From Ontario County Times 8 January 1890

John Trafton,
a well-known and highly respected farmer of Bristol Center, committed suicide Sunday afternoon by shooting himself through the brains. He had been a sufferer from poor health for several years past, and it is believed that he became despondent of ever recovering, and finally decided to put an end to his suffering by taking his own life. It is also reported that he was a heavy loser by reason of the recent failure of Wilson, Luther & Wilson, extensive lumber dealers of Belding, Mich., and it is thought that might have affected his mind. He was seventy-five years of age, and leaves a wife and one son.

From Ontario County Times 15 January 1890

It seems that the published reports of the circumstances attending the recent death of Mr. John Trafton of Bristol, in this county, are erroneous. The members of his family and others best informed as to the particulars assert that his shooting of himself was by accident rather than design. He had brought the pistol, the first one he had ever owned, only a few days previous, with the idea that he might be assaulted as had the old man Alger a short time before, and he was examining its workings when the weapon was accidentally discharged. All the circumstances point to this explanation as the true one. Mr. Trafton had not lost money, as reported, and was not suffering mental distress of any kind. Moreover, he had been in ill health, and by advice of his physician, had taken morphine to relieve his pain, so that had he desired to take his own life, he had in this drug the means at hand and would naturally have resorted to it.

Mrs. Henry Trait
committed suicide by taking carbolic acid at her home Monday afternoon. No cause can be assigned for this tragic ending of Mrs. Trait's life for on Monday morning she appeared in her usual good spirits and was outside enjoying the sunshine and visited with her neighbors, and later entered the house and commenced the usual routine of household duties. When her husband left the home at noon, he little dreamed of the terrible shock he would receive when he returned. When he reached home at six o'clock he found the house securely locked and gaining admission with the key which he always carried, he found the lifeless form of her whom he had left only a few short hours before. The acid was in crystal form and about two ounces was dissolved in a basin of water and the entire amount was drank, producing almost instant death. It appears that the fatal dose was taken in the kitchen and that Mrs. Trait walked to the sitting room and laid down on the couch and covered her face with a pillow. Dr. S. R. Wheeler was called and gave it as his opinion that death must have occurred at about five o'clock. Dr. W. P. Warner, coroner of Canandaigua, was summoned and viewed the remains on Tuesday morning and granted a death certificate. Mrs. Trait was 49 years of age and came to East Bloomfield from Baltimore, Md., in 1883. Her husband has the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in this his terrible affliction. The funeral was held from the house on Thursday at 3 p.m. Weekly Review

The funeral of Mrs. Maria Sharpsteen Tubbs, widow of Moses Tubbs, was held from the late home in the western part of the town on Friday afternoon at 1 o'clock, Rev. W. W. Rothrock, pastor of the Methodist church at Allens Hill, of which she was a member, officiating. Interment was in Evergreen cemetery at Baptist Hill.

She was born in Niagara county October 9, 1822, a daughter of Humphrey and Permilia Pease Sharpsteen, and in 1857, she married Moses Tubbs, who died several years ago. Mrs. Tubbs was the oldest resident of the town and was a remarkable woman in many ways, having retained all of her faculties until the last, her illness lasting only a few hours. She was able to read without the aid of glasses, and her mind was clear to recall history of her girlhood days, also the happenings of recent years; she was interested in current events, being a companion for both young and old. She enjoyed many long automobile rides during the past summer, and assisted with the household duties. She will be missed by many besides the family circle, as her acquaintances were also her friends. The survivors are one son, William, of Livonia; four daughters, Mrs. Harvey Ashley, of Armada, Michigan; Mrs. Wendall Gates of Barker; Mrs. Harvey Bliss and Miss Ada Tubbs, both of this town, the latter having cared for her mother at the old homestead; a brother, Adam Sharpsteen; and sister, Miss Rachel Sharpsteen, both residing in Barker.

Silas Tucker,
a well-to-do farmer, residing on the pre-emption road south of Geneva, died the 14th ult., aged 82 years.

From Geneva Gazette 25 August 1871

wife of Silas Tucker, died at the farm residence in Seneca on the 14th August inst. at the ripe old age of 74 years 10 months and 24 days.  Mrs. Tucker was second daughter of Jephtha Earl, and was born on the farm subsequently owned by the late John Nicholas, in the year 1796, and was at the time of her death among the oldest if not the oldest native of our town. She was married (to her now aged surviving husband) at the age of 23 and they soon thereafter settled in Benton, where they resided until about the year 1830, when Mr. Tucker returned to Seneca, and purchased the farm on the old pre-emption, where he still lives and where his estimable consort died.  Of the family of 14 brothers and sisters, of which Mrs. Tucker was one, but four now survive, : viz. Jephtha and Arthur Earl of Benton, Mrs. Calvin Jackson of Canandaigua, and Mrs. John Chamberlin of this village.

