Death of Harry Ward - The death, last Saturday at his home in
Richmond Mills, of Harry
Ward, father of Charles and Riley Ward of this village, (Livonia)
not an unexpected event, for he went by the very gradual decay of old
age. Harry Ward was of New England blood by both maternal and
paternal streams of heredity. His grandfather, John Ward, lived
in Connecticut and married Naomi Butler. Their children were
Calvin, Chauncey, Mary, Electa, Julia, Nabby, Marcus and Isaiah, most
of whom came to Western New York and settled in Ontario County.
Marcus and Isaiah subsequently went to Michigan and died there.
Calvin, the eldest child was born in 1787 and went to Manchester,
Bennington county, Vermont, where he married Irene, daughter of
Nathaniel Collins, a prominent member of an old influential
family. Harry, their only child, was born January 20, 1812.
In 1815 Calvin Ward and his wife took their three year old son and
came to Pittstown and bought of Parson Collins of West Bloomfield
50 acres of land at $20 per acre and settled on it, adding by
successive purchases till his farm contained over 300 acres. Here
he lived and prospered nearly 50 years - one of the most widely known
farmers in Ontario or Livingston counties. He was a pioneer in
bringing pure blooded merino sheep, which he purchased from one of the
sheep lords of Vermont - W. R. Sanford, who became a great admirer of
Mr. Ward’s success in breeding the Vermont sheep, and his warm personal
friend. Mr. Sanford was
an importer of Spanish merino flocks, making frequent visits to
the old historic land that is now in such a mad strife against her
colonies, and manifest destiny. After one of these trips he
presented Mr. Ward with a Spanish wood, gold-banded cane, in which is a
Damascus blade dirk, the head or handle of which is ornamented
with an ivory face carved in relief - of very fine workmanship.
Attorney Ward is the fortunate possessor of this heirloom.
Calvin Ward was also almost as renowned a breeder of blooded cattle
as of blooded sheep, selling calves for prices that would buy a
yoke of his neighbor’s oxen. He was also a horse fancier and
divided with “Tone” Yorks, of Lima, the reputation of being
the best judge of horses in all this section. Mr. Ward was truly
a character. He had original business energy and grasp, coupled
with rare humor and genial nature which occurred ??????. Harry
Ward grew up on the
Frost’s Hollow farm as a farmer, with decided love for live stock and
horses. He married Harriet, a daughter of Philip Miller of
Cohocton, Steuben county. Their children were Charles, attorney
at law in Livonia village, Don Carlos, now of Gordon, Neb., Ida, a
school teacher on the Long Island arm of greater New York, Riley of
Livonia village, and Burr, still on the old Calvin and Harry Ward
homestead. Besides these were two younger children now deceased -
Capitola and Henry C. Mr. Ward’s funeral was held at the memory
hallowed homestead Monday afternoon, Rev. S. M. Day officiating.
The burial was at Mount Hope cemetery, Rochester, Wednesday forenoon,
in the family lot selected by his father. H.D.K.

On the 6th of December last, Nathan E. Ward, of the
Cheshire, passed out of this life into the great future, aged 28 years

Inez E. Ward, her only child, aged 2 years and 8 months, followed her
into the spirit world, after a short sickness. This double bereavement

sympathy from all her friends. Out from the darkness of this great
and mysterious providence the voice of Jesus is heard saying, "What I
thou knowest not now, but thou shalt know hereafter." Little Inez died

Mrs. Lucinda Knapp Warfield passed away at the home of her son,
William H. Warfield, on Sunday morning, aged 93 years. She was confined
to her bed only a week, and suffered but little pain, the end of the
long life coming peacefully. She possessed a strong, vigorous
constitution and an equally strong mind, which remained clear to within
two days of her death. In June, 1902, she dislocated her hip, and since
that time she had been unable to walk. Mrs. Warfield was the oldest of
12 children born to Leonard and Marcy Knapp, who were among the early
settlers of Hopewell. Her marriage to William Warfield took place in
September, 1831. Their first home was in Hopewell, but after two years
they purchased a farm in this town, where they continued to reside
until the death of Mr. Warfield, which occurred 22 years ago, and since
then Mrs. Warfield had resided with her son. A daughter, Mrs. Susan C.
Jones, of Quincy, Mich., died in 1886. Mrs. Warfield possessed a sunny,
cheerful disposition, which age did not dim. This, combined with a keen
sense of humor, made the evening of her life as bright as the noontide,
and her friends always found her a pleasant companion. Her long life
was filled with interesting experiences and incidents which she enjoyed
relating. Her memory was clear to the last. She was never idle. Her
days were spent in sewing, reading and writing to her grandchildren.
Her last piece of work, an apron, was completed the evening before she
was taken ill. She had not used glasses for years, either for sewing,
or reading or writing. Besides her son, she is survived by six
grandchildren, fifteen great-grandchildren, one brother, Franklin E.
Knapp of Hopewell; and two sisters, Mrs. Fidelia Sutherland of this
village, and Miss Mercy Knapp, of Orleans. Mrs. Warfield had been a
member of the Methodist church in this village for many years, and her
pastor, Rev. Dr. J. Wallace Webb, officiated at the funeral on Tuesday
afternoon at 2:30 o'clock. The bearers were Clinton W. Jones and
Clarence C. Jones, grandsons, and William M. Clark and Justin E.
Newman, grandsons-in-law. The interment was in West Avenue cemetery.

