Naples, N.  Y. -
The death of Mrs. Elizabeth Parr occurred Friday, April 28. A stroke of paralysis Thursday morning was followed by another the morning of her death. She was 60 years old, the widow of John Parr, one of the pioneer grape growers of the town. She had a fine home on her vineyard on Mt.

From Ontario County Journal 17 November 1882

A Naples correspondent of the Rochester Post-Express wrote, November 9th, that while George Parr, a young man of that village, was eating dinner at the house of his employer, James Covel, he took from a closet a bottle labeled Plantation Bitters, and drank at least a wine-glassful of the mixture it contained. He immediately began to feel ill, and went to Dr. Gallagher, taking the bottle with him. The doctors soon found that the solution was composed of sugar of lead and laudanum, and it was afterward learned that it was used as a horse liniment. Everything that could be done was resorted to to save the young man's life, but without avail; he died in two hours.

Naples, N. Y. - Edwin R. Parrish
fell to the floor on Tuesday evening, as he was retiring, and in a few moments was dead. He had been feeble for a year or two, but was never confined to his bed. Mr. Parrish was a prominent citizen, one of the largest farmers in this region. He had lived all of his 80 years on the one farm on which his father, Jeremiah B. Parrish, lived in the early days of the town. It is now called Glenloch farm, and consists of about 1200 acres of fine land. He gave over a large portion of it to his son, Schuyler, Jr., some years ago, but had never lost interest in the management. He was an industrious worker. The death of this son, six years ago, again threw the burden care upon him. He had made his home since then with the family of the son. One son, W. Scott Parrish, of Canandaigua, and one daughter, Mrs. Thomas H. Williams of California, survive him; also one brother, William W. Parrish of Momence, Ill.

From Geneva Gazette 27 July 1836

DIED in Canandaigua, on the 13th inst., Jasper Parrish, Esq., aged 69.  The early life of Capt. Parrish was marked by incidents that gave interest to his character.  He was born at Windham, Conn. in March, 1767, and while a child emigrated with his parents to the Lackawaxen, Luzerne county, Penn.  In 1778, at the age of 11 years, when the British and Indians, led on by those ruthless chiefs, Butler and Brandt, were waging an unrelenting warfare upon the peaceful inhabitants of the Wyoming Valley, he was made a prisoner by the party of Delawares, who had, a few days previous, committed the atrocious "Massacre of Wyoming."  He remained a captive among the Indians seven years, during which time he was transferred from one tribe to another of the Six Nations, suffering privations incident to Indian life.  He was released from captivity at Fort Stanwix, (now Rome) under the treaty of 1784.  He had acquired, and could speak fluently, five different languages of these tribes, which enabled him to be useful in our subsequent intercourse with them, and he possessed, moreover, much of their confidence.  Under Washington's administration, he was appointed Interpreter to the Six Nations, and afterward sub-agent; both of which offices he held more than thirty years, and until Jackson's administration.  He was an early settler in Canandaigua, having resided here since 1792; and he well sustained the relations of husband, father and citizen.

From Ontario County Journal 15 July 1892

Naples, N. Y. -
The sudden death of Schuyler J. Parrish on Wednesday morning was a great shock to the town. He had been very active as usual up to the Thursday night before, and was not thought to be dangerously ill. He died of a malarial fever developing into typhoid, induced by exposure and overwork. He had not been a strong man for years but no one would have suspected any infirmity, for he was probably the busiest man in town. His loss is far reaching, as he had so many business and family interests. While successfully managing a very productive farm of 1300 acres, he at the same time speculated largely in wool and stock, always finding time, however, to attend to the social and domestic interests of life. He was always cheerful, warm-hearted, kind to those in affliction, very fond of his family, and sparing no means to give them the advantages of education and travel. What the great loss of his death at this time will be to the beloved wife and five children can hardly be realized -- and also the Presbyterian church and society, of which he was a loyal member. He had been very active in promoting the interests of the Middlesex Valley R. R. and was hoping to receive great benefit therefrom, especially as a shipper of stock to New York. He was to have a station on his farm, and intended to make a market there. He was stricken down in the very midst of his life work, not having yet reached the age of fifty. He was the only surviving brother of W. Scott Parrish, of Canandaigua. A sister, Mrs. T. H. Williams, lives in Washington, D. C. His wife is the only daughter of the late Joseph Conaughty, of this village.

