RICHARDSON, Frederick B. [The Bolivar Breeze; Th., 6/15/1905, p1c4 ] – FUNERAL NOTICE
"FUNERAL OF F.B. RICHARDSON
Attendance Was Very Large and Floral Tributes [Beautiful]. Interment at Woodlawn Cemetery.
The funeral of Frederick B. Richardson, who died in Wellsville on Thursday morning of consumption, was held at the Richardson home on Sunday afternoon at two o'clock. Though the weather was threatening the attendance was so large that more than 150 people were unable to [enter] the house and listened to the services from the lawn. The Hornellsville Lodge of Elks and the Wellsville Masonic Lodge attended the funeral in a body and the Masons conducted a service at the open grave.
Services at the house were conducted by Rev. W. C. Gates of Lockport, formerly of Wellsville and a warm personal friend of the deceased. Rev. Gates paid deserved tribute to the virtues of the dead. He was assisted by Dr. Richardson, the resident pastor. At the grave the regular Masonic service was held conducted by Wellsville Lodge.
The floral tributes were very beautiful, testifying he high esteem in which the young man was held. Hundreds of letters and telegrams of condolence were received from friends. Among those present were many of the leading citizens of the county, some coming from long distances to pay the last honors.
Fred B. Richardson was born at Richburg in 1875 and when he was a small boy the family moved to Belmont where his father, W. J. Richardson, established the State Bank of Belmont. Nine years ago the family moved to Wellsville. For fifteen years Frederick B. Richardson had been a frequent visitor in Richburg and Bolivar and all who knew him were his friends. The loss of their only child falls with crushing weight on Mr. & Mrs. Richardson but they are sustained and soothed by the loving ministrations of friends and the many expressions of sympathy."
