Ella Adams
"So live that when thy summons comes to join that innumerable throng which moves to that mysterious realm, that thou mayst be sustained by an unfaltering trust, and approach they grave like one who wraps the drapery of his covers about him and lies down to pleasant dreams."
Such was the life lived and the departure from this world of Ella Adams, daughter of Eli and Nancy Jacks. She was born in Sabina, O, Sept. 4, 1862 and departed this life February 9, 1902, aged 39 years, 5 month, and 5 days. During her girl life and young womanhood she was the light of the family. Her ever joyous disposition shed a halo of gladness about her and she was ever the solace and comforter of an afflicted mother. On February 13, 1884, she was happily united in marriage to Henry Adams. To this union were born five children, two of which in infancy preceded her to the spirit world. On March 3, 1890, under the ministration of Rev. S. S. Fleming, she was happily converted to God, and from thence lived a worthy, consistent, Christian life. At the institution of the camp of Royal Neighbors in Sabina, she was one of its charter members. The emblems of the order, faith, modesty, courage, unselfishness, and endurance were compatible with her nature and were faithfully practiced. Her love for the order and its members was ardent, and sadly will she be missed in the council of the camp. Just previous to her departure, she called her relatives around her and bade each an affectionate farewell, assuring them of her bright prospect of heaven and desiring all to so live as to meet her there. She leaves father, mother, husband, children, sister, and brother to mourn the loss of a dutious daughter, as affectionate wife, a doting mother and a loving and obliging sister, and the community a valued neighbor.
The funeral was held in the M.P. Church, Wednesday forenoon, sermon by Rev. W.J. Elliott, and burial services in charge of the Royal Neighbors. Interment in the Sabina cemetery. (Contributed by Lori Hellmund from family records)

Hannah Jacks
Mrs. Hannah Jacks, the subject of this obituary, was born in Clinton county, Ohio, on the 26th day of July, 1820 and departed this life June 10th, 1903 at the age of 83. She was the daughter of Joseph and Katherine Doan and fourth child in a family of seven children. She was a sister of the late Timothy Doan, the benevolent hearted Christian gentleman so well known in this community in which he lived.
In 1835, she was married to Isaac Jacks. To them were born 13 children, five boys and eight girls; all of whom lived to full manhood and womanhood, except two girls who died in infancy.
She leaves behind five boys, the youngest of whom is 46 and oldest 68, and two girls, the youngest being 48 and the oldest 54.
At the time of her death she had 40 grandchildren and 43 great grandchildren living.
In 1861, during revival held by Revs. Stephenson and Middleton at the old log meeting house in Jasper township, Fayette County, now known as Center M.E. Church, she was happily converted, embracing the faith of Christ and was baptized.
She lived a faithful and consistent Christian until her death. Her works of charity and benevolence were many so that it may be said of her “This woman was full of good works which she did. She was full of good works as a tree is full of fruit. Many are full of words, who are empty and barren of good works. She was a great doer. She didn’t talk great things, she lived them.”
Among other good works she was remarkable for her skill and tact in midwifery. In that vocation, she was called far and near and was a great blessing to all whom she attended, always receiving the approbation of the physician in attendance.
She was not of those who had any estate wherewith to give in charity, yet she was able to do in charity, working with her hands and walking with her feet for the benefit of the poor. What her hands found to do in the live of her work and calling, she did with all her might and persevered in.
The weather was never too cold or hot or stormy for her when her services were demanded.
A monument to her memory by her grave is immaterial. She has built in this world by her work a monument by which she will be remembered and succeeding generations may be laught to remember; not where she died, but where she lived.
On Friday, June 12, 1903, at 9 o’clock a.m., the children, relatives, and friends of the deceased assembled at her late residence and followed her remains to the Center M.E. Church, where funeral services were held, Rev. McNulty officiating.
His text was Mark 14:8 “She hath done what she could,” from which having a good subject, he preached an able sermon, well worded and well timed.
From the church the body was taken to the Sabina cemetery, followed by a large concourse of people where with proper ceremony it was quietly and reverently laid away to await the resurrection day.
Her loss is greatly lamented by all who knew her, but they need not weep for her, she is taken from among them to occupy the place prepared for her, for Christ says “If I go away, I will prepare a place for you. In my father’s house are many mansions.” and Paul says “A house not made with hands eternal in the heavens”. She rests from her labors and her works follow her. Now she is gone, but we can think what she did while she was with us. She hath done what she could.

Lydia Sears Jacks
MEMOIR
Lydia Sears Jacks was born at the old Sears homestead in Fayette county, Dec. 30, 1843. She was one of five children, two sons and three daughters, born to Pleasant and Nancy Sears, only one of whom, Isaac Sears, survives here. She was reared in a home where God's name was honored, her parents being devoted members of the M. E. church. The religious teachings and influence of this home led her in early life to accept Christ has her personal Saviour, and she united with the Center M. E. church. Throughout her long life of seventy-seven years, seven months and twenty-seven days the faith taught her in childhood was her stay and comfort.
December 30, 1863, she was united in marriage with David Henry Jacks, with whom she walked life's pathway for more than half a century. Seven children were born to them, Louella Bowmaster, Martha King, Nancy Thursbar, Hannah Huffman, Laura Tobin and Luther and Harvey Jacks, all of whom are still living. She is also survived by fourteen grand-children, and two great grand-children.
Mrs. Jacks was a kindly disposed and industrious woman, devoted to her family, and a kind-hearted neighbor and friend. Since the death of her husband Sept. 30, 1914, she has made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Laura Tobin, and husband, Andrew Tobin, who have been untiring in their love, devotion and solitude for her comfort. For the past three years her strength had been steadily waning and she with her loved ones could but realize she was nearing the end of her life's journey.
Saturday evening, Aug. 27th, 1821, as "Day was dying in the West
When Heaven was touching earth with rest," she lay life's burden down and entered into her eternal rest.
"A holy quiet reigns around,A calm which life nor death destroys;And naught disturbs that peace profoundWhich her unfettered soul enjoys.Life's labor done, as sinks the clay;Light from its load and earth combine to say How blest the righteous when they die."
CARD OF THANKS.
We desire to thank our neighbors and friends for their many kindnesses during the sickness and death of our dear mother, for the beautiful floral offerings and all other expressions of sympathy, and to the singers for their message of consolation in song. --- The Children (Contributed by Lori Hellmund from family records)

