      Funeral services will be held from the late home on the Syracuse road, Friday morning at 9 a.m, and from St. John's Catholic Church at 9:30. Rev. Edward P. Keflefic will officiate. Burial will be made in Pulaski cemetery.

      He was born at Pine Meadows, April 10, 1872, the son of Lewis and Amelia Smith Durgee. On Jan. 13, 1896, he was married to Miss Marandia Baker at Harrisville Catholic church by Rev. J.C.

He came to Pulaski 35 years ago and some seven years later he purchased the farm which was his late home. Mr. Durgee was a communicant of St. John the Evangelist church in Pulaski.
