Harvey S. Jaques was born Sept. 5, 1834, near Millville, Butler County, Ohio, here he spent his early childhood. He was the oldest of 12 children of Richard and Mary Jaques. Four brothers, John Louis, Daniel, and James and one sister Mrs. Ella Long survive him. His ancestors came from New Jersey.

At the age of 13 his family settled near Sharptown, Franklin County. Here he grew to man- hood and became one of the sturdy citizens of his community. He had the pleasure of sitting at the feet of Prof. Chase at Mt. Carmel and Brookville College. The inspirations and ideals of this man became a part of his life. He learned to believe in the curse of ignorance, in the efficacy of schools in the joy of serving others, in the beauty in home, in daily life and out of doors, in laughter, in love in faith, in all ideals and distant hopes that lure us on; that every hour of every day he received a just reward for all he was and all he did, in the present and its opportunities, in the future and its promises, and in the divine, joy of living.

For several years he taught school in Franklin County. Many of his students have become staunch citizens of the county. These will attest to the seriousness earnestness, uprightness, and his demand for orderly conduct. He chose for his life companion Martha Stout, the daughter of Ira and Eliza Stout. To them were born eight children. the two oldest John and Jenny died in infancy. His wife and the remaining children, Lyde, Bert, Rose, Edna, Lenore, Fred and ten grandchildren mourn his loss. In his home life he was a devoted, conscientious and ideal husband and father. His family’s welfare was his.

For forty-five years he conducted the store at Whitcomb. As a business man he was the symbol of honesty and fair dealings with all men. He lived the principle embodied in the Golden Rule. His life practically ended in the store for there the beginning of his final illness took place.

About forty years ago he united with the M E Church of Whitcomb. As a member of this church his services are well known.

As a citizen and neighbor he was respected and honored. A type of citizen that the community needs but cannot hope to retain. On May 17, 1912, after a short illness, his life ended at the age of 77 years, 8 months and 12 days. He could truly have said with Paul:- “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the father; henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness which the Lord the righteous judge, shall give me at that day, and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.”

CARD OF THANKS.

We desire to thank our neighbors and friends for their many acts of kindness rendered and expressions of sympathy uttered in our recent bereavement

Mrs. H. S. Jaques and family.

DATE PRIOR TO 1850.
____________

Whitcomb BurialsTHE OLD BURIAL FIELD.

The founders of the town, and their descendants during the 17th century at least, buried their dead without formal services—foll0wing the custom of the Puritans in England-—and perhaps a plot of ground for the family graves was sometimes selected within the home lot or orchard. Early in the present century ancient graves were visible near the sites of both the Roper and the Prescott garrisons. But in the infancy of the Nashaway Plantation, land adjoining the meeting-house site was set apart for common use as a “burying place.” The practice of marking graves by incribed headstones probably did not begin until after the resettlement, one apparent exception being that of Mrs. Dorothy Prescott, who died in I674. The oldest date now to be found is that over the grave of the first ]ohn Houghton—I684. For half a century all memorial stones were but fragments of slate riven from some ledge, or rough granite slabs, upon which unskilled hands rudely incised name and date,—the latter being often upon a foot-stone or on the back of the head-stone. Many of the older inscriptions are illegible to most eyes. In his History of Lancaster, Reverend A. P. Marvin has given a plan of this ancient burial place, upon which the marked graves are located and numbered, and has added literal copies of the epitaphs. In the following carefully revised list of inscriptions the same numbering is adopted. Their arrangement is indicated by division lines. Numbers omitted are of stones not lettered, or of misplaced foot-stones found to belong with other numbers.
