MRS. SARAH EASTER - This estimable townswoman passed away
Monday morning at the advanced age of 86 years, more than half of which
of her existence she resided in Geneva. Her husband was a worthy
minister of the M. E. Church, and her first great sorrow came through
his sudden and tragic death. He was one of the two ill-fated
victims who were killed by an accidental explosion of fireworks on the
night of July 4th, 1842, the other being Joseph Fulton, at that time a
well known butcher. Mrs. Easter leaves one son, Rev. John Easter,
and two daughters. She was a lifelong and devout member of the
same church in which both husband and son faithfully and zealously
labored in the ministry. Her funeral held at the M. E. Church
last Wednesday, was largely attended. Another saint has been
gathered into the heavenly fold.

From Geneva Courier 13 June 1877
Mrs. Mathew Easterbrook died on Saturday morning last, of
paralysis, at the family residence, Washington street. Some of
the circumstances of her illness and death make the case an unusually
sad one. She was stricken first on the absence of her husband at
church, on Sunday, the second instance, without the least
premonition. Indeed, she had been in better health than usual
this spring; and on the day when she was stricken her conversation was
more sprightly than usual; and Mr. Easterbrook lingered so
long that in order to be at his place in the choir of the Methodist
church he was obliged to run. Shortly after the service opened,
word was conveyed to him of his wife's sudden illness, and he hastened
home, but to find her in a state of unconsciousness. She did not
recover from the shock til Tuesday; and then
was immediately stricken again, and died on Saturday morning
at half past ten o'clock -- exactly six days after the first
attack. Mrs. Easterbrook, formerly Miss Hawks, and an
only daughter, came to this country when about 5 years old.
Mr. Easterbrook, then a lad, was here. Both were born in
England. Their union was thus not only natural, but a happy
one. Mrs. Easterbrook was for more than thirty years, we
believe, a consistent member of the Methodist Episcopal church; a lady
of retiring habits, and of fine mind and tastes; very highly esteemed
for her many excellent qualities of head and heart. Her husband
and other relatives will have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire
community in their bereavement.

OBITUARY - Mr. Henry Easto, a long-time resident of Seneca,
and a veteran of the late war, died at his residence Tuesday evening
last, in the 82d year of his age.
He was by birth an Englishman, and although he long since
renounced allegiance to his mother country and became in all things
essentially an American, even to fighting for the preservation of his
adopted country, yet he ever retained a tender feeling for the land
which gave him birth. He returned from the war impaired in health
by its vicissitudes, and a grateful government rewarded him with a
liberal pension. He was in all respects a worthy citizen, helpful
neighbor and kind friend. He was buried yesterday in the cemetery

DEATH BY LIGHTNING - During the hard thunder shower which occurred
here on the afternoon of the 27th ult., a man by the name of Anthony
and a horse belonging to David Clark, were instantly killed.
Egan was a laboring man, and worked for Mr. Clark by the month,
occupying his tenant house. It seems that Egan took refuge under a
butternut tree during the storm, with the horse, being engaged in
cultivating a piece of corn on some land belonging to Mr. Jerry
Hawkins, planted by Mr. Clark. The only marks on him was a red streak
down the side of his neck and across the top of his right shoulder. The
horse was struck just over the eye. The man and horse were found by one
of Mr. Clark's daughters, who gave the alarm and called for some help
from the neighbors, Mr. Clark being absent from home at the time. A
large crowd of people were soon gathered to view the remains. Egan
leaves a wife and three small children. A coroner's inquest was held at
the village in the evening, after examinations had been made by Drs.
Bull and Draper, and the jury returned a verdict in accordance with the
above stated facts. The horse which was killed was valued at about two
hundred dollars. A few years ago a flock of sheep was killed by
lightning in the same field but a few rods from where the man and horse
were struck. Victor, July 1st, 1872.
