Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 9 Apr 1874
Surnames: HENION, LOTT

LYNDONVILLE: Death has again visited our community, and in a most unusual manner. Two prominent men died on the same day - Monday - (David I. HENION and Benoni HALL) and both will be conveyed to the tomb on Wednesday. Mr. David I. HENION - whose companion died just two weeks ago - also died on Monday, at the age of fifty-five years, of the disease above named. (Note: disease was “typhoid pneumonia”). A day or two after the burial of his wife, Mr. HENION called the physician; but he went gradually down, and the family thus doubly stricken and bereaved, are mourners indeed, for whom the heart of the community can but feel the deepest sympathy.

Mr. HENION has been a resident of this town about 35 years; and always had the full confidence and respect of the community, and filled with ability and dignity many positions of trust. For about thirty years he has been a prominent member of the Presbyterian church, and a consistent Christian man. About thirty years ago, the two who thus so nearly together closed the earthly pilgrimage, became the wedded companions of life. It seems to the writer superfluous to say more of the life and character of the deceased, he was so well known throughout the county as a candid, straight-forward, reliable man. "Though dead yet he speaketh." In this beautiful spring-time, he has left this world of conflict and sorrow, for the land of eternal Spring; the "Summer Land of Song."

Surnames: HERMAN, HARROD

Five occupants of an automobile were injured, one fatally, at 12:30 this morning when the car in which they were riding left the highway, rolled over and landed upside down in a ditch on Route 31 a short distance east of Gasport, and near the Root Road intersection. Fatally injured was Louis A. HERMAN, 20, Horan Road, Medina driver of the car. His death occurred from internal injuries at 6:25 this morning in the Medina Memorial Hospital where he was taken following the accident.

Others who received injuries were: Richard Metz, 19, 348 South Ave. Medina, who is in Medina Memorial Hospital suffering from severe contusions about the body and a spinal injury. His condition was reported as 'good' this morning at the Hospital. Horace Kepner, 22, Knowlesville who suffered severe cuts about the face, arms and body, a punctured left elbow, lacerated left side of his face and ear lobe and a cut lip.

The Niagara County Sheriff’s Dept. said today that the 1951 Mercury sedan driven by HERMAN was traveling east when the driver lost control of the car. HERMAN did not regain consciousness prior to his death, but other occupants said he apparently became blinded by the lights of an approaching car. The car left the highway and during the efforts to bring it back on the road it caught the shoulder and overturned. HERMAN, Metz and Baubie were riding in the front seat and thrown clear of the car. The other two passengers were in the rear seat and remained in the vehicle, according to the Sheriff’s report. The group of young men was returning home toward Medina after a drive around the vicinity including a visit to Lockport. The car was demolished.

The dead youth, Herman, is an ex-Marine, enlisting in the Marine Corps Reserve in Jan. 1956 and getting his discharge last December. He was born in Medina, son of Louis G. and Elizabeth (HARROD) HERMAN. Surviving besides the parents are a sister, June, at home, and four brothers, Valdo, Carlyle, Bernard and Gordon, all of Medina.

A telegram was received this morning by William BENNETT, announcing the death, at Greensburg, Kansas, of William HEVENOR, a well known Medina man who had been visiting in the West for a year or so.

Mr. HEVENOR had been ill, of grip, for only a little over a week. Mr. EVENOR was born in Medina about fifty years ago and spent the greater part of his life here, for the most of the time as a retail salesman in various lines of business. He was generally accounted by his employers as the best all around salesman who ever stepped behind a counter in Medina.

Of late years he has been engaged mainly in looking after his property interests. The death of his wife occurred some years ago.

The surviving family consists of his mother, who is nearly ninety years old and resides with her daughter, Mr. HEVENOR's only sister, Mrs. C. S. (Ella) WINCHESTER, at Hutchinson, Kansas. No arrangements for the funeral are yet known here.

Medina Man Burned To Death In Garage Fire Here Today
Charles HILL, well known Medina man burned to death in his automobile in the garage in the rear of his home 729 Church street, shortly before one o'clock today. The deceased, a well known resident of Medina and for many years an employee of A. L. Swett Iron Works until his retirement a few years ago, was found seated in the driver’s seat of his automobile which with the garage was engulfed in flames when the Fire Department was called.

Origin of the fire is undetermined, however, it is evident that it started inside of the garage, according to Fire Chief Ralph W. WHITING. An oil heating unit, installed in a round oak heater in the garage for heating purposes when the garage was used as a work room, had a leaky connection, the investigation revealed, as an accumulation of oil had seeped into the floor and beneath the floor of the garage. It is theorized, Chief Whiting said, that after a fire started inside of the garage, the elderly man opened the garage doors and attempted to remove his automobile from the burning building. The ignition key was turned on, as Mr. Hill sat at the wheel. He was practically burned beyond recognition.

A supply of kerosene for the stove, a fifty-gallon drum, a short distance from the stove, abetted the fire when its seams broke loose from the excessive heat, Chief WHITING said, and gasoline from the tank of the car also leaked out.

