Notes for Ira Harrison Condit
His only education was that afforded by the little village school, yet he made the most of limited opportunities and what he lacked in book knowledge he made up in good judgment and hard common sense. He was a live business man in his day and speculated extensively in real estate and was in his early days a well known contractor in Essex County. He always took an active part in politics and was on old line Whig until the organization of the Republican party, with which he united, and heartily endorsed its principles. He never desired office, but served in the Board of Chosen Freeholders from 1871 to 1874. At one time he owned a large part of what is now Llewellyn Park and used it for farming purposes, which occupation he carried on in addition to his general business. In 1855 he sold one hundred acres to Llewellyn S. Haskell, and moved to Roseland in 1858. He watched with pride the transformation of his old farm into the beautiful retreat which it is today and gave to the immortal Haskell many valuable suggestions. Mr. Condit was still at his death a large landholder in West Orange, Livingston Township and Morris County. Among other tracts he owned the original farm of Aaron Kitchell, his wife's grandfather. A few years before his death he co-operated with his daughters and his brother-in-law, Elias Mulford, in the organization of the Roseland Presbyterian church. After more than sixty-eight years of happy companionship, Mrs. Condit died. He was deeply affected by the death of his wife, but the affectionate care of his children prolonged his life.7
