Notes for JOHN HENDERSON DUFFUS:

From the Passaic Public Library, Passaic New Jersey article entitled History of Passaic and Its Environs, by  William W. Scott, Volume III, Lewis Historical Publishing Co., New York 1922.

 

The Duffus family, have for a number of generations, resided in the city of Dundee, one of the leading seaports of Scotland, situated on the left bank of the Firth of Tay. The first representative of this branch of the Duffus family which furnishes the caption of this review, and of whom we have authentic information, was John H. Duffus, who spent his life's career in the city of Dundee, where he was a successful merchant, and was prominent in commercial circles and in the religious life of the city. He resided with his family at No. 2 Gowrie Place where he spent the latter years of his life in pleasant retirement. John H. Duffus was born November 8, 1815, in the city of Dundee, Scotland, where he was educated and reared in the early years of his manhood. In 1840 he began business as a draper at the top of Horswater Wynd, where he established a successful business during the next ten years. During his early manhood years he learned the trade of a tailor, and after finishing his apprenticeship, worked for some time as a journeyman.

 

He next visited the city of London, with the fine view of further qualifying himself in his chosen line of work, and while in London entered the employ of a Jewish merchant, Solomon, in Charring Cross, and while in London, during the year 1837, he observed the coronation of Queen Victoria. Upon returning to his native town, and after having established a business in his trade, he was one of the first merchants to give a term of credit to his patrons who purchased their cloth at his store. He invariably purchased a stock of merchandise on a cash basis, which enabled him to sell his goods at an average market value, allowing his patrons a term of credit in which to pay for their purchases. At the time when he relinquished his business activities, he purchased a block of buildings on Gowie Place, where he resided with his family. It is further recorded of him and his first wife that the later was an able and  helpful assistant to him in his store during the early years of his commercial career. John H. Duffus became prominent in connection with the Temperance movement during his day, and was an active member  of the Dundee Temperance Society, in which organization he became noted for his assiduous and preserving efforts inducing many people to absolutely abstain from the use of alcoholic spirits. It was also a matter of public interest to the public the fact that he always kept a pledge book in his premises, wherein he kept a record of his work pertaining to the cause of temperance. He frequently spoke on the subject of temperance in public, and became well and favorably known as a speaker. During the many years of his commercial activities, he invariably closed his store for a period of two weeks during the summer season in order to afford to his employees and the members of his family an opportunity for a vacation season. For a number of years, John H. Duffus was a member of the Dundee Parochial Board. He had been frequently solicited to become a candidate for election to the Town Council, but invariably declined to accept political office. He gave much of his time and thoughts assisting and advancing the interest of the Indigent Sick Society, a charitable organization in the city of Dundee. The last ten years of his career, Mr. Duffus suffered from partial blindness caused by a cataract, which affected both eyes. He passed away January 19, 1896, at his home in Dundee, at the advanced age of four score years, leaving a widow, one son and six daughters. He had been an active member of Ward Chapel for a period of forty years. In his political associations he was a Liberal. John H. Duffus had married twice; the only son is the youngest child of his first union, the mother having died soon after the birth of the child.

Generation No. 5

Notes for JOHN (JACK) DUFFUS:

The following appears in "History of Passaic and Its Environs" by Walter W. Scott, Vol. III, published by Lewis Historical Publishing Company, Inc.., New York, 1922 located in the Passaic Public Library, Passaic, New Jersey.

 

John Duffus, son of  John H. and  Josephine referred to above, was born at the family home in the city of Dundee, October 11, 1840. Having been left as an orphan at a tender age, his first ten years were under the care of his foster mother, and thereafter under the care and sympathy of a step-mother, after the second marriage of his father. His early educational training was acquired in the schools of his native city, and while in yet his boyhood years he developed a desire and longing for a seafaring life, which had been graphically pictured to him by his uncle, George Duffus, who had himself been a seafaring man for many years. The boy, having seized upon the first opportunity that presented itself, arranged for a trip to a foreign port on  one of the vessels leaving the port of Dundee, thinking that from that time in his life would be one of possible romance and adventure. An experience, however, after six months on board a trading vessel largely dispelled his illusions, and he yielded not reluctantly to the solicitations of his father to return home and enter high school. Soon after his return to the parental roof, and after laying aside his school books, he decided to learn the art and technique of the carpenter and at once entered upon his newly chosen work. This, however, did not prove entirely congenial to his tastes and expectations; he developed a desire to enter into missionary work and service of the Cross. He discontinued his chosen avocation, and assiduously applied himself to the preparation for entrance to college, and in due time was admitted to Bedford College, England, where in the course of time he became a proficient scholar, and after his graduation preached his first missionary sermon in Ward Chapel, in his native city, where he had formerly worshipped in his early boyhood days. His ambition was to follow in the footsteps of such men as Livingston and Moffat, and he accordingly lost no time in applying to the London Missionary Society for an appointment, and in the due course of time was sent to the Island of Madagascar. In entering upon his newly chosen work, he applied himself to the duties thereof with enthusiastic devotion, having mastered the native langugage in about one year. This greatly increased the sope of his influence among the people of the Island which might have developed to a considerable degree had not an event occured which changed the whole course of his life.

 

The new King had just come to the throne of Madagascar who for a time was the idol of the people, for he had inaugurated many reforms of a civic and religious character. Unfortunately, however, the King was surrounded by evil advisers, who soon let him into dissolute habits. This had an alarming effeect upon the better element of society on the Island, which besought the King to relinquish his evil associates, and to abrogate the treaty, which they had induced him to make with France.

