I found this, so Myron could be Myron Z. Bemus' son
BEMUS Myron J. PUTNEY Bertha M. 1893 3 504
there is the connection, tho I just dont understand why everyone was given the confusing title Bemus-Putney, but oh well.

I found this on a site, too cool!
Talk about prize potatoes. Mrs. Jay Bemus was out to the farm of her father,
Albert Putney, southeast of the city, this morning and brought back a basket of
potatoes. The potatoes were of such mammoth size that she could not resist the
temptation to bring them to the News-Hearld office to show them. Mrs. Bemus had
a grocer's half bushel basket full and it contained only 12. The largest one
measured over 16 inches in circumference. They are nice looking potatoes and
are solid throughout. Mrs. Bemus says this is no special selection, but the
average run of the field.

Im about to have a heart attack, I swear it I am!
I just found Elias Randall's obit. I realize he is NOT part of the Bemus' but he is being added to this I dont CARE!!

This is Ella's obit, very sad indeed!
Later Particulars of the Tragic Ending of An Estimable Woman.
The funeral of the late Mrs. J. W. Willey, who committed suicide by
cutting her throat with a razor, will be held from the family home at West
Springfield on Friday at 11 o'clock eastern time. Interment at East
The latest information regarding the tragic event shows that Mrs. Willey
stood in front of the mirror when she cut her throat, thence went to a window
and finally got into bed to die. The trail of blood indicated her course.
She had put on an entire change of underclothing and a night robe before
committing the act.
The cut in the throat was not more than half an inch long, having
evidently been inflicted with the point of the razor. It is the opinion of the
physician that she was at least half an hour bleeding to death.
The lady must have been nearly exhausted when she got into bed, as there
was no evidence of blood when her husband first saw her.
She had been locked in the house, so that her husband had to unfasten a
door with a piece of wire before he could effect an entrance to the house upon
his return from Eire. It was not until after he had telephoned for a physician
that he discovered the wound in his wife's throat and the cause of her death.
Mrs. Willey was undoubtedly suffering from temporary derangement of the
mental faculties when she took her life.
She was prominent in the village and had many friends, and not a real
trouble in the world, save that she had been subject for years to the most
excruciating headaches.

-I dont know when this happened, as there is no date, but I found them on the 1910 census, and Elias died 1908, so it happened between 1910-1920.

Miss Electa M. Wright of Conneaut and Alonzo B. Randall of Monroe were
married October 28. (1880 penciled in here.)

A social and patriotic celebration of July 4th, was held at the residence
of A. B. Randall, at Bushnell, on Monday. Mrs. Randall and her daughter, Ruby,
were hostesses, ably assisted by Mrs. L. H. Means and daughter, Winifred.
The dining room was given a festive appearance. Two long tables were
profusely decorated with American flags and red, white and blue banners, while
the room was tastefully ornamented with tissue paper in the national colors.
Thirty-one guests were present.
It is the custom of the Randall and Means families to hold a family
reunion and Fourth of July picnic each year, and the event this year was as
enjoyable as any ever held.

Miss Mabelle Dean is United in Marriage to Geo. W. Scott of New York.
Wedding bells were ringing Monday night in Monroe, when Mabelle, eldest
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Dean, was united in marriage to George W.
Westcott of New York. The immediate relatives witnessed the ceremony. Mrs.
Chas. J. Thompson presided at the piano, playing the wedding march. The bride
wore a beautiful gown of white satin and carried a bouquet of white roses.
There was a real wedding feast immediately following the ceremony. Greetings
and partings with relatives and old friends and the carriage came to bear the
happy couple to Conneaut, enroute to their future home in New York.
The best wishes of a multitude of friends follow Mr. and Mrs. Westcott.
The bride has been a leader in our younger set for several years and she will be
greatly missed. The charm and geniality of her character has made her ever a
favorite with her friends.
