Samuel Wolcott of Front street died on Friday morning of paralysis of the brain, aged 57 years. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon at Trinity church. Rev. Robert MacKellar had charge of the service. The pall bearers were Thomas Curtis, John Vanderbilt, Thomas Wise and John Sickles. The body was buried at Long Branch City. Mr. Wolcott was the son of Peter Wolcott and was born at Eatontown. After leaving school at Eatontown he went to Orange to work for his cousin, Roland Johnson. About thirty years ago he moved back to Eatontown and took up the carpenter trade. Fifteen years later he was obliged to give up carpenter work on account of a stroke of paralysis. He then moved to Red Bank and engaged in flower gardening. Two years ago he was again stricken with paralysis and he had since been confined to his bed. Mr. Wolcott served in the civil war with the 38th New Jersey regiment and had been granted a pension. He was a member of Trinity church and before he became helpless from paralysis he had been sexton of the church for twelve years. A wife and six children survive him. The children are Mrs. Jacob Strauss, Mrs. Thomas Murphy, and Herbert, Roland J., James and Percy Wolcott, all of whom live at Red Bank. All are grown up except Percy.
