Allen G. Frisbie,
69 years of age, a well-known fire insurance and real estate agent of the city, died suddenly at 4:30 o'clock this morning at his home, No. 189 Lewis street. The cause of death was acute heart disease and neither his family nor his physician, Dr. Herbert M. Eddy, knew that his heart was affected until a few hours prior to his death. Mr. Frisbie was about his accustomed duties on Wednesday and in the evening attended the entertainment at the theater. On Thursday morning he was taken with what was considered to be an attack of indigestion and remained in bed during the day. Yesterday he was apparently better, but continued to keep his bed. There was practically no decided change until early this morning when he felt a pain in his left side. His wife left the room for a moment and as she went out she heard a slight noise. Upon returning she found that he was dead. Dr. Eddy was called at once but his only service was to pronounce that his death was caused by acute heart trouble. Mr. Frisbie was born in Westford, Vt., on March 17, 1840. As a young man he enlisted in Company A of the 13th Regiment of Vermont Volunteers on August 22, 1862. On Sept. 11th of the same year he was made a corporal and in this capacity served until the expiration of his enlistment on July 21, 1863. At the end of his military service he returned to Vermont and later lived with his mother at Whitecreek, N. Y.

In February, 1883, he married Julia A. Smith of Geneva, who formerly had resided near his boyhood home. Shortly after his marriage he came to Geneva to reside. For practically the entire time that he has resided here, he has been engaged in the fire insurance and real estate business. He was a member of Old Castle Lodge, No. 299, I. O. O. F., and Swift Post No. 94, G. A. R. During the early part of his residence he was an active member of the First Methodist church, but of later years he became identified with the North Presbyterian church. He is survived by his widow, one brother, A. D. Frisbie of Cambridge, N. Y., and one sister, Mrs. Sarah Mattison of Fort Edward, N. Y. The funeral will take place at 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon from the house. Rev. David H. Craver, pastor of the North Presbyterian church, will officiate, and burial will be made in Glenwood Cemetery.

Naples, N. Y. - Floyd R. Frost
died at his farm home in West Hollow, in this town, at 9 o'clock last Thursday evening, aged 79 years. There was evidently a mysterious chapter in this man's life, which he never revealed, even to those who knew him best. He was born in Westchester county of a refined family, was well educated and a keen business man. For about ten years in his young manhood, he was telegraph operator in a railroad office. Over thirty years ago he came to Naples from Prattsburgh, where relatives reside, and bought a secluded farm of 160 acres, four miles from the village, and had lived there entirely alone all of three years. He had plenty of money, but preferred to live this hermit life. He was generous, took an active interest in improvements, a kind and obliging neighbor and an excellent farmer. He came to town each Saturday as a rule to stock up for the week. During his last illness of some months, he had manifested no desire to be cared for, and had expressed a wish that he might die. He was a great reader and spent all of his resting hours alone with his books and papers. Two sisters, Mrs. S. D. Cook, and Mrs. Peter Parrish, of Prattsburgh, and a brother in the West survive him.

Benedict W. Fuller, Well Known Officer, Dies Suddenly Today

Benedict W. Fuller, 45, well-known patrolman on the city police force, died suddenly this morning of coronary embolism at his home, 226 Gorham street.  Mr. Fuller was apparently improving from a serious illness caused by blood poisoning in his right hand and arm and was removed to his home Thursday from Memorial Hospital, where he had been confined since early in December.

He was born in Canandaigua February 27, 1888.  He was appointed to the police force in 1922, but after serving a few months, he resigned to enter a business partnership.  When this was dissolved he applied for reinstatement and served as special patrolman for night duty, holidays and other special occasions.  Passing the civil service examinations with high marks in 1928, he headed the eligible list for appointment as a regular member of the force, which came on Jan. 1, 1929. According to his associates he was an unusually efficient and tactful officer and served the city well.

Besides his wife, he leaves three sons and four daughters, Albert, Benedict, Robert, Kathryn, Mary, Anna and Rose Eileen, of this city, a sister and three brothers, Mrs. Charles Abert and Augustus Fuller, of Rochester; Albert Fuller, of Colorado, and Thomas Fuller of Canandaigua; also one grandchild.

From Geneva Gazette 4 March 1887

A most distressing accident occurred on Wednesday last by which a little girl less than nine years old lost her life.  By reason of the warm weather of Tuesday and Wednesday morning which melted the snow and ice Castle Creek was quite high; and Little Edith Furman accompanied by her brother, who is a few years older, went out to the bank of the creek in the yard of their parents' home on Castle street to watch the ice go whirling past.  In some manner little Edith slipped and fell into the creek, and before help could be obtained her body had been carried away out of sight.  An alarm was made immediately and men stationed themselves at the mouth of the creek to catch the body as it went by, while the frenzied father, Fred J. Furman, waded up the shore hoping that his daughter might have lodged somewhere along the creek, or that she had been rescued.  By reason of the quantity of floating ice and the muddy condition of the water the body was not discovered as it went by, but it was recovered later in the canal basin.  It was one of the saddest accidents that ever happened in Geneva, and the sorrowing parents have the sympathy of the entire community in their shocking bereavement.  The funeral of the little one will take place tomorrow (Saturday) afternoon, at St. Peter's Church, at half past 2 o'clock.
