    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 27, 1871 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Obituary - Chester Dodge was born in Wardsboro, Vermont, April 13, 1788. In early childhood he went with his parents to Ellington, Connecticut, where they resided till 1803, when he removed with them into the Black River country, and settled in the town of Rodman, Jefferson County, New York. There he spent his early manhood with his parents, brothers and sisters, all of whom, save his youngest sister, survived. His twin brother, with whom he was so closely identified in feature and spirit, that it was difficult to distinguish them, shared with him and all the activities and privations attending the settlement of a new country, and his sudden death some twenty years ago, cast a gloom over his remaining years. In April, 1813, he married Martha Cone, of Turin, Lewis County, New York, who still survives him; and eight years since the festivities of a "Golden Wedding" was theirs. In the spring of 1825, he came with his family and aged parents into Oswego County, and located in the northern part of the town of Richland, and with the exception of two years residence in LeRay, Jefferson County, has been an inhabitant of this town; reciting some fifteen years in the central part, and later in the southern part, some ten years, but the last seven years of his life was spent at his late residence, where he bore all the infirmities of declining age with Christian patience, cheerfulness, fortitude and resignation. He was the father of nine children, all of whom profess faith in Him who is the resurrection and the life. A son and daughter preceded him to the spirit world, the youngest at the age of twenty-seven years. In youth the deceased found the consolation that the religion of Jesus of affords, and was ever after habitual and constant in his family devotions, delighting much in the study of the Scriptures, and always recommending it to those of his household, enjoying upon them the council which the book of Proverbs afford. He first united with the Congregational Church of Rodman, under the pastorate of Rev. David Spear, and ever afterward strove to be faithful to his church covenant. And by earnest perseverance in the ways of the truth, he has been enabled to escape those snares that await and beguile the unstable, and to attain to a good old age, and to depart in peace, leaving a kind remembrance in the heart of all who knew him. Memorial tribute by the children.
