Births, Deaths, Marriages from Gouverneur, NY Herald
St. Lawrence County, NY (aprox. 1864-1904)
Died, in Gouverneur, N.Y., Sunday, Sept. 3rd, 1865 at 16 minutes
past twelve pm Charles Douglas Anthony; only son of Chas. Anthony, Esq, aged 21
years, 2 months and 5 days. To the community of Gouverneur, it would seem
unnecessary to enumerate the good qualities of the deceased so well was he known
among us as a young man of great praise; of good habits and morals, of strict integrity ,
and a cheerful and obliging disposition as a friend, he was all of this and more; it
seemed impossible for him to do too much for his friend; anything he possessed was at
their disposal for the asking, and he asked few favors in return; ever ready for fun or
amusement, yet carefully shunning vicious pleasures, he might well be looked up to by
the young men of Gouverneur, as a model worthy their imitation; he possessed no sin
or boastful spirit, but there was in him, a depth of feeling and love for his friends, which
few outside of his own family had ever sounded or knew to exist. He had just
completed a thorough course of study at "Yale" college, and had returned to his native
town to reside, fitted for any station which the duties of life might call him, when death
knocked at his dwelling and took him away, in the 22nd year of his age. His
kindred are called to mourn for him but they sorrow not as those who have no hope,
believing that an all powerful God knows what is for the best and will do nothing amiss,
and being fully persuaded that they will meet again in happier climes, where no parting
To the large circle of his acquaintances and friends, I would say you have lost a good
and true friend, one who rejoiced in your pleasures, and sorrowed in your afflictions, a
friend like whom we seldom find a second.
But although Charlie has gone, he has left an example. We following may hope to
meet him hereafter "Where the assembly ne'er breaks up, And Sabbath's ne'er shall

Obituary. Died, in Gouverneur, Oct 17th, 1865, George D.
Thayer, third son of Deacon Thomas M. Thayer, aged 23 years. He was a young man
of good ability, genial nature, a cordial companion and sympathising friend.
Several incidents which ocurred during the two years which he spent in the army
deserve special notice. On one occasion as his company had started out on an
expedition - having drawn rations for five days, he joined it too late to obtain his portion.
The company had no opportunity to obtain supplies for ten days; by this time George
was suffering intensely from hunger and weakness. Having offered all of his money -
something more than five dollars - for a few 'hard tack', in vain, he improved an
opportunity to approach a soldier of another regiment, hoping to obtain a little food from
him. His surprise and joy were very great to discover in the strange soldier his own
brother Stephen! The recognition was mutual. The two brothers rushed into each
others arms. The first salutation was "Stephen, I am starving!" A few words of a
moment and they separate. Strength and hope must soon have failed but for the
brother's scanty store which furnished the most grateful repast of a lifetime. He was
very much affected on another occasion as cannon ball killed two companions in the
trench by his side and barely came short of him.
Debility, induced by privations, exposures, and especially by a wound in his left elbow
which was badly shattered in an engagement with the enemy paved the way for other
complaints - common in the army - which culminated in his death. Though he had
disposed of his effects, and told his relatives he expected to die, the blow to them was
sudden and severe. In about two weeks after he reached home from Washington,
consciousness ended almost instantly in a spasm some twenty four hours
before his death. His papers of recommendation show that he was highly
esteemed by his employers and acquaintances, both for his ability and integrity.
Married. In Mexico, at the residence of the bride's father, on
Wednesday, Dec 20th, by Rev. M. D. Kinney, Alonzo J. VanDuzee, of Gouverneur, to
Miss Nellie M. Brown, of Mexico, Oswego Co., N.Y. No cards. 'May mutual love and
friendship dear, Illuminate your path along, May blessings rich thro life's career, Crown
all your years with joy and song.' [12/20/1865]
Married. At the residence of R.K. Smith, in Gouverneur, on
Sunday Dec. 31st, 1865, by Rev. D. Simonds, Mr. Charles S. Smith, of Gouverneur, to
Miss Julia Ormiston, of Carthage. Also, at the same place and time, by the same, Mr.
Lewis Thayer to Miss Mahala C. Smith, both of Gouverneur. By this double marriage
neighbor Smith has a son and daughter well mated. Two gallant young soldiers
recently returned from the army, where they gallantly fought in those fierce battles
which resulted in the suppression of the Rebellion, and who never showed their back to
a foe or surrendered to the enemy, have been captured in Hymen's silken net. So it is:
"Peace hath its victories no less than war." The Printer was not forgotten on this
occasion and his best wishes go with the happy couples in the life pilgrimage on which
they have entered.
Double ceremony, see also record for Charles S. Smith wed to
Julia Ormiston Record idno 139. Thayler apparently married the sister of Charles,
Mahala C. Smith. Clipping reads 'At the same time and place, by the same, Mr. Lewis
Thayler to Miss Mahala C. Smith, both of Gouverneur.' Note in the referenced record
mention of military service by both Mr. Smith and Mr. Thayer. [12/15/1865]
Married. In this village, at Spencer's Hotel, 3rd inst, by Rev. D.
Simons, Alexander McCarthron, of Canada, to Miss S. Harris, of Fowler, St. Lawrence
Co, NY. [12/03/1865]
Obituary. Mary F. Dains, wife of Rev. G.G. Dains of the
Gouverneur Wesleyan Seminary, and daughter of Samuel Fay, Esq., of Wethersfield,
Vermont, died of quick consumption at the residence of her father, May 18, 1866, aged
33 years and 11 months. She was converted at the early age of 14 and
immediately united with the M.E. Church of which she remained a faithful and devoted
member until called to join the Church triumphant. She was married to Rev. G.G. Dains
in 1859. She was domestic in her habits, a 'keeper at home.' She possessed in an
eminent degree this power to make home happy - hers, from the radiance of an amiable
disposition, and a mind deeply imbued with the spirit of Christ, was an earthly paradise.
As a neighbor, she was considerate and obliging. In August, 1865, she took a severe
cold, from the effects of which she never recovered. In April last, she left her home in
Gouverneur to visit her parents in Wethersfield, hoping by the change to regain her
health. But in less than one short month her husband was summoned to witness her
departure to her home above. She died surrounded by loving friends, in full
consciousness and in holy triumph. May heaven console and provide for her bereaved
family - the heart stricken companion, and two motherless children. E.C. Bruce

