acid. He was found shortly after 11 o'clock in a dying condition in the
Phelps Hotel, where he lodged. The discovery was made by a porter who

From Geneva Gazette 24 February 1882
Death of William Gardner, Sr. - This venerable citizen died
o'clock last evening, in the 89th year of his age. Few men in
town were better known or more
universally respected. Mr. Gardner was born in Canandaigua, Sept.
25 1793; came to Geneva in 1815, and in 1817 was married, locating on
the premises on Pulteney street, where he has ever since resided.
His trade was that of
gunsmith, and before the making of firearms by machinery many of the
best specimens, particularly of rifles, were the production of his
handiwork. His shop was headquarters of military men and
sportsmen for a wide circle around Geneva, to whom he dispensed
hospitality with a liberal hand. About eighteen years ago he met
with the greatest misfortune which can befall man -- he became
blind, and that calamity, of course, ended his career as a
mechanic. He has borne his infirmity with patience, even
cheerfulness, and otherwise his strong physical faculties remained
unimpaired up to within
three weeks of his death. The afflicted widow and five of six children
survive him -- all of whom
will be present to pay the last tribute of respect and affection to one
who was ever kind, faithful and indulgent in his domestic
relations. The funeral will take place on Monday, Feb. 27th, at
2:30 p.m. from Trinity Church. Friends and acquaintances are
respectfully invited to attend.

Obituary of Joseph Garlinghouse
What follows is the transcription from the Canandaigua paper of the
obituary of Joseph Garlinghouse. (9/14/1784 - 2/22/1862) He was a
Civil War Veteran & Ontario County Sheriff. The clarifying
parentheses in the transcription are from the transcriber.
A fact of unusual interest is that Joseph Garlinghouse was the
grandfather of Katherine Hepburn.
Death of an Old Citizen
The veteran Joseph Garlinghouse, formerly and for many years a
prominent and influential citizen of this county, died suddenly at
Leroy, at the residence of his daughter, on Saturday morning
last. He came from Albany the Thursday previous, stopping over
night at his home in Auburn, and proceeding the next day to
Leroy. He passed through this
place (Canandaigua) on Friday afternoon about four o'clock and spoke to
some of our citizens at the depot, appearing to be in the enjoyment of
his usual good health and even
more than ordinarily active and cheerful. Arriving at his
destination at Leroy in the evening, he was observed to be in excellent
spirits, and retired at a late hour with every indication of sound
health. In the morning he was found dead on the floor beside his
bed, and quite cold. He had probably been dead some hours.
disease which thus suddenly terminated his life is supposed to have
been apoplexy, of which he had previously had several severe attacks.
As before remarked, Mr. Garlinghouse was formerly a resident
county, (Ontario) and for a great number of years he exercised a large
here in political and public affairs. He twice held the office of
first from 1825 to 1828, and again from 1834 to 1837. He greatly
himself as a faithful and capable officer, and in the various other
positions which he subsequently held, ever acquitted himself with the
credit, discharging whatever duties devolved upon him, with the most
fidelity and with such promptitude and discretion as won for him the
and warm friendship of all with whom he became intimately
With but very limited educational advantages, he was enabled by his
native capacity and an indomitable will, which never yielded to any
to make for himself a name and reputation that the proudest might
He was indeed “a diamond in the rough” and in all the relations of life
esteemed a man of rare virtues. He was a firm friend, a public
patriotic citizen, thoroughly democratic in all his instincts and
honest - aiming to fulfill every obligation to the letter, and holding
word sacred under all circumstances.
While a resident of this county his home was at Allen’s Hill in the
town of Richmond, where he had
a large farm and was extensively involved in agricultural
operations. He was at one time the owner of a handsome property,
but several years ago met with some pecuniary reverses which swept away
the larger share of his hard earned wealth, and left him in his old age
And yet he did not despair, but resolutely set himself to work to
earn an honest living, which he did to the last day of his long and
useful life. In 1857 Lieut. Governor Selden appointed him Janitor
of our State Senate, and he was retained in that position until he
died. “Peace to
his ashes.” It will be long before we
look upon his like again. He was 77 years old
in September last.

Death of LEMAN B. GARLINGHOUSE - In our last week's paper we
gave an account of the severe accident that befel Mr. Garlinghouse. We
little thought then, that his injuries would terminate fatally.
But from the first hour after his removal home, he sank rapidly, and
on Thursday evening the dread messenger of death came, and "life's
fitful fever" had ended forever. Mr. Garlinghouse was a son of the late
Sheriff Garlinghouse of this county. He had long been engaged in active
business here where his life was passed. He was one of our most
and active business men, and by his industry at one time had
accumulated more than a competency. But through the vicissitudes of
fortune, and the adverse termination of litigations, in the last few
years he had
seen his hard earned money take wings and pass into the hands of
others. However much fortune had frowned upon him, he was not one to
to it, but on the contrary he had already matured his plans for the
and had entered into arrangements with Hon. Jarvis Lord to superintend
a distillery at Pittsford. Mr. Garlinghouse will leave a vacant place
in our midst, that will be long before it is filled. In common with the
whole community we tender to his afflicted family our warmest sympathy
in this the hour of their dire misfortune.
