Title: Re:Obituary Archives -- Rebecca Gilliland of PA
Post by: admin on July 6, 2009, 11:06:07 AM

I have a number of funeral notices for Rebecca Gilliland, wife of Captain Joseph Henderson Gilliland of PA, but what I'm still missing is her actual obituary. In the New Castle (PA) News of Sept. 29, 1916 she was reported as gravely ill and on Oct. 3 it was reported that she was buried in Oak Park Cemetery.

I have several tributes and obits for her husband, Capt. Gilliland, who died in 1904, but would like to do transcriptions for both of them and post the obits together. If anyone has a copy could you please pass it along? Thanks!

I need some help here translating an obituary for Mrs. Margaret Gilliland, which appeared in the Daily Record of Delphos, Ohio in January of 1898. As you will see, the second paragraph of her obituary seems to have been muddled and rather than venture a guess, I'm hoping someone here can tell us how this obituary was supposed to read.

Title: Re:Obituary Archives
Post by: admin on March 14, 2010, 02:50:57 PM

Here's another batch of obituaries I just transcribed. Again, I am posting these here until I have some time to organize them for our library archives. At the moment I'm focusing on finding and transcribing obits & articles and will worry myself about organizing them in future. Over the past week I've scanned through over 4,000 newpaper articles and have barely scratched the surface of what's available. Most of the obituaries in this particular grouping are from the Van Wert, Ohio area.

I did notice on rather glaring discrepancy among thse obituaries. In the obituary for Homer Gilliland, Mrs. Hugh Wallace is stated as living in Evansville, Ill; in the obituary for Mrs. J. W. Fugate, Mrs. Wallace is stated as living in Eversville, Ind. I am assuming that Evansville, Illinois was the correct residence but any verification of this would be appreciated.

Ironwood Daily Globe (Ironwood, Michigan) October 19, 1959
Defender of Farmers Dies
DETROIT (AP) -- Clayton C. Gilliand, who went to prison for his over-zealous stand against the famed Lapeer County farm evictions, is dead.
Gilliland, 65, suffered a stroke at his Highland Park home Saturday. He died in Highland Park General Hospital of a cerebral hemorrhage.
Gilliland came ino prominence as defense counsel for Chris and Paul Ziegenhardt, the farmer brothers who turned their property into a fort to resist eviction, and for the widowed Mrs. Elizabeth Stevens who evicting officers carried her from her home.
Gilliland was sentenced to prison in 1953 to 4 1/2 to 5 years for conspiracy to obstruct justice in the case of the late Mrs. Stevens. He was released from prison last May.
Both the Ziegengardts and Mrs. Stevens lost their causes and were evicted.
The background to the bitter story was the financial trouble of an insurance agency in which farmers of Lapeer County had invested.

From The Clearfield Progress (Clearfield, Pennsylvania)
February 26, 1919
WILLIAM SMITH GILLILAND
Doctor Willilam Smith Gilliland, one of Karthaus’ best and most representative citizens, passed to his reward at ten o’clock Tuesday night, February 18, 1919.
Dr. Gilliland was the son of John and Lydia Gilliland. He was born December 9, 1842 near Potter’s Mills, Centre county, and was in the 77th year of his age. He was about fifteen years old when the family came to Karthaus township. He attended the local schools and received his professional training in the Jefferson Medical College.
He commenced his practice at Salt Lick. He went from there to Keewaydin, where he practiced for fifteen years, removing from there to LeContes Mills, where they remained ten years. They then moved to Karthaus, where he spent the rest of his life.
He was united in marriage with Martha A. Murray, daughter of Alexander Murray, May 24, 1870.They went to housekeeping in Keewaydin.
Dr. Gilliland was a staunch Democrat in politics, but was never an aspirant for political honors. He accepted the office of Township Auditor when elected and served acceptably. He was a citizen of whom any community might be proud and had the welfare of the community at heart.
Dr. Gilliland was in active practice for forty-five years. He was a skilled physician and had a heart big enough to take in the needs of all his patients. He traveled those hills, ministering to the sick and dying. Like the Great Physician, he went about doing good. By his life of devotion to duty, he endeared himself to the hearts of the people for miles around.
Dr. Gilliland was raised a Presbyterian and remained in the Presbyterian faith all his life. But in his death, the Karthaus Methodist church had lost one of its best friends. He was trustee for many years and occupied that position up till the time of his death. He took an active interest in everything that concerned the church. He was faithful to the Church Militant and is now enjoying the privilege of membership in the Church Triumphant.
Dr. Gilliland was a great sufferer during the last five years of his life. But he bore his sufferings like a brave soldier of the cross. He was one of the most beautiful Christian characters I ever met. His faith was wonderful and he could see the sunlight of God’s love shining through every cloud.
Dr. and Mrs. Gilliland had almost fifty years of beautiful married life and [two words missing here] year they would have celebrated their golden wedding. I have never seen a more devoted couple. They lived for each other in the true sense of the word. His loving wife was never far from his side at any time.
Their home life was ideal. It was a Christian home, in the highest sense of the word. Dr. and Mrs. Gilliland lived for their children. They were interested in everything that they did and raised a family of useful men and women who will always be an honor and a testimony to good home training.
The Gilliland home was a hospitable home. You were always sure of a warm welcome there. Dr. Gilliland was a Christian gentleman in every sense of the word. He was kind and courteous in his manner and had the faculty of making everybody feel at home with him.
He had a keen intellect and was wide awake on all the questions of the day and his business judgment was of the best.
Sorrow has often visited this home. Dr. and Mrs. Gilliland lost seven children during the course of their life. But they saw in it all the hand of the Lord and knew that everything works together for good to them that love the Lord.
Dr. Gilliland is survived by his wife and the following children: Mrs. George Spears, Pottsdown, Pa.; Harry B. Gilliland, Karthaus; Mrs. James Hiffle, Morristown, New Jersey; Mrs. Nelson McNaughton, Harrisburg; Mrs. William Ross, Jr., Karthaus; Paul W. Gilliland, Williamsport. He is also survived by fourteen grandchildren. Two sisters and a brother also survive, Hannah Catherine Gilliland and Mary A. Gilliland, Karthaus, and Robert C. Gilliland, Snow Shoe.
The funeral was held from his late residence in Karthaus, Saturday afternoon at two o’clock, February 22, 1919, Rev. John P. McCurdy officiating. Appropriate addresses were delivered by Dr. E. C. Reeve, Rev. W. B. Cook, Port Matilda, and Rev. John P. McCurdy. Interment in Keewaydin cemetery.
