Billings Case is no more. On Monday morning, in the 68th year of
his age, with but a few days illness of neuralgia of the heart, he
passed on to the great unknown. Mr. Case was born and lived all his
life within sight of the home his death has made so sad and lonely, to
the wife and two daughters he leaves. He died as he has lived for many
years, a firm believer in the happiness of all; that the last prodigal
will return to his Father's house, and no wanderer will be lost; a kind
and loving husband, father, brother and firm friend. He was a model
farmer, having lived upon the farm where he died, for nearly half a
century. Few, if any, among us have produced as much fine stock as he.
His father, J. J. Case, came from Mass. to the Mud Creek valley in
1802, then an almost unknown forest, from which, with the ax of the
pioneer, he carved out for himself and loved ones, a home where he
lived to see most of his fourteen children settled around him.

Canadice, N. Y. - The community was shocked and saddened last Tuesday morning to learn of the death of John Caskey, who
was found dead in his bed at his home. It had been his habit, since the
death of his wife over a year ago, to divide his time between his
children and his home. Sunday evening, his son, Willard, and wife spent
the evening with him and tried to persuade him to return home with
them, but he declined and at that time seemed as well as usual. The
doctor thought he passed away in his sleep shortly after retiring
Sunday evening. Mr. Caskey was a lifelong resident of this place and a
much-respected citizen. He is survived by two sons, Willard of Richmond
and Earl of Canandaigua; and two daughters, Mrs. Fred Kingsley of
Richmond and Mrs. Lem Mastin of this place; and one sister, Mrs. Sarah
Coykendall of Hemlock. The funeral was held at the home in Canadice
Wednesday, Aug. 17. The Rev. Nelson of Hemlock officiated. Interment
was made at Canadice Corners. Mr. Caskey was 83 years old.

Although long expected, the death of Mr. Daniel Catchpole causes
most profound sorrow in this community. His ailment was of a cancerous
nature, in hopes of eradicating which he submitted to a critical
operation at the hands of a New York surgeon several months ago. The
operation afforded him only temporary relief. He came to fully realize
the incurable nature of his ailment and accordingly, "set his house in
order" in spiritual as well as material things for the great change.
Mr. C. was formerly an attendant of the Ref. Dutch Church, latterly of
St. Peter's Church. In business he had been for many years a member of
the firm of T. Smith & Co., carrying on the extensive and
prosperous business of the "Geneva Steam Bending and Spoke Works." His
duties were the oversight and management of the practical operations.
Associated with him were Messrs. Thomas Smith and his own two sons, E.
A. and L. G. Catchpole. The business has been and still is exceedingly
prosperous, much of the credit therefore being due to his sagacious
oversight and management during his lifetime. The deceased leaves a
widow and three children, two sons and one daughter. In former years we
were closely associated with the deceased in some of Geneva's
organizations. For a long time he was a member of old Franklin Engine
Co. No. 4, and became engineer of the Button Steamer when it took the
place of the old brake machine. The funeral services will take place at

Today we chronicle the death of another of our longtime citizens, George Catchpole,
who passed away Wednesday, June 26th, 1889. He was born in Suffolk,
England, in the year 1801, and consequently was aged nearly 88 years.
He came to Geneva in the year 1836, accompanied by his wife, a
daughter, Mrs. Edward Smith, and two sons, Alfred and Daniel E. The
latter was but two years old at that time. The family took up their
residence on Lewis street in the year 1840 and that has been the old
gentleman's home ever since. Three children were born to them here, of
whom but one survives, Martha, wife of Immer Crittenden. His consort
died the 15th of July, 1882. There have been few men of stronger
vitality than he. He retained all his mental and physical faculties to
within ten days of his death, and was sound in mind to within a few
hours of the end. Mr. Catchpole was a man of very quiet habits and
disposition, so that he was intimately known by but few outside the
vicinity of his home. They knew his worth as a citizen, a neighbor, a
friend. In all his relations he was true as steel. He was a man of his
word, and a promise was sacredly kept. He was an inventor, a mechanic
of no ordinary talents and in this respect his two sons,
follow closely after. Such men's lives cannot be prolonged too far.
Every village has room for plenty like them. A few years ago he united
with St. Peter's Church and has since been a steady attendant at all
services. From that sacred Memorial edifice his mortal remains were
last Friday conveyed to the grave. Six grandchildren acted as bearers,
the four sons of Edward Smith and two of D. E. Catchpole. Could there
be a stronger token of affection for the aged old man than this? His
