GEORGE BEELER MANNING

[Source: Moundsville Echo, Friday, January 4, 1895]

G. B. Manning died suddenly at his residence on South Jefferson avenue Saturday evening. He was stricken down on Tenth St. some distance from his home, but revived sufficiently with the aid of friends to walk to his residence where he passed away in a short time afterward. He had been in his usual health up to the time he was stricken down, but had for some time at periods been afflicted with rheumatism in different parts of the body. It is supposed that apoloxy of the brain was the immediate cause of death.

George Beeler Manning was born on Fork Ridge, this county on July 18th, 1823. He married Susan Bush, also a native of this county, who survives him. For 50 years this worthy couple traveled life’s journey together. Nine children were the fruits of the union. Seven of the children survive the father, William W. lives in the state of Oregon, also two daughters, Rebecca Jane and Mary E., both married. J. A., H. C., and W. C. live in this city. F. P. lives on the old homestead on Roberts Ridge.

The earthly pilgramage of the deceased has been one of ------- business and social character. For 41 years, he has been a consistent member of the M. E. Church always willing with his ------ ------ to assist in the cause of religion. In his business life he was a model of integrity. From a small beginning by ----- and the application of strict business methods he accumulated a large land estate. His motto was to attend to George B. Mannings business and let other people attend to their own affairs. He never had a law suit in his life.

Of his fathers family but two sisters remain, Mrs. Lavinia Martin of Glen Easton and Mrs. Lyda Holmes of Iowa, both widows. About 9 years ago the deceased retired from the farm and moved to this city where he has lived in retirement to the time of his death.

The funeral took place from his late residence on Monday afternoon. A large number of relatives and friends followed the remains to their last resting place in Brookside cemetery. The familiar presence of one who was commonly known as Uncle George Manning will be sadly missed by nearly every person in this city and county as he did not have a known enemy among his large acquaintance.

Joshua J. Martin, San Marino's oldest pioneer, died September 26 at the age of 97. Mr. Martin, known to a host of relatives and friends in San Marino as "Uncle Joshua", had lived at 1424 Wilson avenue since 1909. He suffered a serious fall recently, receiving injuries which resulted in his death.

Mr. Martin was born March 8, 1855, in Beeler's Station Va., and as a boy traveled in a covered wagon with his parents to Illinois. Later the family moved to Nebraska territory where in 1886 he was married to Stephanie Euell, who died only two years ago soon after they had celebrated their 64th wedding anniversary.

Mr. Martin remembered Lincoln's funeral at which he was present as a boy, and delighted in recalling his move to California in 1909 with Mrs. Martin and the purchase of a five-acre orange grove "in the country" which is now San Marino. The acreage is now converted into nine large residences on Pasqualito drive and El Molino.

Funeral services were held Monday afternoon at Edwards and Cummings Mortuary, Pasadena. Interment was in Mt. View Cemetery.

He is survived by his sister-in-law, Miss Georgine Euell of San Marino, and a sister, Mrs. Esther Trowbridge, Blue Hills, Neb.; a niece, Mrs. Charles Montgomery, formerly of San Marino; a nephew, Gaylord Martin, Sierra Madre, and his grand-niece, Mrs. William A. Rice, of this city.

(Joshua Martin (Uncle Joshua) died September 26, 1952. His wife Stephanie (Aunt Fannie) died January 13, 1950.)

CARL W. McCARDLE

McClean, Va., July 11 (AP) -- Carl W. McCardle, a veteran newspaperman who became an Assistant Secretary of State, was found dead yesterday in a neighbor's swimming pool. He was 68 years old.

He leaves his wife, a daughter, Mrs. Marcia Maddox, a sister, Mrs. Charles N. Matthews and a granddaughter.

OWNED A NEWSPAPER AS TEEN-AGER

Mr. McCardle, a former reporter and foreign correspondent who served under John Foster Dulles as Assistant Secretary of State, got his journalistic start as a teen-ager when he became the owner of a small newspaper in his home town, Cameron, W. Va.

He worked his way through Washington and Jefferson College, Washington, Pa., as a reporter on The Washington Observer. After his graduation in 1926, he became a rewrite man, feature writer and critic and, in 1943, a diplomatic correspondent.

He served in Europe from 1945 to 1946 and became a national affairs correspondent in 1948, working in Japan and Korea, as well as in Europe.

