This Day in Bovina for November 2018

Four years ago today, on November 1, 2014, these five Bovinians were part of a group visiting Scotland. Here are Pat Miele, Peg Hilson, Jim Hilson, Jean Parsons Merenberg and Ray LaFever at the Scottish Borders Archives in Hawick. A number of early Bovina settlers came from the Scottish Borders, including Francis Coulter and John "Old Jock" Hilson. 

Evan Russell was photographed by Bob Wyer in October 1950. Evan was born in Bovina in 1923, the son of Alfred and Katherine (Oliver) Russell. He grew up in Bovina and in 1944 enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving in the Pacific theatre in World War II. He married in Ella Shaver and was living in Kirkwood in Broome County at the time of his death in 1981. Photo courtesy of the Delaware County Historical Association. 

115 years ago today, on November 3, 1903, as later reported in the Andes Recorder, a "meeting against secret societies" took place in the Covenanter church in Bovina (the church was located where the fire hall now sits). One of the speakers spoke against the Grand Army of the Republic (the GAR), the Civil War veterans group. The speaker, who claimed to be a Civil War veteran, said "he would not belong to such an order." The Recorder went on to say "we don't want such a man in our order, so he need not bother himself about it. The order is better without such as he."

120 years ago today, the November 4, 1898 Bovina column of the Andes Recorder noted that "out of seventeen cows which John M. Miller has had come in this fall, eight have had milk fever, and four have died." Miller's farm was on Pink Street, the farm later known as Suits Us Farm.

116 years ago today, on November 5, 1902, the family of E.T. Gerry, after spending several weeks at their summer home at Lake Delaware, returned to their home in New York City.

119 years ago today, on November 6, 1899, as later reported in the Bovina column of the Andes Recorder, "Merritt Reynolds was in town….selling patent neck yokes."

168 years ago today, on November 7, 1850, William D. Thompson, son of David Thompson and Jennette Hume, married Agnes Murray, the daughter of John Murray and Jennet Scott. They would have 4 children, but only one would survive to adulthood, William Henry Thompson. William and Agnes would be married over 51 years. William died in 1902, Agnes three years later.

123 years ago today, the Andes Recorder in its November 8, 1895 edition reported that "There is every prospect of a telephone to the upper part of the town, with an instrument at J.E. Hastings, Johnson Brothers, Post office, Mrs. Hewitt's, McFarland Brothers, A.F. Maynard's and at W.B. Thomson's."

128 years ago today, the November 9, 1894 Bovina column of the Andes Recorder reported that "Gossips say there is to be a case of matrimony on Pink street soon." No further information appears in subsequent papers to identify this couple. There were two couples married in Bovina not long after this notice. Hope Chamberlain married Jennie Mabon on November 28, 1894, but the Mabons lived in Lake Delaware (and I'm not sure from where Chamberlain came). On December 5, 1894, Andrew C. Seacord married Elizabeth Loughran. This may be the couple mentioned in the gossip, but we can't be sure. The gossip also could have been totally wrong.

Gladys Cairns was photographed by Bob Wyer in November 1942. He took a portrait of her sister Louise in January 1945. They were the daughters of James and Mae (Fisher) Cairns. Gladys was born in 1924, Louise a year later. They both were born in Andes. Gladys married Salvatore Platania in 1943 and was widowed in 2011. Louise was married twice. She married Willard Chase, who died in 1973. She later married Maurice Winner. Louise died in 2013 at the age of 88. Louise and Gladys also had a sister, Dawn, and two brothers, Walter and Leonard. 

Sixty-six years ago today, on November 11, 1952, the Bovina Home Bureau held the second meeting on "Self-Help in Case of Accidents." A third meeting was scheduled at the community hall for November 25.

157 years ago today, November 12, 1861, Rachel Atkin died. We don't know much about her ancestry other than that her maiden name was Miller. She married Charles Atkin and they had seven children. She was 58 at her death.

115 years ago today, on November 13, 1903, as later reported in the Andes Recorder Bovina column, "….some miscreant broke into William Crosier’s barn and stole some furs, oats, etc.  Some others think they had a visit from them."

