituary BEARDSLEY, Henry C. 1838-1887 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 22 Apr 1887. “Died on April 15, 1887, at his residence in Canfield, Ohio, Mr. Henry C. Beardsley, in the 50th year of his age.” “Mr. Beardsley was born in the north-western part of Canfield township, March 12, 1838 and was therefore, at the time of his death, 49 years, 1 month and 3 days of age. The deceased was a farmer by occupation and always lived on the old homestead in Canfield township where he was born, and where death at last so unduly overtook and cut him down in the vigor of manhood. His parents came from Connecticut at an early date in the history of the county, and they and their friends who came with them from New England, and their descendants, have done much to develop the resources of this part of Ohio. The Beardsley family is certainly one of the largest in the state, and it has representatives in almost every honorable profession and industry. Of the deceased, Mr. H. C. Beardsley, personally, but little need be said for his host of friends and acquaintances. He was active and industrious, and had a disposition so cheerful and full of hope. That he was always ready and waiting to speak words of comfort and sympathy to those around him. It might truly be said of him as he lay in his coffin that he had many friends to mourn his loss. And not an enemy in the world. Throughout the entire course of his twelve weeks of suffering previous to his death, he did not lose hope, until within the last twenty-four hours. His cheerfulness was almost un-intermitting even at times when it was plain his suffering must have been extreme. When at last he was compelled to give up the pleasant hope of remaining longer with his little family, he was resigned and willing to answer the call from the Spirit Land. He died at peace with his fellow men and with God, and in the sweet by and by he will await his friends with the same smile they had seen so often while he was here below.” Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 6 May 1887 - Estate “Almus Beardsley has been appointed administrator of the estate of H. C. Beardsley, late of Canfield township, deceased.”.

Research by Neff, Jennifer. -----Original Message----- From: ORIGINality: Genealogy Consultant Service [mailto:originality@att.net] Sent: Friday, January 21, 2011 10:55 PM To: ffen@zoominternet.net Subject: Beardsley family in Mahoning County, OH Hi Ms. Neff, I am researching the Beardsley family for a friend of mine. She is a descendant of one of Daniel T. Beardsley's children-Emily Lee Beardsley. I am trying to find more information about Emily Lee. Ultimately, I am hoping to find a birth record for her. I saw your posting on “Find A Grave” about Daniel T. Beardsley (and his ancestors) and I was hoping that you could point me in the right direction to find more information about Emily Lee. I know that she married John Henry Rose and had 3 sons: Waldo Emerson, Elbert Beardsley and John Leland. They lived in Ohio for a while, but moved to Illinois eventually. John Henry Rose was a clergyman, but I am not sure with which denomination. Any help that you could give regarding Emily Lee Beardsley or any of the Beardsley family would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time, L. Response: Hi, I am afraid that what I know is posted on Find A Grave. I looked at the censuses and found what you probably already have. Here it is anyway. ROSE, Emily Lee nee BEARDSLEY Mrs. John Henry Rose Daughter of Daniel T. and Mary E. Bingham Beardsley B. Aug 1859 in Ellsworth Twp., Mahoning Co. OH Censuses: Emily Beardsley was 10m/12m in the 1860 US census for Ellsworth Twp., Mahoning Co. OH in 1860. The census was taken on June 13, 1860 so she was born in Aug 1859. In the 1870 census she was living with her parents and a brother, Daniel Waldo Beardsley in Wayne, Ashtabula Co. OH. In the 1880 census, her parents and brother were still living in Wayne and she is listed in their household as wife of John H. Rose whose age was 21. In the 1900 census Emily and John H. Rose are listed in the US Census in Hamilton, Hancock Co. IL. They have been married 20 years and have had five children - three living; Elbert B. b. July 1885 in OH, Emerson W. (b. in OH listed as 17 in Apr ? - looks like 1887 to me which would make him 13) and John Leland b. Aug 1896 in IL. A servant, Mary Birkett, is also listed in the household. In the 1910 Emily and son are listed in the US Census for Carthage Twp. in Hancock Co. I didn't find her in the 1920 census. Did she die between 1910-1920? Marry someone else?

Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 5 April 1889 “Mrs. Oda Beardsley Woolf, wife of George R. Woolf, died in Beaumont, California, on the 28th ult, after an illness of more than a year with lung trouble. Her age was a little less than 22 years. Her remains will be brought to Canfield for burial. They will arrive here the last of this week or the first of next, when the time of funeral will be announced.” Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 12 Apr 1889 “Berlin Center - A number of our citizens attended the funeral of Mrs. G. R. Woolf, in Canfield. Mrs. W. had many warm friends in Berlin and her untimely death is deplored by all. We extend to Mr. Woolf our heart felt sympathy.” Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 12 April 1889 “Mrs. George R. Woolf, who was Miss Oda H. Beardsley, died near Beaumont, San Bernardino county, California, on Thursday morning, March 28, 1889. Her body was embalmed at that place and brought to Canfield and buried beside her father in the cemetery here on last Tuesday. The deceased was well known in Canfield where her girlhood was so happily spent, and also in Berlin where she lived with her husband for five years. Her failing health and last sickness were a surprise to those who knew her best. Her health seemed to be perfect until March, 1888, when consumption, probably inherited, attacked her health and strength, and gave startling evidence of what the end would be if something were not quickly done to arrest its progress. Her physician, Dr. W. K. Hughes, of Berlin Center, suggested a change of climate as the only resource. Mr. Woolf made immediate arrangements and on July 12th, 1888, started with her to southern California. The climate of that beautiful country proved very beneficial to her lungs, and her friends hoped for her speedy recovery. Unfortunately, however, the disease, leaving her lungs, settled in her throat, becoming more and more painful and distressing until death finally released her from her sufferings. Mrs. Woolf had unshaken faith in her hope of future happiness, and looked forward with pleasure to a meeting with those she loved who had gone before. Her death was beautiful and suggestive. Without a struggle or a sign of pain she passed the dark river whose further shore had long seemed brightest to her. Her surroundings must have been providential; they were in such happy unison with the bright and blameless life that was going out. The sun was just appearing in the bright semi-tropic sky, and his rays crowned with beauty those mighty mansions capped with eternal snow. The canyons and valley were a wilderness of new flowers, and spring had filled the orchards with blossoms and the music of birds. The beauty and softened grandeur of the landscape and the purity of the air and sunlight were all like Oda in her last hours. Her funeral was attended by her friends in large numbers from far and near. The public schools from which she graduated and in which she afterwards taught, attended in a body, marching near the casket at the head of the processions. A cross, the gift of her near relatives, and a harp, the offering of the Berlin M. E. Sunday school of which she was a member, both made of the most beautiful flowers, though voiceless, spoke kindly of the love of many with whom she formerly associated who will meet her no more in this world.”.

She arose at 7 o'clock, and after partially dressing herself, came down stairs and built a fire in an old-fashioned fire place in the kitchen. While engaged in this work what little clothing she had on caught fire and the unfortunate woman was soon enveloped in flames. She rushed out into the yard and tore a sheet from a clothes line which she wrapped about her, but at this time nearly every thread of clothing she had on was burned off. She returned to the house, and going to the door of her mother's bed-room, which adjoins the kitchen, coolly informed her that she had been burned to death. Mrs. Beardsley then rang a bell which soon brought her son, H. C. Beardsley, to the scene. Dr. Campbell was immediately summoned but he could do nothing for the suffering woman, and she died in great agony. Her legs and body were burned almost to a crisp. It is the opinion of Mr. H. C. Beardsley that his sister committed suicide while suffering from a fit of temporary insanity. Indications seem to confirm this opinion, as she made no out cry while burning and had placed her valuable papers where they could be readily found. Miss Beardsley was 52 years of age. Funeral services conducted by Rev. J. S. Whitman, were held Thursday at 11 a.m. The remains were buried in the family plot in the village cemetery. Jan. 7, 1887 - Estate Mr. H. C. Beardsley and H. L. VanGorder have been appointed administrators of the estate of Lucy Beardsley, late of Canfield township deceased.”.

  1544. Ibid., Died in Ellsworth, Sept. 7th, Mrs. Ora Fitch, wife of Colbert Fitch, aged 28 years. We shall miss her - such friends so rarely we find; in joy or in sorrow, ever true, ever kind; in the church we shall miss her, so faithful and true. In this as in all things, her duty to do. You will miss her - her husband, the companion of years. The sharer alike of life's joys and life's tears; and yea, her aged parents, how sadly ye'll miss the love and care of a daughter like this. As friend and as daughter, as mother and wife, how nobly she filled her station in life. She has gone, and no other that station can fill; Tis the hand of the Father! We must bow to His will.

