A Youthful Suicide – Last Wednesday, Mr. Alfred Arthur, of Glensdale, sent his son – a lad some fourteen years of age – with a team and cultivator to work a piece of ground. - In the course of the day another boy joined him, and the two seated themselves upon the cultivator and drove the horses at an unusually rapid pace for the remainder of the day, consequently the team became over-heated, and while in this condition they were allowed by the boys to drink their fill of cold water while on the way home.  The next morning the horses were found unfit for use, being stiffened and foundered, upon which Mr. Arthur severely reprimanded his son for his cruelty and heedlessness, and nothing further was thought of the matter.  In the afternoon, the report of a gun drew attention to barn, whence the sound proceeded, and where a shocking spectacle was discovered.  The son of Mr. Arthur was there found lying on his back, dead, with one foot denuded of its boot and stocking.  A rifle lay across his breast with its muzzle against the temple of the unfortunate youth whose blood and brains were yet oozing from a frightful wound in the side of his head opposite where the charge from the gun had entered – the skull bones being shattered to fragments, were still held together in a shapeless mass by skin.  He evidently drew the trigger with is large toe.  No cause, except of chagrin and anger, can be as signed for this unfortunate act.  A Coroner and jury were soon after convened, who rendered a verdict of “suicide by shooting,” in accordance with the above stated facts.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, May 21, 1862)

BOSHART – In this village, on the 11th inst., Mrs. Dolly Boshart, aged 87 years, 5 months and 7 days.

She was born in Saxony (Germany) and when only two years old was brought over the water by her parents to Johnstown, in this State, where she resided until she reached the age of eighteen years, when she was united in marriage to Garret Boshart.  The newly married pair moved to Lowville, which was then a wilderness.  The fruits of this marriage were six sons and four daughters, of whom all but two sons are now living.  Her husband, who served for several years in the eldership of Lowville Presbyterian church, died about thirty years ago.  The subject of this notice resided in Lowville from the time of her marriage until her decease, a period of nearly seventy years.  Early in life she gave her heart to the Savior; and she connected herself with the Presbyterian church in this village soon after its organization, about half a century ago, and during the pastorate of Rev. David Kimball.  She was greatly loved in her household, and highly respected in the community, and by her long and consistent religious life has left behind her an example worthy of imitation by all.  She was always at her place in the sanctuary on the Lord's day, unless when prevented by illness and the infirmities of age.  Religion was the subject uppermost in her mind, and as her life was a life of piety, her last days on earth were tranquil and happy.

To the children of the deceased, it must be comforting to be assured that their loved and venerated parent has left a name fragrant in the church and in the memory of her surviving friends, and that the liberated and gentle spirit is now sweetly reposing in the bosom of her Savior.

The funeral services on the occasion of her decease were held in the Presbyterian church on the afternoon of Sunday, June 13, and were largely attended, when an appropriate discourse was delivered by her pastor, on the words in Hebrews, 4th chapter and 3d verse - “For we which have believed do enter into rest.”  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, June 23, 1875)

The deceased, for more than two weeks prior to her death, suffered intensely, but with truly Christian fortitude and patience, from a most painful and distressing disease.  Her intellect remained clear and unclouded to the last.  Not a murmur of complaint escaped her lips during the terrible ordeal through which she was called to pass.  Her departure was quiet, calm and peaceful as a child falling into a gentle sleep, surrounded by her family and friends.

By this bereavement the Christian Church is deprived of an active consistent, eminently worthy and universally esteemed communicant; the community in which she lived, of one of its best and most highly esteemed members, and a large circle of relatives and friends, of a long-cherished and fondly-loved wife, sister, counselor and associate.

William BUDD

Obituary – We extract the following from the Carthage Republican of last week:  Wm. C. Budd, son of Dr. B. S. Budd of Constableville, Lewis county, and formerly of this place, was killed in Mississippi on the 31st of August, 1862.  the circumstances relating to his death are as follows:

Company H, of the 11th Iowa Infantry were detailed to guard a wagon train from Bolivar to Jackson.  They arrested with the train safe and sound at Jackson, and on their return to Bolivar, fell into an ambuscade of the enemy.  The first intimation they had of the proximity of the enemy, was a volley of musketry from a thicket they were passing, poured into their midst, but luckily, not killing a man.  Sergeant Budd gave the command to charge, when the Rebels poured another volley of bullets into them, and he felt, encouraging on his men, pierced by four balls.  The first striking him over the left eye, the second striking him in the side and going through the lungs, and the other two striking him, one in the arm and the other in the leg.  The enemy then sallied forth from the thicket, and the company fell back some two miles, where they received reinforcements – So hasty was their retreat that they had no time to recover his body.  They again advanced, and finding nothing of the body, made inquires in the neighborhood, and found that he had been decently interred in a Churchyard near by.  The Iowa papers, in speaking of the engagement, remark as follows:

“It was in this engagement that Sergeant Wm. C. Budd fell.  He was a high souled man, a brave man, and esteemed by all who knew him, as an honest man.  He was promoted for his gallantry at Pittsburgh Landing, from a private to a Sergeant.  In his death the country has lost a true patriot and a man, although a common officer, long to be remembered as one who died for his country's flag, whose blessings he had enjoyed for thirty-four years.”

He has a brother – Lieut. Geo. W. Budd, in the 2d Iowa Cavalry, and had another brother, Chas. B. Budd, who was a member of the 57th N.Y., but was discharged last spring, for disability resulting from a fall, and is now stopping in this village.  He has so far recovered as to be able to be about again.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, October 29, 1862)

George BUTTERS

Accidental Death by Hanging – Last Thursday morning, George Oscar Butters, a boy about 10 years old, son of George O. Butters, who lives on the “Halifax Road,” near Denmark village, came to a horrible death while attempting to show some smaller children the manner in which people hang themselves.  They went into a smokehouse, within a few paces of his father's house, and Oscar, taking a piece of web line, tied one end to a hook on one side of the smokehouse, threw the line over a cross-beam from which hams are hung, then tying the other end around his neck, got up on a saw-horse which was standing under the beam.  When in his position, loosing his balance, the horse tripped to the front and threw the boy over backward, breaking his neck by the fall, with his head only sixteen inches from the ground.  A younger brother ran to the house and told his mother that “Oscar was showing them how to hang,” when she went to the door and called to him, but receiving no answer, she became alarmed, and went to the smokehouse and found the boy in the position above described, with froth running from his mouth, but yet alive.  She tried to loosen the line around his neck but could not, and in five or six minutes after the line was cut, the boy breathed his last.

This should be a terrible warning to boys not to attempt to illustrate deeds which only wicked or crazy men perform, to rid themselves of a world which is far too good for them.  Oscar was an unusually bright an intelligent lad, loved by all who knew him, and we can but sympathize with the parents who suffer from such a sad bereavement.  (Lewis County Democrat (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, April 24, 1867)

Turin
In the early morning hours of Sunday, May 23d, 1909, at the family residence north of this village, Mrs. Smith M.

E. Church, with Mr. Capron uniting a year ago during the evangelistic services held here by the Rev. Albert H. Zimmerman, D. D.  Besides her husband, Smith M.

