Friendly by nature, Mr. Lain made personal friends of his customers. He took a keen interest in their welfare and his liberal credit terms were frequently the means of tiding them over periods of economic distress. He understood farm problems as the result of the operation of his own farm at Wellsburg and his advice was highly regarded.

He represented the church as lay delegate at the annual conference over a long period.
Mr. Lain took exceptional pride in the contributions his family had made to the development of the Chemung Valley.

He was instrumental in founding the annual Lain reunion and was the author of a portion of the Lain genealogy.

Dr. Frank H. Flood, a practicing physician in this city 30 years, died this morning about 9:30 o’clock at the family home 405 Columbia Street. Dr. Flood had been in failing health the past few years but had been confined to his home about ten days of a serious disease of the jawbone, following the extraction of several teeth, a few weeks ago. His death was not unexpected.
Dr. Frank H. Flood was born in Farmer, Seneca County, September 17, 1851. His father, Dr. James Flood was a native of Milton, pa. and removed to Seneca County in 1849 where he practiced medicine until 1867 when he removed to Geneva and continued the practice of medicine until his death in 1884. His widow, Mrs. Minerva K. Flood, yet resides in that city. Dr. Frank H. Flood was the oldest of three children. He remained in his native town until 16 years of age and pursued his elementary education in the public schools and the Ovid Seminary. Later he became a student at the Danville Seminary and graduated in the class of 1867. After completing his literary course, Dr. Flood engaged as a teacher until 1870 and during that period he devoted his leisure hours to reading medicine under the direction of his father. He took a course of lectures in the former Geneva Medical College, which is now the medical department of the Syracuse University and was graduated from the medical department of the University of New York, of New York City February 20, 1873.
The decedent first located in Fayette, Seneca County and began the practice of his profession in May, 1886. The following year he removed to Elmira and had practiced continuously until his recent illness. His practice for many years was extensive and the local medical acknowledged his competence and broad bearing.
In 1888 Dr. Flood was united in marriage to Miss Lyle R. Choate of Seneca County and to them were born two daughters, Mrs. Charles Saylor and Miss Minerva Flood both of this city. Mrs. Flood also survived him; as well as his aged mother at Geneva and a brother John Flood at Boston, Mass. While residing in Seneca Co., Dr. Flood served three terms from 1876 to ’78 as a supervisor of the Town of Varick. In 1878 he was elected as coroner of Seneca county and after his removal to Elmira he served one term in 1877 as the city coroner. March 6, 1900 Dr. Flood was elected as the mayor of Elmira, on the Republican ticket in which office he served with commendation. He worked out many practical features, introducing many improvements to the city’s profit. Dr. Flood was formerly an active member of several of the fraternal orders of the city but during the past few years he had withdrawn from those activities because of failing health. He retained his membership in the Elmira Academy of Medicine, the Chemung Count Medical Society and the Central Medical Association of New York. He was also an honorary member of the Seneca County Medical Society and the Sacramento Medical Society.
Dr. Flood was a lover of fine horses, and in his life he had owned some racers and carriage horses which had gained fame in professional lines.

EDWARD T. FLANAGAN’S DEATH REMOVES MAN MUCH ESTEEMED
After Only Brief Illness, Well Known Elmira Business Man Dies of Peculiar Affliction at St. Joseph’s Hospital—Death Causes Deep Regret
The critical illness of Edward T. Flanagan culminated Saturday night, when the young man died at St. Joseph’s Hospital as a result of diphtheria. The sad news came to his host of friends as a severe chock, partly because the full seriousness of his condition was not realized by friends until the close of the week.
Mr. Flanagan contracted a severe cold before the holidays, but devoted himself closely to business, and worked hard through the holiday season. After Christmas he made a business trip to New York. The day before New Year’s, Mr. Flanagan consulted a New York physician. The latter advised Mr. Flanagan to go home to his physician and put himself under treatment at once. Upon this point the physician was firm, but he tactfully said that with prompt care there was no necessity for alarm. At the time Mr. Flanagan was scarcely able to speak, and there was a severe tightening of the throat and chest. Mr. Flanagan came home at once and went to the St. Joseph’s Hospital.
Drs. George B. Case and Dr. W. H. Soble were called and found that there was a mixed infection in the nasal passages, and that pus cavities were in evidence in the antrims, and possibly there was inflammation of the sinuses. It is not thought that there was any diphtheria during the stages of the disease early in the week. If the mixed infection in the nasal channels did embrace diphtheria germs, they probably descended through the mouth into the throat. The case, in any event, was most unusual.
Friday afternoon the patient suffered a severe seizure and in coughing particles of diphtheria membrane were expelled from the throat and he failed rapidly.
Death resulted directly from apparent diphtheria, it is stated by the physicians, but although he had been ill for upwards of ten days the diphtherietic condition was not discovered until Friday, and it is possible even now that it was not a case of true diphtheria. It may be established that death resulted indirectly, at last, if not directly, from an abscess in the trachea, which is commonly called the windpipe. The trachea, with is cartilaginous membrane, extends from below the lower mouth into the lungs. The upper end is called the larynx, and the pipe extends downward into two main branches, one going to the left lung, the other to the right lung, and in the lungs these are sub-divided into numerous ramifications. An abscess was located at about the fork in the windpipe and the cavity containing pus, due to inflammation and suppuration, drained into the system. This became definitely known when the abscess broke and flooded.
Dr. Dewitt Sherman of Buffalo, a specialist in diphtheria cases, was called Saturday but did not arrive in the city until Saturday night after Mr. Flanagan had died. It is the second death visitation in this family within a few weeks, which makes the affliction all the heavier in the home circle, and more pathetic to the family’s friends.
Only a couple of months ago the deceased’s beloved sister, Theresa Flanagan, died of influenza. A report yesterday and today had it that another member of the family was seriously ill. The report is untrue and without foundation.
Edward Flanagan was born in Elmira, September 17, 1882, and was a little over thirty-six years of age. He was unmarried. He is survived by four sisters, Misses Mary Elizabeth and Ina Flanagan, and Mrs. D. H. Donahue, a brother John J. of the U. S. Navy. His mother, whose business in the dry goods trade was very successful, died about four years ago. His father John J. Flanagan, founded the dry goods business now controlled by the family. He died about twenty-five years ago.
Edward devoted his entire time to the management of the extensive business which the family owns. He was a young man of pleasing ways, who was well liked by their host of friends and business associates, in fact everyone with whom he came in contact. The decedent was devoted to the interests of his sisters and brother.