  1547. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Article #54, 11 Feb 1898. Editor Dispatch: - We wish in this issue to speak of two brothers and their immediate descendants who have since 1816 maintained a prominent position among the people of Canfield. We have had occasion more than once to refer to the fact that Connecticut families 100 or more years ago were almost uniformly large. We find that Capt. Philo Beardsley, an officer in the revolutionary war, and a citizen of Litchfield county, Conn., was no exception to this rule. Four of his sons we know of, and all of whom came to this vicinity at an early day, after spending long and useful lives have been gathered to their fathers. While living they were universally respected; when dead their memory is cherished. The oldest of these brothers was Josiah, who came first and settled upon a fine farm near east of the center of Boardman sometime prior to 1816, the date at which Philo and Curtis settled in Canfield. At a later date Almus settled upon the farm now owned by his son Henry, west of the center of Ellsworth. Here we can only and that briefly refer to Philo and Curtis. Both of these took the precaution to bring with them help-mates in the arduous duties and trials of pioneer life. Philo Beardsley was born Aug. 14, 1794, in Connecticut, and died in his 76th year, Feb. 21, 1870. His first wife and the mother of all his children was Lois Gunn, who was born in 1797 and died in her 51st year in 1848. He some years afterwards married a widow in Berlin, a Mrs. Smith. Curtis Beardsley was born in New Preston, Conn., March 1, 1797. At the age of 19 he married Sophia Hanford, who was a year younger and shortly after these young brothers with their youthful wives “took a journey to a far country.” All the effects of the two couples were placed in a wagon drawn by a yoke of oxen and a span of horses. We are informed the journey was accomplished in some 26 days. This was a great improvement over the time necessary to make the same distance some 10 or 15 years earlier - then the time required was from some 40 to 45 day, showing clearly that the forests were being cleared away and the roads made more passable. On May 4, 1816, the party arrived at the home of Josiah Beardsley in Boardman. This was a Saturday, and they remained there until Monday, and on that day they arrived at their future home on what is now known as Turner Street in the northwest part of the township. Here we would suppose the two little families separated, each settling on different tracts of land and yet near together. If my memory is not altogether at fault, Philo settled and lived for a number of years on the west side of the road and a short distance south of where he finally took up his residence. Be this as it may, in the course of time he opened up a farm now owned by Noah Lynn, and built the large farm house in which he lives. As a farmer he prospered, but it was all at the expense of unremitting toil and the denial of every expense not necessary to the real comforts of life. In 1821, Mr. Beardsley and his wife Lois united with the Congregational Church and to the end of life continued to be faithful members. For many years he and deacon P. T. Tanner were colleagues in the church, and to their oversight the welfare of the society very largely depended. A great portion of time the church was without the services of a pastor, but the society would meet regularly every Sabbath for worship. On such occasions deacon Beardsley would read a sermon. I heard him repeatedly when young. I have also since then heard many sermons read by ministers and I think I can safely say that at least some of them were not so creditably read. In other respects Mr. Beardsley took an intelligent interest in the living questions discussed in his day. Among these were the temperance and anti-slavery movements, and the earnest support he rendered the country in its last great struggle for existence. Philo and Lois Beardsley were the parents of 11 children. The number forbids lengthy comments. Chauncey C. was born Jan. 2, 1817, and died about seven years ago. He married Betsy, a daughter of Azariah Wetmore. He became the owner of a large farm in Lordstown. The second child of Philo - Mary C., died at the age of 3 1/2 years. The third, Daniel P., born in 1820. He first married Martha Chidester; becoming a widower he married Mary E. Bingham of Ellsworth; moving to Wayne, Ashtabula county, he became a successful farmer. “Dan” and myself were school-mates of near the same age. I could easily beat Dan with an axe, but when it came to driving a long team of oxen I was not in it. When quite young he acquired a great reputation as a skillful driver of two, three or four yoke of oxen. His father was a great lover of good teams, and always at that time had several on hand. Daniel died in June, 1896, and his body was brought here for burial. The fourth birth was Philo B., who died at the age of 19. The fifth was Mary C., born June 2, 1836 [sic 1826]. She is a single lady residing in the village, and by her kindness I have obtained these names and dates. Almus comes next. Everybody in Canfield knows “Al” and his good wife Mary, a daughter of an old pioneer, Hiram Dean. Almus was born Jan. 5, 1829. His next mile stone will be numbered 70. We can only stop to say to such as do not know Mr. Beardsley that he is among the leading farmers in the county. His specialty is dairying with some admixture of Shetland ponies. His residence, barns and out-buildings form a villa as slightly as can be found in the township. The next is Frederick W., born Nov. 28, 1831. His first wife was Jacquiline, a daughter of Peter Gee, then of Berlin, O. His second, Laura, a daughter of James Jones of Canfield. We knew each of these ladies, and can speak kindly of both of them. Frederick commenced life working on a farm in summer and teaching during the winter. He served the county six years as clerk of its courts; was commissioned as an attorney. In spite of his politics, was elected a township magistrate, was clerk for years of our school board, and finally became the confidential agent of Mrs. Eliza Jennings, the duties of which led him to take up his residence in Illinois, where he still resides. Lois, the eighth in time, became the wife of S. A. McNeilly of Ellsworth. After a long illness, she died recently. Of Kezele, the next child, we know but little. We are informed she lives with and is cared for by a near relative. Keturah, next to the youngest of the family, was born in 1839, married Ezra B. Bingham and has a pleasant home south of Ellsworth center. The last is Philo A., named after the father, was born May 20, 1841. When near 20 years of age he enlisted as a private soldier in Col. Hazen's celebrated regiment, the 41st. O. V. I., that did so much of hard and effective service in the late war. From the ranks he rose to be a commissioned officer, survived the causalities of war, came home and soon after married a New York state lady, and after some changing around finally settled where he now resides, in West Andover, Ashtabula county. Of the family the elder Philo, we find six living at this time. We left Curtis, a younger brother of Philo, with his wife, Sophia, back in 1816 as they were about for the first time to step upon the farm which was to be to them a life work in clearing, building, cultivating the soil and afterwards harvesting its products. Both were quite young and we may suppose that each possessed the inspiration and hopefulness of youth. With Sophia the transition from a well-established home in the east to a rude cabin in a wilderness was indeed great, but we hear of no homesickness or repining. Her parentage was good, being a descendant of Rev. Thomas Hanford, the first minister of Norwalk, Conn., and continued as such for 41 years. About the first work Mr. Beardsley did was the clearing of 10 acres of land and sowing it in wheat. The seed cost him $2 per bushel. When this crop was ready for market it was worth 37 cents a bushel. After many years of constant toil, we find the family housed in a large two-story dwelling with all the necessary out-buildings, surrounded by fenced fields and the forest pushed far to the rear. The whole lives of Mr. Beardsley and wife seemed wrapped up in their children, and to the establishment and maintenance in Canfield of the Protestant Episcopal Church of which they were devoted members. It was at their instance more than anyone else that a neat church building was erected nearly opposite our dwelling on East street. St. Stephen's Parish for a time seemed to promise well. But deaths and removals gradually wore it out of existence, so that at this writing not a vestige of building or church remains. This by no means proves that the zeal, labor and expense of these people resulted in no permanent good. Curtis Beardsley was quiet, modest and unassuming in demeanor - a man of few words, but they fitly spoken. He might be slow to make a promise, but when made it was reliable. He was firm in his quiet way to “maintain the right as God gave him to see it.” “Aunt Sophia,” while busy as a bee with her hands could at the same time use her vocal organs when necessary. Curtis Beardsley was born March 1, 1797, and died Jan. 15, 1876, aged nearly 79 years. For a few years before his death he became crippled and otherwise infirm but almost to the last he kept on his feet, performing such labor as he could. His aged companion survived him many years until it seemed that the death messenger was loth to do his work. At length he came and on Jan. 15, 1894, she ceased to live. She was born in Norwalk, Conn., May 12, 1798. These dates will show that she died in her 96th year. After the death of her husband, with her daughters Eliza and Lucy, she made her home in the village. After the death of these daughters she returned to the old homestead. Mr. and Mrs. Beardsley were the parents of eight children. We will note them in order, but with most will be compelled to omit dates. The first was a son that died a few days after its birth. The second birth was Wm. Hanford, the only child now living, who is in his 79th year. His residence is now and has been for many years in Geauga county. For a wife he married Mary, a daughter of Henry Edsall. The third child was Mary L., who married A. L. VanGorder of Warren. They raised a family of children. She died in 1859. The next birth was Anna S., born in 1824, died in 1844. The fifth child, Eliza M., never married and died in 1879 at the age of 52 deceased. Next comes Sarah Ann, who married P. A. Spicer of Berlin. A short married live and the birth of one child completed her history. Lucy M., the seventh child, lived a useful life. For more than 30 years she was a faithful, conscientious and successful teacher. I knew enough of Eliza and Lucy to be able to say in all candor that they were the “excellent ones of earth.” The youngest child of Curtis and Sophia Beardsley was Henry C., born March 12, 1838. He married Mary J., a daughter of C.C. Hine. Henry in the prime of life and at the time he was most needed for the support of his family and an aged and dependent mother, was called upon to give up an honorable and useful life. The grim monster does not select his victims as we would if we had his work to do. Henry died in April 15, 1887. His widow is now a resident of the village. Henry and Mary were the parents of Oda and Edward C. The former married George Woolf, now of Cleveland. She was a well educated and accomplished lady, and it was sad, while yet in the bloom of life, to called away. Edward C. married a daughter of Clark Ewing. He occupies the old farm and in connection with a young son are the only representatives left in Canfield of Curtis and Sophia Beardsley. Edward starts off well, and why should he not if “blood tells.” In his veins may be found the blood of the Beardsleys, Hanfords, Hines, Schofields, and Wadsworths. J.

  1570. Obituary WILSON, Wilbur Beardsley, 1891-1928 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 27 July 1928. “Wilbur B. Wilson, 37, of Canfield, World War veteran, died Wednesday at Mesa, Arizona, where in the hope of restoring his broken health he and his father went last fall. He was ailing when he returned from service overseas but his condition improved for a time. His trouble, however, was deep seated and he finally had to relinquish tasks requiring much exertion. Deceased was born in Canfield March 2, 1891, a son of Mr. and Mrs. Willis C. Wilson. He attended the local schools and was a student in Ohio State University, fitting himself for a chemist when called to the service of his country in the 123rd Regiment, with which he served until the close of the world war. He was married nearly eight years ago to Miss Josephine Fitch of Canfield who survives with a little daughter, Jean. He also leaves his parents, a brother, Earl Wilson of Canfield, and a sister, Mrs. Clarence Webber, Youngstown. Early in life he united with the Presbyterian church and was affiliated with Argus Lodge, No. 545, F&AM, as well as Canfield American Legion. He was a man who made friends and retained them and his untimely death is deeply mourned. The remains will arrive in Canfield Sunday morning and funeral services will be held in the Presbyterian church Sunday afternoon at 2:30, Rev. J. C. Wright and the Masonic order being in charge. Burial in the village cemetery.” Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 3 Aug 1928 “The remains of Wilbur B. Wilson, accompanied by his father, W. C. Wilson, arrived in Canfield early Sunday morning from Mesa, Arizona, where he passed away July 25, and were taken to the Williams funeral home. In the afternoon they were removed to the Presbyterian church where funeral services were held at 2:30, a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends being in attendance. The last rites were in charge of Rev. J. Carroll Wright and Argus Masonic lodge which was seated in a body, as was Canfield American Legion Post, of which the deceased was a member. The floral offerings were many and beautiful, silent tributes of esteem in which the deceased was held. Burial with reading of the Masonic service was in the village cemetery.” “Ellsworth - Friends here were sorry to hear of the death of Wilbur Wilson at Mesa, Arizona. Quite a number from here attended the funeral in Canfield Sunday afternoon.”.

  1576. Newspaper - 1877-1968 - Mahoning Dispatch, Canfield, OH weekly [Fri] publication, Fri, 12 Dec 1930. Fire last Friday night in a garage adjoining the large brick residence on the Dean Hill Farm, owned by H.J. Beardsley, two miles northwest of the village, had to be fought hard by the Canfield volunteer fire department and neighbors before it was extinguished, but not until after the structure was considerably damage. Men had been at work during the day repairing a tractor in the garage and there was no evidence of fire when they left, hence, its origin is undetermined.

