Death of William Farnsworth, an Old and Esteemed Resident.

Verona, July 30 -- William Farnsworth, one of the oldest and most respected residents of this village died at 9:30 p.m. Thursday. He had been in poor health for the past five years. At the time of his death, Mr. Farnsworth was making his home with his daughter, Mrs. Michael Snyder. He was born in England 75 years ago, and was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Wright Farnsworth. When about 4 years old, he came to this country with his parents who located in Verona. He was the last of his family. He followed farming all his life. He leaves five daughters and three sons: Mrs. Michael Snyder, Mrs. G. W. Oatman, Mrs. Elmer Dann, Mrs. Philip Oatman, Verona; Mrs. W. F. Sherman, Rome; Albert and George Farnsworth, Verona; Bradford L. Farnsworth, Oriskany. He also leaves thirty-four grandchildren and nine great grandchildren.

Mr. Farnsworth belonged to no church, but his life was exemplary and full of deeds of kindness. He was upright in his dealings with all and merited the confidence and respect given him.

The funeral will be held from the residence of his daughter, Mrs. Michael Snyder, tomorrow (Sunday) at 1 p.m. and at the First Presbyterian Church here at 2 o'clock. The friends and acquaintances of Mr. Farnsworth are invited to attend the services. The burial will be made in the cemetery here.
