The following are transcribed obituaries from a scrapbook of clippings I have received following the passing of my grandmother - Mildred Gray Ruteshouser Wakeman. They all pertain to my family search: TERRY, GRAY, RUTESHOUSER, CANTWELL, etc. I have not put them in any particular order and the last few (Leland Gray and Mildred Gray Ruteshouser Wakeman) were pretty recent - they were my great-uncle and maternal grandmother. Sorry, I don't know most of the newspapers they were clipped from as they came to me already cut-out. I tried to put death dates at the bottom of each obit as far as I know. --Deb Sprechman, September 26, 2005

OBITUARY - MRS. ADELIA TERRY

Died at her home on Delaware Street, Monday, June 11. ADELIA, widow of the late DOWE TERRY, aged 67 years.

MRS. TERRY was a native of Hamden, the daughter of PHILIP BRISACK. Of the family of nine children, four only are left, FREDERICK BRISACK, MARCUS BRISACK, MRS. CHAS. ANDREWS and DANIEL BRISACK, all of whom live in Walton. At the age of nineteen she married DOWE TERRY. The union was a happy one. They lived a number of years in Hamden on the farm now occupied by WESLEY TERRY, and from there removed to Pepacton, where MR. TERRY purchased a large farm and engaged extensively in the lumber business. Here they lived until MR. TERRY'S death, which occurred in 1877. MRS. TERRY then came back to Hamden and has lived there and in Walton with her children since.

She was a quiet, unassuming, Christian woman. Early in life she united with the Congregational church, and her life has always been consistent with her profession. A devoted wife and a loving mother to the eleven children who came to bless their union, and to where her memory will ever be sacred.

MRS. TERRY had always wished for a family reunion, but never since the death of her husband seventeen years ago, had all her children been with her. All were present at her funeral with their husbands and wives. Below is given the names which they bear now and their places of residence.

The names and residence of the children are as follows: JENNIE A. married J.N. Holmes, RESIDES IN Binghamton; S. ELECTA married C.P.RADEKER, resides in Andes; ABBIE, married G.E. GRIFFITH, resides in Delhi; MARY married C.T. BARNHART, resides in Walton; LUCY, married W. RAITT, resides in Walton; JACOB, resides in Meredith; CHARLES, resides in Walton; CORA, married G. ROBINSON, resides in Walton; SUSIE, married W.H. THOMPSON, resides in Delhi; DELLA, unmarried, resides in Walton.

The funeral was from the residence of her son-in-law, C.T. BARNHART, Wednesday, and her remains were interred in the old Brisack burying ground on her father's farm, about two miles from Weed's bridge.

DR. LEWIS

A Promising Life Ended-Contracted Diphtheria While Treating a Patient for the Disease-Buried Among Friends

DR. JAMES CLIFFORD LEWIS, whose serious illness has been announced, died at an early hour Wednesday morning. The cause of his death was diphtheria. This necessitates that his remains be laid to rest in Oil City, hundreds of miles away from his near relatives, and adds to the case a peculiar element of sadness. DR. LEWIS attended several cases of malignant diphtheria in Oil City, and it seems probable that he contracted his fatal illness from the last of these-a case at which he administered chloroform and otherwise assisted in performing a tracheotomy.

DR. LEWIS was born in Hamden, Delaware County, New York, July 21, 1874, and was consequently 21 years old his last birthday.

He spent his early life in Walton, graduating from Walton high school, after finishing a preparatory medical course in 1892. In the fall of '92 he entered the New York Homeopathic Medical college and hospital, graduating from the institution May 2, 1893, being the youngest member of his class. During the summer of 1894 DR. LEWIS' father was construction the Otis elevator in the Catskill mountain and the doctor, anxious to defray his own expenses in part, undertook to do the bookkeeping. In less than two weeks he was laid up with typhoid fever in the Mountain House from which he recovered after a long and serious illness, which it is thought probable may have weakened the action of his heart and caused him to succumb so readily to the ravages of the last attack. After graduating from the medical college, he came to Oil City, as an assistant to DR. E.J. CURRAN, where he spent his brief, yet brilliant medical career.

In his last sickness, he obtained a home with his pastor REV. W.E. MCBRIDE, whose noble generosity is thoroughly appreciated by the bereaved family. He had also the assistance of two trained nurses who could not have worked more earnestly for a brother. Consultations of physicians, the most successful medical treatment, antitoxin, nursing and care-all seemed of no avail, he dying at the time above stated.

DR. LEWIS leaves a father and mother, two brothers, HARRY and THOMAS, and a younger sister, in his immediate family to mourn his loss.

Every one in this community feels the sadness of the case. Floral contributions were numerous yesterday. Though dead, he will live in memory of all as a model of youthful manhood-Oil City Derrick.

One comforting thought in regard to the great bereavement was the fact that he was buried among friends. A kind Christian lady, MRS. HUNT, without any children of her own and her husband being dead, adopted him into her plot as her own, and he was placed by the body of her husband.

Grace B. Gibson

Entered into rest at Delhi, July 30th, GRACE B. GIBSON, aged 18 years. She had been ill nearly six weeks, the most of the time her family having hope and fear on account of unfavorable changes in her condition. One day they thought her better, and perhaps the next some new danger seemed imminent. Medical aid and tender nursing could not avail and on Thursday night at about 11 o'clock, she requested those in the home to retire as she wished to go to sleep. Her mother lay down with her as had been her custom since her illness and both fell asleep. When her mother awoke she was still sleeping and the family could not arouse her. When the physician arrived he did not alarm the family but said she might sleep twenty-four hours but this would be the turning point in her sickness. At noon they saw that she was failing rapidly and again called the physician who did not arrive until after she had passed peacefully into the beautiful beyond in the sleep that knows no awakening on this side of the tomb. Could human love and sympathy have stayed the hand that smote, she would be with us today.
