Nash, Gertrude [Oliver]

Death of Mrs. Gertrude Nash
     Although the death of Mrs. Gertrude Nash has been expected at any moment for the past two weeks, it came with a sudden shock to her relatives and host of friends in this city Thursday afternoon. Many a tear was shed when the sad news of her death came. Born and raised in Galliplis, she was known to all as one of the most beautiful and talented of women, a graduate of the Gallipolis High School in 1884 and was married to Mr. Frank Nash in 1887.
     She was considered to have had spendid health until April 1902 when she took sick and from that time on she grew rapidly weaker and weaker, and although she suffered much she was always so patient, with the hope of some day being better.
     She leaves her little daughter, Miss Elenore aged 13 years, her father, mother, Mr. and Mrs. Oliver, and brother James to mourn her death. The funeral services will be held from her late home Sunday afternoon at 2 p.m., conducted by Rev. Magee, burial at Pine street cemetery by Hayward & Son.
     The pall bearers will be S. H. Eagle, W. O. Miles, H. C. Johnston, G. A. Roedell, W. B. Fuller, A. D. Alcorn, Chas. Cadot, Geo. Bovie and E. N. Deardorff.

Nash, Gertrude

     The funeral services of Mrs. Gertrude Nash were condcted at her home which was the home of her parents Capt. and Mrs. J. C. Oliver, Sunday afternoon, March 15, 1903, by Rev. L. L. Magee, Pastor of Grace M. E. Church, the burial following at Pine street cemetery by Hayward & Son.
     The last sweet song sang over the remains was by Mr. James M. Neal, Mr. W. O. Miles, Miss Lititia Mills, Miss Pearl Blake, accompanied by the organist Mrs. Marable Erwin. The floral escort consisted of Mr. George Bovie, Mr. Chas. Cadot and Mr. E. N. Deardorff. The pall bearers were Messrs. A. D. Alcorn, S. H. Eagle, G. A. Roedell, H. C. Johnston, W. B. Fuller and W. O. Miles.
     The attendance was quite large and would have filled the largest church in the city. The lavish contribution of floral tributes excited the highest admiration. The casket was of the richest and most beautiful design, and the tomb never closed on a fairer or sweeter lady in the Pine street cemetery. The green grass that will grow above her and the flowers that will come to bloom and shed their fragrance about her narrow home, will tell this to even the stranger that may walk that way.
     Sweet and amiable in girlhood and womanhood, her death moistened the eye of every one that knew her, and the heart of every one will love to cherish her memory. Those bound to her by closer ties will feel that there is no balm in Gilead for such a wound as this. And there isn't. They will carry the wound until the fruition of their hope is realized on the immortal shore, even though their bodies lie for ages in the womb of time. The wound will never be healed until the spirit meets its own.
     All deaths are sad. We have yet to realize the compensation, the consolation and the good that comes of this great sorrow. Every thought since the creation that sprang bidden or unbidden into the mind of man and found expression in song or story has miserably and helplessly failed to heal this wound. The Son of God, Himself, implored that the cup might pass from Him, but did it? There are degrees of sorrow from this cause. All persons have not the faculty of attaching themselves so powerfully to those with whom they come in contact as have some, "but death is terrible" and when it strikes those we love it hurts us more than if it struck us, for then we would be at rest. He who wrote this world a world of tears, meant what he said and said what he meant.
     Just eight days less than a year ago a most estimable young lady only a few steps from the home of Mrs. Nash, Miss Mame Cavin, was torn from the embrace of her parents and brothers and sister. Go ask the bereaved ones if their wound has healed. Go back fifty years to mother, father, sister or brother, who died and left you crushed and desolate, and ask if the wound is healed. It is idle and folly to talk of mortal wounds healing. Death is our enemy and he gets us all and destroys all those we love and those who love us.

Nash, William

Death of Hon. William Nash

     Hon. William Nash died at the residence of his brother, S. A. Nash, Esq., in this city, last Tuesday morning, at four o’clock. He had been ill for a long time, and his death had been expected for weeks.
     The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. E. I. d’Argent, at the Presbyterian Church, on Thursday afternoon, at half past two o’clock, the burial being at the Old Cemetery by Hayward & Son. The funeral was under the auspices of the Masonic Fraternity, of which the deceased had been a member for many years. There was a large attendance at the funeral, testifying to the esteem in which Mr. Nash was held by the citizens of the town with which he had been so prominently identified for so many years.
     William Nash was born in South Hadley, Mass., on the 18th day of July, 1817. He learned the printer’s trade in Springfield, Mass., worked for awhile in New York City, and came to this city in 1838, taking a position on the Gallipolis Journal, of which Capt. Alexander Vance was editor and proprietor. In 1839, he bought a half interest in the paper, became its sole owner soon afterwards, and with the exception of short intervals was connected with it up to the time that death claimed him.
     He was prominent in Whig and Republican politics in this part of the State for many years, and was elected to a great many different offices. He was Mayor of this city, County Treasurer for two years, County Auditor for eight years, member of the State Board of Equalization in 1870, and member of the State Senate in the Sixtieth General Assembly. In 1880, he was a delegate to the Republican National Convention.
     His services to the political parties with which he was identified were constant and able, and his advice was always sought upon important matters with which they had to deal.
Since 1889, Mr. Nash had not done much work upon the Journal. The infirmities of age were creeping upon him, and he spent his declining years at the residence of his youngest brother, Mr. Samuel A. Nash. During the last two years he did no editorial work.
     He was a member of the Presbyterian Church, with which he became connected about seven years ago. The death of Mr. Nash is universally regretted throughout this town and county. Although expected, the news which reached his large circle of friends last Tuesday morning was sad, indeed. He was one of our most worthy citizens, and our people held him in the highest esteem.

Neal, Albert H.

Albert H. Neal Died Wednesday At Home
Had Been In Ill Health For Many Years
     Albert Hibbard Neal, son of Major and Mrs. S.F. Neal, died Wednesday afternoon at his home after many years of ill health. He was born in Gallipolis fifty-four years ago and had lived here all of his life with the exception of thirteen years he spent in the West.
     In 1901, he went to Arizona in the hope that the climate would benefit his health. He remained in the West until 1914 and while in Arizona was employed on the construction of the great Roosevelt Dam. Upon returning home he had assisted his father in his business on Vine Street until about a year ago, since which time he has been unable to have any interests outside his home.
     Besides his venerable parents, he leaves his aged aunt, Miss Eliza Neal, who has always been a member of his family. He never married.
     Funeral services will be held at his late home Friday at 2 p.m., Rev. Hugh Evans, a former Pastor of his family, conducting. Interment will be in Mound Hill in charge of W.N. Hayward.

