John Robert Kennett, "Syracuse, has long resided in our midst, and is well known to the older residents of Syracuse and formerly Geddes, to be a man, honest and upright in all his dealings, and a total abstainer from liquors and tobacco, and a thorough mechanic. He was born in Maidstone, Kent Co., England, April 12, 1838. His father, W. C. Kennett, came to America, and settled in Syracuse, while his son, John R., was yet a mere child. Here the father remained until after the death of his second wife (who fell dead while crossing the Willow street bridge), when he returned to England, where he died in 1873, at the age of 84. John R. Kennett learned his trade as carpenter and joiner from his father, who was a skilled mechanic, as also was his grandfather and great-grandfather, in fact he springs from a family of mechanics of rare ability; and to his ancestors credit is due for much of the fine architecture of the cathedrals in England; and John R. has not dishonored their calling. He went through the largest carriage and wagon shops of Utica, as well as other extensive establishments of the west of Troy. In 1860 he started in business for himself, manufacturing wagons, carriages, cutters, sleighs, etc,. in Geddes, now the Tenth ward of Syracuse. He continued to enlarge his establishment, until it was the largest one at that time in Central New York that, by machinery, such as sawing, planing, steam bending, etc., was done from the rough to the finish, turned out fine carriages, goose-necked cutters, wagons and sleighs. He also did a large business in pressing out by machinery salt pans and ladles for the Onondaga County Salt Companies. All salt blocks and mills at that time were running full blast. When his business was at this great height his future prospects seemed very bright. On the morning of July 10, 1875, supposed to have been caused by spontaneous combustion, fire broke out. The days previous had been very hot and dry and a strong wind was blowing that morning, and at that time there was no fire department in Geddes, so the fire swept on until all was piled up in a smoldering heap which burned under ground for over a week. Sore discouraged to see his years' efforts and hard work with all prospects so utterly destroyed in a few hours, Mr. Kennett concluded to try farming, but this was not his forte, so, after a brief time spent unsuccessfully in that line, he determined to start up again on the old site, where he now has a wagon shop on a small scale. He having been offered a position with the Onondaga County Milk Association as master mechanic, accepted, and still holds the same position. To Mr. Kennett is due the credit of inventing and manufacturing many useful and meritorious inventions, and in this respect he ranks with the leading inventors of our country. He was the originator of one of the best railroad snow ploughs which is and has been used throughout the Northern States and Canada. Among the many other devices which owe their existence to him, we would especially mention the 'Kennett star tool holder,' the 'Marine merry-go-round,' a patent 'shield buckle,' the 'Kennett harness dees,' etc., etc., These, as will many other inventions of utility and merit, have proved of inestimable value and give ample evidence of the fact that their talented inventor stands foremost in the list of public benefactors in our country. May 22, 1860, Mr. Kennett married Mercena R. Inman, daughter of Martin Inman and Martha Drake Inman, nee Spencer, of Yorkville, Oneida Co., N.Y. Mr. and Mrs. Inman were formerly from the New England States, their forefathers being among the Pilgrims. Unto Mr. and Mrs. Kennett were born seven children, three boys and four girls, the two oldest, Frank Frankland and Elmer Elsworth, died at the age of four and two years, respectively; one dying the day President Lincoln was shot, and the other the day he was buried. The other five children are still living, and the boy, who is the youngest, bids fair of following the footsteps of his father, strictly temperate and a genius. In thirty years of married life spent in Onondaga Co. Mr. and Mrs. Kennett witnessed many and marked changes in Syracuse. Mr. Kennett is a member of the Masonic order. In the year 1891, February 16, Mrs. Kennett departed this life." Source: Bruce, Dwight H. (Ed.), Onondaga's Centennial. Boston History Co., 1896, Vol. II, Family Sketches, pp. 428-429.

WILLIAM LARSON - (June 1892 - July 1, 1948)

INMAN and OSTRANDER Waive Examinations, Held In County Jail Until November
    Waiving examination on charges of first degree murder, at arraignments early Saturday morning before Peace Justice Milton KAST, Town of Albion, Lloyd George INMAN, 29, and Miss Virginia D. OSTRANDER, 33, both of Albion, are being held for the Orleans County Grand Jury in November. They are charged with the fatal shooting of INMAN’s father-in-law, William LARSON, 58, early Friday morning as he was returning to his Kuckville home from his work at the Veteran’s Hospital, Batavia, which he finished at 11p.m. The shooting occurred about one mile south of Barre Center on the Albion-Batavia Road.
    District Attorney J. Kenneth SERVE said that signed confessions had been secured from both suspects. They were arrested by the Orleans County Sheriff's Department. Investigation and questioning was conducted by District Attorney SERVE, Sheriff Carl G. KLEINDIENST, and Inspector H. L. KEMP, and other officials of the sheriff’s department, B. C. I. and State Police.
    INMAN is the husband of LARSON’s oldest daughter, Gladys, 25, but had not been living with her since a few weeks after their marriage last fall. He came to Albion from Colekamp, Mo., last August after some correspondence following their meeting while she was in the service with the U.S. Marines Women’s Auxiliary Corps. They were married last August but he left her several weeks later and six weeks ago she gave birth to a baby boy.
    Sheriff KLEINDIENST gave family trouble as the motive for the slaying, stating that INMAN blamed his father-in-law for the trouble he was having with his wife and that he wanted to get even with him. The night before the slaying INMAN called on his wife at her parents’ home but she saw him coming, went out the back door and went to the home of a neighbor. INMAN, police reported, said he had gone there to arrange for some medical attention for their son, who is said to need specialist’s care.,p. Officials, claim that INMAN then had Miss OSTRANDER drive him to Batavia to wait for Larson to finish his work at the Batavia Veterans Hospital and that they followed him in Miss OSTRANDER’s car as he started his 25-mile drive to Waterport.
    INMAN and Miss OSTRANDER are said to have known one another for about four months and to have been keeping company for about a month. He had been working for a contractor but was injured about the legs some time ago and has not been working recently. He has been living at 219 Washington Street and Miss OSTRANDER has been rooming at 118 South Clinton Street, Albion. Funeral services for LARSON were held at 2 p.m. today in the Merrill Funeral Home at 134 East State Street, Albion. Burial was in Mt. Albion Cemetery with Albion veterans’ organizations furnishing bearers and military rites.
    He leaves his widow, Mrs. Minnie LARSON of Waterport; 13 children; three grandchildren; a brother; and a sister.
