HENNEN, William Wagner

William Wagner Hennen was born March 31, 1850, in Morgantown, Va., (now West Virginia) and died June 7, 1913, aged 63 years, 3 months and 7 days.  He married Miss Mary Stinehart, of Edinburg, Va., March 8, 1876. He was a member of the M. E. Church, South, in Keyser, W. Va., and of the M. E. Church in Deer Park for five years and a steward in the Methodist church for many years.  His wife, two sons, four daughters, an aged mother, two sisters, Mrs. F. M. Reynolds, Keyser, W. Va., and Mrs. Obed Babb, Martin, W. Va., and a number of nieces and other relatives survive.  Brother Hennen was a faithful man in every position he was called to fill. He was a dutiful, affectionate son, a devoted loving husband, a fond and affectionate father, a conscientious, faithful and liberal steward in the church, the best and most careful mayor any town ever had, and an excellent and careful engineer. Above all, he was a humble, sincere Christian, having made his peace with God and with all his fellow men. His death was peaceful and triumphant.  Much could be said about the life and death of our dear brother if space and time would permit.  The funeral services were conducted at the residence in Deer Park, by Rev. J. H. Cuppett, his pastor, assisted by Rev. D. L. Reid , a former pastor and personal friend, Revs. H. H. Jordan, of the Baptist church and S. E. Baumen, of the U. B. church, on Monday, June 9th at 4 p.m., in the presence of a large concourse of relatives and friends. The Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers of Cumberland and Keyser conducted their part of the funeral services at the grave. The following out of town relatives attended the funeral: Judge and Mrs. F. M. Reynolds, Mr. and Mrs. F. C. Reynolds, Mr. E. B. Reynolds, Mrs. L. T. Carskadon, Mrs. Cliff Kinsey, Messrs. Obed and Frank Babb, Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Markwood, of Keyser; Mrs. E. H. Smith, Misses Brill and Clancy, of Fairmont; and Mrs. L. C. Milholland, of Manheim.  The great profusion of flowers from railroad men, and from relatives and friends in Maryland, W. Va. and Ohio testify to the great popularity of Mayor Hennen.  There is consolation and comfort in the going  away of a life so useful and an end so peaceful as that of Brother W. W. Hennen.  Blessed are the dead who died in the Lord; they rest from their labors and their weeks[sic, works] do follow them.