Obituary. Died in Canton, Sept 13th, 1866, Mrs. Cynthia,
widow of the late Samuel Smith, formerly of this town, in the 67th year of her age. Mrs.
Smith was born in Charleston (unreadable - N.H., N.C. Newfoundland?) March 22nd,
1800, married Dec. 31, 1823, and died in Canton, N.Y. Sept 13th. Soon after their
marriage they removed to Gouverneur. Here the pleasant and hopeful days of youth,
the busy and successful ones of middle life were spent, and old age was drawing on
when they were summoned to rest, nearly together. Mrs. Smith was a woman of
vigorous mind, and of an unusually active and energetic character. She had also a
most kindly heart, and her hospitality was noted. 'The heart of her husband did safely
trust in her. She looked well to the ways of her household and ate not the bread of
idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed.' For about three years before her
death, Mrs. Smith's health declined, and she had not anticipated surviving her
husband, but the strong man bowed down in death, and the feeble companion mourned
deeply at first, but presently said; 'I shall soon meet him,' and dwelled much on that
hope. As her illness increased she was sensible of the near approach of death - was
patient and resigned. She often spoke of the comfort she found in her children and of
the kindness of her sons in law. She was not afraid to die. She had long trusted in
Christ, "The Resurrection and the Life". Her remains were brought to this place for
burial. Rev. B.B. Beckwith, her former Pastor, preached a funeral sermon to a large
and sympathizing audience from Numbers 23-10. "Let me die the death of the
righteous, and let my last end be like his."

Her lifeless form we conveyed to the tomb and our hearts are sad but mingled with our
grief and sadness is a calm silent feeling that touches the silken cords of our hearts
with the thought that our loss is her gain; this feeling was strongly impressed on my
mind as I listened to the touching and feeling remarks of her pastor as we sat around
the little casket that contained the last of our dear friend at the funeral; and as her
lovely character came up before my mind I could not stop the silent tear that moistened
my eyes at the thought that we never again should listen to her pure and chaste
thoughts, for as a Conversationalist she was remarkable. She died giving clear and
beautiful testimony (and unreadable text follows).

