Mrs. Pulaski Carter dies 1898
(Scranton Tribune, December 10, 1898)

     Another of the early residents of Scranton has passed away. Mrs. Olive Ingalls Carter, widow of the late Pulaski Carter, of the Capouse Works, died at the family residence at 8:30 o’clock Thursday evening (December 8, 1898). She was born in Cantabury, Windham County, Conn., November 13, 1819. She was the daughter of Marvin and Amelia Spaulding Ingalls, both of Puritan ancestry. She was married to Pulaski Carter August 3, 1843. Her entire married life was spent in this city. She has been an invalid for nearly thirty years, so that her quiet life of patient suffering has been known to few outside her intimate friends. She was a woman of unusual strength of character and intellect. During the earlier years of her residence here, she was well known and greatly beloved by those in the vicinity in which she lived, for her many acts of kindness and sympathy to the needy and distressed. She was from early girlhood a member of the Christian church, being a charter member of the church of that denomination in North Scranton.  She is survived by her three children, Pulaski P. and Marvin P, Carter and Mrs. William Moore, of this city. The funeral services will take place at 2 o’clock Monday afternoon (December 12, 1898).
