The many friends of Worden BABCOCK, proprietor of the Hart House, were grieved to learn of his death, which occurred about six o’olock Monday morning. Deceased had been ill for the past four months with liver and stomach trouble, which baffled the skill of medical science, and was the direct cause of his untimely demise.

Mr. BABCOCK was nearly sixty- two years of age, having been born July 22d, 1840, in Venice, Cayuga Co., N.Y. He removed to Michigan early in life, and at the beginning of the Civil War enlisted with the sixty-eight Indiana Infantry, with which he endured much active service for three years, in consequence of which his health was impaired, and he was transferred to the Veterans Reserve Corps, serving the remainder of the war at Fort Porter and at Lockport.

Mr. BABCOCK was married to Emma L. CARPENTER, of Mendon, N. Y. and was for a number of years engaged in the general merchandise business in that place and at Honeoye Falls, N. Y., afterwards removing to Missouri where he purchased a large cattle ranch. In February, 1892, Mr. BABCOCK came to Medina and purchased the Hart House, which, in company with his son, he has since successfully conducted. He was a man of good, sound judgment, and was highly esteemed by a host of friends. He was a member of Medina Lodge F. and A. M. and of the G. A. R.

Besides his widow, deceased is survived by one son - Frederick C. BABCOCK - and two sisters - Mrs. J. D. LOVEJOY, of Mendon, and Mrs. Clara DAVOFDSON, of Rochester - who have the sympathy of a large circle of friends in their sad bereavement.

James BAILEY was born Oct. 25, 1834 at Whitestown, Oneida County, N.Y. He was the son of Jeremiah and Laura WILLIAMS BAILEY. The BAILEY's came to Orleans County in 1844 and first settled in Gaines. Jeremiah was a progressive farmer who operated a 240-acre farm on the transit Road. James BAILEY had two brothers - Lewis, who died fairly young , and Abner B., who was a successful businessman.

At the age of 18, James became employed with Harvey GOODRICH and later was associated with Charles BAKER in the produce business for 15 years. During this time, he developed a fine farm west of Albion which was later owned by J.H. DENIO. It was this farm that became the original tract for the Western House of Refuge (Albion Correctional Facility).

In 1874, James together with his brother Abner became associated in the forcery business. In 1879 he purchased his brother's interest and in 1882 admitted his son, Herbert, into the trade. Their business then became known as James Bailey and Son, and was located in Swan's Block (HSBC) on Main Street in downtown Albion. This father-son conbination also ran a large fruit house located on the railroad near the freight depot. He was the first to build such a facility here, which had a capacity of 8,000 barrels.

BAILEY took great interest in the Orleans County Agricultural Society and did a great deal to advance its efforts, serving one time as president. He was also the first to develope anything at Oak Orchard on the Lake, which resulted eventually in a beautiful summer resort. In politics, he was a Democrat and served in several village offices.

BAILEY was seen as a public spirited man with generous inpulses. He was identified with the Masons and other fraternal ordanizations as well as the First Baptist Church. He was married in 1857 to Mary Jane CADY, by whom there were two children, Herbert J. and Frank H.

Soon after their marriage they came to this place and located on the farm now owned by John Sh--wood, north of Shelby Basin. After two or three years he sold that and purchased the one now owned by James Cullen on the same street. In 1841 he exchanged that farm for one on the Bates road, owned by his father-in-law, Jude COMSTOCK, where he continued to reside until his death July 29th, 1897, at the advanced age of ninety-three years and twenty-seven days.

He leaves to mourn his loss, besides a large circle of friends, who respected him for his uprightness of character and honorable dealings, four children - Jude II, of Janesville, Wis.; Mrs. T. A. BACON, Mrs. J. E. ALLIS and William J. BALCH, of this place.

