Mr. Gaffin was born in Wyoming in 1835, being 63 years of age at the time of his death. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Gaffin and had always resided in Wyoming. In 1859 he was united in mariage to Miss Susan Whiteside who with three daughters, Elizabeth, Anna and Nellie survive him. He also leaves two brothers, John and Henry and two sisters, Mrs. C.J.

Mr Gaffin was a painter by trade, was of a quiet disposition and lived a retired life seeming to care more for the associations of his home and family than those of the world."

Mrs. Susan Everingham one of the oldest residents of this town, died last Friday evening at the home of her son, C.H. Everingham of Castile, aged 78 years. She had gone there on a visit, and went to bed that evening apparently in her usual health, only to be attacked by heart failure, which suddenly caused her death. Her maiden name was Susan Gaffin, and she was born in Perry. In 1847 she was united in marriage with William Everingham, who died, February 22, 1884. She has been a resident of this town more than fifty years, and the last fifteen years of her life, has been very quiet and secluded, on account of failing sight. She was a member of the Woman's Relief Corps.
Six sons survive her: Charles H. of Castile, John W., William and J. Frank of Warsaw. Thomas K. of Batavia, and Joseph W. Everingham of Silver Springs. The only surviving member of her father's family, is a brother, John Gaffin of Wyoming.
The funeral services were held from the home of her son in Castile, Sunday morning at half past nine, Rev. I.B. Hudnutt, officiating. The interment took place in Warsaw cemetery, a quartette from the Nyack band furnishing the music at the grave.