Obituary. Died in the Scotch Settlement, town of Rossie, on the
morning of Wednesday August 19th, 1874, Thomas Elliott, aged 59 years. He was an
old resident of that part of Rossie where he lived and died. An only daughter is now left
to mourn his decease. He was born in Roxburg county, Scotland, and came to this
country with his parents while quite young, and, as a true Scotsman, never ceased to
cherish a deep feeling of love for old Scotia's shores. The remains of the
deceased were taken to Oxbow for internment, funeral services being conducted by the
Rev. A. Adair. The subject of his discourse were those well chosen words, "For here
have we no continuing city, but we seek one to come," from Hebrews, Chap 13, Verse
14. Thus, on the 19th ult., passed away one of our most highly respected citizens.
Another form mourned over by loving friends must be consigned to the lonely tomb. A
mother called away is now followed by the father. The dearest scenes have been
bidden farewell, earth's joys and pleasures are o'er, a consummation of all things must
at last finally arrive and the weary toils and troubles of the past are bidden farewell
forever. Eternity is ushered in and the weary pilgrim of earth is no more. But thanks to
a Divine Omnipotent, Bethlehem's star has never ceased to shine. This glittering orb
still radiates and beams before the persevering Christian with redoubled refulgence,
lighting on to Heavenly Zion all who will but trust in the merits of their Creator and all
wise Preserver. R.

years, daughter of Albert and Clarissa Bosworth. Again amid our happy
throng, The messenger of death has come,
And called one of these little ones, To a brighter home.
No more on earth will loving friends, Behold again that form so fair,
To heaven her Savior summoned her, She sings His praises there.
No more at school will children greet, Their former playmate once so gay,
For Anna now is folded in, The waiting angels arms alway.
We lay her, white and beautiful, Within the dark and narrow mould,
Well knowing that an angels wing, Will flutter from her heart of gold.

Died. On the evening of March 14, 1875, James Parker, aged
93 years. Mr. Parker was born in Canterbury, Conn., April 1, 1782, and with his only
brother - the late John Parker of Fullerville - emigrated to this county April 19, 1805.
He subsequently purchased a large tract of land - much of which he cleared with his
own hands - erected a comfortable log house, and commenced in earnest a life of
usefulness, identifying himself with the prosperity of the place of his adoption, and
disbursing liberally to all public benefactions and improvements. In the records of
Gouverneur, his name stands high among the projectors of bridges, schools, churches,
railroad and cemetery. Of the six trustees elected at the organization of the first
Presbyterian or Congregation churches of Gouverneur, Mr. Parker was one, and for
many years he sat in council with the sages of the land whenever matters of weight
were canvassed. His far-sighted sagacity saw the future of a thriving town and to its
welfare all his energies were bent. Like his eminent kinsman - John Quincy Adams - to
whom he bore a striking personal likeness - "Right must prevail, even though the
wheels of time were blocked to compass it."
Mr. Parker was married to Erminince Sackett, January 31, 1819, and was the father of
twelve children eight of whom with his widow now survive him.
In 1823, he built the brick house in which he lived for nearly fifty years, prepared the
material with his own hands, the quality of which has been tested by half a century, and
today stands a handsome memorial of its master builder. His rich and handsome farm
remained in his possession for sixty-seven years, and only passed from his hands
when the proprietor ascended to the better land and entered the heavenly mansions.
Of the private life of Mr. Parker little can be said beyond the family circle. His
extreme modesty and purity of character were best known there. A man of few words
but of more than ordinary intelligence his unsullied record is written upon the family
tablet. A life of nearly a century. What events have transpired - what a page of
history. Mr. Parker often related the passage of the first steamboat upon the Hudson
which he witnessed with the enthusiastic crowd; he saw the rise and fall of many a
kingdom and dynasty and watched with jealous eyes the growth of our own republic.
But where all is change, the stoutest fabrics must sooner or later crumble to dust.
Mr. Parker's disease was consumption; no word of complaint escaped his lips, and
without a struggle he passed away, and the places that have known him shall know him
no more. His funeral was attended at his late residence on the afternoon of March 17,
1875, and his remains lie in our beautiful cemetery, there to await the final summons.
Awake ye who in Jesus rest
Come home ye righteous, and be blest.
Died. In Edgerton, Mich., March 6, Libbie, infant daughter of
Mr. John and C. Richardson, aged one month. The remains were expressed through to

realms of Paradise. [03/06/1875]

