    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, November 2, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In this village, October 28th, 1882, Frederick W. Meacham, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. D. B. Meacham, aged 25 years. For a young man, few had a wider circle of friends than the deceased. Very few people are there in this section of the county but who knew and respected Fred Meacham, as he was familiarly known. His parents, sister and brothers are deeply afflicted by this bereavement and have universal sympathy.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, November 9, 1882 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - October 28th, 1882, Fred W. Meacham, aged 25 years, youngest son of Mr. D. B. Meacham of this village. The deceased had recently entered upon a business career in partnership with his father and elder brother, a well-known and long established firm in this village. He had developed a new and comparatively independent branch of business with a success already attending his efforts which revealed abilities and powers as a business man that both surprised and gratified his friends. Commonly reticent and quiet in his demeanor, when brought into contact with others in business, he developed not only great energy and force of character, but also a social geniality, and urbanity of disposition and manner that won warm friends and gave most flattering promise of future success. Beside this, in all business transactions there was a truthfulness, frankness, cheerfulness, and an earnest desire not only to do justly and fairly, but kindly by others, striving to meet their wants, however capricious, that made his patrons ardent friends, as has been abundantly manifested in their expressions of appreciation and sorrow since his death. Nearly a year since he had an attack of pneumonia, which was really the beginning of the disease which has resulted so fatally. With great fu-mness and resolution he bore up under the disease, speaking seldom of his sufferings, anxious especially not to alarm his family friends, he yielding only when it was impossible to resist longer, and after that passed rapidly to the grave. Cheerful and hopeful to the last, he seemed to feel he must save his friends the sorrow of anticipating his death. In his last moments he gave expression to feelings of resignation, hope and peace, which are now a source of unspeakable comfort to the family friends, who feel that they can commit his future with confidence to the Father of his spirit.
