HARMON, CHAUNCEY - Chauncey
Harmon, perhaps the oldest newspaper publisher in Miami county, died at 2
o'clock Sunday morning at the home of Mr. and Mrs. M. K. Gantz. Death was
due to infirmities from which he had been suffering for several years. Mr.
Harmon was born in Clarkson, N. Y. about 85 years ago. In 1852 he married
Miss Anna Eaton. He came to Troy over half a century ago and in 1855 he
founded the Troy Times which he conducted for many years. Later he
operated a printing plant but for the past several years had spent his time
looking after his farm and other property of which he had accumulated
considerably. The funeral services were held at 2 o'clock Tuesday
afternoon from the Gantz home, with interment at Riverside cemetery.
