      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, June 18, 1903 Sandy Creek News - Death of Phineas Stewart - Phineas Stewart, whose death was briefly mentioned last week, was born in Sandy Creek 71 years and five months ago, where he lived for many years, but now had been a resident of Richland for some time. He has been one of the most industrious and progressive farmers in this part of the county, His energy knew no bounds and his care of the interests which tend to prosperity was ever manifest. He owned one of the most delightful farm homes in this section, and it was refreshing to pass by it, for all things were in perfect order. He possessed characteristics which brought many friends. He was overflowing with sympathy for those who were in need and many will remember his charity and kindly help. He followed the most active engagements of a farmer's life until failing health made it necessary for him to relinquish his grip on the plow and lay down other implements of toil, this he did with great reluctance. During the past few years the companion of his home has been a suffering invalid and to her he has been devoted and tender, giving great consideration and care,and it seemed that her call had come many times, but how she is left and her strong tower to lean upon has been taken. The non, Hermon, his wife and three children, reside at the home to be a comfort to the lonely widow. The funeral was held Friday, and though the rain came down in torrents, the gathering of friends, was so large that one could see a testimony more emphatic than words can speak, of the love and esteem, which many held for Mr. Stewart. The scripture lesson and discourse were given by Rev. J.B. Felt, and his remarks were very impressive, as they came from a feeling that he had lost a personal friend. He spoke of the assurance he had from interviews that Mr. Stewart had given careful attention to the great and all important thing in life, as touching the preparation for hereafter. He spoke of his thought for those who need help and the sympathies possessed. Rev. S.O. Barnes offered an earnest prayer and B. G. Seamans, by request of Mr. Stewart, rendered "Lead Kindly Light," accompanied by Mrs Seamans. Burial was at Sandy Creek where Mr.Stewart has a beautiful family lot and a fine monument which he was pleased to have set to suit his own fancy. His last outing was about three weeks ago when he was around in the interests of the coming Stewart reunion, which will occur Saturday. He was the president, and while it will be a sad reunion, the families will not disregard his desire, which was that they carry out the plans for the day as was announced. Buried in Woodlawn Cemetery, Sandy Creek NY
