From Shortsville Enterprise 15 May 1908

Cornelius Stockerman,
a promising young farm hand, employed by Peter J. Dunk on the Walter S. Throop farm, 1 mile south of Port Gibson, committed suicide by hanging, sometime during the early hours of Monday morning. Stockerman, who was a Hollander, and had been in this country but three years, left the Dunk farm on Sunday morning apparently in good spirits. He boarded a trolley car and spent the day with friends. Sunday evening upon his arrival at the farm he procured a lantern and went to the creamery, where he wrote his goodbye in Hollandish on the back of an advertising poster. He then proceeded to the cow stable where he secured a rope and went up to the second story of the barn. He made a noose in the rope and tied it to a brace on one of the supports, and then hung himself, leaving the lighted lantern near him on the floor. Mr. Dunk and another farm employee missed him from his bed on Monday morning and started to search for him and found him as described about 7 o'clock. It is reported that in time of bad weather he would often become melancholy, and it is thought that this is the reason for his rash act. He is about 23 years of age and is survived by his parents and brother in Holland; also one brother, Peter Stockerman, and a brother-in-law, Frank DeBolt, who reside near Newark.

FOUND DEAD IN A BARN - The Strange Disappearance of Frank Stowell Cleared Up -
Jacob L. Beach and his son, Charles D. Beach, residing at No. 87 Geneva street, had a startling experience at about one o'clock yesterday afternoon. Having occasion to use a box which was stored under a carriage in the rear of the house, Chas. D. Beach, accompanied by his father went to the barn to secure it.  Removing a wheelbarrow which stood under the carriage, the younger Beach pulled forth the box.  As he did so he observed a man lying under the rear of the carriage with his face close to the east side of the barn. Calling to his father, he told him of the discovery, saying that he thought the man was drunk. With the aid of his son, Mr. Beach pulled the carriage away, then took hold of the man who lay on his side. Turning the stranger over so that his face became exposed, Mr. Beach at once discovered that he was dead. The body rested upon some bagging. The face and neck were of a purple or reddish color.  An examination of the bagging by the GAZETTE reporter disclosed a discoloration which proved to be blood.  John Ryan, butcher, viewed the body and immediately identified it as that of Frank Stowell, who disappeared on the night of Feb. 8th.  Stowell had been drinking heavily, and it is supposed that while intoxicated he wandered into the barn to sleep off the effects of the liquor.  The deceased was about 42 years of age, married and his wife is in Steuben county. Stowell has resided in Geneva for about seven years.  He was formerly caretaker of Pulteney Park and also was employed by some of our citizens in caring for lawns, cutting wood, etc. The body was removed to the morgue in the rear of Borgman's furniture warehouse.  An inquest will be held as soon as possible.  Chief of Police Kane is of the opinion that death was due to drink and exposure.

When Stowell left his home, he acted very strange; and as if he was somewhat demented. Since his disappearance, the police have made a diligent search for him, but no trace could be found.  It has been the opinion that Stowell had committed suicide by jumping into Seneca Lake. Coroner O. H. Wright was notified of the finding of the body. He has directed Undertaker Fletcher to take charge of the remains.  Frank Stowell leaves a wife, two brothers and one son. Burial Glenwood Cemetery.

Died, in this village, on Wednesday morning, 12th instant, Mrs. Sarah Stryker, wife of the Rev. Peter Stryker. Mrs. Stryker was the daughter of Harmanus Barkerloo, of Long Island. The subject of this notice was his eldest child. She was born in 1766, and was remarkable in early youth for great loveliness of person and amiableness of character. In 1787 she was united by marriage to the Rev. Peter Stryker, at present the oldest minister in connection with the Reformed Dutch Church. After a union of fifty years, she has left him with three sons and two daughters to weep for her loss. They weep for her, not as lost, but as a most beloved earthly friends, who has preceded them to that world of purity and of love, which she was so well fitted to enter. At an early period of life, when the vanities of the world are most alluring, she was drawn by divine grace to the Savior of sinners. His name she has professed, and his cause she has honored by a well ordered life and conversation of nearly fifty years. With a mind above the common order, the most apparent traits of her character were prudence, delicacy, gentleness, and benevolence, which, added to piety, formed an attractive cluster of female excellencies. The world knew but little of her; enough to her was it to be known of him whose precepts she studied and practiced.

Michael Sullivan,
of Lake street, a laborer, was killed by being struck by an engine of a Fall Brook freight train just before 9 o'clock Sunday morning. The accident occurred at the Evans street crossing and Sullivan thought he could cross the track before the train, which was going slowly, reached him. He failed to do it, however, the engine struck him, breaking his hip and making a severe scalp wound and causing internal injuries. He was not so badly injured but that he could walk to the flag house a short distance away, assisted by the flagman, where he remained until the ambulance arrived and he was taken to the hospital, where he was attended. He was so badly hurt though, that he died at 1 o'clock. Coroner Weyburn was notified, and after hearing the particulars, concluded it was purely an accidental death and will hold no inquest. The deceased leaves his wife, a daughter and three sons. The funeral will be held at St. Francis church at 9 o'clock tomorrow morning.

Patrick Sullivan, bath keeper at the Clifton Springs Sanitarium, committed suicide by poisoning on the train between Clifton Springs and Geneva. He arrived in Geneva on the 9:35 a.m. train. When he got off the cars he said he was ill. He took the Kirkwood bus, and as soon as he arrived at the hotel, he stated that he had taken poison. Coroner Maynard was summoned, and was given a letter by Sullivan addressed to his son at Clifton Springs in which he spoke of his determination to die and bade his wife and children goodbye. Sullivan died about ten minutes after he reached the hotel. No cause can be assigned for the rash deed as everything was pleasant in his home and he was apparently happy and cheerful as well as the rest.

He, with his two brothers, Timothy and Dennis, was employed in a gang of structural iron workers, who were erecting an immense derrick. At a distance of 100 feet from the ground, young Sullivan was at the tip end of a boom arranging the ropes which were to run from the end of the boom to the top of the main upright. Suddenly the great boom cracked and plunged downward, taking the fearless young workman with it. On the instant he leaped for the guy rope only to miss it by a short distance, and then he fell, dying at the feet of his two brothers, who had witnessed the awful descent. The remains were brought to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. John C. Sullivan. Besides his parents, he leaves seven brothers, Dennis and Timothy who were with him, Michael and Jeremiah, Denver, Col., Daniel of Buffalo; Cornelius of Depew; John of East Bloomfield; and one sister, Miss Mary Sullivan of Geneva.
