The cause of the sudden and sad death of Mrs. Mary A. Buchan, as
at the inquest held here by Coroner Newman, was paralysis of
the heart. Her age was nearly 56 years. She had been visiting her
father and mother at Honeoye Falls, and took the train there for this
village, to return to her home in Hopewell, at 12:10 on Thursday of
last week. She then seemed to be in good health, although she
complained to a lady sitting in the seat with her of having experienced
severe pains in the head the night before. After the train passed West
Bloomfield, a messenger went into the baggage car and informed the
conductor that a lady was very sick in the coach. He went in and found
Mrs. B. in an alarming condition, and hurried the speed of the train
to reach Miller's Corners. Upon reaching there a physician was speedily
sent for, but she expired before he arrived -- death having ensued in
forty minutes from the time she stepped upon the train. Her son was
awaiting her arrival at the depot here, and when, instead of the living
his mother, he saw her lifeless remains, lying prostrate before him, he
was overcome with anguish - such sorrow as can come to but few in a
lifetime. The funeral services were held at the residence of her
husband, Mr. William Buchan, two miles east of Hopewell Center, on
Saturday last, and an appropriate and feeling discourse was given by
Rev. Mr. Blain, of Hopewell Center.

From Canandaigua Chronicle 4 April 1906
Shortsville, N. Y. - Myron M. Buck, one of the most
successful of Shortsville's boys, died at his home in Clifton Springs
on Friday morning, after a long and painful illness, at the age of 63
years. He was born in Shortsville in 1833, being a son of the late
Addison and Sabrina Short Buck, and a grandson of Theophilus Short, the
founder of Shortsville. His early life was passed in his birthplace on
a farm now known as the Booth farm in Canandaigua street, which was
then the property of Theophilus Short. The house in which Mr. Buck was
born still stands, it now being the Booth tenant house, though a
portion of it was moved many years ago to the Sharon Booth farm, west
of this village. When thirteen years of age he went to Canada and made
his home with his brother, A. Cuyler Buck, then a resident of
Brantford, Canada. There he learned the trade of the tinsmith and
remained until he was twenty-three, when he went to Chicago, and about
six years later settled in St. Louis. In that city he began the
manufacturing of lanterns, at first on a very small scale in a small
one-story building which is still standing, and of which he was always
very proud. This small beginning developed into one of the largest
concerns of the United States, manufacturing all kinds of railroad
supplies. Mr. Buck invented a head light that was used by many western
roads. For many years past Mr. Buck has spent the summers in his
Clifton Springs residence and the winters in his St. Louis home, and
always retained a deep interest in Shortsville and vicinity and several
years ago, he gave to this village the M. M. Buck Free Library.
His first wife was Miss Clara Whitney, daughter of Captain Whitney of
Hopewell, who died leaving a young daughter; and about 27 years ago he
married Miss Velma Sawyer of Orleans, who survives him. He is also
survived by a grandson, Myron Horton. Mr. O. C. Buck of Grove street is
his nephew. The funeral was held from his late home in Clifton Springs
at two o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. H. L.
Dorchester, pastor of the Linwood Avenue Methodist Episcopal church,
St. Louis, of which he was a prominent member and an elder. Interment
was in Brookside Cemetery, Shortsville.

Honeoye, N. Y. - On Christmas day at her home in this village,
occurred the death of Mrs. Melvina Buckelew after a long,
painful illness. She had been in poor health for the past 20 years, but
about two months ago, she suffered an apoplectic stroke and since that
time her suffering has been intense, and her death was hourly expected.
During this time she had, with the assistance of a nurse, been tenderly
cared for by her only sister, with whom she lived. Melvina Kingsbury
Buckelew was born in the town of Bristol, 61 years ago. She was the
daughter of Hampton and Lynda Totman Kingsbury, and with the exception
of the past eight years residence at Honeoye, had lived her life in
that town. At the age of 18 years, she was married to Spafford
Buckelew, whose death occurred four years ago. To them, four children
were born, all of whom died in infancy. She is survived by two
brothers, Sherman Kingsbury of Canandaigua; and Addison Kingsbury of
Jersey City, N. J., and one sister, Mrs. Lucretia Briggs, of this
village. The funeral was held from her late home, Rev. Dr. A. C. Dill
officiating. The casket was covered with flowers. Beautiful music was
rendered by Ira N. Deyo and Mrs. Helen M. Lawrence, with Prof. F. B.
Short, organist. The interment was in Woodlawn.

