Jacob Hermanet


Last Tributes and Military Honors were paid

Sunday afternoon to Jacob Hermanet,

World War soldier,

who died of pneumonia in a hospital in France,

 October 13, 1918, at the age of 27 years.


Jacob Hermanet was the son of the late

Abraham and Cynthia Hermanet.

His father died nine years ago.

His mother lived in this town

and it was when everyone was

rejoicing over news of the armistice

 that she received word of the death of her son.


Jacob Hermanet was the only boy Marion

lost in the great war.

He was with the 308th Machine Gun Battalion.

The body arrived in Marion at 6 o'clock Saturday evening,

and was taken  to the home of his brother, John Hermanet.


Funeral Services were held in the Second Reformed Church,

and were very largely attended.

Rev. DeKoster, pastor of the East Williamson

Reformed Church delivered an impressive

 sermon and offered prayer.

Rev. G. E. Finlay of Canandaigua, read the scripture.


The service flag of the Second Reformed Church,

containing seven blue and one gold star draped the pulpit.

Selections were sung by a quartette, Mrs. M. A. Brewster,

 Mrs. S. B. Curtis, Messrs. Arthur F. Jeffry and

Clifford Topping, accompanied by Miss Marjorie Casterton.

Beautiful Floral tributes covered the flag draped casket, which

were borne by six World War veterans: Dr. Arthur Bessemer,

Milo Morrison, Herbert White, Stanley Whiting,

 Fred Cattieu and Richard Fleck.

 A large company gathered in Marion cemetery

 for the burial services in the family lot.
