Life of Mr. Cadot
     John Julius Cadot was born in Scioto county, Ohio, February 14th, 1829 and died at Toledo, Ohio, August 8th, 1896. He came to this city when he was 18 years of age and clerked for the late Julius Regnier. In a few years he went into business with the late Chas. Henking the style of the firm being Henking & Cadot, then Mr. Alfred Henking was taken in as a partner and the firm was Cadot, Henking & Co.
     About 1856 he opened up a wholesale and retail grocery for himself in the old Hoy property opposite the Public Square now occupied by Harry Frank’s Sons, where he continued until 1479 [sic]. In May 1859 he was united in marriage to Mary B. Cohen, of Pomeroy, who died in Sept. 1882. Four children survive them Blanche, Will, Julius and Perley, one child dying in infancy. He had an attack of the grippe about four years age from which he never entirely recovered.
     Last December he went to Toledo to make his home with his son Julius. His mind becoming impaired and needing constant attention he was taken to a hospital the last week in February where he received every attention. All of the children were at his bedside ad remained with him until the last. Out of a family of nine children he was the oldest. Three sisters and one brother, L. Z. Cadot, of this city, have passed away while James, William, Cicero and Seymour survive him.

J. J. Cadot
     Mr. J. J. Cadot, whose funeral services took place today, was at one time one of the most prominent men in the city. He was a stirring, enterprising man whose money went into every enterprise which was was [sic] calculated to benefit his town and people. He was a large subscriber to the stock of the old Gallipolis, McArthur & Columbus R. R., and a liberal assistant to it in every way probably too liberal for his own good.
     He was a kindly hearted man that never turned a deaf nor calloused ear to an appeal for assistance. When a young man, he was exceedingly handsome, and a fine tasty dresser and his general appearance would have attracted attention anywhere. He was a descendant of Claudius Cadot, the first male child born in this city and who was a soldier in the war of 1812.
     In the day of the final reckoning of the good and the bad there will be found many a good and noble deed credited up in the Book of Life to the name of J. J. Cadot.

Caldwell, Edgar

Edgar Caldwell Hangs Self at Home
O.H.E. Attendant Worried Because of Failing Health;  Body Suspended From Limb Of Tree Is Found by Mrs. Caldwell Early This Morning When Returning From Work as a Night Attendant
     Edgar R. Caldwell, 53, long an attendant at the O. H. E., ended his life by hanging at his home on Mill Creek near the hospital grounds during the night. His body, suspended by the neck from the limb of an apple tree about 20 feet from the rear porch, was found by Mrs. Caldwell at about 6 a.m. when she returned home from the hospital. She is employed as a night attendant.

Proceeded Quietly

     Mr. Caldwell, who had been in ill health since the beginning of the year, and had not worked yesterday on account of illness, slipped from the house while his three children were asleep. He took an insulated wire, wrapped it twice around his neck, and tied the other end to a limb. When the body was taken down, it was noticed that the feet barely touched the ground. The tree stands on a slope, and a limb on the lower side was used. Mr. Caldwell had been advised to enter a hospital for treatment. A heart ailment had developed after he contracted the flu early in January, and he was discouraged about his condition. Still, he never intimated that he contemplated suicide. His death came as a shock to family, fellow workers and friends. In point of service, he was one of the older employees at the O.H.E., having gone there first in 1906. When in good health, he was of robust appearance, good physique and pleasing address.
     He was a member of the First Baptist Church and served as an usher there, and he also belonged to the Woodmen. Mr. Caldwell was born near Crown City Dec. 22, 1864 and was in his 54th year. He was a son of Jasper M. Caldwell, who survives, and Letitia C. Clark Caldwell, deceased.

