Male Reese
A correspondent writes us that a few days ago a little child of Mr. Josiah Reese, Jr., of Catlin Hollow, was left alone in the house a short time by his mother.  On Mrs. Reese’s return the child was unable to unfasten the door to let her in, and on finally effecting an entrance by another door she found the child’s clothes burned off and the little sufferer so injured that he died in a few days.  (Tuesday, January 2, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Robert Custard, Esq.
To the Editor of the Agitator:  “In the midst of life we are in death.”  It falls to the sad lot of the winter to chronicle the sudden death of Robert Custard, Esq., of Morris township, who was crushed while engaged in digging a well, and died December 21st, aged 41 years.  He was a prominent citizen of this part of the county and a man of sterling integrity.  Mr. Custard came to this county with his parents from the north of Scotland while yet quite young, and was educated at the old Wellsboro Academy, and was also taught the business of a surveyor under the care of Wm. Bache, Esq.  When the rebellion broke out he enlisted as a private in the 148th Pa. Vols., Col. Beaver commanding.  He participated in the campaign of the Wilderness and at Spottsylvania Court House where he was severely wounded, but refused to leave the service, and was again with the colors of his regiment in the battles in front of Petersburg, on the Weldon railroad and at Five Forks.  After the close of the war he resumed his business, and was elected a Justice of the Peace by his numerous friends, discharging the duties of his office with fidelity.  He was a brave soldier, a good citizen and a true Christian.  His death is a loss to this community that will not soon be repaired.  He leaves a widow, but no children.  Liberty, December 25, 1876.  (Tuesday, January 2, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Miss Hattie Beaty
A very terrible accident took place at the residence of Mr. Samuel Beaty, a farmer living on Losey creek about 1 ˝ miles from Keeneyville, last week Monday.  There was a gun in the house, which had been loaded for a year or two, and from which it proved impossible to extract the charge by the ordinary means.  During the forenoon of the 8th instant Mr. Beaty’s stepson, Edwin Mosler, a lad about 12 years old, undertook to get the load out of the gun by a rather unusual process.  He took the barrel out of the stock, took out the tube and placed the butt of the barrel in the kitchen fire with the weapon pointing out into the room.  The little daughter of the family, Hattie, aged about three years, sat on the floor deeply interested in the operations and looking directly toward the fire.  Very soon there was an explosion, and the little girl fell unconscious, the ball having struck her near the right temple and passed through the brain to the back of the skull where it was afterwards found flattened against the bone.  The boy started at once for a physician, and Dr. Blatchley, of Keeneyville, reached the house as soon as possible; but it was evident from the first that no surgical skill could save the wounded child, and she died about two hours after the accident, having been entirely unconscious from the moment of the injury.  We are informed that the mother of sat within a few feet of her when the boy was suffered to put the gun in the stove to burn the load out!  No inquest was held in the case.  (Tuesday, January 16, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)   Note added 2/28/2012:

While doing research on my Ancestor Charlotte Baldwin Mosher Beaty I found an obit for Hattie Beaty.  Charlotte's first husband Aaron Mosher (my ancestor) was killed in the civil war in 1864 leaving behind sons Aaron Wing Mosher and James Edward Mosher.  Charlotte re-married to someone with a surname of Beaty.  It appears likely that James Edward Mosher born Jan 19 1864 is the Edward Mosher approx. 12 years old listed in this obit as the stepson of Samuel Beaty.  I thought you might find this interesting as I found the link to this information on your website.  Sincerely, Grace Mosher

Female Doan
On the 7th instant, the youngest daughter of Mr. D. D. Doan, of West Chatham, died of scarlet fever.  She was three years of age.  (Tuesday, January 16, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Rev. Wm. H. Rumsey
To the Editor of the Agitator:  It is with sorrow that I chronicle the death of a devoted minister of the East Genesee Conference of the M. E. Church and a former resident of this place.  Rev. Wm. H. Rumsey departed this life on the 8th instant, at Wells, Bradford county, aged about 36 years.  He was converted here under the pastorate of Rev. C. L. F. Howe some nine years ago, and the next year he entered upon his ministerial career.  He occupied the circuits of New Albany, Farmington, Chatham, another of which I do not know the name, and Wells, his last field.  The gospel which he held forth carried him calmly through the valley of the shadow of death.  The funeral services were held in the M. E. church in this place, Rev. H.

