There are no further listings for Timothy nor a record of his death in Michigan. When his sister, Anna Walling Burlingame died in 1913, among survivors are "one brother, Cornelius, in the West." That they didn't even recall his name indicates no contact between Timothy and his family, and he probably died prior to 1913. He is not found in the 1900 or 1910 U.S. census so he likely died between 1897-1900 in Michigan, with little notice or fanfare since he never married and always worked menial jobs.

They were committed to the lockup to await trial, and there is good prospect that some of them will be sent to the House of Refuge. For some time this gang has been carrying on their transactions to the great annoyance of garden proprietors residing on the west side of the Bridge. It is hoped that their arrest will prove a warning to all boys who have an itching for the choice fruit, of our village gardens. Upon trial six of these boys, named Paul Denny, George LaDuke, Thomas Mason, Solomon Gadbaw, William Como and John Como, were convicted, and are now in the lockup, their sentence having been held under advisement.

- June 9, 1929: The funeral of John Como, 65, (he was 71) who died at Yorkville Tuesday, (June 4, 1929) was held Thursday (June 6) at the home of Fred B. Vallance, 923 Morris Street. Rev. L. P.

The funeral was from the home of Fred Vallance, 923 Morris St. in Ogdensburg, and interment will be made in Ogdensburg Cemetery.

- Ogdensburg Cemetery index reads "Como John - located at Range 20 Lot 18." There is no stone at that location. Earl Como remembers the funeral being in the Ogdensburg Cemetery when he was very young. He said he recalls a small hill being nearby.

- John was a laborer. Earl Como wrote that his grandfather was very acrobatic, and was an alcoholic. He went to his daughter Leona's to live in Feb. 1930 when his health was very poor and died four months later. John's obituary gives his age as 61, but he must have been 71 or 72 at the time of his death. The fact that he was born in late 1857 or early 1858 is shown by all the census records and his marriage record.

122 - 1860 U.S. census: Ogdensburg 2nd ward: Timothy Fogarty is 57 years old and is working as a carter. He was born in Ireland. He is living with his wife Martha (49) and children Michael (23), William (19), Margaret (15) and Bridget (10). Timothy and his wife were born in Ireland, all their children were born in Canada.

- 1870 U.S. census: Timothy is 61 years old and lives with his wife Martha (59) and son William (27) and wife Catherine (28) and their children.

- Ogdensburg City Directory, 1883-4: Fogarty Timothy, mail carrier, h 129 New York ave.

- Feb. 12, 1890: Last evening about five o'clock, Mr. Timothy Fogarty, the veteran mail messenger between Ogdensburg and Prescott, stepped from the steamer Plumb at the dock of the R. W. & 0. railroad, accompanied by Margaret McNally, widow of the late James Murphy, of Prescott. They proceeded to the Cathedral, where they were pronounced man and wife by Rev. Father Duffy, and at once took up their residence at Mr. Fogarty's old home on New York Avenue. All wish "Teddy" much joy.

- Dec. 19. 1894: Capt. Timothy Fogarty, of this city, is another veteran who has been in the U. S. mail service for the past thirty years. He leaves the Ogdensburg post office each day at 1:30 p.m., taking what Canadian mail there is for Preseott or to be distributed there. He returns at 5 p. m. bringing the mail from Prescott for this office. Although over seventy years of age, Capt. Fogarty is hearty and vigorous, as one can see illustrated daily by the ease with which he swings a fifty or one hundred pound bag upon his shoulder. The changes of administration do not affect Captain Fogarty. Father Time alone will be able to call for his discharge, and the Captain, with his steady habits and iron constitution, is standing him a good battle.