Mary CHAMBERS

Death of Mrs. Mary P. Chamber – Our citizens will be pained to hear of the death of Mrs. Mary P. Chambers, wife of Dexter Chambers, and eldest daughter of the late Russel Parish, of this place.  She died at Brooklyn on the 14th inst., from an over-dose of nux-vomica.  We copy the following from a Brooklyn paper, giving the particulars of the sad occurrence:

On Tuesday evening, Mrs. Mary P. Chambers, a lady of 35 years, died from an overdose of nux vomica, which is the medical term for what is popularly known as strychnine.  It seems that on the 12th instant, the deceased, who boards at No. 68 Pierrepont, corner of Henry, st., a boarding house kept by a Mrs. Williams, received a prescription for neuralgia from Dr. Reese who has an office at the number last named.  It read:

R. Quluine Sulph – ½ drachm.
Ext. Nux Vomica – 1 grain
Mix and make pills 15.
Dose 1 pill every two hours.

Contrary to custom, in this case the prescription was written very plainly, so that there could be no mistake about putting it up or copying it except by the most egregious blundering.

The prescription was taken to the drug store of H. H. Dickinson, corner of Atlantic and Henry streets, and there properly put up.  The fifteen pills lasted several days, and in the meantime the husband of Mrs. Chambers has left for New England on business.  Not long after her troublesome neuralgia re-appearing, she sent to have the prescription, which was numbered 155,048 renewed.  Unfortunate for all, he dropped in at the newer establishment of Mr. Dickinson, located at the corner of Montague and Hicks street.  In those stores the proprietor, who has  long been in the business in this city, claims to have reliable clerks to put up prescriptions, and the only excuse which they can offer for the present mistake is that it is simply unaccountable.  Instead of directing the messenger to the store where the prescription was originally put up, the clerk, probably anxious to do business, and in accordance with custom, sent around to the original establishment for a copy of the prescription.

The clerk who had originally put up the medicine copied the formula from the book in which prescriptions are posted for reference and safety, but just as it was done he blotted it so that the portions were indistinct.  According to his own statement, while laughing and joking with the porter he recopied the prescription, making it read instead of one grain of nux vomica, one drachm, or sixty times as much as Dr. Reese had intended.  He attributed his blunder to the fact that he had once copied the formula, and the second time partially retained the proportions in his mind and the character “drachm” being exactly above where he should have made the one used by the physicians for “grain,” he copied it and sent the error to the other store.

This was about Tuesday noon last, and when the formula reached there, the clerk who was to put it up noticed that it was an unusual formula and finally consulted Mr. Dickinson in his private room, saying: “is not this a heavy dose?”

The proprietor looked at it, and as he states, said, “Yes don't put it up until you have sent around to the other store to see whether it is right.”  This caution was equivalent to an order butt the young man saw fit to disobey it, and by this palpable disobedience sent into eternity a very estimable woman.  During the afternoon the mistaken prescription was put up and sent to Mo. 63 Pierrepont street.  There was still a chance for Mrs. Chambers, to save her life, if she had noticed the difference in the size of the pills sent, the latter being much larger than the former.  Trusting to the doctor and apothecary, however, she took one pill as directed, and at the time she should have repeated the dose, was undergoing those muscular contortions attendant on death by strychnine.  In the course of the evening she died, having taken four drachms, or two hundred and forty grains of a poison rarely prescribed in doses exceeding one eighth part of a grain.  The proportions of this mistake are astounding.

Later, on the Coroner's inquest, Mrs. Parish testified, that she was the mother of the deceased, and that the medicine was procured at the store of Mr. Dickenson.  Her daughter refused at first to take the pills, as they were so much larger than those she had taken before, and were also soft.  She finally took one, and when witness again visited her she found her in convulsions.  (Lewis County Democrat (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, May 22, 1867)

Elizabeth CLARK

Obituary – Mrs. Elizabeth H. Clark, wife of Newton Clark, Esq., of Turin, N.Y., died February 7th, 1864, aged about [8?]0 years.  The deceased and her husband were among the earliest settlers of Lewis county.   They were married in 1812, and for more than 60 years were residents of the town of Turin.  Their noble purpose, early formed, of leading a virtuous and happy life, and their desire to live to see their children capable of caring for themselves, both had the satisfaction of seeing accomplished.  As they looked upon their numerous offspring settled around them, and enjoying the comforts of competency, they freely acknowledged that their life-work had been amply rewarded, and the deceased, for a considerable time previous to her death, had been preparing for the life to come as calmly as in youth she had prepared for the life now gone.  The 1[6?] of December, 1862, the fiftieth anniversary of her wedding was, perhaps, the happiest day of her life, as, unexpectedly to her and her companion, she found her house warmed and abundantly furnished for a family festival, while children and grand-children, brothers and sister, and old residents, gathered around the fires and the board of the old homestead, to honor with tokens of affection the venerated couple.  As a wife and mother, her eulogy was written in the words of Solomon, “She looketh well to the ways of  her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness.  Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”  As a Christian, and member of the Baptist church over thirty years, she has doubtless received a cordial welcome from the earthly Sabbath, on the morning of which she died into the bright day of heaven where there is no night, nor sorrow, and where the weary are forever at rest, while many, not connected to her by kindred ties, remain to lament her absence, to commend her virtues, and to sympathize with the bereaved husband and children.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, February 17, 1864)

John DOIG

Death of John Doig – We publish in to-day's issue, notice of the death of John Doig, of this village.  His death was unexpected to many – all hoped for his recovery.  Everything that human skill could do to save his life was done, but it was all useless.  No citizen had a stronger hold on the esteem, confidence and respect of a community, than did John Doig on his fellow townsmen, among whom he was born and always lived, and by whom he was always trusted and loved.  As a business man he was honorable, straightforward and honest.  He was successful as he deserved to be.  His success begot no envy – all conceded it was merited and right.  As a promoter of public enterprises he possessed judgement, and his influence was with the right.  Though often urged to hold official position, he always declined.  He was too modest, and too devoted to his family and business to bear intended honor, of suffer the interruption.  The only exception we think of, he served as Trustee and President of the village.

As a friend he was true and trusty – the faithful friend in affliction and adversity as well as in prosperity.  His large social feelings were gratified in entertaining his friends at his home, and they led him to become a member of the social and benevolent societies of the town.  His place of business was much resorted to for social enjoyment as well as trade.  All took pleasure in his society wherever they met him.

