It is with sadness that we chronicle this week, the death of Rev. Andrew E. Schepmoes, who expired at his home in this village on Tuesday night after an illness of about five weeks. Mr. Schepmoes came to New Paltz about nine years ago, and continued to live here up to the time of his death. The deceased was born in Kingston, Feb. 1st, 1823, consequently he was in the 73rd year of age ___ his boyhood he had been apprenticed to the tailor's trade at which he worked for a time, but in after years he took up school teaching for a livelihood, and no teacher was never more successful, or no person better known throughout the county of Ulster than he, for he had taught school in various parts of it. In church work Mr. Schepmoes was earnest and active, being a member of the M.E. church in this place; here he will be greatly missed, for he was always ready and willing to do whatever he could for its welfare. He also had a large class in the Sunday School. Besides a large circle of friends, a widow and two sons, DeWitt of this village, and Charles of Kingston, survive him and mourn his loss. His funeral services will be held in the M.E. church to-day (Friday) at half past one o'clock p.m. Interment in New Paltz Rural Cemetery.
New Paltz Independent March 8, 1895
