      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, December 19, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - Died at her home, December 13, Mrs. John Erskine, after a long illness. She was a sweet dispositioned lady but was not often found away from her own home. Those who knew her well loved her well and all who ever formed her acquaintance like her. She leaves to mourn her loss a husband, five daughters, Misses Adelia and Kittie Erskine, of South Richland; Mrs. H. Vorce, of Mexico; Mrs. Widrig, of Parish, and Mrs. Enos, of Lorraine, also a sister, Mrs. James McLaughlin, of this place, and many other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at her late home on Sunday afternoon; interment at the Willis cemetery.

      Newspaper Obituary - (newspaper and date unavailable) - Mrs. Hannah M. Erskine, wife of John Erskine, of South Richland, New York, passed from this to the immortal life December 14, 1894, at the age of seventy-three years. She was born in Otsego County, New York, but spent most of her life in Richland, where she was married October 23, 1845. She courageously bore the heavy burdens of family care, and successfully trained her children in the fear of the Lord, indelibly impressing their minds with the principles of Christian virtue and excellence. She joined the Methodist Episcopal Church soon after her marriage and always attended church when able. Her health had been poor for thirty years. The ripened graces of the Christian were clearly shown forth in her later invalid life. She never murmured, was always patient, sweet in spirit, trustfully suffering every painful change and quietly waiting for the happy release. She ardently loved Christian greetings, pastoral visits and communion with God. She leaves the testimony of a soul well ripened for Heaven. "Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also and he praiseth her".

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, December 26, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In South Richland, New York, December 14, 1894, Hannah M., wife of John Erskine, aged 73 years, 7 months, 9 days. She leaves a husband, six daughters, and one son to mourn her departure. The children are Misses Della and Carrie Erskine, John Erskine, all of South Richland; Mrs. Ann Vorce, of Mexico; Mrs. Mary Enos, of Adams; Mrs. Emma Widrig, of Mallory; and Mrs. Jessie F. Graham, of Tyler, Texas, all of whom were gathered around her dying bed except Della and Jessie, who were unable to be present on account of illness; and while Jessie watched so anxiously in far off Texas for word that mother was better, Della inquired just as anxiously of each as they passed in and out of her room, until just at the dawn of a new day. In reply to the question, "Is mother worse?" a sister said, "No, Della, mother is happy now," and although the burden seems too hard to be borne, we bow our heads submissively to our Father's chastening hand. Children and grandchildren all went to mother for sympathy in their pleasures as well as sorrows, and she always had a welcoming smile and kind word for all. Although mother's room and chair are vacant now, we feel her presence and can almost see the smile with which she always greeted us. The peacefulness with which she passed away only serves to impress more deeply upon our minds the words, "My grace is sufficient for thee. Safe in the arms of Jesus, Safe on his gentle breast. There by His love o’er shadowed, Sweetly our mother rests,” South Richland, December 20.