In his death this community has lost one of its ablest men, one of its best business men, and above all an honest and good man, whose vacant place will every day cause us to wish for another as good and true as he.  It is sad to see him cut down in the midst of his most useful days; but a mysterious Providence has done it for the best, and his family and friends, while they bow in grief must say, “He doeth all things well,” and while cherishing his memory, should strive to follow his good example.  (Lewis County Democrat (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, November 20, 1867)

Sad Accident – We learn that Dr. Douglass of Port Leyden, passed through here yesterday, with the remains of his son, who was accidentally drowned while attempting to cross a river on the ice, somewhere in Michigan.  It seems he was teaching school near the river, and had repeatedly warned his scholars not to cross the river.  One evening after school, he threw his coat over his arm, took a little girl by the hand and ventured upon the ice.  It proved too weak, and when he saw it giving way, he pushed the child as far as he could from him, threw his coat, and after a fruitless struggle, sunk to rise no more.  The afflicted family are entitled to our warmest sympathies in this sore bereavement.  - Boonville Herald.  [Eugene Douglass]  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, March 18, 1863)

Mysterious Disappearance -
Constableville, Feb. 25, 1861

Michael Gilogly left his home for town meeting, Tuesday, the 19th inst. and has not been seen since by his family.  He was at town meeting, and was there seen by several persons at different times during the day.  At about [?] o'clock in the evening he is known to have entered the house of Thomas Claffy, of High Market, to await the coming of his son from Boonville, with whom he was going to ride home; while there a difficulty arose between the persons present, which led to high words and to blows, and in the affray Claffy inhumanly struck Gilogly on the head with a cudgel, since which he has not been seen or heard of.  Esquire Ryel issued subpoenas this day to all persons present at the time of the affray, and is now holding, with closed doors, an extra judicial examination, of the persons, to see if there is sufficient evidence of foul play to arrest any one.

LATER – Thos. Claffy has been arrested for assault upon the person of Michael Gilogly, with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, and committed to jail in default of bail.  A thorough search is to be made on the 27th for the body, by the citizens of Constableville.

The citizens of Constableville made a thorough search of the road leading to Gilogly's house, from High Market, and also searched the houses in the vicinity, the pond of S. C. Thompson was cut into, and a thorough search instituted but no signs of him could be found.  - Things look more mysterious of foul play.  Claffy's was set at $1,000.  The wife of Claffy has sworn to have revenge on Connoley, the principal witness in the case, for ever telling that her husband struck him.  Some surmise that he was murdered before he left the house and then secreted.

LATEST – The body of Gilogy was found about one hundred rods from Claffy's house, Friday last.  His body was mostly covered with snow.  Whiskey did the business.

Ed. Banner -

Sir: On Wednesday evening last the dwelling of Mr. David H. Greene, situated about one and a half miles north of this village, was entirely consumed by fire, and two children – Ruston V. R. and Alfred A. aged respectively 10 and 8 years, perished in the flames.

Mr. Green was away from home at the time, Mrs. G. with five children (these two being the oldest) and a young girl, a relation, being alone in the house.  The family retired to rest at about 9 o'clock – and at 10 1 2 Mrs. G. was awakened by an unusual crackling sound and the smoke in her room.  She immediately roused the too children and the girl who slept below and started to go up stairs for the boys, but before reaching the head of the stairs was chocked by the flames and smoke, and fell back.  She then ran to the front of the house and called to them to jump from the windows, but they could not.  They were undoubtedly suffocated by the smoke.  Before any assistance from the neighbors could arrive it was too late to attempt to enter the then entire blazing building.

The remains of the children were found about one o'clock, but so charred as scarcely to be recognized as human forms.  One of them evidently never moved from the bed as his body was found in the cellar and directly under where his bed stood and under and around it were fragments of burned clothing &c. while the other was found on the opposite side of the house.

So rapid was the fire that not a single article was saved, those who escaped having nothing but their night clothes.

Our entire community unite in their Sympathy for the bereaved family.

In haste Yours,

Suicides in Leyden – Mr. Editor – We live in the midst of alarms.  On Sunday and Monday, the 18th and 19th insts., the people of the southern part of Leyden, were thrown into consternation by the suicide, by poisoning, of a young woman in their midst, Miss Mary Schermerhorn.

On Tuesday, the 27th inst., a still more shocking death arrested the ear and eye of the public in this vicinity – Mrs. Nelson Harris, living between Port Leyden and Lyon's Falls, was found alone, in her house, with her throat cut in a fatal manner, her person drenched in blood, and the room, to an extent of seven feet from the lounge, where the razor lay in a pool of gore, and where the deed doubtless was done, covered with spatters, daubs, and lesser pools of blood, showing signs of a struggle.  Physicians were called, and an inquest held, at which the following facts were elicited: The deceased had been out of health some time, complaining much of her head; her husband was absent hunting, and her children being at a neighbor's, she committed the fatal act; when her oldest daughter, (about 11 years of age) returning, saw her mother falling upon the lounge, with drops of blood trickling from her neck.  Frightened, she began to scream; her mother said to her, “Run for the neighbors !”  She did so, but before they arrived she had finished the work of self-destruction, and lay stretched upon the floor, weltering in her blood.  The physicians report much haggling in the cut, there being seven distinct gashes; in the sixth and seventh she succeeded in severing one jugular vein, the esophagus, cutting down to the vertebra.  Neither of the main arteries were cut nor the other jugular; the eyes and mouth found open, tongue natural, and hands clenched.  No clue to the cause of this melancholy deed has been discovered, unless it be nervous dejection, or partial derangement of the mind.  After a careful examination of the facts presented to the jury, a verdict was immediately rendered of suicide by cutting the throat.

William E. HARRIS

Idaho Pioneer Dead

Nampa, April 25 - Word has been received of the death at Lowville, N. Y., of William E. Harris, one of the pioneers of this section. Mr. Harris left here last September to spend the winter with relatives in New York, expecting to return this spring. Just as he was making preparations to return he became ill, and passed away April 20. He was 91 years of age, having been born in Lewis County, New York, Spetember 22, 1820.

He came to Idaho in the early '60's and lived continually in Owyhee and Canyon counties until last fall. He was a member of the Nampa Masonic lodge and was one of the oldest Masons in Idaho, having been made a Mastor Mason in 1851. He leaves many friends among the old timers in this section, but has no living relatives in Idaho so far as can be learned. (Idaho Statesman, April 27, 1912, page 10, transcribed by Peggy Thompson)

A Father Murdered by his Son – in Greig!
A Cold Blooded Transaction
The Murderer Escapes

We gather the following particulars in regard to the murder in Greig, from the Utica Telegraph, of Dec. 19th:

The people living in the vicinity of Mr. Henry Harvey whose residence is about six miles north of Boonville, and within one and a half miles of Port Leyden, were horrified by the intelligence that George Harvey, a young man between 19 and 21 years of age, had, in cold blood, murdered his father, while he was quietly sleeping on a lounge, at about 4 o'clock in the morning.  The foul deed was committed with a gun, held so close to the face as to begrim it with powder.  The charge entered the head through the right eye, leaving a ghastly hole most of the way through.  After the murder the monster appears to have changed his clothes and deliberately left the house.  It appears that the father, who is a mason by trade, was accustomed to indulge in the use of liquor occasionally, at which time he was always harmless, and more inclined to fun and folly, than malice.  He appears to have been drunk on this occasion, and his son had had an altercation about it, which created so much disturbance that the neighbors were called in, during the night, or in the early morning, and had left the house and inmates quiet.  Some time after, at about 4 o'clock, one of these persons heard the report of a gun, and fearing the worst, immediately started for the house.  On his way, he met the young man, who immediately said:

“I've shot my father.”

You haven't! - have you !” was the response, and he replied:

“Yes, I have !”

