The general esteem in which the late Mr. TAMBLIN was held, makes it fitting that we add the following to the notice published last week: Mr. William S. TAMBLIN was born in Rutland, Jefferson county, N. Y., Nov. 25, 1822, where he remained till 1849, when he removed to Medina, which he made his residence till 1879. He then moved to Lincoln, Neb., where he died March 20th 1885, leaving a wife, and one son. Mr. TAMBLIN was widely known through this community. He was a man of more than ordinary enterprise and influence, and of incorruptible integrity. He was a member of the Presbyterian church, a faithful attendant both at the Sabbath services and prayer meetings, and for many years one of the trustees of the society. In his brief residence in Lincoln, he has won the same confidence and respect which was given him here. All who know him will say a good man has gone.

Obituary---Mrs. Mary CORNISH THAYER
On Thursday, Jan. 2, Mrs. Mary CORNISH THAYER died in Rochester, whither she had gone a few months since for the treatment and care available for her there in the unsettled condition of her mind. Born in December, 1819, she was one of a family of six brothers and six sisters, all but two of whom grew up to maturity. Married in her early womanhood to Elbridge Gerry THAYER she came with her family to this country fifty-three years ago, having resided the greater part of the time in this place, where Mr. THAYER died twenty-five years ago.

Of her four children three survive, Mrs. Morell DATES and Mrs. John MacLEAN of Lyndonville, and George D. THAYER of Point Breeze. One daughter, the wife of Harry MOORE of Lyndonville, died a few years since. Two sisters survive her, Mrs. Sarah HERRING of Syracuse, and Mrs. Helen BROOKS of Chicago, with fourteen grandchildren, and twenty-five great-grandchildren.

Mrs. THAYER was widely known in all this region as a nurse, having acted in that capacity in many families, until obliged to forego the work by the infirmities of advancing age. As was the case with the sixth President of the United States, John Quincy Adams who died at the age of eighty-one, as she retired to her room in the early evening she was often heard in recent years repeating the prayer of her childhood:

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
And if I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

And so she fell asleep.

Four of her grandsons acted as bearers at her burial in Lynhaven Cemetery. Among those in attendance upon the funeral of Mrs. THAYER on Saturday were Messrs. George, Earl and Ernest THAYER of Point Breeze, Mr. and Mrs. Henry BAKER of La Salle, and Mr. and Mrs. AMES of Knowlesville.

Surnames: THOMAS, ALBONE, BATES, HOWE, WHEELER

Mrs. Charles E. THOMAS died yesterday at the home of her husband, east of Millville, of scarlet fever of the most severe type, contracted of her little daughter, Onalie, notice of whose death and funeral appeared in yesterday’s Daily Journal. Mrs. THOMAS' illness was of short duration. Everything that medical science and skill could suggest was done, anti-toxins were employed, but she sank rapidly to her death as above stated.

Mrs. THOMAS was but twenty-seven years old and was, before her marriage, Miss Jessie HOWE, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward HOWE, and was a young woman of many accomplishments and highly esteemed by all who knew her. Her death is a shock to a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. She leaves, beside her husband and parents, one daughter, Marion Irene, and one son, Arthur Chester, three sisters, Mrs. James BATES, Mrs. Albart WHEELER, of this place, Elizabeth ALBONE, of Lyndonville, and four brothers, Edward and William, of Millville, and John and Thomas of Barre.

The funeral took place this morning from the house, the burial being in Millville Cemetery.

How the little child became infected with the disease is not known. There is no knowledge of her having been exposed to the disease. The dwelling in which the family live has been remodeled this Spring and it is known that, some twenty-seven years ago there were four cases of scarlet Fever in the house, one of them being Mr. Thomas himself, when he was a boy, and three of his brothers and sisters. There is a theory that disinfection not being so thorough in those days as now, germs may have lain dormant all of these years only to be stirred up by the tearing out of partitions, etc., and set free to infect the occupants of the house. This, of course, is merely a theory.