Mr. McCardle shifted to The Philadelphia Bulletin and was chief of the Washington Bureau when he was named Secretary of State for Public Affairs on Jan. 6, 1953.

He was one of the first State Department appointments in the Eisenhower Administration, and he took the position with the understanding that there would be publication of all information not essential to national security or to the success of diplomatic negotiations.

Mr. McCardle was said in 1955 to be one of the persons chiefly responsible for the release of the texts of the Yalta Papers, which recounted the 1945 meeting of World War II leaders.

He resigned on Feb. 16, 1957, and President Dwight D. Eisenhower accepted his resignation with "a sense of loss, both official and personal."

In recent years Mr. McCardle wrote for magazines and published a book, of which he was co-author, "These Are the Generals."

ELIZABETH McCLEAN

"Death of Mrs McClean -

On Thursday, April 23, 1874

Mrs. Elizabeth McClean, wife of Joseph McClean, dec'd, died at the residence of her son-in-law, Capt. D. Roberts, near this place, in the ninety-eighth year of her age. "Grandmother McClean, as she was familiarly called, was born in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on the 17 day of September, 1776, where she resided until the year of 1805, she then moved to the neighborhood of Wilmington, Delaware. She lived there until sometime in 1833, when she moved to Moundsville, Virginia at which place she remained until her death. When quite young she united herself with the Presbyterian Church, of which she continued an earnest and exemplary member until death call her to a world of peace, joy and happiness. The last twenty years of here existence was a burden to her. During that time a good sleep was unknown to her - two or three hours rest being a fair average enjoyed at any one time - consequently she was obliged to have almost constant personal attendance. Frequently she has been heard praying that it might be the will of God to soon remove her from this world to that "world of pure delight above." Grandmother McClean was the oldest lady in this county, and perhaps in this section of the State. Some ten years ago her eyesight failed very much, but she recovered a second sight, which lasted until some four years ago. During her second sight she would engage herself, a few minutes at a time, in executing fine needlework which she presented to friends as remembrances of her when she had passed away. She leaves a large circle of friends and relatives to mourne her loss. Of the relatives, living, she leaves one hundred and thirty six. Of this number there are six sons and three daughters; thirty grandchildren, ninety-eight great grand children, and eight great-great grand children - of fourth generation. In addition to the above there are thirty or more, dead."

Wheeling Register, August 3, 1887

A PROMINENT MAN GONE

Death of Mayor Frank McJilton, of Benwood.

In the death of Mayor Frank McJilton, which occurred yesterday afternoon at two o'clock, Benwood loses one of its most prominent and best known citizens. For many years he has been identified with the promotion of the chief interests of the town, and has ever been ready to extend a helping hand to those who needed assistance, and was unsparing in using his influence he could command in behalf of his friends. Mayor McJilton's health has never been good since his return from the army, and during the past year he has failed visibly, and his death, though not entirely unexpected, was nevertheless a great shock, not only to his family but to the community. He died of Pleuro-pneumonia, which he has suffered with at various times for a number of years. He also had heart trouble. He leaves a wife and six children.

The funeral will take place on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. Interment at McMechen's Cemetery.

TYhe city buildings are draped and the Owens floats her flag at at half-mast.

A sad feature of his death is its effect on his oldest daughter, a bright girl of fourteen, who has been ill for some weeks and is now prostrated by her father's death.

Mr. McJilton was prominent in the Democratic councils of Marshall county, and wielded a large influence in Benwood. He was chosen mayor last spring, after filling a previous term as City Recorder, and his administration of municipal affairs was a most creditable one. His death has caused universal regret.

[Note: Daughter, Katie, died soon after, on 28 August 1887. Wife, Margaret died 23 Mar 1888. Son, Francis, in his 4th year, died 17 Sep 1890; funeral from Orphans' Home.]

JAMES H. McMECHEN

Death of an Old and Well-Known Resident of Wheeling

AFTER ILLNESS OF ONLY A MONTH

A Full and Comprehensive Sketch of His Life

A DESCENDANT OF AN OLD FAMILY.

James Hanson McMechen died at his residence, No. 2207 Chapline street, at twenty minutes to eleven o'clock last night, in the seventy-sixth year of his age.

He was one of the oldest and best known of the citizens of Wheeling, and his death will carry sorrow and regret to the hearts of a large number of relatives and friends.

The deceased had been ill for several weeks past, and his death therefore was not unexpected, but the shock will be none the less heavy for that, for he was universally respected and esteemed by all who knew him, and it was hoped he would rally from his last illness.