He was told that he could not go away, and was left in the custody of an Irishman living near by.  On going to the house, the mother of the young man said her husband had killed himself, but his position – lying naturally, with his hand under his head – gave the lie to any such effort to account for the death, and led to the suspicion that she was an accomplice, or said so through fear: no doubt the latter.

Upon raising an alarm, and going to look for Harvey, the neighbors found that he had been allowed to escape, it would appear that no immediate efforts at pursuit were attempted, as it was afterwards ascertained that Harvey went to Boonville, and there inquired what time the cars went, and also as to the time they would reach Alder Creek.  - Upon being told, he said he could walk there, and accordingly started down the track.  When the cars reached Alder Creek, he got aboard, and from the description given of the man to Conductor Marcy, he has no doubt but he came to Utica.  When here, he doubtless took the cars either for the east or west, more probably the former, and may now be out of reach.

Mr. M. A. Stone, constable of the town of Turin, came to the city in the afternoon train in pursuit, and immediately telegraphed to the Chief of Police in New York.

The above particulars we obtain from Mr. Stone.  The excitement in the neighborhood of the tragedy is intense, and the most fervent hopes are expressed that the patricide may be arrested.

Such an unnatural act, committed with such apparent coolness, curdles the blood with horror, and causes the most heartfelt wishes to go up for the arrest of and punishment of the offender.  It is thought that Harvey may make his way to the encampment of the 14th Reg., as many of his friends and acquaintances belonging to that organization.  - it is only conjecture, however.

Additional Particulars.

Dec. 20th – We learn from several police officers who arrived in town this morning from the scene of the murder, that both parents were intoxicated on the night of the tragedy and had been fighting, but the fight had ended, and the neighbor, named Woodcock, who was called in, and who lives about 50 rods from the house, had left the house with the inmates quiet, about two o'clock.  He had not been in bed long when he heard the gun and a cry.  He had only partially dressed when the wife of Mr. Harvey came to his house and said her husband had shot himself.  On going to the house, Woodcock met George, who said he was going to Port Leyden to deliver himself up.  Upon this, W. told him he could not go, and accordingly took him back to his father's house.  He was left in charge of another neighbor, who allowed him to go and change his clothes, which he did from the head to foot.  He was afterwards allowed to escape.  The family lived on the opposite side of the Black River, about two miles and a half up from Port Leyden, in the town of Greig.  - He appears to have gone down the river, crossed at Port Leyden, and reached Boonville at 5 o'clock, and must have walked or ran five miles and a half in an hour.  He went down the track to Alder Creek, and was passed by the train just before it arrived at the station.  He got aboard the train and paid his fare to Utica from a $10 gold piece, which is supposed to be all the money he had.  There is little doubt but he went directly east on the ten thirty train.

He left New York in September last, to spend the winter months in the West Indies, to escape the rigor of our climate, which from a Calarrhal affection, caused him much suffering at this season.  The vessel in which he sailed, touched at Kingston, Jamaica, for a few days, at which place malignant fever was prevalent, and where he doubtless contracted it.  The first attack yielded to medicine, and was thrown off, but within a few days returned, baffling all the efforts of the physician, and terminating in death, after six days.  (Northern Journal (Lowville, NY) – Thursday, February 6, 1840)

Fatal Accident

In Croghan, January 27th, Newell D. Higby, eldest son of Gilbert C., and Ann J. Higby, was instantly killed, aged 15 years.

The particulars are as follows:  While engaged with another boy in rolling logs down a hill, he stood leaning against a log; the ground gave away under it, which set it rolling, a knot caught in the skirt of his coat, and he rolled down the hill with the log, a distance of some twenty feet.  Two of his limbs were broken, and his head and shoulders severely bruised, although not injuring his countenance a great deal.  When assistance reached him it was too late – his spirit had taken its everlasting departure and all that was left of the once noble youth, was his bruised and mangled body.

He was a boy of uncommon qualities, highly respected and loved by all that knew him.  He was kind to his parents, and wherever he went, he won the affection of his associates.  [?] one of earth's fairest buds of promise has been snatched away by the rude hand of death.  The pride of the parent's heart has been laid away in the silent grave; a bright link has been taken from the chain of friendship, no more to be replaced.  With him was buried many a cherished hope, many a bright prospect for the future; but he has left a good name, and a character unstained by the vices of this vicious world.

Death of Hon. Timothy Jenkins

It is with feelings of the deepest sorrow that we announce the sudden death of Hon.

Jenkins, the District Attorney elect, started from this village with a horse and sleigh to attend the Circuit Court in session at Martinsburgh.  That day it will be remember was a bitter cold one, one of the severest of the season, and it going over the hills and through the open country from here to that place, he must have become pretty thoroughly chilled, of this, however we are without positive information.  Wednesday morning he was taken ill, and continued to grow worse, a messenger reached this village about 8 p.m. Saturday for Dr. H. H. Pope, to go to Martinsburgh to see Mr. J., the same messenger took the 8 ½ p.m. train for Oneida Castle to notify Mrs. J. of the critical condition of her husband.  Dr. Pope was to start to Martinsburgh Sunday morning but at midnight, Saturday, another messenger arrived from Martinsburgh, bringing the sad and startling news of Mr. Jenkins' death!  Sunday morning Mrs. Jenkins arrived in this village on her way to Martinsburgh, but here learned the distressing intelligence of the fatal termination of her husband's disease.  He was attacked with billious fever, of which, we hear, he died.  His remains passed through this village about 4 p.m. Sunday, for Oneida Castle.

We have not the materials at hand, even if our feelings would permit, to write a fitting obituary of the deceased.  The prominent part he has acted in the politics, and at the Bar of this County and State, has established for him a reputation, which is not by any means confined to the geographical limits of New York.  In an official capacity, as district Attorney, and as Member of Congress for three terms, he discharged his duties with that remarkable ability and fidelity, as to leave upon his fair fame no blot, no, not even the taint of breath of suspicion.  As a lawyer he ranked amongst the first in the State, and the trial or argument of cases, his antagonist, no matter who he was, found in Timothy Jenkins, a “foeman worthy of his steel.”

As a citizen, as a neighbor, in all the private walks of life, in the social or family circles, he was peculiarly attractive and deservedly popular.  To strangers at first sight, he might seem reserved and forbidding, but a brief acquaintance dissipated all such ideas, for he was in conversation one of the most social and entertaining of men.  To young men, particularly those of the legal profession, struggling for success, he was a very kind, social and obliging, and it was for these qualities that made him so popular with his neighbors, and endeared him so highly to the junior members of the Bar.

But he has departed, a noble specimen of a man, with the finest of feelings, the tenderest sensibilities, and with rare and generous impulses, has gone to his rest, with a mind unimpaired by time, and intellect undimmed by use.  Timothy Jenkins has gone to his long home, leaving behind him many, many warm friends, who will mourn with true sorrow the loss of a noble friend.  He was not quite sixty years of age.  The time of his funeral has not as yet been fixed, as we hear.

