Joshua Streeter Hernden was born in Granville, Washington County, N. Y. He was converted when a young man 24 years of age. He walked uprightly, walked in his integrity up to the hour of his death. When 21 years old he went to sea on board a whaling vessel , visiting the Island of Madagascar and the coast of Africa. After an absence of one year he returned home, remaining five years. Three years after he went on a second voyage, returning in eleven months with a full cargo of oil. In 1836 he came west with one sister and Messrs. Alcott & Thomas White, in the town of Cuba, where he has resided fifty-seven years. He held the office of Town-
Ship School Treasurer twenty-seven consecutive years, and was in that position at the time of his death. His politics were Republican until the Prohibition party asked for and then demanded a recognition of their principles. He was opposed to human slavery and organized secrecy. The question with him always was not “What was the best policy,” or “What is expedient?” but “What is right?” He was outspoken in his principles. The law of truth was in his mouth, and iniquity was not found in his lips. He leaves as an inheritance not worldly goods, but a noble, and
upright life. He died Feb. 27, 1892, aged 85 years, 11 months and 10 days, leaving a widow, five sons and one daughter. Funeral services conducted by the Rev. Frank Fish and sermon preached by the Rev. A. W. Parry from the text, “Mark the perfect man and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.” Psalm, 37:37.
Wedding Bells at Lake Zurich.
Feb. 22 was a day of much joy at Zurich, the event being the marriage of Miss Lydia, the youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Whitney, to Mr. James H. Snetsinger of Newington, Ontario. The weather was mild and all nature seemed to grant its blessings upon the occasion. Friends and relatives began to assemble early in the evening at the home of the bride’s parents, and precisely at
8 o’clock the happy pair became husband and wife. The Rev. Bailey of the Barrington Baptist Church officiated. After congratulations the company repaired to the dining-hall, where a repast was served which would do credit to any host and hostess. After supper prayer was offered by the Rev. Bailey, an original poem by Mr. George Spunner and congratulatory telegrams from friends in Ontario were read. The remainder of the evening was spent in merry-making. The
bride was tastefully attired and wore natural flowers. The presents were both beautiful and useful and betokened the high esteem in which the young couple were held by their many friends. In the morning, Feb. 23, Mr. and Mrs. Snetsinger were accompanied to Chicago by a number of friends, where they took the train at 3 o’clock for Newington to spend the honeymoon with the groom’s parents, returning about March 20, and will reside at Lake Zurich.
