Mrs. Adam R. Hickman
The East Liverpool Tribune
Died on June 19,1902

Mrs. Nancy Hickman, wife of the late Adam R. Hickman, died at the residence of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph T. Smith, at 10:30 Thursday night. Interment at Riverview Cemetery, Sunday afternoon, at three o’clock, form the home of her daughter, where she died.
Mrs. Hickman was for many years a resident of Calcutta and was visiting her daughter at the time of her death. She was seventy-two years of age and leaves six children, three boys and three girls.

Mrs. Adam R. Hickman’s Funeral
The funeral of this well known lady was very generally attended Sunday afternoon, by many of her neighbors from Calcutta and St. Clair township, and her friends from this city. The large and elegant home of her daughter, Mrs. Joseph T. Smith, near Riverview cemetery, was not near large enough to hold the people. The house was overflowed with sorrowing friends, and the surrounding lawns and grounds were filled with people who came to see this lady who held such a warm place in their hearts. All her children and grandchildren were present except the family of her daughter, Mrs. J. M. Swan, of Canton, China. The children present were Val. Q. Hickman, of Pittsburg; Mrs. J. T. Smith and J. C. Hickman, of this city; E. N. Hickman, of Calcutta, and Mrs. J. A. McIntosh, of Cannon’s Mills.
The services were conducted by these ministers, Rev. Swan, for many years pastor of the congregation of which Mrs. Hickman was a member – the Long Run Presbyterian church, Rev. Snyder, the present pastor of the same congregation, and Rev. Clark Crawford, of the First M. E. church, this city. Dr. Swan’s remarks were most comforting and interesting. He told of the Christian character of deceased; spoke of the cross she undertook to carry when she gave up her daughter, who marred his own son, to go with him as a helpmate and missionary to far away China, and how uncomplainingly she bore this burthen, so heavy on a mother’s heart. When he pictured the going of the buggy out the lane the last time, bearing away this sweet daughter which she knew she would never see again on earth, there was not a tearless eye within the sound of hearing his words in all the home where the mother last lay asleep. He told how she gathered together her broken heartstrings, and took up again the work of her life in her desolated home, telling how her comfort come from the knowledge that all was well that her Lord and Master willed.. Dr. Swan called attention to the kind of a Christian home over which she was queen, and pointed to the way she had guided all the little footsteps, not only of her own children, but all her grandchildren, until every one was safely sheltered under the wings of some Christian church as members. He only wished there were more such mothers, and more such children to comfort others mothers.
Rev. P. W. Snyder, the new pastor of the Long Run church, followed with well chosen words of consolation and Scripture application to her well spent seventy-two years of life.
Dr. Crawford offered a touching prayer, in which he told of Mrs. Hickman’s great Christian faith, gathered from conversations during her last illness, from which time only his acquaintance dated.
Mrs. Hickman’s maiden name was Nancy Creighton. She was a sister of Mrs. Sarah Frederick, of this city, and a daughter of Thomas Creighton, an old pioneer of St. Clair township. She was born and raised within sight of the home, on the Hickman farm, where she lived so many years, one mile north-east of Calcutta. Here she was married in 1851 to Adam R. Hickman, oldest son of Nicholas Hickman, of Liverpool township, after which they moved to Van Wert county, this state, and went to housekeeping, where most of the children were born. Her husband sold his farm there about the close of the war, and brought the family back to this neighborhood, where he purchased the farm on which he died about five years ago.
After the services the remains were carried across the way to the lovely Riverview cemetery, where they were placed to rest beside her beloved husband.

James N. Vodrey Obituary

James N. Vodrey

Died on January 24, 1902

The East Liverpool Tribune

This well known pioneer potter died suddenly at the Riverside Hotel, Cambridge Springs, Friday evening, January 24, shortly after 6 o'clock. In company with Mr. B. Rand, the retired C. & P. engineer, he went to Cambridge Springs two weeks ago. He has been frequently going there for several years past, so has Mr. Rand. They talked of coming home on Saturday, and Mr. Vodrey had gone out and purchased some candies for his seven grandchildren, it being his custom to always bring them some when he came back from there. This was found in his overcoat pockets. About four o'clock he said to Mr. Rand: "let's stay until February 1. that's what we will do." Soon after they started out to visit the springs for their drink of water before supper. Mr. Rand and Benj. F. Harker, of this city, started for one spring, and Mr. Vodrey and a companion—Mr. J. D. Lewis, of Genesco, N. Y., concluded they would go to the Magnesia Springs which were nearer, as they both had been drinking rhe Magnesia Water. Mr. Rand and Mr. Vodrey, in fun, threw a few soft snow balls at each other. Mr. Lewis and Mr. Vodrey returned to the Riverside Hotel before the others, and the latter hung up his overcoat in the office, on the hook he usually did, and sat down near the heating register. He remarked to Mr. Lewis: "I will just show Barney how to eat a good supper tonight. I am all rady for one." He sat by the register a few moments, when he moved over where Mr. Lewis was. He remarked that it was time that the other fellows were back. In a few moments he said to Mr. Lewis' "Will you help me up to my room? I am sick." Mr. Lewis thought he was in fun, and said; "Of course I will." When he saw that Mr. Vodrey was indeed ill. He called the clerk and they took him to his room. Messrs. Rand and Harker soon came in. he asked the latter to telegraph his son, John W., this city, to come on at once—declaring that he was not going to get well. A physician was soon in attendance, who told his friends that he was dying. Within twenty minutes he was dead. The messages announcing his illness and his death were delivered at the same time, and were received here at 6:57 Friday night. His sons, John W. and Will. E. Started with a good team about nine o'clock for Beaver, where they caught the midnight train, and arrived at Cambridge at six o'clock Saturday morning. Three hours later they started for home, accompanied by Mr. Rand, reaching here at 3:40 Saturday afternoon.

