Miss Mabel Ware has been chosen organist of the M. E. Sunday School.

The main feature of interest in our town, last week, was the Commencement exercises of the High School, which were held at Odd Fellows Hall, on last Friday evening, and we but join in the common expression that it was the most perfect and entertaining commencement that has ever been held in this place. The program was simple, but as well arranged as it probably could have been. There were thirteen graduates who received diplomas, ten regulars, and three Normals. They were George D. Palm, Isaac Adair, Walter Baird, John Lawson, Misses Glenna Floyd, Bertha Inman, Mabel Ware, Ina Cruil, Ollie White, Lillie Johns, Jennie Klug, Blanche Bilby, and Maggie Baird. John Lawson, Misses Bilby and Baird, being the Normal graduates.
If it were not for encroaching upon your space, we would like to particularize on each one of the class, but we find it would make too lengthy a report. The exercises of the ten regular graduates were excellent and well delivered, and at the conclusion Dr. A Southworth presented each one with a diploma, with appropriate remarks.

The M.E. Sunday School had rather a pleasant entertainment on Christmas night, which consisted of recitations, dialogues, music, etc., after which quite a treat was given the Scholars, in the way of candles, nuts, apples, etc. Miss Mabel Ware as organist, received two presents on this occasion-one from Mr. F. Ward on behalf of the Choir, the other through the pastor, on behalf of the Church, for her faithful attendance as organist.

Baseball Notes

At Richmond, Ind., Park Schwartzel, who signed with the Kansas City club, was yesterday united in marriage with Miss Mabel Ware, a school-teacher, of Dublin. Schwartzel says he has saved $7,000 out of his baseball earnings since he has been playing.

***( attached to the right with the photos, is the Wayne County, Indiana Marriage Record, which shows who are actually Mabel's parents, as per Mabel herself, not the incorrect info in her biography typed 50 years later, which said that her mother had died while she was young, and it did not list her father; or mention her deceased son.)
---

Backtracking; Mabel's father, William Ware, before she was conceived, had just come back home to his father's farm in Indiana. He had just from been mustered-out of the Indiana 7th Cavalry in 1866, and was now 18 years of age. ( He had been captured at age 15, and imprisoned in 1864 at Andersonville Prison, and then at Florence Stockade.)

On the 1870 census, Mabel is shown listed as the daughter of her mother-Sarah Doran, and she has the name of Mabel 'Doran'-3 years old. Mother and daughter are living on William's father's farm. Mabel's maternal, widowed grandmother, had married William's widower father.

Mabel's father and mother, were young and had not married; her father left home sometime before Mabel was three years of age; very likely before she was born. That is most likely why she had the last name of 'Doran' instead of 'Ware' as a young child. Mabel was left with her mother, and the both of them in Mabel's grandparents household-farm; (William's father and step-mother).
Later, Mabel's mother married and left Mabel in the great hands of Mabel's grandparents. Both parents now had left to start their separate lives.

Mabel continued to live with her grandparents, Isaac Newton Ware and Mary Ann Huddleston/Ware, on the farm.
Isaac died when Mabel was about 11 years old, and Mary Ann continued to raise Mabel in her household. Mary Ann even listed Mabel "Ware" as her own daughter, on the census in 1880.

Mabel had then listed her maiden name as 'Ware' for the rest of her life; very possibly because of her grandparents, Isaac Newton Ware and Mary Ann Ware, and because of tradition; her father was 'Ware'.

Mary Ann and Isaac seemed to have performed an excellent job finishing the raising of Mabel; as a young teenager, Mabel played organ for the Methodist Episcopal Sunday School and also for the church; she graduated high school, was a school teacher, then married Park Swartzel at the Methodist Episcopal Church in Richmond. Mabel started her own business, and later became the treasurer for the Christian organization, 'Kings Daughters and Sons'-Southern California chapter. She was an active participant in her church up until her death. She then left the bulk of her estate to her church; which had been the Christian Science Church for many years since her move to Los Angeles County.

