Hamilton Fish (August 3, 1808 – September 7, 1893) was an American statesman and politician who served as the 16th Governor of New York, a United States Senator and United States Secretary of State. Fish has been considered one of the best Secretaries of State in the United States' history; known for his judiciousness and reform efforts during the Grant Administration. Fish settled the controversial Alabama Claims with Great Britain through his development of the concept of international arbitration.Fish kept the United States out of war with Spain over Cuban independence by coolly handling the volatile Virginius Incident.

In 1875, Fish initiated the process for Hawaiian statehood, by having negotiated a reciprocal trade treaty for the island nation's abundant sugar supply. Fish organized a peace conference and treaty in Washington D.C. between South American countries and Spain. Fish worked with James Milton Turner, America's first African American consul, to settle the Liberian-Grebo war.President Grant stated that Hamilton Fish, above all, was the person whom he most trusted for political advice.

Wentworth, John Broadhead, D.D., a Methodist Episcopal minister, was born at Bristol, N. 11., Aug. 29, 1823. After graduating from the University of Vermont in 1848, he joined the Genesee Conference in 1851, serving two years as principal of Coudersport Academy, three times as presiding elder, and six times as a member of the General Conference of his Church. He died Aug. 6,1893. He was author of The Logic of Introspection. See Minutes of the Annual Conferences (Fall), 1893.