Neal, Anderson

     We regret to announce the sudden death of Mr. Anderson Neal, of Green Township, one of the worthy and respected citizens of the county, which occurred last Saturday, July 15th.
     On last Wednesday Mr. Neal came to the city and sold his wool to C. Mack and Son. He was then complaining of a boil on the inside of his nose which gave him great pain. On Friday his suffering had become so great that Dr. James Johnston was called. Dr. Johnston took the trouble to be erysipelas and gave medicine for that disease.
On Saturday morning he visited him again and found him with the unmistakable case of malignant erysipelas. He had also sustained an attack of paralysis, which affected him all over. The disease had probably gone to the brain and superinduced the attack of paralysis, from both of which he passed away that afternoon about four o'clock.
     His funeral services were preached by Rev. O. Ebright, Sunday afternoon, at Mt. Zion. There had been a large basket meeting at the church in the morning and some four or five hundred persons had gathered and intended for the most part to remain to the funeral services but the report obtained circulation that he died of small-pox and panic ensued which nearly broke up funeral and all. However, there was quite a large number at the residence who knew there was no foundation for the report and fortunately the funeral services were well attended.
     It was unfortunate that such a report should have obtained credence, as it only needlessly added grief to the family. Mr. Neal had been exposed slightly to small-pox somewhere from 30-35 days previous, which was the foundation for the report, but 12-14 days after exposure is the proper time for it to make its appearance and the fact only goes to show that it could not have been small-pox.

Neal, Anderson

     Mr. Anderson Neal of Green Township died rather suddenly at his home on Saturday, His physician, Dr. Johnston, pronounced the disease to be erysipelas and the immediate cause of death to be congestive apoplexy. At the funeral, Sunday, at Mt. Zion, the impression gained ground that he had die of smallpox and a panic ensued in consequence. We are enabled to state that he did not die of smallpox.
     The county has lost another good citizen and we wish a sketch from some of his friends for next week's publication.

Neal, Cornelius Christopher

Cornelius C. Neal
     Cornelius Christopher Neal, son of Stephen and Sarah Berridge Neal, was born Oct. 16,1853 in Harrison township and departed this life Friday morning, Jan. 18, 1935, at the home of his granddaughter, Mrs. Herman Harrison of Northup, where he had made his home for a number of years past.

He is also survived by one brother, E. L. Neal, druggist in Gallipolis, four granddaughters, six great-grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends to mourn their loss.
     While he had been in failing health for some time, his death was a shock to his friends and neighbors. All that loving hands and medical aid could do was done to relieve his sufferings. Yet the angel of death called and he answered the summons from on high. Mr. Neal was converted and joined the M. E. Church at Mt. Carmel in 1874 and lived a consistent Christian until his death.

McCarley at Carmel church Sunday morning at 10:30, six nephews serving as pall bearers. Burial by Undertaker Halley.

‘Tis hard to break the tender chord,
When love has bound the heart,
‘Tis hard to speak the words
We must forever part.

Dearest Father we must lay thee
In the peaceful grave’s embrace
But they memory we will cherish
Till we see thy heavenly face.

At rest from all pain and struggle,
At peace in our Father’s arms.
No more shall the trials worry.
No more can suffering harm

Neal, Dessie Violet

In Loving Memory
     Dessie Violet Neal, daughter of Fred and Addie Dewitt Neal, was born July 10, 1899, at Clipper Mill, Gallia County, Ohio, and died at Madison Furnace, Jackson County, March 27, 1920 aged 20 years, 8 months, and 17 days. She had been ill only a few days and underwent an operation for acute appendicitis performed by Dr. C. E. Holzer of Gallipolis. She seemed to grow continually weaker until death claimed her.
     She spent most of her life at Raccoon Island, and in January, 1910, she united with the M. E. Church at Clay Chapel and always took a great interest in all church and Sunday School work. Her faith was a trusting faith that has no fear, and even in death she wore a smile of sweetness, and we are consoled in the thought that she is with God and his angels waiting to join us some day.
     At the age of 17 she came with her parents to Jackson County. She attended Normal school at Rio Grande College where she prepared herself for the profession of teaching. Last year she taught her home school at Madsion and this year she was teaching the Jefferson school near Oak Hill. She was a winsome girl and quickly made friends, and took a great interest in her work. She was a great lover of home and we cannot help but ask why such things occur, but God's will not our's be done. She leaves to mourn their loss her grief-stricken parents, one sister, Miss Laura Lorania, and brothers Riggs D. and Lawrence E. Neal, besides a host of relatives anf friends. Prayer services were held at the home Sunday afternoon by Rev. John P. Jones of Rio Grande. The body was prepared by underaker Lew Hughes for shipment to Gallipolis, Monday morning. Burial was made at Clay Chapel, where she had spent her earlier days.

Dearest loved one, we must lay thee
In the peaceful grave's embrace,
But thy memory will be cherished,
Till we see thy heavenly face.

     We wish to thank the many friends at Raccoon Island; also Rev. Hardin and undertaker Wetherholt for their many kindnesses in our sad bereavement. Fred E. Neal and Family

Neal, Elza Lincoln

Long, Notable Career of E. Lincoln Neal, 81, Ended By His Death
Dean of City’s Merchants Dies After Long Illness
Funeral At 2 Sunday P.M. To Be In Charge Of Knights Templars
     E. Lincoln Neal, dean of Gallipolis and Gallia county merchants died at 4:30 Thursday afternoon [Feb. 5, 1942*] at the home shared with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. H.U. Carnes, 442 Third avenue. For days it was known that his death was imminent, but his illness had really been critical for more than a year. He had been bedfast since Christmas day, 1940, and during that long period was unable to speak. He received constant, tender and expert care, and presumably did not suffer at all, but slowly and unnoticeably succumbed to weakness.

