      Mrs. Sarah Sackett, widow of the late John W.Howe, daughter of Colonel Orange and Mrs. Amanda Sheldon Sackett, died at her home in Fowlerville on Friday, Oct 11,1918, age 92 years. Mrs. Howe was born in Riga, December 27 1826. Her father was one of the first merchants in that vicinity. Soon afterwards he sold his store and purchased an extensive tract of land in Canawaugus, becoming one of the most prosperous and honored pioneer farmers of Genesee Valley.
      Colonel Sackett's farm was historical as it was located in the Indian village of Can-a-wau-gus, where some of the most distinguished men of the Iroquois Confederacy were born.
      In the winter of 1867 Mrs. Howe was married to John Howe, a merchant in Fowlerville, and for many years a member of the Manufacturing firm of B.F. Dow and Company.
      She leaves one sister; Mrs. Daniel Lacy, of Avon; two brothers, Captain Orange Sackett, also of Avon, and Samuel, of Rochester.
      The deceased was a member of the Presbyterian church and was active in its various societies until about two years before her death, when she became too feeble to go from her home. She was a woman of beautiful character and was universally beloved.
      The funeral was held on Sunday afternoon with only a simple service at the grave conducted by Dr. Frost of Avon. The burial was at Mt. Pleasant.

      Fowlerville, Dec. 30. In the death of John W. Hone, which occurred suddenly last Saturday morning, the village and vicinity of Fowlerville have lost a respected and useful citizen. Mr. Hone had long been an influential and reliable factor in the community. Th deceased was born at Rushville, Yates county, December 10, 1832. His father died when he was but 12 years old, and then the care of a semi-invalid mother devolved upon him.

This venture not proving successful, he again became a clerk, this time in Lima.

Upon the organization of the firm of B. F. Dow & Company, he became one of the partners of this firm, which for many years was one of the largest and most active manufacturing and business concerns in all this valley. When overtaken by financial difficulties, the partnership sits dissolved, and Mr. Hone assumed ownership and control of the store. He continued in the business alone till 1906, when be sold out and retired to a well-earned rest in his pleasant home, to enjoy tho competency that was the fruit of long, self-denying labor in the face of many discouraging vicissitudes.

      In 1867 Mr. Hone was married to Miss Sarah Sackett, daughter of Colonel Saekett, one of the influential and wealthy farmers of the Genesee valley. Mrs. Hone survives her husband, Of his own kindred only some distant relatives in the West are left. Mr. Hone never held public office, but he was an earnest, active Republican, a man greatly interested in public affairs. He bad an important part an movements for the benefit of the community in which he lived.

      The funeral was held in the First Presbyterian Church, of Fowlerville, Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Mungam, Mr. Hone's pastor, officiating. Mrs. Charles Menzie, of Caledonia, sang. The bearers were old neighbors and friends of the dead, Robert Vallauw, James Wilson. George Casey, Simon Scott Donald Fraser and Dr. Jones.
