CANFIELD - JENNINGS, Myrna L.
Anna Belle CARNOCHAN (SRGP 77292)
FRED PARSONS CARNOCHAN -died at his home in Harrisburg, Pa., Monday January 27th, 1908 following an illness of three weeks. At first attacked by the grippe his condition soon became serious, owing to a weak heart, and death finally resulted from pneumonia. He is survived by his loving wife, Edna, two daughters, Ethel and Janet, aged five and three years respectively, mother, Sophia L, sister, Belle, and brother, Dr. John M. of Princeton, NJ, all of whom were with him during his last hours. The funeral was held from his late home Wednesday morning following his death, Rev. A. F. Anderson officiating, and was concluded at Troy in the afternoon of the same day, Rev. E. P. Morse conducting the services at the grave. The pallbearers were six of his office men. They also accompanied his remains to Troy with his immediate relatives, Mr. T. N. Funston, Mr. H. A. Metzger, Assistant General Agent and five of is traveling salesmen, A number of relatives and personal friends met the funeral party at the railroad station and accompanied it to the family lot in Glenwood Cemetery where the interment was made. Mr. Carnochan was born in Troy, Pa, September 19th, 1867. In the year 1876 his father, the late Warner H Carnochan, a prominent lawyer and partner of the Hon. W. T. Davies, moved with his family to Towanda. He attended the public schools of Towanda until his father’s death which occurred in 1881. After taking a course in the Rochester Business University he entered the office of his uncle, John A Parsons, of Troy, where he remained until the summer of 1886. At the age of nineteen he left Troy to begin his business life in the west; first residing at Minneapolis and later at Huron, Sioux Falls, Saint Paul, Detroit and Saint Louis. Three years ago he moved to Philadelphia and later to Harrisburg, where he resided until the time of his death. With the exception of the first year or two after leaving Troy his whole business life was devoted to the sale of agricultural implements, principally as a branch manager. His connection has been with large manufacturers, including the Walter A. Wood Harvester Co., and D. N. Osborne & Co. In 1900 the latter company sent him to Europe and South America on an important business mission. The old companies were absorbed by the International Harvester Company of America, for whom he was General Agent of the Osborne division. Mr. Carnochan was married November 10, 1898 to Miss Edna P Funston of St Louis and a very happy home resulted from this union.
The funeral of W H CARNOCHAN (SRGP 77288) held at the Presbyterian Church on Sunday afternoon was a remarkable gathering of representative men of Bradford County such as is rarely seen together. The special train supplied by the courtesy of the Lehigh Valley, which arrived from Towanda at 1:30 with the body and the immediate friends, brought nearly all the members of the Bradford Co Bar and a number of private citizens from Towanda, Athens and Elmira. It was met at the depot by a large deputation of citizens who escorted the company to the village. The church was tastefully and elegantly decked with flowers and badges of mourning. The front of the Engine House was draped in mourning in remembrance of the ex-chief of the department. In the church Miss Angie Aspinwall presided at the organ. Rev. C L Connell read the hymn and Rev G P Sewall the Scripture lesson. Rev. J B French followed with prayer, and Rev. J S Stewart of Towanda, with a short, beautifully-worded discourse on the text "It is appointed unto man once to die." The casket was beautifully decked with floral emblems and a silver plate bearing the name and age of the deceased. In looking over the large congregation that filled the audience room and adjacent parlors one was struck by the large number of representative men who had come to do honor in the last sad rites to one they had known so well. From Elmira, Robert Neilson, Sup’t of the Northern Central, G M Diven, M W Serat, Sup’t of the U I & E Railroad, F E Fitch, E B Youmans, Esq., W Jones, W T Post and others, I N Evans, J F Maynard, W A Plummer of the Athens Gazette, Fred Evans, E Mills and others from Athens. The pallbearers were the following gentlemen from Towanda: Judge P D Morrow, H N Williams, Elbanan Smith, D A. Overton, W J Young, N C Elsbree, B M Peck, Gen H J Madill. The ceremonies were under the charge of Captain B B Mitchell and were characterized by the good taste and quietness so grateful to the large number of sincerely mourning hearts. After leaving the church C F Sayles conducted the ceremonies with his usual good taste. At the close of the service, the music of which had been furnished by a quartette choir consisting of Mrs. C F Paine, Miss Anna Compton, Fred Moore and Geo Roosa, the body was borne to the entrance where the numerous friends came to view it, many with tearful eyes. The members of the Bradford County Bar each wearing a white button-hole bouquet formed in line with uncovered heads as the casket and mourners passed. Among those from Towanda we noted W B Dodge, E Buffington, F E Myers, S R Payne, W Maxwell, C B Porter, Geo W Ennis, F J Calkins, E C Shaw, I McPherson, S W Little, E A Thompson, A J Layton, C D Humphrey,L Elsbree, R A Mercur, T C Disbrow, J W Codding, Senator, W T Davies, partner of the deceased and wife, Mrs. E O Goodrich, James Wood, E T Fox, Mr. & Mrs. Carson, T C Delano, E J Angle, L M Hall, S W Alvord, W Stevenson, of Sayre, Adam Innes, Valentine Saxton, of Granville Center, J W Brown, E E Bostworth, Andrew Fee, of Wyalusing, J H Shaw, B L Wright, M E Lilley, A B Bowman, E J Cleveland, W C Sechrist, E H Thomas, D P Elliott of Canton, F F Drake and E P Ingham of Laporte. A very long procession slowly moved to beautiful Glenwood on that lovely Sabbath afternoon, the emblem of rest and peace, and there under the shadow of the trees laid the body of our mourned, honored friend.
CARNOCHAN - William E Carnochan - (1931) Dread of slow death drove
William E Carnochan to swift suicide yesterday. He leaped from a penthouse of
the eighteen-story apartment building at 40 Fifth Ave, where Justice Joseph F
Crater lived before he vanished. Carnochan was 63, a bachelor, prominent
socially and a member of Parsons, Closson & McIlvaine, attorneys of 52
William St. For several months he had suffered from despondency and had told
his sister, Mrs. Sara Willard of Troy, Pa. that he would kill himself rather
than die of cancer. Friends sought to assure the lawyer that he merely
suffered from spells of dizziness and urged him to take a vacation. He returned
to town with Mrs. Willard Wednesday evening, after resting in Troy for five
weeks. He complained he could not sleep and refused to go to bed. When Mrs.
Willard retired early yesterday, Carnochan put on his hat, walked out on the
roof, climbed over the parapet and plunged to the pavement. He was born in
Troy, was graduated from Williams College and was a member of the Williams
University and Lawyers’ clubs.
