      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, October 16, 1912 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Death Claimed Him As He Sat in Chair - Alfred N. Beadle, Another Veteran of the Civil War, Is Gone - Alfred N. Beadle, aged 77, was found dead in his chair Sunday evening at the home of Timothy Lawler, in Lake Street, where he had been boarding for several weeks. He had been gathering a fruit crop near what is known as the Black Hole on the Salmon River the past week and had not been feeling well. Mr. Beadle was about as usual in the afternoon, took a short walk about the village, returning to the Lawler home at about six o'clock. Mrs. Lawler entered the reception room and as she went to the chair in which he was seated found him dead. Dr. Charles E. Low was called, but his services were not required. Mr. Beadle had been dead several minutes. Mr. Beadle was born in the town of Orwell, April 14, 1837, and many years ago was engaged in the hardware business in Pulaski, as a member of the firm of Beadle, Hollis & Lyman. In 1881 Mr. Beadle was appointed by Sheriff Edward L. Huntington, then of Mexico, as deputy sheriff and jailer at the Pulaski Court House, and in 1885 he was elected Sheriff of Oswego County. Since that time he had made his home in Oswego. Mr. Beadle was a veteran of the Civil War, serving in Company E, One Hundred and Forty-seventh Regiment, New York Volunteers, and is a past commander of J. B. Butler Post, G.A.R., of Pulaski. He had been a member of Pulaski Lodge No. 415, F. and A.M. since 1865. Surviving are three daughters, Mrs. Robert Barnett and Miss Cynthia Beadle, both of Oswego, and Mrs. Alexander Gordon, of Pittsburg, Pennsylvania.

      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 23, 1912 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - In the Village - The friends of the late A. N. Beadle went through here, Thursday afternoon, with the remains of Mr. Beadle and went to Orwell where burial was made in Evergreen cemetery. Members of the J. B. Butler Post, G.A.R., met the funeral party and accompanied them to Orwell where they performed the burial rites of the Post.

      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 30, 1912 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - A Memory - “Good Morning!” This was the salutation of Alfred N. Beadle whether you met him morning, noon or night, and with his kind heart and pleasant voice it always reached the heart of the hearer. On the evening of Sunday, October 13, 1912 he “Crossed the Bar,” and we believe in the same voice and way saluted the loved ones on the other side. Alfred Nathaniel Beadle was born April 14, 1837, in the town of Orwell, his parents being Nathaniel and Anna Wellman Beadle. His father died the year he was born, and his mother in his early childhood. When a small boy he went to live with his uncle and guardian, John Beadle, where his early days were spent amid strenuous farm work. He attended the public schools of the town and also Pulaski, Mexico and Belleville Academy’s, and was later a most successful teacher, being offered the principalship of Tulley Seminary at one time, but refusing it. Soon after the breaking out of the Civil War he enlisted in Company E, 147th Regiment, New York Volunteers, acting as Commissary Sergeant, Quartermaster Sergeant and Quartermaster. In 1865 he came to Pulaski and with H. H. Lyman, M. L. Hollis and W. H. Bentley formed a partnership for dealing in groceries and hardware, which lasted two years, and was succeeded by the firm of Lyman and Beadle for the hardware and M. L. Hollis for the groceries. Some years later when Mr. Lyman was elected sheriff, Mr. Beadle purchased his interest and continued the business until the great fire of 1881 in which he was a heavy loser. In January, 1882, he appointed deputy sheriff and jailer under E. L. Huntington, of Mexico. Three years later he was elected sheriff, moving to Oswego. Mr. Beadle was one of the organizers of J. B. Butler Post, G.A.R., and its first commander. He became a Mason in 1885, joining the blue lodge in Pulaski and later the chapter in Mexico and the commandery and consisteny [sic] in Oswego. In 1865 he married Miss Frances Mary Bentley, of this village, who died October 19th, 1895. To them were born three daughters and three sons, the sons dying in early childhood. The three daughters survive, also four grandchildren by whom he will be deeply mourned. He was a member of the Congregational Society of this village, a large hearted and liberal giver to its support and a regular attendant at its services when in town. Although not a member of the church he had an ardent love for his Saviour and followed Him in his love for his fellow men. He greatly disliked anything that took an advantage of a weaker one and was well named Nathaniel, for he was without guile. He will long be remembered in this community for his many deeds of kindness to those in need. “Pure religion and undefined before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27. -A Friend.
