  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, September 7, 1876 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Casket - Wyman - In Orwell, September 4th, 1876, Perley Wyman, aged 86 years, 5 months and 20 days. The deceased was born May 15th, 1796, and it has been a resident of Orwell for many years. Mrs. L. A. Gaylord, of this village, is the daughter of the deceased.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, September 14, 1876 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Obituary - The deceased, Perley Wyman, was a native of Connecticut. He was born May 15, 1790, and Woodstock, Windham County, and died at his residence in Orwell, Oswego County, New York, September 4, 1876, in the 87th year of his age. His father, with a large family, moved into this state and settled in Cazenovia. His father, however, soon died, and Perley being the oldest son, the interests of this large household felt into his hands, which demanded his special attention for some years. Indeed, his mother and other members of the family looked to him for counsel and support while he lived. He was married to Olive Dresten, June 23, 1816, who passed on before to the grave some seven years ago. This union was blessed with twelve children, seven of whom are still living, five sons and two daughters. He moved into Orwell, Oswego County March 29, 1817, where he resided until his death. In 1819, while setting a gun in a cornfield, it was accidentally discharged, the contents passing through his knee, requiring amputation. It is said fortunate favors the brave. In 1817 he experienced religion under the labors of Rev. Abraham Leppett, a Methodist itinerant. Hence he was a member of the M. E. Church 59 years, and until increasing infirmities deprived him of the means of grace, was a consistent member of the church. He purchased, paid for, and cleared up 168 acres of land, on which he erected good buildings, with other improvements, which remain to tell of his skill in industry while living. As a citizen, he was esteemed and respected. This appears from the repeated gifts or offices bestowed upon him by the inhabitants of his town. He was Constable and collector several years. He was successively assessor, Commissioner and justice of the peace. This last office he held 15 years, besides looking after the interests of the common schools of his town. His last sickness was very severe and protracted, being much of the time deprived of his reason, but, during the lucid intervals, patient, trusting and hopeful. At length a long season of his probation as a member of the church and servant of the people is closed, and he will return no more to his house. M. H. Gaylord.
