r^\()LLTN CUASK SAriTII, yonngest son 
rr^V of Hiram and Anna Smitii, was born at 
Ij ^ tlie To, it of the western slo])e of tlie 
(irceii nionntuins, in iMonkton, Addison 
county, Wrm.iiit, March 12, 1827. On Ids 
motlier's side lie is the scventli in descent from 
A<iuila Chase, who emigrated from Knghuid to 
Massaidiusctts in ICaO. Tlu^ stock I'rom which 
he .iescMHle.l was prdilic in en.iiumt men, the 
greatest id' \\ hniii perli.aps was Salmon rortland 
Chase, who was t\vice electiul (TOvcrnor of Ohio, 
twice United States Senator, was Secretary of 
the Treasury in the cahiiu^t of Abraham Lincoln, 
and subsciiiiently Chief Justice of the Supreme 
Court of the United States. 

The subject of this sketcli has been both for- 

b.ith able and willing to absorb some of ih^e 
honor necessarily derived from so iinlile an an- 
cestry, and unhutuiiate in not being able, tlumgh 
willing, to contribute anything, as he says, to 
thocoiiimoii liind; but he has contributed con- 
siderable, as we shall see. 

His paternal grandparents had twelve children, 
—eleven sons and one daiighliu". In his lather's 
family were twosons and one daughter, namely : 
i'hebe, born in IS];) and died 7n childhood; 
I'hileiiion iJrown, born in 1821, and died in 
^[ksBonri in 1887; and Jlollin C., who alone 

in the spring of lN;i5 his father detcrniined 
to anli.'ipale Horace (ireeley's advice and -go 
West." Ac'onliiigly he with his buiiily and 
Household ellecls em'barke.l on a canal boat at 

Vergeiines, Vermont, which was towed by the 
steamboat Com. i\rel)onough down Otter creek 
six miles, to Lake Champlain, and then across 
that lake to Whitehall, New York, where they 
CMdi.anged the Commodore for mules, which 
(h-cw Ihem by way of the Chain]. lain canal to 
Troy, New York, thence by the F-rh^ canal to 

iiull'alo, and thence th 

■y '"i""^ I'y 

the stean 

Feimsylvania to the then village of Cleveland, 
Ohio, where they arrived in June, 1835, weary 

but undismayed, and all, save the youngest boy, 
lierce for the coming eonllict -with the almost 
unbroken forest. The family first settled in the 
township of JMayfield, Cuyahoga county, where 
they remained tii)-eo years, and then removed to 
iJedford in the same county. Here '\\v. Smith 
divided Ills time between liard work •• when he 
coidd not evade it," lie says-— on his father's 
farm, and hard study, which he seemed to relish 
more, in tlu^ district school, and in a select 
.school at Kedb.rd vill,-ig,., taught, at diderent 
p.-riods, by l'ndV..s,,rs Whipple, Adams and 
ilawley. Subseijuently he continued hiscdbirts 
to obtain the necessary (pialilical ions fiU' teach- 
iiii^r |,y attending the Twinsbnrg In.slitiite, a 
.somewhat noted .school at Twinsbnrg, Ohio, 
managed by Kev. Samuel JJissell, and later at 
.Vlleghany College, at Meadville, Pennsylvania. 

He read law two years under the direction of 
Samuel Adams, Esq., of Cleveland, and medi- 
cine one and a half years under Dr. S. U. Tar- 
bell, of iiedford, thi.s State, but abandoned the 
visions both of the woolsack and of a life as 
" aid U) tlie undertaker," and returned to his 
"lirst love," the school-room. 

He began his long career as a school master 
in the anliimn of FSbj, in the towiibhip of Or- 
ange, Cuy.-ihoga county, an.l ended it in the 
hi,-li ^rll(K.l in the township of Warrciisville, 
same county, bM-ty-three ye.ars later, having 
spent his entire life as a pedagogue in the two 
counties of (hiyahog.a and Summit. He has the 
satisfaction of knowing that he was almost al 
w.ays called, and generally cho.sen, never having 
applied bu- more than three in his life.

He embarked in business very early in life, 
first in connection witli navigation upon the 
Moliawk river and the Erie canal, from 1S22 
to 1S27, durine; a part of which period his home 
was at lltica, New York, and at kittle kails. 
Ho was for a timi^ in the employ of IJeorolf, 


I'v: Company, which w ; 


leading forwarding house of Schenectady. In 
1828 he resided at Whitehall, situated at the 
head of Lake Champlain, upon which lake he 

theChamplain canal. In 1S2'.I he renn.ved to 
the city of Albany, New Y,nk, where he he- 
came the manager for Derexaugh, jiutler iV: 
Company, and later the Thorn it Curtis Com- 
pany, of Utica, which was of the Utica line of 
canal boats, the lirst line of canal boats that 
ever mivigatiMl the I'.rie an<l llud.son

A year laler he found his health hiiling, by

advice of his physician to rt^tire, at least for a 
time, from a business career. He did so, and 
then traveled on horseback through thi! then 
new States of Indiana,, Michigan and 
Wisconsin. It was simply a tour that he nuule 
for the benefit of his hJalth, but during his 
visit to this Western country he not only re- 
gained his health but formed a liking b,r the 
climate and local advantages alforded by this 
region, and, especially liking Cleveland, he de- 
cided upon coming to this cily and making his 
future home here. His business in Cleveland 
consistiMl largi'ly in storing and foi'warding 
grain, and to a considerable extent (bir those 
days) he akso became interested in lake ship- 
ping, lieing the owner of several vessels which 
he operated in connection with his grain busi- 
ness. He built a steam elevator, which was the 
lirst brick building erected on tlie rivei- front.

coulil find to do, for his clotlies and board; for 
a time he was employed by Elijah Smith, who 
had ahk^l him in his younger days. He also 
li\ed with his uncle, Isaac IMoore, who was a 
goo.l man. In lMi:i he began work in a mill

riJR Y\^ NOATK, who has been for 
many years jirominently identified with 
the agricultural inlercs'ts of Hrccksville 
townsliip, is a niembei' of one of the ohi pioneer 
fiunilies of Cuyaho-u county, and is well worthy 
of representation in this volume. He was born 
in Ilowells, IMonnnTuth county, New Jersey, I 
September 0, 1821), a .son of William Van | 
Noate, a native of the same State, born .1 idy 
I'J, 17'.IS. of llollan.l descent. lie nnirried ' 
Ardaliss dimes, a native of New .ler-ey ami a 
daughter of 1 )avid Jones, and after this event 
took np his residence in .\[onmoiitli county, 
New Jersey. In the autumn of 1831 he was 
swept by the ti.le of cmigrati,m to the far West, 
as Ohio was then called, niakino- the journey by 
water to New York city, thence np the Hud- 
son river to Albany, thence by the lude canal 
to r.ullalo, and np'tlie lake to Cleveland on one 
,d- the luo sleamer- that Iravidcd IIh^ Lake at

i'laimlealer. He was a consistent member of 
the llaplist Church, and was hel.l in the highest 
(•steem by a wide circle of acijuaintanci's. As 
a pioneer he is entitled to the meed of praise 
due those conrageons souls who went before 
that the path might be made for the onward 
march of civilization. 

There were seven children in the family: 
Ann, wife of I! nmphrey (Jain, died at South

JIA.MES A. PATTO.X, who has been prom- 
I inently identilied with the horticultural 
-■ inteiests of thiscounty for some years, was 
born near the city of (ilasgovv, Scotland, No- 
vember 16, 1849. After emigrating to America 
he came to reside with his uncle, Alexander 
Patton, at Clenville, Ohio. Here he ^ecured a 
Tiractical education, and wlii'U he left school em- 
barked in the occupation of market-gardening 
and fruit-growing. His reputation lias been 
miule u])on the success that has attended his 
culture of the peach; he had 450 trees in bear- 
ing condition, and has gathered a heavy crop 
five out of six years, the yield in 18!J3 amount- 
ing to §l,2iJ8; t!ie crop of 1891 was 1,000 
hiisiiels, whi(di was the largest yield. This 
record proves that peach-gnnving is a possibil- 
ity in this latitude, and that \atui-e will beti-ay 
her secrets to the persistent ones. .Mr. i'atton's 



Doan street, one (]uarter of a mile from St.

nine years; his wife sui-vives him. They had 
born "to them fcur children : ilrs. Patton, Johu

fairs, but sup])orts the issues of the i;e|)\iblican 
])arty. Ho is in every sense a self-made^ man, 
and altliough he was denied the educational 
privileges aib^-ded the youth of this generation,

SAMUEL IIYDK A^fk^S, deceased, was 
\ born ill 'i'roy. New '^'ork, October 81, 
■ ^' 1831, and w'as brought to Ohio by his 
parents in 183:!, who soon settled in Olmstead, 
Cuyahoga county, which lnM:ame tludr home for 
the remainder of their live.-. lie was first 
married to Ellen M. Stev(_.|is, also of Olmstead, 
,Iuly3(), 1851: slie died August 31, ISCI), and 
h.. 'siiliM.pienlly married Amelia M. Mrrriam, 
of Dover, in that lowii^liip, on August 'I'.K 

ISOl. They began their married life on the 
place that is now known as the old homestead 
farm, and had eleven children, of whom six are

Mr. Ames enlisted in the war of the rebellion, 
being assigned to the One llumlred and Third 
Ohio \^)luiiteer Infantry. /\ftcr alxjut two 
months spent in camp near Cleveland, Ohio, he 
was assigned to the One Hundred and Twenty- 
fourth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, with which he 
served to the close of the great conflict. Twelve 
hundred men had enlisted in tlie One Hundred 
an<l Third, which was more than the quota, 
and therefore two companies were assigned as 
A and H of the One Hundred and Twenty- 
fourth. Leaving his wife and infant daughter, 
(wlio died before his return), he went into camp, 
and from well known ability and experience in 
his own neighborhood as a good liand to take care 
of the sick, he was appointed nurse there, and in 
the tiehl he was freijuently employed in the hos- 
pitiil. Isaac llurdy, of Perea, Ohio, who was 
in the same company, thus speaks of him: "I 
never saw his superior for coolness in the time 
of danger. With several others, I lay wounded 
in the field hospital, unable to move. Comrade 
Ames was nursing us. T'he i-ebels wouhl shell 
the camp at intervals and a shell with a burn- 
ing fuse rolled in at the door of the tent. We 
all lay breathless with suspense. The deadly 
missile might explode at any moment and do 
dreadful work. Put our cool-headed nurse 
picked up an old shovel and rolled the shell 
away out of doors, remarking, 'There! that 
can't hurt anybody now.' lie was a good sol- 
dier and a good citi/.en, a kind and provident 
head of his family, and his memory will never 
perish in the hearts of friends and family." 

His health began to fail in 1890. He was a 
patient sufferer until October 13, 181)3, when 
ills life left his body, at his liome in Olmstead. 
His funeral was held October 17, under the 
auspices of Olmstead Post, No. 031, (i. A. \l., 
of which he liad been a m(*mber. Olmstead

TlEPTirA ir. WADE, inventor and capital- 
K I ist, WHS hoi-n in Seneca comity, New York, 
V/-' Aneu>t 11, ISll. a son of Jeptha AVade. 
lli^ father was a civil eii.i;-ineer and surveyor hy 
Iji'.d'cssion, hut he was deprived by death in 
early vouth of ]iatei-nal cai-e and gnidance. His 
first serious occupation was learning the carpen- 
ter; he al.~u imide clocks, and musical insti-u- 
in-jiits, on which he perlV.rnied with much skill, 
and developed a o-enins t'oi- mechanics, lie was 
an e.xcellent shot, and as commander of the 
militia he was the mf)st expei-t marksman of 
four hundred men in the ranks. 7\t the arre of 
twenty-one yeai's he hecume the owner of a laro;e 
sash and blind factory, but after three years' e.\- 
perien.'e c.mcluded ilial hi,, talents were not 
suit.'.l to transactions in the commercial world, 
llavino ;i decided taste for all branches of art, 
he determined to study |,oilrait painlino, ;,,id 
with the celcbraled Kamlall I'alnicr as his in 

enviable re]3Utation throughout Louisiana, New 
York and Micingan. lie was hut little over 
thirty years of age when he became interested 
in the discoveries of 1 )aguerre. Assisted only 

the printed 

n' he studied out the 
metlHMl, and to.dc the lirst daguerreotype ever 
made west of New Y.n'k. Ilaviim sulV.Tcd in 
health on account of clo>e coniiiiement, he be- 
gan looking h.r some occupation that 
would take him into the open air. The mystery 
of a message Hashed from Washingt.m toV.alti- 
more was just then creating great e.xcitemont in 
both llie commercial and scientilic world. Mr. 
^Vade was then in New Oi'leans, but returned 
to Detroit, .Michigan, and began the study of 
the principles underlying the invention. Shortly 
after he commence<l the constiaiction of a line 
along the Michigan Central IJailroati, opened 
and etjuipped the Jackson office, and acted as 
..perator ami manager. After a time he entere.l 
the held as a builder of lines, meeting with 
nniny discouragements in the imperfections of 
the inventions. He himself invented an in- 
snlator, still bearing his name, which overcame 
many difficulties. He was the first to inclose a 
submarine cable in ii'on armor; this experi- 
ment was nuide across the ]\[ississippi river at 
St. Lonis, and to its success is due the existenccf 
of the entire cable system of the world. 

When the Western I'nion Telegraph Com- 
pany was fornu'd by the consolidation of nnuiy 
snndl lines, ^fr. Wa-le was ma.le general nnin- 
ager, and to him, more than to any other man, 
is due the credit for the construction of the 
Trans-continental Eaihvay; it was his energy, 
foresight and judgment that conceived and cui 
ried into operation the I'acitic Telegrajih from 
St. Louis to San iM-ancisco, bi'inging the isolated 
gold h.'ek.u-s into communication with the Kast- 
ern wmhl, and thus attracting the attention of 
caj)italists and enterprising business men. The 
location of the liiu^ and the resjionsibility of its 
construction were tnrneil over to him; an<l he 
labored with indefat en.'rgy and /..'al until 
the last .lake was cTriven. I'mler hi,. di,v<;t

JjOHX B. COWLE, treasurer of the Cleve- 
K I land Dry Dock Company, was boi'n in Pol- 
^' ton, Lancastershire, Kngland, September 10,

practi<:ally identical appliances to those used in 
Denver. ' I^ravin- this mad partially completed 
Mr. Short went t.) St. Louis, iMiss..uri, in ISHS,

a year with success, this system was cventnidly 
displaced by an extensive cable system which

has recently invented and pateutcMl an (dectric 
motor which .Iocs away with the ■^^ear attacli-

old Lower paja-r mill, tlien devoted to the nian- 
ufactiire of straw paper, witli a tliirty-foiir-iiich 
machine, became the Imsiiiess manager and re- 
huilt the ,-tructiire and added to its capacity, 
enaljling the company also to manufacture 
manila and Hour-sack paper. In 18()'J or 1870 
Mr. Tratt sold liis interest to John Bleasdale, 
and the firm name hccamu I'arkor, Po|)e & 
Company, in 1S71 },\v. I'arker sold his intei- 
est, and the company's name became I'ojie & 
IJIeasdaie. This company increased the v(duine 
of production from 1,500 pounds a day to 
5,000, and made paper bags. In the spring,' of 
1875 Mr. IV.p.. s,dd out to ^\v. lUeasdale, who 
operated the mill until the following autumn, 
when lie nraile an assignment to V.. W. Force. 
]\Ir. Pope, being the jirincipal creditor, organ- 
izcil a joint-stock company known as "The 
('hagi'in I'alls Paper Company," and th(;y pur- 
chased tli(t property. In the same year Mr. 

dent, and after some months Mr. Pope jnir- 

chased the stock of the original railroad com- 
pany and its lionds b)r himself and associates, 
and was elected pr(^si<lent. He had the |)rop- 
erty sold at public auction, and in the interest 
of himself and • associati:s purchased it, they 
liaving orgaiu/.ed the Chagrin Falls and South- 
ern Ilailroad (Company. Mr. Pope was presi- 
dent until 1885. 

