"Rev. Haskell Byron Benedict, a native of Schenevus, and for the past 12 years pastor of the First Methodist church of Montrose, Pa., died at his home in that city Monday morning at 5 o'clock. Death was caused by a stoppage of circulation in one of his legs which a recent operation had failed to remedy. Mr. Benedict was born in Schenevus in 1858, and his family removing to Albany three years later, he received his early education in the public schools of that city. In 1883 he married Rebecca Van Zandt of Schenevus. During his career as minister he served the following appointments: 1886, Laurens and Oneonta Plains; 1887-90, Sidney; 1891, Hampton street, Scranton; 1892-93, Otego; 1894-95, Worcester; 1896-97, Unadilla; 1898-1901, Montrose; 1902-3, Owego; 1904-1912, Montrose. Mr. Benedict was a thorough student and lover of his work. He was a writer of poetry and contributed many verses under the caption of Good Cheer to church and vicinity papers. He also gained a reputation as a lecturer. He is survived by his wife and one daughter, Bertha." [The Otsego Farmer & Republican (Cooperstown, NY), Mar. 15, 1912]