It is somewhat of a strange coincidence that just a year ago at this time, Mr. J. was attending the Circuit at Martinsburgh when the hotel was burned where he was stopping, he was awakened in the night by a sense of suffocation, and had reason and strength enough left to get up and raise a window, without even then knowledge what aided him, soon the flames burst in the entire building, and Mr. J. has frequently said since that in three of five minutes longer, if he had not awoke, he would have been past recovery.

JONES – At the house of his father, Evan R. Jones, in Turin, Mr. David C. Jones, aged 19 years and 4 months, April 28, 1864.

A private in Battery H., 1st N. Y. A., he took part in the siege of Yorktown, was in the battle of Williamsburgh, also at Bottom's Bridge, Chickahominy, when the rebels were driven from a strong position on the opposite bank; also at Savage Station, at Fair Oaks, when Battery H occupied the front position, and was warmly engaged for four hours, losing 28 horses, its captain, 1st lieutenant, and ten men more or less severely wounded, and during the same day's battle the battery was scarcely unharnessed.  He was with Dix's expedition ag'st Richmond and engaged the enemy; was at Cross Roads July 1, 1862; at the battles of Gettysburgh and Mine Run, under Gen. Meade.  From his toils and exposures he was taken sick about six months before his death, during which time he endured much suffering in the hospital, and only reached his father's house six days before that event.  Thus has passed away another of our brave sons, whose precious life has been required by the existence of as wicked and causeless a rebellion as ever was known among the governments of men; and thus we have had another evidence of the readiness with which our young men have been willing to devote themselves to the salvation of their country.  And thus another has been added to the long list of patriotic martyrs who have been privileged to join those who have long gone before as first sacrifices to the cause of human liberty in this land, and this nation will ever hold in grateful remembrance, the self-denying toils and sacrifices of such men.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, June 29, 1864)

Johannagh KENNEDY

A Child Burned to Death – About 3 p.m. on Friday last, Thomas Kennedy's house, in the town of Martinsburgh, was burned, and a little child perished in the flames.  The particulars as we learn them are painful in the extreme.  Mr. Kennedy was away from home, and his wife had gone on an errand to a neighbor's, about half a mile distant, leaving her two children, respectively three and eight years of age, in the house.  She had taken up some ashes previous to leaving, in which were live coals, and placed them outdoors, near the house.  The supposition is that the coals were carried by the high wind which was raging in contact with the house, thus kindling the fire which led to such disastrous results.  The oldest child escaped, but the younger one perished before aid could reach it.

Beside this sad bereavement, Mr. Kennedy suffers the loss of nearly all his earthly possessions. None of his furniture or clothing were saved, and a sum of money which he had lately received for cheese and other products of the season's labor, was also destroyed. [Johannah ?

Calista LEE

Turin
Calista Stanford Lee, widow of the late James G. Lee, and the last member of her father’s family, passed away at the family residence in the eastern part of the town on Wednesday, May 19, 1909, at the advanced age of ninety years.  Death was due to the infirmities of age, her last illness being of less than one week’s duration.  Mrs. Lee was born in the town of Martinsburg, October 17, 1818.  She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Harvey Stanford, who were among the first settlers of that town.  With the perseverance known to many in those early days, her parents erected a log cabin and encountered many of the discomforts of pioneer life in what was then a remote and almost unbroken wilderness.  When a young girl Mrs. Lee was engaged as teacher in the school of her neighborhood.  When twenty-three years of age she became the wife of James G. Lee, of Turin.  Immediately after marriage they settled on a farm in eastern part of the town, which has been the home of Mrs. Lee for sixty-seven years and where her death occurred.  Mr. Lee’s death took place February 2, 1865.  Mrs. Lee united with the Turin Presbyterian church October 4, 1858, under the pastorate of the Rev. Charles B. Pond, and by her death there is removed the oldest member of that church.  When health and strength permitted she was a regular attendant at the services.  She was a woman of refined taste, remarkable industry, energy and economy, and was a devoted wife and mother.  She leaves to her children the priceless legacy of “an honored life, a peaceful end, and Heaven to crown it all.”  Those to survive are two sons, Augustus Lee, of Turin, and Wayland Lee, of Utica; thirteen grand children and five great grandchildren and five great grandchildren.  The funeral services were held from her late home on Friday afternoon at two o’clock. The Rev. John H. Strong spoke comforting words based upon he text found in Job 5:26, “Thou shalt come to thy grave in full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in this season.”  Favorite hymns of the decease, “Nearer My God to Thee,” Jesus Lover of My Soul,” and “Rock of Ages,” were rendered by Mrs. William S. Hart and Mrs. N. Arthur kidder.  There are many beautiful floral offerings, among them being the varieties most loved by the deceased.  The bearers were J. Lucius Seymour, Evan G. Williams, Ashley Shepard, Elon G.

Death of Charles Lee – On the 12th inst., Chas. Lee, one of the oldest settlers of the town of Martinsburgh, departed this life in the 86th year of his age.  He was a native of Westfield, Mass., and came to Lewis county in 1809, when there were but few inhabitants in this then thinly settled region.  It is the lot of but few men to live as Mr. Lee has lived, to see about him so many children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren; all his descendents, living and dead, numbering about seventy.  As a neighbor and a citizen, he was upright, and in all his business transactions, fair and prompt.  His generous heart could be easily touched with another's troubles, and he was ever found ready to give his assistance in all objects of public benefit.  (Lewis County Democrat (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, January 29, 1868)

Suicide – John B. Lee, a son of Chas. S. Lee, of Martinsburgh, aged 20 years, committed suicide about 11 o'clock Saturday night last, at his father's house, by shooting himself with a shotgun.  Mr. Lee borrowed a gun of a neighbor, saying he was going to shoot some geese.  He was found Sunday morning a few feet from a back door of the house, the gun laying across his arm.  It is thought he was lying on his back when the deed was committed, with the muzzle of the gun placed against his right cheek, and  stick run through the guard in front of the trigger, against which he pressed with his foot to fire the fatal shot which sent him into eternity.  The right side of his face and skull was blown entirely off, and his brains and hair scattered to a distance of twenty feet.  No one in the house heard the shot, but a neighbor near by thinks he heard the report about 11 o'clock.  No cause is given for the rash act, as the young man was in good health, and of temperate habits.  (Lewis County Democrat (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, July 3, 1867)

LEWIS – In the village of Remsen, N.Y., Nov. 23d, of consumption, Hugh Lewis, formerly of Turin, aged 35 years.

The subject of this sketch, together with his younger brother, Ellis, resided upon the old home farm in Collinsville, until the death of their parents, in 1863, when the removed to Chicago, where they become engaged in the station of the Chicago and Fort Wayne Railroad; that they were permitted to remain only a few months, for the younger brother was made the victim of typhoid fever, and died.  Hugh returned with the remains of his brother to this county, for burial, the old home having been broken up, our friend, instead of returning to Chicago, entered into trade in company with his brother, T. J. Lewis, ot Turin, and continued in business till lingering disease compelled him to cease altogether from any work; then he soon left Turin to live with his sister at Remsen.  He knew how to appreciate the kindness and care manifested toward him by his sister in his weakness.  Mr. Lewis was known as a quiet, inoffensive, industrious young man, a kind friend, upright citizen, a warm hearted brother, an humble christian.

