Biography
The life of Orville Howe met death when he was crushed between two trolly cars. The cars were the Akron, Kent and Ravenna No.23 and the Cuyahoga Falls car No.306. He was about to board the 10:30 Akron, Kent and Ravenna Car on his way home when a lady was about to get off, he courteously stepping back to allow her to pass and before he could step aboard was caught in" the devil's strip" by the Falls car and was badly crushed in the small space between the cars on parallel tracks.

There appears to be some question of when Orville was actually born. The Falls Recorder (Record) newspaper article account of his death written March 14, 1910 places his age as 75 years ,10 months and 10 days old. This would make his birth date in 1835 and not 1837. However, information taken from the 1900 census shows his birth as August 1837. He was 62 years of age at that time. Family birth records also show his birth as August 28, 1837. Coincident to the time of his death was the birth of Charles O. Howe who was born Monday March 10, 1913 the son of Minnie and Minor Howe. The family had a house servant living with them by the name of Gertude Fellenbaum who was born October 1879 in Ohio. This information is from the 1900 census as well.

In a further investigation surrounding the identity of Ellen J. Callahan, daughter of Lucius Howe,it was learned that Orville owned grave sites 1-6 lot 576 in Oakwood Cemetery. There is one open grave site yet to be used in lot 576.

Julany Holcomb died at the family home on a Sunday afternoon ,she was 64 years, 8 months and 17 days of age. She moved to the Cuyahoga Falls at one years of age and lived here ever since. Funeral services were held at the home on a Wednesday and was buried at Oakwood Cemetery. Rev. W. J. Wilson of the Methodist Episcopal Church officiated.

There is one open grave site yet to be used in lot 576.
