AQED PIONEERS PASS ON
TO THAT ETERNAL HOME
LYDIA A. DERRING
PASSES AWAY AT 90 YEARS
Pioneer of Wood County Come
Here When Country
Called Block Swamp.
On June 6 passed away one who
was long connected with Perrys
burg, Mrs. Lydia A. Deering. She
was better known to the older
generation as Mrs. Charles
Powers. With her family she
came hero in 1869; her husband
died in 1871; and Mrs. Powers
later was married to Rev. J. K.
Deering. Since 1899 she has made
hc home in Genoa near her Son
Afiiprno. Adorno died in 1913,
Frecland in 1918. She is survived
by her daughter Mrs. Helen A.
Jaeger, and four sons, all of whom
were present at the funerq); also
by seventeen grandchildren and
She was born August 24, 1829,
and came with her parents to
Woodville in 1835. During her
long life, nearly all of which was
passed within a radius of a few
miles, she was spectator and
sharer in the marvelous develop
ment of this country. When she
came here it was properly called
the Black Swamp, and the chief
highway of communication the
Pike admitted of travel at the
rate at only a few miles a day. A
littl, advance was marked by the
digging of canals. In 1847 Mrs.
Deering made a memorable trip by
canal to Cincinnati and by steamer
to Pittsburg. To tell what other
rich experiences were hers would
require a review of the history of
the last 75 years.
In moral and religious matters
can be exemplified by telling of
her active share in the temperance
movement of the seventies. This
was popularly known as "the cru
sade" and was the forerunner of
thevW. C. T. U. She with other
women held prayer meetings on
the streets and even within the
dofa-s of saloons and arranged for
the establishment of reading room
and library as a substitute attrac
tion instead of the saloon.
Though her life was mostly
passed within a -narrow radius,
still she had a good many oppor
tunities to see the country and she
was always eagor even in her ex
treme old age to have a new ex
perience. In her childhood and
young womanhood she made many
trips to New York ; she spent sev-

DEATH OF JOHN O'LEARY.
The death of Mr. John O 'Leary
at his late residence in Perrys
burg, Tuesday morning, Juno
10th, marked the closing chapter
of a typical pioneer life.
Mr. O 'Leary was born seventy
years ago on a farm one mile
north of Stony Ridge in Wood
county and made his homo there
until a few months ago when the
family retired from farm labor
and, moved to Perrysburg, having
purchased a beautiful home on
East Second street.
Mr. O 'Leary ;s parents settled
on the old homestead in 1840. Here
they cleared a spot on which to
erect their humble home. Possess
ing strong physical constitutions
they successfully withstood and
endured all the rigorous hard
ships incident to pioneer life.
Under their sturdy efforts the
dense forests gave way, fertile
fields were developed and com
fortable buildings erected.
Here they reared a family of
six children, three boys and three
girls, and imparted to them, by
precept and example, Christian
ideals and noble traits of char
acter and especially that of com
munity spirit help one another
that beautiful custom, so helpful
and necessary in pioneer life.
Under these influences "John
O 'Leary grew to manhood. In his
early life he. traveled much in the
south and southwest and was
deeply interested in the growth
and development of that section of
Besides his farm labor he found
ample time to pursue his favorite
recreation of reading and study.
He was a fine conversationalist and
his friends enjoyed his company.
no was noted for his open hospital
ity that made everyone welcome
at his home and table.
He possessed in' a marked de
gree those simple, unassuming
traits of character and honesty
that attracted and made every ac
quaintance a friend.
This was evident by the great
numbers of former neighbors that
attended his funeral here Friday
morning, June 13th, at St. Rose's
church, nis remains were interred
in St. Rose 's cemetery.
His many friends had hoped that
he would be spared for some time
to enjoy the well earned fruits of
an active life.
Mr. O 'Leary leaves three sis
ters, the Misses Mary, Johanna and
Ellen O 'Leary and a toster
brother, Thomas O 'Leary.
