Joseph L. Wallace (his full name was Joseph Louis Xavier Francosis-sp? Wallace) born Harrington/Milbridge, Maine about 1834. His widow would have been Elmira.

For most of his life he had been a sea captain out of Milbridge, Maine.

He was living in Brooklyn in 1900 and his widow was in Brooklyn in 1910 but it is possible they returned to Maine (no Maine death in the records I can get to easily).

NEED AN EXACT DATE from a death record or a newspaper notice (1904 may not be right-found).

It's unlikely a full obit would be in a NY paper but very likely in a small local Maine newspaper than I can get to easily.
