      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 16, 1948 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York- Services Held For Mrs. A. C. Colvin - Mrs. Emma J. Waggoner Colvin, 73, wife of Arthur C. Colvin, a resident of Pulaski for 47 years, died in Crouse Irving Hospital, Syracuse, Saturday noon following a major operation. She had been a patient at the hospital since November 29. Funeral Services were conducted at the Foster funeral home in Park street, Tuesday at 2 p.m. with the Rev. James N. Pauley, pastor of the Methodist church, officiating. The Rebekah lodge attended in a body. Interment was made in Riverside cemetery. Pall bearers included the three sons-in-law of Mrs. Colvin, W. Taylor Barr, Stanley Ora Calkins, and Lucian Mathews; two grandsons, William T. Barr and Richard Calkins, and Ward Miles. Surviving besides her husband, are three daughters, Mrs. W. Taylor (Dora) Barr, and Mrs. Lucian (Opal) Mathews both of Pulaski, and Stanley O. (Gladys) Calkins of Canton; two grandsons, William T. Barr, Pulaski, and Richard Calkins, Canton. A fourth daughter died in infancy. Mrs. Colvin was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, April 17, 1875, the daughter of Henry and Mary Ellen Murphy Waggoner. She came to Sandy Creek in 1897, and was united in marriage to Mr. Colvin, March 16, 1898. Two years later they moved to Pulaski where they have since made their home. Last March they celebrated their golden wedding anniversary. Mrs. Colvin is widely known throughout this vicinity as a musician, having played at dances and social gatherings with her husband for many years, accompanying him at the piano with his violin. Mr. Colvin is an old-time fiddler and as a two-piece orchestra, they were probably one of the best known for square dances in this northern section. Mrs. Colvin was also an excellent home baker, and for several years supplied villagers and stores in nearby communities with her cakes, cookies and doughnuts. In more recent years she had devoted her time more exclusively to crocheting, making doilies, table clothes, bedspreads, afghans and chair backs, many of which she has had sale for. Mrs. Colvin was an active member of the Rising Sun Rebekah lodge, as long as her health would permit, and served as Noble Grand in 1926. She was also a member of the J. B. Butler Post, Woman's Relief Corps, and was a member of the Pulaski grange. She had been a member of the Methodist church in Pennsylvania, but had never affiliated with the local church.
