Caldwell, Lloyd Marlin

Caldwell Boy Falls Off Truck And Dies Here
Accident Occurs Near His Home At Swan Creek
     Marlin Caldwell, 10-year-old Swan Creek boy, fell or jumped off a moving truck last evening and died in a few minutes after he was brought to the Holzer Hospital at 7 o'clock. The back of his head was crushed in and the boy was gasping for breath when he reached the operating table.
     Marlin was one of eight or nine children of Calvin Caldwell, who lives on the Frank H. Mills farm and near the Mills Home.
     The accident occurred near the Swan Creek Bridge. The elder Caldwell was hauling corn to a silo and several of his boys were riding on the rear end of the truck. Though this writer was unable to communicate with any member of the family, the report was current that Marlin said something about jumping off and killing himself just a moment or two before he fell or jumped. This was the first highway fatality in the county since Memorial Day, when three men were fatally hurt near the Children's Home.
     Since the foregoing lines were written it is learned that the boy's full name was Lloyd Marlin Caldwell and his age was 10 years and 10 days.
     Surviving, besides the parents, are nine brothers and sisters: Calvin Jr., Irene, Earl, Farrell, Leroy, Donnie, Bobby Eugene, Frank, Osa Maxine and a grandmother, Mrs. Osa Martin of Carroll, O.
     Funeral services will be conducted at 10 Thursday forenoon at Kings Chapel by Rev. Chester Cremeens. Burial by Stevers.

The family wishes to express their thanks to friends, relatives and others who so kindly assisted them in their sad hour of bereavement.
     Mary E. Garlic was born in Gallia county, Ohio, Oct 4, 1884, and died July 29, 1922, aged 37 years 9 months and 25 days. She was married to W. W. Caldwell on June 13, 1906. to this union were born six children, namely: Odra G., James ?., Climena H., Mary Phyllis, William H., and Robert E., all of whom survive her.
     At the age of 16 Mary was converted and joined the M. E. Church at Cherrington. I know how vain it is to gild a grief like this with words, yet those of us who are left to stand on the shore and gaze with tearful eyes toward her happy home realize that her condition is better than our own, but nevertheless, it causes us to weep and mourn, and it is not for our condition but because we are separated from one so young, so beautiful, so faithful and so kind. Her pale form sleeps beneath a seven hurd bow of hope, but her spirit has winged its early flight to the God who gave it, for the Bible says, "He made the woman to keep the house, and to be the joyful Mother of Children." "Praise ye the Lord."
     We have known her all her life and we can vouch that her joy and pride was in pleasing her husband and her children and keeping a clean house, not only this but to please all whom she met. Mary was so kind, so cheerful, so loving, so sympathetic and so honorable that a friendship of hers was a valuable possession. Mary made no pretenses but lived as to say about one true and honest drop of blood was worth all the hypocrit blood that courses so many veins. For these reasons we can say she has gone to join the choir invisible whose music is the gladness of this world.
     Mary not only leaves her husband and children, but her mother, Mrs. Emanline Garlic, brothers William L., of Sunset, Ind., E. L. of Huntington, W. Va., J. O. and H. C. of N.Y. and one sister, Mrs. Grace Bay of N.Y., also a host of friends and relatives.

Mary to heaven has gone
And she can never come back.
But those who hold out faithful
May follow in her track.

[Buried in James M. Garlic Cemetery in Guyan Twp.]

Where hand is clasped in hand.

Let’s make our purpose sure,
And anchor fast our trust in God
‘Tis there it is secure.

Call, Joe  Donald


Down a road that's calm and peaceful,
Guided by God's loving hand,
He has gone upon a journey,
To a distant, brighter land,
He wished no one a last farewell,
Or even said "Good-bye",
He was gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.

