    • The Death of Franklin Wardner
      Franklin Wardner, who died yesterday morning, November 30th 1887, was born in the town of Essex, Essex County, New York on the 20th day of July 1816. He was the seventh son in the order of their birth of the nine children of Philip Wardner Sr. When he was two years old, his father removed from Essex to Monroe County, and seven years later the family located in Allegany County in the vicinity of what is now the village of Andover. Having settled in a densely wooded and inhospitable region of country, father and sons proceeded to clear up a farm of nearly 200 acres of land which has long since passed out of the hands of the family and become one of the valuable pieces of real estate in that rich farming community.
      Franklin remained in his father's home, working as only boys in such times and circumstances ever worked with little chance to acquire an education in the rural school house of that early day, until he was nineteen years of age when he went to Geneva, Ontario county and learned the rule of a cooper which he followed during the most his spent life. While at Geneva, at the age of twenty two years, married Miss Cynthia Heath, who, as his widow, now survives.
      Mr. Wardner, in the course of three years, returned to Allegany, where for 28 years he remained a resident of Almond, removing to Hornellsville in the spring of 1865, where with the exception of a brief residence in Wisconsin, he has since lived. Two children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Wardner, the oldest of whom is Mrs. Nelson Alford, now residing in Pardeeville, Wisconsin, the youngest having been Mrs. C.M. Boyce, of this place, where she died in July of the present year.
      Mr. Wardner has always maintained an honorable name among men, having been posessed of the strictist integrity and respected by all who knew him. In politics he was a democrat, and for many years filled the office of Assessor for the town of Hornellsville to the entire satisfaction of all parties. He became a Free Mason about 23 years ago and progressed through all the different degrees of the order attainable in this country. For many years he served as Tiler of the different Masonic bodies to which he belonged, and was held in high esteem by the members of the craft. For some years, however, he has been living a more retired life. About two years ago he removed to Wisconsin where he remained but little more than a year, returning to this place about the first of last March. Some months previous to his return, he began to sicken and for eleven months his progress toward the inevitable end of man has been steady and uncontrollable, under the ravages of what was supposed to have been an internal cancerous tumor. During the last few months of his life he has been cared for in the family of his grand-children, Mr. and Mrs. E.N. Langley, who have contributed all that was possible to his comfort. In early life he was converted and died possessed of an abiding faith of the Bible. Of his father's family there yet survive him, Mr. A. Wardner of West Almond; Rev. C. Wardner of North Hector, in this state; Mr. Deming Wardner of Ravenswood, W. Va.; Rev. N. Wardner of Milton Junction, Wisconsin; and Mrs. Harriet Clark, widow of the Rev. Thos. Clarke of Cameron.
