      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 25, 1905 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died, at Fernwood, New York, January 20, 1905, Harriet S. Edick, aged eighty-nine years and twenty-eight days. Harriet Scott was born in Unadilla, Otsego County, New York, December 23, 1815, and was the daughter of Seth and Amey Scott, who had a family of seven children, three daughters and four sons, all of whom have passed over to the other side, she being the last to go. When she was twelve years old her parents moved to this town with an ox team by aid of marked trees and settled near Fanwood. She has lived in that vicinity ever since. She has frequently given many interesting reminiscences of the hardships of those earlier days. January 21, 1836, she was married to William Edick, who died September 6, 1876. Had she lived until the next day, it would have been the sixty-eighth anniversary of her wedding day. Soon after their marriage they went to live on the Edick homestead, now occupied by her grandson, Grant Edick, where she lived until about two years ago, when on account of increasing age and impaired eyesight, she went to live with her daughter, Mrs. Esther J. Nicholson, and has been tenderly cared for by Mrs. Nicholson, assisted by her brothers and sisters. She had seven children, two of whom are deceased. The names of the living are Mrs. Esther J. Nicholson, George Edick, John W. Edick, Mrs. B. E. Parkhurst and Mrs. G. H. Perry and ten grandchildren, Mrs. Charles L. Palmer, Will J. Nicholson, John W. Parkhurst, Mrs. Frank W. White, Walter Nicholson, Mrs. H. A. Woods, Mrs. Fred I farvey, Grant Edick, Ward B. Parkhurst and Grace Perry, also thirteen great-grandchildren. The funeral was held at the home of Mrs. Nicholson, Sunday, at 1 p.m., Rev. MacMickle officiating. There were beautiful floral tributes, among which was a pillow with the words "At Rest." The singing was by the Fernwood quartet, who rendered "Shall We Meet Beyond the River?" and "Farewell Mother." She was a kind and loving mother and has gone to meet the loved ones who have passed on before, for which time she had long been waiting. B.E.P.
