- 1901 Ogdensburg Journal: John D. Laflair of this city, a brakeman on the local freight which arrives in this city afternoons from Utica, was badly injured by falling from the top of a boxcar yesterday. But for his coolness and pluck he might have been killed. The train had attained a speed of thirty or forty miles an hour between Theresa and Philadelphia. Laflair was standing at the end of the boxcar when it lurched and he was thrown forward. The next car was a gondola and in falling, Laflair's head came in contact with the brake. He grabbed the brake rod and held on desperately while bleeding from many wounds in the head and face. The conductor saw Laflair fall and signalling for the engineer to stop ran to his comrade's assistance and pulled him up out of danger. The engineer applied the brake so quickly that the train slid along on the rails several feet before stopping. The wounded trainman was placed in the caboose and when this city was reached a physician, was called. He found it necessary to. take several stitches in a cut across the forehead. The nose was broken and Laflair was otherwise injured, though not seriously. He is about 30 years old and is married and lives on Albany Avenue.

The goods consisted of yarn, socks and pants. The three men arrested were James Brenno, Willie Brenno and Earl Como. The police had been working on this case for the past few days and on visiting the haunts of these men and not finding them around, became suspicious. Saturday morning Offocer Amo started looking for Brenno. When a policeman came to Brenno's home, he spied his man about two blocks away and finally overtook him. He was taken in a car to the police station. After talking with Brenno a subpoena was issued for Como. Como agreed to appear in the afternoon and when he did he was locked up.
Then the officers found Willie Brenno and arrested him. After searching the premises of Como, some of the missing articles were found packed away inside a couch and a large Morris chair, more of the goods were found in the attic of Brenno's house. These goods were all brought to the station by the police. All the articles have not been found. The men were questioned by Assistant District Attorney Ingram to find out if there were any more mixed up in the case, and to find out where the rest of the missing articles were. As the defendants are charged with breaking car seals, which is an offense against the federal law, the case may be transferred to the U. S. Court.

- Tuesday, Oct. 2, 1917: William Brenno, James Brenno his brother, and Earl Como of Ogdensburg, were jointly indicted for burglary third degree and petit larceny. Pleas of guilty were entered by the Brennos and one of not guilty by Como.

- October, 1917: October court term closes. Earl Como hails from Ogdensburg and is under indictment for burglary in the third degree and petit larceny, and the district attorney said that his wife needed him at home, and that he was willing that the case go over and he be allowed to go on his own recognizance until next term, which was done.

- Oct. 14, 1930: The case against Earl Como, arrested for disorderly conduct, was dismissed on lack of evidence.

- Fall, 1931: Earl Como, city, was arrested this morning on a charge of public intoxication. He will be arraigned Monday.

- Jan. 25, 1932: Earl Como, 39, of Ogdensburg, who has been free on bail since last month when the grand jury indicted him for burglary, third degree and petit larceny, was surrendered at the county jail Saturday night by his bondsman, Joseph Sovel. Sovel posted $500 bond guaranteeing Como's appearance at the arraignment term today, but on Saturday, he decided to discontinue his financial support. Como is the father of Richard Como, Ogdensburg youth who was struck and killed by an Ogdensburg driver several weeks ago.

- Tues., Jan. 26, 1932: The usual term of county court was held the 25th. In the following case, pleas of not guilty were entered: Earl Como, burglary third degree and petit larceny, committed at Ogdensburg. Robert S. Waterman assigned.

- Feb. 2, 1932: Earl Como, indicted for burglary third degree and petit larceny entered a plea of guilty to petit jarceny, the District Attorney stating that the grand Jury recommended leniency. Robert S. Waterman represented him by assignment. He said he was all right when he was not drinking, but that had been most of the time for two or three years. Como has previously been convicted of a felony and consequently, had he pleaded to the indictment would have got a long term. He was placed on probation for three years.

- Feb. 2, 1932 - The trial of Earl Fleming, Ogdensburg, driver of the car which struck and killed 12-year-old Richard Como in that city several weeks ago will certainly take place in County Court here this week, as a result of Judge Dolan's action yesterday in denying the motion of Fleming's attorney to put the case over the term. Earl Como, father of the dead youth, who was indicted for burglary, third degree and petit larceny by the same grand jury that Indicted Fleming for leaving the scene of an accident without reporting, pleaded guilty here Monday afternoon to the petit larceny charge and was placed on probation for two years. The theory that the facts brought out during the arraignment of the dead boy's father might influence trial jurors who were sitting in the courtroom at the time, was the basis of Attorney Edmund FitzGerald's motion to put the case over the term. Fleming's lawyer also sought to delay trial of his client hy making a motion for examination of the grand jury minutes taken at the time of Fleming's indictment. The motion was denied. Mr. FitzGerald claimed there was a discrepancy in the testimony as to whether or not Fleming reported to Chief H. S. Myers within an hour following the accident. No date has been set for the Fleming trial but it probably will not be reached before Thursday.

