A sad and startling case of suicide occurred on Monday afternoon, in which a woman shot herself. Her name was Elizabeth Ridley, wife of Robert Ridley, living in the town of Waterloo, Seneca county, three and a half miles north of Geneva. The woman was partially or wholly insane; and last Monday, at 4 p.m., having herself loaded a shot gun, deliberately placed herself at the muzzle, and taking a stick, pushed the trigger, which discharged the contents of the gun into her body. It does not appear that any circumstances, except that grew out of her insanity, induced the act, which was carried into effect with a cool determination and calculation scarcely ever paralleled. Mrs. Ridley was 63 years of age.From Geneva Gazette 20 October 1876
Suicide in the Town of Waterloo - On Monday last Mrs. Elizabeth Ridley, wife of an aged farmer residing in the northwest part of Waterloo township, committed suicide by shooting herself in the breast with a gun loaded with shot. Mrs. Ridley first showed derangement of mind many years ago, before she emigrated from England to this country. This was in 1845. But after arriving in America, it was tho't she had become permanently restored. Last November she had a severe attack of erysipelas, which again affected her reason, and from which she has never fully recovered, so that it was deemed necessary to keep her under constant surveillance. Last Monday her husband went down into his cornfield, leaving a young grand-daughter as the only occupant of the house besides the insane woman. With the cunning of insanity bent upon a fixed purpose, Mrs. Ridley sent the little girl to the orchard for some apples. After performing her errand she returned and discovered her grandmother through a window in possession of a gun. By this time Mr. Ridley had returned to the barn, to whom the little girl hastily ran and communicated the startling fact, but too late, alas, to avert the intended, determined act of self-destruction.When the alarmed husband got to the house and entered it, he found his consort prostrate on the floor, gasping in the last agonies of death, with a fatal gunshot wound in her breast as above described. She had herself loaded the gun, loosened her clothing ever to her last under-garment, and evidently placed the muzzle of the loaded weapon directly to her naked breast. A post mortem examination revealed the fact that two or three shots entered the heart. An inquest was held by Coroner Welles of Seneca county and a jury, whose verdict was suicide while suffering from insanity. Deceased had borne to her husband ten children, all of whom are living and married -- one of whom is the wife of our well-known friend and patron, Thomas Holland of Phelps. Mrs. Ridley was aged 60 years. We are indebted to Mr. Holland for the facts embodied above.New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957

MacPhail, pastor of the First Presbyterian Church, will officiate. Burial will be in Soule Cemetery. Mr. Dewdney, who was 93 years old and one of Auburn's oldest residents, passed away at his home in Fulton Street on Wednesday evening. For years the deceased was a well-known business man, and when active, took keen interest in the affairs of the community. The deceased had been in failing health since last Fall, but not until a month ago was he confined to his bed. Advanced age and general breaking down were the causes of his death. Mr. Dewdney's life was prolonged many years by his unusual vitality.From Auburn Semi-Weekly Journal 23 March 1906
He was born in Reiget, England, December 20, 1830. In England, he married Esther Ridley and they came to the United States on their wedding trip. For a time Mr. and Mrs. Dewdney lived in Ledyard, then Seneca Falls, and from there moving to the state of Ohio. They resided in sections of Indiana and Missouri after leaving Ohio. They came to Auburn and settled in 1876. By trade, Mr. Dewdney was a blacksmith, having worked in some of the leading shops in the locality during his time. He entered the grocery business in 1888 with his son, Alpha L. Dewdney. Their establishment was located in North Street.
The deceased gave up active business in 1914. However, up until a few weeks ago, despite his advanced age, he was frequently found at his son's office. Mr. Dewdney, during his late years, took real pleasure in caring for the lawn and surroundings of his home in Fulton Street. He was warmly greeted by scores of friends every day and was particularly loved by the younger generation for he was very fond of children.
Mr. Dewdney, who was one of the oldest Masons in New York State, was a member of St. Paul's Lodge, No. 124, F. & A. M. He also belonged to the Masonic Veterans Association. Mr. Dewdney was for many years an elder of the First Presbyterian Church, and was active in all of the many affairs of the church. Besides his son, Alpha L. Dewdney, he is survived by one grandson, C. A. Howland.
