ONTARIO COUNTY TIMES January
- In East Bloomfield, NY, December 24, 1879, after a
few days illness, Benjamin Gauss Esq., aged 85 years. Mr. Gauss was born in the Genesee country, in the town in which he
died, long before the town had been named, and when only about a dozen souls
made up the whole population of the now populous and wealthy town of East
His father was of Puritan descent, and one of the first settlers in the town. He came at a time which tried men's souls when a pioneer life was but daily a repetition of toils and hardships, and the crude log hut served as the birthplace of the noble son, who for eighty five years has so nobly acted his part in the great drama of life. At all times loyal to his country's calls, with a large heart and a liberal hand to assuage the necessities of the needy, and with the fraternal care and Christian zeal in the raising of his children, this good man of two centuries has passed away.
Some few years since, he, with his wife and only daughter, removed to Rockford, Illinois, spending a time in that beautiful city, making by his kindness and urbanity of manners, a host of friends, with whom he felt so grieved to part. While in Rockford his estimable wife, to whom he was so tenderly devoted, bade adieu to earth, but in his loneliness, he sought another refuge, a city not made with hands, eternal in the Heavens. A few years since he returned to his old home to die, and sleep with his fathers.
He leaves two sons and a daughter to mourn his loss, while the whole community rise up with one accord and call him blessed. Dead, but his deeds shall ever live in our hearts until we, like him, shall see face to9 face in that Sweet by and by.
