Mr. Anton KUIN, the father of Mrs. William D. HALL of Washington avenue,
was ninety years old last Friday, St. Valentine’s Day. The Outlook of
February 8 states he was born near old Amsterdam by the Zuyder Zee, and
continues: “Nine years did Mr. Anton KUIN follow the flag of the
Netherlands around and around the world, visiting and revisiting the
East Indian possessions of this enterprising people. After that he came
to Philadelphia, working at his trade of cabinet maker; then to
Cincinnati, and lastly to Steubenville, where after working for some
thirty or forty years at this trade, he spends his declining years with
his daughter, Mrs. Wm. D. HALL, a Hale and hearty Hollander of ninety,
however is not an old man like people of other races at that age. This
hardy old seafaring people carry their years easily. Mr. KUIN is abroad
on the streets, zero or no zero, stepping briskly along, as quickly and
spry as an American of half his age, with his ever companions, his pipe
and his good walking stick. He is a Hollander of the old school, one of
the race whose ships were feared on every sea, and whose names are found
on the headstones in every ancient sailor’s graveyard around the
world. The Dutch have always been a magnificent people.”
Webmaster Note: Born about 1818.
