    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 24, 1890 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In this village, April 17th, 1890, of consumption, Adelbert A. Richards, aged 30 years, 6 months, 15 days. Deceased was born in South Richland, in this town, and when seven years of age he moved with his parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. S. Richards, to Pulaski. He served as carrier for the village paper when thirteen years of age, and the following year he entered the office of the Pulaski Democrat, where he remained a faithful, efficient workman until he was twenty-two years old. For two years he was employed as compositor and proof-reader on the Utica Herald. He was a short time in the office of the Utica Observer, and subsequently accepted cases on the Syracuse Standard, where he remained for about six years. In October 23, 1885, he was married to Miss F. J. Stewart, of this village, who with a little son, Willie, only a little over three years of age, survives a kind, good, loving husband and father. Deceased passed the winter in Arizona and returned home April 12th, quite conscious of his speedy death, but fully resigned and very hopeful of a bright resurrection beyond. The funeral was held last Saturday at his father's residence, Rev. D. D. Owen officiating. Delegations from the Syracuse Typographical Union, No. 55, and from the Knights of Honor, fraternity and insurance organizations of Syracuse were in attendance at the last sad services, in token of their high esteem for their departed brother. They brought with them a magnificent wreath of flowers, the last thing they could do for their comrade.
