      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, July 17, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In this village, July 15, 1895, Sarah Maria Burroughs, relict of the late Dr. James N. Betts, aged 73 years.
      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, July 17, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - In Memoriam - On Monday morning, July 15, 1895, at eight o'clock, after a week of unconsciousness, the gentle spirit of Mrs., James N. Betts was set free from its earthly tenement and went back to the God who gave it. Mrs. Sarah Burroughs-Betts was well known and highly respected by a very large circle of friends and acquaintances, and for the past two weeks the question regarding her possible improvement was asked many times a day. This much loved woman, a lady of quiet Christian graces and character, was born in Coventry, Chenango County, in this state, January 12, 1822. On December 24th, 1843, she was married to Dr. James N. Betts, of Greene, in the same county. Here they resided for a few years, subsequently residing in Carthage and afterwards at Syracuse. In the year 1855, or forty years since, Dr. Betts settled in Pulaski, where, for many years, husband and wife toiled with untiring energy and efficiency. Mrs. Betts was a true mother and her love and self-denial for her children knew no bounds. She was thoroughly devoted to her home and a great lover of flowers. These she cultivated most successfully, and many a rare bouquet had been called from her plants for the sick, for funeral services and for church decorations. Mrs. Betts, for many years and up to the time of her death, was an interested member of the Pulaski Baptist church and a contributor to its support. She was especially interested in the construction of the new edifice, so recently completed. Since the death of her husband, which occurred in March, 1892, she has been in failing health and had a serious illness a year since, from which she never recovered. For a few weeks the deceased has been sinking slowly and for several days has been perfectly unconscious, and almost imperceptibly approaching that great and final change which awaits us all. She leaves three sons, A. F. Betts, J. H. Betts and Dr. G. W. Betts, all well-known residents of this village, who through life will tenderly revere the memory of a dear mother who never knew what it was to weary in the care of her family. The funeral services will be held this morning at 10:30 o'clock, at the late residence of deceased, corner of Lake and Broad streets. They will be conducted by Rev. W. W. Boyd, D. D., of St. Louis.