James H. McMechen was the fifth son of Benjamin McMechen, and was born on the old homestead, just south of Benwood, January 18, 1813. He spent his earlier years on the paternal farm, acquiring a rudemental knowledge of agricultural pursuits and such scholastic knowledge as was dispensed by the pedagogues of that early day. In the summer of 1825 he was sent to school in this city, and the following year attended a select school taught by Rev. C. Wheeler, a Baptist minister, who resided near Washington, Pa. In 1827 he went to school to William S. Morgan, at Elizabethtown, now Moundsville, and in the fall and winter of the same year attended the county school upon his father's extensive farm. In 1828 he went to Madison College, at Uniontown, Pa., an institution just started under Methodist patronage, Henry B. Bascom being its President. Here he remained for five years, taking the degree of A. B., and taking first honors in his class. In 1832, immediately after graduating, Mr. McMechen entered the ministry of the M. E. Church, and became attached to the Pittsburgh Conference. Four years later he married Miss Elizabeth A. Sehon of Clarksburg, in which town the deceased was then stationed. Shortly afterwards Rev. McMechen entered the Protestant Episcopal Church, and the succeeding year was passed at Parkersburg, after which he returned to Clarksburg. There he resided until 1847, being mostly engaged in conducting a female seminary, and was also active in endeavoring to secure a system of free popular education. In 1847 he removed to this city, and for the succeeding twenty years his time was mostly give to popular education. But his energies were not confined to this work. In 1852, Mr. McMechen was chosen presiding justice of Ohio county, and filled the office for the succeeding three years. He then resigned and re-entered upon the pursuit of educational work.

In 1871 he was elected as one of the Board of Regents of the University of West Virginia, with the understandingthat he was to take charge of the preparatory department of that institution, and also the professorship of English literature. He found the labor too irksome, however, and soon resigned, to return to Wheeling. The succeeding year and a half was given up to ministerial work in the Episcopal parishes and general missionary labors, but at the end of that time he resumed the position he had previously held of principal of the Fifth ward public school. This position he held until 1876, when declining health compelled him to relinquish all labors of this nature.

During his connection with the city schools, Mr. McMecehn, in company with Prof. F. S. Williams, organized the Teachers' Institute, a msot flourishing organization, and alas ended materially in the organization of the State Teachers' Association. He was well known as a lecturer, and was also well known, he having published several works.

He was the father of twelve children, several of his daughters being married to well-known gentlemen of this vicinity.

W. H. McMILLAN, 81, DIED WEDNESDAY

W. H. McMillan, aged 81 years passed away early Wednesday morning at his home in Alpena, after an acute illness of nearly a month. He suffered a stroke of apoplexy December 15, and failed to rally greatly.

Plans for the funeral have not yet been completed at the time of printing this issue.

Mr. McMillan is survived by six children: Miss Nina McMillan; Orville G McMillan, Manderson Wyo.; George McMillan, Gann Valley; Mrs. K T Aisenbrey, Alpena; Albert McMillan, Ft. Lauderdale, Florida; and Mrs. John Potter, Minneapolis, Minn.

Mr. McMillan, born in West Virginia, came to South Dakota in the early days, and after farming west of Alpena, came to Alpena nearly 40 years ago and engaged in various businesses; his main work always being dealing in livestock, establishing a market here that was the envy of other towns in this section. He retired from active work about ten years ago.

FINAL RITES HELD FOR W. H. McMILLAN HERE ON SATURDAY

Funeral services were held Saturday afternoon in the Alpena Methodist church for W. H. McMillan, who died Jan 13 at his home in Alpena following a month’s illness.

The day was extremely cold and stormy, and many did not know of the time of the funeral, yet there was a goodly number of friends present for the services. There was a beautiful and large floral offering.

The Rev. Albert Hartt officiated at the service and three songs were sang by a mixed quartet: Mrs. Harold Neuharth, Mrs. Allen Brigham, Albert Schmidt, and Sam Burnison. Mrs. Lewis Aye was pianist.

The pallbearers were P. P. Myran, Robert Cook, Otto Winter, Mason Smith, A. J. Aisenbrey, and Allen Brigham.

Interment was made at the family plot in Rest Haven cemetery.

Thus were the final rites for a highly respected man, who lived in the community for more than fifty years, and who for more than forty years lived in Alpena and conducted business enterprises in such a manner that he helped build up the town and gained for himself an enviable reputation for honesty and loyalty. During the past several years he had been inactive in business, but until recently kept his interest in civic and political affairs.

