Kills 2 Children, Mother And Self, Wounds Wife
Tragedy struck Medina last night when a Marine veteran, apparently going berserk, shot and killed his two young children, his mother, wounded his wife, and shot himself.

Carl HAGERMAN, 28, fired five shots from a 20-guage double barreled shotgun, at his home, 133 Elizabeth Street, last night between 6:15 and 6:30, killing his 7-year old daughter, Nancy, six-year-old son, Andrew Michael, his mother, Mrs. Bessie HAGERMAN, 61, and wounding his wife, Frances. Mrs. Frances HAGERMAN was taken to the Medina Memorial Hospital in the municipal ambulance with chest, shoulder and hand wounds. Her condition is described as "fair" today. District Attorney J. Kenneth SERVE and Dr. L F. WATERS, coroner, expect to question her tomorrow regarding details of the shooting.

Medina police received a call from neighbors at 6:30 p. m., to which Patrolman John Pratt responded. When he arrived he said that Carl HAGERMAN was sprawled on the front porch of the house with the top of his head blown off and the shotgun five feet away. He was still alive but expired almost immediately.

Proceeding into the house, Patrolman Pratt encountered the bodies of Mrs. Bessie HAGERMAN and the boy in the living room. Mrs. HAGERMAN'S body was half fallen from the davenport, and the boy was lying on the floor where he had been reading the funnies. The little girl apparently attempting to flee out the back door, was found head first down the stairs.

Wife of the victim, and the only one to escape death, had fled from the house to the next-door neighbor, the Harry GARNER residence, where she gasped out about the shooting and collapsed on the kitchen floor. She revived for a moment and asked officials about the children before returning to an unconscious condition. She was not informed, however, of their deaths.

Investigating were Medina police including Sgt. Samuel Gibbs, Patrolmen John Pratt, Fred Goodsell and Inspector Harold Kemp and Cpl. Clarence Pasto of the Bureau of Criminal Investigation, in addition to District Attorney Serve and Coroner Waters. Authorities reported it appeared that HAGERMAN "went berserk in his second-floor bedroom". The door leading to the hall had been ripped from the hinges. The officers said it apparently had been unlocked and opened from the inside.

They said HAGERMAN may have been under the impression he was locked in the room and ripped it from the hinges after opening it. A window in the room was shattered and the bulb in pull-light broken. The cord for the light lay on the floor.

They said a gun locker in the son's room was in "general disarray". They said HAGERMAN apparently went there from his bedroom, snatched the shotgun from a rack and pulled six shells from a hunting-coat pocket.

Officials said that Andrew was shot in the side and throat, Nancy in the side, and their grandmother in the side and throat. They further stated that the telephone wires in the house had been cut before the shooting. No reason was determined for the act by the veteran, bartender at the Lincoln Post Veterans of Foreign Wars. Monday was his day off and he spent the day in Niagara Falls, returning approximately at 3 p.m. It was not determined by authorities when he returned to his home.

Apparently he was not expected home for supper, as the table in the kitchen was set for four places. On the range was the supper all cooked, including chops in the pan, with everything untouched. The front porch, living room, kitchen and back stairs are all spattered with blood. In the front yard is a tiny sled apparently owned by Andrew and in the front hall is a doll carriage with dolls, the property of Nancy, a third grade student at Ensign Street School. Andrew is in the kindergarten in the same school.

At the completion of the investigation the bodies of the father and two children were removed to the Cleary Funeral Home, Park Avenue and that of the veteran's mother to the Hartt Funeral Home, Pearl Street.

Mrs. Bessie Amy HAGERMAN, a lifelong resident of Medina, was born August 10, 1887, in the Town of Ridgeway, the daughter of the late George and Alice (COLEMAN) BACON. Her husband, Andrew HAGERMAN, died approximately ten years ago. Since that time Mrs. HAGERMAN has been employed at the R. H Newell Co. A member of the Baptist Church, Mrs. HAGERMAN was a member of the King's Daughters Class of the Church. She was a member and past noble grand of Welcome Rebekah Lodge.

Surviving are four brothers, Adelbert BACON and George BACON of Horan Road and Bert BACON of Shelby and Milford BACON of Detroit, Mich., and one sister, Mrs. Minnie ROMP of Medina.

