Biography of Merritt H. Dailey


Dailey, Merritt H., M. D. S., Newstead, p. o. Akron, is a son of Marret Dailey of Oakfield, Genesee county, N. Y., and was born June 15, 1848. His father was a mechanic of considerable note and was formerly engaged in business in Oakfield, and died in 1878. Dr. Dailey was the second of five children and early had to assume heavy responsibilities, not only in making his own way, but in caring for others in the family. His early education was obtained at the Cary Collegiate Seminary at Oakfield, and at the age of nineteen he went to Akron and entered upon a clerkship in the store of John Wainright, the leading merchant in the village. After two years' service he engaged in the jewelry business, opening a store on Main street, but during this time he became ambitious to enter the dental profession and became a student in the office of Dr. A. H. Fowler, a well known dentist in Batavia. Having completed his studies and passed his examinations, he returned to Akron to take up the work, and from that time to the present there has been no halt in the progress of his success. Dr. Dailey has in Akron one of the finest and best equipped offices in Erie county, besides having an office in Buffalo where he spends every Tuesday and Thursday of each week. In 1889 he received from the State the degree of M. D. S., after years of assiduous work. In 1868 he married Anna E. Wainright, daughter of his first employer in Akron.
