bullet  General Notes:

Hmm. Can't figure this one out. From the Fulton Patriot paper, 9-26-1923: "Died at her home, 215 S. 3rd st., Rose D. Parkhurst, wife of William Parkhurst, aged 58 years. She is survived by her husband, one son, Harold Parkhurst of Pulaski; one daughter, Lula Parkhurst of Fulton; two brothers, Louis and Frank Rogers of Rector, and two sisters, Mrs. Ida Flint of Palermo and Mrs. Frank West of Vernon Center. Funeral services will be held at the family home this afternoon; interment at New Haven." So I must have this all wrong.

Also this one from the Saratoga Springs NY Saratogian: "The funeral of Mrs. H. Eliza Parkhurst will be held at 2 pm tomorrow at the Kark Funeral Home ... New England Congregational Church... burial in Fairview Cemetery, Quaker Springs."

And this from the Oswego Daily Times 9-21-1897 under Scriba news: "Mrs. Eliza Parkhurst, one of our oldest inhabitants, is very well indeed for her advanced age. She is nearly ninety and has been visiting in Oswego the past few weeks with her granddaughter, Mrs. Charles Brewer." So this is a different Eliza Parkhurst or else some of my facts are wrong.

Mrs. Elizabeth Parkhurst, 59 years old, for many years a resident of this city, but for the past seven years living in Syracuse, was found dead seated in a chair at her home, No. 116 Shonnard street, Syracuse, yesterday afternoon. Heart disease from which she had suffered for some time was the cause of death. Mrs. Parkhurst was the widow of William Parkhurst and lived in Varick street, between Third and Fifth streets, for about twenty-five years. She made her home in Syracuse with her daughter, Lulu A. Parkhurst. While here she was a member of Christ church.
When discoverd by Mrs. Kehoe, a neighbor, Mrs. Parkhurst was sitting in a chair holding a newspaper in her hand. She had been dead half an hour.
