Mrs. Hannah Parsons, one of Dr.Haskins’s three widowed sisters, who livedwith him at the rectory, is also critically ili. She was not told of his death last night, but inquired continually after the condition of her brother, whom she supposed to be ill in another room.The funeral arrangements will not be made until Bishop Littlejohn of Long Island has been consulted. It is expected, however, that the services will be held in St. Mark's Church.Dr. Haskins was born in Waterford. Me., May 13, 181.5. His maternal grandfather was the Rev. William Emerson of Waterford. father of the Rev. William Emerson of Boston. Early in life Dr. Haskins entered business with his brother in Boston. Business life was not to his taste, however, and at the end of two years he returned to Waterford, tjoon after entering Bridgeton Academy to prepare for the ministry. He entered Union College in 1834, paying his way through college with money earned by teaching school in Canada during vacations. He was graduated from Union College in 1836, and from the General Theological Seminary, in this city, three years later, being ordained a Deacon in June, 1839. He was ordained a priest in St. Mark’s Chapel, which preceded the present St. Mark’s Church, in 1840, and being called to the charge of that parish, preached his first sermon as rector of St. Mark’s on the second Sunday of October. 1840.This was the beginning of Dr. Haskins’s tile work. It was through his efforts that the small white chapel was replaced in 1842 by the present “ ivy-covered church,” which was built of boulders from the stone walls of the farms surrounding old Williamsburg Village. On the sixtieth anniversary of his pastorate last October, Dr. Haskins said to his old parishioners and their descendants who had gathered in St. Mark's Church to do him honor:“ During my ministry in this parish I have baptized 4,000 persons. I have presented to the Bishop for confirmation 1,528 in all. and have received at communion 2,391) members of the church who received the Lord’s Supper first from my hands. I have united in marriage 1,585 couples, and. as far as I know, only one of these persons has sought divorce. Thousands upon thousands I have instructed in the catechism and Scriptures, attending to their spiritual needs in person on Sunday afternoons. It is to this that I attribute the fact that twenty-five ministers have gone from this parish.”Church statistics, however, inadequately conveyed an appreciation of the work done by Dr. Haskins. It was the close personal relation which he had always kept with his parishioners that endeared him to them. There are few surviving .old enough not to have looked upon him as a father as long as they can remember. It was regard for him that kept many parishioners with St. Mark’s when more magnificent and more conveniently situated churches had been built in that section of Brooklyn. Dr. Haskins will probably have no successor as rector of old St. Mark’s, as the building will shortly be torn down to make way for the new East River bridge.Dr. Haskins was married three times. His last wife was a Miss Wildman of Danbury, Conn. She died fifteen years ago after a married life of twenty-seven years. He was the father of four children, all of whom died in their infancy.