Monday afternoon, the Rev. F. E. Arnold assisted by

Phillips officiated as pall bearers.
The following was handed us by the pastor: "The deceased was born
in Monmouth Co. N. J., Dec. 1st, 1793. In 1832 he removed thence
to this town and settled with his family. Ten or twelve years
later he united with the Gorham and Middlesex Baptist church, of which
he was a member at his death. Through the infirmities of age and
especially the almost entire loss of hearing, he has to a great extent
been deprived of the privilege of attending public worship." As
the pastor truly remarked, "he had lived a spotless and blameless
life." An aged widow and five sons survive him.

Mr. Abraham Buckholder died at his residence in the town of
Seneca, near Flint Creek, on Monday, May 24th in the 83d year of his
age. During the nine months of his illness, resulting from a shock of
paralysis, all that an affectionate consort and the most devoted filial
care and attention of sons and daughters, and two of the most skillful
physicians in Ontario, Doctors Potter and Balh, could do to minister
relief, was most assiduously tendered. Mr. Buckholder emigrated from
Pennsylvania near the close of the last century, and may therefore be
styled one of the most enterprising of the early pioneers of Western
New York, and has reared a very respectable family, who have by
laudable industry become opulent and wealthy. The writer of this has
been intimately acquainted with Mr. B. over half a century, and he can
truly say the chain of friendship has ever been kept bright between
them. The funeral ceremonies were attended by a very large concourse of
friends and relatives, at the Methodist Episcopal Church; and the
sermon by the Rev. Mr. Coats was most excellent and very appropriate.

From Geneva Daily Times 22 November 1909
The body of Michael Buckley of West street, who
disappeared from home last Thursday, was found in Seneca lake at a
point near the plant of the Herendeen Manufacturing Company yesterday
morning. The search for Mr. Buckley which was begun when he failed to
return home Thursday night was continued on Friday and Saturday and
when no trace of him could be found, it was decided to drag the harbor.
The work was begun yesterday under the direction of Coroner Flint and
had proceeded to a point a hundred yards or so south of Castle street
when the body was discovered. There were no marks upon it and death
evidently had been accidental. A son of Mr. Buckley who was watching
the work of dragging from the towpath, collapsed when the body was
discovered and it was nearly an hour before he recovered. As soon as
the body was removed from the water it was taken to the undertaking
rooms of Devaney and Fletcher and late yesterday the remains were
removed to the Buckley home at 29 West street.
The last seen of Mr. Buckley alive was on Thursday evening when he was
seen walking down Exchange street by Officer McNerney. It is said that
Mr. Buckley was temperate in his habits and when seen by Officer
McNerney there was nothing unusual either in his appearance or actions
so that it was only after Mr. Buckley was reported missing that the
officer recalled seeing him at all. While Coroner Flint will hold an
inquest this afternoon to determine the facts in the case, the
supposition is that Mr. Buckley became bewildered and walked to the
lake front and then accidentally walked off the dock late at night.
Some burdock burs found in his clothing would indicate that he walked
down one of the alley ways leading from Exchange street. No money or
papers were found upon the body. Mr. Buckley's watch had, however,
stopped at 4:20 o'clock.
He is survived by his wife, four daughters, Mrs. John S. Harding, Mrs.
Charles Caton and Catherine and Mary; three sons, Thomas, Joseph, and
William Buckley; three brothers, Jeremiah, Daniel and Maurice Buckley,
and two sisters, Mrs. John Diviney, of this city, and Mrs. E. Maney of

the sudden and mysterious death of one Peter Buckley
of that town, who lived alone on Michigan st. His house was

in maudlin carelessness set fire to the house and perished by
suffocation. The coroner is investigating the affair.

away at 6 o'clock Monday morning. For nearly two years Mrs. Buell had

she had helped to build will be indeed sadly missed as it will be in
