Rensselaer County, New York Biographies





Darroch's, John G., father, William Darroch, was a long time resident of Hoosick Falls, coming here in 1836. He was a cotton manufacturer and boss spinner in the Caledonia Cotton Mills. John Darroch was born at Bennington, Vt., but has spent most of his life here, universally respected. He engaged in the tinsmith business and carried a varied line of stoves and hardware. He married Anna Eliza Joslin, daughter of the late Isaac M. Joslin of this place. She died in 1888, aged fifty six years. In the winter succeeding her death Mr. Darroch placed a pulpit and lectern in St. Mark's church in memory of her who had been a beloved member of that denomination. In this church John G. has a record equaled by few of its members. He has been vestryman since 1860 and treasurer since 1866, and is a prime mover in its temporal and spiritual advancement. For thirty four years he has been identified with the Masonic fraternity, and Master Lodge several years; he has also held various village offices
