William LOKE, 93 Last Yates Civil War Veteran, Dies in Lyndonville

Lyndonville - William LOKE, 93, affectionately known throughout the village as Father LOKE passed away Tuesday afternoon April 16, ay his home on Eagle Street.

One of the oldest inhabitants of the Town of Yates, and the last of the Civil War veterans, 'Father' LOKE has had a long and interesting life. Born in Galen, Wayne County, N.Y. on July 14, 1846, he has lived the greater part of his life in Yates township, where he was a farmer by occupation, until he retired from active work.

He married Miss Helen RUSSELL of Ridgeway in November, 1865. Five children were born to this marriage, four of whom are still living; three sons, Harvey of Waterport, William Jr., of Ridgeway, Edward of Storm Lake, Iowa, and one daughter, Mrs. Mary ROBBINS, West Lake Road. There are also seven grandchildren and twelve great-grandchildren. Mrs. LOKE died in 1920, and a few years later Mr. LOKE married Miss Mary TAYLOR of Lyndonville, who survives him.

As to his Civil War service, records show that he enlisted in 1864 Company H, 9th New York Heavy Artillery, Army of the Potomac. He served on year and three months. He was in the battles of Cold Harbor, Petersburg and Monocacy Junction, during which latter encounter both sides lost 800 men. He has often related war tales and remembered seeing President Lincoln and General Grant. For the last several years 'Father" LOKE has been the special guest of honor at Memorial Day services since he was the last of the old veterans in this part of Orleans County.

He gave his church preference as Methodist, and his political affiliation was Republican. He was the oldest member of Yates Lodge No. 675 F & A. M, having become a Mason in 1879. The Grand Lodge of New York State presented to him a fifty years service medal, a keepsake he greatly prized. Although his strength failed gradually with his declining years, it can be said he had fairly good health in spite of his advanced age. His last illness lasted only about ten days.

The body is at Smith's Funeral Home, where funeral services will be conducted Friday afternoon at 2:30. It is expected that this will be a Masonic funeral. Rev. Louis Falk of the Baptist Church will officiate. Burial will be in Lynhaven Cemetery.
