Biography of Nicholas J. Furlong


Furlong, Nicholas J., Buffalo, is a native of Buffalo and has resided in that city all his life. He was born August 8, 1867, a son of William and Mary (White) Furlong. His education was obtained in the public schools and at Bryant & Stratton's business college, from which he was graduated in 1884. Being well qualified by his business education he became bookkeeper for the firm of Russ & Wertheimer, filling the position for two years and then entering the employ of the Standard Oil Company at the Atlas works in the same capacity. After a term of service extending over three years he received an appointment as clerk in the city treasurer's office, and in 1887 passed the civil service examinations for the postal service, receiving an appointment as clerk. In 1892 Postmaster Gentsch, recognizing the integrity and ability of Mr. Furlong, appointed him to the responsible position of superintendent of Station "D," one of the most important sub-stations in the city, employing a force of eight carriers and four clerks and dispatching more outgoing mail than any sub-station in Buffalo. Mr. Furlong discharges the duties of this position with credit to himself and to the department and enjoys the confidence and esteem of a wide circle of friends. In 1895 he married Mary, daughter of Michael Rogers of Buffalo, and they have one daughter, Estelle M., born June 25, 1896.
