ROBERT R. RENWICK
Among the prosperous and representative agriculturists of Mayfield township may be numbered Robert R. Renwick, who owns and operates one hundred and fifty-seven acres of well improved land on section 29. He was born on this place August 15, 1866, a son of George and Mary (Young) Renwick, who were natives of Scotland and Canada respectively. They came to the United States in 1835, settling on the farm which is now the home of our subject.

Robert R. Renwick pursued his education in the district schools near his father's home. He was early trained to the duties of the home farm, assisting his father in the cultivation of the land and the care of the crops, so that he was well fitted to continue work along this line when he started out in life on his own account. With the exception of a brief period of two years he has spent his entire life on this farm and during the years that have come and gone he has worked diligently and earnestly in his efforts to acquire a competence. He has brought the fields under a high state of cultivation and each year harvests rich and abundant crops as a reward for the care and labor which he bestows upon the fields. He is practical and progressive in all that he does, keeping everything about his place in a good state of repair, so that his property is numbered among the valuable farms of Mayfield township.

Choosing a companion and helpmate for life's journey, Mr. Renwick was married December 17, 1890, to Miss Alice Rote, a daughter of Samuel Rote, a farmer of Mayfield township, and his sketch appears elsewhere in this volume. Two children, a son and daughter, have come to bless the home of Mr. and Mrs. Renwick : Clive Duaue, who was born July 19, 1892; and Gladys Irene, born May 11, 1900.

Mr. Renwick gives stalwart support to the republican party and has taken an active interest in its work, having served as tax collector of his township, while for the past twelve years he has served as school director, the cause of education finding in him a warm friend. Fraternally he is identified with the Modern Woodmen of America, belonging to camp No. 47, at Sycamore, while both he and his wife hold membership relations with the Methodist Episcopal church in their township. They are a highly esteemed couple of their community, having a host of warm and lasting friends, while Mr. Renwick is everywhere known as a substantial and reliable man in his business transactions.12

James Renwick, Pioneer
Funeral of Former Well-Known and Highly Respected Citizen of South Grove Township Was Held In That Town on Thursday

[note that the repeated phrase "ship, DeKalb county, died last Tuesday ship, DeKalb county, died last Monday" is as printed in the original]

James Renwick, a well known and esteemed pioneer of South Grove town-ship, DeKalb county, died last Tuesday ship, DeKalb county, died last Monday in Rockford, where he had made his home for a number of years.

James Renwick was born in Dumfrieshire, Scotland, on June 2, 1832, and came to DeKalb county in 1850.

The funeral, which was private, was held at the home, 1220 Charles Street, Rockford, at 7 o'clock on Thursday morning, and the remains were taken to South Grove, and interred in the family lot in South Grove cemetery, a number of relatives and friends from Sycamore being present. The Rockford Star said:

In 1861 Mr Renwick was married to Miss Rosina Becker, who survives him, and to them were born five children, three of whom: Marion C. Odor of Hammond, Ind., R. H. Renwick of Argyle, Ill., and Mrs. Rose R. Lawbaugh of this city. Thomas H. Renwick of Kirkland, Ill., Robert Renwick of Maple Park, Ill., Mrs. Margaret Julian of Dixon, and Mrs. Agnes Bryan of Sycamore, Ill., are the surviving brothers and sisters.

Mr. Renwick attended the First Congregational church of this city, where he had been a communicant almost from the time he arrived in the city to make his home, which was in October 1884. He led a retired life in this city, having amassed a considerable fortune as a farmer.

Those who know Mr. Renwick best spoke of him as a kind and loving husband and father and a man who was steadfast to his friends. His wonderful memory of vents that happened in the long ago frequently was commented on by those who had his confidence. He remembered America when it was a new country and the states when many of them east of the Alleghany mountains were little more than wilderness with a town scattered here and there.9

Their destination was Upper Canada. Both Walter and his son, William gave their occupation as a farmer.

His brother James was enumerated as the next household.15 He lived at South Grove, DeKalb County, Illinois, USAG, in 1880.1

The following biographical information appeared in the book The Biographical Record of De Kalb County, Illinois published in Chicago, Illinois, 1898:
THOMAS RENWICK, who owns and operates a fine farm on section 2, South Grove township, is a native of Dumfries county, Scotland, born April 29, 1834, and is the son of Walter and Mary (Weil) Renwick, the former a native of Scotland and the latter of England. They were the parents of sixteen children, of whom our subject was fourteenth in order of birth. The family came from Scotland to America in 1835, and located first in Canada, where the father engaged in farming until 1845, when he came to Illinois, located first in Kane county and later coming to Cortland township, De Kalb county, and from there to Pierce township.

