The Naples Record                Sunday                             July 17, 1875           by Dianne Thomas  

CANADICE - Mrs. Alice Hartson Hicks, wife of Mr. Jno. M. Hicks, died at the residence of her father Mr. Asa Hartson, of consumption, aged 22 years. Her illness has been protracted, and anxious friends have tenderly cared for her, vainly hoping to arrest that flattering disease, but despite their tender care, and the aid of medical skill, they saw their loved one fade as the gentle flowers and droop and die. Not alone do those who were near and dear to her lament her untimely departure, but others, for Alice was one of our most lovely and highly esteemed young ladies, and had won many friends by her gentleness and social affection, who now "weep with those who weep." 

But three months since she became the wife of Mr. Hicks; then apparently, returning health, and the hope of much of happiness in future store, made her a joyous and happy bride.

The funeral services were conducted from the M.E. Church by the Rev. S. M. Day of Honeoye, in the presence of a very large congregation, and her remains deposited in the Canadice Hollow cemetery.

CANADICE - Samuel R. Hickok Esq. an old and respected resident of our town, died online 29th ult. at about sixty years of age. Mrs. Hickok was one of the prominent citizens of our town and very much respected; his loss will be felt by the whole community. 

He held the office of justice of the peace at the time of his death to which he had been three times successively elected. He leaves a widow and a large family of children most of whom are grown up.   They have the sympathy of the whole community. The funeral services were held at his late residence on the 1st inst. the Rev. Wm. Hunter officiating. The remains were interred in the Canadice Hollow cemetery.

On the 4th inst., the oldest daughter of the widow O'Lahey died of consumption, aged about twenty. It is but a few years since her father,  John O'Lahey, died of the same disease, leaving a large family in reduced circumstances and this is the second daughter the widow has buried since his death.  She will greatly miss their help in rearing the smaller children. The funeral services were held at Honeoye and the remains taken to Canandaigua for interment.

Mr. Orsemus Wemett and Miss Emersetta Wemmett of Canadice, were united in matrimony at the Parsonage last Sunday, by the Rev, S.M. Dayton.

Mrs. Emily Mann died very suddenly at her home in East Springwater last Sunday morning.  She leaves a husband and their children to mourn the loss of one of the best of wives and mothers. Her funeral services were held at the store house near her home, and were largely attended. Sermon by S. M. Dayton of this place.

About Home Briefs: 

We regret that the Wayland Press "shut shop" this week. Neighbor Morehouse is not to be blamed, for no country printing office is earning its salt these times. He probably "could a tale unfold" that would benefit us all.  Home papers should receive the support and entire influence of its locality! Too many think taking it and not paying, is support! Too many with more money than brains, think a city paper at one dollar much cheaper!

Sensible people know that a newspaper in their town greatly increases the value of their property as well as gives a standing to its name and morals.




We learn that Wheeler Happaugh of Canadice Hollow is very sick with remittent fever; we have not heard from him in some days.


On the 26th, a party of the friends of M. D. Ross, met at his residence on the occasion of his 68th birthday and had a good time.


On the 30th, Sarah Thayer, wife of George Thayer, attempted suicide by taking laudanum; George was awfully frightened and called on the neighbors who did all they could, in spite of her resistance. The dose not being sufficient to cause death; she is slowly recovering.

There has been much excitement here during the past month, in regard to the sudden death of the late Augustus McCartey, photographer of this village, which occurred on Thursday morning, July 11th. We give the facts in a brief, form as follows: 

On Wednesday afternoon, July 10th, be, not feeling as well as usual, he went to Dr. Stebbins, his family physician, to purchase some medicine; he said he was troubled with chills and fever. The Dr. told him that he had  better go to some drug store and get about 40 grains of quinine, to be done up in four-grain doses. 

He went to Maynard & Laning's drug store, corner of Linden and Seneca streets, and asked for the said drug, Mr. Maynard waiting upon him. Mr. M. took down the quinine bottle, and found that there were not 40 grains in it; there being about 30 grains in the bottle; he called for another bottle, when he (Mr. Mc Cartey) said that would do, and when he had taken all of it, he would come and get more.

Mr. Maynard took out of the bottle 28 grains, and did up two powders of four grains each as sample powders, the rest (20 grains) did up by itself. Mr. McCarthy went home and took one of the powders, at half past one o'clock and laid on the couch and went to sleep. 

When he woke up he said he felt much better, and asked his wife if it was time for him to take another power. He took the second power at precisely half-past five o'clock; it was not long before he complained of feeling drowsy, and said he would have to take another nap. He took the third powder a little after eight, and died about twenty-two minutes past twelve o'clock. 

An inquest was held by Coroner Covert, and the stomach taken out and analyzed by Prof. Towler, and found to be "sulphate of morphine" in the stomach; the quinine bottle from which the powder was taken, was also analyzed and found to be quinine. Now the great question is, where did he get it.

There were quite a number of witnesses sworn, and all tell a different story.  The jury brought in their verdict which was that "he died of morphine in the stomach." The public are very much excited about the matter. Mr. Mc Cartey, it is said, was never in the habit of taking morphine, but took quinine quite frequently when not feeling well.

The people know just as much about it now as they did before the coroner's inquest.  The whole thing is a mystery, and it may be solved some day. Mr. M. has for many years lived here; he came from Waterloo about 20 years ago; he was respected by all who knew him, and led a quiet and happy life, never going into society but very little. 

His funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Dr. Hogarth of the North Presbyterian church, and was largely attended.      July 31st, 1878.

Church on the 8th inst., by the pastor Rev. A. H.

On Thursday afternoon as Harvey Brown was returning borne from the Corners on foot, he fell dead in the road near the line between his farm and that of Albert Wicks and was found a few minutes later by J. S. VanDoren and C. B. Hyde, who immediately carried him to his home. The death of Mr. Brown thus suddenly was a great shock to his family and especially Mrs. Brown, who has very poor health. 

Mr. Brown was a quiet, honest man, and a good neighbor. He was born in Herkimer Co., in 1899, being 79 years old, and having lived in this town more than 60 years. The funeral was held at the Church on Sunday, the remains being interred in the Canadice Hollow Cemetery.

The funeral of Carlin McCrossen was held from his late home, 420 Columbia avenue, Rochester, at 2  o'clock on the 27th ult., and a more public one at Mt. Hope chapel an hour later, the Rev. Franklin J. Kennedy, of the Corn Hill Methodist church, officiating. 

There were many beautiful floral pieces, including a pillow given by the Rochester electric railroad employees, Division No. 22; a large piece from the Woodmen of the World; one from the board of health, of which he had been a member; one from the Odd Fellows; one from his children, and others from friends. The Odd Fellows had charge of the services.

If Carlin's spirit could have hovered over that scene and witnessed those lovely flowers, the tears and sadness of that large assemblage of men, he would have realized, as he probably never realized in life, how much he was loved and mourned. 

The remains were placed in a vault. In the spring he will be buried in the Canadice Hollow cemetery,  where so many of his, relatives and schoolmates have found their resting place. ***   Hemlock, Feb. 3.

Last Saturday, a much needed work was started on the Canadice Hollow cemetery, which has been neglected for some time. The people, who either have friends or relatives buried there are donating money or labor. They plan to have it graded and to hire a caretaker. Mrs. Byron Jerome, graciously opened her home where dinner was served to the workmen.  The town has set aside $59 for the cemetery to promote the work.  A meeting was held and Harry Coykendall of Rochester was elected secretary and treasurer.  Work will be resumed Wednesday and any contribution, either labor or money, will be greatly appreciated.
