An 1893 Suicide Shocker

Just a sad story from the Coshocton newspaper, The Democratic Standard, published 28 July 1893:

A shocking suicide occurred at Port Washington, O., last Tuesday afternoon. In a fit of despondency Mrs. Ireland hung herself with a rope, one end of which she fastened to a chandelier in the room where the rash act was committed. She was dead when discovered. She had been parted from her husband for about three years, since which time she has made her home with an uncle, Mr. Wm. Kline, at Port Washington. She leaves a young daughter.

Not related; no further information.