While living on the farm west of Alpena in Chery (should be Cherry) Township Mr. McMillan helped organize a Sunday school and was instrumental in securing a pastor to hold services at a nearby schoolhouse. He taught singing school for several years. After coming to Alpena he engaged in the business of buying and selling livestock, and later formed a partnership for the same purpose with P. P. Myran which continued until a few years ago. He financed putting in the first electric light plant in Alpena, which served the town from 1914 to 1919. He was financially interested in the telephone system here, and a partnership in a general store. During all of these years he was in demand as a farm auctioneer, continuing in that work successfully until as recently as about ten years ago, when he became unable to stand the work of the large farm sales.

Coming from a distance to attend the services were his son, Orville of Manderson, Wyoming, his daughter and husband, Mr. and Mrs. John Potter of Minneapolis; and his son George McMillan, wife and two children of Gann Valley, and Miss Georgia Aisenbrey of Marion.

The following brief obituary was read at the funeral service and tells only briefly the personal events of a life full of well-doing and great enterprise.

OBITUARY

William Hodge McMillan was born Dec. 12, 1861 to the family of John and Mary McMillan who lived on a farm near Wheeling, West Virginia. He received his public school education in that community and later attended Morgantown University.

Mr. McMillan married a childhood acquaintance, Medora Eugenia Kern, on the 5th day of January 1881.

To this union were born 7 children: Nina Pearl, Orville, Gracie, George, Isadore, Albert, and Golda--six of these children are still living. Gracie having died at the age of five.

Mr. and Mrs. McMillan resided in West Virginia until 1891 when they moved to a farm west of Alpena.

NOTE: Thomas Jefferson Evans was a school director and went to supervise a 'Box Social" at one of the Springhill Twp. schools in Greene County, Pa. The Jobes brothers were rowdy and he settled them down. They left and went out the ridge where he would be going home in his buggy. A huge rock was thrown at him and struck him in the head. He lived a couple days but died as a result of the head injury.

According to news articles in the Athens Messenger (Ohio), Ira Jobes (aka "Creighbaum" and "Quickbaum" in the articles), killed "Jeff" Evans.

  • November 2, 1882 - "Last Friday morning, at Corning, a notorius rough by the name of Creighbaum was thought to have been fatally shot by A. J. McDevitt, in self defense. McDevitt has the sympathy of the citizens, and would no doubt have been killed had he not been too quick for Creighbaum.
  • November 9, 1882 - "A Corning correspondent under date of last Thursday say: Creighbaum, the rough who was shot last Friday, is still alive, and reported better. To-day his case took a new turn, by George Hupp going before Squire Donnelly and swearing out a warrant for his arrest for murder in the first degree. The murder was committed in Green county, Pennsylvania, five years ago, near Hupp's home. Hupp says in his affidavit that Creighbaum's name is Ira Jobes, and that he killed Jeff. Evans with a stone, striking him in the back of the head."
  • December 14, 1882 - "Ira Jobes, alias Quickbaum, who was shot by Andy McDevitt, several weeks ago at Corning, died in Green county, Pennsylvania, at Waynesburg, on the 2d inst., of blood poisoning, where he was awaiting his trial for the murder of Jeff. Evans.
  • A bounty was offered for the capture of Jobes but, according to the The Keystone Courier, Connellsville, Pennsylvania, February 9, 1883:

    "The Greene county commissioners have refused to pay the reward offered by a former board for the capture of Ira Jobes, the murderer. The man who made the arrest in Ohio will bring suit against them in the United States court at Pittsburg."

The remains were brought back to Dallas on Wednesday evening but at too late an hour for a service. Interment in Mt. View Cemetery. The deceased was a daughter of the late James and Rachel McKain Montgomery, born November 26, 1851, on the old Montgomery farm three east of Dallas. She resided on the old farm for 50 years, or until after her mother's death, when she went to Ohio. For about 35 years she was a faithful and consistent member of the Dallas Presbyterian Church. She is gratefully remembered in her old home neighborhood for her skill in caring for the sick, possessing natural talent and a willingness to aid when needed. Many regretted that they could not have aided her in return in the past year when her health was gradually failing. Two brothers and four sisters survive; Joseph and Miss Ella Montgomery, with whom she lived, Mrs. George Horn, near Freeport, Ohio, Mrs. Joseph Crawford, West Finley, Mrs. James Archer, Claysville, W. B. Montgomery, Donegal Township, Joseph Montgomery, a brother served in Co. K. 16th Pa. Cav. and was buried in Lynchburg, Va.

