Word was received in Lyons yesterday morning of the death of Mrs. Jane Guilfoos at her home near Savannah. Mrs. Guilfoos underwent a very successful operation in this village some two months ago and made an extraordinarily rapid recovery. Before entirely recovering strength Mrs. Guilfoos attempted too much and suffered a decline. After returning to her home near Savannah she never recovered strength and gradually sank. Mrs. Guilfoos was well known in Lyons and vicinity as Mrs. Pulley. For years she resided in the section now known as Slaterville and was often employed as a trained nurse. Shortly after the death of her husband she married again and removed to Savannah. Her death will be sincerely regretted by the many friends she had in Lyons and vicinity.

The sad announcement of the death of Mrs. Valentine Leidinger of Fairville, who died Wednesday, September 16th, was heard with expressions of deepest regret by her many friends, not only in the community in which she lived, but many other places. She was taken severely ill the 26th day of last December with stomach and bowel trouble, and rallied from this, and was about the house as usual, leaving her somewhat weak, but before she had ___ recovered was taken ill again. She continued in this condition for ___ weeks, being quite smart, then ____confined to her bed, but never complained of having very much pain.

Her last illness confined her to .... [some text cut off at bottom of page/column]

[next column] and contrary to all that loving hands, and physicians could do, she passed peacefully away, at the age of 71 years.

Deceased was born in Wurtemberg, Germany, in 1832. her maiden name being Magdalena Regina Ruff. She came to this country in 1852, at the age of 20 years, taking up her residence at East Newark.

In 1858 she was married to Valentine Leidinger of Fairville, where she has since resided, having one of the pleasantest homes in that locality, with everything to enjoy life with, husband, wife and children fully devoted to each other.

Her home was a place where Christian ministries delighted to go. They were always greeted with the kind of welcome which made them feel that in her they could find sympathy and words of encouragement in their work. She was always kind to the poor, and will be missed not alone by her family, but by all.

She had been an earnest Christian and a member of the Presbyterian church for thirty-two years, and, as her pastor has worded it, the mother of the church. A Godly woman has gone to her rest.

Besides a bereaved husband she leaves five daughters. Eight children were born to this union, three having gone before.

The surviving daughters are Miss Louise, who remains at home and who has given all of her time to her mother, watching and caring for her since the beginning of her illness, Mrs. George Clark of Phelps, Mrs. Charles Frey and Mrs. George F. Rowe of Fairville and Mrs. Colie Pultz of Newark. There are also nine grandchildren. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, September 20th. The day was a beautiful one- perfect in every way - and a vast multitude gathered to pay their last respects to one they loved.

The pastor, Rev. Rice, assisted by Rev. Wilson, conducted the services. The text, which was chosen by the deceased, was found in St. John, 14-2, "In my Father's house are many mansions; If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for your." Also 2 Cor. 5-1, "For we knew that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, a house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."

The floral pieces were many and beautiful. The bearers were four of the grand-children. The remains were interred in a beautiful spot in Fairville cemetery.

She has passed away;
Like a gentle breath,
And her eyes are closed with the
sleep of death;
The leaves on the trees will flutter
and fall
And the drifting snows will cover all,
But she will peacefully, calmly rest,
Forever happy,
By angels blest.

Our population has decreased considerable this Winter. Two deaths to record this week: those of Aaron Brewer and Mrs. Isaac DeLelys. Mr. Brewer, who was a retired mechanic and who was well-to-do had been a conspicuous figure on our street for several years. In the morning he had been after his mail and did some shopping as was his custom; he came home where his niece, Mrs. Wraight was. (Mr. Wraight being gone to the woods several miles distant.) He went out again, did not return to dinner, was still gone at supper time, when after supper Mr. and Mrs. Wraight both going to a small shed in the rear of the house found him hanging to a rope. Having adjusted the rope about his neck he made death doubly sure by first shooting himself in the head. The whole neighborhood was soon aroused and Coroner Carr notified but did not arrive until 11 o'clock when the body was taken down. Following so soon on another suicide no little consternation was manifested among our people. A note in his pocket was sufficient the Coroner decided that no inquest was necessary. About the only reason given for the act being that he was to have been married in a few days. Interment was at Pultneyville, Thursday.

Was Driving Village Fire Team
Which He Had Trained When
Front End Board of Wagon Fell
and Lagner Was Thrown Out.

Newark, June 5.- One of the saddest death occurring in this village in some time was that of Herbert Lagner, aged 29 years, the popular driver and trainer of the Newark Fire Department team, which occurred in the corporation gravel pit just before noon to-day. It has been customary to use the team on street work when not required for fire purposes, and Lagner was drawing gravel from the pit. He was making his last trip just before dinner when the fatality occurred.

