Rome Sentinel Aug. 13, 1886

BETSY GRAY Mrs. Betsy Gray, who died on Thursday at the home of her son, Alex Gray, in Rome, four miles west of this city, at the remarkable age of 92 years, was a native of Saratoga county in this state and had been a resident of this county eighty years. Her maiden name was Betsy Resseguie. After her marriage she lived in Westmoreland and Rome. Her husband conducted the Dodge tannery in the Hatch neighborhood sixty years ago and more, and was afterward engaged in farming. Mrs. Gray had seven children, of whom four survive namely; George E Gray of San Francisco, Alex Gray of Rome, Mrs. Sarah J. Howe of Westmoreland and Noah D. Gray of Syracuse. Mrs. Gray was a consistent, life-long member of the Lowell Methodist Episcopal Church and a exemplary woman in all respects, worthily having the esteem of every one who knew her. Though quiet and unassuming she accomplished a great deal and her influence was felt in all her surroundings. It fall to the lot of few to be better thought of than she was. After a well spent and useful life she deserves to go to her reward.