  1578. Ibid., Fri, 15 Aug 1941. Fire Sweeps Dairy Plant A spectacular fire which could be seen for over 20 miles destroyed the barn, horse barn, smoke house, machine shop, garage and milk bottling plant with all contents at the Dean Hill Dairy farm two miles northwest of the village about 9 o'clock Monday evening. The fire was discovered by a passerby, who turned in the alarm, but the blaze spread so rapidly that the Canfield, Boardman and Austintown fire departments, with six pieces of equipment, could save only the brick house, to which the milk bottling plant was attached. Nearly all the house furnishing were removed, as it seemed unlikely the structure could be saved. The barn, one of the largest in this section, contained 100 tons of hay, 1,000 bushels of oats and 557 bushels of wheat. Three prize bulls and nineteen head of young cattle were also burned, as was all farm equipment, including a tractor, threshing machine, and the extensive equipment of the pasteurizing and bottling plant, with the exception of hay-making machinery, which was stored in a barn across the road. Firemen were handicapped by a 30 mile-an-hour gale, blowing flames from the barn directly toward the house, and 100 feet in the air. The farm, owned by H.J. Beardsley, is operated by his son, Dean, who with his wife was vacationing in Canada at the time. Seventy -two head of dairy cattle had been turned out to pasture after the evening milking. Cause of the fire is undetermined. Hundreds of motorists, attracted by the blaze, jammed all roads in the locality and made it difficult for firemen to reach the scene and to haul water from Canfield hydrants. State highway patrol and deputy sheriffs took charge to clear the roads. Mr. Beardsley estimates replacement of the buildings and equipment would cost over $40,000, which was partly covered by insurance. COMMENT: On the aforementioned 15 Aug 1941 fire - the story as Dean and Geneve Beardsley told it to me in 1987 By Jennifer Neff - I now reside in the brick home that escaped the blaze The Beardsley's had one of the largest dairy farms in the county. Dean and Geneve were out of town the day the barn burned. (According to a “Mahoning Dispatch” article the frame of it had been raised in 1890 by Almus Beardsley who was Dean's great grandfather.) Dean's brother was watching the house and farm while they were away. He left to run a few errands and when he returned the fire was well underway. Dean said that some 20 head of cattle were lost in the fire and Geneve added that most were young calves. Dean explained, “The livestock was located towards the rear of the barn, and the fire was in the front of the barn. Sadly, there was no way to rescue them.” (Jim Allen says that he was just a young boy when he and his father witnessed the fire. Jim remembers someone shooting the cattle - to put them out of their misery; however, who that was is unclear. He remembers that someone handed a rifle to Dean, but Dean didn't have the heart to shoot and asked if someone else would please do it. However since Dean wasn't even there, Jim's story may not be remembered correctly.) The fire was so hot it broke the windshield on a fire truck which was parked in the drive near the front of the house. The back windows of the house were shattered by the heat. The rafters started to catch fire. Dean's brother pumped water from the cistern, which was under the front porch, to cool the slate roof; however, after the water had been circulated over the roof a few times it became so hot it began to boil and could no longer be pumped. Dean said, “We lost our barn that day and if it hadn't been for my brother, we may have lost the house too. One rafter in the house had to be replaced and the attic was a smoky mess. The garage on the back of the house was lost. I rebuilt the garage exactly where the original stood, and then built the milk house in the rear so I could continue the dairy business. Pine trees were planted where the barn stood.”.

  1589. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, 4 June 1897. Excerpts of Fred Wadsworth I have been greatly aided in my historical sketches to the writings and records of Mr. Frederick Wadsworth. He has left us for our use and information the most that we know of the pioneer fathers, but unfortunately nothing that we can lay our hands on respecting himself. The old proverb is applicable in his case: “The shoemaker's child and the blacksmith's horse are never shod.” Some of our old people may know who he married, I do not. I remember when a great deal younger than now and long before railroad days, in going to Cleveland and other places to the west, of passing his residence on the diagonal road leading from Palmyra to Ravenna. His home was a large brick dwelling located on commanding ground and surrounded by a farm covering hundreds of acres. This farm and residence was probably in Edinburgh township, and was a few miles southeast of Ravenna. This place was his home for many years. He afterwards removed to Akron, where his two daughters resided, one of whom was married to Mr. Elkins, long the editor of the Summit County Beacon, then a weekly paper having but few superiors in the state in point of ability and influence. The other daughter had for her husband Joseph Bebee, also a man of prominence in Akron. In the earlier days of Mr. Wadsworth's life intoxicants were in common use by nearly all. In fact, deemed by many as a necessity. Whisky was cheap and found in nearly every dwelling, even when destitute of about everything else. Corn and rye were raised in great abundance and no market for it. It could easily be made into whiskey and then drank. The result of the free use of this intoxicant soon became manifest in the utter ruin and destruction of many of the brightest and best men of that day. Frederick Wadsworth was where he could see for himself the baneful influence of this beverage and perhaps realized his own personal danger. He became in consequence, a strenuous advocate for abstinence from everything that would intoxicate. An old gentleman recently told me that he has heard Mr. Wadsworth say the gift of $500 would not tempt him to the taking of just one drink. During the few years of Elisha Whittlesey's retirement from public life, Mr. Wadsworth was one of his frequent guests, and the two were on the closest terms of intimacy. When in Canfield I would often see him, and although well advanced in life, he stood erect, was quick in his movements, very neatly dressed and shaven, stoutly built, slightly corpulent, and in manners a polite and courteous gentleman of the old school. He spent his last days in retirement on a ranch in California. I remember having read some of his letters written towards the close of life, from his far away home descriptive of his home-life and his rambles in the mountains of California.

Swank - At her late residence in Canfield, March 7th, 1879, Mrs. Sarah, wife of Mr. Amos Swank, in the 60th year of her age. The deceased was born in Luzerne county, Pa. Feb. 20th, 1820, and was united in marriage to Mr. Amos Swank, in 1840. Some years after their marriage they came to Canfield, where they continued to reside until her death. She became the mother of nine children, six of whom survive her, and with the exception of Emeline, wife of Mr. Cornelias Simon, were present at the funeral. She also leaves eight grand-children, and a large circle of relatives and friends. She was an affectionate wife, a kind mother, a sympathizing friend and an obliging neighbor, respected and loved by all who knew her. In 1868, she made a profession of her faith in Christ, and was received into the communion of the Presbyterian Church of Canfield, of which Church she has continued a worthy member, endeavoring to adorn her profession. Of her we may truly say, she loved the Church and the people of God. She found delight in the ordinances of the Lord's house, and was ever ready to do what she could for her own good and the good of others. Her last sickness was brief, and her death came as a sudden shock even to her own family, but we mourn in hope. Surely, our loss is her infinite gain. She has left the Church and family on earth to join the church and family above. She awaits the husband and children on the other shore. May they meet her. I.

  1636. Ibid., Fri, 26 Feb 1897. Anna Maria, youngest daughter of Eleazor Gilson, was born in Connecticut April 17th, 1796, and on the 20th day of April, 1814, was married to Ansil Beeman. They were the parents of seven children, of whom only one remains with us until this day-one of the younger daughters, who married our esteemed citizen, John Misner. I knew Mrs. Beeman well-a woman of rather short stature, compactly framed, and capable of great endurance. She with her husband were a part of the little band of eight members when in 1820 the M. E. Church was first organized in Canfield, and up to the time of her death was a faithful and consistent Christian woman. I often noticed when unfavorable weather deterred younger and nearer members from attending public worship Mother Beeman was in her place. Her husband died Dec. 20th, 1854, aged 67. Mrs. Beeman survived her husband a number of years, making her home with her daughter, Mrs. Misner. I have not the date of her death, but it occurred, I am told, in 1878, aged 84. Mr. Beeman was a native of Connecticut and came to Canfield in 1806 at the age of 19, a poor but industrious young man of great strength and power of endurance. He engaged to work three years for Gen. Wadsworth for which he was to receive 100 acres of wild land in Johnston, Trumbull county, and $24 per year to be expended on clothing. He earned his land and continued his hard labor in Canfield up to 1814, when he married and went to reside on his land in Johnston. He remained there but a few years when he returned to Canfield where he purchased and improved the land where John Misner, his son-in-law, now resides. His children have all, excepting Mrs. Misner, left Canfield. Harriet married Thomas Young, deceased, and with her children resides in Ellsworth. Mr. and Mrs. Misner's children have grown to manhood and womanhood and are well educated and promise to do honor to the revolutionary blood that flows in their veins.

  1711. History - 1882 H.Z. Williams History of Trumbull and Mahoning Co. OH, Vol II p109. James Williams, the oldest child of John and Mary Williams, was born in Bedford county, Pennsylvania, November 8, 1809. He was married November 17, 1836, to Miss Almyra Cook. She was born in Columbiana county, August 28, 1818. Their children are as follows: Henry A., married Irene Greathouse, and lives in Oregon; Mary E., the wife of George Bennett, resides in Illinois; Delos E., married Esther Jane Bennett, and resides in Ellsworth; Homer married Mary Brooke, and resides in Canfield; Alice J., married Samuel S. Gault - her home is in Ellsworth; Lewis died at the age of two years. Mr. Williams worked at the trade of a carpenter and joiner for about forty years of his life, but is now retired from active business, having secured a competency sufficient to support himself and wife during the remainder of their days, besides amply providing for all their children. Although Mr. Williams never sought office, his fellow-citizens, have shown their confidence in his integrity by electing him to the office of justice of the peace three times. No better tribute of respect to this worthy couple can be paid than the universally prevalent sentiment of their associates and friends, that their lives have been distinguished by acts of kindness and benevolence toward many a one in need of friends and help.

  1726. Canfield Twp. Cemetery & Death Records, Mahoning Co. OH, 1983 , p. ix. Jennifer Neff, 2005 In 1804 with the arrival of Pennsylvania Germans from Berks and Northampton Counties, PA, who settled n the northeast quarter of the township [Canfield], as well as in Austintown and Ellsworth townships, a first priority was the establishment of a German union Lutheran and Reformed Church. Zion Church, the first church building in the township, was built in 1810 on land one mile north of the village. In the churchyard, now known as Old North Cemetery, the earliest extant stone is for 1811, but the death list shows burial among German families for 1807, including a child of Conrad Neff in 1809, and it is likely that these were at Zion Reformed. The pastoral record of the Lutheran minister Henry Hewitt for 1816-1847 and the journals of David Simon, written in the 1850's, both record deaths at Zion for which there are no stones.

  1787. Obituary BEST, Isaac Warren Daily Tribune, 10 Sep 1913 p. 1:4-5. DROPPED DEAD ON WAY TO FAIR Isaac Best, a Well Known Farmer of Lordstown Succumbs to Heart Trouble Early Wednesday Morning. Isaac Best, a well known farmer residing in Lordstown, dropped dead in his buggy while driving to the Canfield fair early Wednesday morning. Heart disease is given as the cause of his death. With Mr. Best at the time was his grandson, Noble Best. The two had arisen early and after Mr. Best had done his chores they started for the fair. A short distance south of Austintown nearly in front of the residence of William May, the old man's head fell forward on his chest and his body relaxed. The grandson summoned help but Mr. Best was dead when it arrived. Mr. Best was a man about 68 years old and had resided in Lordstown for the past forty years. He had been troubled with heart trouble for sometime and his physician had often warned him against over exertion. Wednesday morning he arose before daybreak and had all of his chores done early. Immediately after breakfast he with the grandson started for the fair. He was apparently in the best of health and spirits. Surviving are his wife and one son, Andrew Best of Lordstown.

  1847. Obituary BIDWELL, Lucy M. nee BOUGHTON, 1811-1886 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 5 Mar 1886. “Mrs. Lucy M. Bidwell died at the residence of the late Judge Newton on Monday. Deceased had been in ill health for a number of years. She was in her 75th year. Funeral services, conducted by Rev. J. S. Whitman, were held in the Congregational Church on Thursday at 1 p.m., after which the remains were laid to rest in the village cemetery.” Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 16 Apr 1886 “Mrs. Lucy M. Bidwell, who passed away from earth Monday, March 1, 1886, was a daughter of Eli Taylor Boughton, one of Canfield's earlier settlers, and was born here Sept. 2, 1811. At an early age she was the subject of religious impressions, and united with the Congregational church of this place Nov. 4, 1831. On Aug. 31, 1836, she married Mr. Caleb Bidwell of Kinsman, O. They settled in Fremont, O., and remained there until Providence saw best to deprive her of her strongest earthly ties - a husband and two infant children. Returning to the old homestead she devoted many years of her life to the comfort of her parents' declining days, for whom she faithfully and cheerfully labored. Here her life and home was the magnet of a multitude of friends and acquaintances, who unite in bearing witness in her uniform kindness and excellent character. Her deeds of kindness were often accompanied by substantial tokens of friendship; these with her words of love are now cherished by all as mementoes of the truest friendship. Diligent and modest in an unostentatious manner, she exercised these gifts for the good of others, giving cheer, comfort, and help to many hearts. The friendless orphans called forth her warmest sympathy. By her own efforts, through The Home for the Friendless, in New York City, many an orphan's feet has been warmed by the unceasing work of her frail hands, and many other articles of comfort she freely gave to warm those little shivering hearts, thus securing the universal applaud that truly “she hath done what she could.” Recently, while in feeble health to her pastor's question, “Would you like to live? She replied; “Yes, if the Lord has anything for one to do.” And in further conversation with him regarding an anticipated change of residence, she remarked; “It may be He will take me to Himself.” March 1, 1886, after a useful life of 74 years and 6 months, she entered, as we believe, those heavenly mansions prepared for those who love and trust the Savior of all. Canfield, O. April 9, 1886 W.-R.”.

