      Newspaper Obituary - December 14, 1927 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - DeForest Pond Dies After Several Weeks Illness ┬ČThe news of the death of DeForest Pond, at his South Jefferson street residence, came as a distinct shock to the many friends of the family shortly after noon last Saturday, as few knew that Mr. Pond was at home and ill. For some twenty or more years, Mr. Pond has been foreman of the paint crew of the R. W. & O. Division of the N. Y. C. R. R., and his work has taken him away from home a great deal. His friends have seen him usually every weekend only. He had been confined to his home for some five weeks with a heart trouble that in the end proved fatal. Mr. Pond was born in Fernwood, April 24, 1872. His home has been in Pulaski several years and he had many acquaintances and friends here. He is a member of Pulaski Lodge 649, I. O. 0_ F., and of the N. Y. C. Veteran's Association. He is survived by a widow and two young sons, George and Robert, both high school boys, and a sister, Mrs. M. G. Sampson of Oswego. The funeral was conducted from the family home Monday afternoon at two o'clock by the Rev. Charles Bollinger, pastor of the Methodist church with burial in Willis cemetery.