Surnames: BANCROFT & BROUGHTON

MURDER - BROUGHTON Shoots and Kills Levant BANCROFT

Considerable excitement was created in Medina this morning by the news that murder had been committed in the village during the night. In an interview with Officer Beecher we were able to obtain the following particulars of the unfortunate affair:
About 11:30 Mr. Beecher was aroused by a messenger with the information that Levant BANCROFT had been shot. On hastening to the latter's residence on Rock Street, the wounded man was found breathing his last. From Mrs. BANCROFT it was learned that soon after eleven o'clock Asa BROUGHTON called at the house and asked to see Mr. BANCROFT, requesting him to step outside. The latter invited him in, and after a few words had passed between them they went out on the walk. There angry words ensued, and finally the report of a revolver, followed by another in rapid succession. BANCROFT walked into the house exclaiming “I'm shot! Asa BROUGHTON did it,” and expired within fifteen minutes without uttering another word. On examination two frightful wounds were discovered, one in his breast, the other in the region of the heart. It was also learned that about six o'clock the same evening Mrs. BROUGHTON called at the same place ostensibly to inquire the way to a house she was endeavoring to find. How prominently she figures, if at all, in this affair, or what was the motive that prompted the murder, has not yet developed. Our police officers forthwith instituted a search for Broughton, but as yet he has eluded arrest.
Both parties were members of the Pitts Light Guard, BANCROFT being Orderly Sergeant and BROUGHTON a private. The former was 45 years old, the latter 40. BANCROFT taught school during the winter at East Shelby, and has since employed his time in various ways; BROUGHTON worked at the trade of a cooper. They were well known in this community, and being men of temperate habits and good character, as far as we are able to learn, such a crime was little suspected, especially from a man apparently so inoffensive as BROUGHTON.
Coroner Crandall impaneled a jury this morning, who, after viewing the remains, adjourned further proceedings until Monday next.


Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 22 May 1879

EVENTS OF THE WEEK - THE MURDERER ARRESTED IN CANADA

News of the frightful tragedy, in which Levant BANCROFT of this place was murdered by Asa BROUGHTON, of Shelby, was received last week at the hour we were preparing for press, hence our report was somewhat meager. Various reports have since been in circulation regarding the motive that prompted Broughton to commit the deed, and many theories have been advanced regarding the affair, but a small part of which have savored of anything near the truth. In fact, the affair has been the leading and all absorbing topic of conversation, and not a little scandal regarding "the woman in the case" has been retailed. On one point all appear to agree, and that is that jealousy was what prompted the deed.

The funeral of the murdered man was held at the armory on Friday afternoon last. The remains were in charge of a detachment of the Pitts Light Guard detached for that purpose. The funeral was largely attended, the armory being filled. The exercises were as follows: Dirge by the band, reading of Scriptures and prayer, followed by very interesting and appropriate remarks by Rev. Mr. Randolph, pastor of the Universalist church at Ridgeway. Another dirge was then played and the procession formed and marched in the following order to the cemetery: Acer's band, Pitts Light Guards, hearse with escort, relatives and friends in carriages - a large number going to the burial place. Saturday morning a report that the grave of BANCROFT had been opened during the preceding night, and the body taken away, obtained quite a circulation through the town, but proved to be false.

The coroner's jury concluded their deliberations on Monday before Coroner Crandall and District Attorney Keeler. Nine or ten witnesses were sworn, and the verdict was that Levant BANCROFT came to his death by a ball fired from a revolver in the hands of Asa BROUGHTON; and further, that they considered Asa BROUGHTON guilty of murder. A few facts were brought out in the testimony that corroborate some of the rumors that have been afloat since the shooting occurred. It was shown that Mr. and Mrs. BROUGHTON quarreled on Wednesday; that she left the house and came to Medina to stay with friends; that as she did not return in the evening BROUGHTON sent his son to learn her whereabouts who returned with the information that she was at BANCROFT's; that BROUGHTON came down supposing she was at BANCROFT's where he had the encounter resulting in the murder. It was also shown that BROUGHTON probably went directly to his home in Shelby, changed his clothes and, taking a change of underwear, started northward, going to Kenyonville, where he worked last season, and where money was still due him. He returned to Shelby and conversed with his son.

