      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, March 19, 1902 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - "Suffer Little Children to Come" - In the death of a sinless child we are very apt to recall the gentle words of the Master when he said, "Suffer Little Children to Come." We dislike to see them pass from our homes, yet there is some consolation to be drawn from the belief that they are "Safe in the Arms of Jesus" and free from pain and suffering. Eleven months ago there came to the home of Mr. and Mrs. William J. Peach, a little daughter, and they christened her Emily Ursula. The little one grew in days and each day grew into the hearts of her parents, but as too many loved flowers, a blight came, the flower wilted a day after two days of intense suffering the little spirit took it's flight, last Friday noon, and left the fond parents to sorrow over the early close of a little life in which they had hoped for comfort and joy. Monday afternoon at half past two in large company of neighbors and friends assembled to witness the funeral rites and sympathize with the bereaved parents. Little Emily was resting in a white casket covered and surrounded with beautiful flowers, the gifts of friends of the parents, among which floral tributes were a star of flowers from the Citizen's Club, floral pillow from Emma Fleming, a cluster of white roses from the Board of Trustees of this village, white roses from the Baptist church and miscellaneous flowers from friends. The service was conducted by Rev. J. Foster Wilcox and Miss L. Grace Henderson and William D. Greene sang "Jesus Lover of My Soul" and Miss Henderson sang "Safe in the Arms of Jesus," Mrs. J. M. Greene presiding at the piano. Friends from out of town attending the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. G. A. Cuatt and Mr. D. H. Gowing, Syracuse; Mr. and Mrs. C. T. West, Watertown; H. D. Richardson, Miss Freme Richardson, W. D. Richardson, Mrs. W. H. Davis, Mrs. VanDeWalker, Mrs. A. W. Calkins, Union Square; Mrs. C. W. House, Colosse; Mr. and Mrs. Henry Davis, Miss Hattie Davis, Orwell; Mrs. E. S. Taylor, Mexico; Dr. C. L. Webb and Mrs. Mary Richardson, Central Square.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, March 26, 1902 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Memorial and Gratitude - "There is no flock, however watched and tended, But one dead lamb is there! There is no fireside, howsoe'er defended, But has one vacant chair!" Emily Ursula Peach was born March 24, 1901 and entered into rest March 14, 1902, aged eleven months and twenty-two days. If it is true that, "We live in deeds, not years; in thoughts, not breath; in feelings, not in figures on the dial," we can but feel that she has fulfilled her mission in life, that of gladdening the hearts of those around her, and bringing warmth and light as a sunbeam into the lives of many. As we turned from the little mound where so many fond hopes he buried, we feel much as the soldier feels who, having received a commission from is commander, leaves the warmth, bright firelight and pleasant companionship of the camp and goes forth into the storm and darkness. Little Emily died "while splendor was in the morning clouds, while we, living on until life's noon has passed, have felt the heat and burden of the day." "She is not dead, the child of our affection, but gone unto that school. Where she no longer needs our poor protection, and Christ himself doth rule. In that great cloister's stillness and seclusion, by guardian angels led, safe from temptation, safe from sun's pollution, she lives, whom we call dead." As a cooling draught to parched lips, comes the kind ministrations of dear and sympathetic friends. We remember with gratitude unspeakable the many loving messages from afar, the outstretched hand and tear dimmed eye, the sympathy expressed so fittingly in the beautiful flowers sent by the members of the Citizen's Club, the village trustees, the Baptist church, baby's faithful nurse and physician, and the many, many others, not forgetting the dear little ones who came with their offerings of flowers. "For such is the Kingdom of Heaven." Like oil on troubled waters the sweet strains of "Jesus Lover of My Soul" still rings in our ears, and we feel that our darling is indeed, "Safe in the Arms of Jesus." We fervently thank all and say in the midst of our sorrow, "God bless you for your kindness!" Mr. and Mrs. William J. Peach.
