Eight Men Seriously Injured at a Barn Raising

Honeoye, July 11 - The most serious accident in the history of Ontario county occurred in the town of Canadice to-day at 9:30 o'clock, on the farm owned by Hollis J. T. TYLER, of Naples. A gang of men were raising a barn to replace one blown down about a year ago. Much of the timber of the former building was used for staying in the new one. The workmen had raised one bent and were working on the staging laid across this fitting the next bent together. Without a moment's warning the timbers beneath them gave way, and they were hurled into the basement below, a distance of nearly twenty feet. In some unaccountable manner the whole number fell under the entire weight of plank and timbers. 

The list of injured is as follows: George MUCK, bruised about the head, supposed to be dead when first taken out, but subsequently recovered; James THOMAS, both legs broken, right leg twice below the knee, left leg once above the knee; Chester WASHBURN, 70 years of age, left leg broken and terribly smashed, the bone protruded from the flesh and was removed by the physicians and may necessitate amputation, right leg slightly bruised; Henry MAGERY, leg and ankle injured; Eugent ALGER, seriously hurt and ankle sprained; Levi LYON, leg bruised; John OAKLEY, slightly injured; William CLEVELAND, leg and head bruised. Drs. L. F. WILBUR, of Honeoye, and Coroner WETLING, of Naples, cared for the injured. The accident was caused by one of the old timbers giving way at the point where it was spliced by an old mortise.

Memorial Plaque Erected on Site of Old Church -  A plaque has been erected in memory of Morey B. ASHLEY, former president of the Richmond Center Cemetery Association.  Richmond Center, is the original location of the First Congregational Church built from 1817 - 1818.  Organized in 1802, the Society of Richmond purchased 10 acres of land from David CROOKS in 1804.  The land was used for a church, a cemetery, a parsonage and a school house.  

In January 1863, regular Sunday meetings at the Congregational Church of Richmond Center, ceased.  The Congregational Church of Honeoye and Society were organized in Nov. 1854 and the Honeoye Church was built in 1861. On the first Sunday in January 1863 a meeting was held of the two societies; The Richmond Center Church and Honeoye Church.  At this meeting it was decided to join the two churches, meetings moved to the Honeoye Church.  Stephen ASHLEY, grandson of Morey B. ASHLEY, is the current president of the Richmond Center Cemetery Association.  [Picture of Cemetery Sign  dated 1804 & picture of the Congregational Church in 1817.  No trace of this church remains.]
