PIERSON - Many Victor friends have been saddened this week, by the news of the death of Samuel D. PIERSON, of Geneva, which occurred on Tuesday, April 28th, at Vergennes, Vermont, where he had been staying for some time for the benefit of his health.  Mr. PIERSON had been in poor health for some time and had been away from Geneva, during the winter, a part of the time at Atlantic city, but his friends did not know that his condition was serious and the news of his death came as a shock.  Mr. PIERSON was a son of Rev. Job PIERSON, who was pastor of the Victor Presbyterian church from 1856 until 1863.  Although but a young man at that time, he conceived a deep attachment for Victor and always retained a deep interest in the town and in the church of which his father was pastor.  At different times he made financial contributions to the church.  He greatly enjoyed attending bazaars and other entertainments given under the auspices of the church and at these times his purse strings were never tied.  Mr. PIERSON was a man of genial manner, dignified in appearance and he made friends wherever he went.  He was a successful business man, had many Geneva interests, being at the time of his death, President of the J. W. Smith Dry Goods Company of that city, a director of the Geneva Cutlery Company, the Empire Coke Company and the First National Bank of Geneva.  Mr. PIERSON was one of the founders of the Geneva Savings Bank.  In early life he studied law, but practiced little and his early activities were in lumber camps in Michigan.  Mr. PIERSON'S mother, was Miss Rachel W. SMITH of Geneva, who was married to the Rev. Job PIERSON in 1849.  Two brothers survive: P. T. H. PIERSON of Bennington, Vermont and J.W.S. PIERSON of Mt. Clemens, Mich.  The only other near surviving relative is a niece, Miss Elizabeth T. SMITH of New York City.  Early homes of the family were at Bennington, Vt., and Troy, NY, and the body was taken to the latter city, where the funeral was held at 4:30 o'clock this afternoon, at Oakwood Cemetery, interment being made in the family lot. 

HITCHCOCK - The death of Mrs. Martha Scrambling HITCHCOCK, a former resident of this town, occurred suddenly on Tuesday of this week, April 28th, at her home 26 Austin street, Rochester.  The body was brought here, Thursday, and brief funeral services were held at 4 o'clock in the afternoon, at the village cemetery, where burial was made in the family lot.  The services were conducted by Rev. Lorren STILES.  Relatives and friends gathered at the grave.  Mrs. HITCHCOCK was well known in this vicinity, where she had spent many years of her life.  She was 75 years of age and was the daughter of Paul RICHARDSON, one of Victor's prominent old time residents.  In early womanhood, she was united in marriage to Lucian SCRAMBLING.  They lived in Victor for the greater part of their married life, going from here to Rochester, where the husband died about 20 years ago.  One son was born of this marriage, Fred SCRAMBLING, who died several years ago. Mrs. SCRAMBLING, some time after the death of her husband, married a Mr. FRY of Rochester, who lived only a short time. On (cut off) 

THOMPSON - (first part is cut off)  Eugene THOMPSON, died April 26, 1914, which occurred at the home of his son, George J. THOMPSON, in Rochester, Sunday morning.  Funeral services were held in Rochester, Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Edwin P. WOOD of St. Paul's Univeralist church officiating.  The funeral party came here in automobiles and interment was made in the Village cemetery.  There were many beautiful floral offerings.  Eugene I. THOMPSON was 55 years of age and was well know in this town, where most of his life was spent.  He was station agent for the New York Central at Fishers, in the western part of town, for several years, moving to Rochester a few years ago.  He is survived by his wife, who was formerly Miss Nellie L. COLLINS of this town; three daughters, Mrs. Hoyt WOOD of New Mexico, Mrs. Frank BOWERS of Forest Lawn, NY, Mrs. Clifton ANDERSON of Rochester, one son, George J. THOMPSON of Rochester and five grandchildren. Three sisters are living, Mrs. L. E. KIMBALL of Lowell, Mass; Mrs. E. F. GILGEN of Ovid and Mrs. Elizabeth HOULT of Willard; and one brother, Clarence THOMPSON of Rochester.

