...Passed Away at Xenia, Ohio, After Long Illness.
The following account of the death of a well-known Gallia County, girl is taken from the Xenia Daily Republican of Friday March 27, 1914:
...A beautiful life, full of love and tender devotion to her home and little children, came to a close today in the death of Mrs. Ada Clark Lackey, wife of Dr. Bert L. Lackey, well known dentist, who passed away at her home 20 Home Avenue, twenty minutes after ten, Friday morning. Mrs. Lackey had lain in an unconscious condition for hours preceding the end and death came peacefully and quietly. Cancer, which became apparent November 7 a year ago, was the immediate cause of death and during the weary months when she was confined to her home, Mrs. Lackey displayed a beautiful Christian fortitude bearing her sufferings without a murmur, except for her little ones, from whom death would separate her. Her husband and children have the sympathy of her scores of friends in their great bereavement.
...Ada Clark Lackey was born November 7, 1871, at Raccoon Island, Gallia county, and was a daughter of Hon. Amos Clark, at one time a member of the State Board of Equalization, and a prominent retired farmer, broker and merchant of that place. Mr. Clark died at the Lackey home in this city, June 4, 1912. Her mother passed away when Mrs. Lackey was but three years of age, but a step-mother gave her and her brother and sister all of the tender care of a mother. She survives and lies in Gallipolis, Ohio.
...Mrs. Lackey finished her education at Lebanon National Normal institute and at Ohio Wesleyan university at Delaware, where she took a special art course. For a time she taught penmanship in the public schools of Manchester and in 1891 came to Xenia where she was appointed instructor in penmanship and bookkeeping at the O. S. & S. O. Home, which position she held for nine years. It was here that she met Dr. L. B. Lackey, and their marriage was solemnized September 10, 1902. They went to housekeeping within a short time in a newly built home on Home avenue, where they had lived ever since. Mrs. Lackey leaves her husband and three little children, Clark, Dorothy and Helen, the youngest of whom is only three years of age.
...Mrs. Lackey united with the Clay Chapel Methodist church at Raccoon Island when but 11 years of age, and retained her membership there until she came to Xenia when she joined the First Methodist church. She was a true Christian mother, and the interests of her little family were always first in her mind. She was greatly beloved and admired in her circle of friends.
...Mrs. Lackey's sister, Mrs. J. B. Ewing, had been with her several weeks preceding her death, and with her brother, J. S. Clark who had frequently visited her during her illness was at her bedside when death came. They are the only surviving members of her immediate family.
...Funeral services will be held at the home Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock and will be in charge of the Rev. Charles W. Sullivan, of the First Methodist church. Burial will be made at Woodland cemetery. [Source: Original newspaper clipping: The Gallipolis Bulletin, March 27, 1914]

She had been in feeble health for some time but did not take to her bed till Saturday, Oct. 22nd.

Mrs. Harlan was the daughter of David and Sarah Hogue, and was born in the old fort at Vincennes, Oct. 4, 1812, her father being one of the soldiers of the garrison, and her mother, with many other women of the surrounding country, being there for safety. Her parents moved to Union Prairie in 1814 and here she grew up to womanhood and was married to Mr. Harlan March 4, 1832. the young couple began housekeeping in Darwin, then the county seat. When the court house was changed to Marshall the family moved here and this has ever since been her home. Nine children were the fruits of this marriage; all but one who died in infancy, being still living and with one exception making their homes in Marshall. Her husband died in 1879 and since then the aged mother has been cared for by her children with tender solicitude.
Mrs. Harlan had long been a faithful and consistent member of the Presbyterian church and pursued her way through life with an unfaltering faith in the merciful love of her Redeemer.
The funeral took place today at 10 .a.m. from the family residence, Rev. C. F. Wilson in charge. A large concourse of friends and relatives followed the remains to their last resting place beside those of her husband in the Marshall Cemetery.

