  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, March 27, 1879 Pulaski Democrat ¬ Pulaski, New York - Died - McKinney - In Orwell, March 24, 1879, Chauncey McKinney, aged 75 years and 7 months.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 3, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Orwell - Another one of our oldest citizens has been called to his final rest. Mr. Chauncey McKinney, died Monday, March 24th, at 4 o'clock p.m.. He was only sick about one week, the physician pronounced it typhoid pneumonia. Deceased was 75 years old, he seemed to have a presentment from the first that he would not be any better in this world and was willing and ready to go. He had been Deacon in the Congregational Church of this place for many years. His presence will be missed very much.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 10, 1879 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - McKinney - In Orwell, New York, March 24th, 1879, after a brief illness, Chauncey McKinney, in the seventy-sixth year of his age. Deacon McKinney was for more than fifty years a well-known and much esteemed resident of Oswego County. Born in Tolland, Connecticut, in 1803, in 1828 he married Miss Sophia D. Hunt, and together they started immediately to make a home in the wild and sparsely settled town of Redfield, New York, where a few Connecticut people had preceded them. They found there two church organizations; and in 1831 Mr. McKinney made a profession of faith in Christ, and united with the Presbyterian Church of Redfield, which the writer believes to be the oldest church in Oswego County. A residence of thirty-seven years in that town endeared him to a very large circle of friends. A member and trusted officer of the church, his daily life witnessed to the genuineness of his Christian profession, and found him devoted to the interests of his Redeemer's kingdom. In 1866, he removed to the adjoining town of Orwell. There himself and his son, Mr. Dwight McKinney, united their interests in the purchase and occupancy of one of the finest farms in that prosperous town. He was soon chosen deacon of the Congregational church in Orwell, in the same sterling qualities of conscientiousness, honestly, kindness of heart, and faithfulness to Christian principle, made his service in the church invaluable, and gave him a social influence in the town which was pronounced and widely felt. All esteemed him, all loved him; and upon the day of his funeral it was a gathering of genuine mourners that crowded his home to pay the last tribute of respect to their honored dead. Although seventy-five years of age, he was not removed by his years from an active interest in all that concerned the welfare of this town. Almost to the day of his death his counsel was sought, and his service offered to his townsmen, in the project of church improvement. He passed away quietly and peacefully. The Redeemer in whom he humbly trusted had robbed death of his terror and his sting. Deacon McKinney leaves a widow with whom he spent more than fifty years of wedded life, two sons, and a married daughter, Mrs. A. G. Stowell of Mexico, New York.OA
