    • Drowned in Ontario Bay
      EMERY AND FRANK TRYON BROTHERS
      Out Looking After Nets Sunday Night - Fairled to Return - Floundered Boat Found

      Emery and Frank Tryon have been missing since Sunday night when they took a boat and went out on Ontario Bay (North Pond). These men are well known fishermen, prominent residents and brothers. Emery Tryon, who is some 65 years of age has been a life long fisherman and for many years has owned and resided on the Lake Shore farm in the northwestern part of the town of Richland on what was previously known as the Twitchell place. It is a sightly place and faces Lake Ontario on a bluff just north of the Deer Creek marsh. Previously Mr. Tryon resided on Lake Erie for a number of years and before that in the western portion of the town of Sandy Creek. Both men are sons of the late Alonzo Tryon, Mr. Emory Tryon being the oldest son and Frank the youngest. For many years the latter has been proprietor of the Outlet house and only the other day said the house had enjoyed one of the best seasons this year.

      Sunday night was rough and now those familiar with the moods of Old Ontario wonder that these men who knew her so well should have ventured out that night. Yet such was the confidence of their families in their ability to weather most any gale and negotiate a landing that there was no apprehension as to their safety till they failed to return Monday morning. Then the shores were searched in order to obtain some clew, but none was found.

      Tuesday the wind was off shore and the crew from the coast guard station and several other boats were manned and search made for the missing men. On the Carl Island Shore was found their paddle and oar and a fish box; to the westward half way between the island and the sand dune known as Sawtooth was found a steel skiff with one end out of the water and the other anchored to a net; somehow the Tryons were thrown into the water. Every effort is being made to recover the bodies and the bay is being dragged constantly as the weather permits.

      Mr. Emery Tryon is survived by his wife and several brothers and sons and daughters. He was highly esteemed by all who knew him and had devoted many years to sturgeon fishing. Frank Tryon was not married and with his mother, Mary S., ran the Outlet house one of the finest located of the several resort properties in this section. It is the oldest and longer than the present generation can recall has been the Laek Ontario resort of this section. Emery and Frank Tryon were half brothers.
      The Syracuse Post-Standard this morning gives this version of the finding of the boat:

      Late Tuesday afternoon the Big Sandy crew discovered the vote of the two fishermen at the mouth of the channel fully two miles north of the Outlet house, and the oars were found floating in the pond, about a mile from shore

      From Sandy Creek news., November 28, 1918, Page 1

      TRYON BOYS FOUND
      Bodies Recovered in Ontario Bay-Double Funeral at the Outlet House Friday.
      Just before the News went to Press on Wednesday afternoon word came to hand that the body of Frank Tryon had been recovered. It was found within 10 or 20 feet from where the boat upset half a mile east of the sand dunes and half a mile south of Carl Island. The recovery was made about 3 o'clock by the Big Sandy Coast Guard crew who had been dragging the bay that day, as well as the previous day. The men in the boat which recovered the body of Frank Tryon were: Fayette Noble, No., 1, J. W. Dutcher, L. F. Broadhagen. In the coast guard boat on the previous day were: Capt. R. G. Mrton, Gordon Davis, Dennis Colwell, Andrew Cast, Clark Potts.
      The body was taken to the Outlet house and Coroner Hollis notified:

      The testimony taken by Coroner Hollis showed that Frank and Emery Tryon went out on Ontario Bay at 7 o'clock Sunday night and that the wind blew a gale from the southwest. The watch on the person of Frank Tryon stopped at 8:17 which is thought to be about the time of the accidental drowning by those familiar with all the circumstances. On Frank Tryon's person were found three wallets in which were $258.97.

      Thursday morning about 9 a.m. the body of Emery Tryon was recovered near that of his brother. He had on oil skins which made it rather difficult for the grappling hooks to secure a hold. Jay Lindsey and Emery Tryon's son, Milford O. Tryon were in the boat that made the recovery.

      Emery Tryon is survived by his wife and five sons, Elmer of Richland, Milford O. of Sandy Creek, Ray C. of Texas, Stephen of Huron, Ohio, Herman of Sandy Creek who is in the Coast Guard service at Ft. Niagara and four daughters, Mrs. Grace Beers of Conneaut, Ohio; Ella, wife of Gleason Weed of Ellisburg; Miss Anna Tryon and Alice, wife of Clarence C. Edwards, who reside at the Emery Tryon home.

      The funeral of the brothers was largely attended at the Outlet House on Friday, REb. B. A. Walton of Spragueville, a former pastor of the Goodenough church officiating.

      Emery and Frank Tryon were half brothers, sons of Olonzo [sic] Tryon. Their grandfather, Levi Tryon, settled in the northwestern part of the town of Richland about 1800 on the farm owned in later years by Wellington Tryon. He came from Oneida county. The family has owned the shores of Lake Ontario for many years and have always been active fishermen. Emery Tryon owned 300 acres of Deer Creek marsh besides 200 acres of hard land adjoining.
      The boat they went out in was a wooden boat not steel as reported and was 16 feet overall according to the testimony of Fred and Earl Tryon who saw them go out on the pond the night their boat foundered.

      When found this boat was on end with 6 or 8 inches of the bow sticking out of the water while the other end was embeded [sic] in the mud. Frank Tryon was buried beside his father in Pulaski cemetery and Emery Tryon was laid to rest in Woodlawn cemetery in Sandy Creek.
