From Ontario County Journal 21 February 1879

The cause of the sudden and sad death of Mrs. Mary A. Buchan, as developed at the inquest held here by Coroner Newman, was paralysis of the heart. Her age was nearly 56 years. She had been visiting her father and mother at Honeoye Falls, and took the train there for this village, to return to her home in Hopewell, at 12:10 on Thursday of last week. She then seemed to be in good health, although she complained to a lady sitting in the seat with her of having experienced severe pains in the head the night before. After the train passed West Bloomfield, a messenger went into the baggage car and informed the conductor that a lady was very sick in the coach. He went in and found Mrs. B. in an alarming condition, and hurried the speed of the train to reach Miller's Corners. Upon reaching there a physician was speedily sent for, but she expired before he arrived -- death having ensued in forty minutes from the time she stepped upon the train. Her son was awaiting her arrival at the depot here, and when, instead of the living form of his mother, he saw her lifeless remains, lying prostrate before him, he was overcome with anguish - such sorrow as can come to but few in a lifetime. The funeral services were held at the residence of her husband, Mr. William Buchan, two miles east of Hopewell Center, on Saturday last, and an appropriate and feeling discourse was given by Rev. Mr. Blain, of Hopewell Center.

Shortsville, N. Y. -  Myron M. Buck,
one of the most successful of Shortsville's boys, died at his home in Clifton Springs on Friday morning, after a long and painful illness, at the age of 63 years. He was born in Shortsville in 1833, being a son of the late Addison and Sabrina Short Buck, and a grandson of Theophilus Short, the founder of Shortsville. His early life was passed in his birthplace on a farm now known as the Booth farm in Canandaigua street, which was then the property of Theophilus Short. The house in which Mr. Buck was born still stands, it now being the Booth tenant house, though a portion of it was moved many years ago to the Sharon Booth farm, west of this village. When thirteen years of age he went to Canada and made his home with his brother, A. Cuyler Buck, then a resident of Brantford, Canada. There he learned the trade of the tinsmith and remained until he was twenty-three, when he went to Chicago, and about six years later settled in St. Louis. In that city he began the manufacturing of lanterns, at first on a very small scale in a small one-story building which is still standing, and of which he was always very proud. This small beginning developed into one of the largest concerns of the United States, manufacturing all kinds of railroad supplies. Mr. Buck invented a head light that was used by many western roads. For many years past Mr. Buck has spent the summers in his Clifton Springs residence and the winters in his St. Louis home, and always retained a deep interest in Shortsville and vicinity and several years ago, he gave to this village the M. M. Buck Free Library.

His first wife was Miss Clara Whitney, daughter of Captain Whitney of Hopewell, who died leaving a young daughter; and about 27 years ago he married Miss Velma Sawyer of Orleans, who survives him. He is also survived by a grandson, Myron Horton. Mr. O. C. Buck of Grove street is his nephew. The funeral was held from his late home in Clifton Springs at two o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. H. L. Dorchester, pastor of the Linwood Avenue Methodist Episcopal church, St. Louis, of which he was a prominent member and an elder. Interment was in Brookside Cemetery, Shortsville.

Honeoye, N. Y.
- On Christmas day at her home in this village, occurred the death of Mrs. Melvina Buckelew after a long, painful illness. She had been in poor health for the past 20 years, but about two months ago, she suffered an apoplectic stroke and since that time her suffering has been intense, and her death was hourly expected. During this time she had, with the assistance of a nurse, been tenderly cared for by her only sister, with whom she lived. Melvina Kingsbury Buckelew was born in the town of Bristol, 61 years ago. She was the daughter of Hampton and Lynda Totman Kingsbury, and with the exception of the past eight years residence at Honeoye, had lived her life in that town. At the age of 18 years, she was married to Spafford Buckelew, whose death occurred four years ago. To them, four children were born, all of whom died in infancy. She is survived by two brothers, Sherman Kingsbury of Canandaigua; and Addison Kingsbury of Jersey City, N. J., and one sister, Mrs. Lucretia Briggs, of this village. The funeral was held from her late home, Rev. Dr. A. C. Dill officiating. The casket was covered with flowers. Beautiful music was rendered by Ira N. Deyo and Mrs. Helen M. Lawrence, with Prof. F. B. Short, organist.  The interment was in Woodlawn.

