Mr. Alexander Pollock
Last Saturday Mr. Alexander Pollock died at his home in this borough after being confined to his bed for several weeks, during which time his physical forces seemed to gradually decline from old age rather than from any organic disease.  All his children were around him in his last hours, and Mr. Pollock died in the full faith of a blessed hereafter and in the comforting knowledge that he had reared a family of children who are respected among men and who have followed in the faith of their father.  Alexander Pollock was born December 6, 1809, in the parish of Campsie, Round Tree Falls, Sterlingshire, Scotland.  His father, James Pollock, was a contractor, and upon his death in 1832 Alexander succeeded to his business, which he followed until 1835.  After that time he turned his attention to mining coal in the pits at Garsharie.  In 1845 he took the contract of mining the coal in the Opencast pit, and after two years he became assistant under-ground superintendent of the company’s works, having especial charge of the air-courses and means for preventing explosions and other accidents.  In 1852 he gave up his position and sailed for America, and he located in Blossburg in July of that year.  Work was scarce and the pay was poor, but he did the best he could under the circumstances and he began as a laborer on the Blossburg railroad.  The same year he purchased from James H. Gulick an old school-house and remodeled it for a dwelling.  The mining of coal was resumed in Blossburg in the fall of 1852, and then Mr. Pollock found employment under John James.  In 1854 he moved to Morris Run where he worked till 1857 and then returned to Blossburg.  In October, 1859, he went to Fall Brook, where as mine foreman he opened the mines of the Fall Brook Coal Company.  He held this position until 1871, and during the time he enjoyed the confidence and personal friendship of John Magee and his son Duncan S. Magee.  He resigned his position and moved to Lawrenceville, where he resided for two years.  Then he returned to Fall Brook.  In January, 1878 he came to Wellsboro, and he resided here continuously until his death.  Mr. Pollock brought to this country a family of six children--Christina, now wife of Peter Cameron, Sr., superintendent of the mines at Houtzdale, Pa.; Alexander, superintendent of the Eagle, Colorado, mines; James, superintendent of the Antrim mines; William, superintendent of Atlantic, No. 2, mine at Houtzdale, Pa; John T., pastor of the First Presbyterian Church at Allentown, Pa., and Andrew J., a merchant now residing at Elmira, NY.  The death of Mr. Pollock is the first in the family since he came to this country.  His children, grand-children and great-grandchildren number about 80.  In early life Mr. Pollock became a member of the established Church of Scotland.  Upon his marriage to Jean Findlater, June 1, 1832, he transferred his relation to the Old Light.  At Gartsharie in 1842 he was elected an elder in what is now the United Presbyterian Church.  At Blossburg he became an elder of the Church formed there in 1852.  He was instrumental in forming a Church at Fall Brook, and he was there chosen to the same office.  He was also an elder of the Presbyterian Church of this borough, thus rounding out a half century of service in the office.  Mr. Pollock was a genial, large-hearted man.  He was of abstemious habits and the rules which governed his life and action were of the strictest sort.  His friends in this county were legion.  The funeral is to be held at the family residence on Meade street this afternoon at 1:30 o’clock.  (Tuesday, January 27, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Dr. Oliver P. Barden, one of Tioga’s best-known physicians, died very suddenly last Monday morning.  He had been assisting his brother, Dr. J. M.

Mr. Mahlon Baker
Mr. Mahlon Baker, a native of Jackson township, was killed at the Elmira, NY bridge works last week Monday.  He was engaged with others in hoisting with a derrick a piece of iron weighing 4,000 pounds.  While the iron was in mid-air one of the derrick-holes broke, causing Baxter to slip and fall directly under the descending piece of irons.  His head fell against one of the pieces of railroad iron on which the material rested when on the ground, and at the same instant the ponderous weight from above fell on his head, crushing it out flat.  It was at least 10 minutes before the piece of iron could be removed, and when it was shifted the sight which greeted the other employees, several of whom narrowly escaped a similar fate, was sickening and distressing.  Baker was 32 years of age.  He leaves a widow and two children.  He was an Odd Fellow, and that society conducted the funeral last Wednesday, the remains being interred in Jackson.  (Tuesday, January 27, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Last Thursday evening Mr. John Sullivan, who had been employed for many years about the place of Mr. John L. Robinson, went to his home on Meade street after finishing his day’s work in apparently his usual health.  He ate his supper, and in the evening he seemed to be in an unusually jovial mood.  He retired shortly after 9 o’clock.  In a few moments his wife and daughter heard him utter an exclamation, and they ran into the bedroom to find Mr. Sullivan dead in bed.  It was thought that the cause of his death was heart-disease; but on that day he had fallen hard on the ice and it is possible that he might have sustained internal injury by the accident.  Mr. Sullivan was 48 years of age.  He was an unobtrusive and industrious man and had the respect of all his acquaintances.  His wife and two daughters survive him.  The funeral was held in St. Peter’s church last Sunday morning, and it was very largely attended.  (Tuesday, February 10, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mrs. Charlotte W. Rowe and Mr. William E. Nicely
Mitchell Creek, Feb. 15.--A sad and double bereavement occurred at the home of Dryden S. Rowe, in this place, last week.  His wife Charlotte W. Rowe, passed away on Monday, February 1st, 1892.  She was 78 years and 6 months.  The funeral was held at the family residence on Thursday, and that same night, a son-in-law, William E. Nicely, who, together with his wife, had made that his home for almost eight years, also breathed his last February 5, 1892, and was buried on the following Sunday.  He was formerly of St. Louis, MO., aged 52 years and 7 months.  Mrs. Rowe was in her 79th year but in full possession of all her faculties and able to be around until the Tuesday before her death, when she was attacked with grip, which settled on the lungs and soon closed a useful and honored life.  As a wife and mother, love and patience were exemplified, while as neighbor and friend a kindly word and helping hand were ever ready for all.  Mr. and Mrs. Rowe celebrated their golden wedding, July 1st, 1882, so they had enjoyed 60 years of happy married life, raising a family of 11 children, eight of whom still survive.  Two sons, Clarence H., of Chicago, and Chauncey K., of St. Paul, Minn., came home in response to telegrams, but owing to sickness of themselves or families, the daughters, who are widely separated, were unable to be present.  Only Mrs. Nicely and the two brothers followed their mother to the grave.  Mr. Rowe was still suffering from the effects of the grip and was unable to leave the house.  Although Mr. Nicely had been an invalid for the last eight years, yet death came very unexpectedly.  A Virginian by birth, he went to Kansas when only 17, engaging in mercantile business in which he continued until entire loss of sight obliged him to give up all business in 1884.  For many years he was engaged with the large wholesale dry-goods house of Dodd, Brown & Co., of St. Louis, and was honored and respected by a large circle of acquaintances.  One brother, Harry C. Nicely, of Philadelphia, attended the funeral.  An aged father and one brother still reside at Leetown, Va., and two brothers in Paola, Kansas.  (Tuesday, February 17, 1892, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
