  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 16, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - McNitt - In South Richland, January 5th, 1879, Mercy, wife of Mr. W. McNitt. Aged 83 years.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, March 13, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland, March 10th, 1879 - Mrs. Mercy Watrons McNitt, who died in January, was born in the Mohawk Valley; she moved to South Adams when a child. About 1823, she was married to Samuel McNiff by the Rev. Mr. Bishop. About this time, many of Mr. McNitt's friends died, and he came to Oswego County to find a healthy location. David Dewey, who kept the old "Dewey Tavern," told him he thought Albion was a healthy place, so he bought twenty acres of woods, what is now a part of R. Fletcher's farm. He thought the only way people died there would be by starvation; but he "guessed he could live anywhere that white folks could." It was all woods, with no roads, at that time. They lived there five years, then sold to R. T. Gates, and bought their present home. Mrs. McNitt's father and mother and sister died with palsy, and she always dreaded it, and finally died with it She was sister to Rev. Samuel Watrons, a Protestant Methodist minister, who perhaps some will remember. Her sister Phoebe joined the Mormons, and went with them to Nauvoo, and then to Utah, where she died.
