    John Edward Charnetzky, of near Lewisville, son of Charles and Olive Charnetzky, was born June 4, 1929, and departed this life January 2, 1951, being at the time of his death 21 years, 7 months and 2 days.
    He leaves to mourn his departure his father, Charles Charnetzky; four brothers and one sister, Frank, of Canton, Ohio; Donald, who is serving with the Armed Forces some where in Korea; Richard and Francis, of Waynesburg, Ohio and Mrs. William Burwell, of Waynesburg and a host of other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his mother Mrs. Olive (Feiber) Charnetzky on July 24, 1944.

T. J. Kremer
Source: The Monroe County Beacon Woodsfield, Ohio, January 1951
    Not in recent years, if ever, was news of a death received more as a surprise and shock than that of the death of Judge T. J. Kremer Monday afternoon, January 14, 1951, about 2 o’clock. He had been in his usual health and held a session in Common pleas Court from 9:00 to 9:45 in the forenoon.
    At the conclusion of his work, he began to feel uncomfortable and hurried across the street to his home. Mrs. Kremer summoned medical aid at once and he seemed relieved but a severe heart attack resulted in his death a few hours later. He was the last member of his family.
    Judge Kremer was born at Miltonsburg, Ohio on December 28, 1873, a son of Philip and Mary Widner Kremer. His public school education was supplemented by a course in Law at Ohio State University. He was admitted to the bar on December 7, 1901, and practiced in Woodsfield, both as an individual and as a member of the firm of Matz and Kremer.
    Mr. Kremer served two terms as prosecuting attorney of Monroe County, Ohio from 1911-1915.
    In 1944 he was elected Common Peas Judge for a six-year term and last fall was reelected without opposition and on January 2nd had begun his second term.
    During the last illness and after the death of Judge A. C. McDougal, Judge Kremer served as Acting Probate Judge for several months in addition to his own work.
    On November 28, 1905, Mr. Kremer was united in marriage with Miss Eloise Weisend at Woodsfield where they have lived ever since. They reared a family of ten children all of whom are living. The parents lived to realize the glory of age, that of seeing their children out in the world making good.
    They are Mrs. Byron (Ruth) Gillespie and Mrs. Burris (Eloise) Decker of Woodsfield; Mrs. Robert (Hortense) Arther, of Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio; Mrs. Robert (Margaret) King, of Washington, D. C.; Mrs. John (Betty) Edmonds, of Alexandria, Virginia; Atty. T. J. Kremer, Jr. of Woodsfield; Frederick, of Cuyahoga Falls; William of Skokie, Illinois; George of Arlington, Virginia; and John with the navy in Japan.
    As in most large families, they enjoyed many good times together. The death of the husband and father is the first break in the family circle.
    Judge Kremer was a charter member of the Woodsfield Kiwanis Club and a member of the Monroe County Bar Association.
    He was companionable and friendly in disposition, realistic in his legal and judicial approaches to problems and sought to know the facts on which to base actions and decisions.
    Several years ago, he was actively engaged in the oil business as a producer and operator both in West Virginia and Ohio, and never lost interest on the development of this natural resource of his country.
    Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at the Schumacher funeral home in charge of the Reverend Robert Brown, of St. Sylvester’s Catholic Church and were largely attended. Interment was made in Oaklawn cemetery, Woodsfield.

    One daughter and one son preceded him in death. Also preceding him in death were four brothers and three sisters. He has two brothers still living, Fred Christman, of Lewisville, Route 1, and Charles Christman, of Lewisville, Route 1.
    During the last year when Mr. Christman was unable to go to town for supplies his neighbors and friends helped him out considerably, especially did he depend upon the faithful assistance of Mr. and Mrs. Floyd Weber, his closest neighbor.
    All of those who knew Mr. Christman and visited him remember his patience and faith in all of his conversation. Although he was unable to be an active member of the Church during these past years, he remained a faithful Christian thru his personal devotions and the inspiration from the Bible and radio worship services. This past fall he wrote a request in a strong hand, influenced some by the German script. The request was for the sacrament of communion. After participation in Communion with his wife, he again received the strength of the love and communion with his Master Christ. May God bless all of those who remain faithful unto death.
    The family and relatives wish to express their sincere appreciation and thanks for all of the kindness and expressions of neighborliness that have been shown toward Mr. William Christman and his family.

