William Driscoll, son of William and Emmeline Driscoll, deceased, was born in Clarke County Ohio, January 28, 1840, and came with his parents to Delaware County in his infancy, where he resided until his death, September 25, 1900, aged 60 years 7 months 27 days.

Rachel Driscoll, daughter of William and Sarah Kiger, deceased and wife of William Driscoll was born in Delaware County, Indiana April 13 1842, died September 25, 1900, aged 58 years 5 months 12 days.

Brother and Sister Driscoll were united in marriage May 20, 1861. Brother Driscoll is survived by two brothers and four sisters. His father, mother, two brothers and two sisters having preceded him to the Spirit Land.  Sister Driscoll leaves four brothers and five sisters, and each leave many friends and other relatives to mourn their loss.

Some thirty  years ago, February 9 1869 Brother and Sister Driscoll were happily converted during a series of meetings held in a school house by Rev. J Johnston near Bethel Church. since which time they have been active and efficient members of the ME church.  They have always responded liberally with their means in support of the church and have wielded a great influence in building  up the membership in the churches where they have been associated, each being possessed richly of the Holy Ghost religion and more than ordinary evangelistic ability.  The class at Bethel (?where) brother and sister Driscoll held their membership at the time of (?their) death  feel and realize that they have sustained a great loss.  They have left a vacancy that scarcely can be filled.  They will be among the first to be missed at the class meetings and preaching services, which they seldom ever missed when able to be present.  The happy testimonies of these dear ones so freighted with a ripe religious experience, can never be erased from the mind and memories of their coworkers. Death came in a sudden and shocking manner and has robbed us of these jewels, but death leaves no sting nor hath the grave achieved a victory.  They have left the happy evidence that they were watching, waiting and ready to go at the dear Lord's command and that is is well with them.

Their lives and characters were model ones and truly worth of emulat'on.  They were possessors of all the characteristics essential to good citizenship.  The hearts that are now lifeless in the tenements of clay were once the seat of unbounded friendship; their now sightless eyes greeted us with a radiant and becoming intelligence; their voices now still in death bade'us a welcome and a greeting in which there was no false pretense.

Ah it is sad to give up these loved ones, but God will wipe away the tears which we are not now able to control and conceal and some sweet day our sorrows will be turned to joy and then we will understand the lives Brother and sister Driscoll  They will bid us a glad welcome in the glory world, where sorrows, farewells and partings never come.

"Farewell, brother, sister, farewell;
We are only waiting till the shadows
Are a little longer grown.
Only waiting till the glimmer
Of the last day's beam is flown.
Only waiting till the angels
Open wide the mystic grate--
There within, where saints immortal reign,
We shall meet again,
"Thus star by star declines
Till all are passed away;
As morning high and higher shines
To pure and perfect day;>
Nor sink those stars in empty night,
But hide themselves in heaven's own light."

Funeral services were held at the Bethel Church September 27. Presiding Elder, C.U. Wade officiating. Interment was made at the Rees Cemetery. The funeral was among the largest ever held in Delaware County

DUDELSTON, Isaiah (& Oscar Wilson)

The Muncie Morning Star Saturday, December 23,1922



DUDDLESTON-WILSON  Double funeral services for Isaiah Duddleston and Oscar Wilson who were instantly killed Wednesday morning when the automobile in which they were riding was struck by a traction car at the Bartlett crossing north of Albany, will be conducted at 10 o'clock this morning at the Albany Methodist Church with the Rev. Mr Palmer in charge. Burial will be made in the Black Cemetery.


Isaiah Duddleston Meets Death With Oscar Wilson, His Son-in-law.


Isaiah Duddleston, 83, leading business man of Albany and until recently president of the Albany State Bank was instantly killed and his son-in-law, Oscar Wilson, 51, was injured so seriously that he died within a few minutes, when the automobile in which they were riding was struck by a north-bound Union Traction car at the Eaton pike crossing, one and one half miles north of Albany, at 8:40 o'clock yesterday morning. Mr. Duddleston was dead when passengers and employees on the traction car reached him and Mr. Wilson died soon after being placed on the car to be taken to Albany. Although both men suffered many broken bones and other injuries, a crushed skull was the injury which caused Mr. Duddleston's instant death.

A crushed hip was probably the fatal injury received by the younger man, according to Coroner J.F. Downing, who was called to Albany to investigate the fatality. The car was in charge of Motorman W.L. Simmons and Conductor T. Hitchcock, both of whom were questioned by the coroner.


The crossing view is somewhat obstructed by a depression in the pike to the west of the crossing. There is a view of the track until one is within about 600 feet of the tracks, but from there until within about fifty feet of the track, the view is prevented by the depression in the road. The view of vehicles on the pike is similarly obstructed. Norval T. Wingate, farmer and deputy road supervisor, who lives near the scene of the accident, was the only eye-witness of the tragedy. Mr. Wingate, who was waiting at the crossing for a south bound car, stepped into the little shelter house at the crossing as the traction car approached and as the automobile, struck by the traction car, crashed into the house, demolishing one side of it.


