COUPLE OBSERVES 68TH ANNIVERSARY (1929)
WERE MARRIED FEB. 9, 1861 AT LAFARGEVILLE
MR. AND MRS. GEORGE SOURWINE
Occasion Quietly Celebrated at Home of Son in Lafargeville--Both Are in Fairly Good Health.

(individual photos of Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine appeared on this page)

Lafargeviille, Feb. 11. -- On Saturday, Feb. 9, Mr. and Mrs. George Sourwine observed their 68th wedding anniversary.

Their wedding date was postponed as the date they had set was Feb. 7, 1861. But on that day it was so stormy, and as the guests were unable to reach the appointed place, the wedding was postponed until the following Saturday, Feb. 9.

The day dawned clear and Miss Mary Baltz and the bridegroom, George Sourwine, were united in marriage by the Rev. Mr. Schafer, at the home of the bride's father, Andrew John Baltz. Miss Caroline Dorr and Andrew Baltz, brother of the bride, stood up with them. It was a large wedding and of the many guests who attended only a brother of Mrs. Sourwine, Charles Baltz of Chicago, is living.

Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine started on their wedding trip to Rodman on the following Monday. They drove a team hitched to a long sleigh, and traveling was slow due to the heavy fall of snow. At Watertown it began to rain and this made the going still slower and harder for the horses and they were obliged to stop and rest within four miles of their destination. They stayed with a minister and family by the name of Spaulding. The rain storm increased and they were compelled to wait with them two days before they could complete their journey.

Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine started housekeeping on a farm near Depauville. Here they lived for six years, and then moved to a farm nearer Lafargeville where they made their home until within the last six years when they moved to this village to reside with their only son, Charles Sourwine. Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine are still in possession of a cherry drop leaf table which was one of their wedding gifts.

Mr. Sourwine is 93. He was born in New York city in 1836. When very young he went to work for his uncle, John Dorr and remained there until 18, receiving for his labors only his board and clothes. Mr. Sourwine has always lived on a farm. Now in his advanced years, he is very active.

Mrs. Sourwine is 91. She was born in 1838 near Stone Mills and up until six years ago has cared for her own home. She still is busy knitting and piecing quilts, but has had to forego these pastimes of late to some extent because of failing eye sight.

Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine are members of the Evangelistic church and both interested in politics.

Four children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Sourwine, Mrs. Anna Kemper, of Chicago, Mrs. Stella Fares of Detroit, Mrs. Eva Brady of Watertown, and Charles A. of this village. They have nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

Their 68th anniversary was celebrated quietly at the home of their son, Charles Sourwine, the only guests being their grandson, George Sourwine, jr., and family, who were there for dinner.

WOMAN NOTES 89TH BIRTHDAY (1930)

Lafargeville, Dec. 19. -- Mrs. Margaret Gibbons was honored at the home of her son, Charles Gibbons, on the Clayton Center-Depauville road, on Sunday, Dec. 14, the occasion being her 89th birthday.

Mrs. Gibbons was born in a log cabin on the shore of the St. Lawrence river near Spicer's Bay. The land surrounding the cabin was covered by a dense forest which later was cleared by her parents, the late Lawrence and Margaret Fox Fetterly. The farm is now owned by May Irwin.

Mrs. Gibbons' great-grandfather, Henry Fetterly, fought during the Revolutionary war and was last seen at the Battle of Oriskany, where he was wounded and left by his comrades in the thickest of the fight. After the battle he was not to be found and it was supposed that he had been scalped by the Indians.

Of a family of twelve children, only one besides Mrs. Gibbons is living, Martin Fetterly, at the Masonic Home in Utica. Mrs. Gibbons is enjoying good health and is able to be about by the aid of a cane, her lameness having been caused by an automobile accident several years ago. She does most of her own work and all of the household baking. She reads a great deal and during good weather takes many long auto trips.

Four generations were present at her birthday celebration, Edna Grant and Reuben Carter being the 4th generation.