March 5, 1932: Earl Como of this city, on probation for a conviction of burglary, third degree and petit larceny was admitted to the St. Lawrence County jail at Canton Friday for alleged violation of the probation. Under indictment for burglary third degree and petit larceny, he was permitted to go on his own recognizance and his case sent over the term on the recommendation of the district attorney who asserted that his wife needed him at home very badly. (John Earl Como's diary mentions that in 1932 he visited his cousin Leona Thayer at 622 Avondale Ave. in Toledo, Ohio. This is Delia Thayer's sister and she is included among the children of Robert and Harriet living in Toledo in the 1880 census.)

- June 15, 1933, Ogdensburg Journal: Canton, June 15 - The jury was unable to agree in the case of Elizabeth Como as administratrix of the estate of Richard Como against Earl Fleming after a trial yesterday in county court. At 5:30 o'clock the jury reported it was unable to agree and County Judge James C. Dolen sent it back with instructions to try and arrive at a verdict by 6. When that time came, the panel announced it was hopelessly divided. Mrs. Como, mother of the 13-year-old Ogdensburg boy who was fatally injured while coasting down Ford Avenue at Main Street, Ogdensburg, early the evening of Jan. 3, 1932, was represented by Attorney John Livingston while Attorney Edmund FitzGerald handled the case for the defendant. At the conclusion of the plaintiffs presentation Attorney FitzGerald moved for dismissal of the action on the ground that the plaintiff had failed to make out a case. Motion was denied whereupon Mr. FitzGerald declined to offer an evidence and let the case go to the jury. Witnesses for the plaintiff were Mrs. Como, Edward Kiah, Earl Como, Salina Recore, Paul Recore and Miss Irene Slamsky, all of Ogdensburg. The boys told of sliding down Ford Avenue with Richard Como while Mr. and Mrs. Recore testified about hearing a crash and going to the scene and finding the Como boy seriously injured. Miss Slamsky testified about seeing the boy and the car go by but did not witness the crash.
Police Chief Herbert S. Myers of Ogdensburg told of talking with Fleming at the police station during which the driver of the car declared he was afraid to report the accident because of a previous crash and believed he would lose his license to drive. Attorney FitzGerald brought out the fact that there was no city ordinance allowing sliding on any street in Ogdensburg and that there was no light on the sled. He quoted highway statutes relative to use of streets for sledding.
 
Como, John Earl (I2121)
 
207 - 1900 census: Ogdensburg: John Thayer, barber, born Nov. 1871, age 28, born in Michigan, resides with Delia, b. April, 1872, 28, in Ohio, with daughter Leona, 5, b. June, 1894 in Ohio and son Alfred, 3, b. June, 1896 in Ohio. Living at 85 King St. At 83 King St. is John Thayer's brother-in-law, John W. Como, 42, (who married John's sister Delia, who died the previous November) and John's mother, Marinda Turrill, 65, and his children Blanche, Earl, and Leona.

- In 1910, they're back in Toledo, without John. Living in Ward 8 are Delia Thayer, 37, head of the family, Leona, 16; Alfred, 14, and Mary, 7, with Mary shown as being born in Ohio but that can't be correct since she was baptized in Ogdensburg. That means they had to be back by 1903. So did John come with them?

- In 1920, Delia is shown married to John Keating and they reside in Toledo, living with George Baxendale, who is married to Delia's daughter Leona. John Keating is 42, born Ohio as was his father; Delia, 47, born Ohio. The census shows two children named Keating: Adolph, 22, b. Ohio, and Mary Keating, 18, b. Ohio. They in fact are Alfred and Mary Thayer, and I suspect John Keating is in fact John Thayer, since no John Keating is found in the 1910 census in Ohio.

- In 1930 John "Keating" is no longer with Delia in Toledo. It's Delia Keating, 55; son Alfred Thayer, 33; Delia's daughter Leona, now 35 and her husband George Baxendale, 36, both of whom live with them in Toledo. George is head of the family. He was born in Ohio, with his father born in England and his mother in Ohio. Delia Keating says she's 55. Delia indicates that she is not widowed, but divorced. However, John "Keating" or Thayer is not be found elsewhere in the 1930 census.

