The following extracts taken from a letter written to the family will explain itself. The letter was dated Houston, Texas, March 25, 1893 (sic): "About 10 o'clock yesterday (Saturday) morning, Charlie took his pistol, a 32 Colt, out by the house to clean, as it was rusty; he had taken all but one cartridge out and that stuck. In his effort to get it out it some way it was discharged, the ball going through his heart killing him instantly. At the time he was talking to his hired man. A young man who was visiting him his wife and cousin (the writer) were also near. An inquest was held and the verdict was accidental death. They took the body out to Devers and the writer, with an undertaker brought it to Houston this morning. Have done every thing that can be done and am waiting to hear from Newark. Every one here has been very kind." Since the above, a telegram has been received stating the body will reach Newark at 9:15 A. M. to-day. The funeral services will be held tomorrow.

A Third May Die - Terrible Crossing Accident at Clyde.

While driving a cutter across the New York Central railroad crossing a few hundred feet east of the Clyde station at 10:45 o'clock last Friday night James Judson Goodell, aged 20, his brother Grover, aged 20, and their aunt, Mrs. Kate White, aged 46(?), were struck by Train No. 21, west bound, the New York and Chicago mail.

James Goodell and Mrs. White were instantly killed and Grover Goodell was so badly injured that it is feared he cannot survive. Mrs. White was thrown seventy-five feet and the boy about fifty.

The engineer of the train was James Harris and Frank Lee was the conductor.

The train was late when pulling into Clyde. The engineer did not see the people on the track and the first he knew of the accident was when he saw the bodies flying past the cab of the engine.

The train was stopped and the three victims were carried to the Clyde station.

The accident was the second this train had that night. An unknown man was struck and instantly killed at Minoa earlier in the evening.

Grover's right leg was broken above the knee and the left below the knee and his lung punctured. Coroner Thatcher of Newark was summoned and appointed an inquest for 8:30 a. m. January 16th.

The bodies of the two killed were interred at 2 p.m. yesterday in the Dutch Reform Cemetery about seven miles south of Clyde, and was the largest funeral ever held in this vicinity. [NOTE: this cemetery is in Seneca County.]

Wolcott, Feb. 14- A very sad death occurred this afternoon at 5:30 (?) o'clock, when Charles Sherman, a lad 16 years of age, passed away at the home of Mr. and Mrs. T. G. Henderson, on Draper street. The young man was the son of Mrs. Hannah Sherman, of Rose, and last September came to live at the Henderson home in order to secure the advantages of a high school education. He was remarkably bright and a hard worker, paying his own way through school.

He was in his usual health until Thursday, when retiring from school at noon he complained of a slight pain, but returned to school in the afternoon. As he did not improve a physician was summoned and it was pronounced a case of appendicitis and an operation was performed Saturday afternoon. The attack had advanced too far to admit of recovery and he sank slowly to the end.

The students of the high school and the community in general are deeply moved over the sudden loss.

The following dispatch to the Democrat & Chronicle from Phelps is of interest to many Newark friends:

Phelps, Sept. 21- Mrs. Betsy Roberts, an old resident of Phelps, passed away this evening after an illness of twelve weeks. Mrs. Roberts was the widow of William M. Roberts, who died five years ago at the age of 80. She was born in the town of Lyons, April 6, 1842, and was therefore 82 years of age. Her brothers, Silas D. Burroughs, of Geneva, James H. Burroughs, of Newark, and a sister, Mrs. Melissa Armitage, of Newark, and her children, Rev. Stanley B. Roberts, D. D. of MInneapolis, Howard N. Roberts, of Oberlin, Ohio, Mrs. Inez M. Meeker, of Penn Yan, and Linda P. Roberts, of this place, survive her.

Mrs. Roberts had lived for 52 years in the town of Phelps. She was a member of the Presbyterian church.


Many friends were shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mrs. Anna Elizabeth Feller at her home on Madison street September 21st, after an illness of only one day.

Mrs. Feller was born seventy-four years ago in Red Hook, N. Y., the daughter of Peter D. and Catherine Feller.

She came west with her family in 1851, and lived in the town of Palmyra for many years. She was married to Harmon Feller in Palmyra Dec. 19, 1866, who died in 1878. In 1883 Mrs. Feller came to Newark, where she has since lived.

She was a member of the Universalist Church, was esteemed by her many friends, and dies lamented by all who knew her. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. M. M. Norton, with whom she made her home, and two brothers, Lewis W. Feller of the town of Palmyra, and John E. Feller of Newark. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon at the residence, Rev. C. Palmatier officiating.

