Obituary of Rebecca White Calkins

The obituary pertains to Rebecca White Calkins, the second wife of Jesse Elliott Calkins of Oswego county.  Jesse died in Oswego county in 1920.  I personally know Jesse and Rebecca's granddaughter who is still living at the age of 90.  I descend from Jesse's eldest brother, Charles Salmon Calkins, and have worked many, many hours on the Calkins genealogy. Currently I have located all of the children of Russel C and Pamelia Price Calkins (eleven were born, but one died at age 2) and many of their descendants.
