1 0’clock, conducted by Rev. J. M. Johnson and Rev. P. B. Knepp. A
large audience assembled to pay their last tribute of respect to a
devoted wife, a loving mother, a kind neighbor, and a faithful Christian
woman. Her mortal remains were laid to rest in Glenwood cemetery. She
was converted at a Methodist revival meeting at Salina, Iowa about 44
years ago. Eighteen years ago she joined
the United Brethren church, and at the time of her death was a member of
the society of the Valley Church, Neosho County. Death came to her at
the dawn of the day. The shades of night had passed away. The golden
rays of the morning sun were streaming in at the window when she turned
her face toward the Rescue City. The faithful companions of her youth
and part her loving children were at her bedside. Her feet went down
into the cold stream and her soul passed over on the other side. Quietly
and calmly she gave up her life on earth to live again in that beautiful
land beyond the stars. No night of sorrow and no pain of death ever
enters there. They build no coffins, dig no graves, preach no funerals
and sing no requiems. The
glad songs of praise go up, and the perennial fountains flow on forever.
It is the home of those who have washed their robes and made them white
in the blood of the Lamb. Advanced in years, beloved by her husband and
children and respected by her neighbors and friends she has been
gathered home. The breaking up of the home where father and mother
lived, and toiled so many years is one of the sad things in life. Days
of happiness cluster around that old hearthstone. Too soon they are
numbered with the years of long ago. Those familiar scenes with father
and mother in the old home are things of the past. There is one vacant
chair; it is mother’s.
feel grateful to the neighbors and friends for their kind assistance
during the sickness and death of wife and mother. The L. C. Dunlap and

149. Miller Abram Hamler
Surname : Hamler
Given name : Miller Abram Source
: newspaper clipping obituary
Limestone, May 28. - When a man
of sunny disposition, kind of heart, accommodating as a neighbor,
esteemed in his citizenship, considerate in all his dealing, friendly in
every relation of life, his word ever as good as his bond, departs from
among us even for a better world, his passing is keenly felt far beyond
the confines and circles of his immediate family, his death means
personal loss to his fellow citizens. The late Miller Abram Hamler, of
Limestone township, was that type of man, and Monday afternoon his
mortal remains were laid to rest in Frogtown cemetery was a semi-holiday
among our country folks. Mr. Hamler was a native of Limestone Township,
he had lived in this valley his entire life, his genial manner and happy
disposition were proverbial. He radiated good cheer in his house, in the
community and in the Kingsville Methodist church. He served his township
faithfully and efficiently in offices of public trust, and in matters
pertaining to his township his state and county took an active part. He
died at the age of 66 years and Limestone Township that will know Miller
Hamler no more mourns his passing. The deceased was born in Limestone
Township and died May 23, 1924 at the age of 66 years, 5 mos. He was a
son of William and Martha Hamler, of sacred memory and pioneer residents
of Clarion County. He married Elizabeth Jane Stahlman, thirteen children
being born to this union. All living with the exception of one son,
William, who was called Home September 5, 1920. The children surviving
are: Mrs. John McMahon, Limestone, Mrs. James Pyle, New Bethlehem; Mrs.
John Kirby, Chicago, Mrs. James McLaughlin, Summersville, Mrs. Jacob
Clinger, Limestone, Quincy, Andrew, Elmer, John at home, George of
Frogtown. Last March 19,1924, he married Mrs. Clara (Stahlman)
Shoemaker, of Porter township who survives. Also by 19 grandchildren,
three brothers and two sisters: Thomas and Vene Hamler, Llewellyn,
Nebraska, McGruder Hamler, Corsica, Pa., Mrs. Myrtle Parker, Fairfield,
Neb.; Mrs. James Snyder, Orville, Ohio. One sister entered the peaceful
valley years ago, Adda Williamson, Humansville, O. The funeral services
were held Monday afternoon at the Frogtown church, Rev. Parsons, of
Kingsville M. E. Church officiating. Interment followed in the cemetery
adjoining. One of the old settlers, who in the early days of farming
toiled, slaved and whenever saved. He feared God and loved his
neighbors, a fine specimen of christian manhood, he was respected by all
who knew him. To his wife and children is extended our sincere sympathy.
May God give the promise grace and strength. We are reminded there is
"but a step between us and death." – John James
150. Simon Jeremiah Stahlman
- 1923 Posted by Eric Swab April 19, 2005
Jeremiah Stahlman died at the Brookville Hospital at 9:12 o'clock in the
evening of Monday of last week, July 16, as a result of injuries
received at his farm in Warsaw Township on Tuesday afternoon, July 10.
