GLADWIN MAN KILLED IN CRASH SUNDAY MORNING

 

   A 62 year-old Gladwin man was killed about 6:45 a.m. Sunday morning in a crash on M-18, south of Howard Road. Dead at the scene was William . Laycock, of Sage Township. He was driving his pickup to work at Brown Machine in Beaverton where he was a plant protection employee, when the fatal accident occurred, Gladwin Undersheriff Walter Scott said.

   Laycock's truck was apparently struck in the rear by a car operated by Gary L. Yeager, of Flint. Yeager was treated at the Gladwin Hospital for a chest injury, facial cuts and an injured jaw and released, hospital authorities said. The force of the collison sent Yeager's car down the east side of the highway and into the ditch. The pickup was hurtled to the west side of the road where it is believed to have flipped, Scott said.

ILLNESS FATAL TO JUDGE LONG

Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 2:30 p.m. at the Church of the Brethren, three miles south of Beaverton. Burial will be in Highland cemetery, Gladwin. Judge Long's death ended more than 30 years of service to Gladwin county. Although only 54 years old, he had served six years as Probate Judge and nine years as County Poor Commissioner. As a citizen of Tobacco township he has occupied every township officie wiht the exception of the road commissionership.

 

   The editorial on page 2 was printed before news of Judge Long's death had reached The Record office.

 

   Born April 14, 1880, in Drake county, Ohio, Andrew Long attended the county rural schools near his home. After graduation from high school he spent five years at Manchester College in Indiana. He came to Gladwin county in 1904 and began teaching school in the rural schools in Tobacco township. He was married to Miss Weltha Miller on January 15, 1905, and together they cleared the 80 acres in section 8 of Tobacco township that has since been their farm home.

   From 1905 to 1914 he was variously occupied in teaching school in Tobacco township and the Beaverton public schools. He gave up his teaching in the latter year to concentrate on his farming activity.

 

Worked in Bank Shortly after the war he was employed as a clerk at the State Bank of Beaverton. He workde off and on at the bank for several years. The Reverand Harvey Hartsough who will preach the Judge's funeral service tomorrow is a lif-long fried of the Longs and was his room-mate when they attended Manchester College. Reverend Hartsough makes his home in North Manchester, Indiana.

ANDREW LONG

 

   Andrew Long, son of John and Nancy Long, was born near Greenville, Drake county, Ohio, April 14, 1880, and departed this life at his home near Beaverton January 8, 1935, aged 54 years, 8 months and 24 days. Andrew was the fourth son on a family of eight children. His early education was obtained in the district school, and on completing the courses there he decided to continue his education in Manchester College. Here he spent parts of five years. While at college he met Miss Weltha Miller of North Manchester, Ind., who later became his wife. They were married in their new home at Beaverton January 15, 1905. A couple years later they moved to the farm which they had purchased, and where they have since spent all their married years. Three children came to bless this home, two sons and a daughter.

   For nine years Mr. Long was a teacher in the high school and in the grades of Beaverton and vicinity, and for 15 years he served as a member of the Beaverton school board. For more than 20 years he constantly held offices of public trust in the township and county. Six years ago he was elected to the office of Judge of Probate for Gladwin County, which office he held with increasing favor until his resignation was accepting January 3. While holding this office he endeavored to make friends with every person with whom he came in contact. Especially did he feel a parental interest in every boy and girl in the county.

   While at Manchester College he united with the Church of the Brethren and to this faith he ever remaining loyal. He was one of the early members of the Beaverton congregation, and was active in building the present church house. He was faithful in attendance at services, and took an active part in the work of the church and Sunday school. Often in the earlier days this meant some sacrifice; a long drive with horse and buggy through cold and strom, or walking when the drive seemed impossible.

   During the past year his family noticed with increasing concern that his health was gradually declining, yet with his characteristic determination he pressed on, only to be compelled at last to succumb to the dread disease that held him a prisoner. On October 12 he took his bed, form which he never rose, even for an hour. Twice he received the holy anointing and throughout his illness he was ever hopeful that God would heal his stricken body. But God had other and better plans for him, and after an illness of nearly five months he peacefully obeyed the summons which came for him on Tuesday at the noon hour. Perhaps after all, the greatest work of his life was the example he left to us of patient endurance in the midst of fiery afflication.

   Mr. Long possessed primarily a home-loving soul. Those who lived in his home knew best his gentleness, his beautiful patience and self-denial and his constant concern for the family circle. They were the center about which all his life revolved. He had a keen interest in business and in the affairs of state. A wholesome optimism pervaded his life, which made his judgements ever lean to the side of mercy. He is probably the only alumnus of Manchester College to choose the office of judge.

