STRICKEN ON ROAD HOME, POPULAR PASTOR EXPIRES
The Rev. Coleson E. Ferguson of West Water Street is Taken Fatally Ill While Returning  From Meeting in Church.
The Rev. Coleson E. Ferguson, pastor of the Epworth Methodist Episcopal church, died at his home on West Water Street, last evening at 8:30 o’clock from an attack of uremic poisoning. The attack first became noticeable at 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon on his return from a meeting in the church near the Reformatory. He was accompanied in a buggy by Mrs. J. J. Lamouree of Carrs Corners, whom Mr. Ferguson frequently took part way home from the church meetings.
Mrs. Lamouree noticed that Mr. Ferguson allowed his horse to ramble away from the road, and she took the reins. From that time on she was compelled to hold him up to keep him in the wagon. She drove all the way home with him, and there he was assisted from the wagon by members of his family. Medical aid was summoned, but to no avail, and he died in a few hours.
In the church several of the members had noticed his hand stiffen and he rubbed it several times to ward off numbness. Prior to this he had felt ill at times. Several times he had had nose bleeds and suffered a considerable loss of blood.
Eight days ago the Rev. Mr. Ferguson passed his seventieth birthday. He had been pastor of several churches in this city, and had an enviable record in his work. During the years he had been pastor of the Epworth Methodist Episcopal Church he had paid off the church debt of $3,400 and the church is now in a healthy condition.
He was born in Bradford County, June 7, 1843. Following his theological course, his first call was to the Centenary Church in this city. He helped to remove the debt of that church at that time, and afterwards was pastor of a church at Lowman, later building one at Wellsburg. He later solicited $500 for the Riverside Church and thus became one of its founders.
When the village of Elmira Heights was in its infancy, he founded the Oakwood Avenue Methodist Church and helped in the erection of its building, leaving the church without debt. Afterwards he became pastor of the Pennsylvania Avenue Church, where he served eight years with great success. He cleared up all the debts of this church and purchased a parsonage.
Following the pastorate of two pastors of the Epworth Church, he was called to take charge of that congregation. While the church property had been greatly improved, the church was heavily in debt. The congregation had become discouraged, but under the guiding hand of Mr. Ferguson, a debt of several thousand dollars was paid off.
Mr. Ferguson had hundreds of friends in the city who will regret to learn of his death. He has worked hard in the interests of his several congregations, and had made a place in the hearts of every one with whom he came in contact.
He is survived by his widow, one daughter, Mrs. Carrie Carr, one brother, William H. Ferguson, and one sister, Mrs. James Irving of Binghamton. Funeral arrangements will be made later.
The funeral will be held Friday at 11:20 a.m. Interment will be in Pine Valley. (handwritten on article June 17, 1913)

BURT J. GOSPER DIES OF ACCIDENT INJURY; MERCHANT, BANKER
Burt J. Gosper, one of Elmira’s leading business men and bankers, died unexpectedly at the Arnot-Ogden Hospital early Monday of injuries suffered in an automobile crash of Odessa. He was 59.
Mr. Gosper was president of the Gosper-Kelly, Inc. shoe firm, and president of the Chemung Valley Savings & Loan Association.
While he was driving toward Elmira on the afternoon of Mar. 21, his car rammed an abutment of the Lehigh Valley Railroad overhead at the east end of Odessa on the Odessa-Mecklenberg highway. Suffering a fractured right kneecap and face and arm cuts, he was taken to the Elmira hospital in the Horton ambulance of Odessa.
Dr. F. C. Ward of Odessa, who accompanied him in the ambulance, said Mr. Gosper was unable to explain the cause of the crash.
“Mr. Gosper told me he had suffered from a headache and dizzy spells earlier that day, and that he was partly blinded by the sun when he made the turn just before reaching the railroad,” Dr. Ward told the Star-Gazette Monday.
Mr. Gosper’s condition had improved slowly but steadily at the hospital and physicians expected he would recover. Early Monday morning, however, he complained of a severe pain in the chest. Death, which came at 1:08 a.m., was attributed by physicians to internal chest injuries developing from the accident.
Mr. Gosper spent his entire business career in the shoe business. He was born in the Town of Southport on Oct. 23, 1879, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Clark W. Gosper. He attended Elmira grade schools, was graduated from the Elmira Free Academy and took a business course at Warner’s Business College.
