Son of Enos JEWELL and Caroline VAN SICKLEN.

Brooklyn Daily Eagle, 7 March 1905


Many Old-Time Friends of East New York's Foremost Citizen Attend Services Over His Remains.

Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon over the remains of the late Ditmas Jewell, in the East New York Reformed Church, New Jersey avenue, near Fulton street. The church was visited by over four hundred friends of the man, who had been the most ardent worker for the welfare of this church. They passed before the open casket, to view for the last time the face of East New York's foremost citizen.

The pastor of the church, the Rev. Floyd Cornish, could hardly refrain from tears when, at the conclusion of the services, he spoke of the deceased. "We have lost a treasure," he said; "one of the stars that made our pathway bright but that will now be placed among the many shining down radiance on the throne of the Creator."

After all had viewed the remains the casket was carried to the hearse by the elders of the church. Mr. Jewell's two children, John V. Jewell, president of the Twenty-sixth Ward Bank, and Mrs. C. North, came next, followed by his many grandchildren. The interment was in the family plot in the Evergreens Cemetery.

Nearly every business man of the Twenty-sixth Ward paid tribute to the deceased and attended the funeral services. Resolutions were adopted by a number of societies of which he was a member.
