It was at first believed that he had been the victim of a murderous assault, but as a considerable sum of money which he had in his pockets was unmolested, it is believed that he fell from the outside stairway nearby while intoxicated. He died Saturday afternoon.

MRS. JACOB KELLAR Burned to Death in Her Home - Husband in Jail

A fatal fire occurred in Shortsville Thursday evening. About 6 o'clock the house on Aldrich street occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Kellar, was discovered to be on fire. The first to arrive found her clothing on fire and unconscious. In attempting to rescue her body, the flesh came from the bones and the victim lived but a short time. The husband was at home when the fire broke out but it is alleged that he was in a beastly state of intoxication and could give no cause for the fire. It was found necessary to confine him in the lockup overnight. He is an old soldier, but some two years ago was declared incompetent to care for himself, and a committee was appointed to look after him. The dwelling was a complete loss of about $500, insured for $250. Mrs. Kellar was about 65 years of age. It is thought by some that in attempting to light or move a lamp, it was upset. Shortsville has no water works system or other adequate means of fighting fire.

From Geneva Daily Times 22 July 1902

Byron E. Keller,
44 years old, who resided at the corner of Pre-emption road and North street and who was a brakeman employed on the night yard crew of the Lehigh Valley railroad, was run over and killed at 11:15 o'clock last night in the lower yards near the Pre-emption road.  Keller was dragged about eight car lengths and his body was horribly mutilated. The left leg was severed just above the knee, the right leg was cut off near the thigh, and both arms were completely cut off. The body was almost cut in two obliquely across the abdomen, from the left knee to a point a few inches above the right thigh. The brakeman lived about two minutes after he was struck.  Coroner Weyburn was notified.  He arrived on the scene at 11:55 o'clock, and ordered the remains removed to the morgue.  They were afterwards removed to Devaney & Fletcher's undertaking rooms, at the request of the family.  The coroner viewed the remains, and after ascertaining the facts, granted a certificate of death by accident.

The circumstances of Keller's death were told to a TIMES reporter this forenoon by Edward Wade, a fireman on yard engine 566.  Wade did not see Keller when he was run over, but he picked up the brakeman's mangled body just before he expired. Wade said:  "Keller was on the rear of the eastbound 'pick-up' with the Brakeman John Shields, when the accident occurred. The two brakemen stood on the platform of a gondola car loaded with lumber.  The 'pick-up' was backing westward into switch 2, for the purpose of shifting and picking up some __rs.  Our engine, which is the yard engine, stood on the main track, a short distance west of the backing train.  Myself and Engineer William McGrath saw the two customary lights on the rear of the freight.  I turned to do something in the engine, and when I looked out of the window a moment later, I saw only one light on the rear of the backing train.  Someone on the track signalled frantically to our engineer.  The next instant I saw Shields running towards our engine with a lantern.  He came up to me and shouted: 'For God's sake, __ back there; Keller is killed.'  We ran the engine back to where Keller lay.  The body lay across the rail.  The head and shoulders were on the outside of the track, and the legs were on the inside.  Just as we reached Keller he groaned and expired.  I think he must have lived about two minutes after the accident.  Shields says that he and Keller were on the platform when Keller lost his hold and and fell under the wheels.  I broke the news of Keller's death to his wife and family."

Keller had been employed by the Lehigh Valley here for the past three years.  Previous to that time he was a brakeman on the Mohawk division of the Central Hudson.  The deceased was a member of North Presbyterian church and of Geneva tent 292, K. O. T. M.  He is survived by a wife and seven children.  The funeral will take place Thursday morning at 10 o'clock.

Shortsville, N. Y. -
The remains of Jacob Keller, formerly of this village, but for the past several years of Hopewell, were brought here yesterday morning for interment in the Catholic Cemetery situated on the road between here and Clifton Springs. The deceased was a member of Herendeen Post, G. A. R., and about 65 years of age. His wife, Margaret Keller, and he had been residents of this place and lived on Sheldon street for a number of years, when, one night about seven years ago, the house in which they lived caught fire from some unknown cause. It was supposed to be from the explosion of a kerosene lamp and Mrs. Keller was burned to death.



