From Geneva Gazette 8 January 1869

SUDDEN DEATH - Our citizens were unsettled on Sunday morning last by tidings of the death of Mr. John Ide. The report proved, alas, too true.  Only the day previous he was attending to his usual vocation as a blacksmith, seemingly in as good health as usual.  At about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, while shoveling snow from in front of his shop, he was stricken down in a apoplectic fit, and conveyed home in an unstable condition.  He did not regain consciousness or speech, and died about 4
o'clock the following morning.

Mr. Ide had been a resident and active business man among us for more than forty years. However rough the exterior, within there was a good true heart, ever ready to sympathize with the distressed, and to beat with honest indignation over oppression and wrong of every name and nature. He had long been a sufferer from rheumatic affliction, but it was hardly conceived that the Destroyer would at length strike him in the fearfully sudden form of apoplexy. The sad event will be received with profound sorrow among a wide circle of acquaintances. The funeral of Mr. Ide took place from his residence on Water street on Wednesday afternoon last, attended by the largest concourse of sorrowing friends that has been seen in our village on any similar occasion for many years.

From Ontario County Journal 6 March 1874

Canadice -
The community was shocked yesterday morning by the news of the sudden death of one of our old citizens, Mr. Hiram Ingraham.  He went alone into the woods on Saturday to draw logs to the shingle mill of the Branch Brothers.  He was unable to give an intelligent account of what happened, if indeed he knew.  Whether he burst a blood vessel, or received a blow from the lever he was using to load his log, or both, he was unable to say.  His distress was such that he thought he would die on the spot, though he had sufficient command of himself to hitch his team.  After a time he succeeded in driving home, a distance of half or three quarters of a mile.  Dr. Gray, of Springwater, was called at once; but he was beyond mortal help.  He was buried today after a very appropriate address by Elder S. M. Dayton.  Mr. Ingraham was a very hard-working and successful farmer. If the man who makes two blades of grass grow where but one grew before is a benefactor of his race, he was entitled to that distinction.



From Ontario County Chronicle 12 June 1901

From Ontario County Journal 24 January 1890

Canadice, N. Y. -
Little more than a year ago, Frank H. Ingraham was united in marriage to Miss Millie McNair. Hardly had the young couple been congratulated when Mrs. Ingraham was seized with lung trouble, and though able physicians did all in their power, and despite the care of a loving husband, the dread disease gradually fastened its hold and last Friday she calmly and peacefully fell asleep in Jesus., being a little less than twenty-one years old. The deceased had lived in town for some time previous to her marriage and was a favorite with all her acquaintances. Her quiet, pleasant way and strong christian character gave proof that she "had been with Jesus and learned of Him." Though lingering on a bed of disease, she did not murmur but patiently waited the summons, "come up higher." The funeral service was held from the church on Sunday, Rev. E. J. Cook speaking from Jeremiah, 15th, 9th, the 3d clause. The bereaved husband has the sympathy of all sympathetic hearts in this dark hour of affliction. May they whom she loved so well look for strength from the same source, knowing that He is mighty to save.