Funeral services were held at his late home Monday afternoon, at two o'clock. Rev. C. F. Swift, of Beaver Falls, a former pastor of deceased's church, and the resident pastor—Rev. W. H. Gladden, conducted the services, assisted by Rev. J. C. Taggart and Rev. F. P. Hummel, of Toronto, the Methodist Protestant church choir had charge of the music. Interment followed at Riverview cemetery.

Deceased has been a member of the board of trustees of the Methodist Protestant church since its organization, and was known as one of the ever to be relied on workers in that church. While not demonstrative in his religion, and not given to parading his piety, yet he leaves a place in the church that will certainly be missed. He was a good every day Christian man, whose daily walk for nearly half a century is worthy of emulation.

James N. Vodrey was born at Louisville, Ky., June 20, 1834, and was in his 68th year. He married Isabel Jobling, of this city, December 31, 1859. The ceremony was performed by Rev. C. J. Sears, at that time pastor of the church he was a member of. His wife died about fifteen years ago, and with the exception of their first child, a little babe dying in infancy, his is the next death to take place in his immediate family. The living children are: Ellen V., now Mrs. Joel B. Taylor, Jno. W., president of the Vodrey Pottery Co., William E., and James N., also connected with the same pottery. Deceased lived in the same house, corner College and Robinson streets, over forty years. The house was built by his father, Jobez<sic> Vodrey, and was his home until he died.

The Vodreys have been long connected with American pottery, Jabez Vodrey, their father, came to America in 1827, and engaged in making yellow ware on the "Old Fourth Street Road," now Fifth Avenue extension, out of Pittsburg. About 1832 he went to Louisville, Ky., and became connected with a pottery there. James N. Vodrey was born while the family lived in Lousiville. Several years afterward a party of English capitalists built a potery <sic>at Troy, Indiana, and his father became associated as manager, but it was impossible to carry out the intention of the owners to make C. C. ware from the inferior clay found there. In 1847 he came to East Liverpool in search of work. The manufacture of Yellow and Rockingham ware was flourishing here then. When Woodward, Blakely & Co. took the contract to make the tera<sic> cotta ornaments for the old Pittsburg Cathedral, a contract involving over $10,000, the Vodreys were employed. The contract had much to do with the failure of the firm in 1857. There was quite an amount of hard earned dollars due the Vodrey Brothers for wages, and in settlement of the claim in court they bought all that portion of the Woodward & Blakely pottery east of College street. The firm of Vodrey & Bro. Was established in 1857, and was incorporated as the Vodrey Pottery Company in 1898. They have traveled all along the line of pottery production from yellow Ware to finely decorated Semi-Porcelain.

James N. Vodrey was on of the directors and original stockholders in the First National Bank, of this city, and at a recent meeting of the board of directors the following resolutions were prepared and adopted:

"Whereas, it has been the will of God to take from this world our friend and former member, James N. Vodrey, and one of the original shareholders of this bank.

"Resolved, that we feel it our duty to express officially our regard and respect for our late fellow-member, as well as our deep regret at hs decease; ever faithful to his official duties, judicious and considerate in all his business relations, and so genial, cheerful and kind in his social characteristics, that we profoundly realize that we have lost not only one of our most esteemed members, but also a personal friend. His high character for integrity, candor and manly virtue was such as to endear him to all as a companion and friend. We deeply deplore his death and sympathize with his family in their great affliction." DAVID BOYCE, President, N. G. MACRUM, Cashier.

The late William G. Smith was an uncle of deceased. She was born in what was formerly Fawcettstown, April 21, 1828, but then known as "Liverpool," the prefix "East" not being added until its incorporation in 1834. The place of her birth was on Third street, near the public square. Her father and mother were married in the old log house which stood on the east side of West Market street, near where the Union Planing<sic> Mill is located. Her girlhood days were all spent in this community, as well as her half century of happy married life. She was a part of the early days of East Liverpool, and a very much loved and respected part.

