Rushville, N. Y. - The death of Benj. Green occurred
on Friday, March 4th, 1887, the result of injuries received about two
weeks before. Mr. Green was greatly respected and is as well known as
any citizen of Gorham and will be greatly missed by his friends and
neighbors. His death is a sad blow to the community. His age was 54
years. The funeral was largely attended at the house on Monday.
From Geneva Courier 10 December 1879
Mrs. Binnie Green, whose death was announced in the Courier, and
whom a large circle of friends mourn,
was born in 1851. At the early age of four years she was left an
orphan. She was adopted by Mr. and Mrs. Cobb, of Phelps, and in
every way treated as if she were a daughter. She won their
affections and the affections of the friends to whom she became
known. She was always careful for the happiness of those who had
adopted her. She was like sunshine in the home. Her
presence was a
delight. She was a favorite with those of her own age -- full of
playfulness in their mirth and of seriousness in their troubles.
She was, however, naturally serious, and never fond of the follies that
are attractive to so many of the young. It may be that early
sorrow shadowed her mind. She was married at the age of 23
years. Her devotion as a wife and mother was
ardent. It lasted through her life. Her greatest desire
for life was that she might train the little one she has left. It
cannot be doubted that she left the impress of her mind and heart
on the child. The gentleness and blended firmness of her
qualified her to be useful at home and in society.
For more than twenty years a vigorous constitution resisted the attacks
of a disease which at last terminated in death. During repeated
illnesses of great severity
she was always patient and cheerful, never depressed on her
own account. Her last sickness was protracted and at
times she suffered greatly. Patient and self-possessed she made
complete arrangements for her own burial. In these
hours of increasing feebleness and of pain she was looking to her
future home. Her trust was in the
.Savior She often said that no darkness obscured the view of
Christ's love. At the very last she said to her physician who told her
she would be in heaven before morning, "I am
so glad." Her end was peace.

Accidental Death - On Saturday morning last, Mr. Charles W.
Green, aged 37 years, was accidentally killed at the depot here in
a peculiar manner. He left his home on Exchange street after
breakfast to go to the
Woodin farm east of Geneva to chop wood, and took the railroad track as
that was his nearest course, and the one which promised the easiest
walking. Just east of the water tank he
stepped from the track to avoid a passenger train towards the Fall
Brook track. At that moment a switch engine on the latter track
came along and the heavy crossbeam struck Green on the head over the
left eye inflicting a terrible wound. He was picked up in
an unconscious condition, carried to
his home and medical aid summoned, but he lived only a few hours.
A widowed mother and sister survive him.

twenty years, a kind husband and father. Burial was made at Baptist
Hill. The bearers were six relatives, Mark H. and Fred Bell, Frank

From Canandaigua Chronicle 7 February 1906
Yesterday at his home in Bristol street in the same house where he
had lived for nearly 52 years, the death occurred of Eli N. Green, one
the oldest inhabitants of the village, he being almost 90 years of
age at the time of his death. Mr. Green was born in Wales, Mass., in
1816 and came to Canandaigua in 1843. He was a shoemaker by trade, and
after coming to Canandaigua, was in the shoe business for a period of
about ten years. Later he purchased a farm in the western part of the
village and also owned a farm on the lake shore. He was a successful
fruit grower and remained in the fruit business for some time.
Afterwards he purchased the house in Bristol street in which his death
occurred and where as stated above, he has lived since the time of its
purchase. In 1854 he was married to Miss Hannah Fields Childs and to
them was born one son, Charles M. Green, who survives. His first wife
died April 22, 1873.
In 1891 he was married to Mrs. Elizabeth Hewitt Brown, who survives
him. In May, 1905, Mr. Green fell from a wagon and sustained a fracture
of the collar bone and on account of his advanced age, the injury was a
serious one from which he never fully recovered. A week ago last Monday
he suffered a paralytic stroke which was at once recognized by the
physicians as fatal, but his wonderful constitution kept him alive
until yesterday, when his death occurred. He is survived by his wife
and one son, Charles M. Green, of this village. Mr. Green was a man of
excellent reputation and sterling character and has always commanded
the respect of his fellow citizens. In his death the village loses one
of its oldest citizens and it is in fact probable that Mr. Green was
the oldest man living in the village since had he survived, he would
have been 90 years of age on July 14th next. The funeral will be held
from his late home Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m., Rev. J. Scott Ebersole
officiating, and interment will be in Woodlawn cemetery.

