    Notes:

    A man named Burton Ham, residing in Bristol, in this county, while riding on horseback one day last, was thrown from his horse. His foot caught in the stirrup, and his horse becoming frightened, ran, dragging him over the frozen ground for a distance of forty rods. Fortunately his coat was drawn backward, which protected his head and side and possibly saved his life. His foot was only extricated from its entanglement by being drawn out of the boot. Strange as it may seem, he escaped with only a few bruises -- so says the Ontario Times.

  2. East Bloomfield, N. Y. On Saturday night at his home, two miles north of this village, Burton Ham died, at the age of 84 years. Mr. Ham was born December 8, 1817, near the old stone mill, and had lived here all his life with the exception of some seven or eight years spent in the towns of West Bloomfield and Bristol. He was one of the most companionable of men and reminiscent of the days when Bloomfield was the metropolis of Western New York and Rochester was a small hamlet. A few years ago he possessed a large collection of native and foreign coins, some of them 3,000 years old, almanacs from 1600 to the present time, Indian relics, and old books, all of which he delighted to exhibit to his friends. He leaves a wife, three daughters, Mrs. Myron Codding, and Mrs. Delia Hawey of West Bloomfield, and Georgia Ham, of this place; one brother, Moses Ham, of Newark, N. Y.; and two sisters, Mrs. Ira Leete, of Marion, N. Y., and Mrs. Aaron Orcutt of West Bloomfield.
