Hedges, Josiah:   Tiffin, O., July 15, ae. 80. He was born in Berkeley Co., Va., April 9, 1778. He left his father's home at an early age, with the determination to carve out his own fortune. His first enterprise on his own account was a trading excursion to New Orleans, with fruit, which he flat-boated from Wheeling, Va., to that point, when the time occupied in making the voyage was six weeks, and when but few adventurous spirits would make the experiment, which was then hazardous and dangerous. He finally, in 1801, one year before Ohio was admitted as a state of this Union, settled in Belmont Co., where he for a number of years was one of its most active and prominent citizens. He was the first sheriff of Belmont Co., and also for a term of years the clerk of the court. Being then of a speculative mind, and being convinced that Northwestern Ohio was one of the garden spots of the world, and that it would settle up with remarkable rapidity, Mr. H. made a journey to this region. He immediately determined upon entering the land upon which Tiffin is mostly built. At that time foot paths were worn around it, by persons who had looked at the land. Mr. H. then proceeded to the land office, and in 1820, at the land sales at Delaware, Ohio, he bought the land which was an unbroken forest. By a prudent and systematic course in disposing of his town lots, Mr. H. had the pleasure of seeing his town increase in population. For a number of years there was much rivalry between Fort Ball (now the second ward) as to which should be the county seat . By the persevering efforts of Mr. H., and by purchasing much of the property on the Fort Ball side, he succeeded in securing the location on the east side. This was in 1828. He then went to work, determined to effect the removal of the United States land office, then located at Delaware, to Tiffin. In this he was successful, and from that time onward Tiffin has progressed rapidly in wealth and population. In 1831 Mr. H. was chosen to represent the county, or the district of which the county was a portion, in the Ohio legislature. He served one session, but preferred paying more attention to his own private affairs, and declined any further political preferment. He was generous and just in his dealings with his fellowmen, and scrupulously honest, benevolent to all Christian denominations, having, with one or two exceptions, donated the lots upon which their churches are erected; and he was liberal towards all public improvements. In all the relations of life, public or private, he was a just and sincere man. He was a good citizen, and a true and steadfast friend. As a husband he was kind and obliging; as a father, affectionate, generous, and indulgent . [Source: "Annual Obituary Notices of Eminent Persons who have died in the United States for 1858" by Hon.

Henderson, E. T.: In the presence of a large assemblage and with imposing service, the funeral of the late Engineer E.T. Henderson took place Friday afternoon, from the home at two and from the Methodist Episcopal Church at two-thirty o’clock.The funeral was under the auspices of Golden Rule Lodge, F. & A. M., Wm. Bramley Division, B. of L. E., and the Ladies’ Auxiliary to B. of L. E., who escorted the remains and the funeral party to the church. The services at the church were very impressive. Music was furnished by a mixed quartet composed of Mrs. William, Miss Peck, Messrs. D. O.Williams and T. E. Stacy. Rev. O. J. Coby, the pastor, delivered the sermon, taking for his text the 3oth Chapter of Psalms, fifth verse, from which he drew many beautiful and comforting thoughts and illustrations. The beautiful and imposing ritual of the Masonic order followed the sermon by Rev. Coby, Mr. G. W. Hoffman acting as Worshipful Master, Dr. A. R. Lydy as Senior Warden, Mr. George Fails as Junior Warden, and Mr. H. M. Ingler as chaplain.
A quartet of masons, Messrs. D. O. Williams, F. W. Whits, Louis Simmermacher and T. W. Beelman sang the Masonic funeral dirge, and impressive prayer by the chaplain concluding this service, after which the remains were given in charge of the B. of L. E., who conducted the final service at the grave. The remains were taken to Zanesville Saturday morning on train No. 4 for interment.
There were many beautiful floral offerings from the engineers, conductors, trainmen, auxiliary, masons and others, all silent tokens of love and esteem for the departed.
Ellis Taylor Henderson was born September 26, 1869, near Athens, Belmont County, Ohio. At the age of 19 he professed his faith in Christ and united with the Methodist Episcopal Church of Caldwell, Noble County. After moving to Zanesville he united with the Presbyterian church of that city. He had been in the employ of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company seventeen years, first in the shops at Zanesville, later as a fireman at Newark. Four years later he was transferred to the New Castle division where he has since been employed as an engineer. Mr. Henderson was united in marriage to Sarah Tetlow Tanner, November 12, 1891. The wife, one brother, Carl O. Henderson, of Mattoon, Ill., survive him, also a stepson, Roy Tanner. The brother Carl is the only surviving member of a happy family consisting of father, mother, and four children.
Deceased was a member of Golden Rule Lodge, F. and A. M., Wm.Bradley Division, B. of L. E., and Order of Redmen of Zanesville.
Mr. Henderson met almost instant death at Lodi on Wednesday morning of the 1st week, about 15 minutes after eleven. He had been at the telegraph office for orders and at the time was on the way to his engine standing near by. His conductor, August Pierce, was with him and the two were leisurely wending their way to their train. Express train No. 45 was due and Mr. Henderson, taking his watch from his pocket to learn the time, said to his companion, “45 is right on time today.” The next instant he stepped off the platform and was struck by 45’s engine and hurled fully eighty feet lengthwise on the platform. Trainmen picked up the unfortunate man, and carried him into the waiting room and hurriedly summoned physicians. The injuries were fatal, however, and in forty minutes life was extinct, consciousness having not been regained. It was a most peculiar accident and the only theory advanced is that Mr. Henderson was laboring under the impression that the express train would stop at the water tank east of the depot (which it seems was a common custom) before stopping at the station. Just as he was about to step off the platform he was warned of the approaching train. In an instant he threw up his arm and noticing the train approaching, attempted to step out of the way, but too late, the iron monster was upon him and in the next instant he was laying unconscious 80 feet away. Mr. Henderson was of a jovial, kind hearted disposition and considering his short residence here, possessed a large circle of friends. His death came as a great shock to all, especially the wife and only brother, to whom is extended the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community.
