MOUNT RODERICK

Funeral of Emory Adelbert Dwight Held Saturday Afternoon

Mount Roderick, March 21.- Emory Adelbert Dwight, whose death occured at his home Thursday morning, March 14, was born in the town of German, July 29, 1854, the son of Henry and Margaret Glenn Dwight.

He was one of seven children, George, Amanda, John, Adelbert, Porter, and Cornelia, now Mrs. Eslie Dyer, of whom George of Cortland, Porter of DeRuyter and Mrs. Dyer of West Exeter, survive.

Mr. Dwight was twice married, being united with Miss Hattie Banks of German, Dec 22, 1874. She lived but two years, being a victim of tuberculosis. On Dec 31, 1879, he was united in marriage to Miss Clara Livingston of Solon, ( d/o John D. & Ruth E. Cline Livingston a.t), and to them one daughter, Grace Livingston Dwight, was born, both of whom survive.

Mr. and Mrs. Dwight have lived in this community 43 years and the last 33 on the farm where he died, formerly the Livingston homestead.

Mr. Dwight was a man of sound judgement, whose word was as good as his bond, honored and respected by all, a good neighbor, a true friend and a kind husband and father.

Although in failing health for several years he has been able to attend to business affairs and help his wife and daughter with the chores until the last few weeks. He was not confined to the bed but one or two days.

The funeral was held at the house Saturday at 1:30 o'clock. Rev. Mr. Sears of Cincinnatus officiated. It was largely attended despite the almost impassable condition of the roads, while the quantities of flowers gave mute evidence of the love and esteem in which Mr. Dwight and family held. The remains were placed in the vault at Cincinnatus awaiting burial in Lower Cincinnatus cemetery.