Mrs. Almira Sly
At Painted Post, NY, January 31, 1877, Mrs. Almira Sly, in the 81st year of her age.  Mrs. Sly was the eldest child of the late John Knox, of Knoxville, Steuben county, NY.  She was born in Knoxville and resided there nearly all her days.  Early in life she married William Bonham, of Knoxville, who died in 1858.  She was the mother of 14 children, six of whom--five sons and one daughter--are still living.  A few years ago she became the wife of John Sly, an old resident of Knoxville; but their wedded life was soon terminated by Mr. Sly’s death.  Nearly 50 years ago the subject of this sketch united with the Presbyterian Church.  At that time Corning was unthought of, and the church people of Knoxville were but “a feeble folk.”  There was not a single male member of the society; but the young wife and mother, together with two or three other equally devoted women, kept up the organization and maintained the Sunday-school by their own devout and unaided efforts.  From the seed thus planted sprang the present Presbyterian Church of Corning.  Mrs. Sly was, during her whole life, a woman of much more than  common intellectual force, of unflagging energy and of great decision of character.--She was one of those who have very positive ideas of right and of duty, and whose individuality impresses all with whom they come in contact and moulds the society about them.  She ever felt an unflagging interest in public affairs, and was always able to give a reason for her political as well as her religious faith.  Her intellect was bright and her memory vivid almost up to the hour when the faithful friend, the tender mother and the devoted Christian fell peacefully and sweetly asleep in Jesus.  (Tuesday, February 6, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Oliver Pease

Col. Andrew K. Bosard
Last week Monday night, about midnight, Col. Andrew K. Bosard, of Osceola, went to bed apparently in the best of health.  Almost immediately after retiring he complained that his back was cold, and in a moment he made a gasp or groan that alarmed Mrs. Bosard.  She got up at once and called her brother, who had just gone up stairs to bed.  He came down quickly and at once ran for Dr. Heggie, who was a near neighbor.  The doctor hastened to answer the call; but before he reached his patient’s bedside Col. Bosard was dead, having expired within 10 minutes after getting into bed feeling as well as ever.  No post-mortem examination was made, and the cause of death is not certainly known, but it is believed to have been apoplexy.  The Colonel had been a strong, vigorous man all his life, very seldom suffering from illness of any sort.  He was in his 58th year. Col. Bosard was born at Osceola, and lived there all his life.  He was, early in life, a carpenter and joiner, and many structures in the vicinity of Osceola remain to attest his skill as a builder.  For several years he was engaged in brick-making, and united with that business the occupation of a farmer.  For nearly 25 years he held the office of Justice of the Peace, having nearly completed his 5th term.  As a Justice he became widely and favorably known, and enjoyed the confidence and respect of his fellow-men to a remarkable extent-a fact that was touchingly demonstrated at the funeral on Thursday by the attendance of a great number of his old friends who had long been in the habit of resorting to him for counsel in business matters.  Some thirty-odd years ago he appointed a Colonel of militia, his commission bearing the signature of Gov. Porter, and the title then acquired was associated with his name ever after.  A year ago last fall he was elected one of the County Auditors on the Republican ticket, and he held the office at the time of his death.  In politics he was originally an old line Whig, and he adhered to that organization until the formation of the Republican party nearly 22 years ago.  Since the Fremont campaign he had been straight Republican except when led astray by the Greeley illusion in 1872.  He had for the past 18 years been a faithful member of the Presbyterian Church at Osceola.  He was twice married, and left nine children, one of them being James H. Bosard, Esq., of this village.  Col. Bosard was a genial man and a valuable citizen, and his loss will be long felt in the neighborhood where he was best known.  (Tuesday, June 20, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Sir William Ferguson
Sir William Ferguson, president of the British Royal College of Surgeons and Sergeant Surgeon to the Queen, died recently.  (Tuesday, June 20, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Lewis J. Stothoff
