1833 - 1900
Norwich [Chenango Co., NY]: Milo McCarty died at his home on Locust street on Thursday morning, aged 67. His health had been failing for several years and more rapidly during the past 12 months, but death came with only a few hours' warning. Asthma had caused him much suffering, but paralysis was the immediate cause of death. Mr. McCarty was born February 2, 1833, in the town of Sherburne [Chenango Co., NY], but when he was a child the family moved to Wood's Corners, so that practically his whole life had been spent in the town of Norwich. He attended the district school and started in life as a farm hand with Cyrus Brown at Plasterville. He afterwards worked at wagon making and later was employed for a number of years in the Maydole hammer works until his health failed and he sought outdoor employment. His long residence gave him a wide acquaintance and he made many friends among whom he was highly esteemed. He was a member of the Broad Street M.E. Church. In November, 1854, Mr. McCarty married Catherine Farrell, who survives him, together with one son, Isaac F. McCarty, of New York city and one daughter, Mrs. Katie Woodard, of this village. One sister, Mrs. Albert Smith, also survives, residing in Towanda, Pa. Funeral services will be held from his late home at 2 o'clock tomorrow (Saturday) Afternoon, Rev. Wilson Treible officiating. Interment in Mount Hope [Norwich, NY].

She was a woman of quiet demeanor and possessed of many fine qualities which endeared her to all with whom she came in contact. Mrs. McCarty was a consistent member of the Broad Street M.E. church and as long as her health permitted was an active worker in the work of the church. Deceased is survived by one son and one daughter, Isaac F. McCarty of Brooklyn and Mrs. Wallace Woodard of this place; also a nephew, Rev. W. S. Crandall of Scranton and a niece, Mrs. Roselbert Belden of Norwich.
