Alvah settled in Bemus Point in 1819. The Morning Post 6/21/1931: This community was shocked and saddened Saturday morning by the suicide of Alvan Drayton, whose lifeless body was discovered in his car in the garage at his home at about 7:30 o’clock by a neighbor, Mr. Morrison, who came to the house for milk, and who, upon going to the kitchen door, discovered that the interior of the place was wrecked. He called other neighbors who investigated, finding the body in the garage and nearly all furnishing on the lower floor in the home smashed up, dishes broken, and, as it seemed from appearance, anything that he could pick up and throw was destroyed. Mrs. Drayton was not at home, being at the home of her step-father, James F. Cooper, in Bemus, where she had gone early in the evening and where she had remained until news was brought her of Mr. Drayton’s death. Mr. Drayton had worked in the hayfield all day and it is thought that the hard work, coupled with the intense heat, had considerable to do with the suicide. It is also reported that there had been drinking and all together he was probably temporarily crazed. He had stopped up all crevices in the car and then got in and started the motor. Death was caused by monoxide gas poisoning, according to the verdict rendered by Coroner David Lincoln of Jamestown, who viewed the remains. The motor of the car was running when the discovery was made and the exact time of suicide was undetermined.
