6857 Was of German nobility. His wife Katherine lived on the Waltman estate, but was not of nobility. They married in Holland, so there marriage was not recognized in Germany as legal. They came to America in 1737, and had a large family, but Katherine had to take over almost all of the work, as work was "beneath" Conrad. He considered the
residents peasents. He entertained himself by gambling but he usally lost everything he had. He was the only heir in the family and his parents kept begging him to return home, but he wouldn't leave Katherine. They sent him money, which he gambled away. Eventually the family estate in Germany went to the 'Crown.' Conrad's favorite son, Nicholas, was killed in the American Revolution
and this unsettled his mind to such an extent that he never recovered, for many years he was incurably insane. Katherine took care of him as long as she lived, then the youngest son did. All eight of his sons served in the American Revolution.

    6883 We are pained to announce the death of Miss Ella Harris which occurred yesterday about 11 o'clock. Miss Harris and her mother came here about a year ago and they have been living with her uncle, James Harris of Wright Dist. Miss Harris was poorly when she came back and, but a few people had hopes of her full recovery from the fact that that terrible disease, consumption had marked her as one of its victims. Miss Harris leaves a mother and one brother to mourn her loss, and we are glad be may that the friends have this to console them that she had a hope that was both sure and steadfast of a full and free entrance upon a life eternal in the world to come. The funeral services will be held at the house here and the internment at Prattsburg where her father is buried.

    6884 We are pained to announce the sudden death of Kendrick Daniels, a well-known resident of Bath. His family had been sick for a considerable time —his daughter died. The loss of his child, and the severe tax upon his constitution, in the loss of sleep, so affected his nervous system that he died on Wednesday of last week. But a few days before his death, he procured a policy of life assurance to the amount of $2,000.

    6885 WE have no record of the time when Thomas Wilder first settled in
    Charlestown, or of his business relations. He was there, a citizen in
    1640, and remained until 1659. We do not know that he held any public
    office. That he was a substantial, capable man, respected in the
    community, an active member of the church, a thorough Puritan, jealous
    of the rights of the brotherhood, and willing to resist the
    encroachments of the ministry, as he estimated them, there are
    indications in the old records.
    In 1652 a settlement was made on the Nashawena River, about forty
    miles westerly from Charlestown, by purchasing from the Indians a
    tract of land, eight miles by ten, which in 1653 was confirmed by the
    General Court, which the legislative power of the colony was then
    called. After sending a committee to inquire respecting the character
    of the settlers and the suitableness of the land for a settlement, and
    receiving a favorable report, the purchase was confirmed and they were
    incorporated as a town. There were then but nine families, but they
    were soon increased to thirty. A church was gathered and a minister
    It was on the first day of July, 1654, that Thomas Wilder arrived with
    his family, and took up his abode with them. His farm, of five hundred
    acres, was situated near to, and easterly from the center of the
    present town of Lancaster, as indicated by the "Burial Ground" given
    to the town by his son Thomas, and in which the father's remains were
    the first deposited.
    In 1660, Thomas Wilder was elected one of the selectmen, an office
    which, it is said, he held until his death, in 1667.

    6895 WELLSVILLE - Thomas Edward Allen, 72, of Wellsville, died Tuesday (March 29, 2022) at Jones Memorial Hospital, as a result of injuries suffered in a tragic fire at his Pine Street home. He was born March 10, 1950, in Cuba, the son of the late James H. "Red" and Marie (McMahon) Allen. On July 2, 1971, he was married to his wife of 50 years, Kay Lehman, who survives. Tom was considered a part of the Friendship Central School, Class of 1968, but officially received his diploma in Wisconsin. As a young man in Friendship and Appleton, Wis., Tom had an interest in agriculture and farming and was active with the FFA. His love of photography parlayed into a business in the 1970s, 80s and 90s, shooting church directories and weddings. He had a wide range of interests and will be remembered for his deep knowledge about almost any subject and his ability to recall details, facts and figures. He was an avid reader all his life, and loved reading history, travel memoirs and studying maps. A naturally curious person, he was fascinated by geography, glaciation and watersheds. Among his favorite writers were Hunter S. Thompson and Jack Kerouac. Tom loved driving and had an impressive sense of direction without relying on GPS navigation. "It seemed like he knew every back road to get anyplace," said his daughter. He would take anyone to an airport at the drop of a hat - even as far as Philadelphia or New York City. He made several cross-country trips by various means of transportation, including train, bus and automobile. He made several trips to St. Thomas in the Virgin Islands and several to Alaska to visit his daughter, bringing her several automobiles via the Alaska Marine Highway, the ferry system stretching from Bellingham, Wash. to the Aleutian Islands. Tom was always ready to lend assistance to a stranded motorist, stopping to give assistance or provide a ride if needed. When Zachary was young, Tom was involved in Boy Scout Troop 733 in Wellsville, and they spent cherished summers together at Camp Gorton on Waneta Lake, and Camp Barton on Cayuga Lake.
    He had an eclectic taste in music, and took his children to many concerts, including a trip to Asheville, N.C. for the farewell tour of George Clinton. His employment history was far-ranging. He was always proud of having worked at the Friendship Foundry and Jones Chemical before they closed, and at Blumenthal's photo shop in Olean. In more recent years, as his girth expanded and white beard grew longer, he worked professionally as Santa Claus, sitting for family portraits and sometimes posing with pets. He was flown first class to Anchorage, Alaska one Christmas season when there was a shortage of Santas up north. Some of his favorite stories involved children mistaking him for Santa at any time of year. He was once "sentenced" to appear as Santa at a Police Benevolent Association party as a result of a speeding ticket he received enroute to Buffalo. Last summer, Tom and his daughter enjoyed working together at her food trailer, Bub's Grub. Tom's favorite job was being grandfather to Eliza, who lovingly called him "Binka." They loved cooking together, singing and watching old westerns on TV. Survivors include his wife Kay; a daughter, Betsy; a beloved granddaughter, Eliza; four siblings, Annie (David) Cummins and Raymond Allen, both of Statesville, N.C., Timothy Allen of Belfast and Mary Suzanne (Ron) Trail of Canisteo; along with a number of nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a son, Zachary Thomas Allen, as a result of an industrial accident in Cuba, in Aug. 1998; and three sisters, Janine Preston, and Pamela and Catherine Allen. The family is planning a celebration of life at a later date. Meantime, the family asks that in Tom's memory, "pay it forward with a good deed for someone else - no matter how small!"
