A little boy aged two years, son of Charles Babbitt of this village, met with a sad accident, which resulted in his death on Friday last.  The little fellow went to a drawer, from which he had been in the habit of receiving candy, and took from it an iron screw, nearly an inch long, which he swallowed.  It passed into his lungs, where it was found after death, which occurred in about an hour.



From Ontario County Journal 21 September 1888

Reed's Corners, N. Y. -
The public will learn with sincere regret of the death of Mr. Abijah Babbitt of this town, which event occurred on Tuesday, the 18th inst. Mr. Babbitt moved into this town with his parents in 1816. He was but two years old when his parents came from Cayuga county and settled upon the place which he has lived upon ever since. In 1840 he married Miss Louise Colf, a daughter of Charles Colf, who then owned the farm on the opposite side of the road from his father's place. They had but one child, Mr. Charles Babbitt, who lives but a short distance from the old parental home. Mr. Babbitt has never been a member of any church denomination, yet during his long life he has been a very regular attendant at church services and liberal contributor to pastoral support. He cast his first vote for presidential electors in 1836, voting for William Henry Harrison. In 1840 he took a very earnest part in the most exciting campaign ever known in this country, and as a member of a glee club, sung songs for "Tippecanoe and Tyler, too," in all parts of the county. He never missed a vote for presidential electors since he cast his first ballot, and supported the Whig party during its life and the Republican party ever since. His life has been employed as to business in agricultural pursuits with a moderate degree of success. He will be known by those who have long been acquainted with him, as a most charitable and benevolent person. He is one among the few who can conscientiously feel that he has done more for others than others have ever done for him. He was buried from his late home on Thursday afternoon last and his friends have laid his wearied body in the beautiful cemetery near Gorham village, mourned by a large circle of acquaintances.

From Geneva Courier 24 July 1861

Edmund W. Backenstose -
This unfortunate young man, who enlisted in Capt. Walker's company, to serve his country, was brought home on Monday last, from Washington, a corpse.  He was accidentally shot by one of his comrades (Thomas Baxter) who went from this village.  The facts, as near as we can learn them from Mr. D. Colvin, who was with the company at the time he was shot, and brought the body back to Geneva, are as follows:

Backenstose and Baxter were setting in their camp some six or eight feet apart, conversing about the war, and telling each other how they would like to get a chance at some of the Secessionists.  While they were talking, another soldier came in who had been on guard, and stacked his gun with a lot of others near where Baxter was sitting.  Baxter jerked it up, drew back the hammer, supposing it was not loaded, leveled it at Backenstose, and shot him.  The ball entered his right lung, passed through the body and came out at the spine.  The poor fellow threw up his arms, fell back and exclaimed, "O Fred !" meaning, it is supposed, Fred Turck, who is a member of the same company, and was near by when the gun went off.  These were the only words he spoke before he died, living about fifteen minutes after he was shot.

His body arrived here on the P. H. Field, at about half past ten on Monday morning.  A large concourse of people, accompanied by the Canadesaga Guards, were on the dock waiting for its arrival when it was escorted from the steamboat to the residence of his parents, on the south side of the Park, where it remained until 6 o'clock, when appropriate services were had in the presence of a large number of citizens.  The remains were deposited in the Washington Street Cemetery.

From Ontario County Journal 29 December 1876


Died - at his home in this village on the 26th inst., Clinton C. Backus, in the 65th year of his age. Mr. Backus was born at Freetown, county of Cortland in this state, January 18th, 1812.  He became a resident of Canandaigua in 1864, and although but comparatively a few of the active years of his life were spent in our midst, yet he endeared himself to whomever he came in contact with.  He has held several positions of trust and responsibility since he came among us, and whatever the work assigned him to do it was well, faithfully and uprightly executed.  A wife and three daughters are left with hearts bleeding, because the tender husband and loving father is no longer of the household.  Two of the daughters are married, the oldest the wife of Hon. Hanford Struble, of Penn Yan; the other of H. C. Harpending, Esq., of Dundee.  The funeral exercises were conducted at his late residence on Dungan street at 3 o'clock yesterday.  The deceased was a man of more than ordinary business qualifications, and as an exemplary christian, a safe adviser and a true friend he had few equals. We deeply sympathize with the bereaved family, as we well know the broken tie has cast deep the shadows of sorrow; but why not look up and smile even in the midst of tears, for the summons that called the father, husband and friend gives to him a peaceful rest in the home of immortality.

