      Newspaper Obituary - Monday Evening, January 25, 1904 Oswego Daily Times - Oswego, New York - Death of Judah Macy - Well-Known Resident of Pulaski and Civil War Passes Away at Advanced Age - Pulaski, January 24 - Judah Macy, the venerable father of Colonel Lewis J. Macy, one of Pulaski's oldest and most highly respected citizens, passed away Saturday evening at the home of his son, with whom he had lived for many years. Christmas day he sustained a severe shock of paralysis and had another shock Thursday afternoon, which, combined with an organic heart trouble, was the cause of death. Four sons survive: Colonel Lewis J. Macy of Pulaski, Theodore Macy of Jacksonville, Florida, Warren D. Macy of Beloit, Wisconsin, who is now in England, and Charles D. Macy of Noblesville, Indiana. His wife died about fifteen years ago. Mr. Macy was born in Rochester, March 6, 1825. His parents died when he was a mere youth and he was then taken to Chatham Four Comers, where he made his home with relatives. When a young man he learned the papermaking business at that place. After a time he went to Manlius, Onondaga County, coming to this town in 1855, accompanied by his four sons, residing here since that time. He engaged in farming for several years, taking up his residence in this village in 1861 and engaging in papermaking. In 1862 he enlisted and was attached to the 110th Regiment, New York Infantry, and in 1865 he again enlisted, going with the 193d Regiment, New York Infantry. The deceased was a charter member of J. B. Butler Post No. 111, G. A. R., and that organization will have charge of the burial service. The funeral will be held at the Methodist Church in this village at 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon. Rev. Sidney O. Barnes will officiate.

      Newspaper Obituary - Wednesday, January 27, 1904 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Another Veteran Gone - Judah Macy Answers the Last Call -Death has again entered the ranks of the Grand Army boys and taken the seventh in about a year from our midst, and this time it is one of the well-known and long to be remembered figures in the community, Judah Macy. Ill health for several years, a shock Christmas morning, another Friday, and the life is extinguished and another veteran has answered the final roll call. Judah Macy was born in Rochester, March 6, 1825. He was the son of a Quaker preacher. His mother died when he was five years old and two years later the father was called away. Judah, a boy of seven, was bound to an uncle at Chatham, New York, where he resided until the age of twenty-one when he entered as apprentice the trade of papermaking. He went from Chatham to Manlius. He married while residing there and from the union there came five children, four sons and one daughter. The daughter died in infancy but the sons, Theodore, a resident of Jacksonville, Florida, Lewis J., of this village, Warren D., of Beloit, Wisconsin, now in England on business, and Charles B., of Noblesville, Indiana, survived the father, the mother having died several years ago. Mr. Macy removed to the town of Sandy Creek in 1855, where he engaged in farming and removed to this village in 1861. In 1862 he enlisted in the service of his country, going out with the 110th New York Volunteers, from which Regiment he was discharged for disability and he later enlisted in the 193rd New York Volunteers, remaining to the close of the war being honorably discharged as corporal. Since the death of his wife he has resided with his son, Lewis, who has been devoted and thoughtful, always considering his father's necessities and comforts, and during the last months of his life, helpless as a child, the son has given him his undivided attention. Mr. Macy was favored with many friends and to all he was ever cordial and courteous, which made him most compatible among them and especially among the veterans, whose meetings were ever graced with his presence when he could consistently be with them. The funeral was largely attended, yesterday, at two o'clock from the Methodist church, Rev. S. O. Barnes officiating. His casket was draped with the stars and stripes and the floral tributes were mute reminders of the thought of loved ones. The active bearers were C. E. Seamans, W. T. Morton, J. W. Parkhurst, Henry Hinman, George Lindo and John Burr, sons of Veterans, and members of A. S. Warner Camp, in which organization Mr. Macy always showed much interest and pride, for two reasons; one, because it was so closely related to the Grand Army, and the other because his devoted son was an honor to the organization, and through his devotion to it brought the name Macy before the whole country. Many of the Grand Army boys were present to pay the last sad tribute of respect to their fallen comrade. The Grand Army burial service was recited at the church. From the discourse delivered at the church by Mr. Barnes we get the following particulars on Mr. Macy's military record: He enlisted in Company B, 110th Regiment, August 6, 1862, and was discharged on account of injuries, at Baltimore in January, 1863. Regaining his health he enlisted in a Company I, 193rd Regiment, remaining to the close of the war. He was a member of Company B Reunion Association which meets in this village, June 14th of each year. Mr. Macy was a chatter member of J. B. Butler Post, G. A. R., and was deeply interested in the order. He greatly enjoyed all gatherings of his comrades and never failed to attend the National Encampments when health would permit. Only his sons Lewis and Charles were able to be here at the funeral.
