MAUS, Matthias

DEATH OF A GOOD MAN
Mr. Matthias Maus Passes Away After a Brief Illness

Mr. Matthias Maus, who was paralyzed Tuesday afternoon last, as has been stated in this paper, died last evening about 8 o'clock at his residence on Baltimore avenue in the 61st year of his age. At no time since Mr. Maus' sudden illness was there any hope of his recovery, and his death was not unexpected, nevertheless it was a great shock to his friends and the community.  No man in the city of Cumberland attended to his own affairs better than the deceased, and being of a kind and pleasant disposition he made friends among all classes of people, and on all sides was heard expressions of grief when his death was announced. The deceased was an honest and an industrious man, and in his death the community has lost one of its best citizens.  He was born at Elsée?, near Strauseburg?, Germany, in 1835, and when two and a half years old came to this country with his parents, who located in Cincinnati.  In 1864 he came to this city where he married his second and surviving wife.  He then returned to Cincinnati where he remained until 1872, when he came to Cumberland and engaged in the beer business with Mr. W. A. Buckholtz[sic] until 1882, when he embarked in the mineral water business. He was a member of the Third Independent Ohio Cavalry and remained with this company three years.
A wife and two daughters, Mrs. Wm. Buckholtz[sic] and Mrs. Harry Radigan, all of this city, survive him. The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock from SS Peter and Paul's church.  Interment in cemetery connected with that church.

Mr. May, employed as an auto mechanic, was a member of the Brethren Church. A native of Flintstone, Mr. May was born April 2, 1917, and was a son of the late Edward and Nina (Teeter) May.

MAYFIELD, Daniel Ray

Star City man found dead
A Star City glassworker was found dead at his Normandy Street home at 3:45 p.m. yesterday by a member of his family. According to acting coroner William Bowers, the body of 25-year-old Daniel Ray Mayfield was taken to University Hospital for further examination to determine the cause of death. Bowers said that if the cause of death can’t be determined by the examination, then an autopsy would have to be ordered. The cause of death could not be determined at the scene, he said. Bowers said he was called to act as coroner when neither of the two county coroners could be reached. That was part of the agreement when he gave up the post of coroner, Bowers said.
