Ellen J Gould in Westfield Newspaper
Thanks! I'm glad happy to do a little long distance snooping!

So I was just looking up the grave site of the man who built our house in 1907 in Westfield New York, when I ran across this website. I thought since I was out there looking for a name anyway, I may as well take a list of other names to look for too. I was so curious about the missing death date on the Gould tombstone, that I had to find out what happened to Ellen! Glad it's of use. The http://nyshistoricnewspapers.org website has digitally archived Westfield newspapers from 1800s to 1927 (Her name and Sanford pop up several times on a search of the archives, but it's mostly social mention and small town news).

Here's the snippet that mentions her in PA on May 31, 1905

Here's the mention of her estate on Oct. 24, 1906

RE: Sanford Gould grave photo
You're more than welcome. Here's a link to his obituary in the local paper. I was curious about his wife Ellen, and a newspaper search had her living in Bear Lake, PA in 1905. She passed away in 1906 and left a portion of her estate to care for the grave site, but it didn't say anything about her final resting place. Good luck with your search!

RE: Riverside Cemetery in Pulaski
I think this link should work to go to the obit for Milton in the Pulaski Democrat, Dec 8, 1916.

Here is the link for Mary's obit, Pulaski Democrat, Aug 19, 1914:

RE: Riverside Cemetery in Pulaski
I was able to find an obit and date of death for Milton, Dec 3, 1916, in the village of Pulaski, but so far no luck on Mary.

RE: Riverside Cemetery in Pulaski
Hi! I don't know that there is an actual address or cemetery association for Riverside. However, you can contact the Town of Richland clerk, Robert North, for more info:

Town of Richland Town Clerk
1 Bridge St., Pulaski NY 13142

(315) 298-5174

Also I know that there isn't a complete record of every burial in the cemetery, or the locations. It's not a big cemetery, but for years was maintained and cared for by the Gates family. When the last of them died the Town of Richland took over, and didn't get all the records. We asked Robert North about it, due to an issue with a family burial lot, and he told us that there are a gaps in the records. In some instances there isn't a reliable record of the number of graves that have actual burials in the lots, and in other cases there isn't proof of who bought a lot, or exactly where. The Gates didn't write down some of the info, and just kept it in memory and now that is lost. It's sad. Are there specific people you are looking for?
