WILSON, William
Grafton, July 27th, 1887
The Elyria Republican Newspaper, August 4,1887

Born in Yorkshire, England, in 1808, and died at the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. Amos Moon, July 25th,1887, Mr. William Wilson, in the 79th year of his age. Mr. Wilson was united in marriage in the year 1836 to Miss Nancy Finn, in Yorkshire, England, when they moved to this country, locating in Eaton Township, O., where by their industrious habits and arduous labors they purchased a farm, making for themselves a pleasant and comfortable home, where they lived up to the year 1874, when by death he was bereft of his companion. There were born to this union two sons and four daughters, of whom one son and three daughters survive them. Mr. Wilson, since the death of his wife, has made his home with his two daughters, Mrs. Gillmore, of Henry county, and Mrs. Amos Moon, of Weston, Wood county, Ohio, where he received by loving hearts and hands all those kind attentions perquisite to his declining years. Early in life those kind parents, who were deeply loved for their kind admonitions and exemplary life, gave their hearts to Christ, and by their precepts were instrumental in leading their children in the paths of virtue, embracing the same saving faith, in which to trust in life. The deceased was a loving father, a kind and generous neighbor and friend, and his departure leaves an aching void in the hearts of his near kindred. Although a great sufferer during the latter part of his sickness, yet he was never known to complain of his lot, but with a confiding faith centered in Him who was his support in health and in his illness he lived the life of a Christian and ultimately died a triumphant death. His remains arrived at the residence of his son, Mr. George Wilson, on the 26th. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. M. L. Pounds of Oberlin, July 27th, at 2 o'clock p.m., in the M. E. church at LaPorte, where all the children now living, with the exception of the youngest daughter, Mrs. Golden, of California, with his many relatives and friends followed his remains to their last resting place.

WOLF, Jack
Lorain Journal, July 18, 1988 (Incomplete Article)

Jack Wolf, 62, director of the Lorain County Board of Elections, died early this morning of an apparent heart attack after collapsing on a dance floor at an Ohio reception at the Democratic National Convention. Wolf, who was attending his first Democratic convention and was a member of the Democratic Party's Rules Committee, was pronounced dead at 12:51 a.m. at Crawford Long Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. Wolf was named to his fourth, two-year term as elections board director in March. According to Sherrod Brown, Ohio Secretary of State, Wolf collapsed shortly after midnight while dancing with friends at a reception in the ballroom of the Pierremont Hotel that was filled with 500 to 600 people. Brown said someone suddenly shouted that a person had collapsed on the dance floor. Brown said he then called the emergency squad, which tried for about 45 minutes to revive Wolf. Brown said he was aware of past medical problems Wolf had with his heart. 'I know it sounds trite, but Jack died doing what he liked best. He was having fun and he was attending a Democratic Convention". Leonard Camera, the other Democrat on the Lorain County Board of Elections, said "Jack Wolf lived for politics, and (also for) the children of Lorain where he was active in Little League for more than 25 years." Wolf, who was not married, moved with his family to Lorain in January, 1926. His parents, the late Herman and Fenni Wolf, opened a dry goods store in South Lorain. Wolf closed the family store in 1961 and went into real estate and car sales before becoming deputy director. He also was active in various political and sporting organizations, particularly Little League. He was a World War II U.S. Army veteran. Wolf was a member of the Agudath B'nai Israel Synagogue, the B'nai Brith, the Lorain Kiwanis Club. Survivors include a sister, Mrs. Ernest (Evelyn} Ostreicher of Englewood, Ohio and three nieces.

On the 12th inst. at her residence in Brighton, Maryann, wife of Henry Wood, aged 38 years. Elyria Republican, September 20, 1877 (Thursday). The following account appeared under the heading Wellington News: The funeral services of Mrs. Henry Wood, of Brighton, were held at the family residence, on Thursday, 13th instant. Mrs. Wood has been a great sufferer for the past year, no two physicians quite able to agree as to the disease afflicting her. Some protested it was cancer in the stomach, others pronounced it dyspepsis, etc. A postmortem examination proved the cause of her death to have originated in the growing up of the stomach, or becoming calloused so there was no action. Mrs. Wood was a lady highly esteemed by all who had the pleasure of her acquantance, and was deeply beloved by the family circle, upon whom this affliction falls with unusual severity. Mr. Wood is a man widely known as a factory man, and a manufacturer of first-class cheese.

Elyria Weekly Republican, Thursday May 24, 1894, Amherst

The funeral services of Frank D. Wyatt was held at his residence, on Thursday a. m. at ten o'clock, conducted by Rev. Reeder, of Elyria. Seats were placed under the trees in the yard, as the house could not contain the dense crowd of friends who came to pay their last respects to the departed. The floral offerings were very fine and unanimous. We seldom see such a profusion of lovely flowers, which shows how highly he was esteemed. We were misinformed in regards to the bicycles. While Mr. Snyder was driving down the old “Stratton Hill”, the tug, the end of which was a chain, became unfastened and dropped down, striking the horses heels, which caused the runaway. Frank was thrown out a few rods from Mrs. Collins’ house. He struck on his head, which struck a stone, breaking his neck and also his skull, as Drs. Cornwall and Davison found while making an examination the next morning. A gloom has been cast over the entire community over this sad affair. Mr. Geo. Wyatt, of Iowa, is in town. He came last week to attend his brother’s funeral.

Frank D. Wyatt of South Amherst was killed while driving home from his work. He leaves a widow and many friends to mourn his departure. He was thirty-four years of age. Lucy C. Wyatt and James Wyatt appointed administrators of estate of Francis D. Wyatt late of Amherst.
