    • John Atkinson - February 15, 1823 - March 21, 1908_ Husband of Mary Varah Atkinson. Married 1848.

      Newspaper Obituary - April 1, 1908 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Johnathan Atkinson, one of the oldest and most highly esteemed inhabitants of this town, died March 21, 1908. Mr. Atkinson was born February 15, 1823, at Cumberland, Yorkshire, England. He was the son of William and Nancy Scott Atkinson and the oldest of a family of six children. When but fourteen years of age he left home and secured employment on a large estate. Here he proved his competency and was shortly promoted to general overseer of the estate. In the year 1848, Mr. Atkinson was united in marriage to Miss Mary Varah, of Cumberland, England. Shortly after their marriage, they embarked at Liverpool for the United States. Their voyage was long and tedious, being enroute nine weeks and three days. They landed at New York in the spring of 1848. Came from there to Syracuse and thence to Central Square where they remained for one year. Not being suited with this place, they removed to the town of Richland at which place they purchased the farm now occupied by Mr. Weldon. As this farm was not large enough, they disposed of it and bought the Brown farm. Here he and his wife labored faithfully until August 8, 1896, when Mrs. Atkinson joined the Heavenly Realms. Since her death, Mr. Atkinson has lived with his son, Isaac, on the old homestead where he dwelled at the time of his death. Mr. Atkinson was one of the best farmers in Oswego county. He was a man that said and practiced, "What is worth doing is worth doing well," (Typical of the Englishman ) It has often been remarked, "Mr. Atkinson can plow a furrow as straight as one can shoot an arrow." He is survived by nine children, six daughters, Mrs. Charles Farmer, Mrs. Frank Jamerson, Mrs. Elmer Carl, Mrs. George Dyke, Mrs. John North, of Pulaski, and Mrs. Frank Ackley, of Parish; three sons, William, Isaac and Delano, of Pulaski; fourteen grandchildren and eight great grandchildren. The funeral was held at his home March 25, at 2 p.m., the Rev. Frederick Maunder officiating. Interment was made at Gillespie cemetery.
