MARGARET FOX RESSEGER

"Moundsville Echo"

Margaret Resseger was born Oct. 31, 1835 in Germany, and died May 4, 1910 at Proctor, WV. She came to the United States in 1848, with her parents and settled in Ohio. In 1861 (22 Sept), she was united in marriage to Henry Resseger. During the War they lived in Monroe county, Ohio. In 1867 she and her husband moved to Fairview, Franklin district, Marshall county, WV. She spent many years in this place. Her husband was a merchant, and she spent a great deal of time in the store, as her husband was often called away to attend to public business.

As a neighbor and friend everybody like her. She was kind hearted and universally loved by all who knew her.

When her husband died on June 11th, 1903, she left Fairview and went to Howard to live with her son-in-law S. T. Yoho. During the seven years she made her home here. She was tenderly cared for by her son-in-law and only daughter her grandchildren and all loved her.

She had a strong constitution and was healthy up to the afternoon she journeyed to the land beyond. Her death was very sudden. She was visiting her granddaughter at Proctor, Mrs. Wiley Yeater, when about 4 o'clock she was playing with one of her great-grandchildren and she dropped down. The doctor and neighbors were called but she had gone into the sleep of death.

She was to have visited Mr. and Mrs. Henry Yoho on her way back to Howard, but her last visit had been made when she was taken to the private burying ground of Henry Yoho to be buried she knew it not. Her earthly career had ended.

The service was conducted at Sloan's church by Rev. A. Linkletter in the presence of a very large gathering, people having come from Ohio and New Martinsville to attend the funeral.

She commenced to live for Christ when she was entering her twelfth year. She tried to live in such a way that she would be prepared to go home to the good world when the heavenly Father would call her. And while the summons came without any warning she commenced to sleep for eternity.

She rests from her labors in this life to live with the angels and all pure spirits in the world where there is no more pain, and God wipes away tears, and where none ever weep or sigh.

AMY ROBERTS RICHMOND

Parsons, Kansas Daily Sun, January 10, 1902:

Again we are made to mourn, the Angel of Death having entered the home of brother Josiah Richmond and taken from them the wife and mother, Amy R. Richmond. She was born in Marshall Co. West Virginia August 16th 1835. Her maiden name was Roberts, she being the daughter of George Roberts [son of Gaius] and Elizabeth Jefferson Roberts [daughter of John Jefferson and Elizabeth Zimmerman]. She departed this life Jan. 8th 1902 after a sickness of five days of pneumonia, leaving in sadness two sons, a foster daughter, and an aged companion with whom she had lived nearly half a century. Also two little granddaughters living with them, of whom she expressed regret at leaving, being conscious that the end was near. She obeyed the gospel in early life, living a faithful Christian life to the end. Her first duty was to her God and family, then to the relieving of the sick and distressed in her modest, humble manner which ever adorns the spirit of the true followers of Christ. The Bible, Octographic Review and Primitive Christian were her constant companions, being always kept in reach of her easy chair, she being delicate in health many years.

The funeral services were conducted by C. T. Cole at the residence attended by a large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends after which we laid to rest the remains in Oakwood cemetery by the side of her son, Frank, who preceded her to the spirit land some eight years. With tearful eyes we laid to rest all that was mortal, the body we loved so well yet not without hope of the reuniting of all God's children beyond the confines of the tomb.

Please, dear friends, cease your weeping around the spot where I am sleeping, This life is short, and bless be He, that calls us to eternity. -- Mrs. T. J. Davis

ISABELLA RICHMOND

The dark shadow has again crossed the threshold of our once happy but now desolate home. The angel of death has again visited us, and another soldier of the cross has fallen a victim to his relentless power. This time he lays his icy hand on the loved form of our dear old mother. He was so sudden and silent in his cruel work that we were scarcely aware of this unwelcome presence until he had taken her away. Mrs. Isabella Richmond, wife of John Richmond, passed away on Saturday, February 13, 1886, at 8 o'clock P.M. She was the daughter of Benjamin and Elizabeth [McKenzie] Gunn. She was born in the city of Glasgow, Scotland, January 22, 1805, making her at the time of her death eighty-one years, one month and eleven days old [sic]. Her father's family emigrated to the United States when she was ten or eleven years old, and settled in the state of Pennsylvania. She became a member of the church of Christ early in life, was possessed of strong faith and hope to the day of her death. She was a woman of strong convictions and very prominent traits of character. Many persons who were poor in this world's goods, and whom she befriended will call her blessed.