Born in 1860
     Mr. Neal was in his 82nd year, having been born Oct. 21, 1860. He had been a licensed pharmacist since August 13, 1884, and only 27 outranked him in seniority in the state of Ohio. Mr. Neal was the youngest and last survivor of six children of Stephen J. Neal and all of them were born in Harrison tp. The family moved to Gallipolis in 1866 and the father engaged in the grocery business at Vine and Fourth. Fourteen years later E. Lincoln Neal was graduated from the Gallipolis High School. He was one of nine graduates, several of whom have died in the last two years, and among the survivors are Dr. Ella G. Lupton and Miss Virginia E. Myers, both of this city.
     Soon after, or possibly before his graduation, Mr. Neal accepted a position at the P.A. Sanns drug store on the Park front. It was there that he obtained the experience that won him a pharmacist’s certificate and he remained at that store until he opened the drug store at the corner of Second and Locust in 1890. With unflagging zeal and the steadiness of a clock he worked seven days and seven evenings a week year after year until the infirmities of advancing age forced a change in his schedule late in 1940.
     On December 29, 1886, Mr. Neal and Mary E. Mullineux were married here by Rev. R. H. Coulter – more than 55 years ago. In 1909, a decade after he had entered business for himself, they erected a comfortable and attractive home on the site of Mrs. Neal’s birthplace. She died there Nov. 25, 1938.
     In his boyhood Mr. Neal united with Grace Methodist church. In his young manhood he became a Mason and eventually a Knight Templar, but in recent years had severed his other lodge connections. At one time he served the city as its clerk and was a member of the local board of education for several terms. After serving longer than any of his colleagues Mr. Neal resigned last year as a member of the First National Bank directorate and for perhaps a period of comparable length he had served the Gallipolis Building & Loan Company.
     There survive, besides the daughter, Mrs. Eleanor Carnes, two sons, Howard, a partner of his father in the drug business, and Dr. J.M. Neal, Minneapolis. There are six grandchildren. Dr. John Carnes, now a lieutenant in the aviation service and stationed at Luke Field, Phoenix, Arizona; Miss Elizabeth Carnes, teacher at home here; James Bush Neal and Gilbert Lincoln Neal, Gallipolis; Joe Dahl and Mary Jane Neal of Minneapolis.
     Funeral services, under the auspices of the Knights Templars, will be conducted at the home at 2 o’clock Sunday, with Rev. W. Scott Westerman in charge. Interment will be made in Mound Hill Cemetery by George J. Wetherholt & Sons.

Neal, Ira L.

Ira L. Neal, 64, Grange Leader, Passes Suddenly Sunday Forenoon
Rites Set For 2 P.M. Tuesday At Mercerville Church
     Every community in this county will be shocked by the news of the death of Ira L. Neal at 11:15 a.m. Sunday at his home at 101 Garfield Ave. Mr. Neal became ill Thursday night, after working all day as usual for Judy Motor Sales as salesman and office assistant. He remained abed and passed away as the result of a coronary thrombosis (blood clot).

Headed Pomona Grange
     Mr. Neal was one of the county's best known Grange leaders. Before moving to Gallipolis about five years ago he served as master of the Swan Creek Grange and then was elevated to the post of master of Pomona Grange and was active in the state organization.
     He was in his 65th year, having been born Nov. 19, 1883, near Mercerville, a son of James and Frances Wood Neal. His first wife and a son and nephew were drowned in the Ohio River near the mouth of Swan Creek about 20 years ago. (More about the triple tragedy will be given in the formal obituary).
Rev. Earl Cremeens and Rev. Kenneth Riggs will conduct the funeral services at 2 p.m. Tuesday at the Mercerville Baptist Church. Burial will be made in Mound Hill Cemetery by C.R. Halley.
     On Sept. 26, 1923, Mr. Neal and Gertie Garlic, a native of the same township, Guyan, were united in marriage. They lived for 20 years at Swan Creek, where he had a store at least part of that period. For the last two years they have occupied rooms in the home of Mrs. Goldie Niday.
     Surviving Mr. Neal, besides his wife, are a son, Buell Neal and two grandsons, Donald and David Lee Neal, all of Baltimore, Md. There are two brothers, Bert Neal living back of Gallipolis on the Chillicothe Rd. and Clyde Neal, Garfield Ave. Buell Neal arrived here this morning after an all night drive.
     Ira Neal was a genial, like-able, even-tempered man of wide acquaintance in his native county. His wedlock was happy and harmonious and he was particularly esteemed by his close neighbors. He took a deep interest in local politics and was a familiar figure on the streets of Gallipolis, usually chatting with a group of friends about the lively topics of the day. He will be greatly missed and Mrs. Neal is disconsolate over the loss of her devoted helpmate.

Neal, Ira Lester

OBITUARY
     He was a friend of truth of soul sincere; in action faithful and in honor clear; who broke no promises, served no private ends; sought no title and forsook no friends. How clearly do the words of the poet apply their meaning to Ira L. Neal, who answered the final summons at his home on Garfield Avenue, Gallipolis, Ohio, last Sunday morning [May 9, 1948*] and on the wings of faith that he had embraced in His Risen Savior went triumphantly to live within the realm of eternal bliss.
     He, the son of James Monroe and Frances Wood Neal, was born November 19, 1882, near Mercerville in Guyan Twp., Gallia County, Ohio. Being the next to the youngest son in a family of seven children, Mr. Neal learned much in his paternal home survive. C.B. and life that marked his conduct throughout his years. Though he lived almost the allotted time of man, yet never for any length of time did Mr. Neal seek fame or fortune in a distant land, always content to live among those he knew and loved so well, near to the place of his early childhood. With his passing, but two of his paternal home survive, C.B. and Clyde.
     In the year of 1908, Mr Neal was unified in marriage to Jessie Campbell. To this union were born two sons, Lee and Buell and while living at Swan Creek in Ohio Twp., Gallia Co., Ohio, on July 16, 1921, a stark tragedy struck the Neals when Lee, then eleven years of age, his mother and cousin drown in the Ohio River.
     For a vocation of life, Mr. Neal was a merchant for more than a score of years, among those who knew him well, he by fair dealings and courteous treatment he prospered by giving much of himself to the day’s business. The fame of the Neal’s Store was known throughout the entire southern part of Gallia County. After retiring from the vocation of merchant, Mr. Neal was a valuable employee of the State of Ohio in building of the highways, later he served as the custodian of the courthouse of his native county.
     On September 26, 1923, Mr. Neal was united in marriage to Gertrude Garlic and for nearly one quarter of century they enjoyed the boon companionship of each others love. From their home emanated true friendship and good fellowship. They gave much of themselves to their community that the plain of life among their own might be on a higher level. To every cause that was worthy of their attention they gave themselves unstintingly. The Neals were much interested in the Grange and Mr. Neal served his local Grange three times as its master. Master of the Pomona Grange and Representative of his county five times to the State Grange.
     Under the ministry of the Reverend Jennings Cremeens at Mt. Zion, Mr. Neal accepted Christ as his personal savior and by both precept and example in his daily walk of life, he emulated the Christ of Galilee. Mr. Neal though not known to many from a distance was a great influence on those of his own locality. Especially was he a friend of the younger group. A little girl of seven stated “he played with me” while a lad of five states “he was good to me”, could be said perhaps by hundreds more but perhaps more than these are the loss to his two grand sons who knew him best. [unreadable] community will be a blow that will indeed leave a mark, not only to his devoted wife, his son, his brothers, but to all who will miss that ready smile, a cheery greeting, and a friendly grip of the hand.

