      Newspaper Obituary - August 1899 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Alva McChesney was born in 1827 and died at his home in Richland August 16, 1899, age 72 years. He had been in poor health for nearly a year but he was patient to the last, always doing what he could for the Master in whom he trusted. He was married in 1851 to Isabella Calkins who now survives him, also four sons and two daughters whom all live in the far west but one son. He also leaves two brothers and two sisters who reside in Syracuse. He was a loving husband, an affectionate father and was a kind neighbor and friend. He was a member of the M. E. church for many years and he has gone to his reward. The friends have our sympathy in this sad affliction. His funeral was largely attended from his late home Friday. Rev. Jago of Stockholm officiating. He was buried in the Willis cemetery.
