ALLEN, Royce
HENRY CO ILLINOIS, FEB 19, 1880 OBITUARY:

"Royce Allen died at his residence in Munson, on Sunday morning, February 18, 1880.  He had been ailing for some months, failing gradually until at last quietly and peacefully his life passed away.  He was born in Camden, Oneida Co, NY in 1817; came to Peoria County, New York in 1843; was married to a daughter of Eli Wilson in 1846; and settled in Henry Co in 1852.  Since that time his house has been a sort of central landmark in the town of Munson - a home of unostenation, but generous hospitality.  Many, indeed, are they who have been welcomed by Mr & Mrs. Allen to their social board and family circle; and many were the acquaintanceships an friendships formed by our departed brother, during his twenty-seven years residence in our county. This high esteem and warm personal friendship was well represented by the gathering at the funeral ceremonies, under circumstances of unusual difficulty.  It was truly interesting to witness the grave and tender expression on the face of those who in the long procession took their last look on the sleeping form.
Royce Allen was a quiet, unassuming man, somewhat reticent, but of even and cheerful temperament.  He was a man of active intellect, quite interested in his early life in scientific and physiological subjects, both a reader and thinker.  More than this, his mind was ever open to the discovery of new truth and the highway of progress.  Human rights were sacred in his sight
and no sacrifice or labor were shunned by him in their defense.  He believe in equality and liberty as the common God-given heritage of all, without regard to birth, or sex, or color.  He was also progressive in his religious views and spiritual development.  Diligent and active in business, frank and generous in social life, faithful and true in the duties and responsibilities of a citizen, he was through all and above all an earnest seeker after spiritual knowledge and attainment.  Casting aside many old dogmas, her rejoiced in new views of life, death, and the future.    Broadly and cheerfully tolerant, he traversed all the walks of life, but held firmly to his bright and beautiful faith until his peaceful passage through the gate that leads to the summer land.  Many are the friends who will join in this tribute, and tenderly will they join in our expression of sympathy with the bereaved wife and children.  Doubtless they fell and mourn his loss, but rejoice in touching and tender memories of husband and father.  A plain man, but true and genuine, a man of character, his memory is a legacy to all who knew him.  Especially may his example be strong in moulding the life and character of young men.

ADAMS - Lee Center - The death of our townsman, Mr. Warren Adams, which occurred in Rome at the County House last Friday, was not unlooked by his neighbors and friends in Lee.

Undated clipping
Miss Clara Anken, one of the most successful and widely known business woman in Oneida County, died at her home in Western, one and one half mile from Westernville, at 11 o'clock on Monday night. Her illness was of short duration and her death is a shock to her many friends. Last Wednesday she was taken ill with measles and from the first was very sick. Complications soon set in and her failure was rapid. On Saturday evening she lost consciousness and from then on but little hope was had of her recovery. She never regained consciousness,
Miss Anken was born in Constableville, Lewis County, October 5, 1861. Her parents were Jacob Anken and Elizabeth Walti, both of whom died several years ago. When three years old her parents moved to Western and there spent the remainder of her life, which since reaching womanhood had been very busy and successful. Upon the death of her uncle, Samuel Anken, about seven years ago, Miss Anken became the owner and manager of one of the finest farms in the Town of Western. With that she later took management of another excellent farm, so that she had the care of between 500 and 600 acres of land, with the stock and everything that goes to make up two complete farming properties. She always employed the most competent help to carry out her work, but the actual planning and management of the farms, marketing of the produce and hundreds of her lesser details all came under her personal supervision. Her success was as marked as her life was busy. But few men in the county are more able agriculturists than Miss Anken was, nor do they take greater interest in everything that tends to promote better farming conditions than she did.
Aside from her busy business life, Miss Anken was a most agreeable woman to meet. Her manner was pleasing and gracious, her mind was well stored with many interesting things and she was a very pleasing conversationalist. Her acquaintance was large and many people today, both in Western and for miles around, are deeply grieved to know that Miss Anken will be among in life no more. She was well known in this city, her business calling her here every few days. She is survived by one sister, Mrs. David Andregg of Lee, and two nieces and nephews.

