In Years Past

June 9, 2014

In 1914, Coroner George DeForest of Warren County opened the formal inquest into the death of Leo Ganey at Russell, the hearing being scheduled to open at 2 p.m. The session was being held in the village hall and it was filled to the doors with a curious crowd of spectators, many women. Coroner DeForest was presiding but the examination was being largely conducted by District Attorney Frank J. Lyon. Charles Week's interests were being looked after in chief by Hon. A.C. Wade of Jamestown who was present in person and Attorney Emmet H. Ross who was a law partner of Weeks' brother, former Mayor James L. Weeks of Jamestown.