After turning the bend in Maple avenue the horses started on a run, but it was thought that they were not frightened as it had been Lagner's custom to speed them at will. Unfortunately, however, the front end board of the wagon dropped out, depriving the driver of a foothold. The horses continued their course until the gravel pit was reached, when Lagner succeeded in turning them into the pit. The horses took a turn to the left. Witnesses allege that at this time Lagner was holding to the reins with all his strength but that he had been pulled off from the wagon boards on to the shiffletrees. As the horses rounded the curve in the bed Lagner lost his hold and was thrown, the front wheel passing over his body. The horses continued their course until stopped by a loaded wagon in the other end of the bed. The unfortunate man gasped only three or four times and expired in the arms of workmen. An examination proved that his neck and back had been broken. The remains were taken to the undertaking rooms of John Stuerwald, and the funeral services will be held from the Presbyterian Church at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon.

Deceased had been a resident of Newark for a number of years. He was born and brought up in the town of Williamson. Deceased was a widower.

The village purchased the fire team about a year ago and he was hired to train it. By his perseverance and interest in the animals he brought them up to a high degree of efficiency. He is survived by a brother, Abram Lagner, of Williamson, three half brothers, Anthony Lagner, of Williamson, and Peter Lagner, of Rochester, and Cornelius Vanderlyke, of Ontanrio; a sister, Mrs. Anthony Verdow, of Newark, and three half sisters, Mrs. Jacob Sunderville, of Newark, Mrs. Minnie Melee, of Ontario, and Mrs. Mary Holstein, of Rochester.


Philip Boumann Instantly Killed From Cave-in of Gravel.

Lyons, June 5.- Philip Boumann, a 15-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Boumann, of East Lyons, was instantly killed shortly before noon to-day, by the accidental caving in of a gravel bank under which he was resting. Yesterday morning the father, who lives on the John S. Jordan farm, sent Philip and his elder brother Ernest to the gravel pit to get a load. After the load had been nearly all shoveled on the wagon, Philip sat down to rest a minute.

Without a moment's warning, the bank caved in, covering him. The lad was shoveled out, but his neck had been fractured and he was lifeless. Deceased is survived by a father, mother, brothers Ernest and William, and sisters the Misses Rose and Lizzie, the latter living at No. 13 Sibley place, Rochester.

Two Men Drowned at Newark.

One of the saddest drowning accidents that has happened in Wayne county for a long time occurred at the upper lock at Lockville Wednesday. The particulars as far as can be ascertained are as follows: When Mitchell Chadwick arrived at the lock at 1 o'clock he missed Fred Young and George Bender, a son of Michael Bender, of Lyons, who tend the lock from 7 o'clock in the afternoon until 6 o'clock in the morning, and when his partner arrived they made immediate search for the missing men. About 1:30 they discovered the hats of both men floating upon the water in the locks. Help was at once summoned and the water drawn from the level and about 5 o'clock both men were found, one at the west end of the lock and the other about thirty feet farther down. How the accident occurred will probably never be known, but the supposition is that Young fell in and while Bender was trying to rescue him he also fell in and both were drowned, as Bender had been arranging the fire and the cover was open when Chadwick arrived. Young leaves a wife and three children and Bender leaves a wife and two children his wife being a daughter of Fred. Thoms, of Alloway. Both were insured for $2,000. Edward Parkhurst also fell in while searching for the bodies, but was rescued by Chadwick. Bender's funeral takes place to-day from the church at East Newark and his remains will be brought to Lyons for interment. - Sentinel.

Death of a Former Wayne County Man.

Associated Press Dispatch.

D. H. Denton, a wealthy and prominent member of the Chicago Board of Trade, fell dead Saturday on the Washington Park race course. He was just raising a gun to his shoulder for his shot in a pigeon contest. The cause of death was apoplexy. Mr. Denton was 60 years old. He went to Chicago from Palmyra, N.Y.

Mrs. Gamaliel Case.

Mrs. Roxana Case at the home of her daughter, Mrs. S. Tetor, in Dundee, on the 5th inst., passed away after 75 years of life, fifty-seven as the wife of Gamaliel Case of this town, and sixty-three as a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church.

She was born in Onondaga, N.Y., daughter of Benjamin D. Gardner. The family removed to Sodus when she was about eight years of age. Her father was a native of Rhode Island. Some of the Gardner family lived on Long Island and from it came the name of Gardner's Island on the East of Long Island. Her mother was or Puritan ancestry, born in the vicinity of Plymouth, Mass. She inherited excellent qualities of character which have made her life exemplary throughout.

