Henry Jubin, 87, who enlisted in the Union army when he was not quite 16 and whose military record was outstanding during the Civil War, died last night at 17 Court Street, where he had made his home in recent years. Mr. Jubin was born in Belford, France, April 15, 1847. When he was 9 years old, he came to this country and with his parents settled at Cold Brook, Herkimer County.

     "Ned Buntline", pseudonym of Edward Zone Carroll Judson. American adventurer writer and lecturer. Born 1822 in Philadelphia, PA. As a boy, he ran away and entered the government service as apprentice on board a man-o-war and in 1835 he rescued the drowning occupants of a small boat in the East River, New York Harbor. For his bravery, he was commissioned a midshipman in the U.S. Navy by President Van Buren. Resigning four years later, he took part in the Seminole Wars, and later in the Northwest fur trade. In 1846 he was lynched for a murder, but secretly cut down alive and released. He then went to New York City where he established Ned Buntline's Own, a sensational weekly in which he published not only his own novels, but also stories exposing gambling, prostitution and drinking in New York City. In 1849 he was indicted for inciting the Astor Place riot through the columns of his paper. He was sentenced to a fine and a year in prison. Ned traveled west where he met William Cody and then wrote a series of dime store novels based on "Buffalo Bill" Cody's life. In 1850 he was living in NYC where he listed his occupation as editor. In 1860 he can be found on the Indian Lake, Hamilton County, NY census with the occupation of Author. Edward Z. C. Judson enlisted 25 September 1862 at Mt. Pleasant, NY at the age of 40 [though he gave 27 as his age] and was mustered in as Private, Co. K, 1st NY Mounted Rifles. He was promoted to Sergeant 24 October 1862 but reduced in rank to Private on 12 February 1863. On 29 August 1863 he was transferred into Co. A, 22nd Veteran Reserve Corps. The date and method of his discharge was not given. He can be found on the 1870 and 1880 censuses in New York City. Edward Z.C. Judson, AKA Ned Buntline, died in Samford, Delaware County, NY on 16 July 1886.
     According to the author of Township 34, Ned first arrived in Hamilton County in 1856 and made his way to what was then known as Round Lake. He purchased the place, called it Eagle's Nest and re-named the lake, "Eagle Lake". He took up residence in the spring of 1857 and spent most of his time for the next five years there. He hired a housekeeper named Eva (sometimes known as Maria) Gardiner, a North Creek resident, and soon after, married her. She died in childbirth on 4 March 1860. Both she and her child were buried at Eagle Nest, but years later, W.W. Durant had their remains removed to a cemetery at Blue Mountain Lake. He placed a bronze tablet over them that reads:
"Here lie the remains of Eva Gardiner, wife of E.Z.C. Judson (Ned Buntline), together with her infant. She died at Eagle's Nest March 4, 1860, in the nineteenth year of her age, and was buried where a constant desecration of her grave was inevitable, to avoid which the bodies were removed and this monument erected in 1891 by William West Durant."
"For the benefit of Ned and his publishers, a United States post office was established in Ned's cabin at Eagle Nest on June 6, 1860....On August 4, 1863, the postmaster General announced the discontinuance of the post office..."on account of its being unnecessary and failure to render quarterly reports."
     Ned was married again on 2 November 1860 in Sing Sing [now Ossining] to Kate J. Meyers. Immediately after the ceremony, he took his new wife to Eagle Nest. There, in 1861 or 1862, Kate gave birth to a baby girl, christened Carrollita, later known as Carrie. Her wilderness home seems not to have agreed with Kate, and soon after the child's birth, she left the area. Ned stayed on alone at Eagle Nest until enlisting for service in the Civil War. He never returned to his Adirondack home, which he sold in 1867.
