This post was contributed to the Crawford County Chapter of OGS by Kristina Stearley as part of the Florence Siefert Scrapbook in 2010.

The scrapbook is compiled from undated, unidentified newspaper clippings involving events in the lives of Crawford County citizens living in or having connections to New Washington, Tiro, Shelby, Sulphur Springs, Chatfield, Bucyrus, Ashland, Mansfield, and other areas. Only minimal spelling or punctuation corrections were made. Unreadable areas are shown by underlines, dots &/or question marks. This collection has been scanned, “optical character recognized” (OCR’d), proofed, then coded for HTML by volunteers of the Crawford County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society. Since the copies are not of the best quality errors may have been made. Please contact us if you find corrections needing to be made or can verify any missing dates which could be added.

Patrick Cluney was born in. Richland county, Ohio, October 15, 1871, and died March 1, 1894, aged 23 yrs., 4 mos., 15 da. The deceased was a victim of that dreaded disease – consumption. His fatal illness lasted a little more than six months. In 1887 he was caught between two cars and sustained severe injuries which it is thought superinduced his fatal illness. The deceased was a resident of New Washington for 21 years and had many warm friends at this place as the large attendance at the funeral verified. The bereft family has the sympathy of all.
