From Victor Herald 3 August 1895

George Loomis, a well-known and life-long resident of the town of Farmington, died at his home Tuesday evening. Mr. Loomis has been in poor health for nearly a year and his demise was not wholly unexpected. Mr. Loomis was born in Hartford, Ct., Dec. 7th, 1818; when a very small boy he came to Farmington, and by industry and perseverance he amassed a competence. He was always foremost in every work of public improvement, roads, schools, etc. He was Supervisor of the town of Farmington several terms and always took a lively interest in public affairs of the state and nation. He was a man of excellent business qualifications and sound judgment, and many a young man struggling in the battle of life has looked to him for advice and assistance, and never in vain. He was in every sense a self-made man. Beginning life with nothing, he obtained a good education and accumulated a fine farm property; his residence and surroundings are among the finest in this county.

About fifty years ago he married Hannah Maria Ketchum. Six children were born to them. Mrs. Loomis died about three years ago, there survive him two sons and two daughters, B. H. Loomis, Mrs. L. L. Morse, Mrs. G. E. Lapham, of Farmington, and L. G. Loomis, of this village. The funeral was held from his late home Friday afternoon, the services were conducted by Rev. C. N. Frost. The interment was at Boughton Hill cemetery.

She leaves a husband, two sons and two daughters, Mrs. L. L. Morse, Mrs. Geo. E. Lapham, B. H. Loomis, of Farmington, and L. G. Loomis of this village. Mrs. Loomis was a woman greatly beloved in the community, and will be missed in many places beside the home circle, where, for half a century she has been the loving help-meet and devoted mother. A large circle of friends will deeply sympathize with the bereaved family.

Rushville, N. Y. -
This community was greatly shocked by the death of James Loomis on Wednesday morning. About a week previous he was taken with the grippe, and not using proper care, it was soon followed by pneumonia  in severe form from the first. Dr. Jewett was called on Monday in consultation with Dr. Wilkin, but little hope was given for his recovery. A trained nurse was summoned, and everything done for him, but he was too ill. He was a man about 50 years of age, strong and active, extensively engaged in farming and buying stock to ship. About 20 years ago he married Wealthy Jackson, who survives him. They had adopted a little boy, left by her sister, Mrs. Foster, who died a year ago. They also have an adopted daughter. His aged and blind mother is left, and lives in the house which was the old homestead. Mrs. Loomis has universal sympathy in her great affliction, which is doubly heavy in that her own health is very poor. Mr. Loomis was a very kind man in his family, and his death is a great loss to them. There are three brothers, Benjamin in Battle Creek, Mich., Allen and Miner; two sisters, Minerva, Mrs. Densmore of Potter, and Nettie, a twin sister.

Tuesday morning, at his home on Gibson street, occurred the death of John J. Loonie, in his 61st year. Mr. Loonie had been in feeble health for many years past, and the severe weather had sapped his vitality and hastened the end. Captain Loonie, by which name he was often mentioned, was a native of Dublin, Ireland, coming to this country when a boy of 8 years. In New York city he learned the marble cutter's trade, and developed considerable skill as a sculptor and artist. In 1863 Mr. Loonie enlisted as a private in Company K, 20th N. Y. Cavalry, of which company he was prominent as an organizer, and soon rose from private to second and first lieutenants and captain. He served until the mustering out of the company, July 31, 1865. Shortly after the close of the war, Mr. Loonie came to this village and pursued his chosen vocation, establishing the Canandaigua Marble Works. Aside from being an expert marble cutter, he was an artistic designer, the soldiers' memorial tablets in the court house in this village, being an evidence of his skill. Mr. Loonie's work was much sought in surrounding towns and counties, as well as in his own town. In Woodlawn cemetery, New York, Mr. Loonie erected considerable work, and it was on one occasion, while thus engaged, that he was taken ill and lay at death's door for several days.

Mr. Loonie has been a member of the Congregational church for over a quarter of a century. The funeral services were conducted at his late home Thursday  morning, by Rev. Charles H. Dickinson.