His business enterprises were generally suc- 
cessful; but the mill at New Castle was burned 
in the fall of 1SS3 wilh all its contents, with

■oj,e, with partners. 

at New Castle, Pennsylvania, of a capacity of 
about 8,000 pounds a day, and he had the su- 
perintendency of the mill, meanwhile having 
also the management of the old (Chagrin I'alls 
ostablishmetit. In 187U, in company with ten 
other men, he built the railroad from Chagrin 
Falls to Solon, he becoming cdndrman of the 
construction company. In lS80 the pi'csident, 
Mr. Keid,and (ieneral .Manager Wa<ldell .d' the 
raili'oad company undertook to take possession 
of the road without fiillilling their contract, 
when Mr. {'ofm the movement and 
"threw him>elf int. i the breach," taking posses- 
sion of the locomotive an.l contnil of the en- 
gineer and holding the train until his associates 
an,l other trustworthy men came to his a.ssist- 
ance; and the ti-ain was put upon its regular 
run. Presi.leiit Uei.l and Manager Waddoll 
were ejected until thi^y should pay their fare; 
an ap|eal was taken to the courts l.y the presi- 

it was found that the business at Chagrin Falls 
was unsucccssfid, and Mr. Pope jilaced iiis en- 
tires pro|)erty in the hainls of a committee of 
three of his I'reilitors for the protection of those 
who had befrh-nded him and the (Chagrin Falls 
Paper Company. This was done during the 
lii.-^t part of .lanmiry, 18S.1. 

7\fter being thrown out of business Mr. Pope 
started out on the r.,ad for the Cleveland Win- 
dow-Shade Company, wc^ll knowing (hat the 
\:a-V of employment would injure the useful- 
ness of any man. In July of tlu' same year he 
met tlm president of tlu' .Marietta it North 
Georgia Uailroad (Jomi>any, who made him an 
ott'ei' to handle their securities in the markets, 
which was accepted, and he commenced opera- 
tions in September. Associating himself with 
a number of genllemen, he repaireil to New 
York city to negotiate the securities, and within 
a year arranged for the si.le of the enti re railroad 
property, and it pa,.>ed into oilier hand,- but 
during this time heals., secured the business of 
handling the pi-o|ierty of two other roads, - one 
in ()hi(, and one in Virginia, effecting con- 
tracts between the pi'csidents of the twocom- 
paides and representatives of London capital- 
ists. Vov that pur[)ose he went to New York 
city to arrange for the constiuiction of over 500 
iiiihis of track, the contracts amounting to 
about S13,50(),00(); but the contractors from 
London faih'd to carry out their agreements: 
after about two years' labor they'^failed for 
about S250,()()0.

\ 11 Vjl LLIAM W. (lALIIOUN, name 
V/Vy^ is well known in connection with tim 
""' horticultural int.Mests of Cuyahoga 
county, was boiai at l!ca\er Dam, Kric, county, 
Pennsylvania, January ID, lS:i8. His parents, 
John C.and I',.lly (Conn ) Calhoun, were natives 
of .\(^w Vork and IVnnsylvania respccli v.dy ; 
the father was a car[icnter and joiner by trade, 
.and followed this vocati<in all bis lib'. lie was 
asoldi.'riii the war of IS I'i, and was discharged 
in llullalo after that city had brcn burned, "in 

IS It he removed to Ohio, and there died at the 
age of cighty-lwo years; his wife is also de- 
ceased. They reart'd a family of nine children, 
.seven of whom still .survive. ' 

Our subject was engaged in gardening and 
huckstering in this c.Minty when there was a call 
bjr men to go to (be front in <lef(Mise of the 
Nation's ilag. Uesponding to that call be en- 
listed in Mattery i. l^rst Ohio Light Artillery. 

later he was at the extreme right at Chancellm'S- 
ville, where In^ loade<i the first piece fii'ed there, 
lie was transferred to the Twentieth Cnnii tlu; 
Eleventh Army Corps, and was .afterward in the 
siege of Chattanooga and the Atlanta campaiini. 
lie left Sherman before the famous march to 
the sea was begun, as lie was in another wing of 
the army. AVIien hostilities ceased ho was at 
Dalton, Cieorgia; he was honorably discharged 
at Chatlano.iga in .Inne, ISH.-,, and .s.ion alU'r- 
w.'ird arrived home. He was twice wouihIcI 
with bullets, but recei\eil a more serious injury 
from a falling cannon. Uiittery I was sidd to 
be the only battei-y that dismounted their 
cannon ill drill. This greatly plea.sed General 
Schurz, and he pronii.seii the battery a crri,at 
honor. This lioiioi' later jiroved to be the privi- 
lege of firing the salute to President Lincoln 
when be viewed the troops of the army of the 
Potomac. Prior to the campaign of (iettysburg 
the IroojiS were called out for iiispuction by 
(ieneral Sclnirz. No. 1 piece, weighing \;^\{) 
pounds, was attended by \\\ W.Calhoun and 
JMorris- Porter. While 'holding the piece in a 
perpendicular position, wailing for the order to 
dismount, the cannon tipped and doubled Mr. 
Calhoun to the earth. He was then sent to the 
hospital at I'rederi.d. City, wher(^ he remainefl 
several days. The injury to his back which he 
then received is said by doctoi's to be the cause 
of locomotor ataxia, from which he now greatly 
suifers. .After his r.^turn home he resumed his 
old occupation of gardening.

FJKKDIiiiKIK (iUOliK, one of the leading 
market ganleners of Cuyahoga county, is 
-. a native of (iermany, born in 1837. His 
[larents, .lohn and .Mary (Smith) (ir.jb<>, were 
also natives of the '• Katlierland," ijut Ixjth are 
now deceased. They reared a family of live 
chiklren, two of whom siir\'ive — Haniia, the 
wife of JM-aiik Miller, and the subject of this 
notice. At the age of twenty-four years Mr. 
Grobe was nnite<l in marriage to .Miss Henrietta 
Hartwig, the daughter of Fred ilartwig, de-

ad\-anced age of eighty years. 

In the spring of ISOl Mr. (Irobe emigrated 
to the United States, and settled in Cleveland, 
Ohio. 'J'lie lirst two years lie was engaged in 
market gardening, and the ne.\t two years he 
was emjiloyed in a brick -yard. I'y that time 
ho had accumulated sulllcient means to start an 
inilopendent business, and he accordingly rented 
a piece of land, which lu^ cultivated thirteen 
years. He then bought a tract of si,\- acres, to 
which he added live acres, both jilaces being 
well imjiroved with substantial buihlings; the 
sum of .Sli,0(H) was considered an exorbitant 
]jrice for the lirst tract, but the results have 
(juite justilie<l the outlay. He makes a specialty 
of berry culturt', jiroducing some of the finest 
varieties grown in this latitude; he also raises 
early vcfgetables, which command a ready sale in 
Cleveland. His success in life is ilue solely to 
his own untiring efforts, his industry and strict

and alway.s rendering satisfaction tu his em- 
pluyei's, he gave piMinise id' miieli nioi-e than an 
ordinary futiii'e. 

diOSElMI A. DAV, an honored resident of 
I Knclid t.,wnship, was horn April U, 1S43, 
— ' in (Jullinw(jod, on the place he now oc- 
cupies. His HiaiiiHatlier, lienjaniin Day, was 
born in Now Jersey, and moved to \'an lluren, 
Washington county, Pennsylvania, wheie he 
followed agricultural pnr.Miits ami in connection 
ran a snud'l ilistillery. In June, IsU, he came 
to Cuyahoj,r:i county, in advance of his family, 
and took 30U acres ,d' land from the Connecticut 
Land Company. lie also took a lot at the cor- 
ner of Seneca and Superior streets, in CIe\e- 
land, when there were only three houst's in the 
place. The latter he sold, to aid in pa)'ment 
for the 3(J0-acro purchase. Jle then had no 
thought of the great future of Cleveland, as the 
lake usually kept the sand drifted into the 
mouth of the river to so great an extent that no 
liailjor facilities could i-easonably be hoped for. 
It is related that he, in company with William 
Hale and Thonuis I). Crosley, hearin^^r on Sep- 
tember 1(1, ISl:!, a noise as of the tiring of 
heavy gui:s. wont t(j the lake and hoard the roai' 
of the famous hattle of Lake Krie, where I'erry,

which case tlu^ settlers in Cuyahoga county 
would leave their new homes. 

A year later Mi'. Hcnjamin Day brought his 
family from i'cnnsyl vania. The iirst year his 
tax on the :i(l(l .-icivs was .SL2(), and he often re 

marked in later years that it cost him a greater 
etl'ort to raise that amount than any ta,\ he ever 
paid. This he raised by reducing 'the forest to 
black salts, this being' th.; (udy product that 
woidd command cash, and he had to market it 
at Dutralo. At an early day he built a small 
sawmill on his place, the iron for which he 
hauled with an ox team from I'ittsbnrg. lie 
walked all the way from Pennsylvania, carrying 
upon his back the grafts for the first orcliard 
])lanted in this section. One variety is now 
known as the " Day Harvest." The fruit from 
this orchard he used to sell at Cleveland, by the 

He married Nancy .Andrews, a native of Wash- 
ington county, Pennsyhania, and they had 
three sons and four dauglitei's, namely: liob- 
ert, Hiram, Floris, Phoebe, Catherine, Jlargaret 
an. I Delilah. Phoebe nuirried Iirst a IM r. Hanna 
and secondly a man name.l Wier; ^Lirgaret 
died when a young woman; Delilah married 
rirst Samuel Cainningham, of AVayne county, 
and secondly D. ( !. .McFarland, o'f the same 
county, aiKJ is now a widow living in Cleve- 
land; Catherine married Hiram Mcllratli; 
Hiram, the father of our subject and the only 
s(jn of Penjaniin Day now li\'ing, is now i-e- 
sidiiig on the old homestead.

whose name lieads this sketch, eidisted in IJat-

the Iievolutionary war, as was also his grand- 
father. The latter was killed at the battle of 
Stonington, Connecticut, and his name ajipears 
on the nionumeni at that [ilace, which contains 
the names of the heroes who fell at that battle. 
I'eris j'.urrows' father was a farmer of Connect-

During this last employment his business

of this clinrch tluiy liavo lieeii niitlil'iil luid d(;- 
voted I'or iniuiy yours. U]>ri(rlil and honorul)lo 
in all liis dealings, ]\[r. Carlisle condncts Ids 
business by methods which coiniiiend him to the 
favor and confidence of the ti'ade, and he is 
justly regarded as one of Cleveland's most 
worthy and influential citizens. 

John Carlisle, Sr., was a native of Ireland, 
who came to America in the latter part of the 
eighteenth century, atul it is presumed settled 
ill Tennsylvania. lie came to Chillicothe in 
17'.)8, while this State was yet one of the Ter- 
ritoi-ies, and settled there. He was a ])ioneei' 
merchant, having a main store in Chillicothe, 
and lii-ancli stoi'cs in sui'munding towns. lie 
,,l,taiiied all his goods fniiii I'lnladelpliia over 
the mountains, and in his trips hack and f<,rtli 
, he trijvele.l on liors-^liark. lie did an extensive 
liiisiness for that day, anil towar<l the close of 
life f<ir a nuiiil)er of years was elected and re- 
elected to the important office of Commissioner 
of lioss county, Ohio. His re-election for sev- 
eral terms speaks in unmistakable terms of the 
high esteem in which he was held for his official 
sei-vices well rendered in a place of public trust. 
lie was well and favorably known for many 
years over the southern portion of Ohio. In 
the matter of diess, he loved the fashions of 
other days, (^tc, wore knee bu(d<les of jiure 
silver, as were worn in Colonial times. '^lK^-e 
knee Imekles are still in possession of tlie fam- 
ily. The First l'resl,yterian Chnreh of Cliilli- 
cot.lie, Ohio, had a debt, hanging ov(M- it for 
many years which the society could not li(|ui- 
date. Mr. Carlisle paid the debt fi'om his own 
purse, and presenteil the same free of debt to 
the Presbyterian Church nuunbers of Chilli- 
cothe. He was for many years a meiriber of 
the Presbyterian Church, liis wife, too, was 
one of the pillars of the same (diurch. She was 
a g(!ncrons, kind-hearted, charitable Christian 
woman, fully living u|) to the preceplH u\ the 
gospel and jiossessing all the (pialities (d' noblest 

ktWHl by a large circle of acquaintances. Tiio 
John Carlisle ](ew in that church was reserved 
for them for many years in token of his many 

kind and courteous services rendered. 

The nine children born to John Carlisle, Sr., 
and wife are as follows: Andrew, deceased; 
William, deceased; John, deceased; Eleanor '. 
Ann, deceased; Henry Nelson, deceased; Kliza- 
beth, widow of the late liev. Irwin Carson, for 
many years pastor of the Presbyterian Church 
of Chillicothe, Ohio; Lucy, an invalid for many 
years; Julia, deceased, who was the wife of 
Samuel P. Officer: she died in the twenty-third 
year of her age; Meade Woodson, the youngest. 

]\r. W. Carlisle's father was an ardent poli- 
tician and a great admirer of Henry Clay, with 
wliom he was intimately acquainted, and our 
subject has in his possession, signed by Henry ^ 
Clay, Sijcretary of State, a passport dated Jan- 
uary 25, 1827, also a letter to an influential 
fiieiid, highly commending him as a friend and 
an acquaintance of many years' standing, when 
]\Ir. Carlisle visited INIexico. On April 4, 1807, 
the fifth year of the independence of Ohio, he 
received a commission as Captain of Ohio mili- 
tia. Said document is yet well preserved and 
ill the possession of our subject. John Carlisle, , 
Sr., died in Chillicothe, Ohio, July 19, 1847, at 
the ripe old age of seventy-six years. His wife 
dit^l January 28, ISI'J, aged sixty- two years.

played a fondness for stock, and when he was 
only fifteen years old commenced speculating in 
cattle and hogs. When ho was eighteen he be- 

' gan business for himself, farming and buying 
and selling stock, and at the age of twenty he 
launched out as an aiictioniKU-, responding to 

■ calls from various places tlircnighout the county.

for being the most successful auctioneer in the 
(•(iiinty. ills stock business increased to such 
an extent that in 1890 he found it necessary to 
build his present stables. These stables have a 
cajiacity of forty head of horses. ]!e annually

yVu.nist r,, 1S2:{. 

