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


This file, Volume IX, contains 598 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.

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 will take place in Sattazahns Lutheran Cemetery, Green Point, Lebanon County.......Lebanon Daily News correction of: 7 Jan. 1916....

The mandied on Sunday morning at 4:45 oclock at the Good Samaritan Hospital. He was aged 63 years....RUN DOWN BY AUTO....Livering spent the evening at Rexmont with friends and started home after midnight with a neighbor, About a half a mile west of Rexmont between the town and what are known as the Carter Stables, they met John Spangler in an auto truck. Spangler, who resides in Rexmont, had hauled a baseball team to the Schaefferstown picnic on Saturday afternoon, and had delivered the team back at Cornwall, and was on the way back home. As the auto approached, Spangler says, the men seperated, one taking the left side of the road and the other the right. The autoist said that he had the men in full view in the glare of his lights and anticipated no trouble at all when suddenly, Livering stepped out into the road directly in the path of the auto. It was too late to stop, and the man went down under the wheels. It was difficult to understand. Just before he fell, he raised his hands.

A. Brecht.

This was done in a quick run with the auto truck, but the effort was useless, for the man was beyond all mortal aid.

Lebanon Daily News obits of: 4 Sept 1941....Front Page.... DANIEL LIVERING DIES IN ORE PIT ACCIDENT....Daniel E. Livering. 58 year old locomotive engineer of the mining settlement known as Burd Coleman, was almost instantly killed , and Samuel Williams, 40, of Miners Village, his fireman, was badly injured shortly after 12 oclock this morning as they were at their regular employment in what is known as "The Big Pit", of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation open-mine operations at Minersvillage. Accordiong to statements of night shift employees, Livering and Nagle were operating little mine shifting engines in hauling ore from one of the levels to "the pocket" where the material is transferred to an incline and hoisted to the crusher at the top of the hole. It was stated that Livering was waiting at a switch to take his cars out, while Nagle was inbound to the level with empties for filling. Nagle's engine failed to stop at the switch because of a mishap with the brake rigging,and there was a collision, not serious in itself, but enough to overturn Livering's engine, and it toppled over the brink into another open pit about forty feet below. The locomotive was reduced to scrap, and the engineman was imprisoned in the debris. Fellow employees rushed to the rescue and both men were hurried to the Good Samaritan Hospital. Livering was pronounced dead upon arrival by Dr. W. H. Means, but Williams was admitted, suffering from a fractured right ankle and severe physical shock. Livering, caught in the cab of the engine, suffered a fractured skull. Williams escaped a similar fate by jumping off the toppling engine as it went over the brink. It is a coincidence that Livering's wife, formerly Mrs. Elda Smith, also came to her death by violence. She was killed in an auto accident in the southeastern section of the county three years ago. Livering was a member of the Cornwall Methodist Church, & was also identified with membership of the Swatara Tribe of the Improved Order of Redmen, the Masonic order, and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Dr. Walter H. Brubaker, the county coroner, after an investigation, stated that there were no uncertain features involved, and as the facts are known, he does not consider an official inquest necessary. Interment in Cornwall Cemetery. He leaves a son, Paul, at Sparrows Point, Md.; and a daughter, Genevieve, at home; There are also six step-children; Mrs. Ethel Morris, Sheridan Route 1; George Smith, of Burd Coleman; Mrs. Velva Darkes, of Myerstown; Robert Smith, of Fort Knox, Ky.; Roger Smith, of the state of Washington; and Miss Geraldine Smith, of Reading.