Article published by the Monroe County Historical Society in 1984 Louis E. Matz
     In seeking a lawyer the would-be client invariably desires to place his business with an attorney who knows the law, is well versed in decisions and can manange a case in all its details to the very best advantage. Among the several attorneys of this class in Woodsfield will be found mr. L.E. Matz, than who there is no more prompt, careful and painstaking attorney in the county. All business entrusted to him is attended to in an entirely satisfactory manner. Like many other good men, Mr. Matz came from the farm and the teacher's desk.
    Born on his father's farm near Lewisville, Ohio, February 14th, 1866. Thus located his early educational advantages were limited to the common country schools; but his ambition to secure an education caused him to so improve his opportunities that at an early age he was prepared to teach. In this profession he had little or no trouble in securing some of the best schools in the vicinity of his home. By labor on the farm and in the school room he managed to procure funds for a better education. A few years after entering the teaching profession, he took up the study of law, to which he devoted as much time as he could spare from his other work. To complete his common education he took a college course at Lebanon, Warren County, Ohio, after which he came to Woodsfield in January 1892, and served as assistant probate law at this place. Shortly after opening an office at this place he formed a partnership with C.S. Buchanan, which continued for about two years. In July, 1895, he formed a partnership with Hon. James Watson; but as this partnership no longer exists, he is doing business for himself, and will take charge of cases in adjoining counties as well as at home. Mr. Matz speaks German as well as English, and for this reason alone his services are preferred in consultation and actual practice by many of our older German citizens.
    Office: In lower front room of Driggs House on Main Street.
    Residence: A fine new structure in the northern part of town in Woodsfield.
    L.E. Matz, died Sunday afternoon, August 17, 1952, age 86, in Bellaire Hospital.  Bauer and Turner Funeral Home was in charge of arrangements.  Masonic services were held on Tuesday evening at 7:30 at Lewis's home on Maple Avenue.  Services were held in the home Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 with additional services at two o'clock at St. Paul's Evangelical and Reformed Church.  Rev. H.J. Kopke was the officiate and the Interment was in Oaklawn Cemetery.
   Three sons were born to Lewis and Anna Egger Matz; Capel, Edmund and Wallace.

     On Sunday , August 17, 1952, Attorney Lewis E. Matz died shortly after 1:00 o'clock at the Bellaire City Hospital where he had been a patient for a few days for observation and treatment.  While he had been in more or less retirement for several months, the "drive'' that characterized  his long and useful life kept him active for a man of more than four-score years.
     Mrs. Matz was born on a farm near Lewisville, February 14, 1886, a son of Ludwig and Christina Matz.
     He attended the public school in his community and determined to develop his mental as well as physical powers. He became a clear, forceful thinker, which helped make him successful in his chosen profession of the Law, as well as aided him in solution of many business and community problems to which he gave unselfishly of his time, money and energy.
     He taught in Monroe County rural schools before entering Hobarth College in Cincinnati. As was the practice in his day, he "read Law" with a local firm, and was admitted to the bar in 1892. As an individual attorney, as a member of the firms of Matz and Kremer, and Matz and Matz, he practiced in local district and federal courts for nearly sixty years. He was a member of the Monroe County and Ohio State Bar Association.
     Mr. Matz was confirmed in the Evangelical faith and was faithful to his church obligations as was his unfailing practice in all relationships. For several years he served on the official board of his church, and was unusually active faithful attendant at worship services.
    Fraternally, Mr. Matz was a member of Monroe Lodge No.189 Free and Accepted Masons, becoming an entered apprentice on February 25, 1921. He was also a life member of the Zanesville Niks Lodge and a charter member of the Woodsfield Kiwanis Club. He served a term as president and was unusually active on its various committees, especially Public Affairs.
    His service as City Soliciter of Woodsfield, his interest in the progress and development of his community, especally in better roads, backed by his thoroughness in whatever he undertook, commanded attention and respect of those to whom he appealed and in his years of retirement he could survey with satisfaction many results of his efforts.
    On May 24, 1894, he was united in marriage with Miss Anna B. Egger, by Reverend J.R. Mueller, and they made their home in Woodsfield. She preceded him in death in 1936 as also did three brothers, Philip Christian and Herman; three sisters, Mrs. Chris (Louise) Leibfarth, Mrs. Fred (Amelia) Neuhart and Mrs. Amiel (Mary) Faber.

