    • Sarah Antoinette “Nettie” Dale Sperling - January 18, 1869 - January 21, 1923. Daughter of William and Orinda Allen Dale. Wife of George Lewis Sperling.
      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 31, 1923 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Nettie Dale Sperling - The sudden death of Mrs. Nettie Dale Sperling, wife of Mr. George L. Sperling, of Orwell, which occurred Sunday afternoon, January 21, while she was sitting in her home reading, is one of the very shocking events that come to disturb our order of life. Such a death is inexplainable [sic] and extremely sad, but it not infrequently comes. Mrs. Sperling had been in her usual health and was about her home duties every day. At Christmas time Mr. and Mrs. Sperling were at Littleton, Massachusetts, to visit their daughter, Mrs. Chester A. Wheeler, for the first time since her beginning her homemaking after her marriage in August. It is, indeed, a consolation to the father and daughter that this visit was made. Soon after the close of the Civil War, William Dale, who served in Company C, 186th Regiment, came to the farm, just over the line which separates the town of Albion from the town of Orwell, bringing with him his bride, Orinda Allen, whom he married in Oneida. The farm where they began their life's work was formerly the Wakefield farm, it was adjoining the little homestead of the editor’s father, thus the family of Dales was close neighbors and friends. On January 18, 1869 a daughter was born to Mr. and Mrs. Dale, they named her Nettie and she grew to womanhood on the homestead, becoming the wife of George L. Sperling over thirty years ago. To them were born two daughters, Dorothy and Myrtis. Myrtis was taken from the home by the severest of accidents, and electric shock, while in the hayfield with her father and sister. Mrs. Sperling’s father died in 1906 and her mother in 1909. No one knew Mrs. Sperling but to love her for she had a sweet disposition and a temperament that commanded the love and esteem of all who came into the circle of her friendship and acquaintance. Her death takes from the home a devoted wife and mother and the community at a loyal and worthy citizen. The day of her funeral was one of the worst of the winter which made it impossible for many who desired to attend to get there. Rev. T. T. Davies, of Sandy Creek, conducted the service and spoke words of greatest comfort his tongue could command.