Was Twice Married

     In 1910, he married Verbia Thompson, a daughter of George F. Thompson of Ohio Twp. She died in 1915, leaving no children. On March 10, 1920, Mr. Caldwell and Artie M. Delaney of near Waterloo were united in marriage by Rev. D. Finley Wood. She and these three children survive: Ray, 17; Bobbie, 13; and Merrill Barton, 11. Also surviving are the following brothers and sisters: O. F. Caldwell of Caledonia, O.; Mrs.  J. O. Garlic, Geneva, N.Y.; William C. Caldwell, Spencer, W.Va.; Homer, Parkersburg; Leslie V., Crown City; James N., Huntington; Clark, Crown City, with whom the father lives. The bereaved home is the first one on the right above the Mill Creek entrance to the O.H.E. and stands on a slope perhaps 75 feet above the road. After the body was found, Dr. W. Lewis Brown, coroner, was called and made a brief inquest finding that all the circumstances indicated a suicidal intent. The body was removed to J. L. Coleman’s mortuary at Bidwell. Mrs. Coleman and Mrs. Caldwell are sisters. Funeral services will be held at the Baptist Church at 2 o’clock Thursday with Rev. George Sagen in charge. Burial in Mound Hill Cemetery.

Frank Caldwell, 32, Expires at 8 This Morning
Funeral Is Set For 2 Monday at Mercerville
     Franklin Paul Caldwell, 32, whose condition was known to be well nigh hopeless, died about 8 o'clock this morning at the Holzer Hospital. His home was near what used to be Leaper Post Office (Crown City R.D. 2)

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.

Caldwell, Mary E. [Garlic]

Mrs. Caldwell Dead
     The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. W. W. Caldwell, whose obituary is recorded in this column, were held at the family residence, Sunday evening and over four hunderd people, with saddened hearts, listened to the impressive rites performed by Rev. Robert W. Pierce of Gallipolis. The large crowd was a testimonial of the high esteem in which this noble woman was held. Following the services, Undertaker Stevers' auto hearse followed by over sixty automobiles slowly moved to the little family plot on a sandy hill side, overlooking the old home where the deceased was born and reared, and there her remains were consigned to the silent tomb. 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, a daughter of Morgan and Sarah E. Garlicand, 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: Audrey G., James, Clymenia 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 hypocritical 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. Emmaline 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.]

And anchor fast our trust in God

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,

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.”

     Following the accident his body was placed on the train and carried to Delaware. Identification was made by means of an insurance tag carried in his pocket. The body was later returned from Delaware to his home in Columbus. On Saturday it was brought to Gallipolis and taken to the home of his brother, Mr. John T. Callahan.
     Mr. Callahan left Gallipolis a few months ago for Columbus where he became engaged in the real estate business and was doing well. He had charge of the Clintonville section of the Baldwin and Gourley Real Estate firm. He was on his way to interview a prospective realty purchaser when his death occurred.
Surviving Mr. Callahan are his widow, Mrs. Helen Callahan, a son Creston Callahan, a teacher at the Broadway School in Columbus and a daughter, Bernice, 12, a pupil in the Indianola school.
     A number of years ago Mr. Callahan and his brother, John T. Callahan, established a marble shop in Gallipolis, coming here from Jackson. Until recently the business was carried on under the firm name of Callahan Bros., when O.P. Callahan withdrew from the active management and removed his family to Columbus. His brother is continuing the business here.
     During his years of residence in Gallipolis, Mr. Callahan was an active figure in its business and religious life. He was an active worker in the Methodist Church, a member of its official board and had served as its Sunday School Superintendent and in other official capacities. He was also an active member of the Knights of Pythias and United Commercial Travelers organizations and was identified in many civic movements.
     The funeral was conducted in Grace M.E. Church Sunday afternoon by the pastor, Rev. Smith, and was largely attended. Interment was made in Mound Hill Cemetery in this city.

Callahan, R. O.

Fireman Killed; Engineer May Die
Trains in Head-On Crash as Fog Obscures Engineer’s Vision
Passenger Locomotive Climbs Front of Freight Train on New York Central Line Near Kanauga
    Dense fog cloaking the signal was believed responsible for a head-on train collision which killed Fireman R. O. Callahan, Middleport, and probably fatally injured Engineer P. A. Thomas, Middleport, of passenger train No. 32 on the New York Central line near Kanauga Saturday morning, shortly after 7 o’clock. The passenger train smashed into the locomotive of section 3 of freight train No. 99 carrying 67 cars of coal north from the Kanawha valley. The freight train was stopped and the passenger train had reversed its engines in an effort to avoid collision.
    The passenger train is the one leaving Gallipolis at 7:03 a.m. between Gallipolis and Charleston. The train has just pulled out of Kanauga station and was on the approach of the New York Central’s river bridge when the collision occurred. Engineers of the two trains saw each other too late to avoid the accident. Although the freight train was was brought to a standstill, the passenger train engineer was unable to stop, and the passenger train engine climbed the front of the freight locomotive, putting the front end of the passenger locomotive about five feet above the rails. The engine tender was telescoped onto the passenger train’s cab, crushing both men. The freight train engineer and fireman jumped from their cab when they saw that collision was inevitable and escaped injury. Fireman Callahan of the passenger train was attempting to jump out of the engineer’s side of the cab when he was crushed by the telescoping tender. Engineer Thomas was fouled among his own levers after reversing the engine and was unable to extricate himself before the smash came.
    P. A. Thomas, the injured passenger engineer, was taken to Holzer Hospital where his condition was considered to be very critical. One leg had been crushed and other injuries about the head indicated that that had been crushed, and he was badly scalded from the escaping steam of his own locomotive. Traffic along the New York Central road here will be tied up until the wreckage can be removed and repairs made to the track. Besides the damage to the locomotive, several of the steel cars of freight . . .[The ink in the balance of the article had faded so badly that it could not be transcribed.]

     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 Culpeper 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 Cremeens pronounced the funeral sermon and Undertaker J. W. Stevers had charge of the burial in the church cemetery.

[Note: Newspaper unavailable, but official deat date is December 30, 1921; On Findagrave; wife Luella Gertrude Carter, 1854-1940; sons Herman L., 1874-1923; Charles Kenton, 1876-1964.]

Earl Campbell Dies at Smeltzer Home Here
Structural Steel Worker Succumbs to Heart Affection, Aged 42
    News of the death of Earl Campbell early this morning at the home of his father-in-law, Thomas Smeltzer, on lower Third Ave., came as a grievous shock to his countless friends. His passing was attributed to a heart affection from which he had suffered but a few weeks. It followed a siege of pneumonia this winter while he was employed at Buffalo, N.Y. He came home about three weeks ago, and though his physician had told him of the seriousness, neither he nor his close friends thought it would prove to be anything that rest and care would not correct. Apparently, he was getting along very well until yesterday, when his condition did not seem so good. His death occurred about 3 a.m.
    Born in Illinois 42 years ago, Mr. Campbell came here to work on the construction of the Silver Bridge. He was a structural iron worker. On July 15, 1928, he was married to Sydney Smeltzer and since that time, although his work had taken him to various parts of the country, he had called Gallipolis home. He was of a genial and companionable nature, made friends easily and had formed many close friendships here.
    In addition to his widow, he is survived by a brother, Joseph Campbell of Media, Ill., a close companion associated with him in his work, and two sisters, Mrs. George Stanley of Roseville, Ill. and Mrs. Anna Hutchinson of Akron. His mother, Mrs. Dan Campbell, died in Illinois about a year ago. He was a member of the Masons of Festus, Mo. and the Gallipolis Elks. No definite funeral arrangement have been made pending word from a brother in Oklahoma.

Earl Campbell’s Rites Are Set for 2 Saturday
    Funeral services for Earl Campbell will be held at 2 o’clock Saturday at Grace M. E. Church under Masonic auspices. Rev. W. Scott Westerman will officiate. Interment will be made in Mound Hill by Geo. J. Wetherholt & Sons. A brother of the decedent, Joseph Campbell of Dismay, Oklahoma is coming and for that reason, the time for the service is a day later than was first contemplated.  A delegation of Elks headed by Exalted Ruler Ed Judy will carry out the ritualistic service of the order Friday evening at the T. E. Smeltzer home, where Mr.  Campbell died. News of the passing of Earl Campbell early Wednesday morning was as surprising and shocking a death message as has been flashed about the city in many a year. Though friends were aware that he was convalescing from pneumonia contracted while he was working in Buffalo, and had come home to recuperate, none suspected there would be a sudden and fatal turn in his condition. He was of powerful build, lithe and muscular, a handsome exemplar of a man’s man. Four years ago, he was the Democratic nominee for sheriff and made a creditable race.

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.

IN MEMORY
     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 worthwhile, 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.

J. R. Campbell, Green Tp. Boy, Dies Suddenly
In Chemical Research, He Had Done Important Work for Coal Concerns
    James R. Campbell, 60, who was raised in the Fairfield community of Green Twp.,  . . . chemical research work in the coal industry, died at 10 o’clock Tuesday morning at his home on Loucks Ave. in Scottdale,  Westmoreland Co. Pa. The message of his passing came to Miss Sallie McCormick, a distant relative and lifelong acquaintance.
Scion of Old Family
    Later it was learned he died of a cerebral hemorrhage. To all of his old friends, the news came as a shock, for he appeared to be so rugged and healthy on his last but infrequent visits here. Others were aware of the fact that his health had been poor for several years. Decedent was a son of the late Ross Campbell and a grandson of the late Capt. James Campbell and is survived by one sister, Mrs. Paul Stephens of this city. He was born in Charles City, Iowa, but his boyhood was spent in Green Twp. He began teaching when but 15 years old . . .then entered Rio Grande and was graduated in 1890. He went to the Pittsburgh area to teach, but then entered the employ of the H. C. Frick Coke Co. As its chief chemist, he served that company for 20 years, the Hudson Coal Company in the same capacity for five years, and in the sales department of Koppers Rheinauer Co. for five years. At the time of his death, he was in the sales department of the Island Creek Coal Company with headquarters in Cincinnati.
    Campbell was a member of the Presbyterian Church of Scottdale and was a member of the Shrine and Knights Templars of Greensburg. He was also a member of the American Association of Mechanical Engineers and also of the Eastern States Blast Furnace and Coke Oven Association.
    He is survived by his wife, a native of Cincinnati, whom he had met when she was here with her father, a contractor. There are three sons and one daughter, James R. who is in business in Charleston, W. Va.; Homer, a singer in Hollywood; Thomas, a medical student at Philadelphia; and Dorothy, a student at William & Mary College. At odd times in late years, Mr. Campbell had gathered data on the genealogy of the Campbell and Ross families.

Campbell, Jim [James Bodkins Campbell]

Jim Campbell, 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 Court House 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, 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 had 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 his job as janitor for the Columbus and Southern Ohio Electric Company a year or so ago, but that concern [company] provided him a pension, and he did not want [for anything]. When his illness became hopeless a few days ago, a colored man was engaged to remain with him and take care of him.
    Funeral services 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 Street Cemetery by F. J. Entsminger.
    Jim was born a slave on the plantation of Joe Alexander in Monroe Co. W. Va. (then Va.) 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 may go or you may stay.” Some elected to go north. They were given an old warhorse, which they took to Lewisburg, 20 miles away, and sold the horse to a white man headed for Charleston
[W.Va.] 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 boarded 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 riverbank, men were putting in the foundation of the Riverview Hotel, long since abandoned. In the years that followed, Jim worked on the packets, but for 36 years before he retired he had been an employee of J. C. McNealy. He had been married four times, and he had a way with women, it was often said. Only one child was born of these marriages, a son Gaston, and he died at birth.
    Jim’s correct surname was Bodkins. “My father, Tom Bodkins, was a bad nigger,” Jim often explained, and for that reason was sold. Jim was a brother of the late Levi Campbell and a half-brother of the late Henry Alexander. Another full brother, Floyd, when last heard from many years ago, was an inmate of an Illinois asylum. Harry Alexander of Third Ave. is the nearest relative, and as far as known, the only living relative. Mrs. Alexander was James’s guardian. Peace to your ashes, Jim.

[Note: From death certificate full name James Bodkins Campbell; date of birth January 15, 1852; date of death November 3, 1938; father James Bodkins.]

