DEATHS.  In the village of Orleans (Phelps,) on the 29th ult., Mrs. ELIZA, consort of Thomas C. Hutchinson, Esq., in the 31st year of her age. Mrs. H. was amiable in life, resigned in death, and has gone to share in the spiritual blessings of the paradise of God.  She has left, in the very prime of her life and usefulness, an affectionate husband and six beloved children, to lament her departure—to cherish her memory and her virtues while they live, and to imitate her good examples.  We would feelingly invoke the comforting influences of the gospel to rest upon their hearts, till they too shall be called to the haven of uninterrupted rest and enjoyment. Her funeral was attended in the Baptist church at Orleans on the 30th ult. where the invaluable consolations of divine truth were tendered to a crowded congregation of mourners and sympathizing friends, by the writer.

From Geneva Gazette 20 June 1884

A Sudden Death - At a quarter past 12 o'clock yesterday noon, Mr. P. P. Hyde died very suddenly at his residence, North Main st.  The deceased was afflicted some three or four years ago with some heart trouble, which however passed off in a few weeks, himself and family hoping never to return.  But about three weeks ago he experienced a recurrence of the trouble, which was attended by periods of acute pain.  Yesterday morning he arose very early and worked in his garden till breakfast time.  After partaking of the morning meal he went to his store and remained there till about ten o'clock, when his bodily sufferings became so alarming that he sought his home.  Rest brought him no relief, and at the hour first above indicated he passed suddenly and peacefully away.

Phineas P. Hyde was a native of Jordansville, Herkimer county, where he resided until about the year 1868, when he bought and has since occupied the dwelling wherein he breathed his last.  The first few years of his residence among us he was engaged in no business; subsequently he established a grocery on Castle near Main st., and by giving it close personal attention and by courteous treatment of customers he secured a liberal patronage.  He was thoroughly honest and conscientious in all dealings with his fellow-men.  He was a member of the Baptist church and performed his whole duty in its service.

Mr. Hyde was born Jan. 22, 1812, making his age 72 years, four months, 27 days.  He leaves a wife and two daughters, one of the latter (Mrs. Pratt) having her home with him, the other, also married, still residing at Jordansville, whither the remains will be conveyed, (probably tomorrow), for interment.

Corporal John Hyland,
of Canadice, attached to Captain Wood's company, 13th Regt. N. Y. S. V., died on the 26th of February. Intelligence of the sad event was conveyed to his wife in the following communication:

Fort Corcoran, Va., March 1, 1862
Mrs. Mary J. Hyland:
Dear Madam: You have doubtless, before this, received the sorrowful intelligence of the death of your husband. The fatal result was as unexpected to us as it could possibly have been to you, for, though very sick, yet, he had commenced to improve and was pronounced out of danger. He received the very best attention from his comrades, having constant attention from Sergt. Hartman, Sergt. Wilson and Corporal Claven; but a sudden change in the weather affected him so much as to cause him to fall rapidly, and he expired about 12 hours thereafter, in the evening of the 26th February. His death was easy, and it is gratifying to me to add, that he seemed to be at peace with all the world, and fully prepares to enter upon the world to come.

From his kind disposition and honorable character, he had so endeared himself to us, that we mourn him as a brother, and I hereby extend to you the condolence and sympathy of his late comrades, all of whom join with me cheerfully. His disease was typhoid pneumonia, following the measles, which in almost all cases proves fatal. Upon his decease, I telegraphed to my father, at Dansville, to inform you and notify us what disposition to make of his remains; but getting no reply, we had today given him a fitting burial. The expenses were borne, as he desired, out of his own funds.

We have marching orders, and shall soon leave this spot; are expecting to go every hour -- it was this that made it impossible for us to wait longer to hear from you. Again tendering to you my deepest sympathies, and desiring that you will not fail to write me if I can be of any further service to you. I am, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Ralph T. Wood, Capt., 13th N. Y. S. V.

The disinterred remains of Mr. Hyland arrived at Canadice on the 7th, and were buried, with military honors, Sunday, the 9th. An appropriate feeling and patriotic discourse was pronounced on the occasion by Elder Justin at the Baptist meeting house.

In Farmington, the 12th May, Mr. Timothy Hyna, aged 60.  While engaged in moving a hive of bees, he was stung in four or five places on the side of the face and neck.  His sons led him about ten rods to a fence, he being apparently unable to walk without aid, and left him to call their mother.  They ran to the house, about 5 rods distant, and ere their return he fell, and expired in less than one hour.  This fatal occurrence should be a warning to others.
