Nov. 23, 1913
Frank L. Menegay, a well known farmer, residing near Maximo, was burned
to death early Sunday morning when he entered his burning home in order to
secure clothing for his wife and two children, Magdalene and Lawrence, who
had escaped through a second story window.
Mr. Menegay had kindled the kitchen stove and went to the barn to do his
work. When he returned to the house he found the interior burning briskly. He
called to the members of his family and they escaped in their night clothes.
Mr. Menegay rushed into the house to get some clothing, but never came out
again. After the house was burned, the only part of his body that was found
was a portion of the spinal column. This was taken in charge by Undertaker
Paquelet and placed in a casket.
Mr. Menegay was aged 51 years. The members of his family who are living
are his wife, who was Miss Ida Monat, Mrs. Sherman Cunin, Harvey Menegay,
Lawrence and Magdalene Menegay. His aged parents Mr. and Mrs. Louis Menegay
are living at Canton, and the following brothers and sisters survive; Joseph
Menegay of Cleveland, Louis and Alfred Menegay of Louisville, Mrs. Mary
Frank, Mrs. Daniel Wearstler, Mrs. John Remmel and Ed Menegay of Canton.
Funeral services were held at St. Joseph's Catholic church at Maximo
Tuesday morning, and were conducted by the Rev. E. T. Calvey. Burial was made
in the Maximo cemetery.
