The death of Mrs. Henrietta M. Vanderhoof occurred yesterday at the residence of her grandaughter, Mrs. Frederick W. Smith, No. 10 Augustine street. The immediate cause of death was the shock resulting from a fall and the fracture of an arm. Mrs. Vanderhoof was born in Mendon, N.Y. in 1813. She received her education in the district school. While attending school she saw Lafayette while that famous Frenchman was on his way from Canandaigua to Rochester. In 1833 she married Remsen Vanderhoof and went to Victor, where they resided for nine years. In 1847 they moved to Fairport where they resided for forty-two years. When her husband died in 1889 Mrs. Vanderhoff came to Rochester and had resided in this city since that time.
She was a member of the First Universalist Church. The deceased is survived by two daughters, Mrs. George W. Hamilton of Grand Rapids, Mich., and Mrs. Louilla A. Wood, and two grandchildren, Hiram R. Wood and Mrs. Frederick Smith of this city. The funeral will be held from the family residence at 1:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon.
