REV. DAVID W. ELMORE, A. M.
REVEREND DAVID WILLIAM ELMORE AND HIS DESCENDANTS, third son of Dr. Wm. Curtis Elmore and Eliza (Howard) Elmore, was born in Chatham, New York, February 3, 1800. From his earliest years he was possessed of an unconquerable thirst for knowledge, which assisted him in overcoming many seemingly insurmountable difficulties standing between him and the acquisition of such an education as he determined to make his own.
He entered Union College, New York, and in due time was graduated, receiving, among other honors, the degree of Master of Arts. But his preparation for this course was made in the brief moments snatched from unremitting daily duties; his Latin and Greek text books, for this purpose, becoming his inseparable companions. This desire for increased knowledge never left him. Although in later life an excellent Hebrew scholar, with six other languages readily at his command, and possessed of a well cultivated and richly stored mind, he remitted no effort in this direction, but was a deep and thoughtful student to the last. The large and valuable library which he accumulated has been distributed among his various children - perhaps the larger portion of it remaining at the old Homestead - but by no inheritance has any of them attained the wisdom and culture that were his.
He was an extensive writer, the moral and political questions of his day engaging his pen almost unceasingly; and was also the author of "Elmore's Grammar", a school text book of real merit, but now for a long time superseded by other and more modern works. By some means the greater part of his writings have been lost, few now being attainable.
When quite young he was converted, made a profession of faith in Christ, and united with the Baptist Church. Being convinced that he was called to preach, he entered Newton Theological Seminary, passing through the prescribed course, was graduated from the same, and ordained a minister of the Gospel in the denomination of his choice.
On December 5, 1824, he married Miss Mary A. Humphrey, third daughter of General Chauncey Humphrey of Albany, New York, this event occurring before the completion of his theological studies. After his ordination he was successively pastor of several churches in the State of New York; came to Illinois in 1836, and procured a farm of about four hundred acres upon the beautiful banks of the Fox river, with the intention of here giving practical form to his long cherished plan of establishing a "Manual Labor School." In this he was at first partially successful, but for lack of needed cooperation the enterprise had to be abandoned, and upon these extensive grounds was erected the family residence, and from that time they became the Family Homestead.
Following this, he served several churches in Illinois as pastor, among them the one at St. Charles, and, in fact, organized most of the Baptist Churches now existing in the various cities and villages in Kane county, lying upon the Fox river. As the country was still new and but thinly settled, and the communities poor, his was largely a gratuitous, pioneer work, much of the time being devoted to supplying destitute churches that were unable to provide for the support of a regular pastor. In the recently published history of Kane county, Illinois, the fact is noted that he preached the first sermon ever delivered in the village of Dundee. Extended mention is also made of the part he had in molding for good, in their incipiency, those elements which in their later development have made this county one known for its sterling moral worth and substantial prosperity; and this was done amid the privations incident to life in a newly settled county, and while necessarily putting forth great exertions to make provision for the support and education of a large family.
All of his intercourse with his fellow-men was characterized by a deep interest in their welfare, and a willingness to suffer personal loss, rather than treat any with possible injustice; and this had its influence, not unfrequently, in winning over very unpromising cases. As illustrative of this, the history of Kane county, above alluded to, tells the incident of his having at one time some valuable stock stolen, which, after due search, could not be found; and how that, some ten years later, when the circumstance had nearly passed from recollection, a restitution, sufficient to cover both principal and interest, was voluntarily made by the offender, who stated that his conscience had not allowed him a moment's peace since he wrongfully appropriated the property of one, who himself was so careful in relation to the rights and feelings of others.
In personal appearance he was slightly below the medium height, but well proportioned; had black curly hair and blue eyes, and wore a beard. His features were not very regular, but his forehead was a noble one. His expression was generally grave and thoughtful; his manner quiet and reserved.
In a biographical sketch like this, it is not easy for the compiler to write dispassionately of a beloved father, whose record he treasures, and whose memory he reveres. Aside from such an one's public services, there is too deep a debt of gratitude due from those for whose existence and education he sacrificed so much and so cheerfully; and yet, in this brief narrative, less has been said than the facts would warrant, as will be readily substantiated by the few of those who yet remain, whose lives were parallel with his own; and if there is room for rejoicing, it would be best expressed in the familiar words of Cowper:
"My boast is not, that I deduce my birth
From loins enthroned, and rulers of the earth,
But higher far my proud pretensions rise—
The son of parents pass'd into the skies."
His was a cheerful type of piety; a practical every-day religion, which made the atmosphere brighter for his presence, and rendered lives more glad for contact with his own. While strong in character, and steadfast in his adherence to his convictions of duty, he was tender in his sympathies, and possessed of a great, loving heart, access to which was never denied those who sought his counsel or aid. He had a seemingly inexhaustible fund of humorous stories and instructive narratives, which he never hesitated to draw upon when, by their relation, he could minister to the pleasure of his family or others; and among the pleasant recollections of the compiler, is that of being awakened from childhood's sound sleep by the pleasing changes rung upon his own name, in the varying cadence of the voice of that father, who would not rudely disturb his boyhood's slumber.
In the midst of life's duties and in manhood's strength, on the 29th day of July, 1854, he left his home. An approaching thunder storm overtook him apart from shelter; the lightning's swift stroke, in an instant, quenched the life which had been so long unselfishly devoted to others' good; and to his stricken household—overwhelmed by this sudden calamity—was borne back all that was mortal of the loved husband and father.
On the following Sunday the sacred dust was consigned to earth, in the presence of his family and a large concourse of those who had known and honored him in life, and now mingled their tears with those who wept. The funeral and memorial services were participated in by Rev. A. J. Joslyn and Rev. Niles Kinne, pastors respectively of the Baptist Churches at Elgin and St. Charles, Illinois, the discourse being based upon the words—so in keeping with his life and death—"And Enoch walked with God; and he was not; for God took him."
Although granted space for no farewell word to those he left behind, his daily walk was itself a mingled benediction and blessing, leaving upon many hearts its impress for good:
His toils and his trials are ended,
His life-work is faithfully done;
Rev. David W. Elmore.
The right ever ably defended.
The battle for truth nobly won;
While still at the post of his duty,
In the midst of life active and blest,
Came the message from yon world of beauty—
'Tis finished, now enter thy rest.