The father of oui' subject, the late David 
llerrington, was a native of (Jtsego county, 
New York-, whence he came to Ohio in the fall 
of 1820. This long and wearisome journey to 
the new and slightly developed se.'timi of the 
linion was made on foot, an. 1 in the light of the 
conditions prevailing in that same section to-day 
it is almost impossible to imagine the scene 
which must have presented itself to this en- 
ergetic and coui'ageoHS pioneer. lie reached 
Cuyahoga county in due time and there he re- 
mained during the following winter. In the 
spi'ing he i-eturmuj to his home in Otsego 
county, but in 1822, with his wife and one 
child, he again set forth for the Western Re- 
sei-ve, this time with the intention of settling 
permanently and establishing a new home in 
Cuyahoga county. The trip on this occasion 
was tedious in the extreme, being made witli 
ox teams, which ti'ansported the little family 
and all their woi-ldly jiossessions. They were 
compelled to foi'cl or swim the swollen streams 
along the route, and through the wliole dis- 
tance they found only two streams which were 
spanned by bridges. Arriving at their desti- 
nation they settled in Middlebnrg township, 
where tliey remained until the early spring of 
1824, when tlu^y removed to Rockport town- 
ship and settled on the farm whore our Bubject 
now resides. The maiden name of David Iler- 
lington's wife was Alma Card. These honored 
pioneers both passed their remaining days in 
liockport township, where the father's death 
occurred September 21, 1849, and the mother's 
April 12, 1881. They had seven children, 
namely: William, Lewis B., Elijah D., Daniel, 
Lucy, Horatio and Martin. 

"When I^ewis B. was about six months old his 
parents removed to liockport township, and here 
lie grew to maniiood, receiving his educational 
training and assisting in the routine duties of 
tiie farm which lias always been liis home, and 
to whose cultivation and improvement he has 
devoted himself for many years, lie owns 
ninc^ty-three acres of land, the place being one 
of the most attractive and ])roduetive in the

a liiieral supporter.

[rV ALPII A. JAMES. —The early history 
^^ of the New England States develops the 
fact that the James family was one of 
much prominence, its representative 
members having been conspicuous for their high 
attainments, their social position and their 
power as factors in various governmental func- 
tions. Of the New York branch of this family 
the subject of this review is evidently a de- 
scendant, and as a I'epresentative resident of 
Parma townshiji, where his entire life has been 
passed, it is most congruous that he be ac- 
corded particular attention in this connection. 
He is a son of the late ]\[atthew James, who, 
with his family, emigi-ated to Ohio from Staten 
Island, New York, in the spring of 1841. The 
maiden name of our subject's mother was Mai-y 
Moles. After reaching Ohio the ])areuts settled 
in Parma tciwuehip, (!uyahtiga ccninfy, where; 
they passed the remainder of Iheir lives, de- 

to vc 

a fine farm and gaining the highest 
of resjji^ct and esteem in the com- 
1 which thciy wore permitted to attain 
ble age, the demise of the father oc- 
curring April 2N, l.S7rj, and that of the nmlliei-, 
November 1;J, 1877. They had a family of ten 
children, si.x sons and four daughtesrs, of whom 
tlie subject of this sketch was the youngest. 

lialpli A. James was born on Staten Island, 
New York, April 12, 1841, and was but three 
months of age when his {)arents started on their 
long and weary journey to Ohio, lie grew to 
manhood on the old farm in Parma township, 
and to farming ojterations his time has been de- 
voted from his youth up. During the progress 
of the late civil war he was for several months 
in the employ of the Government as a mechanic. 

Mr. James was married December 13, 1877, 
to Miss Carrie Bidduiph, who was born in 
Cleveland, Ohio, January 3, 1856. They have 
four children, Addie C, Ualj.h A., Neva L., and 
Oliver J. James. 

The fine farm owned by Mr. James comprises 
100 acres of most fertile and desirable land, the 
same being under a high state of cultivation 
and supplied with convenient and substantial 
buildings. The present handsome residence 
was Iniilt to replace the one wliicii was destroyed 
l)y fire March 31, 1890, entailing a loss of 
several thousand dollars. 

In his political proclivities Mr. James is a 
staunch Pepublican, and in local affairs of a 
p)olitical and general public nature ho has been 
closely identified with the progressive element, 
having been called upon to .serve as Trustee and 
to hold other township offices of importance. 
Possessed of excellent executive ability and 
manifesting the closest fidelity to all trusts im- 
posed, it is needless to say that he has pi-oved a 




liar ofHcial in such caj)acities as ho has 

by b; 

Protestant Episcoj)al 
has not neglected the 
made for him, having

George Parrish was l)(.irn in Virginia in 1818. 
His ancestors wei-e of l-'reneh origin, who fell 
out of till' ranks of the Uevolutionnry armies, 
and li.^came settlers, and conse.juently are un- 
numbered among the lirst families of the Old 
Dominion State. Among this band of 
!''i'.^nclimen, was a Parrish, the paternal ancestor 
of our subject. One of his descendants, jirob- 
ably ason,John Parrish, served under General 
Hull in the war of 1812, and was surrendered 
by that cowardly ofKcer, with his whole army at 
Detroit. When the war closed this sturdy 
patriot returned to Virginia, and there pursued 
his favoi-ite vocation, that of farming. He 
married a .Miss Prown wdiile at home on a fur- 



Py this union tweh'c 

children, eight sons and four .laughters, were 
born, (ieori^e, our subject's father, Iteing the 

George Parrisli manded, in I'utnam county, 
Miss Parbara Moneysmith, a daughter of 
Samuel Moneysniitli, of (u'rman origin, who 
(/ame from Penn.'^ylvania to Ohio. Their chil- 
.Ireii were: D. P., d.rease.l, wlu. was in the 
Kourteonth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was 
the (d.^venth man disable.l while su|iporting the 
colors at Chi.diamanga, dying from the .dfec.ts u\ 
his injuries in IHIJC; Wi^lliam P., killed at the 
se.a.nd battle of Corinth; A. M.; and Mrs. 
P. P. lielpman .d' Deliance, Ohio. 

A. J\I. Parrish was kept at farm work until 
he was fourteen years of age, when he acted on 
the advice of Horace Greeley, and went West, 
spending one summer on the plains. In 1869, 
iMr. Parrish engaged in the boot and shoe biisi- 
at Kansas City, Missouri, the style of tiie firm 
being A. ,]. Noi'iiian tV; Company. This firm 
existed until 1873, when Mr. i'arrish retire.l 
and became a eommercial traveler, with heail- 
.piartei-s at P.u-hester, New York, his iioiisc 
being Pehn i*c \'onng, nuinufacturers of boots 
anil shoes. His wanderings as a " Knight of 
the Grip " covered a period of eleven years, ex- 
tending over Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Mis- 
souri. Pebruary 1, 1884, he resigned Ids posi- 
tion, and was married on the Gtli of the following 
mouth to Mrs. Malinda Conelly, of Wooster, 
Ohio, the builder and of the Aridu^^ 
House, tlie lea.ling hotel of the city. Mr. Par- 
rish, as a natural consequence of the mari-iage, 
became a partner in the management of this 
popular resort, and by reason of his genial and 
affable nature, and his e.\tensi\'e acrpiaintance 
among commercial men, he was a most valuable 
ac.piisition to it. December 1, 1881), Mr. and 
Mrs. I'ari'ish decided to retire from active busi- 
ness, and live in the enjoyment of their years of 
rewarded labor. June 1, 1892, Mr. Parrish- 
aceepteil his present position, merely as an op- 
jiort unity for engaging something to absorb 
attention from passing time. 

Politically, Mr. Parrish is a Ilepublican, and 
was presi.lent of tlie Wooster Council four years. 
lie is a ]n-ominent and active member of the

grated to Cleveland, Ohio, and with courage and 
bravery took up their life upon the frontier. 
After living in diiferent localities about two 
years, they settled in East Kockport, now Lake- 
wood, where the family has remained ever since. 
The father died in 1841, aged fifty years; the 
mother survived until ls79, when she passed 
away at the advanced age of eightv--ix ve.ivs. 
They reared a family of =ix cliiMrcn: Adam

a practical education 'in the primitive log 
schoolho\ise of the dir-trict. and received a

His marriage to Miss Margaret Kyle occurred 
at Steiibenville, Ohio, Marcii 9, 1848. Mrs. 
Wagar is a native of Scotland, born at Kilbride, 
July 25, 1818, and came to America in 1843.

thur li. Bailey, has one child, Morrison AVagar. 
The family is prominently identified with the 
Xew Jerusalem (Swedenborgian) Church, to 
whose support they contribute most generously 
of their time and means. 

Mr. Wagar began life as a schoolteacher. 
Perhaps the most valuable efforts he has made 
have been in behalf of education for the masses. 
Realizing the increasing demands that were be- 
ing made upon the coming generation, he has 
strongly favored elevation of the standard, and 
has encouraged every advance movement that 
has been made in intellectual circles. For eight 
years he was Seho.j! Treasurer, atui daring this 
time gave s[>ecial attention to the subject ot 
educatir.n in all its phages. 

Adlierino- to the principles of the Deino- 
eratic partv. Mr. AVagar has taken an active in- 
terest in local politics, and has been called to 
>erve in various offices of trust and responsibii-

A man of ability aud deep integrity, lie lias 
made an indelible inipress upon the history of 
the commnnity with which he has been so 
closely identihed, an iiiipi'ess which is alike a 
credit to his ancestoi-s and a precious legacy to 
his prosperity. 

BAltTIl OLOM EAV STOC K ER.— The sub- 
ject of this sketcli has had a somewhat 
' varied experience, and to enter into the 

minutiie of his life history would render interest- 
ing results, his experience having been quite 
outside the ordinary and prosaic lines. We are 
permitted, however, to merely touch upoTi the 
tnore salient points in biography within the 
coufities of a work of this sort and in the case at 
hand no exception can consistently be made, no 
matter how strong the inclination. Mr.Stocker 
stands to-day as one of the substantial and pros- 
perous farmers of Rockport Hamlet, a man re- 
spected and esteemed in the community, whcie 
he has resided for so many years. 

Our subject was born in Switzerland, Janu- 
ary 2, 1833, and in his native land he passed 
the first nineteen years of liis life, having de- 
voted his youthful years to the dairying busi- 
ness, in which line of occupation he has con- 
tinued, with certain intermissions, until the 
present time. A young man of much vitality 
and ambition, he early became imbned with a 
spirit of adventure, — a spirit tempered, how- 
ever, with excellent judgment. In 1852 the 
young man left home and friends and set boldly 
forth to try his fortunes in the New World. 
Upon his arrival in America he proceeded at 
once to Ohio, remaining for one year in Colum- 
biana county, and then came to Cuyahoga county, 
locating at Brooklyn, whei-e he was employed in 
the dairy business for-twn and one-half years. 
Still looking for new fields of exjierience and 
adventure, he then went to the State of Michi- 
gan, whei-(i he i'oiuid cinployiiKint on a farm for 
a period of about eight mouths. After this 

bad eh 



Wisconsin, working in the pineries for about 
oneinonth, and then engaging in the somewhat 
hazardous business of rafting logs an<l lumber 
on the Mississippi river. In this occupation 
and in steainboating he found employment un- 
til the outbreak of the civil war, when with a 
true loyalty for his adopted country, he enlisted 
for service at St. Louis, Missouri, as a member 
of the Third Missouri Regiment of Volunteer 
Infantry. He remained in the ranks until his 
three months' term of enlistment had expired, 
when he again enlisted in a company of Mis- 
souri cavali'y, but was ti'ansferied a month later 
to the gunboat Pittsburg, which was in service 
on the Mississippi river. On this boat he 
served for one year, after which he was honor- 
al)ly discharged. 

I [is war experience ended he returned to 
Cuyahoga county and turned his attention once 
more to peaceful occupations, being employed 
at dairy work in Brooklyn for about two and 
one- half years. He then effected the purchase 
of the farm where he now lives, in Rockport 
Hamlet. Under his careful supervision the 
place has been brought into a high state of cul- 
tivation, while convenient and substantial build- 
ings have been erected, the appearance of the 
farm betokening thrift and prosperity on the 
part of the proprietor. The farm comprises 
forty-nine acres and very naturally Mr. Stocker 
devotes the major portion of his time and atten- 
tion to that business with whose details he is 
thoroughly familiar and for whose successful 
conducting no man could he better qualified, 
namely dairying. 

Mr. Stocker's marriage was consummated on 
on the 10th of May,v.l8G6, in Brooklyn town- 
ship, Cuyahoga county, when he was united to 
Miss Mary Krumweide, a native of Hanover, 
(iermany, where she was born March 21, 1S48, 
They have ten children, as follows: William, 
born August G, 1807, and married Sarah Feuch- 
ter; Lizzie A., born May I'J, 180!), is the wife 
of (!hristoj)licr Nyland; Sai-aii A., born October 
10, 1S70; Mary J., March 10, IK72; Emma M., 
December 5, 1S7;J; iMank L., July 2U, 1^75;

FJ P. SlUrMAKER, superintendent of tlie 
public schools at Cliagrin Falls, Ohio, is 
-^ a native of this State, born near Gallon,

in Berks county, Pennsylvania, one of a family 
of four sons and three daughters of John and 
Catharine Shumaker. He married Susan 
Walton, a daiif^'htcr of James and Catharine

born in 1818, in Lycoming county, Pennsyl- 
vania, one of a family of three sons and four 
daughters. 'J'licy removed to I'^airtield county, 
Ohio, in October, 18-11, and in September, 1S58, 
they went to reside on a farm near Gallon. Ten 
children were borii to them, four sons and six 
daucrliters, and nine still survive. Tiie father 
was a shoemaker by trade, and followed this 
calling in Ilarrisburg, Pennsylvania, for a 
number of years; he died in 1880. The mother, 
who is still living, a i-esident of Gallon, Craw-

graded and the standard materially elevated. 
Years of serious and unremitting labor have 
given him a place in the front raidvS of the ad- 
vanctal educators of the State. 

Although devoted to his jirofession our sub- 
ject finds time for other associations; he is a ,_ 
member of Golden Gate Lodge, No. 245, F. & , ,i

17, 1891; and Grace Marie, born September 2i3, 

\/l[AIlTIN L. HULL, who has been a res- ,<; 

/'jl ident of Cleveland since 1859, is one of .-. 

ii the oldest citizens. On ids first coming ,,. 
here he engaged in truck gardening 

and the raising of fruits, buying eleven acres >. 

of land in the vicinity known at that time as ^y 

Doan's Corners, which was afterward incorpor- r 

ated as East Cleveland, and still later taken into , 

the Cleveland corporation. The value of Mr. „ 

Hull's eleven acres had so increased up to 1870 ,. 

that in that year he divided it into allotments j^ 

of one acre each: nine acres lu! sold at $1,200 ,. 

each; two acres and the dwcdling house ho ro- j 

tained as a i-esidence. •- imm,.,-- h... ..rr,, ■ ;,,,,,.

About this time l\Ii-. Hull enil.aiked in tlio 
giisulino business. Iji'iiii^ soniowhat of ii "geii-

]iui|...M's; but, llol brill- a pra.'ti.'al liKvliairu', 
bo oin|,b,yo.l one ('. II. I'lontb'O, n UKU'li i iiist 
who iia.l a sliop iioaf his olli.;o, ami ho and Mr. 
Hull put the iiivoiition into practical use; and 
thus was made the first gasoline stove, in lS7)i. 
Mr. I'i'ontico was a poor man, and during the 
time of e\|)criinent in developing the stove Mr. 
Hull supported him and furnished material for 
the experiments. When a patent for this stove, 
was sought Mr. I^rentice showed his ingratitude 
by inducing ]\[r. Hull to allow him, inasmuch 
as he knew how to proceed, to make application 
i in his own name 

for the patent, which 

ntice the sole paten- 
■ stoves, which have 
becin called by some 

and wlien granted niai 
tee! Ile.M-c the Hull 
since become famous, 
the " Prentice '" patent. The same year, how- 
ever, ]\[r. Hull purchased ]\Ir. Prentice's inter- 
est, for !?500, went to IS'^ew York and ordered 
2,000 stove burners. Returning home, he 
manufactured and sold his invention alone up 
to ls7U, in which year a stock company was or- 
ganized, umler the firm name of "The Hull 
Vapor Stove Company," with D. A. Dangler 
as general manger, M. P. Clark president, and 
ilr. Hull as mechanical superintendent. With- 
in eighteen months $0,000 was declared in div- 
idends, but liow those dividends should be dis- 
tributed am()ng the stockholders liecame a seri- 
(jus (piestion, and the disj)ute ai-ising therefrom 
causeil tht! dissolution of the company. Then 
a new company was formed, with the same name, 
with ]\[r. Hull as owner of one quarter of the 
stock; but this company was not successful, and 
in 1880 Mr. Hull sold his interest. Since then 
he has continued in tlie manufacture of 
gasoline stoves ami other kinds of gasoline 
goo<ls, with success. 

i\Ir. Hull was born in the town of l.ititz, 
liancaster county, Pennsylvania, danuai-y 2."J, 
1823, a son of 'l)nnicl Hull, who spelled his 
name Holl, and who was Imuni in Pennsylvania 
in IT'.)."), of Swiss ancestry. Th.^ lirsl '.d' the 

family came to America in 1734: and settled in 
Lancaster county, Pennsylvania. Our subject's 
nnjtber's name before marriage was J>arbara 
Keib, and she also was Ikhii in the Iveystonc 
State, in 1803, of (ierman ancestors. In 1832 
]\lr. Hull's [)arcnt8 removed to Stark county, 
Ohio, settling on a farm, where their son, our 
subject, grew to nnvnhood. The father died in 
1871, and the mother in 1881, both living to a 
ripe old age, highly respected as good citizens. 
At the age of twenty-one Mr. Hull, wdiose 

ame heads this sketch 


and attended an academy in his nati\'e town. 
Returning to Ohio, he was for a few years en- 
gaged in teaching school. J.ater he became a 
clerk in a general store at Uniontown, Stark 
county, and then partner in the store until he 
came to Cleveland. 

His first trip to this city, in 1810, was at- 
tended by an interesting experience. He came 
here accompanied by a neighbor's son, on horse- 
back, the journey re(|uiring about all of day- 
light for one day. On arriving here they beiran 
to look for a swinging signboard with the pic- 
ture of George Washington upon it, or that of 
Thomas Jefferson, with the word " tavern;" but, 
failing to find sueli a signboard, they finally 
arrived at the east side of the square, where now 
stands the post office. They had got through the 
town, was and the land covered with timber and 
hazel brush. I^feeting a man, they imjuired of 
him where they could find a tavern. He pointed 
to one, which stood whei'e ikjw stands the I'or- 
est City House. Here they secured lodging for 
themselves and stabling for their horses. 

As their trip was made purely for the pur- 
pose of sight-seeing, the ncKt morning they 
stai'ted out to see the town, first goimr, however 
to the lake to see that broad expan.^e of water 
and the boats landed thei-e and in motion. Then 
they went all around town, finishing the tour 
by two o'clock in the afternoon, having seen 
about "all that there was worth seeing." They 
left for their homes, filk^d with j)ride, and 
thoughts how they would mak(! IIk; oIIici' boys 
open tludr eyes with wonder and their hearts

EDGAIl M. MERRICK, deceased, was for 
many years a well-known and highly re- 
1 spected citizen of Strongsville township, 

Cuyahoga county, Ohio. 

He was born at Sand Lake, New York, June 
23, 1800. In Sand Lake he spent the early 
part of his life, from there went to Buffalo and 
worked at the carpenter's trade, and several 
years later went to Mississippi, where he fol- 
lowed his trade for some five or si.x years. In 
the meantime his father, Justus Myrick, had 
moved from New York State to Cuyahoga 
county, Ohio, and had settled on a farm in 
Strongsville township. And here we pause to 
state that Edgar M. was the only one of that 
family who spelt his name Merrick. So when 
the subject of our sketch left Mississippi he 
came to Strongsville township, where his father 
had located. That was about 1810. Here ho 
purchased a tract of land and engaged in farm- 
ing operations in connection with his carpen- 
tering, and these occupations he followed dur- 
ino- the rest of his life, with the exception, how- 
ever, of his last few years, wdien lie was practi- 
cally retired. His death occurred September

Mrs. Merriek 

hecanie the |iarents of two children, , I o.-e[)h K. 
and Henry AV. 

Politically, ^\v. Merrick actc<l with the 
Democratic party, and during iiis aclive life 
took a ih^ep inteiest in local allairs. For a 
number of years Jlr. Merrick has l)cun a mem- 
ber of the Congreo-ational Church. 

IfSllAEL D. WAGAK, son of Mars and 
Keturah Wagar, was born February 21, 
J 1820, in Avon, then called Troy, Lorain 
county, Ohio, in a log cabin surrounded by a 
dense forest and within a stone's throw of the 
blue waters of J^ake Erie. AVhen Isi-ael was less 
than a year old the family moved to East Ilock- 
port, now Lakewood, whei-e lie has lived the 
most of his life. 

His early life was spent like most of the sons 
of pioneer families, in assisting to clear off the 
heavily tiniljered land, in order to convert it 
into a productive farm. His educational ad- 
vantages were restricted to the district school, 
together with an academic course, but his 
natural love of learning, ambition and wonder- 
ful menioi-y enabled him to surmount almost 
any difficulty. lie taught several terms of 
school, when a young man, and gave good satis- 
faction as a thorougii and interested teaciier. 
Born of intellectual parents, his father being an 
able mathematician and distinguished linguist, 
his mother a woman of unusual intelligence 
and fortitude, he inherited an ardent love for 
knowledge and investigation of the natural 
sciences. He takes a lively interest in all the 
vital questions of the day and is a great reader. 

On the Hrst day of the year 1843, he was 
uniteil in marriage to Elizalieth, daughter of 
Llichael and Isabella Fyle, who was born in 
Wayne county, September 7, 1822. A woman 
possessing beautiful traits of character, unself- 
ishness and true Cbrislian fortitude, she has 

endeared herself to the whole community in 
which she lives, and " her children arise up and 
call her blessed; her husband also, and he 
praiseth liei'." 

After his marriage, ^[r. Wagar settled on the 
land on which he now resides, and which after 
fifty years of cultivation, has been changed from 
wild foi-est to fertile iields, verdant meadows 
and fragrant vineyards. He has given his at- 
tention mostly to fai'ming and fruit-growing, 
and has dealt extensively in real estate. In 
business he is practical, conservative, far-seeing 
and seems to know when to buy and wlien to 
sell: people call him lucky. His dwelling is a 
spacious stone edifice of a pleasing architectural 

He has reared an interesting family of eight 
children, five daughters and three sons, all liv- 
ing at this time, namely: Lura M., wife of 
Dr. 0. D. Ashley, of Oleveland; Adah I., wife 
of M. G. Ihowne of Cleveland; John M., mar- 
ried to Harriet Hotchkiss and living on a wheat 
farm in North Dakota; Jessie A., wife of G. E. 
Loveland of Cleveland; George E., of Montana; 
Caroline D., wife of Dr. D. F. Baker of Cleve- 
land; and Alta E. and Charles W., both of 
whom leside at the old homestead. 

Born and reared in loyalty to the Whig party, 
]\Ir. Wagar cast his suffrage with that organiza- 
tion until 185(), when he ti-ansferrcd his allegi- 
ance to the J)emocratic party, flis counsel and 
advice are sought after in matters of impoi-tauce, 
and he enjoys the respect and confidence of his 
neighbors. He has served most acceptably as 
Justice of the Peace. 

In 1876 he spent several months in travel 
through Great I'ritain and the continent. Being 
a close observer of men and affairs, the trip was 
fraught with the most valuable and interesting 

His religious faith is broad and liberal. He 
believes that all men M'ill in the end be saved; 
that the eternal purposes of the Almighty will 
never bo thwarted or turned aside by his crea- 
tures; that "Ho is good to all and His tender 
mercies are over all his works;" that tho

to tivatiiient; that the wirkud by assori:it iua, 
iliscipliiie and piuiisliimuit, under the guidance 
of the Divine Wisdom, will in the end he saved. 
It is a dim suljje'rt, hnt any utliei- conclusion 
fails to satisfy the in(juii'ing and intelligent 
mind. '• If thou sliouldst mark iniquities, who 
could stand f ISelf-denial under Uod is the 
great jwwcr to reform t!ie world, and all creeds 
and docti'iues that do not teach and enl'oi'ce this 
will prove a failure. Second probation is a 
thing to be hoped foi- in keeping with the 
eternal titness of things. 

JMr. Wagar ascribes to ambition, industry, 
contentment and a firm reliance on the I)i\ine 
guidance to cany out the destiny that is as- 
signed to every one to perform with fidelity and 
to honor our calling. 

i\[r. Wagar has always enjoyed good health, 
]iever having called a physician, and is still 
bright and vigorous in his old age. He is one 
of tlie very few who remain that connect the 
early pioneer days with the j)resent. Jle has 
witnessed the wonderfid changes that have taken 
place. A 'dense forest, where the howl of the 
wolf and the screech of the panther have been 
heard, is now supplanted by the hum of the 
electric cars that pass by his door. He lias seen 
(Meveland grow from a small village with a few 
hundred inhabitants to a largo city with over 
300,000 inhabitants. 

After iifty years of the ch^sest and holiest 
associations, Mr. and Mrs. AVagar celebrated 
the anniversary of their marriage witli a golden 
^vedding, to which relatives and cherished 
friends wei'e bidden. Such hapj)y ])i'iviloges 
come to few in life. ]\[ay the touch of Time 
I'est lightly upon their venerable heads and the 
shadows fall gently on their declining days! 

CAPTAIN JOHN \',. HALL, one of the 
oldest navigators living in the city of 
Cleveland, was born in Sackett's Harbor, 
Jefferson county. New York, in April, 1838.

OLON WEIGHT SMITH was born in 
South Amherst, Massachusetts, February 
^S^^ 21, 1816, whore he live<l tlie first twelve 
years of his life. He then removed with his 
father's family, of which he is the eldest child, 
to Marion, Wayne county. New York, where 
they remained four years. In the spring of 
1832 the family emigrated to Ohio and settled 
iu Middleburg township, this county, on the 
farm where the subject of this sketch still re- 
sides, he having been at the time sixteen years 
old. For fourteen years they lived in a log 


'C ])lacc to a commo- 

dious frame dwelling. 

The country at that early date was covei-ed 
with an almost unbroken wood, with but few 
roads laid out. The i'agloy road was not 
chopped out, and was not made passal)le for 
teams until some years afterward. Mr. Smith 
helped to cut out and open up all the roads in 
the east part of the township, where he lives, 
running from the ])ike, the latter of whicii lie 
lias lived to see a tine paved a\-enue. 1I(^ car- 

rieii surveyor's chain and a\ in the sur\<eying 
of lots on each side of the jiike, from the I'arma 
line to the home of the late .\mi Lovejoy. This 
was in the year 1833, the lots having previously 
all been taken np. (^n the street were then lo- 
cated Messrs. Lebbens Pomeroy, Daniel Smith 
with his seven sons, (Ihaides Peebles, ilajor 
iJassett, Andrus (ireen, the Hutchinsons, Ful- 
lers and others, who soon gave to that [)art of 
the township quite a cultivated appeai'ance, 
transforming the dense forests into a beautiful 
laud of smilinii- njoadows and fields of wavin.r 

The country aljoundod 



Mr. Smith 
jne of the 

famous hunters of th(.)se early days, having 
bi'onght down a large number of deer, turkey 
and other game. One time he liad been gone 
from the house only thirty minutes when he re- 
turned having shot and secured two large deer. 
He is acquainted with much interesting general 
history of the early settlement of the township. 
As a rcisident of sixty-two years, he has wit- 
nessed the groat ehang(;3 transpiring in that 
time. He was a Trustee of the township six 
years, until he declined to serve longer. Has 
been a life-long and succe.ssful farmer, has al- 
ways been a stanch Republican, his first vote 
for pi'esident being cast for (leneral William 
Henry Hai-rison. 

His mother, whose maiden name was Nancy 
Williams, was boi'u in Easton, JVIassachusetts, 
May 30, 1794, and died in Middleburg, Ohio, 
March 24, 1890. She was remarkable for her 
healthful life and for her jileasing, happy dis- 
jiositiou. Although nearly ninety-six years of 
age, she passed away while yet in the heiglit of 
iier beauty and loveliness. 

His father, Daniel Smith, was liorn in Am- 
her..t, ^[as.achusetts, November lo, 1791, and 
died in Middleburg, July 17, 1866. He was a 
noted musician, was fife ]\tajor in the war of 
1812, also a well-known and popular shoe- 
maker in the early history of the township. 

The parents were both members of the Pres- 
byterian Church. They had nine children:

iMr. Cuyler was born at Rochester, New 
York, November 1, L842. He received his 
education in the jiublic schools of that city, go- 
ing into the railroad shops in 185S. His father, 
Cornelius Cuyler, was a stone cutter b',- trade, 
born in llochester in 17'J7, and died thert^ in 
1873. Ogtlensburg, New Yoi'k, was the origi- 
nal home of the family. It was tliei'e that our 
subject's gi-andfather, Thomas Cuyler, was born. 
He settled in llocbester when tiiere were so 
few houses it could hardly be called a village. 
The Cuylers came from the south of Ireland to 
Nova Scotia when all America was subject to 
tiie liritish crown. From Nova Scotia a branch 
of it drifted into New York. Hence the Ameri- 
can existence id' oiil' subject.

1 November 11, 1823, in Holstein, Ger- 
many, and came to Anu^rica in 1848, first set- 
tling on K'elly's Island, in Lake Erie, where he 
was instriimenlal in introducing grape culture 
and the witie industry. i\Iovingto Put-in-l?ay, 
he introduced grape culture there also. In this 
business he prospered at both places. In 1804 
he bought laud in Euclid township, wiiere also 
he surprised the people by his introduction of 
his favorite industiies, which proved far more 
pi-olitable than the crops the settlers had been 
raising, and since then they have arisen from 
poverty to conditions of comfort. At lirst Mr. 
Harms purchased oidy forty acres in this town- 
ship, and afterward continued to add to it from 
time to time until he had 200 acres. As to 
kimls of graj)e, he at first commenced with 
about 200 varieties, for trial, and at length 
found the following to l>e the most jirofitable: 
for white wine — Catawba, Delaware, Brighton

and May 21, 1S72, he iniirriod Iliilda Steak, of 
Sandusky, and of German descent. Her father, 
William Steuk, died in 1876, and her mother is 
still living, at Sandusky. Her parents were old 
settlors tliero. Her brother, E. L., is now en- 
gaged in the wine business. She lias one brother 
and two sisters. Mr. Harms' children were: 
Carl, born on Kelly Island; Louis, Julia and 
Richard, born at Put-in-Bay; and Hulda and 
Irnia, born in Euclid. The whole family reside 
in and around the old homestead. 