ALLEN - The death of Mrs. James ALLEN, who recently moved to the house on East Main street, owned by Fred M. LOCKE, occurred on Tuesday, April 28th at the Geneva hospital.  The woman had not been in the best of health for several weeks, but she had given little heed to her condition and even the members of her family did not realize that she was seriously ill.  A few days before her death, she consulted a physician, and the second physician was called in counsel.  An operation was considered immediately necessary, and on Monday the woman was taken in an ambulance to the Geneva Hospital.  Death came the following day, before the operation had been preformed or even the anesthetic administrated.  Mrs. ALLEN was 40 years of age.  The husband survives, together with Mrs. ALLEN's mother and sisters.  The death seems particularly sad, coming without warning, and before the family had been settled in their new home.  The body was brought here, Thursday morning and taken to the home, where the funeral was held in the afternoon.  Rev. Lorren STILES of the Methodist church officiated and the Misses Edith and Gertrude MORRIS, members of the Methodist choir, sang.  The bearers were C. R. ALDRICH, Edward T. MALONE, Florance MALONE and John A. OSBURN.  Burial was made in Boughton Hill Cemetery. 

HERENDEEN - The death of Richard Horace HERENDEEN, the little son of Mr. & Mrs. Richard HERENDEEN, who had been seriously ill for several weeks, with pneumonia and peritonitis, occurred Tuesday evening, at the Memorial hospital in Canandaigua, where he had been a patient for several days.  The lad was only seven years old, his birthday coming on the day following his death.  He was a very lovable little fellow, and his suffering and death have saddened many.  Besides his parents there survive five brothers and one sister.  The funeral services were held at the home at 2:30 o'clock this afternoon, with burial in the North Farmington cemetery(Friends Cemetery)

It was thought that an operation would bring about a decided improvement in her health, and she went to the hospital, early in October.  She rallied splendidly  from the effects of the operation, and there seemed every reason to believe that the hopes of family and friends were to be realized. A sudden change for the worse was followed by decided improvement, but this did not long continue, and for several days preceding her death it was known that she could not recover. Her husband and sister, Miss Mary Keating, were with her throughout her stay in the hospital and at the end.
Elizabeth Keating was born in Victor, in January, 1874, the daughter of John and Margaret Moore Keating. She became the wife of John J. Brady, September 14, 1904, and for five years thereafter they resided in Macedon, returning to this village in 1910.  Quiet and unassuming, Mrs. Brady found her greatest joy in the home life, to which she gave unsparingly of her thought and strength.   Her kindly, sympathetic nature and many graces of character won for her many warm friendships and the esteem of all with whom she came in contact. She was a devoted member of St. Patrick's church. 
Mrs. Brady is survived by her husband, her father, John Keating, a sister, Mary M. Keating, and two brothers, William F., and Fred B. Keating, all of Victor.  The remains were brought to the home on Maple Avenue, Monday afternoon, and funeral services were held in St. Patrick's church, Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, a solemn requiem mass being celebrated by Rev. J. J. Donnelly, pastor of the church, assisted by Rev. William Byrne of Rochester as deacon, Rev. James Tischer of Clyde as sub deacon, and Rev. P. A. Neville of East Bloomfield as master of ceremonies. Interment was made in St. Patrick's cemetery on High Street.

Delightful Family Gathering
 
On Monday, a most delightful family picnic was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. I. B. Estes in Farmington. Twenty eight guests were present, including Mr. and Mrs. H. J. VanDenbergh and family, of Victor, Mr. and Mrs. James Gelder and children, Robert, Lois and Grace, Mr. and Mrs. William Donovan and family, and a sister of Mrs. H. J. VanDenbergh, Mrs. Joseph Hicks, all of Rochester. Earl VanDenbergh of Rochester was unable to be present on account of illness. 
Deserving of mention is the fact that Mrs. Dow VanDenbergh of Victor, 80 years of age, who had looked forward with much pleasure to this family gathering, refused to be cheated of her anticipated treat even though the car for which she waited was held up near Rochester for repairs.  So, forgetting her four score years, and beaming with the happy smile her Victor friends know so well, Grandma VanDenbergh walked the entire six miles to the Estes home in Farmington, and enjoyed with the rest the family picnic.  A bountiful dinner was spread and thoroughly enjoyed by the merry party. Games were entered into by both the children and their
elders, and all pronounced it a day long to be remembered.
