SGT. ANTHONY L. STACHEWICZ (16 Mar 1923 - 23 Aug 1951)

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, (date unknown)
Surnames: STACHEWICZ, LESCZYNSKI, KUROWSKI

A Medina mother received the tragic news of the death of her soldier son while attending the wedding of a nephew in Buffalo on Friday. While seated at the dinner table Mrs. Florence STACHEWICZ of Allis Road received a cablegram from the War Department informing her that her son, Sgt. Anthony L. STACHEWICZ had died in Germany on August 23 as a result of injuries received while serving with the Army of Occupation.

The Medina man, veteran of two years in Germany during World War II, received fatal injury when he was standing in the rear of an army truck and struck his head on the wall of an underpass receiving a skull fracture. Mrs. STACHEWICZ stated that the War Department had informed her that the body of her son is being returned to Medina by the first available transport.

Mrs STACHEWICZ said today that she had last seen her son three years ago and that she had had a dream of him Monday, two days before his death. In her dream her son had returned home, and she felt that meant he would soon be home, since his three-year enlistment period would have been completed in September.

The Medina soldier, who attended Medina schools, first entered the service on Feb. 19, 1943 and was given an honorable discharge at Fort Dix, N. J., on Dec. 24, 1945, returning home on Christmas Day. Following his discharge he was employed for three years by a local contractor. Upon his reenlistment he asked for immediate overseas duty in Germany.

Besides his mother he leaves a sister, Mrs. Bernice LESCZYNSKI of Medina and three brothers, Joseph and Raymond of Medina and John of Lyndonville, as well as several nieces and nephews.


Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal (Sept. 1951)

Military funeral services and a Solemn Requiem mass at Sacred Heart Church will accompany the burial here on Saturday of a Medina soldier, veteran of both World War II and the German occupation periods with over six years of total service, who died as the result of injuries received while he was riding on a military truck last month.

The body of Sgt. Anthony L. STACHEWICZ, 28, will arrive in Medina tonight and will rest at his late home on the Allis Rd. until Saturday. His death occurred in the 10th Field Hospital, Wurzburg, Germany on August 23 resulting from a brain concussion. The day previous to his death he had been standing in the back of a truck when his head struck against an underpass near Kitzinger, Germany.

Surviving are his mother, Mrs. Grace STACHEWICZ; three brothers, Raymond, Joseph and John, Jr.; one sister, Mrs. Bernice LESCZYNSKI; his grandmother, Mrs. Joseph KUROWSKI, and several uncles and aunts. Services are scheduled Saturday at 10 a. m. from his late home, with a Solemn Requiem mass at Sacred Heart Church at 10:30. Military burial will be in Sacred Heart Cemetery.

At the time of his death, the Medina soldier served with the 1st Engineer Combat Battalion. He had spent two years and 10 months in Germany during the occupation period and spent four years in China and Japan during World War II.

Surnames: STANTON

Mrs. Kate STANTON, an old resident of this village, died at the Mary Louise Hospital last Thursday at midnight, of cancer. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon with interment in Boxwood Cemetery.

Mrs. STANTON's death has revealed many peculiar characteristics in her past life, and the names of some of the beneficiaries of her will have created somewhat of a sensation in town. Mrs. Stanton had lived alone for years in a big brick house on West avenue, and seldom, if ever, did her few remaining relatives call to see her. Neighbors who had come to know her well were wont to bring her many delicacies, and to them, it now seems, she has left part of her estate estimated at from $15,000 to $20,000.

Some of the local beneficiaries are: Miss Jessie Castle, $500; Mrs. Maxwell, $500; R. Stanley Brainard, $500; Mrs. B. J. Cummings, $500; Thomas Rooney, $2,500; Miss Melsa Cummings, piano and quantity of household effects. Mr. Rooney, who had been employed by Mrs. Stanton for a number of years, in addition to money, is given the liquor store that she owned in Buffalo. George A. Newell was named as the executor.

Newspaper: Medina Daily Journal, Tues., Nov. 22, 1910
Surnames: STARKWEATHER

Seth STARKWEATHER, a well known Eagle Harbor resident, was run over by an east bound car of the Buffalo, Lockport and Rochester Railway Company at Allen's crossing about eight o'clock last night, and instantly killed. The remains were brought to Medina and taken to the undertaking rooms of O'Rielly & Son.

Mr. STARKWEATHER went to Albion yesterday afternoon, and came back to visit his son who resides between Knowlesville and Eagle Harbor, a short distance from the Allen crossing station. Mr. STARKWEATHER stayed some time at his son's residence and left with them, he to take a car back to Eagle Harbor and his son and daughter-in-law to Albion. As they were standing near the shelter station, the car approached from the west, and, in some unexplainable manner, the elder man stepped onto the track as though he intended to board the car from the opposite side. Before he could get off the track the car ran onto him, grinding him underneath the wheels.

