He was a farmer until he was nineteen years of age then served as an apprentice to
a carpenter in Rome, for two years and in November 1860, he began working his
trade in the employ of the Big Four railroad. On the fifteen of April 1861 when

Company H of the Sixty-fourth United States Infantry from Ohio. After the battle
of Shiloh, he was detained as quartermaster on staff duty, and for a time under
General Garfield who was commanding the brigade. In July 1864 he was promoted
to the rank of captain but declined the honor. He participated in the
battles of Chickamauga, Chattanooga, ant the Atlantic campaign, and when

was attached to General Thomas’s division and while on detach duty in this
department he had some varied and interesting experiences.

Elizabeth Seitner, and to this union three children were born,
Silas William, , Ruth S, wife of H. K Houpt of Shelby and Elizabeth Judith
the wife of John W. Mykrantz of Ashland. These are living to mourn the loss

of cheer and comfort when they were needed. He served the Big Four railroad
for many years, first as a carpenter, next as superintendent of the construction
department and the last fifteen years as an inspector. He retired from active
service February 10, 1909 at the age of 70. At the time of his retirement he
received many letters and other testimonials of his loyal and faithful and efficient
service while in the employ of this company. Rev. B.F. Morris of Shenandoah
chaplain of Mr. Marvin’s regiment assisted Rev. Quick pastor of the Disciples
church preached the funeral sermon. It was a difficult task he touched the
hearts of his sufferers for there was not a dry eye among those of his comrades
and friends who had come to pay the last tribute of respect to this loyal soldier,
loving husband, devoted father and faithful friend.
Miss Sylvia Keener read Mr. Marvin’s favorite song, "When The Roll Is Called
Up Yonder, I’ll Be There." that was his evening prayer. There were many beautiful

In Memoriam by his life long friend E.S. Close
Tip S. Marvin
Enlisted on first call April 18,1861 for 3 months, served 4 months and 11 days
in the Ohio Volunteer Militia U.S. Army. Re-enlisted on second October 12, 1861
for 3 years.
November 30, 1861 elected and commissioned first Lieutenant and assigned
to Company H. 64th Regiment Ohio Volunteer Regiment Infantry U.S. Army served
with that company up to April 21, 1862 when he was detailed on the battlefield of
Shiloh Tenn., as quartermaster of the 64th O.V.I. U.S.A. and served in that as brigade
quartermaster to the end of the war. On July 14, 1864 he received a captains commission
but did not accept. Honorably mustered out on April 13, 1865 four days after
Robert E. Lee had surrendered the army of North Va. to General U.S. Grant.
Such is the brief military record of Comrade T.S. Marvin as shown at Washington D.C.
Friday, surrounded by his family, his gray haired comrades of the G.A.R. and
sympathetic friends and neighbors the last farewell words were spoken over his remains
and another brave and gallant soldier was carried to his last resting place.
No bugle call to arms can reach him there. No clamor of battle can raise him from
his profound and dreamless slumber. It was fitting that his comrade the old
Chaplain of the Sherman Brigade the B.F. Morris should speak the farewell words.
His theme was the resurrection of Christ. He envisioned the gloam and mist that
enveloped the human soul in regard to the future life until the Star of Bethlehem
arose and God gave his own son to unveil the mysteries of the unknown beyond, and
by his death upon the cross redeemed the world from sin and by his resurrection from
the grave secured to all eternal life. It was a thrilling sermon and he closed
with a glowing tribute to his dead Comrade Tip S. Marvin.

To the dear wife and children he said:
When you go up an down this land of the free and see Old Glory flying from every
flag pole, console yourself with the glorious thought: my husband, my father
placed it there. He and his brave comrades by their loyalty and devotion to the Union
by giving up their lives to the cause of liberty, preserved the union of the states and
made it possible for the dear old stars and stripes to float all over this broad land.
Maine to Florida, and from the Atlantic to the Golden gate of the Pacific.
"Let this thought comfort you in your sad bereavement."
We leave our dear brother and comrade in the hands of a just and merciful God.
Should not the judge of all the earth do right??
In closing Mrs. Keener read the poem ending----
"When The Roll Is Called Up Yonder Ill Be There."

