Obituary

Muskegon News & Reporter, Oct 18, 1870  DROWNED - James Eagan, a sailor on the scow Selma was drowned at Port Sherman last Thursday.  The scow was being towed out when it was discovered that she was running afoul the dock, and Eagan and another man ran aft to see what was wrong.  The deck being slippery and without any railing by which to check his speed, Eagan ran off into the river.  All efforts to save him proved ineffectual.--  The body was recovered and an inquest held by Justice Weller Friday, and his remains interred in the city cemetery.

Death of the Postmaster at Dalton.  Tidings of the death of Charles W. Engle, postmaster of Dalton, which occurred  last night, reached the city this morning.  Mr. Engle was seemingly all right at 11 o’clock last night, but when his  wife called him this morning he did not respond and was found to be dead, death having evidently been caused by  apoplexy or some disease of that nature.  Mr. Engle was about 61 years old, and leaves a wife and three children.   He was appointed postmaster during President Cleveland’s first term.  He also ran a small grocery store and had  lived in Dalton about 16 years, coming there from Burr Oaks.  Coroner N.

ERXLEBEN, Charles H.

Obituary

Muskegon Chronicle, Muskegon, Michigan, Thursday, September 4, 1958, page 1

Death Ends Tragic Life of Young Father   Charles H. Erxleben, a man whose short life knew the horror of modern warfare, and the  tragedy of losing three of his children in the holocaust of his home, died at Muskegon Osteopathic Hospital yesterday after a short  illness.  Mr. Erxleben, 40, who made his home at 1387 Seventh street, died nine days after being stricken with a coronary attack at his  home.  Born in Fostoria, Ohio, Sept 7, 1917, Mr. Erxleben came to Muskegon as a boy and had made his home here the last 37 years.   And it was here that he entered service in July of 1942.  He trained at Ft. McClellan, Ala., Ft. Devens, Mass., Camp Pickett, Va. And  Pine Camp, N.Y. before going overseas.  Then, as an infantryman, he saw action in Africa, in Sicily and in Italy, earning the Combat  Infantryman’s Badge in action against the enemy. Charles returned to Muskegon where he married the former Helen A. White, May  12, 1945.  The couple made their home in Muskegon Township, on Mill Iron road, and it was there the night of July 29, 1952, that  tragedy struck.  Fire enveloped the small three-room home.  Heroic efforts of neighbor children saved three of the Erxleben children  but three others, Charles, Jr., John and Lois, died in the flames.  It was one of the worst fire tragedies the community has known.    Employed in the construction field for a time, Mr. Erxleben has been a packer at Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. the past six years.   He was a graduate of the Muskegon school system and a member of the Central Assembly of God Church.  Surviving are his wife;  three daughters, Karen, Marilyn and Virginia, and three sons, Thomas, Richard and William all at home; his mother and stepfather,  Mr. and Mrs. Hans Nelson of Muskegon, and four brothers, Arthur in California and Homer, Robert and Walter all of Muskegon.

NO INQUEST CALLED IN ERXLEBEN DEATH  Coroner Tiede Clock has decided  that there will be no inquest in the death of Otto H. Erxleben, 45 years old, 38 Berry  avenue, East Muskegon whose body was found in the woods in Laketon township  Saturday.  Every indication is that the man killed himself about three weeks ago when he  disappeared from home.  The body was found by George Russell, 970 Jefferson street, an  oil worker.  A divorce suit had been started by Erxleben’s wife and he told her he was  going to kill himself.  He purchased a new gun and apparently pulled the trigger with his  toe, one shoe having been removed.  The man leaves five small children.
