OBITUARY:
PLATTSBURGH REPUBLICAN, SATURDAY MORNING. FEBRUARY 5, 1870 Colonel Roby G.Stone: Editor

COL. STONE:
Please permit me to occupy a few lines in your paper, in relation to a fatal accident in Sciota, on January 28th. Emma Augusta Hodlin, daughter of John and Jane Hodlin, a little girl eight years old, while attempting to get on a load of logs passing by the school house, fell under the sleigh—the sleigh passing over her leg above the knee, breaking it in two places, and taking the flesh clean from the bone down, almost to the ankle; Drs. Childs, of Mooers, and Honsinger, of Chazy, were sent for and were soon on the spot. Amputation was talked of, and when ready to perform, they discovered the child could not live through the operation, and the next morning about six o'clock, the poor little sufferer passed away from the earth. She was a smart and intelligent child. I trust this will be a caution to other children, and prevent them from attempting to get on a sleigh when in motion.
Yours respectfully, H. McK

OBITUARY: An obituary of Samuel D. Phillips

'THE PLATTSBURGH SENTINEL', Feb. __, 1896

Samuel D. Phillips
 Samuel D. Phillips was born in Glasgow, Scotland, in 1809, and died at his home in Mooers, N.Y., Tuesday, February 4th, 1896.
 When a mere boy his parents removed from Glasgow to Kilmarnock, some twenty miles distant, his father, mother, and sister going by stage.  George, an elder brother, drove the team with the household goods, while Samuel, William and James traveled the distance on foot, carrying a basket containing the pet cat and kittens.
 At an early age he was apprenticed to learn the shoemaker's trade at Kilmarnock.  At the age of nineteen he became enthused with the military, and enlisted in the British Army, serving 15 years and 5 months, in the Queen's service.  In 1844, he was stationed at Laprarie, P.Q., from there he deserted the army and came to the United States by way of Champlain, N.Y., and from there he went to Isle La Motte, Vt.
 June 10th, 1847, he was married by the Rev. Townsend, to Miss Lucy Hulbert and removed to Westport, N.Y., and a little later removed to Plattsburgh, N.Y., and in 1849, came to Mooers.  His wife died in 1850.   By the marriage there were two children, James and Susannah Katherine.  Susannah K. married S.D. Hodlin and died Feb 15th, 1895, aged 40 years.  In 1851 he married Miss Emily Richardson, who survives him.  By this marriage there was seven children, George E, William, Lucy Parmella, Deane E., Emma J., Samuel D., and Pliny A., all of whom survive him, except Lucy Parmella who died July 11th, '62 aged 8 years and 8 months.
 For a short time he worked at his trade of shoemaking, at Mooers, after which he served 13 years and 5 months as a trusted keeper at Dannemora state prison.  Returning to Mooers he was elected overseer of the poor, holding that position for several years, and afterward was elected and re-elected to the office of justice of the peace, in each of these places of trust proving a faithful official.
 In politics he was a staunch believer in the principles of the Republican party.
 August 1st, 1887, he received pardon, through the clemency of the Queen, for desertion from the British Army.
 By his genial, kind and sympathetic disposition, he won the admiration of all with whom he came in contact.  In sickness he was an excellent nurse, in trouble of whatever nature, he was always ready to respond and render assistance.
 He was frank and ingenuous in his opinions, full of enthusiasm in any undertaking.  He always wore a smile, and his genial Scotch nature served him many a good turn.
 For fifty years he was a faithful servant of God, a strong believer in the principles of right and truth.  He was a devoted member of the Methodist Episcopal church, bearing the burdens in the interest of the Master and the church of his choice, holding the office of steward and trustee.
 After a long and useful career his strength and nature yielded to infirmities and for several years his illness was severe and tedious to bear.  His last testimony for the Master was rich and full of love.
 The funeral was held from the M.E. church, Friday afternoon, Feb 7th, the pastor, Rev. J. G. Gooding, officiating, preaching from the text Psalm 23:4.  A very large number of friends gathered to pay this last tribute of respect.
