 FOUR TRAGIC DEATHS  - Much Respected Farmer of Victor Killed In  Accident
Lying beneath his wagon, his chest crushed in by the step of the heavy vehicle, Martin Gainey, one of the most respected farmers of the town, was found Friday evening, at the foot of what is known as Mariners' hill, two miles southwest of this village.  
Neighbors were summoned and with considerable difficulty, the wagon and its heavy load were lifted and the unfortunate man released. He was conscious and recognized his rescuers, but his release had been too long delayed, and he died within a few minutes, before a physician could reach him.
Mr. Gainey left his home about three miles southwest of this village with a load of tomatoes to go to the factory of the Victor
Preserving Co., at about six o'clock in the evening. The place where the accident occurred is less than a mile from the house, but it was an hour and one half later that he was discovered. The accident was caused by the breaking of the neck yoke ring, after which it is supposed that the wagon swerved to the side of the road and overturned, Mr., Gainey being thrown beneath it.
Martin Gainey was a man beloved by his neighbors and by his friends throughout the community for his kindly disposition, loyal and helpful spirit and unblemished integrity. The news of his tragic death saddened many hearts. He was sixty four years of age, and had been a resident of this town for many years.
He leaves his wife, one son Harry, of this town, five daughters, Misses Minnie and Margaret Gainey, of Rochester, and Elizabeth, Katherine and Nellie Gainey, of this town, and two sisters and two brothers, Miss Mary Gainey, of Phelps, Miss Ellen Gainey of Rochester, John Gainey, of Phelps, and another brother residing in Kentucky.  
The funeral was held on Monday from St. Patrick's church and was very largely attended. Interment was made in St. Patrick's cemetery on High Street.

The death of Mrs. John Keating, occurred suddenly, at about ten o'clock on Tuesday morning of this week, at the family home a few miles south of this village.  Mrs. Keating had been in poor health since last July, and at several times her condition was thought to be very critical, but she had been much improved for several weeks, until several days ago when she suffered an attack of pleurisy.  Mrs. Keating was gaining from this last sickness, and her condition was not thought to be all alarming. Thus her death was unexpected, heart failure being the immediate cause.

Patrick Ryan Falls from Loft in His Barn   Neck is Broken
Patrick Ryan, a well known farmer residing in the town of Farmington, met death in a strange and tragic manner, early last Saturday evening.   Mr. Ryan, in company with a cousin, Daniel McCrone, of Boston, Mass., returned to the home of the former after driving from Canandaigua. Upon reaching there, as Mr. McCrone was cold, Mr. Ryan suggested that they go at once to the house, which they did. 
Mr. Ryan inquired about supper and, as he found it would not be ready for a few minutes, said he would go to the barn and do the chores. After the meal was ready, the family waited for some time, and as Mr. Ryan did not return to the house, the daughter, Miss Ann Ryan went out to see what was keeping her father. The daughter went to the barn, and upon entering it, was horrified to see her father lying on the floor, apparently lifeless. Failure to find a pulse beat confirmed the fear that he was dead.  Help was summoned and Coroner Eiseline, of Shortsville notified. After an investigation, a certificate of accidental death was granted. 
It is supposed that Mr. Ryan was standing on the edge of the bay where the hay was kept, using a short handled fork, and that he lost his balance, and fell to the floor, a distance of hardly more than three feet. It is supposed that he fell head downward striking the floor with such violent force as to break his neck.   Mr. Ryan's death added another fatality to a number which have befallen this family, during the past five years. Six relatives have met death in a tragic manner, during this short length of time. 
Patrick Ryan was the son of Michael Ryan. He was seventy two years of age, and was born in Ireland. He came to this country when a young man and had resided here for nearly fifty years. For a time he traveled through the West, and also spent some time in Herkimer county before locating permanently in the town of Farmington. He was a genial man, and an honest citizen. His sudden death came as a shock to many acquaintances and friends. 
Besides his wife, Mrs. Mary Ryan, four daughters and one son survive, Anna, who resides at the homestead, Nellie and Sara Ryan, who are employed in Rochester, and Margaret, the wife of Edward Gouldrick, of Lima. Two sisters and one brother also survive, Mrs. Peter Mernaugh of Utica, Mrs. Bridget Carney, of Chapin, and John Ryan, of Mertensia.

marriage of Miss Kathryn Tobin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James Tobin, to Frederick Keating. Nuptial mass was celebrated by Rev. John J. Donnelly.