An accident occurred at Antrim last Thursday forenoon, resulting in the death of Mr. Lewis J. Stothoff, a young man employed in the office of the Fall Brook Coal Company at that place.  A freight engine was engaged in switching some platform cars loaded with lumber, and while thus employed it became necessary to detach the hind car.  The short train of four or five cars was backed quite rapidly upon the siding, Mr. Stothoff being upon the platform of the flat car next to the last for the purpose of drawing the coupling-pin at the proper time.  As soon as the pin was pulled out the engine-driver, following the usual practice, reversed his engine so as to check the momentum of the train, while the uncoupled car ran back on the siding.  The reversal of the engine checked the speed of the train with a sudden jerk, and Mr. Stothoff was thrown from the hind end of the car, falling upon the track.  But although the motion of the backing cars was much checked the train was not entirely stopped, but continued to run backward.  The last car passed over the unfortunate young man, crushing one hip, breaking the left leg below the knee, making an incised wound about the small of the back near the spine, and injuring him internally.  Dr. Bacon, of this village, was telegraphed for, and proceeded to Antrim at once on a special engine; but it was not within the power of human skill to save the injured man.  He died about two hours after the injury was received, and was fully conscious up to the last.  Mr. Stothoff was a brother-in-law of Gen. George J. Magee, of the Fall Brook Company.  He was about 22 years of age, and was a lively and genial young man.  He had been employed at Antrim for two or three years, and was well known and much liked by the young men of this village.  He was here in the best of health and spirit’s the night before the fatal accident, and the news of his sudden and painful death fell upon the ears of those who knew him with a shock that startled and saddened them all.  (Tuesday, June 20, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Col. Richard Gustin
Col. Richard Gustin, a resident of Jackson township in this county, met with a fatal accident in Elmira, last Thursday afternoon about half past two o’clock.  The terrible affair occurred at the Water street crossing of the Erie railway, and the facts are related by the Advertiser substantially as follows: Mr. Gustin was in a platform wagon just above the Pennsylvania House, driving a team of horses, when they became frightened at a man in the street shoveling dirt.  They sprang out of the control of Col. Gustin and ran down the street at a furious rate.  A freight train was passing down the track and the horses ran furiously into it, upsetting the wagon and throwing Gustin therefrom under the wheels of the cars.  Before help could come to him--and it seemed as if the street was instantly full of people--at least three cars passed over him; crushing his left leg and the lower part of his body in a fearful manner.  He was carried to the office of Dr. M. Flood, near at hand, and an attempt made to relieve him, but he was past human help.  Some of the most important arteries and blood-vessels must have been cut, for there was a stream of blood along the street where he was carried that was like pouring water from a pitcher.  He lived but a few moments after arriving at the office. The team turned and ran towards the bridge and on it, but they were secured and brought back without having suffered any material damage.  It is a great pity that they could not have been killed rather than that a valuable human life should have been sacrificed by them.  Col. Gustin was a farmer, and lived about two miles from Millerton.  He was held in very high respect and esteem by all his neighbors, and was a prominent citizen in this vicinity.  During the war he served, he was Colonel of a Pennsylvania regiment.  He was elected master of the Millerton Gazette at its organization, and was re-elected last December.  He was about 50 years of age and leaves a wife and three children.  (Tuesday, April 17, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

William G. Brownlow(Parson Barlow)
William G. Brownlow, better known as Parson Brownlow, died last Sunday at Knoxville, Tenn.  His life was a varied and a useful one.  He was first a carpenter, then became a Methodist minister, and after 10 years of itinerant preaching turned politician, and finally naturally drifted into political journalism.  He soon became noted for the vigor and point of his writings, bringing to the support of his Whig principles a most trenchant and fearless pen.  Although a strong advocate of chattel slavery, when the war of secession broke out the plucky political parson became an outspoken Union man.  In this character his labors became so damaging to the cause of the South that in the first year of the war he was arrested on a charge of treason against the Confederacy, and after an imprisonment for several months was sent within the Union lines.  At the close of the war he returned to Tennessee, of which State he became Governor in 1865.  He was afterward elected United States Senator, and served one term with conspicuous ability notwithstanding the severest physical infirmity.  He was a man of decided ability and independence of character, and he has written his name indelibly in the ? of his generation.  (Tuesday, April 24, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mary, daughter of William P. and Mary Shumway, departed this life April 23, 1877, aged 15 years, 9 months, and 19 days.  Her illness was brief, taking a little less than two weeks, and as it fatally affected the brain, her friends were not permitted to communicate with her as their love and sympathy prompted.  Everything was come to relieve and restore that warm affection and medical skill could devise, but without avail.  It pleased God to remove her from us, notwithstanding her overwhelming grief and tearful supplications.  (Tuesday, May 1, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Miss Lottie Torpy
