From Victor Herald 12 March 1892

Obituary - Richard Moul
was born in Columbia county, at Claverack on the Hudson, the 7th of November, 1792. His health during his long life was remarkable, and sickness to him was scarcely known. In a conversation with one of our townspeople, about two years ago, he said, "I have never been laid up with sickness a whole day in my life." He well remembered the war of 1812, and hired a man to enlist in his place, saying "that was as near as he came to being a veteran of the war of 1812." He voted at every presidential election, until his recent feebleness, on account of his advanced age prevented his getting to the polls. He was a Whig in politics as long as that party lasted, and afterwards a Republican, and voted for Fremont. He never made any open profession of religion, nor joined any church. His parents belonged to the Dutch Reformed church. In commenting on the changes since his early days, he said, "I remember, when a boy, that the minister in our place closed his sermon one Sunday, by saying that he had a barrel of the best kind of harvest rum, and wanted his people to get their supply of him." This would sound strange as a supplement to a sermon these days. Mr. Moul stated that the first days work he did on coming to Victor thirty-nine years ago, was to assist in the erection of the iron fence in front of Mrs. Calvin Vanness' house on West Main street, which is still in good condition. During the past few years he resided with his daughter, Mrs. Bond at North Bloomfield, at which place he died last Saturday, with interment on Boughton Hill on Monday.

Fatal Accident -
At about ten o'clock yesterday morning, Robert Mower, aged 44 years, baggageman on the Naples Branch of Lehigh Valley railroad, whose home is in Naples, was killed a few rods west of the Geneva station.  He was assisting in shifting cars at the time, and in attempting to climb the ladder or steps on the last freight car of the train, with flag in hand, he missed his hold of the iron bar on top of the car and fell backward to the track below.  Just then shifting engine 147, run by Dan'l Clary, came upon him and squeezed the prostrate man between the brake car and track.  The engine was stopped within a few feet, but the work was done, as Mower died within two minutes -- life crushed out of him.  Coroner Weyburn has the case under investigation.  Mower leaves a wife and little girl 12 years old, who were notified by telegraph.

From Ontario County Journal 8 March 1901

Naples, N. Y. - 
It is a profound sorrow to record the death of Robert G. Mower, baggageman on the Naples branch of the Lehigh Valley railroad. He was killed at Geneva, Monday, at 10:25 a.m., being crushed between engine and freight car. He was in the act of climbing upon the car when he slipped and fell. The engine was so close to him that it caught him before he could extricate himself. He lived but 15 minutes. He was one of the most popular men on the branch and once conductor. Sickness laid him off and left him somewhat crippled, but he would return to the work though really unfit for it. He leaves an invalid wife and a daughter of 16, who are overwhelmed with grief. An inquest was held in Geneva and the body was sent to Naples Monday night. The funeral was at the Presbyterian church Wednesday. There was a vast concourse. The railroad men sent in a great profusion of flowers. The burial was in Rushville, the childhood home of the deceased. This is the first fatality that has occurred on this branch of the road. Mr. Mower was 44 years of age and had been railroading for 20 years.



From Geneva Daily Times 28 June 1909

Clayton Mowrer,
a farmhand employed on the W. F. Forden fruit farm, located about two miles southwest of the city, committed suicide at an early hour yesterday morning. The deed was done with a razor and the man, who is believed to have been temporarily deranged owing to illness, severed both jugular veins and the carotid arteries. He was discovered a short time after he had committed the deed but not until after he had died. Mowrer came her about three months ago from Strawberry Ridge, Pa. He secured employment on the Forden farm; has lived in a tenant house on the farm with his wife since that time. About a week ago Mr. Mowrer was taken ill with the mumps and he has suffered much pain. For the past three days he was in a highly nervous state and several times expressed a dread of having to undergo an operation which was suggested by the attending physician, Dr. Jennings, and also a dread of "being obliged to go to the hospital." Saturday night Mrs. Mowrer became somewhat alarmed over the symptoms displayed by her husband and again called the physician. Mr. Mowrer seemed in a very nervous state but after receiving treatment seemed easier and was resting quietly when the physician left.

Dr. Jennings warned the people at the house to keep a close watch on him, however, and Mrs. Mowrer attended her husband and watched him all during Saturday night. Early yesterday morning she was overcome by exhaustion and fell asleep. When she awoke her husband was missing. The woman, fearing that something had happened to him, immediately started to search for him. Mowrer was found in an outhouse, where he had gone, it is supposed immediately after leaving the house. His throat was cut practically from ear to ear. A razor which he had taken from the house was used. Dr. Jennings was immediately called but the man had been dead for some time before the physician arrived. Coroner Eiseline was also notified. After viewing the remains he granted a certificate of death from suicide. Mowrer was 34 years of age. His widow and parents survive him.