  1849. Scraps of History by Dr. Jackson Truesdale, Fri, 26 Nov 1897 - Article No. 44. Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 26 Nov 1897 - Article No. 44 Re: Eli T. Boughton “Editor Dispatch: - Since 1808, the date of Mr. Eli Taylor Boughton's settlement in Canfield, he and his descendants have occupied a prominent position in the business, social and religious life of the place. The family in some places have chosen to spell their surname Bouton, but whether spelled one way or the other there is good reason to believe they all originated so far as this country is concerned from John Bouton, whose signature spelled as we have it may be found to this day upon record as far back and perhaps farther than 1671. The name as well as history show that the family is of French extraction. Persons familiar with English history will be able to recall the benefit England derived during the merciless persecution of the French Hugenots (sic). Great numbers of them took refuge in England, and by their enterprise, industry and good habits were a very desirable acquisition to that country. Of the Hugenots, John Bouton, or his parents, were of the number. John himself came from England to Boston and settled in Norwalk, Conn., in 1635. The records have been diligently searched and no other by the name of Bouton or Boughton save this John is discovered as an emigrant, so there can be but little or no doubt that all of the name in the United States of America are the descendants of John of Norwalk. Chas. E. Boughton of Canfield, one of his posterity, but of what generation we have not studied out, has placed in my hands a geneology of the family prepared by James Boughton of Brooklyn, N.Y., who was engaged some six years in its preparation. It was a huge undertaking. The book is a large one containing some 684 pages, and enumerates and locates by name and residence at the date of its publication (1890) 5,726 descendants of John Bouton. Complete as this work would seem, a large number of the descendants neglected to furnish the necessary information, and sometimes groups are referred to enmasse when no further information was to be had. We have dwelt upon this matter to show how rapidly population may increase under favorable circumstances. It may not be an unmitigated evil that wars, pestilences, and famines are suffered to prevail at periods, making it possible for such an escape to gain a livelihood. The subject of our present sketch, Eli T. Boughton, was born in Brookfield, Conn., May 29, 1786. At a proper age he was indentured to a master tailor and received from him unkind treatment. When released from this master we find him at Danbury, where he married, as already said, Julia Mygatt. In the fall of 1808 he and his wife came to Canfield. His brother-in-law, Lewis Hoyt, came the same year, and it is probable they came together. Mr. Boughton brought with him a small assortment of cloths and trimmings, and when ready for business commenced with these and 50 cents in money. We imagine that his business proved lucrative, drawing as he did patronage from a circuit of 15 miles from Canfield and from the fact that he became the owner of a considerable amount of real estate and erected thereon a large frame house in 1809. His first purchase of land we have no doubt was the village lot No. 1, on which he built his dwelling. This lot is on the northwest corner of the street crossings at the center. The corner is known to this day as the Boughton corner. In addition, between himself and wife, at one time they owned the ground where the N.E.O.N. College stands and reaching to and including the depot grounds. Also the present farm of his son Charles E. and a scope of land adjoining. He no doubt soon erected a shop and store room on the site now owned by J.C. Kirk and occupied by M.V.B. King. While carrying on his trade he gradually worked his way to general merchandising, in which business he continued for many years. It has been a question of interest to me for years to learn who erected and first occupied the old Clewell dwelling now owned by Mr. Isaiah Reed. In a recent conversation with Charles E. Boughton the mystery was solved. This building is the one first erected by Mr. Boughton on the corner and moved by Joseph Bostwick to its present position, but when we are unable to state. The building has undergone a number of alterations and additions. To the members of the Western Star Lodge, No. 21, of the Masonic order, the building would naturally be one of interest. The lodge, although not at first instituted within its walls, had its home for many years, perhaps most of its life, in Canfield, in the upper story of this building. In the absence of information to the contrary we suppose Mr. Boughton afterwards built all, or at least the front portion of the present drug store. The dwelling built by Mr. Boughton stood until 1882, when it was torn down to make room for the residence, on the same ground, of J.C. Kirk. Mr. Boughton lived to Feb. 15, 1861, when he died, aged nearly 75. His first wife died in 1813, leaving three young children - George, Julia and Lucy M. In 1814 he married Jerusha, the widow of Ensign Church. She brought with her into the family Mary S., who in time became the wife of Hon. Eben Newton, and Lois, who died in girlhood. Eli T. and Jerusha had born to them Horace, Charlotte, Charles, Ensign and Jerusha, making in all a family of nine children. Jerusha, the wife, died Jan. 25, 1869, about 85. I retain her in my mind as a refined, neat and gentle lady of the old school. For a few years I was a close neighbor of Mr. Boughton, who was always kind and obliging to myself and family. I also notice from the records in my possession that he assumed his share in public and chartable enterprises; was active and liberal in the building of the Congregational church. In personal appearance he was of full medium height, but very lean or spare in flesh. In later years spectacles and a cane were constant companions of Mr. Boughton. George, the eldest son of Eli, was born in Danbury, Conn., all the other children in Canfield. When young he went to Burton in Geauga county and clerked for a time in a store, and in course of time became a merchant and banker there. He was successful in business and accumulated considerable wealth. His wife was a daughter of Seabury Ford, governor of Ohio for the term 1840-1850. The eldest daughter, Julia, married a Mr. Peffers, a farmer of Burton, and died Aug. 13, 1834. Attorney E. J. Estep of Cleveland married a daughter from this union. Lucy M., daughter of Eli, married Caleb Hotchkiss Bidwell, a graduate of the Western Reserve College, who studied law in the office of Whittlesey and Newton. He died about 1840 when yet a young man. Lucy returned to the home of her parents and remained a widow to the end of her life. Soon after the death of her step-mother the old home was broken up and for some years she made her residence first with her half-brother, Charles E. Boughton, and then with her step-sister, Mrs. E. Newton, where she died at an advanced age March 1, 1886. I hear some criticism about my finding so many good people that have lived in Canfield but before the list is closed let me add one more to it. If Aunt Lucy was not a good woman where shall we go to find one? Charlotte, the oldest child by the second marriage of Mr. Boughton and Mrs. Jerusha Church, married Ralph P. Buckland, who was also a law student in the celebrated Canfield law school. By the way, we find this law school was a good institution in other ways than furnishing legal instruction. It was the means of providing quite a number of good husbands to an equal number of Canfield's good girls. Schools are not patronized by promising boys. If you can see the point girls, encourage the Normal. Mr. Buckland, with his wife, settled in Fremont, O. He became successful as a lawyer, a political leader, and a Major General in the late war, a state Senator for four years, and a representative after the war for an equal number of years, in the lower House of Congress, besides filling a number of other responsible civil trusts. He died but a few years since. Mrs. Buckland, one of two surviving members of Eli T. Boughton's children, has her home at Fremont at an advanced age. Charles E., the only son of the original family, has always resided in Canfield. He has never been sent to the legislature or to Congress, but what is better has lived an honorable, peaceful and useful life - a farmer by occupation but recently retired and is now a resident of the village. Jerusha A., the youngest child of Eli T., was born May 16, 1823; married Mr. Thomas Stilwell and located at Fremont, O., and died in May, 1889. By oversight we have failed to observe in proper order mention of Horace, eldest son of Eli and Jerusha. He was born in 1815 and died in 1843 in Grand Gulf, Miss., while engaged in a trading expedition, aged about 28, unmarried. What little we may say of the second generation of Eli T. Boughton must be confined to the two sons of Charles E. and wife, namely Horace and George Nicholas. The first named, when a young man of 18, volunteered in 1862 and went to the front where he was killed within two months after his enlistment at the battle of Perrysville, Ky., Oct. 8, '62. We find in the Boughton geneology referred to at the beginning of this sketch a note from which we quote in part: "Horace Boughton was a young man of great promise. His body was brought home for burial and he was the first soldier's funeral in Canfield. The artillery, cavalry and infantry services were represented, muffled drums and soldiers with reversed arms made an impressing array, while a large attendance of citizens and friends evinced the great respect that was felt for him." George, the second son of Charles, commenced active life as a clerk in the store of Truesdale and Boughton; spent some years after in the oil business in Cleveland, and a number of years ago founded what has since swelled to the Canfield Manufacturing Co., of which he is part owner and secretary and treasurer for the company. When we look around for the third generation of Canfield Boughtons we find an empty void. This is a matter to be regretted that so good a name should be threatened with extinction in Canfield. In due time we hope our fears in this direction will be put to rest. We are indebted to Charles E. and Geo. N. Boughton for aid in the preparation of this sketch. J. Truesdale. (To be continued)”.

E, 2nd Ohio Volunteer Cavalry, largely recruited in Canfield and neighboring townships. He was taken prisoner and held for months, suffering all the privations of those deplorable times. After his honorable discharge from the army he returned to the old farm, tilling same as long as he was able. Of jovial disposition, keen of wit, and generous, John Martin not only made friends but retained them. At his own home, only a short distance from where he died, there was always a warm welcome for all callers. He was a member of the Canfield Presbyterian church and the G.A. R. On October 2, 1872, he was married to Miss Salome Schaal, who survives with three daughters, Mrs. J. A. Eberhart of Youngstown, Mrs. Monroe Hull of Canfield and Mrs. Chauncey Jerome of Girard.