MONDAY, SEPT. 25, 1916
After passing the good old age of 82 years, Andrew Fitzsimmons died at an early hour this morning at the ancestral home on the corner of Maple and Caton Avenues. Mr. Fitzsimmons was stricken 15 weeks ago, and since that prostration had been physically but not mentally incapacitated, and death came this morning, by reason of no ailment, but merely through the infirmity of his four score years. He was born August 18, 1834.
Andrew Fitzsimmons was born on the farm where he had always live, and whereon he died. His grandfather, John Fitzsimmons, was a young soldier in the army of General John Sullivan when he was sent by General George Washington on the famous expedition against the Indians of this valley, and which culminated in the battle of Newtown. The glistening monument commemorating that battle, is in plain sight of the Fitzsimmons home.
When the young soldier was released from the wars incident to the times that tried men’s souls, he returned to the valley which had looked so fair to him when he marched through with the conquering militia-men, and in 1790 bought the uncleared lands that became the old homestead. He was able to secure the deed to the land in 1797, so that the instrument has been in possession of the family nearly 120 years.
John Fitzsimmons had a number of children; among them a son Davis, who was the father of Andrew. Both the grandfather and father were men of prominence, and both are buried in Pioneer Cemetery, nearly opposite the home. John Fitzsimmons was Master of Union Lodge, F. & A.M. in 1820 and Andrew Fitzsimmons, at the time of his demise, was the oldest service member of Ivy Lodge, having joined the order in 1868.
Andrew Fitzsimmons was married to Miss Anna McCormick of Portville, Cattaraugus County, who died 14 years ago. They had two children, Helenna who is Mrs. J. S. Scranton of 205 Horner Street, this city and Miss Louise at home. During the long illness of their father, and, indeed, ever since the death of their mother, they gave to him all the care and loving attention that affection could suggest or prompt them to do.
Mr. Fitzsimmons served the town of Southport three terms as supervisor, and in 1896 was the candidate of the Democratic party of Chemung County for member of assembly.
The funeral service will be held at the late home on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30 o’clock, with interment in Woodlawn Cemetery. At this service, the acting chaplain of Ivy Lodge, the Rev. A. E. Legg, and the Rev. R. L. Williams will officiate. The committal service will be conducted at Woodlawn Cemetery by Ivy Lodge, No. 397, F&AM.
Andrew Fitzsimmons will be remembered as a man of sterling character, a man in whose heart charity and good will dwell and were daily exemplified, a man whose home was his shrine and whose word was sacred, and always a man to whom one could turn for a pleasant word, and if need be, for a helping hand. Such men are few. Such men are always mourned by friends and held in affection’s embrace by those close to them by the tie of consanguinity.

