An Aged and Well Known Resident of St. Joseph Dead
   Mrs. Cynthia Gallup, more commonly known as "Grandma" Gallup, died at the home of her son, Richard, at 2:30 o'clock yesterday morning, January 20.  She was one of the oldest and best known women of the city, who counted her friends by her acquaintances.  Although her last sickness was
of brief duration on account of her age her death was not unexpected, and she died as she had lived, at peace with all.
   She was born in Cassville, N. Y., in 1806, where she lived until 1865, when she removed to St. Joseph, having married T. R. Gallup, her former name being Cynthia Budlong.  Mr. and Mrs. Gallup had born to them six children, five sons and one daughter, only one, Richard M. , of whom is
living now.  Her daughter, Clara Alexander, the next, having died about eight years ago, having three children who are in California.     Although being over 90 years old, her mind and heart were always active in any good work.  One of the last in which she was very much interested being a quilt, worthy of much praise, which she had made in order to help raise money to equip the new Baptist Church now being built at Thirteenth and Francis, of which she was a member. In her eighty-eighth year she made this wonderful quilt and began to place the name of any friend on it who would contribute 10 cents toward a seat in the church, which should be dedicated to her friends.  This was one of the delights of her heart.  As she saw her amount growing more pieces were placed on it and new names added with her own hands until a short time ago, she handed in $60 and said her work was finished, soon after passing away to be remembered as one who has passed before.

Death at Bon Homme, S.D., of a Native of Rome
The Springfield, S.D. Times has the following:
Mrs. Milton D. Gardner died at her home at Bon Homme on Thursday morning, March 8, after a week's illness. The deceased's condition became critical early in the week and absent ones were summoned, all the immediate members of the family being present, with the exception of the eldest son, Asa, who resides at New England, N.D., and who did not arrive until after his mother had passed away. Besides this son, Mrs. Gardner is survived by her husband, a second son, Clarence, and a daughter, Mrs. Silverwood, who with her husband arrived from Chicago before the end came.
Mrs. Gardner's maiden name was Ophelia Brewer, and she was born at Rome, N. Y., May 2, 1839. On May 1, 1861, she became the bride of Milton D. Gardner. In 1873 the family removed from Dubuque, Iowa, to Yankton, where Mrs. Gardner made many friends in the ten years she lived in this city, then in its pioneer period. The friendships formed in those early years never ceased when the family moved to Bon Homme, and there are numerous old-time citizens in this community who deeply regret the death of a valued friend. The year 1883 saw the Gardner family move to Bon Homme and the years that have passed since then have seen the Gardner home grow to be one of
the finest farms of that section. Its groves were resorted to by many for picnic parties, and to all Mrs. Gardner extended a kindly greeting, drawing around her as she had done in Yankton, many very dear friends who will mourn with the relatives in their loss.

