    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, August 12, 1886 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In Dugway, Albion, July 27, 1886, at the residence of her son-in-law, James Doney, Mrs. Samantha Simmons Carr, aged _7 years, 11 months. She was born in Volney, Oswego County. In January. 1856, she was married with Peter Carr. In 18_, she, with her husband and two children, Mary and Hattie, moved to Holmesville, where the youngest child, Mattie was born. Fourteen years ago she moved to what was known as the Capt. Waters Farm on the Salt road. Two years ago she moved to Albion. Mrs. Can was empathetically a good woman. More than a quarter of a century ago she united with the M. E. church in Holmesville. and has been an acceptable member of the Denver sense. She made friends wherever she went, her neighbors all loved her, and with reason. The death of her daughter, Mrs. Mary J. Doney, was a severe blow to her, from which she probably never recovered. She had been in failing health for some time, about four weeks ago she was taken worse, but her friends had many hopes until the night of her death. Her funeral was largely attended at the church in Dugway. The services were conducted by the Rev. Mr. Merrick of Parish. Perhaps none will grieve over her loss more than her daughter, Mrs. Mattie Doney, with whom she lived and who cared for her in her sickness. Her other daughter, Mrs. Hattie Calkins, of Albany, was also with her the last few days.
