    • Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, December 26, 1894 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Sherman Clark - An Old Resident and Highly Respected Citizen at Rest - Sixty-six years last April, in the year 1828, there was born to Sherman and Nancy Dickerman Clark, in the town of Unadilla, New York, a son, Sherman Clark, the subject of this sketch and memorial. When but a mere lad his parents removed to Prattliam, Mexico town, this county, and soon after to Pulaski. The Sherman Clark family is one of the most prominent, widely connected and best known families in this county. Sherman Clark, Sr., for many years had charge of the jail in Oswego, and later on was prominently known as one of the leading citizens of Pulaski. Sherman Clark, Jr., had four sisters and three brothers who now survives him: Mrs. John Crawford, of Oneida; Mrs. E. C. McCarty, Mrs. W. B. Dixson, Mrs. Susan Bentley, all of Pulaski; also Charles A. Clark, H. B. Clark, of this village, and Cyrus S. Clark, of Oneida. The late James A. Clark was also a brother. In October, 1854, Sherman Clark, Jr., was married in Oswego to Miss Sarah M. Woodbourne, a native of England, but then of that city. Four children survive, and with their mother mourn the loss of an indulgent husband and father. They are Mrs. G. W. Betts, Mrs. F. W. Sharp, Miss Anna E. Clark and Miss Jessie W. Clark, all residing in Pulaski. The only grandchild, Miss Josephine Sharp, also sincerely mourns her grandfather's death. Mr. Clark served as jailer at Oswego for nine years, one term being while Dr. Low was sheriff. He also served in the same capacity in Pulaski under Sheriff Doyle. For thirty-two years he has, with the exception of three years, lived in Pulaski. He served our village very efficiently as street commissioner for several terms. About nine years since, Mr. Clark fell from the roof of a building, and has never been well since. A creeping paralysis made its appearance, from which he has never recovered. Last Friday he experienced a partial shock of paralysis, and on Monday, December 24th, quietly breathed his last. Mr. Clark was a man of sterling integrity. The funeral will be held today at two o'clock at his late residence on Lake Street, Rev. Robert Paul, of St. James's church, officiating.
