Boy's Stabbing Ruled Accident
Game Here Brought Death By Mistake, Coroner Rules.
Bayonet separates two chums.
A mis-directed throw of a 20-inch-long Army bayonet separated two teen-age chums Saturday when it brought accidental death to one in a boy's game called 'chicken'.

Dr. Walter SHIFTON of Albion, coroner has ruled as accidental the death of 14-year-old Gary CHAPMAN, 14, who was killed shortly after 7 p.m. by the pointed weapon tossed by his playmate and long-time pal, John 'Jackie' PITTARD, also 14. Meanwhile, today funeral services were arranged for 2 p.m. tomorrow for the CHAPMAN youth who lived at 1200 South Main St. with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas GARRETT. The body has been taken to the Barnes-Tuttle Funeral Home, 226 Pearl St.

Medina police, together with District Attorney J. Kenneth SERVE and the coroner, made a full inquiry into the case, questioning the grief-stricken PITTARD boy, and two other playmates, who were all playing the fatal game Saturday evening. Testimony of the boys proved satisfactorily that there was no trace of deliberate action, but rather that the tragedy was the accidental result of a dangerous pastime in which one boy became 'it', and stood against a wooden wall while another attempted to make him ‘flinch’’ by tossing the weapon somewhere near him. The game took place in early evening behind the home of the PITTARD boy’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Francis PITTARD, 1100 South Main St. Used as the wooden background for the game was the wall of an abandoned wooden shed at the rear of the home.

The coroner’s certificate of accidental death disclosed that the long bayonet had struck the youth in the left chest and had pierced through the heart. The throw was believed to be made from a distance of 10 or 12 feet. The key point in the testimony, and one which was repeated by all the youngsters questioned, was the fact that the bayonet snagged on young PITTARD's jacket sleeve just as the throw was made, causing the weapon to deflect and strike CHAPMAN by accident.

Police Sgt. Samuel GIBBS of the Medina department was among the first on the scene, summoned by a neighbor. Piecing the information from his investigation together, Sgt. GIBBS reported that the CHAPMAN boy had apparently walked up to 25 or 30 feet and sat down on a rear step of the Pittard home where he quickly collapsed. The bayonet had fallen from his chest by its own weight near the scene of the boys’ game. Rushed to Medina Memorial Hospital in the municipal ambulance, Gary lived only about five minutes after arrival. The entire time interval between the stabbing and death was placed at less than 20 minutes.

Still a mystery in the investigation is the origin of the Army bayonet, belieyed to be of pre-World War II vintage, possibly World War I. The youngsters were only able to state that they had gotten it at school, but school officials said there would have been no possible source for it there. Police believe it might have been acquired through a succession of boyhood trading.

Adding to the tragedy was the fact that Gary and his friend 'Jackie' PITTARD had been very close chums since Gary moved into the neighborhood seven years ago. Mr. GARRETT said they were together constantly and enjoyed outdoor adventures. He reported that they had spent Saturday afternoon in such recreation as basketball, fishing and hiking. Police Sgt. GIBBS said that Gary and Jackie, together with Bennett ALLEN of Millville and James GARDNER of Medina were together behind the PITTARD home in early evening, and they told him they had been flicking the bayonet at the blank wall of the shed, each taking 10 turns to see who could stick it by its point.

In other conversations with the boys, he learned that they later decided to take turns standing against the wall. At this point, each boy would be given the chance to say, 'no' or to allow the bayonet to be thrown a distance away to test them for flinching. The Pittard boy was questioned only after a doctor’s care for shock and hysteria.

The deceased youngster was a high school freshman here, a member of the Wakapa Honor Society, Junior Dramatics Club, Glee Club, the First Presbyterian Church, and formerly a boy scout. Gary is survived by his parents, as well as a sister, Karen CHAPMAN, and a half-brother, James GARRETT; his maternal grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Weston CORSER of Medina; his father, Stephen CHAPMAN, and grandfather, Edmund CHAPMAN, both of Albion.

