  • Anna Catharine Zoellner Obituary, died February 13, 1900 in Marysville, Ohio (Newspaper obituary from a Marysville, Ohio paper)
    Submitted by
    Susan Kellar Ratcliffe of Delaware, Ohio

    Background: Anna Catharine nee Buebenheim Zoellner
    Born: May 1, 1814 in Kurchessen Cassill, Germany
    Married: Henry Zoellner
    Died: February 13, 1900 in Marysville, Ohio
    Buried: Oakdale Cemetery, Marysville, Ohio

    An Aged Resident Dead

    One of the very oldest citizens of our city passed away Tuesday morning at 1 o'clock. Her death was very sudden and unexpected. When in the forepart of the winter she lay seriously sick with pneumonia and heart trouble, no one expected the aged lady to rally, the disease combined with old age seemingly making all recovery impossible. Contrary to the predictions of all, she rallied and once more regained her strength, until on Tuesday morning after a brief attack of her old trouble she fell peacefully asleep.
    Anna Catharine Zoellner was born May 1st, 1814, in Halsdorf, Hessia, Germany, where she was reared and educated, and where she lived most of her life. There she was married to Henry Zoellner and there all her children, ten in number, were born. In 1869, she and family emigrated for this country and settled in Hamilton, Ohio, two years later her husband died and left her to continue her pilgrimage alone. At Hamilton three of her children died. In 1880 she came to this city and lived with her daughter, Matilda Wagner, on South Chestnut Street. A little more than a year ago her daughter, Mary Kandel, died, whom she now joins in the world beyond the grave.
    Mrs. Zoellner was a very robust and strong person, physically, far above the average. She was during her whole life a constant and consistent member of the Evangelical Lutheran Church and lived in Christian peace and harmony with all around her, doing many kind acts of Christian benevolence and mercy quietly and unostentatiously. For years she has been resignedly awaiting her end, and now at last she calmly passed over with sure hope of a glorious resurrection and a never-ending life of unalloyed happiness in her Savior's kingdom of glory.
    She attained the high old age of 85 years, 9 months and 12 days, and leaves six children; Valentine Zoellner, Mrs. John Coleman, Mrs. Horst and Mrs. Wagner, of this city; Mrs. George Yeachle, of Hamilton; also two step-sons, one at Hamilton, the other at Sandusky. She leaves also a sister in St. Paul, Minn., 28 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
    The funeral services take place on Friday as follows; 1:30 at the house, 2 at the church (sun time) and will be conducted by the pastor, F.W. Abicht. All friends are cordially invited to attend.

    WIDELY-KNOWN EXCELLO RESIDENT DIES MONDAY
    Andrew J. McGlaughlin, 91, Operated Store in Village Until Recent Illness

    Andrew J. McGlaughlin, proprieteor of a general store on Route Four at Excello, that was as familiar to the life of that village as the man who conducted it, died Monday morning. An illness of six weeks from pneumonia was fatal to the quaint character who was well past 91 years old and was in excellent health until the fatal siege.
    Born in Amanda, he often said he knew every inch of the ground in that vicinity and evry person who lived in the village during his long lifetime. By young and old, he was hailed as "Andy", and his personality made his store one of the popular spots in the village.
    It was only in the last 16 years that he was a storekeeper, spending most of his life in the papermaking trade at the Harding Mill. In 1924, when he was boss finisher of the mill, he decided to retire, but he soon became restless and within the year had opened his store along the highway across from the paper mill and at the foot of the hill where he lived 65 years. The McGlaughlin homestead, on top of the ridge overlooking Dicks Creek, has been a landmark for several generations.
    Named Andrew Jackson, after one of America's Democratic patriots, he was a staunch Democrat and enjoyed many an argument over politics. Reared in the Methodist Church, of Amanda, he was one of its faithful members.
    Survivors are three daughters, Miss Anna McGlaughlin, who lived with her father, Mrs. Mary O'Donnell, of Franklin, and Mrs. Laura Youker of Grand Rapids, Michigan, eight sons Calvin, Truman and Austin McGlaughlin of Dayton; Hiram, Henry, Ebenezer, Perce and Richard McGlaughlin of this city; 45 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, and one sister, Mrs. James Craig, of Excello.
    Arrangements for the funeral are incomplete.

    OLDEST RESIDENT
    After Ninety-Seven Years Mrs. Amanda Beauchamp Gives Up Life's Struggle
    She was the oldest resident in Butler County

    After a useful career spanning almost a century, Amanda Beauchamp, died at her home in this city today at 2 o'clock. Mrs. Beauchamp was 97 years of age and has been a resident of Middletown for 80 years. She was the widow of Samuel Beauchamp. Her maiden name was Amanda Loring.
    She came here a sprightly young lady and has lived to see Middletown grow from a struggling hamlet on the banks of the turbid Miami to a flourishing and populous city.
    Those who knew her in her early days have long been laid in their graves. The incidents of other years clustered around memor's wreath as she traveled the last span of life, and the contrasts between then and now caused her to realize that the world was indeed progressing.
    For ten years she has been alone in her home cared for by Mrs. Myers. She lived to bury all her children save Mrs. Meserole, who resides in New York.

    ELOQUENCE OF COL. BEAUCHAMP SILENCED
    LIFE'S END CAME FOR HIM IN MILFORD FRIDAY NIGHT

    Fatally Stricken While on Lecture Tour-His Wonderful Life Which was a Message of Sunshine

    Everything possible for the cheer and comfort of Colonel Beauchamp had been done by his Hamilton friends. The Rotary Club, of which he was an enthusiastic and honored member, had sent a comforting message and cheering flowers; Hamilton Lodge, No. 83, B.P.O. Elks, the only fraternal organization of which he was a member, had sent his messages and its flowers and ordered that nothing had been left undone for his care and comfort. Friends had sent their messages, and if the final hours were spent in consciousness, he knew that the heart of Hamilton had gone out to him in his fatal illness.

