"Sta" OBITUARIES



From Geneva Gazette 26 August 1859

Died at Fire Island in the Bay of Long Island, where he had gone for the benefit of his health, on the morning of the 16th inst., John Staats, M. D., in the 64th year of his age. Dr. Staats was a resident of this village, Geneva, since 1832, having removed from Utica here. He was born in Sharon, Schoharie County, N. Y. His grandfather was one of the first settlers in that county, having emigrated from Holland at a very early day. His father and mother, Peter and Nancy Staats, with their only child, the subject of this notice, remained in Sharon until 1823. He united with the Protestant Reformed Dutch Church in that year, and has ever since been a devout and zealous Christian, ever defending Christianity when occasion required, either by word or writing. His parents were members of the same church. The three have gone to their reward in Heaven there to "sing praises unto the Lamb for ever and ever, whose blood cleanseth from all sin." They sleep in our village cemetery the sleep that knows no waking til the resurrection morn.

Mrs. J. Geo. Stacey
died at the family residence on South Main street last Friday evening, after an illness of three weeks. About a year ago, Mrs. Stacey had a very severe fall from which she never fully recovered, and it is thought that this was the indirect cause of her death.

On the 11th of April, 1862, she married J. Geo. Stacey, of this village. From that time till the date of her death, Geneva has been her home, including a residence of a few years on the old Stacey farm situated on the east side of Seneca Lake. Seven children were born to them, one of whom died in infancy, and a daughter, Charlotte, died in September, 1881. Beside the husband, five children are left to mourn the loss of a devoted wife and most loving mother, J. Geo. Stacey, Annie, Susan, Lewis and Theresa. In the death of Mrs. Stacey, the community and town at large suffers a great loss. Beloved by all who knew her, both rich and poor. A woman of strong character and beautiful disposition, an earnest worker in the Parish of Trinity Church. One who was always ready to lend her aid and open her purse to some deserving object.

Another Aged Citizen Passed Away -
Last Sunday, one of the brightest and most beautiful days of this unusually bright, balmy and life-reviving month, Benjamin F. Stagg, an aged and honored citizen, passed away.  His death could scarcely be realized as an actual occurrence, so recently had he been seen going in and out among us daily.  Deceased was a son of the late Thomas Stagg, born in New York city July 10th, 1808.  He received a thoro' mercantile education, and became a most accurate and reliable accountant.  He moved to Geneva in June, 1837, and associated himself with his brother, Howard, in the grocery business, their store being located on Main street, on the site now occupied by the residence of Mr. John Lay. An infirmity of hearing obliged him to abandon mercantile business, when his accomplishments as a book-keeper found him ready and lucrative employment.  For twenty-eight years, he thus served the Steamboat Company under its several organizations, beginning with the late John R. Johnston & Co.  Subsequently he was thus employed by the Geneva Gas Light Company and others.

He was a sincere, earnest, though undemonstrative Christian.  Difficulty of hearing deprived him of the benefit of Church services, but in the privacy of his home, he held daily and sweet communion with his God through the medium of His Holy Word.  He was a tender, loving husband and father; and in the memory of his pure and blameless life he has left a precious legacy to mourning kindred.  His wife and two children survive him.  The first with one daughter in Geneva; the other daughter is the wife of Mr. Henry Gallaher of Rochester.  He also leaves three brothers - one residing in New York city, one in this village, and one in Elmira.

The funeral took place from his residence last Wednesday, Rev. Dr. Rankine of St. Peter's officiating.  The choir of that church sang the beautiful hymn, "Rock of Ages."  Many sympathizing and sorrowing friends were present.  The remains were interred in the Washington St. Cemetery.

Sad Accident with Firearms -
We are called upon this week to record one of those terrible accidents which occasionally happen by the handling of firearms by persons of immature years.  Last Monday, Franklin P., youngest son of Mr. Bryan Stainton of this village, with two other boys, one a son of B. W. Keys and a son of D. W. Baird, went to the outlet of the lake to shoot snipe, and while out young Stainton was shot, the charge entering his throat and coming out at the back of the neck, killing him instantly.  At the time the accident occurred, young Stainton was standing on the pier and the boys thought he was loading one of the barrels of the gun.  He stood so near the edge of the pier that he fell in the water.  The other boys were very much frightened, and ran to the old toll-gate before telling of the accident.  The body was discovered by a young man who happened to pass along the pier about fifteen minutes after the accident occurred.  Frank was about 12 years of age, and the other lads we understand were under ten.  It is a terrible affliction to the parents, and more so from his being the youngest and only child that was living at home.



