WAS IT SUICIDE? -- Death of Charles
Morning - A DOSE OF MORPHINE
Charles Yeomans, familiarly known as "old Charley," a
good-natured, and at the same time a dissipated tailor of a sarcastic
turn of mind, aged 74 years, died at his room, over Mr. P. O'Riely's
store, on Exchange street, yesterday morning at 11 o'clock. The
deceased went to the Watkins to the regatta last week and then and
afterwards drank to considerable excess. He purchased
some morphine during the latter part of the week. He complained
on Saturday and Sunday of his inability to sleep, and asked several
persons how much morphine a man ought to take to induce sleep.
Sunday night, or late Sunday afternoon, he went from his room into
the street and was seen carrying a small tin-pail of water. The
next morning his step-son, _____ Bushman, who has been employed with
his step-father as a tailor, went up stairs to begin work for the

two persons went up stairs during the day, and towards evening it was
found that Yeomans was dangerously ill, and Edward O'Riely found a

Yeomans in a stupor and all of the symptoms indicated that the man was

The old man passed away quietly and easily, breathing his last at 10:45
yesterday morning. Yeomans is an Englishman by birth and is said to
have relatives near
London, England, who are well-to-do in this world's goods. But
Yeomans never corresponded with them and said that he should have
nothing to do with them. He married a woman residing in Ohio,
about twenty-five years ago, but they were unable to live together and
Yeomans obtained a divorce. After that he married Mrs. Bushman of
this place, but she was unable to live with him and they
separated. "Charlie" was well-known among the boys and business
men as a jolly old fellow, full of jokes and stories, but very untidy,
to say the least, in his habits. He always made very sarcastic
remarks about those who committed, or tried to commit suicide; he had
scouted the idea of inflicting injury upon, or of killing himself.

From Naples Record 8 May 1895
Mrs. Mary Yocum died at the residence of her son-in-law, E. E.
Baker, at Seneca Castle, April 25, 1895. Her maiden name was Mary
McGregory. She was born December 25, 1832, in the town of Phelps,
consequently was 62 years and 4 months if age at the time of her death.
She was first married to Mr. Randall Haskins, who died in a few years
leaving her with one little daughter, Emma. Twenty years ago she was
married to Mr. Swan Yocum, who with his two daughters mourn the loss of
a kind companion, a wise counselor and mother, tenderly beloved, as
their watchful, anxious care testified. Her home for many years was in
Naples, N. Y., where she had many friends. About seven years since, the
family removed to Canandaigua, where they still reside. In January she
came to visit her daughter, but in a few days was taken seriously ill,
and for more than three months was confined to the house and much of
the time to her bed. Her disease was of such a character that often she
suffered extreme agony, then would quietly and consciously express a
wish, till every detail had been planned as calmly as though to start
on any earthly journey. It was a privilege she prized to be near the
pastor of the Presbyterian church of this place, with which she first
united about forty years ago, and to enjoy the sympathy and prayers so
often offered, and which seemed to uplift her like a benediction. Her
faith was of that fibre that overcomes the world, and though life was
sweet and friends dear, she longed for the release, and when it came
she quietly fell asleep. About one week before her death, she was
desirous of partaking of the Lord's supper; the sacrament was
administered and she enjoyed the solemn scene very much. She has gone
before, and her daughter, Mrs. Baker, has the sympathy of many in this
place, who know by experience what it is to lose a mother. She also
leaves one grandson and two sisters, Mrs. Sarah Childs, of this place,
and Mrs. Elizabeth McCrady of Prattsburg. Her funeral was held at the
house where she died on Saturday afternoon, April 27, the Rev. H. O.
Cornell officiating. Her remains were laid to rest in the Whitney

ANOTHER OLD RESIDENT GONE - The painful duty devolves upon us this
week of recording the death of Mr. Aaron Young, which sad
event occurred on Tuesday afternoon, about 3 o'clock. Suddenly as
the death-stroke fell at last, it was not wholly unlooked for by either
deceased or his family. One or two previous attacks of
paralysis which he had suffered and from which he but partially
admonished them that he was liable to the final, fatal stroke at any
time. It is however none the less saddening and bereaving to family and
friends, for they mourn the loss of a kind father and an upright
Someone familiar with his life and the circumstances
of his death, furnishes the following particulars for the Geneva
Courier. One year ago the 24th of last December, he was
down with paralysis, this being his first day's sickness during his
life. Since that time his strength has gradually declined, though he
has never relinquished his daily walk. He entered his house at
about half-past two o'clock yesterday afternoon from one of these
seemingly as well as usual. Very soon after his entrance he was
visited with another stroke of this malady from which all efforts to
him proved vain, and within an hour afterwards he died.
Deceased was born at Hanover, N. J., June 20, 1790, and was at the time
of his death 79 years of age. He removed with his father's family
to this section of country in 1810 and settled about six miles from
this village in the town of Phelps. He married his wife, who still
survives him, 8th February, 1816, and immediately established himself
in this place, having since that time dwelt in the house in which he
died. He had six children, three sons and three daughters, all of
whom are living, respected members of society. His oldest son and
daughter were with him at the time of his death.
Mr. Young has lived to see his descendants to the third generation.
He has often during his life-time been honored with offices of
public trust, the duties of which he has ever discharged with fidelity,
always enjoying in a marked degree the confidence and esteem of his
neighbors. As a citizen, his death will be universally regretted,
and the places he was accustomed to frequent will miss his genial face
and many interesting anecdotes of the early settlement
of this beautiful village. No man, we presume, has watched closer and
with more pride than he its constant growth and improvement.

After a long illness, Mrs. Jane Arnott Young died at her
home on Madison street on Monday morning. A devoted wife and mother but
left a widow eleven years ago, Mrs. Young has ever shown to her family
and friends through years of frail and delicate health in a remarkable
degree that Christian cheerfulness which brightens the home of an
invalid and lightens the burden of days of suffering. Grievously
afflicted by the loss of loving and devoted children she has always
borne her grief with wonderful patience, longing only for the time to
come when she too might be relieved from the burdens of the flesh to
enter into the joy and rest of those in Paradise. To the family and
especially to the devoted daughter who has watched and tended her
mother with such unselfish care and love, their many friends desire now
to offer their heartfelt sympathy. The funeral will take place Thursday
afternoon from Trinity church at 2:30 o'clock.
