History of Richard Peters of Halfmoon, Now Clifton Park, NY & His Descendants Vol. I, II, III, by Leone Peters Kleinheinz

Mrs. Jane Peters, died at Bloomville, March 7, 1879 at the age of 68 years having spent a busy and in many respects an exemplary life. Of slight frame and never physically strong, she showed the spirit of activity and ambition which has characterized the life of her husband.

Her kind disposition and gentle manners deserved and were rewarded with the respect of all with whom she mingled. Her remains are resting beside those of her husband's parents, Richard and Susannah Peters, who after living in Cortland County, returned to Delaware County that they might spend their last days near the scenes of their early married life, and in the year 1853 were within a few weeks of each other laid to rest in the cemetery at Bloomville.

Miss Hannah S. Clark, a well known aged resident of our village, passed away at her home No. 206 Nelson Avenue on Tuesday after a lingering illness in her 86th year. She had been in fairly good health until last winter when she sustained an injury to her hip by a fall. Since that time she has not left her bed.

Miss Clark was born in New York City, Dec. 5, 1831, the daughter of Geo. W. Clark and Maria Southard. At the age of 12 years the family moved to Peekskill. They resided for many years in house which adjoined the Southard-Robertson foundry buildings on the east. Forty years ago with her sister, Miss Charlotte, who is also past her 80th birthday, she built the home in which she died. It was then about the only house in the neighborhood. There they have lived and as the years went by they saw that section of the village grow to be densely populated.
