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.6

     In the obituary of Samuel Rote who died 2 December 1916, his daughter, Mrs Robert Renwick was listed as a survivor.11
     Mrs Robers (sic) R Renwick was referenced in a newspaper article about Walter Renwick and Mary Renwick on 11 September 1923 in the newspaper the Daily Chronicle.12

Another sister, Mrs. John Firkins of Kirkand, poured coffee; and their niece, Mrs. Donald Firkins of Sycamore, served the punch. The honored couple was well remembered with lovely cards and gifts.

     Gladys was born on 11 May 1900 in Illinois, USA.6,1,3,7,5,8 Gladys married John Christian Arntzen before 15 June 1925.1,7,9,10,8,11 She died on 14 March 1995 in Sarasota County, Florida, USA, at age 94.6,12,1
     Her name was also recorded as Gladys Renwick Arntzen.6
     This may be Gladys I Renwick who was born May 11, 1900. The newspaper may have given the wrong gender of the newborn child of Robert Renwick.13 Gladys Irene Renwickwas referenced in the biographical information that appeared about Robert R Renwick in 1907 in the book Past and Present of DeKalb County, Illinois, Chicago, Illinois, USA:
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.2

     The following newspaper article appeared in the DeKalb, Illinois Daily Chronicle 15 June 1925 :
John Arntzen and wife returned yesterday from a short wedding trip, and last evening left for Urbana, where Mr. Arntzen. will take his final examinations at the university.11

     In the obituary of Robert R Renwick who died 8 October 1951, Robert's daughter, Gladys Arntzen was listed as a survivor.14
     Gladys Irene Renwick, Alice's daughter, was referenced in a newspaper article about Alice L Rote on 4 December 1964 in the newspaper the True Republican.15
     In the obituary of Alice L Rote who died 27 February 1969, Alice's daughter, Gladys Artzen was listed as a survivor.16
     In the obituary of John David Arntzen who died 16 June 2014, his mother, Gladys Renwick was listed as predeceased.17

     He, Father-in-law,was referenced in the biographical information that appeared about Robert R Renwick in 1907 in the book Past and Present of DeKalb County, Illinois, Chicago, Illinois, USA:
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.3


The following biographical information appeared in the book Past and Present of DeKalb County, Illinois published in Chicago, Illinois, 1907:
Samuel Rote
Samuel Rote has found in the rich agricultural resources of De Kalb county the means not only for a livelihood but for the acquirement of a comfortable competence, for here he has spent his entire life, having been born in Lycoming county, Pennsylvania, August 14, 1844, while today he owns a well improved farm of eighty acres on section 26, Mayfield township. His parents, Henry and Esther (Carpenter) Rote, were born in Pennsylvania. The father, hearing favorable reports concening the new and rapidly developing west, made his way to this state in 1856, and followed farming in Mayfield township.

Samuel Bote acquired his education in the common schools of Mayfield township while spending the days of his boyhood and youth under the parental roof. He was early trained by his father to the duties of the home farm, assisting in the work of the homestead property until starting out upon an independent business career, at which time he chose the occupation to which he had been reared and this has continued to be his source of revenue to the present time. He is now the owner of a well improved farm of eighty acres, situated on section 26, Mayfield township, and here he is engaged in raising the cereals best adapted to soil and climate and through the careful cultivation of his land he is rewarded each year with rich harvests, his products finding a ready sale on the market, where they command the highest prices.

Mr. Rote was married February 18, 1868, to Miss Christina Yonkin, and their union has been blessed with a son and daughter: George C, who follows farming in Mayfield township; and Alice, now the wife of Robert R. Renwick, a resident farmer of this township, and whose sketch appears elsewhere in this work.

While believing firmly in the principles and policy of the republican party, Mr. Rote has never been active in political ranks, and aside from serving as pathmaster for one term, has never filled public office, preferring to give his time and attention to his private business affairs. Mrs. Rote is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church at Sycamore, and Mr. Rote attends its services. He is well known in De Kalb county, where his entire life has been passed, and is recognized as a most honorable and trustworthy citizen, well deserving of mention among the highly esteemed residents in a work of this character.5

     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the True Republican published in Sycamore, Illinois 6 December 1916:
