Life of Mr. Cadot
John Julius Cadot was born in Scioto county, Ohio, February 14th, 1829 and died at Toledo, Ohio, August 8th, 1896. He came to this city when he was 18 years of age and clerked for the late Julius Regnier. In a few years he went into business with the late Chas. Henking the style of the firm being Henking & Cadot, then Mr. Alfred Henking was taken in as a partner and the firm was Cadot, Henking & Co.
About 1856 he opened up a wholesale and retail grocery for himself in the old Hoy property opposite the Public Square now occupied by Harry Frank’s Sons, where he continued until 1479 [sic]. In May 1859 he was united in marriage to Mary B. Cohen, of Pomeroy, who died in Sept. 1882. Four children survive them Blanche, Will, Julius and Perley, one child dying in infancy. He had an attack of the grippe about four years age from which he never entirely recovered.
Last December he went to Toledo to make his home with his son Julius. His mind becoming impaired and needing constant attention he was taken to a hospital the last week in February where he received every attention. All of the children were at his bedside ad remained with him until the last. Out of a family of nine children he was the oldest. Three sisters and one brother, L. Z. Cadot, of this city, have passed away while James, William, Cicero and Seymour survive him.

J. J. Cadot
Mr. J. J. Cadot, whose funeral services took place today, was at one time one of the most prominent men in the city. He was a stirring, enterprising man whose money went into every enterprise which was was [sic] calculated to benefit his town and people. He was a large subscriber to the stock of the old Gallipolis, McArthur & Columbus R. R., and a liberal assistant to it in every way probably too liberal for his own good.
He was a kindly hearted man that never turned a deaf nor calloused ear to an appeal for assistance. When a young man, he was exceedingly handsome, and a fine tasty dresser and his general appearance would have attracted attention anywhere. He was a descendant of Claudius Cadot, the first male child born in this city and who was a soldier in the war of 1812.
In the day of the final reckoning of the good and the bad there will be found many a good and noble deed credited up in the Book of Life to the name of J. J. Cadot.

Caldwell, Lloyd Marlin

Caldwell Boy Falls Off Truck And Dies Here
Accident Occurs Near His Home At Swan Creek
Marlin Caldwell, 10-year-old Swan Creek boy, fell or jumped off a moving truck last evening and died in a few minutes after he was brought to the Holzer Hospital at 7 o'clock. The back of his head was crushed in and the boy was gasping for breath when he reached the operating table.
Marlin was one of eight or nine children of Calvin Caldwell, who lives on the Frank H. Mills farm and near the Mills Home.
The accident occurred near the Swan Creek Bridge. The elder Caldwell was hauling corn to a silo and several of his boys were riding on the rear end of the truck. Though this writer was unable to communicate with any member of the family, the report was current that Marlin said something about jumping off and killing himself just a moment or two before he fell or jumped. This was the first highway fatality in the county since Memorial Day, when three men were fatally hurt near the Children's Home.
Since the foregoing lines were written it is learned that the boy's full name was Lloyd Marlin Caldwell and his age was 10 years and 10 days.
Surviving, besides the parents, are nine brothers and sisters: Calvin Jr., Irene, Earl, Farrell, Leroy, Donnie, Bobby Eugene, Frank, Osa Maxine and a grandmother, Mrs. Osa Martin of Carroll, O.
Funeral services will be conducted at 10 Thursday forenoon at Kings Chapel by Rev. Chester Cremeens. Burial by Stevers.

Caldwell, Mary E. [Garlic]

