RE MARRIED AFTER AN ABSENCE OF TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. - The Conneaut (Ohio) Reporter mentions the marriage at that place, on the 11th of February, of Mr. Elias Jones and Mrs. Delia Swap, and gives the following interesting sketch of the parties:
     "There is a little history connected with the above which may not be uninteresting to the reader.  About the close of hte last war with Great Britain the parties became acquainted with each other, and in April, 1822, were married, in the county of Genesee, N. Y., against the consent and wishes of relatives on both sides.  A few weeks prior to the birth of their second son, Bradford, now of this place, Mr. Jones left his family for the purpose of purchasing a piece of land, and during his absence his wife was persuaded by her relatives to desert her home and husband and reside with them. Mr. Jones, on learning the fact, and being threatened with violence if he attempted to claim his family, left the country and went to sea.  On his return, several sears subsequent, he ascertained that Mrs. Jones had again married, and removed to the west.
     "In palliation of this transaction, it should be stated that the wife supposed her former husband dead, and did receive tidings of his supposed loss at sea.  Mr. Jones did immediately return to his vocation on the sea, and from that period until a few weeks since, lost all trace of his wife, and his two sons, and wended his steps to this place, where, to his gratification, he learned that their mother was still living, and a widow, having lost her second husband after rearing ten children, and then residing in Mercer, Pa.  In company with his son, Mr. Jones started for the residence of the partner of his youth, who at once recognised and welcomed him to her home; though she could not have been more surprised had he risen from the grave to confront her.  The trials of the past were recounted, the love of youth renewed, and after a brief courtship, they were again plighted, and the finale is recorded at the head of this article.

Samuel Buck
died at Conneaut, Ohio, last week, aged 84.  Over sixty years ago he was jilted by the girl he loved, and retired to a house built for himself and furnished in good style, where he dwelt alone until he died.  Out of the doors he wore garb of man and permitted himself to be addressed as Mr. Buck.  In the house he always wore his long hair parted in the middle, and put on female attire, and in this guise would only appear as Miss Buck.  Many fine dresses he had worn were found in the hermit's house after he died.

The Funny Man at Conneaut.
, an eccentric character well known in the vicinity of Conneaut, died recently near that village at an advanced age.
He is represented to have been a man of good family and with a fair education and natural abilities, but possessed of a strange passion to ape the manners of the opposite sex.  For many yeas he had lived alone, and with surprising facility he performed all the duties of a housewife and farmer at once.  In the morning he would don woman's attire, which became his delicate person well, prepare breakfast, eat, and having put the house in order, would unpin his chignon, exchange his hoop skirts for trowsers, and go out to plough or chop wood, as the case might be, till noon, when he would appear again in the role of a lady cook.  He was even fastidious in his tastes, and when attired as a fashionable young woman, with his long kept hair done up a la mode, he would receive and entertain company so gracefully and naturally as to deceive all except those who knew him, and always seemed quite unconcious that he was playing a borrowed part.  He was in no sense of the word a lunatic or a hermaphrodite, and what occasioned this strange perversion of the natural instincts can only be a matter of conjecture.  Fonts of wood type are said to be in use that he manufactured.   Surveying instruments, sun dials, etc., without number, were found in his "curiosity shop," the result of long study and labor.  His will was made not long since, bestowing all his earthly possessions - consisting of seventeen hundred dollars in bonds, and as much more in real estate - to a nephew bearing his name, now a resident of Michigan.

Mr. Sheley Smith.
     Our highly esteemed neighbor and fellow citizen departed this life Monday morning at 2 o'clock, April 16, after a severe sickness of several weeks, aged sixty-nine years, ten months and eighteen days.  He was born in Winstead, Litchfield county, Connecticut, and was married to Miss Rhuhannah R. Loomis May 23, 1841, and moved to Chardon, Geauga county, Ohio in the same year, since which time he has resided in Geauga and Ashtabula Counties.  It was during his residence of nine years in Lenox, under the labors of Rev. Rufus Clark, he consecrated his life to the service of God, since which time he has remained a firm believer in the religion of Christ, and a faithful servant of the church.  His bearing was gentlemanly and his mind clear and logical, and he has left a name behind him unsulled, which is a most precious legacy to his brother, son and daughter, their families and to the sorely sticken companion.
     His life was so upright, his christian faith so undoubted, and his expressions of hope and trust so triumphant even to the very last, that we all feel the blessed assurance that he has gone to the Home prepared for those who love and faithfully serve the Lord Jesus.
     Funeral services were held at his late residence at South Ridge, where for the past eighteen years his presence has made a pleasant and happy home.  Remarks were made by Rev. D. L. Rice, founded on 1 Cor. 4-16, as the basis of christian hopes and rewards hereafter.  A large circle of sympathizing friends and citizens attended the services and accompanied the remains to the burial at Conneaut.
     May the Lord temper these affections, and give strength to the bereaved to wait in patience until He shall call them to meet the loved one who has gone before.                                                       D. L. R.

