      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, June 2, 1949 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Walter Sharp Taken by Death - Walter Sharp, one of the oldest well known residents of Pulaski, was found dead in bed, Saturday morning at the home of George Soderlund, Box Street, where he had made his home the past several months. He had been suffering from a heart ailment for some time but was thought to be improving, before his death. Funeral services were held from the Foster funeral home Monday at 2:30 p.m. with Rev. James N. Pauley, pastor of the Methodist church officiating. Burial was made in Riverside cemetery. He was survived by two nieces, Mrs. Jack Marriott of Sauquoit, and Mrs. Fred Dinse of Ontario and two nephews, Fred Haggerty of Florida, and William T. Sharp, of Pulaski. Mr. Sharp was born February 24, 1866, in the Lehigh district, a son of George and Emily Burch Sharp, where he attended school as a boy. When a young man, he went into the mid-west where he worked in a number of cities and finally became an express messenger running out of St. Louis to the Southwest, through Oakland, and into Texas. This was in the days when robberies were quite frequent and bandits were plentiful, and all express cars were fortified and messengers heavily armed. The many friends of Mr. Sharp will recall the hair-raising experiences which he related from his encounters in the west. He returned to Pulaski many years ago, and has been engaged in painting and paper hanging in this vicinity, until about a year ago. He was also an excellent gardener, taking pride in one of the best gardens in this area. Mr. Sharp never married.
