HAWLEY -   In this village, April 25, 1882, John W. Hawley, aged 61 years and 10 months. As we came from the funeral of John Hawley, at Canandaigua, May 1st, we thought to ourselves. Well, such is life, we are and we are not, but life goes on the same.

John Hawley was a substantial business man, one whose judgment you could invariably depend upon, ambition was his life ruling power, he never thought of self as far as giving any rest from business, only to accomplish what he had planned, he had faults, perhaps, so we all have, we cannot see ourselves as others see us, he leaves a nice property to his family, accumulated by his own untiring perseverance and zeal, afflicted with poor health for about a year, he realized that he had made many mistakes through life, but he gave his pastor the blessed assurance that he realized God's forgiveness and that his grace was all sufficient for him.

Through all his suffering he was never heard to murmur or complain. Rev. Hiscox made some very appropriate remarks, saying it was not our own good works that saved us, but trusting in Jesus as our Savior. A large circle of relatives and friends with five physicians, Hawleys, were present. May the dear Lord bless the family so bereaved and help the relatives and friends, one and all, to show in their lives, there is a reality in the religion they profess.

                   He married Hannah E. Lincoln Gorham, New York, June 03, 1847.