From Geneva Gazette April 14 1893

OBITUARY - Death of Another Veteran - Harry L. Stainton
died at his office on Lake street Tuesday night last (11th inst.) at a quarter to 12 o'clock, after an illness which had confined him to his room and bed only three days, although he had been a sufferer for several months of a disease of the internal organs.  He called on Dr. DeLaney for treatment last Saturday, who attended him faithfully thereafter until the last.  Erysipelas finally set in adding to the other complications, and the poor patient was too debilitated to long withstand this last attack.  His wife, daughter and sister faithfully ministered to him in his last hours, and would have been glad to have him at either of their homes if they had been informed of his dangerous illness in time for removal.  His friend Clement Ostrander was also most assiduous and sympathetic in caring for him throughout his last illness.

Deceased was the last surviving son of the late Levi Stainton, who died less than two years ago.  Harry was born in May, 1837, and a suitable age learned the trade of carriage maker, (body work) in the shops of B. W. Keyes, at which he became quite an expert.  When the civil war broke out he enlisted as a private in the second company organized in Geneva, raised by the ill-fated Capt. Baird who lost his life in the service.  This company was incorporated in the 38th N. Y. Vols., commanded by Col. J. Hobart Haws and brigaded under the fighting Gen. Phil. Kearney.  It received its baptism of fire at the first battle of Bull Run, an engagement so disastrous to the Union forces.  In this battle Harry Stainton was severely wounded in his right hand, shattering the knuckle bones.  This injury incapacitated for him further service, and after leaving hospital he received an honorable discharge.  He was never able to resume work at his trade.

During the administration of Gov. Hill he was appointed collector of canal statistics at Geneva, which office he held for four or five years, when he was compelled to retire by the present Superintendent of Public Works.  The deceased however continued until his death to do all the work of the office, dividing its salary with his successor.

Mr. Stainton leaves a wife and one daughter, the latter also a widow.  They are comfortably provided for in the property he made over to them during his lifetime.  The only survivor of his father's family is Mrs. S. H. Parker, between whom, especially since both were orphaned, existed the warmest brotherly and sisterly affection.  

Harry Stainton possessed a most generous and sympathetic nature, a genial temperament that endeared him to all acquaintances. Beneath a rough exterior beat a true and noble heart.  Naught of malice toward any fellow-man ever entered his heart.  He may have had faults -- who has them not? -- but he showed none to the injury of person or feelings of anyone. A lifelong acquaintance and close relationship to the deceased enables the writer to indite this truthful tribute to his memory.

The funeral is to be held this afternoon at his late home on Castle street, (the spot on which he was born).  Rev. Dr. Rankine officiating.  Interment in the family plot at Glenwood.

From Ontario County Journal 26 October 1888

Died, at Reed's Corners on the afternoon of October 22d, John Stall, aged 80 years, one month and 14 days. John Stall was born at Johnstown, N. Y., September 8, 1808. In July, 1834, he was married to Miss Eleanor Bennett of Cheshire. Mr. Stall has resided in this county ever since a young man. He came to Reed's Corners about 37 years ago, where he has lived in the same house in which he died. He pursued prior to that time agricultural pursuits, and was at one or two different times a well-to-do farmer. Owing to his good will towards others he was imposed upon by those he aided in a financial way, and by treachery or deceit, thereby distressed himself. This last strain came upon him when he owned what is now the Geo. W. Cole farm. He had ten children, six of whom are now living: Norman P., of Battle Creek, Mich.; J. Henry of Lyons, N. Y. ; James A., of Newark, N. Y.; Mrs. Frank M. Rodman of Stanley, N. Y.; Emery A. and Mrs. Emma Cole, of Reed's Corners. Mr. Stall was for many years a member of the Methodist church. He has been the sexton of the cemetery in this place for many years, and has buried in the ground more than two hundred persons. He was identified politically with the Democratic party until 1872, when he changed his political views and has since voted with the Republican party. Mr. Stall has been a hard working and industrious man all his life, save the last five years, and now, at the ripe age of 80 years, life's fitful fever is ended.

