CLARENCE E. SLITER - After an industrious and well spent life, Clarence E. Sliter is now enjoying the rest and
repose that is the result of a career of worthy achievement. He was born May 8, 1855, in the town of Lisle, New
York, son of Jonas C. and Frances (Cady) Slither. His father was a prominent and progressive man of his day, being
engaged in farming and in addition, to lumbering.
Clarence E. Sliter's education was such as the district schools of Lisle afforded at that time, and at an age when
most boys are spending their time in outdoor sports, he was assisting his father in the many details incidental
to the work of the farm and shop. In due course of time he succeeded to the management of these enterprises, and
during his active career carried on the success which his father had begun. For eighteen years he followed farming,
and was known throughout Union township as an enterprising and successful agriculturist. For five years subsequent
to his retirement from the former occupation, he engaged in mercantile pursuits until 1905, and at the end of this
time retired from all the active cares of a business life.
Mr. Sliter is a Republican. In 1912 he was county committeeman of the Union District for the Progressive party.
He is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and is a regular member of the Methodist church, of which
he has for the past twenty five years been on the official board.
On September 10, 1886, Clarence E. Sliter married, in Center Lisle, Mary B. Collier, born November 30, 1857, in
Lisle, daughter of Norris and Mary Ann (Sparrow) Collier. They have one adopted daughter, Althea Mae, wife of Charles
H. Fedora, living in Endicott; they have two children: Bernice B. and Charles W.
