SAFFORD

ELIAS SAFFORD (30 Apr 1776 - 19 Nov 1861)

Newspaper: Medina Tribune; Thurs., 21 Nov. 1861
Surnames: SAFFORD

Died - Suddenly, on the morning of Tuesday, the 19th inst. Mr. Elias Safford, of this village, in the 86th year of his age.  Mr. Safford was a native of Massachusetts.  He came to this State early in the present century, and was a citizen of Batavia previous to 1823, when he removed to Niagara county.  Turner, in his History of the Holland Purchase, says: "In 1823, Elias Safford, Esq., moved from Batavia with his large family, and became the first settler upon the north side of the creek, in T. 13 (18?), R 5. Although his pioneer advent was at a late period, he encountered all the difficulties of a life in the wilderness. He persevered, and lives to enjoy the comforts of a fine farm, and to see the wild region he had the fortitude to enter as a pioneer, mostly settled and rapidly progressing in improvement. He has been not only the founder of settlement, but he has reared in his log cabin, on the banks of the Tonawanda, an excellent family, that have gone out into the world, richly endowed with paternal precepts and examples.”

Mr. SAFFORD removed to this village a few years since, that he might enjoy the society of some of his children residing here, and during his residence with us has been highly respected as a neighbor and a citizen. His loss is felt by all who knew him. On Monday evening last he retired in his usual health; shortly after which he seemed to manifest a difficulty in breathing, which he assured his anxious companion was nothing serious, that she should have no solicitude for him as he soon would be relieved. Not satisfied, however, she arose and obtained assistance. In a few minutes, without a struggle or a groan, he passed from earth as in a pleasant sleep. His last words were, “I am at peace with Heaven and earth.” Thus terminated the life of a useful and highly respected citizen. His aged companion, who had enjoyed his society and counsels for a period of over 60 years, and a large circle of relatives and friends are left to mourn his sudden death. His funeral was attended today at 10-1/2 o’clock, at the Presbyterian Church.

Newspaper: Hanover Horton Local, Hanover, Jackson Co, Michigan
Surnames: SANDERSON, BENTLEY

Died at her residence in Hanover township, Mich., Friday, Febraury 11, 1898, Mrs. Electa, relief of the late Wm. SANDERSON. Her maiden name was BENTLEY. She was born in Shelby, Orleans county, N.Y., June 24, 1814. Her marriage occurred in March, 1837.

Early in the forties the family came into Lenawee county, Mich. In 1844 they purchased and improved a farm in Somerset, Hillsdale county, which was the family home for more than twenty years. In 1865, they removed to Hanover, locating on the farm which has since been known as the Sanderson homstead. Father SANDERSON deceased February 6, 1893, aged 83 years.

Mrs. SANDERSON belonged to an old and highly respected Central New York family; but one member of her father’s family survives her, a brother residing in Buffalo, N.Y. She was a beautiful character, kind, companionable, appreciative and generous. Her natural genial and winning manner was richly toned by her intelligent and satisfactory religious experiences; although deprived of the opportunities of public religious worship, yet her daily devotions kept her heart warm and rendered the influence of her religious character potential for good in her home and community. She connected herself with the Baptist church in the east, and came a well accredited member thereof, to her western home. Mrs. SANDERSON brought to her pioneer home her culture, piety and noble womanhood. Heroically and courageously she met the toil and privation incident to a new country. She was the willing sharer of her husband’s labors and anxieties, which she ever sought to lighten. Her neighbors soon learned her eminent qualities, and many a sorrowing heart and afflicted mother was cheered, comforted and encouraged by Mother SANDERSON’s generous womanly love and assistance.

A precious little girl, the daughter of a former wife of Mr. SANDERSON, was the object of her tender solicitude, and was carefully cultured in the graces and virtues of noble womanhood. Mother SANDERSON leaves two sons, Edwin and William Sanderson , both residents of Hanover. She reached the ripe age of more than four score years and for a long time has necessarily been retired, quietly reposing in the affection and care of her devoted children. She will be missed by a large circle of friends and acquaintances, by whom her memory will ever be revered.

Her funeral services were held at the Day school house, conducted by Rev. G.W. Tuthill; Mr. and Mrs. A. Bibbins, of Albion, with Eldridge Heath and Miss Olive Chapman ably rendered appropriate music. Her remains repose in the cemetery of Hanover village.

Surnames: SANDERSON, PEEBELS, DAY, HOWES, BENTLEY

William SANDERSON Died February 6th, 1893, Aged 83 Years William SANDERSON was born in Wately (Whately), Mass., Sept. 27, 1810. He was twice married. His first marriage to Miss Mary PEEBELS, occurred in 1830. She deceased early in her wedded life, leaving one daughter, Janette, the mother of Mrs. Clarence DAY, of Liberty, and Mrs. James HOWES, of Blissfield, Mich. In March, 1837, Mr. SANDERSON was married to Miss Electa BENTLEY, of Shelby, Orleans Co., N.Y., who survives her husband, and with his venerable companion he leaves two sons, Edwin and William, both residents of Hanover (Mich.).

