Wednesday morning of last week, Col. Cornelius VanDenbergh,
of this place, was driving in a one horse wagon up Pleasant Street, and
when near the railroad collided with another wagon in such a manner as to bring
both vehicles to a stand still. While in this position, Col. VanDenbergh
was observed by a gentleman standing near, to rise from his seat, apparently
with the design of getting out of his wagon, and then fall heavily to the
ground, striking upon the back of his head and shoulders.
was taken up and conveyed to his home where he lingered in great pain until
Thursday evening, when death came to his relief. It is surmised that his fall
may have been caused by a sudden attack of dizziness, as he had frequently
before experienced attacks of that kind.
VanDenbergh was about
68 years old, having been born in Cambridge, Washington County October
Came to this county 1836, and settled in the town of West Bloomfield,
near Miller's Corners until 1854, then moved to East Bloomfield. He lived in the
last place until 1868, when he became a resident of Canandaigua.
deceased leaves a wife and three children, 2 sons and one daughter. One of the
former is Phillip S. VanDenbergh, of this place, and the other is Mr.
A. F. VanDenbergh, of Rochester, The
daughter is wife of Frank Humphrey of Canandaigua.
Col. VanDenbergh was deservedly respected as an honest man and good citizen. He derived his military title from his commission as an officer in the state militia, and held the position of Justice of the Peace in W. Bloomfield for 14 years. In all the varied relations of life he sustained the character of an upright, honorable man, and his sudden and unexpected death is the occasion of profound grief to a large circle of warmly attached friends and relatives.

OBITUARY - The many friends of Mrs. Alfred VanGelder will be
pained to learn of her death, which took place in Philadelphia this morning,
where she had gone for the purpose of having a tumor removed. For several months
she had been an invalid, suffering pain from which death would have been a
welcome relief, but for leaving a devoted husband and children.
She was a devoted Christian woman and a shining example of the realities of religion. She had a warm and loving heart, was motherly and kind, devoted and loving to all. She held a place in the hearts of all her acquaintances who mourn her as a lost friend, but one whose example will make life's journey easier and it's disappointments more endurable, for amid her suffering she never lost hope or courage, but perfectly trusted in Jesus.