Mrs. Tucker reared a family of eight children, of whom six survive to mourn her loss.  They are Arthur and Morris, settled in Indiana; Erastus, who remains on the old homestead; Mrs. Daniel Lord of Dunkirk, Mrs. Allen Powers of Seneca, and Mrs. Chas. A. Jones of Paola, Kansas.  All were present with the aged and bereaved father, to mourn at the grave of the best of wives, the fondest and most considerate of mothers, the kindest and most exemplary of neighbors.

Thus one by one as fall the ancient forest trees, passes away the early settlers, by whose foresight, toil and industry our section of the country has been made so thrifty and prosperous -- for the wives and mothers of earlier times performed their full part in labor suited to their capacity -- at the spinning wheel and the loom, and in the dairy -- which made them help-meets indeed to the sturdy farmer husband.

Last Wednesday evening residents of the town of Farmington, returning home from the fair, discovered the lifeless body of Patrick Tuohey of East Victor, lying in a ditch less than three feet from the R. R. track near a crossing at the West Farmington Station. One leg was severed from the body in such a manner as to indicate plainly that the deceased had come to his death beneath the wheels of the cars. His skull was also crushed in. A few dollars in money were in his pockets. It is known that Tuohey came to Canandaigua Wednesday morning to attend the fair. Further than that little is known of his movements but it is believed that he started for home at night on a freight train and fell beneath the wheels while trying to get off at West Farmington. He lived at East Victor and leaves a wife and two children. He was about twenty-five years of age. In connection with this sad accident is recalled the remarkable fact that his father, Martin Tuohey, and his brother, Michael, were killed by the cars, while the only remaining male member of the family, his brother, Matthew, is now in an insane asylum, suffering from injuries received in a railroad accident. The father was killed years ago while he was employed as switchtender on the Northern Central road. Michael, the oldest son, was killed several years ago while coupling cars on the New York Central. Matthew's injuries which landed him in the insane asylum, and which it is believed will eventually prove fatal, were received about two months ago in a fall from a freight car on the New York Central. Patrick, the last son, was not in the employ of the railroad at the time of his death, although he had been at times.

Death of Andrew Turck -
We have to chronicle the death of Andrew Turck , one of our oldest and most highly respected citizens, which occurred on Sunday morning November 25, 1888, in the 91st year of his age, at his residence on his farm about a mile west of Glass Factory Bay, some two miles south of this village.  He was born at Guilderland, Albany county, N. Y., January 19, 1798; his father, Abraham, being a native of Germany who emigrated to this country at an early day.  January 30, 1819, Andrew Turck married Miss Catharine Turner of Guilderland, who died December 15, 1857.  Mr. Turck was a glass blower by trade, and after living at Clyde and some other places he finally removed to the neighborhood of Glass Factory Bay and was one of the first workmen employed at the Glass Factory at that place.  He was one of the earliest members of the Reformed Dutch Church of Geneva, with which he united on confession of faith October 14, soon after the organization of that church.  He remained a firm and consistent member of this church up to his death at which time he was the oldest member on the roll of the church membership.  He was one of the Deacons of that church in 1835-6, and from 1843 to 1846 inclusive; a ruling Elder for 6 years from January 1, 1848, and according to the laws of the church was a member of the Great Consistor up to the time of his death.  His decease now leaves Mrs. Elizabeth Goundry Watson as the oldest name on the church roll now living, she having united on confession of faith February 5, 1836. Mr. Turck had been in rather feeble health for a long time, but more from the infirmities of old age than from any disease.   He had long looked and patiently waited for the summons to call him home, and not long ago he remarked that it sometimes seemed as if the Lord had overlooked him an forgotten to send the messenger of death.  The summons however came quite suddenly, and he quietly passed away on Sunday morning last while sitting in his chair.  The funeral took place at his residence November 27th, Rev. H. B. Stevenson officiating, and his remains were interred in Cromwell's Hollow Cemetery.  Three sons and two daughters survive him; one of the latter is the wife of Abraham Cronk, who united with the Dutch Church at a very early day.