Lester M. Stall
died at his home, No. 20 Tillman street, last Saturday morning, March 17, aged 68 years. He had been road master of the New York Central here for many years, and as honest a man as ever breathed. He was a large, strong man, one of those whom pneumonia makes short work of when it takes firm hold, as in his case. He was an active member of the A. O. U. W., and has paid into its treasury many hundreds of dollars, and we hope the Order's affairs will be so adjusted that the family will get the benefit.

Capt. Salem Standish
died at the residence of his father-in-law, Wm. Gulick, Esq., yesterday afternoon, after many years of intense but patient suffering -- being diseased in nearly all his vital organs. Capt. Standish formerly resided at Canandaigua, and for several seasons commanded one of the steamboats plying on Canandaigua Lake, in which capacity he formed an extensive and universally to himself favorable acquaintance, everybody learning to like him from his uniform amiability and courtesy. A few years since he removed to Seneca Falls and conducted a small hotel, which venture would have proved successful had not failing health impaired his ability to give it his intelligent and popular oversight. Leaving this situation a few months ago, his last days were soothed and comforted by the assiduous and affectionate attentions of his devoted wife and her sympathizing parents. The end came not unexpectedly, but nonetheless sorrowfully to all those to whom he was endeared by the ties of relationship and friendship. The funeral of Capt. Standish will take place tomorrow at 10 a.m. at the residence of Mr. Gulick, No. 30 Genesee street, and the interment made in Glenwood Cemetery.

In Seneca, on Monday evening last, Deacon Seth Stanley, aged 72.  Mr. Stanley was much esteemed as a christian and as a useful citizen.  He emigrated from Connecticut to this country nearly thirty years ago, and has enjoyed an almost uninterrupted state of health throughout a life which has exceeded three score and ten; but his sudden death is calculated to impress upon all, the solemn truth, that "in the midst of life we are in death."  He was engaged with his neighbors at a school district meeting, acting as clerk; and while in the act of entering his own re-election, he fell from his chair and expired.  Repos.



From Ontario Repository and Messenger 30 August 1876

Hon. Seth Stanley,
Member of Assembly from the First district of this county, died at his residence at Stanley, in the town of Seneca, last Friday, aged 45 years. He had been ill for several months from disease resulting from injuries received while engaged in railroading. His funeral took place on Sunday afternoon, and was very largely attended. About 80 citizens of this village went in a special train. Being an Odd Fellow, he was buried with the honors of the Order, about 150 of whom were in attendance. An immense procession, in which were 337 carriages, followed the remains to the grave. Mr. Stanley was a Democrat and a man of sterling worth. He was born in the village of Stanley, Sept. 3d, 1831. His grandfather was one of the first settlers of that place, emigrating from Connecticut in 1794. Seth received a good common school education, and at the age of thirteen entered the printing office of the Geneva Courier as an apprentice. He afterwards worked at his trade in the offices of the Syracuse Journal and other newspapers. He was several times Town Collector of Seneca, even when it was a Republican town, and was elected Supervisor in 1874, though he was always a Democrat. He had been engaged since 1864 in the lumber, coal and produce business. Last Fall he was elected Member of Assembly over Volney Edgerton, (Rep.), by a majority of 399.

From Phelps Citizen 6 April 1899

James Stanton,
a well-known resident of this village, died last Thursday afternoon at his home on Mary street, in his 79th year. His death was due to a combination of diseases, the principal one being heart trouble. Mr. Stanton was a veteran of the War of the Rebellion, enlisting in 1861 in Company K, 98th Volunteer Infantry. Company K was recruited in Phelps and Mr. Stanton and his son, John, were members of this company for over three years. At the battle of Drury's Bluff, Mr. Stanton was severely wounded, a ball piercing his right lung and passing out of his body at the back. He came home at the close of the war showing the effects of these years of exposure and hardship in camp and field. The result of this service became more apparent in his declining years and no doubt had a material tendency in hastening the end.

The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the Methodist church, Rev. S. F. Beardslee officiating. The members of Gen. John B. Murray Post, G. A. R., of which the deceased had been an honored member, attended in a body. The remains were placed at rest in the family burial plot in the Phelps cemetery, the services at the grave being conducted in accordance with the Grand Army ritual.

