ARTHUR, Unknown Obituary

A Youthful Suicide – Last Wednesday, Mr. Alfred Arthur, of Glensdale, sent his son – a lad some fourteen years of age – with a team and cultivator to work a piece of ground. In the course of the day another boy joined him, and the two seated themselves upon the cultivator and drove the horses at an unusually rapid pace for the remainder of the day, consequently the team became over-heated, and while in this condition they were allowed by the boys to drink their fill of cold water while on the way home. The next morning the horses were found unfit for use, being stiffened and foundered, upon which Mr. Arthur severely reprimanded his son for his cruelty and heedlessness, and nothing further was thought of the matter. In the afternoon, the report of a gun drew attention to barn, whence the sound proceeded, and where a shocking spectacle was discovered. The son of Mr. Arthur was there found lying on his back, dead, with one foot denuded of its boot and stocking. A rifle lay across his breast with its muzzle against the temple of the unfortunate youth whose blood and brains were yet oozing from a frightful wound in the side of his head opposite where the charge from the gun had entered – the skull bones being shattered to fragments, were still held together in a shapeless mass by skin. He evidently drew the trigger with is large toe. No cause, except of chagrin and anger, can be as signed for this unfortunate act. A Coroner and jury were soon after convened, who rendered a verdict of “suicide by shooting,” in accordance with the above stated facts.

BUDD, WM. C. Obituary, Oct. 29, 1862

We extract the following from the Carthage Republican of last week: Wm. C. Budd, son of Dr. B. S. Budd of Constableville, Lewis county, and formerly of this place, was killed in Mississippi on the 31st of August, 1862. the circumstances relating to his death are as follows:

Company H, of the 11th Iowa Infantry were detailed to guard a wagon train from Bolivar to Jackson. They arrested with the train safe and sound at Jackson, and on their return to Bolivar, fell into an ambuscade of the enemy. The first intimation they had of the proximity of the enemy, was a volley of musketry from a thicket they were passing, poured into their midst, but luckily, not killing a man. Sergeant Budd gave the command to charge, when the Rebels poured another volley of bullets into them, and he felt,encouraging on his men, pierced by four balls. The first striking him over the left eye, the second striking him in the side and going through the lungs, and the other two striking him, one in the arm and the other in the leg. The enemy then sallied forth from the thicket, and the company fell back some two miles, where they received reinforcements – So hasty was their retreat that they had no time to recover his body. They again advanced, and finding nothing of the body, made inquires in the neighborhood, andfound that he had been decently interred in a Churchyard near by. The Iowa papers, in speaking of the engagement, remark as follows:

“It was in this engagement that Sergeant Wm. C. Budd fell. He was a high souled man, a brave man, and esteemed by all who knew him, as an honest man. He was promoted for his gallantry at Pittsburgh Landing, from a private to a Sergeant. In his death the country has lost a true patriot and a man, although a common officer, long to be remembered as one who died for his country's flag, whose blessings he had enjoyed for thirty-four years.”

He has a brother – Lieut. Geo. W. Budd, in the 2d Iowa Cavalry, and had another brother, Chas. B. Budd, who was a member of the 57th N.Y., but was discharged last spring, for disability resulting from a fall, and is now stopping in this village.

Died, In Rutland, Jefferson county, at the house of his daughter, Mrs. E. B. Dutton, Aug. 31st, 1862 Dr. David Perry, formerly of Lowville – aged 87 years.

From Hough's History of Lewis County, we obtain some facts in regard to his long and useful life. He was born in Princeton, Mass. Sept. 13th, 1775, studied medicine with Dr. Westel Willoughby of Newport, N.Y., and settled in Denmark, Aug. 1806. In 1808, he married Miss Nancy Hulburt of Holland Patent, who died Nov. 1812. In April 1809, he settled in Lowville (the first two years in company with Dr. Samuel Allen) continued in the practice of medicine until Nov. 1858, when in censequence of aparalytic attack, he was deprived of further means of usefulness in the profession in which he had been emineatly successful. He removed to Rutland about our years since, where he remained until his death. His funeral services were held in Lowville, where he rests with many who were his friends and associates for many years. Dr. Perry was a man of sound judgment, and enjoyed an extended reputation as a safe and intelligent Physician, and when compelled by failing health to relinquish his profession,this community in which he had been so actively engaged for a half century, felt that his loss was indeed a painful one, and there are many here who now mourn the death of one who was their firm and ardent friend. He leaves but on daughter, Mrs. Dutton, to whose quiet home he retired when no longer able to engage in active life, and in whose family, affectionate hearts ministered to all his wants, and made his latter years so quiet and peaceful.
