LAMKIN, George A-died at his home in Athens, Pa, Thursday morning, November 21, 1907, after an illness of several months. The deceased was born on a farm at Lansing, Tompkins Co, NY, February 1,1854.

In the latter year he began business for himself as a member of the firm Gernert, Lamkin & Moore, in the store on the corner of Canton and Main Streets, now occupied as a drug store by the firm of Carpenter & Pierce. After twenty years of business life in Troy, Mr. Lamkin purchased the shoe store of C H Ballard at Athens, Pa and removed to that place in 1902, where he has since resided.

He was a man of large heart, and warm social nature, easily making friends, and holding them by the sincerity and heartiness of his own friendship.

LINDERMAN JACOB A - The tragic death last week of Jacob A. Linderman, one of Troy's most respected citizens, has brought sorrow to many hearts. Mr. Linderman has been for a number of weeks past on a visit at the home of his brother, James L. Linderman at Osseo, Wisconsin. He left there on Saturday, April 18th, on his return to his home here, where he was expected to arrive on the following Monday. Word was sent from Osseo to his daughter, Mrs. Thaddeus W. Wolfe of Elmira on Monday, to learn if he had reached that city safely. Not knowing of his whereabouts, Mrs. Wolfe in turn sent the message to her nephew, Harry Linderman of Troy, who was also uniformed on the matter. Much anxiety was then felt for the welfare of Mr. Linderman, and greater alarm, was occasioned on learning later of the terrible wreck on the Erie railroad near Salamanca, which occurred on Monday, resulting in a number of deaths of those on board. Telegraph news was received from the scene of the wreck where it was ascertained there were a number of unidentified bodies of those who had met death. James Linderman of Troy, son of the deceased, accompanied by his son-in-law, C. R. Elliott of Elmira, left early Wednesday morning for the scene of the disaster. From the slight remains of one of the bodies, certain well-known pocket articles of metal, coins, etc., were the only means of establishing the identity of Mr. Linderman. The return to Troy with the remains was made on Thursday night. Interment took place at Glenwood cemetery Friday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. J. L. Phoenix officiating. Further service was held on Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the Disciple church, conducted by Rev. Phoenix assisted by the pastor, Rev. L. S. Harrington. Jacob A. Linderman was born in Ithaca, NY, October 5th, 1819, a son of Isaac and Elizabeth Linderman, of German descent. He was on of five children, James L. of Osseo, Wisconsin, Mrs. Sarah Elsworth of Fredericksburg, Iowa, Mrs. C. E. Wells of Iona, Michigan, and Emeline, deceased. His early years were passed in Tompkins county, NY, and in 1839 he removed to Bradford county, PA, with headquarters at Canton, where he operated the first threshing machine used in this county. In May, 1842, he was united in marriage to Olive M., daughter of David and Raphel Williams of Troy township, whose death occurred December 16, 1894. Eight children were born to them, Alvin K. James and George of Troy, Mrs. Thaddeus Wolfe of Elmira, and the others deceased, Sarah E., who was the wife of the late Uel C. Porter of Troy, Alice and Vandalia, who died in infancy, and Eugene, who died in August, 1874. Mr. Linderman had been a resident of Troy since 1842, and for over forty years resided on the farm he lately occupied. He was one of our well known and public-spirited citizens, and a man of great integrity, always interested in the welfare of those with whom he associated. The sympathy of all is with the bereaved family.

LONG, Brewster A. - Sudden Death of Brewster A. Long - At the close of one of his most comfortable days in more than a year of serious illness, Brewster A. Long dropped peacefully away at his home in Centre Street at 6:15 Monday evening, Nov. 5th. While it was known the end at best was not far off and that it would come probably suddenly, neither his immediate family nor the public were prepared for the announcement of Mr. Long's death. The nature of his trouble, Bright's disease, was such that he was not for a single whole day confined to his bed. He was about the house and yard Monday and as late as 6 o'clock held quite an extended conversation with a business caller. He ate supper as usual. Soon afterward he complained of feeling badly. Mrs. Long telephoned at his request for the family physician, Dr. Barker, for Mrs. and Mrs. Bailey, relatives, and for his attendant, Mr. Hoff. All responded promptly but before they came, he died. Few residents of Troy were better known than Brewster A. Long. He was unusually active as a boy and young man and so continued through a long career of public and private usefulness. He was a son of Volney M. and Emily Pomeroy Long and he was born in the first Troy House, this boro, Oct. 2, 1842. He was an apt pupil of the Troy academy and of Dickinson Seminary, Williamsport. In early manhood he was associated for a term of years with his father in the conduct of the Troy House under the firm name of Volney M. Long & Son. Brewster was the buyer and he contributed in no small degree toward maintaining the splendid reputation of the house far and near as a model place of public entertainment. Some time before his father's death Mr. Long withdrew from the hotel and interested himself in various business enterprises on his own account. His love of horses took him into the livery business and breeding on quite an extensive scale. One of his last sales of importance was a Fullerton 3-year old something over a year ago for $1,000. He conducted a successful fire insurance agency, a wholesale and retail ice business, ran a dray line and farmed a large tract for many years. For approximately thirty years he had been the local agent of the Adams Express company. This appointment he held at the time of his death. For about the same period he had been a justice of the peace. Reelection term after term testified to popular confidence in his intelligence and integrity of character and purpose. His first wife, the mother of his daughters, Mrs. G. A. Lamkin of Athens, Mrs. A. M. Baker of Towanda and Mrs. W. J. Ruggles of Towanda, was Louise Colborn who died May 7th, 1893. January 4, 1902, he married Miss Addie Morse, who survives him. The immediate family circle includes also - Mrs. Alonzo Thomas of Alba, and Mrs. Thomas McCabe of Buffalo, sisters, and Mrs. B. L. Truman of Owego. He was an attendant of the First Presbyterian church. The funeral at 2 Thursday afternoon from the home will by conducted by the Rev. Edward P. Morse, his pastor, assisted by Dr. J.