    Addition: I have found the headstone for her mother Rachel McKain Montgomery, but not for her or her father in the Mt. View Cemetery.I included the father on the burial list for the cemetery since I am certain that he is also buried there.Sarah does not have a headstone either.

    S. R. MORROW

    Rites Today for S.R. Morrow, Chairman of City Planners

    Final rites will be conducted this afternoon in the Kepner Funeral Chapel, 1308 Chapline Street, for S. Rosson Morrow, 57, prominent civic, fraternal and business leader of Wheeling, who died at 3:30 a.m. yesterday in the Ohio valley General hospital, where he had been a patient since Monday.

    The Rev. Dr. W.D. Lewis, former pastor of the Second Presbyterian church, will officiate and the remains will be sent to his native Adairville, KY, for interment.

    Mr. Morrow, who, among other things, was chairman of the Wheeling Planning commission, resided at 13 Poplar Avenue, Woodsdale. He was born on March 29, 1894, the son of the late James and Mattie Chambers Morrow and started his business career with the P. Lorillard Tobacco Company and came to Wheeling to join the Bloch Brothers firm. After 28 years of association, he retired as vice-president. At the time of his death, he was chairman of the board of the J.L. Seabright company.

    During his long civic career, he was instrumental in formulating plans for the Wheeling-Benwood flood wall and was an active leader of the Ohio Valley Board of Trade.

    His fraternal affiliations included Wheeling Lodge 28, BPOE, the fort Henry club, Knights Templar, Osiris temple of the Shrine, the Royal Order of Jesters and the Wheeling Country club.

    Surviving are his wife, Ann Barker Morrow; two brothers, Alan, of Mount Pleasant, Mich., and J.V. Morrow, Washington D.C., and two sisters, Mrs. C.F. Glenn, Lexington, KY, and Mrs. A.B. Benson, Boston.

    Wheeling News-Register
    Page 14, Thursday, October 18, 1951
    S. Rosson Morrow

    The passing of S. Rosson Morrow takes from Wheeling a civic leader whose long years of planning local improvements were just commencing to bear fruit. He was first chairman of the Wheeling Planning commission and remained in that capacity when that body was reorganized. Although actively engaged in business, he was unsparing of his time and energy to further the projects which he and his fellow members of the commission had undertaken.

    The proposed flood wall for Wheeling was foremost on Mr. Morrow's list of prospective improvements for wheeling. He spent many hours with U.S. Engineers over designs for this project and on numerous occasions went to Washington to consult with federal authorities. His trips to Washington for this purpose were often made at his own expense. Mr. Morrow originally conceived a river front boulevard extending from Wheeling to Moundsville to tie-in with the flood wall and at the same time to incorporate with the scheme, a sewage disposal and anti-pollution plant. The last named would have saved the city thousands of dollars. The boulevard idea had to be dropped, however, on account of its great cost.

    The new bridge for which piers will be erected from ninth street to the Island within the next few months was championed by Mr. Morrow who conferred frequently with the state administration at Charleston to bring this much needed improvement to the city.

    Mr. Morrow, a native Kentuckian, came of a tobacco family and practically all his lifetime was devoted to that industry. for many years he was an executive in charge of production and supervision of blending at Bloch Brothers. Prior to coming to Wheeling he had been with the Lorillard company as a buyer. Right after the first World War, the Lorrillards sent him to Mesopotamia in Asia now known as Iraq to procure blends of Turkish tobacco for cigarettes. He had to travel in a model-T Ford over a crude road built by the British army.

    At his farm out the Clinton Pike, Mr. Morrow had much valuable blooded livestock which he frequently exhibited at livestock shows. He acquired a wide acquaintanceship among the people of his adopted city, friends who will long remember his efforts to carry Wheeling forward.

    MARY KATHLEEN "KITTY" MYERS

    Burch Ridge --The remains of Miss Kitty Myers were brought to Grace Chapel for interment Monday Feb 19. Miss Kitty's death was most sad as she was only 17 and her childhood and youth had merged into young womanhood just so far that it seemed to her friends that she would not be given up. But "He who doeth all things well” has only shown us by another perfect object lesson that all that belongs to God is pure.