Mr. Wingate, when questioned by Coroner Downing, stated that when he saw the automobile approaching the track, he waved through the window in the side of the shelter house, to attract the attention of the men in the auto, which was a touring car with the side curtains in place, but they failed to see his warning gestures. he estimated that the automobile was being driven at a rate of twenty-five or thirty miles per hour.

The traction car was traveling at about thirty or forty miles an hour, the trainmen said. In his statement to the coroner, Motorman Simmons stated that when he saw Mr. Wingate at the crossing, he shut off the current, but, when Mr. Wingate stepped back in the shelter house applied the current again, and the traction car "picked up" its usual speed. The usual warning whistle was sounded as the car approached the crossing according to both Mr. Wingate and Motorman Simmons. The latter testified that he did not see the automobile until the latter was about forty feet and the traction car about one hundred feet from the crossing. The automobile was struck about opposite the steering wheel and the front part of it was torn into small pieces, Mr. Wilson was knocked fifty feet from the point of the collision.


Mr. Duddleston was one of the most prominent residents of Delaware County. He was one of the organizers of the Albany State Bank, was president of the bank for fifteen years, until recently, when he retired from most of his business activities. Previous to his residence in Albany, he conducted a general store in Granville, north of Muncie.

He was a veteran of the Cival War having served with the Eighty-Fourth Indiana regiment of volunteers. At one time he taught school for a brief period and later served as trustee of Niles township. Since retiring from business, Mr. Duddleston has made his home with his son-in-law and daughter, Mr. and Mrs. Wilson, on their farm near Albany. Mr. Wilson was a prominent farmer and had always been active in agricultural circles in the county. He is survived by the widow, Mrs. Nettie Wilson; four daughters, Mrs. Harvey Osenbaugh and Mrs.John Lewis, of this county, and Larie and Florence Wilson, who lived with the parents; five sons; Harry Wilson who lives in the West; Alfred and Paul Wilson, of Muncie, and Donald and Estel Wilson, of who resided with the parents; two brothers, S.H. Wilson, of Muncie and Aaron C. Wilson, of Albany; and three sisters, Mrs. Sarah Wingate of north of Muncie, Mrs. Lillie A. Dwyer, of Dunkirk, and Mrs. Harry McKee, of Muncie. Bodies Taken To Albany. Mr. Duddleston's only immediate surviving relative is the daughter, Mrs. Wilson. However, he is survived by three nephews, J.Cooper Props, of Muncie and Ralph and Harry Duddleston, of Eaton, and two nieces, Mrs. William Addington of Muncie, and Mrs. Jasper Lewellen, of Eaton. Following the coroner's investigation, the bodies were taken to the Moorehead undertaking establishment in Albany and prepared for burial and were later removed to the Wilson home. Funeral arrangements have not been made. Mrs. Wilson the wife and daughter of the victims of the fatality was prostrated following the tragedy and was under the care of a physician last night.

Makes Five Futile Attempts to Suicide Before Succeeding.

Ralph Dudelston, 48, a retired farmer, doggedly pursued his efforts to commit suicide early yesterday morning at the home of his sister, Mrs. Robert Love, 203 Ward Avenue, and finally, after five futile attempts, succeeded. He was found by police officers, who had been summoned by Mrs. Love and her husband, hanging by an apron string tied to a water pipe in the bathroom. The motive for the act, officers said , was a result of worry over separation from his wife which took place about eight months ago.

He was also to appear as a witness in an automobile accident case which capacity he bitterly detested. Face Bloody When the police officers entered the bathroom through a window, the door having been locked from the inside, they found the man standing upright with his back against a water heater, his face covered with blood, and the strong belt of a new apron cut deep into his neck supporting the weight of his body. This was the result of Dudelston's last attempt to end his life. Previously he had placed the muzzle of a revolver directly in the middle of his forehead and was forced to pull the trigger four times before any of the shells would fire. Then the bullet, of the soft lead type, tore through the skin, ripping it in many directions, crashed into the skull and flattened out to about the size of a half-dollar and thickness of a nickel. However, the force of impact did not fracture the skull.

Services Tomorrow. Dudelston's first attempt to hang himself failed when the towel he was using broke. Officers are uncertain whether this action preceeded or followed the shooting. Surviving are the sisters, Mrs. Josie Lewellen of Eaton, Mrs. Savannah Ellis of this city, Mrs. Mamie Love of this city, and brothers, Charles and George both of Eaton. The body was taken to the home of his sister, Mrs. J.M. Lewellen in Eaton yesterday. The funeral services will be held at 3:30 o'clock tomorrow afternoon in the Eaton Christian Church with the Rev. Mr. Powell, of the Eaton M.E. Church, officiating. Burial will be made in the Union Cemetery near Eaton.
