Death: Oct. 13, 1923
Franklin County

Owned The Alexander-Ankrum Smithy, 63 East Main Street (lot 41), New Concord, OH from 1905 until 1923. His estate lists that he owned 2 horses, 2 cows, and 1/2 interest in 160 acres of real estate.

The Alexander-Ankrum Smithy

In 1896 Andrew Alexander, a blacksmith, purchased a portion of lot 41 and thereafter erected a blacksmith shop. He operated at this stand until his death in 1905. Charlie Ankrum, a working blacksmith, purchased the shop at an estate sale in 1905. Ankrum ran a smithy until 1923. The signs on the shop read KEMP'S BALSAM: THE BEST COUGH CURE, KREMER WAGONS, LANE'S MEDICINE, CURES CONSTIPATION.

Was admitted to the Columbus State Hospital in May of 1923.

Columbus Oh..

Oct 26-The body of Charles Ankrum, 50, patient at the Columbus State hospital, committed from Cambridge, was found today hanging from a tree in the hospital grounds. Ankrum had been missing since October 13.  Searchers had passed the tree where the body was found many times but had been unable to see it because of heavy foliage.  The falling of autumn leaves, however, revealed the corpse to a hospital patient who was walking through the grounds this afternoon.
