Lauton Pettit
Lauton, Pettit died at his home in
Somerset yesterday morning, after an
illness of two months. He was one of
the oldest men in Niagara county and
had he lived until the 29th of this
month he would have been 89 years of
age. At the age of 28 years he left
his home in Saratoga and traveled by
canal to Wilson, N. Y., where he
bought a tract of land and cleared it
of timber. About 1840 he sold his
home in Wilson and bought a farm at
Lake Road in the town of Somerset,
where he has since resided.
He was always a man of sterling
worth and the community will greatly
miss one whom they have been accustomed
to see, and whose cheery
word they have so long heard.
His only son, Joel H. Pettit, died
three years ago, and his only descendants
are his three grandchildren,
Gaylord, Glenn and Walter Petitt, all
of this city.
The funeral services will be held at
his late residence at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
Burial will be in Somerset.
