  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, February 6, 1901 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - William Strong - Monday morning at half-past three, after nearly eighty-seven years in this life, Mr. William Strong closed his earthly career and his spirit was taken to the God who gave it. Mr. Strong was the son of Eli Strong, one of the pioneers of eastern Oswego county, and was born in Orwell, February 12, 1814, thus had he lived until next Tuesday he would have attained the advanced age of 87 years. He spent the early part of his life with his father in farming, in the town where he was born. In 1844 he married Chloe West, who died three years ago. In 1867 he removed to this village. While a resident of Orwell he was prominently connected with the affairs of the town representing the people in the board of supervisors. During his retired life he has been out of public service yet he has been very much interested in the affairs of the town. He has been a lifelong Democrat and faithfully supported the faith of the party. Socially Mr. Strong was very cordial and always had a pleasant word for those he met His presence on our streets will be greatly missed and though he had lived beyond the allotted time there was still hope that the close would be deferred a little longer. A daughter, Mrs. Sarah Allen and a granddaughter, Miss Carrie B. Allen survive him. The funeral will take place from the residence on Jefferson avenue at half-past one, this afternoon.