A roast pork dinner was served at noon. Two birthday cakes were made for the occasion; one a large decorated cake made by her daughter, Mrs. Fannie Carter, and one with 89 candles on it, made by her son's wife, Mrs. Fred Gibbons.

ERNEST ALLISON DRIVER OF CAR
Limerick Resident, Friend of Victim, Says He Was Blinded By Lights of Approaching Machine--
Arnold Suffers Broken Back and Internal Injuries

Chaumont, Nov. 19. -- William H. Arnold, 61, farmer of this village, was fatally injured about 6 Tuesday evening when he was struck by a car driven by a friend, Ernest Allison of Limerick. The accident occurred a short distance from the corporation limits of Chaumont on the Three Mile Bay-Chaumont highway.

After the accident, Mr. Arnold was taken to his home about six rods from where the accident happened. Dr. O. J. LaFountain of this village was summoned but he pronounced the man dead when he arrived. It was said by the physician Mr. Arnold suffered internal injuries and a broken back.

Sheriff Frank D. Walrath and Deputy Sheriff James A. Rafferty investigated following a report made to the sheriff's office. After questioning Mr. Allison the sheriff said the accident had been unavoidable due to glaring headlights of a car approaching. These lights blinded Mr. Allison so he could not see Arnold who was walking on the edge of the road with a team of horses.

At the time of the accident Mr. Allison was driving toward Chaumont. He had not reached the corporation limits when his Dodge car struck Mr. Arnold. Mr. Arnold had just finished plowing in a field near his home and was driving his team back to the barn. He was not carrying a lantern.

Allison told the sheriff he had just passed one car coming toward him and another appeared with blinding headlights. He said when he did see Mr. Arnold he tried to avoid an accident but he was too near him to stop.

Mr. Arnold was hit by the front bumper on the car. A horse was knocked to the road but was not injured. As soon as Mr. Allison stopped his car he got out and found Mr. Arnold on the bumper. He lifted his friend from the bumper and laid him by the side of the road. John Dillenbeck of this village, a friend of the two men, came along in his car about the same time and with Mr. Allison they carried the injured man home in a blanket.

Mr. Allison told the sheriff after he had placed Mr. Arnold on the side of the road, he said, "Is your leg broken, Will?"

Mr. Arnold replied, "No, I guess not." After that he did not speak again, according to Mr. Allison.

After Dr. LaFountain pronounced the man dead he went to the barn where Mrs. Arnold was milking and notified her of her husband's death.

William H. Arnold was born on Galloups Island, Feb. 15, 1869, a son of the late Jacob H. and Ellen Arnold. He lived on the island until he was 14 years of age and then came to this section where he had since lived.

He was married to Miss Minnie Cameron of this village on Oct. 5, 1898. Mr. Arnold was a member of the Presbyterian church here.

Surviving besides his widow, Mrs. Minnie Cameron Arnold, of this village, are three daughters, Mrs. Chester Priest of Nyack, Mrs. George Lince and Miss Edith Arnold of Watertown; a son, Henry Arnold of Watertown; a brother, Charles Arnold of Chaumont; three sisters, Mrs. Edith Armstrong of Chaumont, Mrs. Mark Steele of Adams and Mrs. Oliver Medsger of Arlington, N. J., and two grandchildren, Helen and Jean Lince, of Watertown.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete.

    Fracture of Skull and Legs--Inquest Held Today.

Rosalind Helen Longway, eight-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Longway, Clayton, R. D. 2, died at 12:40 this morning at the House of the Good Samaritan from injuries she received Tuesday afternoon about 4:30 when she was struck by a car about three miles north of Depauville and only a few rods from her home on the Clayton-Depauville road.

The girl suffered a fracture of the skull, fractures of both legs above the knees and cuts and bruises. She was unconscious from the time of the accident until her death.

The automobile which struck the Longway girl, a Ford Tudor sedan, was owned and driven by Perley Edmonds, 28, of Depauville, employe of the Warner Knitting company of Clayton. Edmonds left Clayton about 4 Tuesday afternoon and was driving on the new cement road.

Edmonds was questioned this morning by Assistant District Attorney Howard B. Donaldson at the latter's office. Mr. Donaldson was informed of the fatality by authorities of the House of the Good Samaritan at 1 this morning.

