1204 Issac Ingraham moved his family into the home lately occupied by Levi Lenes, yesterday. Ingraham, Isaac P. (I706)
 
1205 It appears the family did not all travel at once to the United States. It may have been the father sends money back to Ireland as he earns it for the others to travel on after him. That?s a question I can?t answer at this point.

Immigrants escaping the Great Famine too poor to travel any other way were cramped into converted cargo spaces . During the Great Famine of 1845-1852 a million people died, another million immigrated. An Irish Nationalist, John Mitchell, wrote of their plight and spoke much and often about the government differing about feeding the Irish people but, ?they agree most cordially in the policy of taxing, prosecuting and ruining them?. 
Mulholland, Margret (I1261)

1213 It is with pain we record this week the sudden death of another of our worthy citizens - Abram M. Carpenter - the sad event occurring last Sunday afternoon near 1 o'clock. He was attending to his usual work on Tuesday morning, and was taken with severe pains about noon; the illness continued to grow worse, and notwithstanding every effort to relieve him, the disease terminated fatally. Mr. Carpenter was in his 57th year, and an old resident, having come here from New Hampshire about 20 years ago, and engaged in the business of blowing glass, which he followed up to within 8 years, since when he has been a flattener at the Union glass works.

He was a very large framed man, and weighed about 220lbs. Of pleasant, open countenance, and genial, winning ways, he made friends without number, and it can be safely said that there was not one who bore him ill will. He was a good citizen - a plain, pretending, sympathetic man; kind to his family, liberal toward humanity; and the intelligence of his death occasioned deep sadness not only here but wherever he was known. The funeral was very largely attended at the M.E. Church, of which he was a member and class leader, on Tuesday. Rev. J.W. Roberts, formerly pastor of the church, came on here and conducted the services. 
Carpenter, Abram M. (I585)
 
1214 It was in Turkey that Jennings performed the seemingly impossible, heroic act of saving nearly 350,000 refugees. When he arrived, Turkey was fighting a brutal war with Greece for possession of the territory around Smyrna in Asia Minor. As a result of the fighting, large portions of the city were burned to the ground. Hundreds of thousands of people were displaced. With no authority beyond his convictions, Jennings was able to negotiate and secure safe passage from the Turkish armies for a fleet of Greek merchant vessels. Jennings, Asa Kent (I1407)
 
1215 It will be remembered that about two years ago, John Houser was apprehended by a deputy sheriff from Syracuse, and taken to that city, on a warrant sworn out by A. Lowenthal, an extensive dealer in liquors, who charged Houser with obtaining goods under false pretenses, and Houser was subsequently put under bail to answer. But it never came to trail. It was evident there was no bottom to the charge, and the move was made to try and scare a poor man into paying what he unable to at that time. Houser took counsel in the matter, and was advised to bring suit against all the parties who had put him to the trouble. Accordingly, action for $1,500 damages was begun against Lowenthal, Justice-Mullholland, and the deputy. The matter was postponed several times, the defendants not being anxious to come to trial, as their case was no case at all, and they appeared anxious to settle. Finally the lawyers on both sides manged to fix things, and last Thursday the matter was fully settled. They paid all of Houser's costs, his lawyer's foes gave him back the notes amounting to $65, and a receipt in full. The affair probably cost the parties nearly $300. Houser, John (I504)
 
1216 J. Collins and wife, of Reed Tract, were arrested Monday on a peace warrant sworn out by Elivra Stanton, who charged them with threatening her bodily harm.

He came to this country nearly 50 years ago, and after several years residence in Coxsackie, moved on to the Reed Tract, where he cleared up a farm and happily spent the most of his life. He was married at the age of 20 years, from which union there were three children - two boys and one girl, the daughter (Mrs. Sarah Batchelor, of Constantia) alone surviving. He was a member of the M.E. Church for over 80 years. - Funeral services will be held tomorrow at 10 o'clock from the house; 10:30 at M.E. Church. Clark, James H. (I2283)

1234 Jennings had grown up with the rhythms of family, farm, and church, and while the fruits and vegetables of Asia Minor ... were exotic, the texture of life was not so different from the Finger Lakes country.

1237 Jeremiah T. Morenus died at his home in Oneonta, Otsego county, last week from injuries received by the recklessness of two young men who were under the influence of liquor. Deceased was the father of O. Morenus, of this place, and was 30 years old at the time of his death. He has visited Cleveland several times, and was highly respected by all who knew him. The following are some of the circumstances attending his death: He was returning afoot from a little village near Oneonta, when overtaken by two strangers with a team. He was invited to ride, and willingly accepted. As soon as he had taken his seat in the wagon, his companions who apparently very much under the influence of strong drink, spying another team ahead, began to lash their horses and made an effort to pass. The challenge was accepted, and soon both teams were racing recklessly. The old man becoming afraid requested them to let him off. They turned a deaf ear to his entreaties; he even offered them money if they would stop, but they would not. As they reached a point near the old man's home, the driver slackened the pace, but refused to stop. Mr. Morenus attempted to get off, and in doing so he slipped as his feet touched the ground, and falling, the wheel ran over his body. This caused his death. The drunken men who had been instrumental in causing the fatal accident, passed on regardless of the aged victim. The will be punished to the full extent of the law.  Morenus, Rev. Jeremiah Thomas (I1470)

1240 John became foreman at the Eagle Tannery in Cleveland, NY. He and Ellen had eight children but after she died in 1865, John and the children moved to New York Mills, a suburb of Utica, where those who were over the age of ten were working in a large cotton mill by the 1870 census. Alexander, John (I1968)

1242 John Best, a German, by occupation a glass blower, who lived in Durhamville, was missed by his family on Monday night of last week, and a thorough search was instituted by the friends. When it was found that Best was not at the glass works, the belief prevailed that he had fallen in the canal. The search failed to reveal the missing man, and Mrs. Best consulted a Syracuse forutne-teller, who, it is said, told her that her husband had been drown into the canal by a towline Monday night, and that the body was not far from the nearest bridge to Best's house. While she was absent Wednesday the body was found near the spot described by the fortune teller. Best, John (I1526)
 
1243 John came from Northern Ireland, possibly working with his brother William (a tanner at New Baltimore, NY, FAG #49496820) before getting a similar tannery job at Camden, NY in the 1840's Alexander, John (I1968)
 
1244 John Cook, aged 60, an old and respected resident of this place and a veteran of the Civil War, committed suicide by hanging himself yesterday morning. He arose at about 8 o?clock as usual, prepared and ate his breakfast and after calling his daughter and giving her a cup of coffee, left the house and was not seen again. His son-in-law, Joseph Quigg, having occasion to visit the barn about 8 o?clock, was horrified at finding him hanging to a post by a small strap.

Coroner W.G. Babcock was summoned and after an examination pronounced an inquest unnecessary. The cause was probably despondency.
