Broome County, NY Biographies





LEWIS BENJAMIN PIERCE - The garage and sales station conducted by Lewis B. Pierce and C. F. Angell in the town of Endicott, New York, has been steadily growing during the three years it has been in existence, and is one of the progressive business establishments of this prosperous and thriving community.

Mr. Pierce was born December 28, 1890, in Leraysville, Pennsylvania, the son of Fay H. and Cora (Johnson) Pierce; his parents have followed farming there for many years and are among the esteemed citizens. Mr. Pierce was educated in the public schools, and at an early age began his experiences in making his own way. He worked with his father about the homestead and then, in order to follow an inclination which he had for things of a mechanical nature, he apprenticed himself to learn the trade of machinist, which subsequently led to the repairing of automobiles and similar work. With the true business insight which has characterized his entire career, Mr. Pierce was not satisfied until he had engaged in this line of business on his own account and in 1919, with a partner, he opened a garage and sales station. He has achieved results and much credit is due to his energy and determination.

Mr. Pierce is identified with the State Bank of Endicott, and is a member of the Republican party.

Lewis Benjamin Pierce married, December 28, 1912, in Wyalusing, Catharine Gaylord, born June 10, 1891, daughter of Wallace W. and Anna (Clapper) Gaylord, and they are attendants of the Presbyterian church of Endicott.