Mr. Harms was an industrious worker, and 
liis sons now carry on the wine business. He 
died August 21, 1S88, after a short illness. 
He was an enterprising man, exhibiting great 
interest in railroad extension and public educa- 
tion, but refused public office. He was the first 
to sink a well for natural gas in his vicinity, 
boring to the depth of 855 feet, just before bis 
death. His children were educated at home, 
liy private tutors, \intil ])repared for college. 

jp-jl tion from the place of one's nativity is a 
11 ^ subject of interest hardly less than the 
^ migration of ancient nations. Individual 

life is a perpetual struggle in the dark. One 
may know his birthplace, but no step in the 
pathway of life is the subject of foreknowledge, 
nor is the place of his grave prophetically re- 

In 1817 there landed in Pliiladelphia as im- 
migrants Johann Casper Buhrer from the prov- 
ince of Baden, and Anna Maria Miller from 
Stuttgart, Germany. They immediately re- 
paired to Greeusburg, Pennsylvania, where he 
had relatives, and were there married. They 
lived there something over a year, in which 
time they had a daughter, whom they named 
Catherine. In their passage across the ocean 
Mrs. Bulirer had made the acquaintance of some 
of her German sisters, for whom she entertained 
an alfiu'tionatc attachment, who were afterwards 

residents of Zoar, Ohio, and near whom she do- 
sired to live. Zoar was then and ever has been 
famed for its Society of Friends, called Separ- 
atists. To this place went Buhrer with his 
wife and child, and settled upon a farm near by, 
and here their thirtl child, Steplien Buhrer, the 
subject of this sketch, was born, Doeomber 20, 

Seventy years and more ago, Zoar with the 
region round about was wild, rough and cheer- 
less, but the industrious and thrifty German 
population by which it was mainly settled have 
changed its once gloomy aspects, and now it is 
among the fairest and we;dthiest agricultural 
towns of the State. But the father of Stephen 
Buhrer did not live to see this triumph of Ger- 
man industry, he having died in the late fall of 
1829, leaving his widow and two young chil- 
dren to make their way alone in the world. 
Two years before his death he had removed 
from his farm and lived in the village of Zoar. 

After his death his two children were bound 
to the Society until their majority. They were 
subjected to very severe discipline, as this ven- 
erable religious community exemplified their 
faith in the ancient adage of not spoiling the 
child by sparing the rod, and enforced the maxim 
with the utmost patriarchal severity upon the 
unhappy and helpless children. At this early 
age the child Stephen was put to work on the 
farm and in factories, and made to do such other 
work as he was scarcely able to perform, and so 
continued until his ninth year, when he was 
made to attend sheep in the vast pasture ranges 
of Zoar. For three years, in summer's lieat 
and winter's cold, the youthful shepherd of Zoar 
watched the flock by day and night also, when 
the stars twinkled, but no angelic glory shone 
around to cheer the lonely boy. 

At the age of twelve years he was placed in 
the Society's cooper shop, ostensibly to learn 
the art and mystery of coopering; at the same 
time, however, and at different periods and times, 
he did almost every other kind of work incident 
to the company's various industries, such as 
helping in the browiiijj and slaughtering de-

I'emember that he was priNileged to attend any 
school except Sunday-schools and evening 
schools after his tenth year, and after liis hard 
day's work was done. Xotwitlistanding hanl 
work, failing health, loneliness, discouragement 
and mental depression, the noble inherilance of 
the German iilood and brain enabled him at 
last to assert the rights of nature, and in IS-f-l-, 
at the ago of eighteen, he left the Society and 
came to Cleveland. Here tor something over a 
year he worked at coopering, but was so j)hysi- 
cally enfeebleil that he coiiKl hardly earn enough 
to pay his board. 

Finally, in IS-ti;, he enga^^ed himself to a 
business firm as a traveling man, and as such 
he traveled through western Ohio, Indiana and 

Iter of 1847 he 



by h 

■.ssed with th 

reality that the Zuar of his infancy and youth 
was not all of tlie earth, not all of Christian 
humanity, and but a dim semblance of heaven 
for fatherless children. His travels in the West, 
however, were cut short by the prevailing ma- 
larial fever of that early day. lie retraced his 
steps by I'ail as far as Detroit, which exhausted 
his last dollar, and he was necessitated to sell 
some article of wearing apparel to pay deck pas- 
sage on a steamboat for Cleveland, which he re- 
garded as ids home. For two months ho was 
sick and wholly incapacitated for labor, and. 



was about to b( 


the poor-lionse, when 
the city came forward and spoke words of encour- 
agement and ho])C, and, moreover, guaranteeing 
the payment of his board bill till his death or 
recovei'y. The inspiration of such fi-iendshij) 
was niedicin(^ alike to body and mind, and he 
was soon enabled to work at his Irad.^, whieh he 
di,l lur a year, hle.sscd with health an. I pn.s- 


perity. In tin 
the shipyard b. 
occupation as a eooprr. 

In 1S-1« he was united m marriage with Miss 
Eva Maria Schneider. They liad three children, 
one son and two dauf^hters, Jcjhn, ^^ary ami 
Lois, all now (ISDl) living. Early in IS,",!), he 
en^'aged, with a jKirtner, in the cuoperitig busi- 
ness, whieh they conducted three years, wlien 
he sold his interest to his partner. In 1858 he 

engaged in the bus 
fying of spirits, wl 


3 of 

from that time has been 
the business of his life. 

Something may be justly inferred regarding 
the public estinnition of the personal character 
and business capacity of ifr. IJiihrer when con- 
templating the eighteen years of his unblcssetl 
childhood and youth in tlie fields of Zoar, that 
at the age of twenty-nine years, and after only 
eleven years' citizenship in his adopted city, he 
was, in 1855, elected to tlie Council from one 
of the most jKipulous wanls for the full term of 
two years, and twice thereafter, in 18G3 and 
18(55, elected to the same olKce,— the last time 
without political opjiosilion. 

Durino- his second Councihuanic term the 
o-loomy cloud of the civil war was on. In this 
Mr. lluhrer was an earnest advocate of the one 
and inseparable Union, and an active participant 
in every movement to advance the cause, and 
but for a physical infirmity wdiieh precluded 
would have served in the ranks of the Union 
army on Southern battle-fields. Moreover, his 
duties as Councilman required iiis constant at- 
tention, and especially was his presence needed 
in his own ward, where a multitude of women 
and eliildren whose husbands an<l fathers had 
early volunteered, or later been drafted, some of 
whom had already fallen in battle, re.piired his 
friendly care and helpful hand. Twice was his 
ward subjected to draft, and would have had to 
submit to a third but for the energetic action 
of Councilman P>uhrer to prevent it, by largely 
contributing to tlu! i)ayment of bounties to vol- 
unteers. His ,lisbur.-,-ment of money for the 
domestic relief of sohli.'rb' families, and the

thoiisHiid and one other necessities incident to 
the ci\il war, woro ;dik-o judicioiis antl ouihtohs. 
In all this lie served the can.-e intinitely more 
eirectiially than lie eonld hy iiis single musket 

the battlo-lield,— li 

he b 


Iligldand bugle, "worth a tliotisand men." It 
waH dolliJtle^s in I'ecoj^riition of liis ini|)ortant 
services in his ward and in tlie city dnring ilie 
most gloomy days of the war, in his cainicity as 
Trustee, that he was again returned foi' llie third 
term, with unprecedented unanimity. The war 
had ceased, peace was restored, and his wai'd 
expressed its grateful sense of bcnehts received 
at his hanil during the four years' struggle. 

Hardly had his third Councilmanic term ex- 
pired, when, in A])ril, 1867, he was nonjinated 
and elected Mayor of Cleveland by a very lai-ge 
luHJority, notwithstanding ho did not belong to 
the then usually dominant political organiza- 
tion. His administration was eminently satis- 
factory, as conceded by all. He was devoted to 

id zealous ir 

)ublic dutiet 

lich there 

have been no superior examples. Unlike the 
present system of municipal management, with 
directors in charge of the several departments 
of the public business, the ]\Iayoralty was then 
no sinecure, nor was the official chair a seat for 
elegant lounging. Tiie only official colleagues 
of the mayor then were the city clerk — who was 
also auditor — and a ti'eaeni-er, and a board .of 
city improvinents, of which the mayor was chair- 
man, having in charge public works of great 
magnitude, and including large ex|)enditures of 
money. Ho was intrusted with the sole control 
and management of the large police force, ami 
therefore made responsible for its fidelity and 
efficiency, besides exercising a careful and con- 
stant supervision over lire and water, and every 
other department of the city govei-nment, with 
a view to the promotion of financial economy. 
The rigid discharge of duty which ho had re- 
cpiired of the police, and the avoidance at the 
same time of everything oppressive, or of the 
exercise of a seemingly undue ollicial severity, 
won alike their I'ogard and the public apprdba- 

It was duriiig this term that the Cleveland 
House of ('urrection and Work House was com- 
Iileted and |iut in .suc^e^sful o|)eralion, which 
was humanely intendeil to reform and reclaim, 
as well as to j)unish the vicious and the crimi- 
nal. In this ]\Iayor ]]uhrer took an active and 
leading jjart, as likewise he did in all gooil en- 
terprises of a public nature. Among the most 
honorable and distinguishing traits of his official 
character and conduct was his impartiality, 
freedom from favoritism and bigoted partisan- 
ship in the discharge of a public trust. Es- 
pecially was this characteristic manifested in 
his well-remembered hostility to those geniuses 
who pool their issues in '■ cliques " and '• rings " 
to develop the rich "placers" witliin the limits 
of the corporation, and seek to have their drafts 
honored at the munici])al treasury. 

At the expiration of his olKcial term it was 
his earnest desire to be relievid from public 
care, that he might resume his private business, 
already too long neglected, and which he confi- 
dently expected to do, as no one of his prede- 
cessoi'S had e\-er been re-elected, but being 
I'enominated he felt it wouid seem ungrateful 
to decline; so in Ajiril, ISG'J, he again was 
elected Mayor, and this time by the unprece- 
dented majority of nearly 3,000. This public 
endorsement, especially at a time when his party 
was generally in the )ninority throughout the 
ytate, was to him alike gratifying and surpris- 
ing as it was to his neighbors and friends. This 
election made his name familiar throughout the 
State, and the Democratic party sought to avail 
itself of his local popularity. Therefore, in 
the autumn of the same yeai-, Mr. Buhrer's 
name was placed on the ticket for State Treas- 
urer, which bore at the head the name of George 
II. Pendleton for Governor. History records, 
however, that neither of these gentlemen re- 
ceived a majority. 

Again, in April, 1871, weary and enfeebled 
by official service, and feeling that he had had 
more than the usual share of the public consid- 
(M'ation anil jKilitical favors awarded to any cili-

enter tlie Mayoralty race fur a third term, he 
uiodl respectfully and emphatically declined. 
Notwithstanding his protest he was nominated; 
and now the Kepublican party determined to 
resinno its ancient prerogatives and power. 
Twice, thoy said, they iiad let the Democrats 
defeat tlie " grand old party," by reason of the 
personal popularity of tiieir candidate. IJc'sides, 
it was Presidential year and tiiey ninst this time 
have a Repnblican mayor, cost what it would. 
So tliey buckled on their armor, and with the aid 
of a few mercenary troops, deserters, anil disap- 
]>ointed contractors, ever incident to municipal 
politics, Mr. Euhrer lost in his third campaign 
by a small majoi'ity. 

Still his party would not let him rest. Twice 
thoy nominated him for County Treasurer with- 
out his knowledge, and kept his name upon the 
ticket notwithstanding his protest. The ticket 
of course was but a mere formality in the county, 
where the majority of tiie dominant party was 
ordinarily from four to seven thousand. 

In 1874 he was again returned to the City 
Council, though his ward was largely Jvepiibli- 
can, for the reason niainly that some very 
important measures were pending which his 
presence there would promote. Tlie Finance 
Committee and the Board of Improvements ab- 
sorbed almost his entire time during the two 
years' service. Some time thereafter he re- 
ceived the appointment and served with public 
satisfaction on the Board of AVoi-k-IIouse Di- 
rectors, lie was over in advance in t!ie advo- 
cacy of benelicial measures. Among such was 
a JLomo for Wayward Children, who ncjeded the 
care and protection of the public, lie was the 
first who officially recommended the high level 
bridge, the mighty structure that spans the 
valley of the Cuyahoga river, known as the 
Superior street viaduct. 

During both terms of his mayoralty, Mr. 
BuluHu- strove to make a model police force. 
There was then no police board, and the foicc 
•was left on his hands and under his uiulisjjutcd 
conti-ol. lie labored to secure the |iulili(; con- 
fiil(Mi('o in tli(> wcjrkiii'r force, and hui'ceudcd. 

To promote social intercourse and cheer their . 
manly spirits, Mayor Biihrer annually gave, at ^ 
his own expense, to the entire force, on lYew j 
Year's Day, a public dinner, i'ctween the 
Mayor and his men mutual good will ever pro- 
vailed, and many of his best olKcers and veterans . 
are still (ISDi) on the force. 

It is a sul)jcct worthy of remark, as being 
quite unusual in modern political life, that Mr. 
Buhrer never in his life solicited a nomination 
to an office, while many offices have sought him 
and some with success. lie is a gentleman mod- 
est and unassuming while efficient and forceful, 
in affairs of business or public duties. Ilis 
wife, who had long been an invalid and a subject 
of his tonderest care, died in the early spring- 
time of 1889. One year later he married Mar- 
guerite Paterson, a lady of Cleveland, whose 
birth place was New York. 

'jf^jEV. E. ]\I. O'CALLAGIIAN, who is 
f^ pastor of St. Colman's Catholic Church, 
Jj ^ on Gordon avenue, Cleveland, was born 
V in county Cork, Ireland, May i, 1831. 

Ilis parents were Timothy and Julia (Foley) 
O'Callaghan, both natives of Ireland. The 
fiither, a farmer by occupation, in 1854 re- 
moved to America and located in Detroit, Mich- 
igan, where ho soon afterward died, at the age 
of about seventy years. The mother died in 
1839, in Ireland, at the age of about fifty 

The subject of this sketch, the youngest of 
six children, of whom three are living, was edu- 
cated in Ireland, and at the ago of twenty years, 
in 1851, he came to America, stopping in De-

[[ff ARRY L. VAIL, Clerk of the Common 
|pi| Pleas Court of Cuyahoga county, and for 
11 4i some years a practicing attorney at the 
'^' Cleveland bar, was born at what is now 

No. 331 Central avenue, this city, in 1858. His 
ancestors are of good old Uevolutionary stock, 
he being a descendant of one of Washington's 
most able generals. Harry's father was .1 udge 
Isaac Carpenter Vail, deceased, born at White 
Plains, New York, in 1830. Judge Vail se- 
cured a liberal education in the State of his 
birth, and when a yuuth of eighteen found hi.s 
way iulo Cuyuhogn c.unty, an,! lur a linio was 

emjtioyed in teaching school at Royalton, this 
county. He studied law and was admitted to the 
bar in 1852. He was a good lawyer and gained 
pojiularity rapidly. 

