    Another of Potter County’s heroes has passed away. Jesse M. Greenman died in Hebron December 18th in the 83rd year of his age. Born in Town of Stephenson [Stephentown], Rensselaer county, NY, February 23, 1796, and moved into Hebron, Potter County, PA, 48 years ago. He lived about two years on the lot now owned by Chas. Gorham. In December 1832, he contracted for one hundred acres of unimproved farming land, where he made it his home till he died. He built a log cabin and moved on to the land the same month. Raised a family of seven children, four boys and three girls, and cleared up fifty acres of land at the same time. Gave liberally to support of the church and gave time and money to the Temperance and the anti-slavery causes.

    In 1836 he helped organize the first Seventh Day Baptist Church of Potter County; was one of the charter members, and faithful and energetic in its support. Was a pledged Temperance man from the day he moved into the County to the day of his death.

    The next year after he came to this County, in 1831, he was one of the men who pledged the whole of Crandall Hill Settlement to Nelson Clark to help raise his saw-mill without whiskey. The pledge was kept and the mill was raised without whiskey; but, we are sorry to say, Coudersport and Lymansville furnished no aid to Mr. Clark in his noble work.

    Mr. Greenman gave up the management of his farm to his sons several years ago, but continued to look after his orchard and a fruit garden with great success until August last, since which time he has been a great sufferer from a disease of the heart, preventing him from lying down, except twice, for a half hour each time.

    We have been intimately acquainted with Mr. Greenman since 1841 and we count it a great privilege to have associated with so true and steadfast an advocate of the right. (J. S. Mann)