The subject of this sketch was in his infancy when he accompanied his parents to Canada, and was but eleven years of age when he came with them to Illinois. His education was obtained principally in the common schools of this state. He started in life for himself at the age of eighteen years, working on a farm by the month at ten dollars. On the 9th day of March, 1864, he married Lucy A. Ramsey, a native of South Grove township, De Kalb county, and a daughter of George Ramsey, who was born in Pennsylvania, and a farmer by occupation who came to Illinois in 1838, first locating in Monroe township, Ogle county, Illinois, where she was born. By this union three children have been born: Bessie, Lucy O., and Thomas J.

Starting in life without a cent and receiving no aid from any source, Mr. Renwick has made a success and has now seven hundred and twenty acres of as fine land as there is in De Kalb county, all being well improved, with good buildings and properly drained. In politics he is an ardent Republican and has held the office of road commissioner. As a man he enjoys the utmost confidence and respect of all who know him.16


The following biographical information appeared in the book Past and Present of DeKalb County, Illinois published in Chicago, Illinois, 1907:
"In 1851 James and Thomas Renwick worked for James Byers, Sr., and a few years later bought of Henry Mix, a land speculator, the land now owned by James Renwick, Daniel McMurchy and Robert Hutchinson."

[Note that Daniel is a nephew of James Renwick.]17

Mrs. William Bryan Celebrates Her 96th Birthday on Tuesday
Not very many people live to celebrate a 96th birthday but Mrs. William Bryan of this city has just been given this privilege.

Twenty-four of Mrs. Bryan's relatives gathered at the home of her niece Miss Mary McMurchy on Mason Court Tuesday noon to pay honor to this lovely old lady and to enjoy the delicious birthday dinner. The guests were seated at two long tables which were beautifully decorated with choice hot house flowers -- gifts to the honoree.

Mrs. Bryan has three living children, Mrs. James Shaw and Walter Bryan of this city and George Bryan, of Randolph, Neb., who with their families were present, together with the company of nieces and nephews and other relatives who included Mrs. Ralph Parkins and Mrs. Thomas Renwick of Kirkland and Mrs. Robert Renwick of Maple Park. Mrs. Bryan has two grandchildren and five great grandchildren, all of whom were present at this happy gathering.

Mrs. Bryan was born in Canada but has lived practically all her life in this vicinity, bringing up her family in Mayfield, where she and her husband, the late William Bryan owned a large farm. Mr. Bryan passed on in 1908. Of late years Mrs. Bryan has made her home with her daughter Mrs. James Shaw on Mason Court, where she is the best loved lady in the neighborhood. She is a remarkable woman, whose memory is still alert and whose health is good, and whose evening of a well spent life makes those around her realize how lovely a cheerful, kindly, sunshinny old age may be; they were reminded too, as Mrs. Bryan sat among them with the snow of time upon her head "that the points of earth are whitest which are nearest to heaven."21     

     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the True Republican published in Sycamore, Illinois 22 February 1933:
Mrs. A. Bryan Dies At Age 97
Sycamore's Oldest Citizen Succumbs
MAYFIELD PIONEER


Funeral Services at Home of Daughter, Mrs. James Shaw, 137 Mason Court, Thursday Afternoon. -- Interment at Ohio Grove.

Mrs. Agnes Bryan, one of DeKalb county's oldest pioneers and Sycamore's oldest resident, aged 97 years, answered the summons of the Grim Reaper on Monday evening, Feb. 20, at 10 o'clock, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. James Shaw, 137 Mason Court, in this county. She had been confined to her bed but four days, when she slipped quietly and peacefully into that Greater Sleep.

Mrs. Bryan is another outstanding pioneer of Mayfield township, over whose life history there lingers a touch of reverence for the nobility of her womanhood and an added veneration for her long span of years.

Near Century Mark
Although the milestones of her earthly pilgrimages had son nearly reached the century mark, the sunset of her life was measured not alone by years, but by those finer and deeper attributes of character which endeared her to all whom she has known in the intimate associates of her lifetime of four score and seventeen years.

Her home, with family and friends about her was Mrs. Bryan's greatest pleasure in her abundant life. She was able to read without glasses, and kept well-informed on the live issues of the day. She possessed an apt power of acquisition and her remarkable retention of memory was the admiration and marvel of all. She retained an active interest in life and proved herself an enviable companion for wither youth or age.

