5 Apr 1849 Died, In this village, on the 1st inst., of Consumption, Mrs. Stata S., wife of Hon. William BARTLIT, aged 57 years.
    Our society have met with a deep loss in the death of this estimable woman. With her husband, she was among the first settlers of this village. From our early boyhood - for a period exceeding thirty years - have we intimately known the woman whose remains we yesterday followed to the tomb and it is not from the ordinary tendency to forget the faults, and overrate the merits of the dead., but from the deliberate convictions of our judgment, that we say she was personally and in every social relation - as the wife, the mother, the friend, and the neighbor - one of the most perfect of her sex. We remember her in all the situations and circumstances in which she would necessarily be placed before us by long and familiar acquaintance - we remember her young and beautiful the mattron, the suffering invalid of years, and on no occasion were we ever made the witness of an act, a word, or a look, for which the most partial friendship could feel regret. And our own experience in this particular is but the experience of the whole circle of her friends. Nor were her virtues merely of the passive or negative kind, No woman discharged her duties to society better, or while health permitted, more actively. But in these, as, in our judgment, her sex always should, she shunned the glare of observation. It is to the memory of the recipients of them, that you must go for a record of
   "Her little, nameless, unremembered acts
    Of kindness and of love."
    There, are the only records which she willingly left of them. And who of us have not some of these to cherish, as painful yet pleasing remembrances of that gentle, loving, high toned, and noble woman?

Died, In McGrawville, on the 16th inst., of inflammation of the Bowels, Harry McGRAW, aged 52 years.
    In the death of this estimable man, society has sustained a great loss. He was a merchant of the first respectability. In point of business capacity, probity of character, fair dealing and suavity of manners, he was excelled by no merchant in our county. He has frequently been called, by the partiality of his friends to fill offices of trust and responsibility, and he has never failed to discharge the duties of office with credit to himself, and satisfaction to his constituents. His sickness was of but a weeks duration.

Died, In McGrawville, on the 13th inst., Mrs. Susan AUSTIN, wife of Asa AUSTIN, in the 63d year of her age.

24 May 1849

Died, In McGrawville, on the 13th inst., Mrs. Susan AUSTIN, wife of Asa AUSTIN, in the 63d year of her age.
    The deceased was born in Leyden, Mass., but had been a resident of this county for nearly forty years. The family have to bereave the loss of an affectionate wife and kind mother - the community in which she resided, a kind neighbor and valued friend. Although we mourn over the loss of one so highly esteemed and respected, in her death we see the impress of an all-wise and beneficent God, who judgeth all things for the good of man, and yield obedience to his mandate.

31 May 1849

Died, In Cortlandville, on the 23d inst., Hiram, son of Charles and Mary NEWTON, aged 1 yr and two months.

Died, In Antonio de Bexar, Texas, on the 28th of April, of Cholera, Heman COGSWELL, formerly of this town aged 35 years.

Died, In Harford, on the 21st inst., Joel MOULTON, a Revolutionary Soldier, aged 94 years.

7 Jun 1849

Died, At his residence in East Virgil, on the 5th inst., of the Cholera, Wm. GRAY, aged 54 years.
    The sudden death of this estimable man settled a deep gloom upon this community. He filled a large space in the hearts and affections of his numerous friends, and his loss will be keenly felt. He was an affectionate and indulgent parent, a kind and loving husband, an upright and generous man. Being on business at the city of New York, it is supposed he caught the fatal disease the Cholera. He returned to his family sick, and died in three days from the first attack. His loss will be deeply deplored by his wife and children and a large circle of friends.
    What his views were in respect to the future, we are not left to conjecture. But we have undoubted reason to believe that he died in the full and confiding faith in Christ, and has gone to enjoy his reward. Our sympathy is called forth for the family in this sudden bereavement. May "He who tempers the wind to the shorn lamb," guard and protect the widow and fatherless.

Died, At his redidence, in Lansing, Tompkins Co., Dr. Hiram MOE, aged 47 years.
    In the death of Dr. MOE a large domestic circle has been visited by the saddest bereavement - the Christian Church deprived of one of its richest ornaments. The medical profession, in his death has lost a faithful, devoted, and distinguished member, and the county in which he resided for more than twenty years, one of its most valuable and worthy citizens. His life was a practical illustraion of the elevating tendencies of a pure christianity.

Mert Sarvay. There were a couple of typographical errors in the text, which I left in. These were very rare. Other errors are probably my typing, which I tried to find and correct. Thus endeth the roll of film. This edition of the newspaper announced the business had been sold to new owners.
