      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, June 10, 1896 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Memorial - Another old landmark and honored resident has passed away. The subject of this sketch, Justus B. Fox, was born in the town of Richland, April 15, 1822. He was the seventh child of a family of ten children of the late Justus and Rebecca Bull Fox who lived near what is known as the Fox bridge. They were among the first settlers in this town and spent their lives on the farm they cleared. In 1846 he united in marriage with Sarah Field of this town. Their union was blessed with six children, Janette, Ephriam J., Seymour D., Milley, Seymour J. and Helen, three of whom are now living, Ephriam J. and Seymour J. of this town and Mrs. H. Tuttle, of Lacona. In the fall of 1849 he purchased a farm about two miles south of Pulaski near the Fox school house where he lived at the time of his death. For several seasons, some thirty years ago he was very successful in the occupation of boating and since that time has been a farmer and brick layer. In the winter of 1868 he buried his wife. In November following, he married Mrs. Laura Hurd Filmore, of Ellisburg, who is left to mourn his loss. He was a man who enjoyed good health and although advanced in years was well until two years ago when he was stricken with la grippe from which he never fully recovered, although able to attend to his business until this spring when he was again prostrated which resulted in his death. A number of years ago he joined the Masonic order at Pulaski and their respect to him showed his standing in the lodge as a few days before his death he was visited by friends. The 21st he quietly and peacefully passed away. The funeral was held on the 24th at his late residence and was the largest funeral ever attended in this town. There were one hundred twenty masons present to do honor to their fallen comrade and one hundred forty-seven carriages followed him to the grave where he was laid to rest, in the Lehigh cemetery. The bearers were Dr. F. S. Low, D. A. King, Lafayette Austin, Thomas Stone, Thomas Ingersoll and Seneca Moore. A short and very impressive discourse was delivered by the Rev. A. D. Webster after which the masons took charge.
