Wm. Price Found Dead At Home
William B. Price, 63, of 1036 Market St, was found dead in his home on Saturday night shortly after 8:00 o'clock. Deputy Coroner Roy Leverentz, of Ashland, said Mr. Price committed suicide by hanging himself from a door frame in a bedroom. His body was found by a son-in-law, Charles Neiswinter, who visited at the Price home on Saturday night.
Mr. Price was one of Ashland's most widely known men. Some years ago he served in Borough Council as a representative of the fourth ward.
He had been in ill health for the past several months and was very despondent because of his illness.
A native of Ashland, he was a son of Edward and Katie, nee Lesher, Price of Fourth and Chestnut sts. He spent his entire life in this community and was employed at the mines until about two years ago.
He was a member of Zion's Reformed Church of Ashland.
Surviving in addition to his parents are his wife, the former Elizabeth Powell and six children, John, local police officer; Mrs. Charles Neiswinter and Mrs. Joseph Ahrensfield, of Ashland; Mrs. Oscar Skocik, Edward, and William, at home.
Also surviving are three sisters, Mrs. Mame Steinhilber, of Ashland; Mrs. Thomas Lloyd and Mrs. James Barrett, of Elizabeth, NJ, and four grandchildren.
Mr. Price will be buried with private funeral services from the Otto Funeral Home at 200 Centre St on Wednesday afternoon at 2:00 o'clock. Rev. Melvin Walper, pastor of Zion's Reformed Church will officiate and interment will be in Ft. Springs Cemetery (Christ Church Cemetery)
