James French Dead
Notice is printed elsewhere of the death
of James French, the large real estate holder of Byram township, at
the great age of 92 years. Mr. French was one of the most notable
residents of his township. For years out of mind, his sightly home
to the north of waterloo has been noted by Lackawanna R. R. passengers.
Mr. French was possibly one of the oldest members of the New York
State Historical Society. He had planned to attend the fourteenth
anniversary of the Sussex County Historical Society and the Hill Memorial
Building the present week. He was a great lover of good verse, and
had himself contributed to poetical life some very nicely composed
poems, of which he was very justly proud. His death occurred at Hoboken
and interment was at Philadelphia.
