From Shortsville Enterprise 21 July 1911
Last week Wednesday afternoon while Frank Dubler, who
resided about two miles north of Clifton Springs on the A. Jay Short
farm, was assisting his neighbor, John Peters, to spray potatoes, he
fell from the spraying machine and received such injuries as to cause
his death the following Saturday. Mr. Dubler was driving the team and
was sitting on the front of the sprayer, when the machine struck a
large stone and the jar was sufficient to knock him from his position.
He struck the ground on his head and fell directly in front of one of
the wheels, which, instead of passing over him, pushed him along for
several feet. His companion stopped the horses as quickly as possible
and removed him from beneath the machine. Mr. Peters saw that Dubler
was seriously injured and telephoned to Clifton Springs for a
physician, who found him to be paralyzed and conscious only a portion
of the time. His condition grew worse and the next day he was removed
to the annex of the sanitarium in that village where an operation was
performed in the hopes of saving his life. Everything possible was done
to relieve his condition, but he gradually grew worse until Saturday,
when death put an end to his terrible suffering.
Mr. Dubler was aged 32 years, and had spent nearly his whole life in
this vicinity. He had worked at the factory of the Shortsville Wheel
Company for some time and was always a popular young man with his
fellow workmen. His wife is a sister of Gottlieb Walter of East avenue.
Beside his wife, he leaves two children, a mother and several sisters

From Geneva Daily Times 8 May 1908
Byron McMaster, aged about 50 years, and James DuBois, Jr.,
aged about 38 years, who resided on the shores of Canandaigua lake,
were drowned in the lake yesterday afternoon while on a fishing trip.
The men left their homes about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon and went
out upon the lake to fish. About 7 o'clock last evening, L. C. Adams,
who resides about three miles up the east shore of the lake, heard
cries for help. He and his son went to the shore immediately and saw
two men clinging to an upturned boat at a point near the middle of the
lake, about half a mile from shore. The men at the time were struggling
to right the boat and climb into it, but were evidently meeting with
but little success. Adams got out his own boat and started to the
rescue. His boat was leaking badly, however, and he was obliged to
return for another. When he was ready to go out again it was quite dark
and the cries of the men had ceased. When Mr. Adams reached the middle
of the lake everything was still and no trace could be found either of
the men or the boat. The facts in the case were telephoned to
Canandaigua and Adams and other neighbors continued the search through
the night without results. This morning a larger searching party was
organized under the direction of Coroner Warner and about thirty boats
spent the morning on the lake dragging for the bodies. Up until noon no
trace of the men had been found. The boat occupied by them was found on
the shore at the foot of the lake. The boat contained the cap of one of
the men and a whitefish. It had evidently been overturned but was
rightside up when found. The lake was very rough at the time the
accident happened and the boat had drifted in to shore during the
night. At the place where the drowning occurred the water is not very
deep and it is expected that both bodies will be recovered. McMaster is
survived by his widow, two sons and one daughter. DuBois is survived by
his widow and one son three years of age.
From Ontario County Journal 5 November 1909
The death of James Dubois, who passed away at his home on
Lake street on Friday, removed a familiar figure from the haunts of the
fishermen. Death was due to general debility. Mr. Dubois was perhaps
more familiar with the fishing grounds at this end of the lake than any
other man, and knew where to find the white fish and bull heads at all
seasons. Deceased was 74 years of age. His wife died several years ago.
There survive four sons, Charles H., Rankin and Wallace Dubois of this
village, and David Dubois, of Batavia; also two daughters, Mrs. Louis
Tobin of this village, and Mrs. Charles Dewey of Palmyra. Funeral
services were held on Sunday afternoon at the Curtice undertaking rooms.
From Ontario County Journal 10 November 1916
Victor, N. Y. - Rev. James H. Dubois, of this town, died at
the home of his sister, Mrs. Mary Bennett, at Waverly, on Oct. 31 of
arterial sclerosis. A few weeks ago, Mr. Dubois went to visit his
sister, thinking the change would prove beneficial, but not long after
his arrival he grew worse. He was born at Humphrey on August 7, 1811;
was married on Nov. 25, 1868, to Miss Mary E. Van Voorhis, of Victor.
In the fall of the same year he entered the Methodist Episcopal
ministry in Genesee conference and was a pastor for 18 years. Ill
health compelled him to retire from the ministry and he purchased a
home in this village, where he resided for 30 years. He is survived by
his wife and one daughter, Mrs. Roy A. Deal, of this village; and two
sisters, Mrs. Mary Bennett and Miss Clarissa Dubois, both of Waverly;
and two brothers, Rev. Milton Dubois of Leroy and Edmond Dubois of
Bradford, Pa. Funeral services were conducted from the family home on
Friday by Rev. J. W. Allatt, pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church.

