JACOB M. QUICK, prominent lumber dealer of Windsor, New York, is a scion of a family that has been foremost
in the affairs of Windsor for many years. His brother was active in the lumber business for many years, and his
father was one of the worthy citizens of the community.
Mr. Quick was born in Accord, Ulster county, New York, April 30, 1857, son of James, born August 1, 1821, and Jane
(Wheeler) Quick, born July 15, 1820, in the town of Rochester, New York. The public schools were the source of
his education, and the years have been filled with intelligent and extensive reading which has supplemented the
meagre training found in the district school in his boyhood days. At a very early age he became interested in the
lumber business in association with his brother, and for almost a quarter of a century this has been one of the
important business industries of Windsor. Although Mr. Quick is a most public spirited man, he has not been very
active in public affairs, but he never shirks his share of the burden. He 'is fraternally a member of the Improved
Order of Red Men, and his religious connection is with the Baptist church.
Mr. Quick married, in 1880, at Hancock, New York, Rose Bowen, daughter of William and Sally Ann Bowen, and they
were the parents of a daughter, Eva Quick, who is now deceased.