On Thursday, the day after the murder, Sheriff Munn offered a (reward) of $100 for Broughton's arrest, which sum was subsequently increased to $300. Officers have since been traversing the country in search of him. Rumors have been afloat that this man and that man had seen him at various places in the town of Shelby; but finally yesterday afternoon a telegram was received from Deputy Sheriffs Beecher and Rice, from Hagersville, Ont., that they had arrested Broughton near the line of the Canada Southern Railroad about sixty miles from Buffalo. He was brought to town this morning on the 8:37 train, and an examination is being held at the Armory at this time of writing.

Just before going to press we learn from Deputy Sheriff Rice that BROUGHTON talks freely and gave a full account of his encounter with BANCROFT and his endeavor to escape. He states that he went directly to Shelby after the shooting, thence down near Kenyonville and returned to Shelby, corroborating the testimony before the Coroner. After the interview with his son on Thursday morning he made his way west, crossed the railroad near Middleport and proceeded northwest until arriving at the residence of a cousin in the town of Hartland where he remained and worked on the latter’s farm during Friday. His cousin learning on Friday evening, from a Lockport paper, of the crime he had committed declined to shelter him longer so he proceded to the Niagara River where he arrived Saturday night. It was so dark he could not effect a crossing until four o’clock the following morning when he performed the perilous feat of crossing on the wires suspended upwards of a hundred feet above the river near Lewiston. (The wires referred to are those left of the old Suspension Bridge at that place, and it is said no one ever dared to cross them before. At the time BROUGHTON crossed officers Fuller, Allen and others from this place were within six miles of him.) During Sunday BROUGHTON says he walked sixty-five miles to a place near where he was captured. After considerable difficulty officers Beecher and Rice found him on Wednesday at the residence of his sister. He made no resistance, and expressed himself as almost glad they had come for him, as he was in constant misery. We understand he makes a plea of self defense, as his excuse for the shooting.


Newspaper: the Medina Tribune of Thurs., May 29, 1879

An error occurred in our report of the examination in the BROUGHTON-BANCROFT tragedy before the coroner last week, in the statement that BROUGHTON’s son returned from Medina and said that his mother was at Bancrofts’. He informed his father that she was at A. Botsford’s.

(Note: Levant BANCROFT was buried in Boxwood Cemetery.
Asa BROUGHTON died 25 Jul 1888 and was buried in Knowlesville Cemetery)

HOWARD L. BANE (1911 - 15 Mar 1953)
LAURA TANNER BANE (1914 - 15 March 1953)

Newspaper: The Medina Journal, Mon. 16 March 1953
Surnames:

Lyndonville - Death came instantly to a Lyndonville couple early Sunday morning when their auto swerved, left the road, leaped and skidded 140 feet and finally caught fire at a point on Roosevelt Highway (Route 18), a few miles west of here and near the settlement of County Line. Mr. and Mrs. Howard L. BANE, 42 and 39, respectively, were victims of the tragedy and they leave a family of eight children, who are today living with their grandmother, Mrs. Clara BANE, at the home of Keith N. BANE, Petrie Rd.

The two victims were returning via Roosevelt Highway to their home on Lower Lake Rd. north of County Line after an evening of shopping in Lyndonville and they were carrying two five-gallon drums of kerosene in the back of the auto, one of which burst into flames, adding to the blaze of the auto.

Funeral services have been scheduled for tomorrow at 2 p.m. from the Smythe Funeral Home, N. Main St., with the Rev. Raymond Draffin of First Methodist Church officiating and burial in Lynhaven Cemetery.

Following an autopsy ordered by State Police investigators and performed by Pathologist Dr. Joseph Tannenberg of Batavia, a certificate of accidental death has been issued. Dr. David Fraser, Orleans County coroner, who issued the certificate today, listed the cause of death as “unavoidable due to mechanical impact.” He reported that the severe burns and death were instantaneous. No witnesses were found who could give State Police an exact accounting of the tragedy. Mr. and Mrs. George Grant, farm workers and occupants of a tenant house on the Bertrand Todkill farm, heard and felt the impact when the car grazed a side of their house before coming to rest against a tree. They told police, “We ran out of the front door and the car was already burning when we got there.”

Firemen from Lyndonville were called, arriving shortly before 1 a. m., according to Chief Watson Plummer. The blaze had subsided by that time and investigators determined that the two were pinned in the wreckage and would have been unable to get free of the car, if they had been conscious after the crash.

