  • Notes 
    • Charles David Edwards - 1864 - April 17, 1937. Plot B-376. Son of David and Mary Ferber Edwards. Husband of Katherine Shepherd “Kate” Maltby Edwards. Married July 19, 1889 at Sandy Creek, New York.
      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, April 21, 1937 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Charles Edwards Dies in Syracuse - Native of England - Long in Meat Business Here - Charles David Edwards, 73, retired farmer and meat dealer, died at the home of his sister, Mrs. Edith Edwards Rudes, Syracuse, Monday, April 17, about 1 p.m., after more than two years of declining health. Mr. Edwards was widely known throughout this section for many years as a meat dealer, operating a peddling service, a business in which he started when a youth still in his teens and continued until 1911, when he retired from that and gave his entire attention to the management of his farm on lower Lake street. The farm he later sold to his son-in-law, Lawson M. Lighthall, but he and Mrs. Edwards continued their home there. In October 1935 the farm home burned with almost a total loss of household and personal effects and since that time Mr. Edwards had been in a weekend and feeble condition. He was a man of steady habits and unquestioned integrity and honesty. During the many active years of his life he applied himself closely to his work, spending his few leisure hours in his home in his almost only diversion, reading. Mr. Edwards was born in England in 1864, a son of the late David and Mary Ferber Edwards. He came to America with his parents when a lad of 7, and early in life took on the work and responsibilities of a man. He knew what hard work was and never shirked arduous tasks. The early home of the Edwards family was on lower Lake street, where Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Godsmark now live, and later in the Maltby Corner neighborhood on upper North street. It was when they lived there that he met and married Miss Katie Maltby in July 1889, who survives him. Surviving, besides the widow, are two daughters and two sons, Mary Edwards Ellis (Mrs. Jay Ellis) of Auburn; Jennie Edwards Lighthall (Mrs. Lawson Lighthall) of this village; Frank Edwards, also of Pulaski, and Thomas R. Edwards of Boston, Massachusetts. Another son, Robert Edwards, died in France when serving in the world war. It was for the latter that the local post of the American Legion was named. There also survived two brothers and two sisters, Archie Edwards of Pulaski; Leonard Edwards of Syracuse; Edith Edwards Rudes (Mrs. Emerson Rudes) Syracuse, and Gwendolyn Edwards Adsit, of Albany, and eight grandchildren. Another child, Charles died in infancy. The funeral will be held from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Lawson Lighthall tomorrow afternoon at 2:30, with burial in the family plot in the local cemetery. Rev. Lee A. Howe, Jr., pastor of the Baptist church will officiate.
