Obituaries from the Lebanon Daily News: Volume XVII
1900-Present


This file, Volume XVII, now contains 1112 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings mainly from the Lebanon Daily News. Due to time constraints, I was unable to alphabetize this file.

To navigate throughout this page, use the Find option found in the edit menu. This will allow you to find all listed instances of the name/surname you are searching for.

As I add more obits to this file, I will always drop them in at the top. This will aid returnees to this site from having to again browse the entire file. Note: I have these files listed as obituaries, but interspersed amongst the obits are; some funeral notices and also some funeral services. The notices and services many times contain information that is helpful to many researchers. In research there is no such thing as "too much information". Please overlook any duplications.

Many/most listings are connected to my family files, which are: Kindt, Copenhaver, Gettle, & McKinney.

Lebanon Daily News Item/Obit of: 23 Nov. 1926.... Mystery surrounds the death of Isaiah B. Wenger, 54 years old, farmer of Jonestown Route No. 1, whose lifeless body was found this morning one mile from his home by Grant Umberger,, a neighbor, after searching the fields and woods since 4 o'clock Monday afternoon. The widow of Mr. Wenger accompanied her husband Monday afternoon to the cabbage patch, on a farm owned by the deceased, known as the old Shirk homestead, about a mile from his residence. They cut cabbage and loaded it on a wagon. Mr. Wenger started to walk around the fields as had been a custom of his, to see how things look. He crossed a corn field while his wife remained in the cabbage patch. She last saw him tramping through the corn stalks in a field next to the cabbage patch. After he failed to return to her Mrs. Wenger decided that he would walk around the fields and finally be at the house about the time she returned with the horse and wagon. After calling several times and no answer, Mrs. Wenger continued to think that her husband waked to the house. On returning to her home, he was not there. Without suspicionn that anything occurred to Mr. Wenger, she went about her work and proceeded to prepare eatables for the evening meal. It was after 4 o'clock and dusk was fast coming on. Funally when time had rolled around and the man of the house was due, children and the widow became alarmed. His absence at that time of the day to the family ws unusual. When sons, Aaron E., who resides a short distance from the Wenger farm and is employed at Iona at a garage; Elliot, Amos and Jonas, the latter three all returned to their home, they were told of their father's absence. Without losing a second, they (the sons) proceeded to the cabbage patch and corn field, where their father was last seen walking by their mother. With flash lights and lanterns they scampered around the corn field thinking he was seized by an attack to which the father was subject. Five or six times the sons of the deceased man lined up across the corn field, walked between every stalk in an effort to find the missing man. When not even a trace of his footmarks were found neighbors were notified of Mr. Wenger's absence. Immediately neighboring farmers joined the hunting party and an all night search resulted, but to no avail. On horseback and foot the party of searchers, who were Grant Umberger, Amos Umberger, John Maurer, John Gettle and two sons, Harry Bross and one son, together with members of the family of the missing man searched every field and woods within a radius of two miles of the home. When daybreak finally came the searchers were tired and weary. They, however, did not give up the hunt and with renewed vigor traced over the same roads they covered during the night. Many times during the search for the missing man, his sons passed the body but failed to see it. A 8 o'clock this morning Grant Umberger passed the body but did not realize his success and continued a short distance. After proceeding several steps he decided that something looked like the form of a man under a huge limb of a hickory tree which was lying on the ground in the woods. On returning to the spot he found the body crumbled in a tangled position under the large limb. The feet appeared to be pushed into the ground. A knot on the side of the limb was pressing hard upon the face. The arms and shoulders seemed pressed almost together. Word of the discovery was sent to the other searchers. They ran to the scene where the man met his death. After raising the large limb of the hickory tree the body was removed and taken to the home. Undertaker H. B. Strauss, of Jonestown, was called and he immediately notified County Coroner Dr. F. Allen Rutherford. The coroner, after an investigation this morning, found that the left ankle was broken. The right ankle was dislocated. The right collarbone broken. Lacerations about the left ear. Blood appeared to be flowing from the nose and possible internal injuries. When a certificate of death was issued today, the coroner stated that death was due to the above injuries and probably exposer to the weather. Aaron, the eldest son of the deceased man, this morning stated that he ws of the belief that his father ws walking around the woods and was struck by the large limb which possibly was blown down by the wind, or that his father was attempting to release the limb from a hanging position and was unable to escape being struck. The huge branch when examined this morning by the coroner appeared to have been struck by lightning some time ago and was partially hanging to the body of the hickory tree with the tip on the ground. The branch, almost the size of an ordinary tree in weight, would probably pull the scale close to one ton. The deceased was a member of the United Zion church at Jonestown. He was a well-known farmer in that section of Lebanon County. Besides his widow, the following children survive; Mrs. Virdis Hauer, of Sand Hill; Mrs. Raymond Darkes, of Lickdale; Mrs. Owen Shamber, Lebanon; Mrs. Ralph Shamber, of Jonestown Rte. 1; Naomi, at home; Aaron E., of Jonestown Route 1; Elliot, Amos & Jonas at home.