He united when quite young with the Welsh C. M. church at Collinsville, and retained his connection with the dame while he lived.  During his sickness, his hold on life was tenacious, but at last her seemed calme and fully reconciled to the Divine will, leaving behind a testimony that he knew in whom he had trusted.  Said he to his brother, “I lean on Jesus Christ,” and with a few parting woods of advice, saying “I am in hast to go,” his spirit went home to God who gave it.  The best word that we can use in respect to our departed friend is, he died leaning on One who is might to save.  On Tuesday, Nov. 26th, the body was brought on the train to Lyon's Falls.  Appropriate services for the occasion were held in the Welsh church at Collinsville, then the remains were conveyed to the Turin cemetery, and there deposited in accordance with his request, by the side of his young brother.  Five of the family now sleep side by side in silence.  We trust that those left behind may so live in the faith, that in the “better Land,” the entire household may be reunited to chant together in heavenly places the anthem of the blest.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) –  Wednesday, December 4, 1872)

Also, on the same day [25th inst.], in West Turin, Mrs. Sarah Miller, aged 70 years.  The life of Mrs. Miller has been comprised more than ordinary, the painful and the pleasant.  Her original name was Sarah Wilcox, and she was a native of Granby, Conn.  At the age of 24 years, she came into this State, and made her home in Leyden, Lewis Co.  An acquaintance formed with a Mr. Prior, (who was then engaged in teaching) resulted in their marriage, in 18[0?]5.  Three years subsequent, with a little daughter, they removed to Ohio, to lay the foundation of a new home, scarcely did they arrived there, before fixing upon a place of residence, they were all ill and Mr. Prior died, leaving wife and child, peculiarly desolate and friendless.  Mrs. Prior turned her look towards the home of her early days.  In that day the only mode of travel was private conveyances.  She sadly committed to the bosom of the earth, [?] as year dear, and started on a long journey to Conn.  Those whom she employed to carry her, proved robbers and deserters, but she, feeble and weak, carried her little child, conducting her own conveyance, reached home in safety.  In 1813, Mr. Jesse Miller of Leyden, having his home desolated by bereavement, visited Ct., and returned with Mrs. Prior as his wife.  The subsequent years have been quiet, filled with usefulness and cheered by affection.  At the time of her decease, her husband lay at the neighboring hotel, balancing between life and death, having been thrown from a carriage, and they were unable to have an interview, nor he to look upon the face when cold in death.  Children, however, tenderly affectionate, gathered around the dead and the living, to do mournfully the last service, and soothe the afflicted and bereaved heart.  Mrs. Miller became a most decided Christian in early life, and united with the Baptist church, and all subsequent time till death, she was a marked an decided pattern of piety.  Sinking as she did, invested with peculiar trials her exit was happy and triumphant.  We feel intensely for the so bereaved, and would commend to them, as we trust they know how to appreciate “ a living Redeemer.”  (The Lewis County Republican (Martinsburgh, NY) – Wednesday, August 3, 1853)

Jimmey O'KANE

Jimmey O'Kane

Far away in the solitude of the forest, which skirts the eastern border of Lewis County, lived the Hermit Hunter and Trapper, Jimmey O'Kane.

More than twenty miles east of Lowville and some twelve miles beyond the most distant habitation of man, in that direction his lonely “Shanty,” located in a little clearing, near the confluence of Twitchell Creek with Beaver River, has attracted for ten years or more the attention of the traveler, who in search of business or pleasure, has chanced to journey in the wilderness.  In solitude and alone lived “Jimmey,” amid the dreary scene.  Why he thus absented himself from the “haunts and the converse of men,” and voluntarily chose this mode of life, still remains a mystery.  Whether he became disgusted with the vexations trails of life, with the perfidy of man or the frailty of woman, or whether he sought in the dark recesses of the dim old wood the retirement and seclusion he deemed the necessary accompaniment of that meditation upon things eternal which is rewarded with “that peace which the world cannot give,” must be forever left to the conjecture of the curious student of the philosophy of the mind, or the imagination or the romantic observer of the changing vagaries of the human heart.

Perhaps he was an ardent student of nature, and loved to gaze upon the sheen of silver waters, the loveliness of the wild flowers, the magnificence of forest scenery, rocks, hills, mountains, rivers, lakes, streams, stretching afar off from his solitary home in the extended lines of changeless beauty.  Then again we may be led to suspect that the pleasures of the chase were his only solace, and that he chose this resort where he might roam unmolested in pursuit of deer, or search with line and spear for the tribes of speckled trout, which fill the waters of the wilderness.  His only companions in the shape of books, consisted of a worn copy of the “Gospel,” and a work on the piscatory art.  He died alone in his shanty on the first day of the new year, in about the seventieth year of his age.

His body was found lying on his couch, near the fire, his head and shoulders somewhat elevated, and his hands crossed on his breast.

He seemed not to have suffered from the pangs of hunger, for plenty of provisions were in his shanty.

The writer of this article recollects of seeing him at his shanty in June last.  He was then quite feeble from disease, and exposure, and no one expected he would long survive.

He had crawled out to the bridge across the creek, and set his poles for fish the very day our party passed on our journey to the lakes, which lie beyond.

The traveler who passes his shanty the coming summer, will visit his grave on the bluff, he select for his burial.  A rude wooden monument marks the head, and an oar the foot of his last resting place.

He was buried on the 5th inst., by a party from Watson, consisting of Elder Robinson, Peter Kirley, J. Armon, Wm. Glenn, E. Harvey, T. Kirley, F. Robinson and A. Wetmore.

Thus lived and died one of the Hermits of the wilderness.

While the busy throng in crowded cities were reveling in the gay festivities which ushered in the glad New Year, “Jimmey” heard a footstep upon the threshold of his shanty door, and the King of Terrors stood before him; he pulled his cap down over his eyes (for thus he was found) and he was carried across the dark waters.

David O'KEEFE

A Horrible Death – On Saturday night last, David O'Keefe, a night watchman in the tannery of Mr. Morrow at Belfort, in this county, was the victim of an accident which caused his death.  Being alone in the vicinity of the vats containing scalding liquor, his light went out, and a misstep caused him to fall into one of these vats, about eight feet deep, and being nearly two-thirds full of the liquor.  He was not discovered until a half hour or more, at which time his brother happened into the tannery and rescued the unfortunate man.  O'Keefe lingered in the most excruciating agony until Sunday evening, when he died.  He leaves a family, who depended upon his daily labor for their support, in indigent circumstances.

