Notes for Richard Greene:

From the 1908 Greene Family Reunion Booklet

The courtship of Richard Greene and Rebecca Lawton.

 "Richard was 15 years of age and his sweetheart was 5 years of age when they came across the mountains together in 1796. Seventeen years later they were married at Barlow, 0[hio]. Tradition does not tell us how Richard treated Rebecca on that memorable trip, but I have a suspicion that they became warm friends before the end of the journey-a friendship that ripened into true love later on. No doubt his strong arm and watchful eye protected her on this trip from many perils as it did during their long married life in after years. Richard Greene and Rebecca Lawton were the parents of Mrs. Susan Dana."

 

Married on December 13, 1813 by Rev. David Young, Methodist Minister

 

Marietta Register February 20, 1873

Died in Newport, February 13, Richard Greene, in the 92nd year of his age. Mr. Greene was born in Warwick. Rhode Island, 1781. He came to Belpre, O., with his father's family (John Greene) in 1796. Two years afterward the family moved from Belpre to Newport, where he resided till the day of his death. He was therefore a citizen of Newport 75 years, and out-living all the first settlers of that township.

He was always recognized as a prudent, industrious, kind hearted, right minded, reliable man, whose words and walk were such that people felt him to be a safe and proper man to follow. Not living for show, making no parade, but seeking to be and do what an honorable man and true Christian, as he was, should do and be. His life was a success. Though dead he yet speaks to us in the lives of his children, who, following Him who is the Way, and The Truth, and the Life.

His funeral took place at his late residence, on the 15th, when a sermon was preached to a large assemblege of friends and relatives by J. W. McMaster

Notes for Maria(h) Greene:

Maria is pronounced  "Mariah" spelled "Maria"

 

Note: He removed to the West with his father." Mr. Richard Greene was a man honored and respected; of industrious habits, social nature, and in every sense a gentleman. He was the first in his vicinity to abolish alcoholic drink from his harvest field."

 

The following is from an interesting account of the removal of Richard Greene to the West, contributed by his daughter, Mrs. Maria (Greene) Hays: " He, with his father's family, consisting of father, mother, five sons, and five daughters, left Great Uncle Dan. Greene's farm [Mary Greene's  father's brother. He was 98 at this time], Aug 6, 1796, and went to East Greenwich the same day (with the teams shipped on board a vessel the day after) in company with my grandfather Lawton's family, and my great-uncle Griffin Greene's family [her grandmother's sister was Sarah Greene Griffin's wife]; also a colored Servant named Violet. Called at New York to get some necessaries for the journey, and then shipped for New Jersey and there collected the teams of oxen and horses, came very slowly over the journey and after untold hardships arrived at Belpre, Ohio, about midwinter. The women and children came from Pittsburgh in a'dug-out,' and were nearly lost in the ice, but the teams and wagons came by land. Grandpa Greene was nearly exhausted in his efforts to save his family from peril. They all lived in 'Farmer's Castle' till spring and then farmed for two years in Belpre. In the spring of 1798, came to Newport and kept a house of entertainment on the river bank, which was built with a shed roof, but I do not know how long it served them for a home. I think they built a log house a few years later, which afterwards gave place to a fine large double brick house, which still stands (1885) in preservation. It was built, I think in 1809, and though some small changes have been made, it is very much the same. It has the old-fashioned window-seats, all panelled,and must have been a wonderful thing in those days for a country house. My father (Richard) lived the first year of his married life in the house with his mother, until he built his own log house about one mile below, on a beautiful knoll a little back from the river. The old log house gave place to a large frame house about 1833. Here all the children but the oldest were born,and here they were all married; and in the Newport (Ohio) cemetery all the dead lie buried. My father had a very high sense of honor and I never knew one that thought more of having his family honorable and respected. He scorned mean, low actions, and was in every way a true gentleman. he was very social and enjoyed visiting his friends as long as he lived. Always a great worker, he was never more cheerful than when hard at work on his farm. His only son James, still lives (1885) at the old homestead, and we live on a part of grandpa Greene's old farm."

