JOHN ELMER FRENCH
One of the pioneer families of Middlebury Township, Tioga County, Pennsylvania, was that of William and Esther French and another one was that of Henry B. and Anna Colegrove. The youngest child of each family, John W. French and Ann R. Colegrove, were married in September 1861. The young couple began housekeeping on a little farm not far from Keeneyville and here on October 18, 1862, their first child John Elmer, was born. The father, however, had enlisted in the service of his country and the young mother returned with her little son to the home of her parents, where they remained until the close of the war, when broken in health and suffering from the effects of a gunshot wound the soldier returned. In 1868, he removed his family to a small farm which he had purchased in Chatham, and here they lived until Elmer was twelve years of age. For this little home he always cherished the fondest memories; to him it wa and ideal spot and in letters and verse he often alluded to this “Happy Day Land” pf his childhood
In October 1885 he was married to Dora Wood, of
Keeneyville, and to them was born one son, George E. His education was
received in the public schools, one year at the Soldiers’ Orphan School and two
terms at the State Normal School at Mansfield. When nineteen years of age
he began teaching and for twelve years taught in the schools of Chatham and
Middlebury; then he removed to Costello, where he taught five years and was two
years principal of the Galeton High. Following this he was engaged by a
large manufacturing firm as its representative and for a number of years he
travelled through the Central and Western States from Ohio to Texas. In
1912 he became ill while in the West and returned to his home in Westfield,
where he suffered a long illness, from the effects of which he never fully
recovered. In 1918 he came to Elmira to take a position in the iffices of
the Willys-Morrow Co. Six years later he accepted the position of
bookkeeper for the Elmira Building Units Co., where he was employed at the time
of his death. He was a member of the Elmira Council U. C. T. and of the
Westfield F. and A. M. He united with the Methodist Church at Little
Marsh when nineteen years of age and took an active interest in Christian work
and for many years was leader of the choir. He also composed both words
and music of many hymns for church use. After an illness of only three weeks
he passed on his rest on the morning of the annivesary of the birth of Lincoln,
the one for whom his heart was full of devotion.
“Tho the voice of the singer
Forever is still,
His songs linger here
Mid memories dear
From the lips of the zephyrs,
The trees and the rill,
I hear them again,
I hear them again.”
From “The Little Brown Apple.”
To those who have known him best, his memory will remain as a priceless benediction. A man of simple and refined tastes, he loved the smiling scenes of Nature, the comforts of home and the inspirations of friendship. He was ever a student , and never missed an opportunity to learn something worth learning, feeling he might some time have need of just that bit of knowledge. Never content with merely memorizing facts, he meditated on, weighed and analyzed them. He not only did things, but he did them in the best way of which he was capable, originating ideas, methods and facilities; working with a tireless energy which characterized him in everything in which he took an interest. As a teacher, he was pre-eminently successful; giving directions with clearness and accuracy, and developing in the lives of his pupils high ideals that are imperishably associated with their recollections of him.
He was a skilled mechanic, having learned the carpenter's trade, and during his years of teaching when school was not in session he followed this occupation. In this he was painstaking and accurate, fashioning his work with his soul in his job as a "workman that needeth not be ashamed." He was an ardent lover of his country and wrote and sang words that kindled patriotism in many hearts. When travelling he always visited all places of historical interest and could describe them with the vividness and charm if the real story teller. To his friends he was generous, constant and loyal, and many have felt that human touch upon the heart strings that has cheered and helped them through seasons of darkness when the spoken words of sympathy or a timely letter written has been to them "like apples of gold in the pictures of silver." And when in the pilgrimage of life he sometimes came to a place where the road was blocked, he kept his faith and courage and always found the way round. His literary ability was of no mean quality, short articles and poems having appeared in various periodicals. the three following of his own bits of verse were read as part of the service on the morning when he was borne to his place of rest back near the old home in Pennsylvania he loved so well.
THAT LITTLE WHITE CHURCH
No other church in all this land,
To me is half so dear;
No other friends that I have known,
Can ever seem so near;
For in the days of hope and love,
How oft' I 've lingered there;
To join in fervent songs of praise,
Or bow in silent prayer.
In childhood days i saw this church,
Spring from verdant sod;
The pride of all who sought a place
In which to worship God.
I've heard the clanging of the bell'
That swings beneath the spire,
And here I've learned the Gospel Truth,
And here I've trained the choir.
'Tis here my mother loves to come,
Although she cannot see,
She hears the story once again,
And lisps a prayer for me.
While all deplore her bitter fate,
And hearts with pity swell.
She murmurs not, but clings to Him,
"Whodoeth all things well."
O! when my day of toll is o'er,
And all my sorrows past,
And I have laid me down to rest
In peace and joy at last,
May Heaven smile unpon this church,
And may the angels keep
Watch o'er this little flock and fold,
While I shall sleep and sleep.
(John Elmer French) J. E. F.
THE COMMON MAN
He wanted good food; and hastened to the field
To gather fruit; but found the withered vines
Plucked from the earth; and all the golden yield
Lay trampled in the dust. He saw signs;
Footprints of Greed; deep dented in the sand'
But did not understand.
He wanted clothes; and turned to find the flocks
That once did graze in pastures on the hill
Had perished; and nearby guilty rocks
Where bleached their silent bones, he saw there still
Footprints of Greed; deep dented in the sand;
But did not understand.
He wanted shelter; and where once the trees
Sprang majestic beauty from the fen,
He found but withered leaves; upon the breeze
Dark fog and odors rose. He saw again
Footprints of Greed, deep dented in the sands;
But now he understands.
J. E. F.
"Tis but a breath,
A morning breeze,
A sighing wind
Among the trees -
Then all is calm.
'Tis but a thread
That spans between
The present and
The great unseen -
A slender cord
'Tis but a mist,
A summer shower,
A bursting storm,
A silent hour,
Then sweet repose.
In looking through some papers in his room this little poem was discovered which doubtless was written a short time before his death.
WHEN I SHALL FALL TO SLEEP
"Twill not be long ere I shall fall to sleep.
And friend I love beside my bier shall weep;
But my poor soul will not be there,
To see their tears or hear their whispered prayer.
Whene'er that day shall come, let me not fear
To close my eyes, or long to linger here;
But give me faith to say, "God knowest best."
Then when I fall to sleep, I'll sweetly rest.
Upon my breast lay but a withered leaf,
A symbol of the end of life and grief;
Weave me no floral wreath of roses red;
A rose can bring no joy when I am dead.
