A Patriarch Gone - Mr. Crines Jenkins died at his residence in the town of Gardiner, on Friday, aged eighty-two years.
Mr. Jenkins was one of a generation of which those at present on the stage can have but little knowledge. He had outlived nearly all of the companions with whom he started on the journey of life, though his aged wife still survives. In their home near the banks of the Wallkill a kindly hospitality ever prevailed, and friends from far and near found generous welcome. Although their advancing years were not without trouble, of which all of human kind have their share, yet he continued to fight life's battles with spirit, nor did he lose his interest in the affairs and friends of the present.
Ten years ago next September, the friends from far and near met at the hospitable mansion to celebrate the golden wedding of Mr. Jenkins and wife, and the union in matrimony of their daughter, Miss Hannah Jenkins, with Prof. Thurston. The kindly, genial spirit of the host and hostess shed a warmth around, and seldom is an entertainment so productive of happiness.
Mr. Jenkins' last call at our office was about a year ago, when he brought us some very old papers, from which we made copious extracts. His health had been failing for about six months previous to his decease. He had caught cold and the disease finally became consumption. The funeral was held at the late residence on Sunday. Rev. Messrs. Lasher, of Guilford, Dewitt of Shawangunk, and LeFevre of New Jersey, aided in the service. The number assembled was very large, so that scarcely more than one-half could obtain admission to the house. The remains were interred in the New Paltz Cemetery.
New Paltz Independent August 22, 1878
