      Carrie Josephine Eaton - November 22, 1872 - October 29, 1925. Plot A-93. Daughter of James A. and Sarah Ann Bohannon Eaton.
      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, November 4, 1925 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Carrie J. Eaton - On Saturday last the people of this village were greatly shocked to learn of the sudden death of Miss Carrie J. Eaton, at Richmond Hill, New York, where she was engaged as a teacher in the public school No. 90. Miss Eaton was born and reared in this village. She was a graduate of the Pulaski Academy and High School, and the class of 1893. She was also graduated from the Jamaica Normal School and she also taught and devoted most of her mature years to the profession of teaching. At one time she taught in the Altmar High School and she also taught in the Pulaski Academy and High School. For the past seventeen years she had taught in the Richmond Hill Grammar School No. 90. The high esteem in which he was held by her associates was attested to the fact that the school was closed the day after her death. The principal, Professor John A. Loope, Miss Agnes Tuthill and Miss Annie Knapp, two of her associate teachers, attended the funeral, which was held at the home of her mother on Bridge street in this village on Sunday last. A short service was also held at Miss Eaton’s rooming house at Richmond Hill on Friday, October 30th. Miss Eaton was a member of the Baptist church of this village, and the pastor of that church, Rev. W. S. Warren, officiated at the funeral. She had always spent her summers in her old home and she was known to nearly everyone in the village. She is survived by her mother, Mrs. Sarah A. Eaton, of this village, a brother, H. Avery Eaton, of Worchester, Massachusetts, and a sister, Mrs. W. C. Miller. While her life work has ended, its influence will continue. She was a member of one of the most important and noble list of professions, a profession in which those engaged have an opportunity to instill into the minds of the young, high ideals, and, by their example and character, to influence the lives of their pupils. No one can estimate the good that she did by reason of her example and noble Christian character. No one who ever knew Carrie Eaton ever questioned her sincerity or lofty purpose in life. She stood for that which was best and, with all, she was intensely practical. She was a loyal dependable friend, a woman who had the respect of everyone with whom she came in contact. Her life book is closed, but possibly her greatest influences yet to be felt in the lives of those to whom she was a faithful teacher. The bearers at the funeral were Frederick A. Clark, Frank P. Betts, H. Avery Eaton, Karl Eaton Miller, James Frederick Miller and William C. Miller. The following persons from out of town were present: Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Miller, Mr. Karl Eaton, and Mr. James Frederick Miller, Baltimore; Mr. and Mrs. H. Avery Eaton, Worcester, Massachusetts; Mrs. Louisa Miller Seemann, Miss Emma D. Miller, Miss Mathilda D. Miller, Miss Hattie E. Miller, and Miss Nellie N. Miller, of Utica, New York; Mr. John A. Loope, Miss Agnes Tuthill, and Miss Annie Knapp, of Richmond Hill, New York; Mr. and Mrs. E. F. Williams, Mrs. Blanche McDonald and Miss Adeline Klock, of Syracuse, New York; Mrs. W. B. Baker, of Gloversville, New York; Mr. and Mrs. W. G. Scott, of Liverpool, New York; Capt. Albert D. Nelson, of Orwell; Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Ingersoll, of Sandy Creek; Mrs. Edward Barnard, of Theresa; Miss Anna Bard, Mrs. George Cole, Miss Ida Patton and Mrs. Ballard, of Mexico.
