From the Victor Herald, Victor, NY Friday Jan 23, 1892 page 3 by: Dianne Thomas

"Frank Lamont, who murdered Alfred Leach in Canadice in 1890, died at the hospital at Auburn prison on Monday. He had been sentenced to prison for 20 years. His remains were taken to Springwater for burial. He leaves a wife and one child."

From the Geneva Advertiser May 13, 1890 by: Dianne Thomas

"Murder In Canadice -
News reached Canandaigua yesterday about noon of a cruel murder in the town of Canadice. The reports received were very meager, merely stating that Alfred Leach, a prominent farmer of the town, was shot and killed by a farm laborer named Frank Lamont, whom he had just discharged.

It seems that Leach had become dissatisfied with Lamont for some reason and went yesterday morning to the tenant house where Lamont lived to discharge him. After Lamont had been told that his services were no longer desired he picked up a shot gun and discharged the contents into Leach's body, killing him almost instantly.

Lamont and his wife fled after the shot was fired, but were arrested before noon at Springwater, Livingston county. Lamont is 24 years of age and Leach was fifty-five."
