  • Notes 
    • from the Columbus Gazette, Nov 9 1860...

      Jacob Hare, an old citizen of Columbus, died on the 3rd of November, 1860. In the 80th year of his age. His disease was cancer, from which he suffered much during his last year, but he bore his sufferings with much resignation and fortitude, considering his naturally irritable disposition, and he retained his senses to the last. Mr. Hare was a native of Pennsylvania, and emigrated with his father to Ross county, Ohio, at the early settlement of the State, and from thence he removed to Columbus, in 1812. He was at the public sale of the lots in the summer of that year, and purchased his High Street lot, which has never passed out of his hands since. His character, however, as a pioneer woodman, was formed before he came to Columbus to live, and he always retained his predilections for that kind of frontier life, and never much conformed to the fashions and customs of city life. His manner of living was plain, and even rough; and in his business transactions he was close and precise so much so as to incur with many the imputation of penuriousness and parsimony. His occupation was generally farming or teaming-- not a great worker by any means, but a man of good sense and general information, considering the very limited means of education that the wilds of Ohio afforded in his day. His investments were made with good judgment or luck, and in the lapse of time his real estate increased in value, and he died, it is supposed, worth about $50,000, which he gave by will to the city of Columbus to form a fund for the benefit of the poor and unfortunate of the city, and to be under the control of the City Council-- the income (not the principal) to be applied to that purpose. This appears to have been a cherished idea with him; and had his estate been sufficiently large to have also established his children in suitable business, there is, perhaps, no one but what would have commended his act. But when we consider that he has some eight or nine children, generally in moderate circumstances, it seems to put another phase upon the old gentleman's benevolence. He was a great part of his life a member of the Methodist church, but the latter part of it he was not. He was fond of reading and talking on politics, but it is believed never was a candidate for office but once some twelve years ago, when the Democratic party gave him a nomination for Senator. William Dennison (now Governor) was the opposing. Whig candidate, and Mr. Hare was defeated by a small majority. Not long after this an unhappy difficulty took place between him and his wife, which resulted in a separation. The children, it is said, sympathized with the mother, and this may have had something to do in shaping the character of the will. Mr. Hare was as honest, but exact man, who wished to do about right; but his misfortune was that he inherited an ungovernable temper, that neither his religion nor his subsequent philosophy could control.
