Edwin E. Ackerman

Birth: 1852

Death: 1923

Biography:

EDWIN R. ACKERMAN   Among the Christian epitaphs upon the tombs
of the first century are inscribed the following: "Weep not my child,
death is not eternal." "He was born away by angels," "He
sleeps but lives," "He went to God."   Hope of a future life, and endless happiness
in another world took away all fear of the experience we call death. The grave
is not an "eternal home" neither is death an "eternal
sleep," but they are an integral part of God’s plan in the complete
restoration of His children.   "He
sleeps but lives," is essentially true of Edwin R. Ackerman, who passed
away Friday afternoon, March 2, 1923, at his daughter’s home, Mrs. Fred I. Guy,
Lacona, N.Y. For several weeks as he lingered on the border land, he had
expressed a longing to meet again the companions of other days, whom he had
"loved long since, and lost awhile." He had no fear of the transition
and thus he desired to depart, and enter into God’s
perfect rest.   Mr. Ackerman was born
June, 1850, at Herkimer, being one of eight children born to John and Kathryn
Fox Ackerman, he being the last surviving member of his father’s family. His
parents moved to Boylston when the virgin forest attracted enterprising and
aggressive settlers to the vicinity. His father, who was a man of iron will and
business acumen, encountered the hardship incident to pioneer life and worked
heroically to convert a wilderness into usable and productive land.   The departed settled on a farm at Boylston
Center, where also he conducted a general store until the death of his wife,
which occurred about four years ago. Since then his home has been with his
daughter, Mrs. Guy, and his son, Elmer Ackerman who tenderly and lovingly cared
for him during his declining years. His latter days were made sweet and
peaceful by reason of their love and devotion.  
His funeral was held Monday, March 5, at 2 P.M. at his daughter’s home,
Rev. T.T. Davies officiating. The body was committed to the vault at Woodlawn
cemetery, burial to be made in the spring in the family lot at the Wesleyan
cemetery, Boylston. The floral tribute from loved ones was extensive and
beautiful.   He was a man well thought of
by those who enjoyed his confidence and friendship. Retiring in his makeup, yet
to his intimate companions he revealed traits of character that were noble,
generous and good. He acted on the square, honorable in his dealings, upright
in his conduct and faithful in his discharge of duties. It was said by one who
had known him for years that duplicity and underhandness were foreign to his
nature. He was a friend in need and a friend indeed.   "O thou who mournest on thy way, With
longings for the close of days He walks with thee, that Angel kind,  And gently whispers, ‘Be resigned;  Bear up, bear on, the end shall tell  The dear Lord ordereth all things
well."  Source: The Sandy Creek

met. In her last hours she proved her faith in Jesus by testifying to the end
telling of the Holy Spirit and shouting Glory! Glory! Glory! and saying
"Ye, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear
no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me" Then
calling her loved ones to her bedside asked them all to meet her in
heaven.   Those who are left to mourn her

Rope Slipped – Used Knife   Pulaski, Oct.
8 – Peter Van Auken, one of the oldest residents of Boylston, made an alleged
attempt at suicide last evening by cutting his throat with a jack knife.   Mr. Van Auken is 91 years old and for some
time has made his  home with his son, Ira
Van Auken. The family was absent yesterday, leaving the elder Van Auken at home
alone. When members of thefamily returned home last evening the old gentleman
could not be found. A lunch which had been prepared for him was not disturbed,
having been left where placed by Mrs. Van Auken. A search was made and the old
man Van Auken was found in the woodshed. He had secured a dull jack knife and
had cut a long, jagged wound extending across the throat, laying bare and
piercing the windpipe.   Mr. Van Auken
was carried into the house and Dr. Pierce W. Nelson of Orwell was summoned. The
physician took twenty-one stitches in the wound. But slight hopes are
entertained for his recovery.  When the
aged man was found he was semi-unconscious from 
loss of blood. He afterward rallied and stated that he had attempted to
hang hims e lf by throwing a long rope across a beam and attaching it to his
neck, but the rope slipped, he said, and he again tried the experiment, the
second attempt  proving futile. He then
secured the knife and cut his throat. 
Mr. Van Auken, considering his age, was in unusuailly good health and
seemed to be enjoying his declining years. He had been in good spirits and had
not complained of feeling unwell and his home surrouudings are of a pleasant
character.   source: Mexico Independent,