Sad Event
Mr. Charles Ostrander, of Greig, in company with his brother, went out a fishing in the Moose River, on Saturday the 10th inst.  While at Brown’s mill about two miles from Lyonsdale, he undertook to cross over from the dam on a fallen tree.  It seemed that he had been warned not to make the attempt, but he ventured.  His foot slipped, and he was plunged into the swift water, amid the rock below.  Although a swimmer, he was not able to sustain himself in the strong current.  A board was thrown to him, but he was too nearly exhausted to save himself by it and those with him, could not in safety help him.  His body was carried down the stream a short distance and was recovered in about two hours after the event.  Mr. O. leaves a young wife and three small children, who were deprived of an own mothers’ care about one year since.   –Boonville Ledger.  (The Lewis County Republican (Martinsburgh, NY) – Wednesday, September 28, 1853)

Although he commenced in the world poor, and acquired what he possessed by hard labor, yet he had a benevolent heart and a liberal hand.  Not only the Church and cause of God generally, but the poor, were objects of his kindly regard.  In his family he was kind and affectionate, and, in return, highly beloved.  His life was that of the godly man – his death peaceful and happy – and his future state, no doubt, glorious.

In his death, his children and grandchildren are bereft of one whom they truly loved – the Church of a tried and valuable member – and the community of an esteemed citizen.

In view of the disappearance of the generation of men, to which the subject of this brief notice belonged, we may exclaim - “The Fathers, where are they?”  The remains of the deceased were committed to the tomb, in the family burying ground, on the 16th ult., after which an appropriate discourse was delivered from 2d Tim, 4th, 7th and 8th.  Subject - “The Christian Warfare and Final Triumph.”  (The Lewis County Banner (Lowville, NY) – Thursday, December 30, 1858)

D. STANTON

STANTON – In Copenhagen, Nov. 24, 1870, D. Stanton, M.D., in the 57 year of his age.

Dr. Stanton was born in Russia, Herkimer county, N.Y., July 21, 1814.  While about 17 years old, he suffered severely from a “fever sore” on one of his limbs.  By the inducement of his friends he went to Schoharie county to seek medical aid, and under the treatment of Dr. Hase, he was healed.  It was here that he commenced to study medicine with the man who had treated him so successfully.  Part of his time was spent in teaching school, at Dr. Hase's house, where a number of the neighbors' children were also admitted.  At the end of about one year, he returned to his home in Russia, and soon continued his medical studies with D. Wooster of Middleville, Herkimer county.  His practice commenced in Russia where he was soon known as a skillful physician.  In the fall of 1836, he was married to Miss Jemima Topping, of Sloansville, Herkimer county.  In the spring of 1837, he moved to Rutland, Jefferson county.  Here he remained in successful practice unto the fall of 1842 when he came to Copenhagen, and formed a partnership with Dr. Allen, which continued 5 years.  In July 1844 his wife died leaving two children, a son and a daughter.  The daughter died a few years ago in the West.  In 1845, he was married again to Miss Emily Cottrell.  I believe he was the first president of the Jeff. County Eclectic Medical Society, organized some 18 years ago, and has served as one of its officers ever since; and was the president of the society when he died.  He was also an active and honored member of the N.Y. State Eclective Medical Society, and was looked up to as one of its strong men.

Dr. Stanton has been known in this vicinity for many years ans a successful physician.  His practice was extensive, being often called to adjacent counties and the loss in that line will be severely felt.  He was a good citizen and a zealous advocate of every measure of moral reform.  He was an ardent friend of Temperance, being an active member of our Lodge of Good Templars in Copenhagen.  He was a tender parent, an affectionate husband, and a warm friend.

He died of congestion of the lungs and heart.  Everything that could be done in the line of medical treatment and tender care could not turn away the destroyer.  Dr. Allen of this place and Dr. Hace of Adams, served him with all their skill and devotion.  But he continued to sink, and on Thanksgiving day between the hours of 12 and 1 o'clock, in the afternoon Dr. Stanton died.

His brother Rev. F. H. Stanton, of the M. E. Church, was with him constantly during the three last days of his earthly pilgrimage, and under God served to cheer his dying hopes with spiritual consolation.

His funeral was largely attended at the Congregational Church, where Rev. E. W. Jones preached from John 13:7, “What I do thou knowest not now, but thou shall now hereafter.”  He was assisted by Revs. McMaster and Brown.

The Dr. leaves a wife, two sons, (George and Sandford), and on daughter, (Mrs. C. A. Chickering) to mourn their great loss.

May the God of the afflicted sustain the family in their bereavement.

E.A. STEVENSON
Died while at a Health Resort in California, July 7 - San Luis Obispo, Cal., July 7 - Ex Governor E. A. Stevenson of Idaho committed suicide yesterday at Paraiso Springs, a health resort near here. Ex Governor Stevenson arrived at Paraiso Springs on June 5th. He was afflicted with sciatica and was in a helpless condition. His health had improved somewhat and he was able to walk a little. It is supposed that during the night the pain returned, and in desperation he took a large dose of laudnum. He was found unscious in his room and all efforts to revive him failed.

Career as a Public Man
Boise, Ida., July 7 - Special to the Tribune - Ex Governor E. A. Stevenson of Idaho died at Paraiso Springs at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He went there six weeks ago suffering from sciatica, that followed an attack of the grip while he was in Washington last winter. Since going to the springs he had written that at times he was suffering terribly. The first intimation that there was any danger came in a dispatch from dr. Perrault in San Francisco yesterday that he was dying. The body will be embalmed and brought to Boise.

The deceased was born in Lowville, Lewis County, New York in 1825. The family removed to Michigan while he was a child. He lost his father by accident and immediately afterward started to California by sailing vessel from New York. He arrived in San Francisco in December 1848. In California he held a number of positions and was twice elected to the legislature, serving as Speaker to pro tem in 1860. He was Indian agent in California and extensively connected with that branch of the Government in all parts of the state. Governor Stevenson came to Idaho in 1863 and settled at Placerville. He was elected to the Territorial Council in 1866; served in several legislatures and was Speaker of the House of the eighth session. In 1885 he was appointed Governor of Idaho by President Cleveland, serving the full term.
In 1894 he was the Democratic candidate for Governor. The Governor was a prominent Mason and for four years was grand master. He was married in 1859 at Red Bluff, Cal., to Annie N. Orr. The widow and one son, C. C. Stevenson, survive him. The flag on the Capitol is at half-mast in honor of his memory. (Idaho Falls Times, July 11, 1895, page 1, transcribed by Peggy Thompson)

Frederic TRACY

Death of Hon. Frederic P. Tracy

Died, in Lowville, Tuesday evening, October 9th, Hon. Frederic P. Tracy of San Francisco, California, aged 45 years.

Mr. Tracy was chairman of the delegation from California, at the Chicago convention, which was held the 16th of May, he having left San Francisco April 5th.  Since the Chicago convention, he has been visiting his friends and relatives in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Washington, New York and other places, until within the last few weeks, which time he has spent in speaking for Lincoln and Hamlin in various portions of the Northern State.  Mr. Tracy came to Lowville, Saturday, October 6th, to fulfull an appointment the State committee had made for him.  We noticed when he came here that he was utterly worn out with labor and excitement.  - We were informed that he had eaten nothing of any consequence for five days, and all the while was traveling from one place to another, through the rain and mud, in order to meet his engagements.  In order to enable himself to speak he resorted to stimulants, perhaps to excess – but it was only to keep up the “frail tenement,” until he could get through with his speaking and find rest.  He attempted to speak at the Court House, when he was so prostrate with mental and physical exertion that he could hardly stand.  Now we wish to correct the impression, if any has gone abroad – that he was intoxicated with liquor.  Drs. Uhline and Adams, who attended him, say that in their judgment, he was past remedy when he came here; that it was only his iron will which was triumphing over the sufferings of the mind and body.  That the constant round of excitement to which he was subjected – the prostration of the body, without taking any food, his going from place to place through the bad weather, when he ought to have been under the kind care of the physician, all tended to bring on congestion of the brain, of which disease it is supposed he died.

