'Mr. West Almond' remembered - Chester Gosper left a legacy of
dedication
WEST ALMOND - Former town highway supervisor Leonard Watson said there
was one way to describe Chester "Chet" Gosper, the recently-deceased
former highway superintendent - Mr. West Almond.
That distinction was one of many glowing ways West Almond residents
described Gosper, who served as highway superintendent from 1958-90.
Gosper, who was born on Tuttle Road Jan. 24, 1928, died Monday at his
Turnpike Road home, leaving behind many accomplishments. He served in
the U.S. Army during World War II and worked at the Erie Railroad and
a dairy farm from 1949-58, before beginning a long career as town
highway superintendent.
Those who knew him say honesty and humor were his greatest traits.
Gosper's wife of nearly 57 years, Eleanor Gosper, said West Almond was
"Chet's town."
"He was the most honest, truthful person in town," Gosper said
Wednesday. "He was just a remarkable person. He never wanted to rile
people up. Just simply a great husband, father, grandfather and
great-grandfather. He was very loving of everyone."
The Gospers were married Feb. 10, 1948 in town hall and would go on to
have four children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
Leonard Watson, a former town board member, began a renovation project
this summer in Gosper's name on the 151-year-old former Methodist
Church and grange on County Route 2 with the help of a large donation
by resident Bruce Hitchcock. His decision came after Gosper had been
diagnosed with diabetes and had both of his legs amputated. Watson
said working with Gosper in the past had been a pleasure.
"Chet would spend many hours sitting in on town board meetings,"
Watson said. "He was so nervous about how people felt and thinking of
ways he could better help the residents. He knew what everyone was
thinking, and was so concerned about the taxpayers. Also, he never
bought or did anything without the board's approval. He was
conservative in his proposals and didn't waste anything ... He was Mr.
West Almond."
Eleanor Gosper said her husband always asked to be taken on his
wheelchair to see the community center with his name on it, and said
he was thrilled with Watson's idea to go through with the renovation
in his honor. She said her late husband took the town highway
superintendent job in 1958 when the old superintendent became ill.
"He wanted to take the challenge," Gosper said. "At the time, the town
wasn't in that great of shape but he helped change it around. He
really enjoyed his work. Years ago, during a large blizzard, he helped
open a road to Angelica, which he was very proud of. He enjoyed
plowing snow and other duties of his job. He took the current highway
superintendent (Mike Sherman) under his wing when he worked there and
helped him."
Gosper's grandson, Chester Gosper IV, said his memories of his
grandfather were and always will be warm and caring.
"He was so honest and humorous," said Gosper, a director at Brown &
Powers Funeral Home in Hornell, Canisteo and Angelica. "Everyone just
loved him. He always had a lot to tell me in his later years and I
liked to listen. Even when he lost his legs, he never blamed it on
anyone, which is amazing because he was always a person who did
everything for other people. He never once lost his sense of humor or
personality."
Don Hoffman, the town supervisor, said Gosper suggested he get
involved with the town board back in 1985, before becoming supervisor
in 1989.
"He'd been a fixture in West Almond," Hoffman said. "He was a great
guy and was here as long as I can remember. He was well-liked and
respected by many people."
In addition to being town highway superintendent, Gosper's wife said
he was an active member of the Allegany Highway Superintendents
Association and lifelong member of the Almond Rod and Gun Club. He was
also an avid hunter and enjoyed barbecues and holidays, especially
Christmas, said Eleanor Gosper. She said Gosper had attended
Alfred-Almond School until he reached the ninth grade, and said the
two had met when she grew up on nearby Jersey Hill Road and they would
go sliding down snow hills on sleds as teenagers.

In 1794 (Livingston County History) he apparently came with his son-in-law to Geneseo (then Ontario County, New York) making the journey in wagons. At this time Geneseo was a wilderness with only a few white settlers. He selected a tract of land near the village known as Lakeville, and assisted in organizing the First Presbyterian church in the town of Geneseo, of which he was appointed one of the Elders. He resided near Lakeville but a few years, then sold his land and bought for four dollars a tract of 100 acres in the southern part of the town. A hewed log house and a few acres of cleared land constituted his available estate. Here he resided till his death in about 1812. A few years before his death, John's younger brother, George, and his family came to Groveland.