Birth: Nov. 29,  1858 Sandy Creek Oswego County New York, USA

Death: Jan. 5,  1921 Sandy Creek Oswego County New York, USA

Biography:

FRANK J. BLODGETT   Yesterday, January 5, at 12:30 p. m.,
occurred the death of Frank J. Blodgett, a life-long resident of the eastern
part of the town of Sandy Creek. Mr. Blodgett was born Nov. 29, 1858, a son of
the late Miles Blodgett. During his early life, he worked as a tanner in the
employ of his father, who owned several tanneries in this town.   On Dec. 22, 1880, he was united in marriage
to Miss Mary M. Hamer, oldest daughter of the late Thomas Hamer. Soon
afterward, he purchased the farm where he has since resided and to them were
born three children, Allan W., who died April 4, 1919; Bessie M. who died Jan.
6 1905 and Edward F., who with his mother survive.   Less than a week ago, he was stricken with
pneumonia and although for a time, he seemed to be in a fair way to recover,
yet at the critical period, his heart was too weak to rally and he quietly and
peacefully dropped asleep.   During his
life in this community, Mr. Blodgett, by his strict integrity and industry,
came to be a most highly respected citizen. He was a man of sterling worth,
unacquainted with hypocrisy or deception of any kind. He will be greatly missed
in his home where he was best known and loved.  
The funeral will be held from his late home on Sat., Jan, 8, at 1:30
p.m. Burial will be in the Wesleyan cemetery.

Death: Jun. 2,  1927 Oswego County New York, USA

Biography:

MRS. JOHN CHAUFTY   "Touched by the finger of God, she fell
asleep." How beautifully true this expresses the passing away of Mrs.
Jennette Chaufty at her home in the Hemlock District, Boylston, Thursday, June
2, 1927. Several weeks previous to  her
departure, she contracted a severe cold, which developed  into penumonia, which despite the best care
proved fatal.   She was born at McComb,
St. Lawrence county, March 18, 1859, being a daugther of Stephen and Julia Peck
of the same town. She was married to John Chaufty in 1883, who with his two
sons, Ernest Chaufty, South Hannibal, and Arthur Chaufty, living on the old
homestead with his father, survive her. 
With the exception of ‘a few years’ absence, most of her married life
has been spent in Boylston, and on the farm where she passed away. She is also
survived by two sisters and four brothers.  
Her funeral was held Sunday afternoon, June 5, at her late home. A
concourse of mourning friends and relatives, were in  attendance. Rev. T.T. Davies officiated.
Burial in the family lot in Wesleyan cemetery. The floral offering was
extensive and beautiful and many were the expressions of sorrow, because of her
passing away.   Mrs. Chaufty was a woman
greatly beloved by those that knew her. Kind and affable in her disposition,
and ever exerting an influence for good in the community where she was so  well and favorably known. She gave to the
world the best she had, and the best came back to her. "A woman that
feareth the Lord, she shall be praised."

