    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 27, 1897 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - An Autumn Wedding - The home of Mr. and Mrs. George Dodge was the scene of a very pretty wedding last Wednesday afternoon, when their youngest daughter, Martha Janet, was united in marriage to Mr. Norman Earl Woods, son of William Woods, of this village. The house was very prettily decorated with evergreens and white ribbon, ropes of the two hung from the corners of the parlor. Promptly at five o'clock the bridal party entered the room to the music of Mendelssolm's wedding march, played by Miss S. Frances King, and took their position under a bell of evergreens and white chrysanthemums where the ceremony was performed by the Rev. A. S. Emmons, pastor of the Congregational church. The bride was very attractively gowned in a traveling dress of blue and carried a beautiful bouquet of blush roses. She was assisted by her sister, Miss May Dodge, who was attired in dark red, carrying Jacqueminot roses, while Mr. Louis Woods, of Syracuse, acted as his brother's best man. The young couple were made the recipients of many very beautiful and very useful gifts. After a short wedding tour they will be "at home" to their friends at the residence of the bride's parents. Among the guests from out of town were, Messrs. A. Patchen, and Louis Woods, Syracuse; Miss Nellie Dodge, Adams; Mrs. William R. Box, Watertown; Mrs. Thomas Laing and Miss Bertha Laing, Williamstown; Mrs. Weed, Orwell; Mrs. Drake, Syracuse; Mr. Floyd Adams and Miss Etta Adams, Oswego Center, Mrs. Wharton Sprague, Fulton, and Mrs. John Porter, Mexico.

  • Notes 
    • April 24, 1886 ~ Phoebe C. Woods, age 28 years, Married, born in Richland Township, Daughter of David and Rosetta Bennett, died in Richland Township.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 29, 1886 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died in this village, April 24th, 1886, Phoebe, wife of W. M. Woods, aged 28 years. Mrs. Woods was a daughter of David Bennett, formerly well known as a contractor and builder of this village, now a resident of Nebraska. She was a fond mother and devotedly beloved by her husband, who deeply mourns her loss. Three small children, two sons and a daughter are left, too young to fully realize the dreadful affliction which has befallen them. Mr. and Mrs. Woods, a few years after their marriage, moved from this village to Hastings, Nebraska, and afterwards to Pennsylvania. It was less than two months since that they returned to this village. The funeral was held last Monday from their residence on the C. W. Woods farm. E. D. Bennett, a brother, Mrs. H. H. Lyman, Mrs. R. W. Box, and Mrs. Z. Kiblin, sisters, were present at the last and impressive services, conducted by Rev. D. D. Owen. We deeply sympathize with the husband and his motherless children in their sad bereavement.