GOODYEAR, Harry Atwater   --- Picture of Harry & Catharine Allen Curtiss Goodyear
"Life Spanned Almost 92 Years -- Death of Harry Goodyear"
Camden - May, 1907:  On Thursday night there came a message from Cadillac, Mich., announcing the death of Harry Goodyear, nearly a life-long and one of the oldest citizens of Camden.  Mr. Goodyear died that day after a brief illness of pneumonia, having been confined to his bed for only two days.
     The Goodyear family were among the pioneer settlers of Camden and have figured prominently in all that has pertained to the welfare and upbuilding of the village.  Deceased was a son of Edward and Leva (Alcott) Goodyear and was born in Wolcott, Conn.  Had he lived until May he would have been 92 years of age.  When a mere babe his parents moved to Brighton, Canada, going in the winter time on sleighs.  After a few years, or in 1820, they came to Camden, which with the exception of about nine years had ever since been his home.  For many years he was a farmer, and early in his married life he owned and occupied a farm in New Haven, Oswego County, for five years.  Returning to town he bought a place on the Talberg road, where he remained till he came into the village to reside some thirty-five years ago.  His wife, who was Catharine, daughter of Charles and Sabrina (Rice) Curtiss of West Camden, died several years ago, and since he had made his home with his son Pernett in Cadillac, Mich., where he passed away.
     Mr. Goodyear was a carpenter and worked at building after coming to the village.  Among his work was the building of the Dorrance & Wright block and the Presbyterian church.  He was one of four to erect the 105-foot steeple which ornaments that pretty edifice.  The other gentlemen included his brother, Lucius Barnes Goodyear, James Gerow, and the late Mr. Cook.  Deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church and its first sexton for many years.  He was a man kind, generous and
thoughtful of others, and his death comes as a great shock to his old friends.  Of his two children, his son, Pernett only survives, a veteran of the Civil War, Company II, 9th Regt. Heavy Artillery.  A daughter (Leve), the late Mrs. E. P. Woods, died many years ago, leaving a daughter, (Bertha) who is now Mrs. Albert Mickle of Utica.
     Deceased was one of the seven sons and one daughter of his father's family, of which but two survive, they being Lucius B. Goodyear of Camden and Mrs. P.C. Costello of New York City.
     The funeral was held in Cadillac and the remains arrived in Camden Saturday afternoon.  The burial was made at 9 a.m. Sunday in Forest Park cemetery, being preceded with a prayer service by the Rev. Mr. Moody of the Presbyterian church.   The bearers were Joseph Stark, Daniel Dunt, B. A. Curtiss and W.J. Stoddard.

GOODYEAR, Catharine Allen Curtiss
"Days of Sorrow to Some"
Mrs. Harry A. Goodyear
Camden - Sept. 1902:  On Sunday, Sept. 14, 1902, at 3:15 p.m. ending a long illness from fatty degeneration of the heart, out of the little white cottage No. 18 Washington street, this village -- her home for a generation -- Mrs. Harry A. Goodyear passed to her everlasting rest, aged 77 years, 3 months, 23 days.
     A word in commemoration of this good woman seems fit here:      Catharine Allen Curtiss, child of Charles and Sabrina Rice Curtiss, was born in Florence, N. Y., May 23, 1825.  On Feb. 4, 1847, she was united in marriage with Harry Atwater Goodyear, by Rev. R. R. Kirk of Camden.  Their life of 55½ years together has been passed in this town with the exception of ten years, 1855 to 1865, in Oswego Co.  This period covered the war for the Union.  Ten homely verses -- a dialogue between a youth and his mother, preserved on an old newspaper slip cherished by our deceased friend to the last, hint at the part she bore in the strange struggle of those trying times.  Two of the ten verses run thus: -- The son's request:--
"Have you heard the news that I hear today?
The news that trembles on every lip?
The sky is darker again, they say,
And breakers threaten the good old ship.
Our country calls on her sons again,
To strike in her name, at a dastard foe;
She asks for 600,000 men,
And I would be one, mother, let me go.
"He's my only boy, and this is my plan:
Perhaps it is foolish and weak;
But, mothers, I'm sure will have pity on me,
And some word will tenderly speak.
The light of my home -- my tears fall like rain--
Is it a wonder I shrink from the blow?
That my heart is crushed by the weight of pain?
But I've kissed him and let him go."
This woman's "only boy," Pernett Lucius "Frank" Goodyear, went as one of the 600,000 men at age 16, was wounded and regularly mustered out of service a young man, and is still living -- an invalid veteran.
     Why do I introduce to you this story with its homely verses? Simply to memorialize Mrs. Goodyear, to her honor and your profit.  It was like her, a principled doer of the proper, sensible, right thing -- in the considerate kindly way at the cost of whatever needful self denial.  This marked her a "Good Woman."
     Mrs. Goodyear was in a proper sense natively good -- of an amiable disposition and well-balanced.  "I knew here as a girl --a solid and sensible girl" says a neighbor. "By custom become habit, she was reliable, good in relations and testings of everyday life."
     The very names she was called by --"sister Catharine" i.e., clean, pure, and "Aunt Kate," confidentially kind and helpful, suggest appreciation, with a sense of loss in her going away. The last of her father's house, she leaves many a "sister" and many a "niece" wherever known.
     As covering all and modeling the natural and the habitual our friend was graciously good.  Early uniting with the visible Church, she walked with it -- in West Camden, Mexico, and Camden, to the end. Cherished be her memory, imitated her example.
     Two children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Goodyear, Pernett Lucius, now at Cadillac, Mich., and Leve Amantha, who, as wife of Elly P. Woods, died twenty-one years to a month, before her mother, on a September Sunday, and in the same house and same room as she, leaving a child of five years who was baptized as Bertha Floretta, at the mother's bedside, on the day of her death.  This child lived with her grandmother during the declining years, to their mutual advantage and comfort, until her recent marriage to Albert J. Mickle of Utica and their removal to that city.
     The funeral, held in the Presbyterian church at 2:30 yesterday afternoon, was largely attended.  Rev. Richard Abbott delivered the discourse, and Rev. E. N. Manley, for many years pastor of the deceased made the memorial remarks.                                  --(author: E. N. Manley)

