THOMAS P. SHALLCROSS

WHEELING DAILY INTELLIGENCER, FRIDAY, JULY 17,1891

COL. SHALLCROSS DEAD

An Aged and Prominent Resident
of Wheeling Passes Away

A BRIEF SKETCH OF HIS CAREER

A Resident of Wheeling for Over Half a Century, and in the Government Service Forty Years---He was City Sergeant Long Ago.

Col. Thomas P. Shallcross died yesterday at his residence on North Market street. He was born at Franklin (should be Frankford), Pa., now a part of the city of Philadelphia, April 30, 1818 (Bible says 1817), and was therefore seventy-three years old. He came to Wheeling in 1837. In 1845 he was elected City Sergeant, and filled that position acceptably till he resigned to accept an appointment: under the Federal Government. He was employed continuously for forty years as a postoffice inspector or in similar capacities, and after he resigned that position he served as Deputy U. S. Marshal for some time. He was at one time deputy sheriff also. In these various capacities he made a rare record as a shrewd detective, and although always decidedly a Democratic partisan, he was retained in office through successive Republican administrations.

Colonel Shallcross had been gravely ill since May 6. He was expected to die a day or two ago, but seemed to be clinging to life till yesterday, when he apparently died willingly. Just six months to a day before, and on Thursday, his wife had died, and he expressed a desire to depart on that day, which was gratified.

Colonel Shallcross was the father of twelve children, seven of whom are still living.

MICHAEL STEIN

[Source: Wheeling Register, Wednesday, December 9, 1908]

MICHAEL STEIN DIED ON TUESDAY

WAS PROMINENT IN THE AFFAIRS OF THE COUNTY FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS.

This old and very well known citizen of Ohio County passed away last evening at 5 o'clock at his suburban residence in Elm Grove, not far from the new school building in Cruger's Lane, at the advanced age of 77 years and 17 days. Deceased was one of the best known Germans citizens of this portion of the valley, having resided in Ohio county for many years, during which time he held several responsible political offices, one being as a member of the board of commissioners, and for many years mayor of the town of Fulton. Both of these offices, he filed with ability, and was public-spirited to a degree.

Mr. Stein was a native of Germany, having been born in Hessen, in 1831, a son of Jacob and Catherine (Emul) Stein, the parents of seven children. Jacob Stein was a wagonmaker by trade and died in Germany in 1848. The subject of this sketch learned the trade of wagon making from his father in early life, and in 1850 came to America. He stopped first at Baltimore and then in Pittsburgh, and then located at Somerton, Belmont county, Ohio, where he worked for a year at his trade, in the employ of Louis Jordon. He then went to Bridgeport, where he worked on the old plank road to Harrisville, and in 1852 came to Wheeling, at a time when all of East Wheeling was simply a corn field.

He learned the trade of butcher under John Zoeckler, who was engaged in that business in Fulton, and there he worked for several years. In 1858 he went into business in Fulton for himself. About two years later he again engaged in wagon making for himself, having purchased the business of Henry Kiel. There he continued until 1884, with the exception of the time he was in the military service of the state during the civil war. In 1877 he built a shop at the intersection of Fulton street and the National road, and in 1884 this was handed over to his sons, Henry and Charles, the firm name being Stein Bros. & McClusky.
