  • Note:
    John Park Agnew, son of John Agnew and Elizabeth (Park) Agnew, was born at Ebensburg, Penn., December 25, 1819 or 1820, and died June 7, 1892. He was an elder in the Presbyterian Church 1839-92; Member of the Board of Aldermen, Alexandria, 1870; married, September 10, 1846, Matilda Elizabeth, daughter of John Lewis Thomas, of Cumberland, Maryland, and
    Matilda Louisa (Seeley Thomas, his wife. John Park Agnew was for many years one of Alexandria's most prominent citizens, and was a successful business man of three cities, Georgetown, Washington and Alexandria. He was descended from Captain James Agnew, who was born in Scotland in 1701, from the Agnews of Lochnaw. John Park Agnew was the father of ten children; Park, David Smith Edward Lewis, Augustus Harrison, Leonora Matilda, Ann Rebecca, Mary Viginia, Lily, Minnehaha, and Margaretta Linton.
    John Park Agnew was a most worthy descendant of David Agnew and Mary Irwin. His whole life gave evidence of the genuineness of his Christian character. He was distinguished for superior intellectuality, and for his universal kindness and gentleness. But with all his gentleness he possessed great decision of character. His death was a great loss to the city in which he lived, for he was one of its most enterprising and distinguished citizens. After a long and useful life, he died in the full possession of his faculties, and in the enjoyment of perfect peace, and with a bright hope of a happy immortality through faith in Jesus Christ. John Park Agnew was an own cousin of Dr. D. Hayes Agnew, the noted physician, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and resembled the latter in the loveliness and strength of his character.