- Ogdensburg city death record: Timothy Fogarty died Jan. 22, 1904. Father was Michael Fogarty (born Ireland)
and mother was nancy Ryan (born Ireland.)
- St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, Ogdensburg, NY: Gravestone reads "Timothy Fogarty Born Dec 25, 1809 The Parish of Drumbane, County Tipperary, Ireland. (Drumbane is a small village about four miles outside the town of Thurles. There is a joint parish called Drumbane-Upperchurch. Otherwise: Townland: Drumbane; County: Tipperary, N.R.; Barony: Kilnamanagh Upper; Civil Parish: Moyaliff; PLU: Thurles; Province: Munster.)

- Jan, 1904: Timothy Fogarty, one of Ogdensburg's oldest and best known citizens, died yesterday at the advanced age of 94. Mr. Fogarty had been in declining health due to old age. He was born in Ireland and left the old country with his young wife about sixty-five years ago (1839.) They took up their residence in Canada for a number of years and then crossed to this side, settling in Ogdensburg about fifty years ago (1854.) Mr. Fogarty had charge of a gang of hewers when the Rome, Watertown and Ogdensburg railroad was being opened and was a hewer himself. He was best known as the U. S. mail carrier between this city and Prescott, a position he held for more than thirty years. During that time and in his later years he became known to almost every person in the city. He was a fine type of the old fashioned Irishman, a type that is fast disappearing. He was of powerful physique and notwithstanding his age, when he was on the mail route, he was out in all kinds of weather, never misssing a day by reason of sickness or other causes. Mr. Fogarty was a bluff, kindhearted, jovial man, a faithful servant of the government and was much respected by all. He retained his faculties to the end, and looked forward every day to the daily paper, which he read carefully. In this way he kept abreast of the times. His hearing was slightly impaired, but his eyesight was remarkable for a man of his years. Hie was fond of relating stories of his early days in Ireland and was a great favorite among the young. Mr. Fogarty was twice married, his second wife dlying several years ago. He leaves a son, William Fogarty, and a daughter, Mrs. A. A. Paquette

- The funeral of Timothy Fogarty was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock from St. Mary's cathedral, and a requiem
mass was celebrated today.

Notes:
- Timothy moved from Ireland around 1835 to Canada. Around 1852-1854 he moved from Canada to the United States. He worked as a foreman when the log road from Ogdensburg to Black Lake was being constructed. He worked for many years as a mail carrier between Ogdensburg and Prescott.

- Obit from 1904 Advance News: Timothy Fogarty died at his home on New York Ave., aged 94 years. He was born in Ireland and came to Ogdensburg to reside about 50 years ago (which would make that appr. 1854.) For thirty years he carried the IT mail between this city and Prescott and was well known throughout the city. The funeral was held from St. Mary's Cathedral. A son, William Fogarty, and a daughter, Mrs. V. A. Pauquette, surviv

- Feb. 13, 1890 Advance News: Timothy Fogarty, mail carrier between this city and Prescott for many years, was married to Mrs. Matilda McNally on Tuesday, Rev. P. O. LaRose performing the marriage ceremony. Mr. Fogarty recently arrived at the inexperienced age of 80 years.

- Timothy Fogarty and Matilda Flood had child Michael Fogarty in 1836. St. Phillip's, Richmond, Ontario, has record: Thadeous Fogarty and Martha Flood had child no name, no date, about 1837 or 1838. The witnesses were John Tierney and Hanora Tierney. There are different witnesses from Michael, so this must refer to birth of William, though the years appear wrong since we have him born 1843. Other Fogarty births at St. Phillip's, Richmond, Ontario:
- Sept. 11, 1838, baptise Michael, born Sept. 2, of Bryan Fogarty and Bridget Headen.
- Feb. 2, 1838, baptize Catherine Mary, born. Jan. 14, 1838 to Daniel Fogarty and Roseanna Joint

- Philip, born Aug. 7, 1856 to Philip Fogarty and Anna Morrigham
- 1839: John Burke, born to Milo Burke and Mary Ann Fogarty
(Is it possible that Bryan, Daniel and Mary Ann are siblings of Timothy?)

