Tri County Clippings - Troy Register 1900
|These clippings from ancient
and fragile newspapers stored above the Troy Gazette-Register office are
being typed by Tri-County volunteers for presentation on site. Primarily
we are preserving the neighborhood news columns and the obituary, marriage
and birth information included in them. I intend also to include articles
that show the influences on the lives and attitudes of our local populations
at the time, and I will also illustrate the individual pages with ads from
the era. Nothing is more revealing of lifestyle than the goods and services
The TR and its successor, TGR covers the area of all townships surrounding Troy and many neighborhoods have a local column submitted, but not necessarily every week or even every year.
Our thanks goes to the staff of the Troy Gazette-Register for giving us access to this valuable old news so that we can share it with you. There is no better way to understand the culture and customs of our old communities than by sifting through these clippings. Even the names of some of these old communities have ceased to exist in today's world, but we have them captured and preserved here. If you do not have the time to enjoy the luxury of sifting through clippings, these will be included in the Partitioned PICO Search Engine which you can reach from current What's New Page of the site. There is a partition just for the TGR Clippings.

Nineteenth Year, #921, Wednesday, February 21, 1900
Reception and Benefit Given Rev. Emma E. Bailey and Her Mother, Mrs. Eliza W. Bailey, at Troy, Pa.
The day chosen for this pleasant event, February 14th, 1900, calm, bright and beautiful, and by noon the parlors of All Soul’s church, where it took place, were thronged by a happy and delighted people, the friends gathering to the number of over one hundred from Troy, Springfield, Columbia, Alba and other places. The ministry, the other professions and the business of the place were well represented, the men and their wives coming together, giving christian fellowship and cheery influence, good will and peace abundant.
All of the friends by natural impulse seemed drawn to Mrs. Bailey, the centre of attraction, who from her injury not yet able to stand alone, sat in her easy chair, amid the beautiful decorations of the receiving room, and underneath the banner inscribed with the figures, 1810 and 1900, and draped with white tarlatan and evergreen, combining well with the picture about her, in her black silk dress, white lace cap, white mantle thrown about her shoulders, and with two delicate pink roses pinned upon her breast, a loving remembrance from a friend. For hours she sat, a sweet and dignified embodiment of life and loving ecstasy, scarcely showing the mark of her may years, and receiving the loving words and tender congratulations of the many friends, which were showered upon her.
At noon and thereafter the bounteous tables, spread by the ladies of All Soul’s church, and sweet with their pretty flowers and ferns, were well filled until all were served, and then the attention of the company was called by the pastor, Rev. E. E. Bailey, to the program arranged for the day.
All were requested to join in the singing of "Nearer, My God to Thee," and also to repeat together the 23rd Psalm. Rev. E. P. Morse of the Presbyterian church offered a very appropriate and fervent prayer, drawing all hearts heavenward and into that love which embraces all humanity. The "Sweet Hour of Prayer" was sung, with fine accord of spirit, and then Miss Bailey introduced Rev. Amanda Deyo of Springfield, who spoke very kind and appreciative words as to the pastor’s and her mother’s ministry in this section of country, concluding with an eulogy on christian and humanitarian unity among denominations and peoples. The many letters of congratulation, good wishes and regrets at not being able to be present, received by Mrs. Bailey, the nonagenarian, from her friends at a distance, were brought forward and some of them were read by Miss Bailey, one from the mother’s far away son, Y. Murray Bailey of San Francisco, Cal., and her daughter, Mrs. Y. H. Olmstead of Des Moines, Iowa, producing especial pathos and interest, Mr. A. S. Hooker gave words of reminiscence as to the olden Lima, N. Y. days, when he and the Bailey family were mutually connected with the Genesee Wesleyan College there, and also historical points embraced in the long life of Mrs. Bailey. Rev. E. P. Morse added some fine patriotic and religious remarks, and then Mrs. Bailey gave a few words in response in a voice full and unfaltering, indicative of the youthfulness of a spirit that can never grow old, and expressing her supreme faith in her Savior and God, who has sustained her through all these 90 years. Mrs. Bailey recited two olden time poems and sung one ancient song of her girlhood, all of which were heartily received. "Aunt Martha Bullock," herself and octogenarian, sang pathetically "When Shall We All Meet Again?" and the program closed with a few remarks from Miss Bailey, expressing her gratitude to and her love for the people of Troy and Vicinity; and by the singing with clasped hands of the sweet hymn, "God be with You ‘till We Meet Again," and by the benediction from Rev. Mr. Morse. The company broke up in a happy and united frame of mind, and with many expressions as to the extreme pleasures and interest of the day.
Mrs. Bailey was the recipient of many gifts upon this her 90th birthday, among them being some carefully selected books, choice fruits, wearing apparel, a lovely growing plant from a W.C.T.U. sister, emblemmatical of a new life here and hereafter, and a box of flowers and other offerings from the parish of other days in Mansfield, Pa. The gifts in money from the Troy church, the home friends and those of the vicinity, and from relatives and friends at a distance, amounted to nearly $70. Among the great pleasures of the time was the unexpected arrival of Miss Nellie C. Martin of Providence, R.I., a very dear and highly esteemed friend of the family of the old Lima days, and a parishioner with her family of Rev. J. W. Bailey, the deceased husband of Mrs. E. W. Bailey, for many years a minister in the state of New York.
During the day many regrets were expressed as to Miss Bailey’s recent resignation of the Troy church, and also pleasant feelings that she and her mother are still to remain with us. Since the reception Mrs. Bailey has had the cheering word that she is great-grandmother to a son born to Ernest Olmstead and wife of Des Moines, Iowa, on Saturday, February 17th.
