    • New Paltz Independent, July 25, 1907

      Two brothers have left us at about the same time. Philip departed this life at his residence in this village on Sunday morning at about 5 o'clock and his brother, Henry the same afternoon at about 2 o'clock. The latter was 78 years of age, the former 71. Both have been for a long term of years among the best known, most respected and most influential citizens in the town. The same statement holds true in regard to the long line of ancestors, stretching back over two centuries and residing during all these generations in the same part of the town, though not on the same farm, where Solomon DuBois, son of Louis the Patentee, located about 1690.

      Mr. Philip D. DuBois returned to his home in this village a month ago with his wife and daughter, after an absence of nearly a year, much of the time having been spent with relatives of his wife in Texas and a shorter period in Ohio. He had not been sick a day during his absence and had enjoyed the sojourn in the south and west. A few days after his return he visited Mohonk and was taken sick there. He did not improve and died as above stated. Mr. DuBois was a man of great intelligence, extensive information and excellent judgement. He had his opinion and was able to give his reason for his opinion on matters generally. It was always a pleasure to converse with him. Although, he had passed the period of three score and ten his health had been good and it seemed that he might have a long period of useful life still before him. Mr. DuBois resided on the farm, which had been the residence of his father Jacob G. DuBois until about 1885, when he married Mrs. Emily Deyo Hayden and shortly afterwards built the house in this village, where they afterwards resided. Mrs. DuBois was a native of this town and daughter of Philip Deyo.

      The deceased leaves, besides his widow, one daughter, Gertrude, one brother, Solomon and two sisters, Mrs. Josiah LeFevre and Mrs. Ira Deyo, a step-son and a step-daughter; also a large number of nephews, nieces and more distant relatives. The funeral was held at the late residence on Tuesday afternoon, Rev. Dr. Oggel and Rev. Mr. Lasher officiating. The bearers, all nephews, either by birth or marriage, were Peter Deyo, Perry Deyo, C.L. Van Orden, Josiah LeFevre, Philip H. DuBois and Roelif E. DuBois
