      Obituary in Oswego Palladium - Times dated December 13, 1939

      PULASKI EDITOR DIES IN SYRACUSE

      F. Earle McChesney Passes Tuesday Night Following Operation a Week Ago
      Pulaski, Dec. 13 - F. Earle McChesney, 58, president of Pulaski Democrat Publishing company, and editor of the Pulaski Democrat, died Tuesday night in Crouse-Irving hospital, Syracuse, after complications had set in following a recent operation.
      Mr. McChesney was stricken with acute appendicitis a week ago Monday. He had been at his office as usual during the morning and returned for a short time in the afternoon, only to be forced to return home. He was taken to Crouse-Irving hospital, late Monday afternoon, and was operated on early in the evening. The appendix was found to be in a gangrenous condition but was removed before it had burst.
      He had apparently escaped infection and was making a good recovery up to last Saturday when a blood clot lodged in the right lung and the lower lobe began to fill. Pneumonia threatened immediately and he was placed under an oxygen tent. Sunday his condition rapidly became worse and volunteers for blood transfusions were called early Monday.
      The response of donors was prompt and Monday afternoon he received a transfusion from his son Hugh McChesney. Tuesday his condition grew rapidly worse and he received another transfusion from Spencer J. Walton, but it was to no avail.
      Mr. McChesney was born in Lycoming, Sept 2, 1881, and was the son of Frank and Etta Lawton McChesney. He came to Pulaski as a boy and was educated in the village schools. He took up telegraphy in the local station and later went to Granby, Conn., where he was employed by the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad. He later went to Avon. Conn., as station master and then was in a general merchandise business in that village. While there he was postmaster for some time and then town clerk.
      He returned to Pulaski in 1914 and for a time was associated with the late Charles J. Dodge in his store. Following the outbreak of the war he went into the YMCA service and was stationed at Camp Dix for about 18 months.
      In 1927, following the death of Byron G. Seamans, he took over the Pulaski Democrat and since that time associated with his wife and brother, Fred L. McChesney, has handled that publication and the job department associated with it.
      He was actively interested in all community projects and had been a leader in Red Cross work here for many years, having served as chairman of the roll call this year. He was a staunch Republican and a hard worker for the success of that party. While he occupied no village office, his advice was frequently sought. He was also an active member of the Pulaski Baptist church and of the various organizations connected with it.
      Outside of the Pulaski area he was extensively known throughout Central New York as one of the authorities on local history, having made this his principal hobby. Associated with L.L. Luther, now of Ithaca, and the late Joseph M. Bonner, he formed a group which kept matters of historical interest alive in Pulaski and had a deep knowledge of the early days of the eastern end of Oswego county as well as much documentary material relating to them.
      He was also an active and interested member of the Masonic order, being at the present time chaplain of Pulaski Lodge, No. 415, F. & A. H. He was a past high priest of Pulaski Chapter No 279 R A M., and a past patron of Pulaski Chapter, OES.
      Besides his wife, Mrs. Ruth Austin McChesney, he is survived by four daughters, Miss Lois McChesney of East Islip, L. I., Mrs. Alfred Kemp of Rochester, Mrs. George Brownell of Queens Village, L. I. , and Miss Edith McChesney of Hudson; two sons, William McChesney of Binghamton, and Hugh McChesney of Pulaski; three brothers, Alva C. McChesney of Orwell, Newton McChesney of Adams and Fred L. McChesney of Pulaski , and one sister, Mrs. William Thompson of Ilion.
      Prayer will be conducted at the home Friday afternoon at 1:30 o'clock, and funeral services will be held at 2 o'clock in the Pulaski Baptist Church, the Rev. W. Raymond Rogers, pastor, officiating. Burial will be in the Pulaski cemetery.
