    2. [S84] Obituaries and Death Notices (Reliability: 4).

      The Newton Press, January 1894: Vanderhoof, Henry - was born in Stark Co., Ohio, Feb. 22, 1816 and died at his home in Newton, Ill. Jan. 21, 1894, at 11:30 a.m. He was married to Miss Mary Rhodes April 14, 1839, and with her came to Jasper county the same year. To them were born eleven children, eight of whom are living, viz: Geo. V., Richard H. and J. C. Vanderhoof, Newton; Otis D. and N. B. Vanderhoof, Rose Hill; Frank Vanderhoof, Jewett; and Mrs. Mary Martin and Mrs. Sarah Snell, Chicago. Mrs. Vanderhoof died in 1864 and in the following year he married Catharine Jarred, who survives him. One child which died in infancy was born to them. Uncle Henry was a good citizen, prominent in business and as a farmer for 55 years in Jasper county. He was a man of warm, generous impulses, always ready to do whatever he thought would best promote the prosperity of the community in which he lived. During his life time he held several offices of honor and profit and led the forlorn hope of theGreenback and People's party on several occasions. In politics he always took a lively interest, not as a candidate with the prospect of winning at the current election, but with the hope of buildingup a party for the future that could cope with the Democrats and Republicans in national affairs. Failure never daunted him and he was just as zealous six weeks ago when he took sick as when he firststarted out in 1876. For thirty years he was a consistent member of the Presbyterian church. Yesterday morning after services by Rev. J. R. Skinner his remains were laid to rest in the Vanderhoof cemetery, three miles southeast of Newton, whither they were followed by a large circle of friends who wished to testify to the upright character of the deceased.
