               John Jacob Schneider, one of the oldest residents of this community, died October 30, 1902. He was born at Vorderweidenthal, Rhimphalz, Bavaria, March 1, 1829. When he was four years of age, his parents came to America. His father died very soon after they had made their home here in this new land. In those times, this part of the country was wilderness, and as the father’s support was gone, many hardships were left for the mother with the little children. Hard work was experienced by them all, but it had its rewards. Mr. Schneider was married February 24, 1852, to Miss Eva CHRISTMAN. Two sons were born to them, who with the widow mourn his death. He was a member of the Lutheran Church of Woodsfield and one of those who helped to organize the congregation.
               The funeral services were conducted Friday afternoon by the Reverend T. A. HAFELL. After a short service at the house, the remains were taken to the Church in Woodsfield, where a funeral sermon was delivered in the German language. A number of the members of the congregation sang a few well known German hymns, and as the organ gave forth the time of a funeral march the remains were taken from the Church to their resting place, the Woodsfield cemetery. A great many friends attended the funeral. Mr. Schneider was a well respected and well known in this community. His last days were days of great suffering, but he endured it all with Christian patience and found consolation in the great truths of the gospel making its hope also his hope. His age was 73 years, 7 months, and 29 days.

Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love has bound the heart;

Must we forever part?
Dearest loved one we have laid thee,
In the peaceful grave’s embrace,
But the memory will be cherished
Till we see thy heavenly face.

               On Saturday morning July 29, 1905, at 4 o’clock, the death angel entered our home and called our dear and beloved mother to her home of eternal rest, age 42 years, 8 months and 20 days
               Louisa R. WALTER was the second daughter of Frederick and Margaret HOFF. She was born October 9, 1862, near Miltonsburg, Ohio. She was united in marriage to Herman HOFFMEISTER October 1, 1885, who preceded her to the better land January  15, 1890, leaving three small daughters. Five years later she married Frederick WALTER of Miltonsburg who departed this life January 10, 1899.
               She has been in poor health for several months, but no one thought her end was so near until a few days previous to her departure, when she was stricken very ill, which continued to grow worse until God released her of her sufferings and called her to her home of eternal happiness, where no sorrows or suffering ever come. The cause of her death was Grave’s disease and nervousness. All that could be done was done with kind and willing hands, but all to no avail. She bore her sickness patiently and was never heard to utter a word of complaint. Before her death, she bade all around her bedside good-bye and remarked: “I’m going to Jesus to meet  my dear husband Herman.” She leaves to mourn her sad departure three daughters, Bessie, Louisa and Leona HOFFMEISTER, a father, mother, one brother and three sisters, and a host of other relatives and friends. She was a kind and loving mother, and loved by all who knew her. She was laid to rest amid many beautiful flowers, in this German Evangelical cemetery, at 10 o’clock Monday morning. She united with the Evangelical Church in 1877 and has been a faithful member ever since. She also was a member of the Ladies’ Aid Society at the time of her death. The funeral services were conducted by the Reverend F. A. Meusch.
               Our once so happy home is now robbed in mourning, and we realize the sorrow of desolation that rests over us when such a dear one is called away, but can only say, “God, we shall meet her in her eternal home, never more to part.
               When we think of her cheerful                               face,
                        In this world of pain,
               Then of heaven’s abiding place,
                        In the realm of gain;
               Where no sorrows ever come,
                        That’s to be our home.
               May we meet our dear mamma,
                        Never more to part.                                                                           -Daughters.

               On Wednesday evening, August 1, 1905, at 7 o’clock, the death angel entered our home and called our dear beloved son and brother, Francis, to his home of Eternal rest. Mr. Francis BURKHART was twenty-one years of age and the youngest son of John and Sophia Burkhart, of near Miltonsburg, Ohio.
                On Sunday, August 13, he was accidentally shot while out hunting. It was an awful shock to his parents, sisters and brothers. All that loving hands and medical aid could do was done for him but without avail. On Monday morning, August 14, he was remove to the North Wheeling St. Joseph’s hospital, where the best of care was given him.  His father, brother, and sister were there with him and were at his bedside till the end. It is hard to give him up but we must be resigned to the will of God. Dear Francis said it was God’s will and he was ready to die. A few minutes before he died he bade us all good-bye and told us not to weep for him for he was so happy and was going to God.  We know he is waiting in Heaven to met us again.
               He leaves to mourn his loss, a father, mother, three brothers, five sisters, and a host of sorrowing friends. He was ever a kind, dutiful son, a loving and affectionate brother, and we cannot express in words how we miss our darling Francis. He was a devoted Catholic.
               The funeral services were conducted by the Reverend Father Smith and dear Francis was laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at ten o’clock Saturday morning amid many beautiful floral offerings.
               When we think of his smiling,
               cheerful face,

