210 Arthur was a soil scientist with the Bureau of Soils, U.S. Department of Agriculture. If you google "Soil Survey - Strahorn" you will find twenty or so books he wrote about local soil conditions in the West, especially with regard to their potential for irrigation. I knew him as a retiree living on his property in Porterville, which was full of orange trees. He would send us a case of oranges every year. He was a kind and thoughtful man, and I am his namesake. - Gary Arthur Zentmyer

215 Aurora Beacon News, Aurora IL: Earl J. Zentmyer, of Montgomery, Illinois, peacefully departed from this world on December 13, 2003. He had been confined to his home and cared for by his children, since experiencing a heart attack in mid-October. Until that time, Earl had been exceptionally active and self sufficient for his 103 years of age. Earl was born April 10, 1900 to Clara and Oliver Zentmyer in Aurora. Earl's childhood, youth and early adulthood was spent living and working in Aurora. In 1922, he moved to Oswego, purchased business property, and opened the first filling station and garage in the community. He became a skilled mechanic, working on Model T Fords. Marjorie Friebele became his bride in 1923. She and Earl enjoyed 76 years of marriage and parenthood, together. Marge died when she was 96 years old, in 2000. Earl and Marge worked close together as they acquired and further developed their business in Oswego. Their loyalty, support and commitment to each other was strong. As Oswego grew, the business expansion for the Zentmyer's included a Standard Oil Service Station and a Ford Motor Company dealership. Mr. Zentmyer became an active participant in numerous aspects of the community. He served a term as Mayor. Through his leadership and efforts, the Oswego Township Library was formed. The Oswego Community Bank is also a result of Earl's leadership and organization. Earl was a Lions Club member and a member of the Oswego Masonic Lodge. He attended and graduated from the University of Wisconsin Banking Institute. He served on numerous boards in the Oswego community. For many years, he was a Trustee of The Church of The Good Shepherd, United Methodist Earl wrote poetry, many short stories and one published book. He was recently writing his autobiography to be titled, "My First One Hundred Years." He played guitar and harmonica. Enjoying the family summer home in Wisconsin, especially fishing on Blue Lake, will be long cherished memories for children and grandchildren.  ZENTMYER, Earl J. (I2693)

217 Benjamin Franklin Zentmyer (Frank) and his brother William went from Vermillion Illinois to Kentucky by oxen, pulling a saw mill across the frozen Ohio River in the winter of 1883-1884. They settled near Manitou, Kentucky. Bill and his family lived in Madisonville and their younger brother Thomas Jefferson Zentmyer worked on a railroad near St Louis and fell off the train and was killed. Don't think he ever married.

After Elena died, Frank sold the sawmill and went West. He traveled and worked as a sawyer and a machinist, and worked in Colorado, Hawaii, California, and Washington. Uncle Bill and Aunt Kasie looked after the children who were not married. They had a very hard time.

220 Bernhard was the Patriarch of the Zentmeyer/ Zentmyer/ Santmyer/ Santmyers families in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and later into Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Nebraska.

There is a Bernhard Nicholas Santmyer listed in FamilySearch records and elsewhere as a member of this family, but he never actually existed, he is an unfortunate synthesis of several records by an unidentified compiler. I am working diligently with FamilySearch to remove this fabrication from the record.

Bernhard is also not related to Henricus Zentmaˇr of Brilon, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany, an actual person, who had been incorrectly linked to this family in good faith by Dorothy Zentmyer Jones

"The exact date at which any individual came here to reside cannot be ascertained. Among the papers of Mr. Cushing, there is a 'list of the names of such persons as came out of the town of Hingham, and towns adjacent, in the County of Norfolk, in the Kingdom of England, into New England, and settled in Hingham.' From this list we are led to believe there were inhabitants here as early as 1633, and among them Ralph Smith, Nicholas Jacob with his family, Thomas Lincoln, weaver, Edmund Hobart and his wife, from Hingham, and Thomas Hobart with his family, from Windham, in Norfolk, England. During the same year Theophilus Cushing, Edmund Hobart, senior, Joshua Hobart, and Henry Gibbs, all of Hingham, England, came to this country. Cushing lived some years at Mr. Haines's farm, and subsequently removed to Hingham. The others settled at Charlestown, and in 1635 removed to this place. In 1634 there were other settlers here, and among them Thomas Chubbuck; Bare Cove was assessed in that year. To 1635, at the May court, Joseph Andrews was sworn as constable of the place. There was a considerable increase of the number of Settlers, and in that year grants of land were made to upwards of fifty individuals, of which a record is preserved. It was in June of that year that Rev. Peter Hobart arrived at Charlestown, and soon after settled in this place." - from History of Hingham published 1893, pages 201-209 (Thomas Lincoln's younger brother Samuel Lincoln, also a weaver, who came to Hingham in 1737, was the ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln -Ed)

236 Carlos Enrique De Cillo was born Charles Elmore Cosby, in South English, Keokuk, Iowa on 22 Feb 1859, married Margaret Rebecca Reynolds 1 Mar 1880 and had two children with her, and then "died at sea" in 1900, according to his grandson Richard Sheridan Cosby, writing in 1947. If that story was told to his family, Cosby likely faked his own death. Then as Carlos Enrique De Cillo, he married Cora Nayan Hobart, then Tina Champion, and then remarried his first wife Margaret, or perhaps they never divorced.