In 1858 was elected Police Judge of the city, 
and was re-elected in 1800, and had not yet 
ci)niplot(Ml his second tcirm when his patriotism 
prompt<!d him to resign his oiKce and oifer his 
services to the Federal Government. He was 
commissioned Captain of Company A, One 
Hundred and Third Ohio Volunteer Infantry, 
his command being afterward a part of the 
Army of the Cumberland. He died at Dan- 
ville, Kentucky, August 10, 1863. 

Judge Vail was a gentleman of much native 
ability. In his training for the bar ho developed 
a splendid judicial mind. He sympathized with 
the unfortunate, but not to the extent of met- 
ing out to them anything short of exact justice. 

Judge Vail's father was Isaac Vail, a mer- 
chant of White Plains, New York, who married 
Ann Green Graham, born at Soraerstown, West- 
chester county, New York, June 10, 1802. 
Her father, Robert Graham, married Mary, a 
daughter of Benjamin Greene, a son of 'General 
Nathaniel Greene, the hero of many Revolu- 
tionary battles. Isaac Vail had an only child 
at his deatli, Judge I. C. Vail, father of our 
subject. Judge Vail married, in this county, 
liarbara, a daughter of John Van Husen from 
the ]\Iohawk Valley, of New York. The Van 
llnsens descended from the Holland Dutch who 
settled in Now Yoi'k when it was called New 
Netherlands. Two cliildren were born in the 
family of Judge and Mrs. Vail: Iza, now Mrs. 
Dr. S. W. Fowler of Delaware, Ohio; and 
Harry L. 

Harry attended J3rownell Street school in 
Cleveland, and the high school, preparing liim- 
self for entrance into the Ohio Wesleyan Uni- 
versity at Delaware. His first appearance in 
the University was in 1875. On account of his 
limited means ho was compelled to work his 
way thi'ough college, which he did, gradiuiting 
in 1870 as valedictorian of his class. About

Mr. I'iiilip iCorris, on ajiproachini;; the years 
of nianliood, engaged himself in the vcs.'-rel busi- 
ness oti the lakes, witli Oajitaiii "Wilson, for 
si.\teeii years. During this lime lie and his 
brother John purchased the coal interests of the 
estate of Davii] Morris, and proceeded to mine 
what coal there was left in the mines. In 1891 
Mr. Philip Morris sold his vessel interest to 
Captain Wilson, and, entering partnership with 
Captain John Mitchell and others, formed wdiat 
is known as the Mitcludl Steamship Company 
of Mentor, Ohio, of which :\rr. Morris is vice 
president and dirictor. 

He was mairic'd O.'tober 22, 1 ST'd, to Miss 
Sarah Illizabrt h Lane, a native of I'hiladelpliia 
and a daughter of William and .Janet (^Moore- 
head) Lane, of that city. Mr. Lane is a native 
of riiilad(dj)hia, and ]\Irs. Lane is a native of 
Lri^tnl, rennsylvania. ]\tr. Morris has four 
children: IClizabetli Disston, William Phil- 
pot, Harry Lane and Douglas. The family are 
attendants at and sujiporters of St. I'aurs 
Church, Protestant Episcopal. 

Mr. Morris' grandfather, AVilliam Philjiot, a 
native of England, was at one time a partner of 
David Tod, once Governor of Ohio, in the coal 
business at Briar Hill, which is now a part of 
Toungstown. Moving to Yonngstown in 1S4G, 
lie endeavored to forma furnace company, asso- 
eiatin- with bims.,1 f .lonat ban Warner and ..Ih- 

ers in organizing the "Ohio Iron k, Mining 
Company," now known as the •' Eagle Furnace 
(V)m[)any." At that time Mr. Phil|)ot opiiiiod 
and developed the Wertz and Manning i5riar 
Hill coal mines, 'i'he furnace was built for the 
purpose of smelting ir(jn ore with raw stone 
roal. The etpiipmiMit was hazardous and was 

cial and otherwise; but energy and enterprise of 
Mr. Philpot triumphed over all; he is a man of 
resolute disposition and practical good sense. 
He always was successful, for he seemed to 
know exactly the right course to take; and his 
integrity has always been iin(|uestioned, hia 
wiird as good as a bond and his promises always 
reliable. He died in Liberty township, Trum- 
bull county, June 2, 1851. His wife died in 
Cleveland, in August, 1805. 

He has a most pleasant home, and at his 
home, with its charming surroundings, he finds 
his greatest pleasure. 

Concerning his father, David ]\Iorris, we 
should add that the memory of his noble and 


ht life 

the hearts of those 

who knew him long after that of most person- 
ages of his time. His name will be lianded 
down to future generations as inseparably asso- 
ciated with all that is noble.

The same Sisters liave had also charge of Charity 
Hospital since its opening by Bishop Kappe, in 
1865. The hospital affords accommodations for 
about 100 patients, who are received without 
distinction as to creed or nationality. The in- 
stitution enjoys the confidence of the piiblic 
and has its f^jencroiis support, ranking atnotif 
tiio best appointed hospitals of the country. 

In close proximity to said Charity Hospital 
is the Lying-in-Hospital, also under the charge 
of those Sisters. It was established by Bishop 
Gihneur in 1873, and since its opening has done 
untold good to the unfortunates seeking and 
receiving shelter and care. At j)rcsent there 
are sixty foundlings and waifs receiving a 
motlier's care. 

The three above named institutions are tlie 
life's work of the Sisters of Charity in Cleve- 
land, and are most successfully managed by 

The superioress of these Sisters of Ciiarity is 
at present Mother Mary George, who was elected 
to her position on October 2, 1892, and has the 
general supervision of tlie institutions in charge 
of the Sisters, but has her residence at tlie 
mother-house of the community, located near 
Lakewood, a beautifid suburb of Cleveland. 

FHINEAS P. WRIGHT, Assistant Gen- 
eral Manager of the Lake Siiore & Mich- 
igan Southern Railway, was born in Her- 
kimer county, New York, February 12, 
1824. His father, a native of Keene, New 
Hampshire, was a saddler and harness-maker by 
trade: he died when Phineas P. was a mere lad. 
The mother, whose parents emigrated from 
Scotland to America, was married a second time, 
to Elias L. Rose of Niagara county. New York. 
The two families tlius connected removed to the 
Territory of Michigan, and settled at Bronson, 
Branch county; there tlio children were reared 
upon a farm, enjoying such educational privi- 
leges as were afforded by tlio three months' 
session of tlio district school. This was the ox- 

tent of Mr. Wright's opportunities, excepting 
the six months spent as a student in the La 
Grange Collegiate Institute, Ontario, La Grange 
county, Indiana. 

Arriving at the age of maturity he secured a 
position in the dry-goods store of Asa T. Groeii- 
dykc at Coldwater, Michigan, wliere he contin- 
ued until liis election to tiio ofiice of County 
Clerk of Branch county; he filled tiiis cilice, as 
well as that of Clerk of the Courts of Record 
and Register in Chancery, for six years, retiring 
January 1, 1855. He then resumed farming, 
and at the end of the next three years removed 
with his family to Linn county, Missouri. 
There he prepared a set of abstracts of title for 
the county, and embarked in the real-estate 
business,which he conducted until the com- 
mencement of the war of the Rebellion. He 
immediately thereafter resigned the ofiice of 
Mayor of the town of Linneus to which lie had 
been elected, and returned to Michigan, where he 
became the agent of the Michigan Southern & 
Northern Indiana Railroad Company at Cold- 
water. In the fall of 1865 lie took the position 
of track master of the La Porte division of said 
railroad. In the autumn of 1866 he was trans- 
ferred to the agency of the same company at 
Detroit. In January, 1870, he was promoted 
to the position of Superintendent of the Kala- 
mazoo division of the Lake Shore & Michigan 
Southern Railway. June 1, 1871, he was trans- 
ferred to the superintendency of the Buffalo 
division of the same railway. September 1, 
1873, he accepted the position of Superintend- 
ent of Transportation of the Erie Railway, with 
headquarters in New York city, serving in this 
capacity until October, 1881; he then returned 
to the Lake Shore & Michigan Southern Rail- 
way as General Superintendent, a position he 
held until January 1, 1892, when he was pro- 
moted to the position of Assistant General Man- 
ager, which he still fills. He has been in con- 
tinuous railroad service for thirty-three years, a 
record in itself that needs no commentary. 

Mr. AVright was united in marriage at Cold- 
water, Michigan, January 1, 1852, to Miss

JOHN P. SPENCER.— In the decease of 
Jtihn P. Spencer, which occurred on Au- 
gust 12, IS'JO, at his home in Kockport 
township, Cuyahoga county sustained the loss 
of one of its most worthy and respected citizens, 
lie was a native of Erookfield, Madison 
county, New York, wliere lie was born May 24, 
1805, to Jonathan and Molly (Jones) Spencer, 
the second of a family of eight children. Botii 
his fatlier and mother were natives of East 
Greenwich, Rhode Island, where the former was 
born December 6, 1778, and the latter on No- 
vember 27, 1781. Jonathan Spencer, the father, 
emigrated to Erookfield, Madison county, New 
York, in 1803, and settled on a farm. In early 
life he was a tanner and currier, and in later 
years engaged in shoemaking. In 1834 he re- 
moved to Olmsted Falls, Cuyahoga county, Ohio, 
where he died February 7, 1837. His wife's 
death occurred at the same place two years prior 
to his, namely, on February 10, 1835. 

Our subject passed his boyhood at home, 
assisting his father and attending the district 
sclio<d, where he received a good English edu- 
cation. [I|)on attaining his majority he started 
out on his own account to make his way in the 

world. He engaged in fai'iii woi'k during four 
seasons, and also during the winter months 
taught in the district scluiols of Rrooklield 
townshij) for two seasons. lie was indubtrious, 
economical and ambitious to have a homo of his 
own, and to this object bent all his energies. 
AVith a few liundred dollars saved fn.m his 
earnings, he left his native place in 1830, and 
turning his steps westward settled in Cuyahoga 
county, Ohio. There, in the southwestern part 
of Rock|)0rt township, he purchased a fertile 
tract of 125 acres, which at that time were 
covei'ed by the dense forest, and began the work 
of maldng for himself a home. Two years 
later, on the 13th of March, 1S32, he married 
Miss Electa M. Beach, who was born ]\lay 21, 
1811, at Norfolk, Litchfield county, Connecti- 
cut, to Junia and Hannah (Ingraham) Beach. 
She was a woman of most estimable qualities 
and much force of character, and throughout 
their happy married life of fifty-eight years she 
was a worthy helpmeet of her worthy husband. 
Her decease occurred on February 24, 180U. 
After having lived together for fifty years, they 
celebrated their golden wedding on the 13th of 
March, 1882, and were the recipients of many 
beautiful and appropriate presents, as tokens of 
affection and esteem. 

Mr. Spencer was a man of clear foresight, 
enei'gy and thrift. Independent, self-reliant 
and with a high sense of honor, ho made his 
way from hunililo circumstances to a position of 
influence among his fellow-citizens. He was a 
man of domestic tastes, simple in his habits and 
devoted to his family and friends. His chari- 
ties were bestowed with a generous hand. Un- 
der his hospitable roof were always help and 
good cheer for the needy, and no worthy person 
was ever turned from his door empty-handed. 
He was prosperous and by his thrift and indus- 
try accumulated an ample competency, which 
he used unselfishly. He at one time owned 
225 acres of land, but prior to his death dis- 
tributed all of it among his children. 

J\Ir. Spencer was a public-spirited man, and,

his aniliitioii. To do good and helji others was 
to him a noiile end. ^ Physically .Mr. Spencer 
was a well r,.rnie(l man, and few "wouhi accom- 
plish more in his LusinesH at middl.^ life than 
he; and he has relate-l that nnlil after the ago 
of seventy years lie had not called for the 
service of a jjjiysu'iaii on acconnt of illness for 
himself. One of the traits of his chaiacter was 
his love for cliildren; there were hut few whose 
conhdence he could not ohtain, and made them 
feel that in him they had a friend. Also his 
love for domestic nnimnls, who would come at 




In his native State lie was called to servo in 
the militia and served as an otficer in his com- 
pany, and afterward received a commission as 
Ensign from the then governor of New York, 
Martin Van Buren, and held it until he re- 
moved to Ohio. In politics he was a Demo- 
crat until the time of the Civil war, wdien lie 
identified himself with the Eepublican jiarty. 
He had liis choice wlio should hold oiiice, and 
exercised his right by voting at each succeeding 
election for the person or principle that seemed 
l)est. It is not known that he ever missed 
voting, after Iteing of legal age, at a general 
election during his long life. His sound judg- 
ment and high sense of honor were prominent 
characteristics, so that his counsels were often 
fought hy his neighbors and friends who hoii- 
oi-ed liim in his lifetime and revere his memory. 
To these atid to his family he left the best of all 
legacies, the influence and example of a noble, 
self-sacrificing life. 

There were born to TVIr. and Mi-s. Spencer six 
children. Of these Henry 1!., horn June 2-f, 
183;5; Mary U., born March 25, 1H35, was 
married November 27, ISo^, to James A. Pot-

[[JfKNRV P. SPENCER.— One of the 
Yr\ substantial and rejjresentative citizens of 
11 i Cuyahoga county, Ohio, is Henry P. 
' Spencer, of Pockport townshiji, and his 

life fitly illustrates what one may accomplish by 
pei'sistently following a fixed and honorable 
purpose. He comes of sturdy New England 
stock and inherits the manly qualities and vir- 
tues that characterized his worthy father, the 
late John P. Spencer, whose biographical sketch 
ajijiears on another p:ige of this volume. 

Henry P. Spencer was born on the 2J:th day 
of June, 1833, in Itockport township, in what 
is now known as " Rocky Eiver Hamlet." He 
was reared on the old homestead, and received 
a thorough F]nglish education in the common 
schools of his township, which were of unusu- 
ally high onler, and also studied for a time at 
Paldwin University at Rerea. After attaining 
his majority, he took a course of lectures at the 
Ohio Agricultural College then located at 
Cleveland, and which he now looks back upon 
with pleasure, and wishes that every young 
man could avail himself of the privileges and 
instruction which biich a course alfoi'ds. Ho 
has always been a man of alfairs with an in- 
quiring turn of mind and has ke[it himself well 
informed on matters of popular and current in- 
terest. With him education never ceases.

vitiiig study, the days are too short to learn it 
all. He occasioiially cuiitributes articles to 
some oJ: the leading jjcriodicals devoted to the 
subjects of agriculture, horticulture and science, 

gation and cxpei-inients. All his life he has 
hiul a Fcindiicss fur rniif -;_n'i>wing, inal<ing grajio 

as an authoi'ity in iiorticultural nuittei'S, as ho 
lias made numerous successful experiments in 
iiiti-odncing new vai'ieties of grapes. At the 
same time he gi\'es i^eneral farniiufr a full share 
of his time and attention. Following his agri- 
cultural and horticultni-al pursuits from an in- 
nate love of (hem, his constant study has been 
to secure the hii^rhygt and l)est results from his 
work. His linely improved and highly culti- 
vated lands bear ample testimony of the success 
of his methods. [n ac(juiring the land he now 
owns he commenced in a small way with a few 
acres, and has added to them as C(jnditions and 
circumstances seemed fa\-orable until he has be- 
come the owner of one hundred and ei<;hty 
(180) acres of fine land, forty acres of which 
lie in the township of Dover, in a beautiful and 
romantic situation on the soutli shore of Lake 
Erie, at a jdace known as Dover Bay Park, 
wliich has been found well adapted to growing 
the finest of grapes, to which a share of it is 

As a man and citizen Mr. Spencer has always 
held a high place in the esteem of all who have 
known him, and his fellow-citizens have hon- 
ored him with numerous positions of responsi- 
bility and trust, in all of which his conduct has 
been marked by the utmost fidelity, and he has 
acquitted hiniself with much credit and uni- 
versal satisfaction. Fie is a man of the highest 
integrity, prompt and careful; and in all his 
business transactions, as well as in every thing 
else, he "seeks to do unto others as ho would 
have others do unto him." His life has been 
one of unselftish devotion to his family and 
friends, and in all his social and other relations 
he bears himself as a bigh-min.led irentlonrm, 
whoso chief desire is to make the world liri-liter 

and better. Warmliearteil, alfable and genial, 
he attracts to himself many friends, and esteems 
it a pleasure to do for them. 

