The following obituary written by Eld. J. H. McChes-
ney, was clipped from one of the daily papers: —

"Hoskins: At the residence of his son Milard, in the town of Chester,
Cyrenus P. Hoskins, May 9th, 1900, about one o'clock P. M., after a so-
journ on earth of 80 years, 2 months and 21 days, of old age and its growing
infirmities.

"Deceased was born in the State of New York, where he was married
to Miss Sophia J. Bortles.

" Early in the lifties he settled in what is now called the town of Lincoln,
where most of his children were born.

"Two of his sons served in the Union Army in the War of the Rebellion.
The remains of his wife and two children rest in the burying ground in the
above town, where his body was laid at rest by the side of his companion.
He was widely known and favorably so, throughout our county, having
held many offices and discharged his duty faithfully. The religious element
in him was but small; critical in observation of things, yet always in search
of truth, both theoretical and practical, which he claimed to have found in
the man, Christ Jesus.

"He passed away in full immortality, with a childlike, loving heart
towards God and man, bidding the world goodby with sincere desire for its
progress, future peace and happiness. He requested that little should be
said of himself, — but wherein this short memorial fails to do him justice,
the remembrance of his friends will compensate. "

Mr. Emmons as a prominent Republican, has exercised
a controlling influence over the political field of his native
town of Cicero for many years, and through him, as much as
any other, has it been classed as the banner town of repub-
licanism in the county of Onondaga. Although he has
never held a town office, his party has not been unmindful
of his eff"orts in its behalf, and have conferred upon him
such party gifts as he would accept.

He was appointed Janitor of the Court House and Jail
in 1861; a position which he held for eighteen years. Has
also held the office of a Deputy Sheriff under Sheriffs Byron
D. Benson, Jared C. Williams, Dewitt C. Toll, Wm. Evans,
David S. Cossitt, John J. Meldram, and Hector B. Johnson.

He has several farms, and owns real estate in the City
of Syracuse, N. Y., and in Washington, D. C. In appear-
ance at the present time, he is as hale and hearty, as though
he were only fifty, instead of seventy-seven years of age.

L-illie Jane Hays, b. Savannah, O., 10 April, 1856; res.
Denver, Col.

Elmer's father having purchased the old homestead
of his grandfather Jonathan in Lafayette, Onondaga Co.,
N. Y., it became his home from the age of three to sixteen.
His education to this time was obtained at the old brown
school house in the corner of Squire Hoyt's orchard a mile
away. His father then removed to Onondaga Valley, that

At the age of nineteen, he with eighteen other young
men of the Valley, enlisted in a company recruited mostly
from students of the State Normal School at Albany, of
which Consider H. Willett, a fellow student was 1st Sergt.
Later, they were enrolled as Co. E. 44th Regt. N. Y. Inf.
Vols., of Butterfield's Brigade, 5th Army Corps.

The company joined the regiment shortly after the
battle of Antietam, and near where it was fought. After