Mrs. Irene Timmerman Green, wife of Baldwin Green, died at the
family home on Boughton Hill Sunday night, as the result of a stroke of
paralysis which she suffered some five weeks ago, her death having been
almost daily expected since that time. Mrs. Green was eighty-one years
old. She was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Timmerman and was born
in Manheim, Herkimer county, where she married Mr. Green sixty-one
years ago. Their early married life was spent in the eastern part of
the state, but they have been residents of Victor for fully forty
years. Mrs. Green became a member of the Presbyterian church of this
village in 1885, and for many years was a frequent attendant at its
services. She was a quiet home-loving woman, content with the duties of
wife and mother and never seeking prominence in the social life of the
community, though during her long life in Victor many had come to know
and love her. Beside the aged husband, five children survive: one
daughter, Mrs. Charles Bowerman, who resides north of this village;
William of Worcester, Mass., Herman, Clarence and Charles Green, all of
this town. A son, Peter, of Buffalo, died about a year ago. One sister,
Mrs. Carrie Dunkel of Binghamton, N. Y., and a brother, Benjamin F.
Timmerman of this village, also survive. The funeral services were held
at the home Wednesday afternoon at two o'clock, Rev. Frank W. Hill
officiating. Interment in Boughton Hill cemetery.

Allen's Hill, N. Y. - In the death of Isaac B. Green, who
passed away at his home on March 10, the town loses one of its oldest,
best known and most esteemed men. Mr. Green had been failing in health
for some time past and the end was not unexpected. He was born in Rush,
Monroe county, in 1837, and he had resided for nearly 60 years in the
town of Richmond. On March 2, 1871, he married Miss Margery A. Reed, of
this town, who with three sons, John R., Frank L. and Isaac M.,
survive. Mr. Green was a veteran of the Civil war, enlisting in 1862 in
Company C, Fourth N. Y. heavy artillery. He served until 1865, when he
was mustered out. At the close of the war, he re-engaged in farming and
in this line he had been successful and accumulated a valuable
property. He was a careful observer of the best ways and means of
conducting a farm and studied the subject thoroughly. He was for many
years an extensive hop grower. In politics Mr. Green was a staunch
Republican. He and his family attended the Methodist church here and he
was its generous supporter. He will be missed, as he was a kind and
obliging neighbor, a loving husband and father, and his tender
solicitude for his family, to whom his life had been devoted, makes the
blow hard to bear. The funeral was held at his late home on Friday,
Rev. J. G. Hann officiating. The interment was in Lake View Cemetery at
Honeoye. D. O. Pierpont, R. B. Simmons, B. F. Phillips and H. G. Ogden
acted as bearers.

Sudden Death of James Green - Mr. James Green, an old and
respected resident of Geneva, died on
Monday morning. He had but a few moments before come into the
house, and appeared in his usual health.
He laid down upon a lounge and complained of feeling great pain.
Before any help could be summoned he was dead.
He had been a sufferer several years from rheumatism, and death
probably resulted from rheumatism of the heart. Mr. Green was
a man of a quiet and pleasant disposition, and had many friends and no
enemies. He leaves a wife and five children, the youngest about
twelve years old.
He was about 67 years of age. He was possessed of considerable
property, owning houses on Exchange, Castle and Geneva streets, and
residences in other parts of the village. Some years ago
he followed the occupation of a butcher, and did a large business, but
of late years he has not engaged in any vocation.
Mr. Green was born in County Clare, Ireland, and came to this country
in 1836, and settled in Brooklyn. Tiring of the city in 1840, he
removed to this village and has lived here continuously up to the time
of his death. The funeral will take place from the church of St.
Francis DeSales on Thursday morning at 10 o'clock.

Died All Alone ! - Mrs. John Green, an aged widow, lived all
alone in her little home, corner of Colt and North Main streets.
She was daily about her premises up to and including Monday last.
Tuesday passed as also the forenoon of Wednesday, when neighbors
suddenly became conscious of the fact that 48 hours had elapsed since
she had been seen. This led to an investigation. Every door
was found securely closed. A window of her bedroom facing Colt
street was eventually raised a trifle, the curtains pushed aside, and
the venerable woman discovered in calm and unconscious repose upon her
bed. Entrance by a doorway was speedily effected, and the startling
fact revealed that Death had been a visitor there long before, from
twenty-four to thirty-six hours.
The husband of the deceased was Mr. John Green, the oldest of five
brothers, all active and well known citizens of our village, the others
being James, Daniel, Thos. and Patrick, all long since passed
away. She had three children, two sons and one daughter, all of
whom fell victims of consumption soon after reaching adult age.
Altho' bereaved of all of her family, yet the lonely widow never
abandoned her home, not took others to share its humble but comfortable
shelter. She exchanged frequent visits with her many neighbors,
by all of whom as well as by all acquaintances she was held in high
esteem. She lived and died a faithful, devout Catholic. The
last sad offices of her church in a requiem mass will be said over her
inanimate remains today. How we will miss her cheery salutation as from