Rare Gift of Friendship
Her gift of friendship becomes, with her passing, a rare and priceless heritage which will be cherished by family, friends and neighbors as a treasured memory of her sweet dignity, her kindness of manner and her keen appreciation of life and its blessings.

Agnes Renwick was born Dec. 29, 1835, at Orono, Canada, and died in her ninety-eighth year in Sycamore on Feb. 20, 1933. She was the last of 16 children, being next to the youngest child of Mary Wiel and Walter Renwick, prominent DeKalb county pioneers of Mayfield township.

The family resided in Canada during the early years of her life, removing to Canada Corners in Kane county in 1842. She lost her mother at the tender age of seven years, at the age of 12, it became her duty to assist her sisters in the care and responsibility of the home.

She was married March 22, 1858, to William Bryan of Pierce township. After a year's residence in Pierce township, Mr. and Mrs. Bryan moved in 1864, to Mayfield township where they made their home until Mr. Bryan's death. For the past 19 years, Mrs. Bryan had lived with her daughter, Mrs. Shaw in this city. She was a member of the Methodist church of Sycamore.

Suffered Broken Hip.
Six years ago last October, Mrs. Bryan suffered a fall which resulted in a broken hip. She rallied from this unfortunate accident in a manner most remarkable for one of her years. She has received the most solicitous and devoted care through the years from her daughter, Mrs. James Shaw, who survives, George Bryan, a son, of Randolph, Neb., and Walter Bryan of Sycamore, also survive.

Funeral services will be held at the late home Thursday, Feb. 23, at 2 p.m., Rev. H. S. Roblee, officiating. Interment will be in the family lot in Ohio Grove cemetery.
----------------
The True Republican is indebted
(Continued on Page Two)
to W. H. Bilney, Sycamore's well-known historian, frr the following article, which was written in its entirety by Mr. Bilney, when Mrs. Bryan had reached the advanced age of 93 years, Dec. 28, 1928.

Let us go back about 124 years; the scene is in Bonny Scotland, the land of the mistletoe, the heather and the thistle. Numerous castles, among them Andrew Carnegie's "Scibo Castle," also the late Queen Victoria's beloved Balmoral Castle in the countryside. Near Dunfries (sic) lived a lad and lassie - Walter Renwick, age 29, who thought that "it is not good for a man to be alone." and Mary Weil, age 20 and an orphan, who agreed with him. So they both agreed to "love, cherish and obey" until death do them part.

They also remembered the Biblical injunction to multiply and replenish the earth.

Children Born In Scotland
Now let us see how well they kept their vows:

In due time a baby boy was born, died, not named. Walter Renwick, being of Scotch thrift and honesty, plodded on and on with his farm work, while Mary, the young bride, attended the household duties. One by one the little ones came until there were thirteen little Renwicks, eight boys and five girls, living.

The father had little hope of anything better than being a "hewer of wood and drawer of water" very likely after reading Elizabeth Barrett Browning's beautiful poem, "The Cry of the Children" of which I quote a few lines:

"They looked up with their pale and sunken faces, and their looks are sad to see, your old earth, they say is very dreary, our young feet, they say, are very weak. Few paces have we taken, yet are weary, our grave rest is very for (sic) to seek?"

Immigrated to America
Now Walter and Mary decided to come to the new world, so they took their 13 little ones, six boys and seven girls, and boarded a sailing vessel in June, 1835.

Mrs. Bryan will observe her 93rd birthday on Saturday, December 29. Of the family of 16, seven boys and seven girls, 15 of them grew to manhood and womanhood. All of them married and reared families. Their total number of children is 89; 48 boys and 41 girls. There was one pair of twins, Mrs. Adolph Julien and Mrs. Abner Calhoun. There have been seven golden weddings, including Mrs. Bryan's; the other six were Mary Riddle, William Renwick, Margaret Julien, James, Thomas and Robert Renwick. Two widows are living, Mrs. Tom and Robert Renwick. Of the 15 children there were no second marriages.

As Mrs. Bryan is a follower of John and Charles Wesley, when Father Time calls as he is sure to all of us, Mother Bryan will greet him with a smile and her children will rise up and call her Blessed.

My simple tribute to this noble soul will be:

Soft may her body rest
As on her mother's breast,
Whose love stands all confessed
'Mid binding tears.
But may her soul so white
Rise in triumphant fight
And in God's land of light
Spend endless years
-- Wm. H. Bilney.11