The Rev. Edward Simpson, of First Presbyterian Church, will conduct services tomorrow at 2 p.m. at the funeral home, with burial in Boxwood Cemetery.

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, Mon., Feb. 28, 1910
Surnames: CHASE, BRITT

Lewis CHASE, a life-long resident of Medina and a prominent Medina man, was instantly killed by a fall at his home on Saturday night.

Mr. Chase was alone at the time and, evidently, about ten o'clock had started to go down cellar to attend the furnace, with a small kerosene lamp in his hand. The doctor's believe that he suffered a stroke of appoplexy causing him to fall. His head struck on a projection, fracturing his skull and death was instant. The lamp which he held in his hand was broken and set fire to his clothing, causing a dense smoke. His daughter, Miss Louise CHASE, who had been playing with the orchestra at the opera house, returned to find the house filled with smoke and a frantic search for her father at length found his body at the foot of the stairway. Neighbors were summoned and Mr. Chase’s body was brought up stairs and doctors summoned, but nothing could be done.

There is the deepest and most sincere sympathy for the surviving daughter, into whose life three tragedies have entered, her mother (Hattie BRITT), her brother (Myron CHASE) and now her father meeting sudden deaths, and the entire community grieves with her in her bereavement. CHASE had lived in Medina nearly his entire life and was a veteran of the Civil War, and a prominent member of the G. A. R. He served during the war with the 17th New York Battery, at Petersburg, Appomatox and numerous other engagements.

The funeral will take place from the M. E. Church on Wednesday at 3 p.m. It is desired that all veterans of the war attend in a body, whether members of the G. A. R. or not.

LUCY PECK CHRISTY (18 Jan 1809 - 28 Aug 1901)

Newspaper: Unknown
Surnames: CHRISTY, PECK, KILBURN

In the death of Mrs. Lucy CHRISTY, which occurred at noon on Wed., Aug. 28th, Medina loses its oldest resident and one who had been a most useful member of society. Mrs. CHRISTY's childhood home was in Waterbury, Vt. where she was born to Hiram PECK and Welthy KILBURN, on 1/18/1809. At the age of 17 she was married to Henry CHRISTY, of Castleton, Vt., with whom she lived most happily until his death in 1869 and to whom she bore 7 children, 4 of whom lived to a mature age. The first few years of their married life were passed in the little village of Parishville, St. Lawrence County, but in 1884 they came to Medina by way of Lake Ontario and the canal, and here they made their home the rest of their days.

To Mrs. CHRISTY belonged one distinction seldom met with in these days. She was a Daughter of the Revolution of the 1st generation, her father, Hiram Peck, having entered the service of his country in the struggle for independence at the age of 16. Mr. PECK also served his country with the rank of colonel in the war of 1812, and a visit by him to his home during that war, dressed in the striking uniform of the time was one of Mrs. CHRISTY's most vivid childhood recollections, as was the rumble of the cannonading during the battle of Lake Champlain.

During the sixty-seven years of Mrs. CHRISTY's residence in Medina she was a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church, and until recent years a very active one, interesting herself in all the work of the church; and for more that 50 yrs. she was a teacher in the Sunday School.

CHIEF JUDGE CHURCH HIS SUDDEN DEATH AT ALBION ON FRIDAY
--PARTICULARS OF THE EVENT AND SKETCH OF HIS LIFE >br> - THE FUNERAL.

Hon. Sanford E. CHURCH, Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of this State died at Albion on Friday afternoon, of apoplexy. He went to his home in Albion from the sitting of the court in New York city, on Saturday, May 1, a fortnight ago, for a vacation of three weeks. He had, however, during the time applied himself closely to the business upon his hands, it being his custom to write opinions during his stay at home, although he had complained some for a few days previous. Friday morning he went as usual to his law office, and was engaged during the forenoon in preparing an opinion. He appeared usually well at dinner and after; and during the afternoon, on return to his office, he stepped into the Orleans County National Bank near by. While there, about 3:50 o’clock, engaged in conversation with ex-Congressman E. Kirke Harte and some other friends he suddenly complained of feeling unwell. At his suggestion a carriage was called and he was conveyed to his residence on State street. On arriving at the house he retired to his room in the upper portion unassisted, and requested that the family physician be called. When the latter reached him he complained of a pain in his left side and expressed a fear that his heart was affected. The physician, Dr. Lewis, proceeded to prepare some medicine, when suddenly and without warning or a word Judge Church struggled somewhat, turned slightly purple, fell over on one side and was dead, his last words being about his pain. It is thought death resulted from apoplexy. The event caused the utmost sadness throughout the village of his residence, where he was best known and esteemed.

