Obituary from Logan County, Ohio newspaper, dated January 30, 1958:
Mrs. Fred Wyburn Succumbs Monday

Mrs. Fred Wyburn, a highly respected resident of Northwood for many years, passed away unexpectedly at 8:15 p.m. Monday in the Ammons Rest Home here. She had been a patient in the rest home for several years after suffering a stroke and being unable to remain in her own home.

Preceding her in death were two brothers, Charles Little of Lima and Lauriston Little of St. Andrews, Fla.
Final rites were conducted this afternoon at two o'clock in the Read Funeral Home with the Rev. Henry M. Lynd, pastor of the local Methodist Church, officiating. Interment was made in the Belle Center-Fairview Cemetery.

|26||"'Elder' John Alderson, Jr. settled in Greenbrier County, Virginia (now Monroe County, West Virginia) in 1777 and later organized the first permanent Baptist Church in [what is now] West Virginia on Nov. 24, 1781. He drove the first wagon across the Alleghenies. At that time the settlers were frequently harassed by the inroads of the Indians, and Mr. Alderson was the first preacher to go from fort to fort with rifle in one hand and Bible in the other."|
"In 1777 Rev. John Alderson had taken up 1750 acres of land on the south side of the Greenbrier River. At the same time his brother-in-law, William Morris, took up a tract of the same number of acres on the north side of the same river. John Alderson's home was near the present Alderson Hotel. He had made two missionary trips to the Greenbrier Valley before he located there. The church organized in 1781 was the first of any denomination in what is now southern West Virginia. It was a member of the Ketockton Baptist Association. In 1911 it had 506 members. [pg. 153, "Virginia Valley records: genealogical and historical materials of Rockingham" ... By John W. Wayland]

|29||"... Richard Minshall, was born in Logan County, Ohio, January, 1813. He had the misfortune to lose |
both of his parents when he was only four years
of age, and he was reared in the home of Peter
Kelly. Shortly after reaching his majority he
married Rebecca Smith, the date of the event
being March 4, 1834. Six children were born to
them, and all are still living. For five years after
his marriage Mr. Minshall helped conduct his fa-
ther-in-law's farm, but in the fall of 1839 he
started for Missouri, making the trip overland in
a wagon. At the end of a seven-weeks journey
he arrived in Grundy County, bought land and
started to develop a farm. Soon afterwards he
took up the study of theology, and for a few
years was a local preacher. In the year 1847 he
joined the Southern Methodist Conference, and
later was regularly ordained, from that time on-
ward devoting himself to the ministry. When
the war broke out he enlisted in the Missouri
State Guards, his regiment being commanded by
John Turner Hughes. In 1861 he was mustered
into the regular Confederate service, having the
same colonel and general. In the fall of 1862 he
was transferred to General Shelby's division, and
was appointed Chaplain of Colonel Gordon's
regiment, serving in that capacity until the close
of the war. Returning home, he joined his fam-
ily in this county, where they had moved in his
absence, and, becoming a member of the South-
western Missouri Conference, devoted himself
zealously to his work. From 1878 until his
death, which occurred July 13, 1889, he dwelt in
Vernon County, where he was beloved and hon-
ored by all. His parents were natives of Vir-
ginia, and were early settlers first in Kentucky,
and later in Logan County, Ohio. Grandfather
Minshall was a man of superior education, and fol-
lowed teaching as well as farming. Both he and
his wife died while still young and within a short
time of each other. The parents of Mrs. Rebecca
Minshall were John and Rebecca (Carrick) Smith,
pioneers of the Buckeye State, whither they
moved from their native Virginia in 1813.

Several of the older boys went on to Normal School at Ohio Northern University, and then taught school. One of the boys, Albert, went to medical school after an apprenticeship with a local doctor. The other boys all did well, mostly farming, and they were all good workers.'"||SCHIFFERLY, Mary Ann (I3886)

His youth was spent at his father's home, where the opening of the Southern rebellion found him a stripling of nineteen years. Fired by the spirit of patriotism, which moved so many brave men to do or does for their country's defense, he resolved early upon entering the Union army -- meeting with opposition from his friends on account of his youth, he left his father's house and made his way across the Ohio river late Virginia, where he enlisted in the First Regiment of the Virginia Union Cavalry, in August, 1861. That regiment was largely composed of men who had been driven from their houses by the forces of rebellion, and whose earthly all was at stake in the overthrow of treason. Every man had a personal interest in the fight, and all of them were heroes. Bravest among the brave was John N. Elliott; indeed his courage frequently assumed the form of deparation. He seemed to know no fear, and to have a contempt for danger and death. It is said of him that he would not, unless compelled, turn his back even-----

She was healed in 1888 in Cleveland, taking the Lord for her healer, and at that time consecrating herself fully to God.

In the spring of 1891 the family moved to New York and spent a year doing missionary work, then they spent two years doing missionary work in Cleveland, then they returned to Bluffton and resumed the Lord's work at Bethany Home, under the Christian Alliance Association. Then they sold their home in Bluffton, and moved to Fort Wayne, Indiana, and started Home and Bible School, which over the years, became Fort Wayne Bible College."|

~ Pelatiah was the eldest child of Pelatiah and Joanna Crowfoot (Smith) Webster, and was educated at Yale, graduating there in 1746. He became a minister in Greenwich, MA where he met and married Miss Ruth Kellogg in 1750. By 1755 he had removed to Philadelphia where he became a successful merchant and businessman, amassing a small fortune. He became one of the foremost authorities on all matters of trade, finance, currency and resources of the country and whose council was sought and respected by many in the Continental Congress.
~ In 1776 he began publishing a series of pamphlets which were all compiled into his 1791 "Political Essays on the Nature and Operation of Money, Public Finances, and other Subjects during the American War", some of which were the cause of his arrest and imprisonment by the British in 1778. The year before he had written a letter to Gen. George Washington, reporting on the generally poor conditions under which American Prisoners were being held in Philadelphia. He was held for over 4 months and had an estimated 500 pounds worth of his goods confiscated.
~ In 1783 he published his "Dissertation on the Political Union and Constitution of the United States of North America", which in effect was the first call for the replacement of the "Articles of Confederation" with a whole new form of a "Federal Government", which eventually came to fruit with the ratification of the U.S. Constitution in 1788. He was also urged by some to run for President against Washington in the first election for that office. Mr Webster died in Philadelphia in 1795 and is believed to be at rest in the Mt. Vernon Cemetery there.
"The Continental money is to be considered as a debt fastened on the person and estate of every member of the United States, a debt of great honor and justice, of national honor and justice, not barely empty honor, but that essential honor and credit in which the safety of the state is comprised, and therefore by confession of every body must be punctually and honorably paid in due time; otherwise all security arising from public credit must be lost, all confidence of individuals in our public councils must be destroyed, and great injustice must be done to every possessor of our public currency, to the detriment of all, and ruin of many who have placed most confidence in our public administration: and nothing but shame, scandal, and contempt can ensue, for which nothing but most inevitable necessity can be any reasonable excuse."
-Pelatiah Webster, Oct 1776
~ Long after his death, on May 4, 1908: By Act of Document 461 of the U.S. Senate, in the 1st Session of the 60th Congress, Pelatiah Webster was officially recognized as the "Architect of our Federal Constitution". (JVP)