Honeoye, N. Y. - Dr. Lewis E. Green died at Brigham Hall,
Canandaigua, on Saturday, May 1, at 5:30 p.m., aged nearly 46 years.
Two years ago this present month, it was considered necessary to place
him under restraint. Since then his health has been gradually failing
until the end came. Dr. Green was born in South Dansville, Livingston
county, on June 12, 1851. Of a family of 10 children, five brothers and
the only sister survive. In the spring of '75, he located in Honeoye,
and on February 9, '87, was married to Miss Carrie E. Pierpont of this
town. The funeral services were held from the Congregational church on
Tuesday, May 4, at 1:30 p.m., Rev. L. H. Squires of Rochester
officiating, assisted by Rev. Mr. Day, with interment in Lake View
cemetery. His widow and little son, five years of age, are all that are
left of his immediate family. Dr. Green, when in health, had a large
and extended practice. He was a Democrat in politics, had served one
term as postmaster, and was one of the most independent of men. It was
a cause of universal regret when, two or three years ago, friends and
acquaintances were forced to acknowledge that Dr. Green could no longer
be considered accountable. The kindest and most attentive care had been
given him until the summons came to "banquet with the King."

the report of a gun, which came from another part of the house. She had
left her husband at the breakfast table and when she went to that room
and found it empty, she searched further and discovered his dead body
in a closet that opened off the room. His head was almost severed from
his body by an ugly gunshot wound in the neck, the still smoking gun
lying nearby. Coroner Wilkans, who was called, concluded that Green had
entered the closet, rested the gun on the floor, placed the right side
of his neck over the muzzle and pulled the trigger. His neck had been
broken and almost shot away. Green had been very despondent of late. He
was about 50 years of age. Besides his widow, he leaves a 7-year-old

shock. He continued conscious until Monday afternoon, when he commenced

From Geneva Advertiser 13 August 1901
Mrs. Samaria Nellis Gregory, widow of the late Charles P. Gregory,
died at her home on High St., Sunday morning, Aug. 4 of Bright's
disease, aged 65 years. She was the daughter of the late John D.
and Samantha Stanton Nellis of Naples, N.
Y. Her aged mother survives her, and also a brother, J.
Warren Nellis, a well-known resident of Naples. It was a source
of much gratification to that mother to be able, at the age of nearly
92 years, to spend a little time with this only daughter and to soothe
her last hours. Mrs. Gregory had not been in good health for
several years, but it was hoped that she might be spared to the only
daughter for at least a few happy years together in their new home in
this city, they having left the farm in April last. This second
bereavement -- but a little more than a year since the death of her
father, comes with all the more force to the daughter, Miss Frances,
thus left entirely alone. For Mrs. Gregory was as faithful,
loving and sympathizing a mother as she was a wife. Her whole
life was given up to the welfare of those she loved, and much of her
husband's success in life was due to her wise and
helpful and hearty cooperation in his plans.
Early in life she joined the Methodist Church in Naples and was an
active worker in the society until her marriage and removal to Seneca.
There she became a member of the Presb. Church at No. 9.
She quietly and faithfully tried to do her duty in
God's sight, and at the last expressed herself as ready to go
up higher. The funeral was held at 60 High St. on Tuesday
afternoon, Reverend Mr. Weller and Rev. Mr. Temple, her old pastor
officiating. The beautiful floral tributes and the presence of
many old and new friends testified to the respect in which she
was held. She was laid to rest in Glenwood as was her request,
and the remains of Mr. Gregory will be brought back here from Naples,
and laid beside her. They lived and worked together, and
in their death were not long separated.
In so short a time has one of the old homes of Seneca changed, and the
farm known for a century as the Gregory farm, and so greatly improved
and cared for by their hands must pass into the
possession of strangers. Fortunate those who obtain
it, and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

Naples, N. Y. - Paul Greiner, a young German, 18 years old, was
instantly killed on Wednesday, March 7, while felling trees in the
woods. A large sapling bent down by a falling tree, flew back with such
force as to break a limb from the falling tree and hurl it with
tremendous force through the air. It struck the young man on the head
crushing the skull. He lived but a few moments. His uncle, Charles
Greiner, who stood near
him was uninjured. This young man left his parents in the old country
fall, intending to make a home for them here. He was remarkably fine
and intelligent. It is a most lamentable affair.