109 years ago today, on Sunday, November 14, 1909, the pastors of the Bovina United Presbyterian, Reformed Presbyterian and Methodist churches all preached sermons against dancing.

Oed Esketh and his first wife Ruth were photographed by Bob Wyer  in December 1942. He was born in Norway in 1916. He was a World War II veteran, serving in the US Army in Europe. He served in the Air Force for many years. He and his second wife, Marie both died in 2005. She died in February and Ode died from a brain injury after a fall in June. Photo courtesy of the Delaware County Historical Association. 

Ninety-seven years ago today, on November 16, 1921, Thomas C. Strangeway submitted this statement of expenses as a candidate for town supervisor (he won and served one term). 

Margaret Sanderson Doig died 146 years ago today on November 17, 1872 of typhoid fever.  Born in Washington County, NY in 1807, she was the daughter of Patrick Sanderson and Nancy Hodge.  She was married Andrew Doig and would have nine children.  Andrew died in 1865.

Eighty-two years ago today, on November 18, 1936, Lester Foreman was selected to become superintendent of schools in Rochester.  Forman was hired to fill the unexpired term of the previous superintendent, who had passed away.  Foreman was 32 years old and a native of Bovina.  Born in Bovina in 1904, he was the son of Robert Foreman and Dora Alice Boggs.  He graduated Cornell in 1926 and taught in the Rochester area until 1931 when he became an agriculture teacher in the Williamson High School.  Foreman died in Pittsford, NY, outside of Rochester, in 1969.

121 years ago this evening, on November 19, 1897, as later reported in the Bovina Column of the Andes Recorder, Bovina saw two weddings barely a half hour apart. Both ceremonies were performed by the same clergyman, W.L.C. Samson. The paper noted that "it made him hustle and he had to miss one wedding feast." The first wedding was that of Sylvan LaFever and Ella Burns, who were married at the bride's home. Ella was the daughter of Alexander and Nancy Burns. Sylvan and Ella would have three children: Benson, born 1900; Clarence, born 1902 and Ruth, born 1904. Ruth died in 1906 and Ella died in 1908 near Oneida Lake. The same evening of the LaFever/Burns wedding, William T. Miller was married to Mary Boggs. William was the son of Michael Miller and Sally McCune Miller; Mary was the daughter of Thomas Boggs and Jane Archibald Boggs. They would be married until Mary's death in 1926 and would have no children. Ironically, both grooms died in June 1940.

160 years ago today, on November 20, 1858, Maggie Thomson was born, the last of the eight children of John Thomson and Helen Armstrong. She was slated to have a short life, dying in February of 1867 at the age of 8.

William David Thomson (or Thompson, the records vary) was born 150 years ago today on November 21, 1868. He was the son of David Low Thompson and Eliza Murray.  He died in 1958 when he was 89 years old and is buried in Bovina.

118 years ago today, as later reported in the Andes Recorder, "the old soldiers were invited to John P. Dennis' [on November 22, 1900], and spent an enjoyable evening together.  The inner man was well cared for and an excellent repast served." Old soldiers was a term for Civil War veterans.

122 years ago today, November 23, 1896, as later reported in the Bovina column of the Andes Recorder, noted orator Colonel H.W.J. Ham gave the first lecture in the fall lecture course in Bovina. "The speaker took for his subject, 'The Snollygoster in Politics' and his lecture far exceeded the expectations of the audience.  It contained enough humor to keep his hearers in the best of spirits, but the undercurrent of solid argument for the uplifting of the plane of American citizenship and fostering a patriotic sentiment that will drive out of politics the self-seeking, unprincipled place hugger – the snollygosters – who are feeding on the public and degrading the institutions of the land, made the thoughtful ponder on his words.  He closed with a touching picture of the need now so great in the country of the proper training of the young, and dwelt on the importance of surrounding the young man’s life with pictures of honor and faith."

