Roll Call of the Dead

 

From 1902 through 1919 “The Paterson Morning Call” newspaper (Paterson, New Jersey) ran a special section at the end of those years aptly called “Roll Call of the Dead.”

Following is an indexed listing of those individuals “The Call” identified as “prominent citizens 1902-1918.

A complete listing of “Roll Call of the Dead” has been prepared by the

ROLL CALL OF THE DEAD

“The Morning Call,”
Wednesday Morning, December 31, 1902
Grim Reaper’s Record for the Year in Paterson
A Long Procession
of Young and Old, Rich and Poor,
Gone to Last Home.

Recalled only in Memory

Philip KATZ, Edgar P. WHEELER, Cornelius A. CADMUS, Carleton T. HERRICK, John T. PROBERT, David BOHM, and Samuel TASNEY are some of the well known citizens who have succumbed during the last twelve months.

In the long list published below will be found the names of men and women of Paterson who have died during the year. While in the aggregate, the list seems appalling, Paterson is to be congratulated as the death rate here is exceptionally low and for the past twelve months, all things considered, there have been few of our prominent citizens called hence. There have been no great calamities, such as the Lackawanna horror, or the Main Street explosion during the years and murders have been conspicuous by their absence. In fact, it have been Paterson’s best year. Everyone has been able to find employment; food supplies have been plentiful and even in the case of what (threatened to be a calamity, the rioting of last June, it was not as bad as it might have been. There were a number of person wounded, the none killed and the destruction to property was small. In the face of all these gifts of Providence, Paterson enters on the new year with confidence and hope for the future.

ROLL CALL OF THE DEAD

“The Morning Call,”

December 31, 1903

Tale of Years Dead

Grim Reaper Busy During 1902 in Paterson

List is a Long One.

In Every Profession and Trade Vacancies have been left.

Three City Officials Dead.

Many Main Street Merchants Gone to Their Last Home–Clergymen, Physicians, Lawyers, Artisans, and Manufacturers Summoned–Death Rate Below Normal in the City, But Truth of Adage About Shining Marks Borne Out.

Statistics show that the death rate in Paterson has been below normal during the past year, and local undertakers have said that never had business been so bad. It may be said that the general public is reconciled to poor business, so far as the undertakers are concerned, but in looking over the records for 1903, it would appear that death had gathered in many a shining mark. Not in many years, in fact, has the list of prominent and well known citizens cut down by the grim reaper been so large. In every profession and every trade, the loss of men notable in their vocations has been felt.

Commencing with city officials, three active participants in the city’s affairs have passed away during the year. Alderman William CROSS, Recorder George B. SENIOR, and James W. RAFFERTY, registrar of licenses are no more.

Among the former officials, ex-Alderman James BROWNLEE, former Sheriff William DOUGLAS, Sr., and former Freeholder Robert NORWOOD have succumbed.

Two well known physicians answered the last call, Dr. Sherburne R. MERRILL and Dr. C.F.W. MYERS.

John R. BEAM, prominent in military and legal circles passed away on July 4 last, while many of his friends in the military of Paterson were at the state camp at Sea Girt.

The Rev. F.E. OWENS, Rev. W.D.C. REDROCK, and Rev. W. LUBACH, among the clergy who went to their last home.

Julian RIX, artist and prince of good fellows, died so recently that his many friends still mourn their loss.

Israel BANNIGAN and Daniel J. SHEEHAN, known from one end of the country to the other wherever silk is manufactured, are no more.

Robert ATHERTON, a manufacturer of silk machinery, died recently.

The tale of Main Street businessmen is a long one: John T. MORRIS of Lockwood Bros. & Co.; James A. MORRISSEE, real estate, William D. LAVERACK, jeweler; Charles KEELER, hatter; Henry HABBEN, crockery merchant; Morton CLARK, hardware; Henry HARWOOD, groceries, and Morris CORINSKI, clothier, have gone and the places that knew them know them no more.

Then too, among the prominent merchants of the city were William H. KINMILLS, druggist; Uz V. MUNSON, grocer; Cappeietti ANTONI, shoe merchant, and Joseph MOSELY, auctioneer, who have all gone to that bourne from which no traveler returns.

Among the well known citizens were Michael J. MORRIS, John P. QUACKENBUSH, Andrew H. VAN WAGONER, John QUACKENBUSH, John YATES, Charles H.A. TIFFANY, Gilbert PIERSON, John YULE, and John H. ZABRISKIE.

Theodore LONSCHEN and John HARTMEIER were prominent manufacturers of this city.

George B. PULVER, an insurance agent; Peter ARNOT, former superintendent of Grant’s Locomotive Works; Philip H. MACE, boniface; John LAMOND and Colin T. ROBERTS, the last two names being partners in the same firm of rug manufacturers, died during the year.
