    • Rites Today For Archie Edwards

      Funeral services for Archie Edwards, 78, retired line foreman of the Niagara Mohawk unit and a resident of Pulaski most of his life, who died Monday afternoon in the Brooks hospital in Dunkirk, will be held from the Foster funeral home in Park st. at 2 p.m. today (Thursday).

      The Rev. Cyrus Gonigam, pastor of the Congregational church, will officiate and interment will be made in Pulaski cemetery.

      Although he had been in poor health for several years, he had been a patient at the hospital only a few days.

      Mr. Edwards was born in Pittston, Pa., Oct. 29, 1873, a son of David and Mary Ferber Edwards. He received his education in the Pulaski schools and
      had lived here all his life until about five years ago when he went to Fredonia to make his home with his only daughter, Mrs. Robert (Irene) Woods.

      He was a refinisher by trade and started out as a young man working for A.K. Box and later was employed by the Tollner company until its dissolution. In 1918 he entered the employ of the Niagara Lockport & Ontario Power company as line man, retiring as foreman in 1938. After his retirement he reverted to his original occupation and worked at refinishing of furniture at his home in Factory st. as long as his health would permit.

      He was married to Miss Etta Wilcox in 1893, who's death occurred on Dec. 9, 1944.

      He was a past master of Pulaski Masonic Lodge No. 415, F. & A.M. and a past member of the Royal Arch Masons in which he was active when he resided in Pulaski. He attended the Baptist church.

      Surviving besides his daughter, Mrs. Woods, are a grandson, Maj. Robert W. Woods, of the army, Middletown; a granddaughter, Mrs. Lester (Mary Lou) Dewey, Pulaski; five great grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
