town of Bristol, died at the home of her son, Gooding Packard, at one
o'clock Saturday morning, aged 84 years. Mrs. Packard had suffered for
a number of years and since Christmas had been confined to her bed. Her

came with her son's family to this village to reside. She was a
daughter of Ephraim and Corinthia Spencer Gooding. Her mother was the
first white child born in the town. Her father came to Bristol from
Leighton, Mass., where the Gooding family originally settled upon
coming into this country. She was one of six children, of whom only one
is left, Miss Lucy Gooding, of Chapinville. Mrs. Packard had been a
remarkable strong, active woman and had filled the years with useful
service for her family and others and when the days came that she could
no longer serve, she was tenderly cared for by her son and his family.
Besides her son, Gooding Packard, she leaves another son, William S.
Packard, of Basco, Wis. The funeral services were held from the Packard
home on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. L. L. Taylor officiating.

Bristol Center, N. Y. - The death of George R. Packard, son
Mr. and Mrs. Ralph H. Packard, of this place, occurred at the home

since. He leaves his parents, two sisters and two brothers. The funeral

In our last week's issue reference was mad to the distressing and
fatal illness in the family of Mr. Harrison Wisner of Farmington, and
now we are called upon to chronicle another death resulting from the
same disease. Mrs. Margaret Padelford, wife of Capt. Harvey
Padelford, residing at Padelford station, was among those who went to
the assistance of the afflicted family before referred to, and a few
days subsequently was herself attacked with diphtheria. From the first
the disease assumed a malignant form, giving rise to the most serious
apprehensions, and, in fact, almost forbidding the hope of recovery.
She was taken sick on Thursday, as we are informed, and died about
eleven o'clock on Monday night. The deceased was deservedly esteemed as
one whose many Christian virtues and true womanly impulses endeared her
to a large circle of friends. Her death, so sudden and unexpected, will
be most sincerely deplored. To the community, and especially to her
husband, and the two surviving children, who are thus early deprived of
a mother's loving care and counsel, the loss is indeed irreparable. The
hour appointed for the funeral is 4 o'clock tomorrow, Thursday,

Died, on Wednesday, the 6 inst., at her home in William street, Mrs.
Shepard Page, wife of Dr. J. M. Page, in the 40th year of her
age. Her disease, (a professional account of which is given below,)
subjected her to a protracted season of severe suffering. For some
years past, she has occasionally been disabled from swallowing food,
for a few days at a time, and has suffered much pain and debility. From
these attacks she always confidently expected relief, and was not
disappointed. Since the last attack came upon her, she has confidently
affirmed her expectation that she should not recover from it; and in
that expectation she has been perfectly content, and marvelously
cheerful. She was not weary of life, was keenly alive to the pain of
separation from loved ones, and exceedingly sympathetic towards all who
would be bereaved by her death. Yet her faith in Christ was so strong
and settled, and her assurance that His will is felt, so fixed and
consistent, that she had not (so far as those with her could see) one
hour of despondency, or gloom, or unrest. "Her peace was like a

Death of Mrs. Ezekiel Page
Mrs. Lamira Page, wife of Ezekiel Page, an old and respected
resident of Geneva, died on Saturday, March 2d. Mrs. Page was
seventy-two years old on January 19, and for the greater part of her
life has lived in Geneva. Over fifty years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Ezekiel Page were married in Middlebury, Vermont. They lived
there a year, and then emigrated to what was then the far west,
settling in the town of Italy, Yates county. For about ten years
they resided there, and then moved to Geneva. For many years Mr.
Page followed the business of a wagon and carriage maker. After
the close of the Harrison and Tyler campaign, Mr.
Page occupied the "log cabin" built by the Whigs on the corner of
Castle and Milton streets, and there carried on his trade.
Sixteen years ago he and Mrs. Page removed to Clifton Springs, where he
worked at his business, until old age and failing health compelled him
to give up. One year ago Monday the aged couple returned to
Geneva, there to pass the remainder of their days on earth. Four
years ago last June Mr.
and Mrs. Page celebrated their golden wedding, all their children,
eight in number, being present. It is a remarkable circumstance
that the first death in this large family was that
of the mother. Mrs. Page left eight children, about twenty-five
grand-children and five or six great-grand-children. Her sons are
Edward A. Page, of Watkins, Frank D. Page, of Binghamton, Fitzroy Page,
Galveston, Texas, and John Page of Auburn. All are married and
have families. Her daughters are Mrs. B. W. Scott, Mrs. O. D.