He was prominent in Masonic circles, having served as chaplain of the Grand Lodge of the State and of the Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons. He is survived by his wife and one brother, Daniel Bacon, of Pultney. The funeral was very largely attended from his late home yesterday afternoon.

Clifton Springs, N. Y. -
From being poisoned in some way not surely known at this time, Mrs. Barlow Baggerly, wife of Barlow Baggerly, a farmer just south of this village on Pearl street, and Charles Cooley, who lived in this village but was employed by Mr. Baggerly, died last evening; and Mr. Baggerly is in a critical condition. A daughter, Norma Baggerly, was the only one of the four that had dinner at noon yesterday at the Baggerly home to escape poisoning. The family had dinner at 12 o'clock yesterday as usual and Norma returned to school in this village. She was not in any way affected by poison. Mr. and Mrs. Baggerly and Mr. Cooley became violently ill shortly after dinner, however, and during the afternoon Mr. Cooley was removed to his home on South street in this village. He died shortly after 7 o'clock last evening, and Mrs. Baggerly died about 8:30 o'clock. The dinner meal consisted of tomato soup, pork, potatoes, bread and butter and corn starch pudding.

Mr. Baggerly is still alive today, although very ill. The physician says he will recover. The only part of the dinner which Miss Norma Baggerly did not partake of was the sauce on the pudding. The others ate this sauce. Coroner Eiseline of Shortsville held an inquest today and gave a verdict that Mrs. Baggerly and Mr. Cooley were victims of accidental poisoning. It was brought out that the reason Miss Baggerly did not eat the pudding sauce was because she disliked the vanilla with which it was flavored. The remainder of the pudding which was not eaten with the dinner was thrown out and eaten by the dog which was also made very sick.

From Ontario County Times 20 January 1875

Another Pioneer Gone to His Rest -
Under the appropriate head, will be found a notice of the death of Everett Baggerly, a well-known and pioneer resident of Clifton Springs. The latter part of deceased last, he was suddenly stricken with paralysis while at the residence of his his son-in-law, Mr. Thomas Sheriff of Clifton Springs, where he has made his home for the past several years. On Saturday last the disease culminated in his death, at the advanced age of 90 years. His funeral was largely attended on Tuesday. Mr. Baggerly was one of the pioneers of eastern Ontario, coming to this county in the year 1805, from Montgomery county, Maryland. In his immigration he was accompanied by his parents, with eight brothers and two sisters. The family settled in the town of Phelps where he resided up to within a few years of his death. He was married, after his arrival here, in 1811, to Miss Sarah Larnard, by whom he had six children -- three of whom are still living. At the time of his death, he was a leading member of the M. E. Church, having joined that organization in 1803 -- seventy-two years ago. During the latter years of his life the deceased was in the habit of writing considerably -- his subjects being of the most diverse character -- and thus kept his mind active and alive to passing events, and, at the same time, served to occupy time which would otherwise hang heavily on his hands. We understand he was thus engaged when stricken with the disease which was the cause of his death. On Christmas, shortly after being stricken, he felt that he would like to attempt to write something more, and materials being furnished, he succeeded in tracing, in trembling lines, the following words: "Farewell sin and sorrow, my trust is in God." With his death, all but one of the brothers have passed away, and there remains now, of the original family, only two -- a brother and sister.

A little over a year ago, George N. Baggerly, aged 20 years, enlisted in the services of his country. Last Friday the transport Thomas arrived in San Francisco from Manila with his remains on board. He died August 7 of dysentery, soon after the steamer had sailed. The deceased was the only son of George D. Baggerly of 49 Gibson street, this village. He enlisted and became a member of Company H, 42d N. Y. V. Inf. Upon reaching the Philippines, his company was assigned to duty in the mountains about 250 miles from Manila.

In the opinion of the physicians, he had recovered sufficiently to take passage for home, but it is believed that he became seasick and in his weakened condition was unable to rally. Mr. Baggerly, the boy's father, has received no official notice of his son's death as yet.
