Liberty Hose Company Election in 1898

I have worked for many years to document the earliest histories of the various fire fighting units that operated in Pelham during the late 1800s.  Today's posting to the Historic Pelham Blog provides information about the election of officers in the Liberty Hose Company in 1898.  The text of the article is transcribed below followed by a citation to its source.

"Liberty Hose Company Officers.

Liberty Hose Company held an election of officers on Monday evening, the following being chosen:  foreman, James W. Penny; assistant foreman, H. Prindle; secretary, Thomas R. Scott; treasurer, Alexander Kennedy.  Upon the request of the members of the company who have recently received exempt certificates, they were released from active membership and their names were ordered placed on the honorary list."