               Then of Heaven’s abiding place,
               In the realms of Gain.
               Where no sorrow ever comes,
               That’s to be our home,
               May we meet our darling Francis,
               Nevermore to part.

               For the coming

Collection of Gertrude Christman Kahrig
               Henry Claus, II was born July 18, 1850, near Miltonsburg, Ohio, the son of  Heinrich and Elisabeth CLAUS. He was taught to love his Savior in early youth and was confirmed at the age of 14. On January 26th, 1875, he was united in marriage to Miss Margaret MULLER, which union was blessed with six children - - two sons and four daughters, of whom one son died in infancy.
               Mr. CLAUS was an earnest and faithful member of his church. He also endeavored to keep up the German language in his home, giving his parents the pleasure of hearing their grandchildren converse in their native tongue.
               During the recent conference of pastors in his church he and his wife took active interest in the matter and lent a willing and helping had to the work. On Sunday morning Mr. Claus, with wife and son, journeyed to the church where he found all of his daughters with their families assembled. After greeting them, services were taken during which he, joined by his wife, took communion with the congregation. At the conclusion of the services the entire family assembled on the lawn, partaking of the refreshments which they had provided for in the morning. It was a happy family reunion and everyone felt the joy of being once more united. They did not know that it was to be the last time in this world.
               During the afternoon services he, with a number of others, every place in the church being filled, remained at the entrance, an attentive listener to the word of God which was being proclaimed from the pulpit. Without warning or any alarming symptoms the Lord suddenly called him to his heavenly home. He expired in the parsonage where friends had taken him almost instantly, without regaining his conscience. A stroke of paralysis had stopped the beating of his heart. Mr. Claus died May 20, 1906, at an age of 55 years, 10 months, and 2 days. His remains were interred in the cemetery of the Evangelical Church of Miltonsburg, Ohio, his pastor, Rev. F. A. MEUSCH, conducting the services and the choir rendering appropriate music.
               That Mr. Claus was highly respected and beloved in his community was proven by the large attendance at his funeral, 67 wagons following the remains from his residence, which were joined by a large number before the cemetery was reached.
               Mr. Claus leaves his wife, five children, three brothers, one sister and six grandchildren, besides an unlimited number of friends to mourn his early departure. May we all meet him in heaven.                                                A BROTHER