Just as soon as possible the motorman backed up and he and the conductor and a few passengers ran to the rescue, but the injuries were too serious and the man was dead when picked up. The body was brought to Medina, and Coroner Charles E. FAIRMAN, of Lyndonville, notified. Dr. FAIRMAN reviewed the remains, and has ordered an inquest, which is being held at the village hall this afternoon. Until the real circumstances are brought out at the inquest the blame for the death cannot be placed.

Deceased was fifty-seven years of age and is survived by a widow (Jennie) and three sons. In tomorrow's issue the proceedings and testimony taken before the Coroner will be published.

Coroner’s Verdict, Medina Daily Journal, Wed., Nov. 30, 1910

CORONER FAIRMAN RENDERS VERDICT IN THE STARKWEATHER CASE.

Coroner Charles E. Fairman, of Lyndonville, has rendered his verdict in the case of the death of Seth E. STARKWEATHER, who was killed at Allen's crossing east of Knowlesville, on the 21st instant. The Coroner says that death was due to being hit by a trolley car of the B., L.& R. Company, but attaches no blame to the motorman, who did not see the man standing beside the track until the car was almost upon him, and it was then running about fifty miles an hour.

Verdict

I find that Seth E. Starkweather, of Eagle Harbor, New York, came to his death at Allen’s crossing, west of Eagle Harbor, November 21, 1910, about 7:45 P. M. from a compound comminuted fracture of the skull and the resultant brain injuries. Said fracture and results having been produced by being struck by train 23 of the Buffalo, Lockport and Rochester Railway Company in charge of Michael J. Mahoney, motorman, and Lester O’Brien, conductor. I find no negligence on the part of Motorman Mahoney or Conductor O’Brien. I find that the accident was due to carelessness on the part of Seth E. Starkweather.

Dated. Nov. 30, 1910.
Charles E. Fairman,
Coroner.

At the home of Mr. and Mrs. John H. STEIN, who reside on a farm located about four miles south of this village, yesterday afternoon their 4 year old daughter, Nellie May, was playing in an upper room of their residence while the mother was busily engaged in one of the lower rooms. Mrs. STEIN heard her daughter scream and running upstairs found the child's body enveloped in flames. She grabbed her in her arms and, hurrying downstairs, ran out on the front steps. There chanced to be an automobilist going by the house who stopped his machine and ran up and threw a robe around the body of the girl. He made a hurried run with the child to the office of Dr. J. Fred Eckerson at Shelby Center, when everything possible was done to save the child's life. She was made as comfortable as possible and removed to her home, where she died at a late hour last night.


Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 4 July 1912

Nellie May STEIN, the infant daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John H. STEIN, who resided on the Albert R. Martin farm in the town of Shelby, was fatally burned about seven o'clock Sunday evening. The little child, who was but four years of age, was discovered by her mother in an upper room in the house, her clothes all ablaze and in terrible agony. Mrs. STEIN hastily grabbed the child and ran down stairs when her cries attracted the attention of Charles Rourick who was passing with his automobile, and who stopped his machine, and seizing his lap robe, rushed to the house and wrapped the child in it, extinguishing the flames. He then started for medical assistance with the child in his car. Little real relief could be given the child and she was removed to her home where she died early Monday morning.

The little girl was playing with matches and in some manner lighted them, setting fire to her clothing. Dr. Eckerson issued a certificate of death from accidental injuries, and the funeral occurred Tuesday afternoon, with burial at Royalton, N. Y.

She passed her early years and grew to womanhood in her native county. When twenty-two years of age she, with her parents, John and Catherine DYGART, moved to the town of Shelby, Orleans Co., N.Y.

An affectionate mother has gone from her home and household cares into the presence of the Master, a faithful wife has been called from the duties of this life into the presence of the Most High.

Hers was one of those rare, kindly, wholesome natures who quietly make the world better for their being in it, while her practical Christianity was ever an inspiration to all who knew her. Her church, her friends, her neighbors will sadly miss her cheery presence, but it is in the home where she so nobly fulfilled every duty of wife and mother that her loss will be only the more deeply felt as the days go by.

Truly it could be said of her, "She rested sweetly in the everlasting arms" that she knew were able to keep through deepest trials. She was a mother whose life will be sweet to be remembered by her children, because of its beauty of character, savoring so strongly of Him whose example while on earth she loved to follow, teaching not by precept alone but by practicing such patience, such self-denial, such long-suffering as can only be shown by those who have close communion with the blessed Master. Surely, such a mother's life can only bring to her children perfect trust and a surity of sweet rest while she waiteth just beyond for a happy reunion with all her loved ones.

Business Man Of Albion A Suicide. Silas STOCKTON Takes His Life While Deranged.
Albion, March 28. While suffering from an attack of grip, Silas STOCKTON one of Albion's best known business men, shot himself through the right temple in the dining room of his home in North avenue, at 8:40 o'clock this forenoon, dying almost instantly.