On the morning of the 5th instant, at about 7 o’clock, a very sad accident took place at the residence of Mr. Aaron Torpy about two miles west of this village, resulting in the death of Mr. Torpy’s daughter Lottie, a bright little girl six years of age.  Mrs. Torpy was busy about her household duties, and went to the door a short distance to get a pail, leaving Lottie and a younger child in the kitchen.  Before the mother could get back to the house Lottie appeared at the door with her clothes in flames.  The poor child ran out and away from her mother, who soon caught her, however, and undertook to smother the fire by wrapping her own skirts around the burning child.  But she only succeeded in burning herself quite severely and setting fire to her own clothing.  Fortunately Mr. Torpy was near at hand, and soon extinguished the flames with a pail of water.  Lottie was so terribly burned that she was paralyzed and suffered no pain, and she died about 7 o’clock in the evening before reaction had set in.  It is believed that the child’s clothing caught fire from a spark snapping out the stove door, which was held partly open by a stick of wood too long to go entirely in.  The younger child who was with her in the kitchen says Lottie stood near the stove door dressing, when she took fire; and this is the most probable explanation of the deplorable accident.  (Tuesday, May 8, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Margaret Harris
Mrs. Margaret Harris (aged 95 years), who died recently at Jersey Shore, was the daughter of John English, a soldier of the Revolutionary war who fought under Anthony Wayne.  Mrs. Harris was married in 1803.  She raised a family of 11 children, seven of whom are living.  This remarkable woman passed through the trying scenes of the “Big Runaway,” when all the settlers had before the relentless savages, who destroyed their improvements, burned their crude cabins, and slew many who fell into their hands.  One of her sisters, who was captured at that time, was scalped.  Mrs. Harris was a devout member of the Methodist Episcopal church for nearly 70 years.  (Tuesday, May 8, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

In Charleston, on Wednesday, May 9, 1877, Fanny M., wife of Richard Henry, and daughter of James M., and Ann J. Wilkinson, aged 29 years, 7 months and 7 days.  How true it is that “Death loves a shining mark.”  Of late how often have we been reminded of the uncertainty of life and the certainty of the fate which awaits us all, and to many of us may lie but a short distance in the future.  Another household has a vacancy which can never be filled.  The deceased has left a sadly-bereaved husband, two small children and a large circle of relatives and friends to mourn her loss.  She had suffered long and hard from that fearful disease--consumption.  She endured her pains and fevers without a murmur during all her sad hours.  She was cheered by the bright prospect beyond the river, and her friends mourn not as these without hope; they know that she died in the fullest triumph and deepest conviction and belief in the religion of Jesus; and her last request was that they should all so live that when “life‘s fitful fever is over” they might all once more meet in that other and better land where the wicked cease from troubling and the weary are at rest.  (Tuesday, May 8, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Henrietta Bacon
In Delmar, April 27, 1877, Mrs. Henrietta Bacon, wife of Mr. David L. Bacon, and daughter of the late Mr. Benjamin Claus, aged 32 years.  Her disease was pulmonary consumption superinduced by severe and unanticipated hemorrhage of the lungs, which threatened to terminate fatally at the time.  She survived, however, for a season and the hemorrhage was repeated two or three times, reducing her vitality and strength at every repetition.  This occurred in Nebraska, whither she removed with her family about 12 years ago; and, until this first hemorrhage, she appeared to be in excellent health.  Being impressed that the disease would terminate fatally, she returned with her husband to his vicinity, that she might spend her last days among the scenes and friends of her youth.  She had not made a public profession of religion, but her mind was religiously inclined.  About four weeks before her death she was baptized, and received in probation in the M. E. Church.  From that time her religious experience was much more satisfactory than ever before and she experienced the supporting consolations of grace until the last.  Her funeral was very numerously attended, and was unusually impressive.  (Tuesday, June 5, 1877, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
