BELEW, ARTHUR PAGE died last Saturday morning (04 Dec 1909). About one year ago he had a severe spell of sickness & for weeks the final outcome was uncertain. He rallied & improved so much that he gradually resumed the practice of medicine, though, owing to his weakened condition, he could not, as for years had been his custom respond to every call. A little more than 2 weeks ago, he was again taken down & almost daily he grew worse until the end came about 3 o’clock Saturday morning. He was born on the Jumping Run farm (now the Belgravia Stock Farm & owned by Jas. Cox), on 24 Oct 1848 & was but little more than 61 years of age. While yet a small boy his parents moved to this place & his home from that time to the day of his death was in Edinburg. Upon reaching young manhood he began clerking in a store, but the business not proving congenial he gave it up & concluded to study medicine, the profession followed by his father, Dr. Peter Belew. He entered the medical department at the University of Virginia in Sep 1869 & although he had done very little reading along that line, he took the course in one year, graduating in June 1870 & taking second place in a very large class. The one man who put up a better examination than he had already taken his A. M. at that institution & given 3 years to the study of medicine. Coming home with his diploma he at once took up the active practice of his chosen profession, associating himself with his father & he was a busy doctor from the 1st day. The funeral services were conducted Monday afternoon from the Christian Church by Rev. D. H. Rhodes assisted by Rev. J. S. Hutchinson. The interment was made by Undertaker Lemmon in the new cemetery about 5 o’clock. His only surviving brother, Mr. A. L. Belew of Aurelia, Iowa who was hastening here as fast as steam could bring him, missed a connection at Cincinnati & did not reach here until 4:30 & the body, reposing in its handsome black-covered metallic casket was held in the church until his brother arrived that he might once more gaze upon the features of him he loved. The floral tributes were abundant & handsome consisting in part of a bunch of pink carnations from Mrs. W. C. Painter & Mrs. Hugh Saum, a wreath of white chrysanthemums from Mesdames Fannie Williamson, R. J. Walker & T. W. Allen of Mt. Jackson, a bouquet of the same from Mrs. I. M.

Levi &William Coffman of near this place, who were in Baltimore when he died, returning Friday evening & H. H. Coffman of Belington, WV. The shooting, it is learned, could have been avoided had Mr. Coffman & his partner, John C. Huber, in the lunch room where it occurred, known that Liddell was a desperate character. He had displayed the revolver some time before the shooting but they did not anticipate any trouble with him. He seemed inclined to be obstreperous but as he was in liquor they supposed when they sent him to the cellar to sober up so he would sleep off the effects of his jag. He had never given any trouble before. It has been learned that Liddell had penitentiary record in Florida & the Baltimore police have been informed that he was considered a bad man. He will most certainly be convicted of first degree murder. Said one of the pall bearers: ‘Had this terrible crime been committed in Virginia there would have been no need of a jury trial.

COFFMAN, RUSSEL B. - (From the Brunswick, Md. Blade-Times). “A heart attack with which he was stricken last Sunday evening, 03 August (year of death not listed) while bathing in the Braddock Heights swimming pool, proved fatal Monday evening to Russel B. Coffman, this city, a well known engineer on the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad at the Frederick City Hospital where he was taken following his collapse at the pool. While he regained consciousness after being admitted to the institution his condition was regarded as serious & little hope was held for his recovery. He was a native of Lantz Mill, Va. but resided in Brunswick for about 20 years during which he was employed on the Baltimore & Ohio. He was aged 45 years. Sunday afternoon he returned to his home after completing his trip on the road & with his wife & a party of neighbors & friends, motored to Braddock Heights where they planned spending the evening & enjoying a picnic & outing together. The party went swimming in the pool & after a short time, Mr. Coffman left the water & reclined on the bank nearby. A few minutes later he was stricken with a heart attack & his condition at once became alarming. Dr. J. Elmer Harp who happened to be in the pool at the time, attended him, assisted by a nurse & for a brief period his condition improved. He was later rushed to the Frederick Hospital for treatment. Prior to the attack Mr. Coffman was said to have dived twice into the water & it is believed that the combination of warm weather & cool water of the pool may have brought on the attack. Burke, s/o Mr. & Mrs. Coffman, who left Sunday morning on a trip to Canada, was notified of the illness of his father, at Camp Town, Pa. & immediately returned reaching the hospital shortly before Mr. Coffman expired.

