I read in the Belknap forum that his name was "Columbus Quick" (maybe "Christopher Columbus Quick"?), but I don't know if that's accurate. Most newspaper articles and family obituaries refer to him simply as "C.C. Quick". He was married to Laura Belknap. Since she's not listed among the survivors, she apparently died before C.C. did.
Christopher C. Quick
Christopher C. Quick, one of the oldest and most highly respected citizens of Port Jervis, died at 18 Fowler street at three o'clock on Monday afternoon, January 14th, after a short illness. He was in the 84th year of his age.
Deceased was born in Franklin, Sussex county, N. J., and was the son of William H. Quick and Rebecca Ford Quick. For over 60 years he was a resident of this city, where he was in the Erie railroad service and was identified with various business interests. He was the oldest member of the Port Jervis Lodge of Masons, having recently celebrated his 55th anniversary as a Mason.
The surviving relatives are two sons: William H. Quick, of Cortland, N. Y., and Benjamin C. Quick, of Syracuse, N. Y.; one daughter, Miss Catherine H. Quick, of Brooklyn, N. Y.; and one sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Kipp, 92 years of age, of Hackensack, N. J.
Friends wishing to view the body may do so this evening from 6:30 to 9 o'clock at the house, No. 18 Fowler street. The funeral, which will be private, will be held at the house, No. 18 Fowler street, in charge of the Port Jervis Lodge of Masons, at 1_ a. m. on Wednesday, January 16th. Rev. Willard Conger[?] will officiate. The interment will be at the convenience of the family."