Frederick Turck, a life-long resident of the town of Geneva, died very suddenly Wednesday evening, March 18th, about half-past eight, of valvular disease of the heart. He retired soon after eight o'clock, but was compelled to rise by a violent fit of coughing and pain in his heart, and died a few minutes after, sitting in his chair. Mr. Turck was born and lived all his life on the farm where he died. Hew was a great lover of nature and few knew more about the birds and flowers, their habits and ways, than he. Last September he had the misfortune to break his leg, but notwithstanding his age (he was in his 75th year), he had nearly recovered, and on the morning of the day he died walked to the woods with a neighbor, and was, apparently, in good health and spirits. Mr. Turck was one of a family of eleven, of whom there survive at present two sisters, Miss Margaret Turck and Mrs. Amelia Cronk.

Obituary - Edward Turnbull  -
No face from the country has been more familiar to Genevans for a half century and upwards than that of the subject of this notice -- good-natured, laughing, genial Ed. Turnbull.  Thus he appeared to us as well the last time we ever met him as the first. How little we dreamed that last pleasant interview would be the last. We numbered Mr. T. among our oldest and and prompt-paying patrons; and yet politically he and we were wide apart as the polls.  He was as honest as earnest a Republican.  He conceded to his opponents the same honesty and sincerity of opinions.  Hence in controversy with him there was only good-natured badinage.

Edward Turnbull, who died July 6, 1889, was the youngest but one of nine children born to Adam and Margaret Turnbull, the father a native of Northumberland Co. England, the mother, of Scotland.  There was but a year difference in the period of their migration to this country -- Mrs. T. preceding, landing in America in 1800.  The couple were married in 1801, and resided one year on the Genesee Flats, on part of the Wadsworth estate.  They then moved to Seneca, near Hall's Corners, and founded the homestead where their large family was born and reared, of whom only one (Alexander) now survives.

Edward Turnbull married Adeline Campbell of Seneca in November, 1845.  The issue of this marriage was only two children: Margaret A., unmarried, and Harriet E., wife of Charles Hershey; the latter couple have lived with their last surviving parent the past five years.  Mrs. Edward Turnbull died Dec. 25, 1856.

There are very few indeed who, like Mr. Turnbull, was born, lived for 73 years and died on the same place.  The funeral was held last Monday afternoon at the Presbyterian chapel in Seneca, the Rev. Mr. Temple officiating.  There was a very large attendance of sorrowing friends.

From Geneva Gazette 31 August 1900

At a very early hour last Monday morning Marcus L. Turner, a colored man aged about 60 years, left his home, 216 Pulteney street, and made his way, arrayed only in his night shirt, by a circuitous route to the steamboat basin, where, securing a small rope, he tied one end about his neck, secured the other end to the dock, and dropped over it so that his feet barely touched the water.  In that position he was shortly afterwards discovered by a hand employed on one of the Seneca Lake steamers.  He was dead when thus discovered, though his body was warm.  Coroner Weyburn was promptly notified and took charge of the body.  Evidence goes to show that Turner had suffered from melancholia ever since the death of his wife occurring about a year ago.  He owned the house in which he lived and was surrounded by several children, about an equal number of sons and daughters, the youngest being about 14 years old.  His family relations were most pleasant, but his bereavement by the death of his wife weighed so heavily upon him as to unsettle his reason.  He was quite a favorite with people of his race and enjoyed the respect of the community.

Clifton Springs, N. Y. - 
The residents of this village were deeply shocked yesterday forenoon to learn of the sudden death of Rev. Dr. Chas. W. Turrell. Although he had been in poor health during the past year, his condition was not thought to be critical and his death came very unexpectedly. For some time previous to his failing health, Dr. Turrell was the pastor of the local Universalist church, but had to give up the ministry on account of his health about two years ago, since which time he has not been able to preach. He is survived by his wife of this village, and one son, of Tucson, Arizona, Prof. Charles A. Turrell, who is a professor in the University of Arizona at that place. The funeral services will be held tomorrow afternoon at his late home on Broad street at 2 o'clock and will be conducted by Rev. M. C.

DEATHS.  In this town, on the 9th instant, Benjamin Tuttle, in his 81st year. Mr. Tuttle was a soldier of the revolution—for the last 45 years a resident of this town, and has, through life, sustained an unblemished reputation.  He was a firm believer in the doctrines of God’s impartial grace, and his faith abundantly sustained him, while contemplating upon his departure hence.  It robbed death of its terrors, and unfolded to his view the bright regions of joy, enabling him peacefully to resign his spirit to him who gave it.

