  • Notes 
    • December 26, 1886 - Sarah S. Bentley, age 78 years, Widow, Housekeeper, born in New York, Resident of Richland Township for 25 years, Daughter of Joel Seymour and Elizabeth Fellows, died in Pulaski paralysis of bowels.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 30, 1886 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - December 26, 1886, in this village, Mrs. Sarah Seymour Bentley, aged 78 years. The deceased was born in Stillwater, Saratoga County, New York September 2, 1808. When only fifteen years of age she was united with the Congregational Church of Stillwater during the pastorate of Rev. Dr. Finney, then widely known revivalist and subsequently president of Oberlin College, of which he was also one of the founders. She was married to Elias Bentley January 1, 1827, and in 1830 came with her husband to the adjoining town of Sandy Creek. She became the mother of nine children of whom seven now survive her. By the death of her husband, November 28, 1869, she was left a widow, but most tenderly and faithfully has she been cared for to the last hour of her life in the manifestation of devoted filial affection such as is rarely, if ever, surpassed. For most of the time during the last twenty years of her life the deceased was an invalid requiring almost constant care and attendance, but she preserved to the last a clearness and vigor of intellect which enabled her to make herself acquainted with the best religious literature of the day, in perusing which she spent most of her time. Although unable to engage personally in the work of moral advance, she never lost her interest in the world’s progress. In all her domestic relations as a sister, wife, mother and grandmother she was deeply and devotedly beloved. Her last days, although those of suffering, were soothed and cheered with profound trust in her Heavenly Father and Redeemer as manifested by frequent expressions of her longing to depart. In the last hour of the holy Sabbath she tranquilly passed to the everlasting Sabbath of heavenly rest and worship.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 6, 1887 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Death of Mrs. Bentley - The Waterford (Saratoga Co.,) Advertiser contains the following: "Mrs. Sarah Seymour, widow of the late Elias Bentley, died at Pulaski, New York, on Sunday last, December 26th, in the 79th year of her age. The deceased was a sister of W. T. Seymour, of this village, and mother of William H. Bentley, a former principal of the Waterford public schools, and also mother of Mrs. Frank Bentley Beadle, who was for years a teacher here. Mr. Seymour has the sympathy of a wide circle of friends in the loss of his beloved sister, although she had lived to a good old age and was waiting for that change which should take her from the loved ones on earth to the loved ones in heaven."