 

The King disregarded the solicitations and good advice of his subjects, and in consequence the people rose in revolt. Their mandate henceforth was "Redress and Reform." The King having refused to accede to the demands of the people, he was dragged from the palace and assassinated. The next day following this tragic event, his widow Rasoherina was proclaimed Queen, amidst the plaudits of the populace. A new constitution was duly ratified on the same day, and the inviolability of the soil of Madagascar was duly declared, and that the sovereign had no right to dispose of any part of it. This action interfered with the French Government, who had threatened to resort to force if the new govern ment under the Queen should withhold its consent to the continuance of treaty privileges. These radical changes brought about a state of chaos and enmity on both sides, and after weary months of fruitless negociations, the Queen, with the consent of her advisors, appointed John Duffus "Rainfirengria- Rainandriandrianna." an embassy duly accredited to the courts of Napolean the Third and Queen Victoria.

 

The French Government received Rosoherina's representatives with icey coldness, and plainly intimated to them that their presence on French soil was unwelcome. In England they were courteously received, were entertained by nobility, and introduced into barious diplomatic circles, and were also presented to Queen Victoria at Buckingham Palace. Nevertheless, the British Government refused to intervene in their behalf with the French Government.

 

The failure of their mission was a sore disappointment to the Madagascar representatives, for they well knew that censure, if not vengence, awaited their return to Madagascar. Mr. Duffus, as a member of the Mission, realizing that in his own case at least, discretion might prove the better part of valor, took leave of his associates at Suez, and returned to England as a private citizen.

 

A few months later, John Duffus decided to sail for America, and immediately upon his arrival here traveled throughout the various states before permanently settling in the then fast developing town of Passaic, New Jersey, where he found favorable opportunities for advancement. He accordingly engaged in the real estate and insurance business, having met with a marked degree of success from the beginning. His reputation and influence soon became recognized by his fellow citizens, and he was elected to the office of city clerk, and also that of justice of the peace. Mr. Duffus later settled in New York City, where he had been a resident for a period of over twenty years, and there engaged in clerical work. During his spare hours he occasionally contributed articles to the public press, and in the course of time became noted as a writer of lay sermons. He frequently, while in a reminiscent mood, lamented the fact that he did not re-enter the ministry when he returned to England, and could have carried the message of salvation to some heathen land.

 

In his church connections, John Duffus was broadminded, and was entirely free for servilty of creed or form. During the many years of his active life he held membership with several church denominations, but singularly enough, he had with his devoted wife, for the past six years been members of the Broadway Tabernacle, thus ending as he began in the Congregational faith. It can be correctly stated, however, that through all the vicissitudes of his life his faith in God never wavered.

 

John Duffus had twice married. His first wife, whose maiden name was Georgie Mott, was born August 31, 1845, died October 10, 1880, the daughter of Benjamin and Louisa Mott, of Long Island. Of this union were born two sons, John R., and George S, of whom further. He married (second), his wife having survived him at the time of his death, which occurred February 20, 1912, in the City of New York.

The following appears in "History of Passaic and Its Environs" by Walter W. Scott, Vol. III, published by Lewis Historical Publishing Company, Inc.., New York, 1922 located in the Passaic Public Library, Passaic, New Jersey.

 

George Stuart Duffus, son of John and Georgie (Mott) Duffus, was born at the family home in the town of Passaic, Passaic County, New Jersey, February 5, 1874. His early educational training was acquired in the schools of Passaic, New Jersey, and he was reared to early manhood years under the parental roof. Soon after laying aside his school  books, he began to take up the practical duties of life, and for some time was employed in the capacity of passenger and freight brakeman on the Eire Railroad, and in 81897 he was promoted to the position of train flagman, resigning June 30, 1891. He entered into the service of the Passaic post office, in the capacity of subūcarrier, June 21, 1901 and on July 1, 1901, he advanced to the position of regular letter carrier in the city of Clifton, where he continued actively engaged during the next five years. he was advanced to the position of clerk in charge of the Clifton post office, the duties of which he faithfully executed for some time, and was later advanced to the position of superintendent in charge of the post office of the city of Clifton. He continued in that capacity up to September 19, 1917, at which time the drafted men of the city of Clifton bade farewell to their friends and their country, and began their preparations for finally going overseas to take part in the great World War. On this same date, September 19, 1917, George S. Duffus allied himself with Herman G. Scheel, and promptly engaged in the real estate business, and established an office on Main Avenue, Clifton. In this undertaking the firm of Duffus & Scheel met with an immediate and marked degree of success as a result of their enterprise and practical business judgment, with straightforward methods they applied in all of their business transactions. The firm of Duffus & Scheel have become identified with numerous land improve- ments and real estate enterprises in the cities of Clifton, Passaic and the surrounding community, and have also contributed largely to the material growth and development of the various communities wherein their activates have been centered.

 

George S. Duffus was elected a member of the City Council of Clifton in 1918 for a term of two years. Soon after entering upon his official duties, he was chosen by the board as chairman of the finance committee. He has also served as a member of the Board of Estimate during the year 1919. During the activities of the Red Cross Organization, Mr. Duffus contributed of his time and substance to the Red Cross Work, and was also an ardent worker during the various periods of the drive of the Liberty loans.

 

George S. Duffus married May 21, 1893, Mary Florence Davis, born July 26, 1875, of Ellenville, New York. She is the daughter of Freeman and Mary Ann Davis. Of this union were born three children as follows: 1. Isabell, born May 10, 1894, died August 5, 1894. 2. Lillian May, born May 19, 1895. 3. Viola Adelia, born October 19, 1897.
