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.

Blanche Lenora Wyburn was born in this county on September 11, 1883, the daughter of Thomas Judson and Mary Stearns-Little.

Mrs. Wyburn had been in failing health for several years, having suffered several strokes of paralysis. Death, most certainly, must be a blessing to one so afflicted.

Also remaining are two sons and three daughters by the second marriage. They are: Joe and Omar Wyburn of Northwood; Mrs. Robert (Lenni) Kellogg of Bellefontaine, Mrs. George (Thelma) Schreiber of Springfield, and Mrs. Paul (Doris) Snider ofXenia ,

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.

Serving as pallbearers were Robert Kellogg, George Schrieber, Herman Chiles, Kentzil May, Don Lewis and Paul Snider, Jr.

"There was a long-time Quaker family attending the Henrico [Quaker] Meeting by the name of Butler who had moved across the James River to what is now Dinwiddie and Surry Counties. The lands south of the Blackwater River were open for settlement in 1710. John Butler bought lands in Bristol Paris, St. George County, Virginia in 1718. The Butler family had a Quaker meeting known as "The Widow Butler's Meeting" in what is now Dinwiddie County. It was probably named after the mother or mother-in-law of John Butler. John Watkins, the eldest son of Henry Jr., must have known of them as in 1720, when he came of age, he married Sarah Butler at the Curles Quaker Meeting House.

Sarah ... was a daughter of John and Mary (Wallas) Butler of Surry and Dinwiddie Counties. John and Sarah's wedding was recorded in the Curles Meeting House Records. They [John and Sarah] probably lived at and worked the Malvern Hills plantation. They continued to be members of the Curles Meeting for many years. John and Sarah had at least ten children. Many were born at Malvern Hills, but younger children were probably born in Dinwiddie or Surry County.

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]

31 "... 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.

The Henrico County Court ordered her imprisonment. In June she was again brought to the bar and 'still persisting in ye same obstinancy as she pretends out of conscience sale and therefore desiring to be excused and her father also humbly seconding her request the court have out of their clemency in consideration of her young years remitted her offence and releast [sic] her of her confinement.'

41 "1810, 6 mo [White] Ann (now Watkins) disowned for marrying contrary to discipline."

This suggests that either Ann married another Quaker without first getting the permission of the Quaker monthly meeting or that she married outside the Quaker faith. Unfortunately it does not tell us whom Ann married.

45 "ELLIOTT--Rev. John Nelson Elliott, of the Iowa Conference of the M.E. Church, was born in Belmont County, Ohio, December 8th, 1842, and died at the residence of Dr. Wesley J. Green, in Richwoods, Jefferson County, Iowa, September 5th 1872; aged 29 years, 8 months and 27 days.

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-----
