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.
Death has again entered our midst and taken from our number in the person of Mary Fisher one who was just entering in full vigor the sphere of womanhood. Death is sad to us at all times but especialy so when it takes from our homes those who are just reaching the age of promise and usefulness. Miss Fisher died with that dreaded disease, diptheria, at the age of seventeen years five months and ten days. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church Sunday forenoon and her remains were interred in the cemetery south of town. The bereaved family has the sympathy of all.