Funeral services will be held from the Hartt Funeral Home, Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock with the Rev. Ralph D. ROSS of the Baptist Church officiating. Burial will be in Boxwood Cemetery.

Carl HAGERMAN was born Feb. 13, 1921, in Medina, and was graduated from the Medina High School in 1938. During World War II he served with the Marines and fought on Iwo Jima. He was a member and past commander of Lincoln Post Veterans of Foreign Wars. His funeral services will be held Thursday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock from the Cleary Funeral Home with the Rev. Ralph D. ROSS of the Baptist Church officiating. Burial will be in Boxwood Cemetery.

Nancy Ann HAGERMAN was born May 8, 1941, in Medina, and Andrew Michael HAGERMAN was born December 23, 1942. Double funeral services for the youngsters will be held Thursday morning at 8:30 o'clock from the Cleary Funeral Home and at 9 o'clock at Sacred Heart Church. Burial will be in Sacred Heart Cemetery.

NOTE: Patrolman John Pratt later became Chief of Police of Medina.

Surnames: HAKES, BALDWIN

Albion, Oct. 18. - Burnett HAKES, a farmer about forty years old, who lives on the south side of the Ridge road, north of Hulberton, and about seven miles northeast of Albion, was found dead in bed at his home this morning. His wife attended a social at Benjamin BALDWIN's, a cousin, who lives about four miles this side of their home, and stayed all night, Mr. HAKES remaining home alone. The hired man, Mr. Beck, who lives in a tenement house, says that when he went to do the morning work, Mr. HAKES not being around, he went to the house to see if he was there and, the doors being locked, he went for Mr. Buell, a neighbor, and together they returned to the house and gaining access, found Mr. HAKES dead on the bed; his trousers lay on the floor, also his empty pocketbook. A 50 cent piece lay near, and also a towel. Circumstances point to suicide as cause of death, though some hold to the theory of murder. The coroner and district attorney are now on the case and an inquest will soon be held.

HALL

BENONI HALL (1 Mar 1796 - 6 Apr 1874)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 9 Apr 1874
Surnames: HALL, BARRY

LYNDONVILLE: Death has again visited our community, and in a most unusual manner. Two prominent men died on the same day - Monday - (Benoni HALL and David I. HENION) and both will be conveyed to the tomb on Wednesday.

Mr. Benona HALL died Monday morning at the advanced age of seventy-eight. He had been feeble all Winter, but latterly had been improving until last Thursday morning, when he was attacked by the fatal "typhoid pneumonia," and in the brief space of four days, he died. Mr. HALL was emphatically a "pioneer." He came to this town in the year 1816; and, by his powerful arm and energetic spirit, aided in bringing out this beautiful land from the dark wilderness state in which he found it. We remember to have heard in our boyhood days, the wonderful stories of labor and hardship, and that the subject of this memoir was in the foremost rank. Few could excel him in the "chopping and logging," and we remember to have heard him say that not a drop of whiskey was brought into requisition to aid him in his work. The farm now owned by Russil Sill, in the east part of the town, was the scene of his first labor; and except an interval of a few years spent in the town of Ridgeway, this town has been his home all these years. He was married when seventeen years old to Phebe BARRY, who long ago preceeded him to the spirit land. Forty years ago, another became the partner of the toils of the deceased, and now mourns for her long-time companion.

But Mr. HALL's character stands out most prominent as a pioneer of the M. E. Church. He was one of the class of seven, formed about fifty-three years ago, which was the nucleus of the church of this place. All of the seven but one, Father Lott, still lingers; but the church they planted still lives and cherishes the memory of her honored founders. Brother HALL's house was the minister's home in that wonderful time. Fifty-five years a faithful and earnest Christian man; his last days were peaceful, and his death triumphant.

4-Year Old Killed, 4 Others Hurt When Car-Truck Crash

Coroner Kenneth J. CLARK of Medina yesterday issued a certificate of accidental death and the State Troopers today stated that no responsibility has been established in the fatal accident that claimed the life of a four-year-old Niagara Falls girl shortly after seven o’clock Wednesday.