Scipioville, March 21 - Remains of Mrs. Wm. Dewdney of Auburn, who passed away in Washington at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Horace Howland, on Friday morning, were brought here for burial in Evergreen cemetery Tuesday. She was a sister of the late Mrs. George Pattington.MISCELLANEOUS:
Tomorrow, December 20, William Dewdney will celebrate his 91st birthday. Besides being numbered among the city's oldest residents, he is also one of the oldest Masons in Cayuga Co. having joined the order in 1861 in Chillicothe, Ohio. Hale and hearty and in full possesion of his faculties, Mr. Dewdney bears his advanced years with remarkable alertness and vigor. He is quite active as he was a quarter century ago, walking downtown daily and attending church every Sunday. He still takes a keen interest in the affairs about him and is able to converse on current happenings with greater familiarity than is evinced by many in the prime of life.3. Jane born 10 July 1834; died 28 Oct 1903 Ledyard NY; married ca 1860 George Mark Pattington born 19 Aug 1834 Cayuga Co. NY; died 20 May 1917 Ledyard NY. Both are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Ledyard.
Mr. Dewdney was born December 20, 1830, at Reygate, England, between the cities of London and Brighton and came to America in 1852, arriving first at the Town of Owego by way of the Erie railroad which was then in its infancy. His ultimate destination was Levanna which he reached by walking from Owego to Ithaca and then taking a boat up Cayuga Lake. He lived for a time at Levanna and later at Venice Center. Then he went West and at the outbreak of the civil war in 1861, was foreman of the repair shops at Chillicothe, Ohio, a railroad running between Cincinnati and Marietta.
Later he migrated further West, settling first at Indianapolis and then at Greenville, Mo., where he lived near the home of the celebrated desperadoes, Jesse and Frank James. Mr. Dewdney knew both of these picturesque characters of the old west very well from their frequent visits to the then rough fronier settlement of Greenville. In 1876 he came back to Auburn to take up his permanent residence. During the 45 years that have elapsed since that time, Mr. Dewdney has watched the city grow from its glorified village stage to its present size.
The old gentleman, from his constant activity in the business circles of the city for the past two score years, has acquired perhaps a wider circle of friends and acquaintances than any of the old residents of Auburn can boast. All of them will join in wishing best birthday wishes and many happy returns of the day tomorrow.

Henry Manwaring, who is engaged in gardening in Wakarusa Township, Douglas County, was born in England, February 28, 1839. His father died before he was born and his mother when he was three years of age. When eleven years of age he went to make a home with an uncle, whom he accompanied to America two years later, taking passage on the "Hibernia", which anchored in New York after a voyage of five weeks and three days. For nineteen years he made his home in New York state, being engaged in agricultural pursuits, mixed gardening and farming in Seneca County. In the spring of 1871 he and his uncle came together to Kansas and purchased one hundred and sixty acres where he now resides, about four miles west of Lawrence on the old California road. The land had been ploughed, the east part of the house and the stone portion of the barn erected, but no other improvements had been made. Up to the Spring of 1883 he operated the land in partnership with his uncle, but the latter died at that time, since which our subject has been alone. He has erected a large greenhouse, enlarged the house and barn, and built up a good business as a market gardener, in addition to which he devotes some attention to general farming. The products of his garden he sells principally to dealers and shippers, thus avoiding the additional work caused by making the shipments himself. Besides his work as a gardener, Mr. Manwaring has been connected with the Douglas County Creamery, of which he was one of the incorporators. He was for two years president of the company and for four years a director. He has always believed in the principles advocated by Abraham Lincoln, but the Republican party he believes has drifted somewhat from its original moorings, and he therefor allies himself with the Populists. He is interested in political matters, but is not an office seeker. In religion he is an Episcopalian. It is said of him by his associates that no one better exemplifies the principles of Christianity than he. While he is modest and retiring, saying nothing in regard to his kind acts, yet his life has been full of generous deeds and helpful words.+8. (*) Reuben born 9 Jan 1847 England; died 9 Oct 1899; married Sarah Louise Northam born 26 Dec 1849 Waterloo NY; died 21 March 1929 Waterloo NY; daughter of Alfred H. Northam and Betsey Ann Burnett.
June 11, 1863, in New York State, Mr. Manwaring married Esther Ridley. They became the parents of three children, two now living. Daughter Mary Hattie was born October 3, 1865 and died July 28, 1871. She is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery, Lawrence, Kansas. The older son, John (a namesake of our subject's uncle) is a superintendent of the Kanwaka Congregational Sunday School, a position which he fills successfully. He served for one term as township clerk, but refused further nomination to the office. He and his brother Charles Henry, are unmarried and reside with their parents, giving their attention to the stock business, which they conduct in partnership.
