        Eells died Nov 6, 1962 of a heart attack [ IM Dec 1962 p 32 ]
        Rev. Roger Eells Episcopal Church, Ironton, OH.
        Internet:
        Was ordained Nov 16, 1958 at Christ Episcopal Church in
        Ironton, Ohio, which had been founded on May 15, 1854, when
        Ironton was only five years old.
        after he began serving the congregation in June 1958.
        Eells last service was Nov 1, 1962
        church number is 1 740 532 3528

        On Mar 8, 2001 I called Mrs. Thomas Belling 1 740 532 2917
        Saramarie has passed; dau Gayla said she took
        dad's ashes and mom's ashes  to cemetery in Columbus;        

 


        1958 came to town to serve the church; in Apr 1960 Mrs.
        Belling had son, the Eells took care of her (ten month baby)

        at about 3:35 pm on Mar 8, 2001 I called Gayla Hammonds and
        she agreed to answer some questions for me upon a return
        call. She was the Eell's only child. I'll compose some
        questions and get in touch with her.
        Gayla May 3, 1942
        Sep 7, 1909 Roger died Nov 6, 1962 age 53
        Aug 26,1908 Saramarie         1988 age 80 days after she turned 80
        Lisbon, Ohio buried Mt. Carmel cemetery or Rogers, OH
        on the Elliott lot at base of the big Elliott granite stones
        flat marker cremated and mixed together when Mom died and
        reinturred.
        In later years Roger drank raw eggs which his daughter thinks
        did not contribute to his well being. He also had a fruit cellar
        which he converted to a place to reload his own bullets.

Joe, I believe that this was Dorian's third win. He went on to win the following three  years, bringing his total to six 

wins.

Hi Liam, i believe he died from complications arising from hemochromatosis, a condition that causes the body to store too much iron affecting organs such as heart, liver and pancreas. Often affects men in their 60s and can usually be managed by monthly blood letting. However several other issues can develop from it and my good friend had to have a liver transplant due to damage caused by it.

Peter.

September 22, Ronald Man born. Ron is, although his modesty would likely bristle at the label, an expert in weightlifting statistics, and in fact is the official statistician for weightlifting for his home, New Zealand. Happy 78th today, Ron!
