Richland Courier ~  March 25, 1847 - Died at his residence in Sandy Creek, on Saturday
afternoon last, of a shot but severe illness, Thomas S. Meacham, Esq. the proprietor of
Agricultural Hall, in the 54th year of his age. Mr. Meacham was one of the first settlers of
this county, was a Farmer by profession, and has probably done more than any other man
in the County for the promotion of the science of Agriculture. His whole mind has always
been absorbed in this occupation, and the Dairying interest of the county owes its first
impetus to him. His Mammoth Cheese, presented to President Van Buren, will not soon
be forgotten, and although his body has passed from the earth, we hope that his many
traits of kindness, benevolence, perseverance and industry will not soon pass from the
minds of his contemporaries.

at the residence of his son, Dr. Newell Wright, Dennis Wright, in the 87th year of his age.
Mr. Wright was born in Northcastle, Westchester county, New York, where he resided
until the close of the Revolutionary War, the sufferings of which with the cruelties
inflicted by the British and Torres, in their predatory warfare he was obliged to share. His
fathers estate, said to have been considerable, was entirely wasted by burning, robberies
and the depreciation in value of Continental money, so that Dennis commenced business
with no other capital than industry, perseverance and economy, which with the assistance
of a most excellent and pious companion; and the blessing of Providence, enabled him to
gain a competence, and something to spare to the poor and less fortune of his fellow men,
and to liberally support the institutions of religion, the hopes of which were early
embraced by both himself and wife, and the peace and consolation of which were most
richly and abundantly bestowed in the decline of life, the day of sickness and the ultimate
hour of death.

age.

Richland Courier ~  June 23, 1847 - Died in New Orleans, on the 3rd of May last, Mr.
John P. Lane, oldest son of Gilbert Lane of this village, in the 35th year of his age. Mr.
Lane was an Odd Fellow, and altho’ in a land of strangers, far from kindred or
acquaintance, still his parents have the assurance that he had every attention which his
situation required, and a Christian burial. The fact needs no comment, but speaks for
itself.

Richland Courier ~  June 30, 1847 - Died in this village this morning at 9 o’clock of
scarlet fever, Frederick, youngest son of Arthur F. and Charlotte Mathewson, aged 3 years
and 6 months.

Richland Courier ~  June 30, 1847 - Died in Albion on Sunday the 27th, inst., after an
illness of only five days, Mrs. Eliza, wife of Winsor Whipple, Esq., in the 41st year of her
age. The death of Mrs. Whipple is deeply mourned by a large circle of acquaintances in
the town where she resided and her funeral was attended with a sorrowing train whom her
Christian virtues and amiable disposition had attached to her during her residence in that
section.

Theodora, youngest daughter of Dr. George O. and Elizabeth Gilbert, in the 12th year of

Isreal Jones, aged 72 years. Mr. Jones was the first who groped his way through the 12
mile wood, and settled in this town some 43 years ago. He was the oldest of nine
children, whose father lived to a sufficient age to see them all settled in the world, and
who with this exception are now living, and the long funeral train of connection that
followed him to the grave, shows conclusively that his descendants will not soon be
extinct.

Richland Courier ~  December 1, 1847 - Died in South Richland, Oswego Co., New
York, on the 16th day of November, inst., the Tesidence of Mr. J. N. Dewey, Capt.
Ebenezer Bement, in the 80th year of his age. Capt. B. was formerly from Stockbridge,
Mass., whence he removed to Ontario Co., in this State, where he resided for more than
25 years. For about the last 20 years he has resided in this town; and for more than half
this time, in the family of Mr. Dewey, who have bestowed upon him and his aged
companion who survives, every attention calculated to alleviate the infirmities of
enfeebled old age. He, however, enjoyed generally good health for a man of his years
until within a little more than two years since. It is due to his memory to say, that he was
an industrious and moral man and respected citizen. Some weeks previous to his death his
mind was exercised with a sense of his condition as a sinner in the sight of a holy God.
He expressed his sense of the justice of God in the condemnations of sinners; and in his
own condemnation. And his friends have reason to hope that work of grace was wrought
in his heart by the Holy Spirit, which prepared him, tho’ at the eleventh hour, for the
enjoyment of the heavenly rest. His funeral was attended at the residence of Mr. Dewey,
where the occasion was improved by a discourse founded on Luke 23: 42, “To day shalt
thou be with me in paradise.”

inst., Francis Wright, daughter of Ard H. and Fanny Stevens, aged 2 years and 8 months.

