Broome County, NY Biographies





HARPER J. NICHOLS - One of the largest dairy farms in Binghamton, New York, is the one owned by Harper J. Nichols, which has an oubput of 900 quarts of milk a day, and much credit is due to Mr. Nichols for his exceptional ability and progressiveness. He was born October 28, 1874, in Windsor, New York, son of Elihu and Elmira (Knowlton) Nichols, and from his boyhood has worked in agricultural pursuits. His father was a thrifty and prosperous farmer, and from him many of the qualities, which have been factors in his success, were inherited by the son.

His schooling was such as the common schools of Windsor afforded, and through extensive reading and observation along his line of work, Mr. Nichols has added greatly to his knowledge. He made a specialty of dairying soon after becoming the owner of his own farm, and each year has added to the number of head of stock and increased his milk production. He distributes retail to many families in Binghamton and also makes large shipments to other cities. in his political views, Mr. Nichols is a member of the Republican party.

On October 4, 1901, at Kirkwood, New York, Mr. Nichols married Elizabeth J. Cline, born June 11, 1851, in Riverside, daughter of John and Caroline (Brigham) Cline, and they are the parents of a son and daughter: Rena J., born October 24, 1902; Leon Z., born August 4, 1904. With his family Mr. Nichols is a consistent member of the Methodist church of Binghamton.
