    • Newspaper Article - Thursday, February 2, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mr. and Mrs. Joel Stewart have invited a few of their friends to assemble at the residence, on North Street, on Thursday evening of this week. The occasion is, indeed, a rare one in the life of any married couple. It is not only the sixty-third anniversary of their marriage but it is the eighty-ninth birthday anniversary of Mr. Stewart. We hope for continued years of life and health on the part of this aged couple.

      Newspaper Article - Thursday, February 9, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - 63d Wedding Anniversary - A notable event occurred on North Street on Thursday evening of last week, February 2. It was at the residence of Joel Stewart and was the sixty-third anniversary of their marriage. A large number of invited guests were present and together the host, hostess and daughter, Miss Stewart, and those assembled made the occasion one of much interest and enjoyment. The event, rare as it was of itself, was notable also as being the 89th birthday of Mr. Stewart. He was born February 2, 1804, in Petersburg, Rensselaer County, in this state. For twenty years he has resided in Pulaski, previous to which time he had been extensively and successfully engaged in agriculture, owning a number of farms in this vicinity. Mrs. Stewart is over 82 years of age, and both are in fair health considering their advanced age. Quite a number of beautiful gifts were displayed. Just before the anniversary supper was served the venerable Rev. Lawson Muzzy, at the request of host and hostess, made a pleasant and appropriate little speech. He also greatly surprised Rev. A. Bramley by presenting him on behalf of Mr. and Mrs. Stewart, with an elegant gold headed cane. That gentleman appropriately responded by saying that he had never before been caned and that it seemed strange that he should now be called upon to submit to that experience from a man 89 years of age. Mr. Stewart was also presented with a gold headed cane, the gift of James Frowd and wife. Joel Stewart and wife have three sons and one daughter now living. There are twelve grandchildren and nineteen great-grandchildren. We wish this couple other wedding anniversaries and hope that their last days shall be "An old age serene and bright."

  • Notes 
    • 1895 Landmarks of Oswego County - Stewart, Ellen T., was born and educated in Pulaski. Her grandfather was born in Petersburg, N. Y., and her grandmother was a native of New England, where she was educated. The latter was an only child and a lady of intelligence. Her parents, having a large fortune, she spent much time in traveling, and desiring to see America she started with her ox team, driver, and servants, richly clad and sparkling with diamonds, about one hundred years ago on a western tour. Delighted with the country, she decided to make her home in this State, and returning to her birthplace brought her large kettle of gold, and began housekeeping with her husband in Petersburg, Rensselaer county. This New England gold was invested in real estate, which was divided into farms and given to their ten sons. Her grandfather, Eathel Stewart, through a business transaction, failed because of taking mortgages and neglecting to search the records. He was a Baptist, and furnished the material and built the church in the town where he lived. Her grandmother was an ardent Methodist. The business failure just mentioned left the father of the subject of this sketch a poor boy and threw him upon his own resources, but being a deep thinker and deciding experience was a good teacher, he started out for himself. He was a native of Petersburg, and while a boy, came with his parents, Eathel and Esther Stewart, to Oswego county. At the age of twenty-seven he married Betsey Jane White and began house keeping in what is called the Whitesboro neighborhood in the town of Sandy Creek. By industry and by the aid of his companion, he soon owned a comfortable home, which he shortly afterward gave to his aged parents and started again with new courage to make another home for himself and family. He purchased the 200 acre farm on the Ridge road in Sandy Creek, succeeded in paying for it and there lived several years. This is known as the Seneca Getty place and is one of the most productive farms in Oswego county. He finally moved to the well known Deacon Meacham farm, near Pulaski village, where he lived about nine years. Failing in health and deciding to retire from farming, he finally removed to the beautiful village of Pulaski, where he has since resided with his wife and only daughter, Miss Ellen T. Stewart. For twenty-four years he has lived in Pulaski; prior to that period, he was extensively and successfully engaged in agriculture, owning a number of farms in this vicinity. Her father and mother were disposed never to turn back from a work once commenced, and it was this characteristic which aided in making their lives successful. From a youth he was a regular attendant of the M. E. Church, and was often remarked going to church with his mother and with his white linen pants. He was an earnest worker in the cause of temperance, possessed sound judgment and decision of mind in business, and was noted for his integrity. With characteristic liberality he aided in building churches and public schools. When a boy he formed the evil habit of chewing tobacco, a mistake he often acknowledged and at the age of eighty-four banished it entirely, and his advice in print was for all men, and especially the young to do likewise, knowing they would all be happier, friendlier, wealthier, pleasanter, and more agreeable in society. On February 2, 1898, Mr. and Mrs. Stewart celebrated in a fitting manner their wedding anniversary, and also his eighty-ninth birthday. Their pastor, Rev. A. Bramley, they surprised with an elegant gold headed cane, which was presented in behalf of the host and hostess by the venerable Rev. Lawson Muzzy. He was a man of unusual happy disposition and told his daughter three weeks prior to his last sickness that his Heart was filled with thankfulness to my Redeemer and Friend, that if I never awake to the earthly sunlight again it will be well with me on the resurrection morning. He died after a life of rare usefulness on March 3, 1894 at the age of ninety years, one month and one day. His funeral was held at his residence in Pulaski on Monday, Revs. A. Bramley of Lowville and Webster of the first M. E. Church of Pulaski officiating, and the interment being in Pulaski cemetery at five o'clock. Her grandfather White and her mother and one brother were born in Rhuport, Vt. His first wife was Sally Linnet. Her mother's mother, second, was Catherine Decker. Both were ladies of amiable Christian character. Mr. White was a Bible student and would always have an appropriate reference when called upon. When they first came to Richland salmon were plenty and he caught large numbers of them. The country was somewhat a wilderness. Her mother and grandmother went at near night in search of their cows, each of which had a bell, which would guide them long distances. On one occasion they were lost in the woods and remained away two days and two nights. The neighbors were greatly alarmed and instituted a search, firing guns, ringing bells and blowing horns until they were found. Her grandmother being a feeble woman was nearly dead. While in the wilderness a terrific thunder storm came up and lasted throughout the night. To them were born these children: Dexter W., James Gilbert, Orin, Wilber Joel, Sally, Harriet Jane, Milton, Milton Delos, and Ellen Therrisser.-[Com.
