LOUISE MOORE ( - 5 Oct 1888)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 11 Oct 1888
Surnames: MOORE

The wife of Joseph T. MOORE, of Oakfield, N. Y., formerly; and for many years, a resident of Medina, committed suicide on Friday last. The particulars are given by a correspondence as follows:

Our village was shocked on Friday to hear that Mrs. Louise Moore, wife of J. T. Moore, a produce dealer here, had shot and killed herself. Her son, Charles, aged twelve years, came home from school at noon and not finding his mother in the lower part of the house, went up stairs, and in a sleeping room was horrified to find her lying on the floor in a pool of blood. He called her by name, and as the truth flashed upon him he ran up the street weeping and notified his father and Dr. Price. Coroner Pugsley was called and viewed the body. Mrs. MOORE was found on the floor on her back with a quilt under her and a pillow under her head with a small 32 caliber rifle lying by her side. It was found that the ball penetrated her left breast, passing through and striking the wall, and it was found on the floor. Mrs. MOORE had arrayed her self in white, and that the act was the result of deliberation seemed obvious from the circumstances. There are three children, Mabel, aged 16, Charles, aged 12, and Sadie, age 3(8?). Coroner Pugsley summoned the following jury: C. H. Chamberlin, B. J. Chapman, J. L. Dunham, S. M. Calkins, 0. Root, J. Gibson, D. J. Stedman, J. F. Filley, B. Bliss, F. E. Wright. The jury viewed the body and adjourned to six o’clock at J. J. Stedman's office. The inquest disclosed the fact that the couple had not lived happily together, and that Mr. MOORE had been abusive and had ill-treated his wife till she was unable to stand it any longer. A letter found by the coroner addressed to her children left no doubt in the mind of the jury as to the cause of the act. The jury, after deliberating a short time, returned a verdict "that Mrs. MOORE took her own life, produced by abuse and ill-treatment of her husband.

- An Oakfield dispatch states that intense excitement still prevails in that village over the suicide of Mrs. MOORE. An indignation meeting was held on Monday evening when resolutions condemning MOORE and Miss JOHNSON, (the third party in the unfortunate scandal), also expressing sympathy for the bereaved family, were adopted, and a warrant charging MOORE with assaulting his wife on the day she ended her life was sworn out. Another dispatch from Buffalo states that MOORE’s wife’s relatives in that city have caused his arrest, on the strength of the letter she left, stating that he had abused her.

MURPHY

BARRY MURPHY (14 May 1873 - 11 Apr 1923)

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, 4/12/1923
Surnames: MURPHY, O’MALLEY, WALDNER

Barry MURPHY died at 10:45 last evening. Death, due to heart failure, came upon him almost instantaneous. He had concluded a few remarks as one of the guests at an anniversary gathering at Wolcottsville, and seating himself, suddenly passed away before assistance could reach him. Death followed in exactly eight weeks the sad and untimely death of his wife, and the grief of her loss is thought to have hastened his death. Last evening, accompanied by his daughters, Margaret and Katherine and Miss Mable BRUNING, who was in Mr. MURPHY’s employ at his South Academy Street home, he attended the 25th wedding anniversary of Mr. and Mrs. Henry BRUNING at Wolcottsville, the parents of Miss BRUNING. They, with other friends and relatives of the family, had enjoyed a family dinner and joined in the spirit of the occassion. Before departing for home Mr. MURPHY was called upon to make a few remarks, which in a most fitting manner he did. He concluded his remarks with the sentence, 'When I close my eyes in death, I pray that I may be laid to rest near my little German mother'. As he sat down life passed away.

Barry MURPHY, widely known throughout the state through a life of political and journalistic activity, was born near Knowlesville May 14, 1873. He was the youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. Dennis MURPHY. His early boyhood was spent at the farm home; although his early education was mostly obtained in Medina schools. He left school as a young man to accept a position with the Taylor Candy Company of Rochester in their sales department. After serving with this concern for a few years he accepted a position with the National Cash Register Company and remained in their employ for some time.

In politics he has always been a Democrat, and for several years of his life his activities were almost entirely with his party. He was secretary to Lieut. Governor CHANDLER and also to Governor DIX, and in 1913 he was appointed to the State Fair Commission by Governor Martin H. GLYNN, on which body he served for two years. He was an intimate friend of William R. HEARST and had charge of the publicity of his campaign at the time he ran for governor.

The late Mr. Murphy served two years on the Board of Education of Medina, resigning in 1913 on account of his duties on the State Fair Commission. He has always taken an active part in local politics but never aspired to hold elective office.

He has always been a keen lover of sports and for years has taken a great interest in the Medina Athletic Association and the Medina Baseball Club. He was with the International League as umpire part of one season and had served in that capacity among semi-professional clubs for many years. He has always taken more than a common interest in the affairs of Medina, and has given liberally of his time and money to make every venture a success. A faithful communicant of St. Mary’s, he has been very attentive in the performance of his religious duties and an active worker in church affairs. The deceased was a member of the local Council Knights of Columbus and a forth degree member of the order. He also had membership in the Woodmen and several professional and social organizations.

Among those who knew him best he was best known as a father, and five small children who less than two months ago were left without a mother, are now without a father. They are without one who was more than a father to them for his every interest in life was centered about his family. The little ones left behind are Margaret, Katherine, John, Robert and Barry Jr. He is also survived by a sister, Mrs. Thomas O’MALLEY of South Avenue, a brother, E. J. MURPHY of Buffalo, and his father and mother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. John WALDNER of South Avenue.

In the newspaper world, Mr. Murphy was particularly well known. For several years he published The Orleans County News, a weekly newspaper, published here in Medina. Four years ago this publication was discontinued and he has since issued a monthly publication, The Orleans County Monthly Magazine. He also was editor and publisher of the New York State Fruit Grower, a monthly trade journal of orchardists. He was local correspondent for several Buffalo and Rochester papers. He maintained an office in the Odd Fellows Building until a month ago when he had his fixtures removed to his home on South Academy Street.

Following his sudden death at Wolcottsville his remains were taken to the undertaking parlors of L A. Whited at Middleport. A coroner's inquest was held at that place this morning after which the body was removed to his late residence on South Academy Street. Mr. MURPHY had an appointment with Governor Smith at Rochester this morning.

Although funeral services have not been arranged it is thought that they will be held Saturday morning. The remains of Mrs. MURPHY are at present in Boxwood Cemetery vault, and it is probably that they will be buried at the same time in the family lot. The funeral will be held Saturday morning at ten o'clock at St. Mary's Church.
