Obituary-Cortland Democrat (undated)
TAYLOR
Mrs Samuel Bush died Thursday
morning at an early hour after an ill-
ness extending over several months.
About a year ago she was found to be
afflicted with that terrible disease,
cancer. She went to Dr. Kilmer's
sanitarium at Binghamton for treatment,
returning home after about two
months seemingly cured of the cancers.
Soon afterward she had a shock
and has constantly grown worse until
the end. Though she was a great suff-
erer, she bore it all without a murmur
and when friends and neighbors called
to see her, greeted them with a smile
or a pleasant word. Mrs. Elizabeth
Oliver Bush was born in Taylor, Sep-
tember 2, 1845, being 60 years, 4 |
months and 29 days of age, being a
daughter of the late Aaron Oliver. In
the fail of 1861 she was married to Le-
ander Cotton who was killed at the
battle of South Mountain three months
afterward. Jan. 1, 1863, she was unit-
ed in marriage with Samuel Bush. Of
this union eleven children were born,
four being dead. Those who survive
are Henry of Truxton, May of DeRuy-
Minnie (Mrs. Floyd Yeaw) of
Pitcher, Leander of Pharsalia, Frank
and Willie of this place; also Jessie,
(Mrs Elna Phillips). The surviving
brothers and sisters are, Orlando Oliver
of Rochester, Nathan of Cheningo,
William of Taylor, Phebe who is an in-
mate of the Binghamton asylum for
the insane, Mrs Eben Bush and Mrs.
Chester Bush of Truxton. One sister,
Mrs. Jared Lord of South Dakota and
a brother Jackson Oliver of Cayuga
Co.. being dead. The deceased was a
resident of this and nearby towns all
her life, and had a large circle of
friends and acquaintances, and was re-
spected by all who knew her. A good
wife and loving mother is gone, but
the memory of her will be cherished
by those to whom she was near and
dear, as the years go passing on. She
was a firm believer in the christian re-
ligion and her life was a living example
of its teachings. The funeral services
were held at the house Saturday
Rev. George W. Taft officiating, who
spoke words of comfort to the sorrowing
husband, children and relatives, to
whom the sympathy of the entire com-
munity goes not from the fullness of
their hearts.