Shortsville, N. Y. - The death of Zadoc Warfield, an aged
resident of this place, occurred at his home on Sunday afternoon,
December 17. Mr. Warfield was born in Montgomery county, Maryland,
February 15, 1808, and was therefore 85 years, 10 months, and 2 days
old. He moved from Maryland to Manchester in October, 1828. He was the
son of Zadoc and Rachel Warfield, and was one of twelve children, two
of whom survive him. He was married to Miss Chloe Knapp December 20,
1832. His wife preceded him to the better land August 17, 1889 -- just
4 years and 4 months before. Eight children were born to them, four
sons and four daughters, all of whom are living. He was baptized by Mr.
Osborn, of the Methodist church, about 60 years ago, and united with
the Manchester M. E. Church. The funeral was held on Wednesday

Chapinville, N. Y. - The funeral of Mrs. Zadock Warfield, who
died near the close of last week, at her home in Hopewell, near
Littleville, was attended at the family residence Monday, August 19, at
2 o'clock p.m., Rev. D. D. David officiating. The deceased was born in
the town of Hopewell, Feb. 27, 1813, and spent her entire life in sight
of her birthplace. She was married December 20th, 1832. Mr. and Mrs.
Warfield celebrated their golden wedding 6 years ago last December.
This shows they had lived together nearly 57 years. This certainly is
above the average. Few couples live together as many years. To them 8
children were born, 5 (sic) sons and 4 daughters, all of whom were
present at the funeral of the mother, the sons acting as bearers. This
honored couple also have 19 grandchildren, all living but one who died
in infancy, that being the last death in this large family until the
death of Mrs. Warfield. This surely is a remarkable record. The large
company of old and young who gathered at the funeral of their neighbor
showed the high esteem in which this Christian lady was held.

Died at Orleans, Ontario Co., N. Y., on Friday, February 9th, John
Warner, aged 91 years. This announcement records the decease
of one of our oldest inhabitants, one of the pioneers of Western New
York. Mr. Warner came to the town of Phelps in this county in
1801, his father having preceded him about four years. For more
than seventy years he has resided among us, and has been an active
participator in the sturdy efforts by which a hardy and industrious
population have made the region in which they lived one of the
most fertile and productive in the land. When he came to Ontario
County, it comprised a vast extent of territory which has
since been divided, and subdivided, into a number of now wealthy
and populous counties. Most of the large and flourishing villages
which now cluster in this region had at that time no existence, or were
mere hamlets. Geneva had then less than three
hundred inhabitants occupying between fifty and sixty buildings.
On coming to Phelps, being just arrived at man's estate, having
learned the shoemaker's trade at the east, Mr. Warner engaged in the
shoe-making business at that place, and afterwards started a tannery,
his numerous patrons being extended over a wide circuit of country.
In that business he accumulated a handsome competency -- some
$12,000 -- regarded in those days as quite a fortune. With this
capital, he removed to Orleans and engaged in mercantile pursuits, in
which, however, he was not quite so fortunate and became somewhat
involved in his pecuniary affairs in consequence of liabilities on
account of other parties. He purchased a considerable tract of
land extending about a mile, east from the present village of Orleans,
which eventually was sold off in parts, he retaining about one hundred
acres -- being the farm on which he has since lived and where he died.
His has been a life of checkered scenes marked by
alternate successes and reverses. He reared a large family
of children, all of whom we believe are still living, and well-to-do in
this world's goods.

Dead - John C. Warner died at his home in Phelps yesterday
morning, Feb. 13th,
after a long and painful illness. The funeral will be held from
his home tomorrow afternoon at 2 o'clock, the interment being at
Weedsport, the former home of his wife. We have been personally
acquainted with John Warner for thirty years, and a man more square in
his relations with all never lived, and he was the
oldest of a large family, every one of whom bore himself and herself in
the same honest and straight way. John Warner was a victim of army
disease, chronic diarrhoea. From a robust man he became almost a
living skeleton, but a shadow
of his former self. He rightfully deserved an invalid's pension,
but was never able to satisfy the government officials
that his infirmities were contracted while in the service, yet
we know this was the fact. Hundreds of men are drawing pensions
not a quarter as meritorious as was his case. Poor John.

