death resulting from septicaemia following a slight operation. She had
been brought to the hospital the day before in a very serious condition

which had been allowed to stand in the cans, and it is supposed that
her succeeding trouble resulted from this poisoning. Her death was a
great shock and her many friends will mourn her early taking away. Mrs.

From Ontario County Journal 13 April 1894
Dennis Mahaney, a well-known character of this village, was found
dead in bed at his home, on Saltonstall street, last Sunday afternoon.
Mahaney lived in the place all alone, and made his entrance and exit
through a window. A whole pane of glass would be a difficult thing to
find in the building, and the windows and doors had been boarded to
keep out the cold. Sunday afternoon the owner of the property, John
Donavan, who generously allowed Mahaney to live in the house, was
looking around the premises, when he came upon the dead body of
Mahaney, lying upon a crudely constructed bed and scantily covered with
clothing. The coroner, Dr. O. J. Hallenbeck, being notified, appointed
the following jury: M. J. McPhillips, C. D. Chisholm, Patrick Connell,
Thomas Linahan, Ambrose Gartland, Will O'Brien, John Cotter, Wm.
Sheehan and Frank Fanning. The jury viewed the remains and then
adjourned until Monday evening. They then met at the Town House and
rendered the following verdict: "The deceased came to his death from
exposure and other natural causes, sometime between the 2d and 8th days
of April, 1894, at his home on Saltonstall street." Since the death of
his mother several years ago, Mahaney had been living alone in the
house, and in the most destitute condition. He had doubtless been dead
several days when found, as he had not been seen about since the Monday
preceding the finding of his remains. He was about 58 years of age.

years of age, died at the family residence in Prospect avenue at 6
o'clock last night. Late Saturday afternoon Mrs. Mahoney was found

Sad Accident - On
Wednesday last, the 28th ult., Coroner Royce of this village, held an

James Malette, editor of the Saturday Review, and one of the
oldest newspaper men in this part of the state, died at his home, 28
North Genesee street, at 4 o'clock this morning, aged 67 years. Mr.
Malette's death was not unexpected, but came as the result of an
illness that had been entirely unlooked for. For the past 10 days he
had suffered from a general breaking down of the nervous system. The
funeral will take place at an hour Wednesday not yet decided upon by
the family of the deceased. The remains will be placed temporarily in
the vault of Glenwood cemetery, and later removed to Clifton Springs
for interment. The deceased is survived by his wife; two children,
Frederick A. Malette and Elizabeth Malette; and a sister, Mrs. John
Garlock, of Palmyra.
James Malette has been prominent in newspaper circles here and
elsewhere for nearly half a century. He was born at Veteran, Chemung
county, in 1833. He attended school at Havana, graduated and taught
school. Afterward he engaged in the newspaper business in Havana.
Shortly he came to Geneva and was engaged in the office of the Geneva
Courier, then edited and published by S. C. Cleveland. In 1853 Mr.
Malette went to New York to study for a position on the staff of the
Evening Post. In 1860 he became an editor of that paper. During this
office he was married to Miss Rachael McKendrick, of New York. Mr.
Malette represented his paper at the polls during the draft riots.
William Cullen Bryant was at that time editor-in-chief of the Post, and
Charles H. Nordoff was managing editor. In 1867, in company with George
J. Reid, he purchased the Binghamton Republican, of which Mr. Malette
became editor. A letter from Mr. Bryant, now in the possession of the
family of the deceased, recommended the young editor to the people of
Binghamton. The Republican was at that time the only Republican daily
in the Tioga district, and contributed materially in the election of T.
C. Platt to congress. This was the beginning of Platt's political
career. In 1874 Mr. Malette's health failed him and he forsook
journalism for two years.
In 1876, Mr. Malette came to this city, then village. He purchased the
Courier, which he afterwards sold to W. O. Bunn and Elon G. Salisbury.
He then began the publication of the newspapers with which his name has
been identified in latter years, the Saturday Review, the Ontario
County News Letter and the Seneca County News Letter. Up to the past
few years, Mr. Malette's work had been exclusively that of a
journalist. But owing to failing health the bulk of the work was turned
over to F. A. Malette, well-known as president of the board of public
works. Mr. Malette remained manager and editor of the Review up to the
time of his death, however.

From Ontario Repository and Messenger 21 June 1876
On Thursday, June 1st, Mr. Merritt M. Mallory, a grocer
produce dealer in this village, left home to go east as far as
Poughkeepsie, where he was formerly in business, to attend to some
financial matters at that place. He arrived safely at his destination,
paid up his obligations there, and after calling upon several friends,
boarded a train and started, as was thought, directly for home. This
was on Saturday, June 3d. Since that time his family and friends
awaited anxiously his return, but in spite of the constant and
incessant inquiry among friends and business relations to find him, no
positive information was received until Saturday last, when the firm of
Crouse & Co., Syracuse, who are wholesale grocery dealers,
telegraphed to the family that a body answering the description of Mr.
Mallory had been found in the canal near that city, on June 4th. The
only reason for supposing it was Mr. Mallory's body was the general
appearance, as he had been in the habit of dealing with them quite
largely, and thus formed a personal acquaintance. They sent also a safe
key which had been found upon the body, and which being tried was found
to open the safe where Mr. M. was in the habit of keeping his books.
Not only that, it corresponded exactly in number and comparison with a
key left in the custody of Mr. Mallory's son. When the deceased left
home he had quite a large sum of money in his possession, somewhere
between three and four hundred dollars, but only a trifling amount was
found upon the body, less than five dollars. There is no doubt but that
he was foully dealt with, as the head presented an appearance as if
struck with a heavy instrument. Mr. Mallory had but recently removed
from Poughkeepsie, although an old resident, having been in the grocery
business here off and on for many years. He leaves a wife, his second,
a daughter and two sons, besides many relatives and friends who mourn
his sad fate. His remains were brought here yesterday afternoon, and
the funeral was attended from the cars.

