STEPHEN G. MOOT
Stephen G. Moot a prominent and wealthy farmer of the town of Lincoln died
about 4 o'clock Monday morning at Binghamton State Hospital where he had
been for several months for treatment. The news of his death came as a shock
to many of his friends who did not know that his general health had been
gradually failing since he had been at the hospital.
Stephen Garner Moot was a son of Conrad G. Moot and Mary A. Chapman
Moot who were among the pioneer families of this section of Madison county.
His maternal grandfather was the late Col. Stephen Chapman, through whose
influence a post offics was established at Clockville in 1816 and who was the
first postmaster at that place. Mr. Moot was born on the farm upon which he
resided all his life, Sept. 6, 1837. He succeeded his father as owner of that
farm and another valuable farm adjoining, and occupied an elegant house
known as Oak Hill Grange.
In 1863, Mr. Moot was united in mariage to Katherine Clock who died two
years ago last August, Since her death his health had gradually failed until
late last fall his condition became so serious that he was taken to the Bingham-
ton hospital for treatment.
Mr. Moot was a man of wide acquaintance and many friebds. While all of his
life had passed at his farm home, he was interested in various enterprises and
was a stockholder and director of the First National Bank of Canastota since
its organization, 1890. He also served as vice-president of the board of direct-
ors until incapacitated by illnes. His only surviving relative is one daughter
Miss Kathleen Moot.
Mr. Moot's remains were bought to Canastota Monday evening and taken to
his home at Oak Hill, where funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at
2 o'clock. The Rev. A. J. Abeel of Syracuse officiated and burial was made in
Mt. Pleasant Cemetery by the side of his wife.
