TRUMBULL
MATHER
     The Sentinel contains the following account of the fatal accident, which occurred on the Road between Richmond and Oswego, on Friday evening of last week.  (December 6, 1867) A special freight train was being run from Richland to Oswego, starting about 9 o'clock P.M.  When the train had reached a point about three miles west of Pulaski, it ran upon a large tree, which had been blown upon the track, and the engineer, JESSIE TRUMBULL, of Oswego, and the fireman JOHN MATHER of Oswego were both killed.  John Trainor, conductor of the train, left the engine a few moments before, and barely escaped with his life.  Trainor and a brakeman were in one of the freight cars when the accident occured, and received no injuries.
     Mr. Trumbull, the unfortunate engineer, was greatly liked by the railroad officials.  He is said to have been a competent employe, whom all respected.  He leaves a wife and one child.  John Mather, the deceased fireman, was a reliable and trustworthy hand.  He leaves a wife and three small children.  The engine that drew the train was known as Delos De Wolf, was badly damaged.  The tender, and the wood it contained, caught fire and were burned.  The Oswego & Rome Railroad is perhaps as carefully managed as any road in the country; but such providential accidents as the above can not be averted.  (RCDec13/1867)

SAVERY - In Western, New York, November 30, 1867, of congestion of the brain, ALICE H. M. SAVERY, daughter of H. A. and M. C. Savery, aged 18 years, 8 months and 23 days.  (RCDec13/1867)

GRAVES - The funeral of R. B. GRAVES, one of the victims of the late fearful railroad disaster near Angola, took place at the residence of  S. W. Mudge in Rome, New York, on Sunday last. (December 22, 1867)  Mr. Graves was a son-in-law of R. S. Doty, Esq., of Rome, and had just permanently settled himself in business in Jackson, Michigan, and was on his way to New York for his wife who was visiting her father, when the frightful accident occurred.  (RCDec27/1867)

COLE - A young man named COLE, a son of Mr. L. Cole, keeper of the Rome cemetery, died very suddenly on Tuesday evening last.  He was taken violently ill, we learn, about the middle of the afternoon, and although medical aid was promptly procured, he rapidly grew worse and died before midnight.  We have heard several causes assigned for this sudden death, none of which seem to be correct.  The probably cause was a sudden and violent congestion.  The deceased was some 18 or 19 years of age.  (RCDec27/1867)

WRIGHT - Another of our oldest citizens has been suddenly removed from our midst by death.  Mr. WILLIAM B. WRIGHT died on Christmas evening after a brief illness of only a few hours.  He was about as usual on the day of his death.  While doing the chores at night he complained of an unusual pain in his side, and continued to grow worse until 11 o'clock when death relieved him from his suffering.  Mr. Wright was 70 years old, and one of the most respected residents of the town.  The funeral will be attended at his late residence in Wright's Settlement, Saturday, (December 28, 1867) at 4 o'clock.  (RCDec27/1867)
