      Newspaper Obituary - April 1, 1896 Pulaski Democrat - Benjamin Stewart, Jr., son of Benjamin and Patience Look Stewart, was born in Sandy Creek, in 1834, he was the second son of six children, four of whom survive him, Phineas and Esick Stewart and Mrs. James Lighthall of this town and Mrs. Laton Baker, of Sandy Creek. He came to this town in his and with the exception of a few years has since resided in this town in 1859. He united in marriage with Angeline Clark, of St. Lawrence County, who died April 2, 1892, and in October 1896 he was again united in marriage, with Mrs. Gertrude Black, of Williamstown, who with an adopted daughter, Mrs. M.B. Look of this place is left to mourn his less. About thirty years ago he purchased the farm now owned by Eugene Filkins about one mile east of Pulaski village, which he successfully filled until health failed him. He sold it and purchased a smaller one adjoining it where he lived at the time of his death although he had been a constant sufferer for several years he was never known to murmur or complain. Some twenty years ago he united with the Methodist church at Pulaski, and being in poor health he was not an active member, yet his kind and gentle spirit and patient ways and trust in the heavenly father was satisfactory to his friends. His funeral was held from his late residence; the Rev. Webster of the M.E. church officiated and preached a very effective sermon from Numbers II chapter, 10 verse. Some very beautiful flowers were furnished by friends. Although a kind and thoughtful neighbor, a loving husband and an indulgent father has passed away we fully believe that what is their loss is his gain.
