    • From Warren County Ohio Obituary for Perry H. Rue:

      P.H. Rue Funeral

      The funeral services for the late P.H. Rue Franklin attorney who died last week suddenly at his office were held at the home at Franklin Thursday afternoon. Many from Lebanon, including members of the Bar attended the services as a mark of tribute to his memory.

      Perry H. Rue was a graduate of the Franklin high school, being a member of the class of 1877. For many years he has been a respected member of the Warren County Bar Association and was Franklin's leading attorney. When he had finished his course at old Franklin High he went to Ann Arbor, Michigan, and studied for one year in the literary course. He then entered the law office of Craighead & Craighead in Dayton and read law. He was admitted to the bar in October, 1880. Next he entered the senior class of the Cincinnati Law School, from which he also graduated and was again admitted to the bar. He then opened an office in Cincinnati and in 1883 he came back to Franklin and opened an office which he has steadily maintained until the time of his death. Thus for more than forty years he had served the people of Franklin as a conscientious and diligent adviser in matters of the law.

      Ever since 1883 he has been one of Franklin's busiest and most respected citizens. When the Mackinaw Railroad declared its intention of extending the road to Franklin the officials appointed him their attorney for the purchase of the right of way and other matters. Soon after this he was made Secretary and Treasurer of the Franklin Electric Light Company, and a little later he became the Secretary of the Miami Valley Fair Association. He also served as Secretary of the Franklin Hydraulic Company and as Secretary of the Franklin and Carlisle Railway Company. All these corporations brought to his desk a mass of detail work but little in the way of financial remuneration. He gave splendid service to the Mackinaw Improvement Company and was instrumental in the development of the West Side residential. As secretary and Treasurer of the Mackinaw Improvement Association he signed every deed that is held by the the original purchasers of lots on the West Side.

      In 1884 he was elected Mayor of the village to fill the short term after the resignation of John M. Dachtler. In 1885 he was reelected to the same office for the full term.

      On October 30, 1890 he was united in marriage to Miss Anna Colcher, and shortly after moved into the home on Park avenue, which they have occupied ever since. Three children, two sons and a daughter were born to them and with the widow, remain to mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent father.

      In later years, he was interested in the formation of the Franklin Wheel Company, and served as its Secretary and Treasurer, being also a stockholder and director of the Garrison Spoke Company. As an attorney he had many clients among the corporations and business men of Franklin and was a stockholder in a number of enterprises. At the time of his death he was the attorney of the Franklin National Bank and Miami Valley Building and Loan Association. IN all these positions of trust his integrity was above question and his dependability recognized by all.

      He was one of the charter members and founders of the Franklin Rotary Club, being familiarly known to his associates as "Chief."

      As the recognized head of the Peru Island Fishing Club, he was widely known among the natives and guides of the MacGregor Bay and country of Ontario. Years ago he began making vacation trips to this beautiful region and when an island was purchased and a house built by local fishermen, the organization was called the Peru (P. Rue) Island Fishing Club, in his honor.

      Mr. Rue is survived by his wife, two sons, Milton of Potsdam, N.Y., Allen, of Detroit; one daughter, Mrs Mary Rue Shepperd, of Chicago, Ill., and two sisters, Miss Minnie Rue, of Dayton, and Mrs. Charles Noggle, who, with her husband is now on a year's tour through the west.