Mrs. Caldwell Dead
The funeral services over the remains of Mrs. W. W. Caldwell, whose obituary is recorded in this column, were held at the family residence, Sunday evening and over four hunderd people, with saddened hearts, listened to the impressive rites performed by Rev. Robert W. Pierce of Gallipolis. The large crowd was a testimonial of the high esteem in which this noble woman was held. Following the services, Undertaker Stevers' auto hearse followed by over sixty automobiles slowly moved to the little family plot on a sandy hill side, overlooking the old home where the deceased was born and reared, and there her remains were consigned to the silent tomb. The family wishes to express their thanks to friends, relatives and others who so kindly assisted them in their sad hour of bereavement.
Mary E. Garlic was born in Gallia county, Ohio, Oct 4, 1884, and died July 29, 1922, aged 37 years 9 months and 25 days. She was married to W. W. Caldwell on June 13, 1906. to this union were born six children, namely: Odra G., James ?., Climena H., Mary Phyllis, William H., and Robert E., all of whom survive her.
At the age of 16 Mary was converted and joined the M. E. Church at Cherrington. I know how vain it is to gild a grief like this with words, yet those of us who are left to stand on the shore and gaze with tearful eyes toward her happy home realize that her condition is better than our own, but nevertheless, it causes us to weep and mourn, and it is not for our condition but because we are separated from one so young, so beautiful, so faithful and so kind. Her pale form sleeps beneath a seven hurd bow of hope, but her spirit has winged its early flight to the God who gave it, for the Bible says, "He made the woman to keep the house, and to be the joyful Mother of Children." "Praise ye the Lord."
We have known her all her life and we can vouch that her joy and pride was in pleasing her husband and her children and keeping a clean house, not only this but to please all whom she met.Mary was so kind, so cheerful, so loving, so sympathetic and so honorable that a friendship of hers was a valuable possession. Mary made no pretenses but lived as to say about one true and honest drop of blood was worth all the hypocrit blood that courses so many veins. For these reasons we can say she has gone to join the choir invisible whose music is the gladness of this world.
Mary not only leaves her husband and children, but her mother, Mrs. Emanline Garlic, brothers William L., of Sunset, Ind., E. L. of Huntington, W. Va., J. O. and H. C. of N.Y. and one sister, Mrs. Grace Bay of N.Y., also a host of friends and relatives.

Mary to heaven has gone
And she can never come back.
But those who hold out faithful
May follow in her track.

And only God knows why.

She was one of Meigs county’s successful school teachers for several years, after which she went into the mercantile business with her two brothers at Parkersburg, W. Va., for a period of seven years.
Two brothers and two sisters survive her, namely, E. S. Wolfe of Parkersburg, W. Va., E. H. Wolfe of New Kensington, Pa., Mrs. Nathan McDade and Mrs. Lillie Wagner, both of Letart Falls, Ohio, and one half-sister, Mrs. Emma Wolfe of Plants, Ohio.
She was joined in marriage with Mr. J. T. Callahan at Parkersburg, W. Va., Jan. 15, 1903. They have found great happiness in each other through these fifteen years of their married life, and our brother has the sympathy of his many friends in this great bereavement that has come upon him.

Our well-known citizen, I. R. Calohan, Esq., died on Tuesday forenoon. Some weeks since, when we spoke of his illness, strong hopes were then entertained of his recovery, but, soon after, the disease assumed a more malignant form, and though he had the best medical skill our city could afford, still he continued to sink until, as above stated, he very quietly passed away. The deceased had been a resident of our city over 35 years, and by his honesty and uprightness had won the confidence and respect of all. He served two terms as County Treasurer.

Campbell, Allen

Allen Campbell Dead
Allen Campbell, one of the good citizens of the Waugh Bottom neighborhood, died Friday morning at his home near the mouth of Horse Creek. His death followed an attack of influenza. Mr. Campbell was born in Ohio township, June 22, 1851, and at the time of his death was 70 years 6 months and 8 days old. He was a farmer by occupation and always took an active part in the affairs of his community. His wife was Miss Ella Carter of Chambersburg. The children born to this union are Herman and Charles Camabell, now living in Hungtington, W. Va., and Mrs. Ruby Rose of Bladen.
Mr. Campbell's life was associated with a bit of pioneer history, his grandparents, settling in this county, near his birthplace, in 1806. They came from Culpepper County, Virginia when Mr. Campbell's father, George Campbell, was one year old. They had to endure all the privations of pioneer life. During the war of 1812, Mr. Campbell's father was in great danger from the Indians and his mother often hid the children thru the day under a drift pile on the river bank. They had to do their trading in Gallipolis and their nearest mill was twenty seven miles away, upon the Guyan river. The corn for their bread they ground by hand or grated it on a tin grater made from an old pan. Their meat consisted of deer and wild turkey. The bears would not allow them to raise any hogs and the wolves often destroyed all their sheep.
When ever they went to church or to visit a neighbor they carried their rifles with them.
The readers of our younger generation will hardly believe that these facts once occurred in their neighborhood which is now thickly populated and almost void of any signs of pioneer life.
The funeral services over the remains of Mr. Campbell were held at the Swan Creek M. E. Church Sunday evening and were largely attended. Rev. Earl Cremeans pronounced the funeral sermon and Undertaker J. W. Stevers had charge of the burial in the church cemetery.