Fitzroy, who could not reach Geneva in time. The funeral took place

large, and her floral offerings remarkably fine. The members of
the family desire to express their heartfelt thanks and sincere
appreciation of the many kindnesses shown them, by friends, and the
Christian sympathy and consolation tendered by Dr. Rankine and others.

Fatal Accident in Phelps - Mr. John Page, who for many years has
been trackmaster on the Phelps section of the New York Central
Railroad, was run over and instantly killed - body actually severed in
twain - by a freight train on Wednesday morning last. The
particulars of this terrible accident are narrated as follows by
the Rochester Union: For some time past Mr. Page has been
seriously affected with rheumatism, which rendered him quite lame.
By aid of a crutch, however, he was able to be around and attend
to his duties. About eight o'clock (Wednesday) morning
he was standing on the track watching the passenger train coming from
the East, and did not perceive a work train approaching from the
opposite direction until it was almost upon him. Under the
excitement of the moment, in attempting to jump hastily to one side,
his crutch slipped from his grasp and he fell across the rail.
entire train passed over his body killing him instantly. In fact
it is stated that the body was literally cut in two. Mr. Page was one
of the oldest employees on the Auburn branch of the N. Y. C. & H.
R. R., having been in the employ of the company since the opening of
Auburn road in 1840, and nearly the whole time as section boss, his
appointment on the road coming from Superintendent Robert Higham.
the time of his death he was 65 years of age. Mr. Page was a worthy
Freemason, a member of Sincerity Lodge Phelps, and of Geneva
Commandery, K. T. The latter attended his funeral services in a body
today and conducted ceremonies in accordance with its impressive
P. S. Coroner Weyburn
of Geneva held an inquest on the case yesterday, and the evidence
produced before him varies somewhat from that
given above. It seems that a son had just brought Mr. Page to the
depot, leaving him at the freight house and returned home. A few
moments later he was seen at the upper end
of the freight house standing near or upon the . track. About
this time a work train approached from the west intending to pass
eastward to Oaks' Corners without stopping. It is surmised that Mr.
Page was seized with dizziness or faintness to which he was
occasionally subject, and fell directly across the rail. The
engineer saw him in that condition and instantly reversed his engine,
late to check its forward momentum, and the next instant all was over
with the unfortunate victim.

confectionery and toy store at No. 7 Seneca street in about the year
1834, subsequently connecting with it the manufacture of homeopathic
globules, also an external remedy for injuries and disease which made
his name famous throughout the land; and the combined business proved a
source of profitable income. In his personal character, Mr. Page was
most deservedly and highly esteemed. He was upright and honorable in
all dealings with his fellow men, and genial and companionable in his
intercourse with all. He rather shunned than courted official honors,
nevertheless his fellow citizens repeatedly called on him to serve them
in the local government of our village. When a candidate he was never
defeated. He was a sterling Democrat at all times, and it deeply
grieved him that he was unable by reason of infirmity to go to the
polls in 1884 and deposit his ballot for Cleveland & Hendricks. He
was a devout though unpretending member of the Presbyterian church, and
most faithful in his attendance upon its services, as also a cheerful
and liberal contributor to its support, as to all beneficent objects
presented to him.
Mr. Page was thrice married, losing his first wife and the mother of
all his children in 1875; the second died in 1878; the third and
surviving wife, whom he married in 1879, has been most affectionate and
unwearied in her care of him through all the long years of his illness.
The three surviving children, J. A., Clarence and Mrs. Wood, though all
residing at a distance, were present to pay the last sad tribute of
affection to one of the best of parents. The funeral was held last
Tuesday afternoon with impressive services both at the house and First
Church. Rev. Mr. Stevenson officiated. The Misses Bennett sweetly
rendered two duets. The bearers were Messrs. J. N. Slocum, J. S. Lewis,
E. A. Bronson, S. E. Smith, E. Harris and S. H. Parker. A beautiful
floral emblem in form of an open book, bearing the inscription lettered
with purple immoralities, "He Giveth His Beloved Sleep," adorned the
somber casket. The interment was made in Washington Street Cemetery
between the graves of his two deceased wives.