 

April 21, 1887 Thursday - the last visit dear Mary made to our home.

 

1888 May 2,3,and 4th Susan, Harriet, Sarah, brother James and Myself were together and Sunday the 6th, I parted from dear sister Susan [she moved with her husband to the Chicago area]

Aug 23, I parted from dear sister Harriet. I never expect to meet them again in this world. Harriet moved to first WI and then to Wash State.

 

May 18, 1889, dear Ella, husband and child left the old home to make a home for themselves in Sarahsville.

 

MARIA HAYS

 

Newport -- Again death has entered our midst and borne from us another of our loved ones. Mrs. Maria Greene Hays, wife of the late Richard Hays, died at her home in Newport, Sunday evening, Jan 19th, after an illness of four days of pneumonia. Her death was unexpected by her family and friends. Mrs. Hays was an exceptionally kind friend to all about her, and devoted to her family who will never cease to mourn her loss, and always miss her loving companionship. For the way is long and the way is lone, / But our dear ones await us there, / Where pain and partings are things unknown. / And days are equal fair. Mrs. Hays was a member of the Methodist church for many years . a loving and faithful Christian, a living example of true piety, and especially attached to the church of her choice and religion. Mrs. Maria G. Hays was born in Newport, Nov. 6th 1821 and married to Richard Hays May 15th 1844, she survived her late husband three years, leaving a family of four children all of whom are married. Three of her children were with her at the time of her death, her daughter Mrs. T. I. McRa, wife of the Rev. T. I. McRa being absent at her home in Cumberland, O, and owing to the shortness of time of her mother's illness could not be with her. The community at large sympathize with the family in their great bereavement.

 

Mrs. Richard Hayes, a lady will advanced in years, living in Newport, this county, died suddenly of heart failure Monday night. She was the mother of P. G. and Harry Hayes, Mrs. T. I. McRa and Mrs. Dr. George Gale. The funeral will occur at Newport at two o'clock Tuesday afternoon.

Memoir of Maria G. Hays Newport, O.

Maria Greene Hays, daughter of Richard and Rebecca Lawton Greene was born Nov. 6, 1821 in Newport, O., and died Jan. 19, 1896, in the 74 years of her age. The family home was near the present residence of James B. Greene, Esq., her only surviving brother. There are three sisters who survive her viz: Mrs. Luther Dana, of Chicago, Ill.; Mrs. Harriet Pearce, of St. Paul, Minn., and Mrs. Dr. McClure of Marietta. The subject of this sketch was married to Richard Hays, May 15th, 1844, who preceded her to life beyond four years ago.

        There were given to them four children, two sons - Preston G. and Harry R. - two daughters - Ella R., wife of Rev. T. I. McRa, of Cumberland, O., member of the East Ohio M. E. Conference, and Mira C., wife of Dr. George Gale, Newport, Ohio.

        The departed was a woman of strong mental powers and of good heart and life. She was a thoughtful reader of good books and other literature. She enjoyed thoughts which were clothed in poetic forms of speech as found in our standard hymnals and in poetic verse as written elsewhere. She gave early attention to the call of God as her religious obligations, and at the age of 11 years (eleven) during a meeting held in the Old Brick School house near her late home, while she and Dorcas Dana were praying for each other, were converted about the same place. Two years later she united with the M. E. Church of Newport, of which she continued a faithful member for more than 60 years.

        her last sickness was only about four days; having taken a heavy cold, It developed into pneumonia. The Last day of her life was one of sad yet touching interest. her faculties of mind were quite clear. She greeted the men who lived on the farm and all her neighbors who came in, also the members of her own family and other kindred. The family were permitted to be present, excepting Rev. Mr. and Mrs. McRa, who did not get word in time to arrive before the departure of their blessed mother.

        Mother Hays enjoyed the singing and other services held at her side by the former pastor and wife, who had known her so many years. Among her last words were "Jesus, the name that charms our fears; that bids our sorrows cease," etc., "There is a land of pure delight where saints immortal reign."

