Hon. William M. Vrooman, Mayor of Dowagiac and an infuential business man of this city, was born in Jackson County, Mich., October 4, 1848, being the son of Charles W. Vrooman, a native of New York and a pioneer of Michigan. William M. was reared in Jackson County, and his schooling was obtained in the district schools, but his education has been gained principally by observation and experience. At the age of twenty-one Mr. Vrooman purchased land in Jackson County, and engaged in farming there for three years, after which he came to Dowagiac and engaged in the hardware business in this city for eighteen months. Returning to Jackson County, he located on the old Vrooman homestead and remained there until the fall of 1882, when he sold the property and again came to Dowagiac. Forming a partnership with G. E. Bishop, under the firm name of Bishop & Vrooman, our subject conducted a flourishing business until the winter of 1890, when the partnership was dissolved. Buying out the firm of Bliss & Gilbert, Mr. Vrooman has since conducted business alone. On Front Street he has a commodious and conveniently arraigned storeroom, twenty feet front and one hundred feet deep, and he utilizes the basement and upper floors. In addition to this, he has a large warehouse, where he stores his agricultural implements, etc. He carries on an extensive and lucrative business in agricultural implements and carriages, and also keeps on hand a complete assortment of hardware and tinware, as well as stoves and ranges. At the present time six men are given steady employment and a flourishing business is conducted. October 4, 1870, Mr. Vrooman married Miss Eliza, daughter of Allen McMichell, and a native of Jackson County, Mich. Two children have blessed the union, Bert A. and Bessie, who are attending school at Dowagiac. Politically, Mr. Vrooman is a Democrat, and is actively interested in local politics. In the spring of 1891 he was elected Mayor of the city and is still serving in that position, having been instrumental in securing many municipal reforms and much-needed improvements. In 1887 he became Treasurer of the city and filled that position one year. He also served for one year as Supervisor, and in all the official positions occupied by him has served with credit to himself and to the universal satisfaction of the people. In regard to social connections, he is a Knight of Pythias and a member of the order of United Woodmen of America. 1900 Merchent on a Hardware Strore in Dowagiac,MI

59 "Richard Ely and his wife and children, old neighbors of the Smiths and Everts in Salisbury, Conn., learning of the fertility of the soil, excellence of timber, and other advantages so desirable, determined to try their fortunes there, and, packing their goods, they started in the year 1795, and, after the usual trials incident to such a journey, arrived at the residence of their old friends, and were warmly greeted as a welcome addition to the new settlement. They soon located on the Lake Road, where Rice Ervey now lives. They had eight children, -- Betsey, Richard, Augustus, Harry, William, Irena, Hector, and Calvin, the last being by a second wife. Betsey married Jabez Smith; Richard married Sally Boardman; Augustus married Olive Scoville. Their son, William Ely, lives near the homestead of his father, about a mile east of the Lake Road. Harry married Mary Wickham, and he is still living on the Lake Road, at the age of ninety years. William married Fanny Curry; Irena married John King; Hector married Ann Hinckley. He was the first white child born in town, and has a son, Hector, living on the Lake Road. Calvin married Julia Hager."

H. Emmett Witter, son of Charles H. and Abbie K. Witter, was born October 15, 1854, in the town of Wirt, N. Y., and died at Bethesda Hospital, Hornell, April 6, 1945.

He was united in marriage to Eola A. Allen of Alfred December 30, 1879. Mrs. Witter passed away May 28, 1930. He was the oldest living member of the First Alfred Seventh Day Baptist Church; he joined the church in 1879, retaining an active membership of sixty-six years.

Seven children survive: Charles H., Laura J., Ethel Wilcox, J. Etta, E. Allen, Frances Johnson, and Raymond B. Also surviving are two brothers, Rev. E. Adelbert and Charles E.; a sister, Mrs. Jessie W. Randolph; thirteen grandchildren; several nieces and nephews.

A prayer service was held at the home, followed by farewell services at the church. His pastor, Rev. E. T. Harris, officiated. Burial was in Alfred Rural Cemetery.

In Andersonville Prison, Georgia, Oct. 31st, 1864, of scurvy, Mr. Charles H. Witter, son of Edwin P. and Mary Ann Witter, of Nile, Allegany Co., N. Y., aged 35 years and 6 months. He was taken prisoner at Plymouth, having served in the 85th N. Y. S. V. about two years. He professed religion several years ago, and united with the Seventh-day Baptist Church of Nile, and continued a faithful, living member, till his death. He leaves a wife and five young children to lament his loss.

In Nile, N. Y., Oct. 4th, 1871, Clark Witter, in the 84th year of his age.