The BANES had come here to shop sometime after 8 p. m. according to their oldest daughter, Clara, 15, who was left to take care of the youngsters at home. An older brother, John, 19, was at his job in the Lockport City Hospital when the parents left.

Cause Unknown
No exact explanation of the cause of the accident has been determined by State Police. Tire marks in the highway indicated that the car started to swerve and skid on the pavement, then left the right side of the road. The skidding auto traveled 100 feet before it struck a stone abutment, and then, according to Trooper Arthur Haines, it apparently left the ground, turned over and hit the tree. The total distance was estimated at about 140 feet. The car was completely demolished and its contents of groceries scattered about the area. Mr. Grant, occupant of the tenant house near the scene, went immediately to the home of Thomas Manning, who manages the Todkill farm, to call assistance.

The dead man was employed by the Upson Company in Lockport, where he had worked for nine years. Prior to that time he had lived for several years on Eagle St. in Medina, while working at Niagara Chemical Div. in Middleport. The couple moved to Lower Lake Road about three years ago.

Besides John and Clara, other children of the victims are Howard, 13, Arnold, 11, Loretta, 7, Robert, 5, Herbert, 3, and Shirley, 2. BANE also leaves his mother, Mrs. Clara BANE of Marshall Rd., Lyndonville RD; four brothers, Leo of Rochester, Keith, Irving and Earl, all of Lyndonville RD; and a sister, Mrs. Myrtle HILL of Rochester. She leaves her mother, Mrs. Catherine TANNER of Marshall Rd.; her father, Alonzo TANNER of Lockport; a brother, Harold of Maryland; and two sisters, Mrs. Edna HUNDSHAMER of Lockport and Mrs. Margaret BURNDT of Rapids.

Surnames: BANNISTER

A. D. BANNISTER, one of the best known farmers in the town of Barre, died Saturday evening as a result of an accident that occurred while he was driving home from Albion with a load of tile on a lumber wagon. When near Bragg’s Corners on the new Barre state road, one of the tugs of the harness became unfastened allowing the whiffletree to drop down against one of the horses, on a slight down grade. The team became frightened and started to run. A bolt dropped out of place, permitting the whiffletrees to drop and the neck yoke to slip over the end of the wagon tongue. When the team jumped, Mr. BANNISTER, who was 68 years of age, was thrown to the cement highway, where he struck on his head. His skull was fractured at the base and he was made unconscious.

Dr. L. G. Ogden, of Barre Center, was summoned and the injured man was taken to his home, one-half mile south of West Barre village. He died at 7:30 o’clock without recovering consciousness.

The firm of INGERSOLL & BARHITE was known for road construction in and around Medina, Hornell, Binghamton, Bergen, Hi1ton, Churchville, at Letchworth Park and other points in this state.

Newspaper: Unknown
Surnames: BARRETT, FLOOD, TANNER, WELD

Almira FLOOD BARRETT Died, at her home in Ridgeway on 2/19/1899. Mrs. Almira Flood Barrett, widow of Luther BARRETT, aged 92 yrs.

Mrs. BARRETT was born in Londonderry, Vt. 1/2/1802 (1806). In 1833 her parents moved to Erie County in this state. Two yrs. later she married Luther BARRETT and came to Ridgeway where the young couple built the house which the wife was spared to occupy and enjoy for 64 yrs. It was always a happy, restful home where friends and acquaintances delighted to gather and was to the children a sacred realm where loving kindness, gentleness and tact were the inspiration to all that was beautiful and true in life.

In the 25 yrs. of her widowhood Mrs. BARRETT was not left alone. One daughter stayed by her side to minister lovingly and faithfully to her needs and smooth her pathway onward, until she was summoned to meet the husband from whom she had so long been separated in that other land "across the river". Her "four score and twelve years" brought no shadow upon her mind, no gradual failing of her intellect. Always keen and observant, she was greatly interested in the current events or the world's daily history as told in the various periodicals upon her table.

