Farewell to 2018

We’ve had a wonderful year at the NB
Library! It’s been a good year of welcoming
new staff members – Heather and Tammy
in the Children’s Area and our new high
school pages, Abbi and Kennedy. And
saying hello to new babies in the family –
Holly’s Lakelyn in March and Courtney’s
Sophia in July! Between all the coming and
goings through the year, we have managed
to build a great team! Our Summer and
Fall offerings were quite diverse and strong!
Our Library does Rock! We look forward to
continuing this trend into 2019! On March
10th we will celebrate the 100th Anniversary
of the North Baltimore Public Library! We
are planning quite a few special events to
coincide with this special date! Look for all
of the “hoopla” to be rolled out in the New
Year!

In the meantime, a few things to start the celebration –
We have a new copier/printer! This one will
print in full color! Please ask for assistance!
A color page is 25 cents, black & white is
still 15 cents.

On December 1st, we are raising our DVD
check outs to a maximum of 15 per day.

In January, the number of digital
magazines on Flipster will increase to over
100 offerings! Haven’t tried it yet? You’ll
want to soon! Find it on our website!

A Look Back in Time: NORTH BALTIMORE IN WORLD WAR I

A North Baltimore man was the first Wood County serviceman to die in combat in World War I……

NORTH BALTIMORE IN WORLD WAR I

Vernon Wymer was the first Wood County serviceman to die in combat in World War I.  He was born in Galatea in 1900 to Charles and Ella Wymer and was living in North Baltimore when the United States entered the war against Imperial Germany.

Vernon Wymer, WW I

Vernon enlisted as a private in Company H, 2nd Infantry of the Ohio National Guard in July 1917 at Bowling Green, Ohio.

He trained with them until he was sent as a replacement to the American Expeditionary Force in France in early 1918.  He was then assigned to the 2nd United States Infantry Division as a rifleman with Company K, 23rd Infantry Regiment.

During the Second Battle of Marne, Private Wymer was killed on July 2, 1918 while his unit was attacking Germany army units holding the village of Vaux.

At the request of his family, Private Wymer’s body was returned to the United States for burial in 1921.  Several thousand people attended his funeral in North Baltimore.  He is buried in Weaver Cemetery, Bloom Township, Wood County beside his brother Gerald, who was killed in World War II.

Four other North Baltimore area residents also lost their lives in World War I either through disease or accident.  They are:

Charles B. Lawrence, Seaman 2nd Class, US Navy:  Lawrence died of Spanish influenza at the Naval Hospital of the Great Lakes on September 23, 1918 at age 25 years.  Surviving him were his parents Bassett and Nellie Lawrence.  Charles had attended Notre Dame University for 2 years prior to enlisting.  He is buried in Hough Cemetery.

John W. Weaver, Private, US Army.  Weaver died at Camp Forrest, Georgia on October 9, 1918 at age 27 years.  Surviving him were his parents Ichabod and Nancy Weaver.  He is buried in Maplewood Cemetery.

Howard W. Wrede, Yeoman 2nd Class, US Navy.   Wrede died of pneumonia caused by the Spanish influenza at the U. S. Naval Hospital in Norfolk, VA on October 13, 1918 at age 22 years.  Surviving him were his parents Albert and Minnie Wrede.  He is buried in Maplewood Cemetery.

Morris H. Neiman, 2nd Lieutenant, US Army.  Neiman died of pneumonia caused by the Spanish influenza at Camp Sherman (Chillicothe) on October 15, 1918 at age 28 years.  Surviving him were his parents Henry and Nettie; wife Helen; and 6-month-old daughter Betty Jean.   He is buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Toledo.
