OBIT: ELLINGER, 1920, HOCKING CO. OH
OBITUARY OF CHARLES (CARL) WILLIAM ELLINGER
Carl William Ellinger, son of Philip and Carolina Ellinger, was born in
Marion Township, Hocking County, April 18, 1853. He was baptized and
confirmed in the Lutheran faith in his youth and has always been identified
with this church. He has followed farming all his life and in the past 20
years has been a tenant on the Case farm east of Logan. Mr. Ellinger was
first married to Magdalene Daubenmier. Eight children blessed this union,
two having preceded their father to eternity. The surviving children are
Elizabeth, wife of Edward Beougher of Rockbridge, Charles and Anthony
residing in Springfield, Amos and Mary, now Mrs. Montgomery, of Logan, and
Frederick of Nelsonville, also 18 grandchildren. His companion was taken
from him in death in May 1905. Four years later he was joined in marriage
to Mrs. Ella Tucker with whom he lived happily until death separated them.
About two years ago the deceased suffered from a long siege of typhoid
fever, his life was despaired of and his recovery was slow, he hadn't been
himself since. On Wednesday noon,, he was seriously injured when attempting
to lower the hammer of a shotgun, the gun accidentally discharged, the force
of the recoil struck him with such force in the abdominal region, that
despite all that science and loving care could do, he departed this life
Tuesday, July 6th at about 8:00 am. His age was 67 years, 2 months, 18
days. Mr. Ellinger was a hardworking Christian man, always ready to lend a
hand where help was needed, well spoken of wherever he was known. The
communion record of St. Matthew's Lutheran Church shows a remarkable record
in as much as he has missed but one communion service in ten years. If he
was not at his place in church on Sunday, there was a good reason for it.
Since his unfortunate accident he was strengthened by the sacrament of his
Lord and put himself and his loved ones into his keeping. He is dead, yet
he liveth, his spirit, his loyalty to the Lord and his church will bring
fruits in you. Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord, yea saith the
Spirit they rest from their labors but their works follow them. Funeral
services were conducted from the Hunter St. Lutheran Church, Tuesday
afternoon; the attendance was such that the church could not hold all that
had come to pay their respects. Internment at Oak Grove Cemetery. Rev.
C.F. Lauer officiated. Harden & Co., Funeral directors..
