Walter Clinton Burkhart

Walter Clinton Burkhart

PARENTS: Charles Burkhart and Catherine Louise Lang

OCCUPATION: Doctor of Veterinary Medicine and college professor at the University of Georgia

MILITARY: He served as first lieutenant in the Veterinary Corps in World War II.

Dr. Walter Clinton Burkhart, 104, died Wednesday, Nov. 6, 1996 [Athens, Clarke Co., GA].

A native of Woodsfield, Ohio [14 May 1892, Monroe Co., OH], Dr. Burkhart was a son of the late Charles Burkhart and Catherine Lang Burkhart.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Pearl Pennington Burkhart.

Dr. Burkhart received his D.V.M. degree in 1916 from the School of Veterinary Medicine, Ohio State University, where he was member of Alpha Psi social fraternity. He came to Athens {GA] in 1916 as an instructor in bacteriology at the University of Georgia and also was director of the State Hog Cholera Virus and Serum Laboratory.

In 1933, the veterinary program was discontinued and Dr. Burkhart joined the College of Arts and Sciences, where he taught bacteriology and was head of the bacteriology department. His basic bacteriology class was a required class for students in five different colleges. In 1957, he joined the College of Veterinary Medicine and taught until his retirement in 1960 at the age of 67.

During his 44 years of teaching at the university he influenced many students who remember him today not only as an exceptional teacher but also as one whose high standards required that they perform at their best.

Some of Dr. Burkhart's major contributions to science have been in the fields of hog cholera virus & serum production, bacterial examination of milk, control of infectious abortion in cattle, streptococci mastitis, protozoal disease of domestic animals, bacterial vaccines and white diarrhea of chickens.

Dr. Burkhart was nationally known and an outstanding man in the field of science. He was selected for "Who's Who, American Men of Science."

He was a fellow in the American Association of Science for the Advancement of Science and was a member of the Society of American Bacteriologists.

He was a member of the Honorary Society of Phi Kappa Phi & Phi Zeta. He was president of the South Eastern Branch of the Society of American Bacteriologists. He was a member of the Mount Vernon Lodge 22 F. and A.M. and completed 75 years in the Masonic fraternity.

He served as first lieutenant in the Veterinary Corps in World War II.

The University of Georgia and the citizens of this state are indeed fortunate that a man of this caliber devoted his entire life to the instruction of students and the advancement of science.

Graveside services will be in Oconee Hill Cemetery [Athens, Clarke Co., GA].

Death Celebration

The death celebration is extremely important. It permits those who outlive you to gather together to give thanks for your life. It allows for memories, shared happy times together. This final hour, when you are no longer on earth, is a way for those who love you to deal with mortality and say "farewell."

PARENTS: Thomas Clegg and Margaret Reed

OBITUARY: Mrs. Rachel Henthorn (nee Clegg) of Cameron, Ohio was born October 23, 1824 [Monroe Co., OH] and died April 15, 1820 [Monroe Co., OH], being at the time of her death 95 years, 5 months, and 22 days old.

On November 5th, 1843 she was united in marriage with Jesse B. Henthorn, who preceded her to the Great Beyond February 5, 1908.

To this union were born 7 children, 3 of whom, Clifford and Thomas of the home and Mrs. George Pryor of Bellaire, Ohio, preceded her to the grave several years ago.  She leaves to mourn her departure, two sons, David of Cleveland, Ohio and John of Cambridge, Idaho, and two daughters, Mrs. Cecilia Jones and Mrs. Sarah Keller, both of Cameron, Ohio, also twenty-four grandchildren and twenty-eight great grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.

She obeyed the gospel at the age of twenty-one, thereby becoming a member of the Church of Christ, of which she was ever a constant and devout worker, ever-faithful to Him that doeth all things well.

She was always found at her post of duty as long as health would permit, her mind being active and alert until her last illness.

She was ever ready to minister to the sick and distressed, and her presence will be sadly missed in the little village in which she lived, where she was addressed by almost everyone with the enduring term of "Grandma" Henthorn.

The funeral services were conducted by Rev. D. Wayne Harkins of Woodsfield, [OH] on Friday, April 16, and interment was made in the Old Cemetery by the side of her husband, there to await the resurrection morn when they that are in their graves shall hear the voice of the Son of god and come forth.

Problem: Was the date of birth, 24 Oct 1824 or 29 Oct 1829? If she died on 15 Apr 1920 at the age of 95 years, 5 months, 22 days her calculated birth date is 24 Oct 1824.

Durkee for the full text of the deed.

CENSUS: 18?0, in Gallia Co., OH, Clay Twp.

CENSUS: 1880, in Barton Co,, KS, Great Bend


OBITUARY: Was Nearly 97 Years Old - Franklin Baldwin Who Died Tuesday Was Born in Ohio in 1819
Franklin Baldwin, the oldest citizen in Wellsville, [Franklin Co., KS] and a resident of the town since 1882, died at his home at 2:15 Tuesday morning, [4 Jan 1916] following a general breaking down.  Mr. Baldwin had been in fairly good health until two weeks ago, and during the past summer and fall had been able to do quite a little work about his home.  Until two weeks ago he had been able to shave himself regularly.