IRVING M. THOMPSON (15 Mar 1831 - 22 MAr 1905)

Newspaper: Orleans Republic, Wed, Mar 1905, Page 2
Surnames: THOMPSON, BRONSON, MOSHER, TAYLOR, WARNER

Sudden Death of One of Albion's Prominent and Most Useful Citizens.
Irving M. THOMPSON, for over half a century one of the foremost citizens of Albion, died at the family home on Ingersoll street on Wednesday evening last, aged 74 years. Although he had been subject to sick spells more or less frequent for a year or two past, no one apprehended that he was drifting into a dangerous condition, and the news of his death came to the people with a startling suddenness. The chief cause of death was an affection of the heart.

Mr. THOMPSON was born in Verona, N. Y., in 1831, and removed with his parents to the town of Carlton while a boy. In 1852 he came to Albion and entered the office of Judge Bessac as a law student. Four years later, at the age of 25 years, he was admitted to the bar and began practice with the late Chas. H. Holmes. Subsequently he had as partners at different times Willard F. Warren, Edwin Porter and Seth S. Spencer, and when his two sons were admitted to the bar they joined him in composing a firm which became known as Thompson & Sons. In 1862 he enlisted for the war and went to the front with the 17th Independent Battery, which was recruited in this county by Capt. George T. Anthony, and of which Mr. THOMPSON was elected a lieutenant. He was shot in the thigh at City Point and remained with the Battery until mustered out in June, 1865. That year he was elected district-attorney of Orleans county and served for three years. He was appointed postmaster of Albion under Grant's second administration and held office for four years. In 1880 he became a member of the Board of Education and for 25 years he had served the people in that capacity, being clerk of the Board for the past 15 years. He was also one of the managers of the State Industrial School at Rochester through appointment by Gov. Odell. In politics he was a republican and was a member of the first delegated convention ever held in this county. Always a strong party man, he was an influential factor in the councils of his party, and yet his loyalty to party never blinded his eyes nor hampered his independent action as a citizen. For many years he was prominent in the work of the Historical Society, serving as its president for some time. He was also one of the trustees of the Swan Library Association. He had been identified with the Masonic fraternity for many years. he was a lover of good literature and was familiar with the works of the best authors. As a lawyer he occupied a prominent place; as a public speaker he was heard with interest; as a citizen he met his duties intelligently. In his domestic life he was kind and affectionate and made his home to be 'a castle wherein love reigned.

Strong in his friendships, warm and generous in his impulses, charitable in his judgments, public spirited and progressive in municipal affairs, kind and considerate in his treatment of all men, genial and sunny in temperament, he was a man whose death makes a real loss to the community. Well does the writer remember the words of cheer and encouragement spoken to him by Mr. THOMPSON thirty years ago, when as a young man he was battling with the problems of a journalistic career. He was a member of the Grand Army post here and his spirit of comradeship for the old soldiers was peculiarly strong. Among the most enjoyable events of his life were the annual reunions of the 17th Battery boys, which he never missed. He delivered, in 1869, the first Memorial Day address ever given in Albion. Memorial Day was to him a sacred occasion and he shared in its observance with becoming reverence. At the Memorial exercises two years ago he read a poem, 'The Boys Across the River', written by his brother Lloyd, also a soldier. We called at his home to get the poem for publication and found him in his garden, where he delighted to be after nature began its resurrection work in the spring. He recited the poem to us with dramatic emphasis and his voice trembled and his eyes moistened as he repeated the closing lines:

"And now for us who still remain the march will soon be ending,
The lapping waters on the sands mark where our paths are trending;
And may we, when the order comes, without a sigh or shiver,
March trustingly to join the boys, the boys across the river."

Mr. THOMPSON was married in 1865 to Melissa WARNER, who survives him with three children--Warner, Frederic M. and Mrs. Edith TAYLOR of Bradford, Pa. He also leaves one brother, Edwin D. THOMPSON and two sisters, Mrs. Ellen MOSHER and Mrs. C. A. BRONSON. The funeral was held from the house on Saturday afternoon, Rev. Dr. Dunham officiating, and was largely attended by the Masonic fraternity, the county Bar Association, the Board of Education and the Grand Army veterans. The bearers were W. C. Ramsdale, O.H. Taylor, S. H. Taylor, I. S. Signor, A. W. Barnett and E. L. Wage."