Apparently killed instantly as a result of the crash was Frances D. HALL who was a passenger in a car driven by her mother, Mrs. Leona HALL of 8342 Laughlin Drive, Niagara Falls. In the Medina Memorial Hospital still in a critical condition is Mrs. Clara RORICK, 62, a resident of the Ridge Road near the scene of the accident. Mrs. RORICK is being treated for a crushed chest and severe head lacerations. She is the grandmother of the fatally injured girl. Hospital authorities today said her condition is unchanged. She is a teacher in the Knowlesville school of the Medina Central School System.

Mrs. HALL, mother, and driver of the car, received a laceration of the base of the skull, but was released from the hospital a few hours after she was admitted. Treated at the hospital also were Leo BUCKIEWICZ, 32, 175 North Gravel Rd., Medina, who received lacerations about the head and Whitney CALDWELL, 117 Hedley Street, who received a fractured jaw and was transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital, Rochester, for treatment. Also passengers in the car but uninjured were Herbert HALL, 5, brother of the fatally injured girl, and Gary GOLDSMITH, 5, Albion, RD., son of friends.

According to information obtained from State Police the HALL car was traveling east on Route 104 toward the home of Mrs. RORICK, which is located about a quarter mile from the intersection of the Ridge Road and the Town Line Road, familiarly known as Ostrander’s Corners, when it hit, almost broadside, a truck belonging to Jake’s Auto Service in Medina and being driven by Mr. BUCKIEWICZ, an employee. CALDWELL was a passenger in the service truck. The entire front and left side of the late model Hall car were badly smashed, as was the right side of the truck. The truck came up Townline Road from the north. There is a stop sign at this intersection and Buckiewicz stated that he had observed the sign and pulled across the Ridge not noticing the approaching car. The Medina ambulance was called and the injured taken to the Medina Memorial Hospital.

Funeral services for the Hall girl will be held Saturday, Nov. 28, at 1 p.m. in the Rhoney Funeral Home, 1124 Ontario Avenue, Niagara Falls. Surviving are her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Arnold HALL, a brother, Herbert; her grandparents, Mrs. RORICK of Ridge Rd., and Mr. and Mrs. Paul SAAM of Niagara Falls, an aunt Mrs. Charles MONTGOMERY of Medina, and an uncle, Elmer HALL of Ridge Rd.

Surnames: HANLON, BRENNAN

The death of Edward HANLON, one of its most popular and highly esteemed residents of Medina, occurred at his home on Glenwood avenue. at noon, on Friday last, after at illness of about twelve years of diabetes. Born in Lockport in 1847, Mr. HANLON came here when less than a year old and, when his school education was finished, began a clerkship in the hardware store of Oscar Whedon, working there until 1876, when he formed a partnership with his brother, Hon. James A. HANLON, in the hardware business, since which time the firm has been one of the most successful in this section.

Mr. HANLON was always a staunch Democrat and worked early and late in the interest of the party, and, although he always declined any kind of an office, was fully gratified when his party was successful in the campaign. At one time he was chief of the fire department of the village, and he raised the efficiency of the department to a high standard. Since that time he has refused offers of official preforment.

It is truly said of the deceased that he was upright, honest and straightforward in all his dealings, a gentleman of most exemplary habits. His amiable disposition and cheerful ways won for him many fast friends, and he certainly proved his steadfastness by his good deeds and kindnesses toward them when they were in need. Although he scorned public notice, he was well known because of his many benefactions, and his demise will be a loss to the whole county.

A brothcr, Hon. James A. HANLON, and three sisters, Mrs. Lawrence BRENNAN, Misses Katherine and Mary HANLON, survive. The funeral was held at St. Mary’s Church Monday morning at nine o'clock. The church was packed with the friends of the deceased, not only from this place but from Rochester, Buffalo and nearby cities. The floral tributes to his memory were numerous. The choir sang ‘‘Load Kindly Light," as the remains entered the church. Solemn requiem high mass was celebrated by Rev. Peter Berkery, celebrant; Rev. Thomas Hendricks, deacon; Rev. Jeremiah McGrath, sub-deacon; Rev. James Roche, master of ceremonies. Rev. Thomas Hendricks preached the funeral sermon. In attendance and assisting in the rites were Rev. Peter Berkery, Medina; Rev. Thomas Hendricks, Rochester; Rev. Joseph Hendricks, Ovid; Revs. William J. McNab and James Roache, Niagara Falls; Rev. J. Newnham, Rev. M. Kane and Rev. J. McGrath of Buffalo; Rev. Thomas Milde, Middleport, and Father Leddy, Lockport. During the funeral the stores were closed out of respect to the memory of Mr. Hanlon, who was for many years one of the most prominent merchants of this place. The Knights of Columbus of which the deceased was a charter member, attended in a body and accompanied the remains to the grave, where Rev. Hendricks and Rev. McGrath performed the last sad rites.