Today may end all thought about the morrow
Today may end all tempting cause for fears
Today may terminate all earthly sorrow
All sense of human heart-break, grief and tear
Today may bring the wonder and the glory
The entrance quick into the Home so fair;
The full revealing of life’s finished story;
The Master’s tribute – which hath no compare
Today perhaps, I’ll meet with loved ones cherished –
And reunite the bonds of long ago;
Those precious links which for a time have perished –

Precious Lord, take my hand,
Lead me on let me stand,
Thru the storm, thru the night
Lead me on to the light.
Take my hand, precious Lord,
Lead me home.
When my way grows drear
Precious Lord linger near
When my life is almost gone
Hear my cry, hear my call.
Hold my hand, lest I fall
Take my hand, precious Lord,
Lead me home.

     The family and friends of Mrs. Laura Carter Neale, who was born reared in Gallia county, will regret to learn of her death at San Diego, Ca , Jan 24. Mrs. Neale had not been in good health for several years, yet the news of her death from a heart infection came as a great shock. At the time of her mother's passing two years ago in December she was unable to accompany the body back to Patriot for burial.
     She was the only daughter of John H and Abigail Carter long known in the vicinity of Patriot as Uncle Jack and Aunt Abbie. The family lived at Rio Grande for a few years, and she and her brothers attended the college. After teaching two years in Gallia County she went to Washington state where she met Claude Neale whom she later married at her home in Patriot.
     The late Oscar Carter of Rio Grande was a brother. Isaac of Gibsonburg, Ohio, is the only surviving member of what was once one of Gallia County's prominent families. Mrs Neale was a woman of unusual likeableness and personality and she and Mr. Neale had all plans made to drive to Ohio the coming summer to visit relatives and friends...

Needham, Charles W. C. H.

     Mr. Chas. W.H. Needham died this Wednesday morning at 3 o’clock in the Park Sanitarium hospital in New York City. Last Thursday evening, while eating dinner at the Hotel McAlpin he was stricken with appendicitis. Hurried at once to the hospital, the physicians found an operation necessary, and it was performed the next day.
     Mr. Needham rallied from the operation nicely, and the physicians reported him doing well and a speedy recovery was expected. On Sunday, two days after the operation, Mr. O. O. McIntyre reported him getting along all right, and he was even permitted to see visitors and read telegrams from friends. His mother, Mrs. Florence Needham, his sister Miss Carrie, and his little son, all at Washington for the winter, went to his bedside at once on hearing of his illness.
     Evidently a sudden change for the worse set in, of which no news came to Gallipolis, for the messages bearing the news of his death received here this morning, were a shocking and totally unexpected blow to his friends and to the friends of his family.
     Mr. Needham left here about ten days ago for Washington and New York, and it was said to be his purpose to go on to Canada to drill raw troops for the English Army, but we have no authoritative information that this was the case.
     Capt. Verne Bovie and Mr. O.O. McIntyre rendered every assistance possible to the stricken man, Mr. Bovie remaining at the hospital with him over night, and their kindly services have no doubt been extended to his mother and sister since his death. Mr. H. H. Henking received a telegram from Mrs. Needham this morning to the effect that the body would arrive in Gallipolis Thursday noon on the Hocking Valley, and it is understood the Elks will take charge of it, as Mr. Needham was a Past Exalted Ruler of that organization and a very popular member of it.
     Mr. Needham was born in Gallipolis about 44 years ago, and lived here except during his mother’s residence in Kansas City, and a year or two spent in Columbus in the advertising business. He was at one time manager of the Journal newspaper in this city. His wife, who was Miss Sibyl Blanc before her marriage, died Dec. 8, 1913, leaving a bright boy who survives both father and mother. Mr. Needham had many friends in Gallipolis and elsewhere who will be deeply grieved by his death in the prime of his manhood.
     The funeral will probably be held on Friday, with the interment following at Mound Hill by the side of his wife, but no instructions have yet been received by local parties.