Ninety years ago today, November 24, 1928, an accident took place in Bovina, later reported in the Andes Recorder:  "Hugh McPherson and Ledger Myers had a narrow escape Saturday night in an auto accident.  The young men had been at Henry Monroe's during the day cutting wood and coming home the lights on the car were poor.  When just below the intersection of the uptown and Coulter Brook roads a car left standing in the road without lights by the mechanic at Kaufman's garage in front of the LaFever house, where he lives, loomed up out of the darkness and there was a crash. McPherson who was driving escaped injury.  Myers was hurled against the windshield and it was shattered. Fortunately he was not thrown against the jagged edges of the glass and escaped with only a few minor cuts.  Their car was quite badly damaged." The LaFever house mentioned likely is the home of Leonard and Ann Cairns, owned at that time by my grandmother, Anna Bell LaFever. It was a couple of doors away from mine. Similar such accidents would happen at least twice during my childhood.

John and Elizabeth Burns had these portraits taken by Bob Wyer in December 1946. They were the parents of Agnes V. Burns and Mary Burns Lounsbury. John Sinclair Burns was born in 1888, the son of Alexander Burns and Nancy Miller Burns. He married Elizabeth Jane Carnright in 1913. Elizabeth died in 1952. John survived her by three years, dying in 1955. Photos courtesy of the Delaware County Historical Association. 

Ninety-seven years ago today, on November 26, 1921, the Methodist Church and parsonage in Bovina Center were sold.  The parsonage, now the Chuck McIntosh home, was sold to Gay Hafele for $1,025.  The church was bought by William Archibald for $775.  The church was demolished in 1926 and Archibald built a house in its place, until recently owned by Gert Hall.

Nineteen years ago today, on November 27, 1999, Edwin Milton Doig passed away. Born in 1905, Ed was the son of Milton and Jennie Thomson Doig. He married Gladys Biggar and had three children. Ed was in the army from 1926-29 and farmed much of his life on Pink Street.

116 years ago today, November 28, 1902, the Bovina column of the Andes Recorder reported that "Through the kindness of E.T. Gerry the five-year-old child of Fred Minister, who lives in the John R. Hoy tenement house, will soon be taken to New York for treatment. The child is afflicted with knock knees."

141 years ago today, in the Bovina News from the November 29, 1877 Andes Recorder appeared the following plea: "What has befallen the once agitated project of connecting us with the Andes and Delhi Telegraph Line? If only the proper effort were made this would easily be accomplished. The work should be done at once."

Ninety-nine years ago today, November 30, 1919, as later reported in the Bovina column of the Andes Recorder, "Dr. Norris B. Whitcomb with his wife and little daughter, who left here to become a medical missionary in Egypt, arrived safely at Naples, Italy." Whitcomb would stay in Egypt until his death in 1935 from septicemia. He is buried in Egypt.

Grandma's First Husband - "...your loving husband has been called home."

As reported in last month's blog entry, my grandmother, Anna Bell Barnhart, lost her first husband in the First World War. It was a month before she got the word of his death. She received numerous expressions of sympathy after the death of her husband. Not just cards either, but letters.  Probably the very first letter was written the day she got the news.  It came from her future brother-in-law, James Boggs, dated November 15, 1918. 

Dear Friend Annabell;
I have just heard tonight of the news you have received that your loving husband has been called home.  My heart goes out to you in love and sympathy in this time of sorrow and bereavement.  I know you will be trusting in Our Heavenly Father who gave us our loved ones and also called them home.  Gods ways are not our ways, but we must say in all things “Thy will not mine be done.”
There is not much that I can say to comfort you.  I know you will see many lonely weeks and months and I know how much a little human sympathy means in a time like this.  I will remember you often in prayer and ask Him that He, who doeth all things well, will give you strength to bear it and that he will find up your broken heart with His unfailing love.  I know it will be well with James, he was always so kind and noble and true to everything on the side or right.  Give my sympathy to James’ mother when you see her and tell her for me that he was a clean and noble christian boy. 
Accept again my heartfelt sympathy for yourself and all your loved ones and may God bless and keep you in His love.
Sincerely your friend, James A. Boggs

Some of the letters she received were briefer than others.  Another future in-law, Viola Russell, sent a short note on November 22 expressing her sympathy.  Another fairly brief note came from Mary Oliver of Andes, dated November 18.  In it, she says that she “can’t helping think that you may hear good news yet.” 