    His Wonderful Life

    Lou J. Beauchamp was a native of Cincinnati. He was born there on January 14, 1851, and received his early education in the public schools of that city. As a boy he came to Hamilton with his parents, and his education was finished in the public schools of this city. But at the age of only 14 years, Col. Beauchamp, took up the work of the printing trade in the office of a Hamilton weekly newspaper. His success was instantaneous, and before he had attained his majority, Col. Beauchamp was the telegraph and news editor of the Cincinnati Daily Star, later merged with the Cincinnati Times as the Cincinnati Times-Star. For five years he was connected to several newspapers, but then an unfortunate episode in his life occurred -- an episode which he never sought to conceal -- he became the victim of liquor. But in the meantime, Col. Beauchamp had married Miss Mellie Gardner of Hamilton, becoming his wife, and through her devotion and faith he was won back to a life of usefulness. It was then that he entered upon his brilliant career which ended only when God called him from life to his eternal reward. At first Col. Beauchamp became a temperance lecturer and in nineteen years traveled over 900,000 miles in the United States, British America, Mexico, Great Britain and Europe, always accompanied by his wife, presenting the message of total abstinence.
    As the result of Col. Beauchamp's trip to Europe he wrote his first book, "What the Duchess and I saw in Europe", written in his quaint style, and which attained a large sale.
    From the start, Col. Beauchamp became one of the pioneers of the chautauqua movement in the United States, and as this movement increased in scope and influence, Col. Beauchamp became a leading factor in the progress. The organization which sprang up in support of the chautaqua movement elicited the earnest support of Col. Beauchamp, and his counsel was often sought.......(additional page of information continues)

    CHARLES E. DENNY, LEADER IN CITY'S PROGRESS, DEAD; FUNERAL SERVICES MONDAY

    Charles E. Denny, 77, native of this city and a member of one of the pioneer families of the county, died at his home here, 220 South Main Street, yesterday, after a short illness.
    Since his early childhood Mr. Denny was a worker and leader in business, financial, civic and fraternal affairs of this section and served his city in public office and as an outstanding citizen. He was actively interested in the management of the Denny Lumber Company, on First Avenue, until a few days before his death and was not considered in critical condition until a short time before the end came.
    Mr. Denny was born November 19, 1852, the son of John and Peggy Denny, in the old home of the family, then standing on the ground now occupied by the Middletown Public Library.
    In November, 1877, he married Augusta Wampler, daughter of the late Dr. and Mrs. G.A. Wampler. To this union the following children, all whom survive him were born: Charles Wampler Denny, president of the Barkelew Electric Company; Mrs. John B. Tytus, Mark E. Denny, and George E. Denny. The last sons were associated with their father for years in the conduct of the Denny Lumber Company.
    Mr. Denny's first connection in Middletown was a clerical one with W.B. Ogelsby Paper company. Later he entered the service of the Oglesby-Barnitz Bank and remained with that institution for 15 years, most of that time as cashier. In 1855 (sic), Mr. Denny and George C. Jacoby, now deceased , founded the lumber company which was Mr. Denny's vital interest until his death. Some years later Mr. Denny purchased his partner's interest and later his sons became members of the firm.
    In his earlier career Mr. Denny was active as an officer of the Middletown Gas and Electric Company. He served the community as a member of the city council in earlier years and also served for a lengthy period as a clerk and president of the Middletown Cemetery Association. He held the latter position at the time of his death.
    Mr. Denny had been a Mason for more than half a century. It was with keen regret that he was unable to attend a meeting of the local lodge last week, when six Middletown men who had been Masons for fifty years or more, were presented medals by Ohio Masonry. Mr. Denny's medal was taken to him at his home, where he was ill. He was a member of the board of trustees under whose administration the present Masonic temple was constructed here.
    In his later life Mr. Denny gave the management of his affairs to others to some extent and used what time he felt he could spare in travelling. Three weeks ago he returned from a trip to the Pacific coast and other points.
    Funeral services will be held at the home at 2 o'clock Monday afternoon. Interment will follow in Woodside Cemetery.

    May 11, 1909

    R. V. DENNY
    Old and Honored Resident of This City Passes Away

    Death claimed another of our old and honored citizens when R. V. Denny, assistant superintendant of the southern division of the Miami and Erie answered the call to that better world this morning at his home on East Second Street, just as the sun was peeping over the Eastern hills.
    The deceased was born, reared and educated in this city where he spent his whole life, he being identified with the Miami and Erie canal for the past 50 years, and was known and respected by a majority of the people of this city.
    Mr. Denny was a loving husband, a kind and indulgent father. His home was his happiness and he was with his family every possible moment he could. He was a splendid neighbor, a good citizen and a booster for Middletown at all times.
    He has been ailing for some time. His strong and rugged constitution always bore him well in hand. He knew little sickness and never complained. When the time came for him to depart he was ready and passed away as quietly as though he was going into a sound sleep.
    Four daughters are left to mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent father.
    The funeral services will be held from the residence on East Second Street at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon. The interment will be made in the family lot in the Middletown Cemetery.

    Middletown, Ohio, January 11, 1882

    Miss Annie Denny, living east of the canal, died of consumption on last Monday morning. Funeral services were conducted at the late home of the deceased the day following, by the Rev. Warrington, and the remains interred in the Middletown Cemetery. Miss Denny was beloved and esteemed by all with whom she mingled in life, and their many friends deeply sympathize with the family in this their great sorrow. She was twenty years of age.