Judge CHURCH was born at Milford, Otsego county, on the 18th of April 1815. At an early age he removed with his parents to Barre in this county. At the age of eighteen he began teaching school and after that taught for several winters at Henrietta and Scottsville, studying law at the same time in the office of J. A. Eastman, then of Scottsville, but now of Rochester. Subsequently he removed to Albion and began the practice of law. Noah Davis was taken into his office, and subsequently the two formed the law firm of Church & Davis. Ever a staunch Democrat in politics, deceased was in 1842 elected to the Assembly. He held the office of District Attorney of Orleans county from 1846 to 1850, having before this held the position of Deputy County Clerk. He was nominated for the office of Lieutenant-Governor in 1850, and re-elected in 1852. He next held the office of Controller from 1857 to 1859, and in 1867 was elected a member-at-large of the Constitutional Convention. In May, 1870, he was elected to the high office of Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals for fourteen years. He was several times mentioned as a Democratic candidate for the Presidency, and in 1868 the New York delegation of his party supported him as a unit. In 1874 he refused to accept the nomination for Governor. Besides his partnership with Judge Davis, he was a partner of Judge Sawyer; also, from 1865, the senior partner of the firm of Church, Munger & Cook, of Rochester.

Deceased was married to a daughter of Justice WILD of Barre Centre, in 1840 (Ann WILD). Their union was blessed with two children, George B. and Nellie CHURCH, both now residing in Albion. His wife and two sisters also survive him. THE FUNERAL.

The funeral services were held at the late residence of the deceased on Tuesday, at three P. M. A vast concourse of people assembled, many eminent men being present from different sections of the state, to do honor to the memory of a pure and upright man. Special trains were run from various points for the purpose of accommodating those who desired to be present, and it is estimated that there were from three to four thousand persons in attendance who were not residents of Albion. Members of the Bar to the number of about two hundred were present.

The remains lay in state in the parlors of the Church mansion, and were viewed by the people, a constant stream of humanity flowing through the house for upwards of three hours. The casket in which reposed the body of the deceased was a magnificent one, covered with black cloth, and heavy silver trimmings. Around its edges lay a graceful border of smilax, and near by were several floral tributes of the most exquisite description. At the head of the casket stood a large cross of white flowers, at its foot another beautiful cross of ivy leaves, and on each side were elegant baskets of cut flowers, a broken column, a crown, and a superb bank of white flowers centered with green. An elegant pillow of white roses, with the initials “S. E. C.”, rested on the upper end of the coffin just above the stately head of the distinguished dead. The broad door-way which separated the two parlors was tastefully draped with black crape daintily caught up here and there with floral emblems. The library chair of the deceased, also heavily draped, stood beside the bier. At precisely three o'clock the lid of the casket was screwed down preparatory to the funeral services. The massive silver plate bore only this simple inscription:

SANFORD E. CHURCH,
Aged 65 years.
The parlors were then cleared of all but the members and intimate friends of the family, the bearers and Judges of the Court of Appeals.

