OBITUARY
HON. AMOS CLARK
...Died at Xenia Yesterday Morning--Well Known and Highly Respected Throughout County,.
Yesterday morning Auditor James S. Clark received a telegram that his father, Hon. Amos Clark had died at 5:45 o'clock at Xenia, O., at the home of his daughter, Mrs. B. L. Lackey. Mr. Clark had been in failing health for some time and spent the past winter in Florida in the hope of being benefited by a change of climate. He returned to Xenia about two months ago and since then failed rapidly. He was born in Westport, Me., December 8th, 1939, and was 72 years, 5 months and 26 days old. For a short time he was a sailor and when 19 years of age came to this country from New Orleans and located near Chambersburg. In connection with his brother Joshua he operated a store and wharfboat at that place for a number of years. June 2, 1865 he was united in marriage with Miss Fannie Riggs and they became the parents of three children, Auditor James S. Clark, Mrs. R. B. Ewing, of Carlisle, O., and Mrs. B. L. Lackey, of Xenia, all of whom survive. In October, 1881, several years after the death of his first wife, he was united in marriage with Mrs. Sallie Ingels Harper, who survives him.
...For over twenty-five years he was engaged in the apple and produce business with the firm of Graham, Clark and Riggs and was very successful. Until two years ago he owned one of the best farms on the Ohio River and was always a progressive, wideawake farmer.
...He served three years in the Civil War in the 36th O. V. I. and was promoted to Second Lieutenant for meritorious service. He was also a member of the State Board of Equalization at one time and for years was prominent and active in Republican politics.
...Mr. Clark could fitly be described as a gentleman of the old school and as a man of sterling worth. He was widely known in this section of the country and highly respected. His relatives have the sincere sympathy of many friends, who are grieved to learn of their loss.
...His body will arrive here on the H. V. Thursday evening and will be taken in charge by Wetherholt. The funeral services will be held at the residence of James S. Clark Friday morning and will be conducted by Rev. J. R. Fields.
...Three brothers also survive, J. M. Clark of Topeka, Kas., Henry B. of Girard, Kas. and Augustus of Winterport, Me. [Source: Original newspaper clipping; Gallipolis Journal June 5, 1912]

OBITUARY
Amos Clark Dead
Prominent Gallia County Citizen Passed Away at Xenia
...Auditor James S. Clark received the sad news, this morning, that had been foreshadowed in these columns, of the death of his father at the home of his daughter Mrs. Ada Lackey of Xenia, O. It is thought that the body will reach here Wednesday evening, when Undertaker Wetherholt will have charge, but further details of the funeral and burial cannot be given at this time, being undetermined.
...Mr. Clark was born at Winterport, Maine, 72 years ago the 8th of last December. He came to New Orleans when only 19 years of age, and followed the river up to Chambersburg, and later he and brother Joshua went to merchandizing together and running the wharfboat there. Later on he bought a farm and became a farmer prominent as such and later on formed a partnership with Capt. William Graham and Jacob Riggs, under the firm name of Graham, Clark & Riggs, and boated produce south for perhaps 30 years and bought up large quantities of fruit, running into immense transactions some years. A year ago he sold his farm to John Sanders and has done nothing since but try to recuperate his failing health which began several years ago, but in the last two years particularly so. Last fall he went to Florida and spent his winter at St. Petersburg with his wife, they only arriving North recently, and going immediately to Xenia where they have been sojourning until the end.
...Mr. Clark was a member of the State Board of Equalization a few years ago, and had been often spoken of for high places in the State, but shifting conditions in politics never seemed to be quite opportune, but he was recognized as capable and worthy of distinguished preferment.
...He was married first to Miss Fannie Riggs in June, 1865, and became the father of Mrs. R. B. Ewing of Carlisle, O., Mrs. Dr. Lackey of Xenia, and Mr. J. S. Clark, the present auditor of Gallia county.
Mrs. Clark dying, he was united in marriage the second time to Mrs Sallie Harper, widow of the late Attorney Eben Harper, in October, 1881, and she survives him without children.
...He was a member of the M.E. church and a highly moral christian man of a kindly and agreeable nature and much respected and admired by a large acquaintance and sincerely and devotedly loved by family and relatives. [Gallipolis Daily Tribune, June 7, 1912 , Transcribed by Henny Evans]

