Deaths Reported by the "Long Islander" 1891-1900
Abstracted by David Roberts
Introduction and Purpose:
This is the second volume of abstracts of deaths reported by the Long Islander, a newspaper
published at Huntington, Suffolk County, L. I., New York. Material for the period 1878-1890 can
be found in Deaths Reported by the `Long Islander' 18 78-1890 by David Roberts, Heritage
Books [1998]. Local newspapers are an excellent source of genealogical information, but much of
this data is "buried" in the newspaper. It is often difficult for the genealogist to find the data
needed. This list of abstractions should help solve this difficulty.
Abstraction Policies:
All deaths listed in the Died column have been included, as have all obituary notices. Many
more deaths, however, are to be found in the local news columns from various Long Island
communities. These deaths have been included and form a major part of the listings in this work.
The newspaper often picked up the deaths of locally important figures from Brooklyn, New York
City, or other areas of Long Island. These deaths have been included. Deaths of national or
international figures were often reported by the newspaper. They, too, are included in these
abstracts.
Accounts of contested wills, fires, railroad and steamboat accident, murder trials, large bequest
of community institutions, explosions, drownings, natural disasters, legal notices, and the like all
provided names of deceased persons.
Unlike the 1878-1890 volume, this volume does include information on the deaths of persons
who could not be identified by name. These deaths were listed at the beginning of the work.
Policy on Names:
A reasonable effort was made to identify a person by his full name. This was not always
possible. A person might only be listed as a relative of another person; a man just as Mr. or a
woman just as Miss or Mrs. Married women were often listed, not by their name, but as Mrs.
Husband's Name. Small children and infants were often not listed by name either. They would
only be listed as the child of a particular parent.
No effort has been made to standardize surnames. Please check for alternate spellings for
non-English surnames.
Policy on Dates:
Generally, the date of death could be found in the newspaper. Often, however, the death date
was Monday of last week or On Wednesday or Recently or Last Week. Where possible, a date
was estimated from the Perpetual Calendar to be found in the World Almanac. Where it was not
possible to estimate a date, the date of the newspaper was given.
African Americans and Native Americans:
Persons noted in the newspaper as colored or black or mulatto are marked with a * for more
easy identification. Sometimes, the paper didn't identify a person as colored, but some internal
evidence, such as the funeral at the A. M. E. church, would show the person was probably an
African American. These people were marked as *? Native Americans are identified, if the
newspaper so identified them. Individuals with mixed Native American ancestry may have been
called colored by the paper. Most people without a * or a *? are probably white, but there may be
exceptions to this generalization.
Condition of the Microfilm:
Generally, the microfilm for the years 1891 to 1900 was good. However, some pages were too
dark, or too faded, or too out of focus to be read clearly. A worse problem was the torn condition
of the actual newspaper being microfilmed. Important information was often lost due to the rips,
folds, and tears on the original copies. Loose pages without clear dates are another serious
problem. Every effort was made to identify the date of the loose pages, but this was not always
possible to do.
Added and Quoted Material:
If material was added to the citation by the abstractor, the added material has been enclosed
with a [ ]. Often this was necessary when quoting from the local news columns. The term this
village needed to be identified as to which local news column was being quoted. If phrases were
quoted directly from the newspaper, they are enclosed in quote marks.
Errors:
Every effort was made to keep errors to a minimum, but in a work of this size, there are bound
to be mistakes. The small type used in the Died column certainly can lead to errors in reading
initials and figures. Factual errors made by the newspaper are impossible to correct and are left
as stated in the paper.
All secondary genealogical resources need to be checked against an original
source. This work is no exception.

long obit in 8 February 1896 paper; negative editorial in 8 February 1896 about his
career; “Mr. French’s methods were not what are call legitimate ones, and his
success and that of the gangs, both Republican and Democratic, which during his
palmy days ruled the city and state of New York, were not healthful political
conditions. The success of such men as Mr. French and his methods marks a low
standard of political honesty and purity .... his whole political career was the
embodiment of the spoils system”; editorial compares Mr. French to a “parasite
that flourishes best on the decaying trunk of the tree” and states that Mr. French’s
political power in Republican politics in Suffolk County caused Republican defeats
and helped the Democratic party win important elections in Suffolk County;
Editor’s Note: This is the most negative attack on a deceased person by the paper
since its 1889 editorial attack following the death of Confederate President
Jefferson Davis.

HOSE Sam*
lynched in Georgia for killing a white man and “outraging the wife of the dead
man”; his ears and fingers were cut off; his heart and liver cut out and carried off
by the mob; kerosene poured over his body, which was set afire; “one special and
two regular trains bearing 4000 people went out [from Atlanta] to the scene of the
affair ... the mutilation of Hose was below the grade of crimes and warfare of the
Apache or Sioux Indians in their most savage days. It shows a spirit of brutal
savagery, a spirit of cruelty that has broken through the veneer of civilization and
shows that in the hearts of the Southern whites there is at all times a demonical
spirit that would outdo in deeds of cruelty even the Malay or negro in his African
wilds. The fact that four thousand residents of the city of Atlanta would go to see
such an affair, that a railroad company would run special trains to carry people to
see such a revolting spectacle ... are striking commenteries on the state of law and
order in the South”; editorial 20 April 1899 paper; Rev. Dr. Boughton, Baptist
preacher in Atlanta, Georgia, protested the lynching, and his church was attacked
by vandals; “the doors of one of the finest Baptist churches of the South were torn
from their hinges and destroyed. Paint was poured over the carpets and floors and
furniture destroyed. The assault on Dr. Boughton’s church is but a logical result of
lax administration of the law and the criminal indifference of governors, courts and
sheriffs to the commiting of such gross crimes as murding respectable and
inoffensive colored men for alledged crime when there was not a particle of
evidence to connect the prisoner with them”; editorial 6 May 1899 paper
