This is one of the scrapbooks that inspired me to start the Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. Attributed to Minnie Kenyon, this includes obits from Sullivan, Jackson, and Rutland Townships and the surrounding townships of that area.

These obituaries are presented in scrapbook order. I can't think of a better way of understanding a community than by reading an obituary scrapbook.

HART, ELLEN NICKERSON
 There are times when a life in this community seems to merit words of appreciation for the good it brought along the way—although in a simple, quiet manner—recognized by few people.  Such was the life of Ellen Hart.  From childhood circumstances did not give her a beautiful outlook on the world, yet she possessed a background of family that mush have transmitted to her strength and dignity of character combined with sweetness of soul that made her loved and respected for sixty years.  Thirty-six of these were best with the companionship of a faithful kind, husband.  We recall her great desire to have in her care homeless neglected children and for a period of years three were entrusted to her through County Welfare.  First came Tommy, when nine years old, remaining at the Hart homestead near Lawrence Corners until he was fifteen.  He is a man now and should fulfill the hopes of his kind foster parents, who made great efforts to establish in his character right ideas of heart and mind.  Next came brother and sister—John and Lulu May—pitiably neglected waifs of six and seven years.  Their comfort in this home on Sullivan Street close to campus, schools—together with love and tender care from “Mommie” will always be a happy memory in their lives.  After five years—owing to Ellen’s ill health, they were placed in other good hands.  Giving them up was an experience from which Ellen never fully recovered.  When the doors of her new world open wide we believe she heard the words—“Inasmuch as you have done this unto the least of these you have done it unto me.”  Those who knew of her courage during the last months of her life, with frequent weeks in the hospital—unable to care for her home—her contacts with friends limited to a very few, we marvel at her patience and good cheer—with no word of discontent—nothing but kindness toward all; this with a spirit of Christian charity and no sign of bitterness.  We who understood and loved her for brave acceptance of her place in the world feel that she is a beautiful example of womanhood.  (Line missing) Kindly spoken by our Lord:  “She hath done what she could”  How many of us with rich, full lives, can claim this from Him. G. C. B.

ISZARD, MRS. DELLA YORK
 Mrs. Della York Iszard, 82, of 60 Euclid Ave., died Sunday morning at 5:30 after an extended illness.  She was the widow of Samuel French Iszard, founder of Iszard’s department store, who died Sept. 30, 1945.  Mr. and Mrs. Iszard were married Apr. 7, 1891.  A family reunion in June 1941, marked their golden wedding anniversary.  Both natives of the Philadelphia section they had been sweethearts since meeting at a seaside resort when each was 14.  At the time of their marriage, Mr. Iszard was a traveling salesman for a wholesale dry good company.  Mrs. Iszard later persuaded him to take employment with B. F. D??? Proprietor of a small Philadelphia dry goods specialty store.  Mrs. Iszard was manager of that company in 1904 when he decided to enter business for himself.  He bought the Reynolds Bros. Department store in Elmira which he opened as the S. F. Iszard Co. Inc.  The store was located at Baldwin and E. Water Sts. For 20 years.  In 1923, Mrs. Iszard realized that her judgement as to her husband’s career had been vindicated.  The Iszard company had outgrown its East-side store and on Nov. 23 of that year Mrs. Iszard turned the first shovel of earth at the site of a new store.  A year later the new store was opened at its present location on N. Main St.  Mrs. Iszard also saw two of her children, Harry Y. And Franklin K. Iszard, enter the retail field and become associated with their father in the department store.  The Iszard’s also leave a daughter, Mrs. Muriel Chamouland of Pendle Hill, Wallingford, Pa., five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.  The funeral will be conducted Tuesday at 4 p.m. in the First Presbyterian Church, of which Mrs. Iszard was a member, with the Rev. Martin D. Hardin Jr. Officiating.  The department store will be closed all day Tuesday in Mrs. Iszard’s memory.  In a quiet way, Mrs. Iszard carried on a broad program of benefaction, aiding many an Elmiran in trouble or in need.  Mrs. Iszard was a past president of the Rotary Anns, and an active member of the Elmira Garden Club and the American Legion Auxiliary.

ISZARD, SAMUEL FRENCH   1868 to 1949
 Samuel French Iszard was born in 1868 in Gloucester County, New Jersey.  He was introduced to the retail business while living in Philadelphia, and eventually established a dry good business of his own.  In 1904, Mr. Iszard bought the Reynolds Brother Store on the corner of Water and Baldwin Streets in Elmira.  On February 4th, 1904 the first Iszard Store opened its doors.  Samuel French Iszard became known in the community as a wide-awake, up-to-date merchant and the Iszard Store prospered.  Then in November, 1923 construction started on the new Iszard Store, located at its present site on Main Street in Elmira.  On November 15th, 1924 the modern S. F. Iszard Co. opened for business.  This fulfilled a growing dream S. F. Iszard had formulated for more than 30 years.  In 1949, Samuel French Iszard died but left a well established business that has continued to grow with the community.
