New York Obituaries - 1864 - Lewis F. and J. Nelson Ostrander
At Seneca, Nemaha County, Kansas, on Friday, Aug 19, Lewis F. Ostrander, of New Hackensack,
Dutchess County, NY, in the 38th year of his age.
The deceased came to his death from the effect of a wound, caused by the accidental discharge of a musket,
June 25, at Comstock's Ranche, on the Overland Route to California.
At Seneca, Nehama County, Kansas, on Monday, Sep 12, J. Nelson Ostrander of New Hackensack,
Dutchess County, NY, in the 29th year of his age.
The deceased received his death wounds on or about the 8th of August, at the hands of the Indians, while
gallantly assisting in repelling an attack made by them on Comstock's Ranche, situated on the Little Blue River,
75 miles coutheast of Fort Kearney.
These brothers leave a large circle of friends to mourn their untimely end, and in their death a void is made
which on earth can never be filled. But while we mourn their absence from the circle which so heartily
welcomed and loved them, we have blessed assurance that they
have gained "an inheritance incorruptible, undefiled, and that fadeth not away."
