Mrs George W. McNERMER Obit.
  Mrs. Lillian SUTTON McNERMER died 17Jun----.  She was born one of  3 children of  Mr. & Mrs. Harrison SUTTON who were old-time residents of  western Reading, NY.  Lillian SUTTON was born 22Dec1853.   A sister died in 1850 & the late Harry SUTTON of Reading was a brother, he died abt 2 years ago.  She was the last one of that immediate family, her life was spent in the vicinity of  her birth.  Married 9Dec1874 to George W. McNERMER.  Their golden wedding anniversary was observed in connection with Old Home Day at Grange Hall, Reading Center 13Sep1924.  They have 1 dau Grace who married Leon H. McINTYRE of Reading.  She became a member of the Baptist Church in Reading when abt 15 yrs of age.  Was a charter member of the local WCTU; she was in direct line of  3 pioneer families of  Reading.  On her father's side, she descended from John SUTTON who settled in Reading in 1808, coming from Ovid, NY.  He built a log cabin and purchased a large tract of land in Central Reading.  Her father was born there, but it was at a later time the family home was built on the farm now known
as the LOTT Farm.  Nathaniel SUTTON, the eldest child of John, was the grandfather of  Mrs. McNERMER and his first wife was Phoebe PECK...Harrison SUTTON was a son of  this mariage.  The PECK & SUTTON families are closely related as both Jason and Tenant PECK married daughters of John SUTTON.  The PECK family came from Greene County, NY and settled in Reading in 1808.  The mother of  Lillian SUTTON (Mrs. McNERMER) was Maria EGGLESTON SUTTON, a dau of Andrew EGGLESTON who settled in Reading at a later time, abt 1830, coming from Saratoga Co., NY.  He made a home at Hall's Corners in western Reading.  It is a remarkable fact that the EGGLESTON home has always remained in possession of  the family.  It was there that Mr. & Mrs. McNERMER began housekeeping 50 yrs ago.  It is historical that in those early years there were three routes that lead to the Lake Country --  The first was the Northern Route up the Mohawk River into Central NY;  the second through Cooperstown, Unadilla & Ithaca;  the third was up the Delaware River through the watershead of the Susquehanna, leading on up the Chemung.
  The SUTTONS traveled the third route and the PECK family came by way of the Central route, the EGGLESTONS came from Saratoga by way of the Erie Canal.  The wilderness road was an ox trail through which they journeyed with great trees over spreading.  These were felled to build the rude log cabins and later furnished material to build the commodious homes we have today.  The surviving family are:  The husband G. W. McNERMER; a dau Mrs. L. H. McINTYER; 2 granddaughters Freda and Flora McINTYRE of  Reading, NY.-- And several cousins, among which are: Mrs. Emma LaFEVER of  Los Angeles, Calif.; Oscar TOWNSEND of Yuma, Arizona; M. W. SUTTON, Dundee, NY; John LOTT; Mrs. Catherine SANFORD & A. M. SUTTON of Reading; Mrs. J. T. FINLAN, Dundee.