ROGERS - In Kelloggsvill, O., April 28th, of apoplexy, Platt W. Rogers, formerly of Ripley, N. Y., but more recently of Beaver Center, Pa, aged about 65 years.


Monday between one and two o'clock, the post-office was the scene of a most sudden death.  Our aged townsman, J. A. Ellis entered the office to transact some business and standing beside a table, without a sign or indication of illness, he fell over backward, expiring immediately -- disease of the heart being undoubtedly the cause.  Mr. Ellis was known throughout the country as an industrious mechanic, being for years, the proprietor of the furnace and machine shops at the Center.  For years this establishment was one well and favorable known for the production of plows, stoves, etc.  With the advancing years and the decline of health, Mr. Ellis gradually relinquished the business, and for some years no work has been done in his shops.  His death, although seventy-eight years old, was most unexpected, and has cast a gloom of sorrow over the entire community.  The funeral takes place today at 1:30 p.m.

Tuesday morning still  another of the pioneers of Conneaut, went to "that bourne from whence no traveler ever returns."  T. B. Howard aged eighty years, if not a native of the town and one of its very earliest settlers, residing here until about 1850, when he removed to the West, returning some ten years ago to spend his declining years among the scenes of his early manhood.  Mr. Howard was a man of strong character, and yet a general favorite with those who know him most intimately.  He had been ill for a number o weeks yet his death was not considered as imminent.  The funeral will be held at his late home, Thursday forenoon at 11 o'clock.

Monday morning death removed from our midst, another of the pioneers of this county, who "made the wilderness blossom as the rose."  At an early hour, quietly and peacefully sank to rest, Eber Sanford, aged eighty-six years, Mr. Sanford was one of the early settlers, and for years one of the leading farmers of the township, taking great and especial delight in raising the best of live stock.  As a citizen he was honest and upright, and as a husband and father, kind and indulgent.

CAPRON, E. E. - July 8, 1907 - Clarion lost one of its most worthy, capable and efficient business men by the death of Mr. E. E. Capron, which occurred last Sunday morning, July 14, 1907.  Mr. Capron's health began to fail last fall or winter after a very severe attack of lagrippe, and it seemed that it developed other complications which made steady inroads upon his vitality finally disqualifying him for business about the first of last January.  Notwithstanding everything possible was done, and he made the most earnest efforts to recover; he gradually grew worse.  The stroke of death could not be stayed, but it fell peacefully and Mr. Capron laid down to sleep until the dawn of the morning of the resurrection.  E. E. Capron was the son of Ephriam and Orpha Capron and was born at Conneaut, Ohio, October 12, 1854.  When a young man he got his start in business by helping uncle in his store at Amboy, O., and laid the foundation for a successful career.  He afterwards accepted a position as gauger for the Standard Oil Co., to which he gave intelligent and faithful service.  Mr. Capron came to Clarion in 1876 and started in the merchandising business, beginning at the corner of Fifth avenue and South Street, and moving to the present location of his store as business expanded and enlarged.  He was a safe and conservative business man, careful, just and honorable in all of his dealings with a prime motive at all times to do what was right under all circumstances.  By this course and by untiring industry he built up a successful business and an honorable reputation.
Mr. Capron and Miss Lottie E. Irvin in Reidsburg were united in marriage Oct. 8, 1874.  This happy union was blessed with two children, Charles B.  and Orpha E. Capron, both of whom are at home, and with their mother mourn the loss of a dear husband and father.  The deceased is also survived by the following brothers and sisters:  Chas. B., Austin, Texas; A. J. Capron, Portland, Ore.; D. S. Capron, Kansas City, Mo.; A. M. Capron, Bridgeport, Neb.; Mrs. Mary M. Johnson, Conneaut, O.; and M. F. Capron, Elyria, O.  To these relatives go out the tender sympathy of the entire community.  The deceased when a young man, united with the Christian church at Conneaut, O.  When he came to Clarion, there being no church of his faith he transferred his membership to the Baptist church and proved to be an earnest and faithful Christian man who tried always to be governed by the true christian principles.  Before he was prostrated on his sick bed he always insisted that as long as he possibly could do so he must go to church and long after he was able to go alone his wife and son or daughter helped him.  His devotion and trust brought him the peace and confidence that supported him at the last.   Mr. Capron was a charter member of the Knights of the Maccabees, Clarion Tent.  The funeral was held from his late home Wednesday, the stores of town closing from 10 to 12 o'clock to permit all to attend.  Beautiful floral offerings were sent by the Maccabees and many other friends.  Rev. Wm. F. Fleming conducted the service, assisted by Rev. Dr. S. H. Day  and Rev. J. G. Langham.  The interment was made in the Clarion cemetery.  Mrs. Capron and family desire to tender their most sincere thanks to the merchants of Clarion, to the Maccabees and to the many friends for their kindly sympathy and helpfulness through the sickness and at the death of husband and father.
