Richland County,

Bargaheiser, Levi -- DIED. On Saturday morning, December 26, 1868, Mr. LEVI BARGAHEISER, in the 78th. year of his age. Mr. B. immigrated to Fairfield county, Ohio in Oct., 1803, from Rockingham County, Va. Returning to his native place when he became twenty-one years old. He soon after again removed to Ohio; this time to Richland County, about the year 1815. He lived with Mr. Ruffner at the time the Indians massacred the Ruffner and Seymour families, escaping by not being at home at the time. He purchased the farm on which he resided at his death, in 1819, when this vicinity was yet a howling wilderness, and lived to see it "bloom and blossom as the rose". Thus one after another of our aged pioneers are dropping into their graves, leaving us only to cherish their memories, and recollect their hardships by the evidence of their labors surrounding us. His funeral took place Sunday afternoon. Services were held in the Lutheran church, by Rev. D. Summers. A large number of relatives and friends were in attendance.
