    • Julia A. Gates - April 22, 1846 - March 7, 1924. Daughter of Robert T. and Theresa Parish Gates. Wife of Daniel B. Wood. Married May 5, 1864.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, March 19, 1924 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Julia Gates Wood was born near Fernwood, April 22, 1844. She was the daughter of Theresa Parish and Robert T. Gates. She was the eldest of ten children only two being left, Mrs. F. A. Willis of Fernwood and Dr. R. F. Gates of Brownville. May 5, 1864 she was united in marriage with Daniel B. Wood and lived in or near Fernwood until about 40 years ago when they came to reside in the pleasant home where she died. To them were born four children, E. Eugene, who died several years ago; George E., of New York City; Carrie, of Pulaski; and Frank H., of Brownville, who with the husband and four grandchildren, Clarence, of California; Elsworth and Florence of New York City; Vernice, of Brownville; and Ruth Whitney of Pulaski, are left to mourn. She was a great lover of flowers and about her home bloomed many of which she always loved to share with others. At an early age she united with the M. E. church. About one year ago she was taken ill and has been in feeble health since but had been confined to her room only about eight weeks. She remained cheerful and thoughtful of others to the very last. All was done for her that kind hearts and loving hands could do, but on the morning of March 7th, she quietly slipped away from this world to join those gone on before. The funeral was held from her late home Monday at 2 p.m. Rev. C. T. Holcombe officiated, assisted by Rev. William MacLeod of the Congregational church. The floral tributes were many and very beautiful. She was laid to rest in the Willis cemetery. The following is taken from her mother's obituary, who died May 5, 1900 at the age of 80 and nothing could be more fitting said of her than this. "As a mother she was kind, and indulgent. She early learned that the secret of a happy life was a firm trust in God, which she maintained to the end of her earthly pilgrimage. As a friend and neighbor she was thoughtful and true. One rule of her life seemed to be 'to do good as you have the opportunity.' This rule she ever tried to put into practice, consequently her life was marked by deeds of charity. Her Christian life has been long and consistent, and useful. She was a faithful wife, a loving mother, a kind and sympathetic neighbor and an earnest Christian." C.W.W.