Clark, James S.
Probate Judge James S. Clark
Able Public Servant Passes In 74th Year After Long Illness
Elected Auditor Twice and Seven Times as Probate Judge
.....Judge White Assumes New Duties for Time Being.
.....About 1 o'clock this morning death ended the remarkable career of Judge James Stephen Clark at his home, 345 Fourth Ave. He had been unconscious for a couple of days, but his illness had been hopeless for several months, at least.
.....Judge Clark held office in this county longer than anyone else known to the present generation. He knew more people in the county, knew more about the people of the county and had more warm friends among them probably than anyone else ever had.
.....Loved to Serve
His death has taken from them wise counsellor, a capable and hard working official -- one who in years ahead will become a legendary figure. He possessed an amazing capacity for hard and exacting work together with a willingness and an eagerness to be of service to all who came to his office or home to seek advice or favors. Judge Clark had a remarkable career in business before he started on a more remarkable political and official career.
.....He was 73 years old last March, having been born in Clay Township in 1869. He was a son of Amos and Frances Riggs Clark prominent and outstanding in the closing decades of the last century. James S. finished his education at the Normal University at Lebanon, Ohio and Eastman Business College in New York. Associated with widely known firm of Graham, Clark and Riggs (made up of his kinfolk) he engaged in the produce business and operated flatboats between this sector and New Orleans. Later he was in the cold storage business in Milwaukee.
.....On June 2, 1897, he and Ethel McDaniel of the same community were united in marriage. Eleven years later James S. Clark, then a vigorous and aggressive man but not extensively acquainted in his native county, was nominated and elected County Auditor. He served two terms and in 1916 he was elected probate judge and entered upon his duties the following Feb. 9. Each quadrennium thereafter he was reelected, meeting opposition at first but finally winning the characterization of being "invincible".
.....Rites on Tuesday
.....Funeral services for Judge J.S. Clark will be held at 6 o'clock Tuesday evening at the funeral home of George J. Wetherholt & Sons. Rev. J.L. Stephenson will officiate, as decedent's pastor, Rev. W. Scott Westerman, is in Michigan. Interment will be made in Mound Hill Cemetery.
Friends may view the features there after 2 o'clock Sunday p.m.
.....Thursday, a prominent Columbus lawyer here on business, said "Judge Clark is undoubtedly one of the ablest probate judges in Ohio, even if he is not a lawyer." And it is no secret that many southern Ohio probate judges consulted him frequently about legal and official problems.
.....Working side by side with him during his official career has been Mrs. Clark, who has demonstrated a capacity for public service and for making friends comparable to his.
.....Illness at last overtaking him, Judge Clark left his office last November (missing section) surgical skill could do to cure or greatly relieve him. He suffered much and had become extremely emaciated. Three nurses had helped to care for him during the latter part of his invalidism.
.....Judge Clark is survived by, besides his devoted wife, a daughter, Mrs. Frank E. Wetherholt; two grandchildren, Frank Clark Wetherholt and Judy Weatherholt and one sister, Mrs. Mary Ewing, all of Gallipolis.
.....Judge Clark was a member of the Methodist Church and he was a Shriner, Knight Templar, 32nd Degree Mason, an Elk and Eastern Star.
.....Judge Clark was a man of diversified interests. Persons active in local politcs recognized him as one of the shrewdest and most resourceful the county has known. [Source: Gallipolis Paper, No date, Transcribed by F.K. Brown]

...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]

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]

Leeth, John Mathias (I110)

Passes Away After Long Illness,
...Judge Darius Leeth of the Probate court of this county answered the death summons Wednesday morning at 3 a. m., after a long illness from consumption.
...He was born in Pike county April 28th., 1846 and was therefore 57 years, 10 months and 23 days old at the time of his death. He grew to manhood in his native county but later he removed to Logan county where he was united in marriage to Miss Mary A. Wren. They came to Paulding county about 30 years ago and have since resided here. He leaves a wife and a large family of grown children to mourn his decease.
...Judge Leeth was a resident of Harrison township for many years where he held positions of trust repeatedly, always with fairness and fidelity. In 1893 he was favored by the Republican party with the nomination for probate judge and was elected by a large majority. Defeated for his second term by the narrow margin of 19 votes, his party again honored him with the nomination in 1899 and he was triumphantly elected and again re-elected in 1902. At the time of his death he was serving his third term in that important office with honesty, fidelity and popularity with the people.
...Judge Leeth was an honest, honorable, upright man. Voluminous could be written of his splendid character and exemplary life as a citizen without overdoing the subject. Judge Leeth's spiritual character is best illustrated by this brief paragraph kindly handed to us by his pastor:
..."Judge Leeth for a number of years was skeptical in regard to Christianity. Confused by the sects of Christendom and the various creeds, he had abandoned hope of understanding religious matters and had concluded that God did not require an open profession of men. But in 1896 under the preaching of Victor W. Dorris he was led to see that 'God calls all men everywhere to repent and turn to God.' Accordingly on Dec., 16th., of that year he was baptised in Christ by G. B. Townsend. He has been for a number of years a deacon in the Church of Christ in Paulding and died as he expressed himself, without fear, but sorry that he could not do more good in the world."
...The funeral will occur on Friday afternoon under the auspices of Widow's Son Lodge F. & A. M. Of which he was devoted member, from the Christian church, its pastor Rev. Chas. Darsie officiating and his remains will be interred in Live Oak Cemetery.
...The family have the true sympathy of the entire community in their bereavement.

Second Obituary
Judge Leeth's Obsequies,
...The funeral Judge Leeth occurred Friday afternoon at 9 p. m., in the driving rain that fell incessantly throughout the day. The ceremony was under the auspices of the Masonic lodge of this place and about seventy of the brethern were in line including members from Payne and Antwerp lodges. The sermon of Rev. Charles Darsie, pastor of the Christian church, was heard by an assemblage that packed the church betokening the exteem in which the deceased was held by the citizens of our town and county, a great many of the Judge's old friends and neighbors in the vicinity of Payne and Antwerp having braved the storm to participate in the last sad rites. The pastor's remarks were close to his subject and dwelt more upon the splendid life and character of our departed citizen than upon the future state.
...The Masonic rites were divinely impressive and beautiful and followed the remarks of Rev. Darsie. The services at the cemetery were made quite both by the pastor and the order on account of the driving rain that bent down upon the solemn assemblage.
...Of the visiting brethren from Payne there were; F. J. Wobler, F. M. Houser, N. E. Prentice, Levi Barrone, Harry Hyman, Hiram Underwood, Ira Graham, _____Knisely and_____Kerr. From Antwerp there were; J. H. Adcock, David Zuber, Jno. Paulson, A. R. Lacy, C. C. Jacobs, S. B. Harris, Byron Snook, Thos. Carr and James Chorpenning. Other out of town brethren were Hon. W. H.