Gallia Man Dies in Columbus
Claimed to Be Penniless. Had $100. Body Brought Home for Funeral.
     A tale of how a 65 year old Gallia county man begged for a night lodging when he had almost $100 in his possession was unfolded today by police who were probing the death of John S. Campbell of Thurman. The man was found dead in the rooming house of Mrs. Lola Hunter here yesterday. The woman said that the man had begged for a night's lodging and that she had allowed him to sleep in a spare bedroom.
     When he failed to put in an appearance yesterday morning, Mrs. Hunter said, she investigated and found him dead. Police were called and they said they found $91.35 in the man's pockets. Death was due to suffocation. Coroner J.A. Murphy said that the man's life was taken by the heat from a stove which had been turned on to an unusual high degree.
     The remains of Mr. Campbell were brought here Tuesday and taken to Salem Cemetery near Gage for burial by George J. Wetherholt and Sons.

Campbell, Ross

Sudden Death of Ross Campbell

Falls Dead From Heart Disease on Court Street in the Early Morning Hours
    Our community this morning was shocked to hear that Mr. Ross Campbell, the carpenter, had been found dead on Court Street about five o’clock Thursday morning by William Mayes, who happened to be passing. The body was yet warm and lay only a few feet from the curb where he had apparently tried to cross the street, first falling on his knees and then his body going to the pavement. Dr. Mack, Coroner, was summoned, and his verdict was death from a stroke of apoplexy. Hayward’s ambulance was sent for, and the body was taken to the undertaking rooms. It will be taken to the home of his brother-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Calvin Carter on Fourth Ave. near the Academy.
    Mr. Campbell had rooms opposite the Landthorn Hotel where he lodged and boarded. He and Mr. Frank Bolte, and perhaps others, were engaged in remodeling the block of Miss Nan Deardorff on State Street, and he had been trying to do some carpenter work for Mr. Lew Grube between working hours. Wednesday evening, he complained of not feeling well and as if he had been overheated or overworked. It is known that he arose very early, before breakfast at the hotel, not having been able to sleep well. He went to the hotel too early for breakfast, and it is supposed, started for Mr. Grube’s and was on his way there when he fell, Mr. Grube living at 70 Court Street. The funeral services will be conducted at Mt. Zion Church by Rev. John W. McCormick at 11 o’clock Sunday morning, and the burial to be at the same place by Hayward.
    Mr. Campbell was a son of the late Sheriff James Campbell and Sarah Beck, and was born on July 4, 1848. His parents are both dead but he is survived by his sisters Mrs. Calvin Carter and Miss Zelda, who makes her home with her sisters, and Mrs. Laura Rodgers. He was united in marriage with Miss Emily Beck, of Iowa, who has been dead for about 27 years. By her he had two children, Prof. James R. Campbell of Scottdale, Pa., chemist at a large iron and steel factory, and Mrs. Stevens, wife of Paul Stevens of the O.H.E. of this city. Mr. Campbell was born out near Pleasant Hill, in Green Twp. and was one of the brightest and most capable of the young men of his day. He was good hearted, honest and industrious and a skillful workman. He was well liked by everyone. Fifty years ago, he was a classmate of Charley Hutsinpillar of Ironton, and Dr. Simeon Hutsinpillar of Berkley, Calif., the latter here on a visit, only leaving for home yesterday. The Doctor always tried to meet Mr. Campbell when here and was very fond of him, as were in fact all of his acquaintances, who will everywhere regret his death.

Canaday, Cassius M. C.

Sad Death
Mr. Naaman Canaday’s Infant Son Falls From an Upper Window and is Killed
     An accident that brought the most poignant sorrow to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Naaman Canaday happened at about 4 o’clock Thursday afternoon.
     Mrs. Canaday, her daughter, Miss Blanche Canaday, and a Mrs. Osborn were up stairs at their home at Island Side, engaged in cleaning house. Their infant son, Cassius M. C. Canaday, two years old the 20th, of next June, was playing about under their very eyes, but in one unguarded moment he darted to a window that had been raised, and which came nearly to the floor, lost his balance as he turned to run away from it and fell backwards to the pavement below, just as Miss Blanche was rushing forward to seize him.
     He turned over in falling, his little skirts going over his face, which saved it from disfiguration, but the skull of the front part of the head was badly fractured, and the little fellow knew nothing more in this life, passing away six hours later. The fall was from twelve to fourteen feet. It was a very attractive child, and was fairly idolized by the household, it being the first in many years, and the heart of every one will go out in sympathy to the bereaved parents.
     The funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m., Saturday, at the family residence, by Rev. A. J. Hawk, the interment by Wetherholt following at the Pine street cemetery.

