  • Notes 
    • July 14, 1893 ~ Mary Ann Mahaffy, age 36 years, 10 months, born in Ontario, Canada, Daughter of William and Lettie McCombs, died in Pulaski of phthisis pulmonalis duration about 3 years.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, July 20, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mrs. J. S. Cleland, of Binghamton, has been in town for several days, called here by the death of her sister, Mrs. John Mahaffy.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, July 20, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - Mary Ann Mahaffy was born on Wolf Island, Province Ontario, September 3, 1856, and died in Pulaski, New York, July 14, 1893. In 1870 she came to Pulaski with her parents, William and Letitia McComb, where she has lived until her death, with the exception of two years, with her husband, in the city of Oswego. She was married with John Y. Mahaffy, June 29, 1876. Three or four years ago she was converted and joined the Methodist Episcopal church, in this place, on probation. Soon afterwards she suffered from a severe attack of the grip followed at intervals by painful sickness till it became apparent that ever-to-be-dreaded consumption had begun its work, and slowly, like a fading flower, she sunk under its ravages until the final release. It was hard for her to give up her husband and her three children, with life only fairly begun, and doubly hard for them to part with her, the faithful wife and loving mother. To her parents, to her brother and three sisters her death comes as the first great bereavement in their family. In such an hour how great the comfort of Jesus Christ, whose mighty arms, we believe, the deceased was permitted to lean upon, who is, in every dark hour, and in the valley and the shadow of death "the resurrection and the life."
