One Of Area's Oldest Residents; Among Oldest Deputy Sheriffs in Schenectady Co.

QUAKER STREET, July 12—Chas. E Hoag, 85, one of the oldest deputy sheriffs in Schenectady county, and one of the oldest residents of Quaker Street, died early Sunday at his home here after an illness of six months.

Descendent of Quaker stock, a group for which the village of Quaker Street was named, Mr. Hoag was born in the Town of Duanesburgh, on June 12, 1854, son of the late Martin E and Irene Barton Hoag. He moved to this village about 65 years ago. His wife, the former Augusta A Wilber, to whom he was married in 1877, died eight years ago.

For many years Mr. Hoag served as attendance officer for Town of Duanesburgh schools, and resigned only this year due to his health. He was also a former superintendent of the Grove cemetery association of Quaker Street.

Few Years in South
Mr. Hoag spent practically his entire life in this area, with the exception of four years in Birmingham, Alabama, where he was a salesman for a machinery company. This was a trade he followed for 44 years.

He was one of the few remaining men of the section who remembered the construction of the Albany and Susquehana Railroad through Delanson in 1863.

Last in Family
Last in a family of four, Mr. Hoag is survived by one son, Chester A. Hoag, of this village; two grandsons, Charles Hoag of Poughkeepsie and Robert Hoag, of Quaker Street; one granddaughter, Miss Margaret Hoag, of Poughkeepsie.

Private funeral services were conducted from the late home Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock. Rev. John J. Prudom, pastor of the Delanson M.E. church, officiated. Burial was in the Grove cemetery here.
