The Lima News | Williams and Davis funeral home - Lima Ohio

Oil field deaths could be spectacularly gruesome; the funerals interesting.When an oil field worker from Cleveland named Earl Bush was killed in a nitro-glycerine explosion in October 1902, the Lima Times-Democrat noted that “such of the mortal remains” that could be found were “contained in a box that was about nine or ten inches square” making for an “unusual and pathetic funeral service at the parlors of the Bennett Undertaking establishment.” The day before the service, the story added, searchers, including the new widow, combed the site of the explosion. “They succeeded in finding what is believed to have been a portion of Bush’s scalp. Only a few small fragments of flesh and bone were found by the searchers during the entire day.”Hall W. Bennett’s undertaking establishment was at 114 W. Market St., the former location of an undertaker named James E. Grosjean, who learned embalming and casket making as a young man in Holmes County, and came to Lima in 1892. Grosjean also built electric exhibits that were used in department store window displays. One of these, “Noah’s Ark,” can be seen today at the Allen County Museum. Shortly after the turn of the century, Grosjean sold his funeral business to Bennett.Davis worked as an embalmer for both Grosjean and Bennett. Born Otis Elias Davis north of Elida on March 18, 1876, he was the son of Alvin and Mary Salina Crites Davis and was known as Ote. His father was in the livery business, a business Ote Davis was associated with early on, working for Hiram Colvin driving a horse and carriage between the Public Square and Lima’s passenger railway stations.Around 1895, Davis went to work for Grosjean, earning his embalmer’s license “after several years of practical schooling,” according to the Times-Democrat.As Lima moved into the 20th century, Davis moved briefly to a different career. “Ote Davis, who has been one of J.E. Grosjean’s most efficient employees during the past five years, has resigned his position and has purchased a half interest in the Columbia restaurant from Frank Schlupp. Mr. Davis is an exemplary young man and his legion of friends wish him abundant success in his business venture,” the Times-Democrat wrote May 16, 1900. In June, Davis married Schlupp’s daughter, Clara.By 1903, he had changed course again, returning to work as an undertaker with Bennett,...

White Sulphur Springs and Rainelle, in Greenbrier County, and Richwood, in Nicholas County.Two major bridges in Kanawha County, between Dunbar and South Charleston and between Nitro and St. Albans, were closed for several hours early Friday after a barge got loose and struck them. They were reopened Friday morning after state Department of Transportation inspectors deemed them safe.White Sulphur Springs got 9.17 inches of rain over the past 48 hours, NWS meteorologist Andrew Beavers said, the most in the state.As of Friday evening, U.S. 119 remained closed near Herbert Hoover High School and near the Clendenin exit of Interstate 79 in Kanawha County, according to the DOT. Other closed roads included W.Va. 82, from Cowen to Birch River in Webster County, W.Va. 20 at Webster Springs, W.Va. 41 at the Fayette-Nicholas county line, W.Va. 20 at Rainelle in Greenbrier County, W.Va. 39, from Mill Point to Richwood in Nicholas County, U.S. 60, from Sam Black to Rainelle in Greenbrier County, and W.Va. 92 at the Greenbrier-Pocahontas county line.Kanawha County emergency officials and State Police urged residents not to travel in flood-ravaged areas, and asked people making non-emergency 911 calls to be patient.Officials said Friday morning that many emergency responders had been working for more than 24 hours straight.In Webster County, 12 water rescues were performed overnight Thursday, according to Richard Rose, county emergency manager. He said they included “everything from vehicles to campers to boats to homes knocked off the foundation and numerous propane tanks floating down the river.” It was difficult to assess damage, he said, partly because some areas were inaccessible and partly because internet and cellphone service is out throughout the county.Sgt. P.J. Cochran, of the Summers County Sheriff’s Department, said two firefighters had to be rescued after their raft flipped at about 2:30 a.m. Friday.Roger Bryant, director of the Logan County Office of Emergency Management, said Logan County escaped damage but emergency responders from the county assisted Clay County, which was hit hard. He said his team alone evacuated six people and six dogs. He said the Clay County 911 center was flooded by two feet of water and Nicholas County had to dispatch calls for the county.More than 21,000 Appalachian Power customers, including more than 6,500 in Kanawha County, were without power as of 6 p.m. Friday, according to the company’s website. Appalachian Power said in a statement Friday afternoon that the company estimated restoring power could take “well into the weekend” for some areas, and crews were unable to access substations in Clendenin and in Fayette County’s Brackens Creek because of flooding.Mon Power had more than 26,000 customers without power Friday evening, according to its website; of those customers, more than half were in Greenbrier County.West Virginia American Water said at noon Friday that about 3,000 Kanawha County customers were without water, along with about 500 in Fayette County and about 50 in Boone County.“Our crews are working around the clock to respond to water emergencies, but we anticipate much-longer-than-usual restoration times due to many areas being completely inaccessible,” Jeff McIntyre, the water company’s president, said in a news release.The water company’s main office in Charleston was without power, and several booster stations were running on generators, according to the release.Several groups and agencies have set up donation drives for flood victims. The United Way of Central West Virginia set up an emergency fund for people to donate to, either by contacting the United Way office or visiting www.unitedwaycwv.org.Charleston city officials, for a second day,...