With her death the last of the early settlers on the Ridge road has passed away. She has four children to "rise up and call her blessed", all of whom are living- Sylvester, the only son, Miss Dora BARRETT and Mrs. H.J. TANNER all of Ridgeway and Mrs. A.S. WELD of North Dakota. The services were held at the home, Rev. W.B. Howell officiating. He paid a feeling and eloquent tribute to her long useful and beautiful life as wife, mother and friend.

DANIEL BARRETT (1840 - 23 Jan 1880)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 29 Jan 1880
Surnames: BARRETT, KEARNEY

On the morning of the 23d inst., our community was shocked by the sudden and unexpected death of one of our prominent business men, Mr. Daniel BARRETT, of the firm of Kearney, Barrett & Co., extensive dealers in quarry stone at this place. A few weeks since Mr. BARRETT had taken a business trip to Chicago and intermediate points for the purpose of closing up the years’ business of his firm with western customers. On his return, and just before reaching home, he had a severe attack of lumbago, which continued in an aggravated form for some days after his return. His sufferings from this attack were excruciating, and as a result he was much reduced and enfeebled when his physician finally obtained control of the disease. He had, however, so far recovered on Monday, the 19th inst., as to be upon the street and transact some business, but immediately succeeding this, and on Tuesday morning, he was attacked with hemorrhage of the lungs. On Thursday Dr. E. M. Moore, of Rochester, was called in consultation with Dr. Chapman, the attending physician, and after an examination of the case found no apparent reason why Mr. BARRETT would not recover. On Thursday evening Mr. BARRETT spent the time in lively and cheerful conversation with his friends and in making calculations respecting his business future, but later, and about four o’clock A. M. of Friday, he was attacked with a hemorhage which proved fatal in the short space of five minutes. And thus are we again reminded that “in the midst of life we are in death."

Mr. BARRETT was about forty years of age. About seven years since he was united in marriage to Miss Anna E. KEARNEY, a daughter of the late James KEARNEY, of this place, who, together with two children, survive him. Previous to June 1878, Mr. BARRETT had been engaged in merchantile pursuits at Niagara Falls, where he had sustained an honorable and useful position for some years. At the last mentioned date Mr. BARRETT, having become interested in the Kearney quarry, became a resident of our village, and since which his in-comings and out-goings have been familiar to our people. It is not too much to say that by his thorough business training, his attention to business, his affability and his punctilious regard for all the details of a large business, and for everything which might affect the business standing of his firm, stamped him as an honest, careful and sagacious business man, and attached to him as friends all with whom he came in contact. His death is a public loss and deeply regretted by our people, not only on the score of friendship, but as affecting our business interests.

Mr. BARRETT was one of the original founders of the "Catholic Mutual Benefit Association," had served as Grand President of this State, and upon the completion of the National Organization, was made "Supreme President" of the United States and Canada, which position he held at the time of his decease. His funeral was held at St. Mary’s Church, in this place, on Monday, the 26th, Rev. W. J. McNab, assisted by Revs. Cannon, 1 Darey, Daly and Lanigan, officiating. Delegations from branches of the association of which he was the founder and head, were present from Buffalo, Niagara Falls, Lockport, Albion, Detroit, Spencerport, Seneca Falls, Windsor and Toronto, Can., and Titusville, Pa., and the church was crowded with these and the citizens of our village. Verily, "a good man has fallen,” but “his works do follow him.”

Newspaper: Tribune

Benjamin J. BARRY
The editor of the TRIBUNE is called upon this week to perform a sad duty in recording the death of an old and highly esteemed friend and one of our most faithful and popular contributors. For nearly twenty-four years, with the exception of one week, the TRIBUNE has not been issued, without the appearance of a Lyndonville letter from "B" and we know that none of our valuable corps of correspondents will be so greatly missed by our readers as the one who has been so faithful to their interests, and who is now at rest in the sleep which knows no awakening here on earth.

