    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, February 26, 1908 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - A Sad Home - Last week’s Camden Advance-Journal says: “At 7 o'clock Saturday morning, February 15th, Mrs. Howd B. Rush passed from earthly sufferings to the broader and greater life beyond. Her death occurred at the home of her brother, Fred West, on Second street, and was due to meningitis. She had been sick for about three weeks and during the last stages of the disease had been an intense suffering. Although it had been known for a week that her recovery was hopeless, the news of her death came as a great shock to all. Mrs. Rush was formerly Grace Elisabeth, youngest daughter of Mrs. Clarissa Seamans West. Her father was the late A. F. West. She was born in Williamstown, July 18, 1870, and lived there until reaching young womanhood, when the family moved to this village. Eighteen years ago last November she was united in marriage to Mr. Rush, and they continued their residence here until about seven years ago, when they moved to Port Jefferson, Long Island, where they remained for six years. The past year they were located in Fort Plain. A month ago Mr. and Mrs. Rush came here for a visit and a week later she was stricken with grip which terminated in the fatal illness. Mrs. Rush was a member of the Presbyterian church and when living here was affiliated with the Young People's Society of that denomination. She was highly respected and naught boy good can be said of her memory. Sincere sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. Besides the husband and mother there survive a sister, Mrs. Clarence G. King, of Utica, and three brothers, Fred and I. D. West, of Camden, and Frank West, of Pulaski. On the day of Mrs. Rush’s funeral, last week Tuesday, the wife of her brother, Fred West, was taken. She leaves, besides the husband, five children, Ruth, Myrtle, Grace, Helen and Harold, ranging in age from 3 to 10 years.
