In Years Past

June 4, 2014

In 1914, the Rev. Clara Watson of Jamestown went to Fentonville this day and officiated at the funeral of shooting victim Leo Ganey, which was held at the home of Ganey's sister, Katherine Rhodes. Watson spoke words of comfort and of cheer to the surviving relatives, emphasizing the point that death was but the transition from this life to a higher, broader plane of existence. It was a most appropriate, eloquent and effective discourse. The services were private, only immediate relatives being present. Floral pieces were sent by the Fentonville Cemetery Society and the Frewsburg Daughters of Rebekah Lodge. There were also floral offerings from neighbors and friends. The internment was in Fentonville Cemetery.