The beautiful and impressive Episcopal services were conducted by the Rev. S. Barnard, rector of Christ Church, Albion, assisted by the Rev. Mr. Nickerson, Rector of the Epiphany Church of Rochester. The Rt. Rev. A. Cleveland Coxe, Bishop of Western New York, was also present. After the reading of the service the choir of Christ Church, consisting of Mr. W. J. Hannington, Jr., Mr. J. B. Hannington, Miss Harrington and Miss Clara Beach, sang “Nearer my God to Thee” in a very affecting manner. Bishop Cox then stepped out of the open window upon the front veranda and addressed the assemblage which surrounded the house briefly but eloquently in relation to the character of the deceased. After the Bishop had finished his remarks the Rev. Mr. Barnard delivered a short address in which he paid a high tribute to the character of the late Judge Church, and expressed in feeling terms the widespread sentiment of sympathy which prevailed for the sorrow-stricken family. The choir then sang, by request, “The Sweet Bye and Bye,” after which the Rev. Mr. Nickerson made the closing prayer. In a few moments the casket was borne out of the house and placed in the hearse, the following named distinguished gentlemen acting as pallbearers; Hon. Noah Davis, New York, Hon. Jarvis Lord, Pittsford, J. M. Cornell, Albion, Charles H. Moore, Albion, Hon. Wm. Mudgett, Rochester, Hon. Dan. H. Cole, Albion, Frank Parmelee, Chicago. All of the Associate Judges of the Court of Appeals were present and acted as honorary bearers.

About half-past four o’clock the funeral cortege moved up State street to Main in the following order:
Civic societies and citizens on foot,
Orleans County Bar in carriages.
Clergy.
Honorary bearers - Court of Appeals.
Bearers.
Casket.
Family.
Ex-Judges of the Court of Appeals.
Supreme Court Judges.
State Officers and Committees of the Legislature
Members of the Bar and Press from abroad.
Visiting committees.
Visiting friends.
Citizens in carriages.

The funeral procession was shortened somewhat by the inability of some of the visiting delegations to march to the cemetery in consequence of the early departure of their trains for home. Nevertheless the cortege was an imposing one, and as it proceeded on its solemn way the bells of the various village churches tolled the solemn knell of death. Main street was profusely and appropriately decorated for the occasion, several of the business places being draped. The office formerly occupied by Judge Church at the corner of Main and Bank streets, was hung with crape, and the Court-house, at the corner of State and Main was also heavily draped, the large pillars being wound with black and a draped American flag being festooned across the front of the building. The interment took place in the pleasant family lot of the deceased, in Mount Albion Cemetery. The usual Episcopal burial service was read by the Rev. Mr. Barnard, and the mortal remains of the eminent citizen and judge were reverently and tearfully lowered into their final resting place.

Newspaper: Northern Christian Advocate - Wednesday, June 6, 1860, Page 90, Col 4
Surnames: CLARK, COOK, ELLWANGER, MITCHENER, REECE, STORMS, WARNER, YOUNG

Sister Harriet CLARK, daughter of Rev. Calvin P. CLARK, of the Genesee Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, died in West Barre, Orleans County, New York, May 4th, 1860, of typhoid fever, aged 19 years.  Harriet was, in many respects, a superior young lady.  Possessed of a brilliant mind and a generous heart, she readily won the esteem and friendship of her associates.  She always occupied a high position in the warmest affections of parents and kindred. 

Some time last winter she was thoroughly converted to God, and from that time pressed steadily and faithfully on in the Christian life, till the Master called her to participate in the bliss of heaven.  During her last sickness, she often expressed the firmest trust in God, and such an apprehension of the merits of the atonement by faith, as fully fitted her for a transfer to glory.  Her early death falls with crushing weight upon this Christian family; but they find ample support in the blessed assurance of ultimately meeting her in heaven.  While trying to preach at the funeral, I found the family wonderfully sustained by God.  May they all meet in heaven.

NOTICE OF DEATH INTERRUPTS STORY OF SOLDIER’S DEEDS

MEDINA, Sept. 23. Joy over news from a soldier son turned to sorrow with dramatic suddenness in the home of Mr. and Mrs. Clarence CLARK, West Ave., Medina. The doorbell rang Thursday evening at the Clark home and Staff Sgt. Lester Travis of Penn Yan walked in, fresh from the battlefields of Italy, where he had been fighting side by side with Staff Sgt. Howard F. CLARK, 24, son of the Medina couple.

