Obituary [Newspaper Clipping, unattributed]

Death of Alexander Leeper

Mr. Alexander Leeper died at this home, 285
Underwood street, last night at 12 o'clock, after
a long sickness, aged 72 years. Mr. Leeper was
born in Washington Co., Pa. He emigrated to
Guernsey county, Ohio at an early day and was well
and favorably known throughout that county as
an active Christian gentleman. He came to Zanesville
about twenty years ago. Here he worked for a long
time at his trade -- a jeweler -- but was better known
throughout the country as the proprietor of Leeper's
Linament, having been engaged in manufacturing and
selling that remedy for many years. He was a member
of the M. E. Church, and an active and consciencious
worker in the Master's cause. The time of the funeral
will be made known.

[I have scanned the additional ephemera as well. There
is so much character in this Bible, and these pieces tell
a lot about what the family was interested in, or found
funny. The piece of a label, price $1.00, I believe in a
remenant of a label that was on "Leeper's Linament" --
see the obituary.]
