John H. Hemler
Dayton Daily Journal - March 5, 1889 - Page 1

A Testing Tank Exploded Killing John H. Hemler of North Dayton

About 1:30 yesterday afternoon a sad accident occurred at the pump works of Smith & Vaile, North Dayton, which resulted in the death of John H. Hemler, who lived at 17 Harker Street.

Hemler, assisted by Joseph Byrne and Jesse Collins, was engaged in testing pumps in the building used for that purpose, when the steel testing tank, about four feet in diameter and six feet high, and partly filled with water, exploded with a terrific report. The bottom of the tank was blown out and the tank toppled over and fell to the floor. When the explosion took place the men were close to the tank. Byrne made his escape through a window, and Collins rushed for the door, closely followed by Hemler, who exclaimed: “Collins, I’m hurt; catch me;” and fell into his arms. He was carried into the office, but died before medical aid could be rendered. The skull of the unfortunate young man was crushed, though just how will probably never be learned. Whether he was struck by a piece of iron, or whether it was caused by the force of the concussion, is not known.

The Coroner was notified and viewed the remains, after which they were taken to his home in the patrol wagon.

Hemler was about 28 years of age and unmarried, living with his parents. He had been in the employ of Smith & Vaile for about three years and was a universal favorite, being a sober industrious young man. The firm deplore the accident, but it was one that no precaution could have prevented. The tank was made by Brownell & Co. last summer, and was considered unusually strong.

He was born in Cincinnati, November 1842, the son of Rev. and Mrs. William Herr. AT an early age he came to Dayton with his parents and the family made its residence at First and Main streets, on the site now occupied by the Dayton City club. Later they moved into the old Herr homestead on Ludlow street.

In 1869, Mr. Herr and Miss Louise T. Hite were married at the home of her parents, near Louisville, Ky. The couple resided there until 16 years ago, when they came to Dayton. During the Civil war Mr. Herr served with both the army and navy. For the last 16 years he had been associated with the McCabe, Shepard & Coe company. He was a member of the Episcopal church.

Sarah Ruth Herr
Dayton Daily News – September 9, 1903


Miss Sarah Ruth Herr died on Tuesday evening, September 8th at her home on Ludlow street, where she had lived for 25 years. She had been in failing health since last spring, but her strong constitution and bright, uncomplaining, cheerful disposition bore her up until a month ago when it became apparent to her family and friends and to herself that she would not be long on this side of the river of life. The end came as she would have wished. Swiftly came the Angel of death and gently closed her eyes in the last sleep. She needed no preparation for the great change, all of her life had been a preparation. She became a member of the Methodist church when she was 12 years old, and through all the years of her life had been not only a good Christian, but a force for good in her church and in the community. She was born at West Marietta, O., on the 19th of September, 1832. She was the daughter of the late Rev. William Herr of the Cincinnati conference of the Methodist church and was an earnest helper and companion to her father. Interested in Sunday school and church work. Miss Herr was very fond of Dayton, where she had passed almost all of her life, coming here in 1844 and having lived here continuously ever since. She enjoyed travel, having spent some time in California with her brother, but she never found any place she liked so well as Dayton, and enjoyed its beauties, watching its growth and development and noting every added improvement. She was more than usually interested in the questions of the day, and read the newspapers with great pleasure, and loved to talk with friends on affairs of moment. Miss Herr was a descendant of Gen. Nathaniel Greene and was a Daughter of the Revolution. She was also a member of the Emerson club, being fond of books and literary work. Sarah was the first of the family to go. Her oldest brother, Mr. James Herr, lives in San Francisco. Mrs. David Engle is her only sister. Mr. Whitney Herr of Louisville is her brother.

"Let me die the death of the righteous and let my last end be like his."

Death came to her as life had been, full of trust in the love that never falleth. Only transition into the broader world beyond the sighing and the weeping, into the fullness of God's perfect day.

William Herr
Dayton Evening News – March 29, 1897

After Many Years' Service As a Minister of the Gospel, Rev. Wm. Herr is Called to a Higher Home

Rev. William Herr, D.D., probably the oldest minister of the Methodist Episcopal church in Ohio, died at 10:45 o'clock Sunday morning at his residence on North Ludlow street, this city, after a long and useful career as a minister of the gospel.

