Mrs.  Stanton  D.  Kirkham  -  Mary Clark Williams, wife of Stanton D. Kirkham, died at Milford, S. C., after an illness of several years on Monday morning.  The remains are expected to arrive in Canandaigua early Friday morning, and it is arranged that the funeral shall take place from the family home on Howell Street on the same day. The Rev. Livingston L. Taylor of the Congregational Church will conduct the service and the interment will be at Woodlawn. 
The young woman whose remains will be thus laid away on Good Friday was the daughter of the late Captain George N. and Mrs. Abigail Clark Williams, and the granddaughter of Governor Myron H. Clark. 
She was born in Canandaigua, November 3, 1869, and had always made the village her home, though absent from it for extended periods while traveling in this country or abroad, and more recently while seeking to avoid the rigors of the northern climate.  The memory of her gracious presence and her kindly deeds is cherished by many personal friends, and by the community in whose progress she was deeply interested, and for whose welfare she was ever solicitous. So long as her health permitted she was prominent in the social life of the village and took an active and most helpful part in
church and public affairs. 
She was until recently a member of the board of directors of the Memorial Hospital, officiated for a number of years as treasurer of the board of managers of the Clark Manor House, was a charter member and the first treasurer of the Ontario County Historical Society, and through other organizations and in other ways, spent unstintingly, time and strength and means in unselfish service. 
Miss Williams was united in marriage on May 16, 1907, to Mr. Stanton D. Kirkham, the author, who survives, as does also her little daughter, Mary Clark Kirkham. Besides these, she leaves one brother, the Hon. Clark Williams, of New York, three aunts, Mrs. Samuel D. Backus of Canandaigua, Mrs. Frederick F. Thompson, of New York, and Miss Charlotte E. Clark of Canandaigua, and an uncle, Lorenzo E. Clark, Esq., of Detroit, Mich.

 R.  R.  SCOTT  IN  OHIO       Conducting a Hot Campaign in Behalf of President Taft
Hon. Royal R. Scott of Canandaigua, is at Toledo, Ohio, where his political astuteness and personal management of the canvass of John N. Willys and Edward Libbey for election as Taft delegates from that district to the Republican National Convention. 
Mr. Willys, who spent his boyhood in Canandaigua and is now president of the great Willys-Overland Company at Toledo, has been prominently mentioned for the Republican nomination for Governor of Ohio, and is an ardent supporter of President Taft. In his maiden political speech, Thursday night, he declared that if it is to his interest as a manufacturer to reelect Mr. Taft, it is to the interest of laboring men to reelect him, and gave this bit of personal history: 
"I have been a laboring man all my life. I started in at the bottom and worked up. I worked once for 25 cents per day and that is
more than some of you have done. My father taught me to work and paid me the 25 cents. He then made me buy my clothes with the money.  " I want to go to the Chicago convention and help nominate Mr. Taft because my best interests are at stake, and your best interests are at stake." 
Canandaigua friends of Mr. Willys, who were fellow students with him in the Academy here, predict that he will make a success as a politician and spellbinder. If he has not lost the ability displayed in old time prize speaking contests, he is a fluent and forceful speaker and quite at ease before an audience. They expect to see him win hands down in next Tuesday's contest and later take a yet more prominent and influential part in Buckeye state politics. Mr. Scott, of  course, can be depended upon to be his loyal and efficient lieutenant.

On Friday she visited this section in an automobile, and she recalled many incidents of her younger days. She attended the band concert on Tuesday evening, and thoroughly enjoyed the music. The crowd in the city streets, as she remarked, was a revelation to her.  A profusion of flowers, post cards, and gifts from many friends made the birthday a memorable one.

ROBERT  D.  PATERSON -  Clerk of Canandaigua Town and a Prominent Newspaper Worker
 Robert Donald Patterson, clerk of the town of Canandaigua and widely known as a newspaper writer, died at his home on Chapin street in this city yesterday morning about 10:30 o'clock.
Mr. Paterson had been in failing health since last November, when he suffered a severe attack of pneumonia, but had bravely kept at
his work until rapidly failing strength made him, six weeks ago, a prisoner at home. Even then his brain and his hand kept busy and up to within a few days of the end he performed his official duties and did more or less writing.
Death was due to Bright's Disease, which finally prostrated him a week ago Friday and rendered his end a question only of a few days or hours.
Robert D. Paterson was a son of the late James D. Paterson, for twenty years a leading merchant in Canandaigua, and he was born here on August 31, 1873. He received his education in the Canandaigua union school, acted as a paper carrier for the Times for several months, and then became an apprentice at the printing trade in the Journal office, then under the management of Mr. G. D. A. Bridgeman.
After working at printing for a number of years, Mr. Paterson, in partnership with an older brother, Lester S. Paterson, since
deceased, became part owner of the Ovid Independent, and later assumed the sole control of that paper.
In 1898 he sold out his interests at Ovid and returned to Canandaigua to reenter the service of the Journal in a reportorial capacity, a connection which he afterward maintained, with the exception of about two years which were spent partly as a legislative clerk at
Albany and partly in newspaper work at Buffalo. Since the last mentioned city, he had been the associate editor of the Journal.
Mr. Paterson was a facile writer, and in addition to his work on the Journal acted as correspondent of several Rochester and Buffalo papers.
He was a public spirited citizen and had been identified with various movements for the benefit of the community and for the
protection and development of its higher interests. He received the unanimous nomination of the Republican caucus in 1911 for town clerk and was chosen for the office at the succeeding election by a large majority.
He was an active member of the Baptist church, a worker in the Canandaigua Health Association, and a member of the local I. O. O. F. lodge. He was an earnest Republican in politics and had served at various times on party committees and delegations.
Mr. Paterson is survived by his wife, Sophia May Fellows, to whom he was married on January 16, 1902, and by five children: Beatrice, aged 10 years, Donald, aged 8, Helen, aged 5, Ruth, aged 3, and James, aged 2. His aged and totally blind mother, Mrs. James D. Paterson, and a sister, Miss Grace Paterson, also survive. To all these whom he had loved so devotedly and to the community which he had served so faithfully, the loss sustained in his death is irreparable.
The funeral will take place from the home on Chapin street at 3 o'clock on Thursday, the Rev. G. R. Dye of the Baptist church,
officiating. The interment will be at Woodlawn.

Death of Well Known Newspaper Man - 
Robert D. Paterson of Canandaigua, died at his home in Chapin street, in that city on Tuesday, September 1st, aged forty years. Death was caused by Bright's disease and his condition had been critical for some time past.
Mr. Paterson was one of the best known newspaper men in this section. He started in the business as an apprentice in the office of
the Ontario County Journal, and worked his way up until he became associate editor and advertising manager of that paper.
For eighteen months he was telegraph editor of the Buffalo Evening News, and for several months he conducted the Ovid Independent. His news articles were noted for their terse, crisp style.
Desiring to return to Canandaigua Mr. Paterson resigned his position with the Buffalo Evening News. He afterward declined tempting offers from out of town papers and continued his work in Canandaigua.  At the time of his death he was associate editor of the Ontario County Journal and clerk of the town of Canandaigua.
Besides his wife, Mr. Paterson is survived by five children, his mother and a sister, all of Canandaigua. Members of the newspaper
fraternity mourn his death and extend their sympathy to the bereaved family.

About a year ago, Shepard Simonds, with his mother, Mrs. Nellie Simonds, made the trip from Florida to Victor with the remains of his brother, James. The father, Burton Simonds, who died some years ago, was a brother of George and C. L. Simonds of this village.
