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.

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 and 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.

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.

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.

From Ontario County Journal 23 January 1880

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 this town 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.
