  • Notes 
    • October 24, 1894 ~ Cornelia Ledyard, age 91 years, Widow, born in New York, died in Pulaski of organic heart disease.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 31, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - On Thursday evening, a soul went out from the toils, sorrows and sufferings of this world to the new world of joy and peace, to enjoy the company of Paradise. Cornelia Ledyard was born in Richfield, Otsego County, New York August 10th, 1803 and died at her late residence Pulaski, New York, on Thursday, October 25th, 1894. Cornelia Jones came to Richland with her father, late Pliny Jones, mother and little brother, late Harlow Jones. With frozen hands and feet, at the age of four, little Cornelia reached her new home, a log house with no cover but the winter stars. Neighborly kindness lent them a rest until a more comfortable roof could be erected. The privations of pioneer life can be little comprehended by those who enjoy the comforts of their toils. On September 14th, 1823, Cornelia Jones and John Ledyard were married. Her husband died March 25th, 1875. About 1825 they were converted under the work of W. W. Ninde, and joined the Methodist Episcopal church in whose fold they lived until called to the higher church as eternal members. A life of eighty-seven years in the same place has witnessed the beginning, growth and changes of Pulaski. She lived here twenty-five years before Pulaski was incorporated. Mrs. Ledyard was a benefactor always. Five generations have found shelter under her home roof and nourishment from her hands. In early life she experienced the sorrows of a mother in the death of two infants. She has been as a mother to three generations, ever mindful of their wants in childhood and interested in their prosperity in after life. Her hands were constantly engaged in work for others. Her home rule was with kindness. Impatience was a quality unknown to her. Her religious life was a firm trust in Christ, an example to her family. An old family of the early settlers of this place has been emigrating to a better country and now the mother has just gone, and a majority are there, and the few left here may lire with an expectation of an entire reunion in a Heavenly land.
