At the home of her daughter, Mrs. Mary Nichols in Afton, NY., on Tuesday, Feb.9, 1904, occurred the death of Palmyra Leach Curtis, widow of Merritt Daniels, after a long and painful illness. Mrs. Daniels was born in McDonough, October 15, 1821, making her over 82 years old. She was first married to George McIntyre, who died within a year after the marriage. In May 1844, at McDonough, NY., the subject of this sketch became the wife of Merritt Daniels whom she survived by some six years. Four children were born to them, Harvey J. Daniels of Norwich, NY; Mrs. Alice A. Lee of Frankton, Ind; C.A. Ensign, who died at Arborville, Neb., in 1900; and Mrs. Mary Nichols of Afton. Mr. and Mrs. Daniels resided in McDonough till 1878, when they removed to Arborville, Neb. Mrs. Daniels remained there until 1900, when she came east and has since made her home with her daughter, Mrs. Nichols. The warmth of sympathy and tender sentiment which has penetrated the gloomy chill of sorrow has caused us to know as never before, so impressively as to never be forgotten, that she whom we mourn, was the personification of all that was pure and sweet. In character a grand figure of true womanhood and motherly love not even in decrepit age did she live an idle hour did there seem to be any statement of those genuine hospitalizes which have for many years distinguished her home, for her chief glories were gathered there, a loving and constant mother. Time had scattered snow flakes on her brow of four score years, ploughed deep the furrows of her cheeks but was she not beautiful yet? The very air at the old home is laden with her presence, with words of love she will come again and check the tear drop, and lull the pain of parting. When quite young deceased joined the Baptist church at McDonough and has always been active as a church worker. Since returning east she became a member of the Afton Baptist church. Besides those mentioned above, Mrs. Daniels is survived by two brothers and two sisters, John T. Curtis of Somerset, Ky., E.B. Curtis of Washington, D.C., Mrs. Lorena Daniels of Denver, Col., and Mrs. Hattie Fitch of Norwich, NY., and several grandchildren. Funeral services were held from the late home at two o'clock on Thursday afternoon, Rev. H.A. Waite of the Baptist Church officiating, and the remains rest in the Glenwood cemetery.
