    • Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, June 15, 1876 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Sudden Death - A very sudden death occurred in the Methodist Church on Sunday evening last. It was the occasion of the temperance lecture of Miss LeJeune before a union meeting. The victim was Mr. Ebenezer Moody, a long known and highly respected citizen of this town. On the evening of the day in question, which was an exceedingly warm one, the deceased walked from his home in the country to the church, and as he was a very large man, weighing about 315 pounds, the heat became very oppressive, and shortly after taking a seat, which he did in one of the pews at front which run lengthwise of the church, he was observed to drop his head and slowly sway forwards. He was at once removed from the church by Messers. Jones and Bean, but was pronounced quite dead by Dr. Betts, who was present. The body was removed by R. W. Box to the home which the deceased had left only an hour since in perfect health. The cause of his death was a disease of the heart to which fleshy people are subject. Mrs. Moody was sitting by his side at the time of his death, and was very deeply affected. The funeral services were held at the residence of the deceased on Tuesday at 11 o'clock, Rev. J. Douglas conducting the services. The question of adjourning the lecture or of continuing was submitted by Rev. Mr. Thurston to the audience, and the vote was decided to be for continuing. It would certainly have been an active Christian courtesy to have adjourned at once, out of respect both for the deceased, his wife and friends, and we doubt not that this would have been done were it not for the excitement which prevailed at the time.
