HANYEN, C. B.
 In the death of C. B. Hanyen, Rutland has lost one of its oldest and best known citizens.  For two years Mr. Hanyen had been suffering from heart trouble, but at no time had he been confined to his bed.  While it was known that his ailment was serious, yet the announcement of his death came as a shock to his many friends.  A man of sterling principles, upright and honorable in all of the walks of life, and with a quiet, underlying spirit of benevolence and charity, he will be greatly missed by those who have so long known him.  Mr. Hanyen was born in Ellenville, NY., on December 8, 1834, and was the youngest child of William H. and Abigail Weeks Hanyen.  His early life was spent at home, where he attended school at Ellenville Academy, later graduating from Lowell College, Binghamton, NY.  For three years he was a building contractor in Illinois, coming east at the time of the sinking of the “Central America,” when his brother, who was returning from California, went down with this ill-fated ship.  Mr. Hanyen entered the mercantile business in 1860, and had followed it continuously until the time of his death.  He was a member of the M. E. church, and had served as steward and trustee, and was for many years superintendent of the Sunday school.  In politics, Mr. Hanyen was a Republican, and had held the offices of school director and justice of the peace.  He was appointed postmaster at Rutland, and had acted in that capacity for nearly twenty-five years.  He was a member of the I. O. O. F., and also was a thirty-second degree Mason.  On February 18, 1863, he was united in marriage to Jennie E. Reynolds, and is survived by her, and the following children:  Attorney Fred C. Hanyen, Scranton, Pa.; Prof. C. B. Hanyen, Jr., Wilkes Barre, Pa.; Miss M. Louise Hanyen, Elmira, NY.; Mrs. L. M. Palmer, Mansfield, Pa.    The funeral services were held at the home on Thursday morning at 10 o’clock, and were in charge of the Rev. I. T. Johnson, pastor of the Rutland M. E. church, assisted by the Rev. Seymour Barrett, pastor of the Judson Baptist church, and the Rev. R. DeWitt Stanldy, pastor of the Mansfield M. E. church.  A beautiful prayer of consolation was offered by Mr. Stanley, and brief remarks were made by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Barrett.  At the conclusion of the service, Mr. Johnson read the poem, “Rock of Ages, Cleft For Me.”  About the casket were many floral offerings, which attested the love and esteem of many friends.  The burial was in the family plot in beautiful Woodlawn cemetery, Elmira, NY., and the service was in charge of the Rev. A. J. Saxe, pastor of the First M. E. church of that city.  The pall-bearers were William H. Hatfield, Anthony Benson, Lafayette E. Stevens, Lorenzo W. McClure, John H. Frost, Judson Seeley.