Mr. THORPE was born in Cayuga county, this state, March 14th, 1822, and came to Knowlesville with his parents before he was ten years old. Thus he was a pioneer in this section, knowing both the privations and the pleasures of those early days. For seventy-five years his home had been on the one farm, now owned by his son, M. E. Thorpe. He was granted the desire of his heart in that he was able to be active until the end. He was fond of busying himself with such things as clever hands can find to do about a country home - the garden in the season, and at all times putting the needed screw or nail in place. He was a social kindly spirit and interested children and adults as well with stories of early days and ways. He could tell of the Revolutionary times, things he himself had heard as a boy from his grandfather, a soldier in that war. Only the day before he died he called upon many of his Medina friends and took a drive about town.

Funeral services were held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. S. A. COOK, Monday afternoon, and the body borne to its resting place in Boxwood cemetery. He passed away from earth respected by neighbors, loved by friends. He was the last to go of a family of seven brothers and sisters.

Surnames: THURSTON

SUDDENLY CALLED AWAY,
S. B. THURSTON Struck by an Express Train and Instantly Killed.
     Monday afternoon Stephen B. THURSTON, an old and highly esteemed resident of this town, was almost instantly killed by the cars at this station. The particulars of the sad event are as follows:

     On the afternoon in question Mr. THURSTON went to the depot with a friend. He visited the freight house, where he remained a short time, when he started to return to the depot. Descending the steps of the platform, a strange fatality seems to have led him to abandon the path and to cross the freight track to the main line. Mr. THURSTON was very deaf, and this infirmity, together with the noise made by the outgoing accommodation, prevented his hearing the approach of the Atlantic Express, which came thundering along at the rate of six or seven miles an hour. The fireman of the express and others shouted to the doomed man with no avail. A moment and the pilot of the locomotive threw his feet forward, while at the same time his head hit the pilot beam, producing concussion that caused almost instant death. The body was thrown to one side, when it was at once surrounded by people axious to learn if the shock had been fatal. A physician was hastily summoned, but the earthly life of the old man was gone beyond recall. The body was placed in the depot, whence it was conveyed to the family residence on Park Street.

     Mr. THURSTON was seventy-one years of age, and had been a resident of this town for sixty-three years. He was a man of genial presence and generous nature, and enjoyed the love of many friends. He leaves a wife, three sons and one daughter.      The funeral of the deceased will be held this afternoon

Newspaper: Unknown
Surnames: TOMS

Liverpool, Oswego, Nov. 11. - George Ecker, who was killed in the wreck at Liverpool last Tuesday morning, left a widow of his bride of three weeks. Ecker was 21 years old and lived up to the time he entered the employ of the New York Central railroad, three years ago, with his parents in Hannibal. His father, Lawrence Ecker, has held the position of section foreman on the Hannibal division more than a quarter of a century.

Young Ecker brought his young wife to his city and they boarded at No. 165 West Sixth street. They made many friends and were highly esteemed. It is doubtful if there was a more popular young man in the employ of the Central company. His father was among those who went to the scene of the wreck that morning, but he had no idea that his son had been fatally injured until he arrived at Liverpool.

John Miller, the engineer of the passenger train on which Ecker was the fireman, is one of three brothers who have spent their lives in the employ of the Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg Railroad company. John is the first to meet with an accident or to be in a wreck of any kind.

Mail Agent *Milton F. Toms, who was killed, ran into this city for nearly thirty years. He was well known and had a large circle of friends. Employes of the Oswego Postoffice attended the funeral, held at Lyndonville Thursday. (*NOTE: Mr. Toms given name was Millard, not Milton.)

Mrs. Nellie Ryan TUCKER, wife of Mr. Smith TUCKER, died at her home on West avenue Monday night, October 10. After an illness of about two years duration, the sufferings from which were borne by her with a patience that leaves with her family hollowed memories of the sick room, the end came quietly as her spirit went to join the loved ones gone before.

