The death Monday morning, of Eliza Agate, removed a life-time resident of this town [Pittsford]. She was a daughter of the late John S. Agate and Emily Beers Agate, and was born at the Agate homestead three miles southeast of this village. The latter part of her life was spent in the village, and for three years, since the death of a sister, her home has been with her sister, Mrs. E. W. Gaskin, where she died after a brief illness. She leaves her sister, Mrs. Gaskin, and two brothers, William and John S. Agate, all of Pittsford.

Her death recalls the early history of the town of Pittsford as her grandparents, William and Mary Agate, were among the pioneer settlers. They arrived from England in 1795, and came to Pittsford in 1798, where they endured many hardships of frontier life, and lived to be nearly nonagenarians. They journeyed by ox-team from New York, bringing only what they could load on one sled. They build a log cabin the same year and began the real hardships, which were severe for persons who had been accustomed to the luxuries of England. But they lived to change their forest home into fertile fields and blooming orchards.