Campbell
From Friday's Tribune
Charles G. Campbell, a native of Green Twp. and long a resident of Bidwell, died last night in a Cleveland hospital. He was about 85 years old and made his home with his daughter, Miss Hattie Campbell, who was a Y.W.C.A. secretary. He is survived also by a son, Harold, a druggist in Columbus.
Mr. Campbell was the last survivor of his generation of a well known family, that of William and Wealtha West Campbell. He was a brother of Mrs. John E. Mills, who died some months ago at Island Side, and was an uncle of Mrs. Harry Maddy, Robert and William Campbell of this city. He was a fine type of Christian gentleman. Mr. Campbell’s wife, Florence Sawyer Campbell, died at Bidwell some years ago.
His body will be brought back to Bidwell and the funeral will be held in the Bidwell Methodist Church at 2 p.m. Sunday. Burial in Fairview Cemetery by Coleman & Son.

The Williams trio, with Mrs. Steve Thomas as accompanist, sang and burial was in Fairview Cemetery by J. L. Coleman & Son. Pall bearers were William and Robert Campbell, Harry Maddy, Harry Scice, E. E. Hatfield and Edwin McCormick.
Mr. Campbell would have been 86 years old on March 1 and up to his last illness which was but ten days, he had been remarkably well and active. Until eight years ago, after the death of his wife, when Mr. Campbell went to make his home with his daughter, Miss Hattie, he had been a resident of this county and Bidwell was his home for years.
In addition to the daughter, a son, Harold of Columbus also survives, but was ill and could not attend the last rites. There are two grandsons, Fletcher Campbell who is in service at Camp Rucker, Ala., and Charles Campbell of Columbus.
Miss Campbell was accompanied down from Columbus by her cousins, Mrs. C. G. Nida and Arius Sawyer. She returned with Mrs. Nida today and will go on tomorrow to Cleveland where she is associated with the Y.W.C.A.

Campbell, Florence Sawyers

IN MEMORY
Florence Sawyers Campbell was born at Porter, Ohio, April 13th, 1859, and died Wednesday morning, July 10th, 1935, at the age of 76 years and three months.She joined the M. E. church at Westerman when quite young, and was a devout Christian the remainder of her life.
In 1887 she was united in marriage to Chas. G. Campbell. They were the parents of three children, one dying in infancy, Harold of Columbus and Hattie of Ashville, N. C., and two grandchildren, these with the husband, are left to mourn her loss, and a sister and two brothers are left to mourn her loss.
Previous to her marriage she was a teacher in the Gallia County schools for twelve years. She believed in doing the things worth while, and was untiring in her efforts to make a success of her work, in the home, the school room and elsewhere.
To us so closely associated with her through the years her death leaves a void. She was our friend- always true.In the quiet of the evening, among the flowers she loved, she was suddenly stricken, lingering but a few days-and then-they told us she was dead.
Rev. Stephenson, assisted by Rev. Brewer, talked from the text "All are yours." Mrs. Harris Doepping sang very sweetly "Sunset and Evening Star" and "Some Day the Silver Cord Will Break." We know that all is well, and that again we shall clasp her hand.

Campbell, Jim [James Bodkins Campbell]

Jim Campbell, Aged 86, Died this Morning
Came To Gallipolis Out Of Slavery In 1865 And Made Thousands Of Friends
Jim Campbell, who was about as well known to Gallipolitans as the Courthouse or the Park, died at 6:30 this morning at his home at the upper end of Fourth ave. and at the edge of the golf course.
Though many realized that the end was near for the one-time slave, the news of his passing brought a sigh of regret as it spread from person to person, among colored and white, old and young alike.

Here a Long Time
Jim or "Ole Jim", or "Uncle Jim" had become a sort of institution here, without ever suspecting how genuinely he has endeared himself to the folk among whom he had lived for 74 years.
Jim's death was due to dropsy. Failing health compelled him to quit as a janitor for the Columbus Southern Ohio Electric Co. a year or so ago, but that concern provided him a pension and he did not want. When his illness became hopeless a few days ago, a colored man was engaged to remain with him and take care of him.
Funeral service will be held at 2 o'clock at the Paint Creek Baptist church, with Rev. B.R. Reed in charge, it was announced by Harry Alexander, a nephew of the decedent. Burial in Pine St. cemetery by F.J. Entsminger.
Jim was born a slave on the plantation of Joe Alexander in Monroe county, W. Va. (then Virginia) in January, 1852. "Marse" Alexander owned 10 slaves, Jim often remarked, but never whipped any of them. As the Civil War drew to a close in 1865, Mr. Alexander called in the slaves to the main house and told them: "You are just as free as I am. You can go or you may stay." Some elected to go North. They were given an old war horse, which they took to Lewisburg 20 miles away and sold the animal to a white man headed for Charleston in a covered wagon. Jim, a boy of 13, traveled in the same direction, as did other freedmen, including his stepfather and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Levi Alexander.
At Charleston they saw a steamboat, the General Crooks, for the first time. A few days later they aboarded [sic] another boat, the General (or is it Governor) Meigs, and came to Gallipolis. That was in the spring of 1865, Jim related, and when they walked up the river bank here, men were putting in the foundation of the Riverview Hotel, long since abandoned.

