    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, May 25, 1898 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Kasoag - Sunday about 6:00 p.m. the people in this place and vicinity were thrown into great excitement on learning that Willie, the eighteen-year-old son of Aaron Wright, who lives about one mile from this place, had committed suicide by hanging. It seems there was nothing unusual noticed about him by the rest of the family, as he appeared to be in good health and spirits. He did the chores at the barn, brought in the milk and went out. Sometime afterward his mother called him to breakfast, but he did not come and they thought no more of it, as he was in the habit of going for a call at some of the neighbors without saying anything to the family. His father went away soon after breakfast and during the forenoon the rest of the family went to Sunday school. Sometime in the afternoon his father returned and on learning from some of the smaller children that a few days before Willie had told them they would find him a corpse someday, he began a search and found him about twenty rods back of the barn, five or six feet in the woods, hanging to the limb of a large beech tree. Help was summoned. He was cut down, taken to the house, the coroner notified. It is a terrible shock to the parents and they have the sympathy of the entire community.
