Biography of Fred D. Corey


Corey, Fred D., Buffalo, son of Daniel M. and Angeline (Kennedy) Corey, was born at Black River, Jefferson county, N. Y., May 27, 1863, and is of Scotch-Irish descent. His mother died when he was three years old and he moved with his father to the town of Watertown, where his early life was spent on a farm and attending the district schools. He was graduated from the Watertown High School with first honors and at the head of his class in 1884, and then engaged in teaching; he taught in Jefferson county for three years, and during a similar period was principal of a grammar school at Norwalk, Conn. His success in this profession was marked. The law, however, attracted his attention, and after spending these six years as a teacher he became a student in the office of Hannibal Smith of Watertown, N. Y., where he remained fifteen months. In September, 1891, he moved to Buffalo and completed his legal studies at the Buffalo Law School, from which he was graduated in 1892, being admitted to the bar of this State in the same year. While a student in the law school he was also a clerk in the office of Sprague, Morey, Sprague & Brownell. After his admission to the bar Mr. Corey spent two years in the office of Robert F. Schelling of Buffalo, and on July 1, 1894, formed a copartnership with Edward D. Strebel, under the firm name of Strebel & Corey, which still continues. Mr. Corey has won signal success at the bar and enjoys a large civil practice. He is a staunch Republican, a public spirited citizen, and a member of the Independent Club of Buffalo. August 17, 1887, he was married at Sackett's Harbor, N. Y., to Miss Ella L. Phelps, who died February 18, 1890.