CHENEY   We should think of our departed
friends as living just away in another room of our Father’s house. How near
they are, we do not know but we are ever conscious that they are not very far away.   So nigh are they Tis but a step,  Into their presence bright,  And yet we know, they dwell beyond,  The ken of mortal sight.   Blessed thought in the day of sorrow to
comfort burdened hearts, is, to remember that our loved ones who have passed
through the valley of the shadow of death, are still ours and are still with us
and that the mystic tie of love that united us to them is unsevered. The wife
and mother, Mrs. Martha Ridgeway Cheney, who passed away at her home in

Mrs. M.M. Outterson, Sandy Creek, Mrs. B.F. Clemons, Utica,  Mrs. Myron Nemier, Boylston, Mrs. Milton

As we stand by your open grave we, wonder what God’s unseen plan must
be. that He take one whose life was one of, service and self-denial, while
others are,  left who drift with the
tide, with no, thought of others.   Gone
from a world of sorrow,  Too good for
this world of sin;  So God opened the
gates of heaven  And bade you enter
in.  Weep not that your days are
over,  Weep not, for your work was well
done,  And you have gone to receive the
reward,  Which God has for every
one.  It’s hard to break the tender cord,
When love had bound the heart;  It’s hard
to say, "Dear Father, we must, 
forever part."   But your
loving deeds of kindness,  From our memory
ne’er shall fade.  And our thoughts shall
always linger,  Around the spot where you
are laid.   Peaceful be your sleep, dear
Father,  In your narrow bed so low;  You no more can join our number, Joy and
sorrow never know.   But some day we hope
to meet you,  When the day of life is
fled;  And in heaven we hope to greet
you, Where no farewell word is said.  
Dearest loved one, we have laid you, 
In the silent grave’s embrace, 
But your memory we shall cherish, 
Until we meet you face to face.  
Let your gentle spirit, Father, 
Always be our guiding star;  And
when we, too, are called,  We can live up
where you are .  Source: Sandy Creek

Cornelius Vincent
"Vincent" DeLong

Birth: Feb. 2,  1843 St. Lawrence County New York, USA

Death: Dec. 21,  1913 Pulaski Oswego County New York, USA

Biography:

VINCENT DELONG   Vincent DeLong, who has been seriously ill
since the 19th of July, died at his home on Sunday. The funeral was held at the
house at 1 o’clock Wednesday. Burial at the Wesleyan cemetery, his pastor, Rev.
C.E. Woodly, officiating.  Vincent DeLong
was the youngest child of Cornelius and Nancy DeLong and was born in Hammond,
St. Lawrence county, February 2, 1843. Of his father’s family only one
brother,  Philando  H. DeLong of this, village, survives.    When Vincent was eleven years of age the
family moved to Boylston Oswego county, the conveyance being an ox team. It
took three days to make the journey, the first night being spent at Pamelia
Four Corners and the second at Adams. When the Hagan corner was reached the
route lay east to the Wart tavern and then south to the Archer Corners. From
this to Smartville, where the DeLongs settled was an unbroken wilderness with
but one family, that of David McDougal, who lived on the Jennings hill. A.W.
Fuller was the nearest neighbor on the the north.  Mr. DeLong’s parents settled on a farm just
this side (west of) of Smartville, now owned by Ward Mead. At least two  trips were necessary, by ox team, from the
North Country to secure the household effects. Mr. DeLong and his sons, Charles
H., aged 19, Philando, aged 16 and Vincent, aged 11, had come to their new
homestead of the mother and daughters, and erected a log house, leaving their
ox team and boarding at the David McDougal home on the brow of Jennings hill.
At this time there was no family residing east of what is now known as
Smartville, except possibly a Frenchman who was located where the LeNore mill
stood later. He made shingles and had several ponies which he drove singly on
slips and he would come down with several of these slips one trailing behind-
the other, loaded with shingles, which he would sell for isix shillings a
thousand. Ttte wood and timber were of no account and this was logged and
burned. This section wa s  very heavily
timbered with hard wood and ridges of hemlock. Mr. Philando DeLong recalls that
it was among the heaviest he ever saw. One birch with arms extending sixty feet
each way when cut opened up the forest on all sides. The first winter the
DeLongs cleared eighteen or nineteen acres, and with an ax, corn was put into
the ground and grew immense crops. Large stands of timothy and grain were later
cut on this new land in the first years, which recompensed for the hard labor
andgave promise of abundant yields in years to come, which, however, have in
later years failed to materialize. Now we are liable to blame the climate and
say it is impossible to raise abundant crops in this section,  owing to the early frosts.   When Mr. DeLong was eighteen years of age,
in 1861, he enlisted in the Twenty-fourth infantry under Capt. W.P. Ferguson
who is the Maj. Ferguson, now a resident of Fulton.  In the second battle of Bull Run, he was
wounded and later discharged from Alexandria hospital. In 1862, while on a
furlough, he was married to Miss Elizabeth McDougal. Two years after his first
enlistment the 24th went out as a cavalry regiment. Having enlisted for only
two years, he rejoined the regiment and in making the charge on the works about
Petersburg, he was wounded. He, however, recovered and remained in the service
till the close of the war.   For several
years after the close of this enlistment he remained on the home farm. To Mr.
and Mrs. DeLong were born seven children, six of whom are living: Oliver, of
Belleville; John, of Pratham; Charles, of Orwell; William, St. Lawrence county;
Mrs. Nora Tilton; Sandy Creek, and Mrs. Jesse Shafty of Boylston.  Later Mr. Delong bought the farm where Frank
Robbins now resides, but unfortunately received a forged for this property, and
lost this investment. This was a severe blow to Mr. DeLong. Later he bought the
Henry Shoecraft farm south of Archer Corners which he held till recently. His
wife died about 1900, and a couple of years later he married Mrs. Rose Rude, of
Pulaski, and for some years now they have made their home in this village,
occupying what was formerly the Taylor home on Railroad street, and there the
funeral was held on Wednesday at 1 o’clock, his pastor Rev. C. E. Woodley
officiating. Burial in the Wesleyan cemetery among his kindred.   Mr. DeLong was an ardent church man, and
constant attendant upon divine service, when health would permit. He was highly
esteemed in his home town where most of his life was spent as one of the its
substantial citizens.  Source: Sandy

