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


This file, Volume VIII, contains 503 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 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.

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

                       Lebanon Daily news obits of: 31 Aug. 1926...                A. B. SCHROPP HEAD NEWS CO. EXPIRED TODAY   Adam B. Schropp, president and Treasurer of the Lebanon News publishing Company, passed away quietly this morning at 8:45 oclock, at his home at 829 Church Street, following an illness of more than two years, suffering from a complication of diseases. The announcement of his demise came as a shock to the community. Mr. Schropp, who was noted among his friends and acquaintances for his remarkable activity and his youthful appearance as he approached the 70th. milestone in his career, was stricken ill in the early spring of 1924. An operation and several months of treatment at the hands of some eminent Philadelphia specialists, however, seemed to be effective, and he returned home greatly improved. Several more months of treatment and rest here seemed to restore him to an almost normal condition, and for more than a year, he was at his accustomed place at the NEWS office directing and leading the business affairs of this newspaper.   About three months ago, he showed a tendency toward decline, then about July 15th., he became so feeble that he was compelled to take to his bed at his Mt. Gretna cottage, where it was thought that the mountain air would restore his tottering vitality, but neither medical skill nor some expert nursing were effective. It was decided on Sunday to bring him back to the city owing to increasing weakness and the fear that he might be too feeble to make the journey later. The collapse was more complete than was supposed, and on Monday night the relatives were called when it was seen that the end was near. He passed peacefully into eternal rest  at 8:45, a. m.,with members of his immediate family at his bedside.   Mr. Schropp was the son of the late Henry Schropp, a United Brethren Minister. He was born in this city, December 2, 1855. In his early youth, he served as an apprentice at the old German printing office in Lebanon, and worked at his trade here for some time, and in several eastern cities, but later accepted a position as a traveling salesman for Coyle McCandlish & Company, a large wholesale grocery firm in Philadelphia. He was engaged in that form of employment for 12 years, when in 1892 he entered into a partnership with his brother, the late Jacob G. Schropp, & the late Joseph H. Light, bought the Lebanon Daily News, operating the property under the name of Schropp, Light & Schropp. Mr. Light passed away in 1902, and J. G. Schropp in 1911. A. B. Schropp, was therefore the last surviving member of the old firm. Another brother, Harry J. Schropp, who was associated with business at various times, and who at one time, served as treasurer, died in 1912.  A. B. Schropp, during his thirty four years of association with the management of the newspaper, confined his activities largely to the business office. His position as head of a Republican organ, with the acknowledged influence and prestige, naturally brought him many proffers of political preferment of a appointive character, and invitations to run for office, but while in one period of his career, he took a prominent part in party councils, but sought office only once, in 1903, when he was elected to the office of county treasurer.   While possessed of some busines interests outside of the NEWS, he was officially active in only one, the building and loan association. He was a member of the Chamber of Commerce, and lent assistance to most philanthropic & civic enterprises. His long connection with the Daily News gave him prominence among publishers throughout the state. He was a member of Trinity United Brethren for many years.   He leaves his wife, nee Sallie A. Yingst, daughter of the late John A. Yingst; and three children, Miss Daisy P. Schropp, and Dr. R. J. Schropp, the Eighth Street dentist, both residing at home; and Mrs. Ruth A. Wilder, wife of Henry L. Wilder, secretary of the NEWS Company, and managing editor of the newspaper; a sister, Miss Arbie Schropp, a retired school teacher; and a brother, Zach Schropp, of Kansas City. Arbie and Zach are the only two remaining members of what was once a large family. John K. R. Schropp,. vice president of the company, and business manager of the newspaper, a nephew, who for a long period of years, has been associated with his uncle, in operating thre property, is a patient at the Good Samaritan Hospital , where he is being treated for a fractured leg.

Lebanon Daily News obits Of: 26 Nov. 1920....(slightly edited).... Harry Behney, and his brother-in-law, Levi Bross, were instantly killed yesterday afternoon in a shocking accident at Grable. They were engaged in plowing in one of the fields on the farm of Amos Behney, the father of one of the unfortunate young men. And as they proceeded, they were dynamiting stumps to remove them. Several stumps had already been removed, and another was being loaded, when there was a premature explosion which was heard at the farm house. Mr. Behney, knowing there was something amiss, hastened to the field, and was horrified to find that both men were already dead. There was no eye witness to the tragedy, but from the condition of the bodies, death must evidently have been instantaneous. Both bodies were horrobly mangled, and the clothing of the victims were in shreds, and were literally torn from the bodies. Behney had a leg torn off at the hip, and Bross had both legs broken near the ankles, and both had frightful injuries. Mr. Behney was aged about 26 years, and resided at home. Mr. Bross, who was aged about 20 years, was married to a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Behney, about a year ago. He purchased a neighboring farm, (formerly the Grant Heffelfinger farm), and the couple took up housekeeping there only last spring. Funeral Director Isaac H. Bahney, of Myerstown, has charge of the arrangements for both funerals, and announcements will be made at a later date. (CK note: Harry Behney was interred in the Cedar Hill Cemetery, Fredericksburg.