               Forrest William CHRISTMAN was born in Woodsfield, Ohio, February 25, 1885; he died April 30, 1907, at Grand Junction, Colorado. At his bedside was his brother, Glen CHRISTMAN, and his sister, Celestia CHRISTMAN, with Colorado friends, who watched the departing, and with sorrow, not without hope, wept over broken ties. Forrest was a consistent member of the Grand Junction Presbyterian Church having made profession of salvation soon after reaching Colorado. He was a member of the Bible class and also of the Christian Endeavor Society. He was a member of the “Woodmen of the World,” and also the Women of Woodcraft or Circle, and also the “Carpenter’s Union.” Flowers were sent by those societies and orders and also by other friends of the deceased from his Colorado home.
               The funeral service was conducted from the home of his parents Sunday afternoon May 5th, at 2 o’clock. The Reverend W. Loveridge OLIVER of the Presbyterian Church officiated. The songs used were the special favorites of the deceased - “I’ll Go Where You Want Me to Go,” “Saved by Grace,” and “Face to Face.” The funeral text was from 1st. Corinthians, 15, 57, “But thanks be to God who givith us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.” The body was carried to its resting place by twelve of his young friends - six of his girl friends carried flowers and preceded the casket in the funeral procession which was one of the largest Woodsfield has ever seen. The open grave was surrounded by nearly in not fully a thousand persons, whose sympathy for the living, and honor of the dead was thus demonstrated.
               Words come from Colorado that are more comforting than legal appraisals of large inheritances - What a man is he takes with him. What he has he leaves behind him and yet a paradox is here, for what he takes is more to those behind than what he leaves.
               The Daily Sentinel of April 30 says: “At an early hour this morning Forrest Christman, aged 22 years, a well known young carpenter of this city, died at 535 Grand Avenue where he has been boarding, after several weeks’ illness of typhoid fever. With him when he died were his sister, Miss Celestia CHRISTMAN and brother Glen Christman, both of Woodsfield, Ohio. This evening on Rio Grande No. 5, the remains will be shipped to the old home at Woodsfield where the interment will take place. The brother and sister accompanying the remains east.
               The Daily Sentinel of May 1, says: “The remains of Forrest CHRISTMAN were shipped to the old home in Ohio last night over Rio Grande No. 6. A large number of friends viewed the remains yesterday afternoon at the Rediker home. Thirty members of Book Cliff camp, Woodmen of the World, and 20 members of the loyal Carpenter’s Union escorted the remains from the residence to the union station.”
               The Church news, in Colorado, of May 4th says; “Not only the members of our church but many others have sustained a sad loss in the death of Forrest CHRISTMAN who departed this life on last Tuesday morning at the home of Mrs. REDIKER on Grand Avenue. Mr. Christman was a carpenter by trade and an excellent workman. He was a splendid young man in very particular. He became a Christian several years ago and united with the church under the present pastorate. His brother Casper CHRISTMAN died in this city just a little more than three years ago of typhoid fever. Forrest’s brother Glen CHRISTMAN and sister Celestia CHRISTMAN left with the body last Tuesday evening for Woodsfield, Ohio, the home of their parents, where the body will rest beside that of the brother. The parents, brother, and sister have the sincere sympathy of our people.”
                The Bible class in Grand Junction, Colorado, April 30, 1907. To the Christman family: “Since God in his divine providence has seen fit to call from our midst our loved fellow laborer, Forrest CHRISTMAN, we bow in humble submission to His holy will, and wish thus to endeavor in a weak way to express our heartfelt sympathy to you in this sad hour of bereavement.
               In Forrest, we found a faithful Sabbath school attendant and an excellent Christian young man, whose influence was for the help of the cause of his Savior. In this deep sorrow, that must come to all it is most comforting to us to realize that someday we shall clasp glad hands in the heavenly land to be forever with Jesus. May God’s spirit dwell richly in your hearts to comfort you and heal the wounds of this affliction in the prayer of the young men’s Bible class of the Presbyterian Sabbath school of Grand Junction, of which Forrest was a member. Signed, C. J. BARNETT, teacher; George WHITE; Arthur ALLEN; Bliss BAKER; Luther WHITE; Walter BECKET; Walter LECLERE and Rodney ROBINSON.
               It is sad to die - to break the tie that binds and watch our “plans” blown from our weary fingers, no more seen unless they are the “blue prints” of God’s plans for future building.
               Solemn to die! - but when Christian carpenter goes on to consult with the carpenter Christian - when the apprentice passes on to higher plans and the workman is promoted to the side of the foreman, who shall complain then and say that Romans 8, 28 is fiction?”

Albert Cronin
 
          Albert cronin was born December 17, 1848 and died January 1, 1911, aged 62 years and 15 days.  He was united in marriage with Miss Ellen J. Baker.  To this union were born five children, two sons and three daughters.  Two daughters, Libbie Jane and Mary Ellen preceded him to the home beyond the dark river of death.  The living children are. S. L. Cronin and Mrs J. A. Hines of Woodsfield and M. L. Cronin of Wayne township.  He obeyed the gospel and became a Christian in 1871 under the ministry of Elder Joseph Walters, Since his plighted faith in Jesus the Christ he has fought the good fight and kept the faith, having finished life’s course with courage and honors, he now enjoys the rest of those who die in the Lord.
 
