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.

Gale Hamilton Garner died at the residence of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lon Garner, on Friday, July 5, 1889, aged 1 yr., 2 mos., 21 da. Little Gale has been a severe sufferer for months past and finally became a victim to his last enemy. Funeral services were held at the M. E. church on Sunday afternoon, conducted by Rev. Kauffman. The interment took place at the Goodwill cemetery where a large concourse of sympathizing people followed the remains to their last resting place.