The funeral was attended, on Thursday of last week, at the M. E. Church of this place, by a large concourse of people. The services were interesting, and impressive. The music was well selected and beautiful. The sermon by Rev. J. B. Foote from the text, "Jesus Only," impressed the hearers that Jesus alone is the sure foundation for the best character. The Woman's Christian Temperance Union of this place, of which Mrs. Case was one of the organizers and of which she had been a member continuously through nearly 20 years, were present in a body, and a floral tribute from each was laid upon a table at the foot of the casket as they passed to their seats.

The bearers, by her request, were six of her grandsons, young men from 18 to 23(?), Howard Case, Charles Case, Wm. B. Morse, Jr., Charles Morse, John Morse, of Rochester, and James Case, of Sodus. Others of the family present were Mrs. W. B. Morse, of Rochester; Mrs. S. Tetor, of Dundee; and Byron J. Case, of this place, and their families; also Mrs. Rev. C. Z. Case and her two sons and one daughter, of Rochester. James B. Case, of St. Louis, was detained by illness of his wife. One son, Rev. Charles Z. Case, of the East Genesee Conference, and one daughter, Hannah Case, have died. One nephew was present, Rev. H. Gardner, of Butler, and niece from Grant City, Mo., Mrs. Belle Gardner France.

Her life and character were worthy of imitation. Of active mind she became intelligent. Of noble aspirations she became a true worshiper of God, a woman of integrity and honor, a faithful and genial and helpful wife; a thoughtful, self-sacrificing mother, and an ardent and uniformly faithful church member. To her husband she was, so he says, what the Ark of the Covenant was to the Jewish people, wherever it was the Lord gave His blessing.

As a mother she was faithful and devoted, giving her strength and energy to the training and education of her children, both in spiritual and intellectual lines. She spared no pains that they might become strong and useful men and women in church and society.

When in more advance years, her children being grown and able to take to work for the good of others. The native energy and earnestness of her character led her out into lines of work which few are so well qualified to perform, and fewer still are willing to undertake.

She was appointed by the W. C. T. U. to be Sup't. of Scientific Temperance Instruction in the Town of Sodus, and in that office she waited nearly every school district and presented the pledge in nearly every Sunday School in the Town.


WHEREAS- God in His providence has called home Mrs. Gamaliel Case, one of the busy workers and one of the original members of the Women's Christian Temperance Union, of Sodus. Therefore

Resolved- That while we mourn our loss, we rejoice in her gain and pledge renewed energy in the temperance work.

We also extend our heart-felt sympathy to her bereaved companion and sorrowing children, and commend them to Christ, the source of all consolation.

Lyons, Oct. 30- The death of Jesse Danes occurred Saturday night at the Wayne County Home. He was born in this village 75 years ago. He had been in good health up to a few days ago, when he suffered an attack of heart trouble, which resulted in his death. He leaves no relatives.

The 1860 census of Lyons lists canal boatman Jesse Danes 33 b. PA, Elizabeth Danes 23 b. NY and Ida Danes 2, residing with Maria Ryan 43, and 4 teenagers of Smith surname. The 1870 Lyons census lists boatman Jesse Danes 46 b. NY, cook Caroline Danes 31 b. Canada, Ella Danes 8/12 and Charles M. Danes 11. The 1880 census of Lyons lists cooper Jessie Danes 49 b. NY, wife Annie Danes 46 b. Canada, and four children John W. Danes 21, "Sires" W. Danes 18, George Danes 11, and Maud Danes 5. The only Danes located in Wayne County in the 1900 census was farm laborer Jesse Dane age 70, b. May 1830, married, listed as an "employee" residing with the family of Marcus J. Howard. Mr. Danes was erroneously listed in the 1910 census as "Jesse Dean," which in turn was erroneously interpreted by the ancestry census indexer as "Jesse Dran." Mr. Danes was an "inmate" of the Wayne County Home, age 73, single, b. NY, father b. NY, mother b. PA, no occupation. There are no Danes listed in the Wayne County Historian's Office cemetery lists, nor in the newspaper database, and other members of the households over the years are elusive in the census.

Stillman J. Grandy, Veteran of Civil War Dies at Home of Daughter.