This aged couple have passed more any fifty years of married life together. Father and Mother SANDERSON were pioneers of Michigan, having moved here when the country was new, they encountered all of the hardships incident to a new country, and in company with several other families, they left their eastern homes and traveled overland to their new home in the wilds of Michgian. In 1844 they purchased a farm in the town of Somerset, which they improved and made for themselves a pleasant home, where they lived until the year 1865, when they moved to their present home in Hanover.

In early life Father SANDERSON was impressed with the teaching of the Universalist church, and after a candid study of the Word for a life time remained firm in his faith. His last days were peaceful and happy. He was often seen reading the Bible, and its teachings found expression in his daily life. In his last brief illness he knew that his days were numbered, but expressed no unwillingness to go. He was a kind, an obliging neighbor, upright in all his business relations, respected by his family, and the entire community in which he lived. His funeral services were conducted by Rev. Tuthill of Hanover.

Looking on thy face so peaceful,
Could we wish thee back again?

SERVOSS

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 16 Sep 1915
Surnames: SERVOSS, GRAY

After dragging the canal at Main street in Albion all day Monday and up to about noon Tuesday, the body of Burt SERVOSS, the 21 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Burt SERVOSS of Highland avenue, was brought to the surface by Larry Gleason and other searchers of Medina. The young man had been missing since Saturday night and when found was clothed in an undershirt and a pair of pants.

The boy's grandfather and grandmother are the steward and stewardess on the State boat of the Barge canal and because of this his parents permitted him to take an appointment on the same boat, knowing that he would be cared for. Saturday nights the employees sometimes return to their homes and at other times remain on the boat. Young SERVOSS not being on the boat Sunday, it was thought he was at his home, and at his home it was believed he was at the boat. The boat started out Monday morning, thinking he was at Medina and would overtake them at their next stop, but his grandmother, Mrs. GRAY, found all of his clothing except the articles which were found on the body. At once the boat returned to where it had been anchored over Sunday and search was instituted with the above results.

Besides his parents, the young man is survived by one sister, Miss Vernita SERVOSS. The funeral took place from the family home yesterday afternoon, Rev. F. J. Milman officiating. The interment was in Boxwood Cemetery.

Surnames: SERVOSS, STEARNS
Bearers: TANGER, NEWMAN, LeVALLEY, YAXLEY, FARROW, BRACKENBURY

Another of Orleans’ pioneers passed away Monday evening in the death of Miss Sarah SERVOSS at her home west of Medina, at the age of 85 years. In Miss SERVOSS’ death the community loses one of the most estimable women of the county, and one whose entire life has been one of kindly deeds.

She was born in the house in which she died and which was her home for more than half a century. Her father, the late Christopher SERVOSS, came to this vicinity at the time of the construction of the original Erie canal and in 1820 erected a log cabin on the site where the homestead now stands. He lived the life of a pioneer in the strictest sense, not only hewing the logs for his home but in the tilling of the soil and the raising of his family.

Miss SERVOSS, the eldest, became identified with church work at an early age and through her long life gave liberally in support of many religious and charitable movements. She enjoyed the reputation of being the best speller in the county, and in her early days, so famed had her achievement become that when spelling bees were a common and usual amusement she was barred from participation. Of late years she had lived a retired life but had been well and favorably known for her benefactions to worthy causes.

She leaves three nephews, Burt T. SERVOSS, of Rochester, Harry H. SERVOSS, of Medina, and Floyd L. SERVOSS of Shelby Basin; and one niece, Mrs. Jessie STEARNS, of Elgin, Ill. The funeral will be held Thursday afternoon at 2: 30 o’clock from her late home in Shelby Basin. Rev. E. M Snodgrass, of the Methodist Episcopal church, will officiate. The bearers will be Albert Tanger, Henry Newman, John LeValley, Cephas Yaxley, Benjamin Farrow and Aaron Brackenbury.

SGIORTINO

JAMES SGIORTINO (1892 - 23 Jul 1922)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 27 Jul 1922
Surnames: SGIORTINO

What has every appearance of having been a deliberate murder Sunday in the central part of the village of Albion, is engrossing the attention of county and village authorities. James SGIORTINO, 30 years of age, who has been in this country about fifteen months, and who had a wife and child in Italy, was found dead with three bullets in his body at the New York Central station at 12:30 o’clock (p.m.). The discovery was made by some boys who told the police

The present theory of the officials was that an attempt was made to rob Sgiortino and that failing in this the highwaymen shot him and becoming immediately frightened made their escape. SGIORTINO was a good workman, sober and industrious and well spoken of. So far as is known he did not have an enemy in this vicinity. No arrests have been made.
