Martzolff, Clement Luther

Prof. Clement Luther Martzolff, dean of the department of history of the College of Arts of Ohio University, Athens, and secretary of the University Alumni Association, died at his home there Saturday evening at 9 o'clock, after a prolonged illness from Bright's Disease. Prof. Martzolff was born in Perry County, Nov. 12, 1869. Among the schools at which he had studied is Capital University, Columbus. He received his degree of bachelor of pedagogy at Ohio University in 1907, and that of master of pedagogy in 1910. He was awarded the degree of doctor of literature by Wittenburg University in 1920, and was also at one time a student at Harvard University. Well known as a historian, Prof. Martzolff taught school for many years and was the author of numerous textbooks on history and pedagogy. He had contributed considerable to the literature of history and was a recognized authority on the subject in America. Prof. Martzolff had suffered from Bright's Disease for the past five years. One day during March of this year he collapsed in his classroom and was taken to his home, where he was bedfast for some time. During the month of June he undertook to aid in the campaign for the Ohio University Memorial Fund, which was at that time inaugurated. This activity was against the advice of his physician, but his enthusiasm for the progress of the university induced him to undertake the work as secretary of the alumni association. Prof. C. L. Martzolff was the superintendent of the New Lexington public schools for a number of years, and won fame and distinction. He was also a member of the board of school examiners of this county, and the teachers as well as the people of the county learned of his death with profound regret. Prof. Martzolff was one of the sons of Perry County who by his talents and industry in search of knowledge, made a national reputation for himself and alma mater. His death is sincerely mourned by all who knew him, but his noble traits of character will long live in the memories of all. The funeral services were held at the Lutheran church in Athens at 1 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and the body taken to Logan for burial. May he rest in peace.

Miller, Aaron Darlington

Aaron Darlington Miller, the son of John Miller and wife, Sarah E., was born Sept. 28. 1871 near Thornville, Ohio, and departed this life April 5, 1902, aged 30 years, 6 months and 7 days. He was married to Cora E. From, Nov. 24, 1898. To this union was born one child, which died in its infancy. There are left to mourn his untimely death; his aged parents, his devoted wife; two brothers, and two sisters, besides other relatives and friends. One of these brothers is the Rev. J. Wesley Miller of Applecreek, O. The deceased was baptized in his infancy by the Rev. C. W. Hoyman, and became a member of the Thornville Reformed Church in 1888, under the pastorate of Rev. S. W. Seeman. In 1895 he transferred his membership to the Zion Church of which he has since remained a faithful member. He served this congregation for two years a deacon, and on Easter Sunday was elected Supt. of the Sunday School. In his death, the church has lost a faithful member, the family an affectionate husband, son and brother, and the community a valuable citizen. To him, death, however; was a gain. With his expiring breath, he said that the waters of the river were becoming shallow, and he soon would be on the other side. In his Savior he made a triumphant entry into the New Jerusalem. Funeral services were held from the Zion Reformed Church, Tuesday April 8, 1902.