She was personally acquainted with A. Campbell and many other prominent men in the great reformatory movement. She was very constant in her attendance at the Lord's house; ever ready to give of her means for the advancement of the kingdom of Christ. She was married Dec. 14, 1825, to John Richmond, shortly after which they moved to Marshall County, West Virginia. Many of the friends of the family who still live in that portion of the country will shed bitter tears of sorrow when they read these lines. She was the mother of fourteen children; five only still survive her. Her beloved husband and our dear father passed over the cold river, Aug. 6, 1878. There are four mounds in the beautiful cemetery at Galesburg, Kan., beneath which lie buried many fond hopes. Services at the grave were conducted by Bro. Powell, he being a friend of the family.

"Friends, fondly cherished, have passed on before, Waiting, they watch us approaching the shore."

NORTHERN REGIONAL JAIL INMATE FOUND DEATH

Moundsville, W.Va. (AP) ? A Northern Regional Jail inmate was found Sunday hanged in his cell.

Robert Allen Riggs, 30, of Cameron made a noose out of a bed sheet and wedged the material under a sprinkler head cover to kill himself, Steve Canterbury, director of the Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority, said Sunday night.

Riggs was discovered about 12:10 p.m. Sunday and was taken to Reynolds Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 12:46 p.m., Canterbury said.

Riggs was being held on parole violations after being charged with breaking and entering, petty larceny and two counts of first degree sexual abuse of a juvenile on Jan. 17.

Riggs had shown suicide tendencies when he was held at the jail in 1998 on armed robbery charges and was placed on special watch when he returned to the jail Feb. 12, Canterbury said.

He was recently placed on standard watch after several sessions with the jail counselor. Under such a watch, inmates are checked on every 30 to 60 minutes instead of every 15 minutes.

"He was a troubled guy," Canterbury said. "He didn't leave a note. The only thing we found in his cell that gave us any indication of why he did this is that he learned on Wednesday that he had lost custody of his two kids.

"Unfortunately, this is one of the ugly facts of our job. We don't report every time we prevent a suicide, which is a couple times a month, but every once in a while a guy will find a way in spite of our best efforts."

Canterbury said the State Police were at the prison Sunday conducting an investigation. The jail authority is doing an internal investigation, and an autopsy also will be conducted, Canterbury said.

Death closed a most useful career in the passing of Mr. Rine. He was a life-long resident of Marshall county, and devoted almost a half century to teaching rural schools. He was a minister in the Church of Christ, and often conducted services in churches of that denomination about the county.

His last work as a school teacher was done at Gorby school, Meade district. Mr. Rine's interest in county affairs extended into the city of Moundsville, and he was a stockholder and a director in both the Marshall County Bank and City & County Bank. Born in Franklin District.

James Miller Rine was in his seventy-second year. He was born on Rine's Ridge, Franklin district on October 4, 1856, the son of the late George Rine and Elizabeth Miller Rine. he received his early education in the common schools of that district, but was ever striving for further knowledge, and only a few years ago enrolled at West Liberty State normal school for a summer course.

Mr. Rine is survived by his wife, Mary B. Wellman Rine, three sons, Roscoe, and Arthur, of Moundsville, and Otis, who resides on a farm adjoining the homestead farm on Bowman Ridge; five daughters, Mrs. Addie Heath, of Fork Ridge, Mrs. Lucy Conner, Mrs. Charles E.

ANN C. ROBERTS

"Death of an Aged Lady"

[Moundsville newspaper obituary, September 1886]

Mrs. Ann C. Roberts, widow of Captain David Roberts who died about six years ago, passed away at her residence in the Upper Ward last Saturday, September 25. She had been for some time a sufferer from heart disease, and as is usual with that disease died suddenly. Mrs. Roberts was born July 15, 1806 in New Castle County, Delaware. She married Sept. 2, 1832 and has lived in the vicinity of Elisabethtown, now Moundsville, ever since. She has been a consistent member of the M.E. Church for over forty years, and was an earnest, zealous working Christian. Her circle of friends was limited only by her acquaintance. To know her was to love her. Many are the homes into which she has carried sunshine by her smile, and whose inmates she has cheered by her loving words, that will now mourn her absence. The remains were followed to their last resting place in Mt. Rose cemetery, Sunday evening by a large concourse of mourning relatives and neighbors. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Battelle who has been a life-long friend of the deceased."

