Yesterday afternoon about four o'clock, Hiram Calhoun was drowned in Canandaigua Lake some forty or fifty rods from the end of the pier at this place. He lived up the lake about ten miles and had brought down a scow load of wood. After unloading this his son and William Sanford got the scow out into the lake to go back home. Mr. Calhoun in attempting to adjust some of the rigging fell overboard, the scow passing directly over him. He struggled first to gain the boat and a plank was thrown out, but he was unable to reach either as the high wind drove them away from him. His situation now became known on shore, when John Pinkerton and William Mack went out in a skiff and brought him in to O. W. Taylor's. Dr. J. T. Smith was called and every exertion made to resuscitate him but of no avail.

From "Friends' Intelligencer and Journal, Volume 57." Friends' Intelligencer Association, 1900.


Mary Ann Calkins departed this life, Third month 9, 1900, at the home of her son, J. K. Calkins, in Ruskin, Georgia, aged 68 years.

Mary Ann Knight was born in Farmington, Ontario county, New York, her parents being John and Loretta Knight, both members of the Society of Friends. Mary was a bright and conscientious child, and utilized to the utmost her limited facilities for securing an education. At the age of eighteen she was married to Asa K. Calkins, also a Friend, and the union was one of much happiness, until the latter joined "the great majority," in 1S84. Five children were the result of their marriage, only two of whom lived to mature age, Loretta A., now the wife of J. S. L. Brown, and John K., both of whom now live in the South.

Mary A. Calkins was a consistent member of the Society of Friends all her life. Her isolation from them in later years was a cause of grief to her, and her interest in their meetings and philanthropic work as reported in the Intelligencer, seemed to intensify as the years went by. Some months ago she made an appeal through that paper for correspondence with any Friends who might feel impressed to write her. This was so generously responded to, that her son and daughter wish to thank all those who thus helped to make her last days less lonely After the death of her husband she became an earnest worker in the ranks of the W. C. T. U., and also gratified her desire for an education by graduating in the Chautauqua course of study. She was a fluent writer, and has left some excellent verse, which is highly prized by her son and daughter. Her "widow's mite" was not withheld from the down-trodden or oppressed.

The funeral was held at her son's residence, on First day, Third month 11, the services being simple and impressive. After some well-worded and feeling remarks by F. S. Blossom, the friends maintained entire silence for a time, in conformity with the customs of the Society of Friends. The remains were interred in the burial grounds of The Ruskin Commonwealth, of which society, or community, her son is a member.

Her death was peaceful, and her countenance afterward presented a beautiful, restful appearance, as though she had simply fallen asleep.

"Sleep that no pain shall wake,
Night that no morn shall break,
Till joy shall overtake
Her perfect peace."

Funeral at the house, Fifth-day, the 22d. Interment beside her husband in the Farmington Friends' burial grounds. [page 287]

Chapinville, N. Y. -
The sad news reached us last Saturday morning from Shortsville announcing the death of Ira M. Callister, a former resident of this place. He lived most of his life among us and was a young man who was liked by all who knew him. He suffered a long illness which came upon him a few years ago. We have long felt that Ira would soon leave us and that death would be his gain. We believed him a christian man. For the last few days he lived he expressed a desire to go home and join his little daughter who died but a few months ago. He leaves a wife and one child to mourn his loss. His mother came from a bed of sickness to see him a few days before his death. His parents and his family have the sympathy of all in their affliction. The deceased was in his 33d year. The funeral was held in the Presbyterian church at Shortsville on Tuesday at 2:30 p.m. Since writing the above, Mrs. William Callister, mother of the deceased has received the news that her father, E. Munson, of Tyre, N. Y., is not expected to live and that two of her brothers are dangerously sick. We trust that providence will keep her in her deep sorrow, for indeed this is one of life's great trials and she certainly has the sympathy of all who know her.

Lapham and after the usual period of study was admitted to the bar. As a member of the legal profession, Mr. Callister has long been well-known as one of the most able, prudent, and painstaking counsellors in this part of the state, and as the result of good natural abilities, supplemented by a capacity for labor, he has had during his whole professional life a large and desirable clientage.

We are pained to record the death of Mr. Nathan Canfield, which occurred at his residence May 6th, after a painful sickness of about three weeks. He had been a citizen of Canandaigua for 13 years. He was a man of sound judgment and accurate business habits. Though apparently retiring in disposition to his trusted friends, he was very genial and sociable. He was always in his place in the house of God on the Sabbath, and one whose advice could be depended on in time of need. His death is a great loss to the Baptist church, with whose interests he thoroughly identified himself. We desire to extend our sympathy to the bereaved family and friends.