PITCHER PARK SWARTZEL.
Park B. Swartzel, the famous pitcher and all round player of the Western association, occupies a very creditable position among Americas baseball players. Swartzel, whose home is at Dublin, Ind., was born twenty six years ago, stands 5 feet 10 inches high and tips the beam at 156 pounds. He first began playing as a professional in 1886, with the Leavenworth (Kan.) Soldiers for whom he rendered yeoman service.
In the following year he signed with the Lincolns of the Western association, in which season he was well up among the leaders in pitching and general fielding. In 1888 he was secured by the management of the Kansas City Blues, His all round work was as usual of a very high order, and he was induced to wear a Kansas city uniform during the seasons of 1889 and 1890. His averages for the last named season were as follows: Batting. . 273, Pitching: .219. Last year he was also a member of the Kansas city team and surpassed all his previous records; but the unfortunate split in the Western association brought his exceptionally brilliant season to an abrupt conclusion.

Pitcher Swartzell's Arm Gone.

Special to the Indianapolis Journal.
RICHMOND, Ind., May 7.--Park Swartzell has returned to his home at Cambridge City, having been released from the Grand Rapids ball team. He had made fair progress in the practice games and felt assured that he was rounding up to his former high standard and could prove as effective in the box as in times-past, but his arm gave out entirely, and his physician pronounced the trouble paralysis and advised him never to attempt to play again or it might be necessary to have his arm amputated.

*********************************************************
There is a movement on foot for a baseball game to be played soon between the old-time Cambridge City Grays and the present youngsters, the Red Onions. Of the Grays that could probably be brought into the game are Park Swartzel and Benjy Drischel-pitchers; Frank Larkey, Wesley Cornell and Douglas Hollowell-basemen; John Toms-catcher; W.H. Ingerman, George Drischel and Hez. Barnett-fielders. This would be an interesting and attractive game, and the Tribune sanctions it.

(from June24orJuly1,1897-The Cambridge City Tribune)
*********************************************************
The anticipated ball game between the old veterans of the Cambridge City Grays of 1884-5 and club of good players known as the Red Onions is now history. Over 500 enthusiastic persons and friends greeted the old veterans, who in full uniform, trotted onto the diamond. Their lineup was: Park Swartzel, pitcher; John Toms, catcher; Wesley Cornell, 1st base; Frank Lackey, 2nd base; Doug Hollowell, 3rd base; Benjy. Drischel, shortstop; Hezekiah Barnett, leftfield; J.R. Gray, centerfield; W.H. Ingerman, rightfield. Stombaugh struck out nine of the old Grays, but the Red Onions committed eight errors, and the vets only one. The article on the games said, "the youngsters were simply outbatted, outfielded and outgeneraled at every stage of the game, which was called at the end of the seventh inning because of rain." The score: Grays 8, Red Onions 1.

Mabel, Park, and Cedric, had moved to Orange, Orange County, California, about June, July, of 1900, due to Park being involved in a large scandal brewing in Cambridge City, Indiana. Seems that Park had left for California, and Mabel soon followed with Cedric.)

DRAGGED TO DEATH BY A FRIGHTENED HORSE

Boy Tries to Arrange Harness and Misses His Footing on the Shaft.
Orange, Oct. 6.
"While P.B. Swartzel and his eight-year-old son Cedric were in the Santiago Canyon to-day the boy got entangled in the harness and was dragged to death. Cedric got out upon the shaft to unloosen the check rein and slipped. His foot caught and he was dragged ten miles. The body was terribly mutilated."

SMALL BOY'S AWFUL DEATH
---
Caught in horse's harness and Body Dragged Ten Miles.
---
ORANGE, Oct 6--(From the Times' Correspondent.)
Cedric Swartzel, aged 8 years, only child of P. B. Swartzel of this city, met death in a horrible manner this afternoon while out driving with his father. They had gone to Santiago canyon and were about to return when Mr. Swartzel stepped out upon the shafts of the buggy to fasten the check rein. As soon as he touched the horse the animal began to kick and plunge and Swartzel sprang to the ground, carrying the reins with him. He tried to hold the horse, but finding that the animal would get away from him he shouted to his son to jump out.

The little fellow sprang from the seat, and in falling his foot became caught either in the singletree or in some portion of the harness, and he fell to the ground with his foot still fast. This added to the fright of the horse, and although Mr. Swartzel clung to the reins the animal began running away. The father hung on to the lines as long as possible and was dragged quite a distance. All the time the little boy's body and head were being dragged along the road. Swartzel was compelled to release his hold, and the horse, free of the burden, dashed down the road.

Almost crazed, the father followed on foot, but was, of course, unable to overtake the runaway. The horse started to run at the first road crossing near the County Park, and stopped only when it reached the gate which crosses the road at the entrance to Mme. Modjeska's ranch, a distance of fully ten miles. There the men who had followed on horseback and in wagons found the horse, and there they also found the terribly mangled body of the boy with his foot still fast in the harness. The head had been pounded almost off the shoulders and the flesh on the body had been torn into shreds.