(NOTE: the numbers appear to be off by one column - if so it should be - 1 male 26-44(Samuel), 1 male 45+(John), 1 female 26-44(?) --- this leaves open that Mary may not have come to Geneseo and is buried in PA and the female 26-44 is a daughter of John or second wife) ...living next to Benjamin Squires, Thomas Austin, John Hutchin (only 48 heads of household in the town of Geneseo in 1800)

The Ewart's grave is located in Temple Hill Cemetery, next to the main road(Rte 20), a large white marble marker has the insrciption of his son Samuel, and next to this are two illegable markers, believed to be that of John and his wife. His son Samuel and his family has another monument in the center of the cemetery - most likely were Samuel is actually buried (or moved from his orginal location).

  • A farmer from Howard was driving down Main Street[Hornell] yesterday afternoon behind a pair of spirited horses, when the animals took fright near the furniture factory and started on a brisk run. It was impossible to hold them and they ran across the bridge at high speed. In turning after crossing the bridge they upset the wagon and threw the man out. His head struck
    on a stone cutting a bad gash in his forehead. The team came to a stand still near the harness shop. Dr. Parkhill dressed the man's wound and he was soon able to proceed on his way home with a borrowed wagon, his own having been wrecked. The farmer's name was Joel Russell, somewhat advanced in years. He is not considered seriously injured."

    6330 When the first Verveelen, young Daniel born in Amsterdam in 1635,
    arrived in New Netherland in 1652, he came with Gideon and Agnietje
    Moens (Moriaens) Schaets. And, he subsequently married their daughter,
    Alida (Aletta). Gideon Schaets was a minister (Dominie) in the Dutch
    Reformed Church, as had been his father. He had also been a
    schoolmaster and tutor at The Hague and at Brielle in the Netherlands.
    Agnietje was a governess whose family had previously been in the
    service of the Dukes of Burgundy for generations and were high
    government officials at The Hague.
    The Schaets name is derived from the Norse word "skeatse"
    meaning warior or sharp-shooter. The Schaets and Moens families, both
    of Viking descent and long allied, settled prior to 1400 in the
    Netherlands city of Tongeren, on the Meuse River, now part of Belgium.
    It was an area of Germanic tribes that early on resisted the incursion
    of the Romans.
    Daniel, son of Johannes and Anna Verveelen, and then still a boy of
    seventeen years, arrived in New Netherland in 1652, traveling in the
    care of Dominie (The Reverend) Gideon and Agnietje Schaets. The
    Dominie had received a call to become the second pastor of the Dutch
    Reformed Church at Albany, known at the time as Beverwyck.
    Daniel at first became a trader in New Amsterdam and Beverwyck.
    About 1661, he married Aletta Schaets, daughter of the Dominie and
    Agnietje Schaets, settled in New Amsterdam, and joined his father in
    the Red Lion Brewery. He later also succeeded his father as
    ferrymaster in Harlem. He and Aletta moved about, living as well for a
    while in New Utrecht in what is now Brooklyn, New York, and finally
    across the Hudson River to Hackensack, New Jersey. Over the years,
    they raised seven children. Although the surnames changed with time
    (e.g., Ver Valen, Van Valen, and Van Valer), their descendants are now
    widely scattered across the nation from New York to Hawaii.
    The Dominie's grandmother was Janne Schagen, a descendant of the
    minor noble house of Schagen in North Holland. The first Lord Van
    Schagen (died 1473) is believed to have been the brother of William
    VI, Count of Holland, and the illegitimate son of Duke Albrecht of
    Bavaria, who presented the Schagen family with a coat of arms.