FRAVEL, F. M. - The many friends in this place of F. M. Fravel were greatly shocked last Saturday morning by the news that he was dead. His end was the more painful to them because of the suddenness with which it came. He had been in this place on Friday, apparently in his usual health, except that he was heard to say that he had slight neuralgic pains on his breast. He returned to his home, at Lantz Mills, in the evening doubtless without an idea that he was then taking his last walk over the creek road that for years & years he had so frequently traversed. After eating his supper he went to the band room & for a while enjoyed the music of which he was very fond. He then went to the mill for a short while & from there home. He remained in the sitting room with the family for a short time & without saying he was sick in any way, went upstairs to his bed room & to bed. No sound was heard to issue from the room nor was the family disturbed during the night. When his sister, Mrs. Aletha Fravel, went into the sitting room Saturday morning she was horrified to find him sitting in his chair dead. He had gotten up some time during the night, dressed & gone downstairs - why or when no one knows. Funeral services were held at his late residence Monday morning by Rev. T. G. Nevitt of the Methodist church of which the deceased had been a member for 54 years. The interment was in the graveyard at Union Forge. Jos. F. Ryman of St. Luke was the undertaker. In the death of Mr. Fravel the Sentinel loses one of it warmest friends & most ardent supporters & we will miss him in many ways. His regular letters over the nom de plume of Rex were read by many of our subscribers with pleasure & interest. He was born in Woodstock on May 16, 1836 & was nearly 70 years of age. He was a school teacher by profession & 50 years of his life was spent in teaching. 22 of these years were in the school rooms of West Virginia & the remaining 28 in old Virginia. He was twice married. His 1st wife was Mollie Sprinkle of Harrisonburg & his 2nd wife was Leah C. Hockman of Slanesville, WV. To this last union 5 children were born, four of whom, Lena McCauley of Paw Paw, WV.., Misses Ada & Blanche of Lantz Mills & Chas. N. Fravel who lives in the West, survive him. His last wife died in January 1892. During the Civil War, he saw service in Co. C. 7th Va. Cavalry. (Date of death - 07 Apr 1906)
FRAVEL, GEORGE R. - One of the saddest & most tragic deaths which has ever occurred here was that of Mr. George R. Fravel on Sunday afternoon (22 May 1904). He was thrown from his carriage in a runaway & sustaining injuries from which death resulted within twenty minutes. Mr. Fravel had been breaking a double team of colts and had hitched them to a surrey for a drive and as they were coming out the alley, leading from the stable to the street they started to run. Although Mr. Fravel was a strong man he was not able to check the seemingly maddened animals. They turned into the street running east and west by the Reformed Church and ran toward the railway tracks. Mr. Fravel was getting into the surrey when the horses started to walk off. He was gathering up the lines but did not have them taut as they came out on the street. There is a slight fall from the pavement and the surrey must have run on them causing them to start in a short lope. Mr. Fravel succeeded in turning them up the street though he could not stop them. He called to several parties to run out and try to stop them, but this did no good. After crossing Muhlenburg street one side of the carriage struck a locust post lying with one end of the fence. This came near upsetting the carriage and throwing Mr. Fravel out. He lost the lines and his hat. As soon as he could regain himself he was leaning forward to gather the lines. It was in this position he was half standing when the wheel struck the wagon at Mr. J. S. Hoshour’s stable. When the carriage struck the post if seemed to add to the animals fright and taking advantage of the loosened reins they started on a dead run coming against the wagon with a terrible force. Mr. Fravel was thrown out on his head, but whether his head first struck the ground or the wagon is not known. The pole was broken to pieces, freeing the horses. The accident was witnessed by several residents who hastened to him. It was not difficult to tell that he was fatally hurt and that death was near. He was tenderly carried to the home of his brother, Mr. Charles Fravel. Drs. Smoot and Ford were soon there but Mr. Fravel was beyond human aid and in twenty minutes he had passed to his final rest, never regaining consciousness. Death was due to concussion of the brain. There were several slight scars on his head. Mr. Fravel had been conducting a furniture store and undertaking establishment for a number of years. The firm was formerly Fravel & Feller, but Mr. Fravel purchased his partner’s interest some years ago and has conducted the business himself. He was a thorough business man and enjoy the confidence of the public through his integrity. Thus he had built up a large trade. It is said that Mr. Fravel officiated at more than 2,300 funerals and this does not include the burial of bodies brought from a distance. His last was that of the late William Sheetz the day before the accident. He was associated with Mr. Rutz of Harrisville, in the undertaking business. As a citizen he enjoyed the confidence of the people and was given several of the town offices though unsought. His last office was that of superintendent of the water works. He was kind and generous to all and he will be missed. He was twice married, his first wife being a Miss Orndorff. Of this union there was one daughter, Mrs. Robert Myers of Allegheny, Pa. His second wife was Miss Maggie Feller who with two sons, Frank Fravel of Mount Jackson and Will Fravel of Pittsburg, Pa. survives him. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. DeNott of Bristol, Tenn. and Mrs. Fox of Little Washington and one brother, C. F. Fravel of this place. He was 55 years and 13 days of age. He was a charter member of King Arthur Lodge Knights of Pythias and was one of its mot active members. The Lodge committed the body to its final resting place with its burial ritual by the prelate, the Rev. T. C. Jones. The funeral service was conducted on Tuesday afternoon at 2 o’clock from the Reformed church by his pastor, The Rev. N. H. Skyles, assisted by the Rev. J. E. Shenk of the Lutheran Church & Dr. P. D. Stephenson, D. D. of the Presbyterian Church.

