(HAROLD) DAVID HANLON, 70, of Sherrodsville, Ohio, died Thursday, July 9, 2009, in his home with his family by his side.
A son of the late Harold C. and Kathryn N. (Martin) Hanlon, David, as he was known by family and friends, was born at New Matamoras, Ohio, on June 14, 1939.
David was a 1957 graduate of Midvale High School. Out of high school, he entered into the United States Navy where he served a period of time aboard the USS Walker and also served multiple tours of duty in Vietnam. Following more than twelve years of service with the Navy, he completed the final eight years of his career with the National Guard.
David was a long-time employee of Superior Meats at Massillon, Ohio, and the Pepsi-Cola Company at New Philadelphia. He was an avid NASCAR fan and enjoyed spending time working on his flower gardens that surrounded his home. He also loved bird watching and sitting outside in his gazebo during the summer months.
He was a wonderful husband and father to his blended family that includes his wife, Jane Murphy-Hanlon and children, Michelle (Brad) Moore of Tuscarawas, Jason Malterer of New Philadelphia, Kellie Murphy of New York, NY, and Scott (Pam) Murphy of Columbus, Ohio.

In Back: My mother Mildred Howard Rausch, MY Grandma Ida Smith Howard, my older brother Jack Rausch, my Aunt Evelyn Howard Moore holding Tom Krocker, and my older sister Jeanette Rausch Nicks. (Joe Krocker’s childhood home can be seen in the background.) We would have walked over Goshen Hill from our home to get to Grandma’s house because during the war my Dad lived/worked in Canton and we wouldn’t had a car.

MILDRED L. RAUSCH died on April 2, 2002. She was born in Goshen on October 8, 1908 to Ida (Smith) and Emmett Howard. Mildred was married to Adrien Rausch who preceeded her in death. Her siblings were Kathryn Howard Krocker, Evelyn Howard Moore, and Donald Howard. Funeral services were performed by Rev. Michael Foran and Rev. Allen Bergmann. She was buried at the Sharon Moravian Church Cemetery.
EVELYN MARIE MOORE- Age 95, passed away on October 18, 2009. Moore was born in Goshen, Ohio on August 22, 1914, to Emmett and Ida (Smith) Howard. Ida was the first custodian at the Goshen School, which opened in 1923. Evelyn was raised in a home on the current David Rd. and remembers when the stone wall was built around the Zeisberger Cemetery. Water was borrowed from the family’s well to mix the concrete, she explained. Evelyn loved the Cleveland Indians and was the sister-in-law of baseball great Whitey Moore. She had attended several World Series games with her husband Lester. She was preceeded in death by Lester, two sisters, Kathryn Krocker and Mildred Rausch, both of Goshen and one brother, Donald Howard.
Tom and Anna Moore Family — Our family consisted of three children, Carol who graduated in 1964, Jo Ann (me) graduated in 1965 and our younger sister, Betty who graduated in I believe 1972. Our family lived in Goshen three different times. The first time was in the early 1950′s where we lived in back the lane with the Davis family, and the Ebert family to name a few. I’m not sure the lane had a name. The second time we lived in Goshen was on Goshen Hill next door to the Paul Maurer family. The third time we lived in Goshen we lived down the street from what was Ann’s Tavern. On this street also was the Lindsey family, the Anderson family, Reynolds, the Hobart family (Jack and Jim) and the owners of the Hucks Gas Station on the corner.
My Dad worked at Goshen Sewer Pipe for many years and did some of my uncles. I can still remember the glow of the kilns when they were burning.
Oh the memories of living in Goshen where friends could easily go out to play and be gone for hours and parents didn’t have to worry like they do today. Life was fun, simple and when I look back those years were the best.
Goshen School and the teachers we had were expected to do so much for the kids. Not only did Mrs. Larkin teach 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade all in one room, rotating from one class to another, she played on the playground during lunch time. She has been a person that I have admired all of my life.
There were times we would walk from Goshen School down to Hucks store to buy pencils for school. Can you imagine being allowed to leave the school grounds to go to the store?
