From Shortsville Enterprise 7 Apr 1894

We are again called upon to mourn the loss of a dear friend and neighbor, but in the death of Hannah Hoag, we feel that our loss is her gain, for as was remarked, she went to sleep and awoke with the angels. To her it was but changing her earthly home for a heavenly one, for to go and be with her Savior had long been her chief desire. She was always cheerful and hopeful, thoughtful for the comfort of others, never thinking of herself. Although a great sufferer during the last few days of her life, she bore it all with great fortitude, fully sustained by a Savior's recognized love. The deceased was aged 92 years, but nevertheless, she was remarkably active, retaining all her faculties. She could read without the aid of glasses and was never without her knitting. She was able to assist in all the household duties, up to the morning of her final illness; and although sick but a few days, she retained her mental faculties until within a few hours of her death. (a few lines cut out) ... giving loving counsel and advice to all her family; while to others she left loving messages, telling them " to mind the little things". Hannah Hoag was born in New Baltimore, Greene Co., in the year 1801; was married to Burling HOAG in 1822; and has resided in the town of Farmington about 40 years since, and for a few years before her husband's death, she had resided with her daughter, Mrs. Nathan Redfield, at whose home she passed away. She is survived by a son, Benjamin Hoag of Colorado, and three daughters, Mrs. E. P. Mead of Livonia; Mrs. Nathan Redfield of Farmington; Mrs. P. Markham of Michigan; also two sisters.

an old and respected citizen of Rushville, came to a sudden death on Saturday last.

East Bloomfield, N. Y. - Mr. Hiram Holcomb
died at his residence last Monday evening at about seven o'clock. He was injured by a fall just one week before he died, while coming from the barn to the house, caused by an Alderney calf which was hitched across the path suddenly becoming frightened, and he was thrown to the ground by the rope with which it was hitched. The left limb was fractured just below the hip and the hip dislocated, and it was thought he was injured internally, the latter of which caused his death. His friends had much hope for his recovery until Sunday, when he began to grow worse. He was past eighty years of age and in comparatively good health until the time of the accident. Mr. Holcomb came to East Bloomfield twenty-one years ago, from Watertown, where he was actively engaged in buying wool, and was interested in other large business enterprises. On coming here he bought a large tract of land at the Station, at which time there were but one or two buildings here besides the depot, made improvements and erected several dwelling houses and stores, and sold off many small lots which have since been built upon and improved. The deceased was widely known in other parts of the State, and had many intimate friends distinguished for their abilities and exalted positions in public life, among whom were Judge Mullin of Watertown, and Judge Merwin of Utica; and in his younger days he was an intimate friend of ex-Senator Conkling and Horace Greeley. He was a man of great liberality and public spirit, and was always ready with an open purse and willing hand to aid the public welfare whenever an opportunity offered, and especially to benefit the town in which he lived. He was a devout Christian, and contributed largely to the Episcopal church, of which he was a communicant. In private life he was generous to a fault, and had an extensive circle of friends and acquaintances, both rich and poor, who admired him for the sterling qualities, purity of character and philanthropy, and no one knew the deceased but to speak well of him. He retained his mental faculties in a full and vigorous condition until the day of his death. Funeral services were held at the residence last Wednesday afternoon at five o'clock, and the remains were taken to Watertown for burial on the following morning. Rev. J. Cooper of this town, and Rev. Dr. Rankin of Geneva officiated.

Naples, N. Y. -
The tragedy of the week is the suicide of August Holl, a German of about 35 years, who came from New York City two years ago to work in the R. F. Meyer meat market. He was an expert and though quiet, became very popular. He was hearty and strong and of good habits. Last fall he went back to New York and spent the winter, coming back in April. Nothing unusual in his demeanor had been noticed except that he seem troubled a little over a love affair with a girl in New York, but spoke of it only to one or two. He went on Monday afternoon to the slaughter house to kill a calf. In less than half an hour he was found there lying dead on the floor by Albert Meyer, who had gone to help him. He had a bullet hole in his forehead and lay in his own blood. The calf lay near him dead with a bullet hold in its head and the skin had been taken partly off the head. It was noticeable that Holl had placed the revolver in exactly the same place as that where he had shot the calf. The coroner did not deem it necessary to hold an inquest. So far it has been impossible to get into communication with any one who knew the young man. He has brothers in this country and was also an Odd Fellow. Burial was in Naples.

