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.

Mrs. Christ Guiss, of New Washington, died at her home in that village, Thursday night, February 23, aged 80 years, 3 months and 21 days. The funeral was held Sunday at 9:30 a. m. from the German Lutheran church, Rev. D. Ph. Ebert conducting services. She leaves a husband and several grown children, among them Mrs. L. C. Donnenwirth, of Caledonia, formerly of Bucyrus. She was well known here and many will learn of her death with regret.
