Bristol, N. Y. - The remains of Henry Gladding were
interred here Saturday afternoon, Rev. F. F. Buckner officiating.
From Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 2 June 1893
The community of Bristol Center, a small hamlet about ten miles
from Canandaigua, between that village and Naples, were startled
yesterday morning to learn of the sudden and tragic death of one of the
oldest and best known citizens of that locality, Lafayette Gladding. Mr.
Gladding had resided in Bristol Center or that locality for a number of
years and was regarded as a man of more than ordinary intelligence and
ability. He was engaged in farming and occupied a large tract of land
which he cultivated with his two sons, Ebenezer and Sylvester Gladding.
He also had one daughter, Alice, who resided with her father and
brothers. Mr. Gladding's wife died several years ago, and since that
time Mr. Gladding has been seen to act queerly and his sanity has often
been questioned. When a few weeks since one of his daughters was taken
ill and died, it was apparent that this grief had severely affected Mr.
Gladding's mind and he was for some time sick with melancholia and
kindred maladies. During this period he often declared his intention of
taking his own life, but the threat was not considered seriously by his
family. Early yesterday morning, he went to the barn to do some work and
did not respond to the breakfast call. A search was made for him and he
was found in the barn hanging by the neck. The body was cut down but
life had become extinct. There was every indication that Mr. Gladding
had carried out his oft-repeated threats to take his own life. The body
had evidently been suspended in a cramped position for nearly an hour
and a half. The coroner was immediately summoned. Mr. Gladding was 69
years of age, of medium height and muscular build. He was known
all through Ontario County and had been prominently identified with numerous agricultural organizations.

JOHN GLEASON -
In sunshine and in storm, at early morn and far into the late hours
of night, the familiar form of this venerable and faithful employee of
the New York Central R.
R. Company could be seen at his post as switch-tender at the Geneva
station. For twenty-seven years he filled this responsible post
and but a single accident ever occurred, and that of but a trivial
nature, by reason of any mistake or negligence of his, and that one
almost broke the old man's heart. It was excused, for well the
railroad authorities knew his place
could be supplied by a more faithful and reliable man. A
few weeks ago the venerable switchman was taken ill. It proved a
fatal sickness. He lingered till Tuesday morning, when his spirit
was borne away, almost at the same hour with that of his countryman and
life-long neighbor, Thomas Nevins. Universally respected, his
death will be learned with universal regret.
