      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, February 11, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Mrs. Stewart, wife of D. H. Stewart, of Richland, died on Tuesday morning. The deceased was a perfect lady in all her tastes and department and will be greatly missed, not only by her husband and family but by the entire community. Mr. Stewart is a veteran conductor on the R. W. & O. R. R. His many friends deeply sympathize with him in this his deep affliction. Deceased was thirty-eight years of age. The funeral will be held on Friday at 2:30 p.m.

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, February 18, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland - Although last Friday was very inclement indeed, the funeral of Mrs. Draper Stewart was largely attended at the Church of Christ. The floral offerings were superlatively beautiful. The was a floral "Gate Ajar," presented by the railroad company, and a floral device with the word "Sister" on it, presented by George Mellen, and many other flowers. The bearers were George Purdy, Frank Rowland, Brent Washburn, William Averill, Charles Field and L. J. Rounds, of Lacona. The services were conducted by Dr. Belding, of Troy. Rev. Hancock, foster Pratt, Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Potter, all of Orwell, with Mrs. G. D. Purdy, of Richland, as organist and soprano singer, composed the choir. The music was pronounced very superior indeed. The interment was in Richland cemetery. Mrs. Stewart was a woman of great loveliness of character; one who always made friends, never enemies. Next to her bereaved husband her loss will be most felt by her brother, whose life almost seemed bound up in her life. There is and affection between a brother and sister unlike any other, and when the grim messenger takes one of the twain, "It is hard to part."

      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, February 18, 1892 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - editor Democrat: The subject of this sketch, whose maiden name was Maria L. Mellen, was born at Sullivan, Ohio, November 19, 1854, and passed away to her eternal rest at her home in Richland, February 19, 1892, in the 38th year of her life. No sadder news was ever conveyed to the people of Richland and vicinity than the announcement of her death, and many were the friends that were unable to realize that they could never see her face again in life. Her illness was of many months' duration, with intense suffering much of the time, yet she bore it all in the spirit of true Christian patience which had characterized her life and actions, and had won a large circle of friends who deeply feel their loss in this early death. Mrs. Stewart took great delight in church work, and was very active in everything which she thought would make the community better, and especially anxious to see the young giving their energy to a life of purity and right living. Her death creates a vacancy in the church society where she was associated, that years of toil cannot fill. Many sorrowful hearts far away, would have been glad to have mingled their tears with those that wept at her grave. With special sadness does her death come to a brother, and her husband, who said that no unkind word ever escaped her lips during their 17 years of married life. Thus has passed away a true wife, a loving sister, a devoted friend and neighbor, to that land where sadness and death are never known. The many beautiful floral offerings spoke in silent tones of sorrow, of the abiding love and friendship in many hearts. Her funeral was at the Disciples' Church at Richland, on Friday, February 12, 1892, conducted by Rev. Dr. Belden, of Troy. S. C. M. Black River, New York.

      Vitals - February 9, 1892 - Maria L. Stewart, age 37 years, 9 months, 8 days, born in Richland Township, Daughter of Norman and Lucretia Mellen, died in Richland Township of heart failure.