In Memorium
Cyrus C. MOORE, was born at Chester, Meigs county, Ohio, March 14th 1858.
His father, Dr. Merdical MOORE was the oldest and most successful practitioner in
Meigs county. At the age of 17 Cyrus began the study of medicine under the
efficient direction of his father, but in spite of his ambition, and natural
ability for his chosen profession, he unfortunately shot off his arm, which
terminated his ambition in that direction.
April 27, 1877, at the age of 19, he was married to Victoria HALL. After his marriage,
he still having a desire to better equip himself for life's work, attended Carlton college
and secured a literasy and business education.
In 1879 he moved from Meigs into Vinton county, Ohio, and located on a farm
near McArthur; but on account of having but one hand, he was seriously handicapped
in the farming vocation. While living on the farm he made numerous friends; and in
expression of the high esteem in which he was held, was elected to the office of
Recorder of Vinton County, which office, he served admirably and well, for six years.
After serving his county as Recorder, he entered into the hotel business in McArthur.
The "Hotel McVay" with C. C. MOORE as proprietor, was one of the best in southern Ohio.
Hospitality was one of the paramount characteristics of "Hotel VeVay" and the traveling
public would discommode itself to patronize C.C. MOORE. In 1898 he moved to Shelby, O.,
his late home and was first employed as weigh master at the Shelby steel tube company.
This responsible position he held for seven years, giving it his honest and faithful service,
to the perfect satisfaction of employers and employees.
His ability, integrity, and willingness to serve his fellowmen guaranteed his election to
the office of City Clerk, in 1905, and his re-election 1907, with a majority of 656 votes.
He made both campaigns upon merit alone, without resorting to the use of money with
which to influence voters. Mr. MOORE's pilgrimage, obviously has been one of
usefulness, although one attended by adverse conditions.
Last September, while in the prim of life and just upon the threshhold of a well
paying position, he was taken ill of tubercular phthisis, which ended his patent,
hopeful suffering and useful career March 27, 1908.

who were born in the community of early pioneer parents. The following sketch
was read at the funeral Monday by pastor, Rev. Heibert, of the Lutheran church,
of which the deceased has been a faithful member for nearly fifty years past.
Nearly a century ago (lacking only 7 years) there came to Richland county, O.,
from the state of Virginia, among the early pioneers, two, whose names
were Thomas and John PETTIT, father and grandfather of the subject of
this sketch. This was in the year 1816. They entered and settled upon the
land now occupied largely by the town of Shiloh. A cabin was erected on the
ground now occupied by the Methodist church and parsonage by John PETTIT.
In this humble cabin was born our deceased brother, Thomas Merit PETTIT,
on Feb. 21 1829. In this cabin he spent his early childhood days, receiving
such care and education as the pioneer home and community afforded.
Not satisfied, however, with these meager advantages at home, Thomas
was sent to Springfield, where he was enrolled as a student in
Wittenberg College, among the first of that new institution.
At the age of 26, in the year 1855, he was united in happy wedlock to
Miss Mary Ann MATTISON. They were permitted to live to celebrate their
50th anniversary in 1905. To this union were born five sons, as follows:
Lorenzo(PETTIT), near Plymouth;
William(PETTIT), Dayton;
Charles, Deceased;
Elroy (PETTIT), Shelby;
And Joseph (PETTIT), Cleveland.
These four living sons were with the father at times during his last illness
and all with the wife and mother and granddaughter, Miss Bertha, were
at his bedside when the angel of death called his spirit hence Saturday morning,
aged 79 years, 10 months and 18 days.
The life of Brother Thomas PETTIT was one of peace and good will to his
fellowman. It can no doubt be said that no man ever lived in Shiloh who
has a few enemies. Brother PETTIT was a life-long Christian, a member in
all these years of Mt. Hope Lutheran church. He was a soldier in the Civil War
(line can not read)
and honored member of Speigle Post G. A. R., for many years.
He was a man of high characterized his conduct and his own estimate of
his personal merits, by all who knew him he was regarded as a man of pure
and noble principles, strong in his convictions, of right and duty and faithful to all
his obligations. He served his God with Christian fidelity and his generation with
an unselfish spirit. He lived to bless the world and to be missed when he departed.
He will be missed from the home as an affectionate husband and father.
He will be missed in his church as a regular attendant, an appreciative and attentive heared.
He will be missed in the community as a sympathetic and helpful neighbor,
a faithful friend, an honest, industrious citizen.
