Esteemed Resident of Stanwix for Over Half a Century.
John R. Temple, in his 81st year died at his home in Stanwix at 10:20 a.m. today.  He had been in feeble health for a number of years from the infirmities of advancing age but had been confined to his bed only the past week.  Surviving are his wife, two sons and one daughter, George J. and Thompson R. and Miss Elizabeth Temple, all residing at home. He also leaves
one brother George Temple of Bartlett. Mr. Temple was born in Wilton, Yorkshire, England, on July 29, 1826, and
came to this country about 1850, locating near Stanwix where the remainder of his life was spent.  About thirty-six years ago he married Miss Hannah Jones of this city.  Mr. Temple was a blacksmith by trade and a very skillful one.  His work was so well done that his trade was not confined to the immediate vicinity of Stanwix but he numbered among his patrons many
who lived at a distance.  One of the secrets of his success was that whatever he undertook to do he did to the best of his ability, winning an enviable reputation. As a husband, parent, neighbor and friend he was ever faithful, and he was held in high esteem. He was an earnest member of the First M.E. Church, attending whenver he was able, but since retiring from
active work about twelve years ago he has been in poor health. In politics Mr. Temple was a lifelong Republican and he took great pride in the fact that he cast his first vote for Fremont.  He always took more or less active interest in politics in his quiet way but never sought nor would he accept any political office.

William Temple, Sr. was born at Wilton, England, July 17, 1824, died at Marysville, KS Nov. 5, 1904, aged 80 years, 3 months and 19 days. In 1859, he was married to Mary Netherill.

Brother Temple was brought up in the Church of England, but has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church since 1866, when he joined that church at Westmoreland, N.Y. He loved to talk about the great meetings he enjoyed in his old home in the east and longed to witness again such demonstrations of God's saving power. For many months his strength has been failing while his soul has been ripening for his translation. His confidence was strong in Christ his savior and no fears darkened his moral sky. He often expressed the desire to depart to be with Christ and to see again the three children who have preceded him to the better land, beside whose sleeping dust at Wesmoreland N.Y. his own body is to rest until the resurrection morning.
The funeral services were conducted at the ME Church Sunday morning by the Rev. Urner.

Tracy Tyler
Rome Sentinel-Jan. 10, 1894
McConnellsville, Jan. 9 - At 2:30 am today Tracy Tyler died at his home, aged 84 years.  Mr. Tyler was born in the town of New Hartford, this county.  When he was 21 years old he came to the town of Vienna and lived in this vicinity ever after.  Since 1870 he has carried the mails from this place part of the time to Cleveland, until the N.Y. O. & W. R.R. was built, then the route was shortened to Vienna, and later on the route was divided again between the R. W. & O. station and Vienna.  For the past ten years he has carried the mails between the station and post office at this place.  No one in this community could be more missed than Mr. Tyler.  He was kind, generous and obliging many times discommoding himself to accommodate others.  When a boy he united with the M. E. Church and all these years he has truly lived a consistant Christian life.  upwards of fifty
years he has served as trustee, steward and class leader of the church at this place and in the church he will be most missed.  Mr. Tyler's first wife died in 1869.  Several years after her death he was married to Miss Harriet Cooper of Orwell, who survives him.  There are also four children, Alfred, Charles and Miss Martha Tyler, all now living in Kansas, and Mrs. J. A. Daniels of this place.  The funeral service will take place from the M. E. Church at 6:30 pm on Friday.

Harriet Tyler
Rome Sentinel-Jan. 18, 1894
McConnellsville - Jan 18 - Mrs. Harriet Tyler - widow of the late Tracy Tyler, whose death was mentioned in last week's Sentinel - died on Tuesday at the age of 62 years at her home.  Her funeral will take place from the house at 12 o'clock on Friday, just one week from the date of her husband's funeral.  Her remains will be taken to Sand Bank, Oswego county for interment.  Her father and other friends are buried there.  Mr. and Tyler both died of typhoid pneumonia.  On account of her many traits of Christian character she will be greatly missed in the community.  She was a faithful member of the
ME Church.  A singular incident in connection with the sudden taking off of this aged couple is the death of Mr. Tyler's faithful mare, Beauty. She had carried the mails constantly for Mr. Tyler for twenty-five years and had become as familiar a figure as was Mr. Tyler himself and after he was taken ill no one could get her to eat her rations as she had taken them before.  On the day after Mr. Tyler died she was driven to the woods for a load of wood, by Mr. Tyler's grandson, W. J. Daniels.   In felling a small tree it fell intirely different from what he had calculated.  It struck Beauty on the head and killed her.