She was the fourth daughter of the late John and Hannah RYAN, and was born at Little Falls, N. Y., on August 3rd, 1842. Her parents, after a temporary residence there, returned to this village when she was one year old and, since then, her entire life has been passed here. An earnest Christian woman, she has been a faithful member of the Methodist Episcopal Church from childhood, and active in its work so long as her health permitted.

Her attachment to her friends was ever strong, and they always found a welcome in her home, with the cheery greeting she was wont to give. It was in the home life where her character was best known. She was devoted to her family and their interests were always her greatest care. Of a kindly affectionate nature, she was a faithful mother, whose happiness was found within the family circle, where her presence and influence were of so great moment to her dear ones. How truly of her it could be said, "She looketh well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.’’

Of her parent’s large family but three sisters and one brother are now living - Mrs. Kate VanDUSEN, of Rochester, Mrs. Albert J. HILL, Miss Imogene Ryan and Fred C. Ryan of this place. For her husband, her sons - John B. and Albert H., her daughters - Jean and Kate L., together with her sisters and brother, the deep sympathy of all their friends is extended in this great sorrow.

Surnames: TUTTLE, JOHNSON, VOSLER, SPAULDING

Lyndonville - Wilson TUTTLE, who was so badly injured three weeks ago, died suddenly last Friday evening, of heart failure. Deceased was born at the town of Camillus, Onondaga Co., N.Y. February 18, 1820. He came with his father's family to Wilson, Niagara Co., in 1834, and to this town, in 1840. Was married January 24, 1850, to Cornelia, eldest daughter of Stephen B. JOHNSON. He leaves a brother, Ira TUTTLE, of Iowa and two sisters, Mrs. VOSLER, and Mrs. Spaulding, and two sons and two adopted daughters. These, and a large circle of relatives and friends, will deeply mourn his sudden death. The Presbyterian Church has lost one of her most substantial supporters and faithful members. Mr. TUTTLE will be remembered by many as an accomodating neighbor and helping friend. An incident of his early life - the first boat launched on the Erie Canal had on board sixteen babies, of which Mr. T. was one. Mr. TUTTLE was a man of indomitable energy in private and public business. The funeral was largely attended on Monday, at the residence, conducted by the pastor, Rev. E.W. Twichell. Mrs. TUTTLE, who was also injured, is gaining. The death of her husband, to whom she was entirely devoted, will be a fearful blow to her.

(NOTE: Mrs. Vosler was Mrs. Jacob (nee Mary TUTTLE) VOSLER. Mrs. SPAULDING was nee Sarah TUTTLE who married first Charles BROWN, then ____ SPAULDING. Two sons were Horace and Walter. Adopted daughters were Sarah nee BULLEN (daughter of Wilson's deceased sister and husband, Jane and Jehiel BULLEN) who took the name TUTTLE and Sarah's sister Anna (nee BULLEN) TUTTLE (married Charles DAY). Ira was of Mt. Ayr, Ringgold, IA. Wilson and Cornelia also had two daughters who died young.)


Newspaper: Medina Tribune Aug 8, 1889

A sad accident occurred Sunday afternoon to Mr. and Mrs. Wilson TUTTLE. They had been to call on Aunt Sally DANIELS, who is sick at Mr. Edmonds, and returning about seven o'clock, the horse became frightened at the railroad crossing and wheeled about, upsetting the carriage. Both were badly injured. Mr. TUTTLE's face was cut and he sustained a compound dislocation of the ankle. Dr. Fraser attended to the injured ones and hopes are entertained that Mr. TUTTLE's limb can be saved. Mrs. TUTTLE is considerably bruised, but not critically hurt. A similar accident happened last fall by the same horse and nearly at the same place, with Mrs. TUTTLE and her sister, Selina JOHNSON, in the buggy, and they had been to visit the same aged lady, who was then sick as now, and Mrs. TUTTLE was then laid up for several weeks.)