Canandaigua, N. Y. -
The entire population of Canandaigua regret to learn tonight of the death yesterday afternoon of one of Canandaigua's most popular citizens, Charles Parshall. Mr. Parshall died at the General Hospital at Buffalo, where he underwent an operation ten days ago, for an acute stomach trouble, from which he has suffered for several years. Mr. Parshall had a similar operation about two years ago from which he partly recovered, but of late has been gradually growing worse. His condition became so weakened that he never recovered sufficiently to be able to retain nourishment. The operation was performed by Dr. Parks of Buffalo. Mr. Parshall was about sixty years of age, and was born at Cheshire, a few miles from this village, in the town of Canandaigua. He had resided in Canandaigua the past few years. He was one of the sheriffs and was a familiar figure in the Ontario County court for the past forty years. Although he lost an arm quite early in life, he was one of the bravest men ever holding a similar position in the county and had assisted in the capture of some exceedingly dangerous characters. The remains will be brought to Canandaigua today for burial. The survivors are his wife, one son, Belmont Parshall, and a granddaughter, all of this village; and five brothers and sisters, Harvey Parshall of Cleveland, O., Gideon Parshall of Erie, Pa., Samuel Parshall of Shortsville, and Mrs. L. Willis of Cheshire.

Daniel Parsons,
living in the town of Bristol, Ontario county, attempted suicide week before last by taking a half-ounce dose of arsenic, which proved too much to kill him immediately, and sickened him. He lived six days, regretted bitterly his folly and expired on Monday, the 31st ult. His actions during the past spring have denoted clearly to his family and neighbors that he was troubled with aberration of mind, and his unhappy temperament could not bear the weight of grief that he imagined befell upon him so he deliberately ended his existence.

From Ontario County Journal 9 November 1894

East Bloomfield, N. Y. - Daniel Parsons,
a highly esteemed and respected citizen, died on the road between Canandaigua and this village on Friday evening, November 2. The cause was probably heart failure. Mr. Parsons went to Canandaigua Friday evening by train for the purpose of driving back a horse which he had let to a commercial man. As he was about to depart for home, he met Prof. G. R. Wicker and Thos. Cummings, Jr., who were very anxious to go to Bloomfield that night. When about two miles west of the village of Canandaigua, Mr. Cummings's hat blew off and as the night was very dark, they proceeded back to find the hat. On returning to the carriage, they found the horse partially turned around and Mr. Parsons was nearly out of the carriage, his foot being caught under the toe rod. He was dead before he was placed back into the carriage. They at once proceeded home where he was taken to the office of Dr. Potter but life was extinct. Mr. Parsons was born in the town of South Bristol and removed to East Bloomfield about 18 years ago, and most of that time has carried the mail between this place and Honeoye besides doing a large livery business. In September, 1864, he enlisted in Company K, N. Y. Volunteers and served one year, when he was discharged from service on the 30th day of June, 1865.

He is survived by a widow and two children, Mrs. Spencer Saxby and Henry Parsons. The funeral services were held at the house on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. C. C.

Canandaigua, N. Y. - James D. Paterson,
a well-known and respected citizen, passed away at his home on Chapin street Saturday night, aged seventy-three years and six months. He had been an invalid for the past twenty-three years, as the result of injuries sustained in a railroad accident in England, while he was traveling through that country. He was born in Greenoch, Scotland, in April, 1830, and came to this country in 1849, engaging in business at London, Canada. Later he acted as traveling representative for prominent New York and Boston dry goods houses, and in 1868 came here and established the Boston store, which he continued for twelve years, or till failing health compelled his relinquishing all business. He has long been a member of the Baptist church, and up to the time his declining health necessitated his giving up all activity, he was a leading and active member of the local church. He is survived by his wife, Jane Story, to whom he was united in 1855, and a daughter, Miss Grace S. Paterson, and one son, Robert D. Paterson, both of this place, also survive. He also leaves a sister, Mrs. Grace Carmichael, of Glasgow, Scotland, and brother, Robert C. Paterson, of Dunedin, New Zealand. The funeral is to be held Monday at 2:30 p.m. from the late residence on Chapin street.

