The many friends of Willis E.

Yesterday morning he went as usual to his barber shop on Castle street but in the afternoon he remained home. Shortly after 2:30 he was taken violently ill. Dr. H. J.

Mr. LaBuff was 50 years old and was born in Dexterville, Oswego county. About five years ago he came to this city and was in the employ of F. E. Stillwell, but for the past three years has conducted a barber shop of his own at No. 153 Castle street. He was a member of Old Castle Lodge, Ontario Encampment, I. O. O.

The death of Hiram Ladd, an aged and highly respected citizen of this village, occurred at his home early Tuesday morning. Mr. Ladd was born in 1823, on the Ladd homestead in the northern part of the town, now occupied by Charles F. Blazey, and had spent his entire life in Victor. In 1866, he sold the place of his birth and purchased of Ansel Perkins a farm just on the western border of this village upon which he has since lived. In 1873 he erected, in a most sightly location, an unusually fine residence and it is the Ladd home which so frequently attracts the attention of strangers in passing through the town by railroad. Mr. Ladd was a farmer by occupation. He was a man of deep convictions and of strict integrity and enjoyed the highest respect and confidence of his townsmen; in his family he was the kindest of husbands and fathers. When the Prohibition party was first organized, Mr. Ladd became prominent in its local councils and in many campaigns he was the nominee of the party for important offices. He is survived by a widow, one son, John M. Ladd of Victor, and four sisters, Mrs. Silas Richardson of Victor; Mrs. Celestia Richardson of Winnebago, Minn.; Mrs. John Hart of Clayton, Mich.; and Mrs. Lanson Woolsey of Adrian, Mich.

Rushville, N. Y. -  Mrs. Rhoda Lafler,
wife of Earl M. Lafler, of the town of Gorham, died Wednesday afternoon, January 10, in a hospital near Oakland, Calif., where she and her husband were visiting their son, Emory Lafler. They left their farm home here on December 1st, the second day of the first big storm of the winter, which has left many of the roads blocked since. Mrs. Lafler had been in poor health for several months and longed to see her two sons in California, whom she had not seen since they left here seven years ago. It was thought that a winter in California might improve her health. She made the trip there quite comfortably but was taken worse on Christmas day and failed to rally.

Lafler, also a lifelong resident of this section, who survives her.

Frank Lagino,
an Italian, 54 years of age, who is employed as a laborer by Mrs. S. K. Nester, met an instant death last night shortly before 12 o'clock, by falling down stairs at his lodgings, No. 38 State street. After pitching backward down the stairs, he struck his head on the tenth step from the top, breaking his neck. From a hurried examination of the facts this morning Coroner George S. Flint is of the opinion that Lagino met his death as a result of an accident, although Mr. Flint will hold an inquest either on Saturday or Monday next to inquire more closely in the case. At the time that the accident occurred Lagino either was about to retire for the night or had been in bed for a short time and had arisen for some purpose. In passing through the hall, he happened to get too near the top of the stairs and pitched headlong down the flight. The stairs in the house are rather steep and descend between two smooth walls. Toward the bottom of the flight there is a sharp turn to the level of the lower hall floor. In falling Lagino hit the first step on the turn and the force of his head striking the step was sufficient to break off the portion of the tread board where it protruded over the riser. The noise caused by his fall was sufficient to arouse the entire household. Leonard Pasafume, who lived in the house and with whom Lagino boarded, rushed to the hall, as also died Lagino's brother, who had retired before him. They carried the body of the man to a couch nearby and at a few minutes before 12 o'clock they telephoned to Dr. C. W. Grove. When the physician arrived at the house, the man was dead and Dr. Grove at once notified Coroner Flint. The Coroner arrived at the house at 12:30 o'clock and was accompanied by Night Captain Merry. Together they made an examination of the house and questioned the occupants as to how the accident occurred. At first they were inclined to believe that there might have been foul play and that possibly Lagino had been pushed down the stairs. But from the attitude of the occupants of the house and all of the circumstances they concluded that Lagino met his death as a result of an accident. After reviewing the remains, Coroner Flint notified the undertaking firm of Kennedy and Kennedy and the body was removed to their undertaking rooms. As it was impossible to secure a connected story of the occurrence from the occupants of the house at the time of his early morning visit, Coroner Flint decided to hold an inquest either on Saturday or Monday, in order that the exact facts may be ascertained.

Walter Laidlaw -
We have referred to the serious illness of Mr. Walter Laidlaw; the disease, or rather the wearing out of his bodily organism at four-score years, culminated in his death last Saturday evening. He was an old-time resident of Geneva where he reared a large family who have become useful and honored men and women. He was a Scot by birth, and evidenced all a Scotchman's tenacity of principle, of purpose and of religion as a "dissenter." He was a faithful member and attendant upon the services of the old Associate Reformed church, so long as it had a place for and maintained public worship, and later on through life was equally constant in religious duties and in identity with another branch of the Church militant. His daily walk and conversation were consistent with his Christian professions. The community mourns him as a good man lost to earth, but realizing that its loss is his eternal gain. Deceased was buried in Glenwood last Thursday afternoon.

The deceased was a soldier in the War of 1812, having been born in New Hampshire, from which State he enlisted and served during the war; and at the breaking out of the Slaveholders' Rebellion and on President Lincoln's first call for troops, he started for Canandaigua on foot, to enlist, and returned saying that they refused men and took boys there. He had many good qualities, being a kind husband and father.

From Victor Herald 9 December 1893

George M. Lane
died at the home of his sister, Helen M. Lane, in Farmington, on Friday last. The funeral was held on Monday; the interment was at Boughton Hill. Mr. Lane was born in Farmington about fifty-eight years ago; his boyhood was spent in that town and his early education was obtained at the old stone school house in Dist. No. 5. He was ambitious to attain to something higher than mere manual labor and by patient, unremitting industry, he succeeded in obtaining an academic education and commenced teaching school in this vicinity at a very early age. His success in this vocation led him to try his fortune in the state of Louisiana where he taught many years and attained a wide reputation as an educator in that state. After several years work in the schools he studied law and was admitted to practice, but he always strove for higher attainments and was admitted to practice in the United States Court where he soon built up a very lucrative practice. He was in the south during the war and experienced many of the trials and hardships incident to those times; although surrounded by rebels and in a measure connected with them in business and social life, he never renounced his allegiance to the stars and stripes which his father gallantly fought to defend in 1812-15. After the war his business increased and overwork brought on several severe attacks of nervous troubles which finally compelled him to give up business and return north to spend his days with his mother and devoted sister. It soon became evident that his nervous system would never recover and for several years he has been gradually failing. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. John Cline who paid a glowing tribute to the talents and attainments of the deceased and the devotion of his sister who has so patiently cared for him during the past few years.

Dr. Hogarth, pastor of the North church, delivered the funeral discourse; and spoke in most appreciative words of the deceased.  A leading thought was that some are prepared earlier than others, for the heavenly home; and that Mrs. Laning was ready.  The words of the pastor was exceeding appropriate and touching.  A choir sang "I would not live alway;" Rev. Dr. Beck offered a fervent prayer; another hymn was sung, and then, after the benediction, the remains were taken to Glenwood cemetery.
