  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, March 25, 1847 Richland Courier - Pulaski, New York - Died - At his residence in Sandy Creek, on Saturday afternoon last, of a short but severe illness, Thomas S. Meacham, Esq., the proprietor of Agricultural Hall, in the 54th year of his age. Mr. Meacham was one of the first settlers of this county, was a farmer by profession, and has probably done more than any other man in the county for the promotion of the science of agriculture. His whole mind has always been absorbed in his occupation, and the dairying interest of the county owes its first impetus to him. His Mammoth Cheese, presented to President Van Buren, will not soon be forgotten, and, although his body has passed from the earth, we hope that is many traits of kindness, benevolence, perseverance and industry will not soon pass from the minds of his contemporaries.