Callahan, Jennie

The Late Mrs. John T. Callahan
     Jennie, the daughter of G. W. and Mary Ann Wolfe, was born May 25, 1859 at Letart, W. Va., and died at her home in Gallipolis, Ohio, Oct. 7, 1918, at the age of 59 years, 4 months and 12 days. She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church at Letart, Ohio, in her early girlhood.
     She was one of Meigs county’s successful school teachers for several years, after which she went into the mercantile business with her two brothers at Parkersburg, W. Va., for a period of seven years.
Two brothers and two sisters survive her, namely, E. S. Wolfe of Parkersburg, W. Va., E. H. Wolfe of New Kensington, Pa., Mrs. Nathan McDade and Mrs. Lillie Wagner, both of Letart Falls, Ohio, and one half-sister, Mrs. Emma Wolfe of Plants, Ohio.
     She was joined in marriage with Mr. J. T. Callahan at Parkersburg, W. Va., Jan. 15, 1903. They have found great happiness in each other through these fifteen years of their married life, and our brother has the sympathy of his many friends in this great bereavement that has come upon him.
     Mrs. Callahan had been a Christian most of her life, and during the last years, she was a faithful member of Grace Methodist Episcopal Church in Gallipolis. She was for several years the Secretary of the Woman’s Bible class, and President of the Ladies Aid Society, which office she held at the time of her death. She was for several years a member of Grace church choir. She was the Chaplain of the Eastern Star, and was a tireless worker in the Woman’s Home Missionary Society. In the inner courts of her home, in the inner courts of the world, in the holy places of the church, and in the holy of holies on high, it will be said of this faithful woman of God, that “She hath done what she could.”

     Our well-known citizen, I. R. Calohan, Esq., died on Tuesday forenoon. Some weeks since, when we spoke of his illness, strong hopes were then entertained of his recovery, but, soon after, the disease assumed a more malignant form, and though he had the best medical skill our city could afford, still he continued to sink until, as above stated, he very quietly passed away. The deceased had been a resident of our city over 35 years, and by his honesty and uprightness had won the confidence and respect of all. He served two terms as County Treasurer. In all the relations of life he was true to the golden commandment—"Do unto others as you would wish others to do unto you." His age was about 55 years.

Campbell, Allen

Allen Campbell Dead
     Allen Campbell, one of the good citizens of the Waugh Bottom neighborhood, died Friday morning at his home near the mouth of Horse Creek. His death followed an attack of influenza. Mr. Campbell was born in Ohio township, June 22, 1851, and at the time of his death was 70 years 6 months and 8 days old. He was a farmer by occupation and always took an active part in the affairs of his community. His wife was Miss Ella Carter of Chambersburg. The children born to this union are Herman and Charles Camabell, now living in Hungtington, W. Va., and Mrs. Ruby Rose of Bladen.
     Mr. Campbell's life was associated with a bit of pioneer history, his grandparents, settling in this county, near his birthplace, in 1806. They came from Culpepper County, Virginia when Mr. Campbell's father, George Campbell, was one year old. They had to endure all the privations of pioneer life. During the war of 1812, Mr. Campbell's father was in great danger from the Indians and his mother often hid the children thru the day under a drift pile on the river bank. They had to do their trading in Gallipolis and their nearest mill was twenty seven miles away, upon the Guyan river. The corn for their bread they ground by hand or grated it on a tin grater made from an old pan. Their meat consisted of deer and wild turkey. The bears would not allow them to raise any hogs and the wolves often destroyed all their sheep.
     When ever they went to church or to visit a neighbor they carried their rifles with them.
The readers of our younger generation will hardly believe that these facts once occurred in their neighborhood which is now thickly populated and almost void of any signs of pioneer life.
     The funeral services over the remains of Mr. Campbell were held at the Swan Creek M. E. Church Sunday evening and were largely attended. Rev. Earl Cremeans pronounced the funeral sermon and Undertaker J. W. Stevers had charge of the burial in the church cemetery.

[Note: Dates on tombstone are 1851-1921]

Campbell, Charles G.

From Friday's Tribune
     Charles G. Campbell, a native of Green Twp. and long a resident of Bidwell, died last night in a Cleveland hospital. He was about 85 years old and made his home with his daughter, Miss Hattie Campbell, who was a Y.W.C.A. secretary. He is survived also by a son, Harold, a druggist in Columbus.
     Mr. Campbell was the last survivor of his generation of a well known family, that of William and Wealtha West Campbell. He was a brother of Mrs. John E. Mills, who died some months ago at Island Side, and was an uncle of Mrs. Harry Maddy, Robert and William Campbell of this city. He was a fine type of Christian gentleman. Mr. Campbell’s wife, Florence Sawyer Campbell, died at Bidwell some years ago.
His body will be brought back to Bidwell and the funeral will be held in the Bidwell Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Sunday. Burial in Fairview Cemetery by Coleman & Son.