As briefly noted in last week's Gazette, Jacob P. Lusk died Sept. 17 at his home north of East Palmyra aged 75 years, after an illness of nine days with congestion of the lungs. The funeral was held Thursday, Rev. C. W. Scovel of Newark officiating, and the remains were brought to Newark for burial in Willow Avenue Cemetery. A large number of neighbors attended the service at the house, and Newark friends gathered at the grave to witness the committal service. East Palmyra neighbors of the deceased acted as bearers.

From the very first beginnings of this town and village the name of Lusk has been indelibly stamped on their history. Jeremiah Lusk was one of the first settlers along the creek. His sons, Jacob P., (father of the subject of this sketch) Isaac and Phillip, became the owners of the tract of land on which Newark village now stands. Jacob P. built the first road to the creek, the foundation being underbrush. In 1820 Joseph MIller came here from Herkimer to build a section of the canal. Knowing that a basin would be built here, he bought 100 acres of land of Jacob Lusk, near the canal, 96 acres being south of it, and started a village, calling it Miller's Basin, which was the name of the village for a number of years. This 100 acre tract was surveyed and platted by Hiram Tibbett. Jacob Lusk gave the land on which the first school house was built. Phillip Lusk, a brother was one of the first storekeepers, having a store at Nimham's Corners, and an ashery. His sons ran a foundry.

Jacob P. Luck, Jr., just deceased, was born seventy-five years ago on his father's farm in the northern part of the village on Pearl St., now known as the Wm. Peirson farm, a part of which forms the fair grounds. He grew to manhood there, and finally owned the farm, then one of the largest and best in Wayne county. At the age of 35 he sold the farm and went into the furniture and undertaking business. This is the business now owned by J. Stuerwald & Son, and was then located in what has since been known as the Gillson Hotel. Mr. Lusk was also interested in the livery business with H. H. Stansell, the firm being Lusk & Stansell. Thirty years ago Mr Lusk sold out his property in Newark and bought the Hunting Post farm north of East Palmyra, where he has since lived. He had a pleasant home there, and had made a success of specialized farming, his grapes and other small fruits being famous in the markets.

In 1851, Mr. Lusk joined the gold seekers in California, and had many exciting experiences in the camps and with the Indians during the three years he was west. After his return he was married on Jan. 10, 1855, to Eleanor A. Griffith of Phelps, who survives him.

When the war broke out Mr. Lusk's three brothers, Isaac, Thurlow and Lycurgus, went to the front and served with honor. He wanted to go, but his father prevailed on him to stay at home and help take care of the families of those who went.

Mr. Lusk was a man of gentle, genial manner, generous of money and sympathy, and a kind indulgent husband and father. He was a member of the Newark Presbyterian church, a man of honor and integrity, respected by all, loved by those who knew his best qualities. It has been said of him that he had not an enemy. It does not need to be said that his friends were legion. There are many who will deeply miss his cordial, pleasant greeting, and his home hospitality. Few men had more warm friends, and all will miss him. To his immediate family the death seems almost irreparable.

Deceased was a staunch Republican all his life. He was a supervisor of this town for several terms, and Commissioner of Highways in Palmyra for four years.

He is survived by his wife, two sons, Wm. B., of Phillips, Montana, and Isaac M. 2d, who lives on the farm; two daughters, Mrs. Chas. Blair of Jersey City, and Mrs. John Gallegher of this town. There are five grand-childrem (sic) and one great grand-child. He is survived also by a sister, Mrs. E. Thompson of Chicago, and a brother, Isaac M. Lusk of Michigan, to whom he made a long visit last winter.

ELIZA, wife of Thomas Gardner, and daughter of James and Elizabeth Collins, departed this life on the 19th of January last, in the town of Sodus, Wayne Co., N.Y., in the 32d year of her age.

Our sister seemed to be moved by principle from her very childhood. For obedience to parents, sweetness of temper, industry and neatness, she was rarely equalled. At the age of fifteen, at a camp-meeting in Sodus, after a very severe struggled in most earnest and agonizing prayer, she obtained peace with God, through our Lord and Savior (sic), Jesus Christ.-

She soon attached herself to the Methodist E. Church, of which she was a worthy member till she left the Church militant for the Church triumphant. About three years after her conversion she became concerned for a deeper work of grace, which I believe she obtained.-

For some years after this her soul breathed nothing but love, perfect love. She was so conscientious, so circumspect, so watchful, so prayerful, and so devoted, that her life seemed to say to all who saw her, "so follow me as I follow Christ." She was united in marriage to Mr. Thomas Gardner in the spring of 1839, who with a little daughter about five years old, are left to mourn. For about eighteen months previous to her death she passed through great bodily afflection (sic), but not a murmer (sic) or a repining(?) word escaped from her lips. Her last hours were peaceful and happy. Her youngest brother writes, "Our sister was happy in God, and died in peace. May we meet her happy spirit in heaven. Farewell, dear Eliza - but,

"Yet again we hope to meet thee,
When the dream of life is fled;
There in heaven we hope to greet thee,
Where no farewell tears are shed."

