    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 29, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland, December 26th - Last Wednesday about nine o'clock p.m., John Meacham suffered a severe paralytic stroke from which he died last Saturday.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, December 29, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In this town, December 24, 1892, of paralysis, John Meacham, aged 84 years.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 5, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland - In last week's Democrat was the notice of the death of Deacon John Meacham. His early boyhood was passed in Pulaski. When he was seven years of age he was adopted by Deacon Wood, who about the same time adopted John's cousin, Maria Brewster, of the Brewster settlement, Ellisburg. The two cousins were married when Mr. M. was about twenty-two or three. To them were born five children, Josephine L., who always lived at the home; Mrs. Charles Eastman, of Woodville, Jefferson county; Milton and Walter, who live in the West, and John, who is still at home. Deacon Wood died some thirty odd years ago, and left the farm of some three hundred acres, to his foster children, John and Maria. The farm Mr. M. has lived on all but seven years of his life, and to which he was much attached. It can be very truly said of him that he was emphatically a good man. He was a very affectionate husband and father, and a good neighbor. He was a member of the Congregational church in Pulaski, and one of its strongest pillars. His funeral was attended from his late residence on Tuesday, on what would have been his 84th birthday. The services were conducted by his pastor, Rev. Emmons, of Pulaski. Interment in Pulaski cemetery.
