George W. Lodwick Passes Away At Daughter's Home-Ill With Pneumonia

George W. Lodwick, sheriff of Mahoning Co. from 1881-1885 and resident in Youngstown for more than 50 years, died at 7:30 a.m. today of pneumonia at the home of his daughter, Mrs. W. H. Patton, 501 Belmont Ave. Numbered among the oldest settlers in the city, he was very widely known and was for years in the blacksmithing business. He was also a Civil War Veteran and a member of Tod Post, G.A.R. No. 29.

Born at Austintown township Feb. 15,1835, Mr. Lodwick was the son of the late John and Lydia Ripple-Lodwick. He attended the county schools and later learned the blacksmith trade at which he worked until his retirement about 15 years ago. He was married in 1858 to Elizabeth Overlander, who preceded him in death. Three children survive: Wallace S. and Fred Lodwick, at home, and Mrs. W. H. Patton, city. A sister, Mrs. Jane Allen survives at Lordstown, also three grand and nine great-grand children. Since early manhood, Mr. Lodwick had manifested an interest in county and state political movements and took an active part in every campaign. He was elected sheriff in 1881 and reelected two years later. He earned the respect and friendly appreciation of all with whom he came in contact and justly won the high regard of his admirers and friends through his excellent performance of duty. He was prominent in the activities of Tod Post No. 29 and also took a keen interest in the affairs of the M. E. Church being a staunch member of the body at Ohltown.

Funeral services will be conducted at the residence of Mrs. Patton, at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, with Rev. T. H. Jones officiating. Burial will be made in Oak Hill Cemetery.
