ACKLEY and
wife of Tiffany T. KENYON, died May 15th, 1878, aged
eighteen years and twenty-seven days. She was always
frail, yet the struggle between life and death was long and
her sufferings great. If the untiring attention of loving friends
could have lured her back to health, her presence would
still enliven the home now made desolate by her departure.
She was her mother's comfort and the joy and pride of her
father and brothers; and yet one came with a love so pure
and strong, that he took foremost place in her affections.
But the bride of five short months is taken from his embrace;
and early in life he drinks of that bitter cup of whose dregs
none know but those who have been called to drain it. The
funeral services were attended by Rev. A. J. Cook, at the
Baptist church, which was filled with sympathizing friends,
and surrounded by the freshness and beauty of this springtime;
with tears they laid that precious body away to rest. The
years may come and go, and life's duties press heavily upon
those left behind, but in their hearts will be a place ever sacred
to the memory of the gentle loving one, who has gone from
their midst. Mount Vision, June 7th, 1878. She appeared in the census 1860, 1865, 1870 & 1875 in New York, United States. Clarissa was buried in Mount Vision Cemetery, Laurens, Otsego, New York.51