Bro. Witter became hopefully converted in early manhood, and united with the 1st Alfred Church, Allegany Co., N. Y. After a residence of some years within the bounds of this church, he removed to the town of Willing in the same county, where a little band of Sabbath-keepers were organized into a church. In this connection he remained until the church ceased to exist as a church. He then sought and found a home in the Friendship Seventh-day Baptist Church, where he remained a faithful member until removed by death.

The general testimony as to his Christian character is that he was truly an epistle known and read by all who were privileged to associate with him. A widow and several children still live to bear witness to his amiable and Christian character. In his case was exemplified the saying, "that a good man obtaineth favor of the Lord."

She was a worthy member of the Seventh-day Baptist Church in Scio, highly esteemed by all who knew her, for her piety and amiable disposition, in all walks of life. She has left a husband, and a large circle of relatives, to mourn their loss.

73 "The Sabbath Recorder", Vol 81, No 21, p 670, Nov. 20, 1916.

Abbie K. Witter, the daughter of John and Harriet Gifford Edwards, was born in Little Genesee, N. Y., July 7, 1832, and died Wednesday, October 25, 1916, aged 84 years, 3 months, and 17 days.

She was educated in the common schools of the town until she entered the academy at Alfred, N. Y., which has since grown into Alfred University. Here she graduated on her twentieth birthday. The next day after her graduation, July 8, 1852, she was married to Charles Henry Witter. The family lived in the township of Wirt, near Nile, N. Y., for a number of years.

In 1862, Mr. Witter went into the army, was taken prisoner and died at Andersonville in September, 1864, leaving Mrs. Witter with six children. One of these went to live with an aunt, a Mrs. Allen, of Alfred, N. Y., and died at twelve years of age. Mrs. Witter lived at Alfred with her son, E. Adelbert while he was there in college. Afterward she came to Rhode Island and lived for a time with J. A. Saunders, near Bradford, R. I., whose first wife was her daughter, Belle. She returned to Alfred for a time, but came again to Rhode Island to live with her son Charles, with whom she has since made her home.

Mrs. Witter was converted to the Lord Jesus Christ when she was about thirteen years of age. She was baptized and united with the Seventh Day Baptist church of Little Genesee, N. Y. Several years ago her membership was transferred to the First Westerly church, located at Dunn's Corners, R. I., and she has been very active in the support of that body since.

It was natural for her to engage in religious work, for she had a gift in that direction. She was the one who drafted the first plan for the Woman's Auxiliary Society of the Seventh Day Baptist Denomination. One of her recent acts was a gift to furnish a room in the Lieu-oo Hospital, China. Mrs. Witter was much interested in the work of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union. She always was very loyal to Alfred and had hoped to found a branch alumni association in Westerly.

She leaves to mourn the loss of a faithful and talented mother four children: Rev. E. Adelbert, pastor of the Second Hopkinton Church, Hopkinton City, R. I.; H. Emmett, of Alfred, N. Y.; Charles E., of Westerly, N. Y.; and Jessie A. Randolph, of Plainfield, N. J.

Funeral services were held at the home of her son on School Street, Sabbath Day, October 28, at 1:30 p. m., conducted by Rev. Clayton A. Burdick, assisted by Rev. S. H. Davis.

Burial was in First Hopkinton Cemetery.

75 "Tousey.- Suddenly in his office in this village, Orville Tousey, Esq.., of disease of the heart on Saturday, June 1st, aged 56 years. Mr. Tousey had not been a well man for several years; yet the state of his health had not been such as to preclude him from engaging actively and assiduously in private business and in the duties of his office. His death sudden and unexpected falls with crushing weight upon his afflicted family, and cast a sadness over the entire community. No man was more universally nor more favorably known in this vicinity than Orville Tousey. The deceased was a native of Connecticut; and he developed in his life, in a marked degree, all the energy, activity, business capacity and integrity which characterize the men of his state. In his boyhood he removed to Penfield, Monroe county, in this State; but in early manhood he made this village his home-- for thirty-six years he has been a resident here. It is safe to say that during this whole time no man has been so much engaged in, or so intimately acquainted with, the public business and enterprises of our town as the deceased. At the time of his death he was Justice of the Peace which office he held for twenty-four successive years, and to which he was chosen, at each ensuing election, by almost unanimous votes of his fellow citizens, even in times when party lines were distinctly marked. The duties of his official position and his extensive private business brought him in contact with all classes of people in the village and surrounding country. Everybody know Mr. Tousey and he knew everybody. Everybody did business with him and felt that he was sensible, clear-headed, honest man and worthy to be confided in. His death has left a void which no one among the living, known to us, is competent to fill." Tousey, Orville (I11161)

He had been ill for some time with a complication of troubles, and has suffered to a great extent from heart difficulty which for a year prevented his lying down. Mr. Sample was a farmer and he was born in a log house on the farm where he died and which his father John Sample bought and cleared when he came into this town early in the last century. Mr. Sample was a man greatly esteemed by his neighbors. He was quiet, unobtrusive, a man of good judgement ad sterling integrity and one in whom his more intimate acquaintances placed the upmost confidence. He once held the office of assessor for three years, the only public office he ever held. For many years he was a member of the Evangelist church but six or seven years ago he and his wife united with the M.E. church. His wife, who was Miss Angeline Hartman, daughter of the late Henry Hartman of Sandy Hill, survives him together with an only daughter, Mrs. Norman Knights. He also leaves a brother, John Sample of Ossian, and two sisters, Mrs. J. T. Kuhn of Sparta and Mrs. M.V. Hotelling of Ossian.