Canandaigua, N. Y. -
Death in a terrible form came to Mrs. James Holland when she attempted to flag a fast limited Rochester & Eastern electric car east of this village, at what is called Spangle street crossing, yesterday afternoon. Mrs. Holland was intending to come to Canandaigua to attend the funeral of Mrs. Hiram Depue, whom she had known for a great many years. Accompanied by a young woman, Mrs. Holland left her home on Spangle street, a country road in the town of Hopewell, and proceeded to the electric road crossing of Spangle street, with the intention of flagging the westbound Rochester & Eastern car due at that point about 1 o'clock. Either Mrs. Holland did not know that the car had been changed to a limited car or else she thought the limited car would stop and pick her up in the same manner that the regular cars do, so she flagged it in the usual manner. Mrs. Holland then started to cross the track ahead of the rapidly approaching train with the result that the car struck her, throwing her to one side, and, probably killing her instantly. The car was stopped, and Motorman Thomas Pitchard and Conductor Henry Gardner, who were in charge, ran to the woman's assistance, but, so far as they could ascertain, she was dead before they reached her. The car proceeded to Canandaigua and the coroner was notified, the body of Mrs. Holland remaining by the side of the road.

Mrs. Holland was quite near-sighted, it is said, and it is possible that she did not realize how rapidly the car was approaching when she started to cross the track. The deceased's maiden name was Caroline Ashley, and, besides her husband, James Holland, she leaves a brother, Charles Ashley, who resides at Hopewell Center, and several nephews and nieces at Geneva.

Phelps, N. Y. - Edward H. Holmes
of Oaks Corners died Saturday night at the hospital at Canandaigua, where he was taken a few days ago for treatment. His death resulted from ailments incident to his advanced years. Mr. Holmes was 82 years of age. He was born at Kinderhook, in the eastern section of the state, and when a young man came to this vicinity, where he obtained employment with the New York Central Railroad Company. Nearly half a century ago he assumed the agency for the company at Oaks Corners, which position he held continuously until six years ago when he retired from active work. Upon his retirement from the company, in recognition of his long and faithful service, granted him a pension. Whenever recalling events connected with his early railroad career, Mr. Holmes would invariably speak of the circumstances that took him to Oaks Corners. According to his story, he was sent there one day soon after becoming associated with the railroad company to relieve the station agent for a week or ten days. The station agent never came back to his position, so in absence of further instructions from his superior officers, Mr. Holmes assumed the agency and retained it for more than forty years. Since the death of his wife, several years ago, Mr. Holmes had lived alone, attending to his own household work, notwithstanding his advanced years. He leaves no immediate relatives except a grandson, Frank Gregg of Auburn.

Death in the Highway at Gorham -
They picked the frail body from the cold ground and hastily summoned the physician, who said, upon examination, "she is dead." Thus passed away in the streets of Gorham village Mrs. Electa Hontone, aged about 70 years. Hard indeed must be that heart which is not shocked at the sudden stroke. Death under any circumstance is a fearful thing when it takes from us our beloved ones, but when it comes to us on the streets, suddenly and without warning, as in the case mentioned, it sends a thrill of sorrow and of gloom through the community. It is well for us to consider that she was our neighbor, although her pilgrimage was rough, although her pathway was not strewn with flowers, although her bed was not with rich; still she was of kindly feelings and possessed of a heart which felt for others' woes. Her life was a stormy one. She was born in the State of Vermont, and moving with her husband to Canada, was left a widow with a young family, and obliged to deny herself almost the necessaries of life. To her the prospect was indeed gloomy; and yet she did not despair, although at times nature succumbed to the strain. After her children grew to manhood, they emigrated to our State, and she followed them and was living at the time of her death with her daughter in Gorham. The rich have no bands in their death, but the poor--how hard to spare from their needs enough to bury their dead. The writer was well-acquainted with the deceased; she was of kindly heart, and although poor in this world's goods, she deserves this tribute to her memory.

