      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 10, 1940 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Pulaski's Oldest Resident Dies - Simeon R. Trumbull, 91 - Simeon R. Trumbull, 91, oldest Pulaski resident, died at his home on North street late Tuesday night. Mr. Trumbull had been in failing health for several months, but confined to his home only a few weeks. He was born August 30, 1848, in the Lehigh district, two miles east of the village, son of Horace I. and Nancy Bennett Trumbull. His father came to this section more than 100 years ago from Jay, Essex County, and settled in the vicinity where Mr. Trumbull was born. His maternal grandfather was Reuben Bennett who came to Oswego County in 1803 from Vermont and was one of the pioneer settlers in this section. When a boy he attended the Lehigh district school and later for his academic training, the old Pulaski Academy, where he was trained for teaching, graduating from that institution in 1863. He taught school in various localities in the towns of Sandy Creek and Richland and for a time when a young man was a cheese maker operating a factory in the Lehigh district. February 2, 1883 he entered the employ of the Railway Postal Service as a railway mail clerk and continued in this work, with the exception of a few months, for 37 years before retiring in 1920. During the few months in which he was not employed in the postal service he conducted a clothing business here. On March 17, 1880, he married Miss Sarah Jane Jones. Mr. Trumbull was of a very friendly and congenial nature and endeared himself to the many with whom he came in contact. He was always greatly interested in all the church, fraternal and civic activities of the community and especially in the welfare of the young couple. This was so definitely demonstrated in his loyalty and faithfulness to the church and fraternity of which he was a member. As a member and attendant of the Pulaski Methodist church for nearly 80 years, he served in many official capacities, for some time on the board of trustees, as Sunday school teacher and superintendent of the Sunday school. He served on the village Board of Education from 1896 to 1917. Mr. Trumbull was well known in Masonic circles, becoming a member of Pulaski Lodge No. 415, F. & A.M. in 1880, 60 years ago. He was presented with the 50-year medal of the order in 1930 and had he lived until May 5, 1940, would have been presented with the 60-year palm. He served as master of the lodge 1896-97. In 1897 he became a member of Pulaski Chapter No. 179, R.A.M. and was high priest of the chapter 1900-01; joined Pulaski Chapter No. 159, O.E.S. in 1898 and was the second patron of that order. His remarkable ability to memorize and present much of the work of these fraternal orders together with his faithfulness in attendance at the meetings made him an outstanding member. His legion of friends will mourn the loss of the friendly and warm greeting of "Sim" as he was affectionately known by all. Besides his wife, he is survived by one son, Dr. Lawrence R. Trumbull of Auburn; a granddaughter, Virginia Florence Trumbull, senior in Boston University. Funeral services were held at the Methodist church Saturday afternoon at 2 o'clock with Masonic organizations attending in a body. There was a profusion of floral tributes. Following the services conducted by the Rev. W. A. Gardner, pastor of the church, assisted by the Rev. Charles T. Holcombe of Watertown, former pastor, the Masonic services were conducted by Merritt A. Switzer, master of Pulaski lodge. The bearers were all Masons and included Mayor Harrison R. Franklin, Hugh F. Whitney, Fred Clark, Harry MacMorran, Frank Brundage and W. H. Bonner. Burial was in Riverside cemetery, Pulaski. Those attending the funeral besides his son and wife, Dr. and Mrs. Lawrence R. Trumbull of Auburn, were his niece, Miss Mary Trumbull of Plattsburg; Mr. and Mrs. Frank Austin of Fulton and Mrs. Jesse Lawton of Mexico.
