Part 2

Clyde, Huron, Newark, North Rose, Red Creek


In the year 1873 J. William Strang of Junius, Seneca County, became interested in the Grange movement. He acquainted himself with the aims and purposes of the order and was convinced that it was a force for programs and betterment of farmers. Mr. Strang visited many farmers whom he regarded as likely to sympathize with Grange movement and in most cases secured their names on the charter of the proposed Grange.

On the eighth of January, 1874, a meeting of the farmers of the Town of Galen and vicinity was called at the Town Hall at Clyde and Grange No. 33 was instituted by George Sprague, then Secretary of the New York Grange with a full charter membership of twenty-seven.

At the first regular meeting of Clyde Grange, drill in the degree work was an important part of the proceedings. The total number of initiates during the first year was sixty.

In 1876 the Grange Library was recommended. Several members brought books for the purpose of forming a nucleus of a Grange Library. A special fund was set aside to buy books and an annual party was held each year with a turkey supper in the Town Hall and a dance afterwards.

Since the organization of the Grange its meetings have been held in four different buildings. In 1929 Clyde Grange moved into its own new hall. While we still have an indebtedness, we are able to pay some on the principal each year.

The growth of Clyde Grange has never been phenomenal, but always gratifying. We now have a membership of about four hundred. We have the honor of having nine Golden Sheaf members, four of whom are still living. We also have a total of ninety-seven Silver Star members.

With our degree team, our tableaux, our balanced lecturer's program, our Juvenile Grange, all of these things work for the betterment of the order and mutual help of the members.

Huron Grange was organized Feb. 20, 1874, at the home of Luther Weed on Dutch Street in Huron by Lewis H. Clark of Sodus and a Deputy Strang. There were twenty-eight charter members: Mr. and Mrs. Luther Weed, Mr. and Mrs. Ichabod Brink, Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Green, Mr. and Mrs. James Green, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Dickinson, Mr. and Mrs. Ephrian Munger, Mr. and Mrs. Emerson Abbott, Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Demmon, Alonzo Lampson, G. A. Slaght, Henry Gillett, Wm. Sandell, Emory Parsons, Smith Payne, Egbert Delong, Horace Demmon, Spencer Terbush, David Green, and Susan and Kezia Dickson. Luther Weed was named as the first Master, J. Witkins Demmon as Secretary and J. C. Dickinson as Lecturer. The Grange received its charter on Aug. 4, 1874, and was incorporated in April, 1882. For a time meetings were held in Dutch Street School House then in Cosads Hall and then in the Town Hall. In 1883 land was purchased and a two story hall, 22 by 58 feet erected. The installation in 1884 was probably the first meeting in the new hall. On April 2, 1904, it was voted to organized a Juvenile Grange and on May 3, 1904, State Master, E. B. Norris of Sodus organized Juvenile Grange No. 1 the first in New York State. Clarence Wraight was the first Master and Mrs. W. W. Lefavor the Matron. The Juvenile was dormant for a time but has lately been reorganized and is now prospering. During the sixty years of its existence this Grange has had only eleven Secretaries: J. W. Demmon, G. A. Slaight, A. F. Dowd, C. L. Webb, Dana P. Waldron, Robert Stanley, Gertrude Hatcher, Bessie Olmstead, D. H. Miller, Ethel Blaisier, Emma Phillips and Irene Andrews. The high tide in its membership was two hundred fifty-six. At present about one hundred eighty are enrolled. In May, 1934, this Grange celebrated its sixtieth anniversary with State Master Fred J. Freestone in attendance and who at the same time formally dedicating the hall which had been in use for fifty years.

Newark Grange No. 366

The Newark Grange was organized on Monday evening, December 13, 1875, with forty-two charter members. The only living one is R. S. Post of St. Petersburg, Florida. The late James H. Miller was the first Master. During the first ten years after the organization, the Grange had hard sledding. In October of 1885, seventeen candidates were initiated. Miss Minerva McLaughliln is the only living one of these candidates. In 1910 when A. G. Leroux was master, 115 were given the third and fourth degrees as a result of a membership drive. From 1884 to 1889 Grange fairs were held in the Opera House and nothing was spared to make them a success and much artistic work was done in many lines. We often recall the beauty spots created by Mrs. C. F. Lincoln, Mrs. B. D. Foster and Mrs. Eben Barten. These fairs were undoubtedly the means of starting the town fair. In 1885 with the proceeds of the fair a library was started with the purchasing of $50 worth of books. On December 13, 1900 the twenty-fifth anniversary was celebrated with an elaborate program. The first Juvenile Grange was organized December 5, 1905. In December, 1907 the Grange purchased the lot on which the building stands. The building was erected after many months of planning and deliberation and here A. M. Lincoln and Mrs. R. S. Post spent much time on the financial planning with Abram Garlock on the job all the time. The building was dedicated on March 8, 1911 with appropriate ceremonies and at the time it was judged as the finest Grange building in the state. In 1925 the Fiftieth Anniversary was celebrated with National Master Lowell as principle speaker. Former Governor Miller of Ohio paid a splendid tribute to the order, when he said, "The Grange has been behind every progressive movement that sought to uplift and help humanity." He also said that many of the great movements that have been adopted in this country were either proposed or advance by the Grange.
