Simpson, Frederick G. - 1895

Last Thursday morning David Yates, of Red Bank, died very suddenly.  He was one of the few survivors of Co. E, 10th Regt. P.R.C.  Thus the old veterans of ’61 are dropping out.  Soon there will be none left to grieve the hearts if of the say at home rangers or the aprionstring <sic> guards by getting pensions.

– Frederick G. Simpson, a young man of sterling habits and character, who lives at Van Buren, midway between here and Redbank, and who had passed his twenty-first birthday last Tuesday, had helped dig the grave for Mr. Yates at Watersonville cemetery on Friday and had gone home to supper, after which he took his skates and started down the ice intending to go to Mr. Yates’ wake.

It was just about dark and there was an air hole in the ice about a quarter mile below his home, and as he did not put in an appearance at the wake nor return home at night, the neighborhood was aroused and search made for him.  His lifeless body was found a few feet below the lower end of the air hole with only one skate on.  One of his skates was found near the upper end of the hole.  The hole was about 20 or 25 feet long and 8 to 10 feet wide.  His untimely death has cast a gloom over the entire neighborhood.

He was buried at Brady’s Bend cemetery Monday, according to the rites of the Jr. O.U.A.M., of which he was a member.

Henderson, Theodore (Rev.) - 1895

Rev. Theodore Henderson, a well known retired Baptist minister, died at his home in Brookville, at an early hour on last Thursday, after a protracted illness caused by wounds received while in the army.  He was for eleven years the faithful and efficient pastor of the Brookville Baptist church, which was built and dedicated during his pastorate.

For several years past, Rev. Henderson has been laid aside from active pastoral work.  He was a cheerful, faithful soldier on the field of battle as well as in the Master’s service, and his funeral, conducted in the Baptist church on Thursday evening by the Brookville Ministerial Association, who were assisted by the Hon. W. P. Jenks and Rev. L. J. Shoemaker and Prof. Ballentine, of Clarion, were very impressive, all the speakers commending the life of the deceased as one specially worthy of imitation.

The G.A.R. post of Brookville also attended the funeral in a body and on Friday morning a detachment of old comrades attended the corps [sic] to Blairsville, Pa., where the remains were laid to rest.  A widow and one daughter are left to mourn their loss in which they have the condolence of a large circle of friends.
