    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, May 26, 1859 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Died - In Sandy Creek, on the 16th instant, Mr. Philo B. Sage, in the 81st year of his age. Mr. Sage was one of our oldest inhabitants. He came here in 1804, when there were only three towns in this portion of Oswego County, east of the Oswego River, viz. Mexico, Redfield and Williamstown. Richland and Sandy Creek belonged in Williamstown. He settled here with Mrs. Sage in 1806. There was no road between this place and Williamstown at that time, and he and others with him were obliged to out one through the wilderness to obtain a passage for their teams. He belonged to a party of sis, who came from Pawlet, Vermont and made the first permanent improvements that were made here. There were no settlements at that date between Williamstown and Ellisburgh. Some half dozen individuals had got into this locality ahead of them, and there were two or three log shanties already up. Mr. Ephriam Fox had erected a little cabin near where the court house now stands, and there was a small clearing between this and Pineville, but the first efforts to make a town where Pulaski now is, was made by Mr. Sage, Messers. John and Simon Meacham, Gershom Hale, Ephriam Brewster and David Kidder. Mr. Sage was an industrious, upright man, and consequently a valuable citizen. He was one of that sort of men whom it is unnecessary to praise, he was a good man.
