Newspaper items from the
WESTERN NEW YORKER
Shooting Affair. An ill-will of long standing between
two neighbors named [Royal P.] Case and [Henry L.] Andrews, living
near Johnsonsburg in this county, culminated in an affray during
which Case shot Andrews with a pistol on Saturday last. The ball
took effect in the neck, but it is believed that the wound will
not prove fatal. - Thursday, June 14, 1866
The Case and Andrew Affair. We learn that the altercations
between Case and Andrew which terminated in the shooting of Andrew,
arose as follows: On the morning of June 10th Case went to his
cornfield, which lies across the road and nearly opposite to
Andrew's house, to see if Andrew's hens were injuring the corn.
The parties commenced quarreling and using hard language, Andrew
standing in his door yard and Case in his corn. After a little
Case went to his house and sent his hired boy to drive his sheep
down the road to feed on his road side, and went along himself,
taking his pistol with him to shoot the hens if they were found
in the corn. While the sheep were feeding, Andrew and his sons
[William H. and Frank E. Andrews] came up through their orchard
near where Case was standing. The boys commenced to whistle and
throw stones among the sheep, causing them to run by Case. After
a few harsh words, Andrew jumped over the fence and pitched into
Case, threw him down and held him on the ground, handling him
roughly until Case entreated him to let him go. After Case got
up he stepped back towards his road fence, took out his pistol
and cocked it, and told them they must not repeat what they had
done. Andrew pitched into him again, taking him around the thighs
and hips and endeavored to throw him. Case claims that as he
was about to fall he threw his right hand, which held the cocked
pistol, over Andrew's back, at which time the pistol discharged,
the ball striking Andrew in the back, lodging in the side. This
terminated the affray. Case gave himself up and is now in the
custody of an officer. Andrews is quite low in consequence of
the wound. The examination of Case is to held to-morrow at Varysburg,
before Esq. [Luman P.] Lawrence [Sheldon Justice of the Peace].
- Thursday, June 21, 1866
Arrested for Murder. Andrews, who was shot in the affair
with Case near Johnsonsburg, some weeks since, died on Friday
last, and Case was immediately arrested on a warrant for murder.
The examination commenced before Esquire [Gordon] Bently [Orangeville
Justice of the Peace] yesterday and is to be continued to-day.
- Thursday, August 2, 1866
Circuit Court. Judge [Martin] Grover is holding Court
here this week. There is a large attendance -- the Hotels being
overflowing. The main interest centers on the trial of Case on
an indictment for the murder of Andrews. Hon. Sanford E. Church,
L. [Linus] W. Thayer, and Bartlett & Pierce [law firm of
Myron P. Bartlett and Beriah N. Pierce] are counsel for the prisoner.
Dist.-Att'y [Byron] Healy conducts the prosecution, assisted
by Thomas Corlett, Esq. The Jury was impaneled yesterday, and
it is thought the trial will occupy three days. - Thursday, December
The Murder Trial. The Jury in the trial of Case for
murder of Andrew, on Friday night brought in a verdict of manslaughter
in the third degree. Judge Grover sentenced the prisoner to two
years' imprisonment at Auburn. Not being able to attend the trial,
we cannot review the testimony or notice the conduct of the case
at length--gathering a few conclusions from unprejudiced persons
who did attend. Originating in a neighbors' quarrel, and there
being no material dispute as to the facts of the shooting, the
case naturally turned upon the motive, the intent, the provocation,
and the degree of malice. On these points the bringing out and
sifting of testimony was very carefully managed. Ex-Dist.-Attorney
Corlett conducted the examination of witnesses on the part of
the people with great shrewdness and ability, as might be expected
of a lawyer with his brains, experience, force and discretion.
The testimony for the defence had been worked up by Bartlett
& Pierce, and was complete, systematic and comprehensive
to an extent that greatly conduced to what was generally regarded
as a favorable verdict and a light sentence. L. W. Thayer, Esq.,
was entrusted with the important part of examining the witnesses
on behalf of the defence. It is needless to say that it was done
with much skill and adroitness. Hon. Sanford E. Church summed
up the case for the prisoner in an address two hours and a-half
in length, worthy of his high reputation as a lawyer. Members
of the bar not engaged on the trial pronounced it a model for
logical force, judicious arrangement, and eloquent presentation.
The Dist. Attorney, Hon. B. Healy, summed up for the people in
an effort that was said not to suffer at all in comparison with
the effort of the ex-Lieut. Gov'r. He had sifted the case to
the bottom, and presented facts, argument and appeal to the Jury
in as strong a light as it could have well been done. Judge Grover's
charge to the Jury was of an hour's length; and when Martin Grover
talks an hour there has been a good deal said. It was clear,
concise, strong and to the point, like all of this remarkable
man's legal addresses. The trial excited much interest, and attracted
a large number of spectators. - Thursday, December 27, 1866
Harriet HOLCOMB - b. Jan. 1, 1811, Varysburg, Wyoming
Co., NY; d. Sep. 15, 1892, Johnsonburg, Wyoming Co., NY. Her birthdate
is calculated from her age at death of 81 years, 8 months, 15
days. The information on the death certificate, supplied by Mrs.
Daniel LINCOLN [probably a relation of her daughter-in-law Eva
(LINCOLN) ANDREWS], includes her parents names as "Johna
Hocumb" and "Sabra. Hocumb." Upon death of Henry,
she lived with daughter Lillian on farm at Johnsonburg, Wyoming
Co., NY. The 1870 Directory of Wyoming County lists Mrs. Harriet
ANDREWS of the Town of Sheldon, post office Johnsonburg, lot 4
range 3, farmer, 82 1/2 acres. Harriet is found with son Frank
and daughter Lillian in the 1870
census of Sheldon, Wyoming Co., NY, and with daughter Lillian
and a granddaughter in the 1880
census of Sheldon, Wyoming Co., NY. The 1892
census of the Town of Orangeville shows Harriet HOLCOMB <sic>
as age 80, among the 48 households listed. Daughter of Jonah
HOLCOMB and Sabra.
Photographs of Henry and Harriet were taken shortly before
his death in 1866. A photo of their daughter Melvina's brother-in-law
Homer Atwood MOREY is in the Civil War Pension file of his widow,
and appears to have been taken at the same time. All three photos
appear to have the same mounts, print paper, trimming, and settings.
Henry and Homer are posed the same, and the drapery in the photos
of Harriet and Homer appear to be identical. An affidavit by
George W. GOULD states that Homer's photo was taken at Johnsonburg.
Homer was discharged from the Cavalry on July 19, 1865. Another
photo of Harriet is estimated to have been taken about 1880.
Children of Henry and Harriet Andrews
- Freeborn W. - b. Jul. 3, 1835, probably in Wyoming Co., NY;
d. Aug. 26, 1864; bur. Johnsonburg Cemetery, Wyoming Co., NY.
His birth date is calculated from his age at death (29-1-23).
Family sources indicate he died while "attending school
in N.Y." The Wyoming Co. Military Duty Enrollment 1862-63,
for the town of Sheldon, lists Freeborn ANDREW at age 27, "teacher,
claims asthma." Married Caroline, who survived him. An unconfirmed
report identifies Caroline as Caroline UNDERWOOD, daughter of
Calvin UNDERWOOD and Diantha BURLINGAME. Son of Freeborn ANDREWS:
Henry C. (also known as Calvin Henry ANDREWS).
- Wesley - b. about 1839, NY; d. about 1850 (before census
dated Jul. 29, 1850), Wyoming Co., NY; bur. Johnsonburg Cemetery,

