      Newspaper Article - Thursday, May 25, 1893 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Richland - Veteran Willard Watkins - On the 12th of last April the remains of Willard Watkins were brought from Sandy Creek where they were interred fifteen years ago. Mr. Watkins was born in Jefferson county. Thirty years ago he was married to Miss Mary Pangburn, whose paternal home was where Marshall Lighthall now lives. During the war he enlisted in the black-horse cavalry and served six months. Later he enlisted in Company B, 110th New York Volunteers, and remained until the close of the war, nearly four years. Since that time he lived in Richland most of the time, lived where Elton Lighthall lives now and ran the shingle mill that was then on that place but is now among the things that were. He lived for a while in Parish then went to Sandy Creek for a few months. While there he sickened and died and was buried there. The U. S. government placed a stone at his grave. Last month, his remains and those of his son-in-law, were exhumed and interred in the Richland cemetery, thus making one more soldier's grave to decorate.