Waterport. Thomas STOCKTON, an old resident of this place, died at his late home last week. The following prelude to the sermon by Rev. F. E. King was so appropriate that we substitute it in preference to any comments of our own: Thomas STOCKTON was born in Lincolnshire, England, April 5, 1822. His parents died when he was but six years old, leaving him to the care of a sister, Lucy, and a brother, John, both of whom he survived by many years. In 1840 he married Miss Anna GENTLE, whose demise occurred but five months ago. In 1847, he with his wife and family, then consisting of four sons, William, Henry, Albert, and Silas, started for America. At this time, the youngest child, Silas, was but six months old. After spending six weeks on the water, in coming from England to New York and proceeding onward at the slow pace at which a canal boat moves, they arrived at Albion with very little means. The comforts and advantages of the railroad system were then unknown. He was a very active and energetic man and soon made a home for his beloved ones, setting forth only the best examples before his children and bringing them up to be honest and upright men and women. In 1863 they took up their residence here, where the death of his beloved wife occurred a short time ago. Then the change in him was very noticable. He mourned and grieved her loss to the last, never afterwards seeming to value life without his companion and appearing perfectly willing to join her.

Six children mourn his loss, Silas and Henry of Albion, Albert, John, Mrs. Louise MANN and Mrs. Nettie HORNER of Carlton. It will be a source of consolation to them to reflect upon his excellent qualities, the brilliant character he possessed, and the ease and happiness he now enjoys.

Mr. STOCKWELL was the youngest of ten children and the last to leave these mortal shores for the better land. Father, mother, brothers and sisters, all gone, and he has lived alone, as it were, the last of a noble band who dared and braved the trials of pioneer life. The family came to this town in 1817, and settled on the farm now owned by William Sheldon, where also the deceased lived until a few years ago, and reared a large family, seven of whom, two sons and five daughters, live to mourn the loss of a kind father. Mr. STOCKWELL was a candid, reliable citizen, and has occupied positions of trust in the town. The family have the sympathy of all.

The last weeks of his life were ones of intense suffering, but with the same fortitude that he had met the difficulties of life he came to his death. He passed under the shadow trusting in the Christian's Savior and was pleased to depart and be at rest. Brothers Latham and Ellenwood assisted in appropriate services at the parsonage on Saturday afternoon.

The body was taken to Pultneyville, his former home, for more than thirty five years, and with appropriate service on Monday afternoon was placed beside his wife who had prededed him by one year and three months. He has left his neighbors and friends and children a life worthy of imitation.

ELIZABETH B. STOKES (13 Oct 1813 - 11 Sep 1890)

Newspaper: The Medina Tribune; Thurs., 18 Sep 1890
Surnames: STOKES, PITTS

Miss Elizabeth B. STOKES - Sister of James A. STOKES, of Lyndonville, died at his residence in that village, on the 11th inst. At the time of her decease she was nearly seventy-seven years of age and had been a resident of the town of Yates for nearly forty years. Among the people where she so long resided, she was known as "aunty" and she had the good will and sincere friendship of every person who knew her. The death of her brother's wife shortly after she became a resident of Lyndonville devolved upon her the care and charge of his four children, among whom was Mrs. E. L. PITTS, of this place, and she discharged that sacred and responsible trust in so faithful and discreet a manner as to secure from each of them their undying love and confidence. She was a christian, kind hearted and true woman, whose life was full of gracious acts, kind deeds and generous sacrifice. Indeed, all her talent, worth and virtue were used for the benefit of others, and of her it can be truly written, "life was labor and death is rest." Possessed of a cheerful disposition and even temper, no words of her ever wounded the most sensitive ear, and no action of her's ever brought sorrow to any heart.

A devoted daughter, a kind and loving sister, a patient and true mother-- for she was a true mother to the motherless children left to her charge--a sincere friend and kind neighbor has passed away, and we doubt not that her freed spirit rejoices in the perfect freedom and indescribable joys which awaits the good, pure and virtuous. She was a daughter of the Rev. James A. STOKES, one of the first rectors of St. John's Church in this place, and she had been a devoted member of that church for many years. During the latter part of her life she had been a great sufferer from the infirmities of age and maladies which were incurable, but she bore all and suffered all with uncomplaining and gentle fortitude. Her patience and resignation was so great that no complaint ever escaped her lips, and she was firm in the belief that beyond the darkest cloud the sun was still shining.

A woman like this, although her name is not recorded among the list of the world's heroines, possessed a truly heroic and brave spirit. Her example and life were ever inspiring, and she has left to her family and friends ten thousand gracious memories more precious than gold or silver. We write within bounds when we say she did not have an enemy in the world, and that there were none so poor or humble or lowly who could not at any time receive her sympathy and aid. Her memory will ever be treasured, and is a constant benediction to all who knew her.

The funeral services were conducted at the residence of her brother, on Sunday last, by the Rev. Mr. Rowe, of Lyndonville, whose remarks were eloquent, impressive, able, and impressed upon his hearers the worth and value of her gentle christian life. There was a large attendance of neighbors and friends, and many eyes unused to weeping, shed tears, for all regarded her death as a personal loss. Peacefully as she had lived she died.

''And when the sun in all his state,
Illumed the western skies,
She passed through glory's morning gates,
And walked in Paradise."