Atwood, Grace Mary
Utica Weekly
April 24, 1888
Stittville, Apr. 23 - This community mourns the early loss of one who from childhood, won all hearts by her bright, sunny disposition and winsome graces, Grace M., daughter of Willard T. and Addie R. Atwood. Adorable and kind to old and young, to rich and poor, she was a universal favorite, easy in her manner and ready in speech. She possessed in a remarkable degree that rare quality of making and keeping friends. Her qualities and abilities were well regulated and proportioned. She always appeared the same. Her teacher, Professor C. B. VanWie of Holland Patent, says of her 'In an acquaintances of more than three years in the school room I never knew Grace to manifest displeasures, neither do I remember of having ever been obliged to correct her for any fault. The workings of her mind were quick and penetrating. In her school work she was more than satisfactory. Altho obliged on account of ill health to be absent a great deal, she nevertheless kept pace with her classmates. She never appeared to realize the fact that she excelled in all she did, but on the contrary seemed to think that others should be preferred to herself. To forecast her future was a pleasing task so promising was the picture. The number of her associations will ever be an inspiration to both teachers and classmates'. Altho her illness was brief, she retained her faculties to the last, bade adieu to friends and loved ones, passed away from all she loved on earth, calmly, confidently, and gently as a child falls asleep at its mother's breast.
The funeral occurred from her late residence Sunday and was largely attended. Rev. Mr. Wilson, her former pastor, now of Nottingham, Pa, officiated, assisted by Rev. Mr. Grant of Holland Patent.

The deceased was the youngest child of the late Justus and Margaret Moulton and was born in the town of Floyd June 30, 1827. She was the last survivor of a family of 11 children. March 17, 1856, she was married to the late Sylvester B.

After that time Mr. Atwood worked at his trade as carpenter and builder and later they moved into their new home on Main street where they continued to reside until death. He died February 5, 1903. She was a woman of domestic qualities, who loved her home and found her pleasure in household duties, rather than in society. Besides a son, Willard T. Atwood of Stittville, there are surviving two nieces in Utica, Mrs. Ingham Townsend and Mrs. George Oscela, a niece, Mrs. Daniel Martin, Cleveland, O., and a niece, Mrs. Charlotte Conover, Stittville.

Atwood, Willard T.
Utica Herald
February 7, 1913
Willard T. Atwood, mill owner of Stittville, dropped dead in Wineburgh & Sons jewelry store in lower Genesee street at 9:30 o'clock this morning just after he had handed Hyman Wineburgh his daughter's watch to be repaired. Heart trouble, with which he has suffered attacks during the past three months, is believed to have caused his death.
Following his custom of years, Mr. Atwood went directly from the 9:15 Black River train to Wineburgh's store. This he has done each Friday when he came to this city to secure funds for his payroll. He had his own watch regulated and after receiving the check for his daughter's watch, he stood talking with Mr. Wineburgh. Suddenly he toppled over. Dr. J. Herman was hurriedly summoned from this office in Whitesboro street, but the physician could do nothing to save the man. Coroner Robert Dodd there upon was notified and he ordered the remains taken to Cassidy's undertaking establishment.
Mr. Atwood was born in Floyd Nov. 4, 1847, but he had lived in Stittville since he was 18 years of age. He was the son of Sylvester B. and Margaret Moulton Atwood and was one of four children. About 25 years ago he married Addie Raymer, by whom he had two children, Florence M. Atwood and Grace M. Atwood. His wife and one daughter, Florence, survive him. He started working first as station agent at Stittville for the Utica & Black River Railroad, when he was 16 years of age. This work he followed until 1868. In 1872 he engaged in the produce, coal and lumber business, which he had continued to the time of his death. In 1881 he associated with the late Charles W. Hackett, one time chairman of the Republican State Committee purchasing J. S. Maxwell's interest in a knitting mill which manufactured men's underwear, and which afterward was conducted under the firm name of Atwood and Hackett for 20 years. At one time he was connected with F. E. Gaus of the Bowne-Gaus Shoe Company of this city, in the contact of the Stittville Canning Company. This partnership was dissolved about seven years ago. Mr. Atwood then associated with W. R. Buell of Stittville and had conducted the Atwood & Buell Knitting Co. at Stittville for the past six years. Mr. Atwood sold his interest in the Hackett & Atwood mill at the time of Mr. Hackett's death.
Mr. Atwood has always been a Democrat but he never held a political office nor sought one. He was a member of Utica Lodge No. 47, F & AM, a member of Utica Commandery No. 8, Knight Templars, and a member of Ziyara Temple, order of the Mystic Shrine. He was also a Royal Arch Mason. He was prominent as a member and trustee of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Stittville.
Mr. Atwood was a moving figure in Stittville industry during his lifetime and when the news of his death reached the village today it caused great sorrow. He was known and admired by most of the business men of this city. He is reputed to have done much charitable work but he never said anything about it. He was a citizen such as form a community's foundation. There isn't anyone in Stittville who has not come in contact with Mr. Atwood and there isn't anyone in Stittville who holds anything but a liking for the man. His partner, W. R. Buell, arrived here on the noon train today and announced that Mr. Atwood's remains would soon be removed to the Atwood home in Stittville.
