OAKES, Mrs. Harriet Bird (abridged)

Mrs. Harriet Bird Oakes of Cleveland, .............(unreadable) died at 10 o'clock last night, as the result of hemorrhage of the ........(brain?? unreadable) following injuries she received in a fall down the ba
sement stairs of her home last Tuesday morning. She became unconscious immediately following the accident in which condition she remained until her death. An Elkhard physician was unable to discover evidence of a fracture of the skull but diagnosed the fatal condition as due to a rupture of a blood vessel. Other injuries of the patient were not considered of a serious character. About five years ago Mrs. Oakes sustained a fracture of the skull in a fall down the stairs leading to the upper part of the house and was in critical condition for days. Two years ago she sustained a severe scalp wound in a fall down the basement stairs. Mrs. Oakes had arisen early Tuesday morning. A son, John F. Oakes, had gone to the barn to do the morning chores, and a daughter, Miss Mary Oakes, was in the house with her mother. Mrs. Oakes had taken a butter bowl and started for the cellar to do some churning. The cellar is reached through a trap door which Mrs. Oakes had opened. Suddenly her daughter heard a noise and upon making an investigation found her lying at the foot of the stairs in an unconscious condition, with blood flowing from a scalp wound. A sister, Mrs. John Daly of this city, thinks Mrs. Oakes may have suffered a slight stroke of paralysis or a heart attack.
Came Here in 1850.
Mrs. Oakes, who was the widow of Benjamin F. Oakes, a well known resident of Cleveland township who died on October 9, 1909, was born in Somerset county, Pennsylvania, on November 22, 1843. They came here from Pennsylvania. Mr. Oakes was active in
Republican politics of Cleveland township and served the township as trustee for one or more terms. He taught a number of the district schools of the township. Surviving Mrs. Oakes are three sons: John F. Oakes; Edward Oakes of this city, who with three children is recovering from attacks of influenza; and Willard B. Oakes of Lansing, Mich; two daughters, Mary Oakes, and Mrs. Alice Jennings of South Bend; two brothers, John F. and Ephriam Bird of this city, and four sisters, Mrs. John Daly, Mrs. Etta Dotson, and Mrsl. Minnie Rowley, all of this city, and Mrs. Martha McArthur, whose exact residence place is not known to relatives here. She was the widow of Elil Lusher and with him conducted a restaurant here for many years.

Posted 12 January 2013 

Note: I am one of Alfred C. O'Baker's granddaughters and caught a couple mistakes in his obituary--which was taken from the Times-News
My mother was his oldest child and for some reason she was not included in the copy of the obituary. Her name was Phoebe O. Miller at the time of my grandfather's death.  Also, after much research, I was able to ascertain that his mother's name was not Mary Ellen but *Sarah Ellen. His mother died giving birth to him and his father remarried to a Mary Louise (O'Neil) sometime after 1901 but before 1910 (according to census records).  I mentioned this error in names to my last living uncle, Allen Dale O'Baker, and he said, "I had forgotten that." Evidently the family didn't talk about Grandpap's parents much. By the 1910 census, he was living with his grandparents as a "boarder."
Hope this is of assistance to some others researching the O'Bakers. I do have other information on the O'Baker family if anyone is interested.

TWO RUN DOWN AND KILLED ~ John A Obaker and Isaac Baxter Caught in Death Trap ~ Returning from work ~ They Were Engaged in Peeling Bark -  Had Finished Their Days Work and Had Sat Down to Enjoy a Breathing Spell.
Saturday evening last, John A Obaker, aged 41 and Isaac Baxter, 65, were both killed about one mile East of the state line by Baltimore and Ohio Express Train 16. Obaker had a contract to peel bark for John Lawson and Baxter worked for O'Baker and boarded at his home near Narrows Park about two miles from Cumberland. The men had finished work and were sitting on the track. O'Baker was little mutilated, but Baxter was ground to pieces. He was identified by the lower portion of his face. Mr O'Baker was a member of SS Peter and Paul Church, this city. He is survived by his wife and four children. He was a son of Henry O'Baker and his aged parents live in Cash Valley. Mr Baxter was a bachelor. Years ago he was a well known resident of Hancock, Md where his brother, Jack, also resided. Mr Baxter was an uncle of James Bryan of Baltimore. The remains of Baxter are being held at the morgue pending news from relatives who have been notified. Both bodies were taken in charge by Undertaker Butler. Mr O'Baker is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Henry W; Frank L and Fred O'Baker and Mrs Joseph Shoen?elle and Mrs Frank Boch. The funeral of Mr O'Baker will take place from SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church tomorrow morning at 9 o'clock. Interment will be in the cemetery of that church. Coroner George H Manz held an inquest over the bodies of the unfortunate men yesterday morning at Butler's Undertaking establishment and after hearing the testimony of a number of witnesses, the jury returned a verdict of 'unavoidable accident', the evidence showing the company though its employes did all in their power to prevent the accident.

"Lonaconing- Mrs. Catherine O'Brien, died suddenly at her home in Oakmont Sunday {26 Dec 1909}, aged 75. She came from Scotland to Piedmont in 1882. Her husband was killed on the B & O Railroad near Oakland in 1885. Three sons survive: Edward and James at Oakmont and Peter in Washington, D.C. The latter served as a soldier in the Philippines and is now in government service. It was Mrs. O'Brien's home that the men McGraw, Duggan and Lahew were burned to death last Friday night and no doubt this catastrophe was indirectly the cause of Mrs. O'Brien's sudden death.

OFFNER, Zadock Troxell

While being initiated into the Loyal Order of Moose, at Westernport last Monday night, Zadock Troxell Offner, of Keyser, better known as "Doc" Offner, suffered death from heart trouble when he received a shock from an electric apparatus made use of in the degree. Offner was of Keyser and one of the most popular railroad men in the employ of the B&O. He was strong and apparently possessed of the perfect of health. The electric generator used in the initiation is a small hand affair with dry battery and produces but a slight shock. Its use on a candidate while he is blind-folded, at times produces terror, yet does no physical harm. State's Attorney, Perdue stated that five candidates had been "put through the same course without harm to them before Offner was reached, but when it was applied to Offner, it is said he fell unconscious on the floor and though medical attention was at once given he never regained consciousness and died shortly after midnight. The authorities do not hold the loyal order of Moose responsible. Offner's uncle, Dr. Z. T. Kalbaugh, was at his side ten minutes after he was stricken. Dr. A. B. Kalbaugh and Dr. Wilson were also present. They were unable to revive Offner. Sloan Harner of Keyser was in the hall as was also Offner's chum, Benjamin Sims, who had just finished taking the degree when Offner was brought in. Elmer Crawford and Louis Conrad had just been put through with several others before Sims. Offner was a member of the Ancient Order Knights of the Mystic Chain and of the Brotherhood of Railway Trainmen. He carried an insurance to the amount of $1,500. He was 21 years old.  He is survived by his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Issac H. Offner, of Fairmont, and sisters, Mrs. Mollie Rice and the Misses Catoria, Mattie and Marguerite Offner. Services were held Thursday afternoon at the M E Church, conducted by Rev. Franck H. Havenner. Interment was made in Queen's Point Cemetery. The funeral was largely attended and the floral offerings were profuse.