No grave marking has been found. It is possible that Wesley may
be the same child as John W., who does not appear on the same
list of children which includes Wesley.
- Rosetta J. - b. Dec. 7, 1841, Orangeville, Wyoming Co., NY;
d. Jun. 8, 1891; bur. Johnsonburg Cemetery, Wyoming Co., NY.

the 1870 Directory of Wyoming County as being of Orangeville,
post office North Wethersfield, lot 57, a farmer, with 140 acres.
He and Lydia were buried in Union Corners Cemetery, Java, NY.
From a photo taken about 1885 at Corfu, NY by Mrs. E. O. BRADLEY
it appears that Rosetta had three daughters, one or all three
being children of Wakeman. Rosetta is called Rosetta J. BACKUS
of Shelden, Wyoming Co., NY in the Aug. 6, 1866 estate papers
for her father. The grave marker for Charles and Rosetta reads:
"Charles E. Backus died Apr 19, 1864 aged 27 yr's 7 mo's
& 17 d's. Rosetta J. Lockwood his wife died June 8, 1891
aged 51 years."

of Frank and Eva]. The parents of Melissa (SPENCER) LINCOLN
were Asa SPENCER and Sarah CALKINS. Frank and Eva lived in Batavia,
Wyoming Co., NY. Notes of family members of Frank's sister Melvina
E. (ANDREWS) MOREY give the name of Frank's wife as Evelyn, but