According to testimony Edmonds gave at the inquest, the Longway truck, driven by John Longway, grandfather of the dead girl, was parked on the right hand side of the road opposite the Longway farm, facing the approaching Edmonds' machine. Edmonds said he was proceeding at a rate of about 35 miles an hour at the time of the accident.

When the front part of his car was even with the rear end of the Longway truck, Edmonds testified two girls, Rosalind and her sister, Pern, 10, darted across the street from the rear of the truck. The right head light of the Edmonds car struck the younger girl, Pern, who followed her sister, stepped back in time to avoid being struck. The two girls were returning home from school.

Edmonds was alone in the car at the time. Questioned by Assistant District Attorney Donaldson, John Longway, the grandfather of the girl and the driver of the truck .........(missing sentences).........said there were other men in the truck, but did not know their names.

Following directly behind the Edmonds machine was a Buick driven by John Goldthswaite, traveling salesman of Somerville, Mass., who stopped, picked up the injured girl and brought her to the office of Dr. Frank Henne, Clayton, followed by Edmonds. After administering first aid, Dr. Henne ordered the girl to be removed to a hospital.

Troopers Hennessey and Schneider of Clayton, who were patrolling the Clayton-Depauville highway at the time of the accident, investigated. A report was made to them by Edmonds. The two troopers, with troopers from Theresa are continuing the investigation and will make a report to Assistant District Attorney Donaldson. The inquest will be continued, Mr. Donaldson said.

The remains of the Longway girl were removed to the William R. Box company undertaking parlors and this morning Walter P. Cummings, Clayton, took them to his parlors and later to the home of her grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. John Longway, Clayton-Depauville road, about three miles from Clayton.

The girl was born May 29, 1922, at Clayton, a daughter of Roy and Florence Washer Longway. She attended a district school in the town of Clayton near her home. Besides her parents, her sister, Pern, and her grandparents, she is survived by several aunts and uncles. Her parents resided next door to the grandparents.

Funeral services will be held Friday morning at 9 at the home of her grandparents and at 9:30 at the St. Mary's Catholic church at Clayton, Rev. George Racette, pastor, officiating. Burial will be at Clayton.

 

MAN SMOTHERED IN GRAVEL CHUTE (1930 ?)
Buried Under Tons of Gravel in Cave-in at Sand Pit Near Lafargeville
ROY HEYL, 25, DIES BEFORE COMPANIONS EXTRICATE HIM
Efforts of Fellow Workers To Save Him From Death are Futile
PULMOTOR FAILS TO REVIVE HIM
Young Man Dead When Workmen Carry Him from Chute After Digging Away Gravel Which
    Covered Him--Two Doctors Summoned But They Are Unable to Aid Victim

Lafargeville, Aug. 25.--Caught in a gravel chute when several tons of gravel caved in around him, Lloyd Heyl, 28 (sic), son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Heyl of this village, was smothered to death about 8 last night before he could be extricated.

The accident occurred when Heyl climbed above the chute in a gravel pit near here to shovel the loose stone near the opening so that it could be poured into a truck waiting below.

The gravel suddenly caved in and Heyl was carried partially through the chute so that his legs protruded above the box of the truck below. The sliding gravel poured around him in such fashion as to prevent him from breathing and by the time he could be dragged out he was dead.

When the driver of the truck, whose name was not learned, saw Heyl's legs come through the chute he seized them and attempted to pull the man through. The weight of the wet gravel, however, prevented this and then several men working in the pit attempted to get above the chute and shovel the gravel away.

In this they were unsuccessful because of the fact that the gravel caved in as rapidly as they shoveled. There are several chutes in the pit and after Homer Nellis, of Lafargeville had opened one of the other chutes permitting the gravel to flow off it was possible to get Heyl out.

Dr. J. T. Fowkes, sr., of this village and Dr. J. T. Fowkes, jr. were both summoned and attempted to revive the man. A pulmotor was brought from Clayton and the physicians worked for two (unclear) without success.

