Marriage announcement of John Daniels and Ida Hirsch (Buffalo Courier, 22 Apr 1900, page 24)
One of the most charming of the early spring weddings was solemnized last Wednesday evening, when Miss Ida B. Hirsch and Mr. John Daniels were united in marriage at their new home in Marilla. The Rev. Mr. Moss of the Hampshire Street Methodist Episcopal Church, Buffalo, performed the ceremony in the presence of half a hundred relatives and friends of the bride and groom. There were no attendants. The bride wore an Empire gown of grey crepe de chine, and she carried bride roses. The house was beautifully decorated with spring flowers and ferns, and the supper tables were laid in green and white. A mandolin and guitar club of which the bride is a member played the wedding march and furnished the music during the informal reception by which the ceremony was followed. A special car conveyed the Buffalo guests to Elma, from where they were driven in carriages to Marilla. Mr. and Mrs. Daniels left at midnight for the East. On their return they will take possession of their new home in the…

Obituary of George Hirsch (Rochester Taglicher Beobachter, 18 Jul 1881, page 3)
GERMAN:
Gestern Abend, kurz nach neun Uhr, starb höchst unerwartet und ohne vorhergehende Krankheit, in seiner Wohnung No. 100 Clinton Strasse einer unserer bekanntesten deutschen Mitbürger, Mr. George Hirsch. Er hatte sich den ganzen Tag über wie gewöhnlich in anscheinend guter Gesundheit befunden, und ab gegen acht Uhr mit Appetit sein Abendessen. Kurz darauf beklagte er sich über Schmerz gen in der Brust, die er schon einmal am Tage leicht und vorübergehend gefühlt, und schickte nach einer Medicin; allein nach wenigen Minuten wurde er schlimmer und kaum fünfzehn Minuten nach seinem ersten Schmerzensanfalle hauchte er sein Leben aus. Die Doktoren: Badiera, Benford und Cogswell waren gerufen worden; allein Sie konnten nichts thun als den Tod constatiren, der nach ihrer Meinung von einem Schlagfluss herbeigeführt worden war. Corner Daningburg wird heute abend einen Inquest abhalten.
Der Verstorbene war den Sohn des Lehrers der Bürgerschule in Schwarzenbach bei Hof, wo er im…

DIED. - Thursday morning, Jan. 20, 1887, at his home in the town of Mt. Ida, Jacob Bonnell, aged about fifty years. The cause of his death was a cancer which made its appearance on his neck about six months ago, and from which he has suffered intensely during the past few weeks. Mr. Bonnell was an old resident of Mt. Ida and was a well-to-do farmer. He has had property in Dakota which has called him there frequently. Some years ago he had a cancer cut out of his lip, and has had no further trouble from it until the more malignant growth came which caused his death. He leaves a widow and four children. His funeral was held at the Mt. Ida church Saturday.
