From Geneva Gazette 8 January 1869

SUDDEN DEATH - Our citizens were unsettled on Sunday morning last by tidings of the death of Mr. John Ide. The report proved, alas, too true.  Only the day previous he was attending to his usual vocation as a blacksmith, seemingly in as good health as usual.  At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, while shoveling snow from in front of his shop, he was stricken down in a apoplectic fit, and conveyed home in an unstable condition. He did not regain consciousness or speech, and died about 4 o'clock the following morning.

Mr. Ide had been a resident and active business man among us for more than forty years. However rough the exterior, within there was a good true heart, ever ready to sympathize with the distressed, and to beat with honest indignation over oppression and wrong of every name and nature. He had long been a sufferer from rheumatic affliction, but it was hardly conceived that the Destroyer would at length strike him in the fearfully sudden form of apoplexy. The sad event will be received with profound sorrow among a wide circle of acquaintances. The funeral of Mr. Ide took place from his residence on Water street on Wednesday afternoon last, attended by the largest concourse of sorrowing friends that has been seen in our village on any similar occasion for many years.



From Geneva Daily Times 25 October 1918

The following bit of history of Fayette Ingraham, whose death occurred at his home here on Monday morning, March 29, was written by Mr. Ingraham about four years ago, and by him given to Theodore Greenman with a request that it be read at his funeral, which was done, and also that it be copied and sent to The Naples Record for publication:

Fayette Ingraham was born October 31st, 1846, in the town of South Bristol, Ontario County, N. Y., and he lived in the towns of South Bristol, Naples and Italy until 1870, when he was married to Flora E. Sutton, and lived for one year in West Hollow; in the spring of 1871 they moved to South Bristol. There were born to them two children, Minnie L. Wesley, who resides near the head of Honeoye Lake, and Fred R. Ingraham, who resides in Holcomb, N. Y. The wife, Flora E. Sutton Ingraham, died February 27, 1903.

Church of Bristol Center about the year 1891, and later was a member of the band of Gospel Workers of America, which was organized in the town of South Bristol in the spring of 1873. Mr. Ingraham was elected town clerk of the Town of South Bristol, and faithfully served the town as such for thirty-eight years, until sickness and disability compelled him to resign.

He was the youngest of six children of the late Benjamin and Almira Ingraham. He was an honorary member of the Boswell Corners W. C. T. U., and a Sunday School teacher, and a lover of all good things, and especially the temperance cause and everything that tended to the advancement of Christ's cause and kingdom here on earth, and to help make the community better in which he lived. He had been an invalid since the year 1885, at times a great sufferer, but he trusted in his Saviour to help him bear his sufferings, which He always did.



From Naples Record 5 March 1903

Flora E. Ingraham died at her home in South Bristol Feb. 27th, 1903, aged 52 years and 29 days. She was the daughter of the late Myron C. Sutton and was born in West Hollow in the town of Naples where she spent the most of her life to the age of 19 years, when she was married to Fayette Ingraham of the same place in the spring of 1870 and lived the first year of her married life in West Hollow. In the spring of 1871 they removed to the home where they have since resided and where she died. There were born to them two children, Minnie L. Wesley, who resides near the head of Honeoye Lake, and Fred R. Ingraham, who resides at Cheshire, N. Y. She had been a great sufferer from rheumatism for about 26 years and no one knew but herself how much she suffered. But the dear Heavenly Father knows and he who does not willingly afflict and who knew the end from the beginning, knew how much to send to bring her to him, and when near the end of life's journey, she sought and found her Saviour precious to her soul. She sent for Rev. Greenman to baptize her and it was also her request that he should preach her funeral sermon and she left her dying message to the world that he should give it out at her funeral to warn all the unsaved not to put off the day of salvation as she had done but to seek the Saviour without delay as delays were dangerous and she only regretted that she had not found him earlier in life. She was truly converted and saved as we had the witness of the spirit, and her faith was bright and clear and when suffering untold agony she refused all opiates and said she wished to suffer with Jesus and would reign with him in glory; and her message to her children was to meet her in Heaven where she would be waiting and watching for them. Yes, she has gone to Heaven and she is now at rest with her dear Saviour in his loving arms to suffer and die no more. The funeral services were held at the house, March 2d at 10 o'clock A. M., the text being from Romans 6:23 and the remains were laid to rest in Rose Ridge Cemetery.

Canandaigua, N. Y., Aug. 9 - Fred C. Ingraham,
43, committed suicide by hanging at his home in South Main Street here. His body was found suspended from a rafter in a building in the rear of his home by his daughter, Isabelle. Coroner Leon A. Stetson of this city viewed the body and said he believed death to have been due to strangulation as there was no indication that the man's neck was broken. He had been dead about an hour, in the physician's opinion. Despondency over ill health is believed to have been the cause of the suicide. Mr. Ingraham underwent an operation about a month ago and had appeared despondent since that time relatives said. He leaves his wife and six children.



From Naples Record 19 July 1873

Died, on Saturday last, towards evening, the bell announced the death of Hanford Ingraham, aged 63 years. He had been gradually sinking for two weeks, and, although realized by the immediate neighbors, it was a sad surprise to his many friends. He had had poor health for some years, but able to be about attending to his ordinary business; and had but just returned from Rochester to close an extensive contract in relation to the patterns and manufacture of a valuable coal cooking stove, when he was prostrated. His life lamp gradually went out at the close of a warm July day as the last mellow rays of the setting sun were fading away on the great hill in front of his residence. Of the many virtues of the deceased we need not speak, for all know them, and the quiet, good man well-known and beloved. His funeral was largely attended by the relatives and friends from the Baptist church on Sunday afternoon, and his remains were interred in Rose Ridge.

From Ontario County Journal 6 March 1874

Canadice -
The community was shocked yesterday morning by the news of the sudden death of one of our old citizens, Mr. Hiram Ingraham.  He went alone into the woods on Saturday to draw logs to the shingle mill of the Branch Brothers.  He was unable to give an intelligent account of what happened, if indeed he knew.  Whether he burst a blood vessel, or received a blow from the lever he was using to load his log, or both, he was unable to say.  His distress was such that he thought he would die on the spot, though he had sufficient command of himself to hitch his team.  After a time he succeeded in driving home, a distance of half or three quarters of a mile.  Dr. Gray, of Springwater, was called at once; but he was beyond mortal help.  He was buried today after a very appropriate address by Elder S. M. Dayton.  Mr. Ingraham was a very hard-working and successful farmer. If the man who makes two blades of grass grow where but one grew before is a benefactor of his race, he was entitled to that distinction.

Canadice, N. Y. -
Little more than a year ago, Frank H. Ingraham was united in marriage to Miss Millie McNair. Hardly had the young couple been congratulated when Mrs. Ingraham was seized with lung trouble, and though able physicians did all in their power, and despite the care of a loving husband, the dread disease gradually fastened its hold and last Friday she calmly and peacefully fell asleep in Jesus., being a little less than twenty-one years old. The deceased had lived in town for some time previous to her marriage and was a favorite with all her acquaintances. Her quiet, pleasant way and strong christian character gave proof that she "had been with Jesus and learned of Him." Though lingering on a bed of disease, she did not murmur but patiently waited the summons, "come up higher." The funeral service was held from the church on Sunday, Rev. E. J. Cook speaking from Jeremiah, 15th, 9th, the 3d clause. The bereaved husband has the sympathy of all sympathetic hearts in this dark hour of affliction. May they whom she loved so well look for strength from the same source, knowing that He is mighty to save.