Near Orleans in the town of Phelps, May, 27th, of the Panama Fever,
or congestion of the lungs, or both, Orson Warner, aged 35
years. The deceased left his family and friends while in good health,
about two years since, for the gold regions of California, and came
back a perfect wreck. In less than one week after his arrival, he
departed again -- but never, never to return. He leaves a wife and
three children, besides numerous relatives and sympathizing friends, to
mourn his loss. The disease baffled the skill of his physician, and all
the anxiety and effort of his many kind and endearing friends to
restore him to health, proved unavailing, and he died under these
circumstances, which are peculiarly afflicting.
From Geneva Gazette 8 January 1869
The Phelps Citizen chronicles the death of Mrs.
Susan Warner, wife of Mr. John Warner, and mother of Edwin and
Ulysses Warner Esqrs. of Orleans. She had lived to the ripe old
age of 84 years, nearly three score and ten years of which she had
passed amid the scenes by which surrounded when she took final leave
of earth, on the 29th December, 1868. She enjoyed excellent
health up to a period within a few months of her decease,
when she sustained a severe injury occasioned by a fall. She was
universally respected, and leaves a large circle of relatives to mourn
her loss and bless her memory.
From Ontario County Times 27 March 1889
Tompkins Warner, a well-to-do and highly respected farmer of
Orleans, died suddenly last Sunday. His wife and son, Dudley, started
for church Sunday forenoon, leaving Mr. Warner home alone. When they
returned, Mrs. Warner, thought it strange that her husband did not make
his appearance at the house and requested her son to go and see if he
could find him. After considerable searching in and around the barn,
Mr. Warner was found lying in a sheep pen, and from the position of the
body, it is believed that he had suffered an attack of heart disease
while sitting on the fence surrounding the pen and fallen over
backwards. In the pen were two young pigs, and the animals had torn and
mangled the dead man's head and face in a shocking manner. The deceased
was seventy-nine years of age, and leaves a wife and one son. He was an
uncle of Dr. F. P. Warner of this village.
From Geneva Gazette 10 June 1892
Mortuary - Last Friday at about 2 P. M. Mrs. Ulysses Warner of
Orleans passed away, from the residence of her son-in-law (Geo. F.
Cramer) in this village. As has been stated Mrs. Warner about
four weeks previous swallowed a dose of bunion liniment which contained
helibore by mistake for a rheumatic remedy. Very soon afterwards
she started for Geneva with her husband, and before arriving the deadly
poison began to show its effects. She was promptly placed under
of Dr. Covert, who also had counsel, and every known antidote and
expedient were employed to counteract the effect
of poison. All proved unavailing, and death alone proved a relief from
her terrible sufferings.
The deceased was the second wife of Hon. Ulysses Warner. She bore
him thirteen children, all but two of whom are still living and of
adult age. Though widely scattered, all the survivors were
present at her death and
funeral, as was also a stepson, Mr. John C. Warner. The
bereavement is peculiarly a sad one to the husband who is partially
blind and threatened with total
loss of sight. It is but a short time since this large and
universally respected family were united at the old homestead to
congratulate the beloved father on arriving at four score years.
Alas, how soon has their joy been turned to mourning.

From Geneva Advertiser 10 December 1901
Sam Warth, the old Exchange street grocer, died at his rooms over
the store last Sunday, after a long, tedious and painful illness.
His age was about 67 or 68 years. For more than twenty
years he had been a keen sufferer from catarrh, and had doctored for it
with about everybody, and to no avail. His case was beyond the
reach of medicine or treatment, and he finally came to the conclusion
that all medical men were humbugs, and all
he had to do was to continue to suffer until death came to his relief.
Sam Warth began his mercantile life in a very humble way, and
he used to like to talk of it. He peddled nuts and fruits from
a basket. He saved his earnings. With some help from his
father, he bought that block on Exchange street, opened it as saloon
and had a small dance hall in the upper story. We don't recall
how many years he conducted it, but after awhile open it as a grocery.
How well he succeeded in this line is known to all. His aim
was to keep everything on sale and of the choicest and best. His
wife was a daughter of Jacob Everson by whom he had one son, Sam.
brother John was with him until he died; then his wife dropped off,
the son, and it left him with only one near relative, a half-brother,
Jacob Hoebeck, who came down from the west to be near him and look
the interests of the store. The funeral takes place from his late
home tomorrow afternoon at two o'clock.
From Geneva Gazette 3 February 1899
SAMUEL C. WARTH - died in his apartments over 440 Exchange street
last Monday evening, aged about 38 years. He had been ill for a long
time, disease finally attacking his lungs. He was reduced almost
to a skeleton. The deceased was born in Geneva, and assisted his father
in the management of a large and prosperous business. By this
bereavement, Mr. Warth is left destitute of near relatives. After
the death of his wife he gave up housekeeping and fitted up living
apartments over his store, where he and his only son and child spent
their nights in filial companionship. Now they are desolate.
We tender the bereaved father most profound sympathy.
