2107 William Sanders died Tuesday morning last, at half-past 4 o'clock. His death was not unexpected, as he had been failing steadily for several months. Consumption had finally wasted him away to a mere shadow. In his death we lost one the very oldest and most prominent of our residents, one identified with the early history of the place.

Deceased was born in the town of Winfield, Herkimer Co., this state, Feb. 15th, 1810, which would make his age 71 years, 1 month and 27 days. He came of a family of 11 children, and his father died when he was but 4 years old. About the age of 20, he with his brother Ebenezer started from their mother's home, on horseback, and brought up at Amboy Centre. They engaged in the lumber business, and also built a hotel and saw-mill. There he was married to Miss Anna Morey, of this village. During his residence there, he was elected justice of the peace, supervisor, and held other major positions. After he had been there about 5 years, his mill, with a large quantity of lumber of burned and he lost nearly everything. His brother then offered to support the family if William would study law, which he determined to do, and entered the office of attorney Robinson at Mexico. He progressed rapidly, and was admitted to one bar about 1846 in the city of Oswego.

He came to Cleveland in 1849 and rented a small building - a 'smoke house' it was generally dubbed - just across from where the Marble Hotel stood. Mr. Sanders used to tell with relish of his first suit, his client being Freeman Vandyke, who brought an action against Mr. Phillips. Sam made a practice of turning his cattle into Vandyke's premises at night while Vandyke was boating. Sanders agreed to try the case for $1.50. It was a jury trial, and they brought in a verdict in favor of Vandyke, and also allowed Sanders $3 for counsel fees in settling up with Vandyke, Sanders told him that the jury had showed him $3 extra for counsel fee; but Vandyke said: 'You agreed to do it for $1.50; a bargain's a bargain, and I won't give no more.'

Besides the practice of his profession, he had a stage line running to McConnelsville. Dick Hartley drove his stage several years. He also kept for a short time a temperance hotel in the house now occupied by Dr. Allen.

His wife died in 1861, and his son Lucien, an able and worthy young man, university liked, died two years later, at the age of 3?.

In 1862, he married to M. Harriet Arey of Philadelphia, an exceptional lady, who survives him, and by whom he has had 8 children, six of them living, 4 girls and 2 boys, their ages ranging from 5 to 11 years.

Mr. Sanders was instrumental in securing the charter of this village, drawing the charter and by-laws himself. He was the first president of the village.

In 1861, he secured control of the Cleveland glass works, and operated them for three years. At the end of that time he sold out to Caswell & Getman, and moved to Syracuse. When he left here it is said he was worth $25,000. At Syracuse he continued the practice of law, and was also interested in the glassworks there, and later, in the Covington glass works. In this last venture he was unsuccessful, and with the depreciation of real estate in Syracuse and unfortunate investments, he lost everything.

He returned here in the fall of 1879. His business prospects were good, but his health steadily declined til his death.

His loss is sincerely regretted, by the Bar, of which he was an active and respected member, and by numerous friends at home and abroad and general sympathy is extended to be bereaved many.

The ritual services were held Thursday afternoon at 3 o'clock, Rev. McCarthy, of the Presbyterian Church, officiating.

2110 William Woodin met with a sad loss Tuesday, in the death of his wife, who was taken suddenly ill the Saturday previous, though she had been subject to attacks of sickness at intervals for a long time. Deceased was in her 30th year of age; and her life though aggravated with afflictions, that would have utterly prostrated many another, was spent in utility and usefulness chiefly amid the cares and responsibilities of the home circle, though not wholly for her willing hear and ready hand found opportunities of relieving distress and doing good in many ways. She leaves, beside her husband; two children - a boy and girl - the little ones too young to realize their great loss. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. Daniel Marvin, Jr., Thursday afternoon at the house, a large number attending.

Mr. Woodin desires to deeply thank all the friends who so kindly aided in various ways during bereavement.
