Schuyler L. Woodard Dies
at Residence in Morris

Morris, Nov. 15---Schuyler L. Woodard, a retired merchant of Morris, passed away in his sleep early Thursday morning at his residence on East Main street, after a long illness.
Schuyler Legrand Woodard, youngest son of John S. and Phoebe (Olin) Woodard, was born March 27, 1861, in the town of Pittsfield, where he grew to manhood.
May 10, 1885, he married Miss Minnie Williams of Pittsfield, who survives, and who tenderly cared for him during his long invalidism. To them were born three daughters, Mrs. Clyde Sloan of Morris, Mrs. Claude Mansfield, who died April 3, 1912, and Mrs. Douglas Barry of Albany.
Mr. Woodard owned and operated a large farm in Pittsfield for a number of years after his marriage. In 1903 the family moved to Morris village, where Mr. Woodard conducted a meat market on Main street, in what is now the Meinick building. Some time later he moved across the street and added a grocery department to his store. About eight years ago failing health caused him to dispose of his stock of goods and retire from active work.
He was a genial man and the contacts which he made with the public during his years of salesmanship won him many friends.
Immediate surviving relatives are the widow and two daughters; a grandson, Adolphus Sloan of Morris; two nephews, Lynn J. Woodard of New Berlin and John A. Woodard of Edmeston; also one niece, Mrs. Arthur Hawkins of West Burlington, to all of whom much sympathy is extended.
