Winchell Reunion (1910)
"A very remarkabie family reunion occured at tha home of Jonathan Van Winchell in the town of Olive Saturday, September 24, 1910. The seven surviving sons and daughters of Jacob Winchell were the center of interest. The oldest is Jonathan Winchell aged 89 years. Then Rebecca Perry, Charlotte Markle, Delilah Bush, Phebe Everett, William Winchell and Azarias Winchell. The combined sum of their ages is 533 years, and their average age is 76-77 years. Twenty-three members of the Jacob Winchell family were present and the Rev. and Mrs. C.G. Gorse of Shokan especially invited guests. A very substantial dinner, a fair sample of Winchell cookery, consisting of roast beef, chicken, vegetables, pie, ice cream, and cake were served and received due justice from all. The brothers and sisters had their pictures taken in a group by Mrs. Gorse, as did also the whole company. The affair was a most delightful one. No one enjoyed it more than did Jonathan Winchell, the eldest brother in this remarkable family, who is well preserved for a man of his years. [3]

Death & Burial


From the Signs of the Times:
Deacon Jonathan Winchell died at the home of his son, Olive, N.Y., Sept 14th, 1913, in the 92nd year of his age. Brother Winchell was a son of Elder Jacob Winchell, who served the Olive and Hurley Church for a number of years as pastor. Brother Winchell united with the Olive and Hurley Church Dec. 22nd, 1867, and was baptized by Elder I. S. Hewitt. He was chosen deacon of the Olive and Hurley Church shortly after he united with the church, and filled the office well. He was a faithful and devoted member as well as a deacon. In the days of his youth and vigor he was always first to lend a helping hand to those in need; many are the acts of kindness he performed to the poor and needy. Brother Winchell was a man of sterling qualities, upright in all his walk; he loved mercy, dealt justly and walked uprightly. For a number of years he was not able to get out to meeting; he was not sick at heart, but his great age brought with it the infirmities of old age, which confined him to his home. He longed to depart and be with Christ, yet was willing to wait the Lord's time.
His funeral was held from his home, and was largely attended by friends and relatives, which spoke louder than words the high esteem in which he was held. Burial was in the Winchell Cemetery. The writer conducted the services, trying to speak to the comfort of the friends such as the Lord was pleased to give.