He had been in an accident about 12 years ago when he lost his right hand and the thumb on his right hand. It is thought that the stump of his right hand may have caught in the chute as he slid through preventing him from passing into the truck below. The chute is about 12 inches square.

The sand pit is owned by Elmer Haller and is located on the Black Creek road between Clayton and Lafargeville about three miles from this village. Heyl was employed as a truck driver hauling (incomplete).

 

HUNTER MISSING AS CRAFT SINKS (Nov. 30, 1930)
Search Begun After He Vanishes in Guffins Bay
ROY MACFARLAND, AGED 23, DEPAUVILLE, DISAPPEARS
EYE-WITNESSES CLAIM BOAT CAPSIZED HALF MILE OFF SHORE
WINDSTORM SWEEPS BOAT OUT
Missing Man Seen Standing in Boat, Waving Arms Wildly For Aid Between Mainland and Cherry
    Island Sunday--Relatives Think He May Have Reached Island.

Roy MacFarland, 23, Depauville, is believed to have drowned Sunday afternoon while duck hunting off the north shore of Guffins Bay when his rowboat was swept out to the middle of the bay during a windstorm.

It is the opinion of county authorities and those who last saw the young man that the boat was swamped by the heavy sea and that the hunter was drowned.

He was last seen by Mrs. Nettie Herrick, who resides on a farm near Adams Cove. At that time the man stood up in the boat which was a half mile from the mainland and waved his arms in the air. The boat then drifted out of sight.

Louis Majo, farmer, residing near the Herrick farm, and Howard Cossleman, Brownville, also watched the movements of the boat. They saw it in the bay. It was headed towards Cherry Island, a mile and a quarter from the shore. When it was about half way over it vanished from sight, they said, and they summoned aid at once.

Seven miles of the shore was patrolled, including the south shore of Point Salubrious, but no trace of the boat was found. A theory is advanced that MacFarland might have reached Cherry Island but it is scouted by Pillar Point residents.

Marcus MacFarland, father, and brother arrived at Pillar Point early this morning. They wanted to be sure Roy was not at Cherry Island. They went to Point Salubrious to get a boat and go over to Cherry Island. The waves were rolling high in the lake this morning.

MacFarland started early Sunday morning to hunt ducks. He went first to Dexter but because of the ice there was unable to get his boat into position.

Early in the afternoon he arrived at Adams Cove and arranged with Fred H. Utter for decoys and a boat. Mr. Utter said today that he gave the young man three live decoys and some wooden ones.

According to Mr. Utter the man got into the boat and started to set out the decoys.

There was a high wind from the south and the waves were about five feet high. It is believed that when MacFarland attempted to row back, he was unable to advance against wind and current. The fact that Mrs. Herrick saw him waving his arms is considered an indication that he became frightened.

Mr. Utter today said that one of the wooden decoys was picked up near the Ivan J. Gotham cottage shore Sunday night. Fisherman in the vicinity expressed the belief that the flat bottomed boat filled with water and sank. Mr. Utter retrieved the two remaining live decoys.

Roy MacFarland is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Marcus MacFarland, Depauville. Mr. MacFarland married Miss Ann Fuller of Adams about a year ago. They had resided in Depauville for about a month where Mr. MacFarland conducted a shoe repair shop and Mrs. MacFarland, a restaurant, both in the same building.

 

MISSING MAN'S BOAT FOUND (1930)
CRAFT BOTTOM UP OFF POINT SALUBRIOUS
DRIFTED NEARLY THREE MILES
Anchor on 30 Feed of Rope Dragging Bottom--Lloyd MacFarland, 23,
    Depauville, Still Missing--Plan to Drag For Remains Today.
(with photo of Mr. MacFarland)

First definite proof that Lloyd MacFarland, 23, of Depauville, was drowned Sunday afternoon while hunting ducks from a row boat off Pillar Point was revealed when the boat he used was found bottom up at 5 Wednesday afternoon, about 300 feet off Point Salubrious in Guffins Bay. The body is still missing.

