Death of Andrew Scoon -
This name of our friend and brother in Christ brings up before us an erect and dignified form, with a countenance ever genial and beaming with a love and good will to his fellowmen; an upright man -- very quiet and yet thoughtful, and true to his convictions of duty.  He was a kind neighbor and a good citizen.  He had been a follower of Christ for fifty years, and was most exemplary in all his conduct; was always in his place on the sabbath, and his home was a home of prayer. Almost his last act was that of family worship, and his Bible was by his side when he was called home.

Mr. Scoon was born in Scotland Dec 13th, 1808, and removed to Geneva in May, 1840.  For 30 years he has been gathering friends around him, seldom losing except by death.  Last Friday evening, March 11th, he was suddenly called to his eternal rest. Knowing that his heart was diseased, he had been expecting the summons, and yet up to the moment of death he had appeared in his usual health.  He leaves his dear companion of more than 40 years in feeble health.  The funeral services were held at the Reformed Church, of which he was a member, on Monday afternoon; and very seldom has a larger audience assembled on such an occasion in Geneva.

From the sympathy thus expressed there is no occasion to commend the widow and the son to the love of those who knew the husband and father but to love him.  They will ever have a place in our thoughts and prayers.

Mrs. Arabella Scoon,

K. Scoon, Mrs. Thomas Densmore, Mrs. D. H. Patty, and one unmarried daughter, Miss Belle, who resided with her mother.  We have known the family well for more than forty years, when they drove into town every Sunday morning to attend service is the good old Scotch Church, and of that congregation there are very few survivors - we can really name but three in the city now, the Misses Johnston and Mrs. E. B. Richardson, and Geo. O. Rippey and wife of Halls. Their old pastor, Rev. J. L. Robertson, happened to be in the city on the day of Mrs. Scoon's death.

Geneva -
The Rev. Charles Kelsey Scoon, 84, died unexpectedly yesterday in his home. For the past two weeks he had been treated by a physician and had been confined to the home. The Rev. Mr. Scoon was born on Jan. 23, 1855, in the Canandaigua Road. He graduated from Hobart College, class of 1876. After study of one year at Hartford Theological Seminary, and three years at Auburn seminary, he entered the Presbyterian ministry and his first Parish was at McGraw. His health forced him to abandon this work after one year. Returning to Geneva, Scoon went into the nursery business and planted the first commercial cherry orchard known. He had been a ruling elder in North Presbyterian church for many years and served also as clerk of the section. He organized a class for men which bore his name, retiring as an active member when he was 70 years old. He was one of the pioneers in the development of the Geneva YMCA and took an active part in civic affairs.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Caroline Maxwell Scoon; two sons, Robert M., Princeton, N. J., and Thompson M. Scoon, Geneva; a daughter, Miss Carolyn Scoon, New York City; a sister, Mrs. H. A. Patty, San Diego, Calif., and two grandsons. Funeral services will be held privately at 2 p.m. tomorrow in the home.

Death of Wm. Scoon -
We record with supreme sorrow the death of another esteemed friend and patron.  Wm. Scoon passed away Saturday night last, at his farm residence in Seneca after long suffering, in the 71st year of his age.  The deceased was a native of this town, oldest son of the late John Scoon, and born on the farm now owned and occupied by Mrs. Snell.  His whole life was that of an exemplary Christian, void of  offense toward God and man, doing his whole duty cheerfully as a good citizen, a kind neighbor and every helpful friend.  The deceased from early manhood was a member and regular attendant of the Associate Reformed Church, delighting in its simple service of prayer and praise.  When as a denomination it became merged with the Presbyterians he transferred his allegiance to the latter and was regular and devout in worship at the First Church.

Mr. Scoon's illness originated from a severe attack of the grippe, and although he partially recovered from it direful effects, he was never restored to good health.  Consumption of the lungs finally ensued, and from that moment he was marked for early dissolution.  An only son is the Rev. Chas. K. Scoon, an ordained minister of the Presbyterian Church.  An only and younger brother, James Scoon, died within the present year.

Mr. Scott had been confined to his home for two weeks with illness, and he stepped out on the porch to see his comrades pass by. He was seated in a chair and returned their salute. Suddenly his head was seen to drop back, and his two daughters springing to his assistance very soon saw that he was dead. He was aged 77 years. He was a member of the 126th regiment and served honorably during the war, but the hardships left him an invalid. The death of a daughter a few months ago was a great strain upon his waning strength.

widow of the late John Scott of this village, died on Sunday, Nov. 17th, 1872, aged 69 years. Mother Scott was sadly affected in this life. Her husband was killed by the cars some years ago. Of a family of eight children, only one survives her, Mrs. Virgil Barber. Five of her children died of consumption. For many years she was partially insane but there was much method in her insanity. She professed a strong faith in Christ and although erratic in many things we believe she was truly pious. As an emblem of her purity of heart, she believed she believed she must dress in white which she did at all seasons of the year. The conflicts of life with her are ended, and she has gone to the land where there is no sorrow.
