JUDD, W. J. Obituary

The Rev. W. J. Judd, nearly fifty years a member of the Wyoming Conference, passed to his Heavenly home December 30, 1906, just forty-one years, to a day, after his much loved mother left this world. For several years he had been living at Marlboro, N. J., where he died suddenly from an apoplectic stroke. After appropriate services in the home, his remains were taken to Candor, NY, and funeral services were held with the church which sent him out to preach so long ago. These services were in charge of Rev. H. H. Dresser, of Owego district, who preached a fine sermon and was followed by Rev. O. M. Martin, who was an early friend of Mr. Judd and who made a very comforting address, following the timely personal remarks of the presiding elder. He was buried beside his mother, there to await the final "resurrection of the just." For the tender sympathy and ministration of friends the family are most grateful.

RUMSEY, Henry H., Obituary

Henry Harrison Rumsey died of pulmonary tuberculosis at his home in Trumansburg, N.Y., March 12, 1907. He was born in Bradford, Steuben county, N.Y., October 22d, 1840, the son of Ebenezer and Chloe De Bois Rumsey. He was converted in early life at a revival meeting held in the village of Millport, Chemung county, and ever after maintained an active relation to the Church of Christ. August 22, 1862, he enlisted in the 126th Infantry Regiment of N.Y. Volunteers, and served till the close of the war. He participated in two of the most hotly contested battles, those of Harper's Ferry and Gettysburg, in the latter of which he was seriously wounded, an event that detained him in the hospital for some months, after which his time was divided between hospital duty and service in the field. His religious character was maintained throughout the war, his army tent being a frequent place for the public worship of God. The war being closed, in the fall of 1865, he came to Trumansburg to reside, and having immediately identified himself with the church, and the worth of his Christian character having been recognized by the pastor, the Rev. Thomas Stacey, he was within a few week elected to the office of steward. From that time he never ceased to be an officer of the church in some form, and often held two or three offices. He was ready for church duty of any kind, and always did well whatever taskes he undertook. He never sought office in the church, but if it came to him he regarded it of too sacred importance to be declined, and modestly assumed its duties. January 4th, 1870, he was united in marriage to an estimable Christian lady, Miss Florence E. Waring, at Trumansburg. The home of his wife's mother, where they were married, had been the home of her mother and now became his home, and there his widow continues to reside. Six children were born to Brother and Sister Rumsey: Lufanny, Hanford, Lula, Anna, Edith, and Edna. Those who survive are: Lufanny (Mrs. Sibley Converse), of Clifton Springs, N.Y., Lula (Mrs. Donald McLeod), of Potsdam, N.Y., and Miss Edna, at the parental home with her mother - all devoted disciples of Christ. Brother Rumsey's home as pre-eminently a Christian home. He possessed a notable Christian character. His example was earnest and constantly Christian. His spirit was humble, devout, reverent, gentle, loving. He was ever patient, forbearing, self-sacrificing, self-controlling. He was noted for consistency, fidelity, brotherly-kindness. The memory of his moral and Christian virtues will long be affectionately cherished by the good people of Trumansburg. J. H. Rogers.