From Ontario County Journal 5 September 1913

In the death of Robert Donald Paterson, which occurred at his home on Chapin street on Tuesday morning, Canandaigua loses a loyal and popular citizen. The cause of his death was Bright's disease, following an illness of six weeks. The sympathy of his many friends goes out to his wife, Mrs. Sophia May Fellows Paterson, who with five children, Beatrice, aged 10 years, Donald, aged 8, Helen, aged 5, Ruth, aged 3, and James, aged 2; his aged and totally blind mother, Mrs. Jane Story Paterson; and a sister, Miss Grace C. Paterson, survive. Robert Donald Paterson was born in Canandaigua on August 31, 1873, and was a son of James D. Paterson, for many years a leading dry goods merchant of Canandaigua. When a young man he started work in the A. D. Paul & Co. drug store, after which he acted as paper carrier at the Times office and then became an apprentice at the printing trade in The Journal office. Mr. Paterson, in partnership with Robert T. Hydon and later with his brother, since deceased, became part owner of the Ovid Independent and afterwards assumed the sole control of that paper. In 1898 he sold out his interests at Ovid, and returned to Canandaigua to enter the service of The Journal as associate editor, a position which he retained, with the exception of three years which were spent partly as a legislative clerk at Albany, and partly in newspaper work at Buffalo. In newspaper work, he was noted for his originality of expression, and keen wit. In the active affairs of the community, he was a conspicuous figure, having served as trustee of the village and was chosen two clerk, the office which he held at the time of his death, by a large majority at the election in 1911. He was a staunch Republican.

Life to him was a living reality, bright, cheery and full of hope. It was with his family that he found his greatest pleasure and enjoyment. Generous, unselfish, always ready to do a favor and loyal to the last, his memory will be cherished by a large circle. Many beautiful tributes to the beauty and strength of his character have come from friends of a life time. The funeral services were held yesterday afternoon, Rev. G. Rector Dye, pastor of the Baptist church, of which Mr. Paterson was an active member, officiating. Rev. Dewitt S. Hooker, chaplain of the local I. O. O. F. lodge, of which Mr. Paterson was also a member, read the scripture lesson. The lodge attended in a body. The active bearers were Albert W. Stevenson, William A. Patton, William H. Townsend, J. Charles Smith, Simeon F. Orman and Edwin P. Gardner. The honorary bearers were District Attorney Horace W. Fitch, Charles O. Sackett, Elmer O. Lucas, chairman of the board of supervisors, Timothy W. Lynch, County Clerk James H. Tozer, County Probation Officer John Trembly. Interment was in Woodlawn cemetery.

Died January 21st, at his residence, near Canandaigua, James Paton, in the sixty-ninth year of his age. Mr. Paton was born June 6th, 1801, at Franchie, Fifeshire, Scotland, but came to reside in this country at the age of 17. During the early part of his live he was engaged in commercial pursuits in the city of New York, and there attained the highest eminence as a Christian merchant. He was for several years an elder in the First Presbyterian Church in that city. About twenty-eight years ago, he purchased a beautiful place on the west bank of the Canandaigua Lake, and has since made it his family seat -- spending his leisure hours in the cultivation of his farm. In all business concerns of life, Mr. Paton was an upright and exemplary man. Socially, no spot could be more charming for its genuine hospitality than his home. His influence was always on the side of pure and undefiled religion. Though diffident and retiring in his habits, and consequently having fewer intimates than many others, his attachment to his friends was genuine, ardent and sincere; and his heart was large enough to comprehend the whole human race in its broad evangelical charity.

OBITUARY - Mr. George Patterson
died at his residence, North Main street, at an early hour this morning.  The event had not been unexpected since the deceased fell under a  paralytic stroke in the coal office where employed, some three or four weeks ago, succeeding two or three previous attacks of a like nature, though at long intervals. Since the last one, Mr. Patterson has remained at home, realizing that his life work was done.  At about 3 o'clock this morning he awoke and called for a cup of tea of which he partook.  Asked how he felt, he replied "first rate now, although I've had a bad night."  His son William remained by his side, and the father soon fell into a doze.  At 4:30 a short gasp escaped his lips, and all was over.

Mr. Patterson emigrated from Ireland nearly thirty years ago.  He settled in Geneva in 1836, and for the last 37 years was in the employ of Mr. Elbridge Dakin, (whose death occurred the present year.)  He was an excellent penman and accountant, and assisted in keeping the books and accounts of his employer, also willingly performing whatever labor was assigned to him in and about the warehouse and coal yard.  He enjoyed as he deserved, by his fidelity and integrity, the unlimited trust and confidence of his employer. By thrift and frugality, Mr. Patterson acquired a nice little property in real estate, which in recent years has greatly enhanced its value.  This is left  unencumbered to his aged widow and two only surviving and worthy sons -- Wm. B. and Peter. The funeral of Mr. Patterson will take place next Monday at 9 o'clock from St. Francis de Sales Church, of which he was a faithful and devout member.