(Lena) Christman, Mrs. Jacob (Rachel) Christman; Mrs. John (Elizabeth) Hines, of Lewisville; and Mrs. Elma Legg, of Massillon. There are also five grandchildren.
    Monroe Lodge 189 Free and Accepted Masons conducted ceremonial rites of the order at the late residence Tuesday evening at 7:30.
    Brief funeral services in charge of his pastor, Reverend Homer J. Kopke were held at the home Wednesday at 1:30 followed by final rites at St. Paul's Church at 2:00 o'clock.  Interment was in Oaklawn Cemetery.

        George S. Harrison was born January 15, 1865 and departed this life March 26, 1953, being at the time of his death 88 years, 2 months and 11 days of age.

        He was a son of the late Martin and Katherine Harrison.  His wife, Minnie Marty Harrison, preceded him in death June 8,1940.

        Surviving are two children, Mrs. Mabel Heslep, of Clarington Route 1, and Harry Harrison, of Wheeling; one sister, Mrs. Ruth Mozena; five grandsons and one granddaughter; five great granddaughters and one great grandson, with many other relatives and friends.

        One of his grandsons, Pvt. John Heslep, is serving his country in the U.S. Army in Japan.  He is of the same lineage as the two late President Harrisons.  His entire life has been spent in this community.  He was a member of the United Brethern Church in Christ.

        "Pappy" as he was affectionately called by his family and friends, was a friend to all he came in contact with.  From his childhood to his last hour he always manifested a sunny character.  His last years were spent listening to his radio of which he got all the church services he was able to dial.  His great ambition was to drink deeper from the fountain of God's love, so when his master called, "It is enough, come up higher," he could sing with the Angels his favorite hymns, "On Jordan's Stormy Banks," and "Home At Last."

        The events of his entire life can best be eulogized in these few words of the poet.

                He lived in the house by the side of the road,

                And was a friend of man.

                Then shall I reach that happy  place

                And be forever blest,

                Then shall I see my Father's face

                And in His bosom rest.

Charles E. Christman, 80, the son of Godfrey and Katherine Bauman Christman, was born on  October 7, 1874, on his parents’ farm near Wills Creek, West of Monroefield, Ohio. He departed this life January 5, 1955, at the age of eighty years and three months. Born into a large family he was the second youngest of ten children, which included three girls and seven boys. 

His parents who were among the first settlers of this community, were from Germany with a background of strong Christian faith. He received the sacrament of Baptism at St. John’s Evangelical Church and later received the vows of Church membership himself by the rite of Confirmation at the age of fifteen. From that time forward he remained a faithful and loyal member of St. John’s Evangelical and Reformed Church throughout his lifetime. In his Church he found the strength and guidance he needed by regular attendance and participation in the sacrament of Holy Communion. He received his last Holy Communion ten days before God called him to his heavenly home.

On October 15, 1898, he was united in marriage to Miss Laura Melinda Baker. To this happy union were born five sons. Laura died December 5, 1919, from typhoid fever, aged 45 years. Three sons, Harley, Herbert, and Clesson Christman were taken early in life. Harley died September 6, 1904, and; Herbert died February 4, 1903 and Clesson died in 1934.

The two living sons are Freeman Christman, of Monroefield and Harvey Christman of Woodsfield. The last two weeks of Mrs. Christman’s life were spent at the home of his son, Freeman where with his wife, brother Harvey, the grandchildren and neighbors, he was given tender and loving care day and night.

After the untimely death of his first wife, he was united in marriage to Emma Black on November 26, 1924. She too preceded him in death on June 19, 1946, aged 83 years, leaving one stepson, Stephen Black, now living in Zanesville, Ohio.

Mr. Christman has three grandchildren, Eldon and Ruth Christman, of Lewisville, Rural Route, and Richard Christman, of Columbus, Ohio. Also there are five great grandchildren who have brought much additional joy to him in these past years. Having a host of relatives, he is honored with having one of the largest relationships in this country, all descendants of the first
pioneer settlers.

These early settlers built up their homes near springs where Mr. Christman built his home. Here on his beautiful farm located west of Barnhart Ridge Road he lived alone during these past years. On his farm he found much joy in tending the cattle and chickens, watching the crops grow and be harvested by his son and grandsons.

Burial was made in the St. John’s Middle Church cemetery, near Lewisville.

