6910 Woman Fatally Burned - Started Kitchen Fire with Kerosene Oil - House Destroyed

Ionia, Oct. 3, 1912 - Mrs. Dianthia MC MICHAEL, 76 years of age, who resided with her son George MORGAN, in this village, was so seriously burned shortly after noon yesterday, that her death followed four hours later. The aged woman, who was alone in the house at the time, started to light a fire in the kitchen stove. The wood did not ignite quickly and she resorted to the use of kerosene oil. The explosion that followed enveloped Mrs. MC MICHAEL in flames and set the room on fire. The house with all its contents was soon a mass of ruins, though the woman had made her escape and neighbors lent all the assistance that they could. Her death occurred at 4 o'clock. Besides her son, Mrs. MC MICHAEL leaves five grandchildren. The funeral will take place tomorrow.

Mrs. Mary McCauley of Groveland Has Suffered With Melancholia.
Groveland Station, Dec. 12. - Mrs. Mary McCauley, who resided with her husband, Henry McCauley, near this place, took her life last Friday morning by hanging herself from a limb of a tree in the vicinity of the home. Mrs. McCauley, who was 61 years of age and had been a well known resident of the town of Groveland for a number of years, had not been in good health during the past few weeks, and members of her immediate family noticed many things she did which appeared strange, but they did not suppose that she was suffering with anything more than a slight attack of melancholia, and they supposed that this would gradually disappear. When the family arose Friday morning she appeared to be in her usual health and performed her daily morning work in the same way that she always did. Her husband and son went to the barn to attend to their work, and when they returned they were informed by Miss Sarah McCauley, a daughter, that her mother had left the house a short time before. Fearing that something was wrong, the son went out of doors, and to his dismay saw the form of his mother hanging from the lower limb of a tree some 40 rods from the house. He hurried to her side but life was extinct. From all appearance she had climbed to the top of the fence, thrown the rope over the limb and then fastened it around her neck before she stepped from the top of the fence. Coroner Bowen of Mt. Morris was at once notified, and after learning all the facts of the case he issued a certificate of death and ordered the body removed to her home.

Besides her husband, Mrs. McCauley is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Lewis Johnson of Rochester, and Miss Sarah McCauley at home; two sons, Alex, of Groveland and Henry, who also resides at home; four sisters, Mrs. James Love of this town, Mrs. Eliza Johnston and Mrs. Susan Johnston, both of Nunda, and Mrs. Nancy Gibson of the state of Washington, and two brothers, John Gibson of Mt. Morris and Robert Gibson of Groveland. One sister and one daughter died a number of years ago.

Funeral services were held from her late home Tuesday afternoon, and the body, was buried in the South Sparta cemetery. Rev. William Sangree pastor of the local Presbyterian Church, of which the deceased was an attendant, officiated at the services.

6913 Woman, Who Cut Throat With Razor, Finally Dies. Canisteo, Dec. 23. --
Mrs. Grace A. Wallace, 30 years old, who slashed herself across the throat with a razor more than three weeks ago, died at four o'clock this morning at her home No. 5 Jackson street, this morning. Mrs. Wallace suffered a nervous breakdown some time ago and was a patient in the Saint James Mercy hospital at Hornell for a while. She appeared to have recovered physically but her mental condition remained impaired and one night, while her husband was sleeping, she arose and went into the kitchen where she committed the rash act before anyone was aware of what she was doing. Her husband was awakened by the noise she made as she fell and surgeons were immediately summoned. An examination declosed (sic) the fact that in slashing her throat she had severed the windpipe; also the esophagus and tongue. There was no hope for her from the first, but nevertheless she waged a brave, but losing fight. Besides her husband, Lee Wallace, she is survived by two sons, Donald and James Wallace at home, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Bettinger and three sisters and one brother, Mrs. Earl Vanderhoef, Mrs. Phillip Besse, Mrs. Clayton House and Lyle Bettinger, all of Canisteo. She was born in Canisteo and lived here and in West Union all her life. She was a member of the Baptist church, Iola Rebekah lodge and also the Philathea class of the Baptist Sunday school. The funeral will be held at the house Friday afternoon at two o'clock and the Rev. J. T. Jones, pastor of the Baptist church, will officiate. Burial in Woodlawn cemetery.

"Isaiah Cornell was born in 1801. He had a son named Captain M. Eugene Cornell, who was an unsung war hero of the American Civil War.

