Mrs. Anton Hardt
The citizens of this borough were startled last Wednesday afternoon by the report that Mrs. Anton Hardt had died at the family residence on Main street.  Although she had been in precarious health for some time, she had been able to be about the house until the Friday before her death, when she was prostrated by an attack of typhoid fever.  There was apparently no immediate danger of a fatal result until about an hour before her death, when she was rendered unconscious by a spasm which evidently affected the heart, and she remained in this state until she quietly died shortly after 3 o’clock.  Mrs. Hardt, whose maiden name was Alvina Josephine Koch, was born at Berg, Wurtemberg, Germany, December 5, 1842.  Her family came to this country when she was quite young and settled at Williamsport, where she remained until her marriage to Mr. Hardt, December 2, 1866.  For several years past she had been a resident of this borough, where she was well known and most highly esteemed.  Socially she was a lady of the finest qualities--considerate of others, kind-hearted and charitable in all her words and acts, and it is safe to say that no person ever heard from her lips a censorious criticism of anybody.  But her thoughts and feelings all centered in her home, where she exercised the gentle sway of a most loving and cherishing mother and an affectionate wife.  It is inevitable that her loss must there be most keenly felt as irreparable.  Mrs. Hardt was a member of St. Paul’s Church, and her life honored her Christian profession.  She was ever ready to advance every good work, and she was quick to do all she could to promote the prosperity of the Church of her love.  Her funeral was held in the church Friday afternoon and was largely attended by residents of our borough and county and by numerous friends of the family from Corning, Watkins and Williamsport.  The rector of the parish, Rev. A. W. Snyder, made some most appropriate remarks during the service, in the course of which he spoke in the highest terms of the womanly graces and Christian character of the deceased, fitly applying to her Solomon’s description of the virtuous woman, whose “price is far above rubies,” in whom “the heart of her husband doth safety trust,” and whose children “arise up and call her blessed.”  Mrs. Hardt leaves five children--two daughters and three sons--who with their bereaved father must ever cherish the sweet and tender memories of the good mother and wife who has gone before.  (Tuesday, September 9, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Hannah M. Jones
Mrs. Hannah M. Jones, of Delmar, died last Thursday at the age of 82 years.  The funeral was held at the home of her son, H. E. Jones, on Friday, and the interment was at the West Branch cemetery.  (Tuesday, September 9, 1890,  The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Williston, of this borough.  (Tuesday, September 9, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. F. C. Washburn
Last Saturday night Mr. F. C. Washburn, the well-known gunsmith, died very suddenly at his home on East avenue, of heart-disease.  Mr. Washburn had been in his usual health on Saturday.  In the evening he came downtown and attended to his marketing for Sunday and returned home and went to bed as usual.  About midnight he awoke in great distress and arose and went into the pantry, and took a dose of medicine such as had helped him in former similar attacks.  He then sat down upon the side of the bed, but he soon became unconscious and died in a few minutes.  Mr. Washburn was 56 years of age.  He was born at Gibson, Susquehanna county, his family being among the most prominent in that region.  He learned the trade of a machinist and worked for several years in the railroad shops at Scranton.  He went to California in the early days of the State, but returned East on account of his wife’s failing health.  He came to this place from Canton and started a gun shop about 12 years ago.  Mr. Washburn was an excellent citizen, a genial companion and a remarkably ingenious mechanic.  He had a host of friends and no enemies.  He leaves a widow, three daughters and two sons.  The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon, when Rev. O. S. Chamberlayne conducted the service.  (Tuesday, September 9, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

A few days ago a sad accident occurred at Brookland, Potter county, by which Mr. Charles Leach, a young man of 22 years, was instantly killed.  A party of workmen were threshing at Mr. Blake’s, near the new church, and young Leach was cutting the hands on the bundles of grain, which his father was pitching to him.  He stood on the platform beside the machine and reached up to pull down some loose straw from the scaffold above.  His foot slipped or something gave way beneath him and he fell, one arm plunging into the teeth of the cylinder.  The man who was feeding clasped the poor fellow in his arms, but the swiftly whirling teeth caught the hand as it went in, drew the arm in and tore it off, mangled the shoulder frightfully, and tore off the side of the head.  He was instantly killed.  (Tuesday, November 11, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Thomas Brooks
