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.

Hazel, daughter of H. M. and Carrie Cory, was born July 3, 1887, and died March 18, 1890, aged 2 yrs., 8 mo. 15 da. Hazel was a bright and cheerful little girl, and seemed to be the very picture of health; but suddenly a dread disease prostrated her, and the glow and sparkle of health were extinguished. No one thought that disease was so deeply rooted, or that death was so near, until the sad announcement was made to the parents that the closing scene of her young interesting life was at hand. The parents have the sympathy and prayer of the community, and may they find comfort in the thought of the eternal security and blessedness of their child.


Prof. O. J. Cory, principal of the High school at this place, was last week elected principal of the North Side school at North Baltimore, Ohio.
Mr. Cory did excellent work at this place during the last two years, giving general satisfaction, and the fact that his acceptance of the North Baltimore position, will necessarily call him away from this place, causes universal regret among his many friends at this place. Mr. Cory is a close student, a thorough scholar and an efficient teacher. He is strictly conscientious and his character is above reproach.

THE HERALD, together with his many friends, while regretting his intention of leaving us, wish him happiness and success in his new field of labor.
