Bryan Democrat (Bryan, OH), 3 May 1907, p1c4 – obit of Robert H Chisholm:
War Veteran Dead at Edon
Robert Chisholm served in two wars and wanted to serve in the third
Robert H Chisholm a veteran of the Mexican and Civil Wars died at his home in Edon, Tuesday following a short illness.  He served as a regular in the army during the Mexican War, learning while in Mexico to speak Spanish, and the Mexican language.  He also could speak German.  He was married to Rachel Jewell 17 July 1849.  Nine children were born to this union.  When the call to arms was given in 1862 he left his wife and little children and enlisted 18 July 1862 for three years in the CW where he held office of orderly sergeant in Co B of 104th OVI until his discharge at the close of the war at Louisville, KY, 29 May 1865.  He was a miller, a carpenter, a painter, and a man of genius, but above all things else a man full of patriotism and love for his country was the uppermost thought of his mind and during the late war with Spain would gladly have gone into service again, but his age prevented him.  Robert Chisholm was born 7 Mar 1822 in Huntington Co, PA, being of Scotch descent, bound out as a boy by his father to learn the carpenter trade until 21 years of age.

He died 23 Apr 1907 aged 85Y 1M 16D still having a bright mind and able to recall events of his past war record.  Funeral held at Christian Church conducted by Elder Winbigler and assisted by Rev Hodge.  Burial with military honors by the old soldiers in Edon Cem.

Bryan Democrat (Bryan, OH), 13 July 1906, p7 c1 – obit of Mrs RH Chisholm: On Tuesday afternoon July 3 Mrs RH Chisholm died at her home in Edon.  She had been an invalid for years.  Her Christian life won her many friends and she will be greatly missed.  Funeral services were held at the Christian church Thursday afternoon.  Interment at Edon Cem.

The couple was married in Williams Center, Center Twp, Wms Co, OH on 14 Mar 1860 (Marriage V3 p96).  Mary, born on 22 Jan 1837 in Crawford Co, OH, was the daughter of Robert and Sarah Delano Mitchell Maze, who lived in Bridgewater Twp.  Charles Henry Yeagley was born in Feb 1839, also a possible Crawford County native. 

Mary charged her husband with adultery; the third party was Martha J. Chisholm.  This happened on 15 Nov 1875 near Edon in a certain buggy and again on 17 Nov 1875. She also stated that Charles was violent and struck her on 17 Oct 1875.  Charles was a habitual drunk for two years or more.  Mary said she owned Lot 96 in Edgerton and wanted a reasonable alimony.  The couple had two sons, James Ashley (15) who temporarily resided with William Britton, and Kyle Clifton (8).  A divorce was granted in May 1876.

On 10 December 1861 Nathan I Davis married Sarah Gilson in Columbiana Co, OH; Note given the letters I and the J are similar, this could be this Nathan.

Nathan, a shoemaker, was 54 from Bryan, OH and Harriet was 39 from WI but she was a resident of Jasper, MI. On their marriage license Nathan’s parents were listed but not Harriet’s.  Nathan had been married twice before while Harriet had been wed once before.  Their witnesses, LM McElroy and Mary M McElroy, appear to be related to officiating minister, GB McElroy, which implies that the couple eloped.

Hannah Tindall Cline v William Cline (Roll 7 Box 22 case number 4 - Nov 1848)
The record did not provide a marriage date or place for this couple.  The marriage was performed by J Pierce in Wood Co, OH on 26 February 1842.  According to the 1850 Brady Twp, Wms Co federal census, p4B, the wife was enumerated as Hannah Cline 21 PA, Sarah 6 OH, and James 5 OH.with no husband listed.  Hannah charged that William refused to provide for her and the two children, Sarah Jane and James K. Polk Cline.  William assaulted her, was immoral, profane, and tyrannical.  He committed adultery with Carolyn Fitch and was lodged with her at the time of the initial filing of this case.  Hannah wanted custody of the children, reasonable alimony, and her possessions.  The divorce was granted.  In the above mentioned census record Hannah's neighbors were Delan Rockwell and his wife Hannah plus 6-year-old Orlando Fitch.  Whether they were part of this situation is not known. In the 1860 West Unity, Brady Twp federal census, p139b, son James Cline 15 OH dry goods clerk lived with Serayne Prince 61 PA dry goods merchant.

Hannah Tindall Cline’s obit was found in the Bryan Democrat, 12 May 1904, p6: Hannah was born near New Castle, Lawrence Co, PA on 22 Oct 1823 and died at home of her granddaughter, Mrs RM Rice, on 28 Apr 1904.  As a youngster she moved to Huron Co and later to Richland Co, OH where she married William Cline and then in 1840-1841 they moved to West Unity, Williams Co, OH.  Note that the marriage took place in Wood Co, OH in 1842 so the data in the obit is not correct. They had two children, Sarah M who died in 1871 and James K Polk Cline who was CW vet of 38th OVI; James died in the war.  Mrs. Cline moved with her daughter (Sarah) to Bryan in 1862.
