    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 12, 1883 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - During the past week, two old residents of Richland, Mr. and Mrs. William Tyler, have passed away. Mr. William Tyler died at his residence at Selkirk, April 4th. Had he loved two days longer he would have reached the eighty-seventh mile-stone, marking the years of life. His wife, Mrs. Rhuma Tyler, died April 7th, and would have been eighty-nine years old next July. Her maiden name was Morton, and both she and her husband were natives of Vermont. They were married at Paris, Oneida County, New York, sixty-five years ago the 23rd of last November. The following winter they removed to Onondaga County. They had occupied their residence in Richland over forty-one years, and were unusually esteemed by their acquaintances. By this union five children were born, of whom all are living but one, Miss Dimmis Tyler, who died in 1881. Miss Maria Tyler married Mr. Brazil Smith, of Amsterdam, Sheboygan County, Wisconsin. Miss Laura Tyler became the wife of Mr. Abner Vorce of Selkirk, and has always resided near her parents. Miss Philinda Tyler married Mr. Robert Aird of Pulaski. The only son, Captain Lester M. Tyler, has long been one of the enterprising business men of Pulaski. He followed the lakes for about eighteen years and commanded the propellers Kentucky, Young America, and Ogdensburg, of the Northern Transportation Company's boats. Mr. William Tyler was a soldier in the War of 1812 and could relate many thrilling anecdotes of that sanguinary contest. The dual funeral was held from their late residence on Monday, Rev. G. P. Kenney officiating, and the bodies were interred in the Sand Hill cemetery.