The garage is approximately fifty feet from the house. Mrs. (Catherine C.) HILL is confined to bed by illness. The firemen attached a tow to the car and pulled it from the flaming building and discovered Mr. HILL seated in car. A call to Coroner ELLIS of Albion was made and he conducted an investigation; assisting in the investigation are Medina Police and Fire Departments. The body was removed to Hartt Funeral Home. Coroner ELLIS, issued a certificate of accidental death by burning.

DR. HENRY CLAY HILL (29 Sep 1832 - 8 Feb 1901)

Newspaper: Unknown
Surnames: HILL, BACON, POOLE, DUGAR

Henry Clay HILL, M.D. died at his home, 113 West Ave., this city*, at a few minutes after 1 o'clock this morning in the 69th year of his age. Dr. HILL had been a sufferer from acute Brights’ Disease for several months but he failed very rapidly within the last few days. His demise will be sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends in this city and in Western New York, whose respect and regard he won by a life which was lived in an exemplary Christian manner.

Dr. Henry C. HILL was born in the village of Orwell, Vermont, on September 29, 1832 and he passed the first five years of his live in the place of his birth. In 1837 his parents came to this state and settled in the town of Yates, Orleans County. Dr. HILL obtained his early education in the famous old Yates Academy. After his graduation he taught school for a time and then entered the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor in 1856, for the study of his chosen profession of medicine. He graduated with honors from this famous seat of learning in 1858, and went to Medina, where he began the practice of medicine. Those were the days when political strife seemed leading swiftly to a deadlier clash and when President Lincoln called for 300,000 men "for the war,' Dr. Hill gave up his growing practice and entered the service of his country as a member of the 29th N.Y. Vols. He was made assistent general surgeon with the rank of First Lieutenant. This regiment was the famous fighting force which was commanded by the gallant and idolized Col. Peter A. Porter, afterwards known to the end of the war as the 8th N.Y. Heavy Artillery.

Dr. HILL served until the end of the war, when he received an honorable discharge and came back to take up the peaceful practice of his profession. He settled in the town of Somerset, in this county, where he remained, and member of the community for the next 10 yrs. He removed to this city in 1877 and spent the remainder of his life here, honored and respected by all who knew him. He married Julia A. BACON the daughter of Allen BACON of Ridgeway, on October 13th, 1859 and she survives him. He also leaves one daughter, Mrs. Elmer E. POOLE, of this city; one brother Watson HILL, of Yates, Orleans county and a sister, Mrs. Erastus DUGAR, of Johnson's Creek, this county, also survive him. Dr Hill was one of the earliest members of the Niagara County Medical Society; a member and for many years medical examiner of Lockport Council Royal Arcanum; a member of Sprout Post, G.A.R. and Geneses Commondery, Knights Templar. He was a staunch Republican. He was appointed city health officer under Mayor Darrison for two years.

HITCHCOCK

DANIEL HITCHCOCK (Feb 1837 - 22 Jun 1912)

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, 6/22/1912
Surnames: HITCHCOCK, MOORE, HUGHES

Well, happy and as always jovial and friendly, Daniel HITCHCOCK yesterday greeted many of his friends, in various parts of the village. Today he is dead. Mr. HITCHCOCK had retired from active work and spent his time in travel or in his handsome home on West Center street, but of late he has taken great interest in his fine garden and for some days had put in more hours at work there than he should have done. Yesterday morning he had a violent attack of heart trouble. Medical aid was summoned and everything possible done to aid him, but he became rapidly worse until his death occurred at about nine o’clock this morning.

Mr. HITCHCOCKwas born 75 years ago. At an early age he entered the employ of the N. Y. C. R. R. and after service at various points he was given charge of the station at Knowlesville, a position which he filled for over forty years, and was considered one of the most painstaking and reliable agents in the employ of the company. Again and again he was offered positions of prominence with the company, but he was attached to his home and his lifetime friends and preferred to remain where he was. During his long service he saw many changes in the railroad business, the introduction of telegraph despatching, the air brake, air train signals, the interlocking switch, the automatic coupler, the vestibuled train, dining car service, the sleeping car and a host of other improvements.

He was a man of wide reading and always thoroughly posted on current events, and was a conversationalist and companion he had few equals. He had stored away an inexhaustable fund of good stories and incidents and his comments were always pertinent and jolly, yet always kindly. A large number of young men made their start in practical life at the Knowlesville station and to these he was always a kind friend and adviser and the friendships formed there continued through life. Early in life he joined the Baptist Church and had always been a faithful member and active in the work of the church.

He leaves beside his widow (Ella), two sons, Louis, of Seattle, Wash., and Bert, of Niagara Falls, two daughters, Mrs. John MOORE, of Vermont, and Mrs. May HUGHES, Minneapolis, and three brothers, Dr. DeWitt HITCHCOCK, of Oxford, N. Y., Julius, of Syracuse, and Albert, of Yorkville, N. Y. The arrangement for the funeral are not yet completed.
