      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, February 28, 1900 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Fernwood - A cloud of sadness settled over our entire community as the news spread that Mr. J. Perry was dead. He was taken ill on Sunday but grew rapidly worse and on Monday it was considered necessary to have a counsel in regard to his disease. Dr. Smith, of this place having the case in charge, advised to call Dr. More, but all their efforts to relieve the sufferer were fruitless. On Tuesday Dr. Low and son were called and decided of his life was saved an operation was necessary. A specialist from Syracuse was called on Wednesday who said it was of no use, death would soon relieve him, and so it proved, as at about 10:30 he died. Everything was done that loving hands could do to relieve this intense pain. Mr. Perry was born and grew to manhood in this place just west of the village. The family consisted of father and mother, who have long since passed over the river, three brothers and three sisters. The first to join the long mourned parents was Mr. William Perry. There are left to mourn his loss, a devoted and loving wife and daughter, Mrs. Herman Pratt; both are heart broken and crushed at this sudden affliction; also Mr. L. M. Perry, Mrs. I. J. Rich, Mrs. M. L. Dunbar, of Fernwood, and Mrs. Brayton Burdick, of Albion. In his death the community has lost a good citizen and the church looses heavily. But the hand of Him who chasteneth will comfort, is sure for He who gave the life and took it again has said so in His word. That he was respected and loved was shown by the large concourse of people who assembled at his late home on Saturday to pay their last tribute of respect. Rev. Marshall officiated, assisted by Rev. Christman. Interment took place at Willis cemetery. Friends from Boylston, Orwell, Pulaski, Prattville, and Mexico were present.