Nathan Linton
Wilmington, O., Feb. 11, ae. 81. He was born on the banks of the Delaware River, Bucks Co., Penn., Jan. 17,1778, and with his father's family emigrated thence to Ohio, in 1802. The family stopped first at Waynesville, Warren Co., then a place of considerable note. In 1804, he raised his first crop in the limits of what is now Clinton Co., and has, from that time to this, steadily cultivated the same lands. In 1805, his father's family moved into the hewed log house, which is still standing in a dilapidated condition on the home farm. He commenced his career as a surveyor, in Ohio, in 1803. He married Rachel Smith, who then resided on Walnut Creek, in Highland Co., Jan. 31, 1806, and in 1807, moved his young bride into a log cabin, which stood upon the same ground since occupied by his residence. During the summer of that year, while absent on a surveying excursion, a fearful tornado passed over his residence, unroofing, and blowing large forest trees upon the cabin, his wife, all alone, taking shelter under the puncheon floor, and under the bed, seemingly the only place of safety she could have found. When the county was organized, in 1810, he was appointed surveyor, which office he held for a period of about 20 years, when he declined a reappointment. From that time to the day of his death, he held various positions of trust and confidence. [Source: "Annual Obituary Notice s of Eminent Persons who have died in the United States for 1858" by Hon.

Benjamin Smith
Well Known Eureka (KS) Merchant Succumbs After a Short Illness
Benjamin Smith, one of Eureka's oldest merchants, died about midnight Monday night after an illness of two weeks. For twenty-seven years he has been in Eureka, and during most of that time has been in the clothing business. Almost every one in the county knew him and to know him was to respect and admire him. The hardships and privations which he endured in war and the sickness and suffering since, would have hardened some, but it seemed to sweeten and refine his life and make him more charitable to his fellowmen. He was a man against whom unkind things were never said.
Mr. Smith leaves a wife and three children. He was a soldier in the Civil War, and his death was due indirectly to a disease contracted in the service. Twice during the war Mr. Smith was captured by the Confederates, and was confined in Libbey and Andersonville prisons.
The funeral was held last Wednesday afternoon at 4 o'clock, the business houses all closing for the ceremony. The Rev. G.S. Ricker was the officiating clergyman, and the Odd Fellows lodge, of which Mr. Smith has been a member for more than a quarter of a century, had charge of the ceremonies. The music was furnished by Miss Vandenburg, Mrs. G.L. Bailey, M.W. Little and J.B. Mason. The pall bearers were Edwin Tucker, T.E. Dittemore, Zenas Harlan, James Alter, John Seawright and T.J. Caywood. The body was buried in the Greenwood Cemetery.
Benjamin Smith was born on August 6, 1826, in Duchess County, New York. At the age of 12 he moved to Ohio with his parents. On May 5, 1856 he married Miss Charlotte Abbott, of Harveysburg, Ohio. After his marriage he moved to New Vienna, Ohio. In 1873, he came to Eureka, and has been in business here every since.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith had four children, Clarence A. Smith, who died in September 1879; Mary Smith Morris; Emma Smith and Madella Smith. Mr. Smith joined the Baptist Church about forty years ago. Since coming to Eureka, he has been associated with the Congregational Church, but was not a member of it. [Eureka Herald (Greenwood, KS) - Sub. by Loretta Smethers Stuber]

Scott Wheeler
Scott Wheeler, son of William H. and Jeannie Retherford Wheeler, was born April 28, 1899 in Liberty Township, Ross County, Ohio. He departed this life at his home near Washington Court House, Ohio, February 4, 1929. He spent most of his boyhood in Ross County moving there with his parents from Highland County. They lived there but a year, then moved to Clinton County where he spent the last seven years of his life. Scott never united with any church, but he was honest, upright, and temperate and his habits and had repeatedly expressed his assurance in Christ. He was remarkably kind in his cheerful disposition, loyalty to friends, and generous devotion to those near and dear to him merited the large measure of love and esteem accorded to him by those who knew him best. For the past year he had been in failing health but through all of his sickness he never complained, always bearing his suffering patiently, hoping that God would spare his to raise his children. He was united in marriage to Catherine Dolph of Martinsville, Ohio, June 18, 1924. To this union there were born two daughters, Reba Jean, age three years of and Virginia Eileen, age 20 months. Those who survives him are his wife, two children, father, mother, two brothers, Lloyd and Hasea, both of Martinsville, Ohio, and one sister, Mrs. William Lee, at home and a brother, Clifford, who preceded him in death, beside the host of relatives and friends by whom he will be sadly missed.