James, Rankin, and Wallace
of Canandaigua, and David of Batavia; and four daughters, Mrs.

Chapinville, and Mrs. Ida N. Pratt of
Geneva. Funeral will be held from the home on the lake shore road
Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Interment in West avenue cemetery. A
peculiar fact in connection with this death is that up to the time of
the death of Mrs. DuBois, five generations of her family were living,
as her son, Charles DuBois, has grandchildren and her mother, Mrs.
Nancy McCormack, is still living. This is one of the rare cases where a
great-grandmother has preceded in death the great-great-grandmother of
the youngest branch of the family.

Naples, N. Y. - Coroner Dr.
John H. Jewett of Canandaigua, was summoned here last Friday to hold an
inquest over the body of Mrs. Charlotte Duell, who died on
Thursday, Jan. 20th. Mrs. Duell was a widow, about 35 years old, with a
family of eight children, in comparatively destitute circumstances.
Just before her death, she signed a sworn
statement charging F. W. Griswold, of Italy, with unlawful intercourse
with her on promise of marriage, and when she had become pregnant,
with taking taking her to Wayland to a doctor, who procured an
abortion, which was the cause of her death. Warrants were issued for
parties, and they were present at the inquest. The evidence obtained
failed to substantiate the woman's dying accusation, and the jury was
compelled to give a verdict of "Death by natural causes." The
verdict was based upon the evidence of three of our physicians, and
the universal query now is, were they deceived, or what was the matter?
for not one in a hundred but still believes the dying woman swore to
the truth as far as the seducer is concerned. The case excites a great
deal of talk and speculation, mingled with sympathy for the poor,
homeless orphans. Coroner Jewett conducted the inquest with dignity and
ability, and won many friends during his short stay. As a matter of
course, the prisoners were immediately discharged. It is possible the

Intelligence was received here last week to the effect that Sergeant
of this town, had been killed in an engagement with
the rebels. The following letter from the Captain of the Company to
which he was
attached, addressed to the wife of the deceased soldier, confirms the
and gives the particulars of the sad event:
Harper's Ferry, Va., May 27
Mrs. S. C. Duell -- It is my painful task to inform you that by the
dispensation of that Providence who rules alike for good in Peace or
War, your and my country has lost a brave defender, and you have lost
your husband. This company and myself feel that by the death of
Sergeant Duell, we have lost a Patriot, and a gloom now deepened by the
wounding and possibly death of a number of others of the company in the
battle of Winchester the following day, hangs around us as we sit by
our bivouac fires tonight. I can offer no consolation except to say
that we knew him and by our loss can in some way measure yours. His
name will not be dropped from our roll call, for in spirit he is still
with us and with our cause.
On Saturday, the 24th, my company received orders to move from
Charleston to Winchester immediately. We started about 1 p.m., sending
our horses with a guard in charge of Sergeant Duell. At Berryville 12
miles on the way, the party were surprised and suddenly fired on by a
party of guerrillas, some 20 in number. Mr. Duell fell dead from his
saddle and the party returned rapidly and got out of reach of the
second fire. His horse which he brought from home, together with
equipments, was brought back to camp and is now in
my possession. I will use him until you may order me how to dispose of

vengeance is for the Lord, we think and hope we may be permitted to be
instruments. In regard to his pay &c., I will write full

