Chardon - Fred Coe of Montville, a village in Geauga county, probably will die as the result of his essaying to play the villain of an amateur dramatic performance in the Montville Town hall. The pistol with which the hero shot him in the first act proved to be loaded. [The Mahoning Dispatch; Canfield, Ohio, July 08, 1910- Sub. by Kate Watson]
CHESTER COUPLE BADLY HURT IN HOLIDAY CRASH
Three Chester residents, Mr. and Mrs. B.W. Eddy and Miss Jewel Hill, were painfully injured Wednesday, Nov. 23, in a three-machine collision, just south of Mansfield. Mr. and Mrs. Eddy were on their way to Plain City, and Miss Hill was riding with them as far as Columbus, where she was to visit friends over Thanksgiving.
On a wide pavement, where it was said there was plenty of space for passing, the Eddy machine was sideswiped by a car carrying several college students. This collision whirled Mr. Eddy's car around and directly into the path of another oncoming auto. This car struck the Eddy car amidships. Both cars were nearly demolished, and all occupants injured.
Taken to Hospital Mrs. Eddy suffered a fractured left leg, fractured jaw, and arm. She was first reported in a serious condition, but is expected to recover. She was unconscious when removed from the wreck.
Mr. Eddy received cuts about the face and head, and a severe bump on his forehead. He was rendered unconscious.
Miss Hill has a fractured leg, cuts, bruises and other injuries. They are all confined to the hospital in Mansfield.
Although in a semi-conscious condition, Mr. Eddy insisted upon driving his car away from the scene of the crash. He was removed from the car when Miss Hill's cries attracted passing motorists.
Speeds to Family
Mrs. Marion Parker of West Chardon, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Eddy, was driven to the scene of the accident by Roger McBride of McBride Brothers garage. The injured persons will by brought to their homes as soon as they may be moved.
It was but a few days prior to this accident that Clay Eddy, son of the injured couple, fell from the roof of a garage at Chester, and severely injured his back. He was brought home from the hospital, and is recovering. [1938, newspaper unknown - transcribed by Kate Watson]
Mabel Woolsey, who is now a Burton, Geauga County, is still doing pretty work, notwithstanding she is a lifelong "Shut in", confined to her couch. A white linen finger-bowl doylie, leaf shaped and veined and edged with green, has found its way to the editor's table. Mabel always likes to hear from C.C. friends, but they must not forget to inclose stamps in writing to her
