The Late Abram Lane: Probably the Oldest Person in the Town of Westmoreland.
Lowell, Dec. 28--Abram Lane, who died on Wednesday night at eleven o'clock at his home two miles east of Lowell, was born at Stone Arabia, Montgomery County, Dec. 24, 1811. Bound out at the age of three until twenty-one, he saw many hardships, as his home was with one where liquor was as free as water. Mr. Lane was strictly a temperance man and never was seen under the influence of liquor. He always was cheerful, with a pleasant word for everybody. January 6, 1835, he married Sarah Stevenson at Saratoga, she being a daughter of a revolutionary soldier. Mrs. Lane preceded her husband to the better land about fifteen years ago. Mr. Lane moved from Port Jackson in 1850 by canal boat and settled at Hatch's Corners. He lived a number of years on the farm where Harry Noble now lives and from there he moved to Jordan, staying there two years. He sold his home there and came back to Rome, locating where James Bailey now lives and moving from there to Lowell in 1871. He leaves four children, Miss Anna Lane, Mrs. J.W. Robson and Peter Lane of Lowell and Mrs. Elizabeth Temple of Rome; also seven grandchildren and four great grandchildren. One granddaughter and two great grandsons live in Virginia. So far as known Mr. Lane was the oldest person in the town of Westmoreland. The funeral will be held from the home of his son-in-law, J.W. Robson, on Saturday at 1 p.m.

   Again we are called upon to chronicle the passing on of another of our older citizens.
   Our community was saddened Saturday afternoon when it became known that David Lockerby had answered the last summons.  The deceased had been in failing health for several years, and although confined to the house for several weeks past, was not obliged to keep to his bed.    His ailment had reached a stage seemingly beyond endurance and Saturday morning while en route to a Syracuse hospital, he passed away in the Central Square depot.   The remains were removed to the undertaking rooms in that village and were brought to his home here Sunday morning, where funeral services conducted by Rev. L.L. Davy of Fish Creek, were held Wednesday afternoon at 1 o'clock.  Oneida Lake Lodge No. 541, of which the deceased was a member, participated in the services.  The remains were placed in the vault of the village cemetery and internment will be made in Lakeview cemetery in the Spring.   Mr. Lockerby was born in what is known as the Lockerby district in the town of Vienna July 16, 1852, being one of eight children of the late Mr. and Mrs. David Lockerby, formerly well known residents of that vicinity.   On December 31, 1878, he was united in marriage to Maria Elizabeth Lockeridge of Ontario, Canada, who survives him, together with three sons, Harry and Willis of this village, and Edward of Clockville: also one sister, Mrs. Janette Cole of Tonawanda.   Mr. Lockerby was a kind father, a good neighbor and an obliging citizen.  He will be greatly missed by those who knew him best.   Those who attended the funeral from out of town were Peter Kirk and Herbert Saxton of Rome, Carl Drew of Oneida, Edward Lockerby and family of Clockville, George Knight of Camden, Mr. and Mrs. John Manchester and Glen Kirk of Jewell and Miss Mildred Austen of Kirkville.   To our fiends and neighbors who have so kindly and thoughtfully served us during the illness and death of our dear husband and father, we desire to hereby express our appreciation.

LOZON, Elizabeth
This obiturary appeared in a Utica newspaper (Utica Observer-Dispatch, I believe) in 1917:
Mrs. Henry LOZON (nee: DURHAM) passed from life at Clayville, Town of Paris.
Sincere grief came to many with the news of the passing of Mrs. Henry M. Lozon, which occurred recently at the home of her sister, Bertha A. Durham BIRD, of Clayville. A sad feature is the fact that her husband is in the National Army and is located at Camp Dix. The sympathy of the entire community is extended to him. Mrs. Lozon was born in Bridgewater, March 26, 1881, her maiden name being Theresa Elizabeth DURHAM. When she was 17 years old the family moved to Waterville, where she resided for many years. She married Mr. Lozon at Clayville, November 26, 1916, and has since made her home in that village. She was a member of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, of that place, and of the Rosary Society connected with that church. Her happy spirit and gracious womanhood had won for her many friends and her death brought sincere grief to many who knew and loved her. Besides her husband she is survived by an infant daughter, Emma Agnes; her mother, Mrs. Celina Cowles Durham, of Clayville; five sisters, Mrs. Alvin Smith of Frankfort; Mrs. David McCartney and Mrs. William Bennett of Waterville; Mrs. George Stetson of Stockwell; and Mrs. Melvin Bird of Clayville; and a brother, William Durham.

From The Little Falls Evening Times Sept., 1876
DIED - In Clark's Mills, Oneida co., N.Y., Albert W. Lucas, aged 64 years and 2 days.
Mr. Lucas was born in Middletown,Ct.  Resided there untill 1842, when he came to this State and settled in Leyden, Lewis county. In April, 1842, he married Elizabeth Bailey, of Leyden, with whom he lived happily until his death.  In 1862, when our country was calling for patriots to sustain her honor, Mr. Lucas was one of the many to respond to that call.  He served three years and one month, and though well along in years, was always ready and willing to perform the arduous duties of a soldier.  His only son, a noble young man,died in the service of his country.  Mr Lucas leaves a wife and two daughters who deeply mourn his loss.  He was a kind husband and father, generous hearted and liberal, and loved and respected by all who knew him.  Mr Lucas was the father of Mrs. Charles Habershon of this village.
