      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, April 22, 1896 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Obituary - Mrs. Anna Weaver was bom near Burrsville, New York December 7, 1810, and died at Richland, New York, April 2, 1896, aged 85 years, 3 months and 25 days. Mrs. Weaver was the daughter of the late Thomas and Lydia Jenks, of Burrville, and was the oldest of ten children, of whom four are living, William and Clark Jenks, of Racine, Wisconsin, and Mrs. Lucy Cary and Chauncy Jenks of Kansas. At about the age of ten years, her parents moved into the town of Pamelia, Jefferson County. She was married to the late Benjamin Weaver, of Watertown, New York when about 20 years of age and took up their residence in Pamelia where they lived for many years. Mr. Weaver afterward purchased a farm in the town of Brownville where they lived until 1860, when they removed to Richland, Oswego County. Mrs. Weaver was the mother of nine children, of whom four remain to mourn the loss of a loved mother, G. H. Weaver and Mrs. Hannah A. Lighthall, of Richland, Mrs. Julia E. Harris, of Rome, Oneida County, and Benjamin F. Weaver of Brownville, Jefferson County. Her last illness was short and painful, taken with the grip, which resulted in heart failure in a little over a week. She was a kind and affectionate mother, a good neighbor and a consistent Christian and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. She was always at her place at the public means of grace when her health would permit. About eight years ago when she met with a painful accident and fractured her hip, since which time she has been wholly deprived of church privileges. She was sorely afflicted when her sight began to fail a little less than one year ago, thus deprived her of the great luxury of reading, but said she, "I will not murmur or complain;” as she came down to the valley, she feared no evil, for, said she, "Jesus sustains me. It is all right, I am ready." Thus peacefully she fell asleep. The funeral was held at Richland M. E. church on Easter Sunday, Rev. A. D. Webster, of Pulaski, preached an interesting and comforting sermon, let Cor. 15:55, "O death where is thy sting, O grave where is thy victory." The remains were then taken laid at rest by the side of her husband in the cemetery, at Richland, to await the resurrection mom.