Away back in the forties, Mr. Thomas Anderson came to East Liverpool, and found employment with Isaac W. Knowles and James Knowles, furniture makers, then doing business on Second street, where the L. R. Farmer block stands. Marie Louisa Warrick lived with her father, near the corner of Second and Union streets, adjoining the hotel of Wm. Devers. Here the deceased was wooed, and while visiting at the home of James Warrick, near Beaver, Pa., she was married, November 12, 1847, to Thomas Anderson, a native of Beaver county. The marriage ceremony was performed by the Rev. Wm. Cox, the well known pioneer Methodist minister of Beaver. Mr. and Mrs. Anderson at once went to housekeeping in the old Warrick homestead, partly connected with the store, corner Second and Union. The husband soon made arrangements to build a home of his own, and purchased a lot on Walnut street, from William McKee, and later the one adjoining, from William Robinson, Sr., the potter and crate maker, who afterwards moved to Akron, where the Robinson family founded the great stoneware and sewer pipe factories. Mr. Anderson at once erected the home which has been occupied by his wife and he for almost fifty years. A very happy, cosy<sic> and comfortable home it has been. Here thir eight children were born, of whom only four are living—Mrs. Lizzie Nangle, of Princeton, Ill., Mrs. Marie L. Ramsey, of Wellsville, John E. Anderson, of this city, and George T. Anderson, of Cleveland, former4ly with the "Tribune", now with the Cleveland "World." Mrs. Anderson has two sisters living—Mrs. Esther Thomas and Mrs. Susan Harker, both of this city. She was a half-sister of Mrs. U. D. Scott, of New York city, Mrs. Robt. D. Boyd and Mr. Joseph Warrick, both of this city.

Deceased was, at the time of her death, the next to the oldest living member of the First Presbyterian church, which she became a member of when worship was held in the old white frame one story church, on the corner of Jackson and Third streets, where she became a teacher in the Sunday school, and has been ever since active inn both Sunday school and church work, which was so fitting spoken of by her pastor, Rev. Charles G. Jordan, in his remarks during the funeral service, which was held at her late home Tuesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock. The home was filled to overflowing by the many friends she had throughout the city, not only among the older families, but with those who met her in social and church work. Interment was made at Riverview cemetery, where her body was tenderly borne to its resting place by her sons, John E. and George T. Anderson, assisted by D. A. Nagle, John W. Ramsey, George W. Thomas, and Benj. F. Harker.

Not having a relative in the city, the company for whom he worked employed a nurse and instructed Dr. Hobbs to see that the young man had every attention. Mr. and Mrs. Kline were also very attentive. The fore part of this week he was so very ill that the doctor visited him as often as six times a day. His sister, Mrs. George Marshall, of Ashland, Ky., arrived on Thursday. He was some better after she came, and had quite a nice talk with him that afternoon, several times when he was fully conscious. He seemed so glad to see her. Thursday night he grew worse and died before daylight. The young man was about twenty-one years of age. The employes <sic>at the Patterson Machine Co. voluntarily raised a purse of over$20 to purchase flowers in memory of their fellow workman. Mrs. Marshall on Friday was invited to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Monroe Patterson, where she will remain a guest until Saturday, when she will accompany the remains down the river to his old home. In the short time Ed. Bowen was in East Liverpool he made some very warm friends, and all who knew him speak most highly in his behalf.

The East Liverpool Tribune

Died on June 5, 1901


Died at Her Home in Akron Monday Noon.

The funeral of this well known and most estimable former East Liverpool woman was held at her late home, East Akron, Wednesday afternoon. She had been in ill health all winter, which was spent in Floride. She returned a couple of months ago, but not much improved. She sank sweetly into her last long sleep surrounded by her three children and their families—Bryon W. Robinson, Mrs. Frank Adams, and Russell Robinson—all living in homes adjoining her own. Her early girlhood life was spent in East Liverpool, where she came as Ellen Lee from England wither mother, who became Mrs. Joseph Kendall. Ellen Lee made her home mostly in the home of the late Benjamin Harker, by whose children she was most tenderly known as "Aunt Ellen" from their earliest days of recollection. She was later invited to make the home of Hon. And Mrs. Josiah Thompson her home, which she did until she was married to Mr. William Robinson, and shortly after removed to Akron, which has since been her home. She was at the home of Mr. Thompson when he and several of his family were attacked with small pox, and as they offered her a home when there was no dread disease, she made it her home when there wass, and helped to care for those who were in danger. She was a woman of most generous heart, lovable disposition and noble character. Her husband died suddenly from small pox twenty years ago in Southern California, whither he had gone to look after gold mining interests. This wa a great sorrow to her as it was impossible to bring his remains home for five years.

Mr. and Mrs. Will L. Thompson, and Miss Mame Simms, of this city, attended the funeral at Akron Wednesday, and returned home Thursday evening. It will be remembered that her son Bryon married an East Liverpool girl—Miss Lettie Smith, a grand-daughter of Hon. Josiah Thompson, and a daughter of D. J. Smith. It was Mrs. Robinson's special delight and custom to always remember at Xmas times her East Liverpool "nieces" and friends of those old pioneer days. She will be sadly mourned in all the homes where she visited and was ever so welcome.