David Latta, 75, Officer of Hercules, Succumbs -- Was Consulting Engineer

     David W. Latta, vice president of Hercules Motors Corp. since April 17, 1947, and associated with the corporation for the last 38 years, suffered a fatal heart attack today at 1 a.m. in his home at 2200 Broad ave NW. [Canton, Ohio]  He was 75.  Although he had been under treatment for a heart ailment, his death was unexpected.  He had retired from active service with Hercules July 1 but retained his corporate office.  Mr. Latta was probably better known in engineering circles outside of Canton than in the city which he had called home for more than half a century.  With the exception of the first two years in his association with Hercules his work as sales engineer took him to the nation's industrial centers.  For many years he considered Chicago his center of activity and maintained headquarters there.

     Funeral rites will be Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in the Welch funeral home and burial will be in Melscheimer Cemetery.  Calling hours . The Rev. George E. Parkinson will officiate.

     Mr. Latta was a son of the late John and Mary Jane Latta and was born in Monroe County.  He attended grade and high school there and then enrolled at Cornell University from where he was graduated in 1903.  He was a long-time member of the Society of Automotive Engineers.  He came to Canton the year following his graduation and became associated with the Kuehn Wilson Co. which later became the State Electric Co. and remained with that concern until joining Hercules in 1918.

Mr. Latta had a number of hobbies, chief of which were gardening and photography.  Probably one of his proudest possessions was an Ordinance Distinguished Service Award, presented to him on July 20, 1944, as a member of the Coordinating Research Council in recognition of  "outstanding and meritorious engineering advisory service" to the U.S. armed forces.

     Mr. Latta is survived by his widow, Mrs. Effie J. Latta of the home; four sons, Elton, Zelvon, Donald and Vernon Latta of Canton; a daughter, Miss Jan Edith Latta of the home and three grandchildren.

     Honorary pallbearers at the rites will include Charles Balough, John C. Keplinger, John D. Cook, A.R. Miller, C. O. Jewell, Wesley Schaub and O.D. Treiber all of Canton, and Homer Schaub of East Sparta.  Active pallbearers will be William Keplinger of Chicago and the following from Canton:  Elmer C. Ide, F.H. Geisler, L.G. Downey, William D. Butcher, George W. LaSalle, Dr. E.A.V. Horiak and D.L. Buchanan.  [David Wilson Latta, died 25 July 1956]

When I have crossed the bar,
     Sunset and evening star
       And one clear call for me!
And may there be no moaning at the bar
    When I put out to sea,
But such a tide as moving seems asleep,
    Too full for sound and foam,
When that which drew from out the boundless deep
    Turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell.
    And after that the dark!
And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark.
For tho' from out our bourne of Time and Place
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face.

Samuel Danford Leach

Source:  The Barnesville [Ohio] Whetstone; Thursday, 24 Sep 1964

        A Barnesville resident, a World War II veteran, died in Barnesville Hospital Friday morning, following a horrible accident which occurred at his home 331 Harrison Ave, Thursday evening about 6:30.

         Samuel Danford Leach, 38, was a victim of a horse which he had mounted, crushing him inwardly when it reared over backwards and then rolled on him. It seemed some of the injury was caused by the saddle horn when it was pushed into his chest.

         The big spotted pony belonged to his 13-year daughter, Joyce Leach and had been purchased for her about two weeks before the accident.

         Several people gathered around the accident scene in the Leach backyard when they heard screams of children when he was crushed by the animal. It could be readily seen that he was seriously hurt and Mrs. Newton Ferguson, RN, at the Barnesville Hospital who lives nearby, rushed to the scene and gave mouth-to-mouth respiration, and also accompanied him to the hospital when the ambulance arrived. Surgeons worked on the victim in a battle to save his life, but due to inward injuries, surgery was apparently of no avail.

         A veteran of World War II and a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars, he was born in Noble County, June 10, 1926, a son of Barney and Grace Spence Leach.

         Surviving are his wife, Sarabell Montgomery Leach; two daughters, Joyce Ann and Gay Lynn, both of the home; three sisters, Mrs. Helen Wehr, Mrs. Ethel Carpenter, both of Barnesville, and Mrs. Cledith Carpenter of Calais; a brother, Jack Leach, of Barnesville, and his parents.

         Friends were received after 1 P.M. Saturday at the Campbell Funeral Home, where services were held Sunday at 2:00 P.M., the Rev. R.E. Swinehart officiating. Burial was made in Crestview Cemetery.