He has left an aged companion, and a numerous family of children and friends to lament their loss.
His funeral was attended by a large concourse of sympathizing neighbors and friends, on the 10th, and the consolations of the gospel feelingly tendered by our Bro. O. [Oliver] Ackley.

From Shortsville Enterprise 13 February 1936

The mystery surrounding the death of Joseph Eugene Tuttle, 45, of Manchester, is one that will probably go forever unsolved. Missing from the train crew of freight No. 484, when it arrived in Manchester at 10:15 on Saturday evening, a frantic search finally located his crushed body on the Lehigh Valley right-of-way about an eighth of a mile west of the Rochester Junction station. Tuttle was middle brakeman of a freight train that left Suspension Bridge about 7:00 o'clock Saturday evening. The train next made a stop at Rochester Junction and the engineer has stated that he saw Tuttle as the train pulled out of that station. Upon arrival in Manchester, Tuttle was missing and searching parties were immediately organized to comb along the railroad tracks. Near Rochester Junction the mangled body was found. It had been passed over by at least one train. General opinion among railroad men is that Tuttle fell off his own train and was not only struck by it, but also was hit by a passenger train which passed along shortly afterwards.

At the time of his death, he was a conductor on the Lehigh Valley Railroad and had been twenty-three years in service with that railroad. He was a member of the Brotherhood of Railroad Trainmen and a member of the Wesleyan Methodist church of Canandaigua. Mr. Tuttle was born in Farmington, where he attended rural schools. Later he went to the College of Agriculture at Cornell University, Ithaca. He was united in marriage with Miss Harriet Cooper of Ontario, Canada, twenty-five years ago. Tuttle is survived by his widow, Mrs. Margaret Tuttle of Manchester; six daughters, Mrs. LeRoy Short and Miss Mabel Tuttle of Syracuse, Mrs. William Mason of Palmyra, and Misses Rose Alice, Clara and Janet of Manchester; also two sons, Robert Tuttle of Canandaigua and Albert Tuttle of Manchester; his mother, Mrs. Elizabeth Tuttle of Manchester; one sister, Mrs. William H. White of Binghamton; and three grandchildren. Funeral services were held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Baptist church in Manchester, with burial following in the South Farmington cemetery. Services were conducted by the Rev. Cecil Huntsman of Canandaigua with the Brotherhood of Trainmen in charge of the interment.

Canandaigua, N. Y., March 21 -
The funeral of William Twamley will be held Monday morning at 10 o'clock from St. Mary's church in this city. Mr. Twamley met his death when endeavoring to stop a grass fire that he had started on his own premises about six miles south of this city and which had spread to the adjoining lands of Adolphus Sena. Whether Mr. Stanley died as a result of the burns or whether he dropped dead of heart trouble will probably never be known. His clothing, when his body was found, was nearly burned off his body and his body itself was severely burned. It is believed that he dropped dead from exertion of fighting the flames and that the fire afterwards crept up to him. The theory is strengthened by the fact that he had lately been suffering with his heart the evening before, in going home from a neighbors where he had spent the evening, was compelled to rest several times. A curious circumstance was the finding on his person of a considerable sum of money which he carried in his hip pocket and which the flames had not reached, although the most of his clothing was consumed. The money was protected by the man's body which pressed it down solidly to the earth. Mr. Twamley left his wife, two daughters, Mary Smith and Mrs. Anna Van Ree, both of Rochester; and four sons, William, Thomas and Edward Twamley, all of Rochester, and John A. Twamley of Cheshire.

John Twoomey,
an aged resident of Seneca Castle, was found dead on a couch at his home today. Mr. Twoomey had evidently been dead for several days. There was no evidence of foul play and death was undoubtedly due to natural causes, but Coroner Flint left here this afternoon to view the remains and investigate the the case. Mr. Twoomey was about 70 years of age and had resided alone in a house on a small place owned by him for a number of years. The other members of Mr. Twoomey's family, consisting of his wife, two daughters, and one son, have resided in Geneva. The discovery of Mr. Toomey's death was made this noon by neighbors. Several days ago the rural mail carrier who passes the Twoomey home, which is located about a mile west of Seneca Castle on the Orleans road, left some mail in the box in front of the house. On his trip the next day he noticed that the mail was still in the box and that the door of the house was open. Again today when passing the house he noticed that the mail was still in the box and that the door of the house had not been closed. After passing the Twoomey house, the mail carrier met a Mr. Maney and he informed him of the conditions at the Twoomey house. The fact that the man had not been seen for several days had already been commented upon and so Mr. Maney with another neighbor went to the Twoomey house. When the party entered the house, they discovered the body of Mr. Twoomey on a couch in the sitting room. A brief examination showed that he had probably been dead for some time. Word was sent to Chief Kane and Coroner Flint and the members of Mr. Twoomey's family here. Coroner Flint left for Seneca Castle on the 2:20 Rochester and Eastern car and Undertakers Devaney and Fletcher also left this afternoon to bring the remains to Geneva.

