The Evening Leader, Corning, N.Y., Friday, October 7, 1938

Warren W. Oxx, 92, who lives at Bath with his niece, Miss Agnes Harvey, served in the 189th New York Volunteers during the Civil War. He was under General Grant at Appamatox Court House, Virginia, in April 1865, when General Lee and the Confederate Army of Virginia, surrendered, ending four years of civil strife, "After the war I came back to Bath," said Mr. Oxx. "Later was admitted to the bar and 'hung out my shingle' and practiced in Bath for more than six years.
Young 'Bill' Rumsey and myself have opposed each other in trial of many cases in Justice's Court," said he, 'Bill' later became a justice of the Supreme Court, following in the footsteps of his illustrious father, the late Justice David Rumsey, who long graced the Supreme Court bench.
"After while I removed to Hornell, where I was in practice more than 50 years, served 20 years as a magistrate in that city."
Mr. Oxx is a member of the Steuben County Bar Association, dean of that body.
He married in early life, to Louise McFee, whom he survived.