A longer note was written November 22 came from Mrs. J.A. Irvine.  Her husband had committed suicide January 1, 1918:

My Dear Annabell
I wish to express to you our sincere sympathy in you[r] sorrow, but the Good Lord knows best his ways are not our ways.  Remember it was Jesus who said “Blessed are they that mourn for they shall be Comforted” and I for one know he is the only one to go to in time of trouble.  His grace is Sufficient.  Now Annabell when we get down in our new home you and Edith must come and see us.  May the good Lord comfort you and give you strength to bear your great sorrow.
Mrs. J.A. Irvine and family

A letter came from Arena with a November 26 postmark from her friend Blanche.  It has a different tone from some of the letters she received:

My Dear Old galie;
I am now writing you and telling you how my kind feelings to out for you dear in all your trubles as I saw by the paper you[r] brave husband was one of the unfortunate ones.  We are all so happy that it is over.  Now I have one soldier bro and one sailor bro one has been away from over a year and I never saw him.  We hear from them real often.  How are all of you people?  Is Edith married yet? & how about Ralph?  I must come up and stay long enough to visit all of my old friends again.  I am still the same Blanche.  Just as much as ever.  Wish I could see you to sympathize and cheer you are you with your mother’s now? How is Will’s people? Also Johns?  I hear that Cecil Russell has the store now.  How is his wife?
Write when you feel like it and tell me all the news.  Love Blanche 

On Sunday, November 24, the Bovina U.P. Church held a memorial service for James, joined by the Andes Presbyterian Church. 

Several local newspapers reported on James' death.

November 2018 - 100 Years Ago "in That Thriving Town"

Bovina 100 years ago this month was dealing with the influenza epidemic, celebrating the end of the First World War and mourning a few days later the loss in the war of James Calhoun. 

November 1, 1918
·   There are no new cases of influenza reported.
·   It is reported that the Amos farm in southern Bovina, has been purchased by the Gerrys.
·   Dr. and Mrs. N.B. Whitcomb are now considered out of danger and we hope to see them around as usual.
·   The questionnaires for the selected men are now being made received and filled.  Some of the first registrants were called to Delhi for examination Thursday.
·   The first death in town from the prevailing influenza epidemic occurred on Sabbath, October 20, when Mrs. Loron Maxim, passed away at her home on the Hewitt farm up-town.  The remains were taken to Hardenburgh, Ulster couty, their former home, for interment.

November 8, 1918

·   T.W. Miller has secured Edward Lamb to work on his farm on Miller avenue, and he moved this week.

Bramley Mt. Man Arrested - Muller Tells U.S. Commissioner of Lost Contracts

Jean Muller, of Bramley Mt., the story of whose arrest appears in the Recorder last week, was arraigned before United States Commissioner O’Neil at Binghamton on Monday, spring a surprise upon the court when he claimed to have lost two contracts, one by which the United States government owes him $40,000 and the other one by which the English government owes him $30,000, for valuable patents, and expert work done by him in developing warplanes. 

Muller is apparently a Swiss, who speaks German, and he was arrested at the request of the bureau of investigation, and it developed that he had only recently returned from France, and it was suspected that his recent trip to Europe means that he may also have gone to German quarters.  But up to the present time the chief thing materializing against him is that he failed to file his questionnaire. 

He told this story as to how he lost the contracts he had entered into with the United States and English governments: When he went away he had the needed passports, but somewhere they got lost and he had trouble getting new passports.  Accordingly, when he came back to Canada, he found it necessary to come right over the line when no one was looking.  Arrived on this side, he telegraphed back for the bag containing his private papers, and this bag was sent on to him without the valuable papers in question.  This happened right across from Lucy’s Point, on the Canadian order, and a quizzing of the United States and English authorities at Lucy’s Point fails to develop anything as to the whereabouts of the papers. 