The aged man went out early this morning to burn some brush and stubble at a considerable distance from the house. At noon his wife blew the horn to call him to dinner, but he did not return. Thinking that he had gone to a neighbor's for dinner, she made no further inquiry at the time. When Mr. Twomley failed to reach home at supper time, his son, John, with some neighbors, went in search of his father. The body was found in the center of a burned tract, with the clothing nearly consumed. It is thought he suffered a fainting spell and fell into the blazing stubble.

Naples, N. Y. - 
Naples was shocked early Friday morning to hear of the death of Mrs. Lena Woodruff Tyler, wife of Howard Tyler. She had been in poor health for some time, but was not seriously ill until the past three weeks, and even then her friends could not believe that death would claim her. A complication of diseases with asthma and heart trouble caused her great suffering for the past few weeks. It is especially sad, as her only son, Jack, a lad of 17, is very ill with Bright's disease and his condition is said to have been in a great measure responsible for Mrs. Tyler's failing health. Lena Woodruff was born in Naples in January, 1874, a daughter of Oliver M. and Helen Simonds Woodruff. At the age of 20, she was left motherless with a small brother and a baby sister of five days to bring up. Her father passed away last winter, having always made his home with his daughter. In September, 1894, she was married to Howard Tyler, son of Mr. and Mrs. Darwin Tyler, and to them were born four children, Cherrie, Marian and Jack, who survive, and Gordon, who died in infancy. She was a member of the Methodist church until failing health would not permit her to walk so far when she transferred to the Presbyterian. Besides her husband, she leaves three children, Mrs. Howard J. Walker, Miss Marion Tyler and Jack Tyler; and a grandson, Gordon Walker; a brother, Robert J. Woodruff; and a sister, Mrs. Ernest W. Thompson, of Rochester. A private funeral was held at the home on Sunday afternoon, conducted by her pastor, Rev. J. H. France. A great profusion of flowers paid tribute to the beautiful character and life of the deceased.

Naples, N. Y. -  Hollis J. Tyler
died at his beautiful home on Cohocton street on Monday, August 25, aged 83 years. He had been until three years ago, unquestionably, one of the most prominent agriculturists and business men of the town. His activity in the management of thousands of acres of farming land, and in buying and selling various products, largely wool, was remarkable. His farm home, built some 30 years ago, is one of the finest in the county with its out buildings. He was keen and reliable, honest and fair to all. Mr. Tyler was the son of John H. Tyler and was born in Smithfield, Madison Co., N. Y., coming to Naples with his parents when a boy. The old Tyler house still stands near the reservoir, but they also worked large tracts on Pine Hill in the southern part of the town and in other sections. His father died and he grew up to manhood and took hold of his life's work with formidable energy. He married Miss Salome Field, of Cohocton, who was a perfect help mate to him in his busy life. She died a few years ago. Including his wool buying and other speculative interests, his income amounted to from $15,000 to $25,000 yearly. He knew everybody and everybody knew him. Besides this, he was public-spirited, interested in schools and especially in the Methodist church to whose support he had been a large contributor, to all reform measures, and was a stout Republican and lover of his country. His remarkable strength continued until some three years ago, when he became afflicted with a cancerous difficulty which at last proved fatal.

He leaves two children, Charles M., who has succeeded him the in the conduct of the great estate, and Mrs. Amelius Overpeck of Rapid City, Dakota; another daughter, Mrs. Emma Overpeck, recently died in that city. Two grandsons are in the east, Dr. William Tyler of New York, and Dana Tyler, who is on the farm home after a successful business career in the west. There are a number of grandchildren in Dakota. A nephew, Hollis Tyler, now in Idaho, was cared for by him until he reached maturity. He died as bravely as he lived and all through southern Ontario and adjoining counties, his death is lamented. He is also deeply mourned by his daughter-in-law, Mrs. Mary Luther Tyler, and her daughter, Miss Augusta, who are also residents of the farm home. The funeral was held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the house and 2:30 at the church, the pastor, Rev. D. O. Chamberlayne officiating. He had been a member for most of his life of the Methodist church and a steady and liberal supporter of its services. The burial was at Rose Ridge.
