      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, May 27, 1880 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died in this village, May 11th, 1880, Sherman Clark, aged 84 years. The deceased was born October 28th, 1795, at Columbia, Windham County, Connecticut. When about 12 years of age he removed with his parents to Tolland, Connecticut, where he lived until he was about 20 years old. He then went to Guilford, in this state, where he was married, September 18th, 1817, at the age of 22, to Miss Nancy Dickerman, a daughter of John Dickerman of Bockdale, Chenango County. In 183_, he made a public profession of religion with his wife, uniting with the Congregational Church of Guilford; seven children, which then constituted his family, receiving at the same time the ordinance of baptism, for he was early taught in the land of his nativity, "good old Connecticut," to believe that the promise is to parents and their children - Acts 2:39 - and that is the real Apostolic time, the ordinance of baptism was administered to parents with their household - Acts 16:15 - passages of the New Testament to which he was accustomed frequently to refer, and which he specially taught his own120 children. He removed with his family to the town of Mexico in 1842, and subsequently came to this place, December, 1845, where he has since resided, with the exception of three years of residence in the city of Oswego. December 31st, 1873, his wife, deceased, who had been an invalid for many years, but the most patients sufferer, greatly illustrating the power and serenity of Christian faith. This loss brought a constant sense of loneliness not only, but drew his thoughts away from earthly things to more frequent meditation on the heavenly life. He began to feel more and more that only happened remained, and to look more intently forward to its coming scenes, and to feel more fully that he was but a Pilgrim and a sojourner here. His peculiar mental and moral characteristics are well known to the community in which he is so long resided. He possessed great earnestness of character, a positiveness of conviction that made him a thorough believer in God and divine truth, firm conscientiousness and inflexible tenacity for what he believed to be right, figure, and steadfastness of purpose with no compromise for the wrong. He also possessed great strength of feeling, devoted to his family and church, affectionate and all the relations of life, and sincerely desiring the good of all, often saying, "I wish evil to no one." He generated the age of eighty four, almost eighty five, with the manifestation of a vig_ and clearness of intellect, and a strength of vitality rarely seen at any period of life. Slowly and firmly, with no shrinking fear, with no doubting heart, he stepped down into the death-valley, serenely trusting and cheerfully conscious of the attending presence of his Redeemer. Hope was changed to knowledge - "I know" was his constant affirmation; "Almost home" was his joyful response to friends questioning him of his condition. Four weeks before his death, he said to his pastor, when confident expectations were entertained of his recovery, "I have been praying all winter to be delivered from the fear of death, and the Lord has answered my prayer and now I long to go." This longing to depart attended him all the remainder of his sickness, and at night he often expressed the wish, although not in during any special suffering, but the morning might find him in heaven. The radiance of his cheerful faith dissipated the dark shadows of death, and made it seem a shrinking portal. Truly, "Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord."
