  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 10, 1900 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Albion Cross Roads - Died, September 26, 1900 of spinal meningitis, Pearl, oldest daughter of William and Jennie F. Towsley, aged 4 years, 10 months and 4 days. Little Pearl was an intelligent child but on account of the spinal affection was never able to walk. Her parents anticipated her every want, and cared for her most tenderly; and in return for their loving care Pearl was a sweet, patient sufferer. Mother's arms and caresses charmed away the weary hours her short life endured. How closely to the parents' heart, The helpless one was pressed. But able the ruthless hand of death, Has laid her now at rest. As the bereaved parents looked upon little Pearl in her casket covered with flowers their hearts were overwhelmed with grief yet they realize that their loss is her eternal gain, and think of her sweetly sleeping "Safe in the anus of Jesus," a frail flower transferred from the sorrows of earth to bloom in the garden of heaven.