          Few men were better known and more highly respected in the community in which they were born and raised than Brother Albert Cronin was in Wayne township where he was born and spent his life.  He was a farmer and stock raiser and was successful and prosperous; a man of nature judgment, a companion well informed in a general way, which make him an interesting conversationalist.  He was for a number of years prior to his death one of the overseers or Bishops of the Church of Christ at Richfork; so that he will be sadly missed in many relations of life; in the family; as a loving husband and father and counselor; in the community as a neighbor and citizen, in the church as one of the pillars and faithful members.  But what is loss to us is gain to him.
 
          Funeral services were conducted at the Christian house of Worship at Woodsfield, Ohio, by Elder K. W. Harkins Tuesday January 3 in the presence of a large number of relatives and friends and former acquaintances.  At the hour of 1 p.m. after services at the church we went to the old Barber cemetery where a host of neighbors waited in the cold and storm to get the last look at the cold house of clay in which formerly had dwelt their neighbor and brother.
 
          The bereaved family have the sincerest sympathy.

               Death has again entered a family circle and taken away a dear son and brother in the flush of young manhood.
               John W. RUBEL was born near Calais, Ohio, January 23, 1878, and died at the same place, the home of his mother, Mrs. Barbara CRAWFORD, November 13, 1911, being at the time of his death in his 34th. year. His father, Jacob RUBEL, died when John was about five years old, and as he was the baby of the family, he was a great mother’s boy. He went to Colorado few years ago and spent some time there, and again to New Mexico, where he engaged in herding, being overseer of a large ranch, but he returned about a year ago, saying, “Mother, I am going to stay with you as long as I live.” How little either of them realized how short that time was to be. He was stricken with pneumonia and only lived about ten days despite all many loving friends could do for him.
               John improved his education opportunities and received a teacher’s certificate while young. He was an industrious and successful young man, having the respect of his acquaintances to an unusual degree as was shown by the large number attending his funeral. He leaves to mourn his early departure a mother, Mrs. G. W. CRAWFORD; stepfather, G. W. CRAWFORD; two brothers, George and Lewis RUBEL, and three sisters, Mrs. Eva BETTS, Mrs. Mary GOODHART, and Mrs. Rosa BETTS, besides many nephews, nieces and other relatives and friends to whom he was very dear. He united with the M. E. Church at Greely, Colorado while living there, and has since been a loyal member of that body. Reverend. Eastlake of Lewisville assisted by Reverend WISE, conducted the funeral services at the Calais M. E. Church, November 15, after which interment was made in the Calais cemetery.

  Today she sleeps beneath the sod and dew and her labors are over but she will live long in the memory of her  many acquaintances who survive her. Death again has visited us and taken our former neighbor and friend from this world of life to take her place in the silent chamber of the dead. Suddenly and unexpectedly she was called to that home in the great beyond, where we may all look, and gather consolation from our blessed Redeemer, that when our time shall come there will be a glorious reunion in that happy home above where sorrow and parting will be no more. Our earnest prayer is that we all may live so that when our time is brought to a close that we may meet our loved ones in that land where is no more sickness and sorrow, and where we all can enjoy each other's presence through the boundless ages of a never ending eternity. The subject of this sketch, Lucinda Walters, nee Jeffers, was born May 1, 1829 and died Jan. 8, 1912, being at the time of her departure 82 years, 8 months and 7 days old. On Oct. 9 1856, she was married to Albert Walters. To this union were born eight children, six of whom are living, the father and two children having preceded her to the great beyond several years ago. At the age of fourteen she realized that God was her Savious, and joined the M. E. church at Mt. Carrick. After moving to Wilding, W. Va., about thirty years ago, and there being no church of the above named, she united with the M. P. church, of which she remained a faithful member until she was called to her heavenly home above, where all is illuminated by Jesus love. Aunt Cinda, as she was commonly called, was a good woman, loved and respected by all who knew her. She  was a always ready to lend a helping hand to the poor and needy in time of affliction. Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, for they shall see God. The children have our sincere sympathy in their sad bereavement and may they look forward to that blessed land where sad farewells never come and parting is no more. The funeral services were conducted by her pastor, Rev. Warren of the M. P. church of Wilding, W. Va., where her body was laid to await the resurrection.        H. J. Griffith.

