Hon. B. B. MITCHELL. (SRGP 77150) Death of One of Troy’s Most Prominent and Respected Citizens. Funeral Services Held at His Late Home This Afternoon. The Hon. Benjamin B. Mitchell was born in Tioga Co., Pa., January 14, 1839. His father, Richard Mitchell, who was of Scotch Irish descent, was one of the first settlers of Tioga county. Mr. Mitchell’s education was obtained in the schools of his native county, supplemented by studies at Lewisburg University, and at the Bryant and Stratton Business college in Buffalo, N.Y. At the age of 21 he came to Troy, Pa., and began his business life by establishing a drug and book store. The following year, in August 1862, in response to President Lincoln’s call for men to defend the Union he assisted in recruiting and organizing the first cavalry company in Bradford Co., was chosen first lieutenant, and with his company joined the Eleventh Pennsylvania Cavalry. The next year he was promoted to Captain. Having served beyond the three years for which he enlisted, and his health having become seriously impaired, he declined the offer of promotion to the rank of Major, and returned to his home in Troy in the autumn of ’64. May 29, 1865, Captain Mitchell was united in marriage to Miss Ellen E., only daughter of the late Samuel W. Pomeroy of this village. To this union were born seven children, two sons and five daughters. Two of the daughters died in infancy. The oldest son, Pomeroy Mitchell, died at the age of twelve. The other four children together with his wife, and four of his sisters survive him. After disposing of his drug and book business he entered into partnership with his father-in-law in the banking business under the firm name of Pomeroy & Mitchell, successors to Pomeroy Brothers. He continued in this business after the death of Mr. Pomeroy, until this bank was consolidated with the First National Bank of Troy a few years ago. He also had extensive business interests in the west. Capt. Mitchell held various local offices in Troy borough at different times. He was especially interested in the public schools, and served for many years on the Board of Education. To stimulate excellence in English spelling he established the B. B. Mitchell Gold Medal Prize, to be awarded each year to the student of the Troy high school sustaining the highest average in spelling contest. From 1882 to 1884 he was a member of the lower house of the state legislature. In 1892 he was elected to the state Senate, and reelected in 1896 serving altogether ten years in the two houses. Besides serving on many other important committees he was chairman of the Com. On Mines and Mining during his first term to the senate, and of the Com. On Banks and Loan Associations during his second term. Capt. Mitchell was a member of the Gustin Post G.A.R., taking an active part in the annual memorial services. He was also a member of the Loyal Legion, and of the Masonic order. He united with the Presbyterian church on confession of his faith in Christ, May 5, 1871. In 1873 he was elected to the office of deacon for the term of three years. By successive re-elections he held that office continuously until the time of his death, acting also as treasurer of the deacons’ fund. He was also actively identified with the Sunday school. In this he served for a time as a teacher, and also as superintendent. As a member of the Bible class he was especially noted for the regularity of his attendance. For more than a year immediately preceding his last illness he did not miss a single Sabbath. For some years past Capt. Mitchell’s health had at times been a cause of anxiety to his family. Last fall a change for the worse led him to go to Philadelphia for medical advice. After spending considerable time there he and his wife went to Florida, stopping at Palm Beach and later at St. Augustine. The temporary benefit of the change having died they returned to Philadelphia early in April. His condition soon became so alarming that it was decided to return at once to his home. Here the last month was spent in much suffering, and in a steady decline, broken now and then by brief intervals of apparent improvement followed by a speedy relapse, until the end came peacefully, after a night of unconsciousness, at 9 o’clock Tuesday morning, May 24. The funeral services were held at his late home on Thursday afternoon, May 26, conducted by his pastor, Rev. E. P. Morse, assisted by Rev. T. A. Hughes of the Baptist church; and the burial services were conducted by the Grand Army Post at the family vault in Glenwood cemetery. TGR 1904

Ency MITCHELL Calkins. (SRGP 80686)
The subject of this notice, Mrs. Ency Mitchell Calkins, was a well known and highly respected citizen of our town may years ago, and will be pleasantly remembered by the older citizens.

Calkins, September 22nd, 1852, and immediately began her residence in Troy. She afterwards moved to Towanda where Mr. Calkins died in 1882. After his death she removed to Corning, and resided for several years, thence to the far west to make a home for her children, whom she showed rare courage and devotion in rearing, and lived to be rewarded by seeing them happily settled in life. She was the mother of three children, Ella who died in 1863, and buried in Glenwood, Belle, now Mrs. Hamilton, and Raymond, both of Chicago. She died in Chicago, Saturday, October 10th. Her remains were brought to Troy and funeral held from the home of her brother, Capt. B. B. Mitchell, Monday afternoon, and conducted by Rev. E. P. Morse of the Presbyterian church.