- Record from New York County Marriages shows the marriage on July 21, 1911 in St. Lawrence County, of Fanny Sayers, age 38, daughter of Peter Sayers and Ruth Santans, to, Solomon LaFlair, age 30, son of John LaFlair and Caroline Bushey.

- 1940: John S. LaFlair, 60, resides 811 S. Water St., with Fan, 65.

- The Journal, July 25, 1941: The death of Mrs. Fannie LaFlair, wife of Solomon LaFlair, occurred July 24, 1941. She was born Sept. 24, 1874 at Heuvelton, of Peter and Catherine Leatherroot. She first married Peter Sayer and there were two children by that marriage, Mrs. Samuel Green Waterman and Paul Sayer of Watertown. She then married Solomon LaFlair and there were two children by that marriage, Mrs. John Mashaw of Ogdensburg and Mrs. Maurice Lavancha of Watertown. (Note that this obit states that Fanny LaFlair was the daughter of Peter Leatherroot and had two children by her first husband, Peter Sayer. However, her marriage record to Solomon LaFlair lists her father as Peter Sayers. It is likely that she had two children out of wedlock and named them Sayers, which was her last name.)

- Ogdensburg Journal, Sept. 12, 1928: Harvey LaFlair Claims Policemen And Woman Forced Him To Wed... Wants Marriage to Emily Beique 17 Years Ago Annulled on Grounds That She Was Insane and Incompetent When Ceremony Was Performed - Marriage License Found Defective.
CANTON, Sept. 11 - Testimony charging that two local policemen aided an Ogdensburg woman in forcing Harvey LaFlair, Ogdensburg, to marry her insane daughter here 17 years ago was heard in Supreme court here Monday. One of the policemen who Is alleged to have aided in forcing Harvey LaFlair of Ogdensburg to marry Emily Beique, is dead, and the other has since left the force. The mother-in-law was later committed to an insane asylum, and has since died.
The action, which was brought by Attorney P. K. Moreland to have the marriage of LaFlair and his wife annulled, also involves the fact that the marriage was performed by an Ogdensburg clergyman, who has also been committed to an insane asylum. According to the testimony sworn to by three Ogdcnshurg persons who took the stand yesterday, Harvey LaFlair was forced into his marriage with Emily Beique under peculiar circumstances.
LaFlair was 21 years old at the time and his wife was 30. Harvey LaFlair had been absent from. Ogdensburg for more than a year prior to March 1, 1911, it was testified. He had met the Beique woman but once in his life, and that was about the time he had left Ogdensburg in 1910.
When LaFlair arrived in Ogdensburg in the spring of 1911, he was asked to come to the house of Mrs. Beique, according to the testimony. Thinking nothing of the invitation as unusual, LaFlair went to the Beique home on this particular day. When he arrived at the door, Mrs. Beique invited him into the house and he unsuspectingly went in, it is charged.
Mrs. Beique's daughter, Emily, was also in the house. After some conversation, Mrs. Beique excused herself and left.She was gone for about half an hour when she suddenly returned with two policemen. A clergyman was also on hand. LaFJair was told that he had to marry the woman, then and there, it is alleged. The woman was an expectant mother, and cowed by the presence of the two policemen, LaFlair consented to the marriage, fearing arrest without time for explanation. Two other men had also entered the house and acted as witnesses as the clergyman proceeded with a "ceremgny," which in. itself was not legal, it was asserted by Attorney Moreland.
The marriage license which was produced in court by Attorney Moreland does not have the city clerk's signature upon it nor the signature of either of the parties. The marriage certificate does not bear the signature of the clergyrman or the witnesses. At the conclusion of the ceremony, LaFlair grabbed his hat, and not only left his new mother-in-law, and his bride, but left Ogdensburg as well, and remained away from the city for four years.
LaFlair was induced to return to Ogdensburg at the representation of his pastor, who wrote him that it was his duty to come back to the city and take care of his wife and the child. LaFlair, moved by the letter, accecded to the pastor's wishes, and arrived back in Ogdensburg. He joined Mrs. Beique, went to a. church, had the marriage blessed and "adopted" the child which had been born three days after the wedding. LaFlair lived with the woman until 1918, when she was committed to the Newark State School for Mental Defectives, at Newark. Since that time, a communication received from the Institution by Attorney Moreland, informs him that examination, showed that Mrs. LaFlair had the mentality of a six-year-old child. It was testified that the neighbors regarded Mrs. LaFlair as being crazy ever since she was a young child.
Mrs. John McPherson, one of the witnesses, testified that she had known the woman since childhood and that she was a mental defective in her opinion. All through her life she had performed many irrational acts and had always been incapable of telling time, counting money, etc. Neither could Mrs. LaFlair do any housekeeping and was seldom seen doing anything in that line around the home.
Before a summons could be served upon the woman at the school where she is confined, Attorney Moreland had to procure an order from the court, permitling such an action, And because the defendant was incompetent, the court ordered Alfred Wells to act as special guardian for the trial.
After the case was presented to the jury yesterday, the judge directed the clerk to write out the
testimony and requested Attorney Moreland to submit the findings. Decision in the case will be handed down later. The action, which has been brought to annul the marriage has been based on the grounds that the defendant, Mrs. LaFlair, was insane and incompetent when the marriage ceremony was performed.