'It was the first word we had received from Howard in a long time,” said his sister, Mrs. Joseph HUDEC, “and we were so happy to hear what he had been doing. Sgt. Travis had been talking with us less than an hour when the bell rang again. A Western Union messenger handed a telegram to my mother. It was from the War Department. Howard had been killed in action in France on Aug. 20. We couldn’t believe it at first.'

As deeply affected over the death of his buddy as were members of Staff Sgt. CLARK’s family, Sgt. Travis spent the night with the Clarks and returned to his Penn Yan home Friday. 'I was in the same company with Howard', he said, 'and just before I left to come home in July heard that the outfit was going to France but Howard’s parents did not know he had left Italy. I had been overseas 23 months and got home Sept. 4.'

Staff Sgt. CLARK left Medina in October 1940 with Co. F, 108th Infantry, and after training in this country he was sent to Hawaii. He returned here in April 1943 for additional training and was sent to Italy in February. A graduate of the Medina High School in 1938, he was active in sports. His brother, Staff Sgt. Robert CLARK of Hawaii, also left with Co. F, 108th Infantry, and the two were together in Hawaii for some time.

Surviving, besides his parents and brother, are two sisters, Mrs. Malcolm HILLand Mrs. HUDEC of Medina, and his grandmother, Mrs. Lucy CLARK of Medina.

Sergeant CLARK left Medina in October 1940 with Company F, 108th Infantry, with which he been affiliated since 1936. He trained at Fort McClellan Ala., and Ft. Ord, Calif. before leaving for service in Hawaii. He returned to the United States in April 1943, on a fourteen-day furlough, at the completion of which he returned to Ft. McClellan, as a member of the training cadre. On Christmas Day in 1943, Sergeant CLARK arrived home to spend a week delay-en route to Ft. George G. Meade, Md., from which point he was sent overseas, arriving in Italy early in February. He was assigned to the Third Infantry Division and saw action on the Anzio Beachhead. His company went into France early in August, 1944, where he met his death on August 20th.

Sergeant CLARK was posthumously awarded the Purple Heart and the Presidential Citation, also the Bronze Star Medal,which was presented to his mother by Capt. Rexford H. Dettre, Public Relations Officer, District 4 Second Service Command. The award was for action May 20, 1944, in Italy when he harrassed a position along a railroad bank which resulted in the capture of three Germans.

Besides his parents, Sergeant Clark is survived by one brother, Robert E. CLARK; two sisters, Mrs. Malcolm HILL and Mrs. John HOWE; and his grandmother, Mrs. Lucy CLARK.

Not only did he do his full share in reclaiming our land from its primeval forests but his moral influence was always on the side of right.

He was a man of sterling integrity in all the walks of life, as a friend, a neighbor and a citizen. The breath of slander never attempted to tarnish his good name. He was for years an active and consistent member of the Baptist church and his activity only ceased through the infirmities of age.

Mr. CLARK was thrice married and leaves a widow (Priscilla PAXON) and four children to mourn his loss.

CLUM

AURILLA (ARRILLA) CLUM (1821 - 16 Jan 1873)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 23 Jan 1873
Surnames: CLUM

Died: In Shelby, January 16th, of heart disease, Arrilla, wife of Jacob CLUM, aged 51 years. The deceased had for many years been a faithful member of the M. E. Church, beloved in life, prepared for death, she passed away.

One mark of her life, and which rendered her dear,
Was that cheerful and pleasant she would always appear,
And when trials and sorrows over her come,
Would try ever to say, “Thy will be done.”

She’ll reap the reward of her labors on earth;
Those who knew her best, best knew her worth -
In sickness and suffering, trouble and need,
She proved herself truly a friend in deed.

Her own dear children, who last saw her face
As she lay sweetly sleeping in death’s silent embrace,
Will remember the blessings and counsel she left,
To comfort their hearts so swiftly bereft.

But they never will meet her on earth any more;
The sorrows and joys of life are all o’er, -
And we trust that she now is taking sweet rest,
Safe, safe at last, in the home of the blest.
(Carrie)

(Interment in Fletcher Cemetery)
