Byron McMaster,
aged about 50 years, and James DuBois, Jr., aged about 38 years, who resided on the shores of Canandaigua lake, were drowned in the lake yesterday afternoon while on a fishing trip. The men left their homes about 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon and went out upon the lake to fish. About 7 o'clock last evening, L. C. Adams, who resides about three miles up the east shore of the lake, heard cries for help. He and his son went to the shore immediately and saw two men clinging to an upturned boat at a point near the middle of the lake, about half a mile from shore. The men at the time were struggling to right the boat and climb into it, but were evidently meeting with but little success. Adams got out his own boat and started to the rescue. His boat was leaking badly, however, and he was obliged to return for another. When he was ready to go out again it was quite dark and the cries of the men had ceased. When Mr. Adams reached the middle of the lake everything was still and no trace could be found either of the men or the boat. The facts in the case were telephoned to Canandaigua and Adams and other neighbors continued the search through the night without results. This morning a larger searching party was organized under the direction of Coroner Warner and about thirty boats spent the morning on the lake dragging for the bodies. Up until noon no trace of the men had been found. The boat occupied by them was found on the shore at the foot of the lake. The boat contained the cap of one of the men and a whitefish. It had evidently been overturned but was right side up when found. The lake was very rough at the time the accident happened and the boat had drifted in to shore during the night. At the place where the drowning occurred the water is not very deep and it is expected that both bodies will be recovered. McMaster is survived by his widow, two sons and one daughter. DuBois is survived by his widow and one son three years of age.

Yesterday forenoon, George McOmber, a painter by trade, and Dr. Lawrence, both of this village, went out upon the lake to enjoy a day's recreation in fishing. When nearly opposite the school house, just below the "Evergreen" on the east side of the lake, a heavy squall arose, and the parties tried to row to the shore. In attempting to hoist an anchor, both were thrown into the water by the overturning of the boat. Dr. Lawrence being a good swimmer sustained himself and reached the shore. McOmber, who is said could not swim, and, judging from an ugly bruise upon the right side of the neck, was partially stunned and sunk immediately.

Alexander McPherson
died at his residence in Seneca Saturday afternoon last, of paralysis -- aged about 72 years.  Symptoms of the disease which resulted in his death were manifest two or three years ago, but its progress has been stayed for so long by precautionary measures, by strict habits of life and diet, on the part of the invalid.  A short time before the end he took a journey to Pennsylvania, and it was while en route home that he suffered a severe relapse, making it necessary to stop over at two or three points to recover partially at least his vital powers.  Reaching home at last, the end was not long deferred, although all that medical skill and tender care could bestow were employed in his behalf.  It was our privilege to know the deceased quite well for a period of forty years, during which he has been an honored patron of the Gazette.  He was ever the same kind, considerate, genial, faithful friend, affectionate and beloved in his household, esteemed by all his townsmen.  His death creates a void in the community which will be sensibly felt.

From Geneva Courier 17 February 1875

Suicide - Last week Monday morning, John S. McPherson, better known as Sanders McPherson, son of Alexander McPherson, left his father's home in Seneca to visit his family at Oaks Corners.  On Wednesday forenoon of last week two men and a boy discovered a man lying in the woods near the town line of Torrey and Benton, with his throat cut and his hands and feet badly frozen.  He was, however, still alive and was at once removed to the house of Mrs. Marlow where medical aid and the best of care were given him, but the long exposure to the intense cold and the wound and bleeding which had weakened him proved too much for him and as evening came on he breathed his last.

An examination of the person of the unfortunate man resulted in the finding of paper upon him indicating his name and as consciousness returned to him he was able by signs to reply to questions. It seems that for some years or more past he had not lived with his family on account of some family troubles and that he either had been or imagined himself to have been wronged, brooding over which he at times was temporarily insane. In one of these despondent fits, coming on after he started to go to his family, he wandered off and strove to end his troubles by ending his life. His knife was found open at the place where he had used it some fourteen rods from where he was found, he having crawled this distance afterwards. Messrs. G. W. Cone and Alexander Park of Seneca went as soon as notified to the place where McPherson was, but life was extinct before they reached his bedside.  A jury was summoned and a verdict rendered in accordance with the above facts. The funeral took place at No. 9 Church, Seneca, on Monday, and the remains were taken to Oak's Corners for burial. We are under obligation to Mr. G. W. Cone for the above statement.