The boat was discovered by Arthur Fuller of Adams, father-in-law of the youth, and E. G. Williams, 624 Mundy street, city. The boat's anchor was dragging from about 30 feet of rope. It kept the boat from drifting ashore sooner. The men experienced difficulty in getting the boat to shore, because of ice formations along the shore line.

Marcus MacFarland, father of the drowned man, arrived on the scene shortly after the boat was found and, with those present, made plans for dragging the bay today for the body. Because of a strong northeast wind blowing the waves high, it was impossible to start dragging proceedings this morning.

Sheriff Frank D. Walrath spent Tuesday afternoon aiding in the search. He will have deputy sheriffs assist in dragging when weather conditions permit.

Fred H. Utter, proprietor of the store at Adams Cove, who rented the boat to Mr. MacFarland Sunday afternoon, identified his craft late Wednesday.

The boat had drifted about three (blurred) ____ from the spot where it is thought it overturned. On the day of the drowning the wind blew from the south and the waves are believed to have carried the boat into the bay. Since then the wind has been from the southwest. It would tend to blow the boat toward Point Salubrious, it is said.

About 25 persons aided in the search Wednesday. On Tuesday one of the oars of the boat drifted ashore near Adams Cove.

 

BODY OF YOUTH FOUND IN LAKE
Seen Floating This Morning Near Morehouse (sic) Cottage, Point Salubrious
LLOYD MACFARLAND, DEPAUVILLE WAS DROWNED ON NOV.30, 1930
WAS DUCK HUNTING IN GUFFIN'S BAY WHEN BOAT WAS SWAMPED
FATHER IDENTIFIES THE BODY
Body Found a Mile From Where the Boat Sunk Seven Months Ago--Believe Electrical
    Storm Brought Remains to Surface During Night.

The body of Lloyd MacFarland, 23, of Depauville, who was drowned Sunday afternoon, Nov. 30, 1930, while duck hunting in Guffins Bay, was recovered this morning a mile from where he was last seen in his boat when it was swamped in a heavy sea. The body was found floating near the Charles Moorehouse (sic) cottage on Point Salubrious.

Although the youth's body was badly decomposed, it was identified by his father, Marcus MacFarland of Depauville, who was summoned by county authorities when it was reported the body had been found. The father identified the youth by his hunting license, which was still fastened to his coat, and the clothing.

Charles Moorehouse, who is staying at his cottage on the south side of Point Salubrious, saw the body this morning at 6:30 when he left his cottage to come to this city. He saw it floating about eight feet from shore in about a foot and a half of water.

When questioned by county authorities, Moorehouse said he had been around the cottage Friday but did not see the body. It is believed that the heavy sea Friday night and the electrical storm that swept over the bay brought the body to the surface.

Sheriff Frank D. Walrath detailed Deputy Sheriff Roy Schuyler and Deputy Sheriff Ray Johndrow to investigate.

The district attorney's office appointed Dr. A. J. LaFountaine to act as coroner's physician. When the two deputies and the physician arrived at the Moorehouse cottage, the body was still in the water. The coroner's physician ordered it taken from the water. Deputies Harrington and Schuyler, in a skiff, brought the body to shore.

After Dr. LaFountaine had completed his investigation he ordered the body removed to the I. S. Clark funeral chapel in Chaumont.

The county authorities said the body was found a short distance from where the youth's pocketbook was found last spring. The watch in his pocket today had stopped.

MacFarland was duck hunting off the north shore of Guffins bay on Nov. 30, 1930, at the time of the tragedy. There was a heavy sea rolling that day and it is believed that the boat was swamped.

The young man was last seen by Mrs. Nettie Herrick, who resides on a farm near Adams Cove. At that time he stood up in the boat, a half mile from the mainland. He was seen to wave his arms in the air. The boat then drifted out of sight.

For several days after MacFarland disappeared a search was made by the county authorities for the body. They dragged the bay several times and dynamite was used.

Lloyd MacFarland was the son of Alice Card and Marcus MacFarland. He was born at Chaumont, but later moved to Depauville with his parents.

