One of my shortest obituaries is for John Stine. John was born 4 April 1821 in Greene Co., PA to Michael B. & Hannah Jane Alton Stine. He was one of 15 known children. John moved to Monroe Co., OH with his parents. It was there that he met and married Rebecca Milner 8 September 1842. Rebecca died in 1846 about a year after the birth of their second child. John then married Elizabeth Eckelberry, daughter of Abraham & Hannah Dawson Eikleberry, on 8 September 1847. They went on to have 10 children together, of whom Isaac is my ancestor. John died of typhoid fever on 8 June 1886 in Monroe Co., OH. He is buried in West Union Cemetery in Monroe Co., OH. John's obit appeared in the Monroe Gazette, Woodsfield, Monroe, Co., OH on 18 June 1886.
Isaac Edward Stine died 8 days later of typhoid fever on 16 June 1886. No obituary has been found for him. He was only 35 years old & had 9 young children with his wife, Rosanna Henthorn.