Burt L. Lackey, D. D. S.
.....Dr. Burt L. Lackey, dental surgeon at Xenia, was born in the vicinity of Oakland, in Clinton county, this state, June 15, 1872, son of Enos Ellsworth and Laura (Sellars) Lackey, both of whom were born and reared in the neighboring county of Warren and the latter of whom is still living, now making her home at Xenia.
.....Enos Ellsworth Lackey was born on September 30, 1844, a son of Enos Lackey and wife, pioneers of Warren county, the former of whom was born in 1802 and who were the parents of fourteen children. Reared in Warren county, Enos E. Lackey later made his home for a while in Clinton county and in 1873 moved to the village of New Burlington, on the Green-Clinton county line and was there engaged in the general lumber business the rest of his life, operating a saw-mill and dealing in lumber, timber and logs and also engaged as a building contractor, his death occurring there on January 9, 1903. Mr. Lackey was a Republican and for years rendered service as a member of the local school board. He was a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, as is his widow, and at the time of his death was a member of the official board of the same. To him and his wife were born three sons, of whom Doctor Lackey is the youngest, the others being Walter Lackey, of New Burlington, a farmer, and Raymond L. Lackey, who was engaged in the grocery business at New Burlington and who died on September 1, 1907.
.....Upon completing the course in the New Burlington high school Burt L. Lackey began teaching school and for three years thereafter was the teacher of the school in the Buck Run district in Clinton county. He matriculated at the Ohio College of Dentistry and was graduated from that institution with the class of 1896. Thus equipped for the practice of his profession, Doctor Lackey returned to his home at New Burlington and opened an office there, continuing in practice at that place for eighteen months, at the end of which time, in January, 1898, he located at Xenia, where he ever since has been engaged in practice, with present offices in the Steele building. Preparatory to his marriage in 1902, Doctor Lackey built a house at 20 Home avenue, Xenia, where he is still living.
.....Doctor Lackey has been twice married. On September 10, 1902, he was united in marriage to Ada Frances Clark, who was born and reared in Gallia county, this state, and who for nine years prior to her marriage had been engaged as a special teacher at the Ohio Soldiers and Sailors Orphans Home at Xenia. To that union were born three children, Clark, born on December 10, 1903; Dorothy, May 9, 1907, and Helen, January 1, 1911. The mother of these children died on March 27, 1914, and on June 30, 1915, Doctor Lackey married Jessella Beebe, who was born at Kingman, Kansas, and who was reared at Elwood Indiana, in which latter city her father, John W. Beebe, is still living. [Source: Michael A. Broadstone, "History of Greene County, Ohio: its people, industries and institutions", Indianapolis, B.F. Bowen, 1918, pg. 654, 6550]

Leven Elias Leeth can be found in various records as Leaven, Leven, Elevin and Levan. I used the spelling most often found on his documents. I believe he was probably named after a great grandfather whose name was Levin Harnanson. Levin is the more common spelling for this name.

MEMORIES.... by Charlotte (Leeth) Beck
The thing I remember most about grandpa was that he never smiled, never cracked a joke, was very strict and very religious. He wore a long handlebar mustache and none of the kids liked it when he kissed them, including me. Grandpa and Grandma Leeth lived with us for awhile in Lancaster, Ohio.