        Thus on more of Newport's early residents has gone, leaving to us but a few more in all our community of her age. We are thankful, however, that we have embalmed in memory such men and women as the Greene, Greenwoods, Battelles, Danas, Fergusons, Bosworths, Reynolds, Littles, Adkins, Dr. Gale, Sr., and others, whose works do follow them.

        The funeral services were held on Tuesday, at 2 P. M., at the late home of the deceased. They were conducted by the Rev. E. O. Morris, pastor of the M. E. Church, and Rev. B. E. Edgell, of the Pittsburgh Conference, a life-long friend of the family.

Richard Hays was born April 3d, 1810 [sic. 1820], at Newport, Ohio. He was the youngest of a family of ten children. But one of the number survive him, Thomas Hays, of Decatur, Illinois. He was married May 15th, 1844 to Maria Greene, of Newport. The first year of their married life was spent at Delaware, Ohio. They then returned to their native town and settled on the farm they afterwards bought. Mr. Hays was one of the most sucessful business men on this section of the Ohio River. He was always in advance of his commuinity in improved methods of agriculture. He was of a kind and sympathetic disposition; and those who knew him best loved him most.

He was devoted to his family, and found his greatest earthly enjoyment around his own fireside. Owing to regular habits in life he was well preserved at the age of seventy-one years. But rheumatism overcame him early in last July, and his suffering was constant and intense till death came to his release. He was a regular attendant of the M. E. church of which he was a probationary member. The 2'd Psalm was a great comfort to him. He was attended during his last illness by his wife, children,and grand-children. There is something beautiful in the history of his quiet life. The farm on which he died was the one on which he was born, and the natural scenery he had known and loved from earilist boyhood was the last on which he looked. Thus ended a life of noble industry, which had in it all the elements that go to make up the true husband and father, neighbor and citizen. The funeral services were conducted by his pastor the Rev. B. E. Edgell. The wish had been expressed by him in his last sickness that but little be said concerning him in the brief service he wished held. But his pastor, who from early boyhood had known him, said he felt he must say in conlusion that no man could life the finger of reproach against Richard Hays.

"Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace."

AN AGED SAINT ENTERS HEAVEN

by May Greene Bate

 

Mary Rebecca Adkins departed this life and entered into her eternal reward on December 27, 1929. Born in May 1840 she had attained the age of eighty-nine years. In 1861 she was united in marriage to James B. Greene who preceded her in death twenty years. One daughter, Alice Greene also preceded her in death. Five sons and three daughters mourn the loss of a loving and devoted mother but they rejoice with her in her release from pain and weariness and in her possession of the eternal inheritance.

 

For seventy years she has been a faithful member of our Newport Church and was known throughout the community as an earnest Christian, zealous in good works.

 

She always learned to watch for us

Anxious if we were late

In winter by the window

In summer by the gate.

And though we mocked her tenderly

Who had such foolish care

The long way home would seem more safe

Because she waited there.

Her thoughts were all so full of us

She never could forget

And so we think that where she is

She must be watching yet

Waiting till we come home to her

Anxious if we are late

Watching from heaven's window

Watching from heaven's gate.

Taken from: Official Record and Year Book of the North-East Ohio conference of the Methodist Episcopal Chruch, Fourteenth Annual Session held in the Main Street Methodist Episcopal Church, Akron, Ohio, September 22nd to 28th, 1925.

REVERAND ROBERT W. GARDINER           

               Robert W. Gardiner was born at Fairview, Ohio, on January 7th, 1856, and died in Geneve, Ohio, on March 9th, 1925.

               His parents, William and Mary Gardiner, were intelligent and stanch members of the Methodist Protestant Church. with which church Robert united in early life. In a few years he was received into the Methodist Episcopal Church.

               He graduated fro Scio College in 1880, and then studied medicine two years while superintendent of the public schools in his native town.

               Upon recommendation of the Fairview Quarterly Conference, in 1885, the Barnesville District Conference gave him license to preach, Dr. Louise Paine being the presiding elder.