   He is survived by his wife, his three children, Lowell of Wanatah, Ind.; Betty Miriam and Wendell at home; and one little grandson Leon Eugene Long. The death of Mr. Long is the first break in the home circle of eight children: William of Mt. Carroll, Ill.; Harvey of Mt. Morris, Ill.; Jesse of Dunseith, N. D.; J. B. of Greenville, Ohio; Samuel of Bradford, Ohio; Cyrus of Fontana, Calif.; and Mrs. Mary Irick of Flora, Indiana. All of these visited him during his illness, except the two brothers who live so far distant.

   May we sum up his virtues in these familiar lines: His life was gentle, and the elements, So mixed in him that Nature might stand up, And say to all the world, "This was a man." Funeral services were conducted on Thursday at 2:30 from the Church of the Brethren by the Rev. H. L. Hartsough of North Manchester, Ind., a former college friend of Mr. Long. Burial was in Highland cemetery at Gladwin.

MRS. BERT LONGSTRETH

 

   Mrs. Bert Longstreth died in Denver, Colorado, Feb. 20, where she went a few months ago for the benefit of her health. Her son Russell accompanied her and was with her until the death. Mrs. Longstreth was thought to be much improved until she was taken sick with influenza which proved fatal.

   Dona Jane Poling, was born in Hocking county, Ohio, Dec. 21, 1883, and was at the time of her death 36 years and two months of age. She was married to Bert Longstreth June 1899. To this union were born nine children, five daughters and four sons. The family came to Gladwin county nine years ago and settled on a farm in Grout township. She is survived by her husband, nine children, parents, five brothers, one sisters and a host of relatives and many friends.

   She was converted and joined the Methodist church. She was a kind and loving mother, always cheerful and ready to look on the bright side of life. To know her was to love her. She put her trust in God and said, "If it were God's will she would love to be reunited with her family", but God loved her more and bade her to come. The body was brought to Gladwin for burial and arrived here Feb. 24. Short services were held at the home and at the Highland cemetery, where the body was laid to rest, conducted by her pastor, Rev. Vaughan of Beaverton.

 

Mother, thou art gone to rest, An this shall be our prayer, That when we reach our journey's end. Thy glory we may share. Oh, let us think of all she said, And all the kind advice she gave, And let us do it now she's dead, And sleeping in her grave. With aching hearts and tearful eyes. We laid her down to rest; Yet while we wept we felt that she Was sleeping with the blest. No sickness, grief, nor sighing Can dim her features now; A crown of dazzling glory Shall rest upon her brow. Oh, let us meet that wife and mother In that bright world on high, Where all is joy and gladness, Where pleasures never die. Mother has obeyed her Saviour's call, He who suffered for us all. The angels took her by the hand And led her to that better land. Mother now has left us lonely. For no longer could she wait; But when we shall enter heaven She will open wide the gate. Our dearest mother now has left us And her loss we deeply feel; But it is God who has bereft us; He can all our sorrows heal. Gladwin County Record dated 03-04/1920 Column - 3 Page – 4

EDWARD J. MATTHEWS CROSSES GREAT DIVIDE

 

AFTER MANY YEARS OF FAITHFUL SERVICE VETERAN CONDUCTOR PASSES TO HIS REWARD

 

   Edward J. Matthews, on of the most widely known men in Gladwin county, died Saturday, Dec. 28, at 6 p.m. He had been in failing health for several years, but tenaciously fought off the inroads of disease. He retired from service as conductor on the Michigan Central railroad on Oct. 31, 1928 after 48 years and eight months of service, 41 years of it being on the Gladwin branch, he being the first conductor to bring, a train over the Gladwin branch. Until the advent of the automobile the M. C. branch was the only means of ingress and egress from Gladwin county. Mr. Matthews became acquainted with and is known by nearly all of the people of the county, and being of genial and kindly disposition, his friends were many. He was faithful and loyal to his company, and at all times a trusted employee.

   Edward J. Matthews was born Aug. 4, 1859 at Dexter, Washtenaw county, Michigan. Here he spent most of his youth, attending district school until 12 years old. At Pinconning he was married May 5, 1887, to Katherine Hooley, who died Sept. 20, 1889, leaving one daughter Edna who died March 5, 1923, at Detroit. He was married April 18, 1903, to Ella B. Haynes, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Haynes, of Gladwin, who has been a faithful helper and companion through all his suffering.

   Mr. Matthews had been in poor health for about 10 years, his illness starting with an attack of influenza, during which time he was able part of time to look after his duties as conductor on the Michigan Central, and at other times his condition was very serious for weeks. Mr. Matthews rallied from these attacks many times, and was able to be on duty again.

   While at the U. of M. hospital, Ann Arbor for treatment in 1924 Mr. Matthews joined the Episcopal church being baptized by Rev. Shaw and confirmed by Bishop Charles Williams. He was a member of the Gladwin F. & A. M. lodge, No. 397, and was the first candidate upon whom the degrees were conferred after the lodge was instituted. He was also a member of the Order of the Eastern Star.

