  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, May 30, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - Our community is shrouded in darkness and grief over the death of Miss Eva McNett. So short a time ago we wrote of the death of her brother, Louis, at whose death her life became so saddened that her frail health could not endure what she perhaps might, had the terrible disease come upon her at some other time. On the 11th of May she closed her school door where she was teaching, bade her pupils a pleasant good night, and came home. On Sunday she attended church, and people noticed her saddened spirits and her tired appearance. On Monday she was unable to go to her school, and day by day she grew worse until. on the 25th, she heard the voice of her Savior, whom she loved, saying "Come ye blessed." When told she could not get well, her reply was, "It is all right " She was a graduate of Pulaski Academy, and was one of Oswego county's best teachers. She was a Christian girl, a member of the M. E. Church, Y. P. S. C. E. and Sunday school, and the life and sunshine of her home. But her life work is ended. Books are put away, the organ is closed. and the places at the table and at home are vacant. The hearts of father, mother and brother, Eddie, are left crushed and bleeding over this terrible affliction; but they do not grope their way in darkness, for they have heard the voice of their God, "I love thee, pass under the rod." and He will strengthen the chain He has broken in twain, and will fasten it firm to the skies. She was the fn-stborn and only daughter of Robert and Martha McNett, who mourn with numberless friends and associates their irreparable loss. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W. H. Hall, on Saturday; interment at Dugway.