Eagle Harbor Couple Adopt Six Children of Motherless Family.

Six motherless children were made smiling and happy in Orleans county Court Thursday, when the petition for their adoption by Mr. and Mrs. Thomas DRAPER, prosperous farmers of Eagle Harbor, was signed by Judge Gerald B. Fluhrer. The children's father, Robert HANNA, formerly of Eagle Harbor, also appeared in court. The mother of the children died a year ago, and the father, who is hard working and industrious, and away from home much of the time, found it next to impossible to keep the children in proper home surroundings. It was his plan at first to give two of the children into the care of Mr. and Mrs. DRAPER, who have no children of their own, and place the other four in the homes of relatives, but the children's grief when told they were to be separated was so great that it touched the kind hearts of Mr. and Mrs. DRAPER, and they then and there decided to take the whole family. The children are, Merle Thorton, l2 years; Roland Mann, 11; Doris Barbara, 8; Frances Marion, 6; Robert James, 4; and Avis May, 2 years old. After the formalities were disposed of and Judge Fluhrer signed the petition Mr. and Mrs. DRAPER, also smiling and happy, departed with their interesting family who plainly showed their joy at being allowed to remain together during their childhood years, and delight in their new-found father and mother. They will reside in a pleasant farm home in Eagle Harbor road, three miles west of Albion.

FATAL TROLLEY-AUTOMOBILE COLLISION
Four Deaths in a Sad Accident at Knowlesville.
Seldom has the people of this entire community been so shocked as on Sunday afternoon last when the sad news came of the accident at Knowlesville when the lives of four young people were sacrificed and two homes made the scene of mourning. It is difficult to find an explanation of the accident itself but the facts in the case are stated as follows: The automobile owned and driven by Alfred J. SKINNER was preceeding southward up Main street in Knowlesville where the occupants, Mr. SKINNER and his three daughters, Mildred aged 18, Helen aged 12 and Dorothy aged 10. - and Marion HARDING aged 14 and Herschel her brother aged 10, only children of Mr. and Mrs. Chester M. HARDING, Jr., -had attended Sunday School; a passenger trolley had a few minutes before gone east past the crossing, an express trolley was coming round the curve west of the depot which is the only obstruction to the view up the track from the brick church up to the crossing. All sorts of claims are made as to the blame for the accident, and it is hard to gather the truth of the matter. The trolley car was at any rate a through one and did not stop at Knowlesville. The impact was sudden and severe. The large automobile, a six cylinder, seven passenger Cole, was struck on the rear of the tonneau and was turned completely around, landing against a stone retaining wall on the southeast corner of the crossing.

PATRICK HAYDEN (14 Mar 1843 - 9 Dec 1891)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 10 Dec 1891
Surnames: HAYDEN, GLEASON

Tuesday evening, as the west bound passenger train which arrives at this station at 6:30 had just crossed the bridge over the Oak Orchard creek, the passengers felt a slight jar, as though caused by the train coming in contact with something on the track. On reaching the station the conductor informed ticket agent Shea of the occurrence and station agent McMahon at once proceeded to investigate the cause. On arriving at the west end of the bridge Mr. McMahon discovered a man, who proved to be Patrick HAYDEN, lying face downward by the side of the track in an apparently lifeless condition. He took him by the shoulder and asked him if he was hurt, but on receiving no reply, hastened to a house near by and procured assistance and a messenger was sent to summon Coroner Munson.

