    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 19, 1898 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - In Memoriam - The death of Mr. Joseph W. Wood occurred at the home of his daughter, Mrs. C. V. Harbottle, 142 Garfield avenue, Syracuse, New York early Thursday morning, January 13, 1898. Mr. Wood was the son of William and Anna Leflingwell Wood and born in the town of Ellisburg, New York, September 10, 1818, for more than 79 years ago. In his earlier years of manhood, he, with his two brothers and their father, were extensive and successful farmers for that period. On January 17, 1843, he was married to Maudane L. Jenkins and therefore only lacked a few days of celebrating the 55th anniversary of their wedded life. He went to California by the Isthmus of Panama in 1849, but the rainy season coming on and the climate not agreeing with him, he returned after a few months sojourn in the Golden State. In 1851 with his family he moved to the farm on North street just at the edge of this village. Subsequently they lived for a few years on Lake street, but since 1859 occupied his residence on Salina street. For many years he pursued the business of buying butter, cheese and eggs, being engaged thus long before the factory system came into existence. He traveled extensively through Oswego and southern Jefferson counties and it is doubtful if there was a man better known among the farmers in that territory during that time that Joseph Wood. He was noted for his fair and honest dealings with all. He truly exemplified his Christian character in his daily business life. At the age of 21 years he united with the Baptist church in Woodville and subsequently with the Baptist church of this village, of which he liberally supported and in which he actively served as a deacon for over forty years. He has been a strong Republican since that party came into existence and while he was not an aspirant for office, lie was honored by his townsmen several times and served them as supervisor, assessor and overseer of the poor. Two sons and a daughter were born to him, Mr. Gilbert E. Wood now of Oil City, Pennsylvania, Walter C. Wood of East Aurora, New York and Mrs. Mary Harbottle of Syracuse, who with his wife, also an adopted daughter, Mrs. A. M. Bin= of Aurora, Missouri, mourn the death of a kind and affectionate husband and father. Three years ago on account of failing health Mr. and Mrs. Wood went to Syracuse to reside with their daughter and during the past ten months Mr. Wood has been an almost constant sufferer. But even when in great pain he was supported by a strong Christian faith and uttered no murmur of complaint, patiently awaiting his summons to come up higher, and he at last passed peacefully to his final rest the funeral services were held from Mrs. Harbottle's residence Friday afternoon, Rev. Amos Naylor officiating, his theme being the words of Paul, "I have fought a good fight, etc." The remains were taken to Woodville, Saturday morning for interment. W.C. W.