All of Jones' pitching was in the American League.  Jones, in addition to Cleveland, pitched for New York, St. Louis, Washington, Chicago, and Boston. He had a lifetime record in the majors of 228-216, including 36 shutouts, and a no-hitter on Sept. 4, 1923, defeating the old Philadelphia Athletics 2-0.
   While Jones' career was impressive, it also was marked by disappointment.  For one thing, he pitched in six games in four World series without winning a game. While with the Yankees in the 1923 World Series, he tossed a four-hitter at the New York Giants only to lose 1-0 on a fourth-inning home run by Casey Stengel.
   Jones set two records of dubious distinction for the Yankees in 1925. He gave up 127 earned runs that year while posting a record of 15-21. The earned run mark and the 21 games lost stand today in the Yankees' record books.  Many athletes have used the nickname Sad Sam, but Paul Turner of Woodsfield, a long-time friend, said Jones was the original. "But he wasn't sad. There wasn't anything sad about him.... I don't know where he got the nickname," said Turner.
  The family did not disclose the cause of death.  In addition to the widow, Jones is survived by two sons, Paul, of Erie, PA, and George, of New York City. Jones became the president of the Woodsfield Savings and Loan Co. after returning to his home town 19 years ago.  Funeral services will be held here Saturday.

Deputy Brown Killed; Assailant Shoots Self

AZ Range News - Dec 11, 1969

Cochise County Deputy Sheriff Leroy Brown, 38, was shot to death Saturday and his assailant later died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Sheriff Jim Willson said Brown was shot two or three times by Andres Griego, 20 of Bowie, at a restaurant. Griego was taken to Tucson Medical Center following the slaying, where he was pronounced dead from a gunshot wound to the head. His body was found in a Bowie school yard.

Willson said Griego has threatened Brown and and two other deputies following his arrest in August for disturbing the peace. Griego spent 30 days in jail on the charge, and after being released, went to Superior, AZ. Willson said Griego apparently did not return to Bowie until Saturday.

The Sheriff said Griego entered a restaurant where Brown was, apparently after seeing the deputy sheriff there.

After entering the restaurant, Willson said, Griego ordered a cup of "hot, hot coffee," Griego went over to the table where Brown and another man was seated and threw the coffee in the deputy's face. As Brown got up, Willson said, Griego pulled a .25 caliber automatic from a paper bag and shot the deputy in the face. Willson said Griego shot Brown at least one more time, and may have fired a third shot.

Following the shooting, the Sheriff said Griego fled the restaurant and ran some two blocks to the city's high school where he shot himself.

A coroner's inquest held after the shooting confirmed that the deputy had been shot and killed by Griego.

Deputy Brown is survived by his wife, Clarene “Jackie” Brown, Bowie; two sons: Jeff, 8; and Todd, 4; his father, J.E. Brown, Westville, OK; and his mother, Mrs. Pearl (Jones) Brown, Dos Cabezas. Also survived by sisters Jean, Joann, Sandra, and Janie.

Old-time members of the National Genealogical Society will remember a tall, bald man in a Navy officer's uniform, whose smile and hearty handshake exuded warmth and cordiality, and whose booming voice infected his hearers with the same enthusiasm for genealogical research and for extending the spheres of the influence of the society.

This was Ben F. Dixon, a native of Kahoka, Missouri, and a long time resident of San Diego, California.  It is with deep regret that we received word of his death at his home, 6008 Arosa Street, San Diego, on Saturday, 27 June 1970, at the age of 78.

In his adopted city he was Curator of the Junipero Serra Museum in Presido Park, 1949-1955, and for 11 years taught history at Adult Evening School.  He started the Walking Tours of the Old Town.  He was a member of the Squibob Chapter of E Clampas Vitus, an organization founded in the Gold Rush Days by men who like to mix history and fun.  In 1968 on a visit to Washington (D C), he addressed the Society on the historical and genealogical work being accomplished in San Diego.

His publications included "Contributions of Haiti to the Independence of the United States, 1776-1826" (1950), which won an award from the Haitian Government; "Diario, The Journal of Padre Serra " (editor; 2nd edition, 1967), and with Mrs Dixon, "Five Generations of American Dwelles" (1960).

The Society extends its deepest sympathy to his widow, the former Alice L. Dwelle; his sons Dale and John and his daughter Mary Alice   Six grand children also survive.  Burial was in Greenwood Mausoleum.           Milton Rubincam.