Last Wednesday evening Mr. Thomas Brooks, a well known Blossburg citizen who kept a hotel, and brewery in the southern outskirts of that borough, was instantly killed by being struck by a special train on the Arnot railroad.  It is supposed that Mr. Brooks was walking on the track on his way home and mistook the noise of the approaching train for that of the tannery.  Only a few moments before the accident he had been talking with several persons on the street.  The engineer of the train knew nothing of the accident until he was on the return trip from Blossburg, when the train was signaled by a lumberman who had stumbled over Mr. Brook’s body which was mangled almost beyond recognition.  Mr. Brooks had suffered from heart-disease for years and some members of his family think that he fell upon the track and was probably dead before the train came along.  The engineer claims that he would have seen a man walking or standing upright.  Mr. Brooks was 60 years of age.  He leaves a widow, five sons and one daughter.  (Tuesday, November 11, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Benjamin Franklin Milliken
Last Friday morning Mr. Benjamin Franklin Milliken died of dropsy at his home on Water street after a long sickness.  Some seven or eight years ago Mr. Milliken while at the depot dropped a box of goods against his right leg, causing a slight injury above the ankle.  He thought little of it, although it caused a lameness for many days.  After a few months the wound resulted in a very obstinate ulcer, which could not be healed and which no doubt was primarily because of his death.  For the past six or seven months Mr. Milliken had been unable to attend to business and he had steadily failed in strength.  He had remarkable courage, however, and up to the last his heart was filled with the hope of recovery.  Mr. Milliken was born at Deckerstown, NJ, June 5, 1852.  He came to this borough in 1869 from Elmira, NY, and for several years he clerked in the grocery store of Mr. A. Gardner.  In 1875 he bought out the bakery of Messrs. Wetmore & Wonder and since that time he had been identified with the business interests of the place.  A few years ago he became a member of the firm of L. A. Gardner & Co, but he retired from the concern and opened a restaurant at 102 Main street.  Last spring he formed a partnership with Mr. O. G. Padgett in the bakery and grocery trade.  He was married June 15, 1874 to Miss Lucy R. Navle, who with one daughter survives him.  The funeral was held at the family residence on Sunday afternoon at 3 o’clock.  Rev. O. S. Chamberlayne conducted the religious service and Mr. Luther H. Johnson, Chaplain of Tyoga Lodge No. 230 read the Odd Fellows burial service.  Six officers of the Canton Keystone acted as pall bearers and the whole Canton appeared in full uniform as a special escort.  At the grave the Canton performed the beautiful burial service of the Patriarche Militant.  The members of Tyoga Lodge attended the funeral in a body also the members of Alert Hose Company.  The floral offerings were exceedingly beautiful, prominent among them being a figure “2” of pearl roses and white chrysanthemums from members of Alert Hose Company.  (Tuesday, November 11, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Last Friday Mr. C. A. Benson, of Pine Valley, NY, was instantly killed by being crushed under the wheels of a train at the Water street crossing in Elmira.  Benson was seen to come out of Durland & Pratt’s dry goods store and run under the gate, apparently heedless of the approach of the train.  His body was horribly crushed under the wheels.  Mr. Benson’s two daughters, young women, were waiting for him to meet them at a store down town, and when they learned of his death they were completely prostrated.  Benson was a well to do citizen, a widower, and about 50 years of age.  (Tuesday, November 18, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Westfield, November 22, 1890.--The people of our borough were startled last Tuesday morning by the announcement of the death of Mrs. E. G. Davidge, which occurred about midnight on Monday.  She had been sick some weeks, first with nervous prostration and then with intermittent fever which assumed a pernicious character, and although not entirely unexpected her death occasioned wide spread sorrow in the community.  Harriet Rich Davidge was 92 years of age and was the daughter of Mr. George E. Rich, a leading business man at Owego, NY.  She became the wife of Mr. E. G. Davidge, a member of the tanning firm of H. H. Crary & Co., in 1875, and immediately after their marriage the couple came to this place, where Mr. Davidge‘s business interests were located.  The young wife soon became a leader in social life and in all good works at her new home, and she grew to be very dear to a large circle of friends.  She was foremost in advancing every good cause, an active helper of all the Churches and a munificent friend of the struggling poor, for whom her purse-strings were ever loosed.  Never has Westfield more deeply mourned the death of any citizen, and the bereaved husband and two little daughters have the sympathy of the whole community in their great loss.  (Tuesday, November 25, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

A terrible accident resulting in the death of Frank Hoffman, occurred on the 22d instant in the woods about six miles west of Smethport, McKean county.  The Miner says that two brothers, Frank and George Hoffman were at work trailing logs that day.  Frank was driving the team which was somewhat restive, when a chain broke.  Frank not thinking of the back of his trail, stopped the horses and had just thrown the lines over their backs when the end of a 16 foot log struck him near the hips jamming him against an ironwood tree with terrific force and holding him as if in a vise.  The unfortunate man was soon released and medical aid was summoned when it was found that the hip bones were all broken, in fact that the man’s hips had been literally crushed.  He lived in this condition for several hours, retaining consciousness up to the time of his death.  The remains were taken to St. Mary’s, Elk county, where he formerly resided.  (Tuesday, December 2, 1890, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
