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.

[a Universalist newspaper]

DEATHS.  In Bristol, N.Y., on the 9th ult., of a pulmonary consumption, Mr. JONATHAN CASE, aged about 45.  Though educated a Baptist, he had, for several years previous to his death, been a firm and unwavering believer in “the restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began;” and found this consoling view of the character of God and the destiny of man, peculiarly happifying and sustaining in the hour of dissolution, and died in the triumphs of that faith which assured him that he should [would] finally meet his widow and six children, whom he left behind, together with a ransomed world of beautified spirits, in immortal purity and bliss.  His dying request was that the writer of this notice should [would] preach his funeral sermon; and although his aged parents, and many of his kindred, tried to dissuade him from that purpose, and to shake his faith in that doctrine, he remained steadfast to the end.  His request was complied with, and his funeral obsequies attended by the writer, on the Sabbath after his death, at the Baptist church in Bristol, which was filled to overflowing, by sympathizing friends of all denominations, who testified their affection and respect for the deceased, and their regard for the afflicted widow and children, by the tear of sympathy, and devout attention to the sentiments of a sermon on the resurrection, from 1 Cor. xv:38.

In 1821 he was married to Miss Eliza Castle of Canandaigua, and lived in Bristol until 1855, when he came to reside in Rushville. He leaves a wife and five children to mourn his loss, Chas. R. Case and Mrs. Oscar N. Fisher of West Bloomfield; and
M. L. and E. F. Case, and Mrs. Pomeroy of this village.

For over 40 years, he was a worthy member of the M. E. Church; although for some years in feeble health, his place in the house of God, and especially in prayer and class meetings, was seldom vacant. His last hours were peaceful, and his testimony clear and decided. He rejoiced that he had made the necessary preparation for death when he was in health. A short time before his death, when his children had gathered around, he looked at them intently and exclaimed, "There will be no parting there." The funeral was held at the M. E. church on Sunday, and was attended by the congregation and pastors of both churches; Rev. S. C. Leonard of the Congregational church led the services by prayer and reading the scriptures; Dr. Buck preached an appropriate sermon from Pas. 73--26, "My flesh and my heart faileth, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever." Rev. Gideon Lanning very feelingly addressed his friends.

From Geneva Gazette 5 October 1894

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 St. Peter's Church tomorrow at 4 p.m.

From Geneva Advertiser 2 July 1889

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 face as it reposed in his coffin was the very picture of "a rest in peace."