  2043. Ibid., Daniel Blott Ends Long Life Daniel Blott, the oldest man in Canfield township, committed suicide Monday morning at the home of his son, Nathan Blott, one mile north of the village. The old gentleman used a razor to take his life, cutting a deep gash in his left wrist, severing the radial and ulner arties. The causes that led up to the suicide are said to have been disagreements with his daughter-in-law, the second wife of his son. Mr. Blott worried much over conditions and had insisted on going to the county infirmary to spend his remaining years if arrangements could be made for him to stay there and pay for his keeping. Relatives, however, objected to this and plans had been made for him to go Monday morning to the home of his grandson, H. C. Clay, who resides a mile further north on the Canfield-Austintown road. Before Mr. Clay arrived at the Blott home the old gentleman's troubles had so preyed upon him that he determined to end his life. Two gashes on his neck showed that he had first contemplated cutting his throat. Mrs. Nathan Blott, the daughter-in-law, in telling her story of the suicide, said that she had noticed the blood flowing from the wound in the wrist of the old gentleman, but thought that he had accidentally slightly cut himself and after taking the razor from him, told her daughter to get a wash basin and set it near the old man's chair, so that the blood would not fall on and spoil the carpet, and had given the matter no further attention, going out of the house into the yard where she was when her husband returned. Upon his return the son went into the house and to the room occupied by his father, and found him sitting upright in his chair, dead. In dying and evidently in heed of his daughter-in-law's warning against having the carpet spoiled, the dying man had arranged his left arm so that the blood from the wound in the wrist would fall into the basin, which the son found nearly filled with blood. Daniel Blott was born in Lehigh county, Pa., August 12, 1815, consequently he was in the ninety-fifth year of his age. He came to Canfield when 15 years old and settled on the farm where he died. His only possessions when he arrived here were a small bundle of clothing and a rifle, the latter he always kept and highly prized. By dint of hard work and thrift he accumulated enough of this world's goods to make him comfortable. He was married to Susan Foulk in 1841. She died about 24 years ago since which time he had made his home with his son. He was a member of Zion Reformed church, under the shadow of which he lived about eighty years, and in his younger days was one of the most active spirits in promoting the welfare of the church. It can be truthfully said of Daniel Blott that he was a thoroughly good man. He leaves two children, Nathan, and Mrs. Peter Konzem. Before taking his life Mr. Blott evidently burned his will as the charred envelope in which he kept the document was found in the stove in the room where he lived. Three hundred dollars in money were found in a table drawer. The body of Mr. Blott was taken to the residence of H. C. Clay Monday afternoon. Funeral services were held Thursday morning, meeting at the house at 10 o'clock and going from there to Zion Reformed church where Rev. J. C. Schaaf pronounced the sermon. Interment was made in the cemetery near the church. Cornersburg - Peter Konzem and wife attended the funeral of the latter's father, Daniel Blott, at the Zion church, north of Canfield, Thursday forenoon.

Home Happenings - Miss Eva Corll of Canfield, a student nurse in the Youngstown hospital, died last Saturday morning in that institution following a surgical operation which developed complications. In her passing has cast a shadow of gloom over the hospital staff and her home and community. Bright, vivacious and sweet, she endeared herself to a wide circle of friends. The wealth of floral tributes sent to the home bearing silent testimony to the high esteem in which she was held. Graduating from the Canfield high school in the class of 1919, she soon entered training for nurses. She had never lost a day on account of sickness until her last class and would have graduated in April. Her thoughtfulness and sympathetic ministrations for the afflicted under her care earned for her gratitude which words could not express. Miss Corll was born in Cornersburg, December 4, 1900, daughter of Mrs. Agnes Baker Corll Blott and the late Andrew Corll. Most of her life was spent in and near Canfield. She is survived by her step-father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Blott, brother, J. R. Corll, Youngstown, and two sisters, Mrs. C. A. Bishop of Austintown, and Mrs. C. E. Held of Struthers. Funeral services Tuesday morning at 11 o'clock, held from the Methodist Church, of which she was a member, in charge of Rev. C. L. Cope, was very largely attended. The pallbearers, four of them members of her old school class, were Paul Mathews, Richard Bingham, Hugh Boyer, Howard Lynn, Clarence Blott and Frank Housel. Misses' Emma Hake, Ruth Clay, Evelyn Shaffer, Wilda Andrews, and Isabel Neff were in charge of the flowers. Burial was made in the village cemetery. Coming and Going - Dr. C. R. Clark, Supt. Stewart and wife and thirty nurses of the Youngstown hospital attended the funeral of Miss Eva Corll held here Tuesday forenoon.

Entries in the records of the Obervogtei Wiedikon and Albisrieden, 1753-1756, do not indicate any notations of Bernhard, such as for permission to emigrate, but the Urteiebuch (judgment book) for Wiedikon and Albisrieden, 1747-1761, do. On 30 October 1753 the officials dealt with Bernhard Neff who was formerly a miller in Albisrieden and who had written to Albisrieden and reported that his wife and three children had died and requested the rights to the property his wife had in Albisrieden which was worth 470 Gulden. The schoolmaster Rudolf Matthys was given the task of informing Bernhard that he had no claim on that money. The matter came up again on 28 March 1754 when Schoolmaster Matthys presented an account of the household articles Bernhard had left behind. Again on 19 December 1756 the division of the property was effected. It is not clearly evident what the value of Bernhard's property left behind was, but his sister received 23 Gulden. The circa 470 Gulden of his wife was divided among her relatives. Bernhard was not as fortunate as Ulrich with his Swiss estate, therefore.”.

  2163. Obituary BOND, Elijah Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 8 Mar 1878 Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 15 Mar 1878. Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 8 Mar 1878 Mr. Elijah Bond, a highly esteemed pioneer citizen of Canfield, died at his residence in this place on Sunday morning last, after a brief illness, aged 82 years. The funeral of deceased, which took place on Tuesday from the family residence, was largely attended by old acquaintances, friends and citizens. He leaves a wife, daughter and a large circle of warm friends to mourn his loss. Next week we will publish fuller particulars in regard to deceased. (in articles) Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 15 Mar 1878 Death of an Old Citizen Died - At his residence in Canfield, on Sunday morning, March 3d, 1878, Elijah Bond, aged 82 years. Mr. Bond was born in Canterbury, Windham county, Connecticut, April 23d, 1796, consequently at the time of his death, lacked but a few weeks of being 82 years of age. At the age of 23, in the Spring of 1819, in company with his next younger brother, (Jonas Bond), he emigrated from his native State, arriving in Canfield May 23d, having walked the entire distance on foot. Soon after his arrival in this place he commenced working at his trade of wagon maker, and in addition for quite a number of years, made himself useful in repairing clocks and watches. In 1822, Mr. Bond returned to Connecticut, staying long enough to construct a carriage, such as was used at that early day, in which he in company with Jonas Bond's wife, returned to Ohio again in the spring of 1823, Jonas following with team and goods. For quite a number of years Mr. Bond made his home at the old Cook Fitch tavern and with Eli T. Boughton. In 1839, he married Miss Jane Fitch, and about the same time erected the residence he occupied up to the time of his death. His first wife having died in 1854, he was married in 1856, to Mrs. Orpha Truesdale. He had by his first wife two children, one of whom died when quite young; the other, Miss Hattie, lived to comfort and minister to the last wants of her aged parent. Mr. Bond was ever remarkably regular and methodical in his habits - free from every form of excess and of wonderful evenness of temper. These habits and traits of mind, in connection with the naturally robust constitution, insured almost uninterrupted good health up to the last year or two previous to his death; never having been compelled to go to bed for a single day up to a few weeks prior to his death. The deceased, though not demonstrative or obtrusive in his religious or political views, nevertheless had decided and intelligent opinions of his own upon these subjects. When called upon to act or vote, it was done in the interests of morality and humanity. His funeral was largely attended by many of his old acquaintances, desirous of manifesting their sympathy and respect for the memory of a good man, among whom was Judge Newton, who, from his long acquaintance, was enabled to speak in terms of the greatest respect over the remains of his old friend and neighbor. Rev. John McLean spoke from a text fitly describing the deceased; “Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.” J. T.

  2165. Newspaper - 1877-1968 - Mahoning Dispatch, Canfield, OH weekly [Fri] publication, Fri, 31 Jan 1930. CANFIELD PIONEER WRITES FLUENTLY MRS. ELLEN R. JONES, WIDOW OF P.T. JONES, IN HER NINETY-SECOND YEAR, TELLS ABOUT FIRST OF YEAR AUTO TRIP AND RECALLS INCIDENTS OF HER EARLY LIFE. At the beginning of a New Year I find, it a very pleasant pastime to check up many happy events of the years gone by, meeting old friends, calls, post cards, flowers, and all things that make life worth living. One of the most notable occasions was when Mrs. Allen Flickinger took my daughter and I to view the interior of a dwelling (her home) known as the Church property, East Main St., where I had been caller many years before, and have seen living five generations of that family. Coming to Canfield in 1857, a student in the old Mahoning Academy, I met Miss Mary Church, then living with her parents. We formed a friendship that lasted during her life. She became the wife of Col. James M. Nash, a Civil War officer and prominent citizen. The place is now owned and occupied by descendants of that union. That house, like many others, was planned for looks. There was one large parlor finely finished and furnished, windows darkened, doors closed, never to be opened, only on state occasions, funerals or weddings; a long, dim hall that led to the living room, a flight of stairs and chills enough to last all summer finished the front of the house. Convenience was never considered, a few trips to the front door made a Sabbath day's journey. Modern improvements have made a very fine home of it - nothing has been forgotten or left out to add to the comfort of a home. A sun parlor and side entrance have made a delightful living room of the old one. After inspecting the house our hostess took us in her car joyriding thru a part of the town I hadn't seen for some time. A wayside marker said Canfield. Had it said Halifax or Poppy I would not have questioned it. Northing looked familiar, old houses improved and many new ones built. We don't pretend to be “ A city set on a hill,” just a beautiful little village on an eminence, the highest point in this range between Lake Erie and the Ohio river, so surveyors have told us. Without that assurance we know we are high and dry and fear neither floods nor quarreling officials. Drilling finds an abundance of water of all kinds, from the softest to the very hard, and salt water if you ask for it, but nothing stronger. Our citizens are intelligent and progressive, as fine churches and the best of schools prove. Our home paper, The Mahoning Dispatch, is a model of its kind; editor, correspondents and all connected with its making deserve great credit for giving us a “clean sheet” every week. No great American writer who gets his inspiration in liquid form, then shies the empty bottle at the heads and character of our very best and most useful citizens can get a column to fill in this publication. After viewing a part of the town, we left for the country, was quite bewildered, as I did not know when we left the town and struck the country. The old dust and mud road has been buried under tons of slag and concrete that has made a grand transformation for the traveling public. Those who are out to view rural scenes can see them only in the dim distance, nearby is so very clean it looks lonesome and bald headed. We went to Ellsworth lake, finding there a small summer resort with beautiful scenery and charming cottages where the owners can rusticate during the summer. The greatest, though not the latest, improvement I saw is where the state road No. 17 crosses the Meander in Ellsworth township. For years it was spanned by a covered bridge, a terror of my early years. I always approached it with fear and trembling. The first step of a horse on a dilapidated plank would cause it to raise up with a threat, then drop back with a thud, as did every other plank in that old floor: the rattle and din was deafening, making one feel as though on the road to destruction that would end in wreck and ruin. We faced another danger where a steep hill ended in a deep ravine near the road. I was told that many years ago a drunken stage driver went over the brink and landed his coach in underbrush that kept it from upsetting, so that not much damage was done. I'll not vouch for the story; a ghostly memory still guarded the spot, and it looked very easy to follow the trail without being drunk. This is now past-history; dangerous hills have been graded, the ramshackle bridge has disappeared to make room for a fine concrete structure. The Meander flows beneath it as it goes babbling along, hoping after many trials and tribulations to be able to supply two cities with pure water. The sight of that highway sent me back more than 85 years. Some miles away, just as near the road as law would allow, was an old district school house, where I began attending school and continued the following ten years. It was on the best known route at that time between Cleveland and Pittsburgh, so planned that not a glimpse, on that busy thoroughfare, could be had of passersby from the school room. We had ten minutes in the forenoon and afternoon and an hour's recess at noon. Within that limited time we saw many interesting sights. Pittsburgh at that time was a manufacturing town, workmen had to be fed by the surrounding country. Many droves of cattle, flocks of sheep, some pigs- the latter always had a dislike to traveling enmasse - beef and mutton found their way to market on their own feet. One day a large drove of fat cattle, footsore and weary, came limping by. A driver said they were on their way to New York City. When asked how long it would take them to get there, he said he thought they could make it in a hundred days. They had to go slow and rest Sundays so the cattle would be in good condition when they arrived at their destination. Coaches going both ways between the two cities could be seen daily, Sunday excepted, carrying passengers and mail. The coaches had doors between wheels, a narrow isle in the middle, permanent seats on either side so travelers sat facing each other. Horses had a relay at regular intervals. There was a day and a night driver, but no relief for those who had to ravel at night. It was amusing to see them with closed eyes politely bowing to each other. Mail sacks were carried in a rack at the rear of the coach, Thieves and mail robbers hadn't arrived yet. One day there came a procession consisting of eight large coaches, each drawn by four horses, the driver on a high seat outside. They were filled with men whence they came or whiter they went we had no means of knowing. Newspapers and reporters were then almost unknown. The old thorofare was usually littered with vehicles of all kinds-oxcarts, lumber wagons, small two-wheeled rigs just big enough for a doctor, known as “pill carts.” In earlier days homemade cars-wheels of solid wood sawed from logs-were known as “Welsh go-devils.” These were used by a small settlement of Welsh that lived nearby. They were used by fine, enterprising men and were soon replaced by good wagons. Covered wagons, known as Pennsylvania schooners, were very common. They were freight-carriers and did an immense amount of business. A few years later we heard and saw a different covered wagon coming from the east-longer and having much smaller wheels that creaked at every revolution. It was at the noon hour that every scholar lined up by the side of the road to see them pass. Such grotesque cavalcade can hardly be imagined. The wagons were loaded to the top, only room for a driver to ride was left. There were about 20 men and women with a few half grown boys walking by the side of the wagons. All wore wooden shoes, women were dressed quite alike, home-made goods, near the same color-skirts easy walking length, capes around their shoulders and gay 'kerchiefs ties over their heads. They didn't see us though we were very near but passed serenely by babbling to one another. They were giving us a lesson in good manners. It was a merited rebuke, some of us were old enough to know better. About that time we were boastfully singing: Of all the mighty nations In the east or in the west. The glorious Yankee nation Is the greatest and the best; We have room for creation And our banner is unfurled, With a general invitation to The people of the world. They had accepted the invitation-not expecting to be stared at in such wild-eyed wonder. I must ring off memory and come back to the present. We are on a good road passing fine homes of real dirt farmers, not a poverty-stricken place in sight-such as our political farmers are telling us about. If they will help lift the tax burdens they are suffering form these poor toilers will pay their own bills and have a surplus left with which to buy a rat trap or corn plaster. We arrived home safely, thankful for a delightful ride, and many pleasant things to think over in the future. ELLEN R. JONES.