Honeoye, N. Y. - 
On Friday night between 10 and 11 o'clock, residents of Main and Church streets were startled by the cry of fire. Upon investigation, flames were seen bursting from the Loury house on Church street. Arriving on the scene of action, they were horrified to find Mrs. James Loury rolling on the ground, her clothing a seething mass of flames, and her grandson, Fred Stacey, and a neighbor, Frank Allen, tearing the blazing garments from her body and burning their own hands in a frightful manner in the attempt. Just how the accident happened will doubtless never be known. She had been caring for her husband, who has been confined to his bed for some months and was leaving the room with a small lamp in her hand, when she either dropped the lamp or it exploded, spilling the burning oil over her clothing and the carpet. Her screams awakened her two grandsons, who were sleeping in another part of the house and who, with other willing hands extinguished the flames, which had gained considerable headway in the house. Medical aid was summoned and everything possible was done to relieve her suffering. She lingered in a semi-conscious condition until 9 o'clock Saturday morning, when death came to her relief. Her body was so frightfully burned that the undertaker was obliged to place it immediately in the casket as the flesh dropped from the bones upon moving. The family have been sorely afflicted. The husband, James Loury, has been confined to his bed for months and is now hovering between life and death. For the past four weeks a sister of the deceased, who resided with her, has also been ill and confined to her bed.

The deceased was born in the town of Canadice about 65 years ago, the daughter of John C. Spencer. She lived in that town until about 20 years ago, when she came to this village, where she has since resided. She was twice married. Survivors are her invalid husband, one son and two grandsons; besides several brothers and sisters. The funeral was held from her late home on Monday afternoon, Rev. Dr. Arthur C. Dill officiating. The interment was in Lakeview.

From Victor Herald 10 May 1901
 
Last evening the body of William Love, who mysteriously disappeared from his home in Canandaigua, April 15th, was found in the flooded flats near the mouth of the Sucker brook by some fisherman, who immediately notified Coroner O. J. Hallenbeck. The body was removed to the Z. C. Curtice undertaking establishment where it was identified later by relatives and friends. The remains were badly decomposed, the features bloated and lacerated so that the boots and wearing apparel were the only means of identification. The authorities are at a loss to account for the disfiguration of the of the face, unless it was accidentally done by some of the numerous fishermen who are spearing suckers in the brook every night. Deceased was aged about 30 years, and is survived by an aged father, two brothers and two sisters. Love was last seen about 11 o'clock on the night of April 15th, by Officer Mulligan. It is stated that to a friend, whom Love urged to drink with him on that last night, he said, "You'd better drink with me now, you'll never get another chance. I'm on my way to the lake to drown myself." The case will be thoroughly investigated by Coroner Hallenbeck and an effort made to account for the marks of violence on the man's face and hands. A significant fact is that Love's hands were gripped tightly about some bunches of grass, indicating that he had made a struggle for his life.

John Lowe died quite suddenly at his home on Salt street last week Friday a.m., aged 33 years. He had been a great sufferer from consumption and other diseases for a number of years, but was about the house and walked from one room to another but a few moments before his death. He fully realized his condition, and it is a comfort for his friends to feel that, though his departure was sudden, he was willing and prepared for the summons. Besides a widow he leaves a father, mother and three sisters, all residents of this town. Funeral services were held at the Methodist church Sunday afternoon, where a large audience gathered to show their sympathy for the family, and Rev. D. D. Davis made appropriate remarks. The interment was in the new cemetery. Mrs. Lowe desires to express her thanks to the many kind friends who assisted at the funeral of her late husband, and especially to all those who contributed and arranged the beautiful flowers.

Miss Janet Lowthorp
died at her residence, 477 Main st., last Tuesday - the last of her family.  She was born in this city, a daughter of Thomas Lowthorp.  She received thorough education as a pianist and organist and for many years presided at the Trinity Church organ, and later at such instrument in St. Peter's Church.  She had one brother, the late Samuel Lowthorp, and two sisters, Mrs. Elizabeth Angell and Mrs. Edward Kingsland.  The funeral will take place from Trinity Church tomorrow afternoon at 5 o'clock.



