Daniel L. Jenness, who died August 20, 1909, with jaundice and bilious fever, was born in Chichester, N. H., May 27, 1836, and came to Holland when 16 years of age. With his father he bought the farm ever after known as the David Jenness farm, now owned by A. R. Hall, and had lived in Holland 57 years. He was a member of the Methodist church and a constant attendant until old age came upon him. He was choirister of the Methodist church over 30 years and did all he could to help the young singers, having taught several terms of singing school. In 1859 he married Chestina E. Colburn of Charleston; to then five children were born; Frank, of Holland, Ida, who died when 26 years of age, one boy who died in infancy, Burt, of Lowell, Mass., and George, who lived with his father. Mrs. Jenness died in 1885 and in 1888 Mr. Jenness married Maria Ewens, who survives him. He was a man always pleasant in his family and with his neighbors, was liked by all who knew him, and thus it can truthfully be said a good man hath gone from our midst. He leaves to mourn his loss, a wife, three sons, four grandchildren and two aged sisters. The family have the sympathy all their friends.