Nannie Brown Mitchell Wife of Ernest L. Teeter, whose death on Wednesday of last wee was briefly recorded in the last issue of this paper, was born in Troy August 18, 1871. She was the third child of the late Capt. Benjamin B. Mitchell and Mrs. Ellen Pomeroy Mitchell. The household in which her early life was spent consisted of her grandfather and grandmother, the late Mr. and Mrs. Samuel W. Pomeroy, her father and mother, and her brothers and sisters. The only surviving members of this large household are her mother, one brother, and two sisters; and older sister and a younger brother having died in childhood. In this family circle Mrs. Teeter grew to womanhood, through a sunny, happy childhood. Her early education was in the public schools of Troy, from which she graduated in 1887. Entering Elmira College the same year she graduated from that institution in 1891. To the liberal education thus acquired she added the information and broadened mental outlook gained from travel in her own country and in other lands. One of these journeys, occupying several months, was in 1893, and included the southern states, Mexico, and California. In 1899 she joined the Misses Llewellyn of Shamokin, Pa., in a year of travel and study in Europe. And in 1904 she accompanied her mother on a tour of the Mediterranean, visiting Egypt, Palestine, and various places in southern Europe. With the exception of such brief periods of absence Mrs. Teeter’s whole life was spent in her native village. Here she entered heartily into all plans for promoting the educational, social, and religious welfare of the community. Eminently qualified for usefulness along these lines she gave freely of her time and strength to every interest that appealed to her. In particular she was devoted to religious work in connection with the Presbyterian Church, of which she became a member at the age of fifteen, and in which she found opportunity to use for her Master the talents with which she had been entrusted. Her special departments of church service were the Sunday School, the Christian Endeavor Society, and the Young Ladies’ Mission Circle, Quiet unassuming, faithful efficiency characterized her church life, and the impress of that life will long be felt. She was also a member of the Chemung chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution; and of the Ladies’ Progress Club of Troy. In social relations she was of a retiring disposition, free alike from any assertion. She shrank from giving pain; and habitually made her own feelings and wishes ubordinate to those of her friends. She had the happy faculty of seeing the good in the people sbout he, and of overlooking the things that were disagreeable. Her unselfishness characteristic cheerfulness, and genial friendliness made her a favorite with all who knew her. With qualities that fitted her for intellectual and social activities, her tastes were nevertheless strongly domestic. She loved her home, and found pleasure in the common cares of housekeeping and home-making. June 27, 1906, she was united in marriage to Mr. Ernest L. Teeter of Troy, and soon after went to reside in the beautiful home purchased and fitted up for her on Elmira street. Nothing seemed lacking to complete the happiness of the new home. But it was only a few short months before symptoms of her failing health began to appear. A change of climate was tried, and the help of the best medial skill available was sought, but without permanent benefit. After a time, for the greater convenience of caring for her, she was removed to the home of her mother. Here amid the surroundings of her girlhood, ministered to by the loving care of mother, husband, and other loved ones, she passed the months of slow decline, interrupted by periods of slight improvement, followed in each case by greater prostration. She remained through it all hopeful, cheerful, uncomplaining, thinking and planning for those about her, until at length her extreme weakness indicated that the end was drawing near. In the early morning of Wednesday, March 11th, she passed into unconsciousness, and lingered in this condition until early in the afternoon, slowly breathing her life out. Just at the last there passed over her face a radiant smile, as though the eyes that had caught a glimpse of the heavenly glory. “So he giveth his beloved sleep.” The funeral was held on Saturday afternoon. In the room where less than two years ago she stood a happy bride the body rested in a bed of flowers, the gifts of loving friends. The services were conducted by her pastor, the Rev. E. P. Morse. The remains were taken to Glenwood cemetery, followed by a large concourse of friends, and were laid to rest in the Pomeroy-Mitchell vault.

PAMELA A. MORGAN. On the morning of Sunday, September 23rd, 2001 lifelong Canton resident Pamela Antoinette Morgan, 53, died quietly at Robert Packer Hospital after a courageous battle with cancer. Born in Sayre, on December 28th, 1947, she was the first of four children in the family of Roland and Rosanne (Faulkner) Morgan. She was the consummated big sister, always concerned with the welfare of her younger sister and brothers. Her early experience with children may be what led her to pursue a career in the teaching profession. Miss Morgan was a graduate of Canton High School, Class of 1965, and a graduate of Mansfield University. In 1971 she began teaching in the English Department of Towanda High School, where she quickly developed the reputation of being a most dedicated teacher. It was the kind of sincere dedication to which young teenagers can relate; much more than a teacher, but a friend as well. And yet, her students always knew who was in charge. She served for many years as the school’s drama coach. She designed and built magnificent sets for the school plays, often deliberately forgetting to get reimbursed for her out of pocket expenditures. She was a mentor for new teachers in the school, and was a member of the staff development committee. She was as generous as she was dedicated. Often, before the start of the school day, she would bring baked goods and coffee in to share with those students who might not have had a decent breakfast. She also made sure that those in need had something to open on Christmas morning by providing gifts for them. She endeared herself so much to her students that the Class of 2001 dedicated its yearbook to her. Memberships included being a member of the American Association of University Women, past President and current Vice President of Bradford County Action, past President of the former Canton Business and Professional Women’s Club and the Towanda Education Association and the Canton Chapter #71 OES. She enjoyed golfing and was a member of the Corey Creek Golf Club, as well as the Wheel Inn Club. She also enjoyed Renaissance music and dancing whenever possible, she enjoyed trips to the family retreat in Ontario. She had a dry sense of humor and was an avid fan of the British sitcoms on PBS. Miss Morgan enjoyed making intricate quilts, and often gave them as gifts. She was a woman of deep faith in the Lord and was a member of the Canton Ecumenical Parish, and always could be counted upon to teach a Vacation Bible School class. Her penchant for enlightening young minds also extended to their spiritual wellbeing. Surviving are her mother, Rosanne Morgan, at home; brother Mitchell (and Barbara) Morgan, Turbotville, PA; sister Leila (and Barry) Snyder, Cadillac, MI; sister-in-law Nettie Morgan, Canton; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Roland and brother Thomas. A memorial service and celebration of her life will be celebrated Saturday, September 29th, at the Canton Ecumenical Parish, 43 N. Center St., Canton, at 2 p.m., with Pastors Dean Walrath and Nancy Lee Goff officiating. The family will receive friends from 1-2 p.m. at the Canton Ecumenical Parish.