John D. Patterson
died at his home on St. Clair street last Friday afternoon, aged 86 years.  For years his has been a familiar and most welcome figure in our streets.  Few but his most intimate friends knew that he was ill.  It seems but a very few days ago that he was seen coming out of Dorchester & Rose's store.  Although Geneva has been his home for many years, buying the place formerly owned by W. B. Douglas, his investments were in the west, in California and Texas, and he ranked with the largest ranch owners of the great west.  One year he was reported to have a harvest of 20,000 acres of wheat, and two years ago his seed cost $14,000.  He is survived by his wife, but leaves no children.  In his death, Geneva loses one of her best citizens.

His death was from heart failure. As told us he had arisen from his bed, and toppled over dead before he could dress. There was a man the very soul of honor, of cheerful disposition, foremost in good works, member of the Y. M. C. A. and of the Rippey Class, and always willing to do any work allotted to him. We have known him for fully thirty years, seen him from once to five times a day, and never once saw a frown upon his face. His domestic relations were of the very pleasantest character. His wife is a daughter of the late William Scoon, who with her daughter will sadly miss a very affectionate husband and father, as the city will miss an upright, honest citizen and good neighbor.

Last Thursday evening while Richard Paul, an employee at the Sonnenberg farm of Mrs. F. F. Thompson, was throwing hay down from a mow, he fell through a chute in the loft. He was found dead on the floor below, having fallen a distance of 24 feet. An examination showed that he had sustained an injury to the back of his head, which probably caused his death. The chute was evidently covered with hay so that Paul was unable to locate it. The deceased was an Englishman and had been in this country about ten years.

From Victor Herald 15 March 1907

The death of Mrs. Jane Payne, a lifelong resident of the town of Farmington, occurred at her home on Monday afternoon, March 4th, 1907.  Mrs. Payne was born March 11th, 1811, in Farmington, on the farm now in possession of Milton A. Smith, in a log house, the only landmark of its situation being a horse block now standing where the chimney of the house had its foundation. Her parents, William and Martha Hill Brown, were natives of Rhode Island and came to this state in 1790. She was married July 2nd, 1834, to George, son of Gideon and Phebe Hill Payne, who came from Massachusetts and were among the early settlers of the town. Six children were born to them, four of whom survive: Andrew G. Payne, Martha L. Padgham and Hannah L. Norton of Farmington; and Phebe L. Corrigan of Canada; and ten grandchildren and four great-grandchildren. The eldest son, Gideon B. Payne, died in 1880 and the youngest daughter, Florence L. Payne, died in 1905. Mrs. Payne was left a widow in the year 1847. By hard industry, economy and perseverance, with the advice and counsel of her brother, Levi A. Brown, who, having no children, was appointed guardian to his nephews and nieces, she succeeded in removing the debt left upon the farm at the time of her husband's death, in the meantime giving her children a good education. Her sympathy for the bereaved and suffering was always expressed by works more than in words.

At the time of the Civil War, she opened her house many times to the public and helped to devise ways of contributing means for the comfort and relief of the soldiers in the hospitals. She was a strong advocate of temperance in her younger years and helped in carrying on the work of the Womans' Christian Temperance Union since it was first organized in the town in 1877. She was a member of the Orthodox Friends church for more than thirty years, giving liberally to its support and attending services faithfully until failing health prevented. Mrs. Payne had outlived all those with whom she associated in early life, many of whose names she could recall, while memory failed those of the nearest relationship. For six years she had been under the care of nurses, her physical and mental powers gradually failing. Patiently she awaited the summons which released the spirit from its frail tenement to enter the mansions above. The funeral services were held at her home Thursday afternoon, Mary S. Knowles of Union Springs, a former pastor of the Friends church, officiating. The interment was in the Friends cemetery.

Stephen Payne,
aged 72, died at noon yesterday at his home in Stanley, of a complication of diseases, resulting from old age. Deceased was born in Ireland, and came to America forty-two years ago. He settled in Canandaigua and remained there until seven years ago, when he removed to Geneva. His residence in Geneva continued for over five years, when he went to Stanley to live with his son, the Rev. Father Payne, formerly curate at St. Francis de Sales church, in this village, now of Charlotte, N. Y. Deceased was an honorable devout Christian man, a true friend and a noble husband and father. During his residence in Geneva, he made innumerable acquaintances and the keen sympathy expressed because of his departure attests the feeling that existed for him in the hearts of those whom he knew. His wife preceded him to the eternal home, and a daughter and one son, Rev. Father Payne, are his only family survivors. The funeral services will be held at Stanley tomorrow at 10 o'clock and the remains will be taken to Canandaigua for burial, in charge of funeral Director Borgman of this place.