Sarah Seely Grant
Obituary from Syracuse Post Standard Newspaper on Dec. 18, 1906 page 12 (have photocopy)
Finished Knitting a Pair of Stockings Only Last Saturday
Rome, Dec. 17.- Mrs. Sarah Seely Grant, widow of John B. Grant, died this morning at the hom e of her son, Rev. A. J. Grant. She had no illness, death being the result of old age and a g eneral wearing out of the system. She was apparently as well as usual last evening when she r etired. At 5:30 o'clock this morning she was thought to be sleeping soundly and half an hou r later it was discovered that she was dead, the body being yet warm.
     Mrs. Grant's maiden name was Sarah Seely. She was born  in Stamford, Conn., July 7, 1808 . Her father, Jehue Seely, moved to Lafayette, this state, when she was quite young. He fough t for America throughout the War of 1812 and was present at the engagement at Sackets Harbor.
     Mrs. Grant went to church in Onondaga county and at an early age joined the Methodists . The family lived on  the site of the City of Syracuse. There were then no regular hours o f worship in the township, services being conducted in an old log schoolhouse.
     Her father was a British sympathizer during the Revolution and would not fight on the Am erican side. Her husband assisted to put upon the tracks the first car ever constructed fo r a railroad in this state. The car was brought down from Albany to Syracuse by bob sleds. I t was taken to Geres lock, near Belle Isle, the then eastern terminus of what is now known a s the Auburn branch of the Central. The railroad was then called the Syracuse & Rochester roa d.
     Mrs. Grant possessed an accurate and retentive memory up to the last. Her sight was goo d and only Saturday she completed knitting a pair of stockings for her grandson. She was abou t the house as usual yesterday and her health up to the last had been considered excellent.

   Good Woman Gone
   Receiving the news late we could, last week but briefly mention the death of Mrs. Julia Grant who died at her home in Paddock on Nov. 18th.  Mrs. Grant, familiarly known to a horde of acquaintances as Grandma, was one of the early pioneers of this locality.  She was a woman of sterling character held in the highest respect by all who knew her and will be
 sorley missed.  Below we give the particulars of her most useful life as written by one who has known her for many years:
   Julia Ann Earl was born in Oneida county, N.Y., October 5th., 1821 and died November 18, 1913. She married in 1842 to Charles Francis Grant.  Soon after their marriage they came to Wisconsin, from there to Iowa, where they lived until 33 years ago, when they immigrated to Paddock, Minn., where she has since resided. She survived her husband 23 years.  Four
 children were born to bless their union, namely: Mrs. Mary Bryan of McLeod, N. D., John and David, who live in Paddock, and William who died two years ago at his in Iowa.
   Having always been a devoted Christian, a kind and loving mother and a good neighbor, she will be greatly missed by all who knew her.  She joined the Methodist Episcopal church at an early age and was great helper in the church as long as her health permitted.  She was one of five generations, having three living children six grand children, twenty greatgrand children and five great great grand children.   Funeral services were held at the home of her son John on Friday at 1:30 o'clock  Rev. Stokes
 officiating.  She was laid to rest in the Paddock cemetery beside her husband.