               In 1886, he was employed as a supply on the Miltonsburg charge. On September 20th, 1887, in Cleveland, he was admitted on trail in the East Ohio conference, and Bishop E. G. Andrews returned him to Miltonsburg with the name of the charge changed to Malaga. His appointments afterwards were Newport, Summerfield, Rural Dale, Newton Falls, Kingsville, Kinsman, Lake Street, Ashtabula, Apple Creek, and Seville. Thirty-five years were thus given to intelligent and honest preaching of the Word, and most careful and sympathetic pastoral labor. He had clear and positive convictions concerning the gospel which he preached, and many profited greatly under his ministry.

               He was ordained Deacon in Massilon on September 29, 1889, by Bishop C. H. Fowler.

               In September of 1889 he was united in marriage with Miss Cora Rea of Newport, Ohio, whose parents, Richard and Frances Rea, were so devoted to the church that their whole family became workers in the church.

               One dutiful daughter came to bless this parsonage home. She and her husband, Vigil Winkler of Geneva, gave the most loving attention to her parents in time of affliction, and comforted the father greatly in his dying hour. Mrs. Gardiner, who labored diligently in the church with her husband survives, but is a very great sufferer.

               On account of failing health Brother Gardiner was given the retired relation in 1921. For a time he lived in Akron, and was a faithful worshiper with the people of the First Church. In 1823, he removed to Geneva, but could no longer participate i the activities of the church. He could only, with a noticeable Christain patience, wait the summons to exchange the scenes of earth for the glories of eternity.

               In the home at Geneva, on the 11th of March, Dr. E. A. Jester conducted funeral services, in which Revs. F. R. Alkine, G. A. Gibson, J. W. Wilson, Elmer S Shepherd, and W. D. Starkey took part. On the same day Revs. Elmer S. Smith, W. A. Rutledge, and Jas. A Rutledge officiated at the interment in Stow cemetery near Akron.

Notes for William Snow Gano:

Taken from a speech give by Miss M. Ethel Hays at the Newport Methodist Church dates about 1960;

"In 1880, after several other pastors had served this charge, Rev. Doan was returned to the Newport Circuit. In one of his quarterly conferences reports he states: "Brother William S. Gano and some of the other young men with several of the young women of the Newport Society have undertaken to pay off the remaining debt on the Newport Church, now amounting to $570, and have succeeded so well that final success is now assured. Those young people deserve much honor for the quiet, but successful and energetic manner in which they have prosecuted this work. It is due to  the members of the ladies Aide Society that we say that Society is the largest subscriber to this fund, and that is in addition to previous payments for the same purpose, amounting to about $397. The truth appears to be that the women have saved the Newport Church. Whether it would finally have been saved without their aid, I know not; bit it is clear just that this record should be made. They have raised and applied to church purposes in fourteen years about $1800." respectfully submitted, J. H. Doan, P. C."

 

Later in the same speech:

"T. I. McRae became pastor in 1866 and it is during his pastorate, in 1888, that the church was improved at a cost of$1700. At that time the from entrance , the vestibule, with the large center steeple and the two smaller cupolas were added. The building committee was composed of Dr. J. M. McElhinney, Mrs. Lydia G. Rea, W. S. Gano, James Kerr, and Richard Rea. On August 3, 1887, T. I. McRae was married to Miss Ella R. Hays, a Newport girl who was a great worker in the church. The wedding ceremony was performed in this church by the presiding elder, W. L. Dixon. Probably this was the first wedding ceremony to be culminized in this church."

ANOTHER SOLDIER BOY - Everett Hays, a son of Mr. P.G. Hays, of Newport who was a member of the Hospital Corps, died at Fortress Monore, Sunday after an illness of some weeks with typhoid fever. His father was notified of his serious condition and went to his bedside early last week. His remains were brought home yesterday and are to be buried with military honors to-day. The soldiers who are at home on furlough held a meeting yesterday morning and decided to attend the funeral in body. If we are not mistaken Mr. Hays is the fifth son of Washington County to lay down his life for humanities sake. What to the five families and homes in to which sorrow and death have come is the whole race of semi-civilized Cubans

               " Miss [Ethel] Hays, whom you just heard, has been our pianist for many years. she has worked tirelessly with our young people and has arranged interesting and appropriate programs for all occasions. Deep in her heart, Miss hays has cherished for years the dream that one day an electric organ would enhance our sanctuary and lend beauty in experssion to our worship services.