From Geneva Gazette 20 May 1881

Our neighboring town of Phelps seems to be the scene of all or nearly all the tragedies in real life enacted in this county. Several fatal affrays occurring in that town within the past few years must remain fresh in the public mind. Another is added to the catalogue, of which many verbal and printed versions have doubtlessly come to the eyes and ears of our readers. The following from the Phelps Citizen of yesterday is probably a correct account of the affair:

A few weeks since Darwin Starkweather, having lived a reformed life for several years, returned to his intemperate habits. He became abusive to and neglectful of his family, and scarcely a day closed that did not find him in a state of beastly intoxication. To such a pass had things come, that the family, which consisted of a wife and son about twenty years of age, were almost driven to despair. Many sacrifices had the son made and many hard-earned dollars had he spent, but seemingly for no purpose. Last Thursday evening the father left his home, a mile east of this village, to go on business to another part of town, and not returning, his son, Will, came to this village in search of him. Finding his father rather the worse for drink, the son got him in the wagon and started for home. Darwin was able to assist in taking care of the horse, and then went into the house. Mrs. Starkweather came to the barn. Finding a pail of cider, she poured it upon the ground, and with her son followed the drunken husband and father toward the house. In order that the unfortunate man in his weakness might not be able to get out again on such expeditions, Will proceeded to remove the wagons, which were his personal property, out of his father's reach, by taking them to Mr. Carey's barn. An old buggy, however, he despatched with an axe.

Going to the house, the son found his father abusive and threatening as he usually showed an ugly disposition when drunk. The dispute continued for a little time, and about nine o'clock when the unfortunate man was last seen alive, he was standing inside the door, facing his son, who was in the room holding a chair above his head, it is claimed in self-defense. In an instant the chair came down upon the head of Darwin Starkweather, and he pitched forward upon the floor, falling upon his face. In that position, he was left, the son going to Mr. Carey's where he worked and the mother going into a neighbor's house, both supposing that he was uninjured and was only in a drunken stupor, in which they had so often seen him. Returning to him, less than an hour afterward, it was found that the man was dead, and help was summoned. The coroner, Dr. J. Q. Howe, was called, who took the body in charge, and impanneled a jury. A post-mortem examination was made by Drs. Vanderhoof and Mudge, which disclosed the fact that only a slight abrasure of the skin was upon the face, that the skull or brain had sustained no injury, there being no evidence of a concussion or an effusion of blood about that organ, and that the heart and lungs were in a healthy condition, but that the body seemed saturated with cider. The testimony before the coroner's jury was taken in the afternoon, and several witnesses sworn substantiating the statements above made. The doctors gave evidence that death could not have resulted from the blow. Having taken considerable testimony, the jury adjourned to meet Saturday, the 21st inst.

The case is a peculiar one. Everything goes to show that the blow upon the head was not the cause, but it was the occasion of Darwin Starkweather's death. And the circumstances of the death places the matter in such a light, that it will be difficult to reach the merits of the case. The funeral services of the deceased were held Sunday afternoon in the Methodist church, and the remains were buried in the Phelps cemetery. By order of the sheriff, young Starkweather has been placed under nominal arrest to answer, but is not deprived of his liberty. His acquittal of crime or intent to inflict bodily harm except such as was necessary to protect himself from violent assault, it is generally believed will follow any further examination or trial.

Naples, N. Y. - 
At the home of Thomas Briggs, on the lake road, on September 11, occurred the death of Eugene Starkweather, aged 63 years. He is survived by several children. Funeral services were held from the Briggs home and from the Baptist church. Rev. A. H. McKnight had charge of the services.



From Geneva Daily Times 7 March 1908

Phelps, N. Y. -
The remains of Mrs. Eunice McMillan Starkweather, who died at Rochester, were brought here for burial yesterday. Mrs. Starkweather was born in Phelps and lived here until 15 years ago. She was 48 years of age. Her death was the result of a brief illness with pneumonia, the same disease being the cause of her husband's death, a week previous. A son and daughter survive. The remains of Mr. Starkweather, who also was a former resident of this place, will be brought here later.



From Ontario County Journal 13 November 1896

Naples, N. Y. -
The death of Walter Starkweather on Friday last was sudden and quite unaccountable. He was a farm hand and worked up to within a day or two of his death. But at the last were convulsions and struggles which seemed to have no cause. An autopsy also failed to show sufficient disease to cause death. Two theories are advanced -- that a bite from a rabid dog several years ago had finally poisoned him, and the other is that possibly by mistake he took an overdose of some powerful medicine or poison. He was a fine young man, 22 years old, and leaves a wife and one child.
