Tri County Clippings- Troy Gazette Register 1901 - Yesterday's News

Typed by Pat MOTT Gobea
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 available.
The 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.

(Local News) A daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Tripp at Canton, Dec. 18th.

Seventy-Ninth Birthday.

The seventy-nine years of Mrs. Cynthia Rose Crediford was most beautiful rounded out by a large gathering of over seventy persons at the pleasant home of her son Emerson, in Springfield, December 20th.

The early ancestors of this worthy and highly esteemed mother were connected with the best interests of the young nation. Her great grandfather was the Hon. Stephen Bullock, a native of Rehoboth, Mass., He held many offices of trust in the State. He was captain of a company in a Rhode Island regiment, was a member of the convention that framed the Constitution of his native State, was a member of the last Congress that met in Philadelphia. He died in 1861. Asa Bullock, Sr., was also born in Rehboth, and removed to Columbia township in 1817. He held office of justice of the peace many years in his native town, was a fifth owner in the Palmer’s River Cotton factory, but it was burned. He then removed to Pennsylvania. He died in 1831, survived by six sons and two daughters. Asa Bullock, Jr., removed with his father’s family to Columbia, Pa., while a young man and for several years engaged in teaching school. He married Olive Soper who taught school several years. Her daughter Cynthia Rose Crediford was the first born of nine children, eight of whom grew to mature years. But of this large family only tow survive: her self, (Cynthia Rose Crediford) and Mary Melinda Bullock. We feel to thank the Heavenly Father who has spared this beloved mother and friends to fill out this good measure of days, loving and beloved by all who knew her. Her five children were all present, one son, Emerson, four daughters; Mrs. Byron Guthrie, Mrs. Pearsall Wolcott, Mrs. Rosalie Harkness and Miss Alice Crediford.

There are ten living grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Of the mother’s family on the Soper side there is still living: Mrs. Rebecca Rose Packard of Covington, Pa., at the remarkable age of 105 years, who, if she liveds past 1901, will have passed over the lines of three centuries.

Relatives of the family were present: Mrs. Helen Bullock and grandson Ellery Beach from East Smithfield, Mr. and Mrs. Mahlon Gore from Sheshequin, Miss Emma Shaw from Elmira, Mr. and Mrs. Asa Cornell, Mr. and Mrs. Linus Smith from Altus, Mr. and Mrs. Charles Shaw from Austinville, Mr. and Mrs. Ira Parsons, Mrs. Hattie Young, Mrs. Olivia Young of Troy, Miss Melinda Bullock the only remaining sister, of Mardin, Pa., a large circle of friends and relatives from Springfield, Mr. and Mrs. Stephen Brace, Mr. and Mrs. McKean Brace, Horatio Gates, Mr. and Mrs. Emerson Bullock, Mr. and Mrs. Seville Huggins, Wallace Mattocks, Mr. and Mrs. Perry and Sam’l Harkness, Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Harkness, Walton Gates, Mrs. Rachael Gates, John Patterson, Mrs. Mary Brace, Mrs. Martha Bullock.

Letters of congratulation from many friends living at a distance, from Scranton, Turner Centre, Me., Saratoga Springs, was marked by a most beautiful and affectionate letter from her old pastor, Rev. Emma E. Bailey.

The pleasant and commodious home of her warm-hearted son and most agreeable wife, resounded with prayers and benedictions, songs, a recitation by a great grandson, Jesse Guthrie, an original poem by Mrs. Ira Parsons, then the children all united in a song "When Grandmama is Gone," a beautiful solo by the granddaughter, Helen Clark, a song by aged Martha Bullock, who is past 85 years; Mark Guthrie, assisted by Lewis Smith and the granddaughter rendered some fine instrumental music. The warm hearted Baptist pastor and his good wife, Rev. and Mrs. Reynolds, added much by their genial presence. Her own pastor of the Universalist church, Rev. Amanda Deyo, delivered a brief address. Mr. and Mrs. J. Ritner Guild and other members of the Universalist church were present. Mr. Guild rehearsed many pleasing and beautiful incidents along with Asa Cornell, recounting the great inventions that now bless us. The statement was given, this old century opened without a mile of railway, without a steamboat, or steam car, no, not even a match, when Asa Cornell interrupted that that must be a mistake for he found in the early days of the century in his good wife Betsy a capital good match.

The hot chicken pie dinner and the long and attractive menu of good things added to the rich spiritual feast, made it a most memorable occassion for all the friends and especially for this beloved mother, who was remembered out of the fullness of the hearts of the friends by a goodly list of presents, both in money and useful articles.
