The Obituary of Esther Andruss

13 February 1847 - 11 July 1927

From the Naples Record, 20 July 1927

Miss Esther Andruss, daughter of George and Sarah TerBush Andruss, born February 13, 1847, in Canadice, died at her home in Hemlock on Monday, July 11, 1927.

Miss Andruss united with the Canadice M. E. Church at the age of thirteen years, and was a conscientious worker in church and Sunday School while among us. On moving to Hemlock in 1882 she transferred her membership to that place, where she was always a faithful worker for every good cause. She held many offices in church and Sunday School and was a perpetual member of the Woman’s Home Missionary Society, also a member of the W. C. T. U. since its organization in Hemlock. Miss Andruss held a large place in the community at Hemlock.

She is survived by two sisters, Mrs. John Beam and Mrs. G. H. Nelson, wife of the present pastor of the M. E. Church at Hemlock.

The funeral services were held from the home last Wednesday at 2 p.m., Rev. Ernest Sanderson, a former pastor, officiating. Interment in Woodlawn cemetery, Canandaigua.


From the Steuben Courier, 29 July 1927

Miss Esther Andruss, an octogenarian whose life had been passed in or near the town of Canadice, died at her recent home at Hemlock. She was the oldest sister of the late Dr. Cornelius J. Andruss, for several years the oldest practicing dentist in Cananadaigua, and her maternal grandfather was one of the original stock holders for building this branch of the Erie railroad and thought he lost his mind in old age, he never forgot the loss of $1,000 he sustained in the railroad deal.

She leaves two sisters, Mrs. John W. Beam and Mrs. George Nelson, of Hemlock.
