  • Notes 
    • Rev. Joseph Harrison Wright - died March 20, 1889, age 39 years. Husband of Ella Mary King Wright. Married April 26, 1876.
      Newspaper Obituary - Thursday, March 28, 1889 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Sudden Death of Noted Clergyman - But few occasions of bereavement has ever awakened in this community so universally, feelings of sympathy and sadness as when the mournful intelligence was received of the death of Rev. Joseph H. Wright, of Xenia, Ohio, the husband of the eldest daughter of Don A. King, Esq., of this village. Mr. Wright died of pneumonia, the 20th of this month, at Xenia, Ohio. He graduated at Union College, Schenectady, in 1873, and subsequently at Union Theological Seminary, New York City. His first pastorate was in Davenport, this state, but he soon received a call to the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he remained about three years, when he received and accepted a call to the United Presbyterian church in Xenia, Ohio, one of the largest and most prosperous churches of that denomination existing in the United States. For nine years Mr. Wright has been its pastor, highly esteemed and greatly beloved by the congregation to whom he ministered. When the sad intelligence of the death of Mr. Wright was telegraphed to this place, Mr. King, accompanied by the eldest daughter of Mr. Wright, who had been spending the winter at the home of her grandfather, proceeded immediately to Xenia. The funeral services were attended on Saturday of last week. Memorial services are appointed for next Sabbath. The deeply afflicted congregation presented through their church officers, resolutions to Mrs. Wright, expressive not only of their tenderest sympathy in her bereavement, but also of the deep sense of their own great loss, and of high esteem and profound affection for their beloved pastor, in the recognition of his superior abilities as a preacher and earnest devotion as a pastor. The remains of Mr. Wright, with those of a son who died some two years since, are expected here on the return of Mr. King this week, to receive here in the village cemetery, their final interment. The arrival of Mr. King is looked for on the train from the West via Syracuse, at 2 o'clock this, Wednesday, afternoon.
