Edith Bailey, daughter of Winfield S. and Ella Bailey, died at the home of her parents in Independence, August 19th, aged 16 years and 6 months. Pulmonary tuberculosis claimed her for its early prey. During an illness of over five years, she manifested a meekness of mind and resignation to her Heavenly Father's will that was surprisingly tender and pathetic. Always anxious to serve she seemed to forget herself in her efforts to contribute to the comfort of others. Her final illness was brief, being confined to her bed but a few days. She sank rapidly, and quietly fell asleep.  The funeral services were held the following Monday afternoon from the Seymour Lake M.E. church. A large concourse of sorrowing relatives and neighbors followed the remains to their last resting place in Seymour Lake cemetery. (Pontiac Post, September 1, 1899)

Theodore Bezirium.  Died on October 17, 2006 at the age of 80 from prostate cancer. He passed away at his home in Ann Arbor with his wife and daughters present. Ted is best remembered for his love of golf, Michigan football, and his family. He was a co-founder of the popular Thursday Night Men's Golf League at Ann Arbor Golf & Outing where he and his wife, Ruth, are well known by staff and members alike. He was known as the "Golf Czar" for his tight control over the Thursday night golf festivities - where he maintained a special reserved chair for himself. As the Thursday night teams became too raucous in shouting out their scores from the evening games, Ted could be counted on to bang his STOP sign on the table, calling out "CAPTAINS ONLY!" and restoring order. His passion for his alma mater's football team dictated virtual silence during family gatherings to watch the Michigan games on television (TV being his preference to Big House seating in the interest of catching replays). He consistently referred to himself, Ruth and his two girls as his 'favorite foursome' and adored his grandchildren. Born on July 23, 1926, Ted was a native of Ann Arbor, graduating from Ann Arbor High School. Ted served in the US Army and was honorably discharged in 1946 upon the death of his only brother, John, who was killed in the service. Prior to receiving his Bachelor's degree in education, he married Ruth Spear in 1950. They moved to Dearborn where he started his teaching career at Haigh Elementary School. His Master's degree was earned at the University of Michigan and he subsequently became an administrator in the Dearborn Public Schools, serving as principal at Howard, Haigh, and Clark Elementary Schools. He and Ruth returned to live their retirement years in their hometown of Ann Arbor, while spending winters at their condominium in Ft. Myers, FL. Ted is survived by his wife Ruth, daughters Debra Overbey (Kent) of Dexter, Stacy Fox (Mike VanHemert) of Northville, five grandchildren Kelsey (Brian Boos), Shane, Kent, Kyle, and Callan, and sisters Suzanne Baker, Bette Church (Dan), Constance Creel (Jim), and Mary VerHeek (Ed). No visitations or services will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Arbor Hospice in Ted's memory.  (Ann Arbor News, October 19, 2006)

Former University educator and famed author and humanitarian Rollo W. Brown died in Cambridge this weekend at the age of 76. He was a central figure in the cultural and intellectual life of this area for over a third of a century. Although he wrote 17 books and was a constant contributor to the Atlantic Monthly, Brown was known primarily for his work with young people interested in the literary arts, especially poetry. He left the University faculty in 1925 after six years in the English department, but his home on Garden St. remained a warm and friendly meeting place for students who wanted his help or advice.  Amos N. Wilder, who delivered the funeral oration, said that "his worth as an individual was shown by the cordial appreciation of him by leading figures in the Yard." Brown was a personal friend of the last four University presidents.  (Harvard Crimson, October 16, 1956)

She survived her husband who died with that dreadful disease consumption, and she was left a widow with her two little children three and five years old.

Lewis Van Blarcom, a prominent lawyer of this place, died yesterday of paralysis.  He was born at Sparta, this county, July 19, 1835.  He served in the civil war in the Fifteen Regiment, New Jersey Volunteers.  He was wounded and captured, and spent four months in Libby Prison.  He was admitted to the bar in 1865, and in 1869 formed a partnership with Joseph Coult, now of Newark.

Mrs. Mary Thomson Van Blarcom, whose death occurred at her home in Newton, October 5th, was born at Marksboro, N. J., on June 5th, 1837. She was the daughter of Dr. Alexander Hamilton Thomson, a graduate of the medical department of the University of Pennsylvania, and Rachael Everett Thomson, his wife. Her grandfather was Robert Thomson and her great grandfather, Col. Mark Thomson of distinguished Revolutionary memory, and a large land owner from whom Marksboro took its name. Besides serving in the war for Independence, Col. Thomson was in 177(unclear) elected a member from Sussex county to the Provincial Congress of New Jersey, one of the acts of which Congress was to change the government of New Jersey from the colonial form to a constitutional government or state. In all services to his country and state, in the trying days which called for patriotism, courage and capacity, Col. Thomson's name appears a heritage of honor, to his descendants.  In 1857, she married James Cummins, who died in 1863. Of this marriage, there are living three children, Mary L., wife of the late Vice Chancellor James E. Howell, Anna Florence, wife of James E. Baldwin, of Newton and Dr. James H. Cummins, of Newton.  In 1871, she married Captain Lewis Van Blarcom, an accomplished member of the bar. The children of this marriage are Kate Van Blarcom, of Newton, Andrew Van Blarcom, second assistant Prosecutor of Essex county and Lewis Van Blarcom, a lawyer of Newton. All her married life was passed at Newton, and though nearly eighty years of age, the declining years had dealt very gently with the beauty of her youth and with her attractive personality. She surrounded herself with that ideal county life of which she was so fond and which was always foremost in her mind. These with her many starling graces of mind and heart, drew to her a wide circle of friends to whom they will ever be a precious memory. (New Jersey Herald, October 12, 1916)
