He left a house and lot in Hudson, besides his Copake farm of three hundred acres, bought in 1856, at the cost of eighteen thousand dollars, and now occupied by his son Walter. :p.This son grew up on the farm, and went to school, showing himself to be a smart lad. At the age of twenty-four, October 20, 1869, he married Emily Sweet, daughter of Fyler D. Sweet, and sister of his brother :ih1.Sweet:i2.Emily:i2.Fyler D. Norton's wife. They began their life on the original farm above alluded to. In 1882 they bought another farm in Ancram, of two hundred :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Ancram and ten acres, which is managed by a tenant, both estates being devoted to general husbandry. The excellent family residence was built in 1849. One child, Lulu, died in infancy. Another daughter, :ih1.Holsapple:i2.Lulu:i2.Anna:ih1.Hoysradt:i2.Perry S. Anna, is the wife of Perry S.

Mr. Holsapple is a Democrat, and has held several town offices. He is rightly regarded as a man of surpassing enterprise, a driver in his business; and his noble wife walks with him even handed. Blessed are the toilers of the soil! Ralph Waldo Emerson has well said,- :lq.The first farmer was the first man, and all historic nobility rests on possession and use of land.:elq. :p.Another writer has written, with equal wisdom,- :lq.Agriculture is the noblest of all alchemy; for it turns earth into gold, conferring upon its cultivator the additional reward of health.:elq. :h3.W. Frank Holsapple :p.W. Frank Holsapple:fn.Biographical Review, p. 123-125:efn. is the :i1.Holsapple:i2.W. Frank owner of twenty-four acres in the eastern part of Hudson, on which :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Hudson stands a noble mansion known as the Rossman Homestead. Situated :ih1.Dwelling House:i2.Rossman Homestead on an eminence, and embowered among shade trees of every description, it overlooks the Catskill Mountains and the lovely Hudson River, as well as the city bearing the same name. By profession, the proprietor of this beautiful estate is an attorney; but he is also largely engaged in brokerage, in connection with real estate, besides being President and Trustee of the Union Knitting Company, whereof :ih1.Companies:i2.Union Knitting Company he was one of the organizers when it was incorporated in 1881, and which now employs two hundred people in the manufacture of men's shirts and drawers, the central offices being located in Hudson and New York. Associated :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Hudson :ih1.New York:i2.New York City with Mr. Holsapple as Secretary and Vice-President are Messrs. John and William H. Hearne. Mr :i1.Hearne:i2.John:i2.William H. Holsapple has been four years a Trustee of the House of Refuge :i1.House of Refuge (a state institution located in Hudson, and till 1893 the only one in New York), where from three to four hundred fallen women find shelter and aid. To this office he was first appointed by Governor Hill, and later by Governor Flower, :ih1.Governor:i2.Hill:i2.Flower the other members of the governing board being the Hon. Harper W. Rogers, :ih1.Rogers:i2.Harper W. the Hon. Samuel J. Tilden, :ih1.Tilden:i2.Samuel J. General Charles Tracy, :ih1.Tracy:i2.Charles, Gen. and the Hon. James Purcell. Of :ih1.Purcell:i2.James many local enterprises and associations Mr. Holsapple has been a promoter, and often the leader. At the early age of twenty-one he was elected Civil Justice of the city, and held the office for eight years. Later he was nominated for County Judge, and ran ahead of his ticket, though defeated by the dominant party. In local Democratic politics he has always been very active, serving in various conventions. :p.Mr. Holsapple was born January 11, 1857, in the city which has ever since been his home, and received his general education in the public schools, with an additional year in the Hudson Academy. At eighteen :ih1.Schools:i2.Hudson Academy he had the privilege of entering the law-office of the deceased John B. Longley, then District Attorney. Admitted to :ih1.Longley:i2.John B. the bar in January, 1879, at the age of twenty-two, he began business on his own account, and has gone on from year to year with increasing prosperity, occupying an unusually fine set of offices at 403 Warren Street, in the old Clark Building; for he is a live man, and takes pains to keep up with the times, whether giving his attention to financiering or to real estate. Himself a representative of one of the old county families, he has been brought into close relations with the foremost men of Columbia County. The great-great-grandfather, John Holsapple, was born in Germany in 1710. He was an early :ih1.Holsapple:i2.John colonist in this region, and probably brought his wife with him when he settled on his farm, in what is called Ghent, where he died in the :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Ghent beginning of this century. His son, John Holsapple, was also a Ghent :ih1.Holsapple:i2.John :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Ghent farmer, born in 1752 and dying in 1836, and married about the beginning of the Revolution to Hannah New, who lived to be very old. Their :ih1.New:i2.Hannah son, William Holsapple, was born in 1804, and died in 1849, at the :ih1.Holsapple:i2.William comparatively early age of forty-five. His wife was Eva Christina Rossman, daughter of John I. Rossman. Their :ih1.Rossman:i2.Eva Christina:i2.John I. son, John Wellington Holsapple, was born the very year his grandfather :ih1.Holsapple:i2.John Wellington died, 1836, on the Ghent farm, and came to Hudson in youth as a clerk; but, the war breaking out when he was twenty-five, he enlisted in Company K of the Fourteenth Infantry Volunteers of New York. Returning :ih1.Civil War:ih2.14th Infantry Volunteers of New York:i3.Company K after several years service to Hudson, he became connected with the railroad mail business, in which he still continues. His wife, Alida Van Deusen, was born in Claverack, the daughter of an early :ih1.Van Deusen:i2. Alida :ih1.New York:ih2.Columbia County:i3.Claverack settler. Of their five children, our subject was the first. The other four were: John Holsapple, named for his father, and dying when only ten years old; George A. Holsapple, manager of the Columbia Hotel, :ih1.Illinois:i2.Cook Co.:i3.Chicago :ih1.Hotels:ih2.Chicago:i3.Columbia Hotel Chicago, Ill.; Clinton D. Holsapple, still a resident of Hudson; and Samuel N. Holsapple, :ih1.Holsapple:i2.John:i2.George A.:i2.Clinton D.:i2.Samuel N. who is in his brother's office. Mr. W. F. Holsapple was married in 1885 to Lottie T. Burdwin, a very superior lady, who has borne her husband :ih1.Burdwin:i2.Lottie T. four bright boys - Frank B., Lloyd B., Earle Taylor, Ralph Tilden, all :ih1.Holsapple:i2.Frank B.:i2.Lloyd B.:i2.Earle Taylor:i2.Ralph Tilden of whom are rapidly growing up into the inheritance of an honored manhood, and already sharing the prominence of their parents, not only in the Episcopal Church, which the family attend, but in the foremost society of their native city. In the calm content of middle life Mr Holsapple may well recall the words of Marcus Aurelius, :q.Nothing has such power to broaden the mind as the ability to investigate, systematically and truly, all that comes under thy observation in life:eq. :index.
