  1. An obituary found in the Owego Record 12-5-1895 reads:
    Died, at Candor, N.Y., Monday, Nov. 18, 1895, of typhoid fever, Miss Rhoda, daughter of Orin Dykeman, aged 26 years. Miss Dykeman was esteemed very highly by a large circle of friends. Her time for several years was passed in teaching in the schools of the county, where her excellent services will be remembered and appreciated for many years. She began a course at the New Paltz normal school Sept. 1, this year, and it was while there that she was stricken by her fatal illness. Her bereaved family have the deep and sincere sympathy of the entire community.

  2. Oh, what a shame! Thanks for taking the time to send a transcript of this clipping. Rhoda no doubt knew some of the people named on the program.
