  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 12, 1898 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Death of a Centenarian - Mrs. Diana Bentley Passes Away in the Town of Sandy Creek - The oldest resident of the town of Sandy Creek, Mrs. Diana Bentley, passed to her rest last Sunday morning, having almost spanned a century of life. She was born on the 9th of November, 1798, and so would have shortly celebrated the centennial anniversary of her birth. The large number who were present at her funeral on Monday, attest to the wide circle of her friendships. With her husband, Stephen Bentley, who died in 1877, at the age of seventy-seven years, she came to this town from Saratoga County on the second of March, 1822, and settled in a partially finished log house on the farm now owned by Mrs. Noyes, of Pulaski, nearly opposite the home of Daniel Severance, on the bank of Blind Creek. Here they resided for nearly fifty years, rearing a family of four sons and one daughter, of whom one son alone survives, J. H. Bentley, of this village, with whom the mother resided. Their rude hut when they fust came to this town was only partially roofed, and without a floor other than the earth. They toiled here together, enduring hardships and clearing up the land, making a home for the family. Thus one by one the links that connect the early scenes in the history of the town with the present have been severed, until few now remain to remind the present of the past. Her pastor, Rev. C. L. Peck, of the M. E. church, of which she had been a member for the past half-century, officiated, and her remains were borne from her late home and laid at rest in the family plot in Woodlawn cemetery. -Sandy Creek News.
