    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, April 18, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Academy Notes - Louis O. McNett, one of our brightest students, died after a short illness at the home of his parents near South Richland, April 10, 1894. The fimeral occurred at the same place, April 12th. A delegation from the class of 1895, of which he was a member, and one from the P. A. Congress, attended. Out of respect to his memory the following resolutions were adopted by the students of Pulaski Academy and by P. A. Congress: Again the students of Pulaski Union School and Academy are called upon to lament the death of a beloved fellow student. In the death of our friend, Louis McNeil, we feel the school has suffered a loss not easily to be repaired. He was always energetic, obliging and kind; he was respected by both faculty and students. And earnest scholar, a young man conscientious in all things, he has thus early in life been called to his long home, leaving behind in the remembrance of an example worthy of imitation. While we cannot understand the wisdom which is taken him from us, yet we trust we can bow to the Divine will. Wherefore, be it Resolved, That in his death the school has sustained and irreparable loss; the students a faithful friend and co-worker; the teachers a thorough student and his parents a good son, a staff to lean upon in their old age. And, further, be it Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the bereaved family, and be printed in the Pulaski Democrat. Albert A. Wright, Charles Hutchins, Harrison K. Wright, Committee.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, April 18, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - At his home in South Richland, New York, April 10, 1894, Louis McNett, aged 17 years. Louis had many friends and was a young man of exemplary habits and character. Sweet spirited and of mild disposition, he made friends and kept them. He was the youngest child and second son of Robert and Martha McNett. Loving him fondly and tenderly, humoring him much had not spoiled him. He was a student of Pulaski academy and was gaining rapidly in all his studies, and ere he would have passed his eighteenth birthday would have graduated. But again is the adage proven sure commencing, "That death loves a shining mark." His sickness was not long and lingering, but his suffering was great. He sensed the approach of the great messenger, who did not fmd him unprepared. Only a short time ago he gave his heart to God, and united with the M. E. church. He was a member of the Y. P. S. C. E. and Sunday school. Loving hearts and kind friends did everything they knew to do, but he heard the still voice, it was the voice of his God, and quietly the labored breathing grew less and the heart beats ceased their throbs and his spirit sped on glad wings to the arms of Jesus, who waited to carry him over the tide. Funeral services were held at the home, Rev. H. R. Northrop, assisted by Rev. R. A. Whipple, of Central Square, officiating. The floral tributes were very beautiful. A 'wreath of smilax encircled the steel tinted casket, and sweet scented bouquets, love's offering, filled the room with their rich perfume. A beautiful pillow with the class word was given by the members of the graduating class, also another equal in loveliness, the gift of the Sunday school, with his name. A large gathering of people were in attendance. Faces were saddened that were wont to mule, and eyes unused to weeping shed their tears freshly as they gazed for the last time on his face. People lingered with a lack as if loth to believe. Four of his young associates laid him at rest in the cemetery at Dugway. The home is saddened. A father, mother, one sister and one brother wait and listen with grief stricken hearts. There is a longing, and in their anguish their souls cry out unsatisfied. But they do not mourn without hope, for in the bright golden days of the sweet bye and bye, though it be long to wait, they shall meet where God and the angels are.