Mr. Spencer is an earnest advocate of all 
matters (if public interest, and contributes gen- 
erously of both time and money to further all 
movements calculated to inipiove and benefit 
the community. lie was one id' the pioneer 
movers in organizing the liock[)orl and Dovei' 
riank Koad Company, and became one of its 
iirst stockholders and directors, lie was after- 
wards Superintendent of the road for one year 
and treasurer for three years. This i-oad was a 
great advantage to the people along the lino 
and to the surrounding coiuitiy by ali'.>rding 
them better facilities for getting their jiroilucu 
to market. In j)olitical sentiment ]\Ir. Spencer 
is a zealous Republican and in his religious be- 
lief is liberal and broad-minded and cheerfully 
accords to othei-s that independence of thought 
and action that lie asks for himself. His has 
been an active lib', full of gooil works, and none 
deserNes more than be to be ranked among our 
intliiential and self-made men.

G. SIPIIEll. — America is so thorouglily 
cosmopolitan in the make-up of her popii- 
=i lace, representing all sorts and conditions 
of men from all sections of the globe, that 
it would be difhcnlt to determine with any 
degree of satisfaction as to which foreign nation 
has contributed the best element in our con- 
glomerate national fabric. It is, however, safe 
to t-ay that Clermany has gi\en us a large con- 
tintient of strong, honest, enternri^iiifr, intellect- 


ual and ])atriotic citizens, and 
much to the inlluenco of this element. 

The subject of this brief sketch now holds 
the responsible preferment as Dejtuty Treasurer 
of CJuyahoga county, ii position whoso holding 
stands in unmistakable evidence of his character 
and ability. 11. (}. Sipher was born in the

C(!iving his educatiomil tr

rthday annivers;iry drew near, the 
repared liim.-elf to emigrate to 
can well imagine wdiat must 
have been the hojies and :is|jirations of the ytjutli 
at that time and how he must have been an 
object of solicitous care to the honest and faith- 
ful friends who assembled in the village street 
to wish him (iod speed on his eventful voyage 
and t(j e.xtend the best wishes for iiis success 
and happiness. To thus break away from home

In January, 18(35, with a patriotic devotion 
for his adopted country, he enlisted for service 
in the late civil conflict, becoming a member of 
Company A, One Hundred and Seventy sixth 
Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He had taken out 
his naturalization papers in the November previ- 
ous and his first Dallot for President was cast 
for Abraham Lincoln. Iiis loyalty to the cause 
was firm and true and he serveil in the war un-

^ A. Mr EL C. EVANS, M. I).~()ccupying 
'^\ a position of unmistakable prominence 
*!^'' among the members of the Cleveland 
ledical profession, and recoiijnized as a physi- 
high attainments, there is signal consis- 
according to L)r. Evans a place is this 
volume, lie is the niatuiger of the Evans Med- 
ical Dispensary, located at No. 43 Public Sijuare, 
and is one nf the most capable practitioners in 
the city, in his line. He is what is technically 
known as a sjiecialist, giving his attention par- 
ticulai-ly to tlie treatment of disorders of the 


ih.od. Th, 



cialize the dillorent branches of medical science 
in reference to tln^ treatment of spi^cilic diso;ises 
or maladies of allied ordei', is one that is to be 
looked upon with satisfaction and approval by 
all who understand tlie ti-end of the matter. It 
is dimply an imp,.s.-ibilify for a |,hysician in 
general praclice t,. keep him-self Ihor.mghly in- 

gation and experiment, as to the advances made 
in the treatment of the manifold diseases to 
which human llesh is luur. It is then expedi- 
ent that there should bo patiiological specialistB 
or (ixpeits, men who have not covei'cd the entire 
ivalm of medical study but who.-ie decisions in 

ment may Ik' considc'red as authoritative. 

Dr. iM-ans was burn in the city of Cleveland, 
March 2'J, 1815, a son uf William and Anne 
(Welch) Ev;ins, both of wliom were natives of 
Ireland. Tlieir mai'riage occurred in New York 
city, and they came westward to Cleveland as 
early as IS^I). The father was a contractor, 
having given special attention to railway con- 
sti-uctiou. A notewoj-thy fact is, that he jjut 
in operation the lirst di'ay ever u;etl in the city 
of Cleveland. He was a man of sterling inteo-- 
rity, and was held in high esteem. He died in 
1874-, at the advanced age of eighty-four years, 
his widow passing away five years later, at the 
age of seventy-eight. They had eleven chil- 
dren, of whom we make record as follows: 
James Evans, who was chief engineer of the 
ill-fated steamer Lac la Belle, — which was run 
into by the steamer Milwaukee and sunk in 
November, 1860, — and tJuis lost his life while 
at his post of duty. Tliree years later the ves- 
sel was raised and once more put into service, 
only however to meet a similar disaster, going 
to the bottom whilo on the lonte but ween Grand 
Haven and Milwauki-c, entailing the loss of 
many lives. The boat was again rai.-ed, I'e- 
paired and put into operation, and for the limd 
time went down, with all on boaid! 

John W. Evans, the second son, is the pat- 
entee of the appliances utilized in extracting 
linseed oil by the use of naplitha, and is the 
general superintendent of the (Cleveland Lin- 
seed Oil. Company, in which he is a large stock- 
holder. This company has two extensive plants, 
one located in Chicago and the other in Cleve- 

Willie, the thinl son, did when only a year 
and a half old. Margaret is ihe wife of 1'.

Ohio Volunteer Infantry, heing only seventeen 
years of age, and served eontinnously for three 
years and twenty-nine days, participating in 
nearly eighty general engagements. Being a 
men) her of the Army of tlie Potomac, he took 
part in nearly all its engHgenienta. Was ne\'er 
wounded or taken prisoner. The seventh child 
is Richard, who is now solicitor for the Mann- 
I'acturers' Ilecord, of Baltimore, IMaryland. lie 
also saw active service on the lield of battle, 
going out as a drummer boy at the age of four- 
' teen years, in the same company which his 

brother Joseph entered. At length he returned 
home, and afterward enlisted in the Sixty-first 
Ohio Volunteer Infantry as a private, was even- 
tually taken sick, sent to the hospital and finally 
discharged, by reason of disability. Frances is 
the wife of Frank AV^agner, an old prominent 
; funeral ilirector of Cleveland; and George is

Dr. Evans, the subject of this sketch, re- 
I ceived his preliminary education in the jtublic 

■' schools of Cleveland, and in 188G took one 

course of lectures at the Western Reserve Col- 
lege, and completed liis studies at New York in 
1887. lie had gained a practical knowledge of 
medicine and had been in successful practice for 
years prior to entering a medical college, having 
from the beginning given special attention to 
slan and blood diseases. In those special lines 
he has treated many severe cases of chronic dis- 
ease, and has efl'ected some really remarkable 
cures by reason of his thorough knowledge of 
the nature of the disorders and the most effec- 
tive remedial agents to be employed. 

In 186'J the Doctor married Miss Louisa An- 
toinette AVeinstein, a native of New York city 
and of French extraction. They have had two 
children: (ieorgie, who died in early childhood; 
and Samuel William, a member of the r.lass of 

1805 in the medical department of the West 
ern Keservo University, and a young man of 
much promise. 

As to liis p(_)litical predilections Dr. Evans is 
an iiiilepend(Uit thiidcer and voter. In his per- 
sonal a])pearance lie is prepossessing and of tine 
manner and addi'ess, genial and courteous, and 
is honored and epteemed ])rofessionally and so- 
cially. He is a veteran of the war of the Re- 
bellion, liaving served as a member of Company 
E, of the One Hundred and Fiftieth Volunteer 


Ohio, was born in Columbia county, New 
York, in December, 183G. AVhen he was 

larents removed to Mon- 

roe county, that State, win 
hood days until he was th 

passed liis boy- 
years olil, when 
the family removed to Lorain county, Ohio. He 
acquired a good business education in Olierlin 
College, and was first employed as clerk in a 
store at Elyria, Ohio, and in 1858 came to 
Berea and engaged in mercantile business until 
October, 18G1, when he recruited Company E, 
Sixty-tifth Ohio Regiment, being commissioned 
Captain of the company. He served in that 
capacity until December, 1802, wiien he was 
promoted Major; the following spring he was 
commissioned Lieutenant Colonel, and afterward 
Colonel, and still later brevetted Brigadier- 
General, serving till August, 1865. He was 
wounded three times: first at the battle of Stone 
river, slightly; next at Cliickamauga, severely, 
the missile passing through the left arm, en- 
tered the left side, and was extracted from 
under the right shoulder blade; and lastly at 
Kenesaw mountain, severely, so that lie nearly 
lost his life. For nearly a year he served on 
court martial, at Nashville, Tennessee. 

On leaving the army he returned to Berea,

Miss iMaiicrs (!. I'erry, a native (d' Klyria, tiiat 
ciHinty. She died in IJerea, in Angiist, IKSC, 
after a sliert illness, leaving four children, as 
follows: Mai-y A., who became the wife of V. 
T. I'onieroy; Helen F., wlio is the wife of F. 
F. Schneider; Horatio N., the yonngest son, 
died in Cleveland, at the age of twenty-one; and 
William P., who died at IJerea, at the age of 
thirty-one years.

I of Oollinwood, was hnrn in Mayiiel.l 
' townsliip, Onyahoga c(iunty, Ohio, Jnne 
29, 18-1:4, a son of Kiel S. and Mary Jane 
(Field) ifapes, the former horn in New York 
and the latter near Lake Champlain, Vermont, 
'i'he father, a farmer hy occupation, was Cap- 
tain of the first militia ever organized in this 
section. He came with his mother, Julia 
(Smith) Mapes, to Cuyahoga county in 1812, 
his father, Seth Mapes, having arrived here a 
few days befoi'e, and was preparing a home for 
his family. Mrs. ]\[apes covered an o.\ cart 
with canvas, made such preparations as she 
could for the journey, and with her children 
staited for Cuyahoga county. She cared for 
her little ones and drove the oxen the entire 
distance, arriving safely in due time, as much 
to the ])leasure as to the surprise of hoi' lius- 
hand. She was a woman of woiuKu-fnl eourago, 
aiid was well and fav,,raldy kn.Avn in hor com- 
munity. Sim lived to the age of 


which the family located 

was contiguous to the Garfield place, and is 
still in possession of the ]\[apes family. When 

■en yei 

of age Hiel Mapes, the fatlier . 
It thirl v-tW(. cor.l.sof wood, U 

which he received the first pair of boots he ever 
owned. In addition to his other interests, he 
served as 'J'ownship 'J'rustee nearly one-half of 
his life. He died at the age of si.Nty-seveii 
.yi'ars. 1 1 is ^jiotless life, lidelity and integrity 
will be cherished by all who know him, and to 
know him was to lov(. an<l a<lmire him for his 
many virtuiis and his gooil business methods. 
Afr. Mapes was thn'C tinn^s mari'ied, and our 
subject is the seventh in a family of thirteen 
children, all of wdiom are living. Mrs. Mapes 
died in 1848, at tiie age of thirty-two years. 
She joined tlie Methodist Episcopal Church in 
early life, and lovingly continued in its commun- 
ion until Iier death. They soon became accus- 
tomed to the hardships, suifei-ing and incon- 
vcnioi:ces incident to Ohio pioneer life. 

(t. (\ Mapes, the subject of this sketch, at- 
tended the [iiiblic schools, and later entered the 
academy at Mayfield. He was patriotic in 
spirit, and during the lute wai- enlisted se\-en 
times, but was rejected on account of physical 
disability. He, however, spent a short time 
with the" One Hundred and Third Ohio Kegi- 
menr. In IST-i he opened a real-estate oHice in 
this city, which he continued until 1881, and 
since that time has been engaged in the under-- 
taking and furniture business. ]Hs line of 
goods and equipments are the latest im])i'oved 
and in keeping with the best in atiy city. Hi 
1888 Mr. Mapes was elected ]\rayor of Collin- 
wood, and sei-\ed in that jiosition one t(U-m. Ho 
is a man of euei'gy, enterprise and vim. His 
life furnishes a good e.xample of what will and 
perseveranco can accomplish when coupled with 
honesty and strict integrity of charactei'. 

In 18G3 our sid)ject was united in marriage 
with Miss Henrietta, a daugliter of AValter and 
Amanda Frissell, both now decease<l. The 
father died at the age of eighly-two years, and 
the mother died at the age of eighty years. 
Mrs. Frissell came from Ma.ssachusotts, coming 
to Euclid township in an o.x sled, covering the 
whole distance in si.\ weeks in the dead of win- 
ter. Mr. and Mrs. Mapes have four chihlren:

S. JONES, deceased, president and 
treasurer of the Citizens' Savings and 
^ Loan Association of Cleveland, was 
born in Cuyahoga county, Ohio, April 13, 1837. 
In point of settlement this is not an old family 
in Ohio, or even in tiie United States. John 
Jones, our subject's father, was a poor, indus- 
ti'ious English ijoy, liaving found his way to 
(Meveland in 1829. Ifc was born in Hereford- 
shire in 1812, and was only seventeen years of 
age when he cast his lot in tho I'orest City, 
friendless and practically penniless, lie turned 
his hand to any legitimate lalxji' that would 
yield him an honest dollar, and in a few years 
iiad earned and accumulated a sum sutlicient to 
enable him to enjoy a good degree of financial 
independence. In middle and later life he en- 
gaged in the livei-y and transfer business in this 
city, meeting with his usual success, and leaving, 
at his death in 1873, a good estate. 

\V. S. Jones was educated in the city schools 
of Cleveland, graduating at eighteen years of 
age. He entered the otlicc of (i. A. \\y<\^, of 
Ibis city, fur the pnr[>ose of aiviuii-jng a ]ii'aeti- 

ness he expected to engage in, but circum- 
stances controlled otherwise, and when he made 
a new business arrangement it was to enter tho 
olHco of the (;ounty Anditor as draughtsman; 
later he became Deputy y\uditui-, and by reason 
of his po])ularity an<l elHciency he succeeded to 
the Auditorship in the fall electimi of l.S()8. 
lie was re-elected in 1870 and again in 1872, 
and closed liis public service by resignation in 
January, 1875, to accept the position of vice- 
president and treasurer of the Citizc^ns' Savings 
and Loan Association. Thenceforwai'd he de- 
voted his time to the management of this insti- 
tution, keeping abreast; of the times and main- 
taining for it a high standai'd, and a ])ublic con- 
fidence unsurpassed by any similar institution 
in the city. 