The first of this family in Allegany was Joshua Vincent, who, in 1808,
brought his family from Petersburg in Rensselaer Co., and, as an early
settler. made a permanent home in Almond and Alfred among the Seventh
Day " people, in whose religious faith he joined. He had a taste for
mechanics and operated a carding mill a short distance below Baker's
Bridge." He had two sons, David and Joshua, of whom David came when
but a child from Petersburg to Almond alone on horseback. From
thenceforth he lived in Almond, was for years a confidential employee
of Hon. Clark Crandall. and died, when 68. on the farm his labor had
developed from the wild land that he located. His wife survived him
only from November to February. He married Freegift, daughter of
Christopher and Lois (Coon) Saunders. Their children were Christopher.

Benjamin Morrill Vincent was born on the family homestead in Almond, Dec. 16, 1831. Until he came of age his life was passed in farm labor and in attendance at the common schools. After he became a voter he worked one year by the month," then, March 30, 1854, married Sarah, daughter of Jesse and Angelina (Sims) Ferrin, whose father was a native of Grafton Co., New Hampshire. Mr. and Mrs. Vincent resided in Almond until in the fall of 1857, he purchased the sixty-five acres on lot 1 in Scio, which has since been their permanent home. Removing thither Jan. 7, 1858, they here made the nucleus of the present holdings. The small acreage first purchased here by diligence, industry, thrift and business acumen was increased to 225 acres in the home lot, while Mr. Vincent. at his death. February 13, 1896, owned 2,765 acres in this state, Michigan and Kansas, 200 acres of which are in the Allegany oil field. Mr. Vincent's diligence, thrift and practical common sense were active factors in transforming the forest wilds into well tilled fields. He enjoyed the quiet. rural pioneer life, and it is to be noted that his love of home and its surroundings was a large element in his generous nature, he finding his keenest enjoyment in the home atmosphere, surrounded by his little family, and in the entertainment of his many friends. In 1883 oil was found on his land, and from the royalty derived from the numerous wells drilled on his property he acquired bountiful wealth. But its acquisition never changed the unpretentious nature of the man, nor chilled his sympathy with all forms of distress or suffering. He remained through life the same loyal friend, devoted husband, loving father and exemplary citizen. He was a Republican from 1856 and an adherent to the religion of his fathers. He was not desirous of nor called to prominent official places, but in the positions of trust and influence held in the town where` he lived and died he earned the good opinion of all. Such a life, simple and un eventful as it may appear to he. has a value not easily measured. Two children claim this honored couple as 'parents. Charles F. (See Courts and Lawyers), and James Albert, who married Myrtie, daughter of Oliver Norton. has one child, resides in Allentown and is an oil operator.

We published last week a brief notice of the death of Mrs. Mathias Kershner and we give this week the following communication: The wife of Mathias Kershner was a most estimable lady and forty-four years of age. She had been failing in health for nearly a year, and during the past four or five weeks endured constant physical suffering, from which death released her on Monday last. She has been a true wife and faithful mother. Her many excellent qualities have gained her many friends, as was shown by the large concourse of people who gathered to pay their last respects to the deceased. Her last words were addressed to her husband and she expired with a smile upon her lips.
She has borne the heat and the burden, The toils and cares of the day. Her hope was anchored on Jesus, She smiled and passed away. The wife, the mother the loved one, Has answered the death angel s call, But she'll live In our hearts, aye live, Till upon us the death warrant shall fall.

A New England Veteran Those who witnessed the formation of New England Hardware Dealers Association or assisted therein recall the effective earnest work done by George W Burditt who was president of the organization in 1900 and 1901. He lived to a good old age having been born in 1839 and recently passed away at his home in Cambridge Massachusetts. Mr Burditt was a native of Boston and began his hardware career in the store of MC Warren on Dock Square. He sailed the seas for a time and when the call came for soldiers in 1861 promptly offered his services to his country. In 1866 he re-entered the hardware business as a member of the firm of Farrington & Burditt at Holyoke Mass and after a time continued it under his own name. At the time of his death he had practically retired from active business
