      Newspaper Obituary - September 24, 1924 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Brief mention was made in the last issue of the Democrat to the suicide of Claude Calkins, aged 40 years, of Daysville. It is an extremely sad case and the family has the sincere sympathy of the community. Mr. Calkins had been in a nervous condition and, last spring, went to Ogdensburg Hospital for treatment. He had been home about his farm work during the summer but was not in normal health. He must have feared a collapse and possible return to Ogdensburg. He went into a dense corn field, Tuesday, of last week, and leaned on the muzzle of his gun and pulled the trigger. The shot took effect in his heart and the death must have been instant. He left a scrawled note on his person telling of his intention to do the rash act, if he had nerve enough, which he did. Mr. Calkins had been a successful farmer and was in good circumstances. He leaves a wife and one daughter besides his father, Fred Calkins and one sister, Mrs. Roy Hardie, of Port Ontario. Funeral services were held from the home, Friday, when a very large gathering of neighbors and friends went to the sad home to pay their last tribute of respect to the departed. Rev. Charles Bollinger, of Whitesboro, former pastor of Fernwood and Daysville churches, officiated. Burial took place in Willis cemetery.
