Oliver S. Applegate died early Saturday morning, Dec. 17, 1910, aged 66 years. He was born in Carryall Township, Dec. 17, 1844. He was the son of Oliver S. Sr. and Sarah D. (Graves) Applegate, who settled in Paulding County in 1831. He was married in Antwerp to Emily Cole(daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Cole) February 6, 1868. To this union 9 children were born - 5 living and 4 dead. Mr. Applegate as a boy grew up along the banks of the Maumee River until the Civil War, when the call of 300,000 men was made by President Lincoln. Although but 18 years of age he enlisted in Co. I of the 100th Regt. O. V. I., on the 9th day of August, 1862. Discharged from the service , June 20, 1865. He participated in battles at Rocky Face Ridge, Reseca, Entony Creek, Atlanta, Ga, Columbus, Franklin and Nashville, Tenn. Also Raleigh and Wilmington, N. C. The record shows that Comrade Applegate was always doing his duty at the front on the firing line, which is about the best thing you can say for a soldier. He was converted and joined the Presbyterian Church, Nov 11, 1906. Since that time he was anxious to lead a christian life. During the fifteen months of his last sickness he was glad to have friends and brethren sing and pray with him. He not only wished to get closer touch with Christ, but anxious to do something for others. He endured the most acute mental and physical suffering all along the months of his sickness and tribulations. Rev. 7-14 says: "These are they which came out of great tribulation and have washed them white in the blood of the Lamb". He leaves to morn their loss, his beloved wife, who has been so courageous and faithful in caring for him during his long sickness, one son Ray; daughters, Ona Dysinger, Ora Reeb, Eluda Stiver, and Verda Murphy; also fifteen grandchildren. He was a member of the G. A. R. , also of Masons, the G. A. R. having charge of the funeral, which was conducted Monday from the Presbterian Church by Rev. Bardelmier.
