Fred A. Dawson
(Father of Margaret Geogline)


Having taken his own life, the body of Fred A. Dawson, 47, farmer, living between West Millgrove and Bloomdale, was found hanging to a rafter in a barn on his farm early this morning.  His act is attributed to financial worries.  Coroner J. C. Wetherill conducted an inquest this morning and returned a verdict of suicide by hanging with melancholia and despondency induced by financial difficulties as contributory causes.

Mr. Dawson arose at about four o'clock this morning as usual and went out to the barns, supposedly to do the chores.  Mrs. Dawson arising at about six o'clock went out to the barn to milk and discovered her husband's body.  Dropping her pails, she rushed to another barn and notified "Red" Standard, hired man on the farm, and the two of them brought the body down, Mrs. Dawson holding up the feet and Standard cutting the rope.  Dawson was dead at that time.

The local sheriff's office was notified and Deputy Miller, accompanied by Coroner Wetherill, drove to the Dawson farm.  Upon discovering that the dead man's hands were tied behind his back they called Chief Deputy Pratt, who also visited the scene of the tragedy.  However, the officers later decided that Dawson had managed to tie his own hands.  It is thought that he climbed up a ladder standing in the corner of the barn, slipped the rope noose over his neck and stepped off the ladder after tying his hands together with a strap.  He was able to do this by a clever arrangement of slip-knots.

Mr. Dawson is survived by his wife and two children, both young girls.  In one of his pockets was found a note addressed to them advising them to sell out and quit farming and blaming himself alone for his act.  The note indicated that "money trouble" was the cause of his suicide.

Obituary of Mrs. Louise Watkins Goeglein

Dated 2-4-1928 (I donít know if that is the newspaper printing date or the death date)

Mrs. Louise Watkins Goeglein

Died suddenly Saturday afternoon following an operation in a Columbus hospital.

 As the result of a major operation, Mrs. Louise Watkins Goeglein died Saturday afternoon in the Radio hospital, Columbus.  The operation was performed Friday and she came through the ordeal with indications that she might recover.  However, she suffered a relapse from which she was unable to rally and death followed in a few hours.

 The Finsterwald ambulance went to Columbus Sunday and brought the body to their undertaking parlors where it was prepared for burial Monday.

Mrs. Goeglein was 23 years of age and was the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Reed of this city.  She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Watkins, the motherís maiden name being Hortense Reed who died several years ago.  Her father was again married and has a wife and two children, the family having resided in Florida for several years past.  Word came from him Sunday that he would be here Wednesday afternoon to attend the funeral, which is being held this afternoon. 

At the age of 17 she was married to Raymond Goeglein, well-known Pomeroy boy, but they were divorced about two years ago.  They had a little daughter, Virginia, who makes her home with her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Goeglein, Pomeroy.
