  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 18, 1867 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Obituary - Said the poet, Keats, "my name is writ in water." As the waters press closely behind the reed or the finger tracing or attempting to trace a record on the waves so the crowding interests of the present hour, the rushing tide of events efface the record, and the remembrance of the noble deeds and the worthy lives even of those who have laid the foundation of all our present advantage and prosperity. The fathers who were the pioneers of our now affluent civilization, who felled the forest trees where stand our dwellings, where now bloom our gardens, or roam our flocks, or rush past our steaming locomotives, fall one by one, like autumn leaves, and are followed with scarce a thought of the greatness and the value of the work they accomplished in their long lives of active and usefulness. Of the early settlers of this town, you have borne a more conspicuous and honorable part than Simeon Doane, Esq., recently deceased. Mr. Doane was born in Rupert, Vermont, August 28, 1786. He was married in November, 1814, and left Rupert in 1815 for this state. He first located in Onondaga County, where he remained but three years, and in 1818 he came to this place. He first settled upon the farm, now owned and occupied by Mr. George Toombs. About three years after he purchased a tract of land where Mr. Thomas Hall now resides, where he remained until 1853, when his son Bernice, now County Clerk and residing in the city of Oswego, took the farm, and his father removed to the village and purchased the house he occupied at the time of his death. He held the office of magistrate for five or six years; also that of poor master, of assessor and school commissioner; in every trust by his integrity, ability and fidelity securing and holding the confidence and esteem of the entire community. He was a subject of a great revival of 1840, and united. May 3, 1840, with fifty-six others, to the Congregational Church of this village. That profession he maintained and honored in a life of Christian fidelity to duty and in Christian meekness of character, which are the best evidence of a true Christian hope; and his last days were attended by that calmness and peace of mind, in the contemplation of approaching death, which the Gospel of Christ alone imparts to the believing heart. He died August 19th, 1866, after a long and lingering illness, accompanied with paralysis. His wife, Mrs. Joanna Doane, with whom he had lived fifty-two years, survived him, but a short time, she having deceased. December 22d of the same year. They had nine children, seven of whom survived them.