He was born in Clarington, Ohio, February 9, 1819.  He moved to Macon county, Missouri, after the way, and later to Shelby county, where he made his home on a farm.  In the early seventies he went to Great Bend, Kans. where he bought railroad land and attempted to farm.  The drou[g]th discouraged him and he returned to Missouri, locating at Pleasant Hill. In 1882 he move to Wellsville, [KS].

Mr. Baldwin was married to Mary Jane Newhouse, in October 1843.  Mrs. Baldwin died in Wellsville July 6, 1885.  In 1897 he was married to Martha Jane Ryan whose death occurred in November 1914.  For a number of months before his death he had made his home with his daughter, Mrs. Carrie Inman, who came here to care for her father.

The deceased had a wagon maker's shop on the east side of Main street for many years, until age compelled him to retire from business.  He took an active interest in political matters and in all his life missed but one chance to vote at a presidential election, that of four years ago, when his physical abilities had failed him so that it was inconvenient for him to get about.

He had been a member of the Baptist church for a long time, in Missouri and in Wellsville, and until quite recently was a regular attendant at church services.

OBITUARY: Dorothy Rine Brown Died; Many Accomplishments One of the area's most highly accomplished women, Mrs. Dorothy Elizabeth Rine Brown, 81, author, genealogist, church worker and widow of the late Reverend Durward Belmont Brown, suffered a stroke Tuesday October 8, [1985] while leading a discussion on "Communication" with the United Methodist Women of the Warwood Church.  She was taken to Wheeling hospital where she died Thursday.

She was a person of industry and surprisingly broad range of interests.  Her daughter Mary commented, 'As I go thru her things I keep being amazed at all the things she knew about.  People who are always learning thru their lives, are happy people.'

She was born in Moundsville, [WV] Sept. 16, 1904, daughter of the late Foster L. and Katherine Jane Schultz Rine.  The parents had thirteen children, eleven of whom grew to adulthood; and they were a prominent and colorful family. Foster Sr. was a teacher, and served in the West Virginia Legislature.

She earned a WV Elementary Teacher certificate when she was 18, taught in elementary schools in Marshall county for four years, and was a principal another year.  In that time she was improving herself with extension courses from West Liberty.

Then in 1927 she left the schools, went to Elliott School of Commerce in Wheeling, where she was given recognition as first student in the school's history to achieve 100 percent in all tests in "The Theory and Art of Shorthand."  This led to a position as secretary of Fourth Street Methodist church in Wheeling (Chapline street was once named '4th street' hence the church name); and she met and married Rev. Brown who at the time was pastor of the Fulton church.

Then followed a third of a century career as they served a total of ten Methodist charges around this state: Wesley Foundation at West Virginia University, Gassaway, Philippi, St. Paul's in Grafton, Central in Center Wheeling, Shinnston, Sabra in Morgantown (near to, but not in, Sabraton), Webster Springs, Riverside-Pisgah (Morgantown area), and Elizabeth.

Upon retirement in 1961 they settled in Warwood, but that didn't mean the end of activity.  They participated in the affairs of Warwood church.  He continued an active life and supplied various church pulpits in the area, including Benwood, where she is listed as having been teacher of the Men's Adult Bible class for a couple of years.  She was a Certified Lay Speaker, and historian of the Warwood church.

She had interests in sewing and astronomy, and taught astronomy for merit badge work to various Girl and Boy Scout troops.  She is perhaps best known now, as genealogist and author of the 'Bonar Family Genealogy.'  She had just completed a Brown Family genealogy a few days before her death.

In addition to all this, and rearing three children, there are many items to be gleaned from a Methodist who's who book, such as: Member Civil Air Patrol, Webster Springs 1954-55; member of garden clubs in various towns they resided in; American Iris Society, vice president of Short Creek Homemakers in Ohio county, Huguenot Society of America, on board of Scotts Run Settlement House near Morgantown, secretary Women's Christian Temperance Union in Grafton, teacher Young Adult Sunday School class in Shinnston, Girls counselor Epworth League Institute at Buckhannon, etc., etc.

She was preceded in death by her husband in 1983, and by four brothers: John, Foster, Lowell and Paul Rine.

Surviving are her children: Dr. Foster Lloyd Brown of Oneonta, NY, Mrs. Mary Jane Madjlessi of Oakland, Ca and David Wilson Rine Brown of Hampstead, MD; two brothers, Edison C. Rine of Fort Myers, Fl and Calvin Reed Rine of Glendale, [WV]; four sisters, Olive Wilson of Beaver, PA, Mary Beulah Rine of Marietta, GA, Lillian K. Glower of Pullman, WA and Marjorie L. Percival of Carmel by the Sea, CA.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 20 in Warwood United Methodist church.
