Century Memorial

The names of those we have lost in 1884 are, in the order of their decease: Edward M. Archibald, B. H. Hutton, John J. Cisco, Augustus Schell, Willard Parker, Joseph S. Bosworth, Augustus E. Silliman, Gouverneur M. Ogden, Freeman J. Fithian, Robert Hoe, Isaac Newton, Frank E. Kernochan, Henry T. Anthony, Francis C. Bowman, Samuel H. Shreve, Benjamin F. Butler, D. Lydig Suydam, Charles Buckingham, and Dr. Noah Hunt Schenck.

It is not by their number alone that these vacant places are conspicuous; for many among them recall the thought of honored character—the associations of dear companionship enjoyed—the memories of faithful service rendered.
