Obituary: Xenia Gazette, November 17, 1886, Xenia, Ohio -

A Fatal Fall - Isaac Blocher's Sudden Death - He Falls From a Hay-Mow And Dies From a Fractured Skull Shortly After

Mr. Isaac Blocher, a well-known stonemason, of Bowersville, met with a fatal accident last evening near Alpha. He was engaged in doing some stonework for the county on a bridge about 3 miles north of Alpha, and was boarding at the house of Mr. Ed Williamson. About 7 o'clock he had gone to the hay mow to throw down some hay for his horse, which he had in Mr. Williamson's stable, and it is thought slipped and fell from the mow down into the stable where he was found, in a few minutes afterwards, by his son, who was there also engaged at work on the bridge. He was in an unconscious condition when found from a fractured skull and other injuries and died in about two hours. Dr. McClellan was summoned but the case was past hope when he arrived. Mr. Blocher was a stonemason whose home is at Bowersville, where he lived with a second wife and seven children, having grown children by his first wife and one son living in Springfield. He owned small property at Bowersville. He served three years in the army. He was paid off and discharged at the end of that time, but was immediately captured by the "rebs" and was a prisoner with them for eleven months. He was not-able-bodied and received a small pension. The funeral will take place at the church at Bowersville tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock."