Stillman Johnson Grandy died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Nellie Inslee. No. 7,743 Fifteenth avenue. N. W., Seattle, Wash., June 9. Had he lived till August, he would have been 93. Mr. Grandy was born near Richardson's corners, Aug. 6, 1834, his father having been the late Benjamin Grandy. He was the last survivor of a long-lived family. Among his sisters, now deceased, were Mrs. Robert Wolven, Mrs. Abram Chase and Mrs. Abram Hill, of Wolcott. The late William Grandy, of Westbury, was a Brother. He was a carpenter by trade, and years ago helped to build the Wolcott Falls mill, the old gristmill at Red Creek, and the original large barn on the N. W. Tompkins, now the Albert Wells farm, just south of Wolcott. When the Civil war broke out he was one of the original members and helped to organize Company G, 132nd N. Y. Infantry, which later was merged with the Ninth Heavy Artillery. He held the rank of first sergeant. Among his favorite stories of the war was of seeing and conversing with Lincoln in the forts about Washington. This meant much to him. Mr. Grandy was twice married. His first wife lived only a short time, and about 1867, he married Mrs. Annie E. Greene, of Oswego County. Two children survive, Frank E. Grandy and Mrs. Nellie Inslee, both of Seattle, besides 7 grandchildren and 7 greatgrandchildren. Mr. Grandy went to Michigan many years ago and in 1908 followed the children to Seattle, where his wife died five years ago, since which he had lived with his daughter. He was a fine old man, a Mason, honest, upright and until the last year or so had worked his garden and done much about the place. He had intestinal "flu" late in April and seemingly recovered but was too weak to rally and was in bed much of the last two weeks of his life, though no one thought the end so near. He passed quietly away in sleep.

(2 errors... I think the 132nd should be 138th. and Mrs. Abram Hill might be Mrs. Erastrus T. Hill)

THE RECORD (Sodus, N.Y.) Aug. 29, 1935
Born In Holland, Most of His Long And Useful Life Was Passed In America-
He Served Many Parishes of Reformed Church

Rev. Simeon Hogenboom died Wednesday morning after a prolonged illness. He ws 77 years old on June 7th. Born in Haamstede, Holland, he came to America when a lad of 11. The family settled at Clymer and he received his early education in the schools of that village. He then studied for the ministry at Hope College, Holland, Michigan. He served Reformed churches in Ontario, Pultneyville, Marion, Sodus, Newark, Whitesboro, Kalamazoo, Mich., and Cleveland, Ohio. He was pastor in the latter city twice and his last pastorate was there. He closed his work in 1926 and returned from Cleveland to Sodus, where he purchased a home and planned to spend the remainder of his life. He is survived by his wife, Mrs. Nettie Hogenboom; a son, Rev. Marvin Hogenboom of Auburn; two daughters, Mrs. Edward Barnum of Scranton, Pa., and Mrs. Fay LaRock of Sodus; five grandchildren, Mrs. Frances Buys of Sodus Point, Miss Joyce and Robert Barnum of Scranton and the Misses Shirley and Marilyn LaRock of Sodus; two great grandchildren, Bruce and Barbara Buys; and one brother, George Hogenboom of Clymer.

Harold Hesselink, pastor of the Sodus Reformed Church, and the Rev. G.H. Hospers of East Williamson, a retired minister and long time friend of Rev. Hogenboom, will conduct the services. Rev. Hogenboom was a man of keen intellect and fine education and greatly devoted to the service of the church. His long life has been spent in furthering the ideals to which he adhered and his family have the sympathy of the community in which he elected to spend the last days of a useful life.

Late Stillman Grandy Remembered for His Exploits
and for His High Character.

Editor Lake Shore News:

The article in last week's News telling of the death of Stillman J Grandy at Seattle, Wash. recalled many boyhood memories of that fine man and soldier. He was a great hunter and fisherman, and used to delight to visit Port bay with the late Hezekish Easton. I have heard them tell many stories of their exploits with rod and gun. - and they were true stories, too - when it was possible to catch more fish and shoot more ducks in an hour than now could be secured in a week. Back before the Civil War when Mr. Grandy was not yet a voter he is said to have secured over a thousand wild pigeons in a single day. This was done by means of a net, which was sprung over the birds as they huddled on the ground after grain that had been scattered in a smooth place, the owner of the net being hidden and holding a line leading to the spring which was pulled when the birds were in the right place and in sufficient numbers to be caught. These were the famous "passenger pigeons." Now extinct, and I believe this was on their last great flight through this section in or about 1852. The late Giles Fitch, of East Port Bay Street if I remember aright, was the owner of the net that Mr. Grandy used. He also was said to have shot the last wild turkey in this section, somewhere near Glenmark. That also was before the Civil War. It was a delight to talk with him and Mr. Easton. They always had something of interest to tell a boy, and nothing was ever said to do a boy harm. They had high ideals and both were splendid men.