From Auburn Citizen 15 November 1906
Canandaigua, N. Y., Nov. 13 - At Willard State hospital yesterday morning occurred the death of Thomas Dugan of
this village, for years a New York Central engineer. He had been a
sufferer from melancholy for nearly two years and had been receiving
treatment at the hospital during that time. Mr. Dugan was born in
Canandaigua about 50 years ago and had been in the employ of the
railroad company since he was a small boy. He went on the road as
fireman, was a freight engineer for several years and long held
positions as passenger engineer. He ran engines on the Auburn, Batavia
and main road, and it was while he was engineer of the Auburn Buffalo
express that he met with an accident which permanently affected him.
His train crashed into a freight near Auburn about nine years ago. Two
persons were killed and Mr. Dugan was among the seriously injured. He
received a blow on the head which laid him up for months. He took a
minor run when he returned to the road, but never recovered the buoyant
and genial spirit that made him popular with all railroad men. The
accident was upon his mind, and when, while running a passenger train
through Geneva, he was compelled to look upon a fatal wreck in the
yards there, his mind weakened. He still clung to the cab, and up to
the last run he ever made there was no outward evidence of his mental
condition. Mr. Dugan leaves his wife, Mrs. Ella Esan Dugan; one son,
Arthur; and three daughters, Bessie, May and Helen. Two brothers, M. D.
Dugan of this place and John Dugan of Buffalo, also survive.

The death of Almerin Dunham, one of Manchester's oldest
residents, occurred at his home in that village, aged 83 years, after a
lingering illness. Mr. Dunham was born at Mansfield, Conn., on August
3, 1830, a son of Samuel and Aseneth Dunham. During the year of 1832 he
came with his parents to what is now known as the Rufus Smith farm four
miles north of this village, his father having purchased the property.
The trip from Mansfield was made by way of Troy and the journey from
that point was by way of Erie Canal boat. The deceased located in
Manchester village about 60 years ago and later engaged in the nursery
business which he conducted until 1890. He was always active in
politics, being first a Whig and then a Democrat. For 14 years he
served as town constable and one year as town collector, having been
elected to the latter office on a Whig ticket in 1868. He was Justice
of Peace for 20 consecutive years and retired from that office on
December 31, 1911, owing to the infirmities of age. He also served as
clerk of the village of Manchester for many years. The survivors are

On January 8, at the state hospital at Willard, occurred the death of Charles E. Dunham. He
was born in Bristol on May 24, 1836, the son of Morgan and Maria
Vincent Dunham. At an early age his family removed to Brighton. While
still a young man, he returned to Bristol, where in 1863 he married
Mary L. Wilson and they settled in Cayuga near Auburn, where they
remained for five years. They then came back to Bristol and for nearly
500 years had resided on the farm he owned at the time of his death. He
was known among horsemen for his ability in handling and selecting good
horses and his judgment was consulted by prospective buyers for miles
around. His courage and pleasure in this capacity never lessened until
he had passed three score years and ten, when he suffered a stroke of
the brain which slowly and surely destroyed both mind and strength. For
two years following this misfortune, he was tenderly cared for at home,
when his condition became such that this was no longer possible and he
was taken to the Canandaigua hospital in the vain hope that he might
there be benefited and again returned to his home. At the expiration of
several weeks his condition grew worse and he was removed to the state
hospital. He is survived by his widow; two daughters, Mrs. Frank E.
Briggs of Bristol, and Mrs. Irving C. Briggs of Honeoye; two
granddaughters; and a sister, Mrs. Juliette Waldron, who last autumn
passed her 80th birthday and is the only survivor of a family of four

