Pvt. MD Co 308th Inf. Veteran WW I


Last Tributes and Military Honors were paid Sunday afternoon to Jacob Hermanet, World War soldier, who died of pneumonia in a hospital in France, October 13, 1918, at the age of 27 years.

Jacob Hermanet was the son of the late Abraham and Cynthia Hermanet. His father died nine years ago. His mother lived in this town and it was when everyone was rejoicing over news of the armistice that she received word of the death of her son.

Jacob Hermanet was the only boy Marion lost in the great war. He was with the 308th Machine Gun Battalion. The body arrived in Marion at 6 o'clock Saturday evening, and was taken to the home of his brother, John Hermanet. Funeral Services were held in the Second Reformed Church,and were very largely attended. Rev. DeKoster, pastor of the East Williamson Reformed Church delivered an impressive sermon and offered prayer. Rev. G. E. Finlay of Canandaigua, read the scripture. The service flag of the Second Reformed Church, containing seven blue and one gold star draped the pulpit. Selections were sung by a quartette, Mrs. M. A. Brewster, Mrs. S. B. Curtis, Messrs. Arthur F. Jeffry and
Clifford Topping, accompanied by Miss Marjorie Casterton.

Beautiful Floral tributes covered the flag draped casket, which were borne by six World War veterans: Dr. Arthur Bessemer, Milo Morrison, Herbert White, Stanley Whiting,
Fred Cattieu and Richard Fleck. A large company gathered in Marion cemetery for the burial services at the family lot.
