Captain Edward Buck Dead.

Captain Edward Buck of Yonkers, who recently got reconciled to his wife at Long Branch, from whom he had been separated for 33 years, died last week. He had a son living at Long Branch and leaves property worth about $35,000.


Rev. Joseph K. Cheesman.

Rev. Joseph K. Cheesman, one of Red Bank's most respected citizens, died Sunday night at his home on Wallace Street, aged 78 years. He was born at Kingston, Canada. In 1843 he graduated from the college of physicians and surgeons in New York and went to a place in western New York to practice, remaining there about a year. He married Miss Francina M. Brown of Manlins, N. Y., and soon afterward attended a theological seminary. After graduating from the latter institution he entered the Methodist Episcopal ministry as a member of the Genessee conference, in which he preached about ten years. His health becoming poor, he took a trip abroad, spending a long season in London. After his return to America he went to Kalamazoo, Michigan, where he resumed the practice of medicine. A year or so later he accepted a call to the Troy, New York conference, serving as pastor in various churches there from 1857 to 1872. He was compelled to give up active labor again on account of his health. About a year afterward he moved to Red Bank and practiced as a physician for some years. Ten years ago he retired from business. Mrs. Cheesman died about six years ago and he leaves one child, Mrs. Thompson of New York. Dr. Cheeseman was a member of Grace church. He was very charitable, but his many benefactions were known only to himself and those whom he aided. The funeral services were held from Grace church this afternoon, most of the clergymen of the town taking part. The pallbearers were James S. Throckmorton, John A. Worthley, Walter H. Morton, Joseph Gill, Daniel S. Borden and Joseph W. Child. The body will be taken to Schenectady to-morrow for burial.

Mrs. Henrietta Conover.

Mrs. Henrietta Conover of Red Bank died on Sunday morning at her home on Front street, aged 74 years. She was the widow of John P. Conover and leaves four children-Stephen S. Conover, of Long Branch, Mrs. George Hance, Mrs. Daniel H. Applegate and Miss Annie Conover of Red Bank. For several years Mrs. Conover had been an invalid. About a month ago her health commenced to fail rapidly and death was due to a general breaking down of the system. The funeral was held this afternoon at Trinity church.

Miss May H. Smith.

Miss Mary H. Smith of Keyport died suddenly on Sunday night of last week. She had gone to bed at nine o'clock as well as usual, and in about half an hour she got up and complained of a terrible pain about her heart. She grew worse rapidly and died about ten o'clock. She was 65 years old. She was born in Keyport and had lived there all her life, she having been a member of the household of her aunt, Mrs. John W. Hoff, for the last forty years.

Mrs. Sidney Meyers.

Mrs. Sidney Meyers of Freehold died last Thursday of rheumatism of the heart. She was twice married, her first husband having been George W. Truex of Red Bank. She was married to Mr. Meyers just a year ago. The funeral was held at Freehold on Monday. She was born near Marlboro in 18543, her parents being Patience and William Croxson. She leaves no children.

John T. Ackerson, a well-known farmer and an old resident of Hazlet, died last Friday night in his 85th year. He leaves three sons and two daughters. The funeral services, held yesterday from the house, were conducted by Rev. J. K. Manning, and the burial was in the Holmdel cemetery.
