    Notes 
    • Cheshire, N. Y. - We have to record the death of Mary E. Davis, wife of Wesley Davis, who died Nov. 15th. Mrs. Davis was born in Johnstown, Montgomery county, N. Y., Oct. 26th, 1817. She came to these parts with her parents, John and Catharine Gage, in 1837, and has resided in this locality ever since, with a short exception of trial life in Michigan, which proved most disastrous to her health. She was a most splendid housekeeper and florist, as many who have had reason to admire her yard of nature's beauties in their season. She has served as wife, mother and partner for fifty years, and in her mature age of 70 gives the parting sign that all is well and passes to her rest on the evergreen shore.

      Academy, N. Y. - Mrs. Wesley Davis, who was buried at Academy on the 16th inst., came to this neighborhood in the year 1837 with her parents, two brothers and two sisters, from Johnstown, N. Y. She was the daughter of John and Catharine Gage. She was the last of the family. Her two brothers were drowned in the lake at Hicks' point by breaking through the ice about forty-five years ago. Mrs. Davis was a quiet, amiable woman who took the greatest delight in the intelligent care and cultivation of flowers. Her husband and three daughters survive her. Mrs. Andrew Mentanye, Mrs. Gregoire Insse and Mrs. Isaiah Goff are her daughters. (From Ontario County Journal 25 November 1887)
