    Notes:

    December 12, 1890 Sally Brown, age 96 years, born in New York, Daughter of Benjamin Winch, died in Richland Township of heart failure.

    Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 25, 1890 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died December 13, 1890 at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Agustus Twitchell, Mrs. Sally Brown, aged 96 years. Mrs. Brown's life reached so far back on history's page that her memory must have held much that would interest us all. She was born in Whitestown, Oneida county, November 17, 1794 from which place her father, Benjamin Winch, moved to Texas, Oswego county, about 1797; from there he moved to Pulaski in 1801. The Oswego county history says of him: "To Benjamin Winch is inscribed the honor of being the first white settler within the boundaries of the present thriving village of Pulaski. He erected the first tavern on the site since occupied by the Palmer House. It was a log structure, but many a pioneer was cheered by his fireside and venison." Speaking of her girlhood in the then wilderness, Mrs. Brown said: "There was no bridge over the river, and my father took travelers across in his boat. There was no road, only a foot path from Pulaski to the lake. And I attended school at Rome, because there was none nearer." She was married in 1813 to Daniel Brown, and raised a family of nine children, of whom five are still living: Mr. Edmund Brown and Mrs. Amorette Champney of this town, Mr. Gustavus Brown of Traverse City, Mich., Mrs. Anna Eliza May of Pulaski and Mrs. Pauline Twitchell, with whom she died. Mrs. Brown early espoused the cause of Christ and must have been one of the first members of the M. E. Church in Pulaski, where she retained her membership until removed to the church triumphant. She was smart and active, retaining her faculties wonderfully for one of her age, and died suddenly, without sickness or pain.December 12, 1890 Sally Brown, age 96 years, born in New York, Daughter of Benjamin Winch, died in Richland Township of heart failure.
