­ELISABETH (HOLBERT) EDDY

The subject of this sketch, Elisabeth Holbert, was born in Virginia, July 23, 1818, and departed this life at Williamstown, W. Va., June 26, 1900, aged 81 years, 11 months, and 3 days.  She was married to Nathan Eddy, February 23, 1837, and to them were born 11 children, three of whom preceded the Mother to the spirit land.  In 1848 she became a member of the Brownsville Baptist Church and was baptized by the Rev. Jas. Wood.  She was faithful and earnest in all her church duties.  In 1861 the husband and father died leaving her to bear the burdens alone, but the Mother bravely setting own sorrow aside cared for her family and raised her children to be honest and usefulness and as it has been said, may be said of her, "Her children rise and call her blessed".  Her daily life was proof of the religion she professed.  Hers was the charity that speaketh no evil.  For several years she patiently waited for the call to come up higher.  To me, she said, "I always prayed to raise my family and am still here, it is his will".  The writer of this tribute to her memory was for 5 years a member of her family and the writer with many others remembers her home as a haven of rest for weary teachers.  She came from a long lived family, her father living to 101 years and 6 months.  She has left 8 children, 59 grandchildren.  At her deathbed were gathered her children, a relative, and one son had come from Kansas.  Rev. Watson Dana spoke from James 4:14.  She rests beside the husband of her youth in the cemetery on the banks of the Muskingum, but she still lives in hearts of those who loved her and knew her worth.

Asleep in Jesus blessed sleep, from which none ever wakes to weep.

Arlando Eddy

FATALLY INJURED:

Arlando Eddy, the Victim of a Rail­road Crossing Accident.

From the Marietta Register of the 24th ult, we get the following account of the manner in which Arlando Eddy met fatal injuries:

"The B.& O.  yard engine, push­ing a cut of cars through the west side yards,  about 9 o'clock,   this morning struck Arlando Eddy's milk wagon on the Oilman Avenue  cross­ing,  completely demolishing it  and injuring Mr.  Eddy.

Mr. Eddy resides at No. 959 Fort Street and conducts a dairy farm just north of the city. He has quite an extensive ado on the West Side and he was making his regular morning delivery at the time of the accident. He is somewhat deaf in one ear and for this reason failed to hear the alarm bell at the crossing. He drove onto the track immediately in front of the approaching train, with the result that the wagon was caught squarely on the end of a box car and rolled, perhaps,   fifty yards.    Mr. Eddy was powerless to escape from the wagon until the box had been mashed away and he then rolled out at the side of the track.

The train was in charge of Engineer White, Fireman Matthews and Brakemen Callahan and Crippen, the latter two being on top of the cars, but for some reason failed to see the wagon until the train had struck it.

The injured man was taken to R. B. Hart's office, where an examination revealed that his nose was badly broken, his scalp laid bare by an ugly gash several inches in length and he was otherwise badly bruised.

After his wounds were properly dressed, he was removed to his home, where unless he is injured internally, he should get along all right.

A nephew of Mr. Eddy's, who usually makes the morning trip with him, had left the wagon but a short time before, which was perhaps very fortunate for him.

Policeman Chamberlain and several other men happened to be near the crossing at the time of the accident, and all of them state that the train was not moving unusually fast.     It is their opinion that the horse stopped on the crossing, thus letting the train have a fair show at the wagon. The horse was rolled several yards down the track, but finally managed to break loose from the wagon and escape uninjured.

A later examination showed that Mr. Eddy's skull was crushed, and that he had suffered internal injuries, from the effects of which he died at 6 o'clock Monday evening.

Mr. Eddy was born in Monroe County, Ohio, November 24, 1854, son of the late Nathan and Elisabeth Holbert Eddy, but removed to Pleasants County many years ago, residing at Maxwell, where he built up a find merchandising trade.     About a year ago he went to Marietta, engaging in the dairy business, in which he was very successful. He was the Democratic nominee for sheriff in this county four years ago, but was defeated by a very slight majority.

He was a member of the A.F. & A.M. of St. Marys, and of the Maccabees of Marietta. He is survived by a wife, four brothers and three sisters.

The funeral services were held in the Gilman Avenue M.E. Church of Marietta, and the interment took place on Wed­nesday afternoon in the Oak Grove Cemetery of that city. A large number of Masons and other friends from St. Marys attended the funeral.

 

 

(This article was probably published in the Marietta  Register,   Marietta, Ohio.)

Arlando Eddy, the West Side dairyman, who was run down by the B.& 0. train on the Gilman Avenue crossing, last Thursday morning, died from the effects  of his  injuries  about  6  o'clock, Monday evening. The unfortunate man had sustained internal injuries, which, together with the fact that the bones of his head were severely crushed, made his case much more serious than was at first suspected, and, in spite of the best efforts of the attending physicians, death was the only relief to his sufferings.

Mr. Eddy was born in Monroe County, Ohio, November 24, 1854, and was consequently past fifty years of age. He removed to West Virginia, a number of years ago, and located at the town of Maxwell. Fortune seemed to smile on his efforts and he was able to accumulate considerable money. Tiring of life in  the West Virginia hills, he decided to come back to his native state, and about a year ago he came to this city where he started a dairy, and where he has been very  successful, making by his strict attention to business, a large  number of friends who will mourn his  untimely death.

He was a Mason, having belonged to that order at St. Marys, W. Va., and he was also a member of the Maccabees of this city.

He is survived by a wife, four brothers and three sisters, his parents having died a number of years ago.

Funeral services will be held from the Gilman Avenue M.E. Church, Wednesday afternoon, at 3 o'clock, and burial will be made in Oak Grove.