GOCHENOUR, WILLIAM J. of Joseph was instantly killed Monday afternoon (23 Jan 1939) while shredding fodder on his farm near St. Luke, 4 miles west of Woodstock.

One piece of the machinery just missed striking Mr. Gochenour’s son, Landon Gochenour, who was assisting his father at the time of the accident. Dr. Harold W. Miller, Shenandoah Co. Coroner was called & rendered a verdict of accidental death. Mr. Gochenour was a s/o the late Mr. & Mrs. Joseph Gochenour & was born in the Gochenour homestead where several generations of his ancestors had lived.

Surviving besides his wife, who was the former Miss Arbelia Keller are 2 sons, Landon Gochenour who with his family reside with his parents at the home place & Herman Gochenour at home, who at the time of the accident was in high school in Woodstock. Sister, Mrs. George Hoover of near St. Luke, Va. One brother, Charles Gochenour, it will be remembered lost his life in a neighborhood barn raising when the frame work of the structure slipped & he was crushed beneath it. Another brother who has passed was Dr. David Gochenour, a prominent physician of Stuart Draft, Va. who died from pneumonia in the midst of useful life.

He had been in business in Washington, DC. until about six months ago, when his health failed & he came to Woodstock, where he was born, to recuperate. Mr. Golliday was the son of the late Samuel Golliday, who dropped dead in the streets of Woodstock a year ago.

GOOD, NOAH - On Saturday evening, 03 Jun 1922, the quiet little village of Conicville was thrown into excitement when it was circulated that Noah Good who lived a short distance south of the village was dead. It developed that Mrs. Good had been away & when she came home she expected that Mr. Good was about the premises & called for him a number of times but getting no response she made inquiry from the neighbors. Getting no traces of Mr. Good & supposing that he had walked away somewhere she proceeded to do the evening chores. She fed a couple pigs, then went to see if Mr. Good had fed the larger hogs in the main pen & she found the food prepared but not put in for the hogs. She put the food in the pen & looking in the pen discovered the body of her husband lying on the floor. She gave the alarm & quickly a number of people gathered. Upon investigation, they found Mr. Good lifeless with his neck broken, the hogs to some degree mutilating the face about one ear. There was found in the pen a little scoop similar to those used in stores for scooping sugar, rice, etc. & a short board that indicated that he had in all probability climbed up on the slop chute & leaned over the high partition between the hog department & the feed department of the hog house & in leaning over had in some way become overbalanced & falling in on the cement floor on his head broken his neck. No one knows how it occurred, but this seems the most plausible theory. It seems that he tried to prevent the fall by grabbing at some boards & caught a short loose one instead of a secure one, which might have saved him. He was a member of the U. B. Church & the funeral was preached by the Rev. S. L. Baugher, his pastor in the Reformed church in Conicville & burial was made in the cemetery adjoining the church. Mr. Good was about 61 years old & leaves his companion, one son, John Good of Moore’s Store & one daughter, Maude, who married a Mr. Good & lives at Georgetown, Del. Both of the children were promptly notified of their father’s untimely death & both have come, the latter arriving home Monday morning.