From Monday's Tribune
     Funeral services for Charles G. Campbell, who died Thursday night in a hospital at Cleveland, were held Sunday afternoon at the Bidwell Methodist Church with Rev. J. L. Stephenson officiating. The Williams trio, with Mrs. Steve Thomas as accompanist, sang and burial was in Fairview Cemetery by J. L. Coleman & Son. Pall bearers were William and Robert Campbell, Harry Maddy, Harry Scice, E. E. Hatfield and Edwin McCormick.
     Mr. Campbell would have been 86 years old on March 1 and up to his last illness which was but ten days, he had been remarkably well and active. Until eight years ago, after the death of his wife, when Mr. Campbell went to make his home with his daughter, Miss Hattie, he had been a resident of this county and Bidwell was his home for years.
     In addition to the daughter, a son, Harold of Columbus also survives, but was ill and could not attend the last rites. There are two grandsons, Fletcher Campbell who is in service at Camp Rucker, Ala., and Charles Campbell of Columbus.
     Miss Campbell was accompanied down from Columbus by her cousins, Mrs. C. G. Nida and Arius Sawyer. She returned with Mrs. Nida today and will go on tomorrow to Cleveland where she is associated with the Y.W.C.A.

Mrs. Campbell Dies 9:30 A.M. Bidwell Home
End Expected Since She Suffered Stroke On Saturday-Funeral at 2 Friday
     Mrs. Florence Sawyers [sic] Campbell, wife of Charles G. Campbell, died at 9:30 this morning at their home in Bidwell, after an illness of only four days. She suffered a stroke of apoplexy on Saturday and remained in a helpless and hopeless condition thereafter.
     Mrs. Campbell was an estimable woman, a devout Christian, an exemplary wife and mother. Funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock Friday at the Bidwell M.E. church, in charge of Rev. J.L. Stephenson and Rev. E.E. Brewer. Burial in Fairview cemetery by Undertaker Coleman.
     Mrs. Campbell was a brother [sic- should be sister] of the late G.B. Sawyer of this city. She was born near Bulaville and was a daughter of Keiser and Sarah Morehouse Sawyer. She was 76 years old last April 14.
     Her marriage to Mr. Campbell took place Sept. 20, 1888, the late Dr. J.M. Davis of Rio Grande having performed the ceremony. Most of their married life was spent on a farm in Green tp. but they had resided in Bidwell for a decade or more.
     There survive, besides the devoted husband, two children, Harold of Columbus and Hattie, a teacher, of Ashville, N.C., both of whom were at their mother's bedside during her last illness. Then there are two living brothers and a sister; Dan E. Sawyer of Columbus, Tom and Miss Carrie Sawyer of Bidwell.

In a 2nd obituary...........

Campbell, Florence Sawyers

     Florence Sawyers Campbell was born at Porter, Ohio, April 13th, 1859, and died Wednesday morning, July 10th, 1935, at the age of 76 years and three months. She joined the M. E. church at Westerman when quite young, and was a devout Christian the remainder of her life.
     In 1887 she was united in marriage to Chas. G. Campbell. They were the parents of three children, one dying in infancy, Harold of Columbus and Hattie of Ashville, N. C., and two grandchildren, these with the husband, are left to mourn her loss, and a sister and two brothers are left to mourn her loss.
     Previous to her marriage she was a teacher in the Gallia County schools for twelve years. She believed in doing the things worth while, and was untiring in her efforts to make a success of her work, in the home, the school room and elsewhere.
     To us so closely associated with her through the years her death leaves a void. She was our friend- always true. In the quiet of the evening, among the flowers she loved, she was suddenly stricken, lingering but a few days-and then-they told us she was dead.
     Rev. Stephenson, assisted by Rev. Brewer, talked from the text "All are yours." Mrs. Harris Doepping sang very sweetly "Sunset and Evening Star" and "Some Day the Silver Cord Will Break." We know that all is well, and that again we shall clasp her hand.

Campbell, Jim [James Bodkins Campbell]

Jim Campbell, Aged 86, Died this Morning
Came To Gallipolis Out Of Slavery In 1865 And Made Thousands Of Friends
     Jim Campbell, who was about as well known to Gallipolitans as the Courthouse or the Park, died at 6:30 this morning at his home at the upper end of Fourth ave. and at the edge of the golf course.
Though many realized that the end was near for the one-time slave, the news of his passing brought a sigh of regret as it spread from person to person, among colored and white, old and young alike.

