From Geneva Gazette 20 September 1889


MRS. SARAH EASTER -
This estimable townswoman passed away last Monday morning at the advanced age of 86 years, more than half of which period 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 1 July 1874

Died -
On Tuesday evening June 30, at the residence of Mr. Parlett, Geneva, Mrs. Jane Easterbrook, aged 66 years. Her funeral will take place at 3 o'clock tomorrow afternoon from the M. E. Church.



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 at No. 9 Church.  By his death we lose another old and steadfast patron.

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 Egan, 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.