(March, 2009: Poster to Genforum query on Timothy Fogarty and Martha Flood: My gggrandparents Daniel Fogarty and Nancy Flood were out of County Tipperary with similar birth years. Daniel ended up in Poultney, VT with his children and other Floods. Dont know if his wife died in Ireland. Fogarty is of course a common name in Tipperary. Flood being much rarer there.)

- April 15, 1926, Ogdensburg Journal: Charles Leflair, who has been living alone in a boat house on the Oswegatchie river, was saved from death by starvation or drowning yesterday by Patrolman Israel Gorrow. People residing in the Spring Street neighborhood had failed to see Laflair recently and the matter was brought to the attention of Patrolman Gorrow. He ascertained Laflair. who is an aged man (about 69 at the time of this story) had been missing three days and reported to John J. McDonall, day desk sergeant at police headquarters. Patrolman Gorrow was directed to investigate the case. The patrolman went to Spring Street and located the boathouse. It is just south of the Dinberg murder house. He secured a pair of rubber boots and plunged into the Oswegatchie River in order to reach the place, the rising waters of the turbulent stream having isolated the boathouse some distance from the shore. Patrolman Gorrow finally succeeded in reaching the boathouse and forced his way inside. There on a bed downstairs he found LaFlair. The aged man was extremely ill and plainly exhausted. He had not had a bit of food in three days. While he lay on the bed during the days that he was missing his strength kept ebbing away and starvation seemed inevitable. The rising waters of the Oswegatchie were gradually creeping upward all the time and as the patrolman entered the boathouse he saw that the water was lapping the springs of the bed. The surface of the river was reported to have risen 6 inches more last night due to the high wind and the rainfall. The man protested as Patrolman Gorrow lifted him and started to take him ashore. He did not appear to realize his danger or greatly care. He was finally placed safely on land and a relative, William Ploof, was notified. Laflair was taken to the Ploof home where he was given medical care and light nourishment. A. W. Vilas, superintendent of the police, was notified and will investigate the case today. Mr. Ploof states that he is not in a position to care for the aged man.

(William Ploof was Charles LaFlair's brother-in-law, married to his sister Susan LaFlair.)

Died at Roosevelt Hospital
Unattended he went to New York and arrived there in a dazed condition. He was found by a brother Odd Fellow, helpless and unable to tell who he was or whence he came. A search of his clothing discovered his identity.
- Alfred F. Thayer's dead and his end came under pathetic circumstances. At the Roosevelt Hospital in NY whence he had gone alone to secure such medicines as he believed would restore him to health, away from family and friends dear to his heart. Always cheerful, kind and pleasant.
Ten years ago Alfred was considered one of the best barbers in the town, but an injury he received on his head previously evidently affected his brain and caused him to have dizzy and fainting spells. On account of this difficulty he was forced to retire from the barber business and then it was that he entered the employ of the New York Central Railroad Company.
Until four months ago Alfred had enjoyed fairly good health and it was believed by his friends that he was slowly but surely recovering from his malady. At that time, however, he had a severe attack of his former trouble but recovering from it, he went back to his work at the depot when he was again stricken. It was then that he decided upoing going to New York and submitting himself to specialists on brain diseases in some of the well known hospitals in the metropolis and the Roosevelt was the one decided upon.
It was about 10 days ago that he left his home for New York in search of health. He went unattended believing that it would be unnecessary for anyone to accompany him. Undoubtedly the jar of the train cuased him to have a relapse for when he arrived in New York he was in a dazed condition, unable to tell his name or from whence he came. He drifted with the crowed into 42nd street and after a time entered a jewelry store, where a brother Odd Fellow tended him. He was taken to an institution and there from letters in his pocket it was learned that he was bound for Roosevelt Hospital, where he was taken and subsequently died. It was found he was suffering from cerebral abscess and that there was no possibility of his recovery. He died Saturday morning. May 4, 1907.