Fellow Toastmasters and honored guests....

Eugene Cornell was born on April 11, 1842 . He was not a famous person himself, but he had an uncle who was very famous. His name was Ezra, the brother of Isaiah. Ezra Cornell founded a major university in Ithaca, NY; on a hill overlooking Lake Cayucas. You have probably heard Cornell University's Alma Mater Song, "High Above Cayucas Waters."

After, Eugene Cornell grew up, he became an Officer in the Union Army. In 1862, after the outbreak of the American Civil War, Capt. Eugene Cornell served under General McClellan, who at that time, headed up the Union Forces in The Eastern Campaign, but was always at odds with Honest Abe Lincoln. It was during this time in 1862, that The Union Army was in desperate need of a victory in the East, as the Confederate Army under General Lee had a pretty good stronghold on the Eastern Campaign. As desperate as the Union was for a victory, the South was just as desperate to maintain their stronghold in the East, because in the Western Campaign, The Union Army under General Ulysses S. Grant was dominating the Confederate Army. And so, the two sides met head on at a place in Maryland called Antietam Creek, on Sept. 17, 1862.

The North and the South fought each other at very close range. The Battle of Antietam lasted one day, and I have to say, it was a massacre. The Battle of Antietam was the bloodiest battle of the entire Civil War, and the bloodiest one-day battle in the History of America. A total of 3,650 dead soldiers, Blue and Gray, littered the countryside surrounding Antietam Creek. At least 17,300 people were wounded at the Battle of Antietam. Although the losses were heavy on both sides, General McClellan and his Union Army had obtained their much needed victory at Antietam Creek. This prompted Abraham Lincoln to write his Emancipation Proclamation, which would free all of the slaves in America.

One of the soldiers who died at the Battle of Antietam was Captain Eugene Cornell. There were no confetti brass bands, no medals, just a man who willingly gave his life for his country, and for Abe Lincoln's Cause, which was to reunite a country which was torn apart by slavery and secession. That is my definition of an unsung hero. An unsung war hero is one who willingly lays down his life for his country, without expecting anything in return, whether he lives to tell about it or not. Capt. Cornell did not live to tell about it; but, he was indeed an unsung war hero.

Capt. Cornell had a nephew whose name was George Cornell. George was born in 1854, and was 8 years old, when his uncle died at The Battle of Antietam. When George grew up, he had a daughter named Myrtle Cornell who was born in 1892. Myrtle married a Navy Man by the name of Chief Warrant Officer, Leroy Edwin Baxter--Grampa Baxter to me. Myrtle Cornell, who became Myrtle Cornell Baxter, was my Grandma. Capt. Eugene Cornell was Grandma's Great Uncle and my Great Greet Great Uncle. Capt. Cornell and I are both part of "Uncle Ezra's Family Tree" which grows on top of a hill, "High Above Cayucas Waters." And so, I created this Civil War Website, and named it the Capt. M. Eugene Cornell Memorial Civil War Showcase. During this upcoming Fourth of July Holiday, Let us remember those "Unsung War Heroes" who gave their lives for the freedom which we share here in America."

Cornell, Captain Merwin Eugene (I28417)

    from when Elizabeth's grandchildren, the children of her daughter, Susanna Fullmer, did LDS temple work for their deceased ancestors,
    they included their grandmother, "Mary Elizabeth Shafer Zerfoss" and their great- grandfather, "Peter Shafer."]

    6947 ◦Information about Nancy's family is from the family file of Betty H. Reed dated Nov 2006 and posted at Betty cites a non-published book by Mabel Harvey Thornton as the source.

    Daughter of Absalom Jefferson and Nancy (Dodson) Hembree and according to the source cited above was born on the trip from TN or OR. Census records give her birthplace as MO. She married 2nd to S.J. Bogart. The 1900 census of Renton, King WA lists Samuel J. and Nancy M. Bogart. Samuel age 61, born May 1839 NJ, Nancy age 58, born May 1842 OH - parents from ENG and IRL. Samuel and Nancy married for nine years, so married about 1891. If that is this Nancy the age and birthplace information about her is incorrect. However it does list her as having been the mother of ten children, only three still living in 1900 - which does appear correct. In 1910 Nancy Bogart, widow, age 73 (born abt. 1837) MO, parents from TN, is listed at Tacoma, Pierce WA.