Richland Courier ~  December 29, 1847 - Died in this village on Tuesday morning last,
Mrs. Martha Gurley, aged 72 years. Mrs. Gurley has for some time had to combat the
inroads of that fell disease (consumption) but with resignation and fortitude has awaited
the stroke which although not unexpected still so sudden seems. She was not considered
dangerous until Saturday last and today we number her with the past. Her funeral will be
attended from the residence of her son, George Gurley, Esq., on Friday next at 1 o’clock.

of lung fever, after a painful illness of 10 days duration, leaving a wife and six children to
mourn his loss. Mr. T. was a man who deserved and commanded the respect of his fellow
men, and a life of uprightness and probity had won for him the high appellation of the
noblest work of God - an honest man. The widow has lost in him a kind husband; the
children a tender parent; the Sabbath school an excellent Superintendent; the Church an
ardent, devoted and liberal member; and the world a warmhearted philanthropist. He has
gone to that rest, which a living testimony for Christ warrants us in believing was
prepared for him. - (Com. to the Sheboygan [Wisconsin] Mercury.)

Richland Courier ~ November 8, 1848 - Died in this village on Saturday the 4th, inst.,
Dea. Benjamin Snow, aged 48 years. The deceased removed to this village in 1821, while
it was still in its infancy and by his enterprise and perseverance has added much to its
present prosperous condition. His uniform and exemplary conduct has endeared him to all
who knew him. He was at different periods of his life honored with various stations of
public trust conducted with the local transactions of our thriving village; he having to the
last enjoyed the most unbounded confidence of his fellow citizens. As a Christian, a
Citizen, a Parent, his whole life affords the strongest evidence of irreproachable
character; of a kind and generous disposition, his warm heart was at all times alive to the
necessities of his fellow beings, and his sympathies were ever expressed by tangible
relief. The gloom and sadness that pervades our community, is a living attestation of the
great appreciation placed upon his philanthropy and general usefulness. The more
immediate cause that led to this sudden and unexpected calamity was the accidental
falling of heavy machinery connected with a new mill which the deceased was engaged in
erecting. It occurred on the afternoon of Wednesday last. He was sensible from the first
that the injury he then received would terminate fatally; and with that calm composure of
mind for which he was eminently distinguished, resigned himself to his fate; and although
laboring under intense pain, he placed his whole trust in Him who never betrayed the
confidence of those who loved him. The strongest testimonials of regard and affection
were manifested during his last moments, by a large circle of anxious friends, from whose
hearts the recollections of his many virtues can never be eradicated. May the light of his
example be a living monitor to the surviving and be reduced to practical good.

and expired almost without a struggle. “Blessed are they that die in the Lord.” -
Communicated.

Richland Courier ~ March 14, 1849 - Fatal Accident - Delos G., second son of S. R. and
Sally Dickinson, aged 15 years, came to his death March 9th, suddenly, at Union Square,
from the effects of a blow received on the head. He was in the woods with his father and
brother, who were falling a tree, which in its downward course, caused a limb from the
top of an adjoining tree, to be hurled some 60 feet with unerring aim at its victim. His
father being very near, took him up apparently lifeless; and upon examination found his
skull to be badly broken. He was taken home immediately, where every effort was made,
of which medical skill was capable, to restore him to consciensousness, and save his life;
but all of no avail. He lingered only 16 hours, when his spirit left its frail tenement, and
took its flight, where neither the moans of his tender mother no the tears of a fond father
and affectionate brother, the only remaining child, nor the sympathies of a large circle of
mourning friends, could call him back. He was a very interesting and promising lad, and
had greatly endeared himself to his friends, by the amiability of his disposition, the
gentleness of his manners, his high moral character, and it has been said by those best
acquainted with him, that he had not an enemy in the world. May we all take warning by
this afflicting dispensation, to be in readiness, should we be summoned hastily away, as
was this our friend; and may that choice circle now broken and bleeding be joined in one
unbroken family above. Union Square, March 12, 1849, S. A. S.

industrious man and a good neighbor.

Richland Courier ~ May 16, 1849 - Died in Ellisburgh, Jefferson County, April 26th after
a short illness, Mr. Nathan French, in the 87th year of his age. Endowed with a strong,
clear, discriminating mind, and a benevolent heart; possessed of general good health and
a retentive memory; confirmed in the habits of virtue and invariably practicing the most
inflexible integrity; he commanded universal respect and esteem, in all the departments of
social life and came down to his grave in a full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in his
season. With undoubting faith he trusted in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men,
especially of those that believe. Delighting in the Law of God, and practically illustrating
the numerous virtues of the Christian life, he came to his death in peace, cherishing the
holy visions of that hope which is as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and
which entereth into that within the vail. Long will his memory be tenderly cherished by
an aged companion; a numerous and respectable family of children and descendants, by
many kindred and friends; by the church and society which be honored by his upright and
unexceptionable life; and by the community at large to which he was an ornament and a
blessing. His funeral was largely attended on the 28th at Mansville, and the consolations
of the gospel of devine peace, purity and love, administered to a numerous circle of
mourners and others from the words of the Saviour recorded in Mathew v. 4, and his
body conveyed to the silent “house appointed for all living,” and his spirit commended
“unto God who gave it.” May the devine blessing rest upon all who mourn.  P. M.
Henderson, May 7, 1849.

