FIRST CASE IN VILLAGE - WAS IN SCHOOL FRIDAY

Medina, Oct. 22. - Miss Mary RAYMOND, the 16 year old daughter of John RAYMOND, of Frank Street, died this afternoon of infantile paralysis. She attended High School Friday and was taken ill that morning. Her condition was not serious until this morning when her arms became paralyzed. The girl had not been out of the village for over a month and there had been no visitors from out of town at the RAYMOND home.

This is the first death in this village and there is no other case here at present so far as known. A joint meeting of the Board of Education and the Board of Health was held this afternoon and was attended by Dr. George F. ROGAN, health officer, Dr. Arthur BUGBEE, the girl’s physician and Dr. LeSEUR, of Batavia, sanitary inspector of this district. Dr. LeSeur advised that the schools be kept open as he claims that the development of any case can better be apprehended in school than if spread out over the village. The ______ gymnasium in connection with the school will be closed, however, and the police have been directed to exclude children under 16 years of age from the moving picture houses, churches and all other assemblages for two weeks.

Mr. (John) RAYMOND is the agent for the Medina Vegetable Company. The funeral, which will be private, will be held tomorrow, the Rev. M. E. Van NOSTRAND, of the Baptist Church, officiating.

Suicide of an Albion Man.
Henry REYNOLDS, for many years associated with his brother Mark in the New York Central station restaurant, in Albion, committed suicide on Friday by shooting himself in the head with a 32-caliber revolver. The bullet entered the right temple and came out through the left check severing a large blood vessel and probably killing him almost instantly, as he was dead when found lying upon a couch. Dr. Cochran was summoned, but found his services of no avail, and the coroner, who was telephoned for, considered an inquest unnecessary. A correspondent says the deceased had been for years addicted to the heavy use of laudanum and of late had been trying to stop the habit. Whether he became crazed for the want of it, or whether he had taken a dose which had upset his mind, cannot be known.

He leaves a wife (Azella J. JEWETT) and two children; one, a son (Walter), is studying medicine in New York, the other, a daughter (Helen), is a telegraph operator.

EDGAR FAYETTE RICE (19 Nov 1842 - 7 Dec 1926)

Newspaper: unknown
Surnames: RICE, DRAKE, KINGSLEY, MARTIN, QUIETT, RUSSELL

Edgar F. RICE was born at Kendall, November 19, 1842. At the age of 13 years he moved with his family to Niles, Michigan. On July 18th, 1862 at the age of 19 years, he enlisted for three years in Company 8, 17th Michigan Infantry at Detroit. He was mustered in August 26th, 1862. He was made First Sergeant which office he held with distinction throughout the Civil War.

He was wounded in the leg at Petersburg, in the side at Campbell’s Station, Tenn., and in the leg at Cold Harbor. He participated in 32 general engagements, among them being the battles of Antietam, Fredericksburg, Vicksburg, the Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor and Petersburg.

At the very beginning of the war, the 17th was plunged into the horrible realities of a pitched battle. On the crest of the mountainside behind stone walls, the enemy awaited the advance of the union forces. The orders came for the 17th to charge, when with wild cheers the regiment rushed through a storm of lead and drove the enemy from his stone defences and sent him retreating down the slope of the mountain. In the charge the 17th secured the title of the “Stone Wall Regiment” which clung to it as an honorable distinction during the war.

The 17th was engaged in the desperate battle of the Wilderness, was surrounded in dense woods by the heavy lines of the enemy and practically annihilated by the loss of nearly 100 killed and wounded and the same number taken prisoners. After this engagement the 17th practically lost its position in the brigade for want of numbers. Mr. RICE was honorably discharged and was mustered out June 3rd, 1865.

On December 25th, 1866, he married Amelia RUSSELL who died October 7th, 1922 at the completion of nearly 56 years of happy wedded life. Four children were born to this union, viz.: Mrs. Myrtie MARTIN of Henrietta, Mrs. Lizzie DRAKE of Albion, Mrs. Cora QUIETT of Wilson and Mrs. Della KINGSLEY of Wilson. There are three grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

Mr. RICE died December 7th and the funeral was held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Frank DRAKE, last Thursday, the Rev. E.A. Estey officiating. Burial at Mt. Albion Cemetery.

Surnames: RICE, BERRY

And still another has passed away from earth, and one that connects the long ago with the present, and one that resided many years in the vicinity of Millville, and whose history in Orleans county goes back to 1814. We refer to Mr. Enos RICE, who died at the house of his son in the town of Albion, April 27th, in this Centennial year, aged 86 years. Mr. RICE was born in Conway, Mass., in 1790. In his childhood he removed to Western New York, and grew to manhood in the town of Phelps, Ontario county.

In 1814 he came into the bounds of what is now Orleans county, and com- menced felling the forest on land next west of Artemas Loveland, in the now town of Albion. Subsequently he purchased and settled on the farm now owned by Homer Sherwood, near Millville, about which time he married

Alice BERRY, sister of Gardner BERRY, late of Shelby. Some thirty-five or forty years since he traded farms with Mr. Sherwood’s father, and returned to said town of Albion, where he spent the evening of life near what is known as “Porter’s Corners.” Mr. Rice was a man of many noble traits of character: honest, faithful and true in all his dealings and intercourse with others. By industry and economy he had secured more than a competency to render his declining years comfortable. He died honored and respected by all who knew him, as was evinced by the attendance at his funeral, many of whom had been companions of his younger days. Services were performed by Rev. Mr. Saxe, of Rochester.

SARAH RICE (5 Nov 1829 - 19 Apr 1874)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 23 Apr 1874
Surnames: RICE

We are called upon this week to chronicle a very painful event. Mrs. Samuel RICE, who resided on Church street, was burned so severely on Saturday afternoon, about three o'clock, that she died the following morning. Mrs. RICE was an elderly lady, mother of Mr. Samuel RICE, the grocer. She had been somewhat deranged for a long time, and on Saturday was left alone in the house for a few minutes. A girl who lives in an adjoining house noticed through a window that Mrs. RICE's clothing was ablaze, and that she was going towards a cistern pump in the house, evidently to get water with which to extinguish the fire. The girl gave the alarm in time to summon help, Mrs. RICE was cared for, as well as could be done, and the fire extinguished, which had caught in various parts of the room. She was found to be terribly burned; not blistered merely, but the flesh on the breast and bowels was burned to a crisp. The top griddles of the stove were found off, and the supposition is that she had been putting wood into it, and in bending over, her apron had caught on fire. Being deranged, she was probably unable to comprehend her situation exactly, or to use prompt means to save herself.
