Lemuel L. Hoskinson
Death of Major Hoskinson.
Lemuel L. Hoskinson was born in Licking county, Ohio, June 7, 1821, and died in Warren Indiana, February 24, 1888, aged 66 years, 8 months and 17 days. His father died at New Corydon, Blackford county, Indiana, in January, 1848. His mother died in Dayton, Ohio, in 1864. The deceased responded to his country's first call for volunteers while at Columbus, Ohio, in 1861, by enlisting in the Third Ohio Regiment for three months. At the expiration of this service he immediately joined the army again and served through the balance of the war. The regiment to which he held, and as his discharge papers, except for his three mouth's service, were destroyed by fire in Cincinnati, there are no data at hand by which to determine his standing. It is understood, however, that he was a commissioned officer and ranked as major when finally discharged. At the close of the war he came to Bluffton, Ind., and began business as a merchant tailor. While in Bluffton he was married to Miss Sibbie Phillips, January 19th 1868, she being his second wife. After this he changed his place of residence quite often, living in Winchester, this State, thence to Lincoln, Pana and Mount Vernon, III., Montezuma, Iowa, Logansport, Indiana, back to Buffton, and thence to a farm in Franklin county, Mo. From this last place he removed to Dayton, Ohio, where he lived three years, and then came to Warren three years ago last December, and remained here following his trade until death suddenly brought his life to a close. He had been complaining of feeling badly for about three weeks, and a few days before his death had a premonition of his approaching end. This impressed him so much that he told it to a few of his intimate friends, and emphasized the statement with a gesture of his hand that in three weeks he would not be living. On the day of his death he was feeling worse than usual and lay upon the lounge in his work shop. Between three and four o'clock a customer called and tried on a suit of clothes. Mr. Hoskinson got up and examined them and found them to be all right. The customer went out to get some change and while Mr. Hoskinson was sitting in the chair waiting for him to return he remarked that he felt quite sick and laid down upon the lounge again. He was immediately attacked with vomiting and while his wife was holding his head the cold sweat ran off his forehead. On laying him back he requested her not to leave, him and in a few moments more his spirit had fled. He was a member of Monroe Laymon Post G. A. R., and of the Knights of Labor Assembly at this place. He was a man of much more than ordinary ability, was ready in debate and a good public speaker. A wife and two children (son and little daughter) besides four daughters and three sons by his first wife, are living, together with a number of brothers and sisters in different parts of the country.

Robert Johnson
The subject of this sketch, the Rev. Robert Johnson, was born in Licking County, Ohio, September 15, 1830, and died at Columbus Grove, Ohio, December 16, 1912, aged 82 years, 3 months, and one day. He was the son of Robert R. and Mary Johnson, and one of a family of seven boys, one of which, John Johnson, survives him.
Soon after his birth his parents moved to Union County, Ohio, where he lived until 1850, when he moved to Shelby County, Ohio. Here on February 22, 1859, he was united in marriage to Catherine E. Edwards. To them was born one child, which died February 1860, and his wife died March 2d the same year. November 25, 1861 he married Lydia Margaret Curtis. To them were born eight children, five boys and three girls. Of these are now living two boys and three girls. Again he was bereaved in the death of his wife who passed away February 20, 1867. About October 1, 1875 he moved to Columbus Grove. Here on March 6, 1879 he was united in marriage to Sarah Cunningham. To them were born three boys. Altogether he was the father of twelve children, eight of whom, with twenty-one grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, and his last wife, survive him.
Robert Johnson was converted to God on New Years Eve 1846. He at once united with the Methodist Episcopal Church, in Union County, where he was living at that time. For sixty-six years he lived a converted life. In spring of 1854 he joined the Wesleyan Methodist Church, in which for the remaining fifty-eight years of his earthly life he remained a member. He was licensed to preach by this church in August 1867, and was received into its Conference, and traveling connection in August, 1868, at Dayton, O. He was ordained as a minister in 1870. The ministry of this servant of God was a fruitful one. He was instrumental in the conversion of hundreds of souls, and in the organization of many churches.
He was a soldier of two wars, not only serving under the blood-stained banner of Jesus Christ, but under the flag of his country also. October 1, 1862, he responded to the call to arms for the defence of the Union against rebellion, by enlisting in Co. F. 20th Regt. O.V.I. and went to the front. May 12, 1863 he was wounded in the right arm, and while in the hospital, was taken prisoner and confined in Libby prison for a time. October 1st he was released by exchange of prisoners and was returned to his regiment, and was in every battle in which it was engaged until July 22(?), 1864 when he was wounded a second time in the right shoulder by a bullet which remained in his body to the end of his life. Entering this service as a christian man thoughout it all he kept faith with his Lord.
Throughout his long and useful life this servant of God exemplified by a goldy (sic godly?) walk and conversation the religion he professed and preached. In (blurred) afflictions, in personal trials, and many hardships of service, he was patient and enduring, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Such a man living well, died well. His last hours in the midst of much bodily suffering were (blurred) of spiritual triumph. He could literally say, “I have fought a good fight. I have finished my course. I have kept the faith, henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge will give me in that day.” Deat h had no terrors for him. In the full possession of his faculties he awaited its approach, sure that the Captain of his salvation would meet him in the shadow, and take him home to heaven. Of course he died triumphant.
“Servant of God well done, Thy glorious warfares past. The battles fought, the vict ories won, and thou art crowned at last.”
Before his death he made all arrangements for his funeral. He requested that Rev. J. T. Brown, Belle Center, Ohio, preach his funeral sermon from 37 Psalm, 37 verse “Mark the perfect man and behold the upright; for the end of that man be peace.” By his request the Rev. Daniel Carter, D. D. pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church, in whose church the funeral services were held assisted (blurred) the services, as did also the Rev. Ralph Kohr, minister of the Presbyterian church, who was present. This service was followed by a brief service of the local Post of G. A. R., at the conclusion of which the body was conveyed to the Turner cemetery, and laid away by loving hands, in its last resting place.
