CHARLES E. HADCOCK
Death of the Treasurer of the Agricultural Society – A Wisely ? and Popular Man
Charles E. Hadcock, treasure of the Jefferson County Agricultural society and one of the best known and most progressive farmers in Jefferson county, died about 1 this afternoon at his home in the town of Rutland. Mr. Hadcock had suffered for nearly six months from an infection of the kidneys akin to Bright's disease, and his physician had informed his family that it was highly improbable that he could recover. He had been confined to his home, however, only about three or four weeks, and yesterday seemed to be much improved. Several of his friends visited him at his home, and he seemed strong and hopeful and said he hoped to be out in a few days. The unexpected announcement of his death this afternoon came as a surprise and a shock to his many friends.
Mr. Hadcock, who was 52 years of age, was born in the town of Harrisburg, Lewis County, and was educated in the district schools and at the Lowville academy in that county. For some years he taught school in Leis and Jefferson counties. Aside from that his occupation has always been that of a farmer.
For 15 years or more Mr. Hadcock had been connected with and deeply interested in the Jefferson County Agricultural society, and about five years ago was elected treasurer of the society, a position that he held at the time his death. His loss will be keenly felt by the society, as he had fulfilled the duties of his office with conscience ability and was one of the most progressive and enterprising members of the board of managers.
Mr. Hadcock naturally came into contact with many people in the course of his official duties and probably had as many friends as most any man in the county. He combines a strict ideal of his duties with a most winning personality and he was held in the highest regard in the wide circle of his acquaintance. The people of his town had the greatest confidence in his judgment and integrity, and he was always consulted in matters of public interest and welfare. Mr. Hadcock married in 1874 Miss Carrie Olney of Rutland, a daughter of L. D. Olney of this city and a sister of Miss Channes Olney, the well-known actress. He is survived by his wife, one daughter, Miss Grace Hadcock, who until recently was connected with the Watertown post office, one brother, Fred Hadcock of Columbus, O., and two sisters, Mrs. Charles E. Burnham of the town of Rutland, and Mrs. Frank Deane of Columbus, O.
Mr. Hadcock had been justice of the peace of his town for a number of years and held that office at the time of his death. He was a Mason, a member of Watertown grange and the Jefferson County Pomona grange.
