    Notes:

    Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, June 22, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland - The funeral of Samuel McNitt was held at his late residence yesterday. Services were conducted by Rev. C. E. Beebe.

    Within the three years since your previous meeting at Pulaski, several of the old pioneers of the town who were present at that. Among these are, Samuel McNitt, a man well-known in his day. They do not know the year he settled but he was here in 1812. He was an unlettered man of strong common sense and he had the habit sometimes offensively, as the old way of expressing it is of "calling things by their right name." He at one time was the owner of a small vessel, and if reports were true, was ignorant or forgetful of the revenue laws to the annoyance of the United States officials. John Jones, who resided in this village just south of "the old brewery" place, was a very old settler. He was a somewhat famous fisherman in his time but manage to keep clear of the lawsuits so frequent in the earlier days in regard to the fishing. He was not a profane man, yet a favorite oath of his gave him the name of "By Mighty." He was the only man I ever heard or read of who successfully performed the feat of making a whistle from a pig's tail. He was in the war of 1812.

    Samuel married Mercy Amanda Waters. Mercy (daughter of Lee Waters) was born on 1 Jan 1798 in Connecticut, USA; died on 5 Jan 1879 in Mexico, Oswego, New York, United States; was buried in Albion Center, Oswego County, New York, USA. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 16, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - McNitt - In South Richland, January 5th, 1879, Mercy, wife of Mr. W. McNitt. Aged 83 years.

    Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, March 13, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - South Richland, March 10th, 1879 - Mrs. Mercy Watrons McNitt, who died in January, was born in the Mohawk Valley; she moved to South Adams when a child. About 1823, she was married to Samuel McNiff by the Rev. Mr. Bishop. About this time, many of Mr. McNitt's friends died, and he came to Oswego County to find a healthy location. David Dewey, who kept the old "Dewey Tavern," told him he thought Albion was a healthy place, so he bought twenty acres of woods, what is now a part of R. Fletcher's farm. He thought the only way people died there would be by starvation; but he "guessed he could live anywhere that white folks could." It was all woods, with no roads, at that time. They lived there five years, then sold to R. T. Gates, and bought their present home. Mrs. McNitt's father and mother and sister died with palsy, and she always dreaded it, and finally died with it She was sister to Rev. Samuel Watrons, a Protestant Methodist minister, who perhaps some will remember. Her sister Phoebe joined the Mormons, and went with them to Nauvoo, and then to Utah, where she died.