From Geneva Gazette 29 October 1897


Fatal Railroad Accident - Albert Kelley, aged 24 years, son of Thomas Kelley, who resides near Clifton Springs, was run down by the night "flyer" on the Lehigh Railway last Friday night while driving across the tracks near Clifton Springs. Kelley was returning home from Shortsville with a horse and carriage, when, at the first crossing west of the Clifton Springs station, he was struck by a fast passenger train that makes no stops between Manchester and Geneva.  The train was going at a high rate of speed when it struck the carriage containing Kelley.  The carriage was completely cut loose from the horse, which was not injured.  The carriage was reduced to kindling wood and Kelley was thrown high into the air.  The train was stopped as soon as possible and some of the trainmen went back to look for the unfortunate man.  He was found by the side of the track in a bleeding and mangled condition and still alive.  He was picked up and carried to the train and then taken to Geneva, but he expired before the train arrived at the Geneva station. Upon examination, it was found that Kelley's skull was badly fractured and that his left arm was broken. The remains of Kelley were taken to Clifton Springs.

Owing to the fact that the accident happened on a grade crossing, Coroner O. H. Wright, of this place, impanelled a jury to investigate the case.  The jury was composed of the following named:  H. F. Fox, G. A. Peel, F. G. Seibel, E. A. Harris, D. P. Tompkins, R. Lerch, F. Dwyer, W. Burton and E. M. Coxe.  After viewing the remains at the morgue the jury adjourned until Tuesday when they visited the scene of the accident.

From Ontario County Times January 11 1871

We learn from the Phelps Citizen that Mrs. Hannah H. Kelley, wife of Mr. C. P. Kelley, of that place, committed suicide on the afternoon of the 2d instant, by cutting her throat with a razor. She had before attempted to put an end to her life, and it is thought the tendency to self destruction was hereditary in the family. Her husband was absent when the fatal deed of self murder was committed, and her failure to appear when he returned about three o'clock, prompted a search of the premises. We quote further particulars from the Citizen: On his entering a vacant room in the southwest corner of the house, he there discovered a great pool of blood. His worst fears were then aroused, and while the search was being prosecuted, his nearest neighbor, Mr. W. W. Gates, came in on an errand, and Mr. Kelley said, "I am afraid my wife has killer herself. I cannot find her; but see here," after looking at the pool of blood, they both began searching every room, when her body was found in an upstair room in the east part of the house. She was lying on her side, just inside of the door, on the floor, life was not wholly extinct, but having no consciousness; her throat was cut quite around, and not very smoothly. The razor was found on the floor nearby, and was the same instrument she had used two years before. Medical assistance was summoned forthwith, but life lingered but a few breaths after, and she was dead. It is evident that she first cut herself in the room downstairs, and from fright or other reason, passed through several rooms and a long hall and up a steep staircase, closing behind her five doors, to the chamber where she was found. She left no traces of blood, except a little in passing through one door, as if it rubbed off her dress. But in the room where found there was considerable blood on the floor, and finger marks on the door as if she had reached to grasp the latch, and probably sank to the floor where found. It is evident she used the razor a second time or after reaching this room. Her housework had all been neatly done up for the morning, except her beds, and she in all probability, perpetrated the deed soon after Mr. Kelley left. Mrs. Kelley was an excellent woman, a faithful member in the Good Templar Order, and always felt a lively interest for her only child, Thomas, aged about fifteen. There was no worldly trouble or care, if we can judge from her comfortable surroundings, that could have induced her to commit this rash deed. The entire community sympathize with Mr. Kelley and relatives in this dreadful bereavement. Her funeral was attended on Wednesday afternoon. Her age was about forty years.

