Hon. J. G. Dale.
17. -- (Special.)--Tionesta has been called upon to mourn
the loss of one of its oldest and most highly respected
citizens in the person of Hon. J. G. Dale. whose death occurred
at 8:45 p.m., Tuesday.
Joseph Gates Dale, son of
Rev. William and Mary (Gates) Dale, was born in Centre county,
May 15, 1815. His father dying that same year, he was brought
by his mother (a lady of highest Christian character) in
1816, to Tionesta, where he continued to be a resident for
82 years. For many years, he enjoyed the distinction of
being able to date the commencement of his residence in
Tionesta to an earlier date than any other inhabitant of
the town, which may be said concerning his residence in
the county as well.
Opportunities for mental improvement
were few in the undeveloped and thinly settled country,
but coming of an honorable and intelligent ancestry, it
is not to be wondered at, that he overcame every obstacle
and obtained an education that fitted him to hold the positions
of honor and trust that he was called upon to fill during
his life time.
He served a term as associate Judge
of Forest county, and filled all the borough offices of
consequence. He served as postmaster during the Lincoln
administration, and during Johnson's term he held the position
of department internal revenue collector. In 1836, he was
appointed a lieutenant in the State militia commanded by
Governor Ritner, and which position he held for two years.
Mr. Dale was a member of the J. O. O. F. since 1853,
and a Freemason of high order for many years. He was engaged,
during his lifetime, in lumbering, merchandise, banking
and oil producing. It is a matter of record that during
the early oil excitement he paid $105,000 for the Ball farm
on Pithole, which proved to be good oil territory, and it
is pleasing to note that the last years of his life were
spent in peace and comfort.
Judge Dale was married
on December 24, 1840, to Miss Nancy, daughter of Hon. Alexander
Holeman, who still survives him and in the year 1890 they
celebrated their golden wedding. Four children lived to
manhood and womanhood and were present at his death: Mrs.
B. M. Dewees, Mrs. J. C. Partridge, J. T. Dale and A. H.
Dale. The funeral will be held on Friday at 2 p.m., and
friends of the family are requested to be present.

Smith of Kane, Pa., died at the home of her daughter, Mrs.

and was the
mother of three daughters and one son, one daughter having
gone before her. The interment will be at Kane on Monday."

"Tionesta, Pa., Oct. 1 -- James
Henry Smith, a well known resident of Nebraska, this county,
and a valued employe of the T. D. Collins colate for the
past 10 years, died at his home in that place on last Thursday
evening at 5 o'clock, the cause of his death being cerebral
hemorrage, after an illness of but three days duration.
The deceased was a son of Henry and Nancy Smith, and was
born at Tylersburg, Clarion county, June 5, 1853, where
he attended the public schools and soon after reaching manhood
he entered the lumber woods at Beaver Valley, in Hickory
township, which vocation he followed most industriously
all his life. On July 25, 1875 he was joined in marriage
to Miss Jane Smith, also of Tylersburg, and they were the
parents of four children, all of whom have gone on before.
Mr. Smith was blessed with a kind and loving disposition,
was a general favorite and well liked by all our people,
being particularly sympathetic in his nature and ever ready
to lend a helping hand to those in trouble or distress.
Twenty-nine years ago the first of last July he had the
misfortune to have the bones of both lower limbs badly crushed
by being run over by a log car. Contrary to the best judgment
of two physicians he declined to have the injured limbs
amputated, and after a period of nine weeks he almost fully
recovered, since which time he has lived a most active and
industrious life. Besides his wife he is survived by two
brothers and two sisters, as follows: Mrs. Winnie Archer,
of Rouseville, Pa.; Mrs. Perry Lemon, of Kane, Pa.; Edgar
Smith, of West Hickory, and Jacob Smith, of Tylersburg.
He was a life-long member of the Methodist Episcopal church
and his pastor, Rev. J. E. Allgood, conducted funeral services
in his memory in the church at Nebraska on Saturday at 1
p.m. The pallbearers were E. L. Dewoody, Fred McNaughion,
James Thompson, Lewis Geiser, J. N. Allison and Frank Combs.
The interment took place in Riverside cemetery."

Hon. Samuel S. Towler.
Tionesta, Pa., June 18.--(Special.)--Hon. Samuel S. Towler,
one of the best citizens of Forest county, died at his home
in Marienville this morning. The deceased has practiced
medicine since 1868, and was extensively interested in the
oil development of the county.
Mr. Towler was born
in Manchester, England, June 6, 1843, and was a son of Rev.
William and Mary (Phillips) Towler, who came to America
in 1845, and located in New York city, where the father
had charge of a Methodist church. He was reared in Canada
until 17 years of age, and was educated in the Toronto Model
school. In 1860 he located in Cleveland, O., and remained
there until 1863, when he went to the quartermaster's department
at Nashville, Tenn., and was honorably discharged in 1865.
He read medicine with Drs. Mahaffey and Hickman, of Cleveland,
and graduated from the University of Michigan in 187?. He
first began to practice at Reynoldsville then moved to Millerstown,
Butler county, Pa., and in 18?8 came to Marienville, where
he has since practiced his profession. In 1873 he married
Miss Clara B. Hunt, whose death occurred some two weeks
ago. One daughter, the wife of Dr. A. E. Stonecipher, and
one son, Harry, survive him. He was a Republican in politics
and was twice elected a member of the assembly, first in
18?1, and again in ??????ing a member of that body at the
time of his death. He was an elder in the Presbyterian church
at Marienville, and superintendent of the Sabbath school
for the past 12 years. It was while conducting the childrens
day service in that church on last Sunday evening that he
suffered a stroke of paralysis, from which he never recovered,
death finally ending his sufferings at 1:15 o'clock on Tuesday
morning. He was truly a great public benefactor in every
sense of the word, being a great friend of the poor, and
his death will be generally regretted by a large circle
of acquaintances. The burial takes place from his late home
in Marienville at 2 o'clock Thursday afternoon.