of Mrs. Maggie Page, wife of our Supervisor, L. A. Page, and
daughter of Mr. John H. Benham of Hopewell. She had been sick only ten

until death claimed her as his own. She leaves an infant daughter and
six other children motherless. The last sad rites were performed on

The funeral of Mrs. Margaret A. Page took place this
afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from her late home. Rev. David H. Craver,
pastor of the North Presbyterian church officiated. Interment was in
the family plot in Glenwood cemetery.
Mrs. Page, who was 89 years old, was one of the oldest residents of
this city and had lived here all her life. She was the daughter of
William and Margaret Sayre Ansley. In 1792 her father, with nothing but
the clothes he wore and an axe on his shoulder, walked from Lackawanna
County, Pa., and settled in Ontario County five miles southwest of
Geneva on the Pre-emption road. Geneva at that time contained but one
frame and some half dozen log houses. The old homestead where she was
born was built in 1794 and is still standing in good condition.
September 7, 1841, she married Charles A. Page whom she survived
nineteen years. She had been a member of the North Presbyterian church
for over thirty years.

Institute of that city.
His career as a successful business man dated
from the time when he was but 16 years old when he established a weekly rural
paper which proved to be a successful business venture and which he later sold
to the Rochester "Post-Express." Mr. Page at that time went to the
"Post-Express" as circulation manager.
Previous to his connection with
the Geneva Cutlery Corporation he was with the H. O. Company, of Buffalo, N. Y.,
E. Kirstein & Sons Optical House, of Rochester and the Standard Optical
Company of Geneva.
On February 1st, 1916, he became affiliated with the

Mr. Austin Palmer, a farmer aged about 50 years and residing a
short distance north of this village, died suddenly on Wednesday
evening last. His health had been poor for several years past,
having been afflicted with a disease of the stomach, and for the past
three or four months his condition had been much worse than usual so as

with pains in the stomach and through his breast -- with great
difficulty of breathing and constant sense of suffocation. He was
conscious to the last and in spite of his agonies of pain had his
children called and embraced them. He died at
about one o'clock a.m., suffering to the last moment, struggling and
gasping for breath.
The post mortem examination revealed Hypertrophy of the heart
and within the left ventricle a fibrinous clot was found which was the

From Ontario County Journal 26 August 1892
Last Saturday night in Hopewell Center, William Palmer committed
by taking a dose of laudanum. The circumstances of the case as
nearly as investigation reveals them, are as follows: Palmer had been
married 24 years to a Mary Garrett, a sister of John Garrett, living on
lower Main Street in this village. The family of the deceased have all
been of a despondent disposition, and the characteristic was possessed
in a marked degree by the suicide. All the trifling troubles naturally
incident to a family life came with crushing force to him and were
greatly exaggerated. He brooded over them, and in many instances
meditated suicide. His brother and father took their own lives, and
this doubtless added its influence to bring about the calamity. About
three weeks ago trouble arose, and indications of insanity were
noticed. As a result of his derangement, Palmer began to drink. This
only accented the trouble, and suddenly he left the place. It is
believed that he went to the west. Last Friday night he came to
Canandaigua on the evening train from the west, and went to the home of
his brother-in-law, John Garrett, on Main street. There he remained
over night and kept to his bed till late in the morning. His manner was
strange, and despondency was plainly marked. During the afternoon of
Saturday, a neighbor of Palmer, living in Hopewell, Charles Welch by
name, came to this village and took Palmer back with him to his home.
In the meantime Palmer borrowed a dollar from Kear, the blacksmith, and
with it had purchased some laudanum. On reaching Hopewell, he entered a
barn and took the poison which he had in a bottle. Shortly afterward,
he told what he had done and efforts were made to save his life, but
they were fruitless. Saturday night he died. Palmer was a man aged
about 52 years, an Englishman by birth, and quite good looking.
Excepting the apparently hereditary trait which brought about his
unhappy death, his character was kind and good. He was at most times an
industrious, careful farmer, and kept his farm in good condition. It
was only when touches of the mental derangement caused him to take to
drink that things went wrong. Palmer was buried Tuesday morning at 11
o'clock. He leaves a wife but no children.