    Arkansas. He move with his parents in 1933, to Hale, Missouri, when
    his father joined Wiley's Grandfather in a trucking business. In
    1941, the family moved to Taft, California, where Wiley graduated from
    High School, in 1948, and shortly thereafter joined the Marines.
    Wiley was sent to Korea, and participated in the "Police Action,"
    where he was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received during the
    conflict. According to a story related to Russell N. Haynes, Wiley's
    cousin, by his father William Everest Haynes, only a few days after
    the end of hostilities in 1953, Wiley was riding on the front fender
    of a military truck. The truck hit and exploded a land mine that was
    buried in the road. Wiley was blown into a rice paddy, and was nearly
    left behind, except that someone sighted his mangled body, half
    submurged in the paddy. Wiley suffered a great deal from his wounds,
    and after months of recoperation in hospitals, finally, he was ready
    to return to civilian live. He carried the affects of these injuries
    the rest of his live. Wiley had the distinctive honor of being the
    first of the Haynes lineage to be wounded in battle since the
    Revolutionary War. While Wiley was in the Marines, he married Rhoda
    Mae Penticoff (Penny) in 1950, at Hawthorn, Nevada. They had two
    children, Kenneth Doyle, born May 20, 1951, and Carrol, born July 25,
    1952. Wiley and Penny were divorced in 1958. After Wiley returned
    from the Koren Way, he was employed by the Pioneer Chevrolet
    Dealership in Taft, California, were he was quite successful, and
    considered one of their top salemen. In 1972, Wiley was employed by
    the G&W Chrvrolet Dealership in Porterville, California as a saleman.
    Later, he entered the Real Estate business in Camp Nelson, California.
    Wiley married the second time to Virginia June Saunders, in Taft,
    California, the date is unknown.

    6341 WILIMINGTON, N.C. - Shirley Marie Herington passed away peacefully on Jan. 25, 2006.

    Shirley was born in Dansville on May 6, 1945, the seventh child of Charles and Irene Perry, who predeceased her.

    Shirley married Roger Allen Herington, her soul mate, in 1965. They enjoyed 41 years of loving marriage and raised three wonderful women: Morella Marie (Michael) Breckenridge, Lorie Ann (Todd) Morgan and Virginia Irene Herington.

    Roger and Shirley proudly guided their daughters through college graduation and on to successful careers, as well as going back to school and obtaining her own college degree. They also enjoyed the pleasure of watching the marriage of their daughters Morella to Michael and Lorie Ann to Todd.

    Morella blessed Shirley and Roger with two beautiful grandchildren, Adam (age 15) and Autumn (age 11). Virginia blessed them with a beautiful granddaughter, Rochell (age 14).

    Shirley is also survived by her deeply loved brothers Gerald (Doris) and Ken (MaryLou) Perry and sisters Dot (Dick Bennett), Eileen (Charlie Wright), Gloria (Dick Kreiley) and Barbara (Nelson Thorpe); Roger's mother Marjorie Herington and sisters Nancy (Lee Durkee), Beverly (Hugh Ross) and Virginia (Harry Tesch) and brother Ernie (Norma); and numerous nieces and nephews.

    Shirley's greatest talents were in bringing joy to the lives of others and sharing her zest for life. She was able to enjoy teaching her grandchildren some of her greatest talents: cooking, sewing, quilting and midnight shopping trips to Wal-Mart.

    In March of 2004, Roger retired after 20 years at General Electric, and he and Shirley set off on their lifetime dream-a tour of the continental United States, Canada and Alaska in their RV. On their journey they took in the beauty of areas of the country they had never before seen; the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, British Columbia, Moab Utah, Arizona, Arkansas and the highlight of their trip, Alaska. They spent the entire summer there. Shirley saw Denali three times during this trip, went whitewater rafting, fishing for salmon, and deep sea fishing. She caught the largest halibut in the picture above.

    Shirley and Roger traveled from the beginning of April to mid-October and their family never saw them happier. During the past year she lived her dream. They returned determined to sell their home and begin their 'nomadic life' of continuing their travels around the U.S., with the plan to return to Alaska in 2007.

    Shirley's death came suddenly; she had been very happy, feeling well, and enjoying an excellent quality of life right up to the end. She went to sleep quietly, peacefully, painlessly and then simply slipped away. Her family's sadness and loss is without bounds, but we are grateful that the Lord took her peacefully and without pain and suffering.

    A service to remember and celebrate the life of Shirley was held at Andrew's Mortuary, 1617 Market Street, Wilmington, N.C., on Sunday, Jan. 29 at 3 p.m. The family received friends and family at 2 p.m., who brought with them their fondest memories of Shirley to share.

    In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Attn: Thanks and Giving, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105. (GCE, February 2, 2006, p4)