Here a Long Time
     Jim or "Ole Jim", or "Uncle Jim" had become a sort of institution here, without ever suspecting how genuinely he has endeared himself to the folk among whom he had lived for 74 years.
     Jim's death was due to dropsy. Failing health compelled him to quit as a janitor for the Columbus Southern Ohio Electric Co. a year or so ago, but that concern provided him a pension and he did not want. When his illness became hopeless a few days ago, a colored man was engaged to remain with him and take care of him.
     Funeral service will be held at 2 o'clock at the Paint Creek Baptist church, with Rev. B.R. Reed in charge, it was announced by Harry Alexander, a nephew of the decedent. Burial in Pine St. cemetery by F.J. Entsminger.
     Jim was born a slave on the plantation of Joe Alexander in Monroe county, W. Va. (then Virginia) in January, 1852. "Marse" Alexander owned 10 slaves, Jim often remarked, but never whipped any of them. As the Civil War drew to a close in 1865, Mr. Alexander called in the slaves to the main house and told them: "You are just as free as I am. You can go or you may stay." Some elected to go North. They were given an old war horse, which they took to Lewisburg 20 miles away and sold the animal to a white man headed for Charleston in a covered wagon. Jim, a boy of 13, traveled in the same direction, as did other freedmen, including his stepfather and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Levi Alexander.
     At Charleston they saw a steamboat, the General Crooks, for the first time. A few days later they aboarded [sic] another boat, the General (or is it Governor) Meigs, and came to Gallipolis. That was in the spring of 1865, Jim related, and when they walked up the river bank here, men were putting in the foundation of the Riverview Hotel, long since abandoned.

Campell Funeral
     Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon from Grace Methodist Church for Earl Campell who died last Wednesday morning at the home of T. E. Smeltzer.

     He was a member of the Elks lodge and four years ago was a Democrat candidate for sheriff of Gallia county. Services were conducted by the Rev. W. Scott Westerman and interment was made in Mound Hill cemetery.

Canterbury, Luther Ambrose

Death of Mr. Canterbury
     Mr. Luther Ambrose Canterbury, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Canterbury, of upper Third Street, was released from his agonizing condition by death at 11:30 o’clock, Friday evening, March 23, 1900. His funeral services will be conducted at Grace M.E. Church at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon, by Rev, L. L. Magee, pastor in charge, the interment following at the Pine street cemetery by Wetherholt. The pall bearers were selected from comrades of the Hospital Corps in the Spanish- American war, and who served their country in that capacity.
     The circumstances of Mr. Canterbury’s death have been given and are familiar to all. His injuries were received Saturday evening, one week ago, at the residence of Andrew Pickens in Green township, and he was brought to the home of his parents on Sunday. He got along well until Wednesday, when a change set in for the worse and delirium and unconsciousness followed for most of the time until the end.
     He was 23 years old the 18th of last January and was one of nine children, being the fourth son and eighth child, his brothers and sisters being as follows: Charles, of the 31st U.S. Vols., now on the island of Mindanao, 1100 miles beyond Manila; William, Joseph, Clinton and Elza, at home; Mrs. Alice Kyle, of Lancaster; Mrs. Sadie Barker, of Nelsonville and Mrs. Josephine Bowen, of this city.
     He was a steady, industrious young man of good reputation over town and among all his acquaintances, and an employee of the Fuller & Hutsinpiller furniture factory. At home he was a favorite among all. Being ever kind, pleasant and thoughtful of his parents and brothers in the family, and always solicitations as to their welfare, the money that he earned going into the family fund whenever necessary for their comfort or pleasure.
     His death came with crushing force to them and they are utterly prostrated by grief, but trying to be submissive to the divine will which doeth all things well. They are also comforted with the belief that he, knowing that he could not survive, sought and obtained that divine blessing which made him happy to the last moments of consciousness, and which left a smile upon his countenance when he passed away.
Capt. Bovie of Co. C was not here at this writing, but it is believed that on his arrival arrangements would be made for the company to turn out and take part in the funeral obsequies.
     Among those who joined the Hospital Corps when he did were Will Cherrington, Dr. Earl Schaefer, Jno. P. Hanna, frank Shank, Ira W. Booten, Jr., Will Needham, Harry Soules and others. The pall bearers selected are William Cherrington, Ira W. Booten, Jr., A. r. Fox, James Mears, Frank Shank, John P. Hanna, Dr. Earl Schaefer being substituted for any of the foregoing not able to serve.