In 1802 Mr. Jones succeeded to the 


il en 

which busi- 

dency of the bank. He had other interests in 
and out of Cleveland, and was otticially con- 
nected as follows: For a number of years treas- 
urer of the C. AV. eV M. \l. II.; treasurer oi 
Kalamazoo II. & G. K. II.; director in the 
National Bank of Commerce of (MevehuKl, and 
a stockholder in manufacturing and other insti- 
tutions in this city; treasurer and trustee of the 
Children's Aid Society and Cleveland I>ethel 
Union; dii-ector of the Valley llailroad, and 
vice-])rosident of the American Casualty Com- 
j)any. The several business positions are pointed 
out as evidence of the varied business relations 
he has long since sustained in the business 

As a business man, Mr. Jones was character- 
ized by sagacity, marked executive ability and 
shrewd commercial talent. His success in the 
business world was due to untiring energy, to- 
gether with his aljility to grasj) a business situ- 
ation with a comprehensive idea of all its bear- 
ings and the jirobable outcome or result of any 
business course or [Jan of operation. He always 
maintained a strict character for probity, and 
always shared the confidence of those wdio wore 
p(^rmitled to come in contact witli him in tho 
transaction of business. While in public oHice 
he was as eHi,-ient as in the busine...-. world, and

was one of tlie most popular officials who had 
ever served in a count}' office. Politically he 
was always a well pronounced Republican, hut 
after his resi{,'nation of the office of county Au- 
ditor he has nevei- sought political proferment. 
Ilo\re\er, ho never grew less enthusiastic in the 
interc'^ts of the party to which he always be- 
longed. This I'espectcd and esteemed citizen 
was such by reason of having improved every 
o]>portunity of doing good which has been 
afforded him, and by living a moral, lionest and 
active life. 

lie died November 29, 1803, after an illness 
of some si.x weeks, brought on by exposure at 
the World's Fair. By his death the social cir- 
cles of Cleveland, as well as the business men, 
suffered a great loss. Ilesolutions to this effect 
were passed by the Board of Trade, Citizens' 
Savings and Loan Association, Children's Aid 
Society, Cleveland Clearing- House Association, 
and tho Bethel Association. The Bankers' Re- 
view of Deccmbei-, 1893, says he was a leading 
man in Cleveland's banking business. 

ri( V. KURTZ, a well known resident of 
/ , (_V Cleveland, occupies an important and 
1/ l\ responsible position as local manager of 
' the Postal Telegraph Cable Company, 

and there are many points of interest to be noted 
in tracing his life history through its stages, 
taking cognizance of his rise as a result of na- 
tive ability and indefatigable perseverance. 

lie was born in Cleveland January 13, 1852, 
and secured a high-school education, Init it was 
not permitted him to be afforded those advanced 
educational opportunities which are so often of- 
fered and so often fail of appreciation. How- 
ever, there are more roads than one that "lead 
to liome," an<l tho boy set out to make his way 
in life and to attain such measure of success as 

it was in h 

i-or to ifain. In 1869 he be 

came messenger boy in th 
crn Union Telegraph Co 
terost.ino- to nolo bis iiroin-oss uli 


(,r tho w, 

ipuny, and it 

which his earliest efforts were devoted after he 
had found it necessary to resign his studies in 
school and to turn his attention to undertakings 
that would yicM immediate pecuniary returns. 
In time he mastered the science of telegrajihy, 
and has been an op(U'at(ir for a full quai'ter of a 
century, and for eight years of this time he was 
in the emjiloy of tho same company over whose 
local interests ho now j)resi(les. 

'fhrough faithful service, close attention to 
business, and assiduous toil, ho advanced step 
by step from one position to an other of gi-eator 
trust and responsibility, being in turn an 
operator, clerk, bookkeeper, cashier and finally, 
in 1885, being appointed local manager of the 
Postal Telegraph Cable C!ompany's offices, 117 
Superior street. In this position he has had the 
general supervision of thirty-one operators, who 
are under the direct chai-ge of Mr. E. W. Col- 

lins, as electi 

hief ojici-ator; also of 

ele\-en liranch offices in divei-s (juarfors of tho 
city. Ife has six clerks and thirty-eight mes- 
senger boys, in charge of B. J. Ross, chief 
clerk. The financial aifairs are directed by the 
cashier, Mr. J. II. Matthias, who has two as- 
sistants. An idea of the responsibility involved 
may be gained from even these brief statistics 
in regard to the work over which he is placed 
in charge. 

His work in the interests of the company has 
been important, exacting and successful. He 
had the general supeiwision of the work of en- 
closing the trunk wires in conduits running 
through the fire limits of the city to the Cuya- 
hoga river at the Columbus street bridge, the 
work being accoinplished at a cost of §15,000. 
Mr. Kurtz was for some time connected with 
the Union Building and Loan Association as 

Our subject was united in marriage, June 18, 
1878, to Miss Nettie ]\forse, a daughter of 
George W. Morse, an old resident of Ashtabula 
county, who at present is living in (^leveland, 
as a retired business man. Mr. and Mrs. Kurtz 
have three children: CracM^ born in 1879;

rp-l inent lawyer and citizen of Cleveland 
11 41 was born October 10, 1826, at New Lon- 
^ dun, Connecticut, of distinguished Rui'- 

itan ancestry. After having received a liberal 
education ho began the study of law, in 184C. 
In 1816 he came to Ohio, and was admitted to 
the bar in Cuyahoga county in 1851. He was 
elected to the City Council in 1852 and in tlie 
spring of the following year was made presi- 
dent of that body. \n this official capacity be- 
gan his public career, which has been distin- 
guished by earnestness, integi'ity and sincerity 
of purpose, and which has been so abundantly 
filled with honor. In 1857 he was elected to 
the Legislature of the State of Ohio as a mem- 
ber of the newly founded Republican party, and 
was re elected in 185'J, being chosen Speaker of 
the House of Representatives. He was scarcely 
thirty-three years of age when he was elevated 
to this responsiiile and distinguished position, 
where he accpiitted himself as a legislator of 
marked ability and wisdom. When President

Mr. Parsons declined, antl accepted the Consul- 
ship to Rio de Janeiro, remaining in that capacity 
one year, wiien ho resigned and soon thereafter 
was appointed Collector of Internal Revenue at 
Cleveland, and still later Marshal of the Su- 
piomc (]ouit of tho United States, which posi- 
tion he held from I8(j(i to 1872. Jn 1872 ho 
was tendered by I'l'osident Johnson the position 
of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury or Gov- 
ernorship of ]\Iontana, both of which he de- 
clined. In the latter year another honor came 
to Mr. Parsons in his election to Congress from 
the Cleveland District. In Congress he dis- 
tinguished himself as one well fitted for the 
office he held. He was directly instrumental in 
securing the Life Saving Service at the Cleve- 
land port, also the lighthouse for the Govern- 
ment pier, and the commencement of the work 
of building the Cleveland breakwater. 

From early life Mr. Parsons has displayed 
remarkable literary taste and ability, and from 
1877 to 188U was editor and principal owner of 
the " Cleveland Herald," but disposing of the 
same he resumed the practice of law, in which 
he has also gained an enviable reputation for 

himself. He 


been consr 

an active and progressive Republican in [loli- 
tics, and was among the anti-slaveiy men of 
1848, in resisting the spread of slavery into the 
Territories of the United States. Some of his 
literary speeches and lectures have been gath- 
ered together and published, and iiave been read 
with unusual interest by a wide circle of readers. 

Chair of Electrical Engineering in the 
Case School of Applied Science at Cleve- 
land, is a native of the city of Boston, 
born in 1811, one of the three children of Sam- 
uel Langley, who was an active business man, 
as well as literary, and an early stockholder in 
the Boston Atheneum; he was also a collector 
of choice notable books.

un(h.r tlu' inHtructh.n of Dr. ( ". W. ilains, of 
Bedford, now a resident of Kent, with whom 
he eontiinied u studiMit tiireo ycar.i. In the 
winter of 1S8 1 -'85 ho took his first course of 
lectui-es in the (Cleveland Homeopathic Hospi- 
tal Oollege: this institution is now known aa 
the Cleveland li niversit y of Medicine and Sur- 
gery. Tl,ere Dr. (lolling was graduated, a 

member of the class of 1887, and immediately 
thereafter began his practice at l?edford. At 
the end of twelve months he went to Windham, 
Fortage county, Ohio, where he resided until 
188'.), returning then to Bedford. Here he has 
established a large practice, which has resulted 



d financially. 
Ambitious of attaining superior excellence in his 
profession, he has been a close reader of all the 
medical litei'ature of the day, and is thoroughly 
well informed upon all the discoveries of science 
and the improved methods of tlie leading prac- 
titionei'S of the world. He also holds a certifi- 
cate of surgery granted him by the snrgeons of 
Huron Street Hosjntal of Cleveland, Ohio. He 
prefers surgery rather than the general practice 
of medicine, and in a few years hopes to prac- 
tice it aliiujst exclusively. His success in ob- 
stetrieal surgei'y has been unparalleled by any 
young physician in this branch of the science.

djONESS. DFCKLE, jntdor moniher of the 
' J. L. Hudson clothing firm, Cleveland, and 
general manager of their business, is best 
described by tlu> word " hustler."' In the 
ei^htc^en years or more since his advent in tlio 
clothing trade he has made for iiimself a name 
and a place seldom reached by men of his age; 
for his C(jin])any raid<s among the foremost in 
their line in America, the volume of their sales 
protiably exceeding that <if any retail (dothing 
house in any city of similar size on the conti- 

Mr. Dickie's lirst essay in business life was 

in the clothing traile, when he was employed Ijy 
the noted house of 0. R. ]\[abloy, of Detroit, 
while he was yet a lad. I>atcr he occupied re- 
sponsible positions in J. L. Ilndson's various 
branch establishments at Sandusky and Toledo, 
Ohio, and Jackson, Michigan. When in 1885 
Mr. Hudson made his great deal in Cleveland 
and bought out the Excelsior clothing house, 
Mr. Dickie, then in his twenty-eiglith year, was 
elected its manager. Cleveland offered a lai'ge 
field for an enterprising man like him, especially 
wluui backed by i\[r. Hudson's great capital, 
keen judgment and shrewd foresight, and the 
op]iortunity was well improved. Tlic eity already 
had lai'ge clothing- houses, but none of them had 
ever Ixfen run in tlie nninncr which Mr. Hudson 
made so successful in Detroit and elsewhere; 
his melhods were of the •' booming" kind,— 
hiiying great hits at cut prices, ailvertising ex- 
tensively and selling at pi'ices that would insure 

ready transactions. And ^[r. Dickie was just 
the sort of man to inaugurate these methods in 
this city. Ho entered into the execution of 
them with " heart and soul," and some of the 
most l.rilliant advertising in llu: cl.,tl,in;,' lino 
ever d,, II.' ill Cl.'vdand was dune by Mr. Dickie. 

lie has always in-cn a si r.,ii- ad vocale of special 
sales, working fur tlin mull it and not lor the 
few; and he has also l.een a believer in the 
policy of hiw prices and ([iiicli moxeiiicnt of 
goods. Coiiseiiuontly the Cleveland public 
siiim ascoriained that the announcement of a 
great sale at the E.xcelsior meant low prices and 
exceptionable values. 

The Hudson establishment has always had 
the reputation of being willing to buy anything 
that could be bought I'ight, and Mi-. Dickie 
stands shoulder to shouhlerwith Mr. Hudson 
as an advocate of this ]jolicy. The stoi'C is a 

irents' cloth 



ilitie,^ that they wi 

d bi 

is ,J, 


iti; within 
ain load of 

Collins, a cargo of shoe-pi'gs or a dozen elephants 
if the prices were low enough with the cer- 
tainty that the pi'oper advertising \\ould insure 
their cmick sale at a ])rotit. So far as we know, 
however, Mr. Dickie has not yet speculated in 
these articles last mentioned, hut more than once 
has he sailed in and handled large quantities of 
ladies' goods, such as cloaks, etc., that he had 
bought at a bargain; and on <jne memorable oc- 
casion he drew such a tlock of ladies to the 
store that it became his turn to say " .No," close 
the doors and temporarily keep hack thecrow<l! 
One of his great purchases, some time ago, was 
of the salvage remaining from the lire of Klein, 
GoodhartA K'och, .saiil to be valued at .S20(),()0(); 
it was bought by Hmlson & Dickie in just one- 
half hour from the opening of negotiations. 
Mr. Dickie's face is one of the most familiar at 
the New York clothing markets, known to all 
his customers as characterized by black hair, 
brilliant black eyes, tine jihysique, commanding 
in appearance aiul pleasant and genial to all.

Ilis advent into tlie clothing trade was unique. 
He straggled into Detroit not many years ago, 
badly in need of a jol>. Enterinj; ilabley's es- 
tablishment, of whicli J. Jj. Hudson was then 
the maTiager, he asked whetlier they needed any 
help. It was jnst prior to a big fair; the town 
woui.l B(M,n im'riill uf peopK', and iinl.^ud more 
help was nredi'd. "Can you sell clothiiii^? " 
asked the manager, looking the applicant over. 
" I think I can," was the modest reply. " Well, 
come around j\[onday and I will see what you 
can di)." i\Ir. Dickie departed and entered the 
cidthing store next door. " I want tf) get some 
clothes," said he to the clerk. He was hard to 
suit. Ho questioned the clerk sharply about 
the merit of the goods. The clerk, expatiating, 
])ulled down suit after suit, going tliiough the 
whole stock, but could not make a sale. Mr. 
Dickie went out and entered anotluu' store, going 
through the same perfornumce, and ere long ho 
had examinetl every clothing stock in Detroit, 
and knew as much about the business as any 
ordinary salesman could ti^ll. So, on Monday 
he returned to Mabli^y's, according to agree- 
ment, was ])laced at work, and soon jjroved to 
be one of the liveliest and most etiici(int sales- 
man the house ever had. Mr. Hudson's keen 
jiulgment of men came into play when he 
started in business for himself, and J\Ir. Dickie 
was one of bis lirst selections, who has ])ro\'en 
himself one of the most successful of his as- 

Mr. Dickie is of (4erman ancestry, a J'enn- 
sylvanian by birth, a I'lesbyterian in religion, 
active in all the general business interests of the 
city, a member of the I'oard of Trade and of 
about all the secret and social organizations of 
the city. His success in business and accumu- 
lations of wealth have been such as to enable 
him to invest !t;5(),UU() in stocks, vAc, outside of 
his business as a (dothier. Ife became a part- 
ner in the business in 188tJ. The J. L. JIndsdn 
clothing house in Cleveland succeeds Stein, 
August & (Jai-son, who opened the " Excelsior" 
clothing house in 1S.S8, and failed on account 
of inellicirut management; Mr. Hudson Umk 

the management in 1885, and under the man- 
agement of Mr. Dickie the business has proven 
a decided success from the very beginning. 

This gri^at Cleveland establishment is known 
throughout tlio country, and is said to be oncMjf 
the finest cl