               It was in the early summer of 1951 that the Amici Phiathes Class generously voted to give its $400 reserve as the original payment for an organ.  This substantial contribution, along with generous bequests from friends and former members, has given to our church an instrument of pride to all of us and of especial joy to our organist and friend, Miss, Hays. May I digress here to speak of behalf of the organ committee and say "Thank you, friends" for any and every part you have had in this enterprise."

 

Ethel Hays graduated from Newport High School in the Class of 1901, She earned a O.V. B. S. degree in the Cincinnati College of Music in 1930.

Notes for Ella Rebecca Hays:

ELLA McRAE

From; The Daily Jeffersonian, Cambridge, OH; 02 Dec 1924

Ella Rebecca Hays, daughter of the late Richard and Mariah Greene Hays, was born at Newport, Ohio, December 18th, 1854, and passed away to be with God from the M. E. parsonage at Belmont, Ohio, November 30th, 1924. She was educated in the public schools and the select school of Newport, graduating from the same, then took a course in painting, some of her productions being greatly admired. She was converted and joined the church in early girlhood, under the ministry of Rev. J. A. Doane. She soon gave evidence of high talents and displayed genius in her church work. She worked out and had adopted a financial plan far in advance of its day, and by which her church gained fame for its prompt and liberal giving. She was married to Rev. T. I. McRae, of the North East Ohio conference, on Aug. 23rd, 1887. For 37 years she was the joy of the parsonage home and an inspiration to every congregation they served. She was always popular and especially with the younger people. She organized a Junior League in almost every church and was very successful in training the young for the church work. She frequently filled the pulpit to the great pleasure of the congregation, both in her own church and many times in sister churches. As a public speaker she had but few equals. For many years she was a regular correspondent for a number of literary and religious journals and temperance publications. She was interested in ad reform movements and worked with enthusiasm in the. W. C. T. U. organization. No one rejoiced more than she when she saw the terminis of one of the ambitions of her life - the state and nation made dry by the popular vote of the people. She was a life long member of the W. H. M. S. and was the president of the local society at the time of her death. She held about all the offices in the W. F. M. S. and greatly enjoyed the fellowship of its members and workers. Mrs. McRae was a member of The Daughters of the American Revolution. She was the mother of two sons, Rev. Richard O. McRae, pastor of the St. Paul's Methodist church of Delaware, Ohio, and Donald Green McRae, professor of English in the Glenville high school, Cleveland, Ohio. She leaves four grandchildren, one sister, Mrs. George T Gale, and two brothers, Preston G. and Harry R. Hays, all of Newport, Ohio. Her last illness lasted from about September lst to the day of her demise, but it all was born with patience and fortitude. Her beautiful life will live while this generation who knew her, lives. Wearied with the long fight and weakened by constant suffering, she often expressed a desire to depart and be with Christ. For three successive Sabbath mornings during her severe illness she said to her husband, "I think Mother will come today and take me home." While the bells were ringing for the evening services of the church her spirit slipped away to be with God. "Her children rise up and call her blessed: her husband also, and he praiseth her Give her the fruit of her hands and let her works praise her in the gates."

ELLA HAYS MCRAE

        Ella Hays McRae accepted life and its varied talents as a gift from God, to be used for His glory and the uplift of her fellows. The church was her chosen field for exercise of her gifts and faith.

        She was born in Newport, Ohio, December 18th, 1854, and went from the parsonage in Belmont, Ohio, to be with Jesus on November 30th, 1924.