As a young man, MacFarland left home and traveled extensively through the United States and Canada. He had twice sailed from coast to coast and spent a season in Hawaii and traveled through the Philippine Islands.

Besides his wife, Mrs. Anna Fuller MacFarland, he is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Marcus MacFarland; two brothers, Rollo and George MacFarland, all of Depauville, and one sister, Shellah, of Depauville.

Dr. D. G. Gregor attended him.

Mr. Van Alstyne, with other employees, was filling the ice house at the plant and was operating a hoist on the platform on the front part of the building. Inadvertently he placed his hand on the cable on a drum of the hoist. His arm was drawn between the drum and the cable and twisted just below the elbow.

Frank Celleni, who was working nearby, went to the assistance and John Dillenbeck, another employe took him to the office of Dr. O. J. LaFountaine. Dr. LaFountaine, after giving first aid, advised the man's removal to the hospital. It was stated at the hospital that the bone was badly crushed, but that an amputation will probably be unnecessary.

MAN GETS $4,923 FOR CRUSHED ARM

ACCIDENT OCCURRED YEAR AGO
Patrick Cassidy, City, Receives Lump Sum Award of $700 for Decreased Earnings Since
    Oct. 17, 1928--Accident to Back Occurred in 1925.

Carl VanAlstyne, 29, of Chaumont, who was seriously injured Jan. 22, 1931, while working for the Dairymen's League Cooperative Association, received an award of $4,923.24 for 90 per cent loss of the use of his right arm at the compensation court session held in the state armory Tuesday afternoon. The award was made by Referee James P. Richardson of Syracuse.

Mr. Van Alstyne, employed at the Chaumont plant of the league at the time of the accident, was harvesting ice at Chaumont Bay. In some manner while ice was being hoisted his arm became caught in a hoisting drum, badly crushing it.

For some time he was a patient both in the House of the Good Samaritan here and Faxton hospital in Utica, and underwent numerous operations and considerable treatment. His arm, however, was not amputated.

After an examination at the hearing Tuesday, Dr. W. S. Cooke, Syracuse, examiner for the state industrial commission, recommended the 90 per cent loss of use of the arm, announced that the loss was permanent and said that further surgical treatment would be a "hazardous and useless matter." No improvement in the condition of the arm could be expected, he said. The young man was examined jointly by Dr. Cooke and Dr. D. G. Gregor.

The award compensated the young man was for 301.8 weeks at $16, 34 a week and will be paid him weekly. Mr. VanAlstyne is unmarried. The Utica Mutual Insurance Company carried the case, which was closed with the making of the award.

Earl R. Clemons, 47, of Depauville, was admitted to the House of the Good Samaritan Sunday morning about 7 with both legs fractured below the knees when he was pinned between the front of his truck and the wall in the barn of his home.

About 8 Sunday night his son, Frank L. Clemons, 20, of Depauville, was admitted to the same hospital and immediately underwent an operation for appendicitis. Dr. H. G. Farmer is attending both father and son, having performed the operation on Frank Clemons.

The father was reported as resting more comfortably this morning and is expected to recover. The condition of Frank Clemons was described as good this morning.

The elder Mr. Clemons draws milk by truck from Depauville to the station of the Dairymen's League plant at Clayton. Early Sunday morning he went to the barn of the Clemons' home to make preparations for his trip to Clayton with the milk.

The truck was in gear at the time and as he cranked it the truck started forward, pinning the man between the front bumper and the wall.

The injured man called for aid. His daughter, Ella, hearing his calls, notified her mother. She hurried to the barn and then summoned Mr. and Mrs. Amos Lewis and Milton Sprague, neighbors, who went to Mr. Clemons' rescue.

Dr. R. L. Gray of Clayton was summoned to the Clemons' residence and he accompanied the injured man to the hospital.

The elder Mr. Clemons was called home Saturday night from a meeting at Depauville of Dairymen's League producers by the illness of his son, Frank, a truck driver for the state highway department, who suddenly suffered an acute attack of appendicitis. At that time Dr. Gray was called. He was removed to the hospital in the evening after his condition failed to improve. Later an operation was decided upon.