During the Civil War, Leven remembered the day that an official rode up to the parents house on a bay horse to serve draft orders to his father and how his mother cried, however, his father did as many others of his time did, paid the customary bounty, in this case it was three hundred dollars, to a fellow to act as a substitute in his place. As a result of this, his father was still around at the time of Morgan's raid on the area in Pike's County. There was a number of men who stood guard over various bridges to prevent Morgan and his men from blowing them up. Also during his younger days, there was an incident which the local reservoir was blown up. It was done by a well organized group of approximately 100 men who loaded a half ton of dynamite into a wagon and one night blew it up which flows into the Maumee river. No one was hurt and there was no investigation. Many farmers got their land that was taken away because of the reservoir. Leven first came to Paulding County in 1872 when he was 16 years old. The old canal was still in commission at that time and was used for freight. It wasn't long afterwards that the last boat was to leave Antwerp by the Maumee river which was loaded with lumber. Leven was one of the men to help load the boat for the last historical trip on the canal. Leven worked in the Tile Mills near East Liberty and after Almina died, he moved to Paulding.

MEMORIES
...Grandma always had a flower garden with old fashioned bearded iris, peonies, rose of sharon and roses. She even grew flowers between the vegetables. These flowers have become some of my favorite, although I like most flowers. She loved to read and would read everything including magazines, farm journals, books and newspapers.
...They never had running water in any of their home nor an indoor bathroom. They carried water from the pump outside the kitchen to wash dishes and bath. Using the bathroom was a walk down the path to the little wooden building with two seats. In the winter it was a cold visit and in the summer you had to watch out for the bees and wasps making a new home.
...I only remember Grandma having white hair. Dad said her hair turned white when she was in her twenties. Until she had a stroke and could no longer take care of it, she wore her hair long (below her waist) but in a braid pinned up around her head. Her hair was a pretty white not the yellow-gray that some people have. I remember when she had to have it cut after Mom tried washing brushing and braiding it while taking care of her. When she recovered from the stroke she continued to keep it short and it was still very thick and a full head of hair.
...I also remember Grandma wearing sun bonnets in the garden and carrying vegetables or eggs in her apron. Both of my grandmothers wore sun bonnets and used their apron for a basket and both of them made their sun bonnets and aprons.

MEMORIES
by Charlotte (Leeth) Beck
When my grandparents lived with us I remember grandma sitting on the porch drinking beer and eating saltine crackers. She would sit in the rocker, rocking back and forth, sipping on her beer and eating crackers until she got a little "tipsy" and giggled. Grandma liked to tell jokes and play practical jokes on people, but, grandpa did not care for either and would become irritated. I remember that she would never lift a finger to help my mother around the house, not even in child birth. My father said grandma was raised in a convent after her mother died but I don't know where or have proof.

Battle of Chickamauga
September 18-20, 1863
Estimated Casualties: 34,624 total (US 16,170; CS 18,454
Description: After the Tullahoma Campaign, Rosecrans renewed his offensive, aiming to force the Confederates out of Chattanooga. The three army corps comprising Rosecrans’ s army split and set out for Chattanooga by separate routes. In early September, Rosecrans consolidated his forces scattered in Tennessee and Georgia and forced Bragg’s army out of Chattanooga, heading south. The Union troops followed it and brushed with it at Davis’ Cross Roads. Bragg was determined to reoccupy Chattanooga and decided to meet a part of Rosecrans’s army, defeat them, and then move back into the city. On the 17th he headed north, intending to meet and beat the XXI Army Corps. As Bragg marched north on the 18th, his cavalry and infantry fought with Union cavalry and mounted infantry which were armed with Spencer repeating rifles. Fighting began in earnest on the morning of the 19th, and Bragg’s men hammered but did not break the Union line. The next day, Bragg continued his assault on the Union line on the left, and in late morning, Rosecrans was informed that he had a gap in his line. In moving units to shore up the supposed gap, Rosencrans created one, and James Longstreet’s men promptly exploited it, driving one-third of the Union army, including Rosecrans himself, from the field. George H. Thomas took over command and began consolidating forces on Horseshoe Ridge and Snodgrass Hill. Although the Rebels launched determined assaults on these forces, they held until after dark. Thomas then led these men from the field leaving it to the Confederates. The Union retired to Chattanooga while the Rebels occupied the surrounding heights. Result: Confederate victory