Probably Suicide in Phelps -

An inquest followed conducted by Dr. Connelly of Clifton Springs, assistant coroner.

From Ontario County Journal 9 June 1899

Phelps, N. Y. -
This place was greatly shocked last Tuesday afternoon when it was reported on the street that Spencer Hooper, a well-known citizen and farmer, had shot himself. The circumstances of the case are as follows: the deceased, who had purchased the Frank Vosburg farm which adjoins the D. S. Crittenden farm, about three miles south of the village, was at work as usual on the day of the shooting. He, with others, had been engaged in working on the road in the forenoon drawing gravel, he working until about 11 o'clock. About that time he took his shot gun, remarking that he was going down to the corn lot to shoot crows which were pulling his corn. Nothing more was seen of him, and as he did not return at the dinner hour his younger son, Robert, went to look for him. After searching for some time he found him lying on his back along side of a fence, dead, with a gunshot wound in his breast, from which the blood was flowing. A fresh cut stick about a yard in length was found by his side which would indicate that he had used it in firing off the gun, which was a hammerless one. The charge entered the region of the heart and death must have been instantaneous. Dr. Vanderhoof was called but could do nothing. No motive for the rash act can be given by the family, excepting that he was of a very nervous disposition and he had brooded more or less for the past year on account of sickness in his family. He was only 50 years of age and leaves, besides a wife, two sons, Thaddeus and Robert. Coroner Archer of Clifton Springs took charge of the remains.

From Geneva Gazette 5 January 1877

It becomes our painful duty to announce the death of Mr. John Hopgood which occurred early last Wednesday morning -- aged about 64 years.  The event has been looked for from day to day for several weeks past. He was afflicted with dropsy with a tendency of the disease to the heart, and it was but too apparent that when that vital organ should be attacked the end was at hand.  Few business men in our community were better know or more deservedly respected.  For 35 or 40 years he carried on the blacksmithing business, corner of Washington and Pulteney sts. and from early morn to late at night was heard the cheerful ring of his anvil.  Industry brought its sure reward.  As constant as at labor of week days was his attendance on Church worship on the Sabbath.  Whoever else's pew might be vacant, his was occupied when not debarred by illness. And it may truly be said of him that in all the relations of life he illustrated the character of "God's noblest work -- an honest man."

MRS. S. W. HOPKINS - Died at her residence on Genesee street Sunday night last after a painful illness of several months.  In her death the North Church loses one of its most zealous and useful members, and the community a bright exemplar of all that is good and noble in womanly character.  We find the following sketch of deceased contributed to the Rochester Union:

Mrs. Catherine L. Foster Hopkins was the eldest of four daughters of the late Rev. Amos Foster, and was born at Carrington, N. Y., September 8 1844.  Her father was at that time a successful Presbyterian pastor of the town.  From there the family removed to East Charlemont, Mass., where Mr. Foster continued his pastoral duties until 1870, when on a visit to his daughter, the wife of Rev. E. S. Kelsey, who then resided on Genesee street, Geneva, he died.  In 1855 Miss Foster was married to S. W. Hopkins of Northampton, Mass., and in 1871 removed with him to Geneva, and although almost all the time she was in poor health, yet she was a most successful church worker.  For two or three years a class of young men and women met at her home weekly on winter evenings for reading and instruction in art.  Her latest Christian work was with a class of ten young ladies of the North Presbyterian Church Sunday School who met weekly and sewed for the benefit of missions, and each year a fair for the sale of these articles made by them was held at her house, and the proceeds wee sent to some mission where they would do the most good.  Mrs. Hopkins will be greatly missed and especially by the young people of the North Presbyterian Church.  The remains of Mrs. Hopkins were conveyed to Cambridge, Mass., her former home, for interment.
