Rufus Day

Rufus Day, an old and respected resident of Macomb, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Albert Kitts, in Henderson, Jefferson County, Thursday forenoon, after a long and painful illness of blood poisoning, aged 71 years.  Mr. Day was attacked several months ago with blood poison in one of his legs which soon developed into gangrene which effected the entire system.  Mr. Day was born in Macomb, a son of the late David Day.  For many years he followed the occupation of farming.  For the past quarter of a century he had conducted saw and grist mills being engaged in that line of work for some years at Richville.

For a time, many years ago, he was in charge of the engine at the Gouverneur marble works.  Six years ago he went to Henderson with his daughter and family, where he had since resided.  Mr. Day’s wife died about 25 years ago.  Besides his daughter, Mrs. Kitts, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. George Smith, of this village, and Mrs. Kentner, of Lisbon, and one brother, Silas Day, ** customs officer of Ogdensbug.

The remains were brought here on the 11:05 train Friday forenoon and were taken directly to Pierce’s Corners, the former home of the deceased for burial.  Services were conducted by the Rev. Erastus Pratt and burial was made in the family plot in Macomb Cemetery.