Nettie May VanAuken Delong

Birth: May 14,  1869 Oswego County New York, USA

Death: Jul. 31,  1930 Sandy Creek Oswego County New York, USA

Biography:

MRS. OLIVER DELONG   Nettie May VanAuken was born May 14, 1869 in
Boylston, N.Y., the only child of Ira M. and Helen VanAuken. She married Oliver
DeLong, November 9, 1887 in Orwell, N.Y., the officiating clergyman being Rev.
J.L. Benton.   Her earthly journey was
finished July 31, 1930, at her home in Sandy Creek where she had been ill for
several months and was cared for with tender devotion by her husband and
daughter. The funeral, which was largely attended, was held at the Wesleyan
church, Sunday afternoon Aug. 3, conducted by her former pastor, the Rev. Otto
M.J. Finch, assisted by her present pastor, Rev. Stanley Lawrence. The text was
taken from Luke 12-20, "This Night Thy Soul Shall he Required of
Thee". "   At the early age of
nine years she was converted, and at fourteen years of age joined the Wesleyan
Methodist church and remained a devoted and consistent member throughout her
entire life. Her beautiful Christian life had a wonderful influence for good to
many other lives. During her long 
illness, while we sympathized deeply in her suffering, it was a joy to
visit her because each time we looked upon her shining countenance we felt that
we had had a glimpse of Heaven in the beautiful smile, which pain, however
great, could not banish, as her love and trust in her Heavenly Father were
above all else to her. It was said of her by one who knew that "she now
has a wonderful mansion in Heaven for she has sent up a lot of beautiful
material with which to build it".  
Those left to mourn her absence from the earthly home are the husband
and daughter, Hazel May Williams, of Cortland, N. Y., and seven grandchildren.
One daughter, Ora Helen Hurst, died at her home, in Derry, N.H., Oct. 5, 1929.
Sister DeLong will be greatly missed by her neighbors and many friends  as well as in the Home and church.   A well loved friend has gone from us to dwell
with our Saviour on high. Let us follow the path in which  she loved to walk, and meet where there’s no
broken tie.  Source: Sandy Creek News,