The father was almost crazed with grief, and had to be restrained by those who accompanied him. The body was brought to the family home in this city tonight.

INQUEST ON DEATH OF CEDRIC SWARTZEL
(Special Correspondence.)
ORANGE, Oct. 7.--On account of the absence of the coroner and deputy coroner, Justice of the Peace Charles Chandler this morning held an inquest over the remains of little Cedric Swartzel, who met a tragic death yesterday. The jurors were: Samuel Annor, foreman: J. Purcell Boring, A.T. Smith, G.W. Moore, Roy W. Huff, Charles P. Peelor, James J. Gray and O.K. Brownell. The jury brought in a verdict that the boy came to his death by being caught by the foot between the shaft and the harness with his head downward and was dragged to death.
P.B. Swartzel, the boy's father, is quite ill as a result of the mental and physical strain. The funeral was held this afternoon and was attended by Cedric's classmates in a body. Floral offerings were numerous and very beautiful.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
**newspaper articles show that Park had still been a starting pitcher for a very-small local team in Missouri, just a couple weeks or so before this terrible accident.

Apparently, during the baseball season, he was still pitching for small Midwestern teams, and then returning to Orange, CA after the season ended in September, then returning to his other occupation as a hardware-store's salesman-clerk.
He then took his son out for a Sunday, father-and-son, horse and buggy ride in the country, when the above death occurred.
Is it possible that Cedric had accompanied his father during the baseball season in the mid-west, since school was out for the summer?

...Not only is the sentiment of the affected district practically unanimous for the proposition, but business men of Los Angeles are working for annexation. One of these is P.B. Swartzel of the Harper & Reynolds company.
"I formerly had a home in the Hollywood district, but sold it," said Mr. Swartzel last evening. "I now am preparing to build again. My wife and myself favor East Hollywood, where I own property, but are holding plans in abeyance to observe the outcome of the election. If it carries we will build on Finley avenue. It is our desire to live in a city, under municipal government, benefits and protection. If the election does not carry we will build in the Wilshire district of Los Angeles. I do not pretend that this decision is one which will sway votes, but The Herald has asked for my sentiments and I have given them in as practiced a manner as possible."
There is little doubt that Mr. Swartzel's argument will carry weight. He is known in the Hollywood section as a progressive citizen and business man who has the interest and welfare of his city always at heart. ...

(below, is the obituary from the 'National Road Traveler', Oct. 30, '1941'. Cambridge City, Wayne Co,Indiana)

Mrs. Mabel Swartzel Passes Away In California.
Harry Demaree of Dublin has received word of the recent death of Mrs. Mabel Swartzel, widow of Park Swartzel, which occurred at Los Angeles, Calif., recently.

She was found by a friend dead in bed. Mrs. Swartzel in her youthful days was a resident of Dublin, her maiden name being Ware. Her mother died while she was a small child and Mrs. Swartzel was raised by Mrs. Josephine Needham of Dublin.

She was married to Park B. Swartzel, who at that time was at the height of his career as a National League baseball pitcher and who one season practically won the pennant for the Kansas City Blues. Mr. Swartzel was the only Dublin baseball player to reach the big leagues.

After Mr. Swartzel's retirement from baseball he and his wife became residents of Cambridge City where he was in the hardware business for several years. Later they removed to California where he became a man of considerable wealth through real estate transactions on the west coast.

Mr. Swartzel died last winter at his home in Los Angeles. Mrs. Swartzel for many years has been prominent in the Christian Science church and was well known on the west coast as a reader and practitioner for that denomination.

Mrs. Swartzel's remains were cremated and placed in a crypt alongside the ashes of her husband in Forest Lawn, Los Angeles. Surviving are a sister-in-law, Mrs. Margaret Binkley, Huntington Park, Calif.; a cousin, formerly Nettie Needham, Chico, Calif., and two cousins, Raymond and Russell Protsman, both of Dublin.

With the exception of small bequests to Mrs. Binkley and the former Miss Needham, Mrs. Swartzel left her entire fortune to the Christian Science church.

*researching more on the first name of Mabel's husband, Park.
It appears that he is listed as "Americus Swartzel"-age 4 on the 1870 Federal Census living in his parents household with his siblings.
On the 1880 Census his first name is listed as "Park". He, or his parents, have changed his name.
