    • August 24, 1911 ~ Martha J. Douglas, age 71 years, 2 months, 12 days, Widow, born in Rodman, New York, Daughter of Ebenezer Moody born in New York, and Jane Rogers born in New York, Died in Richland Township of heart disease, probably fatty degeneration, dropsy.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, August 30, 1911 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Thursday afternoon, just before the evening shades settled over the fields on Salmon River's beautiful south bank where she had lived for nearly half a century, peacefully and without warning, other than the decline which had been going on the past few years, Mrs. Martha J. Douglass fell into the long sleep of death and the spirit took its flight to the other world. Martha Moody Douglass was born in Rodman, Jefferson County, June 11, 1840. When ten years of age she came to this town to reside with her parents. At the age of twenty-three she married Isaac Price Douglass and with him took up the stern life of farming on the farm where she had spent all her life, now the summer home of her daughter, Mrs. Harry A. Moody. Mr. Douglass died twelve years ago last January and except the few winters Mrs. Douglass has spent in Brooklyn with her daughter, she has lived amidst the scenes of her home on the banks of the Salmon River, three miles west of the village. She has been in declining health the past few years, but no need that could be anticipated has not been looked after; everything that love, skill and material help could devise has been used to lessen her suffering and restore her to health. Such an expression of regard as has been shown by her daughter is worthy of the title, beautiful consideration. Funeral services were held at Douglaston, Sunday afternoon, at two o'clock, conducted by Rev. H. A. Lawrence, pastor of the Pulaski Congregational church, who spoke of Mrs. Douglass' kindness to friends and deep interest in the things of the future life and the hope she experienced as she realized the close of her earthly pilgrimage was liable to come any time. Misses Jessie Fitch and Emma Mattison sang two selections, "Lead Kindly Light", and "Face to Face". Burial was made in Pulaski cemetery. Many from Pulaski were in attendance and friends were present from far away, including Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Hall, Rochester; Mrs. William Hall, Clay; Harold Hall, Manchester, New York; H. S. Graves, and Mr. and Mrs. Vorce, Parish. Besides her daughter, Mrs. Harry A. Moody, Mrs. Douglass is survived by one sister, Mrs. D. H. Thomas, of Syracuse.
