Wood County, Ohio, Oct 18, 1886. Jasper WHITNEY was a native of New York state, and at one time resided in Thompson, O., where he was one of the early settlers. He was at one time taken suddenly ill and after a short illness died. The neighbors rendered all possible as- sistance and the doctor informed the family that he was dead. A coffin was made and brought to the house and preparations made for the burial. Mrs. WHITNEY could not persuade herself that her husband was dead and the funeral was post- poned. A consultation of physicians was held and no trace of life could be dis- covered. The doctors, neighbors, and all tried to prevail on her to have the funeral but she was unmoved and insisted that her husband was not dead. Her neighbors thought she was insane, but she cared little for their opinions. She kept her sleepless nights by the side of her husband applying restoratives and on the forenoon of the ninth day discovered signs of consciousness and in short time succeeded in bring- ing him to life. He soon recovered good health. He heard, while lying in a trance everything that was said near him, and when he recovered sufficiently said many ugly things of those who wished to bury him alive. Mrs. WHITNEY's father died several years after and the coffin was used for his interment. He d. Oct 15, 1888; res. Gibsonburg, Ohio. 6415. i. ERASTUS F., b. Aug 31, 1836; m.
