Mahlon Horace Day, whose wife, Margaret (Wilson) Day, is buried
at Salem, is buried in the Chariton Cemetery with his parents,
H.H. and Rebecca A. Day.
"M.H. Day, one of Lucas county's well known citizens, died at his
home in Lincoln township on Wednesday evening, March 23, 1904,
after an illness of about four months with stomach and heart trouble.
His sickness had not been considered of a serious nature and death
was entirely unexpected and came as a great shock to his relatives
and friends. Funeral services conducted by Rev. B.F. Miller of the
M.E. church will be held at the family residence in Lincoln township
tomorrow (Friday) afternoon at two o'clock, after which interment
will take place in the Chariton cemetery.
"Mahlon Horace Day, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.H. Day, was born in
Belmont, Belmont county, Ohio, on September 2, 1853. When quite
small he came with his parents to this county where he has since
resided. Harry Day, as he was familiarly known, was a kind hearted,
industrious man and had scores of warm friends who will learn of
his death with deep regret. He leaves a wife who was formerly Miss
Margaret Wilson, a mother, Mrs. H.H. Day, who at this time is
seriously ill, and two sisters, Mrs. Jessie Peake and Mrs. Minnie D.
McCollough. These sorrowing ones have the sympathy of the
entire community in their great grief."