   He is survived by his wife and grandson, Edward Matthews. Services were held Wednesday afternoon Jan. 1, at 1:30 at the residence conducted by Rev. David S. Agnew of West Branch and assisted by Rev. Leroy M. Whitney. Burial at Highland cemetery. The following sketch is from our issue of Feb. 7, 1929. Mr. Matthews started his railroad (Continued on last page) career working on a log road for Scott Gerrish in Clare county, Mich. The camps were at Lake George. The logs were put into the Muskegon river and floated to Muskegon. The banking ground was near the place where the village of Temple was built when the Ann Arbor railroad was completed through that section several years later.

   Automatice couplers and air brakes were not in use during the logging days, and nearly all trainmen sustained the loss of one or more fingers. Mr. Matthews was an exception, although he was in many perilous adventures, such as running into trees across the tracks, cars leaving the rails, etc.

   Mr. Matthews had many interesting experiences to relate of the day of the "link and pin," as railroad men term the period prior to the automatic couplers. Among them is bringing the first locomotive for the Scott-Gerrish railroad up the Muskegon river on a raft by poling. The current was swift and made the passage up stream very slow. In addition ice formed on the poles until it had to be removed with axes. The engine was kept fired up to give the men a chance to warm their hands and thaw the ice from their clothing. Many of the men gave up, but new ones took their places and they finally succeeded in placing the engine on the rails, and she was soon puffing away, with wood for fuel, hauling logs to the river.

   Mr. Gerrish started another railroad running from Saginaw bay, near Pinconning, out into the forest, to Mt. Forest. Freemans (now called Bentley) Moore's Junction and Ogden. Mr. Matthews finally obtained a position on this road and remained in the employ of the different companies running the road until the Michigan Central purchased the road and has been employed with that company since. Mr. Matthews has a record for courteous and efficient service, as many Gladwin people who have ridden with him for years can testify. Gladwin County Record dated 01-02/1930 Column - 2 Page - 1

"FULLY RIPE FOR THE HARVEST"

 

DEATH CLAIMS MORE OLD-TIME RESIDENTS, INCLUDING HUGH MC-CLARY, JOHN MURRAY AND FORMER JUDGE COBB.

 

Another name is stricken form the ever lessening roll of our old settlers, one who for many years had been active in the affairs of our city and county. The stern Reaper found Hugh McClary"as a shock fully ripe for the harvest." Death came to him peacefully Sunday last at his home in this city, after a few days' illness from a stroke of paralysis. Mr. McClary came to Gladwin in June 1881, from Mt. Pleasant, where he was engaged in the implement business for a time. Here he succeeded Conlogue & Cole, dealers in agricultural implements who built the store recently occupied by M. H. Wright, which burned the first of the year. Mr. McClary was in business in this store for some years, then built across the street and moved to the new quaters, retaining the old building for rent. In 1900 his building on the north side of Cedar avenue burned, and he built in it's place a commodions structure in which he was engaged in business alone until a few years ago, when he formed a co-partnership with L. Burt under the firm name of McClary & Burt to which Woodward & Burt recently became successors, doing business in the store last built and used by Mr. McClary.

   Of excellent habits and fine moral character Mr. McClary retained good health, with a few exceptions, and continued active in his accustomed pursuits to a ripe - age. He was a man who united sound sense with strong convictions, and a candid out-spoken temper. He had filled the various stations of life, and filled them well. As a lifelong membe of the Catholic church he was faithful and devoted to his faith. His best monument will be the good report that he has left behind him in the community he has lived many years.

   In politics he was an old time Democrat, and although in the minority party in Gladwin county he was elected to the office of probate judge in 1888 by a nice vote. He also served as one of the first - alderman of the city and in other minor positions but he was not a seeker after political honors. However he was always ready to devote his time to the public welfare, and was counted on to assist in all movements for the improvement and growth of the community.

   Mr. McClary was born in New Hampshire, April 24, 1847, and at the age of 17 moved to Rutland and Vermont, where he engaged in farming. From Vermont he came to Mt. Pleasant and a few years thereafter to Gladwin. He was united in marriage June 25, 1889, to Miss Barbara Shaffer, who died in 1895. To the union three children were born, of which two sons John and Milton, grown to young manhood, are living. In 1906 he married Mrs. Dutcher, who survives him.

   Funeral services were largely attended Wednesday at 9 a.m. at the Church of Sacred Heart. Rev. W. Miller officiating. The pallbearers were John Weir, Sylvester Raymond, F. E. Atchinson, Isaac Foster, J. D. Smith and Allen Armstrong. Interment in Highland cemetery.