Sad Drowning Accident -
Last Saturday night Matthew Mulcahy, the thirteen-year-old son of Thos. Mulcahy, a resident of North street, was missed from home.  Being a very dutiful boy, his mother felt that something was wrong or he would not be out so late.  A party set out to find him, and did not desist from their labors until between seven and eight o'clock Sunday morning, the remains of the unfortunate boy were found in Marsh creek on the property of Miles Sweeney.  When found the boy's clothes were on the bank.  His hair was filled with dirt and his left ear was cut.  He had evidently been in bathing and accidentally drowned.  After the body had been removed to the home of the bereaved parents, it became whispered about that there might possibly be something more than mere accident to the drowning.  To get at the facts tending to throw light on the subject, Coroner Maynard summoned the following jury:  Geo. H. Myers, foreman:  Chas. D. Bennett, L. L. Howe, F. C. Kent, Chas. Webster, and F. T. Savage.  After viewing the remains, the inquest adjourned until Tuesday afternoon.  After having examined fourteen witnesses, another adjournment was made until evening.  Twenty-one witnesses were examined during the entire proceedings.  It was thought by many, and particularly by the immediate relatives of Mulcahy, that Ernest, the young son of Fred Van Huben, was with Mulcahy at the time of the accident, and could tell something about it.  An impartial investigation was made by the coroner's jury.  Following is the verdict:  "We find that Matthew Mulcahy came to his death by drowning in Marsh Creek, on Miles Sweeney's property, on Saturday evening, July 26th, while bathing."  The words are plain and unmistakable.  No blame attaches to anyone.  It is fair to presume the jury went according to the evidence.  Whatever one's personal opinion may be, it would be manifestly unfair for us to bolt the verdict, and shoulder any blame on Van Huben. Perhaps at some future day, new light may be thrown upon the matter.  We trust such may be the case, to the satisfaction of all the interested parties. Meanwhile we extend our most earnest sympathy to the bereaved parents and family.  The funeral took place from St. Francis de Sales Church Wednesday morning at 9 o'clock.

From Ontario County Journal 27 January 1888

Last Monday afternoon at about a quarter past five o'clock, a terrible accident occurred at the Main street crossing of the New York Central railroad in which James Mulligan lost his life and Martha Bennett, aged 12 years, the youngest daughter of Thomas H. Bennett, Esq., miraculously escaped a similar fate. Owen Mulligan and his deceased son were both employed at the gas works, and on Monday afternoon when the father started for the works to relieve the son, little Mattie Bennett who was at the Mulligan home on Mechanic street after milk, was invited to ride down and return with James, as she had frequently done before. She returned home with the milk and then joined Mr. Mulligan in the cutter. On the return trip they reached the Main street crossing just about the time the 5:12 eastern express train was due, and as they approached the track at a rapid pace, the train came suddenly dashing around the curve beyond the town house. A sleigh loaded with ice had stopped below the crossing, and Mulligan was warned by both the flagman and switchman to stop also. He at first tried to pull up, but evidently concluded that his horse was going too fast to stop below the track, and whipped him on in an effort to cross before the train. The train came across Main street at higher rate of speed than usual, and Mulligan's cutter reached the center of the main track just in time to get caught. The young man was on the side next to the engine and was struck first, being thrown violently to the ground clear of the track. The little girl was providentially caught together with the remains of the cutter on the cowcatcher, and thereby saved from death. The train ran perhaps eight or ten rods before it came to a stop. It was just in time, for the little one's feet were then dragging upon the track and in a very short time she would have been under the wheels. She was taken to the Canandaigua Hotel and Dr. Beahan was sent for. Mulligan was picked up insensible and in a dying condition. He was taken to the room of the chief of police at the station house, where he was attended by Drs. Walmsley, Hallenbeck and Smith. They readily saw the man could not live, although it was impossible to make an examination. He was at once attended by Rev. Father English, and his relatives were sent for. A heart-rending scene occurred when his young wife reached the station. "Oh Jimmy! Jimmy!" she cried but there was no response from the unconscious prostrate form of her formerly energetic and ambitious husband. The physicians were compelled to tell the unfortunate woman the truth, and prepare her for the worst. Mulligan was taken to his home later in the evening but he never rallied from the time of the accident to the time of his death at about six o'clock Tuesday morning. Some time after the accident Monday evening, an examination was made of the little girl but no broken bones were found. There were severe bruises, but nothing of an alarming nature was discovered.

There is no doubt but that it was only her remarkable presence of mind that saved her life. After she had recovered sufficiently from the shock to converse, she stated that they did not see the train coming until they had reached the first track, the Batavia train which was standing upon the side track, having obstructed their view. The horse, she says, became unmanageable, and in this she is borne out by other witnesses. She said there was no time to do anything. She cried: Jimmy! Oh, Jimmy! we're going to be killed, and threw herself quickly into the bottom of square box cutter when the crash came. She evidently clutched something, and it is a question whether she was at any time utterly unconscious, for she must have retained her hold until the train stopped. At that time the debris of the cutter was slipping from the pilot and Messrs. Reynolds, the gateman, and Burke, the yardmaster, took her from the engine. After she had been carried into the hotel she was able to tell who she was, and when her father came, she turned and pointed to him saying, "that's my papa." The shock to Mrs. Bennett was somewhat lessened by the fact that she was prepared for something. She saw the horse with harness minus the cutter run past the house, and therefore knew that there had been an accident, but was not prepared for one so thrilling as that related by her husband when he came to summon her to her child's side.
