    • Capt. Albert Alonzo Fellows - May 1842 - January 1, 1866. Plot B-356. Son of Isaac and Cynthia Young Fellows.
      Newspaper Obituary - Monday, January 8, 1866 The Journal - Syracuse, New York - Capt. Albert A. Fellows, son of Isaac Fellows, Esq., of Pulaski, was killed in a horrible manner, last Monday night. He attempted to get upon the train going north at Sand Bank. In the darkness, he was thrown under the tracks of a car, without the knowledge of those who were on the train. People who were standing at the station thought that Capt. Fellows was thrown under the cars, and some of them followed the train some distance, finding the cap he was wearing at the time. Following the track further, the mangled trunk of the unfortunate man was found about two and a half miles from the station at Sand Bank, whither it has been carried, probably by the tracks of the car. The body was dismembered and disemboweled, and the head was fearfully mangled. The ground over which the body had been carried was marked by shreds of clothing and pieces of the body. Capt. Fellows was a young man, who entered the volunteer service early in the war in one of the Oswego county regiments, and served with much credit in the Gulf Department. His untimely death will be sincerely lamented by a large circle of friends.
      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, January 11, 1866 Mexico Independent - Mexico, New York - Death of Capt. Fellows - In our last issue we briefly alluded to the death of Capt. Fellows. The following particulars we take from the Pulaski Democrat: “We are compelled to record, this week, the most melancholy and shocking event that ever, to our knowledge, occurred in this section - the sudden and fearful death of Capt. Albert A. Fellows, late of the 110th regiment, in the 24th year of his age. On the morning of New Year's day, in company with several friends and old companions in arms, from Oswego, he went to pay a visit to Quartermaster Comstock, at Sand Bank. After passing the day there, the party went to the station to take the train back, which passes there about 7 o'clock. All had got on board except Capt. Fellows, who remained talking until the train was fairly in motion, when he attempted to jump upon one of the last cars. It appears that his left foot must have slipped upon the step, passed through and become entangles. He lost his hold of the irons, fell backward, and was thus dragged about two and a half miles, before the remains of his body became detached from the car. Quartermaster Comstock and others at Sand Bank saw enough of his mishap in getting aboard to excite their fears that all was not well, and they followed along the track until they found his hat, a boot and stocking, and discovered other evidences of the awful catastrophe. They at once telegraphed to Mr. H. H. Mellen at Richland Station, who, when the train arrived without Capt. Fellows, put a box on a hand car and went up the road until he found what remained of the body, and met the Sand Bank party picking up the fragments. The details are too sickening to dwell upon, and our readers must be content to know that he was literally torn in pieces - they can imagine the rest. His remains were brought to this village, and thence taken home, where the scene was such as the beholders hope never to see again. Capt. Fellows was beloved by all who knew him, while our own relations with him were of the most pleasant and friendly character. He had grown up from a boy under our eyes; he had been our pupil at the Academy, and we believe that a mutual regard existed, of that peculiar kind of semi-parental and filial nature which such relations often beget. He was open, frank, generous, manly and noble, and gave promise of usefulness in life, had he been spared. His funeral was largely attended at the M. E. Church, on Wednesday, Rev. Mr. Douglas officiating.”
