William E. Averill Dies of Heart Attack

Lifelong Resident Here

William E. Averill, 73, a life-long resident of this village and vicinity, died at his home on Salina street, last Friday afternoon at 2:20. He had enjoyed fair health in the past except for a heart ailment, but Wednesday he was stricken with a severe attack. From this he grew worse until the end came Friday.

Mr. Averill was born in Pulaski, April 20, 1861, the son of Nathan and Rachel Campbell Averill. For many years his home was on a farm near Maltby Corners just north of Pulaski. He was one of the first to be employed by the U.S. government in delivery of rural mail, and served from the local post office until his retirement Nov. 1, 1929.

Since that time he has lived a retired life. On November 15, 1881 he married Carrie Chawgo. She died February 21, 1928, and since her death Mrs. Ward E. Parkhurst has kept house for him.

He was a member of Pulaski Lodge No. 416, F. & A.M. and Pulaski Chapter No. 279, R.A.M. since 1887. He was an attendant and supporter of the Methodist church.

The only surviving relatives are cousins.

The funeral was held from his late home at 3 o'clock Sunday afternoon, Rev. John W. Warren, pastor of the local Methodist church, and Rev. Chas. Bollinger of Watertown, a former pastor of the local church, officiating. The Masonic committal service was used, and Masonic brethren, Andrew Murray, Jr., E.M. Marvin, William Eason, Harry Minnick, S. Lee Remington and Frank Brundage acted as bearers. Burial in Pulaski cemetery.
