  Hugh C. McClintock 

The death of Hugh C. McClintock, 88, removes from his still very considerable circle of intimate friends a man who for the depth of his religious conviction and his stead-fastness in the service of the Master might well be made an example for mankind, and who in his more active days was widely known and esteemed in a high degree in this community. He passed away at the Meadville Home for Children and Aged Monday morning, after a very brief illness.


Mr. McClintock was born in Venango Co. on March 20, 1832. He and three of his brothers, Hamilton R, John and James, came to Meadville to reside about 1865, and all were largely instrumental in the formation of the State Street Church society and the building of that church. Later Hamilton McClintock became a local preacher and Hugh, as an exhorter, was heard frequently and with great earnestness in the pulpit and in public religious meetings. Each held unswervingly to the course chosen in early life and through to the end. 

A few years ago Hugh McClintock decided to make his home at the home where he passed away, and in that circle his Christian character soon won recognition and his natural place as a leader in the religious life of the home. He was a man of energy and loved to visit the homes of local relatives where he was a frequent and welcome caller, and where the influence of his deeply religious mind was ever a benediction. 


Mr. Clintock is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Henry H. Chase of Buffalo, NY, and son, Harry McClintock, of Shreveport, LA, and by adopted daughter, Mrs. Emma Gray, of Iowa. The only remaining brother, William, lives in Michigan. The funeral will be held from the old homestead of his brother, John McClintock, 445 Randolph Street at 2 o'clock Wednesday and interment will be in the family lot in Greendale Cemetery.
