OHIO VETERAN IS DEAD

J.C. STRAUB PASSES AWAY AT HOOD RIVER RESIDENCE

Dead Man Leaves Record of Eventful Career Took Part in John Brown's Raid and Later in Civil War

HOOD RIVER, Or., Nov. 12 (Special.) Another Civil War veteran, Joe C. Straub, answered the last call here last night.  Mr. Straub, who was 79 years of age, passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Cora Orians, with whom he had been residing since 1910.

Joe C. Straub led an eventful career.  He was a native of Ohio, having been born at Waldo July 1, 1837.  In 1856 he went to Kansas with a party of men from Marion County to lend assistance to the Kansas free-state men.  He was with John Brown of Ossawatamie, where the abolitionist was repulsed by border ruffians.  The Brown party returned to Ossawatamie after two weeks to find but two buildings standing, the remainder having been burned.  Mr. Straub was one of the followers of James Lane and General Harley.

At the outbreak of the Civil War Mr. Straub enlisted in the Fourth Ohio Volunteers under his brother, Captain William S. Straub. The Fourth Ohio formed a portion of the "Gibraltar" brigade of General Shields. After Mr. Straub was mustered out he re-enlisted in the Fifth Ohio.

For 12 years before coming to Hood River, Mr. Straub was employed in a clerical capacity at the Old Soldiers' Home at Dayton, O.

In addition to his daughter, Mrs. Orians, the veteran leaves four other surviving children Mrs. A.W. Bishop, of Hood River, Mrs. Nettie Van Osten, of Lyle, Wash.; Charles Straub and Henry Straub, of Marion, O.

The funeral services were held Friday by Canby Post, G.A.R., of which Mr. Straub was a member.