GORHAM - Richard M. Buckelew, another one of our old and respected citizens, died at his late residence Saturday morning, the 28th inst.  Funeral services were held at the Baptist church Monday afternoon, the Rev. F. E. Arnold assisted by the Rev. H. T. Giles, officiating.  Many sympathizing friends and neighbors were in attendance.  Messrs. Elias Newman, Wm. Hankinson, James Secor, Lebbeus Phillips, H. E. Johnson, and Jonathan Phillips officiated as pall bearers.

The following was handed us by the pastor:  "The deceased was born in Monmouth Co. N. J., Dec. 1st, 1793.  In 1832 he removed thence to this town and settled with his family.  Ten or twelve years later he united with the Gorham and Middlesex Baptist church, of which he was a member at his death.  Through the infirmities of age and especially the almost entire loss of hearing, he has to a great extent been deprived of the privilege of attending public worship."  As the pastor truly remarked, "he had lived a spotless and blameless life."  An aged widow and five sons survive him.

Mr. Abraham Buckholder
died at his residence in the town of Seneca, near Flint Creek, on Monday, May 24th in the 83d year of his age. During the nine months of his illness, resulting from a shock of paralysis, all that an affectionate consort and the most devoted filial care and attention of sons and daughters, and two of the most skillful physicians in Ontario, Doctors Potter and Balh, could do to minister relief, was most assiduously tendered. Mr. Buckholder emigrated from Pennsylvania near the close of the last century, and may therefore be styled one of the most enterprising of the early pioneers of Western New York,  and has reared a very respectable family, who have by laudable industry become opulent and wealthy. The writer of this has been intimately acquainted with Mr. B. over half a century, and he can truly say the chain of friendship has ever been kept bright between them. The funeral ceremonies were attended by a very large concourse of friends and relatives, at the Methodist Episcopal  Church; and the sermon by the Rev. Mr. Coats was most excellent and very appropriate.

From Geneva Daily Times 22 November 1909

The body of Michael Buckley of West street, who disappeared from home last Thursday, was found in Seneca lake at a point near the plant of the Herendeen Manufacturing Company yesterday morning. The search for Mr. Buckley which was begun when he failed to return home Thursday night was continued on Friday and Saturday and when no trace of him could be found, it was decided to drag the harbor. The work was begun yesterday under the direction of Coroner Flint and had proceeded to a point a hundred yards or so south of Castle street when the body was discovered. There were no marks upon it and death evidently had been accidental. A son of Mr. Buckley who was watching the work of dragging from the towpath, collapsed when the body was discovered and it was nearly an hour before he recovered. As soon as the body was removed from the water it was taken to the undertaking rooms of Devaney and Fletcher and late yesterday the remains were removed to the Buckley home at 29 West street.

The last seen of Mr. Buckley alive was on Thursday evening when he was seen walking down Exchange street by Officer McNerney. It is said that Mr. Buckley was temperate in his habits and when seen by Officer McNerney there was nothing unusual either in his appearance or actions so that it was only after Mr. Buckley was reported missing that the officer recalled seeing him at all. While Coroner Flint will hold an inquest this afternoon to determine the facts in the case, the supposition is that Mr. Buckley became bewildered and walked to the lake front and then accidentally walked off the dock late at night. Some burdock burs found in his clothing would indicate that he walked down one of the alley ways leading from Exchange street. No money or papers were found upon the body. Mr. Buckley's watch had, however, stopped at 4:20 o'clock.

He is survived by his wife, four daughters, Mrs. John S. Harding, Mrs. Charles Caton and Catherine and Mary; three sons, Thomas, Joseph, and William Buckley; three brothers, Jeremiah, Daniel and Maurice Buckley, and two sisters, Mrs. John Diviney, of this city, and Mrs. E. Maney of Seneca Castle.

Affliction came heavily to the family and friends of Mrs. Alice Amelia Buell, wife of Arthur Buell, when her spirit was called away at 6 o'clock Monday morning. For nearly two years Mrs. Buell had been a patient sufferer, but during the past few weeks, her condition had caused the gravest concern to all. The immediate cause of death was tubercular meningitis. At the time of her death Mrs. Buell had reached the age of 34 years. She was a member of the Congregational church of this town. Always a devoted wife and mother, her presence in the home she had helped to build will be indeed sadly missed as it will be in the community as a whole where she had many true friends. At the sorrow-stricken homestead, besides the widowed husband, there are three children, two girls and one boy, the oldest ten and the youngest barely five years old, left without a mother's loving care. The mother of the deceased, Mrs. Lucy Wheeler, also resides at the homestead. Mrs. Buell also leaves four brothers, Heber E. Wheeler, Dr. S. R.