Brief Outline of Career of C.W. H. Needham

Burial Here Last Friday
     The body of Charles Willard Henking Needham arrived here from New York at noon last Thursday, accompanied by Mrs. Florence Needham and Miss Carrie Needham, who were joined at Columbus by Fred F. Rathburn and Dr. Garfield Alcorn. The funeral services were held at 10 o’clock Friday at the Episcopal Church under the auspices of the Elks, the deceased being a Past Exalted Ruler of the local lodge. The attendance was quite large tho comparatively so few could be apprised of the funeral arrangements in time. Burial at Mound Hill by Hayward. The pall bearers were Capt. S. A. Dunbar, J. F. Halliday, George Bovie, E. Wayne Sanns, H.H. Henking and Earl Mauck. The flower bearers were W.N. Shartz, H.P. Bradbury, Guy Walker and W.W. Sigler.
     As stated in last week’s paper the news of Mr. Needham’s death caused a profound shock. While it was known here that his sudden illness was so Serious as to necessitate an immediate operation, and while the favorable reports received thereafter were not regarded as positive assurance of his final recovery, not one of his many friends seemed to be prepared for news of his passing.
     The operation showed not only that he was suffering from appendicitis but that the appendix had become gangrenous and that he had peritonitis, blood poisoning and perforations of the stomach. Being a man of great vigor, he rallied from the operation. Since his death it was learned that Dr. Alcorn had advised weeks ago [to undergo an] operation for appendicitis.
     Altho at intervals [he suffered] terribly, Mr. Needham made no complaint. Without doubt he realized the seriousness of his condition. Shortly before his death, when his mother was sitting on the bed beside him, he gently pinched her cheek and said “You are a brave, old mother, aren’t you? We’re not afraid, and we’ll fight it out to the last.” Anyone who knew him well might reasonably have expected such a declaration from him at such a time and under such circumstances; it was characteristic of the man.
     Needham’s career was an interesting and eventful one. He liked adventure and excitement and hated restraint unless it was self-imposed. He was square, frank, aboveboard in all his relations with his fellows.
He was a capable, versatile, vigorous man, who did not care to achieve success over beaten paths but preferred to travel the unbeaten paths lead where they might. He could quickly adjust himself to any situation. He had been a bank clerk, reporter, hotel clerk, advertising agent, campaign manager, soldier. He had when rather young joined a band of adventurers who were headed for Central America with history-making purposes in view when the authorities seized the ringleader. He was in the Cherokee rush, with an old cattleman for a partner. Driving across the prairie in a buckboard and near the head of the procession, Needham was thrown out. His head hit the ground and he was unconscious for hours. The old cattleman threw out a hatchet and a canteen but did not even check his galloping ponies. A few hours later Needham staked off a claim there where his partner had left him. Later he sold this claim or gave it away. Five or six years ago he told the writer this claim was worth $16,000 to $18,000.
     The most interesting chapter of his career, if any were qualified to write more than an outline, would deal with the time he spent in South Africa. There he figured in many thrilling episodes. With new-found friends he had encounters with the natives of the interior; and on one occasion he risked his life to save an American from pursuing band of hostile natives. Needham never referred to the matter; but some years after it happened, the man he saved told of the exploit and gave the story to the newspapers in the hope that he might locate Needham.
     Once he and another American hoisted an American flag and celebrated the Fourth of July. British soldiers undertook to suppress this patriotic outburst and several shots were exchanged. British officers appeared on the scene and told their men not to interfere with the Stars and Stripes on that day. In the Dark Continent, Needham became an intimate friend of the great Cecil Rhodes; of Lord Roberts, the most popular hero of the British empire for a generation; of Barney Barnato, celebrated for his riches and his ignorance. As a fellow passenger on a ship either going to Africa or leaving Africa for London, he became quite chummy with either the Prince of Wales (now King George) or a younger Prince. At the time Needham was not so much interested in the title of his new friend as he was in the latter’s prospect of learning to roll a cigarette under his (Needham’s) tutelage.
     Needham, so many of his friends declare, was acquainted with more people than anyone else they ever knew. All who knew him will regret to learn of his death. None who knew him well will ever forget him. He was sui generis.

Newton, William C.

Death of Capt. William C. Newton
     Capt. Wm. C. Newton, who was a Gallipolis citizen a good many years ago, and after a lapse of many years again a resident of the city for the past five or six years, died at the residence of his cousin, Mrs. Almira Cheney Thursday evening, March 7, 1901, at a little after 9 o’clock. Hayward & Son have charge of the remains, but the funeral arrangements will not be perfected until the arrival of his son A. O. Newton (Ollie) from Livingston, Montana, which will be this evening or Saturday morning.
     Capt. Newton was a son of John Newton and Lydia Safford, and was born in Green township 75 years ago last September. His mother was a daughter of Col. Robert Safford, who cut down the first tree on the site of Gallipolis, and she was a sister of Robt. Safford, Jr., the father of Mrs. Almira Cheney, where Captain Newton died.
     The Captain had brothers, John and James Newton, well known river men, and brothers Dr. Orin and Dr. Robert Newton, distinguished physicians, the former of Cincinnati and the latter of New York; also a sister Mrs. Fannie Perry, of whom we have lost sight. It was an ambitious family and the boys left the farm on reaching manhood, indeed left the plows standing in the field and taking the horse attached thereto. Orin mounted it and with William on behind came to Gallipolis and struck out for themselves. Capts. John, Jim and William became prominent from one end of the river to the other and on the Mississippi.
     William was the last of the family. He has been incapacitated from labor for six or seven years, and his faithful and devoted son Oliver, has supplied all of his necessities and wants. He is a Knight Templar and has been a noble son and is entitled to the high esteem of all of his father’s old friends. He also left daughters, Mrs. Ella Lemings of Cincinnati, Mrs. Fannie -----, somewhere in Ohio, and Mrs. Annie Rust of Little Rock, Ark. His wife and their mother was a daughter of the late Luther Shepard, Mrs. Lucette Newton, and has been dead many years. Capt. Newton’s mother and father are buried at Centenary, and his wife we believe at Cincinnati; else here.
     About three years ago Capt. Newton had a stroke of paralysis, from which he recovered. The last stroke came Sunday very slowly and for a day or two it was thought he might pull through, but by Tuesday he was completely paralyzed and after Wednesday, unconscious. Wednesday morning he told Mrs. Cheney, who with daughter Mrs. Gus Hutsinpiller, have been most devoted in their attentions, that he felt hungry and assented to taking some milk which they gave him, after which he never spoke again. His son Ollie, was telegraphed for Tuesday. He keeps hotel and started at once and has been coming as fast as steam could carry him, in hopes of arriving before his father died, but was unable to do so. Capt. Newton would share the last cent with a friend and had many good qualities, and many friends will feel sad to hear of his death.

Nibert, Homer

Body Of Homer Nibert Found In Mill Creek
     Homer Nibert, 67, was found drowned this afternoon at 12:30 o'clock in Mill creek just across State Highway No. 7 from the bank of the Ohio River, immediately above the Baird Brothers junk yard. A crudely printed note on a small piece of paper was found on the muddy shore: "YOU WILL FIND ME HEAP SO GOOD BY." Fire Chief Walter Wise, assisted by Waldo Tipton, Hector Steele, and Garrett Wills, located the body by using a drag-hook in the 20-foot-deep muddy waters about 25 feet away from the bank nearest the road.

Wrists, Ankles Bound
     Rigor mortis had set in. There a big man's body, lying on its face, was in a semi-flexed position. Wrists and ankles were bound tightly with heavy, insulated wire, leading to speculation among the crowd of 100 or more lining the walk along the highway whether Mr. Nibert committed suicide or was murdered.
     At about 7:30 o'clock this morning James Clark, 12-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Clark, Mill Creek Street went down to the wooded Mill Creek waters to fish and found a cap, coat, and pipe near the water. He went after Constable Roy Johnson, but it was about 11 a.m. before the Constable and Chief of Police, Chester Leaper finally reached the scene, and found an envelope in the coat pocket bearing a Columbus Aid for the Aged letterhead. On the back of it in the same style printing as the note were the letters, "HOMER N."
     Chief Leaper and Constable Johnston went to Mr. Nibert's home in the alley off Eastern Avenue just below the Fair Grounds and asked Miss Ruth Nibert, his daughter, about her father. She said he had been ill for three weeks, and that she had not seen him since midnight Tuesday night. The officers showed Miss Nibert the cap, coat, and pipe, and she identified them as her father's. Dr. Norman Howard Foster, coroner, returned a verdict of suicide at 2:30 p.m.

