Death*Thomas Eugene Dunshee died on 20 March 1918 at age 63.4 
Story*The following non-attributed obituary was transcribed by "Dawn" and submitted to the Richland County, Ohio USGenWeb website:

"LEXINGTON MAN TAKES OWN LIFE --
Thomas Eugene Dunshee, aged 63 years, retired farmer and one of the most prominent men in Lexington, took his own life yesterday morning by jumping from the Main street bridge in that village into the Clearfork. John Castor who resides just east of the bridge saw what he thought to be clothing in the water early in the morning but thought nothing of it until he learned that Mr. Dunshee had been missing from his home since early morning, and upon investigation it was found to be the body of the unfortunate man. The body was removed from the stream and taken to the Benham undertaking parlors to be prepared for burial.

Coroner LeBarre conducted an inquest which developed the fact that Mr. Dunshee had been in ill health for several months and had worried to such an extent that friends believed him to be demented at different intervals. It is also believed that during these periods he contemplated self destruction from conversations he had with different business men in the village.

Mr. Dunshee had lived in Troy township and Lexington for the past 50 years, a number of years ago retiring from the farm and moving to Lexington. Since that time he had held almost every elective office in the village.

He is survived by his wife, one son, Claud, and one daughter, Mrs. Samuel Cureton, both of Lexington. Funeral arrangements have not been made.

Additional obituary from the paper dated March 22, 1918

Funeral services for Thomas E. Dunshee will be conducted this afternoon at 2 o'clock from his late home in Lexington, and Rev. A.N. Shedd will officiate. Burial will be made in Lexington cemetery.7 "
