  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 21, 1914 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Deacon E. M. Averill - Ephriam M. Averill was born in the village of Pulaski May 28, 1825. He was a member of an unusually large family of step-brothers and sisters and one own sister, all of whom he survived. In his early youth he assisted his father in the milling business, but when seventeen exchanged land on north Jefferson street for an un-cleared farm in Richland where he has since resided. When about twenty years of age he married Miss Amanda Babcock with whom he lived for about twenty-eight years when she was called to her heavenly home. To them were born three sons and three daughters: Edward, who died a few years ago; James, of Pennsylvania, and William, who, with Mrs. Kenyon, Mrs. Sheeley and Miss Addie Averill reside at Richland. Mr. Averill was a successful farmer, transforming his land from dense woods into a highly productive property. When about thirty-four years old he united with the Baptist church of Pulaski, of which he has been a faithful member for fifty-four years. During the greater part of that time he has served the church in the faithful and respected position of deacon. Mr. Averill passed peacefully to his heavenly rest on the evening of Tuesday, January 13, and was buried from his late home on the following Friday afternoon. The funeral services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. E. A. Rogers, and interment was made in the family plot in Richland cemetery. In the death of Mr. Averill the community loses one of its oldest and most respected citizens; a man of Christian character, of sound and unwavering Christian faith and an example of the results of earnest and successful business enterprise. He lived as he would die and no one who knew him well will doubt that his going home was attended by a vision so often granted to those who have faithfully followed their Saviour in this life. He had fought a good fight; he had finished his course; he had kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for him a crown of righteousness which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give him at that day.
