M. Haverley--and three by the last--Mrs. A. W. Mudge and Messrs. J. W. and E. B. Zimmer--are now surviving.  She came to this county with her last husband, Mr. Hiram Zimmer, in February, 1846, when the farm where she afterward resided and a large tract of land surrounding it, owned by Mr. Zimmer’s father, was a wilderness.  Mrs. Zimmer was a woman of great strength of character, and bore the deprivations of pioneer life with fortitude.  In 1886 she was for the second time left a widow.  She was converted in early life, and upon coming to this county she brought a letter to the Presbyterian Church of Covington, and was a consistent member at the time of her death.  The funeral services were held in the Methodist church at Cherry Flats.  Rev. J. B. Woodward, of Covington, conducted the services, assisted by Rev. James Jones, also of Covington.  (Tuesday, January 31, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Edward A. Fish
Last Friday evening Ex Sheriff Edward A. Fish died of pneumonia at his home on Walnut street in this borough.  He had been sick for several weeks being first prostrated with the grip.  He was 73 years of age.  Edward Anthony Fish was born at Bristol, RI, January 14, 1821.  At the age of 18 he came to this county and located in Sullivan township.  He worked for some time as a carpenter and then drifted into the wagon making business.  In connection with the latter volation he also did something in the line of undertaking for some years.  He was a good merchant and he secured and held a large circle of customers.  He married Miss Sarah Ann Cudworth September 6, 1840 in Sullivan.  Mrs. Fish and one son Mr. James E. Fish and one daughter Miss Anna Fish survive him.  Mr. Fish was elected Constable in Sullivan for several terms and he held the office of Justice of the Peace for 10 years continuously.  In the fall of 1870 he was elected Sheriff of this county and at the end of his term he retired with a competence.  He remained in this borough and afterward became known far and wide as a successful veterinary surgeon.  He was a genial, whole souled man and his popularity among the people was very great.  The funeral was held at the family residence last Sunday morning and the remains were taken to Mainesburg for interment.  (Tuesday, February 7, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

George Case
Last week Tuesday afternoon during the blinding snowstorm the way freight train on the Tioga railroad was approaching the Millerton station when it encountered a heavy snow bank near bridge No. 16, the drift being about five feet deep on the left hand side of the engine.  The snow piled up around the engine’s boiler and was packed solid against the cab door on the left side of the engine forcing this door open, breaking the windows and filling the side of the cab with snow.  After the train had continued for some distance it was discovered that the fireman, George Case was missing.  The train was stopped and a search commenced.  The body of the fireman was found wedged between the brake beam and one of the wheels of the tender.  The clothing on his body had been badly torn, indicating that he had been dragged along for a considerable distance.  After the engine struck the snow drift no one saw Fireman Case until the finding of his lifeless remains.  Engineer James Bonney was busy piloting the engine through the drift, and he didn’t notice that his fireman was missing until a few minutes later.  The railroad men think that Case must have been standing on the left side of the cab and that the sudden collision with the snow drift threw him from his feet and under the train.  The body was caught between the brake-beam and the wheel.  The body was not very badly disfigured.  The right side of the chest was cut where a wheel had rubbed against it, and one of the eyes was blackened.  Case was 38 years of age, and he leaves a widow and two young children.  He had been employed on the Tioga division in the capacity of brakeman and later as fireman for the past 13 years.  The remains were taken to Knoxville last Thursday for interment.  (Tuesday, February 7, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

John Harris
A most disgraceful and serious family row occurred in Sweden township, eight miles from Coudersport on Sunday night the 21st ultimo in which one man was fatally wounded and another badly injured.  Mr. L. C. Root who is a stepson of O. E. Harris, lived on the Herrington farm, near Corsaw’s, with his wife.  Harris has been living with Root for some time past, but, having some trouble left and went to live with his son, John Harris who also lives on a farm about a mile from Root’s.  About 11 o’clock on Sunday night O. E. Harris and his son John armed themselves with an axe and went to the house of Root.  There they chopped down a door, threw an axe at Root and otherwise attempted to injure him.  Root armed himself with a double barreled shotgun and a revolver and as things became too warm for him fired.  The contents of the shotgun took effect in the abdomen and arm of John and one shot from the revolver hit the old man also in the abdomen.  This stopped proceedings at once.  John Harris died from the effects of his wounds on the 27th ultimo.  Root was arrested and then released on $5,000 bail.  The elder Harris was not dangerously hurt.  The cause of the row was some trouble over the deeding of the Harris farm to Root.  (Tuesday, February 7, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Levi Bigelow died at her residence in Bainbridge, NY, on the 6th instant, in the 75th year of her age.  