MOFFETT, Frances Pamela Todd8, (Enoch L.7, Daniel6, Daniel5, Daniel4, Daniel3, Samuel2, Christopher1) born Jan. 9, 1843, in East Rodman, N. Y., died after a brief illness in New York City, Jan. 26, 1909, and was buried in the family burial lot in Brookside Cemetery, Watertown, N. Y. She married Jan. 28, 1862, John Fletcher Moffett, of Rodman, N. Y. After their marriage, they went to Watertown, N. Y., to live, where he was employed in the National Bank and Trust Company. Nearly all their subsequent life was passed there, and practically in the same house, which stood where the Asbury Methodist Church now stands, of which society they both were members.
Mrs. Moffett’s beauty of character, as well as grace, endeared her to all who knew her. She was always active in charitable and philantrophic work of all kinds, yet notwithstanding all these activities, her home life was her chief and dearest care and her children “rise up and call her blessed.” She was educated in the district school and in 1856, she attended the Black River Institute in Watertown, N. Y., in 1857, she went to the Belleville Academy in Belleville, N. Y., which she attended for two years.