HABRON, AMOS EDMOND - who departed this life Tuesday morning of last week (16 Sep 1913) was laid to rest by the side of the grave of his mother in the family grave yard Wednesday afternoon in the presence of a large crowd of people from far & near. The funeral was preached just inside the hall door of his beautiful residence by his pastor, the Rev. J. S. Wessinger, assisted by the Rev. W. L. Darr, who ably set forth the sad fact that in his death the sorrowing & sorely bereft family has lost a true, faithful & affectionate companion, the church a devoted & consistent member & one of its most substantial supporters & the community a kind & obliging friend & neighbor. His sorrowing widow, who was Miss Lucy C. Golladay who joined him in the sea of matrimony on Dec. 27, 1899, his aged father, 3 brothers, B. N., M. J. & J. C. Habron & 2 sisters, Mrs. John H. Rinker & Mrs. D. H. Walter survive to mourn his sad death. His father when led to the beautiful casket by Rev. Wessinger & his son, B. N. Habron to take the last sad view of his youngest & dearest son, touchingly repeated the words. “The Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away, Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Six nephews of the deceased acted as pallbearers, Bert, Luther, Arther & Roy Rinker, James A. Walter & Asa Habron. He was a faithful member of the Lutheran church for 25 years.
HABRON, JAMES the oldest man of the Fort Valley & probably the oldest in the county, died Wednesday night of last week (29 Oct 1913), about 11:45 at the advanced age of 93 years, 5 months & 1 day. He was quite a sufferer from the infirmities of age & a complication of diseases. He united in marriage with Saloma Sibert September 23rd, 1841. Three children, one son & two daughters were born to them. The mother died May 17th, 1846 & on September 9th, 1847, he married Elizabeth Ann Harman. This union was blessed with 11 children, six sons & five daughters. From her he was separated by death on May 11th, 1896. He was born near Dilbeck on the large farm now owned by S. E. Boyer and spent all his life here in this little Valley. He was the youngest son of his father, George Habron & wife, who was Sarah Armstrong before marriage. They were natives of Culpeper county & became settlers here, where they spent the rest of their days. The old sunken graves are on the place now owned by J. C. Habron. They had lived to a great age. Old Mrs. Habron at that time was the first & only member of the Methodist Church in the Fort. James Habron had at one time enlisted as a soldier in the Civil War, but did not serve but a few days having been detailed to work for the Government. As a husband & father he was always kind & affectionate; as a friend & neighbor he was held in high esteem by all who knew him. He was a faithful member of the Lutheran Church for nearly 70 years. The funeral was preached at Mt. Zion Church by his pastor, the Rev. Wessinger, basing his remarks on 2nd Timothy 4: 7,8. Interment was then made in the old Sibert graveyard, where his youngest son, Amos E. Habron, was laid to rest a few weeks ago. He is survived by 3 sons & 2 daughters, 12 grandchildren & 18 great grandchildren. Z. Taylor was undertaker, with W. N. Dinges, Perry Smoot, F. H. Golladay, D. E. Ritenour, S. E.

