Vanderhoof, Jacob (13 FEB 1816 - 8 NOV 1915)

Jacob Vanderhoof was born at Boonton, N.J., Feb. 13, 1816, and in 1870 came west and located in Plymouth, Wis., living there about four years, after which he located with his son, Wesley, on a farm in Clark County, Wis., seven miles southwest of this village.

The deceased has been in very good health for many years past, and in spite of his advanced age has managed to walk from one to two miles daily until Monday of this week. On this morning he arose at about six o'clock, as usual, feeling in good spirits, but was taken ill some time during the forepart of the day, from which he did not recover, and at about one o'clock a.m., Thursday he passed to the great beyond to meet his wife, who preceded him in death by about sixteen years.

Ten children, whose names are as follows, are now mourning the loss of their aged father, who was always "true blue" to his family, and carried an overflowing heart of love for all who were near to hims: Wesley and Charles of the town of Sherman; Ward of Loyal, Wis.; Rachel Lang of Merrill; Mrs. Ed Kayhart and Mrs. M. Degrau of the town of Sherman; Mrs. Frank Neil of Duluth; Walter of Fairview, Mont.; Elijah and Mrs. John Gosline of Washington, and one sister living in N.J., 45 grandchildren, 69 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild; besides many other relatives and friends throughout the state.

The funeral was held last Friday from the Wesley Vanderhoof home at two o'clock p.m., Rev. Dix conducted the services, after which the remains of the oldest and one of the most respected residents of central Wis. was laid to rest in peace in the Sherman Cemetery.

The Tribune joins the many friends of the sorrowing ones in extending to them the hand of sympathy in their hour of great sorrow and affliction.