November 15, 1918
·   Everybody rejoicing over the end of the war.
·   Bovina people are glad that Dr. N. B. Whitcomb will remain in town.
·   Robert G. Thomson, manager of the Dry Milk Company, was at Andes on business errands Thursday.
·   The sixth and seventh grades and the students taking high school work in the village school enjoyed a party Tuesday evening at the home of their teacher, Rev. Thos E. Graham.
·   Andrew T. Doig, who for a number of years has conducted a general merchandise business in the Thos E. Hastings store, has sold his business to Cecil Russell, who will take over the business January 1.

November 22, 1918
·   Wilber Archibald and Wilson Monroe have been home on furloughs.
·   Memorial services will be held at the U.P. church on Sabbath for James D. Calhoun.
·   Hilson Brothers are erecting a large concrete garage.  It is 48 feet long and constructed of concrete blocks.  Mr. Tweedie, of Walton, is boss on the job.
·   John Elliott has sold his house and lot in Bovina Center to Mrs. John A. Irvine.  Consideration $4,200, Mr. Elliott expects to move to the Thomas Miller house.
·   Mrs. John A. Irvine has sold her farm, the David Black place, up Coulter Brook, to Willis M. Kennedy, of Canada, and the new owner has taken possession.  The price paid was $20,000.

November 29, 1918
·   Ellsworth Tuttle had two cows die last week.
·   James Hilson was at Walton on Monday after a truck load of concrete blocks.
·   The Dry Milk company moved a large boiler from their plant here to Harpersfield.  The boiler weighs over four tons and three teams were used to haul it.
·   Miss Angelica L. Gerry has presented the St. James Chapel at Lake Delaware with a five branch candelabras, in memory of the late Rev. William A. Long.
·   The U.P church was filled to overflowing on Sabbath at the memorial services for Sergeant James D. Calhoun.  Rev. G.A. Forbs preached the sermon.  A delegation of Sheldon Rifles from Delhi were present.
·   Floyd, the 4-year old son of John R. Aitkins, was quite severely bitten by Harvey Hafele’s dog.  The child was playing with the Hafele children and they had been driving the dog which to escape further rough handling went under the porch.  Floyd went in after it with the result that he was severely chewed.  One ear was torn, one tooth narrowly missed the eye and a gash along the head above the ear required seven stitches to close it.

Women Vote in Bovina

On November 6, 1917, the efforts to extend the right to vote to all New York citizens was successful. Not only did it carry state-wide, but it won in Delaware County, 5546 for vs. 4443 against. The county ranked about in the middle of how the counties voted in New York. And Bovina voted in support – 97 for and 84 against.

The first opportunity for women to vote in Bovina came on September 3 in the primary. I’ve tried to figure out who the first woman to vote in Bovina was, but given there were three party primaries, we can’t be sure who that was. There was only one woman voting as a Democrat, Florence Henry. The Republican and Prohibition parties had considerably more people voting. Margaret Boggs was the first woman to vote in the Prohibition primary, being the sixth voter. Margaret Archibald was the first Republican female vote, being the fifteenth Republican voter.

In the general election on November 5, 1918, 98 of the 212 women registered in Bovina voted (out of 284 total voters), and we do know who the first woman to vote in Bovina was – Margaret T. Gladstone. Born Margaret Ana Thompson in Bovina, she was the daughter of James and Jennett Thompson. She married Robert R. Gladstone in 1868. They lived for a number of years in Andes but in 1915, sold their home there and took rooms in Jennie Miller’s home in the Bovina Center hamlet. This is where they were living when Margaret (and her husband) voted in the general election in 1918. They later bought a home in Bovina and both died there. Robert died in 1925, Margaret in 1928. Both are buried in Bovina.

The last woman to vote in Bovina in the first general election open to women in New York was Mina (pronounced 'minee') Wilson. In 1921, she became the first woman in Bovina to be elected to office. See the November 11, 2013 entry in this blog for more about Mina (
