ARTHUR C. GORSUCH, son of JACOB and KATHERINE GORSUCH, was born near Chesterville, Morrow county, Ohio, June 27, 1852, and died in Navarre, O., July 26, 1901, aged 49 years and 29 days.
His mother died when he was a babe six months old. He then came with his father to the farm now owned by Mr. Given where he grew to manhood.
He was married to MISS. MARTHA LEONARD in 1874. One son, LEONARD J., was born to them, who growing to manhood enlisted in the U. S. Volunteer Signal Corps, and died in Manila, Philipine Islands, August 25, 1898, his mother having preceded him March 6, 1889.
In 1889 MR. GORSUCH was united in marriage with MRS. SARAH A. WARNER, who with three step-children and two sons, four sisters and three brothers remain to mourn his departure.
MR. GORSUCH was engaged in newspaper work in Indiana and Ohio. He was editor of newspapers at Defiance, Hamler, Bradner, Bettsville, Woodville and Navarre.
He had been in Navarre for less than a year, and during the most of that time was sick, suffering greatly. His death was caused by an abscess of the appendix, which resulted in tuberculosis.
He won the respect of a large circle of friends, and died in saving faith in Jesus.
He was a member of the L. O. O. F. at Genoa, Ohio.
A short funeral service was held at the residence Saturday morning, at 9 a.m., by Rev. Weaver, of the Reformed church of Navarre.
The funeral services were held at the Franklin M. E. church Sunday July 28, conducted by the Rev. Fred K. Gamble and the body was laid to rest in Franklin cemetery.