The following acrostic, of which he was the author is copied from the album of his third daughter:
ANN LOVELL ELMORE
Alive with powers, control by thine own will,
Not by thine own, but by God's, whose thou are,
Nor can'st thou ever cease to exist still;
Life, God has said, shall ne'er from thee depart.
Oh what a thought—Eternity is thine!
Void though of bliss, but what thyself shall choose;
E'en though thou to the dust thy dust resign,
Life in the Spirit Land, thou can'st not loose.
Let thy desire, then, be for endless bliss,
Expect thy treasure in the Spirit Land,
Lay up thy wealth in that, while yet in this,
Make Christ thy friend, with his disciple band;
Obey His word, trust His redeeming love,
Receive His promises, his grace expand;
Eternal bliss is thy reward above.
Asylum, Kane County, Illinois, Oct. 13, 1850.

The following was written for, and originally appeared in, The Palladium:

Practical Grammar

A kiss is a noun, says young Charles, we allow;
But say, is it proper, or common?
Young Hannah, then blushing, replies "why I vow
I think it's both proper and common."
This pun in an almanac long since I read,
And now I'll a parody prove,

(Family Memorials In Prose And Verse—Part II—Family Biographies And Writings, page 237)


Mrs. Mary A. Elmore

For love is a verb when of acting 'tis said;
But active or passive is love?
Christ loves His church and the wolf loves the lamb,
And "I love Penelope," too;
And that you should show me how anxious I am,
Which sort of loving I do?
Christ's love is diffusive and acts on the church,
As you know, by doing her good:
But the love of the wolf for the lamb is diverse,
For it acts when he makes her his food.
Now study the "voice" of the love in your breast,
And say, if to give or receive
Is what makes you the most abundantly blessed,
And no longer yourself you'll deceive.
If our love in the passive at last shall be found,
Neath the pavements of hell we'll be trod,
But if our true love doth active abound,
We've a place in the Kingdom of God.

(From Family Memorials in Verse and Prose, by Theodore James Elmore, page 238)
