Andrew J. Pudney Dies
Sunday at Home in Morris
Morris, Aug. 25---Andrew Jackson Pudney died Sunday morning at 10:30 at his home on Hargrave street in Morris. Mr. and Mrs. Pudney moved to Morris from their farm near New Berlin last April. Mr. Pudney had been in failing health for a long time, but able to be about, and the end came as a shock to his family.
The deceased was born in Sherburne in 1845, a son of John and Irene Pudney, and as a young man was a cheesemaker. Following his marriage to Emma P. Matteson, he began farming, on which place he lived thereafter. To them were born four children, Hiram, who died in infancy, William, who died several years ago, and two daughters, Mrs. Mary Parker of Mt. Upton, and Mrs. Irene Parker of Garrattsville.
Mr. Pudney was twice married. Twenty-six years ago he married Miss Cora Backus of Pittsfield, who has been his companion and helper ever since.
The funeral service was held from his late home Wednesday at 1 p. m.
Rev. C. E. Vermilya officiated in the absence of the Baptist pastor, deceased being a member of the Baptist church at New Berlin.
Interment was made in the Hillington cemetery. A large number of relatives from out of town were present for the service.