  2177. Ibid., In Canfield, at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. P. T. Jones, March 18th, 1878, Mr. Jonas Bond, in the 80th year of his age. The deceased was born in Canterbury, Connecticut, in 1798. In the month of April, 1819, when 21 years old, he left his native state for Ohio, arriving in Canfield May 19th. In 1821 he returned to Connecticut, and some months after was married to Miss Eliza Story (Nov. 28th 1822). In July of the following year. Mr. Bond with his young wife, accompanied by Elijah, and Elder brother, started again for Ohio, which was ever after the home of these worthy persons: the journey occupying twenty-three days in its accomplishment. The greater portion of the way was made on foot by the brothers. Mrs. Jonas Bond, with a few household goods and clothing following with a light wagon and team. Mr. Bond and wife lived in Canfield until 1824, when they removed to a farm purchased a few years before in Edinburgh, Portage county. In 1827, they went to Ravenna, where Mr. Bond for six years acted as Deputy Sheriff living in the jail and having charge of the public buildings, and transacting the greater part of the Sheriff's duties. In 1836 he returned to his farm in Edinburgh, from whence nothing could induce him to leave, although repeatedly urged by those who knew his sterling integrity and sound judgement, to offer himself as a candidate for county hours. He remained on his farm until 1865, enjoying the quietness of farm life and the companionship of an interesting and well regulated family. The loss of accustomed health and the growing infirmities of age compelled him to relinquish, to a great extent, the pursuits he took such delight in and prosecuted with such skill. In the year last named, he sold his farm again and returned to Canfield, where he purchased and fitted up a pleasant home in the village, where he spent the “evening of his declining years,” but still busy in the summer months in his garden, which was made so productive by his skill and industry as to be the admiration of all who saw it. Mr. Bond was the father of seven children, six of whom lived to maturity, - only three of whom are now living. One of them, Hon. Lester Bond is a prominent lawyer and citizen of Chicago. An interesting event to himself and wife, his children and grandchildren, took place on Thanksgiving day, in 1872 - the celebration of the semi-centennial anniversary marriage. His children, among the tokens of respect, presented the patriarchal father with a gold-headed cane, with which to support his infirm and wearied frame. The moral and religious life of Mr. Bond should not pass without notice. Shortly after his arrival at full maturity of thought and intelligence, he gave to the subject of religion earnest consideration. He sought for, and obtained peace in believing. He first united with the Congregational Church in Ravenna, and at once became an active, working member. The latter years of his life were spent in communion of the M. E. Church, but while giving his hearty concurrence to the doctrines and polity of this denomination of christians, never showed the least sign of narrowness or bigotry in his church relations. He took extreme delight in fellowship and worship with sincere and earnest christians of every name. The current of his religious life was a broad, full and ever flowing stream. Although a general reader, he was a close bible student. Through storm and sunshine alike, he was to the last few months of his existence always found in his place in the church and bible class, with a thoroughly studied lesson. His relation of christian experience was always fresh, genial and hopeful. When asked by an old friend a short time before his death, of his future prospects, his reply was, “oh, I wish to be away.” His last sickness was protracted, and his approach to the last scene of life, was like the sun after a long summer's day, sinking quietly beyond the western hills only to arise more gloriously on the mourn of that eternal day that awaits the truly pious and good.