Nibert, Thomas E. (Bunt)

Thomas E. (Bunt) Nibert Dead
     Many readers of the Gallia Times will be grieved to learn of the sad death of Thomas E. Nibert, or "Bunt" as he was familarly known, which occurred in a hospital at Salt Lake City, Utah, shortly after midnight of Christmas day.
     He was the son of Mr. John W. Nibert of Bladen and taught school in that neighborhood for several years preceding his departure for the West. Except an occasional visit to his relatives in Galia County, Mr. Nibert had been in the west for something like thirty years, principally in the state of Idaho. During his stay in the west he was engaged in various duties teaching school, serving as guard in the state prison and other occupations. He married a western lady who preceded him in death abot twelve years ago. A son, Caleb, now in the merchandising business survies them.
     Mr. Nibert spent many years in and around Malad City, Idaho, where he made many friends who speak in the highest terms of his gentlemanly qualities and sterling worth as a citizen. Mr. J. M. Nibert of Blalden, a brother of the deceased, received a letter a few days ago from McKinley Jenkins, a banker of Malad City, who, was a close friend of "Bunt" and in the letter he gave the full particulars of his sad death. From it we glean a few touching extracts:
    "Your brother Tom (for that was the name he was known by in the west" always came to our house as if he was coming home and he always received a hearty welcome. When he came to town he usually stayed with the people next door to us and then he would come over to our house about every day for a chat. He would stay ten or fifteen minutes and then he would go about his business. The people of Malad always found Tom one of the most honest men in the city. Last fall he went out to a little place called Stone about thirty miles from here to teach school and we did not see him any more until one day I went home from the bank and my sister told me that Tom Nibert had come in from Stone and that he was looking sick. Tom told her that he had been in bed at Stone for two weeks and he thought he had influenza. He said he was going to a hotel and get a room where it was warm and he thought he would be all right in a few days. I did not hear from him any more for two or three days when Dr. Kerns told me that Tom wanted to see me as they decided to take him to the hospital at Salt Lake City, Utah. He had some money in our bank and when I went over he told me that he wanted $100. I went back to the bank and got the money and returned to the hotel and placed it in his hand. He told me that he had peeled a corn on his big toe and that it was giving him some trouble, and the doctors thought it best to go to the hospital at once. They took Tom to Salt Lake and put him in the hospital. The doctor, his son Caleb, and Ed Vaughn, one of the biggest cattlemen in the valley, went along. Ed Vaughn was also a big friend to your brother. That was the last I heard from your brother until the report came from the hospital that Tom had blood poisoning and other complications had set in. Later they performed an operation, cutting his leg off seven inches above the knee. This was of no avail and he died shortly after midnight as already stated. Your brother's son and others came up here with the body and they had a beautiful casket and some real nice flowers. The funeral was one of the best in Malad City. I recognized people that had come for forty miles around here as Tom had taught school all over this country. He was buried in the local cemetery just across from my father's, as he told Ed Vaughn that was where he wanted to be buried. He said he wanted to be buried just across the street from "Old Gold Coin." That was the nick name he had for my father, as he was one of the biggest bankers in Southern Idaho."
     Mr. Nibert's last visit to his home folks here was during last Spring. Besides his father, J. W. Nibert, who is eight-five years old, and J. M. Nibert, the recipient of the letter, Bunt is survived by other brothers and sisters as follows: Orlando and Othneil of Bladen, John of Lancaster, Mrs. Mary Urwin and Mrs. Ella Gilmore of Bladen, Mrs. Laura Ellis of Bidwell and Mrs. Maude Saunders of Northup.

Nida, Edith

Mrs. Edith Nida Dies Suddenly At Home Here After Wednesday Attack
Stricken During Afternoon, Death Comes At 8:50
     Stricken suddenly with a coronary thrombosis at about 3 p.m. Wednesday, Mrs. Edith Nida passed away at her home, 521 First Ave., at 8:05 [sic] last night. Her death came as a terrific shock to her family and friends, for she had been in her usual good health despite her advanced age.
     Her two children, Mrs. John Lupton, Cleveland, and Dr. Braden Nida, Marietta, hastened home when apprised of their mother's critical condition by Dr. Francis Shane, but the end came before they were able to reach here. Particularly tragic in her passing is the blow to her younger sister, Miss Flora Williams, a semi-invalid to whom Mrs. Nida had so devotedly ministered for many years.
     Born July 2, 1867, near Bethesda, Mrs. Nida was the daughter of John Kimber Williams, Civil War veteran and one-time auditor of Gallia County, and Lucy Vermillion Williams. Her parents moved to Gallipolis when her father became county auditor and the First Ave. residence has been the family home ever since.
     She was married to Emory Nida, a railroad man, on September 24, 1893 and they spent most of their married life in the West. Her children were born in Iowa and her husband died in Colorado Springs in 1898. Left a widow with two small children, she returned to Gallipolis and with her stalwart character and great resourcefulness carved out a career of rare usefulness and devotion.
     Mrs. Nida was a past president of the local tent of Daughters of Union Veterans, a member of the Order of Eastern Star, French Colony Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution and Grace Methodist Church.
     Surviving, besides the two children already mentioned are two brothers, John H. Williams, Redlands, Cal., and Arius K. Williams, Cincinnati; and two sisters, Mrs. J. T. Weed (Effie), Columbus, and Miss Flora at home. Also surviving are four grandchildren: Mrs. Charles Morrison and Mrs. George Pfeifer, Columbus, and Braden Nida Jr., and Miss Eleanor Lupton, both students at Ohio State University.
     Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday at the George J. Wetherholt and Sons Funeral Home, the Rev. L. A. Donnally officiating, and burial will be made in Mound Hill Cemetery. Friends may call at the funeral home until hour of the final rites.

