  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 31, 1885 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Orwell - Death of an Aged Inhabitant - On Wednesday, December 23, Mrs. Jane Potter, one of our oldest and highly respected inhabitants, laid down her earthly duties, and in obedience to a summons from above, went out into a glorious eternity with God and His redeemed ones. Jane Davis Potter was a native of Oneida County. She was born June, 1802, of Welch parentage. But when a young maiden she gave her heart to the Savior and united with the Presbyterian Church, since which time she has lived a devoted Christian life. When about eighteen years of age she was wooed and won by Mr. John Potter, and as young, daring, hopeful pioneers, they took up their residence in Orwell, where together they lived over sixty years. Mrs. Potter was the mother of eleven children, seven of whom survive her. These are Van Ness Potter, of Oshkosh, Wisconsin; Mrs. Orin Beadle, Alex Potter, Albert J. Potter, all of Orwell; L. D. Potter, of Pulaski; M. D. Potter, of Buena Vista, Colorado, and Mrs. Ellen Pennock, of Orwell. In those early days, church-goers were not kept at home by a sign of rain or by bad sidewalks, or even by worse roads through the forests. Mr. Potter Day saddled horse expressly for the deceased in her younger days, and she used to do her housework, prepare for church, ride eight or ten miles to "meeting," as the service was then called, and arrive on time, also. Like many of our old-time grandmothers, Mrs. Potter was healthy and strong and was never ill until her last sickness, which in about six weeks terminated in her death. The funeral was held from the residence of her son, Alex Potter, Esq., which is across the street from the old family homestead. Rev. Mr. Griffith, of Sandy Creek, officiated at the funeral, which was very largely attended, over thirty loaded sleighs being in the procession. Her four sons, who were present, acted as bearers. The remains were deposited in the Potter cemetery nearby, where so many of her kindred and family friends now are sepulchered. A long and consistent Christian life has peacefully terminated, but a delightful memory of good deeds and a dear mother's love remains.
