First Fifty Years of Cazenovia Seminary


Madison County

Sketches of Students of First Decade.

  JACOB HUNT, M.D., for a number of years practiced medicine at Lowell, Oneida County, exerting a healthful and commanding influence in the community. From early years he was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and was its main stay at Lowell. He removed to Utica, where he has enjoyed public confidence. He married an excellent lady, who seemed eminently suited to make his home a congenial retreat from the cares of his professional life. Her interests were all identified with the Church, to which she made liberal appropriation of her means. She died much lamented in 1869. He afterward married Miss Elizabeth Snyder, of Utica, a most intelligent and excellent Christian lady.
  Dr. Hunt has a nobleness of nature that makes him princely. He is kind and affable, generous and sympathizing; has a high sense of honor, and abhors the vulgar. He is a man of acknowledged piety, and has for many years been a useful class leader in the Church of his choice. He is strongly attached to his Church, but is of the broadest catholicity. His property, as well as his prayers, are consecrated to the cause of Christ and humanity.
