Delaware Gazette - 14 Nov 1827 - Died - In Andes, on the 27th ult., Mrs. Sally VAUGHN, wife of Mr. John Vaughn, in the 28th year of her age. The death of Mrs. Vaughn is one of the many instances of mortality which should be considered not only as a private but a public loss. In her engaging qualities of a wife, a companion, a mother, and a neighbour, were blessed with the utmost harmony. But the most distinguishing trait in her character was her firm and unvaried attachment of her Divine Master. She bore her long and painful illness with calmness and submission, which, the Christian only knows. She ever manifested the most cheerful willingness to depart and be with Christ; and the most perfect composure resided her spirit into the hands of her Redeemer.**

Walton Reporter - Jan 4, 1883 - We learn from the Scranton Journal that Mr. John RAYMOND'S funeral was held in that city, on Dec. 21st. His remains were taken to Greenwood Cemetery, Brooklyn, N. Y., for burial. The Journal says:
He was born in Walton, Delaware County, N. Y. in 1795, and although he left there over sixty years ago, it was one of his chief delights to meet with any one who was from his native town, and to describe the scenes of his early childhood and the beauties of his native place. His father wa drafted in the army in 1814, and "Uncle John," then a young enthusiastic man of nineteen, went as substiture and served in his father's stead. In 1818, he moved to ¦ethany, then the county seat of Wayne County, Pa., and was married a year afterward to Elizabeth SPANGENBURG, who although she has been an invalid for several years, still survives him. He remained at Bethany untill 1835, when he moved to Salem, and resided there for twenty years, going from thence to Archald, and coming to Scranton, in 1856, where he has resided ever since. He leaves one child, a daughter, the wife of G.. B. HACKLEY, of New York. As his familiar title of "Uncle" by which he was known, indicates, all our citizens felt that he was a personal friend and relative. He was known to almost everyone here, and respected and honored by all who knew him.

P. R. Gott, at her late residence. Mrs. Kelsey's maiden name was WEBB. She spent her life in the valley of the Delaware - her father's farm being on the opposite side of the river from that of her husband's. Mrs. K. has been in poor health for more than a year. She will be greatly missed by her husband and children, as she rarely went from home, where she devoted her life to making home and its inmates comfortable. I think she is the last but one of a large family of the first settlers. (signed Ruth - probably the Cannonsville correspondent)

Walton Reporter - Feb 26, 1885 - Died in Addison, Jan. 8th, 1885 Mrs. R. S. WOODBURN, of paralysis, in the 54th year of her age. Her sidden demise was a shock and seldom has the scipture injunctions, "Be ye also ready, there is but a step between me and death," been more forcibly brought to mind. Mrs. W. was born in Hamden, Delaware county, where she resided until 1850. She had many friends in the town of her birth, but her strongest attachments were in Walton, where she united with the Congregational church, and gathered around her many friends whose fidelity was unbounded. The church of her choice, and her love for those who were her companions in Sabbath-school and prayer meeting was abiding. Mrs. W. had been a sufferer for years; but for eighteen months, from paralysis, helpless a portion of the time, and during all these months, when conscious, never free from aggravating pain. She bore her sickness with fortitude; was even cheerful, knowing full well, that a return of disease might bear her to the spirit land any moment; yet her cheerfulness remained. She had been unusually bright during Saturday, and the first intimation of a second paralytic stroke, about eight o'clock, was in her not being able to reply. The voice that never failed to respond to wants of the needy or sympathize with the sorrowing, was silenced forever The eyes that gazed upon husband and son so tender and lovingly, closed to all earthly objects, to gaze upon her Savior, and unfading glories, through the eternal ages. With said heart and dimmed eyes, we say to them, look up.
"For in the bright eternal city
Death can never, never come."
Mrs. Woodburn, formerly Jane WAKEMAN, was a member of Wm. ANDREWS family at the time of her marriage, having moved from Hamden to Walton with him.

Delaware Gazette - Oct. 23, 1895, Wed. - Dr. Dexter G. GORDON
The people of this village have seldom had their sympathies so awakened as in the case of the young man whose remains were laid to rest in Woodland Cemetery Monday.
Dr. Gordon was a dentist who but for a few months ago was a rising young man in his profession. He had graduated with unusual honors, and had already established a successful practice. He had been married about two years, and a bright future seemed to be in prospect. A few weeks ago, however, there began to develop signs of insiduous disease. He consulted specialists in New York, but they gave little encouragement. Only one course was advised, and that was to try some more favorable climate. Accordingly the young couple made ready for their journey, and just three weeks ago bid their friends goodbye and started for Denver.
The people of the entire village extended their sympathies and were eager to receive tidings. They were at first favorable. He stood the journey with remarkable fortitude. They reached Denver and commenced to make a home. For the first day or two the atmosphere of the high altitude seemed to give something of hope, but it was of short duration. The phycicians soon gave his wife the advice that if she wished to have her husband return with her alive they must make ready to return immediately. The news was sent home and in a few hours they were on their journey back. Her father Colonel R. P. CORMACK also started from Delhi on the same day and met them at Chicago Thursday morning. There were no delays in the trains and every kindness was extended on the whole route. When they arrived in Delhi at 3:40 Friday afternoon, the doctor had become so weak that he had to be carried to the house on a stretcher. He seemed grateful to have been spared to reach home, but it was not for long. At 6:30 he died.
His funeral was on Monday from St. John's Church, of which he was a communicant, and was attended by a large number of friends, the Rector, Rev. Mr. Livermore officiating.
Dr. Gordon was born in Delhi, and was about 25 years of age. He took a high stand in his professional studies and graduated with unusual honors before he was old enough to practice for himself. As soon as he was 21 he opened an office and was very successful. He leaves wife, the daughter of Col. and Mrs. R. P. Cormack, his mother, Mrs. Daniel FRANKLIN, of this village, and a sister, Mrs. FURMAN of Oneonta.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Furman and son of Oneonta, and Mrs. A. B. BRUCE of Andes, were in Delhi Monday, being called to attend the funeral of Dr. D. G. Gordon.**