From Williamson.

A sad and fatal accident occurred in the north part of our town on Sunday afternoon, of the 10th inst. It appears that a young lad of some eleven years, son of Mr. Albert Milliman, rode a horse into a field near the barn to water, and on returning was thrown off the horse, and mangled in such a manner about his head and shoulders as to cause his death an Friday following. The horse was one of a work team, about seven or eight years old, supposed to be kind and gentle in every respect. The unfortunate boy was rendered speechless by his injuries, and thus unable to state the particulars to his grief stricken parents. This melancholy incident casts a gloom over the entire community, particularly as the deceased was a pet and favorite in the neighborhood of his residence.

NOTE: In the 1870 census, Albert and "Silva" Milliman resided in Williamson (p.o. Pultneyville) with Harriet Milliman, age 10, and Leland Milliman, age 5. In the 1880 census, the parents resided with daughter Hattie, age 20, son Menzo, age 4, and a namesake son Leland V., age 2. NOTE: the spelling of the first little boy named Leland V. is incorrect on both the County Historian's list and the listing on findagrave. If Leland Milliman passed away on Sept. 12, perhaps he was buried on Friday, the 15th.

Mrs. Walsh Was Over Ninety Years of
Age and Had Long Lived in Lyons.
Her Remarkable Memory.

Lyons, Oct. 31- The death of Mrs. Catherine Walsh, widow of Michael Walsh, occurred to-day at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Lawrence Bradley, on Catharine street. Mrs. Walsh was the oldest communicant of St. Michael's Church and the second oldest female inhabitant of the village. She was born in Wexford, Ireland, over ninety years ago, and there she lived until 1870, when with her family she emigrated to this country, settling at once in Lyons, where her home has been made ever since. Her death was due to the general breakdown incident to old age, but up in the last she retained most remarkable vitality and a wonderfully clear mind.

Being possessed of an unusually accurate memory and having passed through most interesting and extraordinary experiences in her early days in Ireland, Mrs. Walsh's society was eagerly sought by young and old, who delighted to hear her tell of the scenes and incidents of the great famine which scourged her home country in 1848, and of the many personages, since become famous, with whom in her early profession as a hospital nurse she came in contact.

Three sons and one daughter survived the venerable lady. They are John Walsh, of Melbourne, Australia; Stephen Walsh, of Buffalo; Jerold Walsh, of Syracuse, and Mrs. Lawrence Bradley, of Lyons. Michael Bradley, New York Central ticket agent at Lyons; John Bradley, American Express agent at Youngstown, Ohio; Stephen Bradley, of Syracuse; Lawrence Bradley and Julia Bradley, of Lyons, are surviving grandchildren.

Death of Capt. John A. Laing

Capt. John A. Laing died at his residence in this village Saturday, Jan. 15th, after a long and painful illness from cancer, at the age of 81 years, 6 mos. and 10 das. His death removes from our midst one who for the past twenty-five years has been a prominent citizen of our community, and who received the respect and honor of all who made his acquaintance.

He was born in the town of Boston, Erie Co., July 5th, 1816, and received his education in the common schools and at Waterloo Academy. He was a painter by trade, devoting most of his time to ornamental work on carriages. The early part of his active life was passed in Marion where he made many friends and was highly esteemed.

In 1859 he was a Member of Assembly from this county and represented his district with credit, being a ready speaker and a good debater. When the war broke out he took the platform and spoke for his country and urged men to join the army. After a few months he entered the army as a Lieutenant in Co. E, 111th N.Y. Vols., and was a faithful soldier having the confidence of his men. He was afterward promoted to the rank of Captain, and while commanding his regiment was severely wounded and was given up by the surgeons to die, but a good constitution and a determined resolution to live carried him through and he returned home, though he never fully recovered from his wounds.

The Captain always took an active part in political matters, and was often at conventions and public meetings where his voice was heard in the deliberations. He was a Republican from the organization of that party until the day of his death. For sixteen years he was Justice of the Peace in this town, being compelled by age and infirmity to retire to private life. Until within a few weeks past he has been seen on our streets nearly every day, and everyone was always glad to see him and receive his cordial smile and cheery greeting.

Since the death of Mrs. Laing, two years ago, he has been cared for by his daughter, Mrs. C.C. Hudson. He leaves, besides his daughter, one son, Charles, of Fort Dodge, Kansas.

The funeral was held on Tuesday afternoon, at 2 o'clock, at the Presbyterian church, being conducted by (cut off).