        She joined the church in her early girlhood and commenced to teach in the Sunday School at the age of fourteen. He soul like her intellect was ever widening until it took in the world. her life was saturated with the teachings and spirit of her Lord. The W. F. M. S. was to her and ever increasing delight in its work and influence to help and lift up her sex in the lands where Jesus was not known. She was a constant reader of the best, a through student, a delightful companion. She read history with a zest that few give to fiction. her memory was phenomenal. She was a member of the "Daughters of the Revolution."

        From the church where she was converted and where she was married, we carried her body to its last resting place in mother earth, on the banks of one of the most beautiful rivers in the world, whose murmuring waters shall for all time sing her requiem as they flow in stately majesty from the mountains to the sea. She leaves two sons, Rev. Richard O, McRae, pastor of St. Pauls Church, Delaware Ohio, and Donald McRae, teacher of English in the Glenville High School of Cleveland, Ohio. Cor comfort is in Him who said. "I am the resurrection and the life."

        "Sets as sets the morning stars, which goes

        Not down, behind the darkened west, nor hides

        Obscured among the tempest of the sky

        But melts away into the light of heaven."

Newport M. E. Church

        In 1799, less that one year after Rev. John Kobler preached the first sermon in Ohio by a Methodist minister, Rev. Robert Manley preacher the first Methodist sermon in this historic town. He was followed by Jesse Stoneman, James Quinn, Geo. Atkins, Jacob Young, and G. C. Light. Prior to 1829, the society worshipped in a brick school house just opposite the present site of the residence of Harry R. Hays. A frame house was built a little northwest of the present church at a cost of $800. On the 21st of October, 1866, Centenary Chapel was planned by the Rev. J. W. Hamilton.  then pastor, and subscriptions were taken for its erection. It was no completed until the spring of 1870; was dedicated by Dr. C. A. Holmes, of the Pittsburgh Conference, may 15, 1870; cost $7000. It was improved in 1888 at a cost of $1700. A beautiful chapel was built by the League in 1893 at a cost of $700. it is now one of the finest church properties in the district. Philip Greene, Gordon Battelle, D. D., Joseph Waterman, and Chas. Dand, men of power and influence for God, have been gathered to their fathers; C. D. Battelle gave over sixty years to the ministry; Benj. E. Edgell and John W. Moore all went form this society into the ministry. The church has enjoyed many precious revivals. There has been a steady advance and increase of influence from the beginning. The membership now numbers 104. Epworth League Chapter No. 7276 was organized October 6, 1891. We note that Dr. J. M. McElhinney in in possession of much valuable historical information concerning this society.

 

Taken from a speech give by Miss M. Ethel Hays at the Newport Methodist Church dated 10/1955;

"T. I. McRae became pastor in 1866 and it is during his pastorate, in 1888, that the church was improved at a cost of$1700. At that time the from entrance , the vestibule, with the large center steeple and the two smaller cupolas were added. The building committee was composed of Dr. J. M. McElhinney, Mrs. Lydia G. Rea, W. S. Gano, James Kerr, and Richard Rea. On August 3, 1887, T. I. McRae was married to Miss Ella R. Hays, a Newport girl who was a great worker in the church. The wedding ceremony was performed in this church by the presiding elder, W. L. Dixon. Probably this was the first wedding ceremony to be culminized in this church."

               In 1925, under the pastorate of Reverand R. O. McRae, the church was completely overhauled. The Improvement included a new hardwood floor in the anctuary, new pulpit furniture and carpet in the sanctuary, the installation of art glass windows and artictic redecoration of the sanctuary. In addition, the entire program of improvements cost more than twelve thousand dollars, and entailed a debt of about five thousand dollars.