He was born on the 9th of March, 1806, at Hagerstown, Md., and came to Ohio with his parents in 1818, locating at Lancaster. He was converted, or, as he always expressed it, "was born again" while attending the Athens University at Athens, O., and thereafter became a minister of the gospel. He first preached at Marietta, O., and later occupied the pulpit of various churches in West Virginia as pastor.

In the early '30's he went to Michigan, where he preached for several years in several localities. It was in 1840 that he became a member of the Ohio conference and located at Columbus. He was transferred to the Cincinnati conference in 1847 and became pastor of the Fourth-street chapel. At the termination of his pastorate there he came to Dayton for two years and again being returned to that city. He later went to Xenia, Springfield, Urbana, Lancaster and other Ohio cities.

He became general agent of the American Bible society in 1860, a position he held until 1875, a period of fifteen years. It was during this period and at the time of the war that he enlisted as chaplain of the famous 93d Ohio. However, he was not accepted on account of his age. His semi-centenary sermon was delivered at Urbana, O., 1878.

In 1876 he settled in Dayton and since resided in the residence where he died on North Ludlow street. It was at that time that he ceased his active work as a minister, though he was for sometime chaplain of the Widows' Home. He has been a supernumerary minister of the M.E. church for the last sixteen years.

Rev. Dr. Herr was married in 1830 to Miss Sarah Whitney of Marietta. She died in July, 1843, leaving two sons and two daughters, all of whom survive him. They are Sarah R. Herr, living at home; John J. Herr of San Francisco, Mrs. D. W. Engle of this city and Mr. B. Whitney Herr of Louisville, Ky. He married a second wife, Eliza P. Swain, daughter of Judge Swain, in this city in 1845. She survives him also. They had no children by this marriage.

The deceased was the last of a family of twelve children. The youngest child, he outlived all the children, who with two exceptions lived to a ripe old age. Death was due to old age. He had been gradually sinking for the last sixteen months.

The funeral, which will be private, will take place from the late residence on North Ludlow street on Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock.

Dayton Journal – December 4, 1878

Railroad men were startled yesterday by the unexpected announcement of the death of Conductor Thomas S. Houston, one of the oldest conductors on the C.H.& D., and probably the oldest railway man on that road. He was stricken with apoplexy Monday night at Toledo, and survived but a short time.

He has been on the C.H.& D. since 1864, and before that was connected for a number of years with the Ohio & Mississippi, and previous to that was employed on the Erie Road. He was a sociable, cheerful and engaging man, and his friends are numerous. His home was in Lockland, Ohio, where his remains will be taken. Mr. Houston was a Mason of good standing, and a member of the Scottish Rite.

The Last Sad Rites Over the Remains of the Late William P. Huffman

The funeral of the late William P. Huffman took place yesterday afternoon at 3 o'clock from the old homestead, on Huffman Hill. The immediate relatives and extensive family connection, together with the many friends of the dead banker, assembled to pay their respects to the departed, made an assemblage that was too large to be accommodated at the residence, and many were obliged to listen to the service from the shaded lawn.

The casket, of rich black cloth and silver trimmings, rested on a bank of floral offerings in the parlor. At the head stood large floral pieces of rare flowers, while other available portions of the room were filled with similar tributes of esteem and respect for him whose earthly remains were soon to be consigned to the grave.

Rev. Lonnabury officiated. The service was short and impressive, while the address and words of sympathy to the bereaved family were touching and welcome.

At the close of the service a last look was taken of the well known features, then cold in death, and the casket was closed. The pall bearers, Messrs. O. M. Gottschall, J. K. McIntire, J. R. Reynolds, Geo. W. Honk, Chas. A. Phillips, Samuel McKee, P. E. Gilbert and T. S. Babbitt bore the casket to the hearse and the funeral cortage wended its way slowly through the city to Woodland cemetery.

The crowd at Woodland cemetery was even greater than at the family residence. The scene as the casket was lowered into the grave was one long to be remembered.
