CORNISH - Obituary MAC DOUGALL, (CORNISH) EMILY
The funeral services of Mrs. Theo. McDougal were held Friday morning at 11 o’clock, at her late home in Veteran. The Rev. Wm. H. Yard of Horseheads, officiated, and interment was made in the Vary cemetery. Mrs. McDougal’s maiden name was Emily Cornish. She was born in Tompkins county, August 21, 1849, and is survived by her husband and two sisters, Mrs. John L. Carpenter of Elmira and Mrs. Judson Primmer of Kenzual, Pa. Since her marriage she has always lived in Veteran, and her death removes from that place a respected resident from the church, a faithful sister from the home a beloved wife. The ??? and tribulation which prevented this faithful woman from performing her household duties, cut her off from social life and from the ?? of the served, only made her faith in him stronger. When her spirit answered the summons to return to Him who gave it she surrendered to her Maker, saying, “Not my will but Thine be done”, and in departing left an example of true Christian living whose sweet and ennobling influence will ever dwell in the hearts and appear in the lives of those she knew best. The bereaved husband and family wish to thank the many kind friends who administered to her in her sickness and them in their bereavement.
Wrs note: Her husband, Theodore, was Grandson of Veteran Pioneer John McDougle, Jr.
