229 Amon Chew, an engineer on the Bee Line Railroad, formerly a resident of Rome and Shiloh, this county, met his death at Cleveland on Wednesday morning at half-past 2 o'clock, in the following tragic manner: Pony Engine, No. 40, took a train of cars to the Bee Line yard near the Cincinnati slip, and was returning across the high trestle crossing at Scranton avenue.

Here lie the remains of
Anne Gregory.
Who departed this life 28th of October 1841
In the 74th year of her age.
She was consort of
William Gregory of King Willia County,
Whose body reposes near this of his beloved wife.
Cheerfulness, the result of innocence, always sparked in her
fac, and by the sweetness of her temper she gained universal
good will. Her husband enjoyed in her a dutiful wife; her
children an indulgent mother; her servants a gentle mistress,
and her acquaintences a faithful firend.

Rest here oppressed by pale disease no more,
Here find that calm thou sought so oft before.
Rest undistrubed beneath this humble shrine,
Angels awake thee with a voice like thine.