Richland Courier ~ May 23, 1849 - Olive Jones, wife of Pliny Jones, died in Pulaski,
Oswego Co., April 10th, in the 68th year of her age. Sister Jones was one of the first, if
not the first that embraced religion in this region, having been a member of the M. E.
Church about 40 years. Her house will long be remembered by the wandering itinerant as
one of those resting places where he may recruit his strength and prepare himself for
future toils and labors. Her death was sudden and unexpected, brought on by
inflammation of the bowels; but her uniform Christian department during a long life had
gained for her, through the blood of Christ, an eternal weight of glory. “Blessed are the
dead who die in the Lord.” W. H. Hawkins.

Richland Courier ~ September 15, 1847 - JOHN VAN EPPS -
     We have been constrained by the solicitation of a number of our patrons to publish an
expose of this notorious scoundrel who has for years prowled around the county, but for
some months has been cooped up in jail. We are opposed to talking or writing such a man
into notoriety and think the least said the better. If there are those so weak as to be gulled
by his bare faced villainy, they are too stuped to discern the truth, and the facts though
written in letters of fire have no effect. All publications referring to him will only have
the effect to strengthen his claims upon his dupes with the cry of persecution, and we
think it is not showing wisdom to take more notice of him than to apply the Laws of the
land to his case. If Van Epps is not belied by those who pretend to be acquainted with him
he is a half crazed villain as to scorn, and who is to gain honor by meddling with him?
     JOHN VAN EPPS AN IMPOSTER
     I hereby certify that I have no fellowship with John Van Epps, but entirely disapprove
of the course he is taking. By a thorough acquaintance with him, and I might say by sad
experience. I have become convinced that he is a wicked lying impostor - a deceiver, who
has considerable shrewdness and craft in beguiling honest inquirers after truth. He has
spent 16 years prowling about the county like a beast of prey, seeking whom he might
devour, and has had some success in his wicked work. I have been informed by a
gentleman from Yates county, where Van Epps has resided, that his present female
associate is not the first victim that has been seduced and ruined by him; also that he has
ruined a number as to property, who were before in comfortable circumstances. In all his
acts he says he is infallibly led by the spirit of Jesus Christ - It is a cause of rejoicing to all
the friends of Christ and humanity, that God in his providence has arrested him in his
wicked career. I would advise all virtuous people to keep clear of him, to shun him as
they would a poisonous serpent; and all who are in fellowship with him. He has
conducted himself in so scandalous a manner since he had been in Pulaski jail, that all
virtuous people are perfectly disgusted with him. I think it would be needless to caution
any against being deceived by him, if it were not for the help he had from a few poor
dupes who were once worthy members of society, but are now were appendages to Van
Epps and the devil, in carrying on their hellish imposition; and their apparent virtues are
only so many baits to decoy honest souls into the very gates of hell. It was through their
influences and testimony that Van Epps has been able to practice as much deception on
me as he had; but I am truly thankful that their power is broken; I now view them in their
true character. I know Van Epps is a selfish, covetous man, and that self indulgence and
gratification is his chief object. If I can be the means of keeping any from being ensnared
by him, or of opening the eyes of any who are under his influence, to see him as he is, I
shall be well paid for all it has cost me. Van Epps holds that it would be right for him to
perform many acts which if proven against him would put him in the State’s prison. I
have heard him argue that lying and perjury were right, if done from good motives. He
says the world’s system is all a lying system, and if Christians do not lie the world will
have the advantage of them. He quoted Rom. 3: 7 to prove it was right to lie to build up
Christ’s kingdom; (by which he meant his own bandit, whom he was teaching to lie, rob,
pass counterfeit money, etc.) I have heard him say he should have no scruples of
conscience in lying, under an oath administered in the world’s courts.
     I would here remark that Van Epps’s statement under oath, in court, in Pulaski, that he
was a preacher of the sect of Perfectionists, is false. He has never been in fellowship with
them; he has been turned out of their meeting, and no Perfectionist who knew him would
receive him into his house. He has never taken or supported their publications, and his
statement was a grievous slander, if his tongue can slander. He has no influence over any
people except six or seven in Amboy, some of whom it appears have become so
magnetized in Van Epps’s spirit that they have lost all sense of right and wrong, caring
only to approve what he says, and run at his nod. Some of them I think will abandon him
soon, and I sincerely hope for their sakes it will be the case. I might say much more
against Van Epps; but what I have said I think enough to keep him from doing any more
mischief. John Abbott - Pulaski, Oswego Co., N. Y. July 1847.