Canaday, Cassius M. C.

Sad Death
Mr. Naaman Canaday’s Infant Son Falls From an Upper Window and is Killed
An accident that brought the most poignant sorrow to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Naaman Canaday happened at about 4 o’clock Thursday afternoon.
Mrs. Canaday, her daughter, Miss Blanche Canaday, and a Mrs. Osborn were up stairs at their home at Island Side, engaged in cleaning house. Their infant son, Cassius M. C. Canaday, two years old the 20th, of next June, was playing about under their very eyes, but in one unguarded moment he darted to a window that had been raised, and which came nearly to the floor, lost his balance as he turned to run away from it and fell backwards to the pavement below, just as Miss Blanche was rushing forward to seize him.
He turned over in falling, his little skirts going over his face, which saved it from disfiguration, but the skull of the front part of the head was badly fractured, and the little fellow knew nothing more in this life, passing away six hours later. The fall was from twelve to fourteen feet. It was a very attractive child, and was fairly idolized by the household, it being the first in many years, and the heart of every one will go out in sympathy to the bereaved parents.
The funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m., Saturday, at the family residence, by Rev. A. J. Hawk, the interment by Wetherholt following at the Pine street cemetery.

Canaday, Naaman Reuben

N. R. Canaday, Aged, Retired Grocer, Dies
Nearly All His Life Was Spent About Corner Of Sycamore And First Ave.
Naaman R. Canaday, dean of Gallia County grocers at the time of his retirement Jan. 1, 1938, died at 1:30 this morning at his home on Island Side. He was 85 years old last May 27.
His retirement was forced when he fell and broke his hip and since that time he had been bedfast, and except perhaps for an occasional interval, his infirmities steadily increased. And his passing occasioned no surprise to those who had tenderly ministered to him during his prolonged invalidism.
Stuck To His Last
For more than 60 years he conducted a grocery at First and Sycamore, a record not previously attained in this county, it is believed and he lived next door during all that period.
Mr. Canaday was born in Old Virginia, a descendant of a slave-owning progenitor and a son of Joshua and Lydia Canaday. Before the Civil War and when but a child he came to Gallipolis with his parents, who did not believe in slavery and wished to live apart from those who did believe in it. On reaching manhood’s estate, Mr. Canaday married Edna Abbott. She died Aug. 6, 1921.
Surviving him are a son and a daughter, Mrs. Blanche Lee, wife of Joe Lee, and Naaman Canaday; nine grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren, and one brother, Pleasant Canaday of Columbus. Descendent was a member of the Episcopal Church and of the Knights of Pythias.
Interment will be made in Pine St. cemetery, but the funeral arrangements were not completed early this afternoon. Hayward will have charge.
Mr. Canaday was a pleasant, genial man, tenderly devoted to his loved ones, and he had many friends and few or no enemies.

Canaday, Reuben S.

Death of Mr. Reuben Canaday
News of the death of Mr. Reuben S. Canaday was received here Wednesday evening by his brothers. He died at the hospital at Dayton, O. Tuesday, May 31st, 1904.

W. H. Miller, of Grace M. E. Church, of which Mr. Canaday was a member.
Mr. Canaday left here last October in perfect health, except this his eyes were bothering him very much. Sometime during the winter or spring he was stricken with paralysis, with which he lingered along when he was taken to Dayton Hospital.
He left a wife and sons, Will, Reuben and Fred of Wellsville, O., James and Scott of Xenia, and daughters Mrs. Bell Corning of Xenia, and Mrs. Myrtie Losey of Logansport, Ind., to mourn their loss. He also left brothers James C., Plezd and Naaman Canaday, merchant of this city, and sister Mrs. Wm. Kennett.
He was the son of Joshua and Lydia Canaday, fine old people who have passed away, and was born in Patrick county, Virginia, coming here when young. He was a stirring business man full of push and energy, clever, accommodating, honorable in his dealings, and a member of the Masonic fraternity, under whose direction he will be laid away in the Pine Street Cemetery to await the glorious morning of the resurrection.

