      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, October 7, 1869 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died, in this village, September 29, Mr. Amos Fellows, aged 81 years. Mr. Fellows was born in Tolland, Tolland County, Connecticut January 22d, 1789. In childhood he received the ordinance of baptism in the _of the Congregational church. He was reared in those social and religious influences that have so uniformly molded the character of those who have been subjects of them to habits of sobriety and industry as to give the state of his birth and early training the appellation of the land of steady habits. In 1814, at the age of 25, he first visited this section, on a tour of inspection. April 28, 1818, he was married to Miss Lavina Holcomb, at Suffield, Connecticut. In 1820. He returned here with his wife, designed to make his future home. He then made purchase of the very farm upon which he has spent his remaining days, rearing a family and circumstances of rare domestic fidelity, seeing the children of his affection grow up in their fair promise, like olive branches surrounding his table, profoundly respected for his strict honesty and fidelity is a man and the citizen, for his kindness and helpfulness is a neighbor, he has gone down to his grave in peace, as a shock of corn fully ripe for the harvest. His recognition and consciousness were remarkably clear to the last. He knew of his approaching end, and repeatedly expressed his feelings of trust in God as his Father and the Savior as his Redeemer. Thus, our passing away our noble fathers, whose strong right hands cleaved the way through these ancient forests for the _ance of a Christian civilization, whose brave hearts and patient spirits, daunted by _difficulties, have prepared for us. The higher privileges we enjoy and built for us. The shelter of civil prosperity and peace that make our land the world's most glorious Temple of Freedom and Right. It is fitting for us, so endowed, to honor and cherish their memories.
