      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 12, 1883 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - He Rests from His Labors - Died, at his residence in this village, April 6th, 1883, of consumption, William E. Weed, aged 32 years. Over thirteen years since, when the present publisher of the Democrat assumed it's proprietorship, the deceased was on its composing force. Not many months afterward he was promoted to the foremanship of the mechanical department and up to the day of his death he held that position, taking at all times a deep interest in the affairs of the office. Several years since during a protracted absence of the proprietor, he had full charge of the business and well and faithfully were his arduous duties performed. For over three months past it has been to us apparent that he was a victim of consumption. Although much of the time really unable to superintend with the same efficiency as in former years, still, with a wonderfully persistent determination to attend to his accustomed tasks, he continued to visit the office even after it became necessary to carry him to and fro. In this way he labored as well as his failing strength would allow, until Saturday, March 31st. He repeatedly stated that he was more at home in the office than anywhere else, which was quite true. He deeply loved his wife and children, two sprightly sons, and in many ways sacrificed for them and for an aged grandmother, for years a member of his household. For twelve years past he had been a member of the Congregational church and much of the time an officer in its Sunday school. His untimely death is sad, sad indeed. His bereaved family, his associates on the newspaper, his friends, relatives and acquaintances will all unite in holding him in tender recollection. There was a large attendance at the funeral, which was held on Sunday afternoon, from the Congregational church, Rev. J. Douglas preaching. Noticeable upon the casket were several very beautiful floral designs, one which came from Mexico, the gift of Mrs. Ella R. Baker.