Excerpts describe the 100th birthday celebration of Conrad's 2nd daughter, Matilda. BOOSINGER ORIGINS by Roger Taylor PART I “Family historians pretty much agree that our Boosingers came to the New World from Germany. So the next question should be: Who was the first Boosinger to emigrate to the New World? Family historians may never be able to positively document who this person was. There is some evidence that points toward Conrad as the first to emigrate. There is also evidence that a German by the name of Johannes Buessinger might have been the first Boosinger relative to arrive on these shores. Please keep in mind that there could be other scenarios that could provide an answer to this question. The evidence that suggests that Conrad was first to reach our eastern seaboard is based upon a letter in the Mormon Church files that begins with the following statements. "We have evidence that Conrad Boosinger and his wife Catherine Barbary Yancer were married in Germany and their oldest child Barbara was born in 1772 and christened Barbara Von Buessinger in Wurtemburg, Germany." The letter continues by saying, "We also have records of their second child Matilda having been born 10 Mar 1775 in Philadelphia so we believe that the family came from Germany to the colony of Pennsylvania between 1772 and early 1775." The people who believe the theory that Conrad wasn't the first Boosinger to arrive to the colony of Pennsylvania, trust a 19th century local historian named Charles Bronson. In his notes he wrote that Conrad was born in 1752 along the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania. I believe Bronson may have used some of Conrad's children as a source for his notes. Another genealogist passed along some information that helps to support Bronson's claim. As so often happens in genealogical research, a hunch about a person doesn't prove true. While ending up proving he wasn't related to Conrad he came across some interesting pieces of trivia that he was kind enough to pass on. The genealogist researcher wrote, "Most of the information I have for the Johannes Businger is from original records since I have never found published records that went beyond Conrad. Anyway, the Ship Harle listing is found in Strassbergers book of ship passenger lists for the port of Philadelphia. German speaking immigrants were required by law to sign these lists upon reaching Philadelphia. The only way I can say that this is your Johannes is that I have researched every one of the other dozen or so immigrants with similar names and ruled them out. The age, spouse name and spelling variations are also consistent. I do not know where he came from but many passengers on this ship came from in or near Darmstadt." Johannes received a land warrant and survey for 177 acres and 151 perches in Weisenburg Twp., Leigh Co., PA in 1752. I have a copy of the original survey and warrant and will send you a copy if you wish. Conrad is shown there (Weisenburg Twp.) in early tax lists which I viewed at the local FHL." The names of three women with this surname (Bussinger), Elizabeth, Catherine and Sara, appear in the records of Rev. Daniel Schumacher and in the records of nearby Ziegel Church when they served as baptismal sponsors. I assume that these were Conrad's sisters. Conrad's wife, Christina Maria Jentzer also appears in these records. Record of Johanne's death during the French and Indian War is found in Vol. I, pg 161 of the Journals and Papers of David Schultze, published by the Schwenkfelder Library in 1952. It states that, 'On the fourth there was battle on the other side of the Blue Mountains, above Allenmingle (present day Albany) behind John Evert's place. John Bousinger, Fridrich Erb, Peter Puss and Velte Ruther were killed.' The date was January 4, 1756. An editor's note says, 'This battle did not receive much publicity and the only other reference to the event is a notation among the Conrad Weiser papers.' Johanne's estate was partitioned a number of years later and is found in the Northhampton Co., PA Administration Book D, Pgs. 136, 140, 147 and 32. It mentions four children but only gives the name for 'oldest son Conrad'." This is the end of the researcher's note about Johannes, but I would like to repeat the last quote made by the researcher, "oldest son Conrad". Before I go into explaining the proving I've been in the process of doing concerning this researcher's statements, I want to remind you that during the 1700s the population of the Weisenburg Township was very small and it is quite a coincidence that Johannes Bussinger (Bousinger, Businger) had a son named Conrad with such a similar last name. I have not been able to disprove anything that the previously mentioned researcher has stated in his notes. I checked the passenger lists of the ship Harle and found a listing for a Johannes Bussinger (another spelling for Boosinger). He arrived in Philadelphia on September 1, 1736. He was 25 years old at the time and was an emigrant from the Palatine region of Germany. When the researcher mentioned that Johannes owned land in the Weisenberg Township of Lehigh County, Pennsylvania I was a little concerned. I knew that our Conrad was listed on the tax rolls for Weisenburg Township of Northampton County, but not Lehigh. Soon my worries were put to rest when I realized that Lehigh County was formed out of Northampton County during the early 1800s. Another concern about Johannes and his land warrant was the fact that the warrant wasn't issued until 1752 and he arrived in 1736. However, there are at least a couple of reasons for this long delay. First, its possible that the land wasn't the first piece of land he settled on after coming to Pennsylvania. Its also possible that Johannes didn't apply for a land warrant until many years after settling on the land. According to historians of Lehigh County, the Germans in the Palatine region were told that all they needed to do to prefect ownership of land in the wilderness of Pennsylvania was settle and improve the land. That's why so many of the early German emigrants settling in the Lehigh region didn't file for a warrant for 20 or 30 years. They just didn't know any better. I also wondered about the mispelling of the Conrad's and his wife's last name. The researcher stated that according to the records kept by the Rev. Daniel Schumacher at the nearby Ziegel Church, Conrad's name was spelled Bussinger and his wife's name was spelled Jentzer. I do know that sometime after the American Revolution, Conrad's name was anglicized from Bussinger to Boosinger. Boosinger in English sounds a lot like Bussinger in German. In fact, when I look at the spelling of Conrad's last name on his Last Will and Testament, I notice it is always spelled 'Busfinger' or 'Bufsinger'. Then when I translate the early 1800 style of writing (ie. 'f' for and 's', etc.) I can translate Conrad's last name in his Will to Bussinger. Was the name changed to Boosinger after his death? Was his wife's name also anglicized from Jentzer to Yancer after Conrad's death? I did find in a history book published in 1914 a mention about the French and Indian War battle that took place behind John Evert's place. This is supposidly where Johannes Bussinger was killed. Before I leave the topic of who was the first Boosinger to reach our eastern seaboard, I want to present one other fact I came across. Do you remember earlier in this report that the Mormons had a letter which stated that Conrad's oldest daughter was baptized in Wurtemburg, Germany and this was one of the reasons for believing Conrad at sometime lived in Germany? Was Conrad's daughter baptized twice, or was the letter in the Mormon Church files wrong? While looking at baptismal records for the Weissenberg Lutheran and Reformed Congregations in the Weissenberg Township of Lehigh County I came across a baptism record for Catharina Barbara Bussinger that was performed on August 27, 1774. The parents were listed as Conrad Bussinger and Catharina Barbara Bussinger. GERMAN SPEAKING If Conrad was born in Pennsylvania, why did he and his wife have such strong German accents as adults? On numberous occassions, I've been asked this very question. Records tell us that Conrad Boosinger lived in Weissenburg during the American Revolution. Admittedly, Pennsylvania was an English speaking colony during Conrad's time. The answer is quite simple. Even at the turn of the 20th century, Weissenberg was a Pennsylvania Dutch community. Its residents were still descendants of German settlers, and German was the spoken language. In fact, when Conrad was growing up (1750s), the only language being taught or spoken at the only two schools in Lehigh county was German. Soon after 1800, two Englishmen settled in Lehigh County and tried to have English taught in the local schools. The local population strongly opposed the change and many of the schools, especially the church schools, forbade the English language. Conrad's children many also have grown up to speak German. There is a story about one of Conrad's sons named John. The incident happened after the Boosingers moved to Ohio. According to family tradition, John had been sent on an errand. Before he could return home, the woods started getting dark. Due to his bashfulness and the feeling that he couldn't speak English well, John decided to spend the night in the woods rather than go to a cabin he saw in the distance and ask the owner for some shelter. The story goes on to say that he built a fire and laid down next to a tree. Before long he noticed wolves starting to swarm in around him. He heard them howl and knew they were hungry. The wolves started tearing up the ground within 6 feet of the fire. To scare the wolves, he kept his fire burning with small sticks he had gathered earlier. Luckly for John, the fire kept the wolves from touching him. PART II The Patriot According to the Boosinger Book, Conrad served one enlistment during the American Revolution and fought at the Battle of Brandywine in 1777. However, the facts I've uncovered about the early Boosingers go far beyond the 6 or so pages that are devoted to our early Boosingers. To date, I've been unable to confirm the family tradition that says he fought at the Battle of Brandywine. Prior to the revolution, citizens of Northampton county had done a lot to protect themselves from the Indian threat during the French and Indian War. Conrad may have even suffered the loss of his father. Because of the war, England's debt had grown. To raise money Parliament passed the Stamp Act to help pay off some of the debt. In response, many of Northampton's citizens said, in effect, thanks, but no thanks. Conrad may certainly have been one of those people. Conrad served three terms in the Northampton regiment of the Pennsylvania militia. During each of those terms he served under a Joseph Greenwald. Joseph was one of Weissenberg's tanners. He was also old enough to be Conrad's father. In 1778 Conrad served in the 3rd company of the 3rd battalion as a corporal. Family tradition says he served as a teamster during this time. During this enlistment Joseph Greenwald served as Conrad's first lieutenant. In 1780, Conrad served in the 3rd company of the 6th battalion as a sergeant. During this enlistment, Joseph Greenwald was Conrad's captain. In 1782, Conrad served as a private in the 3rd class of the 3rd company of the 6th battalion. Again Joseph Greenwald was chosen to serve as Conrad's captain. In 1783 the American Revolution ended but Conrad suffered from rheumatism for the rest of his life. It was his belief that the rheumatism was the direct result of the hardships he endured while in the army. To date, I have not researched the records to find out what battles he may have fought in during those three enlistments. Before leaving Northampton County, Pennsylvania, Conrad had already started building a family of his own. In 1770 in Northampton County he married Catharine Barbary Yancer, a young lady of German heritage that was born near Philadelphia on June 18, 1753. Like Conrad, she also spoke with a German accent. Before leaving Weissenberg and Northampton County, Conrad and Catharine were blessed with at least five daughters: Barbara, Matilda, Catharine, Christina and Epha. The next part of this Boosinger report will describe a little about the family's travels after the revolution. I want to just take a moment to remind you about your relationship with Conrad and Catharine. Hugh Rice's wife, Christinna Boosinger, was Conrad's granddaughter. In my case, Conrad is my 4th great grandfather. PART III On the Move Philadelphia was the colonial capital for the patriots during the American Revolution. Conrad served as a teamster in the militia. A piece of trivia I find interesting took place when the British defeated the Patriots after the Battle of Brandywine. Philadelphia had to be abandoned by the patriots and congress moved to York, Pennsylvania. Knowing that the British would turn bells and the like into bullets, the patriots gathered the bells and other valuables and put a preconceived plan into operation. Teamsters from Lehigh County would transport the valuables to Lehigh and hide the valuables until the Patriots could once again govern from Philadelphia. Included with the valuables was the Liberty Bell. The Liberty Bell spent a good deal of time during the Revolution, hidden in Lehigh. Conrad wasn't the teamster that moved the Liberty Bell, but I like to think that he might have helped move some of the other valuables from Philadelphia to Lehigh County. Now to leave the realm of possibilities and return to the world of reality and documented family history. When the American Revolution ended, it is believed that Conrad and Catharine moved pretty regularly from 1883 until 1800/1801. In 1783 and 1784 Conrad was listed in the tax rolls of Penns Township in Northumberland County, Pennsylvania. He was assessed a federal supply tax for owning a horse and cow. The scribe who recorded the assessment was obviously English speaking and for the first time I noticed Conrad's last name being misspelled. These records show his last name being spelled Buzinger. Other records show him owning 100 acres in Northumberland. From the tax lists, you'd suspect he was a farmer. That would be a good assumption, but for the rest of his adult life, he was referred to as a tanner. A tanner made leather out of hides and skins. A tanner was important to a community since plastics, and rubber were unknown at the time. Many early Americans were always on the move, looking for more and better land. Conrad seems to have been one of these men. In the 1790s Conrad and Catharine were living in Virginia. It isn't clear how many communities they lived in during that period of time, but most records seem to indicate that they spent sometime in Oldtown and Port Cumberland. Some sources aren't as specific. Those sources might mention the Bussingers were living in the vicinity of the Virginia - Maryland border. In 1800 Catharine gave birth to her fourteenth and last child. Her children in the order of birth were: Barbara; Tilly; Catherine; Christina, she died at the age of three in Maryland; Epha; George, Hugh Rice's father-in-law; John; Polly; Christina; Conrad Jr.; Sally; Jacob; Susan; and Rachel. Some might have considered the Boosinger children as illiterate since they were brought up to speak and read German instead of English. Conrad's son, John, would later say that he celebrated his eightieth birthday before his grandchildren taught him to read English. Afterward, he took pride and satisfaction in reading his English Bible. Before Conrad made his final move to Ohio, he witnessed the marriage of his two oldest daughters in 1796. Matilda or "Tilly" as she was more commonly known, fell in love with a Maryland native who was also of German ancestry named Henry Sapp. The wedding took place in Hagerstown, Maryland on October 7th. He was described as a large, muscular active man of sterling integrity. The newly weds crossed the Potomac River to Oldtown, Alleghany county, Maryland, Mr. Sapp's home and had their wedding supper. They continued to live in this place until the Spring of 1803. I will mention them again in another section of this chapter. For now however, I want to mention the other daughter who had her wedding in the same year. Conrad's eldest daughter, Catharine was usually called by her middle name - Barbara. She married a William Price of Somerset County, Pennsylvania on December 11, 1796. It's my understanding that this marriage was performed without the approval of the Price family. William Price was the son of David Price, a Scotsman, and the Prices didn't believe the Boosingers were up to their social level. Catherine and William spent the first years of their marriage in Somerset. At least until their first four children were born. PART IV I will give you a little background before describing Conrad Boosinger's years in the Western Reserve. In 1662 King Charles II granted the colony of Connecticut "all the land between its northern and southern boundaries extended westward as far as land could reach." Until the mid 1700s land in New England was plentiful. However, midway through the eighteenth century, Connecticut started experiencing a population explosion, and additional land for Connecticut's farmers was quickly becoming difficult to find. But, after the American Revolution was won, its land crisis was relieved somewhat. During the revolution, General George Rogers Clark defeated the British at several of their outposts and claimed what was then the Northwest Territory for the United States. The northern colonies then started disagreeing about which colony would be given control over this new territory. For some time, Connecticut and Pennsylvania argued over the Wyoming Valley. At least until a national court decided that Pennsylvania would be given the territory in a 1782 decision. This forced Connecticut to look else where for the land it so desperately needed. Connecticut's legislature decided to claim all the land west of Pennsylvania's western border. It would be approximately the same size as the Wyoming Valley. They would call this land New Connecticut or the Western Reserve. However, the land was overrun by hostile Indians, and without a treaty, the prospective settlers would be hesitant to settle in the Reserve. Finally in 1795 the.

In June 1816, he settled in Brimfield Township, one and a half miles west of Brimfield Center, the first permanent settler in the township, where he resided until his death at the advanced age of ninety years. He had eight children, five sons and three daughters. The subject of this sketch, who was reared in Brimfield Township, receiving a limited education in the common schools, is a wheelwright, carriage and wagon-maker by trade. On reaching maturity he worked for four years as a journeyman in Pennsylvania and Wayne County, Ohio. In 1843 he returned to Brimfield, embarked in business for himself, and there married in October of the same year Miss Mary A., daughter of Conrad Neff. The issue of this union was five children, two of whom are now living: Ellis A. and Rhoda A. (Mrs. Joseph WHITEHEAD). Mr. Boosinger worked at his trade in Brimfield until 1862, when he removed to Kent and embarked in the boot and shoe business, in which he was engaged about seven years. In politics he was formerly a Democrat, but at the breaking out of the Rebellion joined the Republican party, with which he has since acted.

It seems they moved to California at some time in their lives but I don't know that for sure.Blanche died on the 11th of January 1955 in Somerset County, Pennsylvania. Blanche is buried at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Youngstown, Ohio. This was taken from information on the death certificate I received 6 Mar. 1990. The following information was taken from the death certificate: A. Blanche was the passenger in a car that was in an accident in Jefferson Twp., Somerset County, Pennsylvania. B. The main contributing factor that caused her death was a fractured skull. Other factors were head injuries, chest and internal injuries. From the time she was brought in till the time of death was 3 1/2 hours. C. William E. Cunahan was the informant. D. The death certificate states that Blanche was the passenger in the auto that left the road and (illegible) possibly struck hood. E. Time of death was 12:15 P.M. F. Also states her usual residence as 2390 San Antonio Ave., Uplands, CA.

