    • 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."

  • Notes 
    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, August 30, 1928 Sandy Creek News - Joel Stewart was born near Petersburgh, Rensselear County, New York, in February 1804. His parents were Eathel and Esther Thurber Stewart, of English descent. It has been said that Eathel Stewart helped to build the Baptist church at Petersburgh and that his wife, Esther, was a Methodist. When Joel Stewart was eight years of age his parents came to Oswego County, settling in town of Richland. The farm at Petersburgh was sold to pay a debt his father made having signed a note with another man. The trip to Oswego County was made by ox team following the marked trees. At that time they had to go either to Rome or Oswego to have their corn ground. Eathol and Esther Stewart were the parents of Joel, Draper, Benjamin, Ira, Phineas, Harriet, Sarah, Hannah and Melissa. He (Eathel) died at the age of 81 years. At the age of twenty-seven, Joel Stewart married Betsey White from Vermont. They began housekeeping in the Whitesboro district. After some time they gave this up to his parents and purchased a 200-acre farm on the Ridge Road then known as the Seneca Getty farm (later the James Snyder farm and now owned by Ralph Sutton), where he lived nine years. He next purchased the Deacon Meacham farm. When his health began to fail, he went to live with his daughter, Ellen, in Pulaski where he died at the age of 90 on March 3, 1894. His children were Dexter W., James Gilbert, Wilbur, Sally, Harriet Jane, Milton, Ellen, Milton Delos and Orin."

Having been a user of the weed since he was a mere lad, it isn't an easy task, of course, but Mr. Stewart doesn't complain. He advises all, especially the young men, to do likewise. They will be happier, have more friends, more money and prove more pleasant and agreeable in society.

      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, February 6, 1895 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - An Important Decision - Surrogate David has decided the contest over the codicil to the last will and testament of the late Joel Stewart, of this village, in favor of the contestants. The litigation in this proceeding has been pending for several months, and a large volume of evidence was taken. Mr. Stewart died in this village on the 2d of March, 1894, aged 90 years, having accumulated quite a large property. By his will, which was made in 1884, he gave to his three sons the farms where they resided in the eastern part of Richland, and the residue of his property to his wife and daughter, Ellen. By a codicil, which was made a few months prior to his decease, he gave the use of the farms only to his sons. The surrogate, by his decision, sets _ the codicil and _ to a limit _ probate, on the ground of _ _ and want on mental capacity. Thus the contestants become owners of the property as provided in the original will. F. E. Jones and N. B. Smith, Esq., were counsel for contestants, and B. E. Parkhurst and S. C. Huntington for the respondents.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, March 7, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In this village, March 2, 1894, Joel Stewart, aged 90 years. Mr. Stewart was born in Peterburgh, Rensselaer county, New York, and removed to this county with his parents when but a small boy. In 1830 he was married to Miss Betsey J. White and went to keeping house in a neighborhood then called Whitesboro, in the town of Sandy Creek. By careful industry he and his companion soon owned a comfortable house, but finding that his aged parents were not provided for he gave his home to them, starting again with new courage to gain a home for himself and family. Buying the two hundred acre farm on the Ridge road, he succeeded in paying for it and there lived for a number of years. From there he moved to what is known as the Meacham farm near this village, where he lived about nine years. Somewhat failing in health he moved to this village where he has since resided with this wife and only daughter, Miss Nila Stewart. He was of a disposition to never turn back from a work once commenced and it was this characteristic that helped much in making his life successful. From a youth he was a regular attendant at the M. E. church and an earnest worker for the cause of temperance. The funeral services were held at his late residence on North street on Monday. Revs. Bramley and Fletcher officiating. Interment in the Pulaski cemetery.