HEADLEY, CHARLES F. - In the wake of the shock which came to the people of Shenandoah Co. because of the tragic death of Charles F. Headley on Friday afternoon (09 Feb 1924) there followed a pall of sadness which enveloped the entire County. Few could realize that one who but a few minutes before had conversed with friends on the streets of Woodstock had met his Maker face to face. He was stricken in the very flower of his manhood & no one seemed more remote from the shadow of death. For 8 years he served as Treasurer of Shenandoah Co. The details of his death are meager & to an extent conjectural for only a 6 year old boy saw the fatal plunge of the automobile. The coupe was driven by Mr. Headley to the brink of the race at Stonewall mill & upon his return from an inspection of a fish ladder in the dam across the Shenandoah river at that point, he evidently cranked the car. The machine moved forward & the indications are that he attempted to stop the automobile by throwing his weight against the radiator. The sad sequel shows that his efforts were unavailing & he was pushed over the embankment into nine feet of water followed by the coupe which pinioned him beneath the surface. His body was found in an almost upright position, leaning over the radiator. The car was in high gear & the brakes released. Just what time elapsed from the witnessing of the accident by the Gill child until rescuers reached the fatal spot is problematical, for the boy ran to the house about 100 feet & told his mother, Mrs. Carl Gill of the accident. The latter came to the front of the house, saw the almost submerged car, called to Hubert Artz, a short distance away & he with Canter Sine procured a boat & brought the body to the surface. At least 15 minutes must have elapsed from the time of the fatal plunge until efforts to remove the body took place. Pending the arrival of physicians, the limp form was placed over a barrel & an attempt was made to expel the water from the lungs. Doctors, J. H. Smoot, W. C. Ford & F. Wilson Gearing did all that medial skill could suggest but it was too late to rekindle the spark of life. The body was taken to the undertaking establishment of Frank M. Fravel & prepared for burial, after which it was removed to his home, after which it was removed to his home in Edinburg. Services were conducted in the Edinburg Christian Church by Rev. D. H. Rhodes who had officiated at Mr. Headley’s wedding to Miss Mary Windle. Pallbearers, Mayor H. H. Newman of Edinburg, T. W. Allen, J. C. Hutchinson, R. C. Wightman, F. C. Dinges & W. C. Painter. Interment in Massanutten Cemetery, Woodstock. s/o Mr. & Mrs. William Headley & was born near Maurertown 50 years ago on 02 Apr.

HUPP, BOYD - In past years Strasburg has had many tragedies, but seldom has the community been more shocked or so saddened as when the news was spread late last evening that Boyd Hupp had come to his death by his own hand. To his many friends and the community in general, it was unexpected & to the immediate family & closer friends it was a great shock & yet it is recalled that for some time past & particularly in recent weeks, Boyd had been noticeable melancholy. Preparatory to butchering today, Boyd, his younger brother, Bruce & George Hollis, a colored farm hand, went to the woods yesterday morning to cut a load of dry wood. At noon they returned to the house with the intention of going after the wood with a team after dinner. As two were sufficient to bring the wood, Boyd left the impression that he was going to town on some business. Between 3 & 4 o’clock, when Bruce returned from the woods he inquired for Boyd from his aunt. Mrs. Ramey said she saw him going up the pike toward what is commonly known as Hupps Hill & which is in the opposite direction. Shortly afterward Bruce suggested to the colored boy that they could take a little hunt before feeding time & set out in practically the same direction. When nearing the top of the hill, in what is known as the ‘breastworks field’, Bruce was startled to see the lifeless body of his brother, in a half sitting & half lying posture, by a small cedar tree with a 38 caliber army revolver by his side. Boyd was once a private in the U. S. Army & it was with this weapon that he took his life. The field in which he was found was a battlefield during the Civil war. His body when found was under a cedar tree at a point where the old roadway of the Valley Pike crosses one of the old trenches. While seated under the tree he had emptied four chambers of the revolver into his left breast. Only one bullet took effect in his heart; two penetrated the cedar tree against which he was leaning, the third was found on the surface of the tree & the fourth remained within his body. A few minutes after Bruce had found the body, Harry Ridings & Hugh Stoneburner were walking out the pike nearby & were summoned by George, the young colored fellow. Dr. White was then called; it being then about 4 o’clock. The body was cold which indicated that death had come at least 2 hours previously. No inquest was held, it being deemed that the evidence of suicide were sufficient. Boyd Huff had reached his 34th year on the sixth of October last. He is a son of the late Frank Hupp & is survived only by his Mother, Mrs. Catherine Hupp & the one brother, Bruce. He was in the U. S. Army several years, had spent some time in Ohio, but had spent most of his life here. (Date of death - 03 Dec 1913)

HUTCHESON, WILLIAM H. a well known farmer of this neighborhood died very suddenly yesterday evening (22 Jun 1905. W. A. Wrenn & M. L. Grove drove out to Mr. Hutcheson’s farm yesterday morning to by some horses from him as he raised a good many & always had some ready for market. They purchased one horse & then Mr. H. brought out another which he offered to sell. He mounted the animal in order to show the buyers how well it moved and rode it off at a rapid rate. After going a short distance, he turned the horse & rode back to where the purchasers were standing. As he rode up he put his hand to his forehead & said ‘how my head hurts’. As he uttered these words he began to fall from his horse, but Mr. Grove caught him & eased the sufferer to the ground.
