      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, September 7, 1893 The Oswego Daily Palladium - Oswego, New York - Buried With Masonic Honors - O. E. Dwight, of Port Ontario, was buried with Masonic honors on Sunday afternoon. He was ninety-two years of age and the oldest Mason in this section of the State. He settled at Port Ontario when that village was being boomed as a city, bought property when property was at its highest and has lived there ever since. He was mail carrier between that place and Pulaski for many years, as long as his health and strength permitted.
      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, September 14, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Masonic Resolutions -Bro. Orren E. Dwight commenced his Masonic journey of life in Pulaski Lodge, No. 415, on the 1st day of October A. D. 1858, and to the close of his eventful life his loyalty to the principles of our Order secured him the confidence and the esteem of his associates. He died on the 1st day of the present month, carrying with him the accumulated experience of more than four score years and ten. Br. Dwight's interest in the welfare of the Craft was most intense. This was evidenced during the erection of the beautiful Masonic Temple. Although physically infirm, he manifested in common with his brethren, the spirit of sacrifice and faith which were builded into the structure. Though never enabled to enter its portals he caught the inspiration of the builders and retained it to the completion of the work. Within this jurisdiction he was a pioneer of our Order, a landmark new removed. Resolved, That we tender our sympathy to the bereaved ones, commending them to the loving care of the Grand Master on high. Resolved, That the furniture and jewels of the Lodge be draped in mourning for the period of thirty days. Resolved, That these resolutions be spread upon the minutes of the Lodge, a copy presented to the family of our deceased brother and published in the Pulaski Democrat.
