Death of B. Franklin Knapp    -   Shortsville   July 9
 
The death of B. Franklin Knapp occurred very suddenly at his home in the town of Hopewell on Friday. During the afternoon Mr. Knapp had complained of feeling tired, and about three o'clock went to his room to rest, as was his custom. 
About five o'clock when his daughter called him, he did not respond, and on entering his room, she found him dead on his bed. During the winter Mr. Knapp had a severe attack of la grippe, which left him weak. 
The funeral was held from the homestead at 3 o'clock Monday afternoon, conducted by the Rev. Seymour C. Ferris, pastor of the Shortsville Presbyterian church, of which he had been a life long member, and burial was made in Brookside Cemetery, Shortsville. 
Mr. Knapp is survived by his wife and five children, Charles Knapp, of Hopewell, Judge Walter H. Knapp, of Canandaigua, Mrs. John Adams, of Buffalo, Mrs. Frank Heath, of Shortsville, and Mrs. Thomas Henry, of Brooklyn, by two sisters, Mrs. Fidelia Sutherland, of Canandaigua, and Miss Mercy Knapp, also by fifteen grandchildren, Chandler Knap, of Rochester, Robert, Frank and Edson Knapp, of Canandaigua, John, Frank, and Helen Adams, of Buffalo, Mrs. Bertha Adams Coxe, Mrs. William D. Hawes, of Phelps, Charles and Miss Mae Knapp, of Shortsville, Harriet and Truman Henry, of Brooklyn.
 
The Knapp family has always been a prominent one in this section, where its representatives were among the early settlers. Ezra and Phoebe Woolsey Knapp settled here in 1750, coming from Kinderhook, Schoharie County. They made the then long journey in wagons, driving their cattle and flocks before them, and took up fifty acres of land just southeast of this village. Afterwards members of the family purchased parts of what is now known as the Dan O'Brien, Sutphen, and Woodruff farms, and later what is now known as the Knapp farm, containing 150 acres, was purchased. 
B. F. Knapp was born on what is now known as the Dan O'Brien farm on August 16, 1829, and was one of a family of fifteen children, twelve of whom reached manhood and womanhood, and only two of whom now survive. In 1850 he was married to Miss Harriet Warner. His entire life has been passed within sight of his birthplace.

 

SHORTSVILLE ENTERPRISE     Saturday        July 13, 1906       Pg 2, col 4 & 5                 
 
The sudden death of Mr. B. F. Knapp, which occurred at his farm home in the town of Hopewell last Friday afternoon, startled the entire community, and takes from us another one of the old men who, having had to do with the activities of the past generation, linger awhile to enjoy the fruits of their life's work, and witness the many changes of these days in progress. 
Mr. Knapp has for many years been well known in the general and productive interests of our vicinity, a successful business man, masterful in his occupation, he brought to the markets of the world the finest of the wheat and all the best products of the soil.
 
There is much in Mr. Knapp's life that suggests thoughtfulness and gives inspiration to the living. Though verging closely to fourscore years, and somewhat enfeebled in bodily powers, he did not lose interest in life nor vigor of mind in his business, as in all his past years he was diligent to know the state of his flocks, and looked well to his herds, and all his work seemed crowned with gratifying results. 
A good farm, well appointed, a beautiful home, and a large family that must have made his home the center of genial interest, and the members of which are, by their ability and sterling qualities, well calculated to bring honor to his memory. There is much, too, in the thought of a finished life, a finished work. He died with his harness on, he lifted his hand for a moment of rest, and stretched it not forth again. His work was done, and though he is taken away the results and influence of his life will be lasting. 
There are not a few in this vicinity of about his age, as they think of Mr. Knapp and his sudden departure, will realize that this
ingathering is of vital interest to them. It is surely a good thing to prove, in a long life, the value of all the years from youth to hoary age, and to have fulfilled the promise that with long life will I satisfy him. But the longest life must end, and these last days may be the best. 
Mr. Knapp is survived by his wife, two sons, Charles, of Hopewell, and Judge Walter H. Knapp, of Canandaigua, three daughters, Mrs. John Adams, of Buffalo, Mrs. F. Heath, of this village, and Mrs. Thos. Henry of Brooklyn, two sisters, Mrs. Fidelia Sutherland of Canandaigua, and Miss Mercy Knapp, and a number of grandchildren and great grandchildren. 
The funeral was held from his late home on Tuesday afternoon, conducted by his pastor, Rev. S. C. Ferris, of the Shortsville
Presbyterian church. The interment was in Brookside Cemetery.

DEATH OF JOHN H. BENHAM 
For Nine Years Superintendent of The Poor
 
John H. Benham, a life long and prominent citizen of the town of Hopewell, and known and honored throughout Ontario County, died yesterday at his home just west of Hopewell Center, on the farm where he was born ninety one years ago, and on which he had always lived.  Mr. Benham was born on February 6, 1817, and was the son of Ebenezer Benham 2d, who came with his parents from New Jersey, first to Dutchess County, and then to Canandaigua, where he worked for a time for Abner Barlow, the pioneer, and helped him clear the farm on the east side of Main Street, through which Barlow St. or Gibson St. was laid out. 
Ebenezer Benham later settled in Hopewell, where at first stated his son, John H. Benham, was born and lived his entire life, and where he himself died in 1856.  John H. Benham was the last survivor of a family of two brothers and five sisters. His wife, Sophia Murray, to whom he wasb married in 1838, died nine years ago, and there now survive two sons, Murray and Ebenezer M. The latter resides on the old homestead, and has tenderly cared for his father in his declining years. 
John H. Benham was educated in the common schools and at the Canandaigua Academy, where he was a student under Principal Henry Howe, and a class mate of Elbridge G. Lapham, and other boys who later attained wide fame. He started out in politics as a Woolly Head, or Anti Slavery Whig, and assisted in the organization of the Republican party of which he remained an earnest and loyal supporter to the end. He delighted to recall the incidents that marked the early campaigns of this organization, and took much pride in his own modest part in them, such as the cutting and raising of a liberty pole at a meeting held in Hopewell Center in 1856, when James C. Smith and Elbridge C. Lapham spoke for Free Speech, Free Press, Free Men, Free Labor, and Freemont. 
Mr. Benham was early recognized as a leading and influential citizen of his town, and was successively elected to fill the offices of Justice of the Peace, Supervisor, Justice of Sessions, and finally, in 1871, Superintendent of the Poor. He held this position of public trust for three terms or until 1880.  Following his retirement from office, he devoted himself to farming, in which he was recognized throughout the county as most successful and as representing the most progressive school of agriculture. Until the weakness incident to advancing age precluded his active participation, he continued a prominent figure in agricultural and political gatherings, and exerted a large influence in shaping local affairs.  The funeral service will be held at the home on Thursday morning at 11 o'clock, with the Rev. H. L. Andrews, of Seneca Castle, officiating. The interment will be in the Chapman cemetery, in Hopewell.
