Bristol, N. Y.
- The remains of Henry Gladding were interred here Saturday afternoon, Rev. F. F. Buckner officiating.

From Rochester Democrat & Chronicle 2 June 1893

The community of Bristol Center, a small hamlet about ten miles from Canandaigua, between that village and Naples, were startled yesterday morning to learn of the sudden and tragic death of one of the oldest and best known citizens of that locality, Lafayette Gladding. Mr. Gladding had resided in Bristol Center or that locality for a number of years and was regarded as a man of more than ordinary intelligence and ability. He was engaged in farming and occupied a large tract of land which he cultivated with his two sons, Ebenezer and Sylvester Gladding. He also had one daughter, Alice, who resided with her father and brothers. Mr. Gladding's wife died several years ago, and since that time Mr. Gladding has been seen to act queerly and his sanity has often been questioned. When a few weeks since one of his daughters was taken ill and died, it was apparent that this grief had severely affected Mr. Gladding's mind and he was for some time sick with melancholia and kindred maladies. During this period he often declared his intention of taking his own life, but the threat was not considered seriously by his family. Early yesterday morning, he went to the barn to do some work and did not respond to the breakfast call. A search was made for him and he was found in the barn hanging by the neck. The body was cut down but life had become extinct. There was every indication that Mr. Gladding had carried out his oft-repeated threats to take his own life. The body had evidently been suspended in a cramped position for nearly an hour and a half. The coroner was immediately summoned. Mr. Gladding was 69 years of age, of medium height and muscular build. He was known
all through Ontario County and had been prominently identified with numerous agricultural organizations.

From Geneva Gazette 17 May 1878

In sunshine and in storm, at early morn and far into the late hours of night, the familiar form of this venerable and faithful employee of the New York Central R. R. Company could be seen at his post as switch-tender at the Geneva station. For twenty-seven years he filled this responsible post and but a single accident ever occurred, and that of but a trivial nature, by reason of any mistake or negligence of his, and that one almost broke the old man's heart. It was excused, for well the railroad authorities knew his place could be supplied by a more faithful and reliable man.  A few weeks ago the venerable switchman was taken ill.  It proved a fatal sickness.  He lingered till Tuesday morning, when his spirit was borne away, almost at the same hour with that of his countryman and life-long neighbor, Thomas Nevins. Universally respected, his death will be learned with universal regret.