of his health.
From Victor Herald 17 March 1905
The community was startled last Saturday afternoon by the news of
the death of Patrick Malone, at his home about three and
one-half miles southwest of this village. A serious illness last
September revealed the fact that he was suffering from a vulvular
trouble of the heart, and since that time he has been gradually
failing. His death was not entirely unexpected, but the final summons
came so suddenly that it found family and friends but illy prepared for
its shock. Patrick Malone was born in Tellamore, Ireland March 17th,
1836. At the age of twenty he came to the United States and first
located in Canandaigua, where he resided for two years. The remainder
of his long and useful life was spent in Victor. In 1861 he married
Mary, daughter of Michael and Catherine Carter, who survives him.
Though his earlier training had been in mercantile lines, Mr. Malone
chose, after coming to this country, to take up the business of
farming, in which he was very successful. He was a prominent and loyal
member of St. Patrick's R. C. church of this village, to the support of
which he contributed liberally. Seldom, if ever, is a man more
thoroughly respected by his townsmen than was Patrick Malone.
Aside from his loyal and devoted wife, he is survived by eight
children: five daughters, Mrs. Nellie Mead, Mrs. Lizzie Loney, Mrs.
Anna French, all of Victor; Mrs. Susie Boughton of Holcomb and Mrs.
Sarah Boughton of Buffalo; and three sons, Edward T., Florance M. and
Frank P., all of Victor. The funeral was held on Tuesday at 10:30
o'clock at St. Patrick's church. It was very largely attended.
From Shortsville Enterprise 1 August 1929
As the result of a fall beneath car wheels in the Lehigh Valley
Railroad yards at Manchester about 1 o'clock on Saturday morning last, Edward Maloney, aged
47 years, of East Main street, Shortsville, died about an hour later in
the Memorial Hospital in Canandaigua. Maloney, who was employed as a
switchman, was riding on top of a string of cars, which, when they were
given a severe jolt, caused him to lose his balance and fall down
between the cars. The wheels of the car following over both of his
legs, crushing them so badly that had he lived both would have been
amputated. Railroad men who saw Maloney right after the accident said
that they had seldom seen such a display of iron nerve, for Maloney did
not lose consciousness, but sat up and informed his fellow workers that
he had lost both legs. It was not until he reached the hospital, where
nurses began to undress him, that consciousness failed him. Maloney had
been employed in the Manchester yards for many years and was considered
a good worker. It is a coincidence that his father was also killed many
years ago in a grade-crossing accident at Littleville, having been
struck by a New York Central train while driving over what was then
known as the Maloney crossing.
The survivors are his wife, who was formerly Miss Sadie Hennessey; two
sons, Raymond Maloney of Palmyra and Kenneth Maloney of Shortsville;
two daughters, Mrs. Lester Romeiser of Shortsville and Miss Ruth
Maloney of Rochester; a sister, Miss Ruth Scott of Rochester; and a
brother, Benjamin Maloney, whose place of residence is unknown. Funeral
services were held from St. Dominic's Catholic church at 9:30 o'clock
on Tuesday morning, conducted by the pastor, Rev. J. E. Napier. The
burial was made in St. Rose cemetery.
From Ontario County Chronicle 25 March 1903
Mrs. Frank Maloney of Hopewell died at her home on Sunday evening,
March 22, aged 70 years. Mrs. Maloney was in Canandaigua on Saturday
doing some shopping. She was to return to Chapinville on the 6:10 train
in the evening, but missed it. Instead of waiting for the next train,
she started to walk home. The journey proved too much of a task for a
person of her advanced age. In some way she wandered into a field where
she was found by a Mr. Ryan Sunday afternoon. When found she was still
alive although in an exhausted condition. She was removed to her home
and Dr. Donovan of Canandaigua was summoned. Everything possible was
done to relieve her, but she grew gradually worse and finally died as
stated. She is survived by a husband and four sons, John of Reed's
Corners and Peter and Michael of Hopewell, and Stephen who resides in
the West. The funeral will be held from St. Mary's church this morning,
the Rev. Father Dougherty officiating.

A Sad Accident - On Tuesday afternoon there happened at the Wiborn
crossing of the railroad, one of the saddest accidents which we have
ever been called upon to record, by which Mr. Timothy Maloney of
lost his life. It seems that Mr. Maloney and Michael Ryan
were returning on the railroad track to their home, from their day's
work, and when near the Wiborn crossing, they saw an engine and caboose
coming from the west. Mr. Ryan stepped off from the track, but Mr.
Maloney kept on, expecting to reach the highway before the engine would
pass him. This was the fatal thought which cost him his life. Just as
he was stepping from the last cross-tie, the engine struck him and
threw him against the signal man's house. He received internal
injuries, and only survived a short time. Mr. Maloney resided near Mr.
Wiborn's. He leaves a wife to mourn his loss. He was a very exemplary
man, and was well liked wherever he was known.