Benjamin B. BARRY, whose death occurred at his home in Lyndonville, on the evening of December 24th, after two weeks illness with heart failure, was born in the town of Yates in November 1828. He was the son of the late James BARRY, one of the pioneers of that town, who was the father of nine children, six of whom survive; also the aged mother, Mrs. Martha BARRY, in her 89th year, who resides with her daughter, Louise, at Knowlesville. Mr. BARRY's first wife was Louise CADY, who died in 1859. He afterward married Maryette AYER, who lives to mourn the decease of a kind, patient, sympathetic and indulgent husband. There are also six surviving children- five sons and one daughter- and the entire family, have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in their sad bereavement.

Mr. BARRY had been a farmer until a few years since, and had held various offices of trust and responsibility. He was some years ago elected Justice of Sessions on the Republican ticket, and was for many years Justice of the Peace. He was a member of the Methodist Church, and having a fair musical talent was for fifty years chorister of the Lyndonville Church. Of the deceased it may be truly said he was conscientious and faithful in the performance of every duty, whether it was in attending to his religious devotions, his business interests or his labors as a contributor for the press.

Funeral services were held at the Methodist Church, Lyndonville, yesterday afternoon, the pastor, Rev. R. Copeland, officiating.

Interment in Lynhaven Cemetery

Newspaper: Unknown
Surnames: BARRY, CALDWELL, OAKES, SWAIN, VAUGHN

Frank S. BARRY, 65, well known resident of the town of Yates, was burned to death early Monday when the frame dwelling, in which he lived alone, was entirely destroyed by fire. Lyndonville firemen were called to the scene when Mrs. Paul Parsons, who resides near the Barry home, was awakened by the red glow caused by the flames.

The house in which Mr. Barry lived was the tenant house on the Leonard Oakes farm and located in the Alps rd. just outside the village limits. The fire had gained such headway and means of fighting the fire were restricted by lack of water so that the building was entirely consumed. Believing that Mr. BARRY must have been in the house when burned, a call was issued to the Orleans county sheriff’s office. Sheriff Carl Kleindinest together with Deputy Frank Mahar of Lyndonville directed a search of the ruins and the charred and burned body was discovered by members of the Lyndonville Fire Department in the basement of the burned building. It was surrounded by what was left of a bed and it is assumed that he must have been asleep at the time the fire occurred. It is thought that Mr. Barry may have been smoking in bed and fallen asleep with a lighted cigarette. He was seen in the village at about 10 p.m. and was known to have gone home at that time. A dog belonging to Mr. BARRY is believed to have perished in the flames also.

Coroner David Fraser of Lyndonville was called and had the body removed to the Smythe Funeral home. An inquest was conducted and the sheriff's office investigated. Mr. and Mrs. Leonard OAKES, nearest residents to the BARRY home, were in Troy Sunday where they had taken their eldest son, a student at RPI, to enter his college term. Another son, James Oakes was alone in the home at the time. Mrs. OAKES is a daughter of the deceased man. Mr. BARRY is a native of the Town of Yates. He was born June 6, 1883, and his parents were the late Newton J. and Flora SWAIN BARRY. He was a coal dealer in Lyndonville for many years. His wife, Mable Vaughan Barry, formerly of Springville, died in September 1935.

He is survived by three daughters, Mrs. PAKES of Lyndonville, and twin daughters, Mrs. Rufus CALDWELL of Lake Latonah, N. Y., and Miss Bernadine BARRY of Ocean Side, L. I.; two brothers, Mark P. and Stanley R. BARRY, both of Lyndonville, and four grandchildren. Funeral services were held Wednesday, Sept. 14, at 2:30 p.m. from the Smythe Funeral home, with Rev.

Newspaper: unknown
Surnames: BARRY, HALL

Mrs. Martha BARRY of Knowlesville, N. Y., died April 20, 1896, at the residence of her daughter Louisa M. Barry.

Sister BARRY was born in Palmyra, Wayne County, N. Y., July 3, 1806. Thus, for nearly ninety years she had lived, being one of the few pioneers who are left in the vicinity.

She had lived to see most of the great changes of the nineteenth century. Her life was full of toil and success. With an earnest, cheerful spirit, she met the great responsibilities of life.

The last fifteen years were spent in the quiet and rest of the Christian's hope - like the beautiful sunset, giving tokens of the coming day. She passed away without disease - a natural death.
