vicinity were greatly shocked to learn of the sudden death of Mrs.
Emma Brown Taylor, which occurred on Tuesday morning at ten
o'clock. Mrs. Taylor had not complained of feeling unwell and arose in
her usual spirits on Tuesday morning. About 9 o'clock she sat down to
eat her breakfast. She complained of a pain in the side of her face,
and called her daughter, Mrs. Bouglass, to assist her on to the couch.
Coroner B. S. Partridge and Dr. S. R. Wheeler were immediately summoned
but could do nothing to save the unfortunate woman, who died in about
20 minutes. Mrs. Taylor was a person of brilliant mind and was
well-known throughout the town and county, but it was in literature
that she was probably best known. At one time she wrote extensively on
the temperance question and often contributed many papers that were
read in meetings. She was also greatly interested in charitable work
and had done much good among the poor and needy as well as at the
ladies' home and foreign missionary societies. Mrs. Taylor was born in
Prattsburg, Steuben county, in 1822, but the most of her childhood days
were spent in Bristol. In 1845 she was united in marriage to John W.
Taylor, and to them were born three children: Dr. James B. Taylor,
deceased, of San Antonio, Texas; Mrs. Addie Higginbotham, deceased, of
this place; and Col. John W. Taylor who resides in Chicago. She also
leaves a stepdaughter, Mrs. Barton Bouglass, of this place. The funeral
services will be held this afternoon at 3 o'clock, and will be

On Monday last at noon, Hon. Henry W. Taylor, one of the
oldest and most universally respected and admired citizens of Ontario
county died at his home in this village of pneumonia after only a
week's illness. Judge Taylor was of puritan ancestry and
was born in Deerfield, Mass., in 1796. He was educated at Yale College,
graduating in 1816. In 1829 his alma mater conferred upon him the
of A. M., and in 1869 the same institution honored him with the degree
of LLD. In 1820 he was admitted to the bar and began the practice of
his profession at the Canandaigua bar, which then included Postmaster
General Francis Granger, John C. Spencer, Alvah Worden and Mark H.
Sibley. In 1836 he was elected to the assembly and was reelected in
'37, '38 and '39. In 1840 he removed to Marshall, Mich., and afterward
served in the legislature of that state. He returned to Canandaigua in
1848, and in 1850 he was appointed Justice of the Supreme Court and ex
officio member of the Court of Appeals. In politics he was first a
Whig and then a Republican. He assisted in the nomination of Harrison
and Tyler in the Whig convention of 1840, and his last vote was cast
for the grandson of old Tippecanoe in November. In his religious life
he exemplified the christian graces of his Puritan ancestry. He was
ever active, consistent, and devout in the service of God. He was for
over 50 years a deacon of the First Congregational church in this
village, and in 1846 he was made a corporate member of the American
Board for Foreign Missions. In 1832 he married Martha C. Masters,
daughter of Thomas Masters, one of the old shipping merchants of New
York city. At the time of his death, Judge Taylor was in years the
