Sunday’s Obituary – Horace Addison Hugg

Horace Addison Hugg, 84, died about 1 o’clock yesterday afternoon at his home in Jacksonville. He leaves a sister, Mrs. Mary Hulburt of North Spencer, and several nieces and nephews.  The funeral will be held at 2 o’clock tomorrow afternoon from the Methodist Episcopal church in Jacksonville. Rev. Schuyler C. Henry will officiate. Interment will be in Trumbull’s Cemetery. Fidelity Lodge, F. and A.M. of which Mr. Hugg had been a member for 63 years, will be in charge of the services at the church.

This obit was secured with a straight pin to the front of William Lanning Tucker’s Standard Diary for 1921. A bit of research found that Horace Hugg (1838-1922) was buried in Trumbull’s Corners Rural Cemetery, 761 Millard Hill Road, Newfield, NY, next to his wife Elizabeth (1849-1921).  In 1910, the Huggs lived in Ithaca; by 1920 they lived with and worked for Mary Ann Northrup in Enfield, NY. That is probably how William L. Tucker came to know the Huggs.