   The business houses of the city were closed during the services, and a large procession of citizens followed the body to the grave. As a token of respect Mayor E. A. Coan made public the following:

 

IN MEMORIAM

 

   The city of Gladwin mourns the loss of Hugh McClary, one of its pioneer business men who departed this life May 4, 1913, at his home in this city. The forenoon of Wednesday, May 7 next, has been set apart for the performance of the burial rites of the departed.

   He was ever diligent in the promotion of the prosperity of his home town, active in its advancement and development, and in his daily life honorable and conscientious. It is therefore fitting that his friends and neighbors should pay respect to his memory.

   I do therefore request that all business cease and all business houses and public offices within the city be closed during forenoon of said day while the citizens of Gladwin bow with respect of the bier, of who so creditably carried the burdens of life.

M-18 ACCIDENT FATAL TO BOY

 

LESTER MCCLURE STRUCK BY CAR MONDAY NIGHT

 

   Lester W. McClure, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen McClure, of Gladwin, was almost instantly killed Monday at 6 p.m. when he was struck by a car while he was crossing M-18 near the Wodgenski farm, 2 1/2 miles north of Gladwin. Yound McClure, in company with William Lyons, 11, of Gladwin, had hitched-hiked a ride with Clarence Neilsen, of Sanford, to the Wodgenski farm where they planned to visit a friend, Robert Symons. According to witnesses, Mr. Neilsen stopped to let the boys out on the east side of M-8. A car, driven by Carl F. Hoard, 20 of Shephard, was approaching from the north. The McClure boy, coming out from behind the Neilsen machine, failed to see the approaching car and ran across the road directly in its path.

The inquest will be continued Wednesday to hear the testimony of Mr. Neilsen, who Sheriff Cowell was unable to locate Tuesday.

 

SOUNDED HORN

   Father Van Colen delivered an eloquent address in which he paid high tribute to the patriotism of the deceased. Photo Insert.

 

WILLIAM T. MCKENNA

 

   Showing the lofty ideals of William McKenna as a soldier, the following extracts from a letter to his mother written by him while on the firing line in France, and publishe in the Gladwin County Record in August, 1918, were read by Father Van Colen:

   "The U.S. is no longer behind the screen, but is now in the thickest of the fight and daily adding new glory to our glorious past. All America can well be proud of their boys whose privilege it was to be at Cntigny and thereabout: of course some fell, but their lives are not lost, merely invested in freedom's cause, and I know that all who did make the greatest sacrifice that man can, die so willingly, and America may feel sure that thousands of more over here will do so as willingly if it be necessary."

   Speaking of cruelties---"but, over here we are closer to it and can ourselves see what the noble French and their allies have suffered at least have seen enough to make our fighting blood run faster even than it did the day we volunteered. I do not see how nay young man who knows right from wrong can sit back while daily his fellow countrymen fight, yeaw, and even die for that liberty and freedom which all in America enjoy and which we as a nation will give to the entire world for all times.

   "A few days ago it was my privilege to attend a very impressive military funeral. In fact, it was the most impressive sight, I ever expect to witness. In a village graveyard, within the range of enemy's guns, two soldiers were laid to rest; one was a comrade and one an enemy (a Boche) who had a few hours before killed him adn in turn he himself was killed. A priest in uniform said the same words over both, the same firing squad fired the military salute for both. If we cannot respect a live enemy (boche) we can show our respect for a dead one even if we know that if we should fall within their lines no such respect would be given us. but you may be sure that we shall always be men at least.

   Representatives of American Legion posts at Gladwin and Beaverton occupied a prominent place in the assemblage, and participated in military services at the grave in charge of Lieutenant Budge of Beaverton, in addition to services conducted by Father Van Colen. The pallbearers were B. C. Wilmot, Orlen Wagar, J. C. Shaffer, Eldon Capling, John F. Englehardt comrades in the World war.

   William T. McKenna was born in Grout township in May, 1897, and at his death was in his 27th year. He was a graduate of the Gladwin high school, class of 1917, and was one of the first Gladwin boys to volunteer after the declaration of war with Germany in 1917, and was a member of Co. G. 128th Infantry, A. E. F., in which he saw service on the battlefield of Chateau Thiery, under command of Major Gansser, who visits to Gladwin has given him special praise. After returning from the war in May 1919 Mr. McKenna spent some time with his mother and the family in Gladwin, and organized Ralph Wright post of American Legion here, of which he was the first commander and at the time of his death honorary commander.

   His health failing him he went to New Mexico for relief in November, 1919, and at the time of his death was in the hospital at Fort Bayard. His father, John F. McKenna of Flint, sisters Miss Mary E. McKenna of Gladwin and Mrs. Roseanna ... Gladwin County Record dated 01-31/1924 Column - 2 Page - 1

Mr. Parker was a man whose positive and upright character and intelligence will leave a lasting impression on the community in which he lived.
