1881-  Wellsboro Agitator - Obituaries

Joseph Gogel and wife and John Snyder
Jacob Gogel and his wife, Ann Gogel, living four miles from Bethlehem, Pa., were found dead in their bed last week Monday morning.  Their heads were almost severed from their bodies, and a bloody axe was found in the apartment.  The walls were splashed with blood, and altogether the room presented a shocking sight.  Joseph Snyder, who boarded with the Gogels, was believed to be the murderer.  Snyder, who was a man 24 years of age, was found in a neighboring barn, under the straw, at nine a. m.  He was immediately taken back to the house of his victims and questioned as to the murder.  He was cool and collected.  He was interrogated by Rev. Mr. Benley, of Bethlehem, and at once confessed to having committed the crime, telling the story with great deliberation.  He was in love with the eldest daughter of Gogel, aged 16, but was opposed by her parents.  He believed that by killing them all opposition would be removed to his suit.  He had scarcely confessed before a rope was taken from one of the beds up stairs and placed around his neck and he was dragged outside the house and hung to a large chestnut tree.  After being suspended 20 minutes, the body was cut down by the Poorhouse authorities.  The authorities made a vain endeavor to restrain the fury of the mob, Detective Yohe, of Bethlehem, firing at one of the ringleaders without effect.  Several thousand people visited the scene of the tragedy during the day, and the excitement was intense.  Gogel was a day laborer about 40 years of age and leaves three children.  (Tuesday, January 4, 1881, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Jacob Schieffelin
Tioga, January 12, 1881.--Jacob Schieffelin, the elder died in this village on the 27th of last month, of congestion of the lungs after an illness of two weeks.  Many of the 87 years of his life were passed amid scenes and crowded with events of more than ordinary interest.  Jacob Schieffelin was born in the city of New York, April 20th, 1793.  That he developed at an early age unusual ability and energy is attested by the fact that when but 17 he was an Ensign in the militia, at 20 became a Captain, and at 22 was appointed Colonel which position he held until he moved to this county in 1828.  During the war of 1812 he was on garrison duty three or four months.  About the year 1810 he commenced the study of medicine with Dr. Onderdonk, afterward Episcopal Bishop of Pennsylvania.  He attended three courses of lectures at Columbia College, and obtained his diploma at the age of 22.  After graduating at the medical college he entered into partnership with his brother, H. H. Schieffelin.  For the next five or six years his summers were spent in New York and his winters in visiting Charleston, Savannah, Mobile, New Orleans, Havana  and other prominent places, during which time he acquired a fair knowledge of the Spanish language.  In 1838(?) he went to the City of Mexico and opened a branch store, which he conducted for two years and then returned to New York.  While in Mexico he became acquainted with Santa Anna, who was then Lieutenant of cavalry.  In 1827 he purchased several thousand acres of land in Tioga and Lycoming counties, and the year following he moved to Tioga county.  Much of his land was heavily timbered with pine, which he considered of little value, and at different times disposed of portions of it for a mere nominal price.  The tract in Clymer, from which Mr. B. C. Wickham took about $100,000 worth of pine, Mr. Schieffelin exchanged with him for the property now occupied by Col. H. S. Johnston.  Mr. Schieffelin went to California in 1849 and returned the year following.  He was personally acquainted with Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, Robert Emmet, Thomas Paine, Robert Fulton, DeWitt Clinton and many other famous men of past generations. Mr. Schieffelin was a very warm and tender hearted man, and transparently honest and upright in all his business transactions.  In politics he was a Whig until the formation of the Republican party, when he became a strong supporter of that party.  He had no settled religious belief until the advent of Spiritualism of which faith he was an earnest supporter, and accumulated a library of Spiritual works numbering about 300 volumes.  He was well versed in the Holy Scriptures and was always ready to defend his Spiritual belief by quotations from the Bible.  He was a great lover of poetry and could repeat from memory thousands of lines and he had an inexhaustible supply of anecdotes and reminiscences of his early life and manhood, which showed an uncommonly active and retentive memory.  He was married to Elizabeth Black, a cousin of William Black, of the firm of Ball Black & Co., of New York, who survives him.  (Tuesday, January 18, 1881, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Henry Sutton
Last Saturday Mr. Henry Sutton, the railway section boss at Niles Valley, went down to Tioga on the Accommodation train to get a tooth extracted.  He returned to Niles Valley on the evening train and started to walk down the track to his home, about a mile below the depot.  When he had reached a point near the middle of the long trestle work below the Niles Valley station, he was struck by the train of coal dumps coming south, and his body was carried by the engine to the crossing and there dropped.  The engineer knew nothing of the occurrence at the time, and the train proceeded on its way.  Sutton’s body was left where it dropped at the crossing, and the indications where that the whole train of coal dumps passed over it, as did the loaded coal train that went north later in the night.  The fact that the man had been run over was not known until about five o’clock Sunday morning, when his body was found on the track.  The remains then presented a horrible spectacle, the head being torn off and all smashed up, one arm and both legs cut off and the body disemboweled.  An inquest was held by George D. Keeney, Esq., and a jury; but we have not at this writing learned the result of their injuries.  Mr. Sutton’s watch was found somewhat battered and stopped at 9:53.  It seems difficult to account for the fact that Sutton was so long in reaching the point where he was struck, as the train south, on which he came to Niles Valley, reaches that depot at 8:15 p. m.  It is stated that he was a drinking man, and the supposition is that while under the influence of liquor he stopped on the track on the way home; but whether this was the fact nobody seems to know.  Mr. Sutton’s wife died five or six weeks ago, leaving three children, two of whom are grown up.  (Tuesday, May 24, 1881, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Rev. Samuel M. Broakman
Rev. Samuel M. Broakman, a man well known in this county, died at Elmira, NY, yesterday morning.  Mr. Broakman was about 64 years of age, and had resided in this county for 40 years prior to 1862, when he removed to Elmira.  Although he was a regularly ordained Baptist preacher, he worked for a number of years at the carpenter’s trade.  Mr. Broakman built the Poorhouse in this county and also the Parkhurst House in this borough.  (Tuesday, June 7, 1881, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. James Weaver
Arnot, June 4, 1881.--A serious accident occurred near here last evening, Friday, by which Mr. James Weaver, a miner, lost his life.  It has been the custom for some time for the men to run an empty coal dump down the road to Blossburg after the day’s work was done.  The men, six or eight in number started as usual, being under the impression that the regular train had gone.  Soon after they had left Arnot they were surprised to see a train of coal dumps following them at full speed.  Weaver’s companions all jumped off but he no doubt thought by sticking to his post he could run the car into Blossburg ahead of the train.  But when the train struck the car Weaver was thrown against an embankment and his body fell back under the wheels, and 24 coal cars passed over his body.  Both legs were crushed and he was otherwise terribly bruised.  He was taken home and both limbs were amputated, but the poor fellow died soon after.  Weaver was about 27 years of age.  (Tuesday, June 7, 1881, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