Mr. Stahlman was the son of Bennewell and Elizabeth (Shaffer) Stahlman
and was born on the homestead in Warsaw Township on June 4, 1855; he
spent his entire life where he was born. On June 29, 1882, he was
married to Miss Alice F, a daughter of Edwin Bullers, the ceremony being
performed at the bride's home by Rev Mr. Wonders. Mrs. Stahlman survives
her husband with all of their three children; Bertha, wife of John King
of Kingsville; Calvin C., of Rose Twp., and Lincoln, deputy state
apiarary adviser for Jefferson and Indiana Counties, living at home.
Eleven grandchildren also survive Mr. Stahlman. Two of Mr. Stahlman's
brothers - Jackson W. and John Parker, both of Warsaw Township preceded
him in death; the following brother and sisters survive him; William of
Pittsburgh; Lucy, widow of James Carrier, Warsaw Twp.; Mary, wife of
George R. Ballentine, Rose Twp.; Mrs Kate Moons, Monogahela City, and
Mrs. Racheal Chambers, Ellwood City. Mr. Stahlman was a member of the
Hazen Presbyterian Church, presiding elder for 25 yrs, superintendent of
the Sunday School, member of the Hazen Lodge No. 448, P. O. S. of A. and
the Kirkman Grange. His funeral services were conducted in the Hazen
Church last Thursday afternoon by Rev. Newcome assisted by Rev. D. E.
Hepler, of Clarion, and Rev. O. L. Winger, of Hazen. Mr.
Stahlman's standing in the community was attested by the attendance at
the funeral which was one of the largest ever known in this region for a
private citizen. The oral tributes were unusually numerous, the donors
including the O. of A., Cook and Helscel, the Presbyterian Sunday School
and Mr. and Mrs. D. L. Taylor; one wreath bore the initials "KKK".
Interment was made in Temple
Cemetery. The accident which resulted in Mr. Stahlman's death occurred
while he was hauling timber for a gas rig for Cook & Helscel. Just
as Mr. Stahlman's team emerged from his private lane to the main road,
the binding of the load became loose. Mr Stahlman was riding on top and
was pitched off and the natural jerking of the lines frightened his
team. Mr. Stahlman struck the ground heavily on his side and right
shoulder; a wheel ran over his right leg and broke it, and he also
received internal injuries in the abdomen. Mr. Stahlman was among the
most prominent residents of Warsaw Township and was identified with
progressive movements in agriculture, and other lines wherever they
would help to promote the interests of the community at large. He was a
lumberman and raftsman on the North Fork years ago, later becoming a
farmer. He served as president of the Jefferson County Farm Bureau ever
since it was organized half-a-dozen years ago. He was intensely
interested in improving farming conditions and especially in thorobred
stock; personally he raised Holstein cattle and was probably Jefferson
County's most ardent champion of the black and whites. He was a director
of the Jefferson Agricultural Association for several years, active in
staging the annual Brookville Fair, which always contained results of
his own skilled farming, as well as specimens of what his friends and
neighbors could do. Mr. Stahlman was deeply interested in the progress
of the Hazen community and always ready to do his share of whatever
would best promote the interests of his home neighborhood. His church
and Sunday school work was not confined to his home church but extended
to similar activities in and beyond the county. Politically Mr.
Stahlman was a Republican but politics did not appeal to him and the
only office he ever held was that of school director for nine years,
from 1904 to 1913, which he filled with the fidelity which characterized
whatever he undertook. Note: Transcribed by Kit Ritter. Taken from

195. Richard E. Royer
March 19, 2006 from Terry Haas
RICHARD EUGENE ROYER Born
05 February 1923.
Died 11 September 1943. U.S. Army, rank of Sergeant died in the
Line of Duty, Non Battle (DNB) (War Dept. Files). His plane was
lost with all hands and I don't believe the bodies were ever recovered.
They were still in training at the time, he as a gunner, and this
happened off-shore of Texas.
I've been going through more
papers and found a postcard Richard Eugene Royer sent his mother, Ora
Belle Stahlman Royer (John Heenen, John L., John S., John). The Postcard
is titled "Harlingen Army Gunnery School, Harlingen Texas",
and reads: "In the Lower Rio Grande Valley, aerial gunners
are trained as key men in a famous "Four Flying Horsemen"
team--pilot, navigator, bombardier and gunner. They receive their
silver air crew wings on graduation." It was sent by PVT. Richard
Royer, 3rd Training Sqd, Harlingen, Texas, postmarked Harlingen April 2,
1943. He wrote:
"Dear Mom: Maybe
this will give you an idea of what I'm doing here in Texas. The first
picture at the top left shows a gunner in the air ready for action. Top
right shows them after a flight bringing their guns from the plane.
Left lower shows planes in formation. Lower right - firing at night with
tracer bullets. This is all interesting and maybe some day we'll take
care of some Japs this way.
Your son "Dick"
It makes me sad
every time I see his photos because he was such a young man, as were