MRS. J. EARL GREGORY AND DAUGHTER, VELMA, STRUCK AND KILLED BY LACKAWANNA
Well Known Woman, Resident of Upper Lake Street, Near County Fair Grounds, Failed to Observe Fast Passenger Train, after Freight had Passed Crossing near Howell Farm, and Drove Her Automobile on Tracks Directly in Path of Train-Little Velma is Killed Instantly—Mother Survives Short Time.
Elmira Heights, Sept. 3—Mrs. J. Earl Gregory and her daughter, Velma, aged thirteen years, met death last evening at 6 o’clock, while crossing the crossing of the Lackawanna Railroad at the Howell Farm near the Chemung County Fair grounds. The automobile was struck by Lackawanna passenger train No. 3. The daughter was killed instantly and the mother injured so badly that death followed at 8 o’clock.
Mrs. Gregory, accompanied by her daughter, had attended a meeting of the Horseheads Grange, held yesterday afternoon at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Breese at the corner of Euclid Avenue and West First Street, in Elmira, the trip having been made by automobile. At the close of the meeting Mrs. Gregory and her daughter started for their home, going on the state road on Oakwood Avenue to the road north of the American Bridge Company’s plant, near the John McCann farm, which connects the Oakwood Avenue road with the Lake Street road and passes through the former Howell farm. The road is known as a dirt road and passes over the Erie Railroad, the Lackawanna and the Lehigh Valley Railroad tracks, near the County Fair grounds. This route was taken by Mrs. Gregory as the most direct to their home on the Lake Street road, a half mile south of the village of Horseheads.
At the Lackawanna Railroad tracks the road on each side of the railroad is 10 or 12 feet lower than the railroad road grade, the approach on each side being quite steep.
When Mrs. Gregory and her daughter reached the Lackawanna train was passing eastward. She stopped her car on the west side of the tracks. A second car occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Meeker and Mr. and Mrs. Leon Moss of this village also waited at the rear of the Gregory car. After the caboose of the freight train had cleared the crossing, Mrs. Gregory started her car. As the car reached the rails, fast passenger train No. 3, westbound, which leaves the Elmira station at 5:40 p.m., (state time) dashed from behind the freight train. Mrs. Gregory made a frantic effort to clear the crossing but the locomotive pilot struck the Maxwell automobile squarely in the side, dashing it to pieces and throwing the occupants a distance of fifty feet. The passenger train in the charge of Conductor J. J. Killen of Binghamton, Engineer Thomas Cantlin of Elmira and Fireman John Sullivan of Buffalo, was stopped a short distance from the crossing and backed to the crossing.
Mrs. Gregory had suffered frightful injuries on the head, including a fracture of the skull. Her daughter had been killed instantly. Her neck was broken.
A call was made for the Elmira Police Ambulance and Mrs. Gregory was taken to the Arnot-Ogden Hospital, where she died at 8 o’clock. The remains of her daughter were removed to the Van Buskirk Brothers undertaking rooms at Horseheads. Dr. Charles Erway and Coroner C. N. Hammond were called.
There will be an inquest held by Coroner Hammond.
The decedent was born in 1874 and before her marriage was Miss Sadie J. Clark, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Warren Clark of Beemersville, Pa. Twenty years ago Mr. and Mrs. Gregory were married and two children were born to them, the daughter, Velma and a son, Carlton. Mr. Gregory was employed many years as a clerk in the Elmira postoffice. A few years ago they started a chicken farm near Horseheads. She was a woman of ability, loved and admired by many friends. For some time she was the Horseheads correspondent for the Star-Gazette. Mrs. Gregory was chaplain and a leading member of the Horseheads Grange. She was a woman of lovable character and kindly ways, which endeared her to all. Her daughter, Velma, was a student in the Horseheads schools. With her family, Mrs. Gregory attended the Horseheads Presbyterian Church. The decedent is survived by her husband and son Carlton, and a brother Harry C. Clark of Irvington, N.J.
The remains were removed this afternoon from the Van Buskirk undertaking rooms at Horseheads to the Gregory home on the Lake Street road, where the funeral will be held at the Horseheads Presbyterian Church will officiate. Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery at Horseheads. Members of the Horseheads Grange will attend the service. (handwritten on article Sept. 2, 1920)

YOUTH KILLED; 3 COMPANIONS BADLY HURT
An ice-coated pavement is blamed for the skidding of an automobile on the Lake Road Wednesday night which caused the death of Joseph E. Gude, 15, of 403 W. Broad St., Horseheads, and seriously injured three companions.
Gude, son of Mr. and Mrs. Adolph J. Gude and a junior at Horseheads High School, died of a fractured skull Thursday morning about 7. He also had chest injuries and cuts on the head and both legs.
His companions, all under treatment in St. Joseph’s Hospital are:
Richard Lain, 17, of Horseheads RD 3, possible skull fracture, internal injuries and face cuts. Condition critical.
Ernest Rodabaugh, 17, of 615 W. Franklin St., Horseheads, severe head lacerations, fractured right leg, fractured nose and possible skull fracture. Condition serious.
Eugene Bates, 19, of 303 Mill St., Horseheads, possible skull fracture, severe scalp lacerations and shock. Condition serious.
The crash occurred near the Dr. Blostein Animal Hospital, just south of 14th St.
Deputy Harry A. Wickham of the sheriff’s office said that the car driven by Rodabaugh, was headed toward Elmira on the Upper Lake Rd. The officer attributed the crash to the icy highway caused by the packing of snow which fell Wednesday evening.
He said the single-seat coupe skidded out of control, leaving the east side of the highway to crash a large elm tree headon.
The impact drove the car’s engine into the seat, crushing the occupants. Passing motorists removed Young Lain who had been riding in the trunk compartment and had been pinned there.
The James ambulance removed the youths to St. Joseph’s Hospital, Special Deputy Charles Van Riper aided Deputy Wickham in the investigation.
The Horseheads High School junior class, of which Gude was a member, cancelled a dance Thanksgiving night out of respect to the accident victim.
