    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, July 27, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In Pulaski, New York, July 22, 1893, very suddenly, from neuralgia of the heart, Helen A. Lam, relict of the late James A. Clark, Esq., aged 71 years. Mrs. Clark was born near Prattham, in the town of Mexico, April 22, 1822, child of James and Mary Lam. Her marriage with James A. Clark, afterwards one of the leading merchants and bankers of Pulaski, occurred April 21, 1846. The newly married couple at once settled in Pulaski, occupying what is now known as the John F. Box house, near the academy. Subsequently they lived in the Beadle house on Lake street hi '67 and '68 Mr. Clark built the elegant brick mansion on Lake street which has been occupied by them since that time, a beautiful home. The husband died June 13, 1887. Thus was a sad blow to Mrs. Clark, who has since then lived a quiet and retired life. She was a lady especially devoted to her family, and while she had warm friends, was not greatly devoted to what is known as society. Mrs. Clark was the mother of three children, Edward L. Clark, who died January 18, 1888; Louis J. Clark, cashier of the Pulaski National Bank of which institution deceased was president, and Mrs. Nellie T. Peck, of Mexico. A sister, Mrs. Emily Copp, of Prattham, also survives. L. J. Clark, her son, with his wife, was visiting in Oswego at the time of her sudden death. Taken ill Friday morning, Mrs. Clark called her grandson, Fred Clark, who summoned the family physician, Dr. Low. She soon revived, but Saturday afternoon at five o'clock, in the presence of her daughter, Mrs. Peck, suddenly passed away. The funeral was held Tuesday afternoon, Rev. A. S. Emmons officiating. Among the flowers was an elegant pillow of white roses and orchids, the gift of Mrs. O. H. Peckham, of St. Louis, Missouri. Sincerely mourned by family and friends, she has gone to join husband and son, in that blissful land where the weary are at rest.