DAVID ROBERTS

'The Late Captain Roberts - A Glance at His Life'

[Moundsville newspaper obituary, August 3, 1879]

"The death of this gentleman, which occurred at his residence east of town, Sunday night about 11 o'clock, has removed from this community one of its oldest landmarks. In reviewing the life of one whose interests and labors have been so long identified with the development of Marshall County, we find that he was brought to the Round Bottom, this county, from Hagarstown, Maryland, when quite a child. In 1820 he left the farm and engaged in river transportation with flat and keel boats, and dealing extensively in produce. Abandoning this mode of transportation in the South, he returned to Moundsville and built the little steamer 'The Boliver'. In 1832 he was married to Miss Ann C. McClean, of Wilmington, Del., and returning to this place he took his new boat to the Hatche River, making his headquarters at a small town called Boliver. In 1833 he built the 'Denmark' at the Round Bottom, and took her to Red River. 'The Boliver' was taken out of the Hatche River in 1834, and put in the Red River trade, and, it is said, was the first boat that ever ascended this river, with the exception of one small craft commanded by Col. Milam. 'The Boliver' was sunk about six months after entering the Red River trade, and Captain Roberts came back home, but returned shortly and remained on the Red River during the following winter. He returned home in 1845 and commenced preparing the timber for the 'J.E. Roberts', which he built about eight years afterward. This boat was also taken to Red River and run in the Natchetoches and Shreveport trade for about three years, when the Captain sold her, and returned home engaged in agricultural pursuits. After leaving the river he traveled a great deal in the West and dealt extensively in western lands. He bought and sold property where Burlington, Iowa now stands when only a few houses constituted what is now a flourishing city.

"Captain Roberts was born January 15, 1801, consequently was in his 78th year at his death. A striking peculiarity in his character is shown in the preparation he made for his Death about five years ago. While at Boliver on the Hatche River he secured the Seed of a tree, or rather a catawba bean, brought it to the Round Bottom and planted it, from which there grew up several scions, and when he removed from that place to Moundsville, he brought several of them and set them out on his farm, in what is known as Yankee Bottom. These grew to be large trees. About five years ago one of them was blown down during a storm, and he had it sawed into lumber, and make known to Mr. Logan, the undertaker, his intention to have his coffin made of this tree. In accordance with instructions Mr. Logan forwarded the material to Pittsburgh where he had made one of the finest caskets we have ever seen. When Captain Roberts began rapidly declining the casket was brought to this place and held in readiness to receive the remains of the one who had directed its preparation.

"The funeral took place from his late residence east of town on Tuesday, Revs. Warden, Pomeroy and Curtis conducting the services; after which he was followed to his grave by a large concourse of relatives and friends of this place and Wheeling.

JONATHAN E. ROBERTS

Source: Moundsville Echo, Moundsville, W. Va.
Friday, September 23, 1892

Died at his residence near this city, on Sunday about 4 o’clock p.m., Jonathan E. Roberts, who was 50 years of age last May. Deceased was born on the farm on which he died. He was the youngest son of the late Capt. David Roberts and by his father’s will, inherited the 160-acre farm on which he died. He married Miss Amanda Davis, who was a niece of Col. John Parrott, an early settler of Grave Creek Flats, by which name Moundsville was known by the early settlers. It was mainly through Col. Parrott’s efforts that this county was cut off from Ohio County. Col. Parrott was a representative man having represented his district in the State Legislature for several terms. Jonathan E. Roberts had but one child, a son, Joseph Roberts, Jr., who is grown to man’s estate. The deceased was known by his neighbors as one of the most even tempered men in the neighborhood. The person from whom data was obtained for this sketch says that in a life acquaintance with him he never knew him to speak a harmful word of anyone and was always the perfect gentleman at his home, being very much devoted to his family, was always a home boy. Being the youngest son, he assisted largely in accumulating his father’s large fortune. Mr. Roberts was a man who never meddles much in public affairs. In politics he was a Republican, while his wife was a Democrat. There was one feature of the deceased in which his lifelong acquaintances assert in emphatic terms, and that is, no one ever heard him make use of a profane word. His death leaves a void in the community and the surviving relatives have the sympathy of the entire community.

At a special meeting of Lowell Division, No. 52, S. of T., held at the Hall I Lowell on the 3d of September, 1849, on motion of Bro. R. G. McFerling, the following resolutions were adopted, and ordered to be spread upon the minutes:

Resolved, That in the death of brother JONATHAN ROBERTS, his family has been bereft of an affectionate father and devoted husband—his parents of a beloved son—society of an estimable citizen, and our Order of zealous, efficient and ardent member. Resolved, That as an expression of our grief we attend the funeral, clothed in the regalia of our Order, and that we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days.

Note: Buried at Blakeway Cemetery, Danville, Des Moines County, Iowa.