Canaday, Naaman Reuben

N. R. Canaday, Aged, Retired Grocer, Dies
Nearly All His Life Was Spent About Corner Of Sycamore And First Ave.
     Naaman R. Canaday, dean of Gallia county grocers at the time of his retirement Jan. 1, 1938, died at 1:30 this morning at his home on Island Side. He was 85 years old last May 27.
     His retirement was forced when he fell and broke his hip and since that time he had been bedfast, and except perhaps for an occasional interval, his infirmities steadily increased. And his passing occasioned no surprise to those who had tenderly ministered to him during his prolonged invalidism.
Stuck To His Last
     For more than 60 years he conducted a grocery at First and Sycamore, a record not previously attained in this county, it is believed and he lived next door during all that period.
     Mr. Canaday was born in Old Virginia, a descendant of a slave-owning progenitor and a son of Joshua and Lydia Canaday. Before the Civil War and when but a child he came to Gallipolis with his parents, who did not believe in slavery and wished to live apart from those who did believe in it. On reaching manhood’s estate, Mr. Canaday married Edna Abbott. She died Aug. 6, 1921.
     Surviving him are a son and a daughter, Mrs. Blanche Lee, wife of Joe Lee, and Naaman Canaday; nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, and one brother, Pleasant Canaday of Columbus. Descendent was a member of the Episcopal church and of the Knights of Pythias.
     Interment will be made in Pine St. cemetery, but the funeral arrangements were not completed early this afternoon. Hayward will have charge.
     Mr. Canaday was a pleasant, genial man, tenderly devoted to his loved ones, and he had many friends and few or no enemies.

W. H. Miller, of Grace M. E. Church, of which Mr. Canaday was a member.
     Mr. Canaday left here last October in perfect health, except this his eyes were bothering him very much. Sometime during the winter or spring he was stricken with paralysis, with which he lingered along when he was taken to Dayton Hospital.
     He left a wife and sons, Will, Reuben and Fred of Wellsville, O., James and Scott of Xenia, and daughters Mrs. Bell Corning of Xenia, and Mrs. Myrtie Losey of Logansport, Ind., to mourn their loss. He also left brothers James C., Plezd and Naaman Canaday, merchant of this city, and sister Mrs. Wm. Kennett.

He was a stirring business man full of push and energy, clever, accommodating, honorable in his dealings, and a member of the Masonic fraternity, under whose direction he will be laid away in the Pine street cemetery to await the glorious morning of the resurrection.

Canaday, Thyra Lorain

Death of a Little Girl
     When Mrs. James H. Canaday died a few weeks ago, she left two little boys and two little girls. Since the death of Mrs. Canaday, at least for a month past, he has been living in his old home just above the old Canaday store at the corner of Second and Spruce street, his wife’s sister and his wife’s brother, Harry Benham, living with him and Miss Benham taking care of the children, and all getting along nicely under the circumstances.
     The little girl that died Wednesday afternoon at 3 o’clock was the third child and would have been three years old next January. Her name was Thyra Lorain. She had always been a delicate child and the day before membranous croup developed and though everything possible was done for her, she passed away in twenty-four hours. She was a bright, pretty child and her death following so soon after the death of her mother is a very sad event to the family.
     Her funeral services will be conducted at the house by Rev. L. L. Magee, Friday afternoon, the interment following at Pine Street cemetery by Hayward & Son.

[Note: 1895 – Nov. 14, 1898; Age 3 yrs. 10 mos. The photograph of the tombstone mistakenly shows the birth year as 1884 and it actually is 1894.]

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.