Notes for Dr. George Thomas Gale:

C. B. Galbreath, History of Ohio, Chicago: American Historical Society, 1925

George Thomas Gale acquired his early education in the home schools at Newport, began the study of medicine in his father's office, and then took his course of lectures in Jefferson Medical College of Philadelphia, where he graduated in 1874, just half a century ago. One of his schoolmates was Dr. W. L. West of New Matamoras, Ohio, and they practiced together a year ad have been lifelong friends. Doctor Gale is an accomplished man in his profession and has taken post-graduate work in Philadelphia Polyclinic. He was associated with his father until the latter's death, and then spent a year with Doctor West in New Matamoras, and afterward he resumed his work at Newport. He has been a member of the Washington County Medical Society since its organization, belongs to the Ohio State and American Medical associations, was for years president of the local school board and has been a member of the Pension Examining Board since the Wilson Administration. He has been county democratic executive committeeman and his family is members of St. Mary's Church. Doctor Gale was a volunteer during the Spanish-American war. For thirty years he has been successfully identified with oil production in Ohio, West Virginia and Illinois. His hobby is good horses, and his fondness for them has been little diminished by the general introduction of the automobile. Doctor Gale married Miss Myra Hays, daughter of Richard and Maria Greene Hays, who were pioneers in this part of Ohio. Mrs. Gale is a direct descendant of [Judge Philip Greene], and a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Three children were born to them, the only daughter dying in infancy. The son, George Hays Gale, born in 1883, was a graduate of Jefferson Medical College in 1906, at Philadelphia, and is now carrying some of the heavier burdens of practice for his father.

The other son, Larry Richard Gale, attended lectures at Jefferson Medical College, but graduated in medicine from the University at Cincinnati. During World War I, he was in training as a medical officer at Fort Riley, Kansas and at Fort Beauregard, Louisiana, and achieved the rank of Lieutenant in the Army Medical Corps. He rendered notable service and had been ordered for oversees duty with the Army division that had been stationed at Panama, but the influenza outbreak caused him to be detailed for service with the troops in home camps, and he never went overseas. This distinguished physician died September 23, 1923.

Notes for Alice Melissa Greene:

E. M. TRACEWELL, senior, member of the well known law firm of Tracewell & Moore, at Columbus, whose portrait is presented on the opposite page, has been a resident of Cherokee County since the spring of 1882. He was born at Parkersburg, Virginia, now West Virginia, in 1847, and is a son of W. N. and L. V. (Brown) Tracewell.

 

W. N. Tracewell was also born at Parkersburg, where for some years he was an attorney. In 1853 he removed to Indiana, and was engaged there in the practice of his profession until shortly before his death, which took place while on a visit in Washington, D. C., April 19,1898. E. M. Tracewell's only brother, Robert J. Tracewell, has been Comptroller of the United States Treasury, at Washington, D. C., since 1897.

 

E. M. Tracewell was reared in Indiana, and studied law at the State University at Bloomington during 1866-67-68. He was admitted to the bar at Corydon, Indiana, in March, 1869. After 12 years of active practice at Leavenworth, Indiana, Mr. Tracewell came to Columbus, Cherokee County, in 1882, where he has continued in his profession ever since. He was first associated with the late Colonial Hallowell, United States District Attorney, later, with T. P. Anderson, now of Kansas City, and since February, 1901, he has been a partner of W. J. Moore. Mr. Tracewell has quietly and industriously pursued his profession, taking part in much of the county's important litigation, and meeting with the success which results from honest effort and a profound knowledge of the law. He commands the respect of the officers of the court, and entertains cordial relations with other members of the Cherokee County Bar.

 

Mr. Tracewell was first married, in Indiana, to Laura E. Lane, who died there in 1878, leaving three children, namely: W. N., who is employed in the Post Office Department at Washington, D. C.; John E., who has been in a clerical position at Denver for the past four years; and Nellie, who is at home. In 1887 Mr. Tracewell was married, in Kansas, to Alice M. Greene, of Newport, Ohio, and they have a family of four daughters and two sons, namely: Grace G., Vallie G., Katherine, Thane, Edward M. and Lucy. The children have been reared in the faith of the Baptist Church, of which Mrs. Tracewell is a consistent member.

 

Mr. Tracewell is fraternally associated with the Knights of Pythias, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, Modern Woodmen of America, Knights and Ladies of Security, and Sons and Daughters of Justice.
