Zanesville, O., Feb 19- The 2 year-old child of Miles Adams, a resident of the Seventh ward, was buried yesterday. His death was caused by the drinking of concentrated lye.

Buckingham, Ebenezer, was killed at Zanesville, Ohio after a bridge collapsed, 21 Aug 1832. [National Intelligencer, November 10, 1832 - Contributed by KT]
It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Ebenezer Buckingham, Esq. of Muskingum county. It appears by a postscript in the Zanesville Gazette of Wednesday last, as well as by information derived from other sources, that some of the trestles under the new bridge over the Muskingum having given way, in consequence of a sudden rise in the river, the deceased, who was one of the proprietors, proceeded to the bridge for the purpose of securing it. While thus engaged, on Tuesday evening, one of the piers was unexpectedly carried away by the flood, and Mr. B. and his men together with two long reachers of the bridge, precipitated into the stream. Some of the hands, we understand, were immediately rescued from their perilous situation; but three or four of the them, together with their employer having become entangled with the falling ruins, unfortunately sunk to rise no more. Their bodies had not been found at the latest dates.
Mr. Buckingham was generally known throughout the State as a highly intelligent useful & enterprising citizen; and at the time of his decease, was one of the Commissioners of the Canal Fund, which office he had filled, for a number of years, to the entire satisfaction of the people of Ohio and their Representatives. His death may be considered as a public loss. [Observer and Telegraph [Hudson, Ohio] 30 Aug. 1832]

William Thomas Meloy
William Thomas "Bill" Meloy, 89, passed away after a brief illness on December 1, 2012, in Vancouver, Washington. He was born on June 24, 1923 in Zanesville, Ohio. Resident of Tinley Park, Illinois, for 56 years, he had been visiting his son.
He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Aldona (nee Bardy or Bardauskas), dear friend Marion Tibbetts, parents James Robert and Hilda Perone Meloy, two brothers, Carl and Robert James, "Bob," and a sister, Katherine Leggee (William).
He is survived by his devoted children Patricia Meloy-Junkroski (John) of Marengo, Illinois, and Michael (Debi Steffan) of Camas, Washington, his beautiful and talented granddaughters Lisa Andrewjeski (Paul) and Linda Wade (Ty), four delightful great-granddaughters Bailey, Layla, Ella and Emilie, all of Washington, and his three younger sisters, Juanita Darling, (John) of Indiana, Ann Fleischer (Warren) and Alice Jackson (Arthur), both of Florida, many nieces and nephews, and his decidedly pampered cat, Rocky.
In World War II, Bill served in the United States Marine Corps Pacific campaigns on Bougainville (July-Nov. 1943), Guam (July-Nov. 1944) and Iwo Jima (Feb.-March 1945) where he was present for the raising of the American flag on Mount Suribachi. While he rarely spoke of his time in service, he did tell a few stories of his time overseas. One involved sending a letter to his brother Bob who was then serving in the Army. The letter was returned undelivered and stamped INTRA-ISLAND MAIL indicating his brother and he were on the same island. They were able to meet there, halfway around the world from home and in the midst of the chaos of war.
Children were major beneficiaries of Bill's generosity and attention. He worked for many years as custodian for Grissom Junior High School. His greatest joy in life came from the children he knew. In particular, he befriended the special needs students at Grissom who loved him in return as "Mr. Bill." Their drawings, stories, and cards were saved by "Mr. Bill" and even adorned the walls of a room in his home. During his life, Bill enjoyed amateur astronomy and ground his own 10-inch telescope mirror at the Adler Planetarium, Chicago. In the summer and on crisp, fall weekends, his children remember waiting up until very late for dad who worked nights as a lithographer in Chicago. After a late supper, the three would make hot cocoa and haul blankets out to the picnic table on cool, clear nights to bundle up and look for meteors, watch the aurora borealis, or hunt for constellations until sleepiness or the chilly night air sent them in to bed. Fishing with his buddies as a young married man and coaching Little League when his children were young were other pastimes he enjoyed. A lover of music, for a time, Bill was member of an a cappella men's choir that benefitted the hearing challenged and deaf. He was a member of both the VFW and the American Legion. A memorial service with Marine Corps Honor Guard was held in the Willamette National Cemetery, Portland, Oregon, on Thursday, December 13. [Unknown newspaper, January 2013 - Sub. by Patricia L.
