CURREN - Jesse CURREN, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed residents of Jackson, was found dead in bed last Saturday morning at the residence of G. W. FRIENDS, about two miles northwest of this village. Mr. CURREN's age was about seventy-eight years, and he had been in feeble and failing health for some time, notably since the death of his wife, which occurred in February last. He complained of being in pain before retiring, but otherwise seemed as well as usual. Mr. CURREN was universally respected, and a host of friends will learn of his death with sincere sorrow. Deceased leaves a son and daughter: William CURREN and Mrs. G. W. FRIENDS. The funeral was held at the FRIENDS residence last Monday, many attending from this village. Interment was in Seely Hill cemetery.

Wellsboro Gazette – January 22, 1903
Burt Seeley, who lived on a farm about three miles from Millerton, was killed near that place last Saturday night by the engine of a coal train on the Tioga division of the Erie. The train was en route from Blossburg to Elmira. Mr. Seeley left home at 7 o’clock Saturday morning driving to Elmira with a load of baled straw, which he sold. He did considerable shopping, starting for home after dark. At Pine City, he stopped for a lunch, leaving about 8:30 o’clock. How he happened to be ignorant of the approach of the train will never be known. The train crew did not know of the accident until near Elmira. The body of the unfortunate man was carried on the engine pilot half a mile and one of the horses three-quarters of a mile. The other horse was carried twenty rods. Evidently both horses were killed instantly. On Sunday morning passers-by noticed the demolished hay rig near the crossing and neighbors started an investigation. The body of Seeley was found at the base of an embankment and was badly cut and mangled. It is generally believed that Seeley was asleep in his wagon, when the horses attempted to cross the tracks when the rig was struck by the train. The deceased is survived by his wife and four children, who are reported in straightened circumstances.