Mrs. Kidder was well known and much beloved in Tioga as she was in the habit for years of spending some time during the autumn season with her sisters, Mrs. A. C. Bush and Mrs. F. E. Smith and her pleasant annual visits were looked forward to with intense pleasure on the part of her numerous friends in that place, who in the light of her bright, happy spirit and loyal attachment to those to whom she professed friendship, always felt better for having been in her presence.  The past few years of her life were partly spent in the city of Washington where she kept house with her daughters, Mrs. Yale and Annah Kidder returning to her county home for the summer months, and she was about to go to the capital city when she was stricken with paralysis which ended her useful life.  Her daughters were in Washington at the time of the attack but they hastened to her bedside and were enabled to administer to her until she fell asleep.  Mrs. Kidder was a devout communicant of the Protestant Episcopal Church and was an ardent admirer of the liturgical form of worship as set forth in the beautiful book of prayer of that Church.  She was devoutly attached to the little Church at Bainbridge where she was ever active in work to further the interests of the parish.  (Tuesday, February 14, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Randall A. Elliott
Mr. Randall A. Elliott, of Charleston had been in very poor health and in nearly a helpless condition for about a year.  He suffered greatly from a peculiar nervous disease which seemed to baffle the skill of the physicians.  Last Wednesday morning he asked his four year old child to hand him a box off the shelf in the room where he was sitting.  The child obeyed and Mr. Elliott supplied the contents of the box which consisted of 19 ¼ gram morphine pills into his hand and swallowed them all.  He then told the child to put the box back in its place.  The child went out to the kitchen and told Mrs. Elliott enough about the incident to alarm her and she came in at once and discovered what her husband had done.  She immediately sent for a physician.  Mr. Elliott very coolly talked about the matter confessing that he had deliberated over it in advance.  He had asked the youngest of his six children to give him the morphine because on account of its tender years the child would have no cause for remorse in the future.  He said he had become tired of living and suffering so much pain and had thus concluded to end it all.  When the physician arrived he was unable to overcome the effect of the dose of morphine and Mr. Elliott soon became unconscious and on Friday morning he passed to that slumber which knows no waking in this world.  Mr. Elliott was about 40 years of age.  He was a good citizen and was esteemed by all his neighbors and friends.  The funeral was held last Sunday at the Cherry Flats Baptist Church.  (Tuesday, February 14, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Kingsland, of Gillett’s, Bradford county, died of diphtheria.  On Tuesday of the week before Mr. Kingsland’s five year old daughter died of the same disease, and the same day his one year old son to all appearances died of the malady.  Two coffins were procured, and when the body of the little boy, whose apparent death had occurred some hours before, was being placed in the little basket, the supposed corpse commenced coughing and some one present gave him some water to drink.  This brought on vomiting, and the child was thus relieved of the poisonous mucous matter.  Ever since then the child’s condition has improved, and he is now on the road to health.  (Tuesday, February 21, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Mr. Clark W. Barlow
Eau Claire, Wis., March 7.--Mr. Clark W. Barlow died at his residence in this city last Monday evening, March 5th, at half past nine.  The funeral at the Lake street Methodist Episcopal church this afternoon was largely attended.  The discourse by Rev. Mr. Case was very appropriate and eloquent.  The floral tributes were beautiful, and the music was all that could be desired.  Mrs. Barlow and her son Fred will accompany the body to their old home in Pennsylvania, departing at 11 o’clock this evening, and the remains will be interred in the Keeneyville cemetery.  Mr. Barlow was born near Wellsboro in the year 1823(or 1828) and resided there continuously for more than half a century.  He received his education at the old historic academy on the hill in that village.  On September 1st, 1853, he was married to Miss Mary Gee, who, with two sons, survives him.  It is unnecessary to recount Mr. Barlow’s many virtues.  They are well known to his Tioga county friends, and will be remembered by his many new friends in the West.  His honesty and uprightness were never brought in question, nor had he an enemy in the world.  He was among those venturesome spirits who, in quest of gold, crossed the great plains and pathless Sierras inhabited only by wild animals and wilder Indians, when that vast empire beyond the Mississippi was little known to man.  Later, he served his country faithfully and well as a member of the 136th regiment of Pennsylvania infantry, receiving an honorable discharge when that regiment was mustered out of the service.  Later still, he was a prospector in the Black hills of Dakota, engaged in business in this city, a grocer in Seattle and finally had entered land in Oregon; but his health failing, he returned to his home in Eau Claire, where, confined in doors the past 7 or 8 months, his strength gradually gave way until life’s volume closed in death.  He suffered intensely and died like a martry, firm in the Christian faith.  E. S. C.  (Tuesday, March 14, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Budding as he gracefully sainted the Colonel on dress-parade 30 years ago.  (Tuesday, March 21, 1894, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)
