NAPLES NY FEB 4, 1891
John Briggs was born in Milo, Yates county, April 5, 1802, and died at Bloods, January 26, 1891. He was one of a family of nine children, only two of whom, Mrs. Ann Bartholomew, of this place and Hon. W.S. Briggs, of Penn Yan, survive him. He was a grand speciman of the early pioneers who are rapidly passing away. In his early life he submitted to great privations with heroic fortitude, but always preserved amidst these hardships the sweet amenities of life, and left grand legacies of a good Christian character. He retained his mental and physical powers far beyond many of his years, and was emphatically a grand, noble Christian man, loved and respected by all who knew him. In May 1825, he married Miss Ann A. Green, and to them twelve children were born, seven of whom survive him. In 1840 he moved to Naples and settled in Garlinghouse where he resided for more than forty years, filling many responsible positions both in church and State. His funeral was held at the schoolhouse January 28, Rev J.H. Masten officiating, assisted by the Revds, S. Wright and A. Norton. The unusually large concourse of people at his funeral was a marked attestation of his worth. His remains rest in our cemetery (Garlinghouse) here beside those of his companion who preceeded him twenty years ago to the "Land Beyond." [Submitted by a friend of Genealogy]

DEATH OF CHARLES GLADDING
A cablegram received at Lincoln on Thursday of last week brought the announcement of the death of Charles Gladding which occurred at Rome, Italy, on the day previous. The news was entirely unexpected and was a shock not only to the people of Lincoln, but also to those of the entire state for Mr. Gladding was known from one end of the commonwealth to the other as the senior member of the great pottery firm of Gladding, McBean & Co., whose works are situated at Lincoln in this county. We have not heard the particulars as to his death, but the cablegram stated that it occurred suddenly while out for a drive. Mr. Gladding had for some years been a great sufferer from asthma, and it was partly on this account that he went on the European trip some months ago from which he was destined to never return alive. The Lincoln News-Messenger furnishes the following synopsis of Mr. Gladding's life:
Charles Gladding was born in Ontario County, New York, April 28, 1818. His parents died when he was very young. When he was fourteen years old, he went to work on the Erie Canal, and after a few years became the owner of a boat. From New York, he went to Ohio where he was interested in the lime business, and subsequently located in Chicago, Illinois, engaging in the manufacture of sewer pipe. He was residing in Chicago when the war broke out, and during 1861 and the early part of 1862, he devoted much time and money to the raising and equipping of volunteer troops. He was very efficient in the organization of Company K, Seventy-second Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and was elected and commissioned First Lieutenant and accompanied the regiment after its organization to Paducah and Columbus, Ky. He took part in the expedition to and the capture of Island No. 10 under General Pope and was afterward assigned to the brigade of General Crocker in the Army of the Tennessee with which he participated in General Grant's campaign to Holly Springs, Miss., and later in the Lake Providence and Yazoo River expeditions. He also served during the campaign before Vickburg, took part in the final assault on that town, and was present at the surrender of General Pemberton. After this, he made an expedition to Natchez and was in a number of expeditions against guerillas. His service in the swamp of the Mississippi so enfeebled his health that he was forced to resign on September 19, 1863.Early in the spring of 1875, he came to California and while in the state obtained a piece of clay found in the Lincoln coal mine which he took to Chicago. The sample proved suitable for sever pipe, etc., a company was formed, and he returned and established the pottery works the same year under the firm name of Gladding, McBean & Co. The pottery increased in size rapidly under the management of Mr. Gladding, until it became the largest works of the kind west of the Rocky Mountains, its growth and prosperity being large due to his thorough knowledge of the business and never-ceasing energy.
The News-Messenger very truthfully adds that in the death of Mr. Gladding, its community suffers an irreparable loss as he was a true friend to Lincoln in every sense of the word; and although he was obliged to devote the strictest attention to his own business connections, he was never so absorbed in self that he could not give liberal support to every worthy enterprise, and it can well be said that he unselfishly laid the foundation for the prosperity which Lincoln today enjoys. He was generous to a fault and always responded freely when called upon for aid for a charitable purpose. Deceased was a member of the Loyal Legion, and of George H. Thomas Post, GAR, and Gold Hill Lodge F&A of Lincoln. He leaves a widow and three grown children—two sons and a daughter—whose sorrow is shared by the public generally.

The venerable GAD SCOTT died at his residence (which is also that of his son Albert Scott) last friday, 16th, at the advanced age of 87 years and 9 months. The deceased had been a resident of Geneva a little more than forty years, previous to which he lived several years at Dresden. He was one of the most faithful, exemplary and active members of the M.E. Church, taking a prominent part in exhortation and prayer whenever laymen were priviledged to be heard in the services. Fluent in speech, earnest and impressive in invocation to God, it was ever impressive and profitable to the soul to hear him. Mr. Scott was very abstemious in his habits throughout his entire life. It was his proud boast that intoxicating beverages of no kind had ever passed his lips, nor did he know the taste of tobacco in any form. To such abstinence and moderation in everything he attributed his great longevity and uniform good health. He was ill only two or three months prior to the final summons hence. The machinery of his organism had utterly worn out. The grim messenger when he came found him fully prepared to follow. The deceased was the father of twelve children, just one half of whom, three sons and three daughters, survive. His funeral was held last Sunday, his beloved pastor Rev. W.H. Giles, officiating. Internment at Dresden.
