  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, November 21, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - Our community was thrown into consternation and everybody paused and acted as though lost in thought and is if they had for the moment become speechless as the news of the death of Robert McNett went from lip to lip. We all knew he was suffering greatly and that he could not live very long, yet not a great many thought the end so near. He has been slowly declining all summer. The death of his two children, the first and the last born of his family, almost crushed him to the earth. He mourned for them as only a father could but his disease, which the postmortem disclosed to be a stone cancer, was sure and on Tuesday night as the day declined his spirit heard the summons. It is enough. He called his wife and son and a kind neighbor, who was present, to come into the room and as they did so put his hand into his wife's hands and began to sing "At the cross." Singing the verse through, he exclaimed, "Blessed Jesus," and passed away. Mr. McNett gave his heart to God a few years ago, shortly after the conversion of his oldest son. Afterwards he saw the other two converted and there is a glad reunion in heaven today of the father, Eva and Louis. Funeral services at his home were held November 18, conducted by Rev. H. R. Northrop, assisted by Rev. William H. Hall, of Dugway. The choir consisted of Mr. Owens, Mr. Norris, Miss Bertha Holdridge and Mrs. Norris. Friends from Cattaraugus, Canastota and Parish were present. Interment took place at Dugway.
