  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 16, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Local Notes - We were much grieved this morning to learn of the death of Mrs. James Farmer, who died during the night.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 23, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mrs. James S. Farmer - Mary Jane Jones-Farmer was born April 4, 1830, in the log house owned by her father, neat the site of the brick house now occupied by C. H. Jones. Her parents were Pliny H. and Hannah Jones. Their children were Milton A. Jones, Mrs. Fanner, Lawrence N. (deceased), Elbridge W., Charles H., Olive L., wife of George W. Dodge, and Sarah (deceased.) She was united in maniage to James S. Farmer January 24, 1850 and began keeping house on the premises occupied by them at the time of her death. There have been born to them nine children: Charles F., Mattie J., Abbie J., Kate J., now Mrs. Thomas Laing, Lawrence J., Madge H., Maude H., now Mrs. Frank Austin, Hany and Jessica F. All of these survive except Abbie and Harry who died in infancy. In 1865, Mrs. Fanner united with the M. E. church, of Pulaski, and was a regular attendant until increased family duties kept her at home. Like a great many others, Mrs. Fanner was best understood by her own people. It is their testimony that no person ever lived who was more devoted to her family and no one ever had a stronger hold on the affection of her children. Her last words of advice, "Be good to each other," show better than anything else her feelings for their future. The malady that finally overcame her was the result of the general breaking up of a tired out organization. Last spring she, with difficulty, recovered from a sickness of several months, only to be stricken again this autumn. Two weeks ago last Saturday she went to spend the Sabbath with her daughter in Pulaski and there she was taken sick. It was thought best to move her and last Sunday she was taken home. Kind and loving hands bore her to and from the conveyance on a cot bed and she stood the journey with no apparent injury. Dissolution had already set in but she lingered, conscious ahnost to the last, till ten minutes past eight; when surrounded by those who loved her and who could hardly bear to part with her, she peacefully passed away. The funeral was held at her late residence Thursday at 2 p.m., Rev. Mr. Webster officiating. The bearers were her three brothers and brothers-in-law. Interment took place in the family lot at Pulaski cemetery. Thus has passed from earth one of the good souls to mingle forever with the Creator.
