Miss Maggie Mather
Lawrenceville, September 6, 1880.--A sad accident occurred at Lindley, two miles below this village, last Saturday afternoon.  Two little girls, Maggie Mather, aged 10 years, daughter of C. S. Mather, of this place, and Blanche Middlebrook, aged 8 years, daughter of James Middlebrook, of Lindley, were bathing in the race just below Hill’s saw mill during the dinner hour while the mill gate was closed.  The mill was started as usual at one o’clock, the workmen being ignorant of the little girls presence on the premises.  The sudden rise of water carried the two girls out into the main stream.  The children clung together until the current brought them against the bridge pier, when Maggie Mather sank to the bottom never to rise alive, but Blanche managed to keep afloat until the current carried her to the opposite shore about 40 rods distant.  She immediately informed the people at the nearest house of the sad fate of the little Maggie, and a search was instituted for the body which was found some three hours afterward in a deep hole in the river about 50 rods below the mill.  The dead child was taken to the house of the parents at once.  The bereaved parents have the sympathy of the entire community for the loss of a lovely child who was bright beyond her years.  The funeral will be held on Tuesday.  (Tuesday, September 7, 1880, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Minnie Fellows
Mrs. Minnie Fellows, wife of Col. H. F. Fellows and daughter of Capt. Boyden, who departed this life at 9 o’clock yesterday morning, had for some years past been afflicted with an incurable disease of the heart, and her friends knew that her disease would sooner or later prove fatal.  Mrs. Fellows was well adapted to the position she occupied as leader of our social circle, but owing to continued ill health the place which her accomplishments fitted her for has been for some time vacant, and in her decease Springfield society has sustained an irreparable loss.  The heartfelt sorrow of the community in account of the loss of this bright ornament to society is rendered greater by the reflection that her return from the North heralded a new departure in our social life.  But man proposes and Providence disposes.  She is cut off in the flower of her youth-a loss not only to her husband and family but to society at large, for none knew her but to love her.”  Mrs. F. was a member of the Calvary Presbyterian Church, and her life was such that there is no doubt of her reward hereafter, and that she will long be remembered by those who were associated with her.  We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Col. Fellows in his bereavement, and also to her father and mother.  There is no one who has been intimately acquainted with the deceased but can appreciate their loss.--Springfield (Mo, Daily Extra, September 25, 1880).  (Tuesday, October 5, 1880, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Dearman.  Their combined effects at that time did not exceed a thousand dollars. They occupied a store on the corner near the present site of C. D. Markham a drug store.  Two years later they purchased the corner opposite and erected a larger store to accommodate their increasing business.  In 1865 the firm was dissolved by mutual consent, and the business was afterward conducted by Justus Dearman alone.  In 1871 the store and contents were destroyed by fire and two years later the deceased built the magnificent building which was occupied by him until his death.  During a business career of 30 years he showed much skill and act, and his dealings were always characterized by the strictest honesty and minute attention to details.  The accumulation of a large amount of property is a witness to his forethought and skill and another demonstration of what a poor boy may accomplish by strict attention to business, honesty and economy.  His liberality was remarked by all and nearly every subscription list for the benefit of the town was headed by his name with a larger amount than any other.  To his debtors he was lenient and never distressed them.  Everything around him was a model of neatness evidence of which may be found in the arrangement of his store yard and barn, which were arranged under his personal supervision.  By his death Knoxville loses one of her best citizens, one who has done much to make the village what it is.  The funeral services were held on Friday, the 17th, at the Christian church and were conducted by Rev. Walter T. Mills of Starkey Seminary, New York and were largely attended.  His remains were interred in his own lawn surrounded by vines and shrubbery planted by his own hand.  As long as the Cowanesque valley exists so long will live the memory of Justus Dearman, the affectionate brother and noble hearted friend.  (Tuesday, December 28, 1880, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
