Charles Clifford Willis of Coeymans 
Death of Dr. C. C. Willis
In the death of Charles C. Willis, which took place Sunday morning last, our village loses an enterprising and progressive citizen, one whose assistence and influence could always be relied on in furthering any project for the welfare of the community.
Dr. Willis’s final sickness was of short duration, lasting but one week, his complaint being pleurisy. He had but recently passed through a severe attack of the “la grippe” and his constitution was much broken. One week ago Saturday while on a business trip to Albany he contracted a severe cold which resulted fatally as above stated.
Dr. Willis was born in this village in 1854, had the advantage of a liberal school education, and having decided to follow the profession of dentistry, in 1874-5 fitted himself for this by a courde at the Philadelphia Dental College and Hospital of Oral Surgery. He began his practice in this village in the spring of 1875, but shortly after having an inducement offered him he entered as partner with the late Dr. Jackson in Coxsackie, where he remained until the fall of 1875 when he severed his connection with the frim and permanently located in Coeymans, where his skill and reputation for first-class work soon secured and retained for him a lucrative practice. In addition to his practice he has represented some of the best fire and life insurance companies, being at the time of his death one of the foremost solicitors and probably writing more policies than all the other agencies in the village combined. He has held the office of clerk of this road district for several years, being considered the most efficient of any who has held this position of trust. Mr. Willis was married Nov. 9, 1882, to Helen, only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. F. Leedings, and who with one son are left to mourn the loss of a kind and indulgent husband and father.
His funeral will be held from the M. E. church at two o’clock this afternoon.

Alexander E. Willis
March 2, 1895 of Coeymans, New York 
Alexander E. Willis, After an Illness of About a Month, Succumbs to Liver Complaint - A sketch of His Career.
Alexander E. Willis, one of the oldest and best known residents of Coeymans, died at 1:20 this morning, at the age of 82. He had enjoyed good health up to within a month or two ago, when his energies began to decline. The cause of his death was enlargement of the liver. He had been under the doctor's care, but few weeks. His mind remained clear and active to the last.
Mr. Willis was born at Ballston May 5, 1812. His early educational advantages were limited and when a boy began to support himself as a clerk. He went to New York and was employed by the largest dry goods house in the metropolis at the time - Wright, Wilson & Co. In 1839 he engaged in business in Troy, the establishment being located on Congress street, where Freer's bazaar is now conducted. In 1842 he went to Coeymans and entered the freighting business, the firm being known as Lawton, Willis, Calvin & Co. Later he became interested in a large grist mill there under the firm name of Willis & Sigsbee. They purchased large quanities of grain and ground it, having one of the most extensive plants in the state at the time. For the past 20 years he had not followed any active business occupation.
In 1841 he married Harriett Blaisdell, daughter of Levi Blaisdell of Coeymans, and a verteran of the revolutionary war. Eleven childern were born to them three of whom are still living - David Willis of Brooklyn, Wilbur Willis of Castleton and F.S. Willis of Coeymans. Mrs. Willis, who also survives, is a very intelligent and warm-hearted woman, having a host of friends. Her health is not good, having suffered from heart trouble for a number of years.
In early life Mr. Willis joined the M.E. church and had always been a warm supporter of reigious work. He always gave liberally and for a long time served as an official of the M.E. church at Coeymans. He was very proficient in ecclesiastical history and adhered to his faith, with a love akin to seal. He was a great admirer of the young, and always took a happy interest in the concerns of childern, with all of whom he was ever a favorite. Mr. Willis was for years the sole trustee of the public school at Coeymans, and to his untiring devotion to educational interests is largely due the excellent school that the village has enjoyed. He was a model school official and believed that the true foundation of a republic was the education of its citizens. He was a man of strong literary tastes and being an omniverous reader, he always kept in touch with current history. His stock of remeniscences was unexhaustible, and he was one of the most agreeable and congenial old gentlemen, whom one would care to meet. He was an uncompromising Republican and always took a lively interest in the success of the pary, although he would never accept office.
By his death the church, ??????? earnest worker and official, the community is deprived of a good neighbor and friend, and the family is bereft of a kind and loving husband, father and grandfather.
The funeral will be held on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the M. E. church at Coeymans.
