   Benjamin F. Post passed to his eternal reward Sunday afternoon, Dec. 26, 1920, at the home of his son, John H. Post, in this city. He was born March 16, 1838, in New York state. Sept. 18, 1866 he was married to Ruhama M. Louthan at Vaughnsville, Ohio. Nine children came to gladden this union, six boys and three girls.

He was a veteran of the Civil war, having enlisted in the 118th regiment O.V.I., and served his country from the beginning to the close of the war. Funeral services were held at the home, Thursday at two o'clock, Rev. E. T. Smith officiating, using as a text, "There the wicked cease from troubling, there the weary are at rest." The body was taken Friday to Paulding, Ohio, and laid to rest by the side of his wife.