Upon the arrival of the Coroner it was discovered that the unfortunate man was not dead, although he was horribly mutilated about the head, body and legs. He was taken to the depot, and latter to his home on North Avenue, where he died at an early hour next morning. How he came to be walking on the track can not be ascertained, and the exact way in which he was killed will never be known, as he did not regain consciousness after being struck. The force of the shock when the train struck him broke the steps of the smoking car.

Deceased was forty nine years of age and leaves a wife (Margaret GLEASON) and three children. He was a member of the O. M. B. A. and his family will receive a life insurance of $2,000 from that organization. Coroner Munson empanelled a jury and an inquest was held yesterday morning. The verdict was that the unfortunate man came to his death by being struck by train No. 21, on the evening above mentioned, and attaching no blame to anyone. The funeral was largely attended at St. Mary's Church this morning and the remains were entered in St. Mary’s Cemetery.

Surnames: HAYES, COOPER, MERRITT

Joseph HAYES, an employee of George Hess, of this village, and at work as a teamster for Hempt and Washington, state road contractors at work east of Knowlesville, fell from his wagon Monday afternoon and was instantly killed. HAYES was driving along the side of the cement pavement, and was sitting on top of a load of cement, when his wagon jolted in the rut, and he pitched forward,striking on the ground on his head. Russell Perry, foreman of the work, was within twendy feet of the man, and ran to his assistance, but he died within a minute or two. Coroner Munson was summoned and after visiting the scene of the accident, deemed an inquest unnecessary. Although there is quite a laceration in the front part of his head, Dr. Munson believes that death was due to a broken neck.

Funeral services were held at the residence on Oak Orchard street yesterday afternoon, Rev. M. E. Van Nostrand officiating. The interment was at Lynhaven Cemetery, Lyndonville. The surviving relatives are his widow (Clara E. COOPER), two sons and one daughter; two brothers -- Charles, of Niagara Falls; Orville, of Lyndonville, and two sisters -- Mrs. Daniel MERRITTt, of Lyndonville and Naoma, of Arkansas.

HAYNER

JOHN E. HAYNER (29 Mar 1827 - 20 Mar 1903)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 2 Apr 1903
Surnames: HAYNER, NELSON, SCOTT, HASKELL, DRURY, KEITH, FLETCHER

The following, taken from an extended obituary notice in the Alton, Ill., Evening Republican of March 20th, will no doubt be read with interest by many residing in this vicinity who knew of the deceased, if not favored with his personal acquaintance:
John E. HAUNER was born in Charleston, Montgomery county, N. Y., March 29, 1827. Removed to Yates, in the same state, with his parents when six years old. Spent his life on a farm until eighteen years of age, when he entered a dry goods store, where he remained three years and then came west, arriving in Alton in December, 1848, where his first employment was that of clerk in the P. B. Whipple store. Subsequently he became engaged in the hardware business with the late Arba Nelson, under the firm name of Nelson and Hayner. Afterwards he operated a saw mill, and box factory; became a bank director, a member of the firm of J. E. Haynor & Co., of St. Louis, western agent of the Walter A. Wood Self-Binder Co., and was connected with and engaged in various other firms and enterprises, but was, perhaps, best known to the people as president of the Alton Savings Bank and Vice-President of the Alton National Bank.

Mr. HAYNER was married three times. His first wife Miss Laura SCOTT, of Craftsbury, Vt., the mother of his only child, Mrs. W. A. HASKELL; the second was Miss Jennie DRURY, of Highgate, Vt., in whose memory the Jennie D. Hayner Library was built. His last marriage was with Miss Kate KEITH, of Sheldon, Vt., who survives him. Mrs. H. A. FLETCHER, of this city, Mr. HAYNER's sister, is now the only surviving member of his father’s family.

In the death of Mr. HAYNER not only have the family, relatives and friends sustained a crushing personal bereavement, but the city of Alton has lost its best friend and greatest benefactor. Coming here in early manhood, dependent entirely on his own resources, without friends or influence, he rose step by step by force of energy, perseverance, honesty, and inherent ability until he became a power in the commercial world, and financier whose talents were known and honered not only in the marts of St. Louis and Chicago, but throughout the west and even extended to eastern cities. His career was a remarkable one not only in the wonderful success he attained, but in the fact that it was won not by speculation, but solely by rare business foresight and accumen, the ability to forecast the value of projected enterprises.
