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.

Dora Hainley, of Latcha, Wood county, Ohio, oldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Hainley, was born February 18, 1890, and died March 2, 1900, at the age of 10 years and 12 das. The deceased was baptized in the Lutheran faith in 1890 and was a faithful member during her short life.
Dora was a bright and loving child, making home pleasant with her cheerful manners and her early death is a terrible blow to the stricken family, who have the heartfelt sympathy of their many friends.
Funeral services were held from the house on Monday, March 5, 1900, conducted by Rev. Borne of the Lutheran church of Stony Ridge. Interment in Luckey cemetery. Text: I Thessalonians, 4th chapter, 13 and 14 verses.

Dearest Dora thou hast left us,
Here thy loss we deeply feel,
But it is God who has bereft us,
He will all our sorrows heal.
