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


This file, Volume II, contains approximately 400 obituaries. Other volumes are available on the LDN Obits main page.

Please be patient while this relatively large file loads.

This is a raw, unsorted, and unalphabetized file of obituary listings 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.

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

Lebanon Daily News front page of: 6 Jan 1916. -HEADLINE---- Elmer Copenhaver Shot Himself While In Bed ---- --SUBHEADLINE-- Suffered Intensely With Stomach Cramps--Tragedy Occured at His Home on North Doe Alley-- Age 23 and an Iron Worker Half crazed by stomach cramps, Elmer E. Copenhaver, of 534 N. Doe Alley, shot and killed himself at his home on Wednesday evening at about 5:10 o'clock. He was 23 years of age and was widely known. Copenhaver was a sallow complexioned young man of light build, and was frequently suggested that he was not strong enough for his job at the West Works of the American Iron and Steel Company. This opinion was strengthened during the past year when he was seized at times with terrible stomach cramps. These attacks came unexpectedly and were sometimes of brief duration, but while they continued he suffered untold agony. He suffered such a spell on Wednesday morning, and in the afternoon he did not go to his work, but went to bed. Dr. H. C. Witmeyer prescribed for him during the afternoon but the pain came upon him with a terrific force and he writhed in agony. Roy Kindt, a fifteen year old nephew, of Inwood, who was visiting at the Copenhaver home, and Copenhaver's mother, were seated in the dining room on the first floor, when they heard the report of a gunshot, and they rushed to Elmer's bedroom and were overwhelmed with fright to see him lying in bed with a gaping hole in the right side of his forehead, and a smoking revolver clutched feebly in his right hand. Even as they looked, he breathed his last, for quantities of brain were oozing from the bullet hole, with the blood. William Bleistine, proprieter of the North Lebanon House, and other neighbors who heard the shot came to the rescue of tha aged mother and did their best to comfort her. The suicide is particularly distressing, because of the bright prospects the young man seemed to have in life. A comparitively short time ago he purchased the home he lived in with parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ephraim Copenhaver. Burial took place in Sattazahn¹s Lutheran Cemetery, Lebanon Co., Pa.