  IN LOVING REMEMBRANCE--It is hard to part with dear friends here on earth, but we realize that there will be no separation in heaven, such was that of Cora Elizabeth, daughter of John and Anna Schneider, who was born in Monroe county, Ohio, Jan 11, 1895, and died Feb. 5, 1912, being at the time of her death 17 years and 25 days old. She leaves to mourn her loss a father, mother, two sisters, two brothers, and a host of friends. Cora was a member of the confirmation class at the Evangelical church where she attended regularly to learn the instructions of Christ, and to love our Master as we should, so that some time, sooner or later, she may be permitted to enter our heavenly home of love and rest, with our Savior ever more. Cora was loved by all who knew her, and always met her friends with a loving smile and a happy greeting. Yes, it is hard for us to part with one so young and beautiful. But we realize that the young must die as well as the aged. Again we realize that God has prepared a more beautiful home and if we, the friends of Cora, live the life that God would have us to live sooner or later, we will be permitted to clasp her hand in that beautiful home in heaven where we will never part and dwell with Cora forever. Now as the writer closes these solemn thoughts with a desire that father, mother, sisters and brothers will live such a life that they will meet with Cora and make an unbroken family around the throne of God. The funeral was conducted by Rev. J. H. Overbeck, of the Woodsfield Evangelical church after which the remains were taken to the Neuhart cemetery and tenderly laid to rest.
 
 
Dear Cora, she has left us,
 
  Left us, yes, for ever more,
 
But we hope to meet our loved one
 
  On that bright and happy shore.
 
 
Dear Cora, oh, how we miss you,
 
  More, yes more, than we can tell,
 
But we know you have gone to Jesus,
 
  There forever more to dwell.
 
And when we're called to join you,
 
  In that land where all is love,
 
Then, dear Cora, there'll be no parting
 
  In that beautiful home above.
 
                            Cousin Estella.

Woodsfield, Ohio, March 14, 1912
      Caroline FRANK (nee BRUBACH) the subject of this sketch, was born in Rumbach, Bavaria Province in Germany, May 4th, 1830, and died near Miltonsburg, Monroe county, Ohio at 2:30 O'clock, Tuesday afternoon, February 27, 1912, being at the time of her death 81 years, 9 months and 23 days old.
      She came to this country with her parents at the age of 10 years and their place of settlement was in Summit township, Monroe county.  Miss Caroline BRUBACH was confirmed in the old St. Peter's Evangelical church of near Miltonsburg at an early age and endeavored to live according to that faith until claimed by death.  On the 23rd day of August 1851, Caroline BRUBACH and Oscar FRANK were united in marriage and moved south to Lewisville and to this union were born ten children, 3 of whom preceded the mother to the great beyond and also the husband, Oscar FRANK preceded her June 4, 1890.  Those living to mourn the departure of the soul are seven children, 3 boys and four girls, namely: August FRANK of near Lewisville, Charlie F. FRANK of Shadyside, Oscar J. FRANK of Donora, Pa, Mrs. M. J. YOUNG of Summit township, Mrs. George FEIOCK of Tarantum, Pa., Mrs. E. E. CRONIN of near Lewisville, and Miss Henrietta FRANK who has made her home with her mother during her many years of suffering, and has been the comfort of the aged parent until the last hour.  She also leaves to mourn 47 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren, three brothers, Charlie BRUBACH, Jacob BRUBACH and Henry BRUBACH and a host of friends.  "Blessed are they that die in the Lord."                              Mrs. Frank was a woman in the true sense of the word, strictly honest, temperate and industrious, a kind and indulgent mother, and a good neighbor and useful citizen. She was one of those women whose honor and integrity of principle we could all copy after with profit.
      It was known in the surrounding community that  Mrs. Frank was sick for a long time and suffered untold agony but she never complained. Her sickness was a complication of diseases incident to her advanced age. The family and friends with aid of Dr. C. W. Keysor of Miltonsburg did all that loving hands could do but to no avail. At last the grim reaper death came and put his cold and icy hands on one that was so near and dear to us on February 29, 1912.
      With short services at the house the remains were followed to Lewisville by a large concourse of relatives and friends and her remains were laid to rest in the cemetery adjoining the church.  The funeral services were conducted by Rev. J. H. Overbeck of Woodsfield.  He took for his text John; 9th chapter, 51st verse, which reads:  "Verily, verily, I say unto you, if a man keep my saying he shall never see death."  The services were conducted in English and the church was crowded with eager listeners.  The sermon was very interesting.
      The family has lost a kind and loving mother, the church one of its oldest members and the community one of its best citizens.  Mrs. Frank leaves to mourn three sons, four daughters, three brothers, 47 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and a host of friends but our loss is her eternal gain.  May her soul rest in peace.
      She had been in poor health for several months but no one thought her end so near until a few days previous to her departure when she was stricken very ill and continued to grow worse until God released her of her suffering and called her to her home of eternal happiness.  Our once happy home is now robed to morning and we realize the sorrow of desolation that rest over us when such a dear one is called away but can only say, God's will be done.  The loss of such a dear one shall never be forgotten by us but our only consolations is that mother is in heaven and we live for our God.  We shall meet her in her eternal home never more to part.
 