The subject of this notice was born in Saratoga County, N.Y. on the 12 day of July,
1820. When about ten years of age he removed with his father to Fowler and from that
time has been a continual resident. His early life was devoted to the hard labors
incident to clearing up a new county and on arriving to manhood's estate he took a farm
adjoining that of his father and through his whole after life devoted himself to fulfilling
his ambition of becoming a perfect farmer. He reared a large family of children and
was ever a devoted husband and father, ever making his home the happiest place in
the world for his family. His wife bade him farewell and preceded him to the unknown
realm in May 1873, since which time the deceased has been the victim of Asthma in its
direct form, suffering intensely through all this time, still he has borne that suffering with
wonderful cheerfulness and courage. Ever ready to obey when death summoned him.
He has gone leaving five orphan children who will never forget his patience, generosity,
cheerfulness, strict justice and honesty which characterized all his dealings with his
family and fellowmen.
A whole community stricken by his death tender their sympathies to his children in

this country in 1835. After spending a few years in the town of Antwerp they moved
into the town of Rossie where they settled and have since resided. Just four years and
four months from the time that death bereft her of her husband she was also summoned
away from the troubles and cares of earth. She was a devout and sincere Christian.
On Wednesday her remains were consigned to the tomb where the now bereaved and
sorrow stricken family took a last sorrowful farewell of their sainted mother. The funeral
services were held in the Presbyterian church, Rossie, where we listened to an
affecting discourse delivered by Rev. A. Adair, from Psalms xvi-11. She has gone but
the record of her life still remains. The example of her piety ever radiated the precincts
of her home. She was beloved by all and the evidence of her life and death betoken
immortal rest beyond the grave. With sorrow we have been called upon to chronicle
her death, but yet we would not wish her back to earth, for we believe she now rests
from her labors enjoying the sweet communion of heaven's inspired throng. [03/27/1876]

Died. Ballantyne - (also spelled Balentyne). In Macomb, very
suddenly, Robert Ballantyne, in the nineteenth year of his age. In youth he has been
gathered home, but in the Christlike character of his death has left an impression that
can never be effaced; not simply in the now bereaved family circle; but througout the
entire community. His last words were of Jesus' love, of his entire resignation to the
Divine will, and of a blessed assurance of that happy home beyond the grave. He has
long been a member of the Presbyterian Sabbath school of OxBow, where his loss will
be most keenly felt. The funeral services took place Saturday. Discourse (?) by Rev.

seventy-two years. [04/18/1876]
Died. Chandler - In Richville, on the 20th inst., Mr. A.V.
Chandler, in the 82d year of his age. The removal from among us of Mr. Chandler
brings us a sense of sorrow which is deep and very sincere. Not only is it those who
were attached to him by the ties of family bonds, but many others also, share in a
personal bereavement. One of our most faithful and esteemed citizens has finished
life's work and been called to rest from his labors. But not only this, one whose
character, relations, labor and influence have been such as to personally identify his
life with the lives, the characters, and the influences of the very many whose memories
of him will be as lasting as the memories of childhood and youth. He was gentle and
decisive, careful of the opinions of others, tenacious of his own. No one came in
contact with him who did not see that he had a spirit loyal to truth, hostile to all
invasions and to all compromises with sin, a spirit that could not be swayed or wrestled
from established convictions.
Early in life, Mr. Chandler identified himself with the Masonic fraternity. The funeral
was conducted with Masonic honors on Tuesday, and so one friend has passed, for a
season, from our sight. Tenderly, may we cherish his memory. [04/20/1876]
