He resided at Williamsville ; d. March 29, 1879. ^^
clip the following tribute to his worth.

LINES COMPOSED IN MEMORY OF L. A. CHENEY.

Another friend has passed away

To mansions of the blest ;
His pain and suffering all is o'er,

He's entered into rest.

His work on earth has been well done,

His labor here is o'er;
His " heavenly race " is now begun

Upon the "shining shore."

The church he loved has lost a light

On which it could depend ;
The Sabbath school has lost a guide,

A counsellor and friend.

God bless his broken hearted wife

And child, to him so dear ;
Though lone and sad will be their life,

For him they've naught to fear.

And while they mourn that one thus loved

Has passed away so soon.
May they with sweet submission say,

" Father thy will be done."

Farewell loved one ! no more on earth

Thy smiling face we'll meet ;
No more we'll hear thy voice in prayer,

Or songs of praise so sweet.

Thou'rt gone to join that heavenly band

In the bright realms above ;

To sing with them in that blest land,

A Saviour's dying love.

Mrs. H. a. W.

May Elwood, at Rochester, N. Y.

George May Elwood is a gentleman who does not find an ac-
tive business life incompatible with the gratification of his literary
and scientific tastes. In the private life of his charming home,
he spends most of his leisure in his library, engaged in hard
study, his predilections being for science and history. He was
one of the early members of the Academy of Sciences, and, as
the result of some of his scientific work, was made, some years
since, a Fellow of the Royal Microscopical Society of Great
Britain, and this year was chosen as the President of the
Rochester Historical Society. He is an enthusiastic collector of
rare and curious books illustrative of the early history of the art
of printing, prints, manuscripts and book plates, being a member
of the Ex-Libris societies of Washington, London, Paris, and
Berlin, and a contributor to their journals. He has also been a
member for many years of the Lotos Club of New York City, as
well as a member of the Genesee Valley Club of Rochester and
the Citizens' Club of Syracuse. In business life, Mr. Elwood has
been always identified with banking and insurance interests.
Born in Rochester August 11, 1844, he was educated there and
at Chicago, where he lived for five years, and prepared to enter
Harvard; but, on the death of his father, in 1859, he returned to
Rochester and took a position in the Traders' Bank. He became
a member of a banking and insurance firm in 1869, from which
he retired some years later to become the General Agent and
Adjuster for the Guardian Assurance Company of London.
Prior to the retirement of that company from the United States,
Mr. Elwood received a similar appointment from the Hanover
Fire Insurance Company of New York City, which position he



i38 WILLIAM; EIGHTH GENERATION.

has held for many years, continuing to reside in Rochester. Mr.
Elwood has an interesting pedigree. He is descended on his
paternal side from a family of English pioneers, who bought
lands and were among the earliest settlers of the Mohawk Valley,
his great grandfather, with two brothers, having taken part in
the bloody battle of Oriskany ; and also from the Bushnells and
Fitches of Connecticut. On his maternal side he is descended
from Captain John May, who commanded the ship Jafnes, and
settled in Boston in the early days of the Old Colony — 1640.
He is also descended from Christopher Wadsworth and James
Lindall, who were members of Capt. Miles Standish's Ply-
mouth Company as well as from Capt. Samuel Wadsworth, who
commanded and was killed at the famous Sudbury fight in April,
1676, and also from the AUises, Waites, Dickinsons, Stebbins,
and Sheldons, names familiar in the Colonial history of Mas-
sachusetts. Mr. Elwood is the Local Secretary of the Society
OF Colonial Wars and a member of the Colonial Order. In
1882 he married Mary Louise Cheney, who is also descended from
old Puritan and Pilgrim New England stock, a direct descendant
from Governor Bradford, John Alden and Priscilla Mullins, the
Cheneys, Holbrooks, Peabodys, Buckinghams, and allied families,
and who is a member of the Daughters of the American
Revolution, Colonial Dames and Mayflower Society,
as well as being the organizer and President of one of the first
Chapters of the Children of the American Revolution.