From Geneva Gazette 3 October 1873
Mortuary - On Monday last William Dunham of Geneva, a
veteran of 82 years, passed
from the scenes of the earth--suddenly at the last, but not
unexpectedly to himself; for although endowed with sufficient health
and strength to move among his fellow men up to within a day or two of
his dissolution, yet he seemed conscious of the fast-ebbing tide, and
has systematically set his house in order for the final event.
Mr. Dunham was a hard-working, honored mechanic, frugal in his
habits, yet denying nothing that was necessary to the comfort of his
family and education of his children. He was a man of positive
character and opinions, espousing principles from close study and
observation -- never swerving from a policy that he believed to be
right. He was a sterling Democrat, and never failed, either at
general or local elections, to deposit his ballot. Mr. Dunham has
resided in Geneva about 50 years, reared a family of one son and four
daughters who inherit the honored character of their departed sire.
He could truthfully boast that no fellow-man ever suffered wrong
at his hands, and that he punctually discharged every earthly
obligation. Although surviving the age commonly allotted to man,
yet we cannot but feel his loss as of an upright and honored citizen.
From a memorandum in the handwriting of deceased, found among his
papers, we gather the following facts relating to his personal history:
born in Morris township, Morris Co., New Jersey, May
29th, 1792. At the age of 21 he joined the Bloomfield Light
Infantry, and went into the federal service in 1814
with his company which volunteered for the war, and was stationed at
Sandy Hook. At the close of the war he received an honorable
discharge, certifying creditable service to himself and his country.
He was married to Mary Renwick Dec. 3d, 1816.
From Ontario County Journal 9 June 1916
Bristol, N. Y. - The death of William Dunham, a native and
excepting about three years spent in Canandaigua and Greigsville, a
lifelong resident of this town, occurred at his home on Monday morning
at 11 o'clock. He had been in poor health for several years and
although able to be about, he had been in a serious condition for some
time. Mr. Dunham was one of a family of nine children born to Mary Wood
and Ephraim Dunham and was 71 years and 1 month of age and was the
third to go from the large family, the youngest of whom is 59 years
old. He married for his first wife Miss Nancy Childs, who died on June
4, 1887, leaving a daughter, Edna, now Mrs. Charles Warren. He married
Miss Edith Burtram, who is loved as a mother by his daughter and who
has cared for him through his illness aided the past few days by his
grandson, Carl Warren. Besides his wife and daughter, he is survived by
three grandchildren; and two brothers and four sisters, Carter Dunham
of Plymouth, Mich., Henry of Bristol, Mrs. Daniel Taylor and Mrs.
Lucina Case of Bristol, Mrs. Elizabeth Wood of Pittsford, and Mrs.
Frank Hurlburt of Shortsville. Mr. Dunham was a carpenter by trade and
excepting the three years had lived since his first marriage in the
home where he died. He was a good neighbor and attended the
Congregational church. The funeral was held from his late home on
Thursday with burial in Evergreen cemetery at Baptist Hill. William
Wheeler, of Holcomb, was funeral director.

William H. Dunham, died at his home, Seneca Castle, Jan. 31st, in
the 70th year of his age. The deceased was born in Johnstown,
Montgomery Co. At an early age his parents removed to Canton,
Ohio; subsequently they returned to this state and settled at Chili,
Monroe Co., where they resided for ten years, and then (in 1850)
removed to Geneva. A year or two later the subject of this notice
married the only daughter of Nathan Reed 2d, who survives him.
They eventually settled on a farm near Seneca Castle P. O., where
We formed Mr. Dunham's acquaintance very soon after he first took up a
residence in Geneva. He was an ardent Democrat, an attentive
reader and close observer of passing events in this stirring world, and
an interesting conversationalist. Firmly grounded in principles, he
could defend them with forceful argument. Withal he was a good
citizen in all that the term implies, a kind and sympathetic neighbor,
and an exemplary Christian.

Our quiet community was startled on Monday morning last by the
announcement of (the death) of one of our oldest and best known
citizens. To those who had seen him only a few days previous in
the perfect enjoyment of health and happiness, this sad news comes with
peculiar force, while to those companions of his, who are nearly the
same age as he, again comes the solemn warning that slowly but surely
one by one they are
passing away to that country from whose bourne no traveler
returns. Thomas Dunn was born in Whitehaven, Cumberland
county, England, September 24th, 1807, and was therefore at the time of
his death in his seventieth year. He remained in England
until 1840 when he emigrated to Canada, and there worked at his trade
for several years, then tiring of the Dominion, he came to this country
and after working in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, he
finally settled in Geneva in 1850, and entered the employ of Messrs.
Buckley & Bennett, where he remained until the firm ceased
business. He then entered into business for himself and from that
time he succeeded by his industry and thrift in establishing an
extensive furniture business and gained the entire confidence of this
community. His death will be a serious loss to our village, and
the place left vacant, it will be difficult to fill. He leaves
surviving him a wife, son and daughter, and one
brother residing in Canada and one in England. His
funeral occurred this (Wednesday) afternoon at three o'clock
from the family residence on Castle street.

financially and he closed the business out. Of late years, Mr. Dunn has