He had good care taken of him while he was sick.  He was constantly visited and all his wants attended to by his brother Masons.  But disease had marked him for its victim, and he gradually faded away, calmly as goes down the sitting sun.  Mr. Tracy was one of the great throng who went to California in 1849, from Connecticut.  Since he has been in San Francisco, he has maintained a high position at the bar.  He was one of the founders and leaders of the Republican party in that young and vigorous State, and had made many eloquent and logical speeches in behalf of its principles.  He has a wife and three children in San Francisco.

Mr. Tracy was a man of great natural ability, well adorned by cultivation; of fine form, noble brow and eagle eye.  He was a man in every sense of the term.  He seemed to gain every one to his friendship by his geniality and kindness of heart.  And although at times his mind wandered, yet many were the noble sentiments he uttered while prostrate on his bed.  But his large, generous heart has ceased to beat, the eloquent lip quivers no longer with electric eloquence, and the eagle eye sparkles no more with the fires of genius.

Farewell brother, God in his infinite mercy, will take care of your bereaved wife and children, and we hope and trust they will feel that he was kindly cared for, though far away from home, and that his last moments were tearfully watched by friends and brothers, who crowded around his bedside.

Lowville Lodge of Free and Accepted Masons, held a special meeting, and appointed a committee to draft resolutions appropriate to the occasion, and also a committee of arrangements to take care of the funeral arrangements.

His friends have been telegraphed to and will probably be her to-night.

One of the local leaders of the democracy in Northern New York, Dewitt C. West, died suddenly at his home in Lowville yesterday morning of heart disease, in the fifty-fifth year of his age. He was in his store at ten o'clock on the previous night, when he appeared to be in a jovial mood. He represented Carthage, Jefferson County in the Legislature when William H. Ludlow was Speaker. He was a candidate for office several times, but for all his popularity and influence never succeeded in carrying his district. He was always to be seen at the democratic State conventions and was a shining light in local politics and at all gatherings where the politicians of the State assembled. Mr. West opposed the nomination of Governor Robinson last fall but also opposed Tammany withdrawing from the Convention. He was sent as a delegate to several national democratic conventions. Mr. West was one of the earliest advocates of the Black River and Utica Railway, which was reorganized in 1860 under the name of the Utica and Black River road. The road runs from utica to Ogdensburg, and opened up all the country in the northwestern part of the State. Mr. West was a director for many years, and became its president. Some years ago he changed his residence from Carthage to Lowville, Lewis County, where he had ever since resided. (New York Hearld, September 28, 1880, page 4, transcribed by Peggy Thompson)

Neibergall, of Lowvile, took place and their married life has been passed in Turin.  Mr. Wilbur was very fond of this home and loved best to sit by his own fireside with the family circle.  He was a great reader and the choicest books from the best authors found in him a warm and ardent friend.  He was also a patriotic man and the stars and stripes found a welcome place in his home.  For the wife and daughter, Elizabeth, aged six years, who survive, tenderest sympathy from many friends is expressed.  There also survive a daughter by his former marriage, Mrs. Clifford Ormsbee, of Syracuse; four sisters, Mrs. Ursula Root and Mrs. John Briany, of Sanford Corners, Mrs. Eugene Cutler, of Lebanon, N.H., Mrs. George Latimer, of Masonville, and one brother, Rev. William W. Wilbur, of Union Springs, N.Y.  The funeral services were largely attended from his late home on Sunday afternoon at four o’clock and were in charge of Rev. Richard H. Hughes.  Prayer was offered by Rev. John H. Strong.  In connection with the remarks made by Rev. Mr. Hughes, he also read the beautiful line of a favorite poem of the  deceased, “ The Two Mysteries,” and the hymns, “Nearer My God to Thee,” and “My Jesus as Thou Wilt,” with piano accompaniment softly played by Mrs. Kidder.  The floral offerings were beautiful.  The remains were taken to Syracuse on the 7:35 train Monday morning, accompanied by the family, and laid to read in the family plot of Oakwood cemetery.  The friends from a distance to attend the funeral services in Turin were Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Ormsbee, Syracuse; Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Johnson, Mr. and Mrs. Peter McGovern and daughter, Lowville; Mr. and Mrs. J. P. Babcock and daughter, Boonville; Mrs. H. D. Babcock, Deer River; Mr. and Mrs. Charles F.

Betsey WILKENSEN

At Turin on the evening of Friday, the 13th ult., Betsey, consort of John Wilkinsen, in the eighty-fourth year of her age.

The subject of this sketch, seems to deserve something more than a passing notice at our hands.  She was born in the town of Pawlings, Dutchess county, N.Y., Dec. 8, 1777.  Married to John Wilkinsen, Dec. 13, 1795.  Moved to Whitestown, Onida Co., April 1797, and the following year, in March 1798 to Turin, Lewis Co., her last residence, consequently she will have resided on the same premises 66 years next March.  At that early period of our country there were no roads cut or laid out in town, and but few in the southern part of the county.  For the last few miles of their journey, their effects, together with two small children were transported on a hand sled, going and returning many times, following their way by marked trees – the wife traveling on foot and sometimes with a babe in her arms, had to crawl over logs and wade through creeks on their way.  They moved into a log cabin, without any door, windows, or floor, - split logs hollowed out for a roof and not chinked at all.  Such was the scarcity of bread stuffs, for the want of mills, that they were frequently obliged to go to Whitestown to get milling done, and sometimes were compelled to go several miles to corn in a stump mortar to make bread.

The old lady says that those were her happiest days, that they enjoyed more solid happiness than in after years – nothing but friends and friendship was known among them – all tried to help instead of injuring each other as now.  The old gentleman passed to his grave some five years ago, in the 88 year of his age.  They have raised a family of eleven children – 8 sons and 3 daughter – five sons have passed away, leaving still living three sons and three daughters.  They have always been industrious, frugal and enterprising and also all have ever maintained an unblemished reputation.  The old lady has for some fifty years been a consistent and worthy professor of Religion of the Baptist order.  They have passed to their repose at a ripe old age, honored and respected by all – peace to their ashes.

The funeral was attended on Sunday the 15th inst., at the Methodist Church at Turin, and a very appropriate discourse delivered by the Rev. Mr. Ball of Lowville, from a passage selected by the old lady from Rev. 7 ch. and part of the 10v. “These are they which came out of great tribulation and have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.”  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, October 16, 1861)

Funeral services will be held at the house to-morrow (Thursday) at 2 o'clock p.m.  A sermon will be preached at the Presbyterian Church, at 10 ½ a.m., Sabbath next.  (The Journal And Republican (Lowville, NY) – Wednesday, May 4, 1864)