Ruth 'Chita' O'Connor wrote in June 1976 in the Orange County Genealogical Society Quarterly that her father was "Charles Elmore Cosby (changed to Charles E. De Cillo ca. 1901)," and her California Death Certificate from 1996 reads, "Mother's Maiden Name: Decillo, Father's Surname: Cosby."

Funeral of Clara Zentmire
Ben Zentmire arrived here Friday afternoon at 3:30 with the body of his sister, Miss Clara, who died at Long Beach, Calif, September 21st. Claud and wife were down from Fort Scott and the sister, Mrs. Flora Lynch was here from El Paso, Texas. Funeral services were conducted at (unreadable) o'clock at the Presbyterian church by Rev. E.L. Torrence and she was laid to rest beside her father and mother in the Cherokee cemetery.
Clara Elizabeth Zentmire was born in Cherokee September 27, 1879. She graduated from our schools in 1894, which at that time included the high school. She then taught in our city schools for several years, going to Texas where she taught three years. In 1917 she went to Arizona where she continued her work as a teacher. Last year she was a member of the faculty of the Northern Arizona Normal School at Flagstaff. While teaching in a summer session at that place she was taken sick and went to the hospital at Lordsburg, New Mexico. Later she went to Long Beach, California where she died September 21, 1921.
She leaves two brothers, Claud of Fort Scott, and Ben of Lordsburg, N.M. and one sister, Mrs. Flora Lynch of El Paso, Texas, besides numerour other relatives. She was a consistent Christian, having been a member of the Presbyterian church for many years.
We have been acquainted with the Zentmire family all our lives and know Miss Clara to be a fine woman who devoted her life to the profession of teaching. She took a great interest in it, and at all times was looking for the opportunity of making herself more proficient in her chosen line. It was not known even by her own folks that she was in such bad health as it afterwards proved to be in. She wrote one of her happy sunshine letters to the Sentinel after she got to Long Beach telling us the news of the Cherokee colony, and we did not even think of her being in such poor health.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the brothers and sister. It seems to us as though they were closer together than most children because their parents had been dead so long, and Clara being to older was looked to for advice and sympathy.

244 Cherokee Sentinel, Sept. 4, 1903, page 1:
A Sudden Death
On Monday morning word was passed around that David Zentmire, one of our most respected citizens, who has lived among us for twenty-five years, had passed away on Sunday night at about ten o'clock. Knowing that he had been on the streets on Sunday evening when he went to consult with Dr. Smith about his wife who was down sick, many could hardly believe it true, but later information proved the rumor correct. He had gone home, ate his supper, and laid down on the couch. His daughter, Clara, later suggested that he retire, and she would care for the mother. he acted on her suggestion but after he laid down his wife noticed he breathed very hard and irregularly. She spoke to him and got no answer, and when she turned his head to the light she saw that he was dying. The daughter was called and she in turn called the neighbors. The doctor was called but he got there in time to only se him breathe his last. He had been active and cheerful all day and had not complained in the least.

A universal sigh of sympathy and regret was evidenced by the entire community as the news spread. Mr. Zentmire had, for all these years, been prominent in business circles, and everybody, both young and old, got a pleasant word from him whenever they met him. It seemed that he was a friend to everybody and that everybody was his friend.

He was born in Warren county, Ohio, September 27, 1840, hence he was nearly 63 years old. About the beginning of the war he went to Mason County, Illinois and enlisted soon after in Company K 85 Illinois Infantry, and served until the end of the war.

February 3, 1875, he was married to Miss Emma Carl, and they moved at once to Cherokee and built the house in which he died. His wife and four children survive him.

He had been a Mason ever since he was a young man, and was a prominent member of the G.A.R. under whose auspices he was buried. For several years he has been with the Cherokee Commercial Company.

Funeral services were held at the home Tuesday morning and nearly the whole town and surrounding community were present, the business houses being closed form ten to one o'clock. The services were held by Rev. W.T. Freeland, after which his comrades silently marched to the cemetery and laid him to rest.

For five years he was principal of the public schools of Curwensville and New Washington. In 1887 he became assistant superintendent of the Britton Coal and Coke Company of Philadelphia, in West Virginia, which position he held for a year and a half. Returning to Clearfield county, he located at Madera, and for four years was employed in surveying, mining engineering, and as a coal contractor.

This position he held for a year and then took charge of a grist mill belonging to the estate. Mr. Zentmyer's politics are Republican. For thirteen years he has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and takes a prominent part in all church work.
