    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, February 1, 1883 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Matrimonial - "Thursday, January 25, at half past four p.m." At the hour above-mentioned, a very large number of wedding guests had assembled at the residence of T. R. Ingersoll, on Jefferson street, in this village. The house was ablaze with lights, every room was thrown open and the decorations were very beautiful. The occasion, so long and pleasantly to be remembered, was that of the nuptials of Mr. C. Frank Woods, a young man of sterling qualities, and excellent standing in this village and Miss Nellie Ingersoll, only child of Mr. and Mrs. T. R. Ingersoll. Not many moments after the hour mentioned at the beginning of this article, the youthful pair, preceded by the officiating clergyman, and accompanied by the parents of the bride and other intimate friends, appeared in the parlor, where, in a few well-chosen, distinctly spoken words, Rev. S. T. Dibble pronounced them husband and wife and presented "Mr. and Mrs. Frank Woods" to the assembled guests. Then followed an exceedingly merry half hour devoted to congratulations and visiting, supplemented by the serving of a most sumptuous repast. Everything that the heart could wish was provided, fruit and grapes in the last course were especially palatable. In the upper hall was a broad table, glittering with an unusually elegant display of silver ware and other gifts suitable and appropriate for wedding presents. This was constantly surrounded by an admiring audience. Here were presents fanciful and ornamental, presents substantial, and presents combining all these acceptable qualifications. Of the former were embroideries, pictures, and other articles in great profusion; of the second class, notably were two envelopes addressed to the bride, one from the groom's father, containing $100, and the other from the bride's father, containing $200. Of the latter was not only the silver and crystal ware, a most elegant display, but notably a $200 seal skin sacque from the bride's parents. This was especially admired by the ladies. The newly married Mr. and Mrs. Woods left on the evening train for Albany and other points east. It is the happy lot of fuel to begin married life with so many and strong assurances of future success and happiness. The Democrat congratulates.

      Mrs. G. Andrews Dies in Syracuse

      Mrs. May Woods Andrews, native of Pulaski and wife of Gregory G. Andrews, vice principal of Vocational High school, died at her home in 103 Robinean Rd., Syracuse, Friday afternoon. Funeral services were conducted from the Elmer E. Price funeral home in Syracuse Monday at 2 p.m. by the Rev. Frank B. McDuffee, pastor of Plymouth Congregational church. Interment was made in Pulaski cemetery.

      Surviving besides her husband, are a daughter, Miss Jane Andrews, dietitian at the Presbyterian hospital in New York city, a nephew Edwin W. Warner, and grand nephew, Warren Warner, both of Pulaski. She was the sister of the late Mrs. Helen Woods Warner, wife of Edwin R. Warner, of this village.

      Mrs. Andrews was born in Pulaski and graduated from Pulaski high school in 1902, and from Vassar college in 1907.

      She taught in the local school until her marriage to Mr. Andrews in Aug. 7, 1912, who was then principal here.

      She was a member of the Congregational church in Pulaski until she transferred her membership to the Plymouth Congregational church in Syracuse, and was a member of the Ontario chapter, D.A.R. in Pulaski. She had resided in Syracuse for the past 35 years and was a member of the Vassar club.

      Mr. and Mrs. Andrews had purchased the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Jones in Park St. and planned to move here soon. Mr. Andrews expects to take up his residence here in the near future.