- Ogdensburg Journal, Sept. 14, 1928: Headline: Witness to LaFlair Wedding Tells Her Version of Affair; Mrs. Kate Walling, whose name appears on wedding certificate filed at city clerk's office, claims Harvey LaFlair urged Mrs. Mary Beique to be allowed to marry her daughter.
Story: Another witness came forward yesterday to give her version of the marriage ceremony between Emily Beique and Harvey LaFlair 17 years ago (in 1911.) This witness, Mrs. Kate Walling, 923 Congress St., is Emily Beique's sister and, with another sister, Mrs. Samuel Boyer, now of Syracuse, a signer of the marriage license. Mrs. Walling asserts that not only was LaFlair not forced into the marriage by two local policemen, as testimony at trial in supreme court at Canton Monday declared, but actually insisted upon it. The marriage license which was produced in court does not have the city clerk's signature, nor the signature of either of the parties. The marriage certificate does not bear the signature of the clergyman or the witnesses. A marriage license in the city clerk's office, however, has the signatures of the witnesses, one of them Kate Walling.
According to Mrs. Walling, LaFlair came to Emily Beique's mother and begged her to let him marry the girl, declaring that he was the cause of her trouble. Mrs. Beique, after some hesitation agreed, and on March 1, 1910, they were married at her home. According to court testimony and stories widely published, LaFlair had met the girl but once in his life, a year before his marriage with her. Mrs. Walling asserts that he is a cousin to her and had known her since childhood.
For a year after the marriage, LaFlair stayed with Mrs. Beique. A son was born to Mrs. LaFlair on March 24, 1910. At the end of the year LaFlair left Ogdensburg, staying away four years. During his absence, Mrs. Beique and Mrs. Walling cared for his wife, but when the girl was taken ill with influenza, they begged LaFlair to take her. He answered, according to Mrs. Walling, that he would throw her out if they brought her to his home. As a result, the woman was placed in the hands of Mrs. John McPherson. Admitting that her sister was a mental defective, Mrs. Walling said that her mother firmly believed that LaFlair should be given a divorce, but for some reason not disclosed, he objected.
It was finally decided, Mrs. Walling said, that the best plan would be to put the woman in an institution and accordingly, she was placed in the Newark School for Mental Defectives at Newark. When LaFlair brought his suit for annulment, his lawyer obtained an order from the court naming Alfred Wells to act as special guardian for the woman. On Sept. 10, the judge directed the clerk to write out the testimony, and a decision in the case will be reached later.

- Syracuse American, Sept. 23, 1928: Article about Harvey LaFlair trying to have his marriage to Emily LaFlair annulled, and get custody of their child. There is a copy of the marriage certificate in the article. Emma LaFlair lists her name as Emily Beique, and her parents as Napolean Beique and Mary Polly. Their wedding was witnessed by Kate Walling and Francis O'Hagan. She lists her age as 25 at the time of the marriage on March 1, 1911. The child's name was Lawrence LaFlair and he would have been born in 1911. At the time of the article, Emily was living in the New York State Custodial Asylum for Feeble Minded Women, at Newark, NY, between Rochester and Syracuse. Emily was supposed to have been confined there beginning in 1918. At that time the baby went with the father.

Todd, living at 900 W. Henry Ave., who moved to Tampa in 1919 from Kentucky. Maud's birth certificate was dated 23 June 1941, which listed Mary Maud Como as being born in Ogdensburg, N.Y. on 28 Aug 1881.

- Maude's father William was a salesman who frequently took sales trips to the western part of the U.S. He was probably on one of those trips when the census was taken, and probably had his sister Vina keep an eye on his daughterwhile he was out of town. Maude worked as a telephone operator in Ogdensburg before her marriage to Lewis Todd.