From Geneva Courier 1 July 1874

Mrs. Lowthorp, wife of Samuel Lowthrop, Esq., of this village, died suddenly on Sunday afternoon at her residence on Main street.  She had for several years been in poor health and consequently had not mingled extensively in society, but by the circle of friends and acquaintances who knew her, she was greatly beloved.  She was a quiet, unobtrusive, gentle woman, and was highly respected and esteemed by those who knew her.  Though in ill health no immediate fatal termination of her sufferings were anticipated, and her death was at last sudden and unexpected.  She is sincerely mourned by all who knew her rare and christian qualities.



From Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 26 September 1891

Samuel Lowthrop,
who had been in the employ of J. W. Smith & Co., as bookkeeper for over thirty years, died at his residence in Geneva Wednesday, after a lingering illness. Mr. Lowthrop was one of Geneva's oldest citizens. In early years he was engaged in mercantile business there.



From Geneva Gazette 10 August 1860

Died in Geneva, the 2d of August inst., Mr. Thomas Lowthrop, in the 78th year of his age. Mr. Lowthrop was born in London, and came to the U. States when a boy. He was brought up to the mercantile business in first class houses in Albany and New York, and removed from the latter city to Geneva October, 1810, under the auspices of Mr. Ellas Kane, with a large stock of goods, and opened a store in company with his brother-in-law, the late Col. Wm. Lily, in the spacious building in Main street then just vacated by Judge Nicholas. During the war of 1812, and at its close in 1815, this was, next to that of Col. S. Colt's, the most flourishing business establishment in or near the village. The change consequent upon the transition from war to peace affected the mercantile business of the whole country by depreciation in prices and almost all engaged in such pursuits became embarrassed. Mr. L. was in this unfortunate class, and never able to reestablish himself permanently. Shortly after, he was afflicted by the loss of sight, first of one eye, and then of the other. In this sad condition he struggled on, cheerful amidst adversity, Providence having raised him up kind friends to sustain him. In early life he had improved his time and opportunities by storing his mind with a large stock of useful knowledge, derived from the choicest English literature, and by observation on men and things. This proved a source of great comfort to him at a subsequent period, when deprived of sight, rendering his conversation which was generally interspersed with aucedate, both interesting and instructive.

During the last two years his health has gradually failed, and with it his hearing, until he became nearly deaf; which consequently added to his sorrows. These were somewhat mitigated by the assiduous attentions of a tender wife with whom he had lived in the conjugal state 54 years, and by affectionate children and other friends, who survive to mourn their loss. Mr. Lowthrop was a member of the Episcopal church and gave satisfactory evidence of his reliance for salvation on God, through faith in the merits of a crucified and risen Redeemer.



From Geneva Gazette 20 July 1894

His many warm friends and acquaintances, especially his loving brethren of the I. O. O. F. were deeply shocked and grieved to learn on Wednesday last that Charles Lozier had succumbed to the disease which prostrated him about ten days previously. At first it was supposed to be merely a case of severe cold, but instead of yielding to treatment it developed into pleuro-pneumonia. It was even thought in the morning that he had overcome this last phase of the disease and was on the road to recovery. Later in the day he seemed to be adversely affected by the extreme heat, under which he steadily sank until at 6:30 o'clock, he breathed his last. Thoughout his illness he had the assiduous and brotherly care of the fraternity to which he was strongly attached and of whose honors in the subordinate lodge he had received the highest. He closed his term as N. G. June 30th last, and was of course the sitting Past Grand when death severed these as well as all earthly ties.

The deceased was a son of the late Thos. Lozier, a former resident of Geneva. Mrs. Winnifred Parker is a sister. He leaves a wife and two children. He was a blacksmith by trade, but of late was in the employ of John Kaufman of Trumansburg, as a traveling agent for the sale of cigars. The funeral will take place tomorrow at 2 p.m. from the house, No. 40 John St. The entire service will be conducted by the Odd Fellows in accordance with their ritual, and the members of Old Castle Lodge will attend in a body. Interment in Glenwood cemetery.
