Excerpt from the The Rutland daily globe, November 10, 1873:
The mortal remains of Louis Gaylord Clark, the twin brother of Willis Gaylord Clark, were borne to their resting place in the family plot in Nyack Cemetery, Friday afternoon. The funeral was attended by a large concourse of the friends of Mr. Clark, including many of the authors and journalists of New York.
The services were performed in the little Episcopal church four miles from the residence of Mr. Clark's family in Piermont.
The plain rich black covered, silver-mounted coffin was carried from the hearse into the church.
"I know that my Redeemer lives" was sung by the choir and then Mr. Hitchcock began the burial service by reading from the lesson, "Now Is Christ risen from the dead and become the first fruits of them that slept." The service was shortened to permit the return of the visitors from the city, and no sermon followed.
At the conclusion, the lid of the coffin was opened, and the friends took their farewell look at be face of the dead. The procession moved up one side of the aisle and passed down the other. Then the lid was closed and locked and the pall bearers bore the coffin from the church to the sound of the same low-strain of music that had ushered them in. The friends followed the hearse in about twenty carriages up the beautiful carriageway along the banks of the Hudson.
There the burial service was concluded. Louis Gaylord Clark's dust was consigned to dust.
