  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, June 22, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - The funeral of Samuel McNitt was held at his late residence yesterday. Services were conducted by Rev. C. E. Beebe.

      Within the three years since your previous meeting at Pulaski, several of the old pioneers of the town who were present at that. Among these are, Samuel McNitt, a man well-known in his day. They do not know the year he settled but he was here in 1812. He was an unlettered man of strong common sense and he had the habit sometimes offensively, as the old way of expressing it is of "calling things by their right name." He at one time was the owner of a small vessel, and if reports were true, was ignorant or forgetful of the revenue laws to the annoyance of the United States officials. John Jones, who resided in this village just south of "the old brewery" place, was a very old settler. He was a somewhat famous fisherman in his time but manage to keep clear of the lawsuits so frequent in the earlier days in regard to the fishing. He was not a profane man, yet a favorite oath of his gave him the name of "By Mighty." He was the only man I ever heard or read of who successfully performed the feat of making a whistle from a pig's tail. He was in the war of 1812.