Canaday, Thyra Lorain

Death of a Little Girl
When Mrs. James H. Canaday died a few weeks ago, she left two little boys and two little girls. Since the death of Mrs. Canaday, at least for a month past, he has been living in his old home just above the old Canaday store at the corner of Second and Spruce street, his wife’s sister and his wife’s brother, Harry Benham, living with him and Miss Benham taking care of the children, and all getting along nicely under the circ*mstances.
The little girl that died Wednesday afternoon at 3 o’clock was the third child and would have been three years old next January. Her name was Thyra Lorain. She had always been a delicate child and the day before membranous croup developed and though everything possible was done for her, she passed away in twenty-four hours. She was a bright, pretty child and her death following so soon after the death of her mother is a very sad event to the family.
Her funeral services will be conducted at the house by Rev. L. L. Magee, Friday afternoon, the interment following at Pine Street Cemetery by Hayward & Son.

Canterbury, Luther Ambrose

Death of Mr. Canterbury
Mr. Luther Ambrose Canterbury, son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Canterbury, of upper Third Street, was released from his agonizing condition by death at 11:30 o’clock, Friday evening, March 23, 1900. His funeral services will be conducted at Grace M.E. Church at 2 o’clock Sunday afternoon, by Rev, L. L. Magee, pastor in charge, the interment following at the Pine street cemetery by Wetherholt. The pall bearers were selected from comrades of the Hospital Corps in the Spanish- American war, and who served their country in that capacity.
The circ*mstances of Mr. Canterbury’s death have been given and are familiar to all. His injuries were received Saturday evening, one week ago, at the residence of Andrew Pickens in Green township, and he was brought to the home of his parents on Sunday. He got along well until Wednesday, when a change set in for the worse and delirium and unconsciousness followed for most of the time until the end.
He was 23 years old the 18th of last January and was one of nine children, being the fourth son and eighth child, his brothers and sisters being as follows: Charles, of the 31st U.S. Vols., now on the island of Mindanao, 1100 miles beyond Manila; William, Joseph, Clinton and Elza, at home; Mrs. Alice Kyle, of Lancaster; Mrs. Sadie Barker, of Nelsonville and Mrs. Josephine Bowen, of this city.
He was a steady, industrious young man of good reputation over town and among all his acquaintances, and an employee of the Fuller & Hutsinpiller furniture factory. At home he was a favorite among all. Being ever kind, pleasant and thoughtful of his parents and brothers in the family, and always solicitations as to their welfare, the money that he earned going into the family fund whenever necessary for their comfort or pleasure.
His death came with crushing force to them and they are utterly prostrated by grief, but trying to be submissive to the divine will which doeth all things well. They are also comforted with the belief that he, knowing that he could not survive, sought and obtained that divine blessing which made him happy to the last moments of consciousness, and which left a smile upon his countenance when he passed away.
Capt. Bovie of Co. C was not here at this writing, but it is believed that on his arrival arrangements would be made for the company to turn out and take part in the funeral obsequies.
Among those who joined the Hospital Corps when he did were Will Cherrington, Dr. Earl Schaefer, Jno. P. Hanna, frank Shank, Ira W. Booten, Jr., Will Needham, Harry Soules and others. The pall bearers selected are William Cherrington, Ira W. Booten, Jr., A. r. Fox, James Mears, Frank Shank, John P. Hanna, Dr. Earl Schaefer being substituted for any of the foregoing not able to serve.

Aleshire’s Company and serving three months and afterward enlisted in the old 33d O. V. I. with Col. Montgomery and serving till the close of the war, and is a pensioner for disabilities received and is in feeble health.
He found in her a noble companion ever willing and ready to render service to him and her household. Four weeks ago she was taken to her bed and while her sufferings were extreme she was conscious and patient to the last. The immediate cause of her death was peritonitis. Two years ago she was operated upon at the Protestant Hospital at Columbus for a cancerous growth and when taken ill felt that she would not recover.
She was a member of the W. R. C. and Junior Vice President and sent her badge to the lodge with her farewell and best wishes before she passed away. She had been a member of the M. E. Church since 14 years of age, lived a consistent, kindly, religious life and her entire acquaintance is plunged in grief at the cruel separation that death has made.