Frightful Accident - Mr. Caleb Kellogg,
an old and respected citizen of West Bloomfield, was killed by the cars on Wednesday evening.  The particulars as we learn them are as follows:  The train on the "peanut road" (the Batavia branch of the N. Y. Central, left Canandaigua on its usual time Wednesday afternoon, in charge of Conductor Cleveland, and was due at North Bloomfield crossing at about 5 o'clock.  At that point the track passes through a deep cut, which is crossed by a wagon road, from which it is difficult to see or hear an approaching train until one is close to or upon the crossing. When this train was approaching this point at a rapid rate, Mr. Kellogg was also nearing the track in his wagon, and both reached the track crossing at the same time.  The result was, of course, a frightful accident.  Mr. Kellogg's horse was killed instantly and the wagon demolished.  The train was stopped as soon as possible and backed up to the scene of the collision, when Mr. Kellogg was found to be seriously and fatally injured.  He was conveyed to a house near by and an examination showed that several of his ribs and a shoulder blade were broken, a shoulder dislocated and he was terribly bruised in many parts of his body. Death ended his suffering at half-past nine o'clock the same evening.  This violent death of Mr. Kellogg will be greatly mourned in his neighborhood, where he was an honored and useful citizen.

Both legs and one rib were broken.  His name and residence were ascertained from papers and letters found on his person. His remains were brought to his late home in Victor on Sunday last, and his funeral was held on Wednesday, which was attended by the largest number ever assembled at a funeral in that place. The procession following his remains to the grave is said to have been a mile in length.  The ceremonies at the grave were conducted by the Masonic fraternity, of which order he was a prominent and active member, having filled the Master's chair for several years. His sudden death hangs like a pall over the village, and will not soon be forgotten.  He leaves a widow and a daughter about nine years of age to mourn  his untimely death.

The death of Thomas Hosmer Kellogg, once a well-to-do merchant of East Bloomfield, occurred in the town of Hopewell, Wednesday morning. In his youth Mr. Kellogg had a unique experience, perhaps never duplicated in the life of any resident of the county. During the winter of 1825, his father and one Elisha Eggleston, living near Mud Hollow, being great admirers of Governor Clinton, the father of the Erie Canal, and having the utmost confidence in its success, began the building at their homes of a canal boat to ply its waters. They employed a master mechanic named Skillenger to visit Rome, N. Y., and get models of boats used and building materials. Together they finished the boat on June 1st and on the 5th it was loaded on the axles of two strong ox-carts. Early the next morning eight yokes of strong oxen were attached, each yoke having a careful driver. The boat moved off finely to Clinton's ditch at Bushnell's Basin by the way of Victor. Thomas H. Kellogg was the only passenger on the boat from Mud Hollow to its destination and was then nine years old, the only person that ever road on a canal boat on the highways of Bloomfield and Victor. The boat was safely launched in the waters of the Erie canal at Bushnell's Basin at 5 o'clock the same day.

James Kelly,
residing on Coach street, was found dead on Saturday morning near the lumber yard of Albion Ellis on Bemis street. From the fact that a large piece of timber was found across his head and breast, it may be inferred that the unfortunate man met with his tragic fate while appropriating the timber to his own use. He evidently fell while carrying the log over his shoulder, the it is probably the case, that the stick falling with him, gave him the fatal blow. Coroner Hayes held an inquest Saturday evening.

Honeoye, N. Y. - James Kelly,
a farmer near Richmond Mills, died Saturday afternoon, with the confluent form of smallpox. Mr. Kelly has had the disease for some time and would have likely recovered had it not been for his heart which was very weak. The other members of the family to the number of four are recovering very nicely with the disease and no fears are entertained for their recovery. The board of health has the matter well in hand and it is not likely that the disease will spread though Dennis Reardon of Richmond Center has been quarantined as he has symptoms of smallpox. Mr. Reardon worked at Mr. Kelly's when the family were in the early stages of the disease before it was known to be smallpox.

While assisting in switching cars Friday noon, John Kelly, aged 19 years, was killed at the foot of Ontario street. Kelly had charge of the crossing, but thought to have a diversion by assisting the switching crew. He jumped on the front of the engine, from which he slipped. The engine passed over him, horribly mutilating his body. It is said the accident was witnessed by the young man's mother, who lives near the crossing in question. About fifteen years ago the father of young Kelly was killed on the tracks near where the son was killed last week. The deceased was a member of the C. M. B.