     When we think of her cheerful face
          in this world of pain.
     Then of heaven's abiding place
          In the realm of gain,
     Where  no sorrow ever come,
          That to be our home.
      May we meet our dear mother
          Never more to part.
 
In the name of the Frank family they take this method to thank one and all who in any way lent a helping hand during the sickness and death of our beloved mother.        A FRIEND"

The groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Christian Cline and wore a suit of brown serge.

Collection of Ralph E. Matz
               We are sorry that we have to pen the sad news of John Almon HINES death which occurred at his home in Lewisville, Ohio last Thursday night, August 28, 1913, of complications of diseases and was buried at St. John’s Middle Church in Summit township, last Saturday morning, it being one of the largest funerals ever held at the Middle church. He was born July 8, 1867. He leaves his devoted wife Elizabeth MATZ HINES, and three sons. He lived on the ridge for several years before moving to Lewisville and will be missed by many of his friends. Farewell, John, only a few short years and we will meet beyond the clouds, beyond the tomb; there is no night, no parting tear are shed. Oh! Grave, where is thy victory, Oh! Death, where is thy sting. May his soul rest in peace.

Saturday evening, June 6, 1915, occurred the death of Alexander Buchanan, aged 76 years. he had been suffering for several weeks from a stroke of paralysis which finally caused his death.
Mr. Buchanan was one of the oldest citizens of Monroe County. He came to this county in 1823. He lived at Lewisville until a few years ago when he bought property here and became a resident of this place. He was widely and favorably known as an honest upright citizen, having established his character early in life and maintaining it to the end. He was a member of the Presbyterian church at the Buchanan charge and a member of the Masonic order at Woodsfield. The funeral service took place Monday; Rev. C. C. B. Duncan, his pastor, assisted by Rev. Alfred Walls and Rev. W. Brucker, conducted the services at his late residence. The remains were placed then in charge of the Masonic brethren, who tenderly bore them to the Buchanan cemetery, where they were buried by the beautiful and impressive ceremony of that order. A wife and several children are left

               Martha A. BRACY, daughter of John C. and Mary E. HENTHORN was  born October 15, 1862, and died January 13, 1916, aged 53 years, 2 months and 28 days. She was married to A. S. BRACY August 29, 1883. To this union were born six children, namely: Walter B., Clarrissa O., Washington D., Addison D., Celesta O. and Dora L. BRACY. She obeyed the gospel when about 15 years of age. She has been fighting off that dreaded disease tuberculosis for about 25 years. And her last sickness of about 13 months has been a heroic struggle, but she had to surrender for the time to that grim monster-death. But being Christ’s she went into the channel house of death, with full confidence and hope of His deliverance when He comes. She was a faithful and good christian wife, a loving mother. By her death Brother Bracy has lost a companion; the children a dear mother, the Church a good member and village a good neighbor. But what is our loss is her eternal gain. Let us all imitate her virtues and profit by her mistakes and make sure to meet her in that “sweet bye and bye” where God will wipe away all tears from all eyes.
               Funeral was conducted at the home by the writer assisted by Elder F. W. Smith. After the services the body was conveyed to the new Woodsfield cemetery where it was nicely laid to rest on January 15 at 2:30 p.m. there to await the coming of the Lord. May God bless the grief-stricken family.