  2286. Obituary BORTS, Howard Warren Tribune Chronicle, Mon, 20 Aug 1923 p. 1:1. Warren Man Lost His Life in A ------ Thigh was penetrated by board Howard Borts Thrown From Auto Sustained Injuries Which Caused Death NEPHEW ESCAPES INJURY Truck Left Road and Crashed Through Fence Near Niles Yesterday Howard Borts, aged 36 years and a resident of Warren for the past twenty five years, is dead as a result of an accident which occurred on the River Road a mile west of Niles, near St. Stephen's cemetery on Sunday morning at 11:30. Borts was returning from Niles with his nephew, Thomas Finch, who was driving the car, when it struck a rut in the road, a tire was torn from the left front wheel, and the car was pitched forward crashing through a fence. Borts was thrown from the car with a terrible force. In the fall a piece of fence board penetrated his right leg, tearing the leg in a frightful manner, and passing through the thigh. His left leg was also crushed below the knee, when he landed under the front part of the truck. Finch was thrown clear of the wreck and escaped any serious injury, but was completely overcome by the shock and was taken to his home on Homewood avenue in Warren by men who came by just after the accident occurred. Borts was rushed to the Warren City Hospital in Holloway's ambulance and he was immediately taken to the operating room where the leg was amputated. He died before he could be removed from the operating room. Death was due to the loss of blood which he suffered when the leg was torn by the piece of fence board. The body was removed to the undertaking rooms of W.J. White, on North Park avenue, where it will remain until Tuesday evening when it will be taken to the home of his sister, Mrs. George Foos, 808 Terra Alta avenue. Funeral services will be held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Foos, Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock, when Captain Rickard, of the Salvation Army will officiate. Burial will be made in Oakwood cemetery. Mr. Borts was born in Ohltown, on February 14, 1886, and received his education in the Ohltown school. He came to Warren when a boy, and has been well known to many friends here, who regret very much to learn of his tragic death. For the past year he had been employed by the Frank George Construction Co. on the Red Run sewer, and resided with his niece and nephew, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Finch, 613 South Homewood avenue. He was a member of the Salvation Army, and of the Eagles Lodge, and is survived by two sisters, Mrs. Katherine Harlan, Mrs. George Foos, and two brothers, Charles and Seymour Borts, all of Warren.

The family settled in Ellsworth township, and cleared up the place now owned by George Hardman (sic Harding). The family of Philip Bortz, Sr. consisted of three daughters and two sons, of whom one daughter and one son survive. Philip, Jr., was the oldest son. He resided in Ellsworth township until about 1833, when he removed to Youngstown, and settled on the place now owned by his sons George and Philip, then consisting of two hundred and seventy acres. It was then but little improved. A log cabin and a double log barn then stood on the place. He cleared up the place, and put up a good dwelling, which was destroyed by fire about 1855. He died in 1852. He raised seven sons, of whom George and Philip are the only survivors. William, the youngest son, was a member of the Sixth Ohio cavalry, and was killed in the service.

  2338. Obituary BORTS, William, 1843-1864 Mahoning Register, 9 June 1864 p. 3:1. “Losses in the Sixth Ohio Cavalry” “The Sixth Ohio Cavalry has borne a conspicuous part in most of the cavalry fights had with the enemy since the inauguration of Grant's movement against Richmond. In Sheridan's first raid around Richmond it led the advance - the Senior Captain, James S. Ansell of Trumbull County, losing his life while charging the enemy. The total loss of the Regiment in that expedition, in killed; wounded and missing, was 40 men. In the terrific fight on Saturday, May 28th, near Salem Church, Hanover county, Va., it again suffered heavily, William N. Borts, of Co. G, a re-enlisted veteran from Youngstown, and a brave soldier, was killed, and Sergeant T. Reeves and Private J. B. Miller, of the same company, were wounded-the former in the arm; the latter in the hip. No regiment engaged in the war has given a better account of itself than has the Sixth Ohio Cavalry. The following particulars of the death of young Borts, are contained in a letter to his brother George; Camp Of 6th Ohio Cavalry Patunka River, May 29th, 1861 Dear Friend; I sit down to write you the sad intelligence that William is dead. He was shot through the bowels yesterday about 4 p.m., by a ball from an Enfield rifle, and lived until one o'clock this morning. I was with him until 12 o'clock, and put him in an ambulance which was to take him back to the Corps Hospital, but he died on the way. He was sensible to the last, and talked about his wound getting well, and was of opinion that he would recover. Our regiment lost nine killed, 22 wounded, and 2 missing. Major Northway was killed and 3 officers wounded of our regiment. It was a hard fight. We fought as infantry and drove the enemy two miles. There were four of Co. G. killed and wounded. Sergt. Truman Reeves was shot through the left arm, and it was amputated, Joseph B. Miller was shot in two places-first through the thigh and then the ankle. A new recruit was shot through the breast. I think they will get along well. The army is fighting almost every day. From your friend, John Smith Another letter, from E. D. McKee says; 'I saw your brother respectfully buried, and have marked the place so that he can be found at anytime. I have such things as he had about him, and will send them to you as soon as I can.'”.

  2351. Ibid., Fri, 10 Dec 1897 Article 46. We know but little of Edward, the youngest child and son of Dr. Bostwick. In early life he went to the town of Medina, Ohio, and engaged in business, where I think he spent the greater part of his life. He gained quite a notoriety in the never-to-be-forgotten political campaign of 1840 - a campaign where one party won by hard singing and hard cider - where tens of thousands of people, if not absolutely insane were so near it that the difference was not discernable. We have seen lively times since, but nothing in comparison to those of 1840. The nearest approach was the excitement growing out of the capture of Fort Sumpter in 1861. Ed. Bostwick, in 1840, composed a number of campaign songs that were immensely popular and were sung all over this region, and we know not how much beyond. These songs were sung on that memorable occasion at the big meeting at Warren. This meeting took place something over 57 years ago. No one of the many thousands who attended it ever did or will forget the event. The road from Canfield to Warren was a continuous line of people - on foot and horseback, in every conceivable kind of vehicle - many drawn by long lines of horses and oxen, on some were log cabins filled with shouting, cheering, singing men and women. I was fortunate in procuring a good observatory in the long procession. My berth was on the hurricane deck of an old time stage coach. In this age of reunions, why not have one for the old veteran campaigners of 1840? The proper place to relight the camp fires would be on the old camping ground around the Warren court house. The old vets may have lost their voices for music, but with their canes and crutches could talk over the way in which campaigns are lost or won.

Mahoning Dispatch, Fri, 18 June 1897 - Article No. 22 by Dr. Jackson Truesdale Canfield in Early Times, The Changes of a Century Noted Re: Herman - Canfield Family cont. Excerpt: "Mrs. Fitie Canfield, aside from being the daughter of a celebrated clergyman and author, was otherwise well connected. After the death of her mother, she with a sister, was intrusted with the care of five younger children. When the father died in 1793, the family scattered. She went for a time to live with her cousin, Hon. Elijah Boardman and afterwards with Hon. Judson Canfield until married. When she came to Canfield she found the country new and everything to prepare for housekeeping. Mr. Canfield had many men in his employ in his various enterprises - many "comers and goers." Female help was difficult to procure. All these contributed to entail on Mrs. Canfield a load of responsibility, care and personal labor such as few housewives were called upon to endure. All these, we are told "she bore with the most indefatigable, smiling industry." The forgoing quotation, I am pleased to say, was not coined by Mr. Whittlesey, but by a reverend Dr. Barkhaus, who applied the phrase first to the Rev. Dr. Bostwick, Mrs. Canfield's father, and now re-applied to the daughter. The phrase, I think, means tireless industry, accompanied with constant, happy smiles. The children of Mr. Canfield and wife Fitie were William H. Canfield, Elizabeth M., Cornelia, Laura, and Herman. William studied law in Judge Newton's office and removed to Medina, where he accumulated a handsome competency in the practice of law, and lost all of it by misplaced confidence in some one or two young men he had befriended. He established a bank in Medina and entrusted these young men to manage it. The result was, someone else got all the money, and Mr. Canfield was left penniless. Before this he served one or more terms as judge of the court of common pleas in a district embracing Medina county. Disheartened by his losses he concluded to try his fortune elsewhere, and removed to Kansas, where he succeeded to such an extent as to be elected to the bench a second time. He died at a place and date unknown to his friends here. None of the three sisters married. Cornelia, when last heard from, was living in Kansas at an advanced age. Herman, the youngest of the children, was born in 1817. I remember him somewhat indistinctly when we were both young. One event that brings him to mind was sitting up with him one night during a protracted illness on his part in 1837. My recollection of him is to the effect that he was an amiable, quiet young man, with a delicate constitution. He also became an attorney and successfully practiced his profession. I am uncertain as to his location while in practice, but think it was either Medina or Sandusky. He represented his district for one or more terms in the Ohio Senate, a fellow member with Judge Newton. In the civil war he took active part in organizing the 72d regiment of O.V.I. and went to the front as its lieutenant colonel. Colonel Ralph P. Buckland commanded the regiment. The latter named obtained his law education in the office of Judge Newton, and both student and preceptor married half sisters, daughters of Mrs. Eli T. Boughton. Lieut. Col. Canfield gave up his life on the bloody battlefield of Shiloh. Col. Buckland came home after the war a brigadier-general, and afterwards represented Sandusky congressional district four years.”.

Hine, west of the village, Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock. The deceased was born in Warren, Litchfield county, Conn., in 1810 and was therefore in the 85th year of his age. He was the second son of the late David Hine, who settled in Canfield in 1811. Here he spent the most of an active and useful life, for years being one of the largest dealers in stock in the county. In 1836 he married Rhoda Tichner, also a native of Connecticut, who died in 1888. About two years ago while visiting in the east he was stricken with paralysis and had since been confined to the house much of the time. He leaves one sister, Mrs. W. Y. Comstock of this township, and one daughter, Mrs. Kate Coffee of Cleveland. Funeral services conducted by Dr. Dickson Sunday afternoon were largely attended. The interment was made in the village cemetery.

  2361. Ibid., Mrs. Harriet Cronk, widow of the late Wm. Cronk, died at her home in Canfield, on Tuesday morning of this week. She was born in Canfield, May 18th, 1810, and therefore lacked only a few months of being 82 years of age. The death of this worthy, and exemplary Christian lady severs another link connecting the past with the present. When living she was so far as the writer knows, the oldest native born person in the township; and her uninterrupted residence among us covers almost the entire history of Canfield from its first settlement to the present time.

But as the years came and passed away, the clouds and darkness became more impenetrable - for many years before her death there were no lucid intervals, but in this pitiful condition she remained mild and docile, shrinking from the sight of all save her family; carefully and tenderly nursed by her children until relieved by death Jan. 12, 1892, aged 83. Harriet's husband was Wm. Cronk. For half a century his slow measured tread was a daily occurrence on our streets - a shoemaker by trade, an occupation when learned as lucrative and respectable as any other, but when too late to mend, he found that with his hands alone he could not compete with
