  • Notes 
    • Masonic rites for Orla C. Potter, 76, former Pulaski business man, who died early Friday morning at the Crandall nursing home in Whitney Point, were held from the Taylor funeral home at 8 p.m. Saturday evening. Funeral services were held from the funeral home on Sunday at 2:30 p.m. with the Rev. F.L. Anderson, pastor of the Baptist church officiating. Interment was made in the Pulaski cemetery.

      Mr. Potter had been a patient at the nursing home for the past two months, and had been in poor health the past five years.

      Surviving are two sons, Miles Potter of Niagara Falls with whom he had made his home for a number of years, and Grant Potter of Fulton; and a sister, Mrs. Frank [Laura G.] Walton, Watertown.

      A daughter, Adelaide, died a number of years ago.

      Mr. Potter was born in Orwell on May 21, 1874, a son of Grant and Corsanda Potter who were among the first settlers in this area. He attended the Orwell school and after working in Malone for a time was employed in the Frank Walton department store in Pulaski for several years. Later he operated a farm on the Syracuse road and after selling the farm became a partner in the clothing business with the late George Lindo.

      He served as welfare commissioner for the town of Richland for several years, was a member of the Pulaski Baptist church, a 60 year member of Pulaski Masonic lodge No. 415 F.& A.M. and of the Shrine in Watertown. His wife, the former Minnie Patch of Depauville, died many years ago