Niday, Alden

Alden Niday Dies in Paris, Ill., Hospital
     Alden Niday, aged 30, died at 7 o'clock Saturday night in a hospital at Paris, Illinois. Full particulars of his last illness have not been received here, his brother, Ferrell Niday, said, but it is believed he entered the hospital while en route to Springfield, Ohio, from California. At any rate, he left for the Far West about five weeks ago, this trip, as had previous ones, having been prompted by the hope that a change of climate would give him relief from arthritis. From that ailment he had suffered for more than three years.
     Decedent was born near Crown City and is a son of Stanley Niday, now living on Gallipolis R.D. 2 (Cora community). His mother preceded him in death.
     Alden was unmarried and had been employed for about 12 years by the International Harvester Company at Springfield. Surviving besides the father and brother named are three half-sisters, Mrs. Marjorie Corbin, Gallipolis; Estelle and Betty Jean, at home.
     Funeral arrangements had not been completed when these lines were written.

Niday, C. Ross

C. Ross Niday Dies on Wed.
     Dr. C. Ross Niday, one of Gallipolis most prominent professional and business men, died at his home last Wednesday morning. Dr. Niday who had been ill for a little over a year, made a game fight but finally lost to the grim Reaper.
     A man of broad interests and much energy, he had been one of the prominent figures in the city’s political, business, fraternal and social circles during his generation. He was known for his business sagacity, his charitableness, particularly to underprivileged school children, and as a generous husband and father.
     He was a veteran of the World War, having served as a Second Lieutenant for the 7th Provisional Company Veterinary Training School, Camp Lee, Va., for about two months near the close of the conflict, and had served a term as commander of Lafayette Post, American Legion during the flood year of 1937.
Born on a farm in Harrison township, he early manifested traits of industry and thrift. One of his first enterprises was as a traveling salesman for a wholesale shoe house. And later he entered business here before entering a school of veterinary medicine in Cincinnati.

Bank Director
     For a year or more before his death, or about the time the late S. H. Eagle retired from the Ohio Valley Bank, Dr. Niday became a director of that institution. He was also a member of St. Peter’s Episcopal church and of Naomi Lodge, Knights of Pythias and of Gallipolis Lodge of Elks.
     Charles Ross Niday was born August 19, 1874, the only son of C. J. and Mariah Northup Niday. He married Maude E. Canaday, daughter of James C. and Elizabeth J. Canaday on February 6, 1896 and to them was born one son, Verne, who with the widow and three grandchildren are the only survivors of the immediate family. He was the first cousin of Victor J. Niday of this city and of Chauncey G. Niday of Columbus.
     Funeral services are to be conducted on Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Entsminger Funeral chapel by Rev. Robert Leake, a former Episcopalian rector here, and burial will follow in Pine Street cemetery.

Niday, Dr. Charles Ross

Dr. C. Ross Niday's Long Struggle For Life Ended Today
One Of Leaders Of His Generation In Business And Profession Stricken Year Ago Dies At Home
Funeral To Be Held Thursday
     After a brave and prolonged fight for life following a paralytic stroke more than a year ago, Dr. C. Ross Niday, one of the city's professional and business leaders, died at his home, 805 Second Avenue, at about 9:30 o'clock this morning. His condition was known to be critical for the past several days, having grown progressively worse since a second stroke about mid-October. However, he had maintained a brave cheerfulness almost to the very last and had fought desperately against the approach of death, with his same jovial virility that had characterized his life.

Held On To Last
     He had been actively engaged in the practice of veterinary medicine until he was first stricken on Oct. 8, 1938 and after that recovered sufficiently to dispense medicines and attend to many of the details of his extensive business holdings, which included the Sinclair Oil distributorship here.
     A man of broad interests and much energy, he had been one of the prominent figures in the city's political, business, fraternal and social circles during his generation. He was known for his business sagacity, his charitableness, particularly to underprivileged school children and as a generous husband and father.

World War Veteran
     He was a veteran of the World War, having served as a Second Lieutenant for the 7th Provisional Company Veterinary Training School at Camp Lee, VA, for about two months near the close of the conflict and had served a term as Commander of Lafayette Post, American Legion, during the flood year of 1937.
     Born on a farm in Harrison Township, he early manifested traits of industry and thrift. One of his first enterprises was as a traveling salesman for the wholesale shoe house. And later he entered business here before entering a school of veterinary medicine in Cincinnati.

Bank Director
     For a year or more before his death or about the time of the late S.H. Eagle, retired from Ohio Valley Bank, Dr. Niday became a director in that institution. He was also a member of St. Peter's Episcopal Church and of Naomi Lodge, Knights of Pythias and of Gallipolis Lodge of the Elks.
     His passing is a terrific blow to his widow, who had been forced to take her bed several days before the end came and has brought profound sorrow to unnumbered friends and business associates whose daily inquiries of this paper about his condition indicated the concern they had for him.
     Charles Ross Niday was born Aug. 19, 1874, the only son of C.J. and Mariah Northup Niday. He married Maude E. Canaday, daughter of James C. and Elizabeth J. Canaday on Feb. 6 1896 and to them was born one son, Verne, who with the widow and three grandchildren are the only survivors of the immediate family. He was a first cousin of Victor J. Niday of this city and Chauncey G. Niday of Columbus.
     Funeral services will be conducted on Thursday at 2 p.m. in the Entsminger Funeral Chapel by Rev. Robert Leake, a former Episcopalian rector here and burial will follow in Pine Street Cemetery.

C.G.Niday Kills Wife and Self With Gun
Double Tragedy Near Springfield Brings Sorrow To Two Gallia County Families--Funeral At Silcam 2 Thurs.
     SPRINGFIELD, Sept. 24. (AP)--Clement G. Niday, 65, shot and killed his wife, Elnora, 65, then ended his own life today in a fit of despondency over ill health, Coroner Austin Richards reported. The shooting occurred at the home of a son, Robert, in nearby Tremont City. The Nidays formerly lived near Gallipolis.
     The foregoing dispatch differs from the first report heard here on the dual tragedy. Mrs. Niday had been ill and it was at first assumed that she had died and the grief-stricken husband had then taken his life. Now it is learned that without warning he shot her and then turned his weapon, a shotgun, on himself.
     The Nidays left here about 15 years ago when they went to Tremont City to live with their son, Robert. Both were in failing health.
     Mrs. Niday was a daughter of the late Rev. N.B.Burnett and both she and her husband were born and reared in Guyan tp.
     They are survived by three sons besides Robert to wit: Hobart Niday, 37 Vine street, Gallipolis; Thurman and Earl, Fostoria. Mr. Niday is survived by three brothers, Stanley of Cora, McKinley and Ercel of Springfield. Mrs. Niday is survived by two brothers and a sister, C.V., Earl and Emma Burnett, all of Huntington.
     Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Thursday at Siloam church in Guyan, with Rev. Earl Cremeens in charge. Burial in the Sheets cemetery by C.R. Halley.

