    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, February 2, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mr. and Mrs. Joel Stewart have invited a few of their friends to assemble at the residence, on North Street, on Thursday evening of this week. The occasion is, indeed, a rare one in the life of any married couple. It is not only the sixty-third anniversary of their marriage but it is the eighty-ninth birthday anniversary of Mr. Stewart. We hope for continued years of life and health on the part of this aged couple.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, February 9, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - 63d Wedding Anniversary - A notable event occurred on North Street on Thursday evening of last week, February 2. It was at the residence of Joel Stewart and was the sixty-third anniversary of their marriage. A large number of invited guests were present and together the host, hostess and daughter, Miss Stewart, and those assembled made the occasion one of much interest and enjoyment. The event, rare as it was of itself, was notable also as being the 89th birthday of Mr. Stewart. He was born February 2, 1804, in Petersburg, Rensselaer County, in this state. For twenty years he has resided in Pulaski, previous to which time he had been extensively and successfully engaged in agriculture, owning a number of farms in this vicinity. Mrs. Stewart is over 82 years of age, and both are in fair health considering their advanced age. Quite a number of beautiful gifts were displayed. Just before the anniversary supper was served the venerable Rev. Lawson Muzzy, at the request of host and hostess, made a pleasant and appropriate little speech. He also greatly surprised Rev. A. Bramley by presenting him on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart, with an elegant gold headed cane. That gentleman appropriately responded by saying that he had never before been caned and that it seemed strange that he should now be called upon to submit to that experience from a man 89 years of age. Mr. Stewart was also presented with a gold headed cane, the gift of James Frowd and wife. Joel Stewart and wife have three sons and one daughter now living. There are twelve grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren. We wish this couple other wedding anniversaries and hope that their last days shall be "An old age serene and bright."

      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, May 18, 1898 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - The Betsey Stewart Estate - At Surrogate Mead's court last week, an interesting will contest involving an estate valued at $18,000 came up. Mrs. Betsey Stewart, a prominent resident of Pulaski, died on January 12th, leaving $3,000 in real and $15,000 in personal property and a will bequeathing the entire estate excepting $500 to her daughter, Ellen Stewart. The $500 according to the will was to be paid to Charles D. Clark for faithful services rendered to Mrs. Stewart. This provision the will stated was at the request of Mrs. Stewart's husband, Joel Stewart. Ellen Stewart was named executrix of the estate. But Mrs. Stewart's son's, Wilbur, Gilbert and Dexter W., and her granddaughter, Harriet Hill, refused to recognize the will and have filed objections through John W. Shea, their attorney, setting forth that at the time of its alleged execution the deceased was incompetent to make such an instrument. Wilbur Stewart claiming that the will was not that of his mother and that she died intestate, has applied for an appointment as executor of the estate. When the proceedings were called, H. Louis Wallace was made a special guardian over the incidents and the objections were placed on file. The adjournment then was taken to June 9 at 2 o'clock. The matter of the estate of Joel Stewart which has some bearing on the contest was also adjourned to June 9.
