      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, April 22, 1886 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Found Dead - Mr. Seymour Moody, of this town, was found dead in his bed at his own house, located about one mile south of this village, on Saturday afternoon about half past two o’clock. Mr. Moody was unmarried and lived alone in his house, doing his own work. He was a soldier during the war, and from injuries received at that time, was partially paralyzed in his lower limbs, and drew a pension from the government. Coroner Caldwell summoned a jury and held an inquest on the remains. Harry Moody, aged 16 years, was the first witness. He first saw the deceased by looking through a window. Saw him lying on one side as though sleeping. The doors and windows were all fastened. R. W. Box, undertaker, was next sworn. His evidence showed quite conclusively that the deceased had gone to bed as usual and that nothing about the house had been disturbed. When he found the body it was quite rigid as though life had been extinct some eight or ten hours. D. G. Moody, the next witness, testified that the deceased was 47 years of age; had heard him complain of his heart and chest, Mr. Moody also described finding the body as though deceased had died in bed while sleeping. Dr. F. S. Low, who had occasionally attended Mr. Moody, testified that in his opinion the deceased came to his death from paralysis of the heart; and the jurors brought in their verdict accordingly. The names of the jurors are as follows: T. H. Hall, foreman, J. H. Preston, A. C. Brown, G. D. Ingersoll, M. S. Kelley, Z. Kiblin, S. Wolcott, and James G. Fellows.