[Note: from death certiciates, Clement Niday was born 8 Nov 1875 and died 24 Sep 1940; Elnora Niday was born 10 Dec 1875 and died 24 Sep 1940]

     With deep regret he will be missed by his widow, son and five grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.
We take this means of extending our heartfelt thanks to the many friends for all the kindnesses shown. Dr. T. J. Allison for his untiring efforts, Rev. P. D. Woods for his consoling words, the K. of P. Lodge, the undertakers, Davis & Thomas, the Rio Grande quartet, little flower girls and all who gave beautiful floral offerings during the sickness and death of our dear husband and father.
              Mrs. J. W. Niday and Mr. and Mrs. Fred Niday and family.

Killed instantly by machine gun fire at 6:15 p.m. April 12, 1945, at a village near Ellrich, Germany, the young soldier was acting platoon sergeant who, with another soldier, advanced to silence a machine gun which had pinned his platoon down.

DIED
     NORTHUP-- Mrs. HANNAH NORTHUP was born in the State of New York July 4th, 1809; came to Gallipolis, Ohio, with her parents [Jonathan and Mary Abigail Lacy Gilbert] when but a child; was married to George V. Northup Oct. 19th, 1828; died August 7th, 1887.
     Seldom are we called upon to lament the loss of one more universally beloved and respected than the subject of this notice. Her sterling integrity, gentle and affable disposition, endeared her to all who knew her. She leaves a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn their loss. They laid her to rest in the Gilbert cemetery.

A precious one from us has gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
a place is vacant in our home,
Which never can be filled.

But oh! there's comfort in the thought,
Which comes to the troubled mind;
That they who go are happier far,
Than those who stay behind.

Call not back the dear departed,
Anchored safe where storms are o'er;
On the border land we left them,
Soon to meet and part no more.
                                    DORA.

Northup, John Syler

John Syler Northup
     John Syler Northup of whom we spoke last week, died last Friday evening at 7 o'clock. Mr. Northup was born May 9, 1810, and was consequently 77 years, 2 months and 26 days old at the time of his death. The history of the Northup family dates back to the Ohio Company's Purchase. Daniel Northup, grandfather of the deceased, was a member of that Company, and the ancestor of all the Northups of this county. Mr. Northup was widely and favorably known as a frugal, upright, industrious citizen. The Hon. John W. McCormick, who conducted the funeral services said of him: "He was a man who, when his word was given, made all his actions conform thereto; no one ever doubted the truth of anything he said. His truth, his integrity, his honor was never called in question. He was charitable, just, conscientious and humane. A man whose love of home and country were unbounded." Mr. Northup was the father of four children, of whom but two survive, Milton, living in Klowa, Kansas, and Maggie, who remained at home to take care of her father. Silas, the eldest, died some years ago. Dr. W. T. Northup was cruelly murdered at Haverhill last spring.
     Mr. Northup was connected with many of the old families of this county, among whom were the Smiths, the Roadarmours, the Straits, the McCalls and the Trotters. He was twice married, his first wife being a sister [Mary Ann Smith] to Mr. Elza Smith of this city; his second, Jane Trotter, who was the mother of Dr. Northup, was a grand-daughter of the renowned Ann Bailey. A good citizen has passed away, leaving no enemies, but having the love and respect of all who knew him. This was plainly evidenced by the outpouring of the people, to pay their last respects to his memory. At the cemetery, one was reminded of Dickens' description of the burial of Little Nell.

Norton, A. Locklin

A.L. Norton Passes
End Came at Newark Early This Friday Morning.
     A. Locklin Norton, 36, formerly of this city, and only child of Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Norton, died of double pneumonia at one o’clock this Friday morning. His parents left here yesterday to be at his bedside, and will arrive here with his body this evening. The funeral will be under Masonic auspices Sunday from their home, interment by Hayward following. 
     Locklin Norton was born in Portsmouth. His boyhood was spent in Gallipolis. In 1903, at the age nineteen, he went into a business partnership with Joe Moch in a Newark book and stationery store. He developed rapidly in business talent, the store was prosperous from the start, and he accumulated money rapidly. He died very well-to-do. He never married, was a personally attractive man, made friend easily, was industrious and attentive to business, avoided bad habits, and won the esteem and confidence of the Newark public. He was, in short, a son to be proud of, and the crushing blow of his death on his devoted parents has brought them the sympathy of the entire community. The deceased was a 32d degree Mason and took great interest in Masonic affairs.

Notter, Homer

OBITUARY

The curfew called the knell of parting day.
The lowing heard wind slowly o'er the lea.
The plowman homeward plod his weary way
And leaves the world to darkness and to me.

     Within the Mt. Vernon Sanitorium where he had been for some time the angel of death visited Homer Notter and took from out a pain wracked body the immortal soul. Homer, the eldest son of John and Effie Thornton Notter was born Feb. 20, 1910, Departed this lie Aug. 20, 1943, being more than 33 years of age. Homer was reared to manhood in Harrison Twp of Gallia Co., Ohio and spent most of his entire life in the vicinity of his maternal home.
     As a young man, Homer was much interested in the affairs of his community taking a very active part. He for a time was mail carrier for the U. S. government and served his community in various other ways.
In May, 1933, he was married to Frances Church. To this union were born one son, Homer Gail, to which Homer was very affectionately attached and one of the bitter drugs of his life was the illness he suffered which separated him for a while from his wife and son, for the safety of the child's life.
     For more than two years, Homer has suffered from tuberculosis yet always with a hopeful outlook in life, waiting for the tomorrow. And when the end of life was near he still was patiently hoping 5to repay the hands who alleviated his suffering. With his passing he leaves of his paternal home, his mother, one brother Cecil and one sister Bernice also one half brother Elwin. All that could be done was done to help but the Master called and Homer answered.

Shall I leave naught of the fair saith he
Have but the bearded grain
Tho the breath of these flowers are sweet to me.
I will give them all back again.
