Jeremiah Roberts
The Passing of Jeremiah Roberts at Crab Creek Has Been a Resident of Youngstown (Ohio) for Forty-Four Years
April 11, 1901 Jeremiah Roberts, one of the pioneers of the county, died at 3 o'clock this morning at his home in Crab Creek, or what is now more properly termed Wick Avenue extension. The death of Mr. Roberts marks the passing away of a man who has lived in this city, or close to the city, for a period of forty-four years. He was one of the most widely known Welshmen in this part of the state, and all those who had the privilege of his acquaintance and friendship respected him as a man who had a large regard for integrity and honor. The late Mr. Roberts was born in Pontyberem, South Wales, January 11, 1832, and in 1857 he came to America. He came direct to Youngstown after reaching this country, and with the exception of a short time he was in the west, Colorado, St. Louis, and a few other places, he has been here ever since. During the last several years he has been ailing, and owing to his feeble condition he was not active in either business or work. Two weeks ago he commenced to decline rapidly and day by day he grew weaker until he succumbed to the inevitable. The direct cause of his death was bronchitis. Besides a wife and three children, Mr. Roberts is also survived by a sister, Margaret, and a brother, John, both in Pontyberem, Wales. His children are: Thomas H., of the Racket Store; W.J., of the Mahoning National Bank, and John R. who holds a good position with the Erie railroad in the ticket office in Cleveland. The funeral will be held Saturday at 2 P.M. Services will be held at the house and Rev. J.B. Davis, of the Elm Street Congregational Church, will officiate. Interment will be made in Oak Hill cemetery. While the late Mr. Roberts was not a member of any church, he was a firm adherent to all that was good and noble, and his influence will be missed in many channel. The family have the sympathy of the entire community in the bereavement of a husband and father who was a blessing and comfort to them all in more ways than one, and his absence in the domestic circles will leave a vacancy that will be recalled with sorrow.
